The lovely actress Tichina Arnold turned 43 today . Arnold was one of my first TV crushes .
Her TV credits includes “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Martin”.
Tichina Arnold was born to a middle-class family in Queens, New York. Her mother was a sanitation department worker and her father was a police officer. She attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts.
Tichina’s love for performing began in her childhood, holding church congregations as a four-year-old. When she turned eight, her mother and uncle encouraged her to audition, and she won a part in her first play The Me Nobody Knows at the Billie Holiday Theater in Brooklyn. She continued to perform in the theater and at supper clubs, starring in such production’s as Hair, Romance and Hard Times. She then landed parts in TV movies such as The Brass Ring in 1983 and PBS’ House of Dies Drear the year after.
Then her big break came in 1986 when she got the role of a lifetime, as one of the background singers in the movie “Little Shop of Horrors.” This movie scared the hell out of me for years I could not go in to my backyard thinking, “I would be attacked by the plants.”
Happy Birthday Ms. Arnold….Â Arnold is engaged to Rico Hines
T.I. is not short on material for his upcoming album. The rapper recently told DJ Sense of Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 that he has 125 songs in the can for “Trouble Man,” the title of his eighth studio album. T.I. says he’s just sitting on the material right now. “Trouble Man” is due to be released on September 4th. That’s the day after the second season premiere of his VH1 reality series “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.”Â Do you remember 3 years ago when I attended T.I.unforgettable performance at club Crucial in Atlanta. After doing his Farewell Tour.
Â The club was jammed packed full of people that came to show their love. T.I. talked to the crowd to let everyone know â€œno matter how much people might hate on him he will always keep his head up cause heâ€™s the King B-Tchâ€ â€¦ And he wouldnâ€™t say it if he didnâ€™t mean itâ€. Next thing I know Tip was talking about how people need to forgive and let things go donâ€™t hold on to anything, and then Shawty Lo walked out on to the stage and extended his hand to the rapper. Both men embraced and shook hands as the audience was like what the hellâ€¦ LOL
Chris Brown fills like he’s been hit by a car these past few weeks, and now more drama. There is even more fallout from the New York City nightclub brawl reportedly linked to members of Drake and Chris Brown‘s camps.
The “New York Daily News” says the New York State Liquor Authority has yanked W.i.P.’s liquor license and written up the club for several violations.
The agency said in a press release that it would not tolerate “violent bars that break the law.”
Including the June 14th disturbance that resulted in several injuries at W.i.P., the State Liquor Authority cites ten separate assaults and altercations at both W.i.P. and Greenhouse in recent months. Read More »
James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond is denying new reports that say he was behind the 1994 shooting of rapper Tupac Shakur in New York City. Lawyers for the former hip-hop manager have issued a statement in response to an article that was recently published in “The Village Voice.”
The article, by Chuck Philips, said Rosemond made the admission during an information exchange meeting with authorities regarding his drug trafficking case last fall. Now, Rosemond’s lawyer tells Allhiphop that Philips’ article got the story wrong.
Gerald Shargel says Rosemond was indeed asked if he participated in the robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur at Quad Studios during the information exchange, but says his client “categorically denied any participation” in the crime. Read More »
