I caught up with Keyshia Cole’s bio-mom Frankie Lons on the red carpet of the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards this past weekend. She was sporting a new wig, a new front grill and a new attitude as she dished the dirt on her attraction to younger men. Anyone who follows Keyshia Cole or the “Frankie & Neffe Show” is quite aware of Frankie’s young boy magnetism. Shoot… she pulls em quicker than Kim Zolciak used to pull Big Poppa’s AmEx Black card. Anyway, Frankie was quite candid in her response to my question of “How do you always keep a young sexy man on your shoulder?” In fact, she was quite profound in her explanation:
“I’m not a ‘cougar’… I’m just a damsel in distress. Really, actually men my age I can’t deal with em, cause they make me feel old. And Ladies I need to give you some game. If you get a younger man, then he’ll make you feel young. You won’t be bent over and walking slow.”
Just moments after my brief interview with Frankie, she stormed off of the red carpet. If you follow me on TWITTER, you were the first to find out that a fellow blogger asked her a question that suddenly brought tears to her eyes: Continue Reading…
In case you’ve been wondering what Keyshia Cole’s bio-mom has been up to while Neffe’s havin babies, well she’s still on her grind. Frankie recently made an appearance on “Judge Mathis” where she was awarded $5,000. She was suing a former employee for breach of contract but one of the defendants didn’t show up to court, so she won. No word on an air date, but watch out for it sometime during sweeps week
In addition to her recent windfall, Frankie has vowed clean up her life. She says she is giving up alcohol and cigarettes in an attempt to detoxify and also moved to a new place so that she could get away from some of her negative influences. To her family’s delight, she’s changed her social circle and dumped her young fiance. Now don’t think that Frankie has lost her groove, she still has a new youngster (a 23-year-old friend) who she goes to the movies with, but says things with him are just platonic.
I applaud her for cleaning up her act and wish her the best. Frankie can still be seen on BET’s Frankie & Neffe show, but she’ll also be making a few appearances on Monica’s new BET reality show and sharing the stage with Chico DeBarge in a play that’s being produced by Vivica Foxx. You betta work Frankie!!
Keyshia Cole’s big sister Neffe gave birth to a baby girl yesterday. Neffeteria Pugh and her fiance Soullow welcomed their darling little princess into the world and her BFF/Stylist Dariel quickly spread the word via twitter. Neffe is said to have gone into labor around 2 a.m. when she realized that her contractions were about four minutes apart, but her water wasn’t broken at that time. Neffe, co-star of BET’s Frankie & Neffe show, wanted to deliver her little girl by cesarean section, however mama Frankie encouraged her to go with natural childbirth. The healthy baby girl was finally delivered at 5:05pm at 5 pounds 7 ounces and 17.5 inches. Neffe’s fiancé Soullow was by her side at the hospital along with with her mother, sister and several other family members. Continue Reading…
Real Housewives of Atlanta “star” Kim Zolciak got really pissed off yesterday when she saw that Keyshia Cole’s sister Neffe had published her personal cell phone information on Twitter. I wouldn’t know first hand, since that account blocked my “A”zz a long time ago for calling it out as fake but I guess I’ll take Kim’s word for it. Back when I tried to clarify Neffe’s Twitter, she stated that although it is her account, she doesn’t personally run it. When pressed, Neffe said she didn’t even have the sign in information. Now, I’m not picking sides AT ALL cause either one or both of them is vying for our attention. If her info was released I’m not so sure Neffe did it. But whatever the case, Kim may wanna fall back. Neffe & Frankie wouldn’t hesitate to pull her wig off AND kick some “A”zz.
Frankie & Neffe held a viewing party last night for the premiere episode of their new BET reality show “The Frankie & Neffe Show.” Frankie was her normal subdued self and Neffe glowed as her boo Soullow stood by her side. I was invited out but didn’t get a chance to catch the episode cause I was so busy staring at all the beautiful people. Especially Neffe’s BFF/stylist, Dariel and all his fabulous friends. I’ve never seen so many pretty men in makeup in one spot…they had the joint on lock!
A very pregnant Neffe and her gay BFF Dariel were spotted in the Atlanta airport a few weeks ago. Dariel is good for youtubing all of their exploits and honestly, it’s way better than television! So get your Keyshia Cole’s big sis right here right now. I’ve got 3 clips for your ghetto viewing pleasure.
Neffe and Dariel strut through the Atlanta airport chopping it up with fans and clowning for the camera in the first clip and in the 2nd clip Neffe shows how good she is at scratching lottery tickets. In the 3rd and final video, Neffe speaks candidly about her new book, “My Happiness Is My Sanity” and shares some secrets from her past.
The last video really should have been the main topic of this post, but the other two were just so dayum cute! Anyway, get your ghetto reality fix for the day below:
