The queen of hip-hop/R&B, Mary J. Blige will be featured on tonight’s (June 14th) episode of TVOne’s One on One with Cathy Hughes. The songstress touched on several topics ranging from to her battles with drugs and alcohol to her relationship with her hubby Kendu Issacs. In a revealing clip, Mary discusses how she’s still struggling with accepting a drama-free relationship and how her faith is guiding her path:
At the beginning it was even hard, and even now it’s still hard because I never had anyone to be this firm and not “yes ma’am’ me to death…. And I never had anyone that I could believe cared for me that much so it’s difficult for me to see that he really has my best interest at heart sometimes. Because I’m living in the past of people not having my best interest at heart and so it’s like ‘this is really to good to be true’ but then again..thats where God comes in and I’m like ‘Lord, what do I do?’ and he said ‘Trust in me and don’t lean on your own understanding.’
So I’m trying to walk in that ….and I’m learning so much. I’ve come a long way…but I still have so much work to do.
Mary also chats about why she’ll never endorse a certain product and the fans who condemn her for being happy. More sneak peeks from the interview below:
I dropped a hint on Twitter yesterday that quite a few people took note of. In case you missed it:
Somebody just told me some tomfoolery is going on at Fulton County Courthouse. Those papers shoulda been stamped & filed by now. Friday, June 12th 4:54pm
Well, a source informed me a few weeks ago that Usher’s divorce papers were in the works and swore me to secrecy. The same source called me yesterday confused as to why the papers hadn’t been released and expressed concern as to how someone inside Fulton County could block public documents from being revealed. As you know, court documents are open record, so today they were finally posted via Fulton County’s website, with a hearing scheduled for July 15, 2009: Continue Reading…
Today’s flashback video piggy backs on my last post “An Ode to Eddie’s Gold”. Check out Nelly’s Grillz produced by Jermaine Dupri and featuring Paul All, Ali & Big Gipp. Don’t act like y’all weren’t singing this ish just a few short years ago! I know I was….and I HATE grills. Anyway, I think it’s about time for a “Porcelain Grillz” remix cause dayum near everybody in the video has remixed their mouths. Somebody call JD….and tell ‘em to get on that.
Once a staple at Greenbriar Flea Market, Eddie’s Gold Teeth catered to any ATLien who had an appetite for a grill. So in honor of the “Flashback,” I thought I’d devote a post to Mr. Eddie Plein. The “godfather of grills,” also known as the owner of Eddie’s Gold Teeth.
I’ve never met Eddie personally, but I HAVE met several recipients of his custom works. By the way, you have too…there’s Big Boi, Andre 3000, Big Gipp, Lil Jon, Cee-Lo….the list goes on and on.
Not to mention the non-rapping regular joes who just wanted to have a lil GOLD in their mouf!
The fad has since gave way to porcelain veneers but the fond memories of the bling shall remain in our hearts forever.
Yep…Eddie Plein was/is responsible for all of THAT and contrary to popular belief, wearing grills started in South America and not Southwest Atlanta! Ha!
Peep what Eddie had to say about how the fad started, why his craziest request was from Andre 3000 and what he’s up to now: Continue Reading…
It was family fun day last night as Eddie Murphy’s new film “Imagine That” premiered in Atlanta. Lil Scrappy, Diamond and their two cuties as well as several other A-town celebs and their families were spotted at the theatre. Steve Stoute, Bob Whitfield, Tameka Foster Raymond, Stephon Marbury (Boston Celtics), Jason Richardson (Phoenix Suns) and more attended the screening.
Tameka Foster-Ramond and a few of her kids along with her mom and Lil Cinco.
I know you guys all heard the rumors of Usher filing divorce in an Atlanta court yesterday. Well apparently no papers have been filed….in Atlanta…..yet. The separation rumors are true but who knows? Maybe they can work it out. *shrugs*
