Splitsville Lane

Ummm....

LisaRaye has given an "exclusive" interview to Essence.com to clear her name. She says she's not a gold digger like everybody's accusing her of, and she's never claimed to be "hood" since her father was a multi millionaire who owned hotels. motels, and all kinds of things on the South side of Chicago:
ESSENCE.COM: Many balked at your whirlwind romance and marriage and accused you of being an opportunist. How do you feel about that assessment of your character? LISARAYE: First of all, I'm a fan of love and partnership. I would say this to my critics: If a man comes to you there obviously has to be a connection. I had a man who's smart and powerful and who I fell in love with. He's embracing my family. Add the fact that I have an opportunity to bring tourism to his country and be involved in something historical. Who in the hell would say no? But what scared me was the idea of being First Lady? ESSENCE.COM: What frightened you about assuming that role? LISARAYE: I knew nothing about being a First Lady or politics. I'm thinking, What am I going to have to change? I'm on a successful sitcom, my daughter is in high school and I'm the breadwinner. What am I going to do? Then Prince Charming comes my way and I'm saying, "God, did You send this man to me to take me away like Calgon".

Girl stop. The best quote out of this whole interview:
“I like the finer things in life so I don’t make any apologies for the men I choose to date,”
So basically you're saying you ARE a gold digger? Just asking. I mean, if you're not going to make apologies for it, then why deny the "accusations" of your "opportunistic ways"? Again, just asking. And honestly, my attention span isn't even allowing me to care any further than me typing this ish. Here's Kanye and his crew at Paris Fashion week: Ummm. More on this when you read the rest...

Beyonce is on full on "Pick Me" mode for Inauguration.  While Aretha and Rihanna have been tapped to sing at the swearing in ceremony and a ball, respectively, Beyonce hasn't officially signed on to perform at any Inauguration festivities  just yet.  But she did remake the American Classic "Proud To Be An American".  Check it: [audio:bproudtobeanamerican.mp3]
Yeah... Rumors are still running rampant abut an impending Marc and J.Lo split.  Now the latest rumor is that the couple of 4+ years will announce their divorce after they perform a surprise "farewell" duet at one of Marc's upcoming concerts.  This ish is nuts and very far fetched.  Even for these publicity sluts.  But I'm just the messenger. UPDATE: J.Lo's rep has put out an official statement saying reports of the couple splitting are untrue. Take it or leave it.

Legal Updates: William Balfour & Hudson Family Tragedy Case+Plaxico Burress+Morgan Freeman

William Balfour, Jennifer Hudson's ex brother-in-law who is accused of killing three members of Jennifer's family, did so supposedly because he was angry Julia Hudson was dating another man. Balfour had previously warned Julia he would harm her family if she dated the other man, prosecutors claimed in court yesterday. And on the day of the killings he allegedly again warned his estranged wife about dating the other man, after seeing a birthday gift from him. The details emerged as Balfour appeared in court yesterday in Cook County, Illinois. At the hearing, Judge Raymond Myles denied him bail.  His mother Michelle Davis-Balfour and sister (we think) Dawn Davis were both there. Essence.com reports that Jennifer is doing extremely well for the circumstances and close family friends say she has become the rock of the family.  She cooked Thanksgiving dinner for everybody and got everyone through her late mother's birthday which would have been last month.  Keep your head up Jenny. Updates on Morgan Freeman and Plaxico Burress when you read the rest...
