According to Hot Air, a dissenter at Barack Obama's Town Hall meeting yesterday dissed Obama in a room full of Kool aid drinkers and she wasn't booed or tackled to the floor and dragged out of the room!

The woman, who identified herself as a wife, a mother, and the Chief Financial Officer of a veteran’s service organization, told Obama that she’s tired of defending him and his administration.

As she talked, Obama squirmed and shifted in his seat. It was an amazing display of audacity not normally seen at an Obama Town Hall meeting where attendees are usually hand picked in advance from Kool aid drinkers who are passionately loyal to Obama.

Times have changed.

Here's an excerpt of what she said to Obama:

"I'm an American veteran, and I'm one of your middle class Americans. And quite frankly, I'm exhausted. Exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for. And deeply disappointed with where we are right now.

I have been told that I voted for a man who said that he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I'm one of those people and I'm waiting, sir. I'm waiting. I don't feel it yet. And I thought, while it wouldn't be in great measure, I would feel it in some small measure.

I have 2 children in private school, and the financial recession has taken an enormous toll on my family.

"My husband and I have joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives, but, quite frankly, it's starting to knock on our door and ring true that that might be where we're headed again, and, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly. Is this my new reality?

Normally I don't waste my time writing about this spoiled brat heiress, Paris Hilton. But this story is too interesting to ignore.

After pleading guilty on a charge of cocaine possession in Las Vegas yesterday, Paris hopped on a private jet to Tokyo, Japan.

Wealthy celebs like Paris routinely make a mockery of the US justice system. But foreign countries are not so lenient. Especially since Paris has been arrested on multiple occasions for cocaine possession.

Paris probably thought she would breeze through the Narita airport customs and then settle into the lap of luxury at a high class hotel with her sister Nikki and friends.

But immigration officials at the Tokyo airport got wind of her guilty plea in the US the day before. So, as soon as she landed, the convicted felon was detained at the airport and interrogated for six hours by Japanese officials.

Now Paris is being forced to stay in a low budget, $60-a-night hotel on the airport grounds, under the watchful eye of 2 female guards, while immigration decides what to do with her.

Paris was in Tokyo to unveil her 2010 Fall/Winter accessories collection. But those events have now been cancelled.

According to Splash News online:

She entered through a separate secure section in a van owned by the airport. The area of the hotel she is staying in is separated from other hotel guests and she will be monitored around the clock by two female officers outside the room. It is a far-cry from the 5-star hotel in Tokyo where sister Nicky Hilton is believed to be staying.

It sure looks like convicted felon Paris Hilton is under house arrest in Tokyo. Or they would have simply allowed her to leave the country by now. I don't feel sorry for her one bit.

Superstar rap mogul Jay Z, who played a sold-out Yankee Stadium 2 nights in a row, returned yesterday to watch the NY Yankees play the Tampa Rays. He sat in Alex Rodriguez's seat in the VIP box.

Jay's Yankee cap had a personalized inscription under the brim that read, "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can". He's such a typical narcissist, isn't he?

His accessories included an Audemars Piguet Royal Offshore Las Vegas Strip Chronograph timepiece, which retails for $29,500.

And a bejeweled NY Yankees World Series replica ring. Jay Z and his buddy chris Martin of the rock band Coldplay will perform separately during a 3-day gig to celebrate the opening of the Cosmopolitan Casino and Resort on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas.

First and foremost, I had no idea Sarah Chapman had breast implants or that she was a smoker. Sean Combs' baby mama soaked up the sun with friends on Miami Beach while Sean visited with his daughter Chance at his Star Island manse.


Sarah is still a looker, but the implants and the cigarettes does tarnish her image a little. It's always disappointing when you find out someone you once admired has flaws.

How did reality TV personality Kim Kardashian get those butt pads through customs at the airport? Wouldn't butt pads that large be considered contraband because they could be used to smuggle drugs and nonperishable goods? Kim and her mom Kris caused a scene when they arrived at Gold restaurant today in Milan, Italy.

It's official: singer/songwriter Bruno Mars is now more famous than rappers B.o.B and Cee-Lo, who he wrote songs for.

The singer/songwriter who rose to fame by writing and performing on such songs as "Nothing On You" by B.o.B, was busted at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Vegas early this morning for possession of 2.6 grams of cocaine, according to TMZ.

Be prepared to see Bruno Mars' fame reach dizzying heights now that he's got his street cred.

I never heard of Bruno Mars until after the 2010 MTV VMAs (which I didn't watch). That's when I learned that the catchy tune I was listening to in my car every weekend was actually a B.o.B. song.

Radio DJs hardly ever announce the artist's name anymore. I guess they assume everyone already knows who the song is by.

But I had no clue that "Nothing On You" or "Airplanes" were by B.o.B. I had always wondered why those two singers allowed a rapper to ruin their songs. I'm not hating, I'm just being real.

Bruno just released the music video for his song "Just The Way You Are."

If you have any doubts in your mind that Bruno can throw down vocally, listen to this live acoustic performance of "Billionaire" on the Dick in the Morning Show.

Last week I named @YoungSanchezz, real name Asher, as the winner the lucky winner of my SR Gift Pack. The SR Gift Pack included a black diamond encrusted watch courtesy of celebrity jeweler Joe Rodeo, a Gucci messenger bag and a pair of Gucci shades! The total value of the Gift Pack was $3,000!


Over the weekend, Asher came to Phipps Plaza in the exclusive Buckhead area of Atlanta to pick up his winnings. He was so excited he could hardly contain himself!


Asher loved his prizes and he expressed his thanks to Joe Rodeo and Hannah Kang of Grand Hustle who made it all possible!

Asher also told me he read some of your negative comments in last week's post. But he said it's all good. He knows you're just smelling him because he's the ish!

Stay tuned for more giveaways in the very near future! YOU could be the next winner!


Isn't he handsome?

In case you missed La La and Carmelo's Full Court Wedding episode on VH1 last night, VH1 blog has the recap.


Awww, La La and Carmelo show us the real reason why they tied the knot: to give their 3-year-old son Kiyan a more stable home environment. He is all that counts.


The impossibly handsome singer/actor/poet Tyrese was one of the 400 wedding guests


La La's parents must have had her when they were very young.


The reason I say weddings are for women is because (heterosexual) men would give their eye teeth not to have to plan one.

Wouldn't you love to have a friend like Rihanna who flies you to Las Vegas and throws a fabulous bachelorette party for you before you tie the knot -- even though there are rumors that the two of you are kickin' it on the low?


Say what you want about Rihanna's singing, but who in the industry is killing the style game the way she is right now?

If you missed the Season 2 premiere of Fantasia For Real last night, there are 2 really good recaps here and here.

In the opening scenes we get to see Fantasia's beautiful daughter, Zion Quari Barrino, who appears to be a happy, well-adjusted little girl, despite the circumstances.

My favorite recap is by Rich over at VH1 blog. His pics of the infamous Aunt Bunny are hilarious! But apparently Rich couldn't give us all the dirt due to the fact that he cashes checks issued to him by VH1.

TVgasm gives us a more thorough rundown of what went down during last night's episode. The following recap is a mash up of Rich's screenshots and TVgasm's color commentary.

Angelina Jolie shielded her frightened daughter Zahara from the paparazzi as they landed at LAX airport yesterday from Paris.

Angie's gender confused son "John" (formerly, Shiloh) was carrying a wooden sword. This is further proof that the famous and wealthy are different from the rest of us. Last week, singer Lady Gaga strolled through JFK airport in NYC wearing practically nothing, and now John carries a weapon through airport customs and he wasn't wrestled to the ground by homeland security? I'm kidding of course. Click the image above to see how filthy John's clothes are. He's a typical rough and tumble boy!


The Rev. Run's daughter Angela Simmons splashed in the surf on Miami Beach yesterday. She's not my type, but she's a bad bish. As a blogger, I feel it is my duty to file these photos away for future reference in case Angela's boobs should suddenly grow to a size D, or her butt magically inflates to Kim Kardashian proportions.

US president Barack Hussein Obama attended church services with the First family this morning.

This news is significant because Obama hasn't attended a church regularly since he took office in January, 2009.

Mind you, the church is directly across the street from the White House, yet Obama and his family attended services there for only the first time today.

No doubt, this publicity stunt was staged today as a result of growing public sentiment that Barack Obama is an undercover Muslim.

According to Drudgereport.com:

The first family left the White House on foot this morning for the 9am choral holy eucharist service and sermon at St John's Church Lafayette Square.

