stevie and girlfriend

*Isn’t she lovely…

Stevie Wonder is now the father of nine kids after his girlfriend Tomeeka Robyn Bracy gave birth to a baby girl, a rep for the 64-year-old singer confirmed to Us Weekly.

The couple, who now share two children together, named the little one, Nia.

Wonder responded to the rumors that he was expanding his family during an interview with “The View” in early November.

“The truth is we’re going to have a wonderful daughter, born in December, (and her) name is going to be Nia, which is ‘purpose,'” he confirmed.

The rep told Us Weekly that “purpose” is “one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa.”

Wonder’s other children come from two previous marriages and two former girlfriends.

Mike Vick: Playing for Redskins Would Be ‘Dream Come True’

*Michael Vick has played in only 9 games for the 3-11 New York Jets this season, but the former Virginia Tech quarterback believes he could be a starter for another franchise next season

“I can be the face of any franchise,” he told Newsday. “Hopefully, there will be an opportunity for me in 2015. And that’s what I’m looking forward to.”

While Vick will take any team who will take him, there’s only one the native Virginian dreams about: the Washington Redskins.

“I’m open to playing for anybody that wants to win,” said the former Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons star. “But obviously, going back home, I mean, that’ll be a dream come true,” he said, smiling again. “But I would hate to get my hopes up for something that wouldn’t happen. So I can’t even think about it right now.”

And while the 34-year-old Vick would obviously enjoy playing for his hometown team, he admits reuniting with former Eagles’ receiver DeSean Jackson is something the duo talked about, even discussing a possible reunion this past season in New York before DeSean opted to go to DC instead.

As for the quarterbacking situation down in Washington, Robert Griffin III, the man they bet the farm on, is expected to make the start on Saturday against the Eagles, but there’s no guarantee he will start in 2015.

Vick has thrown for just 604 yards in 2014 with a not-very-impressive 52.9 completion percentage. There were 58 other quarterbacks in the league this season who had a better QB rating than Vick’s 68.3.

Hannity Reduces Jay Z to ‘Crack Dealer’; Daily Show’s Jessica Williams Claps Back (Video)

*Jay Z may have earned success as a rapper, record label head, one-time NBA owner and current business mogul, but to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, he’s nothing more than a “former crack dealer.”

“F**k, man,” Jon Stewart said on “The Daily Show” Wednesday night, after playing a clip of Hannity’s comments. “I don’t even know what to do here.”

Using Fox News’ own standards in labeling people, “The Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams joined Stewart to give new titles to some of the network’s favorite talking heads, including Ted Nugent, G. Gordon Liddy and Mark Fuhrman, based on “the worst thing they’ve ever done.”

Rush Limbaugh, for example, is no longer a “radio talk show host”; he’s a “prescription drug addict.”

Twitter: K. Michelle Has the Nerve to Trash VH1’s ‘Sorority Sisters’ (Video)

k michelle interview

*Singer and former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star K. Michelle got herself a backlash on Twitter after commenting about the ratchetness of VH1’s new reality series, “Sorority Sisters.”

While most everyone agrees that the show is an embarrassment to black sororities, a ton of feedback questioned her audacity to say it, considering she was criticized for perpetrating the same ratchetness on “L&HHA.”

K. Michelle – a member of Delta Sigma Theta, one of the sororities featured on the series – spoke with Kiki Brown of Q92 in Baltimore after the show premiered Monday night.

“It’s not appropriate,” she said of the show’s subject matter. “I’m not a fake person in my beliefs. That should have never been touched…something should be sacred for us.

“The sororities and fraternities are the one thing we look to in college that uplift the community. Things aren’t peaches and cream, but everything doesn’t need to be exposed when it comes to that. I have no respect for those women.”

Fans immediately went in, calling her a hypocrite.

K. Michelle’s response to being called hypocritical? She admitted that she has “acted a fool” on national television, but never did it with “Delta Sigma Theta tatted on my back in front of everybody.”

Ashanti Grilled by Her Alleged Stalker on the Witness Stand

*Ashanti’s accused stalker was said to be “gleeful” about his chance to sit just a stone’s throw from the object of his obsession in court.

Devar Hurd, acting as his own lawyer, got to cross-examine the singer in Manhattan Supreme Court. During closing arguments on Wednesday. The prosecutor told the jury that he was giddy over getting to be so close to Ashanti.

“He was positively gleeful to sit no more than 10 feet from Ashanti, take his time talking to her, questioning her, keeping her on the stand, knowing this was the only way he was going to be able to talk to her,” Assistant District Attorney Rachel Ehrhardt said in closing arguments at Hurd’s trial.

Hurd countered in his own closing statement: “There was never any evidence I intended to harass, annoy, alarm; nothing to show I had intent to unlawfully imprison, rape, kidnap or kill her. I have not stalked this girl.”
