The Bachelor's Chris Soules Makes His First Red Carpet Appearance Since 2017 Car Accident

Chris Soules has made his first red carpet appearance since he was involved in a fatal 2017 car accident.

On Friday, the former Bachelor star, 38, smiled for photos at KIIS FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2019 concert in Los Angeles while wearing a maroon shirt and gray pants.

At the event, Soules told Entertainment Tonight that his red carpet appearance didn’t mean he was “really returning to the spotlight,” adding that he was there to watch the show with pals, and fellow Bachelor Nation members Ashley Iaconetti, Jared Haibon, Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert.

Soules has largely remained out of the spotlight since April 2017, when his truck rear-ended a tractor driven by 66-year-old Kenny Mosher near his family’s farm in Iowa.

After calling police and administering CPR, Soules got into a different truck and drove himself home once paramedics arrived, which eventually resulted in his arrest and a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with a fatality. Though a felony, the charge was later amended to leaving the scene of an accident causing serious injury, which is an aggravated misdemeanor.

Mosher, a war veteran, died after being taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Soules — who received two years of probation in August — recalled the incident to PEOPLE in September, and said that even two-and-a-half years on, the crash was never far from his mind.

“The trauma of being involved in is something I cannot describe,” he said. “I think about it every day. … My outlook on life has changed forever.”

“I’ll live with forever,” added Soules. “But I will carry on, and as a result of the tragedy, do something bigger and better with my life.”

Abandoned 5-Year-Old Carries Toddler in Extreme Cold After Adult Allegedly Left Them in Home

A 5-year-old child carried a toddler for half a mile in below-zero temperatures after they were allegedly abandoned in a remote Alaska home, state troopers said Friday.

On Dec. 3, Alaska State Troopers were dispatched to the small village of Venetie when after receiving alerts that two children had arrived at a neighbor’s house and were suffering from cold-related injuries, according to a news release from authorities.

The older child had became nervous when the power went out in the home, prompting him to carry the 18-month-old to another while, while dressed only in light clothing and socks, authorities said. At the time, the temperature in Venetie — a village of about 175 people — was 31 degrees below zero.

Troopers arrived via aircraft to the village to check on the situation. It is unclear how long the children were left alone in the home, Fox News reported.

Upon investigation, authorities identified Julie Peter, 37, as the adult who allegedly left the two children home alone, although her relationship to the children remains unknown, according to the release. She was arrested on one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor in the First Degree.

She was booked into the Fairbanks Correctional Center on the charge, and remained jailed as of Friday, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Teen Mom OG Star MacKenzie McKee's Mother to Start Hospice Care After Cancer Spreads

Teen Mom OG Star MacKenzie McKee's Mother to Start Hospice Care After Cancer Spreads

Angie Douthit, Teen Mom OG star MacKenzie McKee‘s mom, will soon be ending treatment and starting hospice care.

Douthit shared the news on Instagram on Friday, explaining that she is going to undergo two final doses of radiation after cancer in her liver and brain has grown.

“Today was a little rough. Scans showed results that were not good,” Douthit wrote in her caption. “The cancer has grown in the liver and in the brain. There is also some hemorrhaging in the brain. I will have two more doses of radiation and that will be the last treatment I will be given.”

Douthit went on to say that she should be sent home from the hospital “in the next few days,” and that she has “decided to have hospice come in when I go home for some extra care.”

“I’m not sure what to say… other than How God told me early in my diagnosis that He would heal me but I would have a long dark journey to take,” she said. “I’m starting to think this is what He meant by long dark journey. So please pray for me that I will be strong and be able to stop vomiting. Also please pray that I will be a mighty warrior for Christ. I love every one of you. I thank you so much for your prayers.”

In a post on Thursday, Douthit had described sudden dizziness and being rushed to the emergency room, where doctors were “concerned about my liver, gall bladder, hip bone, and brain.”

“I don’t want to go into details because I can’t hold it together to get through these details but it is not looking good,” McKee said tearfully, noting that her mom, a former school teacher, was diagnosed with cancer almost exactly two years ago. “I’m hoping she can be here for Christmas.”

Family Thought Their Home Was Robbed — Until Finding Bite Marks Courtesy of ‘Mischievous’ Dog

Family Thought Their Home Was Robbed — Until Finding Bite Marks Courtesy of ‘Mischievous’ Dog

When you’re not home watching them, sometimes dogs can create quite the mess!

After returning home from a shopping trip one day to find their kitchen had been completely trashed, a family living in Warrington, England, thought their home had been burglarized.

“We went shopping and we were out of the house for just shy of two hours,” Dylan Raynor, 21, told Caters News Agency. “As we arrived back my mother looked through the window and we honestly believed we had been burgled.”

Photos from the scene of the crime show entire cupboards and trash cans completely emptied out, with all of the contents splayed out across the kitchen floor.

However, upon closer inspection of the scene, the family realized that their 1-year-old cocker spaniel named Dory was the one to blame.

“It wasn’t until we noticed the nibble marks in the food and the inedible items, that we realized we had been ransacked by Dory,” added Raynor, the dog’s owner.

“She had emptied the contents of every cupboard and also the rubbish bin,” Raynor continued, noting that the incident raised some questions about the pooch.

“After realizing the destruction was caused by the dog and not a human it made me wonder what else she might be capable of,” he shared.

Raynor said Dory is already well-known for her antics.

“Dory is just a full-time nutcase who enjoys causing havoc,” he said. “She attends doggy-day school and used to attend puppy training classes, however, all of these accolades do not reflect her mischievous behavior.”
