According to CNN, the 2,500-square-foot New York Tudor has a new owner just three months after Michael Davis bought the property in Queens' Jamaica Estates neighborhood for $1.4 million. Last week, an unnamed bidder reportedly shelled out $2.14 million for the home where Trump lived until he was about 4.

Dax Holt, a former producer at TMZ, recorded a conversation he had with his daughter, Skylar, about an awkward exchange he had with her teacher.

“When I got to your school, your teacher said, ‘I heard you have a lot of weed at your house,'” Holt told Skylar. “Are we growing weed at our house?”

“Yeah,” said Skylar.

“A lot of it?” asks Holt, to which Skylar responds, “Yeah, just a little bit, but it’s going to grow a lot.”

“Do you want to show people what you’re talking about?” Holt asks.

Skylar then leads him to the backyard to point out the “weed.”

HGTV's 'Love It or List It' under fire again

recent Reddit post brought reality shows into question, asking internet users, "People who have been on reality TV shows, what's rigged and whats not?"

Some commenters got heated about what goes on behind the scenes on HGTV’s home renovation show "Love It or List It." According to the commenters, the show is not all it’s cracked up to be.

One person said that two family members were part of the show. That commenter said the producers had the family members tape two endings of the show and then decided which one to air.

"My aunt and uncle were on 'Love It Or List It,'" the Reddit user wrote. "(Producers) had them record both endings, and the network chose which one they thought was best. They are still in the house and they love it, but the show says they listed it."

This revelation is a big let-down for fans because most tune in to see the competition between designer Hilary and real estate agent David. But the Reddit discussion challenges whether there's any competition at all.

Another disappointing accusation questions the show's timeline for designs and renovations. While the show makes it seem as if the renovations are completed in a short period of time, Reddit users said renovations can take months as producers attempt to create as many episodes in a time frame as possible.

One Reddit user went into more detail about the headache surrounding the construction on the homes.

"As mentioned, nobody wants to list their house -- they just want a free renovation and to be on TV. However, the show only pays for 50 percent of the work they do on your house, and the producers do what they want for TV and don’t really respect the homeowners’ wishes. (Plus,) they shoot a bunch of episodes in one market at a time, so they use one set of contractors for all of the homes. If they get behind on the work on a given home, they pretend that the work is done so they can wrap on the episode, then they take the crew with them to the next house. You then have to live in an unfinished renovation until the whole set of episodes is finished and the crew can get back to you. This can be months or not at all."

These accusations have landed the hit HGTV show in more hot water. According to Country Living, a couple from an April 2015 episode filed a lawsuit against the show, citing "shoddy work and unfair trade practices."

But not all participants on the show had negative experiences. Julia Sweeten, a real estate blogger, featured a couple whose time on the show was positive.

According to Sweeten, the remodel on one couple's home took about seven weeks, and they only peeked in on the house twice during the renovations. The families have to move out while construction is going on.

"Meeting David and Hilary was a thrill and they have every bit of that back and forth repartee as you would expect having watched the show," the woman, Marci, told Sweeten. "They were both truly quite fun to work with."

A photo posted by Love It or List It (@_loveitorlistit) on Jun 2, 2016 at 12:13pm PDT <script async defer src="//"></script>

Marci said their reactions to the final look of their home were genuine. The couple ultimately decided to sell the home, but that wasn’t until the episode aired.

Billions of cicadas to ascend in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania

Next month, parts of the U.S. can expect to see and hear lots of 17-year-old cicadas, which will rise from the ground to mate.

>> Read more trending stories  

The insects, which have spent the rest of their lives underground, only live above ground for about six weeks. The adults, the ones that make all the noise, only ascend above ground to reproduce.

Males use the harsh sound to look for females so they can mate in that brief time. The sound can reach over 90 decibels in some instances; that's about the same volume as a lawn mower.

The female cicadas will lay eggs in a tree, and after the eggs hatch, the newborn cicadas -- called nymphs -- will bury themselves in the ground, where they'll develop for 17 years. 

According to The Washington Post, female cicadas can lay up to 400 eggs each, across 40 to 50 sites.

During the upcoming mating season, there could be as many as 1.5 million cicadas per acre in some places.

The noise, which is mostly a daytime phenomenon, will probably last until mid- to late June, by which time most of the cicadas will probably die, according to Gaye Williams, a Maryland Department of Agriculture entomologist. Williams said predicting exactly when the emergence will end is tough because it depends on many variables, including temperature, moisture and humidity. 

The good news is that cicadas can’t chew, so they don’t devour plants and trees. Plus, they don’t bite or sting.

But if you live in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and other neighboring states, now might be the time to invest in some ear plugs.
