    Rihanna declined performing for the Super Bowl Halftime Show because, Colin Kaepernick. Get the deets, plus see Mary J. Blige turn up during a performance for charity inside...

    The NFL tried to get one of the world's BIGGEST entertainers to grace the biggest stage of the year, but she reportedly said NOPE! A source told US Weekly the NFL reached out to Rihanna to headline the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, but she declined. The reason? She STANDS with Colin Kaepernick!

    “The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the source told the publication. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

    We stan.

    Last month, the NFL announced Maroon 5 will be performing during the Super Bowl in Atlanta, with a special set by Cardi B.

    After kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality in 2016, Colin has seemingly been blackballed from the league. The former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback filed a collusion grievance against the NFL and its owners in November 2017 and it will advance to trial.

     

    Speaking of performances...

    Hosted by Bill Bellamy, the event honored Jeffrey Harleston, Universal Music Group’s General Counsel and Executive Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs with the Lifetime Music Award. Drew Nieporent, Founder of Myriad Restaurant Group, was honored with the Lifetime Business Leadership Award. The sold-out event helped raise fund for cancer research and patient treatments.

    Malcolm D. Lee almost declined directing Night School. Why? Find out what he and producer Will Packer tell TheYBF.com inside...

    A funny script. An A-list cast. What more could a director want in a film?

    Night School director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer sit down with YBF correspondent James Terrell to dish on all of the magic (and antics) that went on behind-the-scenes of the hit comedy.

    With lead actors Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish it's no surprise folks were cutting up on set. Kev and Tiff were on their comedy ish causing everyone to have to stop and reshoot several scenes before nabbing the perfect run through.

    However, all of that magic almost didn't happen as Malcolm D. Lee had originally decided he simply wasn't interested. Say what?! Yep, he wasn't feeling it. And he had one VERY good reason. Check it above.

    In case you missed it, we chopped it up about high school suspensions with Kev & Tiffany HERE!

    We've got an extended look at “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle” and it's teasing all of the a tea. Peep the clip inside and get the latest on T.I.'s assault charges....

     

    With T.I. and Tiny Harris back together a new season of their hit reality TV series is on the horizon, but this time they're adding a few of their celeb friends in the mix.

    Their new series “T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle” features Tip “T.I.” Harris and Tameka "Tiny" Harris along with their children Zonnique, Messiah, Domani, Deyjah, King, Major and Heiress. PLUS, they are bringing their ATL celebrity friends with them including Monica Brown, Antonia “Toya” Wright with her daughter Reginae Carter, and LeToya Luckett, and new husband Tommicus Walker).

    In the extended clip, fans will get to see what was going on behind-the-scenes as Tip continually made headlines for cheating and Tiny filing for divorce. The Harrises will address the cheating drama and share sweet moments with their family.

    Monica is looking to get back in the studio and she'll be sharing her journey on how she's going to balance work life, being a mom, and wife. We didn't see her hubby Shannon Brown in the teaser, and he's not in the promo press release, so it's unclear if he'll be appearing on the show.

    New mom-again Toya Wright is dealing with her mother, who is a recovered addict, and her teenage daughter Reginae Carter dating an older rapper named YFN Lucci.

    LeToya Luckett and her hubby Tommicus Walker are gearing up to welcome their new bundle of joy and letting us along the ride with them.

    Get into the family & friends vibes below:

    We're here for it! Tune in for the premiere of “T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" on Monday, October 22nd at 9PM ET/PT.

    In legal news...

     photo tiassault1.png

    Tip just caught a semi-break in that assault case he caught back in May after he got into it with a security guard. Prosecutors have reportedly dropped the assault charge he caught after they claim he made criminal threats towards the security guard who was watching the gated community Tiny lives in. The guard was reportedly sleeping when the rapper got there. He asked T.I. for some ID and when he didn't produce it, all hell broke loose.

    "You're making it worse for yourself, man ... You're gonna have to deal with me," allegedly told the security guard. Police saw that as a threat and arrested him for assault, but it didn't hold water.

