OH SNAP! Lupita Nyong'o: 'Harvey Weinstein asked me to RUB HIM DOWN'?!? πŸ‘€ 😱 πŸ˜’


Lupita Nyong'o: Harvey Weinstein asked me to RUB HIM DOWN?!? πŸ‘€ 😱 πŸ˜’
Uh Oh? The Sistas now have claims against Harvey too! Lupita Nyong’o is the latest actress to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.
In an emotional op-ed published in The New York Times Thursday, the Oscar-winning actress details a series of alleged uncomfortable encounters with the disgraced mogul dating back to her days at the Yale School of Drama.

In a statement Weinstein said the movie mogul remembered these encounters: “Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry. Last year, she sent a personal invitation to Mr. Weinstein to see her in her Broadway show Eclipsed.”

She says she first met Weinstein while at a 2011 awards ceremony in Berlin while she was still a student. The two were introduced through an intermediary, according to Nyong’o, who says in their first encounter she found him to be “very direct and authoritative, but also charming.”

Shortly after their first meeting, the actress says she received an invitation to a film screening at his family’s home in Westport, Conn., which was not far from where she was living at the time. Nyong’o claims she met Weinstein’s driver in the town of Westport, and was informed that she and the producer would be having lunch at a restaurant before the screening. “I did not think much of this,” she says.

When they arrived, Nyong’o says she sat down with Weinstein, who allegedly became frustrated with her when she declined to order an alcoholic beverage. She claims the producer ordered a vodka and diet soda for himself and urged her to do the same. When she declined, she says he forced the waiter to bring the drink anyway, and when it arrived, “Harvey told me that I needed to drink.” The two continued to have a back-and-forth about the drink until Nyong’o says Weinstein eventually gave up, calling her “stubborn.”

After lunch, they went back to Weinstein’s home, where she met his “domestic staff and his young children.” Then she says Weinstein assembled the family and put the movie on for everyone to watch. About 15 minutes later, Nyong’o says Weinstein “came for me, saying he wanted to show me something.” She claims she initially protested, but in the interest of avoiding another back-and-forth argument in front of his children, she eventually relented.

“Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage,” she claims. “I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times.”

Nyong’o writes that she rationalized the situation because at her drama school, it was not unusual for actors to give each other massages as a technique “to understand the connection between body, mind and emotion.”

She says she then began to rub his back in order to “buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation.” But, she writes, “Before long he said he wanted to take off his pants. I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable. He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that.”

Weinstein allegedly relented, once again calling her stubborn, and Nyong’o says she did her best to laugh off the incident but still felt uneasy. “I was after all on his premises, and the members of his household, the potential witnesses, were all (strategically, it seems to me now) in a soundproof room,” she explains.

Before leaving that day, Nyong’o says Weinstein gifted her with a boxed collection of  The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, an HBO show he allegedly told her she would be “right for.” But, she writes, “I later found out that the show had not been on the air for some time.”

Nyong’o says she didn’t initially know “how to process” the massage. “I reasoned that it had been inappropriate and uncalled-for, but not overtly sexual,” she explains. “I was entering into a business where the intimate is often professional and so the lines are blurred. I was in an educational program where I was giving massages to my classmates and colleagues every day. Though the incident with Harvey had made me uncomfortable, I was able to explain and justify it to myself, and shelve it as an awkward moment.”

Interested in the chance at starring on the HBO show, and hoping to get their relationship back on professional grounds, Nyong’o says she later invited Weinstein to a school production. “Perhaps that way he would really see what I had to offer, and he would see my colleagues, too,” she explains. Weinstein initially accepted the invitation, according to the actress, who says he ultimately ended up canceling last minute.

To make up for canceling, Nyong’o says Weinstein invited her, along with some male friends, to a reading of his Broadway play Finding Neverland. After the reading, the actress, her friends and Weinstein went to dinner but didn’t stay long. “He was definitely a bully, but he could be really charming, which was disarming and confusing,” she says. “I left feeling that perhaps he had learned my boundaries and was going to respect them.”

But a few months later, she says Weinstein invited her to another screening, and when they went to dinner afterwards at the Tribeca Grill, the producer allegedly gave her an ultimatum for sex. At first, Nyong’o, who was expecting it to be a group dinner, says she was met at the restaurant by a female assistant. But when Weinstein arrived, the woman “immediately disappeared.”

