Rihanna was spotted playing with the dolphins in Los Cabos, Mexico yesterday. I've decided that this new "romance" between the pop singer and LA Dodgers bench warmer Matt Kemp is completely fabricated. the evidence is abundantly clear that this relationship is strictly for publicity purposes.

First of all, look at the expression on the face of Rihanna's bulldog publicist. There's no way she could be that happy for them unless it was for publicity purposes. And why is she even on vacation with them -- right there in the water with them? Would you take your newspaper boy, dog groomer, and landscaper on vacation with you? Does that make sense?

Of course, this is nothing new in the industry. PR people have been known to fabricate relationships to quiet rumors of homosexuality (as in this case with Rihanna). But normally the celebrity client is a male who got caught out there as is the case with Tyler Perry and the PR people swing into damage control. But no one believed me when I said Rihanna was a lesbun anyway. So why the fake relationship? Unless she's trying to get back at convicted woman beater Chris Brown. But that would be so petty.

A loyal reader emailed me these pics of rapper Ludacris and a chick that were taken in September at Dreamz nightclub here in Atlanta. The reader wondered if this was the same girl as the one with Luda in the pics I posted earlier this week.

It's so hard to tell. Rapper are so unoriginal. They pick their chicks the same way they shop for cars: the model and body style has to be the same as what every other rapper drives. I'm just being real.

But if it isn't her, then Luda has some explaining to do because home girl is kissin' and huggin' on him like she knows exactly what size condoms he wears.

I'm told the chick in the more recent pics is his "longtime girlfriend" -- meaning they've been together longer than 6 months.

It looks like it could be her, but I'm not certain. What do you think?

I know you've seen some of the pics from Sean "Diddy" Combs' ultra private New Year's bash on the lanai of his palatial mansion on Star Island in Miami, Florida (lanai is a fancy word for patio). But you haven't seen these pics yet (I don't think).

I didn't get an invite to the splashy affair (if you don't have at least 5 figures in your checking account, you weren't invited). But I had a spy in the house who gave me the inside scoop. I can't tell you everything all at once. I have to save some news for a later date.

Convicted woman beater Chris Brown's new girlfriend Rhea is a well ran through industry jump off who probably knows the intimate details of just about every rapper in the biz. There really isn't anything to distinguish her from any other industry jump off. They all look exactly the same. You know, light skinned, long hair, dumb as door knobs (am I lying?)

Thanks to loyal reader tunanny for the video link! It confirms what my loyal reader wrote in this email about Rhea carrying the jockstraps of the G Unit goons (she calls it "networking"). These rappers are so lame. They will happily sleep with anything that their boys ran up in like it's some kind of honor to pass these skanks around between them.

This is a new section for 2010. It is a section dedicated to exposing industry gold diggers and (if we know their identities) the cheating dogs who support and love them. This is also a heads up to the long suffering wives of industry ballers, rappers and professional athletes to start calling out these gold diggers who prey on your men like hunters on the Serengeti.

If they have the cojones to call your house bragging that they just slept with your man, you need to put them on front street! Why should they get 40% of your household income for laying on their backs? Isn't that your job?

If you know the identity of a gold digger whose rent and car notes are being paid for out of you and your husband's joint bank account, just drop us a line at sandra @ sandrarose.com (remove the the spaces). Try to include photos and documentation (if you have any). It's high time for these chicks to find another source of income or go stand on the unemployment line.

Our first Gold Digger jump down of 2010 is Vanessa Veasley. Vanessa is your typical gold digger/ jump off who relies on your man to support the lifestyle she has grown accustomed to.

Vanessa is rumored to have slept with rapper Drake -- and damn near everybody in the industry. She allegedly got pregnant by him (more on that after the break). It's time for industry wives (and girlfriends) to take back their homes and lives!

The following are emails from two industry insiders who are familiar with Vanessa Veasley and the men she has (allegedly) stalked, laid up with, had babies by, etc.

I swear Kim and Khloe Kardashian can make road kill look sexy! Now I understand why they are such a hot commodity in the marketing world. they've come a long way from glamorous trailer trash to TVs top pitch women.

Last month Kim made salad sexy and now Kim and her sister Khloe take it off for QuickTrim, a so-called "fast cleansing and detoxifying" diet.

Anytime I see the words "cleansing" and "detoxifying" in the same sentence, I am automatically skeptical. So I went to the website, and sure enough, it's one of those lemon drink cleansing deals, which really doesn't cleanse anything.

Once again, ladies, colon cleansing to lose weight is a scam. Don't waste your money (or your health) on lemon flavored scams. Just eat right and exercise properly. Don't forget to drink a lot of water and you'll lose the weight.

