Some are calling Super Bowl 46 the greatest in Super Bowl history. It was certainly the first Super Bowl in recent memory where the commercials didn't upstage the game on the field. (This year's commercials were too numerous and too boring to remember.)
Super Bowl 46 was the 2nd meeting of the NY Giants and the New England Patriots, and the 2nd time the Giants came out on top. It was also the first (and probably the last) super bowl for hapless wide receiver Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson whose off-the-field antics didn't endear him to NE coach Tom Belichick.
It's almost certain that Belichick will unload Ochocinco after spending $6 million on him in a trade with the Bengals. No team will sign Ochocinco which will give him more time to plan his fake wedding to reality TV star Evelyn Lozada this Summer. Ocho and Evelyn had better take note of the fallout from Kim Kardashian and Kris Humprhies' fake made-for-TV wedding, which didn't go over well with the fans.
Watch the highlights from Super Bowl XLVI after the break!
That's what many are saying this morning after the NY Giants edged out the odds on favorites New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLVI 21-17 on Sunday. It was a hard fought battle between two Epic teams that came down to the wire in the final seconds with a Hail Mary heaved into the end zone by NE quarterback Tom Brady, who suffered one of the most humiliating defeats of his career.
But the humiliation began off the field for Brady last week when Tom's egotistical supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen allegedly sent out a "Prayer chain" email to her friends and family begging them to pray for Brady to win the Super Bowl.
How embarrassing for Brady -- and for Gisele, who actually believed that God had nothing better to do than fix the outcome of a football game.
Didn't she learn anything from Tim Tebow's blow out loss to these same New England Patriots just two weeks ago?
Gisele Bundchen is clearly a typical Narcissist who believes she is more worthy in the eyes of the Lord than any other NFL wife. If Brady had managed to eke out a win over the Giants, Gisele surely would have accepted some of the credit for the win.
Even after her husband's humiliating loss, Gisele continued to embarrass him -- and the Patriots wide receivers.
It should have been a relaxing day on the Beach in Miami for media personality La La Anthony and her son Kiyan. But instead Kiyan had to contend with the disruption of reality TV cameras as he played in the sand and surf.
LaLa was shooting scenes for her VH1 reality show, La La's Full Court Life on the beach today. Although he receives a paycheck for being his mommy's prop, Kiyan doesn't have a say in the decision to be in the show -- but his father does. Carmelo Anthony doesn't want anything to do with the show, and friends say he allows La La to exploit Kiyan on the show "to keep the peace at home."
Troubled singer Rihanna was spotted arriving at Roxbury nightclub in West Hollywood after the Clippers game last night. The "We Found Love" singer was dressed in hooker chic gear, including a blond lacefront wig, black thigh high hooker boots, a striped top and Daisy dukes ripped denim shorts. The 23-year-old was spotted holding hands with her long-suffering personal assistant Melissa, who looks like she's dropped a few pounds. I hope Melissa isn't sick.
Some of you may recall that disgraced preacher Eddie Long stepped down from his position as spiritual leader of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church late last year. His stated goal was to focus on his family -- in particular, his long-suffering wife who is divorcing him.
Well, Bishop Long is back in the pulpit. And he returned in typical dramatic fashion.
New Birth brought in a controversial "Rabbi" to crown Long as King in an elaborate Jewish ceremony using 300-year-old sacred scrolls that were found discarded outside a concentration camp in Germany in the 1940s.
I wonder how the Jews feel about this?
Update I, 4:45 pm ET: according to this blog, the "Rabbi" isn't even Jewish and the 300-year-old "Jewish scrolls" are fake:
GQ even put together a slideshow of Brown's fashion choices that is truly laughable! It probably doesn't help that Brown wears his pants off his butt like a 2-year-old with a loaded diaper.
For someone who seems to have so much disposable income - he boasts on one track about spending "15 grand on a phone" and charged over $500 for meet-and-greets on his last tour - Brown seems utterly adverse to investing in tailoring, combining the worst excesses of XXL sizing with a penchant for deeply unflattering costumes.
Brown's emotions are very fragile right now. I wonder how he's taking the news? The last time his personal style was attacked, he took to his Twitter page to rage about it:
Last night, while watching a rerun of the popular hit sitcom 'Girlfriends,' I was surprised to see words such as "bitch" and "damn" were censored by the cable network. 10 years ago, when 'Girlfriends' was a hit, profanity on the show was the norm. I thought it would only get worse over the years as morality continued its decline in America.
But today, cable networks are taking a stand against indecency, and gossip blog TMZ.com reports that BET has banned the woefully misogynistic music video "Stupid Hoe" by misguided rapper Nicki Minaj.
Why the sudden shift in morality by BET and other cable networks after all these years?
We spoke with a rep for BET who wouldn't specify exactly why the network has banned the video -- simply saying BET will not be broadcasting it.
But sources at the company tell us, the ban was put in place because the video's just too explicit for TV.
The song lyrics alone are bad enough -- repeating the phrase "stupid h*e" dozens of times -- but the video itself is damn raunchy too, showing several nearly naked female figures. Normally this is where we'd post the video ... but in this case, just Google it.
It's pretty great -- especially if you like Nicki's butt in a thong.
Last night on 'Braxton Family Values,' the sisters meet with their therapist Dr. Sherry to discuss their emotional conflicts with each other. Toni Braxton irked her sister Traci's Soul by suggesting that Traci lose "20 to 30 lbs now. And stop thinking that her tummy sticking out like that is hot, 'cause it's not."
Toni added: "You're too cute of a girl not to care about... to let herself go like that." Toni also said Traci's tummy wasn't always like that "so that lets me think she's comfortable."
The nerve of Toni to decide when another woman is comfortable with her body when Toni is sooo uncomfortable in her own skin!
Toni was extremely insensitive to suggest that her sister Traci lose weight to fit Toni's jacked up standard of beauty. Toni, with 20 lbs of weave on her head and a face that is surgically altered beyond recognition, is not so perfect herself! Isn't it funny that people who think they are so perfect always see their flaws in others but not in themselves?
Clearly, Traci is happy and comfortable with her weight -- which upsets her sisters who hate the fact that Traci accepts her beauty. Traci probably has no problems keeping a man, unlike her thin sisters who think they're so perfect.
I realize that this is just a reality show, but Toni irked me with that comment. I'm shocked that Towanda (the more level headed sister) didn't speak up for Traci. And what kind of therapist is Dr. Sherry to day Toni was "just being honest"?
Dr. Sherry should have turned that mirror back toward Toni so she could see the hurt in herself. Because only hurt people hurt others.
Rapper-turned-comedian Snoop Dogg gives sound advice to hopeless romantic Kris Humphries, who followed his heart -- and not his brains -- when he married narcissist Kim Kardashian in a made-for-TV wedding last year.
It's not entirely Kris' fault. It's a holdover from evolutionary days that some men lose all common sense when they are in the presence of a pretty woman.
In another video making the rounds on the Internet yesterday, rapper Young Jeezy, weighed in by saying he would rather die than marry a Kardashian. We're sure he meant Kim, not Khloe.
Earlier this week, paparazzi photos of troubled singers Rihanna, 23, and Chris Brow, 22, leaving the same nightclub fueled rumors that they were seeing each other. But nothing could be further from the truth. As we told you in this post, Rihanna and Brown, who was accompanied by his girlfriend KT, did not speak to each other.
PEOPLE confirms that Rihanna and Brown never bumped into each other that night (or any night for that matter).
Well, that could have been awkward: Chris Brown and Rihanna were both partying at L.A. nightspot Greystone Manor Supperclub, but the exes stuck to separate sides of the venue... According to the clubgoer, the exes never interacted.
According to my credible source, the fact that Brown chose Karaoke over Rihanna is "messing with her mind."
Rihanna is a classic Narcissistic Personality Disorder; she thinks she's entitled to have whomever or whatever she wants, she has little empathy for others, and she is very manipulative in relationships. Which explains why men (and women) avoid her like the plague.
Meanwhile, Brown continues to pollute the radio airwaves with his techno junk music. His latest musical offering is something called "Turn Up The Music". Click below to listen.
Heavily Photoshopped pictures of Evelyn Lozada's fake abs are on all the blogs today. That must mean a new season of the Fake Basketball Wives of Miami is right around the corner. Speaking of Evelyn, she is featured in the new issue of Maxim magazine, looking like a KING magazine reject. Whoever airbrushed her abs did a poor job.
I didn't watch last night's episode of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta, but from what I could tell from watching part 1 of the video, Marlo and NeNe are besties now (probably a mandatory requirement of their Bravo TV contracts). When NeNe describes her and Marlo's friendship, she can't even keep a straight face. She knows she's lying!
Marlo gives Nene a tour of her "mansion", which in reality was a foreclosed townhome she purchased (or leased) near St. Joseph's hospital in Sandy Springs.
Marlo got the townhouse for a steal just below $300K. But you can't tell that from watching Marlo's go on and on about her high security surveillance to protect her from stalkers. And what does she need with a staff in that little house? Just to show you how small her house is, the 3rd floor consists of her bedroom and a smaller bedroom which she converted into a closet.
If you look at the pictures from Marlo's viewing party held in December, her decorator, Michele Boyd, did a good job of making the basement of the townhouse look like a grand mansion. But don't be fooled.
Also, in this episode, Kim Zolciak dissolves into tears at the thought of her baby daddy Kroy Biermann leaving her to play for the Atlanta Falcons on the road (whose going to play with her while he's gone).
Yesterday, one of my Twitter.com followers informed me that comedienne Roseanne Barr went IN on Beyonce and President Obama for disrespecting Etta James while she was alive. It seems Miss Barr took offense to Obama giving Beyonce the honor of performing Etta's classic "At Last" for his first dance.
Miss James herself expressed outrage at the snub. Particularly since Beyonce did such a horrible job of singing. Everyone agreed that Miss James would have done the song more justice than fame whore Beyonce.
But Roseanne Barr settled the score for Etta on Saturday when she tweeted:
"i have not listened to anything beyonce or jay z has said or recorded since they did that to Etta. Their arrogance was disgusting."
Roseanne also dissed Beyonce's singing, her lacefronts and her fake azz all in one classic tweet!
Naturally, Beyonce's deranged Stans, who have nothing else to do with their boring lives, came for Miss Barr on Twitter with all the ferocity and venom of a pitbull with rabies.
And Roseanne pushed back!
She didn't mince her words either! She let those fools have it with blasts from both barrels of her B*tch Be Gone shotgun! I wish I could have gotten in on the fun on Saturday. But it's never too late to show Beyonce's Stans for the desperate, lonely, psycho losers that they all are.
After the break, I have compiled more of my favorite Roseanne Barr tweets for your entertainment pleasure. Enjoy!
Seal with Heidi Klum and two of their children were seen together in a compilation photo dated Jan. 7, 2012.
On Saturday, gossip website TMZ broke the story that supermodel Heidi Klum would file for divorce from singer Seal. 24 hours later, the couple released a statement to the Associated Press announcing their intention to separate.
The announcement was conveniently timed to coincide with the U.S. release of Seal's album of 70s Soul classics remakes, Soul 2, which drops tomorrow (Jan. 24).
This "separation" has all the earmarks of a well-orchestrated publicity stunt. Complete with a convenient leak to a popular gossip website. Sources "directly connected" with Heidi tell TMZ that the couple are separating due to Seal's temper -- not because of a third party. Of course narcissists wouldn't dare cheat on each other, right?
Furthermore, the source tells TMZ that Heidi has become "a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich", which doesn't sit well with Seal. Oh, and did I mention that they still live together under the same roof?