Before their food arrived, Nyong’o says Weinstein “announced: ‘Let’s cut to the chase. I have a private room upstairs where we can have the rest of our meal.’ I was stunned. I told him I preferred to eat in the restaurant. He told me not to be so naΓ―ve. If I wanted to be an actress, then I had to be willing to do this sort of thing. He said he had dated Famous Actress X and Y and look where that had gotten them.”

When she declined, Nyong’o says Weinstein replied, “You have no idea what you are passing up.” She says she answered, “With all due respect, I would not be able to sleep at night if I did what you are asking, so I must pass.”

At this point, she says, “His whole demeanor changed.” Then she says Weinstein told her they were “two ships passing in the night,” before adding, “So we are done here. You can leave.”

Without eating, Nyong’o says Weinstein escorted her to a taxi. Before leaving, she asked if they were still “good,” to which she says he replied, “I don’t know about your career, but you’ll be fine.” Nyong’o writes “It felt like both a threat and a reassurance at the same time; of what, I couldn’t be sure.”

Nyong’o says they did not see each other again until Sept. 2013 when she was in Toronoto for the premiere of 12 Years a Slave, her first film. “He said he couldn’t believe how fast I had gotten to where I was, and that he had treated me so badly in the past,” she writes. “He was ashamed of his actions and he promised to respect me moving forward. I said thank you and left it at that. But I made a quiet promise to myself to never ever work with Harvey Weinstein.”

After winning her Oscar in 2014, she says she received an offer to play a small role in a Weinstein film. “I turned down the role, but Harvey would not take no for an answer,” she says. They later met in person at Cannes, according to Nyong’o, who says her agent was present at the time. Again, she turned down the role. “He said he was open to making it bigger, more significant, maybe they could add a love scene,” she writes. “He said if I did this one for him, he would do another one for me — basically guaranteeing backing a star-vehicle film for me.”

Finally, Nyong’o says she became so exasperated that she “just kept quiet.” She claims Weinstein eventually accepted her position, saying he hoped they could work together at some point. “’Thank you, I hope so,’ I lied,” she writes.

The actress writes she stayed silent about the encounters because, “I did not know that things could change. I did not know that anybody wanted things to change. So my survival plan was to avoid Harvey and men like him at all costs, and I did not know that I had allies in this.”

Now, she says, “I am most interested in now is combating the shame we go through that keeps us isolated and allows for harm to continue to be done. I wish I had known that there were women in the business I could have talked to. I wish I had known that there were ears to hear me. That justice could be served. There is clearly power in numbers. I thank the women who have spoken up and given me the strength to revisit this unfortunate moment in my past.”

She adds, “Now that we are speaking, let us never shut up about this kind of thing. I speak up to make certain that this is not the kind of misconduct that deserves a second chance. I speak up to contribute to the end of the conspiracy of silence.”

More than 40 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexually inappropriate behavior since a New York Times report first revealed allegations of abuse spanning decades.

Actresses Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, Lysette Anthony and Lucia Evans have all claimed they were forced to perform a sex act by Weinstein. In a subsequent report by the New Yorker, another unnamed woman alleged the producer had raped her. According to the New York Times, Weinstein has reached civil settlements with eight different women relating to inappropriate sexual behavior.

The LAPD announced Thursday that the Robbery Homicide Division has interviewed another potential sexual assault victim, an unnamed Italian actress. New York police have already launched two active sex crime investigation into Weinstein, and London’s Metropolitan police are looking into allegations made by three other women.

Weinstein has since been removed from his company and his wife, Georgina Chapman, has separated from him.

A spokesperson for Weinstein previously said in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

The Daily Buzz for Oct 20 ☕πŸ“°☕


‘The King’ LeBron James Covers GQ Magazine’s 60th Anniversary Issue
Lebron James is gracing GQ magazine’s 60th anniversary issue as “The King.”
The NBA star is beat to the gawds and has a Fenty Beauty glow in his cover shoot – he looks really good.
Inside his cover story, King James talks about why it’s important for him to speak out on social issues.
I don’t do it to get praise or to be in an article. I do it because it’s my responsibility. It’s my responsibility.
Nah, it’s my responsibility. I believe that I was put here for a higher cause. We have people, not only today but over the course of time, that have been in the higher positions that chose to do it and chose not to do it.
LeBron also discusses how he talks to his children about being black in America.
It’s heavy when a situation occurs either with myself or with someone in a different city, i.e., Trayvon, Mike Brown. I have to go home and talk to my 13- and 10-year-old sons, even my 2-year-old daughter, about what it means to grow up being an African-American in America.

Because no matter how great you become in life, no matter how wealthy you become, how people worship you, or what you do, if you are an African-American man or African-American woman, you will always be that.

See more of LeBron’s fancy photos below.
Nice!


#RHoA: Did Porsha Williams Really Shave Her Head, Or is it an Illusion?
The next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta doesn't premiere until Nov. 5, but there's already a major new update from one of the Housewives... or is there? Porsha Williams claimed she shaved her head in a photo and video she posted to Instagram, and the posts do show an entirely different look from what fans are used to. She still looks amazing, but the pictures are not what they seem.

In the two Instagram posts, Williams' showcased her new style. She captioned the snap, "Bald is beautiful...inspo @sanaalathan ... #twocanplayatthatgame...". She also shared a video of her haircut with the caption: "And she gave no fux. Not even one. And she lived happily ever after. THE END❤️ #twocanplaythatgame." Based on the captions it didn't look like Williams shaved her head with a specific cause in mind. Instead, her posts made it seem like it was more of an empowering move for the Housewife. Even with the filters on the pics, she still looks amazing.
But even though Williams is acting like the new look is the real deal, don't expect it to be around for long. The hairstylist the reality star tagged in her Instagram, Kellon Deryck, spoke to BET and revealed that Williams' look is thanks to what is basically a very good bald cap.
 “Surprise! Porsha did not cut her hair off! This is a part of the process to install her fabulous wigs!” he told BET. "This is actually a stocking cap that matches her skin." He continued, "This technique is part of my #flawlessillusion technique to make wigs look like they are growing from the scalp. Her hair is braided underneath the cap that is customized to replicate a natural scalp! It's the best way to make your hair unit completely undetectable."
Deryck also explained that what he and Williams were really doing was prepping for her new role in the play Two Can Play That Game, which explains the hashtag in Williams' captions. "This was prep for the ponytail wig that we installed for her stage play that starts this weekend, Two Can Play That Game," he said. "She is playing Gabrielle Union's role, Connie, and in the movie she had a long ponytail. [All of] this was prep for the ponytail wig that we installed.”

While shaving her head would have been a surprising move, Williams has been known to sport her fair share of stylish looks on RHOA while she's causing drama with her fellow Housewives. In the reunion episodes for Season 9 of RHOA, Williams had a cropped hairstyle, which was bit outside the norm for the Housewife, too. She is usually sporting long locks, like she was only days before she made the change.

I knew it was a cap!


#‘Empire’ Recap: Anika Teams Up With Angelo To Bring More Drama
Anika and Angelo Dubois ruin the Lyon family's fun at Bella's birthday party.

Last nights episode of Empire opens with Cookie having more prison flashbacks. She has been filling Lucious in on her past, hoping to help him get his memory back, and it comes to light that part of the reason he stopped visiting her is because he got freaked out. He tried to make sure the cops took care of her (at this point he was BET-famous), but after seeing her with cuts on her face that she got from a fight, he just decided to abandon ship. Amnesiac Lucious is disturbed by this and promises to make it up to Cookie by being the man that old Lucious never was.

As far as Empire business goes, Lucious comes back to work, which isn’t really a good idea, but he does present a good idea. Basically, there will be a competition to find the new face of Empire Records. Every Empire artist has to compete. The top artists like Jamal, Tiana, etc aren’t happy about this, of course. But Cookie likes the idea, and what boss lady says goes.
The actual auditions are funny because Cookie is brutally honest and Lucious gets on her about hurting people’s feelings.  LUCIOUS CARES ABOUT PEOPLE’S FEELINGS NOW!

It’s Bella’s first birthday, which is also a reminder of the day Rhonda died so that kind of puts a damper on Dre’s spirits (but he still shows up to celebrate). The Lyon Clan is celebrating with a Princess and Prince (that Prince) themed party.

Bella’s party goes well at first, but things take a turn for the worst when Angelo shows up with an envelope that he’s calling “a gift.” Cookie demands to know why he’s even there and Anika claims she invited Angelo, and that one thing she has learned is that the Lyons will destroy everything they put their hands on. So, Angelo’s gift is court papers. He’s acting as Anika’s lawyer and plans to sue the Lyons for sole custody of Bella.

