Blue Ivy

Some observers are questioning the gender identity of Beyonce and Jay Z's 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Little BIC is being compared to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's biological daughter, Shiloh, 6, whose gender identity issues were well-covered by the tabloid media.

Loyal reader M. Bailey is among those who wonders why Beyonce only dresses BIC like a boy. IS it because Beyonce and Jay Z secretly hoped for a boy?

Kordell and Porscha Stewart

This should come as no surprise to my loyal readers.

An inside source tells Black Media Scoop that Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Porsha and Kordell Stewart cooked up their fake divorce drama after realizing they would be axed from the show. Only in reality TV can a man have an "estranged wife" who still shares his bed.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West In Paris

It's beginning to dawn on most bloggers that Kim Kadashian's relationship with music producer Kanye West may be fake, but she refuses to let the blogs win.

    It seems that former NBA player Jason Collins lived a down low lifestyle before he revealed his bisexuality to the world via a Sports Illustrated cover story.

    Collins is officially a NBA free agent, meaning he is not an active professional basketball player until he signed by a NBA team next season. But the media won't let that little detail keep them from hyping Collins's confession as "heroic" or history-making.

    According to gossip website TMZ.com, Collins' ex-fiancee, Carolyn Moos, had no idea the man she was engaged to for 8 years -- and presumably slept with -- was gay.

    Moos tells TMZ she only found out Collins was gay last weekend -- after he shot the cover for Sports Illustrated.

    Chris Brown

    Loyal reader Bird informed me that troubled singer Chris Brown released a new song this morning, titled "I Can't Win", in which he laments about being with a girl who's in love with a bottle. I'm not one to put much stock in song lyrics, but in this case, I wonder who he's talking about?

      Why you angry all the time?
      Why you don't wanna ride for me?
      Girl we used to make love
      When you called I would follow
      Now the only thing you love is a bottle

    Listen to the song and read the lyrics after the break.

    Rapper Flo Rida took a dip in the warm waters off South Beach, Florida with a female friend on Monday. The 33-year-old ladies man is best known for his #1 hit song "Low", featuring T-Pain, which sat atop the charts for 10 weeks in 2008. Though 5 songs off his fourth studio album, titled Wild Ones (July 2012), charted in the Top 10 on Billboard, the album has yet to go gold.

    Tamar Braxton

    Pregnant reality star and singer Tamar Braxton is considering allowing a reality TV camera inside the labor room when she delivers her newborn son for an upcoming episode of 'Tamar and Vince'.

    Braxton confirmed reports that she underwent in vitro fertilization after numerous failed attempts by her and husband Vince Herbert to get pregnant.

    In an interview with Hip Hollywood, Braxton said, “I think we’re going to let them in as much as we can. You don’t want to bring your viewer all the way to the point where you went through In vitro, then it didn’t happen like that and it happened naturally. I just think it’s a story to tell and not to tell the whole story is kind of unfair. But you won’t be looking in my purse! My purse is off limits. I don’t even wanna see inside my purse!”

    Elle Duncan

    Former V-103 jock Elle Duncan was arrested early Sunday and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

    Police say that Duncan, an 11 Alive traffic reporter, threw back one too many drinks after leaving a Hawks playoff game. Apparently, Duncan didn't learn anything from former anchor woman Amanda Davis, who is awaiting trial on a November 2012 DUI charge. Davis, 56, was forced to retire after 26 years at Fox 5.

    Kelly Rowland

    Singer Kelly Rowland stretched her legs as she lounged on Miami beach in Florida over the weekend. Rowland, who is rarely seen alone, relaxed on the beach by herself until a friend came along and gave her a peck on the lips. I don't think Rowland's longtime boyfriend/manager Tim Weatherspoon has anything to worry about though.

    Jason Collins Boston Celtics gay NBA player

    While the sports world buzzed about gay NFL players, a NBA player was planning to take his closet door off its hinges.

    Jason Collins, center for the Boston Celtics, wrote a coming out letter exclusively for the May 6, 2013, issue of Sports Illustrated magazine.

    I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport," he writes. "But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, "I'm different." If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand."

