I’m sure you’ve already heard about the messy situation that Chris Brown has currently found himself engulfed in due to a scuffle over the weekend. As we told you, Brown was arrested for felony assault after a party he hosted at Howard University in an effort to take part in their homecoming festivities (but this was not an official party the University was behind). He was arrested early Sunday morning outside of the W Hotel after he took a picture with some female fans, and two men allegedly decided to jump in the photo (who weren’t fans). Brown had some words for them and it turned into a physical altercation with one of the men, who is planning on pressing charges after reportedly having his nose broken. Brown was arrested and charged with felony assault. And while many folks are rolling their eyes at yet another Breezy incident, his fans and his famous friends are speaking out and standing by him. Even Bow Wow wrote a personal message on his Instagram (picture and all) for his embattled friend:
Been homies since day 1. Im talking bout got money together so much like bros if you aint have it on you my ni**a it was nothing i got you! Same on both ends! Keep yo head up stay focused you got a gift that your fans appreciate. Dont give these people no more reason to talk. Deliver them hits and focus on what YOU gotta do! Love my G #Freemyhomie! Hood & @wackstar yall scream at me let me know the 411! Hit me on the hip! Yall stay up too!”
And he’s not the only one showing love. Trey Songz even showed up in D.C. today to support Brown at his arraignment. Of course, Brown has been held in jail since he was arrested because he had to see a magistrate first. But his arraignment was delayed for a while because of an over-packed courtroom, and information on it (if it’s finally started and the end result) still hasn’t been made public yet.
An overflow room for fans wanting to listen in has been made in the court basement, and some of Brown’s family had to be put in a separate room because of the courtroom presence. Even outside, as Trey Songz entered, it seemed more like the red carpet of an awards show as fans who stood outside for hours with signs saying “Leave Chris Brown Alone” screamed “OH MY GOD, IT’S TREY SONGZ!!!” It’s all a bit too much for a courtroom appearance for a serious charge that could come with serious time (four years). We will keep you posted on what comes of his arraignment, but I know he must be appreciating the support right now…because he definitely could use it.
According to the Washington Post, district prosecutors lowered Brown’s felony assault charge to a misdemeanor. As court papers stated, Brown says that he didn’t strike the man who says he broke his nose at all. There was initially confusion as to who threw the first punch, because Brown’s security guard was also arrested and charged (and his charges were lowered too), so that could be why Brown caught a break. Where are security cameras when you need them? Anyway, according to TMZ, Brown was released without bail and was told to stay 100 yards away from the victim.
Whoever this little girl is, she’s already on her duck lips steez. And as cute as she is, we’re certainly not mad at her. Nails painted, lips pursed, and Audrey Hepburn as a guide, she’s on the way to becoming a little lady. Can you guess whose daughter she is? A few clues, her father lives and works full time in New York City, he was the object of many little girls’ affections back in the day, and recently someone tired to impersonate him to establish an online relationship.
I think I’ve spelled it out pretty well. But just in case you’re still in the dark, there’s another clue in the caption this celebrity posted on his Instagram.
OMG what have i created.. Im blaming her momma @missjoie & my momma @teresabwmom hahaha
Last week’s episode of Catfish had the internets going nuts. If you recall, Keyonnah thought she was in a relationship with rapper Bow Wow. After the episode aired on MTV, Bow Wow issued a very arrogant, unsympathetic response. In the midst of fawning over himself, he did manage to invite Keyonnah and Dee Pimpin, the woman who was pretending to be Bow Wow, to “106 & Park.”
They had that meeting yesterday on the show. And it was quite entertaining.
From the moment she hit the stage, Bow Wow presented her with flowers and a hug that Keyonnah let linger. After being embarrassed on national television, she was not shy.
“We flew you in, we did the hair up. We got your makeup right. That’s how a real fella is supposed to treat a lady.”
Keyonnah explained why she’s been such a Bow Wow fan since she was 9 years old. It was almost too hard to watch as she listed all the things that contribute to Bow Wow’s appeal. His eyes, his hair when he had. She said she likes that he is “out here and ’bout it.” And Bow soaked up every last bit of it.
“You really thought that was your boy?”
She said she was skeptical at first but then when Dee Pimpin started sending money, she assumed he was the one.
And then… Dee Pimpin’ came out boppin’ like she was accepting an award that day. After Bow Wow told her not to scam any women in New York, he asked Dee why she decided to imitate him.
