The buzz in the sports world today is centered around former Celtics star Antoine Walker who had it all and then lost it.
But before I bore you with the details of a fool and his money, loyal reader Markisha alerted us to the fact that Angels player Torii Hunter (pictured right) takes his child support responsibilities very seriously. She said when Hunter found out they didn’t take the over $4,500 dollar a month child support out of his paycheck, he called the child support office to find out why.
Now back to Walker…
According to Yahoo news, in 12 years, Antoine Walker, 33, made more than $110 million playing in the NBA. He spent his money recklessly and lived lavishly high on the hog until one day he woke up broke and owing creditors more than $4 million and faces felony check fraud charges in Las Vegas.
Only a few people who don’t understand the wasteful, fast life these ballers lead are asking how he fell so far from grace.
According to the Boston Globe, Walker’s own mother says he supported an entourage of 70 people including family members who relied on him to pay their bills.
Those people are all gone now. Don’t you chuckle at these rappers who also surround themselves with deadbeat hard legs?
Speaking of Walker’s mom, she once luxuriated in a mansion in the Chicago suburbs that her son built her, complete with an indoor pool, 10 bathrooms, and a full-size basketball court.
Do you remember Jay Z’s ex-lover Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson who shared a bachelor pad with Jigga until Beyonce put her foot down?
Well, the Chiefs suspended Johnson for using gay slurs on the social network site twitter.com. Why didn’t Johnson’s reps tell that lie that the twitter account wasn’t his like Neffe’s people did when she posted Kim Zolciak’s home number on her page?
I told y’all twitter was the devil.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been officially suspended for comments he made on his twitter account. Johnson made two gay slurs that have resulted in his punishment. The two time Pro Bowler will not be able to return to the team until November 9. His agent, Peter Shaffer, said the total dollar amount lost by Johnson would be around $600,000, which includes a game check and other lost revenue. Shaffer said that he would appeal the suspension and has consulted with the Players Association.
“We will be filing an appeal on behalf of Larry tomorrow,” Schaffer told The Associated Press. “While we respect the Chiefs’ ability to try to discipline a player, we disagree and respectfully disagree that the punishment they propose is warranted by the facts or allowable by the collective bargaining agreement. Hopefully, we will be able to work out a mutual and positive resolution with the Chiefs short of a hearing. If we don’t, then this will go to an arbitrator.”
I love old school rappers who put these wack young’ns back in their lane. Most of you might be too young to remember Nikki D, the first female rapper signed to Def Jam. But in an interview with XXL magazine, she’s speaking out on a disturbing new trend of females with artificially enhanced body parts being labeled MCs.
Nicki Minaj is a lame Lil Wayne wannabe who sounds like a fool. The idiots who co-sign this tramp have no concept of what real hip hop is or they would stop looking at her fake azz long enough to actually hear her wack delivery.
No wonder hip hop is dead.
XXLMag.com: So what do you think about some of the new female MCs that are out now?
Nikki D: There aren’t any out! Who’s out? You mean, Nicki Minaj? That’s not a rapper. That’s a girl with her ass on the screen. Nice hairdo and she’s saying some things but she’s not a rapper. She’s not an MC. She’s an artist. She’s an entertainer. There’s a difference. She can go out there and open her mouth and say whatever but people ain’t listening to her. They looking at her. And rapping is about the skill. It ain’t about your fat ass. It ain’t about your set of titties. It ain’t about that long-ass weave.
According to a source inside rapper Shawty Lo’s camp, the former D4L member was hospitalized Tuesday night with a serious infection.
The 33-year-old trap star, whose real name is Carlos Walker, is a brittle type I diabetic, according to friends. Shawty Lo Atlanta rap group D4L in 2003 with Fabo. He has struggled with rumors that he had AIDS for years. But according to friends, Shawty Lo does not have HIV.
Former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett teamed with Ludacris to shoot the video for her hit single “Regret”. Don’t the make a cute couple?!
Capitol Records artist Letoya Luckett recently shot the video to her hit song “Regret” featuring Ludacris – the song is currently Top 5 on the R&B chart! The video was directed by Parris (The Dream, Ludacris, Swizz Beats, etc.) and features Letoya looking gorgeous while she tells her ex man that “you must regret the day that you left me.” Hip hop superstar Ludacris lends a hand on the song and the video – playing Letoya’s new man – in fact, fans may recognize the ex as the same hot model who played her boyfriend in the “She Ain’t Got” video.
Good afternoon. I wanted to share some pics with you from the grand opening of a new Atlanta eatery which is turning it to quite the spot to catch celebs. In the last 2 weeks Café Slush in the East Village has hosted Andre 3000, Dekembe Mutumbo, Kandi (Real Housewives of Atlanta), and Pooch Hall (Derwin Davis, on The Game). Pooch stopped by while have a break from shooting Stomp the Yard 2.

All day yesterday I fielded emails from loyal Jay Z fans who wanted to give their points of view about the controversy surrounding his lyrics.
Dear Ms. Rose,
Let me start by saying that I read your blog everyday. I was going through your post and I came across “Former Drug Dealer&& Rapper Denies Jesus”….let me say that I found this totally offensive. I am a college student at South Alabama and I totally deny Jesus. What does his past and his present have to do with his faith???Why bash a brother who knows the truth and refuses to be a slave to religion that we were given once we stepped off the slave ship so that we would be more obedient and complacent. It’s closed minded people like yourself that continue to push back our progression.
If Jay-Z wants to dress the way he dresses and put out the image that he is displaying that is him!….It is not for you to judge or anyone else!&& believe me no matter what you post or anyone else post…He will continue to sell because there are people out here like me that can look deeper into things and not play GOD by passing judgement!
R&B singer Monica appeared on Fox 5’s Good Day Xtra this morning to discuss her new reality show.
Earlier, I wrote a plea from Monica for help in finding an 11-year-old missing child. The boy has been found and Monica thanks everyone for their assistance in locating him.
She was on top of it all, with hit records climbing the charts, awards lining her mantle and telelvision appearances filling her calendar. And then, she seemed to disappear. Well this fall, Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist Monica returns to the spotlight and makes her reality TV debut with “Monica: Still Standing.”
The show takes a rare look inside Monica’s personal life, relationships, carrer and motherhood.
