This B-list actor was one of the few minority actors to be a part of one of the biggest movies to date. He has worked really hard in Hollywood to score big roles such as his most recent acting part. He obtained his bachelor’s degree and worked on Wall Street before ditching that and pursuing a career in acting. He is accomplished, successful, and very much a “mommas boy.” But behind closed doors, this eligible handsome bachelor is a big time male whore. Chasing and sleeping with almost every video vixen or actress on the come-up. And what is different and strange about this actor is he will pursue them on social networks (such as Twitter.com) instead of model agencies or private escort services like other celebrities. With so much success as a ladies man, it is only a matter of time before some of the many females he beds airs his dirty laundry out. And the real reason this brotha doesn’t settle down? Because he is afraid of commitment following a really bad relationship with an ex-girlfriend who left him. Don’t let the good looks, colgate smile, and witty charm fool you. This brotha is a panty sliding sweet talker just trying to get it in then move onto the next.

When I saw this beautiful photo of singer Christina Milian with celebrity photographer Joi Pearson at the Princess birthday party for music exec Tubby’s daughter Alaysia, I wondered to myself who her baby daddy was.

Then this morning, by sheer coincidence, I received the following email from a loyal reader.

Hi Sandra,

I saw the picture of photographer Joi Pearson and I thought you should know that she’s pregnant by producer Vaushaun ‘Maestro’ Brooks. Congratulations to both of them.

I did a little research and it turns out that Maestro is a big time producer here in Atlanta. I’d never heard of him before today. But Maestro’s impressive production credits include hits for Lil Wayne, The Game, David Banner and Chilli (of TLC), just to name a few. Smart girl that Joi is for bagging herself a producer before he really blows up.

Here’s a pic of Maestro hard at work producing beats. You can follow him on Twitter at @Maestro

Available, straight men are sparse here in Atlanta. You ladies should have jumped on this one before he got away.

Congrats to the happy couple!

By the way, this is my favorite Joi Pearson photo! For more pics by Joi, check out her website here.

You made your voices heard and coca Cola responded.

In a controversial decision today, Coca Cola cited “scoring discrepancies” in its decision to name both the Tau Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha as 1st place winners in the Ryan Cameron/Sprite Step Off Finals held in Atlanta last weekend.

As you recall, the all-white Epsilon chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha out of Arkansas, took 1st place in the majority black competition at the Atlanta civic Center.

This video sparked a storm of controversy as soon as it hit the nets. Black sorors complained bitterly that MTV (and their sponsor, Coca Cola which distributes Sprite) wanted a step crew that was more in line with their targeted demographics.

It was whispered in certain circles that the decision had already been made about the winner before the competition had even began.

Well, to quiet such rumors (and to appease the media who began making inquiries), Coca-Cola announced that due to a scoring discrepancy in the sorority results, the second place winners, the Tau Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Inc. from Indiana University, would be recognized as co-winners and awarded the same $100,000 prize as Zeta Tau Alpha.

I don’t have to tell you that the Alpha Kappa Alpha girls are black.

Here’s my take on the subject: Coca-Cola shouldn’t have caved in to the pressure. The Zeta Tau Alpha girls should have been the sole winners because they stayed true to the historical traditions of stepping and call & response, while the AKA chicks acted like the Step Off was a dance competition.

Singer Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z, were spotted sitting courtside at the Lakers vs Mavericks game in Dallas yesterday. The Lakers lost 96-101. I’m about to give Bey a compliment so please don’t faint. I was at the Greenbrier mall this weekend when I spotted the House of Dereon’s street wear high top sneakers line. I actually loved the color palettes with the studs and I was even tempted to buy a pair. That is all.

Troubled rapper Kanye West and his muse, Amber Rose, attended the Black Eyed Peas final stop of their tour at the Madison Square Garden last night. Does it look like Amber is picking up a lot of weight? They say she smokes that bud nonstop. That will put weight on you.

I almost didn’t recognize rapper Eve who was spotted crossing a street in Beverly Hills yesterday. Eve is embroiled in an international money scandal involving a former boyfriend. Rumor had it that investigators wanted to question Eve about her relationship with Teodorin Nguema Obiang, the son of an oil rich dictator from Equitorial Guinea. But Eve denied all the allegations with a terse note on her Twitter page:

“Non of that is true….Please don’t believe everything you read on the internet. It’s negative and I don’t f*ck wit negativity. People trynna Test me. Now listening 2 Sizzla “praise ye Jah” and “head over hills”

Earlier in the week I wrote this post at the urging of an associate of RHOA’s cast member Kandi Burruss. He feared that Kandi’s TAGS boutique was going out of business due to lack of promotion.

