Basketball Wives:Los Angeles

Get in gear ladies and gents Vh1 is premiering the LA version of BBW August 29, 2011. The cast will have Gloria Govan (Laker Bencher Matt Barnes Fiance and from Season 1 and 2 of BBW Miami )and her sister Laura Govan, who is the sister of Gloria, NBA star Gilber Arenas’ former (babymama, wife, jumpoff?) flame, BUT also the alleged woman who slept with Shaquille O’Neal…..Executive producer of the BBW shows…..Vh1 is dirty for that lol. Also on the cast is

Kimsha Artest is the wife of Ron Artest of the Los Angeles Lakers

Imani Showalter is the ex-fiancee of Stephen Jackson of the Golden State Warriors

Jackie Christie is the wife of Doug Christie former player for the Los Angeles Clippers. She has been said to be the peacemaker of the group and knows everyone when it comes to the NBA. (I guess she is the Shaunie of this season)

They say it will be lots of drama but I guess we have to tune in to believe it. Without my girl Tammy it may not be as entertaining. Shaunie has let it be known the cast has been “sprinkled with trash” lol saying “it’s suppose to be about women who form a sisterhood because their common bond is basketball affiliation by boyfriend, fiancee, husband..not just someone who slept with a ball player” lmao.

She also said she will not by associated with this season other than title only……I dont blame her, look at the pic above….3 out of 6 of the cast look a lil grimey lol.

Planking Is Last Week…This Week Owling…Too Much Time On Ya Hands

Urbandictionary.com is defining owling as, “The act of displaying oneself on-top of miscellaneous objects in a sitting position while holding your knees.” I am so tired of this ignorance from not just black people all people. People are showing just how easy it is to get Americans to do whatever they want us to do. Watch some famous people start tweeting it and all of your facebook friends are going to be doing it. Shout to to all the plankers and owlers aka FOLLOWING ASS PEOPLE….DO YOU!

Mike Tyson Films In Michigan

Picture-6

August 7, 2011 Same Name will be airing on CBS which will feature Mike Tyson as one of the episodes. Celebrities find a regular non famous person with the same name and they switch lives. Mike traded places with a nurse’s assistant also named Mike Tyson in Grand Rapids, MI

“I felt it was crazy,” he said, “and the more I kept associating with these kind of bizarre shows, like Funny or Die and all these things, I became somewhat used to making a fool of myself, it comes pretty natural.”

That show may be pretty good with the right celebrities….because who really watches CBS anymore?

Remembering Amy Winehouse

This death report actually was surprising to me despite the alcohol and drug usage. I personally liked Amy Winehouse and was looking forward to seeing the documentary about her life called “Saving Amy”. Winehouse passed away Saturday at her England home in Camden. She was found dead in her bed about 3:30 pm…she was only 27 and a little over a month away from her 28th birthday September 14th. Amy had battled with drugs at a young age, going so far as to injecting horse sterroids to get an ultimate high.

She had a bad marriage and was also dealing with anorexia. But her music was a way to channel her pain through her music. Her famous cd Back to Black received grammy awards and marked her spot in music history. She was a jazz and r&b sound musician, and one of her favorite singers were Billie Holiday.

Amy was extremely talented but due to the drugs….she never got a chance to show the world all of what she could do. On July 23, 2011 she became a legend who passed away at the same age of Janis Joplin, Curt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix just to name a few. Of course people are saying it must have been a drug overdosem but according to UK police, no drugs or alcohol were found at the apartment. An autopsy will be performed today…..Rest In Peace Amy!

BREAKING NEWS

Twin terror attacks rocked Norway on Friday when a bomb wrecked government buildings, including the prime minister’s office, and a gunman dressed as a police officer opened fire at an island youth camp.

At least seven people were killed and several injured in the city center blast, NBC News reported.

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg was not in the building at the time of the explosion, which happened around 3:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. EDT), Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported.

Separately, a man in a police uniform opened fire at a Labour Party youth camp on an island outside Oslo, Norwegian media said. Investigators told local media they suspect a link between the shootings and the blast. Norwegian TV2 said several people were killed on the island of Utoya, but there was no confirmation of the report. Police said they have arrested one person after the shooting. Stoltenberg had been scheduled to attend the event on the island, but was home, police said.

Police confirmed at least seven dead in the Oslo blast. At least 10 injured people were admitted to Oslo University Hospital, a hospital spokesman told Reuters. The toll could be higher, with the police chief saying there have been “a lot” of casualties and reports of people trapped in the building.

Oslo police said the explosion was caused by a bomb, the NTB news agency said.

Why would terrorists want to attack Norway?

The blast blew out most windows on the 17-story building housing Stoltenberg’s office, as well as nearby ministries including the oil ministry, which was on fire.

Heavy debris littered the streets and a tall plume of brown smoke rose over the city center. The tangled wreckage of a car could be seen near the blast site.

The Reuters correspondent said the streets had been fairly quiet in mid-afternoon on a Friday in high summer, when many Oslo residents take vacation or leave for weekend breaks.

Officials were trying to confirm reports of people trapped inside buildings, government minister Hans Kristian Amundsen told BBC.

“We are trying to stay focused, and we are focused, on the rescue operation,” he said.user, Christian Aglen, @chaglen, posted what he said was a short video of the aftermath of the blast.

‘Lingering smell’ like 9/11
Olaf Furniss, a freelance journalist in Oslo, told BBC News that people he had spoken to feared it was a terrorist attack.

The BBC reported residents as saying there was a smell of sulfur in the air and asked Furniss about this.

“I was in New York three weeks after 9/11, there was still a lingering smell [and] I would compare it to that, it’s very similar to that,” he replied.

Furniss told the BBC that he was in a cafe when the blast went off, but he had not realized how big it was until he went outside.

People open up your eyes! You cant tell me Jesus is not on the way back and God is not about to finally give the world our judgement! “Sulfur smell”? Grab your Bibles or google sulfur and the Bible and see what you come up with.

A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. Revelation 9:18
