This Christmas, it wasn’t the thought that counted, it was the diamonds!

Pop star Rihanna reportedly gave her best friend Melissa a sparkly diamond ring for Christmas!

Judging from these pics taken last night at the ‘Models & Bottles’ party at the Ship Inn Club in Barbados, it’s obvious that Melissa is thrilled to have Rihanna back in her life! Rihanna is spending the Christmas holidays in Barbados with her family and friends.


The besties dressed alike and rarely left each other’s side as the crowd sang along with every song on Rihanna’s LOUD album.

“They’re not lesbian lovers,” said my source via phone. “They have the same kind of relationship as Gayle [King] and Oprah.”

Yesterday, US Weekly magazine confirmed the split between Rihanna and Dodgers star Matt Kemp.

Word is that the insecure baseball star felt threatened by the close bond between the two women. As you know, Rihanna and Mel frequently shared beds hotel rooms while on the road — and Matt wasn’t having that.


Eventually, Rihanna got tired of Matt’s whining and she sent Melissa back home to their native Barbados.

Many of Rihanna’s fans wondered what happened to the ever-present Mel who was a staple in paparazzi pics with RiRi. Friends say Rihanna missed Melissa terribly while she traveled on tour with the moody Kemp.

Though Mel was out of the picture temporarily, she still received a weekly stipend from Rihanna as her personal assistant. Meanwhile, RiRi hired another personal assistant to travel with her and Matt.

    Rihanna looks soo unhappy :coffee: Al the time to me :shrugs:

  • kdillon

    I thought being gay is “cool” right now, so why does it matter if they are gay?

  • candibfly

    u made mimosas and ain’t share?! :crying:

  • Adair

    These pictures are bad. Melissa almost looks like Sereena and Rihanna looks like her nose is stopped up. LOL at Sandra’s write up.

  • Danielle

    Rih looks evil in that pic lol. I like her and Melissa’s friendship! It’s sad to know that because you have a bff whom you spend alot of time with your considered “gay”.

  • His_Mommy623

    @Candi, I left one on top of the pile of sweaters I just knitted 4 u bew! use ur eyes sugah!

  • Dymond

    ummmmmmm i got nothing!!! Good Friends…Good Christmas gifts

  • candibfly

  • http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1335451522 therapist1911

    How do yall determine her happiness by the selected pictures on a blog? She could be unhappy….or happy but I don’t think these pictures are an inclination of that.

  • ohpretty1

    Let them live.

  • ohpretty1

    @ therapist – I think she’s simply mugging the person with the camera. I know I’d do it. You can’t be ‘on’ all the time.

  • Eb

    So Rihanna licks it and keeps it twisted like a dread lock :coffee:

  • Dymond

    @ therapist-she looks unhappy to me in 95% of her “out and about” pics…she outta be used to the paps by now, even if they do annoy her…
    BTW, damn homie…you looking RIGHT!!
    :clap:

    Keep up the good work!!

  • candibfly

    or the party was wack :shrugs:

    that how i looked when i got drug to the club

  • His_Mommy623

    :hug: OhPretty! how u be sugah?

    @Candi, u looked so adorable and warm! :rofl:

  • Mamacita

    I don’t think she looks unhappy :shrug:

    People tell me all the time that I “look mean” whatever that means. I guess i walk around with a mug on my face. I’m not mean and I’m far from unhappy. Nobody smiles all the time…

  • His_Mommy623

    @Dymond…doesnt he tho? that damn therapist :yes: lol

  • candibfly

    i hear frequently that i look mean as well :shrugs:

  • kwall

    Melissa got some baby teefs. Look like chicklets….

  • laterthannever

    Wow Rih’s a good friend. Paying the girl while she isn’t even working? But could you imagine how awkward it would be to be your BFF’s actual personal assistant? (Vs. travel companion and shopping buddy on payroll).

  • Dawn

    I think bloggers post whatever pics fit their story. If you go over to another blog and they are trying to be anti Sandra they post positive upbeat pics. Its all to keep up chatting…

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7MJXRIqU7E&feature=related YSoSerious

    If Rhi is mad about anything, I’d think it would that a certain blogger keeps wishing her gay. :coffee:

  • laterthannever

    Usually when someone says I “Look mean” its because I’m mean mugging in anticipation of them saying some stupid ish. (Because its usually some yuck mouth). And whatdyaknow, they usually prove me right :shrug:

  • http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1335451522 therapist1911

    LOL Thanks Dymond…His_M appreciated! debating going to the gym right now to keep it tight for 2011

    @Dymond
    Thanks for responding and thanks for acknowledging Therapist again :lol:

  • candibfly

    stop debating and go!

  • AWESOME ARSENAL

    People have been telling me I look mean all my life, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. I just look the way I look. Honestly, it’s not a bad thing though, keeps folks from talking to me about anything not necessary.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    Before you go lemme rub some icey hot on the gunz for ya :wink: and anywhere else you may need it :lol:

  • His_Mommy623

    Hey take a picture of me at work some days esp before 10am and it may look like I’m a a pill away from suicide

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    @Therapist
    My lans hun Rihanna almost never appears happy and Im not saying she has to wear a permanent :grin: but she can smize or something :shrugs:

  • His_Mommy623

    People tell me I don’t smile enough but I always have random strangers striking up conversations with me…Maybe my frown isn’t “frowny” enough. :think:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWW5NhVpi_U Man, I just don’t care™

    @RIHANNA

    You go RIGHT on loving Melissa and taking good care of her! You don’t have to explain your love to anyone. It is both beautiful and natural for you and Melissa to share one another with each other. :yes:

    I bet she did some “good things” to show her appreciation for her gift. :wink:

  • Al-Ameera

    :rofl: Sandra, where do you get this stuff from?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWW5NhVpi_U Man, I just don’t care™

    Rihanna muggin hard as HAIL for that pic. Like she caught the camera man tryin to sneak an azz shot of Melissa or sumpin.

    That’s right Rihanna, protect your woman’s honor. :yes:

    @Choco….25 *embarassed* I hate ab workouts

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7MJXRIqU7E&feature=related YSoSerious

    @MzD

    I try to. And I usually succeed. I value my life and sanity. :lol:

    @Choco

    Nope. The CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) one. The DMV has a Redline subway/EL too?

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    @Yso
    Yes we do…
    @Therapist
    25 sets or just 25 crunches

  • http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1335451522 therapist1911

    @Choco

    Usually 4 sets of 25.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    @Therapist
    Okay thanks I will try sets I get sooo bored of working out but I want to for more energy and pep ya know….

  • StillASassyOne

    @Therapist

    I can get through 100 crunches in about 5 mins. I do them in sets of 40-50.

    Now…..every other excercise….takes me a while. (Mostly the cardio.)

    My stomach is hard as hell when you poke it. But because I suck at using the cardio to get it off, it’s no bueno.

    I excel at ab workouts….. (I mastered P90x on 3rd try all the way through.) And suck at the rest of it. :rofl:

    Me and my girls had a girls night in with drinks and that game. We had a ball. I clocked the high score on Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”. :champ:

  • xcal86

    This is another Whitney Houston and Robyn Crawford story. Come out already Rihanna… or at least state ur bi-sexual. Same script, different cast. Haha.

  • BruhMan5th Flr

    Man, I just don’t care™ says:

    Rihanna muggin hard as HAIL for that pic. Like she caught the camera man tryin to sneak an azz shot of Melissa or sumpin.

    Or maybe the cameraman told someone close to have Robyn look at the Camera so they could get a close up of that Golden Nugget in her left nostril….just a thought
