Katt Williams, Suge Knight & Too $hort to appear in Corruption Case involving Senator Yee

By Tanya Blake

Katt Williams, Too $hort, and Suge Knight are all apparently indirectly involved with the Senator Leland Yee corruption case, according to the latest reports. But what does Williams’ Bentley have anything to do with Yee allegedly selling rocket launchers — is the real question.

A little background.

Earlier in 2014, the FBI had Leland Yee arrested for bribery and various corruption charges. His arrest also happened to be alongside other notorious gang members like Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow.

Yee was best known for his efforts to strengthen open records, government transparency, and whistleblower protection laws. Ironically, Yee was also known for pushing gun control laws in California even though it’s alleged he was involved in a deal to buy assault rifles and rocket launchers. He also was trying to broker a deal between an international arms dealer and an Italian gangster from New Jersey.

When the FBI investigated these matters, they had an undercover FBI agent secretly wiretap and record various conversations. This is where Katt Williams’ Bentley comes into play, because a man named Barry Blackwell House was bragging about what he could do.

“House said he could send two ‘goons’ to do whatever UCE 4599 [the under cover agent] wanted,” the wiretap summary reads according to SFWeekly. “One of the ‘goons’ was from New York and would do anything. UCE 4599 asked if the ‘goons’ could damage a vehicle to send a message to someone. House responded ‘that’s a done deal, that’s too easy. I call that the sleeper.’ House told UCE 4599 he didn’t even have to meet the goons to minimize his culpability in the event.”

It turns out that House allegedly stole Katt Williams’ Bentley because Too $hort wanted revenged on the comedian for not paying the rapper for a 2012 performance. Apparently, Suge Knight was involved in the matter but federal prosecutor William Frentzen wrote that “Black backed down rapper Suge Knight and summoned the help of his organization to steal Williams’ Bentley.” While the circumstances are a bit vague, SFWeekly says it sounds like House “managed to convince Knight, who often hangs out with Too $hort, to stay out of it. Then House got his motorcycle club, the Made Men, to help steal the Bentley.”
Fate makes strange bedfellows, indeed.

Of course, all three of the suspects have had issues with the law enforcement agencies as a part of their history. And they refused to give any comments on the matter. The convo between Keith Jackson and House took place approximately a week before an incident involving Katt Williams.

As for Senator Yee, he is caught up in a scandal which is the biggest of its kind. The FBI busted a gang of Yee’s linked to the Ghee Kung Tong. The charges include activities associated with drug smuggling, gun supplying and beatings.

The trio of Katt Williams, Too $hort and Suge Knight will be coming to speak in their defense at the next court session of the trial. Let’s see what they have to say for themselves.

FBI Report Warns of Potential Homegrown ISIS Attacks Against US Law Enforcement

Published by EOTM News Editor on October 23rd, 2014 - in Breaking News, ISIS/ISIL, News and Politics, World News

Federal authorities have warned US law enforcement of potential terror attacks against them from homegrown ISIS members or supporters, according to a leaked internal bulletin. The leaked document is dated October 11, 2014, and was provided by a trusted federal agent who did so on the condition of anonymity working exclusively with Breibart.com.

The memo was issued by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a Joint Intelligence Bulletin and is titled, “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and Its Supporters Encouraging Attacks Against Law Enforcement and Government Personnel.” It is labeled, “UNCLASSIFIED/FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY” and asserts that it may be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and should not be released tot he public, the media, or anyone else not authorized by the DHS.

The document alerts US law enforcement personnel, including FBI Special Agents, to be aware of their surroundings and to monitor their families’ use of social media to “avoid revealing FBI or law enforcement affiliation.”

Another significant revelation in the leaked document is that the FBI is unaware of any current specific imminent threats from ISIS on U.S. soil, an assertion that seems to contradict some previous public reports that ISIS has crossed the U.S./Mexico border and is planning specific attacks. The report does indicate that ISIS advocated attacks on U.S. military personnel, law enforcement in general, FBI personnel, government officials, and media figures. — Read the full story via Breitbart.com.

Will the real ‘Renee Zellweger’ Please Stand Up!

May I have your attention please. May I have your attention please. Will the real Renee Zellweger please stand up. I repeat, will the real Renee Zellweger please stand up! Looks like we’re gonna have a problem here.

The many faces of Renee Zellweger -- Image credit: Getty/EOTM Media

Seriously folks, I was a big fan of Bridget Jones, actually I still am, just a bit speechless — and I am not the only one up in a frenzy, the internet is abuzz too!

