One thing I've learned from experience as a nurse and working with drug addicts is they are extremely unpredictable and untrustworthy. These people are major manipulators and tend to fabricate lies for attention. You can't believe a word that comes out of their mouths.
Which is why I ignore celebs (Whitney) who claim to have kicked their drug habits. Once a druggie, always a druggie.
When I heard about the Mackenzie Phillips rape/incest interview with Oprah (who believes every crazy thing these celebs tell her), I knew Mackenzie was making the whole thing up.
According to her stepmother, Michelle Williams, who was married to Mackenzie's dad -- the one Mac claims raped her when she was 19 -- Mackenzie has a history of lying and manipulative behavior to get what she wants (drugs). I also wondered if there was a book deal or movie deal in the works. Sure enough, Mackenzie has a book coming out just in time to keep fueling her drug habit.
Showbiz411's Roger Friedman also suspected Mackenzie was lying and reached out to Michelle Phillips who confirmed Mackenzie is lying to sell copies of her book.
“She told me, then she called me back and said, ‘You know I’m joking.' I said it wasn’t funny. Mackenzie said, ‘I guess we have different senses of humor.’ John was a bad parent, and a drug addict. But fucking his daughter? If she thinks it’s true, why isn’t she with a good psychiatrist on a couch? I think it’s unconscionable that Oprah would let her do her show. I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show."
"Mackenzie has a lot of mental illness. She’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years. She was arrested for heroin and coke just recently. She did ‘Celebrity Rehab’ and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed.”
The whole thing is also ridiculous. After the entire pregnant male fiasco, I don't know why people continue to waste their time watching Oprah's show.
Style icon Rihanna was spotted flying out of JFK today. The pumps aren't Louis Vuitton, but they match her $1,600 Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Collection keepall 50. Ri Ri's sleeveless tee is split down the sides and features lyrics from Michael Jackson's hit "We Are The World."
Students at B. Bernice Young Elementary school in New Jersey aren't busy learning their ABC's or 123's, they're being brainwashed by pro-Obama teachers.
Imagine if your child's school hours were taken up by conservatives teaching them to sing praises to George Bush all day. No wonder their parents are outraged and contemplating pulling the kids out of school.
Here's the address of the school and the number if you would like to register a complaint:
B. Bernice Young Elementary School

I found a quote on a left-wing urban blog and it got me to thinking: do black men date and marry outside of their race because they believe women of another race are a better catch than black women?
Zabeth of Zabeth's blog asks why couldn't Lamar Odom "marry his former girlfriend of 10 years, who is also the mother of his 3 children but, somehow has the balls to marry the childless woman he's only known for 1 month!"
She goes on to say that "Khloe (and any children she may have with him) will reap ALL of the legal benefits, priviled[ges], and guarantees of being a wife while [high school sweetheart] Liza Morales will get child support."
But isn't that the image we see portrayed over and over in rap music videos? Black women are cast as "bitches", "hoes" and "baby mamas" who always have their hands out for child support, while the childless LSLH/white women are cloaked in furs and diamonds.
It should come as no surprise then that the black community leads the nation in single family homes headed by black women.
It wasn't always that way though. At one time, the black man was proud of his black woman. In 1966, for instance, 85% of black households were headed by black men. Today, it's more like 29%.
As Zabeth concludes, "[We don't] need to spell out the implications and lessons learned here."
“Hi dolls, I’m thrilled to finally be able to tell you that the news is true… Lamar and I are getting married on Sunday!!! I couldn’t be happier and I’m so excited that I can finally share the news with all of you.
“Your well wishes have meant the world to me and I am truly so blessed to have such amazing fans, family and friends during this incredible time in my life.”
Khloe's friends tell E! Online that despite the wedding being planned in just two weeks, it's still going to be a classy affair.
