It was a sad New Year’s Eve for those who loved Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star James Avery. He died at the age of 68 in Glendale Tuesday night of complications from open heart surgery. James Avery was best known as Uncle Phil on the NBC sitcom. Plans are being made for a memorial service. The guy who played Carlton – Alfonso Ribeiro tweeted ‘I’m deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away. He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly.
Unfortunately – some people like to take advantage of others when they are vulnerable. like this tweet from ‘Will Smith’. .
This sceen shot and tweet went out..’. R.I.P. Uncle Phil. All you real Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans out there… DON’T STOP #retweeting THIS.
Well – its not Will. and its not NBC. And about 128-thsnd people retweeted it.
Jada did post this on her facebook page. ”Happy New Year everyone!’ she began. ‘I was hoping to start the new year differently but we have lost yet another friend. James Avery who we all lovingly know as Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince has passed. ‘Our condolences to aunt Florence (his mother), Miss Barbara (his wife) and all those who loved him. Rest in peace James.’
The bachelor is back this Sunday. First time with a latino-man. His name is Juan Pablo Galavis and he has blue eyes, he is handsome, was a former pro-soccer player – and he is a dead beat dad. On the official Bachelor bio it says that he resigned from his professional soccer career when he found out he was going to be a dad. But the Enquirer has uncovered court documents that show the hottie was ordered by a judge to pay back child support in May 2011 – more than two years after his daughter was born! Juan Pablo has been hoping that news of his court-ordered child support didn’t get out because he doesn’t want ‘Bachelor’ fans finding out he’s not the perfect father he portrays himself to be’.
Rob Kardashian is not feeling very Kardashian lately. He wasn’t in the family Christmas card, he wasn’t at his moms Christmas eve party… insider say he is fed up with being left out – and is looking for a clean break from his famous and successful sisters. Apparently he has been living in Florida – and has no plans to come back to Cali. This last year was tough for him – big break up with a girlfriend, he gained 40-lbs, launched a sock line but with little or no support from his family. Hard to compete when Kim and Kanye get engaged and have a baby and Kris and Bruce getting divorced. “Rob feels like his family can’t see anything beyond the spotlight. But he wants more for himself than fame.” Still not sure he is genuine about this – or its a plot line for the family reality show.
Katherine Jackson has pulled the plug on her campaign to solicit money from Michael Jackson fans to pay for an MJ documentary. The question — Where did the money go? TMZ broke the story last week … Katherine — along with Paris, Blanket and Prince – made an online plea to Michael’s fans to contribute money so she could license songs and images from the MJ Estate for a documentary she wanted to make. Here’s the thing. The estate was never contacted about licensing anything, and they probably wouldn’t anyway. Also – the website Katherine used allows her to keep the funds if the project is never made. And this is money contributed by the fans!! TMZ posted a story about how this whole thing smelled of a major scam – and not long after that Katherine and her people pulled the plug on the thing. Now they say the every penny has been returned to the fans – but that has not been confirmed. Unfortunately – Katherine is a sweet woman with good intentions. But there are people around her who are not so sweet and have bad intentions and this is probably what happened.
