If you saw Lil Mo discussing her feelings about Keyshia Cole and Beyonce’s “Bow Down,” then you know she has a strong personality and a way with words. She’s witty. Kind of puts you in the mind of K. Michelle but more churched and more classy. She’s a riot. She sat down with the Breakfast Club to discuss her career, why she doesn’t rock with Keyshia Cole and her role on the new show “R&B Divas: L.A.” Check out a few excerpts from the interview and then watch the entire video on the last page.
On having her kids on the show “R&B Divas”
Lil Mo: “My baby son he’s 9 months, he has his shots.
Envy: Mo make him sound like a dog.
Lil Mo: No cuz you know people have their baby out, it be the size of my phone ‘here he is.’ If you don’t take that baby…it’s germs out here. It’s the flu. That baby could die! I don’t play that. So he has his shots, he’s of age. And I was like, yo these kids need jobs because…
Angela Yee: Wait, hold on so the baby gets paid too?
Mo: Yes. I have a great lawyer.
Her personality on the show
It got to the point. They had to add on extra weeks of shooting. I would shoot everyday. Listen, everything I am invited to, I take over. When I do radio, I don’t do nothing less than number one. When I do songs, as long as I got a machine and budget behind me, I can make top 40. When I do tv, you’re going to want to see me in my element. I only know how to dominate. That’s my personality. I don’t go in like ‘aaaahhh’ I don’t know where people get that from . But I made it my business to bring my staff with me. I had hair and makeup everyday . Clothes. I ain’t wear the same thing twice. I can’t speak for the other ladies.
Who’s your best friend on the show?
Honestly, everybody. I took everybody for their flaws and everybody. I’m my own best friend I didn’t sign on because of who signed on. I signed on because this is something I wanted to do because it’s great for promotion, visibility as well as my whole movement.
I talk to Chante Moore. You would never expect her to be like mad cool. Like cool like us.
If you were to ask any Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fans to use one word to describe the relationship between co-stars MiMi Faust and Joseline Hernandez, respect would probably be the last word you’d hear. Despite the tons of disrespectful offenses that we’ve witnessed Joseline commit against MiMi during the show’s first season, the Latin recording artist claimed during an interview with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club that she has a lot of respect for her music producer boyfriend’s baby mama.
On respecting MiMi:
“Seriously I don’t disrespect MiMi as people tink. I actually respect MiMi. I say a few things to her when she pisses me off. She calls me a prostitute and a [professional dancer]. She calls me a lot of names. So if I call you maid one time, you shouldn’t be mad.”
“I don’t really get involved in anything MiMi got going on. That’s his [Stevie's] baby mom.”
On if she’s ever participated in sexscapades with Stevie and MiMi:
“You gotta watch the show. Stevie you didn’t confirm anything. Did you confirm anything? Me and Stevie had threesomes before. I’m not saying no names, but we have threesomes.”
On if MiMi is her “type:”
“MiMi is beautiful.”
On calling Stevie out as down low a few months ago:
“I always curse Stevie out. I’m from Miami and that’s how we speak. No, he’s not gay. Everybody knows I’m not the only b***h that curse her man out. Ladies always curse they man out everywhere in the world. We not the first. We not gonna be the last. Yeah, if he pisses me off, if goes and [lays down with someone else] and I’m not there, yeah I’m gonna curse his motherf***ing a** out. I curse him out and I don’t regret it.”

Is It Really That Deep Though? The-Dream Says He Can’t Work With Keyshia Cole Again After “Bow Down” Comments
I guess The-Dream is feeling some sort of way about Keyshia Cole’s Twitter comments about Beyoncé’s song “Bow Down,” because he went on the radio this week and basically said that musically, he can’t rock with her right now.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club (Power 105.1), singer/songwriter let it be known that her opinions were for some reason, too disrespectful to warrant him getting in the studio with the “Trust and Believe” singer in the future. When asked by DJ Envy if he takes the people he works with and their beefs seriously, and if he could do a record for Cole since all that mess happened, he had this to say:
“Right now because of what happened, I can’t. I think she would respect why I can’t. That’s my family.”
When asked again if he she came calling would he say “Bow Down” and hang up (womp), he said no and replied, “You have a grown up conversation, like ‘Yo, you talking about my family.’
Surprisingly, Cole responded via Twitter of course, and respectfully made it clear that she will be fine without his musical contributions…trust and believe that! (had to do it.)
