Rihanna just released the cover photo to her next project LOUD on shelves November 16. The first single is “Only Girl (In the World)” is already at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.


Last night, Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton celebrated her birthday at Greenhouse in NYC while Drake celebrated his concert afterparty there as well....hence all the celebs in the house.

Cute princess look

Rihanna, Roc Nation's J. Cole and Trey Songz came through.

Fabolous was also there.


Guess that little spill in Singapore took a big toll on Mimi.

She was spotted rolling through Los Angeles International Airport in a wheelchair after arriving back in the States.

"Mariah twisted her ankle in Singapore and should have packed more sensible shoes, but she doesn't have any," her rep, Cindi Berger, tells E! News about why the pop singer wasn't walking. "I'm sending her a pair of flats today."

Carey also managed to laugh off the fall.

"TY SO much to my fans in Singapore!!! Yeah, several hectic moments, (lol!) but I tried to swirl them into festive!" she Tweeted that same day.


Laila Ali is expecting

"I am pregnant again! I'm three months, and I'm so excited, my family is excited. I'm hoping it's a girl this time!"

Due in early April 2011, this will be the second child together for Ali, 32, and husband Curtis Conway, 39, who married in July 2007. Their first child, son Curtis Jr., is 2.

Laila says her father, boxing legend Muhammad Ali, is excited about becoming a grandfather again.

"My dad is an excellent grandfather," she says. "He loves kids. He loves to kiss them to death."

A former world-class boxer herself, Ali admits it's a challenge to maintain an exercise regime during pregnancy.

"I've noticed I'm putting on weight faster this time, I started showing sooner," she says. "Staying fit is a challenge, even if you are a former world-class athlete such as myself, because you just don't have the energy that you used to have. Also, I have to hold myself back because I want to work harder than I'm able to."

When it comes to nutrition, "Pregnancy isn't 'I can eat whatever I want,' because you have to remember you're going to be stuck with a lot of that weight afterwards that you need to try to get off. So I don't recommend 'grubbing,'" she says, admitting she succumbs to the occasional pregnancy craving.

"I have cravings all the time, even when I'm not pregnant," Ali says. "I made a strawberry shortcake last night." And? "It was great."


It's just a normal day for B as she crashed her in-laws' block party. She hit West Orange, New Jersey this week to visit Jay-Z's mom. And she decided to join in the dancing and partying with the neighbors at their block party. It was all caught on tape, and the neighbors loved it:


Drake is facing some legal troubles. More money, more problems. Fans claim his bodyguard assaulted them when they attempted to speak the rapper.

The third man to file a lawsuit against Bishop Eddie Long has spoken out.

Bed bugs aren’t the only pest invading mid-Atlantic states this year: stink bugs are now posing a serious problem, causing damage to fruit and vegetable crops that has reached critical levels, the New York Times reported on Sunday. WTF AMERICA???

Although they don’t bite, the brown marmorated stink bugs (Halyomorpha halys) are a hassle for homeowners — particularly if they are stepped upon, causing the emission of a strong skunk-like odor.

However, stink bugs pose no known health dangers, and even the fruit they invade is edible once the hardened parts are removed. “Marmorated” refers to their marbled appearance.

Effective stink bug control begins with some do-it-yourself prevention, says Ehrlich Pest Control’s Kristin Golden Mancuso. As a home owner you can do a number of things to prevent stink bugs, such as:

  • seal holes in exterior walls larger than the diameter of a pencil
  • check door and window frames for holes
  • ensure that door sweeps, doors and windows are tight-fitting and
  • be sure your window screens fit tightly

Both live and dead stink bugs can be removed with a vacuum cleaner, however the vacuum may smell like stink bugs for a period of time. Some people prefer to sweep the stink bugs up using a broom and dust pan and will then discard them in an outdoor trash receptacle.

Royal Pest Management also says that prevention is most important and give detailed tips to make sure the smelly bugs don’t get in:

  • Stink bugs are looking for a place to "overwinter" (hibernate). They are attracted to the brightest, most reflective side of the home (usually the south side) and then look for a way in for a cold/dark place to shut down and survive the winter. Seal all cracks and crevices on the sunny side of your home, especially.
  • Stink bugs feed in trees in the summer and like leafy plants and tomato plants. Cut back the leafy plants so they don’t touch your house. Keep them at least a foot to 18 inches from the house. If you have a vegetable garden near your home (less than 20 feet), especially tomatoes, pull them out.


So let me get this straight....when it comes to the Jackson reality show Jermaine was a baller. Now when it comes to his kids he's broke???? Not you Jermaine...TMZ reports that

Jermaine just filed new child support papers in L.A. County Superior Court claiming that he's expected to pay $3,000 a month in child support for sons Jaafar and Jermajesty ... even though his average monthly income for the last year has been under $1,100.

Jermaine is asking the judge to slash support payment to $215 a month.

According to the docs, Jermaine made a onetime appearance on "Big Brother" back in 2007, raking in a handsome $450,000 for his troubles -- but since then, Jermaine claims his business has floundered.

Jermaine claims his baby mama Alejandra not only earns more than him ... but she gets a free ride along with his kids at the Jackson compound, thanks to Katherine's generosity. Katherine has asked Alejandra to move her family into a nearly Jackson condo but Alejandra has refused and Katherine won't put her foot down.


Trey Songz gets a little fancy with Angela Yee over at Shade 45

GV Says: "The internet ain't sh*t." SMH.....Lets be clear. The internet can make you and break. Many of a tears have your celebrity friends shed behind a post on the net. Don't get beside yourself young man.


Rihanna was spotted out on the Lower East Side NYC set of her new video for "What's My Name".

If Mariah isn't pregnant something is really wrong with her diet. She took a little tumble while in Singapore this weekend.


Ne-yo is gracing the latest issue of Jet.

Speaking of Ne-yo, last week he hit up a private cocktail party that Denise Rich threw at her Fifth Ave. apartment for his Compound Foundation. He told NY Daily News reporters, "I'm learning that pregnant women like to cry a lot ... and yell for no reason whatsoever." He knows this because he has a baby girl due in January with Monyetta Shaw.

He added that he knows that when such emotional tidal shifts occur, "you just have to let that happen," he said with a laugh. "If it's ice cream at 3 o'clock in the morning, you have to get up and go get her the ice cream."

GV Says: That's what's up Ne-yo.


So Drake seems to have put aside his hurt feelings. “I just did this great song with Rihanna so I hope we get to shoot a video for that too. I’m really excited about that song.”

Ohhh...and he added this:

In a profile in Sunday's New York Times, the Toronto MC said he was "a pawn" to Rihanna. Now, his revealing remarks about their long-rumored fling are making headlines.

"That's a moment that I've been eager, sort of, to explain," he told MTV News. "I feel like when people write about it or try to take an excerpt from me describing it, it's gonna sound negative. And in no way was it negative. I'm at one of the greatest places in my life — I'm on top of the world. I'm extremely confident, so it's very rare that anybody, let alone a woman that I like, makes me feel nervous or makes me feel small.

"She's just such an overwhelming and incredible person," Drake continued. "And such a talented person and someone that I was like, 'I can't believe I'm here talking to this individual,' that she just gave me that feeling like when I was 17 years old trying to take Nikki Ramos, this girl from Toronto, out on a date and she never wanted to go with me. She never would go; she would have a million excuses why she couldn't talk to me. That's how [Rihanna] made me feel, she made me feel small; she made me feel nervous. It just put me back to the Acura in Toronto, feeling like Aubrey Graham, not Drake."

The two stars caused quite a stir last year when New York City tabloids reported the pair were spotted getting cozy at an upscale Manhattan bowling alley. Drake denied the talk, appearing on local radio station Hot 97 to say he and Rihanna were just friends.

But on his debut, Thank Me Later, he addresses the topic on opening track "Fireworks," clearing the air and looking back on the moment — and what could have been.

"I could tell it wasn't love/ I just thought you f---ed with me/ Who could have predicted/ Lucky Strike would have you stuck with me," Drake spits in the second verse. "Damn, I kept my wits about me, luckily/ What happened between us that night it always seems to trouble me/ Now all of a sudden, these gossip rags want to cover me/ And you making it seem like it happened that way because of me."

Still, in spite of his lyrics, Drake isn't one to kiss and tell. When asked what it was like to plant one on Rihanna, the rapper was coy.

"I don't know what you're talking about," he smiled and looked away.


Finally Eddie and his lacefront speaks.

"I've been accused, I'm under attack. I want you to know, as I said earlier, that I am not a perfect man," the revered pastor cryptically told a cheering crowd of thousands at his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. "But this is the thing, I'm going to fight."

"There have been allegations and attacks made on me," he told the crowd, who responded with thunderous applause. "I have never in my life portrayed myself as a perfect man. But I am not the man that's being portrayed on the television. That's not me. That is not me.”

