Omarosa Sues La Toya Jackson Over Michael Clarke Duncan Death Comments

The wacky but always lovable La Toya Jackson is now officially duking it out with reality show villain public enemy number one: Omarosa Manigault. But Michael Jackson’s older sister may have brought the wrath on herself.

Omarosa is planning to bring a lawsuit against Jackson for the “false, vicious and defamatory” comments that La Toya made about Manigault having a hand the death of her fiancé, Michael Clarke Duncan.

The war of words all went down on Sunday night’s episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. La Toya Jackson got fired by Donald Trump and had this to say about Omarosa and Duncan after she was given her reality show walking papers for the second time. “She’s a conniving, scheming, cut-throat, probably pulled the cord on Michael Duncan Clarke … and I thought Mr. Trump was falling for that fake cry. Such a lie!”

Omarosa has since been silent on the matter but sent in her lawyers to respond and officially comment on the hurtful dig.

“La Toya Jackson’s statement on the March 17, 2013 episode of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, that the Reverend Omarosa Manigault caused her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan to die, is false, vicious and defamatory,” Omarosa’s attorney told

“… It is because of [Omarosa’s] bravery that Mr. Duncan — the love of Rev. Manigault’s life — was able to live for months beyond that tragic night. Mr. Duncan passed away from natural causes,” the attorney continued.

“… It is repulsive and of the lowest level of class for Ms. Jackson, who showed herself to be a ’sore loser’ in making these disgusting statements in the wake of Rev. Manigault’s tragic loss,” said Omarosa’s attorney. Her counsel also added that they are currently pursuing legal action against Jackson.

“As [Omarosa’s] counsel, we have been directed to pursue these defamatory statements to the fullest extent of the law with La Toya Jackson….”

Yikes! Sounds like La Toya better lawyer up too.

Donald Trump Isn’t Racist; He Picked Arsenio Hall

Oh boy. Donald Trump’s racism is  showing again. Or is it?

Since Mitt Romney has clinched the Republican nomination to run against President Obama, Trump has thrown his support behind the candidate by retreading the tired birther issue… and this time he has proof his motivations aren’t racist.

Speaking to the North Carolina Republican Convention, he explained that his motivation in proving that President Obama was not born in the US is not about the president’s skin color.

“Somebody said, ‘Oh, because I brought up the birth certificate,’” said Trump. “’I’m a racist.’ I said, ‘How can I be a racist, I just picked Arsenio Hall.”

A laughable response, in the same racist vein as, “Some of my best friends are Black.”

But Trump, while astute at business, is too thick-headed to see that questioning an American-born Black man’s citizenship (after it’s been proven twice) — just to appeal to rabid racist Republican — is, well, EFFING RACIST!

But, hey, we’re still glad Arsenio Hall won Celebrity Apprentice.

Donald Trump Says His Black Friends Don’t Think He’s Racist

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 12:00 am.

After questioning President Obama’s citizenship and his qualifications for his Ivy League degrees (and then claiming that he has a great relationship with “the Blacks”), a number of people have accused the real estate mogul-turned-television executive of harboring prejudices.

Trump blasted the criticism in a recent interview with CNN’s Don Lemon.  When asked about the racist charges and his use of the term “the Blacks,” Trump said, “I am a wonderful person as far as you would be concerned as to race. And I think everybody that knows me knows that.”

Among those that know him, Trump specifically highlighted his black friends – saying they “would laugh” at the insinuation that he’s racist.

Trump claims, “I have many, many black friends who said to me, ‘absolutely not a problem.’ … The fact is, I wanna focus on jobs, the economy … that nations are laughing at us and taking our money and taking our jobs and ripping us off.”

Rihanna Linked to Ryan Phillippe and Responds to Donald Trump

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 8:30 am.

So maybe there was something to those rumors that actor Ryan Phillippe linked up with Rihanna.

Despite Us Weekly initially reporting Rih-Rih gave Ryan the shade when he ran up on her, they’re now saying the two have been involved for months:

“She thinks he’s hot,” says the source. “They totally had sex. And it wasn’t even the first time!”

“They initially hooked up when things were strained with [Rihanna's ex] Matt Kemp back in early December,” says a Rihanna source. Phillippe (whose three-month, nonexclusive romance with Amanda Seyfried recently fizzled) and Rihanna then reconnected at Bing’s Two Kings charity event Feb. 19—though again, they played it cool.

“There was no PDA,” says an attendee of the Los Angeles party. The next day, he went to her 23rd birthday party at a Beverly Hills home. Says an onlooker, “They hung out a bit, but were discreet. It is still very casual.” Sums up another source, “Clearly they’re keeping it on the downlow!”

And their source is keeping it on the 1995 tip.

Anywho, in other Rihanna news, a rep has responded to Donald Trump’s choice words for her after she ditched his charity gig at the last minute.

