Joakim Noah is ejected from game 2 of the playoffs

The Miami HEAT held a cookout on their home court after hammering the Chicago Bulls 115-78 to even the second round series 1-1. Miami, led by a rejuvenated LeBron James, carved up the Chicago Bulls' defense like a side of beef, handing the Bulls their worst lopsided loss in Bulls franchise history.

The Heat also broke a franchise record for the widest margin of victory in playoffs history.

LeBron, who won his 4th MVP trophy last weekend, scored all of his 19 points in the first half. He spent the 2nd half guiding his teammates to victory with thrilling no-look passes.

2 weeks ago I told you that socialite Kim Kardashian canceled a revealing baby bump cover shoot for In Touch Weekly magazine. Now a little birdie whispers to me that Kim canceled the cover because In Touch refused to give her "creative control" over the final photo. Of course, in Kim's world, "creative control" means Photoshopping the cover beyond recognition.

And since In Touch refused to indulge Kim, she offered her baby bump cover to US Weekly, who gladly obliged her demands.

Michelle Obama

In an exclusive interview with NBC's TODAY, first lady Michelle Obama reacted to the shocking Cleveland, Ohio kidnapping case.

“My heart just... swells up with relief, because just imagine first losing a child and not knowing whether they're alive or dead or in harm's way,” Mrs. Obama said. “And to be holding out hope for a decade and to finally have those prayers answered is just probably the best Mother's Day gift… that these families will receive.

Mrs. Obama added: "We’re just grateful that they're safe. It is probably a parent's worst nightmare to lose a child in any way, shape or form. But I am just happy for these families that they found their daughters and that they're alive and safe.”

Gina DeJesus Amanda Berry Michelle knight

The Cleveland 911 dispatcher who took kidnap victim Amanda Berry's call on Monday evening may lose his/her job for the callous way the call was handled.

The unidentified dispatcher was cold and lacked empathy when Berry dialed 911 to report she had been kidnapped and held in a basement for 10 years by former Cleveland school bus driver Ariel Castro, 52.

Audio of the 911 call angered many Cleveland residents who demanded to know why the unsympathetic "call taker" didn't keep Berry on the phone until police arrived.

According to my west coast connect, Brown is totally over his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Rihanna. They never were really back together. Like most opportunists, Brown used Rihanna to gain sympathy from her fans. Rihanna, who is desperate for Love, fell for his boyish charms and allowed him to use her for his own personal and financial gain.

Beyonce Knowles attends the 2013 Met Gala solo

rap mogul Jay Z did not accompany wife Beyonce to the 2013 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC on Monday. He probably let her fly solo because she's spreading lies about being pregnant again. Beyonce, who many believe did not give birth to her daughter, attended the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" themed Costume Ball wearing an embellished gold and black Givenchy number with matching thigh high boots. I'm told that Beyonce wasn't happy because she was upstaged by her arch nemesis, Kim Kardashian, who wore a hideous Givenchy floral maternity duster.

    After years of being snubbed by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, Kim Kardashian finally got her coveted invite to the ritzy Met Gala Costume Ball -- and this is what she turned up in. A bloated and water-logged Kim made sure to steal the spotlight in a hideous Givenchy floral duster. Wintour's refusal to invite the narcissistic socialite to the Met Gala last year made headlines. Wintour, who is friends with West, declined to invite Kim because she considered Kardashian to be “the worst thing since socks with sandals!" So you'd think Kim would want to make a good impression on the fashion maven? The Met Gala was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday, May 6, in New York City.

    Three Ohio women who were snatched off the same Cleveland block about 10 years ago were found alive in the home of a Cleveland school bus driver on Monday.

    The driver, Ariel Castro, 52, was taken into custody Monday along with his 2 brothers. Castro kept the women hidden in a basement for 10 years, according to police. At least one of the women gave birth to a daughter, now 6, while in captivity.

    Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who rescued Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, said he was at McDonald's when he heard a woman screaming hysterically inside a nearby house.

