John Wayne Rogers

A judge in Seminole County, in Sanford, Florida -- the city where Trayvon Martin was killed -- returned 2 guns to a blind man who shot another man in the chest, killing him, after a long drinking session in March 2012, The Orlando Sentinel reports.

The dead man was shot "once in the chest with a .308 Remington assault rifle from a distance of 18 inches or less."

Jason Collins in a Nets uniform

The Brooklyn Nets signed 35-year-old bench rider Jason Collins to a 10-day contract on Sunday. According to sources, President Obama called in a favor to his good friend, minority team owner and rapper Jay Z.

Tamika Fuller

Eviction records on file at the courthouse seem to suggest a motive behind Tamika Fuller's demands for upfront cash of $7,500 from rapper Chris "Ludacris" Bridges. Let's just say that Fuller has a history of having trouble keeping a personal residence based on the public records I've obtained. I could go into greater detail, but it's Sunday, and I must save something for my next post.

LeBron James broken nose

NBA MVP LeBron James may have fractured his nose when he was blocked by Serge Ibaka during a drive to the basket late in the 4th quarter of the Miami Heat vs Oklahmoa City Thunder in Oklahoma last night. The Heat easily defeated the Thunder 103-81.

James, 29, was actually hit twice by Ibaka as he drove to the basket for a dunk to cap off his 33 points in 33 minutes night. The NBA refs did not call either foul. This is typical of the biased NBA referees who routinely look the other way when LeBron is attacked in the paint by opposing teams.

Beauvais, a 47-year-old mother of twin boys, says she is shocked by what she has seen so far.

"[F]or me[,] now, there’s so many ways to be sexy without being overt about it," the Haitian native told Hello Beautiful. "As I get older, I still want to be sexy, but I want to do it in a different way. I want to do it in a way that’s more classy.
