I spoke with a few industry people yesterday on the phone, and not one person mentioned Mariah Carey was pregnant with husband Nick Cannon’s seed. Not one.
I guess that’s what happens when your album doesn’t do well on the charts in the U.S. That also explains why celebs leave the US to live in London where they’re are much more appreciated than in this fly-by-night industry.
Anyway, congrats to Mariah and Nick! I hope it’s a boy. I would also like to take this time to congratulate my attorney Precious Anderson-Scott of The Anderson Firm, who is expecting her first child with husband Kashka Scott!
A blogger, who shall go unnamed, Photoshopped this pic comparing Rihanna to the Alien species in the classic ‘Alien’ flicks from back in the day.
The blogger wrote:
Alien Princess RiRi of the Universe slicked back her cockatoo hawk (using Chris Brown’s crocodile tears) before walking the streets of NYC yesterday. RiRi was probably wondering why bitches were running from her like she was the tax man. It’s because people watch too many movies, and they probably thought she was going to hatch an alien baby who would maul their faces off. I doubt Ripley was around, so they had reason to be scared. But you know….
He knows he is wrong, but I did get a chuckle out of that.
Just when we thought Katherine Jackson was the level headed matriarch of that bizarre Jackson dynasty. Now comes word that the three children Jackson raised as his own will be pushed into a reality series to appease the remaining Jackson brothers.
Obviously, there is no way a reality show starring Tito, Jackie, Randy and Marlon will attract any viewership at all. So the producers will include Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7. This will put the exploitation of Kate and Jon’s 8 children to shame.
When will the madness end and the children be allowed to live normal lives?
A source tells Us Weekly the buzzed-about program will include Michael’s kids — Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7 — though not everyone’s happy about it.
Eldest sister Rebbie, 59, who has refused to be in the series (called The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, tentatively set to air in December), “feels Michael would spin in his grave if he knew his kids would be on this show.” Read more…
Music mogul Sean Combs partied at The new Compound nightclub over the weekend with Usher, Nelly, DJ Clue, JD and a bevy of Fulton County Flavors, including the chick on the right. But peep the hilarious side eye from dude on the left, lol.
In case you were at The Compound this weekend and you were wondering why Diddy was all over this particular chick:
My apologies for my lack of coverage on Barack Obama’s train wreck of a presidency. But have you heard the news that our 401K’s are worth almost nil now? For the first time EVER, the mighty dollar has been upstaged by the yen and the euro as the currency favored by world banks moving us closer to Socialism.
Even as the dollar loses value to worlkd currency, Obama’s well-oiled printing presses continues printing cash in DC. I bet Obama is very excited to hear this news since he thinks America is too arrogant and we need to spread the wealth.
No wonder the lines at the banks are getting longer as nervous customers withdraw their life savings before disaster strikes.
Over the last three months, banks put 63 percent of their new cash into euros and yen — not the greenbacks — a nearly complete reversal of the dollar’s onetime dominance for reserves, according to Barclays Capital. The dollar’s share of new cash in the central banks was down to 37 percent — compared with two-thirds a decade ago.
Currently, dollars account for about 62 percent of the currency reserve at central banks — the lowest on record, said the International Monetary Fund. Read more…
According to a well-connected industry source, RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield won’t be back on the show next year.
This info comes to me from a credible source who said one of the cast members has to go to make room for new blood next season just as DeShawn Snow was let go from last season’s cast.
The booted member was to be newcomer Kandi Burrus, but recent developments changed all that. Now Kandi Burruss has emerged to be the breakout star on show, which isn’t sitting too well with NeNe Leakes who assumed the smack talking role from Sheree.
It seems that Sheree is biting the hand that fed her by refusing to wild out and stir up drama on the show this season because she wants to be taken seriously as a (lol) fashion designer.
But according to my source, Kandi has surprised the show’s producers by emerging as the star of the show. Kandi’s new track “Fly Above” from her upcoming album B.L.O.G. is selling well on iTunes and Amazon,com, and she has the most Twitter.com followers (100,000) out of all the RHOA cast members.
Industry people have expressed surprise that Kandi has come from the behind to become the sentimental favorite of the viewers. But that’s how it goes sometimes. Viewers get tired of all that fake drama.
If troubled rapper Kanye West didn’t know his career is on the rocks, he certainly knows now. Kanye’s Patelle Clothing line is officially dead before it ever got off the ground. You see, celebrity clothing lines are usually always backed by rich investors who act as silent partners behind the frontman celebrity endorser whose face is on all the ads.
But when said frontman celebrity endorser goes berserk and snatches the microphone from a white woman’s hand on national TV, well, that spells disaster in every language. Rich investors will pull out faster than 2-minute-man Sean Combs.
Poor Kanye thought his super celebrity powers would protect him from the wrath of a public fed up with his childish antics.
In other news, Lady Gaga, who dropped out of a tour with Kanye last week, will be going out on tour without him. They say tickets to her show are selling briskly, unlike the tickets to Kanye and GaGa’s tour.
Pop icon Rihanna dressed down to run errands in NYC yesterday wearing fishnet stockings under ripped Dirty Couture jeans. Rihanna combed her blond extensions back and slicked the mess down with gel. But we hope she removes them completely and goes back to black. She looks much cuter. Photo: Splash News Online
Rapper 50 Cent strolls into a Hollywood Barnes & Nobles book store where he signed copies of his book. I don’t even know the name of it. But I know this thug didn’t write any book, lol. Photo: Splash News Online
Talk show Diva Tyra Banks showed off her bouncing and behavin’ hairdo yesterday in NYC during a photo shoot. Actually, that’s a lacefront, and yes I am quite disappointed in her after all that talk about black women wearing our own hair. But then again, she is mixed. Photo: INF DAILY
Convicted felon Chris Brown was spotted arriving at LAX yesterday. I guess the Richmond District attorney’s office gave him the day off from his hard labor picking up trash by the highway as part of his community service agreement. Photo: Splash News Online
Old school (and I do mean old) rapper Snoop Dogg performed his hits at the Velvet Room nightclub over the weekend here in Atlanta.

If you’ve been following the drama between myself and celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie, here’s the latest. The shook blogger took a gamble yesterday and had one of her attorney buddies send me a bogus cease & desist email ordering me to remove all posts pertaining to one “p/k/a Necole Bitchie (Miss Bitchie).” They didn’t even put her real name in the letter. What kind of foolishness is that?
Actually, the C&D was a photo scan of an actual letter that I’m guessing they intend to send through snail mail, though I doubt I’ll get it.
As I’ve told you bloggers in the past, receiving a cease & desist letter via email is not legal unless it’s sent certified through the mail. So you should not panic when you receive a C&D in this manner. Most attorneys think that sending C&D orders through email should be sufficient enough to scare the pants off of you. But Necole’s attorney obviously is not familiar with me or my blog.
If Kimora Lee’s prestigious 5th Avenue law firm couldn’t persuade me to remove a post about her, what makes this attorney think I’m going to budge on Necole’s post — and she’s a nobody?
Anyway, it’s obvious that Necole’s attorney didn’t even bother to authenticate Necole’s claim that I altered her email that she sent to an industry executive (hey, bloggers can be executives too). For instance, the attorney didn’t ask her to produce the original email so they could check the headers or anything. Had they done that they would have known that she was lying her azz off.
Anyway, I forwarded the foolishness to my attorney because she snacks on bogus C&D orders between meals. If any of you bloggers need a really good attorney, who is Harvard educated and knows her chit, let me know and I’ll pass on her info to you.
EDIT: I forgot to add that putting a legal disclaimer at the end of emails is not legally binding in most states. I thought all attorneys knew that?
Here we go, another fabricated reality TV series cluttering up the airwaves has begun shooting in Atlanta. I think by now the public knows that these shows are completely bogus, But I guess it’s the entertainment value that drives viewers to watch.
Rodney Ho of the AJC’s radio blog spoke with TLC member Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas about her new reality TV series titled ‘The Chilli Project’ in which she consults with a dating coach to find her a date with eligible bachelors. I’m assuming boxer Floyd Mayweather will be one of those “eligible bachelors.” The show will air on VH1 early next year.
