I caught up with Keyshia Cole’s bio-mom Frankie Lons on the red carpet of the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards this past weekend. She was sporting a new wig, a new front grill and a new attitude as she dished the dirt on her attraction to younger men. Anyone who follows Keyshia Cole or the “Frankie & Neffe Show” is quite aware of Frankie’s young boy magnetism. Shoot… she pulls em quicker than Kim Zolciak used to pull Big Poppa’s AmEx Black card. Anyway, Frankie was quite candid in her response to my question of “How do you always keep a young sexy man on your shoulder?” In fact, she was quite profound in her explanation:
“I’m not a ‘cougar’… I’m just a damsel in distress. Really, actually men my age I can’t deal with em, cause they make me feel old. And Ladies I need to give you some game. If you get a younger man, then he’ll make you feel young. You won’t be bent over and walking slow.”
Just moments after my brief interview with Frankie, she stormed off of the red carpet. If you follow me on TWITTER, you were the first to find out that a fellow blogger asked her a question that suddenly brought tears to her eyes: Continue Reading…
Not only is funny man Mike Epps the host of this year’s BET Hit Hop Awards, he’s also a rapper with a hot new song of his own. Mike recently filmed the video for “Ain’t Chu You” which features Young Dro, Nitti & Dorrough and the song is actually not bad. Mike explained recently that the idea for the song came to mind when he was touring in a small town and someone came up to him and asked “Ain’t Chu You?”…he wrote a few funny lyrics, hit up Nitti for a hot beat and the rest is history.
Dorrough, Nitti, Dro & Epps

I guess it’s that time of year again…another rapper jailed for stupidity. Soulja Boy aka Deandre Cortez Way was arrested in Henry County Wednesday night after he ran from Henry County police. During the filming of a video shoot at a house in McDonough, police say that Soulja Boy took off running as an officer walked up to the house and was detained when he came back moments later.
An officer headed out to a house in McDonough around 9 p.m. after being told a group of people were hanging out there. The officer stated that the house was dark and looked abandoned and witnessed three women walking around the back of the home. The women refused to stop after the officer confronted them and as he followed them around the back he noticed a larger group of around 40 people.
When they spotted the officer, half of the group took off, leaving several cars behind, Continue Reading…
You know it’s party time if Diddy’s in town! The Bad Boy was spotted poppin bottles with Young Jeezy last night at The Compound for one of the million parties surrounding the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards which film in Atlanta this weekend. CTE, Bad Boy and AG Entertainment all on one bill? You already know it was off the chain. A few spotted at the compound were Young Buck, Lil Boosie, Slim Thug, Devyne Stephens, Kenny Burns and BET’s Stephen Hill. I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume there were females there too….
In case you missed it, check out T.I. on VH1’s Behind the Music which aired last night. Tip talks about why he felt the need to stockpile weapons and even shows a bit of remorse for his actions. This is one of the best Behind the Music’s yet… (and yes I can admit I’m biased). Reliving all of Tip’s trials and tribulations via this episode really hit home to me and I’m almost positive I’m not the only ATLien who feels this way.
In the most recent epispode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak sported a brand new “engagement” ring from her married boyfriend. As everyone silently giggled at the absurdity of Kim actually believing she was gonna marry a married man, she beamed with joy and bounced around as if it was all good. Now, since I don’t see Kim as being the smartest bird in the bunch, I can only assume that either Big Poppa’s wife got at Kim or her sugar daddy finally came to his senses. Whatever the case, Kim just revealed to Essence Magazine that the *cough* engagement is off and she now has a new boo:
I am not engaged to Big Papa! I got a commitment ring last year and so when I got this new ring, I was led to believe that his divorce was final. Who gives someone a massive rock and makes this commitment if he wasn’t serious? I found out that I was still on the same merry-go-round. If there is one thing I have discovered about myself from doing this show it is that I’m just far too trusting. I’m actually dating someone new and I’m extremely happy. He’s my age, from California and cute as a button. I gave Papa almost four years of my life, so now I’m just trying to move on.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from that experience?
I need to learn not to take everything at face value. I believe everything that people tell me. I wanted to believe that he was going through the steps for us to be together. I’m not a home wrecker because my husband did it to me. I would never intentionally do that to someone. I was planning my future and so excited because he was the love of my life. But as time went on, I started to wonder, why is this taking so long? I realized that I needed to really sit down and figure this out.
