Is Tameka Foster Raymond broke? I know that sounds crazy since she's in the process of divorcing her ATM machine, er, her husband Usher Raymond IV. But why is she on Twitter trying to scam the public? Is it because the prenup only guarantees her enough cash to live comfortably, but not to live the lifestyle she's accustomed to?

Sandra,

Tameka Foster is posting tweets requesting donations for "Lost Ones Foundation" (see attached screenshot). She says there will be a camp for girls for 1 week starting Dec. 9 for girls age 12-18. I thought to myself....kids are in school during that week, so how are they going to attend a camp?

I went to the website for the supposed charity and see that it is Tameka's site and it is very nondescript. I went to the Secretary of State's website and looked up the organization. It is registered to her as of 2008. Click here The status says active/nocompliance. I called the SOS at 404-656-2817 to ask what the noncompliance means. I was told that a $55 fee was past due.

Sandra...this has SCAM written all over it. Tameka is trying to trick ppl out of money to use for herself. There is no way that a 1 week camp for girls age 12-18 can be held during the week of 12/9 (which is a Wednesday) for young kids. All schools are still in session during this time. Sounds like she is desperate for some quick cash.

This is pathetic!

KM

Update:

Tameka is telling people her "camp" is an "overnight camp" and that the location of the camp "moves around." The problem is the days that the camp is supposed to be held are on school days. So obviously this is a scam. Aren't camps held during the Summer?

I did a double take when I saw this magazine cover on another blog. I had to make sure that I was seeing the words "Life & Stye" instead of "OK! magazine", which reportedly shelled out $300,000 in cold cash to Khloe Kardashian and her mama for the exclusive rights to Khloe and Lamar Odom's wedding.

Yet there she is laughing it up on the cover of Life & Style magazine in her white Vera Wang wedding dress -- and OK! magazine's editors are not amused!

Not only did Life & Style get the wedding dress money shot, but so did X17online.com's paparazzi as well as numerous helicopter bound paparazzi in the skies above the Beverly Hills mansion where Khloe's quickie marriage to NBA star Lamar Odom took place on Sunday.

According to ContactMusic, the magazine bosses are furious at Khloe for allowing her wedding to turn into a 3-ring media circus. But that's what media whores DO, and OK! magazine should have already known that!

No doubt, the Kardashians made a few side deals in addition to the one they had with OK! mag. At this point, Khloe Kardashian needs to stack as much loot as she can because her sister Kim Kardashian -- the other media whore in the family -- wants her spotlight back.

In the meantime, OK! mag is out $300,000 and clear pictures of Khloe in her wedding dress are all over the Internets.

A guest at the wedding told OK! mag, "There were so many helicopters overhead, you couldn't hear the vows. The Kardashian family had assured OK! the ceremony would be at a secluded location, but in the end it was a circus."

Speaking of magazine covers, First Lady Michelle O covers Prevention magazine this month. Inside she says, "Life really gets good when you're 40 or 50." I bet she'll sing a different tune when she starts going through menopause!

More Hope and Change for you Kool Aid drinkers who embrace Barack Obama's unconstitutional Socialist policies. Drink up kiddies!:

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."

A few celebs and ball players turned out to attend Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's sham made-for-TV wedding yesterday. It's a shame that public figures have to resort to publicity stunts to stay relevant now because they have no known talent. The bride wore a Vera Wang dress and the groom wore Armani. OK! magazine has the exclusive on the wedding pics. I hope those pics are worth the $300,000 the mag shelled out for that exclusive.

One thing I've learned from experience as a nurse and working with drug addicts is they are extremely unpredictable and untrustworthy. These people are major manipulators and tend to fabricate lies for attention. You can't believe a word that comes out of their mouths.

Which is why I ignore celebs (Whitney) who claim to have kicked their drug habits. Once a druggie, always a druggie.

When I heard about the Mackenzie Phillips rape/incest interview with Oprah (who believes every crazy thing these celebs tell her), I knew Mackenzie was making the whole thing up.

According to her stepmother, Michelle Williams, who was married to Mackenzie's dad -- the one Mac claims raped her when she was 19 -- Mackenzie has a history of lying and manipulative behavior to get what she wants (drugs). I also wondered if there was a book deal or movie deal in the works. Sure enough, Mackenzie has a book coming out just in time to keep fueling her drug habit.

