'SPRING' FORWARD: THE TV SHOWS YOU NEED TO BE WATCHING THIS '22 SEASON!

‘Put A Ring On It’ EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK: Does Not Being Friends With Other Men Out Of Respect For Your Relationship Make You A Weak Woman?!

It’s the age old debate over whether men and women can be strictly friends…but now a woman is weak if she doesn’t even want to attempt friendship with a man outside of her own relationship?!  That’s a new one.  We’ve got an exclusive sneak peek of at ish going left on tonight’s episode of "Put A RIng On It" inside.

OWN’s hit show "Put A Ring On It" is all about couples deciding if they’re ready for that next step in their relationship, or if they need to call it quits NOW. 

There’s just one twist; they date other people while working through their relationship issues. Apparently, everybody isn’t here for the "dating other men" portion of the experiment, though.

 

On tonight’s episode, Charlana says that Chris, who she was paired up with for a date, has ulterior motives.  While she’s explaining why she no longer wants to welcome that energy into her space and possibly ruin what she and her man Otis have, Otis said some wild ish, insinuating that could be seen as "a weak woman".

Charlana goes on to explain it’s simply about respecting herself and her relationship, especially because women "know how to be friends with men", and men don’t know how to simply be friends with women, according to her.  Their co-star Alfonzo actually ends up proving her point.

So, does it make a person (who is attracted to the opposite sex) weak if they don’t even want to attempt friendships with the opposite sex outside of their relationship?

"Put A Ring On It" airs each Friday at 9 PM EST | 8 PM CST.  You can also catch up on the Watch OWN app!

WATCH: The Toxicity Tristan Thompson Just Spewed About Khloé Kardashian Never Leaving Him Is Cringey, Yet Seemingly Accurate

After everything Tristan Thompson has put Khloé Kardashian through, one thing he seemingly knows for sure is that she’s not going anyway. Watch a cringey clip of the former couple talking about their rollercoaster relationship inside…

 

In a public apology to Khloé Kardashian after it was confirmed he fathered a child while they were very much together, Tristan Thompson said his actions don’t always reflect how he truly feels about the second mother of his second child. Which he proved to be true by impregnating another woman while he was in a relationship with Khloe AFTER several public cheating scandals since the start of their relationship in 2016.

Yet, one thing he knows to be true is that Khloe isn’t going anywhere. The Internet is constantly rooting for Khloe to pay Tristan dust and to move on with her life with their daughter, True Thompson. Yet, he seems to have a strong hold on her.

In 2021, the on-again, off-again couple went through several makeups to breakups, however, December 2021 was when rumors began that he fathered a third child with a woman named Maralee Nichols. That’s when they last broke up, but before then, Khloe & Tristan had secretly got back together and were filming their reconciliation for the show.

On an episode of “The Kardashians,” the Chicago Bulls player and the reality star have a conversation about relationships in the family and it was quite cringey to watch. Although, it really shouldn’t be because he didn’t say anything that’s far from the truth:

 

#TheKardashians   #Kardashians   #Kardashiansonhulu   s1e5

Khloe:
Scott is never leaving, Kanye is never leaving, looks like you are never leaving

Tristan:
More like, you are never leaving me

”Scott [Disick] is never leaving. Kanye [West] is never leaving. Looks like you’re never leaving,” Khloe said to Tristan.

”More like you’re never leaving me,” he responded.

And his assumption is right. The 31-year-old NBA star has publicly cheated on Khloe umpteenth times (with VIDEO receipts) and yet, she decided to take him back. During one of their conversations, they talk about him cheating on her while she was nine months pregnant. Peep the clip below:

DAYTIME DIVAS: Wendy Williams Wants Sit Down With Sherri Shepherd After Fat Joe Interview Drama, Demands $100M For Podcast Deal

Wendy Williams is ready to make her comeback. But first, she wants to chop it up with her replacement Sherri Shepherd after she responded to Wendy’s Fat Joe interview where she said she would not be watching her follow-up show. They should probably have a meeting since the “Wendy” staff wants the veteran daytime talk show host to come back for the season finale.

 

Also, Wendy is looking to make a $100 million move to the podcast world. Deets inside…

 

Wendy Williams would like to have a sit down with Sherri Shepherd to discuss some things following some social media drama that sparked after Wendy did an interview with Fat Joe.

“I have tons of support around me, and I am working on projects,” Wendy told Page Six. ”I would love the chance to actually speak with Sherri and sit down and meet.”

LaShawn Thomas, Wendy’s attorney, added the 57-year-old host has “no ill will” towards Sherri.

“Wendy requesting to have a sit-down with Sherri to have a meeting of the minds is the perfect solution as she has no ill will or intent,” LaShawn said. “Wendy is preparing to get her show back in motion.”

Which show? That has yet to be determined. As you know, Sherri permanently replaced Wendy after her long-running daytime talk show was canceled due to Wendy’s physical and mental health struggles. After guest hosting, Sherri landed her own self-titled show (with the same “Wendy” staff) that’s set to premiere this fall.

While chopping it up with Joe on IG Live, Wendy said she likes Sherri, but she will not be watching her show.

“I like her, but I won’t be watching her because I know what she’s going to be doing and that’s really not my thing,” Wendy said. “Anyway, but I love being on my own show and I love that people love to watch it all the time.”

During the interview, Wendy also talked about only having “$2” to her name and how she’s maintaining despite her not being able to access any of her money:

A post shared by FAT JOE (@fatjoe)

Sherri Shepherd said she watched Wendy’s interview with Fat Joe in an IG Live. And some folks feel she was being very shady towards the veteran talk show host.

“I did hear Wendy say she will not watch me on the new show. And that’s OK,” she said during an IG Live. “You know, I understand.”

“I’m truly concerned about her because I don’t feel there’s anybody over there protecting her, and it’s really hard when there’s no protection around you, and you just have people hanging on,” the former “The View” co-host said.

“She’s by herself. It’s not like she’s got her husband Kevin [Hunter Sr.],” she said. “She’s by herself. The only person that she has that’s taking care of her is her 21-year-old son Kevin Jr., and he’s 21. She’s not well. It’s just a lot going on in Wendy’s life,” she said.

Wendy’s rep – Shawn Zanotti – popped back at Sherri’s response:

“I personally feel that it is difficult to wish a person well, which Sherri did, while attempting to health-shame them at the same time, especially since Wendy was the one who created multiple platforms that gave Sherri several opportunities,” Shawn told Page Six in a statement. “Wendy is an icon and should be respected as such.”

Maybe they should have that sit down to has everything out since some of the “Wendy” staffers want the veteran host to at least return for the show’s season finale.

Page Six reports:

“There’s talk [of how to say goodbye] and a lot of people on staff feel like there should be a tribute to [Wendy] or some kind of farewell,” an insider revealed to Page Six. But, at the end of the day, “It’s her show and she’s not there for it,” they added.

The insider insists that staffers are angling for her to return for one last show because “they have all these fond memories.”

“People want her to come back… A lot of people — especially the mid and low-level producers — signed up for the job because of Wendy. It feels like it’s just going to end [without her]. It’s weird,” they said.

Meanwhile, another source told us that staffers are still traumatized over Williams’ allegedly erratic behavior in recent years.

“There have been days where people thought they wouldn’t have a job because she wouldn’t show up to work, so this idea that there’s some conundrum? No,” they said.

As for Wendy’s “comeback,” word on the curb is that she’s looking to make a splash in the podcast world. However, she wants big bucks to do so.

Sources told The Sun Wendy has received countless offers for a podcast ever since she stopped appearing on “The Wendy Williams Show” due to her ongoing personal issues.

They said Wendy would like the podcast to stream either on iHeart Radio or Spotify and since she’s a solid radio veteran, she believes she’s worth a big bag – like Joe Rogan, who signed a $100 million podcast contract with Spotify.

“She sees Joe Rogan has a $100million podcast deal, and now she wants that kind of money,” the source said.

Hmm…Wendy will likely have to prove she’s healthy and/or consistent enough to complete a daily or weekly show before they drop those millions.

Rapper Rod Wave Arrested For Battery, Allegedly Choked Out His Ex-Girlfriend While Their Children Were In The Home

Rapper Rod Wave was arrested and charged with a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation after he allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend to the point where she couldn’t breathe. In the police report, it said their children (twin daughters) were inside the home when it happened. Lord. Details inside…

WARNING! This post may be triggering to domestic violence survivors.

Florida rapper Rod Wave was reportedly arrested last month for allegedly choking his ex-girlfriend/mother of his children to the point she couldn’t breathe while their two children were in the house.

According to The Tampa Bay Times, the arrest warrant for rapper Rod Wave was just made public for the first time. According to the police report, the alleged choking incident happened on April 24th.

The St. Petersburg rapper (real name Rodarius Marcell Green) now faces a felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation after officers responded to several 9-1-1 calls made by an unidentified woman. She accused the 23-year-old rapper of entering her home and getting aggressive with her while their two children were in their room.

The woman’s name has been redacted in the court documents, however, she told deputies that she dated Rod Wave for about four years and they have two children together. Rod Wave is the father of twin daughters and their mother is his ex, Kelsey (aka Dee). Below is a picture of Rod and his daughter’s mother when she was pregnant with their twin daughters:

The woman told Osceola deputies Rod entered her home and then her bedroom while she was sleeping. According to the arrest affidavit, he accused her of talking to other men before choking her until she couldn’t breathe. The children were reportedly in their own bedroom(s) when the incident occurred.

The “Rags2Riches” rapper reportedly left the home and then came back a second time to accuse the woman of taking his cellphone. She said he kicked storage shelves near the front door and grabbed two photos off the wall, throwing them on the front porch and sidewalk before he drove off.

Although she suffered minor injuries (a scratch “near the left center of her neck"), she refused medical assistance. After the police took photos of her injuries, police searched the area for Rod Wave, but were unable to locate him.

A week later, cops arrested Rod Wave during a traffic stop in St. Petersburg. He was reportedly released from the Pinellas County Jail on $5,000 bail on May 3rd.

Rod maintained his innocence, pleading not guilty to the felony charge of domestic battery by strangulation. No word on the date of his next court hearing.

We pray she stays safe…

NFL Baller Richard Sherman’s Alleged Mistress Blasts Him For Being A Deadbeat To Their Baby Boy & A Serial Cheater, Shares Receipts

Whew….the mess.  NFL baller Richard Sherman is once again being accused of cheating on his wife, this time with confirmation from the original alleged mistress….who is now showing off their BABY BOY she just had and whom she says Richard refuses to claim.  All of the receipts inside.

Last September, the rumor mill starting spinning when a friend of IG model Reina Westberg posted claims that Richard Sherman, who has been married to wife Ashley Sherman for four years, was cheating with Reina.  She had some wonky proof that she ended up seemingly backtracking on, and Reina never confirmed anything herself.  But ish has changed, apparently.

Reina herself (above) just hopped on Instagram to not only reveal her baby boy, West Sherman Westberg, who she claims is Richard’s, but she’s accusing Richard of being a serial cheater, a deadbeat and not claiming his own son, despite coming over daily and constantly sending "I love you" & "I miss you" messages to her.  Reina  says he constantly acts like he wants to be with her while saying he can’t because "things are hard right now."  And she also says he hasn’t paid a dime for anything dealing with baby West, despite him knowing about him since the day Reina found out she was pregnant.

Swipe through below for all of her receipts, including a video Richard allegedly sent to her blowing kisses and saying "I miss you."

There’s more.  Richard and Ashley have been together for 11 years, but Reina’s friend has been posting that Richard and Reina were a thing before he actually married Ashley four years ago.

