Vivica A. Fox is looking for a few good stylists

According to Vivica A. Fox‘s publicist Kim Tumey, Vivica is looking for a few good stylists for her new reality show on VH1.

    Vivica A. Fox, actress, producer and fashion luminary, is bringing her celebrity style to VH1 for a new competition series ripped from the pages of the fashion magazines.The new series, “Glam God With Vivica A. Fox” slated to premiere August 2008, searches for the next great celebrity stylist who has what it takes to become the stylist to the stars through their ability to create a chic masterpiece using the three key elements of fashion — hair, make-up and wardrobe.Each week the “stylista” contestants will be asked to compete in various challenges that will test their knowledge of fashion and style trends as they create the perfect look from head to toe. Those that fall short of creating that perfect look will have their style license revoked and will be sent packing. The one stylist that manages to rise above the rest will be given the ultimate reward — the chance to launch a career by styling an A-list celebrity and being awarded $100,000.

Video: Atlanta man arrested for impersonating a doctor

An Atlanta man was arrested for impersonating a Piedmont hospital doctor. The sad part is his wife, who he met last year at a club, dropped him off every morning at Piedmont hospital (he didn’t have a car?)

Two things she did wrong: 1) she married a guy she met in a nightclub, 2) she married a guy who couldn’t scrape two coins together to buy his own transportation. Atlanta is full of losers like this guy who hook up with desperate women willing to take care of them. Stop enabling these LOSERS, ladies!

R. Kelly Witness Returns to Atlanta

The woman who prosecutors say could blow the R. Kelly child molestation case wide open returned to Atlanta yesterday after her scheduled testimony was delayed for two days.

Lisa Van Allen, 27, is the prosecution’s star witness who allegedly had a three-way sexual encounter with Kelly and the 13-year old girl at the center of the case against Kelly. Allen is expected to return to Chicago to testify on Monday.

Allen’s testimony was delayed because the defense flew in a witness from Atlanta who, according to the judge, could undermine her credibility.

The defense witness, Damon Pryor, arrived in Chicago on Wednesday night at the expense of R. Kelly. Once in Chicago, Pryor refused to give the prosecution his Social Security number for a background check to verify he is who he says he is.

Photo of the Day: Michael Jordan is Feeling No Pain

Looks like Michael Jordan has trouble holding his liquor. I’m willing to bet this pic was taken at a party where the only melanin in the room was Michael himself. You see, Michael refuses to allow any of “us” to snap shots of him when he’s partying in black clubs.

That’s why you never see him partying with “us”. Oh, but trust me, Mike parties. He was in Atlanta last month partying every night of the week. But not one of “us” were allowed to take any pics of him. I’m not sure why. Maybe he doesn’t want his corporate pals to see him slumming? That’s typical of a corporate coon like Mike.

Shout out to loyal reader April for the pic!

Did 50 Cent’s baby mama torch his home?

That’s the question fire investigators are wondering today after Fiddy’s Long Island home burned to the ground last night.

According to an article in today’s NY Post, the case is being referred to the arson squad “because of the intensity of the fire, and also being that who belongs to the house.”

    The blaze occurred just days after a heated confrontation inside the woman’s attorney’s office over the home. 50 Cent does not live in the home and apparently wasn’t there at the time.

    Six people inside the Dix Hills home were taken to a hospital suffering smoke inhalation. Police later said they were treated and released. A firefighter also suffered a minor eye injury, officials said.

    Investigators from the Suffolk County arson squad were called to the scene after Dix Hills Fire Chief Larry Feld deemed the blaze suspicious. The fire was reported at 4:59 a.m. and was extinguished about 45 minutes later, Feld said. READ MORE…

Hollywood socialite Christina Milian added a touch of style and grace to the the Kari Feinstein MTV Movie Awards Style Lounge held at a private residence in LA yesterday (5/29). Socialite is a term I give to people who are celebrities for no apparent reason. We still don’t know why she’s famous, but does it matter in today’s Hollywood?

The only thing keeping Hollywood socialite Keisha Whitaker from blowing away are her clothes. As you know, she’s Forest’s wife. I thought black men liked their women with a little meat on their bones?

Hollywood socialite Rashida Jones is an actress now? Okay…

Diana’s daughter Tracee Ellis Ross attended Chanel’s Concept Boutique opening in LA yesterday. Tracee is rocking the Christian Louboutin pumps. Here’s a little secret: Tracee and Ludacris dated for a hot minute. Chanel is really stepping their brand game up in Hollywood, I see. They have everybody wearing their line.
