Kelly Rowland & Baby Titan looks cute On Parents Magazine Cover
R&B singer Kelly Rowland and her precious baby boy Titan Witherspoon are gracing the cover of Parents magazine’s February 2016 issue. And the mother-son duo is melting our hearts with their insanely cute cover and spread.
In the cover story, the fab mom talks about juggling her career all while being a hands-on mom to her 14-month old son, whom she shares with husband Tim Witherspoon. She reveals "patience and confidence" are the keys that have helped transition her into motherhood.
But, she wasn’t always confident about stepping into motherhood. Like many first-time mothers, she felt super nervous about having enough patience to care for her baby boy.

"I was nervous that I didn't have the patience to be a good mom, because before Titan I had zero. But now I am very patient. The Bible verse 'love is patient' is real! I am much more laid-back now. I don't make the little things into big issues like I once did.”
After giving birth to her first child, we watched Kelly morph back into her pre-baby bod. It didn’t seem like it took her very long to bounce back (she kept up a healthy exercise routine while she was preggo) and she credits that to burning crazy calories in spin classes and working one-on-one with a fitness trainer.
While some new mothers can’t afford a trainer, she offers up some great advice to new moms who are working diligently to drop the baby weight. First she advises,
"Write on your mirror in lipstick: 'I had a baby. I'm a superhero.'"

Then, she urges new mothers to not get discouraged when trying to lose weight. She motivates them to stay the course because losing the weight will take time, but you shouldn’t beat yourself up over it. She drops some inspirational words saying,
"It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don't beat yourself up if it takes even longer."

Good advice!

Gov Paul LePage of Maine widely criticized for racially charged comment at Bridgton meeting!
Maine Gov. Paul LePage made a racist claim about his state's heroin epidemic on Wednesday, alleging men with nicknames like "D-Money" are coming from cities to sell heroin and "impregnate" Maine's white women.
During a town hall meeting in Bridgton, Maine, LePage was asked how he plans to address the state's heroin epidemic. The first step, LePage said, is beefing up enforcement.
"Now the traffickers ... These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty, these types of guys. They come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, and they go back home," LePage said. "Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue that we've got to deal with down the road. We're going to make them very severe penalties."
LePage's office didn't immediately return a request for comment. The governor's office did provide comment to the Portland Press-Herald, which first reported the remarks.
"The governor is not making comments about race. Race is irrelevant,” LePage communications director Peter Steele said. “What is relevant is the cost to state taxpayers for welfare and the emotional costs for these kids who are born as a result of involvement with drug traffickers. His heart goes out to these kids because he had a difficult childhood, too. We need to stop the drug traffickers from coming into our state."

Maine, like many other states, has seen a major spike in heroin treatment and overdoses in recent years. LePage has previously called for greater enforcement against out-of-state dealers, and said last year he would consider using the state's National Guard.
State lawmakers are considering a bill to help ease the crisis that would include money for Drug Enforcement Administration agents and other law enforcement, in addition to funding for treatment programs and facilities. LePage, however, has threatened to veto the bill for what he said was favoritism toward treatment facilities receiving funding.
In August, a drug addiction clinic in Sanford, Maine, closed its doors, blaming LePage's policies.
"In Maine, Governor LePage is discussing calling in the National Guard to combat the state's drug epidemic while leaving multi-million dollar grant opportunities for funding treatment on the table," Charles Faris, the president of Spectrum Health Systems, said.

LePage has made many offensive remarks during his time in office and may soon face impeachment. Democrats in the state legislature plan to move forward with an impeachment motion next week.

#RHOA: The WORLD came to see Kandi & Todd’s new Son Ace Wells Tucker!
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss Tucker and her husband Todd Tucker welcomed their precious baby boy Wednesday. And now we know his name: Ace Wells Tucker!

The 39-year-old singer explained why she chose the name Ace telling E! News, "We named our beautiful baby boy Ace because I wanted something unique. When he becomes school age, hopefully he won't have to worry about another person in the class having his name."
She added, "More than that, Ace represents the number 1 and that of the highest quality and our baby Ace is definitely that! His middle name Wells was Todd's mother's last name. Using her last name as his middle name was our way of honoring her memory."

Aww! What a nice way to remember his mom. And guess what? He already has his own Instagram account. Ha!
As expected, Kandi and Todd’s family and friends are ecstatic that Baby Ace has made his arrival. So, all of Kandi’s friends have been stopping by to get their first look and to meet the little bundle of joy.
Kandi’s former Xscape band mate Tiny, who’s also pregnant, stopped back to check on her friend and new baby. The “RHOA” star said, "I was happy to see my sis @majorgirl today. I'm mad we didn't get to do a pregnancy belly pic together. We should've thought of that before today! Lol!
A few of Kandi’s cast mates also dropped by including newly engaged Demetria McKinney and Phaedra Parks even made an appearance. Nice to see Phaedra stop by to visit her friend even after all of their drama. The R&B singer’s bestie Carmon and her friend Tobey Renee also dropped by.

Former reality star Toya Wright and "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Rasheeda showed love.
Papa Todd got in some bonding time with his baby boy. And have this sweet message: Me and my little man!!! I wish my mom could be here to meet him. She would be so happy and proud of Kandi and I!!! 
God is good!!! All the time!!!

Mama Joyce wasn't far behind. She was all smiles craddling her first grandson.
Baby Ace's big sisters Kaela Tucker and Riley Burruss gazed at their baby brother with excitement.
Kandi's “Kandi Koated Nights” co-host Nikki Nicole stopped by to show love.
And of course, her doctor Jackie Waters, who stars on "Married to Medicine," stopped for a photo-op.
Congrats again to the couple on their new bundle of joy!

Aretha Pays Touching Tribute To Natalie Cole, Brings Crowd To Their Feet
The Queen Aretha Franklin performed at her concert in Connecticut on New Year’s day and she paused from her original set to give one of the most sincerest, beautiful tributes to the late, great Natalie Cole. It was so perfect that it brought the house to it’s feet and had some of the crowd in tears.
It’s been a few days now since we lost Ms. Cole on December 31, 2015, and it’s still very difficult for many of us diehard Natalie Cole fans to digest the fact that the “This Will Be” Queen has made her grand exit from this earth. Natalie has given us so much emotionally through song, that it takes a special singer to be able to give back to her emotionally in the same manner that she gave to all of us while she was here.
natalie smiling2Well as you already know, Aretha can take us to chuuurch no matter where she’s performing and at 73 years young, she did just that for her soul music colleague, Natalie Cole. Watch the video below of Aretha Franklin singing “Inseparable” and let’s all remember and pay homage to the legendary Ms. Cole…

Aretha performed to an overpacked house that was not prepared for the amount of people who showed up to see her do her thing. After a video went viral last week of Aretha singing “You Make Me Feel” honoring the honorees at the Kennedy Center, where she even brought President Obama and Michelle Obama to their feet, the Mohegan Sun’s Arena in Connecticut had to add 300 extra seats at the last minute to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend the concert and get that Aretha feeling that they’d just seen on the video. That is how you reign supreme after 60 years in the music business.

Overall, it was such a beautiful moment to see one legend pay homage to another legend. May Natalie Cole rest easy, she will most definitely be sorely missed.

Janet Jackson CLEARED To Continue “Unbreakable” Tour
Well this will certainly put a smile on some Janet Jackson EUROPEAN Fans’ !
According to EXTRA, doctors have cleared the “No Sleeep” singer to continue her tour in Europe! A few days ago, rumors began circulating online that Janet was suffering from a throat tumor that could possibly end her career causing her to postpone her worldwide tour.
While details of her actual prognosis are unclear, one thing is for sure, Janet will be returning to the stage overseas starting March 30th. She still has to have surgery soon though.
Luckily, she has her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana to help nurse her back to health. She also wants to setting the record straight about her health condition. Wednesday night, the 49-year-old singer released a statement on Instagram, contradicting reports that she had cancer. Her message read:
However for us stateside fans who have tickets to see her in Jan and Feb those shows have been postponed and will be rescheduled.

Prayers up for Janet.

Say What: Rapper Keith Murray Comes Out The Closet?!
For the longest time rapper Keith Murray kept his homosexuality a secret from his fans.
“Keith Murray’s coming out of the closet. I’m gay," said Murray during a call to Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning show on Wednesday.
Murray said he was “happy" to finally reveal his homosexuality to the world.

The Def Squad rapper first acted like he really had something big to get off his chest — bigger than Frank Ocean and Caitlyn Jenner’s whopper. However, after blurting out “I’m gay," Keith than acted like he was just using the moment to plug his upcoming album and mixtape. No, man, no.
Sidenote: he also revealed that he was fresh out rehab and is now seeing a psychiatrist.

