You may not know who The Lylas are, but you will. Short for Love You Like A Sister, The Lylas have the sound, and more importantly, the look that the record labels are searching for. In addition to signing a recording contract, the Filipina and Puerto Rican-American singing quartet also signed a modeling contract with Robinsons Department Stores.

The Robinsons Department Store ad campaign will launch later this year, according to ABS-CBN News.

Not content with being in the shadow of their brother Peter, better known as singer Bruno Mars, The Lylas are working on releasing their debut album in October.

Rapper, The Game was spotted dining with his on-again/off-again fiancee Tiffany Cambridge at Hennessey's before taking a romantic Rickshaw ride at Hermosa Beach near Los Angeles. The Game's right thumb was heavily bandaged, probably after knocking out a blogger who dared to write anything bad about Tiffany. As you know, Game tweeted bold threats to bloggers last week -- and no one took the bait that we know of. According to reports, The Game found a sucker network to carry his reality show that no one is going to watch.

Hey Sandra,
I usually never get jealous, but when I saw all these pics of K. Michelle and Ryan Lochte I was sooo envious at the possibility that he could be dating her under the radar. I mean it's rare that you find a Caucasian man with money, super attractive, and SWAG. Most Caucasians have 1 of the 3 mentioned. I've been watching the Olympics for Ryan only. He is soooo FINE! Ryan Lochte is soooo my type. Those grills in his month when he won the gold medal make me think K. Michelle might be his type of girl. Can you do a morning wood on Ryan Lochte on Monday lol

I still think Ryan tiptoes through the tulips, but I am happy to oblige my loyal fans.

According to Michelle of Straightfromthea.com, rapper Lil Scrappy proposed to his long-suffering baby mama, Erica Dixon. Before you get excited, try to remember that reality TV shows are about as "real" as a $3 dollar bill.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's script called for Scrappy to "date" reality TV star Buckeey (who is already in a longterm relationship with an Atlanta photographer). So I knew something had to give for the reunion.

Serena Williams excited her west coast viewers after she crip walked following her historic first Olympic gold medal win in London. But not everyone was happy for her. Radio deejays Rosenberg and K.Foxx ripped Serena for incorporating the widely recognized gang dance move into her celebrations.

The Crips are one of the largest and most violent gangs in gang-infested Los Angeles, and the Crip Walk supposedly spells out the name of the Crips with intricate footsteps.

But the truth is that humans and animals simply adapt psychosocially to our environments. In other words, we like what we like -- whether what we like is a man, woman, child, or horse.

A new study reveals a sure-fire way to tell if someone is gay or straight: it's all in the eyes.

Olympic darling Gabrielle Douglas isn't bothered by ignorant comments about her hair. She knows that people who talk negatively about others are hurting inside.

In an interview Sunday, the 16-year-old said she read some of the comments on the Internet after winning her 2nd gold medal in the London Olympics.

"I don't know where this is coming from. What's wrong with my hair?" said Douglas, the first U.S. gymnast to win gold in team and all-around competition. "I'm like, 'I just made history and people are focused on my hair?'"

Douglas says she uses gel, clips and a ponytail holder to keep her hair in place while she competes in the Olympic gymnast competition. She's worn her hairstyle -- a combination of synthetic sew-ins mixed with her real hair -- for years.
