RKF Jr. reportedly kept list of dozens of mistresses in his cell phone

Environmental lawyer and activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late U.S. Senator, kept a list of 43 suspected mistresses under the letter ‘G’ in his cellphone, a move that Kennedy’s last wife Mary Richardson believed stood for “goomah,” the Italian slang for mistress, the New York Post reported.

Richardson, who committed suicide in May 2012 in the midst of a rough divorce with Kennedy, shared the information with a friend two months before she hanged herself.

The revelation of Kennedy’s shady list could spell trouble for his upcoming marriage to actress Cheryl Hines. Kennedy and Hines are scheduled to wed in the near future.

“Boy if I was her, I think I’d read this Post story first,” Minihane said.

“Doesn’t any woman who marries a Kennedy get what they deserve? You know going in,” Callahan added.

Sgt. Bowe Berghdal expected to return to active-duty service

Bowe Berghdal, the U.S. Army solider who was returned to the United States after being held by the Taliban for five years, is ready to return to active duty.

Six weeks after being returned in a controversial prisoner swap, Berghdahl completed his therapy and counseling appointments at a San Antonio hospital and will begin a new job at Fort Sam Houston, officials said.

“So when he wanders off of this base, where will he be headed?” Dennis asked.

“After all the work that the therapist did, he’s going to meet with his father, he’s going to freak out and stab him with his bayonet,” Callahan added.

Fired radio host Anthony Cumia defends himself on ‘Red Eye’

Newly unemployed shock jock Anthony Cumia, formally of the “Opie and Anthony” show on SiriusXM, appear on Fox News’ “Red Eye” to defend himself in wake of a racist Twitter rant that led to his firing almost two weeks ago.

“It was such a knee-jerk reaction in this day and age,” Cumia said in the interview, adding, “I will never apologize for this. … I didn’t do anything wrong.”

“He should’ve known in this day and age that you can’t do that, but if you’re saying it all day on the air — all day, every day — and you’re thinking the people following you are your fans who are listening, what’s the difference?,” Callahan said.
