Word on the curb is that The Mo’Nique Show is on the chopping block!
BET’s late night talk show, hosted by Monica Imes AKA Mo’Nique along with her sidekick Rodney Perry, would have started its third season this fall but rumor has it, the show has been cancelled.
The Academy award winning actress/comedienne, who was just honored by Big Boi’s Big Kidz Foundation, has been plagued in recent months with reports of disputes between she and some of her higher ups at the network.
Besides all the talk show hoopla, Mo’Nique is reportedly scheduled to appear in a new new movie called “Bumped,” which is currently in pre-production.
If BET really does can The Mo’Nique Show, will you miss it?
*UPDATE 7/27/11 ~ 3:38pm: Rodney Ho of AJC’s Radio & TV Talk just confirmed that the show has been cancelled. He received confirmation of the cancellation from Comedian Rodney Perry via text message.
At about 1:30 p.m., I called Rodney Perry, who was Mo’Nique’s sidekick on the show. He said he was running into a meeting and didn’t answer my question. While I was at lunch over at the mall court, at 1:40 p.m. EST, he texted me:
“I was told indefinite hiatus.” READ MORE

I know that if it wasn’t for Nelly, some of you wouldn’t know who Ashanti is, but she has fans and they wanna know what’s up with her.

[Sidebar: We have no idea WHAT is coming or where she’s going… but apparently it will be “soon” (whenever it is).]
Hope that helps… 😕

[Editor’s Note: After the positive response former NFL baller Bob Whitfield received on his 7 Reasons Why Women Cheat, I’ve decided to give him the SFTA platform yet again. This time Bob takes aim at Cupid and the fairy tale feelings of LOVE vs. LIKE. Again, I have to state I have absolutely NOTHING to do with this commentary, and while he has me feelin ‘some kinda way’ right now, these are clearly all BOB’S views and opinions and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of me… ATLien! ]
LOVE is… ‘a non-muthaf*ckin factor boo’ in your relationship! (I can hear the boo’s raining in now!)
For couples, love is like the flour mixed with the grease that makes the gravy.
LOVE has a magical all-purpose element to make a relationship recipe that is much more robust, exciting, romantic, etc and so on…. but who just wants gravy, or the special love sauce?
Relationships, for LOVE’s sake, lead to Marriage. Which is simply a social economic relationship between two people that provides tax and legal advantages for their union. [In layman’s speak: you get a tax write off and someone that can’t be forced to snitch on you in court]
I’m not against marriage, relationships or being in LOVE for that matter. Continue Reading…
The NYPost posted the following blind item the other day:
Which hip-hop artist drove up to his agent’s office in a $200,000 car, wearing a $50,000 wristwatch, to beg for money because he’s “dead broke” and needed $5,000 for child support?
While most would have never in a million years guessed Bow Wow, his mom, Tereasa Caldwell managed to link his name to the deadbeat dad post.
Just hours after the blind item hit the net, Caldwell rushed to the tweets in defense of her son, who just weeks ago publicly acknowledged paternity of his daughter, Shai.

Sexy actor Idris Elba loves reaching out to fans via the social networking site twitter…. so much so, that he often sends out photos of himself like the one above, taken via his cell phone.
If you’re also on the social network, you may be aware of a trend called #TAD (which stands for Twitter After Dark).
The trend is strictly for adults and if you happen to be up during the wee hours in the morning, you may be shocked to discover all kinds of freaky sneaky-ness going on online.
Well last night, Idris got in on all the late night fun and to the delight of his followers, sent out a steamy pic of himself followed by this revelation…
Could Idris’ steamy photo been meant for someone other than his 240,000+ fans/followers? Hmmmm… who knows.
