Over the weekend we were invited to attend Gi Gi’s Luxury Hair pop up shop in Atlanta. The new face of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Margeaux Simms was in attendance showing off the popular hair care line. Attendees enjoyed horderves and red sangrias from Chef Mel of Taste ATL.
While there we watched clients of Gi Gi’s receive full sew-in installs and had the opportunity to learn more about the company.
See more photos from the event below.
Special shout out to The Meme Agency for putting this successful event together and thanks for the invite!

Most people don’t joke around when it comes to owing them money, but in this instance it was all fun and games!
Yesterday in the wee hours of April Fools’ Day, Rihanna teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel’s camera crew to give him a taste of his own medicine. While Jimmy was sound asleep Rih and the crew crashed into his bedroom with confetti and plenty of dolla’ bills to throw around. Dressed up in all black like a martian, the singer put on an unforgettable performance for Jimmy to her new single Bitch Better Have My Money. After Jimmy woke up and realized what was happening to him he said:
Remember how souped we all were when Evelyn Lozada sat down with Iyanla after her break up with Chad? Chaaa this might be better! HA!
Karrueche has chosen to break her silence and is spilling tea on what it was like dating her longtime singer boyfriend Chris Brown. In an emotional heart to heart interview Karrueche will sit down with Iyanla Vanzant to set the record straight. For the first time ever Karrueche is opening up about Chris cheating on her, the decision to date Chris after the Rihanna “beating” and on what the break up was like after she found out about Chris’ alleged 9 month old baby.
Karrueche agreed to do this interview only because she was promised that things would remain positive. But when she felt like Iyanla didn’t believe her and was hounding her for answers Karrueche’s manager kicked Iyanla and the OWN crew out the “daw”. HA!
We’re told that things cooled down after a few hours and they were invited back into the home to finish up with the interview.
The show is set to air this Saturday on OWN at 8 pm.
And your favorite show Empire may have just gotten a tad bit better. Just the other day Tyrese hopped on Instagram as “Jody” and alluded that he may be joining Empire to get his girl “Yvette” back and that he isn’t feeling her new name Cookie.
I’m not cool with all these dudes feeling all up on Yvette and Its on TV? I heard they call her Cookie now? The homies are telling me I gotta gotta get my bitch back.. I guess I gotta change my name too and go do some show called #Empire? Cause that’s where Yvette is now under her alias #Cookie? Damn…. see you soon —–Jody
Whether Jody likes it or not Derek Luke a.k.a Cookie’s new man Malcolm had no issues letting him know that he can’t keep his hands out of Cookie’s Cookie Jar.
From one talented brother to the next @Tyrese you know how us darkskin brothers do. Jody couldn’t keep his hands off Yvette but now Malcolm can’t keep his hands out of that cookie jar#CookieMonster #teammalcolm #Empire
Lol I’m sorry I had to do it out of fun. I Kept seeing this post & I couldn’t pass it up anymore. Love you brother @Tyrese
“Oh Please” was the response that Roger from Showbiz 411 received from Phylicia Rashad when he brought up the names of the women that have accused Bill Cosby of “sexually harassing” them. She admits that she’s never seen the behavior from Cosby that these women speak of.
The two had a brief discussion in regards to the situation during an elegant lunch for the new movie Selma that took place at the Metropolitan Club. Although she made it very clear that she did not want to be a part of the public debate, she did have quite a few things to say.
Get into the interview below.
On Cosby being accused of drugging, raping and sexually harassing the accusers:
Forget these women. What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated.
I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.
On Bill’s wife Camille Cosby:
This is a tough woman, a smart woman. She’s no pushover. There is no question, Rashad said, that Camille Cosby has not been complicit or looked the other way as her husband terrorized women for the last 50 years.
Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled. This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?
She said Cosby himself is probably too proud to raise a defense. I countered that his silence reminded me of how Jerry Lewis reacted whe, after 50 years. the Muscular Dystrophy Association treated him like dirt. He refused to fight back. To quote a popular song from the 70s: “If you don’t know me by now, you will never never know me.”
Last night Nicki Minaj hosted and performed at MTV’s 2014 Europe Music Awards. Aside from rocking the stage the rapper she came fashionably prepared going through at least eight wardrobe changes.
