Wishful Wednesday. It's all about wishful thinking to get the day started, first beginning with these so-called celebrity hackers that appear to have the entire entertainment industry shook. If you thought Kat Stacks was bad, she has nothing to what these people are doing. Speaking of people, is Consequence playing the race card these days? With cards still on your mind, do you think aspiring artists should check an alleged Gucci Mane manager impostor business card credentials before handing over money? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. What's Going On?

There once was a time when normal people just stopped caring about celebrities and their wealthy lifestyles. We've seen so much reality television, we tend to think a lot of things are scripted, whether it be scandals, leaked tapes and so on. Well, for once, most people should feel a bit bad over these hackers going in on private financial records and personal info. The damage is piling up at this point. TMZ is all over this:

Celebs like Kim Kardashian, Hillary Clinton, Mel Gibson, Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Kanye West aren't the only ones screwed by the hacking scandal -- TMZ has learned, their business teams have been PARALYZED by the massive security breach. Several of the hacked celebrities -- who don't want to be named -- tell us, the phone numbers published online by the hackers have been blowing up all weekend. Here's the rub ... the numbers don't belong to the celebs -- they're numbers of the celebs' lawyers, accountants, and business managers. We're told fans have been calling the numbers nonstop, hoping to get through to the stars ... and it's become a gigantic pain in the ass -- in some cases more than 500 calls a day to a single number. Law enforcement sources tell us ... authorities are working frantically to remove all of the info from the Internet ... a task that's next to impossible. (TMZ)

The real question people should be asking themselves is what's the connection with everyone who has turned into a victim? Surely it is not just based off of names, because Jay-Z and Mel Gibson don't really have the same type of buzz. Could there be a deep truth behind this massive attack on our favorite celebs? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. The Race Game

Is race still a big topic today? It seems in light of trying to have a buzz and fame to your name, alienating any one race would not be a very good thing for you. Well, it turns out something is stirring up with "Love & Hip Hop" cast member Consequence. Bossip is on it:

We're still talking about light vs. dark in 2013? Well, apparently on Love and Hip Hop the answer is yes! Star of the reality show Lore'l took offense to a lyric rapper and cast-mate Consequence wrote calling light skin the right skin. Consequence decides to work with the aspiring artist but Lore'l had one condition. The rappin' banger disliked a line Cons wrote for her song saying, "Light skin is the right skin, so you, you, you and your white friend," should be removed because she doesn't want to offend her darker fans. Consequence refused but decided to air out his feelings about the disaster via Twitter. (Bossip)

Make sure to peep the link and see how much Consequence talked about skin complexion. There's some humor in what he's saying but it still makes you wonder what's really going through his mind. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Is Everything Gucci?

Gucci Mane is still a hot name these days and if you're a right imposter, you might get paid pretty nicely. Turns out there's something brewing in the world of Gucci and fake managers. Without spoiling too much, AHH Rumors has some information:

Most rappers dream of being the opening act for a rapper with the name recognition like Gucci Mane. Well, the rumor is there is a guy all over Facebook an the internet pretending to be Gucci Mane's manager. Rappers or fans are stalked and targeting for an "opening slot" at a Gucci show and the scam begins. You may get a note like this: Sup my man i have an open slot opening up for Gucci Mane Sun Mar 24th @ Exchange LA , Los Angeles, CA. the slot is 150 for a 10 min performance set & comes with 10 tickets for you and your camp. if want your interested in the slot whats your # From what I understand, the perps are finding and stealing actual pics of Gucci's managers and creating fake Facebook pages. The people they hit see the page and thing its real because of the extensive pics and they often know what Gucci's reps look like. Then, the $150 isn't even a head crack for money. In fact, its quite low but apparently adds up QUICK. This dude is getting PAID praying off theses poor aspiring rappers. Most of the time, there isn't even a Gucci Mane show at the time the man makes the pitch to the rappers. BEWARE! I would put the names out there but I don't want to further muddy the waters. (AHH Rumors)

The "opening slot" sounds pretty convincing but you have to figure anyone really trying to get their name in the music industry will know $150 is a pretty low figure, especially when dealing with someone who boasts about having tons of money like Gucci Mane. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

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