Exclusive:Oprah’s Behind-The-Scene Interview With Bobbi Kristina!




FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER!


OPRAH’S REVEALING BEHIND-THE-SCENE MOMENTS DURING THE BOBBI KRISTINA INTERVIEW
Oprah Winfrey is telling some revealing behind the scenes information about her interview with Bobbi Kristina Brown. If you thought something was a little off when Oprah Winfrey interviewed Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kris, you were right! According to Oprah Winfrey, the interview “almost didn’t happen” because Bobbi Kris couldn’t be found. “I was on the plane leaving New York, the producer says we can’t find Bobbi Kristina. We don’t know if she’s going to do an interview. And I said, by the time I land I’m hoping you would have found her,” Oprah said.

As seen on Oprah’s Next Chapter, Bobbi Kristina did eventually turn up at the Houston family home in Atlanta. But, they stood only because Bobbi Kris was not open to sitting down with her. “When I saw her, the reason I didn’t sit down [with Bobbi Kristina] is because I was told that she didn’t really want to sit down,” Oprah shared. “So I just used that moment.” Oprah’s interview with Bobbi Kristina drew 3.5 million viewers, setting a record for the OWN network and the series Oprah’s Next Chapter.
In other Bobbi Kris news: Bobbi Kris and her aunt Pat Houston has been spotted coming and going from Tyler Perry’s Atlanta Studios. Unofficially, there is word that Bobbi Kris has landed a recurring role on Tyler Perry’s For Better Or Worse series on TBS. The comedy, which stars Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White, has recently been renewed for a second season. The show features the characters Angela and Marcus from Why Did I Get Married? movie franchise. Angela owns a beauty salon on the series and Bobbi Kris is said to be featured in a recurring role as the daughter of one of the stylists in the her shop.

Nene Leakes Lands A Tv Comedy Pilot
NeNe Leakes’ transformation from Real Housewife to bona fide television star is almost complete. It appears that NeNe has landed a coveted role in Glee creator Ryan Murphy’s new NBC comedy pilot, The New Normal. Ryan Murphy and NeNe began working together earlier this year after Ryan cast NeNe in Glee as Sue Sylvester’s rival, synchronized swimming coach Roz Washington. The new comedy is about a blended family of a gay couple and their surrogate. NeNe will play the recurring role of Rocky. While a role in a new TV series means NeNe will be spending plenty of time in California, the Georgia peach insists she won’t be relocating to L.A. permanently.


Magic Johnson group purchases LA Dodgers for $2 Billion
Magic Johnson and his ownership group (Guggenheim Baseball management group) have purchased the Los Angeles Dodgers for $2.15 billion. The largest price paid for a professional sports franchise in history. Also apart of the ownership group, Peter Guber-who is also one of the owners of the Golden State Warriors, Stan Kasten (former President of the Washington Nationals), Bobby Patton and Todd Boehly. Mark Walter of Guggenheim Partners is the controlling partner.
“I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles,” said the 52-year-old Johnson.
This group is a perfect mix of funding, experience and a great face for ownership. Magic’s deep ties to the city will certainly prove beneficial as the work begins to bring good feelings back after the last few tumtulous years with the McCourts.
The sale came five hours after Major League Baseball owners approved three finalists for the auction.
McCourt is somehow retaining or sharing ownership of the parking lots outside of Dodger stadium. (cash cow!)
I’m sure the elevated price tag has everything to do with the idea of creating a Dodgers network similar to the deal the Lakers made with Time Warner and like the Yankees have in New York.
Congratulations to Magic. I really wish more NBA Athletes would talk to Magic about how he made that transition into the business side.

Ewwwww, Nadya Suleman Strips Down for Closer Magazine
It’s no secret that she’s had money problems for years, and now Nadya Suleman has resorted to posing nude to pay the bills and find a new place to live.
According to a report, “Octomom” got naked for the folks over at the European magazine Closer in a new photo, which nabbed her a quick $10,000 paycheck.
Of her decision to bare all, Suleman explained, "I'm doing that (posing nude) because I need to feed my kids. I need to pay the bills. And I'm still very cognizant of the repercussions of my choices."
Back in 2009, Nadya was offered $1 million from Vivid Entertainment for a multi-film contract, but back then she apparently wasn’t as desperate.


