The Daily Buzz For Dec 31

Benedict Cumberbatch Covers Entertainment Weekly’s “Doctor Strange” First Look Issue
It seems he can do no wrong these days, and Benedict Cumberbatch is smoldering on the First Look cover of Entertainment Weekly.
The “Sherlock” stud looks convincing in his “Doctor Strange” getup ahead of the much-anticipated Marvel film’s November 4th, 2016 theatrical release date.
Benedict explains, “I’m still in the infancy of learning all that… It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”

#RHOA Cynthia Bailey Insists Peter Thomas Is Very Romantic; Weighs In On Demetria And Kandi’s Music Video
Cynthia Bailey shared her thoughts on this week’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta with Bravo, and when she did, she went on and on about how romantic Peter Thomas is. Yeah, OK. Cynthia‘s body language in the photo above just screams, I love my super romantic husband, doesn’t it?
“Peter is very romantic and always goes out of his way to make our special moments together memorable,” gushed Cynthia. “I especially loved our “lunch in the park” date because although it was well thought out, it was really sweet and simple. As a matter of fact (after being married for five years), this was one of my favorite dates. Spending quality time together does not always require all the bells and whistles. Sometimes less is so much more.”
When asked if she was hesitant to bring Peter to Kandi Burruss and Demetria McKinney‘s video release party, Cynthia said, “I am never nervous to bring Peter around the ladies, and I was excited to support Kandi and Demetria’s event with my husband on my arm. Peter and I had a great time with everyone. It was a fun date night.”

Huh. If Peter were my husband (not that I’d ever put up with his nonsense), I’d be nervous to bring him around the ladies… All. The. Ladies.
Cynthia said she loved the video and the “catchy” song. “Both of the ladies did an awesome job,” added Cynthia. “Demetria is a smart, beautiful, and talented 
She is a triple threat and a “no brainer” for Kandi to collaborate with. I can understand why Kandi was reluctant to mix business with pleasure due to past unfavorable experiences. I think this dynamic duo is a win-win, and I wish them success.”


She's got a hot career, hot body, and apparently a hot new man.  What we wouldn't give to be Taraji P. Henson right now!
The "Empire" star, who often claims to be unlucky in love, may have found what she's looking for.  Even if it is just a temporary snack.
Rocking an Emilio Pucci bikini and shorts and Chanel beach bag, the 45-year-old Emmy & Oscar nominated actresshappily held hands with a shirtless new boo.  We've learned exactly who he is -- 32-year-old NFL baller Kelvin Haydon!
Kelvin is currently a free agent and previously played for the Colts, the Falcons and the Bears.  Speaking of the Bears, he's a Chicago native, which has us wondering if the two met in the Chi....where Taraji films "Empire" most of the year.

She looks fabulous, happy and ready to take over 2016.

Bill Cosby Arraigned For Alleged Aggravated Indecent Assault! Released on $1 Million Bond!
Bill Cosby arrived in court Wednesday after he was charged with alleged aggravated indecent assault earlier this morning by the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office in Pennsylvania.

After court, Cosby headed to the Cheltenham Police Department, where his mugshot was taken and he was processed.
The comedian, 78, entered the courtroom in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, around 2:30 p.m., walking arm-in-arm with his legal team. He will next appear in court on Jan. 14 and his bail was set at $1 million.
Cosby's passport was also turned over to the court and he did not enter a plea.

Attorneys for Cosby said in a statement that the charge by the DA's office "came as no surprise."

The charge "filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county's DA during which this case was made the focal point," the statement said. "Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law."
The famed comedian has always maintained his innocence since being accused more than 10 years ago by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand of sexual assault. With that case about to reach the statute of limitations next month, First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele said his office had decided to proceed with the second-degree felony charge.

"We examined all the evidence and we made this determination because it was the right thing to do," he said during a press conference this morning.
In 2005, Constand claimed that after she and Cosby became friends, he invited her to his home in Pennsylvania, where he made multiple sexual advances over time. She claimed that on one occasion in early 2004 he gave her pills and wine, which made her unresponsive and unable to move. At that point, Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted Constand.

Constand and Cosby eventually settled out of court for an undisclosed amount, but the district attorney in Montgomery County at the time decided not to press criminal charges.
Steele said earlier today that authorities decided to pursue charges after new information came to light this July. U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno unsealed Cosby's deposition regarding the decade-old case this summer, in which he admitted to giving Quaaludes to a woman with whom he wanted to have sex, according to the deposition.
Cosby has been accused by dozens of women of sexual misconduct, with many of them coming forward in the past year. The former TV star fired back last month against seven of his accusers, filing a defamation counter-suit in U.S. District Court.