Hold up. Anika? The same chick who killed Andre’s baby and wife?!

GTFOH!

Either Angelo isn’t aware of this, or he has some major chicks up his sleeves because what judge in their right mind would favor Anika over the Lyon’s?
Perhaps Leah was right to send her butt to jail after all.
Smh. It’s probably going to boil down to Thirsty working some of his dirty magic as per the usual.

Let’s meet back here next week! (HB)

#NEWHIPHOPVIDEO: Wu-Tang – ‘If Time Is Money’ & ‘Hood Go Bang’
Fresh off their performance on “The Tonight Show,” Wu-Tang Clan unleashes a double video for “If Time Is Money (Fly Navigation)” and “Hood Go Bang” off The Saga Continues.
While the visual features cameos from the likes of Raekwon and Masta Killah, the clip focuses on Method Man, who walks around New York while rhyming along to the standout tracks.

Rocking a Wu-Tang Clan shirt that reads “Protect Ya Neck,” M-E-T-H-O-D Man kicks off the video with “If Time Is Money.” Then, he breaks into “Hood Go Bang” before returning to the first song for the gritty visual’s finale.
This marks the second video to be released from the album. The first was for Wu-Tang’s Redman-assisted single “People Say.”

Watch the dual visual for “If Time Is Money (Fly Navigation)” and “Hood Go Bang” HERE 


Crafted by Mathematics, The Saga Continues was released last week and features a majority of the Wu-Tang Clan. Meth said he hopes that the album “will bring back that grimy feel that people know Wu-Tang for.”


#RIHANNAMANIA: Rihanna, National Icon of Barbados, Is Getting a Street Named After Her
Rihanna during the finale of Fenty x Puma by Rihanna Spring 2018 in New York, New York, September 2017.

Rihanna is the most visible Barbadian on the planet. In 2008—before Fenty x Puma, before her Stance sock line—she had already been named an honorary ambassador for Youth and Culture by then-Prime Minister David Thompson. This, for context, was circa Good Girl Gone Bad. Next month, she’ll be granted an even bigger honor: On November 30, Barbados’s Independence Day (commemorating their independence from the United Kingdom in 1966), Westbury New Road will be renamed Rihanna Drive in the musician-slash-fashion-and-beauty mogul’s honor.

Rihanna grew up on Westbury, a street in the Barbadian capital of Bridgetown, so it’s a fitting homage to Barbados’s most famous export. (She relocated from Barbados to New York after signing with Def Jam in 2005, though she maintains a $22 million, five-bedroom condo in the luxury complex One Sandy Lane.) Rihanna Drive is certainly an improvement on Westbury New Road, which is a snooze of a name, but it’s not nearly so thrilling as “Shut Up and Drive, Drive, Drive,” a street name proposed by Jezebel, or perhaps Fenty x a Traffic Jam by Rihanna, in honor of the influx of tourism she’s brought to the neighborhood where she grew up.

E! CONFIRMS ‘FASHION POLICE’ TO END .. Nene Leakes, Giuliana Rancic, And More Set To Host “Fashion Police: The Farewell”.
All good things must comes to an end!

The network confirms ‘Fashion Police’ is set to end with a farewell special coming up next month.
According to reports,  “Fashion Police,” the style talk show that long served as a platform for the late comic Joan Rivers’ famous wit and biting commentary, is coming to an end. Cable channel E! will bring the franchise to a close with a series-finale special next month.

“Fashion Police: The Farewell” will debut on E! Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. The special will be hosted by Melissa Rivers and the current panelists, including Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes, and Margaret Cho. It will also feature highlights from Joan Rivers’ run on the show, as well as clips from an unaired episode featuring Joan Rivers and her co-hosts paying tribute to ’80s fashion.

The finale will feature signature segments from the series such as “Bitch Stole My Look,” “Guess Me From Behind,” and “Starlet or Streetwalker,” as well as surprise celebrity guests.
“We’re going to take a look back and celebrate some of the show’s most memorable moments and hosts and gags, said E! president Adam Stotsky. “It’s an opportunity to celebrate the franchise, celebrate Joan and how much we miss her, and pull back the curtain and show fans some things that they haven’t seen.”

