President Obama Laughs at His Haters During Speech at National Action Network Convention
#TaniaOnTheScene - The 16th annual convention at the Sheraton New York Times Square hotel, took place just last week. I was given the amazing privilege to attend the event, take pictures, and post snippets from President Obama’s speech.
The events that took place had politicians, as well as leaders and inspiring people who got together to speak on different issues.
From gun violence, to women equality, to the role of media in crafting the social narrative, several topics were covered.
When the president addressed the exclusively invited crowd, I was able to record some of his speech, some of which he referenced minimum wage being raised to $10.10, reminiscing about his birth certificate, and more.
Take a listen:
Zac Efron Takes a Page from Kanye West
#TaniaOnTheScene - Zac Efron broke his jaw. His jaw is wired shut. It supposedly happened when he slipped in a puddle of water at his home. That’s Zac’s story.
Zac has been in rehab twice this year for cocaine abuse. He also had been dabbling in Molly.
In addition to the broken jaw, Zac apparently also suffered a big ol’ gash that had to be closed with stitches.
Maybe it’s true, but it’s a very weird story … slipping and breaking your jaw in a puddle of water.
We’re told Zac — who has been a hard partier for years — has been struggling to stay clean.
DMX Busted Behind the Wheel Again
#TaniaOnTheScene - Rapper DMX needs a professional driver to keep him out of jail — he just got arrested … again … for three offenses while driving at the airport in South Carolina.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … DMX — aka Earl Simmons — was pulled over by cops at the airport in Spartanburg, SC and nailed for driving on a suspended license, driving while uninsured, and driving an unlicensed vehicle.
A rep for the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport says officers noticed DMX as soon as he pulled up to the terminal — and were apparently well versed on his track record.
Pauly D & Baby Mama CUSTODY WAR
#TaniaOnTheScene - Pauly D and his baby mama are at war, TMZ has learned … and there’s a big fight over custody and cash.
Sources connected to the baby mama and baby daddy tell TMZ … Pauly doesn’t think the woman is a fit mother — he points to the fact that she once worked at Hooters. He’s also concerned because the woman, who’s only 25 years old, has another kid.
Pauly and the woman, who goes by Amanda, have filed dueling court docs. We’re told Pauly wants some sort of custody of his daughter — but the level of custody is unclear. Sources say Pauly has not seen the child, who was born in May, but obviously he’s looking to change that.
We’re also told the baby mama is demanding child support … and even though Pauly says he’s ready and willing to step up and take care of the kid financially … he feels like she’s treating the kid like a winning lottery ticket. Exhibit A … the woman recently posed the baby in a high chair that’s covered in $100 bills.
As for how they hooked up, we’re told it was one drunken night in Vegas … but the kid isn’t bringing them any closer. In fact, one source tells us they straight up hate each other.

Lamar Odom Surfaces Near Home & Looking Thin
#TaniaOnTheScene - Lamar Odom is wearing the stress of his marriage — and possibly his NBA career — falling apart as he battles addiction to hardcore drugs … and TMZ has the first photos of him in several days.
Lamar’s face looked gaunt when he was spotted Monday afternoon driving his SUV around the San Fernando Valley … not far from his home with Khloe Kardashian.
As TMZ first reported …Khloe kicked Odom out of the house last Wednesday when he rejected her attempt to stage an intervention — hoping to convince him to get treatment for addiction to crack cocaine.
