I’m dating myself but late singer Teddy Pendergrass was everything to my mom and her friends growing up. I mean mom even had some Teddy Pendergrass jeans! That’s how hot he was. Oh, for you youngins picture Tre Songz in all his shirtless singing whiny glory x 2! In case you don’t know Teddy’s story; at his peak he crashed his Rolls Royce into a tree in Philadelphia and was paralyzed. The identity of his passenger was always somewhat of a mystery, but word on the curb was that she was transgendered prostitute. Needless to say, it was a wrap for all things Teddy after that and I have no idea what happened to my mom’s jeans. Well, Mother Oprah will dig up some stuff won’t she? She’s like TMZ without the underlying racism because she found Tenika Wilson who is now sharing her story about that fateful night on “Where Are They Now?”
The Truth About Teddy Pendergrass’ Horrific Car Accident
Whoa, that’s deep!

If you’re a Bravo-ite, Bravotarian
like me, then you’re familiar with Blood, Sweat & Heels
, the classed-up version of Bravo’s reality offerings that was supposed to show a group of 30-something black women making their way up the professional ladder in NYC. Wellll, if you watched, then you know the show got off to a rocky start, with yelling, public drunkenness, table dances and whatnot. The cast attempted to pull it together at the end of the season but it was clear the show was like 3 seconds from tap dancing on the line to ratchet at any given moment. Fast forward to last night, some of the cast members were filming on board a boat in New York when video mottel
turned wannabe real estate agent Melyssa Ford and writer Geneva Thomas got into it on said boat. The night ended with Thomas popping a bottle (literally) on Ford’s head, causing her to need several staples and leaving her with a bloodied foot. Thomas was arrested on assault charges. Bravo’s cameras caught it all (naturally), and so did some stunned Instagrammers.

It’s not Thomas’ first brush with the law. She was recently arrested for skipping out on an $18 cab fare. Meanwhile, former cast member Demetria Lucas used the show to expand her brand and is currently on an international tour promoting book #2 while Wesley Snipes and the video vixen are fighting on a boat……sips tea.
Will you be checking for season two of this show or have you tapped out?

While Keyshia “Fish Plate” Cole is running around handing out Floyd Mayweathers to love rivals, her ex-boo, Daniel Boobie Gibson is talking about their failed marriage to VLAD TV. Now I’ve always been a big fan of Boobie since the couples’ reality show, Keyshia and Daniel: Family First. He’s a cutie, and has some damn sense, but I really like what he has to say about love and marriage. As far as a youngin’ goes, he gets it!

A television reporter and owner of a marijuana activist club in Anchorage, Alaska quit during a live broadcast. Charlo Greene, who was reporting on efforts to legalize marijuana, revealed she was the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club then said “f*ck it, I quit” and walked off! Damn, girl!
Hmmmm black, marijuana activist from Anchorage? Oh, she different! But I did read somewhere that the ratio of men to woman in Alaska is like 20 to 1! So Char and her Lands Ends gear be all up in the great frontier smoking blunts with the loggers? Okay, then boo.
<— the “how you say some silly shyt like that” look
White Jesus only knows why Deb Antney from
No Love & No Hip Hop Atlanta is my spirit animal! I guess ratchet television makes for some strange bedfellows. I think she reminds me of the candy lady in the ‘jects who wheels and deals all damn day with an unlit Newport hanging out of her mouth. You already know Wacka Flocka’s mama is everyone’s first pick in spades because won’t NO RENEGING be taking place, SON! YOU RENEGE? YOU DIE! Deb is like the wise, raspy-voiced hood mom who schooled you on everything from relationships to why TOPS will always be better than Backwoods. All this advice while you sat on her plastic kitchen chair drinking her good juice from a Dollar Store pitcher. She looks like the auntie who don’t never bring shyt to the cookout but she’s leaving with a bag filled with plates for her boo who couldn’t make it and you betta not say anything! Deb looks like she sleeps with her eyes open in her big chair, near the window and when someone tries to whisper in the back room, she yells, “I heard that bamma!” Pair all that together and she could run for President. I would vote for her. You know the budget will be balanced like a mug, cuz Deb ain’t taking no shorts on the 1st! #mahboo
She talks about some of her experiences growing up in Queens!
Was I lying?
