I LOVE THE FOOLISHNESS: GO GO FENTY HEE HAWS FOR DC VOTERS!

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

"He the only mayor I know that don't ride with no secret service or NUFFIN...the man is gully!"

There is a highly anticipated mayoral race underway in Washington D.C. between incumbent Mayor Adrian Fenty and DC Chairman Vincent Gray.

Although, I am really disappointed in many of the decisions Fenty has made as mayor of  DC, I haven't really done much research on Gray, so I'm undecided until September 14.

Now to the important stuff, please feast your eyes on this utterly hysterical video (after the break) of Mayor Fenty being schooled on how to do the "hee haw," an old school DC GoGo dance, by none other than a member from the Junk Yard Band during a neighborhood concert.

YOU KNOW YOU DONE PHUCKED RIGHT: FANTASIA & ANTWAUN SPOTTED TOGETHER

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



This past Friday (8/13), season 3 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino and her rumored married boyfriend Antwaun Cook were snapped in what appears to be deep conversation at a local park in Charlotte North Carolina.

The two met up just days after Barrino was hospitalized for an apparent overdose which may have been triggered by reports that surfaced earlier that week that Fantasia had been named as the mistress in a divorce complaint filed by Mr. Cook's estranged wife.

VH1 cameras were reportedly on hand at the park filming Fantasia and Antwaun's meet-up and the meeting will likely air on the 2nd season of Barrino's VH1 reality hit Fantasia for Real

The new season will be airing on September 19, 2010.

FANTASIA'S OVERDOSE TRIGGERED BY BEING NAMED THE MISTRESS IN DIVORCE

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



This past Monday a scandal erupted when season 3 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino was named in a divorce complaint filed by Paula Cook, a North Carolina woman who alleges that Barrino is responsible for the destruction of her marriage.

Since last year, many gossip outlets had reported that Barrino was involved with a married man by the name of Antwaun Cook.

Fantasia sports a tattoo of Cooks name near her shoulder

In the complaint, Mrs. Cook claims that Barrino and her husband Antwaun met at a T-Mobile store he managed near Barrino’s home in August 2009. The complaint goes onto allege that not long after Barrino met Cook she began flying him to Atlanta, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Barbados to accompany the singer on trips. Mrs. Cook divorce complaint also alleges that her husband and Barrino videotaped “their illicit sexual activity.”

It is important to note that North Carolina is one of the few states where an adulterer, allegedly Fantasia, can be sued by a plaintiff-spouse, Mrs. Cook and the adulterer can be required to pay the plainitff alimony.

The situation intensified on Monday night when it was reported that Barrino had accidentally overdosed. The singer’s manager, Brian Dickens called 911 on Monday evening to report that Fantasia had swallowed a bottle of aspirin. Fantasia was rushed to Mercy South Hospital at Carolinas Medical Center in Pineville, N.C., were she was treated.

Dickens released a statement to the press where he said among other things, that Barrino is in stable condition.

LINDSAY LOHAN GETS ANIMATED | TOMMY HILFIGER'S SON CHARGED WITH FELONY FOR ATTEMPTED DISTRIBUTION

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



A Taiwanese video maker has poked fun at troubled actress (at this point the term “actress” is being used loosely) Lindsay Lohan’s 13-day stint in jail by creating this hysterical animation which chronicles everything from Lohan's reaction to a judge sentencing her to 90-days in jail to Lindsay “dropping the soap” in jail and possibly being violated. She's finally released to a plush rehabilitation center at the end of the clip.

IT'S A CELEBRATION BITCHES: PROP 8 IS OVERTURNED!

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Photo credit: Jason Redmond/EPA

On Wednesday, Chief U.S. District Judge,Vaughn Walker of San Francisco struck down California's ban on same-sex marriage, ruling that the voter-approved Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution.

Walker wrote in his opinion,
"Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples," .

"Race restrictions on marital partners were once common in most states but are now seen as archaic, shameful or even bizarre," he added. "Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage; marriage under law is a union of equals."
To read more on this story head on over to CNN!

I've never understood why some laws and certain individuals discriminate against others based on who they choose to share their beds with...it's all so archaic and as Salt & Pepper rapped, none of your damn business!

Separation of church and state...I repeat, separation of church and state!

If lawmakers followed those guidelines set in the Constitution, legislation like Prop 8 would probably not be an issue, let alone exist.

