Nene Leakes, the grandest star to rise from the ‘Real Housewives‘ empire, claims ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ star Lisa Vanderpump tricked, lied to and deceived her.
Find out how below…
Jussie Smollett made headlines the world over when it was revealed that he was the victim of a brutal attack that was rooted in both racism and homophobia.
That Grape Juice were first to break the news of the horrendous incident, which came days after the openly gay ‘Empire’ star received hate mail which almost foretold the situation.
Now, Smollett (35) is speaking up and out about the harrowing experience. His words below…
After generating $5 billion at the box office, the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise is expanding with a little help from Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
Both reprise their respective roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in a new stand-alone flick christened ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.’
Due in theaters on August 2nd, the flick will see the put aside their differences and unite against a common enemy named Brixton – played by Idris Elba.
Suffice to say, an action-packed adventure ensues.
Watch the first look trailer below…
Much like fellow celebrities Janet Jackson, Kerry Washington, Ariana Grande, and countless others, Kevin Hart took to social media to share his support for actor/singer Jussie Smollett after reports surfaced he’d suffered a homophobic attack at the hands of two assailants.
Unlike his fellow celebs, Hart was hit with a swift and fiery response from Smollett’s supporters. Damning the funnyman for his nearly decade old homophobic tweets that recently resurfaced (and cost him the Oscars hosting gig along the way), the 39-year-old got a harsh schooling on why language like what he used in those hate messages are harmful.
When the influx of criticism became too much, Kev took to Twitter to clap back. See his response to the hoopla inside:
Bravo are officially bringing the ‘Married To Medicine’ franchise to the home of Hollywood!
For, the network have officially announced ‘Married To Medicine Los Angeles.’
Much like the original show (which is based in Atlanta), the West Coast incarnation of the series will follow five successful female doctors and doctors’ wives as they navigate their professional and personal lives – and friendships with each other.
The ladies are Dr. Imani Walker, Asha Kamali-Blankinship, Dr. Noelle Reid, Shanique Drummond and Dr. Britten Cole and friend Jazmin Johnson.
With a premiere date set for March 10th, check out the first trailer below…
Much like Kevin Hart (whose career was rocked by headlines around resurfaced homophobic tweets just a week ahead of the premiere of his latest film, ‘The Upside’), Taraji P. Henson and Erykah Badu – stars of the new film ‘What Men Want’ (in theaters February 8) – have been bombarded with negative press surrounding their perceived support of embattled R&B legend R. Kelly.
Kelly, whose 2019 has been dominated by heightened press after the Lifetime documentary ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ ignited public damning and legal investigations, has become such a hot topic that even stars who suggest supporting him get burned.
Case in point? Last week Badu and Henson (as we reported here and here respectively) were dragged on Twitter for the mere implication the ‘Bump N’ Grind’ star deserved less unfavorable attention. Now, as they are in full swing of a promo blitz of the soon-to-be-released flick, the two have been quizzed on their thoughts about the backlash that ensued after their respective statements.
See what they said inside:
Few stars can say they’ve survived an industry black-balling and landed on their feet the way funnywoman Mo’Nique has.
Despite earning quite the reputation for her outspoken nature, being cast as “difficult” and “demanding” by the likes of entertainment industry leaders Tyler Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Lee Daniels, Whoopi Goldberg, and more, and becoming the source of ridicule for her highly publicized battle with Netflix, the 51-year-old is celebrating a major comeback courtesy of a recently announced stint in Sin City.
Making history as the first Black comedienne to have her own Vegas residency, Mo took to our friends at Essence to not only dish on the major accomplishment but also reflect on the recent downfalls that have gotten her to this point (i.e. backlash received for supporting Roseanne, Netflix drama, and more).
‘On & On’ takes on new meaning as neo-soulstress Erykah Badu‘s involved in yet another Twitter tussle thanks to her recent feather-ruffling comments on actor/singer Jussie Smollett.
As we reported here, Smollett was hospitalized after a heinous homophobic attack in Chicago recently. When fellow celebs and fans alike took to Twitter to voice their support for Smollett and outrage against the perpetrators, Badu used her social media platform to say:
Needless to say, just a week after being slammed for her support of R. Kelly (click here to read more), her comments on Smollett incited Twitter attack…
‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett has received an enduring wave of support from celebrities and fans alike after That Grape Juice exclusively broke the story of his vicious attack by homophobic and racist assailants.
As the FBI investigates what they have deemed a “possible hate crime,” many of Smollett’s supporters – including ‘Empire’ director Lee Daniels and the show’s network home, FOX – have vowed to offer assistance with the 35-year-old’s return to health and raise awareness about violence against the LGBT community.
Daniels recently took to Instagram to give his followers the first glimpse at Smollett since his hospitalization. Following up with a fiery rant, see the video, photo, and more inside:
