“Dreamgirls” Sneak Peek

I know I have been hitting ya’ll over the head with “Dreamgirls” news but I can’t help myself. Tia sent over a truckload of pictures from the movie and I thought I would with the class. This movie has me interested for the wrong reasons now. I just want to go and look at the wigs!



Here’s a link to the new commercial that many of you saw during the BET Awards Tuesday night.

06.30.2006 Panache Report Blind Items

Blind Item #1: by Sin-Q

Few people know that a black actress is a former street prostitute who turned tricks for a living alongside an infamous black woman. The black actress has been labeled bizarre, irrational and unstable. She and the infamous woman worked a corner populated by well to do johns and creeps in Los Angeles. They had an physical altercation when the infamous woman found out the future actress slept with her favorite john, a married rapper (whom she didn’t like to share). Both women are extremely well known in the black community.

Blind Item #2: by Algiers
This black female singer is so full of herself, early on. A few weeks ago, she performed out of the country and proceeded to curse at the audience when they responded weakly to songs they were not familiar with. She said, “What’s wrong with all of you, I know you m*therf**kers ain’t too old to know what I’m singing.” Some people got up and left. This singer also likes to disrespect established black female singers, pretending like she forgets their names when she encounters them at industry events and parties. When other people talk about other female singers in her presence, she rolls her eyes and quickly changes the subject. She has no respect for her fans nor her peers.

He Makes Pee Wee Herman Look Like An Amatuer

This may be old news to some of you but it’s new to me! Caramel Hunny sent this in to me this morning and I had to share it with you.

On March 30, Minnesota Timberwolves center Eddie Griffin was drunk and masturbating when he crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban outside a store in Minneapolis, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the man whose Suburban was hit in the crash.

The location where Griffin crashed is located a couple miles from the Target Center where Griffin had played with his team several hours earlier.

Abed Hassuneh, who is the brother of the victim, said Griffin told him, “That he was masturbating himself going down that street. That’s how the accident happened because he was not paying attention. He’s paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he’s shoveled somebody’s car on the top of the sidewalk . . . “

Several of the 911 callers that night said Griffin was drunk. One witness said Griffin told him he was watching pornography in a DVD player mounted on the dashboard of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he struck a Chevy Suburban parked on University Avenue Southeast. (continue)

In the video located on the site he says “I will buy you any car you want. . . not a Bentley. ” So the brother wasn’t too drunk, no?

Um, No?

Um, No?

Shemar Moore has been on my Nigga Please radar since he decided to host ‘Soul Train’. It’s bad enough I couldn’t ever bring myself to watch that lip synching festival in the first place, but him hosting sealed the deal. Now they have some other guy on there who looks like a door-to-door encyclopedia pusher.

And I’m not even going to speak on that travesty he called a hairstyle in “Diary of a Mad Black Woman”. Fuck, his hair being like that in the movie is enough reason to make a bitch mad by itself.

“Criminal Minds” Photocall


I don’t know exactly what look Shemar is going for in these pictures. He looks like a fabulostic pirate to me. Those boots are screaming put-my-straight-to-DVD-ass-in-the-next-Pirates-of-the-Carribean-movie. I bet he wants to go plunder some “booty” right now . . .

I Just Want It To Be Over

I Just Want It To Be Over

Last night I decided to skip Star’s chit chat with Larry King and laugh at Diddy try to train Dana Dane, Dannity Mayne, whatever and ‘Run’s House’. I’m so tired of hearing about her ass! Am I a bad person for not giving a damn? Because frankly, I don’t.

Here’s a great piece from the NY Post that pretty much sums everything up for me.

What else has she been lying about? Barbara Walters had to admit it – on national TV. Dame Barbara, the self-crowned queen bee of daytime television, is a big, fat, two-faced fibber. This may be a first for the boob tube. But an important principle was at stake. Namely – whose is bigger? Barbara Walters’ ego? Or Star Jones Reynolds’ mouth? . . .

