With the advent of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, it’s easier and easier for celebrities to stay connected with their fans 24/7. But while some celebrities are naturally more entertaining than others, the rest of the bunch can just be downright hard to follow either because of their bad grammar, boring content, or ignorant commentary.
Florida rapper Plies dropped out of high school to follow his dreams. He founded his own independent label with his stepbrother but Plies was hesitant to become a rapper and preferred to stay behind the scenes. Releasing several mixtapes and albums on his own Plies may be best known for his guest feature on Ludacris’ “Nasty Girl.” He may also be best known for getting nasty on twitter. Not only are his tweets raunchy, they’re grossly misspelled. His most recent PG-rated tweets include: I Gotta Stop Getting Drunk And Callin A Bihh Late Nite… I Be Out Dere 2 Bad” and “Chase Tha Money An Not Da Hoes…”

50 Cent is known for starting fights on Twitter, but he appears to have utilized Instagram to instigate his latest social media brawl. His target? An ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather, who goes by the name of Queen Princess. While it’s unclear triggered the Queens rapper’s attack, he kicked off his parade of insults by sharing a photograph of the woman and writing the words: “THOT Alert” onto the image. Oh, and for those of you wondering what a “THOT” is, it’s just another slang term frequently used to describe a woman who makes her rounds. In the image’s caption, 50 accused the woman of hooking up with both Floyd and his good friend Ray J.
“I GOT FLOYD, I GOT RAY J At the same damn Time,” he wrote.
The insults only continued when the 38-year-old rapper shared a photo of Ray J with a caption that read:
“@Floydmayweather don’t feel Stupid some of them belong on a TRACK that’s all”
To add insult to injury, 50 shared a message that Floyd recently shared via his Instagram page, which many believe is about QP.
“When you take a broke person out of the slums and give them a chance at bettering themselves, in due time, their true colors will eventually reveals itself. That’s why they say, leave trash in the garbage for bums to dig through because you will find yourself hanging around garbage so much, you’ll forget how rotten it is,” Floyd wrote.
Messy, messy, messy. 50 has got to be one of the biggest celebrity cyber bullies on the ‘net. QP has yet to respond to 50′s verbal lashing.
After several rumored breakups, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently confirmed that he is still engaged to model Shantel Jackson.
“Yeah, we still engaged. She’s my better half. Miss Jackson. She’s cool, she’s just my better half,” Floyd told Howard Stern.
Though he revealed that the engagement is still on, it doesn’t appear that a wedding will be happening anytime soon. Instead, he says he’s concentrating on pushing Shantel’s modeling career.
“We’re not really focused on marriage right now. I’m going to focus on taking her career to that next level. It’s about me being an asset, helping my better half.”
Interestingly, Floyd’s revelation comes just weeks after the five-division world champion’s ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, came forward claiming that he is definitely cheating on Shantel.
“Well, she [Shantel] shouldn’t be worried about me, she should probably be worried about the seven other women that he’s sleeping with… or more! When he was with me, none of that sh** was going on, that I knew of,” Josie said during an interview.

What Did You Think Of Tank’s Baby-Making Rendition Of The National Anthem At The Mayweather-Canelo Fight?
This Saturday night, some of everybody was spotted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to watch Floyd Mayweather put a hurting on Canelo Alvarez. Denzel Washington was in the audience, so were two of Mayweather’s lady friends apparently, and then there was Justin Beiber actually inside the ring with Mayweather when his win was announced (odd, right?).
But lets not forget the man who set the mood for the night with his slow jam version of the “Star Spangled Banner,” Tank. I’m sure I’m not the only one who was surprised to see the TGT super group member belt out the National Anthem inside the ring Saturday night in a performance that was like a combination of Marvin Gaye meets R. Kelly (you have to watch their performances of the National Anthem to understand.)
Either way, Tank definitely sounded good slaying a song most people can’t get through the first verse of — minus that “bursting the air” line and “let’s go Money team” shout out at the end. But hey, I’m not judging, if you want to turn the “Star Spangled Banner” into a baby-making hood classic, with a little quiet storm mixed in, do you.
Watch the performance below and the hilarious “I’m killing this ish” faces Tank makes in the video below. Thoughts?
From The Grio
Earlier this month, boxer Floyd Mayweather was in the news for his (expected) triumph over boxing opponent Robert Guerrero. And last week, Mayweather, no stranger to attention seeking, made headlines again, but in a way he probably never expected.
On Mother’s Day, he paid a visit to his ex Josie Harris, who is mother to three of his four children. Harris has also appeared on the reality show Starter Wives Confidential exposing her ongoing “relationship” with Mayweather, and on May 1 Harris gave an interview to Yahoo sports explaining that they’ve had “one intimate encounter” since he served time for assaulting her in front of their children.
This is also despite Mayweather’s engagement to another woman, Shantel Jackson, who lives with Mayweather. Anyway, Mayweather and Harris — recently it seems – wound up in a bed together. As he slept, Harris snapped a picture of him that was posted to Instagram on Mother’s Day.
This, however, is not when things stop being crazy. Mayweather’s fiancee, who of course heard about the pictures, if not saw them, has not made a public statement about her fiancé being pictured in the bed with his ex. But she did offer a response, of sorts.
After Harris’s picture with Floyd surfaced, Jackson posted a mini-photo essay on Intsagram, documenting her life with Floyd. The images included a walk-in closet the size of a garage, a series of expensive designer bags displayed (and protected) like precious artifacts in a museum, and a vintage luxury vehicle. Media Takeout interpreted her images as a way of saying to Harris, “you may have his [p*nis], but I have his pockets.”

‘I Didn’t Like It, So It’s Off:’ 50 Cent Brags About Pulling The Plug On ‘Starter Wives Confidential’
Yesterday, we told you that TLC mysteriously decided to snatch reality show, Starter Wives Confidential off of the air, after releasing only three episodes. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that one of the famous exes of the women on the show probably had something to do with it, but the ex that came forward was a bit surprising. In case you haven’t been keeping up with Starter Wives Confidential, the mother of 50 Cent’s son, Shaniqua Tompkins was cut from the show during the first episode, after being caught up in some legal red tape. The way it was portrayed on the show, she signed a book deal with 50 a few years back, which prohibited her from divulging any information about him or their relationship on the show. This is why when it came to possible exes who could’ve had something to do with pulling the plug on the show, 50 was the last person to come to people’s minds. But, he shocked us all when he took to his Twitter page to taunt the ladies from the show and take credit for having a hand in its cancelation.
Cast member and ex of Floyd Mayweather, Josie Harris, clearly flustered with 50 chose to fight back, claiming that the actual cause of the cancelation was that the show’s ratings were too low.

If you were a fan of TLC’s latest reality show, Starter Wives Confidential, you’ll be saddened to know that the network has decided to pull the plug on the rest of the season. While the exact reason why the show has been canceled hasn’t been revealed, it’s quite obvious that the exes of some of the ladies who appear on the show weren’t exactly thrilled about their dirty laundry being aired out once a week on national television. Not to fret though, the remaining episodes will be available on TLC’s website. The announcement was made by Funkmaster Flex’s ex-wife, Monica Joseph-Taylor via her blog, Mommy’s Dirty Little Secret. Check out her full statement below.
If you want to watch the remainder of episodes of Starter Wives Confidential you will have to go online to TLC.com.
Ask me why? ::Long pause::
Is it ratings? Is it a change in network direction…or all the outside drama?!
It’s no secret Starter Wives Confidential was plagued by legal inquiries and possible lawsuits from the beginning. Starting with Shanequa Tompkins being missing from all the episodes, her ex 50 cent allegedly had an agreement or contract with her of some sort that either prevented or made it difficult for her to partake in the show. I know before taping even began I was questioned about my posts relating to anyone connected with Lamar Odom. Luckily TLC had no control over what I do or can post so it became a non-issue. I never did find out who was putting pressure on them. Cut to the Lil Kim situation, one which I’m still confused about and can’t even confirm if there is a law suit.
Bringing a show with women of color to TLC we always knew was a challenge and I love that they believed in our stories and gave us a voice. A voice, honesty, love, a lot of drama, and a bit of ratchetness. (Usually required for any good reality show.)
I can only imagine there were a lot of people who were afraid what would come out on Starter Wives Confidential and as you saw from the first few episodes, the ladies were NOT holding back! Trust me it gets better and much juicier. But I digress. (I always wanted to say that in a post.)
I want to say that from the very bottom of my soul the support and love from viewers was more amazing then I imagined. Even the haters felt our show was genuine. I love that personally I got to not only bond with 5 amazing women but was allowed to show that not all celebrity wives sit home, model, or are simpletons. For the first time people got to know who I really am, if even just a little bit.
So it SUCKS that you have to watch episodes online but it beeeez like that sometimes. But make sure you still log onto http://www.mommysdirtylittlesecret.com everyday for the latest news, gossip, and info (c’mon y’all know me by now, why pretend anymore #endlesspromotion #bossb**ch #keepitmovin #letmefinish)
P.S. I realize I didn’t answer why we are not being aired anymore…you will just have to judge for yourself. ::Closes the shades carefully as she writes and presses send::

