I love reading and writing about quarky stories; however, I just found this to be DUMB! Apparently, “Ryanair could make passengers pay for toilets.” Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary suggested a separate toilet fee would lower ticket costs and make flying, somehow, easier for all. “One thing we have looked at in the past, and are looking at again, is the possibility of maybe putting a coin slot on the toilet door, so that people might have to actually spend a pound to `spend a penny’ in future,” O’Leary said. This quote is interesting to me because although I do not live in Europe, when I am traveling thought Europe, I always check Ryanair for the unbelievable low prices and 1 cent flights. Years ago a friend told me about the non-thrills airline and their 1 penny specials and I found it hard to believe until I actually seen a flight advertised.

Interesting enough, Thursday night on my way to the set to see the filming of the new Brotha video me and a good friend of mind had a very deep conversation regarding the state of Chris Brown’s career. During our discussion, we came to the conclusion that unfortunately the media is crucifying Chris Brown and more importantly, the only way he could recover was if Rihanna took him back. We agreed that it would be beneficial for both of them to work out some type of “financial” agreement. After all, Chris is young and although there is NEVER an excuse for a man to hit a woman, young teenagers make mistakes. Unfortunately, his mistake was just played out in the public eye for everyone to judge.
All within 24 hours of my conversation, it looks like Rihanna and Chris are indeed back together according to reports.
“Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together, PEOPLE has learned exclusively. The pair have reunited almost three weeks after Brown, 19, allegedly battered the “Umbrella” singer on Feb. 8, a source tells PEOPLE. “They’re together again. They care for each other,” says the source. The on-again couple are currently spending time together at one of Sean “Diddy” Combs’s homes, on Miami Beach’s Star Island. Adds the source: “While Chris is reflective and saddened about what happened, he is really happy to be with the woman he loves.” In its latest issue, PEOPLE reports that Brown called Rihanna on her 21st birthday one week ago. “He called to wish her happy birthday,” a source told the magazine. “They’ve reached out to each other. It’s been mutual.” Brown was booked by LAPD for making criminal threats but the case has not yet been presented to the District Attorney, who will ultimately determine which charges, if any, will be prosecuted. “
Today I came across a headline that grabbed my attention “Girls Generation Has Sausage Legs
.” I immediately thought the headline was too cute. As I opened the article I read the very few lines written and I bust out in laughter. The article is actually about a girls pop group in Seoul, Korea called “Girls Generation” and why were their jeans so tight at a recent press conference; however, I felt the need to address WHY do young girls and old women insist on wearing skinny leg jeans when they have big belly’s and pear shapes. The article is super short, but the responses are hilarious.

I am really starting to NOT like the lack of privacy that comes with having a Facebook.com account. As I was watching E! Live for the red carpet, I saw an advertisement for a new show. The commercial caught my attention, so I decided to log on to Eonline.com to find more information. As I clicked on E! I noticed my photo on the right side. Taking back, I thought WTF! Then I noticed it was Facebook related. Apparently, E! teamed up with Facebook to do what they describe as “Sound Off On The Oscars.” Ironically, next to my photo was a link to view Facebook’s “Privacy” terms and conditions. If you haven’t heard there have been many issues over the past week about these very same terms and conditions, which sparked a federal debut.

Mark Geragos did not do the best job defending Winona Ryder on shoplifting charges or Scott Peterson for was convicted of murder. Mark Geragos is probably better known for defending music legend Michael Jackson during his child molestation trial. Let’s hope he does a better job defending Chris! After all, if Michael and R. Kelly can get off… I am saying….
Leave it to TMZ to post the first photo of Rhianna’s injuries from the alleged beat down from Chris Brown. I was expecting to see something a bit more horrific than the photo provided, but you can tell she was clearly in some type of altercation. Check them out for yourself right here.
