NBA Baller Russell Westbrook Just Got MARRIED To Bride Nina Earl!
OKC Thunder star Russell Westbrook is a beast on the court....but he's a ball of Tom Ford Tux-wearing mush when it comes to his brand new Vera Wang-wearing bride Nina Earl.  And they've got the pics from their Mindy Weiss-planned nuptials to prove it:
Saturday in Beverly Hills, Russell married his college sweetheart after they met almost a decade ago when both played NCAA basketball at UCLA.

While Nina walked down the aisle in a Vera Wang creation, she slipped into a second dress by Monique Lhullier.  As for the music she walked down the aisle to: A special song by Beyoncé.

At the reception, they had their first dance to the sensual "Nothing Even Matters" by D'Angelo and Lauryn Hill while Miguel did a surprise performance right before midnight.

Pics with their friends from the wedding day and rehearsal dinner:
Singer/songwriter Keri Hilson and her OKC Thunder baller boo Serge Ibaka came out to celebrate their friends' union. Keri shared a sweet message on Instagram saying, "Congrats @ninamari3_ & @russwest44!!! This is our best wishes to you both!!! I'm so grateful for your friendship, & proud to say I have witnessed a union so solid & pure that I can wholeheartedly say will last forever!!! Love you both!!"

#TEAMRHoA! Kim Fields Hit With $212,000 Tax Lien is she buried in Debt?
It’s hard out here in these Hollywood financial streets. Just ask 46-year-old actress, Kim Fields, who is also the newest cast member of BRAVO’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.
According to Radar Online, the reality star (who most of were introduced to on shows like the Facts of Life and Single Ladies), is having some financial challenges. Reportedly, she owes more than $212,000 in federal taxes.
The site reports:According to a federal tax lien issued on October 2, 2014, the married mother of two failed to pay the IRS for three full years: 2011, 2012, and 2013.
She skipped payments of $33,28.98, $42,318.40 and $136,873.64, bringing her grand total to $212,421.02.
After starring roles on two major sitcoms, Fields’ career has slumped in recent times. According to IMDB, she’s had only one acting project in the last three years: 2014 TV Movie For Better or for Worse.

Fields has yet to comment.

A man who previously served prison time in South Carolina for not disclosing he’s HIV positive is accused of the same thing in Georgia, police said Wednesday.

Jason Alexander Young, 34, of Cedartown was charged with 7 counts of reckless conduct by an HIV-infected person, according to Lt. Glenn Daniel with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Young was being held without bond Wednesday night at the Douglas County jail.
Investigators believe there could be more victims.

“He has approached his victims through various social media outlets, and we want to see if there are any other victims out there,” Daniel told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Young previously served 16 months in prison for a conviction for exposing others to HIV, according to the South Carolina Department of Corrections. He was released in March 2013, records showed. In October 2011, Young pleaded guilty two counts of intentional exposure to HIV as part of a plea deal in Aiken County, S.C., according to media reports.

Any woman in the metro Atlanta area who has been involved with Young is asked to contact Investigator Trent Wilson at 770-920-4907 or by email at twilson@sheriff.douglas.ga.us.

THE TEA: CONGRATS Ne-Yo and Crystal Renay are MARRIED and she’s PREGNANT but his fans THROWS SHADE and HE RESPONDS!!
Sorry, ladies — one of R&B’s most eligible bachelors has officially been taken.
Ne-Yo caught everyone by surprise when he announced that he and his fiancée, Crystal Renay, not only tied the knot, but they are expecting a baby as well.
The image Renay is holding in Ne-Yo’s Instagram post is subtle, but a source confirms that the two are married and that the Instagram model is pregnant…
The 35-year-old singer has two children — 4-year-old daughter Madilyn Grace Smith and 3-year-old son Mason Evan Smith — with his ex-fiancée, actress Monyetta Shaw, who currently stars on VH1’s Atlanta Exes.
Shaw has been very open about her relationship with Ne-Yo, who she started dating in 2009 and broke up with in 2013, two years after their initial engagement. She said that she got her tubes burned because they didn’t want any more children, but they are no longer together, meaning she can’t start a family with someone new if she chooses.