    The Dime Trap rapper still reportedly faces three counts of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and one count of misdemeanor public drunkenness.

    A new poll claims Beyonce is the most politically divisive celebrity in the U.S., despite the fact she rarely speaks politics. But you still know exactly where she stands.  Let's discuss inside...

    Folks are trying it and reaching for straws at every length at this point.

    A new poll by Morning Consult found that the LEMONADE singer has been found to be "the MOST politically divisive celebrity" in the United States. This was the result despite the fact Bey hardly ever talks politics.

    The poll found that Beyoncé has a 63% favorable rating with Democrats and a -3% favorable rating among Republicans, which results in a 66-point gap.  Ha.  They hate the fact her pure existence screams unapologetically black feminism. 

    They will deal.

    The Hill reports:

    That 66-point gap was the biggest between the two political parties of any entertainer on the list.

    Fox News’ Sean Hannity took the runner-up spot on the list, with a 28 percent net favorability rating for the GOP and -37 among Democrats.

    LeBron James, Rush Limbaugh, and Ellen DeGeneres rounded out the top 5 spots on the most divisive celebrity poll. Rihanna made it in the top 10. How is it that Beyonce, of all celebrities, was named as the most politically divisive when she rarely speaks out on political issues? We know: Racism. It's showing, and we peep it. We're not the only ones either:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Sure, she incorporates black American culture into Coachella sets.  Sure, she blasted the word FEMINISM across her big ass stage at both the Formation Tour & the On The Run II tour.  And sure, she has campaigned for Hillary Clinton and is besties with the Obamas.  We guess the fact she is so powerful in her own right before she did these things is what people have a problem with. 

    Folks like LeBron are MUCH more often direct and vocal, yet he ranks lower in the divisiveness scale?  Likely because he's a man at the end of the day, and his voice is welcomed and accepted.  Intersectionality is a b***. 

    If their voices are "divisive", then oh damn well.  We applaud BOTH for continuing to do what they do and keeping those on the wrong side of history mad uncomfortable.

    Thoughts?

    Amerie is back.  She's looking gorgeous and has plenty of new music to serve up.  Deets inside...

    It's been over 2 years since she released any new music (she dropped the EP Drive back in 2016), and almost 10 years since she released a full album.  The "1 Thing" singer is now a mom, a wife and looks exactly the same as she did back when she had us on our Go-Go club tip.

    Today, Amerie dropped a double EP called 4AM MULHOLLAND and AFTER 4AM (and that extra 'i' she added to her name years ago), a follow up to her 2009 album In Love and War.  And it's a nice little Friday bop for the weekend.

     

    The 38-year-old fab chick dished to Billboard about being jaded with the industry and leaving Def Jam saying:

    “I experienced pushback because I’m a female who knows herself and doesn’t have problems speaking up.”

    As for what she's been up to in the last several years:

    I was thinking about my next project in 2012 and still making music, but I was writing [books] and wanted to put all my time into writing. I kept thinking I would get to music, but for the most part it was writing and learning story craft. I was living, breathing writing -- I wrote six novels in the past [six] years. One is done, two are almost finished, some I’m revising, others are in various states. But I was really missing actively recording, because it gives you a different creative outlet. I’m passionate about writing and story, but it creates a different kind of fatigue.

    On her new music being darker and moodier:

    The funny thing to me, I've always felt like my music is dark -- even when no one else thinks that. Like with “Why Don’t We Fall in Love,” I got on the video with the director and he’s like, “OK, I’m thinking summertime, you on a beach," and I go, “OK, this is cool, but actually my initial thought was black, red and a highway.” No one else seems to feel that.

    You can get the rest of the interview HERE.

    By the way, she wrote this EP while pregnant with her adorable now 5-month-old little nugget River Rowe.

     

     

    The double EP is available now on iTunes, Soundcloud and everywhere.  You copping it?!

