I’ve never wrote about The Real Housewives of Atlanta because I was trying to be impartial and give the girls a chance to shine on their own. My first impression of the show was “Hell Naw!” but now I love it and watch EVERY week. I’ve met a few of the housewives and really like them as people, so watching the show is so much more enjoyable now.
Bravo calls the show “An up-close and personal look at life in Hotlanta, The Real Housewives of Atlanta follows five glamorous Southern belles — DeShawn, Kim, Lisa, NeNe, and Sheree — as they balance motherhood, demanding careers and a fast-paced social calendar, and shows what life is like in the most exclusive areas of Atlanta” and I would have to say I agree with them. Their choice of housewives is spot on. I mean…who would want to watch some boring chick chillin in Decatur somewhere? Call it ghettofabulous, a hot mess, or anything else you like….but this show is funny azzz hell!
I’ve been getting sneak peeks of the shows and thought I’d start sharing them with you. This week, Sheree hosts an “adult sleepover” and surprises the guests with a pole dancing lesson. I’m still laughing at the image of her face down on the pole! Watch out now! Sheree may be coming soon to a Strip Club near you… Peep the clips: Continue Reading…
Sasha has been very busy promoting the CD and is mad flexible as you can see in the following promo pic:
In related news, I spotted Sasha Fierce on Access Hollywood the other day discussing cooking and kids. In the clip of her upcoming 1 hour TVOne interview with Tatyana Ali, Bey is reminded about an old Access Hollywood video where she lists the top 3 things she wants to accomplish before turning 30. This list included winning an oscar, getting married, and having children. When Tatyani runs down the list, the look on Bey’s face is priceless! To refresh her memory, they ran the old clip and afterwards Mrs. Carter laughs and replies:
“You know, I still would love to win an Oscar,” she said. “The kids, I don’t know… In three years, maybe.”
Jay-Z is hot on the campaign trail for Barack Obama. Saturday (Nov. 1st), Jay paid a visit to Virginia Union College in Richmond, Virgina where he gave an emotional speech about the importance of this year’s election. Tomorrow will mark a turning point in history. Hopefully, Obama will come out of this race on top, but it’s going to take all of our VOTES to get him there. You can’t sit this one out. VOTE!
Shakir Stewart, the 34-year-old executive vice president of Def Jam Recordings, was found about 4 p.m. Saturday in the bathroom of his house on Lindsey Drive in Marietta, said police spokeswoman Cassie Reece. Reese said Stewart shot himself with a handgun but wouldn’t say who discovered him. Stewart was prounounced dead at Kennestone Hospital.
On Sunday (November 2), his fiancée, Michelle Rivers, released a joint statement with the rest of his family.
“We would like to thank Shakir’s friends for the tremendous outpouring of love and support we have received during this difficult time,” the statement reads. “It has helped us to cope with our overwhelming grief and sadness. It is difficult to express or explain in words what led to the tragic occurrence on Saturday. Over the past several weeks, Shakir’s behavior was inconsistent with the man we all know and love. As much as we all tried to help him, Shakir was in deep pain and largely suffering in silence. Please remember Shakir for who he was … a wonderful father, partner, son and friend.” (Source)
Last night, Blog Talk Radio hosted a special online show to honor Shakir’s memory. Former college roommates, hometown buddies, and industry friends called into the show to reminisce about their friend and to share memories of “Shake.”
Industry mogul Kenny Burns, Stewart’s friend of 17-years, shared memories of his friend through his sorrow and issued a warning for those who glamorize the music industry and feel that money can buy happiness. Burns could barely hold back his emotions as he also discussed providing for the children left behind: Continue Reading…
