Keyshia Cole seems to be having a rough year already--her marriage appears to be still on the rocks and she owes a serious amount in back taxes. But she seemed happy enough while talking about wanting to adopt a child.
Check out what Ms. Cole had to say about it, plus the only place she keeps it "overly sexy"....
Since she's adopted herself, Keyshia Cole told Bethenny during a recent taping of the talk show that she wants to do the same, even though she already has a biological son, Daniel, Jr.
On wanting to adopt a child:
On not being "overly sexy" as an artist:
On her love-hate relationship with reality tv:
Tune in Monday, February 10th for the full sit down. We doubt she'll really address her husband though...

Danity Kane singer Dawn Richard seems....different? Decide if she did or didn't have plastic surgery inside.
From Danity Kane to Dirty Money to solo stardom and back to Danity Kane, we've seen Dawn Richard go a few through professional changes. Now that DK are back on tour, we've noticed that there may have been a few physical changes along the way too.
It could be the lighting, it could by the makeup/styling, or it could be good old-fashioned surgery. Whatever it is, we don't think this is the same Dawn from the block. Folks on social media and beyond have their theories...what are yours?
Check out a few "before" pics.....
And some folks are saying this new Dawn, below, got a nip/tuck before reuniting with Danity Kane. Maybe some jawline work and/or a nose job:
Or maybe just a good makeover...
DID SHE OR DIDN'T SHE?

A few weeks ago, it was reported that former NFLer (who is reportedly severely down on his luck when it comes to finances) Terrell Owens secretly married a chick named Rachel Snider. And now, just two weeks later, she says they're divorcing.
The ish was odd from jump, and now we're scratching our weaves even more. Deets inside...
Rachel, who is the only one of the two even speaking about their marriage, reportedly married T.O. in a secret ceremony on January 23rd in Newhall, CA. We have yet to see a marriage certificate, but TMZ reported the "wedding" took place.
Rachel, who is a postal worker, even posted a pic of a wedding ring on Twitter:
And now, TMZ reports she's filing for divorce. Apparently she left T.O., is moving out of Cali and she believes Terrell only married her for money. Oh? She went even further claiming he used her to secure a $2 million loan.
"I felt in love ... and now I feel betrayed and heartbroken," Snider told the site.
But oddly, she tweeted just hours ago about how she's very married and looking forward to Valentine's Day:
T.O. has yet to even mention this marriage to anyone anywhere, but Rachel is doing enough talking for the both of them. She's been tweeting back at critics who say she's just some obsessed fan. She's been attempting to prove they've been "friends" for years...even though we're not sure how exactly.
And there are no pics of the two together. She does seem to superimpose herself into pics with him though.
Is it possible she is simply an obsessed fan (she tweeted about T.O. OFTEN before this marriage news surfaced like she was a stan) who is concocting this whole marriage and divorce bit for attention?
We reached out to Terrell's people and heard nothing back. So, is it also possible T.O. took advantage of her fandom to do exactly what she's accusing him of?
We're not sure, but something in the milk ain't clean...

Jeezy and Trey Songz have teamed up for a new record. Listen to the track inside and see pics of Rick Ross' new mansion and get the deets on Janet Jackson's NY apartment.
R&B crooner Trey Songz and rapper Jeezy teamed up for a new record, "Ordinary." The recently leaked track pays homage to their fancy cars, shoes, woman and UN-ordinary life. As usual.
Listen to "Ordinary" here:
In real estate news.....
Rapper Rick Ross has purchased the home of former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield. The 235-acre estate boasts 109 rooms, a bowling alley, a 135-seat movie theater, an Olympic-size pool, a horse stable and a baseball field ad includes a separate 4,000-square-foot home on the property. A big man needs somewhere to live his even bigger life, we guess.
Check out pics of the fabulous propoerty:
Rick plans to live on the property and also use it for his In a Big Way charity. (Which likely means the charity purchased this for kids to visit maybe a couple days a year and Ricky's just living in it). A rep told MTV news, "The Boss' vision is to bring inner-city youngsters to the property and let them utilize all of the luxurious amenities like the Olympic-sized swimming pool, baseball field and horse stable, in an effort to take them out of their element and bring a positive influence to their lives."
In other real state news...
Janet Jackson has rented a 2,093-square-foot apartment at Trump International Hotel & Tower overlooking Central Park. The place boasts three and a half bathrooms, a master suite complete with a walk-in closet and marble bath and will cost $35,000 per month.
We're not mad. That's small change for

Lauryn Hill taped an appearance on the "Late Show" yesterday. See the pics inside and find out about Zane's tax woes......
The ever-stylish Lauryn Hill was spotted leaving a taping of "Late Show With David Letterman" yesterday, wearing a floor-lenth plaid dress, leather belt and a funky fedora. And we kinda love it. She's looking effortlessly pretty as usual.
Lauryn recently announced that she's headline the 21'st Anniversary of the 9 Mile Music Festival Saturday on February 15th at the Miami-Dade County Youth Fairgrounds along with Stephen Marley, Damian Jr. Marley "AKA Gong" and Julian Marley. The festival has collected and donated almost three million cans of food to hunger projects internationally and this year, cans wills benefit Curley's House, a food bank in Miami.
It's great to see the former recluse embracing fans and hitting the stage again. On Wednesday, she performed during the Amnesty International's Bringing Human Rights Home concert at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
In other entertainment news...
Bestselling Zane, the fame writer who wrote about hot sex LONG before "Fifty Shades Of Grey" hit the bestsellers list, has a few tax woes. While Zane (aka Kristina Laferne Roberts) has a way of putting pen to paper for her novels, she's consistently failed to apply pen to paper while signing tax documents and cutting checks to the feds.
The Washington Post reports that she reportedly owes $340,000 to the state of Maryland and around $540,000 to the feds. She owns a million dollar home she bought years ago, but it's now also at risk.
Zane's sold tons of books over the last several years, and she's also receiving a check (we assume) for the books she's turned into shows on Cinemax like "Zane's the Jumpoff" and "Sex Chronicles".
A spokeswoman for the state comptroller’s office told the Washington Post that they've been after Zane since 2003 and “Publishing her name on the Web is one of the last steps we take in a very long process.”
We'll let you know if she cuts the feds a check....
