Fun Weekend

A Master Card Wedding
This is a true story about a recent wedding that took place at Clemson University . It was in the local newspaper and even Jay Leno mentioned it. It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests. After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage with a microphone to talk to the crowd. He said he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception. As a token of his deep appreciation he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift just from him. So taped to the bottom of everyone's chair, including the wedding party was an envelope.
He said this was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open their envelope. Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 glossy of his bride having sex with the best man. The groom had gotten suspicious of them weeks earlier and had hired a private detective to tail them. After just standing there, just watching the guests' reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said, 'F---you!' Then he turned to his bride and said, 'F--- you!' Then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said, 'I'm outta here.'He had the marriage annulled first thing in the morning.
While most people would have canceled the wedding immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with the charade, as if nothing were wrong. His revenge making the bride's parents pay over $32,000 for a 300-guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing the bride's and best man's reputations in front of 300 friends and family members.

This guy has balls the size of church bells.Do you think we might get a MasterCard 'priceless' commercial out of this?Elegant wedding reception for 300 family members and friends: $32,000.Wedding photographs commemorating the Occasion: $3,000Deluxe two-week honeymoon accommodations in Maui : $8,500.The look on everyone's face when they see the 8x10 glossy of the bride humping the best man: Priceless.There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's MASTERCARD A Mastercard Wedding 'Life isn't like a bowl of cherries or peaches, it's more like a jar of Jalapenos--what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow......'

Halle Berry on her relationship with the father of her unborn child:
“I’ll never marry again. I have a good healthy love for myself and love in my life. I no longer feel the need to be someone’s wife and I don’t need to validation of a marriage certificate. Gabriel’s a wonderful person and I’m just happy I’ve found someone really special to have a baby with. In a way I feel more married than I ever felt in two marriages. Gabriel and I have decided to redefine marriage for ourselves.”

Snoop Dogg speaks on the perception of women in Hip-Hop:
I seen that sh*t! Bullsh*t! The woman is perceived the way…she is perceived. It is what it is, man. You gotta look at what hip-hop is. Hip-hop is not the stories. It’s not a soap opera. Hip-hop is not ‘The View.’ It’s not…’The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ Hip-hop is what it is. We have our certain views on women the way we do. It’s like Playboy. Do anybody got something to say about the way Playboy view women? They take their shirt off and show their t**ties. That’s the first way to get into Playboy. You gotta show Hugh Heffner your t**ties if you wanna get in Playboy. There’s nothing degrading about that, but at the same time, when we show women in videos, they have their clothes on. We don’t play videos on BET with women naked; we can’t get away with that. But it’s degrading what we’re doing, when in actuality, we’re giving these women a chance to shine. Now, if these women would become directors and depict women in a different light, then that would give them a different light as far as the way people view them. A male director is gonna direct it the way he feels. He’s gonna make it the way a woman looks sexy.
Look at this for example. How many ugly women selling records? None! Only the pretty ones sell records. Beyonce, Mary J, Keyshia Cole, the ugly ones don’t sell. I ain’t gon say no names, but they don’t sell records. They just be singing their little hearts out, but they don’t get no sales, cause they ugly. Now, that’s my fault? I can see this on TV now: ‘Snoop Dogg called me, ugly.’ You beautiful on the inside, baby. What I wanna say to go on top of that, to the chocolate women, the dark-skinned women, I love ya’ll. I got a chocolate daughter at home. I always tell her chocolate is the best thing in the world. Don’t think that light skin is in, chocolate ain’t never went nowhere. Black is beautiful. I love dark-skinned women. That’s why my videos be having dark women in them. I always used to have light-skinned women. Look at it. Show them one of my videos.

Aretha Franklin might lose her house:
An attorney’s mistake caused Aretha Franklin’s $700,000 mansion in Detroit to slip into foreclosure over $445 in 2005 taxes and late fees. But Aretha Franklin, who owes a total of $19,192 in back taxes on the property through 2007, said she plans to pay up and reclaim it by the March 31 deadline.
“It was a mere oversight on my attorney’s part to notify me. It will be taken care of immediately and thank you for making me aware of it.”
Franklin risked losing a 1927 Detroit mansion to tax collectors over $162 in 2005 taxes and $283 in interest and fees. The foreclosure judgment was entered earlier this month, and records show Franklin owes $18,746 in back taxes and fees for the 2006 and 2007 tax years, but foreclosure proceedings on those debts wouldn’t begin until next year.

