Drake a High End Designer????
Young Money’s Drake has released the first offering from his new clothing brand entitled October’s Very Own. The offerring comes in the form of a Chilliwack coat, a collaboration with Canada Goose, featuring a buffalo leather exterior, silk-lined interior, removable arctic fox fur trim, and 24-karat gold-plated hardware.
The price you ask?
$5,000 American Dollars.
There is absolutely nothing about this coat that’s worth $5,000. And the mere fact that Drake would release a coat with such a ridiculous price point without merit shows that his clothing brand will run parallel to his fashion sense.
Chile Bye! ’ll pass...
Such a TRAGEDY!

It's an amazing love story that shows love conquers all. And sadly, it came to an end last week. Former NFLer Chris Draft lost his wife of 1 month to cancer, a friend of Chris' confirms
35-year-old Chris Draft married the love of his life, Keasha, in a touching ceremony November 27th in Atlanta.
The bride was battling cancer and used a wheelchair to meet her groom down the aisle. But amazingly walked the last few steps, as seen in their wedding video below.
The fairytale came to an end Tuesday 12/26/11--one month to the day of their wedding--as Keasha (Rutledge) Draft lost her battle with cancer, a longtime friend of Chris' has comfirmed.
Chris' friends are also asking everyone to send prayers to the families as they navigate this difficult time. The couple's wedding "trailer" is below:
Anaheim native Chris has played for 7 teams during his NFL career which began with the Chicago Bears in 1998. He last played for the Washington Redskins in 2010. Chris dedicated much of his life to giving back to kids, families, service projects, and his own Chris Draft Family Foundation, which empowers families to live healthy lifestyles.
My thoughts and prayers are with the families.

Sheree Whitfield of ‘Real Housewives’ Has Found a New Man; You’ll Never Guess Who It Is
Sheree Whitfield of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” after a long and exhaustive search, has finally found a man who is not “intimidated” by her “success.”
The word “success” is relative because Whitfield has never constructed a modern definition of the word nor has she produced any verifiable evidence of this individual success.
In any event, while she finishes putting her DNA on a disastrous child-support payment court proceeding with ex-husband, former NFL star Bob Whitfield, Sheree has been seen creeping along Atlantic Station in Midtown Atlanta on a love quest.
According to the folks over at Rolling Out Sheree has been seeing Kermit Quinn of the band JukeBox.
The name Kermit Quinn rings a bell. He is the former member of Teddy Riley’s group Blackstreet (cycle 4) that cranked up a lot of R&B noise in the 1990s.
We know one thing: having experienced success on his own in the entertainment business, we doubt that Quinn will get intimidated by Sheree’s success.
Russell Simmons' & His Boo Melissa George Chills at The Beach
The Charmed actress, 35, looked pretty as a picture today as she trekked along the beach with her partner wearing a pink kaftan emblazoned with floral prints.
Despite still drying off her soaking wet hair as the pair enjoyed a holiday on the island of St. Barts, the Bag of Bones star looked beautiful as her wavy copper locks glistened in the Caribbean sunshine.
They laughed and joked their way past fellow beach-goers and at one point George was seen tenderly kissing her new love’s shoulder as they awaited collection.
The Australian – who is best-known for her role as Angel in the popular soap Home and Away – was so relaxed that she didn’t even care to put her tan shoes back on as she left the shore with the 54-year-old hip hop mogul.
Melissa and Russell made their public debut at a New York red carpet event back in August.
A week before the pair were seen kissing at a 2011 MLS All-Stars vs Manchester United game in New Jersey.
The Kardashian's Former nanny to write tell-all book
A former nanny who was employed by the Kardashian family is to write a tell-all book.
Pam Behan - who worked as a nanny, personal assistant and cook for Bruce and Kris Jenner for several years before the family shot to fame thanks to their reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' - is reportedly set to reveal all about the time she spent working in their home in a telling new tome.
According to TMZ.com, she describes Bruce's sons Brandon and Brody - who starred in 'The Hills' and has dated the likes of Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari - as "spoiled and disrespectful", and admits she came close to losing her job after slapping Brandon one day.
Despite the Kardashian sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe allegedly being "very fond" of Pam, the former nanny is said to have vowed to reveal "intimate details" about the whole family - who are worth a combined total of $65 million - in the upcoming tome.
While the book has been pitched to several "major" literary agents, it is unclear whether a deal has yet been agreed.
This is the latest blow for Kim, who recently announced she was divorcing husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.

Jay-Z Sued For Failing To Pay Workers Compensation
Jay-Z is facing a new lawsuit this time for “gambling with his employee’s health and safety.”
TMZ reports that Jigga is being sued by The Workers Compensation Board Of New York.
According to the board, the music mogul failed to pay workers’ compensation insurance for three months in 2009.
The insurance was said to cover domestic employees in Jay-Z’s house including his cooks, maids and drivers.
The board has since sued to collect $18,000 in fines for the transgression and a court has ordered Jay-Z to pay.
A source tells TMZ that the entire thing was a simple “clerical error.”

Pill Goes Off On Record Label Amidst Maybach Music Group Drop Rumors
Amidst rumors that he’s been dropped from Maybach Music Group, a frustrated Pill has released a series of tweets lashing out at his record label.
As previously reported, the rapper told The Boombox that rumors of his departure from MMG were false and perpetuated by “haters.”
“I’m not sure how they started actually [rumors of his departure] I noticed it when people started f—ing with me on Twitter, but I don’t know the source of it. I mean, it is what it is. It’s mostly Twitter — people that follow me or don’t follow me that hate on me daily, and wanna start s—.”
Now however, the signee who operates through Warner Bros is going off on the label for hindering his success.
According to Pill, his career was doing much better before WB and he landed movie deals and TV appearances on his own.
Now unfortunately with the “help” of a label, his career is at a standstill.
Obviously frustrated, he took to Twitter to write,
“No TV and No Radio.. U do the math.I bet u can name you favorite artist and the turn on the tv and see the video and hear it on the radio. It’s not rocket science. Radio and TV b4 I had a deal, none after and u ask why Pill ain’t blew all the way up. Artist sign deals, label doesn't do shit for them or don’t even know to work the artist. time wasted..
Ask Wiz Khalifa what Warner Bros did for him. I’ll wait.. dropped em. Atlantic signed em put em on TV and Radio and he sky rocketed. Mind you, whn I signed I had one of the biggest records in 09′ “Trap Goin Ham” never touched TV never touched radio. Now go back and do your research and see what unsigned artist was neck n neck with Drake’s So Far Gone in 09′. Pill 4180: The Prescription.
If I remember tht list correctly. It was Nicki Minaj, Drake, Pill, Wayne, Jeezy. Nw what the hell ws a new cumber like me doin on that list? Because IM DOPE!! That’s why, u ain’t gotta believe it but I know it and won’t ever stop until I get that spot I deserve. Peace. Thanx.Top 10 freshman cover of the New Times, unsigned hype MTV fire starter cover Creative Loafing, German magazine’s, French radio, Jimmy kimmel. Did a movie with Evan Ross and Brittany Snow, Had a documentary air at the UN summit in Geneva, Switzerland, Mark Ronson’s album, toured n London, countless shows in the states, Short Films, etc. and that with No TV or radio. Now imagine some push and TV and radio would do.”
AND FINALLY FROM “THE CRAZY PEOPLE SHOPPING AT WALMART” FILES
I guess wooly mammoths do still exist…What?!?! Yeah, that might be cashmere and not wool for all I know but I’ve never heard of a cashmere mammoth so just go with it. Maybe next time you can toss on some pants and then none of us will have to worry about it in the first place.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
