28-year-old supermodel Jessica White is slated to star in a new reality show on the Style network, reports Page Six. The lovely Ms. White is said to have shown up at The Doe Fund’s Sweet: New York event last Thursday with reality television cameras in tow.
According to reports, the Maybelline spokeswoman exuded fabulosity as she mixed and mingled with fellow celebrities such as Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey, Ramona Singer, Hesta Prynn and stylist Derek Warburton.
Whispers suggest that the former Victoria’s Secret model’s show will highlight her expanding modeling career and and venture into the music industry. White has been pursuing a singing career and is reported to have been working on putting together an album since last year. She semi-confirmed reports of a reality show when she tweeted a photo of herself from the event with Nia Crooks, Evelyn Lozada’s assistant who was brought up on charges after slapping Jennifer Williams last year.
#filming #family #2013 #takingover @itsmeputtie,” White tweeted.
We reported on a remotely similar story a couple of weeks ago involving former Victoria’s Secret angel, Selita Ebanks, who was also said to be filming a reality show and gearing up to release a single, following news of her breakup with longtime boyfriend, Terrence J. I suppose we shouldn’t be shocked by this news as singing has been a rather popular trend among models for quite some time now. We have Kenya Moore’s “Gone with the Wind Fabulous, the two singles from Love & Hip Hop girls Erica Mena and Tahiry Jose. And let us not forget Tyra Banks’s attempt to dabble in the world of music, which we were exposed to during Cycle 2 of America’s Next Top Model.
I’m sure there will be people in opposition, but in my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with any of these ladies attempting to expand their brands by trying something new. What’s the worst that could happen?
No further details have been released on Jessica’s reality show, but we will certainly keep you posted!

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is: Ne-Yo’s (Almost) Baby Mama Threatens To Sue Him For Talking Too Much
Being dragged to court by baby mamas is no strange occurence to men in the entertainment industry. In fact, it almost seems as if having baby mama drama is some type of clause that is built into their talent contracts. But, having drama with an almost baby mama? Well, that’s something new; something that singer and songwriter Ne-Yo can tell us all about.
TMZ is reporting that a woman named Jesseca White is threatening to sue her ex-boyfriend, Ne-Yo due to issues relating to a child that the two almost had together. How do two people almost have a child you ask? Well it seems that back when Jesseca and Ne-Yo were an item, Jesseca gave birth to a child whom Ne-Yo believed was his. In 2009 he found out that it wasn’t, but only after paying Jesseca $575,000 in a settlement agreement and signing the baby’s birth certificate did she confess that the child wasn’t his.
Considering how ugly the situation was they both agreed to a confidentiality clause, which prohibited them from ever publicly discussing what happened. They both did a pretty decent job upholding their ends of the bargain, until now that is. Ne-Yo recently opened up regarding his bout with baby mama drama during his September 2012 VH1 Behind The Music special where he expressed how distraught and heartbroken he was over the paternity nightmare.
Since the airing of the show, Jesseca has hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred and is threatening to file a lawsuit against the singer claiming that his revelation during the special was defaming to her because it depicted her as “a harlot who lied, broke his heart and then vanished” and has subjected her to much ridicule and harassment. A letter from the attorney also claims that Jesseca has been so distraught and mentally tortured over Ne-Yo’s comments that she has been unable to work, had to file for state aid and is even suffering from intense “nausea, vomiting and hair loss”.
Catch this though, she’s claiming that she hopes she and Ne-Yo can settle things amicably in court, otherwise she has no choice but to sue him.
This is probably one of the most off-the-wall things I’ve ever heard, but I’m sure it isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Honestly, it seems like she should be the one paying Ne-Yo, not the other way around. But, a binding contract is a binding contract and if Ne-Yo actually agreed to never go public with the information, then he just may have to pay up.
What do you think? Is Jesseca completely delusional and looking for another come-up or was Ne-Yo wrong for publicly discussing the situation after he agreed not to?
Hey fashionistas! Looking for some style inspiration? Or better yet, looking to skewer the style choices of some of the biggest names in Hollywood (or black Hollywood at least)? Why, you’ve come to the right place m’dears. Let’s take a look at who was killing it on the red carpet and for Fashion Week, and who could have done a lot better, and needed to be stopped.
Somebody loves leather! Actress Tika Sumpter arrived at the Urbanworld Film Festival for a screening of “Being Mary Jane” in NYC in an all black (and gray) ensemble and a bright red pout. She wore black leather (or pleather) bottoms with a sleeveless peplum leather top, and accessorized with pointed toe suede booties and a gray and brown newsboy cap. Don’t forget about that black bag with its chain link detail, and I’m digging the bone-straight hair. All in all, I would have mixed up the materials and probably not done leather on leather, and instead maybe tried some fly printed pants to get some extra color in there. She doesn’t look bad, but I was definitely looking for a bit more excitement (we couldn’t even get a bright bag?). I would pass on an ensemble like this.
There are many religious, moral or personal reasons why a person would choose to abstain from sex for a certain period. Whether that period lasts for a night, a year, until marriage, a lifetime or somewhere in between depends upon the person.
Think Like a Man actress Meagan Good is only the latest in a string of celebrities who have claimed they were celibate at one time or another.
Are these celebrities on to something? Have they discovered that even in a nation (and industry) notoriously obsessed with sex, that the best Kama Sutra position may be “legs closed”? Did they realize that the most intimate relationship of all can be had without this most intimate act? Is celibate the new sex?
I’m not certain, but one thing is for sure: There are definitely some surprises on this list!
If blue wasn’t already your favorite color, these celebrities rocking the bright yet subdued shade might help you change your mind on that shade of pink you were thinking about. Let’s take a look at three of our favorite celebrities wearing some blueberry, sky and baby blue joints all over the country this week to determine who should feel good and who really should feel blue about their style choices.
Oh, Jessica White. She’s such a pretty woman, but I don’t know what it is about her fashion choices that just always throws me off. The spokesmodel wore this extravagant blue gown to the Dream Big! The Jacob’s Cure gala in NYC on Wednesday. While the leggy model is rocking the gown well, we’re not sure we like the gown at all. The strapless dress was doing an ombre design all over with beading covering it. And if that wasn’t interesting enough, she had a split that literally came up to her ladybits. The nude peep toe pumps, some studded earrings and a few rings were her only accessories, and she did a bright red lip and pulled back hair to tie everything together. I don’t know what it is, but this dress just comes off sort of cheap looking to me (why a black zipper when nothing else is black on the dress?). And maybe it’s even the weird tiered sash at her waist. Body wise, she looks great, but I can’t do this look. Sorry, girl. Stop.
Since Pilar Sanders, estranged wife of Deion Sanders, and her homegirl allegedly assaulted Deion, I guess we can now add her to the “fight club” list. *cues Crime Mob* “Yeah we knuckin’ and buckin’ and ready to fight…” Maybe this is the song that went through the minds of many of our female celebs who have a reputation for…releasing frustrations. They throw electronics, bottles and of course, good ol’ fists. I’m not condoning any of it; I’m just giving you a visual a reminder of who you should be ready for just in case they cross your path!
You know what time it is. It’s about to be the weekend, so we have to do a rewind on some of the most fun, eclectic and busted outfits of the week. Shall we begin?
While at Madison Square Garden to cheer on her man Melo, La La Anthony showed up in boy-meets-girl ensemble that was a mix of prints and textures. She wore a sheer Alexander Wang top (sweater actually) that mixed orange, black and white. On her feet were some snakeskin Louboutins, peeking underneath leather pants. While I think she might have been going for a casual but cool ensemble, this mixture of looks is…the most. I’ll pass, but if they were worn separately I’m sure it would be hot. No thanks though.
Girl, where have you been!? Singer Chrisette Michelle finally brought herself out of the house for a Petals-N-Belles Limitless event in NYC. She wore this body-hugging dress with snowflake-like designs and some intricately placed sequins. On her feet were some taupe peep-toe pumps with floral detailing at the front. She came to the event with her quilted purse, a few funky rings, and a fresh, close cut. Don’t forget the pink lip! The dress actually doesn’t bother me because it fits nicely, but the shoes don’t work with it. And with the pink lip…I don’t know, there’s a lot going on. I’ll take the dress, but pass on everything else. Unless that’s a Chanel bag of course!

