Gabriel Abury’s bad luck held out today as he got squashed again, this time in the court. Gabriel had hoped to get his restraining order lifted, but the Judge refused according to TMZ. Originally he had hoped to get it lifted on the 28th but now looks more likely on the 29th.
In another twist Gabriel has referred to Halle Berry as being his ex-wife in court. The information came out in the open according to Extra after he submitted court documents on Monday. This could well be an attempt to rub salt into the wounds, as the relations between him, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez look set to sour further. See the full story at here.
This all comes days after a vicious assault that left Gabriel hospitalized. Both Gabriel and Olivier are pointing the fingers of blame at each other.
Meanwhile Christmas is coming, and it should be one to remember, for the Berry bunch.
Halle Berry’s love rival’s face off again, this time it’s a battle of words (luckily for Gaberiel). The news has broke and the pictures are out! Just in case you haven’t seen the photos, the confrontation has left Gaberiel Aubry looking like “Mr Potato Head”, meanwhile Oliver Martinez’s left hand is possibly disfigured for life, with a badly swollen left knuckle. In a haggard photo of Halle Berry she is seen leaving the hospital on Thursday, with poor Oliver Martinez’s rubbng the offending Knuckle – See Daily mail. In a tit for tat media, legal spat, both Aubry and Martinez have made public statements, leading to one set of lawyers getting a restraining order.
First of all I would like to congratulate both parties on making front page news again! And secondly for leaving a trail of lovely photos behind them. Just so that we can witness and know how retarded they really are. Although in Gaberiel’s defense he did try to hide under a shiny, fluffy blanket (I call it a comforter), after being charged with “battery over a brawl”. However the clever paparazzi saw past the ruse (rather ironically a French word) and took lots of photos of him hiding under the said comfortable looking blanket.
Allegedly it all kicked off when one party said “we are going to France to live” (understandably), along with a string of threats from the other. It’s hard to follow what really happened because according to TMZ, some of the later details were not included in the arresting statement by Aubrey
There are two nuggets of good news from this debacle. The most important, Nahla was saved from seeing the punch up, which allegdy led to her father being pounded into the drive way. The second is I had a very easy choice on what to write when I woke up this morning.
I wonder how Halle Berry is going to explain away the bruises, which are covering her daughter’s father from head to foot. But there again she is an actress. The whole story by the way has the makings of a Halle Berry film.
What’s it all about? A big part of the song is Korean for starters so some of it would be difficult to figure out. It would be even more difficult to work out how the thing went viral in the first place, if you could do that and bottle it we’d all be living in Gangnam dancing in rainbow colored clothes.
If all the media attention from TV wasn’t enough, It’s now become Youtube’s most viewed video. It’s infectious jigging music, addictive beat and lyrics – it’s very understandable why it’s gone totally mental. But what’s it all about? First off, Gangnam is the richest district in Seoul, it means south of the river. In fact if you stand on one side of the Han river, you can see Gangnam that’s where 1 percent of the city’s population live. From that position you can see the difference, the buildings are shinier, more beautiful and even the pedestrian walk ways looks nicer. It’s basically where the rich guys live who apparently like horses, bright clothes, hot women and who are extremely bow legged.
The rest of Seoul have a funny relationship with Gangnamer’s, they are seen as monopolizing the best schools and real estate. So PSY (the chubby dancer, singer) in a very tongue and cheek way is poking fun at the status quo. He attributed his success not to his physical prowess, or appearance but to his own heart and soul. Although he well known as being a good dancer in his own right. In the video he can been seen strutting his jigging horse style dance all over the place, even with a wild woman on the Korean metro.
The video also reflects other aspects of Korean culture, tattooed guys, which are still said rule the criminal world and actually flaunt they extensive tattoos in the sauna. People often give a guy with tattoos a wide birth in Korean.
The use of “oppa” is also an interesting one, on face value it just means older brother and is normally used by a Korean woman, or child. However in reality it can reflect different kinds of relationships than just that. The Korean language is jammed packed full of respectful language for all kinds of social situations, and reflects status. “Oppa” could mean older brother (respectfully), but it’s often used by girls who have older boyfriends, sugar daddies or even other kinds of naughtier relationships.

PSY on the face of things might not be a woman’s first choice. In the video he dresses like a rich country bumpkin with no class, or somebody who’s extremely socially awkward but with stacks of cash. He’s very much modeled on a kind Jim Carrey type figure, who’s goofy but got bundles of heart and soul. In his own words his goal is to “dress classey, but dance cheesy”.
If the success is anything to go by and if you want to be hit with the girls and end up dancing woman to woman all over the place – take some notes from “Gangnam Style.”
A salute to one of USA’s biggest TV stars – Larry Hagman. The character that Larry Hagman played of course was J.R. Ewing, the TV villain everyone loved to hate. Dallas of course was well before my time, as I’m way too young! But to those of you that can remember the first time around and to the young guys like me (really!) who’ve seen the reruns Larry Hagman will always be a star!
There’s already been many accolades pouring in from the media, friends, family and his fellow cast memebers, on his life, persona and work. But I would like to celebrate his life in a different way. Through a story I once heard about him, which was actually one of the funniest celeb stories I’ve ever heard.
It was years ago back in the days when I actually watched TV, a long time before I became addicted to the internet. At the time I was probably bored because I was flicking through the channels like a man with a nervous tick, when I saw Patrick Duffy, he walking onto a talk show. Firstly I was struck at how damn good he was aging (still a woman’s heart throb), secondly by how chilled out and genuinely funny he was. The host was going through the normal questions, and somehow they got onto the topic of stories. It went something like this…
Patrick Duffy was walking down a corridor in some studio or something. He’d just left his dressing room and he suddenly had the urge to relieve himself. Larry Hagman’s dressing room was nearby, but then he spied a toilet for the physically impaired – which was not being used. If I’m being totally honest, in an emergency I have done the exactly same thing. So here he is, he pops into the toilet closes the door and does his business, when there’s a loud rapping sound on the door. The guy outside was righteously angry because he had a damn good idea that the user (Duffy) was not let say, a “priority user” for that facility. Apparently there was a lot of cursing from the other side of the door. Duffy comes out, and there’s an angry old man outside. In my mind’s eye I can just picture this, because Duffy is a tall a chappy and pretty famous, but the old man was totally unphased and still pretty cheesed off! So he rants and threatens to report Duffy or something similar. The guy looks at Duffy vehemently and demands, “what’s your name!” Duffy thinks about it for a moment, and says “Larry Hagman” and walks off.
Of course Duffy and Hagman, were the best of friends from the very first moment they shook hands, which makes the story all the better. Luckily for us Hagman has left us with a fantastic body of work, which we can continue to enjoy.
