Originally posted on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show:

This 2-year old can’t ride in a car without a car seat, but he can rock a party without any assistance. DJ Arch Jnr is a 2-year-old South African DJ, according to his Facebook page. But the 2-year-old’s skills behind the tables will amaze you. And that might even be an understatement. He’s keeping a beat and rocking the house, looking more focused than club DJs while he’s at it.

Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger just spilled the tea on Kenya Moore’s boyfriend.

Playing out her love life on camera hasn’t played out well for Kenya on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Perhaps that’s why she’s decided to keep her current relationship off the screen. It’s probably a smart decision.
