I woke up this afternoon and started calling friends that I don’t talk to during the week, as I do every Sunday afternoon. While talking to my friend Kia back home in Miami, she steered me towards a news report from a local Miami news station. The headline read ” Miami Man Accuses Pouncey Brothers of Assault.” Then she went on to tell me that the man who was attacked was Miami blogger/vlogger Ricky Vasquez. At that very moment I became highly intrigued by the story. I’m from Miami, I’m gay, and I’m also a blogger/vlogger, so you guys can clearly see why I would be interested in this sort of thing. Upon further investigation, I discovered that a female friend of Vasquez was also assaulted. What the hell is going on here?
Around 5 am this morning, Rickey Vasquez took to social media and had this to say about the incident:
“I didn’t know that stuff like this actually f*cking happens to people,” he says in one video. “All I can remember is standing in a crowded club and this big guy keeps hitting me in my back, I look at him and I’m like, OK, he’s obviously turned up. And he just keeps hitting me. I ignore it. I keep ignoring the guy — he’s calling me a faggot. I realize that there’s two of the guys. Now they’re both in my face. The next thing I know, Honey tries to break it up. One of them punches Honey in the face, the other one punches me or the same one, I don’t know. Security comes.

Lawd Appollo done cashed them peoples checks and bootlegged them loans and it has landed him 8 years in the slammer . I hope they have a full supply of Vaseline in the commissary, cause his fine ass is going to need it. I can hear Phaedra now saying “fix it Jesus”.
Apollo Nida just got an enormous break for singing like a canary … he got 1/4 the maximum sentence for a massive money fraud scheme.
Nida — who appears on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” with wife Phaedra Parks — was just sentenced to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.
The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said Nida did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets … and that’s why he got leniency.
Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so 8 years is a big victory.
It’s all relative folks. – TMZ
It’s official!!!! Rosie O’Donnell is returning to The View. I’m so here for this! My only concern is that between Rosie and Whoopi Goldbergh, whomever the stylist is will be unable to find enough vest and men’s white dress shirts for the two of them to wear. Lord I can see the headlines now, “Whoopi and Rosie get to fighting down to the dressing room over a tie”. Ha! Quiet as its kept, they need to just go on ahead and get Wanda Sykes and Ellen DeGeneres! Is it me, or is the cast beginning to look a lil butchie?
It’s reported that producers of The View are looking for a Latina and a Conservative. Two conservative candidates who are being scoped are Abby Huntsman and Margaret Hoover, whoever the hell they are…
Are you excited about Rosie?

For some reason this doesn’t come off as a shock, BET alongside with several production companies to get a Chris Brown reality show off the ground and on the network. This show will follow Brown around as he tries to get his life and career, back on track. Think season one of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle” or Lil Kim’s “Countdown To Lockdown.” (just in reverse.)
According to TMZ, BET has already had a focus group in California on Tuesday and the group, completely made up African American Women and they were asked if they would watch a reality show starring Chris as he tries to stay on the right path while being drug and violence free. The group was spilt on whether or not they would watch the show starring the R&B singer. Of those that would watch, they said they would watch just to see if Chris would screw up again. :-/