The Internets are all abuzz about woman beater Chris Brown's newest side piece Rhea formerly of the group N.E.R.D. Brown and Rhea spent the holiday weekend together in Miami where they shared a luxury rented mansion.

We know Chris can't be serious about this chick since he obviously hasn't resolved his Oedipus issues involving his mother and because of that, he hates all women. Good luck to Rhea.

A loyal reader from Toronto claims to know intimate details about her. I'll let him tell you after the break:

I get the feeling that Rihanna is not exactly comfortable with Matt as a love object. It seems she can't go anywhere without a crowd of her friends tagging along. Either that or Matt Kemp is a very confident man. Most men don't go for that 3 is a crowd thing.

It's common knowledge that when a female isn't comfortable with a man (at least initially) she asks her friends to tag along just in case. Yesterday, Rihanna (who is still vacationing in Mexico with baseball player Matt Kemp) was spotted leaving a shop with Matt, BFF Melissa (with her back to the camera) and another friend wearing a horrid wig.

I don't see this relationship lasting. Especially since it's obvious that Matt Kemp is an industry whore who runs through females like he's changing underwear.

Normally I ignore all communications from readers regarding that other lesbun blogger who has been so disrespectful to me in the past. But in the new year I have decided to forgive my enemies and instead I will show them love and understanding.

Yesterday, a loyal reader sent this photo of Necole that was sufficiently alarming enough to rate a response from me. She does look sick -- and not in a good way. Like she might be anorexic -- or lonely and depressed.

Necole, if you need any help kicking your habit, you have my number.

Loyal reader Simone writes:

Hi Sandra,

I know you and Necole B*** had beef in the past but I was wondering if you saw the pictures from her alter ego shoot? Sandra she looks like a 12 year old boy on crack. I think she needs an intervention. Maybe you should post this picture in the hopes that she sees it and checks herself into rehab.


To add this pic sent in by loyal reader Stacy. It's supposedly Necole dressed up as Rihanna on the cover of her platinum CD 'Rated R'. I don't think celebrity photographer Derek Blanks likes Necole very much.

The NY Post wrote a scathing piece today slamming burlesque singer Beyonce for performing a private 1-hour concert for the son of Muslim Libyan terrorist, Moammar Khadafy.

This is more evidence that celebrities will do anything for money and fame.

Beyonce performed for an hour on New Year's Eve at a party thrown by terror-backing Libyan dictator Moammar Khadafy's son, Hannibal, who has a long record of violence against women.

Some vacationers on the island were aghast. DJ Sam Young tweeted: "Jigga [Jay-Z], Beyonce & Usher were @ Nikki Beach performing for Khadafy family, WTF?" Read More...

Apparently, Khadafy's son Hannibal beat his wife to a pulp inside their hotel room over the Christmas holidays. The wife suffered a broken nose, among other injuries, and had to be hospitalized.

The criticism is so damaging that Beyonce's camp at first denied that Beyonce received a $2 million fee to perform. Then they denied that Beyonce even performed. But music magnate Russell Simmons already tweeted the pics from the concert and confirmed that she was there performing. It remains to be seen how this one will play out.

Thanks to loyal reader Gina for the tip!

We know that R&B singer Usher was in St. Barths with his lady love Grace Miguel (who moved into his Atlanta mansion last year). So why is he holding hands with a man? We're going to give Ush the benefit of the doubt and say that's his bodyguard.

Rapper Drake was spotted out & about in Miami over the holiday weekend. We see at least one thing he got for Christmas. That Hermes belt retails for about $350. By the way, did you know that Drake got a jump down pregnant and she either aborted the baby or lost it? Notice I wrote "jump down" and not jump off. Anyway, that's the rumor that's going around the industry. I'll post her pic as soon as I gather a little more intel.


A couple of loyal readers emailed me to ask what death by "natural causes" means. In the last three weeks we've read about two high profile deaths attributed to natural causes: actress Brittany Murphy and heiress Casey Johnson, who was found dead in LA yesterday morning.

Death by natural causes simply means the deceased had a preexisting condition (disease, long term illness, etc.) that caused the death. Natural causes also applies if the coroner can't find a cause of death and there is no evidence of foul play or homicide.

Hospitals are known to cover up medical negligence cases by attributing a patient's death to natural causes. The patient's death is by natural causes, therefore, there is usually no autopsy performed. It's left up to the patient's family to demand an autopsy if there is any hint that negligence was involved.