PAY YO' FARE!: YOUNG BUCK, OBIE TRICE, SWIZZ BEATZ & WYCLEF ALL OWE THE IRS

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne



According to MTV News, the IRS raided rapper Young Bucks home at gunpoint this week!

Damn, what part of the game is that?

While Buck's lawyers filed a motion last month to protect his assets, the former G-Unit MC's house was raided Tuesday by the United States Internal Revenue Service for $300,000 in unpaid taxes. Ultimately, the rapper was allowed to keep his home and his car; however, many of the items inside were seized.

"The worst part of this isn't the material stuff — that will all be replaced, it's what it does to the people around me. They took my kids' PlayStation, my assistants' computers, and baby's mothers' jewelry. They took my home studio so I can't even record."
Buck blames 50 and dem for his accounting problems.
"I have a new team in place, but I am also paying full attention now," the statement continued. "Nothing like this will ever happen again. This is a huge wake-up call for all entertainers to stay on top of your own trusted employees and team members, and replace anyone that was put in place by your record label if the situation you have goes sour. This IRS situation came about because I trusted accountants, lawyers and managers to handle my business for me while I focused on making music. From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business."



In June, the IRS filed a $298,051 tax lien against Eminem's former protege rapper Obie Trice, with the Wayne County Register of Deeds. The address on the lien is the rapper’s mother's home in Detroit.

Detroit News could not reach the rapper for a comment, but they were able to speak with Trice’s father who is also named Obie Trice. Trice senior said he would try to pass a message along to his son and he also explained he didn't know anything about the tax lien.

However Trice senior added, "I know that's not me. I've never made that kind of money to get that kind of tax debt.”

WELLING LIKE WELLINGTON PARK: WHOOPI ASSAULTS WHITE HOUSE PARTY CRASHERS ON THE VIEW

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

Photo: People Magazine

Yesterday on The View, the new cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of D.C. (RHODC) were guests on the show and everything was going as planned until one of the RHODC cast (take a wild guess who) claimed to producers that co-host Whoopi Goldberg had *side eye* assaulted her.


When Michaele Salahi and her Real Housewives of D.C. castmates — Mary Schmidt Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Stacie Scott Turner — appeared on the ABC talk show, the newly-minted reality star was rattled after she said Whoopi Goldberg, who was offstage for the segment, walked on the set, touched her arm and tried to refocus her on the topic at hand: her alleged crashing of the White House state dinner last November (Roxxy: I'm still peeved (but understand why) Desiree Rogers lost her job over these fools).

Though the encounter occupied no more than several seconds of airtime, offstage, an ugly scene reportedly happened when Salahi and her husband Tareq complained to producers about what she tells PEOPLE was a “humiliating and torturous” experience at the hands of Goldberg — and her View co-hosts.

“The first encounter I had with this woman is her grabbing my arm and telling me to change the subject,” Salahi tells PEOPLE in a phone interview Thursday. “It was very inappropriate … They want to torture me. I didn’t know [being interviewed on the View] would be this horrific.”

According to a statement on ABC’s Web site, Salahi told producers that Goldberg “hit” her. Salahi tells PEOPLE she used the word “grab.”

Goldberg doesn’t deny the backstage confrontation happened but denies she hit Salahi. “You know how I [denied it],” she said, “choice words. And I make no apology for my choice words.”

But the situation escalated after Salahi’s husband Tareq intervened.

“Tareq, my husband, said you need to apologize to my wife,” Salahi tells PEOPLE. “Whoopi doesn’t like to be told what to do. He said, ‘We’re just guests and this is an inappropriate way to treat guests.’ “

But Goldberg says Tareq “got in [her] face, had his BlackBerry out and started taking pictures of me. And needless to say, I really went off on him. And there was even more choice words. It was so choice, you could have cut it with a knife and eaten them.”

At this point, Salahi says, “I was really sobbing (Roxxy: cry me a phucking river!). I just wanted to get out of there.”

While Goldberg had no more to say about the matter Thursday, and co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck read a statement on air from Salahi’s attorney reiterating that no charges were levied after the alleged White House crashing incident, Salahi says she doesn’t understand where all the purported hostility came from on the set of The View.

