OFF DEM DIPPAS: LAURENCE FISBURNE'S DAUGHTER PLANS TO RELEASE A SEX TAPE

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


In off dem dippas news, Oscar-nominated actor, Laurence Fishburne's daughter Montana, age 19, intentionally plans to release a sex tape!

But it gets better Chicks and Dicks, Montana thinks releasing a sex tape will further her career...and you do what again?

"I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape," said Montana.

According to TMZ, the tape will be released through Vivid Entertainment sometime in August.

Um, where do I begin...right, let me start off by saying kids just say NO to DRUGS and get your EDUCATION!

Now that I have fulfilled my PSA duties, Montana please "wake up and smell the KY!"

Hate to be the bearer of bad news boo, but you're BLACK!

That means the Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton step by step booklet on how to release a sex tape and become a "celebrity" will not work for you.

This is America jack, and unfortunately racism, stereotypes and double standards are not only alive and well but they thrive in our society.

So although you actually have a famous father Montana and there is notoriety in that, (let's be honest just because Robert Kardashian (R.I.P.) became known to the public for being one of OJ's lawyers does not mean Kim grew up a celebrity kid. Rich kid, yes. Celebrity kid, no. And don't even get me started on Paris.) does not mean you will receive some of the same types of opportunities that Kim and Paris have been afforded.

The stereotype exist that black women are sexually promiscuous and irresponsible. With that said, Montana will likely just be labeled another black "nappy headed hoe" whose father just happens to be Laurence Fisburne.

The most fame Montana will get out of releasing her sex tape is being featured on an episode of TV One's "Life After." *cues Jaimee Foxworth*

ELLEN DEGENERES LEAVES AMERICAN IDOL

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



Popular daytime talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres has decided to leave her part-time gig as one of the co-host of Fox's hit singing competition, American Idol.

"A couple of months ago, I let Fox and the 'American Idol' producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me," said DeGeneres.

DeGeneres went on to say, "[i]t was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I'd bargained for."

She admitted that critiquing contestants on the show just wasn't her thing. "I realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings."

Although Ellen has left the show, the departure seems amicable. "I loved the experience of working on 'Idol,' and I am very grateful," says DeGeneres.

Rumors has it my girl Jennifer Lopez will be one of the new judges joining Idol this upcoming season.

Also rumors are surfacing that Kara DioGuardi was fired as a judge on Idol and the show will be going back to a 3-panel judge format with Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler joining Jennifer Lopez and original Idol judge Mr. Randy Watson Jackson, from the "What's Going Down" episode of "That's My Momma" this season as a judge.

Jessica Simpson name has also been tossed around as possibly joining Idol as a new judge this season.

This past January, Simon Cowell, one of three original judges on Idol, made the announcement that this past season would be his last as co-host. Also, Paula Abdul left Idol last year over a contract dispute concerning her salary.

I personally don't think being a judge on Idol is a good look for JLo. Naysayers can say what they want about Jenny, but she is a superstar! I think viewers seeing her every Tuesday night hosting Idol may make her too accessible and diminish her star power..."just my thoughts man, right or wrong...just what I was feeling at the time."

OBAMA VISITS THE VIEW (VIDEO)!

SEAN BELL'S ESTATE & 2 OTHERS AWARDED $7 MILLION SETTLEMENT

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



The city of New York has agreed to pay more than $7 million to Sean Bell's estate and two other parties involved in the civil lawsuit.

In 2006, Bell was exiting a strip club in Queens with two friends after his bachelor party, when the group got into an altercation with 3 plain clothes New York police officers --who the surviving victims say did not identify themselves as officers.

The officers end up firing 50 shots at Bell and his friends, who were unarmed. One of the officers fired his gun 31 times that fateful night, pausing to reload his weapon.

Bell died at the scene just hours before his wedding and his 2 friends were seriously wounded.

Bell's estate was awarded $3.25 million in the settlement and the money will be split between his two children and placed in a trust until they reach the age of 18.



Bell's fiance Nicole Paultre-Bell (she legally had her last name changed to Bell) will receive nothing from the settlement since New York laws does not recognize unmarried partners in these sorts of settlements.

One of the victims, Joseph Guzman, was struck by 17 bullets and will receive $3 million in the settlement. Trent Benefield, the other victim was not as seriously injured and will receive $900,000.

Michael Cardozo an attorney for the New York City Law Department remarked regarding the settlement, "[t]he city regrets the loss of life in this tragic case, and we share our deepest condolences with the Bell family. We hope that all parties can find some measure of closure by this settlement."

The 3 officers involved in the Bell murder were acquitted of all charges in April 2008 and they are still working for the New York Police Department under a modified work schedule. However, the officers are under investigation by the Department, which may result in their dismissal. I doubt it!

Although the money will likely benefit Bell's children tremendously, it can not replace the fact that those children will grow up without their father.

I also feel for Nicole. I can't imagine what it's like to hear on what is suppose to be the happiest day of your life, your wedding, that your fiance has  been murdered...by police no less.

I sincerely hope all the victims and their families of this senseless tragedy can finally begin to heal. And as far as I'm concerned, those 3 NYofficers should be dismissed from the department, no question!

What does that say about our justice system that 3 officers, whose duty is to protect and serve the community, can murder an innocent unarmed man and seriously injure two others and the officers' only punishment is a slap on the wrist?

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



Former "Sister, Sister" star Tamera Mowry recently got engaged to Fox News correspondent, Adam Housley.

Housley reportedly popped the question to Mowry while the couple vacationed in Italy. This is the second time the couple has gotten engaged. The couple was engaged a couple of years ago but later called off the engagement.

Allegedly Tamera may still need to convince her family that Housley is the right man for her. Sources tell E!, "[h]er family is not crazy about him. Tia and Adam don't always get along, but the couple are happy together and giving it another try."

No word yet on the date the couple plan to wed.

Well congratulations to Tamera and Adam and hopefully things will work out this go around.

Sidebar: What ever happened with Tamera and Hosea Chanchez (Malik El Debarge Wright from the sitcom "The Game")? If you Chicks and Dicks remember months ago I reported they were a new item...oh well I guess it was too good to be true *sighs*...

DMX BACK IN JAIL & HIS WIFE FILES FOR SEPARATION AND PLANS REALITY SHOW

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


*sniff, sniff* Now this is the DMX I remember!


According to Billboard.com, rapper Earl "DMX" Simmons turned himself into a downtown LA courthouse on Monday (7/26), to begin surviving a 90-day sentence stemming from a 2002 reckless driving conviction.
"Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said the 39-year-old turned himself in at a downtown courthouse. He said a judge ruled that DMX cannot be freed on electronic monitoring, work release or home detention."



In related news, reportedly Tashera Simmons, DMX's wife of 11 years, recently filed for legal separation from the rapper. 


Tashera is also planning to star in a reality show aptly titled, "Tashera...Life After X" and the show will chronicle how her family is dealing with DMX's legal and drug problems and how they cope with a husband and a father that has let them down over and over again.”


This is the part where I usually start clowning the person(s) that is the topic of my post, but I'm not in this instance because I really think DMX is a great talent and I want him to win! I really do.


So, get it togeva DMX! If not for your own well being, then do it for your kids...and Tashera, you know you love that girl!


Check out this video of Lil Kim bringing DMX on stage during her show in Arizona, after the break!



LINDA HOGAN ENGAGED TO HER 21 YEAR-OLD BOYFRIEND

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

So this is the type of foolishness you're purchasing for yourself and Charlie (lawd knows he ain't got no real money) with your alimony? My bad I forgot you were bamma from the get go Linda, proceed...


Reportedly, Hulk Hogan's ex-wife Linda Hogan age 50,  recently got in engaged to her 21 year-old boyfriend, Charlie Hill (pictured above).

Hulk is said to be "very happy for Linda" and "wishes them both well."

Sources claim that Linda plans to marry Charlie next summer aboard her yacht, "Alimoney." Linda-boo tried it, lol!


Hulk age 56 is also planning to walk down the aisle with his 31 year-old girlfriend, Jennifer McDaniel (pictured above).

I see Hulk and Linda sure do like them young. I guess I must be the only one that finds it strange that the former couple each plan to marry people who look like younger replicas of them. 

Actually Jennifer looks more like Hulk and Linda's 20 year-old daughter Brooke Hogan, pictured below.



This picture of a younger Hulk bares a striking resemblance to Linda's fiance Charlie


Hulk is likely "very happy for Linda['s]" future nuptials because if she gets remarried, Hulk is no longer required to pay alimony.

