JHUD's Family Murder Trial to be Televised and Punk is going back into Law!

Even though Jennifer Hudson has dropped over 80 pounds and trying to restart her life after her family was tragically killed. now they are saying Jens going to have to relive everything only this time it’s going public.
The tragic 2008 murder of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother, and nephew is finally going to trial, but could it be coming to a TV screen near you?
The Illinois Supreme Court has decided cameras and microphones can be allowed in the court room during the trial.
Many are wondering if this will open the door to televising the Hudson family murder trial.

Proponents argue that allowing cameras in the court room ensures transparency.
Illinois Chief Justice Kilbride said “The provisions of this new policy keep discretion in the chief circuit judge and the trial judge to assure that a fair and impartial trial is not compromised, yet affords a closer look at the workings of our court system to the public through the eyes of the electronic news media and news photographers.”

However, others argue that it is insensitive to families.
If the Hudson murder trial is televised it will be sure to garner huge headlines and media coverage. Jennifer Hudson may be called to testify against her former brother-in-law William Balfour, who has been charged with murder.
Jennifer Hudson’s fiance David Otunga has taken a break from wrestling to return to his career as a lawyer. It was reported earlier this month that Jennifer was not happy that David was furthering his wrestling career when he could be using his Havard law degree to the full advantage.

It seems Jennifer must have had an affect on David as he reportedly returned to the courts to represent a man who believed he was wrongfully terminated and denied unemployment benefits. A source told TMZ that David “smoked the witness during cross examination,” and the judge agreed with David’s argument and won the case so his client will now receive unemployment benefits.

It should also be noted that David did not initially ask for money before taking the case to court, as it was pro-bono. Before the case David was feeling very confident about the outcome and made a statement: “If the outcome of the case is any indication of how I’ll do in the Royal Rumble this weekend, then it looks like I’ll be the winner.”
Last week, Hudson released her book, “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down.”

HOLDING OUT FOR HOPE?…Will and Jada was in Philly for the 76’ers Game!
He doesn't get spend as much time in his native Philadelphia as he used to. And Will Smith seemed delighted to be able to make up for his absence as he watched his beloved 76ers in their NBA match-up with the Charlotte Bobcats.
The hunk even made it a family affair by bringing along his foxy wife Jada Pinkett-Smith and their son Jaden.
And no reason Will was smiling so widely - his team ended up thumping their rivals 89-72.
So the victory means he has bragging rights over rival rapper Nelly and all-time basketball great Michael Jordan, who both have stakes in the Bobcats
And lil Jaden was getting it in with his fans too.
No doubt the 43-year-old Men In Black favourite remembers the days when all the young ladies wanted to grab a snap with him back in his glory days as part of hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.
But the Wild Wild West star is still overwhelmingly popular in his home town, and took great delight in giving his fellow Philadelphians a two-fingered salute during a break in play.

Sorry Oprah, But You Are NOT Blue Ivy’s Godmother!
(via Huffington Post) Gayle King denied rumors that Oprah Winfrey is the the godmother of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy.

The CBS co-host and Winfrey’s best friend said the reports were “absolutely not true.” “She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much,” King said. “She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away.”
King was responding to Internet rumors that Beyonce and Jay-Z had chosen Oprah to be their daughter’s godmother after growing close to her over the years. Her statement also appears to contradict reports that Oprah already sent this fitting baby gift.

King added, “Let me just say, if true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born.” Oprah was attending the first graduation of the school she established for underprivileged girls in South Africa.
Duh! If TMZ didn’t report it, it obviously wasn’t true!

HOW IGNUNT!; Rapper Game Tweets Photos Of Himself With Bags Of Weed!
The Game is an attention whore and idiot! I hope this is fake shit for a music video shoot or something!! I guess he saw Rihanna getting all the attention for her weed smoking, he had to upstage her!

According to Radar, The 32-year-old rapper posted a photo of himself on Twitter on Monday with five large bags of marijuana boasting “Fresh kut. Fresh kush.” The Game — born Jayceon Terrell Taylor — has three children and despite a long police record, was engaged to Congressman G. K. Butterfield‘s daughter, Valeisha, before it was called off in 2006.

This isn’t the first time the Westside Story rapper has used Twitter to ignite controversy. Last fall The Game posted the emergency line for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department on his Twitter account, urging his followers to call for a chance to intern with him.
After an investigation due to the lines being jammed, the LASD decided not to seek criminal charges and The Game later issued an apology saying, “My sincerest apologies to the Sheriff’s Department, it was a joke gone wrong.”

Introducing The Halle Berry SHOE LINE!
Halle Berry is putting her laid back and casual yet sexy style to good use. She's giving other ladies the chance to look like her...well, at least their feet will.
Halle, who juggles being an actress and mom to 3-year-old Nahla, loves to keep it comfy. And now she's teamed up with popular German retailer Deichmann Shoes to create her own shoe designs. The Revlon spokeswoman did a fab private shoot in Germany this week to showcase her '5th Avenue by Halle Berry' collection:
In the commercial, we'll see Halle getting caught up in changing her outfits and shoes in her dressing room even though she's late to her film set.
The shoes are mostly and relatively low-heeled, wedged, and comfy but with a stylish edge moms of little ones could definitely appreciate. Halle said about her creations:

"Women have always loved shoes. It's like if your hair is not right and your shoes are not right, the woman is not right. If both of them are right, you're pretty much OK."

She continued:
"And shoes are a statement. They can be very sexy; they can say something about where you are in the day; they can say what your mood is; they give you a chance to accessorize. And I'm a girl that loves to change my shoes all the time. It's an expression of who you are really. I'm a girl if I find a shoe that I really like I like to get them in all colours. I'm big on that."

What's her personal faves? The 45-year-old Hollywood star revealed:
"I would say I'm a nude girl because this goes with everything. You can dress it up and dress it down. I can't think of any girl who wouldn't want her name on a brand of shoes. I think that's pretty cool."

Halle's spring/summer range of 40 limited edition shoes will boast peep toes with wedge heels, mid-heeled sandals with straps and mid and high-heeled sling sandals on wedge heels.
The shoes go on sale in the UK in early March with prices starting at £29.99.

Adele Close to Smashing Whitney Houston's Record
Adele's album '21' is dangerously close to smashing the record set by Whitney Houston's The Bodyguard in 1993.
It seems that every week, there is a new Adele-related accolade to tout.
And this week is no different, as her "21" album hits its 17th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart (95,000; down 9%). "21" has been No. 1 longer than any other album since "The Bodyguard" soundtrack wrapped a 20-week run at No. 1 on the chart dated May 29, 1993.
Could "21" hold on another week at the top? That all depends on how new albums from Tim McGraw ("Emotional Traffic"), Celtic Woman ("Believe") and Kellie Pickler ("100 Proof") -- among others -- sell this week. Also new to market: the "2012 Grammy Nominees" compilation.

Am I fuck face? Is that little girl there fuck face? Who are you saying “hey” to? I’m just trying to figure this out because from my viewpoint you haven’t been cool since your 15 minutes of nerd glory during the Dot-com boom, so I can’t imagine who you are trying to impress.
