Seen here trying to break Obama’s hand with a handshake back in 2009 (because the Prez knows who the important people on this planet are and has to invite them to the White House), Wookie, and her Kardashian sisters have now unleashed a war on Michelle for pretty much saying them bitches are crazy and a show that pretty much gives you a Master’s degree on publicity whoring is not really appropriate for a 10 and a 13 year old. Granted, the Obamas are probably clasping their hands together in agony watching what’s going to fall down the toilet in “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant” every night, but they have a point there. The golden shower whore parade is not my favorite show either. I’m more into really classy porn.
They have allegedly responded by insulting the First Lady’s dress sense with one of the sisters reportedly calling her wardrobe ‘pretend poor’ while another said her outfits are ‘cheap suburban tack’.
‘Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are furiously dissing the First Lady,’ a ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ source told the National Enquirer.
One of the sisters reportedly said that the First Lady’s clothes were selected to ‘keep voters on a budget’, according to the source.
‘They charge Michelle is ‘two-faced’, that she really worships the kind of life they lead and ‘takes every vacation she can’.’
Khloe Kardashian is said to be most offended as she had told friends that the President thought their show was great after she met him at the White House in 2009 at a function with her Lakers basketball husband Lamar Odom, reported the Enquirer.
In a surprise move, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver look to be terminating their marriage. They announced their separation late yesterday.
“This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us,” the duo said in a joint statement to the Los Angeles Times.
“After a great deal of reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision. We are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship.”
Shriver moved out of their Brentwood mansion a few weeks ago.
“We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives,” the couple adds. “We consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment.”
“We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”
Obviously this begs the question: How long had they been unhappy?
When Schwarzenegger ran for governor of California in 2003, the politically bipolar couple – the actor being a Republican and Maria being the niece of John F. Kennedy – faced down reports that he had groped a number of women in his career.
Shriver, who pressed pause on her career at NBC News to be the first lady of California, stood by her man and he governed the Golden State from 2004-2011.
Shortly after that, though, it’s apparently kaput for them.
Since leaving Sacramento, Arnold has appeared poised to jump right back into the biz, lending his inimitable accent to a new animated series called The Governator and dropping hints that he’s mulling another Terminator flick.
He also went to Cannes to receive the Legion D’Honneur.
Shriver took their oldest son on a tour of East Coast colleges and then traveled to the Bahamas in April. So they may have drifted apart long ago.
President Obama sat down for a talk with Oprah Winfrey yesterday (it will air on her show Monday) and discussed the controversy over his birthplace.
Focused on Obama’s birth certificate, or lack thereof (he released it this week), the “birther” movement questioned his citizenship and eligibility for office.
Typical of our Commander-in-Chief, he laughed it off.
Obama looked relaxed as he said of the birth certificate controversy: “Can I just say I was there, so I knew. I knew I had been born. I remember it.”
Barack can joke about “birthers” … at least a little.
First Lady Michelle Obama, sitting by her husband’s side, raised her hands and said: “He was born here!” But clearly they only find it funny to a point.
President Obama went on to lambast the critics of his birthplace as “carnival barkers going around trying to get attention instead of solving problems”.
He added: “Two weeks ago a huge debate was initiated around where our budget needs to go and during the course of this debate, where I gave a speech and the Republicans voted on their proposal, the biggest news was this birth certificate thing.”
Obama’s birth certificate confirms he was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.
The controversy had been reignited, in large part, by Donald Trump stoking the flames. Trump was also critical of Obama for not releasing his college transcripts, and doubting whether Obama had the grades to get into Harvard.
This triggered allegations of racism against Trump, which he denies.
What do you think? Can we now put this behind us?
Tell us: Is Obama a natural-born U.S. citizen?
The year 2010 has only just begun, but it is shaping up to be the best year ever for Fox’s hit show ‘Glee.’ The show has already won a SAG award and Emmy this season, so what could be an even higher honor you may ask? How about singing at the White House for the President and First family.
It turns out that along with the rest of America, Malia and Sasha Obama are huge fans of the musical comedy. Not only do the girls love the show, but so does the First Lady. Michelle Obama requested the cast to come sing at the White House Easter Egg Roll, and the cast couldn’t be happier to accept.
Camila Alves leaves a pet store in Malibu on Monday (November 2) with a new furry friend – a rabbit!
