Actress and reality star LisaRaye was spotted partying last night at the Gold Room in Atlanta. She got cozy in the VIP with her new man, former Falcons player Jamal Anderson, right. Oops, I wasn’t supposed to put that out there yet. Please disregard what I just wrote. LR is not dating Jamal. I repeat, LR is not dating Jamal!
Actress Stacey Dash, former NBA player Allen Iverson, left, and others were also at the Gold Room last night. More pics tomorrow.
US president Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright is at it again. He is protesting loudly to anyone who will listen that The One threw him under the bus. Haven’t we heard this song and dance already?
It seems that back in February, a group calling itself Africa 6000 asked Wright to use his influence with Obama to get Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to fork over some of the millions of dollars in Haiti earthquake relief funds.
But according to Hot Air, Wright told the group he was “toxic” — and he then vented his frustration against Obama:
In his strongest language to date about the administration’s 2-year-old rift with the Chicago pastor, Wright told a group raising money for African relief that his pleas to release frozen funds for use in earthquake-ravaged Haiti would likely be ignored.
“No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am ‘toxic’ in terms of the Obama administration,” Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International earlier this year.
“I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!” he wrote. “Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!”
As Hot Air write Ed Morrissey writes: “Does this tell us anything we don’t know about Barack Obama?”
Everyone thought troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was still pining away for her former lover, DJ Samantha Ronson. But LiLo fooled everyone. According to online reports, she’s been quietly dating a 36-year-old Cougar, and things are heating up between them.
Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been dating 36-year-old photographer and reality television star Indrani, who worked with the 23-year old starlet on a photo shoot last fall.
Indrani, who is also known as Julia I. Pal-Chaudhuri works with photographer Markus Klinko, who told the NY Post, “Lindsay and Indrani have been seeing each other since we shot her last fall. I’ve seen them on dates, I have seen them making out. Indrani is a good influence on Lindsay. She is the opposite of a party girl — a Princeton graduate, she’s into art and is a philanthropist — not what you’d expect the typical girl for Lindsay to go out with. When they are together, they talk about art and the deeper meaning in life.”
The two have been on several dates in Los Angeles and Indriani recently spent the night at Lindsay’s hotel. Indrani reportedly told the Post, “We have been spending a lot of time together. I have never had a relationship with a woman before, but Lindsay is just somebody who I find fascinating, gorgeous and extremely smart, as well as super-hot. Lindsay gets a lot of bad press, but she’s a really strong, creative woman and is trying really hard to get her life in a good, positive place.”
Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown was spotted in the Sao Paolo, Rio airport yesterday. The difference between Chris Brown’s career last year and this year is clearly evident in the photos. Last year you would have seen pandemonium as Cb’s bodyguards try to hold his fans back.
As you can see from these pics, no one is checking for him. It’s almost as if the people in the airport have no clue who he is. It is sad any time a once promising career dies, but Chris Brown brought this upon himself.
It seems that Drake’s new music video has angered the Jamaican tourism officials who object to the video’s violent image of the Caribbean island.
The video for “FInd Your Love”, which features Drake’s first attmept at singing all the way through a track, was directed by Anthony Mandler. The video features Drake’s beard, stripper-turned-video vixen Maliah Michel, and a drug lord named “Puffy” who directs Maliah to shoot Drake’s character n the head.
“Care has to be taken by all, including our creative artists, in portraying images of our destination and people,” a Jamaican tourism official says. “Gun culture, while not unique to Jamaica, is not enhancing (the island’s image).”
That’s funny, because my family members in Jamaica say the situation is dire over there. They say there have been 500 murders so far this year.
First of all let me tell you I love your site. The women on twitter was going crazy on this dude name Brandon that was on Chilli’s show on Sunday night.

Just thought I would share with the rest of your readers.
Actress Stacey Dash partied at Compound on Saturday night in Atlanta. Judging from the pictures, it looks like Stacey was feeling no pain. My spies tell me she was very nice and spoke to everyone who approached her. She also took pictures with anyone who asked. Sounds like she had fun!
The party continues for Stacey tonight at the Gold Room. I think I’ll go out tonight and pop a few bottles in the VIP with Stacey. Shout out to Alex Gidewon and the Gidewon Group!
Unlike rapper T.I., Gucci Mane came out of jail last week with all cylinders firing. While T.I. took time off to be with his his fiancee and kids before hitting the studio, Gucci went straight from jail to the studio and hasn’t slowed down yet.
So far since being released from the Fulton County lockup on Wednesday, May 12, Gucci has filmed 3 music videos and recorded enough tracks to fill an album.
GIVING BACK IS SO SEXY

Widely believed to be Hip Hop’s gay rapper (second only to Busta Rhymes), Canadian rapper Drake performed live at the Sungod Festival at UCSD in San Diego, CA on Friday (May 14). It must be hard for Drake to shake that ‘wheelchair Jimmy’ image from his Degrassi Jr high days. I hear that Drake’s hired beard Maliah Michel is back in Texas working the pole for her sugar daddy who owns the strip club where she works. She tried her best to help defuse the gay rumors surrounding Drake. But she only had so much to work with…
