Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was kind enough to sit down with me for a one on one session about a week ago.
We discussed just about everything you can imagine… from her 3-part ‘Ski Trip’ spin off drama (which was resolved quite nicely in the finale – CLICK HERE if you missed that) to topics like Xscape (will there ever be a reunion?), and RHOA reunion show drama (what’s the beef between Kandi & Nene? Is she still BFF’s w/ Phaedra Parks?). Kandi answered EVERYTHING!
For the record, I wanted to do this interview because I’d HEARD that Kandi was feeling some kinda way about some things that I’d said in some of my recaps this season.
Whatever the case, we both got a chance to clear the air and she was definitely honest about her feelings.
Check out what Kandi has to say about all of the above in our in-depth one-on-one interview below… Continue Reading…

I did a one on one interview with Cynthia Bailey of The Real Housewives a few weeks ago and we talked about so many things that I had to split up the footage into several parts.

In this final segment, Bailey addresses the many comments on the blogs that accuse her husband, Peter Thomas of cheating and taking her money.
Thomas spoke up about it on his own during part 2 of the RHOA season 7 Reunion (click HERE if you missed that), but the chatter continues and and Bailey wants to clear all that up completely… for good.
Cynthia also addresses the cheating rumors, her issues with blogs going in on children and she also talks about her many new projects, which include her involvement in the Miss Georgia USA pageant, a new sunglasses line and more.

Atlanta-based rapper Shawty Lo is in the news this week after several sites have drawn comparisons between his ‘All My Baby Mamas’ reality show and OWN-TV’s recent announcement about another Atlanta man with similar issues getting a green light for his show.

I thought it would be interesting to speak one on one with Lo about the comparisons, especially in light of all of the protests and petitions HIS show received when it was picked up (and dropped) by Oxygen last year.

On his show being stereotypical and/or ‘glorifying’ baby mama…
Basically, I can get what they mean by ‘glorifying’ because the name of my show was ‘All My Baby Mamas’… I had nothing to do with that. Period. That was something the network came up with and I was telling them, I didn’t like that name.
I have 11 kids and 10 baby mamas. 11+10 is 21 and I wanted by show to be called, ‘Shawty Lo: Being 21.’
But they did what they wanted to do and I think that’s one reason we got backlash…

They say ‘3rd time’s the charm’ and Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is getting a third go round at her own show.
Kandi first went solo on Bravo back in April 2013 for The Kandi Factory which was a reality competition series that chronicled Burruss and her team’s quest to assist 16 aspiring artists jump-start their dreams of success in the music industry. The show aired for one season with 8 episodes.

Burruss’s 2nd solo opportunity came during Kandi’s Wedding, a five-part wedding series that aired back in June 2014. Kandi and her husband Todd Tucker aired all their family drama as they prepared to walk down the aisle for their wedding ceremony.
Now Kandi’s marital drama has sparked another spin-off for the Grammy-award winning songstress, as Kandi, her hubby Todd Tucker and their blended family hit the screen for a show tentatively titled, ‘Meet The Tuckers‘.

Clifford ‘T.I.’ Harris and his lovely wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle-Harris were ‘boo’d up’ during the premiere of ‘GET HARD’ at the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX in Hollywood, California on yesterday (March 25, 2014).
While the cute couple puts on a brave front, they have certainly gone through their share of ups and downs over the past year.

Yesterday morning, I spilled the tea about Jermaine Dupri‘s rumored ‘tell-all’ ambitions…
[READ: THEY SAY: Jermaine Dupri Planning Janet Jackson ‘Tell-All’ (PHOTOS + VIDEO)]
The overall consensus seems to be that JD would be foul as hell if he chose to publish the intimate details of his relationship with Janet Jackson and his dealings with the Jackson family. After all… some things should remain sacred right??
That being said, Jermaine read my post (and I’m sure he read all of your comments as well) and he’s clearly feeling somekindaway about the tell-all ‘rumor’.
The super producer hit me up in the tweets to offer a response, stating:
Notice that I asked JD for an official denial, but I’m not so sure I got one. Details below… Continue Reading…
