Last week I told you that former choreographer-turned-music mogul Devyne Stephens wined and dined singer Kelly Rowland during the BET Hip Hop Awards weekend in Atlanta.

Some scoffed at the news that Devyne and Kelly Rowland were a romantic item. They doubted my word, as they always do. But Devyne and Kelly set tongues wagging when they stepped out as an official couple for the first time last night in Atlanta!

The occasion was the ASCAP event honoring outstanding females in the entertainment industry.

Honorees in Atlanta included Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Kelly Rowland; Hannah Kang, General Manager of Grand Hustle Records; and Sandra Brown, Entertainment Attorney.

Celebrity photographer Prince Williams of was there to capture the moment when Devyne stood up to proudly applaud his lady, Kelly Rowland, as she walked up to the podium to accept her award. Isn't love grand?

Canadian rapper Drake is in Atlanta recording an album with Trey Songz and others, or so I'm told.

During a break in recording, Drake decided to partake in the skills of the local talent -- a business woman -- so to speak.

The couple -- who had known each other for all of 3 hours -- stopped by the newly christened "Monday Nights" at Tongue & Groove last night.

Monday nights at Tongue & Groove is a new joint venture by AG Entertainment's Alex Gidewon (pictured above with Drake) and Upscale Entertainment, who moved Mondays from the Gold Room to Tongue & Groove.

Drake and his date chilled in the VIP, smoking Newports and downing a few drinks before calling it a night. I assume they went back to Drake's hotel room to make a movie?

Rapper 50 Cent, who's been acting quite bizarre lately, was spotted at the Los Angeles Premiere of "Red" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood yesterday. I wonder if he stayed to watch the movie, or if he just walked the red carpet and left like everyone else does?

Stylish rapper Kanye West is still in Sydney, Australia promoting his 40-minute movie/music video.

Is it a little late in the evening for some Morning Wood? Sexy singer Akon performed at the Think Pink Rocks concert to benefit breast cancer research charities at Mizner Park Amphitheatre on Saturday (Oct. 9) in Boca Raton, Florida. That's confetti all over him, not blood.

A loyal reader emailed me to ask why I never covered the Peter Thomas/ Uptown scandal. the answer is: I couldn't care less. I guess I have other things going on in my life that take precedence over worrying about nobodies and what they're up to.

Anyway, my reader accuses Thomas of not paying his workers when Uptown Restaurant was open. She also says Bravo network hired stand-ins to act as employees of Uptown, which was closed 6 months ago.

**Loyal reader Ruby Kisses writes:

Your stuff is always FIRE! However, Im curious as to why you have not address Peter Thomas the con man that is NOT the owner of Uptown Restaurant and Lounge, everyone (except the chick he married) knows his game..... The place is closed I personally saw a marshal's eviction note slapped on the door ---- when it was open there was always bs, this dude would not pay the people who worked there.

Imagine working for 2 weeks, and being told: "you started on an off pay week, payday is in two MORE weeks for you." You could wait it out for 2 more weeks, and on payday he has another lie, or just doesnt show up! Eventually the staff (one by one) would quit and he would just replace them, with another naive cocktail waitress. (Oh he is goooooood at what he does: CONS) -The "staff" on tv tonight were Bravo stand-ins as they did not work there... Too funny!

Im sure he hoped to capitalize on celebrities being in town for the BET hip hop awards. He has never owned ish..just a front for the real owner (Uptown is OWNED by a retired nfl player .... Research the spots he claims to have owned in other markets (NYC, LA, MIA etc)! He will "do the town" and get run out of town. He usually dates "celebrity woman" to use them for who they know and of course their money!

Cadillac Kimberly was right: there is nothing Real about this show! He claims to have been an executive at Def Jam..... more lies. He is NOT an executive at anything. There are a million pending lawsuits, people would come to the club to serve him all day every day -- he doesnt care due to the fact that is NOT HIS PROPERTY HE OWNS NOTHING!!!!!!! Fraud, Phony, BS! This spot for the longest didn't even have a liquor license and was shut down because of that, he just would reopen and buy liquor himself - ILLEGAL IN GA!!!!!!!!

I heard Bravo peeps "had enough" and wanted a real married couple......... and he desperately needed the money so.......... wha-la, opportunity a knocking! He only would hire woman, because he knew he would take advantage of them! A real punk!

Ruby kisses for you, love what you do, cuz you bring it to us first!

Dorrough, an obscure Dallas, Texas rapper (code word for dope boy) managed to get B and C-list rappers to jump on the Remix of his subpar "Get Big" single.

The remix features drops by Diddy, DJ Drama, Yo Gotti, Bun B, Diamond, Shawty Lo & Maino.

You're probably wondering how does an unsigned artist manage to get so many recognized names to jump on his remix? Well, considering that all of their careers have seen better days, what else do they have to do with their time?

Are you sitting down? I think the following news might devastate some of you delusional CB Stans. I don't want you to pass out and bump your heads on the way down to the floor.

Yesterday, I received an email from a loyal reader who asked to remain anonymous. The reader identified the "boy" standing with convicted woman beater chris brown in yesterday's Celebs Out & About Post as a girl.

In all of the pictures taken outside the hotel, chris and the person I assumed was a boy, appear to be attached at the hip. brown does not leave her side.

