Last night on 'Braxton Family Values,' the sisters meet with their therapist Dr. Sherry to discuss their emotional conflicts with each other. Toni Braxton irked her sister Traci's Soul by suggesting that Traci lose "20 to 30 lbs now. And stop thinking that her tummy sticking out like that is hot, 'cause it's not."
Toni added: "You're too cute of a girl not to care about... to let herself go like that." Toni also said Traci's tummy wasn't always like that "so that lets me think she's comfortable."
The nerve of Toni to decide when another woman is comfortable with her body when Toni is sooo uncomfortable in her own skin!
Toni was extremely insensitive to suggest that her sister Traci lose weight to fit Toni's jacked up standard of beauty. Toni, with 20 lbs of weave on her head and a face that is surgically altered beyond recognition, is not so perfect herself! Isn't it funny that people who think they are so perfect always see their flaws in others but not in themselves?
Clearly, Traci is happy and comfortable with her weight -- which upsets her sisters who hate the fact that Traci accepts her beauty. Traci probably has no problems keeping a man, unlike her thin sisters who think they're so perfect.
I realize that this is just a reality show, but Toni irked me with that comment. I'm shocked that Towanda (the more level headed sister) didn't speak up for Traci. And what kind of therapist is Dr. Sherry to day Toni was "just being honest"?
Dr. Sherry should have turned that mirror back toward Toni so she could see the hurt in herself. Because only hurt people hurt others.

Normally I wouldn't waste my time with this, but some of you ladies still don't understand that this fake beef between Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams is manufactured to drive up ratings for the upcoming season of 'Basketball Wives.'
Even professional sports groupie Jill realizes something in the milk ain't clean:
Basketball Wives returns to VH1 on February 20th. I’m going to start with that because I really hope that’s what is behind the public back and forth between Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams. The grown-up in me hopes that’s all this really is. Williams recently gave an interview where she explained what she feels Evelyn’s beef is with her. Jennifer claims Evelyn is jealous of her friendship with Nene Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame and that Evelyn is always in competition.

Apparently Halle Berry's nanny doesn't have good karma because a judge today tossed out her restraining order petition against Gabriel Aubry.
As you know, Alliance Kamdem, 29, took out a police report last week accusing Aubry, 35, of "ongoing" verbal and physical abuse towards her. Kamdem claims Aubry hurled racial epithets at her and shoved her into a door while she was holding Nahla last Wednesday.
In her petition, Kamdem cited another alleged incident in June in which she claims Gabriel violently pushed her out a door.
According to celebrity gossip website, TMZ.com, Kamdem "also said Gabriel didn't like her from the moment she began her duties as a nanny last June. She claims Gabriel said, "You are a spy," and "Nahla doesn't like you, she doesn't want you here."
She said that while she was performing her nanny duties on the set of Halle's movie in Spain, Aubry "would walk over and violently grab/take Nahla away from me."
But the judge wasn't convinced. He called Kamdem's accusations "insufficient and speculative" -- and he advised her to take the matter up in family court. The judge rejected her claims probably because what Kamdem was saying didn't make sense without Aubry's side of the story.
Kamdem has since quit her position as Halle's nanny.

Gabe Aubry has serious issues. This, according to Halle Berry, who is taking the Canadian underwear model back to court for losing his cool and assaulting her nanny.
Radaronline.com reports that Aubry hurled racial epithets and physically assaulted their daughter Nahla's nanny last week. It seems that Aubry kept Nahla home from school for 2 days because he claimed she the 3-year-old was sick. But Aubry neglected to tell Nahla's nanny, who went to the child's private school looking for her.
"The nanny went to pick Nahla up at school and she wasn't there, so she went to Gabriel's home," a source told RadarOnline.com. "Gabriel and the nanny got into an argument because no one alerted her that Nahla didn't go to school."
The source told RadarOnline.com Aubry allegedly called the nanny a racial slur, before things took a turn for the physical.
"She picked up Nahla to leave and Gabriel yelled at her and shoved her out the door so hard that she hit the wall -- while she had Nahla in her arms!" the source alleges, adding that the nanny claims the abuse is ongoing.
According to Radaronline.com, the nanny is so distraught that she has turned in her resignation. Good for Halle for standing up for her people!
According to TMZ, the police report has been filed. Click image to read the report.
V-103 morning show co-host Frank Ski threw a birthday bash for his wife, Tanya Rodriguez on Saturday at his popular Frank Ski Restaurant & Lounge in midtown Atlanta. Celebs such as Antonia Wright and the Braxton sisters (Braxton Family Values) stopped by to wish Tanya a happy 30th birthday.
We were surprised to see Trina Braxton accompanied by her husband, Gabe Solis (far right), after she caught him cheating online. Maybe Trina accepts the fact that most men are genetically pre-wired to cheat in order to further the human species (but that's for another blog post).
Frank Ski's Restaurant & Lounge is located at 2110 Peachtree Rd. in NW Atlanta. The restaurant offers Southern food and features outdoor patios and private dining as well as a bar and lounge area.

