Reports of Whitney and Bobby's divorce shocked the entire entertainment industry. While many suspected trouble in the marriage, few believed that the couple would actually call it quits. But Atlanta Gossip, (AG) has learned that Whitney may have moved on from the relationship a long time ago. We've discovered that for months now, the golden-voiced diva has been cozying up with a popular Atlanta minister, Bishop Eddie L. Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia.
In an exclusive interview, we spoke with a woman who claims that Whitney and the nationally renowned minister have been carrying on a "close private relationship." The source told Atlanta Gossip that the two met while Whitney was battling her drug addiction. According to the source, the minister served as a spiritual counselor to Houston. She explained, "at first [the minister] was just helping Whitney with her addiction, then the next thing you know they're going on weekend 'retreats' together."
But there's a big problem with Whitney's new "relationship" - the pastor is currently married with children. Our tipster, who is also a close friend of the minister's wife, told us, "what Whitney is doing is just plain wrong, that man has a family." And she offers a stern warning, "I'm not accusing anyone of anything yet, but [the minister's wife] is not just going to sit back and let Whitney steal her man ... if stuff needs to get ugly, it will."

Pastor Marty Baker preaches that the Bible is the eternal and inviolate word of God. On other church matters, he's willing to change with the times.
Jeans are welcome at Stevens Creek Community Church, the 1,100-member evangelical congregation Baker founded 19 years ago. Sermons are available as podcasts, and the electric house band has been known to cover Aerosmith's "Dream On." A recent men's fellowship breakfast was devoted to discussing the spiritual wages of lunching at Hooters.
It is a bid for relevance in a nation charmed by pop culture and consumerism, and it is not an uncommon one. But Baker has waded further into the 21st century than most fishers of American souls, as evidenced one Wednesday night when churchgoer Josh Marshall stepped up to a curious machine in the church lobby.
It was one of Stevens Creek's three "Giving Kiosks": a sleek black pedestal topped with a computer screen, numeric keypad and magnetic-strip reader. Prompted by the on-screen instructions, Marshall performed a ritual more common in quickie marts than a house of God: He pulled out a bank card, swiped it and punched in some numbers.
The machine spat out a receipt. Marshall's $400 donation was routed to church coffers before he had found his seat for evening worship.
"I paid for gas today with a card, and got lunch with one," said Marshall, 30. "This is really no different." (continue)

"Yes, I am dating and I'm having fun," she says with a smile, while sending an e-mail on her BlackBerry. "I met someone recently [who] I kind of like, but it's too soon to tell. You know how that is!"

Since there are so many songs dedicated to random shit, why not have one for the jump off chicks on Myspace? I've already booked studio time this weekend to record a song about different styles of maxi pads, or as my Granny would say sanitary napkins. You like the flexi-wings? Yup! You like the overnights? Yup! You like the scented ones? Yup! You like four wall protection? Yup!
All I need is a "tight beat" and I'll guaran-damn-tee you I would have the 106 & Park generation leaning and snapping their fingers. Thanks Shonna for the video!
One more thing, why does this nigga have a shirt with "Rat Poison" written across it? Is that's what's poppin' in the streets (apparently along with fanny packs) now?
