    Bow Wow proposes?

    Could Bow Wow be ready to settle down with on-again-off-again boo, Angela Simmons? MediaTakeOut.com reports that a well-known celebrity told them Bow Wow has asked Angela to marry him, and she said yes.

    Supposedly the couple is waiting to make the big announcement because they want cameras to catch the whole thing. 

    Sapping even more romance from the moment are claims from the source that Bow Wow is only marrying Angela for her money. Allegedly, the rapper thinks that wedding a wealthy girl will help him solve some of his money problems, which includes an IRS debt of $500,000.

    Neither Bow Wow nor Angela have commented on the gossip at this time.

    Deion Sanders disputes Pilar’s attack story

    Deion Sanders is trying to clear up reports that an out-of-control woman injured his estranged wife Pilar.

    “My AUNT Laura Jones was at my house fixing my phone system and was attacked. We have proof,” he tweeted.

    On Tuesday, Pilar called the police after Laura allegedly threw something at her, hitting her in the eye, TMZ reports.

    “Pilar was taken to the hospital emergency room as a result of the injuries she sustained,” Pilar’s lawyer reported.

    According to Pilar, Deion, who she still lives with, did nothing to restrain Laura and protect Pilar.

    "This is an opportunity for Deion to use his ‘Century-21 celebrity status’ to set an example as to how to lovingly care for his wife and children during divorce proceedings," her lawyer said.

    Deion said: “Enough is Enough we’re so tired and exhausted from the lies and foolishness. My kids are being affected weekly with these false allegations.”

    Kesha Nichols love Royce Reed

    It doesn’t hurt to have an ally on VH1’s hit “Basketball Wives,” and it seems newcomer Kesha Nichols has found one in returning cast member Royce Reed.

    “We have a lot in common. We both don’t take life too seriously. We don’t look for confrontation and we like to get out to do things. We both dance. We cheer. We both ran track. We love to rollerblade. We’re more active than the other girls, and we can be silly together,” Kesha told Vibe Vixen.

    As far as the other girls, she said, “I’m very different from them and my reactions are different than the other girls and I’ve never been in my life around a group of people like this. These ladies have short fuses and it’s a learning process for me every single day.”

    While many of his friends and fans doubted that “Soul Train” creator Don Cornelius could have possible killed himself, the Los Angeles coroner’s office has determined that is the official cause of death.

    Last week, Don was found in his home dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

    While it’s been determined that Don, 74, did pull the trigger and ended his own life, it’s still unclear whether medications in his system may have contributed to his death.

    Investigators are still awaiting the results of toxicology tests, the Associated Press reports.
