October 1, 2017 7:49 PM Alarming showing underlines why Klopp should have done more business in summer

Nobody could complain about lady luck this time. Forget clinging to the performance as proof that the tide will soon turn.

A figure who was as influential as he was polarizing, Hugh Hefner built an empire that was ultimately based on ideas.

Hugh Hefner loved his things: his silk bathrobes, his palatial mansion, his vintage cars.

September 29, 2017 8:51 PM Hugh Hefner's Final Resting Place? The Plot He Bought Next To Marilyn Monroe

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner often spoke of how he would one day be entombed in the plot he'd bought next to Marilyn Monroe. Her crypt is at the Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles.
