Last night’s episode of MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show featured a woman, Keyonnah, who believed she was in an online relationship with former kiddie rapper and BET 106 & Park host Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow.
Keyonnah’s doubts were erased when the impersonator sent her $10,000, which she claims she spent paying off her family’s bills. Catfish‘s dimwitted producers Nev Schulman and Max Joseph pretended not to know how easy it was to confirm the identity of the person imitating the rapper.
In a world where information is literally at our fingertips, Nev and Max couldn’t put 2+2 together until 30 minutes into the show. By then the hapless trio are on a plane to Atlanta to meet “Bow Wow”.
Talk show Diva Tyra Banks rocked Bow Wow’s world on BET’s ’106 & Park’ yesterday. Bow Wow, 26, apparently had a longstanding crush on 39-year-old Tyra going back to his days rapping in the sandbox. The friends shared 2 kisses in front of a cheering teen audience. The 2nd kiss was long and passionate, involving tongue, tonsils and spit. An excited Bow Wow took to his Twitter account to brag about kissing an older woman other than his mother. Also guesting on the show were rapper Nelly and singer/songwriter Keshia Chanté.

Celebs Out & About: Kelly Rowland, T.I., Sean Combs, Shawty Lo, Gucci Mane, Bow Wow, Kim Porter, LisaRaye, Spike Lee
Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland was spotted relaxing on Miami Beach during the Memorial Day weekend. Kelly was wearing a too small aqua string bikini top and giving her breast implants a little air. Kelly recently tweeted that her diet was key in keeping herself fit, saying: “I gave up sugar and fried foods again!!!”. I guess she doesn’t mind silicone in her diet.
Tiki Barber’s soon to be ex-wife Ginny was seen out with her son’s A.J and Chason and her mother today — a week after giving birth to twin girls. Tiki was seen earlier in the day visiting his twin daughters and picking up the boys for a play date in the park.
T.I. was spotted rocking out at Klutch nightclub on Miami Beach last night, as his fiancee Tiny watched lovingly from the side of the stage (far right).
I hear that Bow Wow was catching feelings over what I wrote about his little feud with Faboloso on Twitter.com yesterday. They tell me that the little sand box gangsta took to his Ustream channel yesterday and invited me to an all I can eat weenie roast.
I’ll pass because I don’t eat meat. But Bow Wow’s former fans — and even a few celebrities went to the weenie roast and as I type this, they continue to charbroil his nuts on Twitter.com. So I decided to cut & paste the highlights over here on my blog since I’m too old to get in on the fun:
Rapper Fabolous tweeted: “I heard Bow Wow ties his shoes standing up”
NY DJ Ed Lover tweeted: “I heard bow wow sits on a phone book to drive!”
and my personal favorites:
“I heard Bow Wow can walk under the Red Rope at the club without hitting his head!”
“I heard Bow Wow wears floaties in the bath tub”
“I heard Bow Wow still get breast fed by Jermaine Dupree”
CLICK to join in on the fun!
If you’ve ben on Twitter.com today then you know that rapper Bow Wow is a trending topic. Why? Because fellow rapper Fabolous is holding a funeral for him on the social micro-blogging network.
It seems Faboloso got tired of Bow Wow taking shots at him on Twitter and now he’s firing back. The funeral program contains a blurry image of Bow Wow expertly servicing another male (allegedly, Soulja Boy). I don’t know if if it’s Photoshopped or not. It’s hard to tell.
But doesn’t Bow Wow get tired of being roasted like a weenie so frequently? Maybe he should cancel his Twitter account, get off the Internet and get a career.
Is Carmelo Anthony a rapper now? Last night As the America’s Most Wanted Tour stopped in Denver, Co. Young Jeezy brought out NBA Superstar Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets, who performed during Jeezy’s set. No word on whether Melo is good enough to get signed. But given the current sorry state of Hip Hop, it probably wouldn’t hurt to sign the NBA forward to a deal.
One word of advice to Melo and other wannabe rappers: don’t be idiots like Bow Wow and Omarion and sign to an active artist’s label. That artist is only looking out for #1 and you will never be their top priority!
Just ask Omarion, who found himself without a label home when Lil Wayne dropped him in order to make room on the roster for Bow Wow, who will be kicked to the curb to make room for some other rapper in the near future.
Lil Wayne is only looking to fill his roster with “name” artists to attract investors to his other business ventures, just like Sean Combs does with his “name” artists on his lame Bad Boy Records. If a record does get put out you can be sure it will flop because there won’t be any marketing push behind it.
Stop letting these morons use you, kids!
