Nicki Minaj has been appointed to front the Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign for Roberto Cavalli.

“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman,” Roberto said in a statement. “In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength,”

Nicki posed for the fashion shoot in Los Angeles for famed photographer Francesco Carrozzini.

Nicki has been working the talk show circuit all week to promote her new album, “The Pinkprint.”

On Wednesday, she stopped by Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” for a one-on-one with host Andy Cohen.

Cohen asked Minaj a question from a viewer: “If you were single and Drake was single, would you want to sleep with him?”

Watch her answer below:

During a round of “Plead the Fifth,” in which Cohen asked three questions with only one veto allowed, Minaj revealed little more. “You were on Beyoncé’s ‘***Flawless’ remix, which was really the only time she’s commented publicly on the elevator mishegas. What can you tell me about what you know about what went on in that elevator?” he asked.

She also visited Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Dec. 16.


Phaedra Talks to Jailed Apollo ‘All the Time’; Plans Xmas Visit With Kids (Watch)


Apollo Nida will have something to look forward to this Christmas thanks to his soon-to-be ex-wife Phaedra Parks.

The 40-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star will visit him in prison, according to her video interview with TMZ. [Watch below.]

“You know what, I would love to,”  Parks said about whether she’ll allow the couple’s two sons, ages 4 and 1, to visit Nida, 35, for the holidays.

When asked if she’ll get him a gift, she shot back, “I’ll send him a Christmas card and everything. I speak to him all the time.”

Although they are in the midst of a divorce, she is still wearing her wedding ring in the video. It was revealed in October that she is taking steps to dissolve her five-year marriage.

Nida is serving an eight-year sentence after being convicted on federal fraud charges. He’s also been ordered to pay $1.9 million in restitution.


Poor NeNe: Not One ‘RHOA’ Castmate Has Shown Her Any ‘Cinderella’ Support

nene-leakesNeNe Leakes can go on and on about how she’s “killin’” her character while performing on Broadway in “Cinderella,” but to date, she hasn’t gotten a bit of support from her fellow “Real Housewives of Atlanta” castmates

Chatting with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, Leakes admitted that “as of today, no housewife of Atlanta has been to the ‘Cinderella’ Broadway show” while she’s been in it. In addition, Leakes stated that “none of them have sent a gift.”

“I think I may’ve gotten a text from Phaedra and Portia saying, you know, definitely from Phaedra, saying ‘congrats’ or something like that, Leakes shared with HuffPost Live host Caitlyn Becker. All of the different franchises — New Jersey, New York, Orange County — the housewives have been there.”

Although she’s hoping that Phaedra and Portia will be come to her show this Friday, Leakes isn’t one to let the no-shows from her “RHOA” cast mates get to her.

“It doesn’t hurt my feelings,” she said. “I kind of look at it as — I don’t really know any other way to say it other than: the hate is real. The hate is really real. Because you know we have our differences, but I, in some big instance, I would be there to support.”

“If they don’t wanna come it’s fine because I’m killin’ the character,” Leakes added. “I do it to the tee.”

Surprise Party Thrown for Ray and Janay Rice (Pics)


Friends of Ray and Janay Rice threw them a surprise party Monday night to celebrate being in Baltimore for seven years.

He may not be on the city’s NFL team anymore, but it didn’t stop the drinks from flowing.

TMZ reports:

Janay posted a few pics from the party at their home — looks like they played Cards Against Humanity and drank beers and a handle of Fireball.

We don’t know what Ray was drinking, but as we first reported — he blamed the entire elevator incident on hard alcohol and told friends he was swearing off the stuff completely.


Janay captioned her pics with: “our Bmore family is seriously the best!!! We thought we were having a normal Monday night then the doorbell rang…little did we know there they were with drinks, food, games, and the most of all love & support!”

One of her hashtags was “#lovenomatterwhereweare” … perhaps an acknowledgment that after 7 years they’ll most likely be leaving Baltimore when — and if — Ray gets picked up by another NFL team.
