Babymama Drama: Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife Siohvaughn Says He Won’t Allow Her To See Their Sons On Mother’s Day

Should DWade let his sons spend Mother’s Day with his crazy ex?

Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife Says He Won’t Let Her See Their Sons On Mother’s Day

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn is back on her best bullisht.

via Gossip Extra

Another championship drive for the Miami Heat — more off-the-court drama for Dwyane Wade.

Wade, whose battles with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches are slowly becoming the stuff of legend, now is being accused by Funches of denying their two children their upcoming Mother’s Day visitation.

It’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: Funches’ lawyer says Wade is refusing to have the two boys dropped off at their mother’s house by May 11, Mother’s Day.

Why?  Just to annoy the lady!

At least, that’s what Funches’ attorney claims.

“Anything Dwyane and his lawyers do to make my client’s life a living hell, they do,” said the Boca Raton-based family-law guru Lisa Macci. “They’ve announced their intention of denying her a court-ordered Mother’s Day visitation, so I’m filing an emergency motion to force them to hand her the children on Mother’s Day.”

Funches and Wade, who has custody of Zaire, 12, and Zion, 6, have been back and forth since Wade filed for the split in 2007.

Siohvaughn’s long history of bizarre behavior definitely can’t be denied, but do you think DWade would be right to prevent her from seeing their kids on Mother’s Day if these reports are true?

Baby Mama Drama: Evelyn Lozada’s Boo Carl Crawford Hit Up For $15,000 Per Month In Child Support By Ex!

MLB 2014: Giants vs Dodgers APR 05

Gotta pay like you weigh, playa

Carl Crawford’s Baby Mama Demands $15,000 Child Support Increase

According to TMZ reports:

Carl Crawford’s baby mama is demanding $15k-per-month in child support, TMZ Sports has learned … which seems high until you factor in his $142 MILLION contract with the Dodgers.

The outfielder is still in the middle of a child support war with his ex Amy Freeman — who claims in new legal docs that she can’t take of their two young kids on the measly $5k-per-month she’s getting from Carl right now.

So, she’s asking a judge to temporarily raise his payment to a “reasonable” $15k per-month — or $189k-per-year.

The judge has yet to rule … but Crawford doesn’t seem to have a problem with cash — he recently took his new baby mama Evelyn Lozada out to dinner in L.A. in a brand new $300k Bentley.

He had to know this was coming as soon as he signed his name on that dotted line.

Comeback Season: Struggle Baller Vince Young Signs With The Cleveland Browns

Vince Young

Vince won’t have to sign autographs for $59 a pop anymore.

Vince Young Signs With The Cleveland Browns

Things are looking up for Vince after the Cleveland Browns have decided to give The QB another shot in the NFL.

According to Bleacher Report:

The Cleveland Browns have reached an agreement with Vince Young to provide further quarterback depth. Young hasn’t played a regular-season snap in the NFL since 2011 and will be hoping to crack the roster.

The franchise confirmed the deal via its Twitter account:

vince young signs with the browns1

The two-time Rose Bowl MVP made cameos with the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers in recent years. He wasn’t able to catch on with either team on a permanent basis, and it looked like his football career might be over.

However, the Browns apparently saw enough during recent workouts to give him another chance. He joins a quarterback depth chart that includes Brian Hoyer and Alex Tanney.

Do you think Vince can make this work or will he fawk up this opportunity too?

All In The Family: Donald Sterling’s Wife Rochelle Once Called Tenant “You Black MF’er” And Said Latinos Are Filthy

Rochelle Sterling

Rochelle Sterling was seen smiling and cheering at the Clippers game Tuesday against the Warriors despite the lifetime ban on her husband’s involvement with the team and the $2.5 million fine levied against him.

Donald Sterling’s Wife Rochelle Was Implicated In Discrimination Suit

Clippers coach Doc Rivers revealed she’d called him before attending the game to make sure it was appropriate. Rivers said he had compassion toward Sterling because “she did nothing wrong” and had “been through as much as anyone,” but it appears from court records that isn’t entirely true.

According to NY Daily News reports:

Shelly Sterling — who distanced herself from her spouse’s hate speech in a statement on Monday — was accused in a 2009 deposition related to a federal discrimination lawsuit against the Sterlings of saying that Latinos were filthy and that she had called one of her husband’s tenants a “black motherf—–.”

