La La Anthony's lesbian cousin, Dice Dixon, is one of the main reasons her reality show, La La's Full Court Life, is so popular.
'Full Court' is averaging just over 1 million viewers per week, which was good enough to beat both "Basketball Wives LA" and the "T.O. Show" in last Monday's TV ratings race.
The show's young viewers are so smitten by the quirky antics of Dice and her lesbian sidekick, singer Po Johnson, that Dice has already gained over 25,000 followers on Twitter.com.
Part of the reason for all that attention is the rumor that Dice and singer Ciara are (or were) an item.
Earlier in the season, La La indicated that Dice is having a little difficulty dealing with her sexuality. In an upcoming episode, both La La and Dice shed tears while discussing Dice's sexuality. But in reality, Dice has shown no ambiguity in regard to her sexual orientation.
So in order to clear up any doubts, we submitted 5 questions to Dice for her approval.
An irate farmer halted the production of Rihanna's new music video for "We Found Love" after she took off her top during one scene in a muddy Northern Ireland field.
According to London tabloid The Daily Mail, Rihanna's raunchy sex moves shocked a Northern Ireland farmer on whose land she was shooting her music video.
Alan Graham, 61, pulled up in his tractor to tell Rihanna to cover up and later said, "Her behaviour was inappropriate."
Mr. Graham said he jumped down off his tractor and approached the 23-year-old star to tell her he didn't want that type of behavior on his land.
"I never heard of Rihanna until someone called me requesting the use of my land," he told The Daily Mail today. "I knew on Monday who she was. Someone explained she was as big as it gets as far as pop stars were concerned. I am a bit illiterate about those issues.
"My expectations were not made clear to [the man who requested use of the field], and everything that was going to take place was not made clear to me. To be fair to the people involved in asking for the field, I don't think they were aware either of what would take place.
'There was no agreement as such beforehand. I have not received any payment at this moment in time and I don't know if I will be paid.
'If someone wants to borrow my field and things become inappropriate, then I say: "Enough is enough. You are not entitled to do that". Source
The father of four said today: "She understood where I was coming from. We shook hands and parted company on good terms."
Rihanna, 23, was spotted filming her new video for her crappy single, "We Found Love", in County Down, Northern Ireland today. The troubled singer took some time out of her shooting schedule to cuss out a fan on Twitter. Why doesn't Rihanna (and other celebs) ignore the negative and reward the positive on social networking websites? It always amazes me when celebs respond to harsh criticism online while totally ignoring their real fans who love them unconditionally. Photo: Splash News Online
First lady Michelle Obama was featured prominently in ABC network's promotional Tv ads for "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" season premiere which aired last night.
Most viewers who watched the TV commercials had no idea that Rihanna would be on the show because she was left out of the TV ads. In fact, the network did promote Rihanna's appearance as a "surprise guest" on blogs and in print media, but not in commercial spots that featured the first lady Michelle Obama. Mrs. Obama simply wasn't interested in sharing screen time with a public drunken mess like Rihanna.
The Bajan singer, who once famously said, "I'm a rock star, not a role model!," wasn't actually on hand to help build a new house for needy families. Instead, she held a meet and greet with the families and a woman's veteran's group backstage at one of her concert stops (see video).
There's no doubt that Rihanna's public drunkenness has become a major cause for concern. Yesterday on Twitter.com, Rihanna lashed out at others who accused her of being a drug addict. But it appears that she Rihanna was worrying about the wrong thing. She failed to address her alcoholism which has become the talk of industry.
According to Upscalehype.com, Lindsay Lohan was spotted out in New York City dressed in all black last week. She wore a black long sleeve sweater layered over a skirt which she accessorized with a Chanel logo belt and black suede Walter Steiger “Oscar” platform ankle boots ($950).
There are reports coming out of Rihanna's camp that she fell off the wagon (again). "Rihanna was doing so well," said my source referring to the fragile superstar cutting back on her drinking in recent weeks.
The source added that Rihanna wasn't too upset over the furor caused by her wearing her necklace with the obscene word for 'vagina' when she visited the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil on Thursday. My source said Rihanna dismissed the latest controversy. "She saw [the controversy] as another reason to light up [and] drink," said our source. Rihanna does what Rihanna wants to do."
Pictures surfaced of Rihanna, wig askew and drink in hand, frolicking in a hotel pool in Brazil with friends on Friday before hitting the stage for a concert later that night. The Bajan beauty wore a black and white bandeau bikini as she sipped cocktails in the pool. Her personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales, kept a close eye on the troubled 23-year-old singer to make sure no harm came to her. Jen certainly has her work cut out for her.
A cancer scare forced actress-comedian Wanda Sykes to make a dramatic life decision to undergo a double mastectomy.
