We have come to the end of the week and that means it’s time for the weekly roundup of some of the more “interesting” celebrity stories occurring this week.Dry those tears lady, George Clooney is finally off the market….for now. Mr. Clooney met his match in human rights attorney, Amal Alamuddin. He apparently cooked up quite a dinner for her (he really did cook) and proposed on bended knee. The two haven’t been dating for that long, but something about her stole the heart of the 52 year-old gray-haired heartthrob. She has brains, which we are sure is something new to him in the girls that he has dated. Could that be the reason? A few years ago, after losing his dog to a rattlesnake, he called up a shelter after seeing a dog on their website and asked the handler to bring it over. She obliged but said that the dog would have to love him or she was taking it back. Clooney put turkey bacon in his pocket and wiped it on his pants. Obviously, the dog loved him. Why tell this story? Seems as though this trick may also work with winning over the women in his life too.
Speaking of heartthrobs, we also need to touch on the British Ginger, Prince Harry. He and his girlfriend of two years, Cressida Bonas, split up a few days ago. You could almost hear the sighs of relief of girls around the world, hoping that they now have a chance to bag the Prince. The girls of Miami got the first shot. Prince Harry and Prince William have come to the U.S. for their good friend, Guy Pelly’s wedding in Memphis. First, was a stop in Miami to get things going at his bachelor party. They stopped at a couple of clubs where Prince Harry was seen in a private sky box with a beautiful brunette hanging on his arm. Somehow, we don’t think Prince Harry even remembers Cressida’s name….at least not while he is in the U.S. where he is treated like, well, royalty.
Floyd Mayweather isn’t a happy camper these days. His ex-fiancée, Shantel Christine Jackson, has gotten together with one of his good friends, Nelly. (And here we thought he was still with Ashanti). After the boxer got engaged in 2013, with a $5 million ring, things obviously it didn’t work out and Mayweather is letting everyone know why, and no, it’s not Nelly. Apparently, Ms. Jackson had an abortion which did not sit well with the boxer. He posted on his Instagram and Facebook page, which later was removed, “The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion, and I’m totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies.” He even posted a sonogram and paperwork to confirm the event. Many people were very upset with Mayweather for posting such private information, but, when things go bad, manicures and massages with the Biebs is always a good way to soften the blow.
Shaquille O’Neal is in some hot water. The cross-eyed ex NBA star that stands at 7 feet 1 inch, weighing in at 330 pounds and has a net worth about the same as his weight of $350 million, thought it would be a great idea to poke fun of a 23 year-old unemployed disabled man, Jahmel Binion. He found Mr. Binion’s picture on Instagram and made fun of his unfortunate facial features in this selfie:
He captioned the picture with “SMILE TODAY.” Oh Shaq, what are you doing? You do realize that you are part owner of the Sacramento Kings, right? And you also realize that your post making fun of Binion is just as shocking and reprehensible as Sterling’s now famous racist audio recording, right? Also, you don’t want to lose your endorsement with Icy Hot and Gold Bond. Who will the rest of us get to make fun of when your cross-eyed mug comes on the TV?