The accusations, made by tenant Darrell Rhodes, was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

The 2009 deposition of Rhodes, along with the Justice Department’s discrimination suit on behalf of other minority tenants, was resolved in a $2.765 million settlement that same year.

Rhodes said he was asking Shelly Sterling about a rent cut when she lashed out, the court documents showed.

“I asked her, ‘Would you reduce the rent?’” Rhodes recalled in the deposition. “And she said, ‘Who do you think you are, you black motherf—–?’

“The way in which she said motherf—– was more lower voiced, under her breath. She said black loud enough for me to hear, she said mother loud enough for me to hear. F— part was a little lower. I had to look at her lips to hear her say it. And I did.”

Maira Oliva, a building manager at a Sterling property, said there was no lip-reading needed when Shelly Sterling bad-mouthed minority tenants to her.

“She said, ‘Oh my God. This is so filthy. I can’t remodel my apartments the way I want because Latinos are so filthy,’” Oliva recalled in her 2009 deposition.

The Sterlings admitted no wrongdoing in their settlement of the lawsuits. But Donald Sterling was accused in court papers of making similar racist cracks about black and Hispanic tenants.

According to the suit, Sterling said he didn’t want to rent to Hispanics because “they smoke, drink and just hang around the building.”

As for black tenants, Sterling was charged with saying they “smell and attract vermin.”

SMH. Do you think it’s possible that Shelly has changed her tune since 2009? To his credit, Coach Rivers did say he didn’t think it would work for the team to be transferred to Sterling’s wife’s ownership either.

Do you agree?

Breaking News: NBA Commissioner Bans Racist Clippers Owner Donald Sterling From The NBA “For Life” & Fines Him $2.5 Million

NBA Commissioner Bans Donald Sterling From The NBA For Life

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver just held a press conference to announce how the NBA will handle racist L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling and it looks like they’ve done the right thing.

Check out a few excerpts from what the commissioner had to say during the press conference below:

“The views expressed by Mr. Sterling are deeply offensive and harmful. I am personally distraught that the views expressed by Mr. Sterling came from within an institution that has historically taken such a leadership role in matters of race relations.

To [the players] and pioneers of the game, in particular Magic Johnson, I apologize.

Effective immediately, I am banning Mr. Sterling from the NBA for life.

Mr. Sterling may not attend any NBA games or practices. He may not be present at any Clippers facilities and he will also be barred from attending NBA board meetings.

I am also fining Mr. Sterling 2.5 million, the maximum amount allowed under the NBA Constitution.”

This story is still developing, with the NBA Commissioner currently taking questions from the press, so we will bring you additional details on the NBA deciding to ban Donald Sterling as the become available.

What do you think of their decision thus far, Bossip fam?

Let’s discuss.

NBA lawyer David Anders and another NBA lawyer went to the law office of Mac Nehoray Monday afternoon. Stiviano was also there for the purpose of authenticating the audio.

We’re told there was NO doubt by anyone the recording is the real deal. The NBA lawyers heard the 15 minutes that have been made public, but not the remaining 45. And we’re told … based on conversations along with analysis … they’re satisfied about authenticity.

Neither Stiviano nor Anders had comments for our photog as they left the building.

TMZ Sports has also learned … people who have heard the entire recording say there is “NO DOUBT” Donald Sterling KNEW he was being recorded.

For Us By Us: Ex-Baller Larry Johnson Says NBA Players Should Form An All-Black Basketball League With Only Black Owners

Larry Johnson

The NBBA?

Larry Johnson Says NBA Players Should Form Black Owned Basketball League

Via NYPost

Knicks executive and former player Larry Johnson had a decidedly different but still strong reaction to the racially insensitive remarks Clippers owner Donald Sterling is alleged to have made.

On Saturday night, Johnson tweeted: “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!’’

The initial indication was Johnson was calling for an all-African-American league complete with black ownership. It wasn’t the first time Johnson, who is black, concerned himself with the fact the NBA’s ownership is mostly white while its players are mostly black.

During the 1999 NBA Finals between the Knicks and Spurs, Johnson caused a stir by saying: “We’ve got a lot of rebellious slaves on this [Knicks] team.”

