On Wednesday morning, [Jonathan] Jaxson once again went on Atlanta’s airwaves to air his grievances with the Bravo reality show cast member. Jaxson appeared in studio with B98.5 FM’s Steve McCoy and Vikki Locke to announce that he’s resigned as Zolciak’s manager and publicist because “she’s a habitual liar.”
I should point out that Jonathan Jaxson is well known for manufacturing rumors and PR stunts with the full knowledge and blessing of his clients. So I wouldn't doubt it if this was just another one of his patented publicity stunts.
I met Jonathan (and his much older boyfriend) at Club Fever about three years ago when I was hired to shoot a party there.
The thing that struck me about him was how untrustworthy he was. He didn't know me from a can of paint, and yet there he was telling me all his personal business as well as the personal business of his clients! Maybe I have that affect on people, but still.
Jaxson, a Hollywood publicist-turned gossip blogger, was working for actress Lindsay Lohan at the time. He had no qualms about telling me she was a lesbian in a relationship with DJ Sam Ronson way before their relationship was even public knowledge.
Jaxson also (allegedly) gave Neffe Kim's home number to post on Twitter.com. Neffe's publicist later lied and said the Twitter account wasn't Neffe's, but we know it's her.
One more tidbit about Jaxson: he sued celebrity blogger Perez Hilton last year, accusing him of sexual harassment. I would Google to see what the outcome of that suit was, but who cares?
As most of you know, NBA star LeBron James has been busy promoting his new basketball film titled "More Than A Game." The soundtrack release party was held last night in NYC at Marquee.
Mandingo rapper Akon was there
So was the always elegantly coiffed Mary J. Blige and her husband Kendu (not pictured)
Teyana Taylor's name was misspelled in the caption, indicating that the paparazzi don't know why she's a celebrity either.
Singer/songwriter Ester Dean has a song on the soundtrack, the title of which escapes me. Hopefully I'll be able to remember the next song she puts out or she'll be put in the same category as "Tiana" Taylor.
Lamar Odom's baby mama Liza Morales is just as surprised as we are that the NBA star is tying the knot with TV personality Khloe Kardashian. Morales is clueless as to the reason behind Lamar and Khloe's mad dash to the alter (she's not pregnant, so they say).
Morales, who was once engaged to Odom, told E! Online in an exclusive interview that she got the news in a text message from a friend so she thought it was a joke. "I knew they were dating, because, like everybody else saw, they were going all of these places they could be seen. So that's how I found out they were dating. It's just really, really shocking," she tells E! News. "Everybody, and I quote, 'everybody' is shocked by this."
Morales said she would not be attending the weeding, but her daughter Destiny has met Khloe while her son declined to meet her.
Odom, 29, began dating Liza Morales when they were both just 17, and they've had three children together: Destiny, 11, Lamar Jr., 8, and Jayden, who died of SIDS at age 7 months in 2006. The high school sweethearts split two years ago.
Morales, who now lives in New York City with the two children, says Destiny has met the E! star, but Lamar Jr. "chose not to." The family won't be making a last-minute trip to California to witness the union.
"I would definitely say it is moving too fast," Morales says. "I think that marriage is a life commitment and it is not something you rush into. You can't think about the wedding. You have to think about the marriage and what that consists of. This is not a fabulous pair of shoes, or a fabulous custom-made suit we are talking about. So I would definitely say he is acting on impulse."

You know you're 15 minutes are up when the wire services no longer include your name in the photo captions. Former First Lady of Turks & Caicos, LisaRay McCoy, needs a new acting gig fast if she has any hopes of reclaiming her C-list status. These pics of LisaRaye and her BFF Li'l Kim were listed by the wire service as "Lil Kim and friends." The two ladies frolicked in the surf on Miami Beach and let their weave catch the wind on the back of a Jetski.
Former NY Giants WR Plaxico Burress's name will be replaced with a number now that he's in the system for the next two years.
