Shoutout to Oprah for introducing a black family to this genre! Rozonno and Mia McGhee of Six Little McGhees had sextuplets in 2010, making them the first couple in Columbus, Ohio to pop out a half dozen babies at once.
Remember Diddy’s popular girl group Danity Kane from MTV’s hit reality show, Making The Band? Well, the ladies are rumored to be planning a reunion without their former hit-making manager. Yesterday TMZ spotted group members Aubrey O’Day, Shannon Bex, Aundrea Fimbres and Dawn Richards heading to a lunch date in L.A. with a new manager, who’s supposedly helping them out with the reunion.
“So I hear you guys are trying to make things work,” the cameraman said to the ladies.
“We don’t try to do anything,” Shannon shot back.
When asked if they were getting back together, they simply responded, “We’re having lunch right now.” Just before they made their way into the restaurant the cameraman asked if they were working with Diddy, which prompted the ladies to release sarcastic chuckles.
“Who’s that?” the groups always-outspoken problem child, Aubrey O’Day asked before they disappeared into the restaurant.
If you recall, Diddy publicly announced plans to disband the group back in 2009 during a reunion special. Interestingly, DK’s fifth member, D.Woods, was not present during the lunch outing, which could be a possible sign that she will not be participating in the reunion, but sources tell TMZ that a reunion is definitely happening. It makes perfect that the ladies would want to reunite, they were super successful as a group, scoring two certified platinum albums.
Representatives on behalf of Diddy have yet to respond to talk of the reunion, but something tells us that an icky legal dispute is brewing.
Turn the page for footage of the ladies heading to lunch. Would you support Danity Kane if they were to reunite?
Everyone knows it’s the beat that makes the song what it is. So it’s only right that we pay tribute to some of the hottest music producers in Hip Hop then and now. Check them out.
Mr. Mustard on the beat! I know some of you thought he said buss it on the beat, but he was building his brand dropping his own name. Very catchy! DJ Mustard has produced songs for Tyga — “Rack City” and 2 Chainz — “I’m different”. This guy right here knows how to get the party started.
It’s a partnership to advance the “Be A STAR” campaign, which encourages tolerance and respect among young people. We’ve got the PSA below, and you’ll notice Diddy’s t-shirt with the words “Invisible Bully” emblazoned across the front, from the line of a Brooklyn-based company that goes by the motto “Stand for something or fall for anything.”
Separately, there have been a number of celebs who have signed on to help with efforts to curb bullying. Here are a few other campaigns here and here, and Nicki Minaj talked about her experiences being bullied here. We’ve gotten to the point where an OC Housewife talks about being bullied by other women on the show. Has the amount of bullying increased or the discussion of it? Either way, what do we do to make it stop?
For many celebrities, a chunk of the bread and butter comes from side hustles as product spokespeople. And more companies are turning to a diverse group of celebs to serve as the face of their products. For example, we reported recently on new gigs for Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and astronaut Dr. Mae Jamison were just tapped as spokespeople for two separate major advertising campaigns. There have however been some notable campaigns using black spokespeople. We take a look at some of our favorite African-American celebrity spokespeople.
Whenever big events are taking place we’re always anticipating who our favorite celebs will bring as their dates. Just when we think it’ll be a model, they make us fall in love them even more by bringing their mamas instead. I always find it cute when they show mom dukes that she will always and forever be their leading lady. Video vixen, models, singers… fall back because the mothers are running this show.

Earlier this week rumors swirled that hip-hop bigwig Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sports Illustrated supermodel Kate Upton are involved in a “hot and heavy” whirlwind romance. Sources told Daily News gossip column, Confidential, that the pair were seen making out at club LIV in Miami Beach.
“They were kissing, they weren’t hiding it,” the snitch claimed before going on to say that the two disappeared into VIP and partied together until the wee hours of morning.
Sources also say that the duo were spotted “having dinner” at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel. The story didn’t seem far-fetched, as 43-year-old Diddy seems to have a thing for the youngins and Upton is only a few months shy of her 21st birthday. Diddy, however, came out last night stating that the rumors are false.
Kate also took to Twitter to deny rumors.
A representative on behalf of Upton also denied the rumored love connection to TMZ, saying that the two “barely know each other” and that they aren’t dating.
We imagine Diddy’s long-time rumored girlfriend Cassie Venture is letting out a sigh of relief. The two have been rumored to be carrying on an Ashanti-Nelly styled relationship for the past 5 years. Only last September did Diddy semi-confirm their coupledom when he Instagramed a photo of the singer with a caption that read:
“I’m a very lucky man #knowthat.”
So, what do you think of all of this?
