Musician R. Kelly has been indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse — a class 2 felony — involving four alleged victims, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said Friday. He is scheduled to appear in court Saturday for a bail hearing.
Musician R. Kelly, who has been associated with accusations of abusing young women for more than two decades, has been indicted, two sources with knowledge of the development tell CNN.
Cook County, Illinois, State’s Attorney Kim Foxx will announce charges against Kelly at a news conference at 2 p.m. CT (3 p.m. ET), according to a release from her office. CNN is working to obtain the indictment.
A warrant has been issued for Kelly’s arrest, Chicago police say. The charges handed up in an indictment from a grand jury span from 1998 to 2010, the Chicago Sun-Times said.
The minors involved in the case were between 13 and 16, prosecutors allege, according to the Sun-Times.
A grand jury was convened in Cook County earlier this month in connection with new allegations against Kelly, two sources close to the case told CNN.
That came on the heels of attorney Michael Avenatti announcing he had handed over to the State’s Attorney’s Office a videotape that he said showed Kelly having sex with an underage girl.
Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly, told CNN earlier this month he had not been notified of a grand jury. After being asked about the new tape, he said separately he and his colleagues were unaware of any new information involving Kelly.
CNN has seen the VHS tape that appears to show Kelly having sex with a girl who refers to her body parts as 14 years old.
The newly unearthed footage, which lasts 42 minutes and 45 seconds, is clear and explicit.
What is on the video mirrors some of the alleged acts for which Kelly was arrested in a child pornography case in 2002 when he was 35 and then acquitted six years later.
He has been sued by multiple women accusing him of having sex with them when they were underage. He has strongly denied the accusations, and most cases, with the exception of the trial where he was acquitted, have been settled out of court.
And while he is one of the most successful R&B acts in history, there has been a growing movement against him, including the #MuteRKelly campaign to stop his music being played.
In July 2017, BuzzFeed published an explosive article outlining allegations that Kelly was holding a group of adult women against their will as part of what some of their parents said was a “cult.”
Joycelyn Savage, one of the young women, denied those claims and asked her parents, via a video shared with TMZ, to stop speaking out about her relationship with Kelly.
In January, the release of a docuseries called “Surviving R. Kelly” on Lifetime television helped boost the public campaign against him.
In that series, women said they were kept in abusive sexual relationships.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: S11 ep4 “Pass the Peach, throw shade”



We did! We did! We did!   Shamari Devoe and her Legendary Husband Ronnie, had an open relationship.

So far, so good in season 11.  No major fights, and yes we are still missing Kenya.  

Last night, we begin with Kandi and Todd at Dr Jackie’s office.  Kandi has a couple of eggs and it seem they want another child, via surrogate.  Early in the season daughter Riley said, they don’t need anymore children due to their busy scheduled.   Todd, thinks they should have two surrogates , just in case.  However, Dr Jackie brought him down from that cloud,when she told him a surrogate could cost any where from ninety to one hundred and thirty thousand.    Kandi, said someone told her a surrogate would cost thirty five grand.

Eva, Eva, Eva is talking with her man Mike about the wedding, and Eva wants Nene to go shopping with her.  She seems to have a lot of respect for Nene.  Eva also wants security at this wedding.  ( Could it be her Krazy baby daddy- Kevin McCall?) 

“Porsha Meets Mama Gina”

Image result for this is juicy gif

Hey, hey, hey!  Mama’s look out for their sons and I’m living for Mama Gina’s old school -“Ain’t nobody got TYME for this” shade!  She was direct and couldn’t be shook.

We’ve heard though Kandi’s grapevine that Dennis McKinley moves quick with his women.   So after a few months, Dennis introduces his lovely mother Gina to meet Porsha.   Porsha, is trying to control her crazy azz giddyness. But Mama is intense.  You could almost see the steam rising from the table. 

Seconds after sitting down, Porsha gives Gina a birthday gift (“oh you shouldn’t have”) It’s a Louis Vuitton Wallet.  It could have just been a piece of lettuce.   Gina could care less about a Wallet or anything else. 
Dennis and Porsha failed at trying to change the conversation.

She wants to know whats going on.  So are you two in love already?  You aren’t moving to the alter too quick are you?‘  Has Mama Gina been down this road before?  ‘So how do you all feel about prenups?‘    Porsha nearly choked on her wine.   Let’s be clear,  Mama Gina ain’t no joke.                   “Ain’t no mountain high” 

“The Ladies Who Lunch”

Cynthia seems happy with her long distance man Mike Hill .  They have their own hashtag #Chill   She is having a BBQ with all the ladies and their friends.  

Nene and Marlo arrives first.  With our Marlo still being Extra Extra!  Cynthia tells the other women that Eva has been spreading the rumor that she paid for her former boyfriend Will to date her.   

On route to Cynthia House, is Porsha and her sister Lauren and Shamea Morton. Porsha had filled Shamea in on all the smack Eva talked about her the last time everyone hung out. Porsha tells a pregnant Shamea about stuff Eva has said about her and then tells her to be cool . 

Eva, has been shady this season targeting Cynthia  For weeks, I’ve been wondering would she go up against the heavyweights Nene and Marlo. 
 Well tonight she’s hot air.  Because she couldn’t take on Cynthia. 

Marlo picked at her during a horrible game called “Pass the Peach” a southern version of  “Truth or Dare”  Calling Eva a liar.   Why exactly are we a liar?“Eva shouted. “But you’re definitely extra, and sometimes, you’re extra when it’s not appropriate,” Eva replied. Marlo shot back, “Well, it’s not appropriate to be basic. You’re basic, darling.”  leaving Nene to say ,Eva looked stupid.   Don’t mess with the heavyweights.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta - Season 11

Lost in the party drama was the newest cast  member Tanya Sam, a local businesswoman.

The blogs weren’t overjoyed by the former newest cast member 
Shamari DeVoe last week. She came on to strong.  Perhaps her biggest sin is she seems to have an overblown view of herself and her husband Ronnie (The Legend) DeVoe. 

In her second week she is giving us a little Phaedra Parks, as she is planning an over the top birthday party for her twin sons who are turning one.    We see her at bakery with Mother DeVoe (the mother of the Legend) where they are choosing a cake for the party.   The shrewd, bakery employee suggested two cakes one for each child.  $950.00 will that be cash or charge? 

This week she gives us a little insecurity and vulnerability as she seems to want the approval of Mother DeVoe.   Who is very protective of her high profile son.  She seems to be very open, perhaps too open as she shares details of her husbands infidelity with Mother DeVoe and later with the ladies at Cynthia’s  her choice to have an open marriage where she would explore relationships with women* 

*Her hubby (The Legend) said she could only be with women.

So what do we think about Shamari and Eva?  

Leave, your comments

See ya next Monday

Last week, we met the newest Shamari Devoe and the fans were less than impressed

Real Housewives of Atlanta: S11 EP3 Shamari De Voe Stumbles In


On Twitter, #RHOA fans were asking for the return of  Sheree, Kenya and Phaedra Parks

Shamari DeVoe meets the cast of RHOA

Takes a while to adjust to a new housewife, good or bad we have a relationship with the old housewife,so it takes a minute. Every now there an then, there is a housewife who’s is so likable, they immediately make you forget the old housewife.  Ericka Jane and Lisa Renna over at  #RHOBH and Dorinda Medley from #RHONY come to mind. 

Shamari DeVoes entrance was so poorly received last night  Tweeter was asking for Sheree Whitfield, Kenya Moore and where was PHAEDRA (Parks)!!!

Shamari DeVoe is married to the Legendary (so she reminds us several times ) Ronnie DeVoe, of New Edition and Bell, Biv, DeVoe, who at 51 hasn’t aged    She met him on a one night stand, and they have been together 17 years. (He is 11 years older)  She says, she is the one and only true wife to a legend so many other women are dying to get their hands on.   
She an Ronnie are going to become a power couple like Jay-Z and Beyonce.

 She is also a member of the group Blaque and a mother of uber cute twin boys.  She enters as a friend of Kandi’s. (She was at Riley’s baby shower)  With the help of Kandi they are going to relaunch Blaque.  Kandi wrote one their of the biggest hits.     

I think the turn off factor,is she enters larger then life, being too extra.   Several people on Twitter last night said, they wish they could fast forward her scenes.   Hopefully, she will find her footing, soon. 

The episode begins with the Porsha and the other newby, Eva Marcille at the gym.  Eva is workin to keep her peach by being shady as hell.  I noticed most of her shade is thrown Cynthia Baileys way.  “When was the last time you’ve seen a model with a big booty?”   One wonders, if she can hold her own against the heavyweights, Nene Leakes and Marlo Hampton. Its very clear she thinks Marlo is beneath her.

Gregg Leakes

NeNe & Gregg get good news in his cancer battle

We go with Gregg and Nene to a cancer center in Houston.   He ripps out my heart as he sings “Never give up and never give in” as he walks into the hospital.  Gregg isn’t sure about undergoing chemo as treatment for his colon cancer and wants to consider alternative medicines.  While they have successfully removed the cancer cells, there could be other cancerous cells floating around and the doctor believes chemo is the best treatment. 

Shamari Shade and Ladies

Kandi and Porsha are civil, the two are laughing .(who know’s) Kandi invites all the ladies to Shamari concert.   Even thought Shamari believes the WORLD knows her. Cynthia had to ask Kandi who she was and to point her out on stage.  After the concert is over Cynthia invites everyone to a barbecue.  Oops, I’m sorry a “Bailey Que”  

When Shamari and Ronnie (The Legend) comes over to the table, Nene is clearly not feeling her.  For some reason, Shamari asks  Ronnie  (The Legend) to critique Kandi’s performance with Xscape, which he does at the table in front of people he didn’t know.       For the record, Kandi’s net worth is more than Double the Legendary DeVoe’s.      So who’s schooling,who? 

Shamari & Ronnie give Kandi career advice

All About Dennis McKinley

Dennis McKinley

Everybody talks about everybody.  On a reality show, your words and expressions are memorialized in HD.

Carmon, Kandi’s bestie and former aid is now her insurance agent.   The Old Lady Gang’s restaurant was a hit and now they are slowly becoming a chain with a second OLG restaurant opening soon.  Carmon is meeting Kandi at the new site, to discuss business.  But first things first, a lil gossip. 

Across town, Porsha is meeting with her mom and still squealing’

The Topic for both groups is Dennis.  

Kandi has never met Dennis.  Atlanta is a small town and Kandi has heard things (can’t you just here Mama Joyce saying,” The Streets are talking’)    

At the restaurant and another woman appears, Jami, who also works for Kandi  ( A few years ago Porsha chased Jami out of a Christmas party and attacked Jami and later went into anger management-caught up?)     Jami’s friend had dated Dennis for more than three years   Kandi has “heard”  Dennis falls quickly in love.  He tattoos, his love interests names on his body.   Jami says her friends face is on Dennis’s body.  He likes to give Rolex watches.   Dennis likes to impress his ladies by having someone cook for his ladies.  Or has his sidepieces cook for his main lady.  Jami says you better check his receipts………..

Across town, Porsha’s mom says Porsha’s glowing.  Mom talks about Porsha’s big butt and the size of her new Rolex.  Porsha tells her, Dennis is tattooed her name on his leg and plans to put her face on his back. He’s also having freshly prepared meatloaf sent straight to her door! “This is for real! Like he ain’t goin’ nowhere,” Porsha’s mom is practically in tears about how Porsha finally found the perfect man who has made her so happy and content.

Coincidence GIF - MatthewMcConaughey DallasBuyersClub Coincidence GIFs

At the new OLG restaurant. Jami said her friend found out Dennis was dating Porsha at the same time.  Her friend found out while they were all in Africa at Shamea’s wedding.    According to Kandi (who had never met Dennis) said Dennis was also dating other girls at the same time.  Carmon tells Kandi to leave her mouth shut and “Don’t you say nothing.

Your Thoughts on the new housewife Shamari? and can Eva take Marlo Hampton in the shade wars……

Kracking Up


Donald Trump GIF

 

Reality is slowly sinking into Prezy Poo.  He never really had a grasp on how government worked. 

Despite his best efforts he BLEW it.  He didn’t listen to those seasoned members of the GOP who advised him to talk about the economy, record unemployment. He instead went for FEAR, TERROR and MAYHEM.  As a result, many of his supporters bailed on him and went blue.

If he wants money for a Parade?  he may need approval from some of those low I Q members of Congress.

Money for a wall, that Mexico will eventually pay for? He may need approval from a one or two Mexicans.

What did you say about banning Muslims?  Again perhaps you should talk to the two Muslim members just elected to Congress?

 More than 100  women were elected in Congress last week.  Women were elected into the Senate, for the first time nearly 25% of the Senate is female.  More ladies will be heading States.  At one point in your administration you will need a WOMAN’s approval.  I’m sure you NEVER dreamed you would need permission from a woman.  Welcome to 2019 and beyond and remember, these women will outlive the men in your administration! 

Mr President, You have spent the last few years avoiding Americans. Your administration is filled with people who look like you.  Last last week America came to you. 

Congress writes the checks so , If you need any money, you will need approval from Gay’s, Native Americans, Muslims, Blacks, Asians and Mexicans, all Americans.

Roseanne claps back during ‘Conners’ premiere ‘I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES’ but internet gets the last laugh

Roseanne Barr didn’t take her death well.

As the Roseanne reboot “The Conners ”  made its premiere Tuesday night and confirmed that the disgraced star’s character was good and dead by way of an opioid overdose, Barr shot back on Twitter, “I AIN’T DEAD BITCHES.”

The disgraced comedienne then ranted per usual about being fired from her own show and blasted ABC in a long, drawn out statement with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

 

Here is the full statement posted on Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s Facebook page:

“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of The Conners, all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.

“This was a choice the network did not have to make. Roseanne was the only show on television  that directly addressed the deep divisions threatening the very fabric of our society. Specifically, the show promoted the message that love and respect for one another’s personhood should transcend differences in background and ideological discord. The show brought together characters of different political persuasions and ethnic backgrounds in one, unified family, a rarity in modern American entertainment. Above all else, the show celebrated a strong, matriarchal woman in a leading role, something we need more of in our country.

