Check out Amerie’s new blonde hair.

“One of the things that inspired me are photos I’ve seen of children in the Solomon Islands. They are very brown-skinned, and a lot of them grow white-blonde hair naturally. The contrast in dark skin tone and extremely light hair is really beautiful to me. So I just went for it!” Source.

Soulja Boy is real pissy with Fab and took to twitter last night to throw shade.

Soulja Boy tweeted, “lol fuck that lame ass washed up rapper named fabolous thats a gay ass rap name anyway…thats just how I feel. chicago stand up. fuck that nigga he lame and old I wish that fab would quit copying my swag damn he a nut rider i swear man…”

Fab thinks that someone hacked into Soulja Boy’s account, but maybe dude is still upset about comments from a few weeks ago, when Fab did the whole “stupid-boy-swag” tweet. After Fab learned of the incident when Kat Stacks set-up Soulja Boy in his hotel room, he took to twitter to clown him. Lettin Kat Stacks in ur hotel room alone is #StupidBoySwag.. *All u rappers pay attention, that right there is called #StupidBoySwag* AYYYY….Get out the wayyyyyyyy….stupid boy comin thru…. #StupidBoySwag…Stacks on deck, Kat Stacks on bed, Camera on record, Coke on dresser… #StupidBoySwag

Tiny, "I don't even know what Meth looks like"

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

I don’t now why in the hell Tiny’s responding to people on twitter about the recent arrest of her and husband, T.I., but apparently this person must have hit a nerve.

Some random person on twitter says something about the recent allegations that meth was found in the car when Tiny and T.I. were pulled over last week.

Tiny actually gets pissy and responds, “@totallytaylor25 u da real dummy cause u believe everything u hear! I don’t even no wat meth look like! How bout let’s c what da test say!”

Free advice for Tiny…get off Twitter until this blows (no pun, intended) over. OR, if you must tweet, talk about everything BUT potential charges. Furthermore, who gives a damn what @totallytaylor25 (i hate their twitter name) has to say? I mean, really. Stop it.

Twitter Beef. Who Got Next? Diamond vs. Gyantunplugged

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

Umm, so yeah, I’m not heavy into the Atlanta gossip scene HOWEVER, I did notice a slightly entertaining twitter beef between Atlanta Hip-Hop chica, Diamond, formerly of Crime Mob and entertainment and lifestyle blogger, GyantUnplugged’s Lloyd Dinwiddie.

Apparently, Gyant posted this picture of Diamond implying that she appeared to be pregnant.

In Gyant’s defense, I can sorta, kinda, very so slightly see what perhaps he was seeing, but it clearly was her pose that gave a tiny bump impression. I bet $ that when some ppl saw that  photo, they may have had the same question.

In Diamond’s defense, I’m a woman and the LAST thing I want to be mistaken for is pregnant, when I’m not. When in doubt, say nothing, unless you’re a blogger and that’s what we do ;-) Ask questions. Get answers.

Fast forward—>Diamond see’s Gyant implying that she’s pregnant and sorta lights his @$$ up. Yikes. She tweets, “@GYANTUNPLUGGED u remember when u and ur BOYFRIEND wus sittin next to me at r.kelleys concert here in atl? But u were tryna play it off? LOL…@GYANTUNPLUGGED and all of us have secrets like u being on da downlow..But nobodys against that..#doyathang wut ever floats ya boat boo.. ;)”

Gyant responds with, “@DiamondAtl ur last statement proves you know NOTHING about me. The last thing I am is Downlow anything…@DiamondAtl and if thats ur sad attempt at trying to come for me yuo got to work A LOT harder ..Gyant dont have secrets my life is 100$ open..”

Wendy Williams and GyantUnplugged

It gets even better with Ozone Magazine’s Julia Beverly chiming in on Gyant, “he’ll blog lies about people he doesn’t even know all day long & then be all on their dick (so to speak) in person…”

Julia Beverly

I obviously didn’t post all of their tweets, but you can follow e’rybody involved– @GYANTUNPLUGGED, @DiamondAtl, and @JuliaBeverly.

