NBA baller Carmelo Anthony celebrated his 26th birthday with family and friends at Phillippe Restaurant in LA on Sunday (May 30).


LaLa ordered up a custom birthday cake for her fiance who has been on his best behavior since he put that ring on her finger last year. The lavish wedding is next month and it will be televised by VH1. Coincidentally, T.I. and Tiny are set to say their ‘I do’s’ this month at an unknown location (not in Atlanta).

Fame is a funny thing. For some, fame can be as fleeting and elusive as a Spring shower. Take Fabolous’ brother Ruggs, for instance. Though he’s well-known within music industry circles as Loso’s brother, Ruggs always flew under the radar for the rest of us — until last week when, in a moment of anger, he (allegedly) slapped the taste out of a groupie’s mouth, and it was all caught on video.

Last week, in closed door meetings with BP executives, Barack Obama and key members of his administration were assured that BP was on top of the oil leak disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and that their latest effort to stop the leak was almost a sure bet.

So with BP’s assurances tucked under his belt, Obama went before network cameras on Friday to do what he does best: claim a victory before it has even happened.

After weeks of playing golf and largely ignoring the oil leak, Obama declared, “the buck stops with me.” Obama took responsibility for the BP disaster, and he said his White House was “in charge” of the efforts to plug the leak in the crippled oil well that has already spewed 18 million gallons of crude oil into the Gulf.

The BP oil leak, which is entering its 43rd day, has overtaken 1989’s Exxon Valdez disaster as the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.

Just before jetting off to Chicago with his family to begin his Memorial Day weekend, Obama assured residents of Louisiana that he was calling all the shots and he forcefully pledged to “shut this down”.

That was on Friday (May 28) when Obama thought for sure that the leak would be plugged, and he would once again get credit for something he didn’t do.
