The verdict in the George Zimmerman trial may be the most controversial since OJ Simpson was acquitted of double murder in 1995. Having received an extraordinary amount of press coverage from the outset, the question put before six female jurors on July 13th in Sanford, Florida seemed simple: Was George Zimmerman guilty of second degree murder, manslaughter, or nothing at all?

The incident in question — the fatal shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin — occurred on February 26, 2012, when Zimmerman, 28, who was working as a neighborhood watchman for a gated community, fired his gun during an alleged scuffle. As the case unfolded and the press discovered stranger and more incredible details, the country quickly began taking sides. Read the rest of this entry »


Ten Famous People You Probably Didn’t Know Were Adopted

Perhaps you’ve wondered at some point what happens to children once they are adopted. Perhaps you’ve wondered if they grow up to become successful, or suffer the same afflictions as their biological parents, such as drug or alcohol abuse.

Most people who are adopted consider their adoptive parents their real parents, and don’t advertise their adoption. For that reason, you probably had no idea the ten celebrities below were adopted.

1. Steve Jobs

Ten Shocking Celebrity Arrests

We’ve all seen Lindsay Lohan’s mug shots; it’s hard to keep track of which one goes with which arrest. In fact, there’s no shortage of celebrity mug shots out there. It’s pretty much a revolving door for Hollywood’s honeys getting arrested.

However, the rap sheets for some celebrities are a little more interesting — mostly because we wouldn’t have expected them to be anything but squeaky-clean.

1. Tim Allen


This comic revealed the details of his arrest in his autobiography. Fans of the show Home Improvement may have been surprised to discover that he had been jailed for selling cocaine in 1978. His time in prison was shortened because he gave up information on the dealers he knew.

Seeing celebrities walking on the streets, shopping or dining while not in front of the camera often brings a feeling of excitement most especially to women who are avid movie and TV fans. In the U.S., Los Angeles in California is one place where these stars can be spotted. Many of them live in or near the area such as Beverly Hills and Hollywood where most studios are located.


Being in Los Angeles, however, does not guarantee you’ll see stars or bump into them just about anywhere. These celebrities value their privacy and don’t normally go out simply to stroll around. They are out in town only when necessary such as to do errands, go to the gym or enjoy a quiet dinner at their favorite restaurant.

If you’re really eager to go star watching in L.A., here are some tips on where you can spot them or even hang out with them.

Drop by celebrity-owned restaurants – Geisha House, Chi, Rokbar and Falcon.

Restaurants in Malibu such as Nobu and Taverna Tony’s are also favorite spots of celebs. On Robertson Boulevard, you can visit The Ivy, Newsroom Café and Michael Richard Patisserie. Stars who have been seen here include Tori Spelling, Paris Hilton, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Britney Spears.

At Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel bars, you just might see Lindsay Lohan. The place has a strict doorman, though and the long lines can be frustrating.

Coffee lovers should check out Peet’s Coffee, Starbucks, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf notably on Sunset Plaza and Montana Avenue in Malibu. King’s Road Café on Beverly Boulevard is also recommended.

Toast Café located at 8221 W Third St. is popular among celebs notably during lunchtime. Visit on weekdays and enjoy great salads, sandwiches and cupcakes.

Why Celebrities Should Stay Away From Fashion Design

With the launch of Madonna’s new range of Aldo shoes and the news that perpetually half-dressed R&B singer Rihanna is to design a collection of clothes next spring for River Island, it is worth remembering that not all celebrities who dip their hand into fashion come out on top. Whilst many celebrities have contributed their name and time to designing clothes or shoes for charitable causes, Kim Kardashian’s SchoeDazzle being amongst such programs, more often than not the lines are launched purely for vanity purposes; something that is reflected by the poor commercial return on these projects.