World's richest women
1. Liliane Bettencourt
At the grand age of 83, Ms Bettencourt is the wealthiest woman in the world and the richest in France according to Forbes, sitting at 15th richest overall. She inherited her $16 billion (£8.4 billion) fortune through her family's firm, L'Oreal. She is the daughter of L'Oreal founder Eugene Schueller and retains a controlling stake in the cosmetics giant so is likely to get richer still. Because she's worth it.
2. Christy Walton
Christy, 51, is the widow of John Walton, the Wal-Mart heir who died when his ultralight aircraft crashed in June 2005. She and her son Luke inherited $15.9 billion (£8.4 billion) from the company originally founded by Sam Walton, who opened his first store in 1962 and took it public in 1970. Wal-Mart is still the world's largest retailer with more than 5,100 stores serving 138 million customers a week and ringing up sales of $285 billion (£151 billion). All of which makes Christy the 17th richest person in the world.
3. Alice Walton
As you would expect with the Waltons, family ties run deep. Alice, 56, is the sister of the late John Walton and her fortune of $15.7 billion (£8.3 billion) puts her at number 20 in the world's rich list. Brother Rob serves as chairman and the company donates a small fortune to charity via the Walton Family Foundation.
4. Helen Walton
The third Walton to feature here, 86-year-old Alice is the mother of John Walton and the widow of Sam. Her $15.6 billion (£8.2 billion) fortune makes her the 24th richest person in the world.
5. Abigail Johnson
The 28th richest person in the world, Abigail's $12.5 billion (£6.6 billion) - and growing - inheritance comes from Fidelity Investments, America's largest mutual fund company. The firm was founded by her grandfather in 1946. Abby, 44, interned at Fidelity while pursuing a Harvard MBA and returned full-time in1988. She became president of the company's mutual fund division in 2001, dodged the taint of corruption during a scandal in 2003 and picked up $31 billion (£16.4 billion) in fund assets during her first six months as competitors withered. In May 2006 she took over Fidelity’s employer services division, administering payroll and employee stock plans. Busy girl.
6. and 7. Barbara Cox Anthony and Anne Cox Chambers
Barbara, 82, and Anne, 86, inherited $12.4 billion (£6.6 billion) each from the family's media firm Cox Enterprises. Dad James Cox's empire includes 17 newspapers, 15 TV stations, 79 radio stations and also cable systems. As if that wasn't enough, the business also runs to cars, including Manheim Auctions, America’s leading used-car auction business and majority ownership of, the world's largest online auto classifieds site. Last year the family took cable arm Cox Communications private in an $8 billion (£4.2 billion) deal. They are the world's 28th richest people.
8. Jacqueline Mars
9. Susanne Klatten
More inherited money in ninth place as Ms Klatten, 43, scooped up $8.1 billion (£4.3 billion) via a 12.5% stake in BMW cars and a 50% stake in pharmaceutical manufacturer Altana from her late father, Herbert Quandt. A trained economist with an MBA, Klatten is credited with helping transform Altana into a world-class pharmaceutical/chemical corporation with $3.6 billion (£1.9 billion) in sales and almost 11,000 employees.
10. Cristina Green
Mrs Green may derive some of her wealth from husband Philip's retail empire, Arcadia, but I bet she's earned it. And as the only Brit in the top 10 richest women and the only one with self-made cash, she deserves our applause. Their $7 billion (£3.7 billion) fortune makes the Greens the 74 richest people in the world and they like to protect their cash from the taxman by living in Monaco. Arcadia Group is Britain's third-largest clothing retail group and includes high street favourites Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Miss Selfridge. Green also owns 94% of BHS, the country's 10th-largest clothing retail chain. Together, the companies have sales of $4.7 billion (£2.5 billion).

Hope you're having a fab weekend?
