The wrong organization?


Mariah Carey hid pregnant body from hubby Cannon

Carey is the latest celebrity to become a spokeswoman for Jenny, following “Dreamgirls” actress and singer Jennifer Hudson and former “Cheers” star Kirstie Alley.

Your story about Mariah Carey incorrectly cites Jennifer Hudson as a spokesperson for Jenny. She is the spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

Check your facts.


Yes. We corrected: GBU Editor

It’s his wife… It’s his sister…


Donny Osmond dances to victory on “Stars” finale

He pulled his sister Marie, who competed on a previous season, from the audience to join the ballroom floor celebration that capped a two-hour live broadcast from Hollywood.

It was not Donny’s sister Marie he pulled from the audience.

It was his wife Debbie that he picked up and carried to the center when he got the trophy.

Animated objection?


Marge Simpson makes cover of Playboy

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – “D’oh!” doesn’t even start to cover it. Marge Simpson — the blue beehived matriarch of America’s most loved dysfunctional family – is Playboy magazine’s November cover, the magazine said on Friday.

Simpson, tastefully concealing her assets behind a signature Playboy Bunny chair, is the first cartoon character ever to front the glossy adult magazine, joining the ranks of sex symbols like Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford.

Mixed-up names…


Hugh Craig, Daniel Jackman sell out on Broadway

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, best known for playing big screen action heroes Wolverine and James Bond, have drawn record ticket sales for their play “A Steady Rain,” but it drew mixed reviews on Wednesday after opening night.

Um really? Hugh Craig & Daniel Jackman in the headline? How many people reviewed and approved this article before it posted? A severe case of dyslexia here. Hope you fix.

Who crowned the King of Pop?


Fans overlook Michael Jackson’s dark side

In the days following the self-proclaimed king of pop’s death on June 25 aged 50, reports of prescription-drug abuse have served as eerie reminders of the pharmaceutical cocktails that Presley was taking before he died in 1977.

I normally have great respect for Reuters, but I am disappointed in your lack of journalistic standards where Michael Jackson is concerned.

Jacqueline who?


Police arrest 32 people over jewel heist

The Harry Winston chain provided jewels to Richard Burton for his wife Elizabeth Taylor and shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis bought an engagement ring there for former U.S. first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

It is really not newsworthy of the reporters to make reference to ‘celebrities’ people today wouldn’t know or care two hoots about.  Please.
