    Judge blocks suit against Albert Haynesworth

    A stripper’s lawsuit against Albert Haynesworth of the Washington Redskins has hit a snag.

    The New York Post reports that a judge told Silvia Mena that she can’t sue Albert, her ex-boyfriend, for emotional distress. She sought a $10 million payout, claiming he got her pregnant and then dumped her. 

    Silvia was trying to sue the NFL player in New York, but the judge said there were no grounds to try the case in that state. 

    "The case was dismissed on jurisdictional grounds because he has no ties to New York,” said Silvia’s lawyer Sal Strazzullo. “We will either seek federal jurisdiction or sue him in Tennessee. There is a separate paternity case filed with the Family Court in New York because the baby is here. Albert has been served with notice that he has to take a paternity test."



    BET Honors 2011 doesn’t disappoint

    The stars were out for the 4th annual BET Honors ceremony which taped Saturday, January 15 in Washington, D.C. Highlights of the event included a Teena Marie tribue from Marsha Ambrosius and a performance by the group Naturally 7, both of which brought standing ovations from the crowd. Yolanda Adams, Trey Songz, Guy, Keyshia Cole and Ne-Yo also paid tribute to the recipients with performances.

    This year’s honorees, who BET CEO Debra Lee referred to as "six extraordinary individuals," were Cicely Tyson, Iman, Herbie Hancock, Linda Johnson Rice, Lonnie Bunch and Jamie Foxx.

    Gabrielle Union, whose charm was only outshined by her 10 wardrobe changes, returned as the show’s host for the third consecutive time.

    Proceeds from the 2011 awards show, which airs Monday, February 21, go toward the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial.