Long's remarks seemed far more tame than a statement released last week, in which he called the accusations "false."

"I am anxious to respond directly to these false allegations and I will do so," the statement read. "However, my lawyers have counseled patience at this time. But let me be clear; the charges against me and New Birth are false. I have devoted my life to helping others and these false allegations hurt me deeply."

GV Says: One word....WHY??? Why the lacefront wig?

Diddy is always trying to get a way in on what's hot. This time its Jersey Shore.

After a Fashion's Night Out event on Sept. 10 in New York, Diddy reportedly had his eyes set on the sweetheart of "Jersey Shore," Sammi Giancola.

Life & Style’s Scene Queens spotted Sammi and her friends outside of the event when Diddy pulled up to the curb and reportedly called out to Sammi, "I love Jersey Shore. I've been thinking about you."

The Scene Queens say that Sammi ignored him, but Diddy didn't give up. "He knew one of the girls Sammi was with," a friend of Sammi's told Scene Queens. "He was texting her friend, begging for Sammi's number."


SMH...Lyfe Jennings is back in jail

After being arrested in October of 2008, for an altercation with the mother of his child, Joy Bounds, he will head back to jail to serve a 3.5 yr sentence. He was charged with a DUI test refusal, criminal trespassing, discharging a weapon near a street, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer. He was later released from jail on a $50,000 bond.

Here's the text of his final Twitter post:

This will be my last post. To everyone who gave me a chance I am forever in your debt. I have had a fabulous career because of you. All I can say in parting is that I have been honest with yaw. I didn't sugarcoat a word didn't hold back a single sylible of my life from yaw. I've lived a hundred lives in these 6 yrs so I not only won't, i don't have the right to complain. I would like to think that I've changed lives by changing my own, tho I can't be sure. But one thing I am sure of is God gives and takes away in measure. He is fair, just and forever. Amen from aman... Smile, its contageous:)

Lyfe was on a 16 show tour across the U.S. promoting his album.

Rumor has it that Def Jam exec may be on his way out...

After Kevin Liles was "let go" last year from Atlantic, rumor had it that Chairman and CEO of Island Def Jam Music Group L.A. Reid would be next. Looks like there's some smoke coming from that fire as we hear that LA just picked up his walking papers this week.

LA is responsible for signing Mariah Carey, Pink, Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Toni Braxton, TLC, Usher, Ciara, and OutKast.


Fanny is preparing to go on tour with Atlanta housewife Kandi and singer Eric Benet. The tour begins November 4 in Richmond, VA. Kandi tweeted last night, "I'm going on tour with my girl Fantasia in November! It’s gonna be so fun."

GV Says: I can't tell if this is a good thing or a bad thing.


This is not good...

Two Georgia men have filed a lawsuit claiming that prominent Atlanta, Georgia, pastor Eddie Long coerced them into sex.

The suits, filed Tuesday in DeKalb County, Georgia, allege that Long used his position as a spiritual authority and bishop to coerce young male members and employees of his New Birth Missionary Baptist Church into sex.

"Defendant Long has a pattern and practice of singling out a select group of young male church members and using his authority as Bishop over them to ultimately bring them to a point of engaging in a sexual relationship," the suits allege.

Long is considered one of the nation's top black preachers. His church has more 25,000 members, according to the suit, and was the site of Coretta Scott King's 2006 funeral, attended by then-President George W. Bush and three previous presidents.


Well SNL seems to be added to the long list of people who have forgiven Kanye West. The rapper will be the next musical gueest on the late night sketch comedy show on October 2nd, joining host Bryan Cranston from “Breaking Bad.”

In other 'Ye news, word has it that he and 50 Cent may go on a European tour.

Gabourey Sidibe was one of four young actresses to appear on four separate covers of Elle magazine's 25th anniversary issue. However, several media outlets accused Elle of digitally lightening her skin.

According to Elle, 'nothing out of the ordinary was done' to the cover images.

"We have four separate covers this month and Gabby's cover was not retouched any more or less than the others. We had 25 cover-worthy subjects in our portfolio and we chose Gabby because of who she is. We shot this as a story of exuberant young women changing the world. If you take a look at the portfolio, each of the women were shot in different ways and for different reasons."

Foxy Brown's brother, Gavin "Pretty Boy" Marchand, pleaded not guilty to felony identity theft charges Thursday - and was then cuffed on new criminal charges.

