Michael B. Jordan Is PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, And, Yes

0
0

Michael B. Jordan is officially the Sexiest Man Alive, and um, YES.  Get into his PEOPLE magazine cover crowning him king of fineness and what he says about his new throne.

Not many will disagree that Michael B. Jordan is fine AF (even though we have peeped some of y'all that "don't see it for him", or whatever).  So it's no surprise that People magazine has realized it too.

The 33-year-old Creed and Black Panther star says "the women in his family are definitely proud of this one", and we can see why:

 

Michael posted the cover as well saying, "My grandma lookin down talkin bout “that’s my baby” Thanks @People for naming me 2020’s #SexiestManAlive! Order a copy!".

We wonder what his rumored boo thing thinks.

Next up for Michael (besides another Creed installment) is him leading a Tom Clancey series as a former Navy SEAL-turned-CIA operative in the flick Without Remorse.  He says he also hopes "to be maybe directing a little more, acting less, producing a lot more" soon.

He told the mag about his future goals:

"Just growing, whatever the next evolution of me is," he says. "Hopefully a family by then, I’m going to throw that in the universe. I want to make an impact all over the world and not just through the roles that I play."

 

He gushed about the ladies in his fam saying, "When my grandmother was alive, it was something that she collected, and then my mom naturally reads it a lot and my aunts as well. This is one that they’re definitely going to have a special place for."

Michael's a big supporter of making sure inclusivity is top of mind in his own projects, and also has been on the front lines of protests during this lock down.  He says he's been trying to ignore the controversy that comes from it though:

"You could have all the good intentions in the world, and you’ll still get controversy or some type of negativity thrown your way," he says. "Sometimes you’ve just got to trust the universe, you know? You’ve got to just believe in yourself and do what you feel is really right. I think that adds up."

 

Michael hit up Jimmy Kimmel last night in a hazmat suit to announce his big news:

 

And you can check out his whole video interview below:

He dishes more on his mom, love for anime (maybe THIS is why he and Meg Thee Stallion hit it off?), and snacks over on PEOPLE.

Boosie Allegedly Says He's 'Not Doing Well' After Getting Shot, Manager Shoots Down Foot/Leg Amputation Rumors

0

Rapper Lil Boosie is still recovering from getting shot several days ago, and apparently, things aren't looking good.  Maybe not as bad as people are saying, though. His manager clears the air about the amputation rumors, inside.

The block has been hot in Houston and Dallas for weeks now. And the shocking shooting death of Dallas rapper MO3 last week, who was also signed to Boosie's Trill Entertainment, brought friction in Texas to a boiling point. 

While rumors ran rampant about who shot Mo3 on Interstate 90 and ran him down in broad daylight, Boosie made it clear it's Trill Ent. over everything.  And it seems folks haven't been taking too kindly to that - especially MO3's alleged enemies.

When Boosie headed to Dallas over the weekend for the city's balloon release in MO3's honor, Boosie's sprinter van was shot up - in broad daylight once again.  Despite his sprinter being bullet proof, he was struck in the leg and rushed to the hospital.

According to reports:

 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Boosie was shot at in Dallas Saturday, after rolling through town in what we're told was a sprinter van near a strip mall called Big T's Plaza. Yesterday evening, he stopped by another venue to pay his respects to recently murdered Dallas rapper Mo3 -- who was a friend and collaborator of his.

 

At some point, somebody opened fire on the vehicle and one of the bullets struck Boosie in the leg. We're told the shooters booked it, and Boosie and co. made their way to a hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound below the knee.

 

At first, his team was seemingly trying to hide the fact he was hit.  Then news from hospital sources confirmed he was definitely injured, but seemingly the situation was non life threatening.

But that was about the extent of the good news as he had to go through multiple leg surgeries. 

Boosie - from an alleged acocunt of his - posted to his social media that he's "not doing that good":

 

Rumors then began swirling on social media that he needed a leg or foot amputation, due to his diabetes condition that often causes life threatening clotting.

Boosie's manager Louis posted that those amputation reports are false.

