Quote: Enrique Iglesias

"The next product I'm gonna put my name on is extra-small condoms," he deadpans, mock-seriously. "I can never find extra-small condoms, and I know it's really embarrassing for people -- you know, from experience. Hopefully people won't be ashamed when I step forward."

Vote or Die under investigation

The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has filed a formal complaint against Sean “Diddy” Combs with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) claiming the mogul’s support of John Kerry for President may have violated the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) and the Internal Revenue Service Code.

Peter Flaherty, President of The NLPC, references two rallies staged by Diddy and his non-profit group Citizen Change where such partisan politics took place, including an Oct. 26, 2004 event in Detroit during which Leonardo DiCaprio and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick urged the crowd to vote for Kerry.

The Complaint states that Citizen Change’s address was listed as the same as Diddy’s business address and alleges that Diddy could have used his company’s corporate funds to illegally support Citizen Change’s activities.

The NLPC wants the FEC to find out if Diddy used his Vote or Die campaign to advance “commercial activity, namely Combs' line of clothing and/or his clothing company.”

Desperate Actor, Page Kennedy Fired!

You all know him as the lovable guy in the basement on the hit series "Desperate Housewives." But homeboy was doing something he shouldn't have been doing and was fired from the show. Was he touch some white booty? Or probably just to maky blacks on this lilly white of a show. His role is currently being recasted. Be strong black man you can always join the cast of The Wire if HBO ever decided to bring it back.

The Boondocks: Animated series

Aaron McGruder's comic strip about two brothers, 10 year-old Huey
and 8-year-old Riley Freeman, centers on their being moved out of
Chicago's South Side and into the bucolic suburban setting of
Woodcrest -- "The Boondocks" -- with their cantankerous "Granddad,"
Robert Freeman.

The strip, and now the series, sets up a world where old and new
schools collide, white and black perspectives clash, and race and
class are never out of mind. But lost in the din of McGruder's
politics and fierce skewering of black and white pop and political
figures is a touching coming-of-age story with enough warmth to
melt many of the sharp -- and hilarious -- edges.

Right out of the gate, "The Boondocks" is a water-cooler series that
lives up to the hype. It is funny, fearless and continues the vibe of
the strip -- Huey forever let down by the antics of his black
brethren, the president and white people in general, and Riley,
mostly the opposite, an 8-year-old with less of a furrowed-brow,
worry-about-the-world outlook than his brother.

Be forewarned, this show is not for those that get easily offended.
It takes potshots at everyone and Richard Pryor-type humor and
language though out.

Voice Talent:

Regina King- Huey and Riley Freeman
John Witherspoon - Granddad