Loyal reader Lisa McGhee sent in this exclusive cover for Amber Rose's much-anticipated 1st single. Rose once made a living polishing stripper poles in Philadelphia until she lucked up with one of her customers -- Kanye West.
Kanye was badly in need of beard services, having battled pesky ghey rumors for most of his storied career. Kanye made Amber into a star of sorts, and she made him look virile and very straight.
Eventually, Kanye got tired of Amber using him and he kicked her to the curb. So the former bisexual stripper found another sucker in smoked out rapper Wiz Khalifa, and now she's using him to get famous.
Anyway, Amber's single "Fame" will be released exclusively on Perez Hilton's blog on Tuesday at 9am EST. But we don't read that blog. So we'll wait until Miss Jia posts the single on her blog to hear if it's any good.
I’m so excited to release my first song… It’s CRAZY! Working with Wiz is a dream come true; I am fortunate to have his support.
This is a very personal song to me that I wanted to record for my fans. I want people to see the world from my eyes, you know, from BEHIND MY SHADES! It’s my interpretation of what it means to be “FAMOUS,” which is not something superficial but instead being self-confident and happy with who you are.
You can feel famous everyday if you believe in yourself! Source
We have more information for you on the birth of Beyonce's first child from TMZ.com, and our Lenox Hill hospital source.
According to our source, Beyonce and her surrogate were admitted to the upper East side hospital on the same maternity floor. Other women in labor were also admitted to the floor despite rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z rented the entire floor for an absurd $1.3 million.
Our source said, "Lenox Hill does not turn away expectant mothers to cater to the needs of celebrities."
The NY Daily News confirmed that Beyonce was admitted to the hospital under the name Ingrid Jackson. But we're told the surrogate mother was also admitted to Lenox Hill under an assumed alias.
According to TMZ.com, hospital brass held a meeting leading up to the delivery to discuss a security plan for the birth. The meeting between execs and security was held Friday afternoon and strict security was in place almost immediately, preparing for the Saturday delivery.
Such an elaborate security plan was required to conceal the fact that Beyonce was not the one giving birth. Security cameras were taped over, or turned off -- which is a violation of hospital policies.
Our source said the baby girl was delivered via c-section while the mother was given an epidural to block the pain. The birth mother was allowed to briefly hold the baby and then the baby was handed off to Beyonce who waited in an adjoining room.

Washed up rapper Jim Jones, 35, tells his side of the marriage proposal story in this sneak peek of next week's Love & Hip Hop. Some viewers of last week's episode thought Jones' proposal to his nagging girlfriend, Chrissy Lampkin, 40, wasn't meaningful enough. But Jones, who pretends to be a hard thug in the streets, shows his soft side when describing his and Chrissy's 7-year relationship. "That's like, uh, the princess kissing the frog. I got my own fairy tale going on," he says.

LeBron James celebrated his 27th birthday on New Year's Eve by proposing to his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, at the Shelborne Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Florida.
According to SPLASH News, this is the cake that was made for NBA player Lebron James' 27th birthday. The call was made 2 days before the party. The instructions: make a birthday cake that is fit for a King. The baker, Alethea Hickman, (pictured above with her royal creation) was promised publicity for her bakery Hickman's Passion for Pastry. The Shelborne would receive the $3,000 cake as a freebie in exchange.
But Hickman was surprised to see a different cake in photos tweeted worldwide on Twitter.com on Jan. 1. After getting in touch with James' people, Hickman was told her work wasn't fit for the king: "It just wasn't what was expected. When LeBron's people saw it, they just didn't want to use it and decided to bring their own cake."
The cake is ugly, but at least she got the free publicity.
