John Cena Allegedly Failed To Pay Roofers

WWE Superstar John Cenaz has allegedly failed to pay a Florida roofing company $15,214.92 for work they did on his house.

Since the company has obtained a lien, they could go after his house if he doesn't pay what he owes!

What gives? That doesn't seem like too much money for a guy like Cena. Maybe the roofers didn't complete the job to Cena's satisfaction or maybe he's in financial trouble.

Pink Saves Puppies Life

It’s no secret that pop star Pink loves animals and she went on to show just how much when she dished out $5,000 to save an injured puppy in an shelter for abused animals.

According to the shelter’s site, the pup had been tossed into the Los Angeles river and needed emergency surgery, and after Pink came across the doggie’s story, she offered to pay the medical expenses to help a four-legged friend.

Sources tell TMZ the puppy Pink saved has since been adopted by a loving family.

“I hope everyone out there gets a big hug and feels super duper special at least three times this holiday,” the altruistic star tweeted Wednesday. “Even if it’s from a stranger. Hugs are healthy.”

Kevin Federline makes a classy statement about Britney’s engagement

Britney Spears and her hubby-to-be Jason Trawick have Kevin Federline’s whole-hearted blessing! Following a famously bitter 2007 split and subsequent custody battle over sons Sean, 6, and Jayden, 5, the pop star, 30, and her second husband, 33, have mended fences — and now that Spears is ready to ready beau of two years Trawick, Federline is thrilled.

“I’m really happy for her,” the former rapper told Australia’s TV Week magazine (as excerpted by the Daily Mail). “I think he’s a great guy,” he added of Trawick, 40, Spears’ former manager.

Down Under to film reality show Excess Baggage (Australia’s version of Celebrity Fit Club), he gave a great progress report on Spears, who battled dark times following the end of their marriage.

“She’s happy; she’s doing really well. I want to say she’s in a good place,” he explained. “I haven’t spoken to her much since I’ve been over here, both of us have been busy with her being on tour, but I do know from talking to the kids and talking to the kids’ teachers that they’re doing really good.”

Federline has also moved on with his own love life: His girlfriend Victoria Prince welcomed daughter Jordan Key in August — his fifth child overall. (Federline also has daughter Kori, 9, and son Kaleb, 7, with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson.)

“It’s really good once you’re able to move on with life,” he said. “I mean, Victoria’s the best person in the world. It took me going through the things that I went through to find a person like her,” he gushed of his love. “She’s more than I could ever have hoped for. Hopefully Britney feels the same way.”

And Federline added of Sean and Jayden’s stepdad Trawick: “He’s a really good guy, I’ve heard a lot about him. . . I’ve spoken to him quite a few times as of now. He seems like a really good guy. The kids speak highly of him [and] her family loves him.”

Kourtney Kardashian: I Can't "Tolerate" Lots of Food While Pregnant

No pickles or ice cream here!

Expecting her second child with beau Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian says she's had to lay off quite a few menu items since getting pregnant.

"I'm just eating whatever I can..whatever I can tolerate," Kardashian, 32, told Us Weekly at Thursday's opening of Kardashian Khaos at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Sticking with a largely "bland" diet, the E! reality star -- and mom to Mason, 2 -- tells Us that there's fewer foods she can stomach this time around.

Announcing her pregnancy exclusively to Us Weekly in November, Kardashian says she and Disick will eventually find out their baby's sex, and her mom, Kris Jenner, already has the perfect name in mind.

"It should be Kris, of course!" Jenner, 56, quipped to reporters at the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment Breakfast. "Half of me wants it to be two boys or two girls, [because] that's fun for a little playmate. And then, of course you want what they don't already have, but I am happy either way."

Says Kardashian: "Whatever's meant to be will be. [I want] just a healthy, happy baby."

Review of the book Smitten by Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter

This book was a very good book. I read it in two days. It was a bigger book then I had thought it was 400 pages. This book is about 4 friends and how they fall in love with their partners and there are 4 sections to the book and each section is from each friend from their perspective so you get to read the book from four peoples perspectives. I like that this book didn't have religious overtones in it and was a just a book to read to get away from the stress of the world and be in the world of the book.This book was about love and cooking. One of the girls was working at a bakery and found love from a guy who came in there alot to eat cupcakes to get to know her. People find people in the most common places. Just go to your favorite spot and you might fall in love someone. I fell in love with my husband from online, we both liked Britney Spears and at the time he owned a Britney Spears site and I found it and started talking to him and we went form there. At the time we both a huge Britney Spears collection and he actually got to meet her one time which I am so jealous of. I wish it could have been me to meet her with him instead of just him. I did give up my collection but I still like Britney to this day.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick wedding “imminent"

Sources close the Kardashian family tell Entertainment Tonight that the wedding of pregnant Kourtney Kardashian and longtime love Scott Disick is imminent.

Sources say the wedding will be the complete antithesis of sister Kim’s lavish affair and that it will be low key, just family. There are whispers that it will take place at the Kardashian family home. No word yet on whether the nuptials will be televised.

Kourtney and Scott announced Wednesday that they are expecting their second child together. The pair have a son, Mason, who is almost 2 years old.

Zander McCready in custody, sources say

Law enforcement in Arkansas and U.S. Marshals have Zander McCready in their custody and say that he is safe, according to our sources.

Officials say that his mother, Mindy McCready, was hiding in a closet with him when law enforcement entered the home in Heber Spings, Arkansas.

Family members say this is certainly a relief. But they also say they are torn for Mindy and Zander.

Right now, they don't know what will happen with Zander, but they are happy he is safe and in good health.

Mindy McCready's mother and stepfather, Gayle and Michael Inge, have been waiting for four days to hear the whereabouts of Zander.

Mindy McCready disappeared with him Tuesday after she took him from her dad's house in Cape Coral.

A Lee County has stated that upon his return to Florida, Zander will likely be placed back in the home of Gayle McCready, who is Zander's court-appointed guardian.

Mindy McCready And Her 5-Year-Old Son Are Missing

Scary stuff!

Country singer, Mindy McCready and her kinder-aged son have gone missing, according to police. The two were last seen Tuesday night.

Apparently, McCready has a dispute with the court system over custody -- which she does not have -- for 5-year-old son, Zander.

A missing persons report was filed with police, and a judge has ordered McCready to return Zander by 5 p.m. Thursday.

How do the police know Mindy has her son?
She posted about it facebook (duh)! She posted:

"My son is not missing" and that "police established that this afternoon via Skype. I have been fighting the Florida court system to protect my son, and bring him home. Please do not worry."

Yes, that's right. Don't worry about the kid being held hostage by the woman you saw on Celebrity Rehab for substance addition and who has overdosed since.

Sorry Mindy, but pretty worried.

Stay tuned for what we're hoping will be a happy ending!

Kourtney Kardashian Pregnant With Baby No. 2

Kourtney Kardashian is adding to the clan — she's pregnant with baby No. 2.

Kardashian and on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Disick announced the news early Wednesday, first reported by Us Weekly.

"Now I'm nine weeks along," she said. "You're supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident."

This will be the couple's second child together. Their son, Mason Disick, was born in December 2009.

"It wasn't like we weren't trying," said Disick, 28. "We kind of just said, 'If it's meant to be, it'll be.'"

Kardashian, 32, and Disick have been together (on and off) for five years. On Sunday's premiere of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, the E! reality star made it clear that they were not in a relationship — and the two even slept in separate bedrooms.

Shar Jackson's Assistant Commits Suicide At Her Home

Shar Jackson, best known for as the ex-wife of Kevin Federline, suffered a tragic loss this week.

We have learned EXCLUSIVELY on PerezHilton.com that this past Monday, Shar was visited at her home in Corona by her former assistant Justice. After "drinking and getting emotional," Justice stormed out of the house and when he didn't return after several hours, Shar became concerned and went looking for him.

It was then that Shar found Justice's body, hanging from a tree in her gated community. With her eldest son Donnie and her cousin Brooklyn at her side, Shar cut him down and "tried to resuscitate him." Unfortunately, he was too far gone. When the police and paramedics arrived, Justice was pronounced dead on the scene. We're told the ordeal has left Shar "heartbroken". She is currently in the care of her mother Clarice and has been "coping by taking Valium."

Review of the book the Future Door by Jason Lethcoe

This book was a very good book. I liked the idea of time travel and having a machine that you could go either to the future, present or past and change your life for the better. The book is about a young boy and his uncle whose time machine gets stolen and they have to after the crook and get back the time machine or the future will be ruined forever. It made for a very interesting reading book and I could not put it down. I read it in 3 hours in an afternoon. Its not really a religious book but that is ok with me. You can enjoy all kinds of books and such. I would recommend this book to everyone who wants a nice book to read that will get them into the book and away from reality for a while. It makes me think of the movie Back to the future and how if you alter one thing from the future, the reality goes messed up. I love that movie because I think it would be neat to have a flying machine that can change time and we can change our life, maybe go back to a time when we wanted to do things differently such as a death of the family and we wanted to say goodbye one last time when we couldn't. Wish is what I would do with a time machine. I would go back when my dog died and get to say goodbye one last time.

Review of the book The Encounter by Stephen Arterburn

This book was a wonderful read. I read it in 2 hours just sitting my couch relaxing. This story is about a man who goes to Alaska to find his long lost mother who give him up for adoption a long time ago and tries to find out why she did what she did and they ended up being friends. It is a really good book and I would recommend it to anyone.

And its not your typical religious book like the others but still an enjoyable book nonetheless. I think I would personally like to read more books by this author. I like learning about adoption because I think its a selfish act because if you cannot take care of a child and you are a mom you are giving the child a better life then what you have and that is unselfish of you. Not everyone expects to have a baby and when it turns out to be an accident you have to think whats best for your kid not you. That's why I like a girl named Caitlin and a guy named Tyler from Teen Mom who gave up their kid so it could have a better life and it turned out well. The adoption family is awesome and lets the young couple keep up with what is going on with their daughters life. Then later on Caitlin and Tyler decide to have a kid and this time they can take care of it because they had grown and learned more.

Fourteen Yr Old Creates Tumblr To Document Murderous Plot Against Justin Bieber's Ex

A developmentally disabled fourteen year old from Kentucky really wanted to murder Justin Bieber's ex — Caitlin Beadles.

And possibly even Selena Gomez! The suspect created a Tumblr under the username "KILLSGANDCB" and used it to plot her diabolical thoughts.

Though the Tumblr has been taken down, the legal documents state the suspect wrote she had cameras following Caitlin 24/7 and that Caitlin wouldn't know what was coming to her until she woke up with a knife on the other side of her bed!

The LAPD contacted the suspect's mother who claims she is not closely monitoring her internet activity.

Lindsay Lohan She'll Get Out of Jail In Minutes

Lindsay Lohan will almost certainly get out of jail in a matter of minutes ... this according to officials from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Two Sheriff's Dept. officials tell us ... if someone receives a misdemeanor sentence of 90 days or less, they are routinely processed in and then released. As one of the officials put it, "She'll be out without even having to change her clothes."

Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Lindsay to serve 30 days in the pokey, adding that the only way to shave time off the sentence is if it's required by law. A Sheriff's official told us earlier this week ... misdemeanor inmates only serve 20% of the actual sentence because of overcrowding. But the 2 officials we spoke with today say ... because of overcrowding they immediately release inmates sentenced to less than 90 days.

As for what the judge said -- that the sentence can only be reduced if required by law -- the officials say there's a federal court order on overcrowding that "trumps everything," and that order has been interpreted to immediately release people with short jail sentences.

Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore just confirmed with TMZ ... Lindsay will get in and out of jail pronto, adding the only reason there might be any sort of delay -- possibly overnight -- is if there are lots of other inmates who are being processed out at the same time.

Kim Kardashian Speaks Out On Her Failed Marriage: 'I Got Caught Up With the Hoopla'

One day after she filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of 72 days, and left the country on a business trip, Kim Kardashian is making sure she tells her side of the story.

“I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones,” Kardashian tweeted on Tuesday. “First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!”

She says that sharing the wedding with fans on E!’s two part wedding special in early October is just part of who she is and how the Kardashian family chooses to conduct their lives.

“We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments,” she writes. “These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!”

She then goes on to describe the “rollercoaster” she was on as the wedding approached and expresses regret for not ending the relationship sooner.

“I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to,” she reveals. “And didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.”

Kardashian then ends her statement by saying that reports that she made millions off of her wedding are “simpy not true” and announced that she will be donating the money from her wedding gifts to the Dream Foundation.

Review of the book Why Men Hate Going To Church by David Murrow

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I was really excited to get this book in the mail but then I was a bit disappointed with it. I agreed with some of the things the author talks about but I did not like other things. This book talked about things that made men not want to go to church and how we can fix it.

An interesting fact I learned in the book is that people who are actively engaged in their local church give three times as much as those who are disengaged. That is very true, and the author was spot on with that.

The author noted that churches had to become more mainstream and attract more men so they had advanced lighting sets, effects, video and sound. Young ones became accustomed to worshiping in dark rooms, under stage lighting, with a rock band in the lead. The only difference between between sacred and secular concerts was the obligatory talk about Jesus. This came to event a new kind of music called praise and worship. (Some of these sentences came from the author on page 72 and 73.) People don't realize that that's not how a church is supposed to be. At our kingdom Hall, our worship is just about Jehovah, no fancy icons, stuff like that. Its a simple hall with a stage and a table and a microphone, seats and a back room/bathroom and we get all the worship we need from Jehovah. You don't need to be a showy christian and bring attention to yourself, that is not the point of worship to GOD.

The author also makes a good point about how music today for churches and worship talks about GOD and Jesus in erotic terms such as 'Your love is extravagant, your friendship is intimate, I feel I'm moving to the myths of your grace, your fragrance is intoxicating in this secret place'. And the author is right on when he says " The bible never describes our love for GOD in such erotic terms. The men of scripture loved GOD, but they were never desperate for him or in love with him." People take advantage of their worship by trying to make money off of GOD but true worshipers to do not ask for money to sing about GOD, and true worshipers give out free literature to people and show them the real truth about GOD not what other people believe to be true or think is true based on misconception.

Another thing I agree with the author about is how inappropriate people dress in church these days. You can see cleavage or legs or even more. It can distract other worshipers from GOD and that is wrong. You cannot be stumbling other people, the message is about Jehovah GOD not about you or anyone else. And we have to be considerate of other peoples feelings and respect them and not be stumbling other people.

The last thought I agree with the author about is how the message that should be preached to people is about the Kingdom of GOD and that gets pushed aside. We need to really preach about what is truly important in the bible and not push aside that to tickle other people's ears. If people do not like the message, then they can choose not to take part in it but we will not change the truth to fit their perception of what is right.

