Racy Net Photos Won’t Disqualify Antonella Barba

Racy Net Photos Won’t Disqualify Antonella Barba

After several days of playing coy about the fate of Antonella Barba, American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has reportedly announced that despite the emergence of numerous provocative photos, the sixth season semifinalist will not be disqualified from the smash-hit Fox reality competition.

It cost Frenchie Davis, a finalist in 2003, her spot as she was dumped after it was determined she posed nude for a porn site. Why not Antonella?

Charlie McCollum of the Mercury news writes, “There is a difference, though. The Barba photos (the ones that are definitely of her) were private ones, not from a photo shoot for a porn site. Barba may be guilty of bad judgment or outright stupidity but that doesn’t carry quite the same weight as Davis taking money to pose and then not telling the “Idol” producers about it.” (source)

I’m urging members of Team Chunk to march in protest about this. Right after we have an emergency meeting at Steak N’ Shake, then we will spring into action. All for one and one for all!

Dom Perignon Celebration For Forest Whitaker

Dom Perignon Celebration For Forest Whitaker

Dom Perignon recognized Forest Whitaker at a party in Hollywood last night. Oprah, Djimon Hounsou, Chris Tucker, Mary J. Blige (and that damn Kendu) and Quincy Jones were some of the stars who came out to support Forest. On the other side of town Mad Dog 20/20 honored Bookem Woodbine for his many contributions to Black cinema.

It could happen, hell.






And?

And?

Pictures of Jay-Z’s (seen here with Solange’s son Big Baby D) alleged love child and baby mama have hit the internet, again. And to quote the immortal words of Antoine Merriweather, well touch me in the morning and then walk away.

You all are intelligent people so you can form your own opinions about that situation.

I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. My cousin Pooh has more illegitimate kids than Shawn Kemp and she’s not making any headlines. You can say what you want but those little tykes make great weed carriers for out of state trips.

But I digress.

Drop me a line when the hip hop version of I’s Da Pappy on blu ray disc is available for review. Have a cherry coke and a smile until then.

Edit: Duh, I realize that is NOT the child in question. The picture is just a visual, don’t take things to literal. Followin the links to the pot of gold, okay?

Candids: Kelis & Nas

Candids: Kelis & Nas


Kelis and Nas tried to go unnoticed while dining at the popular Toast Cafe along 3rd street in West Hollywood. It’s kind of hard to be inconegro with a pink mohawk. There’s nothing worst than trying to stuff your face while someone snaps pictures of you.

Michelle Williams = Shug Avery

Michelle Williams = Shug Avery

Paging Jesus, paging Jesus. You’re wanted on the main line STAT!

Michelle Williams of the R&B group Destiny’s Child is joining the Chicago production of “The Color Purple,” the producers announced Tuesday.

Williams will play the role of Shug Avery, a sexy blues singer.

The stage version of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel will open in Chicago on April 17. It’s still playing on Broadway.

Several of the stars of the New York production — including Jeannette Bayardelle, who plays the lead character of Celie, and Felicia P. Fields, who received a Tony nomination for her portrayal of the feisty Sofia — are joining the tour in Chicago.

Producer Scott Sanders said casting Williams as Shug Avery seemed like a natural choice because Shug is the one character in the musical who has “seen the world.” (source)

First the stock market takes a plunge now this. Does this mean there is going to be some girl on girl action with Fantasia? Heavens to Betsy, there won’t be any lesbians left in the audience when the show is complete.

Can’t Forget About You: George Huff

Can’t Forget About You: George Huff


With all the hype surrounding Jennifer Hudson recently my mind couldn’t help but wonder what George Huff has been up to. Every week I would make a mad dash to my television to watch his tang-filled performances on the third season of ‘American Idol.’ From the gate I knew he wouldn’t walk away the winner but he will always be number one in my heart. *does Omarion’s ice box dance*

A quick Google search revealed that George toured the country last year promoting his gospel album Miracles. I think this kid should send his regards to Broadway. If Fantasia can do it damn it he can too. Besides, Tevin Campbell can’t play the role of Seaweed J. Stubbs in Hairspray forever. George would make an excellent understudy.

Mama Tina Is Not Amused This Morning

Mama Tina Is Not Amused This Morning

An employee of Wolfgang Puck Catering diagnosed with the hepatitis A virus may have exposed guests at several events, including Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue party, health officials said Tuesday. The list of possibly exposed guests include Beyonce Knowles, Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend Bar Rafaeli and other models featured in the magazine.

Although the risk of illness was “quite low” anyone who ate raw food at the magazine’s party was urged to recieve a preventive shot by Wednesday.

Wolfgang Puck is trying to destroy the blood of the lamb. I repeat, Wolfgang Puck is trying to destroy the blood of the lamb.

Mama Tina is cooking up a batch of her infamous dirty creole rice to send over to ol’ Wolfie. I hope he doesn’t choke on one of Michelle Williams’ diced up limbs. You’re going down, bitch! (source)

New York Gets Caught In A Lie During An Interview With Miss Jones

Things got heated between Hot 97’s Miss Jones and Tifanny Pollard aka New York during a recent phone interview when Jonsie caught New York in the middle of a bold face lie. They should’ve asked her what was up with Sister Patterson’s wig game. Audio via Hip & Pop.

The Devil In Prada Made Her Do It



Jennifer Hudson revealed on the Today Show this morning that she was not happy with her fashion choice for the 79th Acadamy Awards. This of course doesn’t mean anything to the millions of people out there who think they have an impecable sense of fashion and thought the jackets was a good look. Folks are going to start walking around looking like the long lost member of LaBelle.

“Jennifer was kind of sponsored by Talley and Vogue,” said one fashionista. “Andre insisted she wear that hideous Oscar de la Renta dress with the awful, awful gold python bolero.

“Jennifer really didn’t want to, and so [noted stylist] Jessica Paster got her a beautiful gold Roberto Cavalli custom-made. But when Andre found out, he went ballistic. Moments before she left for the show, there was a power struggle and Jennifer ended up putting his outfit on.” (source)

Eddie Murphy Is A Sore Loser

Eddie Murphy was so steamed after losing his Oscar race to Alan Arkin, that he stormed off – and out of the Kodak Theater altogether.

Several sources report that Murphy was a real sore loser after the Best Supporting Actor was awarded – in an admittedly huge upset – to Arkin. The funnyman was decidedly not smiling as he left his seat, and didn’t stick around to see co-star Jennifer Hudson win Best Supporting Actress, or watch the ladies of “Dreamgirls” sing their lungs out. (source)

You know Eddie immediately poured himself a drink and called Johnny as soon as he got in the limo. He should’ve just fell back and enjoyed the rest of the show instead of throwing a dramatic cunt fit. Save that bottle of raw emotion for the paternity hearing with Scary Spice, okay?
