Dog the Bounty Hunter

Duane 'Dog' ChapmanI wasn’t going to say anything about Dog “The Bounty Hunter” but after seeing him on Larry King last night I’m like this guy really thinks we’re supposed to feel sorry for him. You are responsible for what you say and do.  True feelings about things have a way of coming to the surface. I’m not saying I think he’s a racist, because I don’t know him personally; but I can say he makes racist statements because of words that have come out of his mouth. If he hadn’t said it, I nor millions of others wouldn’t be able to come to that conclusion.

On Larry King he pled with the audience to contact the show to help get him back on air. I’m like come on now, let’s get real. I hate he has a son that would sale him out for a few bucks, but he only has himself to blame. He shouldn’t have said it. He’s sorry alright. He’s sorry he got caught. He’s sorry his son taped it and sold it to the highest bidder.

There’s a special connection that I thought I had between me and black America,” Chapman told Fox’s Hannity & Colmes. “And I used to say, ‘I’m black, too.’

art.brown.ap.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (AP) – Bobby Brown spent a night in the hospital after suffering a mild heart attack, his attorney said Wednesday. To read more…

However, I received this from Eurweb.com:

BOBBY BROWN SAYS ‘WHAT HEART ATTACK?’ Singer calls EUR’s Lee Bailey to say the widespread reports are untrue. *A healthy-sounding Bobby Brown spoke exclusively with EUR’s Lee Bailey Wednesday to deny published reports that he was taken to two Los Angeles hospitals Tuesday night with severe chest pains that were later diagnosed as a mild heart attack. “I heard that I had a heart attack earlier, but I didn’t,” Brown told Bailey during a phone call Wednesday afternoon.

Britney Lost Temporary Custody – Is that Fair?

It seems all of the partying and allegedly driving under the influence has caught up with pop star Britney Spears.  Her ex, K-Fed, will have custody of their kids. Do you think this new ruling will push Britney over the edge? Somebody needed to intervene because things seem to have gotten out of control. My only concern is for the kids. Hopefully, she can get herself together so she can be the mother she needs to be for those babies.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon issued an order today, stating that Kevin Federline, the boys’ father, “is to retain physical custody of the minor children on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 12:00 PM until further order of the court.” To read more…

Glad it was Rockers not Rappers

For once, rappers weren’t in the news for fighting. 50 Cent and Kanye West were on their best behavior during the MTV VMA Awards Sunday night; but I can’t say the same for rockers Tommy Lee and Kid Rock.

What prompted the fight between the two rockers? Were they fighting over their ex Pamela Anderson?

Well Tommy Lee tells his side of the story:

Yeah!! …..here I am minding my own biz having a great time with my friend Criss Angel (magician) and watching the Mtv awards in the front row saying hello to all my friends……Pamela comes and sits on my lap who I love and adore….and also say hello to my friend Travis Barker and his wife!…..and i get a text from another friend P. Diddy and he says come sit with me….. Read more…

To repeat…I’m just glad it was rockers acting a fool and not rappers. To quote Rodney King, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Larry Birkhead Questions Source in New Anna Nicole Smith Book

Anna Nicole Smith is dead but her name or should I say drama surrounding her name lives on. art.birkhead.cnn.jpg

Larry Birkhead questions the reliability of sources used in a new book about Anna Nicole Smith.

Among the allegations in Cosby’s “Blond Ambition: The Untold Story Behind Anna Nicole Smith’s Death,” are that Birkhead and Howard K. Stern, Smith’s attorney and companion, had an affair — and that an intimate moment between the two was caught on videotape.

“That’s totally false and it’s defamatory,” Birkhead said. “I’ve heard the sources from that, and those sources are people that don’t — that haven’t been in Anna’s life and haven’t even met me.” Read more…

Bronco’s Henry Seems to be very Fertile

The football season is upon us. I will admit I’m not the greatest football fan, but I love watching fine men run around so I’ve learned to enjoy the sport.  As I was surfing the net, I came across this article about Denver’s running back Travis Henry.

If I could ask him one question, it would be, “Have you ever heard of a condom?”  I know with your millions you should be able to afford at least a pack or two. Paradise flavored condoms

Why do I ask, because according to this article I read, he has 9…not one…two or three but nine children by 9 different women.  Read the article here.

Ladies, if he even thinks about pulling out his pee wee, run like a track star because that man is potent. Now if you do decide to give him some play, you might want to have a doctor check him out too; because I hate to say this but it’s obvious he’s not practicing safe sex.

Can someone please slip Henry some condoms?

Usher & Tameka Offical Wedding Planned

Say What? I thought Usher and the former Ms Tameka Foster wedded in the attorney’s office. Well according to UsWeekly,   they are planning an official wedding ceremony this weekend in Atlanta.

The rumored event will be more in line with the couple’s original plans for a ceremony and celeb-filled celebration. That gathering at the Hamptons home of record exec L.A. Reid was canceled at the last minute on July 28 in favor of a small private gathering days later on August 3. Guests are rumored to include Jermaine Dupri, Janet Jackson, Ashanti, and Diddy.

