While most Super Bowl fans paid upwards of $2,500 per ticket to watch Super Bowl XLV in the nosebleed section of the new $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Vivica Fox and her fiance Slimm of Plush Blue Entertainment rubbed elbows with the fabulously wealthy in Jerry Jones' Owner's Box.

The cute couple partied it up with former President George Bush and Laura Bush, former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, actor Harrison Ford, rocker Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, actor/comedian Jamie Foxx, actor Ashton Kutcher, Marilyn Rogers (heiress to the Mary Kay cosmetics fortune), former boxing champs Evander Holyfield and Sugar Ray Leonard, actress Regina King, rapper Drake and more!

Slimm, 25, took to his Twitter page to tweet how proud he was to be the only nightclub promoter invited up to the owner's box. That's a far cry from his humble beginnings growing up as a boy in Atlanta. And it's a good look for Plush Blue Entertainment!

Slimm tweeted that out of all the celebrities he met last night, former president Bush was the nicest. He also tweeted that he had taken back all the mean things he ever said about Bush after meeting him in person.

Musician Kanye West, 33, attended the Giuseppe Zanotti Design Beverly Hills Store Opening cocktail reception yesterday in Beverly Hills. Mr. West looked cool as a cucumber rocking a pair of vintage Alitalia Sport 550 Sunglasses. Kanye is said to be so upset that Nicki Minaj surpassed him in record sales that he immediately went back into the studio to try and top her. His next album is due out this Summer. Good luck to him.

LaLa Vasquez, 31, and singer Kelly Rowland, 29, were spotted bowling for charity dollars at the Lucky Strike Lanes on February 3 in Lakewood, Colorado.

Something about Kelly's hair disturbs my soul in this picture. Is that a patch of her hair missing on the side?

It's the weekend of the Super Bowl in Dallas, Texas, which means every B, C, and D-list celebrity is in town hoping to be seen. The few remaining publicists in the biz probably told their clients to get to Dallas any way they could -- even if they have to ski there -- because there are no real stars in town due to the heavy snowfall and canceled flights. You know it's a celebration of irrelevancy when has-been rapper Yung Berg shows up at your event.


Shameless hussy Evelyn Lozada, 41, pushed up against NFL player Chad Johnson, 33, of the Cincinnati Bengals at the PepsiCo Super Bowl Weekend Kickoff Party last night featuring Lenny Kravitz and DJ Pauly D at Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams, 29, looks amazing considering all the rumors we've been hearing about her health lately. It looks like she's picked up a little weight since we last saw her. Serena says the cast will be off her foot next month and she'll be playing in a tournament. It will be good to see her back on the court if she really does play which we doubt.

I'm so tired of seeing Willow Smith all over the blogs. Okay, the 10-year-old had a cute, catchy single with "Whip My Hair" last year. But now she's doing magazine covers. music videos and movies -- all while admitting she can't multiply or subtract.

In the latest issue of Teen Vogue magazine, on stands now, Willow says, “I used to go on tour with my mom and dad and see what they were doing, and I’d tell them, ‘Oh, I wanna do that, I wanna do that."

How many kids aspire to grow up and be whatever their mommy and daddy does for a living? Most adults encourage their offspring to get an education first. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are raising their kids backwards!

Every time Willow gives an interview there's a blizzard of red flags indicating future problems for the child prodigy. Here's an example of Willow's parents pushing the child towards failure:

"Whenever I don’t feel like working, they say, ‘You don’t want that career? You have to work hard. They think I should keep working harder and harder.”

Hello? She's only 10!! This is what happens when narcissists are allowed to raise children. Luckily, Tron's mother saved him from a similar fate.



Clothing giant Kenneth Cole tweeted this today on his Twitter page in an effort to promote his Spring 2011 clothing line. It worked. Understandably, his 9,000 followers, and the rest of the blogosphere, are in an uproar.

As I typed this post, Mr. Cole removed the insensitive tweet. He tweeted this moments ago, "I have removed this morning’s tweet. Please visit this link to see my apology."

Beyonce stepped out in New York today dressed in a sexy cropped leather jacket and open blouse ensemble before attending a business meeting at Manhattan hotel in New York City.

Beyonce, who, at 30, realizes her career is fading fast, is concentrating on expanding her growing business empire, which includes her new perfume. "I created Heat Rush to bring the feeling of warmth and sensuality to every woman who wears it," she wrote in a statement. "It's feminine and sexy, fresh and beautiful" she said of the fragrance that "empowers" her.

She added: "I wanted this to be something that made you feel like you could conquer anything, and take over the world.

"Strength was something important, because a lot of my songs I write for my women, to empower them. When I spray it I feel feminine, I feel like a woman. I can leave a lasting impression."

