Lauryn Hill, O.J. and tales from the cells

Myron-Mays-160

WHAT'S HAPPENING MYRON If you were wondering how Lauryn Hill is holding up, I guess there is Internet access in the part of the Danbury, Conn. facility where she is serving out her three-month jail sentence for tax evasion. In a letter posted to her Tumblr page, she lets loose with some info on her experience and lets everyone know how she is doing.

While she lists some of the many people who have written her, Hill said there is no way to write back to all of them. Each of letters, however, has been received, read and appreciated, she said.

The 38-year-old singer, songwriter, rapper, producer and actress began serving her sentence on July for failing to pay about a million dollars in taxes over the past decade. She is due to be released in October.

Meanwhile, in a facility outside of Reno, Nev., O.J. Simpson has served about 5 years of a 33-year sentence and is now looking to the future. You might ask yourself, "What kind of future does O.J. Simpson have?" I sure did.

Although locked down, O.J. is convinced that he will be getting out of jail soon. In preparation, he has gone so far as to start lining up projects in hopes of reviving his acting career. Can you believe it? He does!

According to reports. Simpson is actually in negotiations to guest star on Charlie Sheens FX series "Anger Management." And, as reports state, the idea has actually been well received.

But of course, none of this will become a reality if he is not given another shot at a "fair" trial. In May, he sought to have his 2008 conviction thrown out due to the "incompetence" of his lawyer.

As I always say..."we shall see!"

Congrats to Comedienne Mzzz. Kecia

Shouts out to my good friend Comedienne Mzzz Kecia. She performed a one woman show called "My Life is a Reality Show" this past Sunday evening at the Buckman Theatre. This was her very first live DVD recording. The audience got an inside look at her family and close friends as she shared some of the most interesting details for her upbringing and background. He act only reminded us that we all have family members and even parents who are not perfect at all. However, they're the only parents we have and we cannot exchange our relatives. But we can laugh at them though. Be on the lookout for her DVD. It will be available soon.
