Hi Auntie Sandra!

Just a quick question. Was Nia Long's new baby Kez (I think that's his name) born with Down Syndrome? I saw a picture of him today and he looks like he was born with that disability. Thanks as always! I know you'll have the information soon.

Sincerely,

Angela

SR responds: Kez looks like a normal, healthy baby to me. He is adorable!

  • She was not scheduled to be a surprise guest on Nicki Minaj's set at the Hot 97 Summer Jam. Rumors swirled that Lauryn Hill and Nas were supposed to come out while Nicki was onstage, but Nicki pulled out of the event after Nicki and her boss, Lil Wayne, took offense to Peter Rosenberg, of Hot 97's morning show, dissing Nicki's attempt at pop music on her last album.

    That's a sore spot for Nicki because she thought she was a crossover star, but her album sales were flat when the pop world (read: Caucasians) didn't embrace her new music.

    Despite Nicki's departure, the show went on with Lauryn and Nas performing without Nicki.

    In a statement on her official twitter account, Ms. Lauryn tweeted:

    According to ABC News, donations to George Zimmerman's legal defense fund have spiked since Friday when the former neighborhood watch volunteer was ordered back to prison for lying in court.

    Zimmerman, 28, turned himself in at 1:25 p.m. Sunday. He was seen entering the Seminole County jail in shackles.

    Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara said the donations had been coming in at a rate of $1,000 a day. But the amount has spiked since Friday when the judge revoked his bond.

    O'Mara said Zimmerman has about $193,000 in his defense fund, minus $20,000 that was spent on "living expenses, hotels and security ... because of death threats."

    Zimmerman is charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February in Sanford, Florida.

    Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, are accused of speaking in code during jail house conversations in order to hide $155,000 in cash donated to a personal PayPal account.

    Facebook is in big trouble.

    First, the much-hyped initial public offering of Facebook stock barely cracked its launch price of $38 on May 18 before plummeting to $26 today.

    And now shareholders are accusing the world's #1 social network of vastly overestimating the value of its stock by claiming to be worth more than Microsoft, Kraft Foods and Ford Motor company.

    Small shareholders, who lost millions on the first day of the IPO launch, are screaming foul amid a flurry of lawsuits and complaints. It seems that Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg knew his company didn't have the revenue to justify his $1 billion valuation.

    The shareholders accuse 28-year-old Zuckerberg of dumping millions of shares of his own stock for a billion dollar profit before the IPO launched.

    And now, in what some are seeing as a desperate move, Facebook has announced it is developing technology to allow children under 13 access to the network.

    Although I love modeling my passion is working with children with disabilities like autism. I currently attend Morgan State University and majoring in child psychology. I enjoy sporting events, movies, theater, music, night clubs, and other social gatherings.

    Last week, a close friend of local attorney Phaedra Parks reached out to me via phone to ask, "Why are they saying Phaedra and Apollo broke up?"

    She was referring to the blog chatter and Twitter rumors that reality TV personality Phaedra Parks's husband, Apollo Nida, moved out of Phaedra's house.

    Phaedra's friend wondered why the blogs were writing these things about Phaedra and Appollo breaking up when they are still together.

    One blogger in particular, Michelle, of Straight From the A blog, wrote a post suggesting that Apollo is tweeting random groupies from an apartment somewhere in Buckhead. But Apollo doesn't have a job, so how can he afford to pay the rent on an apartment?

    NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire proposed to his baby mama, Alexis Welch, today in Paris -- and he tweeted a pic of the memorable moment for his followers on Twitter.com!

    Amar'e, 29, tweeted: "Paris, the food, & lights were very romantic. When she said yes, it was surreal. I’m still floating."

    All it took for Amar'e to find real love was to date a shallow woman. Amar'e, the 6 ft 11 center for the NY Knicks, left Alexis, the mother of his three children, for superstar singer Ciara last year.

    But their romance was tumultuous and brief.

    This behavior is typical of most ball players who hit the big time -- and become easy targets for gold diggers and fame chasers. The ones who suffer the most are the loyal, faithful girlfriends who stood by their men during thick and thin.

    World champion boxer Floyd Mayweather, 35, will trade his lavish 22,000 square foot mansion for an empty 6-by-10 ft jail cell today.

    The egotistical boxer will report to the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas this morning, where he will spend the next 87 days for punching out his baby mama in front of their children.

    "Money" Mayweather, who is used to traveling with suitcases filled with cash, will be allowed a maximum of $30 on his books to purchase basic necessities, such as toiletries and underwear. If he's not in solitary confinement (for his own protection), he will spend one hour exercising or watching TV. The other 23 hours will be spent alone in his cell.

    Earlier this year a judge allowed Mayweather to delay the start of his 87-day sentence to train for his fight with Miguel Cotto on May 5th. Mayweather won the fight by unanimous decision, and pocketed a cool $50 million.

Rihanna got frisky with her rumored significant other, Melissa Forde -- although Melissa has gone on record saying she is "strictly dickey."