“Dream not writing any songs for me is fine…Im on my 6th album…He’s only wrote 1 song on 1 of my albums, which I did love, God Bless”
That song, if you were wondering, was from her latest album, Woman to Woman and is called “Hey Hot.”
The-Dream definitely doesn’t have to work with people he doesn’t feel like, but it’s just weird that so many adults take the things people say about Beyoncé so much to heart when SHE doesn’t even think it’s worth it to respond. Her man doesn’t even bat an eye as far as we can tell, so I would recommend Mr. Terius Nash quit playing and take whatever checks are coming his way and write those songs, because that drama is between them. As a wise…or silly man once said, “Your name is Bennett, and you ain’t in it.”
Check out The-Dream’s interview with The Breakfast Club on the next page, and the convo starts around the five-minute mark:
Earlier today, we told you about radio host DJ Envy coming clean over the air about his relationship with “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena. His confession appeared to be in response to Erica’s internet radio interview from last week, where she confessed to sleeping with the married DJ, justified it by saying he didn’t act like a “proud married man” and revealed that she would be dropping a tell-all book about the affair. Now today, in an interview that appears to be in response to Envy’s confession, the walking, talking, breathing contradiction told Vibe Vixen that Envy failed to inform her that he was married.
“DJ Envy’s definitely talking about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming “Love & Hip Hop”. After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long. I didn’t understand how he could take a vow as serious as marriage and take on a whole other relationship. It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me. It’s not fair to paint me out as a liar when he was leading a double life for many years. He’s never publicly come out with his wife until now because he’s ashamed of her. It’s no secret.”
She went on to claim that her upcoming book is not a tell-all about the DJ, but a story of her life.
“For me, I never spoke about it [the affair] because it was embarrassing as a woman. Of course, now I explain it in my book. I want to be clear: My book is not a tell-all. It’s just a book about my life and Envy is apart of my life.”
She also posted a public message to Envy’s wife on her Twitter page
Meanwhile Envy expressed via his Twitter page that nothing is going to come between him and his wife, not even Erica’s book.
It looks like this back and forth thing between Envy and Erica may go on for awhile.
It’s difficult to believe Erica’s claim that she didn’t know Envy was married considering how unapologetic and bold she came off during last week’s interview, but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time someone lied about their marital status.
What do you think?
Last week, we told you that “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena publicly confessed to having carried on an affair with Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club host, DJ Envy. Mena spilled the tea regarding her homewrecking deed during an interview, where she also revealed that she would be releasing a book this April that would recount all of the nitty-gritty details about the affair. She also unapologetically revealed that she didn’t find herself to be a homewrecker because Envy was unhappily married.
During his show this morning, Envy confirmed that he did in fact have an extramarital affair with the “Love & Hip Hop” star. He also confessed that the affair came during a challenging time in his life, reports The Jasmine Brand.
“A couple of months ago, I called my wife on air and asked her for forgiveness. I told her I needed change. I had a close relationship with God and I changed. Now, my wife, has been with me over 18 years. We’ve been married 11 years. The best heart that you’ll ever know. She’s that type of person that’ll change your life.”
“It’s a difficult thing to do. Sometimes being married it makes you insecure dude. I looked like I had everything. It was scary, my wife is gorgeous. She might me somebody that’s smarter than me. It made me insecure.”
“With being insecure, with me being weak. I was so insecure and so down..I started messing with somebody that was beneath me. A bird. Evil. A liar. Somebody that was desperate and its just so pathetic. I mean I didn’t have to feed this person no feed. I didn’t have to make her feel special, because she wasn’t. So that’s what it was.”
He also made it clear that he desires to work things out with his wife, but even if the marriage doesn’t survive, his family will.
“With the help of God, this situation has made my family tighter. Like tighter. I’m honest. I had to be honest with myself. And the hardest thing I had to do was tell my wife EVERYTHING. When I say everything. She looked at me so different. To look at my family. So you guys follow me on twitter. We’re good. We’re not great. I don’t know what happens from here. Now if we remain together, as a relationship, we’ll see. But as a family, nobody’s stopping us. I just want to tell you ‘I love you. And we’ll see what God has in store for us.”
Although Envy doesn’t actually utter Erica’s name, it’s quite obvious who he is referring to. It’s also interesting to note that his wife Gia will be making her debut as the newest addition to “Real Housewives of New Jersey” this season.

Remember when you were 10 and 11 and you thought you could do anything and there still might be monsters in your closet and magic was possibly real? Well, we have these movies to thank for that. When we were kids, we absolutely loved these flicks and as adults, we officially consider them our childhood faves.
Baseball commentator Scott Smalls reminisces about the summer of ’62, the year his family moved and he first fell in love with the game of baseball. It was in “The Sandlot” that he learned first-hand the meaning of teamwork and camaraderie. He also realizes everyone abstains from hitting a homerun over the sandlot fence because there’s a ferocious dog guarding the property. As luck would have it, the first time Scott “borrows” his stepfather’s autographed baseball without asking, he hits it over the fence and has to go retrieve it. A classic cult favorite, “The Sandlot” spawned three direct-to-video sequels.

Pshh, Crying? I Just Had Something In My Eye: Ryan Leslie Talks Getting Emotional On Stage And Losing Cassie To Diddy
Mega producer and Harvard graduate, Ryan Leslie recently paid a visit to New York’s Power 105.1 studio for a quite interesting interview with the Breakfast Club. The shows hosts, Angela Yee, Charlemagne and DJ Envy of course asked Leslie some pressing questions that many have been itching to learn the answers to. Charlemagne wasted no time asking about the dramatic triangle that Leslie found himself in with Cassie and Diddy.
“Man, I don’t think anyone of those people, with them not being here, would want me to broach that subject. I mean, I already had a conversation with him. [Diddy].”
He also revealed that he and Cassie had a conversation a little over a year ago. When asked what he thought of Cassie and Diddy’s relationship, Ryan replied:
“It’s life man, people have to do what they wanna do to be happy.”
He was also questioned about a viral video that has been circulating for some time now, which depicts a distraught Leslie crying on stage and burning a copy of the New York Post during one of his concerts.
“Actually, I didn’t cry on stage… I did burn the New York Post and I know what video you’re referring to… I live in a world of viral media. You know what I’m saying, that’s what I built my career on. When that video got more distribution, because everyone thought I was crying on stage, you know, that’s good for the actual message that I had in that video… I was wearing a leather cap on stage, you know, I’m sweating and whatever it was. You know what I’m saying? There was no crying on stage.”
In case you may have missed it, back in 2010, Leslie’s laptop was stolen. He publicly came out and offered $1 million to the person who returned his laptop to him. A man from Germany actually returned the laptop, but when it came time to pay up, Ryan was reluctant. The man took Leslie to court for the reward money and a judge ruled in his favor, ordering Leslie to pay up. After the judge’s ruling, the New York Post published a cover story on the case, where they referred to Ryan as a “rap weasel,” which is why in retaliation, he burned a copy of that issue on stage during a performance.
Peep footage of Ryan’s emotional performance below. Does he look like he was shedding tears or “sweating” like he said?
You can check out his full interview, as well as his infamous NY Post cover on the following page.
Surprise, surprise: Nicki Minaj is upset about someone not “supporting” her movement.
She was a guest on New York City’s Power 105 FM’s Breakfast Club morning show earlier this week and when the hosts didn’t seem completely prepared (or maybe they just didn’t care), Onika gave each of them their own personal tongue lashing. The moments were definitely a bit cringe-worthy and though you’d hope she was just playing around with them, Nicki no longer seems like the “fun” type of woman.
Fussing at DJ Envy for not having the right music:
“Why don’t you have the songs cued up though? I wanna hear ‘High School,’ I wanna hear ‘Hell Yeah,’ I wanna hear ‘I’m Legit,’ I wanna hear ‘Up in Flames.’ Y’all don’t even know these songs. You guys clearly don’t support me, neither does Clue, but that’s neither here nor there. Those are the songs that I would like y’all to play. I don’t understand why I’m coming to radio and y’all don’t even have my songs ready.[...]That’s the main focus of the kid coming to the radio. *banging her fists on the table* When the kid comes to the radio, the kid comes to hear her songs on the radio!…Ya’ll package ride stuff that got a big name on it. It’s other great records on there so let’s go.”
“How are y’all on radio, especially if you know an artist is about to come up to your show and you know, she just put out a video…what would make you not watch it?…I love you Angela because you and I have always had the best interviews. I don’t know what’s happening now that you are with these boys, but when you and I used to do interviews on your other show (Lip Service), you knew everything. Y’all either want to discuss something personal, or not discuss anything that I’m here to talk about. How do you not watch a video of an artist that’s coming on your show? Of the single?[...]It’s fake and y’all not prepared. If you’re gonna support me then you’re gonna watch stuff and prepare yourself and ask me relevant questions to what I’m promoting right now.”