“Whoopi, I don’t know you. I never saw Sister Act,” she says. “I don’t know much about her. The fact that I have had no encounters with her except this hostility, I don’t know where it’s coming from. It’s just another really painful learning lesson.” Source
Pardon my gangsta Chicks and Dicks but I have to justify my thug. I just couldn't muster up the strength to stith through the foolishness in this bullshit ass story to type out an accurate account of what occurred...so I let People Magazine do what it do!

Now that I have gotten that out the way, Salahis please go play in traffic in Nigeria TODAY!

Michaele knows good and well that 1) Whoopi did not hit her raggedy ass (By the way, fire your colorist STAT! From the looks of your hair on last nights RHODC premier, she clearly doesn't want you to win!) and 2) her and shady ass husband just want to be as Suge Knight once famously put it, all up in the videos, i.e. they just wanna be seen...knock yourself out!

Oh and another thing Michaele, stop frontin' like you don't know who Whoopi be...you might not have ever seen Sister Act I or Sister Act II (I doubt it...the fact that you reference that particular movie out of all the movies Whoopi's starred in, let's me know you're welling!), but you have definitely seen Ghost, Color Purple...shit even Jumpin' Jack Flash!

In related news, the Washington Post no likely RHODC representation of Capitol area women and feel the network should focus on women making a postive impact in the comunity like these 3 unsung heroes!

SHAQ SIGNS WITH BOSTON | MATT BARNES & GLORIA GOVAN CALL OFF WEDDING | RON ARTEST GUEST HOST TMZ



According to ESPN, Shaquille “Shaq” O'Neal aka "The Big Aristotle" (lol!) has signed a 2 season contract to play with NBA’s Boston Celtics, worth $3 million.

Shaq will join teammates Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnet (cutie!), Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and newly signed center Jermaine O’Neal (no relation).
"I am honored to be joining the Celtics," Shaq said in a statement issued by the club. "I have played against Paul, Ray, Kevin, Rajon, and Jermaine for many years and it will be great to be able to call them my teammates. I cannot wait to get to Boston to get started in pursuit of another championship." Source

First Miami scores Lebron and D-Wade on the same team (honestly can’t include Bosh because I never heard of him before the trade) and then Lakers score Matt Barnes (more on him later) yall know I’m just phucking with you…As Shaunie said, “Matt who?” now the Celtics get Shaq to add to their high profile roster… I think I’m going to have to actively start watching NBA games again!

This is taking me back to my childhood years in the late 80’s and 90’s when there was at least 4 superstars players on every team; you knew there names even if you weren’t into basketball …ah, back when the NBA was exciting to watch!

Now if we can only get my guy A.I. on a winning team so he can get at least one championship before he retires…all will be right in my world.

WYCLEF OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES HIS PLAN TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF HAITI | IS SEAN PENN J.O.S.E.IN?

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne




Former Fugee star Wyclef Jean has formally filed papers to run for president of Haiti in the country's upcoming election on November 28. Jean wrote,
Dear Reader,
My four-year-old daughter, Angelina, and my wife, Claudinette, are the angels of my life -- and I know this year has been especially trying for them, as my efforts for Haiti have taken so much more of my time since January, when the devastating earthquake nearly destroyed my home country. In fact, my concern for my family was my primary thought as I was being urged by others to seek the presidency of Haiti.
Jean is a native of Haiti and was very visible assisting the struggling country during the earthquake disaster relief earlier this year. Jean reportedly raised $9 million in earthquake relief donations through his non-profit organization Yele.

However, Jean who was the chairman of the organization (he officially stepped down as chairman of Yele yesterday) came under scrutiny when it was alleged that he was paid by the organization to perform at fundraising events and that Yele had purchase advertising air time from a television station he co-owns.

Jean has vehemently denied any misappropriations of Yele funds, however now that he has formally announced his plan to run for president of Haiti people like actor Sean Penn are "very suspicious" of his motives.

KANYE PREMIERS "POWER" VIDEO TOMORROW ON MTV


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Rapper/mega producer Kanye West is set to premier his new video Power off his highly anticipated 4th album, formerly titled Good Ass Job, on MTV tomorrow (8/5).
In a coming video for his single “Power” that was directed by the artist Marco Brambilla, Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The Sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade. Source


Kanye wrote on his Twitter page in reference to his new video (sidebar: follow The Chick Fix on Twitter!),
"THE 'PORTRAIT OF POWER' PREMIERS THIS THURSDAY ON MTV RIGHT AFTER JERSEY SHORE...IT'S NOT A VIDEO... IT'S A PAINTING!!!"

