Keyshia Cole Trashes Michelle Williams’ Super Bowl Performance

Keyshia Cole was less than impressed with the Destiny’s Child reunion during Super Bowl XLVII. The outspoken R&B singer, 31, shared her candid — and cruel — commentary with her 217,577 Twitter followers in a series of posts Feb. 4.

Beyonce Knowles, 31, Kelly Rowland, 31, and Michelle Williams, 32, performed “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part 1” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” during the Mercedes-Benz halftime show; celebrities including Kelly Clarkson, Jimmy Fallon, Sophia Bush and Chris Colfer praised the medley via Twitter.

“F-ck that shit up then Beyonce! Bad bitch central,” Cole wrote of the headliner, who also performed a selection of her solo hits. “I think I was frightened to blink for a sec. Then Michelle sung and woke my ass up from my daze! She always f-cking the groove up.”

After Destiny’s Child fans targeted Cole’s Twitter account in defense of the popular girl group, the “Love” singer offered a half-hearted apology. “But hey! I love y’all too!” she tweeted. “And y’all girl is whack and always will be!”

Despite Cole’s harsh criticism, Williams was pleased with her performance. “Had a great time with my sisters tonight! Tried to keep it a surprise!” tweeted the singer, who replaced original Destiny’s Child members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson when she joined the group in 2000. “Love you all. God bless!”

Knowles, too, was thrilled with how everything turned out. “It feels good to know the hard work paid off. It’s a live television show. It’s the biggest show in America,” Jay-Z ‘s wife told OMG! Insider following her performance. “There’s so many things that could happen and God was on my side, so I’m very, very happy that it went well and the power went out after.”

Manti Te’o, Notre Dame Linebacker, Claims He Was the Victim of Girlfriend Hoax

Notre Dame’s linebacker Manti Te’o’s inspirational story of overcoming the death of his grandmother and girlfriend on the same day last fall — leading the Fighting Irish to an undefeated season — was a hoax.

Deadspin released the shocking report Wednesday, Jan. 16 that the 21-year-old Hawaiian native’s late girlfriend, Lennay Marie Kekua, never existed. While there is a Social Security Administration record of his grandmother Annette Santiago’s death on Sept. 11, 2012, there is not a record of the death of Kekua, who was said to be a 22-year-old Stanford University student who died of leukemia.

Te’o released a statement to ESPN Wednesday regarding the reports. “This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her,” the Heisman finalist said. “To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone’s sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother’s death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life.”

“I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick,” he continued. “I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been. In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was. Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I’m looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft.”

Notre Dame Assistant Vice President Dennis Brown also issued a statement in response to the shocking revelation. “On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia,” he said. “The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.”

But many reports speculate that Te’o was in on the hoax. Timothy Burke, co-author of the Deadspin article, told CNN, “Te’o’s story that he is completely innocent in this does not really ring true to us.”

Eva Longoria & Mark Sanchez Are Officially Dating

All of the rumors that have been swirling around about Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez have officially been confirmed. The Desperate Housewives star and the New York Jets Quarterback have been seen out frequently together. The actress confirmed on “Extra” with “Mark and I are, you know, fine.

NFL To Use First-Ever Female Referee

Shannon Eastin, who has spent time officiating high school and college games, will be part of the replacement crew officiating Thursday’s Packers-Chargers game. Eastin has worked Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference games, and she also has worked the Arizona Cardinals’ Red and White game, a preseason scrimmage.

Coincidentally, at this time last season, the NFL’s head of officials said the league was considering hiring a female referee full time.

“We have some in our pipeline, and I expect we’ll see it soon,” he said.

Male or female, former NFL head of officials Mike Pereira said using replacement referees will ultimately hurt the integrity of the game.

“Now you’re going to get a group of people out there with no experience,” Pereira told The Dan Patrick Show, “and you’ve got such a mix of people — some with barely more than high school experience, you’ve got guys that have been out of the game for years, you’ve got guys that have officiated in the lingerie football league … you’ve got such a mix right now that it’s not good for the game.”

This is the first referee labor dispute since 2001 when a contract issue led to the referees missing the last exhibition game and first regular-season game of the season.
