*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.
*Hey Gladiators, by now you may have heard that Shonda Rhimes‘ hit, “Scandal,” was inspired by the real life story of a Washington “Fixer” named Judy Smith and her “Leader of the free world client.” You might even know that the client was former president, George H. W. Bush.
But did you know that when it was clear that the show was going to be green-lit, and Smith placed a call to give Bush a heads up, about a new show that was going to premiere based on their business relationship; but the creator of the show had decided to throw in a new twist, Mr. Bush wasn’t completely turned off by the idea. In fact, he quite liked it.
*Mrs. Sarah Palin, what do we have here? You’ve decided to run errands in your beloved Anchorage, Alaska without the grace of your usual face, and now you are rushing to your car in an attempt to shield your face from the camera because you want to be on the down-low.
Surely, you will forgive the paps for not recognizing your obvious plea for privacy. Those silly boys are not used to this “low-profile Sarah” and they still have questions about the alleged drunken brawl they hear your family was involved in at your husband Todd Palin’s birthday celebration. How is he, by the way. I ask because the paps are trying to make a big deal out of the fact that you are not wearing your wedding ring. Wouldn’t you know it…They have questions about that too.
But I’ve got you covered on that one, Mrs. Palin. ‘Cause us girls gotta stick together right? So I want to share with those nosy paps all the possible reasons why you may not be wearing your precious ‘Til death do us part’ symbol. Because the media is always jumping to conclusions when, in all fairness, it may be something quite simple. Continue reading →
*Don’t expect Lekeshia Jones to go down without a fight!
The former Natchez, Miss., debutante and fired middle school teacher said she feels like the victim. After all, it was her students who broke in to her cellphone and discovered the nude selfies.
Jones knew something was up when her Myers Middle School students never returned from an errand she’d sent them on. When she finally located them, the surprised students were huddled over their cellphones in her classroom checking out the nude selfies Jones had of herself on the phone they’d broken into.
But they didn’t stop at just gawking, giggling and gossiping about what they had seen, they took it a step further and snapped copies of the images with their phones, before texting them to their friends and classmates and posted them on social media sites.
It was the guilt of one of the culprits a month later that made her come forward in tears to show the teacher the effects of the prank; which had gotten way out of control and had become a sordid school-wide social media sensation. Continue reading →
*A 16-year-old girl who accepted what she thought was a harmless invitation to a party is now talking to the media.
Jada says the friend that invited her to the house party knew the host and that is why she decided to attend.
But it is what the teen alleges took place at the party and the subsequent tweets on social media by a teen boy that she says raped her, that has taken her life and turned it upside down. Continue reading →