Bow Wow: “It was so many celebrities that you could have been. It’s a lot of other guys in the game who have strong, female fan bases as well. You could have been Trey, you could have been Drizzy Drake, you could have been Chris Brown. But you picked Bow Weezy.
Dee: Bow Wizzle!
Bow Wow: What made you say that I’m gon’ be Bow Wow?
Dee: A lot of kids they called me you, when I was younger. Cuz I had the afro and I was doing music at a younger age. So I kinda fell into your path and tried to walk your steps.
Then they played this cute little trivia game where Dee Pimpin’ answered questions about Bow. Check out the videos on the next page and then the video of Dee and Keyonnah answered questions from Instagram followers.
If you’re a fan of MTV’s hit show, “Catfish,” then you know that last night’s episode was a doozy. The short of it is that a woman, Keyonnah, believed she was in an online relationship with rapper Bow Wow. Now, before we start wondering about homegirl’s intelligence level, there were a few signs that could lead a naive and desperate person to believe that Bow Wow really was talking to her. For instance, “Bow Wow” messaged her after she left a note on his Facebook fan page and throughout the course of their relationship sent her $10k. Perhaps if Keyonnah followed the news, she would have known that Bow Wow could barely afford to make his child support payments. So there was no way he should have been sending a random fan, a stranger $10k.
So by the end of the episode, Keyonnah meets the person who’s been masquerading as Bow Wow. And lo and behold it’s a woman, a lesbian, named “Dee Pimpin.” Crazy, right? (If you haven’t seen the episode, you MUST watch.) The craziest thing about the meeting was that Dee believed she and Keyonnah would still have a chance. I mean, sure she wasn’t a man and had lied to her but she had a really life-like, lambskin dildo that she was gon’ use to turn Keyonnah out. LOL you can not make this stuff up.
Needless to say, Keyonnah is devastated. Not only did Dee lie about the nature of their relationship, she had her male cousin, Larry speak to her on the phone so she could be listening to a male voice. She was embarrassed, betrayed and disgusted by the whole situation. And even though we, the viewing audience, all knew that Bow Wow was not going to be on the other side of the door, I still felt for her. I mean dude was her childhood crush, c’mon.
So after the episode airs, Bow Wow and BET, in a move to rightly capitalize off of the episode release a video reaction to the episode centered all around him. I’m including the video, but let me just pull out a few highlights.
“The new thing is this “Catfish” situation. Let’s talk about how somebody is actually impersonating me. Now, first of all that’s a hard thing to do. Just look at me, you can’t impersonate this. These eyes, these ain’t contacts. You can’t buy these and put these in your eyes to think that you’re Bow Wow. These tattoos on my body, these is permanent. You can’t draw these on. It’s only one. It can only be one, not two but one. And that’s me. So how do I feel about being “Catfished?” Well, I feel honored. It’s dope and it’s flattering when someone wants to be you. And not only do they want to be you. In their mind, they are you. That’s crazy. But I like it. It’s free promo for myself, for BET, for ’106 & Park’.”
Then he invites Keyonnah and Dee Pimpin to come to “106 & Park” and meet him and discuss the whole thing.
“But we gon’ do it on my time though, on our network though and on our show. I mean ya’ll did take all our pictures from our show and used them. You want to holla at Bow Weezy, come to 106. “Catfish,” it is what it is.”
I’m sorry, was I the only one expecting a little compassion from Bow Wow instead of him taking this comical, yet sad situation to further promote himself? Did he not realize that he was not the one being catfished? Where was the message to the girl who actually believed she was meeting him, who had been a fan of his since childhood? Did he have any sympathy for her? Did he feel sorry that someone would use his image and images of his daughter to take advantage of another person? I guess not. Instead, he spent far too many seconds talking about his eyes and tattoos.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve seen Bow Wow up close and homeboy, though severely short (like 5’2), is very easy on the eyes. But listening to this video nearly turns my stomach. He sounds like he never matured past the days when girls were throwing their training bras on stage during those Scream tours. And I get it, you got a lot of play back in the day; and maybe still to this day, but where is the humility? You need it.
And on another note, can we talk about this grown man’s lack of knowledge about the company he actually works for? He seems to have taken issue with the fact that MTV used images from “106 & Park.” That’s right, they did. But Bow, I need you to do some research. Both MTV and BET are owned by Viacom. They didn’t steal anything. They just moved those images over from one server to the next. Stop it.