Sykes revealed her brush with cancer during an interview with fellow lesbian Ellen Degeneres to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Sykes, 47, said the cancer was found following a surgical procedure to reduce her breast size.
"This was in February. I went for the reduction. I had real big boobs and I just got tired of knocking over stuff. Every time I eat," she said.
"It wasn't until after the reduction that in the lab work, the pathology, that they found that I had DCIS [ductal carcinoma in situ] in my left breast. I was very, very lucky because DCIS is basically stage-zero cancer. So I was very lucky."
Sykes, who has a family history of breast cancer on her mother's side, added:
"But cancer is cancer. I had the choice of, you can go back every three months and get it checked. Have a mammogram, MRI every three months just to see what it's doing. But, I'm not good at keeping on top of stuff. I'm sure I’m overdue for an oil change and a teeth cleaning already." Source
Sykes and her wife, Alex, are the parents of nearly 2½-year-old twins. She told Degeneres, "I was like, I don't know, should I talk about it or what? How many things could I have? I'm Black, then Lesbian. I can't be the poster child for everything."
Sykes noted that, in addition to LGBT issues, she plans on participating in walks to find a cure for cancer. "I was real hesitant about doing this, because I hate walking. I got a lot of [cancer] walks coming up."
"I just admire the hell out of you," Degeneres responded.
Troubled singer Rihanna seemed in awe of the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro yesterday. The 23-year-old seemed to be deep in thought as she contemplated her personal meaning of the statue, which was barely visible due to rainy weather. The singer and her entourage visited the famed tourist attraction on her day off between a show in the nation's capital Brasilia and her headlining appearance in [today's] opening day of the huge Rock in Rio festival.
Her visit to the reverent site didn't stop Rihanna from showing her azz in concert. By the way, yesterday, we heard from a source within Rihanna's camp who told us that Rihanna "had to change her sound up" for her as yet untitled 6th studio album. That doesn't bode well for Rihanna's fans who have grown accustomed to her edgy hip-pop sound.
A Texas school suspended a 14-year-old boy for two days for telling a classmate he thought homosexuality was wrong.
According to Fox News and other media outlets, Dakota Ary was in a German class at the high school when the conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality. At some point during the conversation, he turned to a friend and said that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.”
“It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Dakota told Fox. “I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”
According to Fox, Dakota, an honors student, was given a one day in-school suspension – and two days of full suspension.
Dakota's mom, Holly Pope said she was “absolutely stunned” when she received a phone call informing her that the school had suspended her son.
There are indications the teacher may have been a homosexual.
Matt Krause, an attorney with the Liberty Counsel said the teacher had frequently brought homosexuality into ninth grade classroom discussions.
“There has been a history with this teacher in the class regarding homosexual topics,” Krause said. "The teacher had posted a picture of two men kissing on a wall that offended some of the students."
“He told the students this is happening all over the world and you need to accept the fact that homosexuality is just part of our culture now,” Krause said.
In February of last year an exhausted and worn out Beyonce wandered out on that same balcony wearing a pair of her hubby Jay Z’s boxers. Is it just a mere coincidence that Rihanna is wearing her pajamas too? What are the odds?
Long time lurker on your blog. I hope all is well with you! ^_^ Is this the same hotel Beyonce was seen at last year?
Cute that Riri needed a pajama/balcony photo op too.
Rap mogul Jay-Z is really showing his age. The 43-year-old expectant father was spotted leaving an office building in Manhattan yesterday. It looks like his wife Beyoncé is having their first child just in time. Photo: Splash News Online
This pic is for those confused lesbuns who prefer transgenders like Chaz Bono. You would be surprised how many women are into chicks who mutilate their bodies. I read a comment on another blog from a Chaz fan who actually wrote, "I don't see any scars on Chaz's body." As you know, Chaz made its debut on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" last night. Judges gave Chaz and dance partner Lacey Schwimmer a 17 out of 30 for their stiff cha cha routine. Xposurephotos.com
Last night was the season premiere of "Dancing With the Stars" on ABC, featuring the first transgender dancer and TV's favorite defense attorney.
Following the first round of dances, Nancy Grace, Ron Artest of the LA Lakers, Khloe's younger brother Rob Kardashian, and transgender Chaz Bono are all tied for dead last in the competition. One of them will go home tonight.
It''s hard to say which one out of the four was the worst dancer. But since they are all novices at it, they deserve kudos for at least stepping up to bat.
Chaz's introduction was a slap in the face to the supporters who said children wouldn't know whether she was a male or female.
As the producers flashed a cute pic of her as a little girl, Bono mentioned that she was born a female, and now thinks she's a man, despite retaining her female productive organs.
Good luck explaining that one to your kids!
Watch the videos of the first dances after the break.
