Congrats! Michael Vick Signs New Endorsment Deal With Nike!

Michael Vick has signed a new deal with Nike! Details below:

The AP Reports as follows:

Michael Vick is back with Nike more than two years after the company severed ties over the quarterback's involvement in a dogfighting ring.

The managing director of the agency that represents Vick announced the deal Wednesday while participating on a panel at the Sports Sponsorship Symposium. Michael Principe of BEST referred questions to Vick's agent, Joel Segal, who said:

"Mike has a longstanding great relationship with Nike and he looks forward to continue in that relationship."

Segal would not reveal terms of the agreement.

"Mike has had a great relationship with Nike and is excited to be part of the Nike team again," Segal said.

The deal is the latest step forward for Vick as he seeks to rehabilitate his career and his image after serving 18 months in federal prison. On Sunday, Vick played his first regular-season game since December 2006.

The former Atlanta Falcons star signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 13. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell gave him his full reinstatement Sept. 3, saying he could return to the field in Week 3.

Vick participated in 11 plays, accounting for 30 total yards, in the Eagles' 34-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, as Philadelphia tries to use him in a variety of ways as a backup.

Nike, which signed Vick as a rookie in 2001, terminated his contract in August 2007 after he filed a plea agreement admitting his involvement in the dogfighting ring.

Vick agreed to a $1.6 million deal with the Eagles, with a team option for the second year at $5.2 million. The club has received little backlash -- protests have been limited, and the Eagles' sponsors have stood by them. That experience could make companies less wary about adding Vick as an endorser, though the biggest determinant may be no different from any other athlete: how well he performs on the field.

Update! Friends Say Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake Have NOT Called It Quits....Yet! Jessica Is In Complete Denial!

Awwww...Now don't they look so happy together!

Oh sooky sooky now!

With the internet buzzing about the "hookup" between Rihanna and Justin Timberlake...the little "pop" world could not stand the rumors!! LMAO!

Anywho...all of a sudden, out of the blue..friends are coming out left and right saying Jessica is still with Justin. (Blank Stare) HmmmHmmm... Girl stop! LOL

Whew!There is even a sighting of them from Monday night in California. (KEEP IN MIND THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN TOGETHER SINCE JULY 4TH!) and judging by the picture...they do not look happy together!

Jessica rushed her azz from Canada to get her man! LOL..I am on the dayum floor! Now remember how Jessica Biel was trippin over the video Justin did with Ciara. She is determined not to see her relationship go down in flames like Cameron Diaz's did with Justin....

Speaking of which perhaps Jessica is a bit spooked b/c Karma is a BITCH... What goes around comes around... Jessica was creeping with Justin when Cameron Diaz was with him and they all even had a public blow up when Cameron confronted both Jessica and Justin at an event. Drew Barrymore had to pull Cameron aside and tell her friend to let it go.

So now...Jessica is determined to let the WORLD know...she is still with Justin. (Okay...whateva)....

Details below:

Despite reports that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's two-year relationship is over, sources tell PEOPLE the couple have not broken up.

In fact, on Monday night they were photographed together while on a getaway in Northern California.

"They're together," says an insider. "They're not breaking up. Any time they spend time apart it's because they're working."

Over the summer, Timberlake, 28, was in Europe promoting his Givenchy fragrance and William Rast clothing line, while Biel, 27, remained in Los Angeles where she starred in Guys and Dolls.

But in January, the actress plans to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro (as part of the star-studded Summit on the Summit expedition to raise awareness for clean water), and Timberlake, says sources, is in talks to join her.

A Rough Patch
Whether the couple will still be together in three months is another story. According to a second source, they are going through a rough-patch.

"Things have been a bit up in the air recently," says the source. "They've been spending more time apart – more time with each of their friends, and they've been reevaluating [their relationship]."

On Sept. 22, Biel was dateless at the L.A. wrap party for her upcoming film Valentine's Day, and on Sept. 25, Timberlake partied at Crown Bar in West Hollywood with best friend Trace Ayala.

Adds the source, "Jessica has felt like they haven't been on the same page – haven't had the same priorities."

As for rumors that Timberlake has been getting close to Rihanna, a source close to her insists that the relationship is purely professional: "They're working together. They were in the studio for her album and they'll be going back in again."

