Comments Off on T.I. Birthday Bash Winner gets shopping spree at TAGS Boutique, and her hair done by Derek J!

Friday was a busy day for Ashley Marietta, who will host the Red Carpet for T.I.’s big birthday bash TONIGHT at a private location.

As soon as I notified Ashley that she was the winner, she dashed off to TAGS Boutique‘s 2nd location in Buckhead, where she picked out a special outfit to wear on the red carpet tonight.

The shopping spree was FREE — courtesy of TAGS Boutique co-owners Kandi Burress and Peaches Chin, who took the time to help Ashley select just the right outfit. Ashley, above center, is pictured with Peaches Chin, left, and TAGS II manager Yasmin.

TAGS Boutique II is located at 2140 Peachtree Road in the Brookwood Square next to Frank Ski’s restaurant. You can shop online at TAGSatl.com or at the TAGS Boutique at 4500 West Village Place SE #2003 in Smyrna. Special thanks Peaches and Kandi!

Despite Atlanta’s forecast which called for heavy thunderstorms, the rain didn’t put a damper on the LudaDay Weekend festivities. The biggest draw of the LudaDay Weekend, which ends today, was the celebrity basketball game held Sunday at Morehouse’s Forbes Arena. Pop star Justin Bieber, 17, and his blue team took on the red team of the Ludacris Foundation All-Stars, featuring NBA mega stars Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, John Wall, and singer Teyana Taylor, among others.

Even with all that star power on the court — Bieber and his team of unknowns still managed to eke out a victory in front of the capacity crowd at Morehouse. The final score was a close 134-132. All proceeds from the game will benefit the Ludacris Foundation which helps disadvantaged youth in the metro area. Luda later tweeted that the game raised $10,000!

Yesterday I received these pics in an email from Patrice Horton over at TuffLuv Management who represents NFL player James Hardy. But by the time I received the pics my day was already over.

I broke the story right here on Sandrarose.com that James Hardy and reality TV personality Toya Carter had split up. So Honey magazine immediately reached out to the new bachelor for a fashion spread.

We know that James Hardy is all man so why would he allow himself to look sooo gay in these pictures? There is no reason on God’s green earth why a man should have on this much makeup. I’m just being real.

Sometimes you have to tell the makeup artist to go easy on the brush. My suggestion to ball players who don’t want to look light on their feet in a photo shoot, is to ask for a mirror before the photo shoot begins. If you can’t see your skin through the makeup, ask the makeup artist to do it over with less foundation.

Don’t just take the makeup artist’s word for it. To them, more is always better. You’re a man and there is no reason for a man to look more made up than B. Scott.

By the way, the photographer is Rob Ector who studied under Derek Blanks. How Y’all Doin?!

According to witnesses, music mogul Sean combs brawled in the street with a paparazzi after screaming, “WHAT U SAY ABOUT MY MAMA?!”

OK, I’m just kidding! Sean was actually filming a fight scene in his new movie “Take Me To the Greek” currently lensing in Las Vegas. The scene looks believable because Sean, aka Diddy, has plenty of practice punching out innocent bystanders.

No one on the corner has swagger like Puff. After the fight scene, a calm and collected Diddy strolled off without a scratch on him
