Congratulations to Ebony Steele, Co-Host of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show and Susan G. Komen/General Mills Circle of Promise Ambassador on a successful Bare Chest for Breast Cancer fashion benefit. The event took place last night (October 28) at Club Opera in Midtown Atlanta.
Surprise attendees included Atlanta’s own Yung Joc, Celebrity Hair Stylist Derek J, Clifford “T.I.” Harris (who’s preparing to enter the clink on Monday to serve his 11 month jail sentence)and a host of Atlanta notables.
Tip, Yung Joc and Derek J took to the stage and expressed their support of the importance of breast cancer awareness since all have witnessed the effects of the disease in some form in their respective families.
Last Saturday, Atlanta was host to the unveiling of Rémy Martin V – the first clear spirit from the House of Rémy Martin. The event was hosted by Takers star and acclaimed actor Idris Elba, with DJ Jazzy Jeff on the ones and twos…
Yung Joc as well as and many other industry players, all came out to get a taste of the new Rémy V. Noticeably absent was Atlanta rapper T.I., who as you know was named Rémy Martin’s “Global Creative Consultant” a few months back.
There’s no word on if Tip is keeping his consultant position in lieu of his recent legal issues, but Idris was heard telling party-goers that he was excited to be asked to celebrate the launch of V in Atlanta, and was seen sipping on some signature cocktails such as the “Victor.”
Last Saturday, a select group of the city’s most notable residents joined special celebrity guest hosts Monica and Ne-Yo for test drives of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne during the luxury auto-manufacturer’s “Dance at Dusk” event.
Mo, who just completed the final show of the Passion Pain & Pleasure Tour with Trey Songz, says she’s happy to be home and is looking forward to spending time with her boys. She’s working on her next album, and says the title will also coincide with the next season of her BET reality show.
Detlev Von Platen, President/CEO of Porsche honored Monica & Ne-Yo, fellow Porsche owners, with a special gift of appreciation.

Monday, August 30, 2010, Princess (of Crime Mob) played host to a special Atlanta viewing party for BET’s new documentary “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth about Women and Hip-Hop”.
Female MC, Rasheeda, V-103 DJ Traci Steele; model, Dawn Motgomery; hip-hop publicist, Dee Dee Cocheta; pop-culture expert Ronda Racha Penrice; music industry executive, Shanti Das; and rapper, Eshe from Arrested Development all took part in a panel discussion which highlighted issues that females in hip-hop struggle with in the music industry.
The panelists all revealed a common thread in their discussion, which was that hip-hop is a male dominated world. Women in hip-hop constantly have to fight to maintain respect in an industry where men call all the shots.
Shanell aka SNL’s celebrated her birthday with a party at Club Primal in Atlanta, Georgia. She was joined by her sis D. Woods (formerly of Danity Kane) and fellow “Girls Club” member Mika Means. Of course a party wouldn’t be a party without her Young Money label mates Lil Wayne and Drizzy Drake adding to the crew.
