The Best Dress:
Rihanna was so beautiful last night. She looked clean and refreshing in her all white. Ciara got a new pose, and it works. Her mouth isn’t open and she’s not winking or waving.
McLyte looks young, and slim, and feminine. That’s always a plus. Vivica looked so pretty on stage, she had a glow. This is the first time since Top Model that Eva looks like a model to me. Eva was Elegant and it’s a tie between Eva and Rihanna for best dress in my book.
The Worst Dress:
I’m just disappointed in Eve. Usually she wows me with her ecletic style. Eve is like the hip-hop version of Gwen Stefani and her L.A.M.B collection, but last night Eve just missed. Keyshia tried, that’s all I can say. She looked better in the wife beater on stage. LeToya look like she’s going to prom. Not bad, just not wowzers.
Honestly, no comment.
Tameka Foster (Usher’s Fiance) speaks with Kenya Byrd from Essence.com, below is an excerpt from the interview:
Tameka Foster: I knew he was the man for me when I told him personal things about me and he didn’t flinch. I never felt like he judged me. Instead, he just accepted me for who I am. I am 36 with three children so I don’t have the body of a 21-year-old. I have flaws, I have an attitude problem, I never make flights and the list goes on. Overall, I have issues that a person could either love or hate, but he accepted me completely. And every day he still treats me like we just met. He opens my car door, calls me to ask if I need anything. He gives a 100 percent and doesn’t waver on consistency.
Essence.com: Aww, Black love. So why do you think people still believe your relationship is a publicity stunt?
T.F.: That’s so foolish. Usher doesn’t have to date any woman to sell albums. He has one of the best voices and can outperform almost anyone. He naturally garners attention wherever he goes. The fact is he has many options and could have chosen to be with anyone, including a Hollywood actress that the press would have loved to write about daily.
Essence.com: I hear you have a 10 carat ring.
T.F.: Actually, it’s bigger. It’s 11.5 carats Asscher [Escher] cut. A man is not going to go out and buy 11-plus carats to be playing games. If that were the case, he could have just said he was engaged rather than go through the motions.

Check out this picture of Rosie’s daughter. How you can use your child to push your political agendas in such a way, is just way beyond my comprehension. I think I get what she is trying to do, but this is just pushing the line between sanity and insanity. She must have a submissive partner because there is no way I would let someone do this to my child.
Tonight is the BET Music Awards (8:00/7:00c) and all eyes are watching. The BET awards have really grown over the last three years, so much so, that I prefer it over the MTV Music Awards, which was so boring last year.
The “B” in BET obviously stands for “Beyonce” because she showed out and brought the level of performances up a few notches. Here is a list of the categories and nominees for tonight. My money is on Beyonce, but my heart is on Jennifer Hudson.
