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.”

In a heartbreaking revelation yesterday, Rocsi Diaz from BET’s 106 & Park openly discussed struggling through an eating disorder in high school. The normally bubbly host broke down during the taping of the show as she described her use of diet pills and anorexic behavior in order to remain thin for her cheerleading team.

Body image issues (especially in the entertainment industry) is common and while not everyone can openly admit that they binge/purge, use diet pills and go through other extreme measures to fit in to the industry standard of beauty, she did and I’m sure her story touched quite a few lives.
Tiny & Toya hit the 2009 BET Awards show last night. Tiny accepted T.I.’s viewer’s choice award for “Live Your Life” and even prepared a min speech for the event. It was the first time Tiny had ventured out without Tip and although she admits to being nervous as hell, she had her BFF Toya to lean on.? Check out a few of Toya’s candid twitpics from the event below:

One of the stars of the Atlanta version of BET?s College Hill series was apparently ?hacked? and outed as gay on Twitter this morning.? I don?t know who he pissed off, but apparently the person?s *cough* friend decided to do a little bit of detective work around 4:45am while they were sleeping and found nude pics and got a bit upset. All I know is… it ain’t safe to leave your twitter unattended.
