The 5ive!! Top 5 Top Stories of 2011!!! [By Category]

As 2011 draws to a close, I've looked back at all the ups and downs and twists and turns this tumultuous year has brought us.  There have been so many BREAKING STORIES that we have brought you.
Some days our topics were trending all over the world.  I have picked some of the top stories that I have covered over this past year.

These are in no particular order, but some of the best gems from THE GAMUTT 2011
1.  The year of  DIVORCE  It seems that 2011 was the year for celebs to call it quits.  From Arnold and Maria to Kobe and Vanessa.  Take a look back:


#TheHighlightFactory- #AtlantaHawks defeat #TheNewjerseynets!

The Highlight Factory is back and liver than ever!  Last night the undefeated Atlanta Hawks took on the New Jersey Nets at Philips Arena! 
Atlanta knocked off New Jersey 105-98 at Philips Arena on Friday to move to 3-0 on the season.

For the first time this year the Hawks found themselves trailing, as the Nets led by as many as 5 in the first quarter.

Atlanta rallied for a 20-19 lead after one and took a 43-37 lead into halftime, thanks to Marvin Williams' buzzer beating 3-pointer from just over halfcourt.

 A high scoring third quarter (Nets 35, Hawks 33) set the stage for an exciting finish ... The Hawks pushed the lead to as many as 9 but New Jersey wouldn't go away, cutting it to 95-94 with under two minutes to play but Joe Johnson scored 7 points in the final 20 seconds (5-5 FTs) to seal it.
 Jeff Teague led the way for Atlanta with 22 points and 6 assists ... Johnson scored 21, Al Horford 12 and Williams 11 ... Zaza Pachulia tallied 11 points and 8 rebounds in 23 spirited minutes off the bench.

 Deron Williams led New Jersey with 23 points and MarShon Brooks scored 21.

The Nets lost their third straight Friday night, 105-98, to the Hawks. But a silver lining emerged in all of the losses, which included a 36-point drubbing at the hands of the Hawks three days earlier: Brooks, 22, the former Providence star and the 25th pick of this year’s draft who scored 21 points in 29 minutes Friday, is New Jersey’s second-leading scorer, averaging 15.3 points per game.

#AnthonyWeiner's mistress #Tracie Nobles says he wanted a 3-some with another MAN!!!

We all remember Former U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner's fall from grace earlier this year with the sex scandal that rocked his career. Now we are learning from Weiner's mistress, Traci Nobles that he once asked her to have a THREESOME with ANOTHER GUY!!!  Here are portions of the convo:

WEINER: "I'm not really talking about other chicks… How about with another guy?"

NOBLES: "Hmmmm, haven't done it before."
WEINER: "It can be hot."
NOBLES: "Are you turned on by other guys?"
WEINER: "Well it depends on the guy, but generally yes."

So, does that mean that Weiner is gay/ bi-sexual or just 'open to new expereinces'??  This news maybe just fodder for the tabloids, because back in November we learned that Nobles was shopping around a TELL-ALL book about their exploits, so there maybe some truth to this, and then again.... who knows?  We will see how this plays out.

VIBES from the VAULT- #LisaLisa & The Cult Jam-'Let the Beat Hit 'Em'

Before there was JLo, Angie Martinez, or Christina Aguilera, there was one HOT LATINA that was ruling the charts!  That's right Lisa Lisa, was holding it down for the Latino females in the R&B/Pop arena!!!  Lisa Lisa and The Cult Jam fused, pop, rock, R&B, and sometimes Dance to make one hell of an emulsion.  Let's take it back just a little.  The 'Vibe from the Vault' goes to Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam in the form of 'Let the Beat Hit Em'!
