If you receive this video in your In Box with the subject line "Sandra Rose hollers at the ladies" -- please don't believe it. This is not me. I don't know the young lady in the video, but I do appreciate her swag and her over abundance of confidence and self esteem. More youngsters should display the confidence this chick has. She's not fat, it's just the clothes.

Responding to intense pressure from stock holders and the public, Gillette -- makers of quality razor products -- has dropped Tiger Woods as its sponsor.

This decision follows on the heels of Pepsico/Gatorade's decision to decline renewing Woods' sports drink contract -- though Gatorade claimed the decision was made before Woods' much publicized transgressions. None of us believe that though (good try, Pepsi).

A number of companies with smaller market footprints have also dropped Woods' ads from prime time.

Gillette made its announcement as Woods announced his decision to take an indefinite hiatus from the world of golf to pursue his favorite pastime -- bagging dumb blonds.

“As Tiger takes a break from the public eye, we will support his desire for privacy by limiting his role in our marketing programs,” said Gillette, a division of Procter & Gamble.

TMZ paparazzi snapped this pic of a moving truck in the driveway of Tiger Woods' $2.6 million Islewood mansion in Florida today. It seems the rumors of Tiger's wife Elin leaving him were a bit premature. In fact, it is Tiger whose stuff is being put out on the lawn.

A truck pulled up to Tiger Woods' home an hour ago in Windermere, Florida and removed 5 big boxes from the house.

The truck driver went inside and removed 5 or 6 moving boxes from the house, put them in the back of the truck and left. We got a pic of the truck as it sat in the driveway.

A security team watched as the boxes were removed, and then flanked the truck as it left the property.

No word on who's stuff is being moved, but Elin Nordegren and the kids have been living there since the incident two weeks ago. Tiger has been nowhere in sight. Read More...

And while we're on the subject of baby daddies with 7 figure salaries, the Orlando Sentinel has a interview with NBA star Dwight Howard who is supposedly suing his baby mama for $9.2 mil. Howard says, "What lawsuit?"

Howard said he didn't know of any suit filed in Orange County, Ca., as reported by TMZ.com.

"This is on TMZ?" Howard asked. "I haven't seen it. I don't know what you're talking about."

According to the report, Reed has been bad-mouthing Howard on an internet site, saying, among other things, that he hasn't seen his son Braylon, 2, in two months.

"That's not right at all. I just saw my son in Altanta two weeks ago (on Thanskgiving)," Howard said. "You know I see my son."

Howard did not want to offer further comment. Read More...

Chris Brown took to his Twitter page today to whine and b*tch about his record sales before the sales figures have even been released.

Industry estimates of first week sales indicate Brown's album "Graffiti" is about to do quadruple zirconia and he's not happy. So the immature punk took to Twitter to blame the record stores for not stocking his crappy CDs rather than blame himself for making wack music.

This is what happens when record labels puts the focus on image and looks rather than talent and common sense. It's time for his label to launch this ungrateful snot nose kid back to Virginia along with his moms and 'em.

Thanks to loyal reader Tiffany for the tip!

Music mogul Sean Combs set off GayDars all over town when he sucked face with Jon Brod of AOL at an AOL event two days ago. Sean and Jay Z have perfected the art of kissing up to corporate bigwigs and because of that, they will never be broke.

Legendary singer/songwriter Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, showed off his mixed race seed Peyton Edmonds at the HollyRod Foundation and J.Crew private shopping event at The Grove in LA yesterday. That's Peyton's mom Nicole Pantenburg.

Actress/socialite Tatyana Ali attended Debbie Allen's "OMAN, Oh Man!" Opening Night Gala in Westwood, California last night. She looks like somebody's mother now. It was just yesterday when she played the impossibly cute Ashley on "Fresh Prince."

Add Jamie Grubb's name to the growing list of professional leg spreaders who grace red carpets for one reason only. Jamie was actually invited to the Simine Hashemizdeh's Holiday Red Carpet Event in Hollywood last night.