My only complaint about the author is in the beginning he quoted a scripture but completely missed that point of the scripture and talked about it wrongly. Scriptures get misapplied all the time and that is wrong. People need to learn the truth about what the bible really teaches before they go to someone and try to teach them the truth.

Kim Kardashian to File for Divorce from Kris Humphries

Just 72 days after their $10 million wedding, Kim Kardashian plans to file for divorce from Kris Humphries on Monday, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The reality star also confirmed the news to Ryan Seacrest. "Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning," Seacrest tweeted. "I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few minutes."

TMZ reports that Kardashian, 31, will not seek an annulment and plans to cite "irreconcilable differences in her filing."

The date of separation is reportedly Oct. 31, 2011.

Kardashian's attorney is celeb lawyer Laura Wasser, who has represented such stars as Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Robyn Gibson.

Indeed, the latest Us Weekly reports of major friction between Kardashian and NBA star Humphries, 26.

The newylweds are "not getting along at all," one insider said. "Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it's causing major problems."

At issue? While Kardashian, 31, juggles her reality shows and multiple moneymaking ventures, the basketball hunk 26, is unemployed thanks to the NBA lockout -- and partying up a storm on his wife's dime.

The pair wed lavishly in Montecito, Calif. after just nine months of dating. "On some levels," says a friend, "she feels like she made a mistake."

Taylor Swift Reportedly Fighting False Explicit Photo On Tabloid Site

Taylor Swift is well-known not only for her infectious songwriting and all-ages fan group, but also her reputation for ladylike behavior and attire. Still, the 21-year-old superstar--like many big names before her--has found herself the subject of some rather sordid gossip over the weekend.

According to TMZ, Swift has sicced her lawyers on a tabloid site called Celeb Jihad, who has published what it claims to be a "leaked" topless photo of her.

Swift's legal team has reportedly stated that the site contains "false pornographic images and false 'news'" about the singer, and threatens a lawsuit for trademark infringement if the photo is not taken down.

The site in question has not removed the photo yet; instead choosing to put up a news item stating that Swift is furious with and "waging war" against them. TMZ noted that Swift's camp had no comment on the matter. (Our own request for comment was unreturned as well.)

If Swift is indeed furious over this incident, she's doing a fine job of hiding it. The singer appeared her usual stylish and unruffled self at a Nashville-area launch for her new perfume, Wonderstruck, on Friday; sporting a chic Ted Baker dress and black tights.

Swift's currently in the midst of her largely sold-out North American Speak Now tour (you can check dates here). On November 9, she'll be in the running for five trophies at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards.

KFC Apologizes For Not Letting John Travolta Reserve A Table

An employee at a KFC eatery in England says that when he received a call from a woman claiming to be a rep for John Travolta, asking to reserve a table for the Boy In the Plastic Bubble star, he told the woman "no," but not because he thought he was being pranked.

"To me, customers are customers, no matter who they are," the employee tells the Daily Mail. "It doesn't make a difference if someone is famous."

But a rep for KFC offered a more apologetic take on the matter: "In hindsight, of course, we would have reserved a table for him... It's not every day you get a Hollywood star eating in your restaurant."

Of course, we have no way of knowing if the call was legitimate, though the Daily Mail does say that Travolta was in the area that weekend to attend an event at Scientology HQ.

Review of the book Softly and Tenderly by Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

When I first started reading this book I thought to myself that is not a spiritual book but that changed my mind once I had read more. I wish though when people claim to be a Christian that they really knew what the bible says but they twist scriptures to fit what they believe and that is wrong. The 2 major points I had did not like in this book are that the characters in the book believe in fate and believe in the afterlife such as Heaven and Hell. Both of those are incorrect and the bible actually tells the truth about such things and if only people would learn what the bible really teaches then they would be happy. GOD does not control our lives and there is no such thing as fate. Life just happens and as the one scripture says that unforeseen occurrences befall as all. Meaning things just happen and its not because its GOD's will or anything else. This can be seen in the scripture Ecclesiastes 9:11 which reads " I returned to see under the sun that the swift do not have the race, nor the mighty ones the battle, nor do the wise also have the food, nor do the understanding ones also have the riches, nor do even those having knowledge have the favor; because time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all."

The second thing that bothered me about this book was the mention of afterlife which I have talked about alot on this blog before and you can look at previous blog posts to see more lengthy things on it. But once again when you die, you die. You are in a sleepless state and that is it. In the scripture Eccl. 9:5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.”Which means if the dead are conscious of nothing then they cannot look down upon us from Heaven or burn in Hell. You can read more on my other posts before.

I enjoyed the book and spent 2 day reading it but I wish people who claim to be Christian would actually not talk about stuff they know nothing about.

Ben And Jen Are Having A Boy

It's a little brother for Violet and Seraphina Affleck!

According to Life & Style, Jennifer Garner is expecting a baby boy!

Hubby Ben Affleck is over the moon with the idea of having a "little sports buddy." A friend of the couple says:

"He can't wait to take his son to baseball games and play catch with him."

Although, after having two girls, this is going to be a bit of a change for Jen. She's having a few reservations about how to raise a boy. The friend adds:

"She feels like she won’t know what to do. She's close to her two sisters, and her instincts were spot-on with the girls. But she never had a brother and doesn't know the drill."

But she is hoping that things will come to her "naturally" and she "already knows Ben will be an excellent dad!"

Review of the book Thank You God, for blessing me by Max Lucado

This book was simply adorable and cute and a great read and I know my niece and nephew will love it. They are 5 and 6. The book is about a green caterpiller who thanks GOD for all the blessings in his life. He is thankful for leaves to sleep on, yummy food to eat, eyes to see with and feet to walk on. He also thanks GOD for his friends. He also says to GOD help me be the best I can, to be kind and obey. Its how I say thank you GOD in a very special way. He then thanks GOD for the flowers, stars and trees, for friends, food and playtime.

I enjoyed this book because GOD is real and he blesses us in all kinds of ways and you can thank GOD either by a silent prayer or out loud.

GOD truly does care for us and wants whats best for us and GOD is like a friend who we can pray to at any time and will always listen whether its a small prayer just asking for help or to list some concerns we may have and we will helps us clear our minds and put us at ease. And there is never a busy signal at all. He always there for us, all we have to do is ask Jehovah for help and he is there. So close to 250. We need to always thank god for our life because we always have more then we deserve if we just see our life in a new light.

Book review of Close Enough To Hear God Breathe by Greg Paul

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

This book had some good points in it but also had 3 misconceptions that annoyed me right now. I liked how the author says that GOD listens to our prayers and he loves us and that he forgives us when we are truly sorry about what we did. All that is fine. What I do not like is when people use scriptures from the bible and misapply them to fit what they believe. The author used many scriptures to support his idea of trinity which is not true from the bible. Jesus is GOD's son and not GOD. That can be heard of in the account in the bible when Jesus gets baptized and GOD's voice comes comes down from heaven saying" This is my son, the beloved, whom I have approved." God could not have been talking to himself but to his son.

The second misconception in this book is about heaven and hell. That when you die that is where you will end up when reality that is not true. The scripture clearly states in Ecclesiastes 9:5 which reads " for the living are conscious that they will die, but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all." If you want to learn more about this please see my other blog posts as I have gone more into this topic before.

The third and final misconception is about how when you die not only do you go to heaven but that GOD took you as an angel from the earth. That is not true at all. GOD is a loving GOD who loves each and every one of us and would not be cruel like that. When we die, we simply die, we do not go to heaven or to earth. Please again see my other blog posts as well for more information.

