Mashonda is letting us all know that she is back on the market!! She is graces the cover of the upcoming May/June King magazine. Here are a few highlights from the piece.
KING: Can you explain the “Loyalty” tattoo on your hand?MASHONDA: I got it a year after everything started going downhill. It’s a reminder to me that I have to be loyal to myself for once.Elaborate, please.I was so loyal to everyone, and I totally forgot about me. This is what it represents—it represents loyalty to self. Now I have to do things that I love to do, and I have to make myself happy, because I don’t really agree when people say, “I need a man ’cause I want to be happy,” or “I’m not happy because I don’t have a man.” That’s not where it starts. Happiness starts from within, and that’s in my focus.You’re also focused on Love & Hip-Hop. So the show does not revolve around you.Exactly. I did a few episodes [first], then ended up doing a lot of episodes because the chemistry was perfect with me and Emily. I ended up being a recurring guest, and it worked out perfectly, because I’m on the show and people get to see me and hear my stories. But it’s not like a character that’s 100 percent there.What is your role with Emily?I’m like her support system, her counselor. I feel like a female Dr. Phil. That person who gives her advice and is not afraid to tell her my story and show her my life, ’cause I really want her to get hers together.
How are you going to handle all the groupies that are sure to be coming your way?You mean the groupie boys?Or groupie girls. You never know.Yeah, you never know. I mean, they all love me.After they see this spread, they’ll love you more. Word to Angela Winbush.[Laughs] Oh, Lord, you know what, I show everybody love. But I don’t like the word “groupie”—it’s so harsh. I don’t feel there’s anything wrong with one person admiring another person.Who is admiring you nowadays? Have you’ve been hitting the dating scene lately?I have. I recently went on a date, and it was incredible.Sounds like homeboy is getting a call back.Yeah, definitely.
I’m no True Blood fan. Something about vampires that don’t eat people just ain’t right. But while I was channel surfin’ one day I saw this pretty little chocolate lady run across the screen.. Now she was sweatin’ like Patrick Ewing in the fourth, covered in blood and looked scared as hell…but I knew she was hidin’ some fine somewhere! So I went and holla’d at my friend, GoogleIt…and low and behold….

Welcome home……..Now back to work
So I am sitting here trying to find the best way to display some beautiful pics from King Magazine of Rosa Acosta I ran across. These particular portraits pose a challenge because they are out of the ordinary for us here at UML. See we pride ourselves in being the all-purpose life-style site for Moguls and Mogulettes alike. So with that being said we try to have a standards that we go by. (Meaning you probably won’t find any nudies here, we a family site!)
But with that being said I just have to post these pics just in case some of Moguls out there would like a little eye-candy to go with the eggnog.
So here, pics of Rosa Acosta for your holiday pleasure.
With rapper T.I. serving time behind bars, it looks a little vacant in the camp of Grand Hustle as it relates to who will be taking charge of the label and keep the music moving while the King is away.
With new artists such as Yung L.A. hopping to the label and veterans such as Mike Bigga and B.G. associating themselves with T.I.’s camp, some have come to wonder what happened to the original artists and when they will pop back into the spotlight. Continue reading
