The Road To The White House: Pictures N Such

Above are pictures from several events on the road to the White House: Pictures N Such.
From Bottom to top: Teyanna Taylor/Angel Lola Love/Akon & Tracey Edmonds/Beyonce, Bruce Springstein, and Will I Am/Prezident Obama & Jamie Foxx/Prezident Barack Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama.


Well since err'body else is reporting this foolishness who am I not to inform my Sassy Muffins? Drum roll please.....(giggle giggle). In NBA gossip last weekend the Miami Herald reported a story revealing a whole lots of bedroom secrets that should have been kept between husband and wife divorce or not. But if a certain NBA hoopster is carrying a certain STD well I guess the truth shall set you free and the groupies too. Let me stop!!!! Here's the story via the Miami Herald you decide whether it's news you can use or not. Sweet Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!

"Heating up: Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade's divorce from wife Siohvaughn, his high school sweetheart. In legal papers, she alleges he abandoned his children, committed adultery, and infected her with an unspecified sexually transmitted disease. She wants the names of ''all of his sexual partners'' during their six-year marriage.

Dwyane petitioned for the divorce last May in Cook County, Ill. They wed in Chicago on May 18, 2002.

Dwyane's Windy City attorney, James Pritikin, issued a statement: ``These malicious allegations are absolutely false and we look forward to the opportunity to dispute them in court.''

Dwyane turns 27 on Saturday. He and Siohvaughn, 27, have two boys, Zaire, a first-grader who will be 7 next month, and Zion, 1. Siohvaughn moved back to Chicago with the kids last year.
Dwyane's Heat salary is $14,410,581, according to published reports. He hauls in millions more from major endorsements such as Gatorade and Converse. He has a dozen vehicles, including four Cadillacs, four Mercedes-Benzes and a Maybach, court papers say.

The All-Star has been romantically linked to actress Gabrielle Union, 36, once married to former Jacksonville Jaguar Chris Howard.

From Siohvaughn's pleading: ``Dwyane has dissipated substantial sums of marital property including . . . buying his mother a $2 million church; placing substantial sums of money in an account with another woman; providing numerous friends and family members with unfettered access to accounts with hundreds of thousands of dollars of marital funds from which they made substantial withdrawals . . .''

Meanwhile, she says, he cut her off financially.

Dwyane, named a ''Father of the Year'' in 2007 by the National Father's Day Committee, has gone ''months'' without seeing his boys, Siohvaughn says. His ''failure to spend time with them . . . has resulted in the children at times being afraid of him; in fact, Zion . . . does not recognize or know Dwyane.'' She wants sole custody, and support.

She also says she has suffered ''grievous physical, emotional and mental injury'' from the STD, diagnosed in the fall of '07. (The infection is not HIV or a ''killer thing,'' sources say.) Dwyane and his ''paramour or paramours'' are liable, she alleges.

'Dwyane must disclose the identity of all of his sexual partners during the parties' marriage,'' says her counter-petition, prepared by attorney Michael J. Berger of Chicago. Siohvaughn has another Chicago lawyer, Dorene Marcus.

Says Pritikin: ``It is sad that an obviously angry and bitter woman will go to any lengths to publicly damage Mr. Wade.''

Siohvaughn speaks the truth, Marcus insists. ''A person's public persona does not necessarily reflect his behavior in private,'' Marcus adds. ``Mrs. Wade is prepared to prove everything she alleges. And, medical records don't lie.''

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an African American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the American civil rights movement. His main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States and he is frequently referenced as a human rights icon today.

A Baptist minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, serving as its first president.

King's efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. There, he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history.

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and opposing the Vietnam War, both from a religious perspective.

King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. national holiday in 1986.

Real Houswives of Atlanta: DESHAWN SNOW-DROPPED!

In Real Housewives of Atlanta news you can surely use Deshawn Snow aka NBA hoopster Eric Snow’s wife has indeed confirmed to Essence.com that she was dropped from the cast! Well damn! Who would have thought that was going to happen?! Not a shock at all right? She wasn’t one of my favorites because she always reminded me of an urban Jessica Simpson. Although most thought she blended in and balanced the show. I personally thought although she was humble most of the time she was EXTRA at times too. There have been bogus rumors circulating around Usher’s wife, Tameka Raymond, joining the Georgia peaches, however she did say she was flattered for the invite, but no thanks! Whateva Meek Meek! Anywho’s the excerpt from Essence.com is below outlining the conversation that transpired between Deshawn and Bravo! I will miss Deshawn, but girl bye! Maybe now she can run her estate properly and hire the right housekeeping staff to tend to her and her family.

