MORNING PERKS: Maia Campbell Goes To Rehab+Tila & Shawne Merriman Update+Christina & The Dream Not Finished With Weddings?

Looks like getting the word out about Maia Campbell's current condition did some good. Maia's late mother's best friend has tracked her down and gotten her into a rehab facility, reportedly. Said friend has also confirmed that Maia indeed has bi-polar disease, as well as a compounding substance abuse problem. And the two together actually create symptoms of schizophrenia. Here's the letter Black Web 2.0 posted after talking to friend Nancy Carter: First of all, thank you for your support and kindness in regard to Maia (My-ee-ah) Campbell. Last night I received a wonderful email from a friend of her late mother, Bebe Moore Campbell. Nancy Carter, executive director of NAMI Urban Los Angeles (NAMI Urban Los Angeles (NULA) is the urban affiliate of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness), thanking BlackWeb20.com for the coverage and the compassion shown towards Maia. Nancy alerted me to my error and explained that Maia has been diagnosed with bi-polar/manic depression. And because substance abuse is involved she has co-occurring disorder, which has symptoms similar to schizophrenia. In short, Maia is mentally ill and has a substance abuse problem. Nancy returned my phone call to her and shared some important and good news: Maia is in treatment. And she said that there is hope for Maia’s recovery but the prayers of “50,000,000″ people can make the difference, because Maia doesn’t like to stay in treatment, and her treatment involves drug withdrawal as well as treatment for her disorders. Nancy was awestruck by the wonderful comments left on our site and by the general outpouring of support. She asked me to tell you that Maia’s disorders are exasperated and sent out of control by substance abuse. Pre-existing and early onset bi-polar, clinical depression and schizophrenia can be sent out of control by marijuana (the worst culprit), alcohol and of course, synthetic and street drugs. Maintain your hope for Maia’s recovery. Nancy said, “She can use her beauty, talent, and celebrity for the good of others.”

Good for her.

The folks over at Global Grind claim a source told them that despite Shawne Merriman's claims that he was trying to prevent Tila Tequila from driving drunk that dramaful night, it has to be a lie. She did not have a car that night because she was booked for an event on Friday night. The source goes on to tell them that "a car service was provided for Tila by the promoters which refutes Shawne Merriman's claim that Tila was trying to drive drunk. She did not have a car." And here's Tila's first official non-Twitter statement from her lawyers: Shawne Merriman and his advisors have decided that the best defense is a good offense, attacking Tila Tequila in the press with a lot of calculated spin to cover up his illegal and indefensible actions. Fortunately, we as a society will not tolerate a 6'4", 270 pound all-pro NFL linebacker physically assaulting a young lady who is 4'11" and 93 pounds. It is never justifiable to brutally assault, choke, strike and imprison a woman. Once the truth is fully revealed, Mr. Merriman's fantastic story of how he was trying to keep Ms. Tequila safe will be completely discredited. No one, especially a woman, should ever have to endure what Mr. Merriman did to Tila Tequila. This saga continues and an update about Mr. and Mrs. Nash when you read the rest....

TIDBITS: Frankie, Neffie, Jay-Z Will Be On "Oprah Show", & Janet

Our photographer spotted Frankie at an art event in Atlanta hosted by Upscale magazine.  And no, we have no clue who invited her or where she shops for her event clothes:

Even Boris was a bit confused.

Speaking of Frankie, her daughter Neffe claims that whole Twitter fiasco with ATL Housewife Kim Zolciak was a misunderstanding.  Because "The Real Neffe" isn't her:

It was a rude awakening to start my day receiving phone calls about some so-called “twitter beef” I have going on with one of the Atlanta Housewives and one that I don’t even really know. First of all, this twitter account circulating with my name is NOT ME. I don’t even really twitter and I especially wouldn’t spend energy to post anyone’s personal information on a world-wide forum, for what? That serves no purpose to me. Secondly, I am raising a family and have too many daily responsibilities that take up too much of my valuable time t o be involving myself in some petty, childish foolishness.

And please know that I must be growing and changing because even though I am mad as hell that someone feels the need to misrepresent me in the most unnecessary way, I refuse to get involved in a catty battle with someone that I don’t even know. So to the haters, sorry to disappoint if you were expecting me to revert back to behaviors of the past, but I have too much joy in my life to have it be compromised by a false rumor. And with that said, I look forward to really getting deep into this blog and sharing experiences and asking you guys questions that will hopefully move us all in a more positive direction.

"Don't really Twitter". I mean...either you do or you don't. Can't half a half Twitter account. And some kind of way the "fake Neffe: had the correct phone number for Kim. So I don't know. This whole situation seems suspect.

Here's what "The Real Neffe" posted on Twitter before this statement came out:
