As I told you last month, Tiny and her wedding planners have been going over the details (such as colors for her bridesmaids gowns) for a couple of years now while T.I. made up his mind when he was going to pop the question. Now that he has proposed, the wedding plans have taken on more urgency.
Invites still have not gone out, but the wedding will be soon. As you know, Tiny is very much into numerology so the wedding date is subject to change a few times.
Tiny's BFF monica appeared on The Wendy Williams show last week and gave a bit more details about the wedding.
I realize he's not a celebrity, but Barack Obama's kids, Malia, 11, and Sasha, 8, couldn't contain their boredom at the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House yesterday (April 5) in Washington, DC. About 30,000 people attended the 132-year-old tradition of rolling colored eggs down the South Lawn of the White House.
Sasha reportedly perked up when one of her favorite singers Justin Bieber performed. Also attending the event was actress Reese Witherspoon and her family.
Michael Jackson's oldest adopted daughter Paris Katherine Jackson celebrated her 12th birthday over the weekend. Paris and her brothers Prince and Blanket and their cousins, including Jaafar (in black shirt, the one who tried to stun gun Blanket), celebrated the epic event at a roller skating rink in Glendale, California. Paris bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother who basically sold Paris and her brother Prince to Michael for a couple mil.
Actress Vivica A. Fox and her man Slimm send you their Easter greetings while vacationing in sunny Miami, Florida.
Slimm will be back in the A on Monday (April. 5) to begin preparations for his star-studded birthday festivities all this week leading up to the big birthday bash on Saturday (April. 10) with celebrity guests Vivica A. Fox, Angela and Vanessa Simmons and more!
Check the blog for all the details starting tomorrow.
By the way, Slimm says to tell you that he has a full head of hair under that fitted. So stop hatin'.

How was your Easter? What did you wear? I wore a crisp, all white pants suit and I carried my Bible in this Louis Stewart crocodile Bible bag. It came with a matching white crocodile backpack that I use to carry my laptop in since it's so beautiful outside that I now blog from a coffee shop like Perez Hilton.
If you like the Bible bag (which is big enough to carry your iPad if you got one this weekend), you can custom order yours in any skin (gator, leather, pony, ostrich, etc.) by emailing louisstewartcollection@Gmail.com! The Bible bags are $500 and up.
Anyway, send in photos of your Easter Sunday best to sandra @ sandrarose.com (remove the spaces). If you don't want your family and friends to know you're addicted to Sandrarose.com and need it first thing in the morning like your first cup of Joe. So you can send in pics of your kids instead.
We have to do better than this chick who wore this hairstyle to church on Easter Sunday. What ever happened to dressing our best for the Lord every Sunday, and not just on holidays?
Thanks to loyal reader Waterlilly_76 for the pic!

If you receive Belk's kids catalogue and circulars in the mail and thought you recognized the little cutie in the middle, you were right! She's Chance Combs, 3, the daughter of Atlanta Socialite Sarah Chapman and music mogul Sean Combs.
Chance is also featured on the front page of Belk.com. As you can see she's a natural in front of the camera and she has a very bubbly, outgoing personality like her daddy (she's a little bossy like her daddy too). Chance loves the camera and she's not shy at all (just like her mommy).
This is Chance's first modeling gig (1st audition, first job).
Chance is only 3, but she's tall for her age. Expect to see more of little Chance modeling. She's a future Top Model!

