By now everyone knows (or should know) that season 3 of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ was a complete sham!

Most of the fraudulent details are already known to you: that Greg and NeNe Leakes were (allegedly) told by the show's producers to fake their marriage problems; that season 3 newcomer Phaedra Parks, a local celebrity attorney (in good standing until now), was forced to admit that her "character" was fake to save her law practice; that the supper club that known con artist Peter Thomas allegedly ran was ALREADY SHUT DOWN even before season 3 started filming, and that the club was reopened just to shoot several key scenes leading up to Cynthia and Peter's wedding (which was all paid for by the show's producers); that season 2 cast member Lisa Wu walked away from the show (with her dignity intact) rather than comply with the producers' request to pretend her marriage to Ed was in shambles (good for her!); and that cast member Kandi Burruss (who is in REAL GOOD with one of the show's producers) agreed to wear that ratty raccoon wig on her head all season just for laughs -- that never exactly materialized.

All in all, the third season of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ was an undignified mess -- a train wreck that left the track even before the season premiered. It will be difficult for the show's producers to top the lack of entertainment, the lack of drama or the boring scripts from this season. Will be there a fourth season? It's highly doubtful, but a key element is the fact that Kim Zolciak is pregnant. No doubt if the show tanks, there will likely be a spin-off featuring Kim and her bastard spawn.

Here's the AJC's Rodney Ho's recap of last night's 90-minute finale, in case you missed it:

Cynthia is talking to her sister about her dire financial situation. They can’t pay the $3,000 guarantee for the bar at the Fernbank Museum, the site of the wedding. She doesn’t have the cash because it all went into the Uptown Restaurant & Lounge Peter had just closed. Her dad can’t give her the money but her mom eventually bails her out.

It’s the morning of Cynthia’s wedding and she looks like she’s ready to go to her funeral. With just nine hours before her weddings, Cytnahis takes a walk by herself to clear her head.

(As a commercial break approaches, the camera guy points to a STOP sign. Subtle!)

Cynthia’ s mom Barbara finds her and expresses doubts. “I don’t like the way he handles his business,” she says. “I did it and see where it got me.” She said she feels Peter is abusing her financially. Cynthia keeps making excuses. “It breaks my heart,” Barbara says. “He needs to take care of you and Noelle.”

But it’s clear Cynthia wants to keep going.

Although I don't believe this story at all, it does illustrate the lengths that attention whores will go to keep their names in the news. We already know that rapper 50 Cent and comedienne Chelsea Handler's "relationship" was a publicity stunt, since Chelsea is a closet racist.

The only reason this is in the blogs is because Chelsea is supposedly dating wealthy real estate developer Andre Balazs.

According to Popeater.com:

UsMagazine.com reports that a source said Handler, 35, dumped 50 Cent just before the holidays, leaving the 35-year-old rapper "heartbroken."

The source said 50 Cent was determined to win her back and, "spent Christmas sending her gifts, but she sent them back. She put a note on one that said, 'I can buy my own gifts.'"

Nicki Minaj, 26, swapped out her cotton candy bird's nest wig for a platinum blond lacefront before leaving her hotel for a couple of planned appearances at 2 nightclubs in London early this morning while we slept.

NFL player Chad Ochocinco was pictured with Evelyn Lozada ("Basketball Wives") before celebrating his 33rd birthday at Prime 112 Restaurant and later Mansion Nightclub, both in Miami Beach, Florida. Chad and Evelyn, 41, continue their charade of pretending she is his fiancee so they can get a spin-off reality show. Everybody, except the clueless, knows that theirs is a fake relationship. I could go into more details, but I won't because they bore me. LOVE her shoes though!

Rapper Trina, 32, joined Chad and Evelyn, and a host of hangers ons at Prime 112 Restaurant on South Beach to celebrate Chad's 33rd birthday. Trina is tight, but she will have to drop about 10 lbs if she hopes to retain her title as the Baddest Bish in Hip Hop.

Just when you think troubled 35-year-old rapper 50 Cent can't get any more stupid than he already is -- he outdoes himself.

Earlier this week, Twitter was abuzz with the news that Curtis Jackson made an instant $8.7 million in the stock market by urging his Twitter followers to buy shares of penny stock that he owned.

“You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford” Fiddy tweeted. “They are no joke get in now,” he added.

Jackson reportedly received 30 million shares of H&H stock in a private placement last October. H&H closed at 39 cents on Monday, up 29 cents, netting Jackson’s shares the aforementioned $8.7 million.

But is it really that easy to rake in millions of dollars on the stock market? Of course not. If it were that easy then stock brokers would jump on Twitter giving insider advice to their followers.

According to the SEC website, a broker or investor will spark a federal investigation into their stock trades if they are caught using artificial means to manipulate or raise the price of their stock.

It is likely that Fiddy will never see a penny of that cash. He hurriedly erased all of his tweets, sending his stock plummeting. But it doesn't matter. I'm sure the feds have all the evidence they need to pursue an investigation.

Maybe 50 Cent should have consulted with his BFF, Martha Stewart, who was convicted of lying about insider trading in 2004.

Beyone's mom Tina Knowles appeared on 'The Ellen Show' yesterday to hawk her clothing line. She also took the opportunity to deny rampant rumors that her daughter is once again pregnant by Jay Z.

"The truth is that it's not Beyonce that's pregnant, it's me," Knowles joked. "I'm kidding y'all. I'm 56. No, it's not true" she said in reference to the rumor that seems to pop up whenever someone in the Knowles family has something to promote, such as an album or clothing line.

US Weekly broke the fake news yesterday on its website. The magazine (probably with the blessings of the Knowles) manufactured a blatant lie, and even added an old quote from Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles to add legitimacy.

Every reliable major news outlet picked up the story and reported on it as fact, because US Weekly was once considered a legitimate news source.

"With all the rumors, I should have about 5 or 6 grandchildren by now," said Knowles. The segment will air today. Check your local listings for times.

According to NewsOXY.com, Beyonce is not pregnant for the 20th time with Jay Z's 2nd child, as reported first by US Weekly magazine this morning. Are some magazines that desperate sell issues?

Beyonce pregnant report with Jay-Z false. A pregnant story about Beyonce and how her and Jay-Z are expecting their first child is false. Sources say Beyonce is not pregnant and that the report is totally "misleading and false."

It's a shame that there are so many mistrusted Web sites that report such inaccuracy in an attempt to get traffic on the Internet. We've seen these pregnant rumors before. They have been fabricated time and time again.

Sources close to the couple say Beyonce "is not planning to have a baby anytime soon." There is truth that the singer does want to have children. When that happens, we'll be on it like hotcakes on the griddle.

For the past few days, the Internets have been buzzing with reports of an alleged relationship between comedians 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler.

Yes, I know that at one point in time 50 Cent was a rapper, but he's not anymore. Or at least he's not being being taken seriously as a rapper anymore.

Yesterday, media whore Chelsea tweeted this disclaimer on her Twitter page.

Either 50 Cent is slowly losing his mind or it's already gone. His bizarre behavior on the online social network Twitter.com, is one indication of that. Another indication is his penchant for ridiculous publicity stunts.

It didn't take a rocket scientist to realize that their alleged romance was bullsh*t.

Aside from the fact that Chelsea doesn't come across as the sort of woman who would even date a black guy, isn't she a lesbian?

All you had to do was look at the past history of the perpetrators and you would know if they were capable of pulling stunts.

I have to chuckle at the bloggers who fell for this ruse. I'm glad I didn't entertain the foolishness. If you don't see it on my blog, it means one of 2 things: either it's not true, or I don't care about it.

Troubled producer Kanye West continues his quest to return to relevancy status in the eyes of music consumers.

After joining Twitter in typical grandstanding fashion, Kanye announced that he would start giving away his wack music for free in a concept called "G.O.O.D. Fridays". But we knew that was just a publicity stunt that wouldn't last (who gives away free music?)

This morning - after leaking an unfinished copy of his own track "Lost in the World", Kanye announced -- in typical grandstanding fashion -- that he would end his "G.O.O.D. Fridays" giveaways just 3 weeks after its inception. Kanye is so predictable.

Anyway, after leaking his own track, Kanye took to his Twitter page to blame a "hacker" for the leak:

Due to blogs leaking unfinished songs from my actual album I've decided to pass on Good Fridays this week.

It's messed up that one hacker can mess everything up for everyone... I love to take a year to finish my songs and deliver them to you guys in their most completed form. It would have seemed like since I give free music every week even the lowest form of human being would respect that enough not to leak unfinished songs from my real album. [link]

If Kanye's album sounds like "Lost In The World", he might as well cancel the whole album because it will flop.

Troubled singer chris brown is in hot water for stealing the beat of another track for his own club single "Yeah 3x".

Calvin Harris was stunned to hear the similarities between his single "I'm Not Alone" and brown's club-tinged song off his upcoming “F.A.M.E.” (Forgiving All My Enemies) album.

Over the weekend, the Scottish musician took to his Twitter page to complain about brown hijacking his beat:

He has every right to be pissed: brown's synthesized beat and Harris' are nearly identical. Though the track was produced by a DJ, it behooves chris brown and his label to make sure the music is free and clear of samples or rights.

Harris plans to take legal action against brown and his record label.

Listen to chris brown's "Yeah 3X":

Now here is Calvin's version (jump ahead to the 0:44 second mark to hear the similarities in the two tracks):

It’s time for Frank Ski to resign.

He’s too emotionally invested in the scandal that is the Bishop Eddie Long/New Birth Missionary Baptist Church lawsuit.

He, Nina Brown, and everyone else are entitled to their opinion, but the “People’s Station” cannot be used for their biased lecturing.

Frank Ski admitted that he was biased in this instance.

Remember someone named Carol Blackman? When controversy courted her too closely, she was gone from the Morning Show.

The Morning Show is bigger than one or two people. Frank has demonstrated today that he is biased, troubled, and worried all for Bishop Eddie Long.

He’s not shown concern for the youths, yet he is a purported “child advocate.” It’s a horrible stance that he’s chosen to take, so publicly and so adamantly.

While the details of the case are made known, and while the legal wheels are turning, Mr. Ski needs to recuse himself.

What about the youth? What about the good of the community versus standing in blind faith for wrong?

Frank Ski has a dog in this fight. As such, he needs to do his “shot calling” from another podium.
Let the People’s Station return to honor.

Here’s a suggestion: Ryan Cameron and _____in Morning!

I assure you that I’m not alone in my thinking and a petition will be in the works.

DISCLAIMER:
The above is the author's personal opinion and is not the opinion or views of Sandra Rose or her advertisers, affiliates and associated companies.

After launching an intense manhunt for a crazed black woman who threw acid in a Vancouver woman's face, police announced the "victim" admitted she made the whole thing up.

"She is extremely upset and very remorseful," said police Cmdr. Marla Schuman. "In many ways, this just got bigger than she expected."

"It seems clear to everyone that we have a person here who is in a fragile mental state," she added.

Bethany Storro's story made worldwide headlines after she reported an apparently random acid attack on Aug. 30. Storro told police a black woman carrying a styrofoam cup approached her as she was getting into her car, and said, “Hey, pretty girl, want something to drink?”

When she declined, Storro said the woman threw a caustic substance from the cup into her face. Storro was treated for 2nd degree burns to her face. Days later she bravely held a press conference in the hospital with her face swathed in bandages, and her parents by her side.

Storro credited her last minute decision to wear sunglasses with saving her eyesight.

But it was that small detail that left investigators baffled: the attack allegedly occurred at 7:40 at night.

Detectives said they began to suspect a hoax after other aspects of the case just didn't add up. For instance, investigators looked at the splash pattern of the acid, and the fact that the acid didn't run down her neck.

The case turned when Storro's story continued to change. On Thursday, Vancouver police served a search warrant on the residence where Storro was staying. They declined to say what they recovered inside the home.

The alleged race of the attacker sparked a barrage of racist comments on newspaper message boards all over the country. Some message boards were shut down due to the violent content of the comments.

Police don't believe Storro's parents knew the attack was a hoax. But they should have informed police that their daughter had a history of mental problems.

"They've been fully cooperative with us today," Schuman said.

Clark County Senior Deputy Prosecutor John Fairgrieve said once their investigation is complete the case will go to the prosecutor. Charges could include making a false or misleading statement to a police officer, a gross misdemeanor that's punishable by a maximum of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Storro's mental health will be taken into consideration, Fairgrieve said.

Yes, men can be gold diggers too as evidenced by Leicester Stovell's lawsuit against NBA star LeBron James. Stovell filed his lawsuit in June alleging he met James' mother, Gloria, in a Washington bar in 1984, when she would have been 15 or 16 years old.

He claims he had sex with the minor child only once, and that she contacted him months later to inform him that she was pregnant. Stovell, who is an attorney, said she told him she would name their child LeBron, a combination of Leicester Bryce -- Stovell's first and middle names.

But on Monday (Aug. 30) Gloria filed a counter suit against Stovell seeking to dismiss his frivolous lawsuit on the grounds that a DNA test proved he is not the father.

Stovell claims LeBron, Gloria and Santa's elves tampered with the DNA test so it would show a false negative. Stovell is demanding millions in compensation for the loss of a relationship with a son that he couldn't care less about even though he -- allegedly -- was informed of the child's existence.

He claims he has been trying for three years to establish paternity, which he hopes would lead to "financial and commercial opportunities."

But in a legal filing on Monday, James' team of attorneys, Frederick Nance and John Burlingame, scoffed at Stovell's demands, saying he is a gold digger (not in those exact words).

Ever since pop icon Michael Jackson died of heart and respiratory failure last year, a number of opportunists, con artists and just plain weirdos have piled out of the woodwork laying a claim to his fortune.

According to TMZ, the latest nut job to surface is a woman named Mocienne Petit Jackson, who claims she was conceived by Michael while he was still a minor. Normally I wouldn't waste any computer pixels on this type of nonsense, but her claims were at least partially legitimized by a California judge who gave the go ahead for a DNA test to confirm the paternity!

I can see why the judge would order a DNA test: < SARCASM>doesn't Mocienne bare a striking resemblance to Michael?< /SARCASM>


Is it just me, or is the lovely Janet Jackson aging rapidly before our very eyes? It seemed like Janet was sipping from the fountain of youth. What happened? Janet was spotted hiding behind her bodyguards while arriving on the set of Tyler Perry's latest film, 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf', in NYC yesterday.


We know in our heart of hearts that music producer The Dream is lying about his failed marriage to pseudo-singer Christina Milian. We know that they concocted their break-up story to help boost the poor sales of his album, Love King, because just last month she was helping to promote his album on Twitter.


Christina was recently spotted out & about with the couple's baby daughter, Violet. That sly smile on Christina's face says it all.
