She and Cissy Houston let it be known that they do not endorse or believe in Bobbi Kristina’s relationship with Gordon. According to Pat, it’s probably just a phase. Ouch! Pat Houston also defends the fact that Bobbi Kristina is drinking wine at 19, which does not sit well with Barbara Walters.

When news broke of actress Zoe Saldana playing legendary singer Nina Simone, the internet went partial crazy. Mostly because  a lot of people felt that Zoe was the complete opposite physically of what Nina Simone looked like.  Even Jill Scott spoke about it to online mag Hello Beautiful, saying Zoe should wear a ‘prosthetic nose and darker makeup’ to portray Nina. Well The Daily Mail managed to snag a couple of pictures of Zoe made up, in character.

Lemme first say that it’s amazing what people will put up with but after the fact, it THEN becomes “strange” or a problem.  According to TMZ, 45 year old Lanita Thomas is suing Magic Johnson for suddenly firing her last month.  Lanita worked as a flight attendant on his private jet from 2004 until last month. Lanita said Magic fired her because she was 15 minutes late but claims it was really because he wanted a younger flight attendant to service him.

And speaking of servicing him, Lanita also claims that Magic had some pretty unique requests on his jet:

In her suit, Thomas admits she WAS 15 minutes late to work one day … but says it was only because Magic insists on two specific types of turkey meat on his sandwiches … and she was held up at the deli counter.

She also says Magic was “very particular that all snacks were fresh” … especially when it came to liquorice.
