Man Tips Out on Wife After Winning Lottery

After discovering her husband hid his lottery winnings from her, a Florida woman demanded he fork over her share of the lottery jackpot.

Donna Campbell became suspicious of her husband, Arnim Ramdass, when he started to keep the television turned off and disconnected the phone line. Her suspicions rose when she found a postcard about a new home purchase.

But Campbell was unaware that her husband was hiding a $10.2 million secret from her until she Googled her husband's name and lottery number. She found a
Florida lottery press release that named 17 airline mechanics who won the jackpot, her husband was one of them.

''Here's a guy who for years has spent marital money on the lottery and at casinos, and he's always lost,'' said Bruce Baldwin, Campbell's attorney. ``And now he finally wins, and he's trying to keep it from his wife. That's pretty low.''

According to Campbell, when she confronted her husband, he said he bought the ticket for his daughter from another marriage.

Aint this some ish? Dude's share came to $600,000 and he clearly didn't want to share that. That's a lot of money, but when you think about splitting it...nah... he had to make it. By the time he resurfaces he'll be broke and in rehab.

You My Girl, But...

I like Keyshia Cole -- really I do. She's no MJB, but Keyshia got a fan in me. She didn't show up for a concert in Columbus, GA, and apparently, they don't play that -ish in the G-A. So some guy(s?) and girl(s?) made a diss song about Keyshia's shady antics. The song lasts about 18 seconds too long, but you gotta hear it.

A Conversation with Jay-Z

Wonderful conversation between Jay-Z and Charlie Rose.

How can you not love this man? Jay-Z has a sex appeal that is timeless. Oh, wait, he has a mind too! Right when you think he might finish the sentence in Ebonics, he switches it up and lets you know he has a vocabulary.

Beyonce - DirectTV Commercial

Oh my.

I'm an admitted Beyonce Stan. I don't play about my girl, so I'll keep this polite. I am not tired of seeing Betyonce, but when she went into "DirectTV mode", I wondered, Is this real? A SNL skit? Come on Bey...

David Banner Says Hip Hop Is Not About Politics

Sohh: Why do you feel hip hop didn’t get more involved with the Jena 6 situation?

DB: Hip Hop did….And why does hip hop have to do every damn thing? Why don’t you put that type of responsibility on your President? On your Representatives? Hip Hoppers supposed to be doing music. We need to be in the studio! That’s where we need to be.

The BET Hip Hop Awards weren't enough...?

Hollywood Writers About to Strike

Hollywood writers and studio representatives began last-ditch negotiations Sunday in an effort to prevent a strike, the writers union said.

A federal mediator called the meeting between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television producers at an undisclosed location.

The writers' contract expired October 31, and they plan to strike at 12:01 a.m. Monday (3:01 a.m. ET) if a deal cannot be reached.

The first picket lines would be seen at New York's Rockefeller Center, followed by picket lines at various locations in Los Angeles, the guild said.

The writers want more money from the sale of DVDs and a share of revenue generated by the sale of TV shows and films over the Internet.

The studios say the demands are unreasonable and would hamper attempts to experiment with new media.

. . .

The first casualty of the strike would be late-night talk shows, which are dependent on current events to fuel monologues and other entertainment.

"The Tonight Show" on NBC will go into reruns starting Monday if last-ditch negotiations fail and a strike begins, according to a network official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment publicly.

Comedy Central has said "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" would likely go into repeats as well.

Daytime TV, including live talk shows such as "The View" and soap operas, which typically tape about a week's worth of shows in advance, would be next to feel the impact.

I wish the writer's were striking in response to the influx of irrelevant reality shows. Some I love, but most I hate to love...and some I actually hate.

I don't watch a lot of regular television shows, but I love Ulgy Betty, The Game, and (now stale) Girlfriends. I'd hate if the those writers went on strike. Well, Lynn is starting to look middle aged and Joan is getting more ridiculous with each episode. Darnell could stand to lose a few pounds. Bring the sexy back.

White Boy Tell Em...

My superold homegirl has been soliciting everyone under 14 years old to show her how to do the Soulja Boy. Maybe these kids can teach her....

I can't even be mad.