Richard and Ashley have also had an extremely tumultuous past year.  Last July, Richard was arrested after trying to violently break into Ashley’s parents house where she was staying with their two children.  After Ashley left the house to drive away, according to the 9-1-1 call, Richard chased her down in his car and attempted to block her car in while she was driving and possibly tried running her off the road.  Richard was also said to be drunk and suicidal.

He apologized after his arrest, Ashley stayed, and the Tampa Bay Buccs hired then-free agent Richard just two months later.

Richard posted a Happy Anniversary message for Ashley less than two months ago in March. And they took a family vacation about a week prior with the kids:

Jesse Williams’ Nude Leak Fall Out: The Theater Is Pissed, Infrared Systems Installed

The Jesse Williams nude leak scandal has a NYC Broadway theater pissed! And they are putting new systems in place to make sure it never happens again. Details inside….

 

Social media was on fire when Jesse William’s nudes leaked. The actor served up full frontal nudity during a scene in his Tony nominated Broadway play “Take Me Out,” and let’s just say – NO ONE is complaining, okay?

After the clip put a chokehold on Twitter, the "Grey’s Anatomy" star sort of brushed it off, saying it’s “just a body.” However, the NYC theater is pissed and they aren’t wasting any time to ensure it never happens again.

The Helen Hayes Theater has installed a new infrared camera system facing the audience so that the venue’s security team can monitor the entire audience and catch anyone if they tried to use a recording device during the show.

The New York Times reported that the detection system was installed Wednesday, and violators may be asked to leave the theater or delete any surreptitious footage. 

Peter Dean, director of production for Second Stage, said the technology will allow them to monitor the crowd and be able to detect a phone almost immediately.

”This will allow us to focus on an audience member who looks like they’re doing something suspicious, and assess whether they’re just going through a purse to get a breath mint or pulling out a phone," Dean said.

It’s unclear if the person who snuck the video managed to sneak a phone into the show or if they were able to get it out of the locked case somehow. Phones are confiscated before the show in an effort to keep clips from being leaked online.

Second Stage Theater, who produced the show, released a statement condemning the leaked footage:

"Second Stage Theater has worked to ensure the privacy of the Take Me Out company by creating a phone-free space with locked phone cases at all performances," the company said. "We are appalled that this policy has been violated and unauthorized footage of our acting company has been posted. It is deeply unfortunate that one audience member chose to disrespect the production, their fellow audience members, and, most importantly, the cast in this manner."

“Taking naked pictures of anyone without their consent is highly objectionable and can have severe legal consequences,” Second Stage continued. “Posting it on the internet is a gross and unacceptable violation of trust between the actor and audience forged in the theater community.”

The nude footage leaked the same day Jesse was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in the show.

”Take Me Out” tells the story of a Major League Baseball player (played by Jesse) who comes out as gay. It’ll run at the Helen Hayes Theater through June 11th, so respect the “no phone policy” if you decide to pay Jesse a visit in-person.

BORN AGAIN: Blac Chyna Gets Baptized & Accepts Christ Days After Her Friend Speaks Out About Alleged Beat Down Chy Gave Her

News of the baptism comes after her “friend” Sequoya King shared details about what led up to Chyna kicking her in the stomach. Watch Chyna’s water baptism, plus what Sequoya said about the assault inside….

Blac Chyna is embarking on a new chapter in her life following all of the courtroom & reality drama.

The Lashed Boutique owner is now “born again” after she decided to accept Christ as her personal savior and got baptized yesterday on her birthday (May 11th). The 34-year-old model shared a video of her pool baptism on her Instagram account after dedicating her life to Christ.

"Born again on my Birthday 5/11/22 #newbeginnings,” she captioned the video of herself being submerged into a swimming pool in the backyard ceremony.

Tokyo Toni – Chyna’s mother – was there to witness the special moment:

”Having your mother around brings great change. Being humble is only one lesson learned being a part of God is all you need to know #tokyotoni,” she captioned on one of her several pages.

Chyna’s mom has been doing the most lately. After the trial, she started a GoFundMe page to try to raise $400,000 for her daughter’s appeal. She also made claims that she and Chyna are working on a talk show together that will air on Tokyo’s own network. 

It seems Chyna is looking to embrace a new direction in her life after losing her multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit she filed against the Kardashian-Jenners. After the courtroom “L,” it seems Chyna may have been on edge because a woman filed a police report claiming the mom-of-two kicked her in the stomach.

The alleged victim’s name is Sequoya King and she’s speaking out for the first time following a physical fight at a bar with Chyna last week.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Sequoya shared details about what led up to her and Chyna’s explosive argument, which resulted in her allegedly being assaulted. Sequoya – who has been friends with Chyna for the last year or so – stepped out to party with Chyna and their mutual friend early Friday morning (May 6th).

Sequoya joined Chyna, their mutual friend and others in Los Angeles to party the night away. After hitting up The District, they jetted to an after hours spot. The vibes were off when she first arrived, but Sequoya said she dealt with it on the strength of their mutual friend and that they all had been drinking. She said Chy would say something slick/rude and then immediately apologize right after.

When The District closed, they decided to hit up an after hours spot, so they got in their cars to head there. Sequoya said when they arrived, Chyna was upset with her because they were “supposed to stay together” and she was apparently driving too fast for Chyna.

Once they arrived to the after hours spot, Chyna was telling Sequoya she can’t come inside. Sequoya eventually got in where she and Chyna had a discussion in the bathroom. Chyna revealed she gets anxiety when people speed and that’s why she came off at her that way. After their talk, their “beef” was squashed….or so she thought.

When it was time to leave the establishment at 5:30AM, Chyna began to get paranoid because she saw people with their phones out and she believed they were recording her. Sequoya said she had her phone out at the time, but she was NOT recording Chyna. When Chyna noticed she had her phone out, she allegedly started yelling at her and ended up shattering her cellphone after throwing it to the ground.

At this point, they start arguing, so the after hours spot is now putting them out of the building.

”You’re being a really nasty person to me right now. And that’s why you did not win your lawsuit. Because you’re a very nasty person,” Sequoya said she told Chyna. That’s when all hell broke loose.

”When she heard that, she charged towards me. She kicks me right in my stomach. I stumbled back and I got knocked down,” she detailed.

Now, there’s a small group of clubgoers watching them argue before the women were pulled away from one another. After being separated, Sequoya hopped in her car and left the scene. Videos of the aftermath hit the internet.

The woman filed a police report the next day after going to the hospital to get checked out. Doctors did x-rays where they found some internal bruising, but said that she would be okay. They gave her pain medication to help.  Now, the police are investigating Chyna for battery.

You can watch her interview below: 

The battery accusation came just days after Chyna lost her $140 million defamation suit against the Kardashian-Jenners. Despite not winning, jurors found that Chyna did not harm her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian. Chyna’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani, plans to file an appeal. By the way, a separate trial is reportedly set to begin soon to address allegations in the lawsuit against Rob Kardashian. He’s the only defendant in that case.

Chyna has A LOT of ish going on right now. Sis should consider taking a serious break from everyone and everything to regroup.

‘Riverdale’ Star Vanessa Morgan’s Estranged MLB Husband Michael Kopech Expecting Baby & Stepdaddy-ing With New Girlfriend

Major League Baseball star Michael Kopech seemingly gets around! After filing for divorce from “Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan while she was pregnant, he’s now expecting a new baby with his new girlfriend. He also dated Brielle Biermann, Kim Zolciak’s daughter. The messiness inside…

Major League Baseball star Michael Kopech is a piece of work. The Chicago White Sox pitcher is currently awaiting the arrival of his second child with his new girlfriend not long after divorcing “Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan….while she was pregnant with his baby. Chile…

So a little backstory…

”Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan started dating MLB star Michael Kopech in July 2018, four months after it was reported he broke up with Brielle Biermann – daughter of ex-“RHOA” star Kim Zolciak-Biermann. She said he told her he wanted to “take a break” and that he wanted her to "wait" for him. It was a “hard no” for her, so they called it quits. 

A month after Vanessa and Michael announced they were an item, they got swept up into social media drama when Twitter users uncovered racist and homophobic tweets he posted in 2013 (that have since been deleted). If you didn’t know, Vanessa is half black as she was born to a Scottish mom and a Tanzanian dad.

“First of all I had no right saying what I said and I want to apologize for being stupid and an immature teenager,” he said about the tweets, one containing the “n-word.”

“I think maybe a misinterpretation (Thursday) is maybe I was apologizing for maybe being racist or homophobic in the past and I wasn’t apologizing for that, I was apologizing for what I said because I’ve never been racist or homophobic.”

Hmph.

By July 2019, Michael proposed to Vanessa and then six months later they tied the knot (January 2020). By July 2020, they were pregnant! Everything was seemingly good…until it wasn’t.

Days after Vanessa, 30, announced she was pregnant with a baby boy, Michael, 26, filed for DIVORCE! Sheesh. A week after the birth of their son River Kopech, Vanessa shared posts on her Instagram timeline and in her Stories, hinting that they may have reunited. 

No official word that they got back together.

Fast forward to now – Michael Kopech is expecting his second child with a new girlfriend.

The woman – IG user @morganeudy – announced last month she and Michael are expecting a baby soon. It will be their first child together, who will become the little sister or brother of Michael’s son River and the woman’s young daughter, Veda, from a previous relationship. 

She seems madly in love with him. Read the birthday tribute she posted to him just a few weeks ago:

Welp. She better hope history doesn’t repeat itself because his track record is looking real sketchy.

”I’m super against tradition,” she shared. "I definitely don’t need a white dress. My favorite look [from the shoot] was the pink African print. Honestly, whatever I wear on the wedding day will probably be African print. It might have a little white, so it looks like a wedding dress, but it’s definitely going to be colorful."

As she prepares to trek down the aisle, she has been collaborating with a stylist and revealed “Orange Is The New Black” newlywed Danielle Brooks is her muse.

”I’ve been pulling a lot of things on my Pinterest board to share with my stylist, but my biggest muse has been Danielle Brooks. She had two beautiful dresses—one created by Christian Siriano, who I’ve also worn before. When the time comes, I am definitely going to hit him up to create a custom look, maybe even African print," she explained.

That would be gorgeous.

In terms of hair, she’s leaning towards Senegalese twists or cornrows with a little tiara. "I want lots of jewelry in my hair. I also want beautiful eye makeup with very, very long butterfly eyelashes and a very bold lip."

As for where they’ll tie the knot – that hasn’t been determined just yet. However, the couple does not want to get married at a typical wedding venue. They would love to tie the knot at a private residence, much like the house they shot the magazine spread at in Malibu, where their guests will be able to spend the entire weekend. A view of the water is another wishlist item, but the only non-negotiable the duo has is the time of day: "I want to get married at golden hour," Gabby shared. “I just want it to be picturesque."

One major part of their nuptials will be the mixing of their cultures – Senegalese, American, and Jewish—throughout the entire celebration.

”Including my culture [in the wedding] is important to me for sure. I’ve been feeding him some Senegalese food in the last few years—especially in the pandemic," so a specialty menu is definitely on the table. Brandon’s background most certainly won’t be forgotten, either. "It will be a nice mix of African and Jewish touches," Gabby adds. "I want his background to absolutely be there because this is a partnership."

Gabby & Brandon have a special, unconventional relationship that many may not understand, but that’s how they like it. In the interview, they talked about how she ended up seeing her engagement ring in advance and how she also saw the entire proposal setup before he popped the question. They laugh about it all and it’s part of the reason why they don’t want their coupling to be “traditional.”

”It cannot be a traditional wedding," she said. Really, it can’t be. I don’t want anything done the ‘traditional’ way. Our relationship is very much on our terms and I want it to be fun, like a true party."

