In this graphic video, a 62-year-old Bronx, NY woman is mauled by two pit bulls as they broke away from their owner. Surveillance video from a nearby store caught the attack Monday as the dog handler frantically tried to restrain his dogs. After the attack, the dogs's unidentified owner is seen beating one of the dogs with his fists.

Carmen Cabrero's daughter translated for her Spanish-speaking mother. Cabrera told Fox News that the two dogs pinned her against a refrigerator on the sidewalk, and were going for her face but she blocked them with her arm.

Cabrera said she called the police after being treated at a hospital for dog bites. But the man and the dogs were long gone. She said something needs to happen before the dogs strike again.

LeBron James Jr. may be youngest NBA exec in history, according to USA Today. The 7-year-old, nicknamed "Bron Bron" by his parents, was given a front office job with his dad's Miami Heat NBA franchise. The distinction was awarded with a court side seat in the NBA executives' section of the American Airlines Arena.

Junior was sitting court side when his dad, LeBron, accepted his Most Valuable Player trophy during the game 1 victory over the hapless Indiana Pacers in the 2nd round of the playoffs on Sunday. The youngster who turns 8 on October 6 looked snazzy in a tailored suit and tie. It still isn't clear what Bron Bron's title is (or his pay scale), but it probably involves a lot more than just pushing paper clips around his desk. Good for Bron Bron!

Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett attended the Tennis Open Final in Madrid, Spain Sunday. The Smith's are on a worldwide promotional tour for his latest film Men In Black III. MIB III co-star Josh Brolin (not pictured) was also there to congratulate winner Roger Federer.

If aging rapper Jay Z was forced to live his life out of the public eye, he would probably die. It isn't enough that the 43-year-old announces he is headlining yet another concert, but he has to do it in typical grandiose style, on the steps of a museum, surrounded by the fawning press.

President Barack Obama is typical of most narcissists who say what they think their audience wants to hear. If there is any backlash, they usually resort to a well-rehearsed list of excuses or defenses.

This is what happened when Obama decided to buck 6,000 years of tradition and reinterpreted the Bible to serve his own political purposes.

When Obama voiced his personal opinion on same-sex marriages, he didn't consider the 95% of black voters who contributed to his historic election in 2008 -- more than half of whom are opposed to same-sex marriage.

In each of the 30 states where gay marriage is banned, black voters were contributing factors.

Black voters make up between 15% and 30% of the voting pool in key states. But Obama didn't care about the black vote in 2008, so he certainly isn't concerned with the black vote now.

What does concern the president and his advisers are the evangelical churches whose denominations are mostly conservative. That is why, in the hours after his historic announcement on May 9, one of the first people Obama reached out to was the Rev. Joel C. Hunter, the pastor of a large conservative megachurch in Florida (pictured above).

Newsweek magazine features President Barack Obama on the cover of the May 21st issue. The heading reads: 'THE FIRST GAY PRESIDENT.'

Of course, the president isn't gay, but he made history on May 9 when he became the first sitting president to voice his opinion endorsing same-sex marriage.

In his cover piece, writer Andrew Sullivan makes the inevitable comparison between the civil rights struggle and gay rights.

And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. "He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family," Sullivan writes.

Is there trouble in paradise for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon? The superstar couple hosted the Project Canvas Charity Event at The Opera Ballroom at Crest in New York City on Friday. But take a look at the photos from the event. If you are a student of body language it is easy to decode Mariah's signals.

Look at the way Mariah is standing next to Nick. It is easy to tell which one is in love with the other more.

Nick's body is pointing toward his love interest, while Mariah stands in every picture as if she is alone.

These images are a perfect example of a woman who has lost interest. Even in the photos where they are standing in close proximity, it still looks like Mariah is in the photo alone. They're heads are not touching and Mariah leans away from her husband.

No part of Mariah's body is pointed toward Nick.

Marissa Alexander will spend the next 20 years in prison for discharging a weapon at her husband. Alexander's case was the subject of intense debate following the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, whose killer invoked the "Stand Your Ground" law.

But Florida State Attorney Angela B. Corey argued that Marissa was not standing her ground when she fired her handgun during a dispute with her husband, Rico Gray, on August 1, 2010.

The 31-year-old mother of 3 said she planned to drive away, but she panicked when she realized the garage door was broken.

