The Randomness PART 2: Ny Housewife's husband leaves her for ethiopian/Idris kisses and tells about Beyonce/Isiah W kicked out of his house?
Busy week with the randomness so let's get started.
If anyone watches the Real Housewives of New York,u may be familiar with Lu an Delesseps.Otherwise known as the countess.Of what i wonder?Anyway,just as she was celebrating her 16th wedding anniversary ,she got an email from he husband asking for a divorce and telling her that he was leaving her for an Ethiopian woman.wow..
Moving on,congrats to Idris Elba as his movie Obsessed was the number one movie when it opened.Click here for more on that
Apparently ,there was a rumor circulating around the blogosphere that him and B had beef ,but that was all put to rest when he talked about the kissing scenes that he had to do with B.According to one of my fave blogs (after this one ofcourse.)theybf.com,
"The pair became close on day one, when director Steve Shill demanded they pucker up for a passionate kiss just minutes after meeting each other.
Elba explains, “It was weird when I met her - within 20 minutes we had to kiss. I wasn’t complaining. It was full on, we had to do these pictures for the wall and it was full on kissing. I was like, ‘Oh god, I’m kissing Beyonce, I can’t believe it.’”
But not all the scenes between the pair were as fun to film for Elba. Idris says, “There’s a scene where Beyonce goes nuts at me and that was pretty scary.”
Isiah Washington ,former star of Grey's Anatomy who just traced his ancestry and is from sierraleone got evicted from his house after failing to make payments.According to usmagazine.com ,"He and his wife faced eviction after falling $100,000 behind on rent, according to documents filed in Santa Monica, Calif. on Tuesday. They were told they needed to move out unless they paid the overdue amount". SHAME.
First things first,tanzania is def representing!Mona Lewis is a tanzanian former beauty queen who is now a senior business manager and is now repping for TZ on the uk version of the apprentice (love that show).So anyway,unfortunately ,apparently ,one of her teamates caused controversy when she would not allow the tanzanian to be featured in the ad that the group was creating because
"We have already got an ethnic minority. If we have two ethnic minorities, it will be like we are advertising for The Ethnic Minorities Sportswear Club". Thats what her Iranian team-mate said .She then went on to say that their white male colleague should be in the ad because " He looks so much better."Okay...smh that these issues still exist.Gud luck 2 Mona !
So ,incase u've been hiding under a rock ,u wud know that the first African was featured as playmate of the year.Ida Ljunqvist is half Tanzanian and half sweedish and will be featured in the july issue of playboy (guys ,u can start saving..lol).She won a madza car .Yeah ,I would be happy with getting a mazda car for posing nude Mr Heffner..isnt he rich to get her a better car?oh well..
U knw the story does'nt end there ,cuz apparently Miss Ida is involved in a bitter divorce with her husband Joshua Rang,is having an affair with another dude ,and was on some website looking for men with "cash".Hmm..seems like the playboy money is running out.Maybe she should ask Hugh if she can move into the mansion?
SHOUTOUT TO THE CUTEST TANZANIAN I KNW MISS IRENE KILOWOKO!
For all you Estelle fans ,the singer is working on her new album that she wants to release at the end of the year ,but I have an an audio of a new song she is featured on that you can listen to here .Its called IM THE SHIT.
The singer is now expanding her business to include a handbag collaboration with a desinger called Jonathan K.here are some pics of them promoting their bagThat bag is hawt.Oh yeah,she does have a stylist (who shud be fired ) but she usually "styles myself .On tour I wear my own outfits".(That explains it).Well she seems to be stepping up her style and has you may follow her on twitter page .
Moving on ,Ethiopian model Liya Kebede has launched her own line of clothes for kids called Lemlem that will be sold exclusivley at Jcrew.Shes on facebook as well(I think she updates her own page )so check her out here. .You can read an article about her and her charity by clicking here
