Christopher Roney receives a date for his execution following 18 years on death row. The Iconic Rapper was tried and convicted of murdering a police officer in 1996 during a bank robbery gone wrong. Despite his musical success with Atlanta Records and the release of multiple albums, the rapper lost it all when he shot Officer Lauretha Vaird. He is about to lose even more. It is a sad world when those who have the greatest potential forget they were once human too. It is difficult to say if his death brings closure to Vaird’s family. It may serve as a reminder to others that status and fame will not keep you safe. That is a lesson that a lot of people need to remember.
It’s official – Katy Perry will be the headliner for the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show on February 1st. The game will be held at the huge, super-modern stadium at the University of Phoenix in Arizona.
Rumors have been rampant for weeks that Perry was on the short list to be the main attraction, but the NFL didn’t make the announcement until late Sunday evening.
After several years of showcasing older acts earlier in the last decade, like Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and Tom Petty, in recent years, the last three to be exact, the NFL has been focusing on younger stars like Bruno Mars and Beyonce.
First we had LeGarrette Blount cut by Pittsburgh last week for leaving the game early. This is not even a full year job, and he cannot stay at the duty desk until his shift is over? Then we have Dominic Raiola from the Lions, who admits to not just unsportsmanlike conduct, but to conduct that could have ended the career of another player. What his penalty is to be is not yet known, but it should be cut from the roster. Then we have Marshawn Lynch, who will likely be fired from the team in what can only be described as childish behavior. After being punished for avoiding the media, he sits down and provides short, one-word answers. Aren’t there other players who want to play?
You might know Mark McDaniel better as the child molester dating Mama June. The king of social media ousted McDaniel because they have a rule about not allowing child molesters to use their site. Probably a good rule considering the number of children and teens who access Facebook. It is nice to know that someone in this relationship has a clear brain with which to think. It is clear that Mama June is only thinking about her VW sized vagina, and it is unclear what Mark McDaniels.
Mike Nichols, legendary film director and husband of news journalist Diane Sawyer, died late Wednesday night. He was 83. His death was first reported by ABC News, and no cause of death has been given.
Nichols rose to fame as the director of such iconic films as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Graduate, Catch-22, Silkwood, and The Birdcage.
Boxing, Bitches, & Lawsuits…. what show on this planet would claim such a title? Actually, no show that I’ve ever attended has, but Mike Tyson in his one-man, off Broadway show, entitled “Mike Tyson’s Undisputed Truth”, encompasses those three subjects and much more. Most of us know Mike Tyson as the hard-hitting, controversial heavyweight who was the youngest to win the heavyweight championship of the world at the age of 20 years and four months old. Some of us know that he still holds the record for the quickest knockout in an amateur bout, accomplishing this feat in a mere 8 seconds. But very few of us know what makes the phenomena of Mike Tyson tick, what motivates him, what moves him, what touches his inner soul.

As reported through the AP, the 80-year-old Charles Manson was issued a wedding license to wed 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton. Further, Burton has spent the last nine years working to exonerate Mason. For the moment, put aside the fact that Charles Mason is in prison because of his involvement is one the most horrific mass murders in American history. That’s right, step back from the obvious for a few moments.

Troubled star Amanda Bynes is at the center of yet another disturbing incident that’s adding to the evidence of her continuing mental instability, and this time it was captured on audio tape, making it the first time one of her wild tirades has been recorded.
According to celebrity gossip site TMZ, last week Bynes launched into a venomous rant describing how she’d like to murder her parents, cut her mother’s wrists and burn their house to the ground. She then goes on to lambaste a personal friend with homophobic insults, screaming at him “you’re so gay it hurts my feelings”. The crazy and disturbing outburst was recorded by one of Bynes’ roommates as they traveled in a car.
In another sad attempt to gain public attention, Kim Kardashian exposes her ass for the world to see. Well, most of the world already saw her ass and a whole lot of other things when her sex tape was released. In an odd pairing, the Mazola Oil people have sponsored Kim Kardashian. Does she even cook?
It seems odd that women across America would admire Kim. She does not really do anything. What do educated women think of other women who use sex as a tool to get through life? Sure she is making millions, but what about beautiful women in corporate America who are paid less for doing the same job as their male counterparts? Is Kim Kardashian not another slap in the face. A visual warning that women do not belong in the workplace? Should those women just give up their jobs and start making sex tapes?

