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!!"

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 So please do not quote me.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."

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.
