Bell, 51, was arrested by an off duty police officer and charged with assault of a female under 12-years-old and two counts of assault on a female.
It’s unclear what prompted the incident, but in the clip circulating online, a group of young black girls are riled up and appear to be arguing with Bell.
Bell is seen standing still in the midst of the madness. Then, out of nowhere, he shoves one of the girls. She falls back and begins to approach him again – that’s when he punched her to the ground.

All of the other girls began to run and scream in total shock.
The Asheville Citizen Times reported that all victims involved in the incident refused medical treatment and they did not want to go to the hospital.
The incident is still under investigation by the police.

I’d really like to know the events that led up to this grown man punching a child in the face.

#RHoA: What’s the Tea here☕? Cynthia and Kandi in danger of losing their Peaches? πŸ‘πŸ˜²πŸ‘


#RHoA: What’s the Tea here? Cynthia and Kandi in danger of losing their Peaches?
As you all know Season eleven of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has been met with low ratings and fans begging to bring certain cast members back. Viewers have also been criticizing Kandi Burruss for her role in attempting to expose Porsha Williams’ new love interest.
In addition to the aforementioned drama, a new report claims that Kandi and Cynthia Bailey are in danger of losing their peaches. Cynthia is allegedly desperate to get engaged to secure a storyline for season 12 while Burruss may get the boot in order to free up funding to bring new faces on to the show.

Burruss’ popularity may be the only thing saving her from being fired, but that doesn’t stop the fans from calling her out for being in Porsha’s business online.
After Kandi brought Williams’ archnemesis Jami on the show to spill tea about Dennis McKinley, viewers took to Kandi’s Instagram page to insult her.

On January 12, Kandi posted a video on her Instagram Story saying that she will be breaking from social media.
“I’m gonna be taking a break from social media for a while. I kinda needed this break I think. Well all of my friends, they’re going to take over my page while I take a break.”
The ‘RHOA’ star finishes the clip by blowing a kiss to her followers.

The revelation immediately sparked rumors that her break is due to the next few episodes where she and Porsha will be arguing about what went down at Todd Tucker’s 45th birthday party.

Why do you think Kandi is taking a back seat to social media? Do you think she will return soon? Do You care?πŸ‘πŸ‘

BREAKING: 'Hello, Dolly's The ICONIC Actress Carol Channing has DIED at age At 97!⚘😒⚘


BREAKING: 'Hello, Dolly's The ICONIC Actress Carol Channing has DIED at age At 97! 
American actress and singer Carol Channing starred in the musical Hello Dolly! in New York City in 1964. The play won 11 Tony Awards in 1964 including best musical and Channing won best actress. She reprised the role several times throughout her long career.
Channing's trademark platinum blond hair framed a face that always seemed to be smiling, her wide-eyed innocent style belied a very savvy mind, and her voice was unmistakable. She died Tuesday morning, her publicist told Broadway World. She was 97 years old.

Born in Seattle in 1921, Channing's parents were Christian Scientists. She recalls that she got her first glimpse of backstage delivering copies of The Christian Science Monitor to theaters.
"Some nights they're hyper, some nights they're slow, some nights they're sleepy, we have to nurse them; we have to find the way in to communicate with them. ... It's an electric thing for the performer; it's like plugging me in the wall."
"It came over me that I was looking at the stage and backstage of a cathedral, a temple, a mosque, a mother church," Channing wrote in her memoir Just Lucky, I Guess. "I know I'm using adult words to describe a child's feelings, but I don't know how else to tell you this simple reaction of a child to a holy place."
Channing's near religious connection to her audience gave her an astounding amount of energy, and she grew irritated with those who tried to diminish the importance of theater in people's lives.

"Live theater is something that can't possibly die because we're working on their metabolism," said Channing. "Some nights they're hyper, some nights they're slow, some nights they're sleepy, we have to nurse them; we have to find the way in to communicate with them and slowly the anodes and cathodes in and it's an electric thing for the performer; it's like plugging me in the wall."
Channing's first great role was also her first big break as Lorelei Lee in the 1949 original Broadway production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. But the role with which Channing will always be identified is Dolly.
It was this role in Hello, Dolly! that Channing loved most because it was life affirming in every sense. She had great respect for the show's creator, Thorton Wilder, and was deeply touched by the character's gradual ascent in this most optimistic of Broadway shows.
"It's easy to slide downhill, but who are the ones that just won't do it? Who are the diamonds in the rough that go upstream against everything?" said Channing. "That's what it was all about, that's what Thornton Wilder kept writing about."

It was the same lesson she shared with the audiences who watched her perform thousands of times in Hello, Dolly!: "Dolly Gallagher Levi stop talking to your dead husband and rejoin the human race!"

Rest In Peace!

Look who is coming to ‘Celebrity Big Brother' Cast it’s Tamar Braxton & Kandi Burruss!


Look who is coming to ‘Celebrity Big Brother' Cast it’s Tamar Braxton & Kandi Burruss!
Also entering the "Big Brother" house are Anthony Scaramucci, Dina Lohan & Ryan Lochte.
The cast of season 2 of CBS' Celebrity Big Brother has been revealed.

Viewers will soon be given 24/7 access to the cast that includes former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, Dina Lohan, Ryan Lochte and Grammy nominee and TV personality Tamar Braxton.
For Scaramucci's part, he is now the second former Donald Trump aide to join the reality series and move from the White House to the Big Brother house. Omarosa Manigault Newman starred on the show's first season, where she made headlines after revealing details about her time in the White House. After her return to reality TV, she went on to write the explosive tell-all Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.

