While NeNe Leakes made a name for herself in the Urban diaspora by way of Bravo hit ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’, it was her stint on season 11 of Celebrity Apprentice which saw the mainstream mass sit up and pay attention.

One the most pertinent reasons? Her epic duels with TV host and fellow contestant Star Jones. See what we mean below!


For the ladies at VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives‘, the last year has been ‘intense’ to say the least.

Coming under fire for what many saw as gratuitous violence, bullying and a general lack of decorum, today saw the ‘wives’ face even more drama.

For, in what will shock many of its viewers, VH1 has reportedly given Jennifer Williams, Kesha Nicols and Royce Reed their marching orders in a bid to rid the show of ‘dead weight’.

Reports indicate that Royce‘s dismissal stems from her inability to address her ‘off screen’ drama on camera due to a gagging order placed on her the father of her son.

This, coupled with her cast mates refusal to film with  led to producers coming to this decision.

Williams, who like  Reed has starred in the show since its genesis, was allegedly given the boot after being seen as a liability by producers, after threatening to sue recurring cast mate Nia Crooks for slapping her on camera and openly criticizing the show during press rounds.

Until they are replaced, the show’s current line up consists of attempted mogul Shaunie O’ Neal, one time homey hopper Evelyn Lozada, the cantankerous Tami Roman and failed television host Suzie Ketcham.

VH1 are yet to release a statement confirming the dismissals.

Until they do, peep the middle aged bullies  ladies in action below…

Following a snowball of speculation, it was today confirmed that Rocsi Diaz and Terrence J, hosts of BET’s 106 & Park, will be leaving the show after seven years.

Stephen J. Hill, President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, announced the news in a statement:

“Today, after seven exciting years, 106 & Park hosts Terrence J and Rocsi announced that they will be leaving the show. It is no secret that there are a number of opportunities coming their way and we’re fortunate that they’ve been with 106 & Park for so long. They will be staying on the show for a while, so that we can have a “victory lap” — a celebration of their years at the helm of 106 & Park— before their departure. Terrence J and Rocsi are destined for great success and we at BET Networks will always take pride in being their original home — and be a place where I hope they’ll always feel welcome.”


The duo made the emotional announcement on-air during today’s 106 & Park, recounting stories from their years on the show. “The first day I cracked the mic on 106, I was staying on a cot in a basement,” Terrence said, with Rocsi adding, “Until the moment we leave, we pledge to bring you young Black culture. It continues to be our honor to do this for you.”

“We are humbled at the opportunity to be a part of your lives,” Terrence concluded, promising that “we have a huge farewell show coming for you guys. We’re going to be leaving with a bang.” {Source}


Undoubtedly a polarizing pair, their departure begs many a question. What will the fate of 106 be? Who’ll replace them? Will you still watch? Needless to say, interesting times lay ahead.
