"It" girl and red carpet darling Lupita Nyong'o turned heads in an amazing emerald strapless gown with a long flowing train from Christian Dior's Fall 2013 Couture collection. She punctuated the look with a metallic gold belt and accessorized with Ana Khouri gold ‘Ildeman’ cuffs and gold-and-pearl ‘Laura’ earrings. Her heels, not seen here, were Christian Louboutin.

She was a vision, as usual.

Although Steve McQueen did not win the award for Best Director, his film, "12 Years A Slave" won Best Film.  During his acceptance speech, THR reports Steve said, "21 million people in slavery now as we sit here. I just hope there will not be another 120 years of ambivalence that allows another filmmaker to make a film like this.”  He attended the dinner and awards show with long time girlfrien (they also have two kids) Bianca Stigter.

Oprah Winfrey (who was also a presenter) arrived at the dinner party in a crimson gown with a satin bow from Stella McCartney.

STILL IN TROUBLE? T.I. & Tiny Competing For Who's Having The Most Fun?! ALL-STAR VS. THE STRIP CLUB

Posted: 17 Feb 2014 08:21 AM PST

 photo titinycompetition_zpsce530359.jpg

Last week, we sensed some trouble in Trouble Man T.I. & Tiny's paradise.  And it seems to be continuing to play out via social media.  Check out how the twosome appeared to be competing to have the most fun over the weekend as they spent time apart....

 photo c595c1e6977a11e3957d12d83f881799_8_zps7b329af7.jpg

After T.I. hosted a party in New Orleans Saturday night with Miguel for the 2014 NBA All-Star weekend, he snapped a pic showing off his flossy gear.  And seemed to send a subtle shot to his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris saying:


#KickinMajorFlav #hustlegangovererrrrthang #ImHavinWaaaaayMoreFunThanU #Hahahahahaha (JokerVoice)

Tiny wasn't at her husband's side during the All-Star weekend, like she usually is, so it raised a few eyebrows amongst their fans and followers. 

Instead, Tiny spent her weekend back in Atlanta at her fave place--the strip club:

 photo 04ab5dfc975611e3a93712acd571ca7d_8_zps663d2115.jpg

She posted a pic yesterday of all her girls saying, "Turnt in the day time..& we ain't even at AllStar..but u wouldn't een no it!! #Folliesgoing".

We hear Follies is a hole-in-the-wall ratchet type of strip club (probably Tiny's favorite).  But she was determined to show off just how much fun she could have without her husband:

She said, "Damn we club hopping today! & we keep getting deeper & deeper!! #Atlnights."

These two.  It's been a while since we've actually seen them together.  Hope they work out whatever is going on....

A celeb-studded 2014 NBA All-Star game went down last night in New Orleans.  And we've got pics and video galore for you to catch up on what you missed...or what you just may want to see again.


Peep it inside....

Pharrell slayed his performance during the introduction of Team East & Team West last night at the Smoothie King Center (formerly the New Orleans Arena) in the 504.  Team East finally broke their 3-year losing streak and beat the West 163-155. 

But first, Skateboard P rocked the stage and brought out his slew of celebrity friends you see above.  He went through a medley of his hits with Diddy, Busta, Nelly and Snoop.  And yes, that Vivienne Westwood hat made a return, this time in red, while he performed "Happy".  Check out his entire performance below in case you missed it:

Pharrell commented, "No words for how grateful I am that these legends joined me on stage tonight."  His NERD homie Chad Hugo also hit the stage for a surprise appearance.

Diddy had his little sis Janelle Monae (above, posing it up outside the arena together) on the bill for the halftime show.  She rocked out with Earth, Wind & Fire, New Orleans' own Trombone Shorty and Texas guy Gary Clarke, Jr.  Check out their electric performance below:


And around the game:

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Rosie Perez Reveals Bitter Fly Girl Feud With J.Lo! + Meagan Good LANDS Leading Role In "Babylon Fields"

Posted: 17 Feb 2014 06:20 AM PST

 photo handbook-3d1.png

Rosie Perez opens up about her long-standing feud with Jennifer Lopez in her new memoir.  Read an except inside and get the deets on Meagan Good's new television show. 

In her new memoir, “Handbook for an Unpredictable Life” (due Feb. 25th), actress and former "In Living Color" choreographer Rosie Perez revealed that she and former "Fly Girl" Jennifer Lopez haven't seen eye-to-eye since their "In Living Color" days. In an except published by the NY Post, Rosie reveals that she started out as a champion and supporter of J Lo (even convincing Keenan Ivory Wayans to hire her), but their relationship soured because of her diva ways.

“All of the girls were coming into my office complaining how she was manipulating wardrobe, makeup, and me, all to her advantage,”

Rosie says Jennifer even snapped on her one day,

“You pick on me, me and only me, every f–king day! Every f–king day! I work my ass off, deliver and you keep pushing me aside, treating me like sh-t! I know I’m good! I’m better than any of these girls, and you know it,” Lopez roared.

After J.Lo left the show, Rosie "thought" they were cool until Jenny From The Block blasted her in a magazine.

“I was blindsided,” writes Perez. “I’d thought we were cool. I called her up. She wouldn’t pick up. Frustrated, I left her an irate message on her answering machine. Instead of calling me back and hashing it out like friends do, she went on a major talk show and reiterated my lashing,”

Unfortunately, the two bumped into each other, months later, and it wasn't pretty. 

“Jennifer came over to me, smiling, saying hello as if nothing had happened. I should’ve let it go, played it off, too. Instead, I killed her with my biting tongue,”

Also, Rosie revealed that Jennifer was asked to lose 20lbs before she was hired and some "In Living Color" castmates thought she was "corny."


In new gigs......

Although NBC cancelled Meagan Good's show Deception, the peacock network still believes in her star power and has cast her in a leading role for a new series called "Babylon Fields."  According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series goes down like this:

The Gerald Cuesta series "...centers on the dead rising again in Babylon, N.Y., where lives are regained, old wounds are reopened and families are restored -- for better or worse. The newly regenerated bodies are healing faster and growing stronger, prompting discussion that this might be the next step in human evolution." sounds like Meagan will be taking a dive into science fiction with this new gig.   Her character is Janine Beltran, "a beautiful local doctor." The series pilot will be written by Gerald Cuesta and directed by Michael Cuesta for 20th Century Fox Television.

In other news, Meagan and her husband DeVon Franklin will be featured speakers at the Mount Zion Baptist Church "2014 Relationship Summit" in Nashville, TN on Feb. 22nd.  Looks like Meagan will be putting on her church lady hat for that one....

Misa Hylton's Home Is Getting FORECLOSED + Khia Goes IN On K.Michelle's Booty Lumps

Posted: 16 Feb 2014 10:01 AM PST

Oh no!  Diddy's first child's mother, Misa Hylton, is reportedly facing home foreclosure.  And Khia is popping off about K.Michelle's admitted Brazilian Butt Lift booty.  Check it inside...

Back in 2003, Diddy purchased a 3-Bedroom, 3,215 sqft Westchester home for Misa and their first born Justin Combs.  He took out a $712,000 mortgage, and as of 2010, he still owed $266,518. 

The bank claims they stopped receiving payments in 2010, and now they want ALL of it...or they're putting that house up for auction. 

Did Diddy get tired of funding Misa's lifestyle, even before Justin moved out and went to college to play football at UCLA?

Khia posted this video below saying, "#This What Y'all Want?? KMichelle Booty?? Photo Shop Implants #ChildBooBye"
