Chris Brown Talks Best Buddies+Reality Shows For Faith Evans, Toni Braxton, and Melyssa Ford

Chris Brown did a heartfelt blog  post on his website today.  He's talking about the program he's a part of giving to--The Best Buddies program.  Here's his words:

Sweet. News on Faith Evans', Toni Braxton's, and Melyssa Ford's reality shows when you read the rest...

We posted a while back that Toni Braxton is getting her own reality show called "Braxton Family Values."  And now, it's been picked up by Bravo and is set to air very soon.  Will you be watching?

Faith Evans is also copping herself a reality show. According to AllHipHop: The reality show It’s All About Faith will chronicle Evans’ return to the recording industry after a five-year hiatus, in addition to juggling a home life with her husband/manager Todd Russaw and their four children. She's also simultaneously releasing her 6th album via her own company--Prolific Music Group. Of course.

And even Melyssa Ford--video vixen turned actress--is getting her own reality show.  She said about it recently: “51 Minds bought the show, so did VH1. We shot the pilot, myself Elise Neal and Claudia Jordan. I just saw a cut of the first episode and I was blown away… it wasn’t even mastered and it looked amazing.” Riiiight.  They must be handing these things out like candy since anybody who shows up on a red carpet can get one. The Randomness: 1. More pics of A. Keys and Bey on the set of their "Put It In A Love Song" vid have been added here. 2. Melanie Fiona and Robin Thicke will be on Alicia Keys' 23-city Freedom tour kicking off March 3rd in Chicago.

And sorry for such a long

And sorry for such a long post, but I had to get that off of my chest. I wish I could download Chris' new mixtape that's coming out, but I can't :( I'll try and listen to it online though.

To all of the people saying

To all of the people saying that Chris is just doing this for publicity, Chris has done a lot of charity work even before he beat Rihanna. Like some people have said, he donated some of the proceeds of his tour to St. Jude's and he helped out with Oprah's foundation. He also hosted a charity celebrity basketball game on his 18th birthday for Hugs for Harlem, and to be honest, I've never heard of anyone hosting a charity on their birthday. I even found out that he's donated to many other smaller charity organizations. So to be honest, before you decide to judge or talk about someone (even if it is your opinion), find out the facts first. Honestly, he really does seem to be learning his lesson and I wish him the best. As for these reality tv shows, I'm tired of them. Too much drama. Even if I do like Toni Braxton, I won't be watching her show. And as for Alicia Keys new video with Beyonce, I hope that it turns out good, although that's the worst song on her album (just my opinion) and I don't think that she should have put it out as a single, but oh well. If her tour comes around my way, I'll see if I can get tickets for it. I love her music and I like Melanie Fiona too.

Lmao! Internet Gangsters

Lmao! Internet Gangsters strike again! 1st off don't assume to be aware of who I know personally or not. I rarely come on this site but when I saw there was an article on my cousin's WIFE I read it. YOU need to get a life and remember that if you spoke the way you type, you'd get your knocked the f@!k out on the reg. I read the comments & I was disturbed by how people who claim not to care about some famous folks enough to watch a reality show, are the same ones writing comments about them on blogs like this one. You sound stupid.

I'm sick of all the Chris

I'm sick of all the Chris Brown hatin!!!!!! Hell he should not have hit Rhihanna but I am sure she hit him first. Let it be people. They were young and I am sure he learned a lesson from that. He has a good heart and Rhi has forgiven him and so should you all! Geesh, he is a good kid leave him alone!
Sorry but I had to do it's picture

I've personally witnessed

I've personally witnessed Chris Brown's charitable work in 2006 waaaay before the "incident". Check it out here: www.mlkmemorial.org/dk No one will forget what happened (the media will make sure of that), but at some point we need to uplift one of the last true talents we have. The one thing that seems to amaze me is that since the incident all I see Rihanna doing is partying, talking about sex, and just being an overall media whore (and performing, interviews, videos, etc. Ha!). But it seems that Chris is making an effort to try to move past it all and learn from his mistakes, but we won't let him. Maybe he shouldn't have put out the album and kept a low-profile...but that probably wouldn't have helped either. He can't win for losing!

Reality shows are MUCH

Reality shows are MUCH cheaper to produce than scripted t.v. that's why there's sooo many shows on now. With these "celebs" gettin shows I guess they hoping that they already have a built-in fanbase so that means less money spent on promo. So they unfortunately ain't goin NOwhere!

doesnt really matter what

doesnt really matter what Chris did in the past, the past is history, tomorrow's a mystery, today is a gift that's why we call it the present. He's helping today, for whatever reason he's helping. Would you rather them not help at all? Who did you donate for besides haiti if so? He's growing up so he gotta start actin like it now.....aint no matter what he did back then now....move on an let your actions today speak for who you are today. U dont have to forgive him, God will if he sees it fit. As the Good Book says, he that is without sin, cast the first stone.

@ Melissa Lol so true. Why

@ Melissa Lol so true. Why else would they come to a post of someone they don't like. They just know he is doing good and they can't stand to see someone they don't like to move on so they sit here and hate. Its so petty. Thats why I co-sign 100% when you said some of these people need the LORD in their lives. They really don't have the Lord in their lives that much by the look of all this hating on this young man. Maybe they are miserable. Or just petty people but its not good to be either lol. You see how they all shut up when they know they are wrong though lol....people these days XD

To all the hateful bandwagon

To all the hateful bandwagon black folks: Are you also spewing this same hate at well- BEYOND-teen-years- repeat-offender Charlie Sheen right now?! Are you boycotting him, wishing bad things on him and making sure you attack him on all the blogs about his most recent incident? If not, why not? Because the media didn't put it in your head to do that? Hmmm, wonder why? GET YOUR MINDS RIGHT BANDWAGON BLACK FOLKS!
Me's picture

For those of you who are

For those of you who are criticizing CB for whatever, here's a scripture to live by: "And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye'; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." In other words judge not, so you won't be judged!!!!

As always the Rihanna stans

As always the Rihanna stans flock to Chris Brown post hoping to get a negative word in one way or another. Grammar problems? No. He may have spaced a few too many times, but that's about all. How can you refuse to see the good in people, yet want everyone to worship Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Michele, for you information, Chris donated 50 cents to every dollar of his profit from tours to St. Jude. Get your facts straight before you try to make some pissy argument in Rihanna's favor when in actuality this has nothing to do with her. Why do yall always have to incorporate Rihanna in everything? Beyonce post and now CB post? Shut up and go somewhere goodness. Keep your head up Chris. God chastices those he loves then pours out more favor blessings than you can receive.

@lol Why do you fucking

@lol Why do you fucking always post shit about Chris Brown just hating. And you never post anywhere else its just Chris Brown. Ya'll wasting time and energy hating on him not realizing this negative energy isn't returned by him anymore. He don't care about you haters get over it ya'll just want attention lol. I swear some of ya'll need God in your lives obviously you don't have enough of that or you won't be trying to tear down this young man that has already owned up to what he did. No doubt God aleady forgave him and Rihanna already said she forgave him so why is ya'll tripping? Ya'll act like you have a personal problem with Chris Brown or something damn. But seriously haters get some God in you or something maybe it will take all that hate out. Some of ya'll just so hateful toward this dude. You know hate isn't good for you. That energy can cause health problems lol.

@Michele Wow he's been

@Michele Wow he's been working with Best Buddies for a while he met the man in charge back in 08 and thats when it began. Lets see he helped out with Oprah's Africa school and alot of other shit. So the next time you wanna talk shit learn your fucking facts. And he ain't call wendy a man. What he fucking said was "I saw a man that reminded me of wendy lol" how the hell does that mean he said she is a man he could have meant the dude was silly like wendy or some shit. See ya'll over anaylze shit and sound dumb. You might not be a hater but you sure some like a dumbass with no life with no idea what the hell your are talking about. That is all. No need to reply back because everything you said was false so you can't be mad because you trying to diss Chris without any true facts. @Melissa Some of these people do need the LORD in their lives its sad the young man got his sentencing owned up to it and is helping with a charity he has been with b4 the Rihanna thing and they got bull to say about it. Are ya'll active with a serious charity? Doubt it. Then ya'll talking about grammar and some shit. Who the fuck cares ya'll can't spell either so shut the fuck up. He isn't a grammar professor or some shit get over it. But anyways. Good job CB keep up the good work. And take your baby steps back to the top it won't be easy but you are doing a good job so far :D And why everyone get a reality show? Why do they need it? Reality shows are getting dumber and dumber lol.

Didn't black people learn

Didn't black people learn enough already with the loss of Michael Jackson? The media made that man's life a living hell no matter how much good he did or how many people he helped. BANDWAGON BLACK FOLKS jumped in and helped the media tear him down. Instead of being proud as hell that we had such a talented and popular artist who was BLACK and loved all over the world! So what y'all want? You want to totally destroy Chris? You want none of the good he does to matter? You want to deny his talent and the fact that all races love him? You want to break him down to the point where HE CAN'T SLEEP? Then what? I swear, some black ppl never f*ckin' learn. No solidarity. No cohesiveness. That crab thing again. GET YOUR MINDS RIGHT BLACK PEOPLE!

Say a kindword? You mean like when you called Wendy Williams a man? All over twitter? For the world to see? Dumbass. I'm not giving props for anything. What charities did he do pre Rihanna incident?

I don't see anything wrong

I don't see anything wrong with what he wrote. What exactly are you looking for??? Big words that you can't pronounce, Chris is just keeping it real. Hell I'm in college, he did a lot better than some of the males in my class! They always misspelling sh*t and some don't even know what a sentence is, all the write is fragments...lol But they are not dump, in fact some are very intelligent, they just have a hard time expressing their words on paper. I'm not a pro myself in English but I know enough to get by. I see nothing wrong with his article.

What the hell are ya'll

What the hell are ya'll talking about? I wasn't even going to read Chris letter but then all ya'll started talking about his grammar mistakes. I seen 1 mistake; but the people talking shit can't even write right. Ya'll to busy worried about him and can't even correct your damn self! Grow up! Good job Chris. Also for ya'll talking about he's just doing this for publicity, Chris has been apart of best buddies for a couple of years now!
Jerrie's picture

He's a music artist, not a

He's a music artist, not a damn English professor! You people swear you are so perfect. He's not trying to turn in a research paper for a damn grade. The dude is doing something positive and all you idiots cans do is talk about his grammar. "Reality Check" no one is perfect put GOD. Chris is a very smart individual and kept a A&B average while in school. So you perfect people who live in your own perfect world, keep living, you think it's so easy to just talk down on others keep living your day will come. Chris keep your head up and keep doing your good deeds, forget the haters. GOD sees all and he will reward you in the end.

I love how Chris continues to focus on his charity work as well as focusing on his fans.He doesn't give you haters any energy but your sure as hell give him energy but what you give him is only coming back at you...... I think many of you haters that have issues with Chris do so because he isn't hiding nor is he hanging his head low and that is what you hate.

Chris will never please the s-i-c-k people that continue to judge him,but the great thing is they don't matter anyway when it comes to the promotion of his spirit.People that continue to judge Chris really are only tearing down their own spirit because Chris ain't studying you fools.
