(VIDEO) 10/31/11: KIM KARDASHIAN DUMPS KRIS HUMPHRIES IN ONLY 72 DAYS; SCAM OR REAL?

It was announced today that Kim Kardashian has decided to call it quits after her speedy marriage to Kris Humphries.  In just 72-days it looks like Kim found out quickly, he was not the man for her.  She is expected to file for divorce, instead of requesting an annulment, which seems strange after such a short marriage.  Easy come…easy go!

In watching the reality t.v. show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” it is easy to see why this didn’t last.  Although, surprisingly enough her parents seemed to like Kris, it was obvious he was not yet ready for marriage.  During their first vacation together, upon arrival, he threw her into the ocean like a rag doll.  Her very expensive diamond earring was washed away in the ocean, and as he searched feverishly for it, he was laughing all the way.  Although he was able to find it, this was definitely not a good start.  In that same episode he also offended most family members, making me question her decision.

This break-up is certainly no surprise to many.  It’s just unfortunate they wasted so much money on a lavish televised wedding.  That money could have been used to feed thousands of starving children.  There was a prenuptial agreement so no love lost there, but he actually still gets half of the 17 million dollars paid by E! for their “Fairy Tale Marriage”.  This makes it highly likely he is not as “bummed out” as he says.  With the NBA lock-out, that money will come in handy.

The only family member who truly saw the writing on the wall, was Khole.  Too bad she did not use her strong vocal opinions to warn her sister.  It was clear that this was an incredibly wrong move.

Several sources say the divorce was caused by his decision to “quit the show” and not move to Minnesota, but that is still to be confirmed.

Some tabloids have reported this was all a scam anyway, but that seems a bit over-the-top even for a Kardashian.  What do you think?  Scam or Real?

Let’s hope Kim can learn from her mistake and move slowly the next time she “falls in love” and takes the plunge!  This has to be close to record time for a Kardashian collapsed marriage.

(VIDEO) WORLD’S POPULATION REACHES 7 BILLION ON 10/31/11

According to the UN, on Monday 10/31/11 the World’s population is expected to reach 7 billion.  It’s amazing how analyst would know this figure, but that’s what they are reporting.

Interesting to also note that the World’s population has grown by 1 billion over the past 13 years, over 1/2 the population lives in cities, and over 40% is below the age of 25 years old.

The UN anticipates the figures to grow to 10-15 billion by the end of the century.  If that’s the case, can we expect a food and housing shortage?  I better stock up!

(VIDEO) CHICAGO: PUSHING TO REDUCE PENALTY ON MARIJUANA USE; DOWN TO $200 FINE

Chicago Politicians are pushing to cut the penalty for those caught with less 10 grams of marijuana.  If passed, the new law would reduce penalty from jail time, to a $200 fine and community service.

While some skeptics believe this may cause teens to believe smoking pot is cool, others believe it will free up jail cells, police power and court time, saving the city millions.  This would not hold true for those who are suspected of distributing the drug, only those using it for leisure.

It is a fine line, but let’s face it, the police need to spend more time catching the criminals currently on a shooting spree.  Robberies, shootings and rapes seem to be at an all-time high.  I would rather a guy sitting on the couch smoking a joint, than a robber sticking me up on the street.

Let’s face it, the city of Chicago is trying every way possible to generate revenue.  Tickets going to be given for anything possible, this new law will probably pass.  More cameras means tickets…higher fees mean more revenue…raise the parking meters….what else, oh yeah a ticket for smoking pot!

What do you think?  Should they reduce the penalty or would this make things worse?  Post your comments.

Everyone knows that Samuel L. Jackson is one of the best actors out there.  But to some peoples surprise, he is also the top grossing movie actor around.  His films have generated a whopping $7.5 billion in revenue to-date.  Not that he gets a huge cut of that cash, but he is doing pretty darn good!  In your face Tom Cruise!

Well, we know it is not just luck with Samuel L., ask anyone what they think about him and it is ALL GOOD!  He will go down as a legend and one for the record books.   Let’s hope he makes movies until he 100 years old!  He is a bad mother….shut your mouth!

2011: TOP FIVE RUDEST CITIES IN AMERICA, CHICAGO’S NOT ONE OF THEM!

The top rudest cities in America was announced by Travel & Leisure and the friendly mid-west city of Chicago was not on the list!  That’s because most residents of the windy city are extremely nice, especially to out-of-towner’s.  This fact is more clear during summer months when the sun is shining and everyone is happy to be rid of the cold!

Now winter may be a different story, so they must have taken the survey in the spring or summer!

TOPPING THE LIST…

#1 – L.A. – Which is no surprise to me, their plastic smiles never fooled me!

#2-New York - Definitely no shock at all!  I missed my flight there once and thought the lady behind the counter would step around and beat me down!

#3-Philadelphia -  Well, a bit surprising.  They were actually quite nice to me when I visited years ago.  But wait, I was in my twenties and still cute so everyone was nice back then!

#4- Miami - HUGE SURPRISE!  With all that sun, beautiful scenery and incredible music, they truly have NO excuse!

#5-Washington, D.C.-No need for comment.  Who mainly lives there?  Well, I am sure you can guess!

Now if you are from any of these cities, you can redeem yourself by posting a NICE comment on my blog:).