The decision to bring the show to an end was made in concert with Melissa Rivers, who executive produces the show with Snegaroff and Lisa Bacon.


Channing Tatum Pulls ‘Forgive Me’ Film Project From The Weinstein Co.
Channing Tatum is dissolving his relationship with the Weinstein Company. Amid the wave of accusations of sexual harassment pinned to Harvey Weinstein and recently his brother and TWC co-founder Bob Weinstein, the actor and producer took to social media to announce that he has pulled his project, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock — a story dealing with the issue of sexual abuse — from TWC and will not work with the company on any future endeavors.

“Our lone project in development with TWC — Matthew Quick’s brilliant book, Forgive Me Leonard Peacock — is a story about a boy whose life was torn asunder by sexual abuse. While we will no longer develop it or anything else that is property of TWC, we are reminded of its powerful message of healing in the wake of tragedy,” Tatum’s statement read.

The film, about a high school student who plans to kill his best friend and then himself, would mark Tatum’s directorial debut alongside Reid Carolin. In addition to co-directing and co-producing via his Free Association banner and along with Peter Kiernan, Tatum would also potentially star.

Since the scandal broke with The New York Times and The New Yorker articles detailing alleged accounts of Weinstein’s sexually depraved behavior, Hollywood has moved swiftly to disassociate with the company, removing the TWC moniker from all of the company’s TV series including Project Runway, Yellowstone with Kevin Costner for Paramount TV and Amazon’s new drama from David O. Russell starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore as well as films like Disney’s Artemis Fowl.
“The truth is out — let’s finish what our incredible colleagues started and eliminate abuse from our creative culture once and for all.”


Man Suspected In Deadly 2-State Shooting Spree Arrested
Authorities have captured a man suspected in a shooting spree that left three people dead and three others critically injured in Maryland and Delaware on Wednesday.

After a day-long manhunt, Radee Prince, 37, was arrested in Newark, Delaware by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and allied law enforcement agencies, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.

The agents found Prince walking near his parked GMC Acadia SUV after receiving a tip from the public, CNN reported. A law enforcement official told the news outlet that Prince was “smoking a cigar” when agents spotted him. He was reportedly arrested “without incident.”
On Wednesday morning, Prince allegedly opened fire at his workplace in Edgewood, Maryland, killing three people and critically wounding two others. All five victims were believed to be employees at Advanced Granite Solutions, a cabinet and countertop company where Prince had worked for four months.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler told reporters that it had been a “regular work day” for Prince. The suspect reportedly fled the scene after the attack.
Two hours later, Prince allegedly shot a sixth person about 50 miles away at a car dealership in Wilmington, Delaware. The victim was critically wounded after being shot in the head but was expected to survive, said Robert Tracy, the city’s police chief.
Prince was thought to have had “beefs” with the victim, Tracy added.
While Prince’s motives are not yet known, Tracy said all of the victims appeared to have been “targeted.” 
“This individual knew the people he wanted to go shoot. This was not a random act of violence.” Tracy said, per the Baltimore Sun.
Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler shared a photograph of the suspect, Radee Prince, during a news conference on Wednesday.
Prince had a history of violence and crime. According to the Sun, he was fired from another job earlier this year after punching a colleague and threatening others. Wilmington Police Chief Bob Tracy told reporters that Prince had “an extensive criminal history in Delaware, having been arrested 42 times in the state and convicted of 15 felonies,” per Buzzfeed.

He also has a criminal record in Maryland, reported NBC News.
The three victims who were killed in the attack have been identified by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office as Bayarsaikhan Tudev, 53; Jose Hidalgo Romero, 34; and Enis Mrvoljak, 48.

Advanced Granite Solutions posted a condolence message on Facebook following the shooting:

The Daily Buzz For Oct 19 ☕πŸ“°☕


Kerry Washington is Gorgeous on Allure Magazine’s November 2017 Issue
Scandal star Kerry Washington is on the cover of Allure Magazine‘s November 2017 Issue.
After five years of being “the fixer” on the Shonda Rhimes-created drama series, Kerry is delving into other projects. She talks politics, beauty, and people expecting her to “fix” things in real life.

