C-list reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, 42, finally spoke out on the publicity stunt that literally blew up in her face. After lying to the public for 2 years about her fake relationship and marriage to troubled NFL star Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, 34, Lozada wants the public to believe her side of the story.

Evelyn tells TMZ, “I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me."

Lozada and Johnson supposedly fought in their car outside their Davie, Florida home Saturday night. A neighbor who called 911 said Johnson "hit" Lozada in the face, resulting in a linear 3-inch gash on her forehead which is not consistent with a head butt. That's the problem when dealing with reality show actors -- it's very difficult to believe anything that comes out of their mouths.

You never know what's crawling around in the ceiling tiles above your head as you sit in class listening to a boring lecture. The students at Costa Rica University of Peace had their peaceful sleep disturbed by a feral cat that fell from the ceiling and dropped at the feet of a sistah who was giving the lecture. Kudos to the sistah for keeping her composure, and not leaping over the table to get away from it like I would have.

Watch the video after the break!

Singer/songwriter Shaffer Chimere Smith, aka Ne-Yo, has been battling pesky gay rumors since the days when he wore lipstick and eyeliner to perform with his boy band on Showtime at the Apollo.

Now that he has 2 children with good pal Monyetta Shaw, the rumors continue to persist. There is no escaping the rumors for sensitive industry men like Ne-Yo who has learned to simply ignore them.

“There’s so many more important and positive things going on in my life, the last thing I’m going to do is focus on somebody that’s still on some ignorance with the whole gay rumor thing,” Ne-Yo told S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown. “If that’s what y’all want to feel about me, by all means do so. Pay no attention to the fact that I got two kids and a beautiful woman at my side. ... Buy the album, though.”

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that two women have been arrested after brazenly targeting Atlanta area police and firefighters in an alleged ID theft scheme.

Michael Phelps didn't waste any time cashing out his Olympic gold for big dollar endorsements. Not even 24 hours after the close of the London Olympic games, Phelps was featured in his first post-2012 Games ad campaign for Louis Vuitton.

Phelps stares seductively while luxuriating in a bathtub in his Speedos and swim goggles. A Louis Vuitton Monogram carry all bag sits near the tub, most likely holding his stockpile of 22 Olympic medals, including 18 golds.

  • If you're an octogenarian whose ultimate goal (other than waking up every morning) was to meet legendary music producer Quincy Jones, you are about to be disappointed.

    Jones, 79, was spotted strolling arm-in-arm in St. Tropez with his current girlfriend. Initially, the paparazzi assumed the younger woman was Jones' nurse. Reports are that his health is declining after suffering a series of mini-strokes last year. But, apparently, Jones has the stamina to keep up with the sexual demands of his young lady love. Good for him.

    Over the weekend, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, 43, and former NFL player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson had a meeting of the minds that didn't end well.

    Johnson, 32, was arrested and charged with assaulting Lozada after he allegedly head butted her, causing a facial injury. Johnson, 32, was pictured bonding out of Broward County jail Sunday morning after paying $2,500 bail. Also on Sunday Johnson learned that he was cut from the Miami Dolphins (not that he cares).

    The news comes just one month after the couple's much-hyped "wedding" in Florida, and just 2 weeks before the premiere of their reality show. These coincidences led to speculation that the couple had pulled a publicity stunt to promote their reality show.
