#RHoA: Kandi Burruss Shares Scandalous Photos And Todd Tucker Approves Of ‘RHOA’ Star’s Racy Turn!
Kandi Burruss dropped a few risqué pictures featuring Deelishis from VH1’s hit reality TV show, Flavor of Love. Todd Tucker is loving the photo shoot and happily let his gorgeous wife know that no one is ready for what she has in store.
In one of the raunchy images, both ladies are wearing lingerie and Deelishis, whose real name is Chandra Davis, has one of her legs placed in a very unexpected place.
Deelishis told her fans that “the pictures were taken in Kandi and Todd’s dungeon.”
Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star can remember the drama that Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams caused by mentioning that dungeon last season.
Kandi gave a clue of what she is cooking by writing: “All I have to say is you’d want to be in Atl on Oct. 12. I’m putting together something fun, over the top, & very entertaining. Who’s coming? Learned a few tricks from @magiccity_takers.”
One fan said: “Love Kandi. Never know what she has cooked up. This must be the dungeon I’m ready and please plan on either Friday Saturday those are my days off MGMT.”
Another commenter stated: “Mothers are sexual beings and enjoy their sexual side. Damn!! All of you get on my nerves with that. How do you think she became a mother? Damn, she wasn’t from being a nun at a convent. Kandi I’m proud of you a lot of women and men could use this maybe their marriage wouldn’t be dead and partners slipping and dipping.”
Some find the pictures too scandalous, but Kandi has some defenders.
#Empire: Season 5 Cast Promo Photos EMPIRE
Golden Globe-nominated EMPIRE continues to be one of the most popular and acclaimed shows on television. A powerful drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop music, the show revolves around the Lyons and their media company, Empire Entertainment.
In Season Four, EMPIRE’s explosive twists and turns resume, as Empire Entertainment embarks on a celebration of its 20th anniversary. LUCIOUS (Terrence Howard) makes his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, and all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious’ nurse, Claudia (guest star Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties. While Lucious struggles with his recovery, COOKIE (Golden Globe winner Taraji P. Henson) begins to revisit the most challenging time of her life – her 17 years in prison – in a series of flashbacks. Throughout the season, Lucious, Cookie and their three sons will be forced to take a hard look at their choices, both past and present, in order to secure their legacy and save their Empire.
In true Lyon fashion, Season Four will be filled with exciting new music, splashy events and high-profile guest stars. In addition to Moore’s return, Phylicia Rashad will reprise her role as Diana Dubois, who, along with her son, Angelo (returning guest star Taye Diggs), launches an elaborate plan to take revenge on the Lyons. Forest Whitaker also join the cast for a multi-episode arc as Eddie Barker, a charismatic music icon and Lyon family friend.
From Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television, EMPIRE was created by Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels and Emmy Award winner Danny Strong, and is executive-produced by Daniels, Strong, Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer, Ilene Chaiken, Francie Calfo, Sanaa Hamri and Brett Mahoney.

#HipHopNews: Birdman Apologizes To Lil Wayne At Lil Weezyana Fest
Birdman publicly apologized to Lil Wayne on stage at the fourth annual Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans on Saturday (Aug. 25). With Weezy by his side, the Cash Money boss took the mic and issued an apology in front of the crowd of thousands at Champions Square.
“I knew this day was gon’ come, but I didn’t know when it was gon’ come,” said Baby. “But this ni**a right here, the best ni**a, the realest ni**a, the illest ni**a. And I wanted to apologize to my ni**a worldwide.”
The two then embraced before Birdman pledged his loyalty to Wayne. “That ni**a put his life in my hands and I’ma keep it real with that ni**a, we gon’ do this shit till the day we die. This YMCMB for death,” he continued before performing the Big Tymers’ “Still Fly.”
The apology comes after Birdman and Lil Wayne settled their highly-publicized beef. Wayne sued Birdman and Cash Money for $51 million in 2015, seeking release from his contract. The suit was settled for an undisclosed amount in June, and the long-awaited Carter V may see a release before the end of 2018.
“We’ll get that this year,” Birdman told Rap-Up in February. “I’m guaranteeing you gon’ get it this year.”
#ICON Janet Jackson shows off her ASMR skills in new interview
Janet Jackson experimented with ASMR in a new interview for 102.7 KIISFM.
ASMR, or autonomous sensory meridian response, is an Internet phenomenon that features people making soft sounds, such as light tapping or whispering, to spark a tingly feeling in listeners. ASMR vloggers have developed a cult following with their videos reaching millions of views.
