iPhone Is Coming To A Cricket Near You Soon

Awww man!! Those that can't (or maybe simply don't want to) obtain a cellular contract with any of the major providers out there is about to be ballin' on a whole 'notha level! Why caaauussse???....

Because Cricket announced today that they will be offering the phone for $55 a month. This will include unlimited talk and text and 2.3 GB of data per month. AND NO CONTRACT!! (I ain't gonna lie. That's kinda appealing.)

Starting June 22nd the 8 GB iPhone 4 and the 16 GB iPhone 4S, $399.99 and $499.99, respectively, will be available. That's a hefty price tag! But I am sure they will sell out like hotcakes.

My prediction: These "no contract" wireless companies are gonna take over! All they need are quality phones. (And a bit of quality service/reception doesn't hurt either.) I've seen HTC commercials for other companies like Cricket. Decent phones with no contracts! (What whaaaaaa!)

Babysitter Kills 1 Year Old And Hides His Body In A Closet For Days!

Marquita Burch: A baby killer.

In Cincinnati, OH, 26 year old Marquita Burch killed her friend's one year old son, William Cunningham, and hid his body in a closet while she was supposed to be keeping the child safe as his babysitter. And to add insult to the entire ordeal, she initially lied, telling cops that the child was kidnapped as an explanation for his disappearance!!!

At this point, medical examiners have stated that the child suffered head trauma, which caused his death. The babysitter says that he fell down the stairs. I'm sure that is a lie. Because IF he fell down the stairs, why not call the ambulance right away?! Why not tell his mother right away?! There is no fear for yourself if the child had an accident while in your care and nothing to hide. Evidence (in the form of a deceased child's little body!) shows that this girl beat the kid to death! (If not her, someone at her place did.)

OMG!!! This is soooo sad!

And if she is willing to beat on a defenseless kid and take his life, why not be willing to face the law? Why make up stories of a kidnapping? Why say that he fell down the stairs?

Why not just come clean and face what you have to face? Render yourself as defenseless against the law as this baby was against you. No stories. No stalling.

(Really this story and all others like it just burn me up!!!)

So, Nancy Grace spoke to the baby's mother, Kiara Carter, last night. See the video below of that conversation:

The big question is why was little William with his mama's friend for 2 weeks at a time?! And Ms. Carter says that this isn't the first time that Ms. Burch has kept her child for such a lengthy amount of time. That's odd. Really odd. Even with 3 small children under her belt.... That's just weird. And sad.

It is hard raising children by yourself. And it sounds as if the mom is working and attending classes. (With no in-home help and little outside help, obviously.) I guess she felt that allowing Ms. Burch to keep her one year old was an okay move to make.  She later (on the show) described her and Marquita's relationship as best friends that progressed to a sister-type bond.

You cannot trust majority of the folks you come across. Especially when it comes to your children! I wish folks would stop playing around and know this!

Watch Nancy Grace at 8 pm EST on HLN for updates as this story unfolds. I have a feeling that the truth's gonna get real intricate on this one.

In Malaysia: A Guard Watches As A Lady Is Mugged In Broad Daylight

The below video was posted to Youtube by someone claiming to be the victim's husband. The vid shows a woman struggling with two men for her purse. During the altercation, (that takes place at her condo), the security guard at the gate comes out of his booth and does nothing more than just that.

Whoa! They that bold and brazen out Malaysia?! Two men against one tiny woman. Struggling til the death over HER belongings! And all in front of a security guard! That's a shame!

This video has gone viral since it's initial posting on Youtube just three days ago and has garnered worldwide attention. Understandably, most are upset that the guard did nothing. But around mark :43 did one of the assailants point a gun at the guard? The position/gesture is that of a gun being pointed, but the distance doesn't allow me to be sure. And there is no sounds, so it could be that he points at him and gives a verbal warning... Or maybe he has some other sort of weapon..?? As viewers, we may never really know.

If a weapon was involved and the guard had no weapon of his own, I can totally understand why he didn't advance no further than he did. But maybe a call to the cops would have done some good here. (Again, we don't know if he did that prior to coming out the booth or not.)

If you were this security guard, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?!

Sorry.Too lazy to find a better pic for this post. (Enjoy the vid though)

I guess they just abandonded that idea to call themselves "The Throne" collectively, huh?? (I be pressed to announce their material as such, but I fear no one would remember that's the duo's name, supposedly.)