In Brittany Murphy's case, she was diagnosed with type 2 (non-insulin dependent) diabetes and was reportedly very sick (nausea and vomiting) for days before she collapsed and died of cardiac arrest. It's very likely that her cardiac arrest was brought on by severe dehydration from vomiting.

Remember that rush you felt the first time you saw the movie trailer for The Matrix? Well, get ready. The laughs start about 11 seconds into this trailer for the movie 'Hit Girl' coming to a theater near you this Spring. Your kids will never be the same after watching this movie.


I keep forgetting that sistas are into down low men now as long as they don't drag their trades home with them or embarrass her in front by eyeballing her male friends in her presence. These are desperate times we're living in, what with so many successful single black women and so few available straight black men.

Model Keston Carter is ESSENCE magazine's "Eye candy of the week." I'm sure ESSENCE mag is well aware of the rumors and the fact that KK is, or was, Terrell Carter's eye candy. But they are trying to sell magazines. And since he plays his role very well...

I'll let my loyal reader tell it:

LOL!!! YESSSS speaking of gay, look who is this week's Essence Eye Candy Of The week....

Now I know for FACT that brotha is on the DL and nooobody can tell me otherwise I know the BOY he use to "talk" to. He may be hiding it now that he is out more in the industry but Sandra he's gay and is NOT interested in any women. He uses them to sell his calendars. But the boy he use to talk to told me Keston will be appearing in Letoya Luckett's new video. And is really trying hard to put those "gay rumors" to rest. I'll keep you posted we may have another Terrell Carter scandal on our hands.

Police are looking into whether the death of a Hollywood Socialite was caused by natural causes, suicide or a homicide. Casey Johnson, heiress to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, was found dead early yesterday morning in L.A. Police say Johnson had been dead for several days. She was 30.

Johnson was recently engaged to bisexual reality TV personality Tila Tequila. According to TMZ.com who spoke with Tequila earlier today:

She says they were fighting last week and that Casey stayed at Tila's house on the 28th. Tila tried contacting Casey on the 29th because Casey had left her dogs behind. Tila says Casey's phone has been shut off since the 29th and she was not able to make contact. Read More...

Johnson was arrested in November for grand theft. The victim was a former girlfriend. Johnson's father is Woody Johnson -- owner of the New York Jets.

Whatever happened to the days when bloggers exercised our freedom to express our opinions, and celebrities (or in this case, pseudo-celebrities) would just ignore us and go on about their business?

Don't they understand that when they respond to us bloggers they only magnify the situation and make it bigger than what it is?

Here's what singer Keri Hilson tweeted on her Twitter page just a few hours ago:

Now that message doesn't jibe with the photo does it? "Not 1 oz of negativity"? "Keep it positive"? That photo doesn't look very positive does it? This is a classic case of a celebrity who thinks her fans are dumb and blind. Maybe where Keri is from, the middle finger is a symbol of peace, love and respect.

Why is anyone surprised that Ludacris has a girlfriend? We already know he's not gay. Lawd knows he's one of the few heterosexual men in all of Hip Hop. It's common knowledge that Luda broke up with his baby mama Christine eons ago. By the way, in case you forgot, Christine is an Atlanta based attorney, who stacks her own paper thank you very much.

I bet I know her. It's so hard to tell the difference between these Atlanta chicks. They all look alike. No originality whatsoever. But doesn't Luda's girlfriend look clean and wholesome like he found her in a library or in a grocery store aisle?


Alert readers emailed me to say that Antonia "Toya" Carter was displeased with my earlier post about her boy toy, rapper Memphitz. Toya took to her Twitter page to say:


Now, I just know Toya isn't calling me a liar when there was a room full of people who heard exactly what her daughter said? In fact, my home girl was also in the room and she heard every word. Neither of us could understand why a grown man would want to push a small child's face in? Especially when the accidental knock down was clearly unintentional on the boy's part.

It seems to me that Toya is being overly sensitive about my post because I implied that her boyfriend was less than a man for wanting to fight a little kid. I suppose she felt the need to go there and defend his manhood especially after reading the part where I wrote: "I just can't see James Hardy on school grounds trying to push a little kid's face in."

Or maybe Toya was feeling some kind of way because my loyal reader wrote in to say that Memphitz was stepping out on her already?

I had no clue not that I really cared that rapper Nelly outsold Jay Z, Eminem, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Lil wayne and others to be named the biggest selling rapper of the decade.

This, according to Nelly himself who performed a New Year's Eve concert in Las Vegas along with his home boy Jermaine Dupri.

