Shaquille O’Neal on LinkedIn: Oh Shaq… you’re too much. The basketball star has apparently made himself a LInkedIn profile…you know, to stay connected…and it is super hilarious. Shaq didn’t reveal a whole lot of info, but included that, “I’m working on a lot of different ventures. My best asset is that I am proven to lead teams to championships. I mean multiple championships.” OMG.
This whole thing makes me laugh.. and I am DYING to know his motivation behind creating the profile. Boredom? Seeking professional connection?
Elmo Puppeteer Cleared of Sexual Abuse Charges: Sunny days ahead? Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash has been cleared of THREE sexual abuse charges. Clash, who has voiced Elmo for three decades, was accused of sexually abusing multiple men over 10 years ago. Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” as a result, issuing a statement that said, “I have loved every day of my 28 years working for this exceptional organization, he said in a statement at the time. “Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer.”
The U.S. Court of Appeals decided to throw the cases out this month, agreeing with a New York judge’s decision last July. Sheldon Stephens, Clash’s first accuser, continues to press forward with legal action. Stephens, now 25, originally claimed that Clash sexually abused him at the age of 16. He later changed his story, saying the relationship was consensual.
I’m sorry…but doesn’t that still make it very WRONG?? What is the problem with people?? Good grief. Stephen’s was recently sentenced to prison for stealing prison checks, bringing his character into question. If you ask me, he and Clash both sound like pretty shady characters. I don’t know if you’ve seen Clash’s documentary, “Being Elmo” on Netflix, but it’s actually pretty interesting. Just a shame that this information had to come out, making me question a lot of things about him. Genius or not, a relationship with a teenager is not okay.

Duchess Camilla’s Brother Mark Dead After Fall on NYC Sidewalk: Such sudden and tragic news. It has been confirmed that Duchess Camilla’s brother Mark Shand has died following a fall on an New York City Sidewalk.
"It is with deep sadness that we have to confirm that The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother, Mark Shand, has today passed away in New York," Clarence House said in a statement. "Mr. Shand died in hospital as a result of a serious head injury which he sustained during a fall last night. The Duchess, The Prince of Wales and all her family members are utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss. Mark Shand was a man of extraordinary vitality, a tireless campaigner and conservationist whose incredible work through The Elephant Family and beyond remained his focus right up until his death."
Apparently Shand was lighting a cigarette when he slipped and hit his head on a sidewalk, right outside the nightclub The Diamond Horsehoe. This is just heartbreaking…and such a freak accident.
Justin Bieber Held at LAX, Not Allowed Entry to US: Back to Canada? A source has confirmed that Justin Bieber is currently being held at LAX after a recent trip to Asia. The “Boyfriend” singer’s bodyguards are currently waiting outside, but Justin has yet to emerge. No details on why he is being detained, but this comes on the heels of a petition requesting that the Canadian be deported. The White House failed to comment on the petition, issuing a statement on April 18th that said, “Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one. We’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows.”
Bieber’s has had his share of troubles lately, coming under fire from fans for a photo he shared in Japan, and currently facing assault charges in an old case. On again off again girlfriend Selena Gomez has been subpoenaed in said case, and rumor has it that she knows quite a bit about Bieber’s temper. Hopefully we will hear more very soon.
Beyoncé & Jay Z Moving To London? Jay-Z and Beyoncé have reportedly bought a £5.5 million mansion in West London. “Both Jay and Beyoncé are Anglophiles and have been toying with the idea of getting a pad for a couple of years now,” a source told British newspaper The Mirror.
“They are coming to England this year and touring before the year is out.” Apparently Jay-Z and Beyoncé visit London so often, they believed it would be a good idea to have a property there. Although their prior stays in England’s capital city have been excellent, the couple, who are parents to two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, supposedly wanted a residence of their own to call home.
“On previous trips, they have stayed in five star hotels and, on one occasion, a rented mansion,” the insider explained. They are understood to have exchanged on the pad around four weeks ago. And billionaires Queen B, 32, and Jay, 44, will quickly recoup the cost of their plush new crib as they’re set to gross over £2million per show for their 20-date US tour. “While money isn’t an issue, it makes sense for them to have a more permanent base and get to know one particular area.”