"They're re-arresting him for grand larceny," Herman Wun, Marchand's surprised lawyer, said outside a Manhattan Supreme courtroom as his client was taken into custody by burly, plain-clothed detectives.

Marchand, 35, who has dabbled on stage as his sister's sidekick, was arrested in August for a shopping spree with a series of allegedly fake credit cards.

Details of the new case were unclear, and Wun said he had not been told his client would be arrested - and knew little about the new case.

One of Marchand's pals, Warren David, was also re-arrested, and the two will be arraigned Thursday night or Friday on the new charges.

In the original case, Gavin and three pals were busted for trying to purchase French luxury goods at Hermes, an upper East Side boutique, with bogus plastic on Aug. 7.

"On a plea to the charge, we're recommending 3 1/2 to 7 years in jail," Assistant District Attorney Toni Mardirossian told a judge.

She said Marchand and one of his co-defendants, Derwin Benoit, have prior felony convictions, she said.

Gavin was busted in August when a sales person at Hermes on Madison Ave. quickly recognized the supposed American Express corporate card was fake.

Something about the front of the card and the magnetic strip were unusual, court documents show.

After David, 31, tried to use the bogus Amex card, Marchand handed over a phony MasterCard, according to court documents. The clerk held that card under a black light, showing that one wasn't real either.

They didn't stop there. Warren allegedly pulled out a second Amex card, which worked, and bought $7,882.55 worth of merchandise.

Two other men, Ryan Campbell, 32, and Benoit, 34, were charged in connection with the plastic shopping spree.

The four men, with Benoit at the wheel, were nabbed by cops after they made a 90-mph getaway attempt in a car littered with credit cards and receipts, according to court records.

GV Says: Wow...SMH. Is this what happens when the checks stop coming.


What the 'H' Foxy Brown???? So she hit up the the Incubator fashion today and performed.

GV Says: So I'm not knocking the hustle, I'm just saying....the gut. Dear Foxy, you are no longer a young girl whose metabolism is on high. You are now a grown woman which means you have to work out and eat right.

Jay-Z and Eminem took over New York Monday and Tuesday night as they performed the first concert at the new Yankee Stadium. The crowd was sold-out crowd with surprise appearances from Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Swizz Beatz.

On closing night, Eminem brought the crowd to its feet by bringing out 50 Cent, who then brought out G-Unit's Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo with him. The trio sported glow-in-the-dark gear as the lights cut out during 50's performance of "I Get Money."

The show was smooth, but not without any hiccups. While Drake delivered "Light Up" with Jay-Z; minutes later, he stumbled through his and Nicki Minaj's "Up All Night." Hov told the crowd during his final song that he may have to offer the Young Money rapper a "free verse" to make up for messing up his sound.


After months of speculation, a rep for Penelope Cruz has revealed that the actress is in fact expecting.

"Penelope is 4½-months pregnant," reps for Cruz and husband Javier Bardem confirm to

Recent photos of Cruz sporting a baby bump on the set of her upcoming movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," added fuel to the rumor mill that the Academy Award winning actress has a baby on board.

Cruz, 36, quietly tied the knot with Spanish actor Javier Bardem, 41, in the Bahamas two months ago. The two first met on the set of their 1992 film "Jamon, Jamon."

So maybe it's back on. Insiders are revealing that Idol may perhaps be going with J.Lo after all.

Final contracts are currently being signed by Lopez — plus Randy Jackson and fellow newcomer Steven Tyler, with an official announcement expected in early October, before auditions begin for the new season.

After a long negotiation process, "it ended up working out and they have a good agreement," the source reveals.


So some producer is about to Mimi's personal life out there.

Mariah Carey will be the subject of a tell-all book, when producer Da Mizza releases Guilty By Association, a new book detailing his love affair with the superstar singer.
Da Mizza, born Damion Young, claims that he was Mariah's producer as well as her live-in-boyfriend, when he worked in radio as an executive at L.A.'s Power 106. Additionally, as a producer, Da Mizza has sold over 30 million records, by co-produced or worked with artists like Dr. Dre, Michael Jackson, Hootie & The Blowfish, Eric Burdon and others.
According to Da Mizza, who produced Mariah's hit singles "Crybaby," "Irresistible" and "I Still Believe," the book will reveal details about "one of the industry's most passionate love affair."
“It’s the truth,” Damizza said in a statement. “When it comes to the music industry I know how deep the rabbit hole goes ... and I’m taking fans along for the ride. But there’s a lot more to my story than introducing Mariah to Eminem."
According to Da Mizza, Mariah's attorney's served him with a cease-and-desist request to block the release of the book, which also details the exploits of other music industry figures the producer has encountered.
"It’s the truth of why Dr. Dre’s “Detox” has been in limbo for more than a decade ... it’s how Jay-Z became huge enough to run Def-Jam Records ... it’s how I salvaged Janet Jackson’s relationship with radio programmers all over the world. I’m letting loose on how records are made, promoted, leaked, paid off, corrupted and careers and lives made and destroyed at the whims of ego and corporate corruption. I was there.”
GV Says: Da Mizza needs to get a life. Stop eating off these people and get your own business.


