I'S FREE NOW: Plaxico Burress Released From Jail After 20 Months Served

Posted: 06 Jun 2011 07:07 AM PDT

Former NY Giants Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress was released from the Oneida Correctional Facility today after serving 20-months stemming from a felony gun possession charge.  Deets inside....


Plaxico Burress is a free man today, having served time for a felony gun possession charge.

We told you previously that Plaxico went to a Manhattan nightclub called the Latin Quarter with an unlicensed gun tucked inside sweatpants. At some point during the evening, the gun went off, and a bullet went into his thigh. With NY having some of the most stiff gun laws in the country, Plaxico was arrested and plead guilty to a felony gun possession charge.  He was sentenced to two years in jail.

So what's next for him? Although the NFL lockout is still in place, Plaxico's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press that he will get back into football shape and make a comeback.  "He will play in the NFL this year," Drew said.   

In the meantine, Plaxico returns home to his wife Tiffany, 4-year-old son, Elijah, and year-and-a-half old daughter, Giovanna, who was born while he was incarcerated.

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards went down Sunday night in Los Angeles.  We've got pics of the black-bobbed Nicki Minaj, the blonde-bobbed Lil Mama, and Trey Songz, Lupe, and Tyrese.  Check out their red carpet and press room pics inside....

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards were held tonight at the Gibson Amphitheater and hosted by Jason Sudeikis.

Nicki Minaj and her massive attack of a push-up bra hit the press room after presenting the award for Bet Female Performance (which went to Twilight's Kristen Stewart) with Ashton Kutcher:

She rocked ankle length khaki pants by Gianmarco Lorenzi with a Versace Atelier vest and bra underneath and sparkly peep-toe wedges.  Her typical look that we're still not feeling as it just feels incomplete.  But the makeup is cute as usual.

She got silly backstage with her fans.

Trey Songz hit the press room with Lupe Fiasco after their performance of "Out Of My Head":

And Trey hit the red carpet his leather jackt in scarf.

It's almost like Nicki Minaj and Lil Mama dipped into each others' wig crypts for the night.  The "ABDC" host busted ut a short bleached blonde bob for tonight's Awards:

Lil' Mama stepped her fashion game up in this Sherri Hill Fall 2011 black embellished mini dress.

Finally.....I think homegirl got it right.  The look aint for everybody.  But it works for her.


Tyrese, star of the upcoming latest Transformers installment, rocked a casual look...but he looked hot as usual.


Jessica Szohr from "Gossip Girl" dazzled in a paisley palazzo onesie courtesy of Alice + Olivia.  And she paired it with a metallic clutch.  The look is hard to pull off but she looks cute.

And "DWTS" rapper Romeo was there looking handsome.

WEDDING FAB: Monica & Shannon Brown's New Wedding Invitations

Posted: 05 Jun 2011 05:20 PM PDT

Though Monica and Shannon Brown are already married, they sent out 300 wedding invitations this week for their second ceremony.  The first ceremony happened back in January in secret...with only their families in tow.  The couple is now inviting family and friends to a fabulous wedding ceremony on July 9th where the couple will exchange vows again. 

Check out the invites inside....


Monica and Shannon's invites were designed by Sandi Spells Designs, of College Park.  She spoke to V-103 saying, 

“I would say this is probably the most extravagant I’ve created. Definitely the heaviest. I’ve used acrylic and fabric before, but this is all acrylic. And usually something like that takes a month. But when she called, I just had an idea for the whole project.”

And here's what some folks received in their mailboxes over the weekend:


Watch V-103's Ryan Cameron open the invite here:

I wonder which basketball wives she invited.  This could get interesting....

WHOA: Thandie Newton Reveals Affair She Had At Age 16 With 39-Year-Old Film Director

Posted: 05 Jun 2011 12:47 PM PDT

In a recent interview, For Colored Girls actress Thandie Newton opens up about a relationship she had with a film director, who was 23-years older than her, that began when she was 16.  Deets inside...

Thandie Newton has recently opened up about a devastating relationship she carried on with John Duigan, a film director 23-years older than her, whom she says coerced her into a relationship at 16.

Thandie says the six-year affair began after travelling to Australia to audition for his film Flirting, which starred Nicole Kidman.

"I was a very shy, very sweet girl. I wasn’t in control of the situation. Would I have liked things to be different? Sure. 'But I can now value myself more for the way I got through it. I don’t see myself as a victim.’

When asked why she never reported it to police, Thandie said,

 ‘I am my own supreme court. I judge that one. And in a strict legal way there might not be a case. In retrospect, although it was legal because I was 16, I was coerced."

So why is the actress talking about the relationship now?  She says she spoke up so "teenagers can see they can resist and gain self-awareness".

Wow.  Scarily, this happens more often than not in the entertainment business.  Hopefully young girls getting into the smoke and mirrors of the industry realize what's worth it--and what's not.
