We were first introduced to my favorite bad girl Judith Camille “Judi” Jackson (also known as The Voodoo Vixen) when she made her appearance on Oxygen’s “The Bad Girls Club New Orleans Season 7”. She then made an appearance on Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too, where she was victorious, and then Bad Girls All-Star Battle. Since then, Judi has kept busy turning her 15 minutes of fame into a brand; appearing in a few films,  publishing her first fiction book, launching her vixen brand, and moving into her own home in Atlanta, Ga. Although, The Bad Girls Club is still airing, the show that was introduced to the world as therapy for young women who wanted to change their bad girl ways, has experienced a ratings decline over the last couple of years. I caught up with the budding entrepreneur and she shared her opinion on the once popular show’s rapid decline, her new ventures and more.

Tyra Banks has been blessed enough to carry each one, but the title she has looked forward to being called for years is mommy. During an episode of her show FabLife, Ty-Ty shared her frustration with conceiving children and her journey to motherhood.

K. Michelle - Erica Mena Surgery

Either the “big booty, big boobies, big everything” trend is ending or confidence is rising. I hope it’s the latter. Reality stars K. Michelle and Erica Mena are just a few of the women who previously admitted to cosmetic surgery but are now downgrading or removing their enhancements all together. Both ladies are venturing out beyond reality TV and building their brands in their respective areas of interest. Apparently, their enhancements have been more of a distraction than asset recently.

Last week reality TV stars Benzino, Claudia Jordan, Laura Govan, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Jennifer Williams as well as other celebrities attended the “Hip Hop Weekly Magazine Goes Hollywood” celebration. There were plenty of cameras flashing and flicking. Not only because of the celebration of the mag’s move to the west coast, but also because the event included a live taping of TV One‘s new reality series “The Next 15”, a docu-series following the lives of six reality stars looking to extend their 15 minutes of fame.

For the first time since they’ve started this era of biopics, Lifetime is producing the biopic of someone who is still alive. The network is producing the story of singer Toni Braxton. Unlike Lifetime’s previous biopics for songstresses Aaliyah and Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton is an executive producer for the film so we can bet on it being told accurately from Toni’s point of view. “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart” will chart the singer’s rise to fame, including her financial, health and marital struggles.