Bow Wow’s only saving grace is that perhaps he didn’t see the full episode and therefore couldn’t comprehend the devastation and embarrassment Keyonnah felt when she realized her online love was not the man she envisioned, she wasn’t even a man. Perhaps after he’s seen the episode, if he hasn’t seen it, he’ll have something more to actually say to her and not continue talking about himself.

“This Person Thinks It’s Cool To Talk About People All Day”: Ciara Claps Back At Bullying Internet Troll
If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably weren’t aware of the fact that people love to put down Ciara for some reason. Because she’s not selling records like some of the other big women in the game, people tell her she should sit down and stop making music. People have put together a petition in the past to force her to stop singing. And if that’s not enough, famous folks in the public eye have even tried to diss her, including one Good Girl Gone Bad who won’t be named. Yet and still, Ciara has taken all of these slights in stride. But yesterday, when one cyber troll got a little too comfortable, the singer had to put her in check.
The Twitter troll had quite a lot to say, hitting up Ciara’s page with questions and statements like:
She also ranted about Ciara messing with Bow Wow back in the day, and tried to make comments about her body. This was clearly someone looking for attention and looking to get Ciara to respond. And she did, going for the woman’s hair on social media (which we’re pretty sure wasn’t really her):
The troll tried to respond, but luckily, Ciara passed on trading further barbs and instead decided to let her followers know how frustrated she gets sometimes when people constantly disrespect her, and told them that cyber bullying? Not a good look.
I’m sure it definitely gets frustrating when folks are constantly trying to dog you just because you’re in the spotlight, and Ciara seems like a genuinely nice person–but we all have to stand up and say something at some point. What do you think of her and her cyber troll?
YAAAAAASSSS to this! That baby can “sang!”
Fantasia enlisted the help of her girl Missy to perform the popular single “Without Me” on 106 & Park last night. As my “YAAAAAASSSS” implies, the two women definitely killed it when they opened the show with the hit. Fanny’s vocals were on point, as were her background singers’ voices as they took over Kelly Rowland’s verse since she wasn’t available. And what can you say about Missy? Energy is always on 10.
Dressed in black leather with her background singers, and showing off her edgy haircut (the half-shaven haircut that can’t seem to bow out gracefully), Fantasia growled and danced and just had a gool ‘ol time on the main stage. When talking about the song’s inspiration later while being interviewed by Bow Wow and Angela Simmons, she said she was “feeling some type of way” about a certain somebody when she made it:
“When I recorded ‘Without Me,’ I was feeling some type of way that day. I got a little phone call and I remember going back into the studio like, ‘Yo, I need a record that’s gonna give me some club feel. I want to go a little hood, I want to get a little ratchet.’ You know what I’m talking about.”
She definitely had more fun on this track than any of the songs I’ve heard her put out recently, and it has been a huge club banger. Check out Fanny and Missy’s performance above and let us know if you were grooving as much as we were around these parts!
There are many times in our lives that we’ve done double-takes at the television screen for celebrities we haven’t seen or heard from in a while. “Where have you been?!” Some stars, who have so much potential, have come crashing down — or have remained stagnant — in their careers for some reason or another. But, we’re starting to see some fallen stars who are re-emerging into the spotlight and might possibly reclaim their spot on top. Here’s a list of celebs that we believe are poised for a come up–again.
The new 106 and Park is becoming the home of hilarious and sometimes awkward situations for 26-year-old rapper-turned-TV-host, Bow Wow. First, he had to interview ex-girlfriend, Ciara in front of a live studio audience and hew new boo, Future. Then, as if that weren’t awkward enough, Bow Wow and his new co-host and ex-girlfriend, Angela Simmons, have to interview CiCi again!
In more recent news, supermodel and media maven Tyra Banks recently stopped by 106 and Park and things got rather steamy between she and Bow Wow. If you recall, back in 2005 Tyra invited the much younger rapper to her show after he blabbed on Twitter about how much he wanted to kiss her and find out what her lips taste like. When he showed up for the taping, Tyra decided to grant his wish on national television, allowing him to kiss her. During Tyra’s recent appearance on 106, she surprisingly asked Bow Wow if he wanted to reenact the scene and he happily agreed.
“You trying to do the remix?” Tyra asked Bow Wow, who immediately dropped his microphone and starred into the camera.