In all the book was ok to read, I enjoyed the stories about the author's family but it had way too many misconceptions in it and I would not recommend this book to anyone at all, I will simply throw it away.

Kirstie Alley's dramatic weight loss

Kirstie Alley, who has struggled with yo-yo weight gain and loss for years, is showing off a body 10 sizes smaller after a lot of hard work. The 60-year-old actress strutted the runway during New York Fashion Week -- 100 pounds slimmer! – at her designer friend Zang Toi’s show.

Inspired by her physically demanding "Dancing With the Stars" stint, Alley has gone from a size 14 to a size 4. Before her appearance on the show, Alley said she visualized one day fitting in a size 4, and now she does.

Today, Alley's confidence is contagious, and she says she feels much more comfortable in her body. "I feel like I'm back in my element," Alley told Entertainment Tonight. "I honestly didn't even realize what I looked like."

Her hard-won metamorphosis is not tempting her to take things further. No plastic surgery for the former “Cheers" star. "I haven't had plastic surgery but here's the reason: People do plastic surgery to make you look younger," she said. "I don't think it makes you look younger. I think it can make you look weirder."
Once 228 pounds, Alley saw the scale go up and down a lot and got to the point when she stopped looking at it altogether. After a 15-month hiatus from weighing herself, she finally stepped on a scale. What she saw, she said, was shocking.

"I started screaming," she told People in 2009. "It said 228 lbs., which is my highest weight ever. I was so much more disgusting than I thought!"

At that point, Alley had already lost 75 pounds during her tenure as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig, then gained that weight (and more) back.

Bzz Agent campaign called Blender Bottle

I am interested in trying this campaign: Here is the the page says about it:

The patented BlenderBottle by Sundesa is a great way to mix protein and meal replacement drinks while on the go, but it's also handy for mixing pancake batter while camping, mixing salad dressings and marinades, or just using as a water bottle. The BlenderBottle is the best-selling portable mixer simply because it works. No batteries, no cord, no hassle. Mix It Smooth--Anytime, Anywhere.

I want to try this because my mom in law is always drinking beverages in the car and sometimes the cups/containers are too flimsy and break and make a mess so this would be a sturdy thing to have.

This call came from bzzagent.com

Reese Witherspoon Hit by Car While Jogging

Reese Witherspoon is nursing a quarter-sized gash on her forehead after being hit by a car in Santa Monica during a late Wednesday morning jog.

The Oscar-winning actress and avid runner, 35, was struck at an unmarked crosswalk at the intersection of 20th street and Georgina Avenue. The Walk the Line star "suffered minor injuries," according to the police report, and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

A witness at the accident site tells Us Weekly: "The driver seemed to have not seen her because of a large tree at the intersection...[Reese] was lucky, because it could have been much more serious."

The driver, an 84-year-old woman who lives in Santa Monica, was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

Witherspoon was released from the hospital by Wednesday afternoon, and is recovering at the Brentwood-area home in L.A. she shares with husband Jim Toth and her kids Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7.

Review of the book Stained Glass Hearts by Pasty Clairmont

This book was a good book to read. It was a book about this woman who is trying to be a good christian and look to the bright side on life when something bad happens.

I like that the author talks about having a good set of friends who will uplift you in times of need. I think when you are a spiritual person and have spiritual friends with the same beliefs that you do then you have someone who truly does care about you and becomes like your family and would be willing to do everything for you because they care about you. When I had to move out of my house a while back, my brothers and sisters from my congregation came over to help and really came through for us in a rough time we were going through. Our brothers and sisters in our congregation truly do love us and wants whats best for us and are our family and there is always someone to talk to when you need someone.


I also like the quote on prayer the author says on page 81 which says " Prayer gives us a resource for comfort, wisdom, strength, and unexplainable joy in the midst of the ravenous lions of life." Sometimes if we pray to GOD to help us and its his will and in the name of his son Jesus then he grants us our prayers and it all ends up working out in the long run. And GOD is always there to help us, no matter the time, day ,etc. There is never a busy signal, he is always there to help us.

Santino Marella involved in car accident

Santino Marella suffered a separated left shoulder following a car accident Thursday night in Toronto.

The official WWE website spoke to Marella this morning about the incident.

"I had just left home and was going to get my hair cut before I began packing for WWE's trip to Puerto Rico," explained Marella. "[My barber] wasn't around, so I just decided to go home."

He was then hit by another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle remained at the scene of the collision until police arrived, and no foul play is suspected.

"My car flipped sideways and the trunk hit a light pole, it completely crushed in," Marella said. "The airbags deployed, and all I could smell was gunpowder."

Marella's car came to rest near a light pole, and sustained significant damage.

"There was broken glass everywhere, and I tried to open the passenger door, but it was stuck," Marella said. “Luckily, there was still power in the car. I opened the sunroof and crawled out."

Review of the book One Call Away by Brenda Warner

This book is about her life as wife,mother and all the tragedies that went on her life and how she used her faith to get through it all. I enjoyed how strong she was to other people and how by letting it all go and depending on God for everything and how everything worked out, not exactly how it was planned but God took care of her and blessed her for the effort she made to him in her life.

I felt bad for this woman the entire time because she has so many tragedies happen such as her baby having seizures, her first husband had seizures and how once she remarried and had more kids, two of those kids were miscarriages and she lost them. And she also lost her mom and dad in a tornado which was so hard for her because she said if she had know that one time would be the last time she would see her parents she would hug them or tell them she loves them and would not hold off on those things. It shows that anything can happen in life and it can all change in a second and that you should always tell you family how you feel because they could be gone just like that.

I can relate a little bit to this author about the whole seizure situation. In May I ended up having a seizure out of the blue. Apparently one night, my husband saw me grunt, fall out of bed and then saw me having a seizure, foaming out of my mouth. He said he tried waking me up but I was unresponsive for 10 minutes. I did not wake up until the paramedics had come and put me on the gurney thing and took me to the hospital. I was scared and I am glad that I am ok and we still don't know what caused the seizure but it all will work out. I had never planned on that happening but sometimes things just do and you do your best to deal with it all.

All in all I would recommend this book to my friends and I enjoyed reading it. I actually ended up reading it in one day!

Beyoncé & Jay-Z Expecting a Baby



Leave it to Beyoncé to steal the spotlight at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards.

But it wasn't one of the pop diva's signature show-stopping performances that had people talking. Instead, it was Beyoncé's burgeoning baby bump, swathed in an orange gown.

Beyoncé, 29, posed for photos with her hands cradling her belly, teasing, "I have a surprise!"

"I'm happy to say it's true," her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Later, during the show, she performed "Love on Top," introducing the song by telling the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live crowd, "I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me."

After her song, she unbuttoned her sparkling jacket and rubbed her stomach. The crowd roared.

"They told friends in the last month," a source tells PEOPLE. "She's never been happier. Seriously it's all she's been waiting for. And Jay is like an excited kid. They're adorable."

This will be the first child for Beyoncé and her husband of three years, 41-year-old Jay-Z, who performed "Otis" at the VMAs with Kanye West.

Just in June, Knowles, who turns 30 on Sept. 4, told Piers Morgan, "I always said I would have a baby at 30."

Looks like the talented singer is true to her word!

Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith: 'We Are Still Together'

Will and Jada Smith have issued a statement confirming they are still together after a report surfaced on Tuesday suggesting their 13-year marriage had come to an end.

"Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact," Will and Jada said in a joint statement, issued to Access Hollywood.