Reality TV personality Kim Zolciak performed her smash hit "Tardy For The Party" at Splash Bar in NYC last night. Too bad we missed it.

TMZ's cameras caught up with troubled reality TV personality Monica Danger on a street yesterday. She confirmed reports that she was locked up in a psych hospital after experiencing a psychotic break due to postpartum depression (though I believe there's more to it than just that).

Monica became depressed after giving birth to a daughter earlier this month and shaved off all her hair.

Monica also used the time honored and worn out excuse that someone "hacked" her Twitter page and wrote some untrue things about her, such as she's pregnant again. We're glad to hear that's not true because she doesn't need anymore kids. Po' thang.

Hopefully, the judge will order her to stay off twitter, the Internets and all reality TV shows.

Do better Monica!

When I saw this pic of Olympic track & field legend Linford Christie on a message board, I was immediately intrigued. I had to find more pics for today's Morning Wood because I knew my old heads would appreciate his chocolaty goodness!


At the age of 46, Christie is still physically active and fine!

His daughter is Miss England 2009, who won the crown amid much controversy and allegations of fraud.

Update:

Loyal reader Laverne D writes:

Hi Sandra

Just thought I would point out to you that Rachel Christie (who no longer is Miss England ater fighting another beauty queen over her man who is a gladiator) is not Lindford's daughter. Linford is Rachel's Uncle. One of Lindfords brothers is Rachels Dad.

Former Xscape member Tameka "Tiny" Cottle realized her dreams of being an entrepreneur and business owner when she opened her Tiny's Nail Bar salon to the public last night. Well wishers included family, friends and fans who packed into the salon at 3540 Walt Stephens Road just off Hwy 138 in Stockbridge, GA - just outside of Atlanta.

Celebrity photographer Prince Williams was on hand to capture the excitement. See more pics on ATLPICS.net!

Everyone complimented Tiny on her personal style, her hair and the salon's decor - especially the bathroom - which she designed.

BET was on location filming for the 2nd season of Tiny & Toya's popular show.

L to R: Antonia "Toya" Carter, rapper Rasheeda, Tiny and her BFF Keisha.


A few fans got there early enough to get their nails did.

My good girlfriend K (center), who is a shoe freak, LOVED Tiny's shoes so Tiny told her where to purchase a pair inside S. DeKalb Mall.

Less than a month after NBA Superman Dwight Howard had a judge check his baby mama in court, Howard is back in court again.

It seems the mother of Howard's 2-year-old son, Royce Reed, didn't get the memo that she is to cease & desist from defaming her baby daddy in any form, written, spoken or otherwise. But baby mamas are notoriously deceitful when they can't get their way. That's why they're called baby mamas.

Apparently, Reed ignored the court ordered C&D and has taken to trollop alley -- I mean, Lipstick Alley (where all baby mamas air their grievances) to blast her ex under an assumed name. Of course Reed denies the allegations, but Howard is suing her anyway, according to TMZ.

According to the docs filed in Orange County, CA, the Orlando Magic center is suing Royce Lyndsay Reed -- the mother of his 2-year-old son -- over allegedly defamatory comments that surfaced on gossip site lipstickalley.com.

Dwight claims Reed posted the comments -- whether "directly or indirectly" under an Internet alias -- in violation of an injunction he recently filed against her, which orders Reed to zip it before she utters a single word about the NBA star.

You would think Howard and others would learn from the mistakes of other ballers who now have their paychecks garnished by the courts. But professional athletes with a little cheese are sitting ducks for pretty women with ulterior motives these days because of the way their brains work. A man is just no competition for a devious gold digger. Unfortunately, the decks are stacked against men.

I don't believe my girl Gangsta Boo was involved in any armed robbery. Why would she do that when her rap career is just about to take off again? The Atlanta transplant from Memphis, turned herself into police Tuesday after learning she had a warrant for conspiracy to commit armed robbery. Boo, real name Lola Mitchell, is alleged to be one of two people on a grainy video robbing a Dollar general store. Boo denies all charges. But she is due back in court today on an unrelated charge of DUI.

Do better Boo!
