Kandi (Of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" and formerly of Xscape) premieres her new single "Leave You" LISTEN.


Kanye West announced via twitter that he and Jay-Z are going to drop a 5 song album called Watch the Throne. A release date has not been announced but we have the first single from the album called Monster which features none other than Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, and Bon Iver.


Sometimes 50 is funny. He took to his Twitter page to be the hater we all know him to be.

If you don't know by now Paris Hilton got busted recently for cocaine - although she claims it's not hers. Well according to 50....

"Paris got cought with some cocaine last night Man that b**ch been sniffin that yola. We was in mia a couple yrs ago she was gettin fucked up."

50 also blasted Kanye West, who also recently joined Twitter.

"I just looked at kanye page what the f**k kind a spaced out tweets are those...f**k that I aint never looking at that s**tagain."


For a moment, L Boogie was back to her old self in NY this Saturday performing at the Rock the Bells tour.

Toward the end of her set — which included some Score songs and a few surprises, in addition to Miseducation tracks — Hill invited her children and some of the A-list attendees to the stage. During a reggae breakdown of "Fugee La," Hill brought out Mary J. Blige. BeyoncĂ©, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz and Chris Rock soon followed.

"Where's Jay?" Hill said. "C'mon, man, this is New York." And so the Jiggaman came out and saluted the fans. Next was John Legend and Jerry Wonder.

"It was love back. Love back. Love back," Hill said later in her trailer about the parade of stars. Outside, Busta Rhymes — who was a guest performer of A Tribe Called Quest — came and said hello to her kids. "Reciprocity. It was wonderful to see everybody. I was so touched. I wanted everybody else to share in that moment. I wanted everybody else to see them."

GV Says: On a different note, I hear she's back in the studio.


WTF is this stunt about??

So on Friday heads got buzzing when both MCs wrote on their Twitter pages that they had wed.

"Please refer to @ as Mrs. Aubrey Drake Graham and dont stare at her too long. She's finally mine. :)," Drake tweeted. Minaj also wrote "Yes, its true. Drake and I tied the knot."

Now Nicki Minaj and Drake, are no longer together. Only a day after announcing their union on the social-networking site, Minaj tweeted that she and Drizzy have called it quits.

"Dear Barbz, My husband Drake and I have decided to have our marriage annulled. We'll maintain joint custody. Luv, HB," the Young Money Barbie wrote on Saturday. When asked by Twitter fan MissBrownBear who they were sharing custody of, Minaj "All our SONS."

Minaj's announcement comes after reps for the artists denied that they had ever made it to the altar.

GV Says: WHY people. Do you all not get enough attention.


This girl is seriously on bump-watch

"She's very nurturing," Nick told reporters at the US Open's Arthur Ashe Kids Day event in New York Saturday. "She's nurturing with me and makes me breakfast at anytime and that's my favorite food. It would be like 3 o'clock in the morning and she will still make me waffles. She'll be the best mom."


So Usher is back to his media whore ways and using his divorce to pub his new EP Versus which I think came out last week.

"I appreciate the relationship for what it was," he says. "Even though it didn't work out, I'm glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn't be married."

So what went wrong? Usher says that shortly after the birth of their second child, he and Foster started to disagree over everything from parenting style to his busy schedule.

"We're two different people," he says, "and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent."

The singer, 31, who sat down with PEOPLE in his Atlanta-area home, says that the couple's priority continues to be their children.

"We had to put our issues aside and focus on raising them," he says. "There will never be another mother for my sons, and I'll always be their father."

GV Says: Dear Usher, please keep your personal business out of the limelight. It always ends up a mess for you.


Look who's bouncing back after admitting that she did try to commit suicide (still can't believe that).

After attempting suicide, Fantasia Barrino is ready to get on with her life. And her first stop on the comeback tour – an impromptu concert in Las Vegas.

With Demi Moore and Soleil Moon Frye (remember Punky Bewster) on hand, Barrino took to the stage Friday night at Palm's Casino Resort's Rain Nightclub to belt out four songs and briefly detail her recent dark days.

"They thought I was finished, they thought I was done," she told the crowd. "I would never ever stop, I don't care what no one says."

