Apologies for not updating the blog in a timely manner. Delayed flights, busy week, you know the story.
This week the New York Times had several disturbing articles. But don’t fright because last Sunday’s wedding and celebrations provided a real gem!

The wedding of Cara Nussbaum and Scott Fudemberg.
Now most of you youngsters may remember Cara from the “Real World” Chicago. She was the bulimic crazy one.
Ms. Nussbaum meet Scott(at the singles hotspot Starbucks)shortly before she left St. Louis to go start the filming of the “Real World".
"He was the cutest boy I'd ever seen," recalled Ms. Nussbaum. Alright that's a good start! But then that pesky show called and she had to leave the cutest boy ever and head to Chicago. Where later she embarrassed herself with sexual romps, bouts with bulimia and depression. This wasn’t so bad until the shows actually aired for the whle world to see
"Everyone has a past," Dr. Fudemberg said. "But that's not something you necessarily want to review with them on national television." Ummm Yes!! Of course you don’t want to know that your girlfriend is a crazed, overly sexual, psycho! But better earlier than later.
Poor Scott didn't see the writing on the wall or missed some key eposides. As the lovers were married last week. Even Kyle attended (the jock that never took off that damn Princeton shirt). Apparently Kyle is happily living in Salem as he is now on “Days of our Lives”
But of course there is a price to pay for everything. Dr. Fudenberg is doing his residency in the hot and happening town of Leavenworth, Kan. And our little party girl Cara is now a salesgirl at the Serendipity clothing store. But I have a feeling that a career was never one of her many ambitions.
Time until the divorce: Four years
An incredibly sad and depressing wedding announcement: priceless

And then the Times just pissed me off by printing this story:
“Atop Hedge Funds, Richest of the Rich Get Even More So”
The top 25 hedge managers are now making upwards of 130 million a year. And with the top ten earning on average 500 million. WTF?! Just to get perspective of this absurdness the top grossing film the “Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe” had world wide sales of just under 400 million.

And if I wasn’t angry enough, they print this story.

"A Vision of Pale Beauty Carries Risks for Asia's Women"

Asian women are suffering serious deformities from skin lightening creams. Now that it’s almost summer; almost every other commercial here in Europe is for self-tanning lotions. Europeans are unhappy with their white skin and the third world aspires for pale skin. The world is just screwed up!

And speaking of skin creams. It seems that someone has been dipping her face in some skin lightening cream. She just gets more pathetic by the day

Enough of the times. I may just have to start a separate blog to comment on their foolishness.
But then I came across this picture and everything was right in the world again.

I so love him. SEXY!!

This week Janet graces the cover US magazine. The consensus is that the picture was airbrushed.So what if the picture had a bit of help?! If I was on a magazine cover in my underwear I would demand some airbrushing. Anyway she looks great and the real test will come when she starts touring.

Before and After

And more recent.... you decide

I don't even want to think about what these two are up to. SCARY!

And someone else that pushing 40 but looking fantastic! Ms. Berry promoting X-men.
I used to think that she looked better with short hair but not so much anymore

And I somehow missed this picture of Jen. WOW! Who needs babies when you have legs like that.

Why is Brandy trying to do sexy? Nope not working

Last week I said that Bey could “do no wrong”. That was until I heard an interview with her this week. It was like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard. She’s still cute but she desperately needs some speech lessons.

Michelle is looking busted. I don’t think she’s going to age very well. Since she looks like she is a star pupil at the “Whitney Houston School” of harden appearance.

Britney out in public with rollers in her hair. Can someone please explain the need for someone to wear rollers out in public?! Preferably someone from the great state of Louisiana.

And what was Prince thinking?

And rumor has it that the second coming will be born any moment now. More snark to follow on this story.
UPDATE: It's a girl! Happy Birthday Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt.

Nicole with a McDonalds bag. Why oh why does she insist on playing this game? I want to see her bite into a hamburger and not run to the bathroom three seconds later.

And I'm going to go out a limb here and predict that the Suns will win the NBA title.
You can take that to Vegas and send me any profits
Until next time.

I’m a child of the 70’s.........

I’m a child of the 70’s, so I’ve seen a lot of change happen. Another messenger tag from a colleague, which I find to be very true. Us 70’s kids are the last generation to grow up with a bit of naivety and innocence. We grew up thinking that Boy George just liked wearing make-up and Michael Jackson was just a man that liked hanging out with monkeys.

The good ol' days.

It's True!

Jen has confirmed her pregnancy to "In Touch". I love it when internet rumors are true. Especially the ones that I spread on this blog.

Poor Britney. Does she really need another baby?

Almost dropping little Sean.

And then sobbing about it. Couldn’t she at least do that in the car instead of in public? Even I’m starting to feel sorry for her.

Dr. Huxtable is causing trouble again. He gave the commencement speech at Spellman College (A historically black liberal arts college for women) last week and basically said that black men ain’t about sh*t!
"You have to know that it is time for you all to take charge," Cosby said. "You have to seriously see yourselves not as the old women where the men stood in front and you all stood behind, because the men, most of them are in prison."

Cliff that’s pretty harsh. Start talking solutions…..

But then he also said.
"have memorized the lyrics of very difficult rap songs. …And they know how to send their sperm cells out and then walk away from the responsibility of something called fatherhood."
Alright Dr. Huxtable, I can't argue with that one.