Night. Night.

Basketball Wives' Evelyn Responds to Chad Rumor (Sorta) + Photos from New Season

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

Basketball Wives’ reality star Evelyn has been semi-tight lipped about the rumor circulating that she’s dating Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson. For the past few weeks, folks have been buzzing that Chad’s reality show, Ochocinco’s: The Ultimate Catch, to find true love was staged, and that in fact Chad was dating Evelyn.

Just today, someone tweeted to Evelyn that they were surprised to see that she didn’t show up on the finale of Chad’s show. And guess what her response was? “Conflict of Interest. bwahahah…”<sarcasm much?

(…I think that all parties involved-outside of Rubi who may be innocently clueless-may be using all of this back and forth for ratings. Season 2 of Basketball Wives airs in December, so the timing is perfect. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chad and Evelyn staged subliminal tweets and staged dates for attention. Don’t get me wrong, I do think that something is going on between the two-Chad and Eve-I just think it’s EXTRA convenient…)

Update—> After I posted this story, Evelyn tweeted back, “You pay close attention…muah!” Obviously, some-probably not all-part of our perspective is true ;-) Guess we hafta tune in.

Sidebar: I’m really starting to think our girl Rubi, has no clue. Or maybe she’s not as naive as she looks?

In other news, Evelyn shared some photos of her doing interviews for the upcoming Basketball Wives season. She looks fab!

50 Returns to Twitter, Goes on Diddy's Dirty Money (Again)

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

Outside of the Lox (awhile back), I don’t think anyone slams Diddy more than attention seeking 50 Cent. 50 took a 5 minute twitter break, but apparently he’s back.

Since he can not STAND Diddy’s Dirty Money, he’s decided to provide us with a reflective photo…

(…Why does the dude in the hot-pink shorts have his cheeks out like that though?…)

Can we expect 50 to cut out the Puffy digs anytime soon? He tweeted, “I talk to puffy he said nigga da shit you be doing is bad for business we can make a lot of money together. so that’s the last puffy hit lol”

Chad's Reality Girlfriend, Rubi, Responds to Evelyn Rumors

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

Here’s the quick and dirty. Rumors have been swirling during Chad’s reality show, that he’s been dating Evelyn of Basketball Wives. Back story here. This has been confirmed by subliminal tweets between both Chad and Evelyn, Tiphani spilling the beans last week confirming this (click here). We also have a friend at the production company that’s semi-confirmed, as much as she legally can, that Evelyn is who Chad really seems to be dating.

The good folks over at Reality Tea, flat-out asked Rubi about Evelyn. Here’s what she had to say?

What do you make of the rumor that he’s dating Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn? Even while we were on the show a lot of girls were saying he was with her. There have always been rumors. It wasn’t a huge shock to me when I heard that it was out there in the media. But just like with anybody, when you hear a rumor you just ask like, “Hey what’s going on?” I asked him about it. He said Evelyn’s a friend of his, they didn’t have anything and they’re friends. And that’s all. If someone tells you something, you just have to believe them. I’m not gonna sit there and ask him every two seconds. I asked him once and he answered it and that’s enough.

Basketball Wives' Evelyn

Would you go as far as to call it love? I think love is a super strong word. Do we have the material and the hard work to make it to love? Yes. I think we definitely have the material to get there. But should we say love love love as of right now? I don’t know. It’s a love. Like I luv him, like L-U-V. He probably feels the same way about me. But we definitely have the potential to be able to get there.