Anyways.. Here's the vid for "No Church In The Wild":

I am loving this video!

"Exodus 23:1" Pusha T [Video]

The rap beef rumor mill has been churnin' like nobody's business!!! since "Exodus 23:1" dropped online last week. "Is he talkin' 'bout Wayne?...Drake?...A producer?..." One can only speculate, but no one knows for sure! Wayne followed up with a weak minimum of bars in response with "Goulish". So, maybe it was for him. (They say a hit dog will holler) But, then Drake took to a stage and responded to the song too. ???? Do we got two hit dogs or just one hit label/crew?... What's going on?!

Whatever it is, Pusha T reminds folks that it's really realz down in his hometown in VA with the "Exodus 23:1" vid below: (Warning: EXTREME DRUG USE!!)

That Biggie "What's Beef" outro though...

I'm sure this is all a "To be continued.." affair.

SuperSoaker Converted Into A 20-Gauge Shotgun

 Pranking has been taken to a whole new, FATAL, level! Whatever happened to putting koolaid... or hot water.... or hell!! even a lil bleach in a Super Soaker?!

No..No..No..No..NO!! 54 year old Randy Smith tweaked the toy and put real live ammunition in his 'Soaker.

From HuffingtonPost:

This is hardly child's play: Randy Smith, 54, was reportedly found walking the streets of Fresno, Calif., Saturday night, carrying a Super Soaker that he had converted into a 20-gauge shotgun, according to KMPH.
Normally cops wouldn't raise an eyebrow at someone waltzing around town with one of a high-powered plastic water guns, but an uptick in toy-to-gun conversions made officers more suspicious of Smith.
They stopped him and found that he had indeed fashioned a powerful weapon out of $30 worth of parts.
"He took the Super Soaker apart, was able to fashion a barrel to where he was able to make what's considered a zip gun, where you can fire one round through it. In this case it was a 20-gauge shotgun shell," Fresno Police Sgt. Mark Hudson told the station.
But as NBC pointed out, the conversion isn't just illegal, it's dangerous for the manufacturer. Makeshift barrels can explode under pressure, sending shrapnel and gunpowder flying.
"So they're just relying on, maybe this [gun barrel] will hold up. Well, you could be putting a gun next to your head, or you could be putting a hand grenade next to your head," Hudson said.
Smith was arrested Saturday night and released Sunday on gun-related charges. He's been in and out of prison since 1994, police said.

Sooooooooo..Wayne decides to put his thoughts on record in response to Pusha's single "Exodus 23:1" that hit the 'net a few days ago. Annnnnndd... I just wanna say... "Why??" and "Really?!"

I hate when responses are weak as hell. Better left alone, don't you agree?

Facebook Camera iPhone App

As if owning the most popular photo-sharing app, Instagram, was not enough, Facebook released a new app called Facebook Camera yesterday on iPhone. This app allows users to bypass the actual FB app to post,view,comment on and like pictures much in the same way as Instagram.

I've checked it out very briefly. The layout of the application reminds me of Tumblr Plus. Mmmm... I don't know... It's hard for me to see the purpose of this app. Instagram allows you to share your photos directly to your Facebook timeline and saves them in an album on the site. So, maybe those that do not utilize Instagram may find this as useful??

"Exodus 23:1" Pusha T [Audio]

I love me some Pusha! (Not so much his hair.. "Power's in my hair, nigga!" o.O) Lyrically and delivery-wise though, he's definitely on it. And rumor has it that his razor-sharp words are directed at Cash Money affiliate(s)??

Vibe reported that Weezy F. Baby sent this lil tweet out this morning:

A Show Review: "Girls" On HBO

I'm sure y'all have heard/read this before, but I AM CHEAP AS HELL!! (And still broke!--I digress) And therefore, I live my life sort of minimally. I try not to get into too many bills aside from the mandatory such as rent, electric, GAS, car note, etc. Cable is my one "luxury" 'cause I gots ta have my reality tv! Bitches with opportunities that many will never see in their lifetime, acting dumb as hell! Just wasting shit! I LOVE IT!!

And that's really all I watch. Sitcoms just ain't the same no more. Not like in the 80's or the 90's. Sitcoms were the shit back then. Just my opinion.

But, anyways, on to the post subject at hand: "Girls" on HBO is hilarious!! Had my friend not twisted my arm into adding HBO for just 10 additional dollars a month, (and offering to pay it, even), I would have forever missed out on such a good series! I watched the most recent episode and immediately went back to catch up on the beginning of the season On Demand.

The series is about an awkward recent college grad named Hannah from Ohio that moves to Brooklyn (NY) with hopes of becoming a known writer. She's funny, a little chunky, debatably alright-looking and unemployed! She was surviving off her parents money until they decided it was time for her to grow up and start attempting to take care of herself, at the age of 24. 

Hannah and her friends go through real life situations. She has a dude in her life that I believe is just a f*ck buddy, but it seems as though she believes it's something more, possibly. He is the funniest! Her roommate has a longterm boyfriend (of 4 years) that she has outgrown. Another friend is a bit "loose" and yet another is really conservative and mousy.

I'm addicted.

Why You Mad, Son?!: It's 2012 And Folk Still Hella Pissed Wit' Chris Breezy

Good GRIEF!!! I had to check out Breezy's performance during the recent Billboard Music Awards show after seeing so many stories online about folks upset that he lip synced AS WELL AS the many tweets, Mr. Brown, himself has posted thanking his supporters and admonishing his haters.

I, personally, do not see the big deal in Chris putting his all into the visuals of a performance.  He's a natural talent. Awesome in dance as well as vocals. And I've seen many folks do the Beyonce comparison, "..Bey dances her ass off IN HEELS and still stay on key. She can do that through an entire concert. So what's Chris Brown's excuse??.."

I'll give it to Bey. She can, indeed, bust some moves and keep that stamina without her voice faltering during a live performance. She's! (No doubt) But we have to compare the moves. Not the people. Not the attire. The moves. Is she somersaulting and back flipping all over the stage? No. Can't say I've ever seen her do that. I bet that if she were to, something would have to give. Just as something has to give when it comes to Chris pulling such a performance off. You either get great vocals and minimal to moderate dancing or you get kick ass, extreme dancing and minimal vocals.  It has everything to do with preference, really.

I remember a bit back, Perez Hilton wagged a finger at Chris via Twitter over him lip syncing during a performance. He went like OD hard on that performance. During the same show, Adele performed and he pointed out that Adele delivered an exceptional vocal performance, whereas Chris did not. I quickly defended Chris Brown on the Twitterverse, stating that neither performer delivered that night what the other did. I love Adele and her sweet voice, but did she accomplish any acrobatic feats while on stage? I don't believe I caught that if she did. And Chris... Did he stand still in the center of the stage with a mic and no movement but his hands and the occasional head nod? If he did, I think I MISSED THAT!!

As I said that night, and I am saying again: Adele delivered a beautiful auditory performance. Chris delivered a beautiful visual performance. (Preferences, guys...Preferences.) As an audience, must we really choose which is the better of the two? I, myself, enjoyed them both just as much as the other.

And here is Chris, once more, scrutinized. And let's just keep it 100... Is it the years long since passed Rihanna incident or are these folks really just that upset that he's not bionic enough to dance AND sing his life away at the same time? (You decide)

C'mon!!!! He rode in on a bike AND activated the "Fun Zone"!! What do y'all want from this guy other than for him to lay down in defeat over his actions as an immature teen?! Those that bash him horribly over this (and any other lip sync performance) need to cut it and get a lil something they call a life... some biz... Sheesh!!

Chris is dancing hard as hell! That's that back in da day Sock Hop dance battle type dancing. (That's harder than life, right there!) Although, I can say that if anybody mad about the overly exaggerated lip movements.... I'm with ya on that one. o.O

And Ms. Brandy!! She is looking too fierce, is she not?!

Anchorman 2 Teaser [Video]

Nearly a decade after being introduced to Ron Burgundy and crew in the 2004 film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, the sequel, Anchorman 2, announces its coming sometime in 2013.

Here's a teaser:

Doesn't give us too much. But, from the few lines we are given, I'm thinking it'll deliver on most's expectations.

2012 Billboard Music Awards: Tribute To Whitney Houston Performed By Jordin Sparks & John Legend [Video]

John Legend performs Whitney's classic, "The Greatest Love of All" and Sparks performs, "I Will Always Love You". I can't say that I enjoyed either performance much. It's hard to touch on a Whitney song. In saying that.. The performances weren't horrible (by any means), but they weren't great either.

