Score another coup for Barack Obama.

Last night, while the president delivered his confrontational State of the Union address, a special forces SEAL unit parachuted into Somalia to rescue an American woman.

During the fierce gun battle, nine Somali pirates were killed and five captured by the SEALs. The U.S. special forces team was the same SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May 2011.

The elite U.S. special forces team which killed Osama Bin Laden parachuted into Somalia last night and rescued an American woman and a Danish man in a fierce gun battle with the pirates holding them hostage.

Aid workers Jessica Buchanan, 32, of Rosslyn, Virginia, and Poul Hagen Thisted, 60, of Denmark, who were kidnapped last October, are unharmed and at a safe location. Source

I did not write this Blind Item.

From Gawker.com (via CDaN)

This kinky hip-hop star had quite the party in Sundance. Only this other celeb and a few women were invited and both men got to share. "So, apparently this pretty much A list rapper/R&B singer has a little kink in him. Actually I should say a big kink in him. Now I get why he and this A list female pop star with the bad judgment when it comes to exes hit it off for a few months. They can each out kink the other. Anyway, our male A list rapper picked up a couple of women the other night and shared them with this celebrity who was having trouble on his own. The only condition? Our rapper wanted to not only watch the celebrity with the one woman but then also wanted to swap after an hour. Oh, and this will be revealed."

This freaky hip-hop star had quite a party at the Sundance Film Festival last week in Park City, Utah. He invited one other male celeb and a few women, which both men shared. So, apparently this A list rapper/R&B singer has a little freak in him. Now we understand why he and a A-list female pop star, who has bad judgment when it comes to ex-boyfriends, hit it off for a few months. Anyway, the male rapper shared a couple of women with this celebrity who was having trouble scoring on his own. The only condition? The rapper not only wanted to watch the celebrity have sex with one of the women, but he also wanted to swap after an hour. Oh, and this will be revealed.

Which professional basketball player is allowing his personal problems at home to affect his game on the court?

According to sources close to the player's camp, the love that the player and his wife once had "has grown cold." Sources say the wife knows her husband has been cheating on her for years -- most recently with a woman identified only as a "female executive". The wife is described as "stressed and fearful" that a certain blogger will blast the identify of the woman all over the Internet and ruin her carefully cultivated public image of a happy home life with their son. (The other woman's identity is being withheld because she fears she will lose her job)

"It's affecting his game. She's putting pressure on him to act the part of a loving husband -- at least publicly -- but he resists because he doesn't want to piss off his other woman," said the source, who begged for anonymity. "He loves his son very much," said the source. "Divorce is not an option for him."

R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, 32, has been appointed Vice President of A&R at Motown Records, according to published reports. Ne-Yo, born Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., left Def Jam Records after 6 years and 4 albums.

Ne-Yo will work closely with former LaFace Records intern Ethiopia Habtemariam, who was appointed senior VP of Motown last September. She also holds the title of executive VP/head of urban music for Universal Music Publishing Group.

Ne-Yo said: "I'm honored that I¹ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson -- these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it."

Ne-Yo's album Year of the Gentleman and Young Jeezy's album, The Recession, were both cited by insiders as part of the reason for the fall out between then Def Jam label head LA Reid and his Executive VP Shakir Stewart.

Both albums, which were A&R'd by Stewart, dropped in September 2008 and failed to go gold by the time Stewart shot himself to death in the bathroom of his Marietta, Ga. home on Nov. 1, 2008.

Apparently Halle Berry's nanny doesn't have good karma because a judge today tossed out her restraining order petition against Gabriel Aubry.

As you know, Alliance Kamdem, 29, took out a police report last week accusing Aubry, 35, of "ongoing" verbal and physical abuse towards her. Kamdem claims Aubry hurled racial epithets at her and shoved her into a door while she was holding Nahla last Wednesday.

In her petition, Kamdem cited another alleged incident in June in which she claims Gabriel violently pushed her out a door.

According to celebrity gossip website, TMZ.com, Kamdem "also said Gabriel didn't like her from the moment she began her duties as a nanny last June. She claims Gabriel said, "You are a spy," and "Nahla doesn't like you, she doesn't want you here."

