I have Â to tell yall, the entire ATL is going crazy to find out who is going to be the Next Atlanta House Wife. Several sources have told me that the one and only queen of day timeÂ Â television Victoria Rowell is going to be the newest wife to be added to the show, but nothing is set in stone just yet. Â She is best known for two high profile television roles: Drucilla Winters on the daytime drama The Young and the Restless, and her primetime role as Dick Van Dyke’s medical examiner, Â Dr. Amanda Bentley, on Diagnosis: Murder.
I have been told that Bravo is looking at Victoria because she is full of drama and loves to fight. I have to tell yall, after working with people that have worked for her, “She would be the right one for the job”. They say Â “she’s crazy, funny, and made for TV”. Â My only question is I didn’t know she lived in Atlanta …
A little about her back ground: Rowell’s first marriage was to Tom Fahey in 1989. They had a daughter, Maya, and divorced the following year. Rowell had a long-term relationship with musician Wynton Marsalis, and the couple had a son, Jasper (Jasper played Rowell’s son CJ in Diagnosis: Murder). Victoria now has a new boo Radcliffe and just got married on June 27, 2009 in Dublin, NH. But has now moved to the ATL. Remember you heard is first on Freddyo.com…
Lil Wayne will be headed to jail this February, but I know he’s going to come out a better man. Wayne’s got his family and friends that really love him and will always be there for him. The case took place in a New York City courtroom Tuesday where he learned that he will begin his one-year sentence for weapons charges on February 9th. Â “Weezy” remained completely silent during his brief courtroom appearance. Lil Wayne was arrested in 2007 after New York police discovered a gun on his tour bus. He pled guilty to criminal possession of a weapon this past October, and is expected to serve eight to ten months for good behavior.
Unfortunately for Lil Wayne, his legal troubles don’t end in New York. In 2008, he was arrested at a border check point outside of Yuma, Arizona. Authorities discovered several different drugs and a loaded handgun after searching Lil Wayne’s tour bus. Wayne has entered a not guilty plea to several drug and gun charges and is due back in court on March 30th. Lil Wayne’s rock-inspired release “Rebirth” is scheduled to arrive in stores sometime in February.
A man known to police as “Spider-Man” for his daring escapes and who starred in gay adult film videos with his twin brother has been sentenced to three years in prison for burglary in New Jersey.Â Taleon Goffney received the sentence Monday after striking a plea deal with prosecutors in Camden.
Authorities say he sawed through the roofs of businesses and scaled wires to get out. Police also say Goffney once broke out of a police car and swam across a pond in handcuffs to avoid being caught.Â The 27-year-old is serving prison time in Pennsylvania, and has resolved charges in Florida, Alabama and Delaware.
His twin brother, Keyontyli, is free after being sentenced in September to time served in New Jersey.
It appears as if one-time hip-hop couple Nas and Kelis aren’t as filthy rich as some fans might expect. The couple was in court for two days earlier this week for a divorce hearing, and both parties revealed that they have a few financial shortcomings. Kelis acknowledged during the proceedings that she recently signed a 175-thousand-dollar contract with Interscope Records. The “Bossy” singer’s attorney claims, however, that the majority of the contract was paid to managers, leaving Kelis with only 50-thousand-dollars. Kelis would go on to admit that her career is nowhere near where it was in 2003 when her hit track “Milkshake” was heating up the charts. The singer cites her latest single, “Acapella,” which was quietly released via her Twitter account. Kelis’ annual income could not be determined because she has not filed an income tax return in years.
Nas also acknowledged that he has some serious financial obligations. The rapper stated that he owes 700-thousand-dollars to his manager and two-point-five-million-dollars in back taxes to the IRS. Nas went on to testify that he would not release a solo album next year, but did not discuss whether or not that included his Damian Marley collaboration, “Distant Relatives.” Following the hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cunningham ordered the emcee to pay Kelis 51-thousand-101-dollars a month in spousal and child support. Nas was reportedly paying nearly 40-thousand-dollars a month in temporary support. Wednesday’s ruling did relieve Nas of having to pay the 13-thousand-dollar a month mortgage on the pair’s Los Angeles home where Kelis currently lives.
Nas and Kelis tied the knot in 2005. Kelis filed for divorce this past April citing “irreconcilable differences.” The singer gave birth to a baby boy named Knight in July, which is the couple’s only child.
Brandy is having fun taking on a new musical persona. The singer is featured on Timbaland’s new album, “Shock Value Two,” under her new alias Bran’ Nu, and says she loved getting the chance to showcase her rap skills. She tells MTV News, quote, “What I’m doing on the album is a little bit different than what everybody knows me for,” adding, quote, “It was a great experience.

Brandy recently posted a video of herself rhyming on her YouTube account. That’s how Timbaland discovered she could flow. Check Out all the Pics… READ MORE
