CFB Photos: The Big O Celebration

November 13, 2009
Singer Kenny Lattimore, Singer/songwriter and Real Housewife of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss, Nascar driver Kyle Petty, and singer Anthony Hamilton showed support for Otis Redding.

The Big O Foundation (Otis Redding) presented an Evening of Reflection to honor Mr. Redding, his accomplishments and influence on music. Redding was just 26 years-old when he died in a plane crash along with several members of the Bar-Kays in 1967. His acclaimed hit, (Sittin On) The Dock of the Bay was released just one month after his death and one the most recognized songs of all time. Redding had just six albums under his belt at the time of his death and was deemed to be one of the most influential musicians of all time. Attendees at this year’s event included rapper/philanthropist Ludacris, British singer Estelle, Chante Moore and husband Kenny Lattimore, Kandi Burrus, and Anthony Hamilton.

The Big O Foundation was created by Zelma Redding, widow of Otis Redding to fulfill his dream of promoting educational awareness about arts and humanities.

Entertainment: Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 1 Airs Tonight

October 29, 2009
Not your average Georgia peaches: Kandi, Nene, Lisa, Kim, and Sheree.

Just when you thought it was over, those Real Housewives of Atlanta are back for the reunion show to clear the air and reflect on this past season. Season 2 was probably the most talked about. We saw the housewives party, fight, and fuss this season with more style than ever.

The reunion show will especially interesting since Khandi will be talking publicly for the first time about the loss of her ex-fiance Ashley “A.J.” Jewell. We’ll see how Nene handles herself since she is always complaining about how everyone “talks” about her and blames her for everything. Is Kim’s “engagement” to Big Poppa, real or fake? Is Lisa pregnant? Did she lose her house? How does she fill about Sheree’s clothing line? Will Sheree’s She by Sheree brand be sold in stores? What’s next for Kandi? And of course Dwight will have to throw in his 2 cents. Wouldn’t be a show without him, right?

Tune in tonight on at 10PM EST/PST on Bravo.

Here’s a sneak peak clip.