102.7 KIISFM asked Jackson to put her signature whispery voice to the test by having her answer questions ASMR-style.
Jackson revealed her favorite new artists to listen to (Daniel Caesar, H.E.R, SZA), her favorite restaurant in Los Angeles, her hope to collaborate with Bruno Mars and more by whispering into a microphone. In between answers, she tapped and scratched objects like a true ASMR vlogger.
Jacksonville shooting suspect David Katz hospitalized for mental illness, court records say
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police have identified 24-year-old David Katz as the suspect in a shooting in Jacksonville on Sunday that left Katz and at least two others dead.
Here's everything we know about Katz so far.
EA Sports confirmed that the shooting took place during a "Madden NFL 19" competition. The competition was being held at GLHF Game Bar, located at the Jacksonville Landing outdoor mall complex.
Authorities were called to the scene around 1:30 p.m. local time after they say Katz opened fire with a single firearm.
In a video stream of the competition, a sound that appears to be gunshots can be heard before the stream cuts off.
A witness told local television station WJXX that the shooting started after an argument over the tournament. ABC has not been able to independently verify that claim.
Authorities said Katz died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
MENTAL ILLNESS TREATMENT
Court records obtained by The Associated Press show that a man accused of killing two people and then himself at a video gaming competition in Florida had been hospitalized for mental illness.
Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as a teenager he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and that he was prescribed anti-psychotic and anti-depressant medications.
The records show Katz's parents disagreed deeply on how to care for their troubled son. Katz's father claimed his estranged wife was exaggerating symptoms of mental illness as part of the couple's long-running and acrimonious custody battle. They divorced in 2007.
Investigators have found the suspect's vehicle and say he stayed in the area the night before. The FBI searched a south Baltimore home on Sunday evening belonging to Katz's father, the Associated Press reports.
Chief Mike Williams with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department just revealed that David Katz was armed with two firearms - a .45 caliber, a 9mm and extra ammo when he committed Sunday's shootings. He only used one of those firearms in the shooting though, and it was outfitted with an aftermarket laser sight. ATF agents said Katz legally purchased both weapons within the month of August in Baltimore from a licensed dealer.
There is video surveillance from inside the restaurant that reveals Katz targeted the gamers and then took his own life.
Authorities have searched his hotel room and retrieved items from it but did not reveal what hotel he stayed at on Saturday night. They don't know yet if Katz traveled to Jacksonville alone or with someone else.
There is no indication that he planned this attack before he committed it on Sunday. So far, they have found no notes from Katz.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Charles Spencer said Katz's parents are fully cooperating with FBI agents in Baltimore.
BALTIMORE HOME RAIDED
Katz lives in south Baltimore, according to local media reports.
An upscale townhouse raided overnight by the FBI belongs to Katz's father, the Associated Press reports. The home is located near Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Reporters who gathered outside the house did not see the FBI removing any bags of evidence.
KATZ DESCRIBED AS 'OFF' BY FELLOW GAMER
EA Sports' website listed a player named David Katz as a 2017 championship winner.
Police confirmed that Katz had won a Madden tournament in the past. They said he was staying in town for the game.
A fellow gamer on Monday described Katz as "kind of different" to the Associated Press.
"Something was off about him," said Shane Kivlen, whose best friend was killed in the shooting.
Kivlen described Katz as smart but said that he did not communicate much with other gamers, either online or face-to-face at competitions.
Fan Charged After Rushing Stage at Beyonce and Jay-Z Concert in Atlanta

Beyonce’s spokeswoman Yvette Noel-Schure says the singer and Jay-Z are fine.

Avicii's Family Creates Digital Memory Board
It's been four months since Avicii's untimely death. In the time that's passed, musicians and loved ones alike have paid tribute to the DJ, born Tim Bergling. Aside from social media posts and performance homages, the Bergling family has amassed thousands of emails and letters from fans around the world and decided to create a space for anyone to post their memories of the artist for the world to see.
Avicii's official website has become that outlet. The site is now an open-source memoriam for those to leave notes and images to honor the Swedish producer.
"Tim created music that brought people together with timeless memories from all over the world," the website states. "We created this space so you could share your memories with us and let the world know what Avicii meant to you. His music and your memories are forever."
Avicii died in the Middle Eastern country of Muscat, Oman on April 20 from self-inflicted wounds after cutting himself with a shard of glass from a broken bottle. He was 28 years old. Though the news came to a surprise to the public, his family described him as a "fragile artist" in a statement concerning his death.

A Famous Director Once Asked Laverne Cox If Trans Actors Even Existed
Few people recognize the importance of trans representation in Hollywood more than Laverne Cox.
