ShamDamn! The ShamWow Dude Gets Arrested For Being Crude To A Hooker!

The guy who is the spokesperson for ShamWow has been arrested for hitting a hooker.She allegedly bit his tongue.But,I was surprised that there was no drugs involved in the arrest.Because he looks like he’s on something in those commercials.Here’s more from The Smoking Gun:

Meet Vince Shlomi. He’s probably better known to you as the ShamWow Guy, the ubiquitous television pitchman who has been phenomenally successful peddling absorbent towels and food choppers. Shlomi, 44, was arrested last month on a felony battery charge following a violent confrontation with a prostitute in his South Beach hotel room.

According to an arrest affidavit, Shlomi met Sasha Harris, 26, at a Miami Beach nightclub on February 7 and subsequently retired with her to his $750 room at the lavish Setai hotel. Shlomi told cops he paid Harris about $1000 in cash after she “propositioned him for straight sex.” Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly “bit his tongue and would not let go.” Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue.

The affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find here, notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face (she is pictured here in mug shots snapped following busts in 2008 and 2005). After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the Setai lobby, where security summoned cops.

Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse. “Both parties had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from their persons,” police reported. In a brief telephone interview, Harris declined to answer TSG questions about her run-in with Shlomi, though she did say she is considering a lawsuit against the pitchman. Asked if she worked as a hooker, Harris declined comment.”(End of Excerpt)Read the rest here.

Think Progress:UPS Announced It Won’t Advertise During Bill O’Reilly’s Show!

Thanks to Think Progress,UPS’s thinking has progressed when it comes to advertising during Bill O’Reilly’s offensive show! After the way he attacked Amanda Terkel for pointing out the truth,I’m glad that someone has shown him the error of his ways! Here’s more from Think Progress:

“In response to our Stop Supporting The O’Reilly Harassment Machine campaign, UPS told us yesterday that it was investigating whether to continue supporting O’Reilly’s show. “We are sensitive to the type of television programming where our messages and presence are associated and continually review choices to affect future decisions,” spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg told us.

Today UPS announced it will stop advertising on O’Reilly’s show. Here is the statement UPS emailed out just moments ago:

Thank you for sending an e-mail expressing concern about UPS advertising during the Bill O’Reilly show on FOX News. We do consider such comments as we review ad placement decisions which involve a variety of news, entertainment and sports programming. At this time, we have no plans to continue advertising during this show.”(End of Excerpt) Go here to read the rest.

Gloria Allred Is Right About OctoSelf!

I can’t go one day without hearing something about “octoself”, so I rarely write about her on my blog! And if you don’t know why I’m calling Nadya Suleman “octoself you must not be paying much attention to the constant barrage of reports about her! This is no “octomom“!

In order to be a mom,you must provide the basic needs for your child.That would be food,shelter,safety,security,&love! From the constant throngs of media that surrounds these premature babies,I don’t see how they could possibly feel safe & secure with this mother! Doesn’t Nadya Suleman know that premature babies are more sensitive to noise than full term babies? How is all of this media coverage good for anyone but Nadya Suleman?She is the only one benefiting from all of this!

And that’s what everyone that has ever been in the proximity of Nadya Suleman is saying. “Angels In Waiting”,Angela Suleman,Dr. Phil,& Gloria Allred have all observed how self-absorbed this woman is! The attention & care that these precious babies need is not the first thing that’s on Nadya’s mind.All she cares about is preserving her place in the media spotlight.There is no “octomom“! That title is too good for Nadya Suleman. “Octoselfis much more fitting!

Here’s what one of the nannies that Nadya Suleman fired has to say,as reported by ABC News:

A nurse who had been helping provide care for some of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets said today that Suleman appeared disinterested in her children.

Linda West-Conforti, the founder of Angels in Waiting, said today on the “Dr. Phil Show” that Suleman did not care about her children, only voluntarily fed them when a film crew was there, and spent too much time away from home.

This woman does not care for these kids, that’s my honest opinion,” she said.

Earlier this week, Suleman fired Angels in Waiting, a nonprofit group of nurses that helped care for her children, accusing the group of being unprofessional, spying on her and reporting her to child welfare officials.

Suleman’s attorney, Jeff Czech, said today on “Dr. Phil” that Suleman will have her nannies trained by nurses from the Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center, where the octuplets were born on Jan. 26.

Four of the eight infants have been discharged from the hospital, according to Kaiser Permanente, and brought home amid a throng of reporters and onlookers.

“There has not been a step down in care in this household,” Czech said, adding, “Nadya is a very good mother, a very caring mother.”(End of Excerpt) Read the whole story here.

Kim Kardashian’s Airbrushed Picture!

kim-kardashian-photoshopped-complex

Kim Kardashian is not as perfect as she looks. Like most women in entertainment,her flaws were airbrushed right out of existence in these photographs.Although, I thought that the photos should not have been lightened. She looked like an Armenian goddess with bronzed skin! Since it’s rumored that she has a surgically-enhanced touche, I was kind of surprised to see cellulite. Now, I’m inclined to think that her ass is natural after all. Here’s more on her airbrushed photo from The Hollywood Grind:

“Kim responded with the following statement on her blog:

Hey guys,

So everyone has been putting up these pics from Complex Magazine showing the comparison of the original un-photoshopped photo that mistakenly was put up on complex.com. This blog even went to the trouble to make an animation of the before and after.

