Remember that BMF Wives reality show that was gearing up for release early last year?
[Flashback: Reality Show Alert! BMF (Black Mafia Family) Wives? (PHOTOS/VIDEO)]
BMF (Black Mafia Family) was one of the longest running drug cartels in America. The “family business was ran by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother and business partner, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.
I received a call last year from Meech’s mom and sister, who coincidentally owns the rights to the “BMF” name, and they blatantly denied giving anyone permission to do business under the brand. They even spilled a bit the TEA on the “wives” who were grouping up to do the reality show, stating:
She [Welch] can say whatever she wants about her relationship with Terry [Flenory – Meech’s Brother] in California… but she CANNOT corroborate or say ANYTHING about BMF.
All these rumors about she’s a “wife”… she’s a “first lady”… this and that… no. She’s not.

I’m not sure what transpired between January 2012 and now but according to a press release I received recently, “BMF Wives” are apparently planning on moving forward (against the Flenory family’s wishes)!

The streets have been buzzing that Parks, who happens to be a whole lotta months pregnant with her 2nd child, has been granted a new reality show which will reportedly focus on her legal career.

I’ve heard quite a few different scenarios about what the show will actually entail, but all roads lead to Parks’ legal expertise.

Did you catch First Lady Michelle Obama
on the 2013 Academy Awards last night?
The FLOTUS wasn’t actually in Hollywood but she made a historic surprise appearance during this year’s Oscars.
One of the most powerful women in the country stepped into the spotlight to eloquently announce Oscar’s biggest prize — the award for best picture.
Actor Jack Nicholson walked onstage at the end of the evening right before the best picture pronouncement and joked about how the academy tradition is for the award to be announced by a solo presenter. Nicholson stunned the crowd when he announced, “It’s my pleasure to introduce live from the White House, the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.”
Michelle Obama appeared via live satellite feed on a huge screen above Nicholson wearing a shiny gray gown and backed by several people dressed in formal military uniform.
