Reasons to Get Car Insurance

needcarinsuranceAmong the many financially challenging tasks to manage aside from owning a home and a vehicle is getting insurance, more notably insurance for your vehicle, as most of the policies that come to form from insurance quotes more often than not really cost a substantial amount of money.

But despite having to spend what seems to be a lot of money to ensure an entire vehicle has a lot of advantages in the long run which makes up for different reasons why vehicle owners really need to invest on having an insurance policy for their vehicle so that in the long run there will be less troubles in case an accident and other car troubles are experienced.

Avoiding Too Much Expense

Although it may seem that selecting one from the numerous Medicine Hat Auto Insurance companies is a huge task especially when considering the amount of money to shell out, it is of utmost importance and necessity to invest because you will end up with an even bigger expense without it.

Imagine having an accident and not being covered by any type of insurance, the amount of expenses that can result from this incident will surely amount to a lot of money than when an insurance policy helps to cover for the damages.

Decrease in Hassles and Wasted Time

When an auto accident occurs, more often than not the hassle of having to deal with the other party involved becomes filled with so much stress and tension, and even more so when insurance is not involved in the equation.

If your vehicle is auto insured, the accident becomes a much easier condition to handle as the insurance company and the personnel who handles your business will be able to help you walk through the entire process and will keep you posted to the details that need to be dealt with about the incident.

Safety and Security on the Road

Holy speedy recovery, Batman! Heidi Klum already dating?

If this item is true – and why wouldn’t it be, coming from the rock-solid journalistic beacon that is The National Enquirer? – then our gal Heidi Klum is a hero to the heartbroken everywhere.

Apparently, just days after filing for divorce from musician husband Seal, the supermodel and reality TV star was seen canoodling (is that word officially over now, BTW?) with her Germany’s Next Top Model co-star and countryman Thomas Hayo over lunch in California.

Because nothing says “I am SO over it” more voluably than Niçoise salad with a side of luuurve, gallons of self-pitying ice cream be damned!

According to The Enquirer, Hayo – apparently a 40-something New York marketing exec and co-judge on Klum’s newest showbiz venture (that’s him pictured with Klum on-set) – was spotted feeding Heidi a nibble from a fork while gazing “deeply into her eyes and caressing her shapely thigh as the pair sat together at lunch.”

Jeesh, if this gossip thing doesn’t work out, the Enquirer scribe who penned this ought to seek employment with Harlequin Romance.

Anyhoo, an “insider” is quoted as saying, “They wanted to keep their romance a secret, but for staffers on the set, it was pretty obvious. They are flirting and act like a couple. He was all over her,’ said the source, ‘and Heidi didn’t seem to mind a bit!’

“After her recent split from Seal, the 38-year-old stunner said she was ready to ‘move forward’ with her life, but co-workers say it looks more like ‘fast forward.’”

Hahahahahaha! Love that. And sad as I am (along with the rest of the planet) that Heidi and Seal couldn’t make their marriage work despite seeming, for all appearances, to be The Most In-Love People in the World™, at least our gal isn’t moping around denying everyone the sunlight of her smile.

If if I were this Hayo fellow, I wouldn’t get my hopes up as this has all the trademarks of a classic rebound. Still, given a chance to score with Heidi Klum seems like a reasonable risk.

Will Michelle Williams ever be over Heath?

Not if Us Weekly has anything to do with it. As Williams moves on with her new beau, Jason Segel, the media keeps digging up ghosts.

As you can see, the new issue of Us Weekly is doing its darndest to connect Michelle Williams’ current romance with Jason Segel to her previous romance with Heath Ledger. The move is  a little gross (can’t the man rest in peace?) and a lot obvious (Us is in the magazine-selling biz, and Michelle on her own doesn’t tend to move much paper).

I haven’t read the actual story, but the gist seems to be that Williams (who is mom to Ledger’s now-six-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose) doesn’t want to repeat the mistakes she made with Heath in her new relationship. Wait, I’m sorry — is Jason Segel also a troubled twenty-something with serious drug and depression issues??

Of course she doesn’t want to go back down that road and of course she will always wonder what could have been with Heath, but I’d say that’s where any connection ends. It’s been five years since Ledger’s death, so obviously Michelle has done a lot of maturing, and so far her relationship with the How I Met Your Mother star seems to be moving along swimmingly.

I guess just the fact that she has a boyfriend, especially one she is willing to date in public, is sort of a big deal. Remember she dated Spike Jonze shortly after Heath died, but later admitted it was too soon. Since then it has been pretty much a man drought — so much so that a lot of people started to assume that she and her BFF Busy Phillips were more than just friends.

(Speaking of Busy, I’m assuming that she is the connection between the new young lovers, since she starred with Segel on the amazing but underappreciated Freaks and Geeks.)

Anyway, despite Us’ claim that the big story here is Michelle doing everything she can to escape the ghost of Heath, I would say the real story is that she recently introduced her new beau to Matilda. This is definitely a big deal for a woman who has stated on umpteen occasions that being Matilda’s mom is the only thing that matters in her life… blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Madonna wants to kiss Britney again

It’s been nine years since Madonna and Britney Spears shared that much-hyped — but in hindsight, fairly tame — lip-lock at the VMAs, but it looks like Madge wants to go back in time. Or, more likely, try and get more attention for her new album.

It all started with an innocent tweet from Britney, who said she loved Madonna’s new album. Her Madgesty only joined Twitter last week — in what was supposed to be a one-day-only treat for fans — but even she couldn’t deny the addiction of 140 characters. Madonna responded to Spears’ tweet in her typical provocative way:

Madonna MDNA Day@MadonnaMDNAday

@britneyspears please come on stage and kiss me again. I miss you!!

Britney replied with a naughty, “Tempting…,” which prompted Madonna to inquire, “Are you gonna make me work for this?” Britney coyly tweeted back, “Why of course!”

Poor Christina Aguilera. Page Six pointed out that the Voice mentor, who was also involved in that three-way smooching stunt, was not part of the Twitter conversation. Madonna and Brit’s banter will undoubtedly have many wondering if the two are planning to hook up (professionally, of course) again soon, but I don’t think so. Madge just wanted to bring attention to her new album — and mission accomplished. She may be new to Twitter, but she’s an old pro when it comes to promoting herself.…

Is Maddox crushing on Jennifer Aniston?

Maddox Jolie-Pitt is 10 years old now, so it’s only natural that the almost-tweenager has started to develop a case of puppy love. Less natural — the fact that (according to the all-knowing National Enquirer) the apple of Mad’s eye is none other than Jennifer Aniston.

Ha! I know, it’s ridiculous, right? And of course it has about a Lohan’s chance in rehab of being true. It’s not that I don’t believe that Maddox could have a crush on a pretty blonde lady who has been positioned by his parents as “forbidden fruit,” but how do the fine people at The Enquirer just happen to stumble upon this scoop? They don’t. It’s a lie. But that doesn’t mean it’s not amazing, so let’s dig in.

According to TNE’s (via Cele|bitchy) sources, the eldest Jolie-Pitt kid first got tingles for An after watching her inMarley & Me (which I would have to agree is one of her hotter movies): “Maddox just loved Jennifer’s rapport with the pup in the movie and got hung up on her nice smile.”

It gets worse (or better), because now he is allegedly bent on decorating his room in posters of Jen and… duh, duh, duuuuuun — Mom is freaking out!! Sidenote: Poor Angelina has done a lot of fake freaking out this week.

Just for a sec, why not approach this story as if it could be true, in which case, I would argue that kids Maddox’s age no longer have crushes on women Jen’s age. We’re not living in the ’70s anymore when Farrah Fawcett was supplying the horny in men from 10 to 100. These days, Maddox has dozens of teen and 20-something beauties to choose from and, still, we are supposed to believe that he is crushing on someone older than his mom?

Personally I can’t wait for next week’s Enquirer headline: “Maddox likes Jen… and she likes him back.” Yeah, gross, but when it happens, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Photo Opp: Meet Drew Barrymore’s little girl

Olive Barrymore Kopelman makes her magazine debut. 

Good on Drew Barrymore. The new mom waited a record nine weeks before accepting buckets of gold to put her baby daughter on the cover of People magazine, beating the previous record holder, Snooki, by nine weeks.

In the cover photo, the actress looks enraptured by little Olive Barrymore Kopelman, the latest addition to the legendary Barrymore acting clan.

And Olive, in the eternally wise words of Dlisted’s Michael K, looks like a baby.

I’m sure she will grow up to be a beautiful, awesome and talented person because Drew is all of these things and she’s the one who will be raising her. Not to mention how she’s been through the ringer and come out brilliantly on the other side. She’ll know how to steer her daughter right amid all the young-person hazards of Hollywood.

It’s also very sweet to hear her transfer her habitual sunny enthusiasm over to motherhood. Observe:

“I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid… Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family … For people who didn’t have the strongest families or traditional families, if you can create that, you can have a second chance. It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle,” she told the magazine.

“One of Barrymore and Kopelman’s favorite things? Singing ‘Good Morning’ from Singin’ in the Rain to get little Olive to smile. Says the actress: ‘It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!’” [via People.]

See? Who else would describe their baby that way? No one, that’s who.

Celebrity baby photo spreads are generally one-note features. I mean, there are only so many ways for a famous person to talk about how magical and amazing and special motherhood is.

