Check out the before and after pics of Heidi Montag, who actually made news this week for having ten plastic surgery procedures at one time. With all the terrible news this week about Haiti, self-absorbed celebrities just seem so out of vogue in 2010. The thing that kills me here is that it looks like she actually added ten years to herself. If you read this article it can teach you a thing or two about self love which we seem to have lost in this country.

Anyway here she is in all her plastic glory below:

US space chiefs fear an employee was seeking a different kind of out-of-this-world experience in the restricted area at Kennedy Space Centre, Florida.

About 200 staff and contractors have access to the hangar, which houses the shuttle Discovery.

Six astronauts including Briton Nick Patrick are due to blast off in March. But space chiefs insisted the mission goes ahead as planned.

Shocker: Smoking Gun say Wyclef’s Charity Has ‘Funny Money’, Has Used Money To Pay for Platinum Studios Rent & Performances Services at Benefit Concerts

Source: 57th Ave

I hate to put out this story about Wyclef and Yele. But the Smoking Gun has forced my hand and it is my duty to post this story. This is not to say he is not helping with the current devastation, but the business practices are a bit shady before this tragedy. To save face Wyclef and Yele need to account for every dollar that people contributed over the last couple of days which has climbed into the millions. The official documents are on Smoking Guns Website :

via Smoking Gun

JANUARY 14–The Haiti earthquake has already triggered hundreds of thousands of donations to musician Wyclef Jean’s charitable foundation, which expects to raise upwards of $1 million a day in the disaster’s wake. However, Internal Revenue Service records show the group has a lackluster history of accounting for its finances, and that the organization has paid the performer and his business partner at least $410,000 for rent, production services, and Jean’s appearance at a benefit concert. Though the Wyclef Jean Foundation, which does business as Yele Haiti Foundation, was incorporated 12 years ago–and has been active since that time–the group only first filed tax returns in August 2009. That month, the foundation provided the IRS with returns covering calendar years 2005, 2006, and 2007–the only periods for which it has publicly provided a glimpse at its financial affairs. In 2006, Jean’s charity reported contributions of $1 million, the bulk of which came from People magazine in exchange for the first photos of a pregnant Angelina Jolie (the actress reportedly directed that the publication’s payment go to Jean’s charity, not her personally). As seen on the following pages from the foundation’s 2006 tax return, the group paid $31,200 in rent to Platinum Sound, a Manhattan recording studio owned by Jean and Jerry Duplessis, who, like Jean, is a foundation board member.

Gilbert Arenas Charged With Carrying ‘Pistol Without License’

Carrying a ‘Pistol Without License’ is what prosecutors have decided to charge Gilbert Arenas with after him and fellow teammate Javaris Crittenton drew guns on each other after a gambling dispute that was supposedly a joke. Check out below to see how another multi-millionaire athlete is going down for the count:

via Huff Post

Kenneth L. Wainstein, Arenas’ attorney, issued the below statement:

“This afternoon, Gilbert Arenas voluntarily met with federal prosecutors at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and detectives of the Metropolitan Police Department to explain the circumstances surrounding the presence of his unloaded firearms at the Verizon Center last month.

From the outset of this incident, Mr. Arenas has been fully cooperative with the investigation. He acknowledged his possession of the guns when questioned by Washington Wizards team officials; he immediately offered and relinquished the guns to Wizards security personnel; and he had me proactively reach out to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and make an immediate self-disclosure about the guns.

Cruel Hoax: American and JetBlue are not flying doctors and nurses to Haiti for free

American and JetBlue are not flying doctors and nurses to Haiti for free and even crueler than somebody spreading this vicious rumor is that these airlines are not actually doing this when their help is needed desperately.

Wyclef Jean arrives in Haiti to help with rescue and recovery after a 7.0 earthquake has devastated the island.

(CNN) — Twitter was buzzing Thursday morning with news that several airlines are flying doctors and nurses to Haiti free of charge to help with relief efforts there in the wake of Tuesday’s devastating earthquake.

The only problem: The rumors are false, an American Airlines spokesman says.

[pics] Percy Jackson & The Olympians (Posters)

Source: Latino Review

Been seeing the trailer for this movie Percy Jackson & The Olympians for a few months and for some reason I feel compelled to see it. Kinda like the Americanized version of Harry Potter. Check out posters and a description of the movie below:

It’s the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson’s Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they’re not happy: Zeus’ lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy’s mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy’s mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Raymond Joseph, Haitian Ambassador to the U.S., began his appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show by shaming Robertson and pointing out that Haiti’s freedom led to freedom across Latin America. And they weren’t they only beneficiaries from those historic events. “The U.S. was able to gain the Louisianna Territory for $15 million,” Joseph added. “That’s three cents an acre. That’s 13 states west of the Mississippi that the Haitian slaves’ revolt in Haiti provided America.”

Pat Robertson claims ‘Haiti’ is cursed and made a pact with Devil

Pat Robertson claims that ‘Haiti’ is cursed and that they made a pact with ‘the devil’. If we were to go with his logic then every tragedy known to man must be the work of the devil, because this is not the first place to suffer immense human misfortune. Listen to his full explanation for the 7.0 earthquake that may be responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths.

I wonder how many updates to his facebook he is going to be doing from inside of a jail cell. Anyway all you facebookers who were enthralled with his ‘catch me if you can’ act should send this guy some money for his lawyer because he definitely is gonna need it.

A British burglar who busted out of prison in September and kept a quasi-amusing record of his flight on Facebook has himself been busted by police. As recently as New Year’s Eve, Craig “Lazie” Lynch was in London, and broadcast that fact to his 40,000 friends: He described “watchin the London firework display surrounded by thousands of incompetent pigs.

This fat slob, always finds away to spread vicious innuendo and lies to the public. Should we ignore it and act like it does not exist? Or should we continously expose this coward and hope someone pops some oxycotin and takes him out of his misery. I say the latter.
