Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are done for real

9:00 AMHey, guess what? We taped our first podcast Thursday. If you missed us a couple weekends ago on ESPN Radio, all good! Now you can hear Jill Hudson, Justin Tinsley and myself every week just by clicking here. Should be fun!

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian’s relationship has been a tested one. They famously got together, then very famously crumbled when Odom’s drug abuse problems got so bad that he nearly died after a bender in Nevada. He was found unconscious in a brothel, which tends to be a problem as far as marriages go. But to her credit she stuck by him, officially, even though she dated others in the meantime because he had issues, obviously. Well, now, she’s trying to end it for real. They have a prenuptial agreement, if you were wondering.

New details have emerged in the shooting incident at a T.I. concert in New York. The NYPD has released a surveillance video from the scene, and it strongly appears that rapper Troy Ave is involved. As in, it looks like he was the one doing the shooting. One person died and he shot himself in the leg, by the way. As important, this is such a bad look on the ground for NYC hip-hop. The police have been looking for any reason they can find to shut down live shows there and this only helps their cause. ABC’s News’ Meghan Keneally, Aaron Katersky and David Caplan report.

We told you Thursday about the 6-year-old trying to spell his way to fame. Alas, he wasn’t the one who made it to the top. The two who did however end up winning the title engaged in a pretty epic battle. And at one point, some VERY serious shade was thrown right there on stage. Let’s just say that if someone were clapping in my face at that age, best believe I would most definitely be clapping back. I hope these two end up being friends for life. Anyways, did you ever wonder how they pick the words for the spelling bee? FiveThirtyEight’s Oliver Roeder explains.

Ray Rice will probably never play in the NFL again. But that doesn’t mean he can’t have some level of impact in the league. Two years ago, when a video of him punching his then-fiancee while in an elevator went public, Rice was effectively blackballed from the league. He did gain some cash from a wrongful termination lawsuit, but it was clear that regardless of his production no one was going to give the running back another chance. Now, however, he’s back with the Ravens, albeit in a different role. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley details Rice’s latest endeavor.

But to her credit she stuck by him, officially, even though she dated others in the meantime because he had issues, obviously. Well, now, she’s trying to end it for real. They have a prenuptial agreement, if you were wondering.

New details have emerged in the shooting incident at a T.I. concert in New York. The NYPD has released a surveillance video from the scene, and it strongly appears that rapper Troy Ave is involved. As in, it looks like he was the one doing the shooting. One person died and he shot himself in the leg, by the way. As important, this is such a bad look on the ground for NYC hip-hop. The police have been looking for any reason they can find to shut down live shows there and this only helps their cause. ABC’s News’ Meghan Keneally, Aaron Katersky and David Caplan report.

We told you Thursday about the 6-year-old trying to spell his way to fame. Alas, he wasn’t the one who made it to the top. The two who did however end up winning the title engaged in a pretty epic battle. And at one point, some VERY serious shade was thrown right there on stage. Let’s just say that if someone were clapping in my face at that age, best believe I would most definitely be clapping back. I hope these two end up being friends for life. Anyways, did you ever wonder how they pick the words for the spelling bee? FiveThirtyEight’s Oliver Roeder explains.

Ray Rice will probably never play in the NFL again. But that doesn’t mean he can’t have some level of impact in the league. Two years ago, when a video of him punching his then-fiancee while in an elevator went public, Rice was effectively blackballed from the league. He did gain some cash from a wrongful termination lawsuit, but it was clear that regardless of his production no one was going to give the running back another chance. Now, however, he’s back with the Ravens, albeit in a different role. ESPN’s Jamison Hensley details Rice’s latest endeavor.

Coffee Break: If you care about media, you should care about the battle currently being waged at Gawker Media. Nick Denton’s company is currently the subject of one man’s personal crusade, which some might call turnabout and thus, fair play. Alas, some see it differently. Particularly those who are in the media, who run their own sites.

Rihanna stole the show at Prince’s tribute

Everything else about it got dragged

9:00 AMHey, guess what? We taped our first podcast Thursday. If you missed us a couple weekends ago on ESPN Radio, all good! Now you can hear Jill Hudson, Justin Tinsley and myself every week just by clicking here. Should be fun!

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian’s relationship has been a tested one. They famously got together, then very famously crumbled when Odom’s drug abuse problems got so bad that he nearly died after a bender in Nevada. He was found unconscious in a brothel, which tends to be a problem as far as marriages go. But to her credit she stuck by him, officially, even though she dated others in the meantime because he had issues, obviously. Well, now, she’s trying to end it for real.
