The reunion show was entertaining but thumbs down to Bravo for chopping the shopping to show up so much that it was obvious and confusing at times. It looked like Nene and Lisa went from calm to infuriated in a matter of seconds with no cause. And we all know that's not true. Plus they edited Lisa's confrontation with Kim...boo
DeShawn is a bore as far as I'm concerned. And a ditz. To be faid, that's how she comes across.
Lisa is showing her true colors these days. The editors were in her favor throughout the show but clearly there's more to her than just a female hustler with great looks and no drama. Nene needs to look at her with one eyebrow raised because I don't trust her.
Nene, the crowd favorite could have conducted herself with a bit more class. But I guess that's why we love her. The springer moments were uncalled for. But she needs her own show along with her gay divo.
Kim is a sad sad case. She clearly has low self esteem and is a complete follower. The cancer breakdown was just an all time low. So do you have cancer or not? Why even bring it up then? ***shakes my head**
Sheree or shall I say "Hereee" is the best example of a wannabe I've seen in years. Yes you can be dignified and have class but we've seen you at work and a classy lady you are not. She tries way to hard, and I can see right through her.
Check out one of the many spoofs from the Bonnie Hunt Show
So at first Matthew said his daughter will do close to a million in the first week. Then he said between 500-600k. The numbers are in and according to Billboard:
Beyonce scores her third straight No. 1 debut on The Billboard 200 this week as the double-disc "I Am ... Sasha Fierce" (Music World/Columbia) shifts a whopping 482,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Her last album "B-Day" moved 541,000.
We all know this girl is working dang hard to hold on and become the legend she's worked for. But I'm not seeing Bey doing any better than she's done in the past. Her peak has come and gone.
Having said that I do believe a lot of the 'it' girls today will be long gone and she will somehow still be around long after they are gone.

"Miley and Taylor want to send a loud and clear message to girls everywhere: 'Don't date a Jonas Brother as they'll only break your heart!'" a source spilled to the magazine according to a report published this week.
"Hannah Montana" star Miley, 16, and Nick, 16, broke up after a two year romance, while 18-year-old country music cutie Taylor recently accused Joe, 19, of cheating on her, which her vehemently denies. She says he cruelly dumped her in a phone call.
"While she was in Paris last month, Miley performed the song '7 Things', which all her fans know is about Nick. At the end of the song, she added, 'I still hate you,'" the chatty source added.

1. An award show has no credibility when it gives Rihanna an award over Mariah, Mary and Alicia Keys in rnb category
2. An award show has no credibility when it gives Chris Brown artist of the year after selling a whooping 1.5 million after a release and re release.
3. It's clear Beyonce seems desperate to get back that crown Rihanna snatched from her. Rihanna is currently the highest selling pop and circumstance artist internationally.
4. Leave the Jonas bros alone already.
5. Kanye is the most annoying artist ever
Rihanna looked like a chicken but she did it well.
Natasha looked like she still needed a bath but the suit was hot
Leona looks hot
The girls of PCD brought their A game
Miley was hands down best dressed on the red carpet
Sara Silverman not giving a fug
Tocarra looking a clown
Colbie looking a elephant
Ashley Tisdale looking a chicken
Christina looking a hot mess
PERFORMANCES FROM BEST TO WORSE
1. Alicia paid respects to some of the greats of different genres.
2. Neyo remains the most underrated rnb artist
3. PINK AND SARAH performed 'Angel
4. Pink also performed 'Sober'
6. Kanye continued his Tpain impersonation
7. PCD left me fully entertained
8. Christina did her best not to imitate Lady Gaga. I wish she'd just sing. She looked a sloppy mess
9. Mariah tried. WTF at Nick being on the stage?
10. Leona Lewis made me snore
11. Miley did what she does
12. Rihanna continued to bore me...and the yelling, wow?
SEE THE RIDICULOUS NOMINEES AND WINNERS
Cici and Lala at the lauch of Jordan Melo by Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand
Later that week in NY, Ci was caught shopping at Barneys. Lets hope this was a temporary flashback and she hasn't gone back to her dirty jean and uggs days....
The queen of dance was spotted in NY still pulling together new songs for a new album. Last week we reported that as it stands her old management allegedly continues to leak old songs recorded for the album forcing her to go back in the studio.
How are the blogs treating you these days?
I try to stay away from them. Initially they were great, and they just got worse and worse. I don't think people can see who you are from seven episodes that are one hour each.
What do you say to people who call you a gold digger?
They can know that when I married my ex-husband he made $22,000 dollars a year and I was a nurse and a waitress. I knew nothing about what Big Poppa had [financially] for six to nine months. I've been rich and I've been poor and God can take it and give it. Buying the Escalade, I mean good God. People are all going to talk. The check didn't bounce, I still have the car -- nice try people.
What is a typical day for you?
I have an amazing life. My girls go to a private school, and then I come home and have my coffee and chill out. I'm always with my girlfriends. I'm working with a new record label, I have lunch with my girlfriends, pick up my kids and then it's homework time.
New record label?
WEG Records. It's an independent label and they are re-negotiating my contract at this time.
What happened with Dallas Austin?
I have not spoken to him to comment at this point. The way he appeared on the show was definitely not his true character, and it wasn't a good portrayal of what was going on. It's become a joke and he has worked with some major people. I don't blame him at all for what he's saying.
Did you feel misrepresented at any time?
Yes, absolutely. It's for entertainment. My singing career was not an accurate portrayal of me singing. And I drink in every episode it seems. I do love wine but for God's sake! I'm a loyal friend and the way it was portrayed it didn't necessarily show that.
What's going on with Big Papa?
I called off my engagement. The big news is that we are no longer together. I tried to avoid him being on the show. He wasn't kept a secret for any other reason. He is estranged from his wife. There has been so much speculation, and it's funny to me.
How has your life changed since the show went on the air?
Oh lord. Well, I've had to get tougher skin for sure. I take everything kind of personally. I lived my life with my girls, and I no longer have that luxury. Of course you get recognized all the time, which I love. My older one reads the blogs. She's 11. I tell them just to remain true to who they are.
How are things between you, NeNe, Lisa and the rest of the ladies? The reunion looks pretty heated.
Drama drama drama. Some stuff took its toll. It's, “she said, she said.” I'm closest to Sheree at this point. I really like her. It's not exhausting to be around her. NeNe and I are working it out, and Lisa and I are not necessarily speaking at this point.
Are you really 29? Set us straight.
I'm actually 30, and [the controversy] is hilarious to me. In some of the clips there was a ton of makeup on me. In some of the footage I look like I'm 50 years old. I'm 30. I'm like a size 2. People tell me I'm so much prettier in person. TV makes you look so much different. I'm working on shooting a cover of Playboy. I guess 30 ain't that bad.
Will you do another season?
Absolutely. Given the opportunity, I want people to see more of my true character.
It's cheesy. It's entertainment. People take stuff to heart. Can you believe I'm the only white woman on the show? I don't even see it that way. It's never been an issue; with the girls or I. it just is what it is. They picked the blond one too. About as white as you can get. It's been a great experience. I don't regret it at all.
And you can hear her 'singing' by clicking HERE
Beyonce continues to release forgettable hits with the next set "Diva' and "Halo." It was suppose to be "Ego" but negro stations got a hold of "Diva' and are playing it (mainly because it's a rip off of an old favorite 'a millie'). Here she is on the set of Diva and from the looks of things PS is ready to project a new Queen of Pop and Circumstance....Rihanna 'Pon da Forehead' Fenty.
"You know, I love him. He's such an amazing man and he's my best friend and he's been so great to me and so loyal," Hilton said Friday on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS F.M. radio show. "He's an incredible person. We'll always be very close. We'll see what happens in the future."
"We're both working so much," she told Seacrest. "There are all these reports saying that I dumped Benji. That's not true. This was a decision we made together as two adults."
"He's doing great. We talk every day. We see each other."
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has been secretly cheating on his wife for years in a steamy love affair with a blonde mistress, a British tabloid newspaper has claimed. The married father-of-four was photographed by the News of the World leaving a London hotel last week after what the newspaper says was a sexual liaison with his lover, Sarah Symonds.

Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford. Just No.
Madge, we aren't in our 20s anymore
Gossip Girl's Blake Lively looking like she just left the farm and hit the Vogue charity event. **shakes head**
Seriously Blake, twice in one week? You are falling off.