On Tuesday morning, InTouch Weekly claimed the Hollywood superstar couple has decided to split after 13 years of marriage.

Will, 42, and Jada, 39, tied the knot in 1997. They have two children together - Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10. Will also has a son, Trey, 18, from a previous marriage.

Will's previous marriage to Sheree Zampino lasted from 1992 to 1995.

Will and Jada reportedly met when Jada auditioned for a role on Will's long-running series "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air."

Back in 2008, Will opened up about his marriage during a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and at the time, said "divorce is not an option."

"What I found is divorce just can't be an option," Will told Ellen at the time. "It's really that simple. And I think that's the problem with L.A. - there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options."

In 2005, Access spoke with Will while he was promoting "Hitch" to talk about the secret to making a marriage work.

"Jada and I spend a lot of time studying relationships and why things work and why things don't work," Will told Access Hollywood at the time.

"You've gotta love every aspect, you've gotta love it from every angle," Will later added.

Meanwhile, Jada said one of the secrets to the couple's success was finding time - and a place - for each other.

"You have to be willing to move around -- to move your romance around. Kitchen, closet, park, parked car," she laughed during the "Collateral" junket in 2004. "You'd be surprised!"

On Monday, Will was photographed in Miami and it appeared he was not wearing a wedding ring. However, it should be noted, Will often does not wear his ring

Review of the book Fresh Brewed Life by Nicole Johnson

This book was a really good read. I read it in 2 days and couldn't put it down. I really liked how encouraging this book was. The author made alot of great points that I could relate to and it seemed like a friend of mine had written this book.

I took some notes of the pages I liked so I could share my favorite stuff with the people who read my blog. I like the quote on page 3 which reads" Until we are honest, we can't have a relationship with Jesus and GOD, or anyone for that matter." GOD is a friend to us and to have a good relationship you need to be honest.

On page 56 I liked that the author said sometimes we may think to ourselves Who I am and what am I doing with my life and how that is completely normal. I have been having some thoughts like that and its comforting to know I am not the only one.

On page 111,112 the author brings up the topic of sex. I like her point when she says " It takes more than sex, even good sex, to make a marriage what it must be to survive. The goal of a good relationship is to communicate and connect deeply. We must continue to be held close. There must be a healthy pattern of relating to each other in nonsexual ways. There must be a dogged commitment to deal with any destructive issues that persist in the relationship in order to maintain love and trust."

On page 119 the author talks about a healthy relationship between husband and wife is then they often volunteer or do some kind of ministry together. When both husband and wife put GOD first in their lives, GOD will bless them and make them happy.

The main point of this book is about writing a journal to get our real feelings out to how we feel so we can better handle our relationships and such. And how GOD is always there for us and he knows that we suffer and he cares for us and will help us when the going gets tough. I will recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read mixed with a little part about religion in it.

Stage Collapses Before Sugarland Concert Killing Four, Injuring Dozens

A deadly storm with wind gusts of 60-70 mph slammed into the Indiana State Fair late Saturday night at approximately 9 p.m. local time causing the main concert stage to collapse. At this time authorities are reporting at least four dead and over 40 fans receiving treatment at local hospitals. It’s estimated that more than 150 fans were also treated at a makeshift triage unit at the fairgrounds itself.

It’s possible the death toll from the stage collapse at the fairgrounds in Indianapolis, which occurred as a crowd of about 12,000 waited for a performance by Sugarland, could go higher, local authorities are reporting.

Indianapolis Star music reporter David Lindquist was in the fifth row of the Grandstand when the disaster unfolded.

“The entire stage rigging collapsed,” Lindquist said. “This is bad. This is very bad.”

According to Lindquist, opening act Sara Bareilles finished her set by commenting what a beautiful night it was. Less than 30 minutes later the stage set was on the ground.

“The gust of wind came, there was no rain yet and the production fell from left to right,” Lindquist said. “And you could see, you could clearly see people were under the footprint of the rigging.”

Emergency crews and fans quickly converged on the collapsed stage and worked to free those who were trapped, he said.

The Indianapolis Star is reporting that the State Fair has been cancelled for Sunday and will resume on Monday with a prayer and memorial service.

Following the tragedy, Sugarland posted a message via Twitter: “We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you’ll join us. They need your strength.”

Kim said she put her foot down when it came to the reportedly 500+ guest list. "I'll look at the list and I'll be like, 'Why is this person on the list? Why is this person? I don't know this person. This is your friend.' This is my wedding. I gotta approve the list!"

One of those guests is "Extra" host Mario Lopez. Kim talked about the formal attire for the big day, saying, "I will just tell him [Mario] to wear black or white. There's a dress code."

The rumored $10 million wedding is set for August 20 in Montecito, CA, with the whole ceremony decked out in neutral, black and silver. There's also a 10-tier cake, modeled after the royal confection from Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.

Review of the book Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory

This book was simply a great read, I read it in one afternoon. I could not put it down. It's about a blind man who is in the south twin towers on 9/11 when the planes have hit the buildings. Its how he gets out with the help of his seeing eye dog. They both make it out safely.

I enjoyed a quote from the book that I want to share in this blog post. "A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself" by Josh Billings.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good read. And its not really a christian book like the others on booksneeze but a good read nonetheless. I enjoy reading other books about 9/11 and how animals help us. I actually ended up giving this book to a friend and she kept it and didn't give it back to me. I actually gave it to our realtor after she helped us find a house. I like reading a book about cats and dogs because I love animals, I love watching tv shows and moves on them. If it were up to me I would keep every dog and cat because I would take such good care of them. I hate seeing animals suffer and when people told that, I want them to suffer as much as they did to the animals. I care more about animals then people which is so true. I am an animal person.

Police: Singer Amy Winehouse Dies at Age 27

Amy Winehouse, the beehived soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, was found dead Saturday in her London home, police said. She was 27.

Winehouse shot to fame in 2006 with the album "Back to Black," whose blend of jazz, soul, rock and classic pop was a global hit. It won five Grammys and made Winehouse - with her black beehive hairdoand old-fashioned sailor tattoos - one of music's most recognizable stars. But her personal life, with its drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and destructive relationships, soon took over her career.

Police confirmed that a 27-year-old female was pronounced dead at the home in Camden Square northern London; the cause of death was not immediately known. London Ambulance Services said Winehouse had died before the two ambulance crews it sent arrived at the scene.

Singer and actress Kelly Osbourne, who helped Winehouse check into a drug addiction treatment facility in 2008, was one of many who grieved for the singer on Twitter.

"I cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy and will never forget the real you!" she tweeted.

The singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, had arrived in New York this weekend to prepare for his U.S. performing debut Monday night at the Blue Note jazz club, but upon receiving news of his daughter's death was heading back home to London to be with his family, his publicist Don Lucoff said.

An ambulance could be seen parked beneath the trees outside her London home, and the whole street was cordoned off by police tape. Officers kept onlookers away from the scene.

New details on the demise of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's marriage continue to surface, with the latest report saying the singer/actress wanted to leave two years ago when she found out Anthony had an affair with a flight attendant, reports Us Weekly.

A source told the mag that Anthony, 42, hooked up with a flight attendant he met aboard a private plane in 2009, saying, "Marc and Jennifer almost split up over it."

went to marriage counseling and she decided to give it another shot. He was someone she truly loved."

Although the "American Idol" judge, 41, stayed with the marriage, Anthony's controlling behavior and ultimate jealousy over Lopez's successful career is what drove the last nail into their marriage's coffin.

