According to AFP,  Former US first lady Nancy Reagan is “slowly” recovering from a fall a few weeks ago which left her with fractured ribs, her spokeswoman said Wednesday.

 

The 90-year-old widow of president Ronald Reagan canceled her attendance at an event at the Reagan Library in California on Tuesday evening because doctors her advised her against it, said spokeswoman Joanne Drake.

 

“Weeks ago Mrs. Reagan took a fall at home and fractured a number of ribs,” she told AFP.

 

“She has been recovering slowly and has been adding a few appointments back on to her schedule, but was advised by her doctor not to try and attend large events too far from home just yet.

 

“She personally invited Congressman Paul Ryan to speak at the Reagan Library and really wanted to be there, but sent her apologies to him early yesterday,” she said in an email.

 

The fall occurred at Reagan’s home in Bel Air, just outside Los Angeles in March, CNN reported. The Reagan Library is in Simi Valley, an hour or so north of the city.

 

Nancy Reagan appears in public relatively rarely. Last year she laid a wreath for her husband at the Presidential Library on the 100th anniversary of his birthday in February.

According to Yahoo News / The Lookout,  Torika Watters 16, Newly crowned beauty queen in Fiji, who sparked an outcry because of her mixed heritage, was asked to give up her title because of her age, not her race, according to pageant officials.

Torika Watters, was chosen last month to represent Fiji in the Miss World contest. The pageant drew the likes of supermodel Rachel Hunter, who was a judge.

But after Watters won the title, she faced heavy backlash because of her mixed European/Fijian descent, and some said she did not look Fijian enough.

Hundreds of derogatory comments had to be deleted from the Miss World Fiji Facebook page, according to reports.

Watters had to step down because she did not meet the minimum age requirement of 17, Miss World Fiji pageant director Andhy Blake told the Fiji Times. Koini Vakaloloma, 24, the first runner-up, will take her place at the Miss World competition in Inner Mongolia in August.

Watters issued a statement saying that she had been approached by Blake to be in the contest and at the time expressed concerns about the age requirement. Blake told her she was still eligible. “I had no intentions of doing anything sneaky or wrong and like the other contestants entered the competition for what I believed to be the right reasons—to be an Ambassador for Fiji and raise money for charitable causes,” she wrote.

She went on to say: “I am proud of my identity as a Fijian and have never considered my people as racists.” She is not challenging the decision and has chosen to walk away.

Blake confirmed that he was under the impression Watters could compete, but was told later by organizers that contestants had to be at least one month away from turning 17 by the start of the pageant.

A posting on the Miss World Fiji 2012 Facebook site says, “Please be informed despite media reports—Miss Torika Watters was never stripped of her title. We wish her well in her future endeavors and offer an apology to her, her beautiful family and friends for any distress this competition would have brought upon her! She will always be the very 1st Miss World Fiji!!”

Watters is eligible next year for the pageant, according to Blake, if she chooses to compete again.

One month after delivering her second son, the singer brought him out for a mini show and tell with the Hong Kong media

 

Hong Kong singer Kelly Chen, brought her two sons along for her interview with famous Hong Kong radio and TV host Cha Xiao Xin yesterday. This is the first time Kelly is putting her newborn Riley Lau, in the spotlight although he slept through the interview.
The 39-year-old singer shared that her eldest son, Chace Lau is aware that he is now an elder brother. He affectionately refers himself as “elder brother Chace Lau” and never fails to greet Riley after he comes home from school every day, the actress shared.

18 days after giving birth to Riley, the singer was spotted attending a musical with her family despite it being her confinement period. Kelly expressed that she “wanted to be there for Chace” as it was his first musical and explained that it was her attempt to treat her sons equally..

Basking in the joy of having two sons, Kelly says she’s not planning for a baby girl anytime soon and prefers to “leave it all to fate”. The mother of two is also in no hurry to regain her figure and shared that she consumes “chicken, fish and soup” on a daily basis to recover from her pregnancy.

She has no plans to hold a birthday party for Riley’s first month and hopes to enjoy a simple meal and celebrate with her family instead. The proud mother shared that it was her attempt to show that she is fair in treating both of her sons.