Young Vito Indicted In Slim Dunkin Murder
The man suspected in the murder of Atlanta rapper Slim Dunkin was indicted by a grand jury this week. The “Atlanta Journal-Constitution” says rapper Young Vito, whose real name is Vinson Hardimon, was formally charged on Tuesday with felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony. Young Vito is accused of shooting Slim Dunkin, real name Mario Hamilton, on December 16th in an Atlanta recording studio. Young Vito was reportedly waiting to use the recording booth when he allegedly punched Slim Dunkin and a fight broke out. Slim Dunkin was shot in the chest during the fight, and was declared dead at a local hospital.
Young Vito fled the scene, but turned himself in to authorities ten days after the shooting. A trial date for his case has not yet been set.


Did you know this about George Zimmerman?
Details of George Zimmerman’s Employment. George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month, remains a mysterious figure as the controversy surrounding him continues to grow. In hiding since the shooting, little is publicly known about him. However, new details have emerged, shedding light on Zimmerman’s religious upbringing and his employment before the shooting.
Two sources have confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that Zimmerman is, or until recently was, an employee at the Maitland office of Digital Risk, LLC, a mortgage risk-management firm.
Information provided to the Sentinel by one source indicates that Zimmerman has not been to work since the shooting. His title was “forensic loan review analyst” — basically an underwriter.

A source also provided a more recent photo of Zimmerman than the 2005 mugshot that has been the primary image of him in the media. The new photo shows him smiling in a suit and tie.
Meanwhile, a report in The Washington Post revealed new details about Zimmerman’s upbringing in Manassas, Va. Neighbors told the Post that Zimmerman’s family was “very Catholic…very religious,” and his father, Robert Zimmerman, a retired military man who could be strict.
The elder Zimmerman previously described his son as an altar boy in an interview with the Sentinel. Records also show that George Zimmerman has a tattoo on his chest of a cross, with the name, “Christina.”

Dennis Rodman is “extremely sick,” “broke” per lawyer!!!!
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is “extremely sick,” “broke” and is in no position to pay hefty child and spousal support payments, according to court documents.
Rodman is behind in his payments and faces a court hearing Tuesday in Orange. He faces up to 20 days in jail for failure to pay spousal and child support, according to an attorney for his ex-wife.
As of March 1, Rodman, 51, owed $808,935 in back child support for the 9- and 10-year-old children that he had with his third wife, Michelle Rodman, said her attorney, Jack Kayajanian, in court documents.
Rodman also owed $51,441 through March 1 in back spousal support, Kayajanian alleged in court documents.

Michelle Rodman, identified in court papers as a Costa Mesa resident, is also requesting attorneys’ fees, according to the Daily Pilot.
Dennis Rodman’s attorney, Linnea Willis, said in court documents that the former Laker is barely capable of paying for his living expenses, let alone the $5,000 he has for one child from another relationship, and the $4,500 monthly payment for spousal and child support to Michelle Rodman.
The attorneys who have represented him to date have worked pro bono, Willis said.
“Respondent Dennis Rodman is broke and cannot afford any additional fees,” according to court documents filed on his behalf.

He is “extremely sick” and his marketability is diminishing with age and illness, according to court documents.
Rodman, who played on championship Chicago Bulls teams with Michael Jordan before coming to the Lakers, often led the NBA in rebounds. He has a long history with Newport Beach, whose police were called to his Seashore Drive home in West Newport 80 times during the eight years he lived there.
At the time his third wife filed for divorce, he listed his monthly expenses as more than $30,000, according to a 2004 article in the Los Angeles Times. Michelle Rodman listed her monthly expenses as $17,000.


Azealia Banks Stylish in GQ Photoshoot
Azealia Banks appears in GQ magazine's April Style Bible issue.
The FAB Upcoming artist, Azealia Banks, has really been making a name for herself lately. For her latest media appearance, the young rapper landed a spot in GQ magazine’s April Style Bible issue where she showed off her softer side. 


Check out a little bit from Banks’:
Azealia Banks on the attention she and her music have received: “I definitely have more money and shit, but that’s all virtual stuff. I’ve been making music for a while. 

And I could read about myself on the Internet for a while.”


…on meeting Kanye West and other celebrity fans: “It’s cool, but they’re just people.

The skies don’t part and glow orange.”
…on who she looks to for inspiration: “Everyone. …Azealia Banks.”


