Celebs have been tweeting their azzes off and I have the pics to prove it.  I love social networking sites because celebs seem to let their guard down and you get to get an inside look into their lives. I’ve compiled a bunch of random twitpics and I figured, hey, why not share with all of you. Enjoy!

The Truth


 I am really feeling Drake.  Everybody has been buzzing about him but I didn’t really pay attention.  I just couldn’t get past the fact that he was a rapper from Canada that was a character on Degrassi.   I felt like the game didn’t need another fake thug false flagging about the hard life he really didn’t have. After listening to some of his music, I’ve changed my mind.  The boy has flow, tight lyrics and nice beats. What more could you want? He even has Chi-town flava and you all know I love my city, so that’s a huge compliment coming from me.  I also heard that he’s dating video model Bria Myles and he gets extra cool points because she’s cute as a button.  Okay, maybe “cute” isn’t the right word to describe this sex kitten but y’all know what I mean.  To top it all of, he can sing too!  Check out his some of his songs below and hopefully you’ll fall in love with his music too.

Miss Honey of The Week

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.

 This week’s Miss Honey is none other than The Louis Vuitton Don himself, Kanye West. He hails from the great city of Chicago and is a musical genius.  He’s a multi-platinum artist, has written and/or produced songs for various artists and has now debuted his very own line of sneakers for Louis Vuitton as well as Nike.  He’s livin’ the good life and loving it.  Listen to him discuss who inspires his style in the video below:

Ain’t No Love in This Club


So some of you might have heard how Keri Hilson dissed Beyonce and Ciara on the remix of her hit, “Turnin’ Me On” featuring T-Pain and Lil Wayne.  For those of you that missed this, here’s how it went down.  The diss track was released by super-producer, Polow da Don, who is also Keri’s close friend and head of her label, Zone 4.  Keri’s verse is below and you can listen to the whole song here:

“I ain’t trying to start no mess but there’s something on my chest/ that I need to get off/ cause you turning me off /your vision cloudy if you think you the best, you can dance/ you can sing / but need to move it to the left/She need to go have some babies/She need to sit down she fake/them other chicks ain’t even worth my time to talk about/Been getting dollars/ go and get your money up/Go head and tell these folks how long I’ve been writing your song/ I been putting you on/ Just check the credits ho/ And if you want me you can find me in Decatur ho.”  

Well, Keri’s beef with Bey seems to stem from an incident involving Usher.  Keri collaborated with Usher and created a verse for, Love in This Club, Part II, the remix to his hit, Love in This Club.  Keri’s vocals were scrapped after Beyonce heard the song and wanted to be on the track.  Usher’s consolation prize to Keri was allowing her to be his love interest in the video for the original song.  According to the NY Post, this wasn’t much of a prize.  It was reported that Keri was mistreated on the video set by Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster.  Here’s what was written:

“The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra,” and Foster “took a dislike to Usher’s longtime choreographer, Jamaica, and banned her from the set.”“It was supposed to be a sexy video shoot,” “And Tameka was there the entire time guarding like a watchdog. It was ridiculous – she knows Keri and knows she’s no video ho or Karrine Steffans.” “Tameka is very insecure,” “Even in rehearsals she was weird and clearly not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude. The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra. Tameka wouldn’t let Keri have her hairdresser there – she had to use the hairdresser who was doing the extras.”

Tameka is reported to be possessive, insecure and very jealous.  But if Usher likes it, I love it.  I’m just surprised  he married a woman at all, let alone had 2 kids.  He was always a tad bit Miss Honey-ish to me. Maybe Tameka shouldn’t be so worried about Usher’s female friends…

A New Boo for Chris Breezy???


Chris Brown supposedly has a new girlfriend.  He was seen leaving a tattoo parlor in Hollywood with an “unknown” woman on April 11th.  It has since been discovered that the mystery woman is Natalie Mejia of girl group, Girlicious. I don’t know about this, it could be a publicity stunt.  I can see it helping out Natalie’s career because I don’t think anyone even knows her group exists. But I don’t see what’s in it for Chris.   In my opinion, he should stay out of the public eye with women, at least until after the trial is over.  If they are a couple, I really hope that she’s mastered the art of breathing with no air.  My advice for her; Stay out of Lambos, don’t check text messages and wear lots of Vaseline (he won’t be able to hold you down and get any lucky bites in!).  Natalie, watch your back!!

Is That Yo’ Chick????


Fellas, You can Look But Please don't Touch!!"

Fellas, You can Look But Please don't Touch!!"

Bow Wow is always gettin’ into something. He’s like a little brother that’s always going down the wrong path but you can’t ever stop him.  He’s recently gotten himself into some “girl” trouble.  Here’s what happened.  He interviewed with Giant magazine and professed his love for Angela Simmons.  Here’s a snippet of the article:

” Rapper BOW WOW has declared his love for the daughter of RUN-DMC star Joseph Simmoms in a new magazine article. The 22-year-old hitmaker/actor, real name Shad Moss, has been romantically linked to Angela Simmons, 21, for the past year – and now he’s going public with his adoration in the pages of Giant magazine. He says, “Angela Simmons is the love of my life. She’s a young black woman doing something incredible. “She’s a CEO of a company at 21 years old and a positive role model for kids.”

That’s so cute, right? But what isn’t so cute is that Angela has gone on the record in her blog stating that she’s been there, done that and is done with it.  Here’s what she wrote in response:

“Hey global grind fam. 🙂 Just checkin in with ya and keeping you updated with my life. Before i tell you guys about whats going on with me i wanted to address summtin that i’ve been hearing lately. i jus want to shut down any and all rumors about my relationships because you know how that can get. i am currently in the happiest relationship i have eva been in and MY other half lives in texas. so thats all i will say about that. Any person i have talked to in the past i wish them the best of luck :). So anywayyyyyyyyyyyyy im excited about easter and going home to nyc to see my fam tm . im kinda feeling homesick lol. first time in 2 yrs. its finally really cacthing up to me man. i travel so much that i dont realize how long im away from home shesssssh.:) well g2g go get the hair done and have movie night with my sis and cuzzin. 🙂

so ill ttyl guys

well thanks for the love 🙂



But this isn’t Boweezy’s biggest problem.  The problem is…..Bow Wow may have unknowingly slept with a transexual!!!!!!

A Sandra Rose reader sent in this email along with a pic in to the website:

“Apparently her names Nadia and she is from LA but travels everywhere from ATL, DC, Miami, and NY, all the popular spot celebs and people are at. She’s with one of those escort agencies. Nadia and Bow Wow hooked up on a one night stand but I still don’t know to this day if Bow Wow knows he f*cked a tranny or not because she looks and acts like a natural born female. I also heard her “milkshake” brings all the straight and bisexual boys to the yard. Hopefully this will be a lesson to these men out there to not just f*ck anything with a cute face and phat butt walking cause it very well might be a MAN!”

Damn  Bow Wow!! All I can say is, at least she does look like a woman. I am good at spotting Miss Honeys but I might have been fooled on this one. Check out her pics and let me know in the comments section if she would’ve fooled you!

Atlanta’s Newest Housewife

Newest ATL Housewife-Kandi Burruss

Newest ATL Housewife-Kandi Burruss

None of us can wait for the second season of Bravo’s realest housewives to air. I’m especially excited because I hear that there is gonna be DRAMA!!!  The loveable DeShawn Snow was booted off the show and will be replaced with Kandi Burruss, former member of R&B group Xscape.  Kandi beat competitors Angie Stone and Ralph Tresvant’s ex-wife for the spot.   Word on the street is that a lot of skeletons will be hopping out of her closet. This doesn’t surprise me though because she’s best friends with Tiny. Tameka “Tiny” Cottle is rapper T.I.’s girlfriend and mother two of his sons.  She also delivered a stillborn daughter in 2007 , who was also fathered by T.I.  I know if T.I.’s baby mama is in any way affiliated with this show, there is bound to be some mess POPPIN’ OFF!! 