Showbiz411's Roger Friedman also suspected Mackenzie was lying and reached out to Michelle Phillips who confirmed Mackenzie is lying to sell copies of her book.

“She told me, then she called me back and said, ‘You know I’m joking.' I said it wasn’t funny. Mackenzie said, ‘I guess we have different senses of humor.’ John was a bad parent, and a drug addict. But fucking his daughter? If she thinks it’s true, why isn’t she with a good psychiatrist on a couch? I think it’s unconscionable that Oprah would let her do her show. I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show."

"Mackenzie has a lot of mental illness. She’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years. She was arrested for heroin and coke just recently. She did ‘Celebrity Rehab’ and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed.”

The whole thing is also ridiculous. After the entire pregnant male fiasco, I don't know why people continue to waste their time watching Oprah's show.

They say a sucker is born every minute, and there are plenty of con artists ready and willing to take advantage of them.

Take LaToya Jackson, for instance. She's facing foreclosure on her Las Vegas condo and her finances are in dire straits. Yet she's forking over thousands of dollars a week to a psychic who claims to be able to communicate with pop icon Michael Jackson from beyond the grave.

According to The Globe, LaToya spoke with many psychics before settling on one nut because she knew personal secrets about Michael that only the family knew.

From Pop Crunch blog:

“This woman psychic who lives in L.A. told La Toya some very personal details about Michael that only close family members would know,” the tattle continued. “La Toya knew right then that she was indeed in contact with Michael.”

"Not only does she go to the psychic’s house, but sometimes in the middle of the night when she wakes up thinking of her brother, she knows she can pick up the phone, no matter what time it is and be linked to him via seer.”

“He also communicates he’s constantly watching over his kids, Prince, Paris, Blanket, and sees they’re incredibly loved by their grandmother, Katherine, and the rest of the family,” the Globe source added. “Having this psychic connection to Michael is tremendously reassuring for her.”

Maybe LaToya should ask the psychic exactly what took place in Michael's bedroom the morning he died. That bit of info would help the DA's office tremendously in their investigation into his murder.

Earlier I told you about a popular video streaming site that has been accused of fabricating video views in exchange for cash.

Independent artists have long put the site on blast for charging up-and-coming artists thousands of dollars for "packages" to post their videos, then artificially inflating their videos views.

Well, now rapper 50 Cent has put the site on blast in this new video for using a keyboard trick to inflate hits. Fiddy said:

"So if you hear artists talking about they hot right now 'cause they on Worldstar and got a bunch of hits... they could of just bought a package..."

Fiddy might have been referring to music videos such as the one by Playaz Circle which gained over 2 million hits while videos by Rihanna and Jay Z garnered less views.

California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling for a full investigation into the California chapters of ACORN.

The governor sent a letter to California Attorney General Jerry Brown yesterday urging him to investigate ACORN's California activities. In the letter, he referred to "news stories regarding the ACORN organization that have concerned me greatly."

Schwarzenegger was motivated to send the letter after viewing a video released by BigGovernment.com showing a San Diego worker giving tips on how to smuggle underage girls into the country.

ACORN has come under fire recently after workers in numerous cities were caught on tape giving tax advice to Conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles of BigGovernment.com who posed as a prostitute and pimp.

Barack Obama has strong ties to the organization dating back to the early 90s. As a Chicago attorney, he once represented ACORN in court. And last year he donated $800,000 to the group to help him "get out the vote" during his campaign for president.

In the video series, ACORN workers were overly enthusiastic about helping the Caucasian couple circumvent the law and evade taxes, but low-income blacks -- who ACORN is supposed to represent -- complained that ACORN workers virtually ignored them:

Outside the Sacramento office, Ruby Bradley said she was highly skeptical of the organization. She said she once applied for help with a housing loan with ACORN, but never got a response.
"I think it was poor business," Bradley said.

That complaint was echoed by Demario Anthony of Sacramento, who said his aunt's application was ignored.
"She stopped dealing with them," Anthony said. "We asked what happened, and she said she didn't want to talk about it." Read more...

