Did Y’all See? Kenya Calls 911 On Porsha And Mariah Carey Checks Nick Cannon

Another day, another drama! The week just wouldn’t be right without juicy gossip to discuss and we’re getting into it all in this episode of Did Y’all See? We’re sure you’re on pins and needles to find out what really went down during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion just as much as we are, but this week we at least got another piece of the puzzle. TMZ released a video of Kenya calling 911 to report that she’d been hit in the head by Porsha Williams so, at the very least, we know a fight did go down. Now was it enough to warrant the police? Well, that remains to be seen.

What also remains to be seen is whether Mariah is going to continue to tolerate her juvenile husband acting a fool every chance he gets. From what he said about how she checked him, we’re going to assume that’s a no. Something we don’t have a clear answer on, though, is the case of Johran McCormick, the teen boy slain by the father of his girlfriend who claimed she didn’t know him. Should the girl be charged for his death? Is the father at fault? We’re discussing all that and more in  the video above.

“Keep Your Whore-ish Past To Yourself”: Nick Cannon Caught Heat From Mariah For Speaking On Sex With His Exes

We told you last week that Nick Cannon got a little too comfortable during a conversation with radio host Big Boy. He was asked to name five women he slept with in the past, and he didn’t hesitate to share:

“Name five? That’s easy,” Nick matter of factly replied before running down the list.

Alright, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger—I’m trying to name people that people already know. Um, Selita Ebanks. Oh! Kim Kardashian! Bow! This is easy.”

He also spoke openly about his honeymoon night with Mariah Carey, boldly stating, ““I f***ed the sh*t out of her” after she made him wait to have sexual relations with her until after their wedding. Of course, his statements didn’t sit well with a lot of folks because of the simple fact that, for one, he could have declined answering the questions altogether, and two, as a married man, you shouldn’t really be sharing details about sex with your wife, or anyone from your past for that matter, with the public.

Well, while out doing media rounds this week, including Howard Stern Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers, he was asked what his wife had to say about him giving out too much information. He told Howard Stern:

“She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life because our sex life is amazing.”

And as for what she thought about him speaking on sex with an ex, Kim Kardashian to be specific, he says that Kim isn’t even on Mariah’s radar:

“Honestly, my wife, she doesn’t even know who Kim Kardashian is…She doesn’t pay attention to that. I’ll say this to the day: The most amazing sex I’ve ever had is with my wife.”

But he did tell Seth Meyers that Mariah wasn’t laughing about him speaking on the ladies he laid in the past:

“She (Mariah) said to me, ‘Oh yeah, by the way, could you keep your whore-ish past to yourself if you’re doing any interviews?’ I was like, ‘Got you.’”

Cannon is definitely an open book, but for the sake of respecting his marriage, he might want to close it up from time to time.

 

Humor vs Hatred: Nick Cannon Addresses Whiteface Controversy, Debuts Cheetah Hair

Last week we reported on the pictures of Nick Cannon in whiteface and how some were finding it offensive. Cannon swung by “Good Morning America” this morning to discuss the heat he’s come under recently. See what he had to say.

It was one of those things. Naming my album title and doing the character, I knew it would spark controversy. But I felt like it was a conversation that is needed.

We all have differences. We embrace it.  I talk about it in my standup all the time. It’s not a new conversation but it was the the topic of sensationalism last week. 

Without getting too serious, everybody’s really sensitive when it comes to race. That’s even one of the reasons why I did it. If you want to have that real conversation, it’s even funny they’re using this term white face, like I don’t know what that is.?

I know black face was a term created in 1869 to describe offensive minstrel shows. White face, if you look it up and google it, it’s a ski slope in upstate new York. This term that we have created, I was doing a character impression. Black face is about oppression. If you want to have that conversation, we can have that conversation. 

It’s to have fun and put it out there, yes, we have issues with race in this country. In this world. It doesn’t have to be with hatred. It’s a big difference between humor and hatred. 

 

People get so sensitive. It gets like this whole double standard. It reminds me of the kids a little bit.

When one gets away with something, they point the finger, why does he get to do that? It’s not that big of deal. I’m an artist. As long as I can embrace it, I get the opportunity to create. Everything comes with consequences and a little heat. If I can take the heat, let’s ride.

I wanted to do it from a place of, Yo, this is fun. From the title to the characters. If you listen to the album, it’s so funny. And it’s a bunch of stuff that is probably going to cause controversy but it all comes from a good place.

 

I have to admit Nick Cannon is saying all the right things, if you ask me. Whiteface really isn’t a “thing.” It’s just a term we’ve recently created. Blackface is the term and expression with the racially offensive and oppressive history. So there is a huge difference between Nick making himself look white and a white person putting on “blackface” which has a history of hatred stemming from 1869. Those of us who aren’t white know that, in the past and still today, the very image of minority groups has been used as a justification to mistreat I thought these things were generally understood but like Nick said, there’s always a white person in the wings on some “what if I did…” Kind of like the argument for white people to use the n-word. Sometimes there are just double standards. #KanyeShrug.

What do you think about Nick’s justification of his “whiteface”? Does it make sense to you or do some of you still find it offensive?

Oh! And there’s this new cheetah hair.

I’m just leaving it here partially because it’s out there and something to look at but mostly because the abs were more enticing than the hair itself. That body is right, right?! Yaaassss!

‘I F***ed The S*** Out Of Her:’ Nick Cannon Runs Down The List Of Celebrity Women He’s ‘Smashed’

Nick Cannon has singlehandedly managed to become the king of over sharing, so we’ve kind of grown to expect this sort of behavior from him. However, his recent off-air interview with Big Boy seemed to go a little far—maybe even too far.

“This is LA, that’s the whole purpose: to have sex with actresses, singers, models,” the married actor told Big Boy after being asked how many celebrity women he’s slept with over the years.

After being asked to name five of the women he’s been with, Nick responded:

“Name five? That’s easy,” Nick matter of factly replied before running down the list.

“Alright, Mariah Carey, Christina Milian, Nicole Scherzinger—I’m trying to name people that people already know. Um, Selita Ebanks.”

After naming four women who he publicly dated and most folks assumed that he had more than likely been intimate with anyway, he wrapped up his list.

“Oh! Kim Kardashian! Bow! This is easy.”

Big Boy, who was clearly thrown off by Nick confessing that he’d been with Kim, expressed that he had absolutely no idea. Nick then proceeded to joke that he probably forgot because of Kim’s high sexual number.

“Yes you did [know] Big. You just forget because there’s been a lot of people since me.”

Speaking of his sexual exploits, Nick also revealed that he and Mariah waited until their wedding night to become intimate.

“[The first time was] on our wedding night, honeymoon style in a house in the Bahamas. That’s a wonderful thing. That’s a real woman right there to make you wait until you get married!”

Before you get to ooh’ing and ahh’ing over his admission, you should probably know that he closed the conversation about their honeymoon night by saying, “I f***ed the sh*t out of her!”

Wow, Nick.

The Corny Won’t Quit: Nick Cannon Dons White Face To Promote New Album

What can we say about Nick Cannon? The brotha is fine. ( I know I’m not alone on that, right?) But his capacity for corny is astounding. I guess that’s why he’s been so successful over the years, he’s not easily embarrassed. And when you pull Nick Cannon-like shenanigans, it’s best that you not take yourself too seriously.

So we weren’t surprised that his latest single “Pajama Pants” was an ode to the loungewear women sport in the bedroom.

It features lyrics like:

I’m fresh to death I need an ambulance
I like a bad Puerta Rican on a hand stand
Never talk about what she be wearin off  in the club
I’m talkin’ bout what that b*tch be wearin’ off in my room

In my room, Get it poppin in them pajama pants

Right.

