Former First Lady of Turks & Caicos Islands, LisaRaye kicked up her heels at the 16th Annual Little Miss African American Scholarship Pageant at the Sheraton Hotel in Universal City, California yesterday. As you may have already heard, LisaRaye and her ex-husband, the Premiere Michael Misick and his shenanigans with TV personality Rocsi caused Great Britain to seize control of the islands last week.
The entire government on the island was dismantled and is now in the control of Britain. If you recall, Jamaica was also once a territory of the UK before Jamaica gained it’s independence in the 60s. I was going to write about this on Friday but I could only shake my head in disgust. This would probably be the first time in history that a jumpoff has ever caused the overthrow of an entire government. Kim Porter can’t even claim that achievement.
Comedian Chris Rock almost broke his neck trying to take in Rihanna‘s beauty at Madonna’s benefit gala at the United Nations in New York on Wednesday. Celebs in the house included Madonna, Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou, Gwyneth Paltrow, Dita Von Teese, Zoe Kravitz, Ben Foster and Drew Barrymore, among others.
Hopefully Zoe Kravitz (Lenny’s daughter) asked Rihanna for the number to her stylist.