Jordin Sparks' attempt was quite noble, but if I had my choice on the performer, I totally would have assigned Jennifer Hudson! I knew J. Hud got them vocals, but she surprised me with her performance of "I Will Always Love You" at the this year's Grammys. (Whew! Lawd!! That girl can hang with Ms. Houston!)

But you know what though, no matter who they got to perform on last night's show... I cannot begin to express the level of thankfulness I felt to find out that the rumors of Bobbi Kristina singing was just that: RUMORS!! *Wipes sweat off brow** Bobbi is like... A Miley Cyrus. Talented parent. (In Bobbi K.'s case, TWO!) But them offspring just ain't got it.

Following the tribute, Whoopi Goldberg joins Legend and Sparks on stage to present the Billboard Millenium Award to Whitney Houston, which Bobbi Kristina accepted on her mother's behalf. See the below vid:

In case you missed Jennifer's Grammy performance of "I Will ALways Love You":

Even when choking off emotions, Jennifer's delivery is just better.

Man With 30 Kids Asks For A Child Support Break?!

Maybe Des should pawn that '92 herringbone. Buy everyone a round of dollar fries @ Mickey D's.

Desmond Hatchett, of Knoxville, TN, is 33 years old with a total of 30 biological children under his belt. (Yeah. 30!!!) And he's recently asked a local judge to decrease his child support because half of his pay is taken and divided amongst his brood, leaving him with nothing much, I suppose. (Oh, cry me a river!)

From Huffington Post:

Desmond Hatchett has fathered 30 children -- which is believed to be the record in Knox county, according to the Los Angeles Times -- with 11 different women. His youngest children are toddlers and his oldest is 14.
Hatchett reportedly asked the court to give him a break on his payments, claiming that he's struggling to make ends meet with his minimum-wage job. Currently, the state requires him to divide 50 percent of his earnings among the 11 women, some of whom receive as little as $1.49 a month, WREG reports.
How did Hatchett come to father so many children? “I had four kids in the same year. Twice," he told Volunteer TV in 2009. He also told a local news station that year that he was "done" having kids (he had only 21 at the time).

See.. This guy's worried 'bout the wrong thangs in life. How about request a complete life "Do-Over"?!! Or maybe a vasectomy. Dude. You do not have to single-handedly keep the world's population going, ya know.

30 kids?! Minimum wage job?! The two definitely don't mix. 

Cop Kicked Pregnant Woman In The Stomach!! [Video]

A Georgia woman, Raven Dozier, delivered her child prematurely due to trauma following a swift kick to the gut delivered by an officer. Officer Jerad Wheeler responded to a domestic dispute involving Dozier's brother and the mother of his children in December. And after tasing her brother, the officer then turned on the young, pregnant woman.

Wow! This guy is just runnin' round down in Georgia terrorizing its citizens!..Killing dogs that pose no threat, twisting the arms of mature women, and kicking the hell out of pregnant guts! WITH A BADGE! (Protection from the "protector" is needed ASAP!)


I hope that Dozier and her family is compensated for this guy's complete disregard for her child's life. What amount of money would soothe the fact that this man seriously threatened this unborn child's life with an intentional kick to a pregnant woman's stomach??? Really?! I, personally, can't even think up a number. Although I am sure a nice, life-changing amount will be in the cards for her.

And as for this officer... He can take his "academy training" and try to put it to use against fellow inmates. He deserves to lose his badge and his freedom.

Teen Finds A Finger In Arby's Sandwich

A Michigan teen recently visited a local Arby's with his mother and got a little more than he came for.... A bit more MEAT, in the form of a human finger!!

From Huffington Post:

Ryan Hart, 14, was eating a roast beef sandwich when he bit into a piece he described as particularly rubbery. He spit out the item, which turned out to be a part of a finger measuring about one-inch long and a quarter-inch thick, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reports.
The incident occurred at the Arby's restaurant on N. West Avenue in Jackson, Mich., on May 11, just after Hart and his mother had gone to the establishment for a quick bite after school.
Health officials said a worker likely left her area after cutting her finger on a meat slicer, according to the Jackson Citizen Patriot. Other employees, allegedly unaware of their co-worker's injury, continued with their regular duties. Once informed of the incident, the restaurant team stopped food production and cleaned and sanitized the restaurant.
Hart is doing fine, after getting his blood drawn and getting prescribed medicine at the hospital.

I had a conversation just the other day about not trusting others to make my food. Besides my ever-expanding waistline, stories such as this is more than enough reason to cut back on eating out.

Seriously though, how this chick gonna cut her finger and just leave her station. Is anyone around that place paying attention?! We've all seen the inside of the fast food joints. It ain't like these people are working in cubes back there. The space is tiny and open. I'd imagine that one would always know what's going on with another back there. Right?? o_O

I see a lawsuit coming for their negligence.

Tami Roman Has Been Forced To Delete Her Twitter!!

Tami Roman. Beautiful on the outside. Ugly to the core inside.

My...My...My!! When the bully becomes the bullied. (I love the irony in that!)

According to, Tami Roman has deleted her Twitter account, along with her daughters, Jazz and Lyric, due to the backlash the 3 received from Tami's grand production of bullying the hell out of Kesha during the most recent episode of Basketball Wives that aired Monday night.

Tami released the following statement:

I deactivated my twitter for the time being because I have been blessed with a wonderful opportunity to work with phenomenal actors on a new television show. I didn’t want to wake up to the continual negativity from a mistake made over four months ago, which I have openly acknowledged and apologized for to overshadow the blessing of this moment. I plan to reactivate my twitter when a formal announcement has been made about this new opportunity with the hopes of putting BasketBall Wives behind me.

Boo hoo hoo!! "..Didn't want to wake up to continual negativity...." Wah Wah Wah!!! Don't feel too good being constantly attacked, huh? And guess what... Tami is just getting a teeny tiny lil taste of the emotions Kesha must have felt when she was under attack by Tami. These are people online that pose no physical threat (for the most part, 'cause sometimes it do be getting real if/when folks meet face-to-face offline), as opposed to Tami being all up in the girl's face and space. Whatever extent of online bullying Tami endured was well-deserved.

Her kids are a different story. They can't help what their mama do. And from past episodes, the girls don't even like the stunts their mama be pulling. (Y'all remember that episode when she was ready to jump on her cousin for assigning the girls a new manager? The girls tried to take some sense into her. She shut them down, even.) Tami Roman is just a truly bitter woman. Mad at the world for whatever reasons. And she needs more than the opportunity to appear on a new television show. She needs serious therapy. Even with all the opportunities in the world, I gather that this lady will always, somehow be miserable and angry. (That's sad.)

In Texas: A Deranged Chick Killed Her Kids' Father Over A Mother's Day Gift!!

This is Paige. (Cute)Killer in a lacefront. SMH

This is insane!

Sunday night, in Beaumont, TX, 20 year old Paige Parkerson stabbed the father of her two small children, 21 year old Clifton Barken to death. It's believed by the victim's family that Paige was unhppy with her Mother's Day gift, which Barken purchased from WalMart.

...Another sad story.

Fellas (and ladies), I know these crazy actin' people are edgy and a bit of a thrill to be involved with, but please leave dey ass alone!! Little Paige Parkerson MUST be crazy. Sure 'nough, textbook CRAZY to pull some shit like this! I mean... How much did she expect her gift to cost?! Looking at the interior AND exterior of the home, there wasn't much funds rollin' around over there. So, one day she just decides she wants more and when he can't deliver, she kills him?!

(See how crazy that sounds?!)

Bless his fam, kids and his soul.

Donna Summer Dead At 63!


Donna Summer -- the Queen of Disco -- died this morning after a battle with cancer ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Summer was in Florida at the time of her death. She was 63 years old.

Sources close to Summer tell us ... the singer was trying to keep the extent of her illness under wraps. We spoke to someone who was with Summer a couple of weeks ago ... who says she didn't seem too bad.

In fact, we're told she was focused on trying to finish up an album she had been working on.

Summer was a 5-time Grammy winner who shot to superstardom in the '70s with iconic hits like "Last Dance," "Hot Stuff" and "Bad Girls."

She continued her dominance in the '80s with "She Works Hard for the Money" and "This Time I Know It's for Real."

Summer and her producer Giorgio Moroder defined the dance music era of the '70s and influenced acts like Duran Duran and David Bowie to enter the genre.

Summer married Brooklyn Dreams singer Bruce Sudano back in 1980. They had two daughters together. 

