You know what’s crazy? The only reason I was upset because of Peter Gunz actions was because of the possibility that his girlfriend Tara had no head’s up that this situation would slap her in the face on Reality TV to reveal the fool she had been on National television for all her family and friends to see. Lots of women live secret relationships SOLO of course, (so secret the men have no clue the relationships even exist) Which take you back to my article entitled (3 Steps to Recognizing Delusional behavior) Continue reading
Looks like Kodi Whitfield managed to be the “Talk of the Day” in College Football by Making the “CATCH OF THE YEAR”. According ALL THE TOP COLLEGE FOOTBALL REPORTS and to our friends at Mercury News editor Tim Kawakami
Was that the college football catch of the year? The greatest, most artistic grab in Stanford history?
Maybe that’s all debatable, but there’s no doubt Kodi Whitfield’s mind-blowing one-handed touchdown reception Saturday was the most spectacular in Whitfield family history.
“But I’ve never seen the backhand glove. He caught the point of that ball with a reverse grip.
“To catch it there and then tuck it back in, I’m proud of that. I can’t do that!”
Nobody is supposed to be able to do that. Who knew even Kodi Whitfield could do that, until he did.
But Whitfield said he had one thought while Kevin Hogan’s pass was up in the air — and heading toward the first or second row, it looked like.
“You’ve got to catch this one — got to catch this one,” Kodi Whitfield recalled thinking.
“It was one of the few targets I had this week, so I knew I’ve got to make every one of them count …
“I lined up out wide to the left, beat the defender one-on-one, didn’t really see the safety and I guess Hogan didn’t either. But he gave me a chance, threw it up there, and I was able to bring it in with one hand.”
As his father noted, Whitfield cupped the ball backhanded — sort of like Julius Erving before a tomahawk dunk — and also had to snatch it down quickly before safety Anthony Jefferson sailed through the area a split-second later.
And why didn’t he use his left hand on the catch?
“It was actually being pinned by the defender,” Whitfield said. “But luckily I think I have big hands.”
Whitfield’s TD came on second-and-18 (after a big loss) and put Stanford up 10-3, giving the Cardinal a lead it would never surrender.
Stanford needed this game — after last weekend’s loss in Utah — to get back into the Rose Bowl race; Stanford needed that play.
How did he do this?
“I would say genetics,” Stanford coach David Shaw said, “but Bob is 6-7, 335 pounds, so I don’t think it came from Dad. It was just a phenomenal play.
“God bless Kodi; every time we’ve given him an opportunity, he’s made a play. And (starters) Devon Cajuste and Ty Montgomery are playing great. But every time we put Kodi in, he makes a great play.”
A large part of what made the catch instantly indelible was happenstance — Whitfield probably wasn’t the No. 1 option on the play, and if the ball was going his way, it probably should’ve been thrown earlier.
But that’s how minor football miracles occur — something goes a little bit offline, and it takes an epic performance to pluck it back.
“Technically, that ball was thrown extremely late,” Shaw said with a smile.
As both Whitfields related, it was also a major moment for Kodi because before this game, he had only nine receptions this season, with little major impact.
On Saturday: two catches, one with momentous impact.
“That’s helluva way to get off the schneid — no touchdowns all year, and to make a big play at a pivotal time,” Bob Whitfield said. “It changed momentum.
“I think that was an inspiring moment for him because as a receiver, they want the damn ball all the time …
“I think that last time, he was like, ‘This is my opportunity. Go get it.’ I’m proud of that kid.”
Of course, when I asked Kodi what he figured his dad would say to him after the game, he laughed and said he was sure it’d be about blocking.
A few minutes later, Bob Whitfield proved his son correct.
“I get (to) all the bad stuff first — ‘what happened on that run play when that little corner knifed in?’ ” Bob Whitfield said, chuckling. —‰’How come you didn’t dig?’ We go through that first.
“And then we get to, ‘Dang, great glove!’ “
The pressing Whitfield question: Did Bob ever get a chance to showcase his hands by catching a pass in his college or pro career?
