Since I’m SUCH a nice person, I thought I’d round up some posts from last week that I missed out on posting, so you won’t feel all left out and detached from the gossip world.
JUANITA BYNUM FILES FOR DIVORCE Â»
I’m sure you guys remember the JUANITA BYNUM STORY we posted about a couple of weeks ago. The well-known televangelist has apparently filed for divorce!
Iâ€™m not crying just because I was kicked or I was choked. Thereâ€™s more to it than that for me. I know that scars heal, but I lost somebody that I loved very much. I know people go through this saying ‘I loved him.’ No, I love him … My love for Bishop Weeks I don’t think will ever die. I said this to someone yesterday, my love for him, separating what I experienced in that parking lot, I have enough love. It’s so much until I THINK I CAN MARRY HIM TWICE, but this one is over.
And that’s not all! Apparently last month’s assault wasn’t the first physical altercation between the two. CLICK HERE for more on that!
PARIS HILTON SUES HALLMARK OVER “THAT’S HOT” CARD Â»
Paris Hilton is suing over the use of her picture and catchphrase “That’s hot” on a greeting card. Hilton sued Hallmark Cards Inc. in U.S. District Court seeking an injunction and unspecified damages to be determined at trial. According to the lawsuit filed earlier this month, the card is titled “Paris’s First Day as a Waitress” and shows a photo of Hilton’s face on a cartoon of a waitress serving a plate of food to a patron. In a dialogue bubble she says, “Don’t touch that, it’s hot.” The customer cartoon asks, “What’s hot?” She answers, “That’s hot.”
The suit says Hilton owns the trademark “That’s hot,” which was registered on Feb. 13, 2007. The lawsuit claims commercial appropriation of identity, invasion of privacy, misappropriation of publicity, false representation that Hilton endorses the product, and infringement of a federally registered trademark. The damages would be based on profits from the $2.49 cards, said Hilton attorney Brent Blakely. Hallmark defended the card as parody, which is normally protected under fair-use law. “Some of Hallmark’s new humor greeting cards are parodies of today’s most popular celebrities and politicians,” said Hallmark spokeswoman Julie O’Dell in an e-mailed statement. “These cards take a satirical look at news and gossip surrounding these public figures, including Paris Hilton, and we do not believe Hallmark has violated any of Ms. Hilton’s rights,” she said.

Oscar-winning “Dreamgirls” star Jennifer Hudson is being lined up for a part in the upcoming movie version of hit television show “Sex and the City.” Hudson is in final negotiations to play the assistant to central character Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, according to movie industry journals the Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety. “Sex and the City” — which follows the tangled love lives of four New York women — went off air in 2004 after a successful six seasons that saw it become one of the most talked-about series in US television history. Filming for the movie gets underway in New York later this month, with all of the principal stars from the television series reprising their roles. I’m glad she got this deal, because we all know how her “singing career” is doing =X
