      Damn Hot 97 is pretty much dead now. The only other legend they have now is Funk Flex. They still have the hottest music though in NYC.

      Even though I am no longer in the tri-state, I wouldnt miss her anyways. My sister and I met her once when she came to visit a school in New Jersey and she was quite the nasty one.

      Wendy is nasty in person also, but that was back, late 90s, early 2000s… so a lot could have taken place in 14-15 years to get rid of the nasties…

      um-on Monifa, her fian-now wife was always sharp in a cheryl miller sort of way… I mean if i rolled that way.

      congrats to Monifah. that r&b divas show is a bit much at times, but, Monifah seems to be the most consistent in behaving like a ‘grown woman’ and not so much like a “diva” (whatever that word means, nowadays) :tea:

      and i did love it when she called Angie out on going behind Selena’s back and booking a gig. :clap: but, again, she did it in a grown-up way and wasn’t mean-spirited, just truthful. :lol:

      mrs_warren_08 says:

      I never got the vibe that Maxwell was gay. I always thought he was a heaux. And I always thought it was Sisqo. I thought Nikko was just weird but that purple hair flip Mohawk is screaming it’s raining me. Has he came out or not?

      sassyshe says:

      :dead: to that link

      Ima have to defend Ang on the Nokio situation. When Angie started messing with Nokio it was when the group was blowing up and Nokio was not flaming. As a matter of fact Nokio was the one who used to roll with Ruff Rhyders deep and always in some fight. It was not till years later that he stepped out yhe closet. Now by the time she married him he might have been ghey but when they first started, maybe to the point of conception he was under cover

      There was a big fallout with Chuck D and Rosenberg recently. I’m thinking maybe Angie Mar leaving Hot 97 is a casualty of that beef. :thinking: I’m just speculating, but her social media announcement on the same day saying it’s her last show doesn’t sound like a planned resignation to me.

      Man if she goes to Power 105 that could get messy back and forth on the radio!!!!

      she must have weathered many a sleepless night… was she the early morning radio personality or something? she’s looking very long in the tooth. maybe she should moisturize and hydrate… :yes:

    35. 35

      Morning :hi:
      If Angie does go to 105 that’s messy. She said she was going in a new direction as in career path… If she just went to another radio station as a personality :stop: if she is in management then :thinking:

      Exactly… but what should do (hot 97) is bring Miss JOnes back in the afternoons to battle angie.. They just announced she flipped the switch to Power 105.1 2-6 drive. Miss Jones although she was/is a bish. The bish was funny..and could keep up with Wendy in terms of radio Antics. I really miss Miss Jones. Lemme go e-mail and ask her the tea…and if she’s coming back cuz she could probably save that station. Ebro is running it into the ground.
