“RHOA” star Kandi Burruss graces the cover of the recent issue of JET magazine. Inside the magazine, the reality star chatted about how Todd helped her become successful in her business. She also discussed about her forthcoming wedding as well as the reason why Mama Joyce does not like Todd.
Why does Mama Joyce disapprove of Todd? Kandi said:
“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy.” She added, “I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”

How Todd helped her in becoming a successful businesswoman? She said:
“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented. But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”
When will they get married?

It seems that there is one person who is on Kordell Stewart’s side. He is Peter Thomas, the husband of Cynthia Bailey. Peter wants to get Kordell’s side of the story. During the recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kordell and Peter chatted about the reason why he and Porsha split.
In Peter’s recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, he revealed that it’s only right that Kordell must explain his side of the story. He said:
“I lobbied to hear the other side of the story. I spoke to Mr. Stewart, Kordell, because everyone kept on hearing just one side of the divorce situation. I talked him into shooting and telling his side, he’s getting killed. I watched this guy get persecuted by public opinion. His ex-wife threw gasoline on the fire, why is that acceptable? The divorce didn’t just come out of left field.”
Peter also explained that he has no personal issues with Porsha. He said:
“I don’t think she’s a bad person. I just think she’s young and inexperienced in life. I believe that she will learn from the situation…If she ever gets married again, she’ll be a little bit more conscientious. For her to go on national TV and kind of say all those things she said is in poor taste. That made me a little bit angry as a Black man.”
Was Peter doing the right thing?

R. Kelly and Irina Shayk
What can he say about being a survivor and what are his thoughts with regards to his critics? He said:
“The more a soldier wins, the more the other soldiers want to take him out. You have to know how to metaphorically and spiritually use your gift to be your shield. So I shield myself with my gift. I stay behind it and I continue to make music. And when the music is sharpened, I shoot it out there. I’m not a master, but I learned a lot from my teacher Lena McLin. She was basically my Ms. Miyagi and I was her Daniel-san. I would listen to everything she would tell me and I’m still doing that today.”
R. Kelly also revealed that he is currently preparing for his next album.
Will it be called White Panties?

The source said:
“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”

The source further added that Beyoncé is not interested to appear on reality TV:
“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé. She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
Should Mr. and Mrs. Carter get themselves involved in Kanye and Kim’s wedding?

Ashanti and Nelly
“I will say that, there was a space where it was bad. It was really bad. Are we cool? Yeah. We’re okay.”
“When a man is hurt and a woman is hurt, I think men deal with hurt differently. I feel like we handle our emotions differently. There were a lot of things said and done publicly that should not have been. There was a foundation set and those things shouldn’t have happened. We both definitely made mistakes in a lot of things. But I will say things do come full circle. [He] is a really good person, he has a really good heart. You know?”
Are they or are they not together again?

Last week, Rihanna took a trip to France so that he can be with Drake on stage in Paris. They were spotted together in a number of occasions too. On Wednesday, after Rihanna was done with her Paris Fashion Week celebrations, she flew to Amsterdam so that she can attend Drake’s concert. Yesterday, Ri and Drake were spotted dining together at Izakaya Sushi Restaurant then later on they flew to Germany.
Way back in 2010, when Drake was interviewed by Rickey Smiley with regards to his past relationship with Rihanna, he explained:
Rihanna and Drake
“It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve experienced in a long time. It’s so rare that I feel nervous and small due to a woman’s presence. And I will tell you that, Rihanna had me so overwhelmed at the time that we met and throughout the duration of our friendship (or whatever it was that we had) that she gave me an emotion I truly miss in my life. On the album I wanted to pay homage to her for giving me that emotion. I don’t know when the next time I will feel that. I would say that I was very into that situation but I wouldn’t say I loved her. I didn’t get to know her well enough to say that I love her.”
Are they just friends or what?

Actress Nia Long stars in Tyler Perry’s recent film, ‘The Single Moms Club.’ The 43-year-old actress who is a mother of two recently graced the cover of Essence’s March issue and appeared on Oprah’s Lifeclass during the episode devoted for single mothers. Aside from promoting her latest film, she also shared a funny story wherein she dated a guy together with her sister and her son who was still 2 years old at that time. She said:
“My son was about two and I had just broken up with his dad. I said ‘Ya know what, I am going to go out and I am going to reclaim my sexy’… And this gentleman came and I said ‘Lets do a group date’. I didn’t want to do a one- on one thing so I called my sister and said ‘You’re going on my first date with me’. I was living in New York at the time. We walk out of the apartment, he’s in this big truck like a suburban but he had a driver. So I was like ‘Ooh he’s fancy’. So we get in the car and my two year old goes ‘My daddy has a big ole blue truck and its faster than this one’ . And I just went ‘Oh my goodness’, so they know. They know, even when you try to hide it and be like ‘This is just mommy’s friend’, they know. That guy didn’t last so him and his truck went ‘bye-bye’. So what it did teach me was to introduce kinda early. “
What can you say about Nia’s advice?
