Breaking Now: #JohnEdwards found NOT GUILTY!?!

Solemn: Former U.S. Senator John Edwards leaves for a lunch break during the ninth day of jury deliberations at the federal courthouse in Greensboro, North Carolina

Senator John Edwards was found NOT GUILTY on one of 5 counts today after 2 weeks of deliberations.

The judge declared a mistrial after the jury said they could not reach a decision on the other five counts.
The not guilty verdict was for count three - the charge that Edwards accepted and received illegal campaign contributions from Rachel 'Bunny' Mellon.
The mixed result came after nine days of jury deliberations in a trial that exposed Edwards’ sexual indiscretions and countless deceptions against the public, his aides and his family.
Edwards did not react when the verdict and mistrial were announced, but he was happy and smiling about an hour earlier when the jury said it had reached a verdict on one count after nine days of deliberations.

There is an option to retry the case, but experts say due to the complicated and controversial nature of the situation, a retrial is unlikely.

When the jury told the judge they were hopelessly deadlocked on the rest of the counts against the 58-year-old, she made the decision and dismissed them.
Confusion descended on the North Carolina courthouse around 2.30pm after the jury sent the judge a note to say they had reached their verdict after nine days of deliberations.
When the foreman was questioned by the judge, he revealed they had found a verdict for only ONE of the six counts in the charges that Edwards used campaign funds to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
The not-guilty verdict has brought an end to a scandalous five-year fall from grace for the man who was once hotly tipped as becoming the next President of the United States of America.

Twit Pic'n (Yo' Nose): #MarkWahlberg' ON THE SET in his DRAWS!!


What is the worst job you ever had in your life? Think back. I can remember the worse job I had was at a fast food restaurant when I was in high school. I remember it because I severely burned by foot changing french fry grease one night. But anyways, I digress, meet Tennille Cardinal of Norvell Skin Solutions. From a woman's POV, she may have one of the best jobs in the world. Ms. Cardinal is responsible for giving actor, Mark Wahlberg a complete body spray tan for his new movie, 'Pain & Gain'.

"As a 13 year sunless professional for Norvell it was an honor to spray an icon like Mark Wahlberg," she tells explains. "He was professional and very down to earth each time we met. He is in amazing shape, you can tell he put the time in for this movie and made my job so much more exciting. Thank You Mark!”
And with that being said, she shared a photo from the set.

You can tell Cardinal enjoys her job.  Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie also star in the flick about weightlifting due out later this year.

Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, and Anthony Mackie throw on their 90's duds and hop into a red Dodge sports car as they film a scene for 'Pain and Gain.'.

A Brit wins 'America's Next Top Model' British Invasion!!!!

It was a revolutionary war of sorts as this season's Top Model pitted 7 UK models against 7 USA newbies.  And we can say that the revolution was televised and this time, the Brits won.  Last night saw Tyra and crew crown another Top Model and this time it was Sophie Sumner from Oxford England!  Sophie's effervescent personality and killer photos and runway walked helped her win over the judging panel and edge frontrunner, Laura LaFrate.  Check out the moment of truth for Sophie:


Sumner's prizes will include a $100,000 contract with Covergirl, contracts with New York Model Management and L.A. Models, a guest corresondent spot on 'Extra', a fashion spread in Vogue Italia.  And if that wasn't enough, Sophie will record a single with CBS records and become the face of the ANTM fragrance, 'Dream Come True'.
Sophie competed in Britain's Next Top Model but came in 2nd place.  She took that same spirit and tenacity and snagged teh top prize this time around.  Congrats to Sophie on her win!!!

#MichaelJackson SPEAKS from the GRAVE? Long lost love letter to #LisaMarie Presley FOUND!

We know that even in death, Michael Jackson is still on the charts and breaking reacords.  Now it appears that the late great ICON is speaking from the grave.  Well not exactly, but a long-lost letter that he wrote to his then wife Lisa-Marie Presley has been found.  In the letter, he spoke to his wife about his lack of SLEEP.  The letter was from between 1993-1996 and was scheduled to be auctioned but was removed per a request from Presley.

In the handwritten note, Jackson says: "I truly need this rest. I haven't slept litterally in 4 days and I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first. Im' crazy for you."

He signs the scribbled note, "Love, Turd," an apparent nickname of his.

Michael Jackson, Lisa Marie Presley, Letter

Julien said it was because of the "personal nature" of the note and the company's desire to maintain a "good relationship" with Presley (who was married to Jackson from 1994 to 1996) that they adhered to this "reasonable request."

How touching...

Case OPEN-Case Closed: #RayJ being SUED for taking CLOTHES from WhitneyHouston's Beverly Hills Hotel!?!

Just a few hours ago, an L.A. stylist filed papers to SUE singer Ray-J for taking clothes from the Beverly Hills suite where Whitney Houston died!  The stylist, Marc Littlejohn, alleged that he gave the singe close to $3000 worth of designer clothes for the Grammy Awards, and that the clothes were never returned. According to the lawsuit, they were left in the Beverly Hilton hotel room where Whitney died and haven't been seen since.
The clothes donated were two suits and a jacket.

