All three judges ruled in Mayweather’s favour and afterwards the American welterweight world champion confirmed that he was retiring.
He said, “My career is over,” It’s official.” He equals the perfect 49-0 record of heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano and retains his WBA and WBC titles, embellishing his reputation as the best boxer of his generation.

Christina Grimmie’s murderer identified
We have learned via TVline the name of the man behind the senseless murder of Christina Grimmie
According to a tweet from officials, the man who shot Grimmie — before turning his gun on himself — was 27-year-old Florida resident Kevin James Loibl, who came to Orlando with the sole intent of murdering her.
In response to a reporter asking whether Loibl could be considered a “deranged fan,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina responded, “That’s what it’s looking like,” though he stressed that any such characterization remains purely speculative at this point.
We have to ask ourselves how many incidents like will have to happen before something changes? For now let’s focus on the legacy that Christina leaves behind by remembering what a truly wonderful child of God she was. TeamGrimmie for life
Christian Singer & ‘The Voice’ Finalist Christina Grimmie Shot & Killed
Christina Grimmie has passed away at the age of 22 after being shot at a concert in Orlando

Grimmie and the pop/punk band Before You Exit were signing autographs and selling merchandise after their show at the Plaza Live Theater when a man walked up to her and shot her, Orlando Sgt. Wanda Miglio said in a news conference.
Grimmie’s brother tackled him. The suspect then shot himself.
“This should have been something that was fun and exciting,” Miglio said, “and for something like this to happen is just a tragedy.”

MTV Cancels Faking it After 3 Seasons
Some sad news for the KarmyArmy, shippers of Kiam and even Booper fans. We have learned via TVline that MTV has decided to ax popular series Faking it after just 3 seasons.
Faking it told the story of two best friends Karma Ashcroft and Amy Rudenfeld pretending to be lesbians just to gain popularity and end up getting nominated for homecoming king and Queen. In the mist of all that drama Amy discovered that she had true feelings for her best friend. The show was about self discovery, true love, getting rid of labels, and all the issues of high school life.
Faking it made history in its two year inception by introducing tv’s fiest intersex character Lauren Cooper played by Bailey De Yong. When it was revealed that Lauren was intersex (born with male chromosomes but has appearance of female) it opened up a door of conversation and acception to intersex individuals.
Perhaps the saddest part of this premature series final is that fans of the show never got to see what would’ve happened if Karma and Amy actually be came a thing. Show creator Carter Covington had this to say
That will always be my sole regret: that I never got to explore Karma and Amy together. I never got to look inward at Karma and have her question her friendship and why it’s so intense and her affection for Amy. I’m sad that I won’t get chance to do that. I felt like fans really deserved that and I’m sad they won’t get that.”
He went on to say
“My hope is that Faking It will be the first show that started what I call the post-gay era on television We always tried to approach the storytelling as coming from a place beyond coming out stories and really exploring the lives of all of our characters, regardless of their sexuality. My hope is that other shows will pick up from this move the ball forward. Audiences are ready for shows that don’t focus on characters’ differences and sexuality and speak more to our common characteristics as human beings.”
Because MTV owns the rights to the show it kills any hopes of a revival. As personal fans of the show its a sad day but we would like to thank Carter Covington Rita Volk (Amy) Katie Stevens (Karma) Michael Willet (Shane) Greg Sulkin (Liam) Bailey De young (Lauren) and the entire cast and everyone who had a part of this ground breaking show. Thanks for the memories.
Series creator Carter Covington promised via Twitter that he will reveal what was suppose to happen after the series final concludes. The final will air on Tuesday May 17th at 10PM on MTV
Melissa Joan Hart teases possible returns of Clarissa explains it all & Sabrina the teenage witch
It seems like revivals are all the rage these days. Girl meets world, Fuller House and even Gilmore Girls. Let’s face we as humans are very nostalgic people. We miss the things of our childhood, the things that made us smile.
It’s clear that producers and show runners are well aware of this or else why would they keep bringing them back?
Just recently Melissa Joan Hart was interviewed on the fab and was asked about a Clarissa explains it all revival or perhaps a Sabrina the teenage witch revival.
Hart’s response was simply “actually I have a meeting after this”. This sent the crowd into a frenzy and then she says “woah let’s back it up I just said meeting”
For what it’s worth I’m sure we speak for everyone when we say “HOW FREAKING EXCITING”. What does this all mean? Could we possibly b getting one of our beloved shows back? Perhaps the bigger question is which one will it be?
