Well sweet Jesus! TV foolishness is at an all time high! Between the Real Housewives of Atlanta and Keyshia Coles's show, which features FRANKIE I just be damned! I have no real words all I can do is enjoy this ish and be happy about it. I will say this though I loves loves loves me some FRANKIE. Now the foolishness with the Real Housewives has got to be the most ummmm yeah I don't know but I'll be so tuning in next Tuesday. Not real sure what's up with all the random Essence.com interviews but Lisa Wu's husband Ed Hartwell is really making Keith Sweat's camp go there on them. Below is an excerpt from Ed Hartwell's interview over on Essence.com in addition the response from one of Keith Sweat's folks. Can't we all just get along? Hells to the no no!
ESSENCE.COM: Well, let's end it here. How is your relationship with Lisa's sons, Justin and Jordan?
HARTWELL: Me and my sons have a great relationship. I tell everyone I have three sons. They call me dad; I never say my stepkids, they are my sons. Every kid is different but they are both wonderful children. My eldest son is about to turn 14 and I have conversations with him that I can't have with Justin. Jordan wants to train, so now we're both training.
ESSENCE.COM; That's great that you're involved in their lives. Do you have a good relationship with their father, Keith Sweat?
HARTWELL: Not at all. The reason is because [when I started dating] Lisa there was a lot that I had to stop from happening. I had to lay down the law, man to man. Have I tried to work out some things and put our differences to the side for the sake of the kids? Absolutely. I don't like to play games.
*Response on behalf of Keith Sweat*
"I don’t understand how anybody can call anybody out or put their foot down to the custodial parent who has all the rights! What would he give a basis to lay down the law based on? How does Keith respond to that? Ed Hartwell has no rights over Keith’s kids. None! Zero! He has no merit. [Hartwell] gets to see the kids because he happens to be married to Keith’s ex-wife.
Here is Keith’s statement: Keith is raising his kids to be normal, well-adjusted young men. He is busy raising his children 24/7. He is totally responsible for all aspects of his kids’ lives: education, health, welfare, insurance, college education. He chooses the clothes, he chooses where they vacation. He drops them off and picks them up from school every day. The courts gave him unilateral rights regarding his children. They didn’t give anybody else rights. If Lisa wants to take the boys out of Atlanta, she has to get permission from Keith. She picks them up on the 1st and the 3rd weekend of every month. Those are her rights. Ed has NO rights.
In this situation, Keith is going to be the bigger person. Keith has the fastest growing syndicated radio show now in 42 markets. He has two television shows coming out. He performs in concerts. What is Ed doing? I hear him and Lisa say he played in the NFL for 7 years. Is that factually correct? He played for the Falcons for three years and he was cut from there, cut from Cincinnati, cut from Oakland. He was injured for three years. So did he play for seven years? Keith has been in the business for 21 years, but he’s been singing since he was a little boy. Keith doesn’t try to inflate his career or himself."
Rihanna hosted the Gucci gala while a few other celebs dropped by Guccied up and mink coat chic at last night's launch of Gucci’s Tattoo Heart Collection to Benefit UNICEF at Gucci’s 5th Avenue store in NY. MJB looked too fabulous as did Rihanna. The coat Rihanna was wearing is absolutely to die for dahling me so likey. Rihanna also attended UNICEF’s 2008 Snowflake Lighting, which sparks the beginning of gift-giving season at Grand Army Plaza.

Okay Saasy Muffins I found a few of the funniest videos of people dancing to Beyonce's Single Ladies. I know so many of you will really appreciate the humor. Damn I guess I am the only one in the world that hasn't learned the dance huh...only because I went to vote yesterday. I will learn it by next week though I pinky swear! If you like it then you should've put a ring on it! (wink)
