This social networking this is way outta control. First a MARTA bus driver gets suspended after a passenger twitpics him using his cell and now a teacher has been forced to resign over Facebook photos! Ashley Payne, a former Georgia high school teacher is smack dab in the middle of the most recent social networking controversy. Payne was forced to resign, after school administrators questioned the material posted on her Facebook page. Payne says she had pictures of her trip to Europe on the site and wrote about a game she plays with friends. She says none of the material was inappropriate, but a parent complained about a picture of her holding a drink in her hand.
I had no idea how a parent could have seen something like that on my page cause I had everything set to private. I wasn’t friends with any students. I didn’t give any access to students or parents.
The photo below is one of the pics that got Payne fired. She was holding a glass of Guinness Beer after visiting a brewery in Dublin:
Comedian Katt Williams, who was recently arrested and charged with burglarizing a home in Newnan, has been released on $41,000 bond. The 34-year-old was arrested in suburban Atlanta, Georgia Sunday, November 8th after allegedly breaking into a house located in Newnan, about 38 miles southwest of Atlanta and stealing $3,555 worth of jewelry and collectible coins. He was said to be holding a crowbar when he entered the building.
Katt is NOT holding his tongue about the incident as he tells television news reporters recently that the charges are absolutely absurd, adding that he never resulted to stealing when he was homeless and he certainly wouldn’t do it now that he’s a multi-millionaire! Katt, who’s staying at the home while filming “The Obama Effect” in Newnan, has also been accused of holding a 17 year old boy hostage just days prior to the burglary arrest. On November 3rd this 911 call was made:
Robin Thicke has paired up with Jay-Z for a hot new single entitled Meiplé (pronounced Me I Play). The song is cute and of course Jay’s verse makes it hotter as he raps on the track about what else? Saint Tropez, champagne and beautiful women i.e. Beyonce. The two were caught on video during the studio session, where Thicke is shown at the boards, producing the track. They share high fives as everyone in the room agrees that they finally got it just right. Lets see if you agree. Listen to the final product below:

My favorite ex-Falcons player, quarterback Michael Vick has overcome yet another legal battle recently. An 8th Circuit appeals court has ruled that player can keep $16.22 million in bonuses that the Atlanta Falcons tried to reclaim after he was suspended for participating in a dogfighting ring.

You may have heard by now that Shaunie O’neal has filed for legal separation against her husband Shaquille O’neal. It’s not the first time these two have gone at it but is it the last? Shaunie first filed in 2007 and had Shaq on edge for quite sometime before deciding to reconcile, this time though Shaunie seems to be fed up over Shaq’s frequent indiscretions and she’s filing them papers! <que The “A” Pod ~ Usher’s “Papers” >
It’s only been a few months since the rumor mill stopped spinning over Shaq’s Atlanta side piece, Mary Jane. In fact, there are still those who wonder if Mary Jane’s son is actually Shaq’s. Now Shaq’s involved in even more scandals involving children and paternity: a secret love affair with a fellow ball player’s pregnant fiance as well as his rumored live-in stripper chick with a one year old!

Check out three photos of former Chicago baseball player Sammy Sosa throughout the years. The first photo is Sammy as a rookie and the one on the far right is Sammy now. Do you notice a difference? Well apparently in the aftermath of all that steroids controversy, Sammy’s not quite comfortable in his own skin. According to a close friend of Sosa’s this is just a freak reaction to a process we women go through all the time… 😕
He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin,” [Rebecca] Polihronis said. “Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting.
“He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.'”
Sosa has also added his own explanation as to why his skin appears so much lighter in the recent photograph. In an interview with Spanish speaking Univision reporter Tony Dandrades Tuesday on the program “Primer Impacto,” Sosa answered questions about how and why he desired to change his appearance. He was also asked if Michael Jackson was the inspiration for his new look: Continue Reading…
