Rihanna to Appear on “Saturday Night Live” Again

Posted April 16, 2012 7:21 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Rihanna will hit the “Saturday Night Live” stage for the third time on May 5. New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will host.

She’ll no doubt perform a live musical performance, but there is no word if she’ll be reprising her role with Shy Ronnie with Andy Shamberg who is rumored to be leaving the show.  They have done the skit during both of her previous performances, so maybe so.  Rihanna’s performance with Shy Ronnie landed an Emmy nomination.  Rihanna’s appearance is to promote both her album Talk That Talk and her film debut in the upcoming “Battleship.”

Rihanna is also among the confirmed artists to perform at this year’s Rock In Rio Madrid, in Spain! She will be the last artist to perform at Escenario Mundo on July 5. Visit the official website for more info.

Rihanna has performed at last year’s Rock in Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (watch here). Rihanna Daily’s Rodrigo was there and had an amazing experience. Make sure to buy your tickets, Spanish Navy!

Tiki Barber’s Wedding Plans Pushed Back Because He’ll Be Still Married

Posted April 16, 2012 4:17 PM By Deirdre B Pride

I’m not sure what the rush is…..

Former NFL star Tiki Barber has to delay his wedding to the former intern he met while working at NBC because he won’t be divorced in time.   He was fired from NBC after the network invoked his contract’s morality clause when the affair with Miss Johnson became public.  Miss Johnson was 23 at the time and working as an intern for the network.

Tiki planned to marry Traci Lynn Johnson, 25,  on May 12, but he’ll still be legally married to Ginny Cha, the mother of his 4 children.

He left his wife in 2010 after 11 years of marriage while she was pregnant with his twin daughters. She’s been trying to get alimony and child support, but Tiki says he can’t afford the $150,000 a month she’s asking for.

The New York Post reports that a friend says Barber and Miss Johnson has pushed back their wedding until this summer after Barber’s divorce took longer than expected.  Miss Johnson had a bridal shower at a trendy bar last month, even though he’s still married.  Too tacky.

Although Tiki claimed he cannot not afford his wife’s demands,it is rumored that there was some type of divorce settlement.

Tupac’s Mom Loved His Coachella Hologram Performance

Posted April 16, 2012 3:32 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Although there were people all over the net appalled by the performance.  Tupac’s mom joined the majority that totally loved it.  I thought it was the most amazing performance I have ever seen.  It was just nice to feel like he was still here, if only for one night.

Dr. Dre asked Afeni Shakur, Pac’s mom, for approval to incorporate Pac into his performance — and she said yes. As a thank you,  Dre made a donation to Pac’s charity … The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.  Nate Dogg was originally supposed to appear as a hologram too, but the decision was made at the last minute not to use him. Nate got a video tribute instead.

That would have cracked a lot of heads.

Afeni and Tupac Shakur

‘s famously protective mother Afeni Shakur agrees with the rest of the planet — the rapper’s resurrection at Coachella this weekend … in the form of an incredibly lifelike hologram … was mind-blowingly awesome.

A rep for Afeni tells TMZ, she was absolutely positively THRILLED with Tupac’s virtual performance — when he appeared alongside Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg during the headlining show at Coachella last night … walking back and forth across the stage like he was actually present.

Afeni didn’t attend the performance — but we’re told she watched it unfold live on the Internet … but while it was thrilling, the entire experience was bittersweet.

The rep says Dr. Dre asked Afeni for approval to incorporate Pac into his performance — and she said yes. As a thank you, we’re told Dre made a donation to the rapper’s charity … The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

TMZ also spoke with Dre’s crewmate Daz Dillinger — who tells us, Nate Dogg was originally supposed to appear as a hologram as well, but the decision was made at the last minute not to use him. Nate got a video tribute instead.

In Case You Missed It: Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion (1 of 3)

Posted April 16, 2012 3:16 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Season 4 of Real Housewives Reunion was not without the fireworks…..umkay?

The very rich NeNe was into it with a bit everyone, but I am not mad at her.  She had the best line of the night…”I do not want a dildo up my azz today” H*ll, it just ain’t her thing.  Some people don’t want their bedroom steez on display for everyone to see.  That has never been classy.

Kandi is in love and she’s also a sex toy mogul.

Sheree was chewed up and spit out.  From her dreams of Neverland to her *legal whispers* with Bob Whitfield, and Phandra, the lady never stood a chance.  She has been deemed the queen of throwing people under the bus and I must agree.  We have two more shows and this lady still hasn’t seen Marlo and I can’t wait.  Everyone knows that Sheree was fired by Bravo by now, but that hadn’t happened when they were taping the reunion yet.  She was fired because of her outlandish demands……It sounds like she is lacking funds and was in desperate need of more.  Chateau Sheree (Neverland) has been nothing, but a pile of dirt for months. Bringing up Bryce was a low blow…..that’s a sign of a desperate individual.  That boy is a grown man and what he chose to do was his problem.  Sheree needs to get a life.

Kim sat there lying.  This chick was shopping with Big Poppa’s money and storing it up for years.  She would always say he bought this and that.  Notice how she wanted to make it known that she was pregnant from the giddy up, so she can talk as much mess as she wanted without out getting choked up.

Phaedra, Atlanta’s southern bell, is always known for keeping her cool and she maintained that stance, even while declaring Sheree queen of throwing folks under the bus.

Remember we will meet again Thursday at 9:00pm (est) for part 2.  I was so into the show, that I forgot all about twitter at times.  While the drama was at a minimum at times during the season, the reunion was nothing like that and did not disappoint.  It was pretty good.
