Two celebrities pled no contest to charges related to mistreating women today. I actually worked on a post about Ray J this morning and then scrapped it because it was not a story I had been covering here. The fact that there were two plea deals made today just struck me as odd so I thought I would mention it.
First up, CeeLo Green plead no contest to a felony charge of supplying a controlled substance stemming from charges made by a woman who says he slipped ecstasy into her drink and she later woke up nude in his bed. Continue reading
Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Christina has been doing a fairly decent job of staying off the radar lately. Until about 11:30 this morning. Her brotherhusband, Nick Gordon was driving down Holcomb Bridge Road, a major artery in Roswell, this morning and attempted to change lanes but ran into the curb flipping his black BMW SUV completely over and into a fire hydrant. Ouch that had to hurt.
But apparently he was wearing his seat belt and also intoxicated to that help him from sustaining any injuries. Gordon was charged with failure to maintain his lane (heh), driving on a suspended license, and DUI. He’s sitting over in the Roswell Detention Center at the moment if you want to drop by and say hello. Continue reading

Well that was a lot faster than I expected. Apollo Nida has been ordered to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington Kentucky on September 10th 2014 by 12 noon. FMC Lexington is an old prison that was once used primarily as a psychiatric hospital. The word on the prison circuit is that it has limited air conditioning and gets very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Apollo will be allowed to spend up to $320 a month on beanie weenies and snickers bars. He will be in a hospital environment for the first part of his “drug treatment” program. When he is cleared to work he will spend 90 days working in food service before he can request a different job assignment. The best job assignments are in one of the onsite factories.

I went through a Chelsea Handler phase a few years ago. Then I took her book on vacation to Saint Lucia for my trashy beach read and HATED it. And just like that I was over her. But this clip of seriously a boat ton of people singing her off the show is great. Leann Rimes at the end having issues with everyone being off key was funny.
The ladies all arrive to the reunion in sweats without a drop of makeup on. They are filmed getting ready for the day. Heather Dubrow gets a haircut with a completely new style while she is preparing to go on national TV. It’s a good thing it came out all right. Vicki seems confident going in this season, which is a new feeling for her, but Andy will trip her up and let herself paint herself into a corner over a airheaded gay stereotype from the show. Heather is there for answers. Shannon’s plan is to stay Zen. Tamra says she never has a problem owning up to what she has done. I can’t decide if I think she believes herself or not.
Vicki’s boobs are ginormous! Are they new? Vicki says she is trying to buy Andales. I just found out that Vicki’s Mexican apartment is a time share. They actually had three time shares. In the divorce, the each took one and sold the other. Those have to be new boobs. They are way up high.
Lizzie dated Nick Lachey both before and after Jessica Simpson.
Andy asks Shannon about her saving a nation in a past life. She said that her holistic dentist consulted a panel of psychics and that’s what they said. That’s why he put the jewels in her teeth for free. He’s dead now. Shannon seems happy and at peace. At least for now. Continue reading

We are to the Everyone Hates Donny show. But now, they have a new girl to shun in Nicole. Donny and Nicole both know they are in a hopeless situation. Donny gets Nicole up to speed. Nicole is nearby. She leaves to go report the conversation to Derrick and Donny informs Nicole that Victoria doesn’t even know where she is. She’s such a clueless mess.
Derrick is rallying his minions telling them not to talk to Nicole. Christine is not in the room and Derrick says if anyone is going to run their mouths it will be her. He’s already setting her up to go home if they can’t get either Donny or Nicole out of the house this week. He’s three moves in front of everyone in this house. I wonder if Team America ends if Donny is evicted. If production decides to do that, it could help to get Donny further in the game. However, currently everyone REALLY hates Donny for absolutely no reason at all. Derrick is the only one to have anything against Donny because he knows that Donny knows Derrick’s exact plan. He explained it very clearly to Cody, but Cody is too stupid to get it.
Please add 3rd degree black belt to Caleb’s list of skills and abilities. Which reminds me we had another Caleb family member visit here today. Continue reading
With little to no explanation, Amber arrives at Melissa’s house with chicken soup of assorted food. Lots of hugs. Melissa’s aunt has died and Joe is very busy with work so she is struggling. Amber was very sweet. She did have to point out that she had cancer just like Melissa’s mom. How long will this détente last?
Nicole and her mom talk about how they are going out to Vino’s restaurant with the family for Valentines Day. Nicole points out she has been with Bobby for a year. Nicole’s mother points out that he can go long stretches without seeing her. She fears that Bobby may be a confirmed bachelor. Nicole is ready to get married. it seems Bobby is not.
Next we are to believe that Joe took all the girls out for a date night while Teresa stays home and signs books. Melissia came over and they opened some Fabelini made a fire and watched The Godfather. Teresa explains that it is her favorite movie and holds a lot of life lessons. I assume the main one would be that as long as you don’t get killed, crime pays very well. Melissa and Teresa seem to have truly made up this time. Maybe. Continue reading

