Jermaine Jackson, 52, has been hit with a lawsuit, alleging he has failed to pay more than $35,000 in child support payments. Jackson’s ex, Alejandra Jackson filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court claiming Jermaine owes nearly $35,550 for the upkeep for their two children, Jermajesty and Jaffar. Alejandra states her ex-husband’s mother Katherine has had to help her out financially and has even given her “gift cards ranging between $300 and $400 to purchase groceries for thier children. Alejandra also accuses Jermaine of lying to the court when he claimed he only made $35,000 in 2008.
What’s crazy about this entire scenario is that Jermaine’s ex-wife was also once involved with his little brother Randy and in addition to Jermaine’s two sons, Alejandra has two teenage children from her previous relationship with Randy — Genevieve, 17, and Randy Jr., 14 and Jermaine has six other children from previous relationships.
On a document included in the filing, Alejandra Jackson indicates that, since August, she has been making only $15 Continue Reading…

Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta won her first award ever last week during the 2009 Fox Really Awards. Kim received the “Fashionista” award for her choice of clothing that is 4 sizes too small hot stylish couture worn regularly on the hit reality series. Kim graciously accepted the award, which was given during red carpet arrivals and promptly reminded everyone that she and Big Poppa are officially over by flaunting her “engagement” ring worn on the wrong hand:
I honestly think Kim is just saving face after finally being dumped by that married man. Especially since he’s packing up his wife and kids and selling his palatial Georgia mansion: Continue Reading…
You may remember Kim Kearney as the loud mouthed contestant who considered herself a hybrid of Puffy & Oprah (PoPrah) on the first season of VH1’s “I Want To Work For Diddy.” Not long after her elimination from the show, I revealed a video montage of Poprah’s thin moments
on the site.
In addition to Kim hosting a short-lived talk show, she was also an aspiring recording artist in the 90’s who performed under the moniker “Tempest.” Fortunately for us…that moment was captured in time with the emergence of music videos. I dunno if “Tempest” ever made it to MTV but her videos were definitely worthy of a shot.
Check out two vintage music videos from Kim/Poprah/Tempest below as well as a brief update on what she’s doing now: Continue Reading…
During Mike Tyson’s initial appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, he expressed a bit of remorse over an incident with fellow fighter Evander Holyfield during their 1997 heavyweight title fight, where Mike bit Evander twice, once in each ear. The incident went down as one of the most talked-about moments in boxing history and the two have never officially discussed what happened. Evander contacted Oprah and asked if the two could reunite face to face on her show. O obliged and brought Mike back within a week of his interview for a historic interview between the two former foes.
Evander is still missing a small part of his ear but says he has moved past his anger:
“It was just shocking. It wasn’t really as bad as they made it out to be. The most important thing is that things happen for a reason, but it’s how you handle it,” he says. “At that moment, I was very angry. But eventually, when it’s all over, you realize that you gain more than you lost. … The most important thing for me was to forgive, and I forgave him and I was ready to move on.”
Check out their historic reunion below: Continue Reading…

Morehouse college has revealed a new policy on campus which they say is designed to uphold “the image of a strong black man.” The new policy is creating a bit of backlash because people are saying that it is alienating gay students at the all-male historically Black college. The new policy details 11 expectations of students, including:
* no caps, do-rags and/or hoods in classrooms, the cafeteria, or other indoor venues
* no sun glasses worn in class or at formal programs
* no jeans at major programs, as well as no sagging pants on campus
* no clothing with derogatory or lewd messages either in words or pictures
* no wearing of clothing usually worn by women (dresses, tops, tunics, purses, pumps, etc.) on the Morehouse campus or at college-sponsored events.
It’s the restriction on women’s clothing that causing an uproar at the school. In a city where men in pumps carrying purses is somewhat commonplace and revered on “reality” television, Morehouse is taking a stand and seems to be attempting to give our historic city some dignity. Now…before all my gay friends pull knives Continue Reading…
