The tour begins Nov. 4th, when the pair sings their hearts out to fans in Richmond, Virginia.
Eric Benet will also be a part of the tour. No official announcements have been made, but his participation is scheduled to begin in January.
The timing coincides with the release of Burruss’ sophomore solo CD, ‘Kandi Koated,’ which is scheduled to hit shelves on Nov. 23, just prior to the conclusion of third season of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.
Fantasia’s most recent album, “Back to Me,” entered Billboard’s Top 200 chart at No. 2, selling more than 117,000 units.
The dude smiling brightly in the above mugshot (yep… that’s a mugshot and not a yearbook picture!) is none other than singer/songwriter Bruno Mars, most notably known for his silky verse on B.o.B.’s “Nothing On You”.
Mars (born Peter Gene Hernandez), 23, was arrested in Las Vegas after police received a narcotics call from someone at the Hard Rock Hotel. According to reports, a bathroom attendant approached a security officer at the facility to say that there was a man in a bathroom stall who might be using drugs, telling the guard that a male in the bathroom was “taking a really long time.”
It was soon revealed that the hitmaker was in possession of 2.6 grams of cocaine, discovered on his person after security guards confronted him.
Once law enforcement officers made their move, cops say they asked Bruno to “give over whatever narcotics he had.” According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Bruno then “pulled out a white powder substance, which was consistent with cocaine, from his left-front jeans pocket.”
Cops say Bruno “admitted he did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before.” <~ Yeah right.
Mars was released from custody at 7:45 a.m. Sunday morning and has been ordered to return to court for his arraignment November 18.
At least he’s smiling. I swear he looks like he’s thinking “mama I made it” in that shot. SMH…
Well, word on the curb is that that’s more fiction than fact. In fact, NeNe only taped the ONE segment for the show and it wasn’t even a paid gig!
My sources say it was a one-time thing. A “job” totally made for television and hype. I was told that NeNe knew it all along and wanted everyone to think she was well on her way to getting her own show.
I’ve even heard that the talk of marriage problems between she and Greg were all lies manufatured from the beginning just the show. Case in point, Lisa Wu-Hartwell departed the show because she would NOT pretend to have issues with her fine “A”zz hubby, Ed Hartwell.
Last Saturday, a select group of the city’s most notable residents joined special celebrity guest hosts Monica and Ne-Yo for test drives of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne during the luxury auto-manufacturer’s “Dance at Dusk” event.
Mo, who just completed the final show of the Passion Pain & Pleasure Tour with Trey Songz, says she’s happy to be home and is looking forward to spending time with her boys. She’s working on her next album, and says the title will also coincide with the next season of her BET reality show.
Detlev Von Platen, President/CEO of Porsche honored Monica & Ne-Yo, fellow Porsche owners, with a special gift of appreciation.
