DRAMA: K.Foxx Speaks On Getting NIXED From Hot 97....Possibly Because Of The Now CANCELLED "Gossip Game"

A few whammys were handed out yesterday to NYC's Hot 97 crew.  Not only did morning co-host K.Foxx make it known she was fired from the morning show, but the show she (and much of the radio crew appeared on) "Gossip Game" got cancelled as well.


Check out the drama involving Hot 97's radio programmer Ebro supposedly calling K.Foxx out for sleeping her way around the business inside...

Everyone knows about long time beef between NY's top radio stations-Hot 97 & Power 105.1.  Bt things got extra heated over the past couple years as The Breakfast Club at Power 105 took the #1 spot usually held by Hot 97's morning show.  So when K.Foxx, Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg slipped to #2, and their program director (who has been known to get caught up in drama) Ebro Darden started chiming in with the co-hosts everyday, ish changed.

Fast forward to K.Foxx joining that VH1 show "Gossip Game" and some of Hot 97's radio drama getting exposed when Kay often got into it with co-star Angela Yee of The Breakfast Club, and also Ebro and the co-hosts appeared. 

Now, Kay has been abruptly "fired" after drama with Ebro and she's speaking out to EBONY magazine.


On her abrupt "firing"

In radio, they don’t give you a two week notice because you could just go on the air and wild out, and say “F*ck you!” and all that. So they have you do a shift and tell you after your shift not to come back. It’s not unheard of for you not know what’s going on up till then.

On how her co-hosts, Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds responded

They’re shocked. And confused...I’m a good person. I always came in to work I wasn’t a bitch to anyone. I always smiled. Did lots of events. I was a team player. [DJ Funkmaster] Flex called me and he said: “You didn’t deserve this. You rode for HOT-97.” I wore that logo on my back.

On if VH1’s Gossip Game reality TV show caused problems at work

I really don’t know. I really don’t know. I didn’t know I had any problems at work. If I did, that’s news to me.

On Ebro Darden saying “you’ve seen all the rappers’ Johnsons” and that she “got your job” at HOT-97 by sleeping with someone--that you “slept your way to the top”?

I was thinking---is he saying that “the top” is HOT- 97? That’s the top? For me it’s not. So, I just think that when somebody says that they’re just trying be malicious and hurtful and they just have no idea of who I am or what my story is. That’s why it’s so important for me to do interviews like this. Because you go through so many things, and you don’t want to be a b*tch if you will and lash out but there are little girls who are looking at us.

One thing that I will say about it was that it was hurtful. Because the person that said it, my program director, is the one that hired me. And he brought me in and he knew that was not the truth. So why are you going to play with me like that? Why are you going to play with my livelihood like that?

Meanwhile, we caught wind of an email folks connected with VH1 and "Gossip Game" producers sent out to the co-stars of the show.  And the show has been cancelled.  There will be no new season.  Damn...ixnayed from a second season on VH1 of all places?  Interesting...


The Randomness:

1. The medical examiner has confirmed that toxicology reports prove Chris Kelly of "Kriss Kross" died of a drug overdose.   STORY

Her wiggery was a mess, but

Her wiggery was a mess, but overall I thought she was cool, a go getter. Hope she lands on her feet somewhere else. When one door closes another one opens.

Aww. I liked her. Hope she

Aww. I liked her. Hope she lands on her feet. The girl that's there now is whack. Ebro is whack too for trying to put her business out there. True or not... It's besides the point and her on the job persona should out way gossip. Karma is real. No ones makes comments on how he dick rides Jay-z! Yes... It's obvious even through radio. Her so called "sleeping her way around" is not.

Ebro is a ghetto hood n****

Ebro is a ghetto hood n**** that likes to abuse the little bit of power he thinks he has. He is the program director. As such when they slipped in ratings it's his fault and HE should take the hit and be fired.

K. Foxx will do/be just fine.

K. Foxx will do/be just fine. Not feeling the morning show since Ebro decided to be the chump in the front and not the mack in the back. Haven't fully listened since he dropped "Open Letter". And while I luvv Cipha Sounds, it seems like his voice is now stifled ~ please go back to Saturday afternoons ~ I used to work out to Cipha's Good tunes.

Ebro seems like a nasty,

Ebro seems like a nasty, underhanded, passive aggressive individual and I wouldn't put it past him to have either known about the firing ahead of time or to even be the one who suggested that she be fired. Either way, he more than likely has a hand in it. There's just something about him that is not right. Keep your head up K Foxx. More doors will open for you and I pray that you walk in and go higher from here. And you're right, Hot 97 is not the top! There is so much more! The only people who view their current position as being "the top" are those who have become complacent. Out of all of the cast members on GG, you and Kim Osorio seemed to be the most level headed and fair. God bless you K!

Indeed, he has power isues.

Indeed, he has power isues. But i dont get how ebro can talk about someone being promiscuous when he openly admits to cheating on his girlfriend on & off for 7 years. since when do hoes blast other people. On the other hand, I thought K.Foxx was engaged? well hope things go well for her

Jesus helps those in need.

Jesus helps those in need. She can stay at my house (1 bedroom loft)..........
