Keyshia Cole, Neffe, and Frankie Reunited?

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, February 25, 2011 at 3:56 pm.

If you watched BET’s Frankie and Neffe, you saw firsthand that Keyshia Cole wasn’t always on great terms with her mother and sister. Off-screen, the situation between the family members got even crazier, with Cole’s other sister, Elite, being thrown into the mix. Neffe and Elite told the press that Cole was “turning her back” on the family. The singer, who was pregnant at the time, released a statement to her fans and said she cut communication with her birth mother and sisters because she “needed serenity and peace to move forward.” Now Keyshia seems to have had a change of heart.

On Jan. 20 she Tweeted:

@keyshiacole: I will be going to atl for a few days so I’m gonna let neffe and elite meet Dj for the first time if they r there. And my mom spend time.

@keyshiacole: I’m learning Wht [sic] forgiveness really means.”

We’re not sure if the reunion has gone down, or if it ever will, but we’re rooting for the family and hope they are able to convene drama-free. There’s nothing like healing old wounds.

Keyshia Cole Gives Her Manager the Boot

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm.

Keyshia Cole, BET’s Stephen Hill and Manny Halley

In the midst of lackluster sales for her latest album Calling All Hearts, Keyshia Cole has given her long time manager Manny Halley his walking papers. The singer announced his departure on her Twitter page:

You might remember Manny from his appearances on Keyshia’s BET reality TV show The Way It Is. I wonder if she’s putting some of the blame on him for her disappointing album sales? Keyshia’s previous three albums all went platinum, but her current fourth studio album entered entered the Billboard 200 chart at number nine in late December with 181,300 sold as of January 9. The first single off the album, “I Ain’t Thru” featuring Nicki Minaj reportedly caused a riff between Keyshia’s management and her label, Interscope Records. The singer ultimately admitted the decision to release the song was a mistake.

Do you think a change in management will help Keyshia Cole get more shine?

Keyshia Cole Talks Wedding, Frankie With Wendy

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 12:00 am.

Yesterday, Keyshia Cole stopped by The Wendy Williams Show and after her performance she discussed her marriage plans with fiancé, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Keyshia told Wendy Williams that the two have discussed plans for a February wedding, saying she would like a “giant” ceremony to possibly take place in Bora Bora.

Keyshia was then asked about her mother Frankie, who is currently undergoing treatment for drug addiction on Celebrity Rehab.

On whether or not Frankie is doing better, Keyshia explained to Wendy:

“I’m just hoping for the best. I can’t say if she’s doing good or bad, because I really don’t know. It’s so hard to tell with all the ‘I’m doing great! I’m doing great!’ And then you see her and it’s like no. I’m just praying, because I’d like for her to be a part of my child’s life.”

Rumor: Keyshia Cole Weds

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 12:00 am.

It seems a “music industry insider” (re: somebody’s messy cousin with a Hotmail account) has tipped off Media Take Out about an alleged secret wedding between Keyshia Cole and NBA player, Daniel Gibson that took place months ago.

If you’ve been wondering for an ANNOUNCEMENT about the Keyshia Cole-Danile Gibson wedding . . . you ain’t gonna hear it.

That’s because just received word from a FAIRLY reliable source that they’re ALREADY MARRIED. According to our MUSIC INDUSTRY INSIDER, the two had a private ceremony in Malibu, CA a few weeks ago.

And there appears to be confirmation of this.On Daniel’s PERSONAL website, he refers to Keyshia as his WIFE . . not his fiance, or GF, or even wifey . . . he says WIFE!!! (See below)

Well congrats to Keyshia and Daniel. But you know WE AIN’T NEVER GONNA FORGIVE YOU for not inviting us girl . . .

Unless Frankie is shouting about it from the mountaintop (or near an open mic in a hot sweaty club) then I need further proof – like a marriage license.

Neffe, Elite Respond To Keyshia Cole

Published by Runteldat on Monday, March 15, 2010 at 12:00 am.


