Carole Baskin has had a horrible reminder of the past when her ex-husband's family decided to coincidentally buy an ad slot during her Dancing With the Stars debut.

The reality star had no idea about the stunt until 10 minutes before it was time to hit the dancefloor.

The advert was an emotional plea to the public to disclose any further information that they might have had about the "disappearance" of Carole’s millionaire husband, Don Lewis, and it was delivered by Don's children as well as his PA and attorney.

But Carole didn't let that stop her...

Even despite the commercial distracting viewers from her performance (which might have actually been a good thing considering she's got a low-low score of eleven), the reality-star turned dancer had a savage response for all the haters. Click here for the full story.

If you thought Carole was having a rough week, then you probably don't want to hear about how Prince Harry has been left "demoralized" after he was stripped of his military titles.

If you're a fan of the royals, you'll know that the prince has been extremely dedicated to his role in the military.

But because he's given his royal titles up, this harsh consequence has quickly followed.

And of course, this has been a bitter pill for him to swallow.

In Meghan Markle's book, Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand offered us an insight into the whole thing, saying "the most demoralizing aspect of the new deal was his [Prince Harry] being stripped of his honorary military appointments that had been awarded to him as a senior royal." Read more about this "new deal" the former royal couple has been offered.

As children start returning back to normality, whatever that means during a global pandemic, schools are now implementing new rules to try and keep students safe.

But there are some situations that they just cannot prepare for...

via: YouTube

At Gateway Middle School, Anthony Ruelas was suspended for "breaking the rules" after he decided to against the teacher's instructions to "remain calm and seated" while a fellow student in his class was having a severe asthma attack.

Instead of waiting for the nurse's email, like the teacher was, he carried the girl to the nurse's office.

via: YouTube

However, instead of being applauded for potentially saving her life, Anthony was written up and suspended for 2 days by the head of the school district. His mom was outraged, as were the public and they rallied round to offer their support to the fifteen-year-old. Click here to find out what they had to say.

The President of the United States has never really been known for his manners, quite the opposite really, but hardly anyone ever calls him out for it.

Until now.

via: Twitter

Donald Trump finally met his match after Ellesia Blaque, a Democratic voter who was asking him about the Republican healthcare plan, stopped the President from interrupting her mid-question with a good ol' fashioned "Please stop and let me finish my question, sir." Polite and bold. We have no choice but to stan.

And of course, she went viral immediately.

Trump looked slightly taken aback by the woman in purple, and weirdly enough, allowed her to carry on with her questioning. Watch the full video of the iconic confrontation here.

The British royals have really dominated the news this week as Prince William and Kate Middleton made the headlines after their savage swipe at Meghan Markle during a birthday message to Prince Harry.

Even though it was supposed to be a happy occasion, Markle fans could not help but notice something very important.

The royal couple decided to post a photo that only included Harry, William, and Kate... Did they forget that Meghan and Archie existed? There are tonnes of photos with all the royals in it, but fans couldn't help but point out that they specifically used one that excluded Harry's family. Petty, if I do say so myself.

And even the picture they used was pretty debatable...

Now I know that Halloween is around the corner, but there is no need for this. If 2020 wasn't bad enough already, now we've got to deal with ghosts. Ghosts. No thank you. I'm out.

And finally...

We bring you the story of Guinness the kitten.

Beth Walden, an animal rescuer from Florida, took in a palm-sized kitten who needed round-the-clock care.

The little one was sadly rejected by his cat mom and at 3-weeks-old, he was only the size of a newborn.

It is very unusual for a kitten this size to survive the first few days.

"I knew he was a little fighter since he had made it three weeks in the condition he was in," Beth shared with Love Meow.

Guinness was very fragile in the first few weeks...

But Beth fed him kitten formula drop by drop, and overnight, it brought the little guy back from the brink. She also cleaned off the crust covering his eyes and treated him for the infection. They didn't know if his eyes could be salvaged but were trying everything they could to help him heal.

Eventually, Guinness started to thrive.

His appetite improved as he figured out how to suckle down the formula through a syringe, and his belly was soon full and round.

Even though he's still small for his age...

Guinness has been growing rapidly and his cheeky personality has been shining through.

Now Guinness is big enough, he loves playing with his big brother, Mr. Tiny Pants.

Guinness looks up to his feline friend and learns how to properly "cat" by intimating everything he does.

It's way too cute...

And just like any other cat, Guinness loves his nap times! "He loves rubbing his face in fluffy blankets. He also loves to make biscuits while he does it," Beth fondly explained.

Guinness is now a huge part of his loving family...

And he couldn't be happier!
