Actress/Author/Ex- Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Lisa Wu put her good looks to work as she played host to the unveiling & launch of the Chopard luxury jeweled eyewear collection last night (Juy 25, 2013).
Lisa, who recently starred in the local stage play “Stripped” (click HERE if you missed that), chopped off her long locks shortly after her acting gig ended and has been rocking a trendy spiked cropped doo ever since.
In hosting the launch party for the luxury eyewear, Wu modeled the expensive frames all night long and her short doo paired with her ‘model chick’ exterior proved the perfect combination to pitch the stylish frames.
RHOA’s Porsha Stewart, R&B singer Bobby V., Mariah Huq (Married to Medicine), Sharlinda Rowe-Parker & Sabrina Row (Big Rich Atlanta) and more all came to support the former ‘housewife’ on her new spokesmodeling endeavor.

VIDEO: TLC Press Conference 2013 – Reintroducing themselves
There’s a whole generation that don’t know who we are…
Even if we had been out every year with an album, we’d still have to reinvent yourself. So even if we were out and it had been 10 years, I still feel like you’d still need to reintroduce yourself and up your game.
And speaking of re-introductions, TLC announced that rapper Lil Mama would be joining them on stage in place of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes.

I’d just like to take a moment to express how grateful and blessed I am to have such wonderful readers of StraightFromTheA!
Y’all give it ‘straight’ with no chaser and lately have been sending in some very entertaining and informative emails.
Just A few days ago, one of you spilled tea about Dexter King’s new wife’s old job and today, I ran across an email from a Tyler Perry fan who feels he’s not being honest about his relationship status.
Apparently Gelila Bekele, the model chick that’s been spotted on Tyler’s arm on many occasions (and the one that sparked those engagement rumors a while back), actually has a boyfriend she’s been dating for several years.

Kandi Burruss and friends hosted ‘Kandi Koated Nights’ with special guests, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast members Kirk Frost, Benzino and Mimi Faust (July 24 2013).
The evening’s topic was “Monogamy, Not Me” and Kirk took the opportunity to address his philandering antics partying poolside with Benzino during season 2 of LHHATL.
According to the press release:
Kirk claims he didn’t cheat because Mary Jane kissed him and he did not kiss her. Also he claims the girls on his lap in the hot tub is no different than getting a lapdance at the strip club.
He did say he has regrets because although he was doing everything to piss Rasheeda off on purpose and to get her to pay attention to him what he did’t realize is not much he was embarrassing her/Rasheeda and he didn’t think about how terrible of a person he would look when the scenes played out after editing.
