August 30, 2019

**You Can AirBnB a House from "Breaking Bad"

If you're a "Breaking Bad" fan, listen up:  There's a house in Albuquerque, New Mexico on AirBnB that was actually used in the show.  It was in Season 5, Episode 3, where Walter and Jesse turn a home that's being fumigated into a meth lab.

The owners have decorated the place with "Breaking Bad"-themed décor, and there are even hazmat suits so you can, quote, "take pictures making it look like YOU are a part of the show!"

The house is $259 a night and sleeps up to 16 people.  It's listed on AirBnB as Breaking Bad House 5.3. 



**JOHN TRAVOLTA would like you to know he did NOT mistake drag queen Jade Jolie for TAYLOR SWIFT at the "VMAs". 

In a new radio interview, he said he was looking for Taylor in the throng of people who "bombarded the stage," and the look he gave Jade was misinterpreted.

He also has no problem with the HYSTERIA though.  Quote, "It was cool, I didn't care . . . If I wear a polka dot tie, if I shave my head, it's headlines.  If I mispronounce something it's headlines . . . so I don't mind that."

But he added that maybe he should have, quote, "gone all the way with it" and given it to Jade . . . because, quote, "that would have been awesome."

**ALEX TREBEK is back to work, taping episodes for the 36th season of "Jeopardy!"  In a promo clip he says, quote, "I've gone through a lot of chemotherapy, and thankfully that is now over. 

"I'm on the mend, and that's all I can hope for right now."  He also said that if they ever do a movie about him, he'd like to be played by BETTY WHITE.

Alex announced back in March that he's dealing with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which isn't good.  But he said, quote, "I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease."