How ironic that Jay Z once said "I'm not a businessman/ I'm a business, man." How right he was.
Rap mogul Jay Z, 42, is a former crack dealing rapper turned businessman who doesn't have a clue what it takes to run a business.
The majority of Jay Z's business holdings were acquired to boost his image and increase his visibility in the corporate world. That explains why his businesses often fail.
Take for instance his 40/40 sports bar in New York city. Jay Z threw a splashy Grand reopening bash for the restaurant/lounge earlier this week. But it was more of a show to make himself the center of attention. It's hard to say who is the biggest fame whore: Jay Z or his wife Beyonce.
Photos of Jay Z schmoozing with billionaire Warren Buffet were splashed all over the media on Wednesday. But within 48 hours, Club 40/40 was shut down by the city's health department for violating a number of health code violations.
Apparently, 40/40 wasn't expecting a visit from the health inspectors so soon.
If Jay was really an astute businessman he would have made sure his establishment was prepared to open to the public, rather than using the reopening as a vehicle to flaunt his wealthy friends to the media.
Etta James, whose powerful, versatile and emotionally direct voice could enliven the raunchiest blues as well as the subtlest love songs, most indelibly in her signature hit, “At Last,” died Friday morning in Riverside, Calif. She was 73.
Her manager, Lupe De Leon, said that the cause was complications of leukemia. Ms. James, who died at Riverside Community Hospital, had been undergoing treatment for some time for a number of conditions, including leukemia and dementia. She also lived in Riverside.
Ms. James was not easy to pigeonhole. She is most often referred to as a rhythm and blues singer, and that is how she made her name in the 1950s with records like “Good Rockin’ Daddy.” She is in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame.
She was also comfortable, and convincing, singing pop standards, as she did in 1961 with “At Last,” which was written in 1941 and originally recorded by Glenn Miller’s orchestra. And among her four Grammy Awards (including a lifetime-achievement honor in 2003) was one for best jazz vocal performance, which she won in 1995 for the album “Mystery Lady: Songs of Billie Holiday.”
No wonder Alicia Keys is hanging on tightly to music producer Squid Beaks: he's worth untold millions!
According to the NY Post, Swizz is one of the owners (along with a German guy) of the world's largest file sharing site, Megaupload.com. Unfortunately, Megaupload.com was shut down today -- and its employees were arrested and indicted by the feds for moving mass quantities of illegal music and movie files online.
Ironically, Swizz Beatz is exactly the type of shady individual that the anti-piracy SOPA bill is targeting. This means Mr. Beaks himself could be in handcuffs very soon!
Swizz Beatz has Sean “Diddy” Combs, Kanye West and Will.i.am in hot water with their label by getting them to promote his site, MegaUpload. The CEO of the Internet company, Beatz — also a recording artist, producer and DJ — persuaded the stars to appear in a “Mega Song” video promoting his service, intended to send large media files. The catch is the music industry has been fighting against file sharing, accusing the services MegaUpload offers of supporting piracy. Beatz’s wife, Alicia Keys, has also promoted the site with her picture and a quote. Swizz had also asked Mary J. Blige, Kim Kardashian, Lil Jon and Macy Gray to promote MegaUpload. Source
It's a shame that Negroes will do anything for money.
Remember when rumors about Jay Z and Beyonce paying $1.3 million to rent an entire floor at NY's Lenox Hill hospital turned out be a lie? Well, they didn't clear up that rumor like they did with the other rumors about the birth because they want you to believe that they spent that cash. Why? Because the money isn't rolling in like it used to.
Both Beyonce and Jay Z haven't had million selling hits in some time. And you know what happens to celebrities when their endless cash supply stops rolling in but they are still living beyond their means.
According to documents filed at the New York Department of Labor, 28 of the 56 workers at the fashion label were let go on January 6. That's the day before the couple's daughter, Blue Ivy, was born.
