Kim Kardashian to Press Charges Against Flour-Bomber

Kim Kardashian initially seemed to brush off her March 22 red carpet flour attack (watch above if you missed it) that came from a animal-rights supporter, but now that the dust has settled the reality star has said she’s pressing charges.

According to TMZ, Kardashian is taking legal action against the woman, claiming that she should take responsibility for her actions.

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she does not feel the woman who threw the flour at her should get away with it and that she should be her accountable for her actions. She is expected to press charges this week. According to our sources, Kim didn’t press charges that night because she didn’t want to take herself away from the event, which was for charity.

Kim Kardashian was at the launch of her newest fragrance when a woman ran up to her in the red carpet and dumped a sack of flour on the, later shouting, “Fur hag!” The woman was detained, but Kim brushed it off, and at first claimed she was “too busy” to press charges.

Now, apparently she wants to send the message that people are entitled to their opinion, but should not resort to violence.  ”What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?’ It’s scary,” Kim said.

What’s scary is that we live in a world where Kim Kardashian can take swift legal action against someone who threw baking ingredients on her for wearing a luxury coat, and yet there is still no justice for Trayvon Martin. But does she have a point or do you think she’s overreacting?

Allen Iverson’s Ex Demands List of Women He’s Slept With

Forget all these reality TV shows, celebrity divorces bring the most drama!

Back in 2011, after Allen Iverson’s wife Tawanna Iverson filed for divorce she told TMZ that despite all the rumors, “Cheating in the marriage has never been an issue. My decision to divorce has nothing to do with another woman”  adding “sometimes people just grow apart.”

Well, girlfriend has changed her entire tune and is now filing documents asking the former NBA baller to turn over a list of any and every woman he’s slept with while they were married.

According to TMZ, the documents demand that Allen”give the name and telephone number of every person other than your spouse whom you have had sexual relations and/or intimate physical contact from the date of the marriage to the date of trial.”

Mind you, the high school sweethearts were married for 10 years!  I can’t imagine how much paper that list would take for an NBA player  or the results of women being named (remember what happened when Tiger’s jump-offs started being called out?).

Tawanna hasn’t disclosed a reason for wanting the list, but how much you want to bet she found something out and is silently building a case to get the alimony, child support and full custody she’s seeking for the couple’s five kids? Hopefully Allen’s hands are clean!

Phaedra Lawyers Up Against Criminal Accusations From Tell-All Writer

Lies, all lies.  That’s what Phaedra Parks is calling the allegations that she was previously involved in insurance check fraud, auto-theft and racketeering, all slung by a woman named Angela Stanton. Stanton, who claims to be a partner in crime to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s previous alleged illegal activities, turned to Vibe last week to spill the details and promote her new book called Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil.

Like any good lawyer, Phaedra quickly objected, and she even tapped a few of her legal buddies to help smooth things out. “The interview circulating is a lie. My attys @bjbernstein & @LLinWood will deal w/this false & defamatory interview swiftly,” she  Tweeted (March 15).

The reality personality would be referring to her Atlanta-based lawyers B.J. Bernstein and Lin Wood.  Wood, a civil defense lawyer hired by the reality personality to to file defamation lawsuits against the allegations also made a statement on Twitter and said, “False accusations have been published about @PhaedraParks. @bjbernstein and I shall aggressively address and refute these lies. Stay tuned.”

It seems like Phaedra might be able to squash this. After all she’s been more than forthcoming about her husband’s criminal past on her Bravo network show. Why would she have left out such a huge detail out of her past especially while flaunting around as a defense lawyer knowing that anyone could dig up her past. I mean really, the internet finds out everything, if Phaedra had been charged with a crime in the past wouldn’t TMZ or somebody have pulled up the public record by now?

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks Accused of Extensive Criminal Past

Published by Dior Noir on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 10:00 am.

“Everybody knows” Phaedra Parks of the Real Housewives of Atlanta prides herself off being the “ultimate Southern belle”: a devoted wife and mother, lawyer, God-fearing funeral director and ever lover of all things “Ridickulous.”  But did you know she had an extensive criminal past? Well that’s what a woman named Angela Stanton claims.

