Hi Sandra,My name is Stephanie Abdullah. I do publicity work with Bobby Brown. I've been made aware of the viscious hateful rumor about Bobby that is posted on your site. I'm asking that you please remove it. Bobby Brown is not only NOT dead-he's fully alive and vibrant and very excited about his new reality show Gone Country, which premieres on CMT tomorrow. Your cooperation is appreciated.

All Good Thoughts and Unceasing Blessings!!!!!

I normally don't post when idiot rappers get themselves arrested but it's happening so frequently now, how can I ignore it? Either the police are actively seeking indictments against rappers or rappers really are that stupid. It's easy to point the finger of blame at the cops who don't make a fraction of the salaries of these clowns but rappers make it so easy nowadays.

According to TMZ.com, Lil' Wayne's tour bus was pulled over somewhere in Arizona yesterday. After the obligatory search of the bus he was busted for possession of cocaine, ecstasy and other drug paraphernalia.

Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, bonded out of jail today and signed autographs for waiting fans.

Here's my take on the Heath Ledger story: I have to admit I was not familiar with the actor whose promising career was cut short by his untimely death. Someone reminded me that Mr. Ledger played a gay cowboy in the movie 'Brokeback Mountain'. I never saw the movie.

For those of us who are unfamiliar with him, we can't escape the wall to wall news coverage of his death. One of the troubling aspects of his death was his masseuse's claims that she attempted CPR on Mr. Ledger when she found him unresponsive.

According to Nancy Grace, Ledger was found face down in his bed. Any masseuse should be trained in basic CPR 101 which teaches you to move an unresponsive person off the bed and onto the floor before initiating CPR. If you're unable to move the patient, then a board or other hard surface should be placed under his back.

At any rate, the patient must be face up before any attempt at CPR can be made. If paramedics found Ledger face down in his bed, then no attempt at CPR was made.

The other troubling aspect is why the masseuse called actress Mary-Kate Olsen twice before calling 911? And did the actress send her security to the apartment to remove incriminating evidence? Lastly, if 911 was called 15 minutes after the masseuse heard Ledger snoring then she or the company she works for could be held responsible for not acting swiftly enough to save his life.

Grand Hustle rapper Young Dro, whom I consider to be a very handsome and charming young man who is always nice to me when he sees me out - may not have 3 women on the side as I earlier reported. He may only have two now that Shavon has taken herself out of the lineup. I can't tell you how many friends she has enlisted to email me on her behalf.

Today I received an email from my friend Jay Reid of Bad Boy South. In his email was a message from Shavon which I posted after the break.

UPDATED: Def Jam Chairman LA Reid is in town to attend this party tonight. They say there will be no replacement for Jay Z for months. I think I will stop through the party to get the info straight from the horse's mouth :)

Wednesday's night most memorable and star studded exclusive party known as "The Hollywood Hide Out" has come to an end at the spot that Mr. Plush of Plush Blue Ent and Juan Farmer aka Jebron F. Kennedy from Rowdy Records, made famous - "The Royal Lounge" in Atlanta, GA.

Mr. Plush and Juan Farmer were killing it on Wednesday nights - but it ain't over!

From the expensive cars and stretch limo's, huge stars to the most exclusive parties with entertainers from Nas, Terrance Howard, Tony Rock, Chris Tucker, AKON, Allen Payne, Keyshia Cole, Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, Chingy, Joe Johnson, NSYNC, New Edition, The Dream Listening party, the Glenn Twins Lingerie b-day party with Rich Boy and Slim Thug in attendance, Chris Webber & Evan Ross just to name a few have all been spotted partying with Mr. Plush & Juan Farmer at the Royal on Wednesday nights.

I guess you can say that the Hollywood Hide out just outgrew the Royal Lounge.

The Good news is, the party has been moved to the new, sexy and more spacious spot NOIR Lounge on Peters Street. NOIR has two rooms - an all white room and a separate VIP Lounge and it's right up the street from Royal Lounge on Peter St. Word is, NOIR is now the new spot on Wednesday's starting this Wednesday (1/23) for the grand launching of the Hollywood Hde Out.

This Wednesday's Grand Launching will be hosted by Jermaine Dupri and the entire Def Jam family. Rumor has it Ludacris and Jeezy will also be in the house along with several other major stars.

Don't just hear about it, BE about it!

Ronald Davis, the suspected trigger man in the murders of two women and their babies in Indianapolis made a court appearance in a Marion county courtroom today. Two of his co-defendants, Donte Hobson and Jasper Frazier made statements placing the murder weapon in Davis' hand the night of Jan. 14.

According to a police affidavit, officers responding to a report of gunfire at the home found the two women and their children in a back bedroom on the floor between a bed and a wall. Each victim had been shot multiple times. Only Charlii was still breathing.

According to the affidavit, an officer carried Charlii from the back bedroom and handed her to a paramedic through a window. Charlii was later pronounced dead at Methodist hospital. A blood trail from the back bedroom to the front room was later determined to be Charlii's. 10 shell casings were found in the back bedroom of the home the two women shared.
