Everyone wants to blame VH1.
In an effort to clear her name, ERICA MENA called in to Power 105′s CHERRY MARTINEZ to explain why she set it off with fellow co-star KIMBELLA VANDERHEE.
As we know, ERICA expressed her disgust towards KIMBELLA, and models like her, for doing videos and photoshoots for dirt cheap, which makes it more difficult for other models (or really, ERICA) to get decent paying gigs.
ERICA’s sharp tongue provoked the fight with KIMBELLA that took a team five people to break up. But now ERICA is singing a different tune, and accuses the Vh1 editors of making her out to be the villain.
According to the 24-year old model, “My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted…
The life of a professional athlete is inherently complicated. But adding a wife, kids, and groupies to the mix is a recipe for disaster. Just ask KOBE BRYANT.
In the petition filed last Friday, KOBE‘s wife VANESSA BRYANT cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorcing her husband of 10 years. In what appears to be an effort to keep the details of their split out of the public eye, the couple said in a joint statement “resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately,” but the public can’t stop assuming it has all come to an end due to KOBE’s alleged infidelity.
However VANESSA BYRANT isn’t going out like no chump. This is a clever woman who got into a marriage, knowing EXACTLY what she was getting into – you don’t marry professional athletes like KOBE BRYANT for monogamy you marry for money.
Think about it.
She could have thrown in the towel after the rape scandal KOBE got caught up in 2003. After standing by KOBE’s side during the rape scandal (we’re sure that $4 million purple diamond apology ring helped smooth things over) and enduring whispers of KOBE’s affairs with groupies, she’s spent probably the past 7 years lining her ducks in a row because she knew it would pay off…millions of times over.

Last night JUICY sponsored a swanky hair and beauty event at the acclaimed AMOY Hair Studio in New York City’s Upper East Side.
Juicy along with Alizé, IMAN COSMETICS, and CUPCAKE SUITE NYC presented Late Nights Early Mornings hosted by Love and Hip Hop’s OLIVIA LONGOTT.
The soiree was intimate gathering of Juic-sayyyy ladies in the hair, beauty, and fashion world looking to get the scoop on the latest hair and beauty trends from the most sought-after NYC stylists.
Hair stylists from the AMOY salon as well as IMAN certified make up artists dished on tips to turn a look from day to night. Iman makeup artists even gave JUICY editor-in-chief PAULA T. RENFROE, web editor SHIREA CARROLL, managing editor TAIIA SMART-YOUNG make overs using Iman’s smooth and flawless foundations.
VH1′s Love and Hip-Hop stars YANDY SMITH, RICH DOLLAZ, and TIERRA MARIE rolled through to mingle with guests, along with model LIRIS to sip on a few cocktails and dish on their hair and beauty secrets. OLIVIA revealed that the secret behind her signature side-swept barrel curls are in actually to pin them up instead of using heated styling tools. Two snaps!
Guests also enjoyed signature Alizé cocktails, and mini red velvet cupcakes provided by Cupcake Suite.

Her name is BRIDGET KELLY and she’s Roc Nation’s newest R&B songstress. Describing her music as a fusion of R&B, soul, and rock with influences from ALICIA KEYS, ALANIS MORISSETTE, and PINK – Bridget is the new artist you need to know.
Signed by the ‘hottest rapper in the game’ Mr. SHAWN CARTER, Bridget just released her first EP ‘Every Girl,’ and Juicy caught up with her working with the Jigga Man, getting signed, and what makes her Juicy. – TIANNA ROBINSON
JUICY: When you got that call that you were signed to Roc Nation, how did you react?
BRIDGET KELLY: It was a feeling, I can’t describe, like all of my hardwork was paying off, and being from NY and having the opportunity to work for Jay, was even more amazing. I felt like I was on another planet, lol. I called my mom immediately and she brought me down to earth, saying, ‘that’s nice, but how much are they gonna pay you?!
JUICY: Your new EP is titled ‘Every Girl’. What inspired this title and what inspires the your music?
BK: The title Every Girl is because I feel like I’m singing the emotions that every girl feels in a relationship…The ups & downs, happy and sad times. My music comes from a place of raw emotion. If I don’t feel it, I can’t sing it.
JUICY: How is it having Jay-Z as your ‘boss’?
BK: It’s amazing, he’s so smart and knowledgeable, like a teacher and I’m like a sponge with him, trying to soak everything up and learn as much as possible. I don’t even look at him as my boss anymore, more so a brother, a mentor even.
JUICY: Interesting…Where do you see your career in 10 years?
BK:I want it ALL!! I want about 5 successful albums! I want to act, not just any type of roles though, I would love to do voiceovers for Pixar type films or voiceover for cartoons. I would be that fun quirky character. I want to invest, travel and most importantly give to the less fortunate.
JUICY: What makes you “Juicy?”
BK: I’m very outgoing, I don’t take myself seriously and I lovvvvve to have fun. I’m opinionated, stubborn and an extremist, with me it’s either all or nothing. As an artist, I’m passionate and aggressive and I don’t take no for an answer.

It’s a dispute that happens all too often in American society – divorced couples beefing over child support.
Celebs like KELIS, SWIZZ BEATZ, and T-BOZ are no strangers to the headache of court-ordered child support drama with ex-spouses. Last night on Real Housewives of Atlanta, SHEREE WHITFIELD joined the “Where Is My Money” club.
After being jerked around by ex-husband and ex-Atlanta Falcons player BOB WHITFIELD, SHEREE let it be known taking BOB to court to collect four years of delinquent child support payments for their two teenage kids was a very real option