Complex later replaced the pic with the photoshopped version, causing all of this drama. But you know what, who cares!

So what: I have a little cellulite. What curvy girl doesn’t!?

How many people do you think are photoshopped? It happens all the time!

At the same time as this Complex shoot, I was gearing up for my fitness DVD and you should see my thighs now!!! Haha!

This all motivates me to stay in the gym because my goal this year has been to get in better shape and tone up! Hard work pays off!

I’m proud of my body and my curves and this picture coming out is probably helpful for everyone to see that just because I am on the cover of a magazine doesn’t mean I’m perfect.

You can check out more behind-the-scenes pics from the shoot right here. And they’re not retouched!

XO,
Kim

If Kim doesn’t care that people know she’s fat, and if she’s so proud to have fat imperfect curves, then why is she hitting the gym so hard, and proclaiming, “you should see my thighs now!!!” Kim would only want us to see her thighs now if she knew they were fat and embarrassing in the photo shoot.”(End of Excerpt) Read the entire post here.

Suze Orman Blasts George Bush: “Commander-In-Chief?”

I simply adore & admire Suze Orman. She’s one hot lesbian lioness who gives Ellen a run for her money! What’s great about her is that she cuts to the chase & gets right down to business whenever she gives advice! So,it’s no wonder that she would do the same in an interview.

While so many are acting as if George Bush never existed,Suze Orman is  one “Money Lady” who is pinning the blame for this financial mess right where it belongs! And that would be right on the former president’s shoulders. Here’s more from the queen of finance at WMD Media:

“She is shocked, shocked, that we all spent money we didn’t have. “The United States of America is in the situation it’s in because people were spending, spending, spending,” Orman says during her satellite burst. “It was all smoke and mirrors and now the smoke has cleared and the view in the mirror is a horrific one.”

Her populist rage is just as pronounced off-camera. Sitting in a green room after her TV interviews, she lambasts everyone from Alan Greenspan to Larry Summers to the former president of the United States, who holds an especially dark place in her heart. “Commander in Chief?” she says of George W. Bush, with a mix of disbelief and scorn. “You blew up every single financial vessel we had and if you think you aren’t personally responsible, well, the blame starts at the top. There is no higher top than you, SIR! If I were you, I would feel so absolutely horrific that I would take every penny I had and distribute it to anybody and everybody to help them in whatever way I could. You owe the American people every penny of your fortune and your family’s fortune.”

Even the victims of Bernie Madoff don’t get off scot-free when Orman gets going. “You walked right into that financial concentration camp, my loves,” she says later in a regrettable metaphor, given that the world’s most famous concentration camp survivor, Elie Wiesel, was among Madoff’s bilked investors. “I mean, you didn’t have to give 100 percent of everything to him.”

If people love a personality this shrill, it’s partly because Orman appears to be totally — even disturbingly — authentic. She is a paradox — a paradigm of self-branding wrapped around a heart that actually seems to beat.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Stephen Colbert Vs. Michael Steele In The Ultimate GOP Rap Battle!It’s A East Hampton-Westchester Thang!

This is why I dig Stephen Colbert. He does a great daily impression of the stiff,dishonest smearmonger named Bill O’Reilly! And he is absolutely hilarious!! In this clip from “The Colbert Show“, Stephen Colbert challenges the empty suit with the missing cool factor,Michael Steele,to a rap battle. And it’s really funny because Colbert is making a point! Conservative views often clash with the liberal viewpoint of most hip-hop artists! Colbert illustrated just how ridiculous Steele’s hip hop declarations are in this skit! Stephen Colbert has more credibility in that music genre than Michael Steele could ever hope too.

I simply love intellectual humor. And Stephen Colbert never disappoints on that front!

President Obama’s Special Olympics Gaffe

Remember the supposed gaffe that President Obama made concerning Jessica Simpson’s weight? People claimed that he called her fat,but here’s what he really said.

This time,though,the President did say something very insensitive. He joked with Jay Leno about his bowling expertise. He compared his lack of bowling skills to the Special Olympics. Very awkward moment,indeed! Here’s more from the seattlepi:

“That’s right: 60 days into the 44th presidency, we’re back to the s/he said what? debates of the campaign. Only this time, there’s not much to debate. Obama really should have known better than to say what he did when the conversation left AIG and industry and turned to bowling:

MR. OBAMA: I bowled a 129. (Laughter and applause.)

MR. LENO: No, that’s very good. Yes. That’s very good, Mr. President.

MR. OBAMA: It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something. (Laughter.)

MR. LENO: No, that’s very good.

To his credit, Obama knew he screwed up and moved quickly to fix it. Before the show had aired, Obama was on the phone with Tim Shriver, the president of The Special Olympics, to apologize.

Guess there’s a reason presidents don’t go on late night.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

I don’t know what made him make such a stupid remark,but I’m glad he apologized for it.
