Mike Tyson visited Toronto this week to appear in his one-man Broadway show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.”
While he was there, he met with Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, and took the time to endorse Ford’s re-election bid.
You’ll recall that Ford has had his problems in the past. Drug abuse. A stint in a rehab facility. And now this – an endorsement from Mike Tyson. How much can one man stand?
Check out the clip below from CBC News. They report that Tyson called Ford the “best mayor in Toronto history.”
Tyson also stopped by a local news show to promote his show, and the host – Nathan Downer – dared to bring up Tyson’s criminal past. That’s when Tyson unleashed a tirade of expletives, showing his disdain for the host.
We can’t share it here – it’s pretty nasty – but it’s easy enough to find on line if you’re interested (Huffington Post has it, for instance).
Once upon a time, Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor of California.
And one upon a time, he was also married to Maria Shriver, but that marriage ended badly, in divorce, after the world found out that Arnold had fathered a child with their longtime housekeeper.
Actually, both ended at about the same time, four years ago.
Fast forward to this week. Arnold returned to the state house in Sacramento to unveil his official gubernatorial portrait.
Folks in the know say that the portrait was touched up – and not too well – to remove a lapel pin that bore Maria’s likeness. Check out the portrait of the Governator – I drew a circle around the smudge on the left lapel where the pin used to be.
If you believe the sources, he literally took his ex out of the picture.
It looks like Arnold’s trying to rewrite history, just like the Terminator.
If this works, maybe he can make us forget Expendables 3.
Over the weekend, the former first family of Alaska might have been involved in a brawl.
That’s what some official and not-so-much sources are reporting, anyway, about Sarah Palin and her family.
The communications director of the Anchorage PD confirmed that there was a fracas late on Saturday night at a house party for the Iron Dog snowmobile race. “Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in the incident,” says the spokesman. “Some of the Palin family members were in attendance at the party.”
A local blogger picks up the action. It was, she says, “a nice, mellow party” until the Palin Clan showed up. There was a confrontation, and all of a sudden, “Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, ‘Don’t you know who I am!’”
No arrests were made, but according to the APD, there is still an active investigation by the police and the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office.
Hey, it’s summertime in Alaska. Things happen, right?
It’s something that’s been bugging pop music fans for hours now.
To whom is Taylor Swift referring in her upcoming song, “Bad Blood?”
She told Rolling Stone that she’d written the song about her rivalry with a fellow female artist.It was all related to business. Whoever it is, Taylor said, tried to sabotage an arena tour and hire some people away from her.
Could it be Miley Cyrus? Could it be Katy Perry?
Everyone has an opinion, and everyone was happy to share it.
Now, the folks at US Weekly say that sources tell them the inspiration for the song was Katy Perry.
No real confirmation. Just “sources say.”
But really, that ought to be enough to put this to bed, don’t you think?
