VIVICA AT HER PARTY EARLIER THIS WEEK (GETTY IMAGES)
Word has it that Vivica’s B-day Party had a whole bunch of drama going on behind the scenes. She was allegedly getting her drink on even though she wasn’t supposed to, Remy Ma wasn’t invited but she showed up anyway, and a check bounced. Read the full report below:
Vivica A. Fox ‘s glam New York birthday party Tuesday night turned into a thorny mess of allegations yesterday, with her own stylist claiming she was drinking alcohol in violation of a court order.
But the first bump in the evening came when a promised Rolls-Royce Phantom failed to appear at Mr. Chow to take Fox to the party. Her dinner companion, Star Jones, dropped her off instead.
Then there was a red carpet kerfuffle when Bronx rapper Remy Ma arrived uninvited.
“Remy and her management were asked not to attend by the club in advance, due to her pending court case for attempted murder,” says an organizer. But like any good diva, the songbird strutted her curves in a tight dress on the red carpet until “she was turned away at the door by a wall of security.”
The next day, a check for Fox’s $2,500 appearance fee was rejected by her bank because it was drawn on a closed account. [SOURCE]
I was wondering why they even threw her a party this week, her birthday was basically a month ago!
FANTASIA SAYS BROADWAY IS HARD BUT REWARDING
Fantasia Barrino has become the first American Idol winner to garner huge success on Broadway. Here she is talking about her role as Miss Celie in the play, The Color Purple.
“Miss Celie takes a lot out of me. I’m being told everyday that I’m ugly. … you can’t play the part if you don’t kind of put yourself in her shoes and live her life. So it’s like, I carry that stuff with me. I put myself in her shoes in having (daughter) Zion at such a young age and dropping out of school and being in just bad relationships and disrespected. I just feel like God won’t put too much on me than I can bear. As long as I feel like I’m touching somebody … as long as I’m blessing somebody, I know that I’ll be blessed.” [SOURCE]
