Mr. Papers Reveals His Boo Lil Kim Is Having A Boy!!

Mr. Papers Reveals Lil Kim Is Having A Boy!!
As I reported a few days ago, it's been confirmed that Mr. Papers is indeed the father to Lil Kim's baby. Mr. Papers himself even commented on Instagram. 

Peep that here:
So it should come as no surprise that Mr. Papers has revealed some details regarding him and Kim's relationship status....which is they are still together, that Lil Kim is having a boy in about May or June and she is about 6 months pregnant. However, Mr. Papers didn't want to reveal the name he and Kim came up with for their baby boy.

Angela Stanton tells Phaedra Parks GIRL BYE! You're a LIAR!

Angela Stanton's Attorney Wants Phaedra Park's DEFAMATION Suit Dismissed...Says Angela Told The Truth And Phaedra Knows It!

As "RHOA" star Phaedra Parks continues her Secrets of The Southern Belle book tour and Apollo Nida guards his grill against federal charges for fraud and identity theft, the lawyers for Angela Stanton (whom Phaedra filed a $30M lawsuit against) are striking back.  They want a judge to see through Phaedra's B.S. and force her to pay Angela's mounting attorney fees, as well as dismiss the case.

A while back, we told you about Angela's tell-all book, Lies of a Real Housewife (it linked both Apollo and Phaedra to several elaborate federal racketeering schemes) and now Angela's lawyer wants to know why Phaedra won't sit for a deposition related to the lawsuit she filed against Angela that essentially said all her claims were a lie.

A few months ago, Phaedra was all set to defend herself (when she initially filed the lawsuit) but now she and her legal team have repeatedly dodged efforts from Angela to hear Phaedra's side of the story. Now, Angela's lawyer, James Radford, has filed a motion asking a judge to dismiss Phaedra's lawsuit for three reasons:

1. Phaedra has placed no evidence supporting her claims (pg. 15)
2. There is no evidence to support claims that statements Angela made were false (pg. 19)
3. Phaedra has not proven malice or reckless regard for the truth (pg. 21)

And we're sure it helps Angela's case that Apollo DID get recently arrested on fraud charges that were similar (if not the same) to what Angela originally said...and what Phaedra originally sued her for saying.
The lawyer is also asking that Phaedra be forced to pay Angela's attorney fees (since she's the one dragging the case out).

And the House of Parks may just be crumbling before our eyes.  Somebody get Phaedra's mama a church fan...

Mandeecees Is Not Out of Prison!!!
Fellow Blogger and former Gossip Show star and radio host on Thisis50 Vivian Billings Yesterday posted up an article posing the question, "Is Mandeecees A Free Man?". And the reason she posed that question was because according to Mandeecees Instagram page, he was having drinks and asking people if they missed him.
Well, when she posed the question on Twitter, Kimbella (Yandy's best friend) said that Mandeecees was NOT out of prison and that that was a lie.
Peep their Twitter conversation below:
So there you have it folks!! False alarm! Mandeecees is not out!!
But since he's NOT out.....I'm wondering who decided to update his Instagram page? Hmmmmm......let that marinate!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Take North Out in NYC
Attempting to head out for a night on the town, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took baby North out in New York City
The proud parents stuck together as they made their way out of their soho pad while a gaggle of fans and paparazzi flooded the entryway.
In other news, Kim is always showing off her fashion sense, and lately she has been sharing all of her "outfit of the day" items with her fans.
Talking about one of her favorite jackets, a yellow long Max Mara piece, Kardashian gushed, "Ever since last fall, this coat has definitely become a wardrobe staple for me. It’s so versatile for any situation… stepping out for a red carpet or even running errands around NY. I’m so obsessed with it I had to get it in a few more colors, black and camel. Check out how it was styled for Max Mara’s AW13 collection. Xo."

Brandy Engagement to Ryan Press on Hold Pending ‘Relationship Re-evaluation’
After much speculation, Brandy’s engagement to her manager Ryan Press has been put on hold.
A source close to the couple confirmed that Brandy and Ryan’s wedding is off for now.
Sister 2 Sister reports that the status of the engagement shifted after the couple moved in together.
As a result, they have have supposedly decided to take some time apart in order to reportedly re-evaluate their relationship and determine whether they actually should get married.

While the possibility of getting back together hasn’t been completely thrown out, it could be a moot point in light of rumblings of Ryan being set up on a date recently. They may be personally on hiatus, but professionally things are still cool in light of Ryan still being Brandy’s manager.

