Baby Mamas Cashing In

Let's see who's taking their baby daddy to the cleaners:

Norma Mitchell is taking ex-hubby Tyrese Gibson to the cleaners, stating that his current child support payment of $8,500 a month isn't enough.

The London beauty claims that when she and Tyrese married she was unemployed and living in the U.S. on a travelers visa. Tyrese funded all of her expenses until they divorced last year, leaving her completely broke.

Norma and Tyrese share a beautiful baby girl named Shayla. According to Norma, Tyrese has high expectations and standards for Shayla, wanting her to have the best of everything and not wear the same outfit twice. keep up with that demand, Norma is requesting more money....more money....more money!!!!!

Next on the list of baby mama's cashing in, is supermodel and designer Kimora Lee Simmons, ex-wife of mogul Russell Simmons, who will receive a whopping $40,000 a month in child support for their two daughters Ming Lee and Aoki Lee. Russell took pride in stating that the court did NOT 'order' him to pay that amount, but instead that's the what he offered. Russell wants his children to maintain a 'fabulous life' as he describes it, and as long as he has it, they will too. Sounds like a good dad!!!!

Last but not least, is Lisa Lu Hartwell of Real Housewives of Atlanta, who is trying to taking ex-hubby Keith Sweat to the cleaners..... but it doesn't look like she'll be cashing in on anything. Lisa and Keith divorced in 2003 and Keith won primary custody of their two children Justin and Jordon.

In recent news, Lisa is suing Kieth for the custody of the boys and for child support. It's no wonder why Lisa is pressing the issue of custody, since her new hubby former NFL player Ed Hartwell is out of work and their real estate business is kiss the lips of bankruptcy.

In a court hearing this past Tuesday, the judge stated that Lisa has a history of spending money on herself excessively rather than providing for the children … OUCH! And Lisa's allegations of Keith being abusive toward her doesn't prove that he's abusive toward the children or is an unfit parent.

Well.....I guess everyone isn't a winner, and Kieth surely had his head on straight when he divorced this gold digger.....hopefully things work out best for this kids.

Lawyer Quits Hudson Case

William Balfour, suspect in custody for the triple slaying of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and Nephew has lost his public defender, lawyer Joshua Kutnick.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Kutnick says he believes "Balfour is innocent but cannot financially support such a high-profile case alone."

Balfour has pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree murder and one count of home invasion. Kutnick said there is no forensic evidence linking his former client to the killings.

Balfour is expected to be appointed a new public defender sometime this afternoon.

Beyoncé Performed at the Academy Awards......

...and ripped the stage with several ballads from multiple musical productions. When I saw her appear on the red carpet I was a little confused as to why she was there.....wearing a hideous dress that looked like a sofa print from the 1970's......

But anyway....Mrs. Carter did what she does best...sing.... I absolutely love Beyoncé and think she's one of the most talented MUSIC artists in the industry. While its admirable of her to strives in other areas of entertainment, such as acting, I think she should keep her day job and leave the acting to the actors....

The Dream's New Album....

"Love v/s Money" is set to release March 10, 2009. As much as I can't wait to hear the album I hope The Dream didn't make the mistake of mixing "love" with his "money" by featuring his new boo, Christina Milian on the album. As much as I like Christina...she needs to stick to acting and leave the music game alone.

While two look cute together, I don't think their music would have the same effect....but I guess we'll just have to wait and see!!!

Russell Simmons Goes To Wal-Mart

To roll out a new clothing line of men's apparel, "American Classics." From knit and woven shirts, sweater vests, jeans, casual sports shoes and more, consumers can purchase Russell's designs at an affordable price of $10-$30. So fellas, if your trying to get your swag right, but your pockets are a little tight, take a trip to Wal-Mart and see what Russ has for you!!

Madea Goes To Jail a must see....The movie will have you crying and laughing from beginning to end. While the movie seemed a little short (1 hour 45 min) and had a few gaps in the script, the overall film was good.

Tyler Perry film and stage productions always incorporate subliminal messages and real-life situations that everyone can relate to. There's no wonder why his movies and plays do so well. The only thing I miss is the music. The stage productions appear to be better than the movie, in every way, from the script, music and delivery of each message. I love Tyler Perry, but if he's going to use the same story line from his plays to make a movie, then the movie should be better, if not the same as the play.

Needless to say the movie is doing well and has rolled in over $41 million in its opening week. So if you haven't already seen it, don't wait for the DVD or buy it on boot-leg....go the theater and pay your $, you won't be disappointed.


Valentine's Day Haters!!!!!

Here's a little something to cheer you up....If you're like me, you spent Valentine's Day alone, watching T.V. or listening to lovers rock on the radio.....for a moment you felt bad about being alone, not having someone to buy you nice gifts or take you on a lovely date to shower you with love an affection......but the more you thought about said to yourself....LOVE SUCKS!!!!!!

Who wants a broken heart, stress, hurt feelings, lies, disappointment, infidelity, potential mental or physical abuse?

NOT ME!!!! If you're not in love, your not at risk of these things. YOU my friend, are in the safe zone and have little to worry about in comparison to those in the next time those envious feelings emerge when you see a couple happily walking hand-in-hand....

Don't be angry that love is in the air....remember all that glitters isn't gold....most people in relationships aren't always as happy as they appear.

Don't feel bad if you didn't receive are definitely loved by someone, and you don't need a card or flowers to prove it.

Love yourself. No one will EVER love you as much as you love spending Valentine's Day alone is time well spent....Getting to know and loving YOURSELF!!

Chris & Rhianna Saga Continues

......but I'm so tired of it...

I'm not picking sides or making comments about the incident until I see some REAL photos and official statements from authorities. Alot of media outlets are putting there own spin on what they THINK happened between the two stars, but hard evidence has yet to surface.

Regardless of what truly happened, this is definitely a turning point in the relationship and careers of both Chris and Rhianna. I'm big fans of both artists and am sad to see their relationship end this way.

For all the CB fans that were looking forward to seeing his performance at the Grammy's, here's a sneak peak of his rehearsal.....hours before the incident.


Police Brutally Assault Women

The video you're about to see is of a women being beaten by two Philadelphia police officers. The video was captured last year during a traffic violation, when a police officer stopped a woman for riding her bicycle on the side walk (which apparently is against the law). You'll notice the woman pull her bike into the street, in front of the police vehicle, and the officer approach the woman to place her under arrest.

For whatever reason the cop decided to pepper stray the woman, but ends up spraying can't imagine what happens the video to see..

Exclusive: Rick Ross responds to 50

After listening to Rick's response to 50's ongoing shenanigans, I have to agree with everything Rick said...50 is a joke, no matter how much money he makes..... His whole career has been based around beef and bringing down other rappers in the industry. His underground tracks and first album was FIRE....but his attitude as a person is Whack.....

50 obviously has too much time on his hands, to bring Rick's baby mama in the picture....calling Rick's mom the Nutty Professor....that's real high school!!!!! For someone who makes so much money, why is 50 wasting time with nonsense like this???

    50 Cent At It Again

    Raging beef between rappers Rick Ross and 50 Cent is getting out of control. Where the beef me, but it definitely needs to stop before someone gets hurt.

    Apparently Rick said some things about 50 during an interview, and 50 responded with some very threatening comments. Check out 50's response below.

    If that didn't leave a sour taste in Rick's mouth.....50's latest V-blog definitely will. Getting exclusive and extremely personal, 50 interviewed Rick's baby mama Tia, and you'll be surprised to find out that Rick isn't quite the BOSS he claims to be.

    Aside from crushing Rick's reputation as a rapper, lover and a father, 50 took it to the next level by taking Tia on a shopping spree, to show Rick how a real man/Boss treats a lady......I hope this doesn't turn into a Tupac and Faith, or Jay-Z and Carmen (Nas baby mama) situation.....even though Rick & Tia aren't together anymore, you know how men are about their baby mama's......but I guess we'll have to wait and see what's next on "This is 50".....stay tuned.

    P. Diddy Addresses Lil Kim's Frustrations

    Did you hear about Lil Kim's tantrum over her character portrayal in the movie "Notorious?"

    If you didn't, please click here to be updated.

    In response to Kim's accusations, P. Diddy had somethings to say, and from what it sounds like... Puff was dead wrong.

    I haven't seen the movie and can't comment on how Kim was portrayed, but what I can say is that....based on the premiere pictures and the production of the film, Lil Kim was not included.

    I think Puff did a disservice not only to Lil Kim, but Biggie, because if he really wanted to show the life of Biggie, he would include all parties involved, especially Lil Kim.

    Not only that, but why would you paint such an image of Lil Kim and not seek her approval before producing the film? Then.... to add insult to injury, you blog about it and admit you were wrong.......$32million dollars later.....and suggest Kim produce her own version of Biggies life. What an A-hole!!!

    Needless to say Puff still recognized Lil Kim as the Queen and admitted that she was more to Biggie than a jump-off.....Too bad that apology came a little bit too late.....

    New Ciara - "Never Ever"

    Ms. Ciara is definitely heating up the game with her newest song "Never Ever" featuring Young Jeezy....."Never Ever" is the second release off her new album "Fantasy Ride." The track is produced by Polow Da Don and was co-written by Ciara and Elvis “BlacElvis” Williams......

    The video is HOT, I love everything about it....Ciara is absolutely fabulous.....if her abs don't make you wanna drop down and do 50 crunches...then you must be a size 2!!!!

    Check out the video and let me know what you think.....oh, and if your wondering why this song sounds so familiar, remember the hit, "If You Don't Know Me by Now" by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff? Well...they are the original creators....

    Needless to say Ciara put a nice spin on it and definitely made it a Cici track......get 'um Cici!!!!
