Retired NBA player “Shawn Marion” is like all of us, he eats samples while shopping!

I caught up with former NBA player “Shawn Marion” today as you can see he loves to strike a cool selfie pose.



Shawn Dwayne Marion (born May 7, 1978) is an American retired professional basketball player who played 16 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Born in Waukegan, Illinois, Marion attended high school in Clarksville, Tennessee. Before transferring to the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, Marion attended the junior college Vincennes University for two years. In 1999, the Phoenix Suns drafted Marion, who was the ninth overall pick and would remain with the Suns until midway through the 2007-08, season. The Suns traded Marion to the Miami Heat, who then traded Marion to the Toronto Raptors for the 2008-09 season. Marion was traded again and joined the Mavericks in 2009 and was the team’s starting small forward when the Mavericks won the NBA championship in June 2011.

Nicknamed “The Matrix” by TNT analyst Kenny Smith during the pre-season of his rookie year, he was widely regarded as one of the most versatile players in the league because of his athleticism and ability to play and defend many positions. He was also known for his unorthodox shooting form.

Meagan Good Nabs Lead In “Foxy Brown” Reboot “TV Series” latricebutts.wordpress.com

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @ https://latricebutts.wordpress.com/

Meagan Good just landed a new gig as the new “Foxy Brown” and her husband DeVon Franklin is executive producing it.

Actress Meagan Good just landed the lead role in a “Foxy Brown” reboot based on the 1974 cult classic film that originally starred Pam Grier. Meagan’s husband DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz will executive produce the new series. Oh, and Meagan, who most recently starred in FOX’s “Minority Report,” will also help produce the new series.

Empire co-executive producer Malcolm Spellman and Hand of God creator Ben Watkins will pen the script for the television series. MGM was behind the 1974 film and still owns the rights, so they’re in the mix as well.

The reboot has landed at Hulu for development and the 35-year-old actress will play the iconic role of Foxy Brown.

In the film, Foxy kicks a** as she seeks revenge on a drug gang who was responsible for the death of her boyfriend, an undercover government agent. The iconic character is responsible for influencing Beyonce’s character Foxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers Goldmember, the Undercover Brother comedy flick and more.

Kanye West is ‘profoundly depressed and paranoid’ as he recovers from breakdown in hospital! latricebutts.wordpress.com

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @ https://latricebutts.wordpress.com/

According to TMZ:  

Kanye West has been in desperate shape this week … paranoid and profoundly depressed, and he’s been dealing with these issues for a long time… Sources close to Kim and Kanye tell TMZ.

We’re told after Kanye was taken to the hospital Monday he was convinced people were out to get him, including the doctors who were caring for him. Our sources say for a time he wouldn’t even let the doctors touch him.

Our sources say the paranoia has been building for months … obviously going way beyond the stated reasons for the hospitalization … dehydration and exhaustion.

We’re told the goal is getting him home Monday and under the care of his personal doctor, but it’s too early to know if that will happen.


Update! Kanye West’s health issues feared to be more serious than sleep deprivation and dehydration latricebutts.wordpress.com

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @ https://latricebutts.wordpress.com/

According to TMZ:  

Kanye West is in a bad mental state … and sources familiar with the situation tell us his hospitalization is far from over.

Sources say as of Wednesday morning it appeared he would stay at UCLA Medical Center until at least week’s end. We’re told some members of Kanye’s family wanted him home for Thanksgiving and felt it would do him good, but as of yesterday that looked improbable.

TMZ broke the story … Kanye’s doctor told cops he was suffering from a temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration, but we’re told the problems go much deeper.

A well-connected Kanye source tells us Kanye’s psychological problems are significant enough so that his insurance policy — which covers lost profits and financial obligations for cancelled concerts due to illness — will almost certainly cover the losses for the 21 concerts he’s cancelled. 



Kanye West’s Nervous Breakdown! Authorities spent 2 hours persuading Kanye West to be hospitalized, sources say. latricebutts.worpress.com

Wow! After seeing Kanye West handcuffed to the hospital bed and laying there helpless it really makes you feel sorry for him. “Pray For Kanye”

Did Kanye West suffer from a psychiatric emergency? That’s what one report is claiming, after the rapper was hospitalized following alleged erratic behavior. While Access Hollywood has not confirmed allegations about Kanye’s mental state, Kris Jenner did say at the Angel Ball in New York City that her son-in-law is exhausted.



I just found out I was a Singer in Japan “How Cool Is That” But I’m friends with a Japanese Actor “Tak Sakaguchi’ latricebutts.wordpress.com

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @ https://latricebutts.wordpress.com/

Me and Tak Sakaguchi hung out in the VIP Room for the after Party Event, after the screening of his film Be A Man! Samurai School. Some of Tak Sakaguchi other films are Versus,Death Trance,Azumi,Azumi 2,and many others. We became friends!!

Tak Sakaguchi is a Japanese Actor, Director, Fight Choreographer, and Stuntman. He is best known for his role in Ryuhei Kitamura’s cult film, Versus and more…..

So I guess on this wonderful Asian site instead of listing me as an Actress they listed me as a Singer..



Tak Sakaguchi was drinking one of Japan’s beer called Sapporo..

The picture below is of my friend Tak Sakaguchi movie poster for “Be A Man! Samurai School” This is a Japanese film. This film was written, directed and starred “Tak Sakaguchi” This was the first film he has ever directed.




However I’m very flattered to even be listed as a singer in Japan.

Angelina Jolie Reportedly Hires Real Life Olivia Pope To Handle Brad Pitt Divorce! latricebutts.worpress.com

Celebrity News By: Latrice Butts @ latricebutts.wordpress.com

According to People magazine, Jolie has reportedly hired crisis manager Judy Smith, who inspired actress Kerry Washington’s character Olivia on ABC’s “Scandal,” to put her spinning skills to the test and help Jolie exit her marriage unscathed.

“Judy has been asked to consult with those working with Angelina on divorce negotiations,” a source told People. “Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye, and she knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet.”

Smith, who began her career as deputy press secretary under former President George H. W. Bush, has “handled” a fair share of major scandals over the years at her firm Smith & Company, including rehabilitating Monica Lewinsky’s image, smoothing over Paula Deen’s racist slurs and advising Michael Vick post–dog fighting.

She also acts as the co-executive producer on “Scandal” and lends her technical expertise when needed.

But Brangelina could be her toughest case to date, considering the high-profile nature of the split and how things for the couple continue to go from bad to worse.

After news broke earlier this month, Jolie requested sole physical custody of the couple’s six children. We later learned that Pitt was reportedly being investigated for child abuse after an incident on their private plane, but is now fully cooperating with the Department of Child and Family Services to put the issue to rest. 

Smith will be the latest addition to Team Jolie, which boasts the talented celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, while Pitt has retained the services of family law attorney Lance Spiegel. Negotiations between the two are reportedly underway, and if our guesstimates are correct, this could be over within the week.

It’s been handled.
