Jennifer Lopez Covers InStyle’s February 2016 Issue!
Jennifer Lopez is kicking off 2016 with a hot new cover. The 46-year-old stunna is gracing the cover of InStyle magazine’s February 2016 issue looking her usual gorgeous self in an Acne Studios sweater and Calvin Klein skirt.
Inside, the super busy mom-of-two chops it up about what life is like juggling her many hats. She has some big ticket projects coming down the pipeline, including the premiere of her new crime drama series “Shades of Blue” (Jan. 7th), judging a new season of “American Idol” and gearing up for her Las Vegas residency. Yes, chick is booked.
With everything JLo has going on, she said her twins Max and Emme are her main focus and she claims she still currently single. Lately, she’s been spotted with her ex-Casper Smart on plenty of occasions, but she said right now, she’s working on being happy by herself first. She spilled, “I need to be happy on my own. If someone fits into that, great. But if they don’t, that’s OK too.” Well good for her.
The “Booty” singer also talked about the hell she went through during her epic AMA hosting gig. Chick changed a total 10 times, but her body took a beating because of it. She said, “I had scratched and bruises everywhere from trying on so much stuff.”
JLo’s issue hits newsstands January 8th.

Nene Leakes RHOA 9 Return and wants to Adds Co Executive Producer Credit?
If Nene Leakes returns for RHOA 9, could Leakes be adding RHOA Co-Executive Producer credit to her resume? Leakes’ return to Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 is just a few episodes away. But BravoTV already hopes to have Leakes back as a series regular for season nine. However, could Leakes be returning to RHOA 9 with a production credit of co-executive producer, or creative consultant?
Details about Nene Leakes’ exit from RHOA 8 still remain in dispute. According to the people at LALATE.com that starting in season six Leakes gave production hints that she could depart the franchise. Then, midway through season seven, cast members were still uncertain if Leakes would return or exit the franchise. When Leakes first announced her departure officially, however, she was clear that she would never return to the franchise. Weeks passed and BravoTV still kept on the front burner a Leakes-Zolciak spinoff TV project. That spin-off eventually fell out of development.
So why did NeNe leave RHOA 8? One of the reasons was clearly scheduling. Leakes at the time was filming To Tell the Truth, a syndication game show without a full season commitment. In part, it would have been problematic for Leakes to be under contract for RHOA and then suddenly receive a call that the game show had been picked up for a full season to be filmed in Los Angeles. Second, Leakes was eyeing a national comedy tour for fall 2015 called “So N-sty So Rude’ the Tour, if consummated, would bring Leakes’ her biggest paycheck to date. However, that project did not come through.
But will NeNe return full time next season? That remains to be seen. But Leakes has made clear that she was unhappy with the entire Dr Jeff surprise in the RHOA 7 Reunion. As a cast member, you prepare for what your co-stars could bring to a reunion. But the adding of a random variable like Dr Jeff was nothing that anyone could prepare for last season.
Leakes, however, has been the leader of Housewives contract negotiations. In recent years, several franchise leads have given BravoTV exceptionally tough negotiation demands only to be shot down. But Leakes has been one of the few success stories. And while Leakes would never be in charge of hirings and firings, her input in keeping the show the funniest, and most unpredictable, in the franchise is valued by the network. For now, the network understands that season eight has had far too many fights, not enough positive depiction of women enterprises, and a general lacking of major storylines.

Stays in trouble! Chris Brown Accused Of Punching Woman In Vegas Hotel Room!
A woman claims Chris Brown punched her for taking a photo of him during a party at his Vegas hotel suite. Las Vegas police are investigating Chris Brown for potentially assaulting a woman during a private party held in his suite at the Palms Hotel early Saturday morning. The victim in question, Liziane Gutierrez, told TMZ that Brown punched her in one eye after she took a picture of the singer on her cellphone.
After Brown allegedly punched her, Gutierrez claims she left the hotel and called the police a few hours later to report the assault. She was not taken to the hospital.
The incident is currently under investigation, and police say Brown is being treated as a suspect. You can see a photo Gutierrez shared of her "alleged injury"
Not only has Chris Brown responded to the allegations against him, it has also been revealed that the accuser, Liziane Gutierrez, has been involved in past drama with another male R&B singer, namely Jason Derulo. This past August, TMZ shared a video of Gutierrez complaining to the paparazzi after she wasn't let in Derulo's car outside of a Vegas club.
As for Brown, he recently shared his own video response, during which he says, "I don't know this old looking bitch. This bitch is old, like dusty. Look at her in the Jason Derulo video...she probably came to my room and was too ugly to get in."
A rep for Chris Brown has told TMZ that the accusations against the singer are "undeniably untrue."

