Here's another post about down low men in the black community pretending to be straight while getting their backs twisted out in the privacy of their warm closets.

Until now the closeted NBA fraternity of gay players had managed to keep their existence a well-guarded secret. But Memphis Grizzlies rookie Josh Selby probably didn't receive the handbook on being discreet with those gold digging NBA groupies. Selby prefers his NBA groupies to be Hispanic boys who advertise their services on social networking websites such as Twitter.com.

According to Benny614tv.com, Josh Selby sent pics of himself to one @iAmJustinCruz on Twitter.com who promised to turn him out after exchanging direct messages (DMs on Twitter). "I'm just curious, not gay, bruh," tweeted Selby to Justin, after making hotel arrangements. Justin's page is now private, probably to protect his other "clients" on Twitter.

The blog published email messages below:

Josh wrote: wassup bruh….heres some pictures of me. don’t show anybody! because im in sports and dont want people to know and plus im just curious not gay bruh.

Justin replied: Aight well are you still gonna get the hotel room? and once I’m done with you your gonna get turned out LOL and when you get time follow me @IamJustinCruz

Josh wrote: Idk about all of that but will see your pretty face and yeah I’m getting the telly [hotel room] 443-**** 443-**** hit me up aight!

Updated: the family of the 17-year-old boy in @iamJustinCruz's original profile pic reached out to us to let us know that his profile pic was stolen off his Facebook page. His name is not Justin Cruz. The person updating the @iamjustincruz Twitter account has since replaced the teen's pic with a blurry image of an older looking Hispanic male. That pic might be stolen as well. All you down low NBA players need to be aware that the pretty face gays you seek on Twitter might not be who you think they are!

A pregnant Beyonce Knowles hid her prosthetic baby bump under layers of a Vera Wang designed chiffon and silk frock as she attended the Vera Wang and Rodarte shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2012 at Lincoln Center today in New York City. Since Beyonce has no friends who will tell her the truth, let us be the first to say how crazy she looks in that dress. Not a good look for her at all. Her sister Solange, on the other hand, looks very classy in her pants outfit. Nice!

No one can say Kim Kardashan didn't rock the hail out of this blue Vera Wang gown.

Good Morning Sandra!

I've been reading your blog now for about two years and must say I enjoy it very much. A particular section that I enjoy is the "Morning Wood/Morning Glory" especially because it allows regular people to showcase their talents and let you learn a little about them. Please feature a good friend of mine, June Brone. He is the ultimate jack of all trades and has come a long way. He is an extremely talented artist and has a lot of his work for sale in galleries in Providence, RI, and also has done some work in modeling.

He was born in New York but calls Rhode Island his home and he also hand makes and designs a jewelry line named Zenuj (zeh-new). He works so hard at it and has just recently moved to Miami to expand business and things are looking up.
June is a great guy. He doesn't allow his looks to boost his ego and is honestly one of the nicest people I've ever had the honor to know. If you're more interested in him and Zenuj Jewelry, look him up on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/junebrone or on Twitter @kidbrone.

It's been a while since homoerotic singer Trey Songz queened out on females for snatching his wig on Twitter.com.

Songz is a really sad case. He spends most of his waking hours on Twitter.com reading thousands of tweets from his adoring 2.4 million clueless female followers who make him feel like he's a real man.

But Trey seems to be extra sensitive to the few astute female Twitter followers who occasionally pluck card.

He will wade through the thousands of tweets from ladies telling him what they plan to do with his various body parts. And he will focus on the ONE or TWO tweets from women calling him out for what he really is. What does that tell you?

Read the tweets from last night's Twitter meltdown after the break! (Thanks for the heads up, Zuley!)

They don't call them New York's finest for nothing. Two NYPD officers couldn't keep their hands off the gorgeous Jamaican women dancing in the The West Indian Day Parade last week. The horny officers were caught by Worldstar Hip Hop cameras bumping and grinding on the sexy women in the parade.

The West Indian Day Parade, otherwise known as the Labor Day Parade, is an annual event held on American Labor Day on the first Monday of September.

The cops just got carried away and were enjoying themselves a bit. But, according to the Daily Mail, bosses at the NYPD don’t think it’s a laughing matter and have launched an investigation into the video.

