Guess he decided that he only had time for “Half-a-tan”. He get’s 5 FV tickets, and an all expense paid trip to Hollywood tan to finish tanning the bottom half of his body.

Recipe of the day: Filipino Lumpia

 

Image

FILIPINO LUMPIA:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 pound ground pork

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup minced carrots

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon soy sauce

30 lumpia wrappers

2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked pork, carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.

Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

 

Are “Wedding Bells” in future plans for Kim Kardashian???

ImageIn recent reports, Kim Kardashian has been seen around with mega rapper Kanye West. They’ve confirmed that they are indeed a couple, and per Kim, “I can’t even think about being with anyone else than the man I’m with”.

Although Kim hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to men in the past, she says, “It’s so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you’re going through (referring to Kanye). It’s good to be aware that he doesn’t want anything from me too, because he understands the business (mentioning her 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries)”.

The next time around, Kim plans to have a more intimate (non televised) ceremony on an island with just her close friends & family.

They have only been dating since the Spring of 2012. Is it a little too soon to be thinking of marriage and a baby? Who knows, maybe they’ll be the next Jay Z & Beyonce. How about baby  KimYe West to play with Blue Ivy Carter!!!  Kanye, what are your thoughts?

Update: American Idol “Pop Diva Drama” continues…

 

ImageThough the attempts of the shows producers to try and quickly downplay the situation by claiming this season they have acquired & invested in the best judges, they released a statement to “Access Hollywood” saying, “Despite all the accusations and media speculation– much of which is inaccurate– the production is going extremely well today, and judges are focused on finding the best talent here in Baton Rouge.” –End statement.

Drama continues to spiral out of control as Mariah Carey had an interview on “The View” with Barbara Walters regarding the incident stating, “Carey also said that  although Nicki still hasn’t apologized, but have “expressed love for her”, she’s hired extra security for her (Carey) protection.

An infuriated Nicki Minaj shot back at Mariah via a barrage of tweets, writing, “I don’t call TMZ n Barbara Walters cuz I stand on my own two feet. Never needed an army. God is good. Insecurity is as cruel as the grave.”– “I guess it hurts 2 have the producers tell u to ur face that Nicki is the best judge we’ve had since Simon. Awww, poor u. Keep them lies cmn”.–  “Tried to keep quiet but let’s go!!!… I thought we resolved it yesterday but I see u want ur pity party to continue, so I’m bout to po dot tea.” –end quote.

Some people in Hollywood, CA (i.e Steven Tyler & Cee Lo Green), are saying that the fight was staged just to boost the shows ratings, but the leaked video footage was not recorded by that of the studio nor production staff, but by an individual using their personal cell phone.

So whether the fight was staged to boost ratings or not, let’s just hope that no one looses their life behind it.

American Idol diva troubles: Pop Diva’s Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj at odds…

ImageWho’d have thunk that 2 of the biggest pop diva’s placed on the same show, doing the same job, wanting the same attention, and 2 of the very same EGO’s, would ever butt heads?!? Oh let’s say just about every single person who watches American Idol who got the news that Minaj was signing on the show to be a judge. Production stopped for one day earlier this week because of an explosive altercation between Mariah & Nicki. We all knew that it would be a matter of time, before the two Uber divas has a clash of the titans, we just didn’t know it’d be this soon. Let’s see; Carey has a plethora of Grammy’s & over 20+ yrs in the industry. Minaj is a young rapper turned pop star who has the whole world singing her catchy hooks & choruses, while taking over Barbieworld. Although they both have multiple personality disorders in common, Carey’s not having it! There’s only room enough for one “Split-personality having” Supreme Diva on A.I., and it’s not Minaj. Here’s some leaked footage of Minaj getting fed up with Carey’s snobby “All-hail-the-queen-I’m-better-than-you-because-I-have-so-many-Grammy’s-and-my-resume-looks-better-than-yours” attitude! Minaj threaten’s to end Carey’s life if she says one more disrespectful thing, and told producers that she will walk off the show before she spends one more day with Queen Mariah Carey.

Let’s take a vote:
