Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and slimmed down comedienne Mo’Nique did a bit of clowning around backstage during the 2009 BET Upfronts back in April. They each took a moment to “Stanky Leg” it up for the cameras and Chilli issues a mini-message at the end. Cute!
According to That B*tch and Gossip Jacker T-Boz has some hating “A”zz friends in Atlanta. One of em has even decided to hit up some random forum and put all her business on blast. In the post, the loose lipped friend made sure he/she dropped names of some of the “A”‘s musical elite such as Dallas Austin, Rico Wade, Big Rube, Jermaine Dupri, Sleepy Brown and more to obviously add authenticity to her story.? We’ve all heard about T-Boz’s trials with her former hubby Mack 10, well this so-called friend of hers has dayum near written a tell-all book about Tionne’s life in Atlanta and her addiction to drama.
Now to be fair, all this could be made up bullsh*t and even if most of it’s true, we’ve all had our share of dumb mistakes with relationships. Lord knows I have…*sigh* But I decided to post it in it’s entirety simply because it was an interesting read and because I’ve been slacking on my pimpin…(insert side eye). Anywoo…anyone who grew up or lived here in the late 80’s will appreciate the time it took this fake “A”zz friend to compile all this data…Happy reading!
I’ve said this before that I went to high school with Tionne. It did not matter about her having sickle cell. She was always attracted to abusive men. She was supposed to graduate in 1988 from Campbell High School, in Fairburn, GA but she missed so many days from her hospitalizations that she graduated the next year from College Park High School. I found out later that the majority of her hospitalizations was due to her ex-boyfriend, Troy Long aka “Paco”, beating the crap out of her. It’s amazing how all of these kids ended up famous. Believe it or not, we went to school with a lot of the guys mentioned on this site. Dallas Austin transferred from Riverdale High School and went to Lakeshore High, along with Derek “Divine” Stevens.
It’s ironic how Tionne ended up in a group with Rozonda (Chili) because I remember, specifically going to a talent show at Mays High school to help Tionne find Rozonda. She wanted to whip her tail for sleeping with Troy Long.Patrick “Sleepy” Brown went to Therrell High School and he was in a dance group called “Guess”. Tionne and I met him at Jelly Beans skating rink. Tionne worked at LaMontae’s Beauty Supply on the corner of Headland and Delowe with Rico Wade. Patrick was introduced to Rico through Tionne and myself. They hooked up and started doing the music thing (funded by LaMontae who is now in prison for drugs). Rico ended up meeting Jermaine Dupree and at that time Jermaine was trying to start a girl singing group. Rico hooked Tionne up with Jermaine. Rozonda was not in the group at first. Rozonda replaced Sabrina, who went to prison for shoplifting. Tionne was a shoplifter as well between being a shampoo girl at Xcape hair salon. Tionne would go with Marie to client’s homes and met Pebbles. She complained about working with Jermaine Dupree and how he…
Isn’t it obvious why I decided to post “Goodies” as todays flashback? It isn’t? OK I’ll explain: I did it because I want you guys to reminisce about way back when…to a time when y’all used to actually like Ciara so that you can go cop that album. 😕
Monica (pictured above with BET CEO Debra Lee), Comedianne Monique and Actor Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris”) will all be featured in BET’s upcoming lineup next season. Mo and Crews will have reality shows built around their lives, while Monique will host her own late night comedy show.
The slate of shows represents the first programming under new co-presidents Loretha Jones and Stephen Hill, who took over the position following the exit of Reginald Hudlin last year.During a sneak preview Jones and Hill said the new programming will represent a branding strategy of family values and community pride ? an attempt at moving away from some of the negative African American programs the network has received criticism for in the past.
“Monica: Standing Up” will focus on the Monica’s family life and her comeback album, “Breakin’ Up With Mo’Nique” will mark the network’s first late-night talk show and “Crews Control” will focus on the actor, his wife and five kids.
If you’re an avid reader of this site, you recieved this information months ago when I sat down with Monica one on one.? That’s my girl and I’m soooo happy for her! Congrats again Mo….I’ll definitely be watching!
The phenomenal celebrity photographer Derek Blanks just completed a shoot with Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of TLC. Needless to say, the shots are AMAZING!
Chilli is one heffa that never ages! She always looks so beautiful. Derek probably didn’t have to do too much in this shoot besides point and click. Now, me? My photos will really put his skills to the test! I’m still saving my ad money for my shoot though. Hell…. .38 cents a day will have me there in no time. 😕
Flavor Flav proved that spin-offs can be mad profitable [I love New York, Real Chance of Love, I Love Money]. Hell, it’s only natural that Ray-J’s show would sprout a few. I told you a few days ago about Danger’s new show and her crazy twittering, now word on the street is that Chicago Larry, the ummm creep voiced pimp photographer/manager that was linked to For the Love of Ray-J‘s Caviar, is currently shopping his own network reality show. Chicago Larry is Grade A, 100% proof, prime realty show material. Not only does he *cough* “manage” 300+ women, providing their services for rap videos and such [insert side-eye here], but he’s hot on the scene rubbing elbows with celebs from coast to coast.
Tons of celebs have been spotted in his presence. Including a few “A” town favs like Rocko, Shawty Lo, Lloyd, Yung Joc…hell even Chilli has been up in the mix!
What can BROWN do for you?? 😆
Now, I’m not knockin’ the man’s hustle by any means cause a pimp’s…oops! I mean a photographer’s gotta eat too. But I’m bout to lose a bet cause I just knew mean green Bishop Don Magic Juan would be the first official P.I.M.P. with his own show. Oh well…there goes my $3 bux.
Check out a few Chicago Larry candids where he’s posing with several of his celebrity johns….tricks…clients, friends as well as a hilarious sneak preview video of what’s to come: Continue Reading…
