The IRS Aint Got Nothin' On Mama Retha+Because "Whoop That Trick" Just Wasn't Enough+Other Fabness

​ ​ ​ ​
Sources say Mama Retha is having issues with the IRS.  She may be in danger of losing her Detroit mansion all because of a late tax/fee payment of $445 back in '05...which has now turned into owing over 19k in back taxes and fees.  Damn.  I bet you I can guess where she hides all her mula.... Yeah, I just don't see this ending up well.  Pimpalicious Terrance Howard has copped his own record deal.  His musical stint in Hustle & Flow gave this dude some inspiration.  Reportedly:"The full name [of the project] is Terrence Howard Presents Me and the Band of Kings,” says a label rep, who adds that the group’s as-yet-untitled debut CD “is slated for a fall release."This ought to be interesting.Tracey Edmunds will appear on Our World with Black Enterprise this Sunday.  And she's talking about her mogul status, not Eddie.On why she doesn't like to be called a mogul:"I don’t really assign that [title] to myself. I hear people put that label on me. It’s really flattering and I really appreciate it, but when you know that someone’s given you that label, you know you are being watched very closely. A lot of people overanalyze and critique everything you do.”On how she feels about using her looks to land a job:“If I were to be honest with you, I think if someone were to consider me attractive, it may help sometimes to get a meeting. But people know my reputation. They know I’m professional and they aren’t going to cross the line.”Interesting. It airs on TV one at 1p est.Snoop may be getting his own show on Comedy Central next season.  About what?  Who knows.  The real question here is, will Shante be back for the cameras and face time? Fresh posted this new album cover of Lil Marlon.  I actually think it's kinda cute.  E for Effort Lil Mama.And YBF celebs participated in a Public Service Announcement that premiered last night in response to gay teens being murdered simply because of who they are.  Ashanti, Andre 3000, Janet, Estelle, and others all appear in the PSA.  Fabulous.The Randomness:
  1. So Missy previewed her 7th album last night.  Has it really been that many?

I know it is kinda late and off topic, but I just picked up the MJB, Growing Pains CD and I am LOVING IT! I really slept on that CD! MJB is that chick! Ne-yo wrote alot of songs on her CD and brotha did his THING with MJB! (Not to slight the other songwriters on the CD) I'm just talking about Ne-Yo specifically because all of the songs that I LOVE, Ne-yo wrote/coproduced all of them. IMOO, PURE FABULOUSITY!!!

I was listening to a CD that AF did years ago... And, Aretha's voice back in the day was so crisp and clear...The range that she hit those high notes brought chills(literally) to my body and shook my soul..Her CD moved me so much, brought tears to my eyes!! Retha is still and will always remain, A Queen!

What is up with these

What is up with these celebrities not paying their taxes? I mean seriously, Aretha has millions ok maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars and she couldn't chalk up a measley $445 late fee. SMH ========================================================================= People don't give Tracey Edmonds enough credit. She didn't need Eddie Murphy for a hook-up. The woman had it going on long before he came into the picture. Although I'm not a fan of much of BET's programming these days, I have to admit that they turned College Hill around from it's first season. Our World is actually a decent show. Sometimes the interviews are corny, but its good nonetheless. LOL. Congrats to the show for being nominated for an NAACP Image Award. =========================================================================== Is it me or does Ashley L. from College Hill Atlanta kinda favor Lil' Mama?

Don't see my first post so

Don't see my first post so ....here it is again: FYI: Natasha this tracey edmonds interview is from last year like sept. oct 07' and has repeated several times...most recently about a month or so ago. I'm noticing you plugging the show recently...what's that about. Just curious. _________________________________________________________________ Terrence Howard and a recording deal?? WTF. Maybe he can fool us like he has in his movies into making us think he talks like a man when he really talks like a girl. ___________________________________________________________________ Lil mama....is really a grown ass woman. I'm not falling for the publicist spin. You ain't slick.

Just an FYI-- Hey Natasha

Just an FYI-- Hey Natasha this is a repeat episode of of Our World with Tracey Edmonds from last year (prob. like sept or oct). They've shown it several times...most recently about a month ago. Out of curiousity are you working for them or something? B/c it's just been recently that you started to "promote" this show that I don't think too many ppl watch (I catch it from time to time but that's just me). Just curious. ____________________________________________________________________ Terrence howard and a record deal?? WTF? Let's hope he bring his acting skills to the album like when he makes up believe he can talk like a man (instead of in reality his girl voice). I do know he can play the guitar...so maybe it'll be an instrumental album. ____________________________________________________________________ Lil mama does have the right name....b/c she looks like and older mama. No matter what they do I just can't see looking like a regular teenager.

The IRS don't play. I don't

The IRS don't play. I don't know if these stars are just ignoring the tax bills and spending it on clothes, cars and jewels or they have accountants that are not handling their business. Aretha better take a tip from Wesley and get her finances in order or she will go the way of Red Roxx and Sammy Davis Jr.

So just because you like

So just because you like Aretha, she gets to be a non dressing fatass? I don't get it. Yeah, yeah, I know I'm sooooo disrespectful. Whatever. I think she sings very well also, and who knows what r&b would've been without her. But please, she needed to worry more about her taxes and less about who called her the "queen". So ignorant and back asswards. It's cool though, maybe she can stay in Queen Tina's european castle for a while....heehee

Cathy Hughes did a TV1 One on

Cathy Hughes did a TV1 One on One interview with Aretha recently and Cathy discreetly asked about her attire. Paraphrasing: Aretha basically said she knows FASHION and that she could care less about what people think about her fashion choices, with some tude! I understood then why she looks the way she does...she THINKS she knows how to dress (therefore no stylist and no one telling her the TRUTH..unless they want to be cussed out). Moreover, she had on the worst wig...this pinkish/red long get up that should have gone in the garbage instead of on her head, expecially for a TV interview, I guess she knows hair too! (therefore her bad/cheap looking wigs instead of a hair stylist to keep her hair tight). Based on her response I'm done but it is still sad, very sad...she could do so much better.

Yes, Terrance and Eva have

Yes, Terrance and Eva have that look...it's not just the eyes, they look related. I read an article on him..had a jones for him...and he is very talented...musically. Retha shoulda put them damn neck bones down and took care of bidness.

This is my first post, but I had to say something about "Lil" Mama. I've caught her a few times on Randy Jackson's America's Best Dance Crew, and I swear that heifa is at least 30. I don't buy her teenage status for a bit, and I'm an educator who knows there are kids who look older than they are...

As for Retha's lack of good

As for Retha's lack of good taste... <> Somebody needs to fire her stylist! Everything Retha wears seems to imply that she needs attention up front. It's one thing to be above her ideal weight, but she clearly over does it with the rinestones and glittery accents right on the areas that need toned down. And what's up with those teeny-tiny spaghetti straps? She could use a thicker strap for better support. Would it be out of line for her man Willie to suggest a new look? To Do List: Contact "The View's" Sherry Shepard's stylist. Miracles can happen
