Flavor Flav

The renowed rapper Flavor Flav and his fiancée Liz will appear on ABC's hit show "Celebrity Wife Swap". The episode featuring the duo will air on Tuesday, January 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET). Here's a brief summary of what you will see on January 10th:
Legendary hype man Flavor Flav, his fiancée of nine years, Liz, and sons Gibran (15) and Karma (4), live in a gated community in Las Vegas, but that’s where the “normal” part of their lives ends. When he’s not touring with Public Enemy, Flav regularly spends his time with his friends at the bowling alley. The easygoing Liz usually sits at home alone, tranquilly crocheting and reading self-help books while her mother looks after the baby -- or she goes out gambling, her favorite pastime. Dee, who is perhaps best known as the lead singer of ‘80s sensation Twisted Sister, and his wife of 22 years, Suzette, met in high school. They are very much the hands-on parents to Jess (29), Shane (22), Cody (21) and Cheyenne (14). When the quiet-loving Liz travels to Long Island to swap lives with Suzette, she almost loses her mind when Cheyenne’s post-hardcore band rehearses in the house. She is also taken aback when she realizes how little Dee and the kids help with the household in comparison with Suzette’s daily routine, which includes all of the cooking, cleaning and even styling her sons’ Mohawks every day. But that’s little to compare with the gravity defying and nerve-wracking experience Suzette is having with Flav back in Vegas. Suzette, who calls raising her children her “career,” becomes irritated when she sees Flav constantly on the phone and hanging out at the bowling alley with his friends. Flav keeps leaving Suzette with the kids alone or calling his sister-in-law to care for the baby. He often goes out for extended periods of time without informing Suzette of his whereabouts. As a result, he misses the scheduled plans she’s made for him and the family. When it comes time for Suzette to institute her own set of house rules, she discovers that Flav is not one to easily bide by someone else’s rules.

Singer: Sinead O'Connor

After 18 days of marriage, singer Sinead O'Connor announced that she's divorcing her new husband in a personal note posted on her official website:
"Dear friends, I had for reasons u will all understand, wished to keep this private but have been told today it is to be leaked in the next few days despite my best efforts. So I must now leak it myself so as the record is straight." "Within 3 hours of the ceremony being over the marriage was kyboshed by the behaviour of certain people in my husband's life. And also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don't drink.” "My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage. It became apparent to me that if he were to stay with me he would be losing too much to bear. A woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free." "He is a wonderful man. I love him very much. I'm sorry I'm not a more regular woman. I truly believe though it is painful to admit, we made a mistake rushing into getting married, for altruistic reasons, and weren't aware or prepared for the consequences on my husband's life and the lives of those close to him. He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage. I think he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap."

Rapper 50 Cent banned from twitter recently for posting subliminal tweets about Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats. According to CelebrityFix:
Rapper 50 Cent was temporarily booted off Twitter yesterday after he posted a pornographic picture and video. Fans following the hip-hop star speculated that his account had been hacked but he later admitted he had been blocked when he tweeted, "Twitpic just suspended my account damn. They got 30mns to get it back or ima go haywire." The networking site intervened after the 35-year-old hip-hop star, real name Curtis Jackson, uploaded an image of a bikini clad woman with a jumbo burger wedged between her buttocks. He titled the pic, "Y'all like my Kim K burger?' Having earlier complained that he was hungry, the hip-hopper added the caption, "I know what I wanna eat now, a big juicy burger!" The post appeared to be an unflattering reference to reality TV stunner Kim Kardashian's famously large toosh. 50 Cent then followed up by posting a video showing an unidentified blonde woman simulating a sex act with a large sex toy, along with the caption, "Now see why I be mad b--ches be faking Ima find girl in this clip and Ima marry this b--ch and be happy like swiss." 'Swiss' is probably a reference to fellow rapper Swizz Beatz who recently married R&B beauty Alicia Keys.

Beyonce Knowles?

