Chanel Iman and A$AP Rocky are likely one of two things: engaged to be married or completely done as a couple. A source claims that the rapper proposed to the model and that she happily accepted the proposal. However, A$AP has been talking reckless on Twitter and shouting out his ex-girlfriend, rapper and Charli Baltimore voice and flow impersonator, Iggy Azalea. Iggy has a man, though, so whatever. I got nothing else. Good luck, children. [Page Six]
Kandi Burruss is married, but Mama Joyce is still salty about it. In a recent interview, the singer and reality star’s mom said of her marriage to Todd Tucker: "Long as she's happy, that's the one that has to be happy. Doesn't make no difference if I'm happy or not, she's the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she's jumping in the river with sharks, she's gonna get chewed up."
And oh, she may write a tell-all: "People been asking me about one, so I think I will write one." I wonder if these people are kin to her. Either way, I didn’t want to see so much of her sabotaging efforts, so I definitely won’t be reading it. [Too Fab]
Speaking of embarrassing relationships in Kandi’s life, word is Fantasia got too loose at the tongue (and maybe blood alcohol levels) at the wedding. A source says the toast went a lil’ something like this: “Fantasia started by saying, ‘Kandi, you are my m*therf**kin’ friend and I love you. Then she called Kandi the ‘realest b*tch I know’ and rambled on about her big butt. Todd was furious, and the other bridesmaids got Fantasia to sit down. Thank goodness!” I can totally see this all happening. No shade, Fantasia. [Radar]
Jamie Foxx has not minced words about having a rocky relationship with his biological parents – who happened him when he was seven-months-old.
On those efforts to have a relationship now: "We're trying to learn [about] each other. The one thing I think is great [about my mother being] in the same house, because you realise certain things that you missed when you were growing up, like, 'Oh, I do that because of that,' or, 'Oh, I do this because of that.' It's profound."
As for his father: "We're trying to learn [about] each other. The one thing I think is great [about my mother being] in the same house, because you realise certain things that you missed when you were growing up, like, 'Oh, I do that because of that,' or, 'Oh, I do this because of that.' It's profound." [Rhymes With Snitch]
There are rumors that Draya Michele has quit Basketball Wives LA following these tweets airing after Monday’s episode: “Feels like a tremendous weight has been lifted from my shoulders…Won’t catch me arguing with the chicks I made semi-famous any longer. They gonna have to carry themselves or fight with each other …You crown your enemy queen when you start responding to their fans. Lol.”
More, the alleged quitting has caused friction between she and Shaunie O’Neal, though Draya did note on Twitter following reports: “Despite what blogs may report… I have nothing but love & the up most respect for Shaunie Oneal … How could I not, she gave me a chance.”
I recall Draya mentioning that she signed a five-season agreement with VH1, so I don’t see her leaving, though I certainly can understand why she would want to. [The Jasmine Brand]
The tabloids are trying to break up the presumably happy home of Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy. According to some gossips, Nicole got “way too friendly” and behaved like a “groupie” with one of Beyoncé’s backup dancers. And then: “The first thing Nicole did was tell Michael the story was absolutely not true. But certainly Michael was stunned.” In other words, Nicole Murphy’s show, Hollywood Exes, kicks off its new season in a few months. Nicole is so pretty. Carry on. [The National Enquirer]
So Porsha Williams sang a song called “Perfectly Worthless” on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and the track’s producer is not amused.
Through Pierre Medor’s rep: In the business more than one artist will record the same song hoping for the right outcome, as was the case with ‘Perfectly Worthless.’ Porsha Stewart wanted a song, Pierre Medor wrote and produced this song in its entirety. Not having any previous point of reference for Porsha, we initially recorded the song for the purpose of determining her vocal abilities and how they would fit with this particular song; it was quickly determined that this song wasn’t the best match for her, so we chose not to sell her the song and notified her management of our decision.
‘Perfectly Worthless’ is a great song and she loves it…we get that. But just like every body doesn’t look good in spandex, every voice doesn’t fit every song. It’s just unfortunate that Porsha has chosen to create another delusional marriage with this song by airing it and claiming to have taken part in its creation.
In other words, you agreed to film on the show and now you want to capitalize on that by throwing her under the bus? Great. Meanwhile, he sold the song to Syleena Johnson. [The YBF]
A 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll finds that most of their users believe hip hop has peaked and that jazz is a far more important genre of music. Heavens to Betsey, let me alert my entire existence based on what old White people think of a genre of music them and many of their offspring are responsible for soiling. No offense to you, though, Eminem. [Hip Hop DX]
Master P’s wife Sonya Miller claims the rapper adducted their children. Well, two of them anyway. The 17-year-old apparently went to live with P on her own. As for the other two, he allegedly scooped them up from school Someone call the laws and Iyanla Vanzant. I don’t want to think of Mr. and Mrs Ice Cream Man this way. [Necole Bitchie]
And lastly, while there may be sites out there called “Poor Michelle,” the Destiny’s Child singer ain’t worried ‘bout any of us. As she recalls her most embarrassing DC moments, Michelle Williams explains that no matter what, we’re talking about her and that keeps her pockets full. That, friends, is the way Christian women read. [Time]