Goodness!! DC's Chuck Brown yesterday and Ms. Summer today! Sad times.

Here's my personal fave from Summer:
"Love to Love You Baby" (Live Performance)

"Don't Let Me Die" Bobby Brown--A Dedication To Whitney Houston [Audio] has a clip from the live performance of this single from his upcoming album, The Masterpiece and my one thought was: Mr. Brown...Mr. Brown!!! NO!

I'm not sure if it was the nerves or what, but that performance left much to be desired. He did do a signature "Woo!" from his early career days and I enjoyed that. Click HERE for a bit of that Jay Leno performance, which was my introduction to the song. (A bad one) The actual studio version is cool. Makes me even kinda anticipate the album's release (due next month).

Lil Kim On The Breakfast Club (May 17, 2012)

I turned to Power 105.1 (via iHeart Radio) this morning and was pleasantly surprised to hear that their guest for the day was Lil Kim. I caught the interview right at the point where Kim was speaking on the Notorious B.I.G movie and how she was portrayed. She says the portrayal was very wrong and even went as far as to say that Big's mom ain't know him. From there Charlamagne asked her why she fucked her cute lil face up with all that plastic surgery and of course, the infamous Nicki Minaj beef was brought up. From what Kim says, the beef is really with Slim of Cash Money, I suppose. She tells a story of how she was set to work with Slim and sent him songs, which Nicki jacked her style from and rose to stardom with.

I knew Kim was bitter!! Though she still plays the "Nicki started this" card, from the story she told, she's upset that she was set to work with Cash Money, that fell through, but they then pushed Nicki out with her style. As a human...Bitter, would be the correct emotion in a case like that. Especially if you ain't poppin' at the moment but a chick that you see your style in, is. Everyone can say what they want, but we would all feel the exact same way. Now, if this tale of events is really true or not.... WHO KNOWS! But this is her story and she's sticking to it. (Not the first time I heard her tell it.)

I also caught her droppin' the F*Bomb like it ain't no thang! (On a morning radio show)

That's all I caught from the interview. So, basically, I'll be watching the first half right along with all the rest of you that missed it this morning and will probably update this post soon with my thoughts on that.

Basketball Wives (aka BULLIES): Tami Makes Kesha Cry And Beg For Her Purse, Phone & ID Back! Plus, What Shaunie And Vh1 Thinks..

Poor Kesh..

If you saw last night's episode of Basketball Wives, Season 4, you probably had to remind yourself several times to pick your jaw up off the floor.  I know I did! I sat there: mouth open and eyes wide with total shock!! Did you see Tami make poor Kesha bawl her eyes out and beg to get her purse and other personal belongings back??! If you didn't catch that or even if you did.. I'm going to give a lil summary:

The show began where it left off last week: The ladies in beautiful Tahiti, seated at a table at an outside bar, Tami going berserk over comments Kesha made to Royce and Suzie about her. And if I've said it A hundred trillion times, make this A hundred trillion one: I CANNOT STAND SUZIE'S OLE LISPY TONGUED TINY ANIMAL-FACED, SCARED, SHIT STARTING ASS!! I don't even know anyone, personally that I loathe more than I loathe Suzie's ass! (That's crazy) She is always lurking around, running shit back, so as to secure her place in "The Circle". The fact that she even wants to be part of this "Circle" after Jen and Evelyn had her shook up like a can'o paint just a season ago is beyond lame!

So, Kesha told Royce and Suzie earlier this season that she "Could've went off on Tami" during their argument at a restaurant, but didn't because nothing she could have said would have made Tam look any worse than she already was by causing this huge scene in a nice establishment all over the fact that Kesha felt some kind of way over Tami telling her she looks white (and not mixed, as she is). Suzie runs back like the good lil mutt that she is, and told Tami what Kesha said. Tami decides in her crazy lil head, that she wants to confront Kesha while enjoying the beauty of Tahiti. (Dumb ass shit) So, she confronts Kesha about if she wants to "Go off" on her and even pushes her chair back, with legs gapped open to provide Kesha the space in which to do so.

