They are in Cannes to attend the Cannes film festival. You can always tell the size of a man's, shall we say, ego, by the type of women he dates, and/or the type of car he drives.

A social studies teacher in North Carolina was suspended with pay for threatening an anti-Obama student with arrest.

Tonya Dixon-Neely, who is black, took offense to the student challenging President Obama who criticized Mitt Romney for bullying when the future president himself bullied an overweight, black girl in high school.

In his best-selling book, Dreams From My Father, Mr. Obama recalled an incident when he shoved the girl and told her to get away from him because Mr. Obama didn't want his white friends to believe he liked her.

Terricka Cromartie writes:

I don't generally read your blog nor do I ever feed into negativity but I can't keep my mouth closed on this. You put a complete bullshit post up yesterday regarding a friend of mine, Terricka Cromartie. It was an ignorant post with no truth or validity to it. It is hurtful and disrespectful to belittle someones character when you know nothing about them.

Terricka is the first person who ever embraced me and befriended me when I was a scared kid living in Los Angeles with no friends. Terricka is the person who took my calls at 5 am when I was heartbroken and hysterical and wouldn't hang up until I was calmed down and okay. Terricka is a smart, kind, caring, loving person. She is a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend and so on. Can you please not throw dirt on her name when you know nothing about her.

The attention should be given to the lowlife who is stalking her and all of her friends on instagram, twitter, etc and sending you these bogus stories. You like to say "this is a family blog so I won't post this at this time..." and things of that nature so can you please think of her kids and her family before you blast her for no reason on your "family oriented blog" you run. Thanks.

A New Brunswick judge today sentenced 20-year-old Dharun Ravi to just 30 days in prison for his role in a webcam invasion of privacy incident which resulted in the suicide of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi.

Ravi, a former Rutgers student, had faced up to 20 years in prison.

The judge, who apparently wasn't affected by intense media pressure, also didn't order Ravi to be deported to his native India after he serves his sentence.

Ravi had earlier rejected two plea deals which would have sent him to prison for 3-5 years.

Ravi shed tears as his mother read a statement during the hearing, saying he was "broken into pieces" by Clementi's death in 2010.

NY Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie has 99 problems -- and his wife is one of them.

According to the NY Post, Terricka Cromartie, 31, is a manipulative, vindictive woman who lied about a suicide attempt because she thought Cromartie -- a man with 10 children and 8 baby mamas -- was cheating on her.

Obviously, Terricka is one of those delusional chicks who thinks she is unique, and has special powers to change a dog into a caring, thoughtful, responsible man.

Women like Terricka are always unpredictable when they are forced to face the hard truth that they are not that special.

The Post reports that Terricka, while seven months pregnant with their second child, sent Cromartie, who was in Miami, text messages that read: “God forgive me, I don’t want to die. What have I done?” and “I cut my wrists. I took those pills."
