It appears that when Hines Ward isn’t playing football or Dancing with Stars, he’s still pretty busy or should I say, “getting busy”. The retired NFL wide receiver is being called out in a paternity suit. A women named Melanie Smith alleges that Ward is the father of her 1 year old daughter.
Smith wanted Hines to man up and take care of his responsibilities but the MVP says that the child is not his. His denial prompted Smith to file a lawsuit in which Hines Ward would be mandated to take a paternity test. If the child is his, Ward will have to start paying child support including over a year in back pay. So far the judge hasn’t ruled and no one from Hines camp has commented on the issue.
If that child is his, that would make two for Hines. He has a son Jaden with his ex-wife Simone.
Ward was drafted in the third round in 1998 and played 14 years with the Steelers. He is a member of the 1000 club. Only 8 NFL players have 1,000 or more reception in their career.
Hines Ward has a net worth of $16 Million
When I asked Hines if the kid was his, he was like
Magician Wayne Houchin was in the Dominican Republic doing a talk show when his head literally caught on fire.
Houchin appeared on a show called, “Closer To the Stars”. Although it’s not entirely clear what happened or why, video released on the internet shows guest host Franlin Barazarte dousing Houchin’s head with a flammable cologne. The magicians head then bursts into flames and everyone tries to beat it out!
Houchin added the quick work of his team to extinguish the fire saved him, but not before he was covered in burns. His neck, head, face and right hand were injured in the attack. On his facebook page Houchin provided his fans with an update of his condition:
I will be extending my stay here in the Dominican Republic in order to undergo continuous treatment for my burns. The doctors are cautiously optimistic that I will fully recover with no scars.
The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country full of beautiful people. The outrage here and outpouring of support has been incredible.
The support, love and well wishes that has been sent my way through social media, blogs, forums, friends and fans has been both humbling and overwhelming.
Wayne says that the act was completely unexpected and he is treating it as criminal.
“[He] ignited it and intentionally dropped it on my head, setting me on fire. I was not aware he was going to do this. This was not a stunt or part of an act – this was a criminal attack.”
The video just leaves you curious for more, Here is Wayne Houchin in what I call, “Holy Smokes!”
Back in 2009 on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Caroline and her family helped out Christopher DiMartino, who has been suffering from Cancer since the age of 3. The Manzo’s during that time used their restaurant, the Brownstone to host a dinner that raised money for DiMartino’s cancer treatments. It worked.
Now that funds are running low again, and Chris is six years old, another fund raiser is desperately needed. The troops have been rallied and the fundraiser is set. The event is being hosted at the Euro Lounge Café and P-Diddy has even gotten involved by having his company Ciroc supply the vodka…the only thing that would complete the fundraiser would be the attendance of two of the biggest NJ Housewives, Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo.
NO DOUGH NO SHOW
It is being said that the two will not show up at the event without their appearance fee. When the two reality stars were contacted there was no response. WTF! A source told the daily news,
“They don’t do anything anymore unless they are getting paid, End of story.”
An appearance fee for the two could range anywhere from $3000, to $30,000; which for a Cancer fundraiser is out of the question. All the money collected needs to go towards young Chris’ chemotherapy treatment.
When a rep for Caroline Manzo was contacted and asked what gives? Her response was simple,
She has never been contacted by these people
A rep for Theresa didn’t return my calls; I didn’t have enough money for her comment fee. Like Will Smith says: Money and success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there.
If you are watching and enjoying the Voice then soak it all up while you can. Next season, two of the judges will be replaced. Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green our out!
Who will be replacing them? Are you ready for this?
How about Shakira and Usher. Not too bad. I can’t be mad at those choices. So far Adam Levine and Blake Shelton still keep their names on their rotating seats.
Aguilera was whining to Seacrest on his radio show about the lack of free time she has now that t “The Voice” has taken off far beyond anyone’s expectations. She said,
“[I thought], ‘It’ll keep me close to my son [Max, 4] in L.A. I don’t have to travel, Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!”
I guess now she will have plenty of time to tour, promote her new album and spend time with her son. Be careful what you wish for. Cee-Lo has a bunch of projects in the works including some shows for NBC.
It would be nice if they do keep Blake and Adam. It will be an interesting dynamic mixing the old with the new.
“The Voice” is a Mark Burnett production and he is showing both “Idol” and “X-factor” how things are done. How about lining up the judges early! How about getting top notch talent, and letting people get their lives in order and careers organized around the schedule. Now why couldn’t Idol land Usher? Anything would have been better than Minaj.
Now we need to know if Usher’s check will be bigger than Christina’s? I’m going to say that it better be . His fan base is ridiculous and right now he’s hotter then fish grease!
The first thing that grabs you about this ad, is that Brad Pitt’s brother certainly looks like Brad. At first you aren’t even listening to what he’s saying, you are just thinking,
Damn! He looks like his Brother
Then if you are a guy you are wondering if he was able to nail a ridiculous amount of chicks being Brad’s brother and looking like him……if you are a chick, you are probably wondering if you cut his hair and dressed him up right, would he look exactly like Brad…….Then slowly you start to pay attention to the commercial.
The spot basically takes a glimpse at Brad’s brother Doug as he lives a super regular life. So regular in fact, that he makes my life look almost as good as I tell everyone it is on facebook.
Besides the guy living in a decent house in a decent neighborhood, he’s does a great job at looking just as boring as someone who looks like Brad Pitt could possibly be. The guy does a great job.
BUT THE COMMERCIAL SUCKS!
I say the ad blows because you have no idea why you are watching this ad. What is this guy is selling. There is one point where he is watching and describing his mini-van and you think to yourself,
Aha! Must be a mini-van commercial. Brilliant!
If that was true, it would be brilliant. He’s washing and describing the mini-van, he’s gassing it up….but it’s not a minivan commercial. It’s a Virgin mobile ad.
It’s called “A Fair Go For All”. I had to google it, because the commercial really doesn’t tell me much.
Basically they want the consumer to know that you don’t have to be famous to get Rock Star Deals. The website they want you to visit is: http://fairgobro.com.au/#latest-offers where they show you the ad and some “Celebrity Deals at Celebrity Brother Prices” .
The ad might go viral, but I bet less than .5% of the people who watch it visit the site.
Here you tell me if this ad sucks or not.
When I heard that Mark Wahlberg was doing a comedy that involved a Teddy Bear, all I could think of are the Eddie Murphy career killers (Yeah he made a ton of money but never regained his adult core).
Then I found out that creator of The Family Guy was behind this. Then I found out it was R-rated. So I was intrigued. After I saw this trailer I was in. There is no way that you can watch this 3 minute preview without laughing. I just hope they didn’t use up all the funny parts on the trailer. Who knew a Teddy Bear could be that funny – It looks like Wahlberg holds is own against the Teddy Bear as well.
Seth Macfarlane wrote and directed the comedy and he’s the voice of Ted. The theme of the jokes follows the same comedic formula as Family Guy but Macfarlane is able to turn things up a notch. He has more time and more liberties and takes advantage of both. Mila Kunis plays Mark Wahlberg’s, love interest and it also stars my favorite underrated actor Giovanni Ribisi.
Ted Hits theaters July 13th. Here is the R-rated trailer for TED.
Trust me, you won’t be seeing this trailer on TV anytime soon.