If convicted, Cosby faces up to ten years in jail and a $25,000 fine.

NY Knicks player shot and robbed of jewelry and gold teeth
New York Knicks player Cleanthony Early was robbed at gunpoint after a visit to popular Queens, NY strip club Cityscapes. According to police, Early was leaving the club with a female friend when the Uber car he was riding in was surrounded by at least three cars. At least 4-6 individuals then assaulted Early and stole his jewelry, cash and gold caps from his teeth. After robbing the NBA star, the assailants then shot Early in his knee.

Early was rushed to a hospital for surgery and is in stable condition. The New York Knicks organization has not released a statement yet on the incident or whether the injury to his knee will end his career as a basketball player. This is the second time in a week a Knicks player has been the target of a robbery. Last week, his teammate Derrick Williams was robbed of $750K in jewelry at his apartment by two unidentified men. Early was drafted by the Knicks in 2014 and has played 10 games this season. His most recent game resulted in a 108-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The Uber driver and Early’s female companion were not hurt during the robbery. Police are stating at this time it does not appear that Early was targeted for the attack.

New  Music Video: Fabolous – ‘She Wildin” (Ft. Chris Brown)
It’s a house party.. literally, in the video for Fabolous‘ Chris Brown-assisted single, “She Wildin.” The Gerard Victor-directed clip recreates a dance scene for ’90s movie House Party.

Along with partygoers taking their turns down the Soul Train line, Fab and Chris also bust out the Kid ‘n Play. “She Wildin'” appears on Fabolous’ The Young OG Project 2 – initially due on Christmas Day, but it has been pushed back.

In addition to waiting on sample clearances, “The Young OG Project 2 is inspired by 90’s R&B. & wit that said 90s R&B was based on stories of LOVE,” Fabolous explains.”And a holiday that represents LOVE is coming soon. Less than a month & a half for those who act like I’m pushing back far from now. But this also allows time for 1. & 2. & still connecting to a Holiday.”

And now…….The DEFLATION of K Michelle
Last month singer K. Michelle admitted that her large and surgically enhanced butt was getting in the way of her career. As a result of constantly being typecast during movie auditions, she decided to gradually reduce the size of her bottom and get back to her old self. Recently K. Michelle posted a photo of her smaller derriere on Instagram.

Freddie Gibbs Addresses Black Lives Matter, Gun Violence
Freddie Gibbs offers his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement and gun violence.
Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs was questioned about the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent acts of police brutality and gun violence.

In regards to police brutality, Gibbs shared his belief that the interaction between police officers and the people, needs to be worked on. He also revealed that he’s pro-guns, but feels that the screening process to buy a gun needs improvements.

“It’s so many separate incidents with black people and minorities getting killed by police and hate crimes and things of that nature,” Freddie Gibbs said. “It’s kinda hard to put your finger on it, man. I’m a believer in I think you gotta have a gun. I own guns, legally. So, it’s just like I feel like I gotta protect my household. I think that was something that was instilled in me from my granddaddy. Now do I believe there’s people out there that shouldn’t have guns? Of course. I think that it should be more of a screening process maybe to obtain a weapon…I think that we gotta learn how to interact with these people and these people gotta learn how to interact with us better. That’s the main thing…I think the police gotta learn how to better interact with the community and vice versa.”

Gibbs revealed why he believes it’s better to be an underdog with a cult following than an artist who may be hot for the moment.

“I’m all about doing things to make myself the underdog,” he said. “The cult following type of artist. Cause I feel like a lot of those artists they become legendary in your eyes. They last a little bit longer than just some guy that got a single on the radio or some guy that doesn’t know how to make his career stretch. I remember back in the day when I would hear a Rap-A-Lot tape or something like that. It wasn’t something that I could—what was readily available to me via TV screens or BET screens. Sometimes, not in the record stores I couldn’t find it. But the rarity of it is what made me—what attached me to it. And I kinda just want to keep giving my fans that kind of feel. I don’t got to be the top guy in rap to survive in the rap game.

Well alright then.

I’ve heard of a potty mouth and a shit head, but I’ve not actually seen them literally in function.
