‘Lauren’s Lowdown’: Mattress Mack Out $7 Million; Kevin Jonas Is A Dad


Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale should probably stop making LARGE sports bets, lol. About a month ago he lost more than $600,000 to his Gallery Furniture customers during the AFC and NFC Championships, and now he’s out $7 million after losing his Super Bowl bet.

Mack said that if the Seattle Seahawks won the big game, he would give a full refund to anyone who spent $6,000 or more in the previous two weeks and had their furniture delivered by 5pm Sunday.

If you were watching yesterday, then clearly you know that Seattle beat the Denver Broncos 43-8.



Actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman died yesterday from an apparent heroin overdose. He was 46. He won an Academy Award for his role in Capote. According to TMZ, Phillip’s personal assistant found him in his New York apartment with a needle in his arm.

Allegedly Phillip had controlled his addiction and previously remained sober for 23 years until checking into rehab in May 2013.

Speaking of babies…Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle Jonas welcomed a baby girl named Alena Rose Jonas yesterday.
