Vibe Vixen Rents A Gent For V-Day! [Photos]

Rent a Gent

Vixen certainly knows how to heat things up!

We recently heard about the male entertainment website,, and decided to have a few of the gentlemen come by the office to "hang out." That's right: for $300/hr, you can rent a guy to accompany you on your lonely ventures; appeasing the single woman still in search of her prince charming.

Surprisingly, they were everything a woman could dream of in a man; good looking, fun, intelligent, talented and oh: they can cook! Romeo (which seems fitting) and Ray showed us why they're well worth their pricey rate while engaging in two hour play time. What came from this visit? Amazing chocolate chip pancakes, strawberries, whipped cream and a subtle serenade from Romeo (in the blue shirt).

Stripped down in a comfortable setting, the men weren't intimidated by our aggressive set of questions about the life of an "escort (a term they immediately debunked)."

Flip the pages and let your Rent-A-Gent envy sink in.

Rent a Gent

Where do girls take you on a date?

Ray: Typically like galas or some extravagant event.

Romeo: Yea, I've been to museums and most recently the opera.


Do you guys enjoy yourselves? What do you do if you really hate the girl?

Ray: You have to lie. You can't let the girl know anything is wrong.

Romeo: Yea, but there's actually good convo to be honest. You end up doing something different or learning something.


What if there isn't an attraction? Or if she tries to kiss you?

Ray: Oh, we don't let them do that stuff. I let them know up front sometimes.

Romeo: You gotta be on guard always. But I don't let that happen. There's a way to be charming and dance around it.


So sex is completely off limits?

Ray: Absolutely.

Romeo: Yea, a line is drawn.

Okay, but say you both had a few drinks. Wait, do you drink on the job?

Romeo: We have a couple of drinks, but not to the point where we're impaired.

Ray: Yea, we enjoy ourselves, but we don't become incoherent or a dysfunctional drunk. We drink to have a good time.


Is it possible to fall in love on a date?

Ray: Umm..... it has happened, but you always have to stay professional at the end of the day.


But after the professionalism ends - when you're off the clock; can you then pursue the woman?

Ray: (laughs) Like I said, we always have to be professional no matter what.

Romeo: Yea, it's a job. You can't mix business and pleasure.


Technically, it's both. So the girls that you meet as escorts; you can't have a relationship with?

Ray: We're not escorts.

Romeo: Oh, no - we're definitely not escorts.


I'm sorry, what is your label?

Ray: We're entertainers! We don't escort; that's a different type of thing.


Rent a Gent

What's the difference so that people don't make this mistake again?

Ray: Okay, escorts are like..... I don't mean to come off this way, but the women we date, these aren't just your average joes. These women are very wealthy. You saw our rates!


Oh yes! $300/hr! Who is buying men for this rate?

Ray: Yea, so it's like a targeted market for specific women. It's not the girls out of college or anything.


So what do you do that's so different from other men, that these women feel the need to pay a boatload?

Ray: We're just a form of entertainment for women. Let's say you want to go to the movies - we're just another option.

Romeo: Or if you want to go see a show with someone; that's us.

Rent a Gent

Is there any limitation to what activities you'll do?

Ray: We're pretty much down for anything. I'm uncomfortable with heights, but if she wants to skydiving - I'll do that.


What! You're willing to risk your life on the job? Skydiving may be a bit much.

Romeo: Listen, you risk your life everyday walking down the street (laughs).


Do you have to be well-versed in different topics for conversational purposes?

Romeo: It helps to know what you're talking about. You have to be interesting. Some women like politics, some like sports. The topics vary.

Ray: Say for example a woman wants to have a full blown conversation about musicals, I can tell her "look, I don't know too much on this subject, so you may need to school me."


What's the process like for becoming a Rent-A-Gent?

Ray: What I gather is that you want someone who can communicate, because not everyone is social. To be able to converse with all types of women. I know they did a test on us to see if we were put in an uncomfortable position, would we know how to still have a presence in a room.

Rent a Gent

Do you do your own dating outside of this? How could a woman understand this?

Ray: It's a job.


And if she made you choose?

Ray: I'd choose my job. If I meet someone, you can't just expect me to quit my job.

Romeo: It's a compromise, too.


Has your job ever been a conflict in your personal life?

Ray: For me, no.

Romeo: No, not at all. Because I'm single, so it's not an issue to do what I do.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