The Zellweger Clone/maybe stepped out Monday night to celebrate the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards – which was where her fans caught wind of her transformation.

They ranted and raved by way of social media, below is just a tip of  the iceberg.

It’s not the worst plastic surgery I’ve seen, but she’s completely erased a major aspect of her movie star image/brand. Weird.

modcharissa

ModMudd

It doesn’t even look like she had bad plastic surgery, she doesn’t look like a bad version of herself, she looks like a completely different fucking human. WTF.

Nefertitties

She always had sort of an odd face. But it was her face. And she made millions because of it or in spite of it or whatever. Now she’s just Jennifer Grey.

Gary-X

Are we sure this isn’t just a Conan gag where they’ve joined Renee Zellweger and Sarah Jessica Parker’s face?

Gregoire

She’s been given the Sarah Jessica Parker treatment. That said, I’m exhausted with criticizing plastic surgery. I think she looks good. She just doesn’t look like Renee Zellweger.

Jenn321

I was thinking the exact same thing, she looks more like Sarah than herself now…

Grave Sauce

Why does she look so different? It’s not just the fact that she’s older— her face is completely changed, especially the eyes. She has on vastly less eye makeup certainly, but the entire shape of her eye is different. Plastic surgery? But the rest of her face certainly doesn’t look like there’s been surgery.

And I understand low maintenance, but why didn’t she get her eyebrows done or wear earrings? Her lips look chapped (I thought she didn’t have lipstick on), and she looks like she’s about to sweat off her makeup.

That’s not to say that she looks bad. She looks like an outdoorsy environmentalist who got dressed up one night— very natural, but still vastly different looking person than the Renee Zellweger we remember.

Tibbers

I don’t mean this to be a slap at her, just an observation. My best friend looks like this at her hairline. It’s from constant styling abuse. She also has similar lines on the side of her cheeks, just under the apple of the cheek area. Both women (my bestie and Renee here) had what could be described as chubby faces (not fat, just full) and both are no probably a size 2 thanks to over exercise. My bestie is a marathon runner who also work as an athletic trainer. She’s in the gym all day, and most of the night. She eats like a horse during marathons but the rest of the time she’s eating kale, salad, stuff that doesn’t leave you a lot of fat to burn off. And this is how she looks. And this is how her runner friends look (or at least a lot of them). I wonder how much of this has to do with Renee having an extreme workout regiment (gotta keep up with those 20 year old starlets *cue eye rolling*) and some of her bouncing about in weight. the skin can only take so much and if you’re barely eating, you’re going to look gaunt, no matter how full your cheeks once were.

  • Rachel • 11 minutes ago

    Wow, I would not have recognized her…I don’t know how I really feel about her changing her look. I mean she looks great and everything but she did have a different look about her that was unique and was sorta her trademark with her eyes.

    Jon •11 minutes ago

    Wow, she certainly & definitely looks different, good to see Renee again, welcome back, Girl, you look great.

    • MallratJon • 6 minutes ago

      You mean nice to meet you Renee.

  • vanessa • 12 minutes ago

    As a makeup artist I can tell you that part of the difference is her eyebrows….and the 13 year gap between the photos.

    guestvanessa • 11 minutes ago

    what about the shape of her eyes? That doesn’t change that drastically with age. Look for pictures of Renee as 2013, she looked like her normal self.

    guest • 14 minutes ago

    Her lemon sucking eyes (as Jim Carrey called them in Me, Myself & Irene) were so beautiful and a trademark. She obviously had some work done in her eyes, they look way too big now. Hopefully it’s reversible.

BPatrick

Finally! A solution to the problem of me getting her confused with Joey Lauren Adams.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

There were already rumors on the actress possibly going under the knife in the past, but last nights appearance was even more dramatic.

One plastic surgeon of the stars had this to say about the Bridget Jones stars new appearance:

“It looks like she had eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty, botox, lip fillers and cheek fillers. It appears she changed the shape of eye and eyelid. She removed excess skin, tightened skin around the area,” said Dr. Todd Schlifstein.

Another facial plastic surgeon, Dr. John Scheibelhoffer, had this to say:

“The big thing that strikes me is her eye shape has changed from almond to oval,” he speculated. ”Her eyes are much more open. The bottom third of her face doesn’t look all the different. She could have done fillers in her cheeks, her nose doesn’t look all that different.”

Drake – “How About Now”

By Michelle Walker

Follow us:@eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

New music from Drake seems to come at random times and that remains true today as a fresh track from the Toronto rapper has popped up titled ‘How About Now’. The song spans exactly four minutes in length and there’s no word on what project it’ll be placed on.

Drake

“Always felt my vision been bigger than the bigger picture. Crazy how you gotta wait until it’s dark out to see who really with you. Crazy how even when they miss you, shit will come back around and get ya” rhymes the OVO artist. While there’s no question Drake can sing, ‘How About Now’ is mainly his rapping talents at the forefront. A female voice recording starts off the track and then the instrumental kicks in.

Whether or not Drake intended for ‘How About Now’ to be released is unknown. Regardless, the track is dope. Look for Drake to release his next studio album ‘Views From The 6′ in the spring of 2015 and stream the new record below.

Is it a HIT or MISS? Share below in the comments.

Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta dead at 82

By Dorothy Frazier

De la Renta had been battling Cancer since 2006.

During his long career, Mr. de la Renta was among the few designers who knew the difference between the runway and fashion.

“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion,” Mr. de la Renta once said. “A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.”

Former American Idol Contestant, Joanne Borgella loses her Fight with Endometrial Cancer

Former “American Idol” contestant Joanne Borgella passed away today, October 18th. She was 32. The singer had been fighting a rare case of cancer called Endometrial.

Former American Idol contestant Joanne Borgella has died at the tender age of 32

According to the Mayo Clinic, Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus. The uterus is the hollow, pear-shaped pelvic organ in women where fetal development occurs.

The disease struck 72,160 women in 2011, according  statistics from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). It mostly affects women over the age of 50 and more white women than African Americans.

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy and the fourth most common among all cancers affecting American women, according to Dr. Andrea Mariani, associate professor of gynecology and surgery at the Mayo Clinic, who has studied the disease for 15 years.

The good news is that about 70 to 80 percent of all endometrial cancers – both Type 1 and Type 2 – are curable, according to Mariani.

Type 1 is hormone-dependent with a high cure rate. Type 2, which occurs in only 15 percent of endometrial cancer, is more aggressive and usually fatal.

Endometrial cancer is often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding, which prompts women to see their doctors. If endometrial cancer is discovered early, removing the uterus surgically often cures endometrial cancer.

According to Cancer.org the disease has about a 5 year survival rate.

Borgella’s family shared the news on her Facebook page writing, ‘With heavy hearts, we are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved Joanne,’ the post began. ‘At an early age, Joanne made a choice to serve and trust the Lord; and since her diagnosis over a year ago, Joanne made a choice to also be a fighter and share her journey with the world.

‘Her faith, courage and strength were unshaken throughout every obstacle she encountered. Although our family is suffering with this great loss, we find comfort in the closeness Joanne shared with the Lord. We know her spirit still shines and will continue to live on in heaven.’

After being diagnosed with cancer in October 2013, she went on to share her story with her fans in video and blog posts, regularly updating her followers on her progress.

Joanne was the first winner of “Mo’Nique’s Fat Chance” using the name “Miss F.A.T.” in 2005. In 2008 she was on Season 7 of “A.I.” and made it into the top 12 girls category.

The Borgella and Ramirez families have asked fans to ‘take the time to educate yourselves on Endometrial Cancer and support research efforts’.

Our condolences goes out to Joanne’s family & friends in their time of need.

VP Joe Biden’s Son, Hunter — Discharged From Navy Over Failed Cocaine Test, Report

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter | EOTM.Media on Facebook

Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, has been discharged from the Navy after testing positive for cocaine, a source familiar with the matter tells NPR’s Tom Bowman reports.

Navy spokesman Cmd. Ryan Perry tells Bowman:

“Ensign Hunter Biden was selected for commission through the Direct Commission Officer Program in 2012. In May, 2013 he was assigned to the Navy Public Supports Element East in Norfolk, Virginia. He was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February, 2014. Like other junior officers, the details of Ensign Biden’s discharge are not releasable under the Privacy Act.”

Citing “people familiar with the matter,” The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday:

“Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended.

“Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age — 43 when he was to be commissioned—he needed a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to people familiar with the matter. Military officials say such drug waivers aren’t uncommon.”

In a statement issued by Hunter Biden in response to the Wall Street Journal story, he says that serving in the Navy was the honor of his life.

“I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” he said. “I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
