Atlanta's glitterati are abuzz over the star-studded Tyler Perry Studio launch in Atlanta this weekend. Many of the VIPs who got dressed up thinking they would get all access were disappointed to learn they weren't that important.

Ryan Cameron, host of Majic 107.5/97.5 radio in Atlanta, posed above with singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter at the event.

The star-studded party was also attended by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, Will Smith and Maxine Waters.

Several people who I spoke to said they declined to attend the event once they learned of the different levels of VIP access, separate VIP rooms, secret side door access, red carpet-only access, etc.

In other words, everyone is not equal in Tyler Perry's world.

One star who got elite VIP status and didn't bother walking the red carpet with the commoners was Beyonce, who snuck in through a side door with her aging rapper husband, JAY-Z.

The inside joke was Beyonce ate like a bird at the gala dinner because she's embarrassed by her FUPA (acronym for fat upper crotch Area).

Sharp-eyed members of Beyonce's BeyHive noted her FUPA was Photoshopped out of her Instagram photos taken at the gala.

Another middle aged celebrity who isn't self-conscious about her FUPA is actress Halle Berry, who dressed in all black.

Beyonce admitted she cried at the launch of Perry's new movie studio, as she was overwhelmed by its significance for black entertainers.

The day after the bash, Beyonce revealed she cried at the event.

"Happy Sunday. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the opening of his studios," The 39-year-old Lion King star wrote on Instagram. "I could feel our ancestors' presence. Surrounded by my heroes, I watched Denzel (Washington), Queen Oprah, Spike (Lee), Whoopi (Goldberg), Sir (Sidney) Poitier, Will, Halle , Dame Cicely (Tyson) and our angels John Singleton and Diahann Carroll honored.

"The Armand de Brignac (champagne) crashed against each soundstage as fireworks lit up the sky. Generations of blood, sweat and tears, success, excellence and brilliance.

"It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying. Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger."

Perry's studio has twelve soundstages, each named after an iconic Black actor, and is one of the biggest studios in the U.S.

Perry named one of the soundstages after pioneering actress Diahann Carroll, who recently passed away after a battle with cancer.

None of the soundstages was named after Beyonce.

Viola Davis, Samuel L. Jackson, Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, Michael Ealy, Jill Scott, Ludacris, T.I., Usher, Sean Combs, and Ava DuVernay also attended the gala event.

Comedian Faizon Love and TV personality Towanda Braxton sat in for Majic 107.5/97.5 radio host Ryan Cameron who is on vacation. Also making an appearance on Thursday's Ryan Cameron Uncensored show were Towanda's current boyfriend Sean Hall and special guest - "President Of R&B" Johnny Gill.

During the celebrity-driven Ryan Report, Faizon recalled seeing Towanda's famous sister, Toni Braxton, out & about with the late rapper, Eric "Eazy-E" Wright.

We all know Eazy-E got around, but we didn't know Toni was one of his sexual conquests.

Towanda immediately questioned Faizon's recollections, but the portly comedian stood firm. Johnny, who knows the Braxton family well, couldn't confirm Faizon's report and he couldn't stop laughing.

Faizon recalled seeing Toni hopping out of a brand new BMW that Eazy E owned, down to the paint color. There were skeptical looks all around the room, especially from her sister, Towanda, who quickly got Toni on the phone.

Toni is engaged to Cash Money Records founder, Bryan "Baby" Williams, who still has money problems that she may or may not be helping him to resolve.

Listen to the audio below to find out if Toni Braxton ever dated Eazy E or comedian Chris Tucker!

Malik Yoba says he is planning to file lawsuits against bloggers and "media outlets" that ran the teen transgender prostitute story.

In an interview with Ryan Cameron on Majic 107.5 on Thursday, Sept. 5, Yoba lashed out at bloggers who ran the trans prostitute's story "without proof".

In a Facebook post titled "Surviving Malik Yoba: We had sex, when I was just a teen," Mariah Lopez Ebony said Yoba paid for sexual favors when Ebony was 13 and 16 years old.

But Yoba, 55, told Ryan he didn't even know who Ebony was.

Still, he said he was "considering" suing bloggers who ran the story - not the person who put the story out there. He claimed the scandal has already cost him money and bookings.

Yoba defended his earlier statement that he was attracted to male to female transgenders. He also dismissed critics who say he is gay or homosexual.

Yoba insisted he is not homosexual. He admitted he was molested when he was a boy. Childhood molestation is a common link among homosexuals.

He said heterosexuals gave birth to transgenders, which is why he wants heterosexuals to participate in a transgender workshop he's hosting at the National Trans Visibility March in Washington, D.C. later this month.

"I love all women," he said, adding that no one has slept with more women than he has.

He said he made the announcement because too many people who look like him are dying in the streets.

He said he realized he was attracted to lady boys when he was a teenager.

He also suggested his baby mama was untruthful when she said he didn't prepare her or their 2 children for his shocking revelation.

He denied her claim that he in a romantic relationship with transgender activist Carmen Carrera.

OK I'm kidding about the Ryan Cameron Morning Show, lol. Actually Ryan, who hosts the popular Ryan Cameron Show in the drive time slot on WVEE in Atlanta, is subbing all this week for the Kang, Frank Ski, who along with Wanda Smith and Miss Sophia, helms the popular Frank & Wanda Morning Show.

Party planner Anthony, who also goes by the names Tony Shorter and Tyson, called in to the show this morning to speak with Ryan to clear the air about his much-publicized bitch fight with "fashion designer" Sheree Whitfield from last night's premiere of RHOA.

In an email to Sandrarose.com yesterday, Anthony stated that the producers of the show hired him -- not Sheree -- to coordinate her so-called "Divorce party" into his Atlanta Music Festival back in March. Obviously Anthony was set up to fail from the very beginning.

Jay Z called into the Ryan Cameron Show on WVEE to clear up rumors surrounding the cancellation of his rained out concert at Chastain Park Amphitheater last night. Jigga confirmed he would return in the Fall to do a show somewhere in Atlanta, but no date was given. That pretty much means the Chastain show won't be rescheduled as previously reported, so go get your money back. A couple of loyal readers emailed me to say they received refunds by calling Ticketmaster. But if you bought your tickets at Chastain Park, you're out of luck.

Oh, and Jay Z also told Ryan exclusively that he signed a book deal. So listen for the scoop on that.
