Atlanta’s own Monica threw a private birthday bash for her fiance Rocko last night at Straits and all of Atlanta’s elite came through to wish Rocko a happy birthday. The event was held at the restaurant owned by Mo’s cousin Ludacris who turned his restaurant over to Mo for the night.

Family and close friends dined on Asian delicacies in the private upstairs VIP area while guests networked in the lounge downstairs. Even though the party was private, word got out and it was standing room only for the rest of the night. Everyone had a ball!

You might read rumors on other blogs about T.I. snatching up Tiny and dragging her out into the parking lot where a shouting match ensued. But don’t believe any of it. Fighting in public is so not like them.

  • bonnie

    Why do guys insist on taking pictures with their wives/fiances/baby mama’s and the guys have them ganked around the neck? Isn’t that a possession thing? I find that so irritating. Then I see he does it with the fellas in the next picture so maybe that is a him thing.

    @Kym..that is a hilarious story! I only know about Pastor Troy because my brother would blast his music ALL day long. I would wake up with the walls rattling. This is how I got introduced to him, UGK, Eightball & MJG..

  • shunda

    Morning Fam!!!!!!!1

  • iscream

    Does Rocco rap? Act? Sing? I’ve never heard of him outside of being Mo’s baby Daddy. And look at Sheree from atl housewives. I didn’t know she was a close friend of Mo’s.

  • goat76

    I don’t believe TIP’s Federal Agent would let that happen……..next!!!!

  • ReadTheBlog

    Will someone please tell Jazzy Phae to stop wearing red like that? He looks like the Kool-Aid man!

    I don’t believe TI snatched TIny up – I do believe that Tiny snatched TI up. If yall remember, he was running from Tiny back when he used to mess with Hoopz…I mean I belive he’s a scardey cat – look at the arsenal of guns he got caught with :-)

    Tiny, handle your business you damned hood rat, you :-)

  • melinla

    Good Morning fam…looks like a good time was had by all.

  • Lisa

    Monica seems really cool I love her I do, but and I hate to go here…Monica the red has got to go. You are too cute for that, but then again you are just chilling in the A, but when you come out with your new album dye it all black, keep the hair short and please give us some jams!!!! I’ll be waiting.

  • mizzdallas

    Lmao @ Readtheblog

    whats up with this red kool-aid ish, is this in style now?

  • coaretained

    I like the red on monica actually.

    GM fam!

  • ReadTheBlog

    Monica looks high… Y’all should call the police because Jazzy Phae’s neck is missing. I know that man has to have sleep apnea. Lord forgive me, but I’m not lying.

    Sandra, who does Monica’s hair and makeup? Post their name and website – they do a good job.

  • CaramelDrop

    Hey Goat/Yvonne79/Kym/Shunda/Divine!!!!!!!

  • CaramelDrop

    HEY COA!!!

    I agree Monica is rocking that Red!!!! She definitely represented at the party

  • goat76

    Howdy Caramel………

  • Sharonda

    I think short hair really suits Mo.Her makeup is pretty!Someone mentioned that but I co-sign on that!

  • shunda

    Hey Caramel!

    Why does Monica’s brother always wear that darn rag on his head?

  • http://myspace.com/lorettadivine DivineBrown

    Murnin CaramelD!!!

    I like Mo’s hair too. I think it’s the style that makes it hot.

  • ckarinwhite

    Good Morning!!!!…

  • Kymystry

    Mornin CKarin !! .. enjoyin your break ?

  • http://myspace.com/erikamagaly Hermosa

    OMG, Tiny actually looks pretty in that pic with her kool-aid hair!

  • Naima

    This is the elite of Atlanta? Ghetto Fab

  • lovezoe

    Does Tiny have lip injections? All of these “ATL” girls are pretty, but they make themselves look so ghetto. I just do not understand.

  • Naima

    Monica still got that “Don’t Take it Personal” money I see.

  • http://myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    Good Morning fam!!

