Former NBA center John Amaechi, who spent five seasons with four teams, on Wednesday became the first NBA player to publicly come out. His admission comes three years after his playing career ended, making him the sixth professional male athlete from one of the four major U.S. sports -- basketball, baseball, football, hockey -- to openly discuss his homosexuality. Amaechi details his life in his autobiography "Man in the Middle," which will be released Feb. 14. "He is coming out of the closet as a gay man," Amaechi's publicist Howard Bragman said "The fact that John has done this, maybe it will give others the comfort or confidence to come out as well, whether they are playing or retiring," Hill said. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx HOUSE OF GLITZ: OK NOW THIS IS BECOMING A TREND ANOTHER DOWN LOW BROTHER!!!

The company plans to have a DVD titled "Kim Kardashian Superstar" in stores by Feb. 28, with additional footage on kimksuperstar.com. Vivid co-chairman Steven Hirsch said, "We are comfortable that we have the legal right to distribute this video . . . I've seen the video and it's really great. It has over 30 minutes of explicit sex that fans of erotica will find very appealing . . . Apparently, the video was shot by Ray J about three years ago when he and Kim were in a relationship. Viewers will definitely get their money's worth." A rep for Kardashian said, "Are you [bleep]ing me? Kim is going to die . . . are you sure?" Later, he added, "She will be taking legal action against anyone responsible for this. She was unaware of this and caught completely off-guard." Ray J could not be reached.

"We were told the winner would be an instant millionaire, that our faces would be plastered everywhere in Revlon ads. None of which turned out to be true ... I still haven't got paid for the work I did for them!" steamed Curry. Miss Curry is super mad at the supermodel show, blasting them on her MySpace blog, saying "... they had no money ... no clue what they were doing ... all they had was mind f***ing us for good tv [sic]."

FAMILY OF SLAIN BODYGUARD ARE PISSED OFF WITH BUSTA: Relatives of Israel Ramirez heated over rapper’s refusal to talk to police.
Labels: Very SAD...
*The police aren’t the only ones frustrated by Busta Rhymes and his refusal to cooperate with the investigation into the shooting of his bodyguard, Israel Ramirez. According to the New York Daily News, Ramirez’s family is now completely through with the entertainer and has branded him a bold face liar. "We really don't want anything to do with that man," Ramirez's sister, Sonia Rodriguez, 44, told the Daily News. "He could stop breathing tomorrow, and I wouldn't care. Whatever happens to Busta Rhymes is not going to bring back my brother." The family’s ire is rooted in a phone call they say came from Busta months after Ramirez was gunned down on the Brooklyn set of the artist’s remix video for “Touch It.” According to the family, Busta was emotional and assured them that he was cooperating with police. However, it has been widely reported that Busta is a devotee of “no snitching” street justice and has kept his mouth shut around investigators thus far. "He's not talking," a police source told the newspaper. "He doesn't want to lose money by getting the reputation for talking to cops, so a killer remains free." Ramirez's family only found out the truth after seeing news reports - months after Rhymes made his earnest phone call last August - confirming that he had still not spoken to detectives.

They have a daughter Hailie, aged 11. Only recently Kim blasted the rapper on his constant cheating during their time together, claiming there is no hope for a reconciliation, fuming: "I'm done."

In a sloppy, exciting, rainsoaked NFL title game, the Colts defeated the Bears 29-17 to become the new Super Bowl champions. It was the first time the game was played in the rain, the first with opposing black coaches and the first with the opening kickoff returned for a touchdown.