To date, Brandy or Ryan has not commented on the current status of their relationship. In the meanwhile, Brandy is gearing up for the next season of “The Game,” which will premiere at 10 p.m. March 4 on BET.

NeNe Leakes Cast on Dancing With The Stars?
It appears that Nene may have a new Gig coming up, sourcing are stating that she has been casted on Dancing With The Stars for this upcoming season.
EOnline reports:
ABC does not comment on casting rumors, however multiple sources tell E! News exclusively that NeNe Leakes has been cast in the upcoming 18th season of DWTS, set to premiere March 17.

If this is true, the congratulations…. I guess! Speaking on RHOA, it seems as if Phaedra bailed on her Defamation case against Angela Stantonafter Angela published her memoirs, ‘Lies of a Real Housewife’, accusing Phaedra of masterminding a criminal enterprise that landed Angela behind bars. Well according to her attorney Ms. Phaedra missed her chance to fight….

“I have received numerous inquiries about this motion today. Rather than comment on it, I am publishing it here. I’d prefer to let the pleading speak for itself. In sum, we are seeking summary judgment in favor of Angela Stanton, against Phaedra Parks, on defamation claims asserted by Ms. Parks. All the evidence that has been developed in this case points to the truth of Ms. Stanton’s book, Lies of Real Housewife, and Ms. Parks has failed to put on any evidence to support her claims. Ms. Parks has not sat for her own deposition. We are also seeking sanctions in the form of attorneys fees due to what we believe to be frivolous litigation.”

DOWN FOR THE CAUSE: Savannah James Collects Tickets At Hometown Children’s Fashion Show For Autism
It’s always nice to see a REAL basketball wife giving back. Miami Heat star LeBron James’ wife Savannah James went back to her hometown of AkronOhio to attend a children’s fashion show put on by her best friend, Amber.

When she's not attending fancy events with her star hubby, she makes time to give back to others.  And keeps it down to earth in the process.
Mrs. James traveled to Ohio this weekend to show support for her friend’s 1st annual children’s fashion show to raise autism awareness.
And she was even collecting tickets from guests as they arrived to the event.  Love that she's at that door the door collecting tickets!

Nice to see her in touch with reality...and what really matters.
Fab times!

Black Twitter Drag’s BBWLA Newbie Brittish Williams ‘Weave Tracks’!
I am really trying to like this Brittish character, but it is truly not working in her favor, last night while doing her confessionals “Black Twitter”, who notices everything saw one of her weave tracks showing…. In addition to the visible tracks, the unblended and dry 2 inch leave out bothers me as and them as well. Check out the dragging they gave her after the break!
After the whole dragging incident she then responded with this:
If you’re going to have a little leave out, make sure your hair is thick enough to cover the track. That is all.

Khloe Kardashian Says, ‘I Have No Regets’ In Marriage To Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian is ready for a fresh start. The 29-year-old long time reality starlet had a tough 2013, filing for divorce from Lamar Odom, who has been battling a drug problem. News of his addiction rocked the couple, who married in 2009 after just three weeks of dating. Since then Kardashian has gotten her groove back (sorta kinda). Late last year, she was rumored to be dating LA Dodgers star Matt Kemp and has been hanging tight with rapper The Game. The April Cosmopolitan cover girl talks with mom Kris Jenner (who conducted the interview) about her family, having no regrets in her marriage and being happy. Peep the excerpts below.

Holding her personal issues in:
I’m not a big ‘cry on a shoulder’ person. I’m very introverted when it comes to my own stuff. Everyone has issues, and I’m not someone who likes to burden people.  I got into a car accident yesterday, and no one knew until hours later. I said, ‘Oh, my back hurts.’ If it had been Kim, she would have called everyone saying, ‘Help! I’m stranded!’ That’s just how I am. I hold things in. I don’t know why.
Having her family as a support system:
We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone, which makes me think about what I’m doing in life more. I have such a great support system here, we’re so judged when we leave these walls that we try to never do that to one another here.
Being criticized for her marriage failing:
People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, ‘Fine, we won’t show it anymore.’ I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go.

Thoughts on mom, Kris and stepfather, Bruce being separated:
There was no scandal. There was no bad blood. You’re just happier apart. You are nicer to each other now. You get excited to see each other at dinners. It makes me sad that people think Bruce is no longer a part of my life. I talk to him every day! I consider him my second father.