    Michael B. Jordan is the gift that keeps on giving. The actor heard about US Open winner Naomi Osaka's obsession with him, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, so he invited her to the CREED 2 premiere with a sexy pic. Everything inside...

    Last month, Naomi Osaka appeared on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" after beating Serena Williams and nabbing the US Open championship.

    During their chat, Ellen was able to get Naomi to reveal her celebrity crush. It wasn't easy, but after some probing, Naomi revealed she's crushing on none other than Michael B. Jordan. Can you blame her?

    Peep her appearance at the 3:45 mark below:

    Well, Naomi's 21st birthday rolled around a few days ago and Ellen hopped on Twitter to give her a birthday present. She posted a shirtless picture of MBJ attached with a Happy Birthday message and tagged the CREED actor.

    Check it:

     photo mellen1.png

    Naomi responded,"pls block me" with the crying emoji. Ha!

    That's when MBJ jumped in, posted a FRESH shirtless picture and invited her to come to the CREED 2 premiere:

     photo mellen2.png

    Lordt! That CREED training has done his body MORE than good.

    Of course, she accepted...if he's serious. And Ellen dropped in to say "You're welcome."

     photo mellen3.png

    Cute.

    After reprising his role as Adonis Creed, the YBF hottie will transform into a hitman in The Silver Beat. It's a film adaptation of Derek Haas' book series that Michael will both star in and produce for Lionsgate. In the thriller, MBJ will play Columbus, a man who becomes a feared and respected hitman in the criminal underworld.

    Shoot your shot, Naomi!

    Lupita Nyong'o! We are not worthy! Get into her melanin magic in the November 2018 issue of VOGUE Spain inside...

     photo lvogue2.png

    Lupita Nyong'o was tapped to cover the November 2018 issue of VOGUE Spain, dubbed "The Space Odyssey, Finger Comb issue," and chick is giving us editorial chills!

    The Oscar winning actress is flawlessly gorgeous in a captivating cover and beautifully shot spread for the magazine. And she's taking the cover girl crown.

    Donning her natural hair, the Black Panther actress gets up close and personal with her editorials that show off her stunning features. Not only are we (and every other black girl) fawning over her knock out spread, Lupita herself is extra excited about it. She hopped on Instagram to share the cover and a few flicks from the spread with her fans, captioning, "I am so proud of this cover story! ¡Que orgullo me da este número! Thank you @voguespain for celebrating me and my work by making me your cover girl this #voguenoviembre!"

     photo lvogue6.png

     photo lvogue8.png

     photo lvogue7.png

    Sheesh! This whole production is FIRE!

     photo lvogue9.png

    While thanking everyone on the VOGUE Spain team, it seems the 12 Years A Slave actress threw subtle shade at Grazia Magazine - at least, that kinky hair comment makes it seem that way.

    "And thank you for celebrating my kinky hair for real!," she captioned.

    The 34-year-old actress called out Grazia magazine last month after they airbrushed her hair off the cover. The photoshop job was apparently to make her "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

    Here's what she said:

     
     
     
     
    View this post on Instagram
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

    As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

    We've got some new tunes to get you through this YBF Weekend. Go inside for new muisc from Nicki Minaj and Future, Khalid, Trina and a new video from Travis Scott and Drake...

    Future and Nicki Minaj will be hitting the road together in 2019 on their “NickiHndrxx" Tour. But before they do, they're releasing new music together.

    Future teams up with Nicki on his track "Transformer," a cut from his new joint project with Juice WRLD titled WRLD ON DRUGS.

    Fans are convinced the Young Money rapper fired shots at her nemesis Cardi B with a few punchlines on the track. First she rapped:

    “Four albums in, pull a milli for a show / While these bitches is servin’ Milli Vanilli on the low"

    Fans believe she's throwing a jab at Cardi since she has beena ccused of using a ghostwriter. And those of us old enough to know Milli Vanilli know they were known for lip-syncing during performances and also not even actually singing on their songs. They had their Grammy taken away after the scandal broke.

