There was a whole lotta side-eyein’ going on Sunday night as Nelly arrived at The Gold Room Sunday night with his new boo, Tae Heckard in tow (February 24, 2013).
For the record, Ashanti held on as long as she could (about 10+ years to be exact). The on again/off again couple even celebrated Shanti’s birthday in Atlanta last October as Nelly threw her a birthday dinner joined by BFF T.I. and Tiny.
But clearly, things weren’t meant to be and Tae (real name LaShontae) Heckerd is up next on Nelly’s ‘to do’ list.

The SoSo Def 20th Anniversary concert
hit Atlanta over the weekend and people are still talking about the controversy surrounding Xscape
As you know, the 90’s girl group once consisted of sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, as well as Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Harris but things changed after a bit of internal disagreements within the group.
Kandi, who has gone on to earn awards with her songwriting expertise and is now a real “housewife” of Atlanta, explained a while back that she’s NEVER revisiting her past and has pretty much said that her days with Xscape are gone.

Tiny, on the other hand is rumored to be on the fence about the situation. I’ve heard that she would reunite with the group only if Kandi would… (and we already know that ain’t happ’nan).

Whatever the case, life goes on and it certainly moved on without Kandi and Tiny this weekend as LaTocha and Tamika hit the stage as a Xscape one mo’ gin… but this time as a duo.

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)!

Word on the curb is that Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will be getting her own show soon!
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.
[Sidebar: Kenya Moore may have taken to Amazon to battle Phaedra & Apollo's Donkey Booty workout videos with her own line of booty specific dvd's, but she can't copy Phaedra's law degree without heading back to college!]
I’ve heard quite a few different scenarios about what the show will actually entail, but all roads lead to Parks’ legal expertise.

After the So So Def concert ended with the likes of Lil Jon, Usher Raymond, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Monica and Mariah Carey, it was a all VIP celebration at Atlanta’s Compound night club.
The only person missing was T.I…. but then again maybe the shade Tip threw during ASCAP’s Living Legends Dinner put a spark up under JD’s “A”zz to get this whole anniversary thing poppin (just a thought).

‘s SoSo Def 20th Anniversary Concert was held at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre last Saturday, February 23, 2013 and the City is still talking about it.
If you following me on Instagram and/or Twitter you may have noticed my live accounting of the festivities. The show was also shown live on ASX-TV and quickly became a trending topic on social networks as Jermaine pulled out all the stops to celebrate his 20 years of musical influence on Atlanta and beyond.

While the event proved to be successful, it wasn’t without it’s share of controversy. I’ve been told there was a lot going on backstage and apparently many others heard the stories as well.
That being said… check out performance video from the event below PLUS an email I received yesterday from an ‘A-town fan’ (who asked to remain nameless) about their personal accounting of the So So Def 20th Anniversary concert and the drama that may (or may not) have occurred… Continue Reading…