Being happy and living for today:
I live for the moment. If you think too far in the future, you might get disappointed or set the bar too low, it sucks at times, but everything happens for a reason, no matter how s—-y your circumstances are. To say where I want to be in 10 years…I have no idea. I just know that I want to be happy and smiling.

Wanting kids in the future:
I love kids. I hope and pray I have kids when the time is right.

Cute for her!

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Scrappy Dumped By Bambi, Is Diamond of Crime Mob Pregnant?
Bambi actually thought she could take the place of Erica and especially shay, just last week his own mother hinted at him cheating on Bambi with Shay and she was going in on Shay via Instagram… Fighting a losing battle. I remember when Scrappy tried to shade his baby mother Erica saying how Bambi was a better woman than her! Funny how the tables have turned!

According to Bossip, Bambi took to Instagram to confirm that she is indeed single and Scrappy did the same:
Speaking of Scrappy, his ex boo thang Diamond is looking real pregnant these days, in case you don’t know she is mostly known for infamously being slandered by Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Momma Dee for leaving her son Lil Scrappy for Soulja Boy  and she was spotted with a hinted belly. At first I thought it could just be bloat,  but then someone in the comments pointed out she definitely looked pregnant in a earlier pic with Rapper Mystikal weeks ago so I went to his page and found the pic:
She responded to a commenter that asked if she was pregnant or having a little Soulja Girl ? Maybe insinuating that she could be pregnant for Soulja Boy?  She says:   I’m not pregnant l, I just finished grubbin , Lol…. Okay maybe she isn’t and her weight fluctuates especially if stress is involved… Maybe, Maybe not… We will have to just see… I know your wondering why I put this story with Scrappy, because they fit together and she is not that deserving of a separate post!

LL Cool J to Kanye West “Stop Complaining”
LL Cool J was on the Arsenio Hall show 25 years ago making his rap debut and now he is back, the Rap veteran turned NCIS star  who was the first hip-hop artist to appear on late-night TV, co-signed some of today’s stars including Kid Ink, Tyga, and Chris Brown.
 “They remind me of me when I first started,” said LL, who appears on the remix to Kid Ink’s “Main Chick.” “So I was happy to get on that song.”

He also acknowledged ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, and Kanye West “when he’s not complaining.”
“I love you man, but you gotta stop complaining,” LL told Yeezus before joking, “Don’t hit me.”
Plus, he spit an impromptu version of his 1987 classic “I Need Love” and explained how Michael Jackson once punked him.

Eddie Murphy Targeted in $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit
Eddie Murphy’s last name is taking center stage in a new lawsuit from a comedian with the same last name.
TMZ reports that Brando Murphy has brought a $50 million defamation lawsuit against the comic veteran.
Brando Murphy claims that Eddie is determined to destroy his comedy career. According to the young comic, Eddie’s determination to ruin him stems from absurd vanity.
The name Murphy is of Irish decent … and not exclusive to Eddie Murphy, a ‘Black Man’ of African Ancestry and a purported African American,” stated Brando, who maintains that he never tried to pass himself off as Eddie’s son.
Although he denies assuming the identity of Eddie’s soon, Brando’s claim did not touch on the most glaring contradiction to his argument, the fact that he took part in the Sons of Comedy tour with Richard Pryor‘s son. In his lawsuit, the young comic also claims that one of Eddie’s people threatened to have him killed.

From the looks of it, Team Eddie isn’t too worried about Brando or his lawsuit.
 “This is an absolutely ridiculous lawsuit, and we are confident it will be immediately dismissed by the court,” the comedian’s lawyer, Marty Singer, told TMZ.

Is Naomi Campbell Terrorizing Casts Members on The Face?

Naomi Campbell Terrorizing Cast on The Face
Naomi Campbell said to be terrorizing the cast an crew on the set of The Face.

Here’s one face that’s scaring everyone on “The Face,” and it belongs to its star, hot-tempered supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Fellow models on the competition TV series are whispering about her diva behavior and the odd beauty tricks she’s using while serving as both executive producer and a coach.
“She’s taping her face skin back, which makes it look tighter, and hiding the evidence with her fabulous wigs,” one show insider tells Confidenti@l. “She’s a monster. She fought with everyone on set.”
Campbell has also become extremely picky about her TV makeup and has sometimes repainted her own face after the professionals worked on it.
“She’s now not allowing anyone to do her makeup,” says our source. “She was taught by Kevyn Aucoin and thinks she knows better than everyone. She gets upset with them, then does it herself.”

