We have to give Hilary Rodham Clinton her props. In spite of the odds, she’s found a way to hang in there. In the latest example, the Democratic presidential hopeful got a much-needed win Tuesday by beating front running candidate, Illinois Senator Barack Obama in the Pennsylvania primary. Even though her victory was predicted, the New York senator is still behind the proverbial 8 ball in her efforts to catch and pass Obama in the race to win the most committed delegates for the upcoming Democratic convention this August in Denver. “Some counted me out and said to drop out,” Clinton told cheering supporters who packed a hotel ballroom in downtown Philadelphia. “But the American people don’t quit. And they deserve a president who doesn’t quit either.” Clinton won the state with a 10 percent point margin, adding strength to her argument that she is better placed to win big, populous states that Democrats will need in November’s general election against Republican John McCain.


It’s been a staple of gossip mags and blogs for months now and it looks like it’s finally happened.
Star Jones Reynolds is divorcing Al Reynolds, her husband of three years. According to Entertainment Tonight, Jones, 46, filed divorce papers March 26 in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan. The papers are reportedly sealed. In a statement to “Entertainment Tonight,” Jones wrote: Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. A month ago I filed for divorce. “The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone’s life that requires privacy with one’s thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman.”


Janet Jackson is in the throws of preparing a major world tour to promote her new album “Discipline,” but she’ll take a break on Saturday to receive an honor from one of the biggest gay/lesbian rights groups in the country. Ellen DeGeneres has been tapped by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) to present its Vanguard Award to the 41-year-old star during its 19th Annual Media Awards at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre. Past recipients include Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer Aniston, Whoopi Goldberg, Antonio Banderas and Liza Minnelli. When asked by E! Online why she feels the organization has chosen her for the award, she replied: “I think it’s because of the work I have done related to AIDS, and also just the support that I’ve given them throughout the years. I’m excited.” Jackson, who will launch her “Discipline” tour on September 11th, discussed all things gay with E! in an extensive interview.


Soul singer Al Wilson, best known for his 1973 No. 1 hit “Show and Tell,” died Monday of kidney failure at a hospital in Southern Calif., according to reports. He was 68. Wilson died in a hospital in Fontana, a city about 50 miles east of Los Angeles, said the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. A native of Meridian, Miss., Wilson was 12 when he began his musical career singing in the church choir and leading his own quartet. In high school, he moved with his family to San Bernardino, Calif., where he worked as a mailman, janitor and office clerk while teaching himself to play drums. After high school, he toured with the group Johnny Harris and the Statesmen before joining the Navy and singing with an enlisted men’s chorus. After two years in the service, Wilson relocated to Los Angeles and began working the local nightclub circuits before joining several R&B vocal groups: first The Jewels, then The Rollers and eventually instrumental combo The Souls. In 1966, Wilson signed to the Soul City label and two years later had his first hit, “The Snake.” Several minor hits followed, including Do What You Gotta Do,” his cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Lodi” and Rivers’ own “Poor Side Of Town.” “Show and Tell” spent one week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hit 100 singles chart in January 1974. The romantic ballad was written and produced by songwriter Jerry Fuller, and first recorded by Johnny Mathis.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced.

1954: Hank Aaron hit his first home run off pitcher Vic Raschi of the St. Loius Cardinals on this date, his first year in the big leagues. It signaled the beginning of what would become Aaron’s duel with a legend. Aaron finished his 19th season with 673 home runs and stands just 41 short of the record set by the home run king, Babe Ruth.
