As Tammy Wynette sang … DIVORCE.
TMZ is reporting that power Country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting a divorce. How unfortunate. After just 4 short years of marriage, their marriage is over. According to reports, Lambert will get the family home in Nashville, Tennessee while Shelton will keep their ranch in Oklahoma. In a statement released to the AP stated, ”This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
The love story of Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert: It all starts out with the best of intentions and then it gets complicated …

U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson’s (D-FL, Orlando) War on Women … Grayson Accused of Domestic Violence, Wife Files Protective Injunction Against Him
Alan Grayson going after the wife battery vote in Florida … Who is conducting the War on Women, eh?
US Representative Alan Grayson (D-FL) accused of domestic violence by his estranged wife, Lolita Grayson. A Florida judge has granted a temporary protective injunction against Alan Grayson after his wife filed paperwork accusing him of domestic violence during an incident this past weekend. The injunction signed Monday will remain in effect at least until a scheduled appearance before a judge March 20. Alan Grayson denies the allegations; however, photos filed by Lolita Grayson’s attorneys with the petition show large bruises to her left leg and left shoulder.
A judge has granted a temporary protective injunction against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson after his wife filed paperwork accusing the Orlando congressman of shoving and injuring her during an incident this past weekend.
Lolita Grayson’s petition for the injunction, dated Monday, says her husband pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road near Windermere.
In a statement, Alan Grayson’s press secretary, Lauren Doney, wrote that the allegations “are absolutely false, completely unfounded, and clearly designed to vilify and harm Congressman Grayson.”
“Congressman Grayson firmly denies Ms. Grayson’s frivolous accusations,” the statement said.
The incident comes just less than two months after Lolita Grayson filed a divorce petition stating that their marriage of nearly 24 years was “irretrievably broken.”
Alan Grayson accuses his wife of initiated the violence and get this, claims Lolita Grayson has become “increasingly erratic” since filing for divorce. HA, that’s rich, Alan Grayson accusing anyone of acting erratic. Because Grayson has never acted erratically, has he … “DIE QUICKLY”.
In the statement released by his office, Alan Grayson said his wife initiated the violence.
“Sadly, it was Ms. Grayson who physically attacked the Congressman as he attempted to visit with his children. He did not respond to Ms. Grayson’s violent assault,” the statement said.
It added that Lolita Grayson has become “increasingly erratic” since filing for divorce, and her husband “is deeply concerned by her recent behavior and is profoundly pained by her accusations.”
The folks at Legal Insurrection make a great comparison and point, ‘Alan Grayson entitled to same presumption of innocence as George Zimmerman.’ Touche.
We are also reminded by The Gateway Pundit of Grayson’s other past erratic comments regarding women, “This is the same Democrat who called a female Obama official a K-Street whore.”
George Zimmerman is back in the news.
Police answered a 911 call from Shellie Zimmerman on Monday afternoon in Lake Mary, FL during which she said her estranged husband George Zimmerman had threatened her and her father with a weapon. Officers detained George Zimmerman but never arrested him, police said. Detectives later came to the home to interview him. Initially it was alleged that George Zimmerman had used a gun to threaten his wife; however, it was later determined by police that he had not. The police are now saying that there was no gun involved and are questioning the wife’s statements. Just recently, Shellie Zimmerman took a plea deal and admitted to a lesser charge of perjury rather than face a felony.
George and Shellie Zimmerman are currently going through a divorce which might explained the heightened tensions between the two.
According to accounts, no charges have been filed against George Zimmerman for allegedly threatening his wife Shelley.
According to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell, Shellie Zimmerman called 911 claiming George Zimmerman had a gun and was making threats.
“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying ‘step closer’ and he’s just threatening all of us,” Shellie Zimmerman said in the 911 call, adding that George Zimmerman was “trying to shut the garage door” on her.
“He punched my dad in the nose, my dad has a mark on the nose. I saw his glasses were on the floor,” Shellie Zimmerman said in the call. “He then accosted my father then took my iPad out of my hands. He then smashed it and cut it with a pocketknife, and there is a Lake Mary city worker across the street that I believe saw all of it.”
The 911 call was placed after a shoving match between Shellie’s father and her now estranged husband, George. The couple crossed paths while moving things out of their home.
His defense attorney Mark O’Mara said “emotions are running very, very high” between George and Shellie Zimmerman, and “nobody should be facing charges” in Monday’s incident.
“They need to just sort of stay away from each other, keep things cool and work through their attorneys,” he said.
Although Shellie Zimmerman’s parents own the house, O’Mara told reporters that only George Zimmerman lives there. Shellie moved out, and they had an agreement that she would take her belongings Saturday. But she and her father returned unexpectedly Monday, O’Mara said.
“I think everybody got out of hand. There was touching, pushing,” O’Mara said. It was a case of emotions boiling over, he said.
D-I-V-O-R-C-E, Say it isn’t so, BSNBC, I mean MSNBC.com is no longer … The heck with Tom-Cat’s divorce, this one is a bit more important and has greater ramifications, especially in the on-line news industry.
After 16 years of Internet marriage, Microsoft and NBC have finally divorced, the result is the dissolving of MSNBC.com which will become the artist formally known as BSNBC. Actually, the new on-line media outlet will become NBCNews.com and will moved its operations from the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA to NBC News’ longtime home in New York. Microsoft will receive about $300,000,000 for its remaining shares.
Microsoft is pulling out of the joint venture that owned MSNBC.com, freeing the world’s largest software maker to build its own online news service.