Then there are Campbell’s wacky demands — like banning staffers’ greetings until she says hi first.
She also kicked off the season by failing to show at a promotional presser on Jan. 30, forcing reporters, including our own, to wait nearly three hours at NBC-owned Oxygen’s 30 RockefellerCenter headquarters .
“They said her driver was stuck (around the corner!) in Times Square traffic,” according to one source who was there.

The U.S. version of “The Face” also stars Victoria’s Secret beauty Anne V and socialite-turned-model Lydia Hearst as coaches, while the Australian version stars Down Under hotties Nicole Trunfio and Cheyenne Tozzi, who are tasked with finding a model to front a campaign for a major brand.
Anne V and Hearst come on the heels of Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova, who left after just one season. While we hear the reason for Coco’s departure was solely Campbell’s behavior, Oxygen officials have denied that’s the case.
Coco is a nice girl, and she honestly couldn’t be around it anymore,” our source explains.
“Naomi is all over all of them, and she starts fights. She can be a monster to the girls. She needs to be the queen bee.”
Another set insider tells us that Campbell is a “full-on diva” from the minute she arrives for taping. “She refuses to talk to anyone off set,” says our source.
We’re told there’s been no shortage of screaming leading up to the season-two premiere, airing on March 5, which also features host Nigel Barker.
“Nigel and Naomi are friends off camera, so she has no issues with him. It’s always with the girls,” says our source.

“As an executive producer and mentor, Naomi is a true professional on set and works tirelessly with our contestants, teaching them best practices and sharing the secrets that have led her to become one of most successful supermodels in the world,” says an Oxygen Media rep. “Any reports otherwise are completely false.”

R.H.o.A Teasips: Kenya has some fierce words for NeNe Leakes!

Kenya Slams NeNe for Being a Bad Friend!
Kenya Moore slams NeNe Leakes for turning on former bffs Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton...

Kenya writes on her Bravo blog,
According to NeNe I bullied her to come to the ball! Aside from seasons prior to my debut on the show, I have personally witnessed NeNe’s acts of terrorism. I have never threatened anyone by being made to choose to be on my side or else suffer the consequences; I don’t use my status on the show or intimidation tactics to try to sabotage other Housewives’ success on the show; and I certainly don’t “unfriend” people who don’t agree with me. I don’t subscribe to this type of egregious self-serving behavior. There are children suffering, even dying from being bullied. Let’s not further exploit the word in order to gain sympathy, it only diminishes those who are truly victims.
NeNe has spent a lot of her time unnecessarily blaming me for her pillow talk party instead of looking to herself. She has never apologized to me for how she treated me that night, or her role in the fight that ensued. NeNe has never once apologized to me for the way she behaved at the ball. She never apologized to Peter or Cynthia for the manner in which she consistently emasculates and disrespects her best friend’s husband.
Furthermore, NeNe is using pillow talk gate to justify why she has targeted me as her enemy. I have personally done nothing to NeNe but try to be her friend, even apologizing for something that wasn’t solely my fault as she insists. Even if I was to blame for the pillow talk melee, which I am not, is that a reason to disown someone as a friend? Her cruelty and nastiness towards me is completely unfounded and based on her own insecurities. With that said, I refuse to dim my light in order to make her comfortable.

Wasn’t it NeNe who said “no bitch is going to tell her who she can be friends with” in reference to inviting my ex to her wedding? Clearly, my feelings didn’t matter, to add insult to injury they are not even friends. Point being, Marlo should have a right to be friendly with me. Cynthia has been the most blindly loyal friend NeNe has probably ever had. Yet, the moment Cynthia did not agree with NeNe calling her husband countless bitches, NeNe turns on Cynthia as if she has somehow been disloyal to her. Most of us are smart enough to see beyond NeNe’s smoke screen. The moment Marlo becomes friendly with me, she is labeled a turncoat opportunist. Hypocrisy at its best. NeNe does photo ops with Kim Kardashian, but Marlo is the opportunist? #byefelicia
The truth remains the truth. Her arrogant “I am better than everyone else attitude” is hard to stomach. Even her most loyal fans can see her true colors and no Kool-Aid in the world is worth dying over. After seeing how disposable her long time friends are to her as she discards them like trash if they dare go against her, she is no one’s friend only a dictator in her own mind. I don’t need friends like her in my life.