She said that while she was performing her nanny duties on the set of Halle's movie in Spain, Aubry "would walk over and violently grab/take Nahla away from me."

But the judge wasn't convinced. He called Kamdem's accusations "insufficient and speculative" -- and he advised her to take the matter up in family court. The judge rejected her claims probably because what Kamdem was saying didn't make sense without Aubry's side of the story.

Kamdem has since quit her position as Halle's nanny.

The Atlanta Journal reports that the body of a woman found Monday in southeast Atlanta might be Stacey Nicole English, 36, who was reported missing in December 2011.

"The decedent is an adult black female, consistent in age with reported missing person Stacey English," said chief medical examiner Randy Hanzlick, though it remains unclear whether the body is that of the missing Buckhead woman.

According to the AJC, two men searching for scrap metal stumbled upon the body on Monday in a wooded area less than a mile away from where English's white Volvo was found abandoned with the engine running.

The body was “in an advanced state of decomposition,” Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos told the AJC.

APD notified English's family of the discovery. “If this is not her, I have to still be sad because it’s someone else’s child," said Bernice English Hurks, English's aunt.

“I can’t base my emotions on what I think," English Hurks said. The hardest thing now, she said, “is not knowing.”

An autopsy is underway to identify the body and to determine the cause of death.

TMZ.com reports that Halle Berry, 45, has arrived at court for her showdown with baby daddy Gabe Aubry, 35.

As you know, Halle's nanny quit last week after Gabe flew into a rage and slammed her against a door -- while she was holding Nahla in her arms.

A previous court order stipulated that a nanny must be present at all times while Aubry has custody of Nahla. But Aubry kept Nahla out of school last week without informing the nanny who went to the school to pick her up.

A police report was filed by the nanny accusing Aubry of assault.

Denise Vasi's "love interest" on the upcoming season of VH1's 'Single Ladies' has been revealed -- and no, it's not LisaRaye or Queen Latifah.

From VH1 blog:

We’ve mentioned our fondness for the lovely Denise Vasi, the actress who has joined the cast of Single Ladies for season two, but right now we might be more jealous of her than anything. Vasi posted a few pictures to her Twitter account last night from a dinner where she was joined by her new co-star and on-screen love interest, William Levy. There’s a reason this guy was voted People En Espanol‘s Sexiest Man Alive in 2011. Good Lord. Pretty sure we’ve never seen as good-looking a couple as this. More hotness is below in our gallery, and to catch up on all the latest Vasi/Levy news, follow them on Twitter @denisevasi and @willylevy29.

I guess we can see the direction that 'Single Ladies' is going in, huh?

Actress Cynthia Nixon, 45, has angered gay rights activists by saying she chooses to be gay. Nixon insists that, for her, being gay is a choice, just like being celibate or bisexual is a choice.

The former 'Sex and the City' star's choice of words flies in the face of what gay rights advocates want us to believe -- that being gay is not a choice.

But Nixon, who has 2 biological children with her old college sweetheart, Daniel Mozes, said “Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate."

“I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better.’ And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice,” she said. “I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it’s a choice, then we could opt out. I say it doesn’t matter if we flew here or we swam here, it matters that we are here and we are one group and let us stop trying to make a litmus test for who is considered gay and who is not.

I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn’t realize I was gay, which I find really offensive. I find it offensive to me, but I also find it offensive to all the men I’ve been out with.”

According to Radaronline.com, "The Huffington Post reports that America Blog writer John Aravosis is amongst those displeased by Nixon’s “choice” of words."

"It's not a 'choice,' unless you consider my opting to date a guy with brown hair versus a guy with blonde hair a 'choice,'" he writes. "It's only a choice among flavors I already like... every religious right hatemonger is now going to quote this woman every single time they want to deny us our civil rights."

British singer Seal is on a cross country promo tour for his new album of 70s Soul classics, Soul 2, which dropped today in the U.S. The album was originally released in November 2011 in Europe.

On Sunday, Seal, 48, and his supermodel wife, Heidi Klum, 38, announced their separation after 7 years of marriage and 4 kids together. Coincidence or publicity stunt for his new album?

