And your favorite show Empire may have just gotten a tad bit better. Just the other day Tyrese hopped on Instagram as “Jody” and alluded that he may be joining Empire to get his girl “Yvette” back and that he isn’t feeling her new name Cookie.

I guess I gotta change my name too and go do some show called #Empire? Cause that’s where Yvette is now under her alias #Cookie? Damn…. see you soon —–Jody
Whether Jody likes it or not Derek Luke a.k.a Cookie’s new man Malcolm had no issues letting him know that he can’t keep his hands out of Cookie’s Cookie Jar.

The reunion show for R&B Divas L.A. left no stone unturned. Known for getting down to the business, host Wendy Williams asked the cast the tough questions that viewers wanted answers to. In a startling and surprising twist, when Wendy asked the women about their plastic surgery, former Death Row singer and baby mother of Dr. Dre, Michel’le revealed something that none of us saw coming.
Below is Michel’le’s response after Wendy Williams asked her about her nose job:
Michel’le: One of my boyfriends hit me and [made it] crooked it until I had to straighten it and change it and it cost a lot of money.
Wendy Williams: One of your babies’ fathers? You’re speaking of, that broke your nose?
Michel’le: Absolutely…and I stayed [in the relationship].
Michel’le went on to say she had to “figure out” that domestic violence isn’t an expression of love because her father never told her he loved her. But after some more talking, Michel’le revealed that despite dating Suge Knight, one of Hip hop’s most notorious bad boys, it was Dr. Dre who she was referring to all along.
Michel’le: Getting beat was love to me. When I got with Suge- believe it or not–he didn’t really beat me. I asked him ‘why aren’t you beating me? Don’t you love me?’
Wendy Williams: By saying Suge didn’t beat you, the finger is pointing at you Dr. Dre.
Michel’le never once corrected Wendy and kind of just shrugged it off alluding that it was in fact Dre who used to lay hands on her. While both Dre and Michel’le continue to co-parent their son Marcel together, Michel’le hasn’t been involved with Dre since their break up.
With or without former cast members like Jennifer and Royce, the drama must go on!
Despite recent reports that this will be a more positive season of Basketball Wives, the cast is bringing the drama right back to your television screens. We already know things are going to get heated between Evelyn and Suzie after Suzie thought it was okay to laugh at Tasha Marbury’s helmet joke. Speaking of the new girl on the block, don’t expect for Tasha and Tami Roman to be engaging in too many 1 on 1 dinners together. Tami says that she is over meeting new people and, “Tired of trying to induct these ladies into the Tami Roman school of this is who the fu-k I am.” Not only is Tami tired of meeting new people but she might be tired of old friends like Shaunie O’neal as well.
For the next two weeks Saturday’s will be scandalous on BET.
It’s funny how I somehow find the time to catch up on Love and Hip Hop and Basketball Wives every week but could never find time to do the same with Scandal (don’t shoot, please don’t shoot). If you are anything like me now is the time to catch up on the past two seasons of Olivia Pope’s scandalous behaviors. The Black Television network is bringing scandalous Saturday’s to your television screens starting today.
The first season of Scandal will air today between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. along with the first few episodes of season 2. On the following Scandalous Saturday, August 17th, the majority of season 2 will air between 8 a.m and 10 p.m. And finally on Wednesday, August 21st, the remainder of season 2 will air.
Kim Kardashian had her mother in tears on a previous episode of Kris. Diddy was Kris’ co-host throughout the episode and while plugging his new television network Revolt TV (business minded) Diddy thought it would be a great idea to surprise momager Kris with a little video from Kim. When Kim popped up on the screen Kris burst into tears. Kim began by congratulating her mom on her new show and apologizing for not being able to be in attendance due to how much she is loving her new life right now. She added:
But I watch you every single day. You are so amazing. You really are born to do this. And I just want to say I love you and have an amazing show.
Watch it below.
Cassie better keep one eye open because Diddy was doing a lot of flirting with Kris throughout the show. He let Kris know that he has always had a crush on her and was cliche when he told her, “Once you go black, you never go back!” Ha ! We’re sure he didn’t have to tell her that though! Moving right along!
Ciara stops by the show as well. Watch the full episode below.
This season of Basketball Wives is going to be an emotional roller coaster for Evelyn Lozado.
Within this past year Evelyn has lost two of her best friends including her ex-husband Chad Ochocinco to a domestic abuse altercation. After only three weeks of marriage Evelyn felt as though she had the right to be hurt after finding condoms in her husbands car. Already this season, we know that she isn’t taking this whole domestic abuse situation lightly. Can you blame her? She explained:
Some people can be like “Oh it’s her fault.” I had every reason to be pissed off that my husband of three weeks is buying condoms. I think I have every right, but he knows I was good to him.