Torrei Hart admits being hurt by Kevin Hart during divorce: Torrei Hart thinks back fondly on her collegiate days when she first met ex-husband Kevin Hart, and though the two are working on their post-marriage relationship, she admits she’s been hurt by the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” comedian. “It’s so painful. I just feel like there’s ways to do things, too,” Torrei told Sister 2 Sister Publisher Jamie Foster Brown about when she and Kevin divorced. “When we first split up, I took a lot of time to just heal. I feel like he hasn’t even really healed, because he went from one relationship right into another relationship.”
Kevin and Torrei are each in new relationships now, but Torrei isn’t quite as convinced as Kevin that his new woman is “his rib” as the comedian has previously described her. “It’s easy to be somebody’s rib when you’re a millionaire,” she said. “That’s just me being as honest as I can. Me, for instance: You’re working at City Sports and I’m taking you to your shows, you’re driving my car, you’re crashing my car several times, and I’m still there for you, supporting you, went out and got a job for the phone company and still making sure I got your back so you can pursue your dreams…That’s what ribs do!”
Though she’s not quite sure Kevin has found his next wife in girlfriend Eniko Parrish, she is focusing on her own romance now and adjusting to her new relationship with Kevin. “We go through our periods, but I would say that we’re getting closer. We’re working through stuff,” she said.
T.I.’s alleged mistress revealed?
One Los Angeles model is being pegged as the woman coming between T.I. and his wife Tiny. Who is the girl behind the gossip? There’s more fuel for rumors that T.I. has been cheating on his devoted wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris. Just weeks after the Grand Hustle boss bought a new place closer to his studio and moved in by himself, there are whispers that he may have a mistress.StraightFromTheA.com informants claimed earlier this month that T.I. wasn’t exactly spending his nights alone at the new residence. Now BallerAlert.com reports that Jasmine Jaye has become the lady of the house at T.I.’s other home. A source close to T.I.’s camp claims that the “Whatever You Like” rapper has been keeping company with Jasmine, who modeled for Draya Michele’s Fine A*s Girls clothing line, for more than a year.
Jasmine lives in Los Angeles, but the gossip is that Jasmine has become a known part of T.I.’s entourage whenever she is in town. She keeps her relationship status fairly veiled on social media, but Jasmine often posts pictures of expensive gifts on her Instagram account. This leads some to believe that rumors of her romance with T.I. are true. However, she is often seen on Instagram posting pictures with a male stylist that has the Instagram handle scoot3rsofly. They have several pictures together on both of their accounts, and he captioned the picture below, “Something’s are just ment to be! @jasmine_jaye.” The nature of their relationship is unclear.
Neither T.I. nor Tiny have spoken out about rumors of his alleged relationship with Jasmine at this time. The pair do seem very committed to raising their kids on their hit VH1 reality show, “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.”
Juan Pablo Proposes A Career Change for Nikki Ferrell: Wrong kind of proposal, Juan Pablo. The Bachelor star has disappointed fans since his season began last year, and this recent news is no exception. US Weekly is reporting that he has asked his girlfriend, Bachelor winner Nikki Ferrell, to quit her job as a pediatric nurse. You heard me — no ring, no wedding bells, no kind of solid commitment. But yes….please give up your career, Nikki. Eeeeees okay.
Apparently Juan Pablo wants Ferrell to turn her five minutes of fame into a NEW career, moving with him to Miami to pursue a career as a model or television personality. The 26 year old is supposedly considering moving from Missouri to be with him. This is all just so crazy to me. Give up her career to be with someone who won’t propose? Has he even said, “I love you?” Galavis has a bit of a reputation for charming girls into giving him what he wants. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Ferrell turns her notice in very soon.
The whole thing is kind of surprising considering that her passion for her job was one thing that attracted him to her throughout the show. He even shared a photo of her at work on his Instagram feed a couple of weeks ago, captioning it, “Mi Catira @nikki_ferrell LOVES her JOB and that’s ONE of the things I LOVE about her… #NikkiTheNurse.”
I think we can all agree that #NikkiTheModel just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Do you think Ferrell should quit her job to be with Juan Pablo?

What’s Going on with Selena Gomez?: Something is going on with Selena Gomez. First, there’s her on again/off again relationship with Biebs. Then, she and bestie Taylor Swift broke up and she started hanging out with the Jenners. She attended rehab for a couple of weeks and left not even halfway into her program. She fired her parents with no warning at all and left CAA for WME. Now, she’s deleted all but 15 people she was following on Instagram, including T-Swifty, Biebs, the Jenners, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens.
The “Come and Get It” singer is still active on her Instagram, even though she’s not following anyone. Moody, cryptic photos are capturing attention right and left. She posted the above selfie, quoting Amy Winehouse “Back to Black” lyrics, and sporting dark eyeliner and glassy eyes. Selena also posted an Instagram shot of a review of Mary J. Blige’s 2007 album Growing Pains with the lyrics to the “Work in Progress (Growing Pains).
Whatever she’s going through, it has to be hard being in the public eye through it all. Hopefully she finds a good support system and bounces back!
Former “Basketball Wives” Star Is Homeless: Being a villain on reality television obviously isn’t as lucrative for everybody as it was for Omarosa. Former basketball player and reality star Eric Williams recently revealed he is in fact homeless. The shocking news comes after Williams was summoned to appear in a Denver, Colorado family court to settle a child support dispute with the mother of his thirteen-year-old son. Williams wrote a letter to the court explaining why he couldn’t appear at the hearing that was scheduled for earlier this month.
Eric Williams, who owes more than $24,000 in back child support, wrote a letter to the court saying that a “court-ordered citation for me to appear was not delivered to my home address as I have no home.” In the letter, the former basketball player went on to reveal that he has no money for airfare or to retain a lawyer to resolve this matter. Eric Williams was once married to former “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams. Their nasty divorce played out on the show and Eric came off looking like the bad guy. Now, Williams says he’s a volunteer at an unidentified non-profit organization and is in the rebuilding stages of his life.
