The Collective Renaissance Guild (CRG) in partnership with Ford Motor Company and Perennial Entertainment and Sports celebrated the 2010 Winter Ball: Phoenix Rising in honor of Grammy award-winning artist Toni Braxton and global humanitarian Martin Luther King III on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at the Delta Heritage Museum.
CRG presented their Phoenix Award to Toni Braxton for her hard work and community service with Autism Speaks and the American Heart Association. Martin Luther King III was honored for his global humanitarian efforts and work as President of the King Center. Both honorees were also recognized for their resilience and ability to thrive in challenging times.
Guests enjoyed artistic performances by Buenos Aires Tango Academy of Atlanta, complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres sponsored by Belvedere Intense, music by super producer Bryan-Michael Cox and DJ E-Class and a keynote address from Chaka Zulu, CEO of DTP Records.

Real “Housewives” Sheree’ Whitfield, NeNe Leakes and a pregnant Kim Zolciak hit up Peachtree street in search of Ghosts.
The trio joined the cast of SyFy’s “GhostHunters” in an attempt to GHOSTBUST one of Atlanta’s most unique locations.
Atlanta’s Rhodes Hall was built in the style of a European Castle and is now owned by the state of Georgia. The building was a labor of love for the original owner and builder, furniture magnate Amos Rhodes and both he and his wife died in the Hall. It’s always been rumored to be hunted and frequently serves as a hunted house during Halloween.
Apparently, they couldn’t bear to part from their home after death! Claims are that a tall man (make that a tall, dead man) wanders about the building but his footsteps don’t make any noise.
Then, there’s a little girl that lingers in the foyer in a white dress. That same girl is often seen upstairs with a woman in a white dress. People hear conversations when there’s no one around. Touching, shadow figures, doors opening and closing, temperature fluctuations and a TV with a mind of its own are also on the docket.
The Atlanta Housewives ain’t afraid of no ghosts! They take the challenge and search for paranormal activity.
Watch the full episode below and check out what they found..
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Sheree Whitfield and unofficial “houswife” Lawrence Washington attend the 9th Annual GLAAD OUTAuction at the Metropolitan Pavilion on November 21, 2010 in New York City.
Lawrence was doing the most (as usual) and I’m sure he attracted a ton of “closet freaks” with his outfit.
Another day, another “celebrity” gets their car repossessed.
Sheree’ Whitfield of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” flossed her precious Aston Martin around town and even showed her purchase on a recent episode of the show:
But apparently she can’t afford to maintain appearances. Word on the street is that Sheree’ owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys fees and apparently they ain’t playing no mo about the bill. Sheree’s former divorce lawyer sued her and won a judgment.
On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree’ Whitfield hit the singles scene and went on a blind date. Sheree’ who normally only dances for dollars, took a chance and met her date out for a night of two-stepping.
The lucky fellow, who she described as a “doctor,” sent a car for her and took her straight to SWATS (Southwest Atlanta for all you non-ATLiens). He even brought her store bought flowers!
The two seemed to have hit it off even though they were in the hood and Sheree’ even asked the guy out on a 2nd date.
Now for the good stuff!! While we were tweeting away last night during the show, it was revealed that Sheree’s “blind” date is not a “Doctor” after all. At least, not in the classic sense of the word.
Tiy-E Muhammed has a long sordid history in the “A” and it’s not pretty. Continue Reading…
