Didn't I tell you that Basketball Wives cast member Jennifer Williams would drop her fake "bitch slap" lawsuit against Nia Crooks when the season ended? VH1 and Bravo will continue to produce degrading "reality" shows as long as their gullible viewers continue watching.
Unconfirmed rumors suggest Jennifer Williams was not being asked back for another season of Basketball Wives after she filed a lawsuit against Evelyn Lozada's assistant, Nia Crooks, for slapping her face during an episode of the show [click here if you missed that].
Now, after a rough summer of having her Bentley repossessed and her estranged husband Eric's secret baby put on blast, Jennifer decided she's just had enough and has dropped the suit without settlement.
As you know, most reality shows are not what they seem to be. Producers who are hungry for fame and wealth often fake plots, and even manufacture relationships (Kanye and Kim, Evelyn and Chad), to get their shows picked up by major networks.
That's So Raven star Kyle Massey thought he was set to appear as Bristol Palin's boyfriend in her new reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's A Tripp, which premiered last night.
Kyle and his mother came up with the concept for the show starring Kyle and Sarah Palin's eldest daughter as lovers. The only problem is, the producers of Bristol's new reality show had other ideas.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, VH1 and Shaq's ex Shaunie O'Neal have axed 3 cast members of the problematic Basketball Wives reality show. If true, it can be assumed that VH1 and Shaunie found 3 new cast members -- who were recruited to be "friends" of the other cast members.
A source told TMZ that Royce Reed, left, Jennifer Williams (right) and Kesha Nichols (center) also got their walking papers -- and will be replaced next season.
TMZ claims Royce was axed because her baby daddy, Dwight Howard, got a judge to force Royce to keep his name out of her mouth. Jennifer was let go because she filed a fake lawsuit against Nia Crooks for slapping her on the show, and Kesha was just too "boring."
If this is true, the women are being fired to make room for new cast members who will breathe life into the show's falling ratings.
Update: George Zimmerman turned himself in to Sanford, Florida police and is now in jail, according to a tweet from his legal team.
The Seminole County jail updated its website to show Zimmerman is now in custody as of 50 minutes ago, and he has $500 on his books. Zimmerman's bond was revoked after Zimmerman and his wife claimed he was indigent and couldn't afford bail. However, recordings of jail house phone calls shows the Zimmerman's had full access to at least $155,000 just days before the bond hearing.
Remember last weekend when the paparazzi caught troubled rapper Kanye West with his pants down around his thighs as he emerged from a chauffeured limo with bestie, Kim Kardashian? Well, Kim has an explanation for that.
"He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.
"It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.
"It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."
Yeah, right, Kim. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the rumors that the show's producers predict your fake relationship with Kanye is not going to be enough to save the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
Music producer Kanye West was seen leaving Kim Kardashian's hotel in NYC today. Poor Kanye. His head was hanging as low as his skinny jeans as he walked towards a parked limo.
Maybe he was at Kim's hotel checking out his new digs where he will be staying as part of the cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
In less than a week Kanye has become the laughing stock of Hollywood. His pals Jay and Beyonce have already informed him that Kim is not welcome in their circle. So any chance Kim (and her mom Kris Jenner) had of using the Beyonce's for ratings just flew out the window.
After that 72-day sham of a wedding to Kris Humphries, the Huffington Post reminds us that Kim famously said she would not have another relationship in front of the cameras. Of course we know she's a liar, but some people need more convincing.
HollywoodLife.com caught up with the top body language expert after Kim and Kanye public displayed their love in NYC at Scott Disick‘s restaurant opening, and she tells us that they’re turning up the heat for the E! cameras!
“No matter what anyone says the body doesn’t lie,” Dr. Glass tells us. “Kanye and Kim may be holding hands and may be all smiles for the camera but the truth is they are looking in different directions which means they are not like minded. There is too much physical space between them. When people are truly into one another you don’t know where one ends and the other begins.”
Even though the two of them are smiling and holding hands Dr. Glass says there’s no chemistry between them.
“There is a stiffness in Kim’s body language,” Dr. Glass the author of Toxic People and Toxic Men adds. “You don’t feel the chemistry between the two of them. No matter how [many] KW earring sets she wears we are not feeling it because neither are they.
While there may be a lot of lust going on behind closed doors, the emotional and mental connection required in a deep relationship seems to be lacking in my view.”
The "Basketball Wives" publicity machine is running on all cylinders -- assisted by corny write ups on TMZ.com.
This entire season of BBQ Wives centers around 2 episodes -- this week's and next week's -- in which Jennifer Williams, Evelyn Lozada, and Evelyn's fake "assistant" Nia, go to war.
