Heavy D..Cause Of Death Revealed

Details in the death of rapper Heavy D. have finally been released.

Heavy D died from a pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis ... and a long flight back to L.A. from a Michael Jackson memorial concert may have been a contributing factor.

A pulmonary embolism is a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs -- most often caused by blood clots which travel in from other parts of he body. In Heavy's case, the clot was formed in his legs.

Days before Heavy died, he was on a flight back from Europe, after performing at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales.

Officials from the L.A. County Coroner's Office say Heavy also suffered from heart disease, which could have been a contributing factor in his death.

The Coroner's Office has classified the death as "natural."

As TMZ first reported, Heavy died on November 9, 2011. He was 44-years-old.

Deep leg vein thrombosis is often associated with long plane flights, in which a clot can form due to prolonged immobility.

Late...But Still Relevant! Vanessa Bryant Files For Divorce

I can only imagine that this above picture shows Kobe's facially expression for the past few days.  After 10 years of marriage, Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences."  According to some of the other "basketball wives", Kobe has still been up to his cheating ways and that's what caused her to finally leave.

And our sources say ... Kobe "desperately" wants to win Vanessa back and will do "whatever it takes" to save their 10 1/2 year marriage.

According to the legal docs, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their 2 daughters -- 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Gianna -- but Vanessa is asking that Kobe get visitation rights, which means she wants the kids in her care most of the time.

We've learned the couple has NO PRENUP, so 29-year-old Vanessa is entitled to half of the empire Kobe built over the last decade.

She's also requesting spousal support ... which is typical in divorce cases. Kobe, who filed his response to the divorce minutes after Vanessa filed her petition, says he will pay her spousal support.

According to the docs, Vanessa is being repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser and attorney Samantha Klein. Wasser reps oodles of celebs, including Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Maria Shriver and Kim Kardashian.

Wowwwwwwwww, no prenup? LMAO!! Sorry, I know divorce isn't funny, but seriously Kobe.  NO PRENUP?  I'm sure Vanessa is gonna party like no other bringing in 2012.  She's gonna have a prosperous year ahead.

Matrix & Terminator Movies Original Creator Wins $2.5 BILLION Lawsuit

All I can say is WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! Today is my first time hearing of this case.  The Hip Hop Consultant  explained how Sophia Stewart finally won her lawsuit after six years.  Check MORE DISH to read more.

After a six year dispute, prolific writer and profound spiritualist, Sophia Stewart has received justice for copyright infringement and racketeering and will finally recover damages from the films, The Matrix I, II and III, as well as The Terminator and its sequels. Yes, you heard that correctly – the entire Matrix & Terminator franchises, and her suspected pay off is expected to be the highest in history – an estimated 2.5 billion.

Her case is a true landmark, and far too uncommon as countless creatives are exploited by the snake-like dealings of the movie industry. Here’s a recap of her triumphant journey by way of George2.0:

“Stewart filed her case in 1999, after viewing the Matrix, which she felt had been based on her manuscript, ‘The Third Eye,’ copyrighted in 1981. In the mid-eighties Stewart had submitted her manuscript to an ad placed by the Wachowski Brothers, requesting new sci-fi works.

According to court documentation, an FBI investigation discovered that more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original film, in an attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement. The investigation also stated that ‘credible witnesses employed at Warner Brothers came forward, claiming that the executives and lawyers had full knowledge that the work in question did not belong to the Wachowski Brothers.’ These witnesses claimed to have seen Stewart’s original work and that it had been ‘often used during preparation of the motion pictures.’ The defendants tried, on several occasions, to have Stewart’s case dismissed, without success.

Stewart has confronted skepticism on all sides, much of which comes from Matrix fans, who are strangely loyal to the Wachowski Brothers. One on-line forum, entitled Matrix Explained has an entire section devoted to Stewart. Some who have researched her history and writings are open to her story.”

So really?  They thought they were just going to steal this woman's story and get away with it? SMH!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad she didn't give up on this and got what's rightfully hers!!

*UPDATE*  I found this story on a few different websites.  Some of them stated that this is a hoax (and one of my readers also pointed it out, preciate that) .  I'll wait to see it on E! News before I totally believe it, LOL.

Toni Braxton Visits Chelsea Lately

Toni looks good!! Check out this video as she tells Chelsea the differences in dating a black man and a white man.

FUNNY, LOL.  I'm glad she said something about the skin feeling different because that's something I always wondered about. I mean, it just LOOKS like it would feel different.  I'm not going to go all into detail about what I think the biggest difference would be (no it's not size).  I remember talking to a white homeboy of mine and telling him my theory.  He was so shocked that he turned fire red in the face,   ROFLMAO!! I will say that he told me I was wrong and that was GREAT to hear.  Maybe I'll "play in the snow" one day and then I can tell y'all all about it. :)

T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle (Episodes 1 & 2)

Last night was the premiere of Tip and Tiny's reality show on Vh1, The Family Hustle.  I absolutely LOVED the show and from most of the tweets and FB status updates I saw, most of the other viewers did also.  Of course you had those that spoke negatively of The King and his Queen, but like he said "you can hate if you want, but you're wasting ya time."  The relationship that these two have is simply beautiful.  Check out episode one below.