    Then Nicki said:

    "Some call me Nicki, but some call me Megatron / I’m stopping bags and I don’t need a red octagon"

    If you've been keeping up with the Nicki vs. Cardi B feud, then you remember when Bardi fired a subliminal shot at Nicki on Instagram, accusing her of "stopping her bag" following their now infamous altercation during NYFW. Remy Ma previously said the same thing. The "Chun-Li" rapper then started the #NickiStoppedMyBag hashtag, which resulted in memes being posted all over social media. She then took the phrase and released new merch for the Barbz.

    On the track, Nicki also rapped:"Master bathroom, two jacuzzis, and a sauna/They ain't warn her/Now she out here facin' Karma"

    Oop!

    Peep the tweets:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Take a listen below:

    What do you all think?

    In other new music...

     photo khalidEP.png

    R&B crooner Khalid serves up a new EP titled Suncity, a follow up musical offering to his debut album, American Teen.

    "More than anything in life right now I want growth. I want my music to grow and represent how I am growing up," Khalid shared about the new project. "Suncity is the start of a new era for me, this music poured out of me and I didn’t want to wait to share it. I wanted to be able to live in this moment with my fans and my friends and speak from the heart." 

    Stream the new R&B bops we've been needing below:

     photo trinabluepill.png

    Aye! The Baddest B*tch is back with new music!

    Trina just dropped a new EP, Blue Magic, that'll have you twerkin' through the weekend. The Diamond Princess enlisted some Hip Hop heavy hitters and newbies, including Da Brat, Boosie BadAzz, Kash Doll, and Chief Pound.

    According to XXL, the Miami raptress is also working on a new album titled, The One. No word just yet when it will be released.

    Catch some Trina vibes below:

     

     

    Travis Scott just released the visuals to track "Sicko World," featuring Drake. It's a cut from his chart-topping ASTROWORLD album. Take a look at the new video, co-directed by Dave Meyers and Travis himself, above.

    Ashanti was set to hit the stage at Stony Brook University, but the school canceled the concert after only selling 24 tickets. All the deets inside...

    Ashanti was scheduled to hit the stage for Stony Brook University's "Back to the Brook" concert for students, but the show was canceled due to low tickets sales. According to the university, they only sold 24 tickets total out of a total population of 25,000+ students and were forced to axe the event.

    The Braveheart singer was tapped to headline, while Justine Skye and Stony Brook University's "The Voice" contestant Kelsea Johnson were set to open.

    Now, it's not totally Ashanti's fault. Come to find out, Teyana Taylor was originally booked to perform and had to pull out due to "unforseen circumstances" two weeks prior to the show. The production team scrambled to get a new headliner, and eventually nabbed Ashanti to perform. However, the college kids weren't grabbing tickets to see her perform.

    The school issued a statement revealing the exact number of tickets sold (shade!) and explained why they decided to pull the plug on the show. In a nut shell, they said it would be cheaper to cancel than to keep promoting the show and actually executing.

    Peep their statement below:

     photo ashanticancelled2.png

    In Ashanti's defense, these college kids were babies when Ashanti was hot in these streets, so it doesn't come as a big surprise that they weren't flocking to the ticket office to drop coins they barely have.

    Meanwhile on social media...

     

     

    Ashanti has been sharing a recap of her birthday festivities after turning 38 earlier this month. Yep, she's celebrating all month long. When it comes to the saying "black don't crack," Shanti is clearly the blueprint. She's only getting better with age.

     

     

     

     

    Happy Belated Birthday Ashanti!

    Jada Pinkett Smith and Leah Remini had "the talk" and have since squashed their Scientology beef. Find out how the ladies put their ongoing feud behind them inside...

    Since launching her "Red Table Talk" show, Jada Pinkett Smith has been on a mission to squash old feuds and make amends with folks, i.e. Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino Fletcherand Gabrielle Union. Now, she's squashing a religious beef with Leah Remini.

    Following a public feud last year, Jada and Leah have reportedly hashed out their difference and made amends on an upcoming episode of "Red Table Talk" Facebook Watch series when it returns on October 22nd.

    “What was really emotional about it was realizing that there were two broken little girls in us that were abandoned by their fathers and turned into fighters who clashed,” Jada told PEOPLE about her ongoing beef with Leah.

    Jada revealed Leah reached out to settle their differences and how good it felt to let go of the feud.

    “It was really beautiful and she reached out to me,” Jada said. “She was much more bigger than me in that way. It was nice to reconnect and release ourselves from all that nonsense that doesn’t matter.”

    You'll recall, the "King of Queens" actress made claims that Jada was a longtime member of Scientology during an interview with The Daily Beast.  She said then:

    "I know Jada's in. I know Jada's in. She's been in Scientology a long time.  I never saw Will there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school, and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time."

    In her book, Leah talked about a time when she was at actor Tom Cruise’s house and he wanted to play "Hide And Seek" with a group of adults…literally. The “King of Queens” star said there were three Scientologists there that night which included her, Tom Cruise and Jada Pinkett Smith.

    As for Jada's husband Will Smith, Leah said he doesn’t seem to be apart of the religion.

    The tea she spilled caused friction between Jada and Leah. After the interview, Jada hopped on Twitter to clarify where she stood when it comes to religion.

    “I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech,” she tweeted, referring to practices developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. “But I am not a Scientologist. I practice human kindness, and I believe that we each have the right to determine what we are and what we are not.”

    She continued:

    "I recently lit Shabbat candles with Rabbi Bentley at Temple Sinai… but I am not Jewish," she tweeted. "I have prayed in mosques all over the world… but I am not a Muslim; I have read the Bhagavad Gita… but I am not a Hindu; I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist; and I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist.”

    Good for them for getting to the bottom of this face-to-face.

    Meanwhile...

     

     

    Jada is enjoying some time with her hubby Will in Dubai following both of them skydiving and bungee jumping to celebrate his 50th birthday.

    Nothing like a night out with your girls to keep your mind off all of the drama.

    Model Jasmine Sanders was spotted out in public for the first time since all of that drama involving her boyfriend Terrence J wrecking his $300K McLaren with a mystery woman.

    Jasmine popped up at Bella Hadid's True Religion Event Campaign Party held at Poppy nightclub in LA. And chick was seemingly unbothered as she put her best model foot forward on the red carpet, serving up sassy flicks in her True Religion denim look and more:

     

    Show out, then.

     photo BellaHadidxTrueReligionEventCampaignF3yPLCmGopKl.jpg

    As previously reported, Terrence J found himself in a world of trouble after his luxury, almost $300K McLaren was found balled up on the sidewalk after hitting a tree around midnight. We told y'all the actor/host's car was found abandoned and wrecked in the Studio City section of L.A., but he was nowhere to be found.  Witnesses say they indeed saw him and another woman leaving the scene in an Uber.

     photo BellaHadidxTrueReligionEventCampaignvBth0Q1s_nEl.jpg

    It was originally reported Jasmine was in the car with him and the driver of the car before it was wrecked. The model issued a statement to confirm she was NOT in the car with TJ when his car got wrecked.

    The former "E! News" co-host reportedly refused to cooperate with police after his lawyers tried to retrieve the vehicle. Police won't release it to him until they speak to him to find out all the details as they investigate. It's still unclear who the woman who was seen leaving the scene with TJ is, and dude has been 100% mum on social media ever since.

    Marvel's Netflix series "Luke Cage" has been cancelled after two seasons. Get those deets, plus see the disresptful Halloween billboard that features congressman Maxine Waters inside...

    Turns out, Luke Cage isn't bulletproof afterall. 

    Netflix has pulled the plug on Marvel's "Luke Cage" series after two seasons, just one week after "Iron Fist" was canceled.  One of our fave series is gone!

    “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and Netflix said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

    So why did the Harlem hero get the axe? Deadline explains:

    The pink slipping of Luke Cage was ultimately a combo of the age old Hollywood “creative differences” and the inability for the parties involved to reach a deal on how to move forward, according to sources. With a season springing from the conclusion of the June 22-launched Season 2 plotted out months ago, detailed drafts for the first half of the 10-episode projected third season were delivered to Marvel and Netflix this week.

    We hear that some execs had issues with the more developed scripts, even though the scripts strongly incorporated suggestions from both Netflix and Marvel brass.

    Add to that, the writers’ room was put on hold for a week in September as the streamer and the Disney-owned company were figuring out the mechanisms of changing the deal for the planned Luke Cage third season from the original 13 episodes to 10 episodes. It eventually escalated to behind-the-scenes turmoil in the past two days and demands for changes in creative regime. With Marvel and Netflix seemingly intractable and on different sides of the disputes, a harsh cancelation became the only viable exit strategy, it appears.

    Lead star Mike Colter has yet to react to the news (at the time of this post), however, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (Creed 2 writer) thanked everyone who worked on the series:

     

     

    “A lot memories,” Cocker tweeted. “A lot of individual thank you calls to make. Just want to say thank you to Marvel, Netflix, the best Writer’s room, cast, crew, the Midnight Hour, all those who graced the stage at Harlem’s Paradise and the most incredible fan base in the world. Forward always…”

    Several Marvel series have been axed from Netflix. Only "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," and "The Punisher" remain.

    Sucks.

    In politics...

     photo maxineposter.png

    Ugh, the disrespect!

    New thriller Halloween opened in theaters Friday and there are tons of billboards up to promote the film. However, one billboard was altered, replacing serial killer Michael Myers with congresswoman Maxine Waters.

    The billboard, on Pico Boulevard in West Hollywood, depicts a picture of congresswoman Waters holding a knife in her hand with the phrase "#Uncivil Democratas" written on it. So classless.

    Peep a video of the billboard, shared by "Empire" & "STAR" creator Lee Daniels:

    SABO, the street artist who altered the billboard, told The Hollywood Reporter "that the text he added to the advertisement is a reference to Waters telling a crowd in June to make things uncomfortable for President Donald Trump and his Cabinet members."

    During a rally over the summer, Auntie Waters said:

    “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd,” Waters said at the time. “You push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

    They must have forgotten how gutta Maxine Waters can be. She's never scared and she let everyone know that during a speech at the Families Belong Together rally in Los Angeles:

    "We have some members of Congress who are intimidated. I have no fear. I’m in this fight," she said.

    "There are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me. All I have to say is this: If you shoot me, you better shoot straight. There’s nothing like a wounded animal…They dare me to say impeach him. Today I say Impeach 45."

    This street artist TRIED it.  November 6th is coming.  VOTE.

    IG model Brittany Renner just released a tell-all book, Judge This Cover, where she details her sexcapades with seven celebrities. She used code names in the book, however, Twitter has seemingly decoded the code names and connected a few celebrity men with whom she's referring to in the book.

    For the past year I have been dedicated to bringing this vision to life. It feels like I’m finally giving birth to my baby From late nights writing at my Aunt @cowboy88cin’s kitchen table to my first book now available to purchase exclusively on AMAZON, this process has been absolutely magical and transformative. For a long time I could only see the disappointments, overlooking the lessons. Therapy changed my life and quite frankly is the only reason I was able to reflect and write this. You will find more answers turning the mirror on yourself than you will pointing a finger. To everyone who has continuously supported me every step of the way on this fine journey, I THANK YOU. I don’t come from a rich family and never liked men enough to be reliant on one...I simply invested my own money I saved up to fund a dream so you damn right I did this MY way!!!!!!! I believe you can be whatever you want to be in this life and that includes being beautiful and smart. Lastly, don’t you ever in your life underestimate me because THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER!!!