Sadly, the answer is no … “but he recovered a couple of fumbles,” Kodi helpfully added.
Now the Whitfield family has quite a highlight. An all-time reception, at a huge moment, and a play that will live on in “SportsCenter” history for a long, long time.
“I’m sure my parents will have a copy for me,” Kodi Whitfield said.
He will see it for the rest of his career, and his life.
All Whitfield wants is to keep catching balls, keep getting chances, and if you keep throwing his way — or anywhere near him — he probably will come down with it.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta should probably include #WWF on their title or maybe add the “Let’s Get Ready To Rumbleeeeeee” to their intro song. From the looks of the Trailer and the media headlines while the cast have been filming, it looks like there will be fights, fights and more fights. Wait! It said BarONE was in foreclosure??? WTH!

Nene Leakes slammed so-called close friend, bridesmaid and reality show star wanna-be Marlo Hampton as an over-the-top diva who is not even a star and who was never asked to be a full-time member of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” According to the story written by Terry Shropshire “Friend of the site” and Rollingout.com editor at large.
“After working with Marlo on the show (“I Dream of Nene”), I could see why she was not a housewife, because she’s super difficult,” NeNe said. “She’s super extra.”
Now, Hampton claps back at Leakes, saying that producers love her prickly personality or else she never would have been casted in both shows to begin with. Furthermore, Hampton clarifies, she has never become a full-time housewife is not because of her attitude, but because she is not married.
“I have no husband, so I can’t even be a full-time housewife,” Marlo says.
But she does say that it’s her unique personality that allows her to show up on the Bravo screen.
“There’s nothing normal about me — I love being extra and I own it,” she says in an interview with radaronline.com. “That’s part of Marlo. Me being normal, you wouldn’t see me every week being on the show and I’m sure she wouldn’t have asked me to be in her wedding if I wasn’t extra.”
Hampton continues, “Everyone loves my personality. The producers love me. Which producer wouldn’t love me? It would be a fool not to, right?”
“It just would be friend of the housewives, [but] I always just say a cast member because I’m on it,” Marlo explains. “I’m being called to tape… so I would definitely say I’m a cast member with Bravo.”
Marlo even confirms that she will be appearing in the upcoming Season 6 of RHOA.
“I’m taping a couple of scenes here and there,” she says. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to tell you that, but yeah.”
Even if Hampton ever got married, she doubts she would option to become a full-time cast member on RHOA.
“It depends on what my husband would want,” she says. “That would definitely have to be 50-50 because I feel some men would not [like that]. You know I want to marry a successful man, so hopefully [he would] tell me it’s not for me.”
Besides, Hampton embraces her uniqueness from the other housewives.
“I’m different and I’m okay being different,” she admits. “I’m on my own little planet and I’m fine on it.”
Kris and Bruce Jenner are one Hollywood couple ready to say they’re over . What’s crazy is people have been so consumed with Kanye and Kim. Kim and her ex husband. Kim Kardashian and her baby! Khloe and Lamar that NOBODY knew or seems to be really cared they had been for a while. Fox News
Kris and Bruce Jenner have confirmed they separated a year ago, after 22 years together.
In an interview with US magazine hitting newsstands Friday, Kris Jenner says their scenes together on the show have been genuine and there’s no animosity between them. She says they’re committed to their family.
Her former Olympic champion husband says they’ll always love and respect each other.
News of the split was first reported by E! News.
They say no divorce papers have been filed and that Bruce will continue to appear on the family’s reality show.
The admission explains why on recent episodes, Bruce Jenner moved out to his own beach house, saying he needed more space.
The couple’s teenage daughters, Kendall and Kylie, were also filmed joining him for the summer, because their house with mom Kris was too crowded after half-sister Kim Kardashian moved in with Kanye West and their new daughter.
Since Bruce Jenner moved out, he’s still featured on the series often. Kris Jenner has taped scenes at his new home, as have the other Kardashian kids.
Fifty-seven-year-old Kris Jenner and 63-year-old Bruce Jenner married in April 1991, less than a year after getting fixed up on a blind date.