So anywho, prior to the awards, word on the blogs was that Nicki and her “boyfriend” (hence fiance) Safaree Samuels had called it quits. To further support those allegations TMZ got the scoop on a recent incident that may have been the cause of the split.
Allegedly Nicki went Jazmine Sullivan on SB’s 2012 Merceded Benz and bust homeboy’s windows out of his car. She later tossed all of his clothes into a garbage can. The cops came and SB was escorted from Nicki’s home while Nicki walked away scot free because the car was in her name, which essentially means she can’t get in trouble for damaging her own property.
Since then SB has removed all of Nicki’s tattoos from his body and now Nicki is telling her side of the story in her new record Bed Of Lies. Last night she hit the stage with Skylar Grey in a black laced catsuit rapping lyrics like:
You can never make eye contacts
Everything you got was based off of my contacts
You a fraud but imma’ remain icon stat
Balenciagas on my boots with the python strap
You was caught up in the rush and you was caught up in the thrill of it
You was with me way before I hit a quarter mill in it
Put you in the crib and you ain’t never pay a bill in it
I was killin’ it now you got me poppin’ pills in it
I told Baby hit you I said, ‘This dude buggin’
Cause I was doin’ it for us I told em’ fu-k the public
Chris Brown sent every social media site into a frenzy last night when he came for Adrienne Bailon and Tamar Braxton. Apparently these two ladies had some “real sh-t” to say in regards to Chris’ relationship, on their daytime television show “The Real”, with his on and off girlfriend Karrueche Tran and Breezy wasn’t feeling it. So he took to Instagram with the following message:
“BRING THAT ASS HERE BOY” ADRIENNE BAILON…. You ole trout mouth a$$ b-tch. U tried it. Won’t u the same b-tch that was f-cking wit married men? U also was keeping up with the Kardashians! U can’t talk about relationship goals when u don’t even have life goals. Ain’t you a cheetah girl? Last time u was important n-ggas was riding spinners and wearing 6x talk Ts. You the same b-tch having threesomes like the rest of these hoes. U tried it too Tamara Braxton. U take the role of the ugly sister. It’s always the people wit no career that talk all the sh-t. Dat plastic surgery f-cked yo face up. B-tch look like she always saying “huh”? Muppet face ass! #basicb-tchproblems #thotiannas I don’t even need a photo for Tamar, that b-tch is beat in every photo! #icanmakeabrokeb-tchrichbutidontf-ckwitbrokeb-tches”
Adrienne Bailon has yet to respond, meanwhile Tamar had plenty to say. She started off with the following response:
#whenyourgirlhasatalkshowinsteadofcryingaboutyouwhileONone… you are asked to talk about certain things such as A.relationships B.family C.fashion D. Things that has to do with HER in life!@chrisbrownofficial@karrueche no one came at either of you but was simply using your relationship as an example of things us ladies go through in a relationship!! I do not know nor do I give a hot damn about your relationship personally…. honestly and respectfully I’m VERY sorry if you BOTH were offended about our girl chat…. however you WILL NOT think its ok to come at GROWN women and talk to either myself or @adrienne_bailon as if u have EVER has us each in your bed at ANY point in our lives! (Maybe your mind is clouded) NOTE TO SELF: u are NOT my MAN or my DADDY so you got me completely FUCKED up!…(like your reputation) I’m not 20 nothing years old and I am fine with all 3 #1 tv shows and making my dreams come true with Love&War and now #letmeknow…which is on iTunes
Moments later she followed up with the following video to further prove her point to Chris.
A video posted by Tamar Braxton (@tamarbraxtonher) on Nov 11, 2014 at 6:44pm PST
If you are wondering what started this entire debacle, take a peek at the full video below.
Karrueche had this to say about it:
Unlike most of you… I could care less about the opinions of others.. Drama doesn’t amuse me – so yes @tamarbraxton I do have a voice, just not like yours.. However my bf I can’t speak for.. We all know he has no chill. Just like everyone else out there – he has an opinion. Have you ever thought to yourself how it may feel being judged for everything you do and half the time people have no clue what is going on? You people invest so much of your time in other peoples lives and business and get mad when they have something to say back?! If you can dish it.. You gotta be able to take it.. A lot of you mistaken my quietness for stupidity, and thats fine because I don’t care what you think. Anyways- I’m not here for the drama. What do you gain from the names you call me?
