According to the NY Post's gossip column Page Six, Vogue editor-for-life, Anna Wintour, banned reality Tv star Kim Kardashian from attending her celebrity-studded MET Costume Gala on Monday. Good for her! At least somebody in the media has good taste and common sense.

Kardashian's bestie, rapper Kanye West, attended the event solo, wearing a black tux but no Kim on his arm. This led many to guess correctly that their relationship is indeed just a publicity stunt.

Kim fueled the gossip even further when she tweeted: "So excited to see all the fashion going on in New York tonight at the MET!"-- leading many to believe that she was attending -- or at least standing across the street watching as the stars rolled up in their limos.

But nothing could be further from the truth: Kim was actually thousands of miles away -- in L.A. So why would she lie about seeing the stars in their beautiful fashions? The answer is simple: Kim is a narcissist who lies about everything.

Beyonce Knowles and her husband, rap mogul Jay Z, attended Erica Reid's book launch event Tuesday in New York City. Reid is married to former Deele group member, and record exec, L.A. Reid, who also hosted the event. Attending the event were singer Mary J Blige, Erica and L.A.'s daughter; Beyonce's mother Tina, and Jane Miller, among others. Erica Reid's book is titled 'The Thriving Child' and the party was held at private residence.

It's good to see Jay Z showing affection for Beyonce in public -- especially now that rumors have surfaced about him staying away from home for prolonged periods of time. My sources tell me that Beyonce is adjusting very well to being a single new mother. They say her postpartum depression has lifted somewhat. That's good to hear.

Troubled singer Chris Brown performed "Turn Up The Music" live on 'Dancing With The Stars' Tuesday. The 23-year-old singer and dancer whose gaunt appearance has sparked drug rumors, tweeted the above pic of his ankles just before going on the show. Brown's wasted ankles tell a story of neglect and abuse that doesn't require words.

As you know, Brown's ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, 24, was hospitalized Tuesday for severe dehydration. She tweeted a pic of herself receiving IV fluids. Both Rihanna and Chris are the subjects of rampant drug rumors. This does not bode well for their young fans who are highly impressionable. Hopefully they will get their acts together.

Watch the video after the break.

"Basketball Wives" cast member Tami Roman is being sued by a hair care products company for a breach of contract. The 40-year-old mother of 2 went before a judge this week to stop the company from disrupting the show's shooting schedule, because, as she put it "millions of people," will "suffer" if the show is taken off the air.

Additionally, one company has already pulled ad spots from the scripted show as the result of a petition created by Alexis M., who objects to the fake violence that saturates the show every week.

In an update on Tuesday, Alexis M. reports that Summer's Eve has agreed to pull their ads from both "Basketball Wives" and the spin-off show "Eve and Ocho," which premieres in September.

Yesterday I was tempted to write a Blind Item post on singer Ceelo Green who reportedly keeps a harem of beautiful chicks from here to the west coast, and beyond. But I changed my mind because I do run into him occasionally at the mall, and he seems like a nice enough guy, but you never know.

Word around the industry is, Ceelo is reportedly responsible for paying the bills of a group of jump offs around the country (@MissErika in Texas is allegedly one of them). Ceelo can afford to keep a harem because he is so loaded -- and all the groupies know he's easy.

I'm not even going to mention what people are saying about Ceelo, or the names they are calling him. This is a family oriented blog.

But imagine my surprise today, as I'm perusing my favorite photo service, I spy a photo of Ceelo with yet another well-known Atlanta groupie, Mihwa Monk, also known as singer/actor Jason Weaver's baby mama.

Mihwa, who has been arrested a slew of times for allegedly passing bad checks, is probably one of Atlanta's most famous groupies. She has a son by Jason, and she dated NBA player Antoine Wright, among others. The question isn't who has she been with, but who hasn't she been with?

Troubled singer Rihanna tweeted this pic on her Twitter account Tuesday night of an IV in her left arm. Last October, Rihanna was admitted to a Swedish hospital for an IV infusion after she collapsed following a drug binge. We thought she was doing so much better managing her substance and alcohol abuse.


Adina Parson, the attorney who was shot 8 times -- 3 times in the head -- was transferred to Shepherd Center where she will undergo rehab to improve her quality of life.

Parson's husband, Michael Parson, is accused of shooting his wife with the intent to kill.

Parson, 40, was shot as she left the Residences of Morgan Falls Apartments, off Roswell Road, around 11:45 p.m. on April 20. She was reportedly heading to pick up her husband from work.

Sandy Springs police initially said Michael Parson was not a suspect in the shooting. But Parson, who was cooperative at the start of the investigation, later refused to answer questions after holes developed in his story.

Parson remains in a Texas jail where he has been since he was stopped by the Texas Highway Patrol just before midnight Saturday. He was apprehended one day after Sandy Springs police issued a warrant for his arrest.

