Gabby Douglas Pledges Allegiance At The DNC + Bill Clinton Serves Up Epic Speech For President Obama

Posted: 06 Sep 2012 07:17 AM PDT

America's sweetheart took another huge stage for her country last night.  Obama fan Gabrielle Douglas hit the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte to lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Check out the cutie performing the huge honor inside, plus how former President Bill Clinton just handed President Obama a rightful pedestal on a silver platter....

In a cute black & white paneled dress and black wedges, Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas flashed her big smile on stage at the DNC last night.  She was there to lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance, and she repped her country well once again:

Her mom Natalie was also in the mix.  Here's video:



And the highlight of the night was, of course, former President Bill Clinton giving an ingeniously clear cut, point-by-point speech about why President O needs to remain in office.  He broke down every argument of the Republicans without breaking a sweat, as well as thoroughly explained the Obamacare Act in plain English, something that has yet to be done.  He essentially hit the stage and taught a class, from an expert perspective, on why the Republican's economic & healthcare plans won't work, and why another 4 years of Obama is necessary. 

Even Fox News had to give him props on the speech that left barely any room for a rebuttal.

And the crowd, as well as social media which essentially overflowed last night, soaked up every bit of it.  It was a speech full of everything Democrats have been attempting to say during this entire campaign.

By the way, this was the first time in history that a former President gave a sitting President the official nomination.  President O. surprised the crowd by joining Mr. Clinton on stage afterwards. 

Check out Clinton's electrifying speech and quotes from it below:

There were two other attacks on the President in Tampa that deserve an answer. Both Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan attacked the President for allegedly robbing Medicare of 716 billion dollars. Here's what really happened. There were no cuts to benefits. None. What the President did was save money by cutting unwarranted subsidies to providers and insurance companies that weren't making people any healthier. He used the saving to close the donut hole in the Medicare drug program, and to add eight years to the life of the Medicare Trust Fund. It's now solvent until 2024. So President Obama and the Democrats didn't weaken Medicare, they strengthened it.

When Congressman Ryan looked into the TV camera and attacked President Obama's "biggest coldest power play" in raiding Medicare, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. You see, that 716 billion dollars is exactly the same amount of Medicare savings Congressman Ryan had in his own budget.

At least on this one, Governor Romney's been consistent.


I think the President's plan is better than the Romney plan, because the Romney plan fails the first test of fiscal responsibility: The numbers don't add up.

People ask me all the time how we delivered four surplus budgets. What new ideas did we bring? I always give a one-word answer: arithmetic.


My fellow Americans, you have to decide what kind of country you want to live in. If you want a you're on your own, winner take all society you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared opportunities and shared responsibilities – a "we're all in it together" society, you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.


"Listen to me now. No president - not me, not any of my predecessors - could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years."


“Are we where we want to be? No. Is the President satisfied? Of course not,” Clinton said. “Are we better off than we were when he took office, with an economy in free fall, losing 750,000 jobs a month? The answer is yes.”


Republicans are less concerned with creating job than making sure President Obama loses his.

Tonight, President Obama gives his much anticipated speech to formally accept the party's nomination.  Actress Kerry Washington is speaking as well.

Chad Johnson Begs For Evelyn Lozada's Love...Again

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 04:28 PM PDT

Oh Chad.  If that foolish tattoo of Evelyn Lozada's face on your leg didn't work, we doubt this t-shirt will.  The ex-Miami Dolphin was spotted out in public yesterday for the first time since the domestic violence situation with Evelyn.  And he's got another plea for her to come back to him....

Rocking a t-shirt that says "I JUST WANT TO LOVE YOU", Chad Johnson was spotted grabbing his fave Cuban eatery in Miami yesterday:

The ex-NFLer hit up David's Cafe.  He ate alone while chatting away on the phone.  These pics surface right after yesterday's pic of the face tattoo he got of Evelyn on his leg.  It's pretty clear these are both pleas to win her back.  He told Twitter fans he doesn't care what she filed for, that's his wife.  Oh.

Too bad Evelyn is too busy on her domestic violence victim promo tour to care.   Good luck with that Chad.

Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent, Nick Cannon & Others Attend Funeral Of Chris Lighty

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 03:47 PM PDT

Rap icon Lauryn Hill was amongst the high profile celebs of the hip hop community who attended the homegoing services for Chris Lighty today.  See pics of Nick Cannon, 50 Cent and others paying their last respects inside...........


Rapper 50 Cent joined celebs like LL Cool J, Missy Elliot, Russell Simmons, Grandmaster Flash, and Mary J. Blige at the Campbell Funeral Chapel in Manhattan today where the body of Chris Lighty (dressed in a black suit) was laid to rest.  50 was Chris' long time client and very close friend.

Diddy attended the services.

Lloyd Banks was on hand to pay respects.

Nick Cannon was also spotted arriving at the memorial.


Warner Music executive Lyor Cohen, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip were among the speakers at the funeral. Also, his brother Dave Lighty tweeted, My greatest hero is laid to rest. Darrell "Baby Chris" Lighty

And Cormega, one of Chris' rap proteges said, He was a leader. A true leader is measured by the success of those he leads and Chris led a multitude of artists, producers, and DJs to success."

Watch a clip of the pallbearers (including  DJ Red Alert & D-Nice) carrying the casket above......

Also, R&B singer Mashonda wrote a touching letter to Chris Lighty's son J (who is close friends with her son Kasseem).  Here's it is in full:

Dear J,

By the time you are old enough to read this letter you might have asked a thousand questions or maybe even figured a few things out on your own. My intentions here are not to write about what happened to your father, but instead to help you to understand what might possibly be happening to you.

It’s important that you know your dad adored you. I can still see him smiling at you as you ran towards him, leaping into his arms and I remember the way your eyes lit up when he entered the room. Baby boy, be brave. And being brave means letting the tears flow and being able to ask for help. There might be an empty space that will take time to fill. Please never be afraid to talk about it; it is important that you do.

Your father has left you a village of strong men and women - and you must know that they will always be there for you and your brother and sisters. On the days when you feel sad and confused, don’t be afraid to draw a picture or listen to your favorite song. Call a friend or one of your beautiful siblings, you will need each other to grow through this. Never hesitate to communicate what you feel. I guess what I’m trying to say J is; express your feelings in a positive way. Never bottle them up.

Grown ups have a way at hiding their pain and not talking about it, not expressing it in a positive way and ultimately it hurts and destroys us, individually and as a community. I want you to know that this can be avoided. There are things that have happened to me as a child and it took me years to realize that my prayers, the grace of God and talking to the right therapist helped me begin to heal.

You are always in my prayers.

Love Always,

Mashonda and Kasseem

SPOTTED: Tracee Ellis Ross & Her Pup Shop For Louboutins In LA

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 03:12 PM PDT


Fab actress Tracee Ellis Ross was spotted grabbing some items to load up her shoe closet in LA recently...with her cute dog in tow.  Check the pics inside...



Former "Girlfriends" and "Reed Between The Lines" star Tracee Ellis Ross was spotted leaving the Christian Louboutin boutique with her cute fluffy white friend tagging along.  She's the newest face of Optimum Salon Haircare's "6-in-1 Miracle Oil" product.  And since we adore her hair, anything she's backing, we're willing to to try at least once.

Tracee recently revealed to the Huffington Post that her mom Diana Ross has always done her own hair and makeup, so that's where she gets her glam inspiration.  She said,

"My mom does all her own hair and makeup, and always has. There are people who have supported her in the process, but for the stage, I have always sat as a little girl and watched my mom do her makeup. Eyelashes, the whole deal — she does it herself."

"I became someone who could do it myself. And I am in love with it. My bathroom is filled with hair and makeup stuff and I play with it all the time. What the real lesson is, is that you can own your own sense of beauty.  It doesn't have to be something you get from somewhere else."

Cute dress by the way.


CAKIN' COUPLE: The Carters Do Dinner In France For Beyonce's Birthday

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 02:19 PM PDT

It was a romantic birthday night for Beyonce as she wined and dined with her very own Cash King Shawn Carter in Antibes, France after hopping off their yacht.  Pics of their arrival inside...

Birthday girl Beyonce rolled to The Michelangelo Restaurant in Antibes to celebrate last night.  She rocked her blonde curls, dark lips and a colorful front zipped dress for her 31st b-day.  All after spending a fabulous day yachting around the Mediterranean with Jay & Blue.

Bey may be away from her friends and some of her fam during her birthday week, but they all sent her handwritten b-day messages.  One of the cutest posted yesterday was from her little sis Solange saying:

'There is no-one like you in the world, of all of your mind blowing achievements that one that first comes to mind is your kindness.  Your sense of selflessness, consideration of other people’s well being and your beautiful generosity are all things that make me so proud be your sister and your friend.'


By the way, congrats are in order for Mr. Carter as he ranks #3 on FORBES' 2012 Hip Hop Cash Kings list. He raked in over $35 mill this past year thanks to his Duracell, Carol's Daughter & Brooklyn Nets deals.

The OTHER Fact Checking: Nicki Minaj NOT Registered To Vote? + DNC's 1st Day Ratings BEAT RNC's Entire 3 Days

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 01:33 PM PDT

Nicki Minaj shocked fans when she gave Mitt Romney a shout-out of support & called others "lazy b*tches", but now it's been revealed she's not registered to vote herself!   Get deets inside and find out about the DNC beating the RNC in ratings.......


We told you earlier about Nicki Minaj recently rapping "I’m a Republican votin' for Mitt Romney/You lazy b-----s is f---ing up the economy" on Lil' Wayne's Dedication 4 mixtape.

In addition to annoyed fans (who were offended by the "lazy b*tches" comment just because they weren't voting for Romney), pundits like RealClearPolitics senior elections analyst Sean Trende added, "There is about a .00000001 percent chance Nikki Minaj was not mocking Romney voters and is actually endorsing Romney."

We don't believe Nicki is voting for Romney.  Or even voting at all for that matter.  The Washington Post has revealed that according to the voter rolls, Onika is not registered to vote in any of the states where she claimed residency in the last few years (NY, CA, GA).  WOMP.

No one said she had to be a spokesperson for voting (opinions on whether all celebs should be though is a separate issue).  But when you make a public controversial comment about voting (likely just to garner attention), and at the same time insult others who are likely registered, you have to expect people to call you on it.  Not every rapper is meant to be believable these days.

And as for reports that Obama supporters and Democrats simply are not interested this election....we're calling B.S. on that too.

The number of tweets per second sent just during Day 1 of the DNC yesterday actually beat the RNC's entire 3 day span, according to reports. There were more than 28,003 tweets per minute during Michelle Obama's speech, which is double the tweets-per-minute mark set by Mitt Romney.

This could likely be a factor as Twitter ratings COULD matter in this election, due to the demographic that participates in that form of news/media. 

Get registered.  T minus 61 days till the election.

BONUS: Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas will be leading the DNC in Pledge of Allegiance tonight. STORY

ATL UPDATES: Scrappy & Erica's Topless Engagement Photos With ROLLING OUT + K. Michelle STANDS BY Her Story + Tiny's Nail Bar Catches On FIRE!

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 12:25 PM PDT

Fresh off airing their "You gon murry a n*gga or what?" proposal on the "Love & Hip Hop: ATL" reunion, Erica Dixon & Lil Scrappy's new engagement photoshoot with Rolling Out has surfaced.


Check out the lovebirds getting topless, stylish & intimate in their new pics inside.  Plus, K. Michelle is far from scared of Memphitz's lawsuit, and Tiny's Nail Bar caught on fire this week...

Topless and tatted up, rapper Lil Scrappy is posing it up with his baby moms turned co-star turned fiancee Erica Dixon for the new issue of Rolling out magazine.  And Erica's showing off her new engagement ring.  Whoever asks where it ain't even right.

Pretty pic.

About the engagement, Erica told the magazine:

“I’m in a very good place in my life right now.  I learned so much about myself through this process with the show, and now I’m just looking forward to this next chapter in my life.”

And Scrappy dished on what made him finally take the leap of marriage saying:

“It was time for me to do something really grown.  So I popped the question and the beautiful lady said yes … that’s why she has the ring on her finger. But now we’re just waiting for the next big step. I wasn’t trying to play around with it for a hundred years. I wanted to do something really big. “

I wish them the best.  Erica is one of the chicks with the most potential on the show...just to win in life.  Hopefully this decision works out for them.

