96 Second News: Kathy Griffin Fired From CNN; Tiger Woods Dashcam Video Is Scary

Lauren Kelly


**Kathy Griffin was just fired by CNN, which means she will not ring in 2018 with Anderson Cooper during their NYE special…which she’s done since 2007.

The network is reacting to the photo of Kathy holding a bloody image of Donald Trump, and even though she apologized, it wasn’t enough for CNN.

As reported, Anderson Cooper also lashed out at his former co-host and friend, saying, “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

**The police have just released the dashboard video of the Tiger Woods DUI arrest, and he’s really out of it.  Scariest part was, that he was out DRIVING on the road like that.

He blew a .000 on the breathalyzer which means no alcohol was in his system, but the prescription drugs made him slur his words, and he seemed completely disoriented. He couldn’t even tie his own shoes.

When the cop asked him where he was going, he said he didn’t know, he just, “likes to drive.” He was asked to recite the alphabet, and when the cop asked if he understood the instructions, he nodded, and said, “Not to sing the National Anthem backwards.”

**Turns out drinking tequila can actually help you lose weight, according to a new study.

Tequila is made from an agave plant, and researchers found that some of the natural sugars in that plant do great things for you.

They lower your blood sugar, they help make you feel fuller, and they help healthy bacteria grow in your mouth and intestines.

The more you know.

**Pink and her husband Carey Hart have been together for 16 years and married for 11. So what is the secret to their successful romance?

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Pink said, “We’ve had two breaks,” Pink revealed. “The first one was about a year. And the second one was 11 months.”

The couple, who have a daughter Willow, 6, and son Jameson, 5 months, split up in 2003 and 2008. Despite these rocky times, it has been more than a decade since their last separation and the two couldn’t be more happy with their lives and raising their children.

**LYFT is back in Houston to give Uber some competition on ride sharing, and speaking of LYFT, what if you called one and Joe Jonas was your driver?

The members of DNCE recently went undercover as drivers for LYFT – with Joe Jonas behind the wheel – to shuttle unsuspecting passengers around downtown Los Angeles.

Wearing a hat and sunglasses, Joe managed to fool all his customers, even when he stopped to pick up fellow bandmates Cole Whittle, JinJoo Lee and Jack Lawless along the way. During one ride, the band plays their latest hit “Kissing Strangers” on the radio, but their customers still don’t put two and two together.

One passenger comes close to identifying Joe, telling him he looks like Joe Jonas. But he keeps his cool and replies, “I get that all the time, it’s ridiculous.” They all eventually revealed their true identities and posed for photos with the passengers.

**Kendall Jenner took to her Instagram yesterday to share a boomerang announcing that she’s “Officially joining the Adidas fam!” In the post, she’s completely decked out in a black signature Adidas track suit and rocking the classic Gazelle sneaker. She smiles while riding in a golf cart in front of a wall adorned with the Adidas logo with “Welcome to the Family” on the bottom.

The model — who has been the face of Calvin Klein, Estee Lauder and Marc Jacobs — is no stranger to the highly popular brand.
