OMG Files! Usher Engaged & Expecting Another Baby!!??

Sources are saying that Usher who recently divorced his wife Tameka Foster is engaged yet again to the woman he was spotted with just days before he filed for divorce late last year. Even more shocking are the claims that the woman, Grace Miguel is 3 months pregnant with Usher's baby!!!!!!

Yep that would make Baby #3 for Mr. Raymond. (He must be trying to keep up with Diddy!!)

As you can imagine, Tameka Foster Raymond can't be too happy about this... just a day or so ago.. she tweeted the question "How do you know you are dealing with a b**tcha** dude?"... this tweet came out after she realized Usher was caught by the paps with their children and Grace Miguel in a park together.

The drama continues........

Congrats! Sandra Bullock Divorcing Jesse James & Introduces Her Adopted Baby Boy Louis To The World!!

Sandra Bullock speaks with People Magazine exclusively and announced not only is she divorcing Jesse James, she spilled a little secret she's had for a few months.. she adopted a beautiful baby boy! Details below:

Sandra gushes about her new adopted son Louie!

He's just perfect, I can't even describe him any other way," Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE, announcing that she is the proud mother of Louis Bardo Bullock, a 3½-month-old boy, born in New Orleans. "It's like he's always been a part of our lives." Baby Louis was named after jazz great Louis Armstrong.

Bullock, 45, and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family – including James's children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.

Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent.

Divorce on her mind!

It's official: Sandra Bullock wants out of her nearly five-year marriage to Jesse James.

"Yes, I have filed for divorce," the actress, 45, tells PEOPLE in the latest issue, in which she also reveals she has adopted a son, 3½-month-old Louis.

A rep for Bullock confirms the star filed legal papers seeking to end her marriage, but declines to specify in what jurisdiction they are filed. Says Bullock of her decision to divorce: "I'm sad and I am scared."

It was a cheating scandal that rocked the couple's marriage, with several women claiming to have had illicit affairs with James, 41.

Side Note: So happy for Sandra! Congrats to her and good for her for letting that trife hubby of hers go!!!

Civil Rights Matriach Dorothy Height Passes At 98!

Civil rights pioneer Dorothy Height, the president of the National Council of Negro Women for more than 40 years and a pivotal figure during the civil rights era of the 1960s, died of natural causes Tuesday morning at the age of 98.

Height was "the godmother of the civil rights movement and a hero to so many Americans," President Obama said in a statement.

When Height was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2004, President George W. Bush called her a "giant of the civil rights movement" who had been an informal adviser to presidents and first ladies for more than 50 years.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Shaq Is NOT Happy Shaunie Has Moved On!!

Well it seems Shaq can't deal with the fact that his soon to be ex-wife Shaunie O'Neal actually left his serial cheating azz! (Remember according to Shaunie that Shaq told her during their marriage when confronted about cheating "Do you have any proof? You aren't going anywhere anyway")

Shaunie O'Neal did leave... and of course has produced a new reality series "Basketball Wives"...

Shaq is livid! He has alledgedly threatened Shaunie's new 23 year old boyfriend! Details below:

According to TMZ, Shaunie's lawyer sent a letter to Shaq's lawyer, claiming that Shaq has been forcing his sons to attack their mom's new boyfriend.

[The letter claims] the basketball star "interrogated" the couple's children to tell him everything they knew about her new man ... "to the point that they felt intimidated and scared of him."

Shaunie also claims Shaq told their 6-year-old son to tell her boyfriend that Shaq "is going to kill him" -- and that Shaq even screamed at the kid and said, "Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!"

Shaunie's lawyers are demanding Shaq halt "further inappropriate discussions" with their children, which is an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce.

Side Note: Shaq needs to calm down. He was given too many chances to put a halt on the cheating. He obviously truly believed Shaunie would put up with it until he could no longer get it up!!

Shaq Is Pissed & Wants Soon To Be Ex-Wife Shaunie's Reality Show Off The Air!

