Diamonds on the diamond

Nelly hit home runs to left and right field at Sunday’s Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game. Later at the All-Star Bash, the rapper arrived in his signature gi-normous diamond earrings. Assuming he wore them for the game, I said those diamonds didn’t slow him on the diamond.

“No, ma’am,” he said.


Denton can play with style

Bravo’s Andy Cohen can be such a fashion plate.

For the All-Star Bash, he was sort of, uh, dressed down in golf shirt, casual pants and some sneakers I now covet. So were many others, but I decided to tweak Cohen a little anyhow.

Who are you wearing? “Ha, ha,” Cohen said, perhaps not even mildly amused.

See, when I put that question to James Denton, he threw his head back, laughed and said, “How ya doin’, CJ? I’m wearing straight from the softball game! I didn’t even take a shower.”

If I played softball as well as Denton, I’d never shower.