DaBaby EXPOSES DaniLeigh After Her Angie Martinez Interview, Says She Was Stalking His Other Baby’s Mother & Was With Him At A Hotel + MeMe Enters The Chat

DaBaby and his first baby mama MeMe are reacting to the candid interview DaniLeigh did with Power 105’s Angie Martinez where she talked about that infamous fight between herself and her daughter’s father that played out on Instagram Live.

 

Clearly, DaBaby wasn’t feeling what she had to say about it, so he reacted. And so did MeMe. Get it all inside….

While working on a set, rapper DaBaby caught wind of DaniLeigh’s interview with Power 105’s Angie Martinez in which the “Yellow Bone” artist opened up about the infamous IG Live fight between herself and her daughter’s father, which resulted in her being hit with two counts of simple assault.

In her first interview since giving birth to her daughter (named Velour), DaniLeigh talked about her “toxic” relationship with the North Carolina rapper where she alluded he cheated on her several times, said she was NOT his side chick, and shared what transpired that day DaBaby kicked her out of the house.

“It was toxic. We had our really good times. We were in love,” she said. “He had his little mess-ups and stuff, so we’d break up for a month and then get back together… We broke up a lot.”

Dani also released a new track titled “Dead To Me” where she talked about the “toxic energy” she felt during her relationship with DaBaby.

Hopping on IG Stories, the “SUGE” rapper shared some secrets about DaniLeigh in an effort to tell his side of the story.

“I was gone respond a different way, but I gathered myself and I decided to respond this way,” he said in a clip posted to his IG Stories. “First of all, I feel like you waited too late. I told you back in December you should capitalize off the situation. I feel like that’s a bad move. It’s a green move for your label to have you drop the interview the same time you dropping a new song. I feel like yall should have put that together better.”

The 30-year-old rapper said before he got into a scuffle with DaniLeigh’s brother at a Los Angeles bowling alley, she was with him “at the London” hotel for a whole week “getting busy,” alluding that they were having sex.

Not only that, he shared the reason he kicked DaniLeigh out of his home during their infamous fight was due to DaniLeigh “stalking” the mother of his oldest child, MeMe. He claims DaniLeigh has been affecting his relationships with his other children due to causing conflicts with their mothers.

Peep his response below:

As for MeMe, she called DaniLeigh out for throwing rocks and then playing victim.

”Side chick tried to turn main chick, while throwing rocks and hiding ya hand…" she wrote on her Instagram Stories. "An[d] now looking for sympathy from the world. FOH, my silence done saved a lot of face," she continued.

"Feel how y’all wanna feel but ain’t another person gone holla bout ‘holding Meme accountable.’ I be quiet but y’all still find some way to tear down my character," MeMe wrote.

MeMe said she has never been "bitter" or "mad" about anything. Meanwhile, the Internet attacked her for a year and she never tried to play the victim. 

"I sat my a** back and let everything unfold. Karma just a b*tch but we already knew that," she wrote. 

MeMe clarified the only reason she ever responded to the drama was due to a "h*e" coming for her first.  Bloop. 

Check out DaniLeigh’s full interview (where she also addressed the "Yellow Bone" controversy and apologized) below:

Chris Paul’s Mom Shares What Really Happened When ‘Inebriated’ Fan Violated Her Space & Got Ejected From Arena After Chris Tried To Put Paws On Him

Chris Paul’s mom, Robin Paul, is telling her side of what went down when she was harassed and physically contacted by a Dallas Mavericks fan during Game 4. The fan – who has been banned – claims he was just trying to get a “hug," however, Mama Paul believes he was drunk. More inside…

NEVER do you put your hands on someone that you don’t know and have not gotten prior permission to do so. Folks really have the game messed up out here!

On Sunday, Chris Paul’s family was harassed and physically contacted by a crazed Dallas Maverick fan in the American Airlines Center in Dallas. And we call him “crazed” because you have to be out of your mind to think it’s okay to touch someone you don’t know, let alone the mother of the Phoenix Suns point guard.

It’s Mother’s Day, so Chris Paul’s mother, Robin Paul, and his wife, Jada Crawley Paul, are front and center to watch Game 4 between the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks go down. During the game, a Dallas Maverick fan reportedly touched Chris Paul’s mother. There were also tweets that said Jada was even pushed at one point.

After the game, Chris Paul – who was awarded with the inaugural Kobe & GiGi Bryant WNBA Advocay Award – took to Twitter to air out his frustrations:

 

Wanna fine players for saying stuff to the fans but the fans can put they hands on our families….fuck that!!

— Chris Paul (@CP3) May 8, 2022

”Wanna fine players for saying stuff to the fans but the fans can put they hands on our families….f*ck that!!,” CP3 tweeted.

Soon after, a source confirmed to ESPN the NBA star’s mother “had hands put on her” and that Jada was also “pushed” right in front of the kids. “They felt very unsafe,” the source told the publication. 

Once Chris is notified about what happened, he starts going OFF (and rightfully so) as the fans were escorted out of the arena.

 

You can read Chris Paul’s lips here, clear as day, saying "he put his hands on my mom, he put his hands on my mom."

Paul tweeted just a few minutes ago, taking issue with Dallas fans putting their hands on his family. pic.twitter.com/9DA0ZPqAEA

— Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) May 9, 2022

 

While the fans appear to be minors, they are definitely old enough to KNOW BETTER. They almost saw a side of CP3 they’d never seen before.

After the Mavericks did their investigation, they concluded the fans were attempting to give “unwanted hugs” and banned them from the arena until 2023.

 

Statement from the Dallas Mavericks on the incident involving Chris Paul’s family and fans. Two fans, who gave unwanted hugs to Paul’s family, will be banned from American Airlines Center until 2023: pic.twitter.com/tDTVcD36uU

— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) May 9, 2022

 

“American Airlines Center and Dallas Mavericks security and executives have concluded the investigation in to the incident involving the Paul family. Two unruly fans attempted to give unwanted hugs and have conversations with members of the Paul family on the public concourse of American Airlines Center. AAC security responded immediately once notified by the family and the fans were swiftly ejected from the game. The fans involved in the incident will not be allowed to return to the arena until 2023.”

That’s NOT what Mama Paul is saying what happened.

During Monday’s episode of “Inside the NBA” following Sunday night’s game, basketball commentator Kenny Smith reached out to him and said that the zealous fan kept tapping her on the shoulder to say, “Happy Mother’s Day.” After asking him to stop several times and he didn’t, she concluded he was intoxicated.

No mention of Jada being pushed as a source previously revealed.

 

On TNT, Kenny Smith says that Chris Paul’s mother, Robin, reached out to explain what happened with the young Dallas fan. She said the fan was obviously inebriated and kept tapping her on the shoulder and wishing her happy Mother’s Day, even after she politely asked him to stop.

— Brad Townsend (@townbrad) May 10, 2022

 

It’s weird how the Mavericks seemingly tried to downplay the fact a fan REPEATEDLY touched someone without their consent.

 

the mavericks deemed this incident serious enough to invoke seven-month bans, and then downplayed what happened as "unwanted hugs"? https://t.co/dWC7hFbBDO

— tim cato (@tim_cato) May 9, 2022

So this could ultimately turn out to be a one-game ban for the rest of this season and then, what, 15 games at the start of the next regular season before the turn of the new year?

Calling it "unwanted hugs" doesn’t change the fact that it’s harassment. Why let them in again? https://t.co/5cimNOe9BA

— Kellan Olson (@KellanOlson) May 9, 2022

Sugarcoating harassment as unwanted hugs is fkn ridiculous https://t.co/dAbHQPladP

Seriously. If Chris got to that fan – things could have gone WAY left.

Jesse Williams’ EXPOSED Third Leg Has Everyone EXTRA THIRSTY & Wondering How To Cop Broadway Tix (Oh, He’s Not Single Either)

Someone snuck a video of Jesse Williams on Broadway and it’s the viral video that we didn’t know we needed. The (NSFW) clips of the naked actor in action, plus what he has to say about it all inside…

Whew, LAWD – Father in HEAVEN.

The Internet is collectively thirsting after actor Jesse Williams. And it’s not because he was nominated for a TONY Award yesterday. Although, we now know WHY he nabbed the nom – or at least partially.

Usually, Broadway is a NO phone zone. However, someone was sneaky enough to whip out their cellphone (or possibly another device) to record Jesse Williams butt ball naked onstage during a shower and kissing scene of the Broadway show “Take Me Out,” which is about a gay professional baseball player dealing with coming out to his teammates and in the press.

Full. Frontal. Nudity.

We can’t post the videos here (for obvious reason), but you can click HERE, HERE and HERE to see what Jesse is working with. And let’s just say, the man is blessed, OKAY?! WARNING – Do not click those links at work or around children. 

It just so happened the nude clips surfaced on social media on the same day Jesse was nominated for a Tony Award in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his role in “Take Me Out.” How fitting.

Folks are CUTTING UP on Twitter after viewing the clip:

And we can’t even blame them.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star – who’s currently involved in a custody battle with his ex-wife Aryn Drake-Lee – appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” last night and responded to the reactions.

"It’s a body, once you see it, you realize it’s whatever, it’s a body!,” he said. "I just have to make it not that big of a deal."


Midway through one of the games they played, Andy asked Jesse if he’s single and he said "No."  That’s interesting, since he and actress Taylour Paige were rumored to have broken up a while back.

When the internets said they see why his ex(es?) won’t leave him alone, we just had to pour a glass and nod in agreement chile.

So, who’s trying to go with Broadway? LOL!

WATCH: Young Thug ARRESTED At His ATL Mansion, Gunna Also Charged As 28 YSL Associates Face RICO Charges In 56-Count Indictment

Rappers Young Thug and Gunna are facing RICO charges in a 56-count indictment that includes 28 members and associates of Thugga’s YSL (Young Slime Life) camp. It all seemingly started in 2015 when Thugga allegedly rented a car that was used in a deadly drive-by shooting of a rival gang member, among other alleged crimes.

 

See Young Thug’s arrest and mugshot inside…

Rapper Young Thug was arrested Monday at his Atlanta home after he was named in a 56-count indictment that also includes rapper Gunna as well as members and associates of Thugga’s “Young Slime Life,” which prosecutors have labeled a criminal street gang that was formed in 2012. YSL is also the name of Young Thug’s record label.

The 30-year-old rapper (real name Jeffery Lamar Williams) was booked into the Fulton County Jail following his arrest after he was named as one of 28 people in a 56-count indictment. Thug specifically was hit with two charges, which includes violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, Act and participating in criminal street gang activity, according to court documents.  It’s important to note, the Feds have a 99% success rate in prosecuting RICO charges.

Young Thug is alleged to be one of three founding members of YSL and that the group claims affiliation with the the national Bloods gang, according to the indictment.

The 56-count indictment names 28 alleged associates of “YSL,” including rapper Gunna, whose legal name is Sergio Giavanni Kitchens. The "Pushing P" rapper – who has been rumored to be dating singer Chloe Bailey – was hit with a RICO conspiracy charge. As of the time of this post, Gunna has not been booked in jail.

 

NEW INFO: Suspected YSL associate charged w/ shooting up Lil Wayne’s tour bus while the hip-hop superstar was performing in Atlanta in 2015. Jimmy Winfrey is charged with aggravated assault w/ a deadly weapon , according to indictment.

— Michael Seiden (@SeidenWSBTV) May 10, 2022

Others named in the indictment face charges, including murder, assault with a deadly weapon and armed robbery. One YSL affiliate was charged with shooting up Lil Wayne’s tour bus while he was performing in Atlanta in 2015. According to the indictment, Jimmy Winfrey is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

And here’s his mugshot:

 

Turns out, the feds have been building a case since 2015 against Thugga with accusations of racketeering activity between January 2013 and May 2022. In 2015, the rapper allegedly rented an Infiniti Q50 sedan in his name that was used in a deadly drive-by shooting that killed rival gang member Donovan “Peanut” Thomas Jr.

 

Prosecutors allege that two associates of YSL, CHRISTIAN EPPINGER and ANTONIO SUMLIN, worked to get permission of @youngthug to make a 2nd attempt to murder @YFNLUCCI while he’s jailed in Fulton County. @wsbtv @MarkWinneWSB

— Michael Seiden (@SeidenWSBTV) May 10, 2022

 

According to the indictment, Thugga posted a video on social media 16 days after the shooting where he said others who “tell the God’s honest truth” in the courtroom “need to get (expletive) killed bro, from me and YSL.”

 

I’m continuing to read through the 88 page indictment. Here is the complete list of defendants and charges they’re facing. pic.twitter.com/UvZpCei1uq

— Michael Seiden (@SeidenWSBTV) May 10, 2022

 

This killing launched the gang war between Young Thug and YFN Lucci (real name Rayshawn Bennett), who is the ex-boyfriend of Reginae Carter (Lil Wayne’s daughter). The gang war has been going on for the last seven years with diss tracks, Instagram posts and actual murders of rival gang members.

Prosecutors said Thugga and his associates promoted YSL’s interests on social media and through their music.

Christian Eppinger, who has been accused of shooting a Atlanta police officer six times in a February shooting, was also included in the indictment. He’s known as “Big Bhris,” a Bloods gang member and aspiring rapper connected to the YSL crew. He’s facing 15 NEW charges after Monday’s indictment, including attempted murder.

Rapper YFN Lucci has been sitting in Fulton County jail on murder and racketeering charges for the last year after a botched drive-by left one of his friends dead. In court documents, Lucci said he was stabbed in jail two days after Big Bhris was arrested. Yikes.

Atlanta reporter George Chidi has been following the gang violence in Atlanta, piecing together murders that are connected in an attempt to find ways to crack down on the city’s violence.

Remember when Young Thug’s baby’s mother was tragically killed outside of a bowling alley back in March?

Reporter Chidi believes it’s possibly connected to the gang war that has been plaguing the city. LaKevia Jackson – the mother of Thugga’s 14-year-old son Kyvion – was shot dead after getting into an argument over a bowling ball. The shooter waited 20 minutes before gunning her down in the parking lot at the Metro Fun Center.

Thugga is expected to appear for his first court appearance Tuesday morning. We’ll keep you posted.

It appears Chloe Bailey and Reginae Carter dodged a bullet…literally.

‘QUEENS’ Canceled After One Season + Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier & Lance Reddick Join ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Remake

ABC’s "Queens" has been dethroned after one season!

In the film world, Teyana Taylor and Laura Harrier have been added to the cast of the White Men Can’t Jump remake. All the entertainment deets inside…

No Season 2 for “QUEENS!”

ABC has dethroned "The Nasty B******" after giving the show the axe after its first season, which included 13 episodes.

The musical drama – helmed by “Scandal” writer Zahir McGhee – starred Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton and Nadine Velazquez as four members of a 90s girl group called The Nasty B*tches. It followed the hit Hop Hip group – estranged, out-of-touch and in their 40s –  as they reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

During the first season, the women were able to squash decade-old beefs with one another, growing closer together before lauding their own record label. Brianna – played by Eve – was shot midseason and went off-screen to “recover,” a scene which was written in to accommodate Eve’s real-life pregnancy.

The series averaged almost 1.9 million total viewers along with a 0.5 demo rating. Out of the eight TV drama that aired on ABC this season, “Queens” ranked last in audience and was only better than “Promised Land” in the demo. According to TVLine, "QUEENS" was the least watched non-CW freshman drama this TV season.

By the way, Eve just experienced her first Mother’s Day here in the U.S. and the U.K.:

Teyana Taylor (Coming 2 America), Laura Harrier (BlacKkKlansman) and Lance Reddick (John Wick) will join the cast of 20th Century Studios’ remake of White Men Can’t Jump. They’ll be joining previously announced cast members Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow. As we told you previously, folks are NOT here for Jack – who doesn’t have any acting experience – 

No plot details have been released just yet.

Deadline reports:

The film will offer a new take on Ron Shelton’s 1992 sports comedy, starring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes and Rosie Perez, which saw Black and white basketball hustlers join forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a basketball tournament. Harlow is stepping into the role originated by Harrelson, with Walls taking on Snipes’, and Reddick playing Benji Allen, the father of Walls’ character Kamal. Benji is living with MS and has been Kamal’s coach and support system since a very young age.

Veteran music video director Calmatic, who helmed the upcoming House Party remake for New Line, is mounting the reboot. Kenya Barris wrote the script with Doug Hall and is producing via his Khalabo Ink Society banner. Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein are exec producing through their Mortal Media banner, alongside Doug Hall and E. Brian Dobbins.

Previously, Kenya Barris said the film isn’t exactly remake of the original film. It’s moreso an inspiration for the new basketball comedy they’re trying to create.

Blac Chyna Named Suspect In Battery Investigation For Allegedly Kicking Woman + Tokyo Toni Says She’s Working On Talk Show With Chy

Blac Chyna has found herself in the middle of a criminal investigation after a woman accused her of kicking her in the stomach at a bar just days after she lost her defamation suit against the Kardashian-Jenners. Deets on the alleged attack, plus what Tokyo Toni claims she and her daughter Chy have in store inside…

Blac Chyna is going through it!

A woman filed a police report against Blac Chyna – just days after losing her defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenners – accusing her of assault, so she’s she’s criminally investigated by the LAPD. 

The alleged victim – named Sequoya Kingtold TMZ and Facebook that Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White) physically attacked her during a dispute at a bar in Los Angeles early Friday morning.

 

In her Facebook post, Sequoya (pictured above) shared Chyna destroyed her cellphone and kicked her in the stomach, causing her to fall down, after a verbal dispute turned physical.

"For those of you who missed my post earlier this morning I was assaulted by Blacc Chyna!,” she wrote. “My phone was snatched by her and destroyed and while trying to defend myself she kicked me in my stomach, I have done everything to resolve the matter peacefully but at this point she has to be exposed !!! Stop doing drugs sis it’s not a good look. I have been disrespected yet still remained humble. It’s not about the money I just want a new phone, and she has to be held responsible for her actions!!! Moving forward I will take all measures to make sure she is not able to do any more bodily harm to anyone else!!!”

So, what was Chyna and this woman arguing about in the first place?

It seems Chyna confronted the woman when she thought she was being recorded by people in the bar. Chyna allegedly snatched the woman’s phone out of her hand and slammed it to the ground. Sequoya denies ever filming Chyna. TMZ shared flicks of the alleged phone:

 

After Chyna allegedly attacked the woman, her friends pulled her away and got her into a car. A video of the aftermath has surfaced, which you can check out below:

 

Check out the video which shows the aftermath of the alleged attack.

At around 1:15 you hear the alleged victim say, "Did you feel good when you kicked me in my fat-ass stomach?"

It sounds like Blac Chyna denies it.

Thoughts??? #BlacChyna #SequoyaKing #Lovelytitv pic.twitter.com/uv1aDsUEWQ

— lovelyti (@lovelyti) May 7, 2022

 

The battery accusation comes just days after Chyna lost her $140 million defamation suit against the Kardashian-Jenners. Despite not winning, jurors found that Chyna did not harm her ex-fiancé Rob Kardashian. Chyna’s lawyer, Lynne Ciani, plans to file an appeal. By the way, a separate trial is reportedly set to begin soon to address allegations in the lawsuit against Rob Kardashian. He’s the only defendant in that case.

As for Chyna’s mother…

After creating a GoFundMe to fund Chyna’s appeal, Tokyo Toni claims she and her daughter are working on a new TV talk show with her daughter. Chyna’s controversial mother told TMZ the show will carry her name and will be shown on her own network.

”We are going to do one [a new show], on my network it’s called the SHN network it’s called ‘Talking With Tokyo.’”

The show will be more like a “chat show” rather than a reality show where she and Chyna will talk to guests.

”Yeah (a talk show) me and Blac Chyna. Every day (we will be interviewing) people celebrities, you TMZ, bloggers, come on in stage sit down and talk,” Tokyo continued.

Peep the clip above. Would you watch?!

In case you were wondering, Tokyo has raised $1,281 of her $400,000 GoFundMe goal.

In January 2021, Lanisha and Nick Cannon seemingly confirmed they were BACK together after photos of them copping new tattoos surfaced on social media. Lanisha decided to get “King Cannon” tattooed under her boob, while Nick got his whole neck tattooed. No mention of Nick getting Lanisha’s name inked on his body.

It was odd because right before she copped her tattoo, Nick became a father for the fourth time when he and his ex-Brittany Bell welcomed their daughter, Powerful Queen, Christmas 2020.

The video vixen – who starred in Pharrell Williams’ “Frontin” video – was in a relationship with the "Masked Singer" host around the same time it was announced he was expecting twins with another woman. 

On Valentine’s Day 2021, the “America’s Got Talent” host showered Lanisha and his baby mamas, DJ Abby De La Rosa and Brittany Bell, with extravagant balloons and flowers to show his love. After the "sisterwives" V-Day drama, Lanisha and Nick seemed to have called it quits.

The daytime TV host is gearing up to welcome his eighth child with “Wild ’N Out” model Bre Tiesi, who is the ex-wife of former NFLer Johnny Manziel.

Mr. NCredible shares 10-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, with ex-wife Mariah Carey.

Christmas 2020, Nick welcomed daughter Powerful Queen with his ex-Brittany Bell, with whom he also shares a 5-year-old son named Golden. He became a father again when he and DJ Abby De La Rosa welcomed twin boys – Zillion Heir & Zion Mixolydian – on June 14, 2021. Nine days later, Nick welcomed a baby boy – named Zen S. Cannon – on June 23rd, whom he shared with "Wild ‘N Out" girl Alyssa Scott.

In a tragic turn of events, Nick and Alyssa lost their 5-month-old son Zen to brain cancer in December 2021. Following his death, Nick revealed he feels “heavy guilt” for not spending more time with him.

Last week…

Alyssa had social media in a frenzy when she shared a selfie that appears to show herself all boo’d up with the "Wild ‘N Out" honcho. 

The photo (above) was shared on the heels of a report that Nick was allegedly set to babymoon with his pregnant baby mama Bre Tiesi in the Bahamas. She’s expecting to give birth to Nick’s 8th child in a few months.

Whew, chile. Looks like she may have dodged a bullet. Time will tell.

Antonio Brown Says Colin Kaepernick’s Foundation Hasn’t Done Any Work, Calls Him A ‘Trash’ QB And ‘Sell Out’ Who ‘Isn’t From The Hood’

Antonio Brown has some unfiltered opinions about Colin Kaepernick that’s sparking debate. Apparently, he feels like Kaepernick sold out by settling his collusion lawsuit against the NFL, calls him a “trash” quarterback that doesn’t really want to play, and then he questions what the free agent’s foundation has actually done for people “in the hood.” All he said inside…

 

Embattled NFL star Antonio Brown is highly critical about NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick and he’s sharing his unfiltered opinions with anyone who will listen. Over the last few days, the ex-Bucs baller has been speaking on Kaepernick’s name in interviews, questioning his philanthropic efforts and his talents on the football field.

During a sit-down interview on “Cigar Talk,” AB shared what he thought about Colin’s ongoing battle with the NFL after he launched a silent protest in 2016 by kneeling during the National Anthem in an effort to raise awareness to police brutality.

