    @Passing Through: I believe Usher’s wife, would be in so much pain, after the passing of her son, she would not be thinking about Usher. She is killing herself hating on her x husband. He must be kicking himself for turning his back on his mother for her and all he gets in return is grief. Let’s hope he learned his lesson.

    I’m hoping we get a new set of photos today from Brad’s set.

    THANKS I was too nervous to check the news.

    and I’m sorry I don’t think they gave her the props she should have gotten. That girl kept it together for the entire Olympics. And I’m so so happy for her. and her family.

    congrats to all the winners and participates. Women Gymnastics was just out of this world this year.

    Oops…I thought the gymnastics was over…turns out Douglas didn’t win by as much as I thought because there was 1 more gymnast to go. She won by .259, but winning is winning. It looks like Raisman TIED for the bronze but the standings say she’s in 4th.

    ITA. NBC’s coverage of the team competition disgusted me. They kept going on about the Weiber girl bouncing baCk and totally ignored the fact that she didn’t even compete in all 4 apparati – and was never scheduled to. Only Gabby Douglas was scheduled to and did compete in all 4. She turned in a solid routine every time and NBC glossed over it and kept blubbering on about Wieber – who Douglas outscored on 2 of the 3 apparati even during the team competition! I finally had to turn the sound down.

    I was just at Deadline and accidentally discovered the reason LaToya Jackson has been AWOL from the family in-fighting. One word for ya – OKRA. According to Deadline the OWN Network just revealed it’s fall line-up of shows and it includes a reality show with LaToya Jackson called “Life With LaToya”. So at least one of the siblings was out there trying to get a J-O-B. She was obviously trying not to eff up her new reality gig. The description of the show crackes me up because I didn’t realize LaToya had a “business” let alone a “growing entertrainment business empire.”

    The Oprah Winfrey Network today announced in advance of TCA its fall programming lineup, ordering three new series for fall and three more for 2013 including a new reality show with La Toya Jackson entitled Life With La Toya…Life With La Toya promises to feature Jackson as she “juggles the many demands of her famous family, her lifelong friends, and her growing entertainment business empire”.

    She is as over hyped as the other Miss Sunshine except the other one has won a few grand-slams. She has a terrible game. All she does is run down all the balls and hopes her opponent makes an error. She has tired herself out, just like Jelena Jancavic. You have to have some offense in your game.
    -
    Even if she dumps her coach it wont matter. It’s her playing style. The same thing with Murray, that’s why he hasn’t been able to win a slam yet. He’ll play aggressive for one set and then go back to his natural style..running down all the balls, until your opponent makes an error. It doesn’t work against RF, Rafa and Nole.

    It’s totally true about some actors/actresses getting comfortable in one type of role. It’s sad when you see people who have great potential, ( I’m not talking about Aniston, eww) doing the same character, remake after remake because it’s a known money maker
    .
    I know it’s hard to turn down the money, not to mention the continued success where the public is concerned, but there are those few that seem to remain relevant doing new things.
    .
    I like people like Pitt and Tarantino because they are film lovers. They think in terms of all facets of movie making. With an actor like Pitt, it gives him a different outlook than someone who is only looking at making a movie from one perspective.
    .
    I’d rather listen to Pitt and Tarantino talk about the process of film making than watch some actors perform.

    I like watching David, have done so since he was on Design Star. After he won, I didn’t watch much of Design Star. They just didn’t seem to have the talented people anymore. I’ve watched it a bit this year and it’s was much better. I think people like having David on the show as well. He’s seems to have been given a lot of responsibility on HGTV. Good for him!

    I also like Candace and Genevieve and Meg on hGTV. Chip Wade, the carpenter from Curb Appeal the Block has a show and he’s very good. Imo better than the host of Curb Appeal. I’m peeved that they replaced Ahmed Hassan on Yard Crashers. Grrrrrrrr! I don’t even watch it anymore, only re-runs of Ahmed. I love house crashers (Josh is crazy) and bath crashers too.

    Jezebel’s been talking about the hair tweets for a few days now. I laughed because if they look at her mother’s hair – it’s the same way. You see so many black women with these long ass weaves and fake hair now (Beyonce, raise your hand…) that some black women don’t know what real hair looks like anymore. Weaves/extensions/wigs have become a national epidemic – and not just for black women. Women no longer want to wait for their hair to grow naturally. Or they want flexibility to go from long to short back to long. I remember the old “Is it real or Memorex?” commercials. Now days it’s – “Is it her real hair or a weave?”

    Rory McIlroy is Wozniacki’s boyfriend not coach. He’s the current boy-wonder golfer and supposedly the next Tiger. He won the US Open last year by a landslide when they first started dating and has sucked since then. That’s pretty much when Wozniacki’s mediocrity caught up with her, too. He’s admitted to not practicing as much since they got together but with her it’s just a coincidence. The analysts though carry on like she’d be winning slams if she didn’t have a boyfriend to distract her. No she wouldn’t. She’s semi-finalist material at her best. And don’t get me started on Sharapova…

    ‘Killing Them Softly’ Trailer: The Splendid Reunion of Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt

    Posted on Thursday, August 2nd, 2012 by Russ Fischer

    Here’s the trailer for Andrew Dominik‘s new film, Killing Them Softly. We’ve been waiting to see more footage from this one, especially after the tease provided by the one previously released clip. The trailer shows two dumbasses (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) robbing a mob card game run by Ray Liotta, and how Richard Jenkins calls in a quiet enforcer, played by Brad Pitt, to track them down.

    This footage looks fantastic, and I think anyone who’s been hungry to see Dominik’s long-awaited return to directing will be even more ready for the film after watching. There’s not much more to say; check it out below.

    So I’d be OK if Johnny Cash’s ‘When the Man Comes Around’ hadn’t been used again, but I’m told it is used in the film as well, and so it’s not just a way to dress up the trailer. And I’ll admit that the song works well here.

    We also get a little taste of the film’s politics, which were a talking point when the movie premiered at Cannes. I just want to see Dominik working with this collection of actors, but if the director’s point comes across (he talked about creating “kind of a cynical take on things, a sort of godless, faithless universe”) then so much the better.

    ‘Killing Them Softly’ Trailer: Brad Pitt Delivers as a Bad-Ass Hitman (Video)
    Published: August 02, 2012 @ 11:00 am
    By C. Molly Smith

    “Killing Them Softly” stars Brad Pitt as hitman Jackie Cogan who — you guessed it — likes to kill his victims softly.

    The New Orleans-set crime-thriller, from director and screenwriter Andrew Dominik, follows Cogan in his investigation of a mob-protected poker game that went awry.

    “Have you ever killed anyone?” Cogan asks. “They cry, they plea, they beg for their mothers. I like to kill them softly, from a distance.”

    Cogan may stay under the radar, but if the film’s first trailer is any indication, bad-assery is still likely to follow suit.

    The film, which is based on the George V. Higgins novel “Cogan’s Trade,” also stars Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins and James Gandolfini.

    “Killing Them Softly” hits theaters Oct. 19. In the meantime, check out the trailer:

    Far be it from me to tell anyone what to do – these forums are free for alls as we all know. But I had bratty younger brothers so I’m used to sophomoric gnats buzzing around like the guyz from the D. They’re just hoping to get up in your buisness enough to annoy you. I mean seriously what can you say about people who waste their time making it their business to get up in your business and complain about what you do with your time. LOL! That’s all it’s about. Nothing more.
    .
    They ain’t paying your bills so they’re useless and irrelevant. If they were witty or clever or even informative it’d be amusing but they can’t even pull that off. Calling women whales? Yea, that’s a major diss – for a 40 something male who lives with his cats.
    .
    Again, I love this trailer. It reminds me of Chopper a bit. I am glad that Dominick is on this and that Pitt has reteamed with him. The film lovers’ favorite that is The Assassination of Jesse James deserves a fitting follow up. I hope this turns out to be that.

    If someone’s ragging on Gabby’s hair you can best believe it’s the same black women hair police that lie in wait for Zahara (and Angelina). Allison Samuels that wretch, was the police captain. Oddly enough, Zee was sportin her natural do’ and was criticized, and gaby, apparently has her hair relaxed, or pressed and slicked down and is still getting grief. Little black girls cannot win at the Olympic HAIR games, apparently. lol The real deal though?? Well, Gabby looks like she has a pony tail weave, there’s a lump at the top and it bulges out giving her head an odd shape. Hair is probably the least of Gaby’s worries, but it’s said she trains and lives away from home – and out of the country, so consequently there might be very few places to get her hair ‘did’ where she lives. Hence the odd do’. Do I sound critical? I hope not. I personally don’t care about Gaby’s hair – she’s a beautiful accomplished girl who makes me proud. But way WAY down on her priority list, should, at some point, be an appt to get that conehead ponytail fixed.
