Kerry Washington and her fine self stepped out to the premiere of “Miracle at St. Anna” last night in NYC looking her usual elegant foxy self. Wesley Snipes, Swizz Beatz, Derek Luke, Spike Lee, Paula Patton, Isiah Thomas, and a few others also attended the premiere. One of our readers (Terrence) vehemently objected to the notion that Kerry Washington and Sanaa Lathan are better actresses than Halle Berry. His view is Halle has played in way more roles and is a veteran actress that really can’t be compared to ones that have yet to accomplish what she has or play the vast amount of different roles that she has. What’s your take on it?

The sexual harassment suit against Isiah Thomas and Madison Square Garden has been settled. Terms of the settlement were not immediately disclosed.“I am extremely pleased that we have reached a settlement,” Anucha Browne Sanders said in a statement. “The jury’s verdict in this case sent a powerful and enduring message that harassment and retaliation at Madison Square Garden will not be tolerated. … It has been a long journey, but I believe that justice has been done.”
The case was supposed to resume this week before U.S. District Judge Gerard E. Lynch, who was set to decide how much Browne Sanders was owed in compensatory damages, a payout that usually involves lost wages and future loss of income. The Knicks also faced the possibility they might be ordered to pay what was likely to be millions of dollars in legal fees.
By settling, the Knicks avoided paying her legal fees, while Brown Sanders gets her money faster and avoids the possibility of having her award reduced on appeal.
Although Browne Sanders had demanded the right to resume working for the Knicks, one of her lawyers, Kevin Mintzer, said she will continue working at the University of Buffalo
as an associate athletic director and senior woman administrator.
Mintzer refused to divulge the amount of the settlement, as did representatives for MSG and Thomas.
“As I have said before, I am completely innocent,” Thomas said. “This decision doesn’t change that. However, this is the best course for Madison Square Garden, and I fully support it.“
“We don’t feel any less strongly than we did throughout the entire episode,” MSG said in a statement. “The outcome was a travesty of justice, and we vehemently disagree with the jury’s decision, however, at the strong request of (the NBA commissioner) and in the interest of focusing on basketball, we can all agree that it is time for us to move on and put this issue behind us.”
LMAO! These cats refuse to admit any guilt whatsoever. Keep on cussin while you cut that check…

Sources close to the Knick organization have disclosed what sounds like a threat towards Isiah Thomas from star point guard Stephon Marburry. Marburry did not play in last night’s game against Phoenix and instead jumped on a plane and flew back to NY.
But on the way to Phoenix on the team plane the source discloses this…
Upon hearing that he would back up second-year guard Mardy Collins, Marbury marched toward the front of the plane to meet with Thomas. Five minutes later, an enraged Marbury told his teammates that if he wasn’t starting he wouldn’t suit up for the game. But it was something else Marbury said that stunned his teammates in the back of the luxury plane.
“Isiah has to start me,” Marbury fumed, according to the source. “I‘ve got so much (stuff) on Isiah and he knows it. He thinks he can (get) me. But I’ll (get) him first. You have no idea what I know.”
Thomas downplayed the public rift….
“It seems like he and I kinda go through this every November,” Thomas said. “And then a couple of weeks go by and we kinda kiss and make up and we get back to the business of trying to win basketball games. Hopefully, in the next couple of days this will be resolved.”

Yesterday the jury found Isiah Thomas guilty of Sexual Harrasment. Today the jury awarded Anucha Browne Sanders even more than she had originally wanted from The Knicks $11.5 million! She originally wanted $10million to resolve this case but the Knicks organization said (Heck No! let’s take this to trial she wont get a dime!) no. Well looks like they weren’t listening to Dionne Warick’s psychic channel.
“Honestly, my head never left basketball. This is what I’ve done. This is what I do and this is what I think about the majority of the time,” Thomas said after the Knicks’ second day of training camp.
Thomas said a day after the verdict that he wasn’t worried about losing his job and didn’t even talk with the team about the trial before practice.
We know what Isiah and the gang at Madison Square Garden were thinking after loosing this case (Damn get Ms. Lewinsky on the phone and see if she wants to take a position here. Tell her not to worry about not having experience…she already has the kind of experience that we’re looking for…cause this bull ish will never happen again…where’s all these female rap groupies when you need them???)

A jury ruled Tuesday that New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas sexually harassed a former top team executive, subjecting her to unwanted advances and a barrage of verbal insults, but also ruled he does not have to pay punitive damages.
After an ugly, three-week trial, the ruling gives Thomas a partial victory in the $10 million lawsuit filed by Anucha Browne Sanders.
The jury did find that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and ruled that she is entitled to punitive damages from MSG.
Browne Sanders, fired from her $260,000 a year job in 2006, sued Thomas and Madison Square Garden. Her case presented the Garden as “Animal House” in sneakers, a place where nepotism, sexism, crude remarks and crass language were part of the culture.
The case, from its inception, proved a public relations disaster for the Knicks and the Garden, with intense coverage of the three-week trial focusing on its tawdriest aspects — star guard Stephon Marbury having sex with an intern outside a strip club, raunchy come-ons from a Marbury cousin to his Garden co-workers, Thomas’ videotaped remarks about the racial dynamics of calling a woman “a bitch.” Does Benzino sit on the board of the Knicks???
