Kristal says her goodbye and it makes the editors cry

Okay Blazers, I’m so very sorry to be saying this, but this is the final ‘Pop Addict’ you will be reading from me. I will be taking that very big step out into the big world after graduation next week. But cheer up, because it will live on through the words of my fellow ‘Tator’ and celebrity fanatic, Crissie Elrick. I promise she will keep you in the loop of the goings-on in drama-infested Hollywood.
Before I depart from you, VSU, let me give you the lowdown in the entertainment industry. This week we have a Tiger who’s been beaten by his wife for an accusation of cheating, we have newlyweds who have finally made their marriage official two months later, and then we have a crazy couple from a reality show that thought they were welcome to the White House.
Apparently, Tiger Woods has been on the prowl and ready to pounce on the women who frolic the courses at an exclusive golf country club in Los Angeles. Just last week, Elin Nordegren didn’t find this accusation so funny, and let her rage out on both Tiger’s car and face. Tiger said he was in a car accident in his driveway, and his wife needed to break the window to let him out. I mean, how much sense does this make?
It’s an obvious fight between husband and wife, where Mrs. Woods had enough of Tiger’s infidelity. Reports say that after Elin heard about the numerous affairs Tiger has had, she scratched up his face, chased him out of the house with (ironically) a golf club, and smashed in his windows while he tried to leave, which then caused him to crash. As a woman, I don’t blame her; Tiger is just another man that bit the dust.
Lamar and Khloe Kardashian Odom have finally filed a request for a confidential marriage license. It’s nice to know that in the state of our economy, people can still throw an over-the-top blow-out of a wedding just for the heck of it. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about that insane pre-nup that Khloe got the benefits of, even for the months they weren’t officially married. Looks like she hit the jackpot with this one.
Crashing a state dinner at the White House must not be too hard to do. A Virginia couple and potential ‘Real Housewives of DC’ cast members Michaele and Tareq Salahi decided that they would attend President Obama’s first White House dinner whether they were invited or not.
The couple actually made it through a full-security screening for weapons along with all of the other 300-plus guests who were actually invited to the dinner. I guess the security must have had the day off.
The Salahis are only considered for the next season of Bravo’s show ‘Real Housewives of DC,’ and now after this little stunt they pulled, I’m pretty sure they can kiss their chance goodbye.
Speaking of goodbyes, here are mine from the heart. My farewell to Dr. Miller: you are the woman who has taught me all I need to know to be the awesome journalist I am today. Thanks for all the motivation and encouragement.
My goodbye to Ted: thanks for being the man who kept me laughing through some stressful times in the office and helped me develop my fabulous photojournalism skills. My sad parting from my peers, friends and journalism family, without whom I might never have gotten through school.
A special thanks to the rest of my professors for taking a chance on an unknown kid…
Here’s a goodbye to my favorite red-headed ginger, Francesca. You have been by my side through all the rough classes when I needed someone to proofread, when I needed a fresh eye on my designs, and even there when I needed to vent. Thank you for your patience, kindness and love; consider this a long-lasting friendship.
My goodbye to Danie, the girl that I sadly just really close to recently. You’re amazing and I’m so grateful to have had you in life; now hurry up and get that diploma and join me out in the test-free world. You have such a successful future ahead of you; make sure you remember me when you accept the job at CNN.
Crissie, thanks for your smiles and your ‘hey girl’ everyday, you’re the best. Ashley, thanks for your random hugs and jokes. Lee, thanks for your much-needed Bob Marley moments and creative design tips. Michael, thanks for your very appropriate sarcasm moments—keep growing that beard. Kenny, thanks for your wit and your rant-filled columns. John, thanks for your positive pick-me-ups when I walk in the door. Amy, I leave you my Opinions page—make me proud, I trust you will mark your genius on the Spectator.
That’s what college is about, Blazers, go to classes, learn new things, experience the parties, but don’t let life pass you by. Enjoy the chaos while you can, because believe it or not, you will miss it when the time comes to say goodbye.
