Diddy rumored to be back with baby mama, vying to be ‘Black Bruce Willis’

Mount Vernon native Sean “Diddy” Combs has had a busy month so far. First, on May 2, he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and, according to People, proclaimed himself the black Bruce Willis. (Actually, the full quote was: “I’m trying to get my Black Bruce Willis on.”)

And on that same day, he was reportedly spotted having lunch with his ex, Kim Porter, at Italian restaurant Trilussa in Beverly Hills. You may recall, Diddy and Porter split a month ago, after Porter gave birth to the couple’s twin girls, D’Lila Star and Jessie James. Including son Christian, that’s three kids the couple has.

Could this lunch mean the couple’s giving it another go? BlogXilla certainly hopes so. Here, they share “13 reasons to get back with your baby mama.”

Thanks to Amy Vernon for the tip!

Audra McDonald is the new Ruby Dee

Over the course of the next month, as we build up to the Oscars, we’re going to try to uncover every conceivable thing to write about New Rocheller Ruby Dee, who’s up for Best Supporting Actress. Today, courtesy of Friend of Suburbarazzi Amy Vernon, we’ve got something for you to add to the DVR queue.

On the night after the Academy Awards, ABC is airing an update of the classic “A Raisin in the Sun,” produced by Sean “Puffy” Combs. The original 1961 film starred Dee (bottom left) opposite Sidney Poitier (a former Pleasantville resident), and while this one doesn’t actually feature either, it does have SUNY Purchase Performing Arts Center regular Audra McDonald (bottom right) reprising Dee’s role, this time opposite Combs.

Be sure to check it out: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET)
