Mariah Carey was one of the many artists that performed at this year's Essence Festival held down in New Orleans. Other artists that performed included Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri, Maxwell, and Kandi Burruss. Speaking of Kandi, her "RHOA" co-star Cynthia Bailey says she is officially divorcing husband, Peter Thomas. She says she doesn't wish to be married anymore. We have seen the two's relationship play out on TV ever since Cynthia joined the show in season 3. Expect to see more drama on the upcoming season is which is said to be filming. LaTavia Roberson, formerly of Destiny's Child is said to be hospitalized after having some pregnancy complications. This is the second pregnancy for the star. Reports say that LaTavia was in critical condition. Hopefully good things will be in her favor during this difficult time. The big story today is about Ciara. There are stories going around that she secretly tied the knot overseas then there are other reports that suggest that she is getting married this weekend. If that's not enough Ciara has come out and said she fears that her ex, Future will kill her current fiancé. Ciara obviously heard the song "Juice" where Future laments about killing someone. Future has come out and denied the claims. Personally if that were the case, Future himself probably wouldn't do it anyway. It would be someone else. I'm just saying. I'm not wishing death on anyone because to be honest the whole story is bizarre. Future has been accused of selling stories to the blogs and so has Ciara who has flaunted her newest relationship ever since its inception. I'm pretty tired of seeing Ciara. At this point Ciara might as well get used to becoming known as a attention whore as opposed to a musician.
