WHITNEY AND JERMAINE JACKSON HAD AN AFFAIR
Rumours abound that Whitney Houston and Jermaine Jackson (a married man at the time) had a secret affair in the 80’s when he was her producer, which might explain his utter devastation at Whitney’s passing last month. He was so grief stricken he couldn’t bring himself to attend her New Jersey funeral. Supposedly, Whitney’s No1 hit Saving All My Love For You echoed the story of her secret affair with Jermaine. The blockbuster ballad is about a woman having a romance with a married man and waiting for him to be hers. Whitney even hired a Jermaine lookalike for the song’s video. Michael Jackson was among the few people who knew about the pair’s year-long passionate relationship — but did not approve of it. Whitney and Jermaine never lost touch after the affair ended. LaToya Jackson has recently admitted that Whitney did indeed have an illicit affair with her brother Jermaine.

IS PAULA DEEN A RACIST??
We’re not even a quarter of the way through 2012 and PAULA DEEN’S public image is about to take yet another massive hit. Paula and her company are being sued by a woman who alleges sexual harassment, physical abuse and discrimination. And she also claims she’s heard Paula use the N-WORD. Lisa Jackson spent five years working in the Paula Deen empire. And she claims for most of that time, Paula’s brother EARL “BUBBA” HIERS sexually harassed and mistreated her. She even claims he spit on her once. She also accuses Paula of some pretty RACIST behavior. Back in 2007, Jackson was put in charge of catering and staff for Bubba’s wedding. She was told it was going to be a, quote, “true southern plantation-style wedding.”When she asked what the servers should wear, Paula allegedly told her, quote, “Well what I would really like is a bunch of little [N-WORDS] to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties. “You know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.”
WILLOW GOES GREEN
Little WILLOW SMITH made headlines whipping her hair back and forth, then she made MORE headlines when she shaved it off. And now she’s got us talking about her again . . . because she has dyed what’s left of it GREEN. I like that she is being allowed to express herself and not buying into the beauty myth that beauty is only in the form of long flowing hair… but I can’t lie the green is making me side eye this child just a lil bit..
NEW MUSIC FROM AALIYAH!
Aaliyah may be gone, but she certainly has not been forgotten. It’s been 11 years since her untimely death, but now there’s news that a posthumous album is in the works featuring unreleased material from the late songbird. According to producer Jeffrey “J. Dub” Walker, who previously worked on Aaliyah’s final album, a song he produced for her will appear on the project. He tweeted “Just got great news today; the smash unreleased song called ‘Steady Ground’ I produced for #Aaliyah is gonna be on her upcoming album,” he then quickly deleted the tweet from his timeline. No explanation on why J. Dub took down his tweet, but it looks like he may have let the cat out of the bag early, so to speak. As for the album we don’t know what to expect, but this is good news for her adoring fans. Hopefully, this album will feature some great songs that will add to Aaliyah’s enduring musical legacy.
TILA TEQUILA JUST RELEASED FROM HOSPITAL
Reality Star and model TILA TEQUILA was just released from the hospital yesterday, after spending a week laid up due to a brain aneurysm that almost KILLED her. According to RadarOnline.com, Tila suffered the aneurysm in the middle of the night. Not thinking rationally, she took TWO BOTTLES of, quote, “heavy prescription drugs.” A source says, quote, “Tila threw up all over her bed after overdosing and felt like she was dying. She was screaming for help, and in desperation, broke her bedroom window and attempted to jump out. “Finally a friend came over after getting a strange text from her and found her convulsing on the bed. He called an ambulance and she was taken to the hospital.”
The source says Tila is still having speech problems, and might have suffered permanent brain damage. She also dropped from 100 pounds to 78 pounds. She’s going to continue seeking treatment on an outpatient basis.
