Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada, stars of VH1's unrealistic reality show "Basketball Wives", were spotted dining in Chicago yesterday. According to LaShonda Matlock of Chicago Now blog, Jennifer got a rude reception from a major league baseball player who probably had no clue who she was:

Celebrity hotspot Tavern on Rush was the place to be Wednesday evening as multiple celebs were spotted dining at the acclaimed restaurant. VH1 'Basketball Wives' stars Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada were spotted enjoying a lavish meal with drinks at Tavern and were later spotted strolling around the Triangle. My exclusive source states that Williams (who is newly single) tried her best to grab the attention of star 25-year-old NY Yankees player Ivan Nova who was sightseeing in town with his parents. Although the reality star tried her best to woo the player in a pair of barely there jean shorts. The only thing that MLB player gave out was his autograph and a cold shoulder. Ouch!

According to the gossip rags, troubled singer Rihanna is back with her old boyfriend in Barbados -- after she was dumped or dismissed by professional athletes in America.

According to The Sun (via The Daily Mail), Rihanna is back with Sealy Negus, the Lothario who is affectionately known as "The Love God" by all the loose women that he's run through in Barbados.

Negus has hardly left Rihanna's side, according to The Sun. He was her first true love.

"They've hooked up in the past when she's been back in Barbados but now things have progressed into a proper relationship again," the Sun quotes a source as saying.

A few of our loyal readers are complaining bitterly about the cost of tickets to Kanye West and Jay Z's 'The Throne' Tour. The tour kicks off at Philips Arena in Atlanta on October 29, and some fans say they can't afford the outrageous prices that Live Nation is asking for tickets.

Loyal reader Maxie King writes:

The tickets for the Washington DC show are $265/Each in this economy? Talk about tending the throne, these two tired rappers are gouging the pubic, making Jay-Z and Kanye richer, but it won't be me that's for sure for two assholes. $265 is half of my car note, but they don't care. Who do they think they are? Jay-Z's rap is old and so is he, and Kanye is a Beyonce groupie. F-that Sandra. But the show will probably sell-out nonetheless

Rather than rely on reader quotes of tickets, we did our own checking. We learned that the cheapest ticket to 'The Throne' Tour at Philips is only $83. That's not bad when you consider the magnitude of the talent onstage. I am speaking specifically of Kanye West, of course.

I didn't know Shannon Brown's baby mama, Sharde, was on Twitter.com. Not that it's important, but she did drag Shannon through the courts earlier this year to increase her child support. I could have sworn the judge forbid her from spreading vicious lies on the Internets? We'll never know because her Twitter page is locked, and we're not following her.

But it was brought to our attention recently that Sharde (or Sharday) assumes fake user names on different blogs and message boards all in an attempt to cast aspersions on singer Monica's good name.

It never ceases to amaze me how gullible Black people can be when it comes to these fake reality shows. Not one of you think it's strange that a MAN would throw a glass of water in a woman's face?

Not one of you???

I mean, seriously, where do they do that other than on reality shows? I have never in my life seen a man throw water in a woman's face. He might slap the bejesus out of her, or walk her like a dog, but no REAL MAN would throw water in a woman's face unless a camera is around and it's called for in a script!

For those of you who don't watch this nonsense, next week's trailer for VH1's "Basketball Wives" shows former NBA player husband, Eric Williams, casting water in the face of his estranged wife, cast member Jennifer Williams, they're supposedly getting a divorce, but we have yet to see any divorce papers after 2 seasons.

Queen Latifah, who is slowly adapting to life outside the closet, recently sat down with Sister2Sister magazine for an in-depth interview.

The Queen discussed what she looks for in a woman, and we're not surprised to learn that she prefers her women covered up.

“I just like ladies who have class. Period," she said, "and if it’s ‘T and A’ you’re sellin,’ that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know?"

She added:

"You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion. And I think guys find that to be the same way.”