She also lost her brother in-law Anthony to cancer. In the clip she talks to her mother about how dark she felt during that period in her life.
Why is this happening to my life? That’s my brother and then he dies right after the incident with me and Chad. Words can’t even explain how dark I felt – like, this can’t be my life.
The conversations get heated on The Real talk show.
Adrienne Bailon and her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian dated back in 2007 up until 2009 and within those two years the ex-couple tattooed each others name on one another. Rob took the bolder approach while tattooing Adrienne’s name on his left rib cage and Adrienne went the more discreet route by tattooing his name on her buttock. These two didn’t just get each other’s initials or something small, they went out on a limb by inking one another’s full name.
Adrienne admits to her co-host that it was ratchet of her to make such a bold move:
Everybody knows I have the ratchet-iest booty tattoo of an ex-boyfriend. I don’t know what I was thinking.
It’s awful. Ten letter last name. Kardashian. Now that is a ratchet tattoo. I made a very bad decision. Don’t follow my example.
…It actually says Robert A. Kardashian. He has Adrienne Eliza Bailon on his rib over here as well. That was pretty bad too.
So kids, don’t try that at home! Watch her explain below.
It’s looking like these ladies are about to change the rules of daytime television. It gets real on The Real. Wendy Williams better watch out!
Tamera Mowry, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, and Jeanni Mai kick off their brand new daytime television series The Real today. During the discussions the ladies weigh in on some heavy subjects and they have no problems saying the first thing that comes to their minds.
In the sneak peek videos the ladies dish on how they feel abut celebrities being photographed without make-up and which ones are not so easy on the eye. Some of them feel like celebrities shouldn’t walk out of the house without a beat face and others feel like photographers are just being mean when they take photos of celebrities like that. When Tamar and Tamera were asked about putting pre-nups in place the two had totally different views. Tamera has a pre-nup in place and feels like if her marriage doesn’t work out she doesn’t want any of her husbands hard earned money and he doesn’t want any of hers. Tamar on the other hand doesn’t have a pre-nup in place with Vince and feels the complete opposite of Tamera. Watch the videos below.
Rumor has it that this past weekend Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones were spotted filming season 2 of Chrissy and Mr. Jones.
During last year’s season we witnessed the couple in a more intimate light than what we saw on Love and Hip Hop New York. The two of them struggled and navigated their way through fertility issues, business endeavors, family, friends and more. The goal was to work towards being better individuals for one another and a wedding ceremony but Jimmy was a bit more stubborn than what Chrissy had bargained for. Hopefully he’ll get it right this time, we’re rooting for them.
In other reality television news…
Basketball Wives season 5 is returning, sooner than you think. Tami Roman, Shaunie O’ Neal, Suzie Ketcham, Evelyn Lozado and newest cast member Tasha Marbury will hit our television screens on August 9th.
Tasha was formally married to Stephon Marbury until she found out that he was boning their personal chef. The chef let the cat out of the bag after Stephon decided he was’t going to cough up $300,000 which was the remaining amount to the $1,000,000 that he had promised her. Ouch! Tasha’s story line should be interesting. Don’t expect much drama though, Shaunie has already said that the show is moving in a more positive direction.
Shaunie O’Neal: [It] was so difficult to deal with when it was airing and when it was all over with. I remember saying, ‘what the hell just happened? This isn’t us; we’re mothers, we’re businesswomen. We have to be smarter. We have to represent ourselves a lot better.
Just like his friend Kevin Hart, comedian Will “Spank” Horton is seriously funny.
It was pure comedy hanging out with Spank during the Fashionably Loud Fashion Show Saturday night in Philadelphia. Whenever the comedian wasn’t giving me one word answers or walking away from the camera we were talking about his experience on tour with Kevin Hart, how he began his career, up-coming projects and more. Spank told me:
On how it was being on tour with Kevin Hart: Spank: It was ight. Me: It was ight? That’s it that’s all you gone give me? Spank: Nah I’m just messing with you. Nah it was good. It’s always good to roll with a friend and for the friend to blow up and be a super star it was good. Like we was doing arenas, I ain’t never imagined me performing in an arena before.
On how long they’ve known each other: Uhhh since like 19-20. Before comedy. He’s from Erie ave I’m from Knightstown it’s like a bridge in between the two…
Find out what happens next when Spank finds out his wife is waiting outside for him in the video below.
