When the news broke in July about the head butt that sent reality TV star Evelyn Lozada to a Florida hospital for stitches, one person who wasn’t entirely sympathetic to Lozada’s pain and suffering was RHOA star NeNe Leakes.

Lozada’s ‘husband’ Chad Johnson, 34, was arrested for allegedly head butting his wife of 41 days during an argument over a condom receipt in August. Johnson subsequently lost his job as a wide receiver with the Miami Dolphins football team — along with lucrative endorsements. He remains unemployed.

When asked if she reached out to Evelyn in an interview with Essence mag, NeNe said, “I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn’t.”

  • Miami Heat superstar LeBron James tweeted this pic of himself wearing his gold medal after Team USA defeated Spain 107-100 in final round play at the 2012 Olympics on Sunday. The win didn’t come easy for the world’s #1 team. They had to come from behind to secure the win against Pau Gasol and Spain’s best playmakers.

    “We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We didn’t want it easy,” LeBron James said. “A lot of teams have won gold easy. We didn’t want it that way. We’re a competitive team, and we love when it gets tight. That’s when our will and determination kind of shows. It was the same way in ’08.”

    The United States won the gold race, taking home 46 of the precious metals.

    Unlike Sean Combs, I bet rapper 2 Chainz pays his bills. The rapper was wrongly detained by New York’s finest when they mistook 2 Chainz’s rap accessory for a dangerous weapon at NY’s LaGuardia airport.

    2 Chainz, formerly Tity Boi, was released after the po-po examined the 4-finger ring chain, which police assumed was an illegal pair of brass knuckles.

    “They tried to assassinate my character, they tried to assassinate my swag,” 2 Chainz told MTV News in an exclusive telephone interview. “It was just a negative dilemma earlier where someone misconstrued a piece of jewelry for a weapon and stuff.”

    Despite Atlanta’s forecast which called for heavy thunderstorms, the rain didn’t put a damper on the LudaDay Weekend festivities. The biggest draw of the LudaDay Weekend, which ends today, was the celebrity basketball game held Sunday at Morehouse’s Forbes Arena. Pop star Justin Bieber, 17, and his blue team took on the red team of the Ludacris Foundation All-Stars, featuring NBA mega stars Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, John Wall, and singer Teyana Taylor, among others.

    Even with all that star power on the court — Bieber and his team of unknowns still managed to eke out a victory in front of the capacity crowd at Morehouse. The final score was a close 134-132. All proceeds from the game will benefit the Ludacris Foundation which helps disadvantaged youth in the metro area. Luda later tweeted that the game raised $10,000!

    Congratulations to Shannon Brown and Monica for tying the knot for a second time in front of family and friends on Saturday!

    As you know, Mo and Shannon married in secret at their California home in November of last year. This time around, they invited hundreds of guests to watch them jump the broom!

    First, I want to address all the lies that began filtering out just minutes after the couple said “I do.”

    Yes, Monica and Shannon’s good friends, Khloe and Lamar Odom missed the wedding due to circumstances beyond their control.

    The reason Khloe wasn’t there was because she and Lamar had a death in the family. Lamar’s cousin was murdered the night before the wedding and they had to drop everything and fly back to the East Coast. Everybody at the wedding knew about the tragedy. Monica has spoken to Khloe and Khloe told her she would have given anything to attend Mo’s special day.

    Khloe told friends “I would never want anybody to think I would just miss their wedding.”

    Khloe is very down to earth, and the two women are very close. Khloe always looked after ‘Melo and Lil Rocko at the Lakers games. The friends actually met before Monica met Shannon. Our condolences go out to Khloe and Lamar.

    There was also a rumor that Kobe’s wife, Vanessa, didn’t attend the wedding.

    Not only was Kobe’s wife the first one at the wedding, but she stepped up to fill Khloe’s role once she found out what had happened! Vanessa took a helicopter from Kobe’s basketball camp in Santa Barbara to be in the wedding.

    Monica’s friend Keyshia Cole wasn’t there because she is currently on tour.

    Even by Hollywood’s standards, security was extremely tight. Yes, guests were asked to walk through metal detectors at the wedding. That was because more than 40 of the invitations were stolen prior to the wedding, and Monica wanted to make sure her invited guests were safe since they were in downtown Los Angeles.

    In contrast to T.I. and Tiny’s wedding where inconsiderate guests uploaded grainy photos to Twitter.com, Monica and Shannon made sure their wedding was paparazzi and Twitter-free. The Exclusive photos of the wedding will be released next week when Mo and Shannon return from their honeymoon!

    Speaking of which, Mo’s cousin Ludacris could not attend the wedding because he was performing in concert out of state.

    But Luda’s girlfriend Fab was one of Mo’s bridesmaids. And Luda ordered his pilot to gas up his private jet to fly Monica and Shannon to their surprise honeymoon from Atlanta this morning (Shannon and Mo don’t even know where they’re going)!
