Xscape “Just Kickin It”



One of my favorite groups growing up was, “Xscape,” and hearing that the group split up due to Kandi and LaTocha wanting their own solo careers and they weren’t able to multi task when it comes to a group or a solo career. The split affected a lot of people including myself, they had hit after hit after hit but I’m glad to see them reunited even as the drama explodes between these ladies.

Damn they split up 18 years ago, but the group Xscape have reunited and we are looking forward to see them perform in my hometown of Detroit MI. The ladies are in their 40s, they all have children and other responsibilities as they work hard to come back as a group. They immediately get back into rehearsals and realize that their old issues with each other have resurfaced. The ladies must figure out a way to get along with just two weeks to rehearse before taking the stage at the BET Awards, their first performance together in decades.

Sisters Tamika and LaTocha have some old drama they need to put behind them in order to make this a success. The most painful one involved allegations that Tamika made about Kandi breaking up the group on New York radio station Hot 97 in 2007, which they both discussed in the 2015 TV One documentary Unsung.

“Kandi, between 2000 all the way up to 2007, she would do interviews saying Tocha broke up the group… and I’m like, that’s not true,” Tamika recalled. “I had to protect my sister and so I did an interview and let it rip.”

In a Hot 97 interview, Tamika told former morning host Miss Jones that the group broke up because Kandi slept with their label head Jermaine Dupri and his father, music industry executive Michael Mauldin. These rumors have been floating for awhile, she was young, successful and beautiful young lady as well as being single, she can sleep with whomever she pleases only not the boss.

Kandi later admitted in a 2010 interview with radio personality Angela Yee that she had been with Jermaine Dupri. “He and I, we crossed the line of friendship, let’s say that,” she revealed. “But that had nothing to do with why the group broke up. [Tamika] knew that, she actually came back and apologized to me. It was really like some old hating type of stuff she was doing because, I don’t know, I guess because I was still continuously doing something. So she just threw that out there trying to diss me so it wouldn’t look like her sister really broke up the group.”

“I couldn’t believe she would do me like that, I really couldn’t,” Kandi said tearfully on Unsung, reiterating that LaTocha’s solo ambitions were what broke up Xscape. “For her to do that, it just felt like she really had hatred for me and I just didn’t want to deal with that no more. I was just like uh uh and I was done.”

Tamika apologized to Kandi during her Unsung interview for hurting her, and again apologized to her on stage this past July. But for years Kandi said that Tamika hadn’t said she was sorry to her publicly, and that was the main reason why she thought Xscape would never reunite. Tamika apologized on air but it wasn’t heartfelt, these ladies are blaming Kandi for the split but Kandi needs to pull up her big panties and do what she has to do to make this group reuniting means something.

“With my group situation, I held onto that for a very long time,” Kandi told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2014. “One of my group members said some real foul stuff about me and she never publicly apologized for lying… She apologized personally to me once [but] I feel like it wasn’t genuine.”

Tamika now recognizes that what she did that day on Hot 97 wasn’t right and she needed to apologize for it.

“After the group broke up, Kandi and I, we didn’t speak for a while,” she told The Daily Dish. “So you know me childishly goes up to the radio station and I say a lot of things that I know and I say some things that I heard. And I just feel like an apology was needed because I don’t wanna put something out there that is not true so I definitely wanted to apologize for that. I’m older now, more mature. Should I have done it? No. Should I have handled it another way? Yes, I should have. But I’m just so grateful that we are beyond that moment now and it takes a strong person to apologize and it takes a stronger person to forgive. So I’m hoping and praying that she does forgive me because I forgive myself and I know my Father has forgiven me.”

This show is definitely full of the ladies being fake, backstabbers, the lies, no trust and no loyalty, they better get it together and Kandi quit playing the victim role and move forward with the group. We loved and still love Xscape, don’t mess up the group again. Make that money before the money makes you.

JuJu & Cam’Ron Split



Love and Hip Hop New York JuJu and rapper Cam’Ron call it quits after 10 years of being together. JuJu is a beautiful and smart woman, why date a man for 10 years and not marry him?

I just think its ridiculous to date or be engaged to a man for longer than 5 years, I don’t think he will ever marry that woman. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Not saying that JuJu needs any of Cam’Ron’s money but had she been married to him for 10 years, she would have at least got paid off that a$$. But, its not my story or my relationship, people do things for different reasons and I pray she can heal fast.

So what was the reason the two called it quits? Well, word on the street, JuJu went creeping on her man’s Instagram account and read a post from a woman named Roxy who’s allegedly claiming to be Cam’Ron’s side hoe. When you go looking for trouble, you find trouble, I mean they have been together off and on for 10 years, I’m pretty sure JuJu knew her man, so why now?

“What s**t you with Roxy,” JuJu wrote. “What you wanna do? You want this smoke cuz I’m with it .. you over there sucking Cam d**k too along with the Meth head?? Watch ya ducking [sic] mouth addressing my sister and ming ya f*****g business b***h.”

JuJu is not usually with drama or even seen in a position where she would lose her cool, to watch her go back and forth with some chick on Instagram is crazy, these women will make up sh$t, they come up with pics saying your man was with them, I can’t trust a woman when she says she has been with my man unless I know how he is. This chick ended up posting pics of her with Cam’ron but again that means nothing. JuJu must have wanted a reason to break up with Cam’Ron, it has to be more to the story but we will probably never know the truth.

Of course this Roxy chick clapped back by saying she “didn’t start it but imma finish it.” She then posted a photo of her and Cam’ron to her Insta-story with the caption, “You coming with me or you staying with juju.”

Since her last post, Roxy’s page has been deleted. However, before deleting her page, she claims that she wasn’t a side chick and Cam and JuJu split up months ago. Cam’Ron probably told that trick to shut it down and she did. Neither one of these women should be airing their dirty laundry on social media about a man who isn’t loyal to either, allegedly.

JuJu later thanked a fan on her Instagram page, “God fixes everything, even broken hearts,” said JuJu.

RHOA Recap



The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Recap!! So far this season, Porsha has been too extra, just way over the top and it isn’t cute. She has fame and that fame has gotten to that pea brain of hers and has affected her where she has such a bad attitude.

It seems like Porsha doesn’t treat her sister Lauren with a lot of respect but that may not be the case, we only see snippets of the show and production edits what they want the viewers to see. However, the way she treats Lauren has some truth in it, Lauren doesn’t feel appreciated and she lets Porsha know how she feels.

Porsha wants to open a hair salon using her name only but the chick knows nothing about running a hair salon. Just because her hair business is going great doesn’t mean she can open a hair salon and everything would be peaches and cream just because her name is Porsha. Lauren wanted to keep the salon small, why? I’m not sure but Porsha doesn’t want a small salon, she wants a big salon but again she has no experience in running a hair salon. Isn’t this the same girl who believed the underground railroad was an actual train?

Porsha and Lauren met with their business consultant and their real estate agent and when they were asked basic questions about the hair salon, the both of them were dumber than a box of rocks. Porsha suggested bringing in a hair salon consultant to advise them on the in and outs of running a salon and they could go from there. When their meeting ended, Lauren felt embarrassed because Porsha continues to throw that fact that this is her business but Lauren says she invested in her company so how is it just her business? The two sisters went back and forth with each other and it didn’t end good, Porsha said they should split up and Lauren stormed out calling her sister a B$TCH!!!

Gregg, Nene husband hasn’t been feeling that well, he felt that he needed to go to the hospital due to chest pains. He was admitted to the hospital for chest pains, Nene says Gregg has been complaining of chest pains for a minute but she believes its because his father had heart issues so maybe this is just a false alarm but she needed to get him to the hospital in case this was a real emergency. He didn’t have a heart attack but he may need minor surgery but any surgery is not minor to me and this is heart. We pray that Gregg is just fine, he is about the only sensible and sane person on the show.

That old Sheree is back, that “who gon check me boo,” that one, she don’t play about her money and when she hires someone to do a job, she expects that job to be 250% right, she is correct and I ain’t mad at her. Sheree is always beefing with somebody but she doesn’t take any sh$t off anyone. She threw her mom a 70’s theme birthday party because she was turning 70 years old and she looked great. It really was a cute idea but 4 hours before the party was supposed to start, Tiffanie her party planner texted her and told her that she was not showing up because she felt tension with Sheree. Tiffanie was supposed to be at Chateau Sheree setting up for the party but Sheree and her oldest daughter did it all, there was no way that Sheree was going to be embarrassed or disappoint her mother and they actually pulled it of. HELL, Sheree doesn’t need to hire a party planner, this could be a new opportunity for her.

Everyone showed up in their 70’s outfits and they all looked great. They seemed to all be having a great time and the smile on Sheree’s mom’s face said everything. Nene met up with Cynthia and Kenya at her house so they could all attend to the party together and we all know Mrs. Nene Leakes, she was snooping and she went into a walk in closet where she noticed men clothing hanging up but not many clothes were hanging up, plus they still had the tags on them. Kenya needs to stop with this foolishness, that B$TCH ain’t married. How many times did she call her alleged husband and spoke to his voice mail on just this episode? Too many to count, she looks real dumb but the truth will reveal itself sooner rather than later.

The next day Gregg called from the hospital to inform Nene that the time for his procedure had been changed and she was just on her way to the hospital. Gregg did seem a little worried, he wanted to wait for her but the doctors needed to check to see if his heart had any blockage, Nene just told him she’s about ten minutes away and go ahead and get the procedure done and she would arrive shortly.

She was now worried, the look on her face said it all, she wondered what would happen if Gregg never made it home. Wow, just keep the faith and we are praying.
