When There's Nothing New To Talk About Let's Talk About Old Stuff

I was cruising threads on my use to be favorite message board when I came across this entry about former R&B singer Perri "Pebbles" Reid:
Pebbles, the use to be singer is one mixed up woman. Rumors say she use to trick in Oakland before her singing career and use to be engaged to a big time dope dealer now serving time in San Quentin. Her first husband before LA Reid was a millionaire who she was having a affair with and when his wife died, the night of the funeral, she started wearing the dead woman's clothes and jewelry. Her millionaire husband financed her career, but she dumped him for LA, then she was fooling around on LA with one of the Wayans brothers but LA wasn’t too faithful either. LA filed for divorce, then she married cracked out ugly Otis Nixon, who was running down the street naked after a bad batch of crack. Now, Pebbles or fake “Sista Perri”, whateva u want to call her is running religious scams as a advisor and minister, rippin folks off left and right with no end in sight. She even had Whitney fooled until Whit stopped takin crack.

Hell to the naaw, snitch you are crazy as hell.

Opinionated Diva said...

Wow. I usually have a nose for gossip (inherited from my mother of course), but this is the first time I've heard any of this.

Of course TLC DID say that she had been robbing them blind for years.

Anonymous said...

Perri's first husband was her manager who was 20 years her senior. They ran a management company (pebbles, bobby brown and later sinbad).

She left him for LA Reid. A pregnat Pebbles and LA moved to Atlanta with his older son (he never talks about) and her daughter.

Pebbles claims she found LA in her bedroom with Chilli from TLC.

Pebbles started seeing Mario Winans after her divorce, and help him get his first deal with Motown. She was close with his mom Vikki and the Winans. She became a born again christian.

After she became a minister her and Left Eye made up. She also has a good relationship with LA. He was the one who encourge Whitney to seek help from Perri. Whitney, Bobby and Bobbi lived with Perri for a few months. But the truth is thst Whitney needed rehab at that time.

I still don't understand why she married Otis Nixon. At the time he was trying to start a ministry. They did several christian shows together. Then he started drugs again and they divorced. She got the multi million dollar mansion in the settlement.

I want to hear the whole story. And I don't give a fuck what some white girl did last month. What makes kids think they can push a 58 year old lady? Pushing old ladies don't sound like something done by a chile who ain't bad. I'm tired of jumping on racist band wagons. Ya'll know this country is racsist. teach your black ass kids how to act.

Opinionated Diva said...

@ Other

What if you heard that the woman pushed her first? And that there is documentation that this child had been targeted repeatedly by these teachers? Actually, the school is currently under investigation for multiple complaints of unfair discriminatory treatment concerning Black children.

Pushing an old woman is not right, but she should keep her damn hands to herself too!

Wow @ the not jumping on the racist bandwagon comment. I guess it's better to jump on the I dont give a shit bandwagon instead.

other said...

OK then. say that. On that web page it said nothing about the girl getting pushed first or about the schools history of abuse,which is what it should be said instead of what some white kid did to her own parents house.

I'm still waiting for more info before I back a kid who don't respect their elders.

YAZMAR said...

I use to live an hour away from Paris, Tx...very racist town....14 year old girl was WRONG-she doesn't deserve 7 years behind bars....It's sick for anyone to think that she does!!

I will continue to follow this story....people need to do what matters, something productive instead of what doesn't matter!! Wait till it happens to you and yours!! Then What?

Anonymous said...

why is she still carrying the Reid Last name. She's no longer married to him. Is it because she needs it for recognition status?

This heffa is a Thief and a Hoe. She stole from TLC and hoe her way around hollywood. Now she wants to be a good religious role model but for who? Her son??? Bitch needs to give back some of that money she stole from TLC then she will get my respect.

Opinionated Diva said...

@ Yazmar

I guess some times it has to happen to people DIRECTLY before they really give a shit about the plight of others. It's sickening.

^^^TRUE DAT!:) I LIVE LESS THAN AN HOUR AWAY AND MY FAMILY AND I WILL BE THERE "TUESDAY", TO DO WHAT WE CAN.

