Cardi has a lot to be thankful for. On Tuesday, the 27-year-old mother of one gave her followers the grand tour of the new $5.8 million mansion.

My real estate friend was unable to find any public records for the sale of this home. But she did find a $35,000-a-month rental listing for the same address. The rental was taken off the market in October.

The house sat for two years before Cardi and Offset came along. The owners chopped $4 million off the original sales price before listing it for rent.

$35,000 a month is nothing to sneeze at. Cardi is doing the right thing if she is renting. Why buy a house that she will have a very difficult time unloading in a few years?

The 22-square-foot mansion in affluent Sandy Springs, near Chastain Park boasts 5 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 4-car garage, a man cave/game room and a gun range.

Question: Did you accomplish your 10-year goals? What are your goals for the upcoming decade?

Police are hunting a group of seven teenagers who attacked an Orthodox Jewish man as he walked down a street in Brooklyn, NY.

The attack happened on Dec. 24, as the man walked alone down Lincoln Place near Albany Avenue.

Police released surveillance video footage of the males wearing black hoodies. As they walked past the man, one of the teens threw a chair at his head, knocking him to the sidewalk.

The attack happened just days after Grafton Thomas, who is Black, stabbed five Jewish people in the basement of a rabbi's home in Monsley, New York. The victims were celebrating the seventh night of Hannukkah.

The latest attack is the 14th incidence of anti-Semitic crimes perpetrated mainly by Black people in New York City's boroughs.

CBS News issued a sincere apology on Monday night for mixing up photos of the late Congressman Elijah Cummings and U.S. Rep. John Lewis, who announced he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The mixup occurred on Monday's broadcast of CBS Evening News. A photograph of Cummings was mistakenly identified as Lewis. Cummings died of natural causes on Oct. 17, at age 68.

"Tonight on the 6:30 p.m. ET broadcast of the CBS Evening News, one photograph was misidentified as Congressman John Lewis. We have replaced the photo in all broadcasts and platforms. We deeply regret the error," CBS tweeted.

News of Lewis' cancer diagnosis prompted reactions from celebrities and lawmakers on social media.

Lewis, 79, said he will continue to serve in the House of Representatives while undergoing chemotherapy treatment for his cancer.

The civil rights leader once marched alongside Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to fight for the freedom of Black people to vote in U.S. elections.

But on Sunday, Lewis announced he is in the biggest fight of his life.

"I have been in some kind of fight - for freedom, equality, basic human rights - for nearly my entire life," he said.

"I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now."

Lewis added: "I have a fighting chance."

Pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers that can go undetected until it is too far advanced to treat.

A Kansas cop resigned from the police force after admitting he scrawled the words "f*cking pig" on a McDonald's coffee cup and blamed a drive-thru worker.

The unnamed officer, 23, purchased the coffee at the drive-thru window of a McDonald's restaurant in Junction City, at 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Herington Police Chief Brian Hornaday posted a photo of the cup on the police department's official Facebook page and demanded justice for his officer. Outraged Facebook users called for the termination of the McDonald's employee.

In his Facebook post, Hornaday wrote: "This is what he paid for. Although I understand this is likely the act of one person and not a representation of the company. When it was brought to their attention the company offered him a 'free lunch'. No thank you."

He added, a "Big Mac and large fries doesn't make up for it."

After the photo went viral, Hornaday and the McDonald's reps held a news conference on Monday.

Dana Cook, the owner of the McDonald's franchise in Junction City, insisted she pored over every frame of the surveillance videos and the footage proved none of her employees wrote the expletive on the cup.

"We took seriously our role to be transparent and fully cooperative with Chief Hornaday throughout his investigation and we look forward to continuing a strong relationship with the department," Cook said.

She added: "Our McDonald's family maintains great respect for all members of law enforcement and the military, and it is with great pride that our restaurant is always open to you."

But Hornaday was not satisfied with her response.

"Hopefully, McDonald's will follow through with showing me the video that didn't exist when I met with them Saturday night," he told 13 News on Monday.

He added, there was a "whole lot more to the story than what is being portrayed online."

Later that day, Hornaday backtracked and deleted his original Facebook post. He said the police department was reviewing the surveillance video with McDonald's reps.

By Monday evening, Chief Hornaday announced the 23-year-old cop had resigned from the police force.

He declined to name the cop and he suggested the whole thing was meant to be a joke.

"Integrity is the one and only sole trait of a police officer that you cannot allow to be damaged," Hornaday said.

The police chief also addressed the public's concern that the ex cop will apply for a police job elsewhere.

"Once you damage your integrity, you're done. You will not work in this profession ever again," he said.

A homeless man who tried to abduct a sleeping woman off the 6 train in NYC was caught on the street and savagely beaten by a mob.

Sonny Alloway, 48, was arrested after a viral video showed him picking up the sleeping woman and dragging her off the 6 train at 2:30 a.m. on Monday.

