Jennifer Hudson’s brother-in-law, William Balfour has been found guilty of murdering her mother, brother and nephew and faces life in jail. The tragedy, which occurred in 2008, has finally been brought to a close with Hudson and her sister Julia releasing a statement saying that God will eventually forgive Balfour. It reads; “We have felt the love and support from people all over the world and we’re very grateful. We want to extend a prayer from the Hudson family to the Balfour family. We have all suffered terrible loss in this tragedy. It is our prayer that the Lord will forgive Mr Balfour of these heinous acts and bring his heart in to repentance someday.”
Who knew that new mother Jessica Simpson was doing so well in the business world? Despite spectacularly failing in the music industry, she has raked in a massive one billion dollar revenue from her fashion line. Alas, the fact she can wipe her backside with fifty dollar bills doesn’t seem quite enough and Jessica has apparently sold the first pictures of new baby Maxwell to People Magazine for $800,000 dollars! I suppose the fact that the magazine paid J-Lo $6 million for snaps of her twins and $11 million to Brad and Angie for shots of Vivienne and Knox does pale in comparison to Jessica’s fee. But hey, she’s a billionaire, I’m sure she really doesn’t care!
It seems new squeaky clean, ‘morally right’ reality show, The Voice UK has been blighted with criticism by singer Paloma Faith, who made an appearance on the programme herself. Paloma was drafted in at the battle round stages, joining ‘old friend’ Danny O’Donoghue in mentoring his acts. Paloma has now come forward to admit the pair never knew each other previous to the show and that the BBC edited out most of her comments. She told a publication; “They said we were friends but we had never met before. The opportunity came through them contacting my people, who said, ‘Do you want to do it?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, but can I say what I really feel?’ But they just edited it out. I think I was maybe a bit too realistic.” She continued on to say; “I was doing a lot of talking about how you shouldn’t really worry about this and I don’t really believe in competing in art because it’s subjective, so some people think you’re amazing but some people won’t – all that kind of normal human stuff that they don’t promote on that show.” I really think the moral of the story here is that Danny should head out and start making some actual friends; how embarrassing!
