2019 BET AWARDS: Nipsey Hussle Gets The Humanitarian Award & A Powerul Tribute, And His Parents Had Plenty To Say


 photo LaurenLondon2019BETAwardsShowOXCsLmStXZ2l_zpssrcxzovz.jpg

Nipsey Hussle's family was front and center for his tribute and Humanitarian Award, and his closest friends and fellow artists gave him proper tribute at Sunday's BET Awards.  Get into the deep messages his family brought - especially his mom - that  have everybody talking inside.

It's been only 2 months since Nipsey Hussle was murdered, and his legacy is still permeating everything, everywhere.  BET honored him posthumously with the Humanitarian Award, showcasing his strong belief in ownership, reaching back to help others, and unifying the neighborhood.

T.I. explained all of Nipsey's work that's still happening, and why he's the definition of Humanitarian:


Then Nipsey's family, including Lauren London and their son Kross, and well as Nipsey's sister, daughter Emani, grandmother  and parents.

His mom, Angelique Smith, gave a spiritual speech much like she did at his funeral, this time explaining exactly what happened at the scene of his murder minutes after.  She was there, and she says she and him were both preparing - weeks before his death - for his spirit to move on.  Her exchange with Nipsey's dad was...interesting too.


Since Neighborhood Nip  was known to bridge the neighborhood together - including the Bloods and Crips - his homie YG performed with 2 members of the Rolling 60's rocking airbrushed tees, showing off a Blood and Crip union on stage.  Plus, John Legend, DJ Khaled and Marsha Ambrosius performed the tracks they made with him.  Check it:



The whole thing had folks in their feelings.

The BET Awards was full of surprises last night, especially when it was announced that Rihanna would be in the mix. The Fenty Beauty honcho was tapped to present singing legend Mary J. Blige with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in LA last night.

Give us everything Rih!

The Bajan beauty stepped out on stage in head-to-toe leather, rocking a custom FENTY ensemble, which she coordinated with a fanny pack, Neil Lane necklaces, a diamond studded cross pendant from Loree Rodkin, and Manolo Blahnik sandals. It seems RiRI channeled her inner MJB as her 'fit def gave off vibes of the legendary singer's signature style.

Rih's hair color and style were on point as well.  Per usual.

"On behalf of all the women who came after you like myself, thank you for being you,” Rihanna said as she praised the Hip Hop/R&B Queen. “So we could feel comfortable with being ourselves.”

"And then there are the awards and the accolades. And making history as the first person ever nominated for an Oscar in an acting and music category in the same year. Happy Mary. Sad Mary. Mad Mary. No more drama Mary. Dancing Mary. We’re here for all of it."


 photo MaryJBligeBETAwards2019ShowjozTRf-u27ql.jpg

MJB went down a laundry list of names to thank - people who have been by her side throughout her illustrious career. In her speech, MJB opened up about how she's been able to stay relevant in the game for so long and her purpose in life.

“People always ask, how do I sustain and stay relevant in this industry? It’s because, although I am a leader, a queen, and a living legend. … I’m a servant as well and I’m here to serve," she said. "Being a servant is not always glamorous or popular but it’s the job and the assignment that I was given. It’s because in order to be an authority, I had to learn how to come under authority because when the glory is placed on me I give it back to God immediately. This journey journey has always been bigger than me and my mission is not only just to survive right now, it’s to thrive and continue to make history while I do it.”

Peep her full speech below:

After accepting her award...

MJB changed into a custom Duckie Confetti outfit paired with Jennifer Le thigh high boots to pay tribute to her damn self! No one can rock a Mary J. Blige like the queen herself.

As she continued her medley, MJB was joined on stage by fine a** Method Man to perform their throwback classic, "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By." Yassss!

'Free Meek' Trailer Reveals How Rapper Became Criminal Justice Reform's Poster Child + Meek Lights Up The BET Awards Stage With Khaled, Jeremih & Lil Baby


 photo meekBETAwards2.png

Meek Mill joined DJ Khaled, Jeremih and Lil Baby

on stage at the 2019 BET Awards for a turnt up performance. See the guys rock it out, plus the first trailer of the Philly rapper's upcoming "Free Meek" documentary inside...

 photo meekBETAwards5.png

Meek Mill brought Philly to this year's BET Awards when he hit the stage to perform.

