Eight Ringling Bros. acrobats performing a “Hair Hang Act” were hospitalized following a 35-45 foot fall that stunned circus-goers in Providence, R.I.

They had been hanging by their hair from a metal structure designed to look like a “human chandelier” as part of the famed circus' acrobatic display.

Their injuries, and those of several people below, were described as not life-threatening by first responders; the nature of the injuries was uncertain.

Parents in Providence’s Dunkin’ Donuts Center, many at first uncertain whether the fall was part of the act, rushed their children out of the show.

They soon realized a serious accident had indeed occurred. According to the Providence Journal, a circus announcer told the audience that accidents can happen.

He thanked the first responders and announced that the show, which began at about 11 a.m., would not continue as a result of the fall that took place.

The fate of former NFL cheerleader Sarah Jones' federal defamation lawsuit against celebrity gossip website The Dirty remains up in the air, according to reports.

Sarah Jones won the suit and a $338,000 judgment last summer.

The verdict was so unprecedented, however, that it prompted some of the country's largest companies to file briefs asking the appellate court to reverse the decision.

Now, it looks destined to go before the U.S. Supreme Court.

In 2012, high school teacher Jones pleaded guilty to criminal charges and admitted that she had sex with a 17-year-old student she taught at Dixie Heights H.S.

She later became engaged to the student.

Like a lot of websites, TheDirty (dot) com allows commenters to leave posts, some of which could be considered offensive. Or in this case, defamatory.

Jones, for one, said she was offended by two that said she'd had sex with every Bengals player on the team and likely had gonorrhea and chlamydia.

May Day, celebrated on May 1, stems from an ancient spring festival that has taken on a variety of meanings in various cultures in recent centuries.

Today is exactly half a year from November 1, which like May Day was thought to carry celestial significance among pagans in the Northern Hemisphere.

The consensus among is historians is that the origins of May Day date back to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night.

We have no idea what that means, so you know it was a long ass time ago.

Whatever its origins, it's the start of a new month, the advent of (hopefully) warmer weather and a great excuse to celebrate all things May across the land.

In honor of May Day, here's a look at nine celebrities named May:

Renowned fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were given a reduced, suspended sentence of 18 months in jail on Wednesday.

The duo's conviction on charges of hiding hundreds of millions of euros from Italian tax authorities via Luxembourg holding company Gado was upheld.

The sentence was reduced from 20 months because the statute of limitations applied to certain facts in the case. Still, it took the twosome off guard.

A lawyer for Dolce and Gabbana, who have always denied any wrongdoing, said they would appeal the decision: "I am speechless. We are all shocked.

A Milan prosecutor had asked the court in March to clear the pair, who closed the Milan shops where they sell clothes inspired by Dolce's native Sicily.

The previous decision, by a lower court, handed the duo suspended jail sentences of 20 months each and imposed a fine of up to 10 million euros.

A Texas teacher, Heather Lynn Miller, is facing felony charges after she was allegedly caught in a portable classroom trailer with an underage student.

Miller was arrested Sunday night after a campus security guard at Katy Junior H.S. found the 46-year-old with a 14-year-old male during a routine patrol.

Miller was allegedly "engaging in an inappropriate relationship" with the student, according to a statement released by the Katy Independent School District.

KPRC reports that Miller answered the door to the temporary classroom, telling the guard "everything was fine." Suspicious, the guard looked past her.

What he saw was a 14-year-old student getting dressed.

Police aren't discussing details of the case; Miller, who taught social studies, was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

District officials said in a statement regarding the case:

Clayton Lockett - a death row inmate in Oklahoma - died Tuesday of a heart attack after officials halted his execution due a new drug mixture that left him writhing in the gurney.

Sources confirm that Lockett went unconscious after about 10 minutes and then started clenching his teeth and breathing heavily three minutes after that.

The blinds were then lowered to prevent the witnesses from seeing anything further, at which point the state's top prison official called a stop to the proceedings.

"It was a horrible thing to witness. This was totally botched," said Lockett's attorney, David Autry.

It doesn't get much worse than blowing a chance at $1 million due to a mispronunciation on Wheel of Fortune.

But this comes awfully close.

After picking up a piece that brought her one step closer to winning a car, a young woman on America's favorite game show named Rachel was faced with what appeared to be a VERY easy puzzle this week.

She was only missing two letters... but a love of boozing on vacation apparently led to this contestant's downfall. See what we mean now:

Ouch! So very close.

Adam Silver just announced in a NYC press conference that he has banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from all NBA-related activities for life.

He's also fined the 80-year old real estate mogul $2.5 million, an amount that will be donated to various charities.

Silver told reporters that a forensic review of the V. Stiviano audio recording of Sterling being all kinds of racist discovered no evidence it was altered in any way.

The Commissioner added that he spoke with Sterling in the past couple days and referred to his views as "offensive and harmful."

Sterling also admitted to his voice being on the tape.

There's a new selfie trend on the block - and this one's on top of the world. Literally.

Flight attendants and crew members around the globe have taken to sharing their mile high selfies with followers on social media. All is well, however, as the mile high part of this club isn't the mile high club to which Chrissy Teigen belongs.

(Thank our lucky stars!)

Mile High Selfie
Alexandra showed off her Air Canada uniform in her mile high selfie on Instagram.

Hey, flight attendants are Instagram-loving people, too, okay!?! 

Some veterans in the industry think the trend is imprudent and bound to get the younger generation of flight attendants in trouble thanks to many airlines' strict guidelines over images shared in and around their airplanes.
