Cissy says no way to Rihanna

No one knows who will get the coveted gig of portraying Whitney Houston in an upcoming movie. However, we know who doesn’t want Rihanna to have it.

That would Cissy Houston, you know, Whitney’s mother. Her documented words were. “Over my dead body.”

People usually mean it when they say that.

Here’s what’s crazy: I think Rihanna just might be the one to pull this off.

 But then, who listens to me?


Remember this guy? “Shake it Fast...Watch yourself”? Of course you do. That’s Mystikal, real name Michael Tyler.

After having a successful rap career, he was sentenced to six years for sexual battery in the height of his popularity. Only after being out about a year or so, Tyler was arrested for domestic battery, which violates his parole.

 First of all, he’s 41. That’s an age where most people start to make better decisions. Hopefully once he gets home, he will stay there and try to revive what career he has left.

I think he still has at least one hit left in him…as along as he doesn’t blow it.

Halle Berry says ‘yes’

Yep, you read correctly. Halle Berry is engaged. You can take it from her. The other half is French actor Oliver Martinez. The two met in 2010 during the filming of “Dark Tide.”

Berry was once married to baseball’s David Justice and to singer Eric Benet. (I’m convinced his hit song, “Sometimes I Cry,” was inspired by her. LOL)

Hopefully Martinez is the one for her. I mean, Halle’s relationships seem to have the lifespan of a housefly. That’s not long by the way.

Soul Train gets a cruise

This is kinda cool. Even though the “Soul Train” brand suffered a slight set back earlier this year when we lost its creator, the brand pushes ahead in a new direction…a cruise that sets sail from Ft. Lauderdale on Feb. 17, 2013.

Yeah, it’s a while away, but can you imagine how much fun this cruise is gonna be?

Performances will include some of R&B’s pioneers such as Patti LaBelle, The O’Jays, Kool and the Gang, Jeffrey Osborne, War, The Spinners, Jody Watley, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes and many more. Go to www.soultraincruise.com for more details.

Hey Angela, happy birthday!

Happy birthday to my good friend and colleague, Angela Jackson! On my birthday she shouted me out on the radio and now I’m returning the favor here.

And as for that big ole kiss you gave me on the air…here’s one back at you girl! Now go have fun and forget what you did!