And what about the couple's 3-year-old twins, Emme and Max? Lopez told "Extra" earlier this year, "At the end of the day, the babies are the light of my life. The most important thing to me is my family, and they come first."

Review of the book Why God Won't Go Away by Allister McGrath

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

This book was kind of boring and was kind of hard to follow with all the scientific things in it. They quoted a lot of things about science and its finding so that made it very hard to understand and confusing. This book was all about this new form of atheism around and what those atheists believe. I personally am a Christian and believe highly in the bible and GOD and wish everyone else did the same as well. I only liked two points in this book that I will be talking about and that will be my review. On page 13 of the book it says " Faith is blind trust in the absence of evidence, even in the teeth of evidence. It's a process of non-thinking or persistently false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence. " What I have learned as Christian is to your own research, do not always believe what people tell you, do your own research and see if what you are being taught is in fact correct. The biggest misconception I had was that when we die, we either go to heaven or hell but that is simply not true. I will use the same scripture I have used in my other posts that says that when we die, we are simply sleeping, not conscious of anything. In ecclesiastics it says in chapter 9, verse 5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” And I also learned that GOD is not a mean God, he is a loving, kind GOD. In the scripture Psalms 68 verse 19 it says "Blessed be Jehovah, who daily carries the load for us,The [true] God of our salvation." This shows that Jehovah will help us carry our daily load if it gets too hard for us to bear. Which shows GOD truly does care about us. And the second thing I enjoyed in this book is how people only think of things that are going wrong when something bad is happening but this quote sums it up perfectly " For every one of these grand tragedies there are ten thousand acts of personal kindness and social good that go unreported...Religion, like all social institutions of such historical depth and cultural impact, cannot be reduced to an unambiguous good or evil". Overall this book was hard to read, boring and I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Review of the book Surviving Your Serengenti by Stefan Swanepoel

This book was a really good read. This couple goes to Africa on a trip and learns a lot about themselves and the animals. They learn a lot about lions, wildebeest, crocodile, cheetah, giraffe, mongoose and elephant. And we learn from the author about how these animals behave in the wild and what there strengthens and weaknesses are and how we can learn from them and find out what animal we are.

I found out by taking the quiz at the end of the book that I am most like a giraffe.As a giraffe the book says I seek to make others feel like they're one of the most important people with whom they can spend time, and always put the needs of others first. And that I live according to a personal code that is higher than normal standards of conduct, and incoporate dignity, honor and respect in extending grace to others-even when things have not gone their way.

I really enjoyed this book and would reccomend it to anyone. I will say this, this was not really a Christian book at all so if a person wants just a religious or Christian type of book then you may not want to pick this up. So close to 250. I truly do put people first because I don't feel myself worthy of me time, I always want to be there for others. Sort of like my mother in law, she is always putting others first. She is awesome.

Kirstie Alley claims she lost “90 pounds” to get down to her 22-inch waist

Kirstie Alley continued her fashion offensive today as she stepped out in a stylish ensemble. The Dancing With The Stars runner-up slipped into a belted shirt-dress, which she wore over her trademark leggings.

Kirstie recently has lost 90lbs since she first decided to join the dancing competition.
And Alley certainly appeared confident in her skin today as she left the Tribeca Hotel in New York.

The actress looked youthful, with her hair swept back into a ponytail, completing her look with a dramatic belt, a beaded purse and Christian Louboutin heels.

Yesterday she appeared on the U.S. daytime talkshow The View.

Speaking on the show, she said: ‘I lost 60 before [the show] and 30 during,’ she said.

Panelist Whoopi Goldberg revealed she has been a fan through both the 60-year-old’s highs and lows.

‘I always thought you looked good no matter what,’ she said.

As well as a rigorous workout regime, Alley also credits her transformation to her own weight loss programme, Organic Liason.

‘I don’t think I could have made it through Dancing with the Stars without it,’ she said.Kirstie now has a new goal in her sights - to squeeze into a new dress in time for a holiday in Italy later this year.

She claims it has a 22 inch waist, although given Megan Fox would be one of the few women able to wear it, it seems she may be exaggerating.

‘I tried it on, and I can almost zip it up,’ she told America’s Life & Style magazine last week.

She is confident she’ll be able to get in it by the time she jets off in a few weeks.
‘I’ll be my target size by then,’ she said.

Alley, who was partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, has kept up dancing since the competition’s finale in May.

‘I’ve been dancing almost every day since the show ended,’ she confides. ‘I like all the Latin dancing. It’s the best exercise and the best cardio.’

Review of the book A Placed Called Blessing by John Trent

This book was very good to read. I read it all in two days. I could not put it down. This book is about 3 foster kids who are all brothers who are trying to find a home to live. It ends up that the two older brothers found a home but the younger one did not and ended up being situated from his 2 older brothers. So he grows up trying to find them and himself. He ends up finding this great home and lives with his work mate and the work mates mom. He ends up loving that family and becoming part of the family. The sad part is that his work mate ends up dying of cancer at the end of the book and the brother has to deal with that in his life. I am not saying everything in the book because I don't want to give away all the book in case someone wants to read it themselves. I also want to point out that this book while a good read is not really a Christian books like others on booksneeze.com but its a great book nonetheless. Cancer and death sucks when it has to do with a close family. I wish death was not a part of this world but it is a part and it sucks. Death robs us of so much and so does grief as my friend learned after she lost so many people in her life and she struggles with it. .

Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Was Drinking The Night Of His Fatal Car Accident





So sad and SO avoidable!

Earlier today, we were devastated to report that Jackass star Ryan Dunn passed away early this morning in a car accident in Pennsylvania, alongside an as-of-now unidentified person.

Now, a Twitter picture of Dunn drinking the night of his fatal car accident has been revealed, along with photos of the results of the massive car wreck (above).

Apparently, Ryan was driving his porsche along with a passenger, but then he "lost control" and "slammed into a tree" and his porsche "burst into flames."

The only way they were able to identify Ryan was by his tattoos and facial hair.

'Jackass' star Ryan Dunn dies in fiery Pa. crash

Police in southeastern Pennsylvania say "Jackass" cast member Ryan Dunn has died of injuries sustained in a fiery car crash, and speed may have been a factor.

West Goshen Township police say Dunn and a passenger died after his 2007 Porsche left the roadway and burst into flames. The crash occurred near the Philadelphia suburb of West Chester.

The 34-year-old Dunn appeared on MTV shows "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" and the three "Jackass" big-screen adaptations. He also was the star of his own MTV show, "Homewrecker," and hosted "Proving Ground" on the G4 cable network.

In a statement, MTV calls Dunn "a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade."

The passenger who died has not yet been identified.

Review of the book The Quotable Rogue, The ideals of Sarah Palin in her own words by Matt Lewis

**I want to start off by saying that I do not get involved in politics or voting.I do like Sarah Palin but I do not support her in anyway. I just liked her show on TV because it was more about nature and animals then about politics**

This book was just a book of quotes that Sarah Palin has said in her lifetime and they complied all the quotes together. I will simply put the quotes that I liked that Sarah said on here and that will be my review.