“Actual factual. It’s a lot of n****z talkin’ on it ’cause I just don’t scream on it. I am the biggest selling rap artist of the decade!," said Nelly to the sold out crowd of revelers.

Well, good for him.


Pop singer Rihanna put all rumors to rest this weekend when she was spotted out and about with her personal assistant Melissa, left, and her new love, baseball player Matt Kemp, right, otherwise known as LeToya Luckett's leftovers.

I don't know about you ladies, but I refuse to date a woman who has slept with anyone that I know. It's just the principal of the thing. Matt looks roadkill on a blistering hot Summer day. He needs to shave his face and do something with his overall style. Like Chris Brown, I don't see what she sees in him. I guess she likes light skinned men who don't look like much of anything.

I don't see this one lasting.

Disgraced golf champ Tiger Woods covers Vanity Fair magazine this month. It's an old picture culled from the archives of celebrity photographer Annie Liebowitz, snapped before his monumental fall from grace.

Here's an excerpt form the article in Vanity Fair magazine. I didn't know any of this:

Tiger’s story has been driven by sex, tons of it, in allegedly all different varieties: threesomes in which he greatly enjoyed girl-on-girl, and mild S&M (featuring hair-pulling and spanking); $60,000 pay-for-sex escort dates; a quickie against the side of a car in a church parking lot; a preference for porn stars and nightclub waitresses, virtually all of them with lips almost as thick as their very full breasts; drug-bolstered encounters designed to make him even more of a conquistador (Ambien, of all things); immature sex-text messages (“Send me something naughty ... Go to the bathroom and take [a picture],” “I will wear you out ... When was the last time you got [laid]?”); soulful confessions that he got married only for image and was bored with his wife; regular payments of between $5,000 and $10,000 each month to keep his harem quiet. It’s all there and more in what is the greatest single fall in popularity of a nonpolitician in the history of public-opinion surveys: a drop in approval from 87 percent in 2005 to 33 percent, with an unfavorable rating of 57 percent, according to a recent USA Today/Gallup poll. Read More...

I still don't feel sorry for him.

Pseudo singer Keri Hilson celebrated New Year's at Karu & Y nightspot in Miami where she gave a middle fanga salute to all her hatahs. Keri was the subject of much hate on the blogs in 2009. So you really can't blame her for giving her haters the For U. Unfortunately, 2010 won't be much better for her unless she suddenly and miraculously learns how to sing in key.

Singer Akon looked so fine in his Armani suit down in Miami when he helped his artist Lady GaGa ring in the New Year.

Former TLC member T-Boz spent her New Year weekend bowling with the Traxx Girls lesbuns at 10 Pin Alley at Atlantic Station. Oh, you didn't hear that T-Boz dumped her linebacker boyfriend Takeo Spikes and tipped over to the other side? Well, you didn't hear it from me.

This is the custom whip that T-Boz pulled up in. I would be lying if I said I didn't envy those rims.

It was a ghey fest on the set of BET's 106 & Park last week as Trey Song and Omarion battled it out for the Teh Gheyest male singer of the year.

Honestly, Trey doesn't help his situation when he takes pics like this.

How U doooinnnn?

The Secret Service are investigating a report that an effigy of U.S. president Barack Obama was found hanging by a noose from a building in Plains, Georgia this weekend.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the large black doll was found Saturday morning along Main Street in the small town of Plains.

According to footage from WALB-TV, the doll was hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that says "Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President." A witness told the television station that the doll wore a sign with Obama's name on it.

Donovan said the doll was removed Saturday. He declined further comment. Read More...

I didn't tell you guys about the evening I spent watching a rehearsal for Tiny and Shamra Rodriguez's girl group the OMG Girlz, which includes Tiny's daughter Zonnique. For those who don't know, Shamra is the mother of the sisters in the group, Bahja and Lourdez.

Last month I was invited to a studio on the west side to watch the OMG Girlz give a private audition for BET (I guess they're getting their own reality show). Tiny was there putting the girls through their paces as they warmed up before the show.

After the group warmed up, Lil Wayne's daughter Reginae, who is the most talkative in the group, entertained the adults with a story about how some boy pushed her down at school that week. I wasn't really paying attention until she mentioned that some guy wanted to smack the kid up for pushing her.

The dude actually ordered Reginae to point the little boy out to him. Naturally, it piqued my interest when she mentioned that the dude was "my mommy's boyfriend."

I had several questions -- all of which I kept to myself. The biggest question on my mind: what was a grown man doing at an elementary school picking on small kids? I just assumed that Toya's new beau would be a grown man considering that she just got out of a relationship with a grown man.