The Giudices head to the beach to enjoy one last month before their sentencing on September 23rd. They were also at the beach this time last year and things didn’t go so well. Let’s hope the cops aren’t called this time.
The ladies of Orange County share their final thoughts on each other in their last blogs of the season.
Vicki on her feelings about her cast mates at the end of the season:
Let’s put it this way, although I don’t agree with everything Tamra does, I want the best for her and don’t want us to be fighting. But the truth of the matter is I don’t agree with what she has done. I personally think Tamra steps way too much into people’s business and I’m hopeful that she has learned a lesson. You can’t go around talking crap on people and expect them not to compare notes. As I said — I don’t really care if Tamra likes Brooks or supports our relationship — but I do ask that she keep the bad mouthing to herself.
It was really great getting to know Shannon this year and despite all the drama in her life, it was good to spend time with her one-on-one in Bali. Despite all the issues with her, Tamra, and Heather, I am hopeful that we all can remain friends and “move on” as they say. I think Shannon is a great person, she knows how to have fun, makes her family her top priority, and does whatever she can to make the necessary changes to keep her marriage intact. I’m proud of her.
Looking back this season, I felt bad about how I treated Heather at times. I am proud to call her my friend, and hate that I was part of any of her hurt. Heather definitely seems to manage her career and her four kids without looking too stressed out, which I really admire. She definitely seems to “have it all.”
Lastly Lizzie — although we started of on a rough note I really have come to like her a lot. She has a spitfire personality and I love a woman to can stand up to Tamra. (Or for that matter even me!) Continue reading

Dating Naked has been a fun show on VH1 this summer. I think I have some sort of conflict when that shows comes on because sometimes it tapes and sometimes it doesn’t. I just watched the last episode where one of the female choices for the main male contestant claimed to be a virgin who had never seen a penis “in real life.” It was pretty funny. It seemed like she was not going to go through with getting naked right from the start. She finally did it and went on a date with a guy who I thought was kind of a jerk. They went out on a boat ride and she puked the entire time. She left the program shortly after the boat finally got her to shore.
So when I heard today that someone was suing VH1 (Thanks for the emails) for showing them naked on a dating naked show, I assumed it was that girl. But it’s not.
It’s a girl named Jesse. She looks familiar and I think I saw the episode, but I really don’t pay that much attention to the show when I watch it, it’s mainly background noise while I work on the blog. I can’t for the life of me remember anything interesting about her or her dating choices. According to her, on one of her dates they failed to blur her genitals for a second or two while she was wrestling a date on the beach. Continue reading
So I gave myself a few hours of “comp time” because I am burning out. I spent the time binge-watching Hotel Hell (don’t bother, it’s just meh, which is what I needed) and when I switched back to TV CNN was on. Remember how we talked about Don Lemon being difficult with a cop and refusing to back up like he was told? Then he kept talking about the cop on live TV like he was a dog? Well apparently, that wasn’t enough for Don. He has now managed to get him fired.
One of the idiot talking heads introduces the story. It’s Breaking News! That this officer was fired for saying bad things against gays, women and Obama! Let’s interview Don Lemon who is wearing a fresh dress shirt and his black nerd glasses for this interview. First of all, the reporter wants us to know that they are not trying to insert Don Lemon in the story. Are you kidding me? They do that every night, several times a night. The reporter says she said when she watched she noticed that officer was “more aggressive” than the other officers.
Don says that this negative video about the officer magically appeared in his email this morning and he immediately called the chief of police. The officer, Dan Page, has 35 years with the force. He has now been fired and will be forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation according to Don. I am not sure your employer can fire you and force you to be psychologically evaluated. Continue reading
Those of us who follow a lot of trials here and else immediately recognized the name Baden when the family attorney announce he would be doing an independent investigation. I won’t go into the reasons why we place no credibility into his work, you can either take word for it or google his name. You will find plenty to read. I was not familiar with the name Shawn Parcells and with three autopsies I really didn’t care much about that one. If you recall, the I said from the beginning that the only one I care about is the first one. It would have the intact body, unwashed, include toxicology and be the most relevant to the case, in my opinion. It was conducted by Mary Case, the Chief Medical Examiner of Saint Louis County.
I had a decent following during the Jodi Arias trial and as always people began contacting me by email to tell me inside scoop and rumors. One of those people, who still comments here but shall remain nameless, is close to a pathologist who is in the loop on some high-profile cases. The commenter emailed me in textspeak the other night and I didn’t have time to interpret but finally asked the commenter to break it down in plain English for me and the gist of the email is that allegedly Baden did not conduct the actual autopsy, he just gave an opinion. The actual autopsy was done by Shawn Parcells who is not licensed to conduct autopsies. Continue reading
