Adorable newlyweds Antonia ‘Toya” Carter Wright and Mickey “Memphitz” Wright have only been married a few weeks (click HERE to view wedding photos), but they’ve already secured their first endorsement deal as a couple!
Ampro Industries, Inc., the maker of Ampro Pro Styl, America’s #1 Gel, and the new Shine ‘n Jam Conditioning Gel announced in a press release dated August 1, 2011, that the two have inked a deal to represent the Memphis, TN based company in a global advertising campaign.
[Sidebar: Now THAT’s the way a successful couple rolls! The couple that earns together learns together… (I just made that up, but you know what I mean.)]
And Toya already takes her role VERY seriously…

Usher Raymond got the chance to do what millionaires everywhere dream of… he rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning (August 1, 2011).
Ursh was the honored guest of MTV and he joined MTV Networks Music/Films/Logo Group President Van Toffler and president of MTV Stephen Friedman to ring the bell as a part of MTV’s 30th Birthday celebration.

When news of Bishop Eddie Long’s 5th accuser hit the streets last week (click HERE if you missed it), I couldn’t help but wonder how members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church felt about the new scandalous developments.
Fox-5 was on it again, catching church members as they left bible study last Wednesday evening, and well… it appears they’re all still drinking Long’s Kool-aid…
“Bishop Long is a man of god,” said one supporter. “People are trying to tear him down in all kinds of ways. I don’t believe the first one, and I don’t believe him now.”
When asked if she heard about the fifth accuser, the woman replied, “Yes. I think that’s just a scam to bring him down. He’s bringing the word out so strong right now. They (are) just trying to bring him down.”
One male parishioner said the accusations don’t matter to him at all:
“That doesn’t matter to me. I know who he is and it’s just talk. He’s a good spiritual dad. So that’s all I can say.”
Watch video of Long’s supportive parishioners speaking on his behalf… Continue Reading…
Shawty Lo balled outta control in NYC recently while the cameras rolled in Part 4 of ‘Lo’s Life,’ his online web series.
Lo “Foolish” -ly dropped a ton of his G-Unit dough on several pairs of what he described as “Red Bottoms” (aka Christian Louboutin Shoes) and brags about his new footwork on film.
He displays each pair one by one for your viewing pleasure, while his D4L crew drools over his purchases. Lo even supplys a copy of his signed receipt as proof that he really spent the dough… *sigh*
[Sidebar: Maybe Basketball “Wife” Royce Reed shoulda taken Lo up on his offer to be his boo. Looks like she missed out on a chance to upgrade her wardrobe… ]

I told y’all my spidey senses were tingling yesterday when that Soulja Boy claimed to have made that $55 Million Dollar Birthday Purchase.
[READ: Soulja Boy’s Net Worth = $25 Million But He Spent $55 Milli on a Jet?]
I got even more skeptical when I noticed that SoujaBoy was “retweeting” (i.e. “reposting other tweets” for all you non-tweeters) all the press he was getting surrounded the story:
TMZ fell for the story after Soulja Boy, a member of his management team named Shai Storm and Soulja’s assistant all confirmed that it was true… well now a rep for the rapper has spilled called it all a LIE!

I was perusing the net a while back and ran across these AWESOME pictures of Phaedra Parks from her days as a college student back in the 90’s (my how times have changed!).
I wasn’t gonna use them, but figured since Phaedra’s out of the country filming RHOA, now is my chance to post them without hearing her mouth!
The photo above (right) was taken when Parks was just a mere Freshman, all smiles and ready to take on the world! Now 20+ years later… she still has that same smile and youthful glow!
Way before Phaedra became Atlanta’s favorite entertainment attorney, new mom, and sexy star of The Real housewives of Atlanta, she was a young, attractive and highly intelligent undergrad at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia.
My friends over at Starcasm tracked down her Wesleyan yearbooks (1990-1993) and shared all of Phaedra’s college pics online.
Check out Phaedra in her Sophomore, Junior & Senior years as we flashback to 90’s college fashion and back…. Continue Reading…
