In a Hollywood-style cliffhanger, the much-anticipated testimony of one of the prosecution’s key witnesses was postponed today. The witness, a mother from Atlanta, was expected to testify that she had a threesome with R. Kelly and the alleged victim and identify both as the individuals in the sex tape. But Judge Gaughan cut proceedings short after learning of a surprise witness for the defense. Apparently, the witness contacted the defense just this morning. Expected to discredit the testimony of the Atlanta mom, the witness will arrive some time tonight in Chicago for what will surely be a long night of interviews and preparation with R. Kelly’s attorneys. Whatever information surfaces, expect the prosecution to try to bar new evidence from being admitted. If the prosecution fails, the defense may have an opportunity to break its low-scoring slump.
Looks like Hulk Hogan‘s son Nick Bollea is having a tough time in jail. According to a recently leaked phone conversation between Bollea and his parents, Nick is not too happy with his new digs. Given that the 17-year-old is a minor, Bollea is kept apart from the general prison population, and the isolation has started to wear on him. After a tearful conversation with his mother, who states she thinks the sentencing too harsh, Nick gets on the phone with his father, and the two move on to plotting Nick’s next career move, a reality television show with the working title of “New Nick”, rather than the 500 hours of community service Bollea will be performing following his 8-month jail stint.

Looking like a ridiculous 35-year old slutty ball girl to throw the first pitch at a baseball game in Japan: Tasteless.
If you live in NYC and desire to see Sex and the City this Friday, good luck finding a seat between 2PM and 12AM. Fandango will repeatedly taunt you with the above message. We suggest venturing to New Jersey or Connecticut…or wait a week if you can. To ease the ants in your pants, see pics below from last night’s premiere at Radio City Music Hall.
Can’t get enough SATC? Check out movie clips, production stills, and more premiere shots.
In the video above, catch a flashback on the Celebreality pasts of Rock of Love‘s Brandi C., Flavor of Love‘s Hoopz, and I Love New York 2‘s The Entertainer. Then, watch as the clip flashes forward, and the three of them talk about what they’ll do with the $250,000 should they win I Love Money, the VH1 all-stars competition that debuts July 6. We’ll be rolling a new one of these out everyday, so if your favorite I Love Money cast member has yet to show up, have no fear: they will.
Ray J is desperate for his own music career, but is always overshadowed by his big sis Brandy, his sex tape partner Kim Kardashian, and his menopausal sugar mama, Whitney Houston. But finally the young star has done something to garner attention all by himself! Too bad it involves some seriously sketchy drugs. The singer was allegedly kicked out of his DC hotel this weekend, after Hyatt security received complaints about partying in his room. Spies report back that Ray J was allegedly in possession of weed and something called boat, which might be PCP? The cops didn’t press charges, but the hotel did boot Ray J after he tried to bribe the staff to let him stay. His own security hand to come haul him off! How diva-like! If only he had a career that matched his attitude.
Here’s a list of the most absurd moments of episode 6 of A Shot at Love 2 With Tila Tequila.
1. KRISTY’S GAY TEST
“I think that me and Tila standing next to each other is every man’s fantasy,” said Kristy on last night’s A Shot At Love. “If it doesn’t, you’re gay.” Could Kristy (pictured above) be right? If so, the unofficial poll that I conducted among friends suggests that approximately 75% of all men in the U.S. are gay. Read more…
Wow. It’s not everyday that celebs match their make up to their dress, but Lil’ Kim seems to have mastered this look! At least she went for the look at the Sex and the City movie premiere, where anything goes in the outfit department and the uglier the better. Now if only she could do something about that creepy look in her eyes.
Ashlee‘s big sis has dropped her first single off her brand spankin’ new country album, and boy does it suck ya’ll! At least our little divorcee has learned a valuable less – if at first you don’t succeed, just try a different musical genre. But never fear, dear Jessica Simpson fans! If the song and subsequent country album both flop, she’ll have Tony Romo’s beefy arms to run into. The football star has taken his lady back under one condition – her dad stays out of the picture and stops messing with their relationship. Sadly, her career is another story.
Give Jessica’s new single – titled “Come On Over” – a listen and tell us what you think. Good, bad or ugly?

Week two started off with a bang for the prosecution as Lindsey Perryman, a former assistant to R. Kelly, testified that the alleged victim once showed up at Kelly’s studio with a “pillow and overnight bag.” (What? He didn’t have a spare pillow?) According to Perryman, this was not an isolated incident, but the alleged victim would come by the studio a couple of time’s a week. On one occasion, Perryman even claims to have driven the girl to Kelly’s home. Perryman identified both the alleged victim and Kelly as the ones in the tape. This eye witness is particularly damaging to the defense because she has no apparent ax to grind with Kelly.
+1 for the prosecution. Read more…