Canadian rapper and actor Drake, 24, attended the premiere of his friend Justin Beiber's documentary film Never Say Never in their native Toronto, Canada yesterday. According to Upscale Hype, Drake was dressed in his special edition October’s Very Own x Canada Goose Chilliwack jacket ($900) layered over a grey YMCMB sweatsuit and accessorized with a pair of Air Jordan white/cement retro 3 sneakers, which retail for $150. Drake will be in town tomorrow (Feb. 3) to host Thursday Nights at the Gold Room, the party event where the Industry Elite gather to mingle and network in a groupie-free environment. Call Brick @ (678) 478-0530 to reserve your VIP booth. They're going quickly!

Drake's manager Cortez Bryant, left, is wearing the much-hyped Nike Air Jordan Retro 11 “Cool Grey” sneakers ($175), which caused quite a commotion at retail stores when the shoes were released just in time for Christmas last year.

Fading singer Beyonce, 29, and struggling professional beard, Amber Rose, 27, were spotted over the weekend bundled up against the brutal arctic temperatures in New York City and Baltimore respectively. Beyonce wore bright red lip gloss and looked startled as the flash bulbs popped around her. Amber wore a large Yukon trapper fur hat and an oversized Chanel quilted bag.

Amber is having trouble finding a rapid replacement for Kanye West, who unwittingly fell for her charms and bright lights 2 years ago. Those lights have faded for Amber now, and even the most jaded attention whore celeb (read: Amar'e Stoudemire) doesn't want to be associated with a known bisexual stripper-turned-beard.

On the other hand, it's been awhile since the paparazzi even cared about Bey, who got lost in the shuffle when Nicki Minaj, 28, and Rihanna, 22, rocketed to the top of the pack late last year with the release of their platinum albums. Even in polar beer weather, both Bey and Amber still know how to get attention. Will Beyonce ever regain her throne?

Former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland caused a near-riot when she stepped out of the Westbury hotel in London on her way to attend the MTV Staying Alive Fundraising event last night. As you know, 28-year-old Kelly is a bigger Superstar in London than her former band mate Beyonce Knowles. Every move Kelly makes is faithfully documented by adoring paparazzi and fans who are tired of Bey's diva antics. Good for K-Row!

Rev Run's daughter Angela Simmons, right, also attended the event. But no one recognized her without a bikini on. j/k. I'm still patiently waiting for Allen over at UpscaleHype.com to identify the maker of Kelly Rowland's hawt trench coat. I need that coat in my life.

Actress Vivica A. Fox and her fiance, local club promoter Slimm, partied with 'The Game' star Meagan Good and her lover at Gold Room last night in Atlanta. The Gold Room is always poppin' on Thursday nights. It's where the industry elite mingle and network groupie free.

Vivica, 46, is always stylish and trendy when she steps out with her man. Last night she teetered on 6-inch Christian Louboutin glittery Pigalle pumps, which retail for $1,020, while her man wore Prada. Only a real woman can rock 6-inch pumps without stumbling. Don't try this at home, kids.

Troubled singer chris brown, 21, was spotted out & about at The Grove in LA last night accompanied by a couple of LSLH chicks. brown wore his favored accessory of the moment: his TI$A cognac MCM backpack.

The late Michael Jackson's oldest brother Jackie Jackson, 59, accompanied Michael's adopted son Prince Michael, who turns 14 in February, to watch the LA Lakers play the Utah Jazz at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles yesterday. The Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz by the final score of 120-91. I guess Prince is at that awkward stage that we discussing in my Medical Minute post on Body Image Disturbance?

Troubled singer chris brown, 21, was spotted outside his New York hotel wearing a trendy MCM cognac TI$A backpack. I told you about the resurgence of this popular backpack late last year when I noticed several celebs wearing one.

MCM was all the rage back when I was in high school, but the brand fizzled out in the late 80s. I called the NY MCM flagship store yesterday and they confirmed that this backpack is sold out everywhere. Had you acted quickly when I first told you, this backpack could have been yours for a mere $450. Luckily, I got mine before the stampede.

I thought only little kids still wore Timberland boots?

According to UpscaleHype:

Jay-Z, minority owner of the New Jersey Nets was spotted sitting courtside as his Nets hosted the Utah Jazz last night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Jay-Z dressed real casual rocked a Balmain distressed camo hoodie (approx. $694) and a pair of black nubuck Timberland boots ($155). What do you think of his courtside look?

Rihanna? Nope, it's 'X Factor' star Cher Lloyd shopping for the third time this week in the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills. Cher was dressed in her trademark red Dr Martens boots, gray jogging pants and over-sized chrome chain jewelry. Isn't she fly? Maybe Jay Z knew what he was doing after all when he signed the fashionable 17-year-old singer to his Roc Nation label.

Music mogul Sean Combs, 42, Dawn Richard, 27, and Kalenna Harper, 28, of Dirty Money were spotted leaving BBC Live Lounge studios this morning after performing their new single "Coming Home" off their debut CD, Last Train To Paris. Puffy performed despite feeling ill with the flu. They had a massive entourage and a fleet of seven Mercedes Benz to shuttle them around London.

I'll take one Kalenna with whipped cream and a cherry on top to go, please.

Rapper Nikki Minaj, 26, looked like she was heading to an audition of 'Send in the Clowns' as she greeted fans outside the Dorchester hotel in London early this morning. The whiny voice rapper will perform 2 "surprise" gigs in London later tonight. I don't know how much of a surprise the gigs will be since she's tweeting every move she makes over there. In other news, pop star Jessie J wants Nicki to jump on the remix of her hit single "Do It Like a Dude". The BBC Sound Poll winner told Rap-Up.com, "I’m a huge fan of hers. I’m just gonna maybe bug her at the Grammys like, ‘Hi, we have the same hair.’ You never know. I’m just gonna keep an open mind and see what happens."

Meanwhile, across the pond, our girl Rihanna looked stunning in a frizzy red afro wig as she arrived at Las Palmas Nightclub in Hollywood last night. The soon-to-be 23-year-old dazzled her fans in a short white frock as she climbed out of her SUV limo.

Earlier that evening, RiRi tweeted a pic from the set of her latest video for "S&M", saying, “I’m great! Had a fantastic weekend shooting my best/favorite video EVER!!!” “I got some behind the scenes S&M flix for u #RihannaNavy I’ll give em to u little by little until the vid drops.”

Last night, 'Basketball Wives' cast member Jennifer Williams tweeted that Eddie Murphy's daughter Bria was named the new face of Soft Sheen Carson's Dark and Lovely products (her exact title is Global Brand Ambassador).

Is it just me or has Bria bleached her skin until she's barely recognizable? Bria hardly seems worthy of the title of Dark and Lovely Brand Ambassador when she's clearly bleaching her brown skin.

Bria celebrated the announcement with her sister Shayne, 16, and her divorced parents, Eddie and Nicole Murphy, at the Juliet Supper club in NYC last night.

Also attending the event, in addition to Williams, were former model Tyson Beckford and actress Nia Long.

LisaRaye's beautiful daughter, Kai Morae, 23, is Apple Bottom's first plus-size model. As I reported earlier, the photos were shot by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks.

The shoot was done in Los Angeles and will be featured in an upcoming episode of 'LisaRaye The Real McCoy' on TVONE.

The images feature fashions from Nelly's Apple Bottom's Spring 2011 Collection. Apple Bottoms started out in 2003 as a denim label designed specifically to fit the natural curves of African American women.

Now the company has branched into a full lifestyle brand featuring Apparel, Footwear, Swimwear, Jewelry, Designer Eyewear, Fragrance and Home Goods.

What do you think of Kai's photos? (Click images to enlarge) I hear that Kai is upset that they Photoshopped her photos to make her look older and to render her subtle curves even larger than they really are in real life.

Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson, 28, showed 'em why she's considered one of the most beautiful woman in R&B! It doesn't matter if you can't carry a note when you look as gorgeous as she does! Keri attended the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in LA yesterday wearing a little black frock that accentuated her toned thighs.

She accessorized the simple elegance of the frock with a pair of custom lace platform heels intricately detailed with pearls. We LOVE them! Even her BFF La La Vazquez had to bow down to Keri last night. Keri reads Sandrarose.com, so let her know what you think about her look!

Multimedia TV personality Alani "La La" Vazquez, 31, glowed radiantly at the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in LA last night. La La wowed the crowd with a floor length white frock accessorized with her sparkling wedding rock and her hair rolled up tightly in a bun. We love the look!

LaLa also attended the W Magazine Golden Globe Awards party in West Hollywood last night. Isn't she gorgeous?! La La makes looking glamorous so easy!

Just when we were beginning to wonder what ever happened to former Danity Kane member D. Woods, she pops out of the woodwork with hawt new photos to promote her mixtape entitled, Lady in the Streets.

The mixtape is hosted by Atlanta's own DJ Trauma for WoodGrane Entertainment. You can download it here.

According to Janelle Langford of Urban Suite PR, Woods, 26, was shot by fashion photographer Laretta Houston. The former Danity Kane bad girl is embracing a new look and sound with the release of her mixtape.

Her makeup was done by makeup artist socialite, Mimi J.


D. Woods is ready for her close up!

R&B crooner Usher, 32, was spotted outside his hotel in Berlin, Germany where he's playing the final leg of his OMG World tour. Usher, who is always laced in the latest styles, wore a nice fur-lined trench coat made by Opening Ceremony.

