HOLIDAY's GREETINGSHey all you beautiful people,pretty people,cute people,alright people and those toe fungus ugly..it's me your editor and chief/founder of this thing called HollyHood Blogazine.
This is titled Holiday's Greetings because I go by the name Holiday N. and this is my greeting...duh! This is my equivalent to like Jay Leno's Monologue.
I would like to urge anybody that is able to do so,to donate what you can to all those poor people who aren't fortunate right now to be reading blogs and living a normal day due to Hurricane Katrina.Red Cross is the main organization at the moment accepting donations.
I knew from the name of the Hurricane that it was gonna be a disaster.Katrina sounds like that ghetto chick that comes around just to fuck up your good time,sloppy drunk pissing on herself while cussing everybody out and ready to fight anybody that tries to stop her ass.Didn't she bring her ass to the VMA's and then where'd she go...to fuck up Mardi Gras town..Fuck you Katrina.
I had on my platinum and blue diamond Jesus on the Cross necklace on my way back from Miami the other day and this guy staring blatantly at my thighs and breast like it was a combo meal at POPEYE's comes over and says to me boldly while licking his lips "I'm glad you know that your body is like a Temple" I said back to him "Yeah and there's no services today".
Thanks ladies and Gentleman for visiting my little blogazine again..remember to link me and tell all your friends to check me out...

YOU WANT FRIES WITH THIS GOSSIP 2 GO?LIL' KIM..QUEEN BITCH FO' REAL(via page six)
LIL' Kim proved herself to be a first-class pain on a USAir flight from Fort Lauderdale to New York last night. The Brooklyn-born "Queen Bee" — who's headed to prison for a year and a day on a Manhattan perjury rap — was almost booted off the plane after a loud argument with a flight attendant. Our on-board snitch texted us, minutes before the 6 p.m. takeoff, "Lil' Kim totally freaked out on the attendant. Some first-class seat mix-up. Called the agent a racist and pulled a 'Do You Know Who I Am?' The attendant had no idea and could have really cared less. Taking off shortly. She's now seated in back row of first class and has to be served by the flight attendant who she fought with. Things seem a little tense up there."
MTV VMA GOSSIP
Suge Knight, who was shot in the leg at Kanye West's party at the Shore Club, snatched a bottle of Hennessey from a fellow partygoer before he took the bullet. Knight was making himself a drink at someone else's table when a woman told him to stop. The hip-hop thug responded, "Oh, yeah?" and walked off with the bottle.
* Security was beefed up at several VMA after-parties following the trash-talking between Fat Joe and 50 Cent after Fat Joe cracked, "We can thank G-Unit for all the extra security." During the telecast, 50 and his G-Unit posse ended their performance by yelling, "FUCK Fat Joe! FUCK Terror Squad!" into their mics.
Jamie Foxx had some fun at the expense of O.J. Simpson at Ocean Drive's party at the Loews Hotel. After spotting Simpson, Foxx grabbed a mic and yelled, "It's a killer party — O.J.'s here!" He then commanded the crowd to "Do the O.J." while making a stabbing motion. Other guests included Colin Farrell, Eddie Murphy, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey.
DIDDY DONE DID IT AGAIN DAMMIT
According to AllHipHop.com, Beckford, 34, filed a breach of contract and copyright infringement suit against Diddy for continuing to use his image and likeness in the ad campaign long after his contract had expired.
"What we have here is a blatant case of wrong doing on behalf of Mr. Combs and Sean John," says Beckford's attorney, Kenneth Montgomery. "They willfully continued to use Mr. Beckford's image without permission because he's become known as the face of Sean John."
Beckford, a one time model for Ralph Lauren and Guess, reportedly made several attempts to handle the issue with Diddy personally before filing the lawsuit. The trial is set for Feb. 6 at the Southern District Court of New York.
LIL MO DISCUSSES THE STATE OF HIP HOP
"Nobody is real anymore! Singers are afraid to sing," began Mo. "Most of them are more concerned with dancing instead of singing. These chicks can't stand alone, either, because most of them have their CEOs in their music video."
Mo says the reason for the current state of "watered down R&B" is "a lot of hip-hop men are behind the singers now." She continued: "They're only concerned with putting out a hot track and having their singers dance. But most of them can't even perform these songs live. At the rate we're at now, we're not going to have any more Gladys Knights, Patti LaBelles and Aretha Franklins."
