The Celebreality Interview – The Entertainer

by

“Frank get a job! Frank get a job!” The Entertainer’s father’s words undoubtedly play over and over as much in his head as they do as flashbacks on TV. Below, VH1′s favorite 30-year-old-who-lives-with-his-parents talks about life on and off the show: where he is with Destiney, how it felt to lose his chance at emancipation and what it’s like to be back at his parents’ house, a place he affectionately dubbed “hell.”

Pep Under Attack: New Book Excerpt

by

As part of Salt-N-Pepa, Sandy Denton struck a blow for women rappers everywhere. The famed trio’s string of hits, including “Push It” and “Let’s Talk About Sex,” opened lots of doors and lots of minds. Since her pioneering heyday of the ’80s, Pep’s gone on to participate in VH1′s Surreal Life, be celebrated on Hip Hop Honors, and show us the subtlties of the reunion with her old partner on the Salt-N-Pepa Show. Of course, she lived her life, too – it’s had its ups and downs.

The new Let’s Talk About Pep, a tell-all autobiography, is filled with the particulars of those ups and downs. Her rough childhood, teen stardom, falling out with Salt, battles with domestic abuse , premonitions of death, promise of celibacy, and lots more. You can purchase the book right here.

We grabbed one of the book’s more dramatic chapters to illustrate how candid the whole thing is. Here’s a section of “The Nightmare.”

“In my dream, I was standing at the top of this huge staircase. This staircase was like something out of Dynasty—with its white, wooden railings that seemed to go on forever. It was the kind of staircase you find in a mansion, splitting two wings. The staircase was so huge that in this dream I couldn’t stand in the middle and grab the railings—they seemed like a mile apart. In my dream, I’m at the top of the stairs and I’m in a fight. I’m on the wrong end of this fight, with my back to this huge staircase. I’m being beaten and I’m not really fighting back because I’m over this staircase—this long, hard, wooden staircase—and if I fall, that’s it. So I’m holding on to this person, trying to hold on to my life. But in my dream, I lose this struggle and end up at the bottom of this staircase broken. I don’t know whether I’m dead or paralyzed, but I’m not moving.

I was barely speaking to Brad. I was recuperating from that last incident with the IUD. I spoke to him long enough to tell him about the no sex for two months. But why was I even entertaining being with him again after that? I was not in my right mind. I was not in a good place…

by

“It looks like I’m mentally disabled!” Brandi C., yelled at us, taking us to task for posting less-than-flattering shots of her on this site. Whatever, Brandi C., you get what you give and sometimes the result is complete mentally disabled brilliance. After the jump, Bret Michaels’ favorite titmouse talks about being double-crossed by Toasteee and Pumkin, their resulting food fight, Real’s proposal to Hoopz and the nature of her relationship with Megan, who was right beside her as she answered our questions…in bed!
