‘s sister Neffeteria Pugh
and her husband (?) Soullow
are back on the scene with a new reality show
in the works.
Neffe is best known for her on air antics on Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is and its spin-off show The Frankie and Neffe Show, but in addition to her recent effort, tried her hand once before on another reality show pilot that didn’t get picked up…

It seems like it was just a few days ago that we saw Beyonce
and her controversial baby bump
flouncing around NYC in 6 inch leopard print stillettos
, but apparently that was all a part of our active imagination.
Sunday afternoon (November 13), Queen B was spotted chillin at a party at Alex Rodriguez’s home in Miami, and she’s HUGE!
Bey rocked an olive green colored floor length sundress that showed off her exponentially expanding belly bump.
She and her hubby Jay-Z are reportedly visiting the M.I.A. as his Watch the Throne tour moves through the South.

The 28 year old megastar captures Hendrix’s style game to the tee… from the badass black hat; a “Purple Haze” era Technicolor military jacket; black leather pants; and Jimi’s signature orange, black and white Fender Stratocaster.
“Jimi’s just one of my favorite artists,” says Wayne, who a few years ago decided to pick up the guitar himself. “Everything Jimi stood for, I believe in.”
As you know, Jay-Z was recently crowned “KING” by GQ, but Weezy would be quick to beg to differ!
