Joy Bryant Gets Married


Ever since I saw her in Antwone Fisher I've been a big fan of Joy Bryant. Congrats to her and her new husband:
Actress JOY BRYANT has married her stuntman boyfriend DAVID POPE.
The pair wed during a private beach ceremony in Amagansett, New York on Saturday (28Jun08), according to People.com.

The Get Rich or Die Tryin' star, 31, was joined by 100 guests to celebrate the couple's nuptials. Bryant and Pope, 37, began dating after they met on the set of the actress' latest film Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins, where Pope worked as a stuntman.

Wedding guests reportedly received an e-mail invitation to the ceremony with one simple request: "Ladies, leave your Manolos at home."

Is Denise Richards Using Her Kids?


All the evidence seems to be pointing in that direction:
Is Denise Richards using her children to boost ratings for her flagging reality show? It’s possible.

“She wants to continue using the kids and (ex-husband) Charlie (Sheen) for ratings, and Charlie is determined to stop it,” a Sheen insider told OK! magazine.

Richards apparently thinks that Sheen set the precedent for having the kids on TV since he had daughter Sam appear on “Two and a Half Men.” She feels that Sam and Lola can only make her show more interesting to watch.

The Sheen source argues that her logic is flawed: “But Sam was only 8 months old at the time, was in a baby basket, and presented as a character for exactly 39 seconds,” the source told the magazine. Since Richards’ rep issued the standard denials, we’ll have to wait it out to see what happens.

The kids are in therapy, Charlie Sheen is a racist and now this? Talk about drama, you just know these kids' future isn't shaping up to be too bright.

Naomi Campbell Sentenced to 200 Hours For Air Rage


Will this chick ever learn to control her now notorious temper:

The supermodel Naomi Campbell has been sentenced to 200 hours – five working weeks – of community service for kicking and spitting at police officers after going "berserk" on a plane.

A packed Uxbridge magistrates court heard the notoriously choleric model plead guilty yesterday to assaulting two constables. She also admitted screaming abuse at a British Airways captain, but said little else.

Campbell's punishment will include anything from clearing church yards of rubbish to repairing park benches and playground equipment. The task will no doubt be familiar: last March she spent five days mopping floors and scrubbing lavatories in New York's sanitation department after hitting her maid on the head with a mobile phone. She pleased the paparazzi by wearing a different designer costume every morning.

She just epitomizes the stereotype of the "Angry Black Woman", thank goodness she only dates white dudes.

50 Cent Files Defamation Suit Against Babymama


50 finally does something that makes sense, after all when someone accuses you of trying to kill your own son, saying nothing is about the dumbest thing you can do:

Fifty Cent and his ex, Shaniqua Tompkins, are headed back to court again as the drama between the two continues to roar.

Fif wants the mother of his 11-year-old son Marquise to stop telling people that he's the one behind the early morning May 30 blaze at the Dix Hills home she lived in with their child and to let him see his son, according to New York's Daily News.

"He tried to kill me and his own child," Tompkins has declared. "I know this came from 50 Cent."

Arson investigators are looking into the fire as suspicious, but have not pointed the finger at Fif (born Curtis Jackson) as being involved.

His lawyers are accusing Tompkins of defamation.

"There comes a point where you can no longer sit on your hands and listen to her spread these falsehoods," 50's lawyer, Brett Kimmel, tells us. "Besides hurting his reputation, they have a damaging impact on their son."

R. Kelly Acquitted Of All Charges


Unbelievable:
CHICAGO - R. Kelly was acquitted of all charges Friday after less than a day of deliberations in his child pornography trial, ending a six-year ordeal for the R&B superstar.

Kelly dabbed his face with a handkerchief and hugged each of his four attorneys after the verdict — not guilty on all 14 counts — was read. The Grammy award-winning singer had faced 15 years in prison if convicted.

Minutes later, surrounded by bodyguards, he left the courthouse without comment. Dozens of fans screamed and cheered as he climbed into a waiting SUV.

“All I heard (from Kelly) while those 14 verdicts were being read was ‘Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus,”’ said Sam Adam Jr., one of his attorneys.

