R Kelly and 2 Chainz Perform – My Story – On, Jimmy Kimmel Live! Plays a Women Like a Violin (video)
Last week, Amber Rose said new mommies should set a realistic goal lose their baby weight, and this week we find that Tamera Mowry-Housley is the perfect example of just that!
Thirteen months after giving birth to son Aden, the 35-year-old actress is back down to the size she was before baby.
“Mommy did it!! Lost all my baby weight,” she shared with her fans on Instagram.
She went on to reveal that she “did it with hard work, proportion control, (hint; I even ate what I wanted at times) and with amazing trainers @michaelmyersfit and @msjeanettejenkins!”
“No pills, no surgery, no starvation, just hard work,” she added. “Thank you for pushing me even when I did not want to work out! But most importantly to love me where I was and every step along the way.”
During an episode of “The Real” this summer, Tamera said Christina Milian was her weight loss inspiration. After the singer revealed it took her nine months to shed the extra baby pounds, Tamera said, “I like to hear that.”
Tamera posted a picture of her toned stomach, and we must say she looks amazing! We are glad she took her time and that she’s happy with the results.
A Regular Joe who “masterminded” the blockbuster marriage between Doritos and Taco Bell — but never asked for a cent in return — has died after a battle with cancer.
Todd Mills, of Little Rock, Ark., died on Nov. 28, Thanksgiving morning, after a months-long fight with brain and lung cancer, USA Today reported. He was 41.
Mills, an IT honcho at the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, claimed he hatched the seed of an idea for the wildly popular Doritos Locos Taco in 2009 while noshing on Taco Bell and watching TV, the Arkansas Times reported.
When a Doritos commercial came on, “I looked at my wife and said, ‘How awesome would it be if this taco shell was a Dorito?’” Mills told the paper.
He lobbied Dorito parent Frito-Lay and was shot down, but soon got stomachs rumbling with a Facebook campaign dedicated to the idea.
The page, featuring goofy pics of celebs and movie characters holding Dorito-dusted taco shells, garnered thousands of “likes” and generates buzz on foodie blogs.
Taco Bell eventually caught a whiff of the “movement” and flew Mills out to its California headquarters, where they’d begun quietly tinkering with a nacho cheese-shelled taco, the Times reported.
“It was good,” Mills said of the taste test. “I got one made by the people in the test kitchen, so it was exactly to spec.”
The resulting product went on to be Taco Bell’s biggest seller ever.
To date, the fast-food giant has sold more than 600 million of them and credited 15,000 added jobs last year to the product’s success.
Still, Mills never saw a dime from his brainchild — but never bellyached about it.
“Todd being Todd, he never asked for anything,” longtime pal Jimmy Looney told USA Today. “He said, ‘I just want my tacos.’”
In an interview with the Arkansas Times last year, Mills swatted away talk that Taco Bell cheated him out of a big payday.
“Everybody that I tell about this says, ‘You should be getting some money off these.’” Mill said. “I’ve never once said that I deserved any sort of compensation.”
However, “If they wanted to send me a big taco check, that would be alright,” he said.
They eventually did.
After friends and family launched a donation site to help pay Mills’ medical bills over the summer, Taco Bell kicked in $1,000 to help them reach their goal.
The company called Mills “a true friend.”
“We are honored to have had his support through the Doritos for Taco Shells Movement on Facebook, and we admire his strength and optimism during his recent battle,” the company told USA Today. “Our thoughts and sympathies are with Todd’s family during this time.”
Mills is survived by his wife and two young daughters.
His funeral was held on Monday.
Afterwards, a few pals went to Taco Bell and chowed down on Doritos Locos Tacos in his honor, Looney told USA Today.
“(He was) a guy with a good idea and a good heart,” Looney said.

