Move over, Kardashian sisters. All we need now is a sex tape. Tampa military groupie Jill Kelley and her twin sister, Natalie Khawam, are the new K sisters of the US Armed Forces — greedy star-lovers raising their 15 minutes to pornographic levels. Yesterday, Jill’s twin Natalie broke out of the shadows and into the sweaty dreams of men and women everywhere. Natalie’s sis Jill, a close personal friend of disgraced retired Gen. David Petraeus, skyrocketed to fame after being allegedly stalked and threatened by Petraeus’ unglued mistress, Paula Broadwell.
Comments: At least Paris Hilton is an heiress. I´ve never been sure how the Kardashians acquired their fame.
What a legacy David Petraeus leaves to posterity. If there are ANY "correct thinking" leaders in the DoD, he will be returned to active duty, Courts Martialed and when convicted of the various charges he is facing, be reduced in rank to at least LtCol, have all pay and allowances forfeited, and spend a VERY long time in Leavenworth Prison.
I guess what bugs me here is good ole double standards. We had a president who committed unspeakable acts right in the Oval office and he continues to grow as a left wing icon,who could have helped Obama destroy this country for 4 more years,vs. a well respected member of the military for 40 years or so and people want his scalp.Sen. Melendez is caught up in 2 scandals and he doesn´t even make the news.
Now we have this Elmo character who preyed on underage boys,finally getting fired but you don´t see a Jerry Sandusky firing squad going after him. He´ll just ride off into the sunset and may secretively continue on as the Elmo character.The simple reason is he´s an admitted gay vs. a dirty old white guy.
I´m not excusing what Petraeus and Broadwell did but I understand how it happened.Neither one is a serial pervert like Bill Clinton who possibly even raped a couple other women. He had state troopers recruit women for hotel room ventures and all this was ignored by the American electorate. In fact Hillary Clinton gets sympathy for being victimized by her husband,despite Bubba himself not being villainized.
Broadwell can´t hold a candle to the Fl. twins when it comes to being egregious,yet they aren´t nearly as demonized as Broadwell is.I mean e mail shagging a general who´s supposed to be running a war with our kids lives at stake,doesn´t even register with the media.
This is what the Benghazi scandal will be about to the low information folks out there. The burning consulate, the deaths of Americans serving our country - all that´ll whoosh over their heads. Skanky social-climbing twins? They´ll remember them.
RE: #3 - Agreed. However, I wasn´t aware that being attractive was a requisite for being a skank.
RE: #9 - EXACTAMUNDO. Look at the society/gossip pages...Kardashians on there EVERY day, usually multiple times. That doesn´t just happen...somebody plants those stories and those photos. The Kardashians are who they are because of their hard work (and Daddy´s money, as you say) to get there. As an aside, I shall forever hate Ryan Seacrest :spit: for foisting those horrendous people on this country.
I, too, was thrilled to see the whack job sister and Gloria Allred yesterday...it just had to happen.
What I can´t get out of my head are the husbands of these bimbos. Natalie´s husband chose the right course - took his son and got out of Dodge. Jill´s husband is a doctor and probably has a decent practice either at a hospital or in a group practice. Can you imagine being one of his patients? Paula Broadwell´s husband is also a doctor. I can´t believe that either of these men wanted this kind of attention, let alone the potential of ruining their medical practices. How in the name of Sam Hill can they be focused on their patients?

In re: #3, I don´t know...At about 1:15 AM as closing time approaches, after a couple of Tanqueray & Tonic´s I could see it happening.....But as that great sage and philosopher Mickey Gilley once said, ´the girls all get prettier at closing time´.
In re #15, spot on. Ms. Schlussel is an underappreciated dynamo of truth and enlightenment. IF a media outlet really wanted to investigate BHO, ther first thing they should do is put Debbie on retainer.
Are there three more unimpressive people you´ve read about lately than these three ´ladies´ (Paula, Jill and the other one)? If these are the kind of women our military brass think are ´hot stuff´, we are in a whole lot of trouble. Where is their judgment?
