News like this is a waste of  brain cells to me so I’m going to address this subject one time, and that’s it.

We all saw it coming … The inevitable implosion of Kim Kardashian’s “allegedly staged” marriage to NBA power forward Kris Humphries.

During last Sunday’s reality TV premiere of the E! network’s Kourtney & Kim Take New York, the professional basketball player and his reality TV star bride were frequently shown bickering with each other.

If it wasn’t for Kim’s lack of reverence, big city lifestyle, or expensive taste that must have caused her marriage to Humphries to abruptly dissolve in 72 days — the straw that broke the camels back was probably when the NBA player walked in on his wife Kim’s “nude” yoga session (Watch video here).

As Humphries walks in on Kim and her posse practicing yoga in the couple’s hotel suite — with a naked male instructor, he then exclaims “that’s disgusting!” and storms off.

Kim then berates Humphries for treating the instructor and her friends disrespectfully, in which he yells: “How rude is it that there’s a naked guy in my house when I walk home?” She counters back: “You are so immature, I can’t take it.”

I have nothing more to say about Kim, but what goes around comes around. And shame on her mom/manager Kris Jenner for exploiting and “pimping out” her kids like that.

By the way, Rob Kardashian Sr. called and said he can’t stop turning in his grave … Excuse me while I go throw up now.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor, today sentenced Dr. Conrad Murray to four years in jail — the maximum punishment possible — for his part in Michael Jackson’s death, stating that the doctor’s role in the singer’s fatal overdose was “money-for-medicine madness.”

Murray, who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, was chastised by Pastor for failing to express any remorse for the pop star’s death, and boldly suggesting in a recent documentary that Jackson bore responsibility for his own demise.

“Talk about blaming the victim,”  Pastor said. “Not only isn’t there any remorse, there is umbrage and outrage on the part of Dr. Murray against the decedent.”

“Michael Jackson died not because of an isolated one-off occurrence or incident,”  Pastor said. “He died because of a totality of circumstances which are directly attributable to Dr. Murray, not some mistake or some accident in the early morning hours of 2009.”

Pastor said Murray engaged in a “horrible cycle of medicine.” And called Murray’s treatment a “disgrace to the medical profession.”

Prosecutors described Murray as a deceptive and incompetent doctor who in complying with Jackson’s request to be given propofol to put him to sleep, abandoned his Hippocratic Oath and medical judgment.

“Conrad Murray knew perfectly well that what he was doing was wrong,” Deputy Dist. Atty. David Walgren said. “He knew perfectly well that what he was doing was risking Michael Jackson’s life.”

Prosecutors had also argued that Murray should serve the maximum sentence, citing his “lies,” “coverup” and “concealment.”

Witnesses testified to many flagrant medical missteps by Murray such as giving propofol in an unmonitored setting, fumbling at basic resuscitation, keeping no records –- failures that experts said directly led to Jackson’s overdose death.

As “The King of Pop” ceased breathing and overdosed under the influence of propofol, the doctor was allegedly chatting on the phone, and exchanging email and text messages. And in the crucial moments after he discovered the singer had stopped breathing, he delayed calling for help and lied to paramedics and emergency doctors, witnesses said.

Officials from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said Murray will likely serve only half of his four-year jail sentence due to a recent change in California law that allows non-violent felony offenders to serve their time in county jail instead of state prison.

President Barack Obama was campaigning in New Hampshire today, where advocates on behalf of the Occupy Wall Street movement briefly interrupted his jobs speech at a Manchester High School.

Just minutes into delivering his message, Obama was shouted down by protesters attempting to draw attention to the arrest of peaceful protesters at Occupy demonstrations around the country.

The pleas of the protesters, using the so-called “human microphone” method, was quickly drowned out by students who began chanting, “Obama! Obama!”

After the speech, as the president was shaking hands with members of the audience, a representative from the Occupy movement got close enough to  pass him a note.

The Associated Press’ Charles Dharapak was able to photograph the note which said:

“Mr. President: Over 4000 peaceful protesters have been arrested. While bankers continue to destroy the American economy. You must stop the assault on our 1st amendment rights.  Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out.”

Media Tycoon Rupert Murdoch was attacked by a prankster named Jonathan May-Bowles, a.k.a. Jonnie Marbles, with a shaving cream pie during a parliamentary hearing in London.

“You are a greedy billionaire,” the attacker said to Murdoch, according to a witness.

Due to the angle of the video, it’s not clear whether Murdoch caught the projectile squarely in the face, but it does show his Chinese wife Wendi Deng, instantly springing in his defense offering a bold smack to the jokester.

“His wife, Wendi, jumps up and smacks him about three, four, five times, like hard, proper blows,” said Max Beckham, a politics student who was among members of the public at the hearing. “She was going for it. She tried her hardest to smack him really hard.”

Murdoch and his son James was summoned to appear before a British parliamentary committee over a phone hacking scandal regarding one of his tabloid newspapers.

Catherine Kieu Becker accused of cutting off husband's penis

A Garden Grove woman used a 10-inch kitchen knife which was described as “very sharp” to cut off her husband’s penis, police stated, as detectives searched for a motive in the case.

The couple had been married for a year and half. And according to court records, the husband initiated divorce proceedings in May.

Lt. Jeff Nightengale of the Garden Grove Police Department said police are aware of the divorce case but are don’t have a clear motive for the crime.

“On the surface, we have nothing more than the divorce proceeding,” Nightengale said. “We don’t have any strong motive leading to this level of violence.”

Catherine Kieu Becker, 48, who identified herself as the victim’s wife, told police she had drugged her husband’s dinner to make him sleepy, then tied him to the bed. As he awoke, she cut off his penis with a knife, tossed it in the garbage disposal and turned the disposal on.

Police untied the victim, who was then taken to UCI Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery.

Becker was arrested on charges of aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse.

“You’re not just depriving a person of a member or portion of their body or disfiguring them,” Nightengale said. “You’re doing something that’s so egregious we’re not sure what’s going to happen: if they’re going to be able to reattach this or repair this person after such a violent attack.

Police said Becker and her husband, 51, were going through a divorce and that she told officers he “deserved it.”
