  “When I walked in, it felt like my house … it’s almost like, you know, you hear bluebirds sing and music play.” That’s what San Diego woman Kathy Rowe, 53, says about the Carmel Valley home she bid on in 2011. Despite the fairy-tale beginning, however, this story does not have a happy ending—for Rowe or for Janice Ruhter and Jerry Rice, the people who ended up winning the bidding war and moving into the house. A “devastated, heartbroken” Rowe decided to start playing what she calls pranks on the couple, who had a young child and another baby on the way when they moved in. Rowe, who was recently sentenced for stalking, tells ABC News about her misdeeds in an interview airing tomorrow on 20/20. Among her pranks: billing the couple for $1,000 worth of adult diapers and magazine subscriptions they didn’t order, advertising a fake New Year’s Eve party at their home, and sending Valentine’s Day cards to neighbors’ wives with Rice’s name signed to them.

Cosby “I’m far from finished.”


Bill Cosby apparently channeled Fat AlBert in a statement to the Boston HEarld that includes the line, “Hey, Hey, Hey—I’m Far From Finished.” The statement comes in response to a planned protest of his show at the Wilbur Theatre tomorrow night, and it starts: “Dear Fans: GOD has Blessed me with a wonderful gift to share with all of you. For 53 years I have continued to master this gift, which heals the soul and warms hearts. Laughter! I thank you, the theatre staff (Wilbur Theatre), the event organizers and the Boston Community for your continued support and coming to experience family, fun entertainment.”

Critics were not impressed: “It’s  http://www.newser.com/story/202375/bill-cosby-im-far-from-finished.html

“Dreamy mugshot guy” will soon be “dreamy California inmate.” Jeremy Meeks, the man whose face launched a thousand Facebook comments last June (sample: “I would rehabilitate him so hard”), was yesterday sentenced to 27 months in federal prison after having been convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm. CBS Sacramento reports he’ll also need to complete the 500-Hour Bureau of Prisons Substance Abuse Treatment Program, and though he was ordered to pay a $100 fine, it was determined that he didn’t have the wherewithal to do so.

KRON provides background on the crime: Meeks was stopped around 6:30am on June 18 after police spotted him

As other victims of Metro-North crash are remembered

The investigation into what caused Tuesday’s deadly Metro-North crash in Valhalla, NY, is focusing on how a mother of three described by friends as “responsible” ended up in the crossing as a train hurtled toward her.

She re-entered the car, drove forward on the tracks, and
