As you know, new parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon left UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (May 14) with their 14-day-old twins. The couple left the hospital under the cover of night, surrounded by tight security and using elaborate security measures to prevent the paparazzi camped outside from getting shots of the newborns. The children were swathed in blue and pink blankets in the back seat of their Rolls Royce Phantom.
Mariah, who reportedly underwent a tummy tuck after delivering her twins via C-section, wore black Tori Burch sandals, while Nick’s size 13 feet were clad in Timberland boots.
According to RadarOnline.com, Mariah is still under scrutiny from Child Protective Services. A CPS social worker is investigating Mimi after receiving a complaint that she was drinking beer and popping pain pills while nursing her babies. Cannon explained that Mariah was advised to drink Guinness Stout beer to stimulate the production of milk in her breasts. But the beer story had holes in it from the start, given the fact that Mariah has breast implants.
The CPS worker will make one final 30-minute home visit with the Cannons before closing the case — after sneaking a hidden camera inside.

Those of you who suspected eccentric TV talk show Guru Oprah Winfrey was a little crazy, just might have a point there.
Oprah, 57, has revealed the real reason why she’s ending her wildly popular ‘Oprah Show’ after only 25 years on the air.
In an editorial published in her ‘O’ magazine this month, Oprah revealed that a dying 12-year-old boy told her to end her show at the 25-year mark.
…Winfrey says that Mattie Stepanek – a child author who had a rare form of muscular dystrophy – told her that she should end the Oprah show only after it had been on the air for 25 years. He sent her the e-mail in May 2003, 13 months before he died at the age of 13.
Winfrey, 57, says: ‘At the 20-year mark, I was almost certain that the time was finally right to call it a day (although I was uncertain about what to do next.)
‘That’s when I received an e-mail from Mattie Stepanek.
Winfrey has published the entire e-mail that Stepanek wrote to her from his hospital bed. In it he told the millionaire: ‘I know that you are planning to retire your show on its 20th anniversary. ‘It is my opinion that you should wait to stop your daytime show on its 25th anniversary. Let me explain why.
‘Twenty-five makes more sense to me, partially because I am a bit OCD [obsessive compulsive] and 25 is a perfect number.’ Source
From NY Post’s Page Six:
The relationship between Amar’e Stoudemire and Ciara is so close, the singer joined her Knicks boyfriend on his night out with the boys in Miami this weekend. Stoudemire partied with 15 male friends at Prime One Twelve in South Beach. But when the group went to party at club Cameo, Ciara met up with her basketball beau, who danced alongside her all night. Sources said that while Stoudemire kept his focus on his lady, security guards had to shoo away female admirers who tried in vain to get his attention. Source
According to the NY Post’s Page Six, the former manager of singers Akon and Brandy, Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, is on the lam from the law.
A Federal arrest warrant is out for hip-hop mogul Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, who manages Brandy, Sean Kingston and Akon. Sources say the warrant was issued last week for the Czar Entertainment chief after he was indicted for alleged involvement in cocaine distribution, and he has yet to be located. A law enforcement official confirmed that a fugitive warrant is out for Rosemond. His lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, said, “Although a federal prosecutor has told me that there is an arrest warrant out, they have refused to provide me with the warrant or a copy of the charges.”
Rosemond also managed rapper The Game, singers Groove Theory and Mario Winans, among others. He’s most notable for being accused of setting up rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot multiple times during a botched robbery at a New York recording studio in November 1994. 2Pac survived his wounds only to be assassinated in Las Vegas in September 1996.
Rosemond also made the news in 2005 when G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo was arrested and charged with assault for smacking Rosemond’s then 14-year-old son, Lil Henchman.
By now many of you know about former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s separation from his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver (of the Kennedy dynasty). You didn’t bat an eye when you read that he’d cheated on his wife by the 3rd year into their marriage.
In the days before Shriver, 55, and Schwarzenegger, 63, announced their separation, he admitted to her that he’d fathered a love child with a former household staff member — about 10 years ago.
Schwarzenegger, who sired four children with Shriver, released this statement to the media yesterday:
“After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago. I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry.”
I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time. While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”
Well, at least he’s honest.
Maria Shriver just released a statement, according to the LA Times.
Saying Schwarzenegger’s admission was “painful and heartbreaking,” Shriver added: “As a mother my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
Hoodrats don’t necessarily have to be from the hood.
Child Protective Services in San Francisco launched an investigation last week after Kerry Campbell went on “Good Morning America” and told the world she gave her daughter Britney the anti-wrinkle injections herself … to help her compete in beauty pageants.
According to ABC News, Britney has been removed from the home by CPS and taken into their custody while an investigation is conducted.
Britney is reportedly “doing well.”
Donald Trump is waving the white flag to signal the end of his run for presidency in 2012.
Our own Stephanie Wash (ABC News reporter and longtime Sandrarose.com member) broke the scoop first on Twitter.com. Who would have thought that U.S. President Barack Obama’s calculated chess move (killing Osama) would be the death blow to the Donald’s presidential aspirations?
Oh, and Mike Huckabee (my personal favorite) isn’t running either. What a shame.
According to online reports, a member of the rap group Cali Swag District was shot dead in a drive by Sunday. The group is known for its lone hit “Teach Me How To Dougie”, which spawned a dance craze that swept the nation.
From The Buzz:
“The victim was sitting in the passenger seat of a car when another vehicle pulled up alongside and unloaded “at least two rounds” into the car, according to Lt. Michael Marshall. “It looks like they knew each other. It was not a traditional drive-by.”
But TMZ reports the crime “appears to be a random act of violence.”
Either way, authorities have no suspects yet and are asking for help.
MTV notes that “details have been kept brief,” but cites a police source saying the artist “sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the head while sitting in his vehicle on Le Brea Avenue. M-Bone was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.”
Cali Swag District had a huge hip-hop hit last year with “Teach Me How to Dougie.”
M-Bone, also known as Montae Talbert, was 22.
CNN’s Don Lemon has finally come out of the closet:
CNN’s Don Lemon, who last year stunned audiences when he said he was molested as a child, has revealed he is gay.
Lemon, 45, has a new memoir coming out called “Transparent.” He told Bill Carter of the New York Times of the inherent risks of coming out as a news personality.
“I’m scared,” he said to the Times. “I’m talking about something that people might shun me for, ostracize me for.”
Although some TV personalities out, most notably Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, he said being a black male makes it even tougher to be gay.
“It’s about the worst thing you can be in black culture. You’re taught you have to be a man; you have to be masculine. In the black community they think you can pray the gay away.”
Eudoxie Agnan, aka Fab, is a married woman — according to her updated Facebook account.
But her longtime boyfriend, rapper Ludacris, continues to deny that any nuptials took place at the end of last year. Additionally, his friends say if it was up to his mother, Roberta Shields, who manages his Ludacris Foundation, there would be no marriage taking place at any time in his near future.
What does this all mean? Why wouldn’t Luda want Fab as his bride? According to his close friends, Ludacris likes Fab so much because she minds him. “It’s rare to find a light skinned girl who minds, unless she’s foreign,” said the friend.
Luda helped Fab celebrate her 24th birthday at Compound nightclub on Saturday night in Atlanta.
