According to a loyal reader who asked to remain anonymous, the chick in these pics is Trey Song's beard. For those of you who aren't aware, a "beard" is a woman who poses like she's the girlfriend (or wife) of a gay man to throw gossip hounds off the scent.

That's not to say that Trey Song is gay because how would I know that? But the rumors do persist and that's what we do best here on investigate persistent rumors.

Anyway, the beard's name is Ophilia and she's one of the skanky hopefuls on Ray J's reality show which premieres tonight. OK, I shouldn't say skanky because she is reasonably well put together like a tranny, which would make sense since, word is there are a couple of rappers who have knowingly -- or unknowingly banged out trannies and seemed to enjoy the experience.

I'll let my reader explain the juicy details to you!

Hey Sandra,

I'm a woman of my word. Remember I told you Trey Songz has been out and about with a blonde haired light skin girl. Well my trusted source just sent me over pics they got of the two,her name is Ophilia and she is on the new season of "For The Love Of Ray-J2" where she goes by the name "Just Right" on the show.
Anyways I was also informed by a person who works for VH-1 that tonight when the show airs Ophilia will get voted off and a girl in the house who slept with Ray-J's best friend gets to stay. ALOT of people are probably wondering how did that happen? Well what they didn't air was that Ray-J was falling for Ophilia aka Just Right, but could NOT stomach that she was dating and still in love with rival R&B singer Trey Songz while in his house. So he voted her off because he knew he could not win her over enough to cut Trey off completely. Ray-J also made sure VH-1 cut out all mentions and footage about Trey Songz out of that episode. These pictures attached are recent pics of the two in a club basically tied to the hip. In one pic you can see Ophilia give a girl the "I'mma cut that bitch if she don't stop looking at Trey like that" look lol.

From ABC News:

Fayetteville police said Monday they have found the body of missing 5-year-old Shaniya Davis.

She was last seen on the day she went missing being carried in the arms of a pedophile who was later arrested and charged with kidnapping Shaniya.

Shaniya's mother, Antoinette Nicole Davis, 25, was taken into custody on Friday (Nov. 12) and charged with human trafficking, child abuse involving prostitution and filing a false police report.

The child's remains were located in an area bordered by Highway 87 south and Walker Road - just south of Sanford - during a second day of searching.

Davis was last seen alive at a Comfort Suites hotel in Sanford last week - the same morning her mother reported her missing from her Fayetteville home. Police say a surveillance video from the hotel showed the child with 29-year-old Mario McNeill.

The area where police found the body is about 7 miles from the hotel.

Thanks to loyal reader Oneal R. for the tip.

The body of Chicago Board of Education President Michael Scott, pictured on the right with the Reverend Jesse Jackson, was found alongside the Chicago river early this morning. Police believe Scott shot himself in the head. A handgun was found near his body.

According to Jesse Jackson who spoke with Scott last week, he was under tremendous pressure from the community and the White House to address the gang violence that took the life of 16-year-old Derrion Albert in October.

Other sources believe Scott's job was on the line due to the intense media scrutiny given to the case. The savage death of the Fenger High student on Sept. 24 was captured on a cell phone camera and went viral on YouTube.

His death prompted visits to the school from the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. And the president of the United States sent U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan to visit Chicago in October to talk about what the Obama administration is doing to combat youth violence.

Three youths are being held without bond in the Derrion Albert beating case.

Although Reverend Jackson clarified to that he was not under the impression that Scott was experiencing any emotional trauma as a result of the Chicago student’s reportedly brutal death, speculating is circulating on Monday that it may have contributed to his actions. Source


The former bodyguard of Sean Combs, Jay Z and Mariah Carey passed away this weekend after being shot in the neck by New York's finest. You know how quick they are to pull the trigger especially when they see a BMWG -- black man with gun.


