BET Reality shows


After falling out with her family post-”Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is,” and being estranged from husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson after they starred in “Keyshia & Daniel: Family First,” you would think that at this point in Keyshia Cole’s life, she would avoid reality TV like the plague. But those checks must be really nice, because Cole is returning to BET for her third reality show with the network, but this time, it’s going to be all about her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cole’s show will follow her as she tries to juggle her career, motherhood and the way she deals with the demise of her relationship with Gibson. The show was picked up and will air six episodes running at a half hour.

This is all interesting considering that Cole put BET on blast not too long ago for failing to pay her for her work on “Family First.”

I guess they patched things up (and the check finally cleared). 

But she’s not the only one putting her business out there for BET. Nelly, who already stars on “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” will star in a new reality show for the network alongside girlfriend Shantel Jackson (yes, Floyd Mayweather’s ex). However, Nelly will be the main focus as cameras follow him, his business ventures, his children (as well as his late sister’s children, who he takes care of), his rap career, and of course, his relationship with “Miss Jackson.” The show was given the green light for eight episodes at an hour each. After years of trying to keep his personal life private (yes, I’m alluding to his past uber-long relationship with Ashanti that they tried to hide), he’s feeling very open these days…but will you watch? 

[Watch] Keyshia Cole Says She’s Through With Athletes

During her recent Breakfast Club interview, Keyshia Cole revealed that she is open to dating again, even though she’s not currently seeing anyone. But would she be open to dating another athlete? Unsurprisingly, the answer is no. TMZ recently caught up with the “She” singer and asked that very question.

“Would you ever want to date another athlete?” her interviewer questioned.

“No, no,” Keyshia responded.

“Is it difficult dating an athlete?” the cameraman asked.

“Very,” she said. “I don’t even want to meet any.”

I guess that’s not good news for any pro ballers who were looking to put their bids in now that Keyshia is officially done with Daniel. We can’t blame her for not wanting to go down that road again. In other Keyshia Cole news, the Oakland singer released the music video for her new single, “She,” yesterday and well, it’s quite interesting. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Keyshia Cole Reacts To Boobie’s Claims That He Doesn’t Believe In Divorce Because He’s A Christian…

Folks love getting all spiritual after they have screwed up royally. Last week, we told you that Daniel “Boobie” Gibson claimed that he wouldn’t be filing for divorce from his estranged wife, Keyshia Cole, because he’s a Christian and doesn’t believe in it.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.’”

Of course, it’s no secret that Daniel is a believer, but considering that he practically confessed to stepping out on his wife, the idea of him suddenly wanting to rest on biblical principles regarding marriage was slightly comical. This morning, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne informed Keyshia of Daniel’s comments and her reaction tickled me quite a bit.

“He did not say that,” Keyshia responded before laughing. “He did not say that!”

After getting her giggles out, Keyshia seriously responded to his comment.

“It’s a lot of things you should think about before—if you really feel like that in your heart and your soul as a person, as a man, as a father. I know people make mistakes, but you know, you gotta think about those kind of things because ultimately, it’s not worth it. [You gotta learn from your mistakes] at least. How about we do that? Let’s start there. Just let it go and know what you have and let’s keep it moving.”

Keyshia also responded to Boobie publicly confessing that he “failed” her as a husband. Clearly, she ‘s had enough.

“It’s a lot of admitting and a lot of doing wrong. It just gets tired. [And he continues to do it].”

Things are so over between them that Keyshia said that while she hopes he has learned his lesson, she won’t be the one sticking around to find out.

“Recently I told him, ‘I hope you really find that woman and you be good to her.’”

She seems to be handling the split a lot better, which is great.

Daniel Gibson Refuses To Divorce Keyshia Cole: ‘I Am A Christian’

It appears that a divorce between Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson is inevitable, but Daniel says that he has not officially filed yet. Interestingly, someone took it upon themselves to file for him, according to TMZ.

The unnamed person went down to the Los Angeles County Superior Court last week . In the documents, the person cited irreconcilable differences as a cause for the split; however a red flag went up when the person listed Gibson as his own attorney.

What’s even more bizarre is that the address provided in the filing is actually the address of an El Pollo Loco restaurant. TMZ reached out to Daniel about the bogus filing and he revealed that he hasn’t even considered filing for divorce from Keyshia.

“She would have to do it,” he expressed. “I am a Christian. I believe in ’til death do us part.’”

As for the creepy impostor, the ex-NBA star says he intends to press charges. Keyshia, on the other hand, says she’s still planning on going through with the divorce. We can’t figure out why someone would go to the lengths of filing for divorce on Daniel’s behalf just for the hell of it. People are always doing the absolute most.

