In an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club today, Waka cleared the air, saying his fiancée Tammy Rivera was the one joining the cast, not him.
But sources told Michelle over at StraightfromtheA reality TV blog a different story. They said Waka signed on the dotted line months ago, but he backed out at the last minute after rumors began circulating that he joined the cast because he thought the set of a reality TV show would be a safer environment for him.

Speaking of Gucci Mane, many of my readers emailed me the link to a video of rapper Gucci Mane punching a female rapper in a nightclub. Judging from the video (which you can view after the break), you can see that the female rapper walked away without a scratch on her face.
We can’t say the same about Rihanna whose bloody and battered face in a police evidence photo made her the poster girl for domestic abuse.
The video is after the break. The actions starts around the 1:55 sec. mark.

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.
