30,000 Wisconsin Public Workers Fight For Their Rights; House Dems Walk Out

Posted by on Feb 17, 2011 in Politics | 1 comment

Wisconsin Protest Governor Walker 200x300 30,000 Wisconsin Public Workers Fight For Their Rights; House Dems Walk Out The Conservative horns are showing, as Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, tries to strip the bargaining rights of public workers like teachers and nurses in order to “balance” the state budget. Stripping public workers of bargaining rights has nothing to do with balancing the budget. This is just an attempt to win back rights for corporate cronies who really will create a slave system as they are in cahoots with the government against the people and their rights to be represented. Republicans act like they care about jobs and government spending, but what they really want to do is put power in hands of corporations and top tier earners, so that everyday people are limited in rights and power. Therefore the control of wealth and government lies in the hands of the rich and not the working or middle class. What this ultimately means is that if you are not an owner, you will work for what the corporation feels is fair. Without collective bargaining Conservatives can strip away minimum wage, overtime compensation, child labor laws, equal opportunity hiring, health and hazardous rights, pensions, employee health care, 401K contributions, and unemployment benefits. They call these things “socialism,” but if the people are powerless against corporations and greed through government, it then becomes¬† modern day slavery or a fascist state.

Posted by on Feb 17, 2011 in Celebrity BFFs, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos, Celebrity Sightings, Celebrity Twitter | 5 comments

Kelly Rowland is the newest celebrity to tweet her tattoo experience, well actually BFF Lala Vasquez tweeted the pic while supporting Kelly Rowland.¬† Unlike some of the recent tattoos, Kelly Rowland decided to keep it simple (remember Gucci Mane’s) and in English (remember Rihanna’s) for her first tattoo celebrating her 30th birthday. I wonder do they all have a pack to get tatted after 30 (remember Brandy’s).

Anyway, check out Kelly Rowland’s first tattoo, which should remind us all that we should be our loudest cheerleader. My mama always said,¬† “You can’t love others without first learning to love yourself.”

Dear MrsGrapevine: Royce Reed & Basket Wives Drama For All Star Weekend

Posted by on Feb 17, 2011 in Celebrity Beef, Celebrity BFFs, Celebrity Drama, Celebrity News, Juicy Gossip, TV Shows | 12 comments

MrsGrapevine.com has exclusively learned that there really is some beef and tension between Basketball Wives cast members. So perhaps some of what we see on reality TV is real. Anyway Royce Reed is hosting a party during All Star Weekend in Los Angeles, and we just learned that Shaunie O’Neal, Gloria Govan, Evelyn Lozada, and Jennifer Williams have been banned from attending any events associated with Royce Reed or her reps. Tensions are so high between the cast mates that anyone who is beefing with Royce will not even be allowed on the guest list, and something tells me if Evelyn and Jennifer try to crash this party, access will be denied with a lot of drama.
