This Week in the News

Happy Friday!  This week has been a pretty interesting week.  I am truly sad about the earthquake and tsunami that has hit Japan. I will pray for everyone affected by these events, and I hope you will do the same. 

Earlier this week, twin sisters Chardee and Charron Hampton gave birth to baby girls on the same day…in the same hospital…across the hall from each other…2 hours apart.  Congrats to the new babies and their family!  Both sisters are engaged and are contemplating a double wedding. 

It appears there’s about to a lockout of NFL players.  The players union and the owners have until 11:59 pm tonight to come up with a compromise.  From reading some of the comments on CNN.com, I have to say I’m in agreement with some of the people.  First off, these owners are greedy MFers…You want to DOUBLE the amount you take off top, but want your players to get paid the same thing?!?!   Honestly, the people who are really losing out are the fans, and quietly they’ve been losing out.  The NFL is a $9 BILLION industry.  Most of the true fans who want to attend games and support their favorite team can’t because tickets are so darn expensive.   This is just a case of people being greedy and looking out for self, but isn’t that America anyway?  What needs to be done is these owners need to donate some of this money to these victims in Japan.  But that’s another story for another day…

Felecia Pearson, better known as “Snoop” from “The Wire”, was arrested in a raid in Balitmore conducted by DEA agents and the Baltimore PD yesterday.   Apparently Snoop is no stranger to not abiding by the law, as she was charged with second-degree murder as a teenager and was also arrested in 2008.  In America, everyone is (supposed to be) presumed innocent until found guilty, so we’ll just end this story here.

Other minor events that happened this week include the break-up of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Charlie Sheen’s home got invaded, and Gabrielle Union went in on why she’ll never be a reality star Basketball Wife.   I hope you all have a great weekend!  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
