(my “Big Poppa” in my head) has finally spoken publicly about the health scare that had rumors of his death circulating the internet.
Rozay was hospitalized a few weeks ago after suffering two seizures within hours of each other, and explained in a recent interview that it may have been his hustlin mentality that’s to blame.
My personal mantra has always been “You sleep, we grind”…. well apparently in Ricky’s case, it was that lack of sleep that may have lead to serious health consequences.
Ross opened up on BET’s “106 & Park” yesterday, discussing, for the first time, the two seizures he suffered on that October 14th flight to Memphis.
“I felt a little wore out, but I felt that I could keep going and that’s what it was. I boarded a jet and I had ANOTHER seizure. And when I snapped out of that one, I woke up in front of a doctor, who asked me, basically, ‘when was the last time you slept 8 hours’… and I said ‘man it had to be at least 5 years’… Continue Reading…
and her hubby Gregg were spotted boo’d up last night at the Real Housewives of Atlanta
Season 4 premiere party, which was held at Bar One Lounge
in Atlanta (Peter Thomas
‘ new restaurant venture)
It’s not like this should be a surprise to anyone who reads StraightFromTheA.com on the regular. I was the one who clued you guys in on the couple’s shinanigans way back in July, when I saw them boo’d up at the Essence Festival (and yeah MediaFakeOut claimed it was their exclusive after they stole my pics and cropped out my watermark… but I digress.)
NeNe toned down her “Extra” concealer for the evening and pretended that Gregg was just an interested party-goer… chilling throughout the evening with hosts Cynthia Bailey and Carlton Morton, as well as BFF’s Diana Gowins and wannabe “housewife” Marlo Hampton.
The gangs all there! Two housewives and two
[Sidebar: I wonder why Diana won’t just bite the bullet and sign up… it’s not like her background ain’t drama filled too!]
Spotted in the crowd of spectators were Robert Townsand, RL (of next),
Cole from Martin Actor Carl Payne, and of course celebrity hairstylist Derek J stopped through in all his head-wrapped FABU-LOUS-NESS!

Comedian Kenan Thompson
, who also happens to be an Atlanta native, portrayed a fellow ATLien during last weekend’s Saturday Night Live.
Dressed in feathers, funky glasses & a shimmering cape with a bottle of ‘freaky moscato’ close by, the actor spoofed the artist known as CeeLo Green in a skit called “Gettin’ Freaky With CeeLo”…
During the “show,” Kenan (as Ceelo) offers advice to a married couple with sex issues, stating:
“Attractiveness is about confidence. It’s about attitude. There was a time when people didn’t think I was attractive.
Thompson also briefly touches on Ceelo and his “freaky fixation” with groupies, as he references making love to ‘a pile of ladies’.
Not many hip-hoppers are honored with SNL spoofs, and while Thompson resembles Jazze Pha way more than Ceelo… it’s still worth a watch.
In case you missed it, check out Kenan gettin freaky as CeeLo Green… Continue Reading…