At the club celebrating the release of her newest album, Back To Me, the former American Idol winner took to the stage unbeknownst to the crowd, singing "Bittersweet," and also covering Prince's "Purple Rain" and Rufus and Chaka Khan's "Tell Me Something Good."

"I was in the hospital but now I bounce back," she said. "Don't ever let your haters stop you. Don't ever let them stop your destiny."

Earlier in evening Barrino, donning a silver dress and knee-high boots, dined at N9NE Steakhouse with hotel co-owner Gavin Maloof. While dining, Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps stopped at her table to say hello.

GV Says: Although this is still a mess, I'm glad to see that she's not going to the extreme over this man.

B is being accused of lifting the leggings design that appears in this ad.

It seems the designer from Iceland's E-label shop was told Beyonce indeed purchased a pair of the E-Label leggings from a TopShop in London. In ads for her new Dereon line, she is seen wearing the leggings in question, and one of the owners of E-Label noticed it.

Heba Hallgrimsdottir, one of the owners, said “This is naturally huge and I am still half in shock. I didn’t [recognize] straight away that this was her own label: I just thought she was wearing our leggings. It is practically just copy/paste.”

E-Label's leggings design isn't copyrighted but they believe the large coverage of Beyonce's purchase will be enough to prove plagiarism. The Icelandic clothing label isn't sure if they will sue saying, "I have only just heard about this and no decision has yet been taken. We need to inspect her brand’s trousers closer because, according to law, it is not copied if a certain number of things have been changed from the original design"
Well, here are E-Label's leggings from the site. Hmmmmmm...I'm just saying.

So when will Beyonce have babies....when she pleases.

"My ambition is to continue to learn about the world and to eventually have a family," the singer-actress, who turns 29 on Sept. 4, told You magazine, published by Britain's Mail on Sunday.

Pressed for specifics, Knowles – who was the subject of pregnancy rumors last winter – says she can offer "no dates, no times – it will happen when I am ready."

"Probably the biggest challenge in my life is time – making sure I have time to be a wife, to be a singer, to be a songwriter, to be an actor and still have time for my clothing line and now for my perfume [Heat]."

But she gets by – usually with a little help from her girlfriends.

"I love being a woman and I love being a friend to other women," she says. "I think we learn a lot from our female friends – female friendship is very, very important. It's good to support each other, and I do try to put that message in my music."


Looks like Fanny took someone's advice and is getting it together.

She will return to the spotlight beginning August 24, when she performs on Good Morning America, with numerous additional appearances scheduled over the next couple weeks.

"I can't thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time," the star said in Monday's statement. "It has given me the motivation to get back to work ...I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do."

What the 'H' is happening in New York. I read this in NY Daily News. The pic was too gross to post.

Bedbugs are taking over New York.

A new Daily News-Marist poll suggests that The City That Never Sleeps is probably too busy itching: One in 10 New Yorkers has now battled bedbugs in their home.

That's twice as many as the city estimated were plagued by the pests in 2009.

The poll results suggest that more than 800,000 New Yorkers have had bloodsucking bedbugs crawling in their sheets.

"I got all chewed up," said Margaret Martinez, 61, of the Bronx, one of the 11% of poll respondents who reported having personal run-ins with the tiny bloodthirsty insects.

"I woke up and I had bites all over my arms and my face. I was all swollen," she said.

From swanky glass lofts to creaky tenement walkups, the plague of parasites appears to have spread fairly evenly across the five boroughs.

But money makes a difference: Twice as many people who made less than $50,000 a year had bedbugs, compared with those with higher incomes. Only 2% of Republicans had bedbugs, while 12% of Democrats did.

Though infestations at downtown hotels and boutiques get most of the attention, Manhattan is the borough with fewest workplace bedbugs, according to the survey conducted by the Marist poll for the Daily News.

Ten percent of respondents in Queens, Staten Island and Brooklyn reported bedbugs at work, as did 8% of Bronx residents, but just 3% of Manhattanites were afflicted.

Bedbugs are hard to see and hard to kill. The size of a rice grain, they only move around at night and can go many months without feeding. They spread by hitching rides on clothes, luggage or used furniture.

Nearly eradicated by DDT in the 1940s, they are back - and extra pesticide-resistant.

