CALL THEM Pennsylvania's first couple?
South Philly's own Amber Rose has tied the knot with Pittsburgh-born and -bred rapper Wiz Khalifa. In an interview with the Daily News' Jenice Armstrong, Rose, who formerly dated Kanye West, referred to Khalifa as her soul mate.
Khalifa and Rose already have a child together, Sebastian "The Bash" Taylor Thomaz, born in February. The couple kept the nuptials quiet until yesterday, when Khalifa tweeted, "Me and Amber got married today. Weddings this fall. Thought I'd let yall know." The fall "wedding" is presumably the public ceremony.
The model/singer once worked at Delilah's Den, where she danced under the name Paris.
Weatherman Kirk Clyatt, who worked at WB17 from 2003 to 2005 and NBC10 from 2002 to 2003, was assaulted by a group of people while he was on a late-night run in Harrisburg. The current CBS21 employee was running near the Capitol about 2 a.m. Sunday, when he was assaulted, along with another man, by a group of four men and one woman. The 6-foot-4 Clyatt never believed he was in danger, but is now considering changing his running routes because of rising crime in Harrisburg. "Unfortunately, this just puts Harrisburg in a bad light," Clyatt told me. "The state has to step in and do something for the state capital."
Hepp's baby joy
Congrats to "Good Day Philadelphia" anchor Karen Hepp who gave birth to a son on Friday. Kellen Alexander Sullivan was born at 2:48 a.m. at the Bryn Mawr Birth Center, weighing in at 8 pounds 5 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. Kellen is Hepp's third child with husband Brian Sullivan, an insurance executive. Kellen joins big brothers Quinn, 6, and Macklin, 3. Hepp, who used to work at NBC10, went on maternity leave June 28. She'll be back after Labor Day.
Duncan goes national
After only three years at CBS3, reporter Jericka Duncan is moving on up to the network. Duncan, who joined the station from Buffalo, N.Y., will be part of CBS' Newspath coverage. (Think of Newspath like the Associated Press of CBS networks, with a team providing national news coverage for CBS' local affiliates.)
Last year, Duncan was named Journalist of the Year by the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists. Duncan's last day at CBS3 was Friday.
Duncan isn't the only Philly name who's recently gone to the network level. Former NBC10 reporter Aditi Roy was recently picked up by ABC.
