Kristin Cavallari, who’s promised to release her first book within the next 313 days, hit a career milestone last night. Her accomplishment is as follows: The LAUREL bootie is now in 25 @nordstrom stores!!!

I know this because Kristin told me on Instagram.

“The LAUREL bootie is now in 25 @nordstrom stores!!!” she wrote in the caption, referring to the shoes she’s balancing on in the photo, which are part of the Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry line. “Thank YOU to the fans who made my big dream over 10 years ago become a reality!”

Now we know: Kristin had a highly specific fever dream 10 years ago titled, “the LAUREL bootie is now in 25 @nordstrom stores!!!”

She reiterated in the caption, “I am living a dream [confetti emoji]”

Goal setting is an important part of adult human development.

Cops Filmed Beating Gay Staten Island Man, Who Alleges Homophobia

Cops Filmed Beating Gay Staten Island Man, Who Alleges Homophobia

A gay man in Staten Island named Louis Falcone says police called him a “faggot” while beating him outside his home on June 19. The incident was taped from across the street, though no homophobic epithets are audible. The Daily News posted footage and an interview with Falcone:

“While I was on the ground, I had mud and blood in my mouth,” Falcone told the Daily News. “One (of the cops) said, ‘Don’t let it get on you, he probably has AIDS, the faggot.’”

Falcone, the Daily News story points out, weighs 150 lbs.

According to a source, Falcone’s mother called the police early during the morning of June 19 after he had been fighting with his brother and “tearing up the house.” By the time the police arrived, Falcone’s brother had departed. Falcone was reportedly uncooperative and spit in one of the police officer’s faces.

Falcone also alleges the police also threatened to kill his dog. He plans to sue in federal court for civil rights violations, according to his lawyer.