While many will probably be relieved to hear the news that another ratchet reality show has been booted off of the air, I can’t help but feel a bit sad for a cast member like Tashera Simmons, who avoided drama and was just utilizing the show as a means of supporting her children.
What do you think of the show being pulled off of the air?

Besides getting busy in the boxing ring, one thing everyone knows about Floyd Mayweather is that he loves making money and showing it off.
However, he’s now suing a New Orleans wine bistro for using his name as well as the Money Team name – his crew which includes Justin Bieber, his girlfriend Miss Jackson and possibly still 50 Cent – to lure in patrons and getting pretty big pay off during Super Bowl weekend.
In the lawsuit, Mayweather says The Wine Bistro advertised everywhere that he and the Money Team would be hosting a party with DJ Drama on February 1st. The problem is that Mayweather says neither he nor anyone from the Money Team agreed on any such appearance for the establishment. He is concerned that they made lots of money from his name and his fans will be upset with him for not appearing.
Part of the reason it seems Mayweather would not have ever appeared at this place is because he says he makes upwards of $100,000 per appearance and it’s very possible that The Wine Bistro would not have been able to afford that.
He’s asking that they not ever use his name and also for a lot of money, although the actual dollar amount has not been revealed.
You know what? We can’t even be mad at Floyd for this one. Sure, he’s cocky and extravagant but when your name is being used to make a profit and you don’t see any of it (not to mention you didn’t agree to it), it makes sense that he would take legal action. Many celebrities will take to their social media accounts to just debunk any rumors about them making appearances but they won’t take it any further if word that they will be appearing has already gone past their reach.
There’s been no response from The Wine Bar.
Messy, Messy: Josie Harris On Why She’s Still Sleeping With Floyd Mayweather Even Though He’s Engaged And Hit Her
Yeah, we didn’t understand that either so we went ahead and asked Josie about her confusing relationship with Floyd Mayweather at the “Starter Wives” premiere last week. Check out her explanation for still sleeping with her ex, who also happens to be engaged and out of jail after physically assaulting her. Thoughts?
Ready For Hollywood Exes 2.0? TLC Releases Trailer For New Reality Show ‘Starter Wives Confidential’
In case you were in need of another reality show to add to your rotation, TLC recently dropped a trailer for its upcoming reality show Starter Wives Confidential. If you recall, back in September we told you guys that the production of a show starring the exes of some entertainers whom most of us were quite familiar with was in the works. The show’s cast was said to include:
Zakia Baum: Ex-girlfriend of Jermaine “Maino” Coleman and mother of his son.
Cheryl Caruso: Ex-wife of mobster Phillip Caruso and mother of his two daughters.
Josie Harris: Ex-girlfriend of Floyd Mayweather and mother of his three children.
Monica Joseph-Taylor: soon to be ex-wife of Aston “Funkmaster Flex” Taylor and mother to his two children.
Tashera Simmons: Ex-wife of Earl “DMX” Simmons and mother of four of his children.
Liza Morales: Ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom and mother of his three children.
Shaniqua Tompkins: Ex-girlfriend of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and mother of his son.
The trailer depicts the women forming some sort of emotional support group as they bond over the struggles of single motherhood. Many seemed somewhat opposed to the show for pretty obvious and understandable reasons. We all realize that we don’t need another show depicting women in a negative light. Call me an optimist, but judging by the trailer, the show doesn’t look like it will necessarily fit into the drink-throwing, ratchet reality television mold that we’re used to. There appears to be a teeny tiny chance that it may go in a different direction.
Somewhere deep down inside, I’m hoping that this particular show will rise above current reality television standard and bring forth something positive. I’m hoping that instead of resorting to cattiness and bickering with one another after a couple of episodes, the ladies will rally around each other and positively represent single mothers. But again, this is reality television we’re talking about and I could be overly optimistic.
The show will premiere Tuesday, January 29th at 10 pm EST.
Check out the trailer on the next page and judge for yourselves. Will Starter Wives Confidential just be another ratchet reality show that negatively depicts Black women?