On people thinking she’s a fixer in real life: “It happens All. The. Time. I mean, part of it is because they know I can connect them to Judy Smith, [the crisis manager] who the role is based on. But people call me to say, ‘I have this problem. Can I talk to you about it?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t even want to know! Just skip over me!’ But I know secrets.”
On how she handles this political landscape: “I have to dip in and dip out because it suffocates me. Like, I become unable to function. So it’s a tricky balance between staying aware and also staying connected to a sense of hope and productivity and showing up for life.”

On her beauty indulgence: “Massages. I love them because they fall in that in-between for me: half beauty, half wellness. It’s something I do because I’m in heels a lot and I work really long hours.

#RHoA: Kandi Burruss Looks Like An Angel In New Photos From ‘RHOA’ Shoot While Ignoring Nene Leakes Tour Drama
Kandi Burruss is not addressing the madness surrounding her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star, Nene Leakes, and The Great Xscape Tour.
Todd Tucker’s wife shared a few pictures taken on the set of RHOA where she looks like an angel.
The photos were taken as Burruss was filming a scene for the hit Bravo show.
The singer-songwriter had a beautiful curly hairdo, an off-the-shoulder top that showed lots of cleavage, and several pieces of intricate jewelry.

However, what really got her supporters’ attention was her makeup — the diva looked gorgeous thanks to a deep blue glittery eyeliner.
Ace’s mother captioned the photos: “Caught in the act doing my selfie! @sewjodie @erika_lapearl_mua & @hauseofglam had me feeling myself today. ”
There are were many positive comments geared towards the television personality about her look.
A commenter shared with the record producer and businesswoman: “That’s a beautiful pic, looks almost not like you, but it does at the same time.”
Another one said Burruss was a real-life Barbie in the selfies and added: “Looking like a doll!Gorgeous with extra Extra twinkles in your eyes! Love the hair yasssss come on today….Now that’s my favorite look on you @kandi looking like an angel.This is a beautiful picture of you!”
A third person could not help bring up the feud with Leakes by writing: “The first chance you get to cross @neneleakes its a shame that black women cant stick together, we always have to tear each other down smh shame on you @kandi.”
Last week, the R&B group known as Xscape fired Leakes who was supposed to host their tour.
Leakes was axed after she made a controversial rape comment. The source said Leakes is angry with Burruss for not having her back.
A friend claimed: “NeNe is good at dealing it out, but she’s not good at taking it. Right now NeNe feels she’s coming under fire from all angles, and that everyone is ganging up on her. She’s been under immense stress recently, what with Gregg’s health issues, and Kim’s ongoing poison, and she would love to feel like she had at least one person fighting her corner.”
The person added: “NeNe thinks Kandi and Tiny overreacted by firing her, and that they’re just trying to get some publicity at her expense. But that’s the thing with NeNe, she constantly feels that she’s the victim, and she never really takes full responsibility for her actions.”

Burruss seems unbothered by Leakes feeling and anger.

#EMPIRE: Will Anika get Bella Back?
Poor Anika. She may be out of prison, but that does not mean she's getting her hands on Bella just yet. But she did go to Hakeem’s place to see Bella. And finds Tiana holding her daughter. 
Anika is left shocked and confused. You know she’s not going to stand for this! Tiana has never really been given much to do on this show, so if Anika gets Bella back all she will be left to do is participate in random hookups in bathtubs.

#HIPHOPNEWS: Dipset Reuniting For Spotify RapCaviar Live Concert
Cam’ron’s epic response to Jim Jones’ comments on Funkmaster Flex seemed like — for all intents and purposes — the nail in the Dipset reunion coffin. It appears the group’s demise was overstated though.
Spotify has confirmed the iconic Harlem quartet of Cam’Ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones and Freekey Zekey will reunite at the fourth show of the six-city RapCaviar Live tour. The concert goes down at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Tuesday, November 21.

There have been many false starts and promises of a Dipset reunion since Cam and Jones’ relationship began to degrade (at least publicly) over a decade ago. The first plausible sign of a reunion happened back in 2010 when the two squashed the original iteration of their beef. The resulting song, “Salute,” had fans fiending for an inevitable reunion that failed to materialize fully.
The foursome joined Funkmaster Flex in 2015 — again with reunion talks. But, by early 2016, Cam and Jones were back at it and haven’t been in positive place since.
Despite what has appeared to be a bitter back and forth, Cam and Jones have often maintained that they’re brothers and wish each other the best. They’re also both clearly about their business. Whether this reunion is a sign that the water is truly under the bridge or simply a sign that Spotify made them a deal they couldn’t refuse, fans will have the opportunity to relive Dipset mania — if only for one night.

