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.

Just weeks after coming out of the closet, Anderson Cooper's boyfriend was caught kissing another man. The popular CNN anchor kicked open his closet door just days after singer/songwriter blazed the trail by coming out on his Tumblr page.

Anderson must be devastated. But gay male relationships are known to be the most unstable because men were born to cheat (in my opinion). If you think it's hard to keep your man from straying in heterosexual relationships, imagine being a gay male and expecting your man not to be turned on by other hawt men.

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James tweeted this pic of himself wearing his gold medal after Team USA defeated Spain 107-100 in final round play at the 2012 Olympics on Sunday. The win didn't come easy for the world's #1 team. They had to come from behind to secure the win against Pau Gasol and Spain's best playmakers.

"We knew it wasn't going to be easy. We didn't want it easy," LeBron James said. "A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn't want it that way. We're a competitive team, and we love when it gets tight. That's when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in '08."

The United States won the gold race, taking home 46 of the precious metals.

I can't stop laughing at these two fools! They will do anything to promote their wack reality show.

From TMZ.com:

Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1's "Basketball Wives."

Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, says the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead.

Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several house and her injury required stitches.

According to our sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple's Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued.

We're told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident.

Johnson is reportedly still in custody and wil have to go before a judge before he can be released.

Johnson and Lozada were married last month in Miami after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.

Story developing ...

Dwight Howard will suit up in a Los Angeles Laker uniform against LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA Finals, if NBA fans get their way.

Howard was traded to the Lakers Friday in a four-team, 12-player deal, ESPN reports. Howard, the NBA's dirtiest player, and Kobe Bryant, the NBA's biggest cry baby, are on the same team.

The deal sends Andrew Bynum from the Lakers to the 76ers and Andre Iguodala from the 76ers to Denver Nuggets.

Other Orlando players involved in the 12-player deal include guard Chris Duhon and forward Earl. The Magic also traded guard Jason Richardson to Philadelphia.

    Beyonce has responded to criticism that she and hubby, Jay Z, turned their backs on social responsibility. In responce to singer Harry Belafonte's sharp criticism, Beyonce posted this photo op of herself meeting with the United Nations secretary general.

    Beyonce was alarmed by singer Harry Belafonte's statements blasting the couple for not doing enough for minorities in Hollywood.

    And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility.
    'That goes for Jay-Z and Beyoncé, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black. Source

    Rapper 50 Cent dissed music producer Kanye West in an interview in the current issue of XXL magazine. When asked what he thought of Kanye's new track titled "Bad Bitch," Fiddy responded:

    “I mean... if that man feel like she perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye. You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure."

    Saying Kanye was a bad judge of character, 50 added: "[Is there a perfect chick?] I’m not sure. The smartest guys I know have lost being a bad judge of character in that area.”

At least Barbados still considers her as a spokesmodel because she was born there, but cosmetics brand Nivea has washed their hands of her. Turned off by her rampant drug use and bad girl persona, Nivea's new president said he didn't know how Nivea was ever associated with Rihanna.

    Forcible rape of men outside of prison walls is a growing crime trend in the US.

    According to published reports, DaJuan Porter, 27, allegedly met men at nightclubs and followed them home, whereupon he broke into the homes and performed oral sex on the men while they slept.

    Porter seems to have a problem keeping his mouth off men's private parts unless invited to partake. He was arrested for similar crimes before. Last year, he was charged in Worcester County, Maryland, for sexually assaulting his sleeping cell mate in jail.

    Murder suspect George Zimmerman's attorneys formally announced their intention to seek a 'Stand Your Ground' hearing today. Zimmerman, 28, claimed self-defense when he shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in a gated Florida townhome community in February.

    Zimmerman's defense team formally announced today that it would seek a "stand your ground" hearing because case evidence shows "clear support for a strong claim of self-defense," according to the Orlando Sentinel's website.

    But a compilation audio of Zimmerman's 911 call and interrogation tapes reveal a case that is not so clear cut.

    Sandra, The shirt Rasheeda is wearing looks like a piece from Kami Shade's line. If it is, she makes beautiful pieces but in my experience with her line the sequins fell off badly from my inital try on.... she does offer wonderful customer service because my money was refunded completely. I saw a few of your readers commenting about the garment. I also attached a copy of the dress I purchased from Kami Shade', when I wore it for NYE. Hope this is helpful!

    Quite a few of my loyal readers agreed with my opinion that pregnant teenagers should be removed from their schools and sent to an alternative program that focuses on parenting and childbirth.

    Once a teenager becomes pregnant, she becomes a woman with different responsibilities and goals. These teens should not be allowed to distract good girls from receiving a quality education. When the courts and school systems allow pregnant teens in classrooms the implicit message is that teen pregnancy is okay, and even desirable.

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is going after a Louisiana public charter school that targets pregnant teenagers.

    Delhi Charter School’s “Student Pregnancy Policy” states that if a girl refuses to take a pregnancy test -- or turns up in class pregnant, she can be removed from class and sent home.

    The ACLU claims the school's policy violates the U.S. Constitution and federal laws against sexual discrimination.

    ACLU executive director Marjorie R. Esman said the policy violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause because “boys who are expecting children — or who are suspected of having engaged in sexual activity — are not similarly treated."

    "They just ripped me to shreds, and I just thought that that was crazy," said Jones during an appearance on the Today Show Wednesday.

    In addition to the harshly worded article, social media critics on Twitter.com took pot shots at Jones for finishing fourth in the 100m hurdle race at the 2012 Olympics in London.

    "Putting your heart out there, obviously, it opens you up to a lot of negativity," Jones said as tears ran down her face.
