A Day Late and A Milli Short for ABC

Posted by Bossip Staff

ABC missed out on a million dollar payday to air Obama’s commercial according to Livesteez:

A half-hour Barack Obama campaign ad will blanket the major broadcast networks Wednesday night – except for ABC. ABC tried to reach an agreement with the Obama campaign to air the commercial on a different night in an attempt to protect its struggling Wednesday lineup, according to people familiar with the discussions who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly. ABC had a change of heart, but by the time it decided to make the 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday slot available for the Democratic presidential candidate’s spot, his campaign had already finalized the ad buy, the source said. ABC will air an episode of the hourlong “Pushing Daisies” at that time as scheduled, according to The Associated Press. The Obama campaign bought time on CBS, NBC and Fox for $1 million per network. In Fox’s case, the ad will precede the resumption of rain-suspended Game 5 of the World Series in Philadelphia. Fox decided to pre-empt its World Series pre-game show for the Obama spot and will start its baseball coverage after the commercial’s 8:30 p.m. conclusion. The 30-minute spot, which was announced in early October, will air six days before the election between Obama and Republican candidate John McCain. It is also scheduled to run on Univision, BET, MSNBC and TV One.

If there is one thing that television networks can count on, it’s that America will be watching Barack Obama. We really wish we could have been there when they were deciding between airing Obama’s commercial or showing “Pushing Dasies.” SMH

New Jawn: Jamie Foxx ft. T.I. “Just Like Me”

Posted by Bossip Staff

jamie foxx

Earlier this month Jamie spoke to Britain’s “The Independent Newspaper” about the inspiration for his third studio album. He says new disc ‘Man’s Intuition’ was inspired by his frustration about understanding what the opposite sex really wants.

“On my radio show I have this panel of beautiful women and they were talking about how men with a lot of money aren’t all that. But if a guy has no money, that’s no good either. So I was thinking, ‘What does a woman want?’ We go from there and build the story and the songs.”

William Balfour May Have Had Help

Posted by Bossip Staff

This deranged looking felon doesn’t have many friends, but cops are still trying to figure out if it was indeed him and whether or not someone assisted him in these heinous killings:

Although Chicago police have only one known suspect in the slayings of three relatives of actress Jennifer Hudson, some evidence suggests that more than one person may have been involved, law-enforcement sources said today. Investigators have focused on suspect William Balfour’s movements on Friday, the day of the murders, as well as his conflicts with his estranged wife, Julia Hudson, and other members of the family. They are trying to determine whether another person drove Balfour to the West Side after the killings at the Hudsons’ South Side home, sources said. Witnesses said Balfour drove his teal Chrysler to the Hudsons’ block Friday, arriving about 7 a.m. But later the vehicle was discovered by police parked about a mile away outside Robeson High School. Balfour’s girlfriend told police that he was at her West Side home not long after the slayings of Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, and the Oscar-winning actress’ brother, Jason, at their Englewood home, sources said. Security video at the South Side high school showed someone parking the Chrysler on Friday, but investigators have not been able to determine the person’s identity from the images, the sources said. A time stamp on the video showed the car was left there at 12:30 p.m. Friday, but it was unclear whether the stamp was accurate, sources said. Meanwhile, cell phone records placed Balfour on the West Side at that hour, sources said. If the time stamp is accurate, it would suggest another person may have driven the Chrysler from the Hudson home to Robeson, sources said. In any event, Balfour did not use his own car to travel from the Hudson’s Englewood house to his girlfriend’s home near 19th Street and Spaulding Avenue on the West Side, police said.

Convincing someone to help murder a child is unreal. Who ever did this should be boiled alive.

Someone We Actually Like

Posted by Bossip Staff

The next First Lady already has a transcending beauty about her that doesn’t require a $150,000 wardrobe. She was recently on Jay Leno talking fashion among other things:

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, , made a guest appearance on Jay Leno Monday, and the talk show host didn’t waste any time mentioning the recent controversy surrounding Sarah Palin’s lavish wardrobe. Questioned by Leno, the potential first lady declined to criticize GOP vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin about revelations that the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 at Neiman Marcus and other high-end retailers on clothes and accessories for Palin and her family, according to The Associated Press. “Actually, this is a J. Crew ensemble,” she told comedian Jay Leno. She wore a yellow sweater, skirt and blouse ensemble. “You can get some good stuff online,” she added. Obama said she and her husband have a policy of spending their own money on their clothes. But she said she wanted to be “empathetic.” “A V.P. pick, it’s like being shot out of a cannon. All of a sudden you’re at the center of attention, and you want to look good,” said Michelle Obama, adding she has never met Palin. “You’re living in your home, minding your business, and all of a sudden you’re on the national stage and everyone’s watching.”

What a classy first lady we will have. Pale-in would not respond remotely as tactfully as Michelle did. You know they would have been handing out flyers, blasting emails, and running commercials if Michelle had spent that kind of money on anything.

Alleged Hudson Killer Missed Parole Meeting Day of Murders, Julia Hudson Blogs

Posted by Bossip Staff

Some new details have emerged in the Hudson murder case:

Records also show that Balfour missed a meeting with his parole agent on Friday, the day Hudson’s mother and brother were murdered and her 7-year-old nephew went missing. Reached by phone that afternoon, he told the agent he was “baby-sitting on the West Side of Chicago,” according to the documents, obtained by The Associated Press.

The agent said he thought he heard a child in the background during the call.

Hudson’s nephew, Julian King, was found shot to death in the back of an SUV on Chicago’s West Side on Monday. Julian and his mother, Julia Hudson, shared a home with Hudson’s mother, 57-year-old Darnell Donerson, and brother, 29-year-old Jason Hudson, who also died of gunshot wounds.

He seems more and more suspect as more details come out. Isn’t it time to for us to go to war on the glorification of “Thug Life” in our culture?

F*ck a thug. Jhud and her family are in our hearts and prayers.

Here is what Julia Hudson posted on her Myspace today:

“LETS SEE IM 29 YEARS OLD I HAVE ONE CHILD AND I’M ALWAYS BORED, I LOVE TO HAVE FUN EVEN START A LITTLE S*** HERE AND THEIR i HAVE TWO YOUNGER SIBLINGS MY SISTER IS JENNIFER HUDSON YES THE JENNIFER HUDSON AND MY BROTHER IS JASON,

I GUESS IT’S TIME TO UPDATE THIS WHEN I STARTED MY MYSPACE ALL OF THE ABOVE WAS TRUE , NOW BECAUSE I CHOSE TO DO WHAT WAS NATURAL TO ME AND LOVE SOMEONE , IT COST ME MY BEAUTIFUL FAMILY MY WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL LOVING SUPPORTING MOTHER DARNELL, MY TRUE BLUE BABY

He Comes From a Line of Murderers

Posted by Bossip Staff

More details of this heinous tragedy come to the surface:

William Balfour — the “person of interest” in the murders of Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew — isn’t the first Balfour to run afoul of the law. Balfour’s father is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence for murder. His brother served time for drug dealing. Balfour himself has served time for attempted murder and carjacking. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Balfour was a member of the Gangster Disciple Street Gang. Also according to court docs, Balfour told the judge back in 1999 he had a good relationship with his mother until “she gets an attitude.”

People aren’t randomly murdered execution style. Since William was involved with some unscrupulous low lives, he probably owed them money or drugs and when he didn’t pay up, they went after his son who happened to be with his grandmother and uncle. When the truth of the matter finally comes out, the story will likely be something to that effect.