YOU'RE SOOO RIGHT YAZ. EVEN IF SHE PUSHED THE WOMAN THERE IS NO WAY THAT THIS "CHILD" SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME, LESS KNOWN, SEVEN YEARS! THAT IS NOT WHAT PRISON IS FOR, IT'S FOR FRICKIN' CRIMINALS...WHAT SHE WOULD NEED IS HER ASS BEAT BY HER PARENTS. BUT JUST LIKE AS IT WAS REPORTED, THE CHILD WAS PUSHED FIRST, SHE THEN FELL ON THE TEACHER...AND PARIS, TX (LIKE ALL OF TEXAS) IS RACIST THAN A M/F! THEY TRY THEIR BEST TO MAKE IT SUCK TO BE BLACK OUT HERE, BELIEVE IT.

I PRAY WE LEARN THE NEGATIVES WE'RE PUTTING OUT HERE, BUT I ALSO PRAY WE DON'T ALLOW OTHERS TO TEAR US AWAY FROM EACH OTHER WHILE WE LEARN. DAMN WE'RE QUICK TO TURN ON ONE ANOTHER.

the reason why she still carries the last name is b/c she has children by him! Hello!!!

Ummm, forget about Perri's past, that's why it's called a testimony!! The blessing is that she has turned from that life...look at what God can do!! And for those who critize them for praying for Whitney, c'mon, we can all agree that she NEEDS prayer, living as a addict can't be easy!

There were black administrators and teachers who testified against Ms. Cotton in court, and recommended that she receive a stiff sentence because she was a habitual offender at school. I still contend that she received too severe a sentence since she did not have a criminal record, but it is not as though a group consisting entirely of whites conspired to teach blacks in Paris, Texas a lesson.

There were black leaders in the community who spoke up in support of Paris ISD, and its good treatment of students regardless of their race. The complaints against Paris ISD were found to be without merit during the investigations. What became evident is that there is a significant parenting problem, not a school district that singles out black students for more severe punishment.

On that web page it said nothing about the girl getting pushed first or about the schools history of abuse,which is what it should have said instead of what some white kid did to her own parent's house.

7 years is excessive, but I bet her and no other kids won't be at school pushing no adults.
Ya'll be surprised what's goning on in these schools. These damn kids on the wild.

We can solve whose side I'mma be on if somebody just get me the girl's GPA. If she do good in school, I'm behind her 100%. If she a fuck up grades wise, fuck her and her mama.

Opinionated Diva said...

@ Other
I went to the site Yaz threw up there and then I said, "well let me do some more research" and I plugged in the name and found articles from the town's website as well as the Chicago tribune as well as COUNTLESS web logs...this took five minutes.

My apologies if you think I'm not being fair. The last thing I want to do is divide people on this issue by making it about ME. Do your research and see for yourself.

To Anon 2:47...in the articles I read the complaints were still under investigation. Where did you see otherwise?

Also, there were WHITE teachers who also pointed that this school does not treat Black and White students equally.

Anonymous said...

I read that the school targeted her, because her mother was constantly at the school starting shit over any and every little thing. Sounds like the mother was a real trouble maker, which still don't mean that she should have got 7 years. That is excessive.

Opinionated Diva said...

Her mother is for equal rights. She complained about the unfair treatment. The school accused her daughter of things (damaging a desk) which were later found out to be false accusations. She and other parents marched in front of the school...Does this really make her a "trouble maker"?

SOULWRITER said...

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice EVERYWHERE. 7 years for what would be classified as a misdemmeanor at the most is harsh and meant to start this girl on a never-ending merry-go-round through the justice system to get more $$$ for that backwards-@$$ place. I'm an Ohio native, but I live in a Dallas suburb and whole-heartedly believe that this $#!* is going down. I have 2 kids and to know that this level of ignrance is still alive and well is terrifying. WE NEED TO APPLY PRESSURE AND DEMAND EQUAL JUSTICE, AND THAT INCLUDES THIS PAWN OF A CHILD!!!

Anonymous said...

So, does that mean that Perri was cokin it up w/ Whitney, bcus birds of a feather flock together & that wouldmean that her ex-husband(same last name) coked it up too?

YAZMAR said...

Listen up I gave the website to go to and have read other articles as well. I don't care how you look at it, and I can care less if you choose no to agree-This child is serving to harsh of a sentence..hands down. Get the child anger management but not locked away like a career criminal!

I know for a fact that Paris, Tx and OTHER small Texas towns are known for this type of behavior against blacks....How anyone on this board gonna argue that, when I'm from a small town an hour away from paris,tx. I have seen the shit go down before, but this time its too excessive! I believe the child should get punished but to this magnitude is highly racist!!

