Corinne Bailey Rae's Husband Jason Rae Dead, Emilio Navaira Injured, Corazon Aquino With Cancer & Orit Greenberg Sues Oprah Winfrey, What A Weekend?

What an Easter weekend. The husband of soul singer Corinne Bailey Rae was discovered dead. Yorkshire police arrived at an apartment in the Hyde Park area of Leeds in northern England on Saturday, where they found the body of a 31-year-old man. They later identified him as Jason Rae. Drugs are suspected to be involved in the ordeal. A drug related arrest has apparently been made.

Singer, Emilio Navaira, was critically injured Sunday when his band's bus crashed in the metro area. Navaira and his band Rio had performed at a Houston nightclub on Saturday night. At about 5 a.m. Sunday, the bus slammed into traffic barrels on Interstate 610 northbound in Bellaire. Navaira was one of eight passengers on the bus who were injured. Navaira was apparently in critical condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital in intensive care. He apparently had surgery Sunday to remove a blood clot in his head and is a medically induced coma. Navaira has been married twice and has five children ranging in age from 2 to 18. Navaira ( a Democrat) toured with Texas Gov. George W. Bush during his 1998 re-election bid and sang "Juntos Con Bush (Together With Bush)." Wish him a speedy recovery.
Up date 4-17-08 Emilio Navaira has been upgraded to fair condition.

Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino apparently has colon cancer according to here daughter, Kris. Corazon Aquino is 75. She succeeded dictator Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 and became a symbol of democracy. She has remained active in social and political causes.

Finally, Oprah Winfreys most recent weight gain may not be her only problem. A woman has filed a lawsuit claiming that she was injured in a dash for seats at the Oprah Winfrey Show. Orit Greenberg seeks approximately $50,000 in damages. Did Harpo Studios fail to control the audience on Dec. 5, 2006 as the lawsuit alleges? Allegedly, audience members were told to sit wherever they wanted. Did this instruction lead to the crowd pushing Greenberg down a flight of stairs causing "severe and permanent injuries?" Harpo Studios does not comment on pending litigation, so their version of the story is yet to be heard.

Finally, for Legal Pub bachelors, Pam Anderson should be back on the market soon. After getting married, filing for divorce and then calling the divorce off, Ric Salomon apparently agrees with Pam that their marriage should be annulled. The grounds for the annulment are fraud. Neither party elaborated; however, no sane person would! (Future story topic?) Who is ready to be the next to pass through Pam's life?

Well, I am back. Not too sunny on the left coast right now. Rumors of my demise, Ms. C. are greatly overstated. However, I may need to move to Connneticut if they do indeed make it a more witch friendly state. In the mean time, with the price of gas being so high, I am fortunate to have a hybrid broom.

Welcome back Bombshell. If my days weren't so busy laying around doing nothing, I could have shown you around Malibu... For the rest of you, my buds told me this last night around the camp fire at the beach right before we got chased off by the patrol)

A teacher asked her 5th grade class how many of them were Hillary fans?

Wanting to be liked by the
teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny.

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he was not a Hillary Clinton fan.

Little Johnny says, 'Because I'm not a Hillary fan.'

Teacher: 'Why aren't you a Hillary fan?'

Johnny:'Because I'm a Republican.'

Teacher: Why are you a Republican?

Little Johnny:'Well, my Mom's a Republican and my Dad's a
Republican, so I'm a Republican.'

Teacher: 'If your Mom was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what
would that make you?'

Little Johnny: 'That would make me a Hillary fan .'

Jason could really play the sax! Drugs are bad and they will get you one way or the other. R.I.P. Jason.

hasn't been the same without you Shell. Welcome back!

Pam Anderson should have married Borat.

Thanks Ms. C. Spreading myself kind of thin lately, which even for a witch can be difficult.

As for men passing through lives like ships in the night, it makes for a better metaphore then it does a real life practice.

Spreading yourself thin like peanut butter beats putting on weight like Charlie Weiss and Oprah from eating the whole case of peanut butter...
