I attended a party over the weekend that was supposed to be Sheree?Whitfield’s “Brand New Me” divorce party. As it turns out, her ex-hubby, Bob Whitfield, ended up being the guest of honor! The drama started days before the soiree when Sheree?s people began sending emails to the invited guests stating the following:
Please be advised that the Official ShereeWhitfield Divorce Party has been postponed indefinitely.? Any party being promoted as such is not associated with either Ms. ShereeWhitfield, nor with the Bravo Television Network.? We apologize for any inconvenience, and do appreciate all of your willingness to support and attend.? Thank you.
Not 10 minutes later, I received a phone call that the party was still on but apparently word was out that Sheree had been “banned” from her own party. Sources say that although that’s the word Bravo wants on the street, the truth is that she fell out with the event planners and simply said “eff it” to the bash.? For some reason, she didn’t think the party planners could pull it off and didn’t want to be involved in a “star-studded” affair with no stars.
I’m with you Sheree’!
The party went off as planned, but it was like any other weekend A-Town bash. Now, don’t get me wrong…the rented mansion, the half naked men and the free food and liquor gave it a thumbs up for me. I had a helluva good time chillin at the bar with Frankie, but star-studded? I think not..
There are not enough words in my small “A”zz vocabulary to describe the FABULOUS-NESS that is…celebrity hairstylist Derek J!? Seriously…I <3 him more than you’ll even know and strive to be at least half the woman he is! Derek was doin’ it, yet again, last Saturday as I ran into him at both the “Divorce Party” and Dwight’s Purple Door soiree. I couldn’t help but create a special lil video as an ode to his creamy Swag!

Solange Knowles and Estelle performed to a hyped Atlanta crowd Thursday evening. The concert was held at Center Stage and was sponsored by Honey Magazine. I, personally, am not a huge Solange or Estelle fan but found myself suprisingly entertained! I give mad props to Solange for holding her own onstage. During her finale performance of “I Decided,” she actually dove into the crowd and performed in the middle of a group of her fans who surrounded the front of the stage.
SoSo earned a gazillion cool points for that stunt! Peep the video and a few more flix below: Continue Reading…
I caught up with NeNe Leakes and Sheree? Whitfield last weekend at Niecy Nash’s Birthday Bash.? We chopped it up a bit about hatin “A”zzz blogs and bloggers and when confronted, I was almost as quick to back down as Keri Hilson! Seriously though, I really like the Atlanta Housewives and wish them all success. Their real life problems prove that they’re just as prone to regular everyday bullsh*t as the rest of us, the only difference being…theirs is on front street while yours is still a family secret.
I told NeNe that all press is good press and I meant it. If they ain’t talkin bout you it means you ain’t worth talkin bout….so keep that good gossip coming!? 😆
Stringer Bell…oops! I mean Idris Elba was spotted behind the DJ Booth at Uptown last Saturday night.? We hit the spot mad late so I’m not sure if he was actually DJ-ing or not but I’m sure DJ Trauma had it on lock. I couldn’t help but drool over Idris’ sexy “A”zzz swag with or without his glasses.? I personally think that the glasses make him look distinguished and polished, but he seems to have somewhat of a complex, stating on the mike that “Nobody better say nuffin else bout my glasses!” 😆
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.
