Or does he not care because he's dating a pretty boy model who helps boost his low self-esteem? Also, Willy doesn't speak English very well, so how do they communicate?

    Deanna Nolan and Dorothea Sanchez-Nolan

    Last week the news broke about the arrest of former WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw who took a bat to her ex-girlfriend's car and fired a handgun into it.

    Holdsclaw isn't the only WNBA player to be arrested for assaulting or threatening her lesbian lover.

    Professional basketball player Deanna "Tweety" Nolan, 33, was arrested earlier this year for beating the air out of her wife and mother of her 2 children.

    Very little, if any, news coverage was given to the Deanna/Dorothea fisticuffs.

    According to MTV and other news outlets, things aren't going so well on her 777 Tour plane. Rihanna invited 200 of her biggest Stans, bloggers and media people to accompany her on her 7-city world tour to promote her new album.

    Without telling anyone, Rihanna decided to charter a second private jet for herself and a privileged few -- leading to rumblings about "3rd world conditions" on board the 777 tour plane, where passengers have gone days without adequate food and drinks.

    Things got so bad on board the tour plane that a hungry Stan ripped off his clothes and streaked through the plane naked. Bedlam ensued which forced the Def Jam staff to leave the comfort of their 1st class section and demand that everyone riding in coach pipe down.

The Jasmine Brand reports that Diaz confirmed her new gig during a call into Power 105's Breakfast Club on Monday. Diaz's regular ET segments will air on Mondays.

    McKayla Maroney and President Obama

    A photo of President Obama mimicking Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney's not impressed facial expression went viral on the Internet over the weekend. The White House tweeted the photo that was taken during a visit by Maroney and the "Fierce Five" Olympic gymnasts team.

    Maroney was surprised that Obama asked about her expression of disgust at winning a silver medal during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

    "He was the one who brought it up," Maroney told The Associated Press. "We were about to leave and he said, `I want to talk to you one second about the face.' He said, `I pretty much do that face at least once a day."'

    Maroney tweeted about making "the face" at the White House. "Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President."

    Kevin Clash Elmo Sheldon Stephens

    Just as we thought: Kevin Clash, the man behind the voice of Sesame Street's iconic puppet Elmo, bought his accuser's silence for $125K, TMZ reports. In addition to cutting a phat check, Clash and his attorneys demanded a retraction of public statements that his accuser Sheldon Stephens made about having underage sex with the puppeteer.

    In a prelude to a lawsuit, Stephens claimed he had sexual relations with Clash, 52, when he was only 16.

    Multiple sources tell TMZ that Clash and his attorneys met with Stephens and his legal team to hand over the check -- and to hash out an agreement that including only one stipulation:

    Stephens agrees that immediately upon execution of this Agreement, his counsel, Andreozzi & Associates, P.C., shall release the [following] statement ... 'He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.'"

    Willy Cartier

    According to my West coast connect, Willy isn't after Frank's cash; he has money of his own. Willy keeps a condo in Soho, New York and an apartment in Paris, France.

    Frank Ocean and Willy Cartier

    My West coast connection sent in these pics of Frank Ocean and his rumored boyfriend, model Willy Carter. It figures that Ocean would prefer the LSLH pretty boy type.

    She notes that Frank Ocean posted a photo on his instagram page of Willy's delicate hands and rings. She believes the photo -- taken while the men were at breakfast -- reflects the fact that they are dating "or something to that effect." I agree. What man Instagrams a photo of another man's hands?

    Keyshia Cole

    R&B Diva Keyshia Cole recently sat down with Rolling Out magazine for an in-depth interview. She discussed her upcoming album, Woman to Woman, her marriage to NBA star Daniel "Boobie" Gibson, and her relationship with her mother and sisters.

    Keyshia, who is a friend of the blog, recalls meeting her future husband for the first time: "I thought he was beautiful the first time we met. We had been talking for months before we physically met each other," she said:

    She added: "We had ups and downs in our relationship, and we grew from it. When you make a commitment to marriage, you have to be serious about it. You can love the person you are with, but you have to be sure that you’re ready to make that commitment."

    Just a few months ago, Rocsi Diaz thought she was heading to the alter with one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors: Eddie Murphy. But Eddie famously kicked her to the curb after she started consulting with wedding planners before he had even proposed.

    Most women would've crawled into a hole and died from the embarrassment -- or at least gained 300 pounds so they wouldn't be recognized in public. But not Rocsi Diaz. Unlike most women who habitually date the wrong type of men, Rocsi has no shame.

    Photos of Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova are causing hysteria on social networking websites. That's because the 21-year-old beauty has transformed herself into a living breathing Barbie doll.

    Mariah Carey

    Songbird Mariah Carey is settled into motherhood after giving birth to twins Monroe and Moroccan a year ago. Carey, 42, spoils her overindulged cuties by making sure they have only the best that money can buy. Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon lavish luxuries on their children such as designer baby shoes, imported Italian crib linens and bubble baths using only bottled water, according to Star magazine.

    Mariah spends $6000 monthly on rich lotion to prevent diaper rash. But on those rare occasions when her toddlers do have diaper rash, Mariah spares no expense on high-priced moisturizer diaper creams imported from Italy.

    As I told you earlier this week, a California judge denied Halle Berry's requests to move with daughter Nahla Aubry, 4, to Paris, France where her boyfriend, actor Olivier Martinez, maintains a home. Berry, 46, and her baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, 35, are battling for custody of little Nahla. The couple were spotted taking Nahla to a movie after Halle picked her up at school in Los Angeles on Thursday.

  • I know you hate Kim Kardashian with a passion but these photos are for a worthy cause. Kardashian, 31, attended the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt Martin Gardner in Greenville, NC on Thursday. Sgt Gardner, who is on the ball's planning committee, invited Kim months ago and she accepted. But like most celebrities who personally thank the marines by dancing with them, Kim was only there for the photo ops -- and a quick bite to eat. After taking her photos, and hobnobbing with a few marines at dinner, she dashed out of a side door to a waiting limo. Kim wore a stunning floor length Roland Mouret red dress to the ball. You don't have to be a body language expert to tell she looked very uncomfortable in the photos. If she leaned away from him any further she would break her neck. Then again, she always looks uncomfortable in her own skin.
