What’s up y’all?! Here is the dirt…
Ciara is gracing the cover of next week’s Jet Magazine. I would say “looking fabulous as usual” but then I would be lying. I am not feeling the two toned hair. I know y’all think I “hate” on Ciara…but I don’t. I just call it like I see it. Y’all know that hair is not a good look. Nuff said…
Side Bar-If you haven’t already, make sure to grab your copy of Ciara’s new CD, “Fantasy Ride.” You have to respect the sista’z hustle. She is working hard and paying dues. We are wishing you much success on this new CD Cici.
Old school rapper Willie D done caught a case! The founder of legendary rap group The Geto Boys was arrested by the feds for running a scam involving the selling of iPhones…or not. According to my sources Willie was on eBay selling iPhones that did not exist. He would take the orders, have the funds deposited into his bank account and then never deliver the phones. Then when folks started complaining about not getting the products they purchased, WILLIE would lie and say that the phones were lost in the mail and could not refund their money. THEN his broke, no talent havin’, washed up, coniving, low life self had the NERVE to cease all communications with the complaining customers. Ain’t that some nerve??! He faces 20 years in jail and a $250K fine.
Russell Simmons was hospitalized yesterday for a swollen hand. No one seems to know the cause, but it was serious enough for the Mt. Sinai Hospital to keep him overnight for observation. Let’s keep Uncle Russell in our prayers. Russ, we hope you have a speedy recovery! I’ll keep y’all posted on his condition as I receive more info.
Wanda Sykes and her wife had TWINS y’all! Personally I didn’t know it was possible but it is the new millennium. The ladies welcomed Olivia Lou and Lucas Claude. Now y’all know Wanda ain’t have NUFFIN’ to do with naming them babies. Claude and Lou??!! Come on now…y’all know them names ain’t right. I guess it’s better than “Apple” and “Moxy.” Nuff said…
Singer Pink done let go of her “girlfriend” ambitions and hooked back up with her hubby, Carey Hart…for the time being anyway. Pink will be on the Ellen DeGeneres show today so be sure to check her out.
Young Jock is suing Bad Boy and Diddy for messin’ wit’ his loot! According to my sources, Joc and his legal team have issues with unpaid royalties, contracts AND unpaid advances. Now I ain’t no rocket scientist, but if Bad Boy can’t pay you no royalties, how in the HECK can they afford to pay you any “advance” money?! For real Joc…didn’t you get the memo?? Ain’t nobody that has ever stayed with Bad Boy Records been a success. Ma$e, 112, Tanya Blount, Danity Kane and let’s not forget the no talent having, singing group, Total, have all vanished from the face of the earth. Ain’t nobody seen or heard from them…since. Joc, if you are out there, please know that you need not be the next victim of the Bad Boy curse. Nuff said…
Sheree Whitfield of the Real (FAKE) Housewives of Atlanta done fired her publicist…but forgot to tell him! Check out the letter her “former” publicist Jonathan Clardy wrote to the AJC:
I would like to extend my apologies for our exchange on last nite at the SheBySheree clothing line launch.
I recently moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles and when I initially started working with Sheree Whitfield, as a publicist, I read all media and press concerning her as to acclimate myself.
In the execution of being a publicist, I did mention to you that I was aware of some of the articles that you had written about her, hoping that you would write something positive with regard to this event, it was not my intent to offend you or your photographer.
I would like to personally thank you and Cherry Banez for aprising me that I am not her publicist via your blog and article. I only wish that Ms. Whitfield had been forthright with me personally vs a media outlet.
Thanks for your understanding and consideration in this matter.
Now under normal circumstances I would BLAST Sheree for being so tacky BUT in her defense, I don’t blame her for firing that unprofessional clown. Mr. Clardy contacted EUR on more than one occasion seeking PR for Sheree…but the fool never returned phone calls or emails. Initially I thought he was afraid that I would be a lil’ too “real” in my interview but now I know that he was just plain old TRIFLING! Sheree, if you still want to be interviewed by EUR, holla at your girl. Nuff said…
T.I. is having a “Before I Go to Jail” concert right here in the ATL the night before he reports to jail to pay his debt to society. The concert will be held at Phillips Arena on May 24th at 6:00pm. Tickets go on sale TODAY and they are only $36!! Rumor has it that the reason the tickets are so cheap is because T.I. wanted to make it easy on a jokers wallet knowing how bad the economy is and 36 is also the number of months he was sentenced to. If you are in the area make sure you go and check out my boy.
Be sure to check out the one hour season finale of CW’s “The Game” tonight at 8:00pm E.S.T.
That’s all the dirt for now. Holla back at your girl…