To me it just made sense that Toya would leave a grown man for another grown man. You know what I'm sayin'? I just can't see James Hardy on school grounds trying to push a little kid's face in.

This was before I knew that Toya's new man was Memphitz, aka "Sexi face", some unknown rapper who's probably only using her to get some shine. This is the boy who bought Toya that pink gun that was all over twitter last year.

I have to remember that Toya is kinda young in the mind herself. Peep the tattoo she got on her finger to remind herself that she's in love. You know how kids are. They aren't entirely convinced that they're in love unless they mutilate their bodies.

At least she's in love until she finds out that ol' boy is stepping out on her already. This, according to a loyal reader who knows Memphitz well.

We don't have much in the way of real celebrities anymore now that psuedo singers and reality TV personalities have just about taken over. The music industry realizes that the genre is dying and have quickly switched their focus to white celebs like Lady GaGa and the newcomer white rapper Ke$ha.

What few celebs we still have left celebrated their New Year in the typical fashion. Beyonce spent the week in St. Barths with Jay Z on the French Riviera. She performed a New Year's Eve concert for the wealthy elite who could afford to be gouged on the ticket prices.

By the way, some of you may recall me mentioning Beyonce's stage manager/tour director(?) Kim Burse whom I had dinner with a while back (follow her on Twitter). Well, Kim is the one who auditioned and hired Beyonce's lesbun lady band. So you can thank her for the guitarist chick with all the crazy tats.

I told you that convicted woman beater Chris Brown would be partying on a private yacht near Miami Beach.

Brown and Bow Wow hung pretty tight the whole weekend.

At one point, Brown's camp got a little nervous and invited a buxom beauty to take pics with Brown to throw off the rumor mongers.

It didn't work

Unfortunately, the other celebs I mentioned didn't bother to show up to the private yacht party.

According to my friend, Akon's brother Bu Thiam, VP of Def Jam, who invited me to Miami for the Lady GaGa concert -- only Brown, LisaRaye, Polow Da Don, and new group The Rich Girls (one of whom is pictured above with Chris) showed up to party on the boat. Bu blamed the cold weather in Miami for the low turnout. But everyone still had fun as much fun as one can have with a convicted woman beater on board.

I also asked Bu about the incident involving Lady GaGa. The tabloids said she took a nasty spill while performing her New Year's Eve concert at the Fountainebleu hotel on Miami Beach. Bu said she did fall, but the blood was fake. "She just be on her artist sh*t. GaGa is an artist. You know how artists are. They just do crazy sh*t. She's all good," said Bu, who hung out with rapper Young Jeezy all weekend in Miami.

According to WSB-TV, a local rapper/producer is behind bars charged with the shooting death of a friend. Police say Damon Martin, 35, of Detroit, was shot and killed early Friday morning at the sprawling Hampton, GA home of local rapper Shawty Redd.

Redd, real name Demetrius Stewart, 28, initially told cops the New Year's Day shooting was accidental. But following an investigation, cops leaned the shooting was the result of an argument which turned physical.

Shawty Redd is mostly known for his production work on Young Jeezy's albums and for producing Snoop Dogg's hit "Sexual Seduction" off his 'Ego Trip' CD.

If you recall, Redd took to the blogs two years ago to complain that he never got paid for producing tracks on Jeezy's mixtape and CDs.

Redd is currently being held in the Henry County jail without bond. A preliminary hearing scheduled for Saturday is reset to Jan. 12. His only hope for freedom is if his legal counsel can convince a jury that the shooting was in self defense.


A 4-year-old boy was killed by a stray bullet during a late night New Year's Eve church service in Decatur, GA -- a suburb of Atlanta.

Lloyd Phipps, senior pastor at the Church of God of Prophecy near Decatur, told the AJC that Marquel Roberts was sitting beside his mother playing a hand held video game while waiting for a live concert to begin at 12:30 a.m.

"We heard a loud pop, which we now assume was when the bullet came through the roof," Phipps said.

Pastor Phipps said the child fell to the floor and at first seemed unconscious before awakening and crying. Members of the congregation prayed over the boy and then returned to watching the concert while an ambulance raced Marquel to a local hospital where he later died.

Church members were still enjoying the concert at 3:30 a.m. when they learned of the boys death. DeKalb police investigators returned to the church the next day and found the bullet's point of entry in the roof. Police believe someone fired a celebratory shot in the air and it fell through the roof on its way back down. They have no suspects.

"It's one of those things that you just cannot make any sense out of," Phipps said. "This lady took her kid to church, which is the right thing to do. And her son got killed because of someone’s irresponsible behavior."
