Porsha Williams Explains How "High Caliber Men" Try To Get At Her...And Why She's Already Dating

Posted: 10 Jan 2014 08:35 AM PST

In today's example of why there are plenty of men--even those of "high caliber"--who love a trophy chick, Porsha Williams is dishing about re-entering the dating scene.  And nope, her lack of common sense and intelligence don't seem to matter for some men.


Deets inside...

Who needs intelligence or the ability to actually have a job....when you can work a weave and a beat face like nobody's business. The pretty & bubbly Porsha Williams of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" dished to ABC News Radio Online that she's been back on the dating scene since the month after her divorce from Kordell Stewart was finalized. 

She's also talking about why she's still ready to be someone's wife--as long as he's attractive and wants to be married--and she's fielding dating offers that come through her publicist and manager.  We can only wonder if any of these men sent her an Underground Railroad For Dummies book as well.

Here are the highlights:

On Why She Decided to Date One Month After Divorce Finalized:
"Well I'm a woman and the heart it loves hard and you can't just snap your fingers and tell it to stop caring for somebody. I definitely care for anybody's well being that I dated. But as far as me holding onto that and it hindering new love in my life, I don't think so."

On Men Contacting Her Through Her Manager and Publicist for Dates:
"Men of high caliber they just don't pick up the phone and call you. They have a way of letting you know that they're your secret admirers and I'm enjoying it. Some of them are special."

What She Looks for in a Man to Date:
"The next boyfriend definitely needs to be husband material because I am a hopeless romantic so I definitely want to get married again. I need God to tell me that he's the one and I'm going to take my time until I get that; until it has resonated in my soul. He needs to be handsome. He needs to be God-fearing. He needs to be about family. It's a list of things. I'm also willing to compromise, but at this point in my life I want it all and I'm not gonna settle.

Why She Changed Her Name Back to Williams After Initially Wanting to Keep Stewart:
"I am officially Porsha Williams. I was holding onto something and I really can't explain to you what it was. But just as a woman we have the right to change our minds. I just want to leave my own legacy and I want to build up who I am, and be able to leave that with that name Williams


Good luck Porsha!  We know she means well...

REALITY FAB: Is This The New Cast Of "Love & Hip Hop: LA"? We Hear It's NOT True....

Posted: 10 Jan 2014 07:06 AM PST

 photo lahhla.png

The cast of "LAHH LA" is gearing up to start filming.  And even though a list of "confirmed" stars is now circulating, we're told it's NOT true....

Back in October, we broke the news that Mona Scott Young was expanding the "LAHH" brand into other cities and Los Angeles was the next destination.  Now, after months of specualtion, we have a hint at who some of the new castmembers COULD be. 

Producers supposedly told TMZ that the cast will include singer Brooke Valentine, radio DJ Yesi Ortiz, rapper Hazel-E, and video vixen Bria Myles. Of course, there needs to be a huge hip hop star.....because they haven't found one yet.  Sadly....Ray J was unavailable.

We reached out to Mona Scott Yong to confirm the cast and she (naturally) told us that it's all wrong.  And no final decisions have been made.  She said told

"I am looking at LA, but as usual, they've got it all wrong. No final decisions on cast. And most definitely haven't started shooting a thing.

So there you have it.  And just in case you're still wondering who these folks are anyway:

JUST MARRIED! Bobbi Kristina & Nick Gordon...

Posted: 09 Jan 2014 07:52 PM PST

Well...she went and did it.  Bobbi Kristina Brown is now officially married to her non-brother Nick Gordon.  Check out how she revealed the news about their wedded bliss inside...

For over a year now, we've seen 20-year-old Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon slowly but surely professing their love for each other.  They seemed to find solace in each other once Whitney Houston--Bobbi Kris' mother and Nick's guardian--passed away.  And the Houston family didn't seem to be a fan of their newfound relationship.

During the Lifetime reality show "The Houstons, we saw BK's Aunt Pat and the rest of the family expressing their issues with the relationship.  And grandma Cissy told friends and even wrote Bobbi K. an open letter about not being pleased with the twosome's behavior.

