Porsha Stewart Porsha Stewart

Porsha Stewart was having a hard time dealing with her divorce proceedings with her husband, Kordell Stewart.  If you have watched Real Housewives of Atlanta then you may be surprised why this couple end up in divorce.  Kordell was the one who filed for a divorce.  The first episode will be very emotional as the viewers will be witnessing the end of their marriage.  Porsha was accompanied by her mother and sister during her first deposition.  She was in tears as she narrated:

“It was just terrible..To hear him say, ‘She wasn’t home at a certain time so I locked her out?’ That was really, really hard to listen to listen to…Seeing Kordell at the deposition, was like a out-of-body experience…”

She further revealed:

Kerry Washington Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington has kept her pregnancy hidden for several months now.  However, this morning the US Weekly announced that the actress is expecting and she is already four months pregnant.  This is her first child with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha, who is a player of the San Francisco 49ers.  Kerry is a very private person; in fact we can’t even see any photos of her and her husband anywhere.

During her interview with Glamour, Kerry said:

“I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.”

“I don’t want to sound smug about it…but the point is to do what’s best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me.”

Congrats to Kerry and Nnamdi !

Will Kerry’s pregnancy affect her show?

Omarosa and Bethenny Omarosa and Bethenny

Omarosa is the type of person who does not hold back anything.  That is why; if you are planning to book her on your show then you should be prepared.  Bethenny Frankel was surprised when she was slammed by Omarosa right on her own show.

It all began in 2010 when Bethenny was compared to Omarosa when she guested on The View.  Bethenny got upset and revealed that she and Omarosa are not the same because she has a brand and a real career.  When Omarosa knew about this, she called Bethenny a b-tch.

Three years later, the two ladies got a chance to confront each other and Bethenny denied the things that she said.  In fact, she even made a bit of $10,000 to Omarosa.  However, when the transcript was retrieved Bethenny lost from the bet.

When Bethenny asked Omarosa about her brand?  Omarosa replied:

“I’m unapologetic about being a strong, African American woman who does not apologize. It’s different for you and I.  I’m an African American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.”

Omarosa and Bethenny Omarosa

“I think it’s important to understand that you don’t stay a decade on television, on reality TV, without being smart and creating a brand that people want to see. If the audience didn’t want to see Omarosa, they would never book me again. You booked me to be on your show today. There’s a brand there. There’s a commodity.[...]”

“You’re not walking in your own truth. The moment you accept your real truth, everything is going to open up for you. Everything, your happiness, your joy, your relationships, but it cannot happen until you accept your own truth. Truth is, 10 years later I’m still here. I hope that you’re still here a year from now.”

Isn’t it embarrassing?

Pebbles Pebbles

After the premier showing of TLC biopic “CrazySexyCool” on VH1 last week, Peebles released her statement saying that the portrayal of her character on the biopic is false.  According to Pebbles, the first manager of TLC, she and her family are suffering from emotional stress after the biopic was shown.  Based on the biopic, Pebbles only paid the group $25 every week even after they were able to sold $10 million from their records.  Here is the statement of Pebbles:

“First I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers. I apologize for the delay in responding to the movie, but I wanted to gather my thoughts. I have always been a private person and this unprovoked attack has been extremely upsetting to me and my family. I have needed time to spend with my family and for personal reflection.”

“The movie contains many false and defamatory statements and scenes about me. Please know that I have never cheated or mislead anyone. I will defend my reputation, accomplishments, and character. My attorney is in the process of demanding a retraction of the false and defamatory statements and scenes about me from VH1.”

“My silence has empowered individuals looking for a payday at my expense. I have held my peace for 20 years and it’s time the truth comes out. I will be sharing my story in the appropriate venue at the appropriate time. With all my heart I thank you for your faithful support.”

Pebbles Pebbles

“I am extremely proud of the success and massive accomplishments of TLC—the group I discovered, managed, and mentored. I helped push open doors for TLC and other women in this male dominated industry. My sacrifices ultimately opened the door for not only a new wave of female performers in this industry but also a new generation of female executives. That backdrop makes the movie extremely personally upsetting to me.”

What can you say about this statement?

Tiffney Cambridge Tiffney Cambridge

It seems that The Game’s fiance, Tiffney Cambridge is not entirely affected by the recent rumors.  After the second season of ‘Marrying the Game‘ has finished, Cambridge wanted to clear up the rumors regarding her fiancée.  When the reality star was asked if there is a romance developing between The Game and Khloe Kardashian, she replied:

“It doesn’t bother me [the rumors]. Jayceon and Khloe have been friends for a long time. She actually, back in the day, years ago, used to date one of his close friends, so that’s where their relationship stems from. They’ve always been really good friends. You know how the media is, and the paparazzi is, and how people speculate on things, and that just goes along with the territory. So to tell you the truth, no, it doesn’t bother me or affect me either way. I think that she’s going through a lot right now in her situation with her husband, and at the same time, Jayceon is there to support her and encourage her as a friend. So no, it doesn’t bother me.”

Is she affected by the extended engagement?  Tiffney answered:

“Right now, we’re in a good space. I think relationships, they take a lot of time, and right now we’re taking the time to work out the kinks in ours, and we’re moving forward as a family. Our focus right now is our kids and making sure everything is okay with them. We both have different projects that we’re working on, so we’ve been really busy with our own individual endeavors, but things are good.”

Is there going to be a third season of Marrying the Game‘?

Michele Obama and Kim Kardashian Michele Obama and Kim Kardashian

After Kanye visited the Power 106 radio station in Los Angeles early this week, his next stop was Ryan Seacrest.  One of the most fascinating portions of his interview was when he expressed that his fiance, Kim Kardashian, is more stylish compared to the First Lady, Michelle Obama. When Kanye was questioned about his frustrations, he replied:

“Or like with the Hollywood Walk of Fame … it’s not the walk of singing … it’s the Walk of Fame … and classism has been going on before racism. We’re classist. We have our cool table … and there’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue. She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday … and collectively we’re the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a [bikini] pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day… so it’s to say when we are there and [editor-in-chief of French Vogue] Carine Roitfeld supports my girl, that’s a breakthrough … there’s a wall of classism that we are breaking through.

Kanye also revealed that even if he has already matured in some ways, he still cannot get away with alcohol.  So, how does Kanye handles his frustrations?  He said::

“Just drink! I’m sure I’m not supposed to say that, but I drink Grey Goose. And I’m not getting paid anything from them, but I’m going to tell you as a man – and they said Shakespeare was like a drunk and yes, I said that to blatantly compare myself to Shakespeare – you know, I’m not perfect. And certain mornings or in the evening, and I’m not a falling over drunk, but I’ll pour a little Goose, grab some ice cubes, and just practice patience.?”

Should Kim Kardashian be featured on the cover of VOGUE?

So our families know each other, we were familiar with one another so it wasn’t like strangers…We know each other.”

“Allegedly, I was kicked out. Allegedly, we had words. No, none of that happened. I went to the event, thinking that I can get some orders for hair…I didn’t want anyone to know that I was her sister and I stressed that to Marlo and she said, ‘Girl I recognize you, I know who you are’and I said, ‘You do? Don’t say it too loud, come to the back, lets talk in the back.’One more thing about Marlo’s event,she did let me know that she recognized what I was saying about what I was saying about my sister, and how my sister is very messy, that let me know that she knew what time it was.”
