Actor Brian J. White took to his Twitter page yesterday to lash out at haters for questioning his reasons for marrying a LSLH Latina.
Over the weekend, White married the former Paula Da Silva in an intimate, small budget wedding attended by close friends and family.
Shortly thereafter he posted the wedding pics on his Twitter account and on Facebook. That’s when the anonymous tweets of outrage began appearing on Twitter.com from angry sistas who accused White of being another example of a self hating brotha.
White responded to the outrage by reposting tweets from his loyal followers whose sentiments he apparently shared, but maybe he was too afraid to express.
In case anyone confused his “retweets” for his own thoughts, White repeatedly tweeted this disclaimer: “NOTE: My RT’s of ur tweets do NOT = my opinion.”
But in reality the retweets must have equaled his opinion or he wouldn’t have taken the time to retweet them.
He must feel some kind of pressure (maybe from his friends?) to justify his marriage to a LSLH Latina woman. And if that’s the case, I wonder how his wife feels about all this?
Pop singer Rihanna announced over the weekend that she is updating her own Twitter page. She tweeted this pic while she was in Hawaii.
Rihanna wasted no time sparking a little controversy on Twitter by tweeting a pic of her eroding hairline (due to harsh chemicals from dyes and whatnot). RiRi has decided to let go of the lacefronts and weaves and just wear a wig like her friend Solange.
Did I tell you guys that I was recently asked to go out on tour with RiRi? Yes you read correctly. But I quickly turned down the offer, because A. I don’t fly, and B. I don’t want to leave my mom alone while I’m on the road reporting on Rihanna from behind-the-scenes. I realize it would have been a great opportunity since no blogger has even gotten an interview with Rihanna much less followed her on tour. But I am Blessed and I know that other opportunities will become available to me! Shout out to Rihanna who loves Sandrarose.com! And shout out to Def Jam label VP of A&R, Bu Thiam and Kathy Jones (Newsweek.com)!

T.I.’s son, King showed his support for his daddy by getting the movie’s title carved into his hair. Is King the coolest little 5-year-old in the South?
T.I. saluted his fans for making Takers the #1 movie in America. Yesterday the movie industry jumped the gun by proclaiming The Last Exorcism #1 before the final receipts had even been counted.
Some industry insiders secretly blamed racism for the hasty estimates. Even after Takers was proven to be the box office winner, some movie websites dragged their feet on announcing the winner.
“They all wanted [Lionsgate movie studio] to win the box office three weeks in a row,” said a label exec who asked to remain anonymous.
The film’s excited star, T.I., was on the phone Monday reaching out to media and supporters to thank them — including a personal phone call to Sandrarose.com that went unanswered due to technical problems with my garbage HTC phone. (I ended up buying a MyTouch Slide last night as a result).
“It was so tight, they kinda misinformed people prematurely and gave out the wrong information,” T.I. said in a phone interview with MTV News. “But officially, as it stands right now, ‘Takers’ is the #1 movie in the country, contrary to popular belief. In my heart, I felt it would be.”
According to BoxofficeMojo, Sony Screen Gem’s “Takers” took in $20.51 million on opening weekend, while ‘Exorcism’ pulled in a respectable $20.36 million to take the #2 spot.

Pseudo-singer Ashanti always looks fabulous when she cleans up. Too bad her flawless appearance doesn’t match her flawed voice or she would be a superstar now. Ashanti attended the 20th Annual NAACP Theatre Awards at the Directors Guild Of America yesterday in Los Angeles, California.
My spies told me that actor Lance Gross took actress LisaRaye aside and they had a long talk. I have no clue what they spoke about. You may recall that Gross’ ego was shattered after he tried to holla at LisaRaye and she brushed aside his immature advances at a party in LA. Lance had just been dumped by pseudo model Eva Pigford and he needed another Hollywood name to latch onto to keep him relevant. But LisaRaye had her guard up after being used by a man once before. Gross later denied the incident ever took place, but we had witnesses.
Actress Megan Good also attended the evening’s festivities looking hawt in a one shoulder gown!

Yes, men can be gold diggers too as evidenced by Leicester Stovell’s lawsuit against NBA star LeBron James. Stovell filed his lawsuit in June alleging he met James’ mother, Gloria, in a Washington bar in 1984, when she would have been 15 or 16 years old.
He claims he had sex with the minor child only once, and that she contacted him months later to inform him that she was pregnant. Stovell, who is an attorney, said she told him she would name their child LeBron, a combination of Leicester Bryce — Stovell’s first and middle names.
But on Monday (Aug. 30) Gloria filed a counter suit against Stovell seeking to dismiss his frivolous lawsuit on the grounds that a DNA test proved he is not the father.
Stovell claims LeBron, Gloria
and Santa’s elves tampered with the DNA test so it would show a false negative. Stovell is demanding millions in compensation for the loss of a relationship with a son that he couldn’t care less about even though he — allegedly — was informed of the child’s existence.
He claims he has been trying for three years to establish paternity, which he hopes would lead to “financial and commercial opportunities.”
But in a legal filing on Monday, James’ team of attorneys, Frederick Nance and John Burlingame, scoffed at Stovell’s demands, saying he is a gold digger (not in those exact words).
Despite early estimates that The Last Exorcism had edged out Takers for the #1 spot, a final count of the receipts proves that Takers is the #1 box office hit in America.
Sony is claiming the victory for Screen Gems’ Takers based on revised estimates including numbers from Sunday where The Last Exorcism fell behind, dropping 45% on Sunday to Takers’ 32% and that allowed Takers to win the weekend with $20.6 million to Exorcism’s $20.4 million. It’s still early and one can expect the numbers to be contested with it being so close, but right now, it looks like Takers has indeed kept Lionsgate from having their first-ever third weekend at #1.

Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union attended the Bridgehampton Polo closing day hosted by Hamptons Magazine, Bing and Dwyane Wade at Bridgehampton Polo Grounds on Saturday (Aug. 28) in Bridgehampton, New York. I see DJ Solange Knowles decided to dust off her afro wig and wear it to the closing ceremonies.
Actor Brian J. White, who everybody thought was teh ghey, got hitched over the weekend. His wife’s name is Paula, and we are not surprised at all to see that she is LSLH.
Obviously she doesn’t care about the gay rumors or the fact that her man doesn’t exactly measure up.
