Juanita Bynum’s ex-husband Bishop Thomas Weeks III remarried over the weekend in a quiet ceremony. Weeks, head of Global Destiny Worldwide, an international church empire, chose to keep the nuptials hush hush, inviting only his church family and friends instead of the media spotlight that followed him during the stormy break-up of his marriage to pastor Juanita Bynum in 2008. His new bride, Christina Glenn is a self-described prophetess, who like Bynum has a ministry of her own. Weeks has incorporated Glenn into his enterprise, which hawks everything from videos to Christian conference tickets and the couple even appears together on a videotaped seminar showing Christians how to start loving relationships called “You Can Begin Again.”
In a bizarre move, Weeks chose to have a private ceremony while offering to sell his wedding video online for $10. In comparison, his wedding to Bynum was an extravagent million dollar ceremony that ended in drama. Being that Weeks is the man behind Juanita Bynum’s “Domestic Violence” campaign, we can only pray that his new ‘prophetess’ bride can foresee the violence way before it begins.
The newlyweds are now on their honeymoon in an undisclosed location.
NeNe Leakes says shes pissed off about Bravo’s portrayal of her during the 2nd season of the hit series The Real Housewives of Atlanta and she’s not taking it anymore! Leakes, who is shown during the final episode arguing with fellow castmates Kandi Burruss and allegedly choking Kim Zolciak says it’s not fair that she’s being made out the be the villain. In a recent Essence interview, NeNe lets it all out about how the show is scripted (no surprise) and edited in a way that’s not flattering to her true self:
Why are you so upset about the show’s portrayal of you now?
Yes, I know that’s what they do, but the first season they didn’t edit me. It happened this season because we have a different show runner and this season has been a lot more planned and scripted. Last season they just let us go which made for a great show, but this time around, the show runner will say something like, you need to go over there and talk to Kim about “Tardy for the Party.” They’ve also been making a lot of changes to the sequence of events. For instance, we all arrived to Sheree’s fashion show late because there was a huge car accident, and when we arrived they all ushered us to our seats and the show began immediately, but when you see the episode they show me talking to Kandi which is not what happened.
Frederick Richardson, the man accused of killing Ashley “A.J. Jewell during a brawl in the parking lot of the Body Tap strip club, has been freed on bond. Richardson appeared in front of a judge today (Tuesday, Oct. 20), and left the Fulton County Jail after Magistrate Judge Karen Woodson set bond at $10,000. Richardson will not return to court until he’s indicted.
Jewell died at a local hospital on October 5th, just moments after the fight. Richardson was arrested and held without bond in the case a day later. Specifics of Richardson’s are not being revealed, however one can only assume that the Fulton County coroner’s report which stated that Sickle Cell disease may have caused AJ’s death, was a contributing factor in the judges decision.
Rihanna has announced the completion of her fourth original studio album, Rated R, ans has dropped the first single called Russian Roulette today (10/20) and the video, directed by Anthony Mandler, will premiere on ABC primetime.
The album is scheduled for release November 23rd and the song, written and produced by fellow Def Jam artist Ne-Yo and produced by Chase & Status, is already tearing up these internet streets. Rihanna’s vocals are astounding on the track and if this is a sample of what’s to come, Rated R is already platinum!
I ran across this convenience store surveillance video of a seriously intoxicated dude attempting to purchase a case of beer. He staggers his way to the cooler, picks up his twelve pack, but falls down and can’t get up. [I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!] A few customers come to his aid, but no one lends him a hand off the floor! They all just stand and gawk at the man as he attempts to get back on his feet. I’ve never seen anything like it….and I don’t think it was merely alcohol that was influencing his bizarre behavior. You’ve got to see it to believe it.
Whitney Houston was left red-faced and unsupported after a strap on the back of her long silver gown snapped open midway through her live performance on Saturday night’s ‘X Factor’. The diva was in the middle of singing her hit, “Million Dollar Bill”, on the U.K.-based television show, when the strap suddenly popped.
The wardrobe malfunction caused Whitney to stop briefly and fumble with the strap but like the trooper she is, she didn’t miss a beat and continued on with her song. Whitney later shrugged off the incident, as she jokingly stated to host Dermot O’Leary afterwards, “I sang myself out of my clothes.”
