Hot off the Press this week Jay-Zand Beyonce might be making a date with Oprah Mariah Carey shuts down Nick's boys night out, R. Kelly trial starts off with a bang, and Wendy Williams hubby gets caught with his pants down.
BeyHova Doing Oprah?
Oprah has reportedly booked newlyweds Jiggaman & Beyoncé for her show. Since Chicago's first lady is known for getting people to talk about the things they never talk about anywhere else, hopes are high that the couple might actually own up to being married. Even more share a few details about their nuptials or maybe spill the beans about the baby on the way. There are a few naysayers that feel Opie isn't likely to lift her rapper ban for Hov - but maybe she's hoping for another couch jumping episode.
Rebel Talking... Don't get your hopes up. If Jay & Beyonce hit Oprah best believe there is some product they are hawking. They damn sure ain't going there to show off their wedding bands.
Curfew for Cannon
Mariah's main squeeze recently discovered he may have to give up more freedom than expected if he wants to continue in wedded bliss. Nick Cannon was having a boys night with Diddy and Quincy Jones this weekend at the opening of the MGM Grand at Foxwoods when he got a call from his diva wifey telling him to bring his ass back to the crib, pronto!
"He was summoned home by her at 1 in the morning," a source said. "He didn't look happy about it."
After celebrating a low-key marriage in the Bahamas, Mimi is also reportedly planning a 2,000 guest event to follow suit in New York with 14 bridesmaids and a budget of $4 mil.
Rebel Talking... Hope Nick is prepared for the death of his free spirit. Whoever said love don't cost a thing never met the DIVA known as Mariah.
Jury selection is finally complete for R.Kelly's child pornography trial and the trial is underway. Based on the witnesses for the prosecutor's case, Kells could be singing the jailhouse blues very soon. Word is a former friend of the alleged victim in the case will be testifying about the identity of the girl on tape, as well as sharing stories about doubling up with her homegirl for threeways with the King of R&B.
That's not all. It's being reported that Kelly's brother Carey will be taking the stand against him. Years back, Carey stepped forward to say R. tried to bribe him 10K to admit to being the man in the video tape - so just imagine how damaging that testimony will be.
Rebel Talking... It's a damn shame the judge shut down the courtroom to the media - because this case is way dirtier than an episode of "Jerry Springer".
As if the sexual harassment suit wasn't enough, Wendy Williams husband just landed the Queen of All Media a gorilla-sized dose of humiliation. Its been alleged that the man who surfaced half naked in photographs on the web this week is indeed Wendy's beloved hubby Kevin Hunter. The flicks in question show Wendy's Mr. giving the business to a broad that is definitely not the Mrs.
Rebel Talking... A picture is worth a thousand words - but since this is the only thing Wendy keeps her big trap quiet about, these snapshots are definitely PRICELESS.
Diddy and friends may have to go back to the drawing board for the next season of MTV's "Making the Band". The next season of the show was slated to feature Bad Boys roster heading out on tour, however dates for several legs of the trip have already been cancelled thanks to poor attendance projections and slow moving ticket sales.
Rebel Talking... With Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Erykah Badu and Rihanna all currently on tour who the heck gives a damn about Danity Kane or Day 26. Matter fact, why pay for tix when I just saw them dancing on couches at NYC nightspot?
But while you were listening to Usher and Jay-Z name drop about their exes (Chilli, Christina Milian, Eisha Brightwell etc...) on "Best Thing," we were saving our pennies to buy tickets to Janet Jackson's first tour in 7 years and after hearing "Spotlight" we're eagerly awaiting Jennifer Hudson's appearance in Sex And The City: The Movie.
