And Now for the Hilary Duff News
Originally reported by United Press International

Hilary Duff was seen with her estranged husband Mike Comrie over the weekend at Coachella. The duo was all smiles as they strolled around the music festival in shorts and white tops, which is, of course, the fashion statement favored by estranged yet still friendly Hollywood couples.

The outing comes two months after Duff’s publicist announced their separation. “They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time,” read the statement.

Duff and Comrie married in 2010 and have a 23-month-old son named Luca Cruz.

The request for “privacy at this time” will be in effect until their publicist decides it’s time for well, you know, a little more publicity. Look for an update to this story when Luca Cruz turns 24 months and begins his cute but terrible twos.

It Sounded Good at the Time

A Maine man tried to avoid being charged with marijuana possession by stating that the marijuana found in the car he was driving was not his because he had stolen the car. When Douglas Glidden was stopped by police in Livermore Falls because an officer recognized him and knew that his license was suspended, he “told them the marijuana found in the car was not his because he had stolen the car.”

The 25-year-old was charged with felony operating under the influence and felony counts of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and violating condition of release.

The moral to this story: The truth will not always set you free.

Now We Know Why He’s CEO

Bank of America recently swung into the red, posting a first-quarter loss owing to $6 billion in legal charges and a weakening mortgage business.

The $6 billion in legal costs was for a $3.6 billion settlement disclosed last month that covered Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; the other $2.4 billion was for undisclosed mortgage-related matters.

The country’s second largest bank by assets reported a loss of $276 million, or five cents a share, compared to a profit of $1.48 billion reported a year earlier. The company’s revenues fell 2.7 percent to $22.6 billion. This is the fourth time BofA has posted a loss since Chief Executive Officer Brian T. Moynihan took the top job at the start of 2010.

Way to go, Brian! You were clearly meant for the upper echelons.