A source told the news site: "It’s not corruption, but it looks bad. It’s young cops doing something stupid."

How does that saying go? Once you go black, you always go back?

R&B crooner Maxwell, who once dated a bevy of Caucasian beauties, has returned to the arms of a black woman for comfort and good loving. The 38-year-old "Pretty Wings" singer was seen half carrying, half dragging his beautiful drunken mystery date as they left club Avenue after drinking and partying in New York City last night. The couple created a frenzy among the paparazzi camped outside the club.

During last night's slow paced Monday night football contest between the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots, ESPN's cameras caught actor Will Smith and Latin singer Marc Anthony partying in the owner's box. The men were celebrating Anthony's 42nd birthday, which actually falls on Friday (Sept. 16). Also seen hanging out in the owner's box were Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, rapper Pitbull and singer Fergie.

The bromance between Marc and Will seemed to squash the rumors that Will caught Marc Anthony cheating with his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, in their home.

Anthony is one of the celebrity co-owners of the Dolphins franchise, along with singer Fergie of the singing group Black Eyed Peas.

Before the game, Marc tweeted "I'm ready for some football, GO DOLPHINS!" Unfortunately, the Dolphins weren't ready for Brady's arm or the stifling Patriots defense. The fish lost to the Pats 38-24.

By the way, ladies, what type of watch is Marc wearing in the above photo? (Click the image for a closer look) If you expect to snag a baller you should be able to impress him by naming his pricey timepieces. Highlight the area below for the answer if you haven't done your homework.

'True Blood' fans were all atwitter on the social networking website Twitter.com during Sunday night's epic finale.

Entertainment Weekly's Inside TV spoke exclusively with sexy 'True Blood' star Rutina Wesley about the shocking finale and whether or not Tara survives the gunshot that took off half of her head:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What did you think when you read the season finale script?
RUTINA WESLEY: Well I mean, I knew ahead of time that it was coming. It’s always a scary place as an actor to go there.

In your mind, is Tara dead?
Well I mean half my head is missing. I’m just gonna keep saying that. You know, it’s True Blood. I feel like anything is possible. If anything, it is the golden hour though. If she is able to be saved, it’s like she’s got 20 seconds. It’s not a lot of time. I’m curious to see what they’re going to do with all of it. I hope I’m back. But again half my head is missing [laughs].

It was crazy! Are people approaching you?
Well my phone has been blowing up. I talked to Nelsan and his phone was blowing up. He was like, “People are about to start a riot over you.” I think that’s so sweet to know that people out there are really upset and some people are like, “I’m not watching the show anymore!” I’m like, C’mon guys. But it’s not over. It ain’t over til the fat lady sings. I’m just gonna take it one day at a time. As I said, I haven’t seen any scripts from next season, but I know that I’m involved — I just don’t know in what way.

Are you signed on for a season 5?
Yeah. It’s out there that Alan has already said that he has big plans for Tara. But things change. I don’t know exactly what they have in store for me and how long that will be. It’s tricky. And if I did know, I’m just not going to say. [Laughs] But again — half the head is missing. The cool part is people are talking. And that’s the question is: Is she dead or is she not? Because people can survive head wounds. But we have people on the show that can make things happen — you know what I mean? I don’t know what’s going to happen the first episode of next season. I’m just as excited and curious you are. I hope it’s good. I hope I stick around for a while. That would be nice. [Laughs]

Cocktail lounge singer Beyoncé, 30, and her geriatric rapper husband Jay Z, 42, watched 1# ranked Novak Djokovic defeat defending champion Rafael Nadal 6-2, 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-1 to win the U.S. Open men's finals at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens Monday night (Sept. 12).

Jay Z and his wife are expecting something to be born in the early part of next year. We don't even know if Beyoncé is really pregnant. We're hearing all kinds of crazy rumors from our industry friends who tell us that Bey is not even pregnant -- but the surrogate mother is. We're told that the surrogate mother has been paid a truck load of cash to carry their seed quietly on some remote island where, coincidentally, Beyoncé and Jigga will be vacationing next year.

We'll know if the rumors are true when Beyoncé "gives birth" on a tropical island in the Caribbean next February or March.

