Four months after giving birth to a premature baby girl, local Atlanta Socialite Monyetta Shaw is expecting again.

This will be the second child for Shaw and R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, who are proud parents of Madilyn Grace Smith. Ne-Yo is hoping for a boy this time, according to a source close to Ne-Yo's camp.

You may recall that Ne-Yo, real name Shaffer Chimere Smith, Jr., was duped into believing a boy born in 2005 was his. But subsequent tests revealed the child was not his.

In an August 2010 interview with British tabloid The Sun, Ne-Yo said of Monyetta, "I have a friend. Not a girlfriend. She's carrying my child, but knows I can't commit. She doesn't mind other women."

As for Monyetta, she is living the high life after opening a high end clothing boutique in Buckhead last year with Ne-Yo's money. The boutique has yet to turn a profit. But Monyetta can often be seen steering her Maybach drop top around the Buckhead area with a baby car seat in the back. The luxury automobile has room for 5 additional baby car seats, and sources tell me that Monyetta isn't done dropping babies for Chimere.

By now you've all heard the story about the fisticuffs that took place between comedian Jamie Foxx and his longtime manager Breyon Prescott at a Belvedere Red party earlier this month.

According to an industry insider, who is close to both Jay Z and Jamie Foxx's camps, Jigga came to the rescue of his friend by unofficially blacklisting Prescott at the 2011 Grammy's.

My source tells me that Jay Z gave the order to his people to take Prescott's name off of his Grammy party lists -- and others in the industry followed suit.

Jay Z threw a Roc Nation brunch on the Saturday after the fight, according to my source who attended the brunch. He said when Jay saw that Prescott's name was on the list, he reportedly said, "we don't need people up here who fights their artists. It's not a good look."

Ironically, it was a pre-Grammy fight in 2009 that led to Jay Z imposing a similar blacklist on Chris Brown that nearly destroyed the singer's career after he assaulted his then-girlfriend, and Jay Z protege, Rihanna.

According to the insider, Foxx and Prescott fell out long before the ruckus took place at Club Avalon in Hollywood on Feb. 10. The two men had been friends and business partners since 1994 when Foxx released his first album entitled Peep This.

But in recent years, Jamie bristled at rumors that Breyon was allegedly using his name to make money under the table. "He was taking kickbacks, side deals, alla dat - and now Jamie doesn't want nothing to do with him," said my source in a phone call yesterday.

It seems that Prescott was too "attached" to Foxx -- but not in the way that other blogs have claimed. "He was jealous because Jamie had a better table than he did," said my informant.

Breyon's habit of using Foxx's name to score sexual services from industry groupies also troubled Foxx. The source said Prescott was drunk when they got to fighting at Avalon after Foxx had severed all contact with him.

"When Jamie got Breyon in a headlock, Breyon bit Jamie's finger. Jamie had to get stitches in that finger," said the insider, who went on to say that Foxx is huddling with his attorneys to find a way to get Jamie out of his rock solid contract with Prescott. "I think he's got 3 more albums in that contract with Breyon," the source said.

Yesterday I learned exclusively that rapper Shawty Lo got back together with his baby mama, Ecreia Perez, who, if you recall, ran afoul of the law last October when she was caught carrying a loaded handgun into an Atlanta courthouse.

According to my source, Shawty Lo, 35, dumped Ecreia, 28, last year after he learned that she was cheating on him with a d-boy over on Boulevard. In fact, Ecreia was attending her lover's court date last June when she was arrested for carrying that loaded pistol and a stun gun disguised as a cigarette lighter in his purse.

You may also recall that before he dumped Ecreia, Shawty proposed to her after 10 years and one daughter together. But all of that went out the window once his boys got wind of Ecreia's extracurricular activities.

I'm told that Shawyty, real name Carlos Walker, is a bit sensitive and he couldn't take the constant teasing from his crew about his fiancee. So he went back to local rapper Jai Jai, whom he met when she was only 16.

“Something happened that I found out," said Carlos in an interview with MTV. "Me, being a man, you just can’t deal with certain stuff, put up with certain stuff. So, you know, it’s better for us to separate. I can’t talk about it. That my daughter’s mother. I got much respect for her. … (But) yeah, I’m single right now.”

My source tells me that Carlos and Ecreia are making beautiful music together in the studio where Shawty is working on his next album. Despite rumors of Shawty's rampant cheating, they are back together for the children's sake. Carlos has 9 other kids from previous relationships.

Are you sure they are getting married. Why is Hoopz being spotted all over the place with him. Monique show & here what's really good?
--mswomack


So everyone is talking about T.I.'s apparent renewed interest in the reality TV skank star Hoopz since he got out of prison. It seems that T.I. and Hoopz have been seen together (even when he's with Tiny). Such as her appearance in the front row at the Mo'Nique show where T.I. was a guest. And last week, Hoopz was at Hush nightclub where T.I. performed.

You already know how T.I. and Tiny get down. So this should come as no surprise to any of you. I've said this repeatedly on my blog: that a powerful man is always going to have his jump off on the side. But Tiny will always be T.I.'s main lady and his side pieces know that. T.I. has already said that he's not leaving Tiny. The two are expected to tie the knot at a private ceremony later this month. But that doesn't mean that there won't be other women -- and Tiny knows that.

One of celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie's BFF's was busted this morning for grand theft. Now Necole is going into damage control mode to distance herself from her friend.

Apparently, Juanita Crimiel, 26, who passed herself off as a successful celebrity cook named Chef Juanita, befriended Necole who then introduced her to all of her industry friends.

Crimiel, as Chef Juanita, wove an intricate web of lies and deceit in order to scam Necole's industry contacts out of $20,095.21!

One of the celebrity victims who fell for the so-called "Chef" Juanita's lies was BET 106 & Park's co-host Rocsi.

Crimiel's latest caper involved shaving her head bald and pretending to be a cancer patient. Two weeks ago, she used a bogus email account to email me claiming "Chef Juanita" was dying of cancer. Two days later, I received another email from Juanita informing me that "Chef Juanita" was dead.

It looks like the bad economy has claimed yet another casualty. According to industry insiders, TAGS Boutique, owned by Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss and her business partner Hortense Chin, will be closing its doors for good soon.

Friends say sales of affordable clothing and accessories at TAGS aren't brisk enough to keep the doors open. This, despite the fact that Kandi Burrus, who is listed as the CEO on the business license, is supposedly the most popular cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It seems Kandi's popularity isn't translating to sales at the cash register in her shop or in the record stores. It probably wouldn't matter even if her fans wanted to support her. Customers complain that TAGS is rarely open during business hours and phone calls to the boutique routinely go unanswered.

Is this any way to run a business?

One frustrated customer even took to her Twitter account to inquire what was going on:

TAGS, which opened late last year, is located at 4500 West Village Place in Smyrna, Georgia. When I spoke by phone to Kandi Burrus a week before the Grand Opening, she didn't know the phone number or the address to the shop so I could post the info for my readers.

What business woman doesn't know the phone number and address to her own business? Mind you, TAGS was already open for business a month before the Grand Opening.

In fact, Kandi had to call her business partner to get the phone number and address to the store because the info wasn't stored in her cell phone. Right then I had my suspicions that the business wouldn't do well.

I also hear through the grapevine that Kandi's business partner isn't too thrilled with Kandi who spends more time on the social networking site Twitter.com promoting her Internet video stream talk show than she does promoting the shop.

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).

MORE pics after the break!

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.
