Before she rose to fame from her break out role in “Precious,” Gabourey Sidibe
was a young unknown actress who had stars in her eyes when she met one of her big-screen idols.
That pedestal came crashing down though, when Sidibe’s idol gave her some hard cold advice about making it in the movie industry, basically telling her to quit because she didn’t have the ‘look’!
Sidebe appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live a few days ago and when she hit the hot seat for host Andy Cohen’s “Plead the 5th” game, she made the startling revelation about the startling bit of advice given to her by a fellow actress she looked up to.
Find out who had the audacity to tell someone to give up their dreams in the video below… Continue Reading…
Brian McKnight admits that he was “crazy” for pu**y when he wrote that freaky sneaky coochie song the other day.
[READ: Brian McKnight Reveals Freaky Adult Tune Via Twitter – VIDEO]
McKnight recently revealed that he only wrote the song after going a lil stir crazy at home recovering from surgery the past few weeks, stating:
“I’ve been home for a month … I’ve got this boot on my foot. I’m like a month away from Achilles tendon surgery, so I’ve been stuck in the house.”
Brian added, the song “isn’t for everyone. It’s a parody. I’m having fun because basically I have nothing else else to do.”
The song, entitled “If You’re Ready To Learn” is also fast becoming the hottest thing on and off-line these days.
Fellow crooner Tank has called him out for being “disrespectful” to his fans by releasing the tune, while the adult industry is salivating just THINKING about the money they can make from the connection.

I bet you’ll never guess what former Badboy/ Diddy side
kick Mason Betha
and 90’s rap icon Montel Jordan
have in common with Real Housewives of Atlanta background character/ex-con Marlo Hampton…
Lets’ see… besides the fact that Ma$e was arrested for picking up a tranny in Atlanta that time (and no, the Tranny wasn’t Marlo!), all 3 live in ATL… but that ain’t it.
Montel quit music to become an Atlanta pastor and Ma$e and his wife Twyla had their own Atlanta congregation online and off.
While both Ma$e and Montel have been heavily involved in spreading the gospel of our heavenly father to their respective churches, but I doubt that
Martavious Marlo has ever stepped foot in a pulpit.
Montel and Ma$e also hit the height of their popularity as rappers back in the 90’s, but I don’t think that
Marko Marlo ever spit a verse on wax.
And if you’re thinking it’s because all of their names start with “M”… well think again!

I attended Kandi Burruss’
weekly late night talk show Kandi Koated Nights this week and her special guest was Tyra Sanchez, the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Kandi, Tyra, DJ AOne, Nikki Nicole as well as comedians Yohancé Collins and Chris Jones touched on the topic “Girlfriend or Friend Wit Benefits? Who’s Better Off?”
Interestingly enough Tyra revealed that he/she dates both men and women and that he/she prefers a ‘friend with benefits’ relationship at the moment since he/she has a crush on someone that’s in the industry and Tyra has vowed to save him/her-self until he/she meets them.
Just FYI… Kandi also spilled a bunch of The Real Housewives of Atlanta like taping starts soon and the newbies have been selected (however she wouldn’t reveal WHO they are).
