And Now On To Dumb Ass NFL Players News

- One of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Ron Mexico Michael Vick's co-defendants pleaded guilty Monday in Richmond, Va., to his role in a dogfighting conspiracy he says was financed almost entirely by Vick.

Tony Taylor, 34, who will be sentenced Dec. 14, said he was not promised any specific sentence in return for his cooperation with the government.

The gruesome details outlined in the July 17 indictment have fueled public protests against Vick and prompted the suspension of some of his endorsement deals. Also, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has barred Vick from camp.

- Suspended Tennesse Titan Pacman Jones is expected to sign a deal with Total Non-stop Action Wrestling (TNA) soon.

Last month Jones was charged with two felonies for his alleged role in a Feb. 19 brawl at a Las Vegas strip club that police said led to a triple shooting. The unfortunate incident left a bouncer paralyzed.

Pacman's lawyer insists that the deal currently being discussed with TNA doesn't actually include any wrestling. If he enters a pro wrestling ring, there's a chance he could violate his contract with the Titans.


So Krispy

Chocolate Homer Simpson and wife Rachel Roy nabbed a spot on Vanity Fair's best dressed couples list. I'll be the judge of that. Other fashionable folks that topped the annual list include Michelle Bama, Tiki Barber, Lenny Kravitz and Liya Kebede.

Mama Stokes murdered the competition at the BET Awards and she can't get a honorable mention?! Blasphemy. Hand me my picket sign and Pro-Keds, I'm going downtown to protest.

Star Tracks: Amy Winehouse

Stumble young girl stumble. Amy Wino exemplified crackhead-like agility when she lost her balance after sparking up a post-lunch cigarette. I should be the last person to talk about someone tripping over their own steps since I do it at least once a week. Luckily, I live in the South. I can easily play off my goof by cranking dat Souljah Boy while chanting "now what me doooooo it!" immediately after.

No Shit

Star Jones has revealed in a first person essay for Glamour magazine that the "medical intervention" responsible for her dramatic weight loss was the result of undergoing gastric bypass.

In other news, scientists have discovered that water is wet, fire is hot, and Al Reynolds is as zesty as an entire bottle of A1 steak sauce.
Reynolds, who weighed 307 pounds at her heaviest, says her ''out-of-control behavior'' began around her 40th birthday in 2002. Feeling lonely, she turned to food for comfort and gained 75 pounds over the course of 17 months.

''I used to look in the mirror and take pride in my figure, but that was when I was legitimately a full-figured woman,'' she says. ''I'd gradually gone from full-figured to morbidly obese.''

Reynolds opted for surgery after a friend expressed concern about her weight. It was a success, she says, though she found she was ''still consumed with the same anger, shame and insecurity as before.''

Her husband, banker Al Reynolds, encouraged her to begin psychological therapy in the summer of 2005. She learned, among other things, that she ''couldn't control what others thought,'' she says. She began to heal by talking openly about her weight loss to strangers.

Jay-Z = MC Gusto

"Do you wanna know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing."

Calvin Klein wants his royalty paper from Jay-Z. Not that Calvin Klein, but a former BK drug dealer. During a recent stop at Kay Slay's show on Shade 45 he claims that he launched Jay’s career and that Jay’s drug dealing past holds no weight.
“...Calvin Klein, a Brooklyn Don, my legacy speaks for itself. Jay had to take parts of that in order to be who he is,” Klein continued. “You have all these rappers talking about what they did; I don’t take anything away from them other than the fact the life not being theirs. You see James Brown get royalties for people sampling him right? I want my royalties for you sampling me now.”

“...To me Jay‘s a white boy on the inside, no offense to any white boys but to me he’s white boy on the inside and I’m waiting for time to tell what he’s gonna do with the outside of himself ,” Klein continued. “I’m surprised he should have done himself a favor and pout me on his team . How you gon let Akon pull me in , official Konvict. Akon provided the chance and an opportunity for guys like myself , Jay could have done that out the gate but he didn’t.”

After reading this article I couldn't help but let out a hearty chuckle. Number one, he is was a drug dealer name Calvin Klein. Two, his story is basically the movie plot to CB4. Lastly, judging from his photo it looks like he should be helping Beyonce pick out the wig she will be wearing to the 2007 MTV Music Awards instead of selling crack.

Al Reynolds, come get your boy.

I had no idea that Mama Tina was trying to hustle her, ahem, "couture" on HSN until last night during a phone conversation with my best friend. I'm always the last to know! Throwback Beyaki will debut her her clothing line Miss Tina on HSN August 19 at 8 PM and August 20 at 10 AM, 4 PM and 11 PM (all times ET) as part of HSN’s Fall Fashion Week.

"I love the fact that the sizes go all the way up [2 to 24]," (Tina) Knowles said. "There's a forgotten woman who wants a pencil skirt, too, or a blouse that's a little lower cut. Beyonce has backup singers who are full-figured women. Being a woman over 50, I try to think about the things I have going for me and the things I want to hide, like my arms. I'm giving them options with shrugs. I've been a stylist for so many years, I know how to accentuate the positive." (source)

You Got The Juice Now

If you haven't already noticed my shameless plug on the side of the site, I nabbed a spot on this year's Juice list. One point for Team Chunk. That's not bad considering I started out 2 years ago not having a clue about this so called "blog game" other than the fact that I enjoyed doing it. So if you have been thinking about creating your own blog, DO IT.

If you're a hater or critic, do your job. By all means. I talk shit about people day in and out on this blog so I would expect someone to do the same to me. If you can dish it out, you can take it in. Bloggers (and people in general) should always remember that. Besides it's only the internet, shit! Log off and take a nap if its that serious.

But on to Barack.
“For the first time in VIBE’s 14-year history, a political figure graces our cover,” says editor-in-chief Danyel Smith in her Editor’s Letter. “It’s time.” In the exclusive interview — by American Book Award-winning author Jeff Chang — Senator Obama and those closest to him open up about personal sacrifice, his teen years in Hawaii, the Don Imus backlash against hip hop, and being “black enough.” The two cover images were photographed exclusively for the September JUICE issue of VIBE by renowned lensman Terry Richardson.

Weekend Catch Up: Beard Relationship News

The Saturday wedding between Usher and ol' Gucci-grab Tameka never happened. Oh like you didn't already see that one coming.
The wedding between the multiplatinum singer and his longtime girlfriend, Tameka Foster, was scheduled for Saturday. The pair are expecting their first child together sometime this fall.

However, a statement released by publicist Patti Webster exclusively to the AP read: "It was announced today that the wedding ceremony for Usher Raymond, IV and Tameka Foster was canceled. No additional information will be given regarding the circumstances of the cancellation, but we hope the privacy of this matter will be respected." (source)
Sandra Rose has more details to why the wedding was most likely called off.

People reports that Eddie Murphy and Tracy Edmonds are now engaged. Awww! isn't that sweet. Nothing says 'I love you' more than a beard for life. But why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? [1] 'Cause something in the milk ain't clean, that's why!

"Tracey and Eddie were engaged last Wednesday," says the rep. "Tracey and Eddie are both very much in love and are excited about spending the rest of their lives together."

Obligatory Usher & Tameka Gossip

Valencia Foster, Tameka Foster's half sister, is dishing the dirt about her past to the National Enquirer.
Usher’s new bride, Tameka Foster, has a shocking criminal past that she has kept secret from the R&B singer, The Enquirer learned.

Tameka is an ex-con whose first lover was gunned down in a drug-related execution-style shooting.

“Poor Usher has no idea who he’s marrying,” Temeka’s half sister Valencia Foster told The Enquirer. “He’s a wonderful guy- but Tameka is giving him a big-time snow job.”

The scene for deception was set at a “getting to know the in-laws” dinner in Tameka’s hometown of Oakland, Calif., on July 7 as the couple finalized plans for a July 28 wedding.

Valencia, 49, explained that Usher led a prayer before dinner, then turned to her and said: “’You know all the family secrets- tell me about them.’ Before I could say a word, Tameka kicked me so hard under the table she almost put a hole in my leg,” Valencia said.

“Then she pulled me aside and whispered: ‘Don’t tell him anything.’”

Tameka, fleeing from a troubled home life, moved in with Valencia when she was 11. “She arrived with $14 in food stamps in her purse,” recalled Valencia. “She turned out to be a nightmare. (continue)

Court Records show that Tameka has been arrested twice. In 1991, she served 20 days in the Los Angeles County Jail for petty theft and was placed on probation for two years. Records indicate she had previously served jail time.

We all have done things in the past that we aren't necessarily proud of so I'm not going to judge Tameka. Don't get me wrong, I still think she consulted with Mama Tina for a custom crafted roots box, but if someone looked at your life under a microscope they are bound to find something.

Besides, you know ol' girl sold that story to the tabloids to buy her kids some new school clothes.

You Two Cents Required: One Hot Ghetto Mess

On Wednesday night my Mama called me cackling, asking me if I were watching BET's 'We Got To Do Better', to which I responded "Girl stop!"

'To Catch A Predator' > Anything on BET

Last night my boyfriend talked me into watching the first 5 minutes of the show and I damn near fell asleep. The reviews haven't been so great either.
While there were examples of trifling behavior and crazy antics, for the most part, the show seemed like a reject reel from "America's Funniest Videos."

Certainly, there are some camps breathing a sigh of relief: The show was roundly criticized even before it made its debut by some who feared it was yet another BET show that would degrade black people by presenting offensive stereotypes as comedy.

Given BET's track record, those critics had reason to worry. After all, the Black Entertainment Network has provided a seemingly endless platform for hip-hop thuggery, booty-shaking video girls, lowbrow comedy shows, and Toccara. . .

Instead, the show offered lame video clips that circulated on sites like YouTube months ago, and commercials that wouldn't pass the cable-access test. To make clear the show wasn't trying to pick on black folk, there were also plenty of white faces, as in a clip of a redneck Olympics-style event.

The show was racially balanced — and equally unfunny — on all levels. (source)

Did you think the show lived up to all of the hype surrounding it?


I Vote No
Join Def Jam today in helping to spread the word for the pardon of legendary American musician Ronald Isley. As a member of The Isley Brothers, Ronald Isley's career spans over 50 years, with countless accomplishments and a legacy of uniquely American music that has influenced everyone from the Beatles to Notorious B.I.G.

In an effort to protect Mr. Isley from incarceration for non-payment of taxes, we urge his fans to call, fax or email the White House immediately to help Ronald stay out of prison. The situation is especially urgent because Mr. Isley is currently scheduled to report to begin serving a 3 year sentence on August 7th of this year.
In lieu of the recent charges brought against Mr. Isley, he is currently in the process of a total restitution of his financial obligations to the IRS. Mr. Isley has also offered to perform for troops at various military bases to help heal the country and show his support for their tireless efforts to protect this country. It is important to point out that Ronald Isley has no prior criminal record, and has been a law-abiding, taxpaying employer since 1956. There is also concern that due to a variety of health issues, (Mr. Isley suffered a stroke in 2004 and was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2006) without proper care Mr. Isley's health could decline further and there is genuine concern as to whether he could survive a lengthy incarceration.
Look, I'm sorry that Mr. Biggs has health issues and all that geriatric shit but maybe he should've thought about that before he decided not to pay his taxes for 20+ years. That sounds like a personal problem.

Furthermore, why did it take so long for this little Free Mr. Clark [1] movement to begin? If I were in his shoes I would've had my ass down at the Elks Lounge every weekend campaigning for freedom after I discovered I would be going to the clink. Yup, picture me posted up in VIP making it rain with Geritol and Viagra while simultaneously drenching my mate with vanilla Ensure. But that's just me.

[1] I watch Lean On Me twice a week. It keeps me spiritual grounded.

Kizzy Rowland once wished her skin tone was lighter before Mama Tina reassured her that she was beautiful just the way she was.
"It's said that brown-skinned girls don't sell magazines and that's so sad," the sexy songbird tells next month's Essence. "I remember wishing I was more fair-skinned, but Tina Knowles, Beyoncé's mom, would say, 'Don't you know how beautiful you are?' She made me come into my brown beauty. I didn't get it, but now I do. I am chocolate and beautiful and loving it." (source)

Remy Ma Shesus Khryst Trailer

Female rappers have more issues than Time magazine. When I was in 8th grade I had aspirations of becoming a femcee but thankfully I was too busy trying to scam kids out of their allowance to actually go through with it. Slanging candy and Little Debbie snacks was a better hustle move, not to mention it didn't require much work.

But I digress.

Kudos to whoever came up with the idea of Remy standing in the middle of the dirt road behind my Grandpa's house dressed crucifixion sharp. Mel Gibson ain't got shit on you.

Katrina LaVerne is back with a new look for her upcoming album Da Baddest Bitch 2.