Kesha is totally caught off guard. First, I'm sure she never thought her words would get back to Tami. Secondly, they are in fuckin' Tahiti!!!!Supposedly, to have a good time....Leave worries behind...Ya know? And here goes Tami on that bullshit. So, Kesha stammers and dances around the question of whether she said it or not. She asks Tami who told her that and Tami lets it be known that Suzie told her. The entire time, Suzie sits there, eyes wide, looking scared as all hell. Kinda like she did last season when she witnessed Tami jump on Meeka after SUZIE ran shit back to Tami that Meeka had said.  (For the life of me, why has no one smacked the Be'Jesus out of Suzie ass yet?!)

Anyways, the verbal altercation escalates to the point where Kesha seriously fears her safety. She gets up from the table and from afar tells Tami time and time again that she doesn't want to fight with her. Tami tells her time and time again to stop talking shit if she ain't ready for the repercussions.  Now, I do agree with that. But, honestly, what the girl said wasn't shit, for real. I could see if she said she was going to punch Tami in the face or fuck her up, etc... She simply said she could have went off on her. I take that to mean, verbally. Tami should have shrugged that off from the jump. She know Kesha ain't want it. What's the point in confronting her on some dumb shit like that, even?! That was just Kesha, venting to some bitches she invited to her folks' home. And that BITCH, Suzie ain't have no business repeating that shit. It wasn't even shit to tell. (Aaaaaarrrrggghhh!!!)

(Back to the present) Kesha realizes she left her purse in her seat, with her hasty departure, and she lets Tami know she just wants to get her stuff and leave. Tami tells her, menacingly, that if she wants her purse, she needs to come over to where Tami is seated (basically) and get her purse. Kesha thought better of it and just left. When the rest of the crew leaves, Tami grabs her purse and decides that if she wants it back, she must apologize to her. (For talking shit, I guess???--This behavior is confusing as hell.)

On the shuttle ride back to their rooms, Tami decides to go through Kesha's purse and check her text messages to see if Kesha had been texting about her.----Tami has no sense of "Enough is E-fuckin'-Nuff!! 1: She screamed on Kesha over some petty shit that was said (IN BEAUTIFUL TAHITI!!!!) 2: She dared Kesha (with her tone) to come near her to retrieve her shit; making Kesha leave without her shit and 3: She rummages through Kesha's purse, with Kesha's Marc Jacobs shades on her face, looking for Kesha's phone to see if Kesha has been talking shit about her secretly, via text. She should have stopped midway through number 1. Actually, she should not have even gotten to number 1, but let's forgive her that. Let's say that she did make it to number 1. There is no way in hell that she should have allowed herself to progress to number 2. NO WAY!!!

And see, prior to last night, I could say that I liked Tami. She is definitely rough around the edges. She reminds me of a Chrissy Lampkin (of Love & Hip Hop) a bit. They both "Keep it real" for the most part. And I admire that about them. There are far too many people in the world that let lil snubs slide (and even large snubs). It takes a special kind that nips that shit every time! Like, "Nah. That shit right there ain't gonna slide!" I admire that. At one time in my life, I used to be that person that let people get away with saying or doing whatever because I didn't want to face confrontation or if a "loved" one did some stupid shit, I didn't want to risk hurting their feelings (back). I carried that attitude up into my early 20's. Then something just snapped. No more!! So, I can really relate to times when then ladies speak up for themselves or their friends to let it be known that they ain't going for just anything. But there's a thin line between "Keeping it real" and just being downright ignorant! Tami was all over that line onto the IGNORANT territory last night.

And what bothered me the most about the whole argument outside at the bar is that, not one single other lady at that table spoke up. And no, I ain't expect no one to speak up and take up for or side with Kesha, but someone should have spoken up and told their girl, Tami to chill. The whole scene was uncalled for. Had that been me and my friends/associates, especially seeing that one of the chicks ain't trying to argue, let alone, fight, one or possibly all of us would have told the aggressor to chill the fuck out. Now, if two of my friends get into it and they both being just as aggressive, that's mutual. But even then, I wouldn't let it escalate into no physical shit, if I could help it. But definitely, if one is scared shitless of the other...That situation ain't escalating, no how!!

And Tami kept calling Kesha a scared bitch. Kesha definitely was not the only scared bitch on the scene. Tami was surrounded by scared bitches. Ain't not one person say a motherfuckin' thing as Tami just went completely off the deep end on Kesha. That shit was so sad!

And it didn't stop there....