Yesterday, Seal was a guest on the 'Tavis Smiley Show' on PBS (he also stopped by the Ellen Show). On both shows, Seal talked about his new album, but the questions inevitably turned to the split between he and his wife.

Seal told Tavis that the separation did not make recording his album difficult. "just because you decide to separate... you don't stop loving each other. You don't... stop being friends," said Seal. He added: "What one has to do is remain civil to retain one's dignity... It's unfortunately a chapter of life."

Love & Hip Hop Finale aired last night on VH1. Due to the feds action against Megaupload, the file sharing services are running scared. So this is the only working link, but it is slow. You have to let the video load totally, and then rewind to play.

Anyway, the big question on everyone's mind is why did Chrissy Lampkin, 40, advise Emily B to settle for her man cheating as long as she doesn't know about it? The answer is: Chrissy is living in a thing called reality.

She knows that her man might be loyal to her and he loves her, but men are very easily tempted by cunning and crafty tricks and gold diggers.

Men are flawed from birth. A man's egos is designed to be impressed by chicks who show interest in them. They wouldn't be men if they didn't respond to the attention from hot broads. I'm not sure why that's so hard for you women to understand. You're not being realistic if you don't comprehend that men cheat.

Also in this episode, Olivia confronts DJ Funkmaster Flex, Emily is still desperate and clinging to Fabolous hoping they live happily ever after. Kimbella announces she's pregnant. Can Kimbella take care of her two sons with the reality show paychecks she gets after boyfriend Juelz Santana is arrested? And messy Yandy is still a mess. Nothing will change on that end.

Please remember that these shows are partially scripted, meaning the plots and drama are strongly "suggested" by the show's producers.

Gabe Aubry has serious issues. This, according to Halle Berry, who is taking the Canadian underwear model back to court for losing his cool and assaulting her nanny.

Radaronline.com reports that Aubry hurled racial epithets and physically assaulted their daughter Nahla's nanny last week. It seems that Aubry kept Nahla home from school for 2 days because he claimed she the 3-year-old was sick. But Aubry neglected to tell Nahla's nanny, who went to the child's private school looking for her.

"The nanny went to pick Nahla up at school and she wasn't there, so she went to Gabriel's home," a source told RadarOnline.com. "Gabriel and the nanny got into an argument because no one alerted her that Nahla didn't go to school."

The source told RadarOnline.com Aubry allegedly called the nanny a racial slur, before things took a turn for the physical.

"She picked up Nahla to leave and Gabriel yelled at her and shoved her out the door so hard that she hit the wall -- while she had Nahla in her arms!" the source alleges, adding that the nanny claims the abuse is ongoing.

According to Radaronline.com, the nanny is so distraught that she has turned in her resignation. Good for Halle for standing up for her people!

According to TMZ, the police report has been filed. Click image to read the report.

Maybe Soul legend Aretha Franklin reads my blog because she called off the wedding to her fiance Willie Wilkerson, according to published reports. And not a moment too soon.

Everyone knows Miss ReRe is not the best judge of character when it comes to smooth talking brothas. Had Ms. Franklin gone ahead and walked down the aisle with Mr. Wilkerson, he would have been ex-husband #4 for sure.

Rumors started last week that ex lovers Rihanna and Chris Brown were seeing each other again, but the rumors are not true. Brown and his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, were spotted leaving the Greystone Manor separately, and at different times, after a night of partying.

Chris Brown left the club through the front door and climbed into his Range Rover with his girlfriend, KT, and some friends, while Rihanna, looking desperate and lonely, left through a side door and got into a waiting SUV with a bodyguard. My sources tell me Rihanna and CB didn't speak to each other. The media insists on putting these troubled kids back together, but the truth is they are just friends.

Meanwhile, Rihanna was spotted looking wasted as she arrived at LAX airport from Hawaii where she was spotted smoking pounds of weed and drinking to drunken excess. Rihanna looked terrible and we're all worried for her. The way Rihanna looks now, even Chris Brown doesn't want her.

I didn't watch last night's episode of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta, but from what I could tell from watching part 1 of the video, Marlo and NeNe are besties now (probably a mandatory requirement of their Bravo TV contracts). When NeNe describes her and Marlo's friendship, she can't even keep a straight face. She knows she's lying!

