The Enquirer has a photo of John McCain's wife passionately kissing a man who doesn't look anything like John McCain.
I really feel bad for the guy. First he loses the presidential election, and now he's lost his wife to a hunky younger man.
Apparently, this is not news to certain members of the media. The Enquirer has known about Cindy's other man for some time now. But I guess they exercised caution and restraint until after the election.
We all know First daughters Malia and Sasha Obama are big Hannah Montana fans. So when the Disney Channel people extended an invite to the First daughters to visit the set or maybe make cameos in the show, the girls were ecstatic.
The cable network said in a statement, "We’re pleased that Malia and Sasha are fans and, as long as their parents say it’s okay, they are invited to the set of Hannah Montana, and all Disney Channel shows, for a guest role or a visit, anytime." Inviting the pair to make a cameo, Cyrus’ father Billy Ray told Access Hollywood, "They probably will. (Source)
But the elation didn't last long: Obama coolly turned the invitation down. Explaining his decision to keep his daughters out of the limelight, Obama told Good Morning America, "Generally, what makes them so charming is the fact that they’re not spending a lot of time worrying about TV cameras or politics, and we want to keep it that way."
Symptoms can be confused with other less life-threatening illnesses and usually don't present until after the cancer is in its advanced stages. For example, I had a friend in nursing school who was very promiscuous. Despite rules forbidding visitors in the dorms after 9 PM, this sistah always found a way to sneak men into her dorm room at night.
The next morning in class, she regaled us with graphic details of her nightly romps with men. In our final year, her stories took on an ominous tone. She complained of sharp pain during sex, spotting and vague lower back pain. She attributed her heavy menstrual bleeding to her fibroids.
In our final year, she was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer, and she passed away a few months after we graduated.
She was only 21-years-old.
Ovarian cancer is very difficult to diagnose in its early stages because there are usually no symptoms. Ovarian cancer is almost always difficult to treat once diagnosed.
94% of women diagnosed early live longer than five years, according to the American Cancer Society.

This track titled "Drum Life" with its heavy emphasis on percussion, leaves a lot to be desired especially if you're a Brandy fan like I am.
"Drum Life" isn't on Brandy's upcoming fifth studio album "Human" produced by Timbaland.
Other producers on the project include Tim & Bob, Rockwilder, Rodney Jerkins, B. Cox, Keri Hilson (who can't write a hit for herself), Kerry Brothers, and Missy Elliott. Look for it on December 9 in stores everywhere.
Thanks to loyal reader Patricia B for exposing Beyonce's thievery again!
It appears that Sasha Fake stole not only her motorcycle corset from George Michael's "Too Funky" video, but she also stole her Terminator glove from the video too!
I remember receiving a press release from some marketing company explaining how Beyonce's exo-skeletal glove concept came about.
There was no mention of George Michael's video in that press release!
Thanks to my loyal readers for their tireless efforts in unmasking Beyonce's shams and exposing her as a fraud.

Subject: About This Sasha Fierce Foolishness!!!
Dear Sandra Rose:
I'm an avid reader of your blog and I LOVE it! I wanted to make you aware of Beyonce's latest theft in reference to her Sony promo shoot for her Sasha Fierce foolishness!
One of your readers commented in the "Beyonce Covers Seventeen Magazine" blog post: *"I'm trying to recall WHO had the motorcycle bustier in the 80's on a magazine cover … I wanna say Grace Jones .. but TRUST me when I tell you it was NOT Beyonce who donned it first … "*
Do you remember the video by George Michael called "Too Funky?" It show cased supermodels Tyra Banks, Emma, Linda Evangelista and the video came out in 1992. It featured the fashions of the legendary iconic designer Thierry Mugler. Model Emma had the motorcycle corset on. Not only that, if you continue watching the video you will see the exo-skeletal glove that Beyonce
is now rocking as her own. That shot is around the 2:13 mark.
Thanks to publicist Saptosa Foster for sending over these pics from last night's meet & greet with R&B singer Case.
Last night, R&B singer Case hosted a Meet & Greet with the media in Atlanta at Straits Restaurant (co-owned by Ludacris). Journalists and fans listened to his new album, The Rose Experience, which is in stores Feb. 10, 2009.
Here's the video for Case's new single "Lovely." His two adorable daughters are featured in the video.
