Kanye’s beard, Kim Kardashian, tweeted this pic of herself driving her Bentley naked while showing off the personalized car seats embroidered with her initials. It must be nice.
The judge presiding over the contentious Raymond vs Raymond child custody hearing called an emergency meeting after closing arguments today. This, according to my confidential source who was seated in the courtroom during closing arguments.
The confidential source told Sandrarose.com there were two high points in the closing from both sides in this case: Tameka wants her child support to increase by 3k monthly, she also wants her nanny pay to be reimbursed to her in the amount of 34k. She doesn’t want Usher to have over night guests while the kids are with him, and she is adamant about having him return her Sak’s Fifth Avenue credit card back to her.
Alicia Keys released her Instragram video for her single “New Day” today. The video is a montage of images and video footage featuring pictures sent in by her fans. Keys tweeted a link to the video on her Twitter page just moments ago.
See if your photos made the cut after the break.
Vanessa Bryant could count her cash for a week and still leave piles of money untouched. So why doesn’t she leave her womanizing husband, Kobe Bryant? The simple answer is: status.
In a recent interview, Vanessa gave a glimpse into her pampered lifestyle that made it abundantly clear why she stays with a man who continuously cheats on her.
“I’ve been with Kobe since I was 17, so I’ve seen plenty of players, and plenty of wives, come and go,” she said in an interview with New Yorker magazine. “And I think that’s why the Lakers as an organization give me the access that I have — that other wives don’t have.” She’s talking about her access to the tunnel that leads to the locker room that the other wives can’t access. She has all of Kobe’s money, but her exclusive access to the team tunnel is priceless.

What up Sandy,
Love your site… Just passing along a few pix from Gabby’s Instagram account. For all of the ignorant haters choosing to hate on a kid’s hair during competition, she is hooked up with Ted Gibson of tedgibsonbeauty.com. I never heard of dude but seems as if he’s in the fast lane in his field based on his website. Take Care.

Rihanna arrives at Tokyo Narita airport on Thursday. Rihanna will perform at one of the biggest stadium event, Summer Sonic, in Tokyo and Osaka. Rihanna spends most of her days quoting scriptures on social networking website Twitter.com. Rihanna’s obsession with religion is similar to that of mental patients who are not taking their meds as directed. Increased religious obsession usually means worsening depression. Hopefully Rihanna will get the help she needs.