The 27-year-old mama-to-be, who’s due in late December/early January, had help from a store employee as they headed to Camila’s car with the bunny and dog food for the McConaughey family’s pup, BJ.
Cam and longtime love Matthew McConaughey were spotted out this past week in New York for Game 1 of the World Series and weren’t the only celebs there.
First Lady Michelle Obama, Jill Biden and Kate Hudson watched the Series unfold – unfortunately, the Yankees were crushed 6-1 in the first game. Better luck next time!
I’ve got a message for First Lady Michelle Obama and women in general; and if you are a woman please read carefully. Men are people too. I’m really tired of this ‘women’ do everything talk. You could have said this 40 years ago, but in today’s agenda based society it’s getting old.
Women can’t proclaim in one voice they are equal to men and in the other claim they do everything. Look at President Obama’s wife Michelle. In a speech to representatives of “Women’s Chamber of Commerce” and “National Council of Negro Women” she proclaims, “Women are the ones to do it,” in reference to taking care of families needs from family illness to check-books.
Before I whip out the cute quips like, “What data does she have to support this?” I’d like to discuss rationally why are men so crapped on? Seriously. Walk a mile in our shoes. Oh sure we can go out and play football or chop down a tree then hang out with the guys and talk macho BS over a beer, and all that other stereotypical nonsense but god forbid anyone let alone a women recognize a man as a functional family member or decent human being.
I know, I’ve been through it, and I go through it. I had someone use the ‘gender’ card in the same way people use the ‘race’ card to further their agenda.
Meanwhile we men are expected to just ‘take it’ otherwise any response or form of dissension WILL be labeled as hostile. It’s a great gig for women in today’s modern world.
As we men read this tripe in the papers or see it on the news and we bite our tongues. We have no choice. To speak up is to be “chauvinistic.” I’m betting by the time you are done reading this if you are woman, you’ll call me a chauvinist … without merit.
It’s as if we men don’t even exist. Shut up and take it is our lot. Our sole purpose is to cater to women without being recognized as equals or mutual partners.
Now I don’t mean to pick on First Lady Obama, I’m sure she means well but she is falling into this same trap every woman with a microphone or speaking outlet that is offered; which is to blame a man in reverse by claiming women are oppressed or do more, or have it harder, or just plain anything that minimizes a man.
Look, we men get it! Women are wonderful! Women work hard! Women are the most beautiful of god’s creations too. Now please stop! If you want to make a point, don’t make it by claiming ‘you are a woman’ therefore you deserve something more than the rest of us.
You can’t have women like Megan Fox out there telling the world women have all the power because they have vagina’s in one breath then have countless women’s groups claiming women are oppressed and need a leg up. I mention Megan Fox but this has been said by many other women. Do you see countless men’s groups exclusive to supporting only men? At best you can find a few. There are entire web sites dedicated to slandering MEN.
There are few support groups for men but at the rate we are going, there will be more. Then what? You’ll have this gender divide not unlike the racial divides that plague much of the world today.
If anything women have an advantage over men and YOU KNOW IT. Women can AND DO use both brains and sexuality to get to the top. I won’t bother with examples, all you really need to do is open a paper, magazine, turn on the TV, or browse the Internet and that point is self-evident.
God made men and women different. We can celebrate our differences or we can create negative energy based on them by claiming our gender is in some way ‘oppressed’. Because mark my words, if this keeps up then men will have this right and exploit it in years to come as we will be the sexual minority.
Women have fought the good fight or equality. You have it. You are superior in the work force, especially in the white collar sector. You can go into some offices and not even see a single man employed there. There are women in every job imaginable. There are more ‘women’s shows on TV with more women broadcasters — even in sports broadcasting and there seems no end to where women can be found. We have women astronauts, women corporate heads, women star athletes, and on and on and on. Do you think men do see the woman’s agenda being jammed down our throats?
I’m tired of seeing women in one breath ask for more while they are getting more and in the other breath claiming they are oppressed because they work so hard. You wanted to work hard, OK you got it. The old saying rings true here: Be careful what you ask for. You may get it.
In my own marriage I did countless house upgrades and repairs from flooring (carpet and tiling) to wiring, building walls, the list is truly daunting. I even kept a garden. Let’s not forget scrubbing toilets, doing laundry and house cleaning. I supported the family with additional lines of credit etc… Now imagine another married guy right now that does all this (and there are countless), reading yet another article like the one with Mrs. Obama claiming women “do it all.” How do you think this man feels?