Nia fired the first salvo in January by slapping Jennifer (who I'm told will be paid a bonus for fighting). The slap was conveniently filmed by VH1 in January and aired in this week's episode.
Then, yesterday, TMZ reports that Jennifer filed a civil suit against Nia -- in April -- for a slap which occurred in January. Coincidentally, the civil suit was filed after the episode aired. I'm sure the courts don't take lightly to being pimped for television ratings.
How much are you willing to bet this frivolous civil suit will be dropped before it can be tossed out of court?
Anyone with common sense can see that Kim Kardashian needs a miracle to save her reality TV career. Most of America has tuned out and dismissed the Kardashians as a family who will do anything for money and attention.
Just in time for the upcoming season of "Kourtney and Kim Take NY", Kim, who has more tricks up her sleeve than magician Criss Angel, has pulled Kanye West out of her hat. And Kanye is more than happy to play the role of useful idiot to get in good with the Kardashian klan.
Even the most levelheaded Kardashian -- Khloe -- is playing along with Kim and Kanye's publicity stunt.
Stranger things have happened. A pal tells the new Us Weekly, out now, that Jay-Z's close friend and collaborator West, 34, has fallen "genuinely head over heels" for Kardashian, 31, with whom he was photographed gallivanting around NYC late last week.
"It's not a PR stunt," the source insists of the rapper and reality star. "They're perfect for each other. He thinks she's his Beyonce!"
Mirlande Wilson must be the unluckiest woman in Maryland.
Imagine winning part of a $640 million lottery and telling your work lottery pool that you refuse to share the winnings with them because you bought the ticket on your own -- only to end up losing the ticket.
Wilson, a McDonald's worker who claimed to be one of three winners of last week's historic Mega Millions jackpot, now says she can't find the winning ticket.
She told the New York Post: "I have no idea where it is. I’m not sure I have it. I’m still looking for it. I haven’t even looked in my uniform pants yet."
Yesterday, pop singer Rihanna was among several celebrities who used social networking to bring awareness to a viral video that was created by a charity group calling themselves Invisible Children. The charity's goal is to bring notoriety to the brutal Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and its leader Joseph Kony, who allegedly abducts children from their villages and forces them to become soldiers for the LRA.
The charity calls upon celebrities and politicians to help publicize the plight of the child soldiers so that President Obama will continue to fund U.S. troops who are "advising" Ugandan troops on how to capture Kony.
But timing is everything, and the timing of this KONY "movement" has skeptics speaking out about the group's tactics. In November, Foreignaffairs.com published an article criticizing the Invisible Children charity for manipulating the facts and for "exaggerating the scale of LRA abductions and murders" of children.
Another theory floating around is that the KONY movement is just a smokescreen for a grassroots effort to register young voters for the upcoming elections. They say Joseph Kony is already in U.S. custody, and that the Obama administration is waiting for the opportune moment to parade him in front of the cameras.
A loyal reader, who asked not to be identified, thinks this movement is really about the U.S. gaining control of Uganda's rich oil resources.
The Internet is buzzing about Kim Kardashian's generous $200,000 "donation" to charity, which is supposedly double the value of the wedding gifts she received.
But anyone who runs a business knows that charitable donations can be deducted from your income tax. So she really didn't lose a penny.
Kardashian's soon-to-be ex-husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, says Kim's charitable donation is not good enough. He thinks she should give the gifts back too. Humphries was duped by Kim into marrying her for a made-for-TV wedding. The marriage ended 72 days later -- after the taping of her reality show wrapped.
Now we know why Beyonce was in the hospital for so long in January after her surrogate allegedly gave birth to her baby, Blue Ivy. Last night, Beyonce stepped out in public for the first time to attend her husband Jay Z's concert at Carnegie Hall. It was her first public appearance since the baby's birth. No one outside of the Metropolitan New York area even knew Jay Z had a concert last night. Which is a strong indication of the media's decreasing interest in him.
It is obvious from these pics that Beyonce had recent breast enhancement surgery. Beyonce wore a red dress with a plunging neckline so the paparazzi could get good shots of her padding, in a desperate attempt to fool the public into believing she's breast feeding. How pitiful is Beyonce? Well, you won't have time to come up with an answer because the attention whore will be in our faces every day for the next few months -- until the paparazzi grows tired of seeing her.
Last night I was unwinding on social networking website Twitter.com when I decided to have a little fun with reality TV personality, Evelyn Lozada. You see, me, Evelyn and her (very annoying) publicist were cool back when nobody ever heard of her.
