Wendy Williams poses for PETA maybe she will pay her four hundred thousand shoe bill

Talk Show host Wendy Williams is the latest celebrity to pose nude for PETA.
The ad campaign Wendy is posing for is "I'd rather go naked than wear fur."

PETA stands for People for the ethical treatment of animals.
How about Humans , they should be treated fairly too.
Wendy Williams recently left a 419k shoe bill in China.
Wendy and her husband,Kevin Hunter, had a China based company (what happened to made in the USA?)
make 12,140 pair of shoes bearing her logo,and then refused to pay,reports the NY Daily News.

Havoc has been reaped upon the owners of Max Harvest International Holding,the small manufacturing company who went into hiding this month after the shoe factory owner---who hadn't been paid--- kidnapped one of their managers in mainland China,according to sources.

The kidnappers held the man (2) Two weeks before releasing him unharmed. The manufacturing firms owners who do not want to be identified fled Hong Kong, a New York based business associate said Tuesday.
According to the owners lawyer, Staci Riordan of Los Angeles; Williams and her husband never paid their shoe bill; which now exceeds $419.000.

She said they signed a contract last year to buy the shoes,part of Williams "Adorn" line.
Things don't work in China like they do in The United States, Riordan said.

She also said that she has been trying her best to negotiate a settlement for months and if it doesn't happen soon her client will file a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Mr and Mrs Williams have declined to comment.

I am gonna start a new group PETH
That stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Human Beings and Wendy Williams will never be in an ad.

Huge sinkhole appears in Ohio and Louisianna

A 200 ft long sinkhole collapses Ohio roadway Wednesday.
Officials say the sinkhole is 85 ft deep and 100 ft wide, a large chunk of route 516 disappeared into the ground as a result of this massive sinkhole.
Roadway crews we're forced to close off sections of the town as a safety precaution.
Luckily no one was hurt because the sinkhole opened up late at night or it could have been much worse.
Fire Captain Mike Mossor said the initial estimates puts the affected area at roughly the size of (4) four football fields.

Ohio Department of Natural resources Geologists are on site to try to determine what made the sinkhole open up. The collapse left a natural gas line exposed. Mossor said officials from the gas company quickly responded and corrected that problem before it became a serious issue,sadly it may take weeks before the road is properly repaired.

The Dover Township sinkhole isn't the only incident recently a Giant sinkhole burped in Louisiana on Tuesday.
Officials with the Assumption Parrish Police Jury say the giant Louisiana sinkhole burped around 11:30 am Tuesday.
The sinkhole continues to grow and is consuming lands and trees,people we're asked to evacuate.
A few trees in the southwest corner of the sinkhole fell during the event and vegetative debris along with hydrocarbon came up from below the hole.
Texas Brine removed all crews from the site and is checking the boom surrounding the area to make sure everything is intact.
It has been more than 5 months since gas bubbles were discovered on Bayou Corne and more than 3 months since the giant sinkhole forced local and state agencies to issue an evacuation for nearby residents.

Lindsay Lohan arrested again

Lindsay Lohan arrested again after allegedly hitting Tiffany Ava Michelle,28,in the face at Avenue nightclub in Manhattan's Chelsea Neighborhood.
Lindsay could face a third degree assault charge,sources say.She was released by the NYPD Thursday morning and is expected back in court on January 11th. The NYPD took the Liz & Dick actress into custody around 4 a.m. after the alleged incident with Florida woman at the 10th ave. hot spot.

Lindsay and her posse tried to avoid the police and slipped out a back door but was spotted by the victim Tiffany Ava Mitchell ,who was bruised and told the police that is her,she is trying to leave.

26 year old Lindsay was stunned when the NYPD put the cuffs on her and she repeatedly said, "Are you kidding me, Are you joking. according to TMZ.

Lindsay is also charged with a June auto accident

Santa Monica police say they have found evidence that she lied when she said she was not behind the wheel of a Porsche that collided with a dump truck.
The three misdemeanors came hours after she was released from the incident in NYC.
Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis told the times that the departments investigation's had determined that Lindsay was driving the Porsche,contradicting statements she made to officers after the crash.
She was charged Thursday with obstruction an investigation,giving false information to an officer and reckless driving.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Lindsay is in trouble again,how many more chances will she get.
I guess that will be up to the Judges to decide.

