Wyclef Goes At Ms. Hill+Ursh Keeps The Wedding Going With Another Publicity Stunt

The publicity sluts arrived back in NY this morning and say the wedding is still on. They say the reason for postponement was a pregnancy problem scare. That chick does not look 5-7 months preggers (since the baby is due this fall and all). You aint got to lie Ursh...you aint got to lie. This is gettng worse than Britney/Paris/Lindsay coverage. But y'all know how tempting train wrecks are to watch....

UPDATE: YBF snitches who were at Asiate at the Mandarin Hotel late last night/early this morning tell me Ursh was spotted outside the Mandarin Hotel then around Madison and Park Ave. in NY. And he was staging this EXACT photo op. Apparently Usher had his photogs take pics of himself solo and some with Tameka so he could sell this fake story to the media. He also was seen getting into his own SUV to leave with his bodyguard Robert but WITHOUT Tameka.

Wyclef did an interview with Scratch magazine recently and he has some serious issues with Lauryn Hill. Here's an excerpt talking about why the Fugees reunion is taking all day:

So what's ultimately holding you guys back?
Lauryn is straight up the problem, bro. She wants to be a producer. Don't come telling us how to chop up beats so you can get credit for it.

What makes you think she would take the credit?
We did a remix [with] Lauryn for John Legend, for the record "How High". John Legend was saying our names. You know what she had [him] do? She was like, 'Take off Wyclef and Jerry's names. Because she wanted people to think that she was the one doing the beat…I'm a producer and I'm a beatmaker with my cousin
Jerry Wonder, and I'm a writer. She's a writer, a vocalist, [and] a great
[vocal] composer. And she's great at picking out samples. She got 20
billion samples but can't chop 'em up to save her life.

Get the rest of the interview here.

The Randomness:

  1. Interesting.
  2. Sad news about Robin Roberts from GMA. Hopefully she'll beat this disease as soon as possible.

Candid Fab & Foolishness

WTF is going on here Kim?:

Pic source: Celebrity Babylon

Apparently she's hopped on the Team Lindsay Hohan train and is helping sell "Leave Lindsay A Lohan" tees. She told sources she could relate since she did spend 10 months in the slammer herself. What, are we about to start a damn Cap'n Save A Ho campaign for EVERY chick who's being threatened with jail time? You need to be focused on why your chi chis look like they're melting out of that dress. That ish aint cute Kim....at all.

So Tameka has cleared up the rumors on why the wedding was canceled....by NOT clearing up the rumors. She really could have kept that lil "statement". Just whack...

Ms. Luckett has been out and about around the H:

She did some radio promo with KeKe Palmer and Omarion.

And she hit up an 80's themed party in a fab throwback fit:

Loves it.

Tyra B. is still in talks to move her show to the NYC and here's some pics of her taping in the middle of Times Square:

Hmmm...not sure if I'm feeling the dark Hefty bag look.

But you can't help but laugh at this chick.

French model and actress YBF chick Noémie Lenoir was spotted with her son in St. Tropez this weekend:

Loves her look and new haircut. She's also married to footballer (soccer player) Claude Makélélé for all my international YBF folks. And she has a role in the new Rush Hour 3 movie.

Here's some pics of celebs at their fitting for the Celebrity Catwalk Fashion Show going down in L.A. next month:

Kiko Ellsworth

My General Hospital fans know wassup. Too bad he's engaged...

Lisa Koffey from Wild 'N Out

Essence Atkins

Cute baby model Cameron Davis

The Inspire(RED) event went down last night at Mood in LA:

I'm just loving all of Mel B.'s post baby fabulousness right now.

Bow Wow's rumored chick Melody Thornton was there and I seriously thought she was rocking a jailbird outfit at first glance:

Ja Rule made an appearance.

That Chudney just tries so hard. Bless her heart...

Eve's new vid ft. Sean Paul for "Give It To Me" is out.

The Randomness:

  1. Star Jones has confirmed what we've known for years. Story
  2. Assie is still killing our ears with a new song called "Is It You" for a new movie she's in called Step Up 2. Wait...they made that movie a sequel? And they casted this chick for a dancer movie? Seriously?

The Double Saga Continues

Marsha A. and Amanda Diva at Friday night's concert in DC

So as y'all know, I hit up the Floetry REMIXED tour/concert here in DC this weekend. And after a lot of confusion popped off a few days ago about what happened to Natalie "The Floacist" and Amanda Diva joining in...y'all know I had to get the scoop. So I chit chatted it up backstage with the NEW Floetry and tried to get some things cleared up...but this is also very new to them as well. So basically, Marsha Ambrosius says she was unaware that the original duo had parted ways until she realized they hadn't spoken for several months and she read Natalie's myspace blog earlier this year. Natalie basically told her fans she was doing her own solo thing and that was that. A YBF fan even sent in a response from Natalie via myspace messaging when she asked what was up. Check it:

Hello Sweetheart...xx I appreciate your concern...I wasn't involved in the orginization of this tour and I overstand that it is misleading. I wont be there...Marsha is entitled to use the name if she so chooses, and she has. That is all I can share with you on this sister...xx Thank you for your support and loyalty...I do not take it for granted...xx Look out for SUPER HEROINE...that is how I shall be listed...xx If there are any changes I shall let everybody know right here...via bloggs and bulletins...xx Love...xx SH...xx

Interesting. So when I brought this up to Marsha...she cleared the air that there is no beef on her end saying "That's still my sister and I love her still." She explained that they "parted as grown women" and there were some issues of not getting along which made it difficult for Marsha to just do what she loved (singing) and difficult for others around them. How she hooked up with Amanda Diva was by happenstance and it all just worked out. Be sure to check out the YBF video channel for a clip of Natalie's explanation on their getting together. And by the way, Marsha was sure to state that she is "straight as can be" in response to the lesbian rumors.

