Polish professional tennis player Jerzy Janowicz scored a surprise three-set victory over Richard Gasquet in round three of the Rome Masters. He seems happy.
Mind you, it’s akin to what Kirstie Alley wore on Oprah when she dropped her weight the fist time and wore a “bikini” (with a full, odd body stocking underneath it). But still, at 59, Christie Brinkley is still a stunner. That hair is like spun gold. (via Social Life Magazine)
Good Lord! Take a breath and get your calculator out, cuz you got a lot of following to do with this story, ready? Okay, so Mary J Blige basically just got a huge tab to pay to the IRS to the tune of $3.4 million. MJB is being accused of not paying her US federal taxes for three years starting in 2009. But that ain’t it y’all.
In addition to her federal taxes, she also reportedly owes the State of New Jersey over $900,000 in back taxes.
But that ain’t it y’all. She was sued earlier this year for allegedly defaulting on a $500,000 bank loan. But that ain’t it y’all. In another lawsuit, filed last November, Mary and her husband were also accused of defaulting on a $2.2 million loan from a different financial institution and they are wanting their full loan amount PLUS $58,000 in interest.
But that ain’t it y’all.
Mary’s charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., was accused of mishandling funds and failing to pay back a loan last year.
I told you it was gonna be a tough one to follow. I have no idea how one would even begin to right these wrongs. I guess she starts righting, by writing…checks. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
They got rid of Britney on X Factor only to bring back Demi (yes!) and hire 2 new female judges: Paulina Rubio and Kelly Rowland. Simon Cowell will be joining his “angels” as the fearless man amongst the estrogen (though his tits are bigger than all of the ladies on this panel combined, real T.) Does this make you want to tune in? Yeah, me neither.

People laughed this morning when Businessweek headlined an article: “If Yahoo Buys Tumblr, What Will It Do With All That Porn?” But it was A LEGITIMATE QUESTION, YOU GUYS. Tumblr is notorious for it’s, how shall we say, freewheeling approach to modern living, while Yahoo! can be a bit more… uptight. What would happen to all those glorious gay porn GIFs on sites like Chadley MacGuff and BehindChanelSunglasses that help me get through every work day? Not to worry. According to HuffPo: “Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer emphasized that Yahoo! wants to ‘let Tumblr be Tumblr,’ which she suggested would include allowing its numerous X-rated accounts to continue pumping out pornography undisturbed.” Said Mayer; “I think the richness and breadth of content available on Tumblr – even though it may not be as brand safe as what’s on our site – is what’s really exciting and allows us to reach even more users.” WHEW! That’s a relief. Of course, it’s probably not going to stop the mass exodus of Tumblr users who consider Yahoo! the kiss of death. “If Tumblr becomes another Myspace, I’ll never use the internet again!” grumbles one angry Tumblr.
