ALICIA KEYS COVERS MARIE CLAIRE

In the issue, Alicia discusses her relationship with Swizz Beatz, her evolution, and turn as a director and producer.  Alicia Keys flaunted her beauty in the Bahamas while shooting for Marie Claire’s U.K. edition. In the midst of the U.K. leg of her “Set the World on Fire” tour, the “Girl on Fire” graces the magazine’s July cover. 

She shows some skin in a yellow DVF jumpsuit and stuns in an animal-print Gucci gown while posing at a mansion on the beach.

Check out more photos from the summery shoot below and read the full interview in Marie Claire, on newsstands now.
On her initial thoughts about Swizz Beatz: “‘That’s When I Knew’ is definitely an ode to my husband… Honestly I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious.”
On what Swizz has taught her: “I think we’ve taught each other a lot. He’s taught me to live more fully and I think I’ve taught him to live more deeply.”
On her first impression of Swizz: “Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewelry, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, ‘He is so annoying.’”
On evolving: “You have to speak up. To say, ‘I don’t like that, it’s not cool, don’t do that to me,’ but it’s not easy, especially with people you love. I think getting older has made me evolve in a lot of ways and made me more relaxed about saying how I feel, no matter what.”
 On directing: “I fell in love with directing. Because first of all I didn’t have to get up early for make-up and, second, I’m a very diplomatic individual.”

THE VIEW HOST SHERRI SHEPARD FINDS A SURROGATE TO CARRY HER 2ND CHILD

Sherri Shepherd is pregnant...well, sort of. The host of "The View" told the Tom Joyner Morning Show that she and her husband Lamar Sally have found a surrogate to carry their child.
"We found a drama-free uterus," she told the radio hosts. "We found a girl that didn't have any drama in her life. We're putting in our egg and Sal's sperm and we'll let you know how it progresses."
 The talk show diva has been very candid about her struggle with fertility and her search for a surrogate. During an appearance on "The Rachael Ray Show" in October 2012, she opened up to the award-winning daytime TV host by offering incentives to any potential candidates.
"I'll give you a free weave and a Hyundai for a year," she said.
Shepherd, who already has an 8-year-old son, Jeffrey, was determined to have another baby with her second husband, regardless of age--she even offered reality show star Kim Kardashian a shot at being her surrogate.
“I don’t know how we’re going to have this baby because I’m in my forties and I can’t even remember my first son’s name,” she said. “But I’m going to have another baby because I’m feeling good.”

Looks like Sherri and Sal were successful in their search!

Bravo’s reality series “Don’t Be Tardy” is about to gain one more cast member. Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak is expecting her third child with husband and NFL star Kroy Biermann, a new report is claiming Wednesday.

According to In Touch, the 35-year-old reality star revealed her growing belly during a recent family beach vacation. The pregnancy will make it the fifth child for Zolciak, the second in less than one year. Zolciak and Biermann, 27, welcomed their first child as a couple together in 2011, Kroy Jagger Biermann Jr., known as K.J., now 2. Zolciak had her last child, Kash Biermann, nine months ago.
“Kim and Kroy are so excited to be pregnant again,” a source told the magazine. “She’s been trying to keep it quiet. She didn’t realize she’s showing as much as she is. … They didn’t plan it, but they’re thrilled.”
 See the photos of Kim Zolciak’s pregnant beach body here.

The pregnant star already has 16-year-old Brielle Zolciak and 11-year-old Ariana Toce, both with former flames. In Touch reported that Biermann, a defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons, is currently in the process of trying to adopt both minors.
On a recent episode of “Don’t Be Tardy” the couple revealed plans to conceive a third child within the next year. Zolciak confessed she wanted to delay her next pregnancy since she was not interested in having three children under the age of 2.5 out of fear of needing vaginal rejuvenation.
The couple also expressed their desire to have a girl after the two boys, the reality star even looking up specific rumored techniques on how to conceive a female on the program. “It’s very easy for me to get pregnant, clearly,” said Zolciak. “We’re married. We can just keep having babies. What’s the big deal?”

VIDEO: KELLY ROWLAND GIVES AN EMOTIONAL INTERVIEW ABOUT BEYONCE

Now that the Dirty laundry is all aired out, Kelly Rowland has been faced with questions regarding her relationship with BeyoncĂ©. During a sit-down interview with “omg! Insider,” an emotional Kelly shot down rumors of a rift between her and B and teared up while speaking about her “sister.”

For years, people have been pitting the Destiny’s Child divas against one another. “I think the people wanted those stories for years and that’s just so sad on them because it’s not like that,” she told Kevin Frazier. 
“It’s so crazy and I just think it’s so sad that we live in a world where people don’t want to see women get along and encourage and empower each other, and that’s what we do for each other.”
Despite the rumors, she and B are closer than ever. “I love my sister and she is so incredibly supportive,” said Kelly as tears rolled down her face. “One of the closest people to me. I love her to death and I love being an aunt.”
The two have endured a lot throughout their careers. “I definitely think it makes friendship stronger and I’m so grateful for her, for Michelle, for Angie, for Solange, for my mama T, for my mother, for being incredible women in my life and always lifting me up,” said Kelly, once again tearing up.

She shared B’s reaction after she played The-Dream-penned song for her. “She looked at me and said, ‘It’s incredible,’ and said how proud she was of me, and then said, ‘I never left,’” said Kelly, whose album Talk a Good Game is due June 18. “It was so true. She never left. I checked out for a minute.”

Kelly also opens up about her abusive relationship and new “X Factor” gig during the full interview, which airs tonight on “omg! Insider.”

NAOMI FIRES MODEL FOR GOING OUT WITH HER EX-BILLIONAIRE BOYFRIEND

First he was spotted with an Naomi Campbell look alike in which we previously reported and now she slapped with the lowest blow of all.  The aspiring model seen frolicking with Naomi Campbell's ex-boyfriend has been fired by her management firm for 'unprofessional conduct' and an 'unacceptable work ethic'.  aka tacky b**tch!! 

British supermodel Naomi, 42, mentored Luo Zilin, a former Miss Universe China, on her reality show The Face earlier this year.  Luo, 25 - also known as Zi Lin - is reportedly dating Naomi's former love, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin - with the couple seen passionately embracing on the Spanish party island of Ibiza. 


And Neal Hamil, President, MIX Model Management NYC, confirmed that he ended the model's contract last week.
Hopefully Luo hasn’t triggered Campbell’s legendary temper. A source told the Daily Mail, “'It's fair to say that Luo and Vlad met through Naomi, it's really unprofessional of Luo and it's not great behavior on Vlad's behalf."
Page Six exclusively revealed that Campbell and the Russian billionaire put their five-year relationship on a break early last month. Shortly after the split, Doronin was spotted getting cozy on his yacht with bikini babe and Naomi-lookalike, Jazzma Kendrick.