Shaq is pissed at Shaunie's new reality show "Basketball Wives" which airs Sunday nights on VH1. The show's premiere episode last week was a much talked about affair! The show has the audience... Will Shaq be able to shut the show down? Details Below:

Via BV:

Estranged wife Shaunie's new VH-1 reality show,'Basketball Wives' which she created and executive produced, is striking a nerve with her soon-to-be ex. Reportedly, the serial cheater feels that the show is making one too many negative references about him, and he wants it stopped immediately.

According to TMZ, Shaq's lawyers sent the reality-spinning network a letter, stating that Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement. If Shaunie even mentions her hubby's name on the show, she and her production company could expect to get hauled into court by Shaq's slam dunk legal eagles faster than you can say "foul shot!"

The next airs tonight, and, allegedly, the spotlight will be on Shaunie and on her relationship with Shaq.

Unidentified sources told TMZ that it is still up in the air whether the episode will actually make it to the waves.

Side Note: Oh the S**t is about to hit the fan!!! Will the episode in question air tonight?

Jay Z Sues David Ortiz Over Use Of Club Name!

Jay Z is suing over the use of the name of his uber successful "40/40" club.

Via AP:

Jay-Z and a business partner are suing slugger David Ortiz, claiming the Boston Red Sox star named his Dominican nightclub after the hip hop mogul’s chain of 40/40 nightclubs.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in a federal court in Manhattan, accuses Ortiz and his sister of naming their Santo Domingo club Forty-Forty in the hopes of trading in on the rapper’s name.

The suit seeks more than $5 million in damages and for Ortiz to forfeit any use of the name.

Jay-Z, a Yankees fan who performed at the team’s World Series victory parade last year, opened his original 40/40 club in Manhattan with business partner Juan Perez in 2003

He promoted the sports bar and lounge by dropping references to it in rap hits like “Dirt Off Your Shoulder.” The pair subsequently opened up 40/40 clubs in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and have licensed the name to operators in Tokyo and Macau.

“David Ortiz is fully aware of plaintiff’s Manhattan 40/40 club, since he had been a patron there on several occasions before he opened his Infringing Forty/Forty club,” the lawsuit said

Court filings included photographs of Ortiz at the club.

SFX Baseball, the agency that represents Ortiz, did not respond to phone and e-mail messages.

The 40/40 club’s lawyers also asked the court to block the slugger from using the Forty Forty name on his club’s Web site.

Jay-Z’s 40/40 club is named after the rare feat among ballplayers of hitting 40 homers and stealing 40 bases in one season.

Ortiz is a power hitter who has stolen 10 bases in 13 seasons, but he has hit more than 40 homers three times.

Side Note: Good for Jay Z! He should sue for more than $5 Million! Ortiz obviously knew what he was doing!! So not a good look!!

Spotted! Rihanna Was Spotted Watching Her Boo Matt Kemp Do His Thing!!

Rihanna was spotted at Dodger’s Stadium to watch her man get busy on the baseball diamond.

Via DailyMail:

After months of being coy about her burgeoning romance with Los Angeles Dodgers player Matt Kemp, Rihanna has made her debut as a baseball WAG.

Sitting in the front row at the first home game for the new season, the R&B singer cheered and whooped as her new love scored a home run against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Looking like a regular baseball fan in her blue Dodgers hoodie, Rihanna, 22, watched her outfielder beau, 25, intently during the game’s nine innings.

Her attendance proved to be a lucky charm for the team, who won the game 9-5.

Although she’s set to kick off her four-month Last Girl On Earth world tour on Friday, she’ll no doubt try to squeeze in a few games before the baseball season wraps in October.

Hopefully Rihanna will have some time later this year to support Kemp if the Dodgers hit the World Series finals – which they last won in 1988.

Also at the game was Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am, who showed off his catching skills on the field, and country singer LeAnn Rimes.

BET Brings Back "The Game", "Mo"Nique" & More!!

BET is coming back in 2010 stronger than ever! With the announcement that it will be bringing back the highly popular and much anticipated show "The Game", BET is finally becoming the network it should be!

Details below:

In a recent press release, BET reveals all of its new line ups and specials that they hope will make 2010 better than 2009.