Peter Gunz was noticeably absent from the “Love & Hip Hop” NY premiere party while his baby’s mother Tara Wallace and newly revealed wife Amina Buddafly threw verbal darts at each other while seated across the room. Gunz, who created the whole mess, was nowhere to be found. Tahiry called him a coward and since he didn’t bother to attend the event, the label seemed to fit. But there was a legit reason why he didn’t attend. During our exclusive interview, he revealed that he skipped the premiere party because he hates Erica Mena! “I did not want to sit on the stage next to her,” he revealed. “I hate her guts[...]. To me she’s not a good person.”
After admitting his true feelings about the aspiring artist, he directed his attention to the cast, saying: “Those cast members should be thanking me, what else would you really be paying attention to, if I didn’t come and put my life on cameras for people to see.”
VH1 Love & Hip Hop’s Mandeecees Harris Just Sentenced to 15 YEARS in Jail…(Trafficking Over $2.5 MILLION Dollars in Cocaine!)
Mendeecees was driving an Audi R8′s and rocking Audemars on Love & Hip Hop New York, well word is he and his brother were pushing major weight in the streets. If you remember during the season he went to jail for UNKNOWN reasons, but was never released. Well now its official he was moving drugs and may have just caught a 15 year jail sentence. They talkin’ bout: This is sad. I feel for his kids more than anything.
I clicked on the Febderal Bureau of Prisons and it shows that he is currently being tansferred to prison with a release date unkown. He was basically charged with a drug trafficking conspiracy. His brother (has been in jail since last year) they say that they trafficked about 2.5 million dollars in heroin & cocaine from 2002-2012. 2.5 Million in TEN YEARS!!!! Doesn’t seem like they were good at their hustle!!!! But i’m sure he made way more. That amount is only what the Feds knew about.
(NEW YORK TWITTER) chatter is that Mendeecees has been sentenced to 15 years. Maybe they haven’t released the news of his sentencing just yet but if he is in transit to another prison, then you know it’s probably true.. His parents should get 15years for naming him that. but …in the words of Paid in Full “You Can’t Keep a Good N*gga Down”.
It can be devastating when your dream crush begins to look more like your father instead of the handsome, youthful, chiseled man you fell in love with. Fans of the 1990s R&B group Color Me Badd were stunned to see recent photos of the group’s lead singer/former sεx symbol Bryan Abrams.
Abrams, who showed up to court pushing a walker and looking like he has tripled his weight since leaving his singing career behind, pleaded guilty to one count of domestic abuse in April 2012, according to a local news website. In case you’re wondering how he was punished for his behavior, he was ordered to perform community service and get counseling for domestic abuse and substance abuse issues. The victim, his wife Kimberly Frazier, said she was punched in the face during an argument in the couple’s south Oklahoma City home. She also stated that she was “also hit in several places that caused injuries to her neck and thigh.”
Abrams’ attorney, Matt Swain, defended his client’s demise. He claims Abrams hasn’t fulfilled the terms of his probation because he has been plagued by health problems over the past few years. He added that his client has been trying to lose weight and recently had hip surgery, which explains why he showed up to court on a walker. “But he wanted everyone to know that he’s sober, he’s trying to get his life back together right now,” Swain said. “The health problems he’s had … have kind of derailed his life.” While Abrams sported his walker in front of the judge, he was seen racing up the steps outside of the courtroom and dragging his walker along. After photographers spotted him, he picked up the walker again in an attempt to relieve himself of any false injury suspicions. Just five days after his court appearance, Abrams tweeted: “Just wanna let you know as of today, I am walking with no cane, no limp & NO PAIN!! Oh it’s on now!”
Abrams and three other Oklahoma City residents were founding members of Color Me Badd, which rose to stardom in the early 1990s with hits like “I Adore Mi Amor” and “All 4 Love.” Color Me Badd’s debut album sold millions of copies and their song “I Wanna Sεx You Up” was featured in the film “New Jack City” during a love scene.
