Oh, you thought we’ve heard the worst of 50cent’s twitter page last week? Nope. Our favorite shit talker has provided the perfect description for Sean Puffy Combs…

and I quote, “Puffys a fun boy a happy man, a fruit loop a lucky charm a skittle chase the rainbow lolSept 6! Mayhem” about 2 hours ago via ÜberTwitter

He also has some excellent sex advice for women, but I’m too much of a prude to post.

Recap. Ochocinco’s: the Ultimate Catch-"Meet the Family"

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

     

So now it’s down to the Final Four (Rubi, Tiphani, Brittany, Tara) and Chad takes all of them to Miami to meet his family. The show opens up with the ladies arriving in Miami, where they are escorted up to the room where a message from Chad awaits them. He wants to show them a side of him they’ve never seen before and also for a little “family reunion”. Uh oh, is New York going to come and shake things up?    

   

 Naaah, he introduces his brothers Bo (SEXY ASS HERSHEY BAR OF GOODNESS!) , Junior and childhood friend Rashad. The girls and Chad’s family are all chatting when the question is posed “Who’s the least liked in the house”–Rubi just puts Tara all the way on blast. I mean, the guns came out and Rubi, Tiphani and Brittany all hit her with the load, cock, aim and shoot! At this point, it’s clear to Chad that he may have made the wrong decisions because Tara’s same personality issues come up over and over again. (…Ocho, you said you were going to play the fool! Deal with it!…)  

Anyway, he has the girls talk to his brothers one on one, but both Rubi and Brittany use the opportunity to bash Tara instead of talking about themselves. Tara just sticks to her guns and continues to be her sarcastic entertaining self.  He then pulls his brothers to the side and asks them how they felt about the girls. They share that Brittany’s cool, Tiphani’s too quiet, Rubi is family oriented and Bo (Mr. Hershey Goodness), just flat-out tells Ocho that Tara’s full of shit (his words EXACTLY!). All the brothers agree that it’s nothing serious about her! Chad is finally taking into consideration that he made the wrong decision by keeping Tara. (…I mean, we all know you kept her comedic purposes! Plus the girl wants her own show…)   

So at the girl’s suite Brittany is getting sick with migraines and Rubi is trying to make sure she’s on top of her game to beat out Tara. (…Yea Brittany Ima need you to get it together babes…)Anyway, Ocho comes to the suite to take care of some unfinished business, Tara. (…I’m so sick of this damn girl….) He takes her for an alone date and lets her know that he needs to see the more serious side of her. (…Ninja you’ve asked her that several times and she still had not stopped her antics!…)   

Chad's Mother

Meanwhile, back at the suite the girls get a knock on the door and who is it? Momma Johnson!!! Duhn duhn duuuuuhn! The moment we’ve all been waiting for! Since Brittany is sick, she takes Rubi and Tiphani out to dinner at Phillipe. Momma Johnson jumps right in and asks why the girls are here and who they are. Tiphani is failing horribly! Stumbling over words, half assed answer and not opening up at all! Momma Johnson keeps it real and lets them know she had 4 grandbabies and asks them how they would incorporate them into their lives. After this whole conversation, Rubi just may be the one for Chad.     

Chad and Tara

 

Back at the one-on-one date with Tara, Chad lets her know he likes her a lot and can wake up to her every morning. It bothers him that she still is unable to be serious with him and that he’s not getting what he’s looking for. He feels it’s all been a joke for her and is not what she wants. FINALLY, HE SENDS THAT ASS HOME!!!!! Tara admitted in her interview that he wasn’t what she was looking for and vice versa and wished Rubi and Brittany all types of STDS. Still comical to the very end.     

Rubi

 

After his mom’s dinner with Rubi and Tiphani, he meets up with Momma Johnson to debrief. He lets her know off top that he got rid of Tara because she wasn’t serious. (…On the low, I think he got rid of her because he knew that his mother would rip her a new one! I would have LOVED to see those two at dinner!…) Anyway, he asks him how these women are going to advance his life. She feels Tiphani is too young and the kids may be too much for her. She obviously likes Rubi, but her “floozy” like wardrobe is not working for her!     

     

Before eliminations, Chad let’s the girls know that he eliminated Tara because he was just tired of her. He was sad to say that he was going to have to eliminate Rubi or Tiphani. Brittany is safe because Tara was her match up.     

Tiphani

 

At eliminations, he eliminates Tiphani because she’s too young and he has to go with his heart. He’s feeling Rubi more and loves the fact that she’s family oriented. The final match-up is set! It’s Rubi vs Brittany. I mean sorry y’all, but it’s VERY clear who he’s going to pick next week (..Although we hear his real-life love interest is Basketball Wives’ Evelyn…) I’ve seen it throughout this entire season. But, you’ll have to check back next week for the final recap of Ochocinco’s Ultimate Catch!

