The women of South Beach have two words for Halle Berry: Watch out! Berry’s new man, Versace model Gabriel Aubry, is so popular with the opposite sex, said our source, “he makes [Berry’s ex] Eric Benet look tame.” Benet is a self-confessed sex addict. While Berry went to pal Angela Bassett’s baby shower last weekend, Aubry was in Miami where he drove his vintage Camaro convertible and “chased young women” around the clock. A source said, “He wants to be famous, and he will use Halle to get there. He has a place on the beach and he pretty much chases whatever is around.” But Wilhelmina models co-owner Sean Patterson said, “I was with him this weekend. The craziest thing he did was play a round of golf.” (more)

– As many of you have already noticed, Terri McMillan’s ex Jonathan Plummer appears in this month issue of Click magazine. I have got to get my hands on this! Visit the website for more details.

The poor man’s version of Bey-Z strikes again! Question: Does Ashanti ever close her damn mouth? I mean nothing can possibly be that funny all the time.

Mase calls Dip Set “monkeys” meanwhile he is a Gorilla.

– Guess what other famous kid is on myspace? Thanks
Doc!

Poor Jim Jones.

Coretta Scott Kings Passes Away

January 31, 2006

An Icon Dies

coretta

Coretta Scott King, who turned a life shattered by her husband’s assassination into one devoted to enshrining his legacy of human rights and equality, has died. She was 78. Markel Hutchins, a close family friend of the Kings, told The Associated Press he spoke early this morning with Bernice King, who confirmed her mother’s passing. Former Mayor Andrew Young said on The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Web site that Bernice King found her mother at about 1 a.m.

Young, who was a former civil rights activist and was close to the King family, told NBC’s “Today” show: “I understand that she was asleep last night and her daughter went in to wake her up and she was not able to and so she quietly slipped away. Her spirit will remain with us just as her husband’s has.” Efforts by The Associated Press to reach the family were unsuccessful. They did not immediately return phone calls, but flags at the King Center were lowered to half-staff Tuesday morning. (more)

Hollywood big names like Tyra Banks, Nicole Richie, Lenny Kravitz, Macy Gray, and Jessica Simpson all came out to help celebrate Benny Medina’s birthday. Star and Al also showed up looking fab. Looks like everyone had a great time! Click here for more pictures.

Isiah Thomas ‘Hasn’t Been A Good Dad’

Isiah Thomas’ 19-year-old love child spoke out about his scandalridden dad for the first time yesterday, saying the Knick president won’t even return his calls. Marc Edward Thomas Dones, 19, says he couldn’t care less about Thomas – – or his current sexual-harassment suit — because the basketball star refuses to have a relationship with him.

I don’t care about what’s going on with him now — that’s his concern,” the aspiring writer told The Post yesterday while walking his dogs outside his suburban Detroit home. “Our lives are separate. He lives his and I live mine.” “He hasn’t been a good dad to me. He’s never returned my calls — that’s just him.” Dones, whose arched eyebrows and high forehead make him the spitting image of his dad, said he’d left at least three messages for Thomas in the past month in hopes of speaking to the absent pop before his birthday Feb. 6. “I rang because, you know, I’m turning 20,” Dones said. “I think I deserve two words from him — ‘hi’ and ‘goodbye,’ something like that.” (more)

Congrats!

It’s a boy, and a girl, for acting duo Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance. The couple are new parents of twins, a publicist for the pair announced Monday.

The babies were born Jan. 27 to a surrogate mother, Alex Dubee said. Bassett and Vance have been married for eight years. Bassett, 47, won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of singer Tina Turner in the 1993 biopic “What’s Love Got to Do with It.” Vance, 45, plays district attorney Ron Carver on the NBC show “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

rhonetts

I’ve been receiving emails asking where my Rhonetta Johnson post went and I have no idea. I think somebody at Blogger is trying to conspire against her since she is going to be bigger than J.Lo. I feel her pain. So here it goes once again because it is just that serious.

