In case you missed last night’s episode of the partially scripted Bravo Reality TV show, ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ you can watch the full episode after the break. I didn’t watch the program last night, so I can’t fill you in on much. All I know is an infamous Atlanta male stripper by the name of “Ri-DICK-ulous” showed up at Kandi’s 35th birthday party and turnt it out.

But what is going on with Kim’s lips though? Why are they so puffy?

According to Washington Post political analyst, Joseph Curl, U.S. President Barack Obama doesn’t want a second term in office. With less than a year to go before the 2012 presidential elections, Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign efforts have been virtually silent.

Curl writes:

There are only two ways to look at the Obama re-election campaign right now: Either the upstart candidate who stunned the world when he defeated the Clinton machine to capture the Democratic nomination three years ago has lost every bit of that massive mojo, or the bruised and battered president, after three years in office, just doesn’t want another spin in the Oval Office.

It’s obvious from Obama’s words and actions over the past two years that Obama is ready to throw the towel in and return to the private sector along with his wife and children.

From the day he was elected, Mr. Obama has made it clear to the American public that all he really wanted was to make history. Obama, who is considered by many to be a narcissist, didn’t sign up to work hard or to put up with disgruntled Americans seeking jobs and a stimulated economy.

Democratic strategists Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas Schoen don’t want to see Obama run for re-election. “He should step aside,” they wrote, “for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

Do you kids recall when I posted this Blind Item from the NY Post:

Which hip-hop artist drove up to his agent’s office in a $200,000 car, wearing a $50,000 wristwatch, to beg for money because he’s “dead broke” and needed $5,000 for child support? . . .

It turns out that the Blind Item might have been about rapper Bow Wow after all.

According to gossip website, the taxman cometh for both Bow Wow and singer Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins for unpaid taxes.

TMZ found documents filed in Florida by the federal government that says Weezy owes the government exactly $91,105.61 in unpaid taxes for the year 2006.

T-Boz’s tax troubles are a little more complicated.

I remember the first time I met the Braxton Sisters, the singing siblings of superstar Toni Braxton. The chance meeting occurred in a hotel suite in Charlotte, NC in 1996. I was there to shoot a music conference for VIBE magazine, and I bumped into LA Reid’s brother, Bryant Reid, in the hotel lobby.

At the time Bryant was managing the Braxton Sisters, so he paid me to shoot a party he was having for the girls in his suite that night.

The picture on the right is one that I took in 1996. At the time, the group consisted of Towanda, left, and teenagers Tamar, 19, center, and Trina, 17. They had just released an album, titled So Many Ways, on Atlantic Records.

Last night, BET aired Soul Train Awards 2011 which was pre-taped in Atlanta on Nov. 17. Tamar was the highlight of the night as she sang a rousing tribute to Soul legend Gladys Knight, with Dave Hollister, Kenny Lattimore and Freddie Jackson backing Tamar up as the honorary Pips for the night.

Tamar’s performance surprised and electrified social networking sites like, where users compared her sultry vocals to her sister Toni Braxton, and even Beyonce!

Below are just a few of the thousands of positive tweets about Tamar’s performance from! By the way, Tamar’s sisters, Towanda and Trina Braxton will chat live with readers via Ustream right here on Wednesday! So check back for that.

Watch Tamar’s performance after the break!

Even though Beyonce is supposedly 8 months pregnant, she has not gained a pound anywhere but in her tummy. But her Stans continue to insist that her nose is spreading. In an effort to put an end to the nonsense that Beyonce’s nose is spreading, we placed two photos side by side that clearly shows Beyonce’s nose is exactly the same size as it was last year.

In fact, in the picture on the left — which was taken on Nov. 23, 2010 — Bey’s nose looks pudgier than the in the pic on the right, taken Nov. 20, 2011.

But even with clear photographic evidence, Bey’s Stans will still continue to see what they want to see.

Soul legend Mary J Blige performed an intimate concert at the sold out Tabernacle in support of her new album, My Life: The Journey Continues, in Atlanta last night. After the concert, she attended an after party at Luckie Lounge with her celebrity friends Monica, Jeezy, and Devyne Stephens.

Oh what tangled webs we weave, when first we practice to deceive . . .

After months of lies, trickery and deceit, singer Beyonce has released a new video to further manipulate the media and her crazy Stans.

Remember I told you last month that I’d spoken at length with a source who works for a mainstream publication?

Well, according to the source, who begged for anonymity, it was determined through the coordinated efforts of other mainstream publications and photo wire services, that Beyonce has not been seen or photographed entering or leaving a doctor’s office for prenatal care over the past 6 months.

We’ve seen many paparazzi photos of Beyonce entering and leaving several office buildings in NYC, but sources confirm there are no obstetrics or gynecology offices located in those buildings.

Anyone who has ever given birth over the last 100 years knows that prenatal visits are a mandatory requirement for the health of any baby. But even though Beyonce now claims to be 8 months pregnant (lol) — she has not been seen visiting a doctor’s office every week, or even bi-weekly, as is the norm for a woman in the 3rd trimester.

But she has been seen getting on planes and flying in her 3rd trimester, even though there is an increased risk of developing blood clots on airplanes when flying long distances.

This is only the latest in a series of missteps by Beyonce since she surprised the world with her magical “pregnancy” on the MTV VMAs in September.
