The MVP candidate led the Eagles to a convincing 59-28 win over the Redskins. He finished the night with 333 passing yards that resulted in 4 touchdowns, and he rushed for 88 yards and 2 more touchdowns.
Any other quarterback would have been celebrated on all the network morning shows today. But Vick’s riveting performance on the field was buried under the news of Prince Williams’ engagement to his girlfriend of 8 years, Kate Middleton in London.
Many blacks who thought racism would vanish completely in America after they helped elect Barack Obama to the presidency, expressed dismay on social networks facebook and Twitter this morning.
Outraged nationally syndicated Morning show host Rickey Smiley, who can be heard locally on Hot 107.9, lashed out at CNN’s Tony Harris, calling him a “house nigga” and a “sell out” for “doggin'” Vick on the network today.
Despite the fact that Vick has paid his debt to society, that same society seems unwilling to forgive him for his past behavior.
Kim Kardashian was spotted sitting courtside with her new BFF The Dream at the Houston vs NY Knicks game on Sunday (Nov. 14). I doubt The Dream’s baby mama, Christina Milian, cares one bit about the rumors surrounding her ex and the silicon queen. Isn’t C-Mili still dating recording industry exec Shawn “Pecas” Costner?
I just received word (via text message) from a very credible and well-connected industry source who tells me that Kim Kardashian and The Dream are not dating. He said they are actually in the studio together working on her new album (!)
Here is the text:
“He wants to put out an album on her and write the songs… which is gonna be wack if u ask me lol”
I totally agree. Kim, baby, stick to what you know, hun.
Rapper T.I. continues the silly trend of rappers singing on tracks on this collabo off his upcoming No Mercy album, featuring Eminem.
Below, T.I.’s artist Young Dro reads the tracklist and reveals the album features for T.I.’s No Mercy album. The features include Eminem, Drake, Kid Cudi Trey Songz, the Dream, Christina Aguilera and Kanye West. Sounds like No Mercy is destined to be a big seller!
First, Ne-Yo announces to the world that he had an arrangement with his best friend to have a baby for him. And now that the newborn is here — and struggling for her life in a Neonatal intensive care unit — he’s off in Alabama racing cars! Does that make sense to any of you?
I’m having a child with my best friend on the face of the planet. She’s a beautiful person and yes, we’re about to have a baby. We are not engaged, we have never been engaged.
I wonder how his “best friend,” Monyetta Shaw, feels now that he’s in Alabama racing cars with his boys 4 days after her baby was born 6 weeks prematurely?
Stylish Diva Rihanna was spotted wearing a long neon red lacefront wig while out in New York City today. Rihanna is in town to promote her new album, LOUD. According to SPIN magazine, Rihanna will sell “million of copies” of her stellar 5th studio album:
Oh, lady, you just earned our 15 bucks. Rihanna will sell millions of copies of Loud, her fifth album, and she’ll deserve every penny of it… This is a more mature nod to the bubbly pop that established her fame. And it’s a statement from a woman who’s come into her own, and who won’t be going anywhere that isn’t worth her while. We could all do worse than to follow her lead.
This season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV series is entirely scripted and even more fake than the previous 2 seasons (if that’s even possible).
2 weeks ago I received an email (as did TMZ, apparently) from a supposed loyal reader informing me that Sheree Whitfield’s $133,750 Aston Martin was repossessed by her attorneys for failing to pay them $80,000 in attorney’s fees.
Recognizing an obvious publicity stunt to drive up ratings, I ignored the email. The next day the story was all over TMZ and the blogs. It’s obvious that this episode was sponsored by Aston Martin.
Anyway, I fell asleep on last night’s episode of RHOA, but Rodney Ho of the AJC’s Radio & TV Talk blog took the time to watch last night’s episode and give his readers a rundown.
Sheree spends the episode prepping, then doing a sexy rumba at a charity event called “Dancing Stars of Atlanta,” which was held in mid-May for the Alzheimer’s Association of Georgia. All the ladies minus Phaedra Parks (prepping for her baby’s imminent arrival) show up.
Though Sheree is being her usual diva-like, over-confident self, she actually pulls it off. The editors made it seem like the other housewives weren’t all that impressed (one said it wasn’t that tough of a dance) but she did get 9’s from the judges. Plus, she raised more than $5,000 for the charity, although she felt her housewife castmates were a bit chintzy.
And good news for us: Tiy-E Muhammad, the “love doctor” (but not the real thing), is still in the picture, despite his seeming lack of real wealth or interest in it. Sheree said he’s out of town for the charity event but trailers show him popping up next week. And in episode eight, Sheree finds out the truth about him. (I guess she didn’t Google his name because the facts about him faking his credentials are readily available online. The AJC wrote about it several years ago.)
Singer/producer Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas joins the chorus of outraged Michael Jackson family and fans protesting Sony’s decision to release an album of unfinished songs by Michael.
Will.i.am recently spoke out against the release by saying, “Whoever put it out and is profiting off of it, I want to see how cold they are,” he said. “He just wasn’t any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me, it’s disrespectful. There’s no honoring. Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they’re finished. Maybe if I never worked with him I wouldn’t have this perspective. He was very particular about how he wanted his vocals, the reverb he used … he was that hands-on.”
The album, entitled Michael, consists of tracks featuring Lenny Kravitz, 50 Cent and Akon. It will be released on December 14, just in time for Christmas.
Matt rocked a brown Louis Vuitton hoodie ($1,060) with damier print lining the interior, a Louis Vuitton antique bag printed shirt ($400), and a pair of Louis Vuitton Punchy sneaker boots ($545). He also accessorized with a Junya Watanabe Camo scarf and carried his Louis duffle bag and backpack.
Actress Vivica A. Fox was accompanied to Philadelphia by her man Slimm over the weekend. While there, Vivica hosted ‘Fantastique Fox – Baileys Signature Event’ at Thirteen Restaurant in the Marriott Hotel. Isn’t she stunning? They say that a groupie hacked Slimm’s cell phone (again) and stole some very personal pics of him. She is now shopping the pics on the Internets. Slimm won’t be happy about this, but his female (and male) fans will be.
According to celebrity blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com, singer/songwriter Ne-Yo and his fiancée bestie, Monyetta Shaw, delivered a baby girl on Friday (Nov. 12). Congrats to them!
According to People.com, the baby’s name is Madelyn Grace Smith, and she already has a nickname: it’s “Maddie” for short.
Monyetta’s baby shower was scheduled for today — and I was told that she did not attend.
From what I understand (from People.com), Maddie is 2 months premature, which means she can’t breathe on her own and requires a ventilator to assist her breathing. She will remain in neonatal intensive care at least until she is able to breathe on her own — and that’s if she has no other medical complications.
That is sad news for Ne-Yo and his bestie, Monyetta. Rumor has it that Ne-Yo and Monyetta have an agreement. Sort of like a surrogate mom.
Anyway, Monyetta used the loot to open a high end clothing boutique in Buckhead. I don’t care what anyone says about Monyetta: she’s a smart cookie for thinking long term and investing that money in a business.
Maddie’s birth – which wasn’t expected for another 2 months — occurred while Ne-Yo was hosting an exclusive private shopping event at David Yurman’s jewelry boutique inside the upscale Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta on Friday.
According to Tami:
Ne-Yo welcomed everyone but stated that he couldn’t stay long because his fiancée was in labor. Later I found out he had a baby girl, congrats to Neyo and Monyetta! The event was a success and for a good cause!
