Judy Duncan, Michael's sister, tells TMZ she's hired a lawyer to investigate the circumstances surrounding the change to the actor's will in April 2012, making Omarosa the main beneficiary.

Judy believes MCD was not of sound mind when he made the changes ... because as early as December 2011, the actor was not himself, slurring words and stumbling around.

Judy says her suspicions about Omarosa intensified when MCD was hospitalized following his heart attack ... telling us Omarosa was fixated on MCD's money when he was on life support.

Another thorn in Judy's side ... Omarosa has already sold a bunch of MCD's personal effects (watches, cars, his "Green Mile" director's chair, awards, etc.). Judy says Omarosa sold the stuff without the family's knowledge ... and she's pissed.

Wow Rev. that's not so pastoral!!!

Chicago Grandmother and grandson charged with murder of Grandma's husband

A Chicago grandmother has been arrested and charged with commissioning her grandson to kill his grandfather and namessake because she was “sick” of him, according to police.
Janet Strickland, 64, was charged with one count each of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm after her 72-year-old husband, William Strickland, was gunned down in front of their home by his 19-year-old grandson, also named William Strickland, as the older man waited for a ride to an early morning dialysis appointment on Saturday, March 2. SMDH!
Strickland was not present at her bond hearing on Saturday where bail was set at $500,000. She was being held at a hospital where she was being treated for lung disease and high blood pressure. The grandmother plotted with her teenage grandson to kill her husband because she was “sick” of the older William Strickland and wanted him dead.
“[They] discussed on numerous occasions killing the victim,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Jacqueline Kwilos during the hearing. “[Janet Strickland] stated numerous times to her grandson that she was sick of his grandfather and that she wanted her husband dead. 
She stated she wished he was not here and she wanted him gone.”

In  the days leading up to March 2, the pair considered hiring someone to carry out the hit. But the grandmother wanted the murder done quickly and the younger William Strickland resolved that he would be the one to kill his grandfather, according to Cook County prosecutors.
Janet Strickland allegedly allowed her grandson to take her husband’s gun and use her car to carry out the homicide. “When the defendant unlocked the door and let the victim leave for his dialysis appointment, she admitted that she knew the victim would be killed by the grandson,” said Kwilos.
Strickland watched as her grandson shot her husband six times in the back at around 3:30 a.m. when he exited the home they shared.
As her husband laid dying, the pair stole his casino bag filled with money, withdrew money from his bank account and went on a shopping spree.
Janet was also the beneficiary to all of her husbands assets went out and bought her grandson a used car, home and furnishings for herself while her grandson used it to purchase tattoos, cell phone and gym shoes. (Chile Pleeze!)
The grandson also named William after his grandfather, was living with his mother and siblings in Wisconsin before moving in with his grandparents a few months ago, neighbor Theolen Shears, 84 said.  The younger Strickland was arrested on March 30 and has been without bond at the Cook County jail in connection with the murder and his grandmother on Saturday they both face life in prison which in my belief would be just.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Porsha Williams Divorce getting Nasty

It appears that the divorce between Porsha Williams and Kordell Stewart is going to be nasty one.   
Allegedly Porsha is staying away from home for several days and when she does make it home she has to call the police for entry claiming Kordell is locking her out of the house because he has another woman there. 
 Kordell  is firing back  back saying  he only locks the house at night for security purposes. He claims the real problem is Porsha frequently leaves home for several days straight and sometimes comes back between 2:00 AM and 4:00 AM smelling like alcohol.
As far as the other woman Kordell has an answer for that too, saying, A it’s the nanny he was forced to hire because Porsha is “neglecting her responsibilities to her stepson.” 
Really Kordell, last time I checked that is YOUR son so whose ultimate responsibility is it, now that YOU decided to end the marriage, Chile Pleeze get somewhere and sit down.
