WTH: Former Brazilian Footballer "Joao Rodrigo Silva" Killed And Beheaded.

Police in Brazil have launched a manhunt after the severed head of a former professional footballer was left on the doorstep of his home. The horrified wife of Joao Rodrigo Silva Santos, 35, made the gruesome discovery as she left the house in Rio de Janeiro for work early yesterday morning. The player’s eyes and tongue had been cut out and his head placed inside one of his own rucksacks, police said. Mr Santos retired from football two years ago after a successful career playing for several teams in Rio de Janeiro, as well as for clubs in Sweden and Honduras. He had recently set up his own business selling health foods and dietary supplements. Police said today that Mr Santos is believed to have been snatched from outside the shop he had opened in the Realengo district of Rio as he closed up at around 7.45pm on Monday. Witnesses said they saw several men bundling him into his car, a Hyundai i30, and speeding off just before midnight, a spokesman said. He was reported missing by his wife at 9pm on Monday.

Scandal: Kerry Washington a.k.a Olivia Pope Is Pregnant!

Congratulations....According to a USWeekly report, Kerry Washington, like her Scandal alter ego Olivia Pope, sure knows how to keep a secret. The 36-year-old actress, who married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in a super covert ceremony in June, has yet another surprise on the way — a baby! As the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively reveals, the Scandal star is pregnant with her first child.

“She’s about four months along,” a pal tells Us of Washington. (Thus far, the mom-to-be has kept any hint of a baby bump concealed under roomy dresses.)

This will be the first child for the Emmy-nominated beauty, who married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Asomugha on June 24 in Hailey, Idaho. According to reports, the couple first started dating in the summer of 2012; Washington was previously engaged to actor David Moscow.

Kanye West Thinks Kim Kardashian Is More Influential Than Michelle Obama...

According to an interview reported on ENews, Kanye allegedly compared Kim Kardashian to Michelle Obama. It’s not exactly a surprise that Kanye West is Kim Kardashian’s biggest fan. The 36-year-old musician sang his fiancĂ©e’s praises during an On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio interview on Tuesday, Oct. 29. In fact, he’s lobbying to get the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star her first Vogue cover.

“There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday,” he said, noting that reality stars have often been overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines. “And collectively, we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [Barack Obama] is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day.”

When his girl landed the cover of CR Fashion Book, West saw it as a transcendent moment. “[Former French Vogue editor] Carine Roitfeld supports my girl. That’s a breakthrough,” he explained. “There’s a wall of classism that we are breaking through.”West said it’s not his intention to be controversial. “That’s not my concern,” he shared. “My concern is doing God’s work and he’ll work everything else out.”

It's only in Nigeria one will hear this type of news...

The Delta State Government, yesterday, failed to persuade the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court to grant it ownership of the $15million that was allegedly offered to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in 2007, by convicted former Governor of the state, Chief James Ibori.

Bela's Corner: Things Women Try To Change About Their Men But Can't...

These are some of the things women try to change about their men all the time and never can;

HIS “CHILDISH” HOBBIES
Maybe it’s a fantasy football league, or video games, or a beer pong team that meets weekly — whatever it is, most guys have some hobby that seems more appropriate for college students. And they will be really into it, having a permanent email thread full of ish-talking with their hobby buddies, that they check during work, or during date night.

HIS SENSITIVITY
Your just-dumped friend is at your apartment, crying her eyes out and telling you the whole story of her breakup. After you say all the right things, assure her that the guy is the one missing out, and that he probably just couldn’t handle what a wonderful woman she is, your boyfriend chimes in, “He might have just met somebody else.

HIS PRIORITIES
It’s Sunday morning and your guy is gearing up to go watch football all day with his buddies. But wait…wasn’t there some networking event he was invited to this morning? Of course you want to tell him that his career should come before football and partying!

Kim Kardashian's Step-Dad "Bruce Jenner" Was Not Invited To Kim's Birthday/Proposal Surprise Party


According to TMZ, Bruce Jenner was NOT invited to AT&T Park when Kanye West popped the question to Kim Kardashian ... in fact, he had no idea his step-daughter was getting engaged until AFTER the fact. Family sources stated that Bruce and Kanye have never had a "real conversation." As was previously reported, Bruce was not happy when Kim hooked up with Kanye so quickly after she left Kris Humphries.

We're told Kanye is the one who planned every detail of the surprise proposal. We do not know exactly why Bruce was not invited -- whether it was because of Kanye or because of Bruce's separation from Kris. We do know ... Bruce didn't even know Kanye was popping the question until he got a call from Kim immediately after she got engaged. We're told Bruce was Kim's first call, because Kim considers him to be her father.

Rihanna Kicked Out of Abu Dhabi Mosque For Instagramming...


One of Instagram’s biggest sharers, Rihanna, posted a slue of pics to her IG account of an impromptu photo shoot in front of an Abu Dhabi mosque. The photos were shot by photographers Steven Gomillion and Dennis Leupold. Although sporting the required attire covering her and her lady bits from hair to toe, some fans saw the showy shoot (one photo, pictured above, was posted with the caption “B*itch stole my look”) in front of the place of worship disrespectful. Mosque officials eventually asked Rih Rih to leave the mosque for taking “pictures that do not conform with the conditions and regulations put in place,” they said in a released statement condemning the singer’s photo shoot.

Whether it was disrespectful or not is debatable, and fans have definitely been going back and forth about it. But the other argument is her lack of restraint and judgement from a compulsion to over-share her life. Maybe if Rihanna had snapped a curt photo or two to chronicle the memory, share with fans, and move on to entering the actual mosque (she never went in), the response might not have been so severe. Or if she’d even coordinated taking the photos with mosque officials for permission, they might have complied at the prospect of enticing her followers to one day visit the Abu Dhabi mosque. But the self-imposed, 11 photo event outside the place of worship before even entering the mosque made the singer seem too preoccupied with her celebrity than absorbing the culture.

Spider Bite Causes Man To Almost Lose His Leg.


I'm officially scared of spiders #justsaying...An Essex decorator nearly lost his leg after being bitten by a false widow spider. Ricki Whitmore encountered a nest of the venomous arachnids while working at a school. He told The Daily Star: "They were quite big, a purplish brown colour with strange markings on their backs. I'd never seen anything like it. It was quite creepy. I'd never kill a spider but I needed access to the corner so I just swept them away." The spiders are related to the black widow, but do not have the distinctive red spot on their backs. They make similar "tangle" webs, which are full of eggs, making it likely for many spiders to be in the same small area.

Whitmore was bitten on the leg but didn't go to seek medical help until a day later. Shortly after being prescribed antibiotics, the 39-year-old was rushed to hospital where surgeons found so much poison in his system he faced amputation of his leg. Thankfully the limb has been saved - though Whitmore is unable to work and is staying with family members to avoid distressing his children. Each day he is visited by a nurse who cleans and dresses his wounds and six months of physiotherapy are on the cards before he is expected to walk again.

Mass Evacuations In India Over Impending "Super Cyclone" Blast.

Nearly 600,000 people have fled to storm shelters after Indian authorities issued a red alert and warned of major damage when one of the largest cyclones the country has ever seen bore down on its east coast Saturday. Officials canceled holy day celebrations and stockpiled emergency supplies in coastal Orissa and Andhra Pradesh states, with forecasters saying Cyclone Phailin, is expected to affect 12 million people. Fears have been sparked after a deadly super-cyclone in 1999 killed more than 10,000 people in Orissa. "This is one of the largest evacuations undertaken in India," said Shashidhar Reddy, vice chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority, who estimated that more than 440,000 people had been evacuated. But the size of the storm made extensive damage to property more likely, he told Reuters news agency. "Our priority is to minimise loss of life." CONTINUE

Bela's Corner: When Out On A Date With Your Spouse, Who Is To Pay For Dinner?

Hello y'all, I'm back again with my questions...When it comes to dating, men are still expected to pick up the check even in 2013. Well, this question led to a serious debate as to who is to pay when a guy take a girl out. Some guys insisted that a girl should pay for at least 2 date nights out of 5. Personally, I think it's absurd to expect a girl to pay for dinner. If she offers to pay, that's different, but if you are expecting her to pay for dinner, then you are less than a man *simple*. And it's usually the broke guys that expect a girl to pay for dinner *BME*. What do y'all think? Should a girl be expected to pay for dinner on a date? Continue to see the research on this topic....

