Son of Reverend Run Arrested for Drug Possession

Jojo Simmons of Run's House Arrested for Drug Possession

Jojo Simmons, “star” of the MTV reality TV show Run’s House and son of Joseph Simmons– who puts the “Run” in Run DMC– was arrested Saturday and charged with drug possession and one count of resisting arrest.

Jojo Simmons, 19, was released on his own recognizance after being charged with two counts of possession of marijuana and a count of resisting arrest, officials said.

Police had initially slapped Simmons with attempted reckless endangerment, a felony charge, but a Manhattan judge Saturday gave the aspiring rapper a lighter rap.

Police said the hip-hop heir was behind the wheel of his BMW, which has “JoJo” embroidered on the head rests, rolling a joint when narcs knocked on his window Friday.

I don’t know what’s dumber– the fact that he sat in his car and rolled a joint in plain sight of whomever might happen to walk by, or the fact that he has “Jojo” embroidered on his headrests. Other sites are reporting that the attempted reckless endangerment charge mentioned above was added when he tried to flee, but slammed into two parked cars and was quickly apprehended.

His sister, Vanessa Simmons, responded to the arrest on Twitter, saying “As humans, we all make mistakes … they make up your life lessons and experiences … Jojo is ok, he just made a oops …”
Oh, to be rich and the son of someone famous! You get to learn so many valuable life lessons with so few consequences attached.
For my part, I am going to spend the rest of the day trying to process the unbelievable revelation that the son of a famous rapper smokes pot. Shocking.

Clay Aiken Snubbed by ‘Idol’

Clay Aiken

Let me put on my Cosby voice for a minute: You see kids, you can’t just go burnin’ bridges and then expect to be able to walk back across ‘em later on. Pudding pops.

The Enquirer is reporting
that when Clay Aiken visited the set of American Idol recently–without being invited or letting anyone know he was coming– he was given limited access, confined to break rooms and a few backstage areas, and then shuffled quickly and quietly out the door.

The purpose for his visit was supposedly because he wanted to have a talk with the contestants– Adam Lambert in particular, who is said to be his favorite– and offer them advice and mentoring from someone who has been there before… the key words in that phrase being  “has been.”

Producers and reps from “American Idol” have had a long-simmering feud with Clay because he was one of the first contestant to bolt from 19 Entertainment, the management company that oversees the recording deals, merchandising, touring, sponsorship, and movie deals for “Idol” stars.

Network execs believe that Clay encouraged Kelly Clarkson to cut her ties with the show as well.

“They’ve always held a grudge against Clay for that,” revealed the insider. “So when he showed up at the ‘Idol’ studios and asked if he could give a little pep talk to the remaining finalists, they told Clay thanks… but no thanks.

“It was made clear to him that he was not welcome.”

People are speculating that visit may not have been motivated purely out of concern for the wellbeing of the remaining contestants, but might actually have been *gasp!* a self-serving and desperate attempt at reviving his own career. The 30 year old was dropped from his record label, RCA, late last year, and like a college kid hauling his empty stomach and his dirty laundry home to mom & dad on the weekend, has no place to go except back to Idol.

UW-La Crosse Names Eagle Mascot ‘Colbert’

Fake political pundit Stephen Colbert may not have a module of the International Space Station named after him, but he’s not doing too shabby. In his seemingly endless quest to cover the world (and even outer space) with objects named after him, the students at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse have done Colbert a solid and christened their eagle mascot “Colbert.”

More than 3,100 students participated in the vote. The results were announced Friday.

Colbert received 44 percent of the votes, followed by Ernie with 14 percent and Edgar and Screech with 11 percent each.A Comedy Central spokesman said the fake political pundit wouldn’t comment on the honor.The university of 10,000 originally chose the name Eddie. But the National Rifle Association said it trademarked that name for its gun-safety mascot.

Who needs a room in the space station when you’ve got your own college mascot? Now there’s a legacy.

Also.. .the NRA has a mascot? Named Eddie? You know I couldn’t let that one go without further investigation, so here’s a picture of NRA Eddie with what is either a gun safety slogan for kids or advice about what Natlie Portman should do the next time she sees Sean Penn.


Fergie Wants to Make Sure You Know She Has Breasts


Just in case you hadn’t noticed them before, she put a big ole star on them and framed them with a… is that a gun holster? What is that?

The Dutchess did her best Tomb Raider impression on the red carpet at this Saturday’s 102.7 KIIS FM Wango Tango event– which does not refer to a Ted Nugent song, but a Summer Concert held in Irvine, CA.

Lady Gaga was also present, but turned the corner from delightfully insane antics to just plain old pyschosis when she started laying wet ones on Perez Hilton. Let’s all hope she soon goes back to talking to her tea cups.

Vaginas Are Vaginas; It Won’t Be the First You’ve Seen and it Won’t Be the Last


Sasha reported on Thursday about nude photos of singer Cassie Ventura that were supposedly stolen from her computer when someone “hacked” into it.  In those publicity shots leaked photographs, you could really only see her breasitcles, and Cassie herself responded to the leak, saying, “At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren’t the first you’ve seen and they won’t be the last…”

I hope she has equally sage advice for the masses when it comes to vaginas. Today, even raunchier photos of Cassie surfaced, including one very, very NSFW picture of her, taken from the business end of a spread eagle with nothing between you and her Cervix but a few piercings. Take a peek.

I think if I was going to allow  some guy with a camera unlimited access to my ovaries, I’d at least make sure I had some good lighting. Nothing worse than a poorly-lit pussy shot. In fact, this photo is shady in a number of different ways. In the first “leaked” pics she had her hair and makeup done and actually looked attractive, while this one is of much poorer quality and makes her look disgustng. People are saying that’s her, but it doesn’t look like the same person to me. What do you think?

Tobey Maguire & Wife Welcome Baby Boy

Tobey Maguire Married Jennifer Meyer in Hawaii

Actor Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer welcomed a new little face to the family this Saturday.

“I can confirm the Maguires had a baby boy today and the family is healthy and happy,” Maguire’s rep tells Us Weekly.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2007, are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Ruby Sweetheart.

I just thought I’d remind you that they named their daughter Ruby Sweetheart. Like you could forget.

The name of the new baby boy hasn’t been released, but one can only hope that this time the couple will decide upon a name that does not sound like either a Racehorse or a character from Rainbow Brite. Or a stripper. Or a variety of grapefruit.

WTF Happened to Adriana Lima?

Ariana Lima About to Pass Out

Adriana Lima used to be my “one.” And I don’t mean “one” in the sense Jack Donaghy meant it on that episode of 30 Rock a few weeks ago. I mean the “one” as in the answer to the question straight people like to ask each other when the party is winding down, they’ve had too much to drink to be able to go to sleep right away, and there is nothing but 1970′s reruns of Soul Train on TV. That is, “Who would you swap teams for?”

For one friend, the answer to that question (his “one”) was David Bowie– which is questionable because David Bowie is not really on anyone’s team, except maybe Iggy Pop’s.

But my “one” was Adriana Lima. I’ve been getting the Victoria’s Secret catalog since I was 17 years old and have always been intrigued by the sultry brunette with the pouty lips.

Lately however, every time I’ve seen her she’s been less and less attractive. It’s not as if she looks terrible. It’s just that she doesn’t look nearly as sexy as she used to. I can’t quite put my finger on it.  She just always looks disheveled. It’s as if there is just something– her hair, her makeup, her posture– that is a little off each time, like a functioning alcoholic struggling to keep her appearance up.

What you see above is what was left of her when she attended the launch of Victoria’s Secret’s new Noir collection this Saturday in New York. In the gallery, you can also see a hilarious picture of her trying to look sexy with a very unhappy pussy.

I’m going to have to find a new “one.”