"We have always been in constant conversation with our audience, but now we are coming into 2010 with a creative mix of original content and key acquisitions that keep our numbers growing," said Debra L. Lee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BET Networks. “

One of the biggest announcements made was the decision to listen to what fans wanted and to bring back the hit show “The Game.” The show will be exclusively on BET and will contain all of the original cast members.

“The Mo'nique Show,” has also been given a 2nd season, and will continue to bring you the lively Oscar Winning Mo'nique and her late night sessions with all of today's celebrities. Another show returning is “The Family Crews,” which features actor Terry Crews, and his loving wife trying to raise his rambunctious family and the many surprises they encounter.

BET has also announced a handful of new shows that they hope will continue the success of many of their other ones. Some of these shows include a spinoff of BET's “Tiny & Toya,” and will simply be just “Toya.” The show will feature the life of one half of the duo, as she tries to move on from being known as Mrs. Carter and makes a name of her own.

Another new show “The Kennedy's,” will feature star skateboarder Terry Kennedy, and his quest to launch his own clothing line, while trying to maintain his family and many other obstacles in his life. BET has also announced that comedian/actor Steve Harvey, will also be bringing his hilarious morning radio show to the Centric station in the beginning of 2011.

Make sure to check out for all of the latest show announcements and other projects in store for 2010.

Side Note: Finally! BET is coming up with quality original programming. A few years ago, I faxed a letter to the powers that be at BET... stating that BET needed to come up with "quality" television... at the time I suggested bringing back cancelled shows that were on the UPN network, (Eve, Half and Half etc...) in addition to creating new shows, including talk shows, a soap, news and becoming a Network force to be reckoned with in Televison! Perhaps they listened!! :0

Sarah Palin's "Demands" For Upcoming Speech At California State University Stanislaus Discovered In A Contract Found In The Trash! + Protests!

Via The AP:

A document found in the trash at a California state university trash reveals the luxe treatment Sarah Palin will receive when she speaks there this summer -- and has triggered a state investigation into university officials' refusal to disclose details of the contract, the Associated Press reports.

Students at California State University, Stanislaus, uncovered the five-page document after hearing school administrators might be shredding documents related to Palin's June 25 speech to the school's Stanislaus Foundation, the Associated Press reported. According to the contract, audience questions will be pre-screened, Palin's water bottles will have bendable straws and she'll get three rooms at a luxury hotel. The former vice presidential candidate will get first-class plane tickets. If she doesn't fly commercial, "the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger," according to the contract, dated March 16.

For the post-speech Q&A period, Palin requires that "questions are to be collected from the audience in advance, pre-screened and a designated representative . . . shall ask questions directly of the speaker [Palin] to avoid delay time with a roving microphone in the audience."

The contract doesn't state how much Palin is to be paid. She reportedly gets about $100,000 per speaking engagement.

The document was made public by state Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco). Earlier he had requested a copy of the Palin contract but Cal State Stanislaus officials refused to turn it over, claiming a nondisclosure clause. Yee insisted it was part of the public record.

In announcing the investigation, state Attorney General Jerry Brown said, "This is not about Sarah Palin. The issues are public disclosure and financial accountability in organizations embedded in state-run universities."

Students & Faculty Protest Sarah Palin! (Fox News Put Their SPIN On It!)

Sarah Palin is nothing but a joke, yet a hero to rednecks! Next!

Trashy! Former "Cheetah Girl" Kiely Williams' New Video "Spectacular", Disney Won't Be Calling Her Anytime Soon!

It is pathetic and sad when one has to degrade themselves to try and make a name for themselves.. Former Cheetah Girl, from the popular Disney franchise, Kiely Williams decided to release this mess called a music vid titled "Spectacular"...

Not only is the video just trashy, smutty and low budget, it only shows that in this day and age, folks don't want to show true talent. As stated before, I'm sure Kiely doesn't have to worry about a "Cheetah Girl" reunion or any future Disney projects. You can understand someone wanting to grow up from Disney... but this is ridiculous! Where the heck is her management?? #EpicFail!

I suppose rumors stated by former group member Naturi about Kiely and Addrienne were a little true back in the day when they were in the group 3LW!

Finally! BET Is Set To Begin A New Season Of The Hit Show "The Game" After It Was Cancelled From The CW Network!

Soooo thrilled that the mega hit "The Game" is FINALLY returning for a new season via the BET network, afte it was prematurely cancelled on the CW Network! (Their Loss) Details below:

Via THR:

BET is inching closer to finalizing the deals for a new "Game."

The cable network is expected to announce at its upfront presentation this month that it is resurrecting the CW sitcom with original episodes.

The majority of the cast of "The Game," created by Mara Brock Akil, are expected to return.

Because the options on the actors had expired following the show's cancellation in May, BET had to negotiate new deals with them.

The network is expected to take lead in the production of the new episodes, with CBS Studios, which was behind "Game" when it was on CW, licensing the show to BET.

Also, "Game" is expected to have a new showrunner, Salim Akil, who will take over for his wife, Brock Akil.

Brock Akil will be an executive producer on the series. She serves as a consulting producer on ABC's freshman comedy "Cougar Town."

Salim Akil, who also will be an executive producer on "Game," was the main director on the show while it was on CW, helming 45 episodes, and co-wrote an episode with his wife. He previously did a stint as exec producer showrunner on Showtime's "Soul Food."

"Game," a spinoff from the long-running "Girlfriends," which the ICM-repped Brock Akil also created, was canceled in May after three seasons and after Brock Akil pitched the network an hourlong version of the show.

Following the cancellation, BET began preliminary talks with CBS Studios about possibly taking in the series with new originals. The cable net already runs repeats of "Game" and "Girlfriends."

BET's only previous stab at launching an original scripted series was the 2008 comedy "Somebodies," which ran for one season.

This is fab news!! Definitely Must See TV!!

Update! Erykah Badu Hit With Disorderly Conduct For Her Actions In Her Vid Window Seat!

Dallas police have announced that they’ve charged neosoul singer Erykah Badu with disorderly conduct for her nude video shoot on a downtown street.

Erykah Badu says her new video is about liberating herself from layers of inhibiting demons.

The singer will be issued a disorderly conduct citation carrying a $500 fine for stripping off all her clothes and feigning being shot in the head in Dallas's Dealey Plaza, where John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Police initially said no citizens complained after the video for "Window Seat" was filmed March 13, but after it hit the Internet one witness came forward: a woman with two children who said she was offended to see Badu disrobe in public, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Author Of The Book "Don't Bring Home A White Boy" Speaks On HLN! + Spotlight On Real Life BW/WM Interracial Couples!

Jill Scott Pens Commentary On Her Thoughts About Black Men/White Women Couples For Essence!

Jill Scott (currently starring in Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too) is a three-time Grammy Award-winning artist, writer, actress, philanthropist and mother. She wrote an editorial about her feelings regarding Black Men/White Women Couples. The article is below:

(From Essence.Com)

You know the moment when you realize that fine, accomplished brother is with a White woman? Let's call it "the wince." Three-time Grammy Award-winning artist, writer, actress, philanthropist, mother and all-around Renaissance woman, Jill Scott gets to the root of our feelings on the matter in the April issue of ESSENCE...

My new friend is handsome, African-American, intelligent and seemingly wealthy. He is an athlete, loves his momma, and is happily married to a White woman. I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped. But something in me just knew he didn't marry a sister. Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit...wince. I didn't immediately understand it. My face read happy for you. My body showed no reaction to my inner pinch, but the sting was there, quiet like a mosquito under a summer dress.

Was I jealous? Did the reality of his relationship somehow diminish his soul's credibility? The answer is not simple. One could easily dispel the wince as racist or separatist, but that's not how I was brought up. I was reared in a Jehovah's Witness household. I was taught that every man should be judged by his deeds and not his color, and I firmly stand where my grandmother left me. African people worldwide are known to be welcoming and open-minded. We share our culture sometimes to our own peril and most of us love the very notion of love. My position is that for women of color, this very common "wince" has solely to do with the African story in America.