The reader also stated that the two are secretly dating (!!), and that her hair is up in pins because they just left their NY hotel room together to catch a limo ride to the airport. Supposedly, chris doesn't want it to get out that he's dating such a rough looking chick. But my loyal reader tells me it's true love!

That would make sense, especially when you consider that brown has been looking extra zesty lately, wearing his girlfriend's Capri's and other feminine articles of clothing.

Despite all appearances, the 21-year-old, who calls herself "Moe," probably short for Monique, includes the phrase "No Homo" on her various social networking pages -- as if to stress that she isn't a lesbian.

Her Myspace and Twitter pages have been recently scrubbed clean of all pics of chris brown -- even though they are obviously close.

On her Myspace page, Moe had a pic of Rihanna with the words "ON DA D*CK."

But my loyal reader says that "Moe" is in fact a lesbian. The word my reader used to describe Moe was "butch."

She does in fact, look like a cute tranny when she is cleaned up. But maybe that's what brown is into these days?

So does this mean that all of those recent paparazzi shots of convicted woman beater chris brown frolicking in the surf with hawt bodied chicks were staged to throw us off the real story?

Even though U.S. President Barack Obama's name is not on the ballot in the upcoming midterm elections, he has hit the campaign trail hard because he desperately needs a win.

So for the first time in 20 months, Obama, who is half black, is reaching out to the black and independent voters whose passion and eagerness to make history, helped propel him into office in 2008.

Never mind that he promised the moon and the stars -- and failed to deliver -- Obama fully expects black voters to turn out in record numbers at the polls on November 2nd.

“We need to finish the plan you elected me to put in place. And I need you. I need you because this isn’t going to be easy," said Obama at a Congressional Black Caucus’ annual dinner last month. [link]

A typical narcissist, Obama has made the midterm elections all about him rather than about the politicians whose names are on the ballot. He has made it clear that a loss for the Democrats in November would be a devastating failure for him personally.

“Don’t make me look bad, now,” Obama pleaded at a rally on the campus of historically black Bowie State University last week.

“Two years ago you defied the conventional wisdom in Washington,” Obama told thousands of black supporters Sunday at a rally in Philadelphia. “They said, ‘No you can’t. No you can’t elect a skinny guy with a funny name to the presidency of the United States,’” he added.

But not everyone in the black community hears Obama's rallying cry. There are some who are suspicious of Obama's sudden interest in the black community -- even if they don't voice their suspicions out loud.

“We haven’t heard from you in a while,” radio host Tom Joyner said sarcastically to the president at the start of his interview last month. [link]

“You know, I don’t get a chance to do much radio these days,” replied Obama, who records a weekly radio address every Saturday morning.

It's clear that Obama's faithful flock doesn't hold him to the same standards that they held George Bush to. Despite record unemployment in the black community, there are those who still make excuses for O.

“We know that people have short memories, but they have to remember that Barack Obama didn’t create this problem,” Carolyn Pinkney, an African American voter, said at Obama’s rally.

“Of course there’s some disenchantment because the president came in with such high expectations levels,” said Rendell. “But on the other hand there’s still a lot of African Americans who say, ‘Hey, he’s not superman and he can’t change everything in 20 months.’” [link]

According to a loyal reader, who asked to remain anonymous, NBA player Amar'e Stoudemire is upset with ESPN magazine for Photoshopping his shorts off of him in that soon-to-be classic Body Issue shot.

She also implies that the majority of you who thought he was packing might be correct.

Ok Sandra know my people's is the mother to Amare's children she thinks this is hilarious cause she wants people to continue to believe that he has a small

But he was in Italy when the pics came when she told him the pics where online , he asked , "with my shorts on right?" When the pictures were taken he had on shorts , they airbrushed them off...

*don't use my name , just clarifying ...cause the media was having a field day

A NFL wife and her mom has responded to comedian Steve Harvey's successful book "Think Like a Man".

Shanae Hall, who penned "Why Do I Have To Think Like a Man?" with her mother Rhonda Frost, says, “It’s not the man that makes the difference, it’s how you (women) deal with the man that makes the difference between heartbreak and a mutually beneficially situation.”

She is right about one thing: the success of a relationship often falls on the woman's shoulders. Healthy (non-narcissistic) men tend to be uncomplicated, while women can be complicated for no reason at all.

Men come into a relationship with a simple mindset: Me, man. You, woman,. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

But women manage to upset the balance of a relationship due to their unchecked emotions, unrealistic expectations of men, and their dogged determination to change him.

Even though Hall is no longer married to former NFL player Cory Hall, she and Frost combined to write a book dispensing tried and true advice to women on how to deal with the men in their lives.

The book, which is in stores now, is based on more than 300 interviews with men and women over 25, and the author’s own dating drama.

It reveals a unique perspective on deal breakers, commitment, baggage, what men really want and getting what women want in return – from Hall and her mother, Rhonda Frost. The mother-daughter, hold-nothing-back collaboration aims to give readers a perspective that Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” and his upcoming piece “Straight Talk, No Chaser” could not, an uncensored woman’s view on dating.

While Harvey believes that thinking like a man is a recipe for a successful marriage, Hall says she can teach you to continue thinking like a lady, and still get your man.

Apparently, it didn't work for her though.
