Posted in: , ,

It was reported yesterday that a patient suspected to be infected with the dreaded Ebola virus had died in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. And despite denials by Rivers state health commissioner, Sampson Parker at a press conference yesterday, insisting the victim did not die of Ebola, but fever and diarrhoea, new reports confirm it was Ebola.

Nigeria's Health Minister, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu confirmed that the dead man was a PH doctor named Ikye Enemoah, and he died on Friday Aug. 22nd after treating a diplomat who had direct contact with Patrick Sawyer. He said laboratory analysis on his corpse showed he died from Ebola.

"Following the report of his death by the doctor's widow the next day, the case had been thoroughly investigated and laboratory analysis showed that this doctor died from EVD (Ebola Virus Disease)." 

He also confirmed to reporters that two people in Port Harcourt have contracted the Ebola disease, the doctor's wife and the diplomat he treated. The wife has been quarantined and the diplomat under surveillance.

Model Condemns Photoshopped Bikini Picture That Made Her Look 4 Sizes Smaller

Posted in: , , ,

Meaghan Kausman recently did an underwater bikini shoot and was shocked when the bikini company photoshopped her several sizes smaller before posting it.

Meaghan, whose dad happens to be a body-image expert, did not like this at all. The Australian model had suffered eating disorders in the past, and took to her Instagram to call out the Bikini company. She shared two photos from the shoot, one prior to editing and one from after.

Needless to say, the two were quite different. Not only was her stomach slimmed down, but the rest of her body appears to be retouched, too. Kausman condemned the obvious editing, saying;

My body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body! I refuse to stand by and allow ANY company or person to perpetuate the belief that “thinner is better”.

Innocent Black Man Arrested For Bank Robbery, Handcuffed And Then Left On The Curb

Posted in: , , ,

Local police in LA arrested television producer Charles Belk as he was walking from a restaurant, accusing him of “armed bank robbery and accessory to robbery of a Citibank.”

He was then cuffed and left by the side of the road for almost an hour. It took the police a total of 6hrs at the station to let him go, after finally reviewing CCTV that showed he was innocent.

Belk shared his story on Facebook describing the “life altering experience,” saying his only crime was fitting the description of a “tall, bald head, black male.”


It’s one of those things that you hear about, but never think it would happen to you.

On Friday afternoon, August 22nd around 5:20pm, while innocently walking by myself from a restaurant on Wilshire Blvd, to my car up LaCienega Blvd my freedom was taken from me by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Within seconds, I was detained and told to sit on the curb of the very busy street, during rush hour traffic.

Within minutes, I was surrounded by 6 police cars, handcuffed very tightly, fully searched for weapons, and placed back on the curb.

It seems that even JLo's butt on the cover of her latest single Booty is not selling as many copies as she wants. The 45 year old singer has brought in younger booty to help.

Jennifer Lopez shared the cover of the "Booty" remix with Iggy Azalea on Instagram, with the two women posing in swimsuits and heels to better show off their booty. JLo captioned it only in hastags;

"#jlobooty #aintseenabootylikethissincejennyfromtheblock #doublebubbletrouble #jloiggybooty."
Iggy Azalea raps: "They're begging me to drop down on 'em / But right now Iggy on the top / The last time the world seen a booty this good / It was on Jenny From the Block."

Posted in: , ,

For #tbt today, there's these photos of actress Halima Abubakar and blogger Stella Dimokokorkus hanging out together. So it seems the two old friends had some recent falling out over a bikini picture, but that has been sorted out now.

Halima shared the pictures as a reminder of how far they've both come, and Stella buried the hatchet. All is well that ends well. With blogging anyway, it's rarely anything personal :)

Can you guess the year the pictures were taken? From the shaved eyebrows and pale lipstick with black lip liner, I say late 90s...

Jennifer Hudson Speaks On Lesbian Rumors, Her Gay Fans And Playing Whitney Houston

Posted in: , , ,

Jennifer Hudson, 32, says she doesn't care whether people think she's lesbian. This is in a reaction to public speculation on her sexuality which started more than 7 years ago.

The singer and actress, says in a recent interview that she faced scrutiny again after singing marriage equality anthem, "Same Love" with Macklemore and Mary Lambert at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
If someone ever questions or thinks that, I don't care what you think. It shouldn't matter. And I did get that! People were like, "Is Jennifer trying to tell us something?" Hey, I wasn't, but if you wanna think that, it's all right with me. When I got the call (to do that performance), I was like, "Oh my god, I definitely wanna do this. A powerful statement is being made and I wanna be a part of that."

Read JHud's take on the upcoming Lifetime biopic about Whitney Houston below, and some more exerpts from the interview...

Tonight is @DianeSawyer's last night anchoring @ABCWorldNews. We are so excited to see her adventures ahead at @ABC.

That was how ABC "World News" confirmed earlier today that this will be Diane Sawyer's final appearance. I am a big fan of Diane Sawyer and as I watch her helm the news this evening, I can only wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