There's also unverified IG accounts claiming to be Boosie - that popped up after he was banned - claiming he said he's "ok but needs operations that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars."

TMZ gave an update as well saying he did get surgeries, but his legs and feet are still in tact:

 

Boosie Badazz went under the knife after getting shot in the leg, but surgeons didn't remove his foot ... and he's already home from the hospital. Sources close to Boosie tell TMZ ... he did NOT get his foot amputated -- contrary to reports -- but he did have a couple of surgeries for his gunshot wound.

Our sources say Boosie had a procedure to remove bullet fragments, and he had some screws put in to make sure his foot properly heals. Boosie has diabetes, which led to speculation about potential amputation, but we're told the only medical decisions in relation to his diabetes had to do with his pre-surgery diet.

 

He's staying off his feet, but doing features still though:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hopefully folks calm down with all the shooting and choosing of sides.

WINNING 'WAP': Megan Thee Stallion's 'Body' AMAs Performance - She 'Bodied That, Ate It Up, Then Gave It Back', Cops Best Rap/Hip-Hop Song Award

0

Body ody ody ody ody ody ody....

 

Meg Thee Stallion was giving VERY much Stallion vibes for her big American Music Awards performance last night.  And her looks throughout the night as she took home a win - *chef's kiss*.  Celebrate with the Hottie Captain and watch how she shook ish up inside.

It's been a YEAR.  So it's time for some Good News - which is the name of Meg's debut album that dropped on Friday.  Her rollout has been pretty much perfection, given we're in a pandemic.  The cover of GQ, bomb visuals, an ish talking intro like "Shots Fired" where she gives her alleged shoooter Tory Lanez and her (ex) bestie Kelsey the business, and now a big night at the AMAs. 

The Houston Hottie made a bold entrance into last night's AMAs in L.A. wearing a long, textured off-the-shoulder pink dress paired with Jessica Rich Macy Mule Heels ($215) in Silver, styled by BROOKELYN STYLES.

She came thru to do some things: Delivering a bomb performance of her new single “Body” and to take home the win for ‘Best Rap/Hip-Hop’ song for her feature on Cardi B’s “WAP.”

The performance had folks in awe, which is becoming a standard these days when it comes to Meg:

She commented about the performance saying, "Look at how I bodied that ate it up then gave it back #AMAS".

Consult your orthopedic doctor first before trying this ish.  Don't play yourself.

 

She switched into this neon green number to take home her award with a cute acceptance speech aout unapologetically loving her body and curves. Cardi B. - who also won this award - made history last night as the first person to win Best Hip Hop Artist two years in a row, but had to skip out this year for a dentist appointment. 

While COVID-19 numbers are rising across the country, there was still a limited audience in attendance 'in small groups, from the same families'.  So Meg had somewhat of a live audience to give all this fabness to:

 

 

 

In case you missed the official "Body" video, starring AMAs host Taraji P. Henson, our curvy crush Tabria Majors, Blac Chyna and more, check it below:

 

We love to see it.

Everybody's Weirdly Coming For Megan Thee Stallion: Ex Bestie Kelsey & Chromazz Drop Diss Tracks, Meg Responds

0
0

Megan Thee Stallion and her now ex bestie Kelsey Nicole have been at each others' necks ever since that night Meg got shot after leaving Kylie Jenner's house, but the masses have been confused on why. Meg's "Shots Fired" track and Kelsey's "Bussin Back" response might be shedding some light on the drama.  And Kelsey's not the only one coming for Meg....

 

What's REALLY good with folks?  Meg seems to not bother anyone, while bothering EVERYONE.  While fighting toxic masculinity and misogynoir ever since she hit the scene, and even moreso after she named Tory Lanez as her alleged shooter, "rappers" and friends are flipping on her too.

Kelsey Nicole - her friend from college who turned into her day 1 fan and bestie always by her side, in all the videos, and all over Meg's social media - has been giving her side of that wild night that Megan got shot.  It's been unclear why she and Meg seemingly fell out - unfollowing each other and taking subliminal disses at each other - after that night.  Then, rumors began flying about Kelsey maybe feeling some type of way about Tory and Meg because she allegedly was messing with Tory first. Other rumors claimed she's simply jealous of her bestie's career that has been flourishing despite all the hate.

