1. Pants On The Ground

Life must be pretty hard for Kris Humphries. He gets heckled by the media, the fans at his own home games and now rumors that he's carrying a sexually transmitted disease? Even worse, he gave it to a woman? TMZ has the inside on this sticky situation:

Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010 at the Newsroom Cafe on Robertson Blvd in L.A. -- long before Kris met Kim Kardashian. The two flirted, exchanged numbers, and Kayla claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip. According to the suit, Kris came on to Kayla, touching, kissing and dancing with her. Kayla claims he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times ... including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom. The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes -- and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease. Kayla says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes. Her symptoms included a sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful lesions on her genitalia. She's suing for sexual battery claiming Kris knew he had herpes when they hooked up and didn't tell her. Kayla -- who put her full name in the lawsuit -- is suing for unspecified damages. We reached out to Kris for comment ... so far no response. (TMZ)

This alleged story is something no one wants to have to deal with, let alone be attached to. Could Kris really be balling with herpes? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Twins

Nicki Minaj is so known for her different styles and unique swagger, but the latest tidbit about her is that she stole Beyoncé's look? Or at least one of her looks? Media Take Out has a face-to-face look at this new accusation:



August 30, 2012: Nicki Minaj revealed a new TWITTER PROFILE PIC yesterday. But she took it down . . . after fans BLASTED her for jackin Beyonce's pic - and photoshpping HER FACE onto it. Nicki has since changed the pic. (Media Take Out)

There's really no shame in copying other artists, is there? Just look at the homage Nicki has paid others like Lil' Kim? Oh wait. Nevermind. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Phone Home

Could Dr. Dre really have the secret weapon to take down the iPhone for good? With all the buzz about an iPhone 5 dropping next month, it was bound to happen that someone or some company would try to compete (like the Samsung Galaxy III) but Dr. Dre of all people? All Hip Hop Rumors has the inside:

Rumors are swirling that Beats Electronics, the company owned by Dr. Dre and Interscope big wig, Jimmy Iovine, are creating a smart phone that will rival the heralded iPhone - but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Beats is allegedly going head-to-head with Apple's product portfolio and plans to launch their own TV with Beats, a service similar to Apple TV, and "Daisy," a service that will work similar to iTunes. According to Boy Genius Report , Beats has partnered up with Samsung to create a "TV with Beats connect" that will work integrate seamlessly with their other products, similar to Apple products. The new products are still in the planning stages, but the specs are done. Dr. Dre is getting that paper! I just hope they don't charge an arm and a leg for the phone. Do you think any of Apple's loyal customers will be making the switch to Beats? (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Should we all believe this hype or really go ahead and get to saving our money for the iPhone 5? Is the phone wars really getting ready to take off? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
