Entertainment News from the Week of April 11th, 2008

Hey Loved Ones,

It’s your girl, Big Lez, coming at ya with the hottest news and views from Hollywood and beyond.

The rumors of Young Buck being booted from G-Unit have finally been confirmed. Live on the air in NYC, 50 Cent gave his official word that “Young Buck is no longer a member of G-Unit, however he did confirm that Young Buck will still be signed as a solo artist.

Over the last few months Young Buck has gone on record squealing that he has not received his royalty checks. Take notice that he has been absent from any recent G-Unit projects.

The question remains, can Young Buck have massive success as a solo artist? Can Lloyd Banks stand alone? Will these rappers be able to rise & shine, conquer the masses and attain platinum success?

Nevertheless, G Unit will be shooting a dual video for the upcoming singles, I Like The way She Do It” & “Rider Part 2.” G-Unit sophomore album, “Lock & Load” will be hitting the streets on June 24th. Whether Young Buck will be promoting this project or part of the upcoming videos, remains to be seen.

Well, bad boy, Bobby Brown has come clean about “Humping Around” during his marriage to Whitney Houston. This is only the tip of the iceberg as Bobby’s upcoming tell all titled, “The Truth, the Whole Truth & Nothing But the Truth” hits shelves next month. Check this excerpt out…

He writes: “I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney. Before then, I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana was my drug of choice. At one point in my life, I used drugs uncontrollably. I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine.

Bobby also goes on to write: “I am guilty of sleeping with other women,” says Brown. “Women are always throwing themselves at you. I’m only human, so I would make the mistake and bite the hook sometimes. I let the testosterone take over.”

Brown also describes his 14-year marriage as “doomed from the very beginning.” “I think we got married for all the wrong reasons,” he says in the book. “Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married … I believe her agenda was to clean up her image.”

Now you know Ms. “I’m Every Woman” is not gonna go down without a fight. Even Clive couldn’t stop Whitney’s people from making the following statement:

“Miss Houston is sad that Bobby feels he needs to say such things but she chooses to take the high road and will not speak badly about the father of her child even if it’s to set the record straight.”

Let’s see how long it will take before this Jersey diva takes off her hoop earrings and ties up her hair!

Ten years of what seemed from the outside looking in as wedded bliss, has turned into actress du jour Jasmine Guy filing for divorce from husband Terrance Duckett, citing irreconcilable differences. The two have a beautiful 9-year-old daughter together.

In the court papers filed, Jasmine asks to be awarded her wedding ring, a Rolex watch, her leased 2006 Lexus GX470, two Mac computers, four DVD players, three televisions, numerous items of furniture, three Persian rugs, five plastic storage drawers, a baby Grand piano, a toaster, a juicer, two microwaves and much more.

This is California, folks, so you know community property is the rule. It will be determined at a later date whether joint custody will be awarded, child support & alimony. However, with respect to their daughter, the couple asks to respect their privacy during this difficult time.

The former “A Different World” & “Harlem Nights” star has recently appeared on the small screen on Showtime’s “Dead Like Me.”

Toni Braxton was admitted to St. Rose Dominican Hospital after a recent show at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino. Presently, Ms. Thing is in good condition after experiencing a series of chest pains. However, a spokeswoman from the American Heart Association says that Toni suffers from pericarditis, which is an inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart.

It seems that Toni became aware of this condition after the birth of her second son. As of now, some shows have been canceled and upcoming performances will be confirmed on a daily basis.

It seems that Rikers Island has turned into the new nuptials hot spot for their newest jail bird Remy Ma. She’ll be damned if she let’s an orange jumpsuit and metal bars stop her and fiance Papoose from jumping the broom. While Remy Ma awaits her sentencing for shooting a “friend” she believed jacked her for $3,000.00, she’ll also be picking out her wedding dress & penning her vows.

Word is, Remy Ma & Papoose are very much in love and had all intentions of becoming husband and wife. The question remains, who will be wearing the ball & chain? This is gonna make for great new albums and off the chain videos.

See ya next week for more hot Hollywood happenings!!!
