T.I. hit up Camp Creek Y.M.C.A. to give a motivational speech to a few families and children on the southside yesterday. He also gave out a few free turkeys just in time for Thanksgiving. I commend Tip for quickly getting out this positive message immediately after the Dirty Awards fights. Hats off to his PR….very well done!
Kanye West hit up the Conan O’Brien show recently sounding mad tired and hoarse. He and Conan chopped it up for a while about Ye’s fashion choices (hilarious) as they viewed a few of his past fashion statements. Kanye talks about his disdain for the paparazzi and says he plans to take responsibility in changing the way they work with celebs. He also takes credit for pioneering using the audio processor (voice thingy) cause he used it first in College Dropout.
Kim Zolciak, aka the token white chick on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been really vocal lately about her disappointment of the show. This chick has blamed everyone from Bloggers to make-up artists for her poor portrayal stating that it’s not her fault that she looked 50 and not 29. Honestly, I don’t think any amount of makeup could fix what 20 years of smoking can do to a face…but that’s just me.
On claiming to be 29:
I’m not a liar. You can put that in plain English. Integrity is most important to me. I’m actually 30 now, but I have to agree about some of the footage … I did not do own my makeup the majority of the time and there’s one instance where I was getting makeup done for a photo shoot and I looked 50. It was terrible. But you pound on that black eye shadow and big red lips, what do you expect? I’m sorry they feel that way, but the reality is I am 30 — and you can take it or leave it.
On Her awful singing:
The singing in the studio was horrific. What was that? It made for good television. We had been in the studio hours and hours that day and most people know your producer doesn’t sing or stand next to you. He’s on the soundboard. So it made for good television, but my album will speak for itself.
Kim also blamed the show for the breakup of her “engagement” to a married man. She tried to clean it up by comparing her situation to Sheree’s (in that Big Papa has been estranged from his wife – but not divorced) and alluded to the fact that us “bloggers” got it right when we revealed the his identitfy.

Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick took the above mugshot today as he arrived in court to enter his plea of guilty in Virginia State Court. Vick, currently serving a 23-month sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas on federal charges of bankrolling a dogfighting ring at a home he owned in eastern Virginia’s rural Surry County, may be eligible to leave prison early and potentially return to pro football.
Vick, 28, arrived wearing a gray suit and wrist and ankle shackles, but the restraints were removed by the time he entered his plea. The one-time Atlanta Falcons star also pleaded not guilty to a count of cruelty to animals, but that charge was dropped under his plea deal.
He received a three-year suspended sentence – far less than the maximum of 10 years he could have faced.
“I want to apologize to the court, my family, and to all the kids who looked up to me as a role model,” Vick told the judge.
Vick’s mother Brenda Boddie, brother Marcus Vick and fiancee Kijafa Frink walked in together and sat together in the front row of the gallery with other family and friends. Vick’s mother declined to comment to reporters but Marcus Vick acknowledged the family was glad the ordeal was nearly over. (Source)
Ne-Yo has just released his newest video for his next single “Mad” from Year of the Gentleman. It’s quite insightful…almost makes me wanna make up with a few folks before they die. Nevermind…on second thought I’ll be better off waiting. Some things are better left unsaid.
