Porsha Williams is speaking out against the rumors that an African dictator’s son is her new man. Find out what she had to say about the rumors inside…

“RHOA” star Porsha Williams is addressing rumors that she’s dating 42-year-old Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea. He was also linked to rapper Eve back in 2005.

The “Flatline” singer tells E! News the African dictator’s son (above) is NOT her new man and that she’s never even met him before.

"The TMZ report is completely false! I do not know Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, nor have I ever dated him. When there is someone special in my life whom I wish to share I will let you all know. It has been rumored that I am dating many people."

"I am not focused on dating at the moment but rather the debut of my new single, "Flatline" available on Itunes on March 17th."

Now that she's cleared that up, news about Porsha and her ex-husband Kordell Stewart’s divorce settlement were revealed recently.  She got next to nothing out of her 2-year marriage from the former NFL quarterback: no alimony, no house, no NFL retirement money, no health insurance and NO cash. Not only that, she’s forced to pay off her own credit card balances! 

In other news, it appears Porsha has been getting over her divorce by flirting with former football player Chad Ochocinco on Twitter.  We’re just  glad to hear Porsha isn’t dating the possibly very dangerous Teodoro.

Master P’s wife claims she’s on welfare while N.O. Saints running back Darren Sproles’ wife is bashing the Saints organization.  Find out why Master P’s wife is on public assistance and what Darren Sproles’ wife had to say about her husband getting cut…

Master P’s estranged wife, Sonya Miller, says she’s on welfare while her husband is reportedly worth $200 million.  P and Sonya are still legally married but Sonya filed for divorce last year after nearly 24 years of matrimony.

TMZ reports Sonya moved in with her oldest son, Lil Romeo (seen above with two of his little brothers), and has been forced to get public assistance to get by. She claims Master P isn’t helping her at all financially and that she and her 4 minor children are impoverished.

Sonya’s resentful for the way her husband is handling their situation because she helped him build an empire including clothing manufacturing, sports management, toy manufacturing and production for film and TV projects. She even helped him start an adult phone chatline.

A judge fined the “No Limit” rapper $10K for not responding to the divorce petition but that seems to be the least of his worries.

And in other wife woes news…

New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles’ wife, Michel Sproles, went on Instagram to express how furious she was after she found out  her husband was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. Following a backlash, Michel deleted the profanity-laced rant, which included a few praises to God, but we have it for you!

She said:

If you follow football at all, you KNOW NOTHING is guaranteed. There is no such thing as loyalty in professional sports.

Rita Ora and Alicia Keys got their "Annie Hall" on as they strolled through NYC in blazers and fedoras.  See the candids inside....

 photo hatrita2.png

Alicia Keys stepped out in a blazer, fedora and black trench coat during a stroll through NYC today.  We love the way Alicia put a feminine touch on this otherwise masculine look. 

 photo haritta3.png

In recent press release, Alicia revealed that she's teamed up with Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell for a new song on the Spiderman 2 soundtrack called "It's On Again."  She said,

"I'm very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer. This is the next chapter in the 'Spider-Man' legacy and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story -- and most importantly -- the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.”

Chick knows how to make her menswear chic.

Also in NYC....

Singer Rita Ora was also spotted on the streets of Manhattan looking stylish in a pair of grey leggings and a window-paneled oversized blazer.  The oversized mens coat look is popular for the season:

The British singer also recently announced a new make-up line with cosmetics giant Rimmel.  "I love make-up. It exaggerates what's great about you and can totally pick up your whole face if you're having an off-day."

You feeling their looks?

CONFIRMED! LeBron's Wife Savannah James Almost 4 Months PREGNANT With Baby #3

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 03:08 PM PDT

The suspicions are true, according to our source...Savannah James is indeed expecting her and her Heat star husband LeBron's third child!

Just in time for their 6 month wedding anniversary, LeBron & Savannah James are expecting baby #3! 

An extremely reliable source in the couple's circle tells that Savannah is approximately 15 weeks along.  And most of her fellow Miami Heat WAGS (wives and girlfriends) have already been told.

We're told Savannah, who appeared at last month's NBA All Star GQ Magazine event (above) honoring her husband with a rounder belly, has missed a few events hosted by Heat wives due to all-day morning sickness.  But that's to be expected.

Just a few weeks ago, Savannah went back home to Akron to help out with her friend's charity event.  And Bump Watch went into overdrive:

The new Baby James will be joining big brothers LeBron James, Jr. and Bryce Maximus James.

Congrats to the couple!