Marlo gives Nene a tour of her "mansion", which in reality was a foreclosed townhome she purchased (or leased) near St. Joseph's hospital in Sandy Springs.

Marlo got the townhouse for a steal just below $300K. But you can't tell that from watching Marlo's go on and on about her high security surveillance to protect her from stalkers. And what does she need with a staff in that little house? Just to show you how small her house is, the 3rd floor consists of her bedroom and a smaller bedroom which she converted into a closet.

If you look at the pictures from Marlo's viewing party held in December, her decorator, Michele Boyd, did a good job of making the basement of the townhouse look like a grand mansion. But don't be fooled.

Also, in this episode, Kim Zolciak dissolves into tears at the thought of her baby daddy Kroy Biermann leaving her to play for the Atlanta Falcons on the road (whose going to play with her while he's gone).

Director George Lucas' corny, fictionalized account of the heroics of the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II finished a respectable #2 at the box office this weekend.

According to Box Office Mojo, Red Tails took in more than $19 million over the 3-day weekend. The #1 box office hit this weekend was 'Underworld Awakening,' which raked in $25.4 million.

Lucas, who financed Red Tails with $6 million of his own money, could have made a more realistic movie rather than the romanticized Star Wars remake that it became. But he chose to go with the bells and whistles rather than the harsh realities of flying escort for heavy bombers in Hitler's cold war in 1944-45.

Yesterday, one of my Twitter.com followers informed me that comedienne Roseanne Barr went IN on Beyonce and President Obama for disrespecting Etta James while she was alive. It seems Miss Barr took offense to Obama giving Beyonce the honor of performing Etta's classic "At Last" for his first dance.

Miss James herself expressed outrage at the snub. Particularly since Beyonce did such a horrible job of singing. Everyone agreed that Miss James would have done the song more justice than fame whore Beyonce.

But Roseanne Barr settled the score for Etta on Saturday when she tweeted:

"i have not listened to anything beyonce or jay z has said or recorded since they did that to Etta. Their arrogance was disgusting."

Roseanne also dissed Beyonce's singing, her lacefronts and her fake azz all in one classic tweet!

Naturally, Beyonce's deranged Stans, who have nothing else to do with their boring lives, came for Miss Barr on Twitter with all the ferocity and venom of a pitbull with rabies.

And Roseanne pushed back!

She didn't mince her words either! She let those fools have it with blasts from both barrels of her B*tch Be Gone shotgun! I wish I could have gotten in on the fun on Saturday. But it's never too late to show Beyonce's Stans for the desperate, lonely, psycho losers that they all are.

After the break, I have compiled more of my favorite Roseanne Barr tweets for your entertainment pleasure. Enjoy! :D

Seal with Heidi Klum and two of their children were seen together in a compilation photo dated Jan. 7, 2012.

On Saturday, gossip website TMZ broke the story that supermodel Heidi Klum would file for divorce from singer Seal. 24 hours later, the couple released a statement to the Associated Press announcing their intention to separate.

The announcement was conveniently timed to coincide with the U.S. release of Seal's album of 70s Soul classics remakes, Soul 2, which drops tomorrow (Jan. 24).

This "separation" has all the earmarks of a well-orchestrated publicity stunt. Complete with a convenient leak to a popular gossip website. Sources "directly connected" with Heidi tell TMZ that the couple are separating due to Seal's temper -- not because of a third party. Of course narcissists wouldn't dare cheat on each other, right?

Furthermore, the source tells TMZ that Heidi has become "a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich", which doesn't sit well with Seal. Oh, and did I mention that they still live together under the same roof?

How ironic that Jay Z once said "I'm not a businessman/ I'm a business, man." How right he was.

Rap mogul Jay Z, 42, is a former crack dealing rapper turned businessman who doesn't have a clue what it takes to run a business.

The majority of Jay Z's business holdings were acquired to boost his image and increase his visibility in the corporate world. That explains why his businesses often fail.

Take for instance his 40/40 sports bar in New York city. Jay Z threw a splashy Grand reopening bash for the restaurant/lounge earlier this week. But it was more of a show to make himself the center of attention. It's hard to say who is the biggest fame whore: Jay Z or his wife Beyonce.

