Rapper/Actor/Philanthropist and the “KING OF THE SOUTH” TIP alongside Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed helped to make Thanksgiving Day 2016 a little brighter by donating turkeys and cheer to needy families. TiP greeted families in need as he and his entire family gave out turkeys, dinner, and other essentials to help these families kick off a   a happy holiday season. I have had the pleasure of taking pics of TIP and his entire family for the past seven years give back in abundance to the City of Atlanta.

Sheree Whitfield back in court and fined $1000

Sheree Whitfield

Sheree Whitfield in Court Nov 18th (Sandy Springs, Georgia)

Sheree Whitfield found herself back in court on Friday (Sandy Springs, GA) Nov. 18th and getting fined $1000 and probation for not only NOT having permission to film inside the Chateau & not having permission to have a house warming party; but seems she hasn’t even received her Certificate of Occupancy to reside in the residence either. (SMH) This may explain why she is yet to move in. You best believe the neighbors were also at the court hearing to further complain about cars being allegedly illegally parked on the neighbor’s lawn and just to complain period.

IF you aren’t familiar with what a Certificate of Occupancy is, let’s look up the definition.

A certificate of occupancy is a document issued by a local government agency or building department certifying a building’s compliance with applicable building codes and other laws, and indicating it to be in a condition suitable for occupancy.

So basically after the 5 year long construction plan the Chateau is still not cleared for occupancy. Of course Sheree pled No Contest but the judge also ordered 18 months of unsupervised probation in addition to the $1000 fine. I guess there won’t be Xmas this year at the Chatteua unless Sheree manages to file for those permits before the Holidays. Looks like Kenya may be winning the bet after all.

According to Tamara Tattles the neighbor that went to court on behalf of the neighborhood had the following to say:

He had to call the police during the Sheree’s event because the cul-de-sac behind her house was over run with party goers who parked on their lawns and blocked access to the street. He also mentioned that the property has numerous code violations. Also, the huge “Chateau Sheree” spotlight was a violation of city code according to the neighbor.

If you are wondering why Sheree hasn’t gotten her Certificate of Occupancy yet or moved in just keep watching the RHOA on Bravo TV Sunday nights at 8pm and the details will unfold. This is why Kenya Moore made the statement on the first episode “if you are going to throw stones, don’t do it from the apartment down the street.” Bloop! Thanks for the heads up Tamara Tattles with all the tea.

Do you think Sheree will get it together in time to have a Christmas party at the Chateau?

You all remember my girl Diamond formerly of Crime Mob and the superstar of Oxygen’s hit docuseries “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” has a lot to smile about these days as she prepares for the birth of her baby boy. The lyrical starlet had an epic Baby Blue Baby Shower over the weekend surrounded by her family and close friends in the ATL. Diamond was all smiles as she posed for dope pictures with her loving fiancé Mr. Payro. I had the pleasure of capturing pictures of her dope baby shower which was all about love and fun.

If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.