SEPARATE...OR JUST SEPARATE WORK SCHEDULES? Halle Berry (Where's The Ring?) & Olivier Martinez REPORTEDLY Living Separately

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 02:29 PM PDT

 photo halle-berry-olivier-martinez.jpg

Hollywood sources say Halle Berry and husband Olivier Martinez are living separate lives...or maybe they're just busy?  More inside.....

 photo HalleBerryFamePhilanthropyPostOscarPartyVXZ77OuXaVXl-1.jpg

Gossips in Hollywood told the NY Daily News that the marriage of Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez is in trouble...big trouble. Despite both being in LA, (Halle is filming the CBS series, "Extant"; Olivier is filming ABC's "Revenge") the couple have drifted apart....some say.

We can only speculate about why the drift may have happened (work-related issues, postpartum stress) but you'll recall the couple married in 2012 and welcomed son Maceo in October 2013, shouldn't they still be "honeymooning"?  Or maybe Halle and Olivier are the type of couple who enjoy giving one another space? 

It's also worth nothing they haven't been seen together for months (but they DO have a newborn).   Halle was spotted around town, without her wedding ring, during the Oscars (above).  But......

The clip above (shot this week) shows Olivier is STILL wearing HIS wedding ring.   

SMH.....we hope these "reports" are misguided. We've been a part of Halle's romantic journey since the Wesley Snipes/Christopher Williams days. and had hoped that time it was for real.

"THE EDIT" Cover Girl Zoe Saldana On Her Secret Wedding, Fashion Choices And NOT Working Out!

Zoe Saldana covers the latest issue of Net-A-Porter's "The Edit."  See what Zoe said about her marriage and constantly challenging herself inside..

Dressed in a white Thakoon dress (above) and an Alexander McQueen dress on the cover, Rosemary's Baby star Zoe Saldana covers Net-A-Porter's The Edit's "Accessories Issue" where the latest accessories are paired with the season's hottest fashions. 

 photo productsBG.jpg


Inside the accompanying profile called "The Woman Within", Zoe is keeping it chic and sexy in the season's IT colors of neutrals and metallics.  And the newlywed opens up about her wedding (she wanted it to be discreet), staying in shape (she hasn't worked out in a year!) and reveals why she's so ambitious (she loves a challenge).  Here are the highlights:


On keeping her body fit:

“I’ve been an active person my whole life. The past year has been the only time in my life that I haven’t been to the gym. I’ve been lazy instead of training for something and pushing myself.” That inbuilt vigor, she says, is “not because I am trying to be skinny. I just like to know how much endurance I have. But this past year I’ve let myself go,” she continues, with pride rather than guilt. “I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese, pasta, rice, beans...”

On her under-the-radar wedding:

“I’m not a private person, but I am discreet, so it felt right.”

On fashion police:

“I don’t care what people think. If I did, I’d be at a different place in life, but I don’t. I can’t fake it. I follow my heart or my friends’ advice. Petra Flannery, my stylist is paramount when it comes to my fashion radar; she pushes me to evolve.”

On her career ambition:

"I have ADD, I’m a Gemini and I get bored quickly. So my next challenge is to direct, because I’m getting tired of just being a particle in the whole telling of the story. I want to be more. I want to be there from its conception.”

Sundy Carter & Brandi Maxiell Exchange Nasty Tweets + Draya & Orlando's Courtside Date Night

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 10:53 AM PDT

 photo sundybrandi_zpsb88d5701.jpg

Sundy Carter hit Twitter at 4AM the other morning virtually swinging on "BBW: LA" co-star Brandi Maxiell.  Apparently she wasn't feeling what had just gone down on this week's episode.  So Sundy tossed some fiery tweets Brandi's way about some pretty sensitive things.  Check it inside, plus Draya's courtside date night with Orlando (apparently those cheating accusations aren't stopping Draya's mission to get wifed)....


After this week's episode of "Basketball Wives: LA" ended with a fight at a charity event, you know--the reality show usual--Sundy Carter took to her Twitter account to blast Brandi.  Needless to say, the two newbies have not hit it off so well since the season started.  So Sundy is accusing Brandi, who is a cancer survivor, of MANY things.  And even alluded to her friends smashing Brandi's husband!


Brandi popped back with this:

Goodness gracious!

But elsewhere in L.A., Draya was busy convincing herself and the rest of the world all is just dandy with her and boyfriend Orlando Scandrick.  Yep, despite him getting caught having inappropriate communication with with Jackie Christie's daughter, Chantel.  And didn't she also say in her confessional that she's caught him slipping up SEVERAL times?

 photo e408e8eea8d011e3912e0a67fd6ef8ef_8_zpsa0e46927.jpg

She posted pics of him "taking her out on a date" to the Clippers game:

She brought along her friends like Chantal Jeffries.

And any thoughts on both Draya and Orlando belittling Chantal saying she's "brown skin, chubby and has a mole"?  Orlando saying "None of that is my type" and Draya responding by essentially calling herself "better" because she's the "model type"....was a bit much.  But not surprising.