Thanks to ICEDDOTCOM for sending over this video link which is supposedly a "sneak peak" at a "new" reality show featuring Dwight Eubanks, the flamboyant hair dresser and owner of The Purple Door Salon in Atlanta.
Dwight is best known for dishing advice to NeNe on Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta.
This video was posted up on YouTube way back in July. It is now November and we have not heard a peep about this show, meaning the show wasn't picked up by any of the major cable networks.
I can see why after watching this video.
There's something to be said for subtlety. If you know you're fabulous, you really don't have to go that extra mile to prove it. Others around you will see it and know it with very little effort on your part.
Sony released more Sasha Fierce promos. You would think that at some point Sony got the message that this Sasha Fierce marketing scheme is not working for them. Even the Bey Stans aren't feeling it. The album I Am... Sasha Fierce, drops next week I think.
I sort of understand where this video is going, but because of all the negative stereotyping of black men by a black man, I guess the message was lost on me.
The video was produced by Marc Clark Productions, of www.nowhitetees.com which plans to sell "A Black Man Stole My Vote" t-shirts as a tribute to Obama. The t-shirts will be available at the end of this year according to his press release:
A Black Man Stole My...Vote is simultaneously a satire of racial stereotypes in the American media and a tribute to Barack Obamas historic achievement. While media images of black men committing crimes (and being wrongly accused of them) is common in the American cultural landscape, this years election has presented the country with the first instance where a black man has truly captivated tens of millions of American voters from all walks of life, forcing them to vote for him not through intimidation or violence, but through eloquence, commitment, vision, and talent.
Some of you may have heard this track already. It's titled "Another Life" and it's off Bobby Valentino's upcoming CD The Rebirth on Blu Kolla Dreams/EMI. "Another Life" is a mellow, mid tempo track that compliments Bobby's falsetto vocals well.
As you know, Bobby V and DTP Records parted ways last year. But according to Bobby, there are no hard feelings.
Bobby V has returned to the music scene in a big way with a collabo hit "Mrs. Officer" on Lil' Wayne's multi-platinum Carter III album. Bobby V will be in Atlanta promoting his upcoming CD with interviews and phoners all this week.
We can't wait to hear what else Bobby V has in store for us!
Loyal reader Charles (yes, that Charles) emailed SR.com to remind us to recognize the armed forces on Veterans Day. I spotted this video on another blog yesterday and it took me 30 minutes to find it again. It's a silent drill exercise by the USMC in France. Their precision is awesome. Happy Veterans Day to Charles and those American soldiers who unselfishly serve to protect our Democracy.
Lindsay Lohan, who is a big Obama supporter, recently sat down with Maria Menounos of Access Hollywood. When Maria asked her thoughts on the election, Lindsay said, "It’s an amazing feeling. It’s our first, you know, colored president."
Remember now, Lindsay is a big Obama supporter who rallied other celebrities to support him. She understands that Obama is not black -- he is bi-racial or mixed. Obama acknowledged that fact by referring to himself as a 'mutt' during a recent press conference.
Thanks to loyal reader SpaceyG for sending over these pics! I first noticed the British club kids dressing this way awhile back. But now it seems the style has crossed the Atlantic and found its way to urban centers of NYC and Atlanta.
I like this look! It's definitely a welcome departure from the sagging pants and white tees favored by our young men. Steampunk is a phrase coined by K.W. Jeter to describe sc-fi novels with Victorian era endings. The term spread from literature to objets d'art, and now to fashion:
Steampunk is, most simply defined by one enthusiast, as 'the intersection of technology and romance.' A more encompassing description according to Ruth LaFurla of The New York Times, states it is "a subculture that is the aesthetic expression of a time-traveling fantasy world, one that embraces music, film, design and now fashion, all inspired by the extravagantly inventive age of dirigibles and steam locomotives, brass diving bells and jar-shaped protosubmarines." (Source)
Y'all know if Jay Z adopts this style your man will too. Rapper Dre 3K has already incorporated this look into his new clothing line. So, ladies can you see your men rocking the new Steampunk style?
The news that Wendy Williams sidekick Charlamagne Tha God was fired last week caused a stir in NYC where Wendy's show is based. Wendy and Charlamagne sat down with MY9 News in NY to talk about the personnel changes at WBLS which included firing Nicole Spence, the staffer who settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with the station and Wendy's husband Kevin.