"He was taken into custody without incident," said Capt. Steve Rose of Sandy Springs police.

The national media gets it wrong again. one headline this morning read: "Chris Brown Proves Money Can't Buy Style In Ugly $7,000 Versace Jacket".

Other media outlets also blasted Brown for dropping 7 stacks on the garish Versace for H&M bomber jacket.

But the jacket retails for only $129, according to the store's website, and

Brown, who has two women fighting for his affections (Rihanna and Karrueche), stepped out last night for the opening of “AV Nightclub” in Hollywood wearing the Versace for H&M Bomber jacket with a Los Angeles Lakers logo beanie, blue jeans, and Air Jordan Retro 4 sneakers ($160).

An 11-year-old Texas boy was hospitalized after his stepfather beat him severely with a belt, then poured salt and vinegar into his open wounds.

According to a criminal complaint, the boy was found by police curled up in a fetal position on a sofa, with bloody bandages on his limbs, hips, buttocks, and back.

Police say the child had been beaten for months by his adoptive father, causing agony, pain and disfigurement. Police were alerted to the shocking abuse by teachers at Seabrook Intermediate School who hadn't seen the child in weeks.

They asked police to conduct a welfare check on the boy.

The boy's mother, Merilyn Parks, 35, and stepfather, Kerry Dean Parks, 50, have been charged with causing serious bodily injury to a minor.

Kerry Parks was taken into custody, but Mrs. Parks remains at large.

A Texas judge has granted former NFL great Deion Sanders temporary custody of his 3 youngest children -- 2 boys and a girl -- by estranged wife Pilar Sanders.

The judge also ordered psychological counseling for the 3 children, and he upheld a previous order for Pilar Sanders to stay 500 yards away from the mansion she once shared with Sanders.

Pilar showed up to court with her right arm in a sling. Her right wrist was immobilized in a black plastic cast.

Witnesses told the judge Pilar's injuries were the result of Sanders defending himself from her and her friend, who attacked him outside his bedroom. Pilar and Sanders were separated but lived in opposite ends of the $5.7 million mansion in suburban Prospect, Texas.

Both Pilar and Deion appear to have lost weight since the fracas on April 23rd.

    Beyonce won the unofficial Worst Dressed Award at the 2012 Metropolitan Museum Gala, themed "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" in NYC Monday night. Beyonce arrived wearing a long sleeve, black sheer Givenchy Couture frock adorned with purple and black feathers. She looked like a confused peacock. What was she thinking?? No, those aren't gloves she's wearing; that's the sleeve of the gown which covered her hands. Instead of wearing black underneath the gown, she wore a nude colored Spandex which did not match her skin. Everyone is buzzing about how hideous Beyonce looked last night. She attempted to outdress everyone at the gala but she only ended up making herself look ridiculous!

    The mainstream media is angry at President Obama this morning. Not because of the spiraling deficit or the lack of jobs production. They are angry that the president failed to mention the passing of Adam Yauch, also known as MCA, one third of the Beastie Boys who died of salivary gland cancer over the weekend.

    I guess it doesn't matter that the ones who are angry are mostly white, and they don't really understand the complexities or the roots of hip hop anyway.

    If they did understand, then they would know that the black community as a whole did not embrace the Beastie Boys in the 1980s like they did. Yes, the Beastie Boys introduced hip hop to a whole new audience -- mainly drunk college frat boys.

    And for that reason, Washington Times columnist Joseph Curl thinks the president should have at least mentioned MCA to the college kids he spoke with over the weekend.

    "Make no mistake," writes Curl, "MCA was no JayZ or Kanye West... Funny the 'coolest president ever' doesn’t say a word about the passing of MCA. Weird and kinda sad, actually."

    Well, not as sad as a race-baiting columnist expecting the president to recognize the passing of a star because he's "half-white".

    The above image of singer Rihanna pummeling Chris Brown's girlfriend Karrueche Tran is Photoshopped, but Rihanna continues to play cat-and-mouse games with Brown's main squeeze.

    When Rihanna tweeted birthday greetings to Brown on Saturday, Karrueche quickly followed up with her own tweet. But Rihanna beat her to the punch, so to speak, by wishing a happy birthday to the troubled singer who beat her so badly in 2009 that she was spitting up blood.

    You have to feel sorry for Karrueche. She's waging a losing public battle against a superstar who is determined to win her man back.

    Not everyone in New York is excited about rap mogul Jay Z taking a more hands on approach with the NY Nets.

    NY Post columnist Phil Mushnick rankled readers with a racist, venom-filled column on Jay Z's minority ownership of the NY Nets.

    In his Equal Time column today, Mushnick wrote the following diatribe about the Nets' new name, cheerleaders and logo which was designed by the aging rap mogul:

    "Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York Niggas? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn Bitches or Hoes," he wrote.

    From NY Mag:

    As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?

    Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!

