Top 10 People Searches – July 2011

Written by August 2, 2011

Another month, another list! Check out the top people searches of July:

10. Jose Baez – Jose Baez is Casey Anthony’s attorney. Here’s an interesting profile of Baez by AP, which describes how the lawyer dropped out of high school before getting an equivalency degree.

9. James Brown – "The Godfather of Soul" makes our list for the first time! An expanded version of the James Brown exhibit at the Augusta Museum of History has opened to the public. This legend definitely lives on.

8. Ames Brown – Ames is new to our list, but is not new to fans of “The Bachelorette.”  This “The Soup” clip summarizes his time on the show nicely:


7. Kim Kardashian – Kim has set a date for her marriage to Kris Humphries for August 20, 2011. Kim has also been busy suing Old Navy for running an ad featuring a Kim Kardashian lookalike. I guess imitation isn’t always the best form of flattery.

6. Chris Brown – Chris Brown will be performing during MTV’s Video Music Awards at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre on August 28th. He’s up for three awards. You can also check out his new song ‘All About You.’

5. Patrick Powell – Patrick Powell is the businessman charged with the murder of Kingston College student Khajeel Mais. His case is set for mention on September 16.

4. Casey Anthony – On July 5, 2011, the jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, and aggravated child abuse. She was found guilty on four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.  Anthony was released from prison on July 17. You can read more about the case here.

3. Barack Obama – Our President makes the list once again. The main hot topic surrounding the president is the U.S. debt crisis. Also, Obama’s 50th birthday is on Thursday, August 4th – Happy Birthday!

2. Selena Gomez – Selena Gomez is one of the leading ALMA Award nominees, which honors the accomplishments of Latinos in the entertainment industry. Miss Gomez also recently visited the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort (so jealous). Lastly, I think I mentioned this in the past, but she’s dating JUSTIN BIEBER!

1. Justin Bieber – Speaking of Justin Bieber… Bieber wins again! During a recent trip to Miami, Bieber was pulled over by the police for what they thought was an underage driver. That’s embarrassing.

Some people who just missed this month’s list include: Michael King, Carl Morabito and Ralph Tackett. Be sure to check in next month to see who makes the list!
