SHE SAID YES
Congratulations are in order for Amar’e Stoudemire who spent the weekend in Paris taking in the Watch The Throne concert….and getting ENGAGED! He popped the question to the mother of his three kids, Alexis Welch, with a million dollar ring. The 29-year-old Knicks baller proposed to his girlfriend of 10 years overlooking the Eiffel Towel
“I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place. I am so happy she said ‘yes,’ and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife,” Stoudemire told PEOPLE from Paris. The two are planning a 2013 wedding.
Grand Hustle artist YOUNG DRO has a track called “Maserati”, and the hook goes like this: Quote, “He’s the kinda person who’s gonna drive a Maserati / I’m the kinda person who’s gonna drive a Maserati.”
But as it turns out, Young Dro is also the kind of person who’s going to have a Maserati repossessed . . . because he CAN’T AFFORD IT.
According to a lawsuit, he leased a $134,000 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT in January of 2008. He put $7,500 down, and had to pay about $1,600 a month. But apparently Dro wasn’t able to follow through . . . because the leasing company has repo-ed the car, and is suing him for the 61Gs he still owes them, plus attorneys’ fees.
Dro hasn’t commented.
The producers of “Snow White and the Huntsman” passed over able-bodied little people to fill the iconic roles of Snow White’s dwarfs — casting big people instead — and a prominent little people organization is pissed.
A rep for “Little People of America” says the entertainment industry should be actively casting little people. The rep adds, “This means both casting people with dwarfism as characters that were specifically written to be played by little people … and other roles that would be open to people of short stature.”
In case you didn’t know — the dwarfs in the new movie are played by regular sized actors, whose limbs were either digitally shrunk, or whose faces were digitally transplanted onto little people’s bodies.
Calls to “Snow White” producers were not returned.
