Tara Wallace

If “Love & Hip-Hop” is nothing else, the reality show is beyond messy. In season four we were introduced to former rapper Peter Gunz and his artist Amina Buddafly. The chemistry between the two was obvious and it was clear Gunz was dipping out on his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two sons, Tara Wallace. But we soon found out afterwards that Gunz and his artist were actually married. And when Tara found out about their union, her on-and-off relationship with the “Uptown Baby” rapper, which actually began when with her being the other woman, was over. Amina is currently pregnant with her manager’s baby.

For many Mexican Americans living here in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a day to commemorate their Mexican pride and heritage.

Taboo from Black Eyed Peas

As one fourth of the super group Black Eyed Peas, rapper Taboo has become an international superstar. Born to a Mexican American father and a Native American mother in Los Angeles, Taboo, real name Jaime Gomez, joined the group to replace one of its members. Black Eyed Peas went through a couple name changes and singer Fergie was brought in as the fourth member in time for their third album. Taboo began working on a solo album in 2008 but has said it will take some time to get his solo career off of the ground.

“You Are A Disgusting Heartless Human Being”: Cassie Blasts Blogger Sandra Rose For Negative Comments

Cassie and Sandra Rose

Cassie and Sandra Rose

Cassie is sick and tired of being sick and tired of people talking crazy about her. She took to Instagram recently to call out blogger Sandra Rose about comments she made about Cassie being physically ill recently. The singer was dealing with a stomach bug and congestion and shared her home remedy with her Instagram followers, which included mixing Gypsy Cold Care tea, ginger tea and Makuna Honey together. Seems harmless, right?

Well, Rose posted on her site about this sickness Cassie was dealing with, and decided to compare Cassie to socialite Peaches Geldof, who just passed away this month at the age of 25. The cause of her death is still unknown. Not sure where the connection comes in just because Cassie wanted to make a home remedy, but this is what Rose said:

Nurses and doctors study long hours burning the midnight oil for years just so we can earn a professional degree that tells a state we are qualified to be licensed. Then along comes clueless folk like pseudo singer Cassie Ventura who has been sick for 3 days with Ebola-like symptoms. Instead of going to see a doctor, she calls Boomqusiha from around the way who advises her to swallow a concoction of herbs, plants, citrus fruit and marijuana seeds to cure what ails her. Then we wonder why young people like Peaches Geldof suddenly drop dead? #RIP.

Cassie spotted this and couldn’t hold her tongue. She took to Instagram to say this to and about the blogger:

@sandrarose … A friend of mine sent me a bulls**t article you wrote about me today. At first I laughed it off as always but then, at the end, you compared me taking care of my sickness to Peaches Geldof passing this week, asif that’s my fate (God rest her soul). YOU are disgusting. THE POOR GIRL JUST PASSED!! Let her rest in Peace and don’t wish death on me. You are not a journalist. You are an angry little girl or old maid, who knows? I’m assuming you aren’t getting paid and maybe that’s why you sound so angry?? If you are getting money off of that over opinionated blog, someone needs to start a petition for you to no longer have a job. When I looked through more of your posts I realized that you just sound like you’re PMSing or maybe it’s menopause Whatever it is, I think it’s in your best interest to go see someone about it and keep my name off of your disgusting blog. What really f**ked me up was the fact that on your twitter you brought up @dkbwear who just passed as well, it wasn’t that you reported it, it was your delivery. YOU ARE A DISGUSTING HEARTLESS HUMAN BEING and all I can do is pray for you. How sad it is that you choose to live in such a negative light. I always ignore the bulls**t but you touched on some topics that are just so wrong. You don’t deserve an opinion about society anymore. Next time I see you lingering in Atlanta club like a creeper, I’ll tell you to your face.

Sadly, Cassie aimed wrong on Instagram, tagging an innocent bystander instead of the actual blogger Sandra Rose…but you get where she was going with this.

This isn’t the first time Rose has had famous folks respond to her commentary on them. Both Rihanna and Chris Brown have gone head-to-head with her on Twitter, as well as Tamar Braxton and more.

What do you think of Cassie’s response to the post?

Cassie and Diddy

Rumor had it Diddy and Cassie were dating well before they were ever photographed together. Caught up in a love triangle with Cassie and his children’s mother Kim Porter, Diddy snuck around with the “Me & U” singer showing up at the same events but making sure to never arrive or leave together. Recently the two have been more open about their relationship in public and on social media. Diddy has posted photos professing his love for Cassie and last month sparked rumors when he put up a picture of an engagement ring with the caption, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like!” he added. “I just wanna Mk you smile :) #takeDat!”

