Troubled singer Rihanna stepped out Monday night with her lover Melissa Forde. Rihanna looked stunning in a silver metallic maxi dress and a light blue denim vest, while Melissa wore a black aviator jacket and jeans. Rihanna and Mel walked arm-in-arm as they left their Midtown hotel and headed to dinner at Da Silvano in New York City. Melissa looks a lot more comfortable playing the butch role -- at least in public. But friends say Rihanna is the dominant one in their relationship.

Pilar Sanders' mugshot has hit the internets. In the mugshot taken at a Dallas jail last night following her arrest on domestic abuse charges, Pilar smirks at the camera. The fallout from Sanders' arrest is likely to be huge. She will certainly lose custody of her minor children, and any endorsements she acquired as a result of being married to former NFL star Deion Sanders.

A judge will probably force her to move out of the residence she shares with Deion, since he will ask for a restraining order. According to Deion's daughter, Deiondra Sanders, Pilar had refused to move out of the mansion.

Deion took to his Twitter page last night to tweet about the attack by Pilar and a female friend, known as @Toothickchick on

President Barack Obama is inching closer to becoming the modern day Big Brother in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

According to the Mail Online, the FAA was forced to reveal 63 spy plane launch sites in 20 states, including Georgia.

Most of the active drones are deployed from military installations, enforcement agencies and border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation Authority.

But 19 "registered owners" of the unmanned spy planes are universities, including Georgia Tech. (View the map)

The specific purpose of the drones within the U.S. are unknown (the FAA says it will release this information later). But in Europe the drones are used to spy on government installations and civilians.

An actor accidentally hanged himself while re-enacting the death of Judas in an Easter play. The tragic accident took place in the town of Itarare, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The actor, Tiago Klimeck, 27, hanged himself when he jumped off of a 4-foot perch with a stage noose around his neck. The noose was attached to a vest, like the kind used in movies, which is designed to break his fall and give the illusion that he was being hanged.

But the vest malfunctioned -- or wasn't secured properly. So when Klimeck jumped, the vest slid up and crushed his trachea (airway). Once his trachea was crushed, he could neither cry out nor breath. It was a slow and agonizing death. Klimeck's cast members in the play didn't realize he was choking to death.

The subpar ratings for the Residences of Morgan Falls apartments in the Sandy Springs suburb of Atlanta tells the story of residents living in fear for their lives.

It's not just the open air drug dealing, or the crumbling structures that cause 2nd floor railings to give way at the slightest touch -- it's the two shootings that occurred there within a week of each other.

Just two days after turning 40, attorney Adina Parson was shot eight times -- 3 times in the head -- and left for dead in the breezeway of her apartment building.

On Monday she was in critical but stable condition in Grady Memorial hospital's ICU unit, a close friend told the AJC.

So far, Sandy Springs police have no leads.

“Adina is very loving person so we’re all baffled," Lisa Baker, Parson's friend, said by telephone from Grady. "It just doesn’t fit. We’re just dumbfounded."

Parson was on her way to pick her husband up from work when she was shot around 11:45 p.m. Friday, according to the AJC. The shooter, laying in wait, emptied a gun clip into her -- a sign that the shooting may not have been random.

Troubled singer Chris Brown has lost a frightening amount of weight in recent weeks. So much so that his concerned fans are emailing me wondering if I know what ails him.

I reached out to Brown's handlers today to inquire about his unexplained weight loss. A confidential informant confided that Brown is not on drugs -- he is simply "pining away" for his ex, Rihanna.

They also say Brown is despondent over his stalled career and his loveless relationship with girlfriend Karrueche Tran. "He's only with her for his public image," said a source about Karrueche. "He's not in love with [Karrueche], he's in love with Rihanna," the source added.

Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, 28, was released from the Seminole County Jail after posting bail in Sanford, Florida, early Monday morning. Zimmerman, wearing a brown Pittsburgh Steelers jacket and blue jeans, walked out of the jail and climbed into a white BMW before speeding off.

Zimmerman will stand trial on second-degree murder charges in the death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin later this year.

He was granted $150,000 bail by a judge on Friday. During the bond hearing, Zimmerman apologized to Trayvon's parents despite their refusal to meet with him.

Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara was praised for urging his client to take the stand. But in a surprising reversal today, O'Mara apologized for Zimmerman's apology, saying the apology was "ill-timed."

There is no doubt that men are useful in a lot of ways. Unfortunately, men have two glaring weaknesses that could threaten an entire democracy -- sex and women.

As a group, men cannot be depended upon to maintain composure and professionalism when the opportunity for quick sex presents itself.

As demonstrated so disgracefully in Cartagena, Colombia -- the portion of a man's brain that is responsible for good judgment shuts off completely when he is in the presence of a sexy woman.

For that reason, the White House is considering hiring more female Secret Service agents in supervisory positions over men.

Agents such as Paula Reid, a black woman who blew the whistle on the 12 agents for cavorting with as many as 20 prostitutes in Colombia.

Labrador retrievers are not known for this type of violence. But police say a family's "gentle" lab tore the legs off of a 2-month-old infant as his father slept soundly in the next room.

From the NY Daily News:

A supposedly "gentle" pooch named Lucky is suspected of killing a 2-month-old baby and tearing the child's body apart in South Carolina.

Aiden McGrew, who was born on Valentine's Day and was the youngest of three children, was found dead in his family's mobile home Friday in Ridgeville by his mother, according to The Post and Courier newspaper.

The baby was in a swing when Lucky, a golden retriever-Labrador mix, bit the child several times and tore off his legs, authorities said.

The child's father, Quintin, was in the home at the time, police said. He was in another room asleep with the family's 3-year-old and their other dog.

The baby was discovered when his mother, Chantel, came home after taking their seven-year-old to a doctor's appointment, The Post and Courier reported.
