I just received word that Antonia “Toya” Carter and her man, NFL star James Hardy have split up. And the break up may be over this little pink plastic gun that Toya recently posted on her Twitter page.

It’s amazing the things people find to talk about and blow all out of proportion! I’ve been fielding emails all week from readers about this pink gun that Toya said she received as a birthday gift.

However, word out of Toya’s camp today is that James is no longer “Toya’s man” — although the two remain good friends. This info comes from a very credible source. So, fellas, that means Toya is single and free to mingle!

Here’s what Hardy wrote on his Twitter page yesterday after apparently receiving flack from the NFL’s front office about the gun. I think a clause against purchasing or dealing in firearms is written into his contract:

Barack Obama woke up early this morning to welcome home the bodies of 18 fallen U.S. soldiers who were killed fighting the war in Afghanistan.

The photo shows Obama standing on a tarmac just before dawn and saluting as servicemen carry their fallen comrades off a transport plane.

More soldiers are dying as Obama continues to drag his feet on making a decision to send more troops to Afghanistan. One high ranking military official quit this week in disgust.

This from Kenny Soloman:

The commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America has welcomed home 18 of those under his command who have fallen. For that act, reading nothing into it, I say thank you, Sir.

However, I firmly believe the very same commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America is purposely working towards the defeat of the armed forces of The United States of America and thus the nation and her people.

It is also thoroughly abhorrent to me that the current commander-in-chief of the armed forces of The United States of America is attempting to project an understanding of the honor and gravity involved in what is taking place before him.

The Mudville Gazette noted that “only one of the families allowed the president to use the occasion for his photo-op.”

And Hermie added that George Bush never used such a solemn occasion for a photo op in his 8 years in office.

The buzz in the sports world today is centered around former Celtics star Antoine Walker who had it all and then lost it.

But before I bore you with the details of a fool and his money, loyal reader Markisha alerted us to the fact that Angels player Torii Hunter (pictured right) takes his child support responsibilities very seriously. She said when Hunter found out they didn’t take the over $4,500 dollar a month child support out of his paycheck, he called the child support office to find out why.

Now back to Walker…

According to Yahoo news, in 12 years, Antoine Walker, 33, made more than $110 million playing in the NBA. He spent his money recklessly and lived lavishly high on the hog until one day he woke up broke and owing creditors more than $4 million and faces felony check fraud charges in Las Vegas.

Only a few people who don’t understand the wasteful, fast life these ballers lead are asking how he fell so far from grace.

According to the Boston Globe, Walker’s own mother says he supported an entourage of 70 people including family members who relied on him to pay their bills.

Those people are all gone now. Don’t you chuckle at these rappers who also surround themselves with deadbeat hard legs?

Speaking of Walker’s mom, she once luxuriated in a mansion in the Chicago suburbs that her son built her, complete with an indoor pool, 10 bathrooms, and a full-size basketball court.

Do you remember Jay Z’s ex-lover Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson who shared a bachelor pad with Jigga until Beyonce put her foot down?

Well, the Chiefs suspended Johnson for using gay slurs on the social network site twitter.com. Why didn’t Johnson’s reps tell that lie that the twitter account wasn’t his like Neffe’s people did when she posted Kim Zolciak’s home number on her page?

I told y’all twitter was the devil.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been officially suspended for comments he made on his twitter account. Johnson made two gay slurs that have resulted in his punishment. The two time Pro Bowler will not be able to return to the team until November 9. His agent, Peter Shaffer, said the total dollar amount lost by Johnson would be around $600,000, which includes a game check and other lost revenue. Shaffer said that he would appeal the suspension and has consulted with the Players Association.

“We will be filing an appeal on behalf of Larry tomorrow,” Schaffer told The Associated Press. “While we respect the Chiefs’ ability to try to discipline a player, we disagree and respectfully disagree that the punishment they propose is warranted by the facts or allowable by the collective bargaining agreement. Hopefully, we will be able to work out a mutual and positive resolution with the Chiefs short of a hearing. If we don’t, then this will go to an arbitrator.”

I love old school rappers who put these wack young’ns back in their lane. Most of you might be too young to remember Nikki D, the first female rapper signed to Def Jam. But in an interview with XXL magazine, she’s speaking out on a disturbing new trend of females with artificially enhanced body parts being labeled MCs.

Nicki Minaj is a lame Lil Wayne wannabe who sounds like a fool. The idiots who co-sign this tramp have no concept of what real hip hop is or they would stop looking at her fake azz long enough to actually hear her wack delivery.

No wonder hip hop is dead.

XXLMag.com: So what do you think about some of the new female MCs that are out now?

Nikki D: There aren’t any out! Who’s out? You mean, Nicki Minaj? That’s not a rapper. That’s a girl with her ass on the screen. Nice hairdo and she’s saying some things but she’s not a rapper. She’s not an MC. She’s an artist. She’s an entertainer. There’s a difference. She can go out there and open her mouth and say whatever but people ain’t listening to her. They looking at her. And rapping is about the skill. It ain’t about your fat ass. It ain’t about your set of titties. It ain’t about that long-ass weave.