To many observers, Denver Nuggets center Chris Andersen is a strange bird. From the full body tattoos to his spiked hair, Birdman, as he's known to his many fans, makes an interesting first impression when he walks into a room. But one thing people probably don't view him as is a child sex predator.

On Thursday, Andersen's Colorado home was the scene of a flurry of activity as Douglas County sheriff's detectives served warrants and seized evidence from his home.

Andersen has been under investigation since February, when the Douglas County sheriff's office received a tip from California authorities that child porn was either exchanged or downloaded from a computer inside Anderson's residence.

Former child star Lark Vorhies is 38 now, and finally she's happy in her own skin. Why can't we be happy for her?

Yesterday, the woman known to millions of Saved By The Bell fans as "Lisa Turtle" appeared on a segment of Yahoo's The Yo Show hosted by the flamboyant Michael Yo.

Married with one child, Lark appeared to be relaxed and quite content after all these years living in the shadow of her perky TV character. Lark probably doesn't care that her mature appearance has sparked such an uproar on social networks such as

Did she have plastic surgery? Is she bleaching? Maybe. But shouldn't her skin be lighter if she was bleaching? Does she wear a ton of makeup? Yes, but most women do because they fear they will be judged harshly if they don't.

Yes, kids, stars get old. And some of them drop the pretenses of going through the motions of maintaining Hollywood's standard of beauty.

We would all be in big trouble if we were held to the same rigid standards that the media holds certain presidential candidates to.

GOP candidate Mitt Romney was forced to apologize today for boyhood pranks he committed while in high school decades ago. According to classmates of young Romney, Mitt allegedly cut the hair of a boy who he considered to be gay.

According to the liberal media, Romney objected to the boy's bleached blonde locks. So he assembled "a posse" of friends to hold the boy down while he took a pair of scissors to his head.

The accusations came one day after President Obama made history by endorsing same sex marriages.

In a statement released today, Romney apologized for not being straitlaced and perfect in high school back in the 1960s.

Romney said: "Back in high school, you know, I did some dumb things. If anyone was hurt by that or offended by that, obviously I apologize. But overall, high school years were a long time ago."

The boy whose hair was cut was expelled from high school for smoking and later died of liver cancer in 2004.

Too bad Mitt Romney didn't know back then that he would be running for president in 2012, or he would have been as perfect as the rest of us.

There's a small spot on your tongue that doesn't seem to go away. You noticed it months ago but it's painless so you didn't get it checked out until you visited your dentist for a routine teeth cleaning.

The dentist examines the area and then performs a few diagnostic tests. He suspects that you might have oral cancer but you will need a biopsy to confirm his suspicions. Your dentist makes an appointment for you to see a cancer specialist.

Most of the time those tiny white or red spots in your mouth are harmless. But you will never know for sure unless you get regular dental checkups at least twice a year.

Someone dies from oral or tongue cancer every hour. Oral cancer accounts for about 9,000 deaths a year, according to the American Dental Association. Oral cancer has the worst 5-year survival rate of all cancers because it is rarely diagnosed early.

Singer Chris Brown apparently disses his former girlfriend Rihanna in the most embarrassing way: on a track.

On "Way Too Cold" -- riding to Kanye West's "Thera Flu" beat, Chris spits:

"Don't fu*k with my old bitches like a bad fur/Every industry nigga done had her/Trick or treat like a pumpkin just to smash her/Bitches breaking codes, but I'm the password."'

Here's Rihanna's response to the track:

And here's Chris Brown's reply to Rihanna:

Oops... All of this kind of answers a question that's been nagging me for about a month now. I will keep that question to myself for right now. But I will say that I don't mind being used, as long as I'm getting something out of it.

President Barack Obama is expected to make a statement endorsing gay marriage in America. Obama sat down with ABC's Robin Roberts today -- one day after North Carolina voters passed a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages and unions in that state.

The residents of North Carolina spoke with one voice, but Obama is expected to condemn their decision by speaking out against the amendment.

In his statements today, the president is expected to cave under pressure from special interest groups and gay rights organizations in an effort to win re-election.

Update: Here is the statement that Obama made endorsing gay marriage just moments ago during an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts.

OBAMA: I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.

Watch the video after the break.