Must see movies of December 2012

There are several must see movies slated for release in December.
Les Miserables
Dec 14th
Directed by: Tom Hooper
Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe,Anne Hathaway,Amanda Seyfried
Not Yet Rated

Based on Victor Hugo's classic 19th century novel,this film already has an Oscar buzz surrounding it.
Last year Tom Hooper won an Oscar for The Kings Speech.
Hugh Jackman has the lead role of prisoner turned politician Jean Valjean,who is on the run from dogged policeman Javert,played by Russell Crowe.
All the cast had to rehearse and earn their parts in this film,Russell Crowe said this was the first time he had to audition for a role since 1999's The Insider.
This is also the first time that Hugh & Russell have worked together on a film,which is weird because they are close friends and both are from Australia.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Dec 14th
Directed by: Peter Jackson
Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis
Not Yet Rated

Everything about Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R. Tolkien's beloved fantasy is huge, with the obvious exception of the hobbit himself and the thirteen dwarves who accompany him on a quest to reclaim a dragon treasure.The technology required to bring the story to life is hard to comprehend. There are days you go,"Is this really gonna be a film?" says Martin Freeman who plays Bilbo Baggins aka the hobbit.
"We know we are making a series of films people want to see" says Ian McKellen who plays the wizard Gandalf. There will be 2 more films to follow up the Hobbit, I think this trilogy has the potential to be one of the most successful franchises of all time.

Jack Reacher
Dec 21st
Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, Rosamund Pike, Werner Herzog
Rated - PG 13

Based on Lee Child's 2005 thriller One Shot, Reacher Tom Cruise plays an ex- military cop who drifts around the USA with only a toothbrush and a thirst for bare knuckle justice,as he investigates a sniper killings case.
Fans of the book we're surprised that director Chris McQuarrie selected less than imposing Cruise to play huge,brawny 6'5 hero Reacher,when asked about it he replied I only answer to Lee Child's who said "why would I not want the biggest star in the world to play the character I wrote.". "Alot of actors do their own stunts but Tom really does," says Rosemary Pike,who plays an attorney who teams up with Reacher.
Expect Cruise to give more than 110% in this action thriller.

The Guilt Trip
Dec 25th
Directed by: Anne Fletcher
Seth Rogan, Barbara Streisand
Not Yet Rated

It took Anne Fletcher over a year to coax semi retired Barbara Streisand for this bittersweet about an inventor (Seth Rogan) on a cross country road trip with his mom.
After the first take of this film the cast & crew we're taken aback by the chemistry between Seth and Barbara. This is gonna be an instant classic

The Impossible
Dec 21st
Directed by: J.A. Bayona
Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor
Rated - PG 13

A survival drama that tells the true story of a family that nearly died in Thailand during 2004.
The film was shot on location in Khao Lak and director J.A. Bayona says he captured 90% of his tidal wave re-creation using actual water,not computer effects.
This film is scary real and scary good.

Zero Dark Thirty
Dec 19th
Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow
Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler
Not Yet Rated

Zero dark thirty is a military term for thirty minutes after midnight.
If you are fascinated by people who dedicate themselves to really difficult and dangerous things for the greater good of people,then this film is for you.
Already creating an Oscar buzz, Kathryn Bigelow's chronicle of the decade long hunt for 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden may be the years most controversial film.
It is a study of the unsung hero's who worked behind the scenes to take down Bin Laden.
There is ZERO political agenda in the film,it was originally slated for release in October but Sony decided to move the release date to December,to no affect the elections.
Don't be surprised if this gets an Oscar for best film.

Django Unchained
Dec 25th
Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington
Not Yet Rated

Jamie Fox plays a vengeful slave in the antebellum south.
This film doesn't take the topic of slavery lightly,"Its not truth per se, but there is truth in it." says Kerry Washington who plays Foxx's wife, Broomhilda the captive of an evil plantation owner(Leonardo DiCaprio).
Tarantino says she is "making an homage to important moments in history and historical cinema,while reinventing the wheel."

This is 40
Dec 21st
Directed by: Judd Apatow
Paul Rudd, Megan Fox, Albert Brooks, Laslie Mann, Jason Siegel
Rated - R

This is the sequel to Knocked up and it catches up when they both turn 40,a milestone that leads to breakdowns and crises.
Should be a good sequel.

