ARETHA AND HER MAN A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO
Soul legend Aretha Franklin is on a crash diet in a bid to lose weight before her wedding next month. The singer has signed up for that Jenny Craig Diet and is limiting herself to 1,750 calories-a-day in an effort to slim down. Franklin says, “I’m at 1,750 calories a day and I’m starving. “You just have to get used to portions and changing your lifestyle.” The heavyweight diva, who will wed long term boyfriend Willie Wilkerson, Jr. next month, insists she knows the Jenny Craig diet works – because she has seen amazing results in the past.
She tells “Sister 2 Sister magazine,”
“I lost 23 or 24 pounds to begin with, but it’s kind of a strain when you get to 23 or 24 pounds. That’s why I got off of it. “It’s a strain because you’re eating the Jenny Craig-type meals, which are very good. But you can only eat them for so long before you want some barbecue ribs or some pigs feet. “Once you get off that Jenny Craig thing and you start eating what you’ve been eating, it’s all over.”
WTF QUOTE OF THE WEEK COMES FROM T-PAIN
In a recent interview with SOHH, T-Pain comments on Ray-J’s quivering member in a little too much detail. Read what he said:
“…It’s not many guys who can go after Ray J. The man got a huge meat, okay? … He got length on him. I got the width, the shit is wide. He got a foot on him. Man got a foot on him. Much respect Ray. Man to man, no homo. I know when respect is due. The man swangin’. Ya’ll seen that shit, ya’ll know the man swangin’.”
USHER GONNA WHOOP SOME ASS OVER TAMEKA??
Word is Usher is so mad that radio stations have been dissing his fiance, Tameka Foster, that he has been calling radio hosts to blast them for talking shit.
Tom Joyner claims the singer recently threatened to “whoop his ass” after Joyner joked about rumored tension between Foster and Usher’s mom, Jonetta Patton. “Who’s afraid of Usher?” Joyner asked the crowd about his Fantastic Voyage Cruise, prompting laughter from ship guests.
I also heard he called other radio stations claiming her was gonna fight them. Damn! Tameka got his ass!