Ne-Yo has defended himself on Instagram, saying, “I’ve made my apologies to the people I feel I wronged. I was forgiven by those people. Anybody else passing judgment on me for my past mistakes and immaturities is more than welcome to it.”
Ne-yo and Renay began dating in early 2014. This will be the couple’s first child.
BUT WAIT There are some fans of Ne-Yo that are not too happy about this and took to social media to hurl insults! After one too many nasty comments Ne-Yo had enough… In his own comment section under the post Ne-Yo sets his followers straight.

Will Smith’s “Concussion” Debuts Poster And Trailer!
As pro football season prepares to kick off (pun intended), Sony Pictures just unveiled the new trailer for “Concussion,” slated to hit theaters on December 25th.

The much-anticipated movie features big names like Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Stephen Moyer, Luke Wilson, Albert Brooks and Paul Reiser, all under the direction of Peter Landesman, who also penned the script.

Per the synopsis, “This is a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu's emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful institutions in the world.”

Today You Wouldn’t Recognize the Little Boy from ‘Katrina’ (Hint: He’s a Girl!)
*You may not immediately remember the face of this cute little boy, who looked directly into the NBC-TV camera and spoke so eloquently about his surroundings at the New Orleans Superdome during one of the most devastating events his hometown, New Orleans, had seen.
Well, you certainly wouldn’t recognize Charles Evans today.
A lot can happen in 10 years. He’s taller, of course. And he has outgrown that cute little face and the big eyes. The hair is now long, and has exchanged the trousers once worn… for a skirt.

Yes. The former has begun the process to becoming a Transwoman thank you very much.
As the ten year anniversary of Katrina unfolds, we not only get to take a look back at a devastating time; but we also get to hear how the thousands of New Orleans residents affected by Katrina have moved forward from the event.

The family had been one of the hundreds of families that took shelter inside the Superdome at the time of the raging floods, along with his great-grandmother, Ophelia.
News crews caught up with those held up in Superdome in the aftermath of Katrina, and how could we forget Charles now Arianna, who looked right into the camera and spoke with more passion than anyone older than her, and with the articulation of a future newscaster; exclaiming, “We just need some help out here! It is just so pitiful!”

Now all grown up at the age of 19, she now goes by the name Arianna Evans; after she started taking female hormones this May.
She has also gone through training and is now a certified nursing assistant.
As for the transition, he told NBC News she started thinking about it in high school. But she admits his transition into a transwoman has anything but easy.

“There are folks who are against it and attack our kind,” she said.
“Wanda Felton, the investment banker that supported young Charles and his great grandmother emotionally and financially after Katrina, continues to offer support to him and says, “I think it was always apparent. I was never uncomfortable with it — it was just who she was.”

Celebrity Look Alike Atlanta Man Wanted For Attempted Child Abduction Looks Just Like T.I.
An Atlanta neighborhood has been on high alert after an attempted child abduction over the weekend. According to reports by police, a 10 year-old girl was dropped off at a bus stop and proceeded to walk home. As she walked a male driver in a vehicle approached her. He demanded that she get into his truck, and when she refused he began yelling and the young girl ran to her home.