Now I wonder if they are going to address all that drama that happened last season.  After the show aired it seemed like everybody’s business was on the streets. First, Nene was allegedly evicted from the luxury home that was featured on the show.  The home ended up being a rental property and was not even owned by the family.  The Leakes owed over $6,000 in back rent. 

Sheree also has some dirt going on as well.  Back when she was 19, she was arrested twice in her hometown, Ohio, for theft.  And that ain’t the half of it.  Sheree had a daughter when she was 15 years old. But that’s not the bad part!! She doesn’t claim her own daughter. She calls her “a close friend” whenever she refers to her.  She also has two younger children fathered by ex-NFLer, Bob Whitfield. She actually allowed these kids to be on the show…a little bit.  Look at the pic below of her kids and her “close friend”.   Bitch Please!

Sheree and ALL THREE of her children

Sheree has also been evicted from her crib-that’s not in her name.  She was also caught speeding and claimed that she couldn’t afford proper representation so she requested a PUBLIC DEFENDER.  She is also being sued by her attorneys for unpaid legal fees.  The amount has accrued to almost $70,000, probably due to her divorce.  What is she gon’ do y’all??? She was trying to get 7 figures in her divorce settlement and that didn’t happen. She also claimed that she can’t get a job because she isn’t educated enough.

Now on to half-wig wearin’ Kim.  Her townhouse is supposedly up for sale.  She bought it in 2006 for $486,000 but it was only worth $371,000 by 2007.  Wait a MINUTE!!! Why the hell does she live in a townhouse anyway?  I thought this show was about living LARGE. And what about Big Poppa?  Kim broke up with him but is now dating billionaire doctor Stefan Lemperle.  Stefan is in a pickle right now because he decided to inject some wrinkle filler, unapproved by the FDA, in his patients and ended up losing his gig as CEO of Artes Medical and gained a host of other legal issues. Dumb ASS!

Now for sweet Lisa.  She couldn’t possibly have any drama, right???  WRONG! She filed for bankruptcy in 2007  after being sued for $150,000 that was loaned to her by her ex-husband Keith Sweat.  He loaned her this money for some movie called Blackball.  I ain’t never heard of this movie. She probably took that money straight to the Prada store.  Or was sticking it straight down Ed Hartwell’s thong.

Let me not fail to mention, Lisa has a whole bunch of aliases.  Sharon Millette Wu, Sharon Lisa Sweat, Lisa Wu-Sweat and the latest Lisa Wu-Hartwell.  Why all the names? Who is she running from?  Bravo TV is not the best hiding spot.  I wonder if Ed thought this one through…hmmm.  Lisa also has two sons fathered by Keith Sweat.  He has full custody and will not allow the boys to appear on the show.

So there you have it. I hope they address some of this drama on the new season.  If not, I’m sure there will be all kind of new scandal to discuss.  Poor DeShawn, there was no way that she could compete with all this!  The old housewives better watch it though.  Kandi and Tiny look like they can beat a chick down!!

U Likey or U Hatey???

Dawn Richard, former member of Danity Kane, attended a Gotham Magazine party celebrating the issue release featuring, “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera.  Dawn looks great, especially considering the fact  that she’s been looking like a bag lady on MTB4.  I was almost convinced that her and Que were sharing a pipe when the cameras weren’t around.  But now, I’m not so sure. Check out her pics and let me know if u likey or u hatey…..Me Likey!!

Dazed and Confused

Rihanna has been seen everywhere since the alleged assault occurred between her and Chris Breezy.  She seems to be doing better but there’s also something a little off about her.  Don’t get me wrong, she has every right to be discombobulated considering everything that she’s been through.  But she reminds me of that chick in the neighborhood that’s pretty but kinda roams around aimlessly.  New guys in the neighborhood ask, “Who dat? She fine.”  But everybody tells them, “Dawg, she crazy as hell.”  So, I’ve started referring to her as Crazy Ass Rih Rih. Check out her pics and you be the judge!