Check MORE DISH for the second episode.

Whewwwwwwwwwwwwww honey, that Tip is a MANE!!! I just love the show and I love seeing them together.  Tip seems to be a great father and an awesome husband. Behind every great man is a great woman and Tiny is definitely that. She has been down with him through all of his ups and downs. Lot's of people (mostly women) were saying that Tip is too controlling.  Personally, I don't think he's controlling, I think he's a REAL MAN!! A man is supposed to lead and women are supposed to follow.  When I find a male that knows how to be a MAN and lead properly, I have NO PROBLEM FOLLOWING!! When they were on the Wendy Williams Show and he tapped Tiny and told her to "pause", I thought that was the sexiest thing ever LOL. I will most definitely be posted in front of my television EVERY Monday to watch their show.  Will you?

World AIDS DAY... Hydeia Broadbent Discusses Dating With HIV/AIDS

Today is World AIDS Day, a day to honor those living with HIV/AIDS and to celebrate the many medical breakthroughs discovered.  While it's a blessing that this illness is no longer a death sentence, it's extremely important that we know the ways to prevent it.  I know it's easy to say use condoms and IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO DO SO.  But, I think the most important thing to do is to consistently be tested so that you know your status. Just a few weeks ago I was speaking with a grown man (in his 30s) that stated he had never been tested because he was "scared."  REALLY?  I won't lie, getting tested is one of  the scariest things ever.  I don't care who you are, how many condoms you've used or how many partners you've had.  If you're not a virgin, THAT SH*T IS SCARY (please also be aware that this is NOT a disease of promiscuity)!! So,  KNOW YOUR STATUS and WRAP IT UP!!

Anywho, last week a FB friend of mine asked her friends this queston "You're dating a person for 3 months, everything was going great... he/she finally tells you that he/she is HIV positive. What would you do?"  I was SHOCKED at some of the responses.  Some people actually said they would try to work through it, but of course, MOST people said they would run.  One person even said that a family member of hers was with a man for 15 years and 3 years into their relationship they found out he was HIV positive.  In 3 years she had not contracted the disease, and they even had a child together during that time. She stayed with him another 12 years after the fact and never contracted HIV (that REALLY confused me). Whatever your answer to this question would be, it wouldn't be an easy one. 

 Hydeia Broadbent is a 27 year old HIV positive activist that was born with the disease.  She spoke with Loop21 about dating with HIV, check MORE DISH to read that interview.

Loop 21: What do you think has improved in terms of people’s understanding of and attitudes towards HIV and AIDS?

Hydeia Broadbent: I believe the younger generation tends to be de-sensitized, because they don't really know how huge an issue HIV/AIDS was in the 80s.

My 19-year-old sister [who is positive] has no problem dating guys her age. They are so open and not afraid, not like the guys my age who remember growing up afraid of getting AIDS. While that’s good for my sister's generation, it’s kind of scary because there isn't a sense of fear. I think my generation let them down because we forgot to inform and show them the true reality of AIDS.

Loop 21: If you're HIV-positive, when do you disclose your status? On the date? Before a date? As soon as you meet? As soon as you're interested?

Broadbent: I have a three-date rule. By the third date is when it's time to let someone know—but a lot of people don't start dating until after they have already had sex. You need to let your partner know before you take it that far.

If the person rejects you, then look at the bright side—at least you find out sooner then later what type of person they really were.

Loop 21: Once you’ve told someone you’re involved with (or hope to be involved with) that you are HIV-positive, what are the best questions he or she can ask to help things move forward?

Broadbent: The best question: "What are the ways I can stay negative?"

It’s important that people understand a person's first reaction may be fear. Make sure you have all the answers to their questions and be willing to take that person with you to a doctor’s visit so they can ask other things themselves. I made such a point of taking my ex-boyfriend with me that my doctor would ask where he was if he didn't see him by my side.

Loop 21: In all of your activist work and speaking engagements, what is the main thing people want to ask you about dating someone with HIV?

Broadbent: "Can you have sex or have children?" The answer is yes, I can. I have engaged in a healthy monogamous relationship. Currently, I choose to abstain. Due to advancements in medicine, a person, male or female, can get married and have children without passing HIV onto their loved ones.

Loop 21: We often hear that condom use is down…

Broadbent: A study recently said that condom use is up! However, I don't feel enough [teens or twenty-somethings] are practicing safe sex because not enough adults are talking to the youth about sex and how to stay safe.

Loop 21: What's the best way to encourage people to practice safe sex?

Broadbent: Be real with them about what can happen if they don't. Simply by Googling pictures of STD outbreaks can be a wake-up. Or let people know there is no cure for AIDS and not everyone has access to the life-saving medications they may need. If you don't have health insurance, it could cost almost $4000 a month for medications and that doesn't include the cost for doctor’s visits, blood tests or other medications you may need.

At the end of the day, safe sex or no sex is better then a positive test result. Please remember people are still dying—maybe not at an alarming rate, but some do lose their fight against AIDS.
