Morning Foolishness


Mr. West says we should now address him as "Martin Louis The King, Jr."
"I know I've been called the Louis Vuitton Don, I know, I've been called a lot of names, uh mostly The Don, the Louis Vuitton Don -- due to what happened -- when the red shoes hit the runway, I was forced to change my name, to, Martin Louis The King, Jr. Address me as such. And until then, I will be in the building, swagger on a hundred thousand trillion." "Overwhelming -- I've wanted to be a fashion designer my entire life," West said to the Los Angeles Times after seeing his kicks on the runway. "And to see my stuff in the Vuitton show was something else. It was a dream come true. And the way those guys were styled -- they were dressed better than me!"
Sigh. Congrats to him for actually getting money from Louis Vuitton while spreading their name everywhere. Unlike most of these rappers...
There have been new developments in the murder case of NY Knick Eddie Curry's ex-girlfriend 24 year old Nova Henry and her 9 month old daughter Ava. The man, who once had a romantic relationship with Henry and served as a lawyer for her, was taken into custody Sunday in Michigan City, Ind. Police believe a domestic dispute is the cause of the murders. Eddie says he is not the father Ava, but is the father of Nova's 3 year old son who was found at the scene unharmed. Many people are speculating that Eddie is the father of Ava though and the lawyer suspect has been stalking and threatening Nova for some time now likely because of that fact. She had a few protection orders out against said lawyer. Such a sad story and foolish actions. More ish when you read the rest...

Celebs Speak Out: Jill Sott, First Lady Michelle O. & Michael Jai White

Jill Scott says she was surprised when she found out she as pregnant. Because she was actually told she couldn't conceive. She had given up hope of becoming a mother. Check out Essence.com for the full interview about her and baby to come.
Jill and her preggers belly
By the way, she's remaining mum about her new baby boy's name--she wants him or her to be the first to hear it. First Lady Michelle Obama is not playing around when it comes to her girls.  She's reportedly upset with the Beanie Baby company for making these "Sweet Sasha" and "Marvelous Malia" dolls.  Through her spokesperson, she released a statement calling them "inappropriate".  Ty (the company who makes Beanie Babies) says these dolls have nothing to do with the First Daughters and people are misunderstanding them to be dolls modeled after Sasha and Malia Obama.   Even thoughthe spokeswoman for the company originally told Crain.com that the dolls were designed with he Obama girls in mind.  Now she's retracting it.  Um, how stupid do these people think we are?  The dolls hit shelves right before Prez Obama's Inauguration this month. By the way, the Obamas are the cover of this week's People mag. Pics of Michael Jai White, his new baby girl, and his new wife when you read the rest...

Afternoon Tidbits: T.I. & Tiny, Michelle Obama, Lil Wayne, Andre 3000 & More

T.I. and Tiny are seemingly on Cloud 9 these days: He had her on his arm for every event during Inauguration. And even told everyone at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball--during his award acceptance speech--that Tameka is the love of his life. I thought I saw a tear. I guess the picture of an impending jail cell will make you man up to your true feelings real quick. And yes, I'm holding off on believing those pregnancy rumors about these two---for now. Michelle Obama's hairstylist Johnny Wright has reportedly landed a development deal to star in a hairy reality show. Here's the scoop:
Former Chicagoan Johnny Wright has styled the first lady's coif for the Democratic National Convention, her upcoming appearance on the cover of Vogue magazine and other occasions. He has signed a deal with 44 Blue, which produces such reality shows as Style Network's "Split Ends" and A&E's "L.A. Gang Unit."

Wright has also been Oprah's hairstylist. By the way, we hear Michelle O. just has sent out invites to very special VIP ladies around the U.S. to come to her brunch where she will be discussing her initiatives as First Lady. Nice. Interesting... Congrats to Andre 3000 on being named one of GQ's Best New Designers In America with his new Benjamin Bixby line:
The philosophy: “During OutKast’s Stankonia period, I looked like I was from Mars. The music was otherworldly, and my character reflected that. I wanted to put that spirit into classic clothes, but ones that people could actually wear.” The look: “I think the cut of Benjamin Bixby comes from comic-book characters, which I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. In comic books, the waist is always pinched, but the legs are full-cut, kind of like the Cracker Jack man.” The influence: “In high school, in Atlanta, when Grand Puba told us to wear Girbaud jeans, I wore Girbaud jeans. Then you had this prep movement happening: Ralph Lauren, Eddie Bauer, Bass, Sebago, and Timberland. So imagine me walking through [local housing project] Bowen Homes in the morning to catch the bus, but I’m dressed like a prep. As you get older, you go back to those things.”

Nice. More ish when you read the rest...

Deshawn Snow Speaks Out About Getting the Axe+Tameka Foster Is NOT The Next ATL Housewife+T.I.'s New Show+Obama Hennessy?

So Deshawn didn't know she was getting the axe from Bravo and won't be appearing on Season 2 of "Real Housewives of Atlanta".  She gave Essence an interview saying she she wasn't asked back because she "was too human for the circus show". In other words, she didn't fit the crazy gold digger loud mouth black woman stereotype Bravo wants to pump up even more for next season.  SMDH.  Here's a snippet of the interview:
ESSENCE.COM: We hear that you are no longer returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Is that true? DESHAWN SHOW: Yes, one of the producers called me yesterday and said that they wouldn't take my option. ESSENCE.COM: What reason did they give for not inviting you back for the second season? SNOW: [One of the producers] called and said that I was "too human for a circus show" and that because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn't think that I would fit in. He gave me an example, saying that during the reunion when I found out what a few of the other ladies said about me, they were expecting me to say more, but I'm not the type to go "television" and start acting crazy because somebody's talking about me. I'm fine with the decision. It wasn't my decision. They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity. ESSENCE.COM: So were you at all shocked by the decision? SNOW: I didn't see it coming. I was shocked because I just talked to them in December about the new season. It's not like they came to me and gave me an option by saying, "We're going to take a new direction and we want to know if you could be more like this." I was a little hurt, but I just look at it like I am what I am. [My personality] didn't seem to be a problem before, but I suppose the show took a different direction and they no longer see me as the right fit. If you look at all the other housewives, they are all different. I believe God moves people out of your way. It's about God having his hand upon you and doing things for you. I'm not judging my situation. I look at the show as just a shutter-glimpse of what God has in store for me. I enjoyed being on the show and hanging with the girls. At the end of the day, I was the same person throughout the show. I never changed. I was authentic and true to myself and I can't control what other people do.

She says she's still in school and writing teen/children's books.  Tameka Foster has also spoken to Essence about the rumor that she'll be on Season 2.  She says it's definitely not true.  I'm not sure if I'm happy or mad about that. More ish when you read the rest...
