Well, Julia Pierson, the director of secret service, resigned yesterday…which is not a surprise. There have been a few security breaches within the last few months and like she said, it’s in the best interest of the Secret Service and the American public if she steps down. Congress had lost confidence in her ability to run the agency and that concern drove her to resign.

October 1st News

The US has experienced its first case of the Ebola virus in Dallas Texas. Eric Duncan went to visit his family in Liberia and came back with the virus. He didn’t go to the hospital to seek help until 4 days later. CNN reported that nobody else should be at risk, but they are keeping an eye on the paramedics that helped the patient. Just Be safe everyone.
So I was reading this CNN report this morning called “The Great American Freakout.” You guys should check it out. It is basically talking about how scared Americans have been since the whole ISIS situation started; especially after the Subway systems in New York and in Paris were supposedly threatened last week. I think that this article is bringing awareness to the fact that we have been constantly told not to worry and not to be afraid, but the majority of Americans feel like ISIS is a threat to our country. Reports already stated this week that the group was unaffected by our airstrikes. They were prepared and it didn’t phase them.I think the author is implying that we shouldn’t be scared, but we have every reason to be.  I say all of this to say, keep up with the news when it comes to these things people. Pay attention to what’s happening around you and try to stay safe. You never know what may happen.
Michael Phelps was pulled over for a DUI yesterday morning in Baltimore. TMZ reported that the olympic swimmer was gambling at the Horseshoe Casino for hours before he left intoxicated. Sources told TMZ that his drink of choice that night was beer.
Reports are saying that Apple will be launching gold iPads this month….They are seriously on the roll! They want us to forget about the nude it working? ha ha ha Get that Bread Apple, I’m not mad at you.
Tracy Morgan says that he cannot believe that Wal*Mart is saying that he and his friends are partly to blame for their injuries. I reported yesterday tha teal*Mart has stated that Tracy and his friends should have been wearing seat belts on the limo van. USA Today reported that Tracy said “I can’t believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong.

Wednesday, July 30th News


Yesterday, I told you all that Stephen A. Smith spoke out about domestic violence last week on First Take. Okay so, Ray Rice has been suspended for 2 games due to the domestic violence incident that he was involved in with his fiancee and Stephen A gave his opinion. He was basically saying that it’s wrong for men to hit females, but women should not provoke a man either. Some people were very offended that Stephen A would even say that such violence is provoked. So, now he is suspended for a week. He has given a heartfelt apology. To see the clips, check out my BIAO News report from yesterday. I have both his apology and his original statement. Was Stephen A wrong for what he said? Should he be suspended? What do you think?


Nicki Minaj changed the release date of Anaconda to August 4th. She posted on Instagram “My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday August 4th. I promise you will understand why before this week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu”. I feel like she may have something up her sleeve, but like she said we’ll find out later this week…however, I am still curious to know why you think she’s pushed it back (LOL)! Comment and let me know!

Ray-J has a new song out called “Never Shoulda Did That” and he is letting all of his regrets out; like taking drugs, fighting in clubs, cheating in his girl and here’s the shocker…HAVING SEX ON CAMERA! (I definitely paraphrased lol) Come on Now, we know that means the Ray J & Kim K sex tape LOL. He actually said that he regrets that! I mean I guess, but that did put him on the map though and I wonder how many people would have listened to I hit it first if he never put out the sex tape lol. I don’t know if you should regret that Ray J. 

According to Timbaland, Missy Elliott has an album underway! Welcome Back Missy!

There was another attempt to call for a cease-fire in the middle east yesterday, but it failed. Gaza and Israel still have demands. Hopefully they can come to a mutual decision soon because people are dying left and right.

Tiny has spoken out about her song “What the F**k you Gon Do?” and she says that she made that song over a year ago. So basically, NO SHE IS NOT GETTING A DIVORCE. Tiny & TI are fine.
