Diamonds and Gents 2014 BET Honors with Wayne Brady I can't wait to honor you.  He did a wonderful job hosting.  He was super hilarious and I love Anthony Anderson he tried to high jack the show.  But, Wayne Brady wasn't having any of that foolishness.  Love it!!  He did a free style rap.  Letting them know oh yeah I can do that " No Problem"!

But, anyway the honorees were Ice Cube yay, yay, Carrie Mae Weems, Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy and Kenneth Chenault (CEO of AMEX).  Performances by Smokey Robinson, Tamar Braxton, Janelle Monae, Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey, Karen Clark Sheard and Aretha Franklin and family.

Now, Let's dive into these performances.  Tamar Braxton was wearing the monkey uncle out that dress you better work Mrs. Braxton-Herbe…

Nicki Minaj being Sued for Hair

"Subscribe now to my blog you can connect it to your Yahoo, Google and or Twitter Account!"

Diamonds and Gents Nicki Minaj is getting sued for her hair.  Now last year she had to Donald Trump my dude because they had some creative differences.  Well, needless to say he is suing her for $30 mil.  That's right $30 mill.  He claims he is responsible for her success.  Her brand was build on her hair and she even market his hair.

He suing for 4 of her wigs to be exact.  He said  Nicki Minaj talked him out of plenty of money in the past.  Said it wouldn't be good for there work relationship.  That came from him being offered an reality show. 

Needless to say $30 million dollars is lot of money for a wig Mr. Dude.  Just Saying.

What you think do she owe her success to him? Was it the talent or the hair? You be the judge.  Comment down below.

Movie Review: About Last Night

"Listen to Living It Up on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem at 1pmct Tomorrow!"

Diamonds and Gents I enjoyed the movie except the profanity that they had coming out of Regina Hall mouth.  What do I mean? Well, she was suppose to be a dentist, but they had her sounding like a round the way kind of girl or something.  Just classless. How you a dentist and you can't use better words.  That really made no sense.  For the character that didn't fit to me.

But, anyway it was a comedy about 2 different couples meeting in the winter time and breaking up.  Then, getting back together.  You know the break-up to makeup scenario.  Well, they were all different career professionals that lived in New York.  Needless to say they end up moving in.  Realizing she had compromising without knowing if the man even loved her.  She broke up with him and moved out. 

If I can give this movie gems from 1 to 5.  I give it a 3.  If you would like to see About Last Night it is in the…

Twitter Beef Alert: Towanda Braxton takes to Twitter

"Listen to Living It up Today at 1pm ct on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem !"

Diamonds and Gents Towanda has been full of it the whole season.  Especially, when it comes to younger sister Tamar.  Braxton Family Values has been on and popping with the shade that comes from Towanda toward Tamar.  All I have to say is what is Towanda problem REALLY?

Listen every time somebody ask her she never got an answer.  She always say watch the first 3 seasons.  Ok sister you ought to be over it.  I don't see the problem.  That you'll haven't worked out.  The problem is as soon as Tamar decided to pursue her dream.  That's when the problem came in.

Well, needless to say the fans took to Twitter and Towanda came at one.  Something ugly.  Now we here know about Vince tax lien.  But, what will be the point of Family bringing that it up on social media.  Oh by the way Towanda he can pay.  My man worth more then what he owe. 

Wow!  Weigh in Diamonds and Gents!  Wha…

Lil Kim is Preggers Congrats

"Listen to Living It Up tomorrow at 1pm ct on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem !"

Diamonds and Gents guess who showed up to Fashion Week in New York with a baby bump.  That's right Lil Kim this will be the rapper 1st baby.  Now some stories say that the baby father is Mr. Papers the rapper. 

What makes us come with that conclusion?  Mr. Papers is tweeting it and IS ON Instragram WITH IT.  Taking full credit for the new baby.  Lil Kim hasn't said who her baby father is.  So needless to say there hasn't been any denying it either. 

All we have to say over at Team that Gem is congrats!

What you think? Is Mr. Papers trying to be more then a New York based rapper and want mainstream? Or is he really the Father?

"Listen to Living It Up Saturday at 1pm ct on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem I will be interviewing running mate to Tio Hardiman, Brunell Donald they are running for Illinois Governor and Lt. Governor!"


Diamonds and Gents I was reading Centric blog the other day and it was reported that Diddy and Cassie got engaged.  Now, we have found out that Cassie put a post on Twitter saying she is not engaged.  She reports that she needs more out of her relationship. 

Cassie puts this post up(got from necolebitchie.com) and then later deletes it:


Well, all I have to say is honnee whatever you need I hope you get.  Don't let Diddy go now. All I'm say is when the brother love he love hard.  Ask JLo.

What you think should Diddy wait until she is ready or should he move on? Comment down below.

Pebblez Da Model Found GUILTY

"Listen today to Living It Up on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mstra-thatgem at 1pm central time!"

Diamonds and Gents I told y'all it was going to end like this.  Natasha Stewart also known as Pebblez Da Model was convicted of manslaughter.  Well If you not familiar with the story; In 2012 Pebbles referred a young lady to a wack job claiming to be a nurse for elective cosmetic surgery.  Get this for butt injections which cost 37 year old Karima Gordon of Atlanta her life.

Needless to say she was also convicted of  conspiracy to commit culpable negligent manslaughter.  Wait the kicker is she can face up to 20 years in prison for both charges.  Y'all do know the referral fee she excepted was only $200.00.  That $200.00 about to cost you everything Ms. Pebblez it's a shame.  I did report this when the story hit.

Check out the video:
Well, all I have to say is be careful ladies.  These people are putting saline solution for industrial use into you.  Not the one that…
