Dennis Rodman apologizes for CNN interview
Dennis Rodman apologized Thursday for comments he made in North Korea about a detained American missionary, saying he had been drinking and was under pressure as he organized a game with former NBA players.

The former basketball star issued the apology through publicist Jules Feiler in an email message to The Associated Press, a day after he sang “Happy Birthday” to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the start of the friendly game.

Rodman has been slammed for not using his influence with Kim to help free Kenneth Bae, the missionary in poor health who is being confined in North Korea for “anti-state” crimes.

Weekend Meme: One Million Moms Can't Deal With "The New Normal," Mariah Carey Finalizing "American Idol" Deal, And What Did Superman Have For Lunch In the "Man of Steel" Trailer?

The full Frank Ocean interview with The Guardian is out, and it's worth a read. Several passages really stuck with me, but I really liked this one about why he put the liner notes out like he did. "It was important for me to know that when I go out on the road and I do these things, that I'm looking at people who are applauding because of an appreciation for me. I don't have many secrets, so if you know that, and you're still applauding … it may be some sort of sick validation but it was important to me. When I heard people talking about certain, you know, 'pronouns' in the writing of the record, I just wanted to – like I said on the post – offer some clarity; clarify, before the fire got too wild and the conversation became too unfocused and murky." Words of wisdom more than a few celebrities could learn from.

'Basketball Wife' Jackie Christie: 10 Things You Don't Know About My Marriage
Scandal and infidelity may be commonplace in the pro-basketball world, but Jackie Christie and her husband, retired L.A. Laker Doug Christie, are definitely the exception to the rule.

The couple, who wed in 1996, have long been known for their dedicated marriage. For example, before Doug retired from the NBA in 2007, his mysterious hand signals on the basketball court (which apparently meant "I love you" to his wife) caused a major stir among professional athletes -- critics wondered why he was so public about his affections for his wife.

Their close relationship even garnered them a reality TV series -- "Committed: The Christies" -- which ran for two seasons in 2006 on Bet. The Christies, who renew their marriage vows every year, and also wrote two books together, including 2007's No Ordinary Love and Luv-Pons: A Fun Variety Love & Romance Guide For Couples, which was released on Valentine's Day last year.
