Aishwarya Rai shows off post baby body

She hasn't lost that much baby weight but she's still rocking. The former Miss World and Bollywood actress was heavily criticized for not losing the baby weight seven months after giving birth but she's not concerned about what people think. She's enjoying motherhood!. 

Funke Akindele's church wedding to hold today

You all heard her engagement will hold today May 26th...but what you all didn't know is that her church wedding will also hold today. The initial report was December, but very a reliable source told me Funke will official wed Kenny Almaroof at a church wedding and engagement ceremony that will hold today at All Season Plaza Ikeja. And contrary to reports she's spending 25m for her wedding, the actress laughed it off when contacted, saying if she had 25m, she would rather buy land than spend it on a wedding.

Funke is Christian. Wishing her all the best. Will bring you wedding photos.

Check out a billionaire wife's wedding ring

What is wrong with this Mark Zuckerberg, biko? Is it that he's cheap or he's saving money to save the world? He's worth $20 billion and that's the ring he bought for his wife? His new wife Priscilla Chan, 27, was spotted in California two days ago wearing her ruby wedding ring. It's not like its very cheap...experts say it's probably worth over $50 thousand dollars but that's cheap considering her husband is among the 15 richest men in the world...:-)

Not only that, she actually wore an off-the-rack wedding dress by Claire Pettibon worth a few hundred dollars on her wedding day. You two spend money, dammit! Lol

What happened to diamonds? You know some of these men can be unreliable. One day now he'll wake up from sleep, turn towards you and say 'I want a divorce'...and all you get is a wedding ring that you will be lucky to sell off at a pawn shop? *Hiss*

Meanwhile, I heard that Mrs Zuckerberg has no claim to one kobo of Mark's $20b. He married her just one day after he raked in $20 billion after taking Facebook public. Under California Law if one person builds a business and sells it immediately before being married the spouse has no legal claim to the proceeds of the sale. Priscilla as Mark's wife now has 50% interest in any proceeds earned from the growth of Facebook since they got married last week Saturday May 19th. And Facebook's stock is not doing very well now! *sigh*

Girl, get him to buy you better ring, and a mansion (consult Kobe Bryant's wife). Make hay while the sun shines...lol.

Who wore it better?

Dear LIB readers: Help, my colleague sucks

From a LIB reader:
My colleague sucks..yes!!! Big time. She has sooooo many nasty habits I cannot even "begin to start" counting..
A) she begs-anything u chop, she must wan chop even if na kuli-kuli and she does it unashamedly. Everyone has noticed but no one wants to say anything..its horrible. She even stares at your food till you lose appetite for it. The one I hate pass, you put your drink on the table she picks it up and gulps sticking her tongue into the bottle*rme*
B) she sneezes , coughs, blows her nose, talks loudly (can't control her pitch),chews like ......
All these and so many more.
No one wants to correct her but they don't suffer as much as I do..I sit close to her and I cannot move for now..I can't even concentrate. How do I address this without coming across as rude? Thanks.

South Korea set for first chemical castration of serial rapist

South Korea is getting ready to chemically castrate a serial rapist, a 45-year-old offender identified only as Park, who was convicted of four rapes or attempted rapes on children under the age of 13.

This is the first time the country will employ the punishment under legislation passed in 2010, Korean media reported yesterday. The legislation is intended for use against sexual deviants who are believed to likely re-offend.

Chemical castration of men who prey on little girls? I support 100%.
