Thanks to Natina Reed's manager Conley Armstrong of Strong Arms Entertainment, who sent us this most recent photo of Natina, which is a far cry from her now infamous mug shot. Natina is getting her life back on track. She's busy working on her new album and she just landed a big movie role. So good for her!

You can reach out to Natina on her Twitter page TheRealNatina.

Yesterday, I wrote a post about the former Blaque singer being the victim of a malicious attack on another blog. As you know, Reed, 29, was arrested in Decatur, GA (a suburb of Atlanta) back on April 13 and charged with having an open container of alcohol in her car and disorderly conduct.

According to her manager, Conley Armstrong, she was arrested close to midnight and released a few hours later, which made it seem as if she was in jail for a whole day.

Nevertheless, a gossip blog decided her charges weren't scandalous enough and took it upon themselves to falsify a police report to make it appear as though Reed had been arrested on cocaine and prostitution charges. They also altered the amount of her bond and the status of her charges to appear as though she was still in jail.

And lastly, they misrepresented the location of Reed's arrest as Gwinnett County rather than DeKalb County to prevent the other blogs from finding her original arrest report online.

Even though we as bloggers are not infallible, there is a line that most of us will not cross. Tampering with official court documents and public records is illegal, and most of us have better common sense than to put our livelihoods at risk for a few blog hits.

The bottom line is artists are humans too. They all have personal issues like we do, and sometimes those personal issues are played out in a very public manner. Blogs cross the line when they twist the truth and fabricate stories in exchange for money and hits.

I can assure my readers that we take great pride in our integrity and credibility and we will never cross that line.

  • FloridaChick813

    I think she's stunning!!!!!!!!!!

  • KaraZ

    She cleans up nicely, but she should also cover up, I think I see some nipple there...

    I hope she sues them momofukus

  • hisaddiction

    OK Sandra. Never cross the line. (WINK WINK):)

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Just came from the blog and now that story is nowhere to be found. Hmmm!

  • Ebony


  • Anna

    Are professional pics so 1960's? Why would her manager release a bathroom in the mirror pic?

  • Ebony

    I blame Beyonce for this :coffee:

  • KeyshDiiva

    But that still doesnt explain why she was looking like that when arrested..i dont care what you say Sandra..she look like she on something

  • SangriaSugar

    She is very pretty!!!

    But really why would her manager have this pic on hand to send out as her most recent pic?? What happened to official pictures??

  • Choco

    I'm not convinced and yes we all have problems some of outgrow them some of us don't!

  • pinksghetti

    She looks pretty again!

    Maybe her role in the movie is a crackhead or homeless person and she was just getting into character the way Halle Berry did for "Jungle Fever" *shrugs*

    I blame Beyonce for this :coffee:

    And her lacefront too :coffee:

  • cheeks8683

    Yeah her breast are about to pop out and she look like she is fresh from surgey or botox....Scrolling up again she looks like a hispanic woman, like one of katt stacks homegirls...see's still pretty tho...

  • Candi Apple

    What a far cry from that mug shot. Tons of make-up, contacts, Perm, Weave and titi shots. So this is what celebrity is now huh. Doesn't take much

    I went into a 99cent store a few weeks ago and was shocked they had color contacts for 10 bucks.

  • AprilRain

    Be nice Cheeks :)

    @Sandra- yes, she does clean up well!

  • cheeks8683

    @ April...I said she is pretty...just processed pretty, what ever happened to natural glow? Errbody looks alike now.

    @ candi...see im scared of cheap contacts, makes me think they will cause an infection in my eye. I thought color contacts where out.

  • babygirlcaramel

    Is wondering why Sandra is takin up so much for her? Granted her crime wasn't as major as some other's have been (_._.) but as I recall she makes it a point when a rapper gets arrested to say "another dumb rapper gets arrested" So why the favortism? #justsayin! :shrugs:

  • eastpointvet

    looks nice

  • Al-Ameera

    Awwwwww @ Sandra. And to think some people actually thought SR didn't have a heart :rofl:

  • QuettaV

    Looking at both pics... the mug shot and the whenever taken shot... it seems like it may 2 different people or maybe make-up did wonders for her.... :shrug: imo!!!!

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Dem tig Ol bitties lookin right! Don't care about her situation and all that other chit...

  • chase


  • OutsidetheBox

    Thats the Natina I know! She looks good!

    *arguing with a co-worker about whether thats a weave*

    I say no. She is YT and about to

    S/N: One thing I hate about Chris Rock and that the YTs think all Black women wear a weave...and if you dont, you are bald. Ignorance is bliss huh.

  • Candi Apple

    @cheeks8683 I thought the were out of style too. That is until I saw the picture of this chick. She probably has differernt colors.

    Back in the day contact were as expensive as cell phone but at least cheap phones don't cause harm. You phone cuts off if you have no minutes but loosing an eye is another story. She needs to stop.

  • KaraZ

    Man go away! how did i know a peeking nipple would lure you out?

    As far as Sandra sticking up for Natina, I don't think its favoritism when she's clearing the air, those b(ish)gossip folks straight up LIED on her, with intent to damage her reputation. As far as dumb rappers getting arrested, she doesn't have to lie on them, they do get arrested for dumb ish.

  • AprilRain

    @OTB- Hubby hates Chris cuz of that movie lol, (His Beyonce has real hair and always will) and no one can tell him different!

  • ohso

    *grumbles as rant begins*
    Candi I swear we are >>>>>>here<<<<<. A pet peeve of mine is when guys talk about how FOINE these industry chicks be and here is the perfect example! Yesterday without all the enhancements she looke a H.A.M. Now today here is a made up to the tee picture and she looks pretty. So what does that say??? I hope nuccas realize that the mug shot is what they are waking up to...not the picture above. So stop acting like ordinary chicks are inferior to them as far as looks go. i look ten times better then her (in my opinion) if we taking it from a non-made up standpoint.

    *relaxes as the rant has ceased to exist*

  • KaraZ

    @OTB, tell that pink toe to shut the fluck up and go eat a mayonnaise sandwich. White women wear weave, in fact most of the white women I know always have some extensions in their fugging hair and I'm not talking about the misguided ones who think they're black either, Buckhead Betties with head fulla seabisuit!

    It looks like she pressed out her hair.

    But that pic from her mugshot could be old, I went researching on that database last night, she had the same picture on an arrest report from a few years ago too.

  • AprilRain

    @cheeks-Is that you in that pic? You look (natural pretty w/ a glow!) There is hope for the rest of us!

  • KaraZ

    @ohso, it's not fair to take a mugshot as a regular day for anyone. I don't think I've ever seen one single mugshot where anyone looks good, especially not when they're taken for alcohol related offenses. Few people are flawless without proper grooming.

  • cheeks8683

    @ candi :rofl: and if u get your phone cut off u can get a pay as u go from wally world or a cricket phone...No sir I'll rock my natural dark browns thankuverymuch!


    ummmm MKM???? FLO??????

  • Candi Apple

    That mug shot is her true identity. No changing that. The superman Identity it the picture above. This is her stepping out of the phone booth.

  • OutsidetheBox

    :rofl: @kara!!!!!!

    Wave to her y'all...she reads!!!! LMAO!!!

    She said, "well she didnt have to get nasty."

    :rofl: :rofl:

  • OutsidetheBox

    LMAO! My laffter has bought over another co-worker...YT lady, older... (just asked me whats YT) and said it aloud and realized ... :rofl:

    anyway...she says, "ooohhh I wear a weave.."



  • cheeks8683

    @ April, why yes ma'am that is me in the pic. Thanks :-). I don't believe in that plastic surgery ish. Perhaps a breast lift when I get older perhaps but that's all. No messing with the face. I have chubby cheeks and I have no plans on having them pulled back or sucked in...besides it gives me a babyface!

    *waving* don't talk out the side of your mouth no more >:( but you see my point *hi Ken Paves hair wearing colleague*

  • Janay

    She's Very Pretty And i LOVE me some blaque

  • ohso

    @Kara: I feel u on proper grooming. But i consider proper grooming to be everyday things you do to make sure you are presentable. I.E. shower, combed hair, deodorant, lotion, clean ironed clothes. I do not consider foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara and/or false eyelashes, blush, lipstick and/or lipgloss, colored contacts..etc etc to be a part of proper grooming. For me that would be extreme special occasion stuff (and even then i would skip most of the makeup). But thats just me :shrug:


  • Candi Apple

    @brown Congrats on the new promotion.

    @Outside LOL

  • Candi Apple

    @ohso agreed... Imagine doing that work everyday. I would never want to leave the house. Its like a job. However I do need to learn the art of putting on make-up.

  • spongebobfan

    lmao so she went from jail, to 'landing a part in movie' in 24 hours? um ok?

  • htown-chick

    glad she waxed that mustache!and what "big" movie could she possibly have landed with those acting skills?she sucked ASS n bring it on

  • Candi Apple

    @spngebobfan :rofl: :rofl:

    Does seem like a far cry from :snort: the night before.

  • omina-homina

    ***TEAM NATINA*** here. I'm not sure what to believe, but all I know is that Blaque was/is a great group with great music/lyrics. Natina definitely is a great talent and I hope she gets back on the scene and does it big!!!

    Do yo thang booo!

    But that still doesnt explain why she was looking like that when arrested..i dont care what you say Sandra..she look like she on something
    Exactly! At no time should anyone go out the door with their head looking like that! It just isn't normal :nono:

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    I mean I could tell she was still cute yesterday. Some people just have natural beauty. Yes, she was looking rough with them slave braids but she was still cute.

    I do believe she has a drinking problem though. Alcoholism does run in her family and I'm sure dealing with Kurupt didnt do anything to improve that.

    Go Natty Go!!!

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    Oh yeah, I do believe she had on a wig and they made her take it off for the mug shot. Her ass aint that drunk to be hanging outside like that...

  • KaraZ

    @ohso I don't know, she's a pretty girl even without this full face of makeup, but I swear they must rough house everyone before they take a mug shot, because like over 90% of mugshots people look rough as hayle... I should know I spent a bit of time looking up people I know to see if they've ever been arrested.

    Do you know those records go back over 20 years. Yah, I learned some things about some folks who think their shyt don't stank with their forgery charges azzes.

  • Sweet-D

    Besides the near nip slip, she looks good. Someone know they could have taken a better quality of picture though. That's a foul in my book.

  • 2thick4u

    Damn I been gone for a day and all hell then broke loose!!!

    What website was this...I think I know but I might be surprised!! They are such idiots to fabricate a story!! I hope she sues there asses!!

    Ms. Reed, is still cute but she looks like an around the way girl in this photo. Why does her manager has these picture...did she send it to him?!! I am going to need clarification for this shot!!
