VH1 has revealed the official trailer for the made-for-TV movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story (airing October 21). The film stars Lil Mama, KeKe Palmer, and Drew Sidora as Left Eye, Chilli, and T-Boz.  In the teaser, we watch the ladies recreate the videos for TLC’s hits “Waterfalls” and “No Scrubs,” and their resemblance is spot on! 

In other TLC news, the group has revealed the details about their new album.  According to a new press release, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins have re-signed with L.A. Reid to LaFace under Epic Records and will release their album on October 15.

Though the project does not have a name yet, it will feature fan favorites, biggest hits, plus four all-new songs including “Meant to Be,” (penned by Ne-Yo and used in the VH1 Original Movie); and “Posh Life” (produced and co-written Dallas Austin).

T-Boz and Chilli have also tapped Lil’ Mama to perform with them at VH1’s Mixtape Festival in Hershey Park, PA on July 26-27.

Chill spoke about the addition saying,

“For 10 years we have been mourning the death of our sister Lisa, and although we have discussed the option of bringing in someone to perform with us, it never felt right at the time,” said Chilli. “Watching Lil Mama on the set of our movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story reminded us of Lisa’s spirit, and, for the first time since her passing, we felt everything come together in an organic way.”

T-Boz added,

“Lil Mama’s authentic style, although very different from Lisa’s, got our creative juices flowing. By bringing her in, we will continue to keep TLC’s music alive for a new generation of fans. We are thrilled to be writing this new chapter in the TLC story.”

Lil Mama expressed her excitement saying,

“Lisa Lopes was a one-of-kind performer who cannot be replaced,” said the 23-year-old rapper. “I am grateful to Chilli and T-Boz for the confidence they had in me to portray her in the film and to invite me to perform and record with them and pay tribute to her incredible talent.”

What do you think about Lil’ Mama joining TLC on stage?

Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan covers the latest issue of ROLLING OUT where he talks about the similarities between his character Oscar Grant (an unarmed black teen who was murdered by an Oakland cop) and Trayvon Martin.  Here are the highlights:

 

Here are the highlights:

On why he almost skipped an interview due to anger over George Zimmerman’s acquittal:

“I was at the L.A. Dodgers game with my girlfriend,” Jordan revealed to rolling out. “And once the verdict was read, you could see how it affected the crowd. You could see the people in the audience, one person finding out from the next. People were just talking to one another about the verdict. After the game, I had to go to a Q-and-A session for the film. My heart was hurting so bad that I thought about skipping the interview. I didn’t know how to respond or express myself in a manner that I should have. But I sucked it up and went to do the interview. I spoke my peace. But it was hard. To look at the evidence and he’s not guilty, that’s tough. It’s really tough.”

On how he relates to Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant:

It could have been me,” Jordan says of the untimely deaths of Grant and Martin. “Around the time I read the [Fruitvale] script, Trayvon Martin’s shooting had just happened a week or two before. I remember when Oscar Grant died in 2009 and how frustrating it was during that time. And then the Trayvon murder occurred, it was like all of this was happening again. I’m from New Jersey and Oscar is from Oakland, but the same things are occurring. When I was younger, I always hung out with my boys. So we could’ve experienced a situation that was similar to Oscar Grant’s. Being from the inner city, you have to do the best with what you have — even when the odds are stacked against you. People from outside your community may judge you because you may look different, walk a little different, or talk a little different. But, dealing on a more personal level, after I got a chance to get to know Oscar’s story, I saw a lot of similarities between Oscar and I. With the film, I really wanted to give him a voice. It’s kind of fun for me to dive into those characters as well.”

On the impact of Fruitvale Station:

“We hope that we will create something that can stand the test of time,” Jordan says. “As far as opening numbers are concerned, it doesn’t really affect the project. Hopefully, this movie will cause people to make a change on how we look at each other when it comes to violence. I hope it has a positive impact. I hope it’s a project that will be talked about for years and years to come.”

Amer’e Stoudemire and Alexis Welch (who are currently on vacation in Israel with their kids) revealed their exclusive wedding photos and details to Essence magazine.  

Here’s the rundown of the ish YOU want to know about the wedding:

  • The Dress: Alexis Alexis chose a stunning gown by J. Anton for Ever After Miami. She said, "That was a special moment for me. Seeing my dress fully done for the first time. Since I was pregnant for most of the time between our engagement and our wedding, I didn’t really get to try it on."….. pick the most interesting thing things
  • The Ring:  Alexis’ 8.5 carat diamond ring was designed by Amar’e, who popped the question in Paris in June 2012.
  • The Wedding jacket:  Stylist Rachel Johnson said, “Alexis and I were texting back and forth during the Grammy’s and she loved what Wiz Khalifa was wearing that night. And it was a white jacket with a black shawl collar. And so that was also part of what I pitched, and that’s what Amare gravitated towards. But because Alexis wanted everything to be embroidered and feel regal, and somewhat over the top, we went with an embroidered back detail. It probably took about two months for it to be created, and it arrived maybe two weeks before the wedding. The bridal atelier Ever After applied all of that bead work and the result was literally icing on the cake.”
  • The bridal shower - Alexis was feted by 40 other women during a Kentucky Derby themed brunch in the Sorrento Penthouse at the Fontainebleau Hotel.
  • Reception and rehearsal attire:  Alexis donned a Giambattista Valli Couture gown from Spring 2013 collection for the reception while Amare’s looked suave in a red suit by Lanvin, paired a tee with the STAT family crest, and retro Jordan 11s.
  • On the couple meeting at the altar: Alexis said, "I felt comfortable. I felt safe. As soon as I saw him, I wasn’t nervous anymore." Amar’e adds, "I was almost in somewhat of a daze, but I was at peace. It was a very gratifying feeling to be standing up there with Alexis."
  •  
  • The shoes - Alexis wore custom-made shoes froom Kirkwood. her stylist Rachel Johnson said, “They were happy to accommodate us. We utilized existing silhouettes but we had carte blanche at choosing our fabric, choosing our lining, choosing the colors of the soles”.
  • The ballers in the audience: An array of athletes came out to support Amar’e including Carmelo Anthony, Iman Shumpert, JR Smith, Allan Houston (retired) and the Raptors Rudy Gay. Professional athletes Victor Cruz, Kurt Thomas and Drew Gooden .
  • Amar’e on having his kids at the wedding:  (Assata, Ar’e, Amar’e Jr. baby Alijah) in the wedding, "Seeing my wife walk down the aisle and having my children be in the wedding was one of my favorite moments,” reflects the groom. “My son Alijah actually made quite a few noises, but of course only during the moment of silence [laughs].”
  • Alexis on her gold red velvet wedding cake:  "We chose our cake because we wanted something royal and regal. In magazines I’ve always seen cakes with gold trim or gold accents, but never a fully gold cake. We wanted our cake to be something completely different."
  • Amare on the wedding party (Six bridesmaids, 11 groomsmen, and three of their four children:  "It felt like I was a king in the ancient times of Abraham, especially with all of my groomsmen standing by my side.  My friends and my family look up to me, and we are all extremely close. When I was standing up there with everyone surrounding me, I knew that I was making the right choice and that everyone supported us."

BET RELEASES Statement On Rick Ross/Young Jeezy SCUFFLE Saying VIOLENCE Is Not CONDONED, 50 Cent Stays MUM On Brawl Deets

BET released a statement earlier today about last night’s brawl at the 2012 BET HIP HOP Awards. Find out where the network stands on the incident inside and see what 50 Cent said when asked about the fight at the show……

 

We told you earlier about the brawl that broke out between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy at the 2012 BET HIP HOP Awards and now BET has released a statement about the incident.  Earlier today, the network said, 

"BET Networks works very hard to bring the best in entertainment to the city of Atlanta. For the past 7 years BET has celebrated the true art form of Hip Hop. Due to some misjudgment of select attendees, it is unfortunate that certain incidents took place. BET Networks does not condone any type of violence. Local authorities are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible."

Although conflicting reports have emerged about just what happened backstage and in the parking lot, according to an ATL police spokeman,

"Shortly after 7:15 pm Saturday, a fight broke out in the parking lot at the Atlanta Civic Center (where the BET Awards were being taped) between two groups. Atlanta Police Department officers on scene responded to break up the fight and used OC spray in the process. Individuals fled the scene. There were no arrests or reports of serious injuries. Reports of shots fired appear to be untrue."

There were also conflicting reports about 50 cent being involved in some type of altercation with a rapper named Gunplay but 50 was seemed to downplay the incidents from the show.  

When asked what happened at the show, he simply replied, "They gave out awards."  It seems like the rapper is moving in a more positive and peaceful direction and trying to avoid the drama or just not answer questions about it.

Trina Braxton REVEALS The DIRTY DEETS About Her “ORAL TRANSACTION” And Says She’s Not A Slut!

Trina Braxton is speaking out against the backlash she’s received since last week’s episode of "Braxton Family Values" where she admitted to performing oral sex on a man who wasn’t her husband!  Hear her explanation for the "oral transaction" inside…………..

During a chat with S2S’s Jamie Foster Brown, Trina Braxton responded to the backlash she’s been getting from fans who were pissy that she stepped out on her husband Gabe Solis.

“Some people call me a slut, which I’ve never been. I’m a lot of things, but a slut ain’t one of them.  Other people have been very, very supportive."?? ?

Trina explained that she had been feeling vulnerable and that’s what led her into the arms of another man.

“It wasn’t about getting back. It was about my own self-esteem." ?

When asked why she performed oral sex instead of just having full-on intercourse she said,

 “Honestly, Auntie Jamie, I’m one of those people, I don’t have but so many notches on my belt.  When it comes down to it, numbers mean a lot to me, and I’ve never been the type of woman to spread myself thin and let every Tom, Dick and Harry—or every Tom’s hairy d*ck—to associate with me and my body; not to sound vulgar. ?I don’t allow that with my body; I just don’t. I do not. I did not, and I will not.”

She went on to reveal that the incident actually happened a few years ago but she chose to reveal it to Gabe recently (and yes…..he was told about it BEFORE the show).

But one has to wonder, why would Trina put her business in the streets like that?  She said,

“One of the reasons, Auntie Jamie, is that throughout the season, first starting with season 1 and then in season 2, we kept talking about Gabe did this and Gabe did that and Gabe cheated… at the end of the day, everybody was feeling like Gabe was this bad guy and Trina was this princess. That’s not the truth, Auntie Jamie. It’s not a one-way street. He is not the only one with fault in this marriage.”

And as she reflected on the "transaction" it seemed like Trina was truly sorry that it happened…but it taught her a lesson. 

? “I learned some things about myself. I am imperfect in my marriage. I am not without blame.  As much as I try to say the scales aren’t even, doing somebody wrong is doing somebody wrong, no matter how even or uneven the scale might be. And two wrongs do not make it right." ?

 

True……but did Gabe deserve it?

Gabe did cheat on Trina NUMEROUS times throughout their marriage and Trina admitted that they hadn’t been intimate for awhile.  So does that give Trina the right to creep?

Whose side are you on?  Should a person be allowed to step outside of their relationship to "get even" or seek the intimacy they’re missing at home? 

SPEAK ON IT…….

 

 

Listen to the S2S interview here:

 

And watch Trina reveal her oral transaction at the (7:07) mark and also see the reactions of her sisters!

TV FAB: Kyla Pratt REVEALS Deets About Her Baby And Her Man On “WENDY” + Big Boy DISCUSSES Dropping 500 lbs!

TV FAB: Kyla Pratt REVEALS Deets About Her Baby And Her Man On “WENDY” + Big Boy DISCUSSES Dropping 500 lbs!

Former child star Kyla Pratt is all grown up and with a child of her own whom she talked about on "The Wendy Williams Show."  Get the deets on her baby and her relationship inside and find out about Big Boy losing over 500 lbs. 

Kyla Pratt stopped by the "WENDY" show today to promote her new role on BET’s "Let Stay Together" and most importantly, she cleared up rumors about her personal life.

The ish hit the fan a while ago after fans found out that Kyla had a 1-year-old daughter named Lyric (reportedly with a former stripper). 

Kyla, who’s 25, told Wendy that she did not announce her pregnancy because she didn’t want to deal with the negativity that some of her industry girlfriends dealt with when they had babies out of wedlock.  But she said, again, that she did not hide.  She says she went to Disneyland (while 8 months pregnant) and had a baby shower attended by 200 folks, including her BFF, actress Jennifer Freeman.

She says her man KP is a former competitive stripper (even though she tried to give it a different name in that long letter a while ago) and now works as a tattoo artist.  She then showed off the tatt he put on her wrist of their daughter.

Plus, she says marriage is definitely in the future!

 

Watch Kyla’s interview here:

 

And later on "WENDY"…..

Big Boy dropped by to promote his An XL Life book where he talked about having surgery to lose 500lbs in order to save his life.  But during the interview….Wendy jokingly offered him a twinkie!

Also during their chat, he revealed that he simply wanted to live and he knew his lifestyle was very unhealthy.  He also added that he had a vision that he would be dead in a year if he didn’t get fit.  He now encourages others to get healthy and choose life.

More DEETS Revealed In The Kobe & Vanessa Bryant DIVORCE

We told you yesterday about the shocking divorce between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant. Now details about their divorce settlement are leaking. Find out who gets to keep the estate inside….

On Friday, Kobe and his soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa (above) attended a Christmas recital for their kids.  A source  said the two sat next to each other during the show and left together in the same car. 

This all makes sense because the Bryants don’t have anything to fight over.

We told you yesterday that Kobe and Vanessa have already struck a financial settlement…..and it’s deets are being kept under wraps.

However, it is being reported that Vanessa received their Newport Coast mansion and Kobe moved into other digs.

Sources are also saying that financial records indicate that Kobe is worth about $ 150 million.  Not bad, but its a far cry from news reports that set Kobe’s fortune at $ 400 million. 

Since they had no-prenup, I can’t wait until we find out how much Vanessa walked away with…..
