Former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland was spotted relaxing on Miami Beach during the Memorial Day weekend. Kelly was wearing a too small aqua string bikini top and giving her breast implants a little air. Kelly recently tweeted that her diet was key in keeping herself fit, saying: "I gave up sugar and fried foods again!!!". I guess she doesn't mind silicone in her diet.

Tiki Barber's soon to be ex-wife Ginny was seen out with her son's A.J and Chason and her mother today -- a week after giving birth to twin girls. Tiki was seen earlier in the day visiting his twin daughters and picking up the boys for a play date in the park.

T.I. was spotted rocking out at Klutch nightclub on Miami Beach last night, as his fiancee Tiny watched lovingly from the side of the stage (far right).

In a revealing interview with, actress LisaRaye gave a little more insight into her recently broken heart, her philosophy on life, making amends with her ex- husband, the former premier of T&C Islands; and her strained finances.

LR described her current status as "so on the market":

You’ve got to do something different and step out on faith. You cannot bring your old baggage into something new. Learn from that, move forward and give love a chance. Love is a wonderful thing, it’s very powerful. I’m a fan of marriage, I’m a fan of belonging to someone and I would love to belong with someone because it’s easier to fight life with a partner than not. Someone to have your back, bounce ideas off of, to encourage you and build you up, someone that’s ultimately your best friend.

Her philosophy on life and her finances:

“Prayer, and failure is not an option. I love life, I love living life, and I love laughing. I prefer to look at the glass as half-full instead of seeing it as half-empty and trust this, I had my ‘Lord Have Mercy’ Fund off to the side. That’s the money that you need to have when it gets bad, but I’m still in this economy like everyone else thinking about, ‘okay, where’s the money coming in?’ My reserves are dwindling down, so that is why I’m back to business, back to doing me, back to my career, so I’m very grateful that I have an opportunity and a place to return to, that my fans are telling me ‘we want to see you on the big screen, we miss you, welcome back.’ And that speaks volumes to me.”

Christina Milian and baby

Right off the bat, new mommy Christina Milian is showing her tendency to be a hands-off mom by using a nanny. A lot of new moms are timid like that. Plus, Christina has a fading music career to resurrect (if that's at all possible).

Christina Milian and baby
Christina is looking fine as I don't know what with all that white on. While shopping yesterday, I picked up a few all white outfits for myself. LisaRaye is starting a new trend!

In addition to working on her quiet-as-kept relationship with the Rev. Al Sharpton, actress and former First Lady of Turks & Caicos LisaRaye is also starring in her own reality TV show!

They say LisaRaye is P/O at her "friends" Vivica A. Fox and Star Jones for abandoning her in her time of need. But that's typical of how we turn on each other in the black community. Black men stick together, but black women are our own worst enemies. That's why I can count my female friends on three fingers.

From That B*tch:

Word around the Internet is LisaRaye will be using her new reality show to target her former best friends Star Jones and Vivica Fox. They say LisaRaye is angry because her pals didn't stick by her through her divorce. She claims to have hosted Star on the Turks and Caicos Islands for 3 months while she went through her divorce from Al Reynolds, only to have Star turn around and take Michael Misicks' side while LisaRaye was going through her own divorce. LisaRaye also accuses Vivica Fox of betraying her by telling Michael Misick her deepest darkest secrets and Duane Martin of providing Michael with a mistress. They say she'll have some words for Rocsi, too.

Thanks to loyal reader MrsHawthorne77 for the tip!

If you're planning to fly anytime soon, keep a close eye on your bags. The recession and double digit unemployment has sparked a rise in airport thefts of passenger luggage.

Over the weekend, actress LisaRaye was a victim of airport thieves at JFK who lifted her Louis Vuitton bag and absconded with it while she wasn't looking. LisaRaye accused airline employees of pilfering her bag after the airline told her the bag was never scanned.

The distraught former First Lady of Turks & Caicos Islands took to her Twitter page to beg her "Twitt Fam" for help in retrieving her belongings.

...I need my WHOLE Twitt Family to HELP me put it out there I will pay WHOEVER comes up with my bag..Delta employee, police, family, WHOEVER. i hope like hell they find my bag. I hv family keepsakes n there i travel with. So help me bring awareness to it. Thanks

...Listen..I don't care about the bag..what's inside! Return THAT stuff please!

LisRaye even offered a reward for the return of her bag:

Yes, i will pay WHOEVER comes up with the bag..Delta employee,TSU employee, fan, police, family, WHOEVER. They can leave it & i'll get it!

In response to the widespread thievery at the nation's busiest airport, officials at Atlanta Hartsfield announced they are targeting luggage thieves and watching the situation involving airline employees closely.

Airport security said "they believe new technology and equipment has cut the chances of thievery during security screening of checked luggage."

But airlines depend on outside contractors to load and sort luggage making it hard to pinpoint where the thefts are occurring.

Meanwhile, LisaRaye, who will be in town for the BET Hip Hop Awards this weekend, is heartbroken over the loss of personal items that were near and dear to her. "it was pics of my father & I when i was little, a spiritual candle i use 2 pray, [and] my favorite sleep shirt i've had since college..." she tweeted.

You know you're 15 minutes are up when the wire services no longer include your name in the photo captions. Former First Lady of Turks & Caicos, LisaRay McCoy, needs a new acting gig fast if she has any hopes of reclaiming her C-list status. These pics of LisaRaye and her BFF Li'l Kim were listed by the wire service as "Lil Kim and friends." The two ladies frolicked in the surf on Miami Beach and let their weave catch the wind on the back of a Jetski.


Actress (and former Turks & Caicos First lady) LisaRaye's 15 minutes are fading fast. But she's still hawt enough to draw a crowd while celebrating her birthday at one of Atlanta's nightspots this past weekend.

R&B singer and reality TV personality Tiny came out to party with her friend LisaRaye. I could have sworn I heard that Tiny no longer parties while T.I. is away? Anyway, Tiny looks hawt! LOVE the CL shoes!

Actress LisaRaye was spotted out & about in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday wearing all white from head-to-toe. White is obviously LisaRaye's favorite color since that's all she wears. Maybe she has flashbacks to a time when she was once virginal and pure, lol. Coincidentally, Miss LisaRaye will be landing in Atlanta this afternoon. She's in town on business, including a paid appearance at an area nightclub. Make that money, girl!

R&B singer Usher with wifey #2 Def Jam exec Grace Miguel vacationing somewhere. Don't let Chilli trick y'all into believing she and Usher are getting back together. She has a new reality show coming out. It's called a publicity stunt.

Pseudo singer Keri Hilson, right, attended the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2010 Fashion Show at the Tent during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week yesterday. Next to her is industry exec Vashti Kola (Pharrell's ex).

Would you wear this on your foot? Notice I typed "on your foot" since there isn't anything under your foot. That's right, the model is barefoot. Does this make any sense? I know, I know, fashion -- as with art, is subjective and based on personal taste. But anyone who spends money on these... air sandals, is an idiot.

These are the hawtest bags ever! Why don't I sever see celebrities rocking them I wonder?

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.

Struggling rap artist Lil Kim celebrated her 34th or 35th birthday last night at the Mansion night club in South Miami Beach, Florida (her actual birthday is July 11).

Kim's leggy friends Trina, who also resides in South Florida, and actress LisaRaye celebrated with her. We appreciate the fact that Kim has ceased using skin lighteners and reclaimed her Nubian complexion. But the colored contacts make her look like a vampire.