It seems AB – who’s currently working on DONDA Sports projects with Kanye West – feels like the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback sold out when he agreed to a settlement with the NFL in 2019 following his collusion lawsuit, which he filed October 2017. AB said folks shouldn’t feel sorry for Kaepernick because he “took the money.”

”He took a deal," the 34-year-old said. "We don’t feel sorry for you. You took the deal. F*** outta here. Man, you on f***ing Nike, man. F*** outta here."

It was previously reported by the Wall Street Journal that Colin and his former teammate Eric Reid would split the less than $10 million they received in the settlement. In the case, Kaepernick claimed the NFL’s 32 owners "colluded to deprive him of employment rights in retaliation for his leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States."

AB also questioned if Colin – who released his first children’s book in October 2021 – is doing what he claims via his foundation. He doesn’t believe the foundation is helping underprivileged people “in the hood.”

"He built a foundation. What it do, though? I’m being real. What superhero he enforce? Who he put on? Who he help?,” AB questioned.

The former NFL QB established the Colin Kaepernick Foundation, a non-profit organization with the primary focus of fighting oppression through education and social activism. The Million Dollar Pledge, a program in which Kaepernick vowed to donate $1 million to charity, has been a hallmark component of the organization. Kaepernick has donated to a large number of causes, including Mothers Against Police Brutality, School on Wheels and Youth Services, Inc.

In addition, Kaepernick has established the “Know Your Rights Camp,” an enterprise fully funded by Kaepernick to raise awareness on higher education, self-empowerment and to instruct others on how to properly interact with law enforcement. 

Since being blackballed from the league, Colin has expressed he wants to play. He uses social media to post videos of his practices, making it known if someone from the NFL calls him up, he’s showing up to practice.

AB doesn’t believe Colin REALLY wants to play football. 

”You took the money, the commercials. We don’t see you outside. We don’t see him in the hood. He don’t do nothing. Like, we cool. But, nah, we ain’t even stan Kaepernick."

He continued, "He not even from the hood. He haven’t even been in the trenches. We like Kaepernick and all, but we ain’t really on that."

Whet?!  This coming from a man who literally LEFT a football game in the middle of the game?!

Check out the clip that’s circulating below:

 

You can watch the full interview here:

That wasn’t the only interview AB came for Kaepernick in…

AB also popped mentioned Colin in a recent interview with 50 Cent’s This Is 50 network where he wanted to make it crystal clear that he should not be compared to the former NFL quarterback.

“We saw what happened to Colin Kaerpernick …” interviewer June Archer said before AB cut him off.

“Colin Kaepernick not AB. Colin Kaepernick not even from the hood. He’s not even from Liberty City. So, I don’t even want to mention his name,” he said. “AB is a valuable football player. AB had stats last year, touchdowns.” 

He doubled down on his comments about why people shouldn’t feel sympathy for Kap.

“He’s been treated good,” AB said. “He got (a) Netflix documentary. Don’t get it twisted. See that’s the wrong thing about the world. We think, ‘Oh Kaepernick treated so bad because they don’t let him play football.’ Yeah, they didn’t let him play football, they gave him commercials. They gave him money. I’m not trying to tell you what ‘they’ did, I’m telling you the reality of what happened.”

AB said Colin isn’t really “blackballed” because he was still able to sign contracts and still make money. He believes if the NFL really banned him, he wouldn’t have received any contracts to anything. He then goes on to explain the difference between Colin being “banned” and how he has been treated.

“Kaepernick, I feel like he’s a great guy. He stood for a great cause but he don’t understand. He’s not from Liberty City. He’s not even built like that. Dudes like me, they ban you. They don’t even give you contracts. They don’t even want to deal with you. I’m not really an icon right now. You don’t see them writing no books about me,” Brown said.

“You telling me, yo Colin Kaepernick, what did he do? What’s he at right now? Do you see him? I’m on the streets right now every day – people seeing me. They get excited. You know why? Because I make them feel good. They can relate. They know what’s really going on. But they know I still put on a smile and overcome it.

“Colin Kaepernick created all commotion then went in the cut in the corner. I’m in the people’s face every day.”

 

AB is comparing apples to oranges. And, like when most men feel threatened, is making up ish to belittle the person he’s threatened by. 

He would feel some kind of way if someone questioned his alleged "pro black" beliefs because he dates and procreates with white women, diminishing the "black wealth" he so often preaches about.  So he should probably not question the next man’s blackness.

Thoughts?

EXCLUSIVE SNEEK PEEK: Tina Goes OFF & Drops A ‘Truth’ Bomb About Paul On OWN’s ‘Ready To Love’

Chile, your girl Tina has had it with the "experiment" that is "Ready To Love" and she calls out Paul while explaining why she wanted to self-eliminate.  And it’s not pretty.  Watch our exclusive sneak peek inside.

 

Folks have been extra mad at "Ready To Love" star Tina for basically self-eliminating from the entire dating process the show is about because she claimed it was too hard dating 4-5 men she wasn’t vibing with immediately.  So when the cast came together to talk to host Nephew Tommy on tonight’s episode, things get heated.  And Tina’s not the only one who gets called out.

In the sneak peek, Tina is confronted after ghosting the process and drops a bomb about Paul. Nephew Tommy asks Tina her reasons for ghosting everyone on the show, and she calls Paul a liar, saying he and someone they called on 3-way confirmed he was solely doing the show to promote his upcoming book.  He apparently wasn’t actually there to find love, and pressured Tina to self eliminate so he could have her to himself.

Chile, you gotta watch.

 

"Ready to Love" is Friday night’s top original cable series among African American women, and we can see why.   Tune in for new episodes on Fridays at 8/7c and catch up on the Watch OWN app.

Will Smith, Cardi B To Appear On David Letterman’s Netflix Show + Queen Latifah’s ‘Equalizer’ Renewed For Seasons 3 & 4!

David Letterman has tapped Will Smith and Cardi B as his next guests to appear on his hit Netflix show. Also, Queen Latifah’s show “Equalizer” has been renewed for two additional seasons. Woot! More inside…

There’s much to discuss, especially for Will Smith and Cardi B. They’ll have a chance to let it all out in a candid discussion with David Letterman for a new season of his hit Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.”

The fourth season of the show will kick off on Friday, May 20th on Netflix and it includes candid discussions with Hollywood titan Will Smith and rap queen Cardi B.

Will this be the first time the Bad Boys star talks about the infamous Oscars slap? No. All of the episodes were filmed prior to March 2022, so Will’s episode was filmed before the infamous slap.

Last month, Will was seen for the first time since the Oscars slap in Mumbai, India. As you know, Will apologized several times and then resigned from the Academy after he walked on stage during the Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock after he made a “G.I. Jane” joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bald head.

Later, the Academy banned the 53-year-old actor from the Oscars gala and other Academy events for 10 years. Since then, Chris Rock has been on a comedy tour where he shared he’s not talking about the slap until he gets paid. 

It’s reported Will has been going to therapy post-Oscars.

As for Cardi…

As far as drama, the “UP” rapper was recently scored a victory in court involving the defamation lawsuit she filed against YouTuber Tasha K for slandering her name. A judge awarded Cardi $4 million in damages for defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Tasha K filed an appeal, which she promised to do after the ruling, in an effort to have the judgement overturned. We wonder what she has to say about it all. 

There’s much to discuss.

Other guests joining Letterman include Kevin Durant, Billie Eilish, Ryan Reynolds and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Also coming to television…

TV buffs are LOVING Queen Latifah in “The Equalizer.” So much so, CBS has renewed the drama for TWO more seasons, which will take the series through its fourth year in 2023-24. Queen Latifah stars in the show – which is an update of the 80s CBS drama with the same title – and is an executive producer.

“The Equalizer continues to pack a powerful punch on Sunday nights, and we’re thrilled to have it back for two more seasons,” said Thom Sherman, senior executive vp programming at CBS Entertainment.

 

“The success of The Equalizer is due to the sum of its parts — an outstanding cast led by the superb Queen Latifah, plus the exceptional creative team that has continued to evolve their storytelling with a compelling mix of everyday justice, family dynamics and real-world issues that connect and resonate with audiences.”

 

 

Queen is killing her role too! Congrats.

BREAKING: YouTuber Kevin Samuels’ Mother CONFIRMS He Passed Away, Says She Found Out Via Social Media

Rumors about the death of controversial YouTuber Kevin Samuels had social media in a frenzy yesterday and well into the night. Today, his mother confirms he did, in fact, pass away. She says she found out about his death via social media. Tragic. More inside…

 

Since yesterday, there has been speculation that controversial YouTuber Kevin Samuels passed away. There were several unconfirmed rumors, based on an alleged transcript from an alleged 9-1-1 call, that he died from a heart attack. While his official cause of death is unknown at this time, Kevin’s mother has confirmed he did, indeed, pass away.  Industry insiders and a close frined of Kevin, Anton Daniels, also confirmed the news.

 

So I’ve now gotten confirmation from multiple sources that Kevin Samuels has passed away.

— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) May 6, 2022

 

According to NBC News, his mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, confirmed the divorced dating advisor died, but she declined to release details about what happened. Sadly, she revealed she learned of her son’s death via social media.

”That was a terrible thing for social media to put that out. I didn’t even know. I hadn’t even been notified," she said in a phone call with NBC News on Friday. "All I’m doing is requesting that people pray for us."

The Atlanta Police Department revealed officers responded to an apartment Thursday morning "regarding a person injured." By the time police arrived, first responders were performing CPR on an unresponsive man later identified as Samuels.

According to the police report, Kevin was entertaining a woman named Ortencia Alcantara (who identified herself as a nurse) whom he met that night. She spent the night at his apartment. Thursday morning, Kevin began complaining about chest pain before falling on top of her, so she called 911.

 

More details on Kevin Samuels, per Atlanta Police

– A woman met Samuels and spent the night with him. She ID’d him as Kevin Samuels.
– Samuels complained of chest pain, fell on top of her, and she called 911.

He was reportedly taken to Piedmont Hospital. When contacted, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said it could not confirm or deny any information. His cause of death still has not been revealed.

A Twitter user shared Kevin revealed he battled Stage 3 Hodgkin Lymphoma in college, which reportedly raises your risk of dying from a heart attack in later years:

 

He said he had battled stage 3 non Hodgkin’s lymphoma in college. They say the radiation treatments from that triples the risks of you dying from a heart attack

A close friend of Kevin’s also confirmed the news of his death:

With over 1 million Instagram followers and 1.4 million YouTube subscribers, his controversial attacks on Black women often spark outrage. The self-proclaimed “professional image consultant” gained popularity at the expense of black women as he often times would humiliate and insult black women when they joined his live sessions.

Not only that, he often times talked down on men like Future – men who procreate and spread their seed with several different women. While he condemns that behavior, in the same breath he blames black women for choosing to have children with men like that. He was highly criticized for the blame and energy never being equal, though.

What’s interesting is that Kevin (who considered himself a high value man) was with a nurse. He very recently preached to his followers that high value men should stay away from women of certain professions, including nurses, and should never marry one.

Some of his controversial views would rile folks up on social media, sparking heated discussions between men and woman. After learning that Kevin may have died, some people rejoiced, while others condemned them for being happy about his death.

  

Unconfirmed reports have hit the net stating that YouTuber Kevin Samuels has died — and the delusional toxic black women are rejoicing as if their position in life or bank accounts have increased. You miserable diabolical heauxs are tired, sad and pitiful. I said what TF I said. pic.twitter.com/iujBMg92Dk

1. Makes money out of holding women accountable, and telling black women the blunt truth

2. Not once incited any violence to anyone

3. Never happened

He’s done more for the black community than all the women he talks to put together

Kevin Samuels has made a career off of shamelessly disgracing Black women for profit.

