WHITE HOUSE NO SMOKING ZONE FOR OBAMA

U.S. President-elect Barack Obama failed to give a straight answer when asked Sunday whether he had managed to quit smoking. In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC’s Barbara Walters. Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, “Have you stopped smoking?” “I have,” Obama replied, smiling broadly. “What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon.” “Wait a minute,” Brokaw interjected, “that means you haven’t stopped.” “Fair enough,” Obama said. “What I would say is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier. You will not see any violations of these rules in the White House.”

VICK BURNED THROUGH MONEY BEFORE INCARCERATION

Michael Vick

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned that Michael Vick spent $201,840 of his money in the hours before beginning what would be a nearly two-year prison sentence for his role in a dogfighting ring. “The day he went to jail, Michael Vick bought a $99,000 Mercedes. He cashed four checks that totaled $24,900. He gave $28,000 to the mother of his oldest child. He paid a public relations firm $23,000 and gave a friend $16,000,” the newspaper reported. The day’s spending, in fact, was but a small part of the $18.2 million that flew out of Vick’s hands from 2006 to 2008, according to documents filed recently in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Norfolk, Va. Vick, 28, is currently seeking the court’s protection from his creditors. They are particularly interested in his increased spending in the three months before he reported for jail. The documents reveal that Vick chose to handle most of his business in cash. In 2007, documents show he used cashier’s checks to withdraw $908,500 from his bank accounts. During a two-year period, he wrote checks payable to “cash” totaling almost $1.1 million. His spending escalated as his prison sentence neared.

MOTOWN GONE WILD

Berry Gordy, Jr. will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his Motown record label over the next two years with archival releases, documentaries and even a Broadway musical in the works. The industry veteran, who founded Motown with an $800 loan from his family on Jan. 12, 1959, tells Billboard.com, “I’ve been fighting to protect the legacy for 50 years, and now it seems that after 50 years we can go and talk about the real deal, what really happened … and how it happened, my story and everything that goes with it. And I’m just thrilled that I’m here to enjoy now what I couldn’t enjoy while I was doing it.” The official Motown 50th celebration kicks off tomorrow (Dec. 9) with the release of “Motown: The Complete No. 1’s,” a 10-disc set housed in a package designed to look like the company’s original Hitsville U.S.A. headquarters in Detroit. Gordy and former Motown employee Suzanne DePasse, a 1983 Emmy winner for the Motown 25th anniversary TV special, are also producing a documentary about the company that’s due to premiere in September.