According to Rodney, the show “won’t be “Flavor of Love” or its many variations. No bachelor mansion, no rose ceremonies, no hot tubs.”
He goes on to say that she recently hosted “a semi-manufactured event” at celebrity attorney Charles Mathis’ Buckhead mansion to help out her friend and Atlanta mayoral candidate Kasim Reed. Chilli and Kasim knew each other when they were in high school two decades ago.
Rodney interviewed Chilli about her show. He writes:
Chilli is no stranger to reality shows. She did one for UPN four years ago called “R U the Girl with T-Boz and Chilli.” The show was a bit bogus because it gave the impression they were seeking a replacement for Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who had died in a car accident a few years earlier. But the winner only got to sing one song with them and do one concert. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, her TLC singing mate, was recently on “Celebrity Apprentice” and barely made a peep. Read More…
Over the weekend, music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs attended the BET Hip Hop Grand Finale at The Velvet Room. Sean sat in the VIP with former Danity Kane member Dawn Richard, her group member and a pretty Jennifer Lopez look-a-like.
According to sources, the two cuddled and whispered in each other’s ear — until a photographer happened along. At that point, Sean jumped up and assumed the position. You know that freeze-frame look that men have when they know they’ve been caught.
I don’t know for sure if Sean and this chick are an item. But it sure does look like it from these pics. I can’t blame him for temporarily forgetting about Cassie. The chick is hawt. That’s how we grow them in the A. From what I understand, Sean and the chick left the club together, although their destination was unknown. Is he still with the one-hit-wonder Cassie?
Thanks to Tracye of Kind Of A Big Deal and Grand Hustle for sending over these pics of Jeezy performing at rapper T.I.’s Club Crucial over the weekend. Jeezy performed at his birthday party, which also served as the BET Hip Hop Awards Grand Finale party at Crucial on Sunday night. According to Tracye, this was Jeezy’s first time performing live at Crucial. Jeezy will also be in the house for T.I.’s triumphant coming home party at Club Crucial later this year.
T.I.’s lady Tiny poses with Grand Hustle’s Pee Wee, who appeared in T.I.’s “Road To Redemption” reality series that aired on MTV earlier this year. I hear that before T.I. went to Arkansas to begin serving his time, he sat down and had a long talk with Pee Wee about staying out of trouble. It looks like that talk is working.
Yesterday I wrote a post about struggling R&B singer Trey Song and I decided to throw in an email that someone forwarded to me earlier this year. That someone wanted me to put blogger Necole Bitchie on blast because they were surprised to see that Necole was carrying on a fake affair with Trey since she supposedly didn’t like him.
That someone thought Necole was being paid to write favorable posts about Trey and other Atlantic Records’ artists — sort of like Payola for blogging. They knew that I was the perfect one to put her on blast. But at the time, I declined to do so.
After I published the email yesterday, it exposed a side of Necole that she didn’t want people to see. She thought that side of her was well-hidden along with her other secrets.
Necole couldn’t deny writing the email since I am not the only one with a copy. That email was forwarded to others within the industry as proof of what a hypocrite she is. As a result, she panicked.
She called people in Atlanta, screaming and crying on the phone like she was losing it, telling them that I “added words” to her email. She begged them to ask me to pull the post down and she asked them for my number.
Why go through all of that drama if she thought I altered her email?
Why not just call her attorney and let him handle it? If Necole altered an email of mine, I wouldn’t call around pestering her friends, crying and boo hooing on the phone. I would call my Harvard-educated attorney and let her handle it.
She also told a friend that she spoke with Trey Song yesterday and that he believed her line that she didn’t write that email. I would expect his slow azz to believe that. But the email is real, and it isn’t going away. So if Necole wants to prove the authenticity of the email once and for all, she can have her attorney call my attorney.
Last month, someone posted this vid of fake azz rapper Nikki Minaj before her miraculous transformation. We have gone from being naturally beautiful to artificially enhancing every part of our bodies just to please some clueless man who can’t tell the difference between a real azz or a fake one.