    "This girl is kicking the door and screaming," he told local NBC affiliate WKYC-TV.

    Ramsey said the woman screamed, "Help me get out! I'm Amanda Berry... I've been missing for 10 years!" Ramsey said he believed the woman was involved in a domestic violence dispute.

    Berry was snatched at age 16 in 2003, as she left her job at McDonald's. DeJesus was 14 when she was taken while walking home from school in 2004. Knight was kidnapped in 2002.

    Ramsey and another man broke down the door so Berry could escape. "We had to kick open the bottom," Ramsey told WEWS-TV. "Lucky on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter."

    “I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms," Ramsey told the station. "Either she homeless or she's got problems. That's the only reason she'd run to a black man!"

    Medical Minute Edema in pregnancy

    On Saturday, pregnant socialite Kim Kardashian Instagram'ed a photo of her swollen feet caused by mild edema.

    Edema in pregnant women is a build up of fluids in the extremities (hands, arms, feet, legs and face). Pregnant women retain more water, especially in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester.

    Swelling in the feet can be caused by wearing constricting shoes and clothing; standing for long periods of time; consuming a diet high in salt (sodium) and caffeine. Eating a diet low in potassium.

    Prevention of edema in pregnancy includes avoid standing for long periods of time; wear comfortable and loose-fitting clothing (maternity clothes); wear support hose to reduce swelling in feet; eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water (at least 8-10 glasses a day).

    Notify your physician/OB/GYN if swelling in your arms, legs or face persist for more than 24 hours and doesn't improve with rest or elevating the affected part.

    Oprah interviews Jason Collins

    A week after NBA free agent Jason Collins announced his homosexuality in a much-ballyhooed Sports Illustrated cover story, another famed homosexual renounced his lifestyle. But the real story is how the 2 diverging announcements are being handled by the mainstream media.

    While the national news media gave Collins a hero's welcome, Antoine Dodson's renouncement of his homosexuality has barely registered a blip on the mainstream news radar.

    Dodson gained Internet fame after his colorful description of a home invader to a news reporter went viral on YouTube.com.

    Lil Wayne apology

    PepsiCo has dropped troubled rapper Lil Wayne just 2 days after his publicist wrote an "apology" letter to the family of 14-year-old civil rights icon Emmett Till.

    PepsiCo, which distributes Mountain Dew, said in a statement late Friday that Wayne's offensive comparison of Till to a violent sexual act on Future's “Karate Chop” remix did "not reflect the values of our brand."

    In the "apology" letter, the publicist wrote, "Moving forward, I will not use or reference Emmett Till or the Till family in my music, especially in an inappropriate manner.” and concluded with, "…my ultimate intention is to uplift rather than degrade our community."

    But Till's family dismissed the letter, saying it was a step short of an apology.

    Susannah Collins

    After caving to intense pressure from women's rights groups, the major sports networks began an experiment by hiring sexy women to announce major sports competitions from the sidelines. The experiment failed miserably due to two simple truths: no matter how sexy she is, a feminine voice is too distracting to men while they're watching testosterone-filled sports. The second simple truth is horny women can't control their desires around sports Gods like LeBron James.

    Today, Comcast SportsNet Chicago announced they were firing a female sports reporter who had a Freudian slip live on the air.

    DJs Traci and Babey Drew

    A loyal reader writes:

    Hey Sandra,
    I know you don't watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, but I was watching the new episode with my girls and queens and all of our gaydars went off when this new cast member DJ Baby Drew (Chis Brown DJ) came on TV. He is effeminate and has soft mannerisms like Drake, but better looking, with what looked like to me, color contacts. He is with another Atlanta DJ name Traci Steele, they have a child together. His role on the show is a 'player' that sleeps with groupies and is ocassionally financially dependent on, his child's mother, Traci Steele. I was wondering if you ever heard of him since he's supposed to be known in Atlanta as a 'celeb DJ'.
