The wildfires that have ravaged the west coast over the past two months have burned millions of acres, claimed over 30 lives, and forced thousands to live in evacuation shelters.

The fires have also caused unimaginable damage to the area’s wildlife.

Critical populations of endangered species and native habitats may take years to recover.

“Some of these places we set aside may be fundamentally impacted by climate change and may not be able to come back,” Amy Windrope, deputy director of Washington’s Department of Fish and Wildlife,” said according to The New York Times. “That’s just a reality.”


Out of all the death and destruction comes a wonderful story out of Jamul, California, outside of San Diego.

Over twenty years ago, Patty Hyslop started the Hyslop Horse Haven to care for abused and neglected horses. Hyslop sufferers from multiple sclerosis and, at one point, was paralyzed, but she believes her love for horses has helped her condition improve.

The sanctuary also provides horseback riding lessons for children.

On September 5, as the Valley Fire raged through the area, forcing Hyslop to evacuate her ranch, leaving the horses behind.

“It was one of the scariest things that we’ve ever been through,” Hyslop told FOX 5.

“When I saw those hundred-foot flames coming at us … I (thought I) was going to come back the next day to dead horses or severely burnt horses. And if they had died, I think I would’ve died with them. My heart would have just broken,” she continued.

After the fire made its way through the area, Hyslop returned to her horse haven fearing the worst. But she was shocked to find that all 20 of her horses survived.

Hyslop belives the animals were saved by “horse angels.”

Unfortunately, the stable didn’t have such luck. The entire sanctuary was reduced to ash and debris. Eight sheds with thousands of dollars worth of medications, tack, and supplies were brunt to the ground. As was Hyslop’s golf cart and trailers for the sanctuary’s volunteers.

“My shed alone, there was probably $10,000 worth of tack and medications feed everything inside and it’s just all gone,” said Hope Gilces, Hyslop’s niece.

The horses have been transferred to temporary facilities while Hyslop and her team work to get the sanctuary back into order. Even though her sanctuary has suffered a massive setback, she still vows to rescue even more horses, including those impacted by the blaze.

A GoFundMe campaign has been established to help rebuild the sanctuary.

“The ranch is going to be in need of feed, medicine, care equipment, and all items needed for riding lessons (saddles, blankets, tack, etc),” the campaign reads. “They will need to rebuild storage units and replace machinery that didn’t survive the fire.”

Let’s hope Hyslop’s horse angels come through again and help her get the funding she needs to continue her important work.

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett Announce Baby’s Gender in Epic, Slightly Insane Reveal

Published

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett’s impending baby sure knows how to make an entrance.


Before he or she is even born.


On Saturday, the vetern Vanderpump Rules star and her fiance, who announced last month they were expecting their first child together, revealed this child’s gender.


In rather unique fashion.


The 30-year old did so by sharing footage on Instagram of a skydiver touching down from above in a pink parachute.


So there we have it, huh?

Lala Kent and Randall Emmett Together


“We are having a baby GIRL!” the Bravo personality wrote as a caption to the video.


Emmett, who is the dad to two daughters of his own (10-year-old London and 6-year-old Rylee) from a previous relationship, shared the same footage.


And sounded equally psyched about the little girl to come.


“WE ARE HAVING A GIRL!!!” he wrote.

In the footage, a skydiver, who was attached to a pink parachute and large pink ribbon, lands on a grass field just as Lala, Randall and their friends cheer and applaud.


“Oh my god!” Lala said, prior to embracing Randall, who then exclaimed, “I told you!”


The podcast host was joined by several of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars and acquaintance for the breaking news, including former star Stassi Schroeder.


Stassi, who is also pregnant and expecting a baby girl herself, posted a video of Lala’s memorable reaction to the gender confirmation.


“We have little baby girls coming! I hope they do better at life than us,” wrote Schroeder along with this clip on her Instagram page.

Give Them Lala


Later in the day, Kent shared a photo on her Instagram Story of a sign that read as follows:


“Give them a girl…with Lala & Randall. I’m in love with you already, and I can’t wait to be your mama.”


Kent and Emmett announced they were expecting earlier this month on an episode of their podcast, Give Them Lala … with Randall.


“I’m, like, shaking right now because I can’t believe that it’s a real-life thing. I cry about everything but today it’s very much happy tears,” said Kent at the time.

“For my 30th birthday I have the best gift given to me, my body also helped out too, I am pregnant,” she then revealed before cheers were heard in the background and Emmett shouted:


“Lala Kent, a soon to be mother!”


A clearly overwhelmed Lala then added:


“I am and I’m so excited. I feel very maternal and motherly.”

Lala Kent Smiles


The reality TV star and her producer boyfriend have been dating since 2017.


They got engaged in September 2018 and battled through numerous break-up rumors before dropping their huge baby bombshell.


The pair were going to get married this past April, but then Covid-19 hit and, well…

Lala Kent at Sundance


“We have decided to move the date of our wedding to July given the unfortunate circumstances of what is going on,” they previously told People Magazine in an exclusive statement.


“We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests, we have made the decision to wait and see how everything progresses.


“Safety will always be our number one priority.”

Aimee Mann – “Avalanche” (Leonard Cohen Cover)

Published

Aimee Mann covered Leonard Cohen’s “Avalanche” for the theme music of HBO’s I’ll Be Gone In The Dark. The show is a documentary about Michelle McNamara, the true-crime author (and Patton Oswalt’s wife) whose posthumous book of the same name detailed her investigation into the Golden State Killer. McNamara died in 2016 of an accidental overdose on prescription meds compounded by an undiagnosed heart condition, and the Golden State Killer was finally caught in 2018 — thanks in part to her research.

“My husband, Michael Penn, and I had been close friends with Patton and Michelle for many years and were very familiar with the ups and downs of her research,” Mann says. “We were completely devastated by her death. I was incredibly moved by Patton’s dedication to getting her book finished and was so happy when he reached out about recording a version of ‘Avalanche’ for the show. Michael produced and recorded it at home, and we were both honored to hear it at the start of every episode.”

We already posted about Mann’s cover of “Avalanache” when I’ll Be Gone In The Dark premiered, but the show only used a brief excerpt of the track in its opening credit sequence. Now, though, Mann has released her full version of the song, and you can listen to it below.

Earlier this week, Demi posted and deleted some scantily clad pics and spoke about her love life in the caption of the post. It’s unclear if Instagram deemed her pics too racy for the platform or if she wasn’t ready to be so open with her fans.

“She’ll love when she’s ready 🧡,” she captioned her post.

The caption makes it seem that she is not currently looking for love and that she is focusing on herself and we think that is the best thing to do. In fact, that’s when love strikes! Her followers were quick to let her know that she has options.

”I’m ready to love,” one impressed fan commented while another said, “A thriving, happy, beautiful queen👑 i love it 💗.”

“My forever crush 💖✨🌸,” a third follower wrote. “in love with your style🔥🌷.”
