Queen Latifah and Paula Patton

Media mogul Queen Latifah and her intimate friend, actress Paula Patton attended the 15th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball held at a private residence in Mandeville Canyon, an upscale hamlet in the prestigious Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. King La and Paula refused to take any photos together, even though they were in the same house. Tongues were wagging when Latifah and Paula showed up at the same party. But you don't have to believe me.

By the way, Queen Latifah will be honored at VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS event to honor trailblazing ladies of Hip Hop. Latifah is the first legendary artist to be honored at the VH1 VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS event.

It's just a coincidence that Latifah will also serve as executive producer of the upcoming event through Flavor Unit. Latifah worked closely with VH1 on other scripted shows such as the one-hour special DEAR MAMA earlier this year. So it's only fitting that VH1 honor her for all her hard work.

The show will be telecast on Monday, July 11 at 9 p.m. live from New York.

Vanna White

Vanna White, of Wheel of Fortune fame, also attended the 15th annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball with other well-heeled invited guests. She's still a sex pot at 59, isn't she?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Its old NaN.....

    Vanna White feared she was fighting to save her teenage son from being brainwashed by a Hare Krishna monk who was after her money, but now it transpires that the pair are exploring a gay relationship together.

    The Wheel of Fortune star's son Nicholas, who likes to be called Nikko, has been living with Krishna devotee Jaycee Akinsanya, 34, while both attend the University of Arizona.

    Now 19-year-old Nikko has revealed that he's in a serious relationship with the monk from Liberia who is twice his age.

    I was there tryna drop Dub11 off with her folks. It was supposed to be a mini turnaround trip. Her people were SEVEN hours late. Her daddy showed up tryna give me some dick I didnt want nor solicit. Me and Dub21 were trying to go shopping but me, her, my homegirl and her crew (her son and her dude and their squad) got drunk by accident and had an impromptu house party. Had to Uber me and Dub21 back to the hotel. It was quite the damn weekend.

Didnt mean he was invited to stay tho. FOMF.

  • melissaisasnob

    Remember when Queen Latifah played a character on Fresh Prince who wanted to mess with Will? Will was such a jerk. I think we were to believe she was gross because she was big (of course she was technically sexually harassing him too).

    When Robin Thicke was trying to woo Paula back some woman gave an interview saying she did threesomes with them but when Paula found out Robin had been seeing her on the side that's when she left and divorced him. Boy, that must've really p'd her off!!! I have yet to see a couple who swings or brings in 3d parties into their marriages last.

    Off topic

    but can someone give some advice. My friend from my job and I were suppose to go and take a test today for a better job. When been talking about it everyday. Now all of a sudden when I texted her yesterday she never texted me back and I she didn't pick up. I called her brother and he said he told her to call me back. Should I just forget about keeping texting her and take the test on my own?

    Thanks!

  • Renee Bee

    Yes ma'am, please take the test. You are the only one in control of your career track. The opportunity may not present itself again. You tried to get in touch with her several times. So she can't be mad with you and if she is -- too bad too sad. Good luck, Hun. You got bills to pay and a brighter future ahead.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Thanks so much i needed this and that's exactly what I'm about to do. Cus she still didn't pick up.

  • LaGrl562

    Sorry I can finally call BS on one of these post. I was at the Butterfly Ball Saturday and spent (very little) some time with Paula Patton. I saw both arrive and The queen came by herself with her family & business partner Shakim and his wife Lisa (who is gorg) in tow. Paula showed up afterwards with her publicist looking really cute. They did not sit together and spent very little time together. Now what I did witness was a emotional Paula presenting her longtime friend" (her words not mine) with a very heartfelt award she was reduced to tears. The Queen was just that she came and she showed out. Her speech was so nice and she looked great. They both were gracious and pleasant to be around I was really surprised an how well they received everyone.Now I also met Russell Simmons................................that's a horse of a different color.
