Actress Vivica A. Fox flew into town from LA over the weekend to spend quality time with her man, a 20-something club promoter from Atlanta. Oh, you thought Aunt Viv wasn’t over 50 Cent because all the blogs posted that video of her crying on the Mo’Nique show?
No, dears. Vivica was crying tears of joy because she’s finally in love and her new man treats her like a queen. She was just explaining to Mo’Nique that she was over 50 but you might have been confused by her tears of joy.
Vivica and her handsome young beau spent the entire day together yesterday. They ate dinner, took in a movie at Atlantic Station and went bowling at 300 where they were spotted hugging and kissing all evening. In fact, my spies tell me they couldn’t keep their hands off each other.
And guess who has all the pictures of the lovey dovey couple together?!
Clearly Miss Vivica has moved on and isn’t thinking about pocket change, I mean 50 Cent.
One-hit wonder Kelis was spotted leaving her London hotel to attend her fifth album’s, “Flesh Tones”, launch wearing a rabbit fur hat, jacket and tight pleather pants.
I could have sworn convicted rapper Lil Wayne performed his ‘farewell concert already? Over the weekend, he performed again at the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has bad karma. Trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes. Over the weekend, a car she was riding in was involved in a man vs. auto accident. What happened was Lohan left a hotel in West Hollywood and got into a car being driven by her assistant who gunned the vehicle down an alley swarming with paparazzi.
Not surprisingly, the psycho ran over one of the paparazzo injuring his hand. The pap was so terrified he wet his pants. He plans to sue Lindsay Lohan even though she wasn’t driving. Charges are pending against her assistant.
I’m waiting patiently for this silly shredded jeans fad to die out because some people (like Miley Cyrus and Jermaine Dupri) think they look cute wearing ripped jeans when they don’t.
Rapper Method Man performed at the Days Like This Festival at Fox Studios in Sydney, Australia yesterday.
Alicia Keys’ booty call skit on Saturday Night Live did not make me laugh at all. Probably because her masculine voice sounds like a pre-op tranny trying to sound sexy. I would swear some drag queen was playing games on the phone if Alicia Keys called me at 2 a.m. Maybe it would help if Alicia took some feminine hormones to make a voice a little higher?
We shine because they hate us,
floss cause they degrade us,
we trying to buy back our 40 acres.
And for that paper look how low we’ll stoop,
even if you in a Benz you still a nigga in a coupe.

An explosive excerpt from a much-awaited book about U.S. president Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign threatens to jeopardize Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s political career.
In the book, which goes on sale Monday, the Senator from Nevada called Barack Obama a “light-skinned” African-American who lacked a “Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
The book, “Game Change” was written by Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin and New York magazine’s John Heilemann
Excerpts from the book were posted on a right wing website Saturday morning, and all hail broke loose on the hill and in the White House.
In a controlled panic, Reid telephoned Obama on Saturday offering his apologies and also reached out to any high profile black politician he could find to defend him.
Obama accepted Reid’s apology and declared the case closed. But others expressed surprise and dismay that Reid could so foolishly utter his racist remarks in the presence of a Time magazine writer.
“This is definitely not a fight that we want to be having,” said a Reid backer. This source described himself as “stunned that [Reid] could have said something so stupid to a reporter. It’s just kind of mind-boggling.”
Do you recall the post I wrote about this west coast tranny named Nadia who (allegedly) “had” the rapper Bow Wow — or at least tricked him into inviting her to his hotel room?
Probably due to her notoriety (or because Bow Wow lives here) she packed up and moved to Atlanta last year.
My spies tell me that Nadia is a regular on the ATL nightclub scene and “she” is usually always accompanied by a dude. According to my spy, it’s not immediately apparent to the thugs who jock her in the clubs that she still has her original factory equipment.
Her demeanor in the clubs is described as “shy and timid” around the male patrons — probably because she knows she’s getting just as infamous in the ATL as she was in L.A., and it may be time to move again.
It’s crazy out there. But this is just a reminder to let some of you ballers know that what you see in the clubs is not necessarily what you get.
We received this statement from Tresa Sanders, PR for Keyshia Cole. Keyshia wants you to know that her mom Frankie is sick and Keyshia is hurt and dismayed that people continue to exploit her mom’s sickness for their entertainment.
