Brian Hoyer living true Hollywood tale with Cleveland Browns
“It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through,” Jennifer said — that is, the shit of an industry that’s exceptional at finding fault where there is none. “They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet,” she added. In reality, it’s early in JLaw’s career, and “the most talented young actress in America,” according to Rolling Stone, has as much professional success as she has men drooling over her — without having to diet — not to mention all the women who look up to her and want to be her BFF. Truth is, she looks like a woman who’s conscious of her health and feels good in her own skin. Look at her! Exactly where could she shed the pounds? Her face is filled with color and she carries herself with a confidence that rises well above Hollywood’s weight obession. She is a mega babe! “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself,'” she summed up. That’s the vibrant, foulmouthed warrior we know and love. Better than beautiful, Jennifer is realistic in both image and attitude.
Hollywood couple stopped by police, say they were racially profiled
“I had no connections throughout the rest of the league. That was the only place I’d been. None of the coaches I’d been with had fanned out to other places. No one really knew about the times when Tom was out the whole week of practice and I was running the whole team.” With that in mind, Hoyer (through his agent) asked the Cardinals to release him in the wake of the Palmer trade — and general manager Steve Keim granted the player’s wish. “I just wanted to get out of there quicker rather than later,” Hoyer said, “and they kind of did right by me. I’d rather go somewhere where maybe I was a little more wanted.” That place turned out to be Cleveland, the city where Hoyer sometimes attended Browns games as a kid — including the final game played by the old incarnation of the franchise at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1995, before the move to Baltimore (and name change to Ravens ) the following season. Once that happened, Hoyer said, “I really didn’t follow any football, college or pro. They didn’t have a team here, so I just didn’t get into it. I kind of got caught up in my own games.” Now, Hoyer’s performances and those of his home team have intersected — but he’s not getting caught up in the sentiment of the experience. Instead, he’s focused on not looking too far ahead, and compelling his teammates to do the same. Earlier this week, Hoyer broke down the Browns after practice and reminded them not to get caught up in their recent success. “You can tell he was influenced by his time in New England,” right tackle Mitchell Schwartz said of Hoyer. “He told us that we can’t start feeling too good about ourselves or looking too far past this, that we need to take care of this game, and nothing else is important.” Well, almost nothing: As fate would have it, Lauren Hoyer is due with the couple’s second child on Oct. 21, just as her husband’s responsibilities at the workplace have markedly increased.
“I’ve been stopped by the police before, but I’ve never been fearful for my life,” Johnson said on Sunday. “They need some kind of sensitivity training.” The Marion County sheriff issued a statement on Monday promising to investigate the allegations of racial profiling. Actors: We were racially profiled The couple, who were in the area after conducting an acting workshop in North Carolina, shared White’s account with freelance writer Krystol Diggs, who posted it to CNN iReport . CNN could not independently verify their account but spoke directly to Johnson and Diggs about the incident. Johnson and White say they were on their way to Myrtle Beach for a quick romantic getaway when they pulled off the rural highway and parked by a cotton field. Johnson said she had never seen cotton before and told White she wanted to take a picture. As the couple walked back to the car, they said, they noticed a police car with its lights on parked behind theirs. White and Johnson, who are both African-American, say the white officer harshly questioned them about drugs — he found none — and the cash he found in their bags. Johnson was the national cheer representative for the Just Say No to Drugs campaign in the ’80s. According to White’s account, Officer Shad Barfield told Johnson there was a warrant for her arrest, which she disputed, and the officer later recanted. He handcuffed White and then Johnson but did not arrest them. “After he told me that I did not have a warrant for my arrest, and he started asking me about drugs for the third time, I said, ‘Are you doing this because we’re black?'” Johnson told HLN. “And that was when everything took a turn for the worst. He patted the car, he walked back to his car, he put on gloves. The next thing I knew, he was handcuffing Dennis.” “He told me …
“We’re changing that.” Fernandez wants to target crime along Federal Highway and other hot spots; lift morale by investing in more training for the troops; and put more boots on the street. This year, 48 cops left the agency. Many were at the end of their careers and retired, but some who were angered by cuts to their pay and pension left for other agencies. Fernandez plans to beef up the force by boosting the budgeted number of sworn officers from 314 to 339 in the next two years. About half of Hollywood’s cops have less than 10 years of experience, Fernandez says. More than two-thirds of the 44 officers hired this year were rookies sent to the police academy. He plans to shore up lack of experience by sending more sergeants and lieutenants into the field, he says. The department currently has 28 vacancies. Another 24 officers are expected to resign or retire this year. To make up for that, Fernandez plans to hire 52 cops in the coming year. Above all, Fernandez wants his troops to walk the line. “We don’t want to see officers getting arrested,” he said. “It’s an embarrassment to the profession and the city.” Just six short weeks ago, Fernandez took on what may be the most ambitious task in his career turning around a troubled Police Department rocked by a series of high-profile scandals.
