Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Star Back In Rehab

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Kim Richards, is back in rehab according to her rep…she is seeking treatment for alcohol abuse and “other problems.” 

A source commented on her repeat stint in rehab saying, “But every time is a new time, and everyone just hopes this sticks and that she gets the help she needs.

Kim’s “bizarre behavior” has it played out on TV, particularly on the game night episode. Costar Brandi Glanville accused Kim of being “wasted out of her f—ing mind”, which Kim denied and one of the season’s biggest fights ensued.

Peep the episode below:

I love to see RICH folk act a fool!

C-Murder’s Conviction For Murder, Sentence Upheld

 A Louisiana appeals court has upheld the murder conviction and life sentence for rapper C-Murder. A three-judge panel from the state’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeal on Wednesday rejected Miller’s argument that he didn’t get a fair trial.

In 2009, a jury convicted Miller of second-degree murder for shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas during a confrontation at a nightclub.

Miller claims the judge who presided over his trial allowed jurors to hear prejudicial and unsubstantiated testimony that he threatened witnesses to the shooting. He also accused prosecutors of systematically eliminating black people from the jury.

I have a question, why would a grown man get into an argument with a child? I’m pretty sure that whatever C-Murder was upset about didn’t warrant a gun to be involved. When will people learn that a gun doesn’t make you powerful, it just makes you a coward with a gun. It baffles me that people are so trigger happy and will shoot someone over the simplest things…especially Black people. We have to do better, be better and actually want better. This is all around sad, one son is dead and another son is imprisoned for life.  

SN: I’m pretty sure his nickname didn’t help his cause!

Are You An Extreme Cheapskate?

Do you dumpster/couch dive? Do you use fabric toilet tissue. If you’re an Extreme Cheapskate, then you probably do.

Merriam-Webster defines a cheapksate as a miserly or stingy person; especially : one who tries to avoid paying a fair share of costs or expenses…why do they have to be miserable? LOL

Last night, TLC premiered its newest reality special, “Extreme Cheapskates,” the most frugal folks in America share their secrets to saving money.

When times get tough, it’s not unusual for people to start cutting back a bit.

But for one penny-pinching man featured on TLC’s upcoming special “Extreme Cheapskates,” reducing his spending a bit isn’t good enough. No, Jeff Yeager does much more than that. He goes on an all-out weekly fiscal fast several times a year and doesn’t spend a cent of his own hard-earned money.

Instead, during his fasts, Jeff spends only the loose change that he finds around town. And when he does use that money, it’s to buy the cheapest things he needs — including food. This leads to some … umm … uncommon dishes at the dinner table.

“I create my menus around what is least expensive,” Jeff explained. “Not only does that save you a lot of money, but you tend to eat healthier. Like organ meats!”

Even Jeff’s wife, Denise, admits that she’s not always a fan of his meals. “Some of the food he eats, I just can’t get myself to … to fathom eating,” she said. SOURCE

Mel Gibson’s Ex -Wife To Get Half Of His Estimated $850 Million In Divorce Settlement

Mel Gibson is now legally single after his divorce was finalized Friday in a Los Angeles courtroom.

His ex-wife, Robyn, of nearly 30 years and the mother of their seven children, is walking away with half his fortune, once estimated to be as high as $850 million (according to the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2006) in what is considered the biggest divorce payout in Hollywood history.

Because the couple didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, Robyn was legally entitled to half of everything he earned during their marriage.

Among Gibson’s estimated assets: more than $600 million grossed by The Passion of the Christ alone; $100-plus million in real estate investments worldwide (he bought an island in Fiji for $15 million in 2005); and $75 million for film and TV projects for which Gibson, 55, executive produced.  As for film residuals, Robyn is entitled to half of every future check Gibson receives for the rest of his life.

Do You Have A Vision?

Habakkuk 2:2-3

And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

 There’s only 4 days left in 2011, what will you leave behind? What will you carry over into the new year? If you haven’t heard of the concept of a vision board or if you’ve never made one, this would be a good time to start.

A vision board is a visual representation of the things that you want to have, be, or do in your life. The purpose of a vision board is to activate the law of attraction to begin to pull things from your external environment that will enable you to realize your dream. Although the “idea” of a vision board has been around for years, it’s popularity took off from the DVD ‘The Secret’ with John Assaraf relating his story with the use of his vision boards to achieve his dreams.

If you need a better sense of what The Secret is or what a vision board can do, watch the videos below.

Do you have better understanding? I hope so! If you are interested in attending a vision board gathering, there are two happenings in Atlanta next month. Click on the links below to get more information. If you don’t want to attend these events, you can always have your own get together and vision away. 🙂

Are You Still Trapped In The Closet?

