The other night, I spoke to Dorian of BET's College Hill by phone. He's such a charming young man. He and I are going to become fast friends.
Anyway, young Dorian hipped me to the fact that his fellow cast member Shavon had emailed me once. He said I also posted her pics on my site.
For some reason I could not recall ever writing about her. He tried his best to help me remember, but I kept drawing a blank. Then last night I did a search on my site and found this.
I had no clue that Shavon on College Hill was the same young lady who some say allegedly dated rapper Young Dro in the past.
So we now know that at least two female cast members of College Hill are suspect Star Searchers. Y'all already know about young Ashley R, who I'm told dated nothing but singers as far back as high school when she was a straight A student at Stephenson high in Atlanta.
Her high school classmates recall the parade of young male singers that Ashley dated before finally settling on a member of the group "One Chance" who was seemingly destined for bigger and better things.
The question is, did BET cast a wide net into the murky waters of Atlanta's underbelly of celebrity groupies and Star searchers who had connections to rappers and video directors? Was being fast and loose in the industry a prerequisite for being cast on the show?
Couldn't BET find any good, clean, wholesome students on the Spelman campus to represent our black college students? It seems I'm not the only one questioning BET's motives.
Anyway, Ashley posted a lengthy note on her Myspace page in response to my post yesterday. I won't repost it here because that's what she wants. I will say she comes off as articulate and bright in her note which indicates she was sobered up from the night before.
But the offer still stands if she wants to speak to me and give her side of the story. This would be the best time to do it while the big hand is only on the 2 on her 15-minute clock.
Thanks to loyal reader Ill Nana for the tip!
