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.:

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

Married To Medicine’s Mariah Huq Pregnant With Twins. Just In Time For A Story Line…

Yes Gawd Hunty, maybe some new life will breath new life into Married to Medicine. According to Mariah’s Twitter feed, her and Dr. Huq are expecting twins.

I’m not sure what the photo was Mariah posted on Instagram, but it has since been deleted. I’m actually kind of excited about the news. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out what these Medicine Wives were going to have to talk about this season. We are over Mariah & Quad and that stale drama, we are tired of Toya & Eugene being borderline homeless, and we don’t have time for Dr. Heavenly and that brown gel she uses in her hair. I wonder if Mariah has selected Dr. Jackie or Dr. Simone as her Ob/Gyn? Could make for really good television. Mariah could get all her prenatal affairs in order and gossip at the same time. That’s how you kill two birds with one stone. Sounds like a production plus to me.

Congrats to Mariah & Aydin Huq on the expectancy of their twins!!!

Kriss Jenner’s Got A New Cookbook, But Who Wants To Cook Like This B!tch?

Posted in Complete Devastation To The Nation

Kris Jenner is known for a lot of things, but I never knew cooking to be one of them. Quiet as its kept, I don’t believe this heffa has cooked a dinner a day in her damn life. She strikes me as the type of mother that stopped by Boston Market on the way her way home from soccer practice. If you really want to know the truth about it, I was done with this b!tch and this book when she got her ass Good Morning America this morning and attempted to make soup. Do you know this heffa told the people to go to the grocery store, buy a pre cooked chicken, shred it, and boil it in water in an attempt to make a broth? Now how the hell are you going to pull any juice out of an already cooked chicken? Chile, if you ask me, I don’t half think this heffa wrote this damn cookbook. Then again, with her trying to repurpose a rotisserie chicken, she probably did write it. Only someone who does not know their was around the kitchen would try to repurpose a chicken for broth.

Anyway, I’m not convinced Kris Jenner has the Midas Touch when it comes to her personal brand. We just don’t see it for her! She had a talk show that nobody watched, and now she’s got a cookbook that no one is going to buy. What the hell she needs to do is sit her ass down somewhere and spoil her grand baby. Kim & Kanye, if you know like I know, you better pack little North West’s meals before you drop her off to grandmas house.

Nigeria and Boko Haram Agree on Ceasefire and Release of 200 Girls

I never quite knew what the entire situation surrounding the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls, and the “Bring Our Girls Back” campaign. However, I did follow the situation attentively enough to know that the young girls were still being held captive.

According to the NY Post:

Under massive global pressure, the militant Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram has agreed to release more than 200 schoolgirls they kidnapped earlier this year, military officials announced Friday.

Nigerian officials announced that the insurgents agreed to a truce with government forces and will free the students after holding them in a remote forest since their abduction six months ago, according to reports.

“We are inching closer to release of all groups in captivity, including the Chibok girls,” Omeri told the BBC.

“We are monitoring the news with huge expectations,” members of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign said in a tweet on Friday.

Nigerian officials said that the girls are in good condition and have not been physically harmed.

Erykah Badu Sings On Corner For Money – “Please Help A B!tch Out”. Earns $3.90 (video)

Listen, Erykah Badu does not have the sense Gawd gave a billy goat. I don’t know what possessed this heffa to stroll her ass to the middle of Time Square, chose a corner, and start singing for money, BUT SHE DID. Not tea no shade, the ish was funny as hell. Erykah broke out into an impromptu song, and the mess she was saying was so funny. Majority of the people that were passing her buy looked at her like she was crazy. A few actually stopped and gave her a donation. I know Erykah said work wasn’t honest but it pays the bills, but damn girl. Check out her creative New York street experiment, and prepare to laugh.

A note from Erykah:

“In no way is this video a reflection of my feelings about homeless or unfortunate families nor individuals who have no other means of survival in our world,” she said in the video, which was taken at 8:00 p.m. on Oct. 10. “Instead, this short film was shot w/ my iPhone and edited in iMovie for entertainment purposes only and serves as a personal ‘hustle’ experiment for me.”

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.

EXCLUSIVE: R&B Divas L.A. Fires Puerto Rican Mute Claudette Ortiz

Posted in Complete Devastation To The Nation, R&B Divas, reality tv

R&B Divas LA has been green lit to shoot season 3, and production will commence without the Puerto Rican mute Claudette Ortiz. That’s right, non speaking Ortiz has been given her walking papers. Quiet as it kept, and I’ve said this before, I don’t know how Claudette made the roster in the first place. Quite frankly, with her very short-lived career and meager contribution to music history, Claudette is as far away from being a true R&B Diva as people in hell are far a way from ice water. I mean seriously, her group City High had two hits, and she was a featured artist on a Wyclef track. I promise you, I am not trying to go in on Claudette, I actually like Claudette, I’m just keeping it real.

The word on the curb is that Claudette get let go because she was making extra demands without realizing she was hanging on by a wing and a prayer , and was the most boring cast member on the show.  The Powers that be were somewhat insulted, and told Ortiz and her demands to take a long walk off a short pier. It’s rumored that Claudette was asking for an increased styling allowance and other miscellaneous superficial request.  Lowkey, TvOne should have granted her request for an increased styling budget. Claudette stayed walking around looking like a high school student going to check their locker. Oh Well…

Prior to R&B Divas LA, Claudette shared with us that she was borderline homeless. I hope Claudette does not have to return to using that ‘caramel completion’ to make ends meet. Work ain’t honest but it pays the bills. With all those damn children, in the words of Precious’s mama, “you better take your ass down to the welfare!” I hate that this happen to Claudette, solely because she needs the exposure, and moreover the check. However, the net effect to the show will be ZERO. She wasn’t contributing anything anyway. Filming starts in about a week, and I’m being told that production is scrambling to find a replacement. Hopefully they are able to secure a true R&B singer with a rich history, a catalog of music, and a story. We shall see… I’ll most definitely keep you guys posted.

Who would you like to see join the cast of R&B Divas LA?

BRAVO Issues Housewives Payments. Kenya Moore Now Able To Fulfill 20k Charity Challenge From MONTHS AGO

Posted in reality tv, RHOA

kenya moore

Y’all can cuss me out all y’all want, and say whatever y’all want to say about me when it comes to Kenya Moore. I JUST DON’T SEE IT FOR HER. I don’t feel like anything that Kenya does in genuine. If you are going to give to charity, give to charity. No need to get on Instagram and turn it into a “look at what I’m doing” campaign. No tea no shade, I will acknowledge that despite Kenya’s motives, this contribution is a great thing For the Detroit Public Schools System. However, I want to know, what the hell took Kenya so long to stroke the check? Hell, Nene challenged her to make a 20k donation MONTHS AGO. Better late who-is-the-queen-of-the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-nene-leakes-or-kenya-moorethan never huh? I’ll tell you what took so long, the broke b!tch didn’t have it. With RHOA getting ready to air soon, Bravo has issued another one of the ladies incremental payments, and now Kenya was able to write the check. Ha!

As for Nene’s 20k matching of Kenya’s contribution, y’all know it’s coming. Something in my spirit tells me that Nene is probably going to donate even more to one-up Kenya. If petty competition fosters donations being made to needy causes, than I am all for it. All jokes aside, let me say this loudly to Kenya Moore:

Kenya, THANK YOU so much for your contribution to charity. You didn’t have to do it, but you did. 20k is a pretty substantial sacrifice from anyone’s personal funds, and for this, God is going to bless you!

I do have a few nice bones in my body! Let me point out that Kenya was supposed to hand deliver the check to her former high school. They had an assembly planned in her honor and all. For whatever reason, Kenya couldn’t attend.

“I’m disappointed for a variety of reasons,” said Glenda Price, president of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation.

“The students at Cass Tech were preparing to perform. There has been so much anticipation about her visiting the school.”

Oh well lady, shut up and take the check. If it ever makes it there. LOL! BYE
