Most of you have seen the touching commercial featuring former Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen and his wife Shannon Allen discussing their son Walker's type 1 diabetes.

According to Black Celeb Kids, Ray Allen delayed his decision to sign with the NBA champs Miami Heat until he was confident with the medical care his son would receive in Miami.

His son's care was a huge part of the decision on whether to sign with Miami. Even before the deal got done, plans were already being put in place to make sure Walker Allen would have all the support he would need in South Florida.

"We're saying goodbye to a lot of people that we grew up to know and love in our community, in the organization," Allen said. "Everything changes. You are sad about that. But it doesn't keep those people from still being close to our heart or still being friends." Source

Ray and his wife have four children together. Watch the Allens' commercial after the break!

    Coming out was the best thing Frank Ocean could have done for his unremarkable career. Ocean, a member of the eclectic Odd Future collective, announced his homosexuality in a dramatic posting on his Tumblr page last week -- just in time for the release of his album Channel Orange.

    According to industry estimates, 'Orange' is on pace to sell 125-135k in its first week based on retail pre-orders. The estimates far exceeds the 40-50k units that were originally predicted.

    Ocean is on pace to sell more albums next week than troubled singer Chris Brown whose heavily promoted studio album Fortune undersold all industry expectations.

    The blogosphere continues to poke fun at the painfully image-conscious Kardashian women. Yesterday a photoshopped image of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian (as the Klumps) went viral on the internet. The same prankster behind that photo is likely responsible for this age-proggression image of the Kardashian sisters: Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim -- as they might look when menopause kicks in in about 10 years.

    Last month the Supreme court voted 5-4 to let stand a key provision in President Obama's controversial healthcare legislation.

    In short, ObamaCare will force low-income Americans to pay for the healthcare of others.

    Today comes word that the House Agriculture Committee approved massive cuts in the final version of the 2012 farm bill, effectively taking food out of the mouths of poor babes.

    The new cuts means that "between two and three million Americans will lose access to food stamps and roughly 280,000 children will drop out of their automatic enrollment in the free lunch program at school."