The woman and a male friend, also homeless, were sleeping on the train to stay warm. Alloway, who was seated across from them, tapped the woman's leg and motioned toward the door.

When she ignored him, he grabbed her and carried her off the train at the next stop. Once on the platform, the woman struggled and broke free.

The woman spotted Alloway on the street the next day, and a mob delivered some street justice before the police were called.

Sandrarose.com did not write the following Blind Item. Please direct questions or gripes to the original source.

via Blind Gossip -- This singer has been married for more than five years.

His wife has a career of her own and is understanding of his work and travel schedule.

However, his understanding wife was not-so-understanding when he broke an agreement they had regarding infidelity.

Despite reports, there is no financial penalty for cheating in their pre-nup. What they do have, though, is an agreement that their extra-curricular relationships are to be kept on the DL so as not to become public and embarrass the other spouse.

There's a difference.

He messed up, it went public, he embarrassed her, she’s angry, and now he pays the penalty. All very understandable.

Now there are reports that she is ordering him to go rehab to deal with his [drinking] problem.

That will not happen.

"He will not go to rehab. If he did, people would assume that he had some sort of drug or alcohol problem. He will not allow that sort of permanent reputation damage."

Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard was arrested for domestic battery following a fight with his fiancee over a purse that wasn't hers.

According to TMZ Sports, Howard, 26, and his fiancee fought over a purse Howard purchased that wasn't a Christmas gift for her.

His fiancee told police Howard grabbed her arms and pushed her against a mirrored wall in a bathroom of their Davie, Florida home.

Responding officers observed "visible scratches and redness on her arm" and "redness and an abrasion" on her right elbow.

Howard was charged with domestic battery and booked into the Broward County Jail, hours after the Dolphins upset the New England Patriots on Sunday. Howard had missed the game because of a knee injury, according to Fox News.

The Dolphins released a statement on Monday. "We are aware of the situation and currently gathering information," the Dolphins told ESPN. "We will have no further comment at this time."

How convenient. A second accuser has come forward just days after a celebrity photographer accused Damon Dash of sexual assault.

Dash was sued for $50 million by his business associate and celebrity photographer Monique Bunn.

Bunn accused Dash of sexually assaulting her in a bedroom in his California mansion in April 2019. Her attorney, Chris Brown, filed the lawsuit last week.

A second woman sent a notarized letter to the court identifying herself as T. Harper. She described an assault that allegedly took place in NJ over 20 years ago.

She said she met the 48-year-old music producer at a restaurant one night in New York while she was still a college student.

Harper and her friends crossed paths with Dash again in New York. Dash and his entourage invited the women back to his penthouse in New Jersey. She said a friend called her back to Dash's master bedroom where, she alleges, he was waiting for her wearing nothing but a bathrobe.

"As he got closer, he took his towel off and began to play with his penis. I told him I was not interested in having sex. The friend who called me back, was nowhere to be found."

Harper claims Dash grabbed her, threw her down on the bed and tried to remove her pants. She said Dash attempted to penetrate her but she clenched her vagina, tightened her legs and "continued to fight."

Harper claims Dash fondled her with his fingers. The attack ended when she kicked him in his groin and fled the room.

"For a split second, I thought about taking a champagne bottle and cracking him in the head with it," Harper wrote. "But then I thought, I would get arrested and no one would believe my story, so I didn't split his skull, but I wanted to hurt him the way he had hurt me."

Harper said "it took years of therapy to accept" that she did the right thing.

Dash is the latest Hollywood mogul to be brought down by the so-called #MeToo movement. Similar allegations brought down power players like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Adam Venit, Bryan Singer and Brett Ratner.

Newly engaged NBA free agent Nick Young was spotted on a dinner date with his fiancee Keonna Green at popular restaurant Craig's in West Hollywood. Ever since Nick proposed to his longtime girlfriend on Christmas Day, they have been couples goals.

Keoona looked very happy in a white long sleeved top and cutoff denim shorts flipped inside out under a lace tutu. She accessorized her fun outfit with a pair of boa constrictor snakeskin boots.

Keonna, 29, and Nick, 34, are high school sweethearts. She bore him two children while he shamelessly stepped out with other women such as rapper Iggy Azalea, 29.

Nick, aka "Swaggy P," got engaged to Iggy on his 30th birthday, while Keonna stayed at home with his son.

After Nick and Iggy made headlines on the gossip blogs, they went their separate ways in 2016.

Keonna is best known for her role in Basketball Wives in 2017. She is also an entrepreneur who founded TNK Hair Studios in Los Angeles, CA.

Keonna belongs to a large sorority of long-suffering women who watched their famous men cheat before reluctantly taking them back for the sake of their children. Some of the women even took their men back after they fathered other babies on the side.
