Talkin' Bout Mama

I admit I was the LAST person to know that Monica had a child. The woman is so skinny I doubted she could barely BREATHE without assistance, let alone birth a baby.

La'Toya: "Ummm, can people let their children takes pics without...

a) a scully cap on their heads
b) a pacifier in their mouths

No Mo' Mo

Once you start making a little money, shouldn't you be able to afford a COMPLETE outfit? So why is homebroad in public sporting a Walmart bra and some Osh Kosh jumper skirt?

Not to mention the fact that she's covered with more ink than a love letter.

La'Toya: "I'ma need for her NOT to stand in front of nobody's camera ever in life!"


I love Gabrielle Union. She's talented, she's gorgeous and apparently she has no idea which man she wants.

So hell, why not just date 'em ALL?

In the last 3 months I swear I've seen photos of this broad linked with every other black man in Hollywood, including Jamie Foxx. Now she's gallavanting around town with THIS dude.


Ghetto Tabernacle

A turf war broke out over somebody's BOYFRIEND??

It's not like anyone exchanged vows or signed pre-nups. Ain't no money changing hands when the whole thing falls apart. Somebody make me understand this!


Minister Shot, Killed In Fight Over Woman
Shooter Flees Scene

HOUSTON -- The minister of a northwest Harris County church was killed in a fight over two women at an apartment complex, officials told KPRC Local 2.

Deputies said it began Sunday when an argument broke out at the I Surrender All church between two groups -- those siding with the minister's ex-girlfriend and those siding with his current girlfriend.

"Apparently, during Sunday morning services, there was some altercation at the church, after services, between the ex-girlfriend and the new girlfriend of the minister," said Sgt. Bruce Williams of the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

The group siding with the ex-girlfriend went to an apartment complex in the 14100 block of Cornerstone Village near Walter on Sunday night, where the sister of the minister's current girlfriend lives.

The minister, identified as 36-year-old Leroy Wilson, and the girlfriend were then called to the apartment.

The group began arguing and a man pulled a gun and shot Wilson shortly after 10 p.m., deputies said.

The shooter fled the scene. Investigators said he was a parishioner who sided with the ex-girlfriend.

Family members described Wilson as the man who helped everyone.

"I just can't believe it," said Ruth Randle, the victim's mother. "Leroy was a good man. He helped all the down-and-out people -- the people that nobody else would help."

Family members said Wilson's death had nothing to do with his love life.

"What made me mad was when they said this was a love triangle. No, it wasn't a love triangle. It was about a man that was trying to save another woman's life and got in the way of a bully," Randle said.

The I Surrender All church held services at the Wingate Inn, located at 9050 Mills Road. Wilson started his ministry about one year ago.

Moron Tom

Somebody pull him off that stage...PLEASE!

Loving Her Is WRONG

This is not what I think it is, is it?

Are times THIS hard for Nia Long??

I need SOMEBODY to tell me that these photos were taken out of context. Otherwise this looks like a little boy trying to date his older sister and I don't need to see that.

TC Is Gangsta

As evidenced below.

I am sincerely tired of looking at this jackass. Which is why I don't think I'm gonna bother seeing M:i:3, at least not till it comes out on DVD.

But the dude obviously knows he's scared away half his fanbase with his crackhead maneuvers so here he is trying to get down with Kanye. What does he think he's getting -- the black vote??

They told the boy to start his own business...

He just took things in the WRONG direction.

From La'Toya: "I should've talked to him BEFORE paying $26.00 for 1/2 tank of gas!"


Md. Teen Charged With Counterfeiting
Thursday May 04, 2006 9:03am

Annapolis (AP) - Authorities in Anne Arundel County say a 14-year-old middle school student has been charged with counterfeiting after trying to use a fake 20 dollar bill to buy lunch.

It is the third time in as many months that counterfeit money was used in county schools.

The boy was charged with manufacturing and possessing counterfeit US currency after he gave a bogus 20 dollar bill to another student and asked him to get change in the cafeteria at Bates Middle School.

The cashier noticed the bill was fake and contacted police.