When Meg dropped her debut studio album Good News, she kicked ish off with a bang, going in on both Kelsey and Tory on the intro track "Shots Fired."  Listen above.

Weeks before Meg dropped her album, Kelsey was on IG happily hanging with Meg's sometimes nemesis, 300 Entertainment label founder Carl Crawford. It's interesting, since Kelsey was vocal in defending Meg back when Carl was trying to hem her up in her contract and was publicly airing her out about a year ago.

We guess the enemy of your enemy is your friend?

Now, Kelsey's popping back after she heard "Shots Fired".

After going on IG Live where she accused Meg of smashing a man she was smashing (folks think she's talking about Tory) and also accusing her of being a bad friend, she released her own song.  If you want to call it that.

 

 

Meg previously alluded to Kelsey taking money to stay quiet when folks were asking why Kelsey wasn't defending her as rumors flew that Meg wasn't really shot. Kelsey responded about that, and rapped that if she was responsible for pulling the trigger, it would have been a murder. 

Lawd.  Listen below:

 

Meg took to Twitter and IG with these messages right after the track was released :

What a mess.

Kelsey's not the only one coming for Meg. A Toronto rapper named CHROMAZZ (yeah, this is our first time hearing about her too) recently dropped a diss track entitled "Marcus Thee Stallion." We're not here for calling black women - especially brown skin black women who don't fall into your "exotical" typicalities - masculine. Not in the least. And it's quite gross of another woman with that "exotical privilege" to do this out of the blue to a black woman.

Of course, it was a clout chasing effort to get attention for her twerking in a bikini while calling Meg every name in the book.

This is what happens when folks make anybody and everybody feel comfortable enough to come into the culture and disrespect black women. 

Go figure.

It's been a tumultuous year for Meg - losing her mother and grandmother and navigating this new landscape alone - and we're here for the continuous glow up she deserves.

THANKSGIVING COUPLEDOM: Michael B. Jordan & Lori Harvey Jet To ATL Together For The Holiday + Romeo Miller Reveals His HoliBae

0

The Holidays always make a relationship status clear, don't they?  Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey raised some eyebrows with their apparent coupledom, and Romeo Miller and others show off their Holibaes.

You can think you and bae are a thing, but whether you actually spend a Holiday together makes it a little more clear.  And folks just made it known - they're definitely a thing.

 

Lori Harvey is doing what needs to be done when it comes to casual dating, and we love to see it. After dating Future and Diddy this past year and a half, she and The Sexiest Man Alive, Michael B. Jordan - who knew?! - seemingly spent the Holiday together in Atlanta where she and The Harveys live.  They were spotted hopping off a Delta flight together the day before Thanksgiving, so despite being masked and hooded up, they knew it was a chance the public would peep them on a commercial flight. So that tells us they're at least semi-ready for this to be public.

Michael's been tied to several other women recently, but it looks like Lori is who he's spending Holidays with.  Hmph.

Neither posted each other to their social media - yet - but Lori showed all the family time she was having on Thanksgiving. It's unclear if she and Michael spent actual Thanksgiving Day together, but we wouldn't be surprised if they did.

 

Listen...

 

 

Romeo Miller may have found his Juliet.  The "Growing Up Hip Hop" star must be over his crush on Angela Simmons and has officially moved on.  He posted up his new bae Drew Sangster, saying he was thankful he got to spend Thanksgiving with her yesterday.

 

Well aren't they cute...

 

We've got Jhene Aiko & Big Sean and more couples boo'd up for Thanksgiving in the gallery below!

Former NBA player Nate Robinson got knocked out during his boxing debut, which unleashed a plethora of memes and clownery. However, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather and former NBA star Gilbert Arenas don’t find it funny. More inside…

Former NBA baller Nate Robinson, 36, signed up to make his celebrity boxing debut against YouTube star Jake Paul, 23, inside the Staples Center Saturday night. The match was the pre-event to the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones main event.