While they won’t call it a feud, obviously Neffe and Elite feel a certain kind of way about their sister, Keyshia Cole, publicly stating that she’s no longer keeping contact with her family.

The two sisters appeared on the Ryan Cameron show in Atlanta to finally reveal their thoughts about the widely reported rift between them and Keyshia.

On the statement:

Neffe: You could never cut your blood loose no matter what you are doing on this earth. It runs through our veins. I’m gonna keep it 100. My sister decided to live a different life. It’s not because “oh we ghetto, we belligerent and loud”. We are all cut from the same cloth. [We all came from Frankie] If you see us, we out there, it’s just that Keyshia keeps hers from behind closed doors.

Elite: When I read it I was shocked. It was hurtful too. I had just come off of tour with Keyshia. We had 3 or 4 tours, I worked for my sister, I was her assistant for 8 months so I worked. I was shocked [by the statement]. Last time we spoke to her we didn’t think it was going to be a public permanent thing. When we last spoke to my sister, we had a family dinner to discuss some family matters and she was a little upset about the whole Frankie and Neffe Show.

Neffe: She is upset about it. She did not embrace the fact that “The Way It Is” was done and they had picked up “Frankie and Neffe”. We didn’t ask for that. We didn’t go to her and said “Sister Sister please can you give us a show. Can you give us a shot. Can we be stars”. We never asked Keyshia to do anything for us. She brought us down here to make our lives better but it didn’t get better, it got worse.”

On how life actually got worse once the two moved from California to Atlanta, Neffe said:

“For the record, I love my sister but you have to understand this is real life this is not a game. She’s a beautiful person. The “Way It Is” didn’t cut us no checks. We didn’t start seeing no money until the Frankie or Neffe show.”

She also reiterated that once she moved to Atlanta she was working two jobs – including one at AMC Theaters in addition to being a CNA. She also added that she’s certified to drive a bus. Not really the focal point of the post, but a nice tidbit to add.

Elite Twitters Wrong Info on Keyshia Cole

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 12:00 am.


If you haven’t figured out why Keyshia Cole doesn’t want to be bothered with some of her relatives anymore by now, try again with the recent antics of her sister, Elite.

On top of throwing out random tweets suggesting Keyshia hasn’t been the most loyal sister, now she’s pretending she has info on what Keyshia’s doing right now. Like, say, giving birth.

Yesterday Elite congratulated Keyshia on the birth of her child, tweeting:


Only one problem: Keyshia didn’t have her kid yet as proven by Monica, someone who actually still keeps in regular contact with the singer.

But Elite knew this all along, which is why she then tweeted:



Oh, so you do this for kicks. Isn’t that…special?

Yes, we got to do better – namely by finding something better to do than act like we keep in contact with people who don’t fool with us anymore.

Keyshia Cole’s Sister Responds

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at 12:00 am.


That other sister of Keyshia Cole, Elite Noel, reached out to ATL-based blogger, Freddy O, to release a statement in response to Keyshia Cole’s declaration that she’s not really fooling with the kinfolk like that anymore.

Care to read it, here it go:

To: All Those Who Are On The Outside Looking In,

Now I cant speak for others I can only speak for myself. I have done Absolutely nothing wrong! I was asked a question by Fans and I Responded with a Truthful and Honest answer! It is K.C’s choice not speak and have no communication with me for her own Personal Issues! I Believe that My Son and My Sister Neffe’s Children should not be Involved.I have supported My Sister Keyshia in her Career,became her Personal Assistant at one point,love her genuinely,and even Supported her decision on dating Mr.Gibson! Ive Earned and Worked for everything i have received in the last 4years. I Pray someday we will all realize that we are Family and must stick together! Hopefully Keyshia will allow her Biological Family be apart of her New Family, I would Hate to miss out on the joy of her New Addition(Baby Boy Or Girl) After all we’ve been through,were all human,no one is perfect,no family is exempt! Indeed My Mother Frankie needs Help and I Intend to do everything I can, but i will never Disown nor give up on her just because of the Judgement of people cold/cruel Hearts. She gave me Life and I Respect her for that.

