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:
Oh Hell Naw! Spotted at an Atlanta area elementary school ~ a kid wearing a “Freaknik 95” t-shirt. I have no words…um, yes I do… to the Parents: you are DEAD WRONG for letting your kid wear your dirt on his back! I mean…Freaknik 95 was the joint but Man-Man wasn’t even a twitch in his Dad’s crotch yet! 😕 (Link)
I couldn’t let this day go by without acknowledging Lil Man Man who wore his Freaknic 95 shirt to class last year. Y’all still wrong for that…
Monica‘s new BET reality show, “Still Standing” is underway and she recently sent over a few promo shots. She’s also live on the radio airwaves all this week filling in for V-103’s Ryan Cameron (3pm-6pm) so be sure to check her out. I caught a few minutes yesterday and Mo was killin’ em! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us today.
Philip’s Arena was jumping last night as the Swagger Like Us tour hit the “A.” Shawty Lo, Ludacris, Young Jeezy, T.I. and Shawty Lo all hit the stage for a legendary A-town performance. Plies, who was also on the bill, was reportedly a “no show” and my girl Monica was spotted backstage looking fabulous as usual, sporting a different look. Love it! Flix below:
Hood couple of the decade…Diamond (Crime Mob) & Lil Scrappy
Slim (of 112) and Shawty Lo
Ludacris showing off his DTP chain and my booooo ~ Jeezy! 🙂
Monica discusses her favorite O.S.A.M. (Old School Atlanta Memory). She fondly reminisces about winning her first talent show at the age of 11 by singing “The Greatest Love of All” at Center Stage. She had me dying when she told me that she was “in the midst of getting a ponytail…not my own” and arrived at the venue with her hair molded so that she could be on time!
Monica also spoke about how she felt the love from her hometown of the “A” and how Ryan Cameron, Kevin Wells & Dallas Austin, who were all there to support her first big day, are still in her life today.