But y'all know you can't stop young love.   And tonight, B.K. announced she and Nick are happily married.  And she even posted pics of their new wedding bands, and her new name--Bobbi Kristina Houston Gordon:

She said:

It also looks like they have some projects of their own on deck.   She said right afterwards:

#ClassicHollywood #RoyalByBirth This. Is. Me BAM! @nickdgordon iloveubaby bouts change the world,#GETREADY!


 photo BaieW95IQAAXQZPjpg_large_zps4b55fb21.jpg

We have a feeling most in the Houston family won't be feeling any of this.  But hopefully, for Bobbi Kris' sake, this all works out like the fairytale she wants it to be.

Melyssa Ford Says Her Relationship With Flo Rida Was "Doomed", They Had NOTHING In Common, And Addresses Karrine Steffans

Posted: 09 Jan 2014 01:03 PM PST

 photo 8295fe0a792611e38fdb120936cfcba4_7.jpg

"Blood Sweat And Heels" star Melyssa Ford appeared on "The Breakfast Club" this morning where she dished on "video vixens" and why her relationship with Flo Rida was "doomed". 


More inside.....

On this morning's broadcast of "The Breakfast Club", "Blood Sweat And Heels" star Melyssa Ford came on to dished on her hit show, which debuted to huge ratings on Bravo, and she opened up about her past as a video vixen, and shed light on her relationship with Flo Rida. Here are highlights:

On why she signed on for “Blood Sweat And Heels”:
“I’m connected to my relationship with God and I listen to it. I always felt like the right opportunity had not come across my path. But I always knew that if I was going to do a reality show it would be with Bravo and it would be a show just like this one. A show about single successful women whose careers are not based on being funded by some man as a hobby. We’re self-starters.”

On being a video vixen:
I was a university student and I was putting myself through school. I had my priorities straights. In six years…I did twenty videos. I kinda took my popularity and branded it and leveraged myself…..I haven’t done a video in ten years so to be defined by one pocket in time is a little annoying.

On the negative attention aimed at video vixens and the Superhead book:
Karrine….I don’t know her personally. When I was on video sets…no one knew who she was. I didn’t think she really existed because I didn’t know anyone who’d ever seen her before. Her name just floated around like this big mystery. And then this book came out and it defined an entire group. I was like……hold on one second. Your story and mine are two very different.

Was she ever “solicited” on video sets?
I was the Queen of "No."

On selling real estate on “Blood Sweat And Heels”:
She says she had just gotten her real estate license when she got an email from Bravo about the show. She has sold $2million in real estate and has several relationships with major lenders and banks. She made a point of proving that she REALLY IS A LICENSED Real Estate Agent.

On dating:
Melyssa says she’s single and broke up with someone recently.

On Flo Rida:
Though they dated and broke up at least three times between 2009 and 2011, she says it was “doomed” and they never had anything in common. Although she never said he wasn’t smart or intelligent (is was seriously implied), she described his conversational skills as “limited." Shocker.

On snooping:
She revealed that one of her boyfriends cheated on her and she found out because she found a sex tape (on VHS). She never confirmed if this “ex” was Flo Rida.

On Eva Marcille calling her a golddigger:
"She’s entitled to her opinion. It's inaccurate."

On being cheated on:
"I’m a Ritz cracker to some men but to another guy I might be a Saltine. If guys aren’t in that committed state of mind then they’re going to step out on their chick.

LeBron and Savannah braved the arctic cold (they're from the midwest so they're used to it) and looked happy as pie to have a night out together.  Especially before the big game tonight against the Knicks.  And it looks like Bron brought along one of the juices from Savannah's new The Juice Spot business.  Nice!

Michael Beasley carried his cute youngsters out of his b-day party and gave one of the kiddies kisses before getting in the car.  Awww doting daddy cuteness.

And while most players brought their wives/significant others along, D-Wade flew solo.  His new fiancee Gabrielle Union has been on a whirlwind press tour for "Being Mary Jane" on both coasts.

And new mommy Adrienne Bosh made sure she was on her man's arm last night:

Bron and D-Wade snapped some pics with the birthday boy.

And his whole team was there to celebrate.  By the way, even though Mario Chalmers is front and center in the pic at the party, he won't be playing at tonight's game due to a tendonitis injury.
