The other night, I spoke to Dorian of BET's College Hill by phone. He's such a charming young man. He and I are going to become fast friends.

Anyway, young Dorian hipped me to the fact that his fellow cast member Shavon had emailed me once. He said I also posted her pics on my site.

For some reason I could not recall ever writing about her. He tried his best to help me remember, but I kept drawing a blank. Then last night I did a search on my site and found this.

I had no clue that Shavon on College Hill was the same young lady who some say allegedly dated rapper Young Dro in the past.

Atlanta rapper T.I. plead guilty to three weapons charges in federal court in Atlanta on Thursday. T.I. will remain on house arrest until his sentencing hearing a year from now.

If T.I. abides by the conditions set forth in his plea agreement, he will receive a prison sentence of one year plus one day. Because the sentence is longer than one year, Harris will be eligible to earn 15 percent time off for good behavior. Harris also was fined $100,000.

T.I. was accompanied to court by his pregnant girlfriend Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, and his entire Grand hustle family. Comedian Lil' Duval and a few others exited the court house with fists raised in victory. T.I. appeared relaxed and relieved as he spoke to the assembled media outside the court house.

The fact that their boss won't spend the next 10 years in jail has lifted the funeral parlor atmosphere around the Grand Hustle facilities.

T.I. puts a protective arm around his fiancee Tiny as they arrive for court today

Diva Mary J Blige recently bought a newly-constructed house for a reported $12.3 million in Saddle River, NJ. I didn't know Mary J Blige was stacking chips like that. Blige's new 4.2-acre digs originally went on the market last year for $17 million. Blige's home boasts a fitness center, hardwood basketball court. The mansion features a spiral staircase and an elevator. It's modeled after a French country manor and is equipped with a gourmet kitchen and wine tasting room.

It's confirmed. Ciara and rapper 50 Cent are very much in love according to a source within Ciara's camp. Despite his denials in the media - it's true.

The source of this information couldn't be closer to Ciara than Ciara herself. I have written much about fake celebrity relationships where celebrities are conveniently coupled up for the purpose of manipulating the media. But this is not a manufactured relationship. It's the real deal.

Why am I having such a difficult time believing it? Look at him... now look at her. Ciara seems to be too smart to end up with a simpleton like him. It's really not my place to judge a woman's choice in men, but this one defies all logic.

Just when a close friend of Bow Wow pronounced Bow Wow free of any homosexual tendencies, Ashley R of BET's College Hill Atlanta, forever shattered every young girl's dream by confirming the pint size rapper's sexual orientation.

Ashley, who on any given night is probably the sweetest thing, was in rare form last night at the Hot 107.9 Anniversary party - which, incidentally, I wasn't invited to.

A source spotted Ash in the crowd and brought up Bow Wow's reaction to a post I made about her and Bow Weezy. After dropping a few unpleasantries about your favorite blogger that I won't repeat, Ash set about clearing the air on the whole Bow Wow affair.

"That was two years ago!," she shouted. "Bow Wow is GAY! That's why he was in there with all those hard legs in the room calling me a b*tch and a h*e! I am NOT a h*e!"

"This my man right here (pointing to Michael Gordon of the group Once Chance). This is the man I love! But thank [Sandra] for plugging me and giving me a boost although she didn't check her sources! That's irresponsible journalism!," she said dryly.

If you recall, I told you that R&B chanteuse Keyshia Cole recently spent a few days in beautiful Hawaii shooting 4 videos. The first of those videos is "Heaven Sent," directed by Benny Boom.

The day before she landed in Hawaii, Keyshia shot a video with Trina in Miami. Is Key Key the second hardest working diva in music?

For the past few weeks, the media has had a field day quoting Barack Obama's spiritual adviser, Rev. Jeremiah Wright's statements - most of which were taken out of context. It matters not to the watchdogs of the moral front that Rev. Wright's name holds no significance in the race for the White House.

Obama's camp has pointed out time and time again that Rev. Wright is not running for public office - Obama is. But the media paid them no mind.

As the media pack chased their collective tails, we almost forgot that Hillary Clinton was in the race for the democratic nomination. It's hilarious that Rev. Wright has received more press in two weeks than Clinton has in two months. But now Hills is back in the news - and not in a good way. There's a scandal brewing over comments she made about her 1996 trip to Bosnia as first lady.

Last week Clinton had this to say about her Bosnia trip (I'm paraphrasing here): as soon as I stepped off the plane, the tarmac was strafed with sniper gunfire and I was forced to take cover behind my daughter Chelsea, who suggested we haul our asses out of there.

Well, leave it to a comedian to expose Hillary's lies. How ironic is that? Sinbad, who was on that trip with the Clintons, recalls an entirely different scenario occurring on the tarmac that day.