We hear that Raymond, 28, and Foster, 36, are holding the party in Atlanta so friends and family will be able to attend easily. SOURCE: US Weekly

Okay, y’all is it really ncecessary to attempt a 3rd wedding. The 1st wedding didn’t happen, the 2nd wedding happened in an attorney’s office…enough already.

Why not have a Labor Day weekend party/celebration party? Why another wedding?  I’m all for love and all, but come on now. Besides, some of y’all know how I feel about the whole thing (Usher Do NOT Wed), but hey if it works for them, who am I to say anything.

P.S. – For someone who supposedly had a pregnancy scare (one of the rumors why the 1st wedding didn’t take place), Ms. Tameka is always out at some event. The average pregnant woman would be relaxing at home…maybe not on complete bed rest; but she wouldn’t be out galloping at all these events either.

Whitney and Bobby Back in The Spotlight

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown It seems Bobby isn’t too happy about the child custody arrangement with Whitney.  According to legal papers Bobby filed, Whitney is supposedly blocking him from seeing their daughter Bobbi Kristina.

These reports counteract the reports on the gossip circuit about them two getting back together. Apparently those pics were taken when Bobby was trying to convince Whitney to let him see their daughter.

Whitney isn’t no different than other women. A woman scorned will sometimes make the mistake and try to keep the child away from their daddy. Hopefully, the issue will be resolved soon. Regardless of what we may think about the daddy, a child needs his or her father in their lives.

Venus goes to the next round in the U.S. Opens and Eurweb.com reports, she also launched her new clothing line.

*Shortly before beginning play this week in the U.S. Open, Venus Williams attended the official launch of her fashion line EleVen at retailer Steve & Barry’s in New York.     

      The store partnered with Williams in the creation of the 120-piece collection, the largest ever launched by a female athlete.      

      The line includes nine styles of athletic footwear in a variety of color ways, track suits, fleece outerwear, street active apparel, graphic t-shirts, puffy down jackets with removable sleeves, denim jackets and jeans, velour items, tote and gym bags, jewelry, sports socks and bras.      

     I’m rooting for Venus on and off the court.

DMX House Raided – Dogs, Drugs & Weapons Found

DMX a/k/a Earl Simmons is in trouble or is he? Over the weekend, the police raided his home in Arizona and removed some dogs and some reports mention drugs and weapons were also found during this raid.

According to DMX’s attorney Murray Richman, it was all about the blazing Arizona heat. Richman claims that someone reported the dogs were at risk because of the extreme temperatures, telling TMZ “Earl has a caretaker, who obviously wasn’t taking care. Earl loves those dogs.” Richman added that DMX isn’t even in Az and hasn’t been there for several months because he’s off working on a project. Source: TMZ.com

Will DMX be the only rapper targeted for raids due to the Michael Vicks case or will this become more common? Cruelty to animals is a no-no; but folks shouldn’t assume that people with more than 1 pet mistreats them.

I care about dogs and if you know me, you know I’ve had one since “peter was a pup” 🙂 but I care more about kids.

Stopping child abuse and locating our missing kids is what people need to be concerned with.


Kendrick Jackson, missing since April 2006

Thirty-three percent of the 700,000 children who go missing are Black, but the news rarely reports them.

Army Wives Season Finale airs on Lifetime

Army Wives on Lifetime has become one of my favorite shows to watch. It’s hard to pinpoint why. Maybe because it reminds me of the time of when my fiance (now ex-fiance) was in the service and I was left behind when he fought in the Gulf War. Anyway, if you haven’t seen the show; definately check it out in re-runs. If you do watch it, chime in and let’s discuss.

http://email.lifetimetelevision.com:8080/trk/click?ref=zpn0hoq8t_1-5cax311fex1173513&
Lifetime

Update: The summer’s hottest new series ended in almost a bang. Frank, Trevor and Chase are deployed. I like the way the show portrayed the emotional good-byes. It was realistic.  Some of the surprises was the person you thought would be pregnant wasn’t but someone you least expected to be pregnant was. It was appropriate that the show ended with them all at the bar. The surpise was when a disgruntle army husband walks in wearing a bomb. (I sort of figured he would be the culprit)…anyway, just when he gets ready to hit the trigger, the show goes off and Lifetime airs a clip of Halle Berry’s upcoming new movie. Now we have to wait until next season to see if he blows up the place, will anyone get hurt or will he come to his senses.

Nicole Richie In and Out of Jail in Record Time

Nicole Richie was sentenced to serve four days in jail for DUI, but faster than you can blink; Nicole was back on the streets. She spent 82 minutes or 1 hour and 22 minutes or 4, 920 seconds behind bars.    Facing the musicIf I lived in California, I would be upset. That’s a waste of taxpayers money. She might as well have gotten probation from the beginning.

Reality TV star Nicole Richie was released by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department after serving just 82 minutes of her four-day sentence for driving under the influence of drugs.

Richie reported to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood at 3:15 p.m. After being processed, sheriff’s officials released her at 4:37 p.m. Source: LA Times

I could spend 82 minutes in rush hour traffic trying to get from point A to point B. I could spend 82 minutes shopping at Wal-mart. I could spend 82 minutes surfing the net and not getting any work done. I wish I could get my a hair done in 82 minutes.

Was justice served?
