They say that pop singer Rihanna is being pushed by her mentor Jay Z to be the face of a new chain of burlesque themed nightclubs. Rihanna and her bestie, Melissa, partied at the swanky Mahiki nightclub until 4:30 am last night.


Over the weekend, Keri Hilson along with Cat Deely of "So You Think You Can Dance" was invited to a private dinner at Neiman Marcus...


...the party was hosted by Peter Dundas, Creative Director of Emilio Pucci. Photos courtesy of Chamber Group PR


Tasha Smith is the latest D-list celeb to be featured in yet another of celebrity photographer Derek Blank's increasingly boring "Alter Ego" series. That's Tasha down in the right hand corner of the photo running away from her oversized ego. I've seen movie posters that look better than this. Has anyone else noticed that mostly all of Blanks subjects are narcissists with oversized egos?

  • Candi Apple

    Sandra, That alter ego photo is a hot mess. They should have just left her as the 50 foot woman. She looks good. The picture is as loud as her.

    Keri dress is nice. I want one.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    I'm so mad at that scarf and Wrestlemania belt. But he has big **cough** feet.

    Keri Hilson looks great.

    I read that Sister 2 Sister story with Tasha. I loved her in Why Did I Get Married 2. Every chic has a lil Angela in 'em.

    Keri looks very nice!

  • luvly1957

    Sandra u r so wrong about Tasha she is one of the most doen to earth ladies I have ever met. She is in no way like you all egomaniac and like to name drop and worry about what type of bag u got or who gave u what for free. THAT's YOU SANDRA ROSE but sister Tasha helps black women with her organization (non-profit) and her actors classes that she does a lot for FREE.

  • Nightshift

    Why should we give a darn about another Rhianna/ Keri outfit post and a yet another alter ego shoot when you could not say anything decent about Lena Horne? Child please.

  • http://twitter.com/mrs_truth ms.truth

    what does Keri Hilson have on??????? and either photoshop does a body good, or Tasha Smith's body looks great.

  • Daisy

    A Rihanna post :woot: :danban: WERK BISH

    Keri looks FAB but I don't like her dress :nono:

    Tasha has alot of gums when she smiles and is typcast but I love that she went from an atheist to Christian GLORRRYY :pray:

  • FloridaChick813

    Ms Keri baby could use a bra

    I like the Alter ego photoshoots, I wanna do one :)

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    Soooo, when I get my Alter Ego done can I be a dlist celeb, too? (I'm not greedy)

    I like Keri's dress and I like her shoes but I don't think they go together. (Where is OTB?)

    Heeeyyy everybody!! g'morning.

    i wonder what my alter ego would be, maybe a nun

  • mirsmommy

    Did anybody see pics from Rhi Rhi's latest performance?? A mess.

    I like Keri's dress.

    I :heart: Tasha Smith.

    :offtopic:

    Why no one told me DJ Toomp was sexy? Where have I been?

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    @flo, how do you want your alter ego? Like how many and what kinds of people you wanna be? I'm gonna ask Derek to shoot me in a threesome with myself (hey, its after dark somewhere) and hang it in my bedroom. No worries, I'm getting a clean one, too.

    Wait, does that make me a narcissist?

  • Chgoprime

    Keri Looks fabulous BUUUUT I refuse to believe she's under 30. I won't go. I just don't believe her........

    I love Rhi Rhi, I do, but she is gonna get a yeast infection if she dont get those outfits out of her poo-nany!!!

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    :shocked:

    Keri looks very... I can't believe I'm saying this... feminine AND "straight." WOW! I would :hump:

    I seriously thought that was Kelly Rowland in that Tasha Smith photo. I was like "why is everyone talkin about Tasha Smith." I think "Photo Shop" went down that day it was working so hard trying to make her look human.

    Tasha Smith is a very unattractive woman. VERY. Now I see why Derek Blanks gets the credit that he does. He deserves an award or a vacation or something.

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    @chgoprime. Was telling one of my friends that same thing and she swaers that girl is 27. I say this and stand on it "the only way she aint thirty looking like that is if she got 50 11 kids and several sober medallions at home".

  • Redeemed777

    I feel really sorry for Rihanna.
    The girl don't know what it is she is doing.

    Her demon worshipping mentor is leading her to the WIDE and crooked path to destruction 4 sho.

    @ Man -- We are >>>>HERE<<<<

    My first thought was "damn Kelly is looking a lot like Tasha in that photo" - but then Im like "oohh sh.it, that is Tasha"... Cant mistake those teeth for anything in the world :nono: But I wouldnt say she is an unattractive woman. The roles that she plays fits her looks very well.

  • Ebony

    :pc: making my appointment with D blanks to do my alter ego photoshoot, since he likes to work with every tom, dick, harry, or jane :coffee:

  • FloridaChick813

    @ Brown -

    Ahhhh, you took that the wrong way. But isnt a nunn a virgin??

    Im not saying your a wh0re - your just a freak!

    @ Mirs -

    Rhi Rhi is on some other sh.it.

  • mirsmommy

    I thought Tasha was Kelly Rowland at first, too. Til I saw the teeth. :lol: I'm just playin.

    @flo, its hard coming up with the three people. I think I might be a dj and a rapper... Or something with a homie lover friend theme. I have a conference call coming up shortly and ill have to decide by then.

    As for Rhianna, she's soft porn and wwhen this singing breaks bad and no one else is checking for her clothing she might be on Skinemax. They'll save amint in wardrobe if they just let her wear her tour clothes. I've got no kids but do people let their children watch her?

    She looks sad, like she sold her soul to the Devil. :lol: At 21 you still need the guidence of your parents. You don't have to live with them but you need that support. I don't know much gossip about her mom but didn't her dad sell some info to the tabloids?

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Sandra, I think Rhi Rhi and Melissa make a good looking couple...
    :coffee:

    Her dad was homeless and an alcoholic. Her mom is on the island sipping sex on the beach.

  • Danielle84

    I like Keri Hilson, I still play her CD! Make Love & Slow dance are still my favs.
    I think Tasha looks nice in the pic, her body is crazy.
    Rihi seems to be losing her buzz!

  • Candi Apple

    Rhi didnt loose her buzz. She got a half empty bottle of vodka under that black scarf

  • qtipthecat

    Actually a nun does not have to be a virgin. They just have to be celebate.

    @ANNA

    What i cant understand is why some of these so-called celebs just don't walk away from it ( the industry )....

    I mean if it is one's passion to sing, money shouldn't be their priority. Sing to inspire good and pleasant things. Above all sing to please God not Jay-Z.

  • kcicero

    That woman don't look nothing like Kelly :coffee: #carryon

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    @redeemed is it inconceivable that maybe what started as passion turned into obsession and then broke all the way left? Sure it started as a passion for singing but got bogged down in casting calls, perverted producers, late night studio sessions, red carpet appearances and being chased by paparazzi? All that's enough to make me not wanna sing another note. How many chefs do you know that actually cook at home?

    ------------------------

    If you don't already have a deep root/relationship with God, then it's hard to leave the fame, excess of money... :shrugs: I don't agree with it, but I can see why many people fall prey to it. Instead of judging them though, we should pray for them. That's why I've stopped calling them devil worshipers. I don't know what they really do. But I do pray that IF they are doing that, that God will deliver them from it...Kelly Price is a prime example that it can be done.

    Some really do like the spotlight. Not a good trade off when you have no privacy. Yes if your passion is singing go for it. Stacy Latisaw walked away at the height of her career. Now she is singing for the Lord, I want her CD.

    yeah, i dont get the alter ego series and where derek's going with that. they're nice pics, but i just dont see the purpose. i dont care for tasha smith much either.

  • OutsidetheBox

    Is Keri wearing a Pucci dress? That would be smart. Those shoes? Not smart... :coffee:

    I love Alter Ego shoots! I want one, but I'm vain so dont mind me...anywho choco girls look delish in yella...

    Waddup fam? Its 5'o'clock somewhere... :coffee:

    What happened to your gravi @ Pointhimout??

  • Redeemed777

    @MSTRUTH

    You are right, we should pray for them. They still need to understand that even though God has forgiven them, they still have to be punished for disobedience just the same way king David was punished. Like God said, he ( David ) gave the enemies of the Lord opportunity to blaspheme.....

    [II Samuel 12]

    13: And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.
    14: Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

    Keri's dress is ugly and :blink: at her feet...rihanna looks nice...no comment on Tasha lol

  • SangriaSugar

    Rihanna bores me :coffee: and her concert performances...goodness...everytime time they show a picture of her its like she is trying to scratch some yeast. I swear each and everyone of her costumes is a drag piece...I keep waiting for Chris March to jump up onstage and say "I made this out of safety pins and human hair and threw some glitter on it!!"

    Is that really Keri?? I really can't tell. She looks good but Ms. Keri Baby needs a bra.

    Derek Blanks needs to go take a refresher course on his photoshop skills, this mess looks might cut and past-y. I do love this woman's skin though, flawless.

    Who is Keri hilson again?

  • OutsidetheBox

    “I made this out of safety pins and human hair and threw some glitter on it!!” :rofl: Yes, yes!!!

    @Anna..do you like Pucci or Coogi? I love prints but a lot of my firends say :nono: to them. *shrugs* I'd bet that back of this is right. Anyone seen it?

    cant get into keri for some reason- she lacks true star quality IMO. although rihanna is talent- less- I love to see what she's wearing- her fashion game is on point, but she's a little to raunchy for my taste in an artist. but I love her clothes- lol

  • OutsidetheBox

    @Anna, well you are going to be mighty perturbed this season: lace and florals everywhere. Its going to be like lil' church girls in the 80's...

    Cant wait... :/ /sarcasm
