The NBA season is still on hold but “shoot”, who needs ‘em? The lockout couldn’t keep  Atlanta Hawks player,Damien Wilkins and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member NeNe Leakes from teaming up for a fun exhibition game Saturday to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta. Damien took the court with some his NBA buddies: Anthony Morrow, Chris Wilcox, Derrick Favors, James Harden, Jarrett Jack, Jeff Green, Jeff Teague, Joe Johnson, Jordan Crawford, Lou Williams, MarShon Brooks, Mike Beasley, Rudy Gay, Shannon Brown, Solomon Jones, Travis Leslie and Trey Thompkins.

NeNe Leakes and award winning  producer Drumma Boy were the “celebrity coaches” for the Fan Fest which was held at Clark Atlanta University.

Freddyo caught up with .NeNe to get the scoop on this season Real Housewives of Atlanta which airs Nov 6. Leakes assured us that it will be packed with drama (as usual) and we will get a chance to see more of a business side from the Georgia peaches on the show.

The busy mom of 2 revealed details of her business endeavors she’s working on. She just opened a store in the Sacremento airport, she’s working on a shoe line and a Moscato line. Although her and Greg arent together, dont expect to see Leakes dashing down the aisle yet, when asked about her dating life she simply said “Everybody wanna know if I have a new boo and the answer is NO”.

You can expect to see a new face on the RHOA and she goes by the name of Marlo. Ne Ne stated Marlo has a reoccurring role on the show and will shake things up a little.

Up and comming singer Karmella Daniel kicked off the event by singing the national anthem.

To say that her voice and fashion game is fabolous will be an understatement.

Make sure you check out her first single entitled “Karma” featuring rapper Cyhi Da Prynce.

Untitled (P.B, Nixx &Intro), Ludacris new R&B group hailing from Toronto performed at halftime.

The trio said they love having Luda as a boss and spoke about the inspiration behind their name “Untitled”.

“We was about to do our very first show and we didnt have a group name..the lady basciallyy introduced us as Untitled and we just stuck with it” says Intro.

Freddyo also caught up with L.A Lakers superstar Shannon Brown. The Boys and Club is something thats dear to his heart so when Damien and his agent brought up the opportunity Shannon said he couldnt pass it up. Although he’s not sure where he’s spending Thanksgiving he can happily say that married life with  R&B singer Monica is “going great”.

Shannon Brown along with Atlanta Hawks player Jeff Teague discussed their feeling s on the lockout and both hope for a postive outcome. Teague looks to utlize his time off by enrolling back in college. ‘Imma major in communications so one day I’ll be interviewing like yall” Teague joked. It was good to see NBA players forget about the lockout and hoop for a cause. READ MORE

R.I.P Heavy D: **UPDATE**

As we told you yesterday, the Hip Hop community lost one of their legendary rappers Heavy D at the age of 44. According to TMZ a call was placed to 911 stating that a man was unconscious in the hallway aroung 11:00 a.m. Whenever paramedics finally arrived Heavy D was reportedly responsive and even speaking but was still rushed to a nearby hospital where he was soon after pronounced dead. Cops are continously investigating this death and have said that there were no signs of any foul play. Check inside for the update.

“Heavy D had just returned from shopping and walked up some stairs when he began having trouble breathing. Adam Mills, a designer who was in the building and knew Heavy D, found him leaning against a railing and clearly in distress. Adam tells us he cradled Heavy D in his lap as others called 911. Adam says Heavy D was conscious and said to him, “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.” When paramedics took Heavy D to the hospital he had a pulse. People in the building are saying he died of a heart attack, but we have not been able to confirm that. Law enforcement sources tell us … no foul play was involved and so far they only know the cause of death was “medical.”

Dwight Arrington Myers was born in 1967 in Jamaica and with his group ‘Heavy D & The Boyz,’ he reached fame with his 1987 Uptown Records release ‘Livin’ Large.’ He’s most recognized as rapping the theme songs for the hit shows ‘In Living Color’ and ‘Mad TV,’ as well as being featured on the song ‘Jam’ with Michael Jackson. He’s had featured acting roles on ‘The Tracy Morgan Show,’ Cider House Rules,’ ‘Life’ with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, ‘Bones,’ ‘Boston Public,’ and most recently having a cameo role in the movie ‘Tower Heist,’ which hit theaters last Friday.

We last seen Heavy D at the  BET Hip Hop Awards last month where he performed some of his old hits and looked absolutely fine as he lit up the stage and hyped fans. Once again our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. R.I.P Heavy D!
