Miss NJ: I am probably in the minority, but I like this look on R.  If only because it advertises his mental issues.

A couple fighting about which gang their 4-year-old toddler should join caused a public disturbance that resulted in the father’s arrest, Commerce City police said Thursday.

 

On Saturday, Joseph Manzanares stormed into the Hollywood Video store where his girlfriend worked, threatened to kill her and knocked over several video displays and even a computer, Commerce City police Sgt. Joe Sandoval said.

 

After he ran out of the store, police were called and the 19-year-old was arrested at his home.

His girlfriend told police that they had been arguing about the upbringing of their son and which gang he should belong to. The teen mother, who is black, is a member of the Crips. Manzanares is Hispanic and belongs to the Westside Ballers gang, the woman said.

 

“They have different ideas on how the baby should be raised. Basically, she said they cannot agree on which gang the baby would ‘claim,'” Sandoval said.

 

Manzanares was charged with disorderly conduct, harassment, and domestic violence. He was transported to the Adams County Detention Facility.

 

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was sentenced to a year of probation. The misdemeanor harassment charge was dropped.

Miss NJ: Wouldn’t it be nice if every situation in life could be resolved by a song-and-dance routine?  ‘Cause no matter what happens next for this child, you know he’s going to end up prisoner #824651.

Paris Hilton’s new reality show should be called “I Want To Be Paris Hilton” . Heirhead wannabes lined up Tuesday at Nikki Beach in New York for Hilton’s new MTV reality series, “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” and it wasn’t pretty. “It looked like Barbie threw up in there,” said our spy. “All the girls looked like versions of Donatella Versace. They all had bleached blond hair, too-dark tans and were wearing tight, shiny dresses. All the guys that were there were gay. The whole thing was so bizarre.” Casting directors had sent out a notice saying they were looking for “hot bitches and fierce guys” for the show.

Miss NJ: “Barbie throw-up” sounds like an appropriate description of anything related to Paris.  If MTV wants to understand why it’s ratings have tanked lately, it need look no further than this and the Tila Tequila mess.  It used to be that MTV was cutting edge, ahead of the curve; if you wanted to know what was in and hip and happening, you watched MTV.  Now, you feel like reruns of the Golden Girls should be airing.  Although, even that might be a bit too hip for MTV at this point.

Miss NJ:  I try not to say too much about Tameka and Usher because they have enough hate in their lives without me adding my two cents.  So, even though it makes absolutely no sense to me and somewhat confirms his status on the other team for me, I let them live.  But the crustiness that is Tameka’s toes cannot be left alone.  Given how much money her husband has, there is no excuse for feet that look like this.  You can acutally see the ash on her feet.  And if that’s not ash, then I shudder to think what the crack of her a** looks like.

BK Diva:  Some “Men” opps excuse “women” don’t take good care of their feet.  Both of them look like they don’t wash so why would he care & she care whether or not they’re done!

As many as nine third-grade students got together and plotted to harm their teacher, even going so far as to bring handcuffs and a knife to school, Waycross police said.

School officials at Center Elementary School, which is located on Dorothy Street in Waycross, said they never imagined that some of the 8- and 9-year-olds boys and girls at the school would think of bringing physical harm to a teacher.

“A plan had been developed amongst several of our third-grade students to allegedly do harm to their teacher,” said Theresa Martin, of Ware County Schools. 

Martin said the plot was uncovered when one student saw a knife in the backpack of another student.

“It’s shocking that they would think of this at their young age. I think that is probably the most shocking part for all of us,” Martin said.

In addition to the knife being found, the school officials said other students had duct tape, handcuffs, ribbon and a heavy crystal paperweight.

Although officials said they believe the students were plotting to hurt their teacher, they did not know how far the kids were planning to take the alleged scheme.

The police chief in Waycross told Channel 4 he believes the plan may have been developed because one of the students was punished with some sort of time out. However, that theory remains under investigation.

“I can’t believe that — because he’s a third-grader. You know, I cannot believe that. Especially, for here,” said parent Doris Rowland.

The nine students suspected in the plot to harm the teacher have been suspended until the police investigation is completed. The kids could face expulsion pending the investigation.

Authorities could also ask prosecutors to press conspiracy charges against the youngsters accused of being involved in the plot.

Miss NJ: As I read this story a few things came to mind, most importantly, what did this teacher do that made these kids plot on her like this?  They say punishment of the time out variety, but there has to be more to this situation than that.  Kids get time out all the time and being denied recess hasn’t set 3rd graders off before.  So what are the details?  We also need to know more about the kids involved.  Do they live in the same neighborhood, same block, etc?  That’s important because if the group is close-knit then they need to be separated.  Or this will happen again.  Finally, this is why children should be outside riding bikes, playing hopscotch, tag, kickball, etc.  Playing video games all the time leads to this type of behavior.  I don’t blame the video game, but I do say that it frames the thinking and the choice set for children to include violent responses as acceptable behavior.

BK Diva:  I agree to some level but video games are not the only culprit here.  Movies, television, music, children being raised as adults and knowing grown folks business adds to this chaos as well.

Miss NJ:  If I ever see nail polish on a man’s toes, the relationship ends right there.  No man can have toes as pretty or prettier than mine.  His feet look like a woman’s.  I have been told by those who know that black nail polish is a thing among athletes.  But I wasn’t told why.  If anyone knows, please holla at a sister.

Miss NJ:  I was not going to post this picture because I figured she had been talked about enough.  But this look is so worth a Bette that I had to say something.  My questions as I gaze upon this image: why do you have colored pony hair clipped in; why are you wearing $5.99 sunglasses from Wal-Mart, like they’re designer wear; why do you have red hot pants on; do you really need to show me all of your cleavage, perhaps a shirt in your size would have helped; and is there a reason for the clutter around your neck?  A suggestion for next time, if you are going to wear your hair that light, then you should also lighten your eyebrows.  It’s distracting and takes away from your face when you don’t.

Miss NJ: Yeah, I know I said I’d wait for BK Diva to get up to speed, but I saw this.  There are so many things wrong here.  First, when did two seconds of appearing on a third-rate reality show qualify you to be anything more than a trivia answer?  And in her case, not even that.  Second, what is she selling exactly?  Is this chap stick for soon-to-be porn stars?  I really felt like I was in a very, very bad Calvin Klien ad in the beginning.  Thirdly, what is up with the knee-high tube socks and pumps?  Lastly, who directed this mess?  Who told her this was a good way to sell anything, much less something you want me to put on my mouth?  It’s pathetic what people will do to avoid an honest day’s work.

BK Diva:  What are you selling?  Ass, dick suck, bad porn tape cause it damn sure aint Lip Chap.  Chap Stick should sue your nasty ass!

The bitter breakup between Hulk Hogan (otherwise known by his real name, Terry Bollea) and soon-to-be ex-wife Linda may be the result of the wrestler’s cheating ways. In an interview with the National Enquirer, Christiane Plante, best friend to Hulk’s daughter, Brooke, confessed to being the other woman.

“My relationship with Terry began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending,” Christiane told the tabloid. “She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed.”

The actual status of Terry and Linda’s relationship at the time is up for debate. Hulk claimed he was “shocked” to learn of his wife’s plan to divorce him when papers were eventually filed in November of last year.

As for Christiane’s friendship with Brooke, that relationship may be over as well. “Having felt the guilt and pain build up, I gave a note to Brooke apologizing for my actions,” Christiane said. “I will never be able to fully forgive myself for this. I have lost an amazing friend.”

In a message posted to her MySpace blog a week ago, Brooke stated, “I’m going through one of the hardest issues I’ve ever had to deal with in my life … please keep me and my family in your prayers.”

According to gossip blogger Perez Hilton, another message was posted two days later and since deleted, in which Brooke addressed the issue more directly. “When your best friend and one of your closest family members that you have loved unconditionally since your first day on this earth, betray you together, you could MAYBE find it in yourself to forgive one day … but you will NEVER forget the hurt they caused you …”

Miss NJ:  I watched the first season of their reality special.  The one thing that stood out was how overprotective Hulk was of Brooke.  Boys could barely look at her, much less try to have a conversation.  What would he have done if that had been Brooke having sex with her best friend’s father?  What would he have done to the man involved?  Not only is this situation tacky and tasteless, but it shows that Hulk really doesn’t have any respect for women.  They are all just objects to him, including the women in his family.

BK Diva:  I’d beat that bitches ass!!  The damage is done but who gives a ish!

So, on this a-hole’s radio show a caller was complaining about Michelle Obama’s remark “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.”  

His response?  “I don’t want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there’s evidence, hard facts, that sat this is how the woman really feels.  If that’s how she really feels – that it’s a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever – then that’s legit.  We’ll track it down.” 

Miss NJ:  WHAT THE F*CK?!?!?!?!!!!  I need to understand why how and why this man keeps a job when he repeatedly makes ignorant remarks such as this.  However, Star Jones-Reynolds wrote an open letter that responses appropriately.  I have put the entire letter here and I hope you read it because everything she says should have been said long ago.

“I’m sick to death of people like Fox News Host, Bill O’Reilly, and his ilk thinking that he can use a racial slur against a black woman who cold be the next First Lady of the United States, give a half-assed apology and not be taken to task and called on his crap.

