Seriously, before you go auditioning for America's Next Top Model, maybe you should take a lesson with Andre J. That way Miss J Alexander won't be rippin your name off of his velcro jacket because you look like you walking to buy a loaf a bread....not even a croissant, just a loaf a bread.

OK, so I don't watch the Keeping Up With the Kardashians show on E! but I might need to! So I came across this clip of Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney talking about Kim...something about Kim's car and letting the man yell at them blah blah...just when I'm ready to turn the shit off, Kim comes and hears them talking about her. She knocks on the door and one of the sisters (the big man looking one) opens the door and then tries to slam it in her face. Kim comes in swinging her purse on ol' girls head! Then she punches her in the arm. I'm shocked! Who knew Kim had it in her to beat a bitch down?! One that is bigger than her too! I mean, it is her sister and all, but still...I never took her to be one that would ball the fist and get to swingin. The bag swingin -- now that looked about right. In any case, you must see for yourself.
Last night's episode of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane was part 1 of the drama that is preparing for Fashion Week. This Fashion Week, in particular, is a little more crazy than normal because it is the first time that Phat Farm and Baby Phat are showing together in one collection. Let the drama ensue...
Sandra is responsible for making sure that the new men's clothes are ready to go -- there is just one lil problem -- the clothes are being made in China and days before the show the clothes are no where to be found. See, KiKi, that's what you get for sending your shit to a third world country. You know somebody in West Bubba Alabama would have been more than happy to sew your shit.
BJ Coleman (Celeb publicist) is responsible for making sure the whole front row is packed with celebs...he wanted Tyra, Amerie, Joss Stone...even Perez Hilton (even stating that Perez lives in L.A. and he prolly won't come but invite him anyway.....REALLY???? Perez is really that bitch...slap my face and call me silly for not knowing) -- there is just one lil problem -- Amerie is the only celeb who shows up to be styled for the show which means that she is the only one who is for sure coming. See now.... of course Amerie is gonna show up! What else she got to do? And not to mention, that black trench she was trying on was CUTE...I mean, of course she is gonna get her some free clothes. She's on the verge of becoming D list...she's very C- right now....very C-. All that to say, it is days before the show and if Amerie is the only celeb you got reppin your front row, then there is a serious problem.
James and Miss J Alexander are handling the model casting. Those two have everything under control. James even got up to show a model or two how its done. Miss J told one bitch she looked like she was going to buy a loaf of bread. HA! There was another one whose walk was right on par with that crazy bitch Lauren who just got kicked off ANTM. Clearly, she didn't make the cut. BUT even with the model casting under control -- there is just one lil problem -- no men models can be cast because the men clothes are still in China! Miss J comes up with the idea to have the men walk with in their draws, socks and suspenders. Yup. That's the plan B. Riiiight.
While all of this drama is going on, Kimora has to shut everybody down because Aoki Lee has a tooth ache. She has a cavity. They go to the dentist right away. While Aoki's toofus is all hurt, Ming is steady biting into the biggest apple she could find. Lookin at her sister like, too bad for you. Then Aoki says "Ming, will you go in with me and stay with me?" Ming takes another bite of her apple and is like, "aiight"....Aoki cheers with happiness! YES! So once in the dentist chair, Aoki gets her some laughing gas and she's good to go. No problems there. Check on the baby toofus!
Jerome, Baby Phat designer, is responsible for making Kimora's dress for the show as well as Ming and Aoki's finale dresses. Oh Jerome. Jerome. Jerome, Jerome, Jerome. First, his perm is poppin. His front swoop gets me every time. Second, he brings the sketches over to Kimora's house for Kimora and the girls to see. Right of the bat Ming is like, nope, I want something different. Then Aoki does her own sketch and Jerome starts laughing, and Ming gives him the crooked eye and says "Don't laugh at my sister's sketch!" HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THESE TWO?!!! Ming will bust your lip if you fuck wit her sister. Loves it. Anyway, Jerome comes up with sketches that everyone is happy with. Except there is one lil problem.....Jerome goes to the fabric shop and the seamstress without his sketches and his swatches!!! JEROME! So he had to try and sketch everything from memory and picked a fabric for Aoki's dress that she did not want. She wanted RED and he picked some lime green shit. Really, Jerome? What is goin on in your life? Then, Kimora's dress takes forever to come from being made in L.A. and when it finally comes and he gets Ming and Aoki's dresses he takes them to them ladies.....Ming's dress, it works check. Aoki's dress....hell and to the naw! It looked very similar to Ming's except the collar and ruffle stuff looked way bigger and the lime green color looked like she was peddlin 7Up. Not to mention, Aoki wanted RED! No and No! Then KiKi tries her dress on and is NOT happy. Jerome, your job depends on this shit. Fix it!
We are left with Jerome looking like he has nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrea! Can't wait for next week!!

This is how I know I'm in love. I'm feelin very funky today...like my mood shifted to strait up BLUE after learning about Sean Bell....but these pictures of Rihanna totally lifted my spirits...and made me want to go and spend thousands on that hot to def black Gucci dress she's rockin the hell out of. She's so HOT. Feast your eyes on the gorgeousness...these are out takes from her In Style and Us Weekly photo shoots. Love her.
So........seems round these parts it is quite alright to shoot an unarmed man 50 times for no good reason. However, should you 'forget' to pay your taxes, Wesley Snipes, you will be sentenced to three years in the pokey. Paris fuckin Hilton served time in jail but three cops who kill an unarmed man on his wedding day, wounding two others, are acquitted. I just don't understand. I am in complete shock and am disturbed by this on all levels.

