Breaking Blog: Elmo Voice Kevin Clash Cleared Of All Sexual Misconduct Allegations, Accuser Recants Story!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

It hurt my heart yesterday to report such a sordid story regarding Elmo voice Kevin Clash. But now there seems to be a little hope appearing at the end of the tunnel.

Per the NYT:

Andreozzi & Associates, a law firm that said it represented the accuser said in a statement that “he wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.” The statement added, “He will have no further comment on the matter.”

The accuser’s identity has not been disclosed.

Mr. Clash said through a spokeswoman: “I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”

Sesame Workshop had no immediate comment on when Mr. Clash would return to work. But the organization said in a statement Tuesday afternoon, “We are pleased that this matter has been brought to a close, and we are happy that Kevin can move on from this unfortunate episode.”

Personally, I am glad this matter can come to a close. Although I am still discouraged that Mr. Clash would allow himself to become so vulnerable. Let it be a lesson people to be proactive so eager opportunists CANT get you.

RIP: Program Director Wayne Brown Loses Battle w/ Cancer!

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Information was just passed down to me regarding ATL radio legend Wayne Brown. Brown, who used to hold it down as the Program Director over at HOT 107.9, succumbed to his very quiet bout with cancer.

Per News One:

With more than three decades of experience across broadcasting and marketing, Brown, 55, was considered a true industry pioneer.

“Wayne was a wonderful human being,” said Ms. Catherine L. Hughes, Chairperson & Founder of Radio One, Inc., “he made you feel like you were the most important person in the world when you were with him.”

Brown who was the VP/GM of Radio One’s Atlanta market for eight years, was most recently the general manager of Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 FM.

Brown also served as senior partner and associate publisher of Who’s Who publishing company. Prior to Radio One he spent 13 years at CBS Headquarters in New York City working for network TV & radio.

Wayne was an awesome person. Period. He was instrumental in assisting me launch a radio career, that didn’t last long, on BeehiveFM. And, just recently was in talks about possibly coming on board in some capacity over at his new radio gig at 94.5.

Words cant express how saddened I am over this news. All his family is in my prayers.

Breaking Blog: 2 Attackers ID’d in Atlanta Gay Attack!

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

The vicious attack of Brandon White in the SW part of Atlanta has captured national attention. And as a result 2 of the 3 assaliants have been ID’d according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.

Per the AJC:

We’ve identified two of the three individuals, and we’re working on warrants,” Turner said Thursday night at an emergency public safety meeting organized by the Pittsburgh Community Improvement Association.

More than 70 people were at the meeting to discuss solutions for what they see as a problem with crime and violence that centers around the store at 1029 McDaniel Street, where Brandon White was beaten.

White’s attackers yelled anti-gay slurs during the beating Saturday. The video of the beating was posted online and had gone viral.

“I shouldn’t have to look over my shoulder just because I’m gay,” White told reporters during a news conference Wednesday. “Who’s to say they won’t try to come after me again? Who can say they won’t try to kill me?”

My hope is that ignorant and violent people of the world take heed to extreme punishment that’s headed in the assailants direction. Violence is never the answer. And while we focus so much on or differences we all need to learn that we are more alike then we can ever be different.

Chris Brown Flips On @GMA Set, Security Called!

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Chris Brown strikes again. It seems that this morning’s Good Morning America interview with Robin Roberts ended in melee after Robins continually asked Chris about the Rihanna incident.

Per TMZ:

ABC sources tell TMZ … Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident.

Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album — but Roberts continued to ask about Brown’s legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident.

Personally, I watched it live and was horrified at Brown’s body language. Particularly seeing as though Robins was the one who interviewed Chris back when his team was in mild damage control. “Good Morning America” was the only TV broadcast that had Browns back somewhat by at least attempting to get his side of the story.

So for reports to surface that Chris tore the GMA studio apart over questions about an act he had a great stake in participating in, it’s clear that CB is so lost that only his creator can penetrate.

This entire incident shows how some people simply lack the ability to grasp the concept of redemption. I’m very interested to see his album sales tomorrow. I still feel that F.A.M.E. is such an oxymoron. Because its clear that Chris isn’t forgiving ANYTHING.

Bitterness is such an ugly trait on a man.

Breaking News: @CharlieSheen Has Been Officially Fired From “Two & Half Men”!

Monday, March 7th, 2011

It looks like Charlie Sheen’s online rants have gotten the best of him. After all the media antics blaming CBS for the hiatus of his show, rather than himself, the trainwreck we all know as Charlie Sheen has officially been fired:

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately,” Warner Bros  Television said in a statement Monday.

Never passing up an opportunity to exploit and encourage the hollywood tragic scene, Harvey Levin’s TMZ reached out to Charlie for comment:

“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”

Networks stay LAWYERED up so I dunno how much “legal action” CBS has to be too concerned about. Trust me everybody will settle out of court and Charlie can smoke all the cocaine he wants.

Its so sad how people get the chance to change the world and fail TREMENDOUSLY