“I think part of the thing that has kept casting directors and producers from casting trans people to play trans parts, and ideally to play other parts that aren’t just trans, is that they don’t think we exist,” the trans actress told Ebony Magazine in an interview published Monday.
“I remember a famous director once said when he was asked why he didn’t hire a trans actor to play a trans character, he said, ‘Do they even exist?’” said Cox, best known for playing Sophia Burset in “Orange Is The New Black.”
Cox’s interaction with the unnamed director reflects a larger issue that has plagued Hollywood. Dozens of cisgender people have played trans characters over the years, including Jeffrey Tambor in the TV series “Transparent,” Felicity Huffman in the 2005 film “Transamerica” and Jared Leto in 2007′s “Dallas Buyers Club” (for which he won the Best Actor Oscar).
Most recently, actress Scarlett Johansson came under fire for taking the role of a trans man in the upcoming film “Rub & Tug.” As the criticism mounted, Johansson dropped out of the movie.
When we are casting people who are not trans to play trans characters, it’s sending the message that trans women aren’t really women, trans men aren’t real men, that non-binary people don’t exist.
Cox told Ebony that trans actors playing trans characters (and cis characters) will affect how the public views the trans community.
Given that the vast majority of Americans have said they don’t personally know a transgender person, everything that most of them “learn about transgender people, they learn from the media,” Cox said. “When we are casting people who are not trans to play trans characters, it’s sending the message that trans women aren’t really women, trans men aren’t real men, that non-binary people don’t exist.”
The best example of just how important representation really is, Cox said, is the reaction she’s received from many trans fans of her portrayal of Sophia on “OITNB.”
“I can’t tell you how many trans people I’ve gotten letters and emails from saying, ‘I now believe it’s possible to be a working trans actor because I saw you on television. I came out to my family because I saw you on television. I didn’t commit suicide because I saw you on television,’” Cox said. “That’s the difference it makes when you have diverse representation.”
Head over to Ebony to read Cox’s full interview.
Mariah Carey Teases New 'Secret Project'
In a teaser video, shared to her Twitter on Sunday (August 26), the "We Belong Together" singer is shown sitting on a bed filled with high-heels and jewelry as a man says in the background, "So, we are shooting a secret project..." Mariah then says "can't see the ensemble" and playfully shushes herself.
Mariah teased her secret project just before she opened up to People about her upcoming album. “I’ve been working on my new album for a while," she said. "This is a labor of love and I’m really excited. This is me at this moment in my life being able to express myself as a writer and a singer. I’m just really in a good place.”
“My fans just want to hear me express myself and speak from the heart and sing from the heart,” she added. “Some of the record is lighthearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things.”
Mariah has a lot on her plate these days. When she's not working on new music, she's hitting the stage for her "The Butterfly Returns” residency in Las Vegas, which recently got extended into 2019 with new dates in February. “I’ve been loving it so much,” she said about her show. “A lot of the fans who have come out to see it were really happy having a little more diversity. I want to make it really impromptu and surprise the people who have come out again and again to see the show.”
Mariah is set to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas next month. The two-day festival will be held Sept. 21 and 22 at the T-Mobile Arena.
‘The Conners’: John Goodman Says Roseanne Barr Character Will Be Killed Off: Report
When talking about the new iteration of the series and his character Dan, the drywall contractor and Roseanne’s husband in the original series and revival, told the publication, “It’s an unknown. I guess he’ll be mopey and sad because his wife’s dead.”
ABC has not confirmed how Barr would be written off the show, which the network abruptly canceled after Barr’s racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama. ABC described Barr’s comment as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values” and axed the series as it was going into production on its second season.
Barr has no financial or creative involvement in the new series after reaching a settlement with series producer Tom Werner.
ABC has described Barr’s exit only as “a sudden turn of events”: On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapple with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.
The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne revival cast. Along with Goodman as Dan, Laurie Metcalf (“Jackie”), Sara Gilbert (“Darlene”), Lecy Goranson (“Becky”) and Michael Fishman (“D.J.”) will reprise their characters.
Louis C.K. Performs For First Time Since Sexual Misconduct Allegations
According to the New York Times, C.K. surprised audiences at the Comedy Cellar in New York City, a spot he frequented pre-#MeToo accusations. The audience welcomed the disgraced comedian as he took the stage at 11 PM for a 15-minute set, but he did not address or mention the allegations.
In November of last year, five women came forward in the pages of The New York Times about how the comedian masturbated in front of them. C.K. next issued a statement in response to the sexual misconduct saying it was true “And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.”
In the wake of the accusations, C.K. was dropped by all his reps and he lost his production deal with FX. In addition, Orchard canceled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy. He also lost deals with Universal, Netflix, and HBO