Technology can be a beautiful thing because it provides a connection between a celebrity and his or her fans, but in the wrong hands, technology can expose a star in ways they never intended. Unfortunately, these 15 celebs found themselves in the middle of nude photo scandals.

Kanye West

He may be Kim Kardashian’s man and baby daddy now but a few years ago, Kanye West was a single man on the prowl. Back in 2010 the “All of the Lights” rapper allegedly snapped a picture of his family jewels and sent it out to multiple women. West wasn’t completely unclothed in the photo. He had on a pair of boxers but his private part was provocatively exposed. The owner’s natural response was to shop the nude pics to various media outlets for the highest price.

“Starting My Own Empire Would Be Great”: Cassie Talks Loving Diddy, Her Passions And If Mini-Cassies Are On The Way

In 2006 we fell in love with Bad Boy’s leading lady Cassie  when she released her summer hit “Me and U.” Lately we’ve mostly only seen the singer cuddled up under hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs  or traveling the world but we didn’t have much insight into her career or life goals until now.

Vibe Vixen recently sat down with the New London, Connecticut native who told them she grew up in a tight-knit family in the suburbs, was educated in private school, and was supposedly never the “it” or “mean” girl.

“I always wished I was cool and could’ve been a troublemaker, but I was actually a pretty decent kid,” she told the mag.

Although she’s grown from her sexified tomboy image to a sophisticated beauty with edge, Cassie  is still humbly the girl next door with hidden sex appeal. Here she shares with Vibe Vixen  her passion for DJing, if she will have any mini-Cassies on the way and her relationship with the original Bad Boy.

How do you stand your ground as a woman in a male-dominated industry?
As a woman in the industry, there are so many things you’re up against. If you’re pretty, you’re too pretty. If you’re talented, you’re too talented to the point where people don’t want to listen to your music. And I’m not talking about Beyoncé, who is way up there. I’m just talking about people who are making the music that they love. It’s a confidence thing. It doesn’t matter what you bring out as long as you believe in it and back it up. That’s something that took time to learn. I would second guess myself a lot.

The first time I stepped out of the zone of standing behind somebody and being worried about giving my opinion was when I did “The Boys” video with Nicki Minaj. It was a trying experience, putting looks together with my team and being very, very involved and saying, “No, I’m not wearing that. This is not happening. This is how I want my hair and make-up.” That was the first time I really stood my ground and when everyone looked up, it was like “Girl, you really killed it.” It’s knowing what I want, being aware and sure of it. And not being phased by all the other bull that goes down.

There’s a saying, “You are the company that you keep” and you’ve been linked to super-talented musicians/businessmen. What’s the key to maintaining a relationship when both parties have established careers?
The key to maintaining any relationship—be it a romantic relationship or a friendship—is honesty and communication. I travel so much, host parties and I just signed a new deal with Skam Artist, who predominantly DJs in the same bookings that they do at different parties. It’s New York, Chicago, Vegas so I’m constantly going.

So you’re going to start mastering the turntables now?
I hope it gets to that. I’ve been slowly but surely learning how to DJ. I’m really interested in learning how to do the turntables and I really want to do both dance and hip-hop. Dance is easier actually to mix when you’re DJing, but old school hip-hop and finding the real beat in there is way more difficult.

Has Diddy inspired you to run your own empire? Was there an important business lesson you learned from him?
Absolutely. Just being around him is a completely inspiring experience. Starting my own empire would be great. I’m trying to figure that out. I’m still working with Cassie Enterprises right now but I think that would be something I would love to do.

Being a model for more than half your life, describe the moment you realized your looks are a means to getting what you want, whether it was attention from a certain guy or landing the dream job.
It’s so funny for you to even say “attention from a guy” because I had my funny-looking stage. I think everyone had it as a kid. I remember every star, every birthday wish blowing out a candle, I would always wish boys would like me because I used to get made fun of a little bit.

Did you ever blow out birthday candles or wish on a star to be with Diddy?
[Laughs] No, no, no it was always just for boys to like me. That was it. The other day I did. Have you ever been to the Joshua Tree in Palm Springs, just outside of Palm Springs?

