Octomom is in trouble! Nadya Suleman, 38, is facing three counts of welfare fraud in a Los Angeles County Superior Court. It seems the mother of 14 (yes that’s right she has 14 kids) failed to report $30,000 that she made from movie video residuals. Suleman became famous when she delivered 8 children on 1/26/09. They (along with her other 6 kids) were conceived by vitro fertilization and to this day she has never disclosed the father of the children. She could face up to 5 years and 8 months in prison. Come on judge … she has 14 kids and no child support can’t we let her slide on the $30 K ???
The NFL will decide who plays in the Super Bowl this weekend as the New England Patriots play at Denver and the San Francisco 49ers travel to Seattle. Both games should be classic battles that feature top defenses (SF and Seattle), top offenses (NE and Denver), top quarterbacks (Tom Brady & Peyton Manning), top running backs (Marshawn Lynch, Frank Gore, Lagarrette Blount & Knowshon Moreno) and top head coaches (Jim Harbaugh, Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll and John Fox). My pick for the big game is San Francisco -v- Denver!
Happy Birthday Michelle Obama! The First Lady turns 50 today and plans to celebrate by dancing the night away at her party called, “Snacks & Sips & Dips & Dancing & Dessert”. It will be interesting to see how many celebrities join the gala event. Other First Ladies who threw elaborate White House parties when they turned 50 include Mamie Eisenhower and Hillary Clinton.
Pat Benatar and the Beach Boys have joined nine other main acts in canceling their performances with Busch Gardens. Since Busch Gardens is associated with Sea World, these acts decided not to perform at the theme park due to the controversy surrounding the 2013 documentary Blackfish that deals with the mistreatment of killer whales. Previously Willie nelson, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride, Heart and Trish Yearwood (among others) dropped out of Sea World’s Bands, Brew & BBQ Music Series. Benatar and The Beach Boys are the first to drop out of a Busch Gardens event. In my opinion these acts are 100% wrong. I think Sea World does a great job rescuing sea animals, teaching and caring for aquatic creatures.
Last but not least … Russell Johnson passed away yesterday at the age of 89. You may not know his real name but you will know what character he played on television. Johnson was “The Professor” on Gilligan’s Island. His passing leaves only Dawn Wells (Mary Anne) and Tina Louise (Ginger) alive from the original cast … The average cost of a domestic round-trip airline ticket has increased to $363.42 in 2013. Thanks to mergers, less flights and the out-right greed of airlines … The Chuck E. Cheese franchise was just purchased by Apollo Global management for $1.3-billion. That’s a lot of pizza! … Have a fantastic weekend everybody !!!