A former bodyguard for JAY-Z, MARIAH CAREY and SEAN COMBS died in a bar brawl on Sunday (15Nov09) - after he was fatally shot in the neck by New York City police.

Authorities were called to Brooklyn club Norwood Palace early on Sunday morning after gunfire broke out, allegedly over a spilled drink.

According to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, a plainclothes police officer fired at Kevin White, who was reportedly holding a gun inside the club, after he failed to obey to instructions to drop the weapon.
Surveillance video footage reportedly shows the 43-year-old bouncer and celebrity security guard shooting at police prior to the fatal blow.

White had been arrested on five previous occasions for weapon possession, reports the New York Post.
However, his relatives insist White had just wrestled the gun from a patron. White's sibling, Louis, argues, "My brother would never carry a gun."

Nineteen-year-old Donovan Wilson was also wounded in the incident after reportedly firing a gun at another club bouncer. He was shot in the elbow and hip after failing to follow police orders to drop his weapon.

For some time now I noticed that most of the chicks in the nightclub photos in Atlanta are wearing cheap, knock offs of brand name bags like the imitation Louis Vuitton that Debra Glenn of Glenn Twins is wearing in this picture.

I know that these bags are fakes and I'm not even a fashion connoisseur (expert). Also, the chicks that you normally see holding the bags in these club pics look like they could afford the real thing if they cut back on hair and nail salon visits in a month.

So why do these ladies wear these bags when they are so obviously fake?

I put the question to a fashionista friend of mine who wouldn't be caught dead with a knock off. She told me that "everyone does it because it's the in thing now". She said the bags are not referred to as "knock offs" they are called "replicas".

And, in some case, the replicas of a Chanel or Louis Vuitton bag carries the same status as the real thing, but at half the price. As you know, status is everything.

She said there is a robust replica market for these bags such as this site that caters to women looking for replica handbags and shoes on a tight budget.

For instance, the replica of a Louis Vuitton monogram Speedy 25 that Debra is holding can be yours for $215 as compared to the real thing which retails for $665. The difference between the two, of course, is the authentic Speedy is higher quality and doesn't sag or lose its shape.

Leave it to us to make a status symbol out of a knock off of a high end brand.

Ciara brushed her hair a little differently over the weekend. Notice how she brushed her hair down and behind her hairs? That's called a modified combover to cover up the fact that her edges have seen better days.

But at least she didn't throw on a ratty lacefront wig like Beyonce would have done. CiCi knows her edges are jacked up, and she's working on bringing them back to life. Good for her!

Speaking of life, CiCi gave them just that on the red carpet with her calves of death at the MOCA 30th Anniversary Exhibition. I bet Ciara can crack coconuts with those hammers. Home girl was workin' it!

In a post from July, I wrote:

A word of caution to all married (and unmarried but attached) men who can’t resist the urge to step outside of your relationships: Don’t sleep.

Back in the day, when the black community still had values and high morals, men would still creep. But it was understood that a man never went to sleep with a jumpoff in his hotel room.

The true playa’s motto was: hit it then quit it. They never let their emotions get involved because they valued what they had at home.

About 6 years ago, I received a letter from a reader. Inside the letter was a photo of an industry baller sound asleep in what looked like a hotel room. In his open hand lay a sex toy.

The letter author was, of course, a pissed jumpoff. In her lengthy letter she asked me to put him on blast by posting the letter and photo on my website. I declined her request due to the fact that I knew him and he was a genuinely nice guy.

Well, I don't know L.A. Reid's son Aaron Reid, but another pissed jump off emailed the above pic to Worldstar Hip Hop of Aaron sleeping in a hotel room with his wee wee sticking out of his pants.

Since this is a family-oriented blog, I won't post the pic. But I'm sure others have so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

heres what she said "

I want to stay anonymous, but i met Aaron Reid recently in Miami. I know you may have some sort of connect on him, but anywayyzz...... He was cocky as hell, but i still agreed to have sex with him. After 10 minutes he was out and left me disappointed!!!!!!! So PLEASE put this asshole on BLASST!!!!
Attached is a pic of his LITTLE wee wee hanging out his PJ's!!!!