When asked at the time why he referred to his teammates as slaves, Johnson said: “I’ve got to explain that to you? We don’t go with the mainstream.’’

Johnson was hired by the Knicks two years ago and serves many roles as a basketball and business operations representative. It’s unclear what his role will be under new team president Phil Jackson.

Forming a league requires a whole lot of resources. Do you think “Grandmama’s” idea is practical?

Domestic Drama: Ray Rice Postpones Wedding Reception With Baby Mama After Indicted For Knocking Her Out!

In shady matrimony-dom news

Ray Rice Postpones Wedding Reception With Baby Mama After Beating Her

Via TMZ reports:

Ray Rice might have to wait a couple of months before the wedding gifts start to roll in — because TMZ Sports has learned the newly married NFL star isn’t having a wedding reception until June.

As we previously reported, the Baltimore Ravens running back traded “I Dos” with longtime girlfriend Janay Palmer last week in a quiet private ceremony.

Now, we know the couple is planning to celebrate the occasion with a standard reception — but it won’t go down for another couple of months. The reason for the delay is unclear.

Rice is still facing assault charges for allegedly attacking Palmer at an Atlantic City casino back in February … though Ray vehemently denies the charges and his attorney Michael Diamondstein has insisted the couple is “happy” and getting counseling.

What a great way to start a marriage?

Since the assault happened in a casino, chances are that the only evidence needed will be the tape of the alleged punch that knocked her out. The video reportedly exists, and it will go a long way toward proving beyond a reasonable doubt that assault was committed, regardless of whether his new wife takes the stand.

Poor Thang: Gay Baller Jason Collins Says He’s Been The Target Of Homosexual Hate Since Joining The Nets

ASAP and Jason Collins

Jason Collins says he’s been harassed for being gay since joining the Brooklyn Nets…

Gay Player Jason Collins Says He’s Been Bullied Since Joining The Nets

Jason Collins has had a relatively quiet tenure since joining the Nets on Feb. 23, and that’s been viewed by almost everyone as a huge positive.

Via NBC Sports:

Collins became the NBA’s first openly gay active player once he inked consecutive 10-day contracts with Brooklyn, before being signed later to a deal that would have him on the roster to finish out the season.

It has been all business ever since, at least where the media has been concerned, as well as with Collins and his teammates. But he hasn’t gone unscathed in terms of at least one other player in the league attempting to use Collins’ openness against him.

From Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

From the moment he embarked down this trailblazing path, Jason Collins has said that he’d turn the other cheek when faced with ignorance, accepting that he can’t control the words and actions of idiots.

He was tested once during his first month with the Brooklyn Nets, although the NBA’s first openly gay player understandably doesn’t want to give attention to the “knucklehead” or his comments. … And Collins handled the negativity like he anticipated – with a silent disregard.

“One player, one knucklehead from another team,” Collins said in an interview with the Daily News. “He’s a knucklehead. So I just let it go. Again, that goes back to controlling what you can control. That’s how I conduct myself – just being professional.”

While Collins has been largely accepted without incident (as he absolutely should be), it honestly would have been more surprising had he not yet experienced a single incident like this.

The NBA is made up of players from widely divergent backgrounds, not to mention age groups that span from the teens to the late 30s. The fact that someone “went there” with Collins on the court is disgusting to be sure, but sadly, it couldn’t have possibly been completely unexpected.

How do you think Jason should handle the homosexual hate??

Show & Prove: Can Losin’ Azz Olympian Lolo Jones Finally Win A Medal On The Women’s Bobsledding Team?

LoLo Jones

Maybe now Lolo can prove she’s not a huge Olympic failure.

Lolo Jones Adds Excitement To U.S. Women’s Bobsled Team

She couldn’t get it poppin’ as a track and field star. If she can’t get the medal as a bobsled athlete, well, UPS is hiring…

According to The Gazette:

Lolo Jones wanted to become a push athlete in Olympic bobsled competition.

She knew her ambition would require a big dose of courage. It’s no secret bobsledding can be perilous.

She also knew her ambition would require a more enormous version of Lolo.

Jones had made her name as a slim 130-pound world-class hurdler. She needed to add 30 pounds, at least, to prosper as a pusher.