ESSENCE.COM: We hear that you are no longer returning to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Is that true?
DESHAWN SHOW: Yes, one of the producers called me yesterday and said that they wouldn't take my option.

ESSENCE.COM: What reason did they give for not inviting you back for the second season?SNOW: [One of the producers] called and said that I was "too human for a circus show" and that because the show did so well, they are about to pump up the drama and they didn't think that I would fit in. He gave me an example, saying that during the reunion when I found out what a few of the other ladies said about me, they were expecting me to say more, but I'm not the type to go "television" and start acting crazy because somebody's talking about me. I'm fine with the decision. It wasn't my decision. They let me go and there are no hard feelings. I am thankful for the opportunity.

ESSENCE.COM: So were you at all shocked by the decision?
SNOW: I didn't see it coming. I was shocked because I just talked to them in December about the new season. It's not like they came to me and gave me an option by saying, "We're going to take a new direction and we want to know if you could be more like this." I was a little hurt, but I just look at it like I am what I am. [My personality] didn't seem to be a problem before, but I suppose the show took a different direction and they no longer see me as the right fit. If you look at all the other housewives, they are all different. I believe God moves people out of your way. It's about God having his hand upon you and doing things for you. I'm not judging my situation. I look at the show as just a shutter-glimpse of what God has in store for me. I enjoyed being on the show and hanging with the girls. At the end of the day, I was the same person throughout the show. I never changed. I was authentic and true to myself and I can't control what other people do.

ESSENCE.COM: There are rumors that Tameka Foster might replace you. Is that true?SNOW: Yes, I heard that, but I don't know. I wouldn't say that they are replacing me because they didn't think I was real enough or too real enough for the show, so I doubt they are going to bring in someone who has a similar personality as mine.

NOTORIOUS Movie Premiere

The Notorious movie premiere was held last week in NYC and here are a few of the pictures! (forgive me babies because I have been mentally drained so my updates have been super slow...trust I will make it up to you, kisses).

Jamal Woolard & Naturi Naughton

Angela & Courtney Vance

Faith Evans

Cassie (not to far behind Diddy) Mamma Wallace & Jay Z

Mama Wallace and Mary J.

Life Of The Jet Setter...Diggy has Swag!

Hey Sassy Muffins Diggy Simmons has a new blog, which I think is such a cute and fly idea. He will focus on all things fashion, music, and art like. The name of the blog is primo fabulous, Life Of The Jet Setter! How cute is that? I know right!!!!! Well I'll be checking on Rev Run's son from time to time! For those of you who are curious the link is below! Let's support Diggy because who knows maybe he can show your girl a thing or two about blogging!!! (giggle giggle)

Lil Kim:Beefing with Faith & Mama Wallace

Lil Kim is beefing with Biggie’s mum, V. Wallace, and his baby moms R&B diva, Faith Evans! Lil Kim is reportedly extremely vexed concerning her likeness in the upcoming movie NOTORIOUS. Lil Kim has been quoted poppin off in Hip Hop weekly. And, Faith of course hears about the beef and responds via MTV. Oh my goodness people who really gives a shit?! And, ummm yeah I read Faith’s book and I really actually enjoyed it! I will also be checking out Notorious next weekend. So at the end of the day I really don’t think there really is a beef here folks! Could Lil Kim be reaching, jealous of Faith Evans after all these years, or upset at Mama Wallace because she is not as respected as she would like! Ummmm yeah did somebody forget to send her the memo that she was just his mistress?! At the end of the day (in my Frankie voice) may wives and mistresses never meet!

