Barack Obama’s 85-year-old grandmother Madelyn Payne Dunham broke her hip recently and is “gravely ill,” her brother told the Associated Press Tuesday. Dunham, who goes by the nickname Toot, “has not been well for a long time. Then she fell and broke her hip fairly recently,” Charles Payne said in a telephone interview from his home in Chicago. “She’s unhappy with the condition that she’s in, I can tell you that.” Obama said he will suspend his presidential campaign on Thursday and Friday to visit his grandmother, and Payne, Obama’s great-uncle, is planning to fly there for her 86th birthday, which is Sunday.

NOTE: By the way, the Wall Street Journal reports today that Senator Barack Obama has opened a double-digit nation wide lead over his Republican chanllenger, Senator John McCain.

Age ain’t nothing but a number to Mariah Carey. She was 20 years younger than her first husband, music mogul Tommy Mottola, and is a decade older than her current spouse Nick Cannon. Carey, 38, married the entertainer in April following a six-week whirlwind romance. But the decision was not entirely without consideration of the age difference. When asked if she ever had second thoughts about Cannon being 10 years younger, she told WENN: “You know what, I did. But he doesn’t act like it (younger) — he’s really very intelligent. He’s a very business-minded person, but he’s also a lot of fun so you don’t really think about those things. It is what it is. “I’ve been with someone older and that could be a disaster or maybe you have to throw that side away and don’t think about it — think about who’s right for you.”
Carey and Mottola split in 1998 after five years of marriage.


Robert Johnson, Bobcats Owner

Robert Johnson, Bobcats Owner

Bob Johnson says he will hang on to his struggling Charlotte Bobcats no matter how bad the economy gets. Johnson, the first black majority owner of a major professional sports team, paid $300 million for the expansion franchise four years ago, and has laid off nearly 40 employees in the past month to save money, reports The Associated Press. Also, three top executives have left the organization. But the founder of Black Entertainment Television said he has no intention of unloading the team, and will spend whatever it takes to get the Bobcats to the playoffs for the first time.