“I can eat anything,” Jones said late in 2013 as she looked back on her successful attempt to add weight to her frame. “And it’s awesome.”

Jones is the most famous of the athletes who have traveled from other sports to bobsled competition. She is joined on the Olympic team by Lauryn Williams, a gold medal Olympic sprinter, and Aja Evans, who competed in track at Illinois.

On the men’s team, Curt Tomasevicz traveled to the bobsled Olympic team from football. He was raised in Shelby, Neb., on land almost as flat as a pool table. He still found his way, with a stop at Nebraska’s football team, to this mountain sport and lives and trains in Colorado Springs.

“They ask me if bobsledding is fun,” Tomasevicz said, “and I don’t think I could describe bobsledding as fun with freezing temperatures and spandex and wearing only a helmet as protection, it’s not necessarily fun.”

Jones disagrees.

She’s been surprised by the sheer joy of bobsledding. She once spent her days trying to run as fast as she could while clearing hurdles, but has found thrills in her role as, borrowing his words, “the engine” of a bobsled race team.

“Once you get use to the g-force and how it knocks you around, it’s really quite fun,” she said.

Do you think Lolo can get a gold Olympic medal as a bobsled athlete?

Drugs Are Good M’Kay: NFL Commissioner Open To Medical Marijuana Use For All Football Players

mag_jc_leaffb_576

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is leaving the door open on medical marijuana use for pro football players.

NFL Commissioner Open To Medical Marijuana Use For Players

Via Fox News reports:

Although it’s been legal to buy and use marijuana in Colorado since Jan. 1, smoking marijuana is still illegal under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement.

When asked if a player might ever be allowed to use medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, Goodell told ESPN.com he could envision a time when players use medical marijuana in states where it’s legal.

“I don’t know what’s going to develop as far as the next opportunity for medicine to evolve and to help either deal with pain or help deal with injuries, but we will continue to support the evolution of medicine,” he said.

He said he could envision a time when players use medical marijuana in states where it’s legal.

His remarks were the first comments in the league about marijuana since 2012, when Washington and Colorado voted to legalize pot.

Goodell also addressed the Jonathan Martin bullying case, concussions in the game and whether the NFL was ready for an openly gay player.

On the latter, he said: “Yes. There may be, I don’t know, but the answer to that is yes.”

Last week, Goodell also said he hasn’t ruled out a Super Bowl taking place overseas.

“I want to grow the game,” he told the New York Post.

Goodell said that London would get a Super Bowl only if it had an NFL franchise.

What The Hell? Virginia Community In Uproar After Local Cemetery Is Dug Up And Replaced With Football Field

Random ricdiculousness…

Virginia Cemetery Dug Up And Replaced With Football Field

Residents in one Virginia community are rightfully outraged as a local high school is reportedly moving forward with plans to dig up a cemetery to make way for a new football field.

via Fox News

A northern Virginia school district has been criticized for following through with plans to turn an unruly swath of land identified as a gravesite into a high school football field.

“It’s not even the high school,” Carolyn Lynn, a genealogist from Manassas, Va., told The Washington Post. “And that kind of adds insult to injury.”

At the beginning of the school year, Prince William County high schools announced it would move the cemetery, which they just learned about over the summer, the report said. The report said contractors at the location found evidence of the cemetery in 2008, but for “unknown reasons” did not alert anyone in the school system for years. Some of the graves date back to the 1860s.

“It’s very upsetting. These were people who lived there, farmed there, had children….that expected to be there forever.”
- Carolyn Lynn, a genealogist from Manassas

Philip B. Kavits, a school spokesman, told the paper that the school division cannot afford to go through a redesign. Work at the cemetery had already started when researchers traced the land to a farm occupied by William Lynn and his wife in the mid-1800s. The graves likely belong to the family. Lynn, the genealogist, believes she is related to the cemetery’s occupants, the report said.

The report said despite complaints, the dig at the site was completed five days later. Workers reportedly found 11 graves and decayed bones and other artifacts.

How in the world was this even able to take place? This just sounds outrageous…

Middle School Football Coach Fired For Planning Team Trip To Hooters

via Fox News

A Portland, Ore.-area middle school football coach who said he was willing to lose his job rather than back down from plans for a team party at Hooters has lost his job.

