Hey Sandra,

While visiting your blog today, I noticed that you had a picture of Kim Kardashian shoes in today’s “Celebs Out and About“post. And under the picture you wrote that those shoes were from Kanye West’s Collection. The shoes are actually Christian Louboutin Pigalle Spikes 120 Red Patent Leather Pump. They retail from $1,195 and comes in two additional colors, Nude and Black. I am pretty sure your shoelistas have already contacted you with the correction.

Love your blog,

An arrest warrant has been issued for a man who took his baby mama and their infant along on an armed robbery spree in Buckhead, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A surveillance camera captured a man and a woman sitting with a baby stroller and smoking cigarettes at a table in front of Publix, across from Phipps Plaza, over the weekend.

The video shows the woman occasionally reaching over to rock the stroller to soothe the baby. The couple is believed to have committed an armed robbery shortly afterwards.

According to a police report obtained by the AJC, an elderly man was walking home from Publix when he saw a woman with a stroller and a crying baby. He was approached from behind by a man who put a gun to the back of his head and demanded his wallet and the PIN number to his ATM card.

This post was edited to correct the fact that Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane did not respond to Tameka’s Motion for Recusal. It was attorney John Mayoue who filed a response. Judge Lane legally cannot respond to the motion for recusal.

Usher’s attorney John Mayoue came out swinging in a legal response to Tameka Foster-Raymond’s motion to recuse Judge Lane from presiding over the bitterly contested case of Raymond vs Raymond.

In her Motion for recusal, Foster-Raymond accused the judge of showing bias toward Usher’s attorney John Mayoue who contributed to her 2008 campaign for re-election.

In a lengthy response obtained by HipHopEnquirer.com, Mayoue called Tameka’s petition “an assault on the integrity of the court.” Mayoue called Foster-Raymond’s Motion for recusal “baseless, unwarranted and untimely.”

He argued that “Lawyers and law firms routinely contribute to the election and re-election campaigns of both trial and appellate judges.”

Mayoue pointed out that Tameka’s own co-counsel was hired by a law firm that also contributed to the judge’s re-election coffers.

President Barack Obama already has the black vote on lock, so he has successfully steered clear of tackling issues that would improve our lot, such as the staggering unemployment among blacks. Even though most blacks and Latinos oppose gay rights, Obama has campaigned heavily to Hispanics and gays — while cementing his position that he is not a crusader for black people.

Last night, the official ‘black president’ — Bill Clinton gave a stirring, impactful speech for President Obama’s re-election at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC. Although Clinton didn’t explicitly say it, his message was clear: hang on in there folks; Obama has your back if he wins a second term.

The Democratic National Convention is in full swing in Charlotte, NC. Among the jubilant Obama devotees wearing ‘Vote Black’ buttons while chanting “four more years,” are a smattering of Obama detractors who are still looking for that Hope & Change that Obama promised the nation four years ago.

Some DNC attendees are cautiously optimistic that the Democrats will provide answers for the double digit unemployment in the black community and the triple digit deficit. They hope that Obama will say more to uplift black people than what he has already said to distance himself from blacks.

“I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America,” Obama said in a recent interview with an internationally known black journalist.

“I think I’ll vomit,” said Cornel West, the religion and African-American studies scholar and activist, who was once an Obama supporter. “It’s nothing but a ploy.”

Singer Lauryn Hill was among the many mourners who turned out for the funeral of producer/manager Chris Lightly in New York City today. Lighty, 44, took his own life in his Bronx townhouse last week. He leaves behind 6 children.

Sources say Lighty’s divorce from his trophy wife, Veronica Lighty, weighed heavily on him and he wasn’t the same man in the final months of his life.

But Veronica Lighty told the NY Daily News that their last argument — in the moments before he shot himself — was not the reason Lighty committed suicide.

Socialite Amber Rose is playing coy with her followers on Twitter.com by not admitting she’s pregnant. What’s the big deal? Is she waiting for a media outlet to offer her enough cash to reveal her pregnancy? I can’t imagine why anybody outside of Twitter.com cares whether she’s pregnant or not.

There are rumors that Rose will announce her pregnancy on this week’s MTV VMA’s the way Beyonce did when she was ‘pregnant’ with that pillow last year. But does Rose have an album out? Why would she be onstage at the VMAs? So many questions…

Even Rose’s sperm donor, rapper Wiz Khalifa, is in on the games. In a response to Q DEEZY on Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9FM WIZ said, “I want babies. I definitely want to have kids for sure. Oh, you all think Amber’s pregnant? Cause I’ve been asked that. Do you think Amber’s pregnant?”

Supposedly Rose is due to deliver her infant in January. Wiz and Amber are engaged to be married.

    Unemployed NFL player Chad Johnson, 34, has a lot of free time on his hands these days. The Miami Dolphins fired the troubled wide receiver in August following his arrest for allegedly headbutting his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, 42.

    While Lozada is busy making the rounds of the talk show circuit telling her sob story to whoever will listen, Johnson continues to work out in the hopes that a team will take pity on him and give him another chance.

    Unemployed NFL player Terrell Owens and unemployed reality TV actress Jennifer Williams, formerly of Basketball Wives, were spotted out shopping together in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. Obviously these photos are staged since neither of these people are popping right now. They’re both broke, so the only reason they would be shopping together is if there is a reality show on the horizon for both of them. It’s interesting to note that Jennifer and her friend are holding hands which opens up a world of possibilities for a story line between the 3 of them.

    It seems rapper Lil Wayne believes the stories about former music exec Memphitz’s alleged violent tendencies. Memphitz, real name Mickey Wright, filed a defamation lawsuit today in Atlanta against his former artist (and former lover) K. Michelle and Viacom (VH1’s parent company).

    K. Michelle, who is a cast member of VH1’s popular reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, accused Memphitz of stealing her recording budget and assaulting her. But Memphitz vigorously denies those accusations.