However, the former NBA Slam Dunk champion suffered a devastating loss when he was KNOCKED OUT during the second round of the highly anticipated match.

Below is the KO that caused a frenzy on social media shortly after it happened:

Yikes!

Fans and celebs – including two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry - quickly hopped on social media to react to the devastating blow, clowning the former point guard for getting knocked out:

Steph’s tweets to Nate before the fight were positive:

”Hold it down,” Steph tweeted Nate.

”Gonna shock the world bro,” Nate responded before the fight. After the KO, Steph responded to Nate’s tweet:

”I see no lies,” Steph tweeted after the match. Savage.

Several other NBA ballers and former players, including Nick Young, Paul Pierce& Dikembe Mutombo, chimed in after the KO:

And so did other professional athletes like NFL stars Patrick Mahomes, Von Miller& more:

The memes are relentless:

 

Nate is also the subject of a viral challenge dubbed the #naterobinsonchallenge. Sighs.

Following the fight, Nate hopped on IG to let everyone know he was OK and that he was thankful for the well wishes and support:

 

Now, undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather is defending the former Celtics player, asking folks to quit kicking the man while he’s already down.

 

"Nate, I’m proud of you and I will always stand behind all my brothers," Mayweather wrote in his defense."I will never kick my brother when he’s down."

Former NBA baller Gilbert Arenas also showed him some love on social media:

 

"a great ass whooping by someone is what makes a champion," Gilbert wrote."lick ur wounds, watch what u did wrong, watch what u did right,adjust,study becuz it's never where u start it's where u finish," he continued.

Can't say we saw THESE two being the voices of reason in this.  But, 2020.

Hopefully, Nate bounces back from this! His ego is likely more bruised than anything.

TRUE Kitchen + Kocktails Restaurant RESPONDS To Twerk Drama, Shares Video Of What Set The Owner OFF!

0
0

A Dallas restaurant is receiving backlash after a video of the owner scolding customers for twerking went viral. Now, the restaurant is pulling out receipts to show what happened before things escalated. Was he wrong? Watch the clips and decide inside…

When twerking goes wrong?

Listen, there is a time and a place for everything. So, what may seem innocent and harmless to you may be the total opposite to someone else.  Even if that someone else seemingly created the envoronment for that very "offense".

Over the weekend, some customers dining at a Dallas restaurant got a little too turned up! Apparently, the customers were twerking and dancing while standing on furniture during their meals, which resulted in the owner going off…on EVERYBODY.

TRUE Kitchen + Kocktails is trending on all social media platforms today after a video of the restaurant’s owner popping off on patrons for twerking was uploaded to Twitter. Here’s the clip that everyone is discussing:

“All this twerking shit, don’t bring it here because we’re a restaurant,” the owner said in the video. “If you wanna do it, get the f*ck out my restaurant. Don’t do it again. I don’t want to hear it if you don’t like it, get out because I don’t need your money.

Sheesh! The owner was fed up. And now, the restaurant is sharing video of the moments that led up to his tongue lashing.

”In response to the numerous comments and postings on social media I will share a bit of detail associated with our guests twerking, being asked to stop, being addressed, and asked to leave TRUE Kitchen + Kocktails,” the restaurant’s Facebook status reads.

”While I would like to apologize to the patrons who I offended by my poor choice of wording, I think this full story and a bit of video may help your understanding of the final straw with guests addressed and asked to leave"

”When the first incidents occurred the guests were politely asked to stop and have respect for themselves and other customers. The guests at issue were at three (3) tables. As this video shows you will see guests spoken to politely and literally begged to stop standing on our furniture and twerking. There are other videos that show much more of the behavior in the following videos but we do not want to embarrass the guests sitting at those tables.”

 

 

Apparently, the restaurant was playing music via a DJ and when Lil Ronny MothaF’s “Circle (Throw Dat Ass In A Circle)” came on, customers got up and started twerking. People on social media were sounding off saying if the owner didn’t want that type of energy then he shouldn’t have hired a DJ to play that type of music.

Now, the restaurant says it will change their music playlist to keep this from happening again.