OH TEAS PLEASE? Is Phaedra And Apollo Living Separately?

Phaedra And Apollo Living Separately?
Is it curtains for Apollo and Phaedra’s relationship? That’s what the streets is saying.

Y’all know its going down over at casa da Nida [or is it Parks? hmmmm]. Anyway, Radar online is reporting the gossip. As you know we are keeping a healthy distance from the story. So Phaedra save your phone call. It aint us.

From Radar Online,
RadarOnline.com has learned that the Real Housewives of Atlanta couple have actually been living separate lives for weeks — and haven’t been photographed together since last November!
Instead of standing by her man’s side as he prepares for the next round of his trial in March, Parks has chosen to launch a book tour for her advice guide Secrets of a Southern Belle – even though it was released more than three months ago.
Meanwhile, her husband Nida made a trip of his own to South Carolina, where he was spotted partying with other women at a local nightclub on Valentine’s Day.


The Daily Buzz for Feb 27

WATCH: Beyonce – “Partition” (Full Clip)
Beyoncé has rolled out the full visual to her song “Partition,” from her self-titled album that she dropped late last year.

The video, which features her hubby Jay Z as her love interest, opens with a robe and lingerie-clad Yoncé sitting at the breakfast table eying her man. She then finds herself daydreaming about the two of them getting up close and personal with some backseat intimacy, and she hits the stage in some skimpy attire to tease him with a dance.
In video commentary to the album, Beyoncé talked inspiration for the clip saying:
The day that I got engaged was my husband’s birthday and I took him to Crazy Horse. And I remember thinking, ‘Damn, these girls are fly.’ I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show I’ve ever seen. And I was like, ‘I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man…’ So that’s what I did for the video.

Watch as Bey seduces her man in the “Partition” video: 

MC Lyte: ‘Never say never’ about an openly gay mainstream rapper
MC Lyte is a pioneer and legend within the hip hop community. The “Light As A Feather” emcee is also an active philanthropist. In honor of Black History Month, Lyte’s teamed with AT&T  28 Days campaign, which encourages children to give.
She sat down with The website theGrio talk about poetry, who is she currently listening to, and if there can ever be a successful openly gay mainstream rapper.

theGrio: MC Lyte, thank you for sitting down with us.
MC Lyte: Absolutely, thank you. Thank you very much for the platform.

Tell me about the 28 Days campaign. You’ve been tapped to lead a team and help a nonprofit organization with your charity efforts.

Absolutely, I’m honored to be a participant even at the level of a coach for the 28 days, but it’s all about taking a look at history but also being able to step out in the forefront and make history. That is what I like so much about this campaign. We can also further that mission and with the team that I have, physically we’re helping out an organization called “Write Girls.” This is completed up my alley. They have these workshops to empower young girls to write out what it is they are feeling, to use their imagination or to just open up.

How has poetry impacted your life and how you can give that knowledge and experience to your team?

As a kid, my mother had me write everything. I had to write an essay for everything that I wanted to do that was extracurricular based. So if you wanted to go roller skating, play hand ball, it was always an essay. It was short but none the less you had to be able to write and convince her that I needed to be outside of the house.  I used to think hip-hop was that but the mainstream has sort of had its way with it.

Now a lot of the focus is put on being at the top of the charts, being more popular so that you can be on the cover of someone’s magazine. Whereas poetry stays true to the community, true to the people who wrote it. Because mainstream is not trying to get a hold of it to make money, it’s been able to keep its purity, which I completely respect and honor.

Your career continues to have longevity. You worked with BET Hip-Hop awards, you’ve been an announcer, and your voice is known. A lot of people don’t understand that there other ways to parlay hip-hop into other careers. You, Queen Latifah, and LL Cool J are some of the few that seem to have made the transition.

Before I wanted to rap I heard people on the radio. I heard celebrities talking on WBLS NYC. I was going to Norfolk State University to be a communications major so that I could eventually be a radio personality. I know that I had something to say; I’m able to use my voice in all sorts of ways.

My manager said something to me very early on my career that was we were going to build my career so it wasn’t dependent upon a hit record. Once we sat down and figured out all of the things I wanted to do prior to rapping which [were] acting, voice, being a voice-over talent and provide artist support and development to other artists.

I feel like there’s a certain element missing especially when it comes to women in hip-hop. It feels like the media will only let one top woman be at the top, right. Are you listening to anyone in hip-hop in this generation?