Linda, I'm sure you're loving Charlie's "companionship" and all, but you might want to rethink this marriage thing before you find yourself broke as a joke. 

Because let's be honest, does Charlie boy have any real money to support your costly lifestyle of acrylic nails and all things spandex...I didn't think so!

DAMN, WHY THEY WANNA STICK ME FOR MY PAPERS: DIDDY, DOUGIE FRESH & DR. DRE ORDERED TO PAY UP!


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to the New York Daily News, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Douglas “Dougie Fresh” Davis are among the thousands of people and companies that collectively owe New York City $1.9 billion.

Diddy allegedly owes $996,000 to the city for illegally plastering posters around the city. The City also claims that Dougie owes $191,000 in unpaid business taxes.

We don't need to see a 100 of the same posters, plastered on the same wall that Black Rob's "I Ain't Neva Comin' Home" album is being release to deduce the obvious. 

The $1.9 billion purportedly owed to the city by thousands of debtors like Diddy and Dougie makes up a portion of New York City’s $4.9 billion deficit, which has forced them to cut funding to schools, day care centers and other treasured services.

A spokesman for Combs described the bill as a "bureaucratic error," saying it was paid by a partner company three years ago but the city hasn't updated the record. A city spokesman said lawyers are reviewing the issue.

Finance Commissioner David Frankel vows to make debtors pay up. Frankel said, "[w]e are going to find these people. We're going to turn them upside down by their ankles and we're going to shake them until the money comes out of their pockets."

Things must be real bad for NYC when the Commissioner threatens to get gully on debtors and start roughing people up for that guap!

MY BAD HOMIE: PRESIDENT OBAMA APOLOGIZES TO SHIRELY SHERROD

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to the Washington Post, President Obama personally apologized to former U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) official Shirely Sherrod during a 8 a.m. phone call on Wednesday (7/22).
"The President told Ms. Sherrod that this misfortune can present an opportunity for her to continue her hard work on behalf of those in need, and he hopes that she will do so."
The President's apology comes just days after Sherrod was wrongfully discharge from her position at the USDA, where she oversaw rural development in Georgia.

A selectively edited video surfaced on the net a few days ago which portrayed Sherrod as a racist.



Andrew Breitbart, a right-wing blogger purposefully edited down a speech Sherrod gave at the NACCP, which appeared to show her making remarks about her reluctance to lend support to aid a White farmer some 24 years ago when she worked for a non-profit organization geared toward assisting Black farmers.

USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack also apologized to Sherrod for unjustly dismissing her and offered her a new position at the USDA dealing with civil rights and outreach, but Sherrod seems unlikely to accept the offer.
"I would not be that individual that the department, everyone is looking to to solve the issue of racism in USDA. It takes a lot more to get that job done."
Sherrod also told CNN's "American Morning" that said she would like to "get back at" Andrew Breitbart (phucker!). Asked whether she would like to see Breitbart's website shut down, Sherrod replied: "That would be a great thing...he's doing more to divide us."

WHOA-DEE: NELSON MANDELA'S GRANDCHILDREN HELD UP BY GUNMEN

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne




According to reports, former South African President, Nelson Mandela's granchildren were held up by gunmen near the entrance of Mandela's daughter Zindzi's home in Johannesburg, after leaving the beloved Civil Rights leader's 92nd birthday celebration.
Reportedly, the grandchildren were returning to their home when two gunmen approached their car and ordered all the occupants to lie down near the entrance of Zindzi's home.
The gunmen fired one shot and the family driver returned fire which cause the gunmen to flee. 
The police say that no one was harmed during the robbery attempt.
In related news, last month Mandela's great-grandaughter Zenani, 13, died in a car crash on her way home from the FIFA World Cup opening concert. The driver of the car is scheduled to appear in court on Monday to face homicide and drunk driving charges.
I'm mean I know the block has been BEYOND hot in South Africa for ages, but damn whoadie!

Yall try to pull the creep move and rob Mandela's grandkids (I'm sure the gunmen knew who they were) knowing they have armed security with them...makes me feel sorry for the everyday South African who doesn't have a security detail.

THAT BABY DON'T LOOK LIKE ME!: BLACK NIGERIAN COUPLE DELIVERS WHITE BABY


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



*sings* "That baby don't look like me!"

