Poor Whitney Houston looked exhausted and worn out when the paps caught up to her at the airport in Australia early this morning. The Australians gave the legendary singer a rough time during a concert there last week. They booed her vigorously during her performance, but that's alright, people booed jazz legend Miles Davis too while he was alive -- until they finally figured out that he was eccentric and his show wasn't going to be the same normal routine every time.

I may not like pseudo singer Ciara, but I can't deny she has a bangin' body. Even though she can't sing a lick, I can appreciate all the hard work she puts into toning her marvelous physique (step your game up Keri Hilson!). Ciara attended Mariah Carey's official end of tour party at Haze Nightclub at the Aria Resort & Casino at CityCenter last night in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Sean "Puffy" Combs and his baby mama, Kim Porter, took their twins Jessie James and D'lilah Star out for a walk last night in West Hollywood. They were surrounded by a security team as they shopped at Kitson For Kids. Kim's friends assure me that they're not back together and that Kim has moved on with her life. But it's commendable that Sean remains a big part of his children's lives.
Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson gave the kids the serious femme queen vibe on the red carpet at the 41st Annual NAACP Awards yesterday in L.A. For those who don't know, a femme queen is a male in drag who wears a ton of makeup and takes hormones in order to achieve a look that is highly feminine. Oh, did I tell you that Keri is rumored to be bisexual?
America's Next Top Model alumni Eve Pigford is what comedian Lil Duval refers to as "small picture cute." Eva should never take close ups. Ever. And she should leave all that makeup overkill to the trannies who gives such good face better than she does. A mess.
Awww, this is such a sweet picture! Comedian Mo'Nique, left, paid homage to the newest Superstar on the scene, Gabourey Sidibe, who took home the Best Actress trophy last night at the 41st NAACP Image awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in L.A.
Comedian Chris Rock can't get enough of Gabourey! The two stars hugged onstage at the 41st Annual NAACP Awards in L.A. last night. The star of Precious took home multiple honors last night, including the coveted Best Actress Award! Good for her!
A while back I promised you ladies that singer/songwriter Sean Garrett would chat live with you on Sandrarose.com. Well, Sean has agreed to take some time out of his busy schedule to chat with you guys tonight! He's online now so get your questions ready.
You can also follow along on Sean Garrett's Ustream page here.
Don't forget, Sean will select a few of you to spend some the day with him inside his studio so you can watch a master at work! Those of you without Gravatar pics will not be considered. Sean wants to see who he's picking to come to his studio.
Sean also asks that you keep it clean tonight. Don't act out of pocket or ask him dirty questions. He knows you want his Hawt body, but he wants you to save the sex talk for when you see him in person! Hey, you never know, I might meet you at his studio that day too!
It's a wonder that there is still room up under that yellow bus for more of Barack Obama's friends. The latest casualty to go under the bus wheels is Obama's friend and confidant Desiree Rogers.
The White House just released this statement:
"We are enormously grateful to Desiree Rogers for the terrific job she's done as the White House Social Secretary. When she took this position, we asked Desiree to help make sure that the White House truly is the People's House, and she did that by welcoming scores of everyday Americans through its doors, from wounded warriors to local schoolchildren to NASCAR drivers.
It was inevitable that Desiree had to go once the news broke about that reality TV couple who crashed a state dinner at the White House last year.
Rogers should have been manning her post at the gate checking to make sure her guests were actually invited. But instead she was inside the party looking cute and parading in front of the photographers. From the beginning it was clear that Desiree thought the White House was party central and she was the Grand Diva of the ball.
Even before she left Chicago bound for DC, rumors swirled that Desiree and Barack had a thing for each other. But those rumors died quickly when it became apparent that Obama is a cerebral narcissist, and most cerebral narcissists show no interest in sex at all.
It's almost a sure bet that Barack and Michelle have a sexless marriage which accounts for her flat affect and miserable disposition in public.
Anyway, I hate to toot my own horn and say that I was right about Desiree Rogers, but didn't I call it from the beginning?
Lil Wayne's artist, singer, Shanell, celebrated the launch of her single last night in midtown. Regarding the rumors that she's pregnant by Lil Wayne ( ) she said:
”Basically it came from a corny rumor that escalated. First I was dating him, then I was his girlfriend, then we were getting married, then we were settling down and now I’m pregnant. It’s so foolish we’ve haven’t paid it any attention. All the rest of the rumors were kinda funny except that one. When my mother called me like, ‘Um?,’ [I was] like, No! Are you serious? I don’t care about the rumors, but I just want people to know that I’m not pregnant. I’ve got an album coming out, I’m a dancer, I’m in shape and children are not anywhere in my future.”
R&B crooner Sammie, left, celebrated his 22nd birthday party at VICE Nightclub in downtown Atlanta on Wednesday night. Vivica A. Fox's man Slimm promoted the party. I hear young Sammie was getting it in with a whole bunch of girls at the party. But Slimm paid the groupies no mind. He was all business while stacking his chips. You know his stock went way up now that he's with a starrah. Photo by Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Singer Lady GaGa was spotted leaving a London restaurant wearing this twisted tree stump on her head. At least she gets paid the big bucks to look this ridiculous. Photo: INF Photo
I would have posted this pic of actor Lance Gross and his girlfriend, Eva Pigford, in my Morning Wood post, but Eva has her hands all in the cookie pot ruining the view. Maybe Lance will post more pics of himself alone in all his chocolate glory on his Twitter page.
I have to hand it to Carmelo's baby mama, LaLa Vasquez, that is one gorgeous LSLH chica. A definite step above your average video vixen. LaLa attended the 41st NAACP Image Awards Nominees Pre-Show Gala Reception at the Milk Studios last night in L.A.
Rapper/actor Ludacris showed off his pearly whites during an appearance on fuse TV at fuse Studios in NYC yesterday.