Suzie (Yes. She stays in shit.) went to Kesha's room to tell her that she should just apologize to Tami to get her bag back. WHAT IN DA WHAAATTT?! Kesha is a grown ass woman. Your suggestion to her is to apologize to ger HER shit back?! Shit that belongs solely to HER. No half belonging to Tami or a quarer or a 16th....100% belonging to Kesha. She's supposed to go apologize to get her own shit back?! That shit's absurd!

Kesha asks Suzie to help her get her bag back and even goes as far as to say that she doesn't care about the bag or any of its contents, other than her passport to get back into the States. Suzie continues to tell her to just apologize and everything will be cool. Kesha wasn't not having it. Probably a mixture of pride and fear made her decide to turn to the front desk and local authorities to get her things back. Suzie saw her at the front desk and suggested that she not go that route, because it will just make things worse for her.

See. Suzie's a complete airhead. And if she were in the same position she would have long ago swallowed her pride, kissed and licked Tami's feet and then stayed on her knees to apologize. She's just that scared. At about the same level or possibly even more-so than Kesha. So, just how does it work that she tries to make Kesha feel bad about handling the situation in her own (scared) manner?! That's the shit I can't get with, with these chicks!! Neither decision is all that great, but one scary bitch cannot be passing judgement on another! That's all I'm sayin'.

So, as is Suzie's style, she goes to report to Tami that Kesha's gone to the cops about her bag and things. Tami scurries over to Kesha's room with the other ladies in tow to give her the bag back before shit gets really REAL on her ig'nant ass! She enters the room and tells a hysterical Kesha that she doesn't respect her because she's a snitch and a bitch (and all the above) and then goes into a story about how Kesha is a liar because she didn't "steal" anything from her and that Kesha should actually thank her for getting the bag because she was the last one at the table and if it weren't for her, the purse would have still been at the table. That's a complete lie. She, Evelyn, Shaunie and Suzie all left the table at the same damn time! She snatched that bag up before anyone else could get their hands on it and decided Kesha would beg and apologize to have it back as punishment for daring to talk about her behind her back.

 Why was Tami on that shit last night?! (Whyyyyy?!) After her weird verbal tirade laced with lies, she asks Kesha if she wants her bag back, to which Kesha replies, "Yes, please", between tears and running snot. Tami reaches the bag to her but then yanks it back saying that Kesha must ask for it back. Kesha then politely asks for her bag back and Tami gives it to her and leaves.

Once Tam leaves, Evelyn shares in on a cry with Kesha. I don't recall if the Shaunie and Suzie cried in that scene. I wanna say that Shaunie did too, but I really don't remember. The fact that anyone of them felt that strongly about the bullying that went down, but no one found it in their hearts to speak up while it was going on is CRAZY!!...The fact that Shaunie and Evelyn urged Kesha to not go home was even crazier! That girl is scared to death and not nar' one of them had her back when it was needed. What the fuck would she stay for?! To continue to endure the same shit as that unfortunate day or stay locked up in her room the whole while??

Ultimately, Kesha did go home. And as she was leaving, Jen and Kenya arrived. Kenya will open her room door up to a nice lil dead fish and squid surprise the ladies left her next episode.

The bullying and drama just don't stop with this bunch. Here's what Shaunie O'neal has to say about it:

VH1 and Shed Media also released statements of their own concerning the physical drama these grown women engage in:

Shed Media:
“Shed Media US is fully committed to telling the compelling stories of the Basketball Wives in a balanced way. Our producing partner Shaunie O’Neal feels strongly about this, and we fully agree with this stance. We support her as she encourages the cast members to work out issues in a non-violent fashion. We look forward to working with her and the rest of the cast on conveying more balance in the next season.”
“Our viewers opinions always matter a great deal to us at VH1. Lately, there has been a lot of conversation about Basketball Wives, a series featuring strong, intelligent women with very passionate viewpoints which can sometimes escalate.
We at VH1 agree with and support Shaunie and the show producers’ “no excessive physical confrontations” policy on the series moving forward. We are all committed to balancing the candid, bold excitement that the viewers have come to love in the series with storylines and representations they can be proud of. Shaunie has been a strong advocate for a more balanced approach to the show and we, along with our producing partners at Shed Media, are all in agreement about moving forward with that goal.”

Tami is starting to look like a common denominator. She's had very explosive beefs with just about everyone except Royce and Shaunie. Sad. I hope she really does get some help for that.