New Ryan Leslie f/ Fab. Love the song. Video review to come...
Contender for best video of the year Solange "Tony." The song was okay but I didn't feel the authenticity until this video. Yes it still jacks Amy Whinehouse rehab video with all the band members on the stoop and the simplicity....but it has it's own very clever spin. A clear take on her personal life. An honest depiction of love gone bad and the aftermath..... I may start liking Solange again. BRILLIANT VIDEO
Robin Thicke - The Sweetest Love. This is just beautiful. SHouts to Robin for reppin more black women than all the rappers on TV
Is this a video or a cigar ad? She looks beautiful but I can't stand to see this girl move. She just needs to stand/sit/lay there. Timberfake wrote this and is the leading man in the video. She should have just had Chris in this. The stills showed more chemistry. In all, the video is okay. I expected more flame and chemistry.
Jeezy "Crazy World" Review to come
Mya "Paradise" for album coming out in Japan only December 2nd.....HOT AZZ MESS
ColdPlay f/ Jay Z "Lost" Review to Come
John Legend "Knows Best" Review to come
Keri Hilson "Turning Me On." Cute
[ON IF SHE THINKS SHE LOST HER CHILDHOOD]
only did the [Micky Mouse]show for two years, and for six months out of each year I was at home all the time. I had a wonderful childhood I was probably in my tenth year of school when I left to record my album - so I did the whole prom thing and played on the basketball team. There are some kids in show business who are always in New York and constantly going to audition, but I was fortunate it wasn’t like that for me.
[ON WHY SHE NEVER ACCEPTED THE ROLE MODEL TITLE]
Because I make mistakes. If I do something wrong, I don’t want teenagers to feel like they should go out and do that as well. If you’re a role model, that’s what happens. I'm human.
[I'd rather insipre people] If they have some talent, whether it be singing, dancing, acting or whatever, and God has given them that gift then they should go for it and let the world see it.
[BEST GIFT FROM JUSTIN]
For my birthday, he gave me a diamond music box that I wore around my neck. When you open it, there’s a diamond pink bee. It’s very pretty.
[HOW SHE WOULD WANT TO BE REMEMBERED]
That I was just able to put a smile on people’s faces. That saw me in a movie and they left the movie theater feeling good, or they saw me dancing and it inspired them.
[ON HER MARRIAGE]
"I think I married for all the wrong reasons...Instead of following my heart and, like, doing something that made me really happy. I just did it because ... for just, like, the idea of everything."

Blogs are speculating as to why the push back. Some are hating and making up ish, others have true contacts and are getting more pertinant info. Gyant from SOHH spoke to a Jive rep who says Ciara is pretty much recording a new album from scratch. It will not include the so called 'buzz single' go girl either. It may even have a new title and concept. My speculations below could still be the reason and this seems to be a good idea. This way her old team can't spoil anything by leaking songs because the whole process will be start and finish with her current team and management.
Regardless my own sources say they almost gaurantee she will release the album spring 2009 if not sooner.
My sentiments below remain the same on this matter.
Who does this bish think she is, Lil Wayne?
This album was originally due in June 2008, then they said September 2008, then they said November 2008, then they said December 2008, then they said first quarter 2009, now I'm hearing Spring 2009. This makes it one year since it was originally suppose to release and over 2 years since her last album. The reasons are numerous:
1. Some songs are now over a year old
2. Since she dropped her last management about 10 songs from her album has leaked. Coincidence? So far I've heard high price, work, supernatural, xplode, lover's thing, keep dancing (can all be searched on youtube). The label sent Ciara back in the studio for the next 3 months to revamp so that it's not a bunch of old leaked songs.
3. The single, which the label is now calling a buzz single "Go Girl" peaked at a modest No. 78 on the all important Hot 100, although it fared a little better on the urban charts. Not the standard of her previous top 10 across the board singles.
4. All the people who were suppose to come out in December also pushed back to the top of 2009 including 50 cent, and Eminem, which defeats the purpose being the only hot shot debuting.
5. Her label is currently focused on the Britney project.
Well she can now prepare for some blog hate and doubts. We all know what happened to Mya and Nivea...they got pushed back indefinately. But I'm sure Ci has more weight than that. Personally, I suppose it's not the end of the world but next time I suggest she and her label keep their mouths shut before saying they are going to come out with something they are not 100% ready to push regardless....
It's splitsville for Paris Hilton and Benji Madden. Days after Paris was "all over" her ex Stavros Niarchos, the heiress dropped the Good Charlotte rocker like a bad habit, telling him he was "too controlling" and that she needed her freedom back
In other news:
50 is set to appear in '13,' a remake of Gela Babluani's 2005 film '13 Tzameti,' alongside Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham. The film, which centers around a stolen package, mistaken identity and an underground game of Russian roulette, was originally shot in French, but has been rewritten in English by the Georgian-born director, and will begin shooting in New York in mid-November.

LISTEN TO INTERVIEW WITH ED LOVER
“There’s no excitement, there’s no passion,” Britney is quoted as saying in the documentary by The Sun.
“I have really good days, and then I have bad days. Even when you go to jail you know there’s the time when you’re gonna get out.
“But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day every day.”
Britney, who was placed under a conservatorship by a California court in February after a public meltdown, longs to be liberated.
“I think it’s too in control. If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under, I’d feel so liberated. When I tell them the way I feel, it’s like they hear but they’re really not listening.
“If you do something wrong in your work, you can move on, but I’m having to pay for a long time.
“I never wanted to become one of those prisoner people. I always wanted to feel free.”
Is this another Anna Nicole waiting to happen?

Rihanna managed to release 8 singles which debuted on the Hot 100 charts within the past 1 year and 7 months. Shania Twain was the last person to do this but in a longer period of time. Although her record included a rerelease, it is all recorded as coming from one album. The singles are below:
“Good Girl Gone Bad,” in chronological order:
“Umbrella,” No. 1 for seven weeks (2007) [Rihanna featuring Jay-Z]
“Shut Up and Drive,” No. 15 (2007)
“Hate That I Love You,” No. 7 (2007) [Rihanna featuring Ne-Yo]
“Don’t Stop the Music,” No. 3 (2008)
“Take a Bow,” No. 1 for one week (2008)
“If I Never See Your Face Again,” No. 51 (2008) [Maroon 5 featuring Rihanna]
“Disturbia,” No. 1 for two weeks (2008)
“Rehab,” No. 91 to date (2008)
Unlike Shania however, she hasn't come close to selling the amount of albums she should have. Shania did 10 million in the US alone. Rihanna has done 1.8 in the US totals 5 million world wide.
[ON ALBUM PUSH BACK]
"I decided to push the record back because I have so much more that I want to offer the public as a part of my presentation before I get to actually releasing it," 50 said.
"In hip-hop music the big bang comes the first week," he explained. "If you set a stronger impression out in the front you can actually win big because people understand that its good enough for them to go out and get it. Hip-Hop artists don't make it to single four if their project isn't successful. They have to hit with the first record."
"This record, 'Get Up' is actually performing better at radio than 'I Get Money,' than records that I felt like was dead right," he said. "So I gotta say that I'm in a good space. I'm just not in a hurry to actually put the record out. I want it to be perfect."
Negroes may disagree because it's getting more play on crossover as oppose to "I Get Money" which mainly got play on urban....but he's right it is climbing the charts.
[ON DONALD TRUMP SAYING HIS REALITY SHOW WILL FAIL BECAUSE HE'S COPYING HIM]
"I sat and I thought about what he said and I was like you know what is he crazy talking about my show ain't gonna be as successful? If you check the ratings right now I'm the number one television show on MTV, " 50 boasted. "But then I thought about it and I said he's right, I'm not Donald Trump so I'm fine with his statements. He's still a friend of mine."
Gotta love the kids. Off all the things she could have wished for.....? But anyway, it's great of Cici to try to clean up her image from her recent scandalous rondaveous as of late. But I see she's showing the girl how to hump...**shakes my head**
NEW YORK - A perfume company is claiming Prince and his music publisher failed to honor a contract to help market a fragrance named for the album “3121.”
The breach-of-contract lawsuit was filed Monday by Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics Inc. in New York. The company says it licensed Prince’s name, likeness and the album title “3121” to market its fragrance.
Revelations says it spent $2.5 million and agreed to pay Universal half of net profits from sales of the perfume. But it claims Universal and Prince haven’t participated in various promotions since the frangrance launch in July 2007.
Universal spokesman Peter LoFrumento calls the claims “completely without merit.” Prince’s music studio in Chanhassen, Minn., did not answer several calls.
