*OMG, if you’re anything like me, you’re still pissed that all those carrots you eat do absolutely nothing to help your failing eyesight. And the next time you see some kid cracking his or her knuckles, just let ‘em be, if they do get arthritis (or girls end up having hands that look like a boys’) it probably won’t be because of anything they did – besides, hopefully, live to grow old. But all is not lost, (and I’m sure our parents didn’t intentionally lie to us)because at least six of the old urban legends actually turn out to be legit.
Frank Dileo , the man who managed the King of Pop at the height of his fame in the 1980s, may have passed away in August of 2011, but he left plenty of claims behind in journals and videos. One of these claims include how he says he used his influence to call off a mafia hit on Michael Jackson.
Dileo was a force of a man who was most recognized as a short, stout, cigar chomping dude, who even played the role of a gangster in Martin Scorsese film Goodfellas, about the Mob in New York.
Now, according to yet another book about the late idol, the Mafia planned to carry out a contract killing on Jackson.
DiLeo was 63-years old when he died following complications from heart surgery. Continue reading →
*Most men would give up a day’s pay to be the recipient of such a photo as the one shown above, but although the recipient no doubt appreciated the hot selfie, he had one request of the sender.
“Don’t dress like Beyoncé,”
Manhattan lawyer Lisan Goines took the photo for her lover, CBS journalist Steve Kroft (inset).
Kroft, who is married and admitted to the affair publicly four weeks ago, was the recipient of the sexy lingerie photos during their affair, but he also had stipulations as to how the black beauty dressed whenever she accompanied him in public. He insisted Goines dress low-key — like “Laura Bush” so she wouldn’t attract attention from right-wing zealots. This according to newly revealed texts.Continue reading →
*Hey, transitions are expensive, no doubt. And Bruce Jenner was probably holding out for an acceptable number of zero’s to talk about his journey from being Kris Jenner‘s husband, the Khardashian siblings stepfather and biological dad to some, to becoming a full-blown woman….publicly.
Whoo, the interview where Jenner is reportedly preparing to discuss his “wish to transition from male to female,” with Us Weekly should be a real doozy. Reports claim he has already “taped a major sit-down interview.”
Sidebar: Does anyone else feel that the one they should be talking to is Kris? I mean, how on earth does she seriously deal with her ex-husband becoming a woman?Continue reading →
*I dunno, from the picture above, he’s kind of got that “gangser lean” going. So it may not be so far-fetched that during Christmas Eve service members of the congregation at NewSpring Church in South Carolina took pause to wiggle a finger in their ear in the event their pastor did get so passionate in his sermon that he let the N-word slip.
And so effortlessly.
Pastor Perry Noble was indeed on a roll as he got into telling a story about how he tried to convince his wife – whom he had previously made clear is a white woman in spite of her “black sounding name,” that he wanted to get a dog.
Of course after the video hit social media, the church released a statement that basically said, everybody is hearing things.
*Well just look at who has gone and gotten offended…the NYPD. Add to that, New Yorkers appear to actually give a damn.
Here’s the story.
Apparently, the men in blue went in to a Brooklyn Chipotle, the popular Mexican grill, to get a bite to eat a while back. At that point, one of the employees allegedly did a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture – in remembrance of slain teen Mike Brown.
Immediately offended by the gesture (and probably not trusting their food to be prepared safely after that), the officers, supposedly 8 of them, did an about-face and left the establishment. Since then, they are said to be considering a boycott of the chain. And comments by New Yorkers are on their side!
But Chipotle says the whole thing has been exxaggerated. And the story continues to change as it circulates on the Internet. Gaining speed of a now viral nature. Continue reading →
She quit being the character Izzy on “Grey’s Anatomy” years ago (her final episode aired Jan 21, 2010), and she is just now resurfacing on TV with her new NBC series, ” State of Affairs.”
But the wrath of Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the long-running show, who has made her negative feelings about Heigl public in interviews, is still following the actress.
A lot of times, when stars leave a hit show like a Grey’s Anatomy, without being fired, its because they either got a new series or want to try their hand at film. But Heigl’s absence from TV and film immediately following her resignation from the show (which her colleague, Ellen Pompeosaid was due to “hurt feelings” and money)appeared to be the first sign that Rhimes had been left with a bad taste in her mouth. And it didn’t help when rumors began to surface claiming the actress was a “Diva” and less than pleasant to work with.
But Katherine Heigl’s long absence has apparently given her time to think about some things (and most likely, she is getting guidance from a good publicist on the “how to’s” moving forward) and now she is taking the high road when she is asked about Rhimes.
“It sucks,” she told Mario Lopez. “I’m sorry that she feels that way, and I wish her nothing but greatness, and I have nothing negative to say about Shonda. I’m a big fan of her work. I watch Scandal every week. I’m sorry she’s left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. Maybe I will be able to someday.”
When Heigl made her much-publicized return to network television Monday with State of Affairs., she knew she didn’t come alone. She was aware that she brings a bad reputation about her professional behavior with her, and admits to Extra,
“There’s nothing I can do about this except to sort of prove it wrong.” And the only way for me to prove it wrong is for people to have a work experience with me that doesn’t speak to that at all,” she adds.

*Gag me. But there is a fool born every minute so…
Somehow the words “racial diversity” in the same sentence as “KKK” seems more like an oxymoron than an actual goal; but this is the supposed new direction of the organization that has come to be recognized as the definition of pure hate towards anyone belonging to a minority group such as Blacks, Jews, Homosexuals, and Catholics.
Founded in December 1865 as a resistance group towards anything that represented even a hint of civil rights towards black people, now, according to John Abarr, a member of the Montana Klan, out with the old and in with the new – Klan, that is. He says the organization wants to add more diversity because they aim to build a strong America.
