*Brittni Mealy has gotten a bad rap, coming a from Magic City dance pole and shaking that a** for money to being a rapper’s girlfriend and now a business owner and model.
The drama in her not so private life has overshadowed her potential, however, and she wants the world to know that there’s more to her than her beef with Ciara and her exotic dancing past.
If we may, hustler should be her middle name. She says as a child, she was always on the grind, finding ways to not only make money, but also triple it and make it stack. A 9 to 5 was never in her genes and quite naturally, the independent neo-Atlanta belle is building her own empire.
Her two-year old online boutique clothing shop, PopOfJunk.net from the start was a hit, she says. The demand for her products have not only saturated Atlanta, but also penetrated the international fashion market.
Becoming a businesswoman and having her life on Front Street has given her a new outlook on life.
Brittney M. Walker: Your name in the media is nothing but drama. Who is the real Brittni Mealy?
Brittni Mealy: The media tries to display me as being somebody that’s (wants some money from my dad’s child). But I have my own business for two years now and it does great. And I style people, but the media never really speaks on that. I’m always attacked on Twitter and Instagram and people are always cussing me out. No, I’m a business owner, and I work really hard at that. I can survive even if I didn’t get $1 in child support or anything like that. I’m able to take care of myself.
BMW: What prompted you to start PopOfJunk.net?
BM: Pop of Junk is an online boutique for women. We have a couple of men’s pieces and for little girls. The reason I started was because I wanted to do something for myself. I was in a relationship and I traveled a lot with my son’s dad. But I was like, I’m just being a girlfriend and he’s living his dream. What am I doing for myself? So I started Pop of Junk, and it originally was only accessories. The first or second day I opened it, it did so good. The first week it was successful… so I said let me continue going with this.
BMW: What are some of your favorite fashion trends this season?
BM: I really like plaid, it’s really back in heavy, leggings and shorts with the combat boots, the 90s grunge style, that’s kind of what’s in right now.
BMW: What’s next for you?
BM: I’m starting to learn how to sketch and designing. Maybe by the winter next year, I want to have my own collection.
BMW: How is your relationship with Future now? Is he a good father?
BM: We’ve had issues in the past, but now we’re working together to be great parents to our son. I’m maturing as a woman. I’m starting to open up and see things Future’s way a little you know compromise a little. We’re getting along and I just want to keep it that way because it’s so much better and easier this way. I’m a better person and I thank God for that and I pray every day and I’m big on trying to stay positive.
BMW: Speaking of being positive, what was that meeting with Ciara and Future’s sister and daughter’s mother about?
BM: It wasn’t even planned like that. It just happened. Sometimes it’s the best way for things to happen. We had a good time. I felt like it was genuine. It wasn’t planned and he wasn’t in the room with us when we were taking photos. I’m looking forward to more family events and everybody getting along.
There was no conversation had. You know how you can just say something without having to say it. Everybody spoke and as we traveled from place to place, everybody warmed up. Everything just happened naturally.
BMW: Do you still think Ciara should prepare for Future to take stage left after their baby is born?
BM: I mean now, I can’t say because I know people grow. If he’s happy, I wish nothing but good luck and I wouldn’t wish anything negative on him or her or their relationship.
*With the announcement of another pregnancy, fans are a little worried about the risk Halle Berry’s taking.
Already in her mid 40s, the actress joins the world of older-pregnant women. According to CNN, statistics show that the number of pregnancies for women in other age groups is at a historical low, while for women in their late 30s and 40s is on the rise.
However, the risk is still the same. By 40, a woman’s reproductive chance is less than 5% per cycle, so a natural pregnancy is rare. And pregnant women in their 40s face increased risks for several health issues, including gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, breast cancer and miscarriages.
However, Dr. Petra M. Casey, associate professor and gynecology at the Mayo Clinic, cautions that these stats are variously true from patient to patient.
“Underlying health is a huge factor in the outcome of pregnancy,” she said.
“Some women are incredibly healthy at 40; some are sick at 20,” she said. “That all makes a huge difference in the challenges they may face in being pregnant.”
Halle appears to be quite healthy and in shape, but aging eggs is something that even a healthy person can’t deny.
“In terms of risk with women who are a little bit older and the potential genetic problems the baby may have, we pay closer attention to that for sure,” said Dr. George Macones, chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Washington University in St. Louis. “If someone is healthy, though, and doesn’t have medical problems other than the genetic issues, there shouldn’t be a lot to worry about.”
He added that his oldest patient was 54, a woman who was fit, active and healthy. He said she had a great pregnancy and healthy birth.

In an interview with theYBF, Brittni Mealy (pictured) says he’s a deadbeat and basically doesn’t respect women.
She told the site that as soon as he got signed, he started acting brand new and dropped her and went on to the next.
But before their relationship finally ended, he left a trail of stank.
According to Brittni, he apparently cursed out her mother.
The two met at an Atlanta club where she was an exotic dancer in 2009 (a terrible backdrop to an even more tragic story). They became inseparable friends and eventually developed a relationship. They got a place together and eventually got pregnant.
“Of course it started off perfect, we spent everyday together,” she said. “Whatever I wanted he gave me, it was almost too good to be true! He swept me off my feet, he was my world and I was his. He made me smile (even on the inside), we were best friends! I thought it would never end.”
But with his success came the cheating and problems.
Eventually their worlds collided and the relationship was over.
Now he’s out there, doing his thing and dating Ciara. Brittni says she’s not jealous, but just wants him to step up and be a good father.

The network is preparing a new show called “All My Babies’ Mamas.”
The series, created by Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto, will capture the ups, downs, headaches and joys of a so-called blended family.
In other words, it’s about the complicated life of one man with many women and lots of kids.
We did some looking around and found out, according to Shadow and Act, that one man would be ATL rapper Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker who reportedly has 10 baby mamas and 11 kids!
Annnnnnd, he also has a new girlfriend who is the same age as his oldest daughter and younger than his oldest son!!
A hot azz mess, right?
Cori Abraham, Senior Vice President of Development at Oxygen Media, says, “‘All My Babies’ Mamas’ will be filled with outrageous and authentic over-the-top moments that our young, diverse female audience can tweet and gossip about.”
The information surrounding the series is minimal so we really don’t know what type of folk we’re talking about here, except dysfunctional.
In the meantime, there’s no word on an exact date when it will appear on television, but Deadline is reporting it’s set to air this coming Spring.
