Say It Ain't So Morgan Freeman!

The Post Chronicle is reporting on this bizarre story involving actor Morgan Freeman having an affair with his 27 year-old step-granddaughter E'Dena Hines. Freeman, 72, and one of our most beloved actors raised Hines along with his wife Myrna since she was a little girl. This report which originates from the National Enquirer is strictly rumor at this point, but the Enquirer was right on the John Edwards story.

Stallworth Suspended Indefinitely By NFL!

Commissioner Roger Goodell did the right thing yesterday and suspended wide receiver Donte' Stallworth indefinitely for his guilty plea this week on DUI manslaughter charges. Stallworth, who is presently serving 30 days in jail for killing pedestrian Mario Reyes, hopefully will be suspended for the entire season. His wealth undoubtedly contributed to reaching a monetary settlement with the Reyes family, and the minimal sentence in terms of jail time. Goodell has always said that playing in the NFL is a privilege, so the right thing is for Stallworth's work privileges to be revoked for at least one season.

George Bush Is Speaking Now!

The Washington Times reports that Former President George Bush has now decided to take swipes at President Barack Obama's policies while speaking to a group of local business people in Erie, PA. yesterday. Specifically Bush is critical of health care reform, stating that the private sector not government will fix the economy and stating that his interrogation policies were within the law. I guess I could really give Bush and the Republicans credibility if they'd done a credible job with the economy. Dumping on the current president 5 months into his presidency really sounds like sour grapes.

Donte' Stallworth Gets 30 Days In Jail For Killing Pedestrian!

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte' Stallworth pleaded guilty yesterday to DUI manslaughter in the March killing of pedestrian Mario Reyes. At the time Stallworth's blood alcohol level was .126 well above the legal limit. Apparently the family of Reyes urged for a quick resolution to the case. Stallworth will serve 30 days in jail, be under house arrest for 2 years and on probation for 8 years. His driving privileges have also been revoked for life. Of course Stallworth, who is 28, reached a settlement with the Reyes family, which was the right thing to do in this case. His football career should continue, although he is likely to be suspended by the league. Stallworth never denied liability in the case, although video shows that Reyes was not walking in the crosswalk at the time.

Many were comparing this case to the Michael Vick situation, but Vick's negligence was established over a period of years, and he never owned up to his involvement until the end, thus he lost everything.

Tameka Loves Husband and Children!

Yes Usher officially filed divorce papers late Friday afternoon in Fulton County, GA Superior Court to end his marriage to Tameka Foster Raymond. None of the involved parties have spoken but the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Foster Raymond has hired Randall M. Kessler, one of the Atlanta's most tenacious attorneys to represent her. Kessler issued the following statement on behalf of his client:

“All I can tell you is that my client loves her husband and she loves her children. She’s trying to keep this as private as possible.”

Here's wishing both Usher and Tameka the best, and hopefully they can settle things amicably.

Congrats To The Lakers!

The Los Angeles Lakers won their 15th championship last night defeating a nearly comatose Orlando Magic team. Kobe Bryant won his first 4th championship and first without Shaquille O'Neal. I guess all is right with the world now that Kobe has a ring without Shaq.
