Wedding dress made of cake and frosting!

This white people are up to no good. Yesterday it was a wedding dress made of human wa o!

You know the trouble with wedding dresses? You can't really do anything with them after the wedding. But artist Lukka Sigurdardottir has come-up with a solution.

Since you can't wear your wedding-dress again, you might as well eat it, right? Lukka Sigurdardottir dress is made of cake. Checkered-cake that is, covered by a delicious frosting. Oh, an even better idea just came to me. How about you use this as a wedding cake as well, huh? Now we're talking serious savings and in tough financial times like these, you can never save enough.

Exclusive: What became of the famous love triangle of Seydou Soumare, Talia Hayward and Keagan Peterson after Big Brother Africa Stargame ended!

We all wonder what becomes of our favourite house mates after the show ends. Well I have scoops on what became of the famous love triangle of Seydou Soumare, Talia Hayward and Keagan Peterson.

After the show ended, Talia chose to go back to Seydou, so she dumped Keagan. Seydou forgave her and it was heavenly for a couple of months and BANG! Seydou served his revenge! He dumped Talia and is now expecting a child with a lady named Shiela pictured with him above in the third photo, they are said to be engaged. Talia has currently relocated to the United states, where she is cooling off with family members. I guess Talia lost out on both guys! She should have remained with Keagan.

The Big Brother StarGamers revealed via social media that they have split after they had seemingly rekindled their controversial romance. Below is the message they both posted to announce their break-up to fans.

Seydou had this to say:

"I do Understand that you are all very passionate people, Unfortunately it has come to my attention that some of you have been verbally abusing the ones I care about. Let me set the record straight, Seylia is an icon, and icons may live forever. Nevertheless Seydou Soumaré is a Human and as a Human life goes on and changes occur.

"I have posted in early November that me and T were cool and friends who cared about each other, however most of you chose to interpret the way it suited you. With all due respect, please stop living in the fantasy that my life revolves around Seylia. I don't owe anyone any satisfaction about my personal life, BBA days are long gone, this is the Real World and some aspects of my life must remain private all times. Despite any consideration I may have for my fans, Im the one who decides what to share and what not, it's my life and mine only.
"Me and S are expecting a baby, you don't have to like it but you shall respect it, that said you really have to take a chill pill and stop acting like babies, as most of you are grown ladies and mothers, no offence.

"You are entitled to go on speculating and assuming whatever you wish on how or when, but I'm affraid I don't have to answer any of your questions? This ain't an Interview.... Keep Spreading love and Unity, and remember, this is Seydou Soumaré's page. -- God Bless." 

Talia also had this to say:

"Dear Fam,

Seydou and I shared what we did and I have no regrets ever trying. I walk away with no uncertainties..proud that I faced my demons and fought to fix what was broken and in the process fixed mysef.

"He has found peace with Shiela, Peace that I never gave him and I believe with all my heart that he deserves it. See when you care about someone, you are happy for them inspite of yourself. Seylia will always remain an icon of love, triumph, forgiveness and friendship. Through adversity, not only are we given an opportunity to discover our inner strength, we are also given the gift of foresight so we can shine a light for others who go through the experience after us.

"I have found my peace because he has. I feel that we are often taken out of our comfort zones, pushed and shoved out of our nests, because if not, we would never know what we could do with our wings, we would never see the horizon and the sun setting on it.

"You have no idea how your advice and good will has made me strive to be a better person, uplifted me and helped me grow.. When I say family, it is beyond BBA, beyond stardom. It is a bond that I do not take lightly. I have been inspired by inspiring you all so thank you. -- Talia."

Tonto Dikeh's new single delayed.

Lovers of Tonto Dikeh's music, there is sad news! Her much awaited "CARRIAGE" will no longer be released tomorrow May 1st as scheduled.

The Poko madam twitted to announce it today.

Exclusive: The REAL reasons why Kate Henshaw's marriage of 12 years crashed!

The buzz about Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw and her better half of 12 years, Roderick James Nuttal's crashed marriage may have come and gone but one thing that is still shrouded in secrecy is the real reason behind the unexpected separation from one of the then best couples in the entertainment industry.

It would be recalled that there were serious of tales that trailed the break-up and one of them was that her hubby who's the Managing Director of Ledrop Nigeria Ltd (agents for Jack Daniels and Piper Hiedsieck) was romancing his secretary whose name was unknown, hence our curiosity to get to the root of the story.

After several investigations it was discovered that the said secretary is the main architect of the crashed union. Her name, we can exclusively disclose is Angela Gordon a twenty four years old pretty lady from the South South part of the country. Angela according to our source is a staff at Mr. Nuttal's company located at Ligali Ayorinde, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The duo according to the story kicked off a secret romance which was fuelled by Angela's mum three years ago while kate's marriage with her husband was still intact until the actress got wind of their affair.

The news of the romance I reliably learnt was brought to Kate's notice by one of the aggrieved staff of her husband when it was obvious Angela was towing the part of a second wife. The revelation I learnt resulted to a surprise visit to her hubby's office. "Aunty Kate stormed her husband's office on this fateful evening unannounced and was shocked to find her husband with Angela in an uncompromising position", "and I also learnt that she had initially lied that she was on a movie set in Lekki before paying the unwelcomed visit that ended their union", the source revealed.

I further gathered that serious argument ensued between the two ladies and Mr. Nuttal we learnt had to confirm his affair with his secretary to his wife who became perplexed immediately. The source also added that the height of it was when Kate's hubby gave her an option of either accepting things as it were or bow out of the marriage if she can't stand his relationship with Angela.

The outcome of the storm however was the official statement from the estranged couple months later announcing their separation without any concrete reason when it was obvious the marriage could not go on.

Angela now cruises a black Range Rover Sport and lives in a cozy 3-bedroom apartment around Lekki phase 1 courtesy of her white lover. The new madam of the house as she's popularly called by friends also allegedly miscarried a baby for Nuttal around late last year 2012 while the duo is also said to be flaunting their romance since the couple went their separate ways with Angela's mum being her backbone.

Goldie's family will sell off her belongings tomorrow, May 1st 2013.

The family of late Big Brother Africa housemate and Hip hop star, Goldie Harvey will auction all her belongings tomorrow, May 1st.

In a statement signed by the family representative, Deji Adetayo, it was disclosed that although the singer did not leave a will, she had had an agreement with her husband, Leonard Harvey to auction her remaining items.

Adetayo stated the proceeds from the sales would be donated to charity, adding that "There will be a garage sale at Goldie's house located at 30B, Ologunkutere Street, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos on May 1st, 2013."

Goldie, 31, died on the 14th of February 2013.

“I am 34, I’m black, and I am GAY” – American basketball player, Jason Collins comes out

NBA center Jason Collins has become the first male athlete in a major professional sport to come out as gay.

The 34-year-old, a free agent who has played with the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtics this past season, tells Sports Illustrated:

"I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, 'I'm different.' If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand."

Collins continues, "When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged. I thought I had to live a certain way. I thought I needed to marry a woman and raise kids with her. I kept telling myself the sky was red, but I always knew it was blue."

As to why he opted to address his sexuality now, Collins says that he was partly inspired by the Boston Marathon bombings, adding that "it takes an enormous amount of energy to guard such a big secret."

"I've endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie. I was certain that my world would fall apart if anyone knew," he writes. "And yet when I acknowledged my sexuality I felt whole for the first time. I still had the same sense of humor, I still had the same mannerisms and my friends still had my back."
