Yung Joc and his lady love Khadiyah were among guests invited to an advanced screening for the new film ‘Vacation’, which was held at Regal Atlantic Station theatre last night (July 27, 2015).
The event was one of several ‘influencer’ screenings across the country, sponsored by Warner Bros. to create interest in upcoming flicks and the remake of National Lampoon’s Vacation was up next on the list.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. New Line Cinema’s “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.
Janee Bolden of Bossip and V-103’s Ryan Cameron played host to the Atlanta event and attendees included “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” cast members Yung Joc, Khadiyah Lewis and Shay Johnson; Michelle Brown (StraightFromTheA), Mushiya Tshikuka (WE tv’s “Cutting It: In the ATL”), Egypt Sherrod (HGTV’s “Property Virgins”), Gocha Hawkins (WE tv’s “LA Hair”), Dice Dixon (VH1’s “LaLa’s Full Court), Melissa Knowles (HLN anchor), rap duo TK & Cash, Angel McCoughtry (WNBA Atlanta Dream), Jadarius Jenkins (son of rapper Jeezy) and more.

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.
[FLASHBACK: Good News and Bad News for Shawty Lo (And All His Baby mamas)… ]
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…
