The Daily Buzz For Jan 21

“Hit The Floor" Star Rob Riley Gives you BODY for KONTROL HOMME Magazine,
Rob Riley stars on the hit VH1 scripted series "Hit The Floor," which premiered the third season Monday night. And now, he’s heating up the magazine circuit with a new cover.
The actor is gracing the cover of KONTROL HOMME magazine’s Winter 2016 issue. And he sets the record straight about a few rumors circulating the Internet about him.

Apparently, there was a rumor that the reason season 3 took so long to premiere was because Rob and his co-star Logan Browning secretly had a love child. News to us. He quickly denounced it as FALSE saying:
“No I don’t have any children and she [Logan] and I definitely don’t have any…They may be referring to a plot in this upcoming season…a woman accuses Terrence of being the father of her child, and you know Jelena ain’t having that! [He laughs]”
There you have it.  It's not real life people!
Word on the curb is that he and his (sexy) co-star McKinley Freeman were at odds. In fact, rumor has it, that the two got into a physical altercation. Rob says…that’s not true!
“He [McKinley Freeman] and I are brothers, said Rob. “They’re absolutely off on that one…”

Lastly, there is another rumor going around that Rob would be starring in a major role as supervillain Tombstone in Marvel Comics’ new Netflix original series Luke Cage.
“I haven’t heard anything about that, but if there’s any truth to it I’m all for it,” Rob said excitedly. “I’d definitely like to work with Marvel, they’re doing some really amazing things over there…”
While he may not be starring in the new Marvel Comics series, he does have a number of films coming down the pipeline this year. Not only that, he is also working on a show for the Travel Channel that will specialize in carnivals around the world. He has a company (Holyood Massive) that literally helps throw carnivals everywhere in the world.  And if you follow Rob on Instagram, you KNOW he’s LOVES carnivals.
“Most people don’t know it but I love carnivals!,” Rob said. “I’m a really silly guy who likes to have fun and they are just my speed.”

Nice. Check out his full interview here.
Be sure to check out Rob and the entire “Hit The Floor” cast every Monday at 10/9c on VH1.

#RHOA: Cynthia Bailey Talks About Former BFF NeNe Leakes Playfully Giving Her Hard Time On Show
Well it’s bottle popping time!  The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey and the show’s alum, NeNe Leakes have mended their broken friendship and are now in a better place, or so it seems.  On Sunday night’s RHOA episode, the show’s former “IT” diva, NeNe, appeared on Cynthia’s doorstep in her usual grand fashion and overdone from head-to-toe.
When Ms. Leakes, along with her shiny long blond tresses, skin-fitting designer duds and husband Greg Leakes in tow, rang Cynthia and Peter Thomas’s doorbell, she then greeted them boisterously.   During NeNe’s catty commentary for the segment, she proclaims with a beaming oversized toothy grin, “Yes bitches, I am back!”  She then gives RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss a dig, then announces to all of her haters, “Pick your faces up off the floor, she’s back,” followed by a quick fingersnap.

The foursome seem genuinely comfy with one another, until Cynthia brings up co-star Kenya Moore’s name into the conversation.   Kenya and NeNe were not the best of friends, the mix was downright oil and vinegar.  Even though Kenya tried on several occasions to extend an olive branch to NeNe, the attempt was an exercise in futility.  Cynthia did not mince words when she informed her former BFF, “Kenya is my girl.  Me and Kenya are in a good place.”  During Cynthia’s spiel, NeNe maintains a duck’s pout with lips extended out as far as they can go, while pooh-poohing her every word about Kenya with a nasty glance.  Meanwhile, Cynthia does try to soften what she had just said about Kenya, after seeing her friend’s displeased expression by stating,  “But nothing can ever compare to the friendship of Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes.”  During NeNe’s solo commentary, she expresses how there is no one, who could fill her friendship shoes with Cynthia.  Cynthia then remarks, how she does not remember why she and NeNe fell out in the first place but then jokingly adds, how she is still in therapy after the relationship dissolved.

Hmmm…truth in jest? Meanwhile, in Cynthia’s Bravo blog she states, how NeNe’s response to her being friends with Kenya was just a playful one.  “I don’t think NeNe was upset about this. I feel she was playfully giving me a hard time about my relationship with Kenya as friends do with one another. NeNe and I have not been friends for a couple of years, and I feel we are both reclaiming our place in each other’s lives. These are two different women and two different relationships. I respect them accordingly. They are both dear to my heart and mean the world to me. My goal is to be the greatest friend I can be to both of them. Keep the three of us in prayer.”

Do You Think Nene Leakes Is Jealous Of Cynthia And Kenya’s Friendship?

"A forensic examination of computers and external hard drives removed from the location revealed digital files of children who are less than sixteen years of age engaged in child pornography," Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said in a statement last July.
Jason Alexander faces up to 7 years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing in early May. Alexander is known for his work on The Blacklist, The Tomorrow People, Raising Hope, Lipstick Jungle, Royal Pains, Rescue Me, Burn Noticeand Lizzie McGuire, and of course 32 episodes of Law & Order.

UGH, YOU AGAIN! Stacey Dash Thinks Black History Month Is Pointless, Hates BET
Stacey Dash is back on her soap box spewing nonsense for the purpose of sound bites, and slander. Dash appeared on Fox News Channels Fox & Friends to talk about the Oscars diversity controversy, which opened the door for more pointless banter on all things related to Black people.
In a nutshell, Dash said Black actors have to earn Oscar nods just like their white counterparts, and she didn’t agree with Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee’s boycott idea. She also hates the BET and Black History Month because they’re a form of “segregation.”

“I think it’s ludicrous because we have to make up our minds,” said Dash.“Either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you are only awarded if you are Black.”
She didn’t stop there, Dash called for an end to Black History Month altogether. “There shouldn’t be a Black History Month. We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.” 

WOMP! ‘FABLife’ Talk Show Officially Canceled
It’s over! Just a few months after Tyra Banks threw up the deuces, ‘FABLife’ has officially been cancelled. The news was announced late Tuesday by Disney-ABC, according to Variety.
Original episodes will continue to be produced and air for the remainder of the current season, but the show will not return for season two. Janice Marinelli, president, Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution stated,
"We’re extremely proud of everyone involved with the show and would like to thank them for all of their contributions and tireless efforts. We are especially appreciative of our talented and dynamic co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk, and we would also like to extend a huge thanks to our station partners for all of their support."

Earlier this month, there were reports that the network had been testing replacements (Christina Milian, KeKe Palmer, Sherri Shepherd, Naomi Campbell, etc.). Anywho, the co-hosts have yet to comment publicly

Mo’Nique: Will & Jada’s Open Marriage Ignored Because They’re Pretty
*Mo’Nique spoke yet again about the criticism of her open marriage to Sidney Hicks – this time, during a stand-up appearance that was filmed by an audience member and plastered onto YouTube.

The comedian says she asked Sidney for the marriage arrangement because she wanted to keep dating another man.
“Initially, when I asked for it, it was because I wanted to continue to see the gentlemen that I was seeing, and I felt comfortable telling my best friend [Hicks] that…and I didn’t want it to be where I was keeping anything from my best friend,” she explained. “That’s how it initially started, and when I tell you the conversations that we’ve had, it has taken me to a different place where I’m not even thinking of another man sexually, but still open to it.”
Mo’Nique went on to say that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s alleged open marriage gets a pass from everyone because they are good looking, whereas she is looked upon with pity.
“‘Oh, we hope Mo’Nique not gon’ let him just use her like that,’” she recalled people saying behind her back. “Because society looks at me and they see a woman that looks like [she] couldn’t possibly have a man that looks like that if there was not something else involved in it…No one knew that it wasn’t Sidney’s idea to have an open marriage. It was mine.”

SHE’S BACK! Tyler Perry Shooting ‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ Movie
Tyler Perry Studios has started production on “Boo! A Madea Halloween” with Lionsgate releasing the comedy on  Oct. 21.
Tyler Perry will write, produce, direct and star. Ozzie Areu and Will Areu will also be producers on the film.
The film originated from Perry and Chris Rock including a fictitious Madea Halloween movie in Rock’s 2014 film “Top Five.” Lionsgate then approached Perry and suggested that they make the movie.
“Boo! A Madea Halloween” will see Madea spending Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

The film will also star Bella Thorne, Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Andre Hall, Yousef Erakat, Lexy Panterra, Diamond White, Liza Koshy, Brock O’Hurn, Jimmy Tatro, JC Caylen, Kian Lawley and Mike Tornabene.

Lionsgate has released eight Madea films dating back to 2005’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” based on Perry’s play. The studio had a first-look deal with Perry that was not renewed last year.

“We are thrilled to reunite with the iconic Tyler Perry, one of the greatest creative forces in entertainment and a beloved and cherished member of our Lionsgate family,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. “‘Boo! A Madea Halloween’ brings together two great Lionsgate traditions — Madea and a Halloween movie — and we know that audiences will find the combination outrageous, hilarious and unbeatable.”

Production is under way in Atlanta, home to Tyler Perry Studios.

Fans can expect for Rowland to keep the sound of her new project, based in R&B.

Nike Drips Everything In Gold For Super Bowl 50
Nike Unveils Full Black History Month Line For 2016Nike Unveils Full Black History Month Line For 2016
Nike says: all gold everything for Super Bowl 50. Nike is taking full advantage of their new NFL partnership, and they strategic started the partnership right before a huge landmark game for the NFL. This season marks the 50th Super Bowl for the National Football League, and the Swoosh is using the "golden anniversary" as an occasion to do everything in gold. With Super Bowl 50 right around the corner, the time is ripe (golden, you might say) to release the full info on the collection.

The best sneaker from the collection is an all gold joint with a foil-like aesthetic and matching gold laces. Nike has chosen to apply this treatment to the Air Trainer 1 silhouette on a simple white/black midsole and outsole. The pairing works well, assuming you’re not the subtle type with your footwear.
The rest of the collection features a Nike Ultra XT, and two sneakers for the ladies – a Nike Air Max 1 PRM and a Nike Air Huarache. Aside from footwear, there’s also a Destroyer jacket with premium leather sleeves and a tech fleece jersey for both the men and the ladies. All the items are done up predominantly in black with gold accents throughout.

It probably won't be too difficult to get your hands on a pair of these, so will anyone be seeking these out?

‘Me Want’
Looks like they already hit the cookie aisle. Ah nom nom nom nom nom!
