This is the “original cold water challenge” or ALS as we so choose to call it for 2014. However, it was a torture method used to break big black bucks! The pic above is 1858 in a prison facility. I applaud the celebrities who got the call to divert the attention from the Mike Brown case, to start this campaign…. Just a little black history known fact that many of us didn’t learn in high school..

oan Rivers Update: Daughter Melissa Asks for Prayers as Fellow Celebs Send Well Wishes. With Joan Rivers in a medically induced coma in what daughter Melissa has characterized as a “serious” condition, fellow celebrities and fans alike are sending their best wishes to the red carpet queen.
Melissa, who has been keeping vigil at her ailing mom’s side, released a new statement Friday to The Insider With Yahoo: “Her condition remains serious but she is receiving the best treatment and care possible.” The comedy icon stopped breathing during what was supposed to be a minor throat procedure at a New York clinic. She was rushed to Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan in critical condition. Doctors placed her in a coma to stabilize her and plan to reevaluate her condition over the weekend, according to sources close to the family.
"My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world," Melissa added. "We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery." Melissa, who rushed from Los Angeles with son Cooper when she received news of her mother’s emergency Thursday morning, previously told Yahoo that Joan "was resting comfortably and is with our family."
As Melissa noted, thoughts and prayers are pouring in, both via deliveries to the hospital and on social media. As Rosie O’Donnell put it: “Hey, Joan, this show ain’t over — get well now!”
Miami Heat baller Dwayne Wade is getting hitched to actress Gabrielle Union this weekend. Wade and Union obtained a marriage license from Miami-Dade County, Gumbumper has learned exclusively, and the only thing they need to make their union official is the signature of the person who’s marrying them.
Union signed up for the license online Tuesday and paid the $93.50-fee. (The fee is actually higher because they opted not to take the $20-online premarital preparation course) Union got the license right on time: State law mandates that lovers wait for three days before a marriage license becomes effective.
I cannot take North West’s cuteness. Little North is beautiful, the perfect combination of her mother and father. Recently, North and her mother Kim Kardashian were spotted in La Jolla, California. Apparently, North has got this walking thing down because Kim, instead of carrying her let her stretch her baby legs on the sidewalk. The two wore similar outfits with rips in their denim. The paparazzi caught the one year old taking a couple of steps in her white tank top before Kardashian picked her up. Too precious.
Nick Cannon: I’m the One Who Left the Relationship NOT MARIAH….
Nick Cannon is the one who decided to bail on his marriage — not Mariah — sources connected with the couple tell TMZ. Nick has made it clear to all involved … he’s deeply concerned about Mariah’s emotional state and is ending the marriage for the well being of their kids. He believes the environment around Mariah is toxic and fears for his kids. We’re told Nick believes his kids have already shown signs of emotional upset living with Mariah.
Our sources say Nick’s MO is simple … he wants to create an environment separate from Mariah that gives the kids a safe haven from the “chaos” at her home. Nick is also telling his people he’s deeply concerned about Mariah’s mental health and believes her people don’t care about anything but her ability to make money and pay their salaries.

Michael Strahan Caught Filming Former Sister-In-Law Undressing NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan, has been accused of paying off his former sister-in-law after secretly videotaping her stripping, according to allegations made in court docs. According to the National ENQUIRER, TheLive With Kelly & Michael co-host may have tried to pay “hush money” to silence the sisters. Strahan was previously married for 6 years to Jean Muggli. During their nasty divorce battle, Muggli testified to the superior court: “I had found video equipment in my bedroom. He had been taping my sister Denise undressing.” She also testified that Strahan wired her $30, 000 to keep quiet about it, saying, “It’s possible that Michael was sending Jean hush money’ and it’s also possible that the money was intended for her or her sister Denise.”
Sounds like Strahan is a FREAK!!!