Upper West Side City Councilwoman Gale Brewer said panicked bedbug calls to 311 shot up 33% last year.

"Our phone rings off the hook with bedbug questions," she said. "There are many other stores with bedbugs out there that are not in the press."

The city recently allocated half a million dollars in anti-bedbug funds and is considering naming a bedbug "czar" so New Yorkers can sleep tight.

The News poll found half the city doesn't think officials are doing enough to stamp out the bloodsuckers.

The poll also found 67% of New Yorkers think the best way to discover bedbugs is to see their bites. But scientists say only 50% of people are allergic to bedbug secretions - the rest never develop visible bites.

"There's just not a lot of common knowledge about bedbugs," said Dan Kass, an assistant commissioner at the city's Department of Health.

"We're now at the point with the resurgence of bedbugs that everyone will have to start looking for them."

Could the firm be getting back together? Truth be told it def wouldn't hurt any of their careers at this point.

"We all sat down and conversed," she told MTV News recently. "We all know if it's not the main four, the only four, it can't be. Nas, myself, AZ and Cormega, that is the Firm. There is no other artist that can substitute for Nas, AZ, Cormega and myself. If all four of us can't do it, it can't be done."

"AZ and myself are inseparable throughout the years. He can walk in my house and go inside the refrigerator, get whatever he wants," she said. "Cormega is like my brother. You know Nas, Nas has gone his way. He got married and has gone through his own stuff. I went to prison, lost my hearing. We all just had our lives take different turns. We realized that everywhere we go, people are like, 'The Firm, the Firm.' A was like, 'We gotta do this.' That's when the rumors started."

During a recent concert in New York, Brown brought out AZ and Cormega. She says that before they all can fully reunite, Nas and Mega have to work things out.

"He and Cormega — everybody knows the legendary beef between them," she assessed. "So, [the challenge is] getting them in the same room together. Nas had a concert at Lincoln Center two Christmases ago. AZ wasn't there, but me and Cormega came out. So they can get in the same room together. And they can kind of alleviate the bullsh-- and say, 'Let's get this money now.'

We're older, let's get this money. "We started as babies," she added. "We were babies, like '96, '97, selling millions of records together. We have history together. I'm the one that's close to each one of them. I'm the link that can bring each one of them together. So it's Nas getting in the same room with Mega. And then we're good. His personal feelings with Mega, they have to work that out. Once they do that ... They have a history that AZ and I can't relate to. There's something they have to work out. I know I can get them together."


Juve has been sentenced to a suspended three month jail sentence and six months probation. The sentence comes after a guilty plea to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charges dating back to February in Louisiana. Reports say the charges were based on an anonymous complaint of marijuana smoke coming from Juvie's home.


How soon they forget...

So much for trying to woo Sandra back. We hear that Jesse James was spotted having dinner with LA Ink star Kat Von D in Las Vegas Saturday night.

Settling into a table at Palms Casino Resort's N9NE, the duo got cozy by sitting right next to each other.

Toward the end of the meal, the duo were spotted holding hands.

They continued holding hands as they left dinner and headed to a black Mercedes that James was driving.

GV Says: Didn't he just move move to be closer to Sandra....just saying.

What the sam hill is going on Fanny????

For the first time since the news broke of her alleged affair, Fantasia Barrino and Antwaun Cook, the man whose marriage she has been accused of breaking up, were seen together Friday near her Charlotte, N.C., home.

The two were spotted visiting a local park and appeared to be in deep conversation – all while cameras, presumably for her VH1 reality show, Fantasia for Real, captured the conversation.

The outing comes two days after Fanny was released from the hospital after overdosing on aspirin and a sleep aid.

Court documents filed last week by Cook's wife, Paula, allege that her husband and Barrino had been having an affair since August 2009 and that the two also made a sex tape. She has also threatened to sue the singer for alienation of affection and criminal conversation.

Barrino's manager has said Barrino believed the Cooks had separated and is now "heartbroken and is sorry for any pain she may have caused."

GV Says: Really Fanny. Paula is not going to be impressed with this.

And people are still talking about this tattoo....who cares that much. Stop it people!


After being released from jail yesterday, DMX was pulled over for a minor traffic infraction.

And police soon realized that he was driving without a valid driver’s license, TMZ reports.

The singer’s manager claims that DMX was driving a rental car on his way home from the recording studio around 11 p.m. when he was pulled over on Sunset Boulevard.

Luckily, he wasn’t arrested, but he will have to appear in court in the near future.

TMZ reports that the police allowed a passenger in the car to drive DMX home.


People have just lost their minds. The NY Daily News reports:

Radio host, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, has issued an apology for repeatedly using the N-word several times during an on-air conversation with a caller that she said was being "hypersensitive" to racism.

In an apology issued on her website, Schlessinger said she was trying to make a philosophical point, but was wrong and soon after the talk realized she had made a "horrible mistake."

"I am very sorry. And it won't happen again," she said.

During Tuesday's conversation, Jade — an African-American woman with a white husband — called in to ask for help because her spouse's friends made racist comments about her in their home. Schlessinger said Jade was being too sensitive.

When Jade asked if the N-word was offensive, Schlessinger said "black guys say it all the time," then went on to repeat the word several times. She then said she hears the word a lot and that people shouldn't automatically be offended.

"I guess you don't watch HBO or listen to any black comedians," the doctor said when Jade objected. Schlessinger also said if the caller did not have a sense of humor about race she shouldn't be in an interracial marriage.

Critics are outraged. On Thursday, the Rev. Al Sharpton called the incident "despicable" on CNN.

GV Says: It blows my mind everyday how insensitive some Caucasians can be to minorities. It's so easy to cry hypersensitivity when you're in the majority and you're not faced with snide remarks from co-workers, department store clerks following you, restaurant hosts accidentally skipping over you. When you haven't had to deal with a lifetime of small slights that eventually add up to something sizable it's so easy to say someone is being hypersensitive.


Dear Vivica Fox, leave these young boys alone.

So it seems Vivica's much younger club-promoter boyfriend Slimm's decision to break up - then make up - was all through a press release.


On Wednesday, Slimm, the Atlanta-based co-founder of Plush Blue Entertainment, sent out a release stating that he and Fox were finished.

"Hey this is Slimm, unfortunately me and Vivica are no longer dating," read the promoter's pronouncement. "After eight months, it's time to go our separate ways. In life you can love and have chemistry with a person, but flaws can sometimes outweigh the relationship. I wish her the best and I know she feels the same. Thanks."

A source close to the situation reports that Slimm's decision to send out the first release to a number of ­media outlets was prompted by an argument he had with Fox, 46, who has been commuting from her home in L.A. to Atlanta to make time with her young beau, who's not even 30.

But not even 24 hours later, Slimm had a change of heart and sent out a second release to announce he and Fox were working it out.

"I want to clear the air about the rushed statement released yesterday about Vivica and I breaking up. Sometimes a person may act out of anger," he explained, and then apologized for "overreacting instead of letting time take its course."

"Vivica is an important part of my life and I would never try to hurt her," he concluded. "Thanks for supporting us as we figure things out."

When we contacted for a comment, Viv replied, "Slimm and I r fine!" she emails us. "All relationships have their ups and their downs." She continues, "I'm soo proud that Slimm was man enough to clear up the air" via the second press release.

"He is a very good man with a great heart!" wrote Fox, now touring in the play "Cheaper to Keep Her."

Does this --ish run in the family...

Foxy Brown's brother/rapper Gavin "Pretty Boy" Marchand was among the men arrested for allegedly using a stolen credit card to purchase designer clothes in Manhattan.

Gavin Marchand was arrested last Saturday (August 7th) for allegedly possessing a forged American Express card to purchase almost $8,000 worth of clothes from the Hermes store on Madison Avenue.

According to the New York Post, police were inside the store conducting surveillance when Gavin, 35, and three associates arrived at the high-end boutique.

A 31-year-old man named Warren David allegedly attempted to use the card. When the men attempted to leave the store, police approached them, but the driver, Derwin Benoit, led police on a 90-mph chase, before he finally pulled over and surrendered.

"I don't know anything about that," Foxy Brown told NY Post as she left a grand jury hearing yesterday, for allegedly violating a restraining order against her neighbor last month.

Gavin Marchand briefly served as Foxy Brown's spokesman/manager.