I touched on this subject yesterday, but I will repeat it today for those of you who missed it: Obama's Health Care Reform is not free. In fact, young adults, ages 19 to 26, will be expected to "dilute" the expense of covering older people by buying the coverage whether you want it or not.

Barack Obama has made this clear, but some people aren't listening. So pay attention to the following from the Washington Post:

Drafting young adults into any health-care reform package is crucial to paying for it. As low-cost additions to insurance pools, young adults would help dilute the expense of covering older, sicker people. ...this group could even wind up paying disproportionately hefty premiums -- effectively subsidizing coverage for their parents.

If ObamaCare passes, all of us will be expected to pay for health insurance or incur a penalty of $975. According to the WaPo, paying the premium for ObamaCare, which is expected to cost more than $100 per month, would be more expensive than just paying the penalty.

Understand that even if you don't have a job, you will be forced to pay for something that most of you don't need (right now) because you're young and healthy. But if you don't pay for health insurance, you will be fined a hefty fee.

Welcome to Socialism folks!

A scatterbrained ACORN worker in San Bernardino gives prostitution tax evasion tips to a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp (so what else is new?). But as an added bonus, the ACORN worker, who admits to committing every illegal act under the sun, confesses to murdering her husband (yea, right). She sounds just a little grandiose and delusional.

Cheronda Guyton was living the high life in a $12 million 3,800 square foot beachfront house in the exclusive enclave of Malibu County. The home Guyton and her family resided in was the scene of many lavish galas that lasted well into the night.

Neighbors wondered how a Wells Fargo bank VP could afford the beachfront property's $60,000 a month rent on her salary -- even with bonuses.

The problem is the Senior Vice President in charge of foreclosed properties at Wells Fargo, wasn't renting or buying the posh home.

The previous owners, who lost money in the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, turned the home over to Wells Fargo bank to pay off a higher debt.

The bank agreed not to sell the home so the owners could align their debts and get it back. Guyton and her family moved in shortly thereafter.

According to the LA Times, Wells Fargo last week announced Guyton's termination for the executive's alleged personal use of the home owned by the bank.

Wells Fargo announced it would "take decisive action" against any employee "who may have violated Wells Fargo's policies." The bank in a statement also said it regretted "the disruption to the neighboring property owners since these allegations were made."

Many real estate agents contacted by The Times expressed surprise and said they had not heard of similar incidents.

An agent with Keller Williams Realty, told The Times she was "appalled" by the alleged conduct and what appeared to be an obvious abuse of a position.

But one agent, Farrell "Burt" Bakman of Coldwell Banker in Beverly Hills, believes Wells Fargo knew about the illegal home squatting. He said he saw no problem with a lender using a property "as some sort of a bonus" for their executives.

"It makes sense," he said. "It's thinking outside of the box for Wells Fargo. They just hold on to it as an asset."

According to Hotair.com, the Senate has voted to cut off federal funding to the criminal enterprise, ACORN. This move comes after BigGovernment.com's explosive hidden-camera expose's into the fraudulent activities of the community organizing group that has been under investigation for years for voter registration fraud.

In 2008 Barack Obama donated $800,000 to ACORN, whose 400,000 members helped "get out the vote" in many urban areas using deceptive means such as registering dead people to vote.

Obama worked for the organization in the early 90s, and even helped train the members in community organizing tactics. The photo above of Obama training ACORN members was scrubbed from ACORN's website before the election.

After two videos hit the Internet last week, and one video released yesterday showing ACORN workers in Baltimore, NY and DC giving tax evasion advice to a woman posing as a prostitute, Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to strip ACORN of all federal funding last night. The Senate passed the amendment 83-7.

And not a moment too soon: another damning video is set to hit the Internet today. According to Fox Channel's Glenn Beck, this video will "blow your mind."

So far there's been no word from Obama, who as a Chicago attorney once represented this criminal organization in court. And together with Nancy Pelosi, Obama earmarked $8 BILLION in federal funding to ACORN after bringing the group in as a "partner" in the 2010 Census count.

On Friday, the Census bureau moved to cut ties with ACORN citing the organization's questionable history.

