Gov. David Patterson

Gov. David Patterson

Gov. David Paterson found nothing funny about a “Saturday Night Live” segment that made fun of his blindness and portrayed him as befuddled and disoriented. During the skit on “Weekend Update,” cast member Fred Armisen mimicked the New York governor’s raspy voice and wandering eye while discussing his criteria for filling Hillary Clinton’s senate seat. “I can take a joke, but only 37 percent of disabled people are working, and I’m afraid that kind of third-grade humor certainly adds to this atmosphere,” Paterson told reporters. “Let’s just say I don’t think it helped.” In the skit, Armisen says he has three criteria for choosing a senator: economic experience, upstate influence and someone who has a disability and is unprepared for the job — like himself. He holds up a chart illustrating job losses in the state upside down.


Don King

Don King

Boxing promoter Don King is raving over President George W. Bush’s cat-like reflexes as he dodged two shoes hurled at his face by an Iraqi journalist during a press conference Sunday in Baghdad. “Bush has unbelievable reflexes … he can stick and move like a boxer!” King told The famous promoter, who is currently in the middle of a charity event in Florida, called President Bush’s duck-and-move maneuver, “Aggression but with protection.” Meanwhile, “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd was more concerned with the people paid to protect the president. On Monday’s show, she said the Secret Service agents who allowed two shoes to be tossed before taking action better be in “human resources” soon getting their last paycheck, and “nowhere near Barack Obama” after the President-elect is sworn in.
Meanwhile Muntadar al-Zeidi, the 29-year-old Iraqi reporter who threw his shoes at the president, was being held for questioning by the Iraqi prime minister’s guards Monday afternoon. According to reports, he was being interrogated over whether anybody paid him to throw his shoes at Bush during the press conference and was being tested for alcohol and drugs.


Flash Richardson

Flash Richardson

Harlem Globetrotters member Chris “Flash” Richardson died in his sleep Wednesday while the team was on tour in Japan. He was 28. A cause of death has yet to be determined, said Globetrotters spokesman Brett Meister. The players were appearing at a U.S. military base in Sasebo, Japan, as part of an annual holiday tour when Richardson’s death occurred. The 6-foot-7, Corpus Christi, Texas native played basketball at UNLV and joined the Globetrotters shortly after his college career ended. He was known for his dunking skills and a genial disposition, according to Meister. “He was a great Globetrotter on and off the court. He just had a very engaging smile that would light up the room,” Meister said. Funeral plans were incomplete at press time, but team officials said the memorial service would take place in Corpus Christi. Richardson’s survivors include his mother.


Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson is claiming that “Renee,” the rumored lovechild of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge, is “considering writing a tell all to clear the air.” The gossip site says “an insider” told them: “There’s so much that nobody knows about what went on in Renee’s life … She wants to come clean about everything that she’s been through.” While the source refused to confirm whether or not Renee was actually Jackson’s daughter, MediaTakeOut quotes her as saying: “After the book comes out everyone will know the truth.” In 2005, James DeBarge’s brother, Young Debarge, told New York’s Hot 97 that Janet and his brother – married in 1984 – were parents of “Renee,” a daughter the couple secretly sent to live with Janet’s elder sister, Rebbie. “Her birth was top secret,” Young said of Renee, now 21. “James and the Jackson family kept everything real close, real tight. No one really knew how it was working out until things kind of surfaced.” Jackson denied the claims, stating in Nov. 2005: “I do not have a child and all allegations saying so are false.”
