33 yr old US man fathers 30 children with 11 women

At just 33, Desmond Hatchett (pictured above) has thirty children with eleven different women. Nine of those children were born in the last three years.

Desmond's oldest child is 14, while the youngest is just a few months old. His story/situation came into limelight after he went to court this week asking for a break on child support. The state of Tennessee takes half his monthly payments and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much because he makes minimum wage. Some of his baby mamas get as little as $1.49 a month.

Desmond, who claims to know all the names, ages and birth dates of his children, said he had four kids in one year. Twice. He officially holds the record for most children in Tennessee.

He needs to do two things ASAP. 1. Get a vasectomy. 2. Start a reality show.

Video: Will Smith slaps reporter who tries to kiss him on red carpet


Will Smith was making his way down the red carpet at the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 today when a Ukrainian reporter tried to kiss him. The actor, who was caught off guard, first pushed away the journalist before slapping him across the face with the back of his hand, asking, “What the hell is your problem, man?”

Moments later, Smith, still on camera, said that the male reporter tried to kiss him on the lips, and added, “He’s lucky I ain’t sucker punched him.” Very lucky! Haha

Was Will Smith right to have slapped the journalist? Please watch the video and share your thoughts.

Dear LIB readers: I found a worm in my chicken topper salad

A LIB reader sent in these photos. She went to a very popular eatery in Lagos (name withheld by me), ordered a chicken topper salad, and inside it she found a worm. Ewwwwwww!

Her words:
I found a worm in my chicken Topper Salad and I want everyone to know this. These eateries need to start paying more attention to quality management and assurance in their processes. I called the attention of their delivery staff to it who says he will escalate to the management but I am sure they won't even react to this. I don't want anything from them but I want Nigerians to begin to exercise some caution when eating out - especially the uncooked food. I have attached the pictures, receipt and video for your viewing..
If na America, this babe for don hammer o! Lol. Watch the video here

Dear LIB Readers: How much does the hubby really need to know?

From a LIB reader...
Is there any need to let your husband know how many men you had intimate relationships with before you two got married?
For me, I told my husband about the guys i dated in the past on a 'need to know' basis. If conversation geared towards that area or if he knew me when i was dating the guy, then i tell him. Aside that, i dont say anything.
A friend of mine who just had her traditional wedding last xmas was telling me that she and her hubby had a 'say it all' evening, where they discussed everything they had done in and out of relationships before they got married. even the relationships they have had after meeting but before getting married! What is the point really?
Wouldnt the man look at you as a whore (even if he doesnt say it) if you have had a lot of guys gone thru there? Could you put this out there let's see what LIBers think of it.
Please share your thoughts!

Nigerian Housemates, Chris and Ola, leave the Big Brother House

Nigerian housemates, Chris and Ola, have left the Big Brother House. In their Diary Session today, Ola told Big Brother that after consultation with the House Doctor, he would like to Voluntarily exit the Big Brother House. He said that he has thought about it and since the medication he is on does not seem to be taking well, would like to seek medical attention outside of the Big Brother House.

And as you know, once one housemate from a country leaves, the other must follow. I feel sad for Chris. But health comes first.

Buhari threatens bloodshed in 2015, 19 Northern Govs defend him

"God willing, by 2015, something will happen. They either conduct a free and fair election or they go a very disgraceful way. If what happened in 2011 (alleged rigging) should again happen in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.’’ Buhari reportedly told members of the CPC from Niger State who had paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna on Wednesday May 16th.

After Buhari made this comment, the presidency responded by saying Buhari was bloodthirsty and suffering from “combat withdrawal syndrome.”

And instead of cautioning the retired general, 19 northern governors yesterday told journalist that Buhari's statement was in order, that he only said it to keep the Federal Government on its toes in order to ensure a free-and-fair election in 2015.

So, let me get this straight, someone threatens bloodshed in 2015 and the statement is in order? OK!
