Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.
Kim Kardashian drops Paris robbery lawsuit
Not long after Kim Kardashian was robbed in the bathroom of a luxury Parisian suite, gossip site MediaTakeOut published allegations that it was all a set-up for Kim to make a bogus insurance claim on her stolen jewelry.

With the whole issues now resolved, we can only assume that MediaBlackOut probably paid an out-of-court settlement after they realized how potentially screwed they were. – BBC News

The downside to this increase in gender balance is an increase in alcohol-related illnesses. – The Guardian
