Watch Transgender Teen Win the Texas State Wrestling Tournament Amidst Controversy

Mack Beggs, a transgender teen who is transitioning from female to male, spurred controversy when he won the Texas girl’s 110-pound wrestling championship on Saturday afternoon.

Despite all the nonsense and controversy – Mack Beggs walked away Saturday afternoon victorious. Beggs couldn’t help but share the spotlight with his teammates however; who he revealed have all worked just as hard as he has and in fact claims that he wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for his teammates. 

“That’s honestly what the spotlight should’ve been on, my teammates. The hard work that I put in the practice room with them beside me, we trained hard every single day. Every single day. That’s what the spotlight should’ve been on.”

Mack Beggs has become the first ever transgender athlete to win the Girls Texas State Wrestling tournament, and the first ever transgender student to win any state sports tournament in Texas. 

Not really shocking (sadly,) but not everyone was pleased that 17-year old Mack Beggs won the tournament (or was even allowed to enter.) Beggs, A Jr at Euless Trinity High School in Dallas, has been undergoing treatments (testosterone) to help with his transition.

This of course has led some people to believe that Mack Beggs was given an unfair advantage due to the fact that he has testosterone injections.

Mack Beggs originally wanted to enter the boys tournament, however wasn’t allowed due to the fact that his birth certificate lists him as a female.

Jacqueline Laurita’s Husband Chris Laurita Found Guilty In Bankruptcy Case

Jacqueline Laurita’s Husband Chris Laurita Found Guilty In Bankruptcy Case

 

Teresa Giudice may not be the only RHONJ star to serve prison time for bankruptcy fraud! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that Jacqueline Laurita‘s husband Chris was found guilty of fraud in a years-long bankruptcy case — and will have to cough up $1.8 million for the suit!

A United States Bankruptcy Court judge found Chris and his company Iconix “jointly and severally liable for fraud” and “negligent misrepresentation” on Aug. 28, according to documents obtained by Radar.

Chris, 47, was also found guilty of “breaching of fiduciary duties” and “tortious interference,” and he was ordered to pay $1.8 million to Signature Apparel Group.

Jacqueline, 47, and Chris’ legal troubles began in 2009 when his clothing company, Signature Apparel, filed for bankruptcy. The Lauritas’ family became engulfed in the suit a year later when a court appointed official found that they were using Signature Apparel accounts to pay for private jets and other luxuries. Chris’ brother Joseph and sister-in-law Adeline settled their portion of the case in 2014, but he and his other brother Anthony continued to pursue the case in court.

But, Chris and Jacqueline have continued to struggle with their finances throughout the court proceedings, and they were even accused of owing over $290,000 in legal fees to their former bankruptcy case attorneys. Their case was stalled as a result.

Jacqueline was also listed as owing nearly $340,000 in taxes last year, and the couple was forced to place their Franklin Lakes home on the market earlier this month after nearly saving it from foreclosure last year.

Unfortunately the mom-of-three won’t be getting a RHONJ paycheck to help her this season, as she was axed from the season 8 of the show.

Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church Parking Lot Bone-Dry 24 Hours Ago … Why the Delay?

Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church Parking Lot Bone-Dry 24 Hours Ago … Why the Delay?

Joel Osteen‘s church finally opened to Houston evacuees Tuesday morning, but several videos make it seem like they could have provided relief much earlier.

A local resident shot this video Monday at 7 AM inside one of Lakewood Church‘s underground parking areas … and it’s damn near bone-dry. The resident acknowledges the lot was flooded over the weekend when Hurricane Harvey was at its worst.

On Monday, Lakewood officials said the church was closed due to severe flooding — but fact is there was no outside evidence of that more than 24 hours ago. Plus, witnesses tell us church staffers and security were on the grounds Monday.

The church released photos showing flooding on Sunday evening into Monday morning … near the lower level entrances of the building.

The question: why the delay in opening the doors?

In any event, the first evacuees started arriving at Lakewood Tuesday around 12:30 PM local time.
