The NY Post's gossip column Page Six today issued a correction and an apology after admitting their source lied when they claimed Michelle Obama ordered "Iranian caviar" and two lobsters from room service at the Waldorf Astoria.

We all know Michelle would never eat caviar and lobster in the same sitting. What sistah does that? Plus, Michelle is watching her weight carefully, so why would she order two lobsters? Shame on Page Six for not checking their sources!

THE source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation. (Source)

Old school rapper MC Lyte's fresh hairdo elicited a side-eye glance from a young lady at Ne-Yo's Circue de Soleil birthday party this past weekend. These young kids today don't know a thing about hawt hairstyles that don't require glue and string to hold them together. :)

buttercup24 Says:

When you put the interview up of him actually saying Obama isn’t ready, has no experience and he is predicting his downfall, then I’ll comment...

Like he's really going to say it in those words, lol. Maybe Buttercup24 doesn't understand what "covert betrayal" means. Some people just aren't good at reading between the lines. Aren't you glad you have me to explain it all to you? :)

Anyway, according to the distinguished news man Dan Rather, the Obama campaign can't be happy about what Sen. Joe Biden said. Now Biden is backtracking on same-sex marriage -- which Obama supports. The Republicans are surely jumping for joy.

In my post about the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards, I never suggested that Tip and his wifey Tiny were not together anymore. I clearly stated that she skipped the Awards because she was a stay-at-home mom. But that doesn't mean she's a shut in! She does get out of the house when her babies are asleep.

Hello my name is TYRE LAJUAN i will like to ask if you can fix the info about Diamond of former member of crime mob. She does not know bout this but my asst. will contact her tomorrow. I am the designer that created Diamond's look and I would like credit please: TYRE LAJUAN www.myspace.com/mastermind85 and that corset was made not bought from Fredericks, and them boots was not Aldo's.

Aldo's don't even have that style shoe and trust she paid more than $400 for the stone boot that was hand done so please can you correct this info cause she have grown from Fredericks and Aldo's. As a new friend and designer I will make sure the world sees a new Diamond in more creative then ever ideas and concepts.

Thanks and god bless and love the site.

In what some are calling a stunning covert betrayal, Sen. Joe Biden strongly indicated that presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama may not be experienced enough to handle a major crisis.

In fact, Biden predicted such a major catastrophe will hit the U.S. within "six months" of Obama taking office. In a nod to Obama's lack of foreign-policy experience, Biden said, "I've forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know..."

Biden made his chilling comments to supporters at a Seattle fundraiser on Sunday. Referring to Obama as "this guy" Biden said:

"Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

Biden predicted the "test" would come from Russia or the Middle East, and he added:

"he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right."

In raising the alarm so soon before the election, Biden assures that Obama takes the full blame for whatever crisis is about to befall us.

"Gird your loins," Biden warned the room full of supporters.

"We’re gonna win with your help, God willing, we’re gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man."

Not very comforting words from the man who is supposedly the next VP, are they? Lol, I thought he would at least wait until they were elected before he started telling the stark naked truth!

Word is one of the few manufacturers of bomb shelters has seen a recent spike in orders from Americans who want the shelters buried in their back yards --- just in case.

Gird your loins, indeed.

Rappers Scrappy and Diamond are engaged to be married! Word is Scrappy surprised Diamond recently with a marriage proposal and Diamond happily accepted!

The couple were spotted backstage at the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards all hugged up and beaming from ear to ear. Diamond sported a diamond encrusted engagement ring which she flashed proudly.

I'm proud of them -- especially Scrappy for making Diamond official and for telling the hood rats to back up off him! Although I am not a proponent of marriage, Scrappy should be commended for stepping up and being a man.

Oh, and Diamond is not pregnant. Isn't black love beautiful?!
