Rosario Dawson says she's "in love" with long shot presidential candidate Cory Booker. The 40-year-old actress and the New Jersey senator opened up about their relationship to The Washington Post.

"I'm in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting," Dawson gushed.

"Look, both of us, you know, we've had relationships," Booker added, "but I'm not sure if I've ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable."

Despite their declarations of love, Twitter users remained unconvinced that they are a heterosexual couple. Many insist Dawson is Booker's beard.

The slang "beard" is defined loosely as someone of the opposite sex who is hired or volunteers to help a homosexual pretend to be heterosexual.

Booker, 50, has been hounded by homosexual rumors for over 2 decades.

As far as anyone can tell, he has never had a serious relationship with a biological female.

Which explains why the then 49-year-old politician described behaving like an awkward schoolboy when they bumped into each other at an event in 2018.

"I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours," he recalled. "I had trouble asking for her phone number... I think I said something really stupid like, 'Uh, how would I get in touch with you?' And she mercifully said something like, 'Oh, you want my phone number?' And my insides were like, 'Hell, yeah!'"

But Twitter users are quick to point out their awkward body language and other discrepancies.

"Rosario Dawson may never win an Oscar but she's a shoe in for [the] Best Beard Award.," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user tweeted, "Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards."

And a third user tweeted: "Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

But Booker is already dreaming of a wedding in the Rose Garden of the White House - if by some miracle he wins the Democratic nomination.

Jeannie Mai believes she has found the love of her life in Atlanta rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, 42.

The Real co-host gushed about Jeezy in Wednesday's episode.

"I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," Mai, 40, told her co-hosts, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry as well as guest-host Tisha Campbell.

Mai, who broke into tears, said her standards were low for her marriage to Freddy Harteis, 42.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum," she said before adding she doesn't place all of the blame on her ex.

She suggested that there was an element of jealousy in their marriage and that her TV success may have made Harteis feel inadequate.

"When [Harteis] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, that's great, he supports me! That to me is my standard of support."

She said it wasn't until she met Jeezy that she realized she deserved more.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic..." Mai said as she broke down crying.

"I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport," Mai said of the "Put On" rapper. "He was like 'are you kidding?' I want to see you off.'"

"You can blame [your exes] but just be mindful of your standards," Mai cautioned the audience.

Mai said she upgraded herself when she met Jeezy, a Libra who has a history of failed relationships with women.

Oprah Winfrey says she has "not had one regret" over her decision not to marry Stedman Graham or have children.

Oprah met the love of her life, Stedman Graham, at a charity event in 1986, after enduring years of failed relationships with emotionally unavailable and married men.

Oprah was so distraught over losing one boyfriend, that she got on her knees and begged him to stay.

"I thought I was worthless without him. The more he rejected me, the more I wanted him. I felt depleted, powerless. At the end, I was down on the floor on my knees groveling and pleading with him" she said.

The men Oprah has loved and lost included Roger Ebert and John Tesh, who broke up with her over the pressure of being in an interracial relationship.

In the latest issue of People Magazine, the 65-year-old media mogul insisted she's glad she and Stedman, 68, didn't tie the knot, because it would never last.

"No question about it - we would not stay married, because of what that would have meant to him, and I would have had my own ideas about it," The Color Purple star shared. "I have not had one regret about that."

Of her decision to not have children, she said: "At one point in Chicago I had bought an additional apartment because I was thinking, 'Well, if we get married, I'm going to need room for children'.

Oprah admitted she didn't possess "the depth of responsibility and sacrifice that is actually required to be a mother."

She encountered many "messed up people" while working on The Oprah Winfrey Show. People who made her aware of her own inadequacies, which discouraged her from starting her own family.

"I realized, 'Whoa, I'm talking to a lot of messed up people, and they are messed up because they had mothers and fathers who were not aware of how serious that job is,'" Oprah said. "I don't have the ability to compartmentalize the way I see other women do."

The TV mogul filled the void through her philanthropic efforts. She's donated tens of millions of dollars to HBCU schools, including a $13 million donation to Morehouse College earlier this week.

"I also believe that part of the reason why I don't have regrets is because I got to fulfill it in the way that was best for me: the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa," she said.

"Those girls fill that maternal role that I perhaps would have had. In fact, they overfill — I’m overflowed with maternal."

