Actress AJ Johnson and Keshia Knight-Pulliam strike a pose at the season opener for ATLLive on the park (April 14, 2015).
The monthly music showcase featured the musical talent of Atlanta transplants Rock City (the production team behind hits for Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Usher) and Australian singer Olivia Escuyos for their 2015 kick off.

Being Mary Jane has ended it’s 2nd season with an explosive two-part season finale. I chose not to blawg about the show this season because frankly, I was disappointed in the initial storyline.
Last season, our coveted Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) survived heartbreak after a lengthy affair with a married man (Andre – Omari Hardwick) who left the show to pursue a more lucrative deal in ‘Power.’ And in my opinion, writers of BMJ seemed at a loss on how to proceed without Hardwick’s presence.

While the 2nd season started off slowly, it finally picked up a bit but I still couldn’t get past the fact that Mary Jane seemed suddenly obsessed with her ex, David Paulk (Stephen Bishop) and his new relationship with his baby mama. Blah Blah Blah… enter Mary Jane playing the side-chick (again) as her ex decides he really loves her but is in a ‘situation’ where his fiancè is pregnant. *sigh* I just couldn’t.
During the 2-part season 2 finale, Mary Jane experiences a breakup (Sheldon (Gary Dourdan) didn’t quite work out), a makeup (Mary Jane and Kara (Lisa Videl) mend fences for the greater good of her career), a tempting primetime job offer and a shocking revelations (MJ discovers her BFF has been lusting after David for years), while finally ending with with a bang… literally!

Newsflash! Hollywood Divas reality show will have a brand new ‘diva’ on deck for their 2nd season… Ms. Vivica A. Fox!
You may have heard by now that Carlos King, the man behind the drama on BravoTV’s ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has decided to leave the popular show to focus on his production partnership with Todd Tucker (and if you haven’t heard… now you know.)

sat down with the Angela Ye & DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club earlier this morning (April 14, 2015).
Charlamagne happened to be M.I.A., which CiCi claims is because he is afraid of her.
[Sidebar: I’m not sure what that means but, I would’ve personally liked to have seen what Charlamagne had on stand-by to roast Ciara, but I guess God was looking out for the single mom this time.]
Dj Envy definitely took a que from Charlagmagne’s play book and got straight to the point by inquiring about Ciara’s failed’ relationship with Future. She basically said it just ended. So I guess we will ignore that he was with baby momma Brittany traveling all over the world recently.
Ciara also addressed Jermaine Dupri’s assessment that her latest single, ‘I Bet’ is a complete rip off of Usher’s ‘U Got it Bad’ (click HERE if you missed that).

Tamika Fuller, the mother of Ludacris‘ ‘on break baby,’ has probably had the worst year ever and we’re only a few months in.
Fuller documented her feelings in a long essay posted online recently after losing custody of her 16-month old daughter, Cai Bridges, stating:
Every day that passes without my daughter feels like eternity. My side has not been shared up to this point and rumors that I was a bad mother or receiving $7k/month child support or asking for $15k were distressing me; none of which are factual.

A judge denied Fuller’s motion for a new trial in her custody case just last week (click HERE if you missed that). Now the embattled baby mama is seeking the public’s support to fund her continuing legal battle with the creation of a new GoFundMe account to get her baby back.