When media mogul Nick Cannon was hospitalized two weeks ago, his worried wife, singer Mariah Carey-Cannon, took to her Twitter page and tweeted a photo of her husband in a hospital bed. She tweeted that Nick was in "mild kidney failure" and she asked her millions of followers to pray for him.
Since we had no real information to go on -- other than the photo and Mariah's tweets -- fans were left to guess what was really ailing Nick. I guessed that Nick might have compartment syndrome (a consequence of intense weight lifting which can lead to kidney failure), or kidney stones.
Yesterday morning Nick returned to his radio gig at 92.3 WXRK, and he finally came clean about what caused his illness: a urinary tract infection.
If you thought Beyonce was going to give us a break after having that baby, you thought wrong. Beyonce was recently tapped to appear in L'Oreal's "Find Your True Match" makeup commercial.
"Today was all about being honest," says one of the most dishonest celebrity's in entertainment history. "There's a story behind my skin; it's a Mosaic of all the faces before it," she says as the words 'African American, Native American and French' appear on the screen.
In the ad, Beyonce pretends to be mixed with Black, Indian and French -- and the L'Oreal marketing people fell for her blatant lies! If Beyonce had any French or Indian in her why would would she need a walk-in closet full of custom made lacefronts?
True Match™ Super-Blendable Makeup shades are now cleaner, truer and even more natural. With the new patented color technology, True Match Makeup precisely matches your skin’s tone and texture.

Rihanna's record label went into damage control this past weekend after photos of the Bajan singer smoking a rolled up joint surfaced online.
Rihanna was seen smoking a hand rolled joint while vacationing in Hawaii on Sunday. Later that same day, she sent out a tweet to her 12 million followers on Twitter.com glorifying her alcohol and drug use:
"Kush rolled, glass full...I prefer the better things!"
The 23-year-old singer has been spiraling out of control since last Summer when word leaked out of her camp that she was an out of control alcoholic and substance abuser. Sandrarose.com broke the story first about Rihanna's drinking problem.
Rev. Run's daughter, Angela Simmons looked like a page out of American Hooker magazine as she strolled with a friend in West Hollywood yesterday. They say the preacher's daughters turn out to be the worst in the streets, and Angela is certainly evidence of that. How embarrassing it must be for Rev. Run. Photo: V. Labissiere / Splash News
Usher Raymond's ex-wife, Tameka Raymond continues her quest to gain public sympathy. She recently sat down for an interview with Uptown magazine to talk about why she thinks User is fighting her for full custody of their sons, Usher Raymond IV, aka Cinco, 4, and Daviyd, 3.
“He is a man very accustomed to having his way,” Raymond says. “This has nothing to do with how I parent. Trust me, I never will have a desire to keep a man away from his kids. I am not June Cleaver or head of the PTA, but I know I am a good mother.”
The above photo from the interview shows Tameka with her oldest son, Darrin, 21 (far right), whom she had when she was 19 and roughing it in Oakland, CA.
The other boys are Daviyd play fighting with his half brother (whom Tameka had with Atlanta clothier Ryan Glover). Glover's other son is the boy sitting 2nd from left with Cinco.
Darrin is a mystery to many Tameka observers who thought she only had 4 boys.
As Uptown Editor-in-chief Isoul Harris explains: Darrin's father was murdered before he was born. During the photo shoot, Darrin noticed Isoul snapping a pic with his cell phone and he immediately signaled to Tameka, whom he is "?ercely protective" of.
“Because I had him at such a young age, he and I basically grew up together and we are extremely close. But I am very conscious not to be an overbearing mother,” says Tameka.
The other shoe has dropped on Kim Kardashian: She's out, and the dogs are in.
Skechers, which featured the reality star in a sexy ad for Shape-Ups during last year's Super Bowl, will instead air a spot that features a French bulldog wearing Skechers' GOrun shoes, according to USA Today. The new kicks are part of Skechers' new high-tech line.
"Kim got us more attention than we ever dreamed," Skechers Fitness president Leonard Armato says. "We have to establish Skechers as more than a lifestyle company."
Amid all the hoopla over the "birth" of The Chosen One, Solange Knowles, the sister of the new mom, whose name shall not be mentioned, went on a Twitter rant yesterday deploring the insensitivity towards her sister.
"It has really gotten out of hand. I've been doing my best at keeping my mouth shut....but the ignorance is really sad and upsetting," she wrote in one of a series of tweets on her verified Twitter page.
We are supposed to be super human and watch people we love get slandered, lied on, and ridiculed. It is one of THE hardest things to accept. In any other workplace...if someone directly tells your mother or sister is a liar and a fake ect...you would naturally express yourself. However, the pure happiness and joy I've witnessed and experienced helps me to keep my mouth shut.
We hear that Solo's anger was misdirected at her sister and brother-in-law, who refused to allow Solo to live tweet her niece's birth -- and who had the audacity to give fame whore Gwyneth Paltrow the honor of announcing the baby's name to the world via a tweet!
Our very credible sources tell us Solange is "mad as hell" at her sister and brother-in-law for not giving her the privilege of announcing the baby's name. But her sister reportedly told her she'll get over it.
Actors Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are engaged -- to each other, US Weekly magazine confirms. Rumors swirled at the start of the New Year that Halle was engaged when the 48-year-old twice-divorced mother of one was spotted with a sizable rock on her left hand.
That same day, Halle turned the ring around and made a noticeable effort to hide her left hand from the paparazzi. But why all the secrecy? Shouldn't an engagement be one of the happiest times of a woman's life -- even if it's her third time?
According to US Weekly, Martinez, 46, proposed to Halle over the holidays, with an emerald-and-diamond ring from Gurhan. She met the French actor while working on the film Dark Tide in 2010.
Halle has a daughter, Nahla, 3, with Canadian underwear model Gabe Aubry, 36. Olivier has no children. Halle was previously married to R&B singer Eric Benet (2001), and former Atlanta Braves baseball star David Justice (1993). Each marriage lasted for 4 turbulent years.
Following her divorce from Benet, Halle swore she would NEVER marry again.
We wish we could say that we're happy for Halle, but judging from her past history with men (mostly celebrities), we already know how this marriage will turn out.
Britain's 'X Factor' judge Kelly Rowland was spotted shopping in New York's Lucky Wang store for baby clothes. We can only assume that she was shopping for the baby of a former bandmate whose name my readers are tired of seeing so we I won't mention it.
According to the Daily Mail, Kelly bought a green onesie with a picture of Rastafarian musician Bob Marley on the front.
The onsie looks bigger than a newborn who weighs 7 pounds. The item can be found on another store's website, Shu Shi Shop, retailing for about $22.
She was seen leaving the store in a hurry with her purchase - possibly off to see the newborn and her famous parents who left the hospital in a grand display of narcissism this morning. Hopefully we won't see or hear any more from those two for at least a month. We need a break.
Apparently Beyonce and Jay Z think they're the Obamas? The couple left Lenox Hill hospital early Tuesday with newborn baby Blue Ivy in tow. The NY Daily News says witnesses described a scene similar to the rolling roadblocks that the local police and Secret Service employ whenever President Obama is in town:
A procession of vehicles with blacked-out windows made a speedy exit from the upper East Side hospital’s side gate in the wee hours of Tuesday, witnesses said.
Two black SUVs motored quickly out of the facility’s E. 76th St. loading dock at 1:30 a.m.
Moments later, a van parked on a nearby corner reversed into the same loading dock, and the large roll-down gate closed.
The gate reopened a few minutes later and the van drove out, turned the wrong way on the one-way 76th St., and then headed north on Park Ave.
One of the two SUVs blocked traffic on Park Ave. so the van would not be impeded.
The second SUV pulled in behind the van, apparently to prevent anyone from following the music icons and their newborn daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
It was “very precise, very military-like,” one witness said.
“Immediately, security personnel began leaving the hospital.” Source