The Roun'Table/Cash Money Records artist adds there are some singers who "still saaang" and Fantasia, Faith Evans, Monica and Mary J. Blige are among those she credits. "My dream tour would be to go out on the road with Fantasia and Faith. I rock with both of them hard," she said.
The Baltimore-bred belter admits she could do without many of the other girls out now. "I see some of them and ask where is Ashanti when you need her," laughed Mo.
We asked Mo about her rumored beef with newcomer Keyshia Cole that apparently began after Mo made similar comments about new singers on the syndicated Star & Buc Wild Morning Show. "I was in New York at Dream Hotel preparing to do a show. She saw my manager Phil Thornton (of Bright Star Entertainment) and my stylist in the lobby and asked them what they were doing there. When they said they were there to see me, she said, 'You all are traitors. She is the enemy.' Then she stormed off. I heard she was drunk, so I brushed it off and blamed it on the alcohol," recalled Mo.
I WONDER WHO??
Sources say a certain conscious rapper probably doesn't realize that his girlfriend's girlfriend is really her girlfriend! That's right, said rapper's gal pal is a part-time lesbian and is apparently cheating on him with a popular female deejay. No one wants to tell the hip-hopper that his missus has a mistress because when it comes to gay life, apparently he doesn't get down.

HEY READERS..Well I see that your loyalty to me is fleeting.As I come back from washed out Miami chilling with some of Hollywood's and HollyHood's finest I notice that my readership dropped from like 2,000 or so a day to yesterday's 200..lol I love it..because now I have to work harder to get back the old people plus all the new...so tell errbody that Holiday the Princess of Blog is back and she needs subjects.Well the VMA's have come and gone and if you want my personal experience check out my personal blog The Heiress Diaries.I'm actually going away again in a few days but when I get back you know mama is gonna shut shit down(that means I'll be better than ever).

GOSSIP 2 GOMOS CRAZY
MULTI-talented rapper/actor Mos Def is one busy dude. We hear the Brooklyn-born performer, whose real name is Dante Terrell Smith, has five children by five different women. But that's not all: The latest rumor is that the devout Muslim has two wives. One of Mos Def's many former flames tells PAGE SIX he married Wife No. 2 after knowing her for just a few days. A rep for the randy rhymer seemed to take the news in stride, but declined comment on the alleged multiple children and wives.
READ HER LIPS
Ashlee Simpson, who was busted for a "Saturday Night Live" lip-synch gone awry, will perform on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" this fall, says her manager-father, Joe Simpson.
Earlier in the week, Simpson had confirmed reports that Ashlee was in negotiations for a return to NBC's "SNL," where she was caught using background vocals last October.
BRITNEY WILL BEAT A BITCH'S ASS (EVEN IF SHE'S 13)
BRITNEY Spears stormed the set of little sister Jamie Lynn Spears' Nickelodeon show, "Zoey 101," last week and screamed at a 13-year-old co-star who had been feuding with Jamie Lynn — leaving the traumatized tweenster in tears.
According to our on-set snitch: "Britney had the talent coordinator bring [co-star] Alexa Nikolas over to Jamie Lynn's trailer — where she proceeded to scream that Alexa was an 'evil little girl,' and that she had better watch herself or she 'will never work in this town again!' "
The source adds, "Alexa was in tears. She was sobbing and totally upset — I mean, she has been buying Britney CDs since she was 6, and then Britney tears her to pieces? It was totally uncalled for. While Jamie Lynn is the star, Alexa still works there and it is technically her set. And the fight was a petty, 13-year-old thing between Alexa and Jamie Lynn, who is becoming a real pest. Britney should have stayed out of it."
Another source says Jamie Lynn is "a real diva, and is even worse now because she is in the midst of contract negotiations and asking for a lot of money."
A spokeswoman for both Spears sisters says: "Jamie Lynn and another girl on set were having problems, as 13-year-olds do. Britney did have words with the girl, but felt she was sticking up for her sister. She did not yell by any means, she just gave the girl a sisterly talking to and wondered why they just couldn't all get along."
The rep declined to comment on Jamie Lynn's contract negotiations.
DON'T EAT THE SPECIAL SAUCE AT BISTRO DU VENT
AN after-hours orgy erupted at celebrity chef Mario Batali's Bistro Du Vent last week, resulting in the firing of four staffers, PAGE SIX has learned.
The randy sex romp between an openly bisexual waitress, a male chef, a female manager and a waiter was captured on the West 42nd Street restaurant's surveillance cameras, which feed to a monitor right next to the host's stand.
We're told that the oversexed staffers were boozing it up at the bar after closing when things got physical.
Our snitch, who saw the steamy surveillance footage, says the X-rated action took place "on the bar top, down to the floor, on top of the banquettes — chef on waitress, manager on waiter, waiter on waitress, all four tangled up in one bunch."
But apparently the night porter caught a glimpse of the freaky festivities, and told the incoming dishwashers and busboys that morning on his way out. They, in turn, tattled to the waiters and waitresses, who all crowded around the host stand monitor and watched the orgy unspool, freeze-framing it at points for maximum enjoyment.
Later that afternoon, Bistro Du Vent general manager Jeremy Noye announced to his staff that four employees had been fired, adding, "That's all I'm going to say, and we're going to move on from here."
When we called Noye for comment yesterday, he told us, "I'm going to let Mario handle this. I'm not in a position to make any official comment at this time."

YOU TALKIN TO HER? YOU TALKIN TO HER??
ROBERT De Niro's former maid, Lucyna Turyk-Wawrynowic, called the star's wife, Grace Hightower, "mean" in court papers — and she's not alone in her opinion. A very close friend of De Niro told PAGE SIX: "When they separated [briefly at one time], everyone was celebrating. She is just not a nice woman and treats people she thinks are beneath her very badly. When she comes to [De Niro-owned eatery] Nobu, the staff there just freezes and starts to sweat. She was a stewardess when she met Bob!"
BRAD IS COMING TO NYC LADIES AND WE KNOW HE LIKES TO CHEAT
BRAD Pitt is temporarily trading his Malibu digs for a mansion in the Hamptons. Sources tell The Post's Braden Keil that the recently divorced star will be renting a gated, high-hedged estate on Ox Pasture Road in Southampton for two months after Labor Day, while home-wrecking hottie Angelina Jolie is filming "The Good Shepherd" in New York. Jolie junkies would do well to hit the East End on Saturday, where the orphan-loving actress is slated to co-host a Haitian Relief Benefit with Meryl Streep at Andrea Kerzner's house in Wainscott

HOLIDAY'S QUESTION OF THE DAY...If you could create your own fabulous version of the happy meal, what would it contain?
Don't limit yourself to fast food, and don't forget to include a toy!
JUST THINK FAB.
IS THIS HOLLYWOOD?What happened in Hollywood that glamour has disappeared? I remember the stars used to get gorgeous just to go to the store,am I the only person who still does that?I mean I know it's unrealistic to believe or hope that someone could look good 24/7 but isn't that their job?
Don't we shell out lots of dollars for movies,magazines,fashion,CD's,and concert tickets so that we can see our favorite celebs looking and sounding flawless? We don't want our stars to to look and dress like we do,it's why we call them stars,stars are bright,amazing,almost unreachable entities.The stars now should be called Larry.Larry is just some guy walking down the street fitting in and wearing average clothes and never really sticking out.
Whitney,Mariah,Diana(Ross), Divas o' the day have all lost their damn minds and the latest stars are surely following this trend.

JESSICA SIMPSON'S AD FOR HER NEW LINE OF JEANS
GOSSIP 2 GO 8/24NEW GOTTI LOW?
VICTORIA Gotti never had breast cancer, as the Daily News claimed on its front page last Sunday — nor did she ever suffer a heart attack or earn a law degree.
Matthew Rich, her publicist of seven years, quit in disgust on Monday because his best friend's mother had died of breast cancer, a source told PAGE SIX. Rich was said to be revolted that Victoria would promote the third season of "Growing Up Gotti" by making up such a tearful tall tale.
When we called for comment, Rich would only say, "I no longer work for Victoria Gotti." Asked if she had ever suffered from cancer, he replied, "No comment."
The daughter of legendary Gambino crime boss John "Dapper Don" Gotti was quoted in the News as saying: "The day I got my mammogram and the doctor told me I had breast cancer, it was in mid-November. I had a little pity party for myself and I cried all day . . . I lost 25 pounds . . . I was so exhausted, I could barely lift my arms."
But Gotti backed away from the story Monday night on CNBC's "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch."