“Through humor and a universally relatable main character, the show represented a weekly teaching moment for our nation. Yet it is often following an inexcusable — but not unforgivable — mistake that we can discover the most important lesson of all: Forgiveness. After repeated and heartfelt apologies, the network was unwilling to look past a regrettable mistake, thereby denying the twin American values of both repentance and forgiveness. In a hyper-partisan climate, people will sometimes make the mistake of speaking with words that do not truly reflect who they are. However, it is the power of forgiveness that defines our humanity.

“Our society needs to heal on many levels. What better way for healing than a shared moment, once a week, where we could have all enjoyed a compelling storyline featuring a witty character – a woman – who America connected with, not in spite of her flaws, but because of them. The cancellation of Roseanne is an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive.”

But the internet got the last laugh by responding to Roseanne’s unhinged tweet:

 

 

 

“Oh Look, Black people in the White House”

First things first!  Kanye !    I’m not gonna beat up on someone who is clearly going through things. One day is bi-polar and the next day he was misdiagnosed (not bi-polar).  After all this is America, he is allowed to worship anyone .  If there was a poll, I was say support for the Kanye-Trump love fest would be minus twenty per sent?

There are poor people who are reaching deep inside their pockets to donate money to  mega churches so that the Preacher or Pastor can buy a Private Jet or Rolls Royce, so who are we to judge.  Now,Brown’s support of the prez, confounds me, but this is America!

Brown and West, black men in the oval office.  This photo opt ,wasn’t for African Americans. ITS THE MIDTERMS.  The pic’s were  for the President’s base.  See, black people love me !  Did yo see him?   You saw him, right!  “I thought Kanye was gonna do me ,right there in the oval office.” 

“A shit show in HD”

A working lunch where they talked about problems in Chicago, Starring Kanye West and co starring  Football Great, Actor Jim Brown, both reside in LOS ANGELES COUNTY  CALIFORNIA!

If your looking for logic try Pokemon!  Misty and Mimikyu would know to invite leaders from Chicago and Pikachu would acknowledged those people effected by Hurricane Michael.

If there is a bright side.   Kanye made history yesterday.  (Yes, he did)

 He is  the first person to publicly say “motherfucker” in the president’s office.

Twista!

Fashion Week Throwdown: Nicki Minaj Says Fight With Cardi B Was ‘Mortifying and Humiliating’


 Nicki Minaj, Cardi B

The hip-hop star addressed the incident on her Queen Radio show: “I could not believe how … we made ourselves look.”

 

By: Shirley Halperin\Variety

 

Nicki Minaj took to the airwaves on Monday afternoon to address her fight with Cardi B at a Fashion Week event in New York City on Friday. Speaking on Beats 1’s Queen Radio, which can be heard on Apple Music, Minaj said she found the incident “mortifying and humiliating” especially considering it took place in front of “upper echelon people who have their lives together.”

Responding to the claim that Minaj had made disparaging remarks about Cardi’s newborn daughter, Minaj said, “It’s all lies,” adding, “I would never ridicule anyone’s child. [It’s] so sad for someone to pin that on somebody. … I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting. … These lies are ridiculous.”

Using her real name (Onika Tanya Maraj), Minaj added: “It’s crazy for me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. … I was wearing a Vauthier gown off the mother f—in’ runway and I could not believe how humiliating it all felt — how we made ourselves look.”

Addressing Cardi directly, Minaj lambasted: “You came into my f—in culture. I never had to bang a DJ to play my songs. You call black women roaches. Real bitches never attack a woman. You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny. Get this woman some f—in help. This woman’s at the highest point in her career and she’s throwing shoes?

Later in the broadcast, the topic of Minaj’s previous feud with Remy Ma came up and the rapper offered that, while she doesn’t always have an opportunity to defend herself, it sometimes gets worked out in her music, or “on wax.”

The star-studded Fashion Week party where the incident took place on Friday was billed as the Harper’s Bazaar Icon bash.

In one of several videos posted to Twitter, Cardi B  wearing a red dress, can be seen lunging towards Minaj before throwing a shoe at the rapper as their security teams rush to break it up.

Sources confirmed to Variety that it was, in fact, the two hip-hop artists involved in the melee, which happened just as the red carpet shuttered.

Cardi B  was later photographed with a large bruise above her right eye as she left the party. The back of her dress was also torn.

Minaj, who was unharmed in the encounter, was quickly escorted downstairs by Minaj’s security team.

Insiders confirm to Variety that Cardi B ’s bump on her forehead was the result of an elbow from one of Minaj’s security guards.
