SPOTTED: Idris Elba's Estranged Wife+And Update On The Real Housewives Of ATL

On-screen hottie Idris Elba has been keeping his former wife and baby's mother under wraps throughout his career.  But now she's hitting the celeb scene extra hard as I hear she no longer wants to play silence keeper anymore.  Sources spotted Idris' ex-wife Kim Elba, an Atlanta makeup artist, schmoozing at Corks and Forks in the ATL with some top chefs.  And I hear she's also been visiting the set of a brand new adult talk show she may be a co-star of.   She may even make an appearance on the upcoming seaosn of Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" since "Housewife" co-star Sheree Whitfield (ex-wife of NFLer Bob Whitfield) is her new BFF: The two friends were spotted kicking it with ATL Falcon Ovie Mughelli on the set of a recent Obama campaign celeb support video.  Apparently Southern musical artists and celebs are making their own Yes We Can video.  I'm told the Atlanta socialites are always on the scene and are trying their damndest for celeb status without their husbands' help.  Yeah, good luck with that...   An update on the upcoming season of "Real Housewives of the ATL" when you read the rest...  

YBF Exclusive: Alicia Keys Shows Off Her Homewrecking Skills?!

And the Mashonda/Swizz Beatz/Alicia Keys love triangle saga continues. Very credible sources inside Alicia's camp (on the personal management side) have dished to TheYBF.com that Alicia Keys threw a party last night at the NY's Guggenheim Museum.  And it was far from a Welcome Back To The States party for herself.  She threw this party for Swizz Beatz's birthday!   Swizz brought his entire family (mom and co.) along to celebrate.  But it was supposed to be top secret that it was Alicia who actually threw this party for him. 

 

We reported a while back that the "divorce" talk from Mashonda and Swizz was just to help Mashonda save face. I'm told the couple was actually scheduled to start marriage counseling next week. 

Michelle Obama Does "Ellen"+Weezy Is Still A Mess

Michelle O. hit up "The Ellen Degeneres" show yesterday for the premiere of her new season:



The Jonas Brothers were on as well and she and Ellen did a skit about them and their crazed tweenybop fans. And chick came out brushing her shoulders off a la Barack:




She also talks about how her daughters Malia and Sasha think sleepovers and the Jonas Brothers are much more intriguing than Daddy running for President. Loves it.

You Need More People Dawn & Diddy

A couple weeks ago TheYBF.com broke the exclusive news that Diddy is secretly setting Dawn Richard up to go solo which has been causing a rift amongst the Danity Kane chicks.  And it took no time for Atlantic Records  to respond to my story (after Bad Boy passed the buck and didn't even want to give a statement about it) saying that Dawn isn't going solo and Diddy hasn't flown her anywhere with him.  Or really?  Well why in these pics and video, taken on

Vivica gets DENIED At Fashion Week!+Usher Preserves His Sexy+Janet & JD Hit The Club

YBF sources on the scene at NY Fashion Week today caught Ms. Vivica Fox outside the BCBG Max Azria show.  And even though black hollywood (well, most of us) knows and loves Aunt Viv, apparently the other folks in Hollywood don't even know who she is.  As folks were being let into the show past the velvet ropes underneath the Bryant Park tents, the gatekeeper stopped the line right as Vivica was about to sashay past the ropes and to the front row.  Vivica was not even confirmed to attend this show, and she was told she wasn't getting in because it was too full and clearly no one around the tents even knew who she was.  Denied! When she tried to explain that she is Ms. Vivica Fox, the gatekeeper looked at her like she was speaking Greek.  Meanwhile, one of the stylists from her new "Glam God" show got in with no prob just minutes earlier.  Now that's a slap in the face. The photogs on the scene caught Viv looking extra shocked and salty, but I'm told she didn't act a fool on their asses.  She was asked after the show had started if she wanted to come in and stand around the back, and she bitterly turned it down and watched in the tent lounge on closed circuit tv.  Damn.  Times are rough for 50's exes these days.       Um...is that you Ursh?  More pics of Usher showing us he got his Confessions sexy back when you read the rest...  

Jay-Z Answers Teairra Mari & Foxy+Floyd Gets Robbed For $7 Mill+R.Kelly's Got To Pay Ne-Yo $700k

  Jay-Z has responded to his former Roc princess Teairra Mari about her statement that he was wrong for not firing her personally.  Apparently she had to find out through other folks she was dropped from Def Jam, and she wanted hear that from Jay's mouth as she saw him like a father figure.  He has also responded to Foxy's claims that he was wrong for not calling/visiting her while she was in lock up since...in her head...they had a special bond.  He told Allhiphop.com:   As far as Foxy or Teairra Marì, these are people that I have given chances to. It’s understandable that they would be upset, but you got to look at it from my point of view as well.  I gave Teairra Marì the same shot I gave Rihanna. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.” You know that stuff is going to happen, eventually it’s going to happen.  What I’m happy about is, that no matter what people say, no one has ever said that I am dishonest or that I have taken one dime from them…I’ve never cheated anyone out of a dime. No one’s ever said that, right?” In other words, he really could give a damn what those two have to say.    Ne-Yo was awarded $700k in his lawsuit against R.Kelly.  Last year, the R pulled out the diva stops and dropped Ne-Yo from their nation wide tour with no warning.  Apparently R was jealous of Ne-Yo's stardum and he didn't want to share the flashing lights with him, but he let Keyshia Cole stay even though she was cuttin' up with her own diva antics.  Ne-Yo said he would sue the dude, especially since he's now lost respect for him as a man, and that he did.   More ish when you read the rest...
