I know every dog has his day, but I'm hoping this story is not true. Singer Chris Brown's camp is so desperate to repair his image that, according to Eonline, the woman beater sat down with Larry King on Wednesday for a "no-holds barred" interview.

It is the first interview Brown has given since his arrest on domestic abuse charges in February. Supposedly, King pulls no punches and Brown responds to every question asked of him. The interview will air sometime next week on Larry King Live on CNN. I've already fired off my email to CNN in protest. And I won't be watching.

In an almost embarrassing display of arrogance, RHOA's Lisa Wu Hartwell told Star magazine in a recent interview that she is taking R&B crooner Keith Sweat back to court to seek full custody of their two boys so she can put them on her show.

As you already know, in 2003 Sweat won full custody of their sons Jordan, now 14, and Justin, 11, due to Lisa Wu's unstable maturity and poor judgment. Sweat was able to prove to a judge that she was an unfit mother due to her reckless spending habits. In court documents it was revealed that Lisa Wu routinely stole from Sweat right in front of the children during their "tumultuous" marriage.

The judge wrote:

"Mother has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children… There was some evidence at trial that Mother implicitly participated in robbing Father in the presence of the children." Source

Court documents make it clear that Lisa Wu's current custody challenge is financially motivated. In addition to seeking full custody of the boys, she is also requesting child support to supplement her income now that her husband, former NFL player Ed Hartwell, has no visible means of support.

Lisa Wu tells Star, "I've already been seeing them four or five times a week, but now the time has come when I want to have them with me full-time." She filed for custody in February of this year -- right around the time when she was filming her TV series. Her next court date is in October.

According to Star, "if she's successful, the next step will be having Jordan and Justin appear on RHOA." Hopefully the judge reads the blogs and will see that Lisa Wu is a gold digger who has no problem pimping her children out for television ratings.

As I wrote in an earlier post, Sweat is adamantly opposed to his children appearing in the television series, and in the past he has refused to sign a waiver permitting Bravo to film the boys.

“If Keith has a hang-up about our sons being on TV, I would be fine with that. But Real Housewives is supposed to be a reality series. The reality is that all the fans watching believe I only have one child,” said Lisa Wu who has a 2-year-old son, EJ, with Hartwell.

Sexy pop singer Rihanna was spotted leaving her favorite eatery, Da Silvanos Restaurant in Manhattan yesterday. RiRi strutted her stuff wearing ripped white painter's jeans, white flats, denim stone washed cropped jacket and a pair of Tom Ford shades to block out the multiple flashes from the many paparazzi waiting outside! She doesn't look depressed to me.

I'm so out of the loop. I didn't know there was an incident involving Jadakiss, did you? Anyway, Jadakiss's CD is one of the few that I purchased this year even though I'm no longer bumping it in the ride as much as I did when I first bought it.


Please the official statement from Def Jam Recording Artist Jadakiss regarding the incident that took place this week.

"What happened on Saturday was an unfortunate situation but one in which I have no involvement in. Since the release of my recent album "The Last Kiss," I have been on the road touring and promoting my project. I am focused on my performance schedule and career."

Thank You,

Which has-been pseudo singer was spotted shopping for doggie furniture at a pet boutique in West Hollywood yesterday? She was wearing grungy, ripped jeans, a football jersey and a pair of her daddy's old work boots.

See who it is after the break!

MSNBC's resident queen Chris Matthews continues his shameless drooling obsession with the heterosexual Barack Obama. On MSNBC's Today Show this morning, anchorwoman Ann Curry asked Matthews "where does Ted Kennedy fit in with the Kennedy brothers?" A simple enough question.

The ever fawning Matthews responded that Ted Kennedy, who died of brain cancer, "turned that torch over last year to Barack Obama. Barack's now the last [Kennedy] brother."

Never mind that Barack Obama had nothing to do with Curry's question. Obama might need to take out a restraining order on Matthews, who once famously said he feels a "tingling sensation" down his leg whenever he thinks about Obama.

Rapper Jay Z covers the most recent issue of XXl magazine, according to a loyal reader who sent this cover. This reminds me that I promised another loyal reader to post the definition of a narcissist:

According to The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), narcissism is defined as "a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy."

The narcissist is described as turning inward for gratification rather than depending on others and as being excessively preoccupied with issues of personal adequacy, power, and prestige. Narcissistic personality disorder is closely linked to self-centeredness. It is also colloquially referred to as "the God complex."

True narcissists (like Barack Obama, Jay Z, Jermaine Dupri and Sean Combs, for example) will display 5 or more of the following behaviors and character traits:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
  • Requires excessive admiration
  • Has a sense of entitlement
  • Is interpersonally exploitative
  • Lacks empathy
  • Is often envious of others or believes others are envious of him or her
  • Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or ideal love (megalomania)
  • Believes they are "special" and can only be understood by, or should associate with, people (or institutions) who are also "special" or of high status

Just about all celebrities, and people who seek the limelight tend to be narcissistic to some degree.


I know you don't care, but...

Rapper Juelz Santana is accused of threatening his girlfriend with a knife in his New Jersey home.

Teaneck police charged Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, with making terroristic threats and possessing a weapon. He's free on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Municipal Court on Sept. 9.

Capt. Dean Kazinci says Santana's girlfriend told police a verbal dispute became physical Tuesday.

Kazinci says the rapper told officers the woman was the aggressor and she had the knife.

Police say the girlfriend, whose name was not released, had minor injuries that did not require medical treatment. Source

According to Sen. Russ Feingold, a Democrat, the health care bill will not be passed before Christmas, and maybe not at all.

Speaking before a large crowd inside the Mercer County Community Center in Iron County, Wisconsin, Senator Feingold said the health care bill might not pass at all.

"Nobody is going to bring a bill before Christmas, and maybe not even then, if this ever happens," Feingold said. "The divisions are so deep. I never seen anything like that," he said referring to the rift between the GOP, the blue dog Democrats and the Dems who want the bill passed.

"We're headed in the direction of doing absolutely nothing, and I think that's unfortunate," he said when asked about the plight of uninsured Americans.


Not one local celebrity showed up for the Frankie & Neffie premiere party in Atlanta last night. Not one -- unless you call Ms. Sophia, co-host of the Frank & Wanda Show on WVEE, a celebrity.

According to Tami of Talkingwithtami.com, the club was packed, but it doesn't take much these days to get folks to attend an event where there is the potential for mess to happen. Everybody loves mess and that's why the airwaves are full of nig-norant shows like this one.

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole has to be happy she is no longer contributing to the ignorance. I'm sure she didn't expect her show to give birth to this ghetto travesty.

Tami has more pics from the premiere on her blog.
