By Quibian Salazar-Moreno For the next couple of weeks, it looks like Lil Jon will be taking a break from the recording studio to watch the NHL Playoffs. Yes, that’s right. Apparently, Lil Jon is a huge hockey fan and even a bigger fan of the Atlanta Thrashers. He’s such a huge fan that he is now blogging for the NHL during the entire playoffs. “I’ve been a hockey fan a long time,” Jon wrote on his blog. “I used to go watch the Atlanta Flames play back in the day when I was a little kid. I actually have one of the Atlanta Flames’ old jerseys because I bought the throwback. Then I got re-introduced to the game because my son plays hockey and I wanted to get him to a real game. So we started going to the Thrashers games. The first Thrashers game I went to they got into a shootout. That was amazing, and they won, and I was like dope! That really made me fall all the way in love with it. That first game they won, and they even used to call us a good luck charm, my son and I, because whenever we were in-house they won. We’ve been going so often that now I’m in cool with the players and the owner, and they’ve welcomed us into their household. We love to go to the games to have fun and support the team.” Jon has made a post since April 9, but you can check out the blog HEREthat he shares with other celebs like William Fichtner (Prison Break), Christie Brinkley, and Eddie Cahill (CSI: NY).
By: Hot Gossip Gal Ok it turns out that Jenny from the block may be getting rid of her annoyingly controlling hubby Marc Anthony. He actually owes some serious back taxes, so you can kinda understand why he is stuck to his gal like glue as she is the breadwinner in that household.

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno It seems like Russell Simmons’ ex-lady, Kimora Lee, is doing just fine without him. She recently scored her own reality show on the Style Network tentatively called “Kimora”. The show will premiere this summer with cameras following her through her busy days. "Kimora Lee Simmons is simply a fascinating woman," said Salaam Coleman Smith, Executive Vice President, The Style Network. "She is refreshingly blunt, absolutely honest and outrageously entertaining … the kind of woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. Nothing she does is small, nothing she says is insignificant and nothing she wants is unavailable. This series is going to open a lot of women’s eyes to the possibilities life has to offer, and all of us at Style are happy to be working with such an inspirational woman." Kimora currently runs the day-to-day operations of the Baby Phat clothing line and the show will give a peek on what she was to go through on a normal day. She’s also busy raising her children, seven-year-old Ming Lee and four-year-old Aoki Lee, who will also get some screen time. Check with STYLE NETWORK in the coming weeks to get the show’s schedule.

By: Hot Gossip Gal Sorry but I have to give credit to my girl Miss Info on this. Here is what she posted to her blog today, details from an e mail she received about how Pac is really alive and ready to walk back out on the stage again, on Comedy Central no less.

By: Rizoh Despite her lawyer’s attempt to get a $120 million assault lawsuit dismissed, Janet Jackson will have to testify in court and answer questions under oath. 41-year old Leonard Salati alleges that two of Jackson‘s bodyguards grabbed and choked him when he tried to pass her a note at Club Marquee in February 2004. Jackson’s attorney argued that she and her co-defendant, Jermaine Dupri, had only one bodyguard working for them at the Chelsea hot spot that night, and he was a "Caucasian," not African-American as Salati had claimed. Yesterday, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Rolando Acosta allowed the case to go on, stating that despite Jackson‘s assertions to the contrary, the club—which was also named in the lawsuit—said she had at least three bodyguards, and two of them were African-American. “Notwithstanding counsel’s valiant effort to shield Ms. Jackson,” said Judge Acosta, “the law grants no exemptions based on celebrity status.” Ouch! Sorry Ms. Jackson, but that’s just one thing the cleavage won’t grant you access to.
By: Rizoh Snoop may not be going to the doghouse after all. The 35-year-old west coast wordsmith, born real name is Calvin Broadus Jr., was given five years probation and 800 hours of community service (400 of those will be devoted to his Youth Football League) after pleading a “no contest” to weapons and drugs charges. Snoop’s attorney Donald Etra said his client was grateful for the sentence. “He recognizes that he got a great a deal and he fully intends to make sure nothing prohibits him from keeping his part of the bargain.” Snoop basically got a slap on the wrist for toting guns and weed. I doubt a non-celebrity would receive the same courtesy. On a related note, the Dogg Father still has a pending case to answer to. He pled not guilty to possession of a deadly weapon in January after a collapsible police baton was found in his luggage as he attempted to catch a flight to San Francisco in September last year.
By: Hot Gossip Gal Yes it is true there is a NWWL in existence and it is hosted by none other than Carmen Elektra although she doesn’t actually appear in the nude. The show premiered on indemand pay per view last night and I am sure it has already got a pretty big following. take a peek here on the site NWWL Beyonce Told To Cover Up In Japan Yeah Jays girl was told to cover up her boobies in as she was about to enter a press conference on her recent tour to Japan. Wonder what Momma Tina has to say about that and to be honest B’s team should have known better than to have her flaunting her assets like that in a country that holds their women in highest regard.

She didnt come out on G-Unit, she flopped on J Records and no matter what Duke Da God says about his label being ‘the dopest group of all time’..their boy Cam comes off a bit like the clown at my kids birthday party last week.
By: Rizoh Gather round, D-Block fans. Jadakiss recently told Hot 97 FM’s DJ Envy that The Lox’s album will be coming out this summer: “I’m trying to drop The Lox album first, anytime between May and June,” said Kiss. As for his own solo disc, Kiss said: “Then I’m trying to come right behind that with a ‘Kiss album, if it goes well. If not, I may have to come first. I’m pushing for The Lox to come first because that project is almost finished.” “It’s crazy, son. It’s been like six years since we dropped a Lox album. So it was an experience we were waiting to do again. It’s interesting to see how the songs come out after all these years,” said Jadakiss about the group’s comeback. The biggest question on the lips of fans is “What label will the new Lox album be issued on?” Jada’s response? “That’s another interview. It’s almost squared away. The deal should be done by early next week.” Fingers crossed.
By Quibian Salazar-Moreno Snoop Dogg was charged with gun possession by a felon and a marijuana-related drug violation yesterday according to Los Angeles prosecutors. Snoop is expected to be formally charged with the crimes early today, where he could face up to four years in prison. The charges stem from his October arrest at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank where he was taken into custody on suspicion of transportation of a controlled substance. Burbank police then executed a search warrant on Snoop house where they found a gun. He was arrested again on November 28 after an appearance on the Jay Leno show. Snoop was convicted on felony drug possession and possession for sale in 1990. If he is convicted of all the current charges, he could face four years in a state prison.