DJ Khaled first appeared on stage on a white platform before the Philadelphia native appeared, along with rapper Lil Baby, and they began to perform their collaboration track, "Weather The Storm." Soon after, Jeremih hit the stage, and slowed things down a bit to perform their joint track "You Stay."

 photo meekBETAwards3.png

The "Dreams & Nightmares" rapper was nominated for two major awards, Album of the Year (Cardi B. won) and Best Male Hip Hop Artist (Nipsey Hussle won).



 photo meekBETAwards4.png

Peep his performance below: 


 photo meekBETAwards1.png

In addition to his awards show performance, the first trailer for his upcoming documentary "Free Meek" premiered during the show.

"Free Meek" is a five-episode series - executive produced by Jay-Z - that chronicles Meek's struggles with the unjust criminal justice system. The docu-series will explore Meek's original arrest and it'll also address the systemic corruption that sends so many young, black men like Meek to prison.

As you know, the Championships rapper was sentenced to two-to-four years in prison for violating his probation in late 2017. The 32-year-old rapper has been on probation since the age of 19, and that arrest wasn't his first time getting thrown behind bards for violating his probation.



After his story made headlines and he was released, Meek became the poster child for criminal justice reform. Since his release, he has been using his platform to speak out about the crooked criminal justice system and has teamed up with bigwigs like Jay-Z, Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin, CNN commentator Van Jones, and several billionaires to launch REFORM Alliance, a criminal justice reform organization chaired by himself and his homie Michael Rubin.

Watch the "Free Meek" trailer below:

"Free Meek" premieres August 9th via Amazon Prime Video. Will you be watching?




It seems Meek had one too many last night and texted his mom and sister he was going to give them a million dollars. He reneged on the offer the next morning, but promised to lace them with something good:

Tyler Perry Delievered A Whole WORD That'll Shake Your Spirit While Accepting BET’s Ultimate Icon Award

Tyler Perry brought a WORD with him as he accepted the Ultimate Icon Award during the BET Awards. Get into his speech inside that had us ready to hit the Woah and a praise dance...

Leave it to Tyler Perry to take us to chuch!

The filmmaker delivered a whole sermon while accepting the Ultimate Icon Award during Sunday's BET Awards that went down at the Microsoft Theater in LA.

 photo TylerPerryBETAwards2019Show9o3D2g3_IOVl.jpg

Taraji P. Henson was tapped to present the award to the Hollywood writer, producer, and director. And she was the perfect choice. She has worked with Tyler in a number of films, including The Family That Preys (2008), I Can Do Bad All By Myself (2009) and Acrimony (2018).

In fact, Mr. Perry was the Hollywood figure who made sure Taraji was being paid what she deserved.

“In a time when my counterparts were making way more money than I was, Tyler Perry was the first to pay me my exact worth,” she shared with the audience. "A black man did that and that means the world to me. Tyler, you are a brilliant visionary that embodies what the African-American dream truly is. You sir, are an icon living."


"The Haves & The Have Nots" actress Tika Sumpter co-signs Taraji's comments:




After hugging and kissing Taraji, "The Haves & The Have Nots" creator started his speech by sharing a story about what it was like growing up with a father who used to beat his mother. He said at the age of 5-years-old he would imitate the women his mother played cards with every week after his father would get done beating her and it would make her laugh. He said there was power in her laughter that he didn't realize until he got older.

 photo TylerPerry2019BETAwardsPressRoom9jkA_Xy8Mlrl.jpg

The famed director shared another childhood story about starting a new school and to get there, he had to walk past pimps, prostitutes and through a graveyard. There was a man he ran into that needed help crossing a six-lance road on the way to school. He connected that story to his mother about how he "helped her cross" from the pain to a moment of laughter.

 photo TylerPerry2019BETAwardsPressRoomEduk8sqi3ZOl.jpg

"When I started hiring Taraji, Viola Davis and Idris Elba, they couldn't get jobs in this town but God blessed me to be in a position to be able to hire them. I was trying to help somebody cross," he said during his rousing speech.