New Couple Alert! Rihanna & Justin Timberlake!?? + Video Of The Day! "Rehab" By Rihanna f/ Justin Timberlake!

Interestingly enough...Justin and his most recent girlfriend Jessica Biel have not been seen together since the July 4th weekend. So the rumor mill had them already split up months ago...

So has Justin moved Rihanna????

Sources say Justin and Rihanna got down and dirty at a MTV Music Video Awards after party in New York City a few weeks ago, dancing tightly and even going back to Rihanna's hotel room together!

Justin is also working on Rihanna's album and the two are getting very close.

Justin is not new at swirling....He has been previously linked to Janet Jackson and Tatyana Ali.

Time will tell if this blooms into much more!

Rehab - Rihanna


The singer ended his three-year relationship with a heartbroken Biel a month ago during an emotional phone call, reports Us Weekly magazine.

It comes just months after the actress moved all her belongings into the star's Hollywood home, as well as a new pad they purchased together in New York City.

A source tells the tabloid Timberlake grew tired of the actress' insecurities and yearned to return to the dating scene.

The insider says, "He just said he needs time apart to just experience being single again. She refuses to accept it and called him non-stop trying to save it. She can't imagine life without him."

A separate report in Star magazine suggests the star severed his ties with Biel so he could pursue single songbird Rihanna, who he's been increasingly linked with over the past few weeks.

Star's sources claim the couple hooked up after the MTV Video Music Awards in New York on 13 September (09) - while Biel was shooting the new A-Team movie in Canada - and have stayed in contact since, arranging clandestine meetings.

An insider tells the tabloid, "They've been talking and texting non-stop since the VMAs. He's pressing her to plan another hook-up.

"They liked the excitement of sneaking around. She digs him and wants to date him."

Representatives for Biel, Timberlake and Rihanna have yet to comment on the reports.

Books: Sarah Palin Writes A Memoir "Going Rogue: An American Life" In Stores 11.17.09!

Speed writer Sarah Palin has written a book people! (Blank Stare)

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has already finished her memoir, titled Going Rogue: An American Life, and has a newly moved-up launch date for its publication – Nov. 17 for a whopping 1.5 million copies, the Christian Science Monitor reports.

The 400-page memoir from Harper Collins, which Palin wrote with noted ghostwriter Lynn Vincent, was completed in a swift four months, at last part of which Palin spent in an intense retreat in San Diego, Calif.

The title of Palin's book is also notable, as it's the term that advisors to Sen. John McCain used to mock the former vice presidential nominee during the 2008 presidential elections, describing some of the many complaints the McCain camp allegedly had for the candidate's running mate.

Despite her speedy wrap-up of her book, Palin, 45, has a lot to cover in her tale, from her beauty-pageant beginnings, to her selection by McCain, to revelations of her daughter Bristol's pregnancy, to her falling-out with Bristol's baby's father, Levi Johnston – who has accused the ex-governor of being far from the simple American wife and mom she claims to be. Neither Palin nor Vincent has commented on the contents of the text.

Palin is considered a favorite of many social conservatives for the 2012 presidential election, though she will not confirm her future plans.

Side Note:

A 400 page biography written in 4 months. That's a dayum pamphlet! LMAO!

UPDATE! Jay Z Speaks About Lil Mama's VMA Stunt!

Jay Z had this to say about Lil Mama's intrusive and rude behavior at the MTV VMAs, when she walked up on stage during his performance with Alicia Keys.

"I actually thought it was equivalent to what Kanye did to Taylor Swift, but nobody really talked about that because I'm not a sweet little girl from the middle of America."

CONGRATS! Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian Are Officially Back Together!

Congrats to Kim & Reggie! I think they are a fab couple!


Just a day after sister Khloe tied the knot with L.A. Lakers player Lamar Odom, big sister Kim Kardashian officially reconciled with her NFL running back beau, Reggie Bush.

"They're totally back together for real," says a source close to the couple. "Kim and Reggie spent a few months apart getting their priorities together and figuring out who they were as individuals so they can make it work together."

Tragic News: 16 Year Old Honor Student Beaten To Death And It Was Caught On Tape!

This is inexcusable! My thoughts and prayers go out to Derrion Albert's family.


Prosecutors have charged three teenagers with first-degree murder in the beating death of a Chicago student who was walking home from school.

Family members believe the victim, 16-year-old Derrion Albert, was fatally beaten Thursday for refusing to join a gang. But some witnesses say he was a bystander who was swept into a violent fight.

A vigil for Albert is planned outside Fenger High School on the city's South Side on Monday afternoon.

The cowards who killed Derrion Albert will be brought to swift justice.

Update! Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom WEDDING Pics!

Even though no cameras or blackberries were allowed during the wedding... paps were able to snap some pics before the wedding....Khloe wore a fabulous Vera Wang gown, the bridemaids dresses were also Vera Wang!

Update! Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Wedding Details! + Rehearsal Dinner Photos!

Wedding details as follows:

**All photos are from the rehearsal dinner NOT the wedding.... As previously reported here on the "Chocolate Chick"...the wedding photos will be shown in the upcoming issue of OK! Magazine!***

In what proved to be an elegant finale to their month-long courtship, Khloe Kardashian wed Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom Sunday evening at a private residence in Beverly Hills, PEOPLE confirms.

At 5:12 p.m., Kardashian, 25, walked down the outdoor aisle in a Vera Wang gown on the arm of her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim and a pregnant Kourtney at her side.

Khloe’s bridal party included half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, actresses (and twin sisters) Khadijah and Malika Haqq and actress Lauren London.

Cameras rolled for a future episode of E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians as 250 guests – including the show’s producer Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Odom’s Laker teammate Kobe Bryant, with his wife Vanessa, and TV personalities Chelsea Handler, Lara Spencer, Brittny Gastineau and LaLa Vazquez – looked on.

Guests began arriving at the black-tie affair (at which BlackBerries were banned) more than an hour in advance for a pre-wedding reception. A ten-piece orchestra played during the ceremony, held on the grounds of the home of music mogul Irving Azoff, a family friend. The flowers for the ceremony were all-white.

Nightclub Theme
Wedding planner Sharon Sacks created the Hollywood nightclub-themed reception that followed in a tent on the property, fitted with dark wooden walls, white carpeting, silver mirrors and chandeliers. Guests dined at glass and wood tables decorated with lavish centerpieces of white and lavender flowers. A DJ was booked to keep the party going until 11:00 p.m.

Elegant white and silver invitations went out to guests just days before the ceremony, hosted by Khloe’s mom Kris Jenner and her stepdad. Also among those who attended were Luke Walton, Phil Jackson, Mitch Kupchak and Sasha Vujacic.

Lavish Menu
The four-course dinner began with chilled heirloom tomato soup with burrata (mozzarella and cream), a salad of melons with fresh figs and feta, followed by a choice of filet mignon or wild salmon fillet and a dessert trio. The wedding cake was by Hansen’s Cakes.

Earlier in the week, Khloe prepared for the whirlwind wedding, choosing items for her wedding registry and celebrating with a bachelorette party, all while being followed by the E! cameras.

Asked if he would consider producing a show with Khloe and Lamar, Ryan Seacrest replied, “I’m seriously thinking about it.”

Side Note:

Not that we would be surprised..but according to TMZ:

Odom has lawyered up and so has Khloe. The problem is ... they have to get married on Sunday and there isn't enough time to hash out the details of a prenuptial agreement.

Why, you ask, isn't there enough time? We've learned they must get married on Sunday because one of the Kardashian reality shows is footing the $1 million bill for the wedding, but the deal is that the wedding must be shot this Sunday.
So we're told Lamar wants a postnup -- meaning the agreement will be hashed out and hopefully signed after Sunday's event.

Now here's the intrigue. There's talk that Sunday's wedding might not be the real deal -- it could be a non-binding ceremony. It's common with a postnup that bride and groom would not officially tie the knot until after they sign the document. What they typically do sign before the ceremony is an acknowledgment that it's not really an official wedding, to prevent misunderstandings down the road.

Congrats! Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Are Married!

Well they actually did the dayum thing! After knowing one another for just a month. Khloe and Lamar have wed.

Something just screams "publicity" and a new "reality show"...anywho...Congrats to the newlyweds.

I hope they can at least make it to a 1 year anniversary!

The bride wore a Vera Wang gown and was escorted down the aisle by stepdad Bruce Jenner. And yes, Kobe Bryant and most of the Lakers were in attendance.

In addition..

Khloe Kardashian is set to make a hefty sum from her wedding to the Lakers' Lamar Odom.

