During an interview, Tamera revealed that she have always considered marrying a black man while she was growing up.  She said:

“Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man. But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open. I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with.”

Kandi and Todd Kandi and Todd

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star Kandi Burruss and her fiancé Todd tied the knot in Atlanta.  The wonderful wedding ceremony was attended by their family and friends.  Despite the fact that Kandi’s mother did not hold up the wedding but after the ceremony she had some things to say.

When Kandi’s mother was asked why she has no objections to the wedding, she revealed:

“I had no reason to bite my tongue. I’m not gonna be the one to stop her from jumping into the fire. I tried, I did all that ahead of time. Too late for me to pull out of it then, not gonna make a fool outta myself!”

She further added:

“Long as she’s happy, that’s the one that has to be happy. Doesn’t make no difference if I’m happy or not, she’s the one that has to live with him. I did everything I could do. If she’s jumping in the river with sharks, she’s gonna get chewed up.”

“It’s not about me, whether I’m right or wrong. People show you their best when you’re dating them, so if she’s seeing the best now, the worst is yet to come.”

“I can’t wait till you see the wedding pictures … to see how beautiful I was. [<----- face palm]”

Mama Joyce also revealed that Todd only signed the prenup just a day before the wedding.  She said:

“I got a little pissed at the bridegroom the night before this wedding. He kind of held up on signing the prenup and didn’t come to the rehearsal dinner because he didn’t want to sign it.”

“His mom said she didn’t see no reason for him to have to sign because they were in love. He was the one who didn’t have a damn thing, but that’s another story. But from what I understand, he did sign.”

Marlo Hampton Marlo Hampton

One of the cast members of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Marlo Hampton, reveals the reason why her friendship with Nene Leakes crumbled.  This week, Marlo visited Atlanta’s own V103 Ryan Cameron Morning Show and talks about not being invited to Kandi Burruss’ wedding, and who is the one that should be kicked off on the show.

Will she attend Kandi’s wedding?  Marlo said:

Marlo Hampton and Nene Leakes Marlo Hampton and Nene Leakes

“No I wasn’t invited; I would love to go though. Kandi, send me an invite, I wanna come seriously, you know I’ll bring a nice gift.”

Would she consider Kandi as one of her friends?  She said:

“We cool now. In the beginning, when I came on the show she did warn me and then I came on being team Nene and throwing shade at the girls and listening to Nene and then after me and Nene, I go to Kandi and I apologized, which, she told me from day one that she was going play me like chess,  was right. So I know she probably feel some kind of way.”

Why was Marlo not invited in Kandi Burruss’ wedding?

Toni Braxton and Oprah Toni Braxton and Oprah

Back in 1998, Toni Braxton expressed that Oprah was being “mean” to her.  Toni felt embarrassed after Oprah tackled her financial problems and at the same time inquire about her purchase of a Gucci flatware.  Toni said:

“She was so frickin’ mean to me, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe it because I loved her so much…She pretty much reprimanded me.”

“She says to me, ‘I heard you have Gucci flatware. I’m Oprah Winfrey and even I don’t have Gucci flatware.’”

But now, there’s no more beef between Toni and Oprah since Toni will be having her OWN movie.  The two made the announcement together during OWN Upfronts.  This new movie will be entitled, “My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story.”  They announced:

Toni Braxton and Oprah Toni Braxton and Oprah

“Executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (“Twenty Feet From Stardom”), “My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story” features the story of one of the 1960’s iconic musical voices, Darlene Love. Love began cutting records for producer Phil Spector right out of high school, and went on to work with some of the greatest musical talents in history, including Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Bruce Springsteen. Whether it was the wild parties Tom Jones used to throw, how Elvis came on to her backstage at his 1968 comeback special, or her love affair with Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers, Love holds nothing back as she recalls the exciting events that make up her life. This is the dishy and dramatic story of a woman who had it all, lost it all, but never, ever refused to give up. Love will also serve as an executive producer.”

Chad Ochocinco Chad Ochocinco

Chad Ochocinco is definitely not the faithful husband that Evelyn Lozada dreams of.  After all it has been just about two years since Evelyn and Chad had separated.  The former couple was only married for 41 days and now Eve has recently given birth to Carl Leo, her son with Los Angeles Dodgers baller Carl Crawford.  Chad admitted that he had no hard feelings and revealed that it’s very hard for him to be monogamous.