    Here's the breakdown of the possible potentials she mentions in the book:

    Evan: Flag on the play (Colin Kaepernick)

    Leon: Soul tie with a songbird (Trey Songz)

    Frank: One and Done (Drake)

    Ivan: Use your head (Tyga)

    Solomon: Malpractice (Chris Brown)

    Hector: Dancing with the Devil (Lil Uzi Vert)

    Seth: Finding Oz (Casey Therriault)

    Total Pro Sports released a summary of Colin's alleged chapter from the book that details her alleged interaction with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. She claims Colin told her to save her own money to pay her own flights to go visit him as a test to see if she was really there for him or if she was simply after his money.

    The site reports:

    “Colin was the rebound dude after Casey. According to her, she broke up with Casey because he was treating her wrong, but if I remember correctly, she broke up with Casey to be with Colin.

    “They first met in person while he was staying with white CiCi & her family (if you read any of the old threads, you’ll know who I’m talking about)

    “She took an expensive Uber ride to their house to meet him. He told her that he had only slept with 25 gals in his lifetime & she said that was a lie.

    “In true Colin form, he told her she had to pay for her own flights to see him. Convinced her that this was a test to gauge her true intentions and interest. Told her that if she was in it for the right reasons, she would save her money for flights.

    “She was his best kept secret, he hid her away like a community whore, while she actually stayed with him for days & made his bed. Gave her forehead kisses before he left for practice.

    “When it was time for her to catch her flight home, she asked when was she going to see him again. He said and she quoted “what I want to do and what I’m going to do are two different things. That’s all I’m going to say”. It went downhill from there.”

    Whew, chile. The thirst.

    It's unclear if these hoe-tales went down BEFORE or after Colin started dating HOT 97's Nessa. Let's hope before.

    As you can imagine, the Twitterverse clowned her for her THOTivities. But, she's taking it in stride. She made a joke about paying for flights recently on her Instagram:

     

    It's rumored that Brittany once dated rapper Lil Uzi Vert. She apparently thought they were monogomous, but she was sadly mistaken

    In the clip she posted to her Instagram below, she says in the recording, "You know what’s really crazy… is that when I originally got invited, I was not even going to go but it was so crazy like we were in the same city and you really weren’t that pressed to see me. He didn’t really care to spend time with me, and he didn’t even respond to my text the day that I had text you."

    Check it:

     

     

    Brittany's book is available for purchase on Amazon, but we're not sure it's worth it. There are several bad reviews, including one review that stated you can save your coins since the book her social media written out in words.

    "This book is her social media in word form, to say the least. I finished it in about two hours because it was less than 150 pages, at a 4th grade reading level, and lacked any mental stimulation. She preached and preached about the content of the book for a year and all that was found was a very insecure attention seeking girl that released her diary, and to find validation from the rest of the world to prove she’s not a ‘whore’. Yikes. I’m sure some people out there found it relatable as they were/are as naive and unneducated, but it was definitely not a book worth purchasing."

    Damn.

    Comedian/actress Amy Schumer is speaking out about the NFL and boycotting the 2019 Super Bowl. She hopped on Instagram to call out her fellow white people on their privilege and revealed she wasn't doing any Super Bowl commercials.  Because, She's with Kap.

    "Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren't kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers. Otherhow are you not complicit," she wrote.

    "I personally told my reps I wouldn't do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it's all i got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them," the actress continued.

    Thoughts?

    You can peep the full promo clip below:

    Sheree has yet to respond.

    Over the weekend, the former reality star posted a few items from her collection and folks have been bashing her over the price points:

     photo shereec3.png

    Hmm...$85 for a t-shirt with an iron on? We gues...

    Sheree has since taken the items down because now when you go on her website and look under collection, here's what's posted:

     photo shereec1.png

    Maybe Sheree should hit up her former "RHOA" co-star Kandi Burruss so she figure this thing out because right now, it's not looking good.