    Oh … Mo looks so HAPPY! She has that GLO people yearn for in these pics.

    I am trying to ignore Jazze … why is he so insistent w/ the red bell pepper look? I just can’t and won’t … I am trying to ignore him.

    @ Herm … I was thinking the same thing bout Tiny. She doesn’t look as bad as she ususally does.

  • Mississippi16

    Morning Er’body!

    Tiny looks cute.

    Monica (whose music I absolutely love and can’t wait to hear more)hair is okay but that color makes her look a little hard.

    As for TI and his situation, i hope that he didn’t drag her into the parking lot… but every couple has disagreements from time to time and why should they be any different. It’s easy for blogs to take a simple disagreement and exaggerate it into a full fight w/ two black eyes and a broken rib.

  • http://myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    Dead @ “ganked around the neck?”

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    lol iyonah u leave jazze alone 2

  • thundercat

    @ mizzdallas
    Thanks for the update. I wasnt sure.

  • heartbreaker

    I can believe TI dragged Tiny out of the club. He use to talk to one of my friends in 04-05 and chocked her ass up one night in the club over some dumb ****. He is very possessive!!! Even with his jump offs!! LOL Yes, Sandra I know my girl was a jump off :-)

  • http://myspace.com/iyonah iyonah

    @eastpoint — I am trying but come on now … he needs to hire a nutritionist or something. I am genuinely concerened about his health … he is talented and young. He should be making every effort to LIVE. Alright, well let me say I hope he is making every effort, since I don’t know him personally. I just know he seems to have gotten quite SWOLLEN over the YEARS!

  • ckarinwhite

    Kym- Yes, I am!!!…this is the last week of winter break…I am already well rested, so I will be energized on Jan. 5th….

  • sexyma078

    Monica is definatly getting her grown woman on….Shere shrit has a personality disorder….TI and TINY–Midget fighting in the parking lot, thats sad….but it’s funny how sandra act like they here first cousin….”oh they don;t do that” sure they dont!

  • CaramelDrop

    Hey ckarin!!!!

    Hey Iyonah!!!!! I hope you enjoyed your 4 day weekend I think that Iyonah’s comment was the nicest way to say: YOUR FAT ASS NEEDS TO GO ON A DIET JAZZY! LOL

  • Daisy

    @DB TI always looks good enough to eat makes no darn sense to have that much swagger with his cute self.

  • Daisy

    Aww say it aint so about my baby TI he can’t keep his hand to himself.lol I don’t have time for woman beaters with his skinny azz.

  • Daisy

    Also am I the only one who thinks Devine is suspect?

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    @Daisy..no,not at all!!!

  • KaraZ

    Fiance usually leads to marriage, she might as well refer to him as baby daddy at this point.

    Sheree looks too mannish, tiny needs to come up with an alternative to this cotton candy ish she calls hair.

  • srv

    Did SR just use revers psychology to put TIP’s business in the streets??? I looked it up and I don’t see any sites reporting such…Thanks for letting us know how they really get down!!

  • coaretained

    **waving @ my boo caramel**
    sorry I’m “tardy to the party”, wrapping up my trip details!

    @srv I was thinking the same thing cause ya KNOW I’m looking. Let me find out he’s a woman beater… Tiny can have him, I’ll end my pursuit. :) Maybe…

  • Ilovepink1981

    For those of you who can’t get enough of Mr. Kool Aide, he is on this new show called “Welcome to Dreamland” on peachtree TV. I am not sure what it is exactly about but it looks interesting.. at least until the new episodes of House and ATL housewives come on

  • netta0281

    did you all see ti and shawty lo at the same event

  • shanie

    Tiny looks like she has been getting botox shots in her lips. They are looking real swollen.

  • srv

    Yeah…Tiny should def lay off the lip augmentations. That mixed with the large veneers can be bad business. When her lips are smaller..her teeth look better. But hey, she’s vying for wife number 8 on Real Housewives I guess…the one with the real cheese :-)
