Miss me? I am currently on vacation with Baby Daniel in the middle of the French Rivera, so posting will be slow until after July 4th. On to the links!

My spiddy senses tell me that Kim Porter is fuming right now. Flicks of Claudia Jordan and Diddy have getting cozy have leaked to the net. A source tells Concrete Loop that “Diddy is feeling her” and “he wants to date her.” What does Maurice Green have to say about this?



Spice 1 [1]

Have you heard the fantastic news? The Spice Girls are getting back together. *slow . . . hand claps* Break out your platform Sketchers.

All five Spices joined together for Thursday's unsurprising announcment at London's O2 Arena. The reunion, rumored—and downplayed—for weeks, was assumed to be a fait accompli once Simon Fuller, the Svengali who first unleashed the group on an unsuspecting public more than a decade ago, announced the quintet would be holding a press conference to "discuss future plans" several days ago.

"We are girl power," said Halliwell, 34. "It doesn't matter how old you are, 5 or 65."


[1] I couldn't help myself. It's not often that I get to make references to West Coast rappers from the 90's.

Real Life Norbit

The phrase "if you like it, I love it" always creeps into my thoughts whenever I see Doug Christie being tugged around town on an invisible dog leash by wife Jackie.

I just couldn't bring myself to watch their reality show on BET J. (Actually, my wack ass cable provider isn't offering the channel in their premium service bundle. But let it be known that even if they were I still wouldn't have tuned in.) Yeah, I peeped their appearance on The Tyra Show, still I choose not to drink the kool-aid they are serving. Black love is beautiful but this is down right scary to me.

The happily married couple is currently in the middle of embarking on a promotional tour for their memoir No Ordinary Love.

Hoe Sit Down

Last week Shar Jackson took two pregnancy tests at her manager's office in Los Angeles -- and both proved she's not expecting. The test took only three minutes and she was all smiles after one of them read not pregnant on the digital screen.

Yac Is Where It's At

CAPTION THIS // Keyshia Cole & Kevin Liles

Yung Joc, LeToya Luckett, Lil' Kim, Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole, LaMichael, T.I., Ray J and others downed glasses of yac at the Courvoisier hosted party to celebrate Atlantic Records 60th Anniversary.

By the end of the night I'm sure someone made the mistake of telling Lil' Kim how bad she really looks. You know how folks act when they are "on that brown."

My Two Dads

I keed, I keed. Have a sense of humor about this medical marvel.
In a statement the singer and his fiancee Tameka Foster issued to The Associated Press on Wednesday (June 27), the couple said: "We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together. We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives." The baby, which is due in the fall, will be the fourth child for recently divorced stylist Foster.

Say your final good byes folks. This is the last post from the BET Awards. I . . . can't take any more. You know how much I love women who piss standing up, so who better to end things with a bang than Snoop.

The Hottest Chick At Bingo Night

Irene Stokes is the type of woman you meet backstage at a Chuck Berry concert. And for that alone I salute her. Although I don't think that her son (Chris Stokes) is big enough for her to role with the Celebrity Mama Mafia but maybe one day Janice and the rest of the girls will let her hang.

Touch me in the morning and skip away like Bobby Jones! I'm so over the BET Awards that its damn near comical but leave it to Norwood to change all of that. Now THIS is what the hell I call delicious tang, my friend. You want a glass?

Serve him up with a side of love me long time and send him this way.

Oh Is That Right?

Alright folks, here we go. Almost immediately after Beyonce's performance (click here to watch) my inbox was filled with messages claiming that she swagger jacked YT. *long pause for dramatic effect* Again. Since I don't keep up with Kylie Minogue "like that" I had no idea. You make the call.




That Was . . . Interesting

I am too through to upload all the pictures from the show, sue me.

T.I.P. or whatever he is calling himself this week teamed up with Courvoisier to celebrate his forthcoming album T.I. vs T.I.P. last night. With the BET Awards in town all types of random Black folks came through to enjoy the open bar and hot wings show Cliff some love.

Unfortunately Young Dro wasn't able to attend because he was busy washing cars on the side of Old National Hwy. but maybe we'll luck up and see him tonight. Hit up Concrete Loop for more flicks.

What's My Momofuqin' Name?

For this I have no words:
Baby Autumn Brown has a name to live up - in fact she has over 25 of them.

The little girl's mother Maria, in keeping with her boxing-mad family's bizarre tradition, decided to give her 25 middle names - all culled from the greatest exponents inside the ring.

Her full name, which left register office staff in Perton, Wolverhampton reeling is: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.

Maria told the city's Express and Star: "The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.

"When I was young I couldn't ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all."

The 33-year-old mother added: "I'm hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It's never done me any harm though."

ASCAP's Rhythm & Soul Awards

The 20th Anniversary ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards were held last night at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Mary J. Blige, Johntá Austin and Jermaine Dupri shared the coveted Songwriter of the Year title.

Quick, Call Al Sharpton!

Frenchie Davis is alleging that she was the victim of racism by a passenger and flight attendants on Alaska Air. The former American Idol contestant plans to speak about the ordeal at a press conference on Thursday in L.A.

Press release via Eurweb:

The “American Idol” vet was seated by the window at 1:30 p.m. for a scheduled 1:55 p.m. take off on Friday. A man and his son had the seats next to Frenchie, but the boy complained that he didn’t want to sit next to the “big black person,” Davis’ rep says.

The man asked Frenchie to put her armrest down between her and the boy, but Frenchie had already fallen asleep as the plane began to taxi down the runway.

According to her rep, the man “stands up and shakes Frenchie violently saying wake up and put the armrest down right now. She tells him to take his hands off her.”

The man allegedly asked flight attendants to call security because this “big black woman is harassing him,” the rep recounts. She says two flight attendants respond, but don't bother to ask Frenchie to tell her side of the story. They just demand that she move.

Activist Najee Ali, who came to Davis' defense during the Antonella Barba-double standard fall out, is slated to speak at the press conference while simultaneously plugging his new line of low carb bean pies. Kidding.

Jesus be another approach to the art of staying relevant without claiming racism.

Baby Love

Just one week after welcoming his first child into the world, Tiger & Elin Woods has released the first photos of their beautiful baby daughter. Pictures of Sam Alexis Woods, born June 18, were posted on TigerWoods.com on Monday, giving the world their first peak of the newborn. Cutie pie!

BET Awards Backstage Creations Talent Retreat

I love Jennifer Holliday like long weekends and free cable but I never realized her wonk game was so strong. Seriously, her eyes are scattered like hash browns. It looks like if you press down on her eye lids those things are going to pop up like the dice inside that plastic bubble on the Trouble game board.

Yeah, I don't think I am going to bother reproducing. I talk about people entirely too damn much.

[Thanks Reen for destroying me, thanks a lot.]