"As for the music played, moving forward we will adjust our playlist and DJ selections. However, regardless of what had or will be played, no guest had the right to come into our business “home” and stand on our furniture because of any song played. As for the twerking being a part of our culture, we do not welcome the part of the culture that will come into a restaurant, stand on furniture and twerk while using “culture” as an excuse. Would you accept this for your home? As yourself if you would do this at any other restaurant you frequent"

Read the full response and peep the videos posted in the comments below:

 

 

So, who do you think was in the wrong: The owner or the customers?

Joe Biden Proves The Future Is Female With His Fierce White House Communications Team + Also, Biden Is Healing Just Fine After Hairline Fracture

0

President-elect Joe Biden is presenting spaces at the table with his newly announced all-female White House communications team. And we’re HERE for it. Deets on all the female energy that’ll be floating through the White House in 2021 inside…

Long gone are the days where old, white men call all the shots. Well, at least for the next four years.

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are shaking things up at the White House and we’re not mad at it. Not one bit. The nation is about to have an administration they’ve never seen before. It’s the first time in history these White House communication positions have been filled entirely by women.

Biden has chosen ALL females for his communications team – who are all more than qualified for the jobs they’ve been assigned to.

Symone Sanders will be a senior adviser and the chief spokesperson for Harris. She previously served as national press secretary on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign before joining Biden’s campaign.

Ashley Etienne will serve as Harris’ communications director. She’s a former aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who went on to work for Biden’s campaign. Elizabeth Alexander, who worked for Biden while he was in the Senate before serving as his press secretary while he was vice president, will be Jill Biden’s communications director. Alexander also worked on the Biden campaign.

Also…

Kate Bedingfield will be the White House communications director. She served as Biden’s communications director while he was vice president under the Obama administration, according to Politico.

Jen Psaki will be Biden’s White House press secretary. She served as the White House communications director for the last two years of President Barack Obama’s administration.

Also serving up girl power, Pili Tobar - who worked on Biden’s campaign and previously worked as deputy director of the immigration reform advocacy group America’s Voice - will be the White House deputy communications director.

Karine Jean-Pierre - who served as chief of staff to Vice President-elect Kamala Harris during the campaign - will be the principal deputy press secretary. She previously worked for the advocacy group MoveOn.org.

Joe Biden is building the most diverse cabinet than ever before.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield– a 35-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service who has served on four continents – was chosen to serve as the United Nations Ambassador to join the National Security Team. She was President O’s top diplomat on Africa from 2013 to 2017, leading U.S. policy in sub-Saharan Africa during the West Africa Ebola outbreak. It’s reported Biden plans to elevate the position of U.N. ambassador to Cabinet level.

By the way, New Orleans Congressman Cedric Richmond will serve as President-elect Joe Biden’s director of the White House Office of Public Engagement. He once served as the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus.

SWEET!

President-elect Joe Biden picked Obama Foundation president/economist Adewale “Wally” Adeyemo serve as deputy secretary of the Treasury and appointed Princeton professor and economist Cecilia Rouse to chair the Council of Economic Advisers.

In the meantime, we’re going to need Joe Biden to have a seat and CHILL before January 20, 2021.

 

 

President-elect Biden reportedly slipped and twisted his ankle while playing with his dog, Major, on Saturday. According to his doctor, a CT scan indicated that Biden has hairline fractures in the "mid-foot" area, which will "likely require a walking boot" for several weeks.

CBS News reports:

"Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging," said Mr. Biden's personal doctor, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, in a statement. "Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot. It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks."

Mr. Biden visited Delaware Orthopedic Specialists in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon, "out of an abundance of caution." Mr. Biden arrived around 4 p.m. ET and left around 6:45 p.m., giving a thumbs up to the press outside.

 

 

Glad he's OK! We surely appreciate the transparency unlike our current administration.

Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Spotted In NYC Together Further Fueling Dating Rumors That Sparked A Year Ago

0

Rumors of a possible relationship between Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been reignited after they were spotted together in NYC over the Thanksgiving holiday. A Twitter user tweeted about it and was asked to remove his tweet. Oh? More inside…

Around this time last year, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were making headlines as people speculated they were an item. At the time, it seems people weren’t really buying a coupledom situation between the two and thought it was more of a friendly friendship. The Fenty Beauty honcho popped up at one of his concerts in Sweden and they were seen dining together in London, so rumors of a romance were hot.

Here we are a year later and it seems Rih and Rocky may legit have something going on.

According to Page Six, both Rih & Rocky were spotted with a group of friends at the Beatrice Inn in NYC. The Grammy winning singer and Grammy nominated rapper (a Harlem native) were also spotted in The Bronx. Fans hopped on Twitter to air out their frustration over the fact that they didn’t get the chance to actually see the rumored couple:

One Twitter user tweeted the "Work" singer was at an apartment in the Bronx just a few doors down from him on Thanksgiving. Oh?

It seems someone from either of their teams possibly peeped his tweet and asked him to delete it, which he did. Another Twitter user asked about the Rihanna tweet and he revealed he was asked "by some people" to take it down. Peep his tweets below: 

Hmm...makes you wonder. 

PEOPLE reports a source confirmed to them that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are indeed in a relationship, but neither of them have confirmed that.

In January 2020, it was confirmed Rihanna and her ex-billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel had broken up. In the March 2020 British VOGUE issue, the "Diamonds" singer dished on how she came out of their relationship with a fresh perspective She has adopted a “no-nonsense” attitude and is going for exactly what she wants.

“Since I turned 32, I’m realizing life is really short,” she says. “You don’t have a lot of time to tolerate shit, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you’re overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I’m overwhelmed too much,” she says. “What’s happening now is that I’m going back to black and white. My grey area is shutting down.”

A few months ago, Rih & Rocky sat down to play a game of "Face To Face" for GQ magazine. Check it below:

Do you think they're a couple or just having fun?

DJ Funkmaster Flex has lost 40lbs during his weight loss journey. To celebrate, he decided to get liposuction. Then, he took it a step further sharing the procedure on IG Live. Lord. More inside…

New waist, who this?

DJ Funkmaster Flex has been committed to his weight loss journey, dropping 40lbs in the process.

Giving full transparency, The 52-year-old hopped on Instagram Live yesterday to give his fans a front row view of him undergoing liposuction. And apparently, the procedure was one “he always wanted to try." He said he decided to get the procedure done to "work on the hard areas,” such as his lower stomach, armpit sides and back fat. Oh, and he was awake the entire time.

In the background, Wu-Tang Clan rapper Raekwon's single "Ice Cream" was heard and social media users were confused why he picked that song to play during the procedure.

Check it:

 

"Today I took a step I always wanted to try! @elitebodysculpture works on those hard areas... lower stomach, arm pit sides and back fat!," he wrote on IG. "No anesthesia, awake the entire time! I really enjoyed it! @drtonyperkins thank u! Home now sore alittle able to go back to work tomorrow"

flexlipo2

As expected (since the Internet has ZERO chill), folks started clowning him for streaming the procedure. Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas hopped in Flex's comments and wrote, "@funkflex naw fam they need to be more gentle then that he treating u like u dead."

Peep more reactions below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the procedure, Flex said he's a little sore, but he'll be back at work at HOT 97 today. Well alright. If he likes it, we love it.

GOING OUT SAD: Trump Is Now Mad At GA Gov. Brian Kemp! + Trump Loses $3M Recount In Wisconsin, PA & Loses 3 Lawsuits Challenging Ballots

0
0

Trump is having a temper tantrum! Well, several. He’s now mad at Georgia Governor Brian Kemp after his office refused to interfere with the presidential election recount and the fact Gov. Kemp didn’t intercede on his behalf. He lost three lawsuits challenging ballots and he also lost the $3 million he put up for a recount in Wisconsin. Deets inside…

Bitter Betty Energy!

As his lawyer Rudy Guiliani reportedly discusses a pardon (why would one need a pardon if one did nothing wrong?!), Trump continues to lose on all fronts.