    After popping off on Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish, comedian Katt Williams has turned his attention to his ex-girlfriend Hazel-E. These two had a rollercoaster relationship that resulted in police raiding Hazel's home with guns looking for the troubled comedian in 2016. They ended up getting back together after that drama and broke up again. Now, the funnyman is spilling tea on why he broke up with her, while slanding her name..

     

    The Jasmine Brand reported a trscript of what he said about Hazel during an Intagram Live session. Check it below:

    Truthfully, that’s why I left her – the b*tch is a got damn atheist. I told her, ‘Before God, I was the king of the n*ggas.’ Th*s bitch said, ‘I don’t believe in God or n*ggas.’ I said, ‘B***h, if you don’t get your satanic, demonic, I-wanna-be-a-cracker in the face *ss up out here b*tch. I will call down the ghost of Sojourner Truth to walk up yo motherf***in’ street.’ What in the Harriet Tubman is this light skinned ugly b***ch talking about? How the f**k is you light skin and ugly?

    Hazel-E was ugly while I was f*cking the bitch. Soon as I leave, the b*tch nose is crooked. She got a under and over bite. The b*tch is in Dubai getting shit on. I love it. I love it, b*tch. Fellas, if your woman, goes to Dubai – you know how cleanliness is next to Godliness? Well say Du-bye to that b***ch! Du-bye! They giving them bitches 10 racks to shit on em.

    He also made claims that her boyfriend who came after him was a killer:

    “Remember she showed up with that lil’ boy that was like 19? That n*gga was a full-fledged killer and she had that n*gga out here on motherf***in red carpets and sh*t with a bow tie on. If you don’t get 17 felonies the f*ck up out of the Littlefoot premiere, you crossed the line, don’t believe in Jesus a** b*tch. Truthfully, that’s why I left her – the b*tch is a got damn atheist.”

    Yikes.

    Hazel hopped on Twitter to respond, tweeting:

     

     

    "Due to the blessings that are happening in my life, & the status of people that I have supporting me I will not dignify this low life w/ a response," she tweeted. "To live peacefully in the UAE w/the Muslims who uplift me, I will not disgrace these people in any form or fashion. #Inshallah"

    She said she wasn't going to respond, however, she responded. Peep the tweets below: 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And she confirmed she's not an atheist:

     

     

    Not sure exactly what was said here but, yeah.

    Kenya Moore celebrated her upcoming bundle of joy with a fabulous baby shower fit for royalty and all of her reality TV friends came out to show support.. Go inside her baby shower festivities inside...

    Baby Daly is almost here!

    On Saturday, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore was showered with love from friends and family as they all gathered to celebrate the upcoming arrival of her little bundle of joy in a Met Gala-themed baby shower held at The Historic Academy of Medicine at Georgia Tech.

    The reality star and her hubby Marc Daly are awaiting on the arrival of their first child together. Kenya and Marc are still remaining mum about whether they're having a boy or a girl.

     photo kenyababy2.png

    In true Kenya fashion, she had all of her guests get dressed up for the Met Gala/royalty themed bash and everyone looked the part! Her guest list included a slew of reality show stars, including her former "RHOA" co-stars Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, a pregnant Porsha Williams, and a pregnant Shamea Morton. Other guests included "Real Housewives of Potomac" star Gizelle Bryant and "Married To Medicine" stars Dr. Heavenly Kimes and Toya Bush-Harris.

    Before the shower, Kenya posted etiquette tips on her social media, specifically to those who didn't RSVP to her event.

    "If you cannot attend a monumental life changing event, it's nice to send a gift anyway," she wrote. Let's hope everyone who did attend brought a gift with them.

    Peep the baby shower flicks below:

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    "RHOA" star NeNe Leakes couldn't make the event, but she sent her love:

     

     

     

    Fans likely will not get to see all of the baby shower festivities since it has been reported Kenya isn't returning for the 11th season of "RHOA" that set to premiere in November.  Oh wells.

    A few days ago....

     

     

     

    Kenya also shared a 3D ultrasound picture of Baby Daly. Cute.
