Could the late “Painter of Light” Thomas Kinkade’s mansion be haunted? Is there danger lurking behind those glowing, candlelit cottage windows?
The Mercury News reports some strange activity at his mansion in the San Jose suburb of Monte Sereno, like cars being vandalized, doors being tampered with and a break-in in the attic that left ghostly footprints in the dust.
Has Kinkade returned from the grave to try and find those last hidden bottles of hootch he stashed, or could it be his ex-wife and children rifling through the joint, as his girlfriend Amy Pinto-Walsh alleges? She has been staying at the home and is trying to lay claim to half of the alcoholic artist’s fortune, citing a pair of barely legible handwritten notes of his that supposedly bequeath her the house plus $10 million. She’s staying put, despite being ordered to pay $11,000 a month in rent.
A security guard is also on hand 24-7 to make sure she doesn’t take any Kinkade masterpieces to the pawn shop.
This is gonna make one hell of a Hallmark Channel Christmas special.
This just in: Sarah Palin has reportedly read a book.
Sources can confirm that the ex-governor of Alaska has completed Errol Morris’ “A Wilderness of Error,” about convicted family-murderer Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald.
Currently serving three life terms for the 1970 deaths of his wife and children, MacDonald was made famous in the Joe McGinniss book “Fatal Vision.” Morris’ book offers a new approach to the case and suggests that MacDonald could be innocent.
Enter Palin, who jumped at the chance to review it for Breitbart.com, probably because she despises McGinniss, who wrote an unflattering book about her last year.
“[He] is a stone cold manipulative liar,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “He has viciously and cynically lied about my family and me, and I’ve no doubt that he has lied about others in his other books.”
Ergo, Morris’ new version has received a rave review from her. (We’d ask her what her other favorite books are, but we don’t want to trap her in a “gotcha” question.)
