Hurricane Maria Ruined Melissa Joan Hart’s Family Vacation

Melissa Joan Hart had the best family vacation planned at Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana. And she would have gotten to go on it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling tropical cyclones that feed on the warm waters of the Atlantic.


In a now-deleted Instagram post, the actress and author shared a screengrab of an iPhone notification alerting her to Hurricane Maria’s landfall. But the image was not coupled with an offering of her thoughts, hopes, prayers, or plea for donations. It was over a caption that read:

And just like that, our family vacation is canceled. Such a bummer but we plan to hit the @nickresortpuntacana resort another time this year.

This screams “we got this vacation free because I was going to Instagram the hell out of it as my part of the deal and now I feel obligated to say somethingto me, but what do I know? I’m no witch.


Kevin Hart will not let a stupid extortionist ruin the expensive baby shower he and his pregnant wife Eniko are throwing this weekend. TMZ reports the event is Lion King-themed and will set the couple back around $118,000, which includes—hold on to your Simbas—a $1,500 “chimp in a diaper.”


I am personally thrilled by the fact that Hart is throwing such an extravagant party in the face of someone seeking to extort an eight-figure sum out of him. It sort of reminds me of a rich extortion victim version of Jennifer Love Hewitt screaming “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, HUH” at the wind in I Know What You Did Last Summer.

After all, she taunted the killer and survived.

I’m not sure why the fact that Kevin Hart’s baby shower costing $118,000 is pushing me into “hatred of him” territory, but it is! And the chimp in a diaper is the cherry on the hatred sundae.