Star Jones Reynolds committed the egregious sin of announcing Tuesday on the air – without Barbara’s permission! – that she was leaving the “View.” Later, she complained to “People” that she felt as if she’d been fired. Well, she was.
“We hoped . . . she would leave with dignity,” Barbara said yesterday. “But Star made another choice.” Barbara admitted she neglected to tell viewers that Star was on the outs – and her public defense of the formerly rotund Bridezilla was a sham. “It’s been uncomfortable to pretend that everything is the same,” she said. ” ‘The View’ made Star a star,” she added.
Not to be undone, Star took her shots on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show. “It’s a little shocking to me that Barbara feels betrayed,” she said. “If anyone should feel betrayed it should be me! Barbara didn’t have my back.”
Only one thing is crystal clear:
Star Jones Reynolds is excruciatingly annoying. And difficult. And insufferable. And she should go.
And Barbara should get the hell out with her. (Star Jones illustration via The Gallery of the Absurd)

06. 29. 06 Nippy Watch

Things have been a little slow on the Nippy frontier this week. Like many of you I wanted her to come out during the tribute to Chaka Kahn at the BET Awards Tuesday but of course she didn’t. So I guess we will have to settle for a little vintage Nippy.

This YouTube clip is of a 1986 Coke commercial featuring Nippy and a few other familiar faces. Dallas Penn thinks that Whitney’s current love of coke is all Coke’s fault.

The signs were all there 20 twenty years ago, but now it’s obvious that Coca-Cola is responsible for NIPPY’s drug addiction. C’mon people?!? The ‘COKE IS IT!’ slogan. Her move to Atlanta, GA, the corporate H.Q. for Coca-Cola.

While you are in the YouTube spirit, check out this clip. I guess I see what you guys were saying now. Thanks for the link Butta.

Will Diddy Be Heading To The Chapel Soon?

Will Diddy Be Heading To The Chapel Soon?

Diddy is finally going to make Kim an honest woman. Or at least that’s what the latest rounds of rumors say.

Word is that Diddy proposed to Kim recently and she accepted. If this is true I feel happy for the girl. It seems like they are married already because they’ve been together for a while. After seeing her and all of those damn kids at the BET Awards, I couldn’t do anything but shake my head.

But then again she might just be on her way to being his beard for life. Yeah I said it.

Guess The Parent!

Guess The Parent!

You ever look at a cute kid and then glance over at the parents and wonder how the hell did they create such a beautiful child? I do it every time I go to church. So who is the lucky sperm donor?

Lil’ Jon! Can you believe that? I’m going to need a paternity test administered right away because this kid is too cute to be the fruit of Jon’s loins. Nathan will hit the runway at a fashion show to bring awareness for HIV/AIDS in July. You can check out more information about the show at Sandra Rose. Thanks for the tip Marcus!

06.29.2006 Rumor Control

There seems to be some trouble in paradise between Kanye and Jamie. An unknown source told Media Take Out, Kanye’s arrogance finally got on Jamie Foxx’s last nerve.

After Jamie Foxx’s actions during last night’s BET Awards, people were left wondering whether there’s trouble between the Oscar winning actor and Kanye West. MediaTakeOut.com has uncovered that the two artists have been feuding for months.

The feud started earlier this year when, while the two were rehearsing their Grammy performance, West reportedly told the multi-platinum selling Foxx to “stand back and watch a real star perform.” The usually calm Foxx flew into a rage and stormed out of the rehearsal. Jamie was later overheard telling his publicist, “does this n***a know who I am? Did he see the Academy Awards?”

During last night’s BET Awards, the animosity between the two superstars was noticeable. When the pair won the award for Best Duet/Collaboration, Kanye West tried to ease the tension by profusely thanking Foxx for the collaboration.

But Jamie Foxx wasn’t ready to make peace. While West was giving his acceptance speech, Jamie Foxx stood behind him making faces and, at one point, held a portable fan behind Kanye’s head. When it was Foxx’s turn on the mic he simply shouted “Three-six mafia, I’ll see you baby.” Three-six Mafia won an Oscar earlier this year for the soundtrack to the movie Hustle and Flow.

MediaTakeOut.com managed to catch up with Jamie Foxx late last night at a Los Angeles hot spot. When asked why he held up a fan behind Kanye West, Jamie responded, “someone had to cool that n***a off.”

All of this must have happened while I was dosed off.

This Just In: According to Eurweb, Lil’ Kim will be leaving the big hous soon. Her mother Ruby and brother Christopher announced at the awards that she is scheduled to be released early next week, which is three months early. I guess we will have to wait to see how that one develops but I kinda miss Kimberly. An additional HAM is always welcomed to the feast.