Sources say OK! magazine is about to shell out $300,000 for an exclusive on today's nuptials, besting lesser offers from Us Weekly and People.

However, Lamar Odom won't be making a dime off the deal, according to a Kardashian family insider. The source says that Khloe will pocket all the cash — with a cut going to her manager-mom, Kris, of course.

Reps for all parties didn't respond to calls for comment.

Swizz Beatz Wife Mashonda Puts Alicia Keys On Full Blast Via Twitter!

Swizz Beatz soon to be ex-wife and mother of his child, Mashonda, sent a letter via Twitter to Alicia Keys (whose now in a relationship with Swizz), about being a woman and admiting her wrong and burying the hatchet. Will Alicia respond?

The letter was posted in response to a question Keys posted on Twitter: "N love is it better to go 4 the choice that is 'SMART' or the choice that has 'SPARK'??"

Below, is the letter Mashonda sent to Alicia:

After having a great evening with my son and enjoying some fun twit chat, I decided to sign off and get some work done. However, a few hours later I was advised that I should check @aliciakeys twit page. I’ve never reached out to her on twitter before. I feel our issues are a lot more serious than a website conversation. Not to mention that I’ve reached out to her many times in the beginning of this whole thing, as any wife would do. Unfortunately, I never succeeded in getting a response. The 1st time I meet AK, my husband introduced us to each other at an event. ( I have no choice but to call him my husband, until he is not anymore) In the messages that I sent to her (AK), I made it very clear that on the contrary of what she might be hearing, I am still married to my husband, living with him and just had a child. Its been two years and I still have not received a response. What I do receive, is constant displays of selfishness and disconcern to me and my son.

I was a fan of AK’s last album, we were both signed to J Records and I always checked up on her projects. I sang her songs and admired her for creating Superwoman and Karma, I would never deny her, her talent. I believed in her until I found out she was possibly sleeping with my husband. The affair was denied by both, until it was finally admitted months later.

Already I can hear some of you saying ” why are u blaming her, You cant make someone leave their wife, You cant break something thats broken”. Well, my marriage was not broken, as far as I knew we were celebrating our sons birth and getting ready to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary . Call it blind love, whatever. I call it being a devoted wife.. As far as me blaming her and not blaming him, thats false. Me and my husband have worked out our differences. We are in a good place as people and as parents. I accept his choices and I am comfortable enough with myself to move on. I am so very blessed in many ways.

My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation. How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? I ask myself sometimes.

If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did. You know the role you played and you know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage. You know that I asked you to step back and let me handle my family issues. Issues that you helped to create.

Im not saying everything was perfect all the time but no relationship is perfect. We made a vow to God and I believe you should have respected that, as a woman. I know you owe me or my son nothing but I just wish you would’ve handled things more carefully. I’m not judging you, I put you and the whole situation in the hands of God, the Higher Power. Just know that as a woman, I expected so much more from you. I never had intentions on reaching out to you this way but after reading your twits tonight, and the constant disregard, you left me no choice. I feel that after 1 and a half years of you hiding this affair and acting like it doesnt exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now

This is not a publicity stunt, I dont have a record coming out. I just need to close this chapter in my life and that means confronting our issues. There is a small child involved. His dad loves him to death and he wants to spend more time with him but hes afraid because he knows we don’t have a relationship. This is my main concern. My son NEEDS his dad and I NEED to be comfortable with you. For him!

I know many will see my point and many will not be able to look into what’s real because they only want to see Alicia Keys the celebrity, not the human. This is not for the “people”, this is for you. Like I said I was left no choice but to reach out to you this way. By now, Im sure you want to find a balance in this as well.

I read your tweets tonight and I felt they were very insensitive. You have no idea how much pain I was caused because of this affair. Its baffling to me that you don’t understand what I might have gone through with this situation. I dont consider myself a victim anymore, Ive learned alot from this! I just ask you to try and be a bit more realistic and delicate to the situation, at least until my divorce is final. I felt me attending the party would have been a starting point for us, since you shook my hand after I offered it, but I suppose I was wrong.

If its so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. If you two being together forever is the case, its more of a reason for us to get along, because I’m not going anywhere. Theres a child to be raised.

To answer your tweet, choose smart over spark. Sparks burn everyone, be smart! Its simple actually, just think of the shoe being on the other foot.

Stay blessed and lets work this thing out with respect and dignity.
