VH1 Adds T.O. to their Roster


Terrell Owens will jump on the celebreality bandwagon on Vh1 at the end of this month.  My girl, Tea (check out her site, here) pointed out this ad from the current issue of Essence and I HAD to talk about this one.  Here’s the press release:


The Terrell Owens Project is Set to Premiere in the Summer of 2009 on VH1 

Los Angeles, CA – January 26, 2009 – VH1 has teamed up with one of the most recognizable names and personalities in sports — Terrell Owens — who will star in his own reality show slated to premiere in the summer of 2009 on VH1.

The series follows one of the NFL’s biggest and most outspoken stars, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Terrell “T.O.” Owens.  In the series, T.O. will be shadowed in the off-season by his best friends and publicists Monique Jackson and Kita Williams as they battle the two sides of his large personality.  Viewers will discover that behind all the braggadocio, emotional histrionics, and sculpted physique that is the outspoken media magnet known to the world as “T.O.” — there is also a quiet, sensitive, mild-mannered guy from Alexander City, Alabama…that’s Terrell.

“We are thrilled to bring such a great athlete, who is one of the biggest names and personalities in all the world of sports to VH1 for a surprising high octane look inside his superstar life off the field,” said Jeff Olde, EVP Original Programming & Production.

Mo and Kita want to help Terrell match all the success he’s had on the field with that same kind of success off the field.  Now, after a string of relationships and off-the-field endeavors, Terrell is ready to re-examine his personal life and finally put a plan into action. These outspoken, vibrant women are more like T.O.’s sisters than people who work for him.  They will function as matchmakers and therapists and also put their marketing expertise to use and help him make his life off of the field as successful as his life on it!

The series is executive produced by Evan Prager and Jesse Ignjatovic for Den of Thieves.  Executive producers for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Alex Demyanenko, Noah Pollack and Jeff Olde.

You all know that I will be watching but what about you? Will you be tuning in?

VH1 will help ANYBODY find a mate


Three familiar faces will be getting their very own “Flavor of Love”  type of shows on VH1.  TLC’s, Chilli, Salt-N-Pepa’s, Pepa and VH1’s own, The Entertainer will all be looking for love on VH1 very soon.  Here’s the press release:

VH1 has given the green light to three new series starring pseudonymous talent. TLC’s “Chilli,” Salt n’ Pepa’s “Pepa” and “The Entertainer” from I Love NY and I Love Money will all star in new shows for the network in 2010. VH1 has also ordered a second season of Sober House with Dr. Drew and a seventh season of Celebrity Fit Club.

The untitled Pepa series is being billed as a “real life comedy” following Sandra “Pepa” Dalton as she searches for love after four years of celibacy. VH1 has picked up eight half hour episodes of the series.

The Chilli Project (working title) will feature the former TLC star searching for love with the help of relationship expert Tionna Smalls. The network has ordered eight half hour episodes of the program, which is from FremantleMedia North America.

The Entertainer will use a similar format to the network’s other dating shows, bringing together a group of young bachelorettes that try to woo Frank “The Entertainer” Moresco’s heart, and help him move out of his parent’s basement. VH1 has ordered 10 one hour episodes.

It’s kind of crazy how everyone goes on national tv to look for love and then surprise surprise, they realize that all of the contestants on the show are already actors, singers, pornstars, etc. and when they finally find a match they can’t stay together long enough to even make it to the reunion show.  But, no matter how fake it is, I always end up falling into the trap of tuning in every week.

Frankie is Engaged???


Keyshia Cole’s biological mother, Frankie, is a straight fool.  She’s just gotten engaged to her 22 year old boyfriend,Mon, and got his name tattoed on her lower back.  She claims that he wanted her to get the tattoo right above her derriere so that he could “hit it every night.” EWWWWWWW.  Tatting the names of the men in their lives must run in the family because Keyshia recently got her man’s name, D. Gibson, inked on her shoulder and Neffe has a huge forearm tattoo of her baby daddy’s name.  Whatever happened to showing your committment by getting a wedding ring? Am I old fashioned for even writing that?



At least we know that this will be good fodder for the upcoming Frankie and Neffe show.  Will you be tuning in?

Bethenny Frankel Finally Finds Love


If you watch The Real Housewives of New York then you know that Bethenny Frankel has been hard up for a man since the show’s inception.  During the two seasons of the show, she was admittedly worried that she could never “have it all” referring to a successful career as well as a love life.  The celeb chef found a boo at Tenjune a nightclub in Manhattan’s meatpacking district.  Bethenny’s new beau, Jason Hoppy, works in real estate and has already hooked her ring finger up with some bling that has sparked rumor of an engagement.  The couple is not engaged but Bethenny refers to the ring as a “placeholder” for the real thing.  Hoppy will appear in the third season of The RHONY and hopefully this will add some spice to the show.

Tiny and Toya Premiere Party


Tiny and Toya, the stars of BET’s newest reality show, held a premiere party at Ludacris’ restaurant in Atlanta.  Former member of Xscape and “Atlanta housewife,” Kandi Buruss hosted the party and the guests gave great reviews of the show(of course they did). 


Kandi looked great and this is the best that I’ve seen Tiny look in a long time.  As for the guest, they looked….interesting.

