Are we ready for another EXPLOSIVE episode of 'Real housewives of Atlanta'!?? Well, Apollo BUM RUSHES Phaedra at the club and reminds her that he is STILL her Husband, and MOMMA JOYCE's shocking CONFESSION!!
This is an AWKWARD exchange, right??

I have to ADMIT.
I am a Janet Jackson FAN. It does not matter WHAT she SINGS---I LIKE IT! So since we are CELEBRATING JANET JACKSON'S 48th BIRTHDAY ALL WEEKEND LONG, let's GO WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY BACK. Back to her 'Dream Street' days with a classic. And just in case you thought 'Scream' was the only time Michael & Janet recorded together, the King Of Pop did provide background vocals for his baby sisters single.
I bet Joe told her to wear this WARM-UP SUIT! LOL
"Don't Stand Another Chance" was the lead single from Janet Jackson's second album, Dream Street. It was Jackson's second single to enter of the top 10 of the R&B chart, reaching number 9 in 1984.
For the first time, Jackson included the song on her 2008 "Rock Witchu Tour". Jackson also included the song in her performance at the 2010 Essence Music Festival, held in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The song was written by Janet Jackson, with brother Marlon Jackson and musician John Barnes. Marlon Jackson also produced the single and provided backing vocals along with brothers Michael, Tito, and Jackie.
WE HEART Janet at THE GAMUTT!

For the past 14 years '106 & Park' has been the staple for POP CULTURE on BET. Monday through Friday they've managed to bring us the 'LIVEST STUDIO AUDIENCE' on the planet with all the HOTTEST guests from Lil, Kim, Jack Black to President Barack Obama. It was an INSTITUTION that we thought would always be around. Even in times of CRISES and '106' was like a BEACON and a sounding BOARD for the HIP HOP CULTURE and beyond! But Friday marked the last TV episode of '106 & Park'! BET has plans to continue the LEGACY via social media and a digital version launching in 2015, but nothing is like SITTING DOWN on that stage in front of THAT AUDIENCE to chat with the CHARISMATIC HOSTS at the time. The configuration has changed a lot over the years, but what has always been CONSTANT, is the LOVE and the ENERGY that only '106' could PROVIDE!
Past host came by to take the venerable show out in STYLE! AJ & Free who JUMP-STARTED this whole MOVEMENT came back. Terrence & Rocsi stopped in to CHAT with the LAST on-tv guest, Nicki Minaj. And a HOST of celebrity friends sent their WELL WISHES... and did we forget to mention Keyshia Cole and Wale as well. We FINALLY get the bottom of the Terrence J and Rocsi on-camera FEUD! Check out some of the moments from #106FinalAct!
As we continue with the '12 Jams of Christmas', no HOLIDAY would be COMPLETE without the sounds of The Temptations with 'Silent Night'!!