    Collins is obviously implying that there were other gay NBA players in the closet with him.

    Kelly Rowland

    R&B beauty Kelly Rowland often goes without makeup, which explains why her skin has that natural, healthy glow.

    "I started wearing makeup at 14 for Destiny's Child," Rowland tells People magazine. "I remember the first time I saw my lashes with mascara on them – it was my favorite thing. For me, makeup reminds me of work. Without it, I feel natural and untouched."

    Rowland's album, Talk a Good Game, is set for release in June.

    Manti Te'o

    Not one NFL team showed interest in former Notre Dame star Manti Te'o in the 1st round of Thursday's 2013 NFL draft.

    NFL scouts weary of Te'o's distracting presence in the NFL locker room declined to draft the former Heisman candidate who had a terrible showing in the NFL Combines in February.

    If you recall, Te’o made headlines for mourning a dead girlfriend who didn't exist.

    A male friend later stepped forward to say he pretended to be Te'o's dead girlfriend for 3 years because he was in love with him. This led to rampant speculation that Te'o himself was gay.

    West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith also wasn't chosen in the 1st round -- probably for the same reason that Te'o was passed over.

    The Rock in recovery room following hernia surgery

    It's difficult for a macho man like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to admit that he suffered a hernia tear from lifting weights. So he's floating the story that he suffered 3 hernias from wrestling. The 40-year-old former wrestler-turned-action hero actor underwent emergency hernia surgery earlier this week.

    Johnson tweeted the above photo of himself wearing a Superman t-shirt in the recovery room after the surgery. His left arm looks strangely distorted, as if an IV tube may have been Photoshopped out of the picture. Image is everything to these guys.

    Kim Kardashian

    Pregnant reality star Kim Kardashian waddled past a baby room in the Greece airport as she arrived with her mother and sister to film an episode of 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' on Thursday (April 25). The reality star had to ride on a pubic transport bus as she entered the main terminal. Not as well known in Greece, Kardashian, Kourtney and Kris Jenner were forced to ride a public transport bus and carry their own luggage like common folk. On Thursday, Kardashian bid adieu to her sperm donor, Kanye West, who flew back to France after spending 2 days shooting photo ops with her in an attempt to squash rumors about their fake relationship.

    He followed those antics up by leaving an insulting message in the visitor's log at Holocaust victim Anne Frank's memorial center. Now comes word that Swedish police found pot and a stun gun on Bieber's tour bus on Wednesday. His 15 minutes aren't up yet?

    Boston Bomber Suspect was Unarmed

    According to the Huffington Post, two U.S. officials confirmed to the Associated Press that 19-year-old Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed when he was found hiding in a boat on Friday, April 19. No gun was found in the boat, according to the AP.

    This contradicts the blatant lies told by Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, who said his officers and SWAT team members "exchanged gunfire" with the suspect. Davis' exact words were:

    “Over the course of the next hour or so we exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was inside the boat, and ultimately the hostage rescue team of the F.B.I. made an entry into the boat and removed the suspect, who was still alive."

    He was wrong on both counts; there was no gunfire exchanged and the FBI did not enter the boat or remove the suspect.

    A photo taken by a CBS cameraman during the standoff clearly shows Tsarnaev exiting the boat under his own power.

    Amanda Davis Arrest Despite a petition calling for her termination, Fox 5 plans to put news anchor Amanda Davis back on the air at 10 p.m. Thursday to give a "special statement" about her most recent DUI arrest.

    According to Rodney Ho of the AJC, Davis, 56, has not been on the air since November 11 when she was involved in a wrong-way crash.

    Davis has declined all interview requests since November, according to Ho. There is speculation that she may be announcing her retirement from Fox 5.

    The former beat reporter has been with WAGA-TV since 1986 when it was a CBS affiliate.

    Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue around 12:20 a.m. November 11, when she crashed head on into a southbound vehicle.

    The other driver was taken to Grady hospital with minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained front end damage. Davis was charged with DUI, failure to maintain her lane and reckless driving. It was Davis' 2nd DUI arrest.
