Ok… so my post about Chilli’s new VH1 show prompted me to do a search for Flavor Flav and this is what I came up with.
Flav was spotted Saturday (April 3rd) sitting ringside during the Bernard Hopkins v. Roy Jones fight and he was joined by a new lady friend… or two: Continue Reading…
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC has a new reality dating show on VH1 called “What Chilli Wants” but unlike shows of the past, she won’t be sharing the hot tub or handing out fake bling to her suitors.

Instead, the 39-year-old singer and mother meets bachelors at black-tie affairs and confers with a dating expert, as well as her 12-year-old son.
Chilli’s new show is amongst the calculated efforts of VH1 to move past the buffoonery of such shows like Flavor of Love and it’s sleezy spin-offs, I love New York, I love Money…. etc.
Although the shows fared well with VH1’s bottom line, executive vice president Jeff Olde explains their calculated decision to shift gears:
“We constantly have to evolve and tell our audience different stories,” he says. “I love that we’ve been able to get more diverse with our audience by – in large part – attracting African-American women to the network. We got them in the door with some shows, and now I’m excited about where we’re going and how we’re telling them different kinds of stories.”
It’s about dayum time!
“What Chilli Wants” premieres April 11th but I’ve been invited to a private screening this week. I can’t wait to see how she differentiates her show from the others.
Check out a few promo shots from Ciara’s recent video shoot for, “Ride It,” featuring Ludacris. I love that she’s reppin the “A”!
“Ride it” cowgirl!!

Whitney Houston just came back but she needs a break already. If you recall, several fans walked out of her Australian concert back in February, citing that the 46 year old singer just wasn’t ready to perform.

About two dozen women marched topless through the streets of Portland, Maine (April 3rd) in an effort to erase what they see as a double standard on male and female nudity.
While the pack of bouncing boobs caused quite a stir amongst male onlookers, none of the women were charged with any crime. Police said there were no incidents and no arrests, since nudity is illegal in Maine only if genitals are displayed.
Ty McDowell, who organized the march, said she was “enraged” by the turnout of men attracted to the demonstration. The purpose, she said, was for society to have the same reaction to a woman walking around topless as it does to men without shirts on. (Source)
Talk about a double standard! Maybe Erykah Badu shoulda chose Portland as the location for her “Window Seat” video.