He emboldened the most toxic individuals to project tired and harmful narratives about Black women.

Dead or alive, what a disgraceful life to live.

That’s all I’ve got for that misogynist.

All I can say about Kevin Samuels is if you spend your time disrespecting people in life, don’t be surprised at people disrespecting you in death. No matter how cruel it may be, the legacy you leave behind will be known by the fruit you bore while you were here.

Sonya Curry ‘Saddened’ Over Steph Curry’s Reaction To Divorce From Dell Curry, Addresses Handling Cheating Accusations

Sonya Curry speaks out for the first time since filing for divorce from Dell Curry, sharing how she felt when she read her son Steph Curry’s reaction to their divorce in a recent interview. Find out what she said about the divorce aftermath, her new book and more inside….

Sonya Curry is ready for the next chapter in life after filing for divorce from retired NBA star Dell Curry last summer. The filing launched bevy of finger-pointing headlines, reporting both Sonya and Dell cheated on each other throughout their 33-year marriage.

Daytime talk show host Tamron Hall called up Sonya Curry to discuss her new book, “Fierce Love: A Memoir of Family, Faith, and Purpose.” The longtime WAG opened up about raising her three children, NBA stars Steph and Seth Curry and daughter Sydel, and how they reacted to the news of her recent separation from their father. 

In a recent interview with The Ringer, Steph Curry got candid about what it’s been like dealing with his parent’s divorce.

“It’s challenging for sure,” the Golden State Warriors point guard said. “I could be mad and be like, ‘Y’all effed this up.’ I could have that approach. But it’s going to be an acknowledgment of both of y’all in terms of how y’all raised me. The calmness I have in myself is because of y’all.”

Mama Curry said hearing how he feels about the divorce makes her sad, however, she’s fulfilled knowing what she poured into all three of her children is coming back full-fold.

“Well, at first, I was saddened, because yes, I know that this isn’t something easy for anybody.” She continued, “This is a hard thing. And to feel like you cause other people pain in any situation is difficult. So for me to find a way to process that, that I could have caused pain to someone else. But then also I was just happy and fulfilled to know that the parenting and all the love and the nurturing that we’ve poured into our children is coming out that way and he’s able to express that, just made me so proud because now it’s like they’re giving to me, everything I poured into them is coming back to me full-fold and it’s such a blessing.”

Check out the clip below:

Not long after reports that Dell & Sonya Curry were divorcing hit the media, details about why they decided to call it quits after 33 years started trickling in.

In court documents, Dell accused his estranged wife Sonya of cheating on him with former New England Patriots tight end Steve Johnson and lying to him about the relationship. Not only that, he accused her of living with Johnson in Tennessee. Since she’s allegedly in a new relationship and living with her man, Dell feels she shouldn’t be entitled to alimony.

On the flip side, Sonya accused Dell of sleeping with multiple women throughout their three-decade long marriage. It was so bad, supposedly, it ended up being an “open family secret” where their family and friends KNEW about his infidelity. Yikes.

The 55-year-old mom shared how she’s handling negative headlines about her marriage:

“Well, I started even with raising the children that we wouldn’t purchase the newspaper when Dell was playing because, because of that, you know, one day they love you and one day they’re tearing you down and criticizing you. So, you know, we’ve raised them to stay even keel, next play and just focus on what they’re in control of. And so, I’ve tried to do the exact same thing. I don’t listen to a lot of the social media. If something kind of leaks and gets to me and sneaks in then you know, I just take it to prayer and try to leave it with God and focus on what I can focus on and you know, take accountability for the things, if there’s something in there that’s you know, truthful, then I try to take accountability for that and just get better, just wake up every day and lean into you know what my book is titled ‘Fierce Love,’ a lot of grace and a lot of Mercy every day for myself, and then I can give that to other people as well. So and relying on my children, as long as I know the people that I love, know the truth, then I can, you know, lean on that as well.”

Peep the clip below:

The former couple, who met at Virginia Tech University as student athletes, got married in 1988. They have three grown children, Steph (34), Seth (31) and Sydel Curry (27). By the way, Seth – who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets – celebrated his 31st birthday the same day the divorce news broke. Ugh.

Mother of Miss USA Cheslie Kryst Reveals Cheslie’s Heartbreaking Last Text, Shares Pageant Queen Attempted Suicide Before

Months after the impossibly tragic death of Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst, her mother, April Simpkins, speaks out for the first time.  She reveals the painful text message Cheslie sent her before she took her own life and shed light on Cheslie’s battle with depression growing up. The heartbreaking story inside…

WARNING! This post could be triggering to some.

The nation was utterly shocked to learn the woman who jumped to her death from the 29th floor of a luxury midtown Manhattan high rise building was Miss USA 2019 and "Extra" correspondent Cheslie Kryst.

From the outside looking in, it appeared Cheslie had it all and was living her best life. The 30-year-old was exceptional in every way, even seen as perfect in many of our eyes. She was a D1 track star in college, graduated with every honor before attending law school & Grad school simultaneously to earn her J.D. and MBA, achieved several honors in her post-Graduate studies, wowed the world during her Miss USA pageant Q&A that went viral due to her bold answer about the #MeToo movement, represented people who needed help in their fight for social justice, often pro bono, and was absolutely stunning both inside and out.

What people didn’t know is that she struggled with depression daily. That battle ended on January 30th, leaving her parents and siblings devastated. Cheslie was the 2nd oldest out of six children.

A post shared by April Simpkins (@aprils_hr)

For the first time since the untimely passing of her daughter, Cheslie’s mother, April Simpkins, is speaking out. For her first sit-down interview, April chopped it up with “Red Table Talk” co-hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris about her daughter and what she had been going through.

Being candid, April shared Cheslie struggled with depression since her early 20s. At that time she was pursuing two degrees, so he mother thought school was the culprit as she was working on her law degree and an MBA at the same time.

While she knew her daughter struggled with mental health, she didn’t realize the severity of her struggle because she hid it. Not until she attempted suicide for the first time. After that, she said she and Cheslie grew very close and she wanted her daughter to know she could call her when she was in a crisis. Her mother made sure she got her help, signing her up to see a counselor.

On the day Cheslie took her life, April said she received a gut wrenching text message from Cheslie following a an exercise class. She said Cheslie knew she regularly went to workout on Sunday mornings, so she sent it when she knew her mother wouldn’t have her phone. An hour had passed before April saw the text.

“First, I’m sorry, by the time you get this, I won’t be alive anymore. And it makes me even more sad to write this because I know it will hurt you the most,” Cheslie wrote to her mother.

“I love you mom, and you are my best friend, and the person I’ve lived for for years. I wish I could stay with you, but I cannot bear the crushing weight of persistent sadness, hopelessness, and loneliness any longer,” the text continued.

Overcome with grief, April said she couldn’t read it all.

“I’ve never told you these feelings, because I never wanted you to worry, and because I hoped they would eventually change, but I know they never will. They follow me through every accomplishment, success, family gathering, friendly dinner.

In the message, Cheslie explained how no matter what she accomplished, she wasn’t happy and was always overcome with feelings of sadness and loneliness.

“I’ve never told you these feelings, because I never wanted you to worry, and because I hoped they would eventually change, but I know they never will. They follow me through every accomplishment, success, family gathering, friendly dinner.

"I cry almost every day now, like I’m in mourning. I wished for death for years. And I know you would want to know and want to help, but I haven’t wanted to share this weight with anyone. 

“Regardless of that, thank you sincerely for being there for me in some of my loneliness moments without me even telling you I needed you.

“You have kept me alive and ready to face another day, because you answer every phone call and you are there for me at the drop of a hat. You listen to me and care when I tell you what goes on in my life and you’ve always made me feel like you loved me. 

“I love you more than any person I’ve ever known. You’ve done nothing wrong, you’ve done everything right.”

This absolutely broke our heart. We can’t even imagine.

In the message, Cheslie also shared her final wishes and other personal information that April decided to keep to herself. And understandably so.

Incredibly tragic. We do find comfort that her mother is dedicated to carrying our Cheslie’s final wishes. Her mother shared she’ll never be the same again and said she’s working on how to handle grief in her life daily.

Prayers to Cheslie’s entire family, friends and fans!

EXPOSED: Ray J Says Kim & Kris ‘Leaked’ Sex Tape In Business Deal, Felt Suicidal As Kardashians LIED On His Name + Says Kanye Had No Clue Kim Already Had 2nd Tape

Ray J is tired of keeping silent, so he’s spilling scorching “sex tape” TEA. The reality star/singer reveals the “leaked” sex tape of himself and Kim Kardashian was actually a business deal all along. He confirms there is a second sex tape, however, Kim has been in procession of it the entire time, so the clip of Kanye West "delivering" the 2nd sex tape to Kim is CAP.

Deets from his explosive interview inside…

Ray J is breaking his silence after 14 years.

As we all know, Kim Kardashian’s claim to fame is the infamous sex tape she made with Ray J that was “leaked” in 2007. For years, the Kardashian Klan made it seem like Ray J was the one who leaked the intimate video, which ultimately caused a lot of pain and suffering for the R&B crooner, yet he stayed mum about it all.

However, after witnessing a clip from the Kardashians new Hulu series, the "I Hit It First" singer decided it was TIME. And he’s spilling scorching hot tea.

Ray J has accused Kim K of spreading lies, claiming he was in possession of a second sex tape and that he has been threatening to leak it if she didn’t cough up the cash. On the show, Kanye West – Kim K’s ex-husband – was made out to be a “hero” as he was shown giving his ex-wife a bag that supposedly included the second sex tape that she and Ray J made.

Peep the clip below:

The “One Wish” singer said that’s cap because he NEVER owned footage of any of the sex tapes. Now, he’s telling HIS side of what went down.

Wow Thank you God!
TRUTH- https://t.co/QF3XAwYZ8o

— Ray J (@RayJ) May 4, 2022

 

In an interview with The Daily Mail, the 41-year-old revealed Kim kept the sex tape footage in a Nike box under her bed.

”She kept them all – she had to go find that tape [Sex Tape Cabo #1] and then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our whole relationship," he shared.

”I never had a single one at my house – she had them at her house. She’s always had all the tapes in a Nike shoe box under her bed. I’m sure she has bigger beds now and better boxes. That’s how it all came about. Once I pitched the idea to her, just playing around a little bit, that’s when she jumped on the idea, talked to her mom and it was out of my hands from there.”

Initially, it was Ray’s idea to have the sex tape released, which he suggested to Kim after seeing how Paris Hilton’s profile was boosted when a film she made was leaked. Kim allegedly got her momager, Kris Jenner, to organize its release via Vivid Entertainment – a process he said he had little to do with. Kris Jenner allegedly orchestrated a deal to have her daughter’s sex tape released. 

Eventually, a contract was signed by both Ray J and Kim, which was set to have three videos released, including two sex tapes. One of the tapes were made at the Esperanza Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, one was created in Santa Barbara, and a third tape that is listed as an intro to the Cabo footage. The tape that was released was the footage taken in Cabo.

Now, the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star regrets his role in it all. He claims the Kardashians tarnished his brand by accusing him of leaking the sex tape when that’s not what happened. He said he was made out to be the villain, which cost him opportunities and tarnished his brand. Things got so bad for Ray, at one point, he contemplated suicide.

”I felt suicidal because when you know something’s real and it’s true and you’re watching a whole family create an empire from a lie they’ve created, it’s heartbreaking and disrespectful to all the entertainers who have been honest and true to their craft,” he said.

