Who else thought Charles Barkley dressed in drag was Serena Williams at first glance?

In a visual that can only be described as disturbing, Hall of Fame power forward Charles Barkley dons a dress for his next Weight Watchers commercial, USA Today reported.

The theme is to “Lose like a man,” with the message being that making an effort to drop weight is not just a female thing to do.
The Round Mound of Rebound said in December that laziness led to him gaining 100 pounds.

But Barkley is getting less round by the week, claiming to have already lost 42 pounds. The commercial, which sees Barkley in full catwalk attire, will begin running April 8. Source

It looks like actress Lindsay Lohan’s legal troubles are behind her. Earlier today, Judge Stephanie Sautner, who is apparently a big Lohan fan, declared, “She did it!” after the 25-year-old successfully completed her probation requirements.

From TMZ.com:

The judge took Lindsay off probation altogether in what herhonor called “the endless” 2007 DUI case. If Lindsay had not completed the terms of her probation, Judge Sautner could have sentenced her to 270 days in the pokey. When the judge terminated probation, Lindsay cracked a big smile and breathed a huge sigh of relief.

As Lohan walked out of the courtroom and into the bright California sunshine, she was mobbed by a crush of paparazzi and reporters asking her how it feels to be free.

Rihanna, 24, was seen arriving at Mandarin Hotel to attend a press conference for her new movie “Battleship” in London early this morning. Because she’s Rihanna, the “Birthday Cake” singer wore her favorite silk pajamas to the press conference. No one dared to ask Rihanna if she was wearing pajamas, especially after RiRi dissed a hapless reporter at another press conference yesterday.

Beyonce was spotted leaving a doctor’s office on the upper east side of New York city with her 2-month-old daughter Blue Ivy yesterday. Everyone knows that Beyonce will do anything for attention. Everyone, that is, except her family and her adoring Stans. This morning I received an email from loyal reader Munchosgirl. She sent a video which she says explains why Beyonce smothers the infant’s head under a layer of blankets and clothing — something babies don’t like at all.

Muncho claims Bey covers the baby’s face to protect her from all the camera flashing and screaming by the paparazzi. So why doesn’t Beyonce leave the child at home — or better yet, stay home with her? Don’t doctors make house calls? I think we all know the answer to that question.

Watch the video after the break.

ABC News has obtained police surveillance video of George Zimmerman’s arrest the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood. Despite his lawyer’s claims that Zimmerman was beaten to a “bloody mess” by the 17-year-old, who broke his nose and slammed his head on the sidewalk — the police video shows no evidence of such injuries.

Zimmerman is shown hopping out of the back of a police cruiser with no assistance from the police. He walks under his own power, and holds his head down, despite the report that his nose was supposedly broken.

In light of this new video footage, Zimmerman’s supporters, which includes Casey Anthony’s former attorney Jose Baez, now say that Zimmerman doesn’t need physical injuries to prove a case of self defense.

The tragic death of Trayvon Martin due to racial profiling has dominated headlines around the world. But there is another death due to a different form of profiling that has gone virtually unnoticed.

Like Trayvon, Anna Brown was also young and black. She died at age 29 due to the indifference, and gross negligence, of an emergency room doctor who denied her the basic right to seek medical treatment because he formed the opinion that she was a drug seeker.

On Sept. 20, 2011, Anna Brown showed up at St. Mary’s hospital emergency room complaining of acute pain in her ankle and knee. She had sprained her ankle and had visited the emergency room earlier complaining of pain. X-rays of her knees were negative and she was given a prescription for a painkiller.

But Brown knew something was terribly wrong with her. She refused to leave the emergency room. She told hospital security that she could barely stand due to the excruciating pain in her legs.

Brown was literally dragged from St. Mary’s Hospital by police and thrown into a jail cell because the emergency room doctor told police she was a drug seeker. Brown died less than an hour later of a pulmonary embolism — blood clots that traveled from her legs. This is the same condition that took the life of rapper Heavy D.

Brown, who was homeless, fit the doctor’s profile of a “drug seeker” because she was young, black, poor, and in pain.

Once you are profiled as a drug seeker by a doctor or a nurse in the emergency room setting, there is almost nothing you can do or say to change their opinion of you. You will be denied basic health care, and you may lose your life as a result.

If you think what happened to Anna Brown can’t happen to you, read on.
