Holly Robinson Peete, Vivica A. Fox, Loretta Devine and Stevie Wonder were among those who helped celebrate the life of Michael Clarke Duncan during a nearly four-hour memorial service on September 10 marked by heartfelt speeches, rousing gospel performances and photos of the always – smiling star, reports the Associated Press. Former reality star Omarosa Manigault, who was Duncan’s fiancee’, also attended along with Duncan’s mother, sister and nephews. Said Omarosa: “He was the love of my life, he is the love of my life. I’m going to miss him so much.” A very emotional Jay Leno told the crowd: “In this cynical world of Hollywood, here was a guy who was happy for every job he got. Just to see such a pure heart and pure kindness… and to see him taken so early, there really are no sadder words than what might have been.”


She may have recently clashed with her Aunts Rebbie and Janet, but Paris Jackson loves her Aunt LaToya. The daughter of Michael Jackson told Glamour Magazine that she wants to be an actress. Says Paris: “A lot of people don’t want me to do it… but my Aunt LaToya believes in me. She really does encourage; it’s just awesome of her.” Meanwhile, Janet was spotted recently at the Dylan’s Candy Bar Los Angeles opening at Original Farmers Market.


Rihanna has been texting Chris Brown off the hook since their kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards. A source tells that Rihanna doesn’t care what people think of her relationship with Chris! Says a source: “I know she wants to see the boy and she’s not even trippin’ on what the media thinks about it either.”


Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson desperately wants to stay married to his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada, so much so that he’s refusing to sign any divorce papers. Sources close to Chad tell TMZ he won’t sign the documents or partake in any divorce proceedings because he doesn’t want to get a divorce. Sources say Chad still believes he can win Evelyn back. However, under Florida law, the divorce can still be finalized with a judge’s approval.


Don’t ask Ramona Singer to take a picture with you. The “Real Housewives of New York” diva practically bit off Make-up Artist to the Stars Ayanna Bynum’s head when the statuesque beauty asked Singer for a photo at September 9th’s The Daily Styles Sessions on the rooftop of the Empire Hotel in New York City. Singer barked at Bynum: “I’m not doing that,” and continued posing for solo photos at the Tic-Tac display.