Trump is going out sad following the 2020 presidential election. Now, he’s channeling his petty energy towards Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) after previously endorsing him.

”Why won’t Governor @BrianKempGA, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state,” Trump tweeted.

He continued:

”Also, quickly check the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots. You may just find that there are many more ballots than there are envelopes. So simple, and so easy to do. Georgia Republicans are angry, all Republicans are angry. Get it done!”

So, why is Trump mad at his former homie?

Well, he’s having a temper tantrum because Kemp’s office rejected his call to “overrule” Georgia's Secretary of State.

“Georgia law prohibits the governor from interfering in elections. The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order,” Kemp’s communication’s director, Cody Hall, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"As the governor has said repeatedly, he will continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps — including a sample audit of signatures — to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised,” he continued.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger (R) and Kemp both confirmed the recount found President-elect Joe Biden to have defeated Trump by more than 12,000 votes. Raffensberger previously revealed Republicans - including Trump ally and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), had pressured him to exclude ballots as part of an effort to swing the state's election to Trump. Of course, Graham denied the charge. Isn’t that ILLEGAL?! Hmph.

Trump has been tweeting about voter fraud and the election being rigged relentlessly on his Twitter account, spewing “fake news” about the election. And Twitter is flagging it all:

Trump’s re-election campaign suffered losses in three lawsuits challenging ballots.

CNBC reports:

In Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign lost its appeal in the Court of Common Pleas of a decision by the Bucks County Board of Elections to allow the count of certain mail-in ballots there.

In Arizona, the Maricopa County Court dismissed a lawsuit by the state Republican Party that had sought to expand an audit of Arizona’s election results, and also denied a bid to have Maricopa County barred from certifying its election results.

And in Georgia, the attorney L. Lin Wood saw a federal judge, who was appointed by Trump last year, reject his request to block the state from certifying its vote tally, which Biden is projected to win, as in Pennsylvania and Arizona. 

Trump took another “L” as well. He paid $3 million to have the votes in Wisconsin recounted. After the count in the key battleground state, Joe Biden's victory over Trump was CONFIRMED. Trump is now challenging the outcome.

Also...

Trump is SKRESSED (no typo), y’all. A few days ago, a flustered Trump popped off on a reporter after he was asked if he would concede the election if the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden. Peep his reaction above.

50 days left until Joe Biden is sworn in as President of the United States. Count your days, Trump.

Days before Thanksgiving, the 34-year-old singing actress announced she and her future doctor boyfriend are getting married, posting a romantic photo of herself gazing into his eyes while showing off her ring!

“There was a time when I thought I didn’t want or deserve this kind of love. I’m looking at a man who changed my mind,” she wrote in the caption. “My time by myself, loving on myself, getting comfortable with myself, prepared me for you, and prepared me for this.”

“I am so proud to say, I am the future Mrs. Black,” she continued. “I love you @deseanblack_official and I thank you for your patience, your friendship, and your partnership!”

Desean also shared the exciting news with his followers while showering his wife-to-be with praise:

“Fellas, when a woman looks at you like this, it’s a clear indication that you’re doing the right thing,” he wrote in the caption. “Now, when she delivers unconditional love that you’ve never experienced, it’s another clear indication that you’ve found the one. Only a fool would let someone as special as this slip away. So I did what any wise man would do and put a ring on it. I love you to pieces @msamberpriley, or should I say the future Mrs. Black. #happilyengaged A king will always protect his queen.”

Reality legend Tiffany “New York” Pollard has finally found love!

The 38-year-old self-proclaimed HBIC revealed she recently got engaged on the “I Love New York” reunion special that aired recently.

"To find love the way I did, I stopped looking for it, and it literally found me, and I'm engaged, just 21 days old," she dished to host Vivica A. Fox. “He’s an amazing man, he’s a big part of my life,” the reality TV icon continued.

No word on who the mystery man is. For now.

Peep her ring – that she said she picked out – above.

 

New York has been publicly “looking for love” for 14 years making her debut as a "Flavor of Love" contestant. After a few seasons, she copped her own spin-off, “I Love New York,” which lasted two seasons (2007 – 2008).

