mimi faust & stevie j

Mimi Faust‘s advice to Stevie J is pay his child support. Then, every source of his income wouldn’t had been given a subpoena.

OK, it was more like blasting him than advising him.

But the point is, Faust isn’t too fond of Stevie J anyways.

Apparently, she had Mona Scott Young produce her sex tape — which is basically a porno — to get back at Stevie J.

She dished to Hip Hop Enquirer about how she feels about Stevie J’s ongoing child support case.

She threw up her hands, laughed and said, “he made his bed” — referring to the possibility he could go to jail for not paying ex, Carol Antoinette Bennett.

He owes Bennett more than $1 million in back child support.

But Faust said, she needs him around.

“I got one though. I got one. So I really need him out so he can do what he needs to do for that one,” she said.

Nevertheless, by Faust’s lack of silence when asked how he’s doing with their daughter, indicated he’s not doing much.

But that doesn’t mean Stevie J won’t jump to Faust and his daughter’s defense when need be.

mim ifaust daughter,

Stevie J asked the guy who posted this to Instagram, “where u at homie.” The guy said, “hell naw Stevie J! You ain’t having me killed!! haha.”

kanye west, common

Kanye West and Common are not teaming up for the typical rap collaboration.

But instead, they are teaming up to help create 20,000 jobs for unemployed Chicago youth.

Their respective charities Donda’s House Inc. and the Common Ground Foundation are campaigning to see these jobs created for the youth.

They are working with Chicago Urban League — focused on the betterment of black communities.

Common shared Chicago has a huge unemployment problem especially among Chicago youth.

He wants to provide the funds and resources to make these jobs happen. Therefore, Chicago youth can avoid a life of crime.

“Obviously, one of the biggest reasons our kids are going through what they’re going through is because of poverty,” he said.

He continued with, “I was doing an event in the neighbourhood and there were some kids… and I said, ‘Man, what do y’all really need? What’s gonna stop this (poverty)?’ And they were like, ‘We need money. Man, if we could work.’ They want a chance.”

But don’t think music is out of the question.

West and Common are planning a Music Festival to help raise funds for the cause.

The festival will be September 20 and 21.

On what began to unravel Mariah’s friendship with Quad:

“She felt like they made her look like my do-girl or my puppet and she felt like she was a little bit subservient and she didn’t like that. Instead of realizing that I didn’t control that, I feel as though she took it out on me…we bumped heads on that. So she started treating me a certain way and I made the comment to her then she said something about–I was mad because she was more famous then me.

As the creator of ‘Married to Medicine’, what she initially envisioned for the show:

InInitially, I envisioned a group of women that were either married to medicine in terms of their career or married to someone that was a medical doctor. Coming together and being cohesive, talking about their struggles and their sacrifices and you know, you always have drama when there is a group of women together but I just thought it would be just a little more comradery probably.

Vogue’s Kim Kardashian and Kanye West cover is now the target of a lawsuit from a singer who claims his song ended up in the music used along with video of the shoot on Vogue.com.

Ricky Spicer, a former member of ’70s boy band The Ponderosa Twins Plus One, has filed a lawsuit against Vogue and Condé Nast for using Kanye West’s “Bound 2”—which, Spicer alleges, contains unauthorized samples from the Ponderosa Twins song “Bound” —as the soundtrack for the video on Vogue.com, reports the New York Post.  [Listen to the track below.]

Spicer already filed a lawsuit against West and his recording labels last December for sampling his music without permission.

The New York civil suit claims that “Mr. Spicer’s voice is used substantially throughout the video, comprising approximately 44 percent of the lyrics” and that Vogue “knowingly used the voice audio recording of Mr. Spicer without his authorization or consent.”

Spicer is seeking unspecified damages.

Apollo Nida Comes Clean On Who He Blames for ‘RHOA’ Pillow Talk Fight

brandon deshazer and_apollo nidaThere’s no doubt that the fight between Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida and Kenya Moore’s friend Brandon DeShazer was a talking point for fans of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but Nida admits that details surrounding the real reason behind the incident were left out.

In an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine publisher Jamie Foster Brown, Nida confessed to apologizing to DeShazer, who suffered a cracked rib from Nida during the incident.

The apology for the incident didn’t air during “RHOA’” sixth season. And while some believed Nida used DeShazer to release his frustration with Moore, Nida told Foster Brown that she had nothing to do with what happened that night.

Regarding the real reason behind the fight, whether DeShazer accepted his apology and who he blames for the violent turn the altercation took, Nida had this to say to Sister 2 Sister:

Jamie: What about Brandon DeShazer? Why were you so upset with him?
Apollo: So that day, I was really feeling good. I didn’t have a problem with Brandon, whatever. When all that stuff happened in the room, I put my shoes on. And what you didn’t see—because it was edited very well, Peter [Thomas] pushed him down. He fell on the beanbag. He jumps up off the beanbag, and the man had rage in his eyes.

Jamie: Brandon did?
Apollo: Oh, yeah. Because at this point, he’s really feeling threatened because Peter had to use force to push this man down. So he gets up running. I jump in the middle of Peter and Brandon. I’m like, “Yo, stop, stop, stop.” Probably not that calm, but I’m using force. And I’m not a weak guy. And I’m looking at Peter from the peripheral and trying to see exactly what’s going on here. And I couldn’t hold him. So at this point I grabbed him by his throat. That might’ve been the wrong thing to do, but I couldn’t hold his body. Then he hit me in my eye.

Jamie: He hit you in your eye?
Apollo: Yeah, no one saw that part. So he swung and I’d seen it coming. I kind of moved back, and it still caught me. At that point, I lost it because I’m the type of person, you don’t put your hands on me, period. So whatever happened, I’m not proud of it because it was definitely bad and it took me somewhere that I haven’t been in a long time.

Jamie: Who do you blame for how the hotel thing started?
Apollo: Nobody. It happened. I apologized but not to the network. They made millions off of it. I apologized to Brandon. I talked to Brandon for, like, an hour.

Jamie: How did he receive it?
Apollo: He seemed cool. I really sincerely apologized to him.

Kerry Washington Talks Hiding Her Pregnancy on ‘Scandal’


Kerry Washington in ABC's "Scandal"

From her clothing to lamps and objects standing in front of Kerry Washington‘s belly, she managed to hide her pregnancy for her hit show, “Scandal.”

Instead of working it into Olivia Pope‘s storyline, “Scandal” hid Washington’s pregnancy throughout season three.

This was probably because Pope was too busy saving the White House and Washington DC to be pregnant. That would be too scandalous!

Washington dished on filming while pregnant and that decision-making process.

“The biggest thing for me has been the challenge of how to be this person [Olivia Pope] with the personal transformation that’s going on for me physically and how to stay true to this character. That hasn’t been easy.”

Washington said the decision for Pope not to be pregnant wasn’t  up to her.

“The decision of whether or not a character would be on similar journey, I had nothing to do with that decision,” she revealed.

But she was very trustworthy of creator Shonda Rhimes‘ decision.

She continued with, “I trust Shonda [Rhimes] with all things. I feel very grateful that we have such an amazing team that was able to protect the character within the context of what the actress was going through.”

The “Scandal” finale aired last Thursday night — with major twists, turns and cliffhangers.

Interestingly, “Scandal” hasn’t been renewed yet for season four. But Rhimes tweeted:

“Nobody should be worried. ABC has not done its pickups yet for next season. They always do them in like, early May…But um…clearly, you can assume good news.”

Columbus Short Briefly Addresses Domestic Violence Incident And Talks New Album (Listen)

columbus-shortFans may have come out in full force last night to catch the season finale of “Scandal,” but Columbus Short appeared on TV One’s “News One Now” to address his real-life scandal.

The show’s host, Roland Martin, cut right to the chase bringing up the elephant in the room: Short’s estranged wife filing for divorce from and taking a restraining order against the actor as well as an incident in which Short threatened to kill his wife and commit suicide.

The actor was brief and somewhat nonsensical in his response as he gave credit to “Scandal’s” scriptwriters and noted how the best scriptwriters come from life itself:

“We have some amazing scriptwriters,” Short stated. “It’s — life — life has the best scriptwriters of all time. That’s all I can say about that. But I’m still here. I’m standing. I’m talk. Let’s go.”

Although Martin seemed hesitant to address the situation, he mentioned the statement Short’s publicist sent out regarding the entertainer’s predicament, which in turn caused him to broach the subject with Short.

Domestic incident aside, Short’s main reason for appearing on News One Now” was to promote “Scandal’s” season finale, which aired Thursday. Wearing a B-613 sweatshirt, Short was tight-lipped on what viewers could expect other than advising viewers to “buckle up” for a “phenomenal” finale that was “gonna be crazy.”

Instead of leaking spoilers, Short heaped praise on veteran cast members Joe Morton, who plays Olivia Pope’s father Eli and Jeff Perry, who plays White House Chief of Staff Cyrus Beene. In addition to “Scandal,” Short promoted his upcoming album, which he’s currently working on. A single from the opus is currently circulating on radio.

“The single is out on radio right now,” Short shared with Martin, who reminded viewers that Short was in the Beyonce Knowles starrer and actually sang on the film’s soundtrack. “Yeah, man. It’s called “Gave.” Finally gone, full-fledged. This album done. Music is going to be great. Gonna be great.”

Although some thought Short would not appear on “News One Now” because of the situation with his wife, Martin thanked the actor for appearing on his show in spite of all the negative attention.

“Roland, you’re a friend. You’re a friend. And a brother I respect highly. And, you know, I would always want to check in with friends and family and let them know, you know what I mean?,” said Short. “Don’t believe everything you read.

Recipe of the Day

Lamb Pot Roast with Oranges and Olives


Lamb Pot Roast with Oranges and Olives recipe

Makes 8 servings

This meltingly tender and richly flavored roast has true star appeal. Show off even more by making your own beef stock .


  • 1 4–5-pound boneless lamb shoulder
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 mandarin oranges or tangerines, unpeeled, thinly sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup Taggiasca or other fruity, brine-cured black olives, pitted, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh savory or rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock or low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups dry red wine
  • 1 cup tomato purée


Holding knife parallel to work surface, cut lamb lengthwise, following seam where bone was removed and stopping about 1/2″ before you get all the way through. Open lamb like a book and season all over with salt and pepper. Close, wrap tightly in plastic, and chill at least 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Open lamb and arrange garlic on bottom half, leaving a 1″ border. Top with orange slices and olives. Sprinkle with savory and red pepper flakes. Close lamb and tie at 1″ intervals with kitchen twine.

Place lamb on a wire rack set inside a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until nicely browned, 30–40 minutes. Remove lamb from oven.

Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Carefully transfer lamb to a large heavy ovenproof pot and add stock, wine, and tomato purée. Cover and braise lamb, basting with braising liquid every 30 minutes, until golden brown and fork-tender, 2 1/2–3 hours. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.

Transfer lamb to a cutting board and let rest at least 30 minutes before slicing. Serve with braising liquid.

DO AHEAD: Lamb can be seasoned 1 day ahead; keep chilled. Lamb can be braised 2 days ahead; cover and chill.
