Monica (pictured above with BET CEO Debra Lee), Comedianne Monique and Actor Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris”) will all be featured in BET’s upcoming lineup next season. Mo and Crews will have reality shows built around their lives, while Monique will host her own late night comedy show.
The slate of shows represents the first programming under new co-presidents Loretha Jones and Stephen Hill, who took over the position following the exit of Reginald Hudlin last year.During a sneak preview Jones and Hill said the new programming will represent a branding strategy of family values and community pride – an attempt at moving away from some of the negative African American programs the network has received criticism for in the past.
“Monica: Standing Up” will focus on the Monica’s family life and her comeback album, “Breakin’ Up With Mo’Nique” will mark the network’s first late-night talk show and “Crews Control” will focus on the actor, his wife and five kids.
If you’re an avid reader of this site, you recieved this information months ago when I sat down with Monica one on one. That’s my girl and I’m soooo happy for her! Congrats again Mo….I’ll definitely be watching!
V-103’s Morning Show producer Nina Brown appeared on Channel 2 news last night to talk about her recent experience with Craigslist. Nina apparently attempted to purchase airline tickets but was ripped off twice when she found out that the tickets were invalid upon her arrival at the airport. She subsequently had to pay way more for tickets to her destination.
Another close friend of mine had the same experience recently when she tried to purchase a buddy pass from an airline employee. All I know is, too many people have been burned by Craigslist in one way or another. I’m not saying stay away, but I am definitely saying take every precaution when planning on purchase or selling anything online…especially “A”zz. What?? Don’t act. They just caught that craigslist murderer the other day and I know some of y’all got that side-gig going…

The real Keyshia Knight-Pulliam was spotted taking in the Atlanta Hawks v. Miami Heat game Sunday evening. The Hawks spanked the Heat in a 90 to 64 win to the pleasure of all in attendance. Check out a few courtside flix below:
T.I. gettin his words right during the Hawks introduction.
Monica and her kids, Lil Rocko & Romelo attended the grand opening of a new AT&T store over the weekend. Monica took time to sign autographs and greet fans while V-103’s resident dude in a dress, Miss Sophia, kept everyone entertained with ticket give-aways and laughs. Check out a few flix below:
Rock’s got the model face on lock! Love it. 🙂

Sheree´Whitfield from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta shares her tales of partying in the “A” way before the time restrictions were put into place. When JD’s verse from “Welcome to Atlanta” really rang true ~ “The party don’t stop til 8 in the morning…” When Club 112 was in the Kroger Shopping Center on Piedmont. When Deon Sanders played for the Falcons and had a club christened by his jersey number. When Dominique Wilkins still played for the Hawks. *sigh* Memories.
Yes…there’s still plenty of places to go party long into the wee hours of the morning, but if you’re leaving club that closes at 3am and don’t know where to go…. you’re just sh*t outta luck cause most of us ain’t gonna tell ya! 😆 <~~ I kid. but not really.
Monica filled in for V-103’s Ryan Cameron last week and did a marvelous job! During one set, she and TLC member, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins chopped it up about hating “A”zz bloggers, men and relationships. The two got into a heated discussion about how Atlanta has being bombarded by groupies and ho’s and women who will still date married or attached men. Monica goes on to say:
‘It was never OK to be a sideline, now that’s a way of life….there are alot of women who will happily date/ trick off with Rocko in a heartbeat even though he has a woman and two children and a wedding about to happen. They’re OK with that. First of all the morale is a problem…but if I catch you it’s a bigger problem!”
Monica’s been gangsta with it for a while now. Ain’t nuthin changed! Don’t mess with her man cause she ain’t havin’ it! Ho-ism is runnin’ rampant in the “A” and it needs to stop. I can totally feel where Mo & T-Boz were comin from. Especially seeing how this city has changed over the years…but some responsibility still falls on the cheatin “A”zz man!
In case you forgot, Mo even wrote a song dedicated to groupie ho’s tryna steal her man. Wanna hear it? Here it go… “You’s a ho..you’s a ho! Sideline Ho!” Check out a LIVE Monica “Sideline Ho” flashback after the jump:
