Katt Williams is making news once again – but NOT for getting arrested!
Instead, the trouble-making comedian is agreeing with Mayor Vincent Gray, who said earlier this week, the moniker “Redskins” for Washington’s professional football team should maybe be changed.
“Do you know how racist that is?” Katt said to TMZ of the name. “That would be like saying the Chinese Yellowskins or the Compton Blackskins.
“Can you please not keep disrespecting the people we already admit we did wrong to?”
Do you agree? Are the Washington REDSKINS offensive to Native Americans?Yes, More >
No, this isn’t something out of children’s book or animated TV show. A zebra really did chase a pony through the parking lot of a nondescript strip mall in Staten Island.
Zachary Osher of Metropolitan Drape & Blind summed it up best.
“I was sitting at my desk at about 9:20 when I saw a zebra and pony run back and forth across the street, almost getting hit by a car,” he told the Staten Island Advance.
Osher grabbed his iPhone and started recording the zebra and pony sprinting through the lot. The two eventually made it onto a main road, dodging traffic asMore >
It appears safe to say this participant in the 110-meter hurdles in the Chinese University Games won’t be going to the Olympics. Lolo Jones, he is not.
- Number of hurdles actually cleared in the event: None.
- Number of f–ks given: None.
- Number of competitors bested: Surprisingly not all! If you thought failing to jump would give you an advantage in this race, you’d be wrong!
Watch this epic Chinese “hurdler” do his thing below …

Hope Solo of the U.S. soccer team says that the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing were filled with drinking, revelry and sex … off the field of course.
Before she packs her bags to head to London for the 2012 Olympics next week, the star revealed some sizzling secrets from the 2008 Beijing games.
Solo failed a drug test recently but was let off with a warning and will compete in London. She told the newest issue of ESPN The Magazine:
After topping Brazil 1-0 to take the gold, the post-match celebration was so raucous that they were still drunk during an interview the next morning.

Sad animal news today. Yoda, a Chinese crested-Chihuahua mix and the reigning winner of the World’s Ugliest Dog crown, has passed away. She was 15.
Yoda earned the prestigious award in June 2011 at the Sonoma-Marin Fair in California. For her dogged (BOO!) pursuit of the honor, Yoda won $1,000!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or something …
R.I.P. YODA: A dog so ugly, it’s downright adorable!
In an email to the Hanford Sentinel, Yoda’s owner Terry Schumacher writes, “Say a prayer today 4 my YODA… She passed away last night in her sleep.”

Joan Rivers is not known for mincing words, but she took it to a new level after the 2012 Oscars, describing Angelina Jolie in some very controversial terms.
Most were in good fun, but Fashion Police star Rivers tore her a new one.
“Angelina Jolie looked like a fool the way she posed,” Rivers said.
“She took herself right out of that superstar category because you now realize she stands inMore >
Paula Deen is on a vacation … and going to TOWN on a burger!
The Food Network star, who recently revealed she has type 2 diabetes, was photographed eating a burger and fries Monday on a Caribbean cruise ship with her fans.
This story is not likely to douse that fire.
While diabetes isn’t a sentence to life without burgers, eating a healthy diet is one way to manage it … which makes Deen’s admission all the more baffling toMore >
LeAnn Rimes is becoming known as much for fired up Tweets about her weight as she is for her music. Well, maybe not quite, but you see our point.
The wife of Eddie Cibrian furiously took to the social media site to berate a fellow diner who caught the couple eating at a Chicago restaurant Friday.
Here’s what she wrote, obviously irate:
“How dare someone come to me at a table w/ the boys & tell me I need to eat something. What is wrong with people!? AS I’m stuffing my face… just have another drink and maybe take a class in manners! Cheers!”
Like Kate Middleton, people love to obsess overMore >
Vanessa Hudgens showed up on the red carpet for the premiere of Sucker Punch without a date last night – she is single, after all – but not without her sense of fashion.
The event took place at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, as young actresses from across Hollywood showed up to help promote a thriller that features Hudgens, Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone and others.
Emma Roberts was also on hand, looking sharp. Below, we’re asking fans to contrast this Scream 4 star with the former High School Musical student…
The Alexander McQueen dress Michelle Obama wore to the White House State Dinner for the Republic of China marked another fashion risk for the First Lady.
But was it one that hit or missed?
Dressed in a red petal print silk organza gown, Michelle was both fashionably bold and diplomatic, as the brilliant red is a symbol of luck in Chinese culture:
Despite a visiting Chinese President and an A-list guest list, all eyes were on the First Lady, whose impact on the global fashion industry has been unrivaled.

It’s a special Holly Day for a certain, often-naked reality star.
Holly Madison turns 31 today, likely celebrating the occasion by giving thanks that she’s no longer having intercourse with a man old enough to be her grandfather.
A failed Dancing with the Stars contestant, Madison has turned her penchant for nudity into a series with E!. This would be slightly more impressive if that network didn’t hand out reality shows like they were Chinese food menus.
Still, Holly has worked her way up from humble beginnings in Oregon to being named the top Hooters girl of all-time by that restaurantMore >
So much for that warm reunion between Lindsay and Michael Lohan.
Back at her L.A. apartment for the day before heading back to rehab in Palm Springs, Lindsay had security officers at her building remove her estranged dad.
Michael showed up, unannounced, in the lobby of Lindsay’s apartment building late last week. Security called LiLo and she told them to send MiLo packing.
So much for Michael and Lindsay Lohan burying the hatchet. Dude’s gotta learn about boundaries … and discretion. [Photos: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

[HMG] – When their favorite suspense series closed on May 23rd, many of its 12-million addicts felt just like the show – Lost. The networks have all tried to claim a successor, but critics say NBC may just be right.
On Tuesday the folks at the Peacock debuted a mini-series called ‘Persons Unknown’ that is scheduled to last the whole Summer. And, unlike ‘Lost’ the makers of this show swear there will be answers to the upcoming riddles.
The concept is less twisted than Lost: A group of people with no common bond are all kidnapped. In one case a mother out walking with her daughter is renderedMore >