I Trust, Believe and have Faith in GOD which is why I’m blessed(Appreciative and Grateful) Through all the Challenges that comes my way their is a Lesson Learned, I’m taking notes and ready to take these Challenges Head On. I have not used anyone!!!!!!! Held my own even before the Lights, Camera, Action! My Mother has done things that any parent would for her children but she does not take care of me under any circumstance(nor anyone else for that matter) My son is well taken care of by me and his father as well. No one owes me anything! I GRIND daily and will continue to do so while still have a Loving,Supportive Adoptive Family By My Side who has been there since birth. When you have PEACE and HAPPINESS within yourself then their is nothing no one can do or say to take that away……No Love Lost……Live to Love Life ELITE NOEL

Clearly Keyshia cut the funds for real because Elite didn’t let a real publicist or at least a homegirl who was good in English III in high school look this over for her.

No matter, though, ya’ll get the gist of what she’s saying – she thinks Keyshia could’ve still cut for the family.

I’ll let you all weigh in on which option you would choose.

Keyshia Cole is Engaged! Check Out the Ring!

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 3:00 pm.


Congratulations are in order!

Reports are buzzing that Keyshia Cole’s boo Daniel “Boobie” Gibson put a 9-carat ring on it and  proposed to her in Cleveland on New Year’s Eve!

The duo has yet to confirm the news, but according to Daniel commissioned Jason of Beverly Hills to custom design a brilliant round cut ring. The jeweler sent the site an exclusive image of the ring Daniel chose (pictured above; although notes that’s not Keyshia’s hand). Bling!

This news comes after the confirmation that the couple is expecting a baby; Keyshia is reportedly due in March.

Best of luck to this adorable couple as they build a family together!

Um, Will and Jada’s Young Daughter is Half Bald!

Published by Dior Noir on Monday, December 14, 2009 at 3:00 pm.

Norway Nobel Peace Concert

God help the children! Rihanna, Cassie, Keyshia Cole, Kelis, etc’s half-bald hair do has trickled down to little ones!

Last Thursday, December 11, 2009, little Willow Smith, 9, accompanied her parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and brother Jaden Smith, 11, to the Noble Peace Prize Ceremony in Norway, honoring President Obama.

The youngest Smith took to the stage with her family to sing at the concert that followed, and she looked like she was following in the footsteps of some of today’s pop singers with half her head shaved with the rest in a short comb-over. Now,  I know Jada can be a eccentric (she’s rocked some interesting hair-dos herself while leading her rock group Wicked Wisdom and it looks like she let Jaden  jack his hairstyle from Erykah Badu!) but I’m not sure that I’m feeling this for a child!

See more pictures below, what do you think?

Keyshia Cole Is Definitely Pregnant

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 12:00 am.

I guess after video we no longer have to speculate as to whether or not Keyshia Cole is indeed knocked up.

Here the very much pregnant singer is with her boyfriend, Daniel Gibson, handing out turkeys and groceries last week.

And according to Sister 2 Sister, Keyshia is due in March. She reportedly will have a boy, but she has yet to confirm the sex of her child (or her actual pregnancy, for that matter).

Still S2S reports:

She’s also been spotted several places sporting a prominent baby bump. Most recently she was seen courtside at a Cleveland Cavaliers game cheering on her man, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson.

Although, the couple is having a baby together, they’re not planning to jump the broom just yet. Put simply: Daniel hasn’t put a ring on it yet. That isn’t the only new addition to Keyshia’s family, though. We found out that Frankie has located another of her long-lost children, a 17-year-old daughter, who is also expecting.

So Keyshia is about to be both a new mommy and auntie. Those Frankie children sure are fertile, aren’t they?

Congrats to Keyshia and Daniel. Hopefully homie puts a ring on it soon.