T.I. was spotted out and about on Monday at Eden Lounge in DC with Idris Elba, his co-star in "Takers," and fellow rapper Wale. He ordered 18 bottles of Ciroc and handed out extra bottles to partygoers in good spirits, but when a girl lit up a cigarette near their VIP table on the outdoor terrace, T.I. told her to move out of the way. Later in the night, Elba took over the DJ booth, dropping a full set. Wale grabbed the microphone and joined him for a performance.


Beyonce has gone super blonde for her latest House of Dereon spread.


Jennifer Lopez won’t be a judge on American Idol after all, according to a source close to the situation.

She had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season but the deal fell apart.

“Her demands got out of hand,” says the source. “Fox had just had enough.”

With Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres both departing the talent search, the network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler.


So Foxy Brown says she's "all about telling the truth" after testifying Wednesday before a grand jury investigating a blowup with one of her neighbors - who police say she mooned.

"I'm happy to have a chance to tell the truth about what happened," she said as she walked out of Brooklyn Supreme Court in a black Balanciaga blazer and glittery Chanel brooch. "Today my focus is on telling the truth."

Foxy was inside the courthouse for three hours and no immediate decision was made about whether she will face a felony charge of violating a restraining order the woman had against her.

"It feels so good to tell the truth," she added. "This thing has been such a nightmare."

Foxy is accused of violating a restraining order obtained by Arlene Raymond after a fight in which Brown allegedly clocked her with a Blackberry in 2007.

Foxy allegedly cursed Raymond out, bent over and thrust her exposed butt out, authorities said.

"B--ch, what are you looking at?" she yelled, according to the criminal complaint. "Kiss my ass."

Foxy, whose real name is Inga Marchand, refused to discuss the incident or reveal what she told the grand jury.

Her lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, said Foxy was on a mission to clear the air about the spat with Raymond.

"We're here for justice," he said.


A fool and his money....

Allegedly Birdman purchased a $2.1 mill all red and extra hot Bugatti Veyron. Apparently the European sports car is also very expensive to maintain. The estimated cost of upkeep is around $300,00 yearly. The Wall Street Journal claims that owning this Bugatti is similar to owning a private jet.


After some tough days, Fantasia Barrino is on the mend – and out of the hospital.

She was hospitalized in Charlotte, N.C., Monday for an overdose of aspirin, but she was released from the hospital late Wednesday, says her manager Brian Dickens.

"She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans," Dickens said. "She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration."

The medical scare came just after Fanny, 26, was named in a court filing alleging that she was having an affair with a married man. The singer denied she was responsible for breaking up the marriage of Paula and Cook. However, on Tuesday admitted having dated Cook "off and on for 11 months."


OK....I think we're nearing our tattoo limit...

Rihanna revealed yet another tattoo, this one on her neck, while out and about in Manhattan on Wednesday.

Written in delicate cursive script, the fresh stamp reads "rebelle fleur," which means "rebel/rebellious flower" in French.

Back in January, she revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that she then had "approximately 13" tattoos.

This is truly a shame....I hate that he played this girl like this. And although we can see through his bull, she's just a kid. You know how it is when you're in love ladies....

Just weeks after duping his fiance Bristol Palin, Levi Johnston is set to star in a new reality project chronicling - get this folks - his surprise run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

That's the same office Sarah Palin held before she became governor, a position that later launched her to the national stage as the failed GOP veep candidate.

"The more I think about it and look into it, I think there's a possibility we can make it happen," Johnston told

"It's something I want to do," he said of his improbable run for public office.

The project is under development at Stone and Company Entertainment, the same production house that brought us Ivana Trump's "Ivana Young Man" in 2006.

Titled "Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office," it will chronicle Johnston's dual pursuits in Hollywood and his "red-neck" life as a single dad, skilled hunter, avid biker and wannabe politician looking for love and success back home in Alaska, according to a Stone and Co. press release.

It might not be as far-fetched as it sounds, the company claims, considering Wasilla's current mayor won with just 466 votes.

So it ain't so Fanny...don't let these people drive you to the end no matter what they say girl...

Fantasia was hospitalized Monday in Charlotte, N.C., and treated for a "medication overdose."
She was reportedly rushed to Carolinas Medical Center-Pineville around 8:55 p.m., the same day she denied allegations she had broken up a marriage. A rep for the singer reportedly confirmed to that she was rushed to the hospital.
Her condition is not life-threatening, sources tell media.
On Monday, Barrino spoke out against a North Carolina's woman's claims that her alleged affair with Antwaun Cook caused his marriage to end. A lawyer for the singer said the woman, Paula Cook, used Barrino's name to "sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids."
The singer's manager, Brian Dickens, added, "Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges."


Wow...and we thought Eric and DeShawn were the boring ones...

So Eric Snow just had a baby with his old college flame.

This is all happening while they’re still in the midst of their divorce proceedings.

Straight From The A! has the scoop:

According to sources, the photo above is Eric’s new daughter. His mistress, Marisela Alvarado, reportedly gave birth in a Michigan Hospital on July 14th to a healthy 8-pound baby girl whom the couple have named Ava Maria Snow.

Eric and his soon-to-be Ex Wife, Deshawn Snow formerly of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” are in the middle of high profile divorce case and it is reported that he is worth $20 million dollars.

Early reports are that he may have to shell out an estimated $8 million dollars to his wife along with their Atlanta Estate which the couple shared with their three sons.

Deshawn is said to be working on a Disney project with their 3 boys and hopefully she’s keeping her head up. Divorce or not, Eric welcoming a daughter in this world can’t possibly be easy on her.

Just days after announcing his engagement was off with Bristol Palin, Levi is right back out there...SMH. reports Johnston signed a reality TV deal over the weekend, just days after Bristol Palin said she broke off their engagement over his thirst for the limelight.

The new show will shoot first in Los Angeles and then head back to Alaska, TMZ reported. It's not yet clear what the format will be, but several networks are reportedly interested.

The on-again off-again high school sweethearts shocked family and friends last month with an US Magazine cover announcing their engagement after a long period of estrangement.

The rekindled romance was short-lived, falling apart shortly after the National Enquirer reported that Johnston's ex-girlfriend, Lanesia Garcia, was pregnant.

Lanesia claims that Levi is not the father, but Bristol told that Johnston had "no remorse" after he admitted the dalliance and possible pregnancy the very same day they announced their secret wedding plans with splashy photos featuring their 20-month-old son, Tripp.

"The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family," Bristol told in a tearful interview. "He's just obsessed with the limelight, and I got played."

Levi, meanwhile, attended the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles Sunday with Brittani Senser, the singer behind the video in which he'll co-star.

The video, reportedly shooting this week, is about two lovers driven apart by the woman's meddling mother.

"The ring's off, but we're friends," Johnston told at the event, referring to Bristol.

"You know, it's tough," he said of the break-up. "It's not something that I wanted, but life goes on."

GV Says: Wow...this is horrible.


This picture is interesting. So what does she do for a living?

"Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great. You go for three days and get some sun and it's time to go home," his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, tells the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, on newsstands Aug. 17.

"It will definitely be an adjustment, but we'll make it," she adds. "We're not complaining. Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I'm with him. I just love him so much."

GV Says: SMH....


I love the wording of this statement. Funny thing is she can't deny dating this married which REALLY is the bottom line.

"Fantasia is certain that she is not responsible for the deterioration of [their] marriage," the singer's manager, Brian Dickens, said in a statement Monday.

Court documents filed last week by Paula Cook allege that her husband, Antwaun Cook, and Barrino began a "covert adulterous affair" in August 2009 and that the two made a sex tape.

"Fantasia will weather this storm with the dignity and grace that she has exemplified throughout a life in which she has repeatedly overcome obstacles and challenges," adds her manager.

Fantasia's lawayer also blasted the woman's allegations and said the Idol champ was dragged into the couple's breakup for media attention.

"Mrs. Cook gratuitously included claims about Fantasia to sensationalize that litigation and to insure that her tale would be picked up by tabloids," lawyer Gena Morris tells "The fact that she would seek such publicity in a case involving her children is particularly disgraceful.”

GV Says: Although I doubt this bitter wife will get a dime at the end of the day, she did accomplish her goal which was to put Fantasia on blast.


Looks like MJ is planting roots in Charlotte.

Kimora Lee Simmons and her ex husband, music mogul Russell Simmons, are putting many of their possessions – including an Andy Warhol piece – up for sale.

