Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Kandi Buress was spotted partying with fellow castmate Kim Zolciak about a week ago. Apparently the two “housewives” completed some sort of photoshoot that showcased their love for each other by displaying the unity of Black & White. *sheds tear* How beautiful… [insert side-eye here]. In case you haven’t noticed, Kim is the only Caucasian castmate on the Atlanta show while the other “Real Housewife of…” shows have an all White/European/Italian..i.e. non-Black cast. In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t really matter since the shows actually portray ALL of them in a crazy “A”zz negative light but I guess there had to be some sort of obvious display of racial unity…
It’s cute…but where are the other “housewives”
I did happen to spot Sheree´Whitfield in the crowd but it appears she just stopped by on her way to the mall.
And I must not forget the FABULESS-NESS that is…. Derek J! It wouldn’t be a real party without him and his outlandish outfits! Plus, when I read that he and Kim had a shoe battle…it was a done deal!
A Fulton County landlord said Tuesday that a young mother was evicted by mistake. The homeowner said Fulton County Marshals evicted his tenant because they went to the wrong house.
The tenant, a young mother, was getting home from work when she got the call that all of her furniture was on the front lawn. When the tenant got home, she said most of her belongings were already taken by looters.
Stills said it happened while she was at work and looters took most of her valuables, but she did put as much as she could, especially her clothing back in the apartment.
Dennis Taylor owns the property where Stills is a tenant.
“She’s paying her rent on time with no problems,” said Taylor.
Taylor said his tenant has lived at 2159 for several years, but the eviction notice was for the people next door.
“They got the wrong house; you see the house they’re supposed to be getting is next door. This is 2159 Apartment 1 and 2,” said Taylor. “That’s the house right there that was supposed to be evicted,” said Taylor.
Taylor said he thought the mistake happened because another home claims it is also 2159. Taylor said the owner built the home without a permit and then stole his house number. (Source)
I still don’t know how two homes could have the same address…but regardless of that, it would seem that Fulton County officials would man up and take responsibility for this woman’s loss. I haven’t heard of any proposed resolution and so far the county is standing by their actions. Horrible!
Fantasia Barrino hit up Biloxi, Mississippi last week to offer words of encouragement to young single mothers. In January, the U.S. Center For Disease Control announced that Mississippi has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the country, with rates 60 percent above the national average. The 2nd Annual Saving Our Sisters Summit invited Tasia out to perform and speak to the teens about her experiences being a teenaged mom:
It’s very important because I am a young mother and I’ve been through a lot of the things that these young ladies will go through. My thing is to try to get through to the young ladies who have not yet gotten to that point. To let them know that it’s very important to stay in school…get your education…prepare your life BEFORE you start to have children. Because it’s not easy out here and there’s lot of our young women having kids a lot younger than the age that I had my daughter.
So, if I could be a testimony to some of these young people and say to them “OK yes, I’ve overcame a lot of things, but it was tough and it was hard” before you get to that point just listen to your parents…get your education.
