This weekend was so star studded that I really don’t know where to begin but here goes nothing. The weekend started with super star comedian “Joe Torry” arriving Thursday for an all out busting gut fun laugh fest at The Comedy Club alone side his long time friend and sometime business associate K Chill from the rap group K Chill & Tetraz. Night after night, packed show after packed show the people kept rolling in and the celebrities kept coming to welcome Joe Torry back to the city. We all know if Joe Torry was hanging with K Chill it was some long nights and plenty of club jumping. With the recent spike to K Chill & Tetraz career due to movie cameo’s and performing at Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash 2015 Joe Torry was not the only celebrity getting the royal treatment this weekend. If you are a Joe Torry fan and love good old fashion fun and comedy but didn’t catch his show this weekend then you missed a treat. Joe was in rare form with all new material and he definitely brought the city out.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter will step down as head of world soccer’s governing body but only after the organization’s executive committee organizes a fresh vote “for the election of my successor,” he said Tuesday.
Blatter did not say when the election would be held but said it should before the next World Congress in May 2016. It cannot be held for at least four months, according to FIFA rules, said Domenico Scala, chairman of FIFA’s audit and compliance committee.
“The expectation is that this could take place anytime from December of this year to March of next year,” he said.
Speaking in Zurich, Blatter said the reforms he has tried to implement over the years have not been enough.
“I felt compelled to stand for re-election, as I believed that this was the best thing for the organization. That election is over, but FIFA’s challenges are not. FIFA needs a profound overhaul,” he said.
He continued, “While I have a mandate from the membership of FIFA, I do not feel that I have a mandate from the entire world of football — the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football as much as we all do at FIFA.”
Michel Platini, president of UEFA, European soccer’s governing body, has criticized Blatter in the past and told reporters last week that he had asked Blatter to bow out of the elections. He was one of the first to react to the announcement: “It was a difficult decision, a brave decision, and the right decision.”
David Gill, vice chairman of England’s Football Association, which voiced its support for Blatter’s opposition in last week’s election, said he welcomed Blatter’s resignation as “a major step forward for FIFA on the road to proper reform.”
Gill, who resigned from FIFA’s executive committee after Blatter was re-elected Friday, said he will consider returning to the post now that Blatter is no longer at FIFA’s helm. He never formally confirmed his resignation, he said.
“I simply could not countenance serving on the FIFA executive committee alongside Mr. Blatter. I respect his decision but am pleased he is standing aside and by the clear determination for real change within FIFA. This in turn allows me to reconsider my position.”
Caitlyn Jenner has come out swinging in her first major interview, telling Vanity Fair that ex-wife Kris “mistreated” and “controlled” her throughout their marriage!
At the time of the couple’s divorce in 2014, Kris insisted they were parting as friends, but it seems any good feelings between them may have faded.
“The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner…” Caitlyn told Vanity Fair in her new cover interview. “Then really around the show, when that hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn’t need me as much from that standpoint. … I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me.”
“A lot of times she wasn’t very nice,” Caitlyn continued. “People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money, all that kind of stuff.”
But Kris fired back, “He was married to me and he wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable… All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was pissed off.”
What”s more, Kris claimed, “At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social
anxiety. … That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end.”
And when Caitlyn went public with her transformation, Kris said she was stunned: “It was like the most passive-aggressive thing I think I ever experienced.”
Still, Caitlyn said that any focus on her gender issues as the reason for the split is misguided, and that most of it was Kris’ fault.
She insisted, “Twenty percent was gender and 80 percent was the way I was treated.”
