Ain’t This Some Sh!t. Waka Flocka Endorses Cough Drops With SMOKE All Around Him.

Posted in LHHATL

Waka-Flocka-throat-drops

With all the legalization of marijuana going around, I guess the people have had to find away to market their products to its users. A pretty good idea considering that its a new and untapped market. Pine Brothers low key solicited the help of Wacka Flacka to send the message that if your throat hurts, or is all raspy from smoking weed , pop a Pine Brothers cough drop. The commercial made me slightly uncomfortable. When we traditionally think of cough drops, we think of their use for things that are involuntary and undesirable, like a cold. In this commercial, Wacka is selling us cough drops for some sh!t that can totally be prevented. Funny right? To add insult to injury, this more than awkward commercial aired during the height of last night’s ( 11/13/14) American Music Awards. I’m more than positive that Pine Brother’s reached their target demographic with the AMA’s, young and impressionable.

From Fired To Friends. Benzino & Althea Party It Up With Tamar & Vince in L.A.

Posted in LHHATL, reality tv

I guess Benzino & Althea got sick and tired of all the drama in Atlanta, so they hightailed it to L.A. for a little rest and relaxation. I was playing around on tamar and altheaInstagram when I stumbled across a picture of Althea & Tamar. No tea no shade, the picture looked a little weird to me, because the two ladies seem like an unlikely pairing. Real talk, I was thinking to myself, “what the hell is Tamar doing with Althea?” We all are aware that Benzino & Vince know each other. Vince even appeared on an episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Remember when Benzino was trying to help Karlie get get that daydream she calls a career off the ground? Exactly…

Upon further Instagram stalking, it appears that Tamar & Vince and Althea & Benzino went out to dinner and hung out for the night. No harm no foul right? Maybe not. Excessive picture taking and Instagram posting tends to be a habit of those of the female persuasion. I found it a little odd that majority of the pics and the videos from the night were posted by Benzino. Ok F&ck the bullsh!t. Let me stop talking in riddles. All this Instgram flexing feels like ghetto marketing. It feels like a ploy to be regarded in higher status. In my eyes, It felt like Benzino was saying “hey world, look, we hang out with Tamar & Vince.” Maybe I’m reaching, maybe I’m doing the most, but it just didn’t feel natural. In all honestly it felt kinda of creepy and calculated.

Anyway, check out the rest of the pictures from Benzino & Thi Thi’s romp with Tamar & Vince. Continue reading

K. Michelle ‘My Life’ Episode 2. Why Does K. Michelle Have All Those Damn People Living With Her? [Full Video]

Posted in LHH, LHHATL, reality tv

Nessa Girl, these reality TV shows do a very good job on confusing the hell out of me these days. It is very hard for me that K. Michelle’s friend Tracie flew from Memphis to New York to return K’s dog, with zero intentions of flying back home. Especially considering the fact that K had been avoiding her calls and texts. Sh!t like this only happens in the land of reality tv.

On episode 2 of K. Michelle’s ‘My Life’, K goes from being an R&B Singer to a boarding house operator. Nema, a bish K hardly knows needs a place to live, and K’s other friend Tracie, a proven thief also needs to a place to lay her head. If you think this a recipe for disaster, trust me it is.

Benzino & Althea Want You To Know That Althea Filed Charges Against Joseline BEFORE They Were Fired

Posted in LHHATL, reality tv

So every now and again, The Doll get’s things wrong. I’m not too proud to apologize, retract information, or publish the correct information once being informed of my mistake. Yesterday in a post called Joseline Hernandez Wanted By NY Cops. Benzino & Althea File Charges AFTER Being Fired From LHHATL, I reported that Althea filed charges with the NYPD after being attacked by Joseline at the filming of the reunion only after her and Benzino were fired. Althea and Benzino reached out to me to let me know this is not true. Althea in fact filed charges almost immediately following the altercation.

althea correct benzino correct

 

To be honest, this corrections sheds a bit of clarity on factors as to why Benzino and Thi Thi were fired. I more than positive that filing suit created a situation where Benzino & Thi Thi could not film with Stevie J. & Joseline. It was also confirmed to me that Stevie J. & Joseline applied a little pressure and told producers they would not film with Benzino & Thi Thi in an effort to get them fired. All of this put together spells out to me pretty good reason as to why Benzino and Thi Thi were let go…

What do you think?

Joseline Hernandez Wanted By NY Cops. Benzino & Althea File Charges AFTER Being Fired From LHHATL

Hernandez--660x400

You know, in 2014, you can’t just go around putting your hands on people like you use to be able to back in the day (which is a good thing). These days, people have gotten hip, and are calling the police and filing charges on mofos for assault and battery. If you know like I know, we are going to have to go back to slashing a b!tches tires or pouring sugar in a hoe’s tank if she gets beside herself. Then once that is done, sit home for a week, and pray her apartment complex didn’t have video cameras. Ewww lawd I’m telling too much of my own business. Anyway, things are starting to get way out of hand. It is obvious that Benzino & Althea are really upset about being fired from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

Since being given their walking papers, charges have been filed against Joseline Hernandez in NYC. Additionally, Althea has filed suit against Joseline, and Joseline was served last week at her Stone Mountain home. The thing that is baffling me the most is that all this lawsuit business is what got the couple booted in the first place. Benzino is on social media, all but begging for his job back, yet he and Althea are continuing on with the lawsuit business. Honestly, who in their right mind is going to employ you and empower your pockets to sue them?  On one hand, Benzino was asking the fans to basically contact Mona and lobby for his job back:

benzino tweet

Then on the other hand, Benzino got gangster and pretty much issued and all out “F$ck You” to Mona Scott-Young:

benzino mona stevie joseline

Needless to say, Benzino & Althea can kiss Love & Hip Hop Atlanta GOOD BYE. In addition, they probably can kiss any business relationship with VH1 and Viacom as a whole good bye, at least for right now. For whatever it is worth, Mona Scott-Young is the Golden Child at the moment. One phone call can either make or break a deal. Especially when you have very little leverage. Not being shady and just keeping it all the way real, Thi Thi has no leverage, and Benzino has very little. And if you want to be perfectly honest, the little that he does have has proven to be worthless to the powers that be, hence his pink slip… LISTEN, I DON’T MAKE THE NEWS I JUST REPORT IT !

I honestly don’t know what Althea and Benzino ultimately expect to come out of all this lawsuit business. So what, Joseline ends up with a charge and does 30 days in jail and pays a small fine. Wont be the first time. The b!tch has a rap sheet as long as The Yellow Brick Road. At the end of it, she’ll still sashaying her no speak-eh-dey-engles ass across our tv screens every Monday nights, while B & Thi are home taking selfies and Tweeting. All jokes aside, I would have befriended the b!tch if keeping the job meant that much to me. I would have befriended her & Stevie and played both of their asses like a game of chess. I guess that’s just the  inner rich white woman in me. They say when one door closes, another opens. Maybe now Benzino can focus on Hip-Hop Weekly and really get it popping the way The Source use to back in the day…

it will be interesting to see how all of this plays out. Benzino & Thi Thi, y’all call me. Let’s go grab drinks.  I’m curious to know what all is going through y’all minds…

 

K. Michelle: My Life Episode 1. [Full Video] Are The People Here For It?

Posted in LHH, LHHATL, reality tv

K-Michelle-My-Life-video-screenshot

Alright, I just got through watching the 1st episode of K. Michelle’s new show, and I must say that The Doll is here for it. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but i was pleasantly surprised. The show is pretty much comprised of K. Michelle and her three friends Paris, Jonathon, and Nema. Let the record officially reflect that I’m not too sure If I am here for Paris. I personally just think she is too big to be as loud as she is. You can’t have a big body, a big mouth, and a big ass personality. Look all that shit can’t fit in the room. Paris does have her funny moments. Maybe she’ll  grow on me. I will say that snatching K.Michelle out of the cluster f&ck of an ensemble cast will give us an opportunity to get a better glimpse of who she is at her core, and not just a one dimensional view of her not so favorable moments.

Anyway, check out Episode 1 of ‘K. Michelle: My Life’ and let me know what you think?

 

Is this show a hit? Will you be watching?

Benzino May Not Be Returning To Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Will He Be Missed?

Posted in LHHATL, reality tv

Let me start out by saying, with Love & Hip Hop, you never know whats real and whats fake. The show has taken such a contrived turn, that I don’t even try to keep up anymore. However, one thing that is real is the drama between Stevie J. & Benzino, and the dissipation of their friendship. It really saddens me that Stevie & Benzino have remained unable to salvage their friendship. For the life of me, I really don’t even get why they are mad with one another. Honestly, they probably don’t know why they are mad with one another. Quite frankly, the sh!t has gone on for far too long enough.

According to Benzino, Stevie J & Joseline may be potentially using their popularity as leverage to persuade the folks in charge not to bring Benzino back.:

benzino-instagram-

No tea no shade, I could see Stevie J & Joseline pulling a stunt like this. It wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened in reality television. However, if Mona Scott-Young did decide to not bring Benzino and Althea back, I’m sure it would have more to do with the lawsuit he filed after the reunion, and less to do with a casting recommendation from the likes of Stevie J & Joseline. I mean seriously, who the hell in their right mind would take orders from Stevie J or Joseline?

This isn’t all Benzino had to say. Check out the rest below. Continue reading

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Contract Negotiations FAIL – They Are NOT Trying To Pay Althea. Should They?

Posted in LHHATL, reality tv

benzino-and-althea

Chile… It looks like Althea may have spilled all her business, and gotten attacked by Joseline all for NOTHING. I just got off the phone with my good girl friend from production, and she just let me know that the powers that be have no intentions on paying Althea, and Benzino & Althea are not happy about it. Now I love Althea & Benzino, but real talk, why should they pay her? Hell, you performed like a circus clown for free for an entire year, now you want to demand wages? Additionally, its not as if Althea was sought out by the people responsible for bringing Love & Hip Hop Atlanta to light. In all realness, Althea is a couple people removed from an actual cast member, so I’m not really understand how much compensation her and Benzino are really expecting.

Where a lot of these reality tv personalities go wrong is that they do not maximize the leverage they have with the platform they have been given. If Althea & Benzino were strategically marketing her music, his magazine, or other business ventures through the Love & Hip Hop platform, they wouldn’t be pressed about a payroll check. They better take notes from Kandi Burruss. Kandi has used RHOA to advertise all of her other business ventures, and this strategy has proven to be very lucrative.

All in all, check or no check, I’m pretty sure Althea and Benzino and their ‘Ghetto Love’ will be returning.
