This must be the week of the comeback! In the same night Bobby Brown made a guest appearance with Bobby V to perform a remake of Brown’s 1988 hit “Rock Wit’Chu”, former New Edition band mates, who later went on to form group Bell Biv Devoe performed singles “Poison” and “Do Me” on comedian Jimmy Fallon’s late night show ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’. The trio, which consists of Ricky Bell, Michael Bivens, and Ronnie Devoe, is currently on the heels of a New Edition/BBD reunion tour.
Bobby V is trying pretty hard to bring that old school R&B back with his remake of Bobby Brown’s “Rock Wit’chu” and soon to be released album ‘Fly On The Wall’. Therefore, it wasn’t very surprising when the singer was joined by Bobby Brown in a live performance on last night’s Lopez Tonight. Check it out below. The album is set to be released March 22nd.
Carmelo Anthony’s first game as a New York Knicks, wearing a #7 jersey Wednesday night, was indeed a triumphant one! The New York Knicks beat the Milwakee Bucks 114-108. Many wondered if Melo, Amar’e Stoudamire and newly recruited Chauncey Billups could deliver, and there’s no doubt they can.
In a televised press conference earlier in the day Anthony spoke about the trade from the Denver Nuggets and what he hopes for in the future of his basketball career.
He says, “You know this morning I came in early, got some shots in by myself. I still felt like I was just coming in for a shoot around, you know, opposing team…I didn’t…it ain’t really sink in yet that I’m a New York Knick.
I feel like I’m still dreaming right now. It was a dream come true for myself and I’m ready to get down to business right now. I know it’s only twenty-six, twenty-something, twenty-seven games, something like that, left, and I know we gotta gel, we gotta get our chemistry down but at the same time we gotta roll. We’ve got things we’ve got to accomplish. We’ve got goals to reach. It starts now.”
Wife and TV personality LaLa Vasquez was in attendance to support her man.
A Michigan woman was arrested after her 9-year-old daughter passed a bank teller a note saying her mother was too drunk to drive, police said.
Latanya Evans, 49, and her daughter entered the Bank of America branch in the Detroit suburb of Southfield on Friday, according to The Detroit News and The Associated Press. The girl handed a teller a note saying her mother was drunk and she did not want to ride in the car with her, police said.
When the little girl refused to get into the car, her mother left her at the bank and drove away, the reports said.
“The girl was very smart and did the right thing,” Southfield Police Lt. Nick Loussia told The Detroit News. “She tried to get her mother help, and she refused to get back in the car with her mom because she had been drinking.”
Evans was arrested a short distance from the bank, at which time officers determined she was driving under the influence and on a suspended license, Loussia said.
K. Michelle is one young lady you all should get acquainted with. There is no denying she has talent.

This is the second trial for Banton, 37 for the same conviction after jurors were deadlocked the first go around back in December 2010.
Although attorneys for the singer intend to appeal, the singer could potential face 15 years in prison.

Well, what do we have here! In some not so surprising news “the homeless man with the golden voice” Ted Williams will join reality television.
Williams became a YouTube sensation after a video went viral of the then homeless man with, what we now know as, the “Golden-Voice”. A voice intended for radio. Ted’s sudden rise to fame produced many television appearances, a reunion with his 92 year old mother, a public battle with his estranged daughter and a recent stint in rehab.
The show will be called ‘Second Chances At Life”‘ detailing Williams’ fall after a promising career in radio, life as a homeless man, and struggles with drugs and alcohol.
Well what do you know, free agent Carmelo Anthony has made a decision and he is headed to the New York Knicks! As of late last night, Anthony signed a deal turning down 65 million to extend his contract with the Denver Nuggets to join Amar’e Stoudamire in New York. Many suspected but many didn’t believe Melo would actually take the bait. Anthony, wife LaLa Vasquez, both New York bred, and young son Kiyan are said to be making arrangements to move back to the big apple as soon as possible.
As per ESPN,
As a part of the deal, the Kincks will send Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov, and a 2014 first-round draft pick to the Nuggets, who would get additional picks and cash, league sources told Broussard. Along with Anthony, New York would acquire Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman, the sources said.
New York will send Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curryto Minnesota as part of the deal in exchange for Corey Brewer, a league source told Broussard.
Anthony will make an official announcement sometime today and should be suited up for Wednesday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He’s expected to sport a different number from the number 15 he’s sported since his days at Syracuse. New York fans are beyond happy I’m sure. This may be what the Knicks need to build an all star team and finally head to the championships. Congrats Carmelo or should I say Knicks fans.
I had the pleasure of listening to a few tracks produced by an up and coming music producer, Gabe-Real, and with such a great ear for music there’s no wonder he has a growing fan base. He’ll certainly be any production team’s hottest commodity.
Check out his latest behind the scenes footage of a day in the life in the studio.
Former ‘Jersey Shore’ cast mate Angelina Pivarnick, 24 is now engaged to boyfriend David Kovacs, after dating for just a few months. What’s more surprising, how Kovacs proposed. Kovacs popped the question on the red carpet of STYLE360 Sachika’s Fashion Show during New York’s fashion week. According to onlookers, Angelina was taken by surprise when Kovacs presented here with a 2.5k platinum engagement ring.
The very public proposal have many speculating the engagement is a publicity stunt, however. A publicity stunt intended to extend Pivarnick’s 15 minutes of fame by nabbing a reality show.
My advice, if Angelina wants to stay relevant she should have given it a second thought before quitting the ‘Jersey Shore’. The intense feuding with cast mates would have given her all the extra time in the limelight she needed.
