Killer Whale Show to Resume this Weekend at SeaWorld in Orlando

Okay, this story doesn't have much to do with entertainment news, but it really interests me. Partly because Orca whales scare me to death and also, why is everyone surprised a KILLER whale actually killed someone?

After Wednesday's death of a SeaWorld trainer by one of the park's whales, SeaWorld has decided to resume the show this weekend. The park also said they will keep Tilikum (the whale who killed the trainer) in the shows as well. The park's spokesperson says trainers will NOT be getting into the water with the whale.

Um....wasn't Dawn Brancheau NOT in the water when Tilikum decided he wanted to rough house with her?

Also, this whale has been involved in TWO other deaths of humans! He should serve a prison sentence or, if he were in California, be given the three strikes law!

What did these trainers expect anyway? Supposedly Tilikum is bigger than a normal Killer Whale.

In other reports SeaWorld has said the whale is a huge part in their breeding system. He's father a few whales in the park and has about three female companions.

Sounds like this whale's quite the pimp!

Some celebrities have taken to their Twitter accounts to voice their opinion on the situation.My favorite has got to be Chad Ochochino's take on the matter.

Ochocinco tweeted:

OGOchoCinco The people at SEA WORLD need to fire the whale and let that mothasucka see what it likes to feed himself from now on #justsaying

OGOchoCinco RT @ATLNightmare: @OGOchoCinco don't hate, that whale tryina deal wit the recession tuna prices is sky rocketing.

OGOchoCinco Have y'all seen the picture of this KILLER WHALE, he's 3 times the normal size of a killer whale,what the hell they been feeding him

In love with "Rude Boy"

I don't know why various entertainment news sources say Rihanna's label is disappointed with her album sales for Rated R because I'm really loving her singles! Well, what I mean to say is, I don't know why people aren't buying it.

Okay, so I haven't purchased the album YET, but these singles are making me want to. So, maybe I'll make the trip to Target to pick it up.

I really love Rihanna's new song "Rude Boy" and the video? Well, it's alright. It has sort of has an early -90's hip-hop-African-Island-thing going on. Part of me thinks it's the artist paying homage to her roots in Barbados. I only say Africa, because the color-scheme looks like Africa's flag colors.
But here's the video,

What do you think?

Gatorade DROPS Tiger!

Just because you apologized doesn't make it right, Mr. Woods!

                         Guess he'll be sticking to Powerade.

The Associated Press reports, "A representative for the drink, sold by PepsiCo Inc., confirmed

late Friday that it had ended its relationship with the golfer, who made a lengthy public apology last week for his infidelities. 'We no longer see a role for Tiger in our marketing efforts and have ended our relationship,' a Gatorade spokeswoman said. 'We wish him all the best.'The spokeswoman said Gatorade would continue its relationship with the Tiger Woods Foundation."

Surprise, Surprise. It was only a matter of time before the sport-drink heavy would pull the gold-superstar.

It's kind of sad actually, this guy had EVERYTHING and he lost it on a couple (or dare a say many) hussies.

I'm sure somewhere in Florida, Elin's chuckling a little bit.

Simon Cowell Engaged!

The American Idol judge is off the market!

Sorry ladies! Well, the ladies who actually thought Simon Cowell was sexy.

Cowell, 50, is engaged to  makeup artist Mezhgan Hussainy, 36.

They do make a really cute couple!

The New York Daily News says "the Afghan-born Hussainy's announcement — which came with a sparkly engagement ring — put an end to rumors swirling that Cowell was maybe, possibly, perhaps about to get hitched."

Congratulations Simon and Mezhgan!

I can't wait to see the wedding pictures when this finally happens!

Koenig's Body Found

Such sad news.

Growing Pains actor Andrew Koenig was found dead Thursday of an apparent suicide.

                                              *Picture Found on
Reports say his body was found at Vancouver's famous, Stanley Park. Supposedly, the park was one of Koenig's favorite places to visit.

The San Francisco Chronicle says "They found Koenig's body in a heavily wooded area 100 feet of what is called The Bridal Path. It could not be seen from walking along a path."

My thoughts and prayers are with the Koenig family.

R.I.P. Boner!

I think I'm going to have to watch an episode of Growing Pains now.

Sidenote: Television stations always play re-runs of Full House and Family Matters, why don't they ever play Growing Pains?
Maybe now isn't the time to ask that question....