Prosecutors had argued that a video tape mailed to the Chicago Sun-Times in 2002 showed Kelly engaged in graphic sex acts with a girl as young as 13 at the time. Both Kelly, 41, and the now 23-year-old alleged victim had denied they were the ones on the tape. Neither testified during the trial.

I'm truly shocked that he got off. As talented as Robert is, his continual lust for younger women is sick--that was proven when he tried to marry a 15-year-old Aaliyah not too long ago. Just goes to show you that as long as you got enough cheddar, you can pretty much get yourself out of anything.

Katherine Heigl: Certifed Bitch


Now Hollywood's biggest bitch is screaming about the quality of writers on her hit show "Grey's Anatomy":
One day after Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl announced that she would drop out of this year's Emmy race, because "I do not feel I was given the material this season to warrant a nomination," a key show insider contacted EW.com to express regret that the actress publicly complained about the drama. “The show bent over backwards to accommodate her film schedule, and then she criticizes the show for lack of material?" the insider said. "It's an ungrateful slap in the face to the very writers responsible for her Emmy win in the first place.”

Heigl made the comments on June 12 after Gold Derbydiscovered the star's name was not on a list of Emmy contenders distributed by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. The omission was especially bizarre considering that Heigl won last year’s award for best supporting actress in a drama.

Critics jeered Heigl's performance early in the season, complaining about the romance between her character, Izzie, and George (T.R. Knight). But the actress shined in Grey's season finale when her character redeemed herself and her career at Seattle Grace.

This isn't the first time Heigl has publicly criticized the show that helped to make her a household name. Last year, the actress dropped out of salary renegotiations, reportedly because she felt the studio doesn't value her as much as it does her cohorts. ABC TV Studio fired back, insisting the Grey’s actress had been offered a substantial raise. Heigl has since received a salary bump.

Mind you, this is the same chick who said that Isiah Washington should just not speak in public anymore after she went on and on whining about his supposedly anti-gay treatment of her "best friend" and co-star TJ Knight. Well, maybe it's about time somebody slap her so she can wake up and take a piece of her own advice.

Janet and Michael Jackson Tour Together?


BreakingNews:
Janet Jackson is offering to open up for her brother Michael if he signs to a spectacular Las Vegas residency.

Jackson prompted speculation he would headline his own Sin City residency when an equity group linked to the Las Vegas Hilton helped him save his Neverland Ranch from foreclosure.

His younger sister Janet has no idea if he will go ahead with the show - but is extending an offer to make it go off with even more of a bang.

Speaking on BET network TV show '106 & Park' yesterday, she says: "I've heard that (story) for a while, but I don't know. "I would love to (open up for him)."
This isn't a bad idea and hey Janet could use something like this to raise her sagging album sales.

Diddy Laughs Off Cameron Diaz Romance Rumors


IOL.com:
Rap bachelor P Diddy has laughed off rumours he is romancing single Hollywood beauty Cameron Diaz.

The two were spotted together at a New York hot spot last month and looked close at last Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards in California.

However, the rapper insists their friendship is innocent.

He told the New York Daily News: "It is ridiculous that two celebrities of the opposite sex can't just hang out with a group of friends without it being reported as more than that. We are just friends."
I have no problem with Puff boning white chicks, but he should at least get one with an ass.

R.I.P. Bob Diddley


A legend passes on:
Rock legend Bo Diddley died this morning (June 2) of heart failure in Archer, Fla., according to his spokesperson. He was 79.

Diddley suffered a stroke last spring and had a heart attack last August, from which he never fully recovered.
Since then, he was undergoing rehabilitation near his Florida home. Funeral services are being planned for this weekend, with details to be announced.

Born Ellas Otha Bates McDaniel on Dec. 30, 1928, in McComb, Miss., Diddley holds the distinction of being the only musician in history to have a specific musical beat, or rhythmic pattern, named after him. The "Bo Diddley beat" blends equal parts rock'n'roll rhythm and gospel shout in its "bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp" pattern, which became an enduring staple of popular music. His songs, a tasteful blend of blues and R&B elements, were among the earliest true rock'n'roll recordings.
