Gossip Bits



As you all know, YBF was on the scene for several Inaugural balls and events and parties over the last several days. Most celebs were nothing short of fabulous, YBF lovers, or just having a great time all around. But we came across a few celebs who need to recognize what's really hood. Here's the scoop: At the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball, Ashanti was being quite "Hollywood" and "didn't feel like posing for pictures" while in her VIP area. Not even for the sponsors of the event. And even frowned up and shooed people away. I find it odd--though--that as soon as the "other" type of Hollywood media asked for pics of her, she quickly obliged. I'm not saying Ashanti--but I'm just saying. Funny that I didn't know who it was she was so enthralled in her couch convo with until I saw the foolywang black and white fur coat on one person and way too small "cocktail" dress on the other. It became apparent it was Momager and sister Shi Shi. SMDH. No Nelly in site either. Basically people just don't recognize which media are really the ones keeping their names in the media... We hear that Beyonce was upset that she couldn't get to her hubby's concert rehearsal Monday afternoon because all of the streets around the venue were cut off. She reportedly pitched a fit because she didn't want to trek the 4 blocks in her stilettos in the extreme cold. the cops didn't care who she was and weren't budging. So her security turned around, took her and Jay-Z back tot heir hotel at the Mandarin Oriental, just for her to change into some more walk-worthy shoes. Gotta love it. More ish when you read the rest...

Afternoon Tidbits: T.I. & Tiny, Michelle Obama, Lil Wayne, Andre 3000 & More

T.I. and Tiny are seemingly on Cloud 9 these days: He had her on his arm for every event during Inauguration. And even told everyone at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball--during his award acceptance speech--that Tameka is the love of his life. I thought I saw a tear. I guess the picture of an impending jail cell will make you man up to your true feelings real quick. And yes, I'm holding off on believing those pregnancy rumors about these two---for now. Michelle Obama's hairstylist Johnny Wright has reportedly landed a development deal to star in a hairy reality show. Here's the scoop:
Former Chicagoan Johnny Wright has styled the first lady's coif for the Democratic National Convention, her upcoming appearance on the cover of Vogue magazine and other occasions. He has signed a deal with 44 Blue, which produces such reality shows as Style Network's "Split Ends" and A&E's "L.A. Gang Unit."
Wright has also been Oprah's hairstylist. By the way, we hear Michelle O. just has sent out invites to very special VIP ladies around the U.S. to come to her brunch where she will be discussing her initiatives as First Lady. Nice. Interesting... Congrats to Andre 3000 on being named one of GQ's Best New Designers In America with his new Benjamin Bixby line:
The philosophy: “During OutKast’s Stankonia period, I looked like I was from Mars. The music was otherworldly, and my character reflected that. I wanted to put that spirit into classic clothes, but ones that people could actually wear.” The look: “I think the cut of Benjamin Bixby comes from comic-book characters, which I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. In comic books, the waist is always pinched, but the legs are full-cut, kind of like the Cracker Jack man.” The influence: “In high school, in Atlanta, when Grand Puba told us to wear Girbaud jeans, I wore Girbaud jeans. Then you had this prep movement happening: Ralph Lauren, Eddie Bauer, Bass, Sebago, and Timberland. So imagine me walking through [local housing project] Bowen Homes in the morning to catch the bus, but I’m dressed like a prep. As you get older, you go back to those things.”

Nice. More ish when you read the rest...

Jennifer Hudson's Superbowl Comeback!+"Real Housewives of ATL" Shakeup

It's official.  Even though Jennifer Hudson won't be singing at any Inauguration festivities, she's making her comeback debut at the 2009 Superbowl.  She'll be singing the National Anthem on Feb.

Oh Ray-J+EXCLUSIVE: Chris Paul's Baby Mama Drama Continued!

Sigh.  Some things just are not about to change in '09: Ray-J's new reality show is officially official.  It's called "For The Love Of Ray-J" and premieres Feb. 2nd at 10:30/9:30pm cst.    He's already named his girls and they're some doozies--upgraded from ish like Seesinz and Buckeey.  He's got Caviar and Cashmere and Unique and others.  Check out VH1 for the rest of the up close and personals with the "ladies".  Ray-J insists that his sow is the un-Flavor of Love and he respects his girls--and brings them on upscale trips like helicopter rides.  Stop laughing.  Make that money Ray-J. In other news, a story hit the net about my crush NBA baller Chris Paul and his girlfriend's new pregnancy.  That story said it was planned and the two are happier than pie--even though N.O. Hornet Chris may get disowned from his fam a la Kobe Bryant.  But we've got the real story from our source back home in New Orleans who is extremely close to the situation as well. Allegedly nothing was planned, and the girlfriend, Jada, has been trying to "trap" Chris for years, and no one except for Jada is happy about this situation.  Our exclusive lowdown is after the jump...

SMACKDOWN!  Rihanna has apparently tightened her leash on her man Chris Brown.  Remember the winner of UK's "X-Factor" Alexandra Burke?  Well apparently Ms.

Guess Who's Knocked Up?

I would make it an all out guessing game but that takes too much energy.  My girl Tiffany from Atlanta Gossip just dished to me that Mya "I found a new hustle" Harrison is allegedly pregnant.  Oh, but there's more. The father of her child is allegedly Jared Najjar, son of the billionaire real estate tycoon Lee Najjar who was pegged as Real ATL Housewife

Free Dipping Low With Selita Ebanks' Man Osi Umenyiora?!?

Well what do we have here? A source has just sent in a very interesting tidbit. This time last year NY Giant Osi Umenyiora was Selita Ebanks' man. But hopefully they're not still together (I have heard they have broken up) because we hear Free--formerly of "106 and Park"--is his new chick on the low.