After hearing his sentence in a Manhattan courtroom, Burress was immediately taken into custody. He tenderly kissed his pregnant wife and young son goodbye and hugged his tearful parents as he was led out of the courtroom.
The star receiver was transported to Riker's Island for processing. According to TMZ.com, the star athlete ate alone in his cell last night. He dined on hot dogs, beans, whole wheat bread and fruit. For breakfast he'll get fruit, grits, whole wheat bread and his choice of coffee or tea. Then, later today, he will be transferred to Fishkill Correctional Facility in upstate New York where he will serve out his sentence.
Burress was convicted on a weapon charge after a gun that he illegally concealed in his waistband discharged wounding him in his thigh last November. The accident occurred inside a crowded NY nightclub. The police weren't notified until Burress sought treatment for his injury at a local hospital.
Of course, the very Reverend Al Sharpton had something to say about yet another black athlete getting the shaft (so to speak). According to TMZ.com, Sharpton is coming out swinging against Plaxico Burress' 2-year prison sentence -- claiming Plax's punishment is "way out of proportion with the crime."
"I think it is an unusually harsh sentence for someone who was his own victim. He should be punished but his sentence is way out of proportion with the crime.
Celebrities should not be given special treatment but they should not be given exceptional punishments either." Read more...
Great points of view by sports journalist Stephen A. Smith, who says he's extremely uncomfortable with Barack Obama's attempts to take over the auto, banking and now health care industry.
Smith says those Kool Aid drinkers who are comfortable with Obama's policies must be ignorant to the issues. I totally agree with Mr. Smith, who admits he voted for Obama from a historical perspective (read: because he was black).
But Smith says he comes to regret his decision because of Obama's radical attempts to take over health care and other big industry.
"People may have advocated... government intervention in terms of supervising things and making sure that we all are operating under a fair and equitable system. But I don't recall anybody, and I do mean anybody, that has ever walked into the black community and advocated a government takeover of anything!
We may all need assistance, but a takeover is an entirely different situation altogether, and I'm extremely uncomfortable with it and I'm even more uncomfortable with the fact that race has become a part of the discussion."
Smith goes on to say that acting as if race is as prevalent as it was decades ago is completely untrue and that way of thinking only serves to divide this nation.
In the past week, I've received emails from readers who insist that Obama's dismal approval numbers (39%) is due to racism. But the reality is that Obama received 69% of the popular vote (meaning, white vote).
It's amazing that the same people who celebrated the fact that a majority of whites voted for Obama, are now calling those same whites racists because they woke up and now realize that Obama is not the man they thought they were voting for.
Kudos to Stephen A. Smith for being courageous enough to speak his mind on that fraud in the White House!
Once again the Obama administration is up to no good.
On September 10, the Wihte House announced that the communications director for the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts), Yogi Sergant, would be "reassigned" to another position. The reason:
Yosi Sergant (with Obama's blessings) tried to use a government agency to unduly influence the public and to promote Obama's legislative agenda. All of this came to light because of a phone call placed by Sargent to artists -- including a rep for Russell Simmons -- who were asked to help Obama push his health care agenda. A political no-no.
Everything went well until the White House and the media learned the phone call was secretly taped by one of the participating artists. Yosi's "reassignment" was announced just days after another White House radical, Van Jones, resigned under fire.
You can read the transcript of the phone call and listen to the audio HERE.
After denying any wrongdoing, the White House issued a formal memo for White House staff to let them know that "Government agencies are not supposed to be engaged in political activities."
Gee, you would think the White House staff already knew that rule?
White House spokesman Bill Burton told ABC News, "It is the policy of the administration that grant decisions should be on the merits and that government officials should avoid even creating the incorrect appearance that politics has anything to do with these decisions."
Burton also said that White House officials were "enacting specific steps to make sure such a call never happens again."
Or at least to make sure that no one is secretly recording such a call.
