Tootsy Thursday. It's all about sass for today, beginning with Nelly giving Ashanti the boot after she got busted cheating? It's getting hot in herrrrre, but probably not hotter than the biggest one-night event in New York history with 12-12-12. Turns out Kim Kardashian may have been the only one going crazy over her boy toy Kanye West's performance. He's still got all that power, kinda like Phil Jackson back during his glory Lakers days. Too bad he doesn't think Kobe Bryant and the Lake Show have another run in them. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Gone

It's too bad that Nelly and Ashanti never married. The more you think about it, they were really what Jay-Z and Beyoncé are today just ten years ago. Think about it, even Jay rapped, "Only people moving units is Em[inem], Pimp Juice [Nelly] and us." If Nelly would have just gone ahead and thrown a ring on it, he would have been viewed as an icon, along with Ashanti who was killing the R&B scene back in the early 2000's. Well, their little relationship appears to be over, again. Media Take Out has the inside:


December 13, 2012: For YEARS R&B singer Ashanti has been BEGGING her longtime rapper boyfriend NELLY to claim her . . . and a few months ago - he FINALLY DID!!! reported late this summer that Nelly was willing to COME FORWARD with their romance - and they did. Nelly and Ashanti were beginning to come OUT IN THE OPEN about their love. And according to a person closee to Nelly . . . the rapper was preparing to PROPOSE to Ashanti THIS SPRING. But that ain't happening now. Because the SAME FRIEND tells that Nelly is accusing Asahnti of CHEATING ON HIM with her producer, Chink Santana. The insider explained, "Ashanti and [Chink] spent a lot of time together [in the studio]. Nelly asked her point blank if they were [having relations] Ashanti said no. But turns out she wasn't being truthful." So learned that Nelly has COMPLETELY cut Ashanti off . . . and is NO LONGER considering marrying her. Now we're using the term "ALLEGEDY" here because we can't say for certain that Ashanti was f*cking dude - that's just NELLY's side of things. And y'all know how men that DO DIRT like to PROJECT their cheating ways on their girlfriends. Either way it's sad that these two had to go out like this . . . (Media Take Out)

It's hard to think that Ashanti is the type to just turn her back on Nelly and see what other fish are out in the sea. Truth be told, they really do make a cute couple and when the cameras stop rolling, which they have, and the paper starts slowing up, all they'll have is each other. Any chance we can see a reunion at least one more time? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. All That Power

Last night's Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert (12-12-12) was something special. Alicia Keys held it down for the R&B ladies and Kanye West represented for hip-hop in a show that seemed to really cater toward wealthy, older Caucasian people as seen with performances from Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, etc. But even so, couldn't Kanye West have put a little bit more into his show? Regardless, it seems his wife-to-be (?) Kim Kardashian saw through the non-glitz and went crazy over her man. Rumor Fix has the scoop:

The audience didn't seem moved by Kanye's performance, but at least one person was: his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. "Awwwwwwww I'm so excited right now!!!!! He looks so cute!!" Kim tweeted as West took the stage. Kanye's performance also set Twitter ablaze with "Why is Kanye ..." trending. "Why is kanye singing about douchebags and assholes? what goes through his mind? #121212Concert" one Twitter user wrote. "Why is Kanye wearing PYREX on his jersey? Has he taken up baking casseroles in his spare time? #121212Concert," another user wrote. But the real gem went to the creator of this tweet: "We are going to have to have another benefit concert for all the people affected by Kanye West's performance. #disaster." The rapper seemed frustrated with the botched performance, slamming his microphone on the ground and storming off the stage. (RumorFix)

Is Kim Kardashian really this blind or did she just think that Kanye really gave a breath-taking performance? Considering she has seen him perform at awards shows and on the Watch the Throne tour, you would think that she'd be less enthusiastic but then again, maybe considering how special the night was, she got caught up in the moment? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Ring The Alarm

Are the Los Angeles Lakers doomed? It seems ever since Dwight Howard came to town after Steve Nash, the Lake Show has focused more on his star-studded guests instead of a good, written script. Underperforming and having lost an opportunity to have Phil Jackson back by turning down his lavish demands, the Lakers are thirsty but does Phil think they can win the big one again? TMZ has the insight:

Phil Jackson says he doesn't want to return to the Lakers organization ... even if they ask him ... and to make things worse, Phil told TMZ he doesn't think the squad is championship material either. Phil and his GF Jeanie Buss were out on a dinner date at Gjelina in Venice, CA last night ... when we asked the Zen Master if he would be open to rejoining the team if things didn't work out with the Lakers current head coach Mike D'Antoni. But Jackson has made it clear the door is closed ... and when we asked if he thought the Lake Show still had a shot at an NBA title this year, Jackson was brutally honest. (TMZ)

There's no question that Kobe hopes to slip at least one more ring on his finger, but it might have to come from behind the desk unless Phil decides to come back. Any chance the Lakers are still contenders? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
