**The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo isn’t all about big dudes riding bulls. Some of Rodeo Houston’s most fierce competitors are five and six year old kids who wow the crowds night after night in one of the rodeo’s most beloved events – “Mutton Bustin,” and now is your child’s chance to join the fun.

Entries are now open for Mutton Bustin at the 2019 Livestock Show and Rodeo.

All participants must be either five or six years old and weigh less than 55 pounds. You can view the full application >>> here.

If your child is not chosen, there’s still a chance to ride sheep at the Rodeo. You can sign up in the Mutton Bustin’ arena in Kids Country, but participation is on a first come, first serve basis and costs $15.

The 2018 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo begins Feb. 27 and ends on March 18.


**A Conroe nail salon, The Premier Nail Bar, is gaining a lot of attention for its famous Jelly Pedi package with a fun twist.

The Jelly Pedi includes a mixture that turns the spa water into gel…but what makes the pedicure even more fun is the Jell-O shot that comes along with it. (whaaatttt?!)

According to ABC 13, it’s so popular that people who don’t order the Jelly Pedi, still want the Jell-O shot.

“They just see the people beside them get one and they are captivated by it,” Hollis said. And people under the age of 21 can get a Jell-O shot, without the alcohol, of course.

The Jelly Pedi is a very popular service in the nail industry that Hollis and his wife started offering at their first location in Livingston. Their clientele grew so much and so fast that they decided to open another spot closer to the Houston area.



**Bill Cosby’s spokesman says the comedian’s daughter, Ensa Cosby, passed away in Massachusetts. She was 44 years old.

Bill Cosby has a court hearing scheduled this coming Monday and Tuesday ahead of his re-trial on sex assault charges in Montgomery County, Pa.


**’Melrose Place‘ actress Heather Locklear was arrested Sunday night, and charged with domestic violence and battery on emergency personnel.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office told ABC News that deputies responded to the actress’ home in Westlake Village, California, on Sunday night around 9:40 p.m. after a domestic violence incident was reported.

Deputies then arrested Locklear, 56, for felony domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on emergency personnel.

Heather was released on bail. A court date is set for March 13.

**Actor and filmmaker Kevin Smith says he has suffered a massive heart attack.

The New Jersey native posted a photo of himself at the hospital early Monday morning.

The “Clerks” filmmaker says he was in between his comedy shows Sunday night in Glendale, California when he started feeling sick.

“The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”),” Smith said. If he had not gone to the hospital, his doctor says he would have died. “But for now, I’m still above ground!” he said.

**When it comes to living a long life – booze may actually help you live longer than hitting the treadmill.

A new study claims drinking a couple of glasses of beer or wine a day is more important than exercise for living past 90.

A specialist in neurology from the University of California spoke about the research at a recent conference.

She tells British online newspaper The Independent she firmly believes that modest drinking improves longevity.

The study shows people who drank about two glasses of beer or wine a day were nearly 20 percent less likely to experience a premature death.


**Alicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki have called it quits.

“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to coparent,” The American Woman star’s publicist told E! in a statement on Monday, February 26.

Jarecki, best known as the frontman of punk band S.T.U.N., married the actress in 2005 in Lake Tahoe, California. Six years later, they welcomed their first child together, a son named Bear Blue Jarecki. The pair kept their relationship and their child very private, rarely sharing photos on social media and staying mum about their family during interviews.


**Reese Witherspoon took time out of her busy schedule to visit a close friend — her Hollywood Walk of Fame star — while in Los Angeles last Sunday.

Reese posted to her Instagram Story before spending the day promoting her new film, A Wrinkle in Time. “I’m running a little bit late for work today, but it’s really important,” she teased in the first clip. “I heard my friend is really close by, so I wanna go meet her really quick and I want you guys to meet her, too.” She then introduced fans to her beloved Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. “Here she is!”

“Now you’re looking good, girl! That’s right and don’t you let people walk all over you,” she said as she wiped the star down. “I know you’re on the street, but don’t you do that. You’re a queen.”



James Harden scored 24 points to help the Houston Rockets beat the Utah Jazz last night. This was the team’s 13th straight win in a row.