(VIDEO) DRUNK MISSOURI MOM DENIES POLICE ACCESS TO BOYS; WHERE IS 10-MONTH OLD BABY LISA?

The Missouri parents of missing 10-month-old baby, Lisa Irwin or “Pumpkin Pie” seem to have lots of stories to tell.  First the mother, 25-year-old  Deborah Bradley, said she was so drunk she did not know how her baby disappered from her crib.  Now she and spouse Jeremy Irwin, 29, say their phone was stolen and they could not make calls, but this is allegedly untrue.  Reports suggest phone records show calls were received by them around this time and additional calls were allegedly made using “stolen” cell phones.

To make matters worse, in recent weeks they have denied police investigators access to their 5 and 8 year old children who could help in the search.  Only days after their babies disappearance, they allowed child specialists to interview the boys but now they forbid them to speak to the children.  They had originally set a meeting for the kids to speak with police authorities and provide DNA samples, but they abruptly changed their mind and sent the message through their attorney.

The biggest question is…if their infant is missing due to the worst parental neglect EVER; getting too drunk to care for your kids…where is Social Services?  It is amazing to see the kids still in their care, when they clearly appear to be unfit parents.  Not to judge but…people have gotten their kids removed for much less, do they have connections or what?  Talk about an injustice!

Where is baby Lisa?  Let’s hope she is somewhere safe, but all the signs are unfortunately pointing elsewhere.  Tragic…Everyone else seems to be helping in the search, but apparently NOT the parents?

(VIDEO) 10/26/11: EX-GOVERNOR ROD BLAGOJEVICH LAW LICENSE SUSPENDED; PENSION FROZEN

Illinois ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich had a very bad week.  First he heard that an emergency meeting was called to discuss the possibility of him losing his pension. The State pension board went on to say his request would be frozen.  Then today, he received news that his law license has been suspended.  What a waste…you study hard and long to pass the bar exam and for this to happen!  But that’s what comes after you are convicted of a felony.

And all this terrible news comes just months after being convicted of public corruption, including the sale of Barack Obama’s Senate seat.

Well, at least there was one ray of light…Patti Blagojevich landed a new job!  It looks like she may need to be the bread-winner in the family for a while. But don’t get too excited, skeptics question if it truly is a new gig, since it is registered to the home they recently put on the market.

Let’s hope other corrupt Politicians (not that I’m saying he is, since he has professed his innocence) take notes on where they may end up if caught.   But I guess that is wishful thinking, they seem to keep making the same mistakes.  Remember Blago did replace Ryan and we all know how that ended up…oh well.

But wait…Blago said “I am  innocent!” over and over again, so maybe they are ALL wrong for what they are doing to the poor guy.  Hummmmmm?

You have to watch above video once more, it is interesting to hear him talk about Rahm Emanuel now that he is Chicago’s Mayor.

(RECAP VIDEO) 10/26/11: WORLD SERIES CANCELED TONIGHT, MOVES TO THURSDAY DUE TO WEATHER, GAME 6

The weather has caused the World Series game 6 to be moved to Thursday at 7:05pm.  Looks like the Texas Rangers and Cardinals will have to wait to duke it out.

If the game goes to round 7, it will be played Friday night in St. Louis.  Darn…where was this bad weather when they canceled The X Factor due to baseball?  That would have been a better night for postponing a game!

Maybe they will replace the World Series with The X Factor?  And canceled for rain…seriously?  The Chicago Bears would play during a storm…blizzard…freezing temps…or tornado!  Football is better:).

UPDATE 10/26/11 @9PM – And it didn’t even rain…need I say more?

EX-GOVERNOR BLAGO LAW LICENSE SUSPENDED!

10/26/11: CASEY ANTHONY JURORS ADDRESSES LEAKED VIA TWITTER; DEATH THREATS

The Casey Anthony trial has angered many around the world.  First the jurors began receiving death threats and now the address of each juror has been leaked.  According to reports they were Tweeted out for the world to see.  They are now receiving unwanted attention and fear for their lives.

This lack of protection for jurors is causing a lot of discussion.  Should there be new laws implemented to offer more security for the jury?  If they are doing their obligation to serve, don’t they deserve more protection?

With the heightened amount of social media in our country, is it time to update the rules for protecting their  identity?  What do you think?

(VIDEO) 10/25/11: THE X FACTOR USA JUDGES FEUD; SIMON ON THE DEFENSE

Tonight on The X Factor the judges had very harsh words for each other.  But it seems Simon was on the “hot seat” for the majority of the evening.  When he criticized the mentoring of Paula and Nicole they lashed out and gave it right back.

Even the typically mild-mannered L.A. Reid joined in, giving Simon the best bash of the night, telling him “You must be really rich, because 5 million dollars does not mean much to you”.  This came after he disagreed with Simon’s picks for the live show.

Simon  looked visably upset with his hand-picked judges.  He went on to tell them “they never liked Simone or Tiah” so of course they would not give them praise.  But in the end, he basically can dish it out, but cannot take it.  He clearly is filthy rich and used to getting his way at all times.  Well not tonight, he got to see their mean streaks and had to eat crow.  Do you know what that means Simon?

It was good to see someone beat him down for once.  Simon may want to watch this video to learn proper etiquette for critiques.  He may be paying them…but they have contracts.  Go judges!