Lil Kim/Hip Hop Weekly:

“They were disrespecting me terrible in that script but the one that sticks out to me was in a scene allegedly when Ms. Wallace came to see one of Biggie’s shows for the first time and I was supposed to be so mad at him about something that I pulled my panties off on stage and mooned the crowd with my p—-. What the f—?! Come on, don’t you think that would’ve been in the history archives? They’re using Lil Kim to sensationalize their bulls— lying’-a– story. That was the last version of the script I saw, which somebody had snuck to me, ’cause people didn’t want me to see it…It’s crazy ’cause she and I lived together in Biggie’s house for almost eight months after Biggie died. On top of all that, out of the kindness of my heart and the love I had for Biggie, I share five percent of my publishing with Ms. Wallace; just out of love, making sure that if I ate, she and the kids ate. I’ve had enough and I’m about to expose them both. … I’ve been quiet for a long time,…I’m very disappointed in Faith. There’s nothing Faith or Ms. Wallace could do to stop me from reppin’ B.I.G. all day. I’m gonna always do that. … It’s time for Ms. Wallace to be exposed.”

Faith responded with the below comments via MTV:

“I try my best not to think about it…It’s kinda sad. I got four kids, and I definitely don’t have time for this type of sh–,…It’s just sad. I don’t know Kim’s story like that. The part of my life that she was a part of, that what was in my book. This movie is not relative to my book other than that there are certain things in there. This is not my movie. I didn’t write the script. Any characters in the film had to agree for their life rights to be in the movie. I don’t think I would have signed anything had I felt I was not portrayed properly. I think she had the opportunity to do that. I could be mistaken. I wasn’t there. It’s not like [the film's producers] are calling Faith to write something about somebody. It’s based on a book that I think she participated in as well I don’t know what to say. I think that beyond myself, Ms. Wallace or whoever else she wants to blame, everyone who was around Big at that time has had some things to say about [her relationship with Biggie] in order for Cheo to even write the book. He interviewed pretty much all of us. She’s sadly mistaken. I’m aware of what she has to say, and that’s fine. I don’t know what to say. God bless her. I don’t think there’s anything about me that I would be ashamed of that I haven’t already told people…I hope she found the closure she’s looking for.”

Necole Bitchie: Photo Drama & Bitchassness?

Celebrity blogger, Necole Bitchie, is being oh so hated on! Necole did a photo shoot with famed celebrity photographer, Derek Blanks…so she has the “alter ego” final picture on her site. Another blogger has pointed out that Necole’s pictures were lighter than she actually is because she is not happy in her skin. WTF?! All I can say is BITCHASSNESS!!!(Thank you Diddy) The pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I for one love her site and will continue to support her as well as Derek Blanks. Necolebitchie.com absolutely ROCKS from one blogger to another!

Sheree Whitfield: It Ain't Tricking If He Got It

Mirror Mirror on the wall who’s the prettiest and least educated gold digger of them all? According to AJC.Com and legal documents filed in Atlanta many may say Real Housewives of Atlanta bad girl, Sheree Whitfield may be at the top of the list. I don’t have any real words or bossy commentary for this here ish, however the article is below you decide! I ain’t saying she no gold digger, but she ain’t messing with no broke niggas!(singing in my Kanye West voice)
Girl buh-bye!!!

“Sheree Whitfield of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," is not happy with the money she's getting from ex-husband and former Falcons player Bob Whitfield. The lump sum of $775,000, child support, shares of Whitfield's retirement pension, nearly half of the marital property and $113,422 a year just isn't enough for her to stay in her $2.6 million home, her lawyers say. We ask: How is she expected to live the lifestyle she's used to under these trying conditions? She's appealing to the Georgia Supreme Court on January 12. So, we have to ask - and we know it's tough to choose just one - who is the biggest gold digger in the bunch?”

Keyshia Cole/Young Jeezy Who's Stalking Who?

Well hells to the no no! There were several articles that hit the internet last week so called claiming that Keyshia Cole is literally stalking Young Jeezy! I guess if rumors were to be believed one would really think that Keyshia is really jocking Young Jeezy! *side eye stare* Big ups to all my haters!!!!! Trust and believe Keyshia is not sweating no damn Young Jeezy! For what? Hell he ain’t the last man standing and that’s for damn sure! He gon’ mess around and have to beef with Frankie and then there really will be a man down and code 10 situation!
Don’t believe the hype folks!
