Kanye West Apologizes To Kim K

Kanye West is apologizing to his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, for “any stress” he’s caused since their split.  He discussed her and their children in an interview with ABC News that aired Thursday on Good Morning America.  West said he has “new respect” for Kardashian, who filed for divorce in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.  “This is the mother of my children, and I apologize for any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration, because God calls me to be stronger,” the star said. “I need this person to be less stressed and of best sound mind and as calm as possible to be able to raise those children at the end of the day.” When asked if he feels he has a voice in co-parenting his kids, West said he does but had “to fight for it.”  “As a dad and as a Christian. And I have a right to have a voice on what my kids are wearing, what they’re watching, what they’re eating,” he added. “I have a platform where I get to say what so many dads can’t say out loud.”  In addition, West said he “absolutely” wants his children to attend Donda Academy, the “gospel school” he created and named after his late mother, Donda West, and has “to fight” for it.  “I’m their dad. It has to be co-parenting. It’s not up to only the woman. Like, men have a choice also. Men’s voices matter,” he added.

The Queen Was “Deeply Hurt” By Harry and Meghan

A new report is revealing intimate details of how the Queen felt about Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, choosing to step away from their duties as senior royals.  In an excerpt from “The New Royals” shared with Vanity Fair, author and royal expert Katie Nicholl details the toll their departure had on the queen, who was allegedly “deeply hurt by Harry’s decision to leave his family and the country.” Although Her Majesty was profoundly impacted, she “made it clear that if Harry and Meghan chose to leave, they could not reap the benefits of being royal,” Nicholl wrote.  “According to a friend, privately the queen confided that she was exhausted by the turmoil of their decision,” Nicholl continued. “She was very hurt and told me, ‘I don’t know, I don’t care, and I don’t want to think about it anymore,’ says that person.”  The late monarch was 94 years old at the time of Harry and Meghan’s announcement and still had her husband, Prince Philip, by her side.  Another point of contention for the queen was the relationship between her son, King Charles III, and Harry, which “caused the queen so much upset.”  Nicholl also reports that King Charles III “desperately wants to reconcile with his son.”
*****She was hurt?? Mission accomplished!!
********Harry wants to reconcile, too!! So he can write about it in his next book!!
*********King Charles is enjoying the Queen’s supply of “Meghan Markle Toilet Paper!!!”

Johnny Depp Is Dating His Attorney

Johnny Depp is dating Joelle Rich, an attorney who represented him in his UK libel trial against the Sun.  The London-based lawyer is married but separated, and her divorce may not have been finalized yet.  Earlier this summer, Depp sparked romance rumors with another attorney, Camille Vasquez, who represented him in his victorious US defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard.  However, Vasquez quickly quieted the rumor mill, calling the allegations “sexist” and “unethical.”  “I care very deeply about my clients, and we have obviously become close,” she told People in June. “But when I say ‘we,’ I mean the entire team, and of course that includes Johnny.”  Vasquez noted that Depp had been her friend and client for four and a half years.  Rich was not one of the lawyers who worked on the US case, but she was reportedly present in the courtroom.  According to Us Weekly, the British attorney — who is a mother of two — was in Virginia to show her “support” for him.
******How come OUR attorneys aren’t that hot?
******Oh, that’s right!! We’re not Johnny Depp!!!
******So is Camille Vasquez is still available?? Because… yeah!!

Brad Pitt’s Sexy List

On the heels of announcing his new skin-care line Le Domaine, Brad Pitt has revealed his top picks for the most attractive men in Hollywood, past and present.  In a new interview with Vogue on Wednesday, the Oscar winner noted how late filmmaker Paul Newman and his friend George Clooney are “the most handsome in the world.”  “You know in the acting world because it’s my day job… the immediate go-to is Paul Newman, because he aged so gracefully,” Pitt said. “By all reports, [he was] a really special, giving, warm and truthful human being.”  When he was asked who he thinks is “handsome” in present-day Tinseltown, he name-dropped his pal Clooney.  “I gotta name that George Clooney f–ker, because why not?” Pitt added. “Because usually, I’m always taking him out and he’s always taking me out. And this time, I’m gonna go the other way, just this once.”  “This one’s for you, George.”  Pitt announced his foray into the beauty industry Wednesday, with the release of his new genderless skin-care line, Le Domaine.

Journey Members Square Off

Steve Perry, who fronted Journey from 1977 to 1998 and sang on many of their most well-known hits, is attempting to stop his former bandmates from owning trademarks to the names of some of the band’s biggest songs.  Journey’s two biggest mainstays – guitarist Neal Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain – hold the trademarks to many of the band’s hits, including ‘Anyway You Want It’, ‘Wheel In The Sky’ and ‘Open Arms’, through their Freedom JN LLC company.  The trademarks covers the use of those titles on merchandise such as T-shirts, hoodies and other apparel, making it easier for Schon and Cain to sue anyone infringing the trademark by selling items bearing those titles.  However, in a petition filed by Perry to the US Patent and Trademark Office on September 11, the singer argued that Schon and Cain’s trademark goes against a partnership agreement the trio signed requiring unanimous consent for any business relating to the trademarked songs, and that he had not provided that consent. As such, he has asked the agency to invalidate 20 of the pair’s trademark registrations. According to the agreement, which Perry quoting in his filing: “No Partner may authorize, approve or disapprove any use or exploitation, or grant or license any rights in or to any Group Compositions, in whole or in part, (including, without limitation, the titles thereof) in connection with any Product or otherwise, without the prior, written, unanimous consent of all of the partners.”

Is There A Beer Shortage Coming??

Breweries could soon see beer shortages thanks to an unprecedented carbon dioxide contamination that is taking the industry by storm. The potential shortage would be due to an extinct underground volcano in Mississippi contaminating the naturally-occurring carbon dioxide reservoir in the area, adding supply chain woes to the already devastating effects of inflation.  “It’s certainly something we’re keeping close attention to,” said Ronn Friedlander, co-CEO of Massachusetts’ Aeronaut Brewing Company.  “We have to figure out some way to continue to source CO2 and, for now, we’re actually just staying ahead of it, but it’s certainly a big concern for us,” he added.  Despite ongoing challenges small businesses – including breweries – faced during and after the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Friedlander says the carbon dioxide shortage is perhaps the most challenging due to its unpredictability.  “It’s a different type of challenge because it’s very unpredictable. We don’t know if we’re going to have enough CO2 next month although we do think there’s a lot of alternatives available to it.”
********Wait… we thought there was TOO MUCH CO2?? We’re confused!!
****Is BEER causing global warming???
******If there isn’t enough beer, the Super Bowl will be canceled!!!

Stolen Car Gets Stuck In Concrete
