Miss me? I am currently on vacation with Baby Daniel in the middle of the French Rivera, so posting will be slow until after July 4th. On to the links!

Take That, Take That

My spiddy senses tell me that Kim Porter is fuming right now. Flicks of Claudia Jordan and Diddy have getting cozy have leaked to the net. A source tells Concrete Loop that “Diddy is feeling her” and “he wants to date her.” What does Maurice Green have to say about this?

Spice 1

Spice 1 [1]

Have you heard the fantastic news? The Spice Girls are getting back together. *slow . . . hand claps* Break out your platform Sketchers.

All five Spices joined together for Thursday’s unsurprising announcment at London’s O2 Arena. The reunion, rumored—and downplayed—for weeks, was assumed to be a fait accompli once Simon Fuller, the Svengali who first unleashed the group on an unsuspecting public more than a decade ago, announced the quintet would be holding a press conference to “discuss future plans” several days ago.

“We are girl power,” said Halliwell, 34. “It doesn’t matter how old you are, 5 or 65.”

QUESTION OF THE DAY: WHAT OTHER MUSIC GROUPS SHOULD REUNITE?
[1] I couldn’t help myself. It’s not often that I get to make references to West Coast rappers from the 90’s.

Real Life Norbit

Real Life Norbit

The phrase “if you like it, I love it” always creeps into my thoughts whenever I see Doug Christie being tugged around town on an invisible dog leash by wife Jackie.

I just couldn’t bring myself to watch their reality show on BET J. (Actually, my wack ass cable provider isn’t offering the channel in their premium service bundle. But let it be known that even if they were I still wouldn’t have tuned in.) Yeah, I peeped their appearance on The Tyra Show, still I choose not to drink the kool-aid they are serving. Black love is beautiful but this is down right scary to me.

The happily married couple is currently in the middle of embarking on a promotional tour for their memoir No Ordinary Love.

Hoe Sit Down

Last week Shar Jackson took two pregnancy tests at her manager’s office in Los Angeles — and both proved she’s not expecting. The test took only three minutes and she was all smiles after one of them read not pregnant on the digital screen.

What some people do to remain relevant.


Yac Is Where It’s At

Yac Is Where It’s At

CAPTION THIS // Keyshia Cole & Kevin Liles

Yung Joc, LeToya Luckett, Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole, LaMichael, T.I., Ray J and others downed glasses of yac at the Courvoisier hosted party to celebrate Atlantic Records 60th Anniversary.

By the end of the night I’m sure someone made the mistake of telling Lil’ Kim how bad she really looks. You know how folks act when they are “on that brown.”

My Two Dads

My Two Dads

I keed, I keed. Have a sense of humor about this medical marvel.

In a statement the singer and his fiancee Tameka Foster issued to The Associated Press on Wednesday (June 27), the couple said: “We are extremely excited at this point in our lives planning our wedding and the joy that comes with expecting our first child together. We hope people will be happy for us and respect our privacy during this happy period in our lives.” The baby, which is due in the fall, will be the fourth child for recently divorced stylist Foster.
