    Cupid misfires on Paula Abdul

    Paula Abdul had a rough Valentine’s Day, according to recent reports. Apparently the former “American Idol” judge called 911 after a date went a little South.

    In the 911 call, obtained by TMZ, Paula can be heard screaming, “I wanna go, and he won’t let me!” while crying.

    However, the incident didn’t escalate much further.

    Apparently, Paula’s driver got the message and agreed to take her where she wanted to go. She then ended the call with the emergency operator.

    According to her publicist, the issue between the two has since been resolved.

    NeNe offers TMI?

    NeNe Leakes, of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame, talked sex toys, interracial dating and her career in a recent interview with Rolling Out magazine.

    “I’m not an angry Black woman. I’m actually a cool-a$$ Black woman,” she said. “I want to travel the world and work on my career. Mr. Right, for me, he would have to be very confident of who he is. He needs to stay in his lane and not be over here in mine. I’ve never dated a White boy, but I’ve had a couple of them to approach me. They’re very interesting. I’ll be open to go on a date with one of them, but I really like Black guys,” she said.

    NeNe’s latest reality gig starts this Sunday. She’s one of the contestants on the newest season of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and has definitely roused curiosity about the show by fueling a feud between her and co-star Star Jones.

    Chris Brown goes blond

    Chris Brown’s new blond look has been getting a lot of attention. Of course, he’s not the only music artist to bleach his hair, but he’s one of the more masculine in the group that includes Rihanna, Beyoncé, Christina Milian, Keri Hilson and Sisqo.

    Chris’s hair has gotten mixed reactions from Twitter users.

    One posted, “You know I like Chris Brown with his hair blonde. At first I was kind of like WTF but now I love it. It suits him.”

    Another decided to offer some unconditional love, “I love chris brown wiv or wiv out the blonde hair…”