Barack Obama and his advisors are crafting plans to close the Guantanamo Bay prison and bring the Iraqi terrorists to the U.S. for open trials.
The plans would call for the creation of a new legal system to handle the classified information. A new legal system would of course cost a ton of money. Guess where the money is going to come from?
You may recall that some of the 250 detainees at Gitmo were captured in Iraq on the battlefield and others were arrested for committing crimes against America following September 11.
Bush imprisoned these terrorists in Cuba for a reason: if tried on American soil, they are entitled to the same constitutional rights as Americans who are tried in the U.S. Justice system.
Under Obama's plan, some detainees would be released immediately in America since no other country wants them, while others would be tried in U.S. courts, where they would receive constitutional rights.
Leave it to good ol' Obama to protect the interests of terrorists and give them safe haven while thousands of brothers languish right here in American prisons for crimes they didn't commit.
A transsexual who filed a lawsuit against the Memphis police after a February beating at the hands of an officer, was found shot to death in North Memphis late Sunday.
Duanna Johnson, 43, was shot in the head and died at the scene. In June, she offered to settle the lawsuit against the city of Memphis and the Memphis Police Department, but the parties could not reach an agreement.
According to online reports, one of Johnson's attorney's say the lawsuit will continue as planned.
Johnson was beaten in February in the booking area at 201 Poplar after an arrest on a prostitution charge.
Memphis police officers Bridges McRae and James Swain were fired after the incident, which became public when Johnson's attorneys released a video of the beating to local media.
The video went viral and the story received national attention.
A loyal reader who hosts a radio show in Memphis, emailed SR.com this morning to say he received a voicemail message from a witness at the scene who stated Johnson was murdered by Memphis police -- not three men as had been reported.
He plans to play the message on his radio show later today in Memphis.
By now you've all heard the mainstream media uproar over "leaked" insider information regarding Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
According to a McCain insider, Palin allegedly didn't know Africa was a continent and, among other transgressions, she supposedly came to the door of her hotel room in a bathrobe while campaigning as VP.
According to MSNBC and other media outlets, a McCain "campaign advisor" came forward to reveal that he was the source who leaked the scurrilous Palin information to Chris Cameron at FOX News.
Cameron, FOX, MSNBC and others were so caught up in an orgasmic frenzy that they forgot one simple tenet of their profession: to know their source.
As it turns out, the McCain "campaign advisor" -- one Martin Eisenstadt -- never worked for the McCain campaign and may not even exist! The leaked information from the McCain camp insider was apparently all a hoax!
These smug, journalistic purveyors of gossip who ran wild with this story, are left licking crow off their collective faces while struggling to fathom how they were so easily duped by this elaborate hoax.
In desperation, Beyonce's peeps have leaked another track from the dismal I Am... Sasha Fierce album which drops next week, I think.
This track is titled "Smash Into You," and yes, it's another bonus track from the 2nd disc. I didn't listen to it, because I'm sure it's a yawner like the other tracks I've already heard.
Meanwhile, VIBE.com posted 6 tracks from Beyonce's upcoming double album I Am... Sasha Fierce, and asked readers to respond with reviews.
Only 2 readers even bothered to respond (one reader responded twice). Here's what they said:
WOW! This is really Bad! Beyonce has yet to make the Cd worthy of her Talents. She needs to get with Shek'spere or Ryan Leslie and let them do the whole cd or split half. And what with the Hand clap beat songs: Single Ladies, Upgrade You, Freakum dress . It isnt like these are huge hits for her either. Beyonce is coasting on her image and style but how long will she keep making spotty cd's?

The tracks you've posted are the best from the album with the exception of "Brokenhearted Girl", which is by far the best. Beyonce’s alter ego may be something of a fierce nature, but this album certainly is not. I think the downfall is primarily the content. Her music hasn’t evolved much, and therefore we get an album of stale content and failed attempts at originality. It appears that Beyonce hasn’t really taken time to experience new things or embrace new perspectives to feed her songwriting energy. A hiatus could be just what the doctor ordered for Beyonce.

