Legal problems, schmegal shproblems!
Showtime IS planning on showing the documentary about Venus and Serena Williams, basically giving a middle finger to the U.S. Tennis Association, because they want the U.S. District Court in NY to ban it! Instead, Showtime is showing it on August 23! Ha!
Why does the USTA want it banned?
Bad news, twin and tennis lovers! Venus Williams has pulled out of Wimbledon!!
That's right, half of the Williams sisters has had to drop out of the Wimbledon Championships because she hurt her lower back. The injury is in addition to having the chronic autoimmune disease Sjogren's syndrome — which is hard enough to deal with. She's one tough woman, but she isn't stupid. We agree that it's a better idea to sit out than fight through!
Here's what she said about her decision:
Being two of the best tennis players in the world is NOT easy! Just ask the Williams sisters!
Serena and Venus are both hard at work overseas competing in the Internazionali BNL d'Italia tournament in Italy! But the girls decided to take a little break from the action and hit the streets do a little shopping!
As Ron Burgundy would say, "When in Rome!" LOLz!
Serena continues to show why she's the number 1 female tennis player in the world and is cruising along to the quarterfinals! Venus, on the other hand, had an early exit after she was defeated by Laura Robson in the 1st round!
Nothing like a little retail therapy to take you're mind off a tough loss, right ladies? Besides, from the looks of bags she's carrying it's not like she's going home empty handed! Ha!

The BET Awards are going high class this year.
Between Rihanna's Diamonds and Justin Timberlake's Suit & Tie, it sounds like host Chris Tucker is really going to be putting on the ritz!
Naturally, Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar were also up for awards for their work this year, while Chris Brown, who was on hand at the announcement ceremony, is once again up for Best Male R&B Artist.
Drake should get the honorary team player award- he's featured on FOUR of the noms for Best Collaboration!
You can see the full list of nominees in all categories …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
They've been around so long that we don't even really stop to think about it very much: Venus Williams and Serena Williams are sisters!
Everyone knows that, but just THINK about it for a second!
What does that do to your life and identity? How does your relationship hold up to all of that? How do you not become bitter enemies??
Well, it turns out that they're both the best of friends… and the biggest rivals!
Here's what Venus had to say:

This has to be the cutest thing ever!!!
When Venus Williams isn't busy inspiring future tennis stars, she's taking pics with fans, and we think it's adorable!
The tennis star caught up with some of her followers at Serious Tennis in Atlanta, and even though girlfriend was towering over all of the lovely ladies (above), we still loved how much of a good sport she was…
Especially because everyone was smiling from ear to ear!!
Ch-ch-check out Venus and her biggest fans (above)!

We know that Venus William's racket has incredible accuracy, but so does her tongue!
We're not quite sure when Venus decided to take up Tonsil Hockey as a sport professionally, but DAMN is she good at it! At 32, she's constantly practicing in public with her boyfriend, Cuban model Elio Pis — who is even 8 years her junior!
That's coooool, get it gurl!
Who says a lady can't date a guy a lot younger than her?? Just proves that she knows how to WERK!
Hope all is well, lovebirds!
