Nollywood Actress Judith Audu challenges Linda Ikeji

Though Nollywood actress Judith Audu recently denied to Entervaganza that she is challenging Linda Ikeji for the lion share of the entertainment blogspot market, the contrary seems to be the case.

Audu’s blogspot is fast rising in popularity and seems on course to become as popular as, if not more popular than Ikeji’s highly rated blogspot. Just as Ikeji’s benefitted from her celebrity status as a model, Audu’s is also benefitting greatly from her celebrity status as an actress.

The only difference between the two bloggers, which both bear their names, is that Ikeji focuses on general interest news while Audu’s is more about upcoming artistes and food recipes. However, Audu’s too is gradually beginning to feature general interest news due to its rising popularity and it’s now posing competition to the more established Ikeji’s. They both wanna look alike somehow tho lol.

Relationship Advice - What To Do If Your Boyfriend Is Cheating On You With Your Best Friend: Ladies Can You Do This?

New America Policy May Not Favour 90% Of Nigerian Celebrities Who Plan To Have Their Child In America.

  The hope of Nigerian celebrities who plan to travel to the United State to have their babies has finally come to a halt, as the new policy may not favour 90% of them. The United States government appears to have tightened the noose on Nigerian pregnant women who have formed the habit of traveling to America to deliver their babies. The women employ the ploy to ensure that such babies become citizens of the United State in order to enjoy all the benefits of US citizenship. However, with the new policy being introduced in the US, Nigeria women who travel abroad to deliver their babies may now have to opt for other countries other than the US or be multi-millionaires before they can have access to travelling for child delivery and qualify for automatic citizenship. Most pregnant women in the past concealed their pregnancies during their visa interview or went for the interview with protruding tummies. But unfortunately for them now, women who are making such future plans may have the plans fall flat as the U.S embassy has got wind of the popular gimmick pregnant women use to secure visa for child delivery in the foreign country. Already, the embassy has outlined some conditions which have to be met before such a visa which falls under medical tourism category is issued. But these conditions will not be favourable to many. The applicant has to show proof of available funds of at least $140,000 (about N24 million) to pay medical fees; the applicant has to show proof of the need for medical attention in the U.S, such as high risk pregnancy and the likes. US Embassy Chief of Consular Section, Ms Carol Cox disclosed that it would cost at least $60,000 to have a baby in the US and when complications arise from the delivery; the medical bills may go as high as $140,000. Thus, fund availability, is very important as it is necessary to ensure that American taxpayers do not have to pay such bills, says Cox. ‘We owe the American public who pay taxes to make sure that those who seek medical services in the US pay for such services. This is essential because there are those who have the money and are not willing to pay. ‘It is very frustrating when you see a woman who is obviously pregnant. Sometimes seven months gone, tell you during a visa interview that she is just going to the US for a vacation,’ she said. This new law was obviously made to discourage Nigerian women from traveling in the bid to get citizenship for such children but only those who need medical attention and can afford at least N24 million for medical bills will have the opportunity to deliver children in the country.

Earthquake Felt Across UAE Today Tuesday April 16 2013 - Buildings Swayed In Sharjah, Dubai & Abu Dhabi