The Groupie Hierarchy

The cast of Candy Girls

The cast of Candy Girls

So, I watched Candy Girls this weekend.  I know it’s not the most interesting show but there were a few tidbits in this episode.  I  was able to get the break down of what I call the groupie food chain.  Here’s my interpretation of the rundown straight from the “professionals”:

The Groupie: She’s the chick that goes to every event in hopes of meeting a star.  The groupie will go anywhere and be everywhere but will never reap any benefits from the celebrity because she’s at the bottom of the barrel.  The most she’ll get is hard d*ck and bubble gum.

The Jump-off: She’s the one that get’s the party started. Her main purpose is to liven things up and get things crackin’.

The Sideline:  If it weren’t for the main chick this girl would be running thangs.  She gets as much, if not more than the main chick (i.e. clothes, money, cars, etc.).  She gets the guy without the baggage.

The Main Chick:  This chick is wifey.  She gets to go to the red carpet events and has access to all privileges.  She has all the cars, clothes and jewelry and actually lives with the baller.

There you have it! Straight from the hoe’s girl’s mouths.  And they should know because I’m sure they’ve filled each position at some point in their lives.   One of the girls must have been paying close attention to her groupie manual because she snagged a baller.  Terricka  received a vist from her baller boyfriend, NFL player Antonio Cromartie and he blessed her with a 20 carat diamond necklace.  How do I know it was 20 carats? Because she asked him as soon as he put it on her neck.  So classy! 

As I was trolling the internet this morning, I came across a disgruntled video chick that had a lot to say about the stars of the show.  If you want to know who’s sleeping with who and who may be a lesbian, click here.

Bust It Baby

Plies is ridiculous. He’s like a walking minstrel with a mouthful of gold sh*t bricks.  And now to add insult to injury, he is pushing for a reality show.  He calls himself a goon and now he’s looking for a GOONETTE.  I wonder what network is gonna air this mess.  BET, perhaps?  It’d be a great substitute for UNCUT.  It’ll set us back another 20 years.  That’s the goal of BET, right?

Shout out to Janeen for the video!

Danger, She Smashed the Homie!

Have you guys been watching For the Love of Ray J?  If so, then you have probably seen the manly roster of “women” vying for his attention.  If we’ve learned nothing else from this show, we’ve learned that Tom Green is still funny and women will do anything to get on t.v. 

I have a couple of  questions concerning this show:

1) Why does Ray J wear a red fur coat around the house?  Aren’t they in L.A.?

2) Why doesn’t Unique wear a bra? She waits until his family comes to town before she decides to hike those pancakes up.

3) Is Ray’s grandmother senile? She was a sweet old lady but she just didn’t seem all there.

4) Was Mrs. Norwood screaming  No, No, No, to Ray J as adamantly as she was last night when he was bangin’ Kim Kardashian’s back out for everyone to see?  She was really acting like Ray J was some sweet, innocent 7-year old. I hope she realizes that he’s already hittin’ all of those girls off.  Seems like someone has a bit of an Oedipus complex.  Anyone else notice that?

5) Did Mr. Norwood have an Omega tat on his hand?  Oh, those crazy college days always come back to bite that ass.

So, Danger was outed for dating some of Ray J’s friends and doing the nasty with one of them.   I can’t fault her though, I bet if they sat down and compared notes he probably hit some of her friends too. We know Ray J ain’t no virgin either.  I just wonder how in the hell she would know his friends already.  But we know that half the girls looking for love on reality shows always end up being bustdowns (see: skeezers) anyway. For those of you who haven’t seen the show yet, Tom Green’s song went something like this, “You got three girls, they’re all cute.  But Danger, she knocked the boots.”  Chorus: “Danger! She smashed the Homie! Danger! She smashed the homie! ”  This could be a smash hit.  Watch it here.


Speaking of bustdowns, Caviar, from Ray J’s show is now giving Bobby Valentino some groupie luv.  I can’t figure out if that’s a step up or down. What do you think? Who’s a bigger man-whore? Ray Or Bobby?

 Caviar also has a part in Twista’s new video “Wetter.”  Big ups to the Chi!!   Check out the video below

Is that Beautiful from Flavor of Love on the motorcycle??? It looks like her and I know she’s from Chicago. Watch the video again and let me know.

So…you’ve heard of those OTHER housewives???

We’ve heard of The Real Housewives of Orange County, NYC, and of course, our favorites, ATL. The newest cast of Housewives hail from Jersey and are slated to premiere May 12 on Bravo. Every new season had me enthralled with the reckless spending, catfights and all around drama.  All the ingredients needed to reel me in and have me totally addicted!  Each group of ladies brings all types of juicy scandal to primetime cable and I tune in weekly. But they continue to skip over the WINDY CITY !  Chi-Town is drippin’ in scandal. Way back in the day, we were the epicenter of MOB activity.  We are home to crooked governors and sheisty senators (Blago, Burris…u know the details!). So If they want drama, we got DRAMA.

But besides all that, we have class. We have style. We have Michigan Ave…the Mag Mile for goodness sake.  We are the birthplace of  The Louis Vuitton Don.  We are home to the hottest First Family that this nation has ever seen!!  So if  The Real Housewives won’t come to the Chi…I am here to rep for Windy.  So sit back, relax and enjoy seeing life through the eyes of a diva from Crook…err umm… I mean COOK County!!!
