Should a mere mortal be allowed to approach and touch the queen Rihanna in this manner? Where is her bodyguard? They say that while Rihanna ate dinner at Cipriani's in NYC last night, her ex-boyfriend (and now stalker?) Chris Brown dined directly across the street. That makes two near misses in the past few days. As you know, RiRi and Brown stayed in the same hotel over the weekend, though Rihanna denies knowing he was there.

Friends say pseudo-singer Ciara moved from Atlanta to the west coast to make herself more accessible to the paparazzi. Unfortunately for her, the paparazzi are only interested in A-listers, not frauds like her. So I hear that Ciara's people are forced to call the paps to let them know where she'll be -- and Ciara waits around for hours until the paps finally arrive. How pitiful.

Has anyone else noticed how close Rihanna and her bodyguard seem to be getting lately? Last night, Rihanna couldn't resist latching onto her bodyguard's hand as the two left a party for her friend Katy Perry. For his part, her protector looked dumbstruck. Like he wasn't expecting her to reveal their secret so soon. The chemistry between them can no longer be denied. Expect an announcement any day now. Meanwhile, Jay Z might want to have a talk with his hired help about fraternizing with the client.

The Real Foreclosed And Bankrupt Housewives of Atlanta road show rolled into Atlanta last night for a premiere party at the W Hotel. The guests who attended the event are the types who slow down and crawl past multiple car pile ups on the highway. Never mind that by the time they get to the wreckage there's nothing left to see because the mangled bodies have been covered up or transported to the hospital.

In the case of the road show at the W Hotel last night, the bodies were still there for all to see. But instead of being covered in blood, they were draped in designer rags (with the tags still attached). In every picture they grinned and primped and preened -- all the while hoping not to spill anything on their designer rags so everything can go back to the boutique for a full refund.

It was harder deciding who to feel sorry for: the "housewives" who think they're celebrities because they display their dysfunctional lives on national TV for the world to see, or the well-heeled guests who flocked to the road show to sweat out their perms so they could have something to tell their friends.

I won't be watching the Real Foreclosed and Bankrupt Housewives Of Atlanta when it premieres because I don't find scripted ghetto buffoonery entertaining at all. But the show will probably garner high ratings because, sadly, we're in a recession and the hoodrats have a need to escape into a world where the ghetto fabulous hoodrats on TV are more pitiful than they are.

TV personality and socialite Kim Kardashian is slamming rumors that she and longtime boyfriend Reggie Bush broke up because she couldn't have kids. So the rumors must be true then, eh? I figure if the rumors weren't true she wouldn't be so salty about such false allegations.

Here's what Kim K wrote on her blog yesterday:

“It’s been reported online that I can’t have children of my own and that’s totally false. I said I would love to have my own children. If I weren’t able to then adopting might be an option. How does that translate into I cannot have kids!? If you read anything online saying I can’t have children, those are totally false stories. Some media outlets are just taking what I said to PEOPLE.com and twisting it!”

Pseudo-celebrity attention whores are such weirdos.

According to online reports, federal agents, armed with search warrants, raided Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas home today. As you know, Dr. Murray is the last person to see pop icon Michael Jackson alive before Jackson died of a heart attack on June 25.

Police believe Dr. Murray fell asleep after infusing Jackson with IV Diprivan (Propofol) and then awoke to find Jackson dead.

Diprivan is a potent short-acting sedative used to induce anesthesia in a hospital setting. Patients receiving Diprivan intravenously should be carefully monitored for a drop in blood pressure/and or decreased respiratory rate that could lead to respiratory arrest and cardiac arrest.

It is recommended that Diprivan be administered slowly to prevent a dangerous drop in blood pressure. The rate of infusion should ideally be controlled by an IV machine or Diprivan can be titrated slowly by hand. But under no circumstance should the patient be left alone while the IV is infusing.

Diprivan is not available by prescription, therefore, the feds are searching for the source of the drug and how it came into Dr. Murray's possession.

According to TMZ.com, feds also served a search warrant on a storage facility in Houston where associates of Dr. Murray stored files and other items. Dr. Murray's staff removed items from the storage locker the day Jackson died.

I'm a regular visitor to your website and usually I don't agree with what you write.. .especially about Beyonce:-)

But, lately I have opened my eyes to what's really going on with the Obama administration. Yes, I have stopped drinking the kool aid:-). I remember last year I couldn't wait to vote for him and did everything I could to get him in the office. I volunteered many weekends for his cause because I did believe he was the change we needed.

Well, here I am today wondering why people easily forget that the same rule that applied in the past still exist today just with a black face on it.

He's not to blame but people really need to see who is behind the curtain pulling his strings. I am no longer voting for either party because it really don't matter.

Oh by the way, I am originally from Kenya but a citizen of the U.S... so please let your readers know that I'm not an old white lady upset because he is black.

Thanks for opening my eyes about Obama.

Please lay off Beyonce:-)

Sincerely,
Slim

Hi. Ms. Rose,

I came across a great article about what a fraud Skip Gates is...it's kind of lengthy but I thought you may be interested in it. http://www.counterpunch.org/reed07272009.html

Also I don't know if you are familiar with the blog Whataboutourdaughters but she has a great critique of Gates on her blog too.

I was on the side of Gates, but after reading your blog and both articles it is clear to me that Gates is an opportunist to put it lightly. I have no doubt that he escalated the situation with the officer in order to make a point and get some attention.

He'll probably turn this into a money making opportunity in the form of a book or some racial profiling documentary.

Anyway thanks again for putting a different perspective out there.

Thanks,

Sarah

Yesterday, loyal reader pointhimout left this comment under one of my Obama posts:

My understanding is the underlying purpose of this obamacare is population control.

She's right, and that means she's doing her research (unlike you Kool Aide drinkers). It's right there in the 1,000 page House version of the Health Care Reform bill. Obamacare bureaucrats will make sound medical decisions for all Americans -- not medical personnel, but government bureaucrats.

Someone once said: The true measure of a man can be found by who they associate themselves with.

John Holdren, Barack Obama's "Science Czar" co-wrote a book about 30 years ago advocating forced abortions and mass sterilizations as a form of population control. The book is called Ecoscience and you can find it on Amazon.com. This guy Holdren is one of the bureaucrats who will make medical decisions for us if ObamaCare passes.

Contained within the book Ecoscience are numerous radical references to population control:

  • Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.
  • Forcibly removing babies from "undesirables" and putting them up for adoption
  • Legalizing “compulsory abortions,” ie forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is already common place in Communist China
  • Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”. (that would be YOU hoodrats)

And here's a direct quote form the book:

“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

Once the blogs got hold of Holdren's book, the White House immediately released a statement from Holdren denying that he still embraces those ideals.

Do you believe Holdren and the White House denials? These are the facts: Holdren co-wrote the book Ecoscience. He studied the practice of Eugenics (improving the population through controlled breeding). You can find Ecoscience on Amazon.com.

Do you really believe that Holdren no longer embraces those population control ideals because he now works for the Obama administration?

Please take the time to read the health care reform bill for yourself before Obama rams it through Congress.