A source close to Keyshia told us Keyshia is in a very positive place and she just doesn’t think that it’s appropriate for young people to see and read about that. Her intentions is to see growth and she wants kids to see something positive and something different. That’s why she removed herself from her reality TV show because there was no growth.
Keyshia does not find this situation amusing. She clings to her relationship with God first and she’s concentrating on her unborn baby and her fiance Boobie.
I don’t keep up with Twitter drama, but clearly, looking at the statement, Keyshia values her friendship with her close friend Monica and she was probably hurt when her family dragged Mo into their mess at Christmas.
STATEMENT FROM KEYSHIA COLE
To all my friends and fans – It’s time that I clear the air. It’s not a secret that I haven’t been in contact with my mother Frankie, and my sisters Neffe and Elite and I never wanted to air out our differences to the public. While I won’t go into detail here I find it necessary to let you guys know I decided to stop communication with them because I was at a point in my life where I needed serenity and peace to move forward.
Please know I love my family very much but it was time to let it go. You guys are a witness to a lot of what was happening from watching on air and online. Now that I am becoming a mom my passion for having a loving and peaceful home for my child is my #1 priority. It’s very important to both Daniel and I. My plate is very full; I have a new baby coming, we are planning our wedding and I am working in the studio on a new album that I am close to completing. The stress that my family is giving me with their constant false reports is not healthy and it’s not what I need at this time in my life.
Please understand that there are only a few people that can officially confirm or deny anything that’s happening in my life and that’s me, Daniel, and my publicist, Tresa Sanders. And my girl Monica never lies.
Please join the Sandrarose.com family in wishing Monica and Rocko’s son Romelo Montez a Happy Birthday! He turns 2 today and he’s sitting at the computer with his mommy waiting to see his picture go up. In the photo, Monica and Romelo pose with her dad M.C. Arnold Jr. who ‘Melo got his light eyes from. Thanks to Mo for the cute pic!
New Orleans Hornets star Chris Paul and his celebrity/athlete friends got together yesterday to raise funds for his personal charity organization in New Orleans, LA. Chris Paul took home the impressive trophy prompting rapper Ludacris to jokingly tweet that Chris cheated at his own charity event.
Everybody hates convicted woman beater Chris Brown. Even LA Dodgers baseball star Matt Kemp, whose currently using Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna for some shine. Listen closely at the end of this video when Kemp slams Chris Brown for abusing his woman.
Estranged wife of disgraced golf superstar Tiger Woods was spotted out and about with their children Charlie, 10 mos. and Sam, 3, near her home in Windemere, Florida yesterday. She was shadowed by two burly Israeli-trained armed guards who looked like they meant business.
Elin has been going about her life as if nothing happened. Gold diggers are resilient like that. Her soon-to-be ex-husband is still hiding out somewhere. If we are to believe the many reports, he’s either in rehab in Arizona, or on his yacht in the Caribbean or on safari in Africa.
One place that we know he isn’t is on the estate of billionaire owner of the NY Knicks. A spokesman for Knicks owner Jim Dolan disputed reports Wednesday that Woods is hiding his face at his Long Island estate.
Singer Alicia Keys performed at the world famous Apollo theater last night. Her long extensions were flowing and her makeup was on point for once. Ak’s fans were able to interact with each other online as they watched the concert live on various blogs. I noticed that the urban blogs were once again shut out of the massive marketing promo while the “mainstream” blogs were given access to stream her concert.
Singer Usher hosted a party last night at the Aria nightclub in Las Vegas. He doesn’t seem to be bothered by the news that ALL the tracks off his album has leaked. No one I know downloaded the tracks or even bothered to search for it online. That can’t be good for his official release in March.
Pseudo singer Keri Hilson attended the party for the Grammy nominees last night at the W hotel in Buckhead. She tweeted about it before she went. Keri and Musiq Soulchild (pictured below) were the only big name artists there (if you can call Keri a big name artist). Sorry, but I don’t consider producers to be celebrities unless they can sing and dance. If that’s the case, songwriters and studio engineers need to be walking red carpets too. The word ‘celebrity’ is so overused these days. It’s ridiculous.
TV personality Khloe Kardashian flashed her obnoxiously huge 10 carat ring at the Kid Rock concert held at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas last night.