It was me who they came to to put out the first rumors about her and Chad Ochocinco being in a relationship. At the time when I started the rumor about them dating, they had only seen each other once (she lived in Florida and Chad was on the west coast filming his show).
Then we fell out over another issue that I won't get into.
Music producer Swizz Beatz, who is married to musician Alicia Keys, is on the run from federal prosecutors, according to the Associated Press. Beatz, real name Kasseem Dean, 33, is listed as the CEO on the website of the Hong Kong-based file sharing website, Megaupload.com, which was shut down by feds today.
The indictment accuses the company of costing copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue from pirated films and other content. The indictment was unsealed Thursday, one day after websites shut down in protest of two congressional proposals intended to thwart the online piracy of copyrighted movies and TV programs.
Yesterday, Swizz Beatz was unmasked as the CEO/owner of the world's largest file sharing website by the NY Post, which alleged that Beatz got some of his celebrity friends to appear in a star-studded promotional vehicle for Megaupload.com.
High powered celebrities such as Sean "Diddy" Combs, Kanye West, Floyd Mayweather, Serena Williams and others are seen happily promoting the illegal service in the video.
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?

As most of you know (unless you've been living under a rock) Beyonce's surrogate mother gave birth to the singer's first baby at an upper East side hospital in NY over the weekend.
The baby, named Blue Ivy (after Jay Z's album Blueprint and Beyonce's album, '4'), was born by c-section on Saturday afternoon at Lenox Hill hospital. A hospital source dismissed rumors that Beyonce and Jay rented an entire hospital floor for $1.3 million.
"We don't have entire floors sitting empty at Lenox Hill," scoffed the source. Our source told us Beyonce and Jay Z were charged the same amount for services as any other patient. If anything, they spent that amount just on security," she said.
Our source confirmed that the narcissistic couple actually shared the maternity ward with other expectant mothers.
According to the NY Daily News, Beyonce and her entourage occupied a vast area of the maternity wing, which caused problems for visitors attempting to see their newborns in the Neonatal ICU unit on the same floor.
Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn (pictured at right) said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by Beyoncé’s bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub.
Coulon griped that he’s been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple’s private security.
He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out.
“Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” said Coulon, a contractor from Bedford-Stuyvesant.
“They should have been more strategic about it,” he said. “These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology. Source
Twitter.com was all abuzz with news of Beyonce and Jay Z's daughter Blue Ivy's arrival on Saturday. Many of my followers tweeted the link to this video showing E! Television footage of Beyonce (at around 10 months gestation) hopping into her custom SUV with very little effort -- as if she had already dropped her load the day before!
After viewing the video myself, I agree with my followers: she does not look pregnant, nor does she move like a pregnant woman who is about to deliver her precious cargo in less than 48 hours.
Beyonce and Jay Z have managed to pull the wool over the gullible national media's eyes, but my readers were never fooled!
We have more information for you on the birth of Beyonce's first child from TMZ.com, and our Lenox Hill hospital source.
According to our source, Beyonce and her surrogate were admitted to the upper East side hospital on the same maternity floor. Other women in labor were also admitted to the floor despite rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z rented the entire floor for an absurd $1.3 million.
Our source said, "Lenox Hill does not turn away expectant mothers to cater to the needs of celebrities."
The NY Daily News confirmed that Beyonce was admitted to the hospital under the name Ingrid Jackson. But we're told the surrogate mother was also admitted to Lenox Hill under an assumed alias.
According to TMZ.com, hospital brass held a meeting leading up to the delivery to discuss a security plan for the birth. The meeting between execs and security was held Friday afternoon and strict security was in place almost immediately, preparing for the Saturday delivery.
Such an elaborate security plan was required to conceal the fact that Beyonce was not the one giving birth. Security cameras were taped over, or turned off -- which is a violation of hospital policies.
Our source said the baby girl was delivered via c-section while the mother was given an epidural to block the pain. The birth mother was allowed to briefly hold the baby and then the baby was handed off to Beyonce who waited in an adjoining room.
Rumors continue to run rampant as Beyonce fans, and even members of the once-respected national media, wonder if Beyonce is in labor and about to give birth.
One gossip blog, which has zero credibility, claims Beyonce is giving birth any minute now at Manhattan's St. Luke's-Roosevelt hospital. In fact, if you rely on the shaky word of that unreliable gossip blog, Beyonce has been in labor at St. Luke's-Roosevelt for 4 days now.
I was a young nurse in 1989 when I took a traveling assignment to NY to work at New York Cornell Medical Center for 6 months. At the end of my assignment -- as I packed my bags to leave the harsh, inhospitable environment of New York forever -- I received a phone call from my travel agency asking if I would be willing to cross the picket line at St. Luke's-Roosevelt hospital where the nurses had gone on strike.
