I don’t understand…I don’t understand. New York, London, Milan and Paris are all gearing up for Fashion Week this September and one group is late and ignorant with one of their designs. On Easy2Dress’ website their slogan is “Unconventional T Shirts and Clothes.” Uncongenial is an understatement. I was strolling through Instagram and Tuff Magazine had the photo of Italian Blogger and Model Mariano Di Vaio wearing the Easy2Dress shirt that says “NIGGA 00.” It was a screenshot of Di Vaio’s Instagram account that he posted of him in the outfit and he had some BS quote about work hard, train hard or whatever. This image was posted to Di Vaio’s 1.9 million Instagram followers. Of course there were some disgusted by the image of the shirt, while others praised him. There were also some who defended him saying that he doesn’t understand the hurt or pain behind the word, so he should get a pass…

I now get some of Kanye’s rants about the fashion industry, he’s somewhere eating ice cream singing Solange’s “I Told You So.”

Girl I f*cking guess… after rapper Big Sean publicly announced the end of their engagement a few short months ago and she accused him of stealing a Rolex watch that he claimed he let her borrow, Naya Rivera, Kim Kardashian stunt double, star of the TV show “Glee” got married to Ryan Dorsey on July 19th in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of close family.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Dorsey met four years ago after Ryan moved to L.A. He’s originally from Charleston, West Virginia and attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts before moving to L.A. The friendship turned into a romance shortly after Naya and Big Sean broke up in April.

Wait a minute, ain’t that Brandy’s brother? Yes, William Ray Norwood Jr. is in a lot of hot water. The Los Angeles County District Attorney threw the book at Ray J from that arrest at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel back in May. The charges include sexual battery, resisting arrest, assault and battery and vandalism.

Back in May police were called to the hotel bar after Ray J allegedly made contact with a woman’s butt and he became belligerent with hotel security causing them to do a citizen’s arrest and calling the LAPD. Once the LAPD arrived and Ray J was arrested he allegedly kicked out the back window of the police vehicle and spat in an officer’s face. At the time they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with any sexual assault, they claimed the touching of the woman’s butt was incidental, but he was booked for trespassing, vandalism, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.

Now the sexual assault that Ray is being charged with isn’t for grabbing the woman’s butt, but for grabbing the woman’s breast. Yes, her breast. Law enforcement says they have found “new evidence” supporting the claim that Ray grabbed the woman’s breast in front of witnesses. The lobby and the bar of the hotel is full of cameras so I’m thinking they may have film evidence of the assault. Nevertheless Ray J’s arraignment is set for Friday and he’s not required to appear in court.

None of this would be happening if Whitney was still alive… I’m just saying.

Between getting kicked off The View, pending divorce and custody battles, Sherri can celebrate this victory for now. The judge in a L.A. courtroom disagreed with Shepard’s ex-husband Jeffery Tarpley that Shepard is an unfit mother. Tarpley was seeking full custody of their nine-year-old son and it was denied. Now Shepard has to gear her focus on this nasty battle with Lamar Sally, her latest ex. He is threating to sue her if she doesn’t embrace the child that will be born this month from a surrogate.

Allegedly, Shepard wants nothing to do with the baby who is set to come soon because she believes that Sally defraud her in the first place so he can collect child support. Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent … because she doesn’t want to get stuck with child support payments.

Allegedly the surrogate was impregnated by Sally’s sperm, but Shepard’s egg was not used. Shepard wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities, if this happens this will end the support battle. She claims Lamar defrauded her, that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then take her to court for child support. Shepard has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. The reason behind this is New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.

Chile, what the hell went on this last weekend? Omarion got arrested last Friday in Los Angeles for failure to appear for a traffic stop, then former Destiny’s Child stand-in Farrah Franklin was arrested for disorderly conduct in Horry County, South Carolina just before 5 a.m. Sunday morning. According to the police report Tampa Bay Buccaneers football player Da’Quan Bowers flew Franklin to Myrtle Beach for the weekend of fun in the sun and partying. On Saturday the two alongside with Houston Texans player Ricky Sapp went out for a night on the town. Bowers said that everyone was drinking and having a good time, but once they went back to Sapp’s South Carolina home it was very clear that Franklin was beyond wasted.

Bowers called the cops after Franklin was spazzing out and slamming doors around the house. Once she caught wind that the police was being called on her she fled. Bowers and Sapp told police that they thought Franklin was doing drugs. Bowers said he was suspicious of this because Franklin would frequently disappear to the bathroom for a long period of time.

The cops searched for Franklin and found her laying down drunk boots in a neighbor’s lawn. According to the police she could barely stand on her feet and told them since she had nowhere to go, she was going to sleep in the woods. Oh girl…

The third installment to Malcom D. Lee’s “The Best Man” is set to hit theaters April 15th 2016. The movie is entitled “The Best Man Wedding,” so someone is getting married…. Is it Jordan? Quentin and Shelby? Will Lance remarry?

Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Terrence Howard, Melissa De Sousa, Morris Chestnut, Harold Perrineau, Regina Hall and even Monica Calhoun will be returning for the film’s third installment. Monica must be playing the ghost of Christmas past or something. When Morris Chestnut and director Malcom D. Lee were in New York during the African American Film Festival in June they said that this installment will be the funniest of them all.

In 1999 “The Best Man” made $35 million domestically while “The Best Man Holiday” made $30 million during the opening weekend in theaters and $70 million overall domestically.

Are you going to go check out “The Best Man Wedding”?

Lauryn Hill is back to her old ways, she has been infamous for being late to her concerts. Sometimes she can be anywhere from one to four hours late for her shows, so what made last week’s show at the House of Blues in Chicago any different? A fan publicly called her out on it and she got pissed. Reports say that Hill was set to come on at 10:30 and didn’t hit the stage until 11:20 (that’s actually good compared to her history of being late, just saying.) The fan apparently called her out and flipped her off and that’s when she asked that he be removed and refunded his money.

Lauryn said during her rant: “I don’t play that. I don’t need to win you over and you don’t need to win me over. You can go and take all your money back. I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything. I do this because I love it and you can get on your blogs, tweet, whatever you want to. I don’t give a rat’s ass”

Girl, you don’t do it because you love it, you do it because you still owe Uncle Sam a million dollars and you don’t want to go back to jail, but I ain’t the one to gossip so…. Ya’ll know the rest.

Apparently there was a long line of people waiting to get their money back and called Hill’s performance sloppy and rushed. Check out the video of the rant below.
