Disruptive airline passenger

The skies weren't so friendly for a drunken passenger on board a New York-bound intercontinental flight who was set upon by the other passengers for attacking a woman and ranting that the plane was going to crash.

The unidentified passenger became disruptive after "drinking all of his duty free liquor on the flight from Iceland to JFK yesterday," wrote passenger Andy Ellwood, who took the above photo.

But the other passengers got him together by duct taping him to a seat and babysitting him for the rest of the flight.

Troubled singer Rihanna has found a new love, according to the wire services. Rihanna, 24, embarked on a much-needed vacation in Sardinia over the weekend -- but she wasn't alone. Instead of her normal crew of lonely single ladies, Rihanna was accompanied on a boat by a muscular Pittbull look-a-like (Pittbull is a Latino Miami rapper, in case you've never heard of him).

No word on who her new paramour is, but judging from Rihanna's ecstatic tweets, she seems to be smitten by him. A jubilant RiRi sang his praises in a series of tweets on her verified Twitter page this morning.

Update: Loyal reader Zoi M. writes, "Sandra, those are the words to Mary Marys, gospel group, song Be Happy that Rihanna tweeted. So yes she is talking about finding God. When you gone let me join!!"

BET 106 & Park co-host Rocsi Diaz will soon be unemployed. But she has a sugar daddy in 50-something comedian Eddie Murphy (at least for now). Rocsi was spotted stretching out a teeny string bikini in Maui, Hawaii on Tuesday. The industry trampoline was all smiles as she frolicked in the ocean with Eddie's kids, Myles and Shayne Murphy.

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 So please do not quote me.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.

Nothing surprises me anymore. Two Chicago parents were arrested and charged with child endangerment after they left their 9-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son at home while they jetted to Vegas for two days.

Shanpreta Howard and Antowain Johnson turned themselves in to police on Tuesday, even though they left Chicago on the evening of Wednesday, February 22 -- and did not return until Friday afternoon.

While in Vegas, Howard and Johnson visited a storefront chapel where they renewed their vows. They also updated their facebook status frequently with photos and notes about their trip.

Johnson even updated his status at one point to say: "Bout to hit the Strip Club."

R&B crooner Usher Raymond recently visited the Motherland S. Africa with his producer, Rico Love. One fan emailed Sandrarose.com to inquire about a woman who was blurred out of one of the photos that Usher tweeted to his 3 million followers on Twitter.com on Wednesday. In the photo, Usher is seen sitting at a table with Rico and a LSLH woman whose features are indeed blurred out. But there is a simple explanation for that. View the email, the photo, and my response after the break.

According to celebrity blogger JustJared, troubled singer Rihanna just touched down in Los Angeles after spending 2 works working in London. Rihanna arrived at LAX with her trusted assistant Melissa. She looked exhausted as the two women walked arm-in-arm while the paparazzi snapped away.

As you read here on Sandrarose.com, Rihanna has rekindled her romance with her abusive boyfriend Chris Brown. Despite all the reports about Brown sticking by the side of his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche, my sources tell me that Rihanna and Brown have been burning up the phone lines, calling and texting each other. Rumor has it that Rihanna plans to have some sort of showdown with Karrueche now she's back in LA.

We hope there won't be any violence like the last time.

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."

Music producer Swizz Beatz narrowly missed doing federal time on piracy charges two weeks ago. The 33-year-old deadbeat dad flossed like he was making millions off the now defunct Megaupload.com content storage website. But as it turns out, Swizz allowed the website's real owner to use his name and likeness on the website -- for free... or so his lawyer says. Of course the truth will be revealed in due time.

Yesterday, a grateful Swizz and his gorgeous wife, Alicia Keys jetted to the sandy beaches of Hawaii with their adorable 15-month-old son, Egypt, for a little relaxation.

Rihanna, 23, is still on holiday in her native Barbados. She was spotted yesterday splashing in the surf with her family and friends at the beach. Rihanna and her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, raised eyebrows yesterday when they expressed their undying love for each other on the social networking website Twitter.com. Rihanna is typical of an abused woman who forms an unhealthy attachment to her abuser, even after he has rearranged her face, because she lacks the self esteem to move on.

Beyonce Knowles-Carter's baby sister, Solange Knowles, has finally found a man willing to stick around for more than a month. Okay, that was harsh. My apologies for that. But Solange has had difficulty keeping a man in the past. According to BlogXilla, Solange and her boyfriend, Allen, spent a month in Paris, France with Jules, her son from a previous relationship.

Solange posted photos from her French vacation on her blog. Since this is a gossip blog where speculation runs rampant, we wonder if Allan has a job, or if he's sponging off of Solange who is sponging off of her sister Beyonce?

Yesterday we posted pics of Gabrielle Union, 39, in a string bikini playing in the surf on Miami Beach with Dwyane Wade's sons, Zion and Zaire. What we didn't know at the time was that LeBron James' baby mama, Savannah Brinson, 25, and her sons, were with Gabby on the beach.

The reason being is that Savannah was covered from head to toe in a grey hoodie with black jogging pants in 80 degree weather.

According to sources in Miami, Savannah took offense at people criticizing her for trying to keep up with her more promiscuous friends who don't care how they dress in public (such as La La Anthony). Friends say the disapproval stung Savannah and she made a vow never to show her skin in public again -- or at least until her sons are fully grown with wives of their own.

We don't know how true that is, but it does seem that Savannah is dressing more respectfully these days. Good for her!

R&B Diva Monica and NBA star Shannon Brown celebrated their 1st year together as man and wife yesterday at the upscale
Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, famed for its bucolic setting on Lake Oconee in Greensboro, Georgia.

In a series of tweets on their Twitter.com accounts yesterday, Shannon and Monica expressed their love and affection for each other.

Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah, 26, was spotted splashing in the surf on Miami Beach yesterday. Unlike some of the league's bench players -- such as Matt Barnes of the Lakers -- the NBA lockout isn't hurting Noah financially. As you know, Noah is the son of tennis great Yannick Noah.


This is not the first time that Lisa Bonet's sexy actor husband Jason Momoa has made our Morning Wood section. The 6 ft former model turned heads while vacationing in his native Hawaii with his 43-year-old wife over the weekend. Jason spent the day paddle boarding in the waves off Hawaii's beautiful beaches. Once out of the water, he carried the large paddle board over his shoulder like it weighed a feather. Jason and Lisa have two children together, a daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, 4, and a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, who turns 3 in December. Lisa has a grown daughter, Zoe Kravitz, by singer Lenny Kravitz.

Good morning! Today we decided to combine Morning Wood & Morning Glory posts for you ladies and gents. We hope you and your family are enjoying your Labor Day weekend. Here in Atlanta it's a cloudy 75 degrees with a 60% chance of thunderstorms. It's not a good day for BBQs or hitting the beach. Fortunately, the weather in Miami was beautiful for 38-year-old Cougar Gabrielle Union, who spent quality time with her boy toy, NBA star Dwayne Wade, 29, and his two sons, Zaire, 9, and Zion, 4, along with their young friends during a family outing on Miami beach on Sunday. Wade won full custody of his sons following a bitter child custody battle with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. The couple divorced in 2007.

Gabby wore a string bikini with the word HEAT emblazoned on her backside. Wade plays for the struggling Miami Heat who suffered an embarrassing loss in the 2011 NBA Finals to the lowly Dallas Mavericks. But things will be much different in 2012 if the owners ever come to an agreement and lift the NBA lockout.

Ladies, watch your girlfriends around your men. Especially if she can never keep a man for herself. Always remember -- unless she is a lesbian -- she is your competition. She is paying close attention to your every move. She's taking notes and positioning herself to take advantage of your mistakes. Watch her!

Update: according to a loyal reader, the woman pictured above with D. Wade and Gabby is actress Essence Atkins, who was accompanied by her husband, Jaime Mendez, whom she met on Match.com (thanks blkmiami!). But my advice still stands: watch those thirsty chicks around your man.

