This story has certainly been the highlight of my morning!
Over the weekend, A mugger, Anthony Miranda, attempted to rob a man in one on Chicago’s Southwest side neighborhoods and ended up getting the beating of his life.
The man he attempted to rob was actually an ultimate fighter and martial arts expert.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Anthony Miranda approached a parked vehicle near 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue Friday night and asked the driver for a lighter before pointing a handgun at the man and demanding money. After the driver handed over some cash, Miranda reportedly ordered him out of the car — which was apparently a mistake.
Chicago Police Officer John Mirabelli told the Sun-Times what happened next:
We have three celebrity birthdays to celebrate today! Happy birthday shout out to Keri Hilson, Paula Patton and Lauren London!
While Hilson turns 29 today, actresses Paula Patton turns 36 and Lauren London is 27! And these stars have many reasons to celebrate today believe me.
Keri is currently on tour supporting her sophomore album ‘No Boys Allowed’ and is working up on a follow up and third album not yet titled. Paula Patton may be wife to R&B crooner, Robin Thicke, but let’s not forget she as many accomplishments on her own. She’ll soon begin a promotional tour for her starring role in Tom Cruise‘s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. London can be seen in her latest role as Jentry on BET’s new sitcom ‘Reed Between The Lines’.
Well, this is refreshing! VH1′s ‘Single Ladies‘ has finally found their replacement for actress Stacey Dash! The new addition to the show will be Denise Vasi. Vasi is better known for her role on former soap ‘All My Children’. Great timing since the show has ended its 31 years run on ABC this past September.
Following the departure of Valerie (Dash), Vasi will play Raquel, a savvy business woman from a prominent southern family who’ll join Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy) and April (Charity Shea) on their quest for true love and passion.
I see Rihanna is keeping the blond hair she wore on her “U Da One” video shoot.
The star performed a number of her past and current hits including current #1 single “We Found Love” during the annual Jingle Bell Ball in London’s O2 Arena over the weekend. Although it’s not my one of my favorite performances of her’s she did look like she was having lots of fun.
Usher‘s longtime collaborator and friend Rico Love was treated to a huge celebration for his 29th birthday. Usher, Mary J. Blige and Sean P.

After announcing her breast cancer diagnosis this past October on NBC’s ‘The Today Show’E! news correspondent, Giuliana Rancic is making yet another shocking announcement. The TV personality and reality star has decided to undergo a double mastectomy.

In a pre-taped interview with ABC’s 20/20, Beyonce spoke with news anchor Katie Couric about the many baby rumors circulating the internet, including those fake bump rumors, her protective mom, her husband, Jay Z‘s, excitement, the best part of being pregnant and her intimate concerts at Roseland ballroom in New York City.
If you missed it, the interview aired late Friday night and here’s a bit of recap.
After Greeting Katie Rubs Beyonce’s Stomach And Bey Touches Her Hand. Katie then asked if it was okay.
Bey: “It’s Okay….”
When Asked If She Gets Belly Rubs All The Time
“Not as crazy as you’d think, It’s been fine. (But not excluding her family of course), I can’t walk. I have someone holding and hugging. It’s gonna be so much love around the baby. It’s great.”
On Announcing Her Pregnancy During The VMA’s:
“News that’s that big its hard to hide and keep to yourself. I felt so liberated and I felt like I can breathe and be happy. It was a beautiful feeling and I went straight off the stage and just cried. I hugged my mom, I hugged Jay and just cried.”
I’m still not quite sure how she did this but ‘Hoopz’ got a strong back! Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander may have garnered some fame from the first season of Flava Flav’s ‘Flavor Of Love’ but the reality TV star has become quite famous for her relationship with former Orlando Magic’s player Shaquille O’Neal. The couple, who began dating last summer, appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night and demonstrated, a 5ft’2′, Hoopz ability to lift and carry the enormous 7ft’1′ athlete on her back!
Her heels hindered her a bit but this actually hasn’t been the first time she’s done this. Seriously, somebody should give this girl a medal. Lol
Britney Spear‘s accomplishments are immeasurable, to say the least. In the past 12 years she has sold over 100 million albums world wide, is the best-selling female artist of the first decade of the 21st century (the fifth overall) and have touch the lives and hearts of millions of fans around the world. Today we take the time to acknowledge all she has contributed to the entertainment industry and wish her a very happy birthday!!! Many more Ms. Spears. Cheers!
Here’s a video MTV put together for the star in honor of her most memorable looks from her music videos.
Oh My! Atlanta Sheriff deputies refused to evict a 103-year-old woman and her 83-year-old daughter moments before they were to leave their home this past Tuesday, November 29th, 2011. The moving company hired by the bank also decided not assist in moving the two women out.
The two women have shared the home for 53 years! Just three weeks shy of her 104th birthday, Vita Lee says, “I love it. It’s a mansion.”
Channel 2′s Ryan Young was present at the home to capture the family’s excitement.
It’s nice to see some people still have hearts. The economy has been rough on millions of Americans across the country. It would have been a sad day if these two women were evicted. But I wonder how they bank took the news?!
Happy 24th birthday Teairra Mari! The singer, who already has several mixtapes under her belt, has many reasons to celebrate today. She recently signed a deal with singer/songwriter Rico Love and is currently working on her long awaited debut album. She’s even made her reality TV debut recently on VH1′s hit show ‘Love & Hip Hop’. We’ll have to wait and see how big of a role she’ll play on the show though, but I’m betting 2012 will be promising for the young star. Happy Birthday Teairra.
Hmmm…I didn’t know she was still so young. Enjoy hun!
