It’s been at least 10 years since Dru Hill‘s last album dropped but the group has now reunited and has a new reality show in the works that will follow them as they attempt a comeback. Leading the pack is R&B legend and Atlanta resident Keith Sweat who has assumed the role of producer of the show documenting their efforts entitled “Platinum House.” Last night, the premiere party for Platinum House, held at Aquanox, and was attended by Vawn, Jazze Pha, Drumma Boy, Frankie, Sheree Whitfield and more. Even that lil boy from Tyler Perry’s House of Pain was there…at the club…partying with the grown folks…but I digress.
Check out a few flix as well as some behind the scenes video below:
Flashback from the past! Dru Hill performs…
Sheree was doin it! I don’t care what y’all say about her…she’ll always be my 2nd favorite housewife!
Lisa Wu-Hartwell, NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield left their comfy confines of North Atlanta to make a trip over to the Eastside last weekend. The three Real Housewives of Atlanta paid a visit to Dekalb County’s South Dekalb Mall for a special panel discussion with host/moderator V-103’s Ryan Cameron.
The housewives event was orignally scheduled for 4:00pm Saturday but got a late start because all of the housewives had not arrived. By about 4:30pm Ryan finally took the stage and blamed Sheree as the late culprit. A crowd of about 200 fans cheered and screamed their names as they finally got started. Questions were prepared in advance, but the biggest revelation came when the trio announced that Season Two would finally begin filming on Monday (today).
Check out a few of the questions/answers addressed on the panel below: Continue Reading…
Watching the episode of Girlfriends where Joan Clayton breaks down because her fiance’ has been sent to war made me feel a little guilty. I thought I didn’t know any fighting men or women, couldn’t relate to what it must be like to wait and hope that your loved one returns intact.
Not too long ago, a very good friend I’d lost track of for a decade found his way back to me – from Kuwait. He’s a fellow ATLien who is far far away from home. Below is an edited transcript of his Old School Atlanta Memories (O.S.A.M.) interview:
This ya boy, Dino reppin Campbellton and Fairburn. I’m now in the Air Force in North Dakota. Now onto my O.S.A.M.:
I remember when Freaknik was on full blast and we went to Piedmont Park. Dungeon Family and Southern Style DJs would serenade Peachtree Road. One night, me and my sisters and their cheerleader friends went to Freaknik (they were seniors in high school). I remember when people would start dancing on top of their cars and shit. It use to be girls wearing the littlest clothes and I remember rubbing one girl’s ass for a minute and she told my sister, Kortney, to look at me and my sister beat her ass. That was the day I knew I liked an accentuated pelvis region on a woman! It was the best of times especially because I keep up wit them and we do less things together, NOW THAT I AM 22! That’s why I can remember that episode.
“Any hi”, That’s my piece.
Smooches and dueces
Dayum Dino! I’m countin on my fingers and it seems like you had to be somewhere around 6 years old when all that took place. WTH?!? 22?!? You’re kidding right…
School Daze brings back mad memories! Spike Lee once explained that Dap’s point of waking up the entire college was “to encourage the student body to wake up and take notice to what was going on around them. Things were getting out of control and it needed to stop. The calm and conclusive “WAKE UP” to the audience meant “wake up from all the bullsh*t we bring on ourselves and that we perpetuate in our community and neighborhoods and in, most of all, society.”
