Camila To Star In “West Side Story”?

Can we just face facts & admit that Camila Cabello is having the BEST YEAR EVER?!

Seriously. A debut album packed with hits, two of the biggest songs of the year with “Havana” & “Never Be The Same”, a headline tour AND a tour opening for Taylor Swift, and now news she might be cast as the lead in a major motion picture……directed by Steven Spielberg?!

Yep! The rumor is Camila may be the lead role in the film, playing Maria.

IF it’s true, I bet you Camila nails the role and even gets an Oscar nomination for it. You know why? Well, because Camila has given us no reason to doubt her success with anything she does otherwise. That’s why.

Remember, back in April, Camila posted this pic of Claire Danes from the 1996 film “Romeo & Juliet”. “West Side Story” is a modernization of the Shakespearean classic.

Trump takes shot at LeBron James on Twitter

Update Aug. 4, 2018 11:52 p.m. EDT: Referenced in President Donald Trump’s tweet denigrating Lebron James, Michael Jordan is showing support for James. 

“I support LJ,” Jordan’s spokesperson told Yahoo Sports. “He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

Update Aug. 4, 2018 3:52 p.m. EDT: First lady Melania Trump issued a statement in support of LeBron James Saturday, in response to President Trump’s late-night tweet attacking the basketball star.

The statement regarding President Donald Trump’s late-night tweets about James was prompted on social media, as the hashtag #BeBest trended on social media -- referring to the First Lady’s anti-cyber bullying campaign, according to the Washington Post.

In the statement, Melania Trump said James is “working to do good things” and she would be open to visiting James’ new I Promise School in Akron, Ohio.

Below is the full statement from Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's spokesperson, from CNBC:

“It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today. As you know, Mrs. Trump has traveled the country and world talking to children about their well-being, healthy living, and the importance of responsible online behavior with her Be Best initiative. Her platform centers around visiting organizations, hospitals and schools, and she would be open to visiting the I Promise School in Akron.”

Original Story: President Donald Trump attempted a slam-dunk Friday night on NBA icon LeBron James, taking a swipe at the intelligence of the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Referencing an interview CNN’s Don Lemon did with James about the I Promise School for at-risk students, the president tweeted that James “was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon.”

“He made LeBron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Trump tweeted, making a reference to NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan.

Lemon did the interview with James on Monday, when the NBA all-star launched the elementary school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. 

“Sports has never been something that divides people," James said to Lemon. "It's always been something that brings someone together."

However, James said he believed Trump was “using sports to kind of divide us.” Lemon asked James what he would say to the president if he was sitting in front of him.

“I wouldn’t sit across from him,” James said. “I’d sit across from Barack (Obama), though.”

The ball has been in James’ court before. In September he called Trump a “bum” for rescinding his White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors.

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!" James tweeted at the time.

James had not responded to Trump’s tweet as of early Saturday.

Jacobs, 50, a small business owner who ran as a Republican, defeated Democrat Linda Haney. With 100 percent of the 89 precincts reporting, Jacobs held a 66-34 percent advantage over Haney with nearly 80,000 ballots cast, WATE reported.

“This professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious," Jacobs told supporters. "We were victorious."

Jacobs grew up in Missouri and earned an English degree at Truman State University, the News-Sentinel reported. An injury while playing football pointed him toward professional wrestling, where the 6-foot-8, 300-pounder starred as the younger brother of World Wrestling Entertainment star The Undertaker.

Jacobs and his wife run an insurance and real estate company in Tennessee, ESPN reported. He takes over his new post on Sept. 1, and has not ruled out a return to the ring for a special appearance, ESPN reported.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Meet Phil. A homeless man from Florida looking for a job.

Phil recently went into a fast food restaurant to apply for a job. The manager told him that he’d love to interview him & possibly have him on staff, but rules are rules and he’d have to clean up his  beard a bit in order to do so. Phil understood & left the restaurant, telling the manager he’d be back.

Phil didn’t waste any time. He found a razor & decided he wasn’t going home until he got that job. He began shaving right there in the parking lot, but the problem was that he didn’t have a mirror to help him see where he was shaving. Anybody that shaves their beard knows the struggle of shaving, even with a mirror…..so imagine doing so without one.

Enter Officer Carlson. The police officer was patrolling the neighborhood, saw Phil, and decided to help out. Officer Carlson got out of his car & immediately came to the aid of Phil and began to help him shave.

Best part of the story? Phil went back in, applied for the job, and GOT HIRED!

Longtime Iowa sports radio host Larry Cotlar dies in Des Moines flood

Longtime sports radio host Larry Cotlar, 66, was killed Saturday night after his van was swept away by a flash flood in Des Moines, Iowa.

Des Moines police said that he was swept out of his van, which had apparently stalled in flood water. His body was found several blocks away from the van.

Cotlar was a local sports radio personality and broadcaster who covered the Iowa sports scene for decades. 

He was named Iowa’s Sportscaster of the Year in 2006.

Several people had to be rescued by boat from homes and apartments on Saturday during a significant amount of flooding Saturday night. 

Six to 8 inches of rain fell in the Polk County area during a 12-hour period, CNN reports.

A few waterways remained in the major to moderate flood stage Sunday, but floodwaters have subsidized as heavy rain moves away from the area. 

Andy Garman, a KCCI reporter and Cotlar's former radio co-host, told CNN that Cotlar worked in Iowa sports radio decades, covering college teams and serving as the voice of Drake University basketball.

“There just wasn't anybody who didn't like Larry Cotlar,” Garman told CNN. “He touched people at all the schools.”

Cotlar was a recent survivor of prostate cancer and became an advocate to get checked, KCCI reports.

“The guy was overwhelmingly positive,” Garman said. "He'd had some setbacks, dealt with cancer and any number of things, but always had a smile on his face and always was ready to attack the day.”