Where's Boner (from "Growing Pains")?

Actor Andrew Koenig who most famously played Richard "Boner"Stabone in the sitcom Growing Pains is missing.

Reports say Koenig was visiting friends in Vancouver, British Columbia, when he went missing about ten days ago. The search for Koenig began when he didn't catch his flight from Vancouver on Feb. 16th.

The says, "Vancouver police Constable Tim Fanning says there has been no activity on Koenig's cell phone or bank records since Feb. 16. Fanning says Vancouver's 1,000-acre, thickly forested Stanley Park, which Koenig loved, has been searched thoroughly."

Hopefully, he's safe and sound! Sending positive thoughts to the family.

Koenig's father, Walter, famously played Pavel Chekov on the original “Star Trek”.

Mr. Woods...FINALLY breaks his silence in a media briefing today. Stations around the country took Tiger's speech LIVE today. Something like that usually happens for the President, but not in cases like the Tiger Woods Infidelity Drama.

It didn't really seem like a sincere apology because it seemed like he kept looking down at his speech every five seconds.

                                                                **Photo from

Among the many things Woods says in his"press conference", Woods made it a point in the very beginning to express what this ordeal has done with his family.

"I know people want to find out how I could be so selfish and so foolish. People want to know how I could have done these things to my wife Elin and to my children. And while I have always tried to be a private person, there are some things I want to say. Elin and I have started the process of discussing the damage caused by my behavior. As Elin pointed out to me, my real apology to her will not come in the form of words. It will come from my behavior over time. We have a lot to discuss however, what we say to each other will remain between the two of us."

Well, DUH Tiger!

He laters says:

"I ran straight through the boundaries that a married couple should live by. I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to. I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all of the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn't have to go far to find them."

He then goes on to say how Buddhism is helping him get through this tough time and how he doesn't know when his return from golf may be.

This comes days after one of Tiger's mistresses says she got pregnant TWICE with Tiger.

Who would have thought, clean-cut Tiger would have been such a womanizer?

I guess we'll have to sit back and watch what happens next.

Lil' Wayne, Drake and Birdman: Dream Team

I love Cash Money, and I just recently saw this on MTV's all music video channel (because the original MTV barely plays music videos), and I fell in love with this song.

**Photo from
4 My Town (Play Ball)- Birdman, Lil' Wayne and Drake

I don't know what it is about these three, but it seems like everytime one of them makes a's a guranteed hit!

Tiga Tiga Woods, Ya'll!

Well, it's about time Mr. Tiger Woods comes out from hiding!

News headlines are swirling that Woods will make his first public appearance since the drama that went down in Florida back in November.

Wonder if it took that long for his face to heal?

The only downside is, this will NOT be a press conference and the golf star will not be taking any media questions.

*Surprise, Surprise*

Woods will speak at 9 a.m. PST on  Friday from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home of the PGA Tour.

Well, I'm sure we can't all wait to hear what THIS guy has to say!

I  may not be a P.R. pro, but in my intro to Public Relations class in college we were taught that if you were someone who had a lot to lose, the best thing to do was to admit your mistakes from the beginning. Wonder if that rings true for this little situation.

If anything, we should have known Tiger was a kind of a douche...he did do the Jersey Shore "fist pump" rather well!


Getting Feisty Over Twitter!

Father of the Decade, Jon Gosselin's, ex-girlfriend decided to take to Twitter today to ease her frustrations about her ex.

hAiLeYgLaSsMaN1: Its ok for a man to dish on women but if a women says the truth about a man its a no,no. PLEASE honey theres no double standards in my book.

hAiLeYgLaSsMaN1: Just like Pamela Anderson has huge boobs, Jon Gosselin has a tiny penis. Period the end. Theres no argument when its a fact.

Yikes! I think we all could have figured that one out BEFORE! Is this girl NOT surprised the father of eight turned out to be a huge disappointment? I mean, he did kind of leave Kate high and dry.

Anyways, this comment comes days after her interview with Steppin' Out magazine, where she said "he's so small, I didn't think he would cheat on me". "He's hung like a nine-year-old boy," she says. "I'm serious. This is true," she adds, even claiming he measures up to "3 inches."

Too bad some ladies aren't taking Glassman's warning too seriously.

Gosselin is still acting like the fake bachelor he is. Rumor has it, he's seeing  25- year old Morgan Christie whom he met while snowboarding in Utah.