Opinionated Diva appreciate you for taking the time out to research! That shows your intelligence level!!

His name is George Smith and she was not underage. She was 22. He was a manager at a bank in california.

She was not trickin. Her first husband was not a drug dealer. She was married to the lead singer of Confuction at age 18.

Otis seemed okay, but he was still struggling with drugs. How are you going to diss him for that. The marriage fell apart later when the drug use came back.

Oh! It was worse than that. Pebbles and George Smith met in 1985 and immediately started a scandalous affair with each other while George was still married to his wife Darlene who was terminally ill with cancer. Pebbles and George had a very high-profiled affair which publicly humiliated his family. George Smith was paying all of Pebbles’ bills and staying at the apartment he set up for her.

George Smith’s secretary told his wife about the affair with Pebbles and he still continued to sleep with her. George would leave his office early and stay at Pebbles apartment until wee hours in the morning. It appeared that he felt nothing for his ailing wife. Pebbles moved in with George the night his wife died. Pebbles and George were married the next month which devastated his young daughter. George gave Pebbles the $150,000 ring, furs, money and all of the dead wife’s valuables including her brand new Bentley. George Smith put Pebbles on his payroll at Smith Engineering & Contract Services and she never put in a day’s work or even showed up at the office. He totally neglected his young daughter. George Smith was twenty two years older than Pebbles and a dog! Pebbles met L.A. Reid and had an affair with him while still married to George. She eventually left George Smith for Antonio L.A. Reid

I don't feel sorry for George Smith after what he did to his dying wife and poor little daughter! What a bastard!

I agree, what a loser. Pebbles and George Smith was the couple from hell. Chucky and his bride? lol. I heard he had a lot of financial problems and he has a beautiful wife that stood behind him. How could a man like him find a beautiful and smart woman to even be interested in him. He is old, ugly and a faded player.

Anonymous said...

I heard the same thing. That George Smith married some exotic, beautiful woman in 1992. I heard she is very smart too. She is an executive in the music industry from Warner Brothers. What would she want with that tired old man. I wonder if she is still with him. I heard Pebbles said George was not good in bed and that she was bored with him and just married him for his money. George Smith sounds like a real stupid fool and pussy hound to fool with a piece of trash like Pebbles. I heard he had guys at his house sleeping with Pebbles while he watched because he could not perform sexually.

I am not going to comment on what you THINK you know, but honestly I know that it might be fun to call people whores and dissect their lives because you are all so perfect. The funny thing is that with a holier-than-thou attitude that you are all spewing who are talking trash, you are only exposing your ignorance and trashyness. You have no idea how much your words can hurt people. Take a look at your own lives, and write a blog about that.

You think that because you THINK you know something about her past, that you know everything about every decision that she has made in her life. I'm so sorry that your life is not interesting enough for you to write about it. I think it's sad how much you are trying to make truth of your opinion when you have no real knowledge in the first place. Go to school and get an education. Let's talk about Beaudrillard and Foucalt. Just because someone had a dream to sing, does not mean that they should also HAVE to be subjected to this nonsense. Get a life.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaquanda_Cotton

This is for the person wayyy up the line that said she wanted to hear the whole story about Shaquanda Cotton. This tells everything, including both sides. But even after reading both sides, it was clearly yet another new age form of racism and a very injust sentence. Even her doing the year she did was too much. But at least she's out now. And at least it shows America that racism is still alive and well in this country. Because there are a lot of ignorant people out there that like to sweep it under the rug along with the rest of the dirt.

As far as "pebbles" goes....I don't see anything wrong about this video. She's praising the Lord and praying for Whitney, big deal. I don't care if she was hoe'in yesterday, if today she wakes up and wants to praise the Lord- then that's what she's doing. We are all sinners, we all have an ugly past, for those of you without sin- cast the first stone....and all y'all responding to this video in a negative manner are sure casting a lot of stones...and surely probably have done a lot of shady things. SO hold on to your rocks and be thankful we have another strong Black woman doing something positive. I don't hear her one time asking for money on this video. That's what makes people crumble- when you try and change your life- and people can't stop bringing up your past. We should be trying to lift her up and keep her on a straightened arrow...not waiting for her downfall. That's what's wrong with us now. Damn.

and you know what, you guys have alot of nerve. Whatever Otis is doing has nothing to do with our family WHAT-SO-EVER. Mom has only brought people to the Lord, and has always invested her OWN money into her ministry. If you knew more of what you were talking about, you might just keep your mouth shut. My brother is not in hiding. hahaha That was a dumb try. I am paving my own life as a fine art gallery artist in NYC. I am not into the lime light. That is why you don't see me. Again, no scandal there. Just my solo opening in Chelsea tonight. And my mother wants to have the same last name as her kids, which I would think alot of women could empathize with that. Find something else to talk about that has some substance.

