Viacom has a new lawsuit on their hands…
According to sources outside of Deejaytakeover.com” Perri ‘Pebbles’ Reed of TLC controversy fame is suing the network for $40 million over the movie “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.”
Reid claims in Atlanta federal court that the 2013 VH1 movie portrays her “as a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.”
An R&B singer who has herself sold over 4 million records, Reid says in the suit that Viacom “ignored fundamental canons of journalistic and literary conduct by publishing false and defamatory accusations with actual malice.”
The suit filed late Friday states that, contrary to what VH1 viewers saw, Reid never controlled TLC’s lawyers or accountants, never withheld contract terms from TLC and always paid the group what they were owed.
After selling 11 million copies of their 1994 album “CrazySexyCool,” TLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Record execs said TLC only filed in order to void their contracts, but the girls, who sued LaFace Records and Pebbitone, Reid’s management compancy, claimed they were paid only $50,000 a year each in 1993 and 1994.
A spokesperson for Viacom said, “It’s our policy not to comment on matters in litigation.”

Nicki Minaj shared her thoughts on last Sunday’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta while chatting with Lance Bass while doing an interview promoting her new film, The Other Woman.
Is Nicki Team Porsha or Team Kenya?
“Let me say this, being that I do love Kenya — if it was someone else and not Kenya, I would have said ‘oh, she got what was coming to her,’ because she definitely provoked Porsha,
I mean, I wouldn’t have sat there and let nobody do that to me — like, the scepter and then the blow-horn. Whatever it’s called. But, I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. somebody would have had to get knocked upside the head!
I think Kenya, she’s very smart, and she makes chess moves. She knows how to get under people’s skin. If Porsha knew better, than she wouldn’t let people rile her up as quickly. I think it’s a learning experience. I’ve gone through my fair share of feeling like ‘oh my god, I let somebody get under my skin.”

After all the publicity surrounding Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Reality Stars Mimi Faust & Nikko tape that surfaced earlier this week; TMZ caught up with the couple to see how they felt about curtain rods selling out throughout the nation at Home Depot because of them! Crazy video interview watch the video below!
Porsha Williams has been charged with assault and a warrant for her arrest has been issued — both stemming from her fight with Kenya Moore during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.
UPDATE: Porsha has already turned herself in to Atlanta authorities and was charged with misdemeanor battery. She was released after posting a $2,000 bond.
Original TMZ story below….
ATL cops are going after Porsha over a fight she had with Kenya Moore on the set of the show. Porsha allegedly attacked Kenya, who filed a police report. The show has the raw footage, and that was enough to charge Porsha with misdemeanor battery — thus the warrant.
Porsha’s lawyer, Joe Habachy, tells TMZ she will surrender Thursday.
Also sources have stated Porsha plans to go after Kenya … she wants the D.A. to file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore.
Do you think Porsha getting her hands on Kenya was worth getting arrested over? This is crazy! Remember to tune into the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion this coming Sunday night to see the whole altercation play it.
Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Peter Thomas is finally speaking out to UPTOWN magazine in his own defense after NeNe Leakes referred to him as a ‘bitch’ during an argument that aired on the show a several weeks ago. In a recent new interview with UPTOWN magazine, Peter is an open book as he explains his feelings during and after the whole thing went down. He begins: “In March, our viewers and fans witnessed Nene Leakes, someone I’ve supported, cheered for and considered a friend for a few years now, completely disrespect me on national television by recklessly saying I was “acting like a bitch.” Why? Simply because I thought my friend could have handled herself more professionally and with much more class at a specific charity event. Well guess what? I still think my friend was out of line in the way she acted. It was probably the most uncomfortable situation I’ve found myself in on the show thus far.” Peter recounts his experience when NeNe’s husband Gregg approached him in Mexico: “So imagine my surprise, my anger and my disappointment when my friend verbally attacked me in Mexico while Gregg and I were discussing what happened at the charity event. First of all, I never confronted Nene. I was talking to Cynthia and explaining to my wife that Nene’s behavior that night made me (and many others in attendance) uncomfortable and why I wanted to leave, when Nene approached me. She got in my face, not the other way around. So Gregg was completely wrong in his assessment of what actually happened. As a friend, I felt it necessary to explain to her my position and why I think she was wrong. Was she upset because I violated the “Nene Leakes Friends Agreement” and went rogue by questioning her actions and calling her out on her antics? Challenging Mrs. Leakes is apparently something you don’t do. I guess it’s obvious that I didn’t get that memo.” He also addresses the numerous memes created as ‘bitch-gate’ unfolded on television. Peter says he’s upset they came from NeNe trying to emasculate him in front of the world. “Her insults continued in her Housewives’ confessionals and spurred the creation of several memes and caricatures of me in drag, and in the cast lineup alongside the ladies holding my own peach (the signature logo for the Atlanta housewives franchise). Most were hilarious, and pretty damn creative I might add. Yet, these images were born from my friend’s harsh insult and attempt at emasculating me.” He ends with constructive criticism for his dear friend. “Nene’s used to being loud, wild and obnoxious. That’s what’s made her famous I assume. But it’s also what’s making her unlikeable to so many. She’s gone from dancing on the pole in hood strip clubs to Dancing With The Stars on television screens worldwide, and that’s simply phenomenal. I am proud of the trajectory she is on. However, I am very disappointed in my friend’s inability to accept responsibility for her actions. And let me be clear, Nene won’t be great until she can admit when she is wrong. Friends should be able to provide constructive criticism of one another, especially when it is coming from a very good place. Attacking each other only leads to hard feelings and hard falls.” Very interested interview we wish Peter well.