Did Chad made some critical errors with his past relationships?  He said:

“I didn’t make any critical errors, I always tell the truth from jump. Discipline I lack it, dealing with one woman, let’s think rationally, let’s think logically. It ain’t have nothing to do with South Beach, it ain’t have nothing to do with Miami.  I don’t care how fine you are, for every fine woman, there’s a dude that is tired of that same woman. Human nature is undefeated and what I’ve always done, even in my past relationship, is tell the truth from jump. I never lied, I’m not going to lie to you. Why sell you a dream?”

Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada

What can he say about men who are not willing to commit?  Chad said:

“There are men out there that are willing to give their all, that have the discipline to be able to give them that storybook ending, that fairytale as I so call it. I think I’m good for that for about about 6 months. I’m on track, I’m good, [but] I don’t care how fine you are, I’m going to lose interest.”

Does Chad still have feelings for Evelyn Lozada?  Chad reveals:

“Yeah, love don’t go nowhere like that. I will always love her! Matter fact, I love every goddamn body to an extent, love ain’t going nowhere.”

Queen Latifah Queen Latifah

Aside from having a famous daytime talk show, Queen Latifah has been busy with her production company as well as other major projects.  However, not so many people are aware that she once felt desperate due to the death of her brother back in 1992.  This month Latifah is featured on the cover of JET Magazine where she revealed that she felt lost when her brother died but she recovered when she fell in love.

When was her faith being tested the most?  Latifah said:

“The biggest thing to ever test my personal faith was the loss of my brother in a motorcycle accident… I believed it ruined my life. I probably had a five-year interruption in any type of personal growth.  There were some things I didn’t learn in my twenties because I was disconnected emotionally.  I could only get so close or feel so much.”

How did she move on?  She said:

“I fell in love. It was like a circuit breaker had switched off.”

Does she plan to have any children?  Latifah answered:

“I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 18 because I grew up with friends who could’ve used good parents.  Maybe it’s my romanticism of after-school specials where someone would adopt a child and life would be great afterward.  I have a lot of love to give.”

Isn’t it an awesome interview?

Angela Yee Angela Yee

Radio host Angela Yee shares the valuable lesson that she has learned from her vocation.  She reveals that it is not good to make a choice based only on your fame.  The sample that she cited is her choice in joining Power 105′s The Breakfast Club, rather than joining Hot 97.  Yee was previously offered with a job in their recent rival, Hot 97.

During a recent interview, Yee revealed the reason why she declined the station.  She said:

“It was a practical decision that I’m glad I made. When they offered me the job at Hot 97, I just didn’t like the whole way that it happened. Cipha [Sounds] and I used to work together at Sirius. He left to go to Hot 97 and he definitely wanted me to come with him. Before they even offered me the job, they told everybody in the building that I was coming to work there. They were pitching me for advertisers. Mind you, no one had spoken to me. No one had offered me a job. So my job is like, ‘Yo, are you leaving and going to Hot 97, ’cause that’s what we’re hearing?’ I’m like, ‘No. I haven’t even spoken to anybody over there. No one’s talked to me.’ So I think they just assumed no one ever turns down a job there. So, she’s gonna definitely going to take it. I came in there. “

She further added:

Angela Yee Angela Yee

“They offered me the job. I said, ‘Well, I need to think about it.’ And he was like, ‘You need to think about it? What do you need to think about?’ I’m like, ‘I need to think about the low money that you offered me because I make more than that at Sirius now.’ The fact that I wouldn’t be an equal on the show, that was one of my main things. It was Cipha Sounds and [Peter] Rosenberg. I said, ‘Am I gonna be equal to them?’ [They said] ‘No you’re not. Your name’s not even gonna be on the show.’ I was like, ‘Well, I have my own show right now. Why would I leave having my own show to come be on a show that I’m not even part of? I’m just an extra person and you’re paying me less money.’ Practically, it didn’t make sense to me, practicalitywise. That’s why I turned it down.”

Did Yee made the right decision?
