While getting a mani/pedi at the X-rated Fusion Liquer sponsored event at Ten over Ten spa in New York City recently, La La Anthony shared her Thanksgiving plans with a source. The star of “La La’s Full Court” told reporters her family is going to Baltimore for Turkey Day where her husband Carmelo’s family resides. Said La La: “”Baltimore has great food, it’s known for crab cakes and seafood and I think it’s going to be a great holiday.”


Rapper Lil Wayne and his Young Money/Cash Money collective gave back in a major way the weekend before Thanksgiving by giving away turkeys.In addition to Lil Wayne, Bryan “Baby” Williams, Ronald “Slim” Williams and Lil Chuckie were also onhand for the cause in their hometown of New Orleans. This marks Cash Money’s 17th year giving way birds for Thanksgiving.


If you don’t feel like cooking and you’re in the Big Apple, Neelys’ Barbecue Parlor’s Thanksgiving Dinner Menu offers both dining at the restaurant and Take-Out. For $29.95 at the restaurant, the menu includes Roasted Pumpkin Bisque, Spinach Leaves, Slow Smoked Tom Turkey with cornbread dressing, cranberry relish, glazed yams, green beans with bacon and onions and Pumpkin pie. For $160, you can feed four people with Neelys’ Homemade Thanksgiving Dinner to go. Deep Fried Turkey with gravy, cornbread dressing with country sausage and Gina’s Collard Greens are some of the delectables on that menu.


Nicki Minaj opened the 39th Annual 2011 American Music Awards with “Turn Me On” alongside David Guetta followed by her own hit single “Super Bass.” The raptress had speakers inplanted into er backside. Nicki started crying during her acceptance speech after she beat out Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Jay-Z for Best Rap Album. She also took home the award for Best Hip Hop Artist. Meanwhile, Mary J. Blige performed her new single, “Mr. Wrong,” she then gave a quick tribute to the late Heavy D.