Perry was determined to keep helping others when he opened his own studio in Atlanta. He said he built the studio in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods to show young, black kids that if he can do it, so can they!

“When I built my studio, I built it in a neighborhood that is one of the poorest black neighborhoods in Atlanta so that young black kids could see that a black man did that, and they can do it too. I was trying to help somebody cross. The studio was once a Confederate Army base, which meant that there was Confederate soldiers on that base, plotting and planning on how to keep 3.9 million Negroes enslaved. Now that land is owned by one Negro.”

Yassss! Reclaiming his power.

 photo BETAwards2019ArrivalsDESvKCdkmyel.jpg

Perry also mentoned the difference in what he's doing vs. the #OscarsSoWhite movement:

“It’s all about trying to help somebody cross. While everybody else is fighting for a seat at the table, talking about ‘#OscarsSoWhite, #OscarsSoWhite,’ I said, ‘Y’all go ahead and do that. While you’re fighting for a seat at the table, I’ll be down in Atlanta building my own.’ Because what I know for sure is that if I could just build this table, God will prepare it for me in the presence of my enemies.”

A. word. We do believe there's room to do both, though.

Check out his full speech below:

On Twitter last night, viewers reacted to Perry's #OscarsSoWhite comment, leaving creator of the movement, April Reign, messages:

2019 BET AWARDS: Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus Take Us (& Their Horses) To The 'Old Town Road' + X Is STILL Dominating With New EP

Lil Nas X brought Billy Ray Cyrus to the 2019 BET Awards to perform their viral hit track, "Old Town Road." Get into their country trap performance and deets on the infectious song taking over the Billboard Music Charts inside...

 photo LilNasX2019BETAwardsShowUN58PTUADZwl.jpg

Lil Nas X is arguably one of the hottest artists out right now. The Billboard Charts confirms that. More on that later.

Last night, Lil Nas X made his BET Awards debut with country singing legend Bill Ray Cyrus by his side for a standout performance of their remixed song, "Old Town Road." It's a viral sensation that's also taking over the music charts, despite Billboard's "shade."

Before taking the stage, the unexpected duo rode up on the blue carpet at the Microsoft Theater on horseback. The stage was transformed into a saloon and when the audience got their first glimpse of Nas X busting through the doors, they went wild.

"Old Towne Road" sparked controversy when it landed on Billboard's "Hot Country Songs," but was pulled a week later. Billboard made claims that the song didn't “embrace enough elements of today’s country music," but we all know why they said that. Hmph.

The "Old Town Road" rapper - who released his new 7 EP recently - rocked a custom blue Pyer Moss ensemble with white boots and a cowboy hat. According to Hits Daily Double, 7 is expected to enter the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1.

Also, "Old Town Road" doesn't show any signs of slowing up. It's been sitting at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the 12 consecutive week! He's determined to not be a 1 hit wonder, and we're certainly not mad at that.  Congrats!

MESSY: Chicago PD Releases Body Cam Footage Of Jussie Smollet With 'Noose' Around His Neck After Alleged Attack + Osundairo Brothers Recorded In Taxi Cab


 photo jussienoose2.png

Chicago Police have released tons of body cam footage from their investigation into Jussie Smollett's claim that he was attacked. We've now got video of Jussie in his apartment with police with the noose around his neck, The Osundairo brothers allegedly in back of taxi just before attack, and more.  Check it out inside...

 photo jussienoose1.png

The Chicago Police are on Jussie Smollett's a**!

Days after a judge ruled for a special prosecutor to re-investigate Jussie's case, the Chicago Police Department releases more than 1,000 files from the investigation, which includes more than 70 hours of video related to the alleged racist/homophobic attack.