Ibori's Case: UK Court Orders A Retrial Based On Lack Of Enough Evidence...

You can say what you want o but i have sha forgiven my ex-governor...Yesterday, a retrial was ordered at a United Kingdom court based on the assets confiscation case against former Governor James Ibori of Delta State to enable the prosecution gather enough evidence. The London Metropolitan Police which is prosecuting the former governor had admitted in open court on the last day of the hearing that they lacked enough evidence to support allegations of fraud, corruption and money laundering against Ibori. The trial judge, Mr Anthony Pitts, therefore granted the Crown Prosecution’s request and adjourned for a retrial after both the prosecution and defence have made their final submissions in the hearing which was supposed to end yesterday. Reacting to Judge Anthony Pitts’ judgment, James Ibori said “after eight years of criminal investigations, five adjournments and over 50 trips to Nigeria, the prosecution failed to provide any tangible evidence to support their claim that I defrauded Delta State.

UKBA:Government Ends Free NHS Services To Migrants And Foreign Students...


As part of the ways to reduce the influx of migrants into the UK, the border agency is putting up new policys that ensures that foreigners will have to prove that they are entitled to be in the country before they are given access to GPs and hospitals, while foreign students will have to make a “contribution”of up to £200 to the health service. The measure will form the centrepiece of tough new legislation designed to reduce numbers entering the country and put pressure on illegal immigrants to leave. A senior government source said it was an attempt to target “people who have no right to be here”. Restricting access to the NHS is highly contentious politically. GPs will be told they have to check that people seeking to register with them are here legally and issue only time-limited “NHS numbers” — the proof of entitlement to free care — to those who do not have a permanent right to be in the country.

Prince Harry Is Set To Marry Cressida Bonas...Next Year

According to a report on the UK's Telegrapha wedding is reportedly "in the cards" for the red-headed royal, now that his girlfriend Cressida Bonas has put her fears of marrying into the royal family to rest. The publication reported one of the stunning model's friends told them "Cressie is going to marry Harry," adding that their wedding is "likely to take place next year." Prince Harry has made it no secret that he is ready to settle down, telling Katie Couric last year in the ABC special The Jubilee Queen, "I've longed for kids since I was very, very young...so I'm just waiting to find the right person, someone who's willing to take on the job." Perhaps the right girl is Bonas. While neither Prince Harry or his ladylove have commented on their relationship, the couple has been spotted out and about quite a bit recently, with the prince taking Bonas to aJames Blunt concert and out to watch a musical performance of the Book of Mormon in London just last week. Do you think Cressida is the right girl for Prince Harry?

Bela's Corner: What Would You Do If Your Spouse Calls Out His/Her Ex's Name Whilst Making Out With You


Yes, I'm back again with all my funny questions *bme*...Anyway, while i was viewing Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse" yesterday, there was this disturbing scene where "Leslie" was in bed with her newly wedded husband "Richard" but in the height of the moment mentioned her ex "Joseph" name. She actually apologized for it but the husband was still angry over the incident. Do you recon that the husband was overacting or the lady crossed the line with that? Would you forgive your partner if they mistakenly call you their ex's name?

Update: Death Toll Rises To 232 "African Migrants Died After The Boat Carrying 500 Passengers To Italy Capsizes"...


via NYDAILYNEWS
The Struggle is real..At least 232 people died and scores were missing after a boat packed with up to 500 African migrants sank off the southern Italian island of Lampedusa on Thursday, the coast guard said. Bodies fished from the water were laid out along the quayside as the death toll rose in what looked like one of the worst disasters to hit the perilous route for migrants seeking to reach Europe from Africa. “It’s horrific, like a cemetery, they are still bringing them out,” Lampedusa Mayor Giusi Nicolini told reporters. The Associated Press has the current death toll at 94. Italian coast guard officials said 150 survivors had been rescued so far of the between 400 and 500 migrants thought to be on the 20-metre (66 ft) boat that caught fire and sank about 1 km (half a mile) off the island. The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said it believed there were around 500 passengers, all Eritreans who had boarded in Libya. Almost 500 people were reported dead or missing making the crossing from Tunisia to Italy last year, the UNHCR says. Numbers have been boosted by thousands of refugees from the civil war in Syria.
