"Hangover" actor, Zach Galifianakis, is more than just laughs and entertainment. Zach has grown to stardom with his Hangover movies, but he has not forgotten about his friends.

When he discovered that his old friend, Elizabeth 'Mimi' Haist, was homeless, he came to the rescue.  He met Mimi 20 years ago at a laundromat that she worked at.  He used to take his clothes there when he first moved to LA as an aspiring actor.

“Maybe he has his own washer and dryer now,” Mimi said.

Mimi is all smiles because of the comedian

Zach took her off the streets and got her a small apartment which he pays the monthly rent.  He has also taken her to several movie premiers including the recent Hangover III red carpet premier.  During a premier, Zach introduced Mimi to Renee Zellweger, whom furnished Mimi's apartment.  Zach also takes Mimi out to dinner and buys her groceries.

Zach's "wolf pack" is growing :)


And that's what's good,

PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.  NC State vs Duke basketball.  5…4…3…2…1… and the crowd goes completely wild!!!  NC State won a stunning 84-76 upset over Duke's heavily favored basketball squad.  Keeping up with tradition, hundreds of fans stormed the court!

Hundreds stormed the court as the Wolfpack upsets the Blue Devils


One of the N.C. State Wolfpack's biggest fans, Will Privette, was quickly pushed to the center of the court in his wheelchair.   Will was immediately overrun with wild fans and was thrown out of his wheelchair onto the court in the middle of a wild stampede.  This was a very dangerous situation to be in...

Luckily, C.J. Leslie, the star basketball player from the Wolfpack came to the rescue. He cleared the way and lifted Will up!

"He held me for a couple of minutes. I was screaming and yelling," Will said.

C.J. Leslie is a complete hero.  He helped lead the Wolfpack to victory and even more importantly, saved Will Privette's life.

C.J. Leslie, you are the man!  Keep it up and we wish you the best!



Peace & Love,
Jon
