On Friday night, R&B Diva Monica had the distinction of hosting the 2012 Honda Battle of the Bands dinner at the Georgia Dome at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta (above). She wore a beautiful gold embroidered floor length gown to the dinner!

And on Saturday, Monica thrilled the audience by performing during the 10th Anniversary Honda Battle of the Bands annual extravaganza!

    I like monica and she is a beautiful woman, so will not say anything bad about her I was there saturday and as a Band geek/head the battle needs to do something more. They need to stop with all these performances for real that is all.

    @ Ryan ain’t that the truth! Good hairstylist are hard to find, just check out Nene’s head :clown:

  • molyfe

    @screwball69 its self hatred. Black people syndrome. They can’t be happy for anybody if its not them. I don’t know why sr keeps posting about Monica because her beloved fan base has no interest in normal people or people who are real. Thank god she is happy and don’t give a flying fig what none of you think about her because your not providing for her, her husband or kids. Karma is a bitch keep hating.

    ____________________________________________________________________________

    Although I have no idea who you are talking about or if this is just a “general statement” I would like to point out that SOME PEOPLE try to appear to be something they aren’t.

    I think that’s what people don’t like. Sorta like someone always quoting from the bible and then living the opposite way. Again, not knowing who you are referring to but I know that some people stay on Twitter praising the lord to try and keep people fooled. :yes:

  • molyfe

    Man unless you know her don’t assume you do. How do you presume to know she is pretending to be something she is not? She is the realest chick in the game. Check her history. She has been through a lot and came through. So hell she is not what the hell you want her to be. So hell what? Are you prefect? Are you without flaws? If not shut the hell up. Stop telling lies about her on your site nobody knows about trying to make a come up. Its childish. She is exactly what she says she is. She is one of the few celebs you can actually approach and talk to like a human being. Sweep around your own door before you start sweeping around othes. Live and let live.

  • Daisy

    NeNes hair looks fine to me I like the short cut/style she wears :shrug: I think her make up/clothes are on point too

    Dude, I don’t even know who you are talking about. :shrugs:

    I”m just sayin, SOMETIMES people aren’t who they project to be. Try to act religious but really let trains get ran on em. Act like they all into family, but then is known for trying to break up happy families.

    I ain’t judging. Chit, do what you do. Just don’t try and lie about it after the fact. That’s the part I don’t get. Ain’t like it’s helpinig your sales or anything like that.

    But hey, if they “happy” I guess that’s all that matters.

  • molyfe

    She can do what the hell she whats on twitter without your permission. How is she living the opposite way? Mind your business and stop getting caught up in the girls life. She don’t know you and it will probley be the death of you. She is not down in the dumps so you hate her? Fyi she has a great family and is doing her no matter how you feel about her.

  • KyCakes

    Whoa :blink: what the hell is going on with MAN and molyfe?

  • molyfe

    Man your a fucking liar and you know that. Unless you were there you don’t know if its true. Alot of stories been written about her and they are not true. Unless you have the receipts your a liar. And even if true eveybody deserves happiness and forgiveness. They deserve love. She has always said she is not perfect and has been through a lot and done a lot of things she should not have but she came through. People can change and deserve a second chance in life. Hell 90% of the people you guys worship have a past and have shit they would not wnat us to know about. Monica has spoken on her mistakes. Again i say you are childdish and spiteful. Grow the fcu up. If you grudge her the happy space she is in her life just say it. You are always up professing your love for kk. How contradictory you are.

  • molyfe

    Monica did’nt break up anybodys family. If you talking about Shannon Brown form the video shoot he was on twitter flirting with her. He was not with his bm when he met Monica. He was not even coy or shady about persuing her. Her first boyfriend was not married he got married after she broke up with him. This is jsut damn ridic I am done. Damn gossisp monger.
