The summary:  Chris Hansen, the host of NBC’s “To Catch A Predator” has been caught cheating on his wife by using a hidden camera.

The reaction:  Well, isn’t this the ultimate irony?  It would only have been more ironic if the girl he was cheating on his wife with was about 12 years old.

Hansen of anybody should know that someone’s always around with a hidden camera ready to bust you.  I’m guessing we won’t be seeing too many “To Catch A Predator” specials in the near future!


Tracy Morgan follows up homophobic comments with remarks about “retarded kids”

The headline:  Tracy Morgan under fire again for cracking offensive jokes about the mentally disabled in NYC show

The link:

The summary:  Tracy Morgan is being criticized for jokes he made about “retarded kids” recently.  This follows Morgan’s highly criticized comments he made saying that he’d kill his son if he were gay.

The reaction:  I’m a Tracy Morgan fan but apparently this guy didn’t learn anything from his first run in.

Morgan claims he was just trying to be funny and meant no offense but he should know better that there are just some things you shouldn’t joke about.  Joking about “retarded kids” should be off limits as should saying you’re going to kill your son if he’s gay.  It’s not rocket science but I guess some people need a reminder.

The headline:  Katie Couric good as gone? CBS reportedly pulls offer to produce her syndicated talk show

The link:

The summary:  CBS has reportedly pulled its offer to produce a Katie Couric talk show after announcing that she’ll step down from the anchor desk of the CBS Evening News.

The reaction:  CBS claims that the negotiation went on way too long and now it looks as if Couric could bolt to ABC for her show.

This has to be considered a big loss for CBS as a syndicated daytime talk show could have been a ratings gold mine especially in light of Oprah Winfrey wrapping up her show.

The headline:  ‘Dancing’ dwindles to five: Who got cut?

The link:

The summary:  Kendra Wilkinson became the latest to be voted off of Dancing With The Stars leaving just five dancers remaining.

The reaction:  That leaves Hines Ward, Ralph Macchio, Kirstie Alley, Chelsea Kane and Romeo.  How Kirstie Alley has survived this long remains a mystery to me.

The headline:  Charlie Sheen & Brooke Mueller — Officially Divorced

The link:

The summary:  After a tumultuous negotiation, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller finalized their divorce agreement earlier today.

The reaction:  I can’t imagine why Mueller wouldn’t want to stick around and give Charlie another chance.  I mean, considering how normal a guy he is.

Not much to say about this one.  It is what we expected.  Let the countdown begin to when Charlie decides to marry one of the goddesses!

The royal wedding’s big winner: Pippa Middleton

The headline:  Pippa Middleton’s party role and what’s next for her

The link:

The summary:  Pippa Middleton has gone from Kate’s little sister about a week ago to perhaps England’s most eligible woman thanks to her high profile royal wedding role and stunning wedding looks.

The reaction:  I can’t be the only person that thought Pippa upstaged her sister this weekend.

Her bridesmaid dress will undoubtedly be copied by brides-to-be everywhere and she looked perhaps even better in her evening gown following the wedding.  Pippa was probably little known about a week ago but everybody knows who she is now.

I think England’s paparazzi may have a new #1 target.

Trump dodged Vietnam draft due to medical deferment, not high draft number

The headline:  Donald Trump dodged Vietnam War through medical deferment, not high draft number as he claimed

The link:

The summary:  Selective service records indicate that Donald Trump was able to avoid the draft for the Vietnam War due to a medical deferment and not due to a high draft number as he’s claimed he had.

The reaction:  So the guy who’s getting on Barack Obama about releasing his records doesn’t want to release any of his own?  Weird.

Trump is proving with the whole birther issue and now his Vietnam draft status that he’s not real big on facts.  He’s become very good at making facts and stories to twist the truth into whatever he wants it to be.  Maybe he’ll be a good politician after all!
