Check out why we’re going back for a second mug of joe:

  • Sherri Shepherd is releasing a few details about her upcoming August 30th wedding to fiance Lamar Sally. She’s decided on a red velvet wedding cake and is looking at options for a honeymoon. “We’re looking at Thailand or somewhere over in Europe. We want to go somewhere exotic,” she says. Also, the comedian is said to be training her 6-year-old son Jeffery on how to walk her down the aisle. [People]

  • Kimberly Elise is branching out to do other sorts of films. The “For Colored Girls” actress has signed on to do a “Nollywood” film (Nigerian) called “Ties That Bind.” It’s about three women who share one common thread — they’ve each lost a child. The film has already begun shooting in Ghana. [Eurweb]

  • News reports are swirling that Beyonce has hired 200 African dancers for her upcoming video “Girl” from her new studio album. It sound like the pop diva is set to make another huge impression on the music world. [Punch Bowl]

  • Ciara was named one of People’s most beautiful people. We could think of a number of other folk who deserve to be on that list. [YBF]

  • Phadera Parks’ husband, Apollo, was “mistakenly” handcuffed during an investigation. He was pulled over and detained until investigators realized they had the wrong guy! Sounds suspect! [YBF]

  • Rihanna has tapped Britney Spears for an “S&M” remix. This should make for an exciting and more than likely X-rated song. In other Spears news, she has asked Nicki Minaj to join her on tour. [TGJ] [Bossip]

  • Nicole Richie is clearing up pregnancy rumors. “Contrary to recent speculation. I am not pregnant. This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity. To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean-spirited and cruel,” says Richie. Ouch! [People]
