Ray J Speaks On Leaked Kardashian Photos

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Better late than never–Ray J blogs about the leaked nude photos & videos that the world saw of him and Kim Kardashian. Peep his blog below: 

First off, if you want to keep your stuff private then you can’t have nude photos in your portfolio. You can’t have that on your computer. That’s the first way to stay away from it: Don’t do it. And then the second thing is don’t do it. Lol.

People can always find a way to get it out because sometimes you might have a best friend or a righthand that you get into it with and they could’ve had that footage and you telling them how you feel about them and you ain’t gon’ never deal with them and Eff you and then the next thing you know, boom there it is.

So you never know. My advice is don’t do it if you ain’t trying to get caught up.

Now, it’s a trend. Back then it was for real. It was something that really had to happen for it to be explosive. Now, people can tell a trend from something else. Sometimes people are doing it for publicity but if you doing it for publicity you better look good! That’s all I’m saying. I’ve seen a couple of them because I’m 18 and over and when I looked, it said, “Click if you’re 18 and over,” so I was like, Yep I’m cool, and then I clicked it.

It’s all about how you deal with it. With me, I had a lot of explicit offers come to the table with a lot of money being offered to me and I could’ve been blinded by the money as far as traveling down that road and then I think for sure career over. But it’s just all how you deal with it. If you learn from it and try to move on and do things that’s are more positive in your career and not suck yourself into the negativity, I think that’s how you overcome that.

 (((This is old news, but perhaps since Ray J’s mother recently discussed this on Wendy Williams, he felt the need to give his thoughts–again. Or perhaps this discussion increases attention to the family’s new reality show. Whatever, I’m over it.)))

If you missed it, hear what Ray J’s mother has to say about the private images between her son and Kardashian.

Whitney Houston's Voice Questionable in Concert

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Additional reports have come out that Aunt Whitney is still having vocal issues performing in concert. Here are some recent unfavorable reviews:

The London Evening Standard:
“Where once she soared, now she wheezes and croaks, bludgeoning her perfect pop single ‘I Wanna Dance (With Somebody Who Loves Me)’ into karaoke submission; stripping the moving ‘My Love Is Your Love’ of all emotion and inflicting grisly carnage on ‘I Will Always Love You’ (if she is late-period Judy Garland, this is her ‘Over The Rainbow’).”

The Independent:
“Her voice, seemingly about an octave deeper than the Whitney who sang the hits, is ragged and raw … Between songs, wheezing and panting and occasionally breaking into a scary Wicked Witch of the West cackle, she plays for time, breaking off to sign autographs.”

The Telegraph:
“When she then tried to perform a medley of her early songs, even her infinitely patient audience began to revolt. Houston placated them, as she repeatedly did, by acting like a spoilt girl — giggling, begging forgiveness, stamping her feet and then being momentarily brilliant again.”

Please peep the clip below and judge for yourself.

(((I’ve always been a Whitney fan and I’m a bit sad that she hasn’t bounced back vocally yet. I just don’t know y’all…)))

Update: NeNe Tweets on Infedility Rumor

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Update: This evening, NeNe confirmed via twitter that she has not cheated on her husband. She recently tweeted: The bloggers have made up a huge LIE sayin I’ve cheated on my husband! I’m alot of things but I’ve never been a CHEATER! less than 20 seconds ago via Echofon

If my relationship ends, it won’t b because I CHEATED! Enough already, stop with the lies! less than 10 seconds ago via Echofon

Excuse me 4 goin off but lies & ignorance is something I have NO patience 4! PS: It’s sad when u get blamed 4 something u didn’t do 2 minutes ago via Echofon

(((Well, there you have it folks….. Nonetheless, things aren’t looking to good here folks. Not that she asked me, perhaps she should stop tweeting; I highly doubt that her husband is. And if reading the blogs bothers NeNe, stay off of them!!!)))

Read below for the backstory:

A few gossip sources have reported that Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member, NeNe Leakes, is separated from her husband Greg. It appears that Wendy Williams has reported this alleged rumor. Today, NeNe threw some submlimal tweets out into the universe. None of her tweets confirm or deny any parts of the rumor.

It’s amazing how people speak about u as if they KNOW u! They have NO clue 27 minutes ago via Echofon

RT @ArmyEsposa96: @WendyWilliams says ur a liar & a cheat…sad 4 ur dear husband< if u knew my husband, u wouldn’t even make that statement 17 minutes ago via Echofon

(((I love me some Greg. On a semi-not-so-nice-thing-to-say note, NeNe, if you don’t want the public spreading rumors, don’t include your man on your reality show and stop tweeting and/or addressing the rumors. When you choose to participate in a reality show, you give up your privacy.)))

Vixen Rosa Acosta Blogs About Eating Disorder

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized

Most of us know Rosa Acosta as the video and model sex kitten. She recently opened up about her struggle w/ anorexia and bulimia via Vibe. Read her blog below:

Usually, I don’t write anything when I show my pictures, but I felt the urge to share with all of you how I felt during this photo shoot and after I saw the final results. Everybody knows that I was a classical ballet dancer for more than 18 years. I was the student with the highest grades of the entire school, which suggested I had all the qualities to become the perfect dancer.

Nevertheless, ”all the qualities” became “almost all” when at my 13 years old I weighed 125 pounds, which made me undergo bulimia for two years and anorexia for like seven years. When I remember about those days, I merely can’t understand what went through my head. The image that I used to see reflected on the mirror was more of a monster than of a young girl. I was in a state where nothing was more important to me than to “look good” and if that meant to be sick I wouldn’t care.

Never, with the exception of that experience, I felt less loved… no one has hated me more of what I have hated myself during those years. No one has detested me so much that wish to do as much damage to me as the one I did to myself by taking my body to the extreme, exaggerating the physical workout, not eating or drinking fluids for days, taking laxatives and punishing myself in any possible way.

Many years later and 100% recuperated I value more how I feel than how I look and these pictures reflect, in one way or another, my physical and mental state. I have accepted and love myself the way I am; I respect my body and take care of it like a temple. Rather than looking perfect, I value the fact that I can run or walk for an hour without getting exhausted or losing my breath. I value more the fact that my endurance has increased incredibly and that I have fulfilled successfully the physical challenges that I have set out. When I thought I couldn’t any more, I could…

One day I thought I was worthless. Today I am at ease with myself and I have learned that to feel loved and to be accepted is something that needs to start with yourself. You are only one step away from being in the best physical state of your life! What are you waiting for??

(((I think that its dope that more women are becoming vocal about eating disorders and the battle to have the perfect body. Kudos to Rose for speaking up. On a more shallow note, can I have her body when I grow up?)))

For more info on Rosa, visit her website or twitter page.