Police have described the man as: “a black male, 20-30 years of age, and has a gold front tooth. driving a blue extended cab pickup truck during this incident.” Atlanta police released a sketch of the suspect and he seems to have a striking resemblance to rapper T.I. who is also from at Atlanta.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ racks 3rd week atop box office!
Though it was a close call, Straight Outta Compton managed to prevail over the surprise sleeper hit War Room to remain atop the weekend box office for a third consecutive week.
With over $134 million earned at the domestic box office, Compton has officially netted a profit of over $100 million as the film’s budget was only $28 million. With numbers like that, you can rest assured Hollywood will be looking to bank on the profitability of the film via sequels, spin-offs, or other hip-hop themed productions sooner than you think.
In somewhat of a slow week at the box office, Compton managed to maintain the number one position with an additional $13.2 million collected. Despite early projections calling it the winner, family marriage drama War Room came in at number two with an even $11 million. Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation fell to number three this week drawing in $8.2 million. Owen Wilson’s action flick No Escape bowed at the number four spot with a modest $8.2 million. And rounding out the top five is the horror film Sinister 2, which brought in an estimated $4.6 million.

Also of note this week, making a surprise re-entry into the week’s top ten is Jurassic World, whose $3.12 million was good enough to land it at number nine. And much to the surprise of industry experts, Zac Efron’s We Are Your Friends opened to a dismal $1.8 million.

For the full weekend top 10, check out the list below:

1. Straight Outta Compton – $13.2 M
2. War Room – $11M
3. Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation – $8.3M
4. No Escape– $8.2M
5. Sinister 2  – $4.6M
6. The Man From U.N.C.L.E.– $4.4M

Young Dro Arrested for Stealing Stripper's Car
Atlanta rapper Young Dro arrested in a bizarre case involving a stripper, a stolen gun, a bag of weed and a missing Caddilac…
According to reports Young Dro was arrested over the weekend after borrowing a Caddilac from a local stripper and not picking her up from work as promised.
Apparently after Dro failed to show up following her shift the stripper contacted OnStar and located her missing Caddilac in a random parking lot.

By the time she got there police were already on the scene investigating the car because someone had been driving it recklessly.
Turns out there was a stolen gun along with bag of weed in plain view so police arrested the stripper and took her into custody.
The stripper later filed a stolen car report and that's how Dro got arrested.

Dro was booked on charges of theft by conversion of leased or rented personal property.

What is going on here? You look like a teenage girl on a beach vacation that somehow turned into the owner of the store where she bought all that nostalgic vacation garbage that falls apart after 4 days.


LaG H.S Alum and Broadway Actor Kyle Jean-Baptiste, Actor Dies at 21!

LaGuardia Alum and Broadway Sensation Kyle Jean-Baptiste, Actor in ‘Les Misérables,’ Dies at 21
Kyle Jean-Baptiste, the first African-American actor to play the lead role of Jean Valjean in the popular Broadway musical “Les Misérables,” died on Friday after falling from a fire escape in Brooklyn. He was 21.
The police said that Mr. Jean-Baptiste fell from the fourth-floor fire escape of an apartment in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, and that his death “appeared to be accidental.”
Mr. Jean-Baptiste was an ensemble performer and an understudy for the role of Valjean, said Marc Thibodeau, a spokesman for the production. In addition to being the first African-American actor to play the role, he was the youngest.

Mr. Jean-Baptiste was sitting on the fire escape with a 23-year-old female friend, the police said, when he stood up, slipped and fell backward to the street below.

The Tony Award winners Audra McDonald and Kristin Chenoweth sent Twitter messages offering their condolences to Mr. Jean-Baptiste’s family and the musical’s cast. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer and star of the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” wrote on Twitter: “Unimaginable. In shock. He was just in here.”
Mr. Miranda also shared a link to a YouTube video of him and Mr. Jean-Baptiste performing a number from “Les Misérables” two weeks ago on the sidewalk in front of the Richard Rodgers Theater on 46th Street, where “Hamilton” is currently playing.

 “The tragic loss of Kyle to our company, just as he was on the threshold of a brilliant career, is a numbing reminder of how precious life is,” Cameron Mackintosh, the producer of “Les Misérables,” said in a statement.
Ramin Karimloo, who plays Valjean in the current production, described Mr. Jean-Baptiste as a charismatic and talented performer with “a zest for life and the industry.” “He had a lot of ambition and the confidence to achieve those ambitions,” Mr. Karimloo said. “When I heard him sing, his voice was ridiculous for a guy his age.”