Photos of Jay Z schmoozing with billionaire Warren Buffet were splashed all over the media on Wednesday. But within 48 hours, Club 40/40 was shut down by the city's health department for violating a number of health code violations.

Apparently, 40/40 wasn't expecting a visit from the health inspectors so soon.

If Jay was really an astute businessman he would have made sure his establishment was prepared to open to the public, rather than using the reopening as a vehicle to flaunt his wealthy friends to the media.

I'm embarrassed for him.

Another Dopamine-fueled relationship bites the dust. Gossip website TMZ.com is reporting that the fairy tale wedding between singer Seal and supermodel Heidi Klum might be over.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Heidi will file divorce papers in L.A. County Superior Court as early as next week. We're told Heidi will cite "irreconcilable differences" as the cause for the divorce.

The couple married May 10, 2005. They have 3 biological kids. Seal adopted Heidi's eldest girl from a prior relationship.

The couple is famous for renewing their vows every year on their anniversary ... in a lavish ceremony.

As for splitting up the goodies, there's a lot on the line. According to Forbes, in the last year alone, Klum raked in $20 million. It's unclear how much Seal made.

FULL STORY

From the NY Times:

Etta James, whose powerful, versatile and emotionally direct voice could enliven the raunchiest blues as well as the subtlest love songs, most indelibly in her signature hit, “At Last,” died Friday morning in Riverside, Calif. She was 73.

Her manager, Lupe De Leon, said that the cause was complications of leukemia. Ms. James, who died at Riverside Community Hospital, had been undergoing treatment for some time for a number of conditions, including leukemia and dementia. She also lived in Riverside.

Ms. James was not easy to pigeonhole. She is most often referred to as a rhythm and blues singer, and that is how she made her name in the 1950s with records like “Good Rockin’ Daddy.” She is in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame.

She was also comfortable, and convincing, singing pop standards, as she did in 1961 with “At Last,” which was written in 1941 and originally recorded by Glenn Miller’s orchestra. And among her four Grammy Awards (including a lifetime-achievement honor in 2003) was one for best jazz vocal performance, which she won in 1995 for the album “Mystery Lady: Songs of Billie Holiday.”

Hmmm. This would explain the sudden urgency to have a baby to bring the romance back into a stale marriage...

From Gawker.com via CDaN:

This hip-hopper is going to revive the career of the singer he's been sleeping with on the sly. This celebrity divorce will go very smoothly because the husband knows some scandalous secrets about his soon-to-be-ex-wife's family. Now that's better than a pre-nup.

This former almost A list singer who is still gorgeous, but has not had a hit in awhile ... has been the go to person for when this married A+ rapper ... has needed to relax for the past few months because his celebrity wife does not want to help him relax. Is it any surprise that everyone thinks her next album will do really well. I guess she is taking very good care of him.

'Cosby kid' Keshia Knight Pulliam was spotted hanging out with her bff, former Destiny Child Letoya Luckett, at The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday. Where is Keshia getting all this money to afford expensive handbags like a Hermès?

Actress Sandra Bullock was spotted picking her son, Louis Bardo Bullock, up from his private school yesterday in Los Angeles. In other pics, the 2-year-old tyke had a big smile on his face as he and Sandra left the school. I bet he has a ball playing with children his age all day. It has to be boring growing up the only kid in a gigantic mansion.

Now I can see why Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard went ballistic on his crazy baby mama and took her to court. She is very disrespectful! No man -- not even Superman -- would be happy with the idea of his seed in bed with another man.

Royce Reed had the Internet buzzing yesterday when she tweeted the above photo of her current man, Dezmon Briscoe, wide receiver for the Tampa Buccaneers, curled up in bed with her son, Braylon Howard.

Even if Royce is crazy -- Dezmon should know better than to disrespect another man like that. I'm sure Braylon has his own bed to sleep in. And even if Dezmon does occasionally curl up with the kid, he shouldn't let his girl tweet photos of him. Am I wrong?

Dwight Howard and Braylon when he was a baby.

Last night I received a phone call from a very credible source who had information pertaining to the sale of certain X-rated photos.

The photos reportedly show Sean "Diddy" Combs' baby mama, Sarah Chapman, in uncompromising positions with deceased rap legend Tupac Shakur. One of the photos shows Tupac between Sarah's legs. But this is a family-oriented blog so I won't go into more details.

As I said, my source is very credible. You may not know him by name but you've seen his work.

My source said he saw the photos and he confirmed that the woman "busting it wide open" in the pictures with Tupac was Sarah Chapman, who is the mother of Combs' first daughter, Chance.

The way he was talking, it seemed that the copyright owner of the photos wanted a lot of money for them. A lot more money than I would be willing to spend for some pictures of Sarah Chapman -- even if she was butt nekkid.

No, there isn't a sex tape (that was my first question). But apparently, the source of the photos was someone close to Puffy's camp at one time, because my source saw other photos of Sean Combs, LA Reid and Pebbles all vacationing together back in the 90s. In fact, the source has many similar photos of Puffy in his private collection.

I'm sure there's a buyer out there who is willing to fork over some serious dough to get those photos of Sarah cavorting with Tupac!

Last night I was unwinding on social networking website Twitter.com when I decided to have a little fun with reality TV personality, Evelyn Lozada. You see, me, Evelyn and her (very annoying) publicist were cool back when nobody ever heard of her.

It was me who they came to to put out the first rumors about her and Chad Ochocinco being in a relationship. At the time when I started the rumor about them dating, they had only seen each other once (she lived in Florida and Chad was on the west coast filming his show).

Then we fell out over another issue that I won't get into.

Did you guys see the Miami Heat hammer the helpless LA Lakers last night? Once again the blazing Heat won a game without ball hog Dwyane Wade, who's out with a sprained ankle. Kobe Bryant was a non-factor in last night's loss to Miami. I didn't even realize he was in the game until the last 4 minutes of the 4th quarter.

But this post is not about D. Wade and whether the Heat should trade him. It's about the halftime antics of retired NBA player Kenny Smith, who is now a sports analyst for TNT. During a discussion about Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, Smith aired a video montage of the superstars backed with a music video that was so lame I thought it was a comedy skit.

It turns out the girl singing in the video is Smith's daughter, Kayla Brianna, who just signed a record deal with Interscope Records. Tamar Braxton's husband, Vince Herbert, had a hand in bringing this kid to the label.

It really matters who you know in this music industry. You don't have to have an ounce of talent. Kayla is a pretty girl though. But pretty girls with long weaves comes a dime a dozen in a music biz that has a severe shortage of talent.

The 20-year-old maintenance man who pleaded guilty to killing 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera last month was found dead in his cell of an apparent suicide.

Ryun Brunn was arrested on Dec. 7, 2011 and charged with murdering Jorelys who was reported missing by her mother on Dec. 2.

Jorelys was last seen playing with other children in the playground of the apartment complex where she lived. Brunn was hired as a maintenance man at the apartment complex in Nov. 2011. He bragged on facebook about living rent free at the complex.

A Georgia Department of Corrections spokesman said Brunn was found unresponsive in his cell at 4:15 pm, reports Channel 2 Action News. It isn't clear if Brunn was on suicide watch at the time.

Brunn appeared in a Cherokee County courtroom on Tuesday and coldly recounted how he committed the crime. Brunn said after he molested the child, he slashed the girl's throat with a knife and beat her in the head with her own roller skate. Brunn wrapped the girl's body and dumped her in a trash compactor.

"I never had an idea of killing a child in my life ... I was just so terrified and scared. I didn't want her to tell her mom and dad on me and I just ... I cut her," Brunn said. Source

Brunn pleaded guilty to murder and child molestation charges, among other offenses. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

NeNe Leakes made her professional acting debut on FOX TV's 'Glee'. But her skills as an actress are non-existent. In fact, NeNe's role as a high school swim coach earned the distinction of being the Beyonce of acting. NeNe's overacting is just as atrocious as Beyonce's oversinging. You get the point.

Clearly the Real Housewives of Atlanta star didn't practice her lines before she taped the scene. This is classic NeNe - fake as a $2 bill.

Keep your day job NeNe! Oh, I forgot, she doesn't have a day job...