In a promo airing Sunday during playoff football coverage on CBS, Scaramucci was pegged as the show's "big surprise."

This isn't the first time Celebrity Big Brother has reached out to Scaramucci. Last season, Julie Chen Moonves, who will return as host this season, revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, "We formally asked him and he turned it down. But now he will see the attention Omarosa got."

Also joining the Mooch will be actor Joey Lawrence, Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett, Olympic track athlete and bobsledder Lolo Jones, former NFL running back Ricky Williams, former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie, comedian Tom Green, singer and reality star Kandi Burruss and Kato Kaelin (who is being described as "an infamous houseguest" for his notoriety from the O.J. Simpson murder trial).
In the show's promo, Kaelin quips, "Living with celebrities is nothing new to me."
The new season kicks off with a two-night premiere event starting Jan. 21.

The spinoff of the longtime CBS summer flagship will see its famous cast cut off from the outside world as they live together and compete in a slew of competitions and a social game battle for the $250,000 grand prize.

Celebrity Big Brother will air for 13 episodes leading up to its season finale on Feb. 13. The first season crowned Hairspray actress Marissa Jaret Winokur as its winner, edging out runner-up Ross Mathews, who was voted "America's Favorite Houseguest."

In case you were concerned, All 5 Braxton Sisters Are Returning For New Season of ‘Braxton Family Values’!

Last year it was reported, Toni, Towanda, Trina and Tamar Braxton walked off of the Braxton Family Values set mid-scene, leaving Traci Braxton to keep the show afloat.
Traci was joined by Tiffany Pollard, Phaedra Parks, Natalie Nunn and more special guests to help round out the cast so that she could complete the season.

Traci explained in an interview with Build Series. “Well, I decided to stay abroad because I’m under a contract and you can’t do anything when you’re under a contract. Let’s you don’t want a job no more, so you know I stayed on because you know I wanted to fulfill my obligations. And, I have a family I’m not going to just stop… It’s like you have a job you under a contract. You can’t just say I quit. And, think you’re going to get all you know benefits with your leave, hours, and vacation. It’s you’re j.o.b. you got to show up…”

In the new ‘BFV’ promo WEtv has finally hushed concerns by confirming season 7 is forthcoming and all sisters are on board!

Inyanla Vanzant says NO MA'AM she will NOT be fixing R Kelly's Life on her Show! 😲


Inyanla Vanzant says OH NO MA’AM to R Kelly appearing on her Show!
Lawd, She’s not going to do the ‘work’: R. Kelly’s life has been under a microscope since the premiere of the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly. Considering the singer’s own history of abuse and how that could’ve affected his relationships with girls and young women, many wondered if life coach Iyanla Vanzant would be willing to work with the Grammy winner.

The OWN personality recently revealed that Kelly, in fact, reached out to her for help via Iyanla: Fix My Life. She turned him down, however, because she didn’t believe he was truly ready to face his demons.

“He didn’t meet one of the criteria that we had for guests. Are they willing? Are they ready? Do they have the capacity to do the work? He didn’t have it, the emotional capacity,” said Vanzant, “He just didn’t have it, and I knew, based on what I was looking at—the paces I would have had to take him tho—it would have been brutal. He didn’t have the capacity because he hasn’t done the work.”

Vanzant also believes locking up the “I Wish” singer wouldn’t solve the underlying problem.

“I would never, ever condone or justify anything that he’s been accused of doing. But locking him up in jail is not the answer … he’s sick … Just like the people he allegedly committed these acts with—they’re sick. This needs to be massive healing—them, him all of them.”

She went on, “But I do know, without some long-term intervention, he doesn’t have the capacity. Just wouldn’t be able to hear it, receive it. Classic thing is that he’s not telling the truth about it.”

Should Inyanla just have him on her show, or NAH?

#Empire: With viewership slightly down last Season, How confident are we in the series’ future? πŸ˜©πŸ˜”


#Empire: With viewership slightly down last Season, How confident are we in the series’ future?
Empire season 4 episode 3We’re back with another edition of our ongoing CarterMatt Ratings Watch article series, and the focus on this one is on Empire that has certainly had quite a run for a while now.

Is the Taraji P. Henson show anywhere near as successful as it once was? Not in terms of live viewership. Season 5 so far is averaging in total a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is down about 16% versus the fourth season’s average. The show has shown some steep decline in the past few years, so we cannot quite say that anything that we’re seeing here is all that much of a surprise. This is a show that got off to such a hot start that it was going to be impossible for them to be able to carry that through for most of the remainder of the series.

With that being said, though, let’s not get things twisted: Empire is still one of the biggest shows that Fox has and it does perform better than a number of other series out there. It’s routinely in contention to be Wednesday’s #1 show and it has made stars out of most of its cast members. Even with it just settling in at its current ratings, it has a lot to brag about. It’s with this in mind that we can say that its future is going to be dictated so much more by what the cast and crew wants than the ratings right now. So long as the show stays above a 1.0, we think that it is going to have a right to dictate its own future. That’s why a season 6 renewal is almost a lock, and why, so long as the cast and crew want to do it, there’s a good chance at a season 7.

The only thing that may hold the show back once you get to a season 6 or a season 7 is the idea of getting many cast members into new contracts — which is customary around that time. Everyone’s going to deserve more if they want to continue in the long-term, but that’s not something to worry about right now. The only thing that could slow Empire down is if the cast members want to move on, but there’s a way for the show to balance that out adequately — why not just give the show a shorter run in the future? That could allow them to continue to be a part of this family and spread their wings.

For now, just continue to enjoy the ride — there’s no reason to doubt the future, and we think that Empire will still be golden for many more years.
