While Pinto, who can next be seen under the direction of Woody Allen, says of her journey, “Now I think that the fruit of the struggle ends up being the sweetest taste possible.

Los Alamitos Mayor Resigns After Emailing White House Watermelon Photo

Dean Grose, Mayor of Orange County’s Los Alamitos city in California, plans to resign over controversy from a joke email he distributed depicting the White House with rows of watermelons on its front lawn and the caption “No Easter egg hunt this year.”

One of the recipient’s of Grose’s email African American Council member Keyanus Price told the AP, “I honestly don’t even understand where he was coming from, sending this to me. As a black person receiving something like this from the city-freakin’-mayor – come on.”

Grose claimed to be ignorant of the email’s offensive nature saying “Bottom line is, we laugh at things and I didn’t see this in the same light that she did.” “I’m sorry. It wasn’t sent to offend her personally – or anyone – from the standpoint of the African-American race.”

On Wednesday morning Grose found a smashed watermelon on his office doorstep and issued a statement on Thursday saying he will step down as mayor at Monday’s City Council meeting.

This reminds Blindie of those abominable Obama bucks with the pictures of a watermelon, Kool-aid and KFC. Not funny.

Video Virus: Kay Pettigrew’s Cover on Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme Song

Blindie’s a big Gilmore Girls fan and through Twitter we found this on former GG star John Cabrera’s tweet: singer songwriter Kay Pettigrew reworking the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song.

Not only does she take away the beat and the rapping, but she totally transforms Will Smith‘s original into a catchy folksy song that Yael Naim or Feist or Regina Spektor would make into a single!

Malia and Sasha may be the world’s most famous kids, but the First Lady doesn’t let them get away from their chores: making their own beds, cleaning their rooms and clearing their dishes.

“People want to make your life easy, and when you have small kids – I’ve explained this to the staff – they don’t need their lives to be easy,” Obama says. “They’re kids.”

Gimme Five: Things The Slumdog Millionaire Kids Should Do Instead Of Going Back To India

APTOPIX Oscars Arrivals

Now that those adorable kids from Slumdog Millionaire have gotten a chance to attend the Academy Awards and even Disneyland, it’s time they start thinking about their next career move -after all they’re not the ones who get to take home those eight Oscars!

Blindie has five suggestions for Hollywood’s new “it kids” -Tanay Hermant Chheda, Tanvi Ganesh Lonkar, Ashutosh Lobo Gajiwalan, Rubiana Ali, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail Sheik and Ayush Mahesh Khedekar -and it doesn’t include returning to the slums of India:

  1. Form a band. They could be the Indian version of the Naked Brothers Band or a Desi Jackson Five -plus one!
  2. Star in their own Nickelodeon sitcom. Come on, six little Indian kids speaking broken English is sure to get some laughs. Throw in Ryan Seacrest as their wise-cracking adoptive dad and now you’re talking Emmy!
  3. Star in a big budget Hollywood film. Call up Robert Rodriguez, we’ve found the next Spy Kids! And they could probably do their own stunts.
  4. Start their own fashion line. Considering most of America’s retail clothing is manufactured overseas, most likely with Slumdog-like child labor, the kids mind as well be in charge of their own label.
  5. Work at Disneyland. We heard the kids had a blast at Mickey’s hometown and since they did so well entertaining on the streets of Mumbai, so they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser in the It’s a Small World ride.