Stop The Shenanigans: Celebrities Who Let Drama Get In The Way Of Their Talent

The following people on this list all have music that I’ve bumped at one time or another. However, their music and their talents in general often take a backseat due to the drama they get caught up in. Whether they’re bickering with folks on social media or throwing ‘bows in public, these people are too talented to take part in all the shenanigans they enjoy entertaining.



Azealia Banks

Pretty girl. Vicious lyrical abilities. Penchant for drama.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it for the umpteenth time: Azealia Banks is a talented young MC. However, she makes it hard for those who have never heard her music to give her work a chance when she’s focused less on promoting that, and more on calling out everyone from Pharrell to Tiny and Rita Ora on social media.

Keyshia Cole To Officially File For Divorce

It’s been apparent that things are over between Keyshia Cole hubby, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson for quite some time now. Yet, somewhere, deep down inside, we were kind of hoping that the love birds would search within and realize that there’s something left in their marriage worth fighting for. Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case. According to TMZ, Keyshia has plans to officially file for divorce from the Cleveland Cavaliers star as early as next week.

Earlier this month, Daniel opened up about the disintegration of his marriage to the “Enough Of No Love” singer.

“I think that life happened,” Daniel told Rolling Out. “In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs.

With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.”

Keyshia’s reps have yet to comment on the rumors. We hate to see them throw in the towel, but maybe this is for the best.

“It’s Not Fair”: Keyshia Cole Reportedly Trying To Keep Frankie, Neffie And Estranged Siblings’ Reality Show Off TV

Family Therapy

In an exclusive interview with Sister 2 Sister, a source close to Keyshia Cole’s mother and sister, Frankie Lons and Neffie (aka, Neffeteria) Pugh, says that Cole is making it difficult for the two, and her estranged siblings, to get their new reality show, Family Therapy, on television.

The show, which the source says will actually be called Frankie’s Family Therapy, had a teaser trailer that unexpectedly dropped last week. We shared this trailer with you. It showed that the program will follow Frankie, Neffie, sister Elite and Latifia, and brothers Sam and Rob, as they all reunite, live under the same roof, and go through both group counseling, and therapy by themselves. Doesn’t sound like a bad idea, but the images in the trailer included Frankie behaving quite over-the-top, one of the sisters kicking at a glass door during an argument (and the cops coming to break things up), and some very emotional moments. The public reaction to the trailer wasn’t good, and that’s probably because not only did it come off as too much for TV, but Cole’s name was also brought up, though she’s not attached to the show at all.

But the source that chatted with Sister 2 Sister claims that the family wasn’t expecting the trailer to come out so soon, and they didn’t OK having Cole’s name in it. The source wouldn’t specify to Sister 2 Sister how Cole is holding back the show being picked up by networks, aside from saying she’s vehemently opposed to the program, but they say that Family Therapy really doesn’t have anything to do with her, so she should let them continue on with it. The source also confirmed what Cole said months ago about interactions with her family, saying that she is no longer in contact with her mother, and has completely fallen out with her sister Neffe.

All in all, the source says that the family just wants to go through with the show, and they should be able to. “Keyshia brought them into this line of work. To now try to cut them entirely out…It’s not fair.”

“I Was Supposed To Hold Her Down And I Didn’t”: Daniel Gibson On Marriage To Keyshia And Why He Regrets Their Reality Show

Back in March, Keyshia Cole went on The Breakfast Club to talk about her new song, “Rick James,” but spent most of the time talking about controversies surrounding her in the past and present, including the public drama she’s been dealing with in her marriage to NBA player, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. When speaking on their issues and possible future, Cole had this to say:

“I don’t even really know what I wanna do right now. I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t really want to go into it…I’d just rather avoid questions like that for my son’s sake. We’ll know it as the time goes by whats going to happen. You know? This we’re talking about now involves a child…I want the situation to play out. I just want to protect my son. I’ll never be the kind of woman who–No matter how much I dislike this man, it will never be to the point where he can’t see his son. Period. “

Cole has said a lot, both in the media and on social media, but Gibson has remained relatively quiet about accusations of cheating and about her discontent with their relationship, aside from some subliminal postings on Instagram. But he decided to open up about their struggles and where he went wrong in their marriage in an interview with Rolling Out. It’s unclear if things can work out or if they’re already kaput, but Gibson had quite a bit to say:

Went Wrong In Their Marriage:

“I think that life happened. In certain situations, you are a match made in heaven. But at the same time, nothing is perfect — and nobody is perfect. Then in some situations, you aren’t going to be as perfect as some people expect you to be. What happened with me and her was that our relationship was out there for everyone to see. So whenever we were going through our problems, it became public and everyone saw the ups and downs. With us, I think it was just a matter of us growing apart over time. I can’t say that there was one thing that broke us up, but what I can say as a man; when you are in a relationship, and you say those vows, I take full responsibility for everything that didn’t go right.”

Why He Takes Full Responsibility For Their Marital Issues And Cheating Rumors:

“I’m giving you the real answer because I feel like you’re never supposed to allow your marriage to fall apart. Whether it’s the blogs saying I cheated, or if I don’t like your attitude, at the end of the day, when you’re married to somebody, and you say “I do,” it says for better or for worse, and regardless of what comes in your relationship, you’re supposed to work through it. For example, even if you wanted to say that I cheated, you’re still supposed to figure out a way to make that work. So I’m not backing down from anything that people have to say about me, and I’m not taking the easy way out. But I am taking full responsibility for that not being my wife.”

If He Cheated:


Why Keyshia Cole Tells People He Did, And Sings About It In Recent Songs:

“Well, let me put it like this. I won’t say that I didn’t cheat, but I will say that I cheated my wife out of a friend in a lot of situations where I was supposed to hold her down and I didn’t. I cheated my wife out of a lot of different things. I feel like when we got together, I thought I was a man, and I thought I had it all figured out but I didn’t. I think I was like 23 when we met, and so a lot of mistakes that you shouldn’t make as a man in a relationship with your wife, I made. So you can go down the line — I probably made every mistake. The difference between me then and me now is that back then, I probably would have tried to sit here and make an excuse like, “oh it was because of her attitude, and it made me go out and cheat on her.” No, that’s a sucker move — that’s for a coward to say. So I‘m sitting here telling you that regardless of what she did, I married her. I loved her. And none of that other stuff should have happened. We’re supposed to still be together doing it right.”

Why He Waited To Speak And Why He Regrets Doing Their Reality Show:

“Me being the way that I am, and the way that I was raised, I personally felt like love should be private, so I really didn’t want to agree to us doing the show at the beginning. Because I really felt like, when you open up that door, you allow people to be able to hate, or form whatever assumptions they want to about you because you’re putting your life out there. But I felt like it should be private. And, you know, she sings and she sings from that hurt place. I respect what she does, and she has to do that, but as far as I go, I couldn’t care less what somebody has to say about me as a man. The people that know me are the people that matter. And those people know what I’m about and what I stand for. So feel free to call me a stripper-chasing coward who let his family down. But those that know me know what I’m really about and that is never going to change.”

We would like to see these two work things out. Get some counseling. Stay offline. But only they know what’s next for their relationship. Check out Gibson’s full interview with Rolling Out where he talks more about those rumors that he cheated with a stripper, and check out his full photo shoot spread as well.

Not Again: Keyshia Cole’s Mom Frankie And Five Estranged Siblings Deal With Family Drama On New Reality Show, “Family Therapy”

Days like this, I feel bad for Keyshia Cole. If it wasn’t enough that she’s dealing with her marital issues in the public eye (her own doing though), her mother, Frankie, sisters Neffe and Elite, and her other estranged siblings are trying to get a check by airing out family drama for a possible new reality show.

Years after Frankie & Neffe was a hit on BET and created a major rift between Cole and her family, Frankie, Neffe, Elite, and siblings Robert, Latifia and Sam are taking part in a new show called Family Therapy. The pilot hasn’t been picked up by any networks as of yet, and it’s unclear if it will appear as a web series only, but the storyline is oh so messy. It seems that Frankie and her children, many of which she doesn’t have a good relationship with, will live under one roof as they deal with her issues with drugs, try to understand one another, and hopefully be able to come together as a family, all of this with the help of therapist, Susan Rosovsky. Of course, Cole is not involved in this reality show, but her name is mentioned at one point in the trailer for the show.

In a revealing interview with The Breakfast Club in March, Cole explained why she couldn’t associate with her mother and sister, Neffe, anymore:

“I mean, it’s just chaos and I don’t want that around him [son Daniel]. I have to protect him from that type of chaos. I haven’t even spoke to my mom, Frankie, in a minute. They don’t have my number. It’s just a respect thing for one. Last time I had my mom around I sent her through rehab and I tried to help her and I spent a lot of money…and she just took it way too far, yelling in my house. Luckily my child was asleep. After that I was like, ‘Naw.’ You gotta make an adult decision to move that out…”

And she wasn’t kidding about “chaos.” Check out the trailer for the pilot and let us know what you think.

The Apple Fell Far From The Tree: Celebs With Wild Siblings

We all have that one family member who will pop off at the drop of a dime and celebrities are no different. While these famous folks may know how to keep their composure, their wild siblings have no problem throwing down in a heartbeat.

Celebs With Wild Siblings



All anyone has been talking about the past few days is surveillance cameras catching Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z while his wife and her sister Beyonce stood by and watched in an elevator following a Met Gala after party. While there’s no sound to support the video, it’s clear that Solange was none too happy with the rap mogul and let her feelings be known through slaps and kicks. Neither Jay Z, Solange nor Beyonce have released a statement about the incident.
