U Likey or U Hatey?


Eva “The Diva” Marcille has gone through many looks since her days on America’s Next Top Model.  I noticed that she has been sporting locks that have been gradually getting longer and darker.  Some of the syles I like and others not so much.  I must say one of my favs is the pulled back bun it gives her an elegant look. But this isn’t about me, it’s about you. What do you think about long hair on Eva? U likey or U hatey?

*Sidenote: Eva dropped her last name Pigford and uses her middle name “Marcille” in it’s place.  I guess she did this because the last name Pigford isn’t very modelesque but now that she’s engaged she may be starting at square one.  When she marries her future husband, if she decides to take his last name, she will be Mrs. Gross. Not that Gross is a horrible last name but it ain’t that far from Pigford.

Eva is also a model for Phlaunt Hair company, you can read about her photoshoot here.

Miss Honeys of the Day

Miss Honeys are everywhere.  A Miss Honey is that person at the mall, the club or even the grocery store that just makes you look twice.  They are doing their thing and could care less what you think about it. They offer us fashion tips, makeup advice and sometimes even counsel us on our relationships.  And let’s be honest they do provide us with some comic relief too. They’re fly, fabulous and fierce.

These are a couple of Miss Honeys that I had to show you guys. I couldn’t wait until next week!!!

Double Trouble-*Update*

*This all turned out to be a hoax.  A local radio station sent the impersonator to the museum as a prank.  Everybody’s pranking Bey, who did she piss off?


Beyonce “Imma Diva” Knowles was not kidding when she made that song. She really thinks that the rules don’t apply to her.  While in Vienna on tour, she decided that could not pass up an opportunity to shop and ditched her fans for some new duds.  Instead of attending a pre-scheduled private tour of the Albertina Museum, she and Mama Knowles decided to kick it on the streets of Vienna.  She was seen shopping and carrying on while a look-a-like was at the museum signing autographs and taking pictures with fans and employees of the museum.  How diva is that?  I know she’s a hustla but damn you getting paid for not working. I love me some Beyonce but she really went too far with this one.  She knows she could only get away with something like this in a place like Austria because LAWD knows that woman ain’t look NOTHING like Beyonce.  Does Bey really think we ALL look alike?  Look at the picture and let me know, would you have been fooled?

Take a Fantasy Ride with Ciara

Ciara has been styling and profiling all over blogs everywhere creating a stir about her album release. She’s changed the cd artwork a couple of times and has been seen all over the globe rocking hot hair and outfits.  Now she’s added another promotional tool to her roster. She’s started a mini-show on youtube chronicling the weeks leading to the release date of her album, “Fantasy Ride,” which will be released on May 5.  You can hear her unedited vocal skills as well as watch her visits to the gym.  It’s a cute idea and at least she proved that she can actually carry a tune (I know a lot of us never knew that!).  It seems like the album may be hot fire an worthy of heavy rotation on the IPOD.

Run It Back-Danger! She Smashed The Homie!


After watching For The Love of Ray-J’s reunion show, I was going to post a lil sumthin’ sumthin’ about all the tomfoolery but it was just an overload of nonsense.  Between Danger looking like she dyed her hair with cherry Kool-Aid and Unique looking like a “Mean Old Lion” there was just too much to say.  In my opinion, he should have went for realness and picked Chardonnay but instead he went for the superficial and picked his Kim Kardashian knockoff.   Hopefully this results in a show for Chardonnay so she can find some love on VH1. Or maybe she can come out with an instructional pole dancing DVD. I’d buy it!  

I had to revisit this classic clip from the show.  This was a great moment for reality tv. If you’ve seen it, watch it again. If you still haven’t seen it, where have you been?

You gotta watch the official music video too.  I may never get this song out of my head!

Tweet!!!! and I ain’t talkin’ about Twitter!


Ever since this Southern Hummingbird flew on the scene, I have loved her music. Y’all remember Tweet, right? The beautiful face and voice that has been featured on tracks with Timbaland, Missy and Ginuwine.  She debuted her single about self-lovin’ and touchin’ in 2002 and her cd, Southern Hummingbird, was off the chain.   In 2006, she signed to a new label and her third album called Love, Tweet is on it’s way.  Talent runs in the family and it’s evident by the appearance of Tweet’s daughter, Tashawna, on the music scene. On Tweet’s second album, It’s Me Again, Tashawna and Tweet showcased their skills on the song “Two of Us” and Tashawna was a little girl back then.  She’s grown now and  her voice is just as strong  as her mother’s.  I can’t wait to hear more from these two.

I’m on Team Dawn!


After watching the MTB4 reunion, some fans may have been holding out hope that Danity Kane would possibly get back together. It seems like some members were open to it, while others weren’t feeling the idea at all. D.Woods really seemed bitter and if there was some type of reunion cd, I doubt if she would be part of it. She blogged about the whole situation on GlobalGrind, here’s her explanation of the breakup.

“Friends, romans, country men, play cousins, and all my single ladies…lend
me your ears! I’ve learned that many of you may be disappointed and even
upset by the recent course of events with my departure from Danity Kane; I
am as well. However, the evil that men do lives beyond them, the good is
often forgotten, and how quickly we forget how this whole thing started. You
may want to know what happened to bring us to this point, you wonder if it
was real and when the punch line will roll in. You are searching for answers
and closure.

I am truly sorry for the disappointment and even more sorry to
tell you that you will never find the answers or what’s real, while watching
“reality” tv. The concoction of lies, truth, and entertainment has been the
main course on the menu you’ve been eating for quite some time my friends.
However, I am confident that the truth will “come out” when the sh*t hits
the fan, literally!

When that great day comes you can come find me. Uninspired and
malnutritioned as you may be from the mediocracy…you can find me. I’ll be
by myself, standing on a bare stage ready to light a fire in the hearts and
minds of you all. No well oiled machine to crank out thoughts, feelings and
images for you to consume, it will be just me. And we will feed off
each other to create a new movement of what we want to see on stage and on
screen.  I hope you will continue to support me and that I will see you once
I emerge from the constraints of the smoke and mirrors.

The revolution will not be televised…that b*tch went digital! Man against
the machine.”

Ya girl D.woods

The rest of the girls conducted some backstage interviews after the show.  Listen to what they had to say.

Even Pussies Fight


Danity Kane is not the only girl group publicly beefing with each other.  The Pussycat Dolls are salty at Nicole Scherzinger and Melody Thornton is not being quiet about it.  Nicole has been reportedly distancing herself from the other girls and some recent singles have been billed “The Pussycat Dolls featuring Nicole Scherzinger.”  I don’t know how they expected this to fly.  Of course the other group members would be mad.  It happened to The Supremes, The LaBelles, Destiny’s Child and almost every other girl group out there. If you wanna be solo, you better tell your group before you start establishing yourself as a solo act, if you expect to continue touring with them.
