Autopsy for Dr.Donda West inconclusive, discovery channel pulls Dr. Jan Adams show.

Dr.Jan Adams

The Los Angeles County Coroner has said that preliminary results indicate that Dr. West died from either the surgery or the anesthesia, but the results were inconclusive.

The official cause of Dr. West’s death will not be known for six to eight weeks, pending further toxicology tests.

The State Medical Board of California launched an investigation into Dr. Adams’ practice because of three DUI convictions since 1994.

About his show on the discovery channel….

The Discovery Health channel has pulled the top rated show Plastic Surgery: Before and After which featured Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon that operated on Kanye West’s mother Dr. Donda West.

Dr. Adams hosted the popular Plastic Surgery show for five years until last June, but reruns were airing on the network, including four that were supposed to air this week.

Dr. Adams has also been completely removed from Discovery’s website as well.

Dr. Jan Adams issued a statement…

I want to first express my deepest condolences to the West family at a very difficult time. As a medical doctor practicing in this field, I hold sacred the bond of confidentiality that exists between the patient and doctor. Out of respect of the West family, and the absence of verifiable information, any comment without having first discussing that information with the family would be unprofessional.

Marbury threatens Isiah Thomas???

Posted by Media Outrage on November 14, 2007

Marburry

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.”

Juanita Bynum did not lose her house!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 14, 2007

Juanita Bynum

The AJC reported last month that Juanita Bynum did pay her past due taxes of $32,007.56. We reported that a lien had been put on the property and that if the entire balance was not paid on the $4.5 million 23.6 acre compound then it would be put up for auction on Nov. 6.

Well great news even though we are mad late reporting it, but we wanted to report it because we don’t like to just report the downside of a situation especially if the situation has been resolved. And we do really like Prophetess Juanita Bynum. Oh back to the great news, Juanita did pay $38,904.15 and the house did not go up for auction to our knowledge. Here is what took place….

Bynum said her lawyers had applied for a tax exemption on the property, but the deadline for the property taxes came before the paperwork was complete. The pastor said she had put $5,000 down on the tax bill earlier but was advised by her attorneys not to pay the full bill until the exemption came through.

Weeks ago Bynum provided a copy of a receipt to reporters that showed $38,904.15 had been paid on the account.

The word of God tells me my integrity shall preserve my inheritance,” Bynum said. “I am not going to lose anything.

About the tax-exemption….

Still Barnard said he doubts Bynum qualifies for an exemption. He said he has discussed Bynum’s appeal for a tax exemption with the Georgia Department of Revenue and he does not believe that her compound should get one because it does not have a congregation and it is not open to the general public.

Halle Berry’s baby’s father doesn’t want to live with her!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 14, 2007

Halle Berry

We are learning that Gabriel Aubry who is Halle Berry’s baby’s father, has no plans of moving to L.A. to live with the actress while they raise their child. He instead wants to remain in NY and pursue his own modeling career.

A source says, “She’s been shocked by the news. Halle had always assumed Gabriel would move to the west coast so they could live together as one happy family. If Gabriel stays in New York, it’ll mean long separations. She knows their relationship won’t survive and has been begging him to change his mind.

The source adds, “Halle hardly knew her own dad and they were still estranged at the time of his death, so she’s desperate for her daughter to have a father she sees regularly.”

NAACP wants State Rep Carla Dartez out of office for calling black woman buckweat!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 14, 2007

Carla Dartez

A white state lawmaker in a runoff election called a black civil-rights veteran who had helped her campaign “Buckwheat,” prompting the NAACP to urge voters to kick her out of office.

Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez, a Democrat, acknowledged that she ended a Thursday night conversation with Hazel Boykin by saying, “Talk to you later, Buckwheat.” Dartez had been thanking Boykin for driving voters to the polls.

Buckwheat, a black child character in the “Little Rascals” comedies of the 1930s and ’40s, is viewed as a racial stereotype.

Boykin, 75, helped desegregate restaurants and the parish school system in the 1960s. Her son, Jerome, is president of the Terrebonne Parish chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

I’ve never had no one talk to me that way and I considered it a racial slur,” Hazel Boykin said. “I know the meaning of it, it’s just like the N-word.”

Yep that woman is definitely a racist. She needs to be thrown out of office immediately. Their is no way in the world that you make a comment like that and not realize what you are saying. I’m just wondering what her medicine cabinet looks like.

Gabrielle Union, Nia Long, and Sanaa Lathan discuss the internet gossip blogs!!!

Posted by Media Outrage on November 14, 2007

Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Gabrielle Union

Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, and Gabrielle Union spoke very candidly to Essence about the gossip blogsThey are georgous! You couldn’t have found a better cover.  Three beautiful black women. Here are some excerpts…

Essence: How do you deal with the 24-hours-a-day gossip that comes out on the Internet?

Gabrielle: Just last week somebody gave me a baby. This isn’t Perez Hilton or the White gossip people, these are women of color, specifically Black women who, for whatever reason, don’t like the company I keep.

Sanaa: She’s talking about the gossip sites.

Essence: The blogs.

Sanaa: That are run by Black women.

Gabrielle: And now because everyone is clamoring for celebrity tidbits, the bigger gossip sites and even mainstream entities are picking up on it. No fact-checking, no nothing. And in one week’s time, there were like five different dudes, a baby—I’m a homewrecker. In literally seven days. I can’t point the finger at the White media. They don’t care about us. Paparazzi are not staked out in front of any of our houses. They are not going through our garbage because they don’t care about us in that way. So when you hear crap about us, it is coming from our own community, which hurts.

Nia: We are some of the few Black actresses whose passions are rooted in our community.

Gabrielle: There is this idea that there is integrity in journalism; if it’s written it has to be true. But that’s not the case. When blogs or any of the magazines get it wrong, there’s no accountability. In the next breath, they’ll complain on the blogs that we don’t have enough Black stars. Well, you rip us to shreds every two seconds from our nose to the weave to the clothes to the shoes to the ashy ankles.