A rep told Access Hollywood: “She feels terribly she couldn’t attend but was so grateful Jennifer Hudson graciously stepped in.”

So is the Don, apparently.

Donald Trump Vs. Rihanna?

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm.

Donald Trump would probably fire Rihanna… had she not completely bailed on a job she was supposed to do for him in the first place.

“The Donald” was “insulted” by Rih when she canceled a charity performance at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, just hours before showtime. Rihanna’s people cited ”sickness”  as the reason she bailed on the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute fundraiser that she was reportedly being paid $500,000 to perform for. (Side note: Shouldn’t that hefty pay check be used for the, umm, I don’t know, charity?).

Then, next thing know, the Good Girl Gone Bad star popped up at All-Star Weekend shaking it for basketball players, groupies, and everyone in between during half time. Um, excuse me, Rihanna! You didn’t look that sick to me at the All-Star Game. *side eye*

Trump was pretty pissed, although he noted he got Jennifer Hudson to fill in for the job, and said she’s a much better singer (gotta agree with him there, even if I still don’t trust anything he says because of that hair). Here’s what he told the Palm Beach Post:

“I thought that [Rihanna bailing] was insulting to everyone, but for Rihanna to go to the All-Star game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect . . . Nothing was missed. Jennifer’s a beautiful girl. She came on her day off even though she performs almost every night. She is an unbelievable talent, and her voice is better.”

Careful, Ri: You don’t want a feud with The Donald!

Boycotting Kanye And Is He Taking a Break?

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 at 12:00 am.


Kanye West continues to feel the fury from the world over his antics at the VMA’s.

As if it weren’t enough to be cursed out by both Pink and Katy Perry, Kanye has also gotten it from the likes of Pitbull and Marsha Ambrosius from Floetry.

It seems everyone and their aunty as something to say about Kanye West this week. No seriously even my aunt sent a text asking me what the hell was wrong with ‘Ye.

And now others are joining in on the fray.

Donald Trump has called for a boycott of all things Kanye “so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.” And Donald doesn’t think his outburst had anything to do with Beyonce per se.

He said, “He couldn’t care less about Beyonce. It was grandstanding to get attention.”

This is the same man who disrespected Rosie O’Donnell. Besides, Kanye is a true Beyonce stan. Next.

Papa Joe Jackson chimed in with:

I don’t know what he was doing, he jumped up on stage and snatched that microphone out of that poor girl’s hand. They should blackball him out of show business for that. He just leapt up there, that was bad.

I had just gotten through speaking to him, he was introducing me to his girlfriend, and then three minutes later he jumped up on stage. And people booed Kanye all night.”

I have three words for Joe Jackson: Ranch House Records.

If that weren’t enough editor of the New York Post’s PopWrap have called for a year long ban of Kanye West.

In a press release, Ryan Brockington and Jarett Wieselman wrote:

“This is just the latest in a long line of ridiculously overblown antics we’ve been treated to by the rapper and we here at PopWrap have had enough. Sure he apologized, but now he needs to atone. Feel free to link metaphorical arms with us and boycott the blowhard. Prove to Kanye that his abhorrent actions have consequences! So have a nice life Kanye, because we’re not interested anymore.”

Has the New York Post ever atoned for any of the salacious, sometimes racist, a little bit sexist comments made over the years? I thought so.

As wrong as Kanye West was, aren’t these calls for boycotts a bit extra?

And if things weren’t bad enough for the dude who should’ve kept his self in his seat, now President Obama has chimed in. Apparently he made an “off the record” remark to an ABC reporter that was then tweeted (how professional) in which he called Kanye a “jackass.”

Even if it’s true, shouldn’t he talking about health care reform or something? There’s no such thing as an “off the record” remark when you’re President. He could’ve said that talk when he got home to Michelle.

I can only imagine how Kanye must feel right now. He’s definitely still wrong, but he’s got everyone from random two hit wonders to the leader of the free world clowning him.

At least he knows he did wrong. On The Jay Leno Show Kanye said:

“I don’t try to justify it because I was just in the wrong. That’s period. But I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve. Because I am a celebrity, and that’s something I have to deal with. And if there’s anything I could do to help Taylor in the future or help anyone, I’d like — you know, I want to live this thing.”

Kanye appeared on the debut of The Jay Leno Show last night (what a huge debut for Jay Leno!), emotional and seeming extremely regretful.  When Leno asked what his mother would think of the incident, West clammed up and on the verge of tear.  “I need to, after this, take some time off and just analyze how I’m going to make it through the rest of this life, how I’m going to improve.”  He received a good response from the audience — let’s see if this will be some helpful damage control.

‘Ye performed “Run This Town” with Jay-Z and Rihanna, her first television appearance in months.
