Amber Rose Is Out: Amber Rose says and thinks that, in hindsight, she probably should have passed on Dancing With The Stars. Her reason, though, may shock you. “I’m not really good with a lot of attention. I probably shouldn’t have done this show, but whatever,” she told E! News on Monday. “I’m just not good with a lot of eyes on me and a lot of ‘Oh, you’re doing great, everything’s good…'” In fact, Amber had doubts about continuing early on and she confided in her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “I don’t know, Maks. I don’t know man, this is just so hard,” she remembers telling him. “Tell me this is the hardest dance we’ll ever have to do.” For a woman who is rather open about her sexuality and no stranger to attention, it’s a bit of a surprise to hear her speak about not being comfortable with a lot of eyes on her. The duo was given the boot from the show on Monday on Latin Night, after receiving a 28 out of 40 from the four judges for their Cha-cha to “Bla Bla Bla Cha Cha Cha” by Petty Booka. Perhaps, she was relieved she lost.
Mary J. Blige’s Husband Wants To Get Paid: According to Bossip, who reported earlier in the summer that the legendary singer Mary J. Blige filed divorce papers against her longtime manager/husband Kendu Issacs, her estranged hubby has clapped back with reasons for spousal support following the breakup.

His argument is simple — Mary was the breadwinner during their 12-year marriage and got him used to their lavish lifestyle. Kendu claims he earned anywhere between $1.5 to $5.1 million over the last two years as her manager, but has earned zero income since Mary kicked him to the curb.

I want to cancel the wedding after learning my fiancée used to date my brother.
Q. I am scheduled to marry next month, but I’m seriously contemplating canceling the wedding, because of something my fiancée recently confessed to me.

Hank was hard to impress and prided himself on being honest. He viewed people who skirted the truth as weak and spineless. He also didn’t approve of soft-pedaling language. To him, the truth could stand on its own and therefore should be expressed regardless of the consequences. For Hank, truth had a certain shock value and he enjoyed watching its impact on others. He would get excited at the prospect of blowing someone away with his bluntness. MORE
A Major Romance Risk

Recent studies show that more single women across this country are subjecting their young daughters to perilous encounters with live-in lovers whom they’ve chosen as companions.

I told her not necessarily, but she had to have the confidence to sustain her just in case she was rejected. I also explained that this kind of act usually works best when a woman sparkles with personality and looks good as well. MORE
