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?

Cocktail Clears Things Up


Ray J.’s favorite beverage, Cocktail, has decided to speak out about her relationship with Ray and how she feels about the filming of Season 2 of “For the Love of Ray J.”  She took to her Myspace page and said:

“So most of you have seen photos floating around with me and a guy who is obviously not Ray and I want to clear some things up. When I was on the show, I truly fell for Ray. I invested my time, effort, and emotions into him and wanted things to work. But the reality of reality television is that it doesn’t always work. Ray and I are no longer together. We have not been together for awhile now but we have remained friends and when we hang out we have a great time. I miss him very much and respect what decisions he has made.  As for the tour we just did and “acting” like we were together, it comes with the show. What people saw of us on tour was real. When we are together we have a cool chemistry. We have fun and enjoy each others company. But at the end of the day I wasn’t the right person for Ray and although it hurt me at least he was honest about the situation before it went any further.”

Yea, yea, yea…he was never her man, in my opinion.  Reality tv kills me because there’s nothing real about it.  As for the man that she’s been seen with, his name is Mark Partridge and he’s the brother of Audrina from “The Hills.”  Good for them, I think he’s a little bit more her speed anyway.

Heaven Sent


I’ve always liked Keyshia Cole because she just seems so down to earth.  She’s an around-the-way girl that we all grew up with.  That’s why I’m so happy that things really seem to be coming together for her.  Her reality show had a successful run, she’s had platinum albums and now she seems to be in love.  She performed here at the Chicago Theater and photographer, Prince Williams, caught some flicks of her and her boo, Cleveland Cavalier Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. They make such a cute couple!   Keyshia opens up in the latest issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine, click here for an excerpt of the interview.   Also be sure to tune in to Frankie and Neffe’s new show debuting on BET this August.  Check out Keyshia singing her heart out and hanging out with her new man below.
