    i just heard hot 97 dj mister cee is confirming the story about transgender toni newman in hip hop weekly now as fact and ll cool j and eddie murphy mess around as well and others in hip hop and rap do as well. looks like the tee is about to be spilled and hit the fan all the way live. he said he knew toni newman over a decade ago and the story is true about him and the others.

    well damn
    there you go

    I REALLY DON’T THINK THAT IT IS GOOD THING TO BE SPREADING ONES BUSINESS. BUT WHEN U HAVE A FAMILY AT HOME AND A WIFE OR GIRL FRIEND THAT U HAVE TO COME TO LIKE EVERY THING IS GOOD THEN U DESERVE WHAT EVER U GET BECAUSE THAT PERSON HAS NO IDEA WHATS GOING ON. NOW IF THATS WHAT U LIKE THEN OK WHAT EVER MAKES U HAPPY BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING AROUND WITH SOMEONE ELSES LIFE BECAUSE THATS WHATS REALLY GOING ON THEN I DON’T AGREE.

    hello diamond saw your video clip very interesting and some points i agree with you on. this is toni newman the transgender who wrote I Rise-The Transformation of Toni Newman. The internet is spreading like fire but a lot of stuff not on point. I am going to clear it up with you for the transgender sisters.
    1) my book mentions no celebrities or outs anybody within my book. the book talks about what a black transgender goes through in america and how we are treated by the rich as well as the poor.
    2) the national enquirer paid me not one dime. i went to enquirer cause they heard about the book and asked me who were some of the people from my nyc street prostitution days. I said yes to eddie murphy but i never had sex with eddie murphy personally and i said 1 time encounter with ll cool j. They were going to run information about the book and how we transform through female hormones and life as black transgenders. They said we got to polygraph you and all they asked was about LL Cool J and after i took polygraph i had contract. Joseph Paleolla, ex us secret service agent called sarah cordes of national enquirer and said it is a go concerning the polygraph. i gave sarah cordes of national enquirer all my information such as hormone regiment, pics, background and etc. It was not until the very day we were told the article was suppose to run we heard they were talking to ll cool j and article not running. After 5 days no article and sarah released me from the contract which was 3 week exclusive contract with national enquirer. I will be glad to send you the actual contract that is all over the internet.
    3) the reason i do the radio interviews yes is to make everybody aware of the book but to let these people know who we are. Nobody seems to know the black or latin transgenders and how we exist. Everybody says they nobody but their husbands, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends, boyfriends, and associates run over in the dark to see us and have sex with us some generous and some not so generous. My point is come out of the darkness transgender ladies.
    4) All i am saying is you dont have to sell if you dont want to sell. Educate your mind, find a trade of something you enjoy and go for it. Chapter 10 says pray and stay strong transgender ladies.
    5) I agree with you about the post op surgery as well. I have spoken to the best doctors in the world and researched this thing to death. Until they can do better I cant risk my health or happiness on the surgery. MOST NOT ALL of the minority sisters i know who got the post op surgery it did not work out well for them. I wish it was a better surgery but it is not.
    6) If you have any questions for me you can email me at tonidnewman@aol.com.
    I liked your clip and your honesty and putting it out there. I wish you well in school and hope all your dreams come true. Several transgenders emailed me to watch your clip and i am glad i did.

    God bless you and all your followers and listeners. And dont forget to go to Amazon.com and buy the book through kindle.

      Thank you for watching and clearing some things up…It sound to melike your intentions of the book is being cloud by the mess…but that is a great thing for sales so oh well…I feel from how you responded that your goal in the book is the same goal that i have for my Youtube channel. Before i became partner with Google, my videos were all about sharing the Black trans experience. We dont start like our white counterparts. We start younger or in a financial environment that is not advantageous for our decision to transition. So i total understand the motivation you describe behind your book. I dont know where you live currently but if your ever in the Houston area…let me know so I can interview you from the trans standpoint and not the messy media angle….I think that will give you a change to express exactly the book intended yourself…I think you would be a perfect candidate for my “One Story” series. Here is a link to my first one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UFg87eKhIs Check it out. Let me know what you think. Thanks for checking me out and responding.

    yes i read the book and saw her on online show and says come out of the darkness into the light. we deserve respect just like anybody else the gays the lesbians. she said how many black transgenders you see at your banks your schools your businesses
    hardly none if any. they just as smart as anybody else and come out of the darkness into the light. i am going back to get my ged and do better. I am tired of whoring and most of my ts friends are whores too. We do it cause it is easy and the money is good and we can be at home and do our thing. We cant whore forever and the first thing i heard from my ts mother was to go make those coins. My sister toni newman says if you wanna sell and do that fine but lets have other options. She had none and neither did i we deserve an option.

