I think it’s pretty clear that Nicki Minaj reminds us of Lil Kim. It’s safe to say that Lil Kim thinks Minaj reminds her of herself as well. Peep the video, compliments of Miss Jia, of Ray J and Lil Kim having a few words for Minaj…

My favorite line? “If you don’t respect me then f-ck you.”

Erykah Badu graces Vibe. Peep what she has to say via vibe.com:

“I look at some other videos. I’m not naming names, because I don’t want that to be mentioned. There is the thing with sexuality. I’m naked for 13 seconds, and these people are naked the whole time and gyrating and saying come “lick on my lollipop,” and “suck on my cinnamon roll,” and, you know, suggesting sex. People are uncomfortable with sexuality that’s not for male consumption. Could be ‘cause I did it in public too. Do you think people would have been complaining if I had on high-heel shoes?”

“I was 27 when I had Seven. I was already a vegetarian. I had been for 10 years. I had started making choices that would shape me for the rest of my life. I never thought to measure by each child. My children are six years apart. It wasn’t planned, just how the relationships rolled out. I’ve had three unorthodox marriages of sorts. I’ve had the benefit of having substantial amount of time with people, mind-building time.”

(((It’s a bit wack that she has to validate why she chose to have children outside of marriage. Men have children outside of marriage and relationships all of the time, without question. Have babies, take care of them and be happy.)))

Compliments of http://www.thegrio.com/assets_c/2010/03/tyler-perrys-decision-to-direct-for-colored-girls-produces-mixed-feelings-thumb-400xauto-8082.jpg

As reported, Mariah Carey dropped out of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf.” Here’s what Tyler Perry had to say on his web site: 

“Anyway, I’m there on vacation, celebrating life, thanking God and just relaxing when I get a message that I have to come home, that Mariah has dropped out of the film!  I said “What?  You’re kidding?  It’s five days before she has to go to work, nobody does that. We have a deal.  IT’S FIVE DAYS BEFORE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO GO TO WORK!  So, I got on the plane and came home and started trying to re-cast this major role in the film.

I land and get to the studio, and I’m like, what happened?  I was told that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said “What? You know I want a doctor’s note, don’t you?!”…LOL

But to tell you the truth, I don’t know what that means and, unlike the tabloids, I won’t speculate.  All I know is that I’m waiting just like the rest of the world to find out what happened.

In spite of this, what you need to know is that I am a huge Mariah Carey fan and always will be.  What I do know of the woman is that she is a professional and wouldn’t back out of a deal unless it was a major issue.  So, whatever is going on, I wish her and Nick the best, and she has all my love, prayers and support.  I just wish I could have finished my Mai Tai before I had to get back and re-cast this role!”

Dwayne Wade Granted Temporary Custody of Sons

According to Black Voices, Dwayne Wade has been granted temporary custody of his two sons. 

NBA star Dwyane Wade’s divorce just got a little bit uglier. This week, the court gave Wade custody of his two sons, citing his wife’s failure to obey court rules as part of the reason. Wade was given “physical possession” by the judge, who resides in Chicago. This was a day after Wade settled four civil suits that had been brought against him by former business partners on matters unrelated to his divorce.

The court cited Wade’s wife, Siohvaughn, and found that the player’s ability to see his children “has been frustrated on an ongoing basis as a result of continual interference” by his estranged spouse. There were three instances referenced, one in March and two in May, where Wade’s visitation times had been altered and another time when his wife would not open the gate when he came to pick up his kids.

“The Court is troubled by the continuing pattern of (Siohvaughn Wade) to obey court orders when they go her way and disobey court orders when they do not,” wrote Associate Judge Fe Fernandez.

Wade is seeking full custody of his sons in the divorce. Another hearing is scheduled for later this month. Full story here.

Peep, a sneak preview of “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.” What’s funny about this clip is the two sisters are arguing/cursing each other out and Kim is just standing w/ a blank stare. Peep the video: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aveir-wkwo&feature=player_embedded]

“Oh I forgot you’re such a mom. You’re so perfect now, you’ve never been drunk. You used to be the party queen of life, so shut the f*ck up, you hypocrite,” Khloe said.

Typical sibling arguments. Effin hilarious.

Jennifer Williams of Basketball Wives on Castmates, Wives Sticking Together

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Jennifer Williams, of “Basketball Wives,” blogs on her cast mates and why basketball wives should stick together.  

“Basketball wives should stick together because of the fact that we’re all going through a similar situation. It’s not something you can explain to someone unless you’re going through it. That support system is needed where you can call the next wife [because] sometimes you just need someone to talk to and get your emotions out?not even just basketball wives but with anything. When you have a friend or someone you can talk to that’s going through a similar situation it just makes things a lot easier.

Royce was the newest bond I made from the show, and I kind of knew Suzie before but I got to know her better. As far as Evelyn and I, we’ve been through so much over the past 10 years so it’s just another experience under our belt. Gloria has issues with a lot of the castmates like Royce, Suzie and obviously Shaunie because of the situation with her sister, so she is definitely the black sheep.

I just feel like [Gloria] is so into trying to portray that she has this perfect life. I think that was her whole purpose of being on the show, which it’s whatever but I just feel like she doesn’t really come across as being real. I don’t have a major beef with her. I don’t like some of her ways but if I see her again I’ll be cordial. When you get thrown into the show this whole reality world none of us know what to expect. But at the same time I think we were all really real and open to our situation, and I just feel like [Gloria] wasn’t 100% honest.”

In other news, we can expect a second season of “Basketball Wives”–minus Gloria Govan. I’m sure they are already vetting for her replacement. Here for her full blog.
