.Utah paper rejects same-sex wedding announcement

This undated image provided by Spencer Jones, left, shows Tyler Barrick and Spencer Jones. A southern Utah newspaper has rejected a California gay couple’s wedding announcement, saying its policy is to publish announcements only for marriages legal under state law. The couple say The Spectrum in St. George initially accepted their paid wedding announcement last week, then changed course. The couple was legally married June 17, 2008, in San Francisco.

No More Perks: Coffee Shops Pull the Plug on Laptop Users

A sign at Naidre’s, a small neighborhood coffee shop in Brooklyn, N.Y., begins warmly: “Dear customers, we are absolutely thrilled that you like us so much that you want to spend the day…”

But, it continues, “…people gotta eat, and to eat they gotta sit.” At Naidre’s in Park Slope and its second location in nearby Carroll Gardens, Wi-Fi is free. But since the spring of 2008, no laptops have been allowed between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekends, unless the customer is eating and typing at the same time.

Amid the economic downturn, there are fewer places in New York to plug in computers. As idle workers fill coffee-shop tables — nursing a single cup, if that, and surfing the Web for hours — and as shop owners struggle to stay in business, a decade-old love affair between coffee shops and laptop-wielding customers is fading. In some places, customers just get cold looks, but in a growing number of small coffee shops, firm restrictions on laptop use have been imposed and electric outlets have been locked. The laptop backlash may predate the recession, but the recession clearly has accelerated it.

“You don’t want to discourage it, it’s a wonderful tradition,” says Naidre’s owner Janice Pullicino, 53 years old. A former partner in a computer-graphics business, Ms. Pullicino insists she loves technology and hates to limit its use. But when she realized that people with laptops were taking up seats and driving away the more lucrative lunch crowd, she put up the sign. Last fall, she covered up some of the outlets, describing that as a “cost-cutting measure” to save electricity.

So far, this appears to be largely a New York phenomenon, though San Francisco’s Coffee Bar does now put out signs when the shop is crowded asking laptop users to share tables and make space for other customers.

Top 10 Reality Romances Gone Wrong

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Jessica and Nick, Jon and Kate, Britney and K-Fed…what do these former celebrity couples have in common? They have all fallen victim to the reality romance curse!

Many a Hollywood couple has found the opportunity to turn their real-life romance into a small screen hit! While these couples start off as love stricken stars, things quickly turn and the love fizzles. We could argue that the couples would have never lasted, but it seems to be a consistent trend, that once you take your love to the airwaves, the reality romance curse is bound to set in!
Access counts down the Top 10 reality romances that turned sour!

10. Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav – Perhaps the most bizarre reality pairing in history! These two “Surreal” stars first found love on the set of the VH1 series “The Surreal Life.” They left audiences bewildered, and wondering if their love was the real deal. VH1 quickly monopolized on the odd-couple and created the spin-off series “Strange Love,” which explored the in and outs of the eccentric duo. The duo finally split in 2005 after an on-camera breakdown. We hope the power of reality TV conjures up some more strange pairs in the future!

9. Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro – The Playmate and her rocker beau withstood one reality show, centered around their dating relationship, and faced another reality hurdle after they tied the knot with the MTV series, “Til Death Do Us Part.” The former Mrs. Dennis Rodman displayed her unusual relationship with her rocker mate Dave in the very short-lived reality show. After only three years of marriage, the pair decided to split. Although the two may have fallen out of love, the break-up remained amicable. The two are still good friends!

8. Hulk and Linda Hogan – The wrestling star faced an out of the ring battle when his wife of 24 years filed for divorce in 2007. The duo had been on the rocks for a decade and their VH1 reality series, “Hogan Knows Best,” highlighted their martial struggles. Although the couple had struggled publicly, their reality series was apparently the last straw. Since the divorce, the Hogans have gone their separate ways. Linda is now dating 20-year-old Charley Hill and the Hulkster has been linked to Brooke Hogan look-alike Jennifer McDaniel.

7. Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler – The inked Blink-182 drummer and the former Miss USA may have been an unconventional pair, but the two seemed head over heels during the first season of MTV’s “Meet The Barkers.” The love story quickly came to an end after reports of infidelity spread and the second season of the series became the pair’s last. The two filed for divorce after only two years of marriage. They have two children together, and Shanna has a 7-year-old daughter from a previous relationship with boxer Oscar De Le Hoya. Shanna and Travis have been up and down since their split, exchanging a few public jabs. But when Travis needed Shanna most after his near-fatal jet crash, she was reportedly right by his side. Kudos for setting aside the reality curse!

6. Lauren Conrad and Jason Whaler – The reality teens started dating during their stint on the MTV hit “Laguna Beach.” Shortly after the teens left “Laguna,” Lauren headed for “The Hills.” Jason became a fixture during the show’s first season, and the two endured a roller coaster relationship. During the season finale, Lauren famously turned down an internship in Paris to stay with her beach beau. In August of 2006, the couple called it quits. To make matters worse, some claim it was Jason who started spreading the infamous “Hills” sex tape rumors that drove LC and Heidi apart. Although, Spencer certainly didn’t help much. Lauren recently retired from “The Hills” and is currently dating actor, Kyle Howard. We hope that her departure from reality TV helps her maintain a stable relationship!

5. Hugh Hefner and ‘The Girls Next Door’ – The Playboy pimp and his entourage of leading ladies — Holly, Bridget, and Kendra — started off as one big happy family. But after a few seasons of their E! Reality series, “The Girls Next Door,” the three lovely bunnies bounced! The infamous magazine mogul has made a career out of romancing young women, and the “Girls Next Door” seemed no different. After three seasons of captivating audiences, the bunnies left the mansion one by one. First to go was main girlfriend Holly Madison, who briefly dated Las Vegas illusionist Criss Angel. Second to step away was Bridget, who had been with Hef since 2002. Lastly, Kendra packed up and left the mansion. Kendra signed on for her own reality show, aptly titled “Kendra,” with new fiance Hank Baskett. She recently announced that she has a baby on the way, so let’s hope that these two can fend off the curse!

4. Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft – Jason became the fan favorite after being rejected by “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas, and was then chosen to become the next “Bachelor” where he could try to control his own love destiny. But oh, how perceptions quickly change. The single father was left with two lucky ladies during the season finale, and ultimately chose Texas native Melissa Rycroft. During a tumultuous “After The Rose” show, Jason dropped a bomb on Melissa — and the viewers — by dumping her on national television. Melissa was shocked, but the real jaw-dropper came when Jason asked for a second chance with runner-up Molly Malaney. After getting dumped, Melissa came back swinging with a successful stint on the ABC series “Dancing With the Stars.” Jason and Molly are still going strong, and Melissa recently got engaged to insurance agent Tye Strickland. This reality romance went sour, but looks like everything turned out for the best!

3. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline – It’s the classic story of pop princess meets… back-up dancer?? Britney and her former back up dancer, Kevin Federline, exchanged vows in a secret 2004 wedding, and went on to have two sons together. The two shared the small screen in their appropriately titled reality series “Chaotic,” which showcased the pop starlet and her bad boy beau sharing their lives together. Rumors of infidelity quickly spread, and after only two years of marriage, the duo called it quits, claiming “irreconcilable differences.” Britney suffered from a very public meltdown and folks within her inner circle worried about her sanity and career. Now back on tour and reportedly dating her manager, the pop queen shares custody of her two children with Kevin and the two remain civil. It was recently announced that Mr. Federline will be taking his two sons and his new girlfriend back to the small screen for a VH1 reality series. For entertainment purposes, we hope this show is just as “Chaotic!”

2. Jon and Kate Gosselin – The picture perfect family has crumbled, and is now is in the center of a full-blown media hurricane! The two started out as the idyllic parents of two — and then soon eight — adorable children in 2007 with the launch of their TLC hit “Jon and Kate Plus Eight.” Cameras followed the couple as we watched them struggle to raise sextuplets and twins. Fans soon began siding with the two very different parents, controlling Kate and easy going Jon. Earlier this year, rumors quickly started flying that Jon was allegedly cheating on Kate and that the two were headed for splitsville. Rumors of the rift were confirmed in June when the couple officially filed for divorce, and production of their show was put on halt. In recent days Jon has been galloping around town with 22-year-old Hailey Glassman, while Kate has been at home with the kids. For the sake of the 8, we hope that these two can remain friends!

1. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey – The original reality romance gone bad! These two pop stars met in 1998 and were a match made in music heaven! The stars exchanged vows in 2002 with a lavish Texas ceremony. MTV soon picked up the rights to the couple’s martial bliss by signing on for “Newlyweds.” The couple soon became America’s sweethearts, with a slew of unforgettable moments that centered on Jessica’s consistent blonde antics — perhaps, most famously her “Chicken of the Sea’ mix-up. In 2006, after only three years of marriage, the couple called it quits. Nick soon started dating actress Vanessa Minillo, while Jessica was linked to John Mayer and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo. Both Nick and Jessica recently parted ways with their significant others and rumors of a rekindled love were soon in full force. Could we see a Jess and Nick reunion? Only time — and the world of reality TV — will tell!

Trump lawyers demand trial in defamation case

theapprentice_img

CAMDEN, New Jersey (Reuters) – Lawyers for real estate mogul Donald Trump urged a judge on Monday to allow his defamation case against a journalist to go forward, saying the writer damaged his reputation by contending he is not a billionaire.

But lawyers for author Timothy O’Brien and his publisher, Time Warner Inc unit Warner Books, denied Trump had lost business opportunities as a result of the 2005 book, and urged New Jersey Superior Court Judge Michele Fox to dismiss the lawsuit.

Fox, after a two-hour hearing, said she would rule within two months on whether the case should be thrown out or go to a jury trial in October.

Trump, who filed the lawsuit in 2006 and is seeking billions in damages, did not attend the proceedings.

The book, “Trump Nation: The Art of Being the Donald,” cited three unnamed sources estimating Trump’s worth at $150 million to $250 million, much less than the billions that the developer and television personality has said he is worth.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Monday, Trump said he is worth $5 billion, not counting the value of his brand name.

That follows a deposition given to O’Brien’s lawyers in which Trump put his wealth at more than $4 billion, the Journal said.

In 2005, Deutsche Bank estimated his net worth as $788 million in a calculation made for the bank’s underwriting of a $640 million construction loan for some of Trump’s Chicago properties, the newspaper reported.

In court, Trump attorney William Tambussi attacked the credibility of O’Brien’s anonymous sources, saying their estimates of his client’s net worth widely varied.

“The same source can’t go from $60 million to $250 million and be considered reliable,” Tambussi said.

Trump’s reputation was damaged by the book’s statements including that he was the “court jester of the American business scene” and that “As a businessman, he is a train wreck,” Tambussi told the court.

Andrew Ceresney, an attorney for O’Brien, said his client had worked with the sources cited in his book before, and was confident that they had inside knowledge of Trump’s finances. He said O’Brien had not acted maliciously.

Ceresney also said Trump had not lost business opportunities as a result of the book, which he said did not sell very well. He questioned Trump’s claim that he had lost four overseas development projects as a result of negative publicity surrounding the book.

“There is no evidence in the record that these four even existed, save for Mr. Trump’s own self-serving statements,” Ceresney said.

Anca Florea, concediata de la Antena 3


Dupa ce s-a chinuit un an de zile sa ridice audientele emisiunii VDTV la cote multumitoare, Anca Florea a ramas fara serviciu. Surse din post sustin ca atitudinea sfidatoare si criteriile subiective ale Ancai in alegerea invitatiilor i-au determinat pe cei de la Intact sa renunte atat la moderatoare, cat si la formatul emisiunii mondene.

Desi nu i-a picat prea bine aceasta veste, Anca Florea a incercat sa salveze situatia in ultima editie a emisiunii. “Trebuie sa recunoasteti ca o emisiune mondena, nu are ce cauta in grila unui canal de stiri”, a precizat aceasta, cu ochii in lacrimi. (C.C.)