Remember the couple who posed as a fake pimp and prostitute in order to get tax advice from ACORN workers in Baltimore and DC? Well, the Brooklyn, NY office was hit next, and the workers there gave the same advice "Don't say you're a prostitute...," "Honesty is not going to get you the house...," "You can't say what you do for a living."

Mayor Bloomberg spoke out on the controversy today.

"Prostitution is illegal in this state and I don't know why they would -- why an organization like ACORN, who's trying to encourage voter turnout and voter registration, why they're getting involved in any of that stuff," Bloomberg said. "But clearly it's not appropriate and they shouldn't have been doing it. Whether they broke a law or not I don't know. You'll have to talk to the legal (authorities)."

There are other videos yet to come! ACORN can no longer continue to make excuses for their criminal enterprise. Remember this is the organization that Barack Obama trained as a senator. He also represented this group in court as their attorney. Obama and the Dems earmarked $8 billion in the stimulus plan for ACORN.

After the first video hit the Internet last week, the Commerce Dept. cut all ties with ACORN for the 2010 census.

Barack Obama can no longer continue to give this criminal enterprise your tax dollars to operate! Expect a press release from ACORN firing the NY workers in a addition to the four that were fired last week.

In a move that's sure to anger the Big Cahoona (pictured above), the Census bureau cut ties with the community organizing group ACORN yesterday after the group's criminal activity was brought to light in hidden camera videos that hit the Internets earlier this week.

As most of you know, Barack Hussein Obama trained ACORN members in community organization tactics when he was an Illinois state senator.

What you probably don't know is, after Obama was elected president, his chief of staff, Rham Emanuel, attempted to seize control of the census bureau from the Commerce Department, but the power grab was shot down after a public outcry.

Shady Obama then announced ACORN as a "national partner" in the 2010 census. Obama and the Dems also funneled over $8 billion of your tax dollars to ACORN in the last stimulus package.

Part of the loot would have gone to hiring staff and training volunteers to "collect" census data in 2010.

The Democrats (and Obama) were counting on unscrupulous ACORN members to tamper with the collection "data" that would magically inflate the number of Democrats in urban districts and give the Democrats control over Congress in 2010.

But that won't be happening now, thanks to a very brave man who heads the Census bureau.

Robert M. Groves, Census director sent a letter to the National Headquarters of ACORN yesterday informing the group that it was severing all ties for the 2010 census work.

Citing "sufficient concern" from the public over past investigations against ACORN for multiple acts of voter registration fraud, Groves wrote:

“Unfortunately, we no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your many local offices. For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership."

Meanwhile two more ACORN workers were fired in Washington DC Friday after they were caught on tape advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to evade federal taxes and set up an illegal brothel in the city.

Less than 24 hours earlier, ACORN fired two Baltimore city workers who were also caught on hidden camera giving the same couple tips to evade taxes and smuggle underage girls into the country to be exploited as sex workers.

Not surprisingly, HotAir.com has learned that Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office is initiating an investigation -- not into ACORN's criminal activities -- but into a possible eavesdropping violation against filmmaker James O'Keefe (the fake pimp) because the audio portion of his videos "could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law."

Coincidentally, the State Attorney is a Democrat who donated the maximum amount to Obama's presidential campaign last year.

You can tell what's in a woman's character by the way she steals other women's men, I mean by the way she treats others. Alicia Keys apparently has no respect for the artistic property of others because -- as Alcove explains in this video -- she has pilfered entire melodies from old school artists in the past without giving proper credit.

Unlike lyrics and audio samples (loops, beats, etc.), which are protected under the copyright law, melodies (humming and harmonizing) are not protected. We already know by her sneaky ways that AK is not an honest, right-minded woman. So we're not surprised to hear that she has ripped off yet another melody -- this time from the great Loleatta Holloway for Whitney Houston's new single "Million Dollar Bill" which AK wrote.

Excellent video of Obama campaign clips combined with a recent Air America radio broadcast that breaks down the Obama Deception and his secret backroom deals with the big pharmaceutical companies.

Obama campaigned on the promise that he would put an end to "the game playing" in Washington and he promised to negotiate with the big drug companies live on C-Span to lower drug costs for Americans.