Ashley....
If this is indeed truly you, I can't imagine why you would feel moved to defend you mother on a public website, when probably no one outside of Pebbles herself knows the entire story. Not that it even matters at this point as so much time has passed and she's retired from her music career. But as it relates to TLC, they were in a bad deal. They were signed to LaFace, a company her husband owned and ran, through Pebbles' production company and also managed by her, an inherent conflict of interest. That TLC was uninformed about that possible conflict at the time they signed is true, but fortunately for them, they got smarter. I heard this entire story from their own mouths. There was definitely a sense of betrayal there. While it may be standard industry practice, and its certainly possible that TLC overspent, it is also well-known that that kind of contract places a manager in a financially advantageous role. That's just the truth, Ashley.
Congrats on your show.

Ashley said...

This is Ashley Reid again, and Industry Vet, you made a GREAT POINT! "I can't imagine why you would feel moved to defend your mother on a public website, when probably (and this is the kicker) NO ONE OUTSIDE OF PEBBLES HERSELF KNOWS THE ENTIRE STORY. I thought that that was very intelligent of you, really did. UNTIL, you then proceeded to tell the story yourself through the mouths of the girls. I have to say, regardless of what you know, i grew up with them and clearly my mother, so no one knows the whole story except for the 4 of them. BUT, i definitely know more than you do hun. Sorry. They got smarter. I think that's great. What was the outcome of that? One more great album, divorce, sickle cell, and death. I truly think that we all just need to shut up at this point, and remember that sometimes things can get befuddled in a way to where perspectives just don't add up. I would HOPE that we are all intelligent enough to know that it takes two to tango, no one is fully a victim, and no one is fully a villan. And whoever doesn't agree with that knows nothing about personal responsibility and accountability. Thank you for the congrats! The show opened very well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaquanda_Cotton <<< VERY comprehensive; read it & decide for yourself! I came to 3 quite pertinent conclusions: 1~ The "Racism" accusation is thrown out MUCH too quickly & easily, & dogging on black people who speak out against other blacks who are doing wrong, is UNFAIR & RIDICULOUS & IMMATURE; 2~ QUITE clearly, the girl shoved FIRST {hence, ASSAULTED someone who then defended themselves}; 3~ 7 years is WAAAAY too long for such an offense!! Heck, child molesters rarely get more than 2 years!! The ENTIRE COUNTRY should have EQUAL & FAIR sentencing laws & rules!!!!!!! Btw, the girl is now OUT of jail... :)

Anonymous said...

Ashley,
First of all your legal last name is not Reid. You are Antonio's step daughter. You have his last name if he legally adoopted you. Your mother slept around a lot and broke up married relationships. What Perri Pebbles Reid or Sister Perri did with George Smith was horrific. Perri/Pebbles played George for his money and broke up his marriage knowing that his wife Darlene had terminal cancer. She married George and slept with LA Reid in George's bedroom while George took his daughter Jennifer to school. Your mother was a crook, whore and all about herself. Why is she selling "Girlfriend I am Saved" on her Christian website. Why does she have a website and Myspace showing all of her MCA pictures. How come she never mentions she was married to George Smith who bankrolled her career? C'mon Ashley, you know nothing. You were only 5 years old when your mom was fooling around with George Smith. Come to Oakland, CA if you want to know who your mother really is. Pebbles stays in Atlanta because she is dishonet and hiding from the truth. How can you be saved when you are still telling lies about your past? God bless you Ashley. I feel sorry for you and your brother Aaron. I pray one day that Sister Perri will tell the real truth...then, I will know she is truly saved! Praise the Lord...the truth will set you free.

