The Sideshow
  • The movie poster for YaVaughnie Wilkins' new documentary (21 Tulips)Apparently, putting up $200,000 worth of billboards to shame her former boyfriend wasn't enough. YaVaughnie Wilkins is taking her heartbreak to the silver screen, releasing a documentary, "The Glamorous Lie," about her relationship with former Oracle Corp. President Charles Phillips.

    "I agreed to executive produce The Glamorous Lie because I wanted to tell my story in my own way. Media interviews alone would not have done my story justice," Wilkins, 43, said in a press release.

    The public airing of dirty laundry began in January 2010, when Wilkins spent a reported $243,000 on several billboards around the country, including in Times Square, attempting to publicly shame Phillips, 53, for ending their eight-year relationship. Her documentary chronicles their relationship and its downfall, featuring interviews with her friends and family.

    Phillips, who serves on President Barack Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board, reportedly attempted to block the film's release. However, his efforts were unsuccessful and the film premiered on Thursday at the Harlem International Film Festival.

    A spokesman for the festival told the New York Daily News that there were initial concerns that Phillips could put the entire venue in jeopardy.

    "We were on hold for a while, and the theater where we are screening the world premiere was concerned, but we managed to alleviate the problems," Nasri Zacharia said.

    Zacharia said Wilkins has agreed to accept full liability for the film, the Daily Mail reported.

  • Canadian lottery winner’s bad luck continues

    For lottery winner Lucien Nault, it might have been better to have no luck at all.

    The 77-year-old Montreal man won $16.9 million in Canada's Lotto 6/49 in 2009, but his life since has been mired with lawsuits and untimely deaths in his family, the Sun News reports.

    Nault recently learned that his son Daniel was struck and killed by a Jeep as he crossed a street near his home in Montreal to retrieve his dog.

    Daniel Nault was returning from the Gaspe region of the country, where he recently buried his wife (and Lucien's daughter-in-law), Therese Rehel, according to the Sun News.

    Rehel died when she drowned at home in a new, lavish pool built with proceeds from Lucien's winnings.

    The couple dined with friends at their favorite steak house to celebrate the opening of the pool, which took all summer to build, a few days before Rehel was found dead in the water.

    Nault had given his son a huge cut of the lottery winnings, but Daniel became upset when his father apparently gave away another

  • In this video, a small pig becomes a hero when it dives into a petting zoo pond to save a drowning baby goat.

    This video made our day, though no one will credit the cameraman with being a hero. At the beginning of the tape, he simply says, "goat in the water," and then continues to film while the animal struggles to stay above water.

    That's when the brave pig dashes into the water, heading straight for the baby goat and nudging it toward the shore. The two animals climb back onto the shore and go about their business.

    The video then cuts to the pig, back to its normal routine, with the cameraman declaring, "And there he is, the hero pig."

    Neymar subbed for own safety, admits Barca boss

    Barcelona boss Luis Enrique said he had to substitute two-goal star Neymar to prevent the Brazilian from being injured as his side's Copa del Rey quarter-final, second leg with Atletico Madrid turned nasty. The Catalans went through 4-2 on aggregate after coming from behind twice to win 3-2 on the night as Atletico were reduced to nine men and were lucky not to be more harshly punished when Arda Turan was only booked for throwing his boot at an assistant referee. "The moment arrived when the game had got ugly and we took off Neymar so it didn't get any more heated," said Enrique. Neymar had already put Atletico's hopes of reaching the last four to the sword well before he was replaced by Pedro Rodriguez 13 minutes from time.
