The baby-hair Stallionaires are set to return to reality television via VH1, of course in their very own 11-episode reality show aptly titled Real Chance of Love where the two brothers hope to find the woman of his dreams since both were turned down by Tiffany 'New York' Pollard in I Love New York 2. So, I guess it's also safe to say that Hoopz turned down Real's proposal during their brief time on I Love Money? Ha, ha! I swear people play too much! According to VH1.com, Real and Chance will get their much deserved, and much anticipated chance to find real love as 15 young ladies move into their Stallionaire ranch house and try to capture their hearts. In the final episode, Chance and Real will make the most difficult decision of their lives. With two women vying for each of their hearts, they must decide who they would like to take a real chance of love with, and who’s going home alone.
Real Chance of Love debuts on VH1 on November 3rd.
And in more VH1 reality show news, stay tuned for the second season of Irv Gotti's, Gotti's Way: Season Two which will also debut on November 3rd. It’s the second season for VH1’s Gotti’s Way and life goes on for Irv, Deb and the kids. This new season is about “breaking the cycle” - for Deb, that means taking the first steps towards independence and showing her kids that this is not the way a marriage is supposed to be. For Irv, the record industry, and in particular hip-hop, are in dire straits and there are no signs of change. Irv’s kids, Sonny, JJ, and Angie, continue their trials and tribulations of “growing up.” Even though non-traditional, they are still a family: Angie is dating and beginning to look at colleges, Sonny is becoming a talented basketball player, and JJ is still the baby in the family. This is definitely not the Cosbys’ or Run’s House…but it is clear that whatever way things turn out, they are going to be Gotti’s Way. .....
According to People.com, Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson is now engaged to her boyfriend of only a few months, David Otunga. Hudson's rep confirmed the engagement to the website saying, "I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in L.A." says the rep. Otunga, who is known as "Punk" from the reality show I Love New York 2, popped the question with a Neil Lane diamond ring on the Dreamgirls Oscar winner's 27th birthday. The couple, who have been dating less than a year, both hail from Chicago.
Now see, let me tell yall something: this engagement news baffles me. J. Hud dated her boyfriend James for several years and all of a sudden she's engaged to jump the broom to some already washed-up, no-neck-having, lawyer-turned-so-called reality show 'star' who she has only known for a couple of months? I'm not going to even go there with the rumors of ol' dude 'playing for the other team.' She better stop playing. But then again, she is releasing her debut solo album this month....plus her new movie The Secret Life of Bees opens in theaters next month.
However, if this is true, congratulations are in order. I guess..... I just hope she doesn't end up getting 'punked.'
Last week, I told you all the 'Bey-mocracy' was coming and she ain't wasting any time in getting herself back up in our faces. Also last week in Harlem, New York, the singer filmed her new music video If I Were a Boy, which is her first single from her upcoming album, tentatively titled Virtuoso Intellect or B'Ware. If I Were a Boy is also co-written and co-produced by Beyonce and will be released to radio on October 7th. Each record on Bey's new album is said to be "her most personal, reflective and revelatory collections to date." The follow-up LP for her 2006 album B'Day, her third studio effort is reportedly slated for purchase on November 18 under the courtesy of Columbia Records.
Anyhoo, the video portrays Mrs. Carter as one of 'New York's finest' while donning a black NYPD uniform complete with a holster and a set of handcuffs. And as you can tell by the 'arresting' photos below, Beyonce makes an almost convincing version of the folks whose job it is to protect and serve us....or whatever.
Beyonce also posed for a 'high fashion' photoshoot with photographer Tony Duran. Without a doubt, Beyonce is by far one of the most beautiful women in the industry, but what the hell is up with those vacant-looking facial expressions? She always look as if she's 'out for lunch.' What's even worse is that I've seen her with these same vacant-looking expressions on her face in her candid pics and in live interviews. Like I said, beautiful girl, but geesh!!!
MORE PICS OF BEYONCE ON THE SET OF HER NEW VIDEO + ADDITIONAL PHOTOSHOOT PICS OF THE SINGER AFTER THE JUMP! -------------------------------------
There's no new news to report on Chilli or the much delayed album which had a tentative release for September 2nd (of this year), but I do have several more new pics. Although I'm not sure if the picture of Chilli wearing a purple dress is an actual ad for her Bags by Chilli line, it is nice to see her dolled up from head to toe in an ensemble different from what we're used to seeing her wear. The folks over at CTP magazine dedicated its entire summer issue to Chilli, in an effort to drum up promotion for her upcoming projects (i.e. new album, handbag line, non-profit organization called 'Chilli's Crew') . For those of you wondering, Chilli's wardrobe in these (CTP magazine) pics were provided by Controversy Boutique located in Atlanta.
Hannah, who runs a brand new myspace fan page, visit it here dedicated to Chilli, emailed me more pics from the singer's photospread in CTP magazine. Thanks, Hannah! Remember to click the pics to see their full image.
Last week I told you all that although Chilli's album won't be released this year, the singer still took time to shoot promo shots for her solo debut. The beautiful photoshoot pics below were snapped by Atlanta-based photographer Calvin Evans.