    I RISE-THE TRANSFORMATION OF TONI NEWMAN ON AMAZON.COM NOW BUT I GOT ON AMAZON KINDLE.

    IT WAS ON BABY AND DID NOT OUT ONE PERSON.

    I AM TRANSGENDER BLACK AND I ALSO LIVE IN AMERICA.

    THESE NIGGAS PAY YOU AND TREAT YOU LIKE A QUEEN FOR A HOUR OR TWO AND BOUNCE AND GO HOME TO WIFE, GF OR BABY MAMA. I BEEN WITH YANKEES, KNICKS, ACTORS AND ESPECIALLY RAP AND HIP HOP PEOPLE.
    THEY SO SWEET WHEN THEY COME THROUGH WITH THE WEED AND DRINK AND CASH AND SAY WE FRIENDS. SEE THESE NIGGAS AT SUPERMARKET AND OUT THEY LAUGH WITH THEY FRIENDS AT YOU AND ACT LIKE THEY DONT EVEN KNOW YOU. AND THEN CALL YOU LATER THAT NIGHT AND WANT TO SNEAK THROUGH.

    HER POINT WAS NOT TO OUT BUT LET YOU KNOW THESE NIGGAS FAKE, THEY LIARS, THEY BULLSHITTERS, THEY HIPPOCRITES. DONT KNOCK ME IN DAY TIME FOR BEING TRANSGENDER AND THEN SUCK MY DICK AT NIGHT AT MY HOUSE. THAT IS TOTALLY FUCKED UP.

    I HAVE HEARD ABOUT LL COOL J FOR YEARS AND YEARS.
    I SEEN EDDIE WITH A TS FRIEND OF MINE WITH MY OWN EYES.
    AND YES I TOO SUCKED DJ MISTER CEE OFF
    TO BE HONEST WHAT TS HAS NOT SUCKED MISTER CEE.
    HE COULD CALL FROM AD AND AVOID THAT CAR SHIT BUT THAT IS HIS THRILL AND HE GOT BUSTED FOR IT.

    IF I SEE A GUY OUT AND HE SPEAKS TO ME LIKE A PERSON AND WE EXCHANGE HELLOS I AM GOOD
    BUT A NIGGA THAT ACT LIKE YOU INVISIBLE AND CANT SEE YOU HELL NO.

    HIPPOCRITES AND LIARS NO MATTER WHO THEY GIVE MONEY TOO SHOULD BE EXPOSED.

    IF I AM BEING REAL WHY CANT YOU BE REAL

    LETS KEEP IT ON THE REAL

    HER BOOK TALKS ABOUT WHAT WE GOTTA DO TO MAKE IT BABY. HARD FOR A BITCH TO BE A BLACK TRANSGENDER IN AMERICA.

    I SHOULD KNOW I AM 28 AND AFTER READING HER BOOK I AM GOING BACK AND GET MY GED. I LEFT HOME AT 17 SINCE MY MOM SAID NO NIGGA GONNA WORE A WIG IN MY HOUSE. GET THE FUCK OUT. I DID AND FOR 11 YEARS DOING ME EVERY DAY AND ALL DAY.

    I READ TONI NEWMAN’S BOOK AND SHED SAY EDUCATE YOUR MIND WHILE YOU CHANGE THE BODY. I AM GOING TO DO THAT AND STOP BEING ASHAMED.

    Hey Diamond,

    I love your down to earth style and direct approach to various issues. I do agree with you regarding the girls and all of these tell alls. I feel like this, all women be they trans or not, if they’re a working girl, a mistress or whatever to a man of means, he’s probably providing quite nicely for you and part of the deal is to be discreet and keep your mouth shut. You don’t go spilling folks dirt who are paying you lovely coins. Men keep side pieces in the closet and women do to. It’s not necessarily a matter of “I don’t give a fuck about this person and I’m exploiting them”, it is what it is. You know the deal. Girls aren’t running and telling the story about the guy who came to see them who works at the gas station and I’m sure he’s not paying as well as the celebs, or at least some of them. So why put them on blast. And another thing, it seems the girls writing these books are exploiting themselves as if to say, this is what I am, this person was with me and it’s a scandal because I’m a scandal and anyone wanting to be with me romantically or otherwise is fodder for the National Enquirer. Really, these girls are already doing the damage themselves by implying that not only is it wrong for someone to be with them or find them attractive, but let’s tell the world about it.

    Now I’m all for outing hypocrites who talk out of the side of their neck, claiming to be against this, that and the other, when not only are they into it; they often pay well and tip even better. But in the instance of certain celebrities who I’m sure provide pretty cute for their side chicks, side boys or whoever they keep just for themselves, all of this kissing and telling really isn’t cute.
