These are the times we need to applaud the video vixens.
Former video vixen Melyssa Ford, who has long since turned in her video attire, recently joined a major real estate company. According to Allhiphop.com, Ford has joined Blu Realty Group, a full-service luxury real estate company in Nww York. She’s joining the team as a real estate broker so you know she’s going to use her contacts in the entertainment world to bring big dollars to the company.
Blu Realty is a very serious player in the real estate industry. Owned by Chadad and Moshe Balalo, Blu Realty closed over $100 million in property sales last year. That’s huge for a somewhat small company.
Ford, who has a degree in Forensic Psychology, took an intense three month class at Blu Realty which included training from a real estate teacher and mentoring from the owners.
Chadad Balalo is very eager to get started:
“We are extremely excited to have Melyssa on board with Blu Realty. Ms. Ford will add a high net worth clientele base to our already diverse client list in New York.”
Ford has actually already help them close a $15 million deal in New York. It looks like she is ready to take this new career by storm!

We knew Vanessa Bryant could get up to half of Kobe’s money when she filed for divorce from him in December, and according to reports that’s exactly what she got.
Vanessa is reportedly walking away with $75 million—half of Kobe’s worth— plus three homes (mansions) in the divorce settlement. The first home is the one which she, Kobe, and their two daughters lived in, the second is a house her mother currently resides in, and the third is a property that was just completed after a two-year construction. Initially, Kobe was said to be moving into the new place, but it seems he’s “homeless” at the moment.
Nothing appears to be settled yet regarding the children. Vanessa is said to have requested joint custody of their daughters Natalia and Gianna but she also asked that Kobe get visitation rights, suggesting she wants them in her care the majority of the time. From the looks of the property settlement, Kobe seems to be going down without a fight so I’m sure she’ll get her way with the kids as well. She can certainly afford to take good care of them.
What do you think about Vanessa’s clean sweep?
