Comedian Katt Williams was spotted in Beverly Hills yesterday wearing the latest in hip hop jewelry around his neck and wrists. Blame Kanye West (and the soaring price of gold) for the hip hop community’s interest in wearing Egyptian themed gold chains and beaded bracelets.

NBA star Carmelo Anthony got up close and personal with this baby panda during his trip to China. Carmelo tweeted the cute pic on his Twitter page this morning.

Terrence J has announced he’s leaving BET’s 106 & Park — but only for a month. The popular music countdown show host is taking a hiatus from 106 & Park to work on an upcoming film.

Terrence J, real name Terrence Jenkins, saw his stock rise sharply with the ladies following his acting gig on BET’s “The Game” this past Winter. Terrence’s smooth ladies man role on “The Game” earned him more offers of work, including a starring role in the upcoming film, Think Like A Man.

The movie, which is based on the best selling book written by Steve Harvey, host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, is about a group of women who uses Steve’s book to figure their men out.

Think Like a Man‘s all-star cast includes Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good, Kevin Hart, LaLa Vazquez-Anthony, Keri Hilson, Chris Brown, and Morris Chestnut.

Terrence J explained his role to writer Insanul Ahmed for Complex magazine:

“I play Michael. Michael is a mama’s boy. All of those guys I mentioned, we’re all best friends. We end up discovering that they know about the book and then we use the book against them. So it’s a really hilarious romantic comedy. The way it uses the book with Steve Harvey is really interesting and creative. It’s going to be a great date movie.”

Kelly Rowland’s latest album, Here I Am, is set to sell only 70-75K copies in the United States, according to industry estimates based on one-day sales figures. But Kelly already knew her album wouldn’t sell many copies in America, and she isn’t worried. Kelly knows she’s a Superstar over in England where her most loyal supporters are. Her album will exceed sales expectations in England which is why she promoted her project almost entirely across the pond instead of in America where fans are mostly bandwagon jumpers. Kelly knows what side her bread is buttered on, so she doesn’t care whether her album sells well over here or not.

Here I Am is in stores now!

A not-so-loyal reader sent us images of video vixen Kameron Dash under the subject line “Stacey Dash’s cousin” — knowing that we would quickly open the email to see what any cousin of the “Single Ladies” star looked like. The email author didn’t count on us to do our research.

It turns out Kameron is not a cousin of Stacey Dash. They’re equally gorgeous (though Stacey has at least 25 years on Kameron) they’re not even in the same blood line. But Kameron’s natural curves do qualify her to be today’s Morning Glory.

The aggressive former McDonald’s manager who punched out a customer on July 12, was arrested Monday after 2 weeks on the lam.

When the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office obtained a warrant to arrest Tiffany Denise Allen for assault, they couldn’t lay hands on her right away. That is because Allen had hastily packed up and fled the area after hearing there was a warrant out for her arrest.

The fugitive was arrested Monday by Sheriffs in New Hanover County, North Carolina.

“She was taken to the New Hanover Sheriff’s Department and is currently in their custody,” Nancy Bodiford, Cobb County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, said in an email to the Atlanta Journal Wednesday.

Bishop Eddie Long fought the good fight when allegations of sexual misconduct were lodged against him by four young male members of his church last year. Long vigorously denied any and all accusations of sexual misconduct, and he swore that he would clear his good name — that was before his fifth accuser came forward and changed everything.

Centino Kemp is his name, and with his cross-dressing, Rihanna wig wearing, flamboyant, fiercely gay persona — Kemp presented a major problem for the Long defense team.

According to FOX 5 Senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell, who broke the story of the 5th accuser, Kemp has Eddie Long’s name tattooed on his wrist. And that’s just the beginning.

The decision was made by Eddie Long’s attorneys to settle quickly, and push the entire sordid affair under the proverbial rug, with signed confidentiality agreements to ensure that whatever went on in Eddie Long’s bedroom would stay in Eddie Long’s bedroom.

Poor Young Jeezy: his victorious comeback TM 103 promo concert in New York City drew such Hip Hop heavyweights as Jay Z and Kanye West to the stage on Monday. But his big comeback was marred by an incident that occurred 2 days before the concert. According to celebrity blogger Michelle of, the Thug Motivation rapper was pulled over and almost arrested in upscale Buckhead (an Atlanta suburb) on Saturday, July 24.

Michelle posted these Exclusive pictures of Jeezy being harassed by the Atlanta PD. Jeezy seems to be taking it well as he calmly explains his situation to the cops. We don’t know the details of Jeezy’s traffic infraction, or if he was even ticketed. It’s almost a routine occurrence to be pulled over if you’re driving while Black in Buckhead. Especially if you’re behind the wheel of a brand new $150,000 Ferrari California.

According to Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal’s Radio & TV Talk Blog, the Mo’Nique Show has been canceled. That’s too bad. We never got the chance to watch it…

Earlier today, I heard that “The Mo’Nique Show” had been axed. I had sent an email out to various BET publicists to ask what was up. No word back.

At about 1:30 p.m., I called Rodney Perry, who was Mo’Nique’s sidekick on the show. He said he was running into a meeting and didn’t answer my question. While I was at lunch over at the mall court, at 1:40 p.m. EST, he texted me: “I was told indefinite hiatus.”

That’s a euphemism for canceled.

In an interview I did at 2:40 p.m., the stand-up comic said he enjoyed the experience working with Mo’Nique. “I’m selling out shows now,” he said. “That’s a win.” He heard the news from Mo’Nique’s husband but hasn’t spoken to the Oscar-winning actress yet. (He wouldn’t say when he knew about this, implying he has known for awhile.)

The trailer for the sci-fi action flick Battleship has hit the Internets, featuring singer Rihanna in her first acting role. First of all, you only see a fleeting glimpse of Rihanna wearing her battle fatigues after the 1:10 mark (if you blink, you miss her); and secondly, Battleship is clearly targeted to the hormone-driven, online gaming crowd under the age of 16.

There’s nothing to see here.
