Phylicia Rashad Defends Sexual Allegations Against Bill Cosby: “Forget These Women”

Bill Cosby; Phylicia Rashad

“Oh Please” was the response that Roger from Showbiz 411 received from Phylicia Rashad when he brought up the names of the women that have accused Bill Cosby of “sexually harassing” them.  She admits that she’s never seen the behavior from Cosby that these women speak of.

The two had a brief discussion in regards to the situation during an elegant lunch for the new movie Selma that took place at the Metropolitan Club. Although she made it very clear that she did not want to be a part of the public debate, she did have quite a few things to say.

Get into the interview below.

On Cosby being accused of drugging, raping and sexually harassing the accusers:

Forget these women. What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated.

I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.

On Bill’s wife Camille Cosby:

This is a tough woman, a smart woman. She’s no pushover. There is no question, Rashad said, that Camille Cosby has not been complicit or looked the other way as her husband terrorized women for the last 50 years.

She continued…

Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled. This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?

She said Cosby himself is probably too proud to raise a defense. I countered that his silence reminded me of how Jerry Lewis reacted whe, after 50 years. the Muscular Dystrophy Association treated him like dirt. He refused to fight back. To quote a popular song from the 70s: “If you don’t know me by now, you will never never know me.” 

Do we agree with her?

Basketball Wives sisters Gloria and Laura Govan hit the red carpet for the premiere of Wedding Ringer at the TCL Chinese Theatre last night. The duo smiled for the cameras in their Michael Costello dresses both wearing gold pumps to match. But it was all fun and games until a boob popped out.

Cha little miss Laura was oblivious to the fact that her entire boob had escaped from the cup of her dress.

J. Cole To Marry College Sweetheart Melissa?

J-cole-melissa

Lucky woman!

After years of dating is seems like J. Cole is ready to take his relationship with Melissa to the next level. The couple met in college while attending St. John’s University in NYC and have been dating ever since. It’s no secret that Cole has a boo, he’s mentioned her in countless records and interviews.

Although recently, when he stopped by the Breakfast Club to chat with Angie Martinez about his recent album Forest Hills Drive Angie asked if he had a girlfriend. His response to that was, “I don’t want to say too much because I put so much in the music.”

Clearly that means yes and I’ve seen the couple together before while visiting Atlanta.

Despite the reaction he gave Angie, a source close to the couple revealed to Sister2Sister that Cole recently put a ring on it. The source says:

J. Cole gave Melissa a flawless four carat diamond ring and they already have the date and location set.

Melissa is a successful wedding planner so the process of planning should be easy. Cole has yet to confirm these allegations but if it is true, congrats you two!

Catch another throwback pic of the couple in college below.

Why Wait? Ludacris And Eudoxie Get Engaged And Married All In One Day

photo 3.PNG-4

In love? Why wait?!

Luda and his beautiful African wife Eudoxie are just married! Just a week ago they announced their engagement with photos from the proposal. Unlike most couples who wait months sometimes years after the engagement to plan a huge wedding ceremony, it is being reported that the pair got engaged and tied the knot all in one day. So here’s what allegedly went down:

After Luda proposed on Christmas Eve the two had dinner and headed home. When they arrived there was a gown draped over her living room sofa that Luda’s mom had picked out for her. In another part of their home was a room full of close friends and family members that were there to witness the special moment. The beautiful bride had no issues with the gown her mother-in-law picked out for her and obviously was okay with her wedding ceremony because she married her hubby right there on the spot.

To further support these allegations Luda posted the following message just hours:

Why wait? Did the thing before 2015.#mrandmrsrbridges

Days after they married the two hopped on a private jet and took on their honey moon in Costa Rica. Super sweet!

Power Couple Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Are The New Face Of Balmain

rs_1024x664-141222070151-1024.Kim-Kardashian-Kanye-West-Balmain-JR1-122214

Power Couple: A supercouple or super couple (also known as a power couple) is a popular or wealthy pairing that intrigues and fascinates the public in an intense or even obsessive fashion. 

They say you shouldn’t be dating a person that can’t make you better. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are everything but shy of that statement. Over the years we’ve watched these two assist in building one another’s brands. While Kanye is so passionate about fashion, at one point he had Kim clean out her entire closet and helped revamp it with all new pieces. All last year we watched the rapper get emotional while ranting about the corporations that aren’t allowing him to break into the fashion world.

Well, luckily his wife is really good friends with Balmain’s creative director Oliver Rouesting. That friendship has paved the way for Kim and Kanye to become the face of Balmain’s 2015 spring/summer menswear collection. This campaign could be the start of something huge for Kanye’s fashion ideas in the near future.

See more photos below.

When it came to picking the face of the new collection. Oliver says he chose Kimye because:

… I wanted to capture a moment of love. Kim and Kanye are style icons and friends. It is an honour to have them in this Balmain campaign. Together, they represent love, beauty and diversity—they are the new modernity. This is more than a campaign, it expresses something beyond clothes—it is a celebration of love and friendship. This is a new statement for Balmain.

And then this happened…

Last night cameras flocked to the red carpet as celebs showed up to the annual Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas. Slayage of the night included looks from designers such as Tom Ford, Balmain, Roberto Cavalli and more. Although gowns are lovely, it was nice to see these ladies step out of their comfort zones by rocking pant suits, shorts and jumpsuits.

Tamar did a fabulous job co-hosting in a Roberto Cavalli pant suit, gold choker and long blonde hair. Most would disagree, but we absolutely loved Lil’ Kim’s look last night in which she debuted her new blue hair accented with a lace top, leather shorts and black over the knee Tom  Ford boots.

DSC_5639-500x815

“She came, She slayed, Shows over!!!” were Toya Wright’s final words as she and Lil Wayne wrapped up their daughter Reginae Carter’s extravagant sweet 16 birthday bash last night in Atlanta. “Chapter 16″ is what they named the celebration while guests of the evening hashtagged #Chapter16 and #NaeDay via Instagram under photos.

Reginae arrived to her Louisiana themed party on a horse and carriage. Cameras flashed as she made her way to the entrance in a Jovani Fashion’s gown. She wore the gown to start the night off and made five different wardrobe changes throughout the evening.

Entertainment for the night included a live performance from Young Money’s own Nicki Minaj. Reginae took the stage with Nicki and danced along to the rapper’s lyrics.

Lil Wayne’ was in attendance but not with his rumored boo thang Christina Milian. He was actually spotted taking a selfie with his ex-fiance Dhea. Other celebrities such as T.I., Tiny, Kandi Buruss, Rasheeda Frost, OMG Girlz, Lil Twist and more were in attendance as well.

The highlight of the night were the gifts Reginae received from her parents. The 16 year old received not one luxury vehicle but two. Check out her brand new red BMW and white Ferrari below.

Watch: Idris Elba Makes K. Michelle Break Down In New Lyric Video? “Maybe I Should Call”

photo 1 (43) photo 2 (45) photo 3 (23)

Gotta love the fact that K. Michelle is an open book. 

In the most recent page out of K. Michelle’s diary the singer is letting us all in on another one of her relationships. K’s new song Maybe I Should Call is said to be a reflection of her previous relationship with actor Idris Elba. The reality star revealed these details during an interview that took place during her AnyoneWanna Buy A Heart album listening party. When she was asked if the song was about Idris she fought back the tears before stating:

I will always love him and that’s all I’m going to say

So it isn’t shocking to see her totally break down in her new lyric video for the song.

And don’t act like Idris wouldn’t have the same affect on you. Ha!

Watch the video below. 

In case you missed it, watch K’s interview about Idris with blogger Necole Bitchie below.