Is it so? Say it ain't so...
[BlindGossip] It’s coming down to the wire, folks! Just a few weeks to go. There’s one problem, though. She was looking too thin to be convincing. Thankfully, she found a solution that doesn’t include eating a single bowl of ice cream. It’s called Prednisone. Taking excessive amounts of corticosteroids over time can result in some serious effects, including hypertension and cataracts. Another side effect is gaining weight, especially in the face and neck and abdomen. She knew this because it happened to her before. Last time it was accidental and was upsetting for her. Now, though, it’s purposeful, and is a solution to her problem. She started taking Prednisone a couple of months ago, so she should be plumping up pretty soon. Fat face and neck coming right up! She not worried, though, because she’s been told that the weight will drop quickly once she tapers down below 10 mg a day. Followed, of course, by claims of how hard she worked to take off the weight.

Beyonce Knowles

Several websites are reporting that Beyonce is faking her pregnancy and the blogsite "BlindGossip" is dropping some hintful gossip that maybe directly related to the singer, her husband and their surrogate:
She was brought in from outside the United States. She only speaks Spanish (or Portuguese?), and has a child who is approximately Kindergarten age. She is fairly attractive, looks like she is in her late twenties, and has thick, dark brown hair and medium-colored skin. You probably wouldn’t notice her if she was walking down the street. However, it doesn’t really matter what she looks like, as she is simply the Surrogate for a baby that is a genetic combination of the soon-to-be Mom and Dad. The Surrogate is currently living on the Lower West Side of Manhattan with her first child in a very nice apartment. She is not married, and does not really know anyone in New York, but she does want to stay here once the birth is over. The apartment is being paid for by the Couple. The Surrogate is well-cared for by a full-time staff person and there is always a doctor or nurse on call. She looks like she is approximately eight months pregnant, and is clearly much bigger than the Mom, who is simply playing pregnant.

Beyonce Knowles

A very pregnant Beyonce Knowles was spotted shopping in West Hollywood yesterday. The Dailymail reports that the singer was purchasing some sexy undergarments -- let's hope the undergarments were apart of their maternity line.


The following was submitted by an anonymous reader:
I was watching X factor the other day and have this theory and strange feeling that Rachel Crow is Beyonce's daughter and Etta James is her grandmother. Rachel has an uncanny resemblance to Etta James. The singing talent has been passed down for 3 generations (usually musical talent is passed down). It is documented and admitted by her adoptive parents that Rachel Crow was a crack baby and her parentage is unknown. Maybe this story was planted and made up to make a believable story of how Rachel surfaced. Clearly, Rachel is being groomed and shows signs of being MK ULTRA like Beyonce & Etta. That breakdown was also a way to catapult her into the Hollywood stratosphere. Also, during the the breakdown, she showed signs of multiple personality & bipolar disorder. I found it very strange that she went from 1 to 10 & screaming to her adoptive mother that winning was promised to her which is also an indication that she is being groomed. Beyonce is a known sex slave for rich white execs & has had many abortions. I am sure she had a baby during her nearly 40 years on this planet & this child was taken from her & passed off as a crack baby & now is being groomed & called the next Beyonce/Etta James. There is no mistake how producers had Rachel Crow sing Etta James "I'd Rather go blind" & Beyonce's "If I were a boy". Just like it was no mistake casting Beyonce in Cadillac Records as Etta James. I believe Beyonce & Rachel have White ancestry & Etta James father is a White man- whose parentage is unknown too. The looks are uncanny between the three & like Etta James who was a sex slave too, she had a child and it was taken away from her and groomed to be Beyonce. Matthew Knowles adopted her or she was given to him & Tina & they raised her has their own. Etta James was high most of her life so I am sure she does not recall giving birth & as much brainwashing going on- it makes sense. Rachel Crow is Beyonce's daughter by a white older man. The TRUTH will come out!

R. Kelly

According to the Washington Post website, " A real estate listing shows the 22,000-square-foot mansion in Olympia Fields with a $1.595 million price tag. It’s a short sale, meaning Kelly owes more on the house than it’s worth....Kelly custom-built the 16-room gated mansion in 1997. The house includes eight full bathrooms, four fireplaces, an indoor pool, sauna and theater room. There’s also a private lake. Over the summer the house was the subject of a $2.9 million foreclosure lawsuit because Kelly reportedly failed to make monthly mortgage payments for more than a year..."