Allen Iverson No Longer Wants A Divorces, Because him and Wifey are still SMASHING IT UP!
NBA legend Allen Iverson no longer wants a divorce insisting he and his estranged wife have recently bumped, so her petition is null and void.
Iverson filed a motion to dismiss last week in his pending divorce case, claiming he and his wife Tawanna had temporarily reconciled from November 2011 to February 2012 and had “resumed their marital relationship, cohabiting, having sexual relations and holding themselves out as husband and wife.”
According to Iverson, that’s enough for a judge to throw out Tawanna’s divorce petition — on grounds the marriage isn’t “irretrievably broken” … as she had claimed.
It’s unclear if Iverson actually wants to get back together with Tawanna — the former NBA player’s legal move might simply be an attempt to delay paying support.
A judge has yet to rule.


Chaka Khan Psa In Support Of Trayvon Martin – “Super Life: Fear Kills, Love Heals”
Chaka Khan gathered several musicians and actors at Hollywood’s Henson recording studios for a remake of the song Super Life (from Chaka’s 2007 album, Funk This), for a public service announcement (PSA) in support of Trayvon Martin. Entitled Super Life: Fear Kills, Love Heals, the PSA project is a collaboration between Chaka, Kelly Price, Eric Benet, Kenny Lattimore, Veronika, Luke James, Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Sharon Leal, DeRay Davis, Keke Palmer, Garcelle Beauvois, Eva Pigford, Terry Crews, and many others. 

You can watch the PSA — here:

Fed up with news reports about the tragic Martin case, Chaka said she decided to “not just complain about it, but to do something about it.” Within 48 hours, she brought together several entertainment industry friends and Los Angeles community residents to make a statement for justice using a medium she knows well – a music video in the form of a PSA.
Several artists who were unable to attend the shoot sent videotapes, including Common, Macy Gray, Meshell Ndegeocello, Talib Kweli, and Jasmine Guy. Boris Kodjoe’s children, Angela Bassett’s children, Kenny Lattimore’s son, Chaka’s nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and many other youth participated in the taping. All wore identical white T-shirts that said “Super Life — Fear Kills, Love Heals.” It’s available at www.Chakakhan.com


Adrienne Bosh’s baby shower
Adrienne Bosh held her baby shower in Miami on Sunday while her husband, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder.


The theme for the afternoon, “welcoming the little gentleman.” Adrienne’s color scheme was turquoise and baby boy blue. The menu featured mini burgers, fries and strawberry milkshakes (The Bosh’s say was their typical meal of choice prior to their baby’s arrival) and several lavish cakes by Divine Delicacies. The room was flooded with bow ties, argyle printed d├ęcor, and mustaches, welcoming the arrival of Baby Bosh.

Included in the goody bags were homemade cookies and body scrubs made by Adrienne herself, as well as assorted Trapp candles, Mixed Chicks hair products and modern-chic aprons.As usual, Adrienne was dressed to the nines. Pregnancy looks good on her.
Some of the guests in attendance included LeBron James’ fiance, Savannah Brinson, Tracy Mourning, rapper Timbaland’s wife, Monique and more.

Kudos to her event planners. Adrienne’s events are always well put together.


Evelyn Lozada Goes Hot Pink For The KONTROL Magazine Cover
In the upcoming Decades issue of KONTROL magazine, "Basketball Wife" Evelyn Lozada is rocking the cover in a Dolce & Gabbana hot pink sequined dress. Continuing on her tour-o-magazine covers, Evelyn Lozada is rocking the new KONTROL magazine showing off her fat engagement ring.
Evelyn is readying her upcoming VH1 spin-off show kicking off this September, "Ev & Ocho," with her fiance Chad OchoCinco. The show will follow their wedding planning all the way up to saying their "I Dos." Hopefully they make it that far.

Here's highlights from Ev's cover story:
On her reality stardom "modesty":
Although Evelyn refuses to admit that she is a star, after modestly attempting to credit Tami Roman as the star of the show, she fesses up and acknowledges that she is the star amongst the women. “Alright, I’ll take it. I am.”

On how her friendship with Tami Roman differs from Jennifer Williams
“I think Tami is so honest and so real and she’s just herself and I love that about her. She’s very humble. And that’s the difference between her and Jennifer to me and that’s why we were able to move forward.”

On being over co-star Royce Reed
Jennifer, whom Lozada says too often “plays the victim,” was not the only one on Ev’s “do not” list. She revealed she severed ties with Royce and has no intentions to reconnect. No surprise there.

Oh Boyee!