After much Twitter fuss, the Black Eyed Peas front man defended his fashion sense.

"1st. just because I where (sic) all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn't be looked at as racial," he tweeted. "Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything."

Television host Toure also took exception to's move.

" in blackface. Really? If @MTVJ was real she'd talk about in blackface pissing off lots of Black people," he said.
GV Says: I don't think this was racial...just wack taste.

Celebs stepped on the white carpet last night at the VMAs

Ciara was there. She looks great all though I'm not sure what's going on with her career.

Drake had a real classy swag through out the night. I love that he respects the moment and doesn't try to act an ass like many young artists tend to do.


Usher had interesting mix of chic meets urban wear

Clad in an Alexander McQueen gown, Lady Gaga arrived wearing a golden, crown-like topper on her head. Too much as usual. She couldn't even walk in these extravagant gowns. and Nicki Minaj. For some reason the Black Eyed Peas bandleader was clad in black and fans on twitter no likey.

Actress Rosario Dawson

ANTM Eva Marcille

I don't know how many of you watch the Hills, but Audrina Patridge was one of my fav looks so I had to post. She was decked in a platinum sequined Isaac Mizrahi minidress and blinged-out accessories, including Jacob & Company jewelry, Balmain rhinestone sandals and Judith Leiber belts. She looked simple, young and fresh.


Nicki Minaj performed during the pre-show. Admittedly, I was multitasking while viewing it. I mostly just saw a bunch of booty popping though.

Sorry Nicki fans, I don’t knock her hustle but when I see her all I see is Lil Kim. The way to stop that is to simply stop jacking her style.

Eminen opened with a surprise performance from Rihanna. Not my favorite RiRi look but she takes chances and that counts for something. She keeps things interesting.

Usher had a huge performance full of lights and dancers.

He did his thing..and after slow record sales and a lot of personal drama he needed this. Hopefully this will bring the attention back to his talent and off of his personal life.

Drake brought out enough swag to bring the old Mary back. It was a nice classy performance

And finally the man we all waited for. "Let's have a toast for the douche bags, Let's have a toast for the assholes....." After all the hoopla from last year's awards he didn't disappoint. He kept it simple and incredibly interesting..interesting song choice, he did his own music, the dancers were interesting. It was so simple people were waiting on the edge of their chairs for something to pop off. I enjoyed it and after a year, we need to let that old Taylor Swift -ish go.

Speaking of Taylor...she performed. Apparently, the song was about last year’s incident concerning Kanye West. Admittedly I'll have to see that again because I have no idea what the song was about. I couldn't tell if she was forgiving him or jabbing him.

Check out new cover for Rihanna's latest single - Only Girl. It's actually been getting good feedback.


That's what's up....

Matt was arrested in Sacramento, CA around 4:16PM yesterday after a domestic violence situation at his home went down. Cops arrived on the scene after an "incomplete 911 call" was placed. Both parties--Matt and the "mystery woman"--had visible injuries. Matt was charged with suspicion of domestic violence AND violent obstruction of the use of a telephone line.

Matt took to twitter and the News to claim his innocence after posting his $50,000 bond around 9:15pm last night:

"I was the victim but still got arrested."

The report also states that Barnes also texted May, "U know any domestic violence situation 9 outa 10 times the man gets arrested. That's the case here I was the victim but still got arrested. No matter what I say people are gonna think what they want..."

Barnes also posted the following on his Twitter page, ""DON'T LET YOUR EARS WITNESS, WHAT YOUR EYES DIDN'T SEE!!!"


Willow Smith, 9, has signed a record deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation record label -- and her debut hip-hop single "Whip My Hair" has already been viewed over 100,000 times on YouTube just a day after its release.

