Uber stars Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith gave Architectural Digest an exclusive look inside their 25,000 square foot Adobe-styled home. The Smith’s luxury crib was designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, with interiors by Judith Lance. The custom furniture added an additional $250,000 to the cost of the unique private residence.

The Internet is buzzing about the major shakeup of the much-hyped Jay Z/Kanye West 'The Throne' Tour. Amid rumors of infighting between the 2 prima donna stars comes word that some 20 dates have been slashed from the original tour schedule -- this, according to Ace Showbiz.com.
One sign that the original 24-city tour might have been a bit too ambitious came this morning when it was announced that 20 dates were removed from the tour schedule. Yesterday, the NY Post claimed the 2 delicate personalities weren't getting along too tight.
We reached out to our Def Jam contact who assured us that the rumors were false. But we remember what happened when Jay Z toured with drama queen R.Kelly, so it isn't too far fetched to believe the rumors.
'The Throne' tour, which was scheduled to start in Detroit on September 22, will now kick off right here in Atlanta on October 29. We're elated because we have been promised tickets to that show!

Borderline Personality Disorder is a term that describes a cluster of mood disorders including narcissism, passive aggression and antisocial personalities.
So we shouldn't be surprised to learn that Brandon Marshall held a news conference to announce his diagnosis. Marshall told the gathered reporters that he wants to be "the face" of BPD. Narcissists love attention any way they can get it.
BDPs are known for their mood swings, rages and aggression which sometimes leads to violence.
In fact, it was violence toward Marshall's wife that forced him into therapy. But Marshall was in therapy once before and it didn't help. These personality types are master manipulators who are notoriously difficult to treat.
Borderline personalities, especially malignant narcissists, are hard to spot at first because they can be so charming and disarmingly handsome (or stunningly beautiful in the case of female narcissists). They literally spend hours in front of a mirror perfecting their image to woo their potential partners.
They are expert hunters who use their physical beauty to entrap their unsuspecting partners. Once they target someone as their prey they are hard to resist, and it isn't long before their object of affection thinks they're in love -- but that's when they switch up and their dark side emerges.
The first sign of trouble is an episode of narcissistic rage that seems to come from out of nowhere.
Thanks to loyal reader Kimberly W. for the pics!
There is justice for little Caylee after all.
It looks like child killer Casey Anthony and her attorneys will have to wait one more year before she can sell her lies to the highest bidder.
A no-nonsense Florida judge has ordered Anthony back to Florida to begin serving a one year "supervised" probation within 3 days. This means Anthony can't leave the state of Florida without the judge's permission, and other restrictions on her movements.
Anthony's release was blamed on a clerical error, according to London's Daily Mail.
The chick performing at a Las Vegas gay club last night was not the real Kim Kardashian, but she was an impressive facsimile thereof! We can see why Kim K is so nervous about Melissa Molinaro using her striking likeness to make a name for herself. Studies have shown that White males prefer the less is more school of thought when it comes to a woman's assets. This would explain why there are so many Facebook pages for Britain's Pippa Middleton's derriere -- and none for Kim's artificially pumped up butt.
Melissa Molinaro -- that chick in the Old Navy commercial that looks just like Kim Kardashian -- brought her bootyful talents to the stage lit up table at Las Vegas gay club Piranha this weekend.
Last month, Kardashian filed a lawsuit against Old Navy because she claims they hired Melissa to dupe the public into thinking Kim is affiliated with the clothing giant.
Pastor Mason and Twyla recently held their Follow Well/Lead Well sermon as part of their Born To Succeed series. Aren't you proud of the course Mason has taken from his days of running through groupies
and trannie hookers? Don't let anyone tell you people can't change. Pastor Betha is walking proof that people can change. But people have to want to change because the flesh is weak.
Once all excuses are exhausted it's clear that "people" aren't the problem. No man is where he is because of somebody else. Mason Betha teaches how to come to yourself and see royal living.
Kanye West and Jay Z's Exclusive Watch The Throne party at the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC last night was memorable for 4 reasons: Kanye, Kelly Rowland, Jada Pinkett-Smith AND designer Tory Burch were all in the house at the same time! The star studded listening session was the most talked about event for the past two weeks in New York. Stars and VIPs flew in from all over the globe to attend. Our Def Jam source tells us to ignore any and all rumors that Jay Z and Kanye aren't getting along. But we already knew the rumors were lies considering the source. Watch The Throne is in stores August 8!

When singer Usher Raymond wants to know how his money is working for him, he goes to Wall Street to see for himself. I'm kidding. Usher rang the opening bell during MTV's 30th Birthday celebration at the New York Stock Exchange this morning in New York City.
