Does Monica have a New Boo? I Personally don't think So, tell me what u think.

Some people I tell ya.... is claiming that Monica is apparently a homewrecker, I for one think that this story is bogus. Mainly because, the guy is just so happen the guy who Monica has featured in her "Love all Over Me" video. Here is the story according to

August 20, 2010. was offering CONGRATULATIONS earlier this week, when we CONFIRMED that R&B singer Monica was dating NBA baller Shannon Brown of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Well we have to RETRACT that congratulations (Sorry Mo). According to one of EXTREMELY reliable sources, that's because Shannon ABRUPTLY DUMPED HIS BABYS MOMS when he met Monica.

And we're not talking about any ON-AGAIN-OFF-AGAIN babys moms. Shannon and his sons mother Sharde have been TOGETHER for 7 years, living together AS A FAMILY!!!

The insider explained to, "Everything was fine, they were even talking about getting married . . . they were one big happy family, and then Monica came along."

But MediaTakeOutcom's snitch added, "I don't COMPLETELY blame Monica for everything. But as a mom who just had her babys father (Rocko) CHEAT ON HER, she should understand."

Dang Mo, your our girl and all . . . but we can't CO-SIGN on this here. Plus, Sharde is an AVID MTO READER . . . and you know, we gotta STICK UP FOR OUR PEOPLES!!!

Editor's Update: And we hear RUMORS that Shannon may have actually been ENGAGED. Check out the below video, taken last year of Shannon and Sharde. Sharde is CLEARLY wearing rings on her LEFT RING FINGER


According to,
LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Monica is dating Shannon Brown (Lakers) claims multiple reports. Shannon Brown and Monica are reportedly dating after Brown took a spot in an upcoming music video for the hit maker.

In July, one reader wrote into a celebrity blog Necole Bitchie claiming she spotted Monica with the Lakers star together in Times Square New York.”They appeared to be into each other. Shannon was laughing and Monica was smiling. Shannon is cutie! But I mean they could be here on business!” Today another website claims the two are in fact dating.

In September, BET confirmed news that Monica would return with a new reality series MONICA on October 27. “Viewers will have the chance to experience the many faces of Monica as she balances family, deals with trials, triumphs and health challenges, records her fifth album, “STILL STANDING” and tackles the hardest job of all – being a full-time mother of two young sons. Even with all of the success in her entertainment career as a Grammy(R) Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and actress, Monica’s life has not been without its challenges. Yet, through the spiritual guidance of her parents, family and fiancee she withstood the storms of life and that same support keeps her standing today.”

August 17, 2010. just learned of a SHOCKING piece of information. According to a VERY WELL KNOWN and reliable music industry insider, rapper Nicki Minaj and R&B singer Keyshia Cole got into a PHYSICAL FIGHT three weeks ago inside of a Los Angeles recording studio.

According to's snitch, the two were supposed to be recording a song together when some words were exchanged - between Keyshia and one of the guys with Nicki.

The insider explained, "Someone said something out of line to Keyshia, and she wasn't going to stand for that. Then Nicki got involved and it was MAYHEM."'s snitch continued, "Keyshia was ready to fight and there was a lot of people in each others faces and pushing, but no punches were actually exchanged."

And when we asked the insider, who THEY believed backed down from the physical fight - the insider responded, "Definitely Nicki, Keyshia was ready to [get it POPPIN]."

Which works better? P90X or the Insanity workout?

Great questions, though it's hard to put both workout programs side by side as it's not a simple apples to apples comparison but more like apples to oranges. Both programs are capable of offering a huge physical challenge but each has it's own approach and it's own target results. I'll explain.

The P90X workout program is a 90 day system which could otherwise be considered an "at home boot camp". You will need a chin up bar, a chair, a set of dumbbells and/or bands, shoes, plus about 1 hour to 1 hour and a half 6 days a week. The 7th day is an optional stretch or complete rest day.
From first hand experience I like to look at P90X as a "all-in-one" program. It is not designed to just bulk you up, it's not going to just help you lose weight, it's not just balance, and it's not just cardio.
P90X workout program just tosses a bit of everything into the equation. You lift heavy one day (or light if you want);, you're punching and kicking with Kenpo karate another day, and to top it off on other days you will be doing 1 and a half hours of Yoga for a complete mind/ body/ soul adventure.

You will go through three phases of 1 month each in P90X with each month switching it up. Most of the cardio, stretch, and balance routines stay the same. The difference in each phase is that you change out the resistance workouts so that your muscles are constantly challenged so they will always be receptive to the workout rather than plateauing.
Shaun T Insanity takes a completely different approach. The workout program is 60-days in length and is based solely on Plyometrics, Core, and Cardio training. You will not lift weights, you will not do chin ups, you don't need a chair, and the workouts range from 35-45 minutes the first phase to 1 hour and 15 minutes the second phase.
You will need very good shoes, preferably a mat to jump on, and near perfect form to avoid injury.
