Major shifts are taking place in the world of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.
Find out why below…
By way of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God has become a cornerstone of Black pop culture.
And while he’s more than made a name for himself, he’s consistently given props to Wendy Williams for giving him his start back in her radio days.
However, as of 2010, the pair have been estranged – a reality Charlamagne has long blamed on Williams’ soon-to-be ex-husband Kevin Hunter. A man he insists has a sinister vendetta against him.
Now, after almost a decade, Hunter’s excommunication has reunited the former radio team.
Controversy – even inadvertent brands of it – still sells records. Ask Lil Nas X: the 20-year-old singer/rapper who recently burst onto the scene thanks to a controversial call from Billboard that initially excluded his Country-tinged Hip Hop song – ‘Old Town Road’ – from riding onto Country charts.
Once the decision was reversed (thanks to harsh criticism from a number of supporters who slammed Billboard for making such a rule in the first place), last week saw the Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted tune shoot to the top of the Hot 100 (as we reported here). Retaining the spot for a second run this week, the retention came on the heels of some jaw dropping streaming figures.
“Road” rockets by 207%, from 46.6 million U.S. streams to 143 million, shattering the record for the most in a week. “Road” also roars by 454% to 124,000 downloads sold…That’s the biggest weekly total since Drake’s “God’s Plan” debuted with 127,000 sold (Feb. 3, 2018).

Now, in an interesting twist, Hunter has issued a public apology to the talk show maven – taking ownership of his wrongs. Well, somewhat.
Check out what he had to say after the jump…
After garnering acclaim aplenty for their musical collaboration, ‘Dinero,’ rapstress Cardi B and singer/actress Jennifer Lopez are looking for a repeat courtesy of their forthcoming silver screen project, ‘Hustlers.’
The film – which sees its plot inspired by a 2016 New York Magazine article that detailed the lives of a crew of savvy former strip club employees who unite to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients – fills out its cast with a slew of in demand actresses including the likes of Constance Wu, Julia Styles, Lili Reinhart and Keke Palmer.
Sending fans into a frenzy upon its late March 2019 announcement, Lopez only upped anticipation for the STX flick by recently revealing its premiere date. Details inside:
Like millions, we’re all sorts of obsessed with HBO‘s ‘Insecure.’ So much so that we’ve been waiting with feverish anticipation for news on its fourth season.
Well, it’s come and isn’t quite the tea we’d hoped for.
Because, while it’s confirmed that the Issa Rae drama will be back, it’s now been revealed that it won’t hit screens again until 2020.

Wendy Williams is officially moving on to pastures new. And she’s speaking up and out about it.
As widely reported, last week the talk show maven filed for divorce from Kevin Hunter – her husband of 22 years amid an exposé that revealed he’d fathered a newborn child with his alleged mistress of ten years Sharina Hudson.
Naturally, given the media storm that engulfed the 54-year-old, all eyes and ears have been primed to see what she had to say abour the Hot Topic she’s at the center of.
Today, she obliged. Somewhat. See what we mean below…
Over the course of six seasons, Porsha Williams has become one of the most popular stars on the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’
Viewers have watched her experience highs, lows, and all else in between. From her debut as a subservient footballer’s wife, to her subsequent divorce, to rebuilding, getting caught up in scandals, being generally hilarious, and finding love again with fiancé Dennis McKinley. Without doubt, the 37-year-old has kept folk glued to their screens and invested in her narrative.
The latest chapter, her journey to motherhood, is no exception.
And now, in partnership with Bravo, she’ll be chronicling the time leading up to the birth of baby Pilar Jhena on an aptly titled spin-off special named ‘Porsha’s Having A Baby.’
Ahead of its April 28th broadcast, check out the first look trailer…
