HEADING NORTH

A "migrant caravan" -- made up of nearly 7,000 people from three Central American countries --  is moving northward and headed to the southern border of the United States. In response, President Trump says the U.S is ready to cut off or significantly slash financial aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. He says those nations failed to stop people from leaving their countries and attempting to enter the U.S. illegally. The massive group is marching through Mexico and a second caravan of about 1,000 people is also now on its way from Honduras. 

 

WHIPPING WILLA

Another Category 5 hurricane is on the way -- this time targeting Mexico's Pacific coast -- and her name is Willa. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says she's rapidly intensifying -- with maximum sustained winds of 160mph. The storm is expected to make landfall on Tuesday somewhere in the vicinity of Puerto Vallarta. This monster storm comes less than two weeks since Hurricane Michael battered the Florida Panhandle.

NOW TIP IT... TIP IT GOOD

We've all been there: you buy a little something to eat at a deli or coffee shop, and the cashier spins an iPad toward you with a prompt to tip -- sometimes up to 30%! It turns out a lot of customers are too embarrassed to look cheap by hitting '10%' or the 'no tip' option, even if all they bought was a muffin or a cup of coffee. What does etiquette dictate? We decided to "tip you off" with the answer.

DUKE OF GIRL

Once a ladies man... well, you know the rest. Prince Harry revealed over the weekend that he hopes wife Meghan Markle -- who is about thirteen weeks pregnant -- gives birth to a girl. This as the Duke of Sussex, as he's formally known, reportedly encouraged his wife to scale back her public schedule and rest while she's experiencing that all-too-familiar first-trimester fatigue. Way to go, Harry! You should give out love advice. Fellow Englishman Billy Idol doesn't seem to be headed for a white wedding any time soon after being sued by a woman whom he allegedly invited to his concert and an "after party" in his room.

 

QUITTY WOMAN

Julia Roberts says when it comes to romantic comedies, she's out. The now fifty-year-old former queen of rom-coms -- including "The Runaway Bride," "My Best Friend's Wedding," and "Notting Hill" -- says the lighthearted genre requires an actress to sell a certain lack of wisdom, explaining, "I love them, I love to be in them, I love to watch them... But sometimes, they just don't work at a certain point of life experience." Roberts is now sinking her signature pearly white teeth into other genres, which you can check out below.