Chris and Karrueche both deleted their comments. Hopefully this whole thing is over with.
It’s no secret that French Montana and Khloe Kardashian have been on and off for quite a while now. On Friday, Frenchie stopped by The Wendy Williams show to shed light on his current relationship and previous “fling” with Trina. When Wendy asked French is he and Khloe were “broken up for good” he said:
I mean I feel like you know every relationship, you break up you make up. Right now we’re on real good terms.
Wendy: So you’re still boyfriend and girlfriend?
See you go right to it Wendy. I mean we’re on real good terms she’s in a real special zone right now. She gone be my baby forever.
Wendy: Interesting. Interesting! Because people including me thought that you were dating for publicity to benefit you.
Naw. I don’t feel like love come like that. I feel like publicity, that’s just something people wanna’ roll with. But I feel like when you meet somebody you really like you don’t really worry about all that stuff.
During a visit Trina paid to Miami’s 103.5 The Beat she explained that she was the one who introduced her former boo to the Kardashian’s at a Yeezus concert that took place last November. French explains exactly what went down.
Wendy: Is it true that Trina is the one that introduced you to the Kardashian’s?
No, no not at all… Imma’ keep it all the way one hundred with you. Kanye invited me to the Barclays center to come to the show. Just so happen Kris and Kim was there. Then it just so happen that Trina knew Kim she said, “Hi, this is French” I mean that’s what it was she introduced me to them but…
Wendy: Is it true that Trina found out about you and Khloe while reading the internet but you and Trina were still together as a couple and you were double dipping?
Honestly I was never a couple with Trina. I was going through my divorce so I was kinda like having fun with life. I can’t claim nobody after I’m just going through a divorce.
Of course you can’t. Alimony is a bit-h. HA!
Although French’s divorce is finally settled Khloe’s isn’t. We’ll see how this all plays out on this season of Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons which premiered yesterday on E.
Yesterday Remy Ma stopped by the Wendy Williams show for a little chit chat. While there Wendy asked Remy what was one of the first things she did once she got out of prison. Remy says she took a shower, ate some Popeyes then got her hair done. HA! She also told Wendy that while she was locked up she got into a few altercations over her show because there was only one tv for 60 girls and Remy would argue that she’s watching Wendy.
Remy also talked about how she maintained her relationship with her son and husband Papoose while she was locked up. She mentioned that staying in contact via phone and letters are very important. Having conjugal visits probably helped their marriage out a lot, I’m just sayin’. Hehe.
When asked about Nicki Minaj she explained that there is no beef and even shouted her out during her freestyle rap. Remy’s new mixtape I’m Around will drop later this week.
Keeping up with Mr. and Mrs. West has been somewhat of a challenge these days. Kim has been spotted out with baby North quite often while Kanye’s been in the studio working on new music. Last night the fashionable pair took a break from their hectic schedules to grab dinner at the Little Door Restaurant in LA.
Kim stayed true to her personal style in a long-sleeve white top, ivory colored fuzzy high waist skirt and a pair of gold Tom Ford chained sandals. Her hubby looked comfy in a flannel, light-washed jeans and white tee that he paired with his gray Bottega Vanetta ankle boots.
Meanwhile looks like new couple Erica Mena and Bow Wow are spending lots of time together.
These two were spotted turning up on Tuesday at Supperclub in LA. Bow Wow recently tweeted a picture of Erica with the caption “Perfection” next to it. Moments later he tweeted:
My lady is the sh-t…And yeah I love her
You might be saying when did all this happen. But the two have been going strong since earlier this year. They shared their first kiss publicly on 106 & Park and were even spotted vacationing in Puerto Rico together.
Since Erica’s made her debut to the world on Love And Hip Hop she’s found a way to remain relevant after each season. First it was Rich Dollaz, then Cyn Santana, now Bow Wow. Is this for real or could it be just another publicity stunt for Erica? Not to mention, Bow Wow could use the added exposure himself.
Can we expect to see Bow Weezy on the next season of LHHNY?
