The rapper MaryJane, who served a restraining order on NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal last year, has apparently buried the hatchet with her “ex-boyfriend”.
MaryJane is sporting a new Superman tattoo on her left shoulder and, as you know, “Superman” is just one of many nicknames given to Shaq by the media
MJ’s rep stated in an email:
We hope you can post them as soon as possible and let everyone know that MaryJANE’s long awaited album will be coming soon, and as far Shaq well lets just say they have settled differences and Ms MJ has a tattoo revealed on her left arm to show that!
MaryJane’s rep also promised she will do an interview to explain what all of that means.
I guess I can lift my “no interviews” policy just this once. So stay tuned!
I just received an important warning of a malicious attempt to spread a virus /trojan using a popular industry executive’s gmail account.

Ann Coulter appeared on The View yesterday to promote her new book.
I find it interesting that the controversial right wing author thinks single mothers contribute to the escalating crime rate and the general decline of morals in this country.
And by “single mothers” you know she means black women. Funny thing is, I was going to post a video last week from a brother named Thugtician who basically lectures black men to stay away from black single mothers for the same reasons that Ann Coulter spouts.
Since I’m posting the video from yesterday’s The View, I might as well post his video too.
Thugtician makes some valid points. He theorizes that communities with households run by women tends to breed hordes of aimless, backward, under achieving men with no purpose in life.
On the other hand, in communities where the women know their role and respect the man as the head of the home ….
Never mind. Forget it. In an effort to remain positive and non-opinionated this year, I won’t share my views on this subject.
Exclusive Access sent in these pics from rapper Yung Joc’s current tour. ExclusiveAccess has been traveling with the rapper and last night they were in Chicago. It must be nice.
I recall last year while attending a party at Frank Ski’s stately manse, I asked Joc if I could go out on the road with him. I’m paraphrasing his reply because I don’t recall the exact words. He said:
“Any time you want to come on the road with me, just let me know. Even if the label says no, I will make it happen.”
I thought that was so sweet of Joc. He’s such a nice guy!
I still tell the story about the time he was performing at Vision nightclub and he was making it rain by throwing ones into the crowd. Yung Joc reached into his pocket and pulled out a 50 dollar bill and handed it to me.
Yung Joc is currently on tour with DTP rapper Shawnna. Last night they stopped in Chicago where Exclusive Access snapped these pics. Chicago is bitterly cold this time of year but Shawnna is hawt! Peep the female with the rough hands behind Shawnna holding her drink. Photos by ExclusiveAccess.net
Yesterday I posted the dates and times for the Bad Boy private screenings of “Notorious” just for my readers. The screenings were held in select cities last night and I hear the Atlanta screening was celebrity-studded. I know for a fact the 3 Brown Girls (minus Kim Porter) was in the audience at the old Buckhead backlot theater. Kelly Rowland showed up at the Miami, Florida premiere. Her smile lit up the theater! I never told you that Kelly’s mom lived in the Buckhead apartment complex that I moved out of last year. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
NFL star Terrell Owens was also in the audience at the Miami showing. Photo: Wireimage/Getty
Wendy Williams? Nope. Talk show host Tyra Banks attended Oxygen’s launch party for “America’s Top Model: OBSESSED” last night in NYC. Speaking of Wendy, what ever happened to that Wendy Williams flick that was supposed to hit theaters last year? Did I miss it? Photo: Splash News Online
Danity Kane’s Dawn Richard attended the launch party for “America’s Top Model: OBSESSED” last night in NYC. I almost didn’t recognize her. Hate the dress, LOVE the shoes and nails. Photo: Wireimage/Getty

It was bound to happen sooner or later, a down low NBA player was outed in dramatic fashion by his limo driver who accuses the 6-foot-11 baller of “repeatedly” approaching him for sexual favors.
The court papers filed in Manhattan provide scintillating insight into the world of wealthy down low men. Chauffeur David Kuchinsky accuses the married father of three, of appearing before him “in the nude,” and allegedly telling him, “Look at me, Dave, look” and “Come and touch it, Dave.”
Kuchinsky further alleges he was asked to perform humiliating tasks for his $68,000 a year salary such as “cleaning up and removing dirty towels [Curry had ejaculated into] so that his wife would not see them,”.
Kuchinsky, who is Jewish, said Curry subjected him to a barrage of racial insults during the three years he worked for Curry. Kuchinsky says he was initially hired as an around-the-clock chauffeur for Curry and his family at their Burr Ridge, Ill., mansion.
But shortly after starting work, he soon found his duties fell well outside his job description and “progressively became Curry’s “house-boy,'” his suit says.
He is seeking $98,000 plus compensatory damages from the injured Knick, whose contract pays him $9.4 million this year. (LINK)
Naturally, Curry declined to comment. How embarrassing for his wife and kids.
‘Real Housewives’ Sheree Whitfield and her attorneys have dropped a divorce appeal after coming to the conclusion that her ex-husband really is broke.
According to Sheree’s attorney, the former NFL player hasn’t paid child support in 15 months and still owes Sheree $350,000.
In their 2005 divorce trial, a Fulton county judge awarded Sheree custody of the couple’s two children, $2,142 a month in child support, a lump sum payment of $775,000 in cash and shares of four NFL retirement accounts.
Bob Whitfield, 37, was awarded the family’s $2.4 million, 5,900-square-foot home in Sandy Springs and his recording studio, in addition to other properties.
To date, Whitfield has paid $425,000 of the $775,000 owed. But Sheree quickly ran through that money and found she could not maintain the lifestyle she felt she deserved on just $2,142 a month.
But Whitfield’s lawyer, Christopher Olmstead, complained that Sheree was wasting the court’s time with a frivolous lawsuit. He requested she be ordered to pay his attorney fees plus penalties. “This is an affront to the court,” Olmstead said.
Sheree and her attorneys dropped the appeal now that Whitfield’s mansion is in foreclosure and scheduled to be sold on the courthouse steps.
Sheree’s attorney claimed the divorce appeal was filed for legitimate reasons but the issue is now moot because Whitfield is broke. (LINK)
Thanks to loyal reader Darcy Campbell for the tip!
The Inman Park franchise of The Grape that pop star Usher opened to widespread publicity in late 2006 has closed, according to its parent company. The shop — a wine bar, bistro and wine retailer rolled into one — did not reopen in the New Year and did not renew its liquor license with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Currently, three local branches of the Grape remain: in the Vinings Jubilee shopping center, Phipps Plaza and Atlantic Station. The Atlanta-based Grape Enterprise Group Inc., which both owns and franchises shops mostly throughout the Southeast, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. Its franchise locations, such as the one in Inman Park, were not party to the filing.
When Raymond Usher IV first met with reporters at the opening of the Inman Park branch wearing a cabernet-purple blazer, he spoke of opening franchises in locales as far flung as Shanghai and South America. Those plans never came to fruition.
A request for comment from Usher’s publicist was not returned by the time of publication. (link)
