Everybody loves a winner, especially bandwagon jumpers. Two famous bandwagon jumpers were rebuffed by the repeat NBA World Champions Miami HEAT yesterday. Rapper Drake was turned away when he tried to gain access to the Miami Heat locker room to join the celebrations after the Heat clinched the NBA title in game 7. When his famous face didn't get him through the door, he reportedly lied and said "I'm media!"

The NY Post has more details about Ahmad Rashad's nasty divorce from his wealthy wife, Sale Johnson. According to the Post, Johnson hired extra security to prevent the 63-year-old ex-NFL star from setting foot inside her home in the posh Bears Club gated community in Jupiter, Fla. Johnson also had Rashad's key fob deactivated so he can't drive through the front gates like he lives there.
Okay, I'm kidding about the Honey Nut Cheerios thing. But the guy who was ejected from last night's Miami Heat vs Utah Jazz game for heckling Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade had a very expensive front row seat. Just because he's a well-heeled fan doesn't give him the right to shoot off his mouth and disrupt a NBA game. Only NY Knicks superfan Spike Lee can do that.
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.

The Reverend Al Sharpton and a female fan got a little carried away during a public memorial for Michael Jackson held at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem last night.
Thousands of fans from all over the country lined up in the pouring rain along West 125th Street near the historic Apollo Theater waiting for their chance to celebrate the life and music of Michael Jackson, who died of heart failure last week at his rented home in Los Angeles.
The memorial began at 2pm with Sharpton calling for a moment of silence at 5:26pm -- the time on the east coast when doctors pronounced Jackson dead at the UCLA Medical Center.
Then Sharpton shocked revelers when he and an unidentified woman got up close and personal with each other onstage as director Spike Lee snapped photos of the spectacle.
