Monica is just one of several other R&B singers and celebs slated to join a new BET reality series entitled, “Played by Fame.” The show is scheduled to premiere Fri, Jan. 30th and will reportedly pair celebrities with unsuspecting fans.
In vein of recent BET series like ‘Hell Date’, patience is tested and boundaries are broken as celeb-fanatics partake in what appears to be the best opportunity of their lives — spending the day with their favorite celebrity. But reality quickly sets in as a series of pranks turns what started off as a dream day into the worst time of their lives!
Former BET ‘Hits’ and MTV Punk’d host Al Shearer will host the new series that will also feature Lamman Rucker (‘Why Did I Get Married’), Wendy Raquel Robinson (‘The Game’), Bobby Brown, E-40, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Kel Mitchell, Bobby Valentino, Tichina Arnold (‘Everybody Hates Chris’), Eva Marcille, and Melyssa Ford.
‘Played By Fame’ will air Friday, Jan. 30 at 10pm on BET. (Source)

Alexis Miller, aka Mary Jane, is working overtime to remain relevant since filing and dismissing stalking charges against Shaquille O’neal. The jumpoff has apparently assembled a team to market her so-called rap career and recently sent pics out to several blogs displaying what appears to be a tatted replica of Shaq’s “Superman” tattoo. The email I received stated:
“WHOA! WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT SHAQ AND MARYJANE ARE BACK TOGETHER! SHE’S SHOWING OFF THEIR MATCHING TATTOOS ON HER MYSPACE PAGE PICS!!!!! PLEASE POST.”
My spidey senses are tingling with this one. How the hell does she want ME (of all people) to believe that she and Shaq have kissed and made up just because her dumb “A”zzzz went and got tatted up! Like…for real though. My boo can’t possibly be that stupid… Girl bye!

Here are a few flix from last night’s Atlanta screening of “Notorious.” DJ Drama, Trey Songz, Gorilla Zoe and more posed for red carpet pics. As you can see, DJ Drama was photographed showing no signs of a beat down. I was there…so I know for a fact that there WAS indeed a suffle, but I was too busy trying to get away for the melee to find out what was up. AllHipHop caught up with Drama’s camp today and got some clarificaiton:
According to Aphilliates Music Group president La The Darkman, DJ Drama was assaulted by members of Young Jeezy’s entourage last night (January 12), yet walked away from the incident unscathed. “There was a little scuffle. At a movie screening,” La told AllHipHop.com, “A little thing that got handled. Fake thugs with low self esteem want to pick on the DJ’s. We definitely didn’t initiate this though. DJs don’t go looking for beef with fake gangstas.”
So…now that we’ve cleared up any misconceptions that Drama got beat down can we please move on?

Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Sheree Whitfield has decided to dismiss her divorce appeal against her ex-husband, Bob Whitfield. Documents reveal that the former Atlanta Falcon is BROKE and hasn’t even paid his child support for the past 15 months. “To date, Bob Whitfield has paid $425,000 of the court-ordered $775,000 to his ex-wife. But he has not paid any child support since the final divorce judgment was signed in October 2007.” says Sheree’s attorney Michael Weinstock.
Sheree’s dream of a seven-figure settlement has gone up in smoke and apparently the diva has accepted the bitter truth about her ex’s finances. The 2400 sq ft. home Sheree displayed on the show was awarded to her ex in the divorce decree but Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems Inc. is now advertising that it plans to foreclose Continue Reading…
Usher’s Inman Park franchise of The Grape Restaurant has officially closed it’s doors. The location opened to widespread publicity in late 2006 but the spot — a wine bar, bistro and wine retailer rolled into one — did not reopen in the New Year and also did not renew its liquor license with the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Currently, three local branches of the Grape remain: in the Vinings Jubilee shopping center, Phipps Plaza and Atlantic Station. The Atlanta-based Grape Enterprise Group Inc., which both owns and franchises shops mostly throughout the Southeast, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November. Its franchise locations, such as the one in Inman Park, were not party to the filing.
When Raymond Usher IV first met with reporters at the opening of the Inman Park branch wearing a cabernet-purple blazer, he spoke of opening franchises in locales as far flung as Shanghai and South America. Those plans never came to fruition.
A request for comment from Usher’s publicist was not returned by the time of publication. (Source)