OOOPS! Delonte West Takes Shots At LeBron James On Instagram, Issues Threat
Things took a strange turn for Lebron James and Delonte West’s much-talked-about relationship on Friday (Jan. 1) when the former Cavaliers player took to Instagram to issue a threat to James. Warning the two-time NBA champion to “take my name out ur mouth,” West wrote that “it’s all fun and games until somebody gets hurt.”
Taking things a step further, West reposted a meme in which he is referred to as James’ “dad,” reigniting rumors about an alleged tryst between West and James’ mother:
The Instagram spree comes after West reportedly sung James praises in an interview with the Northwest Ohio Media Group. Crediting his former Cleveland teammate with saving his life from severe depression, West expressed gratefulness for James support during his final 2009-10 season.
“He sat with me in the locker room for like an hour and was rapping it up with me by giving me words of encouragement,” West said. “Keep in mind, practice was still going on. He left practice and sat with me for a while, just keeping me company. He later walked me down the stairs and said, ‘D, I don’t know where you’re going or what you’re about to do, but I’ll be right here when you get back.’
“My spirits were so high at that point. I don’t know what would have happened had I left in the condition I was in prior. It’s a testament to the type of person he is.”
James has yet to respond to West

Philadelphia’s Mummers Parade MARRED with Homophobic Acts and ATTACKS!
A group of parade marchers in Philadelphia drew the ire of LGBT groups and the mayor with a comedy skit that mocked Caitlyn Jenner.
The Mummers Parade, held each New Year's Day and said to be the oldest folk festival in the country, has tried in recent years to be more diverse, but a musical 'act' put on by a group called Finnegan New Year's Brigade Comic Club was criticized as hurtful and bigoted.
The act featured a man dressed as Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner in front of the famous Wheaties box with Bruce on the front.
The man throws an invisible discus and then is surrounded by children in dresses holding USA signs.
They circle the man as he struts and dances to Diana Ross's 'I'm Coming Out.'
Soon Aerosmith's 'Dude Looks Like a Lady' blasts out of the speakers, and the man reemerges, this time in a white corset and shorts, with a blowup of Caitlyn Jenner in a similar outfit behind him on the cover of Vanity Fair.
People in the crowd wave signs with Bruce Jenner on a Wheaties box on one side, and on the other side, Caitlyn Jenner on a Fruit Loops box.
WARNING EXPLICIT LANGUAGE #MummersParade #Philadelphia homophobia on video: pic.twitter.com/mIxqeUYr2S— Nick Kurczewski (@NKcars) January 1, 2016
Incoming mayor Jim Kenney did not seem to find the act amusing.
'It was bad,' he wrote on Twitter. 'Hurtful to many Philadelphians. Our Trans citizens do not deserve this type of satire/insult.'
'It's unacceptable. There's no place for it in Philadelphia,' Nellie Fitzpatrick, the city's Director of LGBT Affairs, told NBC Philadephia.
Other groups caught some flack as well for insensitive acts, including Sammar Strutters' 'Siesta Fiesta' act, which had comics donning brown face and dressed in sombreros and ponchos. Some performers wore taco costumes.
And then there were the Mummers carrying signs reading Mummers Lives Matter and Wenches Lives Matter -- a play on the Black Lives Matter movement protesting police brutality and inequality.
Responding to critical tweets, Finnegan NYB wrote 'OMG STOP EVERYONE! Happy New Year 2016!! #Sensitive'