Excuse my language, but what in the Purple Rain shirt wearing, lace loving, baby doll hell is she wearing!?
When you think about getting dressed up for a night at the illustrious Carnegie Hall, I guess I just assumed most people would want to rock some sort of gown or upscale dress of some sort. But no, when model Jessica White thought about going to Carnegie Hall for Jay-Z’s much lauded performance on Monday, she opted for something see-through. Like, all over. This lace jumpsuit with its many frills, high neckline and designs could have actually rivaled all the hoopla over Beyoncé’s arrival back into the public eye after birthing baby Blue. She kept it pretty gangster in the outfit, opting not to cover her nipples with some sort of tape (or a bra for that matter), and rocked white underwear underneath just to be ten times bolder.
On top of that, White wore a big gold and white belt, a small black purse, and strappy, chunky white heels. The hair stayed bone straight and the lip was an electric red. I would applaud her for trying to be brave, but there’s just something a little tacky about trying to be THIS daring at Carnegie Hall. She’s gorgeous, we can clearly see that, but I don’t think anybody really needed to see everything she was given by God (and by whoever she got her underwear from). It’s like an ’80s ensemble that could have gone right in the ’80s, but just was a little too much for today. Nice try Jess, but next time, at least put a bra on. Or better yet, just put some clothes on in general, boo.
What do you think of her look for the event at Carnegie Hall?

It was only a month ago, almost to the day, that model Jessica White showed up at Beyonce’s PULSE launch party showing off a huge MAUBOUSSIN diamond engagement ring. Now, 40 days later, Page Six is saying the engagement is off.
It took the media a hot minute to find out Jessica’s new boo was British banker Bruce DeWitt when she showed off the piece of jewelry every woman dreams of on the red carpet that night. We knew her romances with Sean Penn and Terrell Owens had long been over, but this relationship was much more hush hush, and even surprising to her friends—until, of course, we saw the massive ring and the twitpic from Jessica which read, “Tell him to put a ring on it! Smiling.”
At the time, friends said the two wanted to get married as soon as possible, but it doesn’t appear that this will be happening at all now that the engagement is off. Surprisingly, no official rumors seem to be circulating about possible causes, but we know the media is not kind to pretty women with multiple “failed” relationships. Some people are already quietly speculating that the Maybelline spokesmodel is another victim of the “Halle Berry factor.”
Poor girl. I hope her camp puts out a comment soon.
Are you shocked the engagement is off, or did you see this coming?

Love is a beautiful thing, especially black love. When it works, (see Will & Jada) it can be a source of inspiration, and when it doesn’t, well, it can become a spectacle (see Whitney & Bobby). Some pairings just work (Jay-Z & Beyonce), and some just clash , even when the greater public can see it and the couple can’t. (Michael Jackson & Lisa Marie Presley)But that’s the nature of love! So in the spirit of Valentine’s Day (kind of), let’s take a look at a few of the couples in Hollywood that didn’t give us “awwww” moments, but rather, had us scratching our heads, all in the name of love.
