Sylvia Browne died Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the age of 77. Browne was a prominent figure for those who believed they could see into the future, and Browne firmly believed that her special powers came directly from God, though she was heavily criticized for many of her predictions and claim that she was given information from God and angels.
Browne's biography states that she firmly believed in God but never forced her clients, or anyone she spoke to during a session, into believing as she did. One of her key phrases was, "It does not matter if you believe in God because God believes in you."
She often appeared on Montel Williams' talk show, offering advice and guidance about the future to his guests. However, according to one website, the Skeptical Inquirer, out of 115 predictions she made on the show, she was never accurate. more >>
Former President George W. Bush said that he relied upon his faith when making big decisions during his years in the White House, and shared why he doesn't criticize President Barack Obama at an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday.

The talk show host complimented Bush that he looks more relaxed now than while he was serving at the White House. The former Texas governor admitted that he doesn't miss the spotlight, and that eight years is "plenty" to spend as president. more >>
Former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, aka Terry Bollea, seemingly had it all, but in 2007 things began to change for the man responsible for the phenomenon known as "Hulkamania." He found himself thinking that suicide was the answer to his problems, but then heard a voice that brought him back to himself and set him on a new path that includes God.
Hogan found fame working for the World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment) as the "all-American" hero. He enjoyed a successful career and after finally leaving the WWE, appeared on the reality show "Hogan Knows Best," which featured his everyday life and family, including daughter Brooke and son Nick.
While the show enjoyed some success, it didn't last long and was canceled in 2007. That was the same year that Nick was in a serious car accident, severely injuring his passenger and best friend and sending Nick to eight months in jail. more >>

A new skit from NBC's "Saturday Night Live" poked fun at President Barack Obama's rocky second term by advertising an extra-strength version of the anti-depressant Paxil, "the only anti-depressant strong enough for an embattled second term."
The mock advertisement, featuring "SNL" cast member Jay Pharaoh as Obama, points to several scandals that have plagued the president's second term, including the aftermath of the Benghazi attack, malfunctions with the Obamacare website, and the NSA scandal, among other issues.
"You can get back on your feet and start running the country again. With Paxil you'll feel like you're giving a speech at a college campus in 2008, or getting Bin Laden all over again," the fake commercial promises. more >>
In a scorching critique of a speech in which Sarah Palin compared the national debt to slavery, MSNBC host Martin Bashir suggested that perhaps someone should poop and urinate in the mouth of the former governor of Alaska and GOP vice presidential nominee.
Mocking her as "America's resident dunce" for using the analogy, Bashir played a clip of the remarks Palin made two Saturdays ago while promoting her book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, at the annual Iowa Faith and Freedom Conference.
"Our free stuff today is being paid for today by taking money from our children and borrowing money from China," she explained. more >>