They need to focus on some real women? Surely everyday, beautiful, wise, caring, intelligent women with class, dignity and honor would attract them too - or maybe their wives?
Re 15 & 17 - I, too, cannot figure out how Debbie Schlussel can´t seem to break out beyond her blog. I saw her make a brief, remote appearance on Fox years ago but she provides more facts and truth in one column than an entire evening of O´Reilly, Hannity, and Greta and all their booksellers.
Have we ever been told how Paula Broadwell knew that the twins even existed, not less what they were supposedly doing with General Petraeus, that sparked Broadwell´s interest in them and her defense mechanism on them?
Re #9: no one should overlook Kim Kardashian´s very lucrative "leaked" sex tape, certainly the key factor in launching her subsequent "achievements." Same modus operandi as Paris Hilton, whose similarly "leaked" tape led to her reality-teevee celebrity.
WASHINGTON — The warning resounded through the 2012 presidential campaign. Massachusetts’ groundbreaking health reform, Republican nominee Mitt Romney said, would never work for the country as a whole. Democrats widely dismissed Romney’s comments as politically opportunistic, an effort to distance himself from the plan he backed as governor. Now, given the epic scale of problems that have bedeviled the rollout of President Obama’s plan, some state legislators, insurance and hospital executives, and others around the country are returning to Romney’s refrain. Was the Massachusetts plan, in hindsight, really the best blueprint for the nation? “They should have allowed more flexibility on a state-by-state
In what could be a scene straight out of The Thorn Birds, a once high-ranking priest will finally marry the mother of his child, who happens to be the daughter of a former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See. During his time as a priest, Father Thomas Williams officiated over countless weddings. This weekend, Williams, who left the priesthood in May after admitting he fathered a child out of wedlock, will be on the other side of the altar. The former priest will wed Elizabeth Lev Glendon in a private wedding at an undisclosed location in the United States. Theoretically, the
Ray Frazee said he can still remember the enemy plane coming straight at him as he stood on the deck of the USS Argonne docked in Pearl Harbor more than seven decades ago today. “It feels like you’re still there, you’ll never forget something like that,” the 92-year-old Wellesley man told the Herald yesterday. “One of my very best friends was killed that day,” he added, saying he notified the parents about their son’s death. Today marks the 72nd anniversary of the attack on the Hawaiian naval base where about 2,400 Americans were killed during that day of infamy in 1941. Frazee, a flute
LOS ANGELES – An Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett currently held by actor Ryan O´Neal is worth an estimated $12 million, an appraiser told a jury Friday. New York art appraiser Lee Drexler testified in a lawsuit by the University of Texas at Austin against the actor in which the school is seeking to gain possession of the Fawcett portrait for its art museum. O´Neal contends the artwork was given to him as a gift by Warhol and did not belong to Fawcett when she died in 2009. The "Charlie´s Angels" star left all her artwork to the university; her gift
WASHINGTON–D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray compared the District of Columbia’s lack of autonomy and voting rights to the struggles Nelson Mandela endured, explaining Friday that residents connect so much with the South African leader because “we have not achieved full equality in this city.” “When we can’t have the authority to be able to spend our own money, and all our local laws need to go to the national legislative body in order to be approved, when we experience taxation without representation every day, when we don’t have a voting member of the national legislative body, I think the people can
Christmastime can still be magical in the hospital, which the patients of Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health learned this week when elves rappelled down the side of the 10-story building. Dressed in pointy shoes and hats and decked out in red and green, the elves suddenly appeared outside patients´ windows to wave and smile. Meanwhile, Santa himself made his way through the inside of the hospital to visit with patients and their families and give out gifts. "Many of our patients can´t be home for the holidays," Melissa Sexton, the hospital´s special events coordinator, said in a statement. "Our
Jen Arnold, star of the hit TLC series The Little Couple, is battling a rare form of cancer. The Houston-based neonatologist, 39, and her husband Bill Klein, 38, are parents to son Will, 3, whom they adopted from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, whom they recently brought home from India. But what should have been a time of joy and celebration for the reality stars has been bittersweet, as Arnold reveals in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy.” Arnold says.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
