Bill Cosby

Found

Guilty!

by Sierra Silverspoon

Bill Cosby Convicted:  Comedian Bill Cosby was convicted on Thursday of drugging and molesting a onetime friend in 2004, marking the first such conviction of a celebrity since the #MeToo movement that has brought down rich and powerful men for their treatment of women.  Cosby, 80, best known as the lovable father from the 1980s TV hit “The Cosby Show,” faces up to 10 years in prison for each of three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, 45, following a three-week trial at the Montgomery County courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.  Cosby looked down with a sad expression when the Pennsylvania jury’s verdict was read. Lily Bernard, one of his many accusers, began sobbing. Constand sat stone-faced.  Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that Cosby could remain out of jail on $1 million bail pending sentencing at a later date.  Victims of Cosby sitting in the Norristown, PA, courtroom shrieked and cried in delight after the first verdict was announced. The comic sat forward on the edge of his chair, showing little emotion. But when Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele began addressing bail, Cosby became animated. Steele pleaded for him to be jailed immediately, saying he was a flight risk and owned a plane. Cosby, who had been silent throughout the trial, shouted back.  “He doesn’t have a plane, you a–hole,” said Cosby, referring to himself in the third person, his voice shaking. “He doesn’t know.”

The Clown Show Exposed:  The conservative social media personalities known as Diamond and Silk claimed under oath at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday that they were never paid for their consulting work by President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.  Federal campaign finance filings show otherwise.  “We have never been paid by the Trump campaign,” Lynette Hardaway, who goes by Diamond, told Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas).  Filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show that the campaign paid the duo $1,275 on November 22, 2016 for “field consulting.”  The two later backtracked under questioning from Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), explaining that the Trump campaign had reimbursed them for airfare after they traveled to a campaign event. (Does that make sense?) They insisted that they had never been paid for consulting work.  “We are familiar with that particular lie, we can see that you do look at fake news,” said Rochelle Richardson, the other half of Diamond and Silk, when the New York Democrat brought up the FEC receipt.  “I’m just trying to figure out who is lying here,” Jeffries said.  The two were invited by House Republicans to testify on social media companies’ alleged bias against conservatives.  Earlier this month, the duo received a message from Facebook saying that their videos were deemed “unsafe.” Facebook later said it was sent in error.  Makes you wonder…

Kelis Reveals Violent Relationship With Former Husband Nas:  BOSSIP reports the ongoing custody struggle between Nas and Kelis is head-scratching to most people, but Kelis is finally speaking out about the alleged character of her ex-husband Nasir and she says she’s unfortunately always had to deal with similar behavior, even when they were “happily” married. Kelis sat for over an hour with Hollywood Unlocked, telling detailed stories of the extreme highs and “dark” twisted lows of their relationship. It’s nothing short of shocking!  One unfortunate fight between the two, allegedly caused her and her son to be homeless. She claims she used tour money to put down a huge down-payment on an L.A. home for herself, Nas and their baby-to-be at the time, Knight. Nas had agreed to pay the mortgage. Fast forward, when Kelis took a break to be with her family and give birth, after allegedly enduring so much pain in the relationship, she came back to a foreclosure notice!  Nas ceased to pay on the house, telling her to “go f-ck herself”.  She adds. “When the Rihanna and Chris Brown pictures came out I thought about coming out because I also had bruises all over my body. But I didn’t say anything because I’m private. But seeing her the way she looked and then looking at myself… I felt embarrassed.” Kelis insinuates Nas has a drinking issue and claims he’d black out and forget they had been physically fighting the night before. WOW! This is shocking to say the least.

Suit Dismissed Against Wendy Williams:  Blac Chyna’s mother’s $1 million lawsuit against Wendy Williams, in which she claimed the sharp-tongued talk-show host made comments that caused her “stress and depression,” has been dismissed.  A judge told Chyna’s mom Tokyo Toni, whose real name is Shalana Jones-Hunter, in February that if she failed to prove she had served Williams with the lawsuit the case would be dismissed, according to The Blast.  By April 10, Williams apparently hadn’t yet been served, so the judge dismissed Toni’s lawsuit, which claimed defamation of character, slander and harassment.  Toni, who was representing herself, didn’t show up to court to face the judge, The Blast reported.  The celebrity mom claimed in her handwritten lawsuit that the constant “negative light” Williams cast upon her caused her to lose sleep and affected her relationship, claiming it has been “compromised due to [Williams’] lies.”  She also claimed Williams caused her a “lifetime of pain and suffering,” and said she had to quit her jobs as an Uber and Lyft driver because of the stress of Williams’ “lies.”  “I am highly depressed and my blood pressure is up,” she claimed in the lawsuit.

I invited a guy out for coffee after a meeting and he asked if his girlfriend could come. I ended up with both of them in my car kissing in the back seat.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  I feel like an idiot.  At a book club meeting recently, I decided to be bold and invited this very attractive guy to join me for coffee after the meeting. I’d been admiring him for awhile, and I thought I’d take a chance.  Well, it turned out that he didn’t have a car, and I offered him a ride.  However, to my dismay, when we got outside, he asked if his “girlfriend” (who was also in the meeting looking unattached) could join us. I was floored.  I couldn’t understand how I missed the link between them, but I nodded a reluctant yes.  Hence, the both of them ended up in the back seat of my car kissing all the way to the café.  MORE

“Ghosting”

Who’s Done

It And Why…

 by Coco Diong

Ghosting”A dating term defining the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication.

Often in the world of romance, lovers are suddenly dropped with no explanation or communication.  This action can literally drive the “ghostee” nuts, but it’s a common occurrence in the realm of relationships, because the “ghoster” usually doesn’t want any drama or lacks the courage to be upfront.  In my research, I found several men and women who confessed to being guilty of “ghosting” someone with no explanation and who also agreed to reveal the reasons for their abrupt exits.   MORE

Single Scenarios

What Would You Do?

by Lisa Laird

Scenario:  You’re at the party with your “honey” and he/she leaves you to talk to someone of the opposite sex. They are gone too long and your jealous button is pushed.  You go over, ignore the person they’re talking to, and pull them away. You express your dislike in no uncertain terms and you cause a scene, or you simply stay where you are, sulk and say nothing.

Point Of View

Not Married

Yet?…So What!

by Margot Haller

At thirty-seven, I’ve never been married and I use to hate to admit that fact.  I’ve never been engaged either and I’ve always felt a certain emptiness inside about not ever being asked.  To me, to be married meant you had achieved the greatest fulfillment in life by becoming a part of someone legally.   I used to walk around feeling as if I had failed at something, but I was never quite sure at what.   MORE

Rising Rape

Reports On

Illinois Universities

By Abigail Dye

On-campus rape in Illinois is on the rise according to multiple Annual Safety and Security Reports. In 2014, there was a total of six rapes reported at the University of Chicago (UC). In 2016, a total of 15 rapes were reported. This means that the reported rapes at UC grew 150 percent in two years. 13 of the 15 rapes reported in 2016 (86 percent) took place in university residence halls. Unfortunately, these rising rape reports are not uncommon for colleges in Illinois. In 2014, Northwestern University (NWU) reported a total of four rapes, three of which took place in campus residence halls.   MORE
