The proverbial book was thrown at Remy Ma yesterday when she was sentenced to eight years in prison for shooting an acquaintance over missing money. And adding insult to injury, she began her bid as a single woman. The rapper attempted to marry her rapper/fiancé Papoose before beginning her sentence, but Monday’s jailhouse ceremony was cancelled after he was discovered holding a handcuff key and thrown in a cell. “The key that was found today easily opened handcuffs that we and other law enforcement officials use,” a prison official told the New York Daily News. “The visitor was sanctioned by not being able to visit Rikers Island again for six months. He was asked to leave.” Papoose, however, says jail officials were already aware of the key, which he describes as a skeleton key that has hung from his keychain without repercussion each time he has visited Remy at Rikers Island. “The handcuff thing was ridiculous,” Pap told “The law states, if I carried a handcuff key into a prison, I would have been arrested.” Marlon, one half of Remy’s management team, suggested to SOHH that jail officials were simply using Pap’s skeleton key as an excuse to cancel the wedding.


Isaiah Washington has filed a formal complaint with the Screen Actors Guild against his ex-employer ABC for allowing his image to be used in last week’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
The actor, who was fired from the show in 2007 amid controversy that he used a homophobic slur, claims the producers never got proper consent to use his head shot, which was featured in a newspaper article about his character receiving a prestigious surgeon’s award. Washington’s attorney, Peter Nelson, sent notices to ABC and SAG indicating the alleged inappropriate use of his image, his manager Howard Bragman told the Associated Press. “They have the rights of the character to advance the story, but not the image,” he said, adding that he expects this matter to be resolved via a “financial settlement.”


Halle Berry has decided to tell the world about the diet and exercise plan she used to shed pounds gained before the March 16th birth of her daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry. The 41-year-old works out for 60 minutes, five days a week with trainer Ramona Brazaga. Their sessions consist of three cardio segments – the elliptical machine, kickboxing and a stairs or hill climb – as well as a strength-training routine that include abdominal work and leg exercises. As for her diet, Berry says she eats lots of vegetables, lean proteins and complex carbohydrates, as well as drinking a large quantity of water.