The athletic director for the Corbett School District, Jean-Paul Soulagnet, sent a letter to parents Monday night telling them the end-of-season awards party at Hooters was no longer a Corbett Middle School event.

KGW reports the athletic director also fired coach Randy Burbach for refusing to choose a more appropriate location.

Making It Rain On These Hoes: Serena WIlliams Beat Victoria Azarenka For Second Straight U.S. Open Championship Victory!!!

Serena Williams Wins 2013 US Open Championship

Serena is a beast!!!

According to CBS News:

Fussing with her skirt and flubbing her shots, Serena Williams was troubled in the U.S. Open final by the swirling air and the strong play of Victoria Azarenka. After one miss, Williams declared, “I can’t play in this wind.” After blowing a big second-set lead, Williams chucked her racket toward the sideline, and it bounced back onto the court. In the end, Williams pulled herself together, as she usually does when it matters the most. Facing her first test of the past two weeks, the No. 1-seeded Williams overcame No. 2 Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-1 on Sunday for a fifth championship at Flushing Meadows and second in a row.

“As impressive as her final set was, the bigger achievement may have been handling both her nerves as well as the swirling winds throughout Arthur Ashe Stadium,” writes CBS Sports’ Mike Singer. Williams, who turns 32 in 2-and-a-half weeks, raised her Grand Slam singles title count to 17, the sixth-most in history and one shy of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. Williams collected a $3.6 million prize, including a $1 million bonus for producing the best results during the North American summer hard-court circuit leading up to the U.S. Open. Helped by nine aces, one at 126 mph, Williams improved to 67-4 with a career-best nine titles in 2013. Since a first-round exit at the 2012 French Open, Williams is 98-5 with 14 titles, winning four of the past six Grand Slam tournaments.

But this one did not come easily, even though it appeared to be nearly over when Williams went ahead by two breaks at 4-1 in the second set. Williams served for the match at 5-4 and 6-5 — only to have the gutsy Azarenka break each time. This was a rematch of last year’s final, also won by Williams in three sets, and two-time Australian Open champion Azarenka provided another challenge with her big swings off both wings. Williams wound up holding there with a 104 mph ace, part of what seemed to be a match-altering stretch. She won five consecutive games and 16 of 18 points to take the first set and go up a break in the second.

Her lead grew to 4-1 in the second set, before Azarenka made things competitive again. Azarenka is responsible for two of Williams’ four losses this season. And entering Sunday, Azarenka was 31-1 on hard courts this season, and she showed why for portions of the final, playing far better than she had in her preceding six matches in New York. But she simply could not keep pace with Williams, who eventually adjusted to her opponent and the wind that topped 15 mph. Williams put aside her issues to finish with a 36-17 edge in winners.

The first time Williams served for the championship, at 5-4, Azarenka hit a cross-court forehand winner for break point, then forced a backhand long. Williams came right back to break for a 6-5 edge. But on her second chance to serve it out, she double-faulted to get broken for the fourth time Sunday.

Congrats, Serena!!!!!

Kush Before Kick Off? New Colorado Billboard Encourages NFL Players To Stop Getting Slizzard And Start Piff-Puffin’

Do you agree?

Colorado Billboard Encourages NFL Players To Smoke Kush

via Huffington Post

A billboard calling out the NFL to stop punishing players for [kush] use has popped up outside Sports Authority Field at Mile High just in time for the Broncos-Ravens NFL season opener.

The 48-foot-wide billboard–in Broncos colors, no less–produced by [kush] policy reform group the M*rij*ana Policy Project reads, “Stop driving players to drink! A safer choice is now legal (here).”

Colorado and Washington voters approved ballot measures last November which legalized recreational [kush] for adults in each state and the Department of Justice recently announced that it will let the new laws go into effect in both states.

“For years, the NFL has been punishing players for using [kush] despite the fact that it is far less harmful than alcohol, a substance widely embraced by the league,” said Mason Tvert, director of communications for the M*rij*ana Policy Project who was a key figure in the legalization effort in Colorado.

“The league would never punish a player simply for having a couple beers, so why does it penalize them for using a substance that is less toxic, less addictive, and less likely to contribute to violence.”

