Little League sensation Mo’ne Davis took the high road today by forgiving a young man who slandered her on the Internet.

Joey Casselberry, a/k/a @Big Cass24 is no longer active on Twitter, but posted last week: “Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada.”

Casselberry, a junior and first baseman for the Bloomsburg University Huskies, was bounced from the team over the weekend after college President David L. Soltz said he was “deeply saddened” by the offensive tweet. (Bloomsburg University is in Columbia County, about 80 miles north of Harrisburg.)

Did City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson accuse his challenger in the 2nd District of being "the white man" having a "plantation mentality"? 

That's what it sounds like in a video posted over the weekend by Chris Sawyer's Philadelinquency.

Philadelphia City Paper is getting a makeover.

Next time you pick up the paper, you’ll see it has launched a re-design, front to back, for the first time since 2009.

Editor-in-Chief Lillian Swanson said the paper is taking a page from newspaper history in devoting a full page to a color comic. Swanson plans to invite a different local comic artist each week to showcase their talents inside the City Paper.

CBS3 Meteorologist Katie Fehlinger announced on air this morning that she and her husband, Steve, are expecting twins.

This is the couple's first - or should I say - first pair. 

Fehlinger joined the CW Philly's morning news team in 2011. This morning she predicts today will be sunny and breezy with temperature highs in the upper 40s and lows in mid 30s, and a couple of babies on the way.

NBC 10 Philadelphia has confirmed for me reporter Nefertiti Jaquez is no longer with the station.

When I reached out NBC said they do not comment on personnel matters.

A spokesman would not comment on the reason for it, but several sources say Jaquez was let go for reporting live, on-air the name of slain Police Officer Robert Wilson III over this past weekend.

CBS3's Robin Rieger.

In addition to my coverage of Dan Aykroyd, Christina Milian and Ethan Wayne (son of Hollywood great John Wayne) at the PHS Flower Show this past weekend, another familiar face is now gracing TV screens. Robin Rieger, formerly of CBS3, will be playing a news reporter in several episodes of "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," which launched Friday.

The comedy series created by Upper Darby's Tina Fey and her "30 Rock" producing partner, Robert Carlock, chronicles the title character's escape from an underground doomsday cult and her attempt to start life over in New York City.

Rieger plays reporter Carla Tuesday, who sometimes asks unusual questions of her subjects but provides good material for a laugh.

According to TMZ, Sylvester Stallone got to use some of his time-honored muscle when he broke up a fight on the set of his latest flick, “Creed,” during a shoot today in Delaware County.

TMZ reports that during the filming of a scene, Tony Bellew, who plays “Pretty” Ricky Porter in the film, dove out of the boxing ring and lunged at a fellow actor with flying fists.

Sources told TMZ Stallone and several others broke up the fight between the actors. Police were called, everyone was thrown off the set. No word yet if any charges will be filed after the incident.