– There is no justification for this atrocity. If you are going to pay tribute to a fallen star at least have a brand new product. Don’t takeshoes from 97 and try to hook them up. (Thanks Butta)

– For once I would like to see Janet in some regular clothes. I’m not sure how old these pictures are but this is the first time that I have ever seen them. (Thanks Kaylah)

Are you happy now?

You gotta love Myspace if not for networking for the abundance of HAM-CAM’s. Sometimes I just surf from profile to profile laughing as girls (and some guys) pose in akward, overly sexual positions that even Paris Hilton can’t pull off. Bobbi K. doesn’t get down like that however but she does have a few flicks that lets us all know who had the dominate genes between Bobby and Whitney. “She’s a Brown, she got BODY!” Thanks BonQueshaLA for this lovely tip. But wait, there’s more!

Every time I see Vivica I think “damn did Kim get out early?” but then I realize its her. she doesn’t look like an ebony blow up doll in that picture which is always a good look. Ashanti also took a break from being the poor man’s Beyonce and attended.

sis

Wow, Sisqo is still alive? I guess so. It seems like this nigga disappeared into thin air after his second album came out. I personally thought his “croutching tiger, hidden negro” phase was amusing to say the least. I can’t wait until Vh1 does “I Love 2000” so all the of the panelist can sing the lyrics to ‘The Thong Song.’


+ Terrence Howard gets a new hairstyle, yes!

– A Pimp Named Slickback strikes again. If Donald Trump was Black would he wear his hair like this?

– There is only one man who can bring me out of my weekend seclusion and his name is Bobby Brown. If I knew I would have these lovely pictures waiting for me in my inbox, I would’ve checked it a long time ago. Even if his fingers are ashy, he still is number one.

– Muhammad Ali in his prime was hot, ‘Ye on the other hand looks like hot airbrushed mess.

– Get ‘touched’ by Lil’ Kim and check out a Lil’ Janet @ Cake and Ice Cream

Bre, you will forever be the love child of Rich and I. But you’re head is starting to look a little big for your body. Don’t go all Star Jones on us!

– It pains me to say this about Patti LaBelle but she looks like a big ass lobster in this outfit. Sebastian from ‘The Little Mermaid’ would be pissed!

Nelly (I just had to do it) had all the ladies in ATL going crazy at Lennox Mall where he held a fashion show for Apple Bottoms. Thank God for AB because I don’t know when the last time I seen a dude rocking a Vokal shirt in the trap. Click here to see pictures from the event.

While you are in the clicking mood, check out pictures from LeBron James and Kenya Moore’s birthday bash @ Sandra Rose. Everybody from Jamal Anderson to J-Nicks came out to show love. I hope Mama James didn’t get drunk! Speaking of J-Nicks . . .

Me: Why does he got a rubberband on two fingers? Does it represent the struggle?

Mr. Irreverent: People use rubberbands to remember. He probably forgets which sex he was.

Everytime I see Shar Jackson I can’t help but think how fucking worthless she is becoming. I know that sounds harsh but its the awful, pitiful truth. She is like that young teenage cousin who has five kids but is always out at the club. Anyway, Shar was recently spotted making out with not only Britney Spear’s ex-husband Jason Alexander but my favorite California thug Ray J. Aww wait a minute!

Superhead Back On The Prowl

Ex on the rebound: Looks like self-labeled Video Vixen Karrine Steffans has wasted no time finding a replacement for HBO host Bill Maher. It’s an old boyfriend, singer-actor Ray J. The other night at Mel’s Diner in L.A., Steffans, who split with Maher just before the Golden Globes, swapped spit with Ray J while Serena Williams and her entourage looked on in amazement.”It was certainly hot and heavy,” said a spy. Ray J’s technique got a rave review in Steffans’ recent memoir, “Confessions of a Video Vixen,” in which the author reveals: “When Ray and I made love, we would go for hours on end, each hour more satisfying than the last.” I’ll draw a veil over the rest.

Aaliyah + Jay-Z Pictures?

The internet is going b-a-n-a-n-a-s over pictures that recently surfaced of Jay-Z and Aaliyah playing it close. I’ve seen the pictures and heard of of the gossip along with them but I think its a little tacky to talk about someone who isn’t here to defend themselves. And that’s all I got to say about that like Forrest.
