Beef with Bloggersphere
TV personality and former Xscape singer Kandi Burruss has had it with bloggers talking mess about her fiancée Ashley “AJ” Jewel and her upcoming involvement on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, among other things. So much so that she told Essence her upcoming album (which features a song with her former group mate Tiny) will be called B.L.O.G. (B–ches Love Online Gossip).
“I came up with the concept based on things that were going that were relevant to what’s going on in my life now including the show and what things have been written about me and my fiancée by bloggers,” she said. “The whole album isn’t about the show but there are definitely songs inspired from the show like ‘Fly Above,’ and ‘It Must Be Good.’”
I don’t understand folks who whine and complain about what people have to say when they willingly thrust themselves into public view! Kandi also told Essence:
“I was supposed to be on the ‘Tiny & Toya’ show along with our friend Joy, Lyfe Jennings’s ex-fiancée,” and explained that it fell through. “I was disappointed because I was looking forward to getting into reality television, but the next week I was approached to join the cast of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ so it all worked out.”
So let me get this straight, you try multiple times to get down with the reality TV circuit that’s going to blast the details of your life but get mad when people talk about the details of your life? Not that anyone deserves to be trash talked but if you can’t stand the heat… Plus what would reality personalities and er, washed up celebrities from yesteryear really be without the blogs and gossips reporting on them and thus making them even remotely relevant in the celebrity world? I’mjustsayin.
Baby Baby Baby Baby…
Tisha Cambpell Martin is in the preggers club: she’s expecting her second child with actor Duane Martin (they already have a son, 8 year-old Xen). The Martins recently had a baby soiree in LA and guest list included fellow mommies-to be actress Jennifer Freeman and Lauren London. I wonder if we’ll see celebrity play dates in the coming months; it seems like so many stars are ready to pop or welcoming new bundles of joy (shout out to two-day old Knight Jones!).
What’s in a Name?
Paris Hilton recently revealed that Michael Jackson asked her mother for permission to use her name for his only daughter Paris Jackson. “My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13,” Hilton told Extra. “So I grew up knowing Michael very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me. So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”
Cute, I guess? Let’s just hope the younger Paris doesn’t follow in the elder’s wild footsteps.
