I’d be giving that look too if I were you, T.O.
Since it doesn’t look like former football player Terrell Owens will have another high paying, full-time job anytime soon, he’s had to figure out a way to save some of the money he has left. So, he’s sold yet another one of his homes.
Owens already sold his condos in Dallas, Miami and Atlanta for way under the asking price and unfortunately for him, this was no different. According to TMZ, the mansion went on the market in 2010 (T.O. bought it in 2000) at an asking price of $1.5 million but apparently he didn’t get any offers or thought the offers were were too low.
Whomever bought the home got an amazing deal because the mansion sold for less than half the asking price at only (and I use “only” because it really is a great deal) $694,000. At 7,694 square feet, the home has six bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a home theater, a basketball court, gym, rec room, decks and a big swimming pool. Do you now see why the buyer got a great deal?
You’ve got to wonder what made Owens even bought all these places in the first place. What does a person need with, at a minimum, four homes, two in close approximation to each other? Further, where in the world is he staying now?
What a mess. If he has more, he probably needs to sell them too and rent a two or three bedroom apartment (I would say one but he has a gang of children who may come to visit and they need somewhere to stay).
Someone should have called your girl about this sale!
If you didn’t get the memo already, Hollywood has run out of fresh ideas. When there are no more fresh ideas, you reach back and start trying to redo a good thing. That’s where remakes and the blasted sequel come in to play. In the last year alone we learned that there would be remakes of the movies Sparkle, Annie, A Star is Born, Steel Magnolias and a third sequel to Bad Boys, all with black leads this time around. While some sequels and remakes can actually be better than the originals (The Godfather II, Toy Story III for example), most do a great job of making fans pissed (or worse, making them fall asleep). These were a few that had me ready to start a riot…or something of the sorts…just know I didn’t like these movies at all.
PS, Be prepared to click. I warned you, so hey…
Carmen: A Hip Hopera
Really? This might have been one of the worst movies of all time. OF ALL TIME! *In a Kanye voice* Granted, it was only a TV movie, but Bey, Mos Def, Mekhi Phifer and the rest of them should have known better. A remake of the classic movie Carmen starring Dorothy Dandridge, which also came from a Broadway play and book, Beyoncé plays the lead as an aspiring actress who uses folks to get to the top, including Phifer’s character of Derek. While it was a nice attempt by Robert Townsend, the acting is HORRIBLE, and if you were wondering, not just by Bey Bey. The music bits were a tad bit corny, and the adapted storyline just didn’t work. But I should have known the movie wasn’t going to be all that deep. Anything with Da Brat as the narrator, Wyclef as a tarot card reader, and Bow Wow as a jailbird (even though he was barely out of puberty) just won’t go well…
I’m sure you heard about the fact that the honorable folks over at BET decided to ban Nicki Minaj’s video for the track “Stupid H*e.” Depending on who you ask, that was an awesome decision to some sick of tasteless and mindless music, while it was a sexist and stupid decision by others. To keep it pretty real, BET is known for not having the best taste when it comes to music video choices, allowing the most ratchet and somewhat tasteless videos by rappers to get clearance but wanting women to stay ladylike: they’ve also banned Ciara’s sexually charged video “Ride,” and Teairra Mari’s pretty harmless “Sponsor” video. But all in all, I’ve seen a lot worse. We could run down a list of the very disgusting Tip Drill-esque videos BET has shown late at night with all the booty bouncing and credit card sliding, but instead, we’re running down some of our favorite stupid videos that we probably could have lived without seeing. If they were banned we probably wouldn’t have felt any real way about it (*Kanye shrug*).
