I’d just like to take a moment to express how grateful and blessed I am to have such wonderful readers of StraightFromTheA!
Y’all give it ‘straight’ with no chaser and lately have been sending in some very entertaining and informative emails.
Just A few days ago, one of you spilled tea about Dexter King’s new wife’s old job and today, I ran across an email from a Tyler Perry fan who feels he’s not being honest about his relationship status.
Apparently Gelila Bekele, the model chick that’s been spotted on Tyler’s arm on many occasions (and the one that sparked those engagement rumors a while back), actually has a boyfriend she’s been dating for several years.
Get into today’s ‘fan mail’ below… Continue Reading…

‘s SoSo Def 20th Anniversary Concert was held at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre last Saturday, February 23, 2013 and the City is still talking about it.
If you following me on Instagram and/or Twitter you may have noticed my live accounting of the festivities. The show was also shown live on ASX-TV and quickly became a trending topic on social networks as Jermaine pulled out all the stops to celebrate his 20 years of musical influence on Atlanta and beyond.

Remember Charles Grant, the former NFL ball player to whom Marlo Hampton, the background character on season 4 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, was fictionally engaged?
Grant, who’s rap sheet is almost as long as his fake fiance’s, was popped late last year for bouncing a $500 bad check which coincidentally is when Hampton publicly fessed up about their “relationship” being over.

Grant hasn’t really played ball since he was released from the Saints in 2010 and word on the curb is that his accounts are all frozen due to tax woes and in addition to all of that he’s been placed on of the ever growing list of “deadbeat” dads.
[Sidebar: We probably should have caught a clue after all his baby mamas started leaving comments under THIS POST. But I digress…]
One of Grants many baby mamas recently hit me up and wants the world to know about his escapades. So without further adieu, here’s what Charles Grant’s baby mama wants you to know… Continue Reading…
We are big readers of your blog here in Jamaica! I thought you would love to see these photos of Vivica Fox taken last night at our function in Kingston, Jamaica.
Viv was the Celebrity Guest for Fashion’s night out at one of Kingston’s trendiest hotspots the FNO boutique. She was amazing and the people loved her.
At one point, we had to shut down the venue due to overcrowding! She looked amazing as well.

In light of recent news that Tameka “Tiny” Cottle will be facing charges in L.A. for drug possession, I posed the question on my twitter of who’s gonna stand up for Tiny since her hubby T.I. had everyone under the sun trying to keep him outta jail (again) and a “mystery” group of admirers even filed a motion on his behalf.

Well, contrary to popular belief, Tiny has at least ONE disgruntled admirer willing to fight for her freedom and he even wrote a letter to the LAPD begging for them to reconsider taking another one of our “Black People Royalty” to prison.
Dear LAPD , Los Angeles District Attorney and Whoever the hell else,
As I searched the blogs this weekend in hopes of finding some new Ashanti music I was shocked to see a headline that you would be charging my auntie in my head Tameka Cottle aka Tiny with possession of ecstasy.