Back in the '80s, before Chastity Bono thought she was a guy, she attended the same high school with a young Jennifer Aniston, who would later go on to achieve fame and glory as the star of a little TV show called Friends.
Both were students at the prestigious New York City High School Of Performing Arts in 1987, according to British tabloid The Daily Mail.
Aniston is now 42, with long blonde hair. And Bono, now 41, is no longer a lesbian after legally changing her gender to a male. Bono is one of the most controversial contestants on the 13th season ABC's Dancing With The Stars, which premieres Monday, Sept.19.
As you know by now, Rihanna's camp recently held an intervention of sorts for the singer in hopes of getting her off the substances she had become addicted to.
A source tells us the intervention was spearheaded by Rihanna's longtime personal assistant, Jennifer Rosales (pictured above). If you recall, it was Rosales who Rihanna called in a panic on that fateful night in 2009 begging her to contact the police after her then-boyfriend, singer Chris Brown, punched, kicked and bit her in a fit of rage.
Sources tell Sandrarose.com that the 23-year-old still smokes a little chronic here and there, but she has cut back drastically on "other drugs" including alcohol. The source says Rihanna has no coping skills, therefore, without the substances that she once used as a crutch, she has fallen into a deep depression.
Even her most loyal fans can tell the difference in the Bajan beauty's once bubbly personality.
In these paparazzi pics taken earlier today, Rihanna covered her face with Rosales's hoodie as she made her way through the airport at Sao Paulo, in Brazil where she has a concert on Saturday as part of her world tour. Observers said she looked "very tired" after her long trip from Los Angeles.
Are these videos the definitive proof that rapper Drake prefers hard legs and hairy backs? It sure looks like it. We don't know why Drake won't just up and admit it instead of leaking personal videos of Serena Williams dropping it low so his boys can think he hit that?
Not that his closet status changes the way we feel about the dope MC. He is still the #1 rapper in hip hop until someone challenges his crown.
Aspiring supermodel Ali Lohan, Lindsay Lohan's gorgeous 17-year-old sister, is the subject of vicious rumors acusing her of having plastic surgery and starving herself to achieve a nimble runway figure.
Ali's mom, dad, sister and reps have all rushed to Ali's defense saying she has never had plastic surgery a day in her life. Big sis Lindsay is fed up with all the rumors and she's not going to take it anymore.
Lilo took to her Twitter page last week to slam blogs and other media for picking on her sister.
"I love how haters pick on my sister yet every runway model is just as thin," she tweeted from her Twitter account last week. "My sister is gorgeous and I'm so proud of her and her career!!!"
After being sharply criticized by blog fashionistas for dressing like a bum these past few weeks, Barbadian singer Rihanna glammed it up for a night out at Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica last night. Rihanna wore an oversized jacket with patent leather sleeves (Burberry?) and a Fendi clutch. She completed her outift with a cute pair of strappy, open toe heels.
Singer Ciara was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City yesterday wearing a chic black and white ensemble. We hear that a reality TV show is in the works for CiCi but we don't know any of the details. As soon as we find out, you will be the first to know before the other blogs do!

Rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, was bored during a recent shoot for GLAMOUR mag, so she decided to start a new trend similar to the asinine 'planking' trend that swept Twitter.com a few months ago. This new trend is called 'fridging' -- and just as the word implies, you strike odd poses, preferably inside your mother's refrigerator.
Nicki demonstrated the new trend for her Twitter Stans, who happily followed her example by tweeting their own 'fridging' pics. One Stan even tweeted a pic of her cat fridgin.
The oldest of the two teens charged with assaulting a transgender female at a Baltimore county McDonald's will spend the next 5 years in prison for her crimes.
19-year-old Teonna Brown was 18 when she and a 14-year-old female accomplice pounced on Chrissy Polis outside the McDonald's women's restroom. The beating was captured on cell phone video by a McDonald's employee who was on duty at the time. The employee could be heard laughing on the video, and at one point he urged the attackers to flee before police arrived. That employee was terminated but no charges were brought against him.
Vicki Thoms, an elderly woman who tried to stop the assault was punched in the eye. The Baltimore County prosecutor is calling the unprovoked attack a hate crime.
“I don’t really care who the victim is,” said prosecutor Scott Shellenberger. “This wasn’t about a political statement. This was about prosecuting people for a heinous crime that they committed.”
Brown was convicted of a hate crime and first degree assault during a tense hearing yesterday in a Maryland courtroom. She was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Brown's 14-year-old accomplice is being held in a juvenile facility until she is 18.
Here's another post about down low men in the black community pretending to be straight while getting their backs twisted out in the privacy of their warm closets.
Until now the closeted NBA fraternity of gay players had managed to keep their existence a well-guarded secret. But Memphis Grizzlies rookie Josh Selby probably didn't receive the handbook on being discreet with those gold digging NBA groupies. Selby prefers his NBA groupies to be Hispanic boys who advertise their services on social networking websites such as Twitter.com.
