Thursday, Feb 5, 2009 10:45AM
Hot off the Press this week Bobby adds to the Brown brood, Dawn weighs in on Aubrey's nudity, Keyshia and Frankie shop off the rack and Brandy says Whitney's just Ray J's "friend".
After countless court visits over child support for his numerous children, Bobby Brown has confirmed that he has another one on the way with girlfriend/manager Alicia Etheridge.
"Yes, Bobby is expecting his fifth child from Alicia," his agent Ravi Dabiesingh tells US Magazine. "There aren't too many details out there right now, but we do know he is very excited, as Bobby is big on family. The sex of the baby is not known yet, and we can confirm she is four months along.".
In addition to his 15-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, with ex-wife Whitney Houston, Brown has three children from other relationships: Landon, LaPrincia and Bobby Jr.
Rebel Talking... We all know Bobby's big on family, it's just a damn shame he doesn't feel the same way about child support, or while we're keeping it real - sobriety.
Lovers & Friends
And while we're talking about Whit, Brandy recently told Rap-Up magazine that despite appearances of a May/December romance, her brother denied being anything more than friends with the iconic singer.
"Well, every time I ask Ray J about Whitney he always says that's just his friend," Brandy said. "He's not dating her. And I don't think that he would lie to me. I said, 'Well Ray, that's not the way it looks. People think that you and Whitney are in a relationship.' He was like, 'Well, that's what they're gonna think, but I'm telling you the truth and I'm not dating Whitney. Whitney and I are just really good friends and that's it.' When I ask Whitney, she says the same thing, unless they are just pulling the wool over my eyes. But I think he's telling the truth.
Rebel Talking... Come on now, we already know the whole bunch of them are liars. Remember when Brandy made a whole TV show about being married??? And Ray-J claimed he and Kim Kardashian didn't leak their sex tape? And Whitney said she didn't do drugs? Case closed, you know he knocked them granny panties down.
Keyshia Cole and her ex-junkie mama Frankie somehow managed to land the cover of the upcoming Style issue of VIBE and the ladies wasted no time proving that despite their rags to riches fairy tale ascension to wealth, there is no accounting for good taste. When interviewed both Keyshia and Frankie confessed designer labels gets no love from them.
Keyshia told VIBE she is "getting turned off by the names, the print [logos] and all that" comes with designer fashion, adding, "I got money now. I don't have to prove to anybody that I have money by wearing a handbag."
Meanwhile Frankie dished that some of her greatest fashion finds are discovered on the CHEAP:
"I love Payless, the ghetto mall, and the flea market. Payless got the same thing as Louis Vuitton, except Louis Vuitton is a bigger name..."
Rebel Talking... SMH, I'm absolutely incensed that nobody told me Payless started carrying Louis. VIBE should have saved the Style Issue for April because clearly the joke's on us.
If you were looking for someone more sick of talking about ex-Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day baring all for Playboy, look no further than former groupmate Dawn Richard.
Dawn initially recently tried to play nice when MTV News asked her about the pictorial
"Um, congratulations? I don't know what to say to that," Richard told MTV News. "When someone says, 'Yo, she posed for Playboy.' That's great."
Richard added, "I mean, she has a great body, so yay. I can't tell somebody what their career move is. Maybe that's what they wanted their career to be."
Eventually her real feelings came out when she was asked if she'd take it off for Playboy.
"Would I do that right now? My mom would beat me," Richard said. "I don't judge. It's like, whatever. I don't judge people. I'm not going to give it more time than that. I think people give it too much time, actually."
Rebel Talking... I'm with Dawn, way too much time has been spent talking about that skank bending over for the camera. Moving on!
