Child boo! It seems as if the off-camera shenanigans of the castmates are just as interesting as those that we see on TV. All of that said, the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta kicked off on November 4th. So, make sure you tune in to Bravo this Sunday at 9:00pm to get your housewives fix. Um-kay?!
I’m willing to bet that Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson is somewhere wiping his brow as he may have one less thing to worry about.
Word on the sidewalk is that his ex-wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, wants the “no contact order” between them lifted. According to reports, Lozada is requesting the order be lifted so they can “move on.” Despite that request, TMZ is reporting that Evelyn has no plans to reconcile their relationship at this point. As widely reported in August, Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument at their home in South Florida. He was later charged with misdemeanor domestic battery and received an order to refrain from contacting or seeing
Lozada. Johnson and Lozada were married in a lavish ceremony just weeks prior to the incident. In July, their nuptials were recorded for the VH1 series Ev & Ocho, but the show as canceled following the incident. In related news, Lozada suggested Ev & Ocho was “still up in the air,” with VH1 having an option to air it. It is unclear if the network will choose to air the project, which was replaced with another show featuring a popular reality television couple.
Ciara is back with new music and this time the Atlanta native has channeled her inner Michael Jackson with some funky, fly dance moves on “Got Me Good,” the first of several singles on her “One Woman Army” album due to be released on December 4th. Peep the official video for the smash single [below]:

Produced by J6 Entertainment (formerly known as GMASH), the event was co-hosted by radio personality Tamara G and comedian Larry Dogg. Larry Dogg, who (by the way) looked like a cross between the legendary Ronald Isley and the late great Ray Charles, and his band also served as the evening’s opening act. They did a phenomenal job! Larry and his band took us on a journey down memory lane singing hits from such notable groups as The Isleys, Frankie Beverly & Maze, and more. Larry also had audience members nearly falling out of their seats from laughing so hard as he cracked jokes and picked on several in the crowd in between acts.
Shirley Murdock, who in the late 80’s peaked on the R&B top ten with the mega-hit “As We Lay,” slayed us all with soulful renditions of her memorable chart toppers, “Husband” and “Go on Without You.” But it was when the sound man couldn’t get his ish together that mutha’ really showed us that she is a “shole nuff sanga”. Murdock, not skipping a beat, belted out “I Still Love You” acapella with some in the audience serving as her impromtu background vocalist. Huntee the kidz went up! Well, at least I did. LOL!
Maryland-based 90’s male group Dru Hill performed next in the lineup. They, too, took us down memory lane singing all their greatest hits. And, aww man, because he had noticeably put on some pounds since I last saw Dru Hill perform, I just knew Jazz’s feet were never gonna leave the ground when the foursome sang their anthem, “Tell Me.” Needless to say, he shocked the buh-jesus out of me because not only did he do the [now famous] leaps throughout that song but, he served us pure energy all night long. Werk Jazz! <–[snaps in circular motion]
Powerhouse singer/songwriter Kelly Price and her fabulous background vocalists followed up and closed the out the show. Price treated us to songs like “Friend of Mine,” “Tired,” “You Should’ve Told Me,“ and more.
Not only did Kelly pay tribute to her dear friend Whitney at this event but, she took us home in style with yet another tribute and impromtu performance with the legendary Shirley Murdock, who was standing in the wing. The duo belted out “As We Lay,” the song originally made famous by Murdock and later re-recorded by Price, like no one else could. Although [if you listen to the lyrics] this is not a celebratory song but chiiile me and quite a few others were waving our hands and swaying back and forth as if we had written and recorded the song ourselves. Hmpf, you couldn’t tell me my name wasn’t Sugar PRICE, or Sugar MURDOCK that night! BOOM!!!