Reportedly, Beyoncé and Jigga went the route of other wealthy couples who have problems conceiving: they allegedly paid a professional surrogate to carry their seed while Bey carries her prosthetic baby bump. Expect to see Bey and Jay out & about a lot in the coming months. All of this is rumor and speculation, so please don't quote us on any of it.

This is not the first time that Lisa Bonet's sexy actor husband Jason Momoa has made our Morning Wood section. The 6 ft former model turned heads while vacationing in his native Hawaii with his 43-year-old wife over the weekend. Jason spent the day paddle boarding in the waves off Hawaii's beautiful beaches. Once out of the water, he carried the large paddle board over his shoulder like it weighed a feather. Jason and Lisa have two children together, a daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, 4, and a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, who turns 3 in December. Lisa has a grown daughter, Zoe Kravitz, by singer Lenny Kravitz.

According to TMZ.com, comedian Eddie Griffin waltzed down the aisle with his Tameka "Tiny" Harris look-a-like bride Nia Rivers.

It seems Griffin couldn't wait for the formalities -- or the headache of shelling out cash for an extravagant wedding. So he and his boo rolled into the Vegas Weddings chapel on Thursday afternoon -- where they took the plunge in front of 4 guests.

A source tells TMZ the Griffins splurged on the Cherish Package -- which includes limo transportation, a bouquet for the bride, a boutonniere for the groom and 9 photos.

They certainly look happy in their wedding pics. That's what love is all about: knowing when it's time, and not worrying about impressing your friends.

Just a few moments ago, Carmelo's wife La La Anthony tweeted this pic of herself and bestie Savannah Brinson (LeBron's fiancee) attending a fashion event in NYC. I'm quite surprised at the direction that Savannah's personal style has gone in. She's beautiful, but she's almost unrecognizable with all that makeup on. Clearly Savannah is hanging around Kim Kardashian too long. I wonder what leBron thinks...

One of the nation's top girls high school basketball prospects was gunned down inside her apartment building in what her friends and family say was a case of mistaken identity.

According to published reports, 18-year-old Tayshana Murphy, nicknamed Chicken, was shot and killed around 4:10 a.m. Sunday morning in the Grant Harlem housing projects.

According to the NY Daily News, Murphy, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, left a party at 4 a.m. with a group of friends from her housing project. She was confronted by a gunman and chased through an alley.

According to some who were at the party, Murphy was mistaken by her assailant for a boy who was wearing the same sweatshirt. She pleaded her innocence to the gunman.

"She was pleading for her life," Teka Taylor, one of Murphy's close friends, told the Daily News. "She was saying, 'No, please, I don't have nothing to do with it.'"

Hours after Tayshana was pronounced dead, her mother Stephanie Holston spoke to the NY Daily News about her daughter's dreams to move her out of the ghetto.

Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles and their mom, Tina Knowles, were seen in the Tribeca section of New York City yesterday afternoon. Solo wore an oversized afro wig on her head which she surely borrowed from her sister's extensive collection of wigs, lacefronts, extensions and hair pieces.

R&B singer Rihanna was seen leaving a photo shoot looking tired and bored last night in New York City. Life has not been the same for RiRi after she fell out of favor with her fans by rudely dissing them. She's still young. She'll learn the virtues of loyalty.

Disappointment showed on singer singer Ciara's face as she watched her bestie Serena Williams lose in spectacular fashion to Australian tennis player Samantha Stosur at Arthur Ashe stadium in the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center yesterday, in Flushing, Queens.

Even before insecure singer Alicia Keys married rap producer Swizz Beatz -- and had a baby by him -- she knew he couldn't keep it in his pants. Maybe that's what attracted her to him? The fact that other women wanted her man must have been a strong aphrodisiac? Insecurity, not money issues, is the main reason 80% of black marriages end in divorce.

According to gossip blog Bossip.com, Alicia's man Swizz Beatz has a secret lover named Chris, a LSLH beauty whom he engages in long, hot chat sessions that his wife probably doesn't know about.

As I've said many times in the past, men are not designed to ignore the advances of a beautiful woman -- unless he's gay. It's in a man's nature to cheat. But it is wrong to marry a woman and make a vow to always be faithful when he knows he can't.

