Lawrence Taylor's 3rd wife appeared on The Insider last night to defend her man against serious, career-ending charges that he raped a 16-year-old girl in a NY hotel room last week.

Taylor was arrested May 6th and charged with third-degree statutory rape and patronizing a prostitute. He was released on $75,000 bail.

Despite the fact that Taylor admitted paying the runaway teen $300 to perform sexual favors, his wife adamantly insists that her husband did nothing wrong.

Let's look at the facts:
Taylor admitted paying the teenager for sex. The teenager told her uncle and police she had sexual intercourse with the Pro Football Hall of Famer. A used condom was found inside Taylor's Holiday Inn motel room. What more evidence does his wife need? Certainly this isn't the first time LT has ordered up a prostitute while on the road.

But it is easy to understand why his wife would stand by him: they need the cash. That rape charge hanging over LT's head will certainly chase away the last few endorsements he has left.

Sean "Puffy" Combs was one of the notable music industry veterans who didn't bother to visit rapper T.I. when he was locked up inside a federal prison last year. I hear T.I. took notes on who didn't stop by -- those notes includes everyone except for rapper Nelly who drove his tour bus to Arkansas to visit the rubber band man.

So it's interesting to see that T.I. agreed to appear on this Dirty Money track and in the video. These chicks are extremely boring to me. I still don't understand why Sean signed them. He should really give up the music thing and focus on his other ventures.


It's difficult to feel sorry for armed Somali pirates who routinely hijack ships in international waters, holding crew and cargo for ransom.

Some pirates get lucky and make off with millions in cash in return for the safe passage of the ship's crew and cargo.

But these days most Somali pirates end up sleeping with the fishes.

The Somali pirates in the photo above are all deceased now according to a Somali pirate spokesman.

The "young men" had the misfortune of boarding a Russian oil tanker last week (the MV Moscow University carrying 86,000 tons of oil). The pirates held the tanker's crew of 23, plus the oil, for ransom.

Obviously the Russians feel some kind of way about their oil. So the Russian troopers who stormed the ship decided not to take names, ranks or serial numbers. They simply lined the pirates up on the deck, shot them each point blank in the head and dumped their bodies over the railing -- this, according to the pirate spokesman.

But the Russians have an entirely different version of the events that took place last week. The soldiers say the pirates were "released" on the open sea and they simply never made it back to shore.

But the pirate spokesman disputes the Russians:
“The Russians never released the young men. Instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat,” he said.


Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and Fox contributor Dick Morris both seem to think Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is just biding her time until she can run against Barack Obama for president in 2012.

On 60 Minutes earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented that the American economy is making it more difficult for her to do her job because other nations are telling her that “we always look to you because you have this great economy, and now you’re in the ditch.” Bill O’Reilly saw “a little jab” at the President in those comments, blaming the White House for her job troubles, but guest Dick Morris took that premise a bit further, suggesting the remarks, coupled with her silence on health care reform, were a deliberate attempt to undermine the President building up to 2012.“I think there is a subtle distancing going on, and it began over health care,” Morris noted, pointing out that Clinton was not vocal about supporting health care reform. Read More...

She sure wasn't. We heard nary a peep from Hillary when it came time to support Obama's health care reform initiative. She pretty much stayed out of it.

Will Hillary make a run for president in 2012 and thereby oust her boss from the White House? You bet 'cha!

You just know Hillary is sitting back collecting all types of intel to use against Obama in 2012!

Is it racist if the writer is simply stating the facts?

This is an actual news article that appeared in a Texas newspaper a year ago. Ironic isn't it? Considering that Texas is contemplating adopting the same controversial immigration legislation that was passed in Arizona last month.

A Houston teacher has been fired from her position at a school for special education students after she was caught on video viciously beating a 13-year-old student.

Sherri Davis, 40, was terminated after school officials viewed the cell phone video of the assault which took place at Jamie's House Charter School in Houston.

The boy, who has a history of disciplinary problems, had allegedly punched a female student in the class. Other teachers stood by and watched while Davis dished out punishment to the teenager by slapping, punching, kicking and slamming his head against a wall.

But there's a fine line between discipline and an all out assault, and this teacher should have known better.


US president Barack Obama is shaping up to be the biggest liar ever to occupy the White House. A bigger liar than even Bill "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton.

It would be too time consuming to list all of Obama's untruths, so let's just skip ahead to the latest piece of fiction to come out of his mouth.

If you recall, Obama said this during the Commencement address to the Hampton University graduating class this past weekend:

"With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said at Hampton University in southeastern Virginia.

Well, as others have already pointed out, the Huffington Post, ran this piece about Obama listening to Jay Z on his iPod. The same iPod that Obama claims he doesn't own or know how to work.

You might say lying about an iPod is such a small thing. But Obama lies about everything. How can we trust a man who can't even tell the truth about an iPod?

He lies all the time He lied about how often he attended services at Jeremiah Wright's church; he lied about how his parents met; how his uncle liberated Auschwitz; how his dad came to this country. The guy just lies about his own background and life. What a phony...and, btw, for someone who decries people's use of IPODs, why did he give one to Queen Elizabeth as a diplomatic gift - one filled with his own speeches. How priceless! Source

Drake looking crazy
I know it doesn't seem like it from this recent interview with XXL mag, but rapper Drake really does care what you think about him and his wack music. If he didn't, he wouldn't speak on it, would he?

... as for people's opinions and sh*t like that, it's all good. That's what's going to happen. You know people are entitled to their opinion and it takes a certain type of individual to really come online and give their opinion of your music, positive or negative. I don't know if you do it, but I can't say I've ever gone online and posted underneath someone's song, and be like, 'Dope song, son.' Or, 'That sh*t is wack.' I've never done that before. It's just a certain community of people that really feel like that's their outlet and I know that me and my friends aren't any of them so I don't know who those people are and I can't really take their opinion too close to heart just because I'm not really sure what those people are made of and if their opinion's even valid so I just kind of keep it moving.

And here's what Drake had to say about you pesky photographers always catching him looking like.... himself:

I always get caught in the worst, most unphotogenic poses ever. Now people follow me with cameras and are just clicking away and I always feel like I just look mad different in pictures. I hate seeing pictures of myself online when I'm leaving a spot or whatever. I just always get caught laughing 'cause I'm always outside making jokes or whatever with the people, but I always end up looking so stupid like that's the sh*t that I'm always like, 'Man, I wish that didn't happen,' you know?

Note to Drake: It's not the paparazzi, son. That's how you look every day.

Ciara

Ciara must be forgetting that she's not living in Bankhead Courts any more? Local residents in LA called the cops on CiCi to complain about her loud music. Narcissists typically don't consider the rights of others:

Singer Ciara had a brush with cops on Tuesday night (May 11) when a playback of her new songs prompted complaints from local residents.

The Goodies hitmaker was celebrating a pal's birthday in Los Angeles when they decided to continue the party in a nearby parking lot.

Ciara insisted it was the perfect time to unveil her latest recordings to her friends - but their raucous reactions resulted in a visit from police officers. Read More...

She even posted pics of herself with the cops on her Twitter page (I know, slow news day).