In a radio interview today with Ryan Seacrest, Jay-Z said that little Willow is destined for superstardom -- and he even compared her to Michael Jackson.

"I heard the record first before I knew that it was recorded by a nine year old and I was like, man that record's a smash," Jay-Z said. "I believe in superstars. I believe in big records and in superstars and I think [Willow] has both."

"She has a child's innocence but she has a clear vision of who she is and who she wants to be," he continued. "I can only imagine that's how Mike [Michael Jackson] was as a young kid, he knew exactly what he wanted."

The NY Daily News reports that Lady Gaga was hospitalized 6 times in a year for dangerous bouts with diets

According to, Gaga's tour manager, David Ciemny, claimed that while on tour she would scarf down unhealthy food and then stop eating for weeks to fit into her famous costumes.

At one point, she reportedly lost 20 pounds between fittings.

"The pressure on her to lose weight was very high," Wendy Starland, who helped discover Gaga, is quoted as saying, according to

Earlier this year, the New York native told London’s Daily Telegraph she was mocked for her size while at school.

"I had a very big nose, very curly brown hair and I was overweight," Gaga told the London newspaper. "I got made fun of.”

Rumors of a serious illness reached a fever pitch earlier this year after the singer cancelled two gigs and appeared to collapse on stage during a gig in New Zealand.

Though Gaga said her jet lag was to blame for the collapse, she later suggested to London's Times that she may have the autoimmune disease lupus – typical symptoms include breathing problems, heart palpitations and extreme fatigue.

In the same interview, the singer denied she had an eating disorder but admitted she took prescription medication to control her thoughts.


Kanye writes a song for Taylor ...

"I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it," he said on his Twitter Saturday morning. "If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her."

Perhaps a sly nod to her pop anthem, "You're Not Sorry," which was released on her 2008 album Fearless?

Nearly a year since he first apologized to Swift, the hip-hop artist is still offering up I'm sorries, calling her "justa lil girl with dreams like the rest of us" on his Twitter.

"She deserves the apology more than anyone," he Tweeted, before thanking the creators of Twitter for making a public platform for expression. "We're both artist[s] and the media and managers are trying to get between us. Everyone wants to capitalize off this [in] some way."

GV Says: In the same vein of Mashonda....LET IT GO ALREADY!!!! No his outburst wasn't right but it's been a year already. He should have addressed this at the time.


Mashonda is still talking.....OMG!!!!!!!

S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her “mommy”. How do you know that she said that?
Mashonda: My son told me.
S2S: And you told her that is not going to happen?
Mashonda: Yeah. I sent her an email and asked her to please respect what I am to him and it’s not right for her to think that is okay. She never replied. She doesn’t reply to me. She has never given me that respect.
S2S: What does Swizz say?
Mashonda: He said okay, he would stop it. He wouldn’t let her do it.
S2S: That would be kind of confusing for the child.
Mashonda: Oh, it is. It is so unfair to the child. I have been in contact with the little girl's mother (the woman in England who has Swizz’s baby). She’s a young girl. She’s a spiritual girl. She apologized to me… I don’t even judge her. I can’t. She’s totally different than the other one. This other one knew. Alicia knew about me 100 percent. Swizz introduced me at prior events. They were signed to the same record company. She knew. And I emailed her and asked her to stop doing what she was doing and she disregarded me. Just like she disregarded me when I asked her to not have my son thinking it was okay to call her “umi.” You’re not his umi. You just met my son.
S2S: “Umi” is like “mommy”?
Mashonda: “Umi” means “mommy” in Arabic. I’m like no. And then after I spoke to the lady in London, she told me that she tried to get her daughter to call her “umi” as well.
S2S: She’s met the lady in London?
Mashonda: Yes. I’m glad she’s having her own child now because now she will have someone to call her “umi”.
S2S: Wow.
Mashonda: Like, if you want to be a stepmother, that’s great. Be a stepmother. But don’t think that it’s okay to make a kid call you “umi” or “mommy.”

GV Says: I'm sorry guys, but I AM OVER MASHONDA!!!! Get over it already! This is nothing new. Both women and men have dealt with this for years so I'm perplexed why she can't drop it. I'm so sorry this happened in her marriage - and yes I've been married. But you've got to learn how to be a bigger woman and move on. This is simply not healthy and it's old. At this point I'm no longer looking at Alicia, but wondering why Mashonda is still going on and on about it. And I don't blame Alicia for not responding...for what???? So you can print it off and show the world like you're doing now. This is so disgusting to me.....
