Watching Wednesday. Our eyes are everywhere to get things started today, beginning with Diddy dumping Cassie for another pretty young thing. There's no love in the air with Kobe Bryant and in fact, just the opposite, as he's ready to hurt a certain someone. Speaking of hurt, one "Love & Hip Hop" cast member's feelings have to be down over booty implant rumors. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. On To The Next One

Does Diddy have a thing for the really young girls? It seems like he has moved on from 26-year-old Cassie and now has his eyes, and lips, all over supermodel Kate Upton. The New York Daily News is all over this:

Kate Upton

After the 20-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl said she was single on Valentine's Day and had broken up with star Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, she was spotted a little over a month later, on March 24, sucking face with Diddy, 43, at club LIV in Miami Beach. "They were kissing, they weren't hiding it," an eyewitness tells Confidenti@l. Earlier that night, Diddy, hosting a bash at the club, had tweeted: "Miami ... Ain't no party like a @iamdiddy party ... Meet me at Club Liv 2nite #CIROCBOYZ in the building!!!" The curvy Upton soon joined him in the VIP section and she and the hip-hop mogul stayed together, partying late into the night. Following their hot hookup in South Beach, the duo met up again in New York, sharing an intimate dinner together at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel on Thursday. "They were having dinner together," a source tells us. Upton, silent on Twitter that day, the next morning tweeted: "Cuddling with my favorite tiger :)" an obvious diss to Verlander, because she linked to a picture of her holding an actual tiger cub in a Bazaar magazine shoot. Diddy, who has been linked to Cameron Diaz and most recently singer Cassie, was spotted with the latter house-hunting in Beverly Hills in January. The relationship has appeared to have since cooled off. (New York Daily News)

Ouch! There's a bunch more juicy details in there if anyone has the interest to keep up with this thing. Wow, you have to wonder what went down with Cassie and Diddy? Are they back to being boss-employee or could this be something bigger? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Mama Said Knock You Out

At this point, anyone with the least bit of knowledge in college sports is aware former Rutgers head coach Mike Rice is out of there but if there's one person who made it known he would not tolerate having a coach put their hands all over him, it's Kobe Bryant. TMZ has the goods:

Put your hands on Kobe Bryant ... he's gonna put a beatdown on you -- even if you're his coach. During an interview with Jim Rome ... Kobe reacted to the infamous video of now-fired Rutgers coach Mike Rice getting physical with his players, saying if he was on that team ... "I woulda smacked the hell out of him. No question about it." It's interesting since Kobe never played college hoops -- going straight from high school to the NBA -- but he points out that as an 18-year-old he didn't take crap from Shaquille O'Neal ... so why would he take it from a coach. There is one person Kobe will let smack him around ... check out the clip. The full interview airs tonight on Showtime. (TMZ)

In all fairness, Kobe never did play college basketball, but at the same token, a coach is a coach. There are some limits you cannot cross and Coach Rice definitely passed them. Does Kobe make valid points here? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. On & Poppin'

Is it really a wrap for Erica Mena? After we all expected her and Rich Dollaz to float into paradise hand-in-hand, it seems like the media cannot get enough of the controversy, whether it is leaked photos of Rich's you-know-what, his baby mama drama or Erica's fake butt? Wait, really? Media Take Out has a spin on this:

April 10, 2013: Erica was poppin' off about something on the LOVE AND HIP HOP reunion show the other night . . . but we can't remember WHAT she was talking about. What we DO REMEMBER . . . is just how FOO-GAY-ZEE her cakes were looking. We can't wait for this FAKE BOOTY TREND to end . . . (Media Take Out)

It is extremely hard to tell when things are frozen, but the back Erica has right here is defintely in need of questioning. Would she really throw a few big bucks into getting surgery done where the sun doesn't shine? If so, should she get her money back? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