Yes, married men can have female friends. But their wives usually know about them -- if the married men are honest.

Anyway, Bossip posted a series of private chat messages between "Chris" and Swizz. She plays her cards very well. She boosts Swizz's arrogant ego and charms him into sending her plane tickets and such.

For every stupid baller on a social networking site there are gold diggers waiting to take advantage of him. (Apparently Swizz Beatz is stupid).

The ball is now in Alicia's court. Let's see what she does with this information or if she blames the chick for chasing her man.

Who knew Hustle & Flow actor Terrence Howard was so gangsta? Well, one man knows after Howard left a message on his voicemail threatening to cut his throat if he didn't stop calling his trophy wife.

According to Radaronline.com, Howard left the message on an unidentified man's voicemail on August 31st.

After identifying himself, Howard said "N**ga, you been calling my wife... If you call my wife again I'm going to come to your house and I'm gonna cut your f***ing throat!"

To prove he meant business, Howard added:
"Understand that. I'm gonna tell you this one time. You call my wife again, I'm gonna kill you."

[audio:terrence-howard.mp3]

Later, Howard called and left a second message on the man's phone apologizing for the previous one (click to hear that mesage). He also sent a text message: "My wife told me that she was receiving obscene text from you and that she was being harassed. Therefore I responded with the protective nature that a husband has for his wife," Terrence wrote.

Apparently there was a misunderstanding. Still, violence is never the answer when you have a good divorce lawyer.

In February, after being married a year, Michelle Ghent filed for divorce from Howard citing irreconcilable differences.

Hopefully Howard has an ironclad prenup because this breezy is in it for the money.

When tennis superstar Serena Williams approached the umpire's chair in an aggressive manner during yesterday's Finals match at the U.S. Open, she was exhibiting symptoms of 'roid rage.

During the Women's Finals match against Australian player Samantha Stosur, Williams yelled out during a point which distracted Stosur causing her to mishit the ball.

The chair umpire awarded Stosur the point, sending Williams into a blinding rage.

"Are you the one that screwed me over the last time?" Williams said. "You're a nobody! You're ugly on the inside. That is totally ugly!" she shouted at the umpire.

When play resumed, Stosur went on to defeat Williams in straight sets 6-2, 6-4 to win the U.S. Open.

It's possible that Williams is addled by the side effects of performance enhancing substances such as anabolic steroids. It's easy to see from her frequent melt downs on the court that she is out of control.

Persistent use of anabolic steroids causes aggression, hostility, rage and incidences of violence in an otherwise healthy male. Imagine the havoc it wreaks in a narcissistic female?

Saloon singer Beyonce, 30, and her husband, aging rap mogul Jay Z, 42, alerted the paparazzi to the fact that they would be strolling hand-in-hand outside the Locanda Verde restaurant in New York's Tribeca section yesterday. Beyonce wore a top made of loose fitting material to disguise her now you see it, now you don't baby bump, which doesn't look nearly as large as it did when the two vacationed in Croatia last week.

According to record label exec, JD Anderson, who runs the Life Files blog, rapper Lil Wayne went off on a female fan while kicking some rhymes during a recent show. Weezy was in a zone acting like he was at a poetry slam session or something.

When a female fan wouldn't stop screaming, Weezy said, "Shut the f*ck up! Stop it for real. If you're really a fan you would shut the f*ck up and listen to me."

Well, she paid her money and she was at a rap concert, so why can't she scream?

Lil Wayne needs to get over himself. Just because BET nominated him 18 times for that bullsh*t album he put out doesn't mean his CD is the Holy Grail of Hip Hop -- or that fans have to hush up whenever he speaks. Who does he think he is?

See, this is what happens when you give ignorant, uneducated narcissists too much attention.

By the way, last week another industry exec (not JD) reached out to Sandrarose.com with proof that a certain record label CEO bought up hundreds of thousands of Weezy's albums in order to artificially pad the sales figures of his latest release, Carter IV.

When this particular record label releases what they know to the media it will send shock waves throughout the industry. Stay tuned...

Contagion, Steven Soderbergh's movie about a deadly virus that causes a worldwide pandemic is the #1 movie in America.