Stanton, the author of a book called Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil, alleges Parks has committed insurance check fraud, auto-theft and racketeering. Her proof? Stanton says she was the Housewife’s partner in crime.

“We were all involved in a federal racketeering scheme against the federal government,” Stanton told Vibe exclusively while promoting the book. ““Stealing Porches, Hummers, Cadillacs, Corvettes, any hot whip at that time, we had it! We would basically go to the car lot and write down the VIN numbers of the vehicles that we felt as if we wanted to keep or would make a good sale…”

Stanton says she first met Phaedra through an artist named Drama and eventually started working with the reality star and her husband Apollo Nida on their side “business” of  cashing fraudulent insurance checks. She was eventually arrested for forgery and points out what Housewives has brought up before: Apollo has served time in jail (2004) for racketeering and theft.

But did Phaedra get off scott free? Or are these the bogus allegations of yet another fame-leech trying to make a buck?

Rihanna keeps trying to show and tell ya’ll she’s a bad girl, she’s even got her “Navy” of fans, ready to put a hit on her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown’s latest main squeeze Karrueche Tran.

TMZ reported that Breezy’s new girlfriend, a 23-year-old model, is afraid to leave her house after receiving death threats from Rihanna’s followers. The websites “sources” even told them that Tran “refuses to leave her house without Chris Brown’s hired muscle by her side”

The article came shortly after Rih seemingly threw shade at Brown’s Vietnamese girlfriend by posting a picture of rice cakes wearing sunglasses on Instagram with the caption, “Ima a make u my bi–h.”

But don’t think Karrueche’s taking Rihanna’s whole “thug life” moment laying down! Days ago the new girl Tweeted: “@Rihanna can never have him again.” Adding she “@Rihanna needs to grown up & be  a woman” and “she can’t even sing!” Notice how Brown’s beau got gully and dropped the pop star’s Twitter handle making sure she could see the smack talk!

After TMZ’s article Tran told her Twitter followers, “I would NEVER be afraid of a fan.”

Who’s bad?

Couple Watch: Toni Braxton and Eddie Murphy

Is Eddie Murphy un-breaking Toni Braxton’s heart?

Rumor has it the comedian has been dating the sultry singer for four months and sources even told Us Weekly they’re “very serious” and “their kids have met and everything.”  Although Toni’s rep say they’re “just friends,” adding that they’ve “been fans of each other’s work a long time” (having a flashback to ’92 when Toni added her voice to Boomerang soundtrack song “Love Should’ve Brought You Home La st Night” and everyone knows Eddie starred in the film).

Toni’s lackluster love life was a major plot line for her on her family’s reality WE TV reality show Braxton Family Values. If she and Eddie  are actually dating, or you know if that “friendship” happens to develop into something more the Murphy/Braxton combination could prove to be quite an interesting Brady Bunch scenario worthy of a spin-off!  Eddie has six kids including five from his marriage to Nicole Mitchell who he divorced in 2005 and one from a romp with former Spice girl Mel B.  Toni had two kids with estranged husband  Keri Lewis of the R&B group Mint Condition.

Of course before the couple can really get serious Toni would probably want to file some official “walking papers” with Lewis. The two aren’t actually divorced and reportedly have no plans to legally cut the knot anytime soon.   Hmm….

Do you see it for Eddie and Toni?

J.Lo Nip Slip at the Oscars?

Jennifer Lopez tried it again with another plunging gown at last night’s Oscars arriving in a  metallic Zuhair Murad gown but she should’ve used whatever double stick tape kept that infamous Versace Gammy’s gown up!

While presenting Best Costume Design (of all awards) alongside Cameron Diaz the American Idol judge had what appeared to be a nip-slip that set the Internet on fire. Parody accounts popped up—like @JlosNipple which garnered over a thousand followers at the end of the night—and several users  gave a  Janet/Super Bowl tie-in joke their best shot.

Now, surely J.Lo wanted to shine on Hollywood’s biggest night in the metallic piece she illuminated with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, but flashing her high beams? Too bad none of the designer winners from The Artist could help her out at the podium in time.

