Candids: Diana Ross & Eve

Candids: Diana Ross & Eve

High quality pictures are evil. For instance. Diana Ross sung for the naming of the Billie Jean King USTA stadium yesterday. I’m sure she was her usual dramatic cunt self, but I love it. I’m just scared of her.

Eve went all Hollywood on us and never came back. Oh well, at least she isn’t stealing belts and taking trips to jail. She attended Paris Hilton’s album release party this past week out in Las Vegas. I hope she has a good bodyguard just in case her ex-boyfriend decides he wants to roll up.


Karrine Is Back To Her Old Tricks Again

Karrine Is Back To Her Old Tricks Again

I guess a hoe will just be a hoe. According to Superhead, Bobby is her “dearest friend” and she is not using him to gain her own reality television show. In fact, she’s already turned four down: So You Think You Can Suck Dick?, Dancing With Hoes, Double Penetration On Ice, and Celebrity Duets With Pornstars.

Superhead Whitney Houston appears to have rid herself of hubby Bobby Brown. Whether he gets back into the house may depend on hip-hop temptress Karrine Steffans.
Houston’s friends have long blamed Brown for her woefully heavy eyelids. So they’re praying she has the strength to change the locks. . .

Lately, she’s been seen around L.A. with him. So what’s up with them? “It’s a really tricky situation,” she told us this week, as she test-drove a Mercedes SLK 280. “He is my dearest friend. But I’m not saying it’s romantic. We won’t know what it is till we’re ready.

“There’s a wife and children involved,” the single mom went on. “I don’t want to wreck any marriages. But if a marriage is already wrecked, that’s not my fault.” So she and Bobby have been intimate? “It’s none of your business,” she scolded. “I’m still celibate. And if you believe that, I’ll tell you another one.”

“Look,” she said, shifting the Benz into a higher gear, “there are way bigger things in the works than a romance. I’m a businesswoman. Bobby and I are working together on some things.”

Somebody told online gossip Janet Charleton that Karrine is “using Bobby because she wants her own reality show.””Please,” she said. “You think I need Bobby Brown to get a reality show? I’ve turned down four reality shows.” (continue)

Fresh Flicks: ’06 Magic Expo

Solange and Mama Tina took a break from circling around Miss Jones’s block and went out to Las Vegas for the Magic Expo. Solange looks nice with darker hair. Buffie . . . I don’t even know. Big Booty Judy, ya’ll. Spanky looks like he just got finished stealing somebody’s lawn chairs to pay for that shirt. Not a good look at all.

Fresh Flicks : BMI Awards

Mariah Carey took home two awards last night for her hit song “We Belong Together” and Songwriter of the Year, along with Miami-based producers Bigg D and Jim Jonsin. Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio “L.A.” Reid were named BMI Icons for their influence of Chinese slippers and lip gloss on today’s metrosexual rappers. Just making sure you were paying attention. But the two were recognized for their “enduring influence on generations of music makers.”

Kanye West earned producer of the year and Jazze Pha’s “1, 2 Step” won the topped spot for BMI Urban Ringtone Award. Damn, they give away awards for that shit now? Click here to see to find out who else won awards.

Jill Marie Jones Wraps Production On New Film

Although Jill Marie Jones won’t be returning to the small screen as Toni Childs this Fall you haven’t heard the last from her yet. She just wrapped a movie that should be released next year.

From a girlfriend to a killer? Jill Marie Jones wraps production on her feature film debut Redrum, an offbeat comedy produced by Griot Filmworks.

Jones, best known for her role as the self-indulgent Toni Childs on the UPN hit (now CW) Girlfriends, plays timid wife Tanya Diggs, who enters into a killing spree with her husband, played by the director of the film, Kenny Young. As one tries to stop with the murders, the other moves swiftly forward, putting their love to the test.

Joe Torry, Snoop Dogg and Bishop Magic Don Juan also make appearances in the film.

“Kenny has been amazing,” Jones said exclusively to vibe.com about her first film experience. “It’s just so awesome when you work with a director who’s also an actor. He understands what you’re (as an actor) trying to accomplish. (continue)

Uh oh, Snoop and Don Juan? I guess you have to start off some where.
