I know, I know; what on earth could Shaquille O’Neal have possibly been buying to tally up a $70,000 bill at Walmart, of all places?

And then there were two—and almost one, until Patti LaDanielle, aka Danielle Young, got her act together. That's right; I almost had to Mathew Knowles her from the group after an off-air argument that we hashed out on-air.