So, we all have our ideas about who they gay rappers are....who the tops are, who the bottoms are, and who likes to swallow....but thanks to Terrance Dean, we'll need to wonder no more. The industry executive and insider has decided to put it all our there....or so we are led to believe based on his soon to be released book's synopsis.
Alicia's new video for her single "Teenage Love Affair" is really cute...it features Derek Luke (he's so cute) and has a School Daze theme poppin. Me likey.

Entertainment Tonight is reporting that Star filed for divorce from Al U Doin on March 26th. "In a statement released exclusively to Entertainment Tonight, the former "View" co-host says: "Several years ago I made an error in judgment by inviting the media into the most intimate area of my life. A month ago I filed for divorce. The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time in anyone's life that requires privacy with one's thoughts. I have committed myself to handling this situation with dignity and grace and look forward to emerging from this period as a stronger and wiser woman."
How bout several years ago you were so unhappy with yourself that you made an error in judgement and married a flaming gay man. When will there be admittance of that?! And at this point, who even gives a shit Star? You are still inviting the media into your life. If you filed almost a month ago, why are you even talking about it now? Everybody will get the memo on their own when Al U Doin writes the tell all....either that or we see pictures of him this summer walking around Fire Island with his bedazzled cock ring on display.
Either way, I hope this is a lesson for all. Gastric bypass and marrying gay men don't make you happy. It just makes you a skinny Bobble Head with a serious vibrator collection.
Amy. Amy. Amy....what is there left to say to your cracked out ass?! I would highly recommend steroids and donkey milk but I already know that all you will do is add some sizzurp and smoke it all through your pipe. I think you are beyond help at this point. I want so badly for you to get your shizz together. I mean, I do know crack heads who at least brush their teeth. It is the least you can do. Why can't you wash your ass and hit the pipe? Whitney does it all the time but that is prolly cuz Ray-J has a thing about fishless coochie. But I digress...I will continue to either wait for your death or your next album.
Love you boo,
So um, in Lyfe Jennings new song, he says something like "I don't care about what you heard, 30 is not the new 20. It's the same ol' 30." That cracks me up er'time I hear that. But all that to say, there is something real serious in Stacey Dash's steroids and donkey milk because for her, 42 is simply the new hotness.

Have you heard that despite the pending lawsuit and drama, Wendy Williams' talk show is slated to air July 14th on Fox? The hour long tranny fest will run for six weeks in the following major cities: New York (Ch. 5), Los Angeles, Dallas and Detroit. While I can't wait to see this, I'm really much more interested in what's poppin off with Nicole and this lawsuit. Yesterday on her radio show, she had Charlamagne (her sidekick) read the press release announcing her talk show and then he read something about her husband/manager/lover who was a big part in making this happen blah blah....typical cover up and even Wendy knows that she has taught her listeners well and we all know a bullshit cover up when we hear one. It will be interesting to see if after the six week initial run whether or not she'll be paying people off so that her show can go on as planned or if things that happened in the dark will come to light....
Since when are tights and shorts an acceptable combination? Since when do shorts start from the rib cage? Or is that a denim girdle with buttons tucked in the shorts? And didn't we stop rolling the bottom of the shorts up in in 1989? Just why? I think even a 12 year old knows that this ensemble is a hot mess of Forever 21 proportions. Ticky Tacky...just Ticky Tacky!
Tia looks beautiful at her wedding to Cory in her couture gown by Kevan Hall. I love that dress but doesn't it look like she's hiding a baby bump? I'm not sayin, but I'm just sayin.

OK so you've heard me say it a billion times, Good Morning America is my mornin crack. I cannot function unless it is on and that is mostly because of Robin Roberts. GMA is the only morning show of its caliber with two women as the lead anchors and she is the only black woman lead anchor. And it is because she really is the person that you want talking to you first thing in the morning. She is always chipper and you can just sense that she just has a naturally beautiful spirit. When she isn't there, I most certainly miss her. And you know how proud of her I was when she walked in the Isaac Mizrahi show with her bald head...she's just amazing.
So this morning, I was all nervous because she and Diane kept alluding to some kind of change going on and this announcement they were going to make. I was brushing my teeth thinking NO, no announcements! Is Robin leaving?! Is it something else with her breast cancer? I don't want to hear it. But then Diane said it is a beautiful thing. Just stick with us. So at the start of the 8:00 hour Robin tells us that she is no longer going to wear her wig on television. As her hair is growing back, she has been out publicly and speaking at events with her natural bald head. She was wearing the wig for everyone else's benefit and she just didn't want to do that anymore. So while, India Arie's "I Am Not My Hair" played in the background, Robin took the wig off. And she's hot. I can only imagine how freeing that had to be for her. She said she was trying to hold on to the old Robin but having cancer and everything that has come with that, she is clearly no longer the old Robin.
Either way, Robin Roberts is beautiful.
