Council Orders Houseowner To Repaint Her Cottage... Because it's TOO PINK

 Mrs Kennedy and her husband Mark, owners of the above pictured cottage have been threatened with court by their 'jobsworth' local council after planners decided they had made it too pink. 

The couple say that Teignbridge District Council in Devon have threatened legal action after a single complaint about the shade of paint used on Lantern Cottage, which they say should be lighter.

The Kennedy family maintains the three bedroom cottage in Kennford was pink when they bought it for £130,000 12 years ago and took photos of it at the time which prove it is still the same colour. All they did was spent nearly £1,000 renewing the paintwork in the same colour, pink.

They have received backing from local Lib Dem councillor Alan Connett, who has intervened on their behalf. #OnlyintheUK.... See more photos when you continue...

Who Wore It Best? Kris Jenner Vs Kim Kardashian

Yes, it's no big deal at all....It would appear that for an appearance in New York, that Mum Kris, borrowed the $3,690 Valentino red dress from her daughter Kim - who was first spotted wearing it on a trip to London in September 2012. A whole seven months earlier. I must say, she did justice to the dress too. Who rocked it best?

Barack Obama Wears Wife Michelle's Fringe In Spoof Pictures

Barack Obama had his guests laughing as he delivered his annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner speech this weekend. 

He kicked off his speech by joking 'second term, baby!' as he celebrates his second term in office. Obama then said: 'I recognise that this job can take a toll on you. I understand that second term you need a burst of new energy and try some new things. My team and I talked about it and we're willing to try anything, so we borrowed one of Michelle's tricks.'

He then launched a slideshow of funny Photoshopped images of himself sporting his wife Michelle's famous fringe. "I think this looked pretty good, but no bounce." This had the dinner guests laughing and whooping. Oh dear this man can really be funny.

Obama also made a joke about Taylor Swift and the controversy surrounding close friend Jay-Z and Beyoncé's recent visit to Cuba, saying: 'I've got 99 problems and now Jay-Z is one.

Watch his complete speech below.....

NB Inspiration: The Opposite of Success Is Not What You Think

Question - What is the opposite of success?
I’m gonna guess that you’d probably say that the opposite of success is failure.
That would be wrong, many of us have actually believed that lie. The opposite of Success, as described by Joe Malarkey, is Doing Nothing and I so much agree with him. Failure is actually an integral part of success.

Literally success and failure are both polar opposites of one another but in reality, one is needed for the other to happen. If there were no such thing as failure, then there would be no such thing as success. If everyone succeeded, then it wouldn't be called success because it's an attribute of everyone. If everyone failed, then it wouldn't be called failure as that too is an attribute of everyone.

Press Release: Jackie Appiah & Bobby Obodo Are Not Getting Married

Popular Gollywood star Jackie Appiah, and Nigerian actor and model Bobby Obodo, are rumoured to be dating and are about getting married. Here is a press statement from the actress's media rep. denying the story which has gone viral on the internet.

I find it necessary to comment on recent scurrilous, slanderous and preposterous social media reports on Jackie Appiah's alleged 'marriage' to Bobby Obodo.

First of all, let me state here that Jackie Appiah is absolutely not getting married to Bobby Obodo and the two of them are just good friends. See the rest after the cut...

I am appalled that the so-called reputable sites printing these vicious lies do not deem it fit to practice the simplest ethics of journalism like being accurate in their report and seeking reliable sources. Which of you confirmed from Jackie's management before going ahead to print?

Jackie Appiah owes it to her fans and members of the public who have always supported her career, to set the record straight on issues like these, so without further ado, I wish to urge everyone to please disregard this misrepresentation of Jackie.

Humphries Ends Kardashian Divorce Trial Because He “Felt Sorry” For Her

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries officially divorced last week, after he pulled the plug on the court feud on Friday.
It has been claimed that Humphries decided to end his legal battle with Kardashian because he "felt sorry" for her.

A friend of the athlete told Wetpaint: "At the end of the day, Kris is truly a good guy. Yes, he was angry at Kim for the way their marriage ended and he truly DID feel defrauded by her and the show.
"But lately, especially in recent weeks, he just feels sorry for her. She's pregnant and obviously under a lot of stress. He didn't want to be part of it any more."
The pal also denied that Humphries was motivated to pursue his claims of fraudulent marriage to secure a heavy divorce pay-out.
"This was never about the money for Kris. He has plenty. It was about clearing his name," he said.
"But I think he finally realized enough damage has been done on both sides and it was time to end the situation once and for all."

NB Inspiration: My Signature Story......Reflections

On Inspiration Today, am kicking off my 'Signature Story' with this poem titled Reflections.

Today I reflected on what could have been and what is to be
Today I reflected on the woman in the mirror
It was more than a picture, a dream, a painting
It was real; it was lived by me.

Today I reflected upon the journey
Today I reflected on that path which I traveled
It was challenging, painful, it was sweet, and it was not a dream
It was real; it was life lived by me.

Meet Barber Babes, Topless Hairdressers In Australia

A topless barber shop has become a hit in Australia, offering customers to have their haircut done by a barely-clothed female hairdresser.

'Barber Babes', based in Brisbane, sees employees wearing just hot pants or underwear, according to The Courier-Mail. In addition to haircuts, they offer head massages, eyebrow waxing, blow-dries and shaves.

Men Deported For Being 'Too Handsome'

HANDSOME people have dreadful lives don’t they? All those sexual advances, grooming and deportation...hehehe. You’re querying the latter huh? Well, that’s what happened to three fellas from the UAE who were whisked away from a festival in Saudi Arabia for apparently being ‘too good-looking’.

Janadriyah – an annual shindig in Riyadh – was temporarily stopped on Sunday while these three devilishly handsome men were escorted from the event.

Saudi religious police were drawn to the group upon seeing them at the festival’s UAE pavilion.
“Three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds [that] they are too handsome and that the [festival] commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” said a festival official.

The trio where then deported to Abu Dhabi, where women are presumably more savvy and cynical, able to resist the charms of men with nice faces. Hahahaha
The idea that there’s a religious police force in itself, that determine the destructive nature of people’s good looks is weird. So all my fine and sexy dudes una don hear naw, beware when you visit certain places or else you might get lashed...

Nigeria’s 8 Most Over Exposed Celebrities By Segun Adekoye

Welcome to the 21st century in Nigeria. Smartphones are almost the same cost as Johnny Rocket’s Hamburgers. Sim cards are free. Internet services are fairly faster than Nipost’s emails. Information moves  quicker than Daily Times’ newspaper vendors. This change is affecting everything. In the pre-GSM era, Nigerian Celebrities would pray for a spot on Saturday Punch or the other weekend tabloids for exclusive interviews or some amount of exposure. So, you were either good enough to compete with the Sunny Okosun’s and Onyeka Onwenu’s or you were frightening enough to hit the pages almost everyday as a Shina Rambo or you were controversial enough to share spots with Regina Askia on these newspapers. There was no internet. The masses kept abreast with entertainment news only a week after the papers had been discarded. Continue after the cut.....
