Last night, I had the opportunity to kick it with “R&B Divas” star KeKe Wyatt and her husband Michael, as they watched the show for the first time. The event took place at Real House Wives of Atlanta Star Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas, restaurant / Lounge Bar 1, P.S. the food was great!!!!   I love me some Miss Wyatt, who is about to releases a new single with Avont very soon. (P.S. S. The photo above is of KeKe and her husband the one she’s lickin’ and her brother) LOL Now back to the story…

In the first episode, one of the more shocking storylines was that KeKe and her husband’s reaction to Monifah’s girlfriend. Contrary to last night’s episode, Keke nor her husband are not homophobic. In fact, Keke’s husband wants us to know that he’s not homophobic at all, was just a bit surprised.

Word on the street is that Nicki is going the cast of one of the biggest reality TV shows on TV.  Two sources have exclusively confirmed that rapper/singer Nicki Minaj has signed a deal to join the judging panel of “American Idol.” READ MORE

Over the weekend we heard sad yet shocking news about one of the biggest female artist in hip hop.  Sources report Nicki Minaj  was forced to pull out of the U.K.’s V Festival this weekend due to a “bruised vocal cord.”

 

A rep for Minaj sent an email to MTV News explaining that the problems actually started earlier this week before last Tuesday’s show in New York.  Minaj’s doctor had suggested she not perform, but Nicki took the stage anyway.

Nicki tweeted:  READ MORE