The Obamas walked out of the residence at 8.49am and crossed the park to the nearby Episcopal church.

The president was wearing a dark suit and held Sasha Obama's hand. She was wearing a blue dress and cream cardigan. Michelle and Malia Obama were wearing cream-colored dresses.

Lafayette Park and Pennsylvania Avenue in front of White House were closed to the public.

For those of you who say it is complicated for the Obamas to attend a church service -- I guess Obama proved you wrong!


It couldn't be that complicated if the Obamas walked over there this morning.

The Obamas were members of the controversial Rev. Wright's church in Chicago for many years. Wright's church has strong ties to the Minister Farakhan who was (and still is) a neighbor of Obama's. Other church goers don't recall Obama attending regular services at Wright's church either.

Drudge didn't indicate what the service was about this morning, but today's word is Luke 16:1-13, which ends 'You cannot serve God and wealth.'

R&B Diva Monica and rapper Jay-Z posed for a picture backstage at The Beacon Theatre in NYC last night. Monica was performing there with Trey Songz, who is set to go on tour with Usher when this current tour ends. When Jigga arrived, Monica tweeted, "Jay Z is in the building tonight. My favorite rapper of ALL time. So beautiful to see he is still so humble. He watched & saluted me like a G." She also mentioned that he made one of her dancers tuck his shirt in. This, from a man who wears his jeans sagging around his knees like a 5-year-old.


Monica, who is the co-headliner along with Trey, puts her all into every performance so her fans leave the venue feeling like they got their money's worth.


When you have limited talent, you just stand there and grab your gonads like Trey songz. Thank God real singers like James Brown, Otis Redding and Harry Belafonte relied on their talent and never had to resort to disrespectful gestures to get an audience hyped.

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan took to her Twitter page last night to admit failing recent drug tests. She also admitted to being a substance abuser and she swore she is going to do better.

But past history (and the fact that she initially denied failing her drug tests) tells us that we can't believe her.

The star-struck UCLA drug rehab doctors who "treated" Lindsay for substance abuse incorrectly recommended an early rehearse for her because she told them what they wanted to hear.

Though the docs failed in their duty to protect Lindsay from herself (and the public from her), they did get one thing right: they diagnosed Lindsay with a personality disorder.

Because of her diagnosis -- complicated by her non-compliance and drug abuse -- we can't believe one word Lindsay says, or Tweets.

Like I wrote yesterday, this story will end when Lindsay Lohan kills herself or someone else.

According to TMZ.com, troubled actress Lindsay Lohan failed multiple drug tests -- including testing positive for cocaine -- in the days since she was released from a UCLA drug treatment center.

This means the doctors at UCLA were wrong when they recommended early release for Lohan.

Lohan was originally sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in a drug treatment center for violating probation on a DUI charge. She ended up serving only 13 days behind bars due to the overcrowded jails.

Following her release from jail, Lohan checked into the rehab facility at UCLA, where star-struck doctors determined she was not a chronic substance abuser, and recommended an early release from rehab.

Of course that was a mistake. But there is something odd about people on the west coast who continue to coddle and pamper spoiled, rich celebrities like Lohan.

This story won't end until Lohan kills herself or someone else. I'm glad I don't live in LA.

On the 2nd season of Fantasia For Real, Fanty is confronted by her mom and Aunt Bunny about her cheating ways. Typical of women with personality disorders, Fantasia blames her past history and makes excuses to explain her unacceptable behavior.

After her mom tells her it's "not a good look" to cheat openly with a married man, Fantasia lies her azz off, saying, "I met a man.. a man that was separated... he's not my boyfriend..."

She then dissolves into tears on cue.


Fantasia For Real Season 2 premieres this Sunday, Sept. 19, on VH1. Check your local cable listings for times.

According to online reports, rapper T.I. was summoned to court to answer to probation violations filed by his probation officer.

“We are very disappointed in Mr. Harris’ recent conduct," U.S. Attorney Sally Yates said in a statement released Friday. "We will make our sentencing recommendation at the revocation hearing.”

A court date has not been set yet.

T.I., real name Clifford Harris, Jr., was busted during a traffic stop on Sept. 1st in West Hollywood after making an illegal u-turn in his Maybach. A search of the vehicle turned up just 3 ecstasy pills.

According to TMZ, T.I. tested positive for opiates (which can be found in a ton of drugs).

The police report doesn't mention any other drug found in T.I.'s possession.


The probation violations includes possession of a controlled substance (ecstasy), testing positive for opiates and association with a known felon, Cortez Thomas, stage name C-Rod (pictured above with T.I. at the 2008 VMAs).

As I told you earlier, T.I.'s best friend, former P$C member C-Rod and his girlfriend Vanity, were taken into custody along with T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle during the Sept. 1 traffic stop.

Coincidentally, C-Rod was among those arrested, along with T.I. and Tiny, in a Walgreens parking lot on October 13, 2007, the day the BET Hip Hop Awards was taped in Atlanta.

That arrest resulted in a 12 month-and-one-day sentence for T.I. in federal prison (he was released to an Atlanta halfway house in Dec. 2009 after serving 9 mos.). But charges were dropped against C-Rod, even though it was alleged in ATF documents that Harris gave Thomas $7000 to give to a bodyguard for the purchase of firearms and silencers.

Those of you who listen to Flo-Rida's music probably know what video he was shooting in Miami yesterday. I'm just shaking my head at the low budget video vixens. What's up with the proliferation of tats and hoe stamps in our community? I can understand the dumb rappers marking their bodies up, but the chicks are doing it too?


Do these young ladies realize they look like their little siblings scribbled all over them with magic markers? Do they know they look low class and trashy, or do they just not care?

After launching an intense manhunt for a crazed black woman who threw acid in a Vancouver woman's face, police announced the "victim" admitted she made the whole thing up.

"She is extremely upset and very remorseful," said police Cmdr. Marla Schuman. "In many ways, this just got bigger than she expected."

"It seems clear to everyone that we have a person here who is in a fragile mental state," she added.

Bethany Storro's story made worldwide headlines after she reported an apparently random acid attack on Aug. 30. Storro told police a black woman carrying a styrofoam cup approached her as she was getting into her car, and said, “Hey, pretty girl, want something to drink?”

When she declined, Storro said the woman threw a caustic substance from the cup into her face. Storro was treated for 2nd degree burns to her face. Days later she bravely held a press conference in the hospital with her face swathed in bandages, and her parents by her side.

Storro credited her last minute decision to wear sunglasses with saving her eyesight.

But it was that small detail that left investigators baffled: the attack allegedly occurred at 7:40 at night.

Detectives said they began to suspect a hoax after other aspects of the case just didn't add up. For instance, investigators looked at the splash pattern of the acid, and the fact that the acid didn't run down her neck.

The case turned when Storro's story continued to change. On Thursday, Vancouver police served a search warrant on the residence where Storro was staying. They declined to say what they recovered inside the home.

The alleged race of the attacker sparked a barrage of racist comments on newspaper message boards all over the country. Some message boards were shut down due to the violent content of the comments.

Police don't believe Storro's parents knew the attack was a hoax. But they should have informed police that their daughter had a history of mental problems.

"They've been fully cooperative with us today," Schuman said.

Clark County Senior Deputy Prosecutor John Fairgrieve said once their investigation is complete the case will go to the prosecutor. Charges could include making a false or misleading statement to a police officer, a gross misdemeanor that's punishable by a maximum of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Storro's mental health will be taken into consideration, Fairgrieve said.

I don't spend a lot of time on Twitter.com. So I had no idea that my friend, R&B Diva Monica, responded to my earlier post on her Twitter page.

I only became aware of Mo's tweets when one of her family members called me on the phone saying I "baited Monica" with my post.

First of all, anyone with eyes can see how much Monica cherishes, loves and cares for her children. I posted that email in response to a dare, not because I was baiting Mo.

There was no need for Mo to respond because her steps are ordered and she is living her life accordingly.

The White House has lashed out at a Forbes magazine cover story that accuses US president Barack Obama of having his father's "Kenyan, anti-colonial" world view.

"It's a stunning thing, to see a publication you would see in a dentist's office, so lacking in truth and fact," huffed White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

On Thursday Gibbs met with Forbes's Washington bureau chief, Brian Wingfield to express his concerns with the cover story. The spokesman asked Wingfield to "convey to [Forbes NY office] my question of what their plan is to correct the many factual errors that I and others have pointed out about the cover story."

But Dinesh D'Souza, the author of the Forbes cover piece, contends that he merely gave his opinion on the way Obama thinks.

D'Souza, who loosely based the article on his forthcoming book, "The Roots of Obama's Rage," insists "the idea that Obama has roots that are foreign is not an allegation, it's a statement of fact."

D'Souza's article begins by calling Obama "the most antibusiness president in a generation, perhaps in American history."

He then ties Obama's policies to his father, Barack Obama Sr.'s, way of thinking, "He took his father's dream, his vision, his ideology," D'Souza says in the interview. "Clearly the anti-colonial ideology of Barack Obama Sr. goes a long way to explain the actions and policies of his son in the Oval Office. ... The invisible father provides the inspiration."

But according to Gibbs, D'Souza accuses Obama of adopting his late father's philosophy of weakening America and the West by draining America's financial resources to empower other countries.

For example, D'Souza writes that the Export-Import Bank, "with Obama's backing," last year offered $2 billion in loans and guarantees to Brazil to explore for oil that he says would remain in Brazil.

In a press release, the publication stated, "No facts are in contention. Forbes stands by the story."

By now you've heard the latest allegations of cheating against actor Ashton Kutcher. According to Star magazine (which long ago shed its less savory tabloid image), a 21-year-old woman has come forward to reveal she had sex with Ashton in the home he shares with his wife, actress Demi Moore, who turns 48 n November.

Brittney Jones told Star magazine that she met Kutcher on July 24, and slipped him her phone number after flirting with him at a bowling alley in Hollywood, when Ashton was bowling with Demi and her daughter Rumer Willis.

She said she was surprised when the 32-year-old actor contacted her a few days later asking if she was busy.

"I did all the suggesting in the texts, it was like he was paranoid and didn't want to text anything that would get him in trouble," Brittney said. "I asked him if he wanted to meet, that's how we made the plans."

Jones said not long after she arrived at Ashton and Demi's home, she and Kutcher stripped naked and made passionate love on the living room sofa.

"He's a great lover, very considerate and sweet," said Brittney. “I felt totally comfortable in his arms. It was tender and nice — not some random sex act.”

She said she asked Kutcher if he wanted to continue their romp in the bedroom. But Kutcher refused, preferring to bang her on the sofa instead.

Even before the details of their romantic interlude was published, Ashton took to his Twitter page to first deny the allegations, and then to threaten legal action.

Here's why I believe Briitney's story:

I was dared to post this email, so here it is.

Reader Sam Hope writes*:

Hello Sandra,

This email is in response to your post regarding Jennifer Hudson; yes she seems like a wonderful Mother and you're right about LaLa who is hardly ever seen with her son. However, Solange is a great mother to be so young, but please add Monica to your list of mothers who need to be more like Jennifer. Instead of Monica "Vacationing" or better yet, being a hood rat, she should be looking after her TWO KIDS.

Is she coming out with an album or a reality show soon because she's on the blogs way to much just because she's dating (and when I say dating, I mean screwing) a basketball player? Lets be real, Shannon is a professional basketball player that is trying to get his brand out there. He wants a shoe [contract] and a fan base like LeBron and Kobe, so why not screw a singer to get the attention he needs. However, if you ask me, he could have used a better known celeb to do that.

Take Care Love your Blog.........

My response:

Hi Sam, I posted your email. Please check my blog to see how many of my readers disagree with you. There can be no doubt that Monica takes very good care of her two boys. Have a good day.

Here's Sam's response to my community:

Ok carry on kissing her ass then.

Michelle Obama thinks her job as First Lady is "hell," according to an explosive new book written in collaboration with Carla Bruni, the wife of French president Nicolas Sarkozy.

The conversation took place during an official visit to the White House by Sarkozy last March. Miss Bruni reveals that when she asked Mrs. Obama how she liked her position as First Lady, she responded "Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!"

Maybe Michelle thought Miss Bruni asked her how she liked being married to the First Narcissist, Barack Obama?

Actress/singer Jennifer Hudson was spotted toting her cutie pie son, David "Punk" Otunga Jr. after her appearances on 'Good Morning America' and 'Live With Regis & Kelly' this morning in NYC to campaign for heathy meals for children.

J-Hud is a great mom and an excellent role model who is rarely seen apart from her baby. That's the way it should be. Celebs such as LaLa Vazquez and Solange Knowles should take note.