I understand it's hard to find a decent guy, but c'mon ladies.

Jon Gosselin?!

You might as well just try-out for Season 3 of For the Love of Ray-J, because during the reunion show we know there's bound to be another one!

It's disgusting how some women are so pathetic to get their 15 minutes of fame.

Fist Pumpin' Like Champs in...Miami Beach?

Could the cast of the Jersey Shore's next stop be Miami Beach?

The Miami Herald reports that location scouts have been checking out the area to see if the city can handle, Pauly D., Snookie, J-Wow, The Situation, Sammi-Sweetheart, Ronnie and Vinny.

I really think Ronnie and Vinny need to get on the nickname bandwagon!

And I'm hoping Angelina isn't in this season at all, because she basically was a waste of time. I'm glad I found a cast photo WITHOUT her in it!

It seems like MTV has been a little hush-hush about it, but rumors are swirling that the network may forgo having the cast stay in a beach house and just check-in to a hotel.

I'm so jealous! How fabulous would that be?

Though I did love watching the Jersey Shore and I have a liking for the Jersey-style accent, I'm a little leary about a second season. Of course, the promotions will be promising us more fist-pumping, fighting and drama.

But, could season 2 really compete with season 1?

I wouldn't mind seeing another cast member getting punched in the face!

I'm kidding!!!

I just hope the next season's drama won't be so over -the-top and  fake that I wouldn't want to watch anymore.

Like the last season of The Hills.


I'm crossing my fingers!

R.I.P. Lee Alexander McQueen CBE

Since New York's Fashion Week is in full-swing, I'm sure many fashionistas can't forget that a familiar face won't be there this year.

Mr. Alexander McQueen.
 *This picture is from the US Magazine website.

It's so tragic that such a talented individual passed away just a few days ago at just 40 years old.

Twitter and facebook statuses were all a buzz when news of the designer passing hit. Reports say that McQueen was struggling with the recent death of his mother. Joyce.

How sad. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like to lose a parent. Poor guy.

With the fashion world mourning his death, it seems the drama is , of course, coming out.

McQueen's ex-George Forsythe tells the London Daily Mail that the fashion world should stop crying about McQueen's death because "the fashion world is the loneliest place on the face of the planet. It's a shallow world full of party people and party friends and Lee knew that."

I guess that's true, but isn't that true with all celebs?

The New York Daily News has an article out saying stylist, Rachel Zoe has been distraught over McQueen's death by failing to appear at the Project Runway show.

I understand being upset, but it seems like Zoe is kind of being a Drama Queen. Let's hope she's not too upset over McQueen's passing that she's not eating.

Oh, wait. She does that already.

Baby, Are you Down, Down, Down, Down Down? (I know I am!)

Bloggers, I think I'm in love.

With whom, you ask?

Oh, just R&B sensation Jay Sean! May I say the first thing that attracted me to Sean was the fact that he's Punjabi-India, as am I. So, it was my natural instinct to have a huge sense of Desi pride. (DESI definition for those who don't know is used when referring to culture or ethnic background, the term includes any person of South Asian heritage with ancestry from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Maldives and Sri Lanka).

Jay was born, Kamaljit Singh Jhooti in Hounslow, West London, England. According to WikiPedia: "For his music career, he chose the stage name Jay Sean; "Jay" was the nickname his friends knew him as (derived from his previous stage name "Nicky J"), while "Sean" is derived from "Shaan"—a nickname he was called at home by his grandmother—which means "shining star" or "pride" in Punjabi."

I personally have never used the Punjabi word "Shaan", in my life so I have no idea if that's really an accurate translation.

Anways, besides automatically loving Sean because he's Indian, I also liked that he signed with Cash Money (note: my previous blogs about Weezy). Because I do love me some Weezy F. Baby!

I even told my parents that they should contact Sean's parents. Maybe we could have some sort of marriage arrangement? LOL! C'mon! He hangs out with Birdman and Lil' Wayne!

I recently got a hold of his album All or Nothing and I was a little skepitcal because I thought maybe he'd be a one-hit-wonder, but I was definitely wrong. The album is great!

The songs I really like, besides the single Down and Do You Remember? Are:
-Ride It
-All or Nothing
- Do You
- War
-Lights Off
-Stuck in the Middle
- If I Ain't Got You

I know that's basically the whole album, but it just goes to show you how good it is! I did notice many of his songs were about losing the girl he loved. Either because he screwed up or she found another man. I'd personally would like to believe the latter.

This makes me wonder who was the little hussy that did Jay Sean wrong?

Jay! I'm available if you need a shoulder to cry on!!

Besides the album, I did come across this interview Sean was promoting on Twitter that he did with the U.K Sunday Times and it made me love him more.

                                                      Check it Out!

Hopefully you guys will love him as much as I do!

He'd "Rather Be Pushing Flowers...Than to be in the Pen Sharing Showers...."

A famous line from Weezy's 2008 hit "A Mili".

It's funny that Mr. Dwayne Carter will soon enough be in jail. But don't cry yet!

Lil' Wayne was supposed to be sentenced today in a weapons case was postponed until March 2nd so he could have dental surgery. Whew, that was a close one!

I guess you got to do what you got to do to stay out of the big house!

Weezy F. Baby said it best in "How You Like Me Now" when he said:
        "I got a grill, I don't got to get my tooth fixed . The tooth fairy would retire if I lose it."

Supposedly Wayne was going to have this dental work done on Friday, but couldn't. So, today was the day! His lawyer didn't disclose what the dental work was, but said "it is a medical situation that, like (it would for) any of us has to be addressed.

That sounds like a filling to me! Or, maybe a routine cleaning?

Wayne's plea deal calls for a one year term in a city jail, but it could be reduced to 8 months if he behaves.
People Magazine says "he pleaded guilty in October to a charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon, admitting he illegally had a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun on his tour bus in July 2007. Police found the weapon when they stopped the bus after a Manhattan concert. trouble isn't over for him....

Wayne is set to go to trial towards the end of March on  felony drug possession and weapons charges in Yuma County, AZ. On January 2008 he was arrested at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint, where
authorities say they found cocaine, Ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus.

Oh dear!

Well, we know this experience (Or shall I say these experiences) will give Weezy more material when he becomes a free man! I'm sure we could all look forward to that album!

Let's Talk About Pep

Salt-N- Pepa's Sandy "Pepa" Denton has a new show on Vh1 and this time it's all about her. In late 2007 Salt-N-Pepa made an attempt to have their own reality show, but it was more than obvious they were two different people. Salt preferred to stay at home with her husband and children, while Pep preferred partying until the wee hours of the morning.

Well, in "Let's Talk About Pep" we get to watch Pep and three of her girlfriends try to find love in good ol' New York, New York! One of Pep's friends is Joumana Kidd, Jason Kidd's ex-wife. Pictured on the far left.

I was shocked Joumana would be on the show considering her tulmultous marriage to Kidd.

Anyways, this show is pretty entertaining. In one episode, Pep consults with a love and advice columnist from Essence Magazine along with her friend Kittie. Pictured on the far right. The columnist pushes Pep to go out of her element and meet "professional men" at a Manhattan Happy Hour, instead of meeting the typical rappers or athletes at the club.

The catch is, Pep must approach these men herself.

The entire time Pep feels uncomfortable because she's not used to having to approach men, she's used to them approaching her. I so feel you, girl!

So will Pepa find love? I hope so!

But if anything, this is like 2010's version of Sex and the City. Well...until the actual Sex & The City movie sequel comes out in May.

Super Bowl XLIV: Kim Kardashian Beats Kendra "K-Dub" Baskett.

Ahh, to be living in New Orleans right now. It must be some party!

I may say I am really happy the Saints won. I love a good underdog story and the "anything is possible" mentality.

But for those of you who aren't addicted to E! like I am, you may have missed that two of the channel's biggest reality stars had close ties to the Super Bowl. Kendra and Kim Kardashian. If you didn't know, Kendra is no longer with Hugh Hefner and moved on to marry Hank Baskett who now plays for the Colts. As for Kim Kardashian, she is dating (for now) Saints' player, Reggie Bush. Who is so precious!

                       Check out this cute ad for St. Judes with Reggie Bush

Many online publications are speculating Baskett's fumble may have caused the Saints to come back in the second half.

Poor Hank, it's not like Kendra is a dummy when it comes to sports. I wonder if she's upset at his mistake or not.

So here's for Team Kardashian this time! It seems like the Kardashians could be good luck charms when it comes to athletes. Khloe is married to Lamar Odom is a Laker and his team won the 2009 NBA Championship. Now, if Kourtney would just get rid of Scott and marry a baseball player....he may go on to win the World Series!