Mr. Jean-Baptiste was born in New York City on Dec. 3, 1993, and graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School in Manhattan and Baldwin Wallace University in Ohio. He apeared in several regional theater productions in Cleveland and played Enjolras last year in a production of “Les Misérables” at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival.
He joined the company of “Les Misérables” on June 23 and played smaller roles before first appearing on July 23 as Valjean, the musical’s protagonist, a poor man who is arrested for stealing a loaf of bread and pursued for years by a relentless police inspector. The day after his first performance in the role, Mr. Jean-Baptiste wrote on Twitter that it had been “one of the best nights of my life.”
The current production of “Les Misérables” is the show’s second Broadway revival. The original production, which opened in 1987 and closed in 2003, won eight Tony Awards, including best musical. The show was revived in 2006 and again in 2014. A movie version, with Hugh Jackman as Valjean, was released in 2012 and won three Oscars.

Mr. Jean-Baptiste appeared as Valjean several times before his final performance on Thursday evening, Mr. Thibodeau said. He was scheduled to leave the show on Sept. 6 to join the new Broadway production of “The Color Purple.”

In a message posted to Twitter on Tuesday morning, Mr. Jean-Baptiste wrote:
“Thursday is my last Valjean on Broadway. The ability to play this part on Broadway has been life changing.”

We send condolences to his Family and Friends and also to his greater Alumnus at Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and The Arts!

Kim Kardashian Slams Fat Shamers In C Magazine Cover Story

She’s excited to be pregnant with her second child, though Kim Kardashian told C magazine that the process of conception “took the fun out of” trying to get knocked up.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star explained, “It was over a year of trying and I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accrete. There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again.”

Kim also addressed the way the public shamed her for her weight gain when she was preggers with daughter North West- “I am lucky that, as of right now, I don’t feel like I’m gonna get preeclampsia again, which last time [contributed to] not only the weight, but also the swelling that everyone would make fun of, not understanding that I had this condition. It was the worst! I couldn’t help it, and everyone would say, ‘She can’t stop eating.’ I delivered at 180, and they were like, ‘She’s 210 pounds. She’s getting dumped because she’s too fat,’ and all these ridiculous stories.”

Do you Like or NAH? NeNe Leakes' New Long Blonde Tresses!

NeNe Leakes headed to Craig's in L.A. for dinner.  When the upcoming "To Tell The Truth" variety show judge tip-toed out the restaurant in her Louboutins and Balmain jacket, she showed off her brand new 'do.  And it's one we rarely see her rocking.  Peep the long, flowing wiggery:

The former "RHOA" star is spending time on both the west coast and in the Atlanta area in her brand new multi million dollar home.  Speaking of "RHOA," NeNe's former "RHOA" co-star and frenemy, Kim Zolciak, has not ruled out filming their spinoff road-trip reality show together that has been put on hold. Kim revealed recently on "WWHL":

“It has to do with scheduling. She’s got her stuff going on. I’ve got ‘Don’t Be Tardy’, then Kroy is in football. It’s a lot. It’s a lot for me to leave for that period of time.”

She says they haven't completely ruled out the possibility of going forward with the show. Anyway as for the new hair. Is it a HIT or a MISS?

Oh? So FINALLY Mia Isabella Confirms Relationship with Tyga!
Transgender porn actress Mia Isbella confirms once and for all that she and Tyga were a thing… 

Mia explains in a video posted on Youtube, that has now unfortunately made private!
“Did I have a relationship with this person is what everyone wants to know. Yes we were friends for many years but that’s all I’m going to say unless I’m put in a position where I have no choice but to present the facts. I don’t feel that it’s anyone’s business what two individuals have done behind closed doors and the trust that comes from their connection. I don’t think that it’s fair for someone to try to demand that those details be shared with the public…”

Well Tyga…..it’s now definitely YOUR MOVE!