MPP also launched a Change.org petition aimed at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, calling on the NFL to change its [kush] policy. At the time of publishing, the petition already had nearly 1,500 signees.

Do you think NFL players should be allowed to blow trees during the season if it’s legalized in their state?

Bump, Bump, Bump: Woman Files Lawsuit After Getting Herpes From Used Tube Of Rihanna’s “RiRi Woo” MAC Lipstick

Woman Files Lawsuit Against MAC After Contracting Herpes From Used Rihanna Lipstick

A New York woman who says she contracted herpes while visiting a MAC cosmetics store in Harlem where an employee applied a used tube of Rihanna’s “RiRi Woo” lipstick to her lips is taking the popular cosmetics company to court.

via NY Daily News

A Harlem woman claims in a lawsuit that she got herpes at a Rihanna concert in Brooklyn from lipstick the singer endorsed.

Starkeema Greenidge, 28, alleges she contracted the virus when a representative of MAC Cosmetics applied a used tube of RiRi Woo to her smackers.

“I wasn’t able to work for two weeks. It cost me a lot of money,” Greenidge, a waitress, told the Daily News on Wednesday.

She said she slapped MAC with the suit in Manhattan Supreme Court in hopes of forcing the company to be more sanitary in the future.

Greenidge also said the company should train its employees to use disposable tubes or swabs to apply the lipstick.

Sounds like this woman is about to making it rain RiRi Woo money very soon.

Ho Sit Down: O.J. Simpson Wants to Go On A College Speaking Tour If He Is Released From Jail

o.j.

O.J., what can college students possibly learn from you? How to kill a b**** 101? How to go to jail for stealing your own ish?

O.J. Simpson Wants To Go On Tour If Released From Jail

According to TMZ

OJ Simpson is already planning life after jail — despite the fact that his conviction has yet to be overturned — and priority numero uno: a massive college speaking tour to line his pockets.

Simpson is gunning for a retrial in his 2007 armed robbery case, for which he’s currently serving out a 33-year-sentence. If a new trial happens, and his conviction is overturned, Simpson’s time behind bars could be drastically reduced.

With high hopes of getting out soon, Simpson reportedly told a source close to The NY Post that he plans to go on a nationwide college tour to make some cold, hard cash speaking about the Nicole Brown murder case.

OJ told the source, “I’m excited. I mean, they teach the ‘Trial of the Century’ in school, so who better to talk about it than me?”

According to the report, Simpson could make up to $1,000 per speech.

Would you want O.J. teaching your kids?

Here Comes Baby: Reggie Bush’s Kimmy Fakes Gives Birth To Beautiful Baby Girl

Parents to be Reggie Bush and Lilit Avagyan arrive at Bootsy Bellows hand-in-hand. Reggie and Lilit matched as they both wore black and white to the club.

Congratz Reggie.

Reggie Bush Becomes A Dad

According to US Magazine

Reggie Bush is a dad! The 28-year-old NFL player welcomed his first child with fiancee Lilit Avagyan on Monday, May 6.

“Lilit gave birth to a beautiful baby girl,” her rep tells Us Weekly. The tot weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces.

The Detroit Lions running back and the 25-year-old dancer have been dating for about a year and a half. Bush confirmed Avagyan was pregnant in October 2012 on Florida’s Paul and Young Ron Morning Show. “I have a little one on the way,” he said. “We’re pretty excited!”

Bush famously dated Kim Kardashian on-and-off for several years before calling it quits for good in March 2010. The 32-year-old reality starlet is also expecting her first child in July with boyfriend Kanye West.

In an Apr. 15 blog post on the Detroit Lions’ website, Bush opened up about his thoughts on becoming first-time parents with his Armenian girlfriend. “I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time,” he shared. “It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.”

Bush also shared his plans to travel back and forth between his family in L.A. and work in Michigan. “The baby will be in L.A. Well, [Avagyan] is going to be in L.A. because her family lives 15-20 minutes away from us,” he explained. “So she’s going to need that support system while I’m here for a few days out of each week. Then I’ll be home . . . I’m going to rack up a lot of sky miles, I know that.”

Kim is about to pop out a baby and Reggie’s look-a-like gives birth to one. Interesting.
