Hey, put this on your Santa List...Chilli trying to come up with a hustle...she's launching her new hand "picture" bags...(her son is her model for the bags)
Chilli is selling those "Avon/Mary Kay" type looking bags...You can customize yours via her website. Just send in a picture of your loved ones and choose your bag. I personally, would order something like this from Shutterfly or Snapfish.
She should be selling picture frames...instead of bags. Girl, hang those pictures on your wall, and not on your shoulder. LOL
Get yours at BagsbyChilli
Congrats to Mekhi Phifer...his soon to be wife, gave birth this week to a bouncing baby boy!
Mekhi Phifer and his fiancée Oni Souratha have welcomed their first child together. Mekhi Thira Phifer was born in Los Angeles on Tuesday at 6:47 a.m., and weighed 5 lbs., 4 oz.
“We are really happy and excited. He is beautiful.”
Key-Key performed "Got to get my Heart Back" live...She's a Bad Girl, and the album is Hot...but moving right along to her topless Vibe cover, she need to be saying "Where's my shirt and bra?..."Got to get my Clothes Back!!" I love the song by the way...
Wow, $8,000 stacks for make-up? It sure does cost a lot for celebrities to live the "Good Life"...What ever happened to mascara and eye shadow from the "Dollar Tree?"...oh, I forgot...not a "diva" without the false "eye lashes" which they are $1 too at the Dollar Tree. LOL Don't get me wrong, her make-up is always on point, but that's just waaay to much so I know why her record label is tripping and trying to drop her.

Hey, these record companies don't play...Kelis was dropped and now, J.Lo might be getting the boot by her record company because she is costing them more than they making off her "Brave" album, which has sold 53,000 copies in it's first week but that's not nearly enough of what it costs to promote her. Also, her "Good Morning America" appearance cost them $8,000 for make-up and hair.
sources says that, “She costs too much money and doesn’t sell enough,” says the source, who is familiar with the issue. “Her last album cover alone cost $60,000 in hair and makeup, lighting, photographers, re-touching, etc. The video budget was in the neighborhood of $300,000.”

Beyonce is working the stage in Mumbai, India...A Bey Bey...LOL I like B's facial expression..."Bounce, bounce", Beyonce! Maybe this is "Sasha"...you know Beyonce says that she let "Sasha" take over the stage during her performances. LOL
It's good to see Ashanti and her mom hang out to support G&P Foundation for Cancer Research "Angel Ball" in New York...
Why does Ashanti look so stiff? Maybe her dress was too tight or something. Her mother looks youthful though!
Kelis and Alexis both have unique styles, but Alexis' shoes are the most hideous, for one it is after Labor Day with the "white"...they both should put those shoes in the back of the closet.
Keyshia Cole graces the cover of Vibe Magazine...December issue.
" Why Keyshia why?"
Keyshia Cole's album is Hott! She doesn't need to pose like this to sell records...
She is losing "brownie points" on this one...LOL

Father disputes son's $53,000 strip club bill...
This is such ashame...This guy graduated from GA Tech and celebrated his achievements in a strip club. The total he spent in one night at Club 10 strip club(in Florida) added up to $53,000 stacks...
The guy's dad is trying to dispute the American Express charges and the club owners says that the guy knew what he was doing when he brought "19 bottles of champange priced at $150-$2,000"...I guess that's not all he purchased...probably a few table dances...LOL...yes, he should have "left home without the American Express card"...He even told the club manager that his limit was $600! That's a lot of money either way...but that's good that he had a 50,000 limit on the card though! LOL

Oh, no....(Even Kelis is shocked by this) LOL
(note: this magazine is so last year, but it fits perfectly with my topic.)LOL
So, anyway, Jive "Turkey" Records has dropped "Ms. Milkshake", Kelis from their record label due to her lastest 2006 "Kelis was Here" album sales in the US.
read more here:Source
(Sad to hear this because in my opinion, Kelis tried...she got a haircut, got her husband Nas on the album...Also Bossy was a good comeback song for her)
I remember when she first came out with the big colorful hair and "I hate you so much right now" video. LOL
Kelis is different and her style is like no other. I read that she will be trying to host a show like Project Runway...that's up her alley because she's very fashionable. (Her hair cut is fierce!)
Good luck to my girl, Kelis!! (I am still a fan) When one door closes another one will open...hopefully in "fashion" for her and not "acting"...Speaking of acting..I heard her and Nas's MTV reality show has been cancelled oh well, hopefully her eye for fashion will help her out.
Respective record labels for:
Kelis was here

The self proclaimed, "King of the South"...T.I. was released from jail today on a $3 million bond.
(He was greeted by fans as he exited the court house) According to the Atlanta Journal, Clifford Harris said "yes your honor" as Judge Baverman explained T.I.'s bond conditions which will include no more than 3 visitors at his home during the hours of 7am-8pm and no drinking.
But at least he's at home with his family and just in time for the "American Gangster" movie which he has a role in...Ok, this should tell T.I. something...God hears your prayers and want to let you know that YOU ARE NOT KING! LOL

T.I.out on bail AJC article
I know he can't even describe how he's feeling right now....especially after waiting so long for a positive outcome. He describes his situation to CNN."I'd seen it coming, but I didn't exactly know when," he said. "I'd just stopped trying to figure the courts out and stopped trying to put a date on it."
"Free at last, free at last...thank God Almighty Genarlow is free at last!"

Fun times with Keyshia Cole.... Key-Key, Ci-Ci, actress Kerry Washington, and Keri Hilson hanging out at the Hip Hop Honors party for Honoree Missy Elliott.
Check out "The Way It Is" Season 2 on Tuesday, Oct. 30th!!
I just had to post this picture, because you will rarely see Keyshia Cole laughing and crying at the same time.
Hopefully, she's not crying over Young Jeezy...Of course not! she's too tough for that. yeah, right!
That's probably why she named her album "Just like You"...she's just like you...and it's okay to cry. (but not over nobody) LOL
side note: (Keyshia got emotional while performing at the Boost Mobile Rocks Corps Radio City Music Hall)
Here's a tid bit of T.I. sitting beside Denzel Washington in the movie "American Gangster"...T.I. looks older with the hair...hopefully, he's not old before he sees the movie.

It has been rumored that they are dating...
I know they say that about EVERYBODY that appears in a hot video together. We's heard the same about Ciara and 50...but time will tell, time will tell. LOL
Kerry Washington starred and directed Common's "I want You" video...

Remember when... "Jenny from the Block" and Puff Daddy was "an item? " Well, that was "many moons ago" because Jennifer Lopez is now married with child but P.Diddy still says, he is happy for her and will be sending her baby a gift.
"I guess, their relationship helped "Ms. Fly Girl's" career though. LOL
I hope he is singing Adois (Good-Bye in Spanish) to P.Diddy. That's right Mark Anthony, you are J.Lo's husband now. LOL
But I guess P.Diddy still got to add his 2cents(literally). He speaks to US Magazine about J. Lo being a wonderful mother and his plans on sending her a baby gift..."She's going to make a great mother," he told Us Wednesday at a press conference promoting Ciroc Vodka. "She is one of the most caring people I've ever met. When I went out with her, I saw that quality..I'm extremely happy for her, and I will be sending some expensive god-daddy presents to her baby."
