V-103’s Ryan Cameron poses with Fonzworth Bentley & Keith Sweat during his Ol Skool Step Show. FreddyO sent over a few pics and I guess I’ll have to use em since today just happens to be Flashback Friday….plus I’d never deny you the pleasure of seeing Nokio from Dru Hill’s fresh new doo.

Fonzworth Bentley & Pastor Troy shake hands and share memories..
Happy Flashback Friday people! DJ Nabs toured the world for years with Kris Kross and has several old school videos over on his YouTube channel. Check out Kris Kross, Jermaine Dupri and DJ Nabs appearing on the Arsenio Hall Show…Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly still had all his hair and Jermaine did too.
Also here’s the link to the actual interview where someone’s BEEPER when off onstage during the show and Arsenio calls em out. Hell naw! What year was this? Dayum I feel old.
Quick Question: Who knew Tameka “Tiny” Cottle was such a great actress?!? Hell who even knew she was in a move? Check out this old footage of T.I.’s fiance in some straight to video type flick entitled “Black Balled” where she plays some dude’s baby mama….a real stretch for her. womp womp.
Fast Forward to the 3:08 mark:
That’s old school actor Stoney ‘Jheri Curl’ Jackson starring as the embattled black man (you might also remember him from Michael Jackson’s Beat It video). Is it me or does that other chick look amazingly like Atlanta Housewife Lisa Wu-Hartwell? Anywhoo…I have no idea where this movie came from so don’t even ask but I really don’t think you missed any Oscar worthy performances.
Thanks to NeNe from Tiny’s Fan Site for bringing Tiny’s acting talents to my attention.
Sheree Whitfield sat down recently to chop it up about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She took a moment to speak about her clothing line (She by Sheree) as well as dropped a few hints about who the NEW housewife will be this season. Sheree also addressed the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation stating that everyone needs to just stay out of it and surprisingly revealed that she’s also been a victim of domestic violence in the past.
Check out the video of my 2nd favorite housewife below:
An Atlanta judge has ordered T.I. to increase the child support payments received by the mother of his two sons, LaShon Dixon. Tip had originally been paying about $3,000 per month to support his two sons, ages 7 and 9 but Dixon sought to increase those payments when she felt that her sons needed “to be equal” in both households (her words…peep the video), asking the court to raise the payments to $10,000 per month. Yesterday the judge ordered T.I. to increase his payments to $5,000 per month:
T.I., who was originally ordered to pay for the boys to attend private school, is no longer required to make that payment. The judge, Bensonetta Tipton Lane, also ordered the performer to pay half of the children’s extracurricular activities and all their medical expenses.
The judge ordered joint custody of the boys to continue, with Dixon granted primary physical custody. He’ll have visitation every other weekend.
Dixon’s attorney, Randy Kessler, says the woman is “very grateful” for the judge’s decision and called it “a complete victory.” (Source)
