Pub singer Beyoncé was seen entering an office building in New York City today. It’s the same office building that Bey was seen entering almost daily when she was supposedly pregnant. I’m told the building is where Beyoncé and Tina Knowles’ clothing line is housed — and that Beyoncé is actually working a 9-5 job overseeing designs, patterns, fabric selections and things of that nature. Maybe she’s not such a dummy after all? Photo: Tom Meinelt-Jason Winslow/Splash

Speaking of eager, reality TV personality Sheree Whitfield was seen strutting down a New York street with a friend today. Sheree looks like she’s living the good life, packing on weight. The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ cast member looks a far cry from the way she did back in 2008 during her weight training days. I bet she wishes she could be that toned again.
CNN reports that Sanford police chief Bill Lee is stepping down “temporarily” while the federal probe into his police department’s corrupt cover up of Trayvon Martin case continues.
“I am aware that my role as a leader of this agency has become a distraction from the investigation,” he told reporters. “It is apparent that my involvement in this matter is overshadowing the process. Therefore, I have come to the decision that I must temporarily remove myself from the position.”
He added, “I do this in the hopes of restoring some semblance of calm to the city, which has been in turmoil for several weeks.”
NAACP President Ben Jealous said Lee’s stepping aside is not enough. “Parents don’t feel that their children will be safe with Lee heading the police department,” he said. “He needs to go right now.”
WEtv premiered Trina Braxton’s hot new debut single “Party Or Go Home” today. As you know, Trina is an aspiring singer who once sang background for her superstar sister, Toni Braxton. The single’s syrupy, uptempo production isn’t layered on thick enough to drown out Trina’s newly acquired Canadian accent. It’s a decent debut single for Trina.

Sandra Bullock was seen dropping off little Louis Bullock at his private school in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Sandra dressed Louis in a hoodie. I would like to think she did so to protest the injustice in Florida. But I doubt it.
Singer Rihanna was spotted leaving Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Malibu Wednesday evening. The troubled superstar wore a jewel encrusted gold semiautomatic handgun on a chain around her neck. The leather purse that she carried was embossed with a pair of handcuffs. We all know how much RiRi is into symbolisms. Are the gold handgun and handcuffs a subtle hint of impending violence toward her love rival, Karrueche, who is dating Chris Brown? The 24-year-old Bajan had tongues wagging all over the Internet this morning after she was seen leaving Ashton Kutcher’s home last night.
