"Check out top 10 count down Tomorrow on GEMSpotTV click the tab above!"


Diamonds and Gents Chrissy was doing so good.  Now Chrissy really?  Ok so Chrissy got arrested Sunday after another woman sitting on the same sofa in the bar and then accidentally bumping into someone.  You read it right beat the breaks off that woman.  Chile beat her so bad had to send her to the hospital to get stiches over her eye.  Witnesses say the girl(42 yr. old stylist) was a bloody mess.

Well anyway she was charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning.  One thing you gotta know Jim Jones was to the rescue to get his boo out.

Robin Roberts GAY?

"Check out special from A Diamond In A Ruff Web Series Tonight behind the scenes and bloopers!"


Diamonds and Gents I hope you all are having a lovely holiday!  Well Breaking News there are reports brewing that Robin Roberts thanked her girlfriend Amber of 10 years for being by her side through her illness.

Now wait now.  She said everyone around her knew professionally(co-workers) and publicly(family and friends).  She never lived her life in the shadows.  So explain why no one didn't know publicly yet.  So anyway, she said she had to finally acknowledge her publicly for being there for her.  "She was there in 2007 through my illness and also in 2012.  She seen good bad and ugly and was right there."  I must say this one shock me.

What you think shocked or you knew? Comment down below.

Justin Bieber Leaves the press P.O.

"Don't forget t catch my Christmas Special on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem !"

Diamonds and Gents see this type of stuff happen when you don't have any home training.  So Justin Bieber shows up to the red carpet for his movie premiere 2 hours late.  Baby and the press was mad about it. Then he stops and talks to no one not the press no one!  The kicker to it all is Usher his mentor, stopped and talked to the press even his grandparents talk to the press.

E News was even talking about how upset everyone was and how important the red carpet is to the movie.  Well, I hope it was worth it.  On top of that the fans broke through an barricade and his bodyguard was about to them paws on the paparazzi. 

Well with these antics how do you feel about Mr. JB?  Comment down below.

Khloe Gets her Payout from the Divorce

"Don't forget to catch the Christmas Special on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem!"


Diamonds and Gents oh yes you read it right.  Well it's no secret unless you've been under a rock.  Lamar and Khloe are getting a divorce, because my girl as been there for Lamar and through high episode my boy did a video.  Oh yeah confessing LOL.  Where they do that at right?

So Khloe will get an amount up to $7 million dollar pay out.  Now, I know you may be like he is worth 116 million.  But, he had an ironclad prenup no way around it.  So let me break it down Khloe gets to keep there $4 million dollar mansion, for every year they stayed together she got $500,000 ok so they stayed together four years, that amounts up to $2 million.  Then, she gets to keep her million dollar engagement ring.

Well, Ms. Khloe said she will give anything to get her broken-heart mended she doesn't care about the dollars.

Well, what you think about this?  Comment down below.

Terrence Howard Missed Court Date & was Evicted

"Check out GEMSpotTv  5pct for a celeb dish and Mob Wives ReCap Click the Tab above!"


Diamonds and Gents The Best Man Holiday star got evicted from his Broadway apartment in May.  Apparently, because he was behind on his rent in the sum of $51,907.85.  The Landlord filed a case against Mr. Howard and the court date was a few days ago.  Oh yeah and why my man didn't show up. 

So the judge founded in favor of the landlord.  But, wait the judge won't take the amount the landlord is claiming into play.  So the judge file a continuum in hopes of Mr. Howard showing up to defend himself.

Now, listen up Terrence you get your tail to that court room and handle your business, because that's a lot of money.  Just Saying.

If you haven't went and seen Best Man Holiday go see it.  It was good!

"Check out GEMSpotTV there are several videos up.  MOB Wives New Blood REVIEW!"


Good morning Diamonds and Gents!  Chile, Lamar Odom has lost all his mind.  So him and his shirtless friend are doing a video.  Now, in said video Lamar is rapping about cheating on his loyal wife Khloe Kardashian.  Now Ms. Khloe has stuck by this fool side through all his drug abuse and everything. 

Any who, he talking about how he still can make money without the NBA and all.  So TMZ spotted Khloe with her wedding ring boarding a plane on her way back home.  Then, I guess she learned about the video because a couple of days later you did not see that ring anymore.  Chile to much.

Khloe said this is the final straw no you not gonna be a drug addict and you cheating.  I'm a Kardashian get yo' life!

CTA Cleaning CUTBACKS

Diamonds and Gents that live in Chicago and you use public transportation to commute back and forth to work it's time to start complain.  Why That Gem?  Well, those that use the public transportation here in Chicago know that before they start this insinuative to have ex-cons cleaning the L during the day (By the way that cost them only 2.9 million a year.).  The L smelled like urine and there were snot tissue everywhere and it was just simply bad. 

Now I must say the Greenline which I think was the worst of them all is clean now. We have to deal with this so called fast system called Ventra.  Now we have to deal with stank to.  No, no CTA!  You all need to figure out a way to come up with a way to keep the daily clean up going.  That over night stuff will not work.…

Former South African President Nelson Mandela R.I.P.

"Don't forget to mark your calendars for Christmas Special http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem !"


Diamonds and Gents Oh wow it's true Former South African President Nelson Mandela dies at 95.  Mr. Mandela was in prison for 27 years for opposing apartheid.  He emerged from jail became his country first black president in 1994.  He served as President until 1999.

I actually remember when he won Presidency how much the people in America celebrated. I didn't understand why we were celebrating, until my mom explained it to me. Then I understood and even was super surprised of the struggle. I remember thinking wow he rose to the top and became President.

He truly embodies a life of struggle and triumph can be accomplished if you don't give up or in.  There is a movie coming about his life with Idris Elba playing him.  Go check it!

Do you remember when Nelson Mandela became president? What empowers you about Mr. Nelson Mandela?  Leave your comments down belo…
