Bow Wow claims he was once in a relationship with Kim Kardashian

Which could be interpreted as interesting considering Bow Wow is a known and documented liar (ehum).   According to Hollywood Unlocked, the can't-seem-to-tell--the-truth "wrapper" claimed in a recent interview that he once dated Kim Kardashian (ehum, allegedly in secret). The claims probably aren't even true, but like other websites, we're giving Shad the benefit of the doubt.  Granted this appears (or "would have been")  before 2006,  he,  cites the reason why he kept it a secret "was because he had never dated outside of his race". Ehum, yeah, coming from the same guy who once said he wasn't black and that he was mixed. “We was cool, we remained friends. And this was right before Reggie Bush. The reason nobody knew is because of how I move, he said. We kicked it hard. I’m just s...

Louisiana man arrested in infamous Nigerian scam

NIGERIA --  A man has finally been arrested in connection to probably one of the most infamous Nigerian scams ever.   If you've ever gotten one of those mysterious e-mails from a Nigerian Prince promising some sort of weird inheritance, you won't get them any longer. According to USA Today,  after an 18-month investigation Michael Neu, 67, was arrested by federal authorities.   Police say that Neu notoriously bilked people out of thousands of dollars, but instead of sending the inheritance to those promised, he would apparently wire the money to offshore accounts. "Most people laugh at the thought of falling for such a fraud, but law enforcement officials report annual losses of millions of dollars to these schemes," the Slidell Police Department states.

'Meg's family (our family) is complete with sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins, and the ...

The drug was available with good intentions, and then, came the terrifying greed
