Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Celebrity Charity, Celebrity Events, Celebrity Kids, Celebrity Music, Celebrity News, Celebrity Photos | Comments Off

Diggy Simmons has been spreading Christmas love all over New York City, while doing several holiday charity events. Diggy made an appearance at New York Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, visiting the bedside of kids who will be spending Christmas in the hospital this year. The young Simmons took time out to past out gift bags, and take pictures with his young fans. After leaving the  children’s hospital, Diggy Simmons stopped by the St. Jude Holiday party at Brooks Brothers, where he decorated cookies, ornaments, and Christmas cards with the young patients of St. Jude. Nice to see young kids giving back.

Frankie Lons Wants You To Know She Is Not Mama Jones

Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Celebrity Family, Celebrity Interviews, Celebrity News, Videos | 2 comments

Frankie Lons, Keyshia Cole’s mom, wants you to know that she is the one and only Frankie, and do not confuse her with Nancy Jones, the mother of Jim Jones. When it comes to reality TV moms, Frankie is the originator, and don’t you get it twisted. Her words not mine. During a recent interview spotted at Hip Hip News with Futuristic Blogger, Frankie becomes really defensive when asked about Mama Jones. However, Frankie does admit that she’s open to doing a reality show with Mama Jones, and Lil Scrappy’s mother. Can you imagine a reality show with these three hip-hop moms? Oh, I would definitely watch the first episode. LMBO!

We can do celebrity moms on the road. Feel me. Lil Scrappy mother, she’s out of control. We got the celebrity moms that are as crazy as a bessie bug, shot out to me. Celebrity moms on the road that will work.

But I ain’t going to do no one on one with no Jim Jones’ mama, don’t even think about. The money ain’t an issue, I don’t care how much money you offer me.

Let’s Discuss: Janet Jackson Is The New Face Of Nutrisystem + Celeb Endorsements: Yay Or Nay?

Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Celebrity News | 3 comments

I love Janet Jackson. From the little sister who appeared on various skits with brother Michael to Penny on Good Times to the mega superstar. Thick Janet, slender Janet and all Janet‘s in between.  But her weightloss battle has been fairly public and maybe that’s one of the reasons I like her so.  She’s been up and down in her weight, like a lot of us. No easy outs with lipo and surgery; just exercise and dieting.  Janet’s newest weightloss phase of her life has paired her with the company Nutrisystem.  Janet is the newest celebrity endorser for the weightloss program known for its home-delivered packaged foods.

Janet Jackson Nutrisystem Lets Discuss: Janet Jackson Is The New Face Of Nutrisystem + Celeb Endorsements: Yay Or Nay?

Jackson, who is 5-foot-4, doesn’t want to talk about the number on the scales — although the company says she has lost 10 pounds in a little more than a month — because “I’m not viewing this as a diet,” she says. “I’m not putting a number on it. I don’t look at the scale. I’m going about it in a different way this time.”

Nutrisystem has had other celebrity endorsements: retired quarterback Dan Marino and singer Marie Osmond, just to name a few.  But Janet seems to be their biggest name to back their product, yet.  See how she’s making the most of this endorsement plus talk to me about celeb endorsements, when you continue…

Jill Scott Tweets About Parenting Advice…From Lil Wayne?

Posted by on Dec 15, 2011 in Celebrity Twitter | 2 comments

Yesterday, I witnessed this go down while perusing my timeline on Twitter. Sidenote: If you aren’t following me on there, why not? Click here and get some awesome in your life! Songstress Jill Scott was going on a small rant about absentee fathers and the importance of being in your child’s life. It was all good…then…she quoted a “statistic” about the amount of time a child should interact directly with their parent. No, not from a study or a child psychologist. From a person who would know: Lil Wayne. *insert wide eyes*

Jill Scott Tweet Jill Scott Tweets About Parenting Advice...From Lil Wayne?

Really Jill? Lil Wayne?? Let me clarify my issue. No one can dispute that a child needs to interact with their parent; no study is needed to understand and agree with that.  But Lil Wayne gave a specific time frame…as if to say if a child gets at least this amount of minutes a day from a parent, they’ll have a good relationship. It’s at THIS point that I need to some some receipts. Cuz…uh uh. That sounds like a low number. 12 minutes out of 1440 minutes in a day?? That means it would take a child about 4 months to spend 24 hours with a parent, using that as a guideline.

Now granted, I could see if Lil Wayne said this after hearing about it from a news source or someone reputable in the field. And I was really hoping that was what it was: he quoted someone, she quoted him and forgot who the original source was.  Because I’m sure she wouldn’t just quote some “fact” that someone made up, right?  Well…*sigh*…a tweeter asked her a question along those lines.  And…just see what she tweeted regarding the validity of the quote, after the jump…