Marsha also gave a long explanation of what exactly went down
on her myspace blog here. Basically...Marsha and Amanda ARE Floetry and their tour right now is called the Floetry Remixed tour. They said they have no control over how management chooses to promote the tour. Management used images of the original Floetry for promo purposes and some fans were upset when they got to the concert and realized the deal.

I will say that the show and sound is not exactly the same...but it's still pretty damn fab. Real talk. Floetry fans who know the deal going into the concert won't be disappointed.

This ish aint funny Tameka

I literally have a headache about this Ursh and Tameka ish. But of course...it's my job to report the latest developments. A source who is close enough to Ursh to know exactly what's going on has relayed some interesting info to YBF. Apparently it is indeed true that Momma Patton wasn't going to their wedding...but it wasn't only because of Tameka. It also had to do with her planning her own wedding and doing interviews she's slated for to get some publicity. Surprise surprise. And now Tameka has been "rushed" to the hospital and has been seen "holding her stomach". But my source says back when she was about 4 months preggers, the whole baby story fizzled THEN and they wouldn't be surprised if there was a miscarriage story to come out in days to come. Wow. And yes, I'm still sticking by my exclusive story from months ago that the baby is/was not Ursh's. Folks everywhere doubted me at first but I see folks hopping on the bandwagon now.

Apparently all the tent setups and wedding gear outside of L.A. Reid's home (it allegedly wasn't even his home in the pics floating around with the wedding setup but it was Russell and Kiki's) were all staged anyway. Basically this is a whole well paid for stage play gone terribly out of control. Usher supposedly does have love for Tameka, but their agreement to do a wedding publicity stunt has gone to Tameka's head and everything has spun out of control. And according to my source, it all started with her leaking the story HERSELF about her ex con activities thanks to her publicity cravings. Ursh already knew about it but the leak was not part of the plan. So thanks to all the last minute drama (moms being upset, leaks, and Tameka's bad attitude), the wedding was had to be called off. Just...damn. Paid jumpoffs need to understand their roles....

Because Black Women Look Like Oompa Loompas?

So as if the one chick Sally Kirkland dressing up in black face on Simple Life a while back wasn't enough....Herparis and Stickole Ritchie decided to dress up in black face to play "Black women" in a play or some ish during the episode last night.

WTF? AT LEAST get a makeup artist who doesn't make you look like you just got a pink slip at Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

I mean seriously...was this supposed to be comical. It's just hard for me to find this funny after
Paris made a whole video of racist remarks and dropping the "N word" not too long ago. Anyways...the whole Simple Life series got yanked off the E! network the other day. Somebody has some sense. Speak on it fab ones....

Moving On...

YBF chick Gabby went and found a new chick to party it up with:

Yep. Fellow YBF chick Nia Long.

They're both looking pretty fab.

Some Wu-Tang folks performed at the 2007 Rock the Bells Festival series in NY:

I see Method Man is still preserving his sexy.

Ghostface Killah and RZA performed too:

I've given up on the chance for a Wu-Tang reunion.

Mos Def was there. I wonder if him and his wife are still going strong. I hear not all is good with that...

Talib performed.

And so did Flav and Chuck D:

Fun times.

Rev. Run, his brother, and Tichina Arnold hit up In Style's Super Saturday event in The Hamptons:

Cute look...especially the Chanel sandals.

Oh really Taye? Funny how folks got pissy with me when I speculated a long time ago something wasn't right with him and his wifey's marriage. TMZ has photos of him partaking in some unmarried-like behavior while in Vegas this weekend. Interesting...

Look who's rocking the cover of VIBE:

“For the first time in VIBE’s 14-year history, a political figure graces
our cover,” says editor-in-chief Danyel Smith in her Editor’s Letter. “It’s time.” In the exclusive interview — by American Book Award-winning author Jeff Chang — Senator Obama and those closest to him open up about personal sacrifice, his teen years in Hawaii, the Don Imus backlash against hip hop, and being “black enough.” The two cover images were photographed exclusively for the September JUICE issue of VIBE by renowned lensman Terry Richardson. Pick up your copy on August 14.

Me likey.

And Shaq was spotted leaving Area nightclub in L.A.:

*looking for an address to send some Vaseline CoCoa Butter formula to* I'm sure they had some fun times though.

And here's a shot of Ashanti from her new movie Resident Evil 3:


The Randomness:

  1. Diddy got pushed to the B-List real quick. Rejection's a b*tch. Story

  2. Ursh is going back home to Momma Patton to kiss and makeup says The Daily News.

Keep it fabulous peoples!
