Beyonce's little sister Solange Knowles writes (yet another) glowing Myspace blog about life with her son Juelz. A mother's love is a beautiful thing to behold, but Solange takes it a little too far sometimes. She calls him "the coolest kid ever" and writes that he "fusses if he doesn't have a cup of Starbucks coffee with his morning paper."
Wow, that kid is so awesome!
"I have been so blessed that my son is the coolest kid ever. He fusses if he doesn't have a cup of Starbucks coffee with his morning paper. Of course, that first year of not sleeping and just being dedicated to him had tough parts but that’s fine. It’s been a blast for me. A lot of people have doubts, but when you have a child I think it takes a really non-emotional person not to have a blast, no matter what age. I’ve heard stories of people who were 14 that had kids and basically snapped into it and got into the groove of motherhood. I think that emotional attachment, there’s nothing out of it that you could regret."
An Australian Tennis tv commentator infuriated tennis fans and offended African Americans around the world with his sexist remarks about Venus Williams derrière. Roger Rasheed, a former coach of Lleyton Hewitt, made the comments during a slow-motion replay of a match between Venus Williams and China's Yan Zi at the Australian Open this past weekend.
"Take a look at this now," said Rasheed to his co-commentators Tracy Austin and Nicole Bradtke. "Make or think as you will, ladies, but for me, that's a pretty good sight."
Former tennis champ Austin pointed out that Williams had more going for her than just her booty, "she's got her own clothing line.. and she brings more than just her tennis game to the court."
Fans around the country lit up the tv station's switchboard with complaints. Some felt the remarks were inappropriate during a live tennis broadcast.
NBC said there would be no action taken against Rasheed.
Queen Latifah is pissed at bloggers and it isn't easy to get the Queen upset. Normally the media treats the Queen well, but she points out that certain bloggers took things too far.
In an interview with Contactmusic.com, the actress-singer warns certain bloggers that she is "ready to take it to their ass.
"'They are actually starting to p**s me off. I haven't been brutalized like some people... but you feel taken advantage of.
"I'm tired of hearing from my family members, `Did you say this?' When somebody calls my family, that's what concerns me. I have little brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews who are not so media savvy as me.
'They are not so thick skinned with this business, so these reports bother them. That's when I really want to go for somebody's throat, legally with lawyers and all. And I will.' (Source)
That Katie Holmes post reminded me that I haven't done a Louis Vuitton post in a while. So without further ado, presenting my first Stars and Their Louis Vuittons post of 2008. Of course I had to put my girls Mary J. Blige and Rihanna first. She exemplifies style and grace even when she's wearing a tank top with her Louis.
Who else can rock a Louis like that without drawing criticism? Rihanna keeps it simple but sexy.

The body of Stepha Henry has not been found, but so much of her blood was in the car that took her to a Sunrise nightclub that she could not possibly have survived, officials said Tuesday.
At a news conference at the Miami-Dade Police Department, officials for the first time said Henry, 22, was brutally murdered last May, and though she remains missing, her killer, police said, has been located.
Police in Brooklyn arrested Kendrick Lincoln Williams, 32, Tuesday morning and have been questioning him much of the day, said Jim Loftus, assistant director of investigative services for the Miami-Dade Police Department. Williams is being charged with second degree murder.
Henry, a recent graduate of John Jay College who aspired to attend law school, was visiting her aunt in North Miami during the Memorial Day weekend last year when she disappeared.READ MORE...
In 2006, Ciara's manager Phillana Williams and her husband Frase lost their newborn baby daughter. The baby girl was born almost 3 months prematurely. Yet, for over a month, she bravely struggled to live. Her fight for life was chronicled by her mom in an email that was sent out to friends.
That email, which I still have, was one of the most emotional and heartbreaking I have ever read. I am happy to say that Phillana and Frase, a music producer, are pregnant again! Congratulations to them. They are a great example of an entertainment industry marriage that works.
Rumors abound that Tom Cruise's Stepford wife Katie Holmes makes $2 mil a year to pretend to be content and happy with her neurotic husband. Now we know what she spends her cheese on. Katie was snapped yesterday wearing a gigantic Hermès bag.
As you know, Hermès is one of the most prestigious brands in all the world. A Hermès handbag can easily set you back $25,000 - that's if you can find one. Most Hermès bags are made to order and the waiting list is long.
Meanwhile, people are still talking about this video in which Tom attempts to explain the benefits of being brainwashed and something about identifying SPs (suppressive people) who are enemies to Scientologists.
The official trailer for the new season of MTV's Making the Band is on You Tube. If I'm not mistaken, this season features has-been bands from former seasons, Kanity Dane, some solo singer and the-group-with-no-name. This season Sean Combs shacks these groups up together in a house and lets them battle it out for camera time.
Should be fun if you're tired of watching paint dry.
I'm worried about my former friend Kim Porter. She's not looking well lately. We can speculate the reason until the cows come home, but word is, Kim, 39, is exhausted from trying so hard to stay relevant.
Kim was spotted with one of her twin baby girls at the Boom Boom Room’s gifting suites at the Century Plaza Hotel in California over the weekend. I heard a rumor that I might share with you guys regarding Kim. I have to verify the facts first. You know how I do. My attorney has enough of a work load. (Photo source)
If this is old news I apologize, but I was not aware that American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino had a brother. Somehow I assumed she was an only child. According to American Idol Worship blog, the seventh season of American Idol begins tonight, and Fantasia's brother Ricco Barrino is one of the contestants.
According to them, Ricco is expected to win it all. I hear the major labels are in hot pursuit of the brotha. They say his voice sounds like a male version of Fantasia, whatever that means. I have never seen an episode of AI, so I'm counting on you guys to keep me up to speed on whether he wins it all or goes back to flipping burgers at White Castle.