The first quote I liked from her was on Health Care and how Obama is handling it. " When he is up there and he is telling us basically,"I know best, my people here in the White House know best, and we are going to tell you that, yes, you do want this essentially nationalized health care system," and we are saying,"No, we don't." And the messages are not being received by Barack Obama. So I think instead of lecturing, he needs to stop, and listen on health care issues. On national security, this perceived lackadaisical approach that he has dealing with the terrorists. We're saying that concerns us, and we're going to speak up about it, and please don't ... try to make us feel like we need to just sit down, shut up, and accpet what you're doing to us.-Fox News interview with Chris Wallace, February 7,2010

"Not that a Zamboni blade isn't great-I love Zambonis.But should that be a higher priority then what the troopers need in their car?"-Commenting on the Alaska state senate's draft budget with 15,000 going to the Zamboni machine, Anchorage Daily News, April 2,2008.

Do you support the Alaskan Supreme Court's ruling that spousal benefits for state employees should be given to same-sex couples? No I believe spousal benefits are reserved for married citizens as defined in our constitution. -Eagle Forum 2006, general gubernatorial candidate questionare,July 31st 2006.

Will you support the right of parents to opt out their children from curricula, books, classes or survey's which parents consider privacy-invading or offensive to their religion or conscience? Yes. Parents should have the ultimate control over what their children are taught-Eagle forum 2006 Gubernatorial candidate questionnaire, July 31st, 2006.

Faith is very important in my life. I don't believe in I wear in on my sleeve, and I would never try to shove it down anybody else' throat and try to convert anybody. But just a very simple faith that is important to me, is really my foundation.-Hannity and Colmes, September 17th, 2008.

Review of the book The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet, Lori Wagner

This book was really good and I enjoyed reading it. I couldn't put it down and read all 400 pages in about a week. This book dealt with the signs of the last days in the bible and how the world was going to end. The didn't get every detail right but it was entertaining to read and that's the best a book can do. The bible clearly states what will happen in the last days such as nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, there will be food shortages, there will be great earthquakes, there will be pestilences, etc. And what makes it so powerful today is that all these are happening more and more rapidly and more and more powerful. We are seeing horrible earthquakes all over the earth of great magnitude more then ever before. That's why its important to be close to GOD and have him on your side when the end of the world comes. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading and being entertained. I learned that Seprah means angel which I learned from my mother in law who knows the bible in and out , she is so awesome. I love learning about angels and what they do for us for example encourage us to be better and come from God who is always watching us and so is the angels. I like reading stories about angels because miracles usually happen and its amazing reading about that and what angels do.

Review of Daddy Dates by Greg Wright

This book was a really good read. It was an easy book to read and I read it in one sitting on the plane. I had a misconceptio about the book but that changed after I read it. I thought this book was about a divorced dad who now dates to make his kis happy but in reality this book is about a married dad who takes his daughters on dates to get to know them and make them feel special. It gives them a way to bond and talk to their father and he can learn more about his daughters that he might not have been able to know. He learns what music they listen to,favorite foods,etc. And the kids feel special when the dad takes out time in his busy live to get to know them as indivuals. The best quote of all is on page 198 where the author says"I'm not a smart man...but I know what love is..." Without love, life is pointless. I will say this, this book does not have Christian undertones in it so it may not be a book that is about being a Christian or Christianty which people enjoy reading on booksneeze.com but it still is a good book to read. My dad is the best dad in the whole world, he is always there for me and without him I would not be able to live. I hope he lives forever and does not die because I could imagine my life without him.

Kendra Wilkinson Gets Serious: 'It's Do or Die Time'

Kendra Wilkinson is showing her tough side.

The reality starlet-turned-Dancing with the Stars contestant may have come comes to elimination the last couple of weeks, but she's serious about winning the disco ball trophy.

"It's time to get stuff done," the mommy of son Hank Baskett IV, tells PEOPLE. "No B.S. Get it done. Come here and just be proactive and not just sit around."

Now that the first few weeks of the show have weeded out contestants, Wilkinson, 25, understands that she currently has serious competition on her hands.

"It's real do or die time now," she says. "It's any of us now. It's all about who can survive physically and mentally."

Luckily, Wilkinson isn't too nervous about her upcoming Monday night performance.

"I feel more comfortable with the tango because it's not so soft and feminine," she says while rehearsing with partner Louis van Amstel. "This is a little bit harder and a little bit more fun. It's definitely more of my type of ballroom dance, rather than the Viennese Waltz."

I got this from bzzagent to try and review for free. I really liked this makeup. It doesn't feel like you are wearing any make up at all. It came on clear and not like the color on the package and felt smooth on my skin. It is very natural and didn't look like I had any make up on. I would recommend this people.

Mariah Gives Birth To A Boy And A Girl

Mariah Carey's rep Cindi Berger confirmed that dem babies were born on Saturday at 12:07 p.m. EDT at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles.

Mariah's little princess was born first, weighting 5 pounds, 3 ounces, and was 18 inches long. Her tiny prince will clearly be the baby of the family as he was born soon after, at 5 pounds, 6 ounces, and was 19 inches.

Berger says that Mariah and Nick have not named the children, but knowing MiMi, we're sure they're going to have the most adorable names ever.

Berger gave us some details about how it all went down:

She says that Nick drove Mariah in their Rolls Royce Phantom, assuming it was another false alarm. Turns out, it was the real thing, which made Nick so nervous, he went to the wrong department at the hospital and had to be guided to the maternity ward by a nurse.

Berger says, "It was like right out of an I Love Lucy skit."

And to make things soooo much cuter, Berger says that Nick and Mariah were listening to We Belong Together after the children were born.

Did we mention that the twins were born the same day as Mariah and Nick's anniverary??

Mike Tyson's Face Tattoo Artist Sues 'Hangover'

If you've seen the previews for "Hangover 2" -- you already know Ed Helms wakes up with a Mike Tyson face tattoo ... but now, the guy who did Tyson's ink is PISSED at producers, claiming they ripped off his work without permission.

The guy who applied Tyson's face tattoo back in 2003 is S. Victor Whitmill -- who claims he not only created the design, but copyrighted it as well.

In fact, Whitmill says he's never allowed ANYONE to use the image since he put it on Tyson.

Now, Whitmill has filed a lawsuit in federal court in St. Louis, claiming Warner Bros. -- the studio behind the movie -- violated his copyright ... and he wants to block the studio from showing the tattoo in the film.

Whitmill is also demanding an unspecified amount of cash.

Review of The Book That Made Your World by Vishal Mangalwadi

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

This book was really good and worth taking the time to read. It may be long, about 400 pages but I enjoyed it very much. This book was about the history of religion and how it came to the force it is today. It talked about Hinduism, Buddhism and the bible. I found the history of the bible the most interesting and skipped over the rest of the religions. To me personally the bible has a big impact on my life and how I live my life so I liked alot of what the author had to say about the bible and how it impacted his life.

The author mentions on page 22 that one of the problems people have with the bible is that they feel it is irrelevant to today. That is far from the case. If only people would actually live how the bible tells us today then they would have a happier life. GOD gives us commandments to follow because they protect us from harm and it helps us be safe. I also like what the author says on page 30 how GOD is our shield and protects us when we put him first in our lives. The bible says "Put on all the armour which God provides, so that you may be able to stand firm against the devices of the devil.”—EPHESIANS 6:11"."We stand firm against Satan by being motivated to serve Jehovah and to lead clean lives that will prevent our becoming a morally contaminating influence among Jehovah’s people. With accurate knowledge of God’s Word, we can puncture and cut down false teachings, exposing their lack of logic and, in particular, their conflict with the Holy Scriptures.We do this not out of pride but out of humility and love for God, truth and our fellowman."