If your name is Robert Kelly(R. Kelly), then you have a few more things to get off your chest before you can make your coming out official.  The pied piper has 32 more chapters to release in his “Trapped In The Closet” hip-hopera.

According to TMZ, the R&B legend is ready to film 32 more installments of his musical series– he just needs the money. “I got thirty-two more chapters that I’m trying to put out,” he said. “But it costs a lot of money to do so we’re actually looking for investors.”

From 2005 to 2007 R. Kelly released 22 chapters dealing with infidelity, sex and lies…so what else is there to tell? By now, Kells could’ve built 50-11 more closets to be trapped in.

Are you interested?

This is where it all began…memories!

Rihanna Responds To Being Called A N****B****

The Dutch magazine, Jackie, is catching heat for saying this about Rihanna…Ze heb street cred, ze heb een ghetto ass, en ze heb dat gouden keeltje. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is de ultieme niggabitch en etaleert dat graag, en dat betekent bij haar: wat aan is, kan uit.

Translation:  “She has street cred, she has a ghetto ass and she has a golden throat. Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, is the ultimate n***abitch and displays that gladly, and for her that means: what’s on can come off. If that means she’ll be on stage half naked, then so be it.”

Rihanna took to her Twitter page to display her disdain for the egregious comments saying, “I hope u can read english, because your magazine is a poor representation of the evolution of human rights! I find you disrespectful and rather desperate!! You ran out of legit, civilized information to print!” “There are 1000’s of Dutch girls who would love to be recognized for their contributions to your country, you could have given them an article. Instead, u paid to print one degrading an entire race! That’s your contribution to this world! To encourage segregation, to mislead the future leaders to act in the past! You put two words together, with the intent of abasement, that made no sense … ‘N—a Bitch’?!….Well with all respect, on behalf of my race, here are my two words for you … F— YOU!!!”

The magazine took to Facebook to issue an apology for the use of the racial slur, with a note from its editor-in-chief, Eva Hoeke.

“First: thanks for all your responses. We are of course very fed up over this and especially very shocked. However I’m glad that we’re engaging in a dialogue on this page — not everybody does that. Thanks for this. Other than that I can be brief about this: this should have never happened. Period,” Hoeke wrote.

“While the author meant no harm — the title of the article was intended as a joke — it was a bad joke, to say the least. And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief’s, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. The author has been addressed on it, and now I can only ensure that these terms will no longer end up in the magazine,” the statement continued.

“Furthermore I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words. It was stupid, it was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang — you hear it all the time on tv and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts — but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it. We make our magazine with love, energy and enthusiasm, and it can sometimes happen that someone is out of line. And then you can only do one thing: apologize. And hope that others wish to accept it. From the bottom of my heart I say it again: we never intended to offend anyone. And I mean that.” SOURCE

I have a question…with the Black community calling themselves n****s and b****es all of the time, why wouldn’t a foreign person think that it’s alright to say these things? Let’s see you have female rapper Trina calling herself the baddest B****, women referring themselves as a bossb****, ever other word used in the hip-hop culture is the N-word…so what’s the problem? I’m also sure that Rihanna has referred to herself as a b**** too. Just being a devil’s advocate. (WORDS DON’T MEAN ANYTHING UNLESS YOU GIVE THEM MEANING…YOU ARE WHAT YOU ANSWER TO)

Does Discipling Your Child Involve Duct Tape?

Andre Curry, 21, of Chicago is now the subject of a police probe after a shocking photo of his daughter with her hands and feet bound was posted on Facebook last July. But the photo recently showed up on other websites (TheDirty.com and The Smoking Gun), sparking a police investigation.

Curry indicated that he duct taped the child’s mouth, hands and feet because she hit him. “this is wut happens wen my baby hits me back”, he wrote as a caption for the photo.

Je’Vanna Cobbins, a friend of Curry’s, told The Smoking Gun that he was just “playing around,” with the little girl.

She said: “[He was] being playful with his child. People play with their child differently.” <<<She was PLAYING right? I mean, no one with a mustard seed drop of sense would “play” with their child(ren) this way. This HAS to be a misquote.

A police spokesman said: ‘It’s an ongoing investigation.’

Curry has not commented on the issue and has since taken the photo down, but as the image has spread on the internet, angry users have targeted his page. One commenter called Curry a ‘nasty child abuser’. Another said: ‘I hope you fall down the stairs and land on a bunch of bullets. Hate hate hate hate!’