According to Benny614tv.com, Josh Selby sent pics of himself to one @iAmJustinCruz on Twitter.com who promised to turn him out after exchanging direct messages (DMs on Twitter). "I'm just curious, not gay, bruh," tweeted Selby to Justin, after making hotel arrangements. Justin's page is now private, probably to protect his other "clients" on Twitter.
The blog published email messages below:
Josh wrote: wassup bruh….heres some pictures of me. don’t show anybody! because im in sports and dont want people to know and plus im just curious not gay bruh.
Justin replied: Aight well are you still gonna get the hotel room? and once I’m done with you your gonna get turned out LOL and when you get time follow me @IamJustinCruz
Josh wrote: Idk about all of that but will see your pretty face and yeah I’m getting the telly [hotel room] 443-**** 443-**** hit me up aight!
Updated: the family of the 17-year-old boy in @iamJustinCruz's original profile pic reached out to us to let us know that his profile pic was stolen off his Facebook page. His name is not Justin Cruz. The person updating the @iamjustincruz Twitter account has since replaced the teen's pic with a blurry image of an older looking Hispanic male. That pic might be stolen as well. All you down low NBA players need to be aware that the pretty face gays you seek on Twitter might not be who you think they are!

One of the nation's top girls high school basketball prospects was gunned down inside her apartment building in what her friends and family say was a case of mistaken identity.
According to published reports, 18-year-old Tayshana Murphy, nicknamed Chicken, was shot and killed around 4:10 a.m. Sunday morning in the Grant Harlem housing projects.
According to the NY Daily News, Murphy, wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, left a party at 4 a.m. with a group of friends from her housing project. She was confronted by a gunman and chased through an alley.
According to some who were at the party, Murphy was mistaken by her assailant for a boy who was wearing the same sweatshirt. She pleaded her innocence to the gunman.
"She was pleading for her life," Teka Taylor, one of Murphy's close friends, told the Daily News. "She was saying, 'No, please, I don't have nothing to do with it.'"
Hours after Tayshana was pronounced dead, her mother Stephanie Holston spoke to the NY Daily News about her daughter's dreams to move her out of the ghetto.
Cartoonish rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, looked like she was attending a funeral instead of a high fashion affair at the Yves Saint Laurent store during NYC's Fashion Night Out. For Minaj this Geisha girl look is probably as conservative as it gets. Minaj, who is bisexual, attended the event with her troubled, on again/off again boyfriend/hype man, Safaree Samuels, 32, who you recall bashed her in the mouth with a designer suitcase in a widely publicized assault back in June.
We knew when we heard rapper The Game mouthing off about gay rappers locked in the closet -- that it was only a matter of time before he outed one (or more) of them.
The Game disclosed what most of the industry already guessed: that rapper 50 Cent enjoys a good, strong back stroke every now and then. The Game inadvertently outed Fiddy while responding to a tweet from @TMZ on his Twitter page today.
TMZ.com, which is run by entertainment attorney Harvey Levin -- an out and proud gay man, tweeted: "@TheGame believes closeted gay men spread AIDS by "fooling" women to have sex with them".
The Game quickly responded: "They do, ask @Oprah," -- before tweeting this:
In case you were worried that former Project Runway contestant Mychael Knight was homeless and eating cat food out of a can, you should know that he is doing well, and he has another clothing line coming out.
PMG Media Group sent us this exclusive photo taken today of model Nic Pace (America's Next Top Model) and designer Mychael Knight at a fitting for his 2012 Spring/Summer "Lost World" collection, which is showing this Saturday at NY Fashion Week. Good for him.

ABC released candid shots of transgender individual Chaz Bono in the dance studio with dance partner Lacey Schwimmer. Bono's addition to the upcoming season of 'DWTS' resulted in a storm of protest from ABC's viewers.
In an interview with ABC News last week, Bono said America "really needs to see" a transgender individual on 'Dancing With The Stars'. How narcissistic of Chaz to say that.
Despite all the vicious hate mail I've received on this issue, I refuse to refer to Bono as a man. I will not feed into her delusions in order to be politically correct. Being a man is not as easy as taking hormone shots to grow a beard or wearing a wife beater every day.
R&B singer Ciara was photographed wearing the American flag as a cardigan as she left her hotel in New York City yesterday. CiCi's fashion choice is sure to cause controversy especially so close to September 11. She should really know better. Photo: Pena/Hall/INFphoto.com
Amber Rose was seen cheesing and waving to the paparazzi as she left Opening Ceremony in West Hollywood, CA yesterday. Amber has truly let herself go. She shows us why she will never again be considered one of the flyest beards in Hollywood. Such a pity... Photo: Fern/Splash News
