The Tweet: “LOL! Mel’s gonna get u 4 sayin that RT @NICKIMINAJ: Just beat @carmeloanthony and @lalavazquez in Spades. Lmao. *sigh* good night yall!”
The Tale: This was the first time we hung out—July 4 weekend. We’d been talking on Twitter, and Melo and I were having people over so I invited her. We played for four hours talking mess. She’s actually really good. When people say they play spades, you never know if they’re just saying that. But she did not beat us!
The Tweet: “Come get these bird seeds I left for you @ihatekatstacks … I AINT THE ONE.. I’m only gonna to tell you ONE time”
The Tale: I wasn’t surprised [by Kat Stacks’ tweet to Carmelo]— you’re not surprised by people like that. [She] doesn’t fit anything I stand for. I could’ve done better in that situation. I never want to give negativity more shine. No one looked at me in a negative way, but I regret [that tweet].
The Tweet: “Ran into Halle Berry today..that women amazes me…”
The Tale: [Me and Halle] usually cross paths when working out— we share the same trainer, [Gunnar Peterson]. She grinds for that body. People don’t see that. There’s something about being in sweats while talking about our kids. She’ll end with, “I hope Gunnar doesn’t kill you like he killed me!” It’s amazing to see a successful person remain so personable.
The Tweet: “Bare w/ me I’m going to tweet about my pink range rover being 4 sale on ebay, everyday a couple times a day for a week”
The Tale: A magenta Range Rover attracts a lot of attention in L.A. I remember these Arabian princesses cutting me off saying, “We’ve never seen anything like this!” People were having photo shoots in front of the car! But as my popularity grew, it was harder to maneuver. I would always think someone was following me at night. Had to let it go.
The Tweet: “Its so easy to point fingers and criticize other people but whens the last time we took a good look in our own backyard? #fact”
The Tale: Everyone has their breaking point. Something I’ve heard is, “You never see her with her son.” That’s bullshit. I don’t even have a live-in nanny or babysitter—that’s not the way I parent my son. I’m here with him every day. When you hear that… that’s just a real slap in the face.
The Tweet: “Where are my cd’s @kimkardashian???!!!!!”
The Tale: Kim makes really good mixed CDs—usually hip-hop. I know people do the whole iPod thing, but it’s cool for someone to hand you a CD with 15 songs, old-school style. She even blends them all! I’ll be in the car with Melo, and he’s like, “Damn this is dope!”