This week O’Reilly gave the following response to a caller on his radio show who was making unsubstantiated negative charges against presidential candidate Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama:

‘I don’t want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there’s evidence, hard facts, that sat this is how the woman really feels.  If that’s how she really feels – that it’s a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever – then that’s legit.  We’ll track it down.’

What the hell?  If it’s ‘legit,’ you’re going to ‘track it down?’  And then what do you plan to do?

How dare this white man with a microphone and the trust of the public think that in 2008, he can still put the words ‘lynch and party’ together in the same sentence with reference to a black woman; in this case, Michelle Obama?  I don’t care how you ‘spin it’ in the ‘no spin zone,’ that statement in and of itself is racist, unacceptable and inappropriate on every level.

O’Reilly claims his comments were taken out of context.  Please don’t insult my intelligence while you’re insulting me.  I’ve read the comments and heard them delivered in O’Reilly’s own voice; and there is no right context that exists.  So, his insincere apology and “out-of-context” excuse is not going to cut it with me.

And just so we’re clear, this has nothing to do with the 2008 presidential election, me being a Democrat, him claiming to be Independent while talking Republican, the liberal media or a conservative point of view.  To the contrary, this is about crossing a line in the sand that needs to be drawn based on history, dignity, taste and truth.

Bill, I’m not sure of where you come from, but let me tell you what the phrase ‘lynching party’ conjures up to me, a black woman born in North Carolina.  Those words depict the image of a group of white men who are angry with the state of their own lives getting together, drinking more than they need to drink, lamenting how some black person has moved forward (usually ahead of them in stature or dignity), and had the audacity to think that they could be equal.  These same men for years, instead of looking at what changes, should and could be made in their own lives that might remove that bitterness born of percieved privilege, these white men take all of that resentment and anger and decide to get together and drag the closest balck person near them to their death by hanging them from a tree — usually after violent beating, torturing and violating their human dignity.  Check your history books, because you don’t need a master’s degree or a law degree from Havard to know that is what constitutes a ‘lynching party.’

Imagine, Michelle and Barack Obama having the audacity to think that they have the right to the American dream, hopes, and ideals.  O’Reilly must really think to himself: how dare they have the arrogance to think they can stand in front of this nation, challenge the status quo and express the frustration of millions?  When this happens, the first thing that comes to mind for O’Reilly and people like him is: ‘it’s time for a party.’

Not so fast…don’t order the rope just yet.

Would O’Reilly ever in a million years use this phrase with reference to Elizabeth Edwards, Cindy McCain or Judi Nathan?  I mean, in all oof the statements an dcriticisms that were made about Judi Nathan, the one-time mistress turned missus, of former presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, I never heard any talk of forming a lynching party becasue of something she said or did.

So why is it that when you’re referring to someone whose African-American you must dig to a historical place of pain, agony and death to symbolize your feelings?  Lynching is not a joke to off-handedly throw around and it is not a metaphor that has a place in politcal commentary; provocative or otherwise.  I admit that I come from a place of personal outrage here having buried my 90 year-old grandfather last year.  This proud, amazing African-American man raised his family and lived through the time when he had to use separate water fountains, ride in the back of the bus, take his wife on a date to the ‘colored section’ of a movie theater, and avert his eyes when a white woman walked down the street for fear of what a white man and his cronies might do if they felf the urge to ‘party’; don’t tell me that phrase yous chose, Mr. O’Reilly, was taken out of context.

To add insult to injury, O’Reilly tried to ‘clarify’ his statements, by using the excuse that his comments were reminiscent of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ use of the term ‘high-tech lynching’ during his confirmation hearing.  I reject that analogy.  You see Justice Thomas did not mean to bring up the image of lynching in its racist contect.  He ws saying that politics and the media were using new technology to do to him what had been done to black men for many years — hang him.  Regardless of if you agreed with Justice Thomas’ premise or not — if in fact Bill O’Reilly was referencing it — the context becomes even clearer.

What annoys me more than anything is that I get the feeling that one of the reasons Bill O’Reilly made this statement, thinking he could get away with it in the first place, and then followed it up with a lame apology in a half-hearted attempt to smooth any ruffled feathers, is because he doesn’t think that black women will come out and go after him when he goes after us.  Well, he’s dead wrong.  Be clear Bill O’Reilly: there will be no lynch party for that black woman.  And this black woman assures you that if you come for her, you come for all of us.” — Star Jones-Reynolds

Miss NJ:  And I don’t think anymore needs to be said.  Do you?

BK Diva:  Star has it covered boo boo!
