Labelle Was Robbed Of Diamond Earrings

Singing legend PATTI LABELLE was robbed of a pair of diamond earrings OPRAH WINFREY gave her as a gift.
LaBelle was a guest of honour at Winfrey's 2006 Legend's Ball, a three-day celebration recognising great African-American women.
The daytime TV queen presented each of the honorees a pair of costly earrings - but LaBelle's jewels never made it back to her home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
She says, "Oprah gave us all big diamonds, but somebody stole mine. I was robbed.
"It wasn't at the airport. I don't know where it was, but those earrings are gone."
But the star insists she isn't mourning the loss - because she has so many possessions, she's doing away with some of her clothes and jewellery.
She adds, "But it's okay. I have too much stuff. We're in a depression, and I'm selling some of my stuff."

OH NAWL!!!! Miss PATTI was jacked?!?!?!! How dare they!It is such a shame today that any and everyone has to watch his or her back because of the elevated amounts of maniacs out here! As charitable as Patti LaBelle has been known to be, she certainly would have tried to help this person, had he or she truly been in a situation of dire need. Yet, she was unfortunately reminded that scum can be found any and everywhere, and NO ONE is immune!On a brighter note, Miss Patti, please keep up the priceless work that you do for today's society. Your charitable efforts are recognized, and there are those of us out here that appreciate all that you are doing! Thank you and we love you!Catigulalook for online blog...