Former Nanny Stings Kim Porter With Lawsuit, Alleges That Kim Abused Her And Used Drugs Around The Twins
Kim Porter may be in need of a “fixer” right now, as the mom of four has found herself in the midst of a scandal that has the potential to be quite damaging. TMZ reports that Dawn Drago, a woman who says she worked as Porter’s nanny from 2011 to 2012 is suing her for an undisclosed amount.
Let’s start with why Drago is suing. It is being reported that the former nanny alleges that Porter “verbally and violently” abused her. She also claims that Porter frequently chain-smoked marijuana around the twin daughters she shares with hip-hop mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, which sort of leads into why she isn’t Porter’s nanny anymore. Drago claims that she was fired last year after confronting Porter about the heavy amounts of marijuana being used in the house and complaining that all of the smoke was choking her.
The Combs children’s former caregiver went on to allege that marijuana wasn’t the only drug that Kim indulged in, but says that she also found coc*ine during the time she was employed by Porter. She recounted one occasion in particular, where she was driving the children to school and noticed that they had a “white powdery substance” all over them. According to Drago, the children had somehow gotten into ”a bag containing the powder, along with clear capsules, filled with another powdery substance in a bag in the back seat.” When confronted about it, Drago says Kim claimed the bag “contained medicine.”
Court papers were filed on behalf of Drago by attorney Patrick Reider.
A new Forbes list puts Diddy on top of a list of the wealthiest artists in hip-hop with an estimated wealth of $580 million. Most of his money comes from his Ciroc deal rather than music and, Forbes says, the vodka is riding a wave of popularity that would significantly add to Diddy’s wealth if Diageo ever sold the brand.
Coming in second is Jay-Z with $475 million and Dr. Dre is in third with $350 million. Perhaps the biggest surprise (to me, at least) is Birdman at number four, but it totally makes sense. His $150 million fortune comes from Cash Money/Young Money, which has artists like Nicki Minaj and Drake signed to it. And rounding out the five is 50 Cent.
According to Entertainment Weekly, all five of these artists were on this list last year, in this order. But all of them have more money this year, most significantly Dr. Dre who has $90 million more to kick around this year.
‘I’m Like, I Cant Start Crying At The Dance:’ Diddy Talks Getting Emotional During Recent Father-Daughter Ball
Earlier this week, the adorable photos of Sean “Diddy” Combs and his adorable twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie, looking Easter Sunday sharp hit the web. The captions that accompanied the photos revealed that Diddy and his girls would be attending their first daddy-daughter dance, which Diddy revealed that he was totally excited about. The 43-year-old hip hop mogul recently paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he chatted it up about fatherhood and how it has changed him. Check out some of what he had to say below.
On relocating to Los Angeles to be closer to the kiddies:
“I’m officially bi-coastal… I moved out here here now. My son goes to UCLA, all my kids live out here now. I have six kids. Clap for my six kids and I would like for you to clap for me because I pay for all of their tuition. My oldest son [Quincy] works for my network, Revolt, and he’s an aspiring singer. My son below him, Justin, he is at UCLA red-shirted, so hopefully this year he will hit the field. And then I have a son, Christian, who is 14 and three girls who are 6, long story.”
On getting a bit teary-eyed during his first father-daughter dance:
“It was my first father-daughter dance with the twins. They are fun but they will wear you out and then it makes you go home and give your wife or the mother of your children a hug and a kiss and some money and a car or something. Like, I was looking at the clock and it’s like, you know, it starts at , and its like 7 o’clock and I’m looking at the clock and I’m worn out and I’m like ‘I don’t know how I am going to make it to 9 and they’re dancing like me times a hundred. If you thought I was dancing fast there, it’s like little girls are just screaming and jumping on your back and it’s just so intense.
It’s been a part of my evolution, I had my teary-eyed moment. I’m like, I can’t start crying at the dance, I don’t want to embarrass my daughters. I’m going through something right now that no money, no success or no accolades that I’ve gotten can ever measure up to being able to enjoy the beauty of my kids, especially my daughters.”
On the twins being a handful:
“It’s just a little bit harder trying to watch twins. And they’re identical twins so it’s just like … [points side-to-side]. And they don’t really stick together, they actually go opposite ways. So I’m just like running around.”
On how he’s changed since having children:
To be honest, I work very hard for my kids to enjoy a great life and I make no apologies for being able to provide them with experiences that I’ve worked hard to experience. For me, I’ve just started to grow up and it’s been a little late. When you grow up in entertainment and you’re not working on or not really following any rules, once you have kids, [that changes.] I think for me, it was having girls because the boys could fall down the stairs and everything is going to be alright but the girls, it’s like a whole different line of questioning and focus. It really just makes you face reality. It’s just been great for me.
One thing that’s difficult to deny is that Diddy loves his kiddies!
