Stringer Bell…oops! I mean Idris Elba was spotted behind the DJ Booth at Uptown last Saturday night. We hit the spot mad late so I’m not sure if he was actually DJ-ing or not but I’m sure DJ Trauma had it on lock. I couldn’t help but drool over Idris’ sexy “A”zzz swag with or without his glasses. I personally think that the glasses make him look distinguished and polished, but he seems to have somewhat of a complex, stating on the mike that “Nobody better say nuffin else bout my glasses!”
Actress/Comedienne Niecy Nash‘s celebrity filled birthday bash was held at celebrity photographer Derek Blanks‘ studio Saturday night. Niecy, star of Comedy Central’s “Reno 911″ and host of The Style Network’s “Clean House” was all aglow as she showed off her svelte new figure with silver sequins. Niecy lost a ton of weight while on Jenny Craig and I think she’s still one of the spokespersons for they were one of the sponsors of the party.
The Atlanta housewives stopped through and totally stole Niecy’s thunder, all the while keeping the guests more than entertained. NeNe told me she hated bloggers before realizing I was one but I think we kinda bonded after she, Sheree and I had a conversation about how they feel bloggers hate on them all the time and only write negative things. I immediately took offense and explained how all press is good press and told them to stand strong in knowing that we (or I since I can only speak for myself) only write about things I care about. So there! My new BFF NeNe’s response? “Keep on hating and keep on blogging!” Celebrity hairstylist Derek J even managed to jump down my throat for asking him to tell the readers who he was (on camera).. I LOVE HIM!
Anyway…everyone knows that The Real Housewives without husbands of Atlanta is my sh*t and I would never say cruel things about them. *cough* [Help! I’m choking.] Moving on….Kim Zolciak came through for about half a second and walked the red carpet before fleeing out the front door (as if we cared)..and before you ask…there was no sign of new housewife Kandi Buress.
T.I. hit the stage for another farewell concert this weekend but this time it was different. This show was held on Tip’s home turf, Club Crucial on Bankhead Donald Lee Hollowell and had a special surprise guest.
Nope…you eyes aren’t deceiving you! Shawty Lo joined T.I. onstage during his performance of “Big Thangs Poppin” and they both shook hands and finally squashed all the nonesense.
Dem Bankhead Boyz back together again!
Lo even took a moment to apologize to Tip’s boo, Tiny for all of the negative things he’s said about her. Is it me or does Lo strongly resemble Jeezy is this pic? On second look…Nah! I think it’s just my lack of nutrition today.

It’s been leaked recently that former Xscape member Kandi Burruss has been slated as the replacement for DeShawn Snow on the next season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m really excited about this new season!
Kandi has a looooong history on the music scene in the ‘A.’ From her participation in the R&B singing group Xscape (which also included sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, as well as Burruss’ best friend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle)…to her high profile relationships with industry dudes, Kandi’s definitely no stranger to controversy.
She’ll fit into the ‘housewives’ gang quite well cause her name has been around these here parts for a minute.
It’s been said that she was the main reason behind the breakup of Xscape because her *cough* ‘relationship’ with the group’s producer, which happened to be Jermaine Dupri, was Continue Reading…
Slim of 112 recently shot the video in Atlanta for his next single for his solo album “Loves Crazy”, which is in stores now. The new song is called Apologize and Slim is shown in the video serenading us in front of an all female band. Great concept for this smooth ballad!