Madonna May Be Charged For Speaking Out On Gay Rights In Russia

Blogged By: De De Tillman

Posted: Friday March 23, 2012 @ 4:43 p.m PST

According to ABC News,  Pop singer Madonna has ignited controversy on both sides of a new anti-gay law in St Petersburg, Russia.

The Material Girl said in a  Facebook posting this week that she plans to speak out against the law during an Aug. 9 concert in the city.

“I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels oppressed,” Madonna wrote on Wednesday.

“I don’t run away from adversity. I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity,” she added.

The law, which took effect March 11, in part prohibits “the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia among minors.”

Gay rights activists say it would criminalize even reading, writing or speaking about gay, lesbian, or transgender people. Violations can carry hefty fines, ranging from about $170 for individuals up to $16,700 or organizations and businesses.

The bill’s author, city assemblyman Vitaly Milanov, says he wants Madonna charged under the new law if she speaks out against it during her concert. He said he was willing to attend the show “to control its moral content.”

“I’m ready to personally suffer a couple of hours of her concert,” he told the Russian Interfax news agency.

Madonna spoke out after an  op-ed by Masha Gessen, a Moscow-based Russian-American journalist, was published in the New York Times on Monday calling on Madonna to cancel the show and urging tourists and businesses to boycott the city.

For some gay rights advocates her pledge to use the venue to denounce the new law was not enough.

A group of Russian gay rights advocates plans to picket the concert, saying Madonna is cashing in on their struggle and urging her to cancel the show.

“The law will stay in force, Madonna will leave and the Russian LGBT-community will be humiliated even more,” Nikolai Aleksev, the head of the LGBT  advocacy group Gay Russia,  wrote on his blog.

Homosexuality was banned in the Soviet Union and was only decriminalized in 1993, though it was still declared a mental disorder until 1999. It remains highly taboo in Russia.

Laws similar to the St Petersburg legislation are now being considered in other regions and the speaker of the Russian Parliament, the Duma, has promised to weigh endorsing it at a national level.

Link: Yoochun (JYJ) Father’s Funeral Plus Jaejoong & Junsu Pallbearers (Photos & Video Link)

Where was TVXQ Yunho and Changmin at JYJ’s Yoochun father’s funeral? Is Yunho and Changmin on tour and under a mandatory contract which would prevent them from attending Yoochun’s father’s funeral? Did S.M. Entertainment company didn’t allow them to attend? Shouldn’t they have been pallbearer along with Junsu?

If they were there then where were they? Were they photographed or filmed?

If Yunho & Changmin were unable to attend, then have they made arrangements to spend time with Yoochun. Have Yunho and Changmin reached out to him by speaking to him personally not through management?

Yoochun was completely out of it, the pain and heartache was shown on his face and if Yunho and Changmin were available, this doesn’t look good for them?

Fans are hurting and crying over TVXQ the five original members and this only hurts more not seeing Yunho and Changmin at Yoochun’s highly publicized father’s funeral.

Yunho and Changmin seem to be avoiding getting Twitter accounts, for one thing, Jaejoong, Yoochun, and Junsu are on there. JYJ is very easy to get in touch with. Yunho and Changmin were asked about getting Twitter accounts by Arab fans and Yunho replied “We will find other ways to connect with fans”.

If Yunho and Changmin have not contacted Yoochun, why haven’t they?

Recently,Changmin lost his grandmother, has Yoochun, Jaejoong, and Junsu contacted him for their condolences?

Fans know Yunho is hurt, they can’t help but to see the pain in his face and eyes,especially, when he hears the fans chanting “Kim Jaejoong’s” name.

Jaejoong has made efforts to reunite with Yunho, he tweeted out for Yunho to check his messages; however, Yunho said he didn’t receive the messages because they changed their numbers plus he ignored a lot of messages due to prank calls.

Also, Jaejoong said he took flight out right after a concert in Japan  to meet with Yunho that was arranged through a friend  but Yunho didn’t show up and Jaejoong said he didn’t have any sleep.

Hopefully, this unfortunate situation will bring them back together as five, at least get back on speaking terms.  This is going on the third year of no communication among Jaejoong, Yooochun, Junsu, Yunho, and Changmin is really nonsense. Life is too short.

PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS?  THANKS
