Monica‘s new BET reality show, “Still Standing” is underway and she recently sent over a few promo shots. She’s also live on the radio airwaves all this week filling in for V-103’s Ryan Cameron (3pm-6pm) so be sure to check her out. I caught a few minutes yesterday and Mo was killin’ em! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us today.
Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob and also known as Lil Scrappy’s boo) recently completed a photoshoot with celebrity photographer Derek Blanks. I don’t know bout you, but I almost thought these were photos of Ciara, which is what took me so long to put em up. <~ I kid…I kid! Anywhoo…Derek is known for his amazing images and he definitely didn’t disappoint this time. He totally turned Diamond’s style game inside out and the photos almost make you forget those awful images of her and Scrappy at church last Easter Sunday. Great job Derek!
Check out more photos and some behind the scenes video from the shoot below:
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.
My favorite celebrity photographer, Derek Blanks unveiled his new and improved website last weekend during an event hosted by NeNe Leakes of the Atlanta Housewives. The event was held at 595 North Friday evening and the walls were ablaze with Derek’s masterpieces.? From Jennifer Hudson to Monica…From Akon to Usher and from T.I. to David Banner. Derek has shot them all.
I managed to arrive LATE and without my memory card in my camera!? The life of a blogger… *sigh* but I love Derek so much that I prepared a lil montage video from the event in his honor. Check it out below:
Shouts out to Derek’s assistant, Robert Ector and make-up artist Toni Acey!
Derek’s photography is nothing less than spectacular and he’s well known for turning images into art. I’m still saving my pennies for my Alter Ego photoshoot (and currently taking donations!) but you can hit up Derek at his new site, DBlanks.com to view his work and/or to contact him for your next shoot.

Super celebrity photographer Derek Blanks recently completed a hott photoshoot with my homie super blogger NecoleBitchie.?