A strong earthquake struck southern Iran yesterday, killing at least seven people and injuring dozens of others, while aftershocks spurred the evacuation of thousands of people from buildings across the Emirates. Today Iranian state radio said a magnitude 4.9 aftershock jolted the same area in southern Iran. The report said it struck Bandar Khamir at 6:46 am and was the strongest in a string of aftershocks, following Wednesday's quake. Yesterday's 6.1 magnitude quake struck at about 3pm, causing tremors in the UAE a short time later. The epicentre of the quake was reportedly near the port city of Bandar Abbas in south-west Iran. Most of the damage in Iran occurred on Gheshm island, where 100 houses were destroyed in rural areas, according to the state news agency IRNA. Reports suggested up to 45 people may have been injured. As the shockwaves reached the UAE, witnesses said buildings swayed in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, where the tremors lasted a few seconds. In Dubai, companies along Sheikh Zayed Road evacuated their offices and the Civil Defence Authority and police sent teams onto the streets, but there were no reports last night of any casualties or damage. The Dubai International Financial Centre was among the buildings evacuated. "It happened all of a sudden, and we felt it because our chairs started rocking back and forth and side to side," said Alyssa Brown, 29, an Australian working as a legal secretary at DLA Piper in Emaar Business Park near The Greens who was at her desk when the tremors shook the ground. "The blinds started moving too. It lasted for about 10 seconds. Everyone started freaking out." In Dubai Media City, employees evacuated Al Thuraya Tower after the alarm was sounded. "We all felt it and then heard the alarm sound. I've never felt anything like that before," said James Noughton, a media executive who works in the building. Charbel Karam, 25, a designer who works in Emirates Towers, said: "Immediately everyone ran down the stairs to get outside. The security shut down the elevators. Everything seemed to be crazy, including the traffic on the roads. People were just going left and right. It was chaos." Mohammed Mashroom, director of the survey department at Dubai Municipality, said the epicentre of the earthquake was at Bandar Abbas, one of Iran's main ports which is home to a large oil refinery that primarily serves the domestic market. He said the magnitude felt in the UAE ranged from 2.8 to 4.8. "Tremors were felt all through the city but all buildings in Dubai are safe," he said. Jamal Abdullah, head of the civil engineering department at American University of Sharjah, said the earthquake was of similar magnitude to the one that rocked the UAE in Nov 2005. "This one was probably slightly stronger and lasted for a longer period of time," Mr Abdullah said. From Rolla to Buhaira Corniche, people living in high-rise buildings ran onto the streets. The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority building on the Corniche was evacuated as fire alarms were triggered. "I was on the 26th floor when the whole building started to shake," one employee said. "It was really scary and everyone began to get panicky. We're just not used to emergency situations here. The fire alarm went off and most people had to come down on the stairs. "Those of us who were on the higher floors felt it the most and felt really vulnerable. I dread to think how I'd have felt if I'd been on the top floor." In Abu Dhabi, employees at a building in Al Bateen felt it sway significantly for at least a minute. "It was very disorientating. Initially we all thought it was our vision but then we all realised there was something wrong," said Dawn Sanderson, a solicitor who works in one of the offices. "We all evacuated the building immediately. Gradually other people started to filter out of the building and stood around staring at each other mystified by what was going on." Another woman, who works in another building in Al Bateen, said: "I was very alarmed. I thought it was me and that I was going to pass out. The building was really moving, significantly." Angus McFarlane, the technical director at Hyder Consulting in Dubai, said: "London is more at risk of earthquakes than Dubai. In Dubai we sometime get tremors from earthquakes. "This is not unsafe. It's to be expected and the buildings are designed to cope with it. "Taller buildings will move slightly, but they're designed for far larger local earthquakes fairly close to Dubai. What's more dangerous in Dubai are local earthquakes because buildings under four storeys are not designed to resist small earthquakes.

Home Alone Actor Macaulay Culkin Mistaken For A Tramp & Homeless Guy

Macaulay Culkin is far from the cherub-faced burglar-busting Kevin McCallister we remember.
Health fears were growing for the Home Alone star after he was mistaken for a tramp on a night out in London’s Shoreditch last week. Smoking on a street corner at 2.30am with fingernails painted black, the multi-millionaire looked more like the sequel film’s bag lady. Sports journalism student Marley Spindley, from Essex, took a picture of his pal Drew with his arm around Macaulay.

Marley said: “I didn't recognize him at first — I thought it was some homeless guy who was scrounging a smoke. “We had a brief chat with him and his accent was American. It was only then that Drew asked him if he was Macaulay Culkin. Even then I wasn't convinced. I’m no expert, but he didn't seem all there.”

Fellow sports media student Drew added: “You would never have thought it was the same person who appeared in Home Alone. “We chatted for about five minutes and he said he was in London seeing friends though he was vacant, speaking very quietly and mellow. He looked spaced out. “You’d have thought he was a down-and-out, not a famous film star.”

Macaulay, who is over from the US on holiday, said when he was 14 that he was quitting acting after amassing an estimated £11 million. He married actress RACHEL MINER in 1998, divorced four years later and went out with MILA KUNIS for eight years before they split in 2010. He was arrested in the US in 2004 for possession of marijuana and Alprazolam and Clonazepam anti-depressants and given three one–year suspended jail sentences.

Why Ellen DeGeneres & Wife Portia de Rossi Don't Want Kids

Ellen DeGeneres is great with kids, but don't expect her to have any of her own.
Ellen DeGeneres's wife, Portia De Rossi, says the spouses are happy being a family of two. In an interview with Out's May issue, the Arrested Development star explains their decision simply, saying, "You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did."

