Oscar winning actress Halle Berry appeared to be pregnant on the set of her Revlon photo shoot yesterday. After a month of speculation about Halle's frightening weight loss to near scarecrow proportions, Halle appears to be picking up weight again.

Despite the baby bump, mama is looking right in this dress! These pics should make Halle's many fans breathe a sigh of relief. And, if Halle is pregnant again, we hope it's a boy!

Barack Hussein Obama predictably called for a New World Order in his historic speech to the Muslims of the World earlier today at Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt.

Obama backed off from his usual custom of criticizing America on foreign soil, calling for a “common ground” and “a new beginning” with the Muslim world.

America's first half-black president couched his rhetoric in careful language, quoting twice from the Koran and once from the Holy Bible. But his message was clear: a New World Order with its balance of power centered in the Middle East is desirable and inevitable:

“Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail. So whatever we think of the past, we must not be prisoners of it. Our problems must be dealt with through partnership; progress must be shared.” [link]

Obama, who traveled to the Middle East without the First Lady, scored points with women's groups -- his most ardent supporters behind blacks -- when he recognized there were some "sources of tension" between the two cultures, including the continued oppression of women in some Muslim countries.

“I know there is debate about this issue. I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal, but I do believe that a woman who is denied an education is denied equality. And it is no coincidence that countries where women are well-educated are far more likely to be prosperous.”

And another applause line: “Our daughters can contribute just as much to society as our sons.” [link]

One day before Obama's speech in Cairo, former presidential candidate, Governor Mitt Romney appeared on Fox News' "Sean Hannity Show," calling Obama's constant pandering to the Mideast "troublesome."

Romney quoted Britain's paper, The Guardian, that said "this American president has been more critical of his own country while on foreign soil than any American president in history."

Barack Hussein Obama is among friends in Saudi Arabia. In this photo, Obama receives a modest gift from Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud during a bilateral meeting at the king's ranch in al-Janadriya in the outskirts of Riyadh today.

This is the same Saudi King who Obama bowed deeply to during their last meeting in Great Britain back in April.

It is against military protocol for the president of the United States to bow down to another world leader. Unless that world leader's money and power helped put him in the White House. Then that's different.

Oops, it appears I spoke too soon... what's this?

Rihanna was spotted floating, I mean strolling near Fred Segal in Santa Monica yesterday. The folks over at X17online.com don't like her street style. But we LOVE it!

Curiously, RiRi is wearing the same slightly baggy Hammer pants she wore on her trip back to the states from London on Monday. Only difference is she rolled the legs up. Maybe she thought we wouldn't notice?

Those futuristic shades are fly. By the way, Rihanna's hawt Alexander McQueen Pelle leather sandals can be yours for a cool $1200!

When NBC News anchor Brian Williams bowed to Barack Obama toward the end of a NBC documentary, I saw it as a sign of respect for one who holds the highest office in the land. Especially considering the fact that Williams knows Obama is Muslim.

By the way, why does everyone assume I have a problem with Muslims simply because I point out that Obama is one? When have I ever written a negative word about Muslims?

Wow, I just learned something new today. I didn't know that the U.S. was one of the largest Muslim countries in the world, did you?

This is according to Barack Hussein Obama, who sat down for several interviews before leaving for his mission trip to the Middle East:

As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.

In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” [link]

By the way, expect much bowing and scraping and anti-Americanism from Obama while he's in the Middle East.

Remember when girl groups wore clothes and could actually sing?

Remember when Jayne and Leon Kennedy were the original Jay Z and Beyonce?

Remember when you wanted to pinch Gary Coleman's cheeks?

Remember when Michael Jackson was still black?

Remember when we still cared what made OJ Simpson run?

Remember when professional athletes like Sugar Ray Leonard still married their high school sweethearts?

Remember when Mike Tyson was considered a sex symbol?

Though her flow is somewhat nice, I'm still not convinced that former video vixen-turned-rapper, Angel Lola Luv has what it takes to rock the mic right. Especially since this video clearly shows her lip syncing in a sound booth. Not cool.

The video description says Lola is freestyling. Someone doesn't know what freestyling means -- and I say that with love.

Actor Taylor Lautner is definitely the new IT boy in Hollywood. He has a hawt bod and high wattage smile that makes the Cougars swoon and the movie studios line up!

Some of you may know Taylor as Jacob Black in the profitable Twilight vampire flick. He also appeared in episodes of TV's Bernie Mac Show.

Every blog on earth posted these pics last night, I thought I would be remiss if I didn't do the same.

Another former Kool-aid drinker is reformed, and this time it's a member of the national media.

Universal Syndicated Press writer Tedd Rall, a former staunch supporter of Barack Hussein Obama, wrote a scathing article in the State Journal Register titled "Barack Obama is a monster."

Well, I wouldn't go that far. But I certainly understand Rall's frustrations with a president who is a pathological liar -- and he doesn't much care if you know it.

Rall wrote:

We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obama’s inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through. …

Obama is useless. Worse than that, he’s dangerous. Which is why, if he has any patriotism left after the thousands of meetings he has sat through with corporate contributors, blood-sucking lobbyists and corrupt politicians, he ought to step down now — before he drags us further into the abyss.

Rall continues:

“Obama is cute. He is charming. But there is something rotten inside him. Unlike the Republicans who backed George W. Bush, I won’t follow a terrible leader just because I voted for him. Obama has revealed himself. He is a monster, and he should remove himself from power.”
