So, let’s say you are an inexplicable Reality TV hit. You are the color and size of a circus peanut and a little less mentally and socially functional than say … ‘Corky’ and for some reason you earn more than a school teacher. You are one lucky Batch! That said, there are some vipers out there, and when you meet a guy you should probably use extreme caution. Especially, if he is proposing after two weeks. Especially if he is proposing after 2 weeks all greased up. Especially if he is proposing after 2 weeks all greased up on the cover of a ‘magazine’.
RUN Schnickers, this guy aint right! No, I’m sorry.. this guy is CRAZY AS SHITE!
The pint-sized “Jersey Shore” star’s boyfriend of at least two weeks, Jeff Miranda, is using the cover of Steppin’ Out magazine to ask for her hand in marriage.
For the magazine’s Sept. 10 issue cover shoot, a shirtless Miranda — wearing the bottom half of a Desert Camouflage Uniform, a nod to his Iraq war veteran status — got down on one knee, posing next to a headline that reads: “Jeff Miranda has a question for Snooki. Will you marry me?”
“I love her and want to be with her,” Miranda told Steppin’ Out about the unconventional proposal. “Once she deals with the shock, I think [she'll] say yes. I really do. In fact, I know she’ll say yes.” (BREW COMMENTARY: “OR I’LL BREAK HER EFFIN’ LEGS!!”)
Sources told Radar that Miranda’s “whole Guido thing is something totally new. He’s become a gym rat and hooked-up with Snooki to get popularity and fame.”
It’s an accusation that Miranda, of Millstone, New Jersey, refuted in Steppin’ Out. “People think I’m using her for fame. But that’s bulls- – -,” he said. (Meanwhile, it’s been reported that he removed his “Jersey Shore” audition reel from the Web yesterday morning.)
When Miranda initially hooked up with Snooki — Nicole Polizzi, 22 — it was revealed that his ex-girlfriend got a temporary restraining order against him in April 2009. (BREW COMMENTARY: YEA THAT SEEMS NORMAL)

What ever happened to the good lady rappers?

Phaedra Parks, the newest “real” housewife of the ATL is a lawyer who’s repped Bobby Brown (poor thing) and other high-profile entertainers. Now, she’s in the mix on one of the most dramatic pieces of work on the teevay (*sarcasm*). Parks is also in the midst of a little bit of controversy herself. But I think that’s a prerequisite to be on the “Housewives.” The attorney is married to a man with a criminal past. Parks seems to think she’s doing the community a service by marrying a felon.

VIBE asked Fantasia if she thinks her darker skin and African features have made her a target in the media while more acceptable
mistresses singers like Alicia Keys, LeAnn Rimes and Britney Spears seemingly get a pass. Clearly, her reading still isn’t up to snuff cuz these broads got bad press too. But, I digress.
“Yes, I do. I really feel like it does. I was on Nancy Grace, CNN, every gospel station and in every magazine and every newspaper. It was on. You would have thought I was the President or something.”
“I’ve battled and have had to deal with that before. Lord forgive me and I don’t want to offend anybody, but when [I did Idol] it seemed like everybody there was Barbied out. Slim, long hair, light eyes, light-skinned. And here I come with my dark skin, full nose, short hair and full lips — it was hard.”
Sidebar: did she forget Jennifer Hudson and LaToya London were on her season too?
“They never put me in those magazines [featuring] the red carpet. Everybody there has long hair and everybody is bright-skinned, and I was like, ‘But wait a minute. They never gave me that.’ That bothered me.”
“One day I was like, ‘that’s okay’, but I had to get to that point. I am a dark-skinned, full-lipped sister and it’s all right.”
Fantasia (and her “people,” assuming she has some) love touting her as the “victim.”
Teen mother? ✓
Mooched by her family? ✓
Nearly swindled by her daddy? ✓
“He’s married but he never told me all dat?” ✓
Yaada yaada yaada. Take charge, girl! You can’t play the victim all your life, boo boo.
Meanwhile, there’s word Fantasia might be pregnant. I’m tired of this broad… so hop over to The Hollywood Gossip to find out more.