Wake up sleepy heads! Rihanna and her BFF Chris Brown were spotted wiping the cold out of their eyes after landing in Perth, Australia for a concert tonight. They'd better get plenty of sleep because I hear the concert is three hours long! I know Rihanna can handle the stretch, but I don't know if Chris has the stamina. (Source)
Keyshia Cole looks beautiful on the cover of Billboard. She talks about her upcoming album which really doesn't need any promotion since she already has a built-in fan base who will buy anything she puts out. KeyCo will go plat because she's proven herself as an artist. She has a great ear for music just as Tupac did and she knows how to pick hits. There's a duet on her album with fellow Atlantan Monica titled "Trust" and we can't wait to hear it! The third season of Keyshia's wildly popular reality series, “The Way It Is” premieres tonight at 10 PM. But you already knew that from all the ads on every blog.
Cassie and Lauren London pose scantily for Sean Jean underwear? I really can't tell what they're advertising in these pics since this is pretty much how they look all the time. More pics.
A stern looking Barack Obama arrived at the White House today for his official tour of the living quarters that he and his family will occupy for at least the next four years.
Amid talk of Nancy Pelosi bailing out the auto industry with more of our tax dollars, Obama's mouthpiece Valerie Jarrett reminded us that he will not be president until January 20, at which time he will begin to "rule day one." Yes, she said "rule."
Even Before Barack Obama, I Already Knew I Could
I found this on another blog. I find it interesting that not everybody needed Barack Obama to tell them they could accomplish anything through hard work.
The media is all over Barack Obama for showing us what the "American Dream" means.
So... The American Dream means making shady connections, eliminating political opponents, being thoroughly unaccomplished, and then becoming president?
I didn't need Obama to tell me that "I can." In fact, all he's done is teach us that "we can" without any accomplishments whatsoever. READ MORE...
From the moment the bodies of Hudson's mother and brother were found shot to death in their home on Oct. 24, it seemed like an airtight case: Chicago police had a "person of interest" in custody later that same day, and they had witnesses who placed him at the scene the morning of the crime.
Additionally, police claimed to know the identity of another person of interest who may have been involved in the killings.
So what's the problem? Why has no one been charged with the murders almost 3 weeks later? Why is William Balfour, the person of interest, still sitting in jail on trumped up charges? And does he have an attorney who is looking out for his best interests?
The news out of Chicago this morning is that Balfour went before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board today who ruled that he "violated his parole" and should remain in state custody.
It seems Balfour's girlfriend (who probably heard his mother tell Nancy Grace that he had another girlfriend) testified that she saw him with a gun "similar to the murder weapon" that police found in a vacant lot.
How convenient that she would come up with the gun story just in time for the parole board hearing?
According to the Chicago Tribune, Balfour now admits that he was at the Hudson home that morning, and his girlfriend claims he told her he was involved in the killings.
Meanwhile, Balfour still has not been charged and no one else is in custody in the case.
I'm glad I don't live in Chicago with such a sorry police force that can't solve a high profile crime in 48 hours.
A Fayetteville, NC teacher says she regrets telling a student that her military dad would stay in Iraq "for another hundred years" if John McCain was elected president.
The student, Cathy Thompson, and her parents now say the teacher, Diantha Harris, 53, was only "messing around" as she always does with her students.
"I should not have said that," said a tearful Harris as she sat between Cathy and her parents during an interview with WRAL News on Saturday. Cathy Thompson said she didn't feel bullied by Harris, who claimed someone "doctored" the video before it hit the Internet.
Kanye West had to go in the worst way while attending a pre-MTV Europe Music Awards function over the weekend. Kanye reportedly answered the call of nature by relieving himself on his dressing floor.
In the medical field, when a person is observed relieving himself on the floor, he is thought to be experiencing a psychotic break. But in Kanye's world, that's business as usual:
Rap superstar Kanye West shocked his fellow celebrities backstage at a pre-MTV Europe Music Awards party in Liverpool, England on Wednesday (11/05) - when he reportedly relieved himself on the floor of his dressing room.
The Stronger hitmaker was in the city to perform and collect the Ultimate Urban prize at the MTV ceremony on Thursday.
But his alleged behavior at the star-studded bash the night before stunned pop duo The Ting Tings, who had to share his dressing room at the party, reports Britain's The Sun newspaper.
Drummer Jules De Martino says, "We ask for a lot of unusual things on our backstage rider but that ain't (sic) one of them!"(Source)