The footage from the body cameras worn by police show what happened when they arrived to Jussie's Chicago apartment on January 29th. As you know, the former "Empire" actor called police after he was allegedly attacked by two men wearing masks. Authorities believe he staged the attack.

The footage first shows police speaking with Jussie's creative director, Frank Gatson, who was pleading with them to not make a big deal about the situation due his star power.

“He is, like, a star," Frank said. “He works on the show ‘Empire.' So, I think — He doesn’t want that to be a big deal, you understand what I’m saying?” he continued. “But to me it’s kind of messed up, and the thing that bothers me the most — and kind of makes me emotional — is they put a makeshift noose around his f*cking neck.”

Soon after, Chicago PD entered Jussie's apartment and you see him standing in the kitchen with a thin, white rope tied around his neck in the shape of a noose.

“Do you want to take it off or anything?," one of the officers asked.

“Yeah, I do. I just wanted you all to see it,” Smollett responded.

After he's informed that they are recording, Jussie asked the officers to turn their body cameras off.

Peep the clip below:

Also in the data dump, one of the brothers - who was once a suspect in the investigation - texted Jussie with well wishes the day after the alleged attack.

“Bruh say it ain’t true,” Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo wrote. “I’m praying for speedy recovery. Sh*t is wild.”

Covering their tracks? Possibly, especially if they knew police would check Jussie's phone afterwards.  Abel and his brother Ola Osundairo were detained as police investigated the alleged hate crime. Eventually, they brothers were released days after they were detained.

In another video, the Osundairo brothers are shown in the back of a taxi cab and one them is seen wearing a hoodie tightly around his face, seemingly trying to keep a low profile, on the night of the alleged attack. In the clip, they pay the cab driver, and then hop out. Police say the Osundairos used taxis to get to and from the alleged crime scene.

Peep the clip below:

Hunty.... Chicago PD knew they were being messy releasing this.

Jussie Smollett - who celebrated a birthday a few days ago - was brought up on 16 felony counts of lying to police, but they were eventually dropped by Cook County prosecutors.

Just a few days ago, Judge Michael Toomin approved for a special prosecutor to re-investigate the case. Smollett and Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx - the first African American woman to lead the office - could be in BIG trouble. Once the special prosecutor is appointed, he/she would be allowed to bring NEW charges against the “Empire” star IF there are “reasonable grounds” to do so. Yikes.

[VIDEO] Wendy Williams' Son Kevin Jr. Pleads NOT Guilty In Assault Case Involving His Father, Case Continued


 photo wendyson-new-IG.png

Wendy Williams' son, Kevin Jr., was in court this morning for his alleged assault against his father, Keving Hunter Sr. He pleaded not guilty. Find out why the case is being continued inside...

Wendy Williams' son Kevin Hunter Jr. had his day in court this morning.

The 18-year-old went before a judge and pleaded not guilty in his assault case that involves his father, Kevin Hunter Sr. You'll recall, Kevin Jr. was arrested last month after he got into a physical altercation with Wendy's estranged husband in a store parking lot near their old New Jersey home.

 photo kevinjrmugshot.png

It was previously reported Kevin Sr. allegedly put his son in the headlock and Kevin Jr. punched him in the nose to break free. Cops revealed they were investigating the "incident" and they apparently found Kevin Jr. at fault and arrested him. It's reported the fight started when Kevin Sr. urged his son to carve his own path to success and that he needed to do so without handouts from his mother. It was originally reported they got into it over Kevin Sr.'s request for spousal support.

Kevin Sr. does not want to press charges, but because it's a domestic incident, prosecutors often press charges regardless. The prosecutor asked for more time so he could review the case, and it was continued. The prosecutor believes the case would be resolved at the next hearing, so it sounds like a plea deal may be reached.

Both Wendy and Kevin Sr. showed up at court today. They were reportedly sitting outside in a car outside the courthouse. Sources tell TMZ Wendy and Kevin were advised it was unnecessary for them to go inside because the case was continued.

Wendy reportedly told a friend, "There's still love between us, regardless of the divorce," adding that she and Kevin Sr. are still "friends." Oh? Interesting. She said they'll all "work through this" and will maintain a relationship grounded in friendship.

As you know, Wendy pulled the plug on their divorce back in April after it was reported that Kevin Sr. fathered a baby with his alleged mistress Sharina Hudson.

Watch Kevin Jr. go before the judge below:

The Tristan Thompson x Jordyn Woods Drama Is More Ridiculous Than Ever + Kim's 'White Savior' A-- Comments + New Boohoo Collection From Jordy


The Tristan Thompson drama with Jordyn Woods is going to unfold on the next "Keeping Up With Kardashians" episode, and it's centered around how Khloe Kardashian dealt with it in the aftermath. Meanwhile, Jordyn is securing another bag with a new Boohoo collection. Everything inside...

Part 1 of the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" mid-season episode was many things. And part two is going to follow suit it seems.  Khloe reveals Khloe Kardashian's reaction after she learned something went down between her daughter's father, Tristan Thompson, and her sister's friend, Jordyn Woods. In the clip, Khloe receives a text from the Cleveland Cavaliers baller following the scandal making headlines.

In the text, he tells her she "deserved a spa day."

"Shut the f*ck up!," Khloe barks at the phone.

"My family was ruined!" Khloe yells. "I'm not just a TV show. Like, this is my life."

Girl, since when hasn't your life been a tv show? Just about as long as Tristan Thompson has been community peen.

Family friend/fashion mogul Kimora Lee Simmons surprisingly makes a cameo, telling her, "You cannot allow this kind of disrespect."

Sigh, Kimora.

During another fit, Khloe yells, F*ck these hoes!" These f*cking b*tches think they can f*ck our men!"

Mad at the woman but not mad at....nevermind. That "our" men comment is....interesting as well.

Also, North West makes a cameo in the promo, dancing it up during her dad, Kanye West's, Sunday Services.

Peep the sneak peek below:

But get this, Khloe and Tristan weren't even officially in a relationship at the time of the scandal. Supposedly.

"When the Jordyn drama happened, Khloe and Tristan were not in a proper relationship," a source told PEOPLE. "They had not been for weeks. They didn't even spend Valentine's Day together, which is right before he messed around with Jordyn."

We believe it.  Many had thought they were broken up as we hadn't seen them together in a while at that point.

The source went on to say that it was "very difficult" for the "Revenge Body" host to find out about the situation, however, it's what "made her realize Tristan would never change." Oh, THAT'S what made her realize?  We guess chile....

Here's more of the drama:


So, about Part 1 of the midseason finale...

Khloe called her sisters to confirm that Jordyn admitted she "made out" with Tristan at a house party. She blamed him for kissing her and said she had been "naive" about the situation.

On the phone with her sisters, Khloe said she could believe Jordyn would do something like this, especially since she knows everything she's gone through with the NBA player. Kylie agreed.

Then, Kim chimed, "Jordyn provides for her whole family off of what [Kylie] has given her, and the disrespect of this — she has to know that this is a problem."

The Internet gathered her on social media, saying her comments are an example of her "white savior complex." The comment was trash and folks let her know it. Especially since she provided not even a corner of a receipt showing when and how the well off Woods family - who have been going to the same schools and living in the same neighborhood as Will & Jada Smith's family since Jordyn was a toddler - ever needed Kylie to sustain themselves.

Peep the tweets:

A word.

Also on Sunday night's episode, Khloe made shocking comments about Tristan threatening to kill himself following the kissing scandal with Jordyn Woods.

Folks in Tristan's camp claim that's NOT true. They claim the 28-year-old NBA baller was blindsided by the claims she made on the show and felt she “exploited” his comments.

“He says he told Khloe he didn’t want to live without her, but that didn’t mean he wanted to kill himself,”a source told RadarOnline.

“He is pissed off because a ton of people, including his family members and NBA execs, are reaching out to him very worried.”

Yikes. We could tell by the fact this was his umpteenth time cheating publicly AND him doing vacay a day or so later with a new chick - that he was unbothered AF.


Jordyn is still flourishing out in these fashion streets.

Following her initial Boohoo offering in 2016, the 21-year-old is back for another collection. She co-designed the Jordyn Woods x Boohoo collection which features a range of size inclusive ready-to-wear pieces like colorful blazers, trendy jumpsuits, matching two-piece sets, and high-slit dresses. Her 60-piece collection ranges in sizes 2 to 26 and retails for $15 to $60. It drops June 26th.

Congrats, Jordyn!

The NERVE.  While Carmelo Anthony was writing a sappy Instagram birthday post to his "wife" LaLa Anthony yesterday, he was doing so from a yacht in France...with another woman.  The receipts inside.

LaLa seemed to be having the best birthday ever yesterday, posting up a bomb new photoshoot in celebration and sharing all the sweet messages from her celeb friends.  The "Power" actress also had a big birthday party last night.  The one person we noticed was missing - her NBA baller husband Carmelo. Now we know it's because he was parlaying in the south of France with a new mystery woman.

Well well well.  He certainly has a type, we'll say that.  We checked, and this is not the woman alleged to be his mistress turned alleged side baby's mother, Mia Burke.  But they certainly look similar.

The two were definitely not trying to hide, and seemed extra comfortable with each other while yachting it up.  Carmelo was also seen hitting the ocean with some water toys while she looked on from the boat giving him a flirtatious wave.

Maybe Melo & La have some sort of agreement between the two.  Something tells us this is probably not the case, but who knows.

As for why Carmelo is in France in the first place, he and several other NBA ballers, along with Michael Jordan, are there for Jumpman23 events:


It's interesting.  Carmelo and LaLa seemed to be trying to reconcile after his 2017 cheating and "alleged" side baby scandal.  The two definitely split up for a while, but over the last few months have been taking a few vacays and a few IG pics together, and hitting up a few events together as a couple. The still haven't outright said "We're back on", but it certainly looked to be headed that way.

LaLa posted a sweet Father's Day message for him last weekend, and Melo shared this birthday message for her yesterday where he told her "I'm lucky to have you as my wife."


A WHOLE mess.  We hope La got her entire life at her birthday festivities last night.  She deserves it.

Cardi B. Drops Court-Inspired Video For 'Press', Just After Pulling Up In Court For Her Real Life Assault Case

Ding Dong! Cardi B. is holding MAJOR court in the courtroom in her brand new "Press" video. And her fans are already calling it legendary. Watch inside.

She's arrived. And she's trying to stay out of jail - both on screen and for real for real.

Directed by Cardi herself and Jora Frantzis, the visuals for her new single "Press" were all about her flexing her creative skills while playing off her real life situation. We doubt the judge and prosecutors in her ongoing assault case are here for this type of "artistry", but something tells us she gives zero f's. Watch below:


Cardi's stylist, Kollin Carter, chose that white Viktor and Rolf suit as the perfect over-the-top interpretation of the new courtroom queen. The raptress also thanked everyone else involved:


As for the case she just received umpteen indictments in, Cardi pulled up in Queen County Criminal Court yesterday in New York to plead Not Guilty to all 12 charges.

She, along with two other defendants in the case, Tawana “RemyRojaLaPerla” Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey “AstonMartinChuck” Bush, are accused of organizing an assault on two strippers at Angel nightclub whom Cardi believed were sleeping with her husband Offset.

The Associated Press reports:

“Not guilty, sir, honor,” said the rapper dressed in a dark blue and light pink pantsuit with her hair tinted blue as she pleaded in state court to two counts of attempted assault and various misdemeanor charges, including harassment, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and reckless endangerment.

She didn’t speak to reporters as she entered and left the courthouse, but waved at a small crowd of fans who shouted her name and took video on their cellphones."

As you recall, an irate Cardi was seen on video at the club the night the two strippers claim they were attacked. Reportedly, a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.

Offset was also seen at the bar speaking to at least one of them.

SUSPEND THE HBIC? PLEASE! Nene Leakes Says She Has NOT Been Suspended From 'RHOA' Filming, Talks Spin-Off


 photo nenenotleaving-IG-shutter.png

NeNe Leakes finally addresses those rumors that claim she was suspended from filming the first half of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Season 12. Deets inside...

