JK Rowling Reveals That There Is A Jewish Wizard At Hogwarts

JK Rowling Reveals That Yes, There Is A Jewish Wizard At Hogwart
Here's two words you probably don't hear strung together too often: "Wizard Jews." Although if you do hear those words in sequence on a regular basis, you probably live cooler lives than we do.

But the non-awesome general public got a dose of Jewish wizardry when J.K. Rowling was answering fan questions on Twitter. One fan, Benjamin Roffman, asked the renowned "Harry Potter" about Jewish representation in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

@jk_rowling my wife said there are no Jews at Hogwarts. I’m a Jew so I assume she said it to be the only magical 1 in the family. Though...

'The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Recap: Star Sighting

December 17th, 2014 9:33am EST
Yo
Aside from a very brief moment when we see Brandi at her "job" as a podcast host, let's call this "the daughters" episode. It was not necessarily that interesting, but it covers the mother gamut of denial, exasperation, substitution and pride.

Yolanda literally has to ride out her daughter Bella's DUI until she can get off Kyle's yacht and get on a plane home. I thought when she got there we'd see her counseling Bella or yelling at her or taking her to her court date, but what we got was her confessional segment explaining away Bella's behavior as a good, smart girl who had a momentary la...

Brad Pitt: People Should 'Stop Reading' Leaked Emails From Sony
Brad Pitt is opening up about the Sony hacking scandal, slamming people who read and disseminated the leaked emails.

According to the Metro newspaper, Pitt commented: "I think someone's conversation, whether in email or in person, should be private.

At the "Unbroken" premiere Monday evening, Pitt said: "I don’t see a difference in News Corp. hacking phone calls and hacking emails. I don't think we should b...

Britney Spears Proves Her New Abs Are All Hers!

Britney Spears Proves Her New Abs Are All Hers - No Photoshop Al
Been questioning the validity of Britney Spears' abs lately?

You're not the only one. Just two days ago, Spears was flaunting it all over the cover of Women's Health Magazine, wearing nothing more than her underwear.

And the former teen pop queen's abs were on display- so much so that one of the magazine cover blurbs was shouting "INSANE ABS" and pointing to Spears' tummy with red ink.

But some aren't buying it. A lot of fans have been quick to think that Photoshop is the reason Spears is looking so fit right now.

Britney Spears says otherwise. A new video has just dropped online that ...

Osbourne then promptly removed her tooth and showed off the gap to the audience. She attempted to put the implant back in its spot; however, she had a difficult time doing so.

"Seriously, has anyone g...

Scarlett Johansson Says She Just Has An 'Okay Body,' Doesn't Lik
Actress Scarlett Johansson, who is known for her sexy curves on screen and off, sat down with Barbara Walters for her Sunday night special, "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014" and told the newswoman that she doesn't think there's anything for people (especially men) to get excited about when it comes to those curves.

"It's an okay body," Johansson said. "I wouldn't say it's particularly remarkable though. I don't like my thighs, my mid section."

The 30-year-old, who gave birth to her first child -- daughter Rose Dorothy -- in August, also said that she's not...
