Brittney Sykes and Elena Delle Donne

The surging Atlanta Dream of the Women's National Basketball Association were just one win away from heading to the WNBA finals when they were routed 97-76 by the Washington Mystics in game 4 on Sunday. The Dream was hobbled by the return of 6-ft-5 small forward Elena Delle Donne from what appeared to be a season-ending injury in game 2.

Candace Parker Shelden Williams

Women who demand equality should watch what you ask for: you just might get it. Ask WNBA star Candace Parker, who was forced to fork over $400,000 to her retired NBA ex-husband in a divorce settlement.

Parker and her ex-husband Shelden Williams, a former top NBA draft pick, agreed to a lump sum divorce settlement, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

Candace married Williams back in 2008, two years after he was selected 5th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft.

Williams earned over $12 million during his 6-year career, but Parker earned more during her stint in the WNBA. So she agreed to pay Williams $400,000 in one tidy lump sum in exchange for not paying ongoing spousal support.

She can afford it. The ex-couple split the profit from the sale of their Encino, CA home which recently sold for $3.75 million.

They also agreed to co-parent their 8-year-old daughter, and they will split the cost of her education and upbringing.

That sounds like an amicable divorce between two friends.

The Mixed Gender Basketball League's inaugural exhibition game kicked off at the Cox Pavilion on the UNLV campus in Las Vegas on Saturday. Tameka "Tiny" Harris's Atlanta Heiress co-ed team took on Master P's New Orleans Gators.

Keyshia Cole at Bootsy Bellows

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was spotted leaving Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood, California on Tuesday. The 32-year-old singer was carrying a bouquet of roses. There are rumors that Keyshia is dating local party promoter Mr. Ruggs. People forget that Keyshia is still married to her husband, NBA star Daniel "Booby" Gibson, with whom she has a son. Keyshia is a good woman who would never violate her marital vows. And besides that, Mr. Ruggs has a reputation for being an international playboy. Keyshia doesn't strike me as the desperate type who thinks she can change a known playa. How do these rumors get started?

Sophia Young

A WNBA player who came out against same-sex marriage yesterday was attacked and dragged on Twitter for her beliefs.

Sophia Young, 29, who plays for the San Antonio Silver Stars, tweeted a photo of herself holding up a placard that read "Vote No" outside the San Antonio City Hall, where hundreds of people prayed against a proposed LGBT anti-discrimination bill. The devout Christian mistook the anti-discrimination legislation for a bill legalizing same-sex marriage.

Instead of gently correcting her, Twitter users came for her throat with the same hatred and vitriol that they despise.

One Twitter user, @ChristopherFTL, tweeted "Bitch, are you really that dumb? Your mama must've been hitting the crack pipe while pregnant with your ugly ass."

Chamique Holdsclaw Jennifer Lacy Monique Curry

Sorry, men, if you thought you had a chance with Gorge bisexual WNBA star Jennifer Lacy, you just missed the boat.