According to UpscaleHype:

Usher who is currently in Germany for the last leg of his OMG Tour, was seen arriving to his hotel in Berlin wearing an Opening Ceremony MO08 funnel neck trench coat ($1,380). This khaki and grey trench features a double breasted button front with fur lining the interior and the collar.

Pop singer Rihanna and her BFF/personal assistant Melissa Forde were spotted sitting courtside at the Miami Heat vs LA Clippers game at the Staples Center yesterday. RiRi watched the Clippers demolish the Heat 111-105 during a game where the Clippers led by as many as 20 points.

Rihanna was mobbed by her adoring fans waiting outside the Staples Center after the game. Beyonce must be somewhere scratching her lacefront wondering how to derail Rihanna's surging career. In addition to snagging 2 NAACP Image Award nods for Outstanding Female Artist and Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration (with Eminem), Rihanna also landed her first cover of American Vogue magazine!

“Just wrapped my first American Vogue cover shoot with Annie Leibovitz…Rah! #SEXY,” she tweeted last night. Rihanna becomes the third black female artist to be featured on the cover of Vogue (behind Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson).

RiRi was set for the cover of Vogue in 2009 but the cover was scrapped after nude pics surfaced of Rihanna in a hotel room with then-boyfriend, chris brown.

Rapper Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, 33, and his shapely med school girlfriend, Eudoxie, attended the "No Strings Attached" Los Angeles Premiere at Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles yesterday. That Luda must be a very secure man.

Actress Natalie Portman, 29, and actor Chris Bridges posed at the "No Strings Attached" Los Angeles Premiere. Also attending the premiere were Demi Moore, 48, and her hubby Ashton Kutcher, 32, among others.

Singer Christina Milian, 29, and some friends were spotted having lunch at Shu Sushi House in Bel Air, CA on Saturday. Her friends are so trendy. I LOVE that patent leather Louis Vuitton handbag. The Louis flagship store at Lenox Square Mall carries the latest version of that bag in dark blue for $2,200.

It's must be great having friends who can afford nice things. Even if you don't have, you can live vicariously through them.

Those of you who guessed Ciara's snow boots were made by Christian Louboutin were correct:

From UpscaleHype:

Ciara was spotted courtside watching the Lakers vs. Knicks game in LA wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin Toundra Fur Boots ($2,095). These coyote fur trimmed boots feature two leather belt straps, with gold toned buckle closures, wood optic platform heels, and the Louboutin signature red bottom. Do you like her look?

Here's just a taste of the abundantly appreciative emails I receive on an hourly basis. You think your life is hard? Try reading my emails for 8 hours.

femlegndz@aol.com writes:

You love Ciara's UGG Snow boots huh? She is pretty damn on trend, shame you aren't. Those are Christian Louboutin's, not UGGs. Surely you realize UGG doesn't make red bottomed stiletto heels. Well then, evidently you don't.

The following email was sent in by an angry, obsessed Brandy Stan named Anthony Harrell (probably not his real name):

I know brandy personally and she IS NOT pregnant. Before u post dumb shit maybe u should get your facts together u ignorant cunt. All u do is talk negative about folks. Your probably an ugly unhappy bitch that gets no dick.

This post is for my friend, Elsa Belai (inside joke)

Leighton Meester, otherwise known as Blair Waldorf on the wildly popular TV series Gossip Girls, showed off her trendy forward fashion sense during filming of an episode of the show on Madison Avenue in NYC today.

The singer/actress is the face of fashion houses Missoni and Vera Wang. And like Rihanna, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and countless other celebrities, Leighton also has a perfume line coming out.

I'm not sure if that's Missoni she's wearing. But she looks hawt! When you're a rich b*tch like Blair Waldorf, the only thing you carry while shopping is your sense of style and your chic red quilted leather Chanel bag ($4,000) across your arm -- while your hired help totes your shopping bags.

There are some women who would die to have Blair's lifestyle, but in reality, having an endless supply of cash is no fun. Especially when people who wouldn't normally give you a second look, come crawling out of the woodwork.

The new season of Gossip Girl returns on January 24 at 9/8c on The CW.

Singer Ciara and actor Denzel Washington had a nice talk at halftime of the Knicks vs Lakers game yesterday. We LOVE Ciara's UGGs snow boots. She is so trendy. The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the New York Knicks by the final score of 109-87 at Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles. R&B singer Monica, who lives with her man, Lakers guard Shannon Brown in LA, skipped the game yesterday because both her man and her 3-year-old son, Melo, weren't feeling well.

Director Spike Lee and Lindsay Lohan struck up a conversation before the Knicks vs Lakers game in LA yesterday. Lindsay and her ex-lover DJ Samantha Ronson cleared up their differences and have agreed to be cordial to each other after Sam became irate when she found out that LiLo was moving in next door to her in Venice, CA.