”As a black man living and working in America, it’s hard to get up every day and look out at the water or look at my family and know that they think something about you when you know it’s 1,000 per cent the other way. How do you live like that?”

”I couldn’t be a part of any reputable major network television show and do Dancing with the Stars, and do America’s Got Talent or anything like that because of my image. Because of what they made me, I’m not allowed to be in those places.”

Ray J said he’s no longer staying quiet and he’s sharing his truth.

”For me, I’ve been walking on eggshells thinking I’m going to get in trouble for telling the truth and I’ve been holding onto it for the past 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They’re celebrating my destruction.”

”How do you believe that Ray J is the enemy of all enemies when we’ve been partners from the beginning of the sex tape being released up until now? We’re all still making money. But yet you go with defame me and blame me over and over and I can’t do nothing but defend my honor and speak out and tell the truth.”

As for the laptop Kanye retrieved from Ray J, he said it was a computer that had intimate photos and “mini-videos” sent to him during their four-year relationship after he heard via Kanye that Kim was worried about what kind of material the laptop might contain. He said he never threatened to release what was on the computer for money and that he was happy to hand it over to Ye.

”It wasn’t a sex tape – it was a lot of pictures, a lot of little mini videos and a lot of proof we’ve been talking over the years [since they split in 2006]. If you send me an email in 2008, the computer doesn’t change the date on it. So, in 07 it happened [Kim got in contact], Kanye could see we were talking consistently in 07, 08, 09 through her sending me texts and videos and stuff.”

Ye and Ray J did in fact meet and had a four-hour meeting at a private terminal at LAX to talk “father-to-father.” Turns out, Kanye had NO idea Kim was in on the release of their sex tape.

”Kim didn’t tell him, ‘Look I put the tape out with Ray J, it was a business deal, we both ran it together, we were business partners and we still are business partners. There’s really no problem with Ray J.’ Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kourtney – they don’t have a clue that this is a lie either," he revealed.

So, Kim made Ye think he was getting her second sex tape when she had it the entire time? Womp. 

”Apart from them stealing money from my family, we would probably still be together now,” he said.

If you didn’t know, Sonja Norwood (Ray J & Brandy’s mother & manager) filed a lawsuit against Kim Kardashian and her siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr. for allegedly spending over $120,000 on her AMEX card in 2006 and 2007. They eventually settled out of court.

Ray also released messages he exchanged with Kim K in Instagram direct messages where he pointed out that Kim knew the publishing of their sex tape was a commercial agreement and that he has kept up his side of the bargain. Peep the damaging messages below:

It’s interesting because there have been rumors swirling for years that Kris Jenner pimped her daughter out for a check. And it seems Ray J has finally confirmed it. Thoughts?

U.S. Determines WNBA Star Brittney Griner ‘Wrongfully Detained’ In Russia + How The WNBA Will Tribute Her During The Upcoming Season

WNBA star Brittney Griner is still being detained in Russia, two months after she was taken into custody for allegedly carrying cannabis oil. The United States has officially declared she’s being “wrongfully detained,” which will launch more aggressive efforts to get her released.

 

Those deets, plus what the WNBA is doing to keep her name “at the forefront” inside….

WNBA star Brittney Griner, the star center for the Phoenix Mercury, is STILL in jail overseas.

In February, the WNBA star was arrested on drug charges after airport officials searched her luggage and allegedly found vape cartridges containing cannabis oil from. Reports that she was being detained didn’t come out until reports about Russia launching a war against Ukraine were released. 

In March, Russia revealed Brittney’s detention had been extended until May 19th. If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Now, the United States has officially classified Brittney has being “wrongfully detained by the Russian government.” With that, the U.S. plans to be more aggressive in its effort to secure the release of the WNBA star.

The State Department said it will continue to "undertake efforts to provide appropriate support to Ms. Griner."

”The welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad is among the highest priorities of the U.S. Government," a department spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday.

A source told NBC News that Brittney is "doing OK" and that she has met with her Russian legal team multiple times a week.

The news comes on the heels of reports that American Trevor Reed, a former Marine who had spent three years in a Russian jail, had been freed. He was released in a prisoner exchange and returned to the U.S.

The former Marine was released in the prisoner exchange of Russia for Konstantin Yaroshenko, a convicted Russian drug trafficker who was serving time in Connecticut.

Cherelle Griner, Brittney’s wife, reacted to the news of the former soldier’s release:

A few days ago, Cherelle announced she’s graduating from law school! She’ll be graduating from The North Carolina Central University School of Law with honors (cum laude)! She shared the news on her Instagram page, including a video of Brittney rocking an “NCCU Law” sweatshirt, which you can check out below:

"I didn’t just go to law school— I went to one of THE 6 HBCU law schools remaining!," Cherelle captioned. "The way my ancestors are smiling #5daystilgraduation,” she wrote. “Swipe left to see who wore it best, BG or ME! (p.s. This is clearly BG’s sweatshirt! She has more school apparel than me! Lol I love the way you support my dreams babe).”

”Final grades dropped, I’ll be graduating law school with honors (cum laude)! This was no easy feat, and truthfully I didn’t even know if I could do it ! Best believe, i’ll never doubt me again #thatgirl," she captioned.

Major congrats to Cherelle! It’ll be bittersweet when she accepts her diploma being that her wife will likely not be there to witness her walk across the stage.

The WNBA plans to acknowledge the importance of Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner to the league, paying homage to the star player until her return. During the 2022 season, which tips off on Friday, May 6th, Brittney’s initials and jersey number (#42) will be featured along the sideline of all 12 WNBA courts.

“As we begin the 2022 season, we are keeping Brittney at the forefront of what we do through the game of basketball and in the community,” said WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert in a press release. “We continue to work on bringing Brittney home and are appreciative of the support the community has shown BG and her family during this extraordinarily challenging time.”

Above is the image that’ll appear on all 12 courts.

Also, the Phoenix Mercury has been granted both roster and salary cap relief so that it can carry a replacement player until Brittney, who will be paid her full salary, returns home and is ready to get back on the court. Nice!

‘A Direct Assault On Freedom’ – Politicians, Entertainers& Businesses Strongly React To ‘Leaked’ Opinion Draft Overturning Roe v. Wade

News broke that the majority of the Supreme Court had privately voted to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion right ruling after a draft opinion leaked online. The leaked document has been a confirmed, causing disarray in the Supreme Court and STRONG social media backlash from politicians, entertainers, influencers and more. Deets inside…

Breaking news about the future of women’s rights broke right in the middle of the Met Gala festivities.

On Monday, a leaked document revealed the majority of the Supreme Court privately voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling, leaving the legalization of abortion up to individual states to decide and in what circumstances. The 1973 landmark ruling ensured a woman had a choice in terminating a pregnancy in the first trimester.

Politico obtained the draft opinion, marking an unprecedented moment in the court’s modern history. The court confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft and Chief Justice John Roberts said he had ordered an investigation into what he called an "egregious breach of trust."

“Until now, a leak of this kind would have been unthinkable,” said Peter G. Verniero, a former justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. “The protocol of our highest court has been seriously ruptured. The leaking itself reflects another sad step toward casting the court as a political body, which, whatever your preferred jurisprudence, is most unhealthy for the rule of law.”

If Roe v. Wade is overturned, there will no longer be a nationwide constitutional right to legally have an abortion and it’s predicted at least 26 states are “certain or likely” to ban abortion. Women living in states where abortions are banned will have to travel to a state to have the procedure done IF they can afford to do so. And if laws in their home state are not passed that penalize women who do this.

It’s important to note, an actual opinion isn’t due on any case at this time. This could be a draft being formulated for a “what if” situation, and being worked on in advance with law clerks in his office.

It’s also important to note, if you are a person who is vehemently against the striking down of Roe v. Wade (which secures women’s right to choose and women’s right to privacy – not just including abortion but for ALL medical and some non medical situations), but believe Supreme Court appointments are insignificant, here is the proof to prove you wrong. Throughout history, The US Supreme Court can and has struck down entire federal laws – with the stroke of a pen – affecting the lives of specific groups of Americans. From slavery to Jim Crow to voting rights. It is why those who understand politics know that the Supreme Court is arguably the most powerful branch of government.

President Joe Biden blasted the draft opinion and warned that same-sex marriage and birth control are at risk if the court follows through.

Madame Vice President Kamala Harris called the private draft "a direct assault on freedom" in a tweet:

 

If the court overturns Roe v. Wade, it will be a direct assault on freedom.

— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) May 4, 2022

 

Forever President Barack Obama & Forever First Lady Michelle Obama said the ruling “would be a blow not just to women, but to all of us who believe that in a free society, there are limits to how much the government can encroach on our personal lives," in a statement.

We’ve rounded up more strong reactions from politicians, celebs and more below:

 

If you are upset that #RoeVWade is about to be overturned by the Supreme Court but you didn’t vote in 2016 or you voted for Trump because you didn’t like the smart lady, YOU did this w/your apathy or your decision to choose an imp for President. YOU gave him THREE SCOTUS seats.

Abolish the filibuster. Codify Roe. Expand the Supreme Court. Protect abortion rights by any means necessary.

We need all of the above. This is an emergency.

I was shocked to wake up to the news this morning. A reversal of Roe v. Wade would set us back 50 years and disproportionately impact the most vulnerable women in society.

I support a woman’s right to make their own decisions about their health care.

— Bill Gates (@BillGates) May 3, 2022

 

 

Not surprising. But still outrageous.

This decision is a direct assault on the dignity, rights, & lives of women, not to mention decades of settled law. It will kill and subjugate women even as a vast majority of Americans think abortion should be legal. What an utter disgrace. https://t.co/TNo1IX3Tl4

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 3, 2022

 

 

Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights.

An extreme wing of the Supreme Court may seek to deny that fundamental truth.

They may try to force their views on a country where 70% of people want Roe upheld.

We will not be quiet and we will not go back.

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 3, 2022

 

 

It is a fundamental right for a woman to make her own health decisions. We must protect the right to choose and codify Roe v Wade into law.

”The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg shared a strong reaction to the Supreme Court draft, speaking about her own teenage abortion experience in an essay for The Choices We Made.

”Women, when they decide something is not right for them, they’ll take it into their own hands," she began. "Well, we got tired over tripping over women in bathrooms — public bathrooms — who were giving themselves abortions because there was nowhere safe, nowhere clean, nowhere to go. This law came about because people wanted people to have somewhere safe and somewhere clean." 

She declared, “This is not a religious issue, this is a human issue."

Peep the clip below:

Several companies have come forward to help staff in red states bypass abortion bans, including Amazon, Citigroup, Yelp, Uber and Lyft.

DAVE CHAPPELLE SPEAKS OUT After Getting Attacked By A ‘Fan’ With A Weapon On Hollywood Bowl Stage, Attacker Stomped Out, Chris Rock’s Wild Reaction!

Dave Chappelle was attacked on stage last night by an audience member with a weapon, and now he’s speaking out about the insane situation.  Everything inside!

Lordt!  We surely hope this isn’t a trend now.

While Dave Chappelle was on stage during his Netflix Is A Joke Festival’s "Dave Chappelle & Friends" show last night at the Hollywood Bowl, someone from the audience ran on stage to attack him.

It was all caught on camera phone video, despite it being a "phone-free experience", and the audience full of celebs and thousands of fans sounded shocked and confused by what was going down. 

It all started when Dave took the stage to introduce his friends like Mos Def, and then ish started going awry.  Some reports state the attacker had a gun, while others state he had a knife.  Now, based on newly released images from LAPD, we know it was BOTH!  And it’s unclear how he got this through metal detectors:

As soon as security swooped in and took dude down, Chris Rock came from backstage and took the mic saying, "Was that Will Smith?!"  Oop!

Check it:

A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily)

 

According to reports, the attacker is a 140lb, 5ft 11, 23-year-old male named Isaiah Lee.  He was arrested by LAPD and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Apparently, he was also beat down by security (and maybe Dave himself and Jamie Foxx) backstage, so he was taken away on a stretcher as he was arrested:

Sheesh.

 

 

While it remains unconfirmed what Lee’s motives were, Dave continued joking afterwards saying: ‘It was a trans man’, referencing his beef with LGBTQ community after last year’s Sticks & Stones comedy special where many felt his jokes were an insult to the community as a whole. We’re sure that little quip won’t sit well either.

 

Jamie Foxx ended up on stage cracking jokes with him afterwards too. 

Foxx said: ‘I thought that was part of the show, I didn’t know what the f***…’

Chappelle said: ‘I grabbed the back of that n**** head. His hair was spongy. Absorbent.’

Foxx added: ‘Listen, I just want to say, this man is an absolute genius. We’ve got to make sure we protect him at all times.

‘For every comedian who comes out here, this means everything. You’re a genius. You’re a legend, I enjoyed myself thoroughly, and we’re not going to let nothing happen to you.’

Chappelle said: ‘I’ve been doing this for 35 years. I just stomped a n**** backstage. I’ve always wanted to do that.’

 

Dave’s spokesperson issued a statement today on his behalf saying:

 

 

‘Dave Chappelle celebrated four nights of comedy and music, setting record-breaking sales for a comedian at the Hollywood Bowl… he refuses to allow last night’s incident to overshadow the magic of this historic moment,’ a spokesperson said.

‘As unfortunate and unsettling as the incident was, Chappelle went on with the show.’

 

The chaos of the night doesn’t end there.  TMZ reports this Isaiah person made a rap song about Dave Chappelle recently and put it on Soundcloud.  Gotta beware of those Soundcloud rappers.  His brother also told Rolling Stone that he has mental health problems and allegedly has some connection to the trans community, but it’s not clear what that is.

Stay safe out there, y’all!

Blac Chyna ‘Unbothered’ Over Courtroom ‘L’ Against The Kardashian-Jenners, Shares GoFundMe Link Tokyo Toni Set Up For $400K Appeal

Photogs ran into Blac Chyna one day after she lost her $140 million defamation lawsuit against the Kardashian-Jenners and sis was all smiles, seemingly unbothered. Meanwhile, Chyna’s mother, Tokyo Toni, has launched a GoFundMe to help Chy pay for an appeal. Lordt. Get it all inside…

As celebs were climbing red stairs into the Met Gala, it was announced the verdict in the Blac Chyna vs. Kardashian-Jenners trial had came in.

Just before the Kardashians made their way down the red carpet, a jury reached a verdict in Chyna’s $140 million defamation case against the famous family — and they won. Kris Jenner spoke on the decision during a red carpet interview.

 

Kris Jenner talks emerging victorious from Blac Chyna’s $100 million defamation case against the Kardashians: "I’m glad it’s over. And I’m glad it’s over for the girls." https://t.co/c6aUpEHzrk pic.twitter.com/MNYZSKaD4e

— Variety (@Variety) May 3, 2022

 

Unfortunately for Chyna, she will not get a dime as the Kardashian Klan came out victorious with no damages awarded to the Lashed Boutique owner.

On Tuesday, photogs ran into Chyna – Rob Kardashian’s ex-fiancé and the mother to his 5-year-old daughter, Dream – while she was pumping gas following the verdict.

Interestingly, losing a huge case such as the one she just went through, knowing legal fees are going to be high as the heavens, Chyna didn’t seem worried or upset about what transpired. Dressed in colorful leggings and a white skull hat after a workout, she smiled at the camera and told the videographers that she’s totally focused on herself right now, building her brand, working on new music and being a good mother to her children, Dream and King Cairo, whom she shares with rapper Tyga.

You can watch the video here

In a new IG post, Chyna reminded her fans to tune in to a new show she’s starring in.

A post shared by Blac Chyna (@blacchyna)

Chyna is gearing up to star in BET’s adaptation of “The Black Hamptons,” the book from The New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber.

“From luxury communities to historic beachfront enclaves, this epic story will follow the brewing feud between the ‘Brittons’ and the ‘Johnsons,’ where the difference between old and new money is very apparent,” the official description reads.

“The Black Hamptons” cast includes Lamman Rucker, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Elise Neal, Brian White, Karon Riley, Mike Merrill, Aaron Spears, Daya Vaidya, Cameo Sherrell, Franklin Ojeda Smith, Jordan Smith, Jennifer Freeman and David Andrews.

While Chyna is focusing on herself, her mother, Tokyo Toni, is focused on helping her daughter continue to fight against the Kardashian-Jenners. Supposedly.

Tokyo Toni created a GoFundMe to raise $400,000, which we assume is for her daughter so she can appeal the judge’s decision that ruled in favor of the Kardashian Klan in Chyna’s lawsuit. She titled it “Cheering for Chyna” and explained, well, nothing. The description says:

Hey It’s Tokyo Toni

Family and friends 

Sincerely,

Momma Tokyo

That’s it chile…

Chyna also shared the link on her IG Stories:

As of the time of this post, 43 people have made donations, totaling $780 raised out of the $400,000 goal.

During the trial, Tokyo Toni was banned from the courtroom by the judge after she popped off about the trial on IG Live.

Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White) sued Kardashian-Jenners for more than $140 million with claims that they shut down the second season of her reality show, “Rob & Chyna,” and ruined her reality TV career. In the lawsuit (that was filed in 2017) against Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and their mother, Kris Jenner, Chyna alleged they each had a hand in getting “Rob & Chyna” off the air after one season. Chyna also alleged Rob was physically and verbally abusive towards her.

For their defense, the Kardashians testified the show ended because Chyna & Rob’s relationship ended. A fight that broke out in December 2016 was highlighted in the testimonies of the Kardashians. Rob and his family accused Chyna of beating Rob with a metal rod, choking him with an iPhone cord, and putting an unloaded gun to his head during an explosive argument. He accused Chyna of being strung out on drugs and alcohol. He also said he never had "real love" for her despite proposing to her and getting her pregnant.

Chyna was seeking $109,635,021 in economic damages, plus an additional $36 million in general damages for emotional distress. She sued the family with accusations of defamation, assault, battery, domestic violence and interference with prospective economic relations. 

Chyna’s attorney, Lynne Ciani, told reporters they plan to appeal the judge’s decision.

"Two things. Number one, the jury found that Chyna had not physically abused Rob Kardashian. Number two, the jury found that all four defendants intentionally interfered with [Chyna’s] contracts with the E! Network. We will appeal the remainder of the verdict."

A separate trial is reportedly set to begin in about a week to address allegations in the lawsuit against Rob Kardashian. He’s the only defendant in that case.

MET GALA AFTERMATH: Cardi B Says She’s A ‘Prisoner Of Fame’ After Joke About Doing Drugs Caused Faux Beef With Billie Eilish

Cardi B is sick and tired of fame! She’s sounding off about the backlash she has been receiving after she made a joke about “doing drugs” during Playboy’s Met Gala afterparty. Billie Eilish was caught on camera saying “she’s weird,” which started speculations that she was shading Cardi.

 

Both Cardi & Billie set the record straight in the DMs. Everything inside….

 

Cardi B sets the record straight after social media seemingly manufactured drama between herself and Billie Eilish following the biggest night in fashion.

Folks were in an uproar after a video of Cardi joking about "doing drugs" and Billie Eilish calling her “weird” afterwards started circulating. In the clip, Cardi speaks before the crowd, encouraging people to get drinks and then she jokingly sniffed and placed her finger under her nose, alluding to snorting that white stuff.

After the clip started circulating, the “Be Careful” rapper hopped on Twitter where she posted and then deleted what some fans believe was a subliminal aimed at the 20-year-old pop star. Check it out below:

Despite the post, Cardi shut down the rumors that she and Billie have “beef.” The “WAP” raptress hopped on social media to share a screen recording of her conversation with Billie in the DMs. They two artists sent voice notes to one another about the “incident.”

"Oh my God, I was so worried that you were going to see that. I was f*cking calling the people around you weird because everybody was coming up to you, shoving their phones into your ass. And I was like, ‘Just look at her with your eyes!’,” Billie said in the voice memo.

"The internet is trying to divide us. They don’t understand that you’re my baby,” responded Cardi. Listen below:

”I hate the internet cause one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama?" Cardi tweeted after the video started circulating. "Two, Ocean eyes is the song I cater to my daughter. Three, Billie is my fuckin baby. Yesterday, from the met to the party, everything was drama free. Why do yallwanna turn everything into mess?"

The 29-year-old mom-of-two went on to explain how frustrated she is with fame, insisting what she said while hosting the party was a JOKE.

“Fame has turned me into a prisoner,” she said in an IG Live. ”I really feel like I’m a prisoner to fame. I’m not myself anymore."

“I make one joke as a hostess because I am hosting a party and it gets twisted. Why can’t every celebrity joke around and say slick s**t?” she told her followers, admitting she’s “scared” to make any wrong moves. “I’m tired. I can’t be myself anymore,” she continued. “Anything that will go on social media is always bad. If I could click my f**king feet three times and go back to f**king 2013 when I was just a regular b*tch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That’s when I was me.”

In her eyes, God has "cursed" her with fame and she’s over it. She told her fans not to wish to be famous – just wish to be rich.

Speaking of the afterparty, Wendy Williams – who recently said she’s in the process of getting her show back – was reportedly in the mix. Hairstylist Derick Monroe shared a photo of the daytime talk show host after he got her all dolled up before she hit the NYC streets:

Quavo’s ‘Huncho Day’ Raises Funds To Support 25 Single Mothers For A Year + Offset, Tyreek Hill, Cam Newton & More Suit Up For Celebrity Football Game

Quavo’s “Huncho Day” resulted in a HUGE blessing for 25 single mothers living in Atlanta. The ATL native donated $150,000 to an organization that’ll help support single mothers for the next year! That’s amazing.

The Migos rapper also hosted a celebrity football game that involved Offset, Tyreek Hill, Cam Newton and several more celebs. Everything inside…

Just in time for Mother’s Day, several Atlanta-area single mothers are about to get a HUGE blessing.

In honor of his annual “Huncho Day” contribution, this year Quavo donated $150,000 to the Tender Foundation. With Quavo’s sizable donation, the foundation will be able to support 25 single mothers living in Atlanta for a year!

”At Tender, we’re bridging the financial gap and providing a safety net for single moms living on the margins here in Atlanta,” said Jaycina Almond, founder of Tender Foundation. “Our core programming consists of emergency bill pay assistance with rent, utilities, and childcare; providing Grocery store gift cards and operating a diaper bank. Now, with Quavo’s help, we’re able to pilot a new initiative called The Bridge."

The Bridge is a guaranteed income program founded on the premise that every mother deserves the opportunity to parent without the stress of survival. The Bridge is a step toward establishing equity and disrupting generational poverty for Black women and their families.

That’s amazing and very-much needed.

”Huncho Day” remains close to Quavo’s heart. He played quarterback in high school and has found a way to give back to youth in Atlanta with this unforgettable day of sports, education, music, and the arts.

The day also included a High School Youth Game (Huncho Team vs. Cam Newton’s Team) and two FCF Evening Games—Evening Game 1 (Shoulda Been Stars vs. Glacier Boyz) and Evening Game 2 (Knights of Degen vs. 8oki). The games streamed live with play-by-play commentary courtesy of Greg Mescall and Ryan Shazier.

No mention of his rumored boo Karrueche Tran.
