Legendary producer and originator of “New Jack Swing”, Teddy Riley has issued an official statement in an attempt to set the record straight about the alleged beating of his 18 year old daughter.
As posted earlier, Riley’s adult daughter obtained a restraining order against him, claiming the singer beat her and her sister and threatened to hurt them with a guitar from the video game Rock Band earlier this month and the three even proceeded to go at it online via Twitter.
In the statement, Riley denies the allegations and states that the entire situation arose because his parenting techniques allowed his kids to have “an inflated sense of entitlement and expectation.” Read full statement below: Continue Reading…
Introducing the Coles, a close-knit obese family from North Carolina, struggling through weight issues as they come together to change their lifestyle & eating habits for their health. The show premiered last night (Tues, Dec 29) but I was too busy watching Rudolph’s Happy New Year to think about it. The family appeared on The Today Show recently to discuss the show:
Each member of this North Carolina family is considered morbidly obese. The mom of the family, Tameka is 36 years old and weighs 380 pounds. She works two jobs to support the family. Her husband Norris is 41 and weighs 340 pounds. Tameka and Norris have two kids. Son Shayne, is 14 and is a hefty 308 pounds. The daughter, 16-year-old Amber no longer fits the guidelines for morbid obesity and is in fact now considered “super obese” at 348 pounds.
Word on the street is that Ciara will be running off with $2 Million dollars to perform a New Year’s eve show in the country of Kazakhstan. The singer’s management team has confirmed the news and apparently Ciara is headed that way as we speak.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering what tricks Ciara has up her sleeve for that much cash…well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Chris Brown and Usher Raymond were spotted courtside at last night’s Atlanta Hawks game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. I heard the Chris Brown was boo’d when his image came up on the JumboTron, while Usher snickered nearby.
The game was full of celebrity sightings, including Atlanta staples like Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton & Chris Tucker. While it was a hot game to see and be seen, the Hawks lost 95-84. Fortunately for them, they get to try again on tonight.
Check out a few courtside photos from last nights game:

Another “final” send off tribute to Michael Jackson has just been released. A video for the legendary singer’s graceful, posthumous single, “This Is It,” directed by filmmaker Spike Lee hit the net and is presented as a loving scrapbook of Jackson’s life.
Starting with slow-mo close-ups of his childhood home, then ballooning through his massive, worldwide fame, the video received flack for not featuring any shots of Michael’s brothers. However there’s a small section of footage of Jackson with his mother, Katherine.
Lee devoted over half of the 4-plus minute clip to footage shot since Jackson’s death. Capturing thousands of fans in mourning and awe, from footage near the Apollo Theatre and all across the world.
In classic Spike Lee fashion, the director focuses several times on a sign that says “Stop The Hatin’,” referring to the coverage of the controversies in Jackson’s life.
