Tamika Fuller

Tamika Fuller, rapper Ludacris' baby mama, expressed her undying Love and devotion to her and Luda's infant daughter, Cai Bella Bridges, on Instagram.com 2 weeks ago.

"You are the first face I see every morning and it is because of you every day is an AMAZING day! Im so in awe at how advanced you are at this young age! Thank you for choosing me to be your mommy and I promise I will be the best mommy EVER. Love"

But on Saturday night, instead of staying home with her baby, Fuller (pictured right) was courtside at an Atlanta Hawks game behaving like a typical groupie. Maybe Fuller was at the game scouting potential NBA sperm donors for baby #2?

I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself: stay off of social networking sites if you're a celebrity with no impulse control (or common sense).

Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson is having a bad week. First, she butchered the National Anthem by forgetting the words during halftime of the Lakers/Hawks game on Wednesday. Then last night, on her Twitter.com account, Keri insulted her own mother in response to a tweet from a moron that she should have ignored.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the social networking site Twitter.com, Keri reposted (retweeted) a tweet from an idiot, and then she added her own words to the tweet, which are preceded by the arrow.

I don't know if Keri and her mom get along, but she didn't have to go there. Would you call your own mother a b*tch knowing that the world is watching? A better question would be, why do celebrities feel the need to lower themselves to the standards of a moron's by responding to ignorance with ignorance?