Ashley,

Or whomever this person that is assuming the name of Ashly has problems. Why would the real daughter of Pebbles state her feelings on an impersonal website. If you are a Christian than you do not allow words or people's opinions to offend you. The truth is what it is and you cannot change it. People change for better or worse. Ashley, or whomever you are need to be more Christlike and turn the cheek when it comes to what people say. You sound very bitter and angry. Get the Lord into your life and stop going to public sites like this. It appears that you are looking for trouble and you will never stop what people feel about Pebbles. Most people just do not like her because they feel she is dishonest and a fake. They have a right to their opinion and if you do not want to read it than stay away from sites like this.

Ashley SMITH
LA aint your Dad. He dont claim u. He claims Ant Jr, Aaron, Chase, Ariana, & Addison.

2) U think u know the truth. U know the events/happening from Perri's POV. TLC" POV also has importance.

3) How dare u brush off TLC as 'bankruptcy, sickle cell, death". They went bankrupt bc they paid YOUR MOM! Sickle cell is gentics, Rox had no power over it; and Lisa's death is sad.

4) U need 2 open you eyes. How your Dad Geoge & mom Perri disrespected Darlene Smith while she was dying of cancer is terrible.

5)U think you mom has no fault, I bet Jennifer Smith (do u even have a relationship with your BLOOD SISTER, u so hung up on LA Reis' fame) feels diferently.

lilkunta said...

Also, if Perri want the same name as her kids, y isnt she Perri Smith? That is her last name from your Dad.

Does she love Aaron more?

Ashley said...

Illkunta, or whatever your name is, you are so wrong it's hysterical. And Anonymous, you are right. I shouldn't be giving this any of my time. I am a Christian, so don't tell me I am not because you disagree with something that you are doing yourself? You don't have the right to tell me who I am or who I am not. Sorry, but this is true. You do have a right to an opinion and we all know how opinions can be! hahaha It's hard to hear my mother being called a whore and people saying that my father is not really my father. Maybe if you were in my position you would understand wanting to defend your family. I am sure you have been in that position before in your life. I don't have problems, but thank you for being very hypocritical in that statement. I did agree with you on turning a blind eye though and i will take that seriously. Ilkunta, you have some serious issues. I don't know what is wrong with you but i hope you get help. I love that you think you know everything. your hatred is outstanding. My last name is not Smith. It is Reid. I do not cling to my father's name. How many paparazzi pictures have you seen me in? Don't you think that someone can make the conscious decision to not do things like that? I love my life, my family, and I love that you have not only made me laugh but have made me realize even more how proud I am to be exactly who I am on my own merit. If i embodied as much hatred as you I would most likely not like myself very much. The TLC comment, i loved those girls. They were like sisters to me. Again, you think you know everything, but clearly you don't. You know what you want to believe because you are bitter. You brought that bitterness out of me which I blame myself for. I allowed myself to slide down to your level momentarily. That is all over now. It was nasty down there. Anyway, you guys have your comments and your opinions. In the end a life's story is complicated and full of twists and turns. Your lives are no different. You guys keep talking about the "truth". Have you had a magnifying glass over our lives daily? I don't think so. I don't know everything either, but it is not my place to know. Look at your lives for a second. Are you saying that you have been perfect? If so, should I not pray to Jesus any more? Are you the second coming!!! I don't think so. You guys throw alot of stones around. It's pretty impressive. This is my last message. I hope you guys will not be so defensive and just look at your own lives for a second and say "how do I have the right to call out anyone on something i am not even fully wise about, when i have my own skeletons and issues". I don't know, maybe you are mature enough to do that. IlCunta (i don't care how your name is spelled so forgive me, haha)I am sure you will have something completely ignorant to say so have fun. I hope that you can afford some sort of medication. I feel for you girl. Take care of that! Bye all! This has been an interesting learning experience of what a hater's mentality is truly like. I hope you learn from this too, although i doubt it from some.

lilkunta said...

What does your birth certificate say? It says Ashley SMITH!

Do u even have a relationship w your sister Jennifer?

If u feel closer 2 LA bc u moved 2 Atl w him, fine. But u dont remember the 1st 7 yrs of your life w your Dad George?

I'm not hating, Im giving my opinion.

Of course u side w your Mom bc she is your mom. But 4 u 2 say that TLC blew their $ & then call them sisters in the same breath is just stupid.

Is your mom such a ferverant Xtian now bc she knows she is wrong 4 sleeping w George while Darlene was dying? For then cheating on George w LA?