Cyrus' fashion certainly caught the attention of viewers, too. The former Disney Channel star, known for her outlandish and at times revealing fashion choices, made several wardrobe changes throughout the night. 

The most tense moment of the VMAs came when Minaj called out Cyrus for recently taking aim at the "Anaconda" singer in the press. 

When accepting her award for best hip hop video, Minaj turned to Cyrus and said, "Back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what's good?"

The night ended with a surprise performance by Cyrus herself.

Legendary Horror Director Wes Craven Dead At 76

The "Scream" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" auteur redefined the slasher genre.
Wes Craven, the director of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream," died Sunday at 76. The celebrated horror master battled brain cancer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Craven is one of the past few decades' most recognizable filmmakers, having transformed the slasher movie with the aforementioned box-office triumphs, both of which spawned numerous sequels. "Scream," in particular, is credited with reinvigorating the teen horror film thanks to a tongue-in-cheek script that both parodied and praised the genre. 

But long before "Scream" became one of 1996's highest-grossing releases, Craven cemented his status as the influential writer and director of exploitation films like "The Last House on the Left" (1972), "The Hills Have Eyes" (1977) "Swamp Thing" (1982) and "The People Under the Stairs" (1991). He broke from his signature genre with the 1999 drama "Music of the Heart," for which Meryl Streep earned an Oscar nomination, and one of the shorts within the acclaimed 2006 anthology film "Paris, je t'aime." He returned to form with the thriller "Red Eye" (2005), the supernatural box-office dud "My Soul To Take" (2010) and the long-anticipated fourth installment in the "Scream" franchise (2011). At the time of his death, the Craven-produced MTV series based on "Scream" was days away from airing its Season 1 finale.

Craven was born in 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio, and raised in a strict Baptist family. He earned a Master's degree in philosophy and writing from Johns Hopkins University. He taught college briefly before abandoning academia for the world of cinema, rapidly establishing himself as an auteur who imbued his chilling films with questions about the nature of everyday existence. But Craven said in a 2009 interview that his horror legacy was pure "coincidence," as his debut film, "The Last House on the Left," came about after he and producer Sean S. Cunningham were approached by financiers to make a scary drive-in feature. That launching pad allowed the remainder of his career to channel a singular vision that can be defined by Skeet Ulrich's quote in "Scream": "Movies don't create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative."

The news of the director's death broke during the MTV Video Music Awards. And many were on Twitter sending their tributes and condolences! R.I.P Wes!

It’s also no secret that the 26-year-old has had a rough ten years in his personal life. From jail time, to rehab, to on-again off-again relationships between Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, Brown has endured quite a bit in his 20’s, but we can’t deny that the pop star is incredibly talented and well deserving of these accolades.

Rihanna comes and celebrates her Stylist’s NYC Nuptials!
When it comes to showing support for her friends' most important milestones, Rihanna is one to make it her business to be there. The Bajan beauty hopped on a flight from L.A. to Manhattan just in time to celebrate with her stylist Sonya Benson on her wedding day in Midtown Saturday evening.
The Pop princess got all glammed up in a floor-length silver kimono patterned with orange lotus flowers that she styled with a pair of metallic Tom Ford ankle lock sandals. She ditched the cropped blue wig she was spotted rocking earlier in the day, going back to her golden blonde curly tresses she has been rocking lately pulled up into a high ponytail.

During the wedding festivities, the “BBHMM” singer, who’s first album Music of the Sun celebrates its 10th anniversary today, hopped on the mic to gift the newlyweds, along with party guests, with a live performance during the reception at the American Whiskey Bar.
Let's hope "BBHMM" wasn't one of the selections….LOL!

Looks like a crocodile saw you wearing those shoes, got pissed off and attacked you from behind.
