As shocking as it may seem, “As The HOOD Turns”
aka Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta
is proving to be the nation’s guilty pleasure.
The AJC reports that the show is a MONSTER hit for VH1, with last week’s episode accumulating over 3.5 million viewers.

While there hasn’t been an “official” announcement, it’s obvious that there WILL be a season 2 negotiated for the top rated show and word on the curb is that there will also be a few cast changes the next go round.
Yeah… I said it. Here’s the deal… Continue Reading…
Sean “Jay-Z” Carter
teams up with his wifey in a cute new commercial (sort of).
Jay-Z recently invested in Duracell and signed up as the spokesperson for Duracell Powermat, which will allow cell phone users to charge their phone wirelessly through “wireless power hot spots”.
Gone are the days we curse our iPhone batteries for turning red as soon as we walk out the door!
The Duracell Powermat commercial features a New Yorker running around Manhattan without ever having to worry about his phone’s battery life.
As “Run This Town” plays in the background, he bumps into Jay-z at a nightclub, just as he receives a phone call from someone listed as “B”.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume it was Beyonce calling, but I’ve been wrong before.
Watch the cute new spot below… Continue Reading…

‘s Channel Orange is on constant rotation on my personal “A”pod right now but what’s sad is that many only know about the drama surrounding the album, and not the music itself.
Ocean released his album a week early on iTunes after one of the songs preveiwed sparked rumors about his sexuality, causing him to “out” himself.

I’m sure you all have stayed up nights wondering what the legendary Sheree Whitfield (formerly of the Real Housewives of Atlanta) has been doing with all her newfound free time.

shared the photo above of her weave-less tresses yesterday (July 24, 2012).
I noticed her photo as I was sitting in the chair taking on my own “weave-free” challenge.
As a certified member of the weave queen club, I’ve always felt that the versatility of fake hair far exceeds the time and effort it takes to take care of my own. But that’s just me.
Then again… do y’all emember the F*ck Natural Hair chick I posted last year?

While her sentiments are valid, there comes a time when it’s 105 degrees outside to just let it go.
So while I’m sure there are many other (including Beyonce), who have opted to shed the weaves & wigs because of the weather), I’m calling this Weave Free Wednesday (cause we never know how many inches of brazilian hair tomorrow may bring).
