President Obama

President Obama

Tennessee Democratic legislators are expressing outrage over a racist e-mail about President Barack Obama that was sent by a state employee who works for a Republican lawmaker.
The e-mail from Sherri Goforth, a white legislative aide for Sen. Diane Black, was sent on May 28 to other staff for Republican senators. It shows portraits of the nation’s 44 presidents, but Obama is depicted as a black box with only a pair of cartoonish white eyes visible. (To see it, scroll down and watch video.)

Black went on a media blitz Monday, telling CNN and other outlets that Goforth received a verbal and written reprimand as required in such situations, but would not be fired. She said Goforth had made “a bad decision” but would not be disciplined further because she understands the gravity of sending insensitive e-mails.

“This correspondence was done without my knowledge, and it does not reflect my views,” Black told Monday. “It really doesn’t matter to me why it was sent — whether it was a mistake or a decision — it won’t be tolerated.”

Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester said Monday he thought Goforth ought to be fired.

“I am calling on Sen. Black to reject this racist smear and fire this staffer who, on state government time, on state government computers, using a state government email account, launched this bigoted attack on our president,” Forrester said in a statement.

Rep. John DeBerry, the chairman of the Tennessee Black Caucus of State Legislators, said Goforth’s e-mail reflects poorly on Tennessee and lawmakers. He said such incidents hinder race relations.

“It’s unfortunate, and it’s another in a series of unfortunate incidents that have happened across this country with this president,” he said. “It sends the wrong message from the state of Tennessee, and it sends the wrong message from the House and Senate. I wish it hadn’t happened.”


The Kiss

The Kiss

In a week that has seen David Letterman and Al Roker accused of disrespecting women, Jamie Foxx has decided it’s best to answer critics who say his kiss with Halle Berry at a recent awards show was disrespectful to the actress’ boyfriend.
Foxx tells WENN that the whole thing was actually her idea.

“It was a joke,” he said. “First, I want to let everybody know that I respect Halle Berry and I respect her relationship. But after she won the Oscar, Adrien Brody came up and laid a little tongue on her. So she decided to get me back, which I didn’t mind at all.”

And the Oscar winner admits he was so nervous before pulling Berry’s prank, he nearly backed out at the last second.

“I almost froze but I said, ‘Think quick Foxx,’ and I got into it … she really gave it to me and I appreciate that.”




Retired NFL star Michael Strahan has quietly been engaged to Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole since May 22, which was also the day that his upcoming TV show, “Brothers,” was picked up by FOX.

“It was a pretty great day,” Strahan’s manager tells People exclusively.

While the two were on a beach in the Bahamas, Strahan, 37, got down on bended knee and handed her a canary yellow and white diamond ring.

“I have a great relationship and she’s a great girl,” says Strahan, who is a father of four. “I don’t like to talk much about my private life, but I’m really happy.”

Murphy, who has five children with her ex, wouldn’t comment about the plans for her future with Strahan. But he says that though they’ve talked about it, “There aren’t any plans for kids… We’ve got nine between us already.”

A wedding date has yet to be set, according to Strahan’s manager.

FOX, meanwhile, is eying mid-September for its series premiere of “Brothers,” a sitcom in which Strahan plays a former NFL star dealing with post-gridiron life. Strahan will co-star with Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, CCH Pounder and Carl Weathers.




Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth and the family of the pedestrian he is charged with hitting and killing with his car have reached a financial agreement to avoid a lawsuit.
A person close to the settlement negotiations on Tuesday told The Associated Press that the amount of the agreement was confidential. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the settlement.

Attorneys say Stallworth will plead guilty today (June 17) in Miami to DUI manslaughter in the death of Mario Reyes.

Stallworth, 28, is accused of striking Reyes with his Bentley while returning from a night out in Miami Beach in March.

He had a blood-alcohol level of .126 after the crash, well above Florida’s .08 limit.



It began with a carefully-planned promo sent via Mariah Carey’s Twitter page yesterday morning.

“The 1st single from my new album ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’ is called ‘Obsessed’ and will be at radio next Tuesday,” she tweeted. “I’m a lil’ exc … Seriously, this is one of my favorite songs ever. I love the whole album. I’m completely immersed in it. I can’t wait for you to hear it. LY.”

And with that, a press release sent out Monday officially announced the Aug. 25 release of “Memoirs” and yesterday’s official radio delivery of first single “Obsessed,” written and produced by Mariah, The-Dream and Tricky Stewart, who are responsible for the majority of tracks on the new album. Brett Ratner is due to direct the video.

With the assistance of Auto-Tune, Carey appears to be targeting Eminem in the song. The rapper instigated a beef with Carey and her husband Nick Cannon with his “Relapse” song “Bagpipes From Baghdad.”

In “Bagpipes,” Eminem rapped, “Mariah, what ever happened to us, why did we have to break up… Nick Cannon better back the f*** up. I’m not playing, I want her back, you punk.”

Mariah’s response? “You’re delusional, boy, you’re losing your mind. It must be weed, it must be the E… Why are you so obsessed with me? Lying that you’re sexing me.”

Carey adds some more barbs, like “Telling the world how much you miss me, but we never were so why you trippin’” and provoking the rapper with “You’re a mom & pop, I’m a corporation. I’m a press conference, you’re a conversation.”
