Aww Shuckey Duckey

Looks like Bigga Wedding Watch '08 is still in full effect. Sources are reporting that teams are setting up tents on Hudson St. in NY that interestingly have the Roman Numeral IV (4 for the slow folks) on them. 195 Hudson St. to be exact I hear. They might try to pass this off, though, as a celebration for Jay's new deal with Live Nation.

So What's Really Hood With The Alleged Bigga Wedding?

Rumors of wedding colors, attire, location, and more are circulating heavy as all hell today about the alleged Jay-Z and Beyonce wedding. Reports said that today (4/4) is indeed the wedding date, and a prominent source in Beyonce's camp allegedly confirmed last night that a wedding is indeed taking place today. Damn. Said source even gave details that the wedding guests were told to only wear ivory, it's taking place in NY, the location was not written on the invitations, and it will be a small private affair with a several celebrity guests including the Williams sisters. Kelly Rowland was in London all week, but conveniently is back in the states today. And chick posted a Youtube video today...randomly chillin' with Michelle on the vid as well...being uncharacteristically extra vague and giggly about their current location. The video and more when you read the rest...

Updates On All Of Destiny's Chil'ren

Purely because I have to perform my gossiply duties: Sources are buzzing that Bigga is jumping the bedazzled broom this Friday (4/4). They have less than 60 days now to actually get married if the reports of them filing a marriage license on April Fool's Day were true. Where did folks get this Friday as the set date? Because they seemed "happy" when they filed the marriage license, both Jay and Bey's birthdays fall on the 4th of a month (12/4 and 9/4 respectively), April is the 4th month of the year, both of them have the number 4 tattooed on their hands, yada yada. I say it's all bullsh*t until they release their very own wedding favor Jay and Bey Wedding Duets cd we all know is coming.

The Wendy Williams saga is still going. I received this little e-mail in my inbox this morning:
To Whom It May Concern: On Monday, March 31, 2008 supports of talent booker for the Wendy Williams Experience Nicole Spence will be having a protest to demand Wendy Williams to be removed from the air waves of 107.5 WBLS. The protest will start at 2:00pm sharp and continue til 7:00pm. At the WBLS Station located on the corner of 3 Park Ave. & 34th Street. New York, NY it’s time that we take a stand for all victims of sexual harassment in the work place especially in the entertainment industry. We are calling women and men to come out and join us this Monday. We plan for this to be a peaceful and successful protest; we ask that supports come out with banners saying “Justice For Nicole Spence”.

Interesting that Wendy has her own talk show in the works that's already in its final stages of production. The publicity game is a funny one. Take it how you wanna.

Does Jay-Z Really Have A FENDI Face?+Other Fabness

It looks like Jay-Z might have a new job...as the new face of FENDI. How his "face" will be incorporated into the brand is still a secret--he could be the actual face/spokesperson or just lending his name to the brand like he usually does. Either way, he was spotted alongside Karl Lagerfield yesterday (who is the FENDI Creative Director) at a photoshoot for the new F/W '08 FENDI campaign. And he was definitely all in the mix. It seems like they're trying to keep this low low though since once a paparazzi sprung from he corner snapping pics, the pap was physically taken down extra hard. We shall see...

Tameka's Laying The Smack Down On Ursh Again+Celebs Party It Up With Heatherette+Tyra's Leaving ANTM?+Other Fabness

Here we go again:

Tameka Raymond has been known to lay into her husband Usher about who he can and can't have in his life--esp. where women are concerned. And it looks like the pot is stirring again. Usher tapped Keri Hilson to be his leading lay for his "Love In This Club" video, but apparently Tameka wasn't feeling it while she watched them shoot it this weekend. Chick got salty and let everybody know: "It was supposed to be a sexy video shoot," our spy said. "And Tameka was there the entire time guarding like a watchdog. It was ridiculous - she knows Keri and knows she's no video ho or Karrine Steffans." Steffans, nicknamed "Superhead," wrote the book, "Video Vixen," about her alleged flings with Usher and several other artists. "Tameka is very insecure," our source said. "Even in rehearsals she was weird and clearly not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude. The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly - she looked like an extra. Tameka wouldn't let Keri have her hairdresser there - she had to use the hairdresser who was doing the extras."

Sources also say Tameka banned Ursh's longtime choreographer Jamaica from the set. But Usher's manager Benny Medina says Keri was happy about Tameka's styling choices (so Ursh gave her a job?) for the vid and Jamaica arrived a day late. *side eye*

So The Jacksons Are Broke?+Halle Gets Nahla's Nursery Baby Fab+What's Really Going On With Mario & Karina?+Other Fabness

So the Post has a 5 page article about Michael Jackson and Co. being on the road back from riches to rags.  But this excerpt right here pretty much sums it up: Marlon Jackson, 51, an original Jackson Five member who stocks shelves at a Vons supermarket in San Diego, had to temporarily move into an extended-stay hotel. Randy, 46, does odd jobs, including fixing cars in a Los Angeles garage owned by a family friend. He recently claimed Michael was going to give him $1.7 million - "a pipe dream," said another brother last week. Jackie, 56, the oldest and most debonair of the brothers, is struggling to manage his son Siggy's aspiring rap career after an Internet clothing business startup and attempts to produce music failed. Jermaine, 54, shuttles back and forth from his girlfriend's home in Ventura County, Calif., to his parents' mansion in Encino, where Jackie and Randy still bunk. Tito, 55, is the only brother still making music, but it's a meager living. The guitarist fronts a blues and jazz band that plays small venues and nets him $500 and $1,500 per occasional gig - a far cry from the days when the Jacksons could pull in 50,000 people at $30 a ticket. And we all know Mike's financial status.  And apparently Janet's trying to suport everybody at this point.  I'm no Greenspan, but from the looks of things (including them relying on Janet), their joint economic status is f'd up.  Good luck with that.
