Surprise, Surpise...Mr. Bounty Hunter Doesn't Like Black People

National Enquirer reports:

Dog Chapman has been captured spewing foul-mouthed racist slurs on a tape obtained exclusively by The NATIONAL ENQUIRER.

And now a civil rights leader is calling for Dog's TV show to be removed from the airwaves.

In a shocking world exclusive The ENQUIRER has obtained tapes of two revolting phone conversations in which Duane "Dog" Chapman unleashes a filthy bigoted attack, littered with the N-word and other disgusting racial insults.

The star of the A&E reality show Dog, The Bounty Hunter directed his racist hatred at his son Tucker's girlfriend Monique Shinnery, who is black.

"Dog Chapman should not have a show. That show should be taken off the air!"

That's the opinion of prominent civil rights leader Roy Innis, who has served as the chairman of the Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) since 1968. Innis was shocked and outraged when The ENQUIRER played Dog Chapman's racist telephone conversations for him.

"This man should not be held up as a role model for children," Innis told The ENQUIRER. "He has venom deep in his soul. This is a picture of his heart — a revelation of his true nature.

Innis believes that cable network A&E needs to take swift action in response to Dog's vicious outburst.

"He needs to answer for his behavior," says Innis.

"When someone gets the opportunity to use the airwaves, he becomes a role model, whether he likes it or not. Dog Chapman should not be in that position, posing as a good guy."

"His comments show that he certainly is not a good guy."

A&E releases a statement...
"A&E has just learned of the story released by the National Enquirer concerning Duane Dog Chapman. We take this matter very seriously. Pending an investigation, we have suspended production on the series. When the inquiry is concluded we will take appropriate action."

Sigh...don't you just LOVE "appropriate action"?? Anyways, below is a clip of the rant...


Of course, whenever you make racist comments about black folks, it is important that you see our self-appointed ambassador...Al Sharpton. And Mr. Dog Chapman plans on doing just that. TMZ reports:
TMZ has learned that Dog the Bounty Hunter has already contacted Rev. Al Sharpton, hoping to explain the racist telephone call Dog made to his son.

We're told The Rev, who is currently preaching in Daytona Beach, Fla., and hasn't heard the tape, is considering having a dialog with Chapman, but will not make his decision until he has a chance to listen.

And now, my two cents..."CRUCIFY HIM!"

Thank you very to finish my homework.

You Don't Say...


Amy Winehouse's father has revealed that his daughter still suffers from bulimia.

In a candid interview on This Morning programme, he says the singer started using hard drugs after wedding her bad boy husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.

Mr Winehouse made his revelations to hosts Fern Britton and Phillip Schofield, saying: 'She's not drinking as heavily now as she was then actually but there are other problems.'

'The other problem is the bulimia which is still apparent, although she's put on about a stone in weight but it's still affecting her health and there are problems with substance abuse as well' he confessed.

'She's eating, although the eating disorder hasn't been fully addressed. If you look at the photographs of her in August and see her now you will see a marked change for the better. But it's a change for the better, it isn't a cure.'

In the said interview, Daddy Winehouse also claims Amy didn't so drugs until she got married to that young fellow she be fightin'. There's nothing like a father's love. For more on this story, click here.

More Nigger Drama


Octobet 29, 2007 -- Nas' upcoming CD is under new fire from opponents who object to its controversial title. Brooklyn assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries demands that the New York Comptroller withdraw the $84 million state pension fund invested in Universal Music Group and its parent company Vivendi, if the conglomerate moves forward with releasing Nas’ next album with the title Nigger. “[They are] profiting from a racial slur that has been used to dehumanize people of color for centuries,” Jeffries said, according to The Brooklyn Paper.

I know Nas is laughing his ass off somewhere. Even if he ends up changing the album title, the entire world now knows he's putting out new music. Very effective marketing, but effective nonetheless.

Well DUH!!!!!!

NBA Player In Car Crash


L.A. Lakers star Lamar Odom was involved in a two car crash in Hawthorne, Calif., yesterday morning which sent one person to the hospital.

Police sources tell TMZ they are investigating Odom for allegedly running a red light in his Mercedes and T-boning a Geo Prism driven by a 37-year-old woman. Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extract the victim from the wreckage. The victim's family tells TMZ that she is in serious but stable condition with a head injury and injuries to her left leg.

Sources tell us neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the accident, adding Odom stayed with the victim and was very concerned about her well being.

Odom's rep was not immediately available for comment.

Jim Jones On The Cover Of Mass Appeal Magazine

Below is an excerpt from their interview with him...

You know what I’ve noticed about you cats? I’ve noticed that y’all are all down with your moms. I read the interview with your mom in Don Diva; she was dropping some gangsta-ass nuggets. (Understanding what the fuck these urban magazines are saying can be a bit of a struggle sometimes...but it's okay. -- RichBoi88)

She showed me my hustle, my grind. She was my mother, my father, my friend, my girlfriend—she is everything to me. You know, coming up, watching her lifestyle and how fast she was living and how much she still loved me and my sisters…she been through some hell fire shit. Shit is very cliché at this point, but it’s so real—what I’ve been through and seen through my mommas eyes, and the pain I’ve felt due to the ups and downs of the game. It’s like, Whew! That was that time of disco lights, camera, action and everything that goes along with getting money off cocaine. Cocaine was the drug of choice [back then]—just like how I’m hooked on this weed right now. And we could never talk bad about that time or about people using it ’cause that was the social drug. The flip side is when you get hooked on a strong drug like that everything slowly starts to deteriorate and you really start to see what life is about.

She worked in the club game, right?

The club was called Broadway International. Everybody came through there. I met Kurtis Blow there. My moms collected money at the door, she was at the bar, she was getting all types of money. They had the crazy unisex, Scarface looking bathroom and everybody in there was sniffing up. Niggas was snorting up and all that in that unisex bathroom—it looked like that Miami Vice-type shit. If you had a cell phone back then, you was doing some dumb shit.

Coolio Gets His Own Reality Show...On Oxygen?

I always thought Oxygen was for shows that targeted a female audience but what do I

Rapper Coolio is set to star in his own reality TV show for women's cable network Oxygen.

According to Reuters, the show, titled "Coolio & the Gang," is expected to air in the second-quarter of 2008. It will follow the rapper as he raises six teenagers by himself, all while maintaining his rap career and launching a clothing line.

"Coolio is a single dad raising kids, and it's got a lot of unconventional parenting aspects to it," Debby Beece, president of programming and marketing at Oxygen, told Reuters. "He wants his kids to do as he says, not as he does."

So far, six half-hour episodes are set to be shot.

44-year-old (Daagggg...since when? -- RichBoi88) Coolio rose to fame in the mid-90s with hit songs like "Fantastic Voyage" and "Gangsta's Paradise," but has been unable to reach the same mainstream success of his first two albums.

In related news, Lifetime just called...they want me to have my own reality show too. Yipee.

Somebody Fittin' To Get Dropped

J.Lo is apparently making demands like it's 2001...and pretty soon, she might be out of work...well, out of a record deal. Read...

Jennifer Lopez might have to start looking for a new label if she wants to make another original record. A source close to Epic Records and Epic’s parent company, Sony BMG, says that the label is fed up not only with J.Lo’s paltry album sales, but with the amount of money it’s costing to promote the diva.

“She costs too much money and doesn’t sell enough,” says the source, who is familiar with the issue. “Her last album cover alone cost $60,000 in hair and makeup, lighting, photographers, re-touching, etc. The video budget was in the neighborhood of $300,000.”

And that’s just what it costs to get the album out the door. Lopez performed on “Good Morning America” earlier this month, and all the costs were absorbed by the label. “Epic had to eat the cost for that entire performance. From her makeup — which typically costs in the neighborhood of $8,000 per day — to the backup singers, to the rigging, lighting and sound,” says a source close to the Lopez camp. “The woman requires everything short of flying monkeys to get on a stage.”

Lopez also appeared on “Dancing With the Stars,” and a source who is familiar with the standard costs of performing on the ABC hit estimates that it cost Lopez and her label at least $60,000.

Lopez has been promoting “Brave,” her first studio album to not debut in the top 10 on Billboard’s charts. “Brave” was released Oct. 9 and sold only 53,000 copies in its first week. The record label makes an average of $4 per CD, according to most estimates. Any way you do the math, the label is not coming close to breaking even on Lopez.

“Sony and Epic might keep her,” a source who is familiar with the situation says, “but she’ll be doing little more than greatest hits albums. That you can do without incurring a huge cost. The label is tired of throwing money away.”

Reps for Epic say Lopez has not angered them. “We love Jennifer at Epic,” a spokesperson said.

Oprah Apologizes For Mishappenings At Her Academy


A tearful Oprah Winfrey begged for forgiveness Sunday as she met the parents of students at her all-girls academy, which is reeling from lurid allegations of sexual abuse.

"I've disappointed you. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry," the talk show queen told families in an emergency meeting at the South African school in Henley-on-Klip, south of Johannesburg.

Oprah canceled appointments and flew to South Africa twice in the past few weeks after allegations that one of the matrons fondled a girl and that other pupils had been physically abused.

One pupil has said a matron grabbed her by the throat and threw her against a wall.

Girls have also said the "dorm parent" swore and screamed at them, assaulted them and sexually fondled at least one girl.

The alleged incidents came to light when one of the pupils ran away from the school because the reported abuse had become intolerable.

South African police and the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offenses Unit are now investigating.

Oprah, who has spoken openly about being abused as a child, gave the girls her personal telephone number, her e-mail address and her postal address so that they could contact her around the clock.

In addition to the matron suspected of being involved, Oprah also placed the principal and at least one other matron on leave two weeks ago. Only the principal was on paid leave, South African media reported.

“It’s like talking to your child about sex. It’s hard, but it’s important. It’s probably going to make people uncomfortable. I don’t expect a lot of people to sell a record called Nigger. Hopefully, people can open their minds up and lose some of their fear and deal with it. It’s just an album. It’s one piece of the many things I do, and this will be one of my favorite pieces."

I feel like I'm feeding into the bullshit by constantly posting about it. Oh well.