Your boy Jay Z has the #1 album on the Billboard Top 200 chart for the 2nd week in a row with 298,000 copies of The Blueprint 3 sold. His sales almost doubled the number of albums sold by his nearest competitor, Whitney Houston. It also means I was wrong again when I said his album wouldn't go gold this year. So congrats old man.
L.A. Lakers Pau Gasol, teammate of Lamar Odom, joined NBA TV via phone last night from his native Spain and was asked about the upcoming nuptials of Odom to Khloe Kardashian. Below is the transcript of Gasol's answers. Here is a link to the interview CLICK to watch.
And here is the transcript of the call:
NBA TV host Marc Fein: "Did you get an invitation?"
Gasol: "No I didn't, some of my teammates don't have my Spanish number, and that could be a reason. Because they only have my American number which doesn't work here because Verizon don't have that kind of coverage. But maybe that's the reason. What teammate is it?
NBA TV analyst Steve Smith: "Lamar Odom is the guy they're tweeting about, but it's just a rumor."
Gasol: "Well, that's a rumor right? If it's true, I'm happy for him, but I don't think it is, because I find it hard to believe. But, if it is, (I) wish him, wish him the best."
How much are you willing to bet they call the 'wedding' off at the last minute?
The Clayton County District Attorney upgraded charges against a racist who kicked and punched a black woman in front of her daughter at a Cracker Barrel Restaurant.
The incident occurred on September 9 outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Morrow, Georgia. Troy West, 47, and his wife were exiting the restaurant just as Tasha Hill, 35, and her 7-year-old daughter were entering.
"The man slung open the door pretty hard and fast and I had to push my daughter out of the way. I turned to the man and I just said, 'Excuse me sir, you need to watch yourself you almost hit my daughter in the face.' And from there it just went downhill," said Hill.
More words were exchanged before West threw Hill to the ground and began viciously kicking and punching her as he screamed racial epithets at the army reservist. The beating took place in full view of Hill's hysterical daughter.
The assault ended when the restaurant manager got between West and his victim.
West was initially charged with the misdemeanor assault and released on $5,000 bond. But after viewing the surveillance tape of the assault, Clayton County District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson presented the case to a grand jury Wednesday and asked for upgraded charges.
"I don't normally get personally involved in cases, but I am going to personally prosecute Mr. West on behalf of that victim and the citizens of this county," District Attorney Tracy Graham Lawson said last week.
The grand jury indicted West on new, felony charges of aggravated assault, false imprisonment, battery and disorderly conduct and he was ordered held without bond in a hearing in Clayton County court yesterday.
A group of protestors outside the courthouse who had called for the upgraded charges were happy with the outcome of the hearing.
In a phone interview with WSB TV, West's mother said her son would never hurt a mother in front of her child.
"This just doesn't sound right," said Johnny West from her Poulan home.
Rihanna was spotted out & about at the Avenue nightspot in NYC last night wearing more blond highlights in her hair and rockin' a fierce pair of Stella McCartney thigh-high perforated leggings boots. The boots which retail for around $1,500 are sold out everywhere. LOVE the funky sunglasses! Hate that shade of lip gloss on her.
Rihanna's new album is slated for release next month, and the dumb rumors have already begun in anticipation of the release. Be forewarned, you're liable to hear any crazy rumor originating out of Rihanna's camp as they work to promote the new CD. Rihanna has recruited Justin Timberlake to help out with the production, which promises big beats and big bass. So you know those "they must be dating" rumors are everywhere.
Clearly, the paparazzi thinks struggling pseudo singer Ciara is someone else (Rihanna, maybe?). There's no way the paps would be chasing after this has-been unless she was paying them. Remember that movie "Mama, I Want To Sing", the one starring Ciara and Lynn Whitfield that we all thought went straight to DVD? Well, BET added the movie to the closing night of the 13th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival in New York scheduled for September 23 through 27. Then the film will open in theaters everywhere in October. Didn't Ciara herself tell Billboard magazine last year that the movie was going straight to DVD? So what happened?