HI EVERYONE. I GUESS ASHLEY THINK THAT THER MOM IS A SAINT. SHE DID ALOT OF DIRT IN HER PAST AS EVERYONE DOES. IF SHE IS HONESTLY GETTING HER LIFE TOGETHER THAT IS GREAT. BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT SHE IS AND BELIEVE HER TO BE A FAKE. SHE SUPPOSED TO BE CALLED OUT BY GOD. SHE ONLY IS PREACHING BECAUSE SHE NEEDS MONEY AND GOT CAUGHT FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE TO OTHERS. SHE CLAIMED THAT GOD SPOKE TO HER AND TOLD HER TO START A CHURCH SHE LIED. GOD SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO HER AND TOLD HER TO NOT LAY WITH ANOTHER WOMANS HUSBAND. HE SHOULD HAVE SPOKEN TO HER AND TOLD HER NOT TO MARRY OTIS NIXON. AT THE WEDDING THEY DID NOT HAVE NAY ALCOHOL THER TO BE SO RELIGIOUS BUT, WHAT GOOD IS THAT IF YOU ARE SMOKING CRACK AND RUNNING DOWN THE STREET BUTNACKED. GOD SHOULD HAVE NOT JOINED THEM TOGETHER. SHE WAS USING COKE WITH WHIT. THERE IS NO WAYT AHT SHE IS HER BEST FRIEND AND NOT DO WHAT SHE DOES. AS A MATTER OF FACT I REMEMBER WHEN WHIT WAS TALKING WITH DIANE SAWYER AND SHE SAID THAT SHE AND HER GIRLS WOULD GET TOGETHER AND PARTY. WHITNEY DIVORCING BOBBY IS NOT HALF HER DRUG PROBLEM. SHE HAS BEEN PARTYING WITH PEBBLES AND CHERELLE.

Sister Perri Pebbles Reid is the biggest phoney. She sells Tshirts and hats that say "Girlfriend I am Saved" and has all of these pictures of herself when she was performing as Pebbles. She is a fake and found another way of making money. Real ministers do not have pictures of themselves when they were sex symbols on their websites. Sister Perri Pebbles Reid appears to be in love with herself. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is only skin deep...Ugliness and deceit is to the bone

I feel sorry for TLC. Sister Perri Pebbles Reid really took advantage of those young girls and stole their money and took their publishing. Pebbles is a hard-core crook. As far as her relationship with that loser, George L. Smith, they both should be ashamed of themselves plotting on his poor wife Darlene and waiting for her to die so Pebbles could finally move in. How sad that George Smith moved Pebbles into his household the week that his dying wife went into the hospital before her death. Darlene had accused George of cheating with Pebbles and he told the poor dying woman that it was all in her mind. Everyone in Oakland knows the truth about George Smith and Sister Perri Pebbles Reid. May God forgive them both for all of the people they hurt and for poor Darlene who had terminal cancer and was humiliated by their public and digusting sex affair. Pebbles is a bum and so is George

I do not know how people are following behind her and thinking that they will get saved by attending her ministry. First of all there is no such thing as a woman minister. God has never authorized a woman to head a church. When you read the Bible it tells us that Christ is the head of the Church and the Church is his bride. You are right she is a scam and should be ashamed of herself. But she is making alot of dirty money and is loving it. Her daughter Ashley have a problem with her brain, she do not want to see her mother for what she really is. I remember reading where she wrote that LA Reid was a much her father as anyones else. But he is not the one that planted her seed. George Smith did that and she ran off with her with LA Reid. Pebbles was on the PTL show talking about her life in the music industry and talked about TLC she called Chilli a sex kiten. But she was a sex kitten herself so she can not talk about no one. She is lying to others telling them that God spoke to her and told her to start a ministry. If God had been speaking to her he would have told her to not marry Otis Nixon. There is no way that she is save and marry into the world. And besides what Church did she get saved in and under who? A sinner cannot save themselves.

George Smith is now married to a beautiful and gorgeous woman who is a big time executive and Community Activist in Los Angeles. I saw some pictures of her with Congresswoman Maxine Waters and her name is Renee. She looks like she is mixed with Indian or Spanish and has beautiful long braids.

The newspaper article said Renee is the President of her own company and she has a "Stay in School Empower the youth the American Dream Foundation. This woman is gorgeous, smart and too classy for him. What in the world does she see in him. I hope she sees the bum for what he is and dumps him.

It is 2011 and I have recently heard that she has lost both of her kidneys and is on dialysis. I guess all of that damn cocaine destroyed her to.

