HAPPY BIRTHDAY MELVIN
There was a plenty of bottle popping going on recently as retired HPD Officer Melvin “P-Diddy” Preston’s wife, Denise, hosted an entire weekend of events for her sweetie.
The festivities kicked off Friday night at Pappadeaux’s, yes the hot one, on 610. There the entire back area served as the backdrop for a cajun feast. Party goers lavished gifts and song on him as they dined on menu delicacies, and the party trays, hot out of the kitchen, and bottles never stopped coming!!! Melvin’s wife presented him with a platinum bracelet and beautiful necklace.
The next night, the party scene moved over to Club Grooves. Talk about bottles, bottles, bottles! Family and friends danced the night away as Melvin continued to celebrate “25”. The club served the party goers, fried chicken fingers, fish fillets, french fries and yummy dips as well. And again, the party trays never stopped coming! Both nights, there were homemade birthday cakes presented to the guest of honor.
Sunday signaled the closing of the celebrations with early morning church service, followed by an intimate Sunday dinner at Eddy V’s, for only the grown and sexy! Well wishers that participated in the weekends’ events include Moses Malone, Gaylon Davenport, Kelvin “KJ” Johnson, Yolanda Daggs, Dr. Carlton and Carol Smile, Ruby Cole, Annie Preston, Deborah Preston, Robert and Lisa Jackson, Elizabeth Thomas, Willie and Serkitra Hawkins, Gladys Preston, Tanya Preston, Mary Wilson, Delise Stewart, Stephon Rhea, Sandra Rhea, Eron Rhea, CJ Preston, Xavier Harvey, Marcus and Donna Alfred, Deion Alfred, Terry and JoEtta Pettiway, Gwen and George Shannon, Cedric “Rock” Rodgers and lady friend.
Tongues are still wagging over the recent arrest of a certain celebrity chef who, while being escorted by federal agents, told the awaiting news cameras to “come a little closer” as this clown gave a quick interview. He answered media questions - stating things like “pay your taxes,” “It’s a recession,” etc. Really? Are you kidding me? Any real gangSTAR knows you go in “stone-faced,” not saying a damn thing to nobody! Does anybody ever pay attention to the sign “Don’t Mess With Texas”? That means you can’t come down to Texas, Mr. Celebrity Chef, and play all those fool games, be a fugitive from the law, and it not come to something in Texas. Maybe you played with those Memphis, Tennessee authorities and they let you slip thru the cracks, but the eyes of Texas are always on you! Those alphabet boys that do it for Texas, baby, they do it BIG!
And they are also talking about how being able to afford a $400,000 Lambo and being able to drive one are two different things. As seen the other day, on TV, when a local sportsbar owner leaving an Uptown Park hot spot let his White brand New Lambo get loose and hit half a dozen people in the parking lot, including, but not limited to a Mercedes Benz head on! Po thang, since it was only a week old, wonder what the insurance man gonna say bout that! DANG
