Did Michelle Obama put Robin Robert’s Sexuality on Blast?

Although friends and co-workers have known for years, Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts  used her Facebook page (last week) to announce to the public and fans that she is a lesbian.

On Sunday, she wrote a thankful message about her recent battle with cancer and mentioned her longtime girlfriend saying,

In an end-of-the-year message posted on her Facebook “like” page Sunday, Roberts wrote: “I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.”

While Roberts did not give the name of her lady friend, People magazine has identified her as Amber Laign, a licensed massage therapist from San Francisco whom she met through mutual friends a decade ago.

Roberts appreciative and reflective Facebook posting came on the first anniversary of the 100th day of her recovery from her bone marrow transplant.

Roberts obviously chose a very smart and “casual” route to proclaim her sexual orientation. But First Lady Michelle Obama may have actually exploded the post to the attention of the whole world.

The First lady tweeted her support to Roberts Monday: “I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud.”

Do you think as many people would have noticed Robert’s post without the “help” of Mrs. Obama?

Do you think the First Lady is wrong and inapropriate for even congratulating such a controversial matter as sexual preference?



Chris Brown Left Karreuche Behind to Comfort Rihanna After Grandmother’s Death?

Now what could be “flyer” than Chris Brown’s private jet landing on Rihanna’s yacht?

Rumors are that Chris took a helicopter (piloted by Ludacris) to St. Tropez where he and Luda were meeting with Swizz Beatz to shoot a video later.

St Tropez France here I come,” Luda tweeted.

Then Chris Brown tweeted, “This ni–a Luda flying the damn helicopter! I’m shi–ing bricks right now.

Well  apparently  Breezy had another agenda as well. Because what pop beauty was also in France that weekend?

He left Karreuche (whom he was spotted with the night before and headed to St. Tropez. Why didn’t Karreuche go with him?

Upon arriving on the Meditteranean this past weekend, Chris Brown tweeted,

“Landed on a boat.”

Which has led many to believe Chris was referencing Rihanna’s yacht. The starlet had been in St. Tropez for over a week.

Minutes later she tweeted,

“Touch down baby, help me pick out my fit,”

So Rihanna and Chris must have spent some kind of time together.

But then later, after RiRi bid farewell and headed to Cannes, Karrueche shows up in France just in time to miss her, but enough time to spend with Chris while filming the video.



Just last week, before breaking her toe ( a liquor bottle fell on it,) Riri was partying with Chris’ rival Drake in France, who couldn’t care less who the pop star sleeps with.

Two weeks ago, Rihanna’s grandmother Clara “Dolly” Braithwaite passed after battling cancer. The Barbadian singer was very close to her grandmother, who attended one of her concerts earlier this year.

“Goodbye #grangranDolly get your beauty rest until I see you,” Rihanna tweeted, adding, “#grangranDolly that is all.”

She went on to Instagram photos of her granny throughout the day.

Chris Brown’s momager Joyce Hawkins sent her condolences.

@mombreezy thank you!” Rihanna tweeted back. “Love You Angel.”

After a terrible performance in Sweden, it is believed that Rihanna had already received the news of her grandmother’s death. The audience began to walk out after RiRi was 45 minutes late and even dedicated the wrong song to her Swedish audience.

Rihanna was very close to her grandmother, and last month, she spent Father’s Day in her grandmother’s New York hospital room. Afterward, she tweeted a series of photos and tweeted , “My heart smiled and cried all at once.”

So maybe Chris Breezy just went to console his good friend after Dolly passed away. No one knows Rihanna’s family like Chris and his mom. And he’s probably her only male companion that actually knew ‘ol Dolly.

Now that the action is over and both stars have left St. Tropez, their reps deny that they met up and Chris’ rep says he was there strictly for the video shoot. But where did Chris end up afterwards. He followed RiRi to Cannes, this time with Karreuche by his side.


farrah keeps the faith


As you know, l egendary actress and  Farrah Fawcett battling cancer. Her close friend, Alana Stewart has issued a statement about the current condition of the Charlie’s Angel.

“Farrah is in stable condition. She is resting. She is eating. Her spirits are up and she is still hoping for a cure,” Stewart has said.

Stewart has been shooting footage of the 62-year-old actress during her cancer battle for a two-hour documentary called “Farrah’s Story,” which is set to air May 15 on NBC.

Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett

Farrah’s longtime companion Ryan O’Neil is also very torn up about spending time and last days with the iconic sexy siren.

“It’s a love story,” he tells People magazine about the documentary. “I just don’t know how to play this one. I won’t know this world without her. Cancer is an insidious enemy.” 

In the interview, O’Neil reveals that chemotherapy has ended and Fawcett has lost her famous long blonde locks.

“She stays in bed now,” he says. “The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment. The treatment has pretty much ended.”

Redmond O’Neil, the son of Fawcett and O’Neil has been released temporarily from prison (on drug charges) to see his mother. However, the actress is unaware of the legal troubles her son faces.

“Farrah doesn’t know Redmond’s in trouble, and Redmond is terrified for his mother. ‘I don’t want to be in jail and have some guard tell me she is gone,’ he said to me. I told him, ‘She’s rebounding.’ I lied to him. I lie to her. It’s the best thing,” says father  O’Neal.

The documentary starts with Fawcett recording her first visit to the doctor and finding out that she had cancer. It follow her personal moments, the highs and lows of her illness and trips to Germany for several treatments not available in the U.S.”At about the halfway point in our trips the news started to get darker and darker and darker,” O’Neal says. “The hope started to fade. But not for Farrah. She continued fighting. There was always a courage there, and a quiet dignity. Farrah never changed. I fell in love with her all over again because of how she handled this.”

My prayers are with Ms. Fawcett, who I have always admired as one of the most beautiful and trendsetting Hollywood starlets.

Don’t miss Farrah’s Story May 15 on NBC.
