Britain's Prince Andrew has stepped back from his Royal duties after a series of damaging revelations about his close friendship with American pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew was accused of being a part of Epstein's child sex ring.

Epstein, who was charged with multiple counts of child molestation and human trafficking, hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell in August.

Prince Andrew's problems began when a photo leaked that showed the Duke of York embracing one of Epstein's young victims. The image was reportedly taken at Epstein's infamous NY townhouse at 9 East 71st Street years ago.

Initially Prince Andrew denied knowing Epstein. Then, after the photo leaked, he claimed the image was Photoshopped and that wasn't his hand around the young lady's waist. But photo experts analyzed the image right down to the pixels - and determined the photo was not Photoshopped.

In a recent interview with the BBC about his friendship with Epstein, Prince Andrew claimed amnesia, saying he didn't recall taking a photo with the young girl.

In the interview, which aired Saturday, Andrew denied having sex with Virginia Giuffre, the girl in the photo.

Giuffre claims she had sex with Andrew three times in 2001 at Epstein's properties.

Prince Andrew announced he was stepping back from public duties for the "foreseeable future."

"It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family's work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support," Andrew said in a statement. "Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission."

The freshman Democratic Congresswoman made headlines after leaked photos showed her smoking a bong while naked.

London's Daily Mail published the photos along with scandalous details that Hill, who is married, carried on sexual affairs with male and female Capitol Hill interns.

The U.S. news media immediately defended Hill, calling the photos "revenge porn" and saying she participated in "consensual, non-monogamous" affairs. The media said society should remove the stigma from "consensual non-monogamous" relationships.

Hill, who is seeking a divorce, blamed her husband for leaking the photos and the salacious details about her private life, Newsweek.com reports.

"During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone in my campaign," she said in a statement.

"Even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgement. For that, I apologize."

Capitol Hill police launched a probe into the leaked nude photos after the 32-year-old Congresswoman asked them to investigate if any laws were broken.

Hill's lawyers sent cease-and-desist letters to the Daily Mail and other blogs that published the photos.

The letter informed the Daily Mail that "The California Penal Code accordingly makes it a criminal offense to 'intentionally distribute the image of the intimate body part or parts of another identifiable person.'"

The scandalous photos are still live on the Daily Mail's website.

A scandalous video featuring a man who resembles Pastor David Wilson of Texarkana, Texas, and a woman who is not his wife has gone viral on social media.

The video shows the man performing a sex act on a woman. But a family member says the video isn't real and someone is trying to ruin the minister's good name.

The elder Wilson is the senior pastor of Bibleway Ministries and World Out Reach Inc. in Texas.

"I'm a minister of 32 years, have pastored for 25. I'm a motivator and Love to see lives transformed to the Glory of God," Wilson says on his website.

But his critics say Wilson is only motivated to chase skirts in the church.

Wilson's daughter says the man in the video is not her father. She said the scandalous video is a case of mistaken identity.

"Sometimes we unknowingly share our names with complete strangers. But that does NOT mean we share the same Mission or Faith! I am the daughter of the Great Doctor David E. Wilson. This other David E. Wilson is a man who just so happens to share same name as him."

Correction: according to a loyal reader, the daughter was referring to her father - another pastor with the same name from Dallas TX - after trolls swarmed her dad's Facebook page because the pastor from Texarkana TX (who is in the video) deleted his FB page.

The sex scandal unfolded when someone uploaded the X-rated video to Twitter. The video shows a man of the cloth perfuming cunnilingus on a woman.

The video was captioned: "Pastor Wilson out here doing the lords work."

"That's not the first lady," commented one church parishioner.

Another Twitter user commented: "The Pastor out here speaking in tongues."

And a third Twitter user wrote: "Dam what church is this how do I become a member ASAP pastor knows what he's doing tho amen."

Sandrarose.com is a family-oriented blog, and as such, I will not post the vulgar video. But it isn't difficult to find if you know where to look.