"There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don't miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart?" she explained. "I didn't feel that my response was 'yes' to the latter."

But that doesn't mean Portia, 40, and Ellen, 55, feel like they're missing out. "So it's just going to be me and Ellen and no babies—but we're the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is," Portia said. "I've never been happier than I am right now."

"We really support each other in whatever we're doing and we're incredibly happy, which is why you don't see us in the press so much," she added. "There's no drama to report."

Mr Onyekachi Ekwelum Sells His 6 Month Old Baby To Pay For His Visa To Greece

A father, Mr Onyekachi Ekwelum, who sold his six-month-old son to raise money to process his travel documents, has been charged before a magistrate in court to defend his action.

Mr Ekwelum allegedly hatched and executed the act without the consent of the wife, but the lid was blown off by his 20-year-old spouse, Ozioma, when she could not find their son and reported the matter to the police. It was discovered that her husband wanted to abandon her and travel to Greece.

The Abia State commissioner of Police, Mr Usman Abubakar Tilli, who disclosed this to newsmen in his office on Monday said the police mounted a man hunt that led to the rescue of the child and the arrest of the suspects.

It was gathered that the young wife is still in shock over her husband's action.

Jay-Z, Beyoncé Taking Heat For Their 5th wedding anniversary Trip To Cuba

Jay-Z and Beyoncé were in a Cuba state of mind. Unfortunately for them, there's this little thing called an embargo.

The powerhouse couple vacationed in the Communist island nation last week to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. But little did H.O.V.A. and Bey expect that their visit would come under fire from two members of Congress who are now asking the Treasury Department to investigate whether they violated the long-standing U.S. embargo restricting travel to Cuba.

Florida Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Maro Dias-Balart sent a letter on Friday to Adam Szubin, director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control, seeking "information regarding the type of license that Beyoncé and Jay-Z received, for what purpose, and who approved such travel."

Despite the clear prohibition against tourism in Cuba, numerous press reports described the couple's trip as tourism, and the Castro regime touted it as such in its propaganda.

The Republican lawmakers said they were prompted to look into the matter since they represent districts with a high number of Cuban-Americans, many of whom have long memories of the Cuban government's alleged human-rights violations.

"We represent a community of many who have been deeply and personally harmed by the Castro regime's atrocities, including former political prisoners and the families of murdered innocents," continued the letter

The U.S. government bans travel to Cuba for tourism under the 50-year-old embargo except under certain approved situations that require licenses, such as cultural exchanges or journalistic endeavors. The Obama administration relaxed part of the ban in 2011 to allow "people to people" tours whereby U.S. citizens could go if they signed up with a travel organization.

However, many Americans get around the ban by entering Cuba from a third country, like Jamaica or Cancun, and requesting Cuban immigration officials not to stamp their passports. They also cannot use American money during their visit. Those found to be in violation face sanctions including heavy fines.

A rep for Jay-Z and Beyoncé was unavailable for comment.

Nollywood Actress Mercy Aigbe, Disgraced By Her Husband Lanre!

According to Stella Dimokokorkus, yesterday (April 7, 2013) a little drama unfolded in Lagos between Actress MercyAigbe and her hubby Lanre. This is the gist from the beginning for those who will not understand if i start from what happened.

''Sola Fajobi, that guy that organises NextMovieStar and Supermom has just floated 2 TV stations, V Channel and Oodua TV. So yesterday, he hosted Mercy Aigbe, its was a recorded TV Show for Oodua Amounmaworan (TV). It was a star studded show attended by Mercy's husband and friends.So slightly before the show ended, Mercy just vanished and everybody started looking for her including her hubby, Lanre Gentry.
After like an hour or so, the hubby forced the MC to announce that he was looking for his wife and when that didn't work, he stood up a with fierce look and began causing a scene. When it was obvious he meant business, they later took him to a room where his darling wife who has arrived the venue in a short black dress with her back bare had changed to a night gown!!!

Enraged hubby Lanre dragged her out in the night gown and threw her into his SUV and drove angrily out of the venue whilst shocked onlookers looked on!''

As you read this now, Mercy's car a Nissan Solaria is in front of Sola Fajobi's Troy Lounge in Ogba and not one word has been heard of what might have transpired last night.

The question now is ... why did Mercy change into a night gown in a room whilst her hubby was in the recording room watching the show being recorded?

Why did the couple arrive the venue in different cars?...To pose?
What could have happened? Was the actress in the room making a movie unknown to the hubby?