I love Ashton and Demi together as a couple…matter of fact, in my mind, they’re like the white version of Beyonce & Jay-Z. Occasionally, we hear them discuss their relationship, but for the most part, they don’t have much to say.

Usher on Ex-Wife, "We just couldn't be married."

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

Although most of us are kinda over the Usher/Tameka “break-up,” Usher is still opening up to a few media outlets and giving us a few additional snippets on why it didn’t work.

He told People, “Even though it didn’t work out, I’m glad we got together. I love her as the mother of my children; we just couldn’t be married. We’re two different people and we have two different goals. It just was never going to work out 100 percent.”

Usher and Tameka have two children-Usher V, who turns 3 years old this year and two month old, Naviyd. “We had to put our issues aside and focus on raising them. There will never be another mother for my sons, and I’ll always be their father.”

Adult Content…Stripper Love! NFL Show's Maliah Love

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

Over here at The Jasmine Brand, we don’t discriminate against any profession. And neither does Houston. Our intel was down at Houston’s Dreams last night, which is a gentleman’s club, and tells us that the dancers received crazy monetary love. Why, you may ask? Because popular dancer Maliah was in the building….Maliah was featured in Drake’s “Find Your Love” video. They were also rumored to be dating.

My girl tells me that the Cowboys and Texans were in the building and took care of Maliah and the other girls in a major way. Like “major” “major.”

Maliah tweeted this morning, “Oh I can’t forget the rest of the Texans and Cowboys that came through xoxo…It took me so long to count my money last night I had to gather myself before I could S/O :o)”

From my understanding, Maliah was an ex-stripper, but maybe she dances occasionally. I don’t know. Anywho, we love her and think she’s adorable (as do the Texans and Cowboys ;-)

(…My girl gave specific names of players that were very gracious w/ those $$$, but y’all know me better than that…dropping specific names, #nobueno!!!….unless you wanna pay for my Security…)

Rihanna has taken full control of her twitter page and announced, “So now that i finally took over my Twitter page no more corny label tweets……lol! whaaasssuupppp ppl!!!!!” I’m hoping she throws a few subliminal Chris Brown tweets…

Also, Rihanna recently went red. Looks like she grew it out. Check out this twitpic that she took showing off the length, her curling iron burn and her 5-head (her words…not mine…)…She tweeted, “New hair….new curling iron BURN……damn 5head always in the way.”

Lauryn Hill Punks DC’s “Rock the Bells” Concert, Brings Nas, Q-Tip Strips

Compliments of @DJCuzzinB

 

 “Rock the Bells” is literally going down right now…so stay tuned and I’ll update you when I can. Photos and videos posted throughout the evening…     

KRS-One literally hit the stage, rhyming he is “hip-hop, not rap”…DJ Premiere did a mix in honor of the late Guru, but his set was way too short. He only played 5 songs. 9th Wonder, pictured below, was spotted signing autographs to fans.     

9th Wonder Signing Autographs, C/O @Liftedresearch

 

Michael Eric Dyson & 9th C/O @djcuzzinb

Folks waited for an entire hour for Lauryn Hill, the show’s headliner, to show up. At one point, they brought a DJ out to entertain the crowd and a few minutes ago, they started breaking down the equipment for her set. Folks are booing @ this point. Hopefully, they’re just putting together a new set for Ms. Hill–doesn’t sound like it though. An announcer just came out and said that Lauryn Hill was “sick and unable to make it.” Folks are saying that her band was actually in attendance, but she wasn’t.     

Apparently, Talib Kweli was getting pissed at DC folks being all pissy about Lauryn being a “no show.” He tweeted, “Regardless of the money u spent on RTB tix, you will miss Lauryn when she’s gone. So respect her …Rock The Bells is not the Lauryn Hill show. She is one of many great artists on the bill. Show the rest of them love, enjoy.”     

Q-Tip C/O @djcuzzinb

Moving right along, A Tribe Called Quest is on now, minus Fife Dog who’s MIA, due to diabetes complications…Q-Tip stripped down to his boxers while performing…(…wait til I get this pic up ;-)…) and Busta Rhymes hopped on stage. Crowd went bananas.     

L-Boogie C/O @djcuzzinb

Surprise, surprise, surprise…guess who shows up? 

Lauryn Hill rocking a Yankee’s hat, brings out NAS!!!! Folks were waiting for Wu to show up and L-Boogie jumps on stage!!! Nas and Lauryn performed “If I Ruled the World.”   Here’s the video performance: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glqzs63rkuY&feature=player_embedded]

Where’s the after party? We hear True School is throwing something @ Funxion and Snoop’s hosting Stadium via eVIPlist.     

Special thanks to my intel, TK King!
