Rapper/Singer/Vocal Judge Nicki Minaj is preparing to entertain the masses in her new gig as judge on the new season of Fox’s American Idol.

I’m not one to gossip, so you didn’t hear this from me…. but word on the curb is that one of the Atlanta Housewives has gotten her a ring!
This particular “housewife” has never been married, however she has been in several long-term relationships and has even been engaged a time or two before.