On page 33,34 I also agree with what the author says. On page 33 he mentions how we must honor our civil authorities. The author says"The bible says that we must honor and obey civil authorities." On page 34 talks about how the Gov't today cannot save us. Only the Gov't of God can save us. To quote the author" We knew our freedoms were from GOD, not the Gov't's generosity.""Do not put your trust in nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs. His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.”(So, any programs for betterment that rulers institute soon pass into the hands of others and are frequently abandoned.)"No matter who the ruler is, he will still be part of this world that lies in Satan’s power. “The God of heaven will set up a kingdom [a government] that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite.”: “He [Jehovah’s appointed king, Jesus Christ] will deliver the poor one crying for help, also the afflicted one and whoever has no helper. He will feel sorry for the lowly one and the poor one, and the souls of the poor ones he will save. From oppression and from violence he will redeem their soul, and their blood will be precious in his eyes.” (His concern for such people when he was on earth—his healing them, feeding multitudes, even laying down his life for them—shows that he will truly be the kind of ruler foretold in the prophecy.)Government by God is the only real solution to the problems of mankind."

On page 68 the author agrees that GOD created the earth and everything. On page 79 some people the author says do not know the meaning of prayer. The author says "While some Christians do use the names of Jesus or Mary as mantras, according to the bible, prayer is a rational conversation with God. Talking to GOD is possible only if the Creator is a person. Because the Buddha denied the existence of GOD, his followers developed spiritual rituals that involved mindless, mechanical prayer." The only way to truly have a relationship with Jehovah GOD is to pray to him in the name of son's Jesus' name.

Some people might find the history of how the horseshoe was made on page 102 and history of how the crusades started on page 120. On page 151 it mentions how the word congregation and assembly was started which I find very interesting.

I like what the author says on page 182. He says" God implies that we are to walk with Him, not follow the traditions and counsel of rebellious men. To make a difference one must life differently." I agree with this statement. People who claim to be Christian need to be different from the world. People should be able to see a different on a Christian acts, dresses, talks etc. Also on page 207 the author says what the bible clearly states that the meek will one day inherit the earth. And on page 280 the author agrees with the bible that the only reason to get a divorce is because of adultery and not any other reason.

On page 291 the author talks about how baptism is different when you are an adult then when you get baptized as a child. When you are a child, you have no say in the matter. Once you become to get to know GOD as an adult, you get baptized to cleanse yourself to make a dedication to Jehovah.The author says "Biblical Christians- who encouraged, even required, children to take personal responsibility for their spiritual lives-shaped the social ethos of America. Each person had to find GOD and live in a personal relationship with him.Knowing GOD as one's heavenly father changed the nature of family relationships on earth." The last good point in on page 381 which is the history of why we swear on the bible in court.

Overall I like the history of the bible, the authors opinions on the bible. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy learning about history and the truth about the bible and what is really states.

Notes: When I was quoting the author, I used his statements in quotes and said I was quoting the author. There are some other quotes in there as well and those are from my Watchtower CD Rom that I use as one of Jehovah's witnesses.

Review of Max On Life by Max Lucado

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I was very disappointed in this book and would not recommend it to anyone at all. I might throw this book in the trash after I write this review. This book was just horrible and not worth it to read.

The biggest thing that annoys me is that people believe that they will go to heaven when they die. Not True!!!!! The bible clearly states that when you die you are conscious of nothing, like you are sleeping.Which can be found in the bible in ecclesiastics. In ecclesiastics it says in chapter 9, verse 5: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” Yes the bible states that some people go to heaven but not everyone or good people as people claim. Only the 144,000 annoioted spirit creatures are giong to live in Heaven and be part of Jesus' kindgom and work along side him. The rest of us are giong to be on a paradise earth, becaue Jehovah will redo the earth and make it a paradise for us to live on where we can be with the animals and see our dead loved ones again. Ps. 37:9, 11, 29: “Evildoers themselves will be cut off, but those hoping in Jehovah are the ones that will possess the earth . . . The meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” Rev. 14:1-3: “I saw, and, look! the Lamb [Jesus Christ] standing upon the Mount Zion [in heaven; see Hebrews 12:22-24], and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. . . . And they are singing as if a new song . . . and no one was able to master that song but the hundred and forty-four thousand, who have been bought from the earth.” What will those who go to heaven do there?Rev. 20:6: “They will be priests of God and of the Christ, and will rule as kings with him for the thousand years.” (Also Daniel 7:27)

I am also annoyed that people think Jesus died on a cross which is not true. He died on a stake. This came from my Watchtower cd rom on my computer: The Greek word rendered “cross” in many modern Bible versions (“torture stake” in NW) is stau·ros′. In classical Greek, this word meant merely an upright stake, or pale. This also came from my cd rom: “The shape of the [two-beamed cross] had its origin in ancient Chaldea, and was used as the symbol of the god Tammuz (being in the shape of the mystic Tau, the initial of his name) in that country and in adjacent lands, including Egypt. By the middle of the 3rd cent. A.D. the churches had either departed from, or had travestied, certain doctrines of the Christian faith. In order to increase the prestige of the apostate ecclesiastical system pagans were received into the churches apart from regeneration by faith, and were permitted largely to retain their pagan signs and symbols. Hence the Tau or T, in its most frequent form, with the cross-piece lowered, was adopted to stand for the cross of Christ.”—An Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words (London, 1962), W. E. Vine, p. 256.

Another thing this book gets wrong is that GOD has a will for us. Simply not true. We live our life the best we can and sometimes bad things happen. That's because the bible mentions how unforeseen occurrences can happen.Sometimes we may have hardships but sometimes it is because we are not living our life they way we should and so its our own fault. In the chapter Galatians in the bible it talks about we reap what we sow. Gal. 6:7: “Do not be misled: God is not one to be mocked. For whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.”

A fourth thing this book gets wrong is that this author believes that baptism is not required for salvation and that this the furthest things from the truth. When you are ready to serve Jehovah you must make a dedication to him. Those who believe the bible is truth want to get baptized so we can tell others about how wonderful Jehovah is. And to be baptized as an adult is by immersing yourself completely in water so you can be made clean. So baptism is a big part of getting to know and love Jehovah and if you truly love him you will get baptized and preach about him until the end of the days get here. Baptism is a step to show that you love Jehovah and want to tell others about him. It is a thing a mature christian does to show their love for Jehovah and to preach about him.

My two last points I hated about this book is the stance on gay marriage the author has and how he believed people go to hell. Gay marriage is not ok. The bible clearly states the being gay is wrong and that marriage should be between a woman and a man and not between 2 women or two men. Homosexual acts, heterosexual sex between unmarried persons, and bestiality are all condemned in the Bible. (Exodus 22:19; Ephesians 5:3-5) God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of such sexual practices.—Genesis 13:13; 18:20; 19:4, 5, 24, 25. And there is no hell. Once you die you are sleeping such as the scripture above showed. People want to show God as someone who is mean and not loving and wants to punish us for our sins but GOD is a loving GOD who would not do that. The bible says that once you die you have paid your wages. Then once you have died, you are acquitted for your sins. So there would be no reason to punish someone after they die.

Anyway I did not like this book because it had a lot of misconceptions in it and when you have a book that is made for millions of people to read you are also misleading them and that is not right. People want to know the truth of what the bible really teaches and a book to read about that is what the bible really teaches published by Jehovah's witnesses and will tell you the real truth about what the bible really is about and not what people want to hear from churches to get their ears tickled or whatever that phrase it. After today I am throwing this book out and will not be telling anyone about it or recommending it at all. Simply disgusting really.
