Sunday was Vanessa Bryant’s 31st birthday, so her hubby, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant made the kind of gesture only über-rich folks can do to make her special day that much more savory: He flew in a chef from Milan, Italy to prepare her birthday meal. Usually, Kobe is far too busy at this time of the year to probably go above and beyond on Vanessa’s birthday, what with the Lakers often competing in the playoffs, but with his injury and the team’s early exit, Bryant appeared to go above and beyond for his wife. On Monday, Kobe uploaded the below photos to his Instagram account with the following message: Fabrizio de Togni is the master chef for Paper Moon @ladyvb24 favorite restaurant in Milano. He’s a friend and agreed to fly in for Vanessa’s bday dinner and prepare her fav dishes #eggplantparmigiano #juicyfilets #pennearrabbiata #millegrazie #PaperMoon #foodcoma #ciboitaliano Looks mighty tasty. Of course, Kobe has an affinity for all things Italian after spending much...

Note: Recently I posted a friendly letter from Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant giving advice on team leadership. Kobe recently responded. Here’s his reply.
What’s up old timer? I see you managed to pull away from the golf course and casino long enough to talk. That’s great. I’m happy to see that you’re still as cocky as you ever was. That’s the MJ...
The rift between Kobe Bryant and his mother, Pamela just got kicked up about five levels. Kobe claims that Pam stole some of the memorabilia items she sold to an auction house last January. The Auction sued Kobe for attempting to block the sale of the items. Kobe has now counter-sued Goldin Auctions, claiming that the estimated $1.5 million worth of high school items were lifted...

Kobe Bryant is back on the ground! Bryant posted a picture on Instagram Tuesday, to show us the progression he’s made with his torn Achilles tendon. The picture shows Kobe standing with the caption, “Foot on the ground.” Something tells me he’s going to be ready for the start of next season!
Check it out:

‘Sup Dawg? I know its been a minute since we’ve talked. I didn’t want to catch you while you were busy. Then again, you have a team to play for/ coach in the playoff so you never really have any free time. I just wanted to talk to you, get some things off my chest. There has been a lot of comparisons between us Kobe. A lot of people say that...
Vanessa Bryant celebrated her 31st birthday on May 5th. Even though her husband, Kobe Bryant is hobbled by recovery from his ruptured Achilles, he made sure to plan an elegant birthday dinner to surprise his wife. Kobe planned an intimate dinner party for family and friends. Plus flew in one of Vanessa’s favorite chefs, Fabrizio de Togni, from her favorite restaurant in Milan,...
Personally, the best that I’ve ever done for a girlfriend on their birthday is taking them to a nice Italian restaurant but Lakers star Kobe Bryant brought an Italian chef to cook his wife Vanessa, a special birthday dinner.
Vanessa turned 31 over the weekend and Kobe surprised her with a special birthday dinner that can be seen in the below image via his Twitter account:
This is very weird situation with Kobe and his mom. His mom seems to be upset that Vanessa’s mom got a bigger house that she has, so her way of getting payback, is stealing Kobe’s stuff and auctioning them off.
I don’t know the inner workings of the Bryant family, but regardless of what is going on behind the scenes, that seems a bit petty on her part.
Kobe is suing his mom...
Kobe Bryant fan or not, this is a must-see video if you’re an NBA fan. Made by YouTube user theperson18, the video documents Kobe’s unbelievable work ethic, the hurdles he’s overcome both mentally and psychically, and the comeback he’s about to embark on. He’s certainly one of a kind.
Kobe Bryant’s torn Achilles didn’t stop him from looking quite dashing at the 16th Annual EIF Womens Cancer Research Fundraiser, as he enrobed in a traditional black and white tuxedo by Saint Laurent. Kobe and his wife Vanessa were all smiles posing for photos, with attire which complemented each other.

Guys--correct me if I am wrong, but our wives/girlfriends like to claim that it is not the price tag on the gift that counts, but the thought right? As long as it is something that is from the heart and really shows that we care they are cool with it (supposedly).
So we do it. We put our hearts and soul into coming up with the right gift that says what we feel, but doesn&...
