It looks like a year in prison cost T.I. more than he — and we — thought it would. He recently revealed that he was supposed to be in numerous movies if he wasn’t in prison. He tells Sister 2 Sister magazine:

A new celeb couple are expecting a baby. This time around it’s singer/producer Ne-Yo and his lovely fiance Monyetta Shaw who are expecting their second child. This comes as surprising news being that she just birthed his first child, a baby girl, this past November.

FreddyO was able to get this exclusive during a Sister 2 Sister event where we saw the glowing mother. Seems like Ne-Yo has a lot on his plate with a mixtape underway, a newborn, and now a fiance who is pregnant again. Nonetheless, this comes as good news being that Ne-Yo is at his prime and this is the time to expand your family if you ask me. Check out some of the pictures from the awesome event. Also, if you haven’t already been to their new store make sure you get out and support them. Congratulations Ne-Yo and Monyetta on the new addition to your family!

The Mason Murer Fine Arts Gallery was the stage for Sister 2 Sister magazine’s Ladies Night. The party, thrown by Chicago-born magazine publisher and socialite, Jamie Foster Brown, including a number of celebrities, vendors and lots of black female professionals.

A number of popular female celebrities and influential women came to the event, Meeka Claxton of Basketball Wives, Ne-Yo’s fiance, Monyetta Shaw, and Michael Vick’s fiance, Kijafa Frink.

Toya Wright of Toya: A Family Affair promoted her new book, “Priceless Inspirations,” which recently made number 1 on the NY Times Best Seller list.

Rapper Diamond made an appearance, posing here with Trina and Towanda Braxton of Braxton Family Values.

R&B newcomer T’melle performed at the end of the night. D. Woods of Danity Kane was also present and R&B crooner Bobby V made a surprise cameo.

Vendors sold everything from high end designer clothes and shoes, to black hair products to wheat grass pills to free massages. The majority of the vendors were black female entrepenuers and offered high quality goods and services; Lamik’s provided the free makeovers and Ultimate Vodka provided the drinks.

My girl Lisa Wu Hartwell was scheduled to make an appearance, but told me she was having plane trouble out in LA. But Kandi Buruss, former Xscape group member and co-star of Housewives of Atlanta, made an appearance in the final hour. Check out the pics and drop a few comments:
