An ex-cheerleader turnt blogger by the name of Brittney Cason hit the news this week after she uncovered what could be a large human trafficking scam centered around the Sochi Olympics.
Cason was contacted last September through her website by a talent agent, who claimed he was recruiting for media coverage of the Winter Olympics.
For the record, many bloggers are contacted daily by companies and organizations seeking coverage and/or free promo and Cason admits that while she was originally skeptical of the opportunity, she did her due diligence, researched the talent agent, and decided to move forward.
Before even meeting with him about it, I did my research. He had a website displaying his credentials and his Twitter validated his connection with the industry, including interactions with celebrities and other professionals, and someone I worked with even validated his work history.
Meanwhile, he was very professional and extremely knowledgeable in conversation. He seemed as legitimate as anyone I’ve ever worked with.
But wait… a few weeks before heading to Russia, Cason decided to dig deeper and her decision to do so may have actually saved her life!

Another day, another catty blowg post from one of the ‘cast’ members of The Real Housewives of Atlanta
This time though, the writer isn’t actually a ‘houseife’ but convict turnt RHOA background character turnt ‘frienemy’ Marlo Hampton.
[READ: Nene Leakes Shades Kandi & Mama Joyce + Says Marlo & Kenya are 'Perfect Match']
In a blawg entitled, ‘Chinese Proverb: Beware of people throwing shade while wearing bad toupees!’ Hampton addresses her former friend, Nene Leakes, who unceremoniously cut Marlo from her ‘real life’e clique last Summer when she found out that Hampton was a backstabber (click HERE if you missed that).
Now that Marlo has switched teams, it seems the former ‘friends’ are holding no punches and going towards the jugular. Being that Mugshot Marlo has a violent history that includes sharp objects, it’s probably a smart decision for Nene to keep her distance.
Whatever the case, the convicted slasher has officially joined forces with KooKoo Kenya and now all bets are off.
