National Donut Day

NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY – First Friday in June
National Donut Day

This day celebrates the doughnut and honors the Salvation Army Lassies, the women that served doughnuts to soldiers during WWI.

In 1917, the original “Salvation Army Doughnut” was first served by the ladies of the Salvation Army.  It was during WWI that the Salvation Army Lassies went to the front lines of Europe.  Home cooked foods, provided by these brave volunteers, were a morale boost to the troops.

The doughnuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of American soldiers.  American infantrymen were then commonly called “doughboys.”  A more standard spelling is donut. On this day, many bakeries and coffee shops in the United States offer doughnut deals to their customers. [Read more]

Kelly Not Guilty? Lopez Party; Beyonce Throws Shade?

R&B Singer R. Kelly is pleading not guilty to eleven additional counts of sexual assault and sexual abuse.  In a Chicago courtroom yesterday, R. Kelly entered the plea through his attorney and was released on the same bond from previous charges against him.  According to his attorney, the new charges are from an existing case involving one of the four alleged victims in the prior charges.  In February, R. Kelly pleaded not guilty to ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse of three minors and one adult over the course of a decade.  He’ll be back in court June 26th. 

Jennifer Lopez is hitting the road today in celebration of her upcoming 50th birthday.  Her highly-anticipated It’s My Party tour kicks off in Los Angeles tonight.  The trek runs through August, with stops in over 20 U.S. cities.  Lopez turns 50 in July. 

Beyonce is going viral for seemingly shading a woman who talked to her husband, Jay-Z, during the NBA Finals.  The couple was sitting courtside at Game Three in Oakland Wednesday night when a woman leaned over Beyonce while speaking with Jay-Z.  It was Nicole Curran, the wife of the owner of the Golden State Warriors.  Beyonce looked unimpressed, and seemingly nudged Curran out of the way at one point.  Curran told ESPN she disabled her Instagram account because she started receiving death threats over the incident.  [Read more]
