Foxy Brown wants off the Island. The rapper, currently on lockdown at Rikers Island for alleged parole violations, has lost her petition to leave jail on claims that she is suffering. The artist, who recently announced she is three months pregnant and engaged, was ordered behind bars pending her next hearing on Sept. 7. But Foxy filed a lawsuit against the Correction Department to wait for the court date at home, alleging she has been suffering since being tossed in the pokey last Wednesday (Aug. 21).



Toni Braxton has issued a statement that denies she has breast cancer. The singer and Las Vegas showroom star has been dogged by rumors and published reports from various outlets that she had been diagnosed with the deadly disease. Braxton issued the following statement on Tuesday to Access Hollywood: There has been a rumor circulating that I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. After feeling something uncomfortable in my left breast, I went in for a screening. I was very fortunate that they did not find anything and I am in great health. However, I encourage women to take their annual tests and suggested precautions to prevent this disease that continues to affect so many women. The 39-year-old mother of two is currently starring five nights a week in her own Las Vegas show, Toni Braxton: Revealed, at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino.



Bo Diddley, 78, was in stable condition at a hospital in Gainesville, Fla. after suffering a heart attack, his publicist said Tuesday. “He is conscious,” said publicist Susan Clary. “The situation is very serious.” The singer-guitarist complained of dizziness and nausea during a routine physical with his doctor on Friday, said Clary. He was taken to North Florida Regional Medical Center in Gainesville where a stent was implanted to improve the blood flow to his heart. In May, Diddley suffered a stroke after casino performances in Council Bluffs, Iowa and was hospitalized in Nebraska. He was soon transferred to Florida near his north central hometown of Archer. The music icon topped the R&B charts with “Bo Diddley” in 1955. His other hits include “Who Do You Love,” “Before You Accuse Me,” “Mona” and “I’m a Man.”



If the cast of Dancing With the Stars announced Wednesday on Good Morning America differs from the group of celebrities leaked Monday to, then ABC was successful in its attempt to circumvent possible moles within its ranks. According to the Web site, executives at the network feared the cast would be leaked before this morning’s official announcement, so they gave the show’s staff and crew a list of names that may or may not be 100% accurate, says TMZ. Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Nia Peeples were among the celebrities announced in Monday’s leak. Wayne Newton, so far, is the only confirmed participant in the new season. And TMZ is reporting that Marie Osmond will compete as well.



Robert Downey Jr. has signed on to star opposite Jamie Foxx in The Soloist, a fact-based drama about a world class violinist who ended up homeless on L.A.s Skid Row. As previously reported, Foxx will play Nathaniel Ayers, the homeless man whose music career was derailed when he developed schizophrenia and could not continue. Downey has been cast as Steve Lopez, the Los Angeles Times columnist who discovered Ayers. Through his columns written about the musician, Lopez developed a close relationship with Ayers that changed both their lives. The DreamWorks film is based on Lopez’s columns, as well as a book he wrote that will be published by Putnam next spring.



Jennifer Lopez is developing a new television series set in the world of Quinceaneras, a cultural event in the Latin community that celebrates a girl’s 15th birthday. “The Amigas Sweet 15 Club,” billed as a half-hour comedy with dramatic undertones, follows five teens as they use their collective talents (one is a singer, one is a DJ, one is a graphic artist, etc.) to launch an after-school party-planning business aimed at helping Latina girls throw their dream Quinceanera bashes, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Each episode would focus on a different girl and on how her family and cultural background play into planning the event.