Pebbles is now back into the world she is not putting up this church girl act anymore. Church people do not believe in being rich and living high on the hog. I new this act would not last too long. I also saw a picture of her and chilli all huged up at some gala in atl. Pebbles is supposed to be teaming with essence to find the next R&B star.

The Bible say be sure that your sins will fin you out. The only difference between her and Whitney, is that Whitney is a lot more successful than she will ever be and Whitney sewed her wild Oaks at a later time in her life. All of them did drugs and carried on. The reason that Ashley was so hurt is because she though that she had room to talk about Whitney. Her mom did the same thing and worse because Whitney never slept with another person husband.

jacquelyn said...

I knew all the while that she was putting on a Church act because she could not make any money in the Entertainment industry because of what was going on between her and L.A. and TLC. That is a damn shame, she told that lie talking about she had change and was a Christian playing with peoples souls for money.

jacquelyn said...

I think that she is evil and is jealous of Whitney and CECE Winans friendship. She was all up in CECE face talking about Whitney being on drugs but, she is on drugs herself. Also Cherelle is on drugs. She was on UNSUNG and she did not even bother to talk about her drug problem nor did she mention her mother.

jacquelyn said...

I am hoping that Whitney stay the hell away from these two losers because they do not mean her any good. Sometimes people will pretend to be your friends only to drag you down and that is what they TRIED to do to whitney.

Anybody heard from Cherelle since Whitney is gone? I suppose she is scouting for the next rich celebrity on drugs to piggyback on for the next 20 years. Was she at the funeral? Seems as if a best friend would have a seat up close. Seems as if the rumors of being broke came about recently. It's pretty bad when you build your life on somebody else's fortune. Poor Whitney supported a bunch of people's drug habit including that low down dirty sister of Bobby. Cherelle spoke in Whitney's behalf about her being clean, but was hitting the stem at the same time.

Pebbles is like a real deal trick. Forreal if you go ask any old timmer in oakland they'll tell you everything you need to know about pebbles. She got three kids. The oldest two (Ashley and Aaron) are stuck up as hell. They dont care about nobodys feelings but their own and Pebbles raised them like that.The youngest one still stay in Oakland, i heard he's a more chilled and relaxed guy.(Guessing because he wasnt raised by her thank the lawd!!) Shit i wouldnt blame the poor boy. I wouldnt want to be in the spotlight either if my mom was a hoe thats stealing people money. Hmmph.

Some magazine stated Pebbles dated Michael Cooper from Con Funkshun when she was 16 years old and he was 30. Ashley is rumored not to be George's child, but child of lead singer in Con Funk Shun. Pebbles also rumored to be involved in love triangle with Michael Cooper and Felton Pilate. Seeing both men at same time. Reason for song Loves Train. The song is deep. Cooper sings the hell out of it on You Tube when they performed on Soul Train. Cooper said he was devastated to learn she was cheating on him with his band member during Unsung episode.You can't believe everything you read. Only Pebbles knows who the father of her children are. Pebbles should write a book. I'm sure a lot of people would buy it. No one wants their Mom being called bad names. A good daughter is supposed to defend her mother. Anyone would do the same thing. Pebbles(48 yrs old) married again in August 2012 to Lawyer Excel Sharrieff (37 yrs old).I wish them the best.

Love triangle with Cooper and Pilate is only rumor.... not true at all...

Old Pro said...

The song wasn't Love's Train it was "I'm Leaving Baby" And the woman in question wasn't Pebbles (so Coop says) Coop only says he went over to Pebs house after the incident went down. He talked about this on Video Soul with Donnie back in the day

@furpurr This is a really old comment, but actually, no, accusations of racism aren't "thrown out too quickly". People are saying the Shaquanda Cotton incident was racist because it was. She got a much longer sentence than she should have because of her race. People aren't "dogging on black people who speak out against other blacks who are doing wrong". They're pointing out that trying to downplay the significance of racial inequality in the justice system is both racist and ignorant.

And no, actually, is isn't "quite clear" that the girl shoved first. There have been conflicting reports about it. Some witnesses say she did, some say she didn't.

How you can say you want fair and equal laws right after blatantly ignoring an incident of the law not being fair and equal, is beyond me. I guess that's self-hatred for you.

The comment regarding Pebbles having kidney failure is incorrect. It was "Vanity" who had the kidney failure, she is also a minister.
