Access Hollywood scored an exclusive interview with the entire Barack Obama family over the 4th of July weekend. Maria Menounos spoke with Barack, his wife Michelle and their daughters – in particular, Malia Obama, 10.

Malia does not conduct herself like any 10-year-old I’ve ever met. Malia tells Menounos that she has dibs on one of the bedrooms in the White House when (not if) her daddy wins the presidency. Miss Malia knows how she’s going to decorate her room and everything.

Precocious might be too tame a word to describe Malia Obama. This little girl is TOO grown. I blame the parents. What can one expect when both parents are frequently on the road leaving their small children to practically raise themselves?

According to TMZ.com, rap artist The Game got into an altercation with a family member outside of a church where he had just attended his cousin’s funeral. The fisticuffs were over monies the family say Game owed for his half of the funeral expenses.

Robert “Kirky” Kirkwood tells TMZ that when his sister died, The Game — who he says is his first cousin — volunteered to pay half of the $14k it cost to bury her. But Game later changed his mind and also changed his phone number.

Kirky and The Game got into it after the funeral services for Kirky’s sister last Saturday where The Game spoke during the service about family values. Kirky says his cousin punched him in the face during the dust up following the service.

Why is it that funerals bring out the worst in people? Family fighting over money at a funeral is disgraceful! Anyway, Kirky says he’s filing assault charges. I’m sure the lawsuit will be filed any day now.

A man with Stage 4 colon cancer is injured by a “faith healer” who lays hands and feet on him.

    EDITED: to add interview of the fake faith healer by Geraldo Rivera. Notice how the sound conveniently cuts out when Geraldo asks for documented proof of his healings.

CJ and Dime Peace Entertainment threw a grand opening bash for their night (every Thursday) at the new Candy Shop lounge. Yes, there’s lots of exotic eye candy in all manner of undress there. But constant visits to this candy shop won’t mean a trip to the dentist. If you can’t read between the lines, it’s a place where your man goes to be “entertained” for ten dolla.

Celebrities and Veeps in the house included Jermaine Dupri, Allen Iverson, J-Lac (Usher’s bruh), Jerry Clark (Island Def Jam VP), and others who wished to remain anonymous. They say AI threw obscene amounts of cash in the club – and it was all real!

Check out the pics from the Grand opening of Candy Shop!

Nigger Nas found out the hard way that too many gimmicks can backfire in his face. NN who has always relied on gimmicks to promote his albums, now realizes he made a mistake when he decided to name his album Nigger. The backlash against NN and his girlfriend Kelis has resulted in the cancellation of their reality show.

According to online reports, only two episodes were ever filmed before production was halted. Apparently NN and Kelis could find no takers for the show and the show’s production budget was depleted. The couple tell friends that it was NN’s decision to cancel production. NN says: “It was boring. We were too guarded. We weren’t ready.”

U.S. officials are investigating Beyonce for passport abuse according to online reports. Beyonce’s passport has been improperly accessed, making her the latest celebrity to be targeted by crooks.

    The American government has launched an investigation into claims that many famous U.S. stars have fallen victim to illegitimate snooping, with the internal state department declaring that 127 celebrities have had their personal details illegally accessed.

    Other victims include model Anna Nicole Smith and presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama.

    Investigators took a sample list of 150 stars and found that 127 of them had suffered an invasion of privacy, with Knowles’ passport file said to have been accessed more than 100 times.

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has issued an apology over the security breaches. (Source)

The following is a personal message from the birthday girl, D. Woods, who celebrated her birthday at the Luckie Food Lounge in Atlanta on July 3rd.

    HAPPY BDAY TO ME!!!!

    Hey guys yesterday was my bday…July 6th (people have been gettin’ it all mixed up so I’m being specific now). I have been celebrating for a week now and I think I burned myself out a lil bit, lol. I’m just chillin’ with my mom now, as I should since she did all the work on this day.

    But for all those who helped me celebrate by coming to the show at Six Flags Georgia, the ATL stop on the “Its A Girl Tour” at Luckie Lounge, or who partied it up with me in New Orleans during the Essence Music Festival… Thank u for making my 24th off the chain. I’m still a lil hung over from all the drinks Terrence from 106 & Park made me drink, Estelle and I need some practice before we go bowling again with Roxy.

    I’m still blushing from Lloyd singing happy bday to me, I need to hear “Summer Time” one more time from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and I’m already planning another jam session with State of Emergency, Rock City, Danity Kane and The Girls Club. So if you see me throughout the month of July and you couldn’t get it in with me this weekend, I still wanna celebrate with you, just name the place.

    To all my Cancers… I have bags of cotton candy left over so come get you one!!!

    ~D.Woods

T.I., otherwise known as T.I.P. to his family and friends, always gives back to the community without any fanfare or press releases. Shawty Lo doesn’t talk about that! For instance, did you know that on the 4th of July while you enjoyed your cookouts and family get-togethers, T.I. was feeding his community?

T.I. threw a 4th of July block party for his Bankhead neighbors that was well attended. T.I. and the staff of his nightclub, Crucial, helped prepared hundreds of plates of food – over 80 lbs. of chicken – hundreds of hot dogs, drinks and games for the kids. Of course, Freddy O was there to capture the excitement of the day.

Lisa Cox of Girls in the Night and Girlology brought model Angel Lola Luv to the Park Tavern as a part of this past weekend’s Atlanta Gay Pride festivities. Even though Black Gay Pride isn’t until Labor Day, there’s nothing wrong with starting the party early.
