A once stray dog climbed from the depths of an Indian dump to make it to Mt. Everest.

The malnourished pup, Rupee, was rescued six months ago by owner Joanne Lefson, who got the dog into mountain-climbing shape by feeding it a diet of boiled eggs and rice.

Rupee, this week, became the first dog to ever reach Everest Base Camp in Nepal, an altitude of 17,598 feet.

Kim Kardashian was cited for speeding on Tuesday, after being chased by at least three cars of paparazzi on a Los Angeles freeway, the Associated Press reported.

Police ticketed the driver of one of the cars and another photographer who pulled over to take pictures of the scene.

Kardashian, a new mom and reality star, has had a reasonably good relationship with the shutterbugs. Her new fiancé Kanye West, however, was recently accused of fighting with a photog and trying to take his camera.

Comic book fans will be blown away by Ben Affleck's batsuit, when the actor dons the cape and cowl in 2015's "Batman vs. Superman," said filmmaker Kevin Smith.

"You have not seen this costume on film before," Smith said on his podcast, revealing that he'd been sent pictures of the costume by the film's director Zack Snyder. "For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending, because every other movie does this Matrix-y black armor thing ... There wasn't a single nipple on this suit."

Seventies disco sensation and Swedish pop icons ABBA are considering a reunion to mark the 40th anniversary of winning the Eurovision Song Contest.