Adele Adkins fans say she is jumping from the frying pan into the fire by dating grime star Skepta so soon after filing for divorce from her baby's father.

Adele is reportedly dating the British grime star after her expected split from her inattentive husband Simon Konecki.

WENN.com

The "Hello" singer, 31, is said to have been out on a number of dates with the musician - including for his 37th birthday last month. According to WENN.com, friends of the pair are "hoping and predicting" that they go on to become a "great couple".

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up."

"They have a close bond and there's definitely a special connection," the insider continued. "They're spending more and more time together. Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day."

But her fans worry that Skepta is a promiscuous man with an untold number of lonely females left in his wake.

This is the same Skepta who posed half naked on the cover of British GQ magazine with former supermodel Naomi Campbell last year, prompting rumors that they were dating. It was later reported that they broke up, most likely due to the 12-year difference in their ages.

Even though Adele's friends are hoping for a Love match, both Adele and the Shutdown star are said to be focusing on their children as their main priority.

The "Rolling in the Deep" star shares son Angelo with Simon, and Skepta - whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, Jr. - became a father to daughter River last November.

The rumored couple have been pals for several years (though both were in relationships). The grime star told ES Magazine back in 2016: "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going."

The pop singer, who was raised by a single mom, filed for divorce from Simon last month, with both parties seeking joint custody of Angelo, and agreeing to settle financial issues in "private mediation".

Simon is expected to walk away with half of Adele's net worth.

Pregnant singer Cassie Ventura, 33, now goes by the name Cassie Fine, after tying the knot with ex-boyfriend Sean Combs' personal trainer, Alex Fine, 26.

The wedding news was revealed by officiant Peter Berg, who took to Instagram to share a snap of Cassie and Alex during the intimate ceremony off the cliff sides of Malibu, California, and wrote: "By the power vested in me…. @alexfine44 n @cassie Long may you ride!”

In the image, Cassie is seen showing off her growing baby bump in an off-the-shoulder white dress, paired with a white lace veil as she holds hands with Alex, who looks suave in his suit and tie.

It's unclear exactly when the wedding took place, but Cassie and Alex had revealed their intention to wed by picking up a marriage license back in August (19), WENN.com reports.

Cassie, who split from music mogul Diddy late last year after cheating on him with his personal trainer, is expecting a baby girl with Fine.

Combs, 50, reportedly took the break up hard. Particularly since he assumed he had Cassie under his complete control.

But sources say Cassie outgrew Combs, and she saw her chance to escape after his baby mama, Kim Porter, died of double pneumonia last year at age 47.

Friends say Combs was so distraught over Kim's death, that he failed to notice Cassie was head over heels in love with his personal trainer.

"She found true love with Alex," said the source.

Pastor Jamal H. Bryant is apparently dating his long-suffering ex-wife Gizelle Bryant, the mother of his three children. Pastor Bryant invited Kanye West to bring his traveling "Sunday Service" gospel revue to Atlanta's New Birth Missionary Church this weekend.

The pastor also invited his ex-wife, Real Housewives of Potomac reality TV star Gizelle Bryant to love up on him while all eyes in the congregation were on Kanye.

According to Page Six, the Bryants are "working on their relationship."

Gizelle, 49, and Jamal, 48, were married from 2002 to 2007, and share daughter, Grace, 14, and twins Adore and Angel, 13.

And since the children are still minors, they need both of their parents in the same household to act as an example so their children know what Love looks like.

During a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Gizelle told host Andy Cohen that her daughters are trying to adjust to seeing their parents "date" again.

"They're a little confused to be honest with you because they've never seen us together in that way," she said. "We got divorced 12 years ago, so when he comes into town and he wants to take me to dinner, they're like, 'Wait a minute, aren't we all going? Because that's what we would normally do."

If everything works out with her ex, Gizelle will consider moving to Atlanta to assume her rightful place as First Lady of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Why should that prestigious title be bestowed upon some other chick when Gizelle put in work raising his children all these years?

"So you're going to be a First Lady again?" co-star Monique Samuels asked Gizelle.

"Imma be whatever the Lord brings into my life," Gizelle responded. "I look back and I just feel like nobody is what their mistakes are. I feel he's a different person. I'm a different person, so we're baby-stepping, but we are moving in the direction that we want to move into. And I do love when we are all together as a family."
