With each year that passes, we all grow wiser. Some of us get the point, while others are still trying to get a clue. Here we are at the end of 2009 & what I can say, its definitely been one hell of a year to remember. As a family, here on Baller Alert, we've grown tremendously. I'm most proud of our growth & to think, we gain new members daily.
This year has definitely had its shares of ups & downs. If I could capture… Continue
All of America has been waiting for these two to battle it out. The revenue in which a fight of this magnitude would bring in is outrageous. Definitely one fight I'd definitely would pay to see in person. Of course I'd have my money on Manny, let's face it, this dude is nice.
However, before they even get to the ring, these two are battling it out. A ring of a much grandiose scale; the court house. That's right, Manny Pacquiao… Continue
Many of yall know that I’m a fan of higher education. I know that college is not for everyone but, according to usgovinfo.com, a college master's degree is worth $1.3 million more in lifetime earnings than a high school diploma, according to a recent report from the Commerce Department's Census Bureau. The report titled "The Big Payoff: Educational Attainment and Synthetic Estimates of Work-Life Earnings" reveals that… Continue
I got an early e-mail from someone who follows the editor of Black Men's Magazine Marcus Blassingame. Apparently Hoopz and Chad Ocho Cinco was on a photo shoot and it was some unexpected chemistry. Marcus posted on his twitter page pictures and captions saying they made out and how they made out on the photo shoot.
KARMA. Or better yet put that damn bottle of Henny down. Just pass it to Mrs Artest, she'll down it for sure - even if she's been arrested 5 times for DWI. Who cares? There's money to bail her out. After the Laker game on Christmas, Artest supposedly tripped on toys at home and split his head open. He was rushed to the hospital and received staples to close up the wound. He also had a minor concussion and was trying to remember who/what/where he… Continue
There's reason why musically I fell in love with the Southern Hummingbird Tweet. Love Again just solidified that very thought. You would often wonder what she's been up to since her 2005 release of Its Me Again. It seems she's inked a new deal with Umbrella Records & will be releasing her 3rd studio album, Love, Tweet sometime in 2010. I'm rather sure Missy Elliott will be making some guest appearances off this… Continue

I received this e-mail from a former employee
They stood by him at the Woodmore Country Club as he unveiled the plans for his new 7,500 square foot restaurant. They listened as he talked about realizing his dream. It couldn't be done without them, he said. He talked about his years on the field and how he had come to learn the team was the most important thing one could have. They were his team now. They were in it together, not as… Continue
Long live the KING. Even in death, his presence is still felt. He is & always will be the standard. This Is It is the lead single off the latest compilation album which was released back in October. What he did in numbers wont' ever be duplicated, at least not in my lifetime. The images in this clip is just merely touch the surface in regards to the impact he had on the world. Major kudos to Spike Lee for directing this video.
I have always been a fan of the strip clubs. There were a few good ones in DC but they closed down. I heard about Magic City and went there one Monday and was amazed at the money on the ground. Came to Miami and went to the mega club down here and saw some of the craziest tricks ever...saw one girl set her p**** on fire...one girl dropped from thirty feet up in the air into a split..oh and lets not forget that it's goo-gobs of men there. Get… Continue

Twitter has gotten a lot of celebs in trouble. Last week Chris Brown and Mashonda (swizzle beats baby momma) deleted their twitter accounts after embarrassing tweets went out. I'm sure Ray Allen will be deleting his account soon.
Ray Allen is the latest NBA player to experience Twitter trouble. Last night an erotic tweet appeared from him, seemingly out of nowhere. It read: "I'm getting there. When you masturbate think…

I have been the other woman for quite some time to the love of my life. This man completes me in every shape form and fashion. Last week I received a phone call from his wife, and I told her she had the wrong number. She called me a whore and said she had hired a private investigator. This…
Where did the time go? I guess its true, time flies when you're having fun. Christmas comes around the same time every year & yet I'm never prepared for it. However, this year, I decided to do things a little different. I almost always avoid the malls during the Christmas rush, because I just don't have the patience. Therefore, a lot of my gifts truly came from the heart, including this here post.
Check out the latest video from Amerie's latest release, In Love & War. Amerie is definitely talented, however, she always seems to fall between the cracks when it comes to this industry. More Than Love is one of those tracks that play on your mental. Ladies, we've been there, done that when it comes to listening to a 3rd party when it comes to our relationships, however, that female intuition is a MOTHA & you know what I mean. I love the… Continue

After Rihanna and Chris Brown poor album sells..people started to question if the music business was doomed. Despite the snow storm that crippled the East coast..despite all the controversy of her dating Swizzle..AKeys sold 417k FIRST WEEK...