The Warner Bros. thriller took in $23.1 million over the weekend, enough to wipe out The Help, which ended its 3 week run at #1.

Contagion, starring Oscar winners and nominees Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow and Laurence Fishburne, has exceeded studio estimates at the box office.

Actress Sanaa Lathan, 40, who plays Fishburne's fiancée in the movie, was in Atlanta on Friday to promote the movie. The buxom beauty participated in roundtable interviews with local media.

Your auntie was the only blogger invited to interview Lathan at the Four Seasons hotel. Unfotunately, we couldn't make it so we asked celebrity blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com to sit in on the interview since she's better at that sort of thing.

Below are excerpts from Tami's interview with Sanaa, which you can read in full by clicking here.

On her favorite things in her closet
"Ooh, I have these one pair of red suede Louboutins that zip up the back. I always pair them with a black dress, they make me feel hott! I wear them a lot lol."

On her favorite designers and personal style
"Day-to-Day I love Bohemian Chic. I’m a flower child lol. I love Louboutins, Prada, YSL shoes. I wore Rachel Roy to the premiere of Contagion."

A loyal reader who asked to remain anonymous writes:

Please do not include my name in this email. I must admit at first I thought you we're a little cruel for bothering Beyonce. However after carefully reviewing pictures of her birthday weekend in Italy. I have to say that I agree with you. I don't think she is pregnant. The photos that were taken from afar show a very nice size belly, however when the media was able to take up close pictures of Beyonce she has a huge purse covering up her stomach. I am saying this as a Beyonce fan. I believe that maybe she and Jay are unable to have children and are planning to adopt and don't want the media to know. I don't understand why someone of her status would flaunt her belly and pregnancy but once cameras are up close and personal she hides her tummy. Please ask your bloggers how can they explain these photos??

SR responds: It definitely looks like she was hiding something. And we already know the "paparazzi" photos were staged by Bey's camp.

In response to yesterday's post on Pseudocyesis (False Pregnancy), reader Genti Price writes:

I use to love reading your blog, I felt they were informative about some celebs. But I read and detect a lot of attitude when you discuss some celebs on your site, EVEN MORE NOW than before. You sound like a girl from high school who is on the newspaper committee, who, if [you] can't get [your] way with the person you think you should be able to, you will smear that person's name in the high school paper who didn't warrant any attention towards you.

There is no reason for you to post a picture of this woman with that title. Why not just find an actual medical article with a REAL person that is/was suffering from such condition? My God Sandra, we all know that this woman IS TRULY pregnant.

You talk about people needing to grow up.. YOU WEAR THAT VERY WELL.

May peace be upon you now and in the after life!

SR responds: Was that a threat?

Unlike most narcissists, BBQ Wives star Evelyn Lozada cares what you think about her.

She's extremely upset that bloggers have stopped believing her carefully constructed web of lies.

She's fighting mad that the truth has been revealed about her fake relationship with NFL's Chad Ochocinco.

She's angry with you bloggers, and she's not going to take it any more!

So Evelyn took to her Twitter page yesterday to clear up rumors about her dating Terrell Owens (like anybody cares) -- and to do a little kissing up to the blogs who happily print her BS lies.

Cartoonish rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, looked like she was attending a funeral instead of a high fashion affair at the Yves Saint Laurent store during NYC's Fashion Night Out. For Minaj this Geisha girl look is probably as conservative as it gets. Minaj, who is bisexual, attended the event with her troubled, on again/off again boyfriend/hype man, Safaree Samuels, 32, who you recall bashed her in the mouth with a designer suitcase in a widely publicized assault back in June.

Besties Lala Vasquez-Anthony, left, Kim Kardashian, center, and Ciara watched the action unfold during the Serena Williams vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova tennis match at the 2011 US Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY yesterday. Serena beat Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets, 7-5, 6-1, to advance to the semifinals.

Ciara was so excited that she narrowly avoided an embarrasing wardrobe malfunction that would have been plastered all over the blogs today.

La La giggled as her friend Ciara readjusted her muffins during the 2nd set.

After Serena's victory on the court, Ciara tweeted:
"Way2 WIN 2day @serenawilliams!!! #teamserena is turnt up baby! Chea!!"
