Robert Griffin III

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III took a swift kick to the groin area during last night’s Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers at FedEx Field.

As women we will never experience the excruciating pain that can drop a grown man and leave him writhing in agony on the floor. But thanks to this GIF from sports gossip blog Terez Owens, we have some idea of what it must be like.

Michael Jackson Conrad Murray

The Internet is buzzing about an interview given by Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s disgraced ex-personal physician.

The 60-year-old heart surgeon was released from a California prison 3 weeks ago. He immediately began giving interviews — in exchange for substantial sums of cash because he’s broke.

Pregnant Nia Long looking happy in a striped maxi dress

It looks like the Dopamine has faded for actress Nia Long and San Antonio Spurs Assistant Coach Ime Udoka. Loyal reader Nikke Brown writes: “Funny, they didn’t sound broken up in any of her press interviews for The Best Man Holiday…”

And in a previous interview, Nia made it clear she wasn’t interested in a man putting a ring on it.

“Marriage is not a priority for me. I’m not saying I’ll never do it; It’s just not where we are as a family,” the mother of two revealed in the August issue of Essence.

Not So Blind Item

The following are not my words. Please address all inquiries and gripes to the original source.

From Illseed:

I cannot say what’s up with this person so it is definitely a blind item. But, there is a 90’s rapper on the comeback trail and he’s doing crack in front of people! The rapper is supposedly coming up again, but is presently doing club dates solo since he needs to feed his kids. But, he also has to fuel a drug habit that he’s been able to hide in recent years. Rumor has it the rapper did his crack right before he took to the stage for people to see. Sad!

By the way, this is not about DMX.

Babyface and Oprah

If you are a Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds fan, you may recall the gossip and innuendoes swirling around the unlikely marriage between the singer/songwriter and Tracey Edmonds, a video model who set Babyface’s loins aflame when they met on the set of his music video “Whip Appeal”.

The couple quickly became parents to sons Brandon and Dylan. But their marriage soon crumbled and Tracey filed for divorce in 2005.

Now, 23 years after their fateful meeting, Babyface, 54, admits he was never really in love with Tracey, 46.
