days ago are still struggling to clear a conflict of origin
issue in relation to Nigeria.
In an interview on Wednesday Oct 31st, the American
tennis superstar stated categorically that they're not
Nigerians though they love Nigeria and her citizens.
Popularly called Williams sisters, they declared
they're purely Americans with no Nigerian root as
widely believed in some African countries today.
Serena Williams, who joined her elder sister, Venus
Williams to train some selected kids the rudiments of
tennis at the Ikoyi Club in Lagos Wednesday evening,
said their parents may be black with slight traces from
Africa, but she insisted that they are from the United
States of America, USA.
"We have heard from many people asking
whether we hail from the Badagry area of Lagos
in Nigeria. But we are using this opportunity to
clear the air once and for all. We are proud
Americans, we are not from Nigeria but we love
the people of this country no doubt, " Serena said.
On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian and bestie Jonathan Cheban went to the Prestige Imports showroom in Miami to get the scoop on some rare breeds.
And looks like the bootiful mermaid wants a brand new, very rare Pagani Huayra!
That's $2M a car. Dayum!
Why so expensive? Well..
When we first heard Lindsay Lohan's Twitter was hacked our first thought was, "thank GAWD she didn't actually write that cray cray stuff about Hurricane Sandy!" But it turns out, THAT was her.
Hopefully she took her followers' advice and changed her password and reported the fraudulent post.
When we see a Tweet from Lindsay that seems totally insane, we want to be 100 percent sure it's actually her that's writing it!
We're hearing Rih and Chris Brown's mother, Joyce Hawkins had a lovely dinner over the weekend at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills -- sans Breezy.
Could this be a sign of trouble? Or just a simple girls night?preference in everyone's favorite game of Rihanna Vs Karrueche! Ha
But later, on Tuesday, Chris was seen leaving the Supperclub solo. Hmm...
Could this kind of behavior be one of the reasons she wanted to light up so hard??
She's done everything to smooth these rough patches out, and we're not seeing the same amount on his end. We know we're not with them behind closed doors, but the protective side of us just wants RiRi showered with appreciation.
We can't help it!!
Somebody's getting rather cozy!
We previously told you that Selena Gomez has been back on set for the Wizards Of Waverly Place reunion flick and it looks like she has been spending some QT with one co-star in particular -- Gregg Sulkin!
Gregg will be returning as Mason in the hour-long special, The Wizards Return: Alex Versus Alex, which is set to premiere in 2013!
Check out the SUPER cute pic of Selenita and Gregg (above)!!!
Aww! Reunited at last! We just hope Justin does not get jealous!
We definitely would not mind that eye candy on set! Ha!
In December issue of Cosmo, Swifty opened up about her past relationships... though, she wouldn't get TOO specific!
Not only did Taylor state that she cannot tolerate cheating, but she revealed one thing she has learned from her previous lovers -- when to back away!
Taylor vaguely stated:referring to??? We hope her summer fling with Conor Kennedy did not evoke those feelings!
Though, we are glad Mz. Swift has grown and has come to realize when a relationship could potentially turn out to be dangerous!
(Sorry, Kate Middleton -- you and your Prince just got BEAT!)
Just two weeks after popping out a perfect baby child, singer / life coach Adele was seen carrying her baby around foggy London Town!
The seven time Grammy winner and her son -- whose name is still a secret -- strolled along with Daddy, Simon Konecki and their doggie Louie.
Adele looks GREAT for someone that just had their first child!
This pic is the first of MANY mother/son SIGHTings we expect to see in the future. The busy new mom has promised to NOT get a nanny, and be a VERY hands-on mom.
We're sure it won't be long until we get a glimpse at little what's-his-name's face!
Christina Aguilera wasn't wearing a costume today, but she was still very Halloweenie!
The singer wore some skulduggerous skull pants to pick up her son Max from his Halloween parade at school.
Well, they sure as hell aren't as seksi as the costume she wore on Saturday, but we are glad she is still in the spirit!
--Twilight author Stephenie Meyer on how we're all gonna bawl like a baby at the end of Breaking Dawn: Part II.
Kanye West was picked up at a Miami airport on Wednesday by Kim Kardashian, but had to make it through the paparazzi first.
This ain't his first time, now. Sounds simple enough!
But then he saw someone familiar: the woman whose camera he previously smacked!
Yeezy was feeling bad about it, so he gave her a big olâ€™ hug! And he was even smiling!
Donâ€™t worry. Kim was right there watching the whole thing to make sure Ye didnâ€™t get handsy with the lady. Lolz!
Good for you Kanye! It takes a big man to apologize!
While visiting the Brigantine Beach Community Center and speaking to refugees of the storm, they both praised each other's response to the disaster.
When Obama told the crowd, I want to let you know that your governor is working overtime," Christie added,
"Some say that God sent down his windy wrath to warn us about homosexuality and whatever other ignorant agenda they want to push, but maybe the Almighty just wanted us to shut up and get along."
So many tragic tales coming from the Mid-Atlantic seaboard this week!!
Hurricane Sandy sunk the HMS Bounty off the coast of North Carolina on Monday, killing at least one and stranding fourteen, and leaving one treading water somewhere in the Ocean.
While the U.S. Coast Guard found everyone else, Captain Robin Walbridge has been missing for well over 24 hours!
Authorities are optimistic about finding him, however, as he's wearing the proper survival gear which includes a bright orange vest.
Our sincerest thoughts extend to everyone affected by this brutal and horrific storm.
Hopefully Captain Walbridge will be safely returned to his friends and family soon!
Who were all those characters? Where were the gay allegories?? Why did hot hunk of a man James Marsden die for no reason?!
But X-Men: First Class was actually pretty cool! The characters were identifiable, the allegories was back, and we had hottie James McAvoy to fill the hole in our, um, hearts.
So now it looks like Bryan wants back on the ride! He has officially confirmed he will be the director for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but he'll still be working closely with Matthew Vaughn, the man who righted the ship in the First place.
Days Of Future Past is a story about time travel and a dark future world where the X-Men are being hunted to extinction by giant robots.
Kind of like The Terminator, only with mutants. And hotter men.
It says NO SMOKING and even has a convenient illustration to break through the language barrier.
The Gangnam Style singer didn't seem to notice (or care) though and was photographed puffing on a cigarette in a smoke-free zone outside a building in Toronto, Canada.
Although we don't approve, it looks like he fought the law...and won. Brava!