OK, is he wound up about it? No. But in his mind he metaphorically rolls his eyes. We (men) all do. It’s like when a man looks back on his life through photos and wonders… why am I absent in so many family photos? Because I took them all. …Talk about sacrifices men make.
The other day I saw baseball game on TV where a father caught a foul ball, handed it to his three year old whom immediately tossed it over the rail from the upper deck. He did what any father would do, hugged his child. However this was a major news story as if men were some sort of wild animals brought in from the woods exhibiting almost human behavior as TV celebrated a kind and loving father. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they made the news and media shows, but I have a surprise for the news and world around us. Men do this ALL THE TIME. For every one guy that you see in the news doing something ugly, there are 1000 other men out there doing much better. Yet somehow men are still Neanderthals and women are so much smarter. Case in point, the TV commercial where the guy stands helplessly by his wife outside the car as she shows him how to open a baby stroller by pressing a single button. Yes, and we’ve never changed a diaper either or washed a dish.
I’ve raised two boys. Both from diapers and I was the parent in both cases that got up through the night for feedings and diaper changes. Did I ever get a news broadcast for being a super father (let alone husband)? Of course not, nor did I expect to. I did what was NATURAL.
Worst of all, don’t go insisting you keep the family check book then later take credit for being the only one that did it. If you volunteer for a task, then sure you can own that task but don’t pretend no one else was willing to do it.
In closing, women are not oppressed. At least not to the point they need to use it any more to further what amounts to existing STANDARD rights or needs. And I’m sorry Mrs. Obama, women don’t do everything. Men do plenty and we do exist, in fact you wouldn’t have the platform to speak on now if it wasn’t for the man in your life who just so happens to be President.
And ladies… just like there is a black President today, there will one day be a female President whom men will vote for while ‘women’ will only vote for because she is a woman. Don’t think we men won’t see the big picture along the way.
Japan’s incoming first lady, Miyuki Hatoyama, has written a memoir, called Very Strange Things I’ve Encountered, in which she recounts a close encounter she had twenty years ago. She says, “While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO, and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place, and it was really green.”
Hatoyama says that her husband, Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, believes the experience was real. This isn’t the first outlandish claim Hatoyama has made. Last year, she told a British TV show that she met a Japanese Tom Cruise in a previous life, and she engages in a practice called “eating the sun,” a ritual where she scoops the energy from the sun into her mouth with her raised arms.
Hundreds of ‘highly intimate’ images of Carla Bruni and an ex-lover have been stolen during a burglary in Paris.Police fear they could now be made public, overshadowing the French First Lady’ s official trip to Spain with her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy.The photographs and videos were taken during 41-year-old Miss Bruni’s affair with philosopher Raphaël Enthoven – the father of her child, Aurélien, eight.
Thieves broke into the flat of actor Julien Enthoven, who is Raphaël’s younger brother.Raphaël is believed to have entrusted the pictures to his 27-year-old brother because he did not want them to embarrass his new partner – or Mr Sarkozy, said a detective working on the case.‘The thieves appeared to know exactly what they were looking for – taking highly intimate prints, a camera full of further images, videos, and numerous computer files,’ said the source.
‘They broke into Mr Enthoven’s flat in Rue Dauphine, in the sixth arrondissement, on Sunday night, smashing a window in the sitting room which looks out on to the courtyard.‘Nobody was at home at the time, and nothing else was taken.’Police now fear that thieves could take advantage of Miss Bruni’s status as an international sex symbol by selling the pictures for hundreds of thousands of pounds.
May as well call them new BFF’s. Ellen DeGeneres announced on Thursday night (March 20) that she’ll finally get her wish and be on the cover of “O” Magazine. The 51-year-old talk show host has been trying to get on the cover of Oprah’s magazine.
It’s been a topic that has come up during her show for weeks! Oprah made a guest appearance on Friday’s taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about “the fantastic idea.”
Ellen first broke the news on her twitter page saying, “Oprah just asked me to be on the cover of “O” magazine!” People are really Twittering like crazy. It’s the new Facebook!
To make things official, Oprah made a guest appearance on Friday’s taping of the Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about “the fantastic idea.” Oprah doesn’t share the cover of her magazine with just anyone. The only other person to share the cover of ‘O’ magazine was First Lady Michelle Obama. Watch Ellen break the news to Oprah and her reaction:
