It’s a wonder that there is still room up under that yellow bus for more of Barack Obama’s friends. The latest casualty to go under the bus wheels is Obama’s friend and confidant Desiree Rogers.

The White House just released this statement:

“We are enormously grateful to Desiree Rogers for the terrific job she’s done as the White House Social Secretary. When she took this position, we asked Desiree to help make sure that the White House truly is the People’s House, and she did that by welcoming scores of everyday Americans through its doors, from wounded warriors to local schoolchildren to NASCAR drivers.

It was inevitable that Desiree had to go once the news broke about that reality TV couple who crashed a state dinner at the White House last year.

Rogers should have been manning her post at the gate checking to make sure her guests were actually invited. But instead she was inside the party looking cute and parading in front of the photographers. From the beginning it was clear that Desiree thought the White House was party central and she was the Grand Diva of the ball.

Even before she left Chicago bound for DC, rumors swirled that Desiree and Barack had a thing for each other. But those rumors died quickly when it became apparent that Obama is a cerebral narcissist, and most cerebral narcissists show no interest in sex at all.

It’s almost a sure bet that Barack and Michelle have a sexless marriage which accounts for her flat affect and miserable disposition in public.

Anyway, I hate to toot my own horn and say that I was right about Desiree Rogers, but didn’t I call it from the beginning?

Lil Wayne’s artist, singer, Shanell, celebrated the launch of her single last night in midtown. Regarding the rumors that she’s pregnant by Lil Wayne ( :yawn: ) she said:

”Basically it came from a corny rumor that escalated. First I was dating him, then I was his girlfriend, then we were getting married, then we were settling down and now I’m pregnant. It’s so foolish we’ve haven’t paid it any attention. All the rest of the rumors were kinda funny except that one. When my mother called me like, ‘Um?,’ [I was] like, No! Are you serious? I don’t care about the rumors, but I just want people to know that I’m not pregnant. I’ve got an album coming out, I’m a dancer, I’m in shape and children are not anywhere in my future.”

R&B crooner Sammie, left, celebrated his 22nd birthday party at VICE Nightclub in downtown Atlanta on Wednesday night. Vivica A. Fox’s man Slimm promoted the party. I hear young Sammie was getting it in with a whole bunch of girls at the party. But Slimm paid the groupies no mind. He was all business while stacking his chips. You know his stock went way up now that he’s with a starrah.  Photo by Prince Williams/

I would have posted this pic of actor Lance Gross and his girlfriend, Eva Pigford, in my Morning Wood post, but Eva has her hands all in the cookie pot ruining the view. Maybe Lance will post more pics of himself alone in all his chocolate glory on his Twitter page.

I have to hand it to Carmelo’s baby mama, LaLa Vasquez, that is one gorgeous LSLH chica. A definite step above your average video vixen. LaLa attended the 41st NAACP Image Awards Nominees Pre-Show Gala Reception at the Milk Studios last night in L.A.

Last night I watched rapper Rocko’s live Ustream video with anticipation that he would stand up for his baby mama Monica who was being bullied on a social networking site. Rocko came through, though not in the forceful way that I hoped he would. He put the Internet bully in his place using tact and decorum not usually seen in a thug.

That intrigued me.

What also intrigued me was Rocko’s thug swagga. I kind of get what the chicks see in thugs. Although some may believe that a thug’s “swagga” is just compensation for their perceived shortcomings or low self-esteem, I see it differently.

What separates a thug like Rocko from your average every day male is his testosterone-fueled machismo. You can see it in everything he does. From Rocko’s intensely impersonal greetings (“What up though”), to the way he enters a room and owns it, to the way he aggressively unzipped his jacket and put his hats on. Even in the way he continuously (and some might say, annoyingly) sucked his teeth.

I know now that my uncle was a thug because my uncle displayed these same exaggerated behaviors when I was young. To me, my uncle was the coolest man on earth. He always walked with an exaggerated swagger as if he owned the air around him. And he repeatedly sucked his teeth and chewed on toothpicks even when he hadn’t eaten anything for hours.

It got my attention — and I was just a kid. Now I know why my uncle (who was average looking, at best) had so many women swarming over him like flies. My uncle knew back then what Rocko knows now — that it is their exaggerated, macho, cock of the walk manliness mixed with pride and a lack of emotion that turns women on.

I get it now.

According to Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. Just 29% say the U.S. is generally heading in the right direction.

Overall, 45% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove.


According to DrudgeReport, The Rasmussen Tracking Poll shows Obama’s approval rating dropping to 44% today (Feb. 26).

When Coca-Cola overturned the judge’s decision to make the all white Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha the sole winners of the Ryan Cameron/Sprite Step Off Championships held last weekend in Atlanta, the move raised larger questions of whether Coca-Cola caved under the pressure of being marked racists.

Here are a few comments on the decision from a white perspective found on a mixed message board:

So basically the black girls moaned and groaned and b*tched because they lost and tried to play the race card, and since it’s an all-black thing generally Coco-Cola caved in to avoid race sh*t. Pathetic. Black people need to stop blaming white people for their losses. N*GGAS YOU F*CKING LOST. THE CR*CKAS SHITTED ON YOU FOR NINE STRAIGHT MINUTES. It’s pathetic.

That’s so true, if only n*ggas could put all the bitching towards something of good use like Health care. But the things is the White Girls were scripted to win anyway, kinda like how they do the show made.

A while back I promised you ladies that singer/songwriter Sean Garrett would chat live with you on Well, Sean has agreed to take some time out of his busy schedule to chat with you guys tonight at 11 pm!

We’re going to do it a little differently from the way we did our Live Chats in the past. Instead of Sean leaving comments, Sean will chat live via Ustream video embedded in this blog post so you can see him while he answers your comments directly.

Don’t forget, Sean will select a few of you to spend some the day with him inside his studio so you can watch a master at work! Those of you without Gravatar pics will not be considered. Sean wants to see who he’s picking to come to his studio.

Sean also asks that you keep it clean tonight. Don’t act out of pocket or ask him dirty questions. He knows you want his Hawt body, but he wants you to save the sex talk for when you see him in person! Hey, you never know, I might meet you at his studio that day too!

Don’t forget to check back tonight for Sean Garrett’s Live Chat right here on!


Chat has been rescheduled for tomorrow night (Feb. 26) at 7 pm.