Yesterday marked the 2nd public appearance of rapper T.I. since his release from an Arkanasas prison last December. The occasion was a birthday party for his stepdaughter and his baby mama Tameka "Tiny" Cottle's biological daughter, Zonnique Pullins, who celebrated her 14th birthday at the Luckie Lounge in midtown Atlanta.
About 100 screaming kids turned out to celebrate with Zonnique, who is a member of the popular OMG Girlz singing group. T.I. arrived very early (around 6:30 p.m.) and stayed for two hours. In addition to the kids, there were several grown T.I. fans from Miami in the house who couldn't resist calling out T.I.'s name for pictures.
It seems that someone at the party (I won't say who) alerted the public to the party by tweeting about it on Twitter.com, which didn't sit well with the party's organizer (yes, even DJs can be groupies).
The Princesss/Rock Star themed event was organized by Grand Hustle's General manager Hannah Kang and her partner Laura Giles, both co-owners of Music Business Politics. The party was filmed for an episode of BET's Tiny & Toya Show.
Shouts to Hannah for the personal invite and to celebrity photographer Prince Williams of ATLPICS.net for the beautiful pics!

The party atmosphere was designed by Hannah Kang and Laura Giles of Music Business Politics. Hannah is a longtime friend of the Harris's and she helps run T.I.'s Grand Hustle empire.
Tiny and T.I. with their son King, 5. I'm told that King wants his hair cut short to look like his daddy's. Little King is so smart. He memorized his parents' and his grandmother's phone numbers by heart.
Ignore all rumors that a wedding date for Tiny and T.I. has been set. If her own family members don't know about any wedding date then how can outsiders know? Lol.
Here are the facts: T.I. and Tiny have not picked any wedding date yet. Tiny has spoken with designers about buying a dress or having one made and they have discussed which colors she wants for her bridesmaids.
The fact is Tiny and T.I. do plan on getting married this year, but no specific date has been set. Tameka is heavy into numerology and so the date she picks will be highly significant to her and T.I. The number of the date is very important to her, and even when it's set it is still subject to change.
Speaking of numbers, an inside source informs me that Tiny may be a victim of identity theft and her cell phone number was either hacked or cloned recently. Meaning, someone likely got a phone with the same number as Tiny's and has been using the phone to run up her phone bill. Anyone with a cloned phone can also intercept her phone calls or listen in on them.
Anyway, for that reason, Tiny's phone is cut off which is why she hasn't been updating her twitter page as frequently. The hacker even had a phone mailed to another state in Tiny's name. The telephone company is on top of it, and hopefully the situation will be resolved soon.
Bow Wow is in love. The diminutive rapper celebrated his 23rd birthday last night at Atlanta's Gold Room with his lady love, Angela Simmons, by his side. The two lovebirds attended a Key Club party hosted by Amber Rose. His actual birthday is today (Mar. 9).
The rapper blushed and a broad smile lit up his face as Angela whispered in his ear in the VIP. Later they sat in a dark corner and she laughed at his corny jokes. Love was definitely in the air!
Bow Wow and Angela, aka Rev. Run's daughter, dated briefly in 2006 after he cast her in his video for his song "Shortie Be Mine." But she was unable to tolerate his lack of maturity, so the two parted ways. Angela later began dating professional skateboarder Terry "TK" Kennedy, and after a rather public break up with him, she began seeing Houston producer Skillz.
Friends say last month Angela Tweeted her break up with Skillz and that's when Bow Wow's timeline heated up with tweets trying to woo back the fledgeling fashion entrepreneur. Angela told friends Bow Wow, real name Shad Moss, impressed her with his newfound maturity. And the pricey gifts he bought her also helped persuade her that he was ready.
Multimedia TV personality and entrepreneur La La Vazquez was spotted out & about in Beverly Hills yesterday with wedding planner, Mindy Weiss, left, and a friend. The ladies were "RING" shopping at XIV Karats in Beverly Hills. La La's fiance and baby daddy is NBA star Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets.
As you know, Carmelo and La La have set their wedding date for July 10th. I have yet to receive my wedding invite, but there's still time. Me and La La go way back.
I've never been married so I have a question: Does a man give his fiancee his credit card to go buy herself a ring? Or does the woman buy her own ring nowadays like La La appears to be doing, and like Kandi Burruss did?
In the old days it was the man who bought the ring and his fiancee never saw it until their wedding day. But I guess things have changed.
