Comments Off on Zeboe Pullins, Zonnique’s Dad, Speaks Out

Last night I spoke briefly by phone with Zeboe Pullins, the father of Tameka "Tiny" Harris' 16-year-old daughter, Zonnique "Niq" Pullins. Zeboe called me to set the record straight about his relationship with his daughter, whom he loves dearly.

I can always tell which direction a conversation is going in when it starts off with "Look here miss lady..."

But Mr. Zeboe was charming, sincere and straight to the point. He chose his words carefully -- explaining that he and I are "from different worlds." (I took that to mean he doesn't read the blogs.)

Zeboe respectfully requested that his name be left out of topics of conversations on the blog, and that he didn't have anything to prove to my readers.

There were some tense moments between the presidential debate rematch between President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney at Hofstra University Tuesday. Governor Romney was concise and confident at the start of the debate, while Obama seemed anxious and fired up. The pressure was on and Obama appeared to rise to the occasion.

There was a heated exchange between President Obama and Gov. Romney as the two men stood toe to toe over Obama's failure to drill for oil on federal land, thereby causing the price of oil to skyrocket.

"You'll get your chance in a moment, I'm still speaking," said Romney at one point.

The heated exchange sparked an explosion of tweets on, including the above tweet one from Tameka Raymond.

Moderator Candy Crowley was totally incompetent, allowing Obama to completely dominate the debate with his constant interruptions. It's obvious who's corner Crowley was in tonight.

When a black voter pointedly asked Obama what have you done for me? Obama responded, "These last 4 years haven't been so good for you," without adequately explaining why he failed to keep promises he made to the people who elected him president.

  • The director of an Ohio soup kitchen is furious at vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan for showing up uninvited, donning a crisp white apron and washing CLEAN pans for a photo op.

    Normally I would say so what? All politicians are the same: they pander to voters, then after they are elected the voters cease to exist in their eyes.

    But this seemingly innocent faux pas comes on the heels of Mr. Ryan's anemic performance against VP Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate. Not to mention that President Obama is leading Ryan's running mate Mitt Romney in early voting.

    A 2-year-old girl abducted from New Birth Missionary Baptist church this morning has been found safe, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

    Myrai Robinson was found safe inside a van around 1 p.m. at Lithonia high school, not far from the church. The van was reported stolen from the fitness center at New Birth Missionary Baptist in the 6400 block of Woodrow Road, the AJC reports.

    The girl’s caregiver had driven to the fitness center at New Birth and went inside for a few minutes, according to the AJC. The caregiver left the keys in the van but the van's engine was not running.

    When she returned at about 9:30 a.m. the child and the van, a 2010 Dodge Caravan, were missing, police said.

    It is not clear if the suspect who stole the van is a student at Lithonia high school.

  • Singer Rihanna is reportedly "furious" that word leaked about her closely guarded pregnancy. The 24-year-old "Diamonds" singer had planned to announce her pregnancy as part of the promotion leading up to her album release in November. But those plans are now scrapped.

    Rihanna, who is pregnant by her on-again boyfriend, Chris Brown, 23, made it her mission to get impregnated by him in hopes of winning him away from longtime girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. But Brown and Karrueche have been seen together publicly numerous times -- even after RiRi forced him to go public by announcing his split from Karrueche -- something that is wildly uncharacteristic of Brown who swore he would give no interviews or statements to the media this year.

    Yesterday, I told you the names of cast members of Mona Scott-Young's much talked about new reality TV series titled Hip Hop Gossip Girls. The information was passed on to me by someone who actually appears in one of the episodes. (She was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement). The names she gave me were correct (at the time). It took me a few days to write that post -- in which time, the names of the cast changed.

    So I was not wrong about a couple of the names -- I was just late. Anyway, celebrity blogger Tattletailzz has the names of a few of the cast members:

    Sharon Carpenter (Global Grind) Kim Osorio (known mainly for Source Magazine and a book about industry secrets exposed) and JasFly from Vibe. We believe more will be announced.

    We also hear that Sandra Rose was asked but she did refuse.

    Tattletailzz left out the other two cast members: Necole Bitchie and Angela Yee.

    According to VIBE, radio jocks Angie Martinez and Miss Info are no longer members of the cast (I'm told they quit).

    So there you have it. Warm tea is just as tasty as hot tea. Keep it here for more details!

  • According to national polls, President Obama is slightly ahead of challenger Mitt Romney among early voters. Obama is under pressure to turn in a sparkling performance in tonight's 2nd presidential debate. Romney dominated Mr. Obama in the 1st presidential debate. It's a sure bet that the president won't take the governor lightly tonight.

    The Huffington Post reports that "Obama leads Romney by 59 percent to 31 percent among early voters, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling data compiled in recent weeks." The lead is small but it is over the 10% measurement of polls' accuracy.

    Alexis Welch is one lucky woman. She stood by her man, NBA star A'mare Stoudemire, when he was out sowing his wild oats, and he rewarded her loyalty by asking her to be his wife. Most women would have bounced at the first sign of cheating (especially with a public figure like Ciara). But Welch (age unknown) realized that a man is going to be a man -- and regardless of what he does in the streets, her role is to be a good mother to his children.

    Stiletto Jill reports that Alexis attended Fall 2013 bridal shows with Stoudemire's credit card looking for that perfect wedding gown to wear when she walks down the aisle with A'mare at their wedding next year. Some of the designers included Ines Di Santo, Reem AcraKenneth Pool, Christos and Rivini. Good for her!
