Pubic Enemy #1
Apparently Diddy thinks the public didn't get the memo the last time he decided to blab about his beauty regimen for his man parts, because in the new issue of Allure, the entertainment and fashion mogul continues his TMI assault.
"I shave and groom my private areas," he revealed. "It's a better presentation for me. If men require women to go through the pain, we should return the favor."
Rebel Talking... Obviously the whole world is literally on Diddy's nuts because this has to be the third time I've read this about him.
Dallas Don't Do Housewives
Kim Volciak, AKA "the black woman in a white woman's body" from Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" recently chatted it up with Essence about her singing career.
"My first song, "Tight Rope," will be out the first week in January, but I'm not sure when the album will be coming out," she said. "[Dallas Austin] wrote and produced it. He originally sent me three but I fell in love with the beat and lyrics. The song is about walking a tight rope with somebody. It [speaks] to my personal life and my relationship and just life in general. It definitely applies to my life, but after seeing that footage on the show where it looks like I can't sing! I guess it makes for good television but it looked awful to me. People will just have to wait for my album to see the deal."
The funny thing is Dallas Austin doesn't seem to have gotten that memo. The famed Atlanta producer blasted Kim on his MySpace blog saying, "We are not doing a song, we are not doing an album ... that was only for television!"
Rebel Talking... See I knew this heffa was lying. I can't wait to see Lisa and Nene tells this hooker off on the reunion show next week.
Beyonce made an promotional appearance on New York's Power 105.1 radio station yesterday to celebrate the release of I Am... Sasha Fierce.
Ed Lover and Free asked Bey if she'll be cooking for Thanksgiving and she revealed, just as she did on Oprah last week, that aside from Hamburger Helper, she's deficient in the kitchen, but that doesn't keep her from enjoying food.
"I put peppers, I like spicy," Bey said.
Asked if she carries her own hot sauce, Beyonce admitted, "I used to. I used to keep it in my purse, I'm very country."
It's not all spiciness with Bey though, homegirl also has a bit of a sweet tooth.
"Growing up if you wanted me to do anything-- if you wanted me to keep a secret, if you wanted me to clean up as a kid, give me a honey bun," Beyonce revealed. "I am very passionate about my honeybuns. I haven't had one in a long time but I love them."Rebel Talking... Let me guess, Beyonce is the one with the honeybun cravings and Sasha Fierce puts hot sauce on everything.
Soul in the Hole
TMZ has been keeping close tabs on Don Cornelius. On Monday (November 17) they reported that a judge has ordered the 72-year-old former host of "Soul Train" to surrender his firearms, as well as disclosing court documents showing that Cornelius's estranged wife, Viktoria, was granted a three-year restraining order seven days after he was arrested for allegedly beating her up. Tuesday, a judge issued also issued protective order against him on her behalf.
Viktoria filed for divorce in August 2007.
Rebel Talking... You've got to be kidding me! She let a 72-year-old man beat her ass? She must be looking for alimony, otherwise she'd have shown him some love, peace and soul by smothering his old behind with a pillow.
But while you were learning the steps to "Single Ladies" from this guy I was waiting on the premiere of BET's new show "Brothers to Brutha" and wondering why Usher was holding hands with Terrence Howard.[For more from the Soul Rebel peep SOHH Soulful daily]
