Don Bleek’s Recap From ‘The Gossip Game’ Press Reception In NYC

tgg 066

Last night Wednesday (March 27), I attended VH1’s The Gossip Game ‘Press Reception’ at XL Nightclub. VH1, Monami Entertainment and Myx Fusions hosted the event which was spearheaded by 135th Street Agency. Industry bloggers, tastemakers, socialites, music executives, rappers & radio DJ’s packed the nightclub in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen to watch a private premiere screening of the show, followed by a Q&A segment which was narrated by entertainment and media mogul Mona Scott-Young. All of the cast members were there. Reality stars Yandy Smith and Jennifer Williams, music executive Mike Kyser, rapper Bun B, Power 105‘s Charlamagne, and Hot 97’s Ebro Darden were also in attendance. Guests in attendance sipped Myx Fusions moscato and Malibu Red as well as took pics and did interviews. Speaking of interviews, I have a few interviews and excerpts that I will be posting soon. I was one of the bloggers who was chosen to asked a question. My question was directed to K. Foxx and Angela Yee. I asked the ladies, “would you ever put your issues aside and work together because you guys are two African-American women on two of the top rated urban stations in NYC and a lot of young girls do look up to you as role models.” Lord Jesus, I didn’t know that I wound start a heated argument by asking that question (I will be posting their responses soon).

I am not able to give away the show or talk about what happened on the premiere episode, but make sure you tune in to The Gossip Game starring Kim Osorio (Editor-In-Chief at The Source magazine), Angela Yee (Power 105’s morning show co-host), K. Foxx (Hot 97’s morning show co-host), Sharon Carpenter (Journalist/Global Grind), Jas Fly (freelancer/blogger), Ms. Drama (blogger), and Vivian Billings (blogger) this Monday (April 1) at 9pm on VH1.

style-wars-article

D-Wade & LeBron James, 

NBA players D-Wade, LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire, Kevin Durant, Chris Bosh, Russell Westbrook and others are featured in GQ magazine’sInside the NBA’s New Style Wars‘. These men got all dapper for their photo shoot. Below is an excerpt for the publication:

The rivalry among the NBA’s elite has spilled o≠ the court and into an arena where athletes have historically feared to tread: high fashion. Players show up for games wearing leather pants, lensless glasses, and printed silk shirts—and that’s just Russell Westbrook. GQ’s Steve Marsh spent a week trailing basketball’s biggest names—Kevin Durant, Kobe, D-Wade, LeBron—to find out how they’re turning the league into a runway for the world’s tallest peacocks.”

Malaysia Pargo leaving Barneys of New York

Married reality star Malaysia Pargo of Basketball Wives: Los Angeles was photo’d shopping at Barneys department store in Beverly Hills this past Tuesday (March 26). For her shopping trip, Pargo looked cute in a black Celine tee-shirt paired with black leather biker pants. She accessorized her outfit with a red Celine bag and Christian Louboutin Studded Peep Toes. I really like her outfit! It’s well put together and the all black brings out her shape and shows her nice and smooth looking skin. Are you looking forward to seeing Pargo back on BBWLA?

Rumor Alert! Did Kanye West Design These Pair Of Giuseppe Zanotti Sneakers

kanyewestgiuseppe

A couple of months ago, I heard a rumor that Kanye West was designing a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. I did not post anything about it because I fact-check my information before posting it. According to Kanye West’s long time personal barber and trusted style consultant Ibn Jasper, this rumor may be true. He posted  a picture on Instagram of rapper 50 Cent wearing the sneakers in his “We Up” visual with the caption, “50 rockin the YEEZi x Giuseppe’s“. 

If Kanye did collaborated with Giuseppe Zanotti on a pair of luxury sneakers, I’m sure a lot of people will buy them just because Kanye’s name is attached to it.  These sneakers are already for sale on a few European retail sites, including Shoe Baloo.

What are your thoughts on these sneakers and would you buy them?
