Dancer Gives Details of Ordeal
I wasn't aware of this incident until earlier this evening while checking my email (I told you I hate to do it) but I feel like I had to do a post about it. I reach a lot of you guys and I feel like you should know about this if you don't already. Usually I try to keep things light around here. But sometimes we have to stop laughing and begin to discuss events going on other than Vivica Fox's hard breast.
The woman who says she was raped last week by three members of the Duke University lacrosse team thought she would be dancing for five men at a bachelor party, she said Friday. But when she arrived that night, she found herself surrounded by more than 40.
Just moments after she and another exotic dancer started to perform, she said, men in the house started barking racial slurs. The two women, both black, stopped dancing.
"We started to cry," she said. "We were so scared."
Forty-six members of the men's lacrosse team submitted DNA samples Thursday in the unusual case. As of late Friday, there had been no arrests. Duke officials briefed university staff Friday on the allegations, and authorities vowed to crack the team's wall of solidarity. "We're asking someone from the lacrosse team to step forward," Durham police Cpl. David Addison said. "We will be relentless in finding out who committed this crime." (continue)
Naomi Campbell Arrested After Argument Update
The supermodel, twice before accused of striking employees with telephones, was arrested Thursday at her New York City home for the alleged assault of a housekeeper whom Campbell said she'd fired hours earlier.
Campbell, 35, was taken into custody at 11:30 a.m. (ET), and booked on second-degree assault, New York City Police spokesman Lieutenant Gene White said. The professional poser could be arraigned in court as soon as the afternoon.
The unidentified housekeeper, a 41-year-old woman, was treated at Lenox Hill Hospital for lacerations to the head, White said. At 8:30 a.m., according to police, the woman was struck in the back of the head "by an object" at Campbell's residence. The woman left the home, and went to the hospital for treatment. The hospital alerted police to the purported assault.
When asked if the offending "object" was a telephone, White said he didn't know. An Associated Press report cited police as saying a telephone had been used in the alleged attack. (continue at Yahoo)

T.I. & Tiny: Together Again
Now that's love, black love. I guess.
Mark Twain once said: "The Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated," well, the same can be said for Hip Hop's royal couple Tameka "Tiny" Cottle and Tip "T.I." Harris. Sorry to break the news ladies, but they were together last night at Vision for T.I.'s album release party. It was like they never left. T.I. and Tiny showed up together as if the news of their breakup hadn't reached them yet. I wish I could say I told you so, but I can't. I believed the hype too. Some may chalk this up as just another publicity stunt to sell records. But we should applaud T.I. and Tiny for keeping their family together in spite of all the rumors, innuendo and groupies behind every hotel door. Their relationship has stood the test of time. And that's a beautiful thing! (Sandra Rose) Busta Rhymes Makes A Scene After Being Tapped On The Shoulder By Gay Man Busta Rhymes caused a scene in Miami Beach early Sunday when he went off on a gay man who tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention. According to the New York Post, Rhymes and his bodyguards were at the 11th Street Diner in Miami Beach early Sunday morning when the incident occurred. Located next door to popular gay club Twist, the restaurant was "packed with transvestites, gay men and drag queens, which obviously made Busta a little edgy," eyewitness Thomas Barker wrote in an e-mail to the paper. "This became evident when a young gay guy came up behind Busta and tapped him on the shoulder to congratulate the rapper on his recent comeback," Barker wrote. "Before the guy could even mutter a word, Busta turned around and repeatedly screamed, 'Why the f*** you touchin' me, man? Get the f*** away from me.'" (Continue at Eurweb)

America's Next Top Model Episode Five
Gina finally stood up to Jade (and got her ass sent back to the house), Nnenna got touchy feely with a male model on the set, and Furonda finally looked fierce. Check out more pictures from the model's portfolio at Oh No They Didn't or log on to UPN.com. I have an opportunity to take part in a live online press conference every week with the girl who gets the boot but I usually don't because I'm usually busy. I think I'm going to select someone for that soon though. You never know it may be you.
So Who Had The Freshest Month Ever? You Already Know
With the end of March quickly approaching its become quite evident who's had the best month ever, Three Six Mafia. I may not be the biggest fan of their music nor do I understand what the fuck goes through their minds at times but even I can't hate on happiness. It sorta makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. Mushy shit aside these boys have been doing their thing since they snatched up that shiny statue named Oscar.
I am proud to be an American because of shit like this. If a man name Crunchy Black can
coon dance around while his friends rap about pimp life then by God I know I can go on to do great things with my life. As Buffy the Body would say, dey my "expiration".
Lemme stop bullshitting before somebody sends me a virus. I do think they are having the time of their lives though. Here's the latest scoop:
Oscar-winning rappers Three 6 Mafia say they are producing and recording tracks with Paris Hilton."We ran into her at a William Morris Agency party and she said she liked our song 'Stay Fly' and asked could we work with her," said Jordan "Juicy J" Houston, a member of the Memphis hip-hop group. Houston said the group was in a Los Angeles recording studio Tuesday with the hotel heiress and reality TV star. "We let her listen to a dance track and she really liked it and plans to record it tonight," Houston told The Commercial Appeal newspaper by phone Tuesday. He said that since the group won the Oscar for best original song for "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp" from the film "Hustle & Flow," they have been swamped with all sort of requests. The trio will be back in Memphis to receive a key to the city Saturday, deemed Three 6 Mafia Day. (MSN) Thanks RastaLove :)

Say It Ain't So!
Pop diva Whitney Houston is reportedly hooked on crack and spiralling hopelessly out of control, according to an exclusive online report by Victoria Newton in The Sun. Pictures obtained by Britain's biggest-selling newspaper are believed to show Houston, 42 and mother to 13-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, looking "haggard, with dark circles under her eyes and a deranged look on her face".Shots of the singer's bathroom also reveal signs of heavy drug use, with assorted drug paraphernalia "including a crack-smoking pipe, rolling papers, cocaine-caked spoons and cigarette ends are strewn across the surface tops", the report said. The bathroom photograph was allegedly taken by Whitney's sister-in-law, Tina Brown, at the home Whitney Houston shares with her singer husband Bobby Brown in Atlanta, Georgia.
Ms Brown told The Sun: "The truth needs to come out. Whitney won't stay off the drugs. It's every single day. It's so ugly. Everyone is so scared she is going to overdose." According to Ms Brown, Houston "regularly disappears for days and weeks at a time". Other times, Houston spends days locked in her bedroom, piled high with rubbish. Tina, 42, told The Sun: "She'll point to the floor and say, 'See that demon. I'm telling you somebody's messing with Bobby'. She always thinks it's something to do with Bobby. But it's her, hitting herself ... She breaks everything - mirrors, phones, cabinets, appliances." (continue reading) Thanks Bryant!

The mag names his alleged new girlfriend as model Denise Vasi, 23. "They enjoy doing yoga together," says a source. (Is that what the kids are calling it these days?) Reps aren't commenting, but an insider tells me the end is indeed near. (New York Daily News) Thanks Stacey! Here's a picture of Denise, very pretty girl. That's fucked up if thats true though.