But in the secret closed door negotiations, the drug industry promised Obama a future savings of $80 billion over 10 years as long as Obama doesn't negotiate to lower drug prices or import cheaper drugs from Canada. The so-called "savings" to Americans amounts to only $8 billion a year or 2% cost savings per drug! You read that correctly: that's 2% savings -- not 20%!

Additionally, Obama cut a deal with the drug companies to provide $150 million in free advertising to help push his socialist health care reform so his Chicago cronies (including his advisor David Axelrod) could reap millions, if not billions in profits from co-ops and gov't run HMOs.

So Obama once again broke a promise to go after the drug industry and to hold meetings with the drug companies "live on C-Span" so the American people could watch the negotiations unfold on television.

Is Obama the biggest con artist in presidential history? Yes he is!

I already knew that professional gold digger Tameka Foster ex-Glover ex-Raymond didn't write that article for Huffington Post. That's why I didn't waste my time posting it. Unlike the gullible public, I knew that Tameka wasn't articulate enough to string together a coherent paragraph unless she copied and pasted it from somewhere -- or someone else helped her write it.

From BV Buzz By Jawn Murray:

When Tameka Foster posted the blog entry "She's Pretty for a Dark-Skinned Girl..." on The Huffington Post, both celebrities and regular women alike celebrated her blog message on Twitter and Facebook.

Unbeknownst to them, while they were saluting Usher Raymond's soon-to-be ex-wife's essay on skin complexion, author Aisha Curry, who wrote the book 'Pretty For a Black Girl' (AuthorHouse/$10.49) read the piece and felt outraged that her tome had been apparently been lifted and used by Foster, who passed the work off as her own.
Read Foster's full essay here.

"My heart sank into my stomach. All the hard work, all the sleepless nights I had endured was playing back in my head as I read this article written by a woman I didn't even know," Curry told BV Buzz. "Why did I feel so connected to this article? Suddenly, it came to me. It was my work! It was my work, my voice, but in her words. I was frozen. Tears began rolling down my face as I read line after line after line. I couldn't believe it. The idea that someone could gain notoriety from an issue that I first brought to the forefront is mindboggling. People were praising her for tackling an issue that had never been exposed. Hello?!? I wrote the book on it and started it years ago. The only difference between her article and my book is she used 'dark-skinned' and I used 'Black.'" READ MORE...

When I saw this message posted on director/playwright Tyler Perry's website, I just assumed he was pissed because one of his former tricks outed him the airline lost his monogram Louis Vuitton luggage. But that's not the case. Read on to see what's got Tyler so riled up:

I'm back from Vegas and had a great time at the Hoodies, but I gotta give a quick WARNING to all my Facebookers, Twitters and TylerPerry board members: I'm so pissed right now!

I'm sitting in my den writing, minding my own business, when I get an email from my staff saying that someone put an ad up on Craigslist saying that I was casting a movie in L.A., and in order to be considered for this (FAKE) Tyler Perry movie, you have to join their club for $29.95. THAT IS A LIE, don't fall for it. These folks are trying to rip you off. I hate for people to prey on people's dreams and hopes. Why don't people get a job and stop trying to steal folks' hard-earned money....Ugh, that makesme mad; let me breathe.

Okay listen my dear folks, if anyone asks you to pay in order to do an audition or pay a fee to join a club to put you in a movie, please don't fall for it. That's not how it works in this business. It's free to audition for any film. I'm calling my lawyers about these THIEVES! You're my best help here, so please do me a favor and send this out to all your followers and friends.

Thanks,

Wow! :eek: Even the mainstream media is exposing Beyonce for the fraud that she is. A NY Post writer goes in on Bey in a blog posted today.

The writer even calls Beyonce "a little sneaky wig-wearing... bitch." Ouch! I wonder if the writer reads my blog? I'd like to think I had a small part in opening her eyes.

From NY Post Blog:

Call Jim Carey because he may have competition if he ever wants to make "Liar Liar 2." It looks like Beyonce is having a bit of a hard time telling the truth.