After yesterday's whammy of a lawsuit by Memphitz, who is suing "LAHH ATL" star K. Michelle, Monami Ent., & Viacom for millions, K says she couldn't care less.  And she's standing by her story.  Her statement to TMZ goes as follows:

"I've always been told that the truth shall set you free. I stand behind my story 100%. I came on the 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' show mainly because I wanted to give a voice and bring light to a very serious issue."

"I am very grateful to VH1 and Monami Ent. for the opportunity to tell my story, and touch lives worldwide ... I look forward to having my day in court and finally having the truth of my story confirmed in a court of law."

"Hopefully others will not have to go through this and then have their stories challenged to this degree because people now want to try to salvage whatever reputation they may have had."

She's already lawyered up for her fight against Memphitz in court.  This ought to get interesting...


And if you tried to hit up Tiny's Nail Bar this week in Atlanta, and were met with a locked door, it's not because folks just didn't show up for work.  It's because Tameka "Tiny" Cottle's nail salon caught fire on Monday.

According to 11 Alive news:

The Henry County Fire Department responded to a commercial structure fire on Walt Stephens Road just after 5 a.m. When they arrived to the shopping center, they saw heavy smoke coming from the salon. They fought heat and tried to contain the fire before it spread to businesses next door.

Captain Sabrin Puckett said, "Fortunately fire personnel were able to control the fire before the entire contents of the structure ignited and making it much more difficult to determine the cause and origin in the investigation."

Tiny has yet to comment.  But hopefully she and her employees can get back to working out their embellished nail game soon.

Ashanti LANDS Gig As "Fuse News" HOST + Po Johnson DROPS "Do It Again" VIDEO

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 11:38 AM PDT

Singer Ashanti's got a new job!  She will host a new entertainment show on FUSE TV called "Fuse News."  Get the deets inside and watch Po Johnson's new "Do It Again" video.


FUSE has announced that R&B singer Ashanti will host and executive produce a new daily 30-minute program offering a daily breakdown of the latest music news.

Ashanti, who co-wrote and sings the show’s theme song of course, will be joined by co-hosts Elaine Moran and Alexa Chung in New York and with Jack Osbourne based in Los Angeles. 

In the meantime, she's also working on her upcoming studio album Braveheart.  She stopped by "Kathie Lee & Hoda" this morning to dish about the new show and more. 

It's basically a music news show that's filling the void.  We use to have TRL back in the day on MTV.  And they kind of went toward reality tv.  This is something we're going to pioneer and inject something back into music.  We'll be talking about album sales,  iTunes, and maybe we'll get a little bit into the relationships of who's dating who.  We'll be watching new videos, new artists, performances, it's going to be really cool."

About her album, she revealed:

It's something for women to be empowered by.  The album, is amazing.  It's kind of deep.  I'm going places I've never gone before.  

And yes, she wrote every cut off the LP.  Love that.  Check out her interview video above.


And in music videos.........

Po Johnson, the cousin of LaLa Anthony, has jumped into the music game with her debut single "Do It Again."  Check out her brand new video above.  Do you think she has a career in music?


MORE TEARS: Sneak Peek Of Evelyn Lozada On "Iyanla: Fix My Life"

Posted: 05 Sep 2012 10:50 AM PDT

Evelyn Lozada is indeed making her promo rounds amidst domestic violence situation.  Check out a preview of her trying to get her life on Iyanla Vanzant's new show on OWN...

The premiere of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” features life coach Iyanla Vanzant confronting the heartbreak and personal crisis of “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada, who is now the estranged wife of NFL star Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Vanzant works to uncover the source of Lozada's innermost pain, giving her the tools to let go and move forward with her life. Explosive secrets are uncovered and difficult truths are faced in the powerful two-part series premiere airing Saturday, September 15 and 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

On the premiere episode, Iyanla traveled to Miami to meet newlyweds Chad & Ev to explore the couple’s publicly volatile relationship. Despite Chad choosing not to participate in the session, Iyanla and Ev connected one-on-one and tapped into the deep-rooted anger, resentment and insecurities that have plagued Evelyn.  And were all pretty evident on "Basketball Wives."

Weeks later, after the shocking allegations of a domestic violence incident came to light, Iyanla reconnected with an emotionally raw Lozada in New York for a no-holds-barred conversation that details the eye-opening events of the night that led Evelyn to file for divorce.  Peep the video sneak peek below:

I wonder what Iyanla has to say about Chad's delusional new tattoo.