Dozens of eager shoppers waited in line outside of the 3.96-acre estate Lee once shared with her ex, music mogul Russell Simmons, for the chance to check out some of the items up for grabs.

"I never expected the turnout to be this great," Lee said in a statement. "Seeing the excitement in people's eyes when they enter my home, find that perfect item or happen upon a vintage steal is priceless."

Some of the priciest pieces included a $200,000 Versace bed, $7,500 dinner plates, $50,000 rugs and $10,000 tables.

Not everything at the cash-only sale was expensive – and there were bargains to be found. "I bought a bread holder for $8," one savvy shopper told reporters. There was also a room full of glasses, cups, martini glasses and mugs, priced from around $10 to $30.

What's done in the dark always comes to light....

So for months Fantasia has denied being booed up with a married man. But now the man's wife, Paula Cook, has accused Fanny of making sex tapes with her husband according to court papers filed in North Carolina last week.

Fanny is named in the lawsuit between Antwaun Cook and his wife, Paula Cook, who is filing for divorce from her husband of nearly five years.

Fanny allegedly met her new beau when he was working at T-Mobile in Stonecrest and began a "covert adulterous affair."

Paula Cook claims her husband and Barrino have also taped their sexual encounters and that the singer once told her, "He don't want you...maybe next time that you get a husband you'll know how to keep him....That's why he is here with me."

GV Says: Not a good look Fanny.

This chick has gone from the underground gossip mags to mainstream People mag...

Laurence Fishburne's daughter is speaking out about her controversial decision to enter the entertainment industry by becoming a porn star.

"Being in an adult film is not a big deal to me," Montana Fishburne, 18, tells PEOPLE. "It's something I always wanted to do. I have always been comfortable in my body and with my sexuality."

And no, she's not hoping her adult film, which will be released by Vivid Entertainment on Aug. 10, will spawn a mainstream acting career. "I am not in porn to get into acting. I am in porn because I wanted to be in porn," she says bluntly.

The daughter of the CSI star, an Academy Award nominated actor, said she didn't seek her parents' approval before signing on for the film.

"I had already filmed it by the time they knew so I didn't give them a chance to talk me out of it," says Montana, who moved out of her father's house last year upon turning 18, "so I could pursue what I want to do without being constrained by them."

Her father is understandably devastated, she confesses.

"I hear through relatives that he's upset but I haven't talked to him directly for him to tell me his feelings," she admits, saying that when she did break the news, he reacted with stunned silence.

"I hope it's not hurting him. It wasn't done to hurt him," she says. "But I think it will take time and talking through the issues. Eventually, I hope he will be proud of me."

Laurence Fishburne has yet to comment.

GV Says: This is absolutely disgusting. It is beyond disturbing that someone would tear down their reputation, soul and family for fame aka smoking mirrors.


So Matt Barnes and Gloria have canceled their wedding...yep...that's what's up!

So you may remember Gloria Govan was on the show 'Basketball Wives' toting the perfect relationship. The two were preparing for a wedding on August 12. Then....

supposedly....many of the guests received the news of cancellation via text message. When they replied and asked what happened the only response was, "Please respect my privacy."

GV Says: I don't wish bad on anyone but THAT'S WHAT'S UP when you tote yourself as perfection.


Oh no she didn' this week the DC housewives hit the View and the View hosts kept it real with White House gatecrashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Michaele and other cast members were on "The View" - to promote tonight's launch of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of D.C." Neither Goldberg nor Tareq Salahi were part of the interview.

As Michaele recounted a drink-throwing dispute between Tareq and one of the wives, Goldberg walked on stage, touched her shoulder, and said, "Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please."

Tareq Salahi, upset that Goldberg touched his wife, had an "elevated and heated" exchange after the live telecast.

"Oh, if you'd like us to, we can," Michaele replied as Goldberg walked away. After the show, a sobbing Michaele fled to a security office, saying she felt attacked. The Salahis claimed Goldberg got physical with Michaele; Goldberg confronted her and the F-bombs flew.

"As the broadcast clearly shows, the accusation was completely unfounded," a "View" spokeswoman said. "After being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally."

GV Says: They've got the wrong one baby...

Go MJB! She broke Home Shopping Network records recently.

According to a press release from HSN, the singer’s new fragrance, My Life, broke records on July 31 by selling more than 60,000 units during about six hours of air time on the shopping channel.

Part of the proceeds went to benefit Blige’s charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, Inc. (FFAWN).

“I am thrilled with the success of My Life, the experience on HSN with Carol's Daughter and the overwhelming donations to FFAWN," the press release quoted the nine-time Grammy Award winner as saying. "I can't wait to share another touch of my heart. Thank you to all my fans – new and old – for being there for me."

Blige also took to Twitter to thank supporters. "Fam!! We did it!!! We broke records with the My Life fragrance on HSN!!! and made history once again!!! 50K sold!!!" she tweeted before the final tally of units sold was counted.

According to StyleList, the previous record holder was Blige’s former musical mentor, Sean "Diddy" Combs, who sold his Sean John fragrances for men and women on HSN back in December. The site said Blige outsold Combs in both sales and revenue, grossing an estimated $2.7 million.

My Life is the first celebrity fragrance developed by Carol’s Daughter.


Happy birthday Mr. President

Today, President Obama celebrated his 49th birthday. He fled the empty White House mansion and headed for a more intimate celebration with longtime friends in his Chicago hometown.

We hear he's been living a bachelor's life for the past several days with first lady Michelle Obama and daughter Sasha visiting Spain and daughter Malia spending the month away at an undisclosed camp.

Of course Mrs. Obama and Sasha phoned in their happy birthday wishes, followed by a lunchtime call from Malia.

"Needless to say ... both those calls were the highlights of his day," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters who traveled with Obama aboard Air Force One.

GV Says: Speaking of Mrs. Obama, she made Vanity Fair's best dressed list.


Hello Twitter...hello problems for Kanye. So after gracing us with his presence on Twitter, Kanye finally picked a person to follow - Steven Holmes. Only thing is, Steven doesn't want to fame.

Initially, Holmes seemed excited by the connection, tweeting , "Holy [expletive] bro thx for following!" But the Brit quickly changed his tune once the full glare of the limelight hit.

Speaking with his local paper, the Coventry Telegraph, The Nottingham University student sounded far from enthused by the global attention he says has led to him turning down interview requests from media outlets around the world.

“I didn’t want to talk to any of them,” Holmes is quoted as saying. “Fame has never appealed to me. It’s vacuous.”

He went on to say that “Before this weekend I thought it would be cool to have a celebrity following me on Twitter but now I think it’s really not worth it.”

Holmes reiterated that stance on his Twitter page when he tweeted “This has been completely surreal and I really have no desire for this attention i'm just a normal person” and later added that he will not be speaking with any other media outlets.

GV Says: Kanye....unfollow this fool.


In perusing the news I found a man who has admitted what I have kept secret for years....

I love McDonald's fish sandwiches....I want to save my dignity though by saying I hate their burgers.

"I’m sorry, I know it is the height of foodie irresponsibility even to admit to setting foot inside the Evil Death Star that is McDonald’s, but the mega-chain’s Filet-O-Fish sandwiches are perfection on a bun. (The editor-in-chief of Saveur likes McDonald’s? Call the President!) From the crisp wedge of battered, fried fish to the dainty dab of tartar sauce, they are a miracle of food science. I remember that the first thing I wanted to eat upon returning the States after spending ten months in a South Indian village sleeping on a mat and eating a strict vegetarian diet was a Filet-O-Fish sammy. They are that important to me."

Seriously...not a good look

Four days after marrying A.Keys, Swizz Beatz gathered some buddies – and bubbly – to celebrate.

With his new brother-in-law by his side, Swizz got loose.

He was spotted hitting up a club in Porto Cervo, Italy, Tuesday night with some friends – and by the looks of it, their guys' night out was filled with plenty of bottle popping. In fact, he seems to have been showered in the bubbly.

GV Says: Because we have no better to spend our money than to buy champagne and then pour it on one another.


So no news here...I just thought this was funny and true at the same time.

Julia Roberts has said no to plastic surgery on her face:

"I want my kids to know when I'm pissed, when I'm happy and when I'm confounded. Your face tells a story and it shouldn't be a story about your drive to the doctor's office."
