What’s all This Rodman/Korea Hoopla? PLUS Watch Footage of the Game

This is mainly for all the ladies who had been wondering what this Dennis Rodman hoopla is all about. I’m  a basketball fan and even a Rodman fan, but I’m not that politically inclined, soooo when I saw the NBA star going off (once again) with some guy on CNN, I had to find out what was really going on.

Dennis Rodman was in North Korea with other former NBA players for a basketball game against the North Korean Senior National Team on the birthday of the country’s leader, the infamous Kim Jong Un.

The American team consisted of OG players Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, Vin Baker, Craig Hodges, Doug Christie, and Charles D. Smith.

Kim Jong Un, an actual friend of Rodman’s,  imprisoned Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American Christian missionary who was  sentenced to 15 years hard labor.

Rodman, the controversial former NBA star  elicited widespread condemnation Tuesday when he suggested in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day” that  Bae had done something to deserve his 15-year sentence.

After Rodman apologized for his comments regarding  Bae and for flipping out on Cuomo, he then said it was not his job to address concerns about the repressive state of Korea or  lobby for the release of the detained U.S. citizen.

What was shocking, even for supporters of the American team to watch, was Rodman (on Wednesday) leading a singalong of “Happy Birthday” to the leader of North Korea, a man he calls a friend and a “very good guy,” but considered by many a brutal dictator who recently ordered the execution of his own uncle.

That same day, Bae’s family accused Rodman of “playing games” with Bae’s life. Relatives and U.S. officials have insisted Bae committed no crime.

In the end, North Korea won the game.

Fellow player Charles D. Smith later admitted that he felt the game may have been a mistake due to the Bae situation, but said he would continue to stand strong with his decision to play the game.

Justin Beiber may be Charged With Felony Vandalism

“No one listens at that age,” actor Mark Wahlberg recently said about teen heartthrob Justin Beiber. And the Beib has proven him right, once again. 

Justin’s neighbor (the same neighbor that claims the youngster once spit in his face) called Calabasas police on Saturday night, Jan 9, and complained that the popstar was yelling at him and throwing eggs at his house! …And for no reason, the man says, he stepped out to his balcony around 7:30 p.m. because he heard strange noises. That’s when he witnessed Bieber hurling eggs at his home. (Sounds like a piece of this story is missing.

The neighbor says he asked Justin what the hell was going on, when a sum of 20 eggs were tossed in his direction, called the Sheriff’s Department and cops took down an incident report. 

…Oh Yeah…And the neighbor videotaped the whole thing. Which has peeked the attention of the L.A.County Sheriff’s Department, who would like to see Justin charged with a felony.

According to TMZ,

And there’s urgency to the investigation … we’re told the detectives told the homeowner they need repair estimates by Monday.

Our sources say detectives are confident the estimates will raise the stakes to a felony.  In California, if the damage is greater than $400 it becomes FELONY vandalism.  We’re told the homeowner’s damage could be in the 10s of thousands of dollars because the very expensive Venetian plaster on the outside of the house has to be redone, and very expensive doors and other items were either damaged or ruined.

As for why the Sheriff’s detectives want to hold Bieber accountable … they feel he’s made a mockery of the legal system by breaking the law numerous times … the problem has been there was never enough evidence to prosecute him.  But there is now.

The D.A. should get the case next week.

Ben Affleck to Take on Batman Next

Access Hollywood reported on Friday that Ben Affleck is the new Batman, replacing Christian Bale. Twitters on fire about the replacement. Some think its a great move for “Argo Affleck,” as he’s being called after the Best Picture Oscar he received as producer. Yet, others just can’t see him in the role. We think it’s a great idea. The role of Batman is always a great move for the actors career. Think Michael Keaton, Daniel Craig and Bale. There’s always a bad taste in fans mouths when the new one is announced, but eventually, we love em! Great move Affleck!
