“Finally our baby arrives,Stephen nearly passed out,Phoenix screamed,I laughed so hard the baby popped out!!!” Mel wrote. “She is just sooo amazing!!”

Mel’s 12-year-old daughter Phoenix — from her previous marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar — was at the hospital for her little sister’s arrival, and it’s her first child with hubby of four years, Stephen Belafonte. Source

Ludacris stopped by the 11Alive studio to fill 11Alive viewers in on this year's LudaDay Weekend from Sept. 1-5th. Ludacris says this LudaDay weekend will be the biggest of the past 10 years.

The most anticipated event is probably the celebrity basketball game featuring NBA stars Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, in addition to other local celebs. Luda's team will take on Justin Beiber and his crew. Luda jokingly calls Bieber his "mentor" who he goes to for advice on women. Even so, Luda says he's definitely not going to let Bieber win the game.

Tickets are $10 and the proceeds will benefit the Ludacris Foundation. Visit for a full schedule of this weekend's events.

If you're planning on attending the LudaDay weekend events, you will have to contend with near gridlock traffic in downtown Atlanta. Not only is this Gay Pride weekend, but there will be other conventions and professional sporting events competing for spectators this weekend as well.

Apparently, a Hollywood airline booking agent has a great sense of humor. The agent booked Kim Kardashian's new husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, and Kim's ex-boyfriend, pseudo-singer Ray J, on the same commercial flight.

According to

Kris Humphries reportedly wound up sitting next to his wife's doggy-style sex tape partner Ray J in the first class cabin of a Delta airplane, and dealt with it in the saddest, most awkward way possible: He sat frozen in his seat "across the aisle" from Ray J "for a few minutes" (Did he stare blankly in stony-faced horror? Bow his head and sneak furtive side-eye glances at the man whose legacy he fears more than anyone else's?) then switched seats and sat in "awkward silence" until Ray J walked up and congratulated him on the marriage, at which point "Kris acted like he didn't recognize him." Apparently "Ray J said, 'Come on, you know who I am. I just wanted to say congratulations.' Then Kris, realizing he was cornered, said, 'Oh yeah, yeah, I'm sorry, I know who you are.'" And the size and shape of your penis, and what you look like orgasming all over my wife.

The word "awkward" gets tossed around a lot, as does the "most ______ ever" headline construction, but I suspect this was actually the most awkward moment of Kris Humphries life, if only because his life seems like it's been kind of boring so far. I mean, relatively boring, for a filthy rich 26-year-old baller, at least. Source

Yesterday, fans of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" took to online social networks and message boards to vent their frustration at the network for adding male transgender Chaz Bono to the cast.

The anger and venom displayed in hundreds of messages on the DWTS website got so out of hand that ABC removed the message board.

As a result of all the criticism, Bono's mother, 70s pop icon Cher (of Sonny & Cher), took to her Twitter page yesterday to rally her followers in support of her "son".

The 65-year-old disco queen tweeted:

42-year-old Bono, whose female reproductive organs are still intact, will be paired up with 23-year-old dancer Lacey Schwimmer, a regular on the show.

Kamikazi rapper Nicki Minaj glammed it up for Glamour magazine's October 2011 issue -- the same issue that Alicia Keys covers.

Minaj, whose personal problems have distracted from her storied rise to the top of the Hip Hop junk pile, pulled looks from Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Brian Atwood, Giuseppe Zanotti and Christian Louboutin for the article.

In the article, Nicki said her trash bag Barbie image is all her, and she's not changing for anyone:

“In my down time, I’m the most low-key person in the world.[...] We all have insecurities, but you have to know you’re beautiful. I’m comfortable in my skin and I don’t feel the need to change for anyone.”


Alicia Keys was seen taking her son Egypt Dean for a walk in his stroller in NY yesterday. Alicia, 30, was accompanied by a nanny as they took in the sights on Thursday evening in NYC's SoHo neighborhood.

Last night, La La Anthony attended A Night Of Style & Glamour wedding party to Welcome Newlyweds Kim and Kris Kardashian to New York. The party was paid for by someone named Jason Binn, because one extravagant, over-the-top wedding reception wasn't enough. The newlyweds plan to live in a $7,000-a-night penthouse apartment in the luxury Gansevoort Hotel on Park Avenue for 3 months, presumably while they film their reality show. La La wore a cute black and white, sheer tuxedo dress shirt with black flare leg slacks. Earlier in the day, she was spotted leaving an office building wearing an impossibly skin tight dress that easily accentuated all her curves.

Fresh out of prison, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, arrived at the Dismas Charities West halfway house in Atlanta yesterday morning in a customized tour bus hours after being released from a federal prison in Arkansas where he served 10 months for violating his probation.

The 30-year-old rapper will serve out the remaining 30 days of his 11 month sentence at the same halfway house he moved into following his previous prison stint in 2009.

The halfway house is within walking distance of the Fulton County Airport, aka Charlie Brown airport.

According to a former resident of the halfway house, the facility houses about 120 male inmates and 20 females.

After being processed into the facility, T.I. will likely be allowed to leave the halfway house during the days on a work pass. Every day until his release, he will clock in at a local recording studio where he will work on his upcoming album. His curfew will likely be 10:30 p.m. on weeknights and 11:30 p.m. on weekends. Same as last time, he will be required to fork over 25% of his income to the halfway house.

If you recall, landed an exclusive interview with an industry veteran who happened to be staying at the halfway house in December 2009 when T.I. checked in the last time.

With the help of a well-connected industry Diva, we were able to speak by phone to rapper Bow Wow's homie, Bart, who was finishing up his federal time at the halfway house.

Just like on his Twitter page, "Bart" was extremely candid and forthcoming about what T.I. should expect during his stay in 2009. In fact, Bart's candor got him into a little hot water with the staff at the Dismas Charities West facility.

You can't tell by looking at her, but singer/songwriter Keri Hilson is as ghetto as they come. The gorgeous "Pretty Girl" singer may look demure and timid on the outside, but get her mad and she will snatch a wig back quick!

According to the NY Post's Page Six gossip column, Keri, who's on tour with Lil Wayne, learned the hard way that good help is hard to find.

The 28-year-old beauty wasn't having it when a hapless assistant forgot to remove a department store tag from her black harem pants before her performance at Haze inside the Aria Resort and Casino in Vegas on Saturday.

A source tells Page Six that the "Knock You Down" singer came charging off the stage and made a beeline for the unlucky assistant. “Hilson lost it,” the source said. "She was screaming at her assistant for 'not being able to do anything right.' [She] railed that the assistant also forgot to 'pack her eye drops and throat spray.' "

The unidentified assistant must have known that that was her last day on the tour because she started windmilling at Hilson like they were both in the projects, saying, “Oh, hell no, heiffer!”.

Hilson's burly security and her manager stepped between the two scrapping women to separate them before wigs got thrown. At some point, Hilson, who got the best of the exchange, stormed off cursing.

Hilson’s rep told Page Six, “Keri did ask her assistant to bring her eyedrops/throat spray as she was feeling under the weather, but there was no altercation. Keri has had the same road staff, from assistant to security, for a few years now.”

29-year-old rapper Nicki Minaj joined rapper Flo Rida and singer David Guetta at yesterday's taping of "America's Got Talent" in Los Angeles. Guess who Nicki was with? Yup, you guessed it: her boyfriend/hypeman Safaree Samuels, the same man who assaulted her with a designer suitcase in Dallas in July. Rumor had it that the couple had split up and that Nicki fired Samuels. But considering the source of the rumor, we should have known better.

According to my spy, Nicki was extremely camera shy, except when David and Flo asked her to pose with them, so she couldn't say no. But during the show, her orders were strict: absolutely NO photography on the set or backstage. Even host Nick Cannon couldn't get any pics of her in her dressing room. After the show, the contestants and judges took pics but not Nicki. At this point, no one really cares that Nicki and SB are still together. Like typical victims of domestic abuse, Nicki is probably convinced that she's nothing without him. In 10 years she'll film a VH1 "Behind the Music" special about how SB beat her azz on the regular and stole all of her money before leaving her for one of her bodyguards. Sad.