Fast forward a few hours later, after pending litigation, the duds miraculously REAPPEAR!!!
Apparently, last night, one of Whitney Houston's associates recovered the clothes and has since turned them over to Ray-J.  Sources are saying that the clothes, as well as the rest of her belongings were removed from Whitney's room at the time of her passing.

So the mystery has been solved. Case open, CASE CLOSED!!

Mag Tag: #JessicaSimpson and Baby Maxwell on People!

Proud new mom, Jessica Simpson has unveiled her precious bundle of joy.  Simpson and Baby Maxwell Drew grace the cover of the June 11th issue of 'People'. According to the mag, baby Maxwell has her mom’s eyes and her dad’s sense of calm.

“We stare at her all the time,” the star said of her first child. “We can’t get enough!”

The new mom explained that she is still recovering from giving birth on May 1 via C-section and that Eric sometimes takes over feeding duties.

“It’s the worst if I have to pump and give Eric a bottle to give her,” Jessica explained. “I miss holding her and having that closeness.”

Jessica was pretty vocal about the trials of pregnancy and that has continued after the baby’s birth, with her Tweeting her experiences as a new mom, saying,

“I am so in love with baby Maxwell … Motherhood is by far the best thing I’ve ever experienced.”

New Video: #TheThrone -'No Church in the Wild'

Jay-Z and Kanye West , collectively dubbed, 'The Throne' are back with another cinematic gem from their platinum-selling 'Watch the Throne' disc.  This time it is in the form of 'No Church in the Wild'.  The visual was shot in Prague and is said to be inspired by last year's London riots. The gripping visual features neither member of The Throne, but instead focuses on two groups: protestors and the police, both at war with one another. And yes, this is war — it’s an unsettling and savage clip, depicting protestors being beaten and pepper-sprayed as they mercilessly combat with the police, though the protestors-turned-rioters also inflict a large part of the violence: they destroy property, loot stores, and set fire to cars and humans. The video refuses to take sides, as there’s no winner when a conflict turns to violence.    The new video was directed by Romain Gavras, who also shot M.I.A‘s video for Bad Girls.

The song may sound familiar, it was showcased in Denzel Washington's last movie, 'SafeHouse', and is set to be featured in 'The Great Gatsby' trailer as well.

Frank Ocean lends his vocals to the haunting hook.

#Madonna infuses #LadyGaga's 'Born this Way' into her LIVE SHOW!

Is this homage or a direct SWIPE at Lady GaGa?? Rehearsal footage of Madonna preparing for her MDNA World Tour finds the pop icon performing a mashup of her legendary hit, 'Express Yourself' and Lady GaGa's, 'Born this Way'. In the middle of “Express Yourself,” the singer cuts into “Born This Way,” (which Madonna called “reductive” back in January.) The “Born This Way” interlude is then followed by Madonna’s own “She’s Not Me,” a song off 2008’s “Hard Candy,” where Madge calls out a woman for “stealing, stealing, stealing” her look and style. Madge is really letting the claws out with that one. It seems like a DIRECT swipe at GaGa, who has taken alot of Madonna's swagger and used as her own.
Interesting... Check out the CLIP!

CONFIRMED!! #TerrenceJ & #Rocsi say GOODBYE to #106&Park!! *updated*

After 7 years of coming into your living rooms each day as the hosts of BET's popular countdown show, '106 & Park', the dynamic duo of Terrence J and Rocsi are calling it quits!  I've spoken on how both television personalities have grown and embarked on other paths of their lives, and now it is official.  The two are moving on. Stephen J. Hill, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, confirms the news in a statement:

“Today, after seven exciting years, 106 & Park hosts Terrence J and Rocsi announced that they will be leaving the show. It is no secret that there are a number of opportunities coming their way and we’re fortunate that they’ve been with 106 & Park for so long. They will be staying on the show for a while, so that we can have a “victory lap” — a celebration of their years at the helm of 106 & Park — before their departure. Terrence J and Rocsi are destined for great success and we at BET Networks will always take pride in being their original home — and be a place where I hope they’ll always feel welcome.”
The two announced on yesterday's show of their departure. Terrence & Rocsi had this to say:
"The first day I cracked the mic on 106, I was staying on a cot in a basement," Terrence said, while Rocsi added, "Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young Black culture. It continues to be our honor to do this for you. "We are humbled at the opportunity to be a part of your lives," Terrence summed up, before promising that "we have a huge farewell show coming for you guys. We're going to be leaving with a bang."

The duo were chosen out of thousands who entered the 'New Faces' campaign that BET launched 7 years ago. They had HUGE shoes to fill following behind the originators, AJ & Free, as well as Big Tigger and Julissa who all had their time on the mic.


Although this is one chapter that is coming to an end for the two, bigger and better things are on their immediate horizon. Both have budding acting careers--Terrence J has had success on BET's hit show 'The Game' as well as in the movie 'Think Like a Man', while there are several movie roles in Rocsi's future as well. The fans maybe saddened by their departure, but at BET, the doors are always open, and you will see these two stars again in other capacities.
But don't be too broken up. The duo haven't signed off just yet. There will be a huge send-off for the duo and you know BET will pull out all the stops to ensure the two go out in style. Seven is a good number, 7 is the sign of completion, and this chapter in their career is complete--now it's time to conquer other things. Job well done guys!! Thanks for the memories!
