WEEKEND WRAP-UP! Uncle Russell Defends Rihanna! Andy Cohen’s Message To Oprah! + MORE!
Hey loves! If you celebrate it, I’m sure you all are enjoying your Mother’s Day with friends and family! The celebs got into quite a few things over the course of the last week and these are just a couple you might have missed. They never cease to leave us hanging for idle chitchat!
Royce and Her Social Media Life
Basketball Wives star Royce Reed is pretty much infamous when it comes to her Twitter account these days. About two or three weeks ago, she found out via Twitter that her boyfriend Dez had been sending pretty racy messages to his child’s mom. They managed to work it out but on Saturday night, she went on a mini-rant about toxic people and the need to remove them from your life. She then went on to say that she was deleting her account in three days and amending that to delete it right in the moment. Meanwhile, her “boyfriend” was tweeting a random rapper’s lyrics about being “too cute” for just one girl. I “love” how these people live their relationships through social media. This is what it’s come to.
Mama Tina’s Big Mother’s Day Plans
Now that both of her daughters are mothers, Tina Knowles told US Weekly that the family will be together and they’re all excited because it is Beyonce’s first Mother’s Day. So what are they doing today? Well, Miss Tina said she wanted to put her Southern roots to good use by making a traditional soul food meal as well as her favorite dish, gumbo. Sounds delish! Don’t be surprised to see me trying to get a plate, lol!
Russell Simmons Has RihRih’s Back
I swear, Russell sometimes comes out of nowhere with his random feelings. This time, he goes right for the necks of artists who have been allegedly been attacking Rihanna for her current lifestyle. Posted on GlobalGrind, Russell says they “can’t be mad she was seen walking out of Ashton Kutcher’s house late one night because you know if you were seen walking out of Adriana Lima’s house late one night, you would be in the studio the next day rapping about it.” Russell said he’s not trying to diss anybody but let Rih just live her life and have fun. Now, I have an important question: What rappers are even talking bad about her to the point that Russell needed to write about it?
Andy’s Advice To Oprah
We all know that Oprah’s OWN Network isn’t exactly working in the way it was expected to but since Oprah might not be listening to us, maybe she’ll hear out fellow successful television exec, Andy Cohen. The Bravo programming head honcho/host of all hosts was on SiriusXM last week and offered this: “Here’s the first thing I would do and it’s the first thing I would have done two years ago: put on freaking reruns of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ The greatest talk show in the history of talk shows.” He says he knows there might be some rights issues but it would still be his big push. He says a lot more that you can check out on Huffington Post. Andy, you definitely aren’t alone in this thought but you might be one of the few in the public eye to actually say it.
Is Usher Running Out of Steam?
Some of you long time fans might be upset with me but after watching Usher’s Saturday Night Live performances, I’m convinced that unless he switches to “adult r&b,” he’s going to have a really hard time selling more albums in big numbers. He performed “Scream” and “Climax” to support the release of his new album Looking 4 Myself, set to be released on June 12th. He looked pretty winded on stage and was having some trouble hitting the notes. Miss Info has both performances up – you be the judge.
Eva Marcille’s New Boo
Well wait now, I didn’t know Eva and Flo-Rida broke up! But I guess she’s definitely moved on to the next one because The YBF has a couple of pictures of the new couple kissing outside The Grove in Los Angeles. No word on this young man’s name but he looks like a cutie. Eva doesn’t have bad taste in terms of looks when it comes to men (minus Flo-Rida) because if you’ll recall, Lance Gross is also her ex-boyfriend.
Introducing: Ab Soul
There’s been a bit of resurgence of California rappers lately and Ab Soul is right in the midst of them. He’s down with the crew that includes SchoolboyQ and Kendrick Lamar who are equally as dope. Let me say this: If you aren’t into hip-hop, Ab might be a little “tough” for you with his language. But if you’re into hip-hop and looking for some new music, check him out! He and Kendrick recently released a song from Ab’s new project Control System called “ILLuminate” that rings OFF!
