I hear that all of Philadelphia was abuzz with the news that five-time Grammy winner Yolanda Adams took her popular Health and Wellness Tour to the City of Brotherly Love last weekend, thanks to Novartis Pharmaceuticals. The tour features the Novartis hypertension awareness campaign, “Believe in Healthy BP” which Yolanda is national spokesperson for. Now with 75 million Americans and an estimated 40 percent of African Americans having high blood pressure this is definitely a timely initiative. The tour is making stops across the country all summer long including Philly last weekend and then Atlanta, Indianapolis, Dallas and Los Angeles. For more info go to BelieveinHealthyBP.com.

 

Fantasia recently walked across the biggest stage of her life in Charlotte, North Carolina. The former “American Idol” winner accepted an honorary degree after graduating from Andrews High School. The drop-out also took pictures with her fans at the ceremony. Fanny quit high school in the ninth grade after she was reportedly harrassed by a classmate. At 16 years old, she gave birth to her only child. Congratulations!.

 

Tongues are wagging that President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a backyard barbecue recently on the south lawn of the White House. The annual picnic was held for members of congress and their families, to congratulate them on the work they’ve done this year. The First Family served Chicago-style hot dogs and salmon from a fire pit. In 2009, President Obama made the picnic an Hawaiian Luau in honor of his home state.

 

According to SandraRose.com, Janet Jackson made a surprise appearance at the Gold Room in Atlanta for Jermaine Dupri‘s Hip Hop Honoree party. Sources say Janet and J.D. are still an item, but she doesn’t want anyone to know. So, where does that leave things with the millionaire oil mogul she’s supposedly dating? Anyway, Janet showed up at the club 30 minutes prior to his arrival to surprise Jermaine with her entourage, which included her dancers. Jan partied in the VIP room for an hour before leaving.

 

Trying to taunt Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom, Tauntr.com passed out 5,000 Khloe Kardashian masks outside TD Garden in Boston last Tuesday at Game 3 of the NBA finals. The masks resembled Jessica Simpson ones that hecklers wore to get a rise out of Tony Romo at past Dallas Cowboy games. The masks didn’t work. The Lakers beat the Celtics 91-84. The series is now 2-2.