    Recognizing the signs of flirting is very important when you're on the dating scene, or looking to make a change in your life.

    It can be the difference between wasting your time with an uninterested female or meeting your future wife.

    Body language and non-verbal signals are very effective. They convey an entire story without one word being spoken.

    The signs of flirting are universal and very easy to pick up on if you know what you're looking for. According to, when you recognize the signs of flirting, you know the right things to do and not do as well.

    When a woman is flirting, the most obvious sign to look for is the eye glance. She will zero in on you from across the room, and when she sees you looking at her, she will quickly glance away. Before long, you will both make prolonged eye contact until one of you makes the first move.

    After witnessing the delivery of his newborn baby boy in Miami on Thursday, Chris Bosh boarded a private jet to New York City, where he helped his Miami Heat team crush the hapless NY Knicks 87-70 in game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Knicks becomes the first team to lose 13 consecutive post-season games in the history of the NBA.

    Bosh's wife, Adrienne, posted this pic of their newborn son, Jackson, on her Instragram page just moments ago.

    By naming their son Jackson, Adrienne and Chris joins the newest trend in hip parenting: giving their children last names. My attorney, Precious Anderson-Scott, of the Anderson Firm, also named her 2-year-old son Jackson, and her 2-month-old son is named Davis.

    Gheys and lesbians are celebrating the biggest news since the passage of the gay marriage law in New York in 2011.

    Hollywood's most well-known lesbian, Queen Latifah, has finally come out of the closet. The rapper-turned-actress made the transition quietly, in a press release announcing her commitment to headline this year's annual Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride Festival.

    It is the first time that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has ever participated in a Gay Pride celebration. was the first to break the scoop that Latifah, 42, and her longtime lover Jeanette Jenkins had split up in 2011 (thanks to my west coast connect for the tip!).

    That's when Latifah began dating a choreographer, who some say helped break up her relationship with Jenkins.

    Samuel L. Jackson is sick and tired of hearing the word "snakes" whenever he flies on a commercial airliner. "Just drive the damn plane!" he recently told a pilot who made a reference to Jackson's role in the campy 2006 film "Snakes On A Plane".

    Jackson, 63, was similarly outraged when a movie critic gave his latest film, The Avengers, a bad review. Jackson took to his account on Thursday and urged his 825,000+ followers to help NY Times critic AO Scott find a new job -- "One he can ACTUALLY do!”.

    The Avengers, which grossed $300 million so far overseas, and is expected to break box office records in the U.S. this weekend, has been panned by critics everywhere. But Jackson took particular offense to Scott's review of the Joss Whedon-directed Disney film.

    R&B crooner Usher Raymond appears to be stressing on day 3 of the Epic Raymond vs Raymond child custody battle in the Fulton County courthouse.

    According to my spy, who has attended all of the court sessions, Usher had a very good day in court yesterday. His children's court-appointed guardian recommended that Usher receive full custody of his and Tameka Foster's two sons.

    The court appointed guardian is back on the witness stand today. And my source tells me that Tameka Raymond's attorney scored some huge points in her cross-examination of the court ordered guardian.

    (See what the children's court appointed guardian looks like after the break.)

    Musician Swizz Beatz and his wife, singer Alicia Keys bid against each other for a guitar autographed by legendary pop/rock group the Rolling Stones. Afterwards, Alicia bought a penguin drawn by Swizz and the school kids at the Bronx Charter School for the Arts Auction at Marque, in NYC. All proceeds from the auction goes to benefit the school. Don't you love it when overindulged celebrities give back?

    Also attending the event were La La Anthony and La La's husband Carmelo Anthony (partially obscured behind Alicia), who has to worry about his team beating the steamrolling Miami Heat in game 3 of the Eastern Conference playoffs tonight. If the NY Knicks drop game 3, they will go down in NBA history as the only team to lose 13 consecutive games in the playoffs.

    According to ESPN, Chris Bosh left practice in New York to fly home to Miami where his wife Adrienne went into labor with the couple's first child. The couple were married last Summer and are expecting a baby boy. Bosh already has a daughter by a former jump off.

    I ran into Bosh and Adrienne at the upscale Jeffrey shoe boutique inside the Phipps Plaza almost two months ago. The attention that he paid to her while she strolled around the store was so adorable. He is clearly a happy man.


    The Heat were told late Wednesday that Bosh had to return home. Bosh left from New York on a private plane, and his wife, Adrienne, posted a photo on a social media account saying "hurry home."

    FAA records showed Bosh's charter flight arrived in Miami shortly after 2 a.m. ET on Thursday. He arrived in New York with the Heat on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., before being called back to Miami about five hours later.

    Bosh had earlier indicated that he'd be ready at a moment's notice.

    "I've got a beeper so when it goes off, I'll be ready," Bosh said. "It's an exciting time, I'm trying to compete for a championship and prepare for new life. It is a busy time in the Bosh household."