As it turns out, Keith was just using Lil B’s patented trolling tactics.

HUH? Golden State Warriors Player Andre Iguodala Is Worried His 6-Year-Old Daughter Will Become a Lesbian If She Plays Basketball
Golden State Warriors star Andre Iguodala does not want his daughter to play basketball because he’s afraid she’ll become a lesbian.
via TMZ: Clayanna Warthen testified Monday in a child support hearing, Andre had issues with 6-year-old daughter London playing basketball at school because he was worried she might “turn into a lesbian.”

TMZ Sports broke the story, Warthen wants Iguodala to pay $58k a month in child support … up from 16k a month. She says her daughter is a genius with a 151 IQ, already reading Harry Potter books.
Warthen grouses her baby daddy isn’t even paying for her full tuition and has shunned her, not even bothering to call on Christmas. Warthen says Iguodala saw London for a grand total of 9 hours in 2015. She says it’s so bad she needs money to cover London’s therapy.

Iguodala’s lawyer fired back, saying Warthen is trying to take his client to the cleaners. The lawyer says Warthen wants money for a personal chef and $7k for floor seats at 76ers games.
Iguodala’s lawyer says Warthen’s requests are “a prescription for spoiled children.”

Not only is Andre’s alleged reasoning ridiculous, Clayanna’s request for $58,000 a month in child support is ALSO ridiculous.

#RHOA: Who is Lying Amiyah Scott or RHOA Producers?
'RHOA' Producers: Amiyah Scott Didn't Quit ... We Didn't Want Her!
Amiyah Scott might be telling people she walked off the set of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," but producers are singing a different tune ... she was just boring as crap so they scrapped her.
Scott -- who would have been the first transgender female cast member -- got a trial run and claims she walked off the set because they were trying to sexually exploit her.

But our production sources say Amiyah never walked off ... she just didn't make the cut because she brought nothing interesting to the table ... being transgender doesn't make you automatically interesting.
As for claims she was forced to wear lingerie ... producers say that's ridiculous. Porsha Williams  -- who has a lingerie line -- thought Amiyah was beautiful and made the offer and Amiyah declined ... simple as that.

It all worked out in the end for Amiyah ... Lee Daniels has just cast her on a new TV show

Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch’s Stepdaughter Detained After Unpaid Uber Fare
Police said Monday that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s stepdaughter was briefly detained at a police station last week, after a quarrel with an Uber taxi driver over an unpaid fare.

Via GigiOnThat; Kia Absalom, 21, was riding in the car on Monday, Dec. 28. She believed her fare was automatically paid through the Uber ride-hailing app, as is the practice with most of the cars available on Uber, police said.
 But the driver was signed up for the UberT service, through which riders can pay with cash or credit cards but not through the app.
“I asked her to pay me,” taxi driver Hassan Almaweri told the Daily News. “She said, `No, I paid by the app.”’
The two quarreled over the fare, and he drove her to a Brooklyn police station.
 After it was determined she owed him about $20, she said she had no cash or credit cards on her, police said. She was detained for about a half-hour in a cell while her boyfriend came to pay the fare, they said.

After she paid, she was released, and police said her arrest number was voided.
She was not fingerprinted or booked, police said.
Messages left with the attorney general’s office and Absalom weren’t immediately returned Monday.San Francisco-based Uber declined to comment.
Police said they were reviewing what happened.

Mathew Knowles' Wages Being Garnished For Child Support
At least one of Mathew Knowles' baby mamas is getting her pay day.
In case you forgot, Mathew Knowles fathered at least two children outside of his marriage with Tina Knowles. While the mother of his son says she's homeless and receiving food stamps to get by, Taqoya Brandscomb, the mother of Knowles' 5 year old daughter, is raking in the dough.

According to Bossip, when Brandscomb told Mathew that she was pregnant, he attempted to pay her $225,000 in hush money. Last month a Houston family court judge ordered to garnish Mathew's wages. Mathew Knowles is now forced to pay his baby mama  $70,822 in back child support plus interest, along with $1,496 a month in regular child support. He must also pay for his daughter's medical insurance, as well as $50,000 for Brandscomb's attorney fees. Smart move by Taqoya for not taking the hush money.

‘Stay Beautiful’
I’m less worried about her ratchet ass and more worried about the people that were around to catch the shrapnel from when the explosion took place.