J-Lo’s former beau, Diddy, was also in the house to scoop up an Oscar for his Executive Producing role in the high-school football documentary Undefeated. Bet he enjoyed J-Lo’s peek-a-boo view!

Janet “Aunt Viv” Hubert Slams Wendy Williams: “You Crucified Whitney!”

Janet Hubert was feisty as the first “Aunt Viv” on Fresh Prince and every now and again she pops up to publicly tell someone about themselves. Last year that someone was her former co-star Will Smith and now she’s reprimanding Wendy Williams following the TV hosts’ on-camera breakdown while discussing the late Whitney Houston.

Wendy tearfully remembered Whitney on The Wendy Williams Show, just days after the iconic singer’s passing, but Janet wasn’t buying it.

“You said that morning with tears in your eyes, that you would not discuss Whitney any further, but you crucified her the whole time she was alive, as you do so many people on your show. I want to ask you why? What do you get out of this besides money?” Janet asked Wendy in an open letter obtained by Eurweb.

Wendy rose to fame in the early ‘90s spilling all the tea on celebrities lives on the radio and though she still follows celeb shenanigans on her current TV show, the entire production is much more tame. Still Janet wondered: “How do you sleep at night knowing that you are one of the biggest bullies in the world disguised as HOT TOPICS? Celebrities are not topics we are people, just like everyone else…”

The actress also took Wendy to task for comments made about Janet Jackson and “others you slam on a daily basis.” She ended the letter with a warning:  “You need to stop Wendy. We need to stop, and the world needs to stop. I need to stop as well. There will be no more quotes from me to be misquoted. We need to join together,” she wrote. “You will not always be up, you will not always be on the A-list and attend all the parties. Ride the wave, sister girl, but make sure you know how to swim when the ride is over.”

The Kardashians Might Be Sued for SlimQuick Endorsement

By now it’s pretty clear that the Kardashians will slap their names on just about any product that will help add cash to their growing empire, but they should’ve thought twice before fronting SlimQuick diet pills. The New York Post is reporting there might be a class action lawsuit against the girls  and their diet product, QuickTrim, which has made $45 million in revenue since the Kardashian sisters started working with them three years ago.

The problem with the product? The FDA doesn’t necessarily agree that it’ll snap consumers back to a curvaceous Kardashian form like the commercials claim. “The active ingredient in QuickTrim weight loss products is a large dose of caffeine . . . The FDA has determined that caffeine is not safe or effective for weight loss,” said law firm Bursor & Fisher, who is preparing a suit against Windmill and the Kardashians.

Some physicians claim that too much caffeine can cause jitters, high blood pressure and an increased pulse, although the Kardashians have touted the products praises. In January 2010, Kim said she used QuickTrim to shed 15 pounds in weeks. Last year she tweeted that she was using it to get in shape for her wedding, and Khloe also claimed she lost 15 pounds. Hmm….

Bursor & Fisher has won or settled cases against firms peddling products including hair loss remedy Avacor and diet supplement Xenadrine — so the Kardashian sisters better watch their backs!

Kobe Swears He Won’t Cheat Again, Is Vanessa Bryant Buying it?

Kobe Bryant may shut it down on the court but when it comes to his love life, he’s still taking the L. Despite reports that he’s been “aggressively” trying to reconcile with his estranged wife Vanessa and the cozy pictures of the two smooching on Valentine’s Day after a Laker game, the divorce is still on and TMZ.com reports she’s moving out.

Vanessa was spotted over the weekend looking for apartments in New York, far away from Kobe and his trail of Laker groupies.

Now, Kobe has sworn that he’ll never cheat on her again and sources say he’s even bought her “lavish gifts” and an expensive piece of jewelry.  Yes, this would be the same tactic he used after he famously “cheated” on his wife with a woman who accused him of sexual assault.

No one knows how his current gifts compare to the four million guilt diamond ring Kobe bought his wife in  2003, but it’s safe to say she doesn’t need gifts. The property Vanessa is reportedly shopping for would be her fourth: she now owns three  estates in Newport Beach, after Kobe transferred title to her as part of their divorce — which has not yet become final. She’s also due $75 million in the settlement.

Sources say they still won’t be surprised if Vanessa went back to Kobe, but should she finally split once and for all?