We know from that classic sex tape with her e-boyfriend Ray J that Kim Kardashian can easily handle a man of any size. But this photo of newlyweds Kris and Kim Kardashian dry humping near the pool of their hotel in Italy is totally confusing. Where are her legs?

As you know, Kim and Kris tied the knot on Saturday in an over-the-top wedding that was extravagant even by Hollywood standards. The lovebirds will wrap up their honeymoon this weekend and fly back to New York where they plan to attend another wedding reception for themselves thrown by a friend.

According to our confidential source within troubled singer Rihanna's camp, the 23-year-old Bajan beauty is drowning her sorrows in expensive champagne. The source said Rihanna is "drunk more than she's sober."

The source said Rihanna, who is vacationing with friends in Portofino, Italy, begins her days by either getting high off pot or drunk.

The situation has gotten so bad that, in order to protect their investment, Rihanna's handlers surround her with loyal friends from her native Barbados --because one friend alone can't stop her from hurting herself. Her friends counsel her about drinking in moderation but she won't listen. She's like a brat who does whatever she wants.

"It's a group effort; her friends watch how much liquor she consumes, and if she doesn't stop drinking they gang up on her," said the source.

Ironically, Rihanna just recently wrapped shooting a music video for her current hit single "Cheers (I'll Drink To That)". She was spotted snorkeling earlier today. Hopefully, she was sober.

When a rare 5.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Washington DC Tuesday, President Obama, whose approval rating is at a record low 38%, was on a golf course in affluent Martha's Vineyard where he's vacationing with his family.

This AP photo shows the exact moment when President Obama's golf swing was interrupted by a White House aide who called to tell him that the White House was still standing. The media was kept at a respectable distance from Mr. Obama but reporters overheard him say, "this couldn't wait until I finished my 18 holes?"

OK I'm kidding about that last part.

Before resuming his golf game, Mr. Obama conferred with top aides, including his homeland security secretary, national security adviser and disaster response chief.

It was Mr. Obama's 3rd golf outing since arriving in Martha's Vineyard for a 10-day vacation on Thursday.

According to E! Online, 28-year-old rapper Lil Wayne fell and bumped his head while skateboarding with rapper Corey Gunz at Transitions Ramp Park in Dearborn Heights, Michigan yesterday morning. E! Online reports that Weezy required several stitches to close the gaping gash. Shouldn't he be used to falling on his head by now? Tuck and roll next time Weezy!

The platinum-selling rapper was admitted to DePaul Health Center with a nasty cut on his forehead after wiping out at a skateboarding park near the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, where he had just finished giving a concert.

Fans will be happy to hear however that Lil Wayne is doing fine.

"The Lou was good but I busted my fuggin head at the sk8park! 9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people," the hip-hopster tweeted after doctors patched him up. Source

Troubled singer Rihanna was seen blowing kisses at the paparazzi who keep her relevant as she boarded a luxury yacht in Saint Laurent du Var in the south of France today.

Two days ago, Rihanna displayed her disturbing erotic stage routine at the V Festival at Weston Park, Staffordshire, UK. Friends say the once bubbly Barbadan chanteuse has descended into the pits of mental depression fueled by bouts of alcoholism and drug use. I hope she can get it together for her mother's sake.

While some of the country was fixated on a wedding that is destined to end in divorce, U.S. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama did nothing to diminish reports that their own marriage is on the rocks. For starters, the couple arrived on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts on Friday in separate jets -- sparking rumors of discord between the commander-in-chief and his wife. Then the media made much ado about this REUTERS photo showing Mrs. Obama icily shutting her husband out while listening to music on her iPod as they left their vacation home yesterday. It was one of the rare times the Obamas were seen together publicly on the well-to-do island.

What do you kids think of the Obamas' apparent marital problems?

Singer Seal gets the distinction of being our Morning Wood today! Even with my decidedly lesbian eyes, I can see that Seal is one gorgeous specimen from the neck down! The women must envy supermodel Heidi Klum for snagging him. Seal took Heidi and their children on vacation to Porto Cervo, Sardinia, Italy earlier this week. If you're driving while reading this post, please try not to run your car up a pole! (Pun intended).

During a recent interview with FOX News Host Great Van Susteran, billionaire hotel magnate Donald Trump discussed President Barack Obama's work ethic -- or lack thereof.

Van Susteran referred to a tweet that The Donald sent on his Twitter page about Obama's nonstop vacations on the tax payers dime.

Trump responded:

Well, the fact is, he takes more vacations than any human being I've ever seen. They used to complain about George Bush, but I understand he's already exceeded George Bush and we're not even through the year. So he likes vacation.

The Donald continued:

...it sends a bad message. Here we have a country that really is going to hell in a handbasket. Let's not kid ourselves. What's happening to this country is horrible. All over the world, they're talking about it. And we have a president that's constantly -- whether it's Martha's Vineyard or someplace else, constantly on vacation. I mean, all the time he's on vacation! So I think it sends a very, very bad message. We have to work in this country to bring it back.

Next week Obama and his family will make their annual trek to Martha's Vineyard for a 10-day vacation -- against the advice of Democratic leaders. The Obama family excursion to the playground of the affluent, non-working, old money rich adds to the nearly 60 days of vacations that Michelle Obama herself has already taken this year! That's two months of vacations when most hard working stiffs are lucky to get 2 weeks of vacation per year.

The Obamas' refusal to cancel their Martha's Vineyard vacation despite the economic turmoil and declining jobless rate sends a clear message to voters in next year's elections.

"Single Ladies" star LisaRaye, who is currently on tour in Italy (no doubt spending that "Single Ladies" cash), was forced to interrupt her vacation yesterday to respond to the backlash she received from Stacey Dash fans on Facebook.

As you know, there are unsubstantiated rumors circulating about Dash's abrupt termination from the popular VH1 show. LisaRaye posted this message to her Facebook wall:

As everyone know I am in Italy vacationing. I was just made aware of the lies that are being spread by Mediatakeout and other blogs that like to create false stories. I was not even aware that Stacy Dash had been fired from Single Ladies. Furthermore if she has been fired that is a network decision. I don't have the power to get her fired nor do I have any beef with her. Now im going to go continue enjoying my vacation!

Stacy Littlejohn, the show's principal writer and executive producer, also responded to the grilling on LisaRaye's Facebook:

LisaRaye is a very strong woman and we love her, but she does not have that kind of power, nor at any time did she seek to influence any casting decisions. Furthermore, no cast member of Single Ladies has the power to get another cast member fired. the 6th grade back-stabbing that LisaRaye's being accused of is completely the creation of uninformed, instigating internet gossip. Please don't buy into it. Let's just celebrate that we have a Season 2 coming!!!!

But why would anyone think LisaRaye had anything to do with Dash's dismissal from the show when LisaRaye is just a cast member herself? If people on Facebook are this dumb I'm glad I don't have a Facebook page.

Anyway, LisaRaye tweeted these photos from her vacation. Enjoy!

Are we the only ones who notice actress Gabrielle Union's dramatic weight loss? We don't keep tabs on her, but it's easy to see that Gabby weighs a lot less now than she did last month. We hope she isn't on one of those fad liquid diets? The 38-year-old tweeted these shocking vacation photos following a recent trip to China with her beau, Dwyane Wade.

According to Jill, Wade was in China on official Jordan, Gatorade and Hublot (luxury watchmaker) business. In addition to touring Biejing and Shanghai, they climbed the Great wall of China together. Wade, who plays for the Miami Heat, earned tens of millions of dollars in endorsement fees for this trip.

Rihanna was spotted hanging her head low after coming off a 3-day drunken binge in Barbados. Rihanna's freaky, slutty behavior is the talk of the industry right now. She was spotted relaxing with her little brother and family and friends today on a beach in Barbados.