Ms. Jay-Z has been called out by two different R&B ladies for not writing songs she claims are hers. According to Rap-Up magazine, Chrisette Michele revealed that Beyonce's hit single "Ego" was originally meant for her own album "Epiphany" but she decided to hand it over to the Queen B. And here is the shady part: The track is credited to producer Elvis Williams, Beyonce Knowles and Harold Lilly ... not vocal Goddess Chrisette.

You little sneaky wig-wearing diva. All it takes is a few measly scraps of your millions, and these folks are happy to give you a good track.

I mean you ARE Beyonce ... throw a dog a bone, bitch.

Thanks to loyal reader Yasmine for bringing this story to our attention. This is a great example of our people taking advantage of the system. This is why there is no more Welfare for needy families. The widespread systemic abuse by hoodrats claiming other people's kids for government benefits killed all that.

I am from Maryland and read the Baltimore Sun every morning. This morning there was a rather disturbing article and I guess it bothered me so much because the family is Black. Sgt. David Battle, who is a triple amputee, and his wife Lakeisa seemed to have committed some kind of fraud! I am unsure if it’s fraud but this is what it smells like. A nonprofit group that builds homes for wounded veterans built them an $800,000 home in Pasadena, designed to accommodate his needs.

They were set to have a ceremony today and unfortunately that will not be happening because they already own, not one but 2 homes in Georgia. Mrs. Battle took an Army payment of $100,000 to acquire the properties and failed to disclose that they were the owners—she said on record that her cousin owned one of the homes, which was a bold faced LIE! So, the misdeeds were disclosed and confirmed when media from Georgia were confused about the ceremony and contacted officials in Maryland—this is where it was found out that the battles were going to have a ceremony in Georgia on Saturday for a home that was built for them there.

This is one of the main reasons why I won't be tuning in to Bravo's Real Hot Mess of Atlanta's 2nd season. The entire 2nd season can be summed up in two words: scripted cat fights. OK, that's three words, but you get my drift.

Over the weekend, one of the show's personalities, Sheree Whitfield, held a "fashion show" of sorts that was filmed by Bravo for RHOA's upcoming 2nd season.

The show supposedly featured designs by Sheree, but since we know Sheree is not a designer, we can assume that Mychal Knight or someone else with actual talent helped her out with the designs so it would seem like she was mildly successful in that field -- at least for appearance purposes on camera.

Before we go any further, I guess some of you are aware that the cast members of RHOA received a hefty raise in their paychecks this season to the tune of $168,000 each. This was due in part to the fact that the first season of RHOA trumped the other cities in the "Real Housewives" franchise. So now these chicks can floss like they are stacking a little cheez since this is probably the most loot any of them have seen in a long while. By the way, we know what cast member Dwight Eubanks spent his raise on: his new facelift was pulled so tight he could barely breathe!

So, back to the fashion show: yesterday, the AJC's reporter Rodney Ho wrote a detailed blog about a verbal spat between Sheree's "publicist" and an AJC photographer, who was so angered by the verbal exchange that he stormed out of the fashion show without taking any pictures.

Shortly after reading that blog, I received an email from someone associated with the show who apologized profusely to the attending journalists for the behavior of this so-called "publicist" who caused quite a messy scene that was duly captured from every angle by Bravo's cameras.

In the lengthy email, the author went to great pains to clarify that the "publicist" had no business being in attendance at the fashion show and that he did not represent Sheree Whitfield or anyone else.

Here's how we know that the "publicist" was planted by Bravo network to cause high drama at the fashion show, and to attract the very type of publicity that I am giving the show now: he wasn't ejected from the premises.

Anyone who has attended a REAL industry event in Atlanta -- especially one that is well-organized -- knows that no guest is allowed to disrupt the event or to "make a scene" without being thrown out on his ass unless he is co-signed by someone who organized the event. And since we know that Bravo footed the bill for the fashion show -- there you go.

Below are some excerpts from the email sent yesterday to all journalists, photographer's, bloggers, etc., who covered the fashion show -- and were unwittingly used as pawns in Bravo's game. By the way, if you feel you were harassed by the fake "publicist", but you signed that waiver that Bravo presented to you then you can't complain about being harassed on national TV:

My Journalist Friends - I am so embarassed and please accept my sincerest apology by the manner in which a "Publicist" by the name of Jonathan Clardy misrepresented himself as Sheree Whitfield's publicist and behaved as if he was involved with the fabulous She by Sheree fashion event last night.

