I know you all missed me the past two days, especially my haters who had withdrawls not being able to hit that black check button. The beer was cold and frothy so I just thought of all of you while I was hoisting a pint between 1:30 and 1:43pm. Meh!!!

American Idol Lawsuit, hmmm, would this be like the two Black gents that accused the Bachelorette of being racists because no black men have ever been on the show? Watch, we'll get the same thing. The Bachelor then aired with several Black ladies and all was well in the Reality world. Despite that fact that four winners in the past have won (WHO DIDN"T HAVE SHADY BACKGROUNDS) it's still considered Racists. What's next, the Latinos, the Jews and every other race that hasn't gotten a win in 11 years will also file suit?

If you're going to talk about the Kim-Kris divorce, Harvey, at least tell the real story. Talk about how Kris walked away from a $10 million dollar offer. Let's not just be a mouthpiece for the Kartrashian clan, okay?

Harvey's probably going to still be mad. he found out yesterday that straight men automatically flinch when you say "gay".
so he's changing the subject to blacks.