Just as we suspected: those pics of a bloated, baby whale Beyonce shopping at Bergdorf Goodman were not her. As you can see from the pics below of Bey shopping at Curve in NYC, her nose is not spread across her face, and she hasn't picked up a pound anywhere other than her midsection.
In her shameless, never-ending campaign to stay relevant, Beyonce covers this month's issue of Jones Magazine. Her baby bump is not visible in this cover shot, meaning she removed her prosthetic -- or she knew she was going to be pregnant when these pics were taken. It's interesting that she's talking about motherhood when she isn't even pregnant in these pics!
“I believe that parents prepare their kids for the moment that they’re on their own: at this point, I am taking everything my dad and my mother have taught me, and I’m able to do things my way,” she says.
The cover was shot on the terrace of the Maurice in Paris, France by photographer Greg Gex.
Eddie Murphy's ex-wife, Nicole Murphy, is a the victim of a suave con artist who walked away with a cool $7 million -- half of Nicole's settlement in her divorce from Murphy. According to published reports, Troy David Stratos, was arrested early Tuesday in Southern California and charged with 11 counts of wire and mail fraud, two counts of money laundering and one count of obstruction of justice.
Stratos, who changed his name from Stafford, is reportedly one of Nicole's old high school boyfriends. That explains why she put so much trust in him.
The indictment claims Stratos persuaded Nicole to invest the proceeds of her big-money divorce overseas, where she would earn a higher rate of return. He also convinced Nicole to put her Granite Bay, CA house up for sale. Stratos told her he had wealthy Middle Eastern royal families who were interested in buying the house.
He talked her into leasing luxury Rolls-Royce and BMW automobiles to make the property look more attractive. Stratos told Nicole, who wasn't named in the indictment, that he would include the cars with the sale of the house as a package deal.
But investigators say there were no Middle Eastern investors, and the con artist never put the house up for sale. Instead, Stratos secretly moved into the house and drove the luxury cars as if they were his.
Thom Mrozek, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, said Stratos has agreed to be returned to Sacramento to face the charges. He is currently being held without bond pending a bail hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
An anonymous reader sent in these pics of Beyonce shopping for baby girl clothes at Bergdorf Goodman yesterday. The images appear to be screen captures from a video monitor. The reader was shocked to see how much weight Beyonce had gained in just a matter of days. But we're not surprised because Beyonce will go to any lengths to fool the public into believing she's pregnant. It is already a foregone conclusion that Beyonce is not pregnant -- but her surrogate is. If and when Beyonce "delivers" her "baby", it won't be in a legally sanctioned hospital or clinic. And the "doctor" who delivers the "baby" will be on Jay Z and Bey's payroll.
Beer hall singer Beyonce, 30, was spotted shopping with her mother, Tina Knowles, at the Agent Provocateur store in West Hollywood yesterday. Beyonce is on the west coast with her husband Jay Z who is currently performing with Kanye West on the Watch The Throne tour. This means that Bey, who is due to deliver something this month, is still flying on planes in her third trimester.
Any real mother knows that flying at high altitudes in her 3rd trimester puts the fetus at risk, not to mention it can be life threatening for mother and baby.
Gawker.com ran a Blind Item today about a surrogate mother who is living with her toddler in a Lower West Side apartment in Manhattan. The woman is reportedly 8 months pregnant, and looks bigger than Beyonce, who is supposed to be 9 months pregnant. Her rent is being paid for by an unidentified couple. The woman is described as "in her late twenties, and has thick, dark brown hair and medium-colored skin." And there is reportedly a "a full-time staff person and there is always a doctor or nurse on call."
It was one of those astonishing moments when a celebrity is caught on national television like a deer in the proverbial headlights. It occurred when ABC anchor Katie Couric, who was interviewing the cagey singer Beyonce, reached over, and without warning rubbed the baby bump that has been at the center of controversy for months.
Beyonce appeared startled as she reached down reflexively when Katie copped a feel. "I'm sorry, am I allowed to do that?" Katie asked as she snatched her hand back.
When a woman caresses another woman's baby bump, the moment usually passes quickly between the two women.
But Katie's hand returned to groping Beyonce's baby bump a second time -- as if Katie wasn't confident that what she felt the first time was actually a human baby.
It was clear that Katie was performing a tactile examination of Beyonce's baby bump, which was first introduced to the world in September at the MTV VMAs. Prior to that, no one knew the 30-year-old was pregnant.
Judging from Couric's reaction afterwards, it was clear that she still had her doubts that Beyonce's baby bump was real. But Couric never expressed those doubts on the air. We wish we could have been a fly on the wall when Katie told her friends what she really thought about the baby bump!
We told you last month that the national media weren't all that thrilled that Bey tricked them by showing up pregnant one day, when she had been in the public eye all along. We told you that there would be some form of retaliation from the tabloids in response to Beyonce's blatant manipulation tactics.
But this all-out attack on Beyonce's credibility by a national music network seems bizarre when you consider their usual ersatz approach to Beyonce coverage in the past.
The article starts off innocently enough -- "Beyonce is one smart cookie". But then the writer launches into an SR-worthy critical analysis of Beyonce's baby bump -- complete with images showing the bump's ridiculous progression from zero to 5 months.
*(We highlighted the particularly biting comments for emphasis!)
Yes, pregnancy hits everyone a little differently, every lady gains different amounts of weight and begins to show at different times, but does Beyonce look five months pregnant in the first image [above] (from August 18)?
Which brings us to the second and third pictures in the above image. Again, a lot can happen in three weeks in the life of a pregnant woman, and we hold degrees in English and communications and not obstetrics so we are not experts in pregnancy, but the middle image is from Beyonce's performance at the MTV Video Music awards on August 28 and the third image is from the "Countdown" set video on Sept. 23. It's a dramatic difference.
It's also worth pointing out that the first image and the third image in the above photo were taken one month and five days apart.
It warmed the cockles of our hearts to see a national media outlet going IN on Beyonce. We only hope that more journalists will continue to expose her for the fraud that she is.
Oh what tangled webs we weave, when first we practice to deceive . . .
After months of lies, trickery and deceit, singer Beyonce has released a new video to further manipulate the media and her crazy Stans.
Remember I told you last month that I'd spoken at length with a source who works for a mainstream publication?
Well, according to the source, who begged for anonymity, it was determined through the coordinated efforts of other mainstream publications and photo wire services, that Beyonce has not been seen or photographed entering or leaving a doctor's office for prenatal care over the past 6 months.
We've seen many paparazzi photos of Beyonce entering and leaving several office buildings in NYC, but sources confirm there are no obstetrics or gynecology offices located in those buildings.
Anyone who has ever given birth over the last 100 years knows that prenatal visits are a mandatory requirement for the health of any baby. But even though Beyonce now claims to be 8 months pregnant (lol) -- she has not been seen visiting a doctor's office every week, or even bi-weekly, as is the norm for a woman in the 3rd trimester.
But she has been seen getting on planes and flying in her 3rd trimester, even though there is an increased risk of developing blood clots on airplanes when flying long distances.
This is only the latest in a series of missteps by Beyonce since she surprised the world with her magical "pregnancy" on the MTV VMAs in September.
Beyonce, 30, and her inflatable baby bump device attended the premiere of her 'Beyonce Live at The Roseland' DVD screening at the Paris Theater in NYC on Sunday, Nov 20. While most of the fawning public has accepted that Beyonce is pregnant, it's hard to ignore the disparities in the above photos, which were taken just days apart. My attorney, Precious Anderson-Scott of the Anderson Firm, is due to deliver her baby in February -- just like Beyonce. But unlike Beyonce, Precious' baby bump is consistent in size and shape, whether she's sitting or standing.
Anyway, the entire concert is now available on VEVO. But if you want your own keepsake copy, the 2-disc DVD of Live at Roseland: The Elements of 4, will be in stores on Nov. 29.
Watch Beyonce perform "End Of Time" and "I Was Here" from her Live at Roseland concert after the break.
According to the National Enquirer, Kris Humphries is ignoring that 30-page prenup requiring him to keep his mouth shut about Kim's silicone loaded butt.
KIM KARDASHIAN’s big booty is a big, fat fake, sources say – and her estranged hubby KRIS HUMPHRIES is threatening to expose the truth!
The reality TV sexpot insists her bubble butt is all natural . . . But some insiders claim the curvy 31-year-old beauty uses butt pads and say Kris filmed a video that proves his estranged wife’s prized posterior is phony!
Kris remarked to pals that, while he loves Kim’s shapely butt, it’s not the same as what you see on the red carpet…or TV.
“Kris told his buddies that it takes a lot of work for Kim to make her bottom look as good as it does,” said a source. “He revealed all her secrets – how she uses ‘booty pads,’ Spanx and other things to enhance it. When she takes off the Spanx, the pads and everything else, it’s not the same.
“He knows what the real thing looks like – because he’s recorded it on his cell phone camera!”
