Remember when singer/songriter Ne-Yo broke down and cried like a B onstage during a recent concert in England? His excuse was that he lost his voice or some ish. Well, we got word that Ne-Yo lost more than his voice, he lost his longtime girlfriend/beard, Tenille.

For an artist or industry cat, finding a good loyal beard like Jessica these days can be pretty rough. Just ask Eddie Murphy and Jay Z.

A good beard must be more than just a pretty face, she must be disciplined and discrete. But above all, she must be willing to keep her mouth shut long after they part ways. There are no pre-nup agreements between stars and their beards. Their word is their bond and the trust runs deep. No wonder Ne-Yo was crying! I almost feel sorry for the guy.

This past week, Ne-Yo partied the night away at a midtown nightclub. Sources say Ne-Yo drowned his sorrows in the arms of a variety of women. But at the end of the night, he left the club alone.

As MM points out, the Obama administration’s ambitious ‘Cash for Clunkers’ federal rebate program failed after only 3 days.

It wasn’t just the fact that the program ran out of money to buy back junk cars in exchange for gas efficient ones in only 3 days — it’s worse than that. The truth is, the Obama administration doesn’t have a clue what they’re doing.

The cash ran out because there was a woeful lack of planning, budgeting and strategizing on the part of the administration. Once again we get excuses from the White House as to why their bills or programs just don’t work:

The Obama administration is attempting to use the fact that the program was popular with consumers as evidence that it was a “success,” but that only serves as evidence of government incompetence. Unfortunately for Obama & Company, many people are aware that sometimes “too successful” is far more expensive than “didn’t work at all.” READ MORE…

So add the ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program to the growing heap of failures for the Obama administration. And then try to imagine what ObamaCare will be like if it passes.

Pop singers Rihanna and Katy Perry sucked on Sugar Factory Couture lollipops while attending a post concert party at The Griffin in NYC on Tuesday. They make Couture lollipops now? And how did I miss these pics?

Rihanna stopped by the Tom Ford flagship store on Madison Ave in NYC today. Tom Ford is where RiRi gets all her fly azz, custom frames that you and I can’t get. She’s so lucky.

OK I’m kidding about the Ryan Cameron Morning Show, lol. Actually Ryan, who hosts the popular Ryan Cameron Show in the drive time slot on WVEE in Atlanta, is subbing all this week for the Kang, Frank Ski, who along with Wanda Smith and Miss Sophia, helms the popular Frank & Wanda Morning Show.

Party planner Anthony, who also goes by the names Tony Shorter and Tyson, called in to the show this morning to speak with Ryan to clear the air about his much-publicized bitch fight with “fashion designer” Sheree Whitfield from last night’s premiere of RHOA.

In an email to Sandrarose.com yesterday, Anthony stated that the producers of the show hired him — not Sheree — to coordinate her so-called “Divorce party” into his Atlanta Music Festival back in March. Obviously Anthony was set up to fail from the very beginning.

Note to aspiring singers: don’t wait around for a label to discover you and sign you to a record deal where they get 95% of the profits. Make your own music videos and mixtapes. Then upload your music online. The music industry is dead.

NFL star (and beau of Antonia “Toya” Carter) James Hardy writes:

I am shocked and disappointed by people’s efforts to destroy my character. I am a God-fearing man, and I would never place my hands on the mother of my child or my son. In fact, my son has been an inspiration to me and to my accomplishments and I hold deep respect for my former girlfriend for raising my son. As in many relationships, my ex-girlfriend and I had an argument that was blown out of proportion. My ex-girlfriend called the police and I was arrested. As a student athlete, I did not have the money to defend myself in a criminal trial; therefore, I agreed to take part in a six-month diversion program.

As a result, the charges were dismissed and at the hearing on June 13, 2007, my ex-girlfriend recanted her statements and testified that she phoned 911 in an effort to “get at” me for the problems we were having in the relationship at the time. During the time of the incident, our relationship was being affected due to my hectic athletic schedule.This incident took place three years ago when I was a college student at Indiana University.

Currently, I am a professional athlete who realizes that children look up to me and that I have a duty to conduct myself appropriately. As partners in parenting, my ex-girlfriend and I maintain an amicable relationship. I have moved on and am happy with my life. Despite the negative media coverage, I am striving to achieve my maximum potential in life and focus on my career.

Local authorities have released raw footage from surveillance cameras that allegedly captured images of two suspects being sought in the murder and robbery of boxing champion Vernon Forrest last weekend. According to the AJC, police believe up to four men were involved in the murder.

Forrest and his 11-year-old Godson are seen on surveillance video in his Jaguar as they pulled into a gas station on Whitehall Street in Southwest Atlanta on Saturday night. Forrest put air in his tires as his Godson, who is the only eyewitness, went inside the convenience store to buy a bag of chips and use the restroom. The gas station surveillance camera captures a red Pontiac Grand Prix or Grand Am pulling up to a pump. A black man is seen getting out of the passenger side and walking directly behind Forrest.

The man is armed and demands Forrest’s Rolex watch and a diamond ring. As the man walked away, Forrest retrieved a licensed .45 caliber weapon from under his driver’s seat and gave chase on foot South on McDaniel Street and across the I-20 overpass.

Police believe Forrest lost sight of the suspect at the corner of McDaniel and Fulton Streets. The suspect was then caught on surveillance video as he ran past the front door of 505 Fulton Street apartments and then again as he ran behind the building where he is seen opening an unlocked security gate and entering a hallway.

The robbery suspect was wearing jeans, a black t-shirt and carrying a shiny handgun. Another surveillance camera captured the same man cowering nervously in the hallway near a locked security gate while talking on a cell phone. Police believe Forrest caught up with a second man who probably acted as look out at the gas station. The two exchanged words but the man was able to convince Forrest that he wasn’t the one who robbed him. When Forrest turned to leave, the man pulled a gun and shot Forrest 7 to 8 times in the back and head. Forrest died at the scene.

After the shooting, the driver of the red Pontiac picked up both the robber and the shooter. The Pontiac then drove South on McDaniel Street.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Atlanta Police Department at 404-577-TIPS (8477)

Last night I spent the better part of an hour scouring blogs and news gathering websites for images of Barack Hussein Obama consuming beer at the so-called “beer summit” yesterday. Needless to say, I couldn’t find any. Oh, there were plenty of pics of Obama leaning back in his lawn chair (supposedly after a hard day’s work) nursing a mug of Bud Light sitting on the table in front of him. But no pics of him actually downing a cold one.

That’s odd… Was Sergeant James Crowley the only one captured on film hoisting a mug of suds to his lips during the “beer summit”? Was that the intended outcome — to get images of the cop drinking beer, but not the president, the vice president Joe Biden, or the race baiting Harvard professor Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr. whose loose lips sparked a firestorm of race debates in this country?

Maybe Obama’s handlers didn’t want to see any more images like this one. Maybe they reminded O that it isn’t cool or presidential to be photographed in public sipping brew. Not when teenagers are still drinking and driving and killing themselves at alarming rates. Best to do all his swigging behind closed doors like George Bush did.

Barack Obama will go down in history as the least popular president to ever occupy the White House. Today Obama sat down for a beer with his pal, race baiter Henry Louis “Skip” Gates and the white officer who arrested Gates two weeks ago. Is this what you voted him in office for? To promote alcoholism?

Everyone I spoke with said they would have refused Obama’s invitation to sit down for a beer after referring to them as stupid. One friend told me that Obama’s photo ops are more important to him than promoting abstinence and responsibility.