(…Frankly, we can perceive her reaction one of two ways. Either she’s flat-out naive or mature. Naive in thinking that this show and reality relationship actually meant something and that Chad can actually be faithful to her based off of what we perceive of him in the public. Rubi can also be perceived as being mature for not being involved in messy back-and-forth via twitter, etc. Hell, sometimes a “man and a woman have an understanding that only they can understand.” Been there. Done that….good luck to all 3 of ’em…)

Recap. Ochocinco’s: the Ultimate Catch–The Finale

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

Here’s the RECAP by Guest Blogger, Yosh.

Last week, we shared our prediction of who Chad REALLY chooses. Nonetheless, we decided to stay committed and see this show through to the very, bitter end.

Brittany

It’s now down to the final 2 women,  #1 seed Rubi and #11 seed Brittany. Chad begins by taking Rubi on a yacht to see if their personalities mesh well. After she changes into her bikini, the two engage in a make out session. They have great sexual chemistry, but their communication sucks. Bunch of awkward silence and crickets chirping. Meanwhile back at the hotel, Brittany is seen by the Dr. and discovers that she has a viral gastrointestinal infection (…yuck…).

Rubi

Later that night, Ocho takes Rubi to Prime 112 on South beach for dinner. He’s been spending a lot of time with Rubi, which is just not fair. (…I know Brittany is sick and all, but damn at least visit her!…) Anyway, the whole reason for this dinner date is to see how much deeper their connection is, outside of sexual chemistry. Epic fail! No conversation at all! This was like watching paint dry. He then takes her back to his hotel suite with the whole candle, rose petals and champagne scene again. She returns to the suite the next morning and Brittany notices her dress is wrinkled and make-up is smeared. Britt Britt ( I feel like I know her now to give her a nickname), what did you expect! She’s the #1 seed, not to mention muy caliente and she gets tons of camera time!

Anyway, breakfast gets delivered to the ladies with a note for Brittany to meet Chad for her for their one-on-one date. He takes Brittany on a romantic helicopter ride over South Beach. I’m a little nervous for her because she clearly is having tummy issues! She makes it through the ride and arrives to a date with some dolphins! Overall, Brittany rates her date a 10 and she had a very good time with Chad.  Back at the hotel, Grandma Ocho arrives to visit Rubi! She jumps right in to questioning what she does for a living and where she met him.

At dinner, Brittany wants to get something off her chest. She brings up her son’s father because she thinks Ocho may have a misconception about her. He feels that past ex’s do come in the way of new relationships and wants that reassurance that it wont happen. Brittany just keeps it all the way 100 and lets him know “I run this motherfucka. Her words, not mine (for once). Chad really likes Brittany and loves being around her. The only thing that bothers him is the ex-husband. To help him dig deeper, he pulls Grandma Ocho back in to get to know Brittany. As she did with the psychologists, she spills her guts out to her so there are no secrets she needs to pass on to her grandbaby.

Chad then debriefs with his grandma because he trusts her instincts about people. He lets her know he envisions himself with either woman. Grandma Ocho likes Rubi and that she’s family oriented, but she’s too quiet and naïve. She tells him that Brittany talks too much, but she likes her. Her biggest concern is Brittany’s son accepting Chad into his life and she knows that if he doesn’t, Brittany will end all ties with him. It’s pretty easy from the conversation who he might choose, but we’ve been wrong before.

Chad and Brittany

Now we’ve come to eliminations! There’s no denying the chemistry that Rubi and Ocho have, but they run out of things to talk about. He feels at some point that chemistry will run out. Brittany is his unexpected surprise and he loves that she is such a strong woman. But, she has a lot going on in her life and certain things will create drama. He wants to know if both of their baggage that they may bring into the relationship wont be the reason it ends and she reassures him that “with the trust she plans to put into the relationship, she hopes he does the same”. Rubi is shitting bricks! It seems as though he is going to give her the boot! He asks Brittany to come forward and lets her know that bringing their two lifestyles together is a recipe for disaster. So yeah, he picks Rubi. We’ll see how long this lasts. So until to the reunion show, revisit my recaps so you can get ready!