Ms. Anonymous"

By the way rappers and celebs, always make sure you pay these strippers, jump offs, etc. off so this won't happen to you. Trust me, it's not a pleasure for them to sleep with you just because you're a celeb. They want to be paid -- or at least buy them a Coach bag or something.

Pop icon Rihanna and her BFF Melissa arrived back at their hotel in London, England yesterday. And it appears that Rihanna has a nasty looking bump over her left eye leading to rampant speculation about how she got it. We were overly concerned so we reached out to RiRi's manager inquiring about the bump. We don't really expect a response but at least we tried.

What is this bag Rihanna is carrying? A new Louis? I was at both Louis Vuitton stores over the weekend -- the one at Phillips and the Lenox store -- and I don't recall seeing this. It looks like two fanny packs hooked together. Why do the celebs always get the goods before we do?

Complex Magazine, who fancies themselves style aficionados, have decided what the Top 10 Style Trends of the 2000s are, and who started the trends.

I'm kind of disappointed in the fact that Complex paid homage to Beyonce and others who would be lost if it weren't for their stylists. Yet they mention Rihanna only twice. RiRi may not be the best singer, but she has left her mark on the industry in terms of fashion, hair and starting trends.

See if you recognize your personal style in any of these trends.

10. Big-frame Sunglasses

PIONEERS: Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie, the Olsen twins
COMPLEX SAYS: There’s no better way for a chick to hide her bleary hangover face during a walk of shame. The less we see of that, the better.

9. Pencil Skirts

PIONEERS: Hayden Panettiere, Kim Kardashian
COMPLEX SAYS: There’s always one betty in the office that everyone has the hots for, and chances are she dresses something like this…in your fantasies.

8. Trifey Accessories

PIONEERS: J. Lo, Teyana Taylor, Kimora Lee, Keri Hilson
COMPLEX SAYS: Word to LL—we love an around-the-way girl, even if she’s a fake one. There’s just something ’bout name plates, door knockers, and three-finger rings that says, “Sure, a dinner date at McDonalds sounds great!”

SR SAYS: How could Complex leave Rihanna out of this category when it's obvious she is a pioneer of the junk jewelry craze? And why is Teyana Taylor's name mentioned anywhere in this article?

7. High-top sneakers

PIONEERS: Cassie, Amber Rose
COMPLEX SAYS: We love sneakers, so it’s only logical that chicks in kicks is a WIN in our book—as long as she doesn’t have WNBA-size feet.

SR SAYS: So high-top sneakers weren't a trend until Amber Rose started it? HA HA HA!

6. Platform Heels

COMPLEX SAYS: Heels instantly enhance the hind quarters of any female and add definition to leg muscles. There’s something to be said about a chick that can handle her business with heels on. They just make everything better.

SR SAYS: Wow. Is Beyonce really the only celeb who pioneered the high heel platform pumps? SMH.

See the bottom 5 after the break!

Former baseball slugger Sammy Sosa celebrated his birthday with his wife Sonia on his arm at the famed Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach over the weekend.

Sosa turned 41 on Nov. 12. He looks like a peacock strutting his new light skin around the room. His new skin has brought him a lot of attention since his public debut at a Latin awards event two weeks ago.

At first Sosa tried to deny the obvious. But then he decided to come clean and admit he used bleaching cream all along to lighten his complexion to the more socially acceptable whiter hue. Sosa said his new look is the result of a "bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and it whitens my skin some."


But did Sammy really use bleaching cream all over his body, which would seem impractical? Or did he get the injections like Michael Jackson did, which works faster in the bloodstream and gives him an overall even skin tone?

Whatever he used to achieve his results, it worked. He's obviously happy to be accepted into the white society in his community.
