Black Girls Rock BET - It will be a night of awards and performances for the first ever televised “Black Girls Rock!” event Sunday night on BET.

“This historic partnership with BET marks the beginning of an empowerment movement for women of color across the globe because 'Black Girls Rock' all over the world," said Beverly Bond, founder chief executive officer and executive producer of “Black Girls Rock!" “Our girls are not being told how amazing they really are or how amazing they really can be.

TNA Turning Point 2010

TNA Turning Point 2010 - Moments ago at TNA Turning Point, former WWE Divas and current TNA Knockouts Mickie James and Tara faced off in a match that made it’s way all around the Impact Zone and was eventually ruled a no contest by the referee.

Shortly after it began, the match spilled out of the ring and into the crowd. After being shoved into a wall, the referee threw out the match as a double disqualification. Post match, Mickie and Tara continued to brawl, using anything they could get their hands on. The brawling beauties had to be separated several times by security and agents when all was said and done. Judging by the brutal ending to this match, I don’t think this is the last time these two will face off in a TNA ring.

UPDATE: Looks like Mickie and Tara weren’t done for the night. Almost two hours after their brawl, Mickie and Tara fought their way through “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero backstage interview. The second brawl ended with TNA Knockout Madison Rayne blasting Mickie Jam…

Georgina Bloomberg Injured

Georgina Bloomberg Injured - The youngest daughter of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was seriously injured when she fell off a horse during an equestrian competition in upstate New York Friday, officials said on Sunday.

Georgina Bloomberg, a professional show jumper, took a "severe fall" while riding at the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament. She was unconscious after the fall and suffered a concussion, and was later diagnosed with a fracture to her spine, a spokesman for the competition said.

Kenneth Kraus said a complete medical report on Ms. Bloomberg will follow an in-depth examination scheduled for Monday. "Despite the injury, she is resting comfortably," Mr. Kraus said in a statement.

"The Mayor is very concerned, as any father would be," Stu Loeser, a spokesman for Mr. Bloomberg, said. Mr. Bloomberg on Sunday was at the New York City Marathon, where he and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly held the tape as the winners crossed the finish line.

Jacoby Ford Performs

Jacoby Ford Performs - Rookie Jacoby Ford hauled in six passes for 148 yards to lead the Raiders to a 23-20 overtime victory over the Chiefs in Week 9.

It doesn't get much better as far as breakout games go. Ford opened the second half with a 94-yard kickoff return TD, made a desperation circus catch over shutdown corner Brandon Flowers to set up the game-tying field goal, and burned Flowers in overtime to set up the game-winner. Along the way, Ford also hauled in a bomb after slipping to his knees. Play-caller Hue Jackson gained confidence in the rookie throughout the game. It's quite possible that Ford could emerge as the Raiders' top receiver after the Week 10 bye.
