Welp… the ‘highly anticipated’ Aaliyah biopic was a total fail… at least in the eyes of the twitterverse!
‘Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B’ aired last night (November 15, 2014) on LifetimeTV and the television network’s treatment of the life & times of Aaliyah Haughton was not exactly as bad as they say, but it was bad enough to be totally hilarious.
The film was terribly cast, horribly written and being that Aaliyah’s family was dead set against it (click HERE if you missed that), there was no Aaliyah music anywhere in the flick.
Lifetime also tiptoed around Aaliyah’s scandelous relationship with R. Kelly, to whom she married when she was 15 (he was 27), treating it as a love story gone awry. One scene even included a heart-to-heart between the pair where Aaliyah (played by Alexandra Shipp) states, “Eighteen feels like an eternity from now.” *sigh*

NEWSFLASH! Usher Raymond has a sex tape out in the universe and it features none other than his ex-wife, Tameka Foster Raymond!
I found out about the existence of the video way back in 2011, when Usher’s attorney sent over vague letter threatening anyone who dared release the ‘stolen’ footage that they claimed probably didn’t exist.

For the record, I know for a fact that there IS a freaky video floating around which Usher claims was on one of the macbooks that was stolen out of his SUV at Lenox Square Mall back in 2010.
I’m sure Usher’s insurance cut him a HUGE check, after he listed his lost property loss of over a million dollars!

Whatever the case, it seems terribly odd that the video (s) would surface now don’tcha think?

Earlier this week Evelyn Lozada delivered her newborn son and sadly many online and off referred to the innocent infant as her ‘retirement plan’.
Today, Wendy Williams dished about the baby’s birth during the Hot Topics segment of her show, and she stated that Evelyn just gave birth to a “cash register”… *sigh*
Evelyn, clearly tired of the jokes, didn’t like that at all and hit the tweets to respond.

In a recent interview, Kandi reveals why Mama Joyce turned on her fiancé Todd Tucker and how her Mom’s negative attitude has unfortunately interfered in making arrangements for the wedding.
But wait… while YOU may think Mama Joyce has every right to feel the way she does about her daughter’s boo, Kandi seems to think that she only feels that way because of something talk show host Wendy Williams put out in the atmosphere.
