Always outspoken and opinionated, Florida Congressman Allan West has made a recent stir on blogs and in the news after comments made against the Democrats on Saturday.
“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” West said Saturday at a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach, according to News One. “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”
Allen West’s comment immediately received retaliation from the Democratic Party, with former Reid spokesman Jim Manley having some choice words for West in his own Twitter feed.
Sunday’s Pro Bowl had little excitement with most players seeming to be phoning in their performances but not Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
The University of Central Florida alumni made a touchdown catch in every quarter, catching a game total of six passes for 176 yards, helping secure the AFC’s victory over the NFC, 59-4.
Marshall’s unwavering persistence and determination garnered him the game’s MVP, and his name will now sit next to the likes of Walter Payton, Gale Sayers and Peyton Manning on the MVP banners at Aloha Stadium.
“You never know when you’re going to be back,” Marshall said, “and I wanted to go all out today because it could be my last Pro Bowl,” as reported by USA Today.
This year’s Pro Bowl had 36 first-timers with rookie quarterback Cam Newtown of the Carolina Panthers and Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals each replacing Eli Manning and Tom Brady. This was the first Pro Bowl that featured two rookie shot-callers.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Kim Richards opens up on her substance abuse
The truth behind the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards’ December trip to rehab has finally come into the open. Those around the 47-year-old child star point to Richards’ tumultuous relationship with her younger sister Kyle and Richards’ own substance abuse problem, reports ABC News.
On a “Good Morning America” interview younger sister Kyle, 42, noted that her older sister’s decision to enter rehab had nothing to do with the Housewives.
“It was our family and sitting down, and she really felt it was time,” Kyle stated. “I have to give her credit for making that decision on her own.”
The reality television star was often seen stumbling over her words and throwing fits on camera, even moving in with a man that her family didn’t approve off.
Though Richards, in an interview that is slated to appear Feb. 13 with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, admits that she is an alcoholic and thus the reason for her stint in rehab.
Her candid statement in a preview of the interview with Cohen shows a clean and sober Richards stating, “I’m an alcoholic.” While Richards’ outrageous and over-the-top antics were what attracted so many viewers to the show, her clear admission of addiction is a complete turn around from her continuous on-air denial of alcohol dependency.
Bueller is making a comeback at this year’s Super Bowl XLVI. The 80s pop icon, portrayed by Matthew Broderick, is slated to appear in a commercial during the Feb. 5 game, according to Newsday.
When the commercial’s teaser first broke, there was much speculation buzzing around the internet that Bueller was returning to the silver screen, but it turns out that Honda is behind the teaser. It’s belived that the automotive giant plans on using its CR-Z sports car to recreate some of the movie’s most iconic scenes, which originally used a Ferrari 250 California.
The released 10-second teaser shows Broderick walking up to a window, pulling the curtains apart and asking, “How can I handle work on a day like today?” The line is a clear parody of Broderick’s classic line from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. “How can I go to school on a day like today?”
Honda has received much negative backlash from the video. Angry fans, who have all been hoping for a sequel, have bombarded the the internet, claiming that they will never purchase a Honda product again.
