"Yes, she woke up"
It sounds like there could be some really, really great news in the Bobbi Kristina Brown case. Her father Bobby Brown recently gave a live performance and made a very brief reference to his daughter being “awake,” and now we’re learning that another family member has publicly announced that Bobbi Kris is officially off life support. We don’t have any official word from a representative, but if the people close to her are making these announcements, I’m going to assume that there’s been some positive progress.

OMG, he is a cutie!!
A little over a week ago, we learned that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel welcomed the birth of a baby boy they named Silas Randall. Today, in celebration of the Memphis Grizzlies basketball team making the playoffs (or whatever), JT shares the first photo of his and Jessica‘s newborn son. Considering how private the couple usually are, I didn’t expect that we’d get to meet the little dude so soon. Clearly, JT and Jessica‘s intense love of basketball has made them generous.

Another big reveal from the Sony hack
I heard about this last night and thought it was a really fascinating story. I haven’t watched Henry Louis Gates, Jr.‘s new PBS show Finding Your Roots, but I’m a big fan of his academic work (one of my favorite books of all time is his collection, Reading Black, Reading Feminist). And—fun fact—my parents used to run in the same circle as he does so I met him a few times when I was a kid. He also did great work on the PBS miniseries The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross. So it’s kind of interesting to see his name mixed up in this Ben Affleck scandal of sorts. Apparently, Affleck appeared on the show, but demanded that Gates go against PBS policy and hide the truth about his ancestors—that they were slave owners. Click inside for more.
"I'm a hopeless romantic"
Let the reconciliation rumors begin! We all know that breaking up is wicked hard to do, and watching a celebrity breakup is even harder (just kidding… it’s not, but it still sucks). We’ve been watching Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey go through the motions of a really tough split-up, but it’s starting to sound like maybe—just maybe!—it ain’t over yet! (And maybe that Easter egg hunt was our first clue.) Cannon recently appeared on the new Meredith Vieira Show and really opened up about his feelings on their breakup. Click inside for more!

There are few things that excite more in this world than meeting (or “meeting”) someone’s mom. Characters on TV, characters in movies, celebrities, your friends and lovers—everyone just makes a lot more sense when you can bear witness to the human from whence they came. I know I’ve seen photos of Nicki Minaj‘s mother before, but something about this one she just shared on Instagram is just… perfect. The [probably] newly-engaged rapper comes from what appears to be royalty, so things are making more sense now. Click inside for more!

British fashion brand Burberry hosted a special London in Los Angeles event at the Griffith Observatory last night which included a who’s who the fashion elite at the runway show. The entire Beckham family was seated in the front row next to Vogue magazine editor/fashion goddess Anna Wintour. Yahoo! Style‘s Joe Zee was seated directly across from Les Beckhams — Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, Victoria, Harper and David — and he shared a really cute photo of the family on his official Twitter profile, which you can see below.

Seriously, Bey hit the jackpot here
PITNB reader schmee gave me the head’s up about a follow-up to the story about Beyoncé‘s mother Tina‘s new husband Richard Lawson that blew my mind so entirely that I have to share it with all y’all. Yesterday we learned officially that Bey‘s mom Tina got remarried on Sunday to man named Richard Lawson, which is all well and good, but it turns out that Richard‘s daughter Bianca Lawson is an actress … and not just any actress … but the actress who played Kendra the Vampire Slayer on The WB series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. FOLKS, Beyoncé‘s new step sister is KENDRA THE MF VAMPIRE SLAYER!!!!!!! More »

Beyoncé happily shared a photo of her mother, wearing a dress by Romona Keveza, on her official website and TMZ happily shares deets about the nuptials … which you can see and read below. More »
"Good morning Jerusalem!"
Yesterday we learned that Kanye West and his wife took their baby daughter North West to Jerusalem so that she could be baptized in an Armenian church there and today we learn that the West fam woke up super early this morning so that they could make a family trip to the site believed to be the place where Jesus Christ was crucified. I can’t say that such a location would be high on my must-visit places but I suppose when one is holidaying in the Holy Land, these are the sorts of attractions that are on the tour agenda. Kanye‘s wife shared a photo from their visit this morning, which you can see below. More »