In Nick’s defense, this all could be a joke. After all, it’s a collaboration with “Wild ‘N Out” comedian Timothy DeLaGhetto and the name of the album is White People Party Music. 

So with that in mind, maybe this is why Nick Cannon posted a picture of himself in full on white face to promote his new album.

He included this caption:

It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted!!”

I’m not going to lie, those hashtags are pretty funny. But the image wasn’t enough, Cannon also made a video introducing his new white persona, “Connor Smallnut.”

Lol this dude is nuts.

As you might assume, since black folk rightly express outrage when white people wear blackface, there are some who are calling Nick’s latest stunt racist. I wouldn’t go that far, it’s just silly. And I would love to know what Mariah thinks about all of this.

What do you think about Nick’s whiteface? Is it racist? Do you think this White People Party Music concept is funny?

Nick Cannon, NFL QB Warren Moon Taken For Thousands In NBA Scam

Nick Cannon may be able to spot talent on his show America’s Got Talent, but he was recently unable to spot a con artist. Cannon and NFL quarterback Warren Moon were victims of a scam artist. Cannon was allegedly taken for $15,000.

According to prosecutors, a Los Angeles man named  George French Jones has been charged with about a dozen felonies. He’s connected with an alleged scheme to fraudulently sell season tickets and shares in the Miami Heat basketball team, reports NBC News. Cannon apparently paid money to get “an ownership interest in the Atlanta Hawks,” says a law enforcement source.

 Jones, 45, was named in an 11-count criminal complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by prosecutors with the California Attorney General’s Office who teamed up with the Federal Bureau Investigation, the Los Angeles County Probation Department and the Los Angeles Police Department.  The counts include fraud, grand theft and identity theft.

If convicted on all counts, he could face a maximum of nine years in state prison. Jones’ victims lost in excess of $100,000.

The investigation has been ongoing for a year. It started in March 2013 when security reps for the NBA and the Miami Heat notified the FBI in Miami, alleging that Jones tried to sell a minority interest in the Heat “to several NFL and NBA athletes,” states the complaint.

Former NFL player Jarvis Green was offered a share in the NBA franchise for $25,000. Jones is accused of selling Moon and his representative four court-side seats for $200,000.

In this day and age where a celebrity’s every move can be well chronicled, somehow these celebrities managed to surprise us all by popping up pregnant out of nowhere. No announcement, no save the date, just them, the red carpet, and a baby bump.

Lil Kim

Lil Kim reigned as the Queen Bee of rap in the late 90’s. Although her career took a nosedive following a jail stint for lying under oath, the diminutive star still managed to release new music. She may not be the hottest female rapper around anymore but the Brooklyn emcee will have a new title to her name. Lil Kim popped up at an event during New York Fashion Week earlier this month with a big bun in the oven. She’s a few months into the pregnancy and her boyfriend and daddy to be Mr. Papers revealed she is having a baby boy.

Mariah Carey Admits To Putting Her Kids’ Nannies Through Hell: ‘I Fire Nannies Like This’

Over the years celebrity moms have picked up a pretty bad reputation for treating their kids’ nannies poorly. If you recall, last spring two nannies came forward accusing Kim Porter of abusing them during their stints of employment caring for the twins she shares with hip hop mogul P.Diddy. Though Kim denied the allegations, Mariah Carey has no problem admitting that she can be the employer from hell when it comes to nannies.

“Unfortunately I have to have nannies but I’m very hands-on,” Mariah said during an interview with The Breakfast Club. “I fire nannies like this,” she said snapping her fingers.

She went on to say that while she hates being such a cut-throat, it’s absolutely essential because nannies like to make themselves more important than she is her in childrens’ lives.

“And I hate doing it, but I have to because if they try to make themselves more important in the baby’s mind than me,” she continued.

Mariah also touched on her plans for Valentine’s Day. Apparently, her hubby, Nick Cannon, will be away working.

“He’s not even gonna be home from what I hear now.”

We’d sure hate to be the nannies looking after little Monroe and Moroccan.