On The Road
Dec 21st
Directed by: Walter Salles
Kristen Stewart,Kirsten Dunst,Garrett Hedlund
Not Yet Rated

After decades of stops and starts Jack Kerouac's autobiographical,generation defining 1957 novel is finally hitting the big screen.
Kerouacs alter ego Sal tags along with the magnetic but narcissistic Dean (Garret Hedlund) as he crisscrosses the country on a constant quest for sex,drugs and kicks.
This film caused a stir at this year Cannes film festival for its frequent nude scenes,many featuring Twilight star Kristen Stewart as Dean's sex crazed wife,Marylou.
People will either love or hate this film and I think that is something that Kristen Stewart is used to by now.
I'm sure many people will watch the film just to see the nude scenes.

Hyde Park On Hudson
Dec 7th
Directed by: Roger Mitchell
Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Olivia Williams
Rated - R

Bill Murray is the leading man in a film for the first time since Broken Flowers.
In an unlikely turn he play Franklin D. Roosevelt during a historic 1939 weekend meeting with England's King George VI (Samuel West),who's trying to secure American support on the brink of World War Two.
Adapted by Richard Nelson from his 2009 BBC radio play ,the film is told in part from the perspective of Margaret "Daisy" Stuckly (Laura Linney), FDR's cousin and confidante.

Thanks for reading, I hope you will let me know what you think about these films when they are released in the comment form below.

Steve O has a hit show with Killer Karaoke

Steve O is back on television again with a funny new show called Killer Karaoke.
It is on Tru Tv every Friday night at 9 pm.
Last week they had a girl who was dipped into ice cold water,then they added more ice,then they added snakes,then even bigger snakes while the girl who was sitting on a swing was continually dipped into freezing water,Steve O tells them whatever happens do not stop singing.
Up next was a poor guy who was covered with balloons and had to put on a pair of goggles that makes you drunk,so he's singing and walking into cactus while Steve O occasionally blows a horn in his ear scaring him, not to mention the fact that they are dropping bags full of dust onto his head while he continues trying to sing.
Ok after those 2 contestants get finished then the audience votes who did a better job and the winner makes it to the finals,and a chance at $10.000.00.
I don't want to ruin the show by telling you everything that happens but I will say that the finals and winning the 10k is hard,the final 3 try to stay on the wheel while it is spinning and other contestants knock each other off,anyway on the episode I watched the winner got $5.500.00.
Here are some other things that happened on the episode I watched

  • A lady was strapped into a suite with a guy who slapped her in the face with a fish
  • A guy was strapped to a table while women removed his body hair with wax 
  • A guy was shocked with dog collars while attempting to serve Steve O dinner.
  • A guy had to walk a plank,with fish guts,scorpions,snakes,alligators etc.
To say this show is funny is an understatement,it is hilarious and Steve O makes the perfect host.
I am glad that Steve O is sober and back to work.
I also love the punch line whatever happens don't stop singing.

The top three XBOX 360 games of 2012 holiday season

If you want to make the gamer in your house very happy this year,I suggest you buy one of the following XBOX 360 games.

  • Call of Duty - Black Ops 2
  • Halo 4
  • Assassins Creed 3
My son had pre-ordered Call of Duty Balck Ops 2 and when it was released we went to Gamestop at midnight to pick it up,there was over 200 people in line!
We waited and picked it up the next day but that should give you an idea as to how awesome this game is.
I think it is the best game ever made for the XBOX 360.
Halo 4 is another game that I would recommend,it has  great online content but you will need a XBOX live subscription to get the most out of it.
Assassins Creed 3 is another much anticipated game,I have watched the demo videos on it and it looks like it will be the best Assassins creed yet.
I know it can be frustrating picking out games especially if you know nothing about them, but trust me if you buy any of these games you won't go wrong.
Have a great week & happy holidays to you & yours.

Top three smartphones for 2012 holiday season

In my opinion the top 3 phones for this holiday season are,the iphone 5, Samsung galaxy 3 and the HTC one X. Which phone is the best? I don't know.I own the HTC one X and it is awesome for pictures and video and has an exclusive beatsaudio built in,it runs off android and can capture pics from videos.I really can't find anything I don't like about it.The iphone 5 is a little buggy but it is loaded with apps.Apple is known for its amazing products and the iphone 5 is no exception.My friend bought the galaxy 3 and it is an amazing phone,I played with it for an hour and it is as good as any phone I have ever used.My friend said the only thing he didn't like about it was the battery runs down quickly.I told him about a free app I've been using called easy battery saver,he installed that and haven't had anymore problems.Anyway I hope this article helps you to find a great smartphone this year.I promise if you buy any of these 3 you will be happy.Have a great week.