A Black Nigerian couple gave birth to a Caucasian-looking baby this week in London.

According to Honey Magazine,
Nigerian couple Ben and Angela Ihegboro were in for quite the surprise when Angela gave birth to a fair skinned, blue-eyed, blonde-haired baby girl this week in a London hospital. Ben Ihegboro was quick to dispel any rumors of unfaithfulness on behalf of his wife. “Of course she is mine. My wife is true to me,” said Ihegboro, reports NYPost.com. “Even if she hadn’t been, the baby still wouldn’t look like that.” Baby Nmachi has of course baffled scientists. They are unable to explain how exactly the Ihegboro’s gave birth to such a child. Some scientists believe that although Nmachi is not Albino she may have a mutated version of the condition. Other scientists believe that Nmachi is a result of dormant white genes.
Things that make you say hmmm!

 Lol, at the husband's "of course she is mine, [m]y wife is true to me" response.

Are you sure bruh, bruh? No but seriously, those are my peoples and genetics can be an unpredictable thing sometimes. 

I just think this picture is hilarious because that poor baby looks to be in pain by the way her parents have her all hemmed up with her loose neck self, lol!

WHEN IT ALL FALLS DOWN: CHINA EXPERIENCES LARGEST OIL SPIL IN HISTORY & SANDRA BULLOCK, LENNY KRAVITZ AND OTHERS DO GULF COAST PSA (VIDEO)

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



This can’t be life…

According to MSNBC, last Friday (7/16) China experienced its largest oil spill in history.

The spill occurred when a pipeline owned by China National Petroleum Corp., Asia's biggest oil and gas producer by volume, exploded. No information as to what caused the explosion has been uncovered, but information regarding the size of the spill have begun to be exposed.

Wednesday (7/21) reports surfaced that the spill had doubled in size.  
China Central Television earlier reported an estimate of 1,500 tons of oil has spilled. That would amount roughly to 400,000 gallons (1,500,000 liters) — as compared with 94 million to 184 million gallons in the BP oil spill off the U.S. coast.






The oil is said to be a mixture of half-solid and half liquid and “is as sticky as asphalt." Efforts to cleanup up the spill include straw mats and workers equipped with rubber gloves*Lil Jon voice* WHAT? WHAT? *side-eye* OK!





The spill has also had a fatal affect as it has already claimed the life of at least one person. Zhang Liang, a 25-year-old firefighter assisting with the cleanup, drowned on Tuesday (7/20) when a wave threw him from a vessel.






President Hu Jintao cleanup goal is ambitious to say the least. The President remarked,
"Our priority is to collect the spilled oil within five days to reduce the possibility of contaminating international waters."
The AP is reporting that the pipeline that exploded and caused the oil spill has resumed operations. 

This is a victory since the due to the pipeline explosion the oil shipments have been reduced from part of China's strategic oil reserves to the rest of the country.

To add to the good news, reports coming out of China state that more than 400 tons of oil have been cleaned up since 9 a.m. yesterday (7/21).

However, the most significant effects of the spill maybe yet to come. 

Zhao Zhangyuan, a researcher with the China Environmental Science Research Institute, told the Shanghai Morning News earlier this week that the ecological harm from the spill could last a decade. Zhao said,
"[t]he most critical is the effect on people, the effect on health because the decomposing oil will produce some carcinogenic substances that could move along the food chain to humans."

WHOA-DEE: USC PLANS TO RETURN REGGIE BUSH'S HEISMAN TROPHY DUE TO NCAA SCANDAL

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne




According to USA Today, the University of Southern California (USC) intends to return former Trogan footbball star Reggie Bush's 2005 Heisman trophy back to the Heisman Trophy Trust, due to NCAA stiff sanctions imposed on the school last month.
USC's president-elect, C.L. Max Nikias said in a memo sent to members of the "USC Trojan family," announcing that Pat Haden would replace Mike Garrett as athletic director,
The Trojan family honors and respects the USC sporting careers of those persons whose actions did not compromise their athletic program or the opportunities of future USC student-athletes. Accordingly, I have instructed the senior vice president for administration to remove athletic jerseys and murals displayed in recognition of O.J. Mayo and Reggie Bush by mid-August -- before the incoming class of students moves on campus -- from Heritage Hall, the Galen Center and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The university also will return Mr. Bush's 2005 Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Trophy Trust in August.
