Mary J. Blige has commented on her pulled Burger King ad, and the "Be Without You" singer says the spot was not what she expected.

"I agreed to be a part of a fun and creative campaign that was supposed to feature a dream sequence. Unfortunately, that's not what was happening in that clip," Blige told TMZ. "I understand my fans being upset by what they saw. But, if you're a Mary fan, you have to know I would never allow an unfinished spot like the one you saw go out."

The commercial (above) appeared on the King's YouTube channel yesterday, only to be pulled hours later as fans criticized the clip.

The fast food company said the ad was released "before all of the licensing and final approvals were obtained. We would like to apologize to Mary J. and all of her fans for airing an ad that was not final."

The burger chain says a new version of the spot will be released soon.

Beverly Hills Housewife Hostility of the Day

- -

Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmate Camille Grammer has been dating lawyer Dimitri Charalambopoulos, and the former housewife allegedly called his ex-girlfriend to threaten her.

In the video above, a recorded phone conversation is played back for Charalambopoulos. The voice in the message is supposedly Grammer's, and she threatens to "desecrate" the mother of Charalambopoulos' son.

"If you go to the press, I have lawyers that are beyond what you can imagine and they will pull stuff on you and you will be so mortified about your life and your family and what you have done," says the voice.

"You don't want to do that to Marcus, I will desecrate you, believe me, and that I can do," she continues, "so be careful what you say and what you do because my defamation attorneys are huge...they will hunt down and research every nook and cranny of your life."

The above video was taken while Charalambopoulos was being deposed because his ex-girlfriend allegedly wants to move with their son to Colorado.


Cover Girl of the Day

Rihanna covers the May edition of Elle magazine and inside, the Bajan singer opens up about her reconciliation with Chris Brown.

"I respect what other people have to say. The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently," she says of the criticism. "It's very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that's all right. I don't hate them for it."

Three years ago, Brown was charged with felony assault after he violently attacked Rihanna just before the Grammy Awards. Despite their troubled past, the singers recently collaborated on two remixes.

She received a lot of backlash for working with her former boyfriend, but she's not apologizing: "Because tomorrow I'm still going to be the same person. I'm still going to do what I want to do."

A source recently told Page Six that her management had banned her from working with Brown, but she insists on doing it anyway.

"Rihanna is rebelling," says the insider. "She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself. They fear she'll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them."
