ATL Blog: Kandi Buruss’ Former Fiance AJ Jewell To Be Exhumed!

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Picture 110

Why people won’t allow A.J. to rest in peace is beyond me. Just days after prosecutors deemed AJ’s unforunate death in fact a homicide, it appears that his family isn’t happy with the news and are now requesting for his body to exhumed for a second autopsy.

Per TMZ:

The first autopsy showed Jewell — the former fiance of a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member — died after a fistfight last month due to complications related to sickle cell.

Jewell’s family isn’t satisfied with this explanation — even though his death was still ruled a homicide — and now the Fulton County District Attorney has “tentatively” agreed to let his body be exhumed so the second autopsy can happen.

This is turning into a bad episode of Law & Order. Let the man lay in peace.

ATL Blog: Rumor Has It…

Saturday, October 24th, 2009


I’ve stayed away from this AJ Jewell story because it seems like one big ole’ mess.

Plus, my “Law & Order” eye already saw that due to Kandi Burruss ‘ ex-fiance’s unknown medical condition of sickle-cell anemia, the attacker Frederick Richardson couldn’t possibly charged with murder.

Any decent defense attorney worth their ow salt could’ve gotten this charge[s] thrown out.

Well, it looks like it’s coming true.

I’m hearing things.. but lets wait till its official.

ATL Blog: AJ Jewell Died From Sickle Cell, Murder Charges Loom In The Balance!

Friday, October 16th, 2009


I have been trying to keep a safe distance from this AJ Jewell beat down story. Personally, I don’t like to report on tradegdy. In my mind my jabs I take at celebrities is in good fun to a certain degree. But it looks like there’s more to this story.

And for that we turn to The Entertainment Rundown:

Dr. Kelly Rose says preliminary autopsy results lead her to believe A.J. suffered from Sickle Cell, a disease which inhibits oxygen flow to tissues in the body.

She says it is most likely that he was worked up from the fight and because of the Sickle Cell it’s probable that he couldn’t replenish the oxygen he lost during the fight which could have fatal consequences.

The coroner says that a final report is forthcoming and will state the official cause of death and all contributing factors.

This could be good news for alleged killer Fredrick Ricardson. Any good defense attorney worth their own salt can argue that AJ’s precondition can’t be murder.

ATL Blog: Kandi Buruss Speaks On The Loss Of Family & Former Fiance

Monday, October 5th, 2009


Kandi Burruss is opening up about her recent tragic loss of her former fiance, Ashley Jewell. The Real Housewife of Atlanta star has been the center of attention since word broke late Friday night that AJ was brutally beaten at Atlanta’s gentleman’s club Body Tap.

And while everyone has their speculation on the unfortunate turn of events, Kandi wishes she had more time.

In an exclusive blog posted on, Kandi posted the following:

There was so much that he wanted to do. When I spoke to him yesterday I never thought that it would be for the last TIME! A.J had a great spirit and he was a good man. He was a father of six kids but had other children that he raised and loved like his own, including mine. So AJ was a father to many. It truly bothered him the way he has been portrayed in the media and actually it has bothered me too. AJ was NOT a “Scrub” like so many people like to blog and say. He had his own when we got together. He did not need me for financial gain, nor did he use me to gain some type of celebrity. When we got together we had no clue that we would be on t.v.. In all actuality, A.J hated and was uncomfortable with being on camera. He also hated that we made the decision to be on the show. Off camera A.J was very charismatic and a friend to many. He believed in God and always genuinely tried to do the right thing.

He is gonna be missed by so many. Especially by his children, the biological ones & the ones he just claimed. When I told my daughter Riley she just cried all morning. I didn’t know what to do or to say to make her feel better. I started wondering how his other kids were handling it. That’s one reason why I feel like he was just taken too soon. Now they have no father. That breaks me down inside. They needed more TIME. [Read More]

My prayers are with Kandi, her friends and family.

Mood: Somber


Last night broke the story about the unfortunate and devastating passing of Ashley “AJ” Jewell.

Well today there’s great news as police have made a break in the case which have lead to an arrest.

Per the AJC:

Atlanta homicide detectives have arrested Fredrick Richardson and charged  him with voluntary manslaughter in the beating death of the former fiancé of the newest member of the reality television show The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Richardson was also hospitalized due to injuries sustained in the fight and is at Grady Memorial Hospital, but will be jailed once released by medical staff.

Atlanta police spokesman Officer James Polite said detectives were still “trying to figure out [what happened]. We had a pretty good number of witnesses that are being cooperative.”

But the cause of the fight was still not known Saturday. [Source]

Well at least SOMEBODY stepped up and pointed the authorities in the right direction. A senseless killing indeed. But at least they got his ass!

Pic Spotted @ Atlpics

A dark cloud is hovering over the city of Atlanta tonight.

Before I start with this devastating news, I would like to state for the record that I have confirmed the unfortunate news that “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, Kandi Burruss’ former fiance AJ Jewell has passed away.

While I don’t know all the details just yet, I have been able to confirm that Jewell was killed this evening during an incident that occurred at Atlanta gentleman’s club Body Tap.

Witnesses state that an altercation of some kind occurred between AJ and unidentified patrons, that resulted in Jewell being fatally injured.

My heart goes out to the Jewell and Buruss family, especially Kandi whom is said to be torn up over the sudden passing of her uncle. AJ leaves behind six beautiful children.

I find this video to be an appropriate tribute to a father, a son, a businessman and a brutha. My prayers go out to all families, friends and associates who has been affected by this tragedy.