Just a few weeks ago, rumors started circulating that the self proclaimed HBIC of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" had been suspended from filming the first half of the upcoming season.

There were conflicting reports as to why NeNe Leakes wouldn't be filming for the beginning of the 12th season. One site alleged she was refusing to film because of Kenya Moore's return. Another publication made claims producers FORCED her to sit out after her insane altercation with the camera crew that sent one person to the hospital with missing teeth.

Now, the Swagg Boutique owner - who recently opened a store in the DMV area - is putting the rumors to rest. She claims she has NOT nor has she ever been suspended from filming.

“I have never been suspended,” NeNe told radio host Vic Jagger on the Majic Radio Show. “And I am on Season 12. Thank you very much.”

So, if NeNe is telling the truth, viewers won't have to worry about not seeing one of their faves the entire season.

The 51-year-old reality star also set the record straight about a rumored spin-off series.

“No, that’s not true,” NeNe confirmed. “If I’ve gotten a spinoff, they haven’t told me yet, and I need them to tell me. I haven’t filmed a thing. I read that, too. If I had a spinoff, I’d be happily telling you.”

There you have it.

By the way, a rep for Nene confirmed to Page Six she WAS delayed in filming the upcoming season, but that was due to contract negotiations. They claim there is no drama going on behind-the-scenes. 

Listen to the "RHOA" star clear up the rumors (at the 9-minute mark below), plus what it was like helping her husband Gregg Leakes beat cancer, the girls on the show and more:

Also, NeNe tweeted this message below this morning:

And yesterday, she posted this: 



What's tea, sis?

Since calling it quits with Karrueche, Chris Brown has been romantically linked to women who are a spitting image of his ex. He was last linked to Ammika Harris, especially when he started being more public with their situationship. They were spotted out together a few times and fans have caught them flirting hard on Instagram.

Now, he's spending time with a new chick, who also looks like a Karrueche 2.0.

The Grammy Award winning singer was seen leaving Bootsy Bellows nightclub in West Hollywood recently. And he wasn't alone. He drove off with a chick named Diamond Brown in the passenger seat of his glow-in-the-dark 2019 Lamborghini Huracan.

You can see her bringing a cake out at the 0:49-second mark below:

Here are more flicks of Diamond:

So it seems the "Loyal" singer has been spending much of his free time with Diamond recently.

A few days ago, Breezy brought Diamond with him to turn up at the pre-BET Awards festivities with Diddy's sons Chrisitan & Justin Combs. You can see her chilling, standing right in front of Chris:

While Ammika (above) was busy posting coupledom shots of herself on Breezy to wish him a Happy Birthday, he had Diamond at his 30th birthday bash a few months ago:

There were rumors that Breezy and Ammika broke up, however, she's still promoting his upcoming album Indigo on social media:

The "Wooble" singer sparked pregnancy rumors when he called Ammika his "BM" on social media:

No word on if she's actually pregnant with his baby or not. Word on the curb is that Diamond was liking comments on social media that said Ammika isn't pregnant.

Hmm...Breezy surely has a TYPE.

A post shared by CHRIS BROWN (@chrisbrownofficial) on


The Royalty singer is worried private information about his friends could be leaked if he hands over his phone to the woman who sued him over an alleged rape at his home. He's refusing to turn his phone over as evidence for the sake of keeping his celeb friends' info underwraps.

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Brown admits to the court he has no plans to hand over the number to the Jane Doe suing him.

The singer believes Doe wants to take his cell phone number and then subpoena his phone records for everyone he may have called during the timeframe. The "Indigo" singer believes if he turned over his number he will have to immediately change it. Brown claims to only hand over the number to his close friends and family.

A judge has yet to rule on whether he has to hand over his cell phone number.

The woman claims Breezy laced her with drugs, including molly, cocaine and marijuana, before his friend, Lloyd Grissom, allegedly sexually assaulted her in Chris' Tarzana home back in February 2017.