I am so sorry for the way newsphotographer Hyosub was yelled at and dismissed by this Jonathan Clardy "Publicist" who claim to be Sheree Whitfield of BravoTV Network's Real Housewives as her publicist. I am so sorry - per Sheree Whitfield- Jonathan was not authorized whatsoever to behave as if he was Sheree's publicist and I didn't want to cause a scene or attract any further attention to the unbelievable, embarassing and stupid craziness so I just backed off. I couldn't reach newsphotog Hyosub in time to stop him from leaving.

This Jonathan Clardy publicist wanted to work so badly to be Sheree's publicist, I just let him. I did not want to fight or fuss and create further confusion with a "publicist" who conveniently, whenever BravoTV or photo ops were happening, would just act as if he is the publicist in charge... Sheree Whitfield would like to set the record again, that Jonathan Clardy is not her publicist.

This Twitter situation is getting out of hand! First, there's a fake Sandra Rose Twitter, then a fake Amber Rose Twitter pops up, and now Knaye West has a fake Twitter masquerading as him with over a million dumb asses following. Not that I put myself on the same level as a narcissist like Kanye, but I'm just sayin.

From Kanye's blog:

“I don’t have a f**king Twitter… why would I use Twitter??? I only blog 5 per cent of what I’m up to in the first place. I’m actually slow delivering content because I’m too busy actually busy being creative most of the time and if I’m not and I’m just laying on a beach I wouldn’t tell the world. Everything that Twitter offers I need less of. “The people at twitter know I don’t have a f**king Twitter so for them to allow someone to pose as me and accumulate over a million names is irresponsible and deceitful to there (sic) faithful users. Repeat… the heads of Twitter knew I didn’t have a Twitter and they have to know which accounts have high activity on them. “It’s a f**king farce and it makes me question what other so called celebrity Twitters are actually real or fake. Hey Twitter, take the so called Kanye West Twitter down now.”

Why is Johnson using his considerable fame and influence to peddle tax anticipation loans to poor people?

From HuffPo:

If you watched the NCAA basketball Final Four, you couldn't miss former Michigan State star Earvin "Magic" Johnson. He was constantly being interviewed or shown on camera.

There is another place you can find Magic Johnson: doing commercials for Jackson Hewitt's "Money Now." "Money Now" is a tax refund loan operation.

Tax refund loans (also called refund anticipation loans) are in a class of financial products marketed primarily to poor people.

Someone described tax refund loans as a payday loan guaranteed by your tax return.

That hits the nail on the head.

Like payday loans, the fees and interest rates on tax refund loans are outrageous.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the annualized interest rate for tax loans is 40% to 500%.

According to IRS data, 8.7 million people took out a tax refund loan in 2007. Of those 8.7 million who got the loans, 67% received an Earned Income Tax Credit.

The Earned Income Tax Credit is a program aimed to help the working poor. Only 17% of all taxpayers get it.

When 2/3 of the borrowers come from less than 1/5 of the population, it doesn't take a genius to see the business model. Tax refund loan vendors must view the working poor as easy pickings.

They are probably right. READ MORE...

    Investigators suspect two African immigrants slain at a Long Island condo owned by an NFL player may have been killed as revenge for an Internet scam, police said Tuesday.

    Sekou Sakor and Ansu Keita were each shot in the head sometime Thursday night at a condominium in Woodbury, N.Y., owned by Jonathan Vilma. There were no arrests.

    The New Orleans Saints linebacker and former New York Jets player was not there at the time and not believed to be involved, said New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne.

    Browne said investigators believe the victims may have been mixed up in a so-called "black money" scheme. Victims are sent e-mails saying that cash smuggled from overseas — stained black to avoid detection — can be purchased at a discount; what they receive is a trunk full of worthless paper.

    It was unclear how Sakor, 31, and Keita, 32, both originally from Liberia, ended up at Vilma's home. Sakor's body was found Friday dumped in Queens; that of Keita was found in Brooklyn.

