Here's wishing everbody nominated the best of luck


I really can't decide who the most beautiful of them all is. To me it's between Genevieve, Omotola and Stella Damasus. But I decided to add other actresses I think are also beautiful. My younger brother thinks Ini Edo is the most beautiful. One of my sisters thinks it's Lilian Bach. Who do you guys think it is? Have another look at all my eight nominees. It's possible that your favourite is not on the list, so just send in the name of who you think is the most beautiful in Nollywood

I think this two have found true love. People like this make you want to fall in love. Heidi is rich, beautiful and famous, she could have had anyone in the world but she choose to be with a man a lot of people refer to as 'scarface'. He must have a beautiful soul

Heidi and their new born son

The couple with their son and Heidi's daughter from a previous relationship


Figured you guys would be interested in this story. I find it very very annoying. Eddie Murphy is an IDIOT. Please read why

Eddie and new girlfriend, Tracy Edmonds

Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy has apparently underestimated the girl power still wielded by Melanie Brown, who is loudly declaring that her ex is indeed the father of her unborn baby, despite his public questioning of paternity.
"I am obviously upset and distressed at some of the comments made by Eddie Murphy to the media," the bygone Scary Spice said in a statement on Thursday (via People). "I have no idea why anybody would want to conduct themselves in this kind of manner about such a personal matter in such a public way ... I was astonished at what Eddie said -- there is absolutely no question that Eddie is the father."
According to published reports, Brown, 31, only discovered that Murphy, 45, had kicked her to the curb on Monday, when friends called to comfort her after he announced during an interview with a Dutch TV show that they were kaput.
"You're being presumptuous because we're not together anymore," he replied when the reporter asked about the pregnancy chatter. "And I don't know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."
The London Sun quotes a stunned Brown as telling a friend, "I'm shell-shocked by the whole thing. As far as I was concerned we hadn't really broken up -- we'd just had a bit of a row."
On Monday night, Murphy arrived at the New York premiere of "Dreamgirls" arm-in-arm with his new squeeze, film producer -- and former Mrs. Babyface -- Tracey Edmonds, who helpfully informed People that they had been seeing each other "for about a month and a half" and are "very happy."
"This was extraordinarily brazen, what he did," a Brown pal rails to the mag. "If he had fallen in love with somebody else, that would have been pretty bad anyway, but to then wheel her out in public for a deliberate photo op, when Melanie's pregnant! That's a rat, frankly."
Continues the confidante, "Melanie insists there is absolutely no question whose baby this is. And she resents the inference that she wouldn't know whose baby it was. It's fairly simple. She hasn't slept with anyone else."
The friend adds that Brown, who has a 7-year-old daughter, Phoenix, will undergo a paternity test.
"Melanie's gone through shock, pain, anger, the whole range of emotions," explains the source. "A lot of women or men in this situation would go to ground but she wants to take it head on."
Just three months ago, Murphy was proudly professing his schmoopy feelings for Brown, telling paparazzi, "Me and Mel B are madly in love."
So what went wrong?
The London Daily Mirror posits that the oddball pair was partially done in by Brown's shaky relationship with Murphy's family, especially his live-in mom, who, a mole snitches, "didn't approve" of her.
The romance sparked in June, two months after Murphy finalized his divorce from his wife of 12 years, Nicole Mitchell, with whom he has five children (he also has a son from a previous relationship).
Engagement rumors started soon after, which Eddie was quick to dismiss. Still, a source tells the Mirror, "Mel's beyond gutted. She was set to marry this guy and now he's knocked the wind out of her."
For those of you who have not been following the story...this is it. Eddie was dating Mel B, she got pregnant and he's denying paternity and is dating someone else while the girl is pregnant. That is the lowest thing any man can do.


This story about Wesley Snipes being Arrested on Tax Fraud Charges really troubles me. He was arrested on friday morning, 8th november 2006 after arriving at Orlando International Airport. Snipes, 44, was returning from shooting a movie, Gallowwalker, in our beloved continent. Namibia to be precise.

Snipes was charged in October with fraudulently claiming refunds totaling nearly $12 million in 1996 and 1997 on income taxes already paid. The star of the Blade trilogy and White Men Can’t Jump was also charged with failure to file returns from 1999 through 2004.
According to the indictment, Snipes had his taxes prepared by accountants with a history of filing false returns to reap payments for their clients.
If convicted, he faces up to 16 years in prison.
I don't know exactly what the real truth is, because he has denied all charges, but I do know that he doesn't deserve to be jailed for the next 16 years of his life. He didnt kill anyone did he? Please let's all pray for him. Lets not forget he is a black man. Strange things happen to them in the USA, especially if they are very successful.


I read recently that R&B diva and my second all time favourite songstress (the first being Whitney Houston), Beyonce Knowles is 32 years old . Supposedly born September 4, 1974 and not September 4, 1981 like she we all think. Is there any truth in this? Many websites and blogs have been carrying this disturbing news. A particular celeb gossip site called MediaTakeOut.com claimed to have a document from the Texas Department of Health proving that Beyonce was born in 1974. Later, somebody from that same department said the authenticity of that document could not be ascertained, that the document wasnt an official birth record. But those who started this rumour are insisting that the document looks 'very real'. But I know from reading her biogragraphy that beyonce attended the visual and Performing Arts in Houston, Texas between 1997-2000. If she was born in 1974, does that mean she attended high school from age 23years to 26years? Is that possible people? Is she that dumb? Does it also mean that she was 23 when she appeared in the first Destiny's Child video, no no no in 1997? She was 23 and the other girls were 16, 17 and 18?
Linda says go tell that to the marines. Our girl Beyonce can never be 32, she doesn't look it, doesn't act it and definitely isn't it. So shove the 'real' document up your asses mediatakeout.com (pardon the porn). If Beyonce is 32, then I guess Kelly Rowland is 33? Just because the girl has achieved so much in her very young life, they are assuming she faked her age? A twenty five year old can't achieve world success and win all those awards?
If Beyonce is 32, then I guess Britney Spears is 31. Or what do you guys think?