O made the party rounds this week.
First at the 20th Anniversary of Spike's 40 Acres production company

She looks very glowing. I want Gayle's job!

And then catching up with Kayne at some event. I couldn't be bothered finding out the name....sorry

Gayle: "Oh hells no! He is not trying to push up on my girl"

Kiki at a BP fashion shoot. I us
e the word "fashion" very loosely here, as I would not normally dare to call BabyPhat fashion.

Looking ever so pleasant.

Can someone please get my damn accessories children away from me!

Janet celebrating her 40th Birthday. Check out the video clip here

I have a rule of not ever mentioning Paris Hilton on this blog. But... this is just too funny.
Paris Hilton= Tupac? According to Best Week Ever they do....WTF?! Check out the hilarious post here

Another "Fashion Shoot"

"Our mom makes us wear really cheap looking clothes"

Bey arriving in Nice for the premiere of “Dream Girls”. She really can do no wrong...except when she's wearing "house of d" fashions.

The world’s sexist daddy. He's everything that Brad Pitt wants to be.

Vivi found a new boy toy.

She's really starting to look like that old woman from "There's something about Mary"

Next week I'll have a new book review. I'm finishing up the new Phillip Roth book "Everyman"
Until then....

Thongs are footwear not underwear

“Thongs are footwear not underwear”. A colleague has that on her MSN messenger and I thought it was absolutely brilliant! Not sure if I always agree but definitely should be followed on most occasions. But then again, I believe I’ve seen this same colleague’s thong showing on a few occasions.

The NYTimes came out with a list of the best American fiction in the last 25 years. And the winner: Beloved by Toni Morrison. I was actually one of the few people that liked the movie also. Phillip Roth has several books on the list not sure why though. "The Known World" also made the list again a great book but not sure I would it put up there with the best work of American fiction. Check out the article here

Page six reported this week that our Stah, has effectively been fired from The View. As much I dislike Stah, I was somewhat saddened by the news. I felt like I was bamboozled into thinking that Stah and Rosie would face off every morning at the table. But apparently this was never in the works, as the major stipulation on Rosie’s contract was that Stah would leave the show.
Stah gave every blogger and celebrity gossip site awesome snark material for the last five years. Millions of people tuned in to be disgusted at her latest antics. And when she married GAL it was as if our dreams had come true. Our Stah was marrying a gay man and didn’t even know it! (honest mistake it can happen to the best of us). Talk about great material. So in effect people, we have been cheated from the grand finale of this comical opera- there will be no cat fight with Rosie, no break down after Gal moves in with his new Sugar Daddy. And I’m damn mad about it!

Last week I did an before and after on Halle Berry. I thought it would be fun to do some more before and afters of other celebs.

Then: Lookin' good. Nice curves and actual breasts (courtesy of "letters to famous people")

Now: Lookin' horrible. "I'm shrinking" (courtesy of "letters to famous people")

Lookin' like a cow

Lookin' better. Or as good as Stah can look.

Now: Picture speaks for itself.

Then: lookin' good. And not at all fat and much happier! Just really crappy hair extensions.

Lookin' Better

Lookin' scary!

Michelle Rodriquez being released from jail. Saying it was “A liberating experience”
WHATEVER…. And although I’m now taking boxing lessons, Michelle can still kick my ass so I won’t say anything more. Except that I love the brown bag!

What's up with Tyra's hairline?

Is it wrong that I like her?

Nice to see that Rick Fox is still fine! I've had a thing for him since his UNC days.
Heard he was a jerk though.

Janet looked great at Oprah's Legend ball. Now if only the little guy can grow a bit.

Can someone please buy Kiki’s new makeup line or else

Later during the week: scaring the shit out of Rus.

Ms. Lopez canceled her tour of Eastern Europe, which means that her fan base is down to zero. But the rumor is that she canceled the tour because she’s pregnant not because she actually has no talent to sing live.

Serena is looking more and more like a tranny.

This week Britney confirmed on David Letterman that she is pregnant. But you knew that already from my post a few weeks ago. Not sure if a congratulations is in order. Now the next question is: how does all this affect her career and mental state? Especially when she is going to have two children under two years old, with a very shady, dodgy character as a father? I’m sure Lauryn Hill can answer that question. And the sad part is that Britney doesn’t even have an ounce of Lauryn’s talent. So basically let’s say goodbye to Brit. They should probably start a support group.

And another basketball game.

Another visit to Miami. The rumor mill is churning with information on Bey and Jay. According to some of my random internet sources Bey is scheduled to be back in the studio this fall. Which I think is actually a bad move. She is still suffering from a bit of over exposure and a longer break would probably do her some good.
Again my random sources are telling me that there was a bit of trouble in MIA. Jay apparently ignored Bey for most of the trip- doing what I’m not really sure. So maybe one of my favorite couples is also on the rocks.

According to the National Enquirer Whitney has a serious brain tumor. Doctors report that the type of tumor she allegedly has can cause unexplained behavior, hallucinations, and extreme sexual lust. My question is how long has she been living with this tumor? Because Whitney has been batshit crazy for the last ten years.

Ashlee Simpson is being taken to task for having a nose job. So what, she had a nose job?! Girl you look much better with the new nose, so money well spent.
Until next time.
