I’d like to thank the people of Big Boi’s camp for dropping me this behind the scenes video a gazillion months after the actual GQ shoot. I mean…I’m eternally grateful cause I ♥ him! Especially since I got to sneak a peak inside my boo’s closet! Boi Stop! Easter’s fast approaching and I already know Twan has a fresh pair of pastel gaters on deck…. Love it!
Shouts out to my twitter buddy KyleLucas of the band Vonnegutt who just got signed to Big Boi’s Purple Ribbon label. Watch out for them on a future “A” Pod…
T.I.’s Road to Redemption: The Reckoning aired last night and Tip sat down with MTV’s Sway for one final interview before he starts his sentence in May. Tip tells Sway that he’s over the questions about his weapons charges and arrest stating: “This is the last time…After this I’m done! Don’t ask me no more questions bout this OK? Finito!” OK…Tip! I think we get it. You don’t want to be asked anymore questions about your legal issues, right? Right.
Meanwhile, while Tip’s keeping quiet, reportedly his snitchin “A”zz bodyguard, 34 year old Corey Williams is NOT. Williams was intrumental in developing the weapons case in that he had monitored conversations with T.I. and wore a wire on the rapper during a face-to-face meeting. He also agreed to testify against his former employer as a “confidential witness” after the bust went down. After all that, Williams did not get off easily. He still received the exact same penalty as T.I. (366 days) even though their criminal records are on opposite ends of the spectrum.
Atlanta Housewife without a husband Kim Zolciak recently settled her monetary dispute with her publicist Jonathan Jaxson (pictured above). In case you forgot, here’s a summary: Jaxson filed a lawsuit against Kim, claiming that she owed him money and had breached their contract for his services. Jaxon also hijacked Kim’s blog posting an entry stating that she was basically a deadbeat. Kim, in turn, filed suit against Jaxson claiming retaliation. Blah…Blah…Blah… Still confused? Click Here to read full story….
Anyway, the two have resolved their differences and Jaxson even made one more post to her website before taking the site offline March 30th:
My former client Kim Zolciak and I have settled our differences which includes voluntarily dismissing all pending legal claims against one another. Our past grievances were due to a misunderstanding that regrettably got blown out of proportion. Going forward, I wish Ms. Zolciak the very best with respect to her acting and overall entertainment endeavors. (Source)
I hate to say it but I know most people think it anyway…so eff it! I’m just gonna say it…Kim Zolciak is the token white chick on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta and doesn’t even really hang out with the rest of the crew! While the other chicks at least pretend to hang out with each other, Kim seems to be always photographed alone or with her BFF Jodi who follows her dayum near everywhere. They were even captured recently by TMZ on their way back to Atlanta from…?? wherever. Since Sheree´and NeNe seemed to have resolved their beef, it’ll be interesting to see where Kim actually fits in this season.
Peep the video below as well as more recent photos of Kim out partying it up with Jody & the crew under the cut:
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.
Meet 47-year-old Pamela Graf, a woman who has recently been arrested in Georgia for blaming Barack Obama for the cause of her house fire. Graf, a Forsyth County resident has been charged with arson in relation to the blaze, which occurred while she was allegedly in D.C., attending the Obama’s presidential inauguration. Graf originally claimed that her home was targeted by Forsyth County racists because she was an avid Obama supporter, but after a thorough investigation, officials revealed that Graf was actually involved in destroying her own home. Graf’s boyfriend, 46-year-old Steve Strobel, also was arrested.
Graf’s home was destroyed on Jan. 18 while she was allegedly in Washington, D.C., attending the inauguration. Officials found spray-painted graffiti that included a racial slur and ruled the fire an arson.
The fire, which was heavily involved upon the fire department’s arrival, resulted in a total loss of the structure. “These charges are based on information obtained through scene investigation, interviews and search warrants,” Fire Department Chief Investigator Steve Anderson said. “I would like to commend the entire Investigations Division staff for their fine and diligent work in this case.”Anderson noted the investigation is continuing and additional charges could be forthcoming.
Both Graf and Strobel were arrested on other charges February 3. Graf’s arrest stemming from drug charges unrelated to the fire and Strobel being arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and giving false statements. Both remain in the Forsyth County Detention Center. (Source)
