Earlier this month, 31-year-old Alfredo Malespini of Bradford, Pennsylvania got into a drunken fight with his wife over HIS affair.
And during the fight, Alfredo wanted to take off his wedding ring . . . but couldn't get it off his finger. So he switched to Plan B, which was . . . grabbing his GUN and SHOOTING the ring off his finger.
Believe it or not, that turned out poorly. Alfredo ended up blowing off most of his finger . . . but amazingly, the ring STAYED ON the MANGLED STUMP that was left.
He was taken to the hospital. There's no word on whether the doctors were able to reattach or repair his finger.
Alfredo was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment. He'll make his first court appearance next week.
Here's a photo of Alfredo. He works as a prison guard . . . or, at least, he used to before all this went down.
RYAN SEACREST and JULIANNE HOUGH have broken up. The split was amicable . . . she just got tired of his work schedule . . . which is pretty relentless.
A source says, quote, "He works all the time. He never sleeps. It's a lifestyle she couldn't handle anymore. Work always, always came first. She wants a more low-key life." Ryan is 38, Julianne is 24.
On Saturday, Julianne Tweeted a picture of herself with some friends, along with the hashtag "friends are the best therapy". One of those friends is Nina Dobrev from "The Vampire Diaries". (Instagram)
Just over a week ago, someone stole $100,000 worth of jewelry that Ryan had given Julianne from her car. I doubt that contributed to the split, but . . . it could be. 100-grand is like pocket change to Ryan . . . but it’s $100-GRAND!
TMZ ambushed WYNONNA at an airport, clearly trying to get her to talk smack about TAYLOR SWIFT. They started by asking her to name her favorite Taylor Swift song. Wynonna was stymied for 21 seconds before finally confessing, quote, "I don't know."
Then they asked if she thinks the media gives Taylor too hard of a time. Wynonna didn't hesitate on that one. She answered, quote, "I think the media gives everyone a hard time."
Okay, so then it was time to stir up some fake controversy by asking Wynonna if Taylor Swift "is country."
Wynonna had a pretty good comeback for that. She said, quote, "Yeah, it all fits. It all fits together somehow. And you know what, she writes her own songs. Do you?"
Here's the video. It almost looks like Wynonna is ignoring the first question. She's gazing nowhere in particular while two random dudes have a loud conversation. And then, at 0:21 seconds in, she blurts out her answer.
BLAKE SHELTON learned some valuable TV insights when he played REBA MCENTIRE'S brother on "Malibu Country". He says, quote, "It was amazing to just see that world and see how they work.
"It's a lot of just goofing off, but you've got to be a good goofer to do it right, and they've got the right ones." He was referring to the brilliant cast, which includes LILY TOMLIN and SARA RUE, who played Brenda on "Rules of Engagement".
Speaking of TV . . . Blake's new season of "The Voice" kicks off one week from tonight. After that, though . . . he's going to strap on the guitar and hit the road.
He says, quote, "As soon as the leash gives me a little slack from 'The Voice', I'm going straight back into touring. I can't see myself going from 'The Voice' into more television. I think there will at least be a break there."
In case you missed it . . . MIRANDA LAMBERT met the cast of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" before her concert last Thursday in Macon, Georgia.
Miranda Tweeted a photo of her and the show's 7-year-old star, and wrote, "You better RedNECKonize!" She also Tweeted a pic of her with the entire family.
Wanna Go To Mars?
If you've always dreamed of going into space, this could be an amazing opportunity. There's just one small catch .
A private company called Mars One is looking for people to train for the next eight years, to go on their maiden voyage to Mars in September of 2022. For FREE!
But now, the catch: It's a one-way ticket. So if you sign up, you're basically signing up to DIE ON MARS.
A guy named Bas Landsdorp is the founder of Mars One. He says, quote, "The technology exists to get humans to Mars and keep them alive. The technology to bring humans from Mars back to Earth simply does not exist yet."
Once you're up on Mars, you'll be part of a human settlement and a community where you'll live out the rest of your life. (CBC)
On the bright side, there's no WAY your creditors can track you down. On the down side . . . EVERYTHING ELSE. You can email Bas and his team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HEALTHY HABITS THAT AREN'T....
If you think you don't have a single bad habit, check out this list from "Prevention" magazine of four "healthy" habits that aren't actually that good for you.............
#1) You Come Home From Work and Immediately Get Your Chores Out of the Way.
If your parents made you do your homework right after school, you might think it's the way to go. Because it does SEEM like a good habit.
The problem is, you don't give yourself time to unwind, so your body keeps pumping out the stress hormone cortisol. And research shows that higher levels of cortisol lead to more health issues in the long run.
So it's best to at least give yourself 20 or 30 minutes to unwind before you jump into something like doing taxes or cleaning the living room.
#2) "Hovering" When You're Using a Public Restroom.
This one's for women who don't want to actually touch the seat with their skin. So they kind of stand in a squatting position.
The reason it's bad is because it causes the pelvic muscles to contract, which prevents you from fully emptying your bladder. And when you don't do that, you're more likely to get a urinary tract infection. So the best way to handle it is to use those paper seat liners.
#3) You Brush Your Teeth Right After You Finish Eating.
You've probably heard that you shouldn't brush right after you drink SODA, because soda softens your enamel, which can actually be brushed away.
But the same goes for ANYTHING that's highly acidic . . . including things like citrus fruit, tomatoes, and Gatorade. So if you have anything like that, you should wait at least 30 to 60 minutes before you brush.
#4) You Wash Your Pillowcases Once a Week.
That's better than most people, but washing JUST your pillowcases won't necessarily protect you from dust mites . which about 10% of people are allergic to.
To really protect yourself, you have to wash the actual PILLOWS at least once a month in hot water . . . which most people NEVER do.
