Here’s Big Gay Al Reynolds and Lil’ Romeo as you’ve never seen them before! Well, I’ve never seen them quite this way before. Who knew Gay Al had a six pack or any pack for that matter.

And Lil’ Romeo gets his grown man on while the cougars salivate on the sidelines!

Mariah Carey made a fool out of herself in Tokyo Japan when she threw the first pitch at a game and bounced the baseball off her own head. Okay, maybe not her own head – but her wild pitch went over the plate and into the small crowd that assembled to watch her sashay around the mound. The team mascot, not knowing who Mariah was, kicked her off the field. I’m kidding of course. Mariah was a good sport and the Japanese loved her.

Designer Christian Audigier isn’t exactly a household name, but his name was enough to draw the biggest stars in showbiz to his 50th birthday party at the infamous Peterson Automotive Museum in LA last week. Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Macy Gray, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke, Fergie, Pamela Anderson, and more were in the house. If this were 5 years ago, Michael’s attendance would have shut down Miracle Mile in LA. But nowadays, nobody cares. Most of you will recall it was at the Peterson Automotive Museum where The Notorious B.I.G. attended his last bash before being killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997.

Usher posed with industry veteran Mark Pitts (Zomba Label Group) at his album release party. Michelle Williams, Gayle King and Busta Rhymes were the only celebs to hit Usher’s album release party at Norwood in NYC last night after the “Sex in the City” Premiere. I guess nobody cared. I believe Usher borrowed his outfit from one of his stepsons.

Lil’ Kim still looks blissfully disoriented as usual, but at least she’s color coordinated.

I had no clue Sarah Jessica Parker was that tiny! Jennifer Hudson finally found the time to attend a “Sex in the City: The Movie” Premiere after missing the first 3 or 4 premieres. This one was at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night.

Mary J Blige and her faithful hubby Kendu Isaac also attended the ‘City’ premiere last night. Black love is sooo beautiful! Love the Chanel clutch and dress. Chanel must have had a fire sale because everyone is Hollywood is wearing the line.

According to pre-sales estimates, Usher’s 5th studio effort Here I Stand – which dropped yesterday – will be the biggest debut album of the year with 575K in 1st week sales. On the strength of his solid #1 hit “Love in This Club”, Usher soundly trounces Mariah’s E=MC2 which previously held the top seller title with 475k sold the first week out.

Most of us missed the boat on this one with predictions as low as 80-150k in first week sales. I’m sure Usher is somewhere laughing.


Usher appeared on MTV’s TRL show today. Just after passing out about a hundred CDs to the studio audience (which most likely counts toward his overall CD sales), Usher went into a rant about people talking about his wife (again).

This is sooo tiring and bizarre. Does Usher have a PR company? This is the time to promote his new album which is about to do horrible numbers, in part, because of this obsession he has with people talking about his wife.

Usher acts like he’s brand new to the music biz. He’s lost most of his fan base with his unpredictable bitch-like behavior.

It’s not a good look for a male entertainer to continuously show his feminine side unless he’s on the verge of coming out. We already know his wife wears the pants in the relationship. Usher should make an effort to hold on to the last shred of dignity that he has left.

This past weekend, a friend called me complaining of severe cramping pain in her lower abdomen. She said the pain started about 10 minutes after she had sex with her husband and now – 2 hours later – she could barely move or breathe. She described feeling the urge to defecate or pass gas but being unable to.

She said she’s had this problem for about 2 years and her doctor told her there was nothing wrong with her. He hinted it might all be in her head. This caused my friend unnecessary anxiety and frustration.

After doing a little research, I learned that many women suffer from cramps/pain after sexual intercourse or oral sex. But 80% of these women are told there is nothing physiologically wrong with them and doctors are often at a loss to explain the cause.

The pain is described as mild cramping to intense sharp pains in the lower abdomen which usually begins 10 minutes after intercourse or oral sex. Some women report being unable to breathe or walk due to the intense pain.

This is not the same as vaginal pain during intercourse (dyspareunia) which can be caused by vaginal dryness, sexually transmitted diseases or other gynecological problems.

While some lower abdominal cramping is normal after sex if you’re pregnant – you should see a doctor if the pain increases in intensity or lasts longer than a day.

Some medical professionals believe the cramps are caused by rough sex (deep thrusting) irritating the cervix and causing it to dilate a little. Others think the cramps are caused by muscle contractions from inactivity prior to sexual intercourse.

Here’s what you can do if you suffer from cramps after sex and you’ve talked to your doctor:

  • Avoid sex one week prior to and during your period
  • Take warm baths after sexual encounters
  • Take over the counter pain killers such as Alleve
  • Perform kegel exercises to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor
  • Try sexual positions that don’t put pressure on your uterus such as laying on your side

Martin Luther King’s first grandchild was born in an Atlanta hospital on Sunday. The girl, named Yolanda Renee King, is the daughter of Martin Luther King III and his wife, Arndrea Waters King, the family said in a statement.

The newborn weighed in at 7.5 pounds. Her birth comes two years and two days after her parents were married.

“We are excited about our precious gift from God and cannot express how fortunate we feel to have our beautiful baby girl. It is truly the happiest day of our lives. I know my parents are smiling down from heaven,” the new father said in the statement released by Matlock Advertising and Public Relations, which works with the King family.

The baby was named after King’s oldest daughter Yolanda who died last year. (Source)
