Two of your fave YBF chicks, Toni Braxton and LisaRaye, were out promoting their upcoming reality shows recently and we have the fab pics of both ladies inside.


Toni Braxton worked it out in her sexy hot pink dress.  She looked stunning earlier today when she stopped by the 2011 Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction Kick-Off.

The auction was held at the Lindt Chocolate Shop in NYC and like a true diva, she did a wardrobe change.

But it wasn’t just bout the chocolate eggs for Toni, she was also there to promotes her new reality show "Braxton Family Values" we told you about.


Toni’s had a rough battle recently with the cancer, debt, and divorce….but she still looks fab.

And coming soon to TVOne….

The woman with a white outfit for every occasion, LisaRaye, is prepping for the start of "LisaRaye: The Real McCoy" Season 2.

Chick’s skin is flawless.


She was in Atlanta where she stopped by the "Steve Harvey Morning Show" to announce that season 2 of her show starts on April 7.  She posed with Carla Ferrell, Steve Harvey, Shirley Strawberry and Thomas Miles.

She also has a second series she will star in called "Single Ladies" on Vh1 along with Stacey Dash.  That show begins on April 7th on VH1.  Was this pose really necessary though Ms. Raye?

You can watch the interview on "The Steve Harvey Project" on Tuesday, April 12, at 9:00pm on Centric.


And Lisa was all smiles as she left the studio.  She has a lot to be happy about these days.  With two shows on the air at the same time, seems like her comeback is official.  Well….you know what I mean….

Jim Jones Talks "Love & Hip Hop", Marrying Chrissy, And His Nearly Fatal Car Accident

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-03-2011


When rapper Jim Jones stopped by Richmond’s Power 92.1 to promote his new album, he opened up about his new Capo album dropping April 5th, his near death experience, and about his relationship with Chrissy Lampkin on "Love And Hip Hop."  See the highlights inside…..


Jim Jones called into TT Torrez’s show on 92.1 to chat about his upcoming album Capo being released April 5th and his take on marriage and reality tv.  Here are the highlights:

On getting Prodigy on his upcoming album:
Jim said he and Prodigy have mutual friends so it was easy to contact him.  But he added, Prodigy had a curfew (before being released from a half-way house) and would come to the studio to record at 7 in the morning.

On his album Capo:
He wishes he could have pushed the release date back to promote it a little more, but industry politics got in the way.

On why Dipset broke up:
He said they were like siblings – and siblings fight. But now they’re working on a Dipset tour.

On getting into car accident:
He was involved in a car accident on the Virginia state line while coming from North Carolina. He says he should have died but God surrounded him with angels and now he sees life differently. 

On whether he and Chrissy are getting married:
"You have to watch the show." Oh Jimmy….

On if we’ll see anything sexual poppin’ off between him and Chrissy on the show:
He said they’re not doing anything sexual…on television. [laughs]

On if he ever slept with Somaya Reese:
His answer was no…in a suspiciously roundabout way.  He semi-joked, “Tell your Twitter follower to find the highest building in Virginia and jump.”

On how he deals with Chrissy and his mother not getting along:
He said it’s tough dealing with them not getting along.

On his reaction when Chrissy proposed to him:
He was definitely surprised and he "tips his hat to her."

On if he thinks Somaya can rap and if Olivia can sing:
[laughs] He said he has no opinion on Somaya and he’s not trying to interrupt anyone’s hustle. He said, however, Olivia can definitely sing. *eyebrows raised*


Listen to the audio here.  Are you feelin’ Jim and Chrissy’s relationship on "Love & Hip Hop."  I have my opinions…but I’ll keep them to myself….for now.

MUSIC FAB: Wiz Khalifa Promotes New Album "Rolling Papers" With Amber Rose

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-03-2011

Wiz Khalifa’s first major release, Rolling Papers, dropped on Atlantic Records yesterday.  And now Wiz is blazing the trail doing promo work for the disc.  He stopped by "106 & Park" yesterday and also did an in-store album signing.  And of course he couldn’t do it alone…Amber Rose was by his side.  See pics inside…..

For his signing, BEST BUY played host to Wiz Khalifa in NYC as he greeted fans who came out to support the release of Rolling Papers.



And guess who showed up by his side?

Amber brought along her signature "pucker" to support her man.


Listen to Wiz talk about his fans, and see his fans talk about him here:



And later on that day, Wiz aka Cameron Jibril Thomaz dropped by BET Studios and "106 & Park" to promote the album.  

But look who else was in the house….Snoop Dogg.  I can only imagine what the "green" room smelled like after he and Wiz left the building.


His single "Roll Up" was number one on the countdown and he performed it live. 


Wiz does have an interesting style about himself that is very endearing.


Are you going to go out and get the disc?


And later that night, Wiz  hosted a record release party in NYC at the Roseland Ballroom.  Others in attendance were Trae The Truth, Jay-Z, Lyor Cohen, Lil Cease and French Montana .  The show of love was so overwhelming that Wiz broke down and shed a few tears on stage.  Watch the video below:
