Dear Bobby Shmurda,

I have danced to your song “Hot Nigga.” It’s on my iPod and I love when it plays. What does this mean? It means that I enjoy a catchy beat, a nice flow and even better, a fun dance to complement it. However, for a while, I didn’t know that you were rapping about murdering people. I was simply lured in by your beat, flow and dance alone. The lyrics were dissonance: mere noise that did not register in my mind. Though mainstream rap is often frowned upon, not all the time am I compelled to listen to politically conscious music like Common and Mos Def (though I adore them both, and also have them on my iPod). Sometimes I want to simply hear a beat, hear some words that flow and dance without digesting or internalizing the lyrics. However one day…

What happens when you act like a Diva off set, when you are on a show called R&B Diva’s? You just might get fired. SMDH! How do you get fired for doing what you were hired to do? Allegedly R&B Diva Claudette Ortiz was let go from R&B Diva’s for outrageous demands. Blogger Funky Dineva has the inside scoop on everything so here is what he had to say on this matter…….

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. 

What is Claudette going to do? Before this show, she was really a non-factor. Her days with City High have come and gone. We didn’t hear one note coming from her. Although her story line is kind of boring. I was happy to see her on the show, because we always wondered what happened to her. I hope she does not find herself sinking back in the hole, she needs to find a way to stay relevant. Celebrity Apprentice call Claudette for next season, please.



Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice have gone to court and met their fate. The reality stars will serve jail time for committing bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud. Teresa has been ordered to serve 15 months in jail and Joe will serve 3 years in jail. The couple also has to pay over $400,000.00 in restitution. The couple knew they were going to face jail time and they did not put enough effort into trying to stay out of jail for their 4 lovely daughters. The couple showed up to court and did not submit over $75,000.00 in purchases. The Giudice’s were supposed to have there probation reports filled out thoroughly, but that never happened. In the end of all of this, the kids are the ones who will suffer the most.

Real Housewives of Atlanta husband Apollo Nida, has left his wife and kids at home and turned himself in to federal prison. Before doing so Apollo picked a fight with Phaedra. In the trailer for the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta you can see Apollo and Phaedra falling out before he goes to jail. Phaedra looks afraid for her life and was quick to call the cops on him.

First lets congratulate the Love and Hip Hop reality stars Yandy and Mandeecee’s on staying together through out Mandeecee’s jail time. Also congrats are in order because the couple is pregnant with their second child. Which is rumored to be a girl. The couple have not announced a due date. I would guess that Yandy is probably 5 months. Mandeecee was released from jail back in April 2014. He has been home for 6 months and I see he wasted no time getting a baby in the oven. Congrats!


So the Real Housewives of Atlanta is ready to come back with their drama. Before the shows premiere date even gets here, cast mate Porsha announced that she will not be returning to RHOA. Porsha was demoted to a part-time cast member because the other ladies story line’s were getting better and Porsha’s story line literally hit the flatline.

I really do not agree with the decision to demote her. Porsha has a new exciting job with the tv show Dish Nation and she is on fire in the studio with her colleagues. Oh well.

Checkout the trailer for season 7 of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. Premiering Sunday November 9th on BRAVO.






Last Friday while standing on a long line to see a live taping of The View I was hoping I was going to see a wonderful show. Standing in the rain for an hour was a pain, but I would do anything for Whoopi. My BFF joined me and we made the best of it. When we were finally loaded inside we were greeted by some overly cheery staff members. For a second I thought I was at Disney World. We were given a bag of Chex mix popcorn and a bottle of apple juice. That popcorn was slamming!  Finally the show started and the ladies were great. Michael Strahan was a guest, which I still do not understand why. He was not promoting anything and he definitely didn’t tell us anything I didn’t know about him already. Well at least he looked nice, that man is handsome.  During the commercial break Rosie and Whoopi answered a few questions.  They were really cool. Anyway once the show was over I was telling my friend I like the chemistry the ladies have on the set. They seem to work well together.

So today when I heard that Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi had an argument in front of the audience during the commercial break, I said no way. No WAY DID THESE HEFFA’S ARGUE AND I WAS NOT THERE TO SEE IT SO I COULD REPORT IT TO ALL OF YOU IMMEDIATELY. So here is what happened.

Whoopi was cuing Rosie that they had to go to a commercial break. Whoopi wears an ear piece so she can hear what they are saying in the control room. Rosie refuses to wear one. So as I was saying Whoopi was telling Rosie that they had to go to a commercial break and Rosie was cut off immediately. Instead of letting it go, Rosie decided to talk about it during the commercial break. Rosie told Whoopi that her feelings were hurt. Whoopi said this is not the time to talk about this. Rosie insist on talking about it,  then Whoopi said  Fuck it. I told you to leave it alone and you just won’t listen. I’m really sick of your shit.

What does this mean for the future of The View?