Now, she’s about to be a real bride. And we wouldn't be surprised if she films it for TV.  Get that bag, Tiffany.

Congrats!

Things got HEATED between LisaRaye McCoy and her mother, Katie McCoy, as they worked out their issues on an episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life.” LisaRaye’s daughter, Kai McCoy, was also in the mix. More inside…

Family drama! We all go through it.

LisaRaye McCoy, her mother Katie McCoy, and her daughter Kai McCoy, were broken so they decided to enlist life coach Iyanla Vanzant to help them find common ground and to break down generational curses that have plagued their family. Being locked down in quarantine together in LisaRaye’s home as caused even more friction in the family.

 

 

LisaRaye and her mother have some deep-seeded issues that needed to be worked out to elevate their relationship. In the teaser clip, LisaRaye & her mother sound off about LisaRaye’s father and things got heated.

Digging into the past, Katie opened up about the abuse she endured at the hands of LisaRaye’s father, David McCoy, and how she sacrificed so that LisaRaye could have a better life. She said LisaRaye’s father died after his girlfriend shot him in 1988. He was still married to Katie at the time.

“She knew her daddy was a damn hoe,” LisaRaye’s mom said.

“What do I do about it now, mom? Can I buy you?,” LisaRaye responded.

“You ain’t got enough damn money to buy me!,” Katie responded. Sheesh.

It was revealed during a conversation with Iylana that LisaRaye’s mother hadn’t healed from her failed relationship with LisaRaye’s father. LisaRaye & her father were so close that he reportedly told her that if one of them were to die, the other had to take his or her own life. Not long after his death, LisaRaye supposedly deliberately ran her car into a tree to honor their pledge. She thankfully wasn’t successful.

 

Iyanla called Katie a “bitter, entitled woman who feels like she’s entitled to something.” It seems Katie isn’t happy with her relationship with her daughter and doesn’t hide it.

Check out the episode below:

After the episode aired, the Player’s Club actress shared what really went down with the episode:

Hopefully the experience will help LisaRaye, her mother and daughter to continue to build a strong relationship among them.

Word On The Curb Is That NBA Baller Jimmy Butler Is Dating Singer Selena Gomez

What’s cooking up between Miami Heat player Jimmy Butler and singer Selena Gomez? Find out inside…

Another COVID connection? Possibly.

Word on the curb is that Miami Heat baller Jimmy Butler and singer Selena Gomez are dating. The Internet is abuzz with rumors that the 31-year-old athlete and the 28-year-old singer are hooking up, according to rumors on Twitter, the Miami Herald and IG account @Deuxmoi.

According to the @Deuxmoi account, a source supposedly overheard that the staff at French bistro Lucien in the East Village were scrambling to accommodate Selena and a bevy of basketball players last month. Turns out, it was just one basketball player in particular, which is Jimmy.

Here are their receipts about their “date”:

Jimmy & Selena have a few things in common. They are both from Texas and they both seemingly have an interest in cooking:

 

A source told E! News Selena is currently single and that she’s "keeping her options open but has been on a few dates with Jimmy and thinks he's a great guy." The source revealed "they hung out a few times while Selena was in New York City. Jimmy asked her to go to dinner and they had a great time," but at the moment "it's very casual and she's open to seeing where things go, but isn't settling down just yet."

In an Apple Music’s Beats 1 interview, Selena talked about how everyone in Hollywood pretty much dates the same people.

“Everyone dates everyone. It always seems to be within a little bubble and it’s because it’s safe, right?,” she said.

We've definitely noticed....

 

 

Fans were quick to notice Jimmy’s daughter’s mom/ex Kaitlin Nowak unfollowed Selena on IG. They have been questioning her about it in her IG comments. Oop.

Jimmy and Kaitlin welcomed their one-year-old daughter in 2019. While the NBA was in the Orlando bubble, Kaitlin was seen cheering Jimmy on during his NBA Championship games against the Lakers back in October. So it looks like he's maybe been chillin' with both chicks simultaneously.

Are you here for this coupledom situation…IF they’re actually dating?