When our people were enslaved, "Massa" placed his Caucasian woman on a pedestal. She was spoiled, revered and angelic, while the Black slave woman was overworked, beaten, raped and farmed out like cattle to be mated. She was nothing and neither was our Black man. As slavery died for the greater good of America, and the movement for equality sputtered to life, the White woman was on the cover of every American magazine. She was the dazzling jewel on every movie screen, the glory of every commercial and television show. She was unequivocally the standard of beauty for this country, firmly unattainable to anyone not of her race. We daughters of the dust were seen as ugly, nappy mammies, good for day work and unwanted children, while our men were thought to be thieving, sex-hungry animals with limited brain capacity.

We reflect on this awful past and recall that if a Black man even looked at a White woman, he would have been lynched, beaten, jailed or shot to death. In the midst of this, Black women and Black men struggled together, mourned together, starved together, braved the hoses and vicious police dogs and died untimely on southern back roads together. These harsh truths lead to what we really feel when we see a seemingly together brother with a Caucasian woman and their children. That feeling is betrayed. While we exert efforts to raise our sons and daughters to appreciate themselves and respect others, most of us end up doing this important work alone, with no fathers or like representatives, limited financial support (often court-enforced) and, on top of everything else, an empty bed. It's frustrating and it hurts!

Our minds do understand that people of all races find genuine love in many places. We dig that the world is full of amazing options. But underneath, there is a bite, no matter the ointment, that has yet to stop burning. Some may find these thoughts to be hurtful. That is not my intent. I'm just sayin'.

Shaunie O'Neal's new reality show “Basketball Wives” follows the wives, girlfriends and ex-wives of several current and former basketball players.

Shaunie O’Neal is the wife of Cleveland Cavaliers center, Shaquille O’Neal and they are currently going through a divorce.

Shaunie speaks about “Basketball Wives,” which premieres on VH1, April 11 at 10 p.m. ET.

The Wall Street Journal: What made you decide to do a reality show?

Shaunie O’Neal: I had this idea for a while now. People always ask, “What do you guys do behind the scenes?” I wanted to show the business side as well as as our charitable side. The other ladies are in the show more than I am.

Are you friends in real life with the other women on the show?

I know a couple of the other girls. The rest of them were put together for the show. We went through a whole casting thing.

Any advice for women involved with professional athletes?

Stay true to yourself because it’s easy to get lost as so and so’s wife. There’s a lot of whoring around on athlete’s part and you can lose your identity.

Do you still watch basketball games on a regular basis?

Now that basketball is not part of my everyday life I still enjoy and still care about it.

What can we expect from the show?

There’ll be some drink throwing, crying, family life and husband and wife drama.

Be sure to set your DVRs!!! This will be Must See TV!!

Erykah Badu Visits The "Chelsea Lately" Show To Discuss The Controversy Over Her New Vid & More!

Another "House N***A Gets Out Of Pocket On The Subject Of President Obama!!

Republican Corey Poitier, who is hoping to cinch Kendrick Meek's seat as a U.S. representative, had this to say about President Obama:

"Listen up, Buckwheat, this is not how it is done!''

Buckwheat of course was a 'Little Rascals' character in the famed 'Our Gang' short film comedies of the '30s and '40s. The term Buckwheat conjures up a pickaninny character, and the meaning of the word is viewed by many African Americans as degrading, disparaging and derogatory.

This imbecile says he has never taken the meaning of the word Buckwheat as disparaging, "People love Buckwheat," he says. He adds that as a child, he used to call his brother "Buckwheat" as a substitute word for "dummy."

(Blank Stare) This little "house negro" is a tripp!!! Heffa please!!

Spotted! Sandra Bullock Comes Out Of Seclusion To Visit A Friend!!

Sandra Bullock finally made a public appearance and came out of seclusion on Wednesday afternoon -- leaving her Hollywood Hills home to visit a friend in Beverly Hills, TMZ reported.

This is the first time Sandra Bullock has been seen in public since her husband Jesse James' adultery scandal exploded over two weeks ago.

Poor thang.. She has got to be going through a extremely difficult time. Not only did her hubby cheated, he has some serious "neo-nazi" issues going on!!