It’s not breaking news that rapper The Game is a hot mess. I mean how much can you expect from a man who spits on women and throws them off the stage when they don’t show their tatas at a concert? Those are the very reasons I was so shocked to learn this man even had a girlfriend let alone a fianceé he was supposed to be marrying, but we all know how that went.
Regardless, The Game is getting ready to debut his new reality show, “Marrying The Game,” on VH1 and in an interview with The Breakfast Club he lightweight threw his relationship and the mother of his children, as he refers to her, all under the bus. Here’s are the highlights and why I initially thought Tiffney should be running for the hills, but then realized she’s just as ratchet as he is.
Was he and Tiffney’s wedding called off because of him cheating or because he’s always in rapper beef and fighting?
Infidelity. She doesn’t have problems with me doing what I do.
Should Polygamy be legalized?
I think that would be great. It would make it easier for women. The truth is every man cheats. Fat men, skinny men, basketball player, guy who can’t play. Nerds, smart men. It doesn’t matter.
Does he still cheat?
I’m not going to throw myself under the bus on this highly syndicated radio show, but every man cheats.
A woman is better off assuming exactly what I said. You’ll be better off that way.
How did Tiffney catch him cheating?
It wasn’t about getting caught, it’s just a woman’s intuition. Sometimes when you go missing for too long or too many hours, that window only opens so far. When a woman wakes up at 3 o’clock in the morning and calls your phone and you don’t answer she just knows.
If every man cheats, won’t that encourage women to do the same?
Then you know what’s going to happen. You’ll get called that word. (h*e)
Would you understand if a woman cheated on you?
I would never understand. You know the balance. It’s over with. That’s how it goes.
Is he nervous about showing his soft side on this new reality show?
No, I don’t really care. It’s not really that soft. On the reality show, I did everything right to the edge of getting us kicked off the air. I’m just doing what I do on everyday life. [Tiffney] wanted to be on a reality show. She’s a school teacher and she wanted extra money on top of what I give her which I thought was crazy but you know she dragged me down to the VH1 meetings and she was already seven meetings in when she lied to me and told me it was the first one. This had been going on for months.
Is he worried about Tiffney becoming a celebrity?
I told her I don’t know if she’s ready. She’s been hanging out with Evelyn and Shaunie. They went to a club called Graystone and they popped bottles and usually when she goes out it’s with me and I pull out the black card and we can go H.A.M. But they had to split it and it was like a $5,000 split between the three of them and when she came home she was in tears and was like I don’t want to go out anymore. This is my money.
Takeaway: These two are clearly a hot a** mess together.
Check out the video of The Game’s interview here. What do you think about him?
I just threw that in to jog your memory of what we’re talking about here: A grown a** man ashy-bare don’t care on a Yamaha trying to be sexay, i.e. Operation Fail.
Wyclef, on the other hand, would have us believe this is all one big joke. Now that I tend to agree with, except the joke is on him. Stopping by the Breakfast Club this morning, and asking to get lit up about his latest photo-op, which they’ve dubbed “Speedo-Gate,” the Power 105 team didn’t hesitate to ask him WTF was up with that image. Here’s what he said:
“First of all, the pic with the Speedos, that’s an old pic. I’m part of a bike club. This is an old photo shoot. I have photo shoots that I do without the entire year. The oil that you see that’s on my body and the grease that you see and the 14-pack that you see and the ashy leg that you see…
I didn’t want to grease the bottom on purpose…if you look on my Facebook, you’ll see similar pictures before that.
When you say to me do I regret. At 43 to look the way I look and feel the way I look is incredible. Everything I do I’m happy for what I do. I don’t regret anything. As serious as I am, I’m a clown, I love the humor of what I do–it’s funny. There’s going to be a calendar.”
All of that would be fine and dandy if this description didn’t accompany his pic when he put it on Twitter:
TODAY I AM 43 YEARS OLD! I look And feel 26! U cant keep a good Man down! Keep a smile when they want you to frown!
That negro was so serious when he posted that pic and now that people didn’t respond the way he was expecting he’s trying to clean it up. I can’t with this man, particularly when he tries to question Lauryn Hill’s character later. At one point the hosts asked Wyclef whether he thought Lauryn was crazy. He said:
First of all, I don’t think Lauryn’s crazy. There was a situation that I feel that she’s bipolar and that was more of what I expressed.
Mmmhmmm. Check out his full interview here. Shady thoughts?
