    Taylor Swift letters found unopened

    A woman discarding garbage in a dumpster in Taylor Swift's home state of Nashville, TN, found hundreds of unopened letters addressed to the singer, WKRN.com reports.

    "I was like, ‘That's weird,'" Kylee Francescan told Nashville's News 2 Investigates. "There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I'm like, ‘Oh my gosh!' I didn't know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I'm like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.'"

    Comments Off on Morning Glory: Gabriela Solano

    Gabriela Solano

    Loyal reader Eish writes:

    Hi Sandra,

    I am an avid reader of your site! I find your site to be quite credible and entertaining. I'm submitting a few morning glory photos on behalf of my friend Gabriela Solano. Not only is my friend an aspiring singer with a great voice but she is a talented hip-hop/ballet dancer, as well as an aspiring model. Besides her array of talents, she is also a single mother of a beautiful baby girl.

    I've watched her over the years juggle school, work, and motherhood--I have much respect for her and the women out there that wear multiple hats. Lastly, my friend is from Stamford Connecticut and let's just say that we don't have many stars from Stamford, Connecticut.

    Hopefully, featuring my friend as your Morning Glory will provide her with the platform she needs to become recognized. If anyone would like to book my amazing friend Gabriela Solano for upcoming fashion shows, etc., please e-mail me at acope@csufresno.edu. FYI, she has no idea that I'm doing this for her. I know that she deserves to be recognized and as her friend I wanted to do something special for her. God blesses those who work hard and keep at their dream! Here blessings await her.

    Thank you in advance for this opportunity on behalf of my friend Sandra.

    God bless you,

    Eish

    Ladies, submit your photos: If you think you have what it takes to be considered for a Morning Glory post, email your best studio quality photos and bikini shots to sandra @ sandrarose.com (remove spaces).

    Comments Off on fanMAIL: Derek J Total Makeover Winner Wendy

    Loyal reader Sherese writes:

    Hi Sandra,

    Wendy went to see Derek J and the Jspot salon crew today and she had an amazing experience. They are a good crew. Here are the pictures from her experience and we cant thank you enough for this opportunity. I am still happy!!

    Many thanks to Derek J, Lisa McCall, and J Spot Salon!

    Yesterday, I told you the names of cast members of Mona Scott-Young's much talked about new reality TV series titled Hip Hop Gossip Girls. The information was passed on to me by someone who actually appears in one of the episodes. (She was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement). The names she gave me were correct (at the time). It took me a few days to write that post -- in which time, the names of the cast changed.

    So I was not wrong about a couple of the names -- I was just late. Anyway, celebrity blogger Tattletailzz has the names of a few of the cast members:

    Sharon Carpenter (Global Grind) Kim Osorio (known mainly for Source Magazine and a book about industry secrets exposed) and JasFly from Vibe. We believe more will be announced.

    We also hear that Sandra Rose was asked but she did refuse.

    Tattletailzz left out the other two cast members: Necole Bitchie and Angela Yee.

    According to VIBE, radio jocks Angie Martinez and Miss Info are no longer members of the cast (I'm told they quit).

    So there you have it. Warm tea is just as tasty as hot tea. Keep it here for more details!

  • Newark Mayor Cory Booker is an anomaly; at 43, he holds a prestigious job, makes a ton of money, but he is chronically single.

    In 2012, a handsome man who is still single after the age of 40 is almost unheard of.

    Mr. Booker has been the subject of rampant ghey rumors for years now. In a new interview by Obie Brook for EBONY magazine, Mayor Booker adds fuel to the rumors by balking at the mere mention of dating ladies.

    EBONY: Forgive me, I have to ask this question because too many ladies out there would kill me if I didn't: are you hoping to settle down and start a family in the near future?

    CORY BOOKER: [Laughs] What "ladies"? Did my mother put you up to this? [Laughs] I just I think everybody wants to have that settled life and even God wants us to "have life and have it more abundantly." Everybody wants to find their soul mate and I’m no different. That's definitely what I want in the future.

    Booker goes on to say he is looking for a "soul mate" to settle down with -- not necessarily a female.

    EBONY: Last year you mentioned being too busy to date. Have you found
    that soul mate yet or are you still looking?

    CORY BOOKER: Still looking for that soul mate.

    Sandrarose.com was the first to break the story that Nia Riley (Teddy’s daughter) and Deiondra Sanders (Deion Sanders daughter) might be lovers. After I wrote about them, both women took to their Twitter pages to vehemently deny there ever was an intimate relationship between the two of them.

    But today we received an email from someone claiming to be Nia Riley explaining why they are no longer friends. The impostor said Deiondra went on a Twitter rant against her former stepmother Pilar because Deiondra was "obsessed" with Pilar. Apparently, the fake Nia sent the same email to other urban blogs.

    The real Nia took to her Twitter page a few moments ago to blast the fake emails.

    Scroll down for update...

    Have you seen what Rihanna said about the blogs and our readers who support her and buy her music?

    Why do I think she's referring to just the urban blogs? I'm speechless. She could have at least qualified her statement by saying "Some blogs".

    Why is she so bitter? Should I ban any further Rihanna posts for this blasphemy?

    I read the blogs sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out. I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is.

    It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves... They hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are. So what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities.

    It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer and type.

    Source. Thanks @Usher_is_King for the tip!

    Update:

    Thanks to loyal reader Ogi for sending this video of the actual interview. Ogi said Rihanna's words were twisted by another blog. But the text stays true to what she actually said.