    Browne said various members of Vilma's family had access to the condominium, located in a gated development. It had been up for sale.

    Vilma joined the Saints last season after four years with the Jets. He was the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2004.

    His agent did not immediately return a call for comment on Tuesday.

More proof that Barack Obama and his treasury secretary Tim Geithner are in bed with AIG.

Two weeks ago Barack Obama stood before America and feigned outrage at AIG for doling out millions in bonuses to executives after accepting billions in federal aide. Later it was revealed that Obama and Geithner knew about the AIG bonuses even before blessing AIG with another $30 billion of your tax dollars last month.

Now, according to CNN: One of the people named to Obama's newly formed Task Force on Tax Reform is a member of the AIG board of directors. We're not exactly sure if Obama's task force will accomplish much of anything. But we are sure that more of your tax dollars will disappear into it.

Comments Off on Obama and Geithner Knew About AIG Bonuses for Months

More proof that Barack Hussein Obama, aka George Bush II, and his Treasury Secretary Tiny Tim Geithner knew about the multi-million dollar AIG bonuses for months before giving AIG another $30 billion in federal aid just two weeks ago!

Oh, and before we forget, Obama received his own $101,322 "bonus" check from AIG.

As Obama stood before Americans in mock outrage earlier this week, you could just see his puppet strings moving. Obama responded to the AIG bonuses only after the Wall Street Journal broke the story this past Sunday. Where was his outrage when he first learned about the bonuses months ago?

From the AP:

    Cue the outrage. For months, the Obama administration and members of Congress have known that insurance giant AIG was getting ready to pay huge bonuses while living off government bailouts. It wasn't until the money was flowing and news was trickling out to the public that official Washington rose up in anger and vowed to yank the money back.

    Why the sudden furor, just weeks after Barack Obama's team paid out $30 billion in additional aid to the company? So far, the administration has been unable to match its actions to Obama's tough rhetoric on executive compensation. And Congress has been unable or unwilling to restrict bonuses for bailout recipients, despite some lawmakers' repeated efforts to do so.

    The situation has the White House and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on the defensive. The administration was caught off guard Tuesday trying to explain why Geithner had waited until last Wednesday to call AIG chief executive Edward M. Liddy and demand that the bonus payments be restructured.

MM predicts Geithner will soon go under Obama's bus wheels with the rest of the scapegoats.

Comments Off on 73 AIG Execs Got $1,000,000 Bonuses From You

UPDATE 2:

Sen. Dodd wants to tax bonuses (you mean those million-dollar bonuses weren't even taxable?) LOL!

UPDATE:

Armed guards posted outside AIG offices in Washington

Yesterday, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama feigned outrage at AIG for disbursing $160 million in bonuses to its executives after after receiving $173 BILLION in federal aid from the government.

According to online reports, the bonuses paid by AIG included $1 million in bonuses to each of 73 execs.

It's interesting that Obama didn't bother to mention his own treasury secretary Tim Geithner negotiated the billions in bailout cash for AIG in the first place. And it was Geithner who went back to the table for more cash for AIG.

Don't think this will be the last bailout for AIG either. In the coming months, AIG will receive even more bailout cash from the government. Obama will go before the cameras again to convince America that we can't allow AIG to fail... blah, blah, blah.

In the meantime, two of my friends will be laid off from their jobs next week.

I'm sure you've seen this video already, so I'm posting it to pose a question: is Nahright putting Worldstar Hip Hop on blast for artificially inflating views to boost their revenue?

More people probably saw the Blame It video on OnSMASH than on BET. 30,000 views in 12hours (since 8pm last night.)

Actual numbers^, not inflated (*cough*worldstarflipflop*cough*).
Yeah, I’m sure you got 15,000 views from one minute to the next.

Here's some background: last weekend, Sandrarose.com received an email from a Warner Bros. executive asking us to check out one of his artist's videos on WSHH. He boasted that the video garnered over 300,000 views in just 24 hours.

But oddly enough, the comments under that video were all calling out WSHH for artificially inflating the view count on that same video. Then a member of the Hip Hop Ads group on Yahoo.com noticed that when he refreshed the page, the view count for that video jumped by 30,000 views.
