A sista may be off the air..but still on for ya entertainment juice!
They may not be besties but at least no charges will be filed. Breezy has decided not to press charges against Drake or Meek Mill in the now infamous bottle throwing brawl at club W.i.P in New York. A source says, "Chris and Drake don’t want to be in the same room as each other but neither of them want to get authorities involved,” the source says. “They aren’t going to press charges. The only people who will try to are the bystanders who want their fifteen minutes.” It's been confirmed that Drake was the one who wrote a nasty note to Chris about sleeping withRihanna — this is what started the brawl.
However....the consequences stemming from the whole Drake and Breezy "Bottles and Dem' Some" brawl still has more fall out. Spurs player Tony Parker is suing Club W.i.P. for $20 million for injuries he sustained during the bottle bashing incident. Parker claims the club should have never allowed both of Rihanna's exes in the establishment at the same time. In lawsuit documents filed in New York State Supreme court on Thursday, Parker calls W.i.P.’s security negligent for letting the brawl escalate to the point bottles began being thrown. Rihanna's 'cake' is causing some problems...
K. Michelle of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" sufferred abuse at the hands of Toya Wright's hubby, Memphitz, right? Though she doesn't name him per se, it is known in the industry he is the culprit. Well, talking to Eygpt Sherrod out the ATL, she pretty much name dropped him - after all, saying "you wish them both well" when asked about the two, implicates him. So Memphitz took to instagram to practically let K. Michelle have it saying he "made " her - he says he "installed" (not installed like a car stereo!) her bodacious donk, boobies, teeth and threw in a pic of Pinnochio - I guess to say she's lying?? IDK but I am SMH...
And yep! It seems the folks who were hot about 'Basketball Wives" aren’t done complaining. This time, they target "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta." Part of it says: "After we made a ruckus about Basketball Wives, sponsors began to pull ads. Well, it’s that time again, folks! While we should respect the perceptions and experiences of the men and women featured on “reality” television shows, networks are airing stories that could be very helpful for people to hear, but they’re telling these stories in EXTREMELY dangerous ways.We all know premium digital crack rock is ‘slanged’ in digital hoods other than VH1. We also know the problem is not just TV-it’s a big, mean, social monster that we’ve gotta shoot down one non-violent bullet at a time. Nevertheless, somebody’s gotta be the face of this lovely movement. And since VH1 has chosen to give us yet another beautifully-blinged jewel of commercial exploitation (Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta), they might as well be the face of change. By the way, shout out to all African Americans who received Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta as their Juneteenth gift! You won and lost at the same time!" Mona Scott, creator and Exceutive Producer has three words for haters: CHANGE THE CHANNEL!
While Keshia Knight Pulliam denies joining the RHOA, rumor has it that one of the newest cast members to be added to the Real Housewives of Atlanta is socialite Jamilah Rouse who owns an accounting firm and a high-end boutique!

We talked earlier this week about J. Lo's boy toy drop kickin a sista for Jeny from the block after she got GOT for cash, right? And last week there were rumors Casper Smart has his own boy toys. Well, Joshua Lee Ayers , a dancer at Hollywood nightclub Boulevard3, whose worked on Glee and with artists such as Fergie, LL Cool J, and Ludacris - has been blasting Casper on his Twitter account.“Check out Ur boy… And his low key homo ways,” Joshua wrote on a photo of Casper that he posted on his Twitter account in March.In the photo, Casper is shirtless, wearing shiny gold short shorts, a sparkly bejeweled belt, a scarf and a deer hunter hat while surrounded by other shirtless men in their underwear.On May 24, Joshua posted another photo of Casper showing off his cheekbones with the caption: “I know what I know, Not love, a lot of business and public relations.” So are you saying he is a male gigolo? No word just yet.
Kim K. may have finally found her Prince Charming. During the second part of her sit-down with Oprah Winfrey on OWN’s “Next Chapter,” the reality star couldn’t help but blush when asked if rapper Kanye West was “the new fairytale.”"It's very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things," Kardashian, 31, says in the interview, set to air this Sunday.Besides the fame and fortune from both of their careers, Kardashian says the two have a lot more in common than most would think."I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing,” she explains.West’s mother, Donda, died in 2007 from complications of plastic surgery, while Kardashian’s father, Robert, lost his battle to esophageal cancer in 2003.Though the two have known each other for nearly a decade, Kardashian said it was only a matter of time before romance found its way into their friendship. "I don't know why it took so long for us to get together," she says, "but I think I needed to go through all my experiences and some that he’s gone through. Kardashian is currently in the midst of a messy divorce with NBA player Kris Humphries, whom she dumped last fall after 72 days of marriage.
Speaking of which, the bitter divorce between them could get nastier because Kris's legal team is considering issuing a subpoena for the reality star’s ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush, to be deposed! We talked yesterday in "It's Like That" about Kim's legal team has formally subpoenaed Kris’ ex-flame, Myla Sinanaj, to dish about her relationship with the NBA star. Humphries accused the New York City hotel worker of attempting to extort him for millions of dollars because she allegedly threatened to go public with intimate details of their relationship. Myla’s attorney says there is absolutely no evidence that she ever asked Humphries for any money. And of course,Humphries’ attorneys will issue a subpoena for Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Kanye West, to be deposed. The gloves are now off because Kim is dragging Humphries ex-flame into the divorce, and for a very long time Kris’ lawyers wanted to go after the men in Kim’s life, but he didn’t want to put her personal life under scrutiny-however, the New Jersey Nets b-baller has given the green light to his lawyers. “There were reports late last year that Kim was considering getting back together with Reggie, and his lawyers would like to know what she said to him about the divorce, and her decision to file for divorce...Kris isn’t intimidated or threatened by Kim and her lawyers. He isn’t thrilled that Myla will be deposed, but he has nothing to hide. If Kim wants to go down this road, he has no choice but to do the same thing. Again, this ISN’T about money, it’s about getting the truth out, it’s all Kris has wanted since he filed his divorce response.”Meanwhile, Kim and Kris’ upcoming depositions won’t be filmed .Once the depositions take place a trial date will likely be scheduled for later this year. And Khloe denied that stupid allegation Kris made about mama Kris Jenner pimping and masterminding Kim Kardashian's sex tape in order to live out a "disgusting" fantasy. Khloe says, "That is just disgusting and disturbing, and probably HIS fantasy!". Lamar Odom and wife, Khloe Kardashian-Odom were spotted in New York attending the graduation of Lamar’s oldest daughter, Destiny (junior high, not high school.)
LeBron James is finally savoring it all since taking his talents to South Beach.”Happiest day of my life,” he said.James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Heat in a 121-106 rout of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night to win the NBA Finals in five games.

Check out photos of Savannah Brinson, Adrienne Bosh, and Gabrielle Union celebrating the 2012 NBA

And fresh off his awkward champagne bottle bath, Chris Bosh's baby mama Allison Mathis, 32, hates that anyone would believe she’s another baby mama who got pregnant by a baller for the child support. The two lived together for two years when he played for the Toronto Raptors, and she says Bosh had her get fertility treatment when getting pregnant proved harder than he thought. In her first interview since their daughter Trinity was born three years ago, Mathis says she doesn’t understand why Bosh is ignoring her pleas for help after she lost her job last month, placing her on the edge of foreclosure and public assistance.Worse? She says Bosh has spent upward of $2 million on lawyers to keep his child support payment at $2,600 a month. Whut!? But Allison believed the baby would equal marriage. Really, A? Did you not get the memo- a baby doesn't always mean a ring on it! That can backfire! Instead they broke up when she was six months pregnant, and she eventually moved to Orlando to be with her family. What probably really stung?Chris Bosh married Adrienne Williams last year, and the couple had their first child last month. Ouch. (Sidebar: makes you think Adrienne was around during their tenure, perhaps? Hmmm....) While we talked about her possibly needing food stamps, people wonder why Mathis was only getting $2600 month when in Florida someone with Bosh’s income could be paying up to $30k a month.The answer is simple their child support case was handle in Texas where Bosh has a residence.Ohhhhh.... Stay tuned but Bosh come on, bruh! She is the mother of Trinity!

Dennis Rodman's ex-wife Michelle has obtained a temporary restraining order against the former NBA star.The move stems from a May incident when Rodman, "drunkenly barged into his ex-wife's house... early in the morning, attacked her, then insisted on taking her and their son out for breakfast ... where he slammed 4-6 Jägermeister shots"! Really, D!? Michelle Rodman is further taking action today to make the restraining order permanent, per TMZ.The report goes on to say that, "At breakfast, Michelle said Dennis got even more wasted, ordering 4-6 shots of Jägermeister [in front of his son]," and that the former Detroit Piston also allegedly made comments about Michelle's boyfriend, yelling, "You're [bleeping] this white guy!"TMZ says that the hearings over the permanent restraining order continue today, and Rodman's expected to take the stand. He's also due in another LA courtroom today, TMZ reported, "to fight his $51,000-a-month child support payments." This cat...so special.
Although Amber Rose’s voice wasn’t that bad, when the girl starting saying things like she was in the studio getting her Beyonce on...naw, boo boo. In a recent interview she explained why we haven’t heard anything from her musically since she dropped her track in January. “I got engaged and I decided not to go through with an album because I just feel like it’s a bit too much. I’m 28 now and me and Wiz are in love and we’re thinking about having kids … to do shows and start a music career is just not on the cards for me.” Ok then.
