Updated 3: Stevie J Instagram’d this selfie from Benzino’s hospital room. Only TMZ can turn a flesh wound into multiple gunshot wounds. Smh.

    I just updated the post with a photo of Benzino in a hospital room. They said he’s in intensive care. He doesn’t look like he’s in critical condition. I see the nurse’s chair next to his bed. So maybe he is in critical condition.

    He’s in stable condition. Probably just a flesh wound. I wonder if Mona had cameras rolling at the funeral?

    After analyzing the photos I have concluded that Benzino has a flesh wound in one arm, not multiple gunshot wounds like TMZ claimed. I hope this wasn’t another one of Mona’s scripted scenes.

    IDK what could have happened to warrant you being shot by a family member at your mother’s funeral…smh. There is absolutely no respect for ANYTHING anymore. When you pull out a gun and start shooting in a funeral procession you are putting several lives in danger..and if you didn’t have respect for your uncle…how about allowing your grandmother to be buried in peace. This whole thing is just sad.

    I’m glad Benzino is ok….

    Something is off about these pictures. Why are they mirrored images one pictures it was the right side and the other images it’s the left side. Something in the milk ain’t clean. I’m not sure if the whole thing is fake or just hyped up more than it should be.

    This ignorance has happened at funerals of people who were gang or drug affiliated. Sandra you have spent time to help people understand what love, narcissism and various medical conditions are. Perhaps on a slow news day, if you don’t mind, reminding people what respect, common courtesy, morality and what qualities they should look for in a mate. Yes, these are common sense values that should have been taught by their loved ones but the lack is obvious. Many of my family members skipped out on a relative’s funeral this weekend to avoid being harmed by ignorance.

    I am sure mannie mannie people will be tuned in :sarcasm:
    Tuned in to the wrong shatt. :eek:

    I feel bad that this woman could not be laid to rest HOWEVER this cat is on a show that puts dumb thoughts into our youth and grown folks (yep said it) heads and is shooting pics from the hospital—–just doing too much—so whatevs :shrug:

    spiceykay says:

    @nhere I was actually meaning the bandage arm being on opposite sides and the sling. I believe unless something happened within the family that caused a death then family should be especially closer during that time.

  27. 27
    Nhere says:

    @spicykay I totally glazed over the bandage, that’s ridiculous. The family does normally come together in those times. But it’s sad when a good majority of the family couldn’t be there for one another due to word on the street, and person loss their life due to a certain lifestyle. You want to be there for your people, no one wants to risk their life in the process.

    @dtts everyone is on to the reality show antics. If this is a part of that, too bad they had to stoop so low. Most of what we counter today esp in the media is designed to draw down our intelligence, that’s a given. I’ve seen better days, there is no balance now. You damn near have to sit a grown person on your lap and teach them right from wrong. Shyt is just steadily declining is all I’m saying. :nun:

    Thank you, ITA!!! I just watched the “Unsung Hollywood” on **** Gregory and what he did in his fight for our civil rights. Now the white agenda is using these “reality” shows to show us as less than (when did it become OK for grown women to have fist fights on TV and get accolades for it??) made me sad as heyl!! :cry: No shade to anyone who watchest them, just not my cup of tea.

    Oh wells, go UConn!! :bball:

    @SpicyKay…GOOD detail eye. I too went back to look at pictures and it appears the bandage and sling have switched arms….Now I don’t know what to say about this…It appears that the shots and arrest were REAL…but I’m beginning to wonder about the extent of these injuries???!!

    Nhere, I had time of my life watching a teen watching a reality show for ten minutes whilst over her mothers house :huh: :huh: :huh: Friday night…

    It’s a shame
    It’s embarrassing
    I am not going back over that ladies house either! :lol: #ionsubscribetoeverykindifstupid

    I wanted to tell her to teach her daughter blah blah blah BUT both mother and daughter act like these Stupid Ass Reality Show Bishes with no couth and no tact :shrug:

    At first I was very upset but then to the life of me I couldn’t understand why Stevie-J was allowed in the ICU room (usually it’s immediate family only) and why was he taking pics and posting them on social media??? I read where he was in critical condition but it doesn’t look that way to me. I pray this is not a tv stunt… I’m still sorry for the loss of his mother though

    By the looks of that picture the only thing in critical condition is Benzino’s lineup :tea:

    I’m suspecting that Benzino #1 Didn’t pay for the funeral #2 Didn’t keep in contact with his mother #Had his mother living in poverty, those are the things that get family heated when you show up to your mother’s funeral with cameras but you been M.I.A since 96.

    They keep saying he was in a slow funeral procession when he got shot. But then a passing motorist stopped and took him to the hospital? Was he at the end of the funeral procession and they kept going and left him behind? Aren’t funeral processions escorted by motorcycle police? :shrug:

    @Matchstix: She doesn’t have a case. She willingly went back stage and even yelled out her social media handles :stop: The only way she will win will be if he just settles to get rid of her or if the can prove her reputation suffered. Being that she is a THOT…… I can’t see how that is true. BUT :thinking: He did call her a THOT several times on camera.. That doesn’t help. These rappers will have to start watching how they talk to and about these women. Might actually be interesting. If Gloria Allred gets a hold of it :no:

    @MisTaken

    She doesn’t have a case, I don’t even remember him calling her a “thot” to her face, he asked one of his crew members if she belonged to him…also, he TOLD her that it was blog territory and once she was informed all she cared about was whether she looked good on camera and then like you said she shouted out her Instagram handle…if this chick don’t GO ON somewhere! She’s embarrassed and she SHOULD be…her behavior should not be something young girls want to mimic…THIRSTY broad!

  65. 65
    MisTaken if you nasty *closes housecoat* :winky: says:

    @Match: I get it and I agree with you but in this litigious society we live in where people sue AND win at the drop of a hat I say nothing is cut and dry. On one hand she consented to being in blog territory. On the other he did call her a THOT on camera. Whether to her face or not it was documented and spread across the internet :shrugs: I say F her. She needs to be shamed.
