Model turnt Actress turnt television host, Tyra Banks is due in court this week to testify against a Georgia man accused of following and harrassing her from Los Angeles to NYC. Banks, photographed above during the “Broadcasting Reality: Show Me The Money!” Luncheon is scheduled to testify in a Manhattan courtroom where Brady Green goes on trial on charges of stalking her.
Green, a resident of Dublin, Ga., is accused of following Banks from coast to coast since January of last year. He was arrested in a McDonald’s near the Manhattan building where “The Tyra Banks Show” is taped after he attempted to see Tyra on March 18, 2008.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Green, he had been stalking Banks since January of the 2008 and had attempted to contact Banks by appearing at both her Los Angeles and NYC studios, making repeated phone calls and sending multiple letters to her workplace and even having flowers delivered to the runway star. At the time of his arrest, he was found carrying a large duffel bag full of magazine clips of the model, along with notes he had written himself that documented several of his attempts to contact Banks.
Banks told the Manhattan District Attorney’s office she was “in fear of physical injury, serious injury or death” as a result of Green’s actions. Shortly after the incident, she was granted a restraining order against him. Green, 38, has pleaded not guilty to stalking, harassment and criminal trespass and faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge James Burke, who is hearing the case without a jury.

He’s BATTERED but not BROKEN! Mike Vick has closed a deal for his own reality show:
Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has clinched a $600,000 deal to headline his own unscripted documentary series chronicling his life, once he’s out of the federal pen where he’s currently serving a 23-month sentence for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy.
Cameras will start rolling after he’s sprung on July 20 and will follow him as he seeks to “make amends for his past,” including starting work at a $10-an-hour construction job as he applies for reinstatement in the NFL. (Source)
I can’t wait for Mike to make a comeback. I’m soooo rooting for his success. Y’all can call it racist, stupid, whatever you want, but nothing can change my mind. His punishment definitely did NOT fit the crime and I for one am still on his side…
Hulk Hogan totally relates to OJ Simpson’s murderous rampage against his ex-wife. You see, Hulk has been dealing with a messy divorce and seeing his wife Linda shack up with a much younger man (moving the dude into the home purchased with Hulk’s wrestling dough) has got to take it’s toll on the old guy.
“I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody’s throat. You live half a mile from the 20,000 sq ft home you can’t go to anymore, you’re driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife… I totally understand OJ. I get it.” (Source)

I guess he’s been sitting at home watching old Chris Rock comedy skits. I can see him now, co-signing with Rock’s “I ain’t sayin’ he shoulda killed her…but I understand!”

T.I.’s Road to Redemption: The Reckoning aired last night and Tip sat down with MTV’s Sway for one final interview before he starts his sentence in May. Tip tells Sway that he’s over the questions about his weapons charges and arrest stating: “This is the last time…After this I’m done! Don’t ask me no more questions bout this OK? Finito!” OK…Tip! I think we get it. You don’t want to be asked anymore questions about your legal issues, right? Right.
Meanwhile, while Tip’s keeping quiet, reportedly his snitchin “A”zz bodyguard, 34 year old Corey Williams is NOT. Williams was intrumental in developing the weapons case in that he had monitored conversations with T.I. and wore a wire on the rapper during a face-to-face meeting. He also agreed to testify against his former employer as a “confidential witness” after the bust went down. After all that, Williams did not get off easily. He still received the exact same penalty as T.I. (366 days) even though their criminal records are on opposite ends of the spectrum.