The 42-year-old mother-of-three said she was not diagnosed with breast cancer as reported in the News, but with pre-cancerous cells she chose to treat aggressively before it became cancer. "What I had can be described as a scare," she said on the show.
She told us yesterday: "I could leave it alone and watch it, or get surgery. I chose to be aggressive and get the surgery." The surgically-enhanced blonde describes herself now as "100 percent well."
News columnist Joanna Molloy said: "Don't tell me Victoria is shape-shifting the truth again. She told us in January she had breast cancer, and that's the reason she took a leave of absence from Star magazine. She told us again last week, and we recorded it."
It might not be the first time Gotti has made a bogus bid for sympathy. A former friend said Victoria confided four years ago she had breast cancer, "but then she went into work the next day as if nothing had happened. I didn't believe it then, and I don't believe it now."
The News also goofed in reporting that Victoria suffered a "heart attack" a few years ago at one of her sons' basketball games. "The original story said 'heart incident.' An editor changed it to 'heart attack,' " Victoria told us yesterday.
In another howler, the News stated, "She got a law degree." At St. John's University, the only college Gotti has ever been known to attend, spokeswoman Suzi Halpin told us, "We have no record that she graduated from St. John's."
Gotti told us: "I have no law degree. I never had a law degree. I don't know where that got started."
RAY CHARLES II
WILL Jamie Foxx channel Ray Charles once again? That's the buzz out of South Beach, where Foxx is co-hosting Ocean Drive magazine's pre-"Video Music Awards" bash at the Loews Hotel on Saturday night. Not only has the singing Oscar-winner requested a piano onstage, he also designed a party-style deejay booth on the center of the stage with seating for 40 and six microphones for friends like Kanye West, Common and Snoop Dogg (who all appear on his new album, due out on J Records in November).
R.KELLY JUST ADDED TO VMA PERFORMANCES
The MTV Video Music Awards have been defined by stirring performances, shocking surprises and sexual shenanigans. Now the network has booked an act that might provide all three elements in one performance R. Kelly.
The chart-topping R&B singer was named Tuesday as one of the performers at Sunday's awards show in Miami. Kelly, whose latest album, "TP.3 Reloaded," has sold more than 1 million copies, created buzz this summer with his five-part song, "Trapped in the Closet," a mini soap opera about infidelity.
The 38-year-old singer, known for his sexually charged material, also faces multiple child pornography charges in his native Chicago stemming from a three-year-old case that allegedly involves a teenage girl. The case, which has yet to go to trial, hasn't hurt Kelly's recording career: In the interim, he has released four albums that have sold more than 1 million copies each and charted several hits.
FLOETRY SET TO RELEASE 3RD ALBUM
Floetry will drop their third album “Flo’Ology” on Nov. 8 via Geffen Records. The duo – consisting of Marsha Ambrosius (the Songstress) and Natalie Stewart (the Floacist) – say this set explores the spectrum of romantic relationships.
"Flo'Ology is about women taking more responsibility for what goes on in our lives," explains Stewart. "Now that Marsha and I are more mature, we've come to a better understanding of ourselves, and naturally that's reflected on the album."
DESTINY'S ORIGINAL CHILDREN ARE READY FOR DEBUT
Booted out of the singing squad in 2000 by their manager (and Beyonce’s daddy) Mathew Knowles following a seven-year run, LaToya and her fellow bootee, LaTavia Roberson, formed the duo Angel, which never quite took flight.
But during Luckett’s rocky road, she never took her eyes off the prize. The singer is now signed with Capitol Records and will release her self-titled solo album in February, reports MTV.com. Before its release, Luckett will drop two singles, "All Eyes on Me" in August, followed by the Scott Storch-produced "I'm Good."
"I still love all of those girls and wish them the best of luck," she said of current D-Child members Beyonce, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. "And I know they are all going to do well solo. I'm sure they're growing apart and going through things, but God is with them and they have a strong bond."
CAN YOU SAY BOOMERANG?
Eddie Murphy didn't waste much time getting over his soon-to-be-ex-wife Nicole Murphy. On Aug. 20, just two weeks after former model Nicole, 38, filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, Eddie, 44, was spotted flirting up a storm with actress Robin Givens — Mike Tyson's former wife — at Hollywood's hot Cabana Club. Onlookers tells Star that Givens, 40, looking sensational in a tight black skirt, entered the club shortly after Eddie, greeted him with a hug, and launched into an intimate chat, at one point stroking his face and kissing his ear. "She was practically sitting on his lap!" said one eyewitness. "Robin was giggling like a school girl and flirtatiously batting her eyes. Eddie was clearly interested in every word Robin uttered, but it was she who did most of the overt flirting, rubbing his leg or occasionally touching his face. The only time the pair tore away from each other was to sip on their Skyy vodka and cranberry cocktails."
MEET QUENTIN ELIASQuentin Elias was born on May 10th 1980 in Marseille in the south of France.He really hated school and his mom worried he would be influenced by the bad neighborhood. She pushed him to play sports.However, Quentin had something else in mind. His sister was involved in the performing arts and he too became fascinated. After talking his mom into taking dance, he enrolled and began tap dance classes at age 6, this later evolved to classes at the Katia Barcelo dance studio in ballet, modern jazz and then kickboxing at age 12. Quentin had developed a passion for performing.
At age 15 he ran away to Paris. With a few dollars in his pocket, he slept his first nights in Paris on the streets. He started working in restaurants and other odd jobs while auditioning for several dancing and singing roles.
Until one day, the producer, GERARD LOUVIN was trying to put a band together, and decided to give Quentin a chance. He was selected from 1,000 participants to be the lead singer in a new band.A journey and adventure started for Quentin with ALLIAGE. Alliage became a huge overnight success with Quentin as the main star. Alliage sold more than 5 million CD's, had three albums, six singles on the top five charts and performed all over the world with more than 1,000 sold out concerts.
Still feeling as something was missing and wanting more, Quentin moved to NYC and had the chance to meet the promoter MARK NELSON, whom introduced him to the very talented music producer, JUNIOR VASQUEZ. Together they decided to start working on an album project that finally sounded like Quentin! With the help of ALAN BARSON, and JUNIOR VASQUEZ, Quentin has begun to embark on his own American dream.
YOUR ASS HAS BEEN SINGLE TOO LONG WHEN...Top 10 signs you've been single too long..
1-People assume that you're gay and if you're gay and single they assume that you're impotent
2-The man at the adult video store knows you by name
3-Your only lunch dates,late night phone calls and sweet homecooked meals are with your mother.
4-You take extra special care of your left hand..(think about that one)
5-You can't remember the last time you had sex but you do remember you had a flat top at the time
6-If the last time you got a Valentine's day gift you were in braces
7-You hide your sex toys..from your other sex toys
8-Your stink breath,dirty finger nailed, 4 teeth having,onion and garlic smelling friend that wears his ear hair braided is engaged
9-You watch so much porn that you think you're just a pizza delivery away from a good fuck
10-When you got your last prostate exam you came...twice.
APRENDE..IT'S NOT JUST A GAY PORN TITLEHave you ever seen a cute latino papi or mami and wanted to holla but due to the language barriers your game is just...malo?
Here's some basic spanish that should be able to get you in good with the latino(a) of your dreams.Or at least be able to go to Cancun without sounding like an asshole.
10 essential words you should know:
hello -- hola
My name is -- Me llamo (me yamo)
What is your name? -- ¿Como se llama? (Como se yama)
Please -- Por favor
Thank you very much -- Muchas gracias
Your welcome -- Bienvenido
Goodbye -- Adios
Good day/morning -- Buenos dias/tardes
Excuse me -- Con permiso
Nice to meet you -- Encantado
Here are some useful phrases, which may come in handy:
I don't understand -- No comprendo
I don't speak Spanish -- No hablo español
Do you have a boyfriend? -- ¿Tiene un novio?
How do I get to [fill in name of location] -- ¿Como se llega a [...]? (como se yega a [...])
Where is the washroom? -- ¿Donde esta el cuarto de baño?
It was a pleasure to meet you -- Era un placer de haberla conocido.
Once you have some of the basics down, there are ways for you to brush up on the language and gradually learn more Spanish:
Watch A Movie
A good way to get a taste for a new language is to rent the Spanish dubbed version of a movie that you know really well. Don't be too impressed with yourself if you figure out that Hasta la vista, baby is Spanish for, "See you later, baby".
Carry A Spanish/English Dictionary
This is especially important when you are traveling in a foreign country. Carrying a bilingual dictionary with you at home is a very effective way to gradually learn a language and lets you see how everyday words are translated whenever they arise in your daily activities. Curious to know how you say lingerie in Spanish? No problem, go to the L section of the dictionary and you'll know in no time!
