Question of the Day

TruTv has dropped the ax on Star Jones’ show after just six months on air. Break out your kleenex because the last episode will air today.
“Due to the rebranding and programming refocus of the network, truTV and Star Jones Reynolds have mutually agreed to cease production of ‘The Star Jones Show,”‘ stated a memo from Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of the cable network.”

That’s what its called now, rebranding? I have got to use that one.

WHAT NEW JOB POSITION SHOULD TRY TO LAND?

Cause Al needs a new pair of Louboutins, please and thanks.

I’m Just Saying . . .

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick exchanged romantic text messages with a top aide, contradicting their denials in court that they had romantic ties, a newspaper reported.

The county prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the legal implications of the report, posted Wednesday on the Detroit Free Press’ Web site. A conviction of lying under oath can bring up to 15 years’ imprisonment.

Kilpatrick and Christine Beatty testified last summer in a police whistle-blower lawsuit and denied any sexual or romantic ties in 2002 and 2003. But the Free Press said it examined about 14,000 text messages on Beatty’s city-issued pager [My people, my people. When will we learn? – – Fresh] from those years and found many examples of such ties. [SOURCE]

This would all make for a lovely Tyler Perry stage play.

Come on people! You knew sooner or later you we’re going to get caught. I’m personally pissed that the text messages weren’t more interesting. No “girl, I’m going to put that pussy in a full nelson tonight” or anything! Check out excerpts under the cut.

Incarcerated rapper Foxy Brown has asked a New York judge for an early release from the Rikers Island correctional facility so that she can travel to Hollywood to receive treatment for her hearing problems.

According to the New York Daily News, Fox attached a handwritten note to a motion filed by her lawyer requesting that sent Judge Melissa Jackson grant the release in time for a January 30 appointment.

“I am terrified of not hearing a fire alarm go off, or being locked in a cell, and someone not being kind enough to let me out, since not everyone understands the severity of my condition,” she explained in the letter. Foxy underwent special surgery in 2006 to treat her sudden and sever hearing loss.

Now, the battery on a hearing device she uses has malfunctioned. Her attorney, Laura Dilimetin, noted in her motion that there may be “one or two places” in New York that can fix the cochlear implant, but the Los Angeles based House Clinic is the only place that can properly repair the device. [source]

I feel for her but should’ve thought about all of this before she jumped bad and had to be place in isolation for 76 days for shoving another inmate. That sounds like a personal problem, Inga.

Marion Jones Gets 6 Months in Prison

Marion Jones Gets 6 Months in Prison

Allow me to play catch up for a moment. Let’s kick off Monday with this dumb ass, shall we?

Even Shakespeare couldn’t help Marion Jones stay out of jail. Her attorney quoted the bard in asking a judge to be merciful, but the former Olympic track gold medalist was sentenced Friday to six months in prison for lying to investigators about using performance-enhancing drugs and about her role in a check-fraud scam.

Federal Judge Kenneth Karas imposed the maximum sentence suggested in Jones’ plea deal, despite entreaties for a probation-only sentence from her and her lawyers.

“I don’t think the criminal conduct can be written off as a momentary lapse of judgment or a one-time mistake,” Karas said.

Upon learning she was going to prison, Jones leaned over the courtroom railing and softly cried on her husband’s shoulder.

The check-fraud scheme was a major crime, and the wide use of steroids “affects the integrity of athletic competition,” the judge said. If Jones had told the truth from the start, he said, it would have been a great help to the ongoing investigation into the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, the lab at the center of the steroids scandal in professional sports.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs “sends all the wrong messages to all who follow the athlete’s every move,” Karas said, apparently referring to children. “Athletes in society have an elevated status. They entertain, they inspire and, perhaps most important, they serve as role models.”

Jones, after saying she was scared, nervous and “deeply sorry,” had implored the judge “to be as merciful as a human being can be.” With a catch in her voice, she asked him not to take her away from her two young sons, the younger of whom is still nursing. [source]

No Conflict Free European Yaki For Remy

No Conflict Free European Yaki For Remy

A judge has denied a request by Remy Ma, accused of shooting an acquaintance in July over missing money, to travel to Europe for a five-country concert tour.

Ivan Fisher, lawyer for the 26-year-old rapper, told the judge his client, whose real name is Remy Smith, needs the tour to earn money. Since her arrest, Fisher said, Smith has been unable to get sufficient U.S. bookings, and a proposed recording contract has been put on hold.

Fisher told the judge the tour, which was to begin in Paris on Dec. 31, would net Smith up to $40,000, “which she very much needs.”

Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller said Thursday she wouldn’t allow Smith to leave the U.S. because of the serious charges facing her. [source]

That’s the breaks, that’s the breaks! Looks like Remy may need to check out Monster.com

Michael Vick Sentenced To 23 Months

Michael Vick Sentenced To 23 Months

Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison Monday for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy that involved gambling and killing pit bulls.

The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback could have been sentenced up to five years by District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Vick was dressed in a black-and-white striped prison suit and apologized to the court and his family.

Hudson responded, “You need to apologize to the millions of young people who looked up to you.”

“Yes, sir,” Vick said.

Vick acknowledged he used “poor judgment” and added, “I’m willing to deal with the consequences and accept responsibility for my actions.”

Before the hearing started, Michael Vick’s brother, Marcus Vick, sat with his right arm around their mother, comforting her as she buried her head in her hands and wept.

Vick pleaded guilty in August, admitting he bankrolled the “Bad Newz Kennels” dogfighting operation and helped kill six to eight dogs. [source]

All I have to say about this whole mess is that this shit will never happen to Ellen. Never.

I just hit that bitch with a bottle!

Female rapper Da Brat was arrested on felony aggravated assault charges early Thursday morning (November 1) after allegedly hitting a woman in the face with a bottle at Jermaine Dupri’s Studio 72 club in Atlanta.

According to Atlanta’s WSBTV Channel 2, the altercation started out as a verbal disagreement but soon escalated to a shoving match. Witnesses say that the rapper then grabbed a bottle of rum and hit the victim, a waitress at the club, in the face with it. The unidentified woman was hospitalized with cuts on her face and above her eye. Da Brat was taken to the Dekalb County Jail and is believed to still be in custody. (source)

Damn homie. I bet she is talking on one of those pokey phones like in the video for “Ghetto Love.” I hope T-Boz has bond money!

Kelly Rowland Cancels Tour Dates

Kelly Rowland Cancels Tour Dates

Ladies, wallets, leave ’em, home.

Word on the curb is that Kizzy Rowland’s upcoming North America tour is in danger of being cancelled due to poor ticket sales. She was previously scheduled to appear in 15 cities, but so far she has cancelled three shows with no ticket refunds.

‘Cause her daddy Mathew Knowles taught her better than that!

Promoters are having difficulties finding smaller venues for Ms. Rowland to perform at. Awww, she should try hitting up a Lions Club or Kid Creole can give out two free tickets with the purchase of a B Phone.

I blame the stans for dropping the ball. Ya’ll talk all that shit but won’t go out and support your folk. You’re going to feel bad when you turn on your televisions and see her selling ass on Take The Cake with Tocarra and Joe Clair.