The voluptuous Nya Lee chopped it up with VladTV recently and admitted to having gotten as* shots years ago. She explained that while she went through with the procedure successfully, she won’t ever refer someone to have it done to them, for it is very risky for various reasons. Nya went on to speak on why it’s become such a popular trend among women these days, and why so many try to hide the fact that they got their butt enhanced, rather than just accept it and own up to the truth.
Ashanti Talks Cheating In Nelly Relationship, Men Flying Her To Dubai, And Irv Gotti Disagreement! (video)
For years, many Hip-Hop heads have wondered why Styles P wasn’t featured on the hit Bad Boy posse cut “It’s All About the Benjamins.” Well, 16 years later, rapper Sheek Louch finally explained why his brother from The LOX wasn’t featured on one of Bad Boy Records’ biggest hits. It had a lot to do with a then up-and-coming producer named Missy Elliott.
Sheek made an appearance at DJ Cipha Sounds’ improv show called “Take It Personal.” While there he explained how Missy Elliott kept Styles P off “It’s All About the Benjamins.” According to Sheek, they walked into a room and Missy was in the room beatboxing and demanded to hear each member of The LOX spit to the beat. Missy liked Sheek and Jadakiss’ verses but was unimpressed by Styles’ so he was told he wouldn’t be on the track.
“I remember we first got there with Puff. Me, Kiss, and Styles walked in the room and there was this girl in there and shit and they was listening to that beat. At first I didn’t like it…She was talking to me like she knew me. ‘Yo, let me hear you rap to that.’ ‘First of all, who are you?’ She’s dancing and shit,” Sheek shared. “She’s making beatboxing noises and shit while she like ‘Yo, let me hear you spit something to this.’ So, I said ‘alright’…So, I did my first verse—‘strictly tryna cop those’—it wasn’t even for that. I did it. Styles did something; she was like ‘meh.’ Jada did a verse to it. I swear to God, no diss to Styles. That’s my brother. Jada did his verse and shit she was like ‘Yo.’ He [Styles P] ain’t on the record and shit. And then she was like ‘You gon’ go here, you gon’ go here, y’all two, you and Kiss, gonna write Puff’s verse.’ Then she just walked off beatboxing. Later on that was Missy Elliott…But we didn’t know that was her. She put the whole ‘Benjamins’ together.”
The gossip rag also claims Knight-Pulliam wants both her biological father and her TV dad, Bill Cosby, to walk her down the aisle on her big day. “Keshia’s stayed close to Bill and talks to him often,” an insider claims. “She respects him and values his advice, and they’ve developed a close friendship. Keshia doesn’t want to slight her parents, but she would love it if Bill could walk her down the aisle in a symbolic gesture along with her own father. It would make her special day even more special.”
The actress was first spotted with the former 106 & Park host at a basketball game in Atlanta this past August, and the pair “confirmed” their relationship via a coupled-up selfie on Instagram. Big T later gushed, “Our love is awesome!”
Congratulations to the — reported — newlyweds-to-be!
The Ink Just Dried on Chad Johnson, and Evelyn Lozada is already Six Months Pregnant with LA Dodgers baseball star Carl Crawford Baby
So much for happily ever after. If you were like anyone else who follows reality TV, you knew that the marriage between Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson was going to last about as long as an episode of Basketball Wives. Similar to her counterpart Kim Kardashian, Evelyn and Chad threw out the little part of their marital vows that said “Till death do you part,” parting ways less than two months into their marriage.
Evelyn has moved on, and it seems that she’s moved on even more than most people thought. It turns out that Evelyn is now six months pregnant with a baby coming from a man that she’s been dating for a year.
So, let’s do the math: She got married last year on July 4, 2012. She got divorced on September 19, 2012. It’s now November, 2013 and she’s six months pregnant with a man she’s been dating for a year. People seem to move pretty fast these days don’t they?
TMZ says that the pregnancy was entirely planned, which means that after knowing each other for just a little while, Evelyn and her man were hitting the skins with no protection. Good luck with that. And good luck with the baby.