The breakup announced late Sunday dissolves the final shreds of a 16-year marriage between Microsoft Corp. and NBC News, which is now owned by Comcast Corp. The relationship began to unwind in 2005 when Microsoft sold its stake in MSNBC’s cable TV channel to NBC.
NBC is buying Microsoft’s 50 percent interest in the MSNBC website for an undisclosed amount. MSNBC.com will be rebranded as NBCNews.com, and readers who logged into MSNBC.com late Sunday were automatically redirected to NBCNews.com.
Tammy Wynette – DIVORCE
Microsoft will no longer be obligated to contractual obligations with NBC and will now be able to pursue building its own online news service. As reported at the WAPO, Microsoft had grown extremely frustrated as they were required to exclusive MSNBC, liberal, moonbat content.
The inherent constraints of being locked into a joint venture sometimes handcuffed Microsoft and NBC.
Microsoft, in particular, had grown frustrated by contract terms requiring it to exclusively feature MSNBC.com content on its own websites. That exasperation was exacerbated by the MSNBC cable channel’s strategy to counter Fox News Channel’s appeal to conservative viewers by tailoring its programming for an audience with a liberal viewpoint.
The strategy fed a perception that material from MSNBC’s website was politically slanted, too.
Maverick Crashes & Burns as Katie Holmes Has Lost that Loving Feeling … Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes Divorcing
Tom Cruise no longer Katie Holme’s ‘Top Gun’.
Say it isn’t so … Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are headed to splitsville. 33 year old Katie Holmes has filed for divorce in New York on citing “irreconcilable differences.” According to TMZ, Tom Cruise was blindsided by the news. How could Cruise have been surprised by the news, didn’t he star in the movie ‘Minority Report’ where they prevented crimes from happening before they actually occurred? Hmm, this is interesting, looks like it may be a “War of the Worlds’, as Holmes has asked for sole legal custody of their 6 year old daughter, Suri. Something must be amiss and not amicable split.
We know Katie filed the divorce docs in New York on June 28, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She is asking for sole legal custody and “primary residential custody” of the couple’s 6-year-old daughter, Suri.
We also know Katie is asking for a “suitable amount” of child support .. this according to the divorce docs.
Katie also asks for a division of property in her divorce docs, although we know there was a significant prenup that is based on California law. Katie makes no mention of the prenup in her filing.
We’re told Tom is “very sad” and “did not see this coming.” He was spotted wearing his wedding ring just this week while filming in Iceland. Interestingly, Katie also wore her ring this week.
CNN GOP DEBATE: Newt Gingrich Slams CNN & Anchor John King for Opening Debate With “Ex Wife Open Marriage Question” … To the Roar of the Crowd & Standing Ovation!
MEDIA BIAS AND DOUBLE STANDARD …
In what is just another example of despicable liberal media bias, CNN and moderator John King began last night’s South Carolina debate with a question to Newt Gingrich regarding the story that his ex-wife accused him of wanting an open marriage. UNREAL. Newt Gingrich responded, “I am frankly astounded that CNN would take trash like that and use it to open a presidential debate.” Gingrich went on to say, “I am tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans,” to the roar of the crowd and a standing ovation.
VIDEO Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit
“I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office. And I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that,” Gingrich said, prompting a standing ovation from the crowd.
“I am frankly astounded that CNN would take trash like that and use it to open a presidential debate,” Gingrich added.
The MSM is obviously more concerned with gotcha ratings moments and ambush journalism against any one running for President not named Barack Obama. Remember when the MSM used to say that Clinton-Lewinsky was a personal matter? Later in the debate Newt challenged Obama to a 3 hour Lincoln Douglas debate stating, that he would allow Obama to use his teleprompter, “I’ll rely on knowledge.” NICE!
If Newt Gingrich winds up winning the SC primary, he can thank his two strong recent debates and the MSM bias overplaying their hand. With one day to go before the primary, Newt is in the lead.
WOW, talk about a hole in one … or is it a hole in 750,000.
The divorce settlement between golfer, cheat, slut puppy Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren is being reported at $750 million. Tiger Woods promises not to bring his trampy girl friends around the children and Elin will keep silent regarding Woods, one, two, five, ten, seventeen affairs. What is interesting is the clause in the settlement regarding not having Tiger bring woman around their children unless he is married or engaged. Does it sound like Elin thinks that Tiger’s “tom-catting” ways are behind him? She obviously never accepted his apology. Does not seem so.
Was it worth it Tiger?
He can bring a new flame into their lives only if he has MARRIED her.
In return, former wife ELIN NORDEGREN, 30, gets the biggest payout ever seen in a celebrity divorce.
But she can NEVER publicly speak out over his flings with socialite RACHEL UCHITEL, reality star JAIMEE GRUBBS, porn queen JOSLYN JAMES and up to 17 others, who will work out costing him £25million each.
It would seem that Tiger Woods main concern is keeping Elin Nordegren silent and preventing her from doing interviews and tell all books regarding Woods’ sexual exploits and affairs after he attempts to rebuild his reputation.
“Tiger’s main fear is her telling her story after he’s rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter.”
“The price of the huge sum is her silence: no interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life – even if Tiger dies first – or she’ll lose the lot.”
Rebuild his reputation? REALLY? Does anyone really think after all this that Woods is going to be ever able to completely recover? Hell, I like golf like the next person and am amazed at Tiger’s talent; however, I can never look at him in the same light.
