Sansa Stark isn’t in my top three favorite Game of Thrones characters. Many would agree that she didn’t start out as a likable character in earlier seasons.

R. Kelly Is Allegedly Holding Women Against Their Will in a ‘Sex Cult’

I always thought R. Kelly was a sketchy man when I heard about him having sex with a minor back in 2002. Not to mention that he also peed in her mouth. (Ugh.) While he was never jailed for his crimes, it doesn’t mean he’s stopped his predatory ways. Last night, reports found that R. […]