The show will also feature A$AP Mob and a host of special guests. Tickets go on sale this Friday (October 20) at 10 a.m. EST. Grab them here.

Frank Ocean Beats Dad’s $14 Million Lawsuit Libel Suit
Frank Ocean has scored a massive legal victory against his estranged father, Calvin Cooksey. According to court documents obtained by our friends at theJasmineBRAND.com, on Tuesday (October 17th), the Grammy Award-winning artist beat Cooksey’s $14.5 million libel suit. In short, a California federal judge ruled that his father failed to show that his son defamed him with a 2016 Tumblr post that recounted him calling a transgender waitress an anti-gay slur.

U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson said that while the court doesn’t have to rule whether the statement was truthful, Cooksey still had failed to meet necessary elements to make his defamation claim.
Here’s the backstory: Earlier this year, Ocean was sued by his estranged father, Calvin Cooksey, accusing him of ruining his good name. Cooksey explained his son published a Tumblr post following the Orlando nightclub massacre, accusing his father of using a slur towards another person when he was just a kid. Ocean wrote,
I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f****t as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.

Frank’s dad claimed the singer defamed him and ruined his reputation, with people now believing he is a bigot, a claim he denies. He says the story recounted was fabricated. He sued for $14.5 million in damages.

#GOYANKEES! Aaron Judge seals decision, powers Yankees' have tied the series 2-2
NEW YORK -- There were the 52 regular-season home runs. There was the Home Run Derby. And there was possibly an MVP season as a rookie. But if you are going to be the new face of baseball, a potential legend, it really happens in the cool air of October.

For everything the 6-foot-7, nearly 300-pound rookie Aaron Judge has accomplished in 2017, none of his performances were bigger or better than in Game 4 of the ALCS on Tuesday, when he and the New York Yankees took some more punches, absorbing the blows before knocking down their opponent, the Houston Astros. It was Judge who led them as the Yankees tied the ALCS with a come-from-behind 6-4 win over the Astros.
Aaron Judge gives the Yankees' signature "thumbs down" celebration to the dugout after his tying RBI double
Down four runs in the seventh, Judge first hit a solo homer to start things off. In the eighth, with two more runs already in, he smoked the tying double -- just missing another homer -- off Houston closer Ken Giles. Yankee Stadium was rocking like it was 1996.
Judge's fellow Baby Bomber, Gary Sanchez, finished off Giles and the Astros with a go-ahead two-run double. Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman took care of the ninth, and this game was put into Yankees history books right next to all of their best postseason tales.

The American League Championship Series is a totally, spanking new series as it is now deadlocked at two games apiece. The Yankees have guaranteed that they are sending this one back to Houston for, at least, a Game 6 on Friday and possibly a tantalizing Game 7 on Saturday.
On Wednesday afternoon, in what could be the most crucial game of the series, the Yankees will face their nemesis in Dallas Keuchel, and will have Masahiro Tanaka on the mound.
The Yankees' bats could not touch Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr. for six innings in Game 3. After the long break between the top of the seventh inning and the bottom for the Yankee Stadium staple of "God Bless America," Judge sent a mammoth homer over the monuments in center field. That was it for McCullers.

The Bronx crowd, which has been noticeably louder this postseason, was again creating an intimidating atmosphere. With a sellout crowd on its feet, the noise put added weight on the Astros. Their manager, A.J. Hinch, brought in right-hander Chris Devenski. The 26-year-old Devenski, who was an All-Star this season, faced only three batters, and wasn't particularly effective against any of them.

Didi Gregorius smacked a triple and scored after Sanchez lined a sacrifice fly to right, cutting Houston's lead in half.
The Yankees would go on to complete the comeback, once again showing why they are a tough out, especially at home, where they had the American League's best record.
They still have a tough task looming, as Keuchel has posted 13 scoreless innings this postseason. After him, in Houston, the Astros will have Justin Verlander in Game 6.

But this Yankees group is beginning to look like something special. They don't start playing in each series until they are down. In the wild-card game, the Twins held a 3-0 lead before the Yankees came to bat. The Yankees won. Against the Indians, they were in an 0-2 hole in the series. The Yankees won.

Now, they have come back to tie the ALCS at two games apiece. At this point, would anyone dare count out these Yankees?
