Good Morning America’s third hour, GMA Day — a weekday afternoon edition — is just about a month old, but stars Michael Strahan and Sara Haines are already passing the co-host chemistry test. And not only during their time on-air.
Just take a look at how they each answered our quiz. It’s clear as Day that these two have found their groove.
Ahead of the Oxygen Media premiere of The Turpin 13: Family Secrets Exposed tomorrow (April 28), Michael Welsh, ITN Productions’ VP of production and development, U.S., tells how the London-headquartered company got access first, and why the timing is right for the story.
In the two-hour television event, acclaimed journalist Soledad O’Brien investigates the story of David and Louise Turpin, who are currently awaiting their preliminary trial for child abuse after allegedly imprisoning, shackling, beating and strangling their 13 children for years in their Perris, California home. The victims ranged in age from two to 29-years-old.
Welsh says he and his executive producer saw the news and immediately sent producers out to California and West Virginia. “Lo and behold, nobody was out hunting. We were shocked and are still shocked to say the least. It was so hot and fresh at the time, we really thought people would be out there
The FBI raid of President Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday signals that the probe into the Trump campaign is spreading far beyond issues in the 2016 election, and that even one of the president’s closest allies might not be safe.
They were searching for evidence of bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations, according to The New York Times, which broke the story.
The search was executed pursuant to judge-issued warrants, according to Cohen’s personal attorney Stephen M. Ryan. Ryan said in a statementthat prosecutors were acting on “a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller,” who
Federal authorities on Friday seized Backpage.com, the classified advertising website long suspected of selling sex, and charged at least one of its co-founders in connection with a human-trafficking investigation.
Backpage is now dark, replaced by a notice about a federal operation including the FBI, U.S. Postal Service and IRS. “backpage.com and affiliated websites have been seized,” the note says.
Co-founder Michael Lacey, of Sedona, Arizona, was charged after the FBI searched his home Friday, according to 12News in Phoenix. A 93-count indictment against him remained sealed as of Monday afternoon.
Lacey is a former newspaper publisher who once co-owned New York’s Village Voice and other alternative weeklies, before launching Backpage.com in 2004 as an alternative to Craigslist.com.
Backpage has been repeatedly accused of virtual “pimping,” with ads for sex that are allegedly tied to prostitution or human trafficking. A Senate investigation found last year that Backpage was involved in 73% of all child
Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009. The King of Pop succumbed to an overdose and died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication after suffering from cardiac arrest. The world continues to mourn the death of the superstar. In life, Jackson was a reclusive celebrity who kept a private personal life. In the aftermath of his death, we’ve seen his three children—Paris Jackson, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael Jackson II—emerge into the spotlight. Here’s where they are now.
At the time of Jackson’s death, his children were literally young kids. Fans remember a young Paris tearfully speaking at her father’s funeral. “I just want to say ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say, I love him so much.” They’re all grown up now. Paris is now 19, Prince Michael is 15 and
On November 20, 2003, singer Michael Jackson was arrested on suspicion of child molestation. More specifically, Jackson was accused of having “substantial sexual conduct” and engaging in lewd contact with a child younger than 14.
Jackson had been in Las Vegas, Nevada shooting a music video at the time the announcement of his status as a wanted man was made.
“Michael would never harm a child in any way,” Jackson’s spokesperson, Stuart Backerman, said at the time. “When the evidence is presented and the allegations proven to be malicious and wholly unfounded, Michael will be able to put this nightmare behind him.”
A decade before, Jackson had settled a lawsuit with the family of a boy who had stayed at Neverland Ranch (the pop star’s bizarre homestead, which resembled a theme park) and claimed that he had been molested. It was settled out of court for a reported $15 million.
As a mother of three children, Paulina felt very strongly about the Michael Jackson case, and was determined to consider all sides of the story. Despite her natural impulse to side with the children, she was among the majority of jurors who felt the accuser, and his family, were simply not credible enough to indict Michael. She also felt she made a connection with Jackson during the trial, and was overwhelmed with emotion after his death. Paulina feels as though the trial stripped Michael Jackson of the one thing in his life that truly brought him joy: spending time with children.
Paulina is appearing on The Jury Speaks, airing tonight at 9p ET.
