Gossip tabloid The National Enquirer has published photos of a cross-dressing John Travolta in this week's issue. In the photos, which weren't snapped on a movie set, Travolta, 58, wears full makeup, a pink dress and a blond wig pulled back into a ponytail.
According to The Enquirer, the photos were taken at a party in 1999 -- six years after he married his long-suffering wife of 23 years, Kelly Preston.
Now comes word that Preston has left Travolta after enduring years of Travolta's cross-dressing fetish, and other bizarre behaviors.

A few weeks ago, a source reached out to Sandrarose.com with a weird scoop: she told me that Rihanna was moving to my birthplace (London) to be closer to her new love.
"You're going to be shocked when you find out who it is," my source told me.
I lobbed a few guesses into the air but my source swatted all of my guesses down.
Never in a million years did I guess Rihanna's new lover would turn out to be British singer Rita Ora!!
My source has not confirmed this yet, but when you consider Rihanna's actions over the past few weeks, it makes total sense!

How many times does Will Smith have to tell you he's not gay?
Smith, who is married to actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, has repeatedly denied the persistent ghey rumors over the years.
But his denials doesn't keep the gheys from trying him.
Smith just about reached the limits of his endurance with the ghey rumor thing when a gutsy Russian reporter tried to kiss him in the mouth on the red carpet at the Russian premiere of Men in Black III.

In 2009, one year after Barack Obama was elected president in a landslide victory, I posted these images of the president and the first lady Michelle Obama together. Body language enthusiasts can clearly see the involuntary signals that Michelle was sending at the time. Her closed body position clearly indicates some discord between the two. But when I pointed the signals out to my readers back then, they scoffed at me.
According to author Edward Klein, whose new book "The Amatuer" is about to hit store shelves, the Obamas once talked divorce.

Singer Chris Brown apparently disses his former girlfriend Rihanna in the most embarrassing way: on a track.
On "Way Too Cold" -- riding to Kanye West's "Thera Flu" beat, Chris spits:
"Don't fu*k with my old bitches like a bad fur/Every industry nigga done had her/Trick or treat like a pumpkin just to smash her/Bitches breaking codes, but I'm the password."'
Here's Rihanna's response to the track:
And here's Chris Brown's reply to Rihanna:
Oops... All of this kind of answers a question that's been nagging me for about a month now. I will keep that question to myself for right now. But I will say that I don't mind being used, as long as I'm getting something out of it.
Yesterday I was tempted to write a Blind Item post on singer Ceelo Green who reportedly keeps a harem of beautiful chicks from here to the west coast, and beyond. But I changed my mind because I do run into him occasionally at the mall, and he seems like a nice enough guy, but you never know.
Word around the industry is, Ceelo is reportedly responsible for paying the bills of a group of jump offs around the country (@MissErika in Texas is allegedly one of them). Ceelo can afford to keep a harem because he is so loaded -- and all the groupies know he's easy.
I'm not even going to mention what people are saying about Ceelo, or the names they are calling him. This is a family oriented blog.
But imagine my surprise today, as I'm perusing my favorite photo service, I spy a photo of Ceelo with yet another well-known Atlanta groupie, Mihwa Monk, also known as singer/actor Jason Weaver's baby mama.
Mihwa, who has been arrested a slew of times for allegedly passing bad checks, is probably one of Atlanta's most famous groupies. She has a son by Jason, and she dated NBA player Antoine Wright, among others. The question isn't who has she been with, but who hasn't she been with?

Reality TV shows have the perfect audience: people who will believe everything they see and read. For years now, the media has been going on about how 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' cast member Nene Leakes is leaving her husband Greg Leakes. Yet every time we see Nene, we see Greg.

Earlier today, a ridiculous rumor raced across the social networking websites shortly after Rihanna tweeted pics of herself making it rain on dancers at a NY strip club.
People began speculating that Rihanna and someone named Meek Mill were "smashing" because they were at the same club on the same night. A quick Google search turned up information that Meek Mill is some sort of rapper based out of NY.
Because I'm a blogger, I feel it is my job to clear up certain bogus rumors so my readers won't get distracted and start believing everything they read.
To get the scoop on whether Rihanna even knew this dude, I reached out to my well-placed source within her camp earlier today. But before I could even get the words out of my mouth, my source started laughing hysterically.
So there you have it. Draw your own conclusions.
I just received a tip that Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, is in fact Blue Ivy's biological mother. I can't confirm this new information. So please do not quote me. But, according to my source, Beyonce visited a fertility doctor in her futile attempts to have a baby. Sadly, the fertility treatments failed and Beyonce was forced to solicit the assistance of a professional surrogate.
Solange, who has one son of her own, offered her uterus to her beloved sister. But Beyonce declined the generous offer. Bey did, however, agree to use Solange's eggs which were fertilized by Jay Z's sperm in a lab and implanted into the surrogate.
As you can see from these grainy photos that were taken from a great distance in St. Barths, Solange and Blue Ivy are practically twins.
A loyal reader, who asked to remain anonymous, writes:
DO YOU REALLY THINK ALL THESE PEOPLE WOULD KEEP UP THE CHARADE OF HER REALLY CARRYING AROUND A DOLL? JUST A QUESTION.
What do you guys think? I'm going to say that the child Beyonce is holding in the left pic doesn't look like the well-nourished baby/doll she's been carrying around. These pics only add to the mystery.
Years ago I wrote a post about Khloe Kardashian dating rapper Young Jeezy. Literally minutes after I published that post, an email from Jeezy's publicist landed in my Inbox. She wanted me to know, in no uncertain terms, that Khloe was not dating Jeezy.
In her email, the publicist stated that she was good friends with Khloe, who took to her blog the day before to dispute rumors that was seen partying with Chris Brown.
Later I found out that Khloe was actively pursuing then-Lakers star Lamar Odom. And she didn't want Lamar to think she was giving up her goodies to every rapper who came along.
Image has always been a top priority to Khloe and her sisters, and Khloe had big plans for Lamar.

According to Stiletto Jill, Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose and his girlfriend are expecting a baby.
Jill says Mieka’s sister "accidently" confirmed the pregnancy on Twitter in this tweet dated April 7th:
Jill might be jumping the gun and making assumptions about the seemingly random tweet. But since Mieka is Derrick's fiancee, who else could be the daddy?

After disputing rumors that the Dallas Mavericks were sending forward Lamar Odom to the D-league, the Mavs and Odom have officially parted ways today.
"The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it's in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team," Odom said in a statement to ESPN.com.
The Mavericks will list Odom as inactive, meaning the team can trade Odom next season. The 32-year-old former LA Laker will be forced to sit out for the rest of this season.

This season's "Basketball Wives" isn't doing too well in the ratings for VH1. We hear that the show's producers plan to totally revamp the cast and add new groupies who are willing to split wigs and toss more drinks next season. Desperate for ratings, the producers begged current cast member Evelyn Lozada to stage a public dust up with another cast member -- but she refused.
Lozada visited Miami strip club G5 over the Easter holiday to host a party. Lozada, 41, a rumored bisexual, turned up at the club with one of her side chicks, and they both partied like rock stars in the VIP with famed Miami stripper Tip Drill (pictured above with Evelyn).
If you recall, Tip was the stripper who made headlines when she lost her grip and fell off the pole at King of Diamonds strip club earlier this year. Tip was rushed into surgery at a local hospital.
Rappers and other ballers who appreciate Tip's unique pole skills took to Twitter.com to wish @origtipdrill a speedy recovery. Rapper @Drake tweeted: "Praying for my homegirl Tip Drill one time."
Tip took a brief hiatus from the pole. She bides her time shooting music videos (such as Nicki Minaj's "Beez in the Trap" featuring 2Chainz).

Most of us who didn't watch season 4 of Bravo's partially scripted 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' really don't care that the reunion show is coming up. But some of you do care. So here's the tea: RHOA veteran Sheree Whitfield has apparently been shown the door -- but she won't be leaving quietly. Sources say Sheree will "lose her mind" during the show's finale. She was irrelevant anyway.
It didn't help matters for Sheree that her ex-husband, Bob Whitfield, started dating Atlanta blogger Michelle, owner of StraightfromtheA.
They say Sheree was so intimidated by Michelle that she apparently used her pull with the show's producers to keep Michelle from joining the cast 2 seasons ago.
Well, Sheree's "pull" is now gone, and apparently so is she.
Bob Whitfield's disastrous appearance on the show this season failed to generate a story line. So he packed his things and moved to the west coast where he has enrolled in college. According to sources, Michelle and Whitfield continue their relationship long distance. She is considering a move to the west coast, since Bob has no plans to return to the Atlanta area.

They couldn't get our attention by themselves, so Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West have teamed up to play the media like a fiddle.
Kardashian, whose sordid past is littered with foolish men, was a guest on the Today show on Friday.
When asked by Today show co-host Ann Curry if she and Kanye West are an item, Kardashian, 31, said coyly, "Kanye and I have been friends for years. ... You never know what the future holds."
I'm going to guess that's a no.
But isn't that what we expected her to say? Most people who are in love don't mind shouting it from the rooftops.
Seriously, do you see any love in their eyes when they're together? They don't even have that Dopamine glow that most young lovers confuse for love.
Does she even know what love is?
"I love really hard. I fall hard, and I followed my heart," Kardashian said. "When things don't work out, that's sometimes just how life is. What's the point in dragging something out ... when you know that it's just not it for you?"
Yesterday, Whitney Houston's final autopsy report was released to the media and others who immediately began misinterpreting the coroner's findings. There is so much misinformation surrounding the autopsy report. Where do I begin?
First and foremost, Whitney died as the result of accidental drowning, meaning there was enough water in her lungs to interfere with the delivery of oxygen to her brain. The singer's entourage found her face down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her suite at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 11.
According to the report, Whitney's drowning death was preceded by a cocaine overdose. Cocaine was found in her system, and cocaine residue was found on a spoon and on a rolled up sheet of paper in her hotel suite.
Someone supplied Whitney with that cocaine, since she obviously didn't procure it for herself. Many in the industry believe a close friend of hers supplied her with the drug.
Whitney was a chronic cocaine snorter, as evidenced by the finding of a perforated posterior septum, which means a hole in her nose caused by chronic cocaine use.
Whitney was also vain about her appearance. The coroner had to pry a brown lacefront wig off her head which was "firmly attached to her hair."
The coroner's report also noted Whitney's McGhan breast implants (size: 230 cc).
A sex assault kit was performed on Whitney in the hotel room where she died. If she had sex prior to her death, semen might have been collected. But that's not likely since she was found submerged in water.
Now let's get to the misinformation that is circulating.
This morning, an Atlanta area radio morning show reported incorrectly that Whitney's body was scalded in 93 degree water that caused her skin to peel off. That's not true.

Is a movie poster-style online graphic really just a marketing ploy for a sequel to the 1981 cult classic film 'Escape from NY'? Or is it really a warning from Al-Qaeda that they have bigger plans for the big apple than 9/11?
According to Yahoo News, via the Associated Press, a mock movie poster surfaced on a website warning al-Qaida plans to return to New York City, but the NYPD says they are convinced that it's an actual threat.
I wonder what it would take to convince the NYPD of a serious threat from Al-Qaeda?
The feds -- more specifically, Homeland Security -- are all over the movie poster warning. The feds aren't taking any chances. They are monitoring the Arab-language website for any other signs of apocalyptic-style warnings.

After listening to GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum's gaffe over and over again, I would have to say that I don't hear Santorum uttering the N-word.
I reached this conclusion because racists don't bite their tongues when spewing their hatred. Biting their tongues would require some sort of conscience, human decency or morals and standards. And we know that racists don't possess any of those attributes or character traits.
How could a God-fearing father of 7 and faithful husband be a racist? Mr. Santorum is guilty of a mere slip of the tongue, also known as a Freudian slip.
I choose to believe that Mr. Santorum was about to say "We know the candidate Barack Obama what he was like: the anti-war, government NIG-gotiator..."

According to VH1 blog, Basketball Wives cast member Tami Roman, 41, was admitted and released from the hospital for a “mild medical condition” on Tuesday. Roman confirmed via her Twitter that she had a "mild heart attack."

Trayvon Martin is dead, and now the media is determined to kill off his character too. The 17-year-old Miami Gardens high school student was gunned down by a racist neighborhood watch vigilante on Feb. 26 in the town of Sanford, Florida.
His killer, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, claims self defense as the reason he pulled the trigger, ending Trayvon's young life that cold, rainy night.
it doesn't matter that Trayvon doesn't have a criminal record -- or that Zimmerman does.
What matters to the national media are a boy's fascination with gold teeth, and the fact that he was suspended from school for 10 days for having marijuana residue in his book bag.
In its own inimitable way, the media has rushed to uncover the evidence to confirm Zimmerman's stereotyped portrayal of the boy as a thug who deserved to be shot to death for swinging on him.

Whitney Houston's ex-sister-in-law, Leolah Brown, appeared on CNN's Dr. Drew last night to comment on the LA County coroner's findings that Whitney had cocaine in her system when she died in a hotel bathtub last month.
In Brown's opinion, Ray J was Whitney's drug supplier. She also disputed reports that Ray J and Whitney were dating.
“I am going to believe that Ray J -- who Whitney told me she had no relationship with ... he was, like she said, a runner boy. He was buying [drugs] for Whitney for what I know, and giving her drugs," Leolah told Dr. Drew.
If Ray J was anything serious to Whitney, surely she would have named him in her will, right?

Brandy's opportunistic brother Ray J is outraged that insiders are accusing him of being Whitney Houston's cocaine supplier.
The LA County coroner's final report listed cocaine among the handful of drugs found in Whitney's system when she died in a hotel bathtub on Feb. 11.
According to TMZ.com, the coroner Craig Harvey described the cocaine level in Whitney's system as "acute" -- a medical terminology for short-term.
So Whitney must have ingested the cocaine within hours of being found unresponsive in a bathtub in her suite at the Beverly Hilton last month.
But TMZ.com reports that somebody removed the cocaine from the hotel room before police and paramedics arrived. The person who removed the coke was the same one who supplied it to Whitney.
But Ray J tells TMZ.com it wasn't him. TMZ also reports that the sheets were missing from the bed in Whitney's hotel room. Could it be that the sheets were removed to destroy biological evidence that could reveal who was doing coke with Whitney before she died?

According to my loyal informer within Beyonce's camp, her husband, Jay Z, is feeling the pressure to spend more quality time at home with her and their infant daughter, Blue Ivy.
"He's cheating on her with other women, but she doesn't care about that," said the source. "She wants him to spend more time at home with them. That's the most important thing to her right now," said the source, who added that Jay Z is pushing Beyonce to go out on tour to take the pressure off of himself.
Jay Z is reportedly working to put together a $150 million world tour for Beyonce with Live Nation, but my source says Beyonce is not "emotionally or physically" ready to return to the rigors of touring. "A world tour is very demanding and time-consuming," says the source. "She wants to do smaller, more intimate venues. She's not ready for [a world tour] yet."
It is rumored that Beyonce is suffering from postpartum depression after the birth of Blue Ivy in January. In other photos taken yesterday, Bey's eyes were red as if she had been weeping. Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, has not left her side since Blue Ivy was born on Jan.7.
Beyonce and Jay Z were spotted leaving their New York apartment last night to go on a dinner date at Nobu restaurant. After dinner, Jay Z and his boys hit the studio. Beyonce also attended a fundraising event for the Obama re-election campaign.

Jada Pinkett-Smith knows where her loyalties lay, despite persistent rumors that her husband, Will Smith, is having an affair with his best friend, Duane Martin. The 40-year-old actress and mother of two recently recorded a song titled "Burn" which she dedicated to Smith after 13 years of marriage. Jada also shot a video for the song with her rock band Wicked Wisdom. You can view the behind the scenes video after the break.
For years Will Smith has battled pesky rumors of infidelities with both men and women. But Jada has also had her share of ghey rumors. Most notably, the one about her routinely sending her hair stylist to fetch women and bring them back to her hotel room for a night of passion (with or without Will). Jada was spotted leaving her NYC hotel room earlier today. The rock star wore a white suit over fuchsia 6 inch open toe heels. She looks great for 40.

Carmelo Anthony's wife, LaLa Anthony, called the paparazzi to let them know she would be walking with her son Kiyan Anthony on the street where the shop Serendipity is located in NYC. Kiyan, who just turned 5 on March 7th, is being given a bigger role on LaLa's reality show this upcoming season. The new season will also focus on the rampant and unceasing rumors of 'Melo's infidelities with random tramps on Twitter.com. LaLa's therapist reportedly advised her to face the rumors head on rather than continue to ignore or deny them. Meanwhile, her husband has slapped down rumors that he would ask to be traded if the NY Knicks front office didn't fire coach D'Antoni, with whom he reportedly didn't get along. D'Antoni turned in his resignation on Tuesday. But 'Melo denied the rumors that he forced the Knicks to get rid of the coach. Knicks fans blame 'Melo for the Knicks losing record. The Knicks are 3-8 after 'Melo returned to the team after rehabbing a groin injury last month.

When news of Whitney Houston's tragic death was announced on Feb. 11, everyone's thoughts were with her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19. Few people knew she had a so-called "adopted son," named Nick Gordon. Later we learned that Whitney took Nick in when he was 11-years-old, but she never formally adopted him.
Now we find out that sometime after Nick moved into Whitney's home, he started getting real intimate with her daughter. Bobbi K. and Nick were spotting kissing and holding hands together last Friday outside a Target store in Johns Creek, Georgia, according to Hollywoodlife.com.
And last night, Nick updated his Twitter page to let everyone know: "Yea we got a little closer and what!!!" He also posted a new pic of himself and Bobbi Kristina together. This is the same dude who was reportedly being evicted from Whitney's home. I guess that's not happening now.
After Whitney passed away, a loyal reader emailed me photos of Nick Gordon taken from Bobbi K.'s Twitter account. The email author wondered if I would ask my readers to pray for her "adopted son." But I politely declined for two reasons: 1. I had never heard of Whitney having an adopted son, and 2. Bobbi K. and Nick looked like they were more than just siblings to me.
According to the Chicago Suntimes, a source close to Whitney Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, revealed that Cissy confronted the traitor who sold the final photo of Whitney in an open casket to the National Enquirer.
The Houston family source said Cissy “had a come-to-Jesus moment” with the guilty party and demanded the alleged six-figure fee for the photo be donated to charity.
Insiders are whispering that the person who sold the final photo was most likely Whitney's closest friend and sister-in-law, Pat Houston, who signed at least one deal to profit off of Whitney's death.

Singer Melanie Fiona has lost another boyfriend, according to the NY Post's Page Six. Last year I published an email from a loyal reader who was upset about CSI Miami star and Latino hunk Adam Rodriguez dating Melanie. But neither Melanie nor Adam ever confirmed that they were dating.
According to Page Six, the couple were dating, but now they're not. Apparently Melanie still has a little Dopamine in her system because she's having trouble letting go:

Earlier this week, celebrity blog TMZ.com reported that retired NFL star and Heisman trophy winner, Eddie George, 38, was the passenger in a car being driven by 21-year-old British pro golfer Rachel Connor when she was busted for driving drunk at 2AM.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, Feb. 7, in Sarasota, Florida. George and Connor were having dinner with friends after attending a two-day charity golf event together. After dinner, George and Connor climbed into her car for what would have been a short drive to his hotel.
But soon after leaving the restaurant, cops pulled Connor's weaving car over. It was determined that Connor was stumbling drunk -- she could barely walk and she couldn't count in numerical order.
The police report indicates that Connor's breathalyzer test results were .133 and a .137 -- way over the legal limit to drive safely.
Yet, George insisted that neither he nor his friends felt that Connor was too impaired to drive. That's probably what George told his wife, Tamara Johnson, aka "Taj" of 90s R&B group SWV.
