TODAY COULD BE THE DAY
Have you bought your lottery ticket? Tonight, one or more might become an instant millionaire. The 500 million jackpot is a record for Powerball…what would you do with the winnings? We’ve all seen and heard the horror lottery stories, from people being broke in less than 5 years and even death.
Play on America and good luck! 🙂
Well not so good, Wendy Williams voiced her opinion about the “scandal” of puppeteer Kevin Clash during her Hot Topics segment. Her thoughts were, since we know the face/voice behind Elmo, the character needs to retire. When thinking of Elmo, scandal is attached to the name. Do you agree? Should Sesame Street retire Elmo?
In my best Wendy voice, THIS IS ONE BIG MESS!
Miami lawyer Jeff Herman has announced that a third man has filed a lawsuit against Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash, accusing him of sexual assault.
Herman refers to the third accuser as John Doe and said he was 16 years old when Clash allegedly sexually assaulted him.
John Doe documented his experiences in an unpublished book he wrote in 2009. A chapter of that book, according to his lawyer, is called “Tickled My Heart” and John Doe called Clash “Mr. Tickler” in it.
Sheldon Stephens, now 23, was the original accuser earlier this month, claiming he had an inappropriate relationship with Clash when he was 16 and Clash was 45. He then recanted his story and said Clash paid him $125,000 to do so.
Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” last week after a second accuser, 24-year-old Cecil Singleton, came forward saying he had an underage sexual relationship with Clash when he was 15. Herman is also Singleton’s lawyer.
Clash was the voice of Elmo for 28 years. His statement, upon resigning, was “Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer. I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately.”
Clash’s lawyer, Michael Berger, said in a statement: “The cases and Mr. Clash’s reputation will be defended vigorously.”
Rumor has it…well it’s not quite a rumor. Jessica Simpson is expecting baby # 2 with fiance Eric Johnson. The couple are proud parents of 8 month old Maxwell Drew Johnson.
With Christmas less than a month away, this is an early present for Simpson…Us Weekly exclusively confirms. Simpson gave birth to baby Max this past May.
A source reveled to Us, “It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again.”
I wonder what Weight Watchers is thinking, Simpson slimmed down the 60 of the 70 lbs she put on with baby # 1.
This will definitely be a Christmas to remember, congrats Jes!