Kandi opened TAGS Boutique last November amid much fanfare. But the fanfare quickly died down as did sales which had been brisk during the initial period following the Grand Opening.

Noting how much time Kandi spent on Twitter.com promoting her own interests, Kandi’s associate challenged me to search Twitter.com for any instances where Kandi mentions TAGS boutique in her tweets. Sure enough, I was unable to find any instances where TAGS was mentioned by Kandi in her tweets in the past 2 weeks (the service limits searches to 2 weeks).

In fact, Kandi didn’t respond to any of the tweets that I found from her followers who mentioned TAGS. There was no response to the woman who queried Kandi about her shop being closed during business hours the 3 times she visited.

Typical of most narcissists, Kandi didn’t feel the need to respond to such petty inquiries about her shop from her followers — until she was publicly put on blast Tuesday.

Once my post went up on Tuesday, Kandi rushed to her Twitter account where she mentioning TAGS boutique more times in that one day than she’s done since the store opened.

In a subsequent interview with AJC writer Rodney Ho of Radio & TV Talk blog, Kandi disputed the fact that her boutique was on the verge of going out of business. She acknowledged that business was slow during the month of January, but she attributed the slowdown to the time of year — not to the fact that she stopped promoting the boutique shortly after it opened.

She also explained why the boutique was closed when her Twitter follower stopped by during business hours (Kandi said she closed the shop early to attend Tiny & Toya’s Alzheimer’s benefit). But she didn’t give an excuse for the other times the shop was shuttered.

There was no mention of the fact that Kandi selfishly continues to promote her online video streaming show on Twitter, while making nary a mention of her shop. I won’t reveal who asked me to write the post about TAGS closing. But let’s just say that he was quite satisfied with the sales boost the shop received from all the exposure.

Kandi commented on twitter that it wasnt true about what you wrote about TAGS.. but reading your story and i follow kandi, she hasnt talked about the store lately,,, she talked about the store only the first two weeks it open and hasnt mentioned it since… seems strange.. I know you said her name is on the business license, but i dont think its her store at all, i think she was probably paid as a spokes person and model, i dont think she has any financial interest in the store.. she couldnt she doesnt mention the store at all….. she even did one of the ustream chat from the store like the second week it was open and hasnt done anything from the store since…. strange…

I see you rolling your eyes. But trust me, this story shows the depths that Mathew Knowles will go to pull the wool over our eyes for his spoiled daughter, Beyonce. The acorn doesn’t roll far from the tree. You can see where Bey gets her dishonesty and evil spirit from:

Producer Rob Fusar, who has worked with the likes of Lady GaGa, Britney Spears and Will Smith, is furious that Beyonce took credit for composing “Bootylicious”.

Fusari tells Billboard magazine, “I came up with the idea to build a track using the guitar riff from Stevie Nicks’ Edge of Seventeen.

“I figured I’d put the guitar loop on there temporarily, and later go into the studio with a guitar and replay it, because I’d learned, after sampling Stevie Wonder’s I Wish for Will Smith’s Wild Wild West, that I didn’t want to lose 50 per cent of the publishing (royalties). I vividly remember telling Mathew Knowles, ‘Mathew, you got to book me into your studio and let me replay that riff.’

“He didn’t want to do it. So 50 percent got cut for one note. That whole experience was bittersweet for me.

“I remember watching Barbara Walters interview Beyonce about Bootylicious, and she told Barbara about how she came up with the idea for the track.”

Fusari, who went on to help Lady Gaga launch her pop career, insists he was brushed off when he complained about the interview, adding, “I called Mathew – which was a big mistake; I got emotional, and I apologised after – but I called Mathew and said, ‘Mathew, like, why?’ He explained to me, in a nice way, he said, ‘People don’t want to hear about Rob Fusari, producer from Livingston, N.J. No offence, but that’s not what sells records. What sells records is people believing that the artist is everything.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I know, Mathew. I understand the game. But come on, I’m trying too. I’m a squirrel trying to get a nut, too.'” Read More…