But with Drew it feels a little different. Considering the incredibly difficult relationship she had with her own mother, there’s something a bit redemptive and healing about it.

Octomom death threat leaves a mark

I’m not a fan of Nadya Suleman. The single mother of 14 has serious problems (of the financial, emotional and mental variety), but I would never wish any harm on her. Someone else does, though.

Some nut job doesn’t love Octomom’s existence and sent a death threat her way — by throwing a brick through her car window and leaving a lovely note inside. Hey, at least he or she took the time to hand-write it.

TMZ, of course, has photos from the incident. Suleman told the gossip site “she heard several strange noises outside her house early Saturday morning” but didn’t think too much of it and went back to sleep. She woke up around 9 a.m. to her neighbours at her door, where they informed Nadya her car window had been broken.

The most disturbing part was what the vandal left behind — a note that read: “Leave California or you will die.” The most surprising part? Nadya has 14 kids but can still loll in bed until 9 in the morning. That’s just messed up (both the threatening note, and her wake-up time).

People are pissed that Octomom has decided to go on welfare (something she claimed she would never do), eating up thousands of dollars a month in taxpayers’ money. I get it. It’s definitely maddening. But busting up her car isn’t going to change things. Now she has to find a way to come up with the money to fix the window — yet another hurdle she has to get over.

There is another theory floating around: that Octomom did this herself, to drum up some sympathy. Either that, or it’s being filmed for a pilot of the reality show she’s always dreamed of. That would be a win-win. She would no longer need assistance, and be a star in her own mind.

Is Kim K. losing her lustre?

Jennifer Lawrence named AskMen’s Most Desirable Woman of 2013, Kim Kardashian drops 90 (!!!) spots.

Oh. My. Gossip. The end could be near — in a completely fabulous way. I never thought I’d see the day when Kim Kardashian would follow in the washed-up, stiletto-ed footsteps of Paris Hilton but this may be the dawn of a new era. released its Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2013 list and the cream of the the crop is Jennifer Lawrence (duh, because she’s totally awesome) and bottoms (well, almost) is Kardashian. Heh.

Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook (Have you seen it yet? If not, RUN to the theatre.) has changed everything for Jen, rocketing her up 46 spots from 2012. Her movies may have gotten her loads of attention, but what makes her so wanted is because she’s real, sarcastic and self-deprecating but still manages to convey sexiness, strength and beauty all at the same time. Damn right she’s number one. But because of it, Lawrence knocked Sofia Vergara out of the top spot and bumped her down to No. 12. Not surprisingly, Mila Kunis, Kate Upton, Rihanna and Emma Stone round out the top five, followed by Miranda Kerr, Kristen Stewart, modelJessica Gomes, Mad Men’s Jessica Paré, and dancing hurdler Michelle Jenneke.

AskMen’s ranking system is made up of editors’ picks and readers’ votes so perhaps there is hope for better, less famewhorish days. Kardashian almost fell off the list entirely, plummeting from No. 8 to No. 98 (!!!), but what’s most astonishing is that Jennifer Lopez, Megan Fox and Gisele Bundchen failed to make the cut.

I find it odd that Kim beat out J.Lo, Fox and Bundchen, but I suppose they’ve been too busy with concert tours and having babies to pimp themselves out at every opportunity. Looks like Pimp Mama Kris has dropped the ball and isn’t doing her job. There’s always 2014, Kim. (Please,, no.)

Scarlett stays cool in the face of scandal

There’s no denying Scarlett Johansson is sexy — but I bet the last thing she may have wanted is to be used to sell erotic toys and porn.

An adult superstore called VIP — in Calexico, Calif., near the Mexican border — is using a picture of a scantily clad ScarJo on its business cards. TMZ first reported on the story yesterday, and upon asking the store manager about it, he replied, “What does it have to do with the business card? I don’t know who Scarlett Johansson is.” Silly man.

When the manager was properly informed of the actress’ identity, he said, “The owner ordered cards from a company and said we need something with a girl on the card and the company did it.” But rather than go bananas over being some random girl whose pretty pic is helping sell sex toys, lotions and “lubricante,” Johansson is laughing it off, reports E! News.

“I applaud TMZ’s, once again, award-winning investigative journalism for securing the knowledge of my legions of Mexican fans.”

Ha! So I guess Scar isn’t rushing to have her picture be removed from the cards, though I’m sure her publicist might have something to say about that. If this was someone else (ahem, Kim Kardashian), the store owner would have already been sent a letter demanding her image be taken down.

Thankfully, Scarlett is sexy and she knows it. She hasn’t let fame get to her, has kept her sense of humour intact and probably gets a kick out of a shot of her wearing a black bra, white unbuttoned shirt and tiny shorts is selling naughty playthings.
