Hollywood's most boring expectant couple, entrepreneur Kimora Lee and actor Djimon Hounsou, may have upped and gotten married, according to the NY Daily News Gatecrasher.
The nuptials allegedly took place last Summer, but we're probably hearing about it now because Kimora is in need of more attention than what she's getting on the blogs. Kimora's daughters with Russell Simmons, Aoki and Ming Lee were reportedly stressed out by the nuptials. “Aoki slept through the entire ceremony, and Ming cried. They were pretty confused as to what was going on,” said a source.
We wonder how Kimora's other girls are taking the news?
According to a source close to the pair, Kimora and her man were married over the summer on a transcontinental trip to Hounsou’s native Benin, Africa ? but they couldn’t make it official in the U.S. because Kimora was still technically married to mogul Russell Simmons; that divorce was finalized on Jan 28, 2009.
Kimora’s faux African wedding was apparently as wild as her Baby Phat fashion shows. "Both Kimora and Djimon wore traditional dashikis," says our insider. "She went whole hog with the African theme -- there were African drums, a traditional ceremony with dancers. . . they even had a hut!"
You've probably already seen this very graphic video of a troubled 16-year-old boy beating the brakes off a female school bus driver who had ordered him to sit down for his own safety.
The boy is black and the bus driver is white. The incident took place last Tuesday in Kalamazoo, Michigan where other racially charged incidents have recently occurred.
The victim was a substitute bus driver transporting special needs high school students with emotional and behavioral problems.
The boy's father said the bus driver "provoked" his son by tapping the brakes and throwing him off balance. In the video, the boy is seen losing his balance as the bus driver taps the brakes. He then warns her, "I'm not the one to play with, I'll knock your old a** out." The boy claims to have blacked out just prior to assaulting the driver.
The bus driver suffered a broken hand, burst blood vessels in both eyes, cuts, swelling and contusions in the face area and six stitches in her lip.
The youth's mother later defended him, saying her son was bi-polar and schizophrenic with no history of violence.
But Newschannel 3 found five prior assault charges on the juvenile's criminal record.
The teen is currently being held on $5,000 bond at a juvenile detention facility.
T.I. gave one last unforgettable performance at his Club Crucial in Atlanta on Friday night during a brief break in his Farewell Tour.
To accommodate the overflow crowds, a stage was set up outside in the parking lot.
As T.I. gave his all onstage, rapper Shawty Lo, with whom T.I. had words in the past. emerged from the shadows and approached T.I. with his hand extended. Both men embraced and shook hands as the audience went wild! And with that, the senseless beef was squashed for good.
Upon hearing that the two warring rappers had finally settled their differences, V-103's Ryan Cameron of Atlanta's top-rated Ryan Cameron Show said, "It's about time! They're too old for that!"
Also in the house were T.I.'s fiancee Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, rapper Killa Mike, V-103's Greg Street, and the Grand Hustle family.
Props to Prince Williams of ATLPics.net for providing Sandrarose.com with these hawt images from the event!
According to Page Six, Sean Combs now contends he had no idea that woman beater Chris Brown was setting up an elaborate publicity stunt to reconcile with Rihanna at Sean's Miami crib.
Combs now feels duped and hoodwinked by Brown's high powered PR flacks who used Sean's name and home in a failed bid to repair CB's much-maligned image. So he's backing away from Brown with the quickness.
This is a good thing because once Sean Combs stops co-signing the woman beater, others in the industry will follow suit and Chris Brown will be black balled in the industry.
The bitch-boy's career is over in 5...4...3...2...
Sean "Diddy" Combs had no idea Chris Brown was going to use his home on Star Island to stage his reconciliation with Rihanna for the paparazzi. A music industry insider tells us, "Chris called and said he needed to crash at Diddy's house while he was recording. He said it would just be him and his mom." In fact, Brown, who just got charged with two felonies for allegedly beating up Rihanna the night of the Grammys, brought her down and called the photographers. "Chris is a dog," another spy said. "He's always been so critical and nasty to Rihanna, making fun of her accent."
As you know, the well-respected DeShawn Snow was booted out of the cast for the second season of the Real Housewive's of Atlanta. The first season of ATL Housewive's was Bravo's 2nd highest rated show in the 'Housewives' franchise behind Orange County.
The main reason for the show's success was the hot mess of a cast led by NeNe Leakes, who I heard has signed another short-term lease for a mansion just for this season.
After DeShawn was dismissed for not being ghetto enough, rumors swirled about her replacement.
Well, those rumors have been laid to rest now. Hollywood Insider announced exclusively that former Xscape member Kandi Burrus will fill that role. On the surface, Kandi seems to be an odd fit for this cast because her life seems drama-free. Kandi is well-respected in the industry as a songwriter with 56 million records sold.
But it makes sense when you consider that Kandi is set to be wed this month to a guy whose life is full of drama. According to my source, he has 6 children who he's not supporting financially. Kandi also has a daughter with Block of Block Entertainment.
Back in January a source close to Tameka "Tiny" Cottle informed me that Tiny would be attending Kandi's wedding in March or April. At the time I tried to do a little research on Kandi's fiance, but I came up with nothing. So I forgot about them until today when I received the following email.
I know some of it is true, but I'm still blanking out names just in case they're innocent.
Actor Brad Pitt took his daughters Zahara and Shiloh on another bribery/reward run to the toy store in the Georgetown Area Of Washington DC yesterday. This is how some white folks modify their children's behavior using the reward/bribery method. It works too. The reason why this method isn't utilized by black folks is because most of us don't have the financial resources to consistently reward our kids for good behavior. So we resort to the more convenient method of beating our kids with whatever we can lay our hands on -- a belt, a shoe, extension cord, etc. Photos: Splash News Online
Madonna escorted her children David Banda and Lourdes to Kabbalah services in Manhattan last night.
Rapper Common and his bride-to-be, tennis superstar Serena Williams were spotted out & about shopping in NYC yesterday (3/6).
In this picture, Common appears to have what we in the medical field refer to as a "boxer's fracture" of his left hand. Although the term boxer's fracture is misnamed because boxers are trained to punch straight on to avoid these types of amateur injuries.
This injury occurs when a man throws an awkward roundhouse punch at a wall or door in a fit of rage -- usually during a heated argument with his wife or girlfriend.
The punch is delivered hard enough to fracture the metacarpal bone of the pinky finger -- and to leave a rather large hole in a door or wall.
Men who are raised by their moms (or aunties) to be respectful to women usually suffer this type of injury. That's because they know that real men take out their frustrations on inanimate objects (like punching bags) rather than on a woman's face.

Selita Ebanks attended the New Yorkers for Children reception hosted by Vogue at Valentino last night in New York City. I forget who Selita laid up with to get put on in the industry. Others who are more talented than Selita, work hard for years to get put on. But when your body is banging like hers is, sometimes that's all it takes.