Madonna says in a promotional video for Macy's,
"I always have two reactions when Lola comes into my room with an outfit on. One is, oh my God, she looks amazing, what incredible style. My second reaction is, she's dressed completely inappropriately for school … she has a kind of a uniform at her school. Because there's a restriction, it makes her have to be more creative and more resourceful. I really like the way Lola dresses, and this line is an extension of her taste."
Madonna says she chose to bring her new line to Macy's because it "seem[ed] like a no-brainer." She adds, "Macy's is accessible, everybody goes there --  there are stores across the country." Source

DAMN WHY THEY WANNA STICK ME FOR MY PAPER: TIGER GIVES ELLIN FLORIDA HOME

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

Tiger "I Phucks" Woods and wife Ellin

Accordng to My Fox Atlanta, Tiger Woods will be giving his soon to be ex-wife Ellin Nordegren the Florida home the couple once shared as part of their multi-million dollar divorce settlement.
A source told [RadarOnline] that most of the terms of the couple’s divorce have been agreed upon. Nordegren was initially going to take a home under construction in Jupiter, Fla., but changed her mind and decided she wanted the Windermere, Fla., home the couple once shared, the source said.
Woods had been living in the Windemere home since he and Nordegren separated but will reportedly move into the Jupiter home permanently.

“It’s got a state of the art gym and was built to his specs. And it keeps him just a few hours’ drive from his children,” the source told RadarOnline.
The source said Nordegren has not decided if she will move into the Windermere home or sell it. “But one thing is for sure, she will walk away from the marriage with enough money to do whatever she wants,” the source added.

The couple separated after a confrontation last November over Woods’ affair with New York hostess Rachel Uchitel. Woods entered a rehab program for sex addiction, where he admitted to affairs with as many as 120 women (damn whoadie!), according to a National Enquirer report.
The former couple's home

"Damn, why they wanna stick me for my paper..."

120 women though Tiger...Ellin you might want to visit your OBGYN, if you haven't already!

PRES. OBAMA REPEALS CRACK LAW | LADY GAGA ADMITS TO COCAINE USE | GUNPLAY ON VIDEO TOOTING

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act bill today repealing the disparities in sentencing for use of crack and powder cocaine. The former law was enacted 25 years ago and it had an overwhelming affect on the rise in prison population.

In 1980 drug offenders in federal prisons went from fewer than 5,000 to nearly 100,000 in 2009.
Washington (CNN) --The enactment of the law seals a hard-fought victory for civil rights activists who have argued for years that the differing punishments unfairly target African-Americans.


The Fair Sentencing Act repeals a five-year mandatory sentence for first time offenders, and for repeat offenders with less than 28 grams of crack cocaine. The old law set the mandatory sentence for conviction at five grams.

African-Americans have been far more likely than whites and Hispanics to be convicted for -- and receive the harsher penalties associated with -- possession of crack cocaine, according to government statistics. White and Hispanic defendants are more frequently charged with possession of powder cocaine. Source
It's encouraging to hear that the bill was passed in the House and Senate through bipartisan means. However, there is always one j.o.s.e.r who just wanna be seen and in this case it's Republican House Judiciary Committee member Lamar Smith (I know what you're think, no he's not black) ofTexas.

He reportedly argued passionately against the passing the bill shortly before its passage.

"Reducing the penalties for crack cocaine could expose our neighborhoods to the same violence and addiction that caused Congress to act in the first place," Smith said. "Crack cocaine is associated with a greater degree of violence than most other drugs. And more than any other drug, the majority of crack defendants have prior criminal convictions."
Basically what Smith is saying is if the bill is passed then the cracked out Coloreds will be free to terrorize us!

You're concerns are duly noted Smith...now have a coke (The beverage, get you minhd o ut the gutter!) and a smile and hush-de-phuck!

'Preciate ya!

THINGS BAMMAS SAY: MONTANA FISHBURNE

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne





As I previously reported, Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fisburne's daughter Montana Fisburne plans to release a sex tape this month in hopes that it will garner her Kim Kardashian-like success.

If that wasn't enough foolishness to last a lifetime, Chippy-D (Montana's porn name) recently let more madness seep from her mouth.

