Brotha’ Fred on HLN (Headline News) today during the Showbiz Tonight episode. He talked about the Octomom having a garage sale. The sale took place at her house at 2051 Madonna Avenue, La Habra, CA  90631. Nadya Suleman owes $450,000 on her mortgage. What would anyone do when they owe that much money? Have a garage sale of course. She says the proceeds from the auction-style yard sale will go to “Food, shelter and clothing.”  Among other items, available for purchase were autographed nursing bra, a fridge, a bikini Suleman wore on the cover of tabloid magazines, boxers Tattoo was wearing when he found out the amazing news that Nadya was having 8 babies and eight devil costumes worn by her children. Photographs with the octuplets were available for $100.

I for one am glad I missed that sale. But I did stop at a garage sale Saturday in Kannapolis. Bought a towel rck for 75¢.

Katy Perry may not be on Sesame Street but you will see her soon on the Simpons. It will be a christmas themed epsisode. She will play live action while the show’s regular characters will be puppets. The real surprise is that Katy Perry will perform as Moe’s girlfriend.

Tonight’s Topic: Who is the greatest teen idol of all time?
For me it was any of Charlie’s Angels…..
Morgan said hers was Joey Lawrence. So what does she think of him now? From lots of hair to no hair. There is like 30 years in between.

She also mentioned Scott Baio. Another former teen hearthrob who had to get a reality show as a career move.
Brotha’ Fred wanted to be Zack. Or is it Mark-Paul Gosselaar. What does that say about him?

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck, then

Thomas Selleck

Tom Selleck, Now!

Morgan Fogarty’s first teen crush? Tom Selleck.

Now the story most of you really want to know is about Lady Gaga. The pop star was the main event at Lollapalooza. Her own performance is not the news but when she got on stage with Semi Precious Weapons who also played at the event. Gaga was in a skimpy revealig outfit and decided to do some crowd surfing. Until the groping became too much for her.

What did she expect? Even Fred said he would do some groping. I think Morgan might take a turn herself if given the chance! If you watch in the video how the pop star acts, one has to wonder if this was one of the every si months she does drugs. hhhhhmmmm…..

Derek James & Bruce Snyder hosted tonight.

Should BP be allowed to drill in same area as the gulf oil spill? As Derek said, it is bad timing to bring this up now.  Let’s focus on finishing cleaning up the mess. If Lake Norman was the site of an oil spill, would residents want to start drilling again? Think not. 

httpv:// Evander Holyfield was in Statesville as the Holyfield foundation had an event. Its mission is to “rear young Warriors that are ready to go forth and face the global challenges.” Derek arm-wrestled Holyfield. Guess who won? Do you remember 1997? That is when Mike Tyson bit off Evander’s ear during a bout.
 Now most of you may be familar with the George Foreman grill. But did you know that Evander Holyfield has his own grill?  
The Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Grill is only three payments of $33. I will stick (actually nothing sticks to it) to my Fore grill.

No Fred. No Mofo. Derek James and Ashley Anderson.  Pretty good for replacements. For those that don’t know Ashley, she is a reporter/producer since January 2000. She was co-host on the Edge back when Mark Mathis was @!(*)!#!.

Tax-Free weekend. Schools supplies, computers and more can be purchases without paying Sales Tax. Find out what specifically is tax-free HERE.

httpv:// Nothing knew about celebrities running for public office. Now Wyclef Jean says he is running for President of Haiti. Just a few years ago Wyclef Jean recorded a song titled “If I was President” so maybe he is just fulfilling his destiny.

Do you know who Montana Fishburne is? No? But you probably know who Lawrence Fishbourne is and this is his 19 year old daughter. She is betting that you and many other people will know who she is when she makes a porn film. She has stated that having a sex tape worked for Kim Kardashian so should work for her career. Montana who also goes by “Chippy D” says the porn movie will be released this month. She does seem to have experience for the job already has it has been reported Montanna was arrested last November for prostitution. Her father is reportedly “hurt” by the news of her porn film.

Beyond the EDGE

The Health Care bill was passed by the U.S. Congress months ago but controversy continues. Five Senators are upset that the federal governemnt is using money to explain the healthcare bill in a video starring Sheriff Taylor himself Andy Griffith. Whether you support the Healthcare bill or not, take a look. Who else is to pay for explaining the legislation if not the governemnt that passed it? Stay tuned….

Morgan FogartyWould you watch an anchor-free newscast?
Tribune Broadcasting in Houston has decided to try out an anchor-free newscast starting full-time in October. A preview broadcast was done o July 30. The broadcast  is similar to surfing the Internet or if you remember the old newsreels seen at the movies decades ago. Voice-over narration of pre-taped stories with video and still images done in a rapid-fire format.  Not only are anchors missing but also not found are the correspondents except during live news.  There are already news broadcasts in England and parts of Europe that are like this. 
 It all comes down to money. Anchors make large salaries for often doing less work than the segment producers. Additionally, in the past Anchors edited their broadcasts but that had decreased in recent years.

The weapon of choice in an assault at a Maryland Giant Supermarket in Gaithersburg will surprise many. Semen. Michael Wayne Edwards Jr. put his semen in a small plastic spray bottle. While the Edge crew made a few laughs from this story, it should be noted that the semen is being tested for HIV.

Michael Edwards

During Edwards interview with police it was discovered that there have been other victims. He was released on $4,000 bail and charged with second degree assault so could face up to ten years in prison. Edwards had no prior criminal record.

Ellen Degeneres announced she is leaving American Idol. Actually she told Idol producers two month ago. On her website Ellen said:

“A couple months ago, I let FOX and the “American Idol” producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn’t leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on “Idol” and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.”

As one of the few people in America who has never watched American Idol, I really don’t care if Ellen goes. Of even if the whole show does. Sorry!

Chelsea Clinton's Porta PottyThere was a discusion about the upcoming Chelsea Clinto wedding in Rhnebeck, New York. What was more interesting is the $15,000 in port-potties. Not only hot water but a stereo system. They are nicer than my own bathroom! How about yours? 

For those that are wondering, yes I am back. Had surgery for a detached and torn Retina with a number of complications while I was in Florida. Went through similar problems in my right eye two years ago. While I lost some of my vision and have other residual issues, am very glad for what I do still have.

Tonight’s Topic: What was your favorite concert in Charlotte?
Paul McCartney is coming to Charlotte for a concert.

It’s the Attack of the Former Teen Queens. Former 1980’s Pop Star sensations Tiffinay and Deborah Gibson (formerly Debbie Gibson) will both star in a movie for the SYFY (formerly SciFi) channel. This blockbuster is titled “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” and from the preview the title is the biggest thing about this movie. Do not see any pythons or gatoroids in the preview.
