Beyonce's ashy knees were the talk of the evening at the "Unforgettable Evening Benefiting the Industry Foundation" event held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel last night in Beverly Hills. Most of you know she's not my favorite of all God's children. But a loyal reader sent me an excerpt from Beyonce's interview with UK Cosmopolitan magazine's March issue. And I must say I agree with Bey for once.

In it, Bey says marriage is not as important as, say, a prom or your birthday. She wonders why women put so much emphasis on weddings because they're "just so temporary" and "goes in a second." I agree with Bey. I've always said weddings are for women. Men could care less about all that pomposity and wastefulness. All that money wasted on a lavish wedding could have been used during the marriage. The bigger the wedding, the more selfish the bride, in my opinion. Have you noticed that the couples who have the big splashy weddings rarely stay together?

Singer India Arie and lesbun news anchor Robin Roberts attended India.Arie's album release party at Kiss & Fly in NYC last night. Both women are hawt! Lawd, I wish I was in the house last night!

Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee, the most boring couple in the universe (second only to Beyonce and Jay Z), attended the JCPenney Presents "Style Your Spring" event in NYC yesterday. Anyone notice how Kimora's belly inflates and deflates every time we see her?

I say no because everyone knows the British bombshell prefers dating white boys:

An initial theory is that the couple had been arguing about Chris flirting with other women and now one magazine has suggested that Leona Lewis may have been one of those on the end of Chris's flirting.

US Star magazine reports: "At one point, Rihanna caught Chris flirting with Leona. They were carrying on and laughing, and Rihanna saw Chris with his hand on the small of Leona’s back. It may have been innocent, but that set Rihanna off." [LINK]

A Queens woman has filed a $15 million lawsuit against HIV positive baseball star Roberto Alomar for insisting on having unprotected sex with her.

llya Dall, 31, said she lived with Alomar for three years and knew something was up when she watched his health begin to deteriorate.

Alomar, 41, finally got tested when he developed a persistent cough, fatigue and shingles. By then, according to the suit, Alomar's skin had turned purple, he was foaming at the mouth and a spinal tap "showed he had full-blown AIDS." His HIV results came back positive "on or about Feb.6, 2006," according to court documents.

Dall knew about the test results but claims in her suit that Alomar "insisted" upon having unprotected sex with her.

Alomar retired from baseball due to "health issues" in 2005.

Dall is demanding at least $15 million in punitive damages for emotional stress, and exposing her children to the virus.

"He jeopardized the health, well-being and life of the plaintiff, which caused her to have a fear of contracting AIDS, often referred to as AIDS phobia," the suit says.

The couple broke up in October 2008.

Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson left her girl Sanaa Lathan at home so she could spend a night out with the guys. Taraji, Halle Berry and Gabe Aubry were spotted leaving the famous Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills last night.

Former supermodel Veronice Webb successfully hailed a cab in NYC yesterday. No doubt the cab driver peeped that big ass Louis bag she was carrying and pulled right over. If you've ever tried to hail a cab in NY you know those racist cab drivers take one look at your skin color and keep it moving.

Actress Sharon Stone created quite a stir at LAX when she sashayed through two days ago. That's right Grand Diva: let the paeans struggle with your Louis bags while you give them LIFE! That's going to be me one day.

Poor Rihanna. Now they're saying not only did her former boyfriend Chris Brown bite, kick and punch Rihanna, but he also choked her out too!

According to E Online!, Rihanna told the LAPD that the squabble started after they left Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party.

An enraged CB pulled his rented Lamborghini over to the curb so Rihanna could get out and walk back to their hotel. But instead, Rihanna snatched the keys out of the ignition and tossed them out the window, which further enraged CB.

CB scrambled out of the car in search of the keys and when he couldn't find them he returned to the car and proceeded to choke Rihanna into submission.

The last words she heard him say before losing consciousness were, "I'm going to kill you, b*tch!" Hence, the terroristic threats police lodged against him.

Many of us have waited for this moment when Sean finally kicks open the closet door and confirms the gay rumors.

During an interview when asked if he's a Metrosexual, Sean responds, "I'm not gay, but I am Metrosexual,".

Of course, in the real world, the terms Metrosexual and gay are interchangeable.

So I'll take that as a "Yes."

It's easy for woman beater like Chris Brown to bite, punch and kick a small female like Rihanna into submission. But it isn't so easy when his opponent is another man.

Several male industry insiders, who are close friends of Rihanna, have expressed a desire to dish out their own special brand of justice the next time they see Chris -- which, coincidently, will be on March 5th when CB makes his first court appearance in LA.

A couple of decent, honorable brothas plan to be in court that day as well. Speaking of brothas -- will Rihanna's own brother put his foot on Chris Brown in court?

Above and below are video examples of family members serving up their own courtroom justice.

Yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama visited the children at Mary's Center, a Washington D.C. community center. This was Michelle's first solo excursion to the hood since moving into the White House with her husband and kids. What else is she going to do with her time with no job to speak of? During one touching moment, this 5-year-old asked Mrs. Obama, if she and Barack lived in the same house. Mrs. Obama assured the child that they did indeed live together in the same house. It's interesting to note that most of the kids at the community center come from broken homes.

Brazil is getting ready for it's annual Carnaval festival with 12,000 freshly painted Barack Obama masks. Would you say the skin color is a little off on these masks? Brazil's Carnaval festival runs from Feb. 20 to Feb. 22.


Can you guess which one is Beyoncé?

As you know, T.I. spoke on the Rihanna/Chris Brown situation during an interview on Carson Daly's show Monday night.

T.I. stated that after hearing about the unfortunate incident between pop and R&B's power couple, he reached out -- not to his good friend Rihanna -- but to his home boy Chris, whom T.I. said was "a little concerned."

"I spoke to him today," Tip told Daly. "He's cool, you know. He's a little concerned about the situation, but he's still the same Chris."

T.I. continued, "I told him, 'This too shall pass.' We're celebrities, we're entertainers, but we're still human — all of us,"

It did strike some as odd that T.I. seemed to be casually brushing aside the serious domestic violence charges against Brown.

Of course, those who know T.I. knew that he wasn't making light of the situation. But T.I.'s label, Atlantic Records, moved quickly to minimize the damage anyway by releasing a label-approved, politically correct statement to MTV yesterday.

After careful consideration I realized I made the mistake of commenting before understanding the situation. I myself am no stranger to media scrutiny. My only intention was to support both Rihanna and Chris during these times. My heart goes out to both of them.

If anything, T.I. taking sides with Chris Brown should quiet the rumors that T.I. and Rihanna were ever kicking it.

In other Chris Brown news, his stepfather -- the one he wanted to kill for abusing his mom -- told Access Hollywood that he wasn't surprised at the charges against Brown.

“[Chris] has to take responsibility for his own actions," Hawkins told Access Hollywood. When asked about the allegations that he abused Chris' mom, Hawkins responded, "I never raised a hand at his mom. We (Brown’s mother and I) argued frequently… As far as physical abuse there was no physical abuse.” [LINK]
