Tameka Raymond was spotted posing on the red carpet at Tyler Perry Studio’s grand opening event on Saturday. I didn’t see any signs of Usher, but hopefully he didn’t have wifey parading around all by her lonesome. Especially in her sensitive state.

In case you missed it, below is the video of Saturday Night Live’s spoof of the Vice Presidential Debate. Queen Latifah sat in as Gwen Ifill and of course Tina Fey was back as Governor Sarah Palin. SNL is fast becoming THE PLACE to be on Saturday night. Their political parodies are hilarious and can’t be beat!
“We would like to remind our audience that due to the historically low expectations for Governor Palin, were she simply to do an adequate job tonight, and at no point cry, faint, run out of the building or vomit, you should consider the debate a tie,” Queen Latifah’s moderator said in her introduction.
The funniest part of this week’s skit? When Tina Fey (as Sarah Palin) brough out the flute and asked about the talent competition!
This is a must see!!! Watch full video: Continue Reading…

Ciara came through still driving her Phantom and Jermaine Dupri, Slim Thug, Maino, Trey Songz, DJ Toomp and more shared Jeezy’s presidential affair. There was also one very special guest on the list who had more VIP status than even Jeezy himself…his mom!

Yung Berg his new chain and his mohawk was spotted at PURE nightclub in Atlanta Thursday evening. Berg was also sporting a very colorful backpack, which I described that evening on Twitter. I can only imagine what dude was thinking. Dayum…his face shows it all!!!
Maino also wasn’t too pleased with Yung Berg that night as word quickly spread that he had slapped Berg for mouthing off in the club. Maino felt that Berg was being disrespectful and he smacked him in the face. All I can say is….INCREASE THE PEACE! It’s an election year and we don’t need all this senseless violence! This is some funny ish though…dude knew better to step to Maino’s azzz!