I enjoy Macklemore. I don’t just like his music. I like him as a person. There are some emcees, I may like a song or a line they said. I might like a body of work. To say I like him as a person, I didn’t know him personally but what he’s able to convey in his music, not just the music, he gets up and accepts an award, talks about Trayvon Martin in his speech, I like that guy. He uses his time wisely, he never lets a movement be wasted and he’s very purposeful and meaningful. That’s what I like about him.

Nicki Minaj has a song [which] she claims is women empowerment, called “Looking A** Ni**a.” When she posted a photo from her Instagram account and the artwork for the single, it was an iconic image of Malcolm X holding a rifle and looking out the window. She claimed, “I’m just trying to convey a message, Malcolm X was trying to make sure he defending from all these ni**as.” She later apologized, but I would assume someone who is from an older generation of emcees would be offended by it.

I’m a little closer to the generation impacted and was directly affected by what would cause that great leader to stand by his window with that piece of machinery, artillery. Was I here for what he did or the passing of him? No. That happened prior to my existence; however I am still of aware of not only what he did for me but what he’s done for us and the world over. Why is it that I cannot tap into what would cause that is because my mind is filled with what really caused that [sic].

Two years ago R&B singer Frank Ocean said that he has been in love with a man at one point in time in his life. And just this year NFL prospect Michael Sam came out of the closet. Do you think we would ever see the day where there is an openly gay mainstream rapper?

I will never say never. Kudos is such a corny word but Kudos to all of the people that you just mentioned for being able to live their lives out loud. If that’s what they needed to do in order to feel free, so be it. With [Michael Sam], I don’t know this story but thank you. You’re actually updating me on news. That’s great for him. I’m sure his life will not be the same. But then, who expects it to be?.

REALLY? Spike Lee CONFIRMS "School Daze" Sequel, Script Completed
After 25 years , director/writer Spike Lee has confirmed that a script for the sequel to "School Daze" has been completed. "School Daze" was loosely based on Spike Lee's experiences at Atlanta's Morehouse College, Spelman College and Clark Atlanta University.  And it set the landscape for what every one who watched the movie expected to experience once they got to college.
The story follows a clash between fraternity and sorority members at a historically black college during homecoming weekend. The movie also touched on issues within the African-American community, such as intra-racism related to skin tone and hair quality.

Spike Lee revealed to Black&Sexy TV:
“I had the script for ‘School Daze.  But, what people have to understand is that it’s a contemporary version. So it’s the same school, Mission College, 25 years later,” explained Lee. “Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap. He’ll be the president now of the school. And we would deal with issues around Historically Black Colleges today.”
Spike says the sequel will examine the same issues young college students faced in the late 80s and will also touch on new issues students face in college today, such as homophia and pledging a fraternity/sorority.
We are only here for this if they keep it REAL for the most part about college like they did in the first one. But...your thoughts?

Kelly's ex-wife), Sheree Fletcher (Will Smith's ex-wife), Mayte Garcia (Prince's ex-wife), Nicole Murphy (Eddie Murphy's ex-wife), Shamicka Lawrence (Martin Lawrence's ex-wife) and newest cast memeber Shanna Moakler (ex-wife of Travis Barker) were all smiles filiming their segment.

Sidebar: Did anybody else watch "Meet The Barkers" in 2005-2006 when Shanna was married to Travis Barker?  Loved it!
46-year-old Nicole Murphy looked SUPER hot in her mini royal blue bikini showing off her toned long legs and washboard abs. She accessorized, like any beach babe would, with big gold hoop earrings, gold body chain and gold bangels.
This woman's body is sick. One can only WISH to look like this at 46 years old.  or any age...
We're assuming she's been working even harder than usual to get ready for her wedding to retired NFL player Michael Strahan (who's currently hosts Live With Kelly And Michael).  
Not sure what else they're waiting on....Probably much harder than it looks.

Andrea showed off her flexibility doing splits on the beach.  Get it...
While Shamicka got cute posing in the sand.
Fun times.
"Hollywood Exes"premieres Wednesday, April 30th at 9:00 PM ET/ PT on VH1.

Mario Snaps A Pic In His Boxers
If folks don’t start supporting our R&B artists and their music soon, EVERYBODY is gonna be naked!
And we are not complaining one bit!