Is there anything else that you feel like you need to conquer or do you feel like it’s time to settle down a bit and maybe have a couple mini Cassies?
Oh my god! Me and my friends are always talking about that. Maybe some mini Cassies or Cassiuses coming up. I’m not really sure. My new thing right now is I’m going to get back into some acting. I did Step Up 2 a while ago and I enjoyed being on set so I think I’m going to start taking classes, work with an agency and seeing where that goes as well. I’m working on a sophomore album currently so hopefully things start to move.

Run Cassie! 43-Year-Old Diddy Tells Ladies Of “The View” He’s Still Not Ready For Marriage

I think we can all agree that when it comes to Diddy, not only is he about his bread, but he’s also definitely about the ladies. But in the last few years, it seems that Sean Combs has decided to slow himself down. The mogul and father of five (six if you include him being the informal stepfather of Kim Porter’s son, Quincy) has been in a relationship with Cassie for the last couple of years. While they haven’t been as open about their relationship as he has been in the past (remember when Diddy and Kim Porter were on the cover of Essence?), they definitely have the lovey-dovey social media message thing on lock. She’s sent him more than a few Instagram posts professing her love, but is Diddy ready to take the next big step with her (or any other woman)? He told the ladies of The View (Barbara Walters specifically) that he’s not…

“It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day just be ready for that.

The thing is, I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves. I’m brutally honest with myself. If I’m ready for that responsibility, I think in due time…I don’t want to get married and not make that woman be the best. I’m a big baby in a grown man’s body. I’ve been close to it and when I’m ready I’ll make the announcement, but when I do it, I’m doing it forever. Know that.

One think I want to add to that is, I think a lot of people put too much on marriage and not enough on happiness. I’m happy, anybody that is in my life is happy…at least some of the days [laughs]. I just want to be happy and I think it’s important for you to protect your happiness and to love yourself, because then you can love other people the right way.”

He definitely makes some deep statements, especially the part about loving yourself first. But I do hope that Cassie is aware that she shouldn’t be expecting too much too soon from her man. He’s not sure if he’s ready for all the responsibilities that come with the title of husband (sounds similar to what Oprah said about marriage), and we can respect that. At least he’s honest. Check out his answer to the question by watching the clip of that episode over at the show’s website. The conversation about marriage occurs at the 19:00 mark.

Gotta Man That I Think I’m Gon’ Love Forever: Keri Hilson And Her Baller Boo Serge Ibaka Get Cute And Cuddly At ATL Club

While we were bumming it up for the weekend catching up on movies, a few reality TV stars and a few of Atlanta’s finest entertainers put on their tallest stilettos and headed to Privé nightclub this past weekend. Among those cheesing it up for the camera included Keri Hilson and her Oklahoma City Thunder playing boyfriend Serge Ibaka (who is super fine). The two were snapped getting extra cute, close and cozy in the club. They danced, they had some drinks, and she showed off her svelte frame in a pair of super-tight white jeans and a printed crop top. Maybe it’s the alcohol in her system at that time, but doesn’t Keri just look the happiest she has in a while? A good man can do that to you! They are very cute and seem to be head over heels in love, am I right?

Check out more pictures of the two cuddled up lovers in the club, along with snaps of a bra-less Joseline Hernandez (why, girl, why??) and her man Stevie J, Cassie, Toya Wright and Tiny, and Mimi Faust of all people painting the town red in the ATL on the next page:

Speaking Of People Who We Don’t Know Why They’re Famous…Cassie Gets Spread In Esquire

Cassie Esquire

The irony right?

Just yesterday we were talking about not knowing why Cassie is famous and here she is with her own spread in Esquire magazine — guess they know. For the June/July issue, the mag chats with “The jokester” who they introduce with the following:

This is Cassie, a 26-year-old model and R&B artist. Just Cassie? “It’s not like I’m Madonna,” the Connecticut native says. “I’ve been Cassie my whole life.” But why no last name? “People would meet me and say, ‘What’s your stage name?’ ‘Well, Cassie.’ ” (Her last name is Ventura, by the way.) She was just Cassie even before she met fellow one-namer Diddy, who was something of a mentor during production of her first album, the familiarly named Cassie, in 2006. The follow-up is due later this year. Aside from that, she appeared on Nicki Minaj’s 2012 single “The Boys,” and this April she released her own mixtape, featuring tracks with Rick Ross and Wiz Khalifa. And no, she did not call it Cassie. (It’s RockaByeBaby.)

Guess that’s all we need to know. Here are the pics of Diddy’s beautiful boo in the mag, looking very Rihanna-esque in her risque see-through leotards. What do you think?
