    Babyface and Oprah

    If you are a Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds fan, you may recall the gossip and innuendoes swirling around the unlikely marriage between the singer/songwriter and Tracey Edmonds, a video model who set Babyface's loins aflame when they met on the set of his music video "Whip Appeal".

    Industry insiders whispered that Tracey was nothing but a gold digger who was only out for Babyface's money. But Tracey soon put the gossip to rest when she achieved success as an award-winning film producer.

    The couple quickly became parents to sons Brandon and Dylan. But their marriage soon crumbled and Tracey filed for divorce in 2005.

    Now, 23 years after their fateful meeting, Babyface, 54, admits he was never really in love with Tracey, 46.

    Yesterday the Internet was buzzing about a new scandal involving "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida.

    According to Angela Stanton, a former friend of Phaedra's, the local attorney once ran a profitable car theft ring. I should pause here to inform you that Stanton has written a book detailing Phaedra's alleged involvement in the car theft ring.

    The book is titled Lies of a Real House Wife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil. In the book, and in an exclusive interview with VIBE, Stanton discusses her relationship with Phaedra, Apollo, and Apollos's brother Everett.

    All 4 were involved in the prolific car theft ring, according to Stanton. The operation -- led by Phaedra -- stole expensive luxury vehicles by simply driving them off car lots at night. They later trading the vehicles for cars of lesser value which they then sold for cash.

    Last night, up-and-coming singer K. Michelle went on a Twitter rant calling out celebrity blogger Necole bitchie for being a bitter wannabe recording artist who blackballs successful studio artists such as herself.

    I thought K. Michelle's rants against NB were interesting considering that I've heard rumors about Necole (allegedly) accepting favors and perks from record labels to write favorable posts about lame singers, such as Trey Songz.

    Remember I told you last year that NB enlisted the aid of industry exec Michael Kyser to groom her into a recording artist? Many of you scoffed at me for saying NB took up blogging to better position herself to get a record deal.

    Well, here's what K. Michelle tweeted about that:

    Lets be real @necolebitchie u are one big head hatin ass blogger. U see me fightin 4these girls but u continue 2block my material cuz u ride dicks. U have a real problem with me 4 no reason. Its not my fault u didnt get a record deal. #stupidbitch @necolebitchie I love my job but hollywood people like u R sad. All I wanna do is help women do better. U R a blogger not a artist. Remember Im not kissing yo ass for a post on ur blog. Fuck u take this and sit on it. Keep black ballin me,ima keep singing. Three things I know how 2do 1.sing 2.be honest 3.and fight 4what I believe in. Good night

    If you recall, I also wrote a blurb about NB hastily packing her bags and moving to Miami 2 years ago after a breakup with a certain female singer:

    Necole was reportedly despondent over her breakup with a not so well-known female singer who was spending a lot of time in Atlanta. So Necole was happy to move to Miami to put some distance between herself and the chick.

    Now, I have no idea if the singer was K. Michelle or not. So please don't quote me on that.

    Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Kandi, is featured on the Nov. 2010 cover of Sister 2 Sister magazine.

    Inside the magazine, Kandi talks about her life after her fiance's death, her current relationship with NFL player Willis McGahee, and her uncertainty about returning to the hit show

    New album, Kandi Koated, coming soon!!!

    Pregnant reality TV personality Chandra Davis, aka London Charles, aka Deelishis (Flavor of Love) covers the current issue of Sister2Sister magazine.

    Deelishis is around 10 months pregnant with a girl, and in the issue she talks about how she and her husband Orlando came up with the name for their baby, Lexington Brielle.

    They look so happy together (despite the rampant down low rumors) but we wonder if all that hydrogel in her butt is healthy for the baby?

    OK! magazine posted exclusive pics of Kimora and Djimon Hounsou's baby son, Kenzo Lee, who was born in May. Thank God their son doesn't take after either one of them!

    You can see the baby got his Mandingo features from his African daddy. Doesn't Kenzo look like the baby that Kunta Kinte hoisted into the air on "Roots" and said, "Behold, the Only Thing Greater Than Yourself!" As a matter of fact, that baby grew up to be one of the members of the singing group The Boys, whose biggest hit was "Dial My Heart".

    According to a loyal reader, who asked to remain anonymous, this scantily clad slut-for-hire is supposedly celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie.

    I don't believe it for one minute. This skank does not look a bit like Necole to me. First off, the chick in these images is too light skinded to be Necole, and two: As soon as I saw these pics I called up struggling R&B singer Trey Songz on the phone and he confirmed that NB doesn't have stretch marks on her buttocks.

    This chick looks more like a broke down Supahead before all the butt injections and implants and stuff.

    Some people are such haters, I tell you. Well, I'm only posting these images to show you children how deep people will dig to find dirt on anybody -- even a celebrity blogger (although this isn't Necole).

    I never would have guessed that Usher's "other woman" was older than he was. She looks so young to me. The truth is, she's older than Usher's wife Tameka who is 40 (or 41 depending on who you ask).

    I should have known she was older since Ush is only into older women. You know, he still has those Oedipus Complex issues that he hasn't fully worked through yet.

    From Egypt:

    According to sources the woman in question is a 42 year old Def Jam executive named Grace Miguel who is married to video production company owner, Lou Miguel of Box Fresh Films. Usher’s label is Arista, not Def Jam. So was he creeping on Tameka or planning to bounce from his label??? Insiders say that they are officially over and that Usher plans to file for separation in the coming days.

    Meanwhile, Usher's wife is still on Twitter.com denying the separation rumors even though it's quite obvious. When anyone challenges her on Twitter she accuses them of trying to steal her "followers." Someone should explain to Tameka that her "followers" are only wasting their time following her because they think she's still with Usher.

    Nashe Scott, who manages Ludacris' Straits restaurant, responded to Kim Morgan's complaints in yesterday's 'Put 'Em On Blast' post. (Read the complaint here) Nashe now has Kim's contact info so maybe they can work something out.

    Thanks to Nashe for reaching out!

    The person who planned the party wanted to create an affordable menu option for all guests. So she chose our standard "family style" menu which involves sharing each dish. The group was served the first and second courses with no incident. However, once the first main course dishes arrived and were eaten the guest began to complain because they wanted more. At that point a member of the party began to curse, yell and disrepect the servers. Our manager spoke with the person who planned the party and the father of the guest of honor. Following is an except from our January 23rd incident report:

    We discounted the food and the guest of honor's father requested to pay the bill. They acknowledged that there must have been a misunderstanding about the menu. We both agreed that when people communicate, anything can be worked out. It's when people become out of control that nothing gets resolved. The sister of the guest of honor even stated that she planned to come back. Food and service have been the top priorities since the day we opened the doors. We have hosted events for most of Atlanta's A-list. The Real Atlanta Housewives, Monica, Eric Benet, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas of TLC, Russell Simmons, Bob Johnson, and the list goes on...if your wondering the reason why, it's because at Straits we strive for each guest to have an amazing dining experience.