Since the landing of NASA’s Mars Rover ‘Opportunity’, many seemingly anomalous things have been documented of the surface of the Red Planet, from small rodent-like creatures, strange lights and far-off Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO), and even objects that appear within range of the rover’s cameras one day, then disappear the next, giving the unsettling feeling that someone, or something, patrols nearby.
The latest anomaly recorded on NASA video appears to show an ancient artifact left over from a civilization that once thrived on Mars, but has since, supposedly, disappeared.
Three weeks before CYBER MONDAY hackers have managed to steal credit and debit card details, email addresses, and more. Is shopping online even safe these days? One has to wonder as more big retailers continue to get hit by hackers. Hackers are crafty, and Home Depot is puzzled that such a brazen attack has not been seen before. Well hello! Technology moves lightning fast, and hackers are frontrunners in producing new technology to get what they want.
It is very disappointing that the entire Amanda Bynes situation has continued to play out for as long as it has. This is not a person who cannot afford help. She has amassed a $5.7 Million fortune. She has been in a treatment facility. She has been to court. She continues to walk the streets of LA living off of gift cards that her parents deliver to a court-appointed lawyer. She has no power. She cannot even hire an attorney to defend her. And still she continues to draw headlines still.
In a story run by the Huffington Post, Republican Scott Rigell explains his case. The issue is that he seems to think that the electronic voting machines are rigged. Whether they are or not, the time to cry foul over rigged ballots was back when Al Gore, the snore was running against whatshisbucketplucket. You might remember the dimpled chads. It was highly thought, back then, that the election was rigged. We certainly did not hear any Republican complaining in 2008 that there might have been a problem with the election. Even the State Department of Elections has stated that they have received complaints from the dear sweet Republican Rigell’s office than from voters in Virginia. Speaking of over using public resources it would be nice if this much energy went into balancing the national budget or providing resources to deal with Ebola. Squeaky Wheel or just a cry baby? You decide.
Major League Baseball welcomed Jason Heyward and Andrelton Simmons into the Golden Glove winners club. The awards for both of these outstanding players continue to be impressive. Last week the dynamic duo took home Fielding Bible Awards too. Whether you are an Atlanta Braves fan or not celebrate the achievement of two players who have kept their noses clean and continue to advance the art of baseball. In a year where major league sports has been stained with spousal abuse, racism, and social crimes like shoplifting, it is nice just to celebrate a pair of guys who got it all right.
Seriously in the land of modern technology songstress Selena Gomez reports possible intruder for the third time. Fed up police tell the spaced out Gomez to just lock your door. The problem starts when Gomez returns home to find her front door unlocked. In a panic, because drama sells, she calls the PD insisting someone is in her mansion. When the police respond they find nobody there. Nothing is missing. No sign of forced entry. Um hello! The fourth time and there will be a fourth time because drama sells, should cost her $1M in fines. How crazy can you be if you cannot remember to lock your door in the LA area? The mega songstress should hire a doorman.
Yesterday at the AAA Texas 500 Keselowski tried to take it three wide coming out of a caution and clipped Jeff Gordon’s 24 car. The result was a spin-out and yet another caution. This is the second week in a row that Keselowski has been involved in some sort of altercation following an NASCAR race. Last week Matt Kenseth tried to clean Keselowski’s clock too. The overly aggressive Miller Lite driver, Brad Keselowski needs to take a chill pill. We all understand that this is a sport and that the stakes are high. There is also driver etiquette and going three wide from white to green is not the way to make friends at NASCAR especially when you are not on the last lap of the race. -15 for Keselowski.
Released into the custody of her parents, Amanda Bynes escapes and has been spotted roaming the streets of Hollywood. Bynes was recently an inpatient in a psych facility, but despite rumors remains under the conseratorship of her parents.
That is a sad situation because Amanda Bynes claimed that her father had molested her. There have been no immediate details about whether those claims are true or not. What is clear is that Amanda hates her parents, and those are the only two people who have stood in the way of her lunatic rampage. Is she dangerous? Probably. She is reported to be delusional. She was in an LA court today to plead her case that the conservatorship be removed. Because she has been deemed medically unfit to care for herself, the poor girl was not able to hire a lawyer.
While Kaci Hickox has remained negative for Ebola, she is not out of the woods. The virus is known to lay dormant and appear up to 21 days after contact with a host. Despite her medical background as a Registered Nurse, Hickox continues to do as she pleases, including going for a bike ride in Maine.
Ask anyone about their favorite actor, and of course they’ll almost certainly be able to relate what their current gig is, who they’re dating, married to or divorced from, any scandals they’ve been involved in recently, and a myriad other personal details. But ask about their fave performer’s academic credentials and the result will likely be a blank look. That’s because people assume, if they think about it at all, that a professional actor’s academic training will have been in the field of, well, acting. Maybe at the NYC High School for the Performing Arts or the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
But the truth is that many famous thespians have degrees in fields that are about as far removed from acting as can be. Here six stars of the silver screen with surprising college degrees.
Celebrities Often Have Backgrounds You’d Never Have Guessed
The fate of aviatrix Amelia Earhart has fascinated investigators and historians since she and her navigator Fred Noonan disappeared without a trace over the Pacific Ocean in 1937, on the last leg of a historic round-the-world flight.
Now new evidence has been found which adds credence to one of the leading theories of what happened to the pair.
The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, or TIGHAR, a group which has been investigating the mystery for years, has reported the discovery on a tiny atoll called Nikumaroro of a square of aluminum sheeting that they say most likely came from Earhart’s Lockheed Electra aircraft.
While no charges have been filed, the daughter of the late Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers has retained powerhouse legal eagles to set the stage for a lawsuit that will be filed next month. The lawsuit is expected to be a medical malpractice case pitting the lawyer against lawyer in what could turn out to be a case worth millions of dollars. Personally, the late Joan Rivers was so consumed with surgery that her estate should be paying the doctors for the opportunity to die in the place she apparently loved the most, the surgical ward at a surgical clinic. Over the years, the poor woman’s face has been twerked more times than Miley Cyrus. The two, Joan and Melissa have always reminded me of two show business orphans, destined to do the more deplorable work to find enough food to eat. I was not a fan. Frankly, the whole case should be laughed out of court. When you have as many surgeries as Joan has had, the risks are there.