The boy, who was released to his parents, will likely get community service.

Police say the U.S. Secret Service has been notified. Charges are also pending against another student who reportedly had some of the fake bills.

Fat Joe Had a Shower

So how come everybody's still dirty?

Hello, wasn't this supposed to be about the BABY? So why are there enough breasts and thighs to fill up a chicken bucket?

Of course, La'Toya says it best: "I'm sorry was this a baby shower or cabaret?!"

Chateau Indigo

Two questions:

1) Where the hell is this "club" located?
2) Who should I pay to get the place shut down??







FYI: Mike Epps

Beef Worth 50 Cent

I hear Oprah's losing MAJOR sleep over this one.

But I do have to agree with Fitty -- at least somewhat -- on the influence of hip hop. Yeah, kids don't need to be hearing about 9's and 45's every time they turn around. But the real problem is the fact that a lot of these parents ain't doing they daggone jobs!

Moral of the story: don't blame the music for YOUR lack of upbringing skills.


Rapper sounds off on TV mogul when asked about her ban on rappers as guests.

*Don’t be surprised if the next DJ Whoo Kid mix tape contains a 50 Cent joint dissing the mighty Oprah Winfrey.

The talk show host is in the rapper’s crosshairs for her unwillingness to invite certain types of hip hop artists on her show.Winfrey has often voiced disgust against artists who use their free speech to spit the N-word, degrade women and promote violence in their lyrics.

When asked about Oprah’s stance in a recent interview with the Associated Press, 50 didn’t bite his tongue.

"I think she caters to older white women," said the 29-year-old MC. "Oprah's audience is my audience's parents. So, I could care less about Oprah or her show."

Taking it a step further, 50 said any stamp of approval from Oprah would be disastrous for his career anyway.

"I'm actually better off having friction with her," he said.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, also spoke about his mentor Eminem following the shooting death of D12 member Proof earlier this month at a Detroit nightclub.

"He's coming along," 50 said of Eminem. "He's gonna be all right. I mean, it was definitely a big loss for him. Proof was actually his best friend in the world from forever."

The rapper also took time to address the study released last week by the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation – a nonprofit public health research group – which suggested that young people who listen to rap music are more prone to alcohol and drug use and aggressive behavior.

The Queens native disagrees with the findings, believing that parents should take most of the blame for failing to explain that his music is entertainment, not a blueprint for breaking the law.

"I think that the violence that happened to Proof and the violence that's happening across America right now has nothing to do with hip-hop," he said. "It has something to do with the people - the state of them - and the music doesn't alter that."

Easter Boy

My basket arrived late this year.

Probably because THIS son-of-a-somebody was too busy busting poses in the middle of the street.

Kimora's Feet Worth $6600

I can't stand behind the veracity of the following article.

But then, it's usually more fun when it ISN'T true...


New York -- Kimora Lee Simmons, the estranged wife of multi-millionaire businessman and rap producer, Russell Simmons, spoke to reporters yesterday while receiving a foot bath in 1957 Nickolls and Perk Cristal valued at $1312.50 per bottle. She stated, "I am happy and wished that Russell and I departed years ago."

The fashion maven, clothed in a Chanel satin suit, was also apparently intoxicated.

"Russell and I had outgrown one another years ago and the little blue pill did not help our sex life," Kimora said. "This is off the record...oh hell you can report it -- Russell was awful in bed!"

The fashion mogul continued, "We will continue our business relationship and we will both be active in our kids' lives, but the romance is what...over!"

The First Post

Well, I'm back to using Blogger again. Joy.

I already have another blog up and running but, for some reason, I kept getting the itch to start a new one. I procrastinated on the whole thing until my dear friend La'Toya finally beat me over the head to make this thing happen. So blackPEOPLEblog is officially in the hizzouse.

I hope you're happy, Toya.

Anyway, this blog, for the most part, will focus on topics that interest and/or guessed it...Black people. But in no way do I mean to alienate anyone -- any and all are welcome to comment.

Okay, I'm asking you to comment.

Look, don't make me BEG.
