A Michigan cop calls 911 because he is convinced he and his wife have overdosed on marijuana brownies. They used a quarter ounce of marijuana to bake brownies. The two of them ate them all. Turns out, the wacky weed was confiscated from suspects.
“I think we’re dying,” he said. “We made brownies and I think we’re dead, I really do.”
The video is absolutely hysterical; wait for the reporters’ reaction.
Get this, the guy was never prosecuted! He was allowed to resign from the Dearborn Police Department and no further charges were pursued. Other incidents of police misconduct have since surfaced for the officer and his wife. On a separate occasion, 26-year old Stacy Sanchez (dumb cop’s wife), voluntarily told police investigators that she removed cocaine from her husband’s police cruiser that was part of the department’s drug dog training program. She then went on a reported three-week coke binge. Stacy Sanchez has not been charged criminally either.
Justice isn’t blind, it’s high.

No, not in person, on Victoria Rowell’s body! The actress donned a cotton strapless gown that she–get this–made herself! Her 2010 Emmy Awards gown featured the presidents face along with some sort of arabic looking symbols.
Rowell’s homemade homage to Obama definitely turned heads. Isn’t that what starlets want anyway—attention?

That’s right, Leno brings the billigerent bad-ass to the verge of tears. After Sunday night’s outburst at the VMA’s, Kanye West appeared on the season premiere of Jay Leno’s new show to answer for his behavior.
During Kanye’s apology for his disrespectful rant, his voice quivered, eyes filled with water and he hung his head. Leno invoked the rapper’s deceased mother, asking Kanye what his mother would have thought about his actions. After a long, awkward pause, West said this:
“So many celebrities, they never take the time off. I’ve never taken the time off to really — you know, just music after music and tour after tour. I’m just ashamed that my hurt caused someone else’s hurt. My dream of what awards shows are supposed to be, ’cause, and I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. That’s period. But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve.”
Translation: I did it because I never take any time off (and that is Taylor Swift’s fault). I was wrong and now I will be going into hiding until this all blows over.
In case you missed West’s drunken rant during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, here you go.

That’s right, Simon has a new sidekick for the upcoming season of American Idol. Not another Kara DioGuardi (who knew her before Idol anyway?), in fact she is the polar opposite. Ellen DeGeneres, self-proclaimed lesbian, impromptu dancer and comedian, announced the breaking news during a taping of her talk show just yesterday.
Sending the pop culture media into a frenzy, the announcement comes on the heels of the departure of the great Paula Abdul. The ninth season of American Idol premieres in January, it should be interesting to see what Ellen brings to the table.
Let’s face it…the A.I. ship was sinking, they had to revive it somehow. What better way than with a judge that has absolutely no vocal background.

It’s hard for me to discard the images from an interview, some 7 years ago, where a blatant and belligerent Whitney Houston proclaimed that she and Bobby (Brown) didn’t do cocaine. In an attempt to clear her name, Whitney’s babble only made matters worse.
“First of all, let’s get one thing straight. Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack. Let’s get that straight. Okay? We don’t do crack. We don’t do that. Crack is whack.” Houston to Diane Sawyer, 2002.
Are you serious? You make too much money to do crack? Comments from the high-class addict only ignited the firestorm surrounding her. The singing sensation would receive elevated exposure and constant condemnation in the years to come for that infamous remark.
But now, in 2009, Whitney attempts a comeback. A new album, I Look To You and appearances on the Oprah show and Good Morning America should give the comeback a promising attempt. It “should” be a promising attempt…Whitney on GMA (skip to 3 mins, 30 seconds): Me and Bobby’s baby.
That is pitiful. “Me and Bobby’s baby?” Give me a break! Yeah, the kid is cute and all, but giving her a solo and a shout-out to her ex-husband during your supposed comeback concert…not cute at all.
Good Luck Whitney.

The fall season of Dancing With The Stars announced its latest victims on August 17th to Good Morning America. Among the cast of sixteen is 24-year-old Brit, Kelly Osbourne. Below, Kelly heads to practice for her latest gig.
Among other accolades, the Osbourne is classified as singer, actress and media personality. Daughter to rock icon, Ozzy Osbourne (perhaps best known for biting the heads off birds) and t.v. personality Sharon Osbourne, Kelly got her start at the age of 16. The first-ever “celebrity reality” TV show, “The Osbournes,” featured her famous family and won anem an Emmy Award for “Outstanding Reality Program” in 2002.
It will be interesting to see if Kelly is the first celeb to break a bone, twist a ligament or pass out on live television. The suspense is killing you, I am sure.