At the time, Bruce had already been married twice before and had four kids.
Kris Jenner was newly divorced from Robert Kardashian, a prominent attorney who represented O.J. Simpson in the murder trial of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman. She already had four kids, Kim, Khloe —wife of NBA star Lamar Odom— Kourtney Kardashian and Rob Kardashian.
Bruce Jenner has served as a father figure to Kris Jenner’s children, especially since the death of Robert Kardashian in 2003 of cancer.
“Keeping up with the Kardashians” is in its eighth season on the E! network.

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first Porsha Stewart alleged practices to deceive. Hmmmm was there valid reasons that Kordell was locking Porsha out of the house because maybe she was creeping in a 2-3am out Twerking it Somewhere? Continue reading
Honey I didn’t have to have any Martini’s watching the ReUnion show because it kept my attention every second SOBER! The girls were all dressed and face beat to perfection. I loved Kandi’s look any ponytail. Porsha denies ever being malicious and claims that Kenya has been jealous of her since they first met, reasoning that Kenya is envious of her youth and marriage to Kordell. However, Kenya denies being jealous, saying, “If Kordell married her to be a trophy, she’ll be dumped at 40 like Sheree.” Andy is so messy
Oh What a Tangled Web We WEAVE! When first we practice to deceive. But who was really doing the deceiving here? Was Kordell deceiving Porsha into believing that her picture perfect life was really the life she would be privy to “Til Death Do they Part” as stated and quoted by both of them in their marriage vows OR Was Porsha sneaky and deceiving Kordell into thinking she would not continue on with the Real Housewives of Atlanta but in secret Porsha was really digging her ability to travel with girlfriends and girltalk with castmate NeNe Leakes learning more about NeNe’s interesting life as a stripper? Maybe Porsha was loving getting her own checks with her name printed on them and depositing them into her own account, and buying things with her own debit/credit card and not having to ask permission for every whereabout. I mean she was able to sneak out and seek the advice of Dr Sherry on her marriage without Kordell’s permission. Maybe this was the beginning of a new life for the newly Bravo Housewife of Atlanta 18th Housewife to get a divorce since the inception of the franchise. Maybe there can be more to Porsha than to be in the 24%centile of housewives to kick their husband to the curb. Is Porsha really Bear Rabbit who really wanted to be the carrot bush? Time will tell.
Now let’s see what our friends over at Hollywood Life has to say about the matter:
‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star wanted more out of life than just being a stay at home wife. A source close to Porsha tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that when she voiced her concerns to Kordell, the ex NFL star wasn’t having it!
Porsha Stewart has big dreams and wants more out of life than being at Kordell Stewart‘s beck and call. Sources close to Porsha, 31, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was “tired” of Kordell’s controlling ways.
“Porsha has dreams and ambition, but her man was just too damn controlling and wanted her home all the time, cooking and cleaning and doing chores,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“They don’t have any help at that house and its gigantic. He made her do all the work and I think she got tired of it all and confronted him,” the source adds.
Prior to Porsha joining the Bravo reality show, she was subservient to Kordell. In fact, she’s even said on the show how she treats her husband like a king!
Porsha Stewart Reaches Out To ‘RHOA’ Co-Stars For Advice
Now that Porsha has been hanging with her RHOA co-stars, she’s thinking about her future and has solicited the advice of the other ladies.
“She got around all those strong women on the show like NeNe [Leakes] and Phaedra [Parks] and they gave her advice on her marriage and I think she took what they told her – and got on her high horse and took that to Kordell – but clearly he wasn’t having it. Porsha is a cool girl, don’t get me wrong, but she shouldn’t have let these other rich girls get in her ear about her marriage. If she didn’t, she’d still have a man,” the source says.
Porsha Is Blindsided By Kordell’s Decision To File For Divorce
Porsha said she was completely blindsided by Kordell filing divorce papers in Atlanta on Mar. 22. On March 26, Porsha’s rep released this statement below to Us Weekly:
“Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce. Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”