When TMZ asked Chippy-D how she thought her father felt about her Heather Hunter-esque ambitions this bamma ass broad said, 
"I think he wants to support me in everything I do, and though he sees this now as a negative, I believe in time he will view it as a positive."

FASHION FIX: KATE MOSS IS THE FACE OF BALMAIN

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

In this Balmain ad Moss is shot lounging in a leather sofa photographed by Inez & Vinoodh 

Super model Kate Moss is the new face of French fashion design house Balmain's Autumn/Winter 2010-11 campaign.

Many fashion insiders says choosing Moss as the face for Balmain was a no brainer, since she embodies the modern and edgey look of the design house. 

It also doesn't hurt that Moss is said to be a huge fan of the line.

LINDSAY LOHAN GETS OUT OF JAIL AND HEADS STRAIGHT TO REHAB



Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Lohan's 2010 mugshot

Actress Lindsay Lohan was released from the Lynwood jail in California on Monday (8/2) at 1:35 a.m. and sent straight to an undisclosed (which I'm sure the paps will disclose in the coming days) L.A. area rehab facility.

Lohan was expecting to serve her court-ordered three months in rehab at Morningside Recovery in Orange County California, but Judge Revel changed her mind last minute over the weekend because she was concerned that drugs could be easily passed onto Lohan.
Lohan was sentenced to 90-days in prison last month for violating the terms of her probation in a former DUI case. However, she only served 13 days of her sentence due to jail overcrowding and because of good behavior...no justice, no peace!

According to a source Lohan was upset that she was not able to visit with her family before beginning her stint in rehab.
"[Lindsay] feels that she deserved to spend a day with her family after she behaved well in jail," says the source.  Lohan, the source adds, is feeling "depressed." "[She] is having a difficult time accepting that she will be in rehab for the next three months," the source says. "She still doesn't think that she needs any help."

Naturally any person would be upset at not being able to see their famil, but under these circumstances Lindsay gets the side-eye from me.

First, it's not like her family didn't visit her during her all of 13-day stint in jail...cry me a river Leila (inside joke) Lindsay...cry me a phucking river!

Second, it is not like Lindsay's family can't visit her in rehab.

Finally, what I think it all boils down to is: 1) Lindsay thought she would be spending her rehab stint at Morningside where it would have been easy to score drugs to get blazed and 2) Lindsay also probably thought she would be able to visit her family before her stint and get blazed on the sneak.

Notice the central theme here is Lindsay trying to get blazed...well the Judge was one step ahead of you boo and nipped your plan in the bud!

Lindsay, this is for your own good...you need to shape up before you permanently wipe out!

Academy Award-winning actor Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller are back for the third installment of the Meet the Parents franchise with Little Fockers.
The test of wills between Jack Byrnes (Robert De Niro) and Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) escalates to new heights of comedy in the third installment of the blockbuster series—Little Fockers. Laura Dern, Jessica Alba and Harvey Keitel join the returning all-star cast for a new chapter of the worldwide hit franchise. It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Teri Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack’s suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam’s entire clan—including Pam’s lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)—descends for the twins’ birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next patriarch... or will the circle of trust be broken for good? Source

NEW DOCUMENTARY CENTERS AROUND TUPAC & MIKE TYSON'S FRIENDSHIP

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne




ESPN will be airing a documentary titled One Night in Vegas, which chronicles the late rapper Tupac Shakur and former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson's friendship.

The documentary will also detail the events of the tragic night of September 7, 1996, when Tupac was shot  and fatally wounded just minutes after watching Tyson's boxing match in Las Vegas.  

The show will air on ESPN on September 7, which marks the 14th anniversary of that fateful night. The documentary is a part of ESPN's "30 for 30" movie series.

Mike spoke with MTV last month about his friend Tupac.
"He looked very destructive. He came across as a world beater," Tyson said. "As far as his music was concerned, his presence and his energy ... the word I'm looking for is fearless. He came across as fearless. When you come across somebody that's fearless, you're a little bit in awe. You're like. 'Whoa!' He's ready to blow, too, at any moment; very volatile. He's very focused. He can go from one second to the next and get very focused." Source
 I'll be watching, will you?

Sidebar: I recently watched the Tyson documentary and it's such an entertaining but honest look at Mike's life from the beginning to the end of his boxing career. I highly recommend you Chicks and Dicks check it out!
