Ridiculously inappropriate Halloween costumes for children

It’s almost the bewitching hour — that time when little ghosts and goblins will take to the streets of Your Town to strong arm you and your neighbors for bagfuls of free candy. Inevitably, a few childish adults who live vicariously through their toddlers will dress their tykes in wildly inappropriate — and even offensive — costumes. This post is intended to give you parents an FYI so you won’t embarrass your children (and yourselves) with similar ridiculous costumes.

And remember, if you plan to take your child(ren) to the local mall to trick or treat, the malls will not allow children over 12 to wear masks inside the stores.

Preachers of LA

In last night’s episode of Oxygen Network’s popular reality TV series Preachers of LA, Minister Deitrick Haddon and Dominique tied the knot in a quickie wedding after his mother-in-law issued her moral directive: no shacking up before marriage.

Haddon purchased a 6-bedroom 7, bathroom home just in time for the nuptials. Dominique proved she is an obedient, submissive partner by agreeing to the quickie marriage. Most women would demand they wait until the official wedding so they can show off in front of their girlfriends. The women’s selfish, entitled mentality is part of the reason why most marriages fail. Good things comes to women who mind their men and stay in their lanes.

Nene Leakes is broke

Over the weekend, I heard from an insider who told me Real Housewives of Atlanta alumni Nene Leakes is broke again after spending money like water all over town. According to the source, Nene spent over $200K on pricey Rolex watches and diamond jewelry for herself and her on-again, off-again husband, Greg Leakes. She also went on a shopping spree in Atlanta, buying expensive trinkets for herself to wear on the show.

But when it comes to paying her taxes, Nene comes up short.

According to Hip Hop Daily Press, Nene owes $25,000 in back taxes for property she owned in Sacramento, Calif. No wonder Nene begged for her old job back on Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Not Avonte Oquendo

A photo of a boy riding a NY subway train who was thought to be missing 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo has been identified. NYPD officers located the boy in the photo and determined he was not the missing autistic child who vanished after he walked out of his Queens, NY high school on Oct. 4.

“It was not Avonte. This person whose photo it was was in the precinct with his parents,” a police spokeswoman told the Daily News.

The photo, taken by an unidentified teenager on Tuesday, lifted hopes that Avonte was alive, but Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said he was “not hopeful” Avonte was still alive. Kelly later apologized to Avonte’s enraged family.

Avonte Oquendo

New York City police are investigating whether a sighting of a young boy riding a NY subway train is a missing autistic teen.

A teenager riding an E or F train on Tuesday told police he believed he saw 14-year-old Avonte Oquendo, who went missing one month ago from his school in Queens, NY.

The teen said he approached the boy and asked him, “Hey, are you Avonte?” But the boy did not respond. The unidentified teen had the presence of mind to snap a photo of the boy before he got off the train.

When shown the photo of the boy on the train, Avonte’s father said he wasn’t sure if the boy was Avonte, who is unable to speak.

Jay Z

Bosses at high end retailer Barneys released a statement apologizing to rapper Jay Z following media reports of racial profiling incidents involving black consumers at the New York location.

2 young black shoppers filed separate complaints accusing Barneys of racially profiling them after they made purchases of a $2,500 Celine handbag and a $350 Ferragamo belt.

But instead of apologizing to the shoppers who were racially profiled, Barneys apologized to Jay Z for inconveniencing him.

“We deeply regret that these recent events have distracted from the great work of the Shawn Carter Foundation, and we offer our sincere apologies to Mister Carter,” said Barneys CEO Mark Lee.

And you scoffed when I said Jay Z was behaving like HE was the victim?

Beyonce photobombs fan

Earlier this week, Beyonce’s frenzied Stans praised her for making a young fan’s entire life by photobombing her “selfie” during a live concert in Australia. Almost immediately after a video GIF and photos of the alleged photobomb went viral online, critics and bloggers voiced doubts that the photobomb was genuine.

One blogger even pointed out the timing of the shot and how no one — not even Beyonce — could posed for a photo in 2 seconds while in mid-yodel.

When the Beyonce photobombing pandemonium reached critical mass online, the fan in the infamous selfie — 15-year-old Valentina — finally stepped forward to admit the whole thing was staged.

Ciara Future Kim Kardashian ring

A loyal reader wrote in suggesting that Ciara’s fiancé, rapper Future was the phone bidder who purchased Kim Kardashian’s 15-carat engagement ring for $749,000 at a recent auction. A closer inspection of the two rings reveals that they are one and the same.

I am not surprised that Ciara would insist upon owning a fabled piece of Hollywood lore. It would certainly boost her ego to know that the ring she is wearing brought such bad luck to Kim’s marriage. Kardashian divorced NBA star Kris Humphries after only 72 days. Hopefully Ciara’s marriage to Future will last twice as long.