Without saying anything else, Tyra seductively tossed her legs over his and kissed him again! And this time, it wasn’t a play kiss like back in 2005. After this kiss, the audience released a loud applause and Bow Wow blushed like a school girl.

No, really. The once dominant video countdown show that people once went out of their way to watch, or stood in lines forever to make an appearance on, is now a boring shell of its once colorful self.
In high school, I used to be thirsty to stay over at a friend’s house after school to see which one of my favorite musicians was going to hit the couch and chat with AJ and Free. I used to be very intrigued by their chemistry. Were they dating? Weren’t they? Did he just buy her a fur coat!? No matter what they were doing or how corny AJ sometimes appeared, they were great hosts, and they got all up in everybody’s business when they came on the show (including Bey and Jay during their early dating years).
When they left, things definitely went downhill, but the show still managed to dominate ratings, becoming the number one video countdown show over the now defunct Total Request Live on MTV. Julissa Bermudez and Big Tigger were interesting enough for the short time they held their position as hosts (Tigger’s voice alone keeps you hype), and when Rocsi Diaz and Terrence J finally turned up, they were a change some weren’t feeling, but had enough chemistry and talent to get fans and folks on their side (plus, it helps that Terrence is fine–even in person).
After the departure of Rocsi and Terence J, it would have been the perfect opportunity for 106 & Park to make an exit on a high note.
Instead, they’ve been beating a dead horse. They hired four new hosts (and two was already enough) in job needy Bow Wow, Miss Mykie, Paigion, and Shorty da Prince . And while they were a bit cheesy as a team, they were honestly doing their best on a show that was and is running out of steam. In the end, less than a year after giving these folks their jobs, BET fired everyone BUT Bow Wow so they could try and force sparks to fly between him and his ex-Angela Simmons. She’s cute, but that baby struggles to show real personality and enthusiasm, and she’s only appeared for the last few weeks. Here’s the new news that came out about the future of the show’s 15 hosts:
106 & PARK” is undergoing exciting changes. Angela Simmons will continue to guest host until the end of the summer. Bow Wow aka “Mr. 106 & Park” will continue as the lead host; Miss. Mykie, Paigion and Shorty Da Prince will no longer remain on the show. BET Networks is happy to have worked with these bright, young stars and will continue to support them and their upcoming endeavors.
When I found out that they were going to try and revamp things with Bow Wow and Simmons (they must have realized that Bow Wow and his ex-girlfriends bring a lot of attention to the show, i.e., his uncomfortable interview with Ciara not too long ago), I had to roll my eyes.
Please BET, let this show go already. While the network has made positive strides in its programming as of recent, anytime I flip past 106 & Park they’re showing videos by artists no one has ever heard about over the age of 12, as teenagers sit behind the hosts looking bored and tired. And that’s the way the audience feels at home. There’s no connection to the hosts. While I think Angela Simmons and Bow Wow are interesting people separately, I’m personally tired of seeing famous faces get jobs over more qualified people just because they supposedly have a following. Really, what grown woman is still crushing on Bow Wow!?
And if we can keep it really real, the era for the music video countdown show is dead. Especially when the same video you want folks to spend their high text message rates on to vote for can be viewed for free.99 on YouTube. It was a good idea at a time when you could watch artists make their videos on the network, and back when world premieres took place mainly on the show, but in the hours that one would wait to watch 106 & Park now, you could watch the video and many more on your phone. Plus, the Z-list celebrities they get to come on the show aren’t enough to get anybody to watch.
While 106 & Park might have at one time beaten MTV’s TRL during its heyday, and jump started some thriving careers (except for Free…girl, where are you!?), they need to make like TRL and all the other video countdown predecessors and be done already. It was fun while it lasted, but now it’s just a waste of good re-run and original programming space. Just saying.
What happens when two short men with big egos get together? A height measuring contest ensues. When Kevin Hart visited BET’s 106 & Park last week to promote his new film Let Me Explain the two tried to settle something once and for all. Who’s taller?
Bow Wow claimed the last time they had this contest Kevin cheated, trying to stand on a platform. This time things got real official when both men removed their shoes to get an accurate measurement. But you know Kevin; when Angela Simmons, the cohost for that day, started to state that Bow was taller, Kevin immediately started standing on his tip toes.
So we may never know who’s taller but what we do know is that there was a lot of trash talking going on during this little contest.
What do you think these two were saying to one another during this little contest?