Last week, Trey Songz had his fans all hot and bothered after he posted a pic of him shirtless rocking his new Calvin Klein boxers, and now Mario has jumped on the boxer-brief selfie bandwagon.
In some sort of unofficial R&B boxer face-off, Mario posted a pic of himself in his undies over the weekend with the caption:
Ladies only | I had a dream that I would play in the next spartan movie so I woke up like this | God.

Mario laid a thirst trap, and the women came a running!

Kanye West Yeezus Tour Ticket Prices Slashed Due To Poor Sales
The second half of Kanye West's Yeezus tour wasn't as popular as he surely hoped. Due to poor sales, the prices of tickets to recent NYC area shows were slashed with some even given away for free.99.
Reports Page Six:
Ticket sales for the second half of Kanye West's “Yeezus” tour were so dismal, prices were slashed and freebies were given out at the last minute for shows in New Jersey and New York.
We're told several brokers were offering massively discounted tickets — and even free ones — for shows at the Prudential Center last week and for Sunday's Nassau Coliseum gig, after only half of tickets for the Prudential Center show were sold, while just a third of the tickets were sold for Sunday's Nassau show.
This shouldn't be too much of a shock since Yeezy already performed four times in NYC during the first half of the tour, which also had low ticket tales in certain cities, too.
Nevertheless, the nine additional shows managed to include their share of new Kanye West rants.

Spotted: Kerry Washington Hits The Set Of “Scandal”
Kerry Washington was spotted on the Pasadena set of Scandal on Monday. With her hair pinned in curls, the 36-year-old actress kept it comfy in maternity denims, a black top and UGGs, as she prepped for her role as D.C. fixer, Olivia Pope.

When news of Kerry’s pregnancy first began to circulate, there was the question of whether it would be written into the show. At the time, an insider stated that it was unlikely Olivia Pope would get pregnant, as “It would slow Olivia and the show down.” It was said that the most likely scenario is that Kerry’s pregnancy will be hidden and the production schedule will be slightly altered if needed.
She made her way to a trailer for finishing touches to hair, makeup, and wardrobe - and later appeared looking fab in a black and white ensemble.
Kerry took home the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series award for the ABC smash hit drama, at the 45th Annual NAACP Images Awards

Low-key, but elegant. Actress Kerry Washington spent her weekend at her intimate baby shower. On Sunday, February 23rd) Shonda Rhimes hosted a baby shower for the Scandal actress, at her Hancock Park home. Attendees included Tracee Elliss Ross, Jane Fonda, Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield, Diane Carroll and close family and friends of Kerry.
Photographers caught guests arriving at the ladies-only shower at 11 a.m. As expected, the shower was private, with no media allowed. Guests were greeted by valets and security guards with a guest list. Kerry was dressed comfy, but casually wearing a denim buttoned-up dress and gold heels. Very limited photos have been shared from the shower, outside of Jane Fonda.
Last June, Kerry and her husband Nnamdi Asomugh quietly married in Idaho. Earlier this year, after much speculation Kerry confirmed her pregnancy at the Golden Globes

OOOOPS: Fabolous Tries To Be Sneaky On Instagram Telling Model To "Hit Me"
Lately, rapper Fabolous and long time girlfriend, former "Love & Hip Hop" star Emily B have been displaying their love publicly by popping up in pictures together left and right. But that hasn’t stopped Fab from hitting up model chicks on Instagram. Check out Fab’s pimp game
Fabolous and Emily B just celebrated Fab’s 36th birthday back in November with a “Great Gatsby” themed party at Jazz Room at The General in New York City. The couple also celebrated Em's birthday earlier this month at PYNK Magazine's NYFW dinner.

But NOW, Fab is using his free time to brush up on his pimp game. The rapper was caught commenting under model (we’re using that term loosely), Alyssa Sorto’s Instagram photo telling her to “hit me” after she tagged his Instagram handle under her picture.  And after she called him "Smooth".
Really Fab? SMH...
Emily B. hasn’t said anything about Fab hitting up this chick and neither has he. We wonder if she even knows he’s doing this. Well, she does now. What do you think Fab was telling Alyssa to hit him up for?

Questions that need answers...
By the way, we perused her pics and noticed she's a true selfie-lover. But by time of publication, she changed her IG account to private.  Looks like someone possibly re-thought some things...

Ohhh children, they do the darndest things. Obviously it’s not the kid’s fault, if you let them do whatever they want they’ll run a muck. I’m just curious which haircut you parents out there would allow your kid to rock?
