#RhoA: Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker’s Baby Ace Wells Tucker Has 2 Product Brands In The Works
I’m not at all shocked that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s son would end up an entrepreneur, I just figured that he would start talking first. We all know that Kandi is an overachiever so it makes sense that her baby is following her path.
Kandi‘s son Ace Wells Tucker already has product line and a shoe line in the works. That’s impressive. Obviously, this kid is way too young to actually make any business or design decisions, but it is cool that his parents are setting him up to be a businessman this early in life. Color me jealous.
This is both brilliant and hilarious. Kandi shared the news of Ace’s foray into business on Instagram, along with a cute promotional pic of the baby.
Kandi wrote, “My baby @acewellstuckerdid so good today at the photo shoot for his baby brands #RaisingAce & #AceWellsShoes. I can’t wait for y’all to see it!” Yes, you read that right. This child has two brands. Damn. Nevertheless, I do find it weird that someone selling shoes doesn’t even have shoes on in the promo photo, but he is an infant, so I’ll cut him some slack on that oversight.
In another #TotalKandiMove, Ace not only has a personal Instagram account, but he also has another page to launch his baby brands.
The first post on the Instagram page for Raising Ace is a cute video of Kandi and baby Ace to celebrate the launch.
Along with the video, Kandi wrote, “I’m excited about the photo shoot we did today for my baby @acewellstucker’s new product line! It’s called #RaisingAce & we also have a shoe line called #AceWellsShoes. Coming Soon!”
Kandi is not nearly as showy as the other Real Housewives, but she really does make a lot of money, unlike a majority of them who are stunting without much to show for it. Kandi knows what she’s doing, and as weird as this whole thing sounds, I’m sure that Ace is going to do very well.
#EMPIRE: More bad news Season 3 Fans! Episode 5 Delayed To Give Way To World Series
“Empire” will be making a rather long hiatus to make way to the broadcasting of the highly celebrated sports event, the World Series.
“Empire” has just kicked off its new season this year and has been received positively by the public. Unfortunately, the drama series will be taking a break of hopefully just two weeks. That means "Empire" Season 3 Episode 5 will be postponed to a new later broadcast date. The reason for the series being halted is because of the upcoming World Series.
For everyone’s information, the World Series is the annual championship series of Major League Baseball (MLB) in North America. It is a well known sports event in North America since it only takes places one a year, drawing thousands of fans to come out of their way to flock and cheer for their respective teams. The World Series will commence with its first game with Cleveland Indians, whose opponent has not yet been determined, on Oct. 26 in Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio.
Meanwhile, the fans of the series “Empire” will either have to sit out the major baseball series event and wait for it to finish or just cheer on the baseball players and enjoy the show while it lasts. "Empire" Season 3 Episode 5 is promised to continue after two weeks, which will be on November. Such schedule shall push through provided that there will be no changes to the World Series schedule as well.
Season 3 Episode 5 titled “One Before Another” has been reportedly moved to broadcast on Nov. 2.
New Music from Ledisi – I Can’t Breathe
Ledisi is the latest artist to show that she is ‘woke’ with her socially conscious single, “I Can’t Breathe.” The solemn ballad showcases the energetic songstresses’ serious side as her robust vocals are accompanied simply by a piano. Ledisi and her production team, Butta-N-Bizkit, direct the focus more on profound lyrics versus souped up instrumentation. The song’s title is a haunting reminder of the last words from NYPD brutality victim, Eric Garner.
Channeling the pain of wounds that seem like they will never heal, she sings, “In a world scared of love / Where freedom isn’t free / I can’t breathe.” Her tone is intense; heavy with the burden of desired change. Her moving portrayal of gospel great, Mahalia Jackson in the film, Selma may have been a precursor to the release of this anthem.
“This song had to be sung. Had to be heard. Thank you to all involved to make it live. Now out into the world it goes. With love, prayers and a passionate plea,” The New Orleans native explains.
Take a breath and listen to “I Can’t Breathe”
New Hip Hop from Jermaine Dupri & Da Brat Feat. Jadakiss – ‘Business As Usual’
It’s “Business as Usual” for Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat. Fresh off “Big Brother x Lil Sister,” the one-two punch returns for a new collaboration. And this time, they bring Jadakiss along for a business trip.
The So So Def duo goes back and forth with a tag-team flow over a trunk-rattling joint. “I’m saucin’ on a beat like sesame,” raps Brat. “And it can’t be stopped,” Dupri adds. “This destiny.”
Following his trademark laugh, J-to-the-Muah comes through with rhymes about his wealth over the bass-heavy banger. “Prior to you hatin’, I was gettin’ richer,” he raps. “You don’t get the frame, you can’t get the picture.”
And JD and Da Brat also show that they’re “with her.” Hillary Clinton is referenced on both the start of the song and on the cover art.
“Business as Usual” is the title track off JD and Da Brat’s joint project, which is due to drop this year. For now, listen to “Business as Usual” HERE
Madea HAUNTED herself all the way to the #1 spot at the box office earning $27,600,000.00!
Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Christmas is crowned champion of the largest three-day weekend the 2016 box office has seen in over two months. Boo!, along with fellow new releases Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Ouija: Origin of Evil and Keeping Up with the Joneses, generated 61.6% of the top twelve's overall gross of nearly $114 million, up 28% from last weekend and up 20% from last year. The weekend also saw a stellar opening for A24's Moonlight in limited release, delivering the largest opening per theater average of the year, and there are plenty of overseas results to discuss.
Topping the weekend box office, Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween brought in a stellar $27.6 million from 2,260 theaters ($12,212 PTA), the largest opening for a Madea branded feature and for a Tyler Perry-directed film overall since 2009's Madea Goes to Jail.
As far as Madea-branded titles are concerned, after a couple of $25 million openings with 2011's Big Happy Family and 2012's Witness Protection, A Madea Christmas saw a bit of a drop as it opened in the holiday corridor in 2013 with $16 million and finished its domestic run just over $52.5 million. Madea's three year absence from theaters must have been just what the character needed as audiences certainly showed up for this one, and with an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences it should hold over quite well with Halloween just a week away. How it plays following the holidays will determine just how much over $50 million it can bank.
If you like him or not….still CONGRATS Tyler!
Meet Denasia Lawrence, the Woman who knelt while singing the National Anthem

A singer knelt while performing the national anthem at a Miami Heat basketball game on Friday and opened her jacket to reveal a shirt that read “Black Lives Matter,” a variation on a protest that has punctuated many U.S. sporting events since the summer.
Like other anthem protests, the gesture by Denasia Lawrence was intended to highlight what activists say is unfair police treatment of minorities. The trend began in August when San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” before a preseason National Football League game.
Lawrence, a social worker, wrote on Facebook that the opportunity at the preseason Heat game “was bigger than me.”
“Right now, we’re seeing a war on Black & Brown bodies - we’re being unjustly killed and overly criminalized,” she continued. “I took the opportunity to sing AND kneel; to show that we belong in this country AND that we have the right to respectfully protest injustices against us. I took the opportunity to sing AND kneel to show that, I too, am America.”
In a statement, the Heat said, “We were unaware of it ahead of time.”
Lawrence was not the first anthem singer to take a knee. Leah Tysse knelt while singing before a preseason Sacramento Kings game two weeks ago.
Kaepernick’s silent protest ignited a fierce national debate over whether refusing to stand during the anthem is disrespectful to the country and its military or a political expression that goes to the heart of the U.S. constitutional guarantee of free speech.
Other players in various sports, both at the professional and amateur levels, have taken up the protest, with some raising their fists in a move that recalls a famous gesture by U.S. track and field athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during a medal ceremony at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.
The Heat players and coaches stood and locked arms during the anthem as they have done throughout the preseason as a show of unity.
“Throughout all of this, I think the most important thing that has come out of this is a very poignant, thoughtful dialogue,” said head coach Erik Spoelstra after his team lost to the Philadelphia 76ers. “We’ve had great dialogue within our walls here, and hopefully this will lead to action.”
FINALLY! Chicago Cubs are geaded to The World Series! The 'curse' ends after 71 years
The Cubs leapt for joy on the field
Chicago has been celebrating after the Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, taking the team into the baseball World Series for the first time since 1945.
They partied outside Wrigley Field stadium after the Curse of the Billy Goat - supposedly placed on the Cubs by a disgruntled fan - was finally lifted.
The team's decades in the wilderness had become the stuff of legend.
In the 1989 film Back to the Future II, a 2015 World Series win for the Chicago team was dubbed a "long shot".
That long shot came one step closer on Saturday when the Cubs beat the Dodgers in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series.
They will now meet the American League champions, the Cleveland Indians, for the first game of the World Series on Tuesday.
Most of the fans celebrated peacefully, with many taking selfies in front of the stadium, but one person was arrested after climbing a traffic pole, and several others were detained after letting off fireworks.
The win is a boost for a city with a more sombre reputation in recent years, overtaking Los Angeles and New York in terms of gang murders.
"My grandpa's been alive for so long, and he's never experienced this," Adam Lewickas, 31, told AFP news agency.
"You've seen tears here tonight," said fellow Chicagoan Anthony Madrano, 43. "You've seen people just so emotional about it."
On social media, people jokingly thanked President Barack Obama, a former Illinois senator who lived and worked in Chicago, for gifting the city a Cubs breakthrough "on his watch".
The Cubs had not won a World Series since 1908 but had some near-misses up until 1945.
In that fateful year, tavern owner William Sianis and his pet goat were turned away from Game 4 of the World Series because other fans had complained about the smell.
Sianis reportedly said: "Never again will a World Series be played in Chicago", and the Cubs duly lost the game and the series to the Detroit Tigers.
As the city celebrated this weekend, Chicago Tribune columnist David Haugh wrote: "The weight is lifted. The wait is over, at last."
Police Reportedly Came to Scottie Pippen's House for 2 Domestic Disturbances in October
As the old saying goes about romantic relationships that hit the skids, breaking up is hard to do. Let alone after being married for damn near 20 years. The divorce case of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa Pippen, whom he married in 1997, was preceded by a rough ride on a rocky road towards the final days of their union.
According to TMZ Sports, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department responded to not one, but two domestic disturbance complaints at the residence of Scottie Pippen, 51, and Larsa Pippen, 42, within two days this month.
The first incident happened Oct. 2, and the cops found Larsa sitting in her car in front of their home. She reportedly revealed to the police officers who arrived on the scene that she and her husband were in a "heated verbal argument," but adamantly denied that the altercation ever became physical. Scottie reportedly told police that she could come back inside their home, and that he would leave their property if that is what it took for her to feel comfortable.
On Oct. 4, the police were reportedly called to their home again to answer another domestic disturbance, but no arrests were made.
The NBA legend officially filed for divorce from Larsa on Oct. 19. The couple has four kids together.
Perhaps the rumor about Larsa and Future being an item didn't help matters in the Pippen household. Larsa Pippen denied any romantic link to the Atlanta rapper.

THE SHADE! Kanye West Doubles Down on his dissing of Jay Z!
Earlier this week Kanye West exposed the rift between himself and Jay Z by explaining how Jay kept him from appearing on Drake's smash hit album 'Views' over a conflict between Tidal and Apple Music.
Kanye doubles down by refusing to perform his Jay Z duet 'Ni**as in Paris' on the Saint Pablo Tour...
The other night Kanye West started the music for 'Ni**as in Paris' but then abruptly stopped the track yelling,"Next!," before moving on to 'Can't Tell Me Nothing' which starts with the words, 'Wait till I get my money right..."
Lady Gaga on Comparisons to Madonna: ‘She’s a Nice Lady...But I Play a Lot of Instruments’ OUCH!
Lady Gaga reads Madonna star for filth. Music and mayhem! In an interview with Beats. Gaga was asked about being compared to Madonna, and simply wasn’t having it:
“Madonna and I are very different, I wouldn’t make that comparison at all. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna. She’s a nice lady and she’s had a fantastic huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time, but I play a lot of instruments...I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer, I’m a writer. What I do is different. I’m not just rehearsing over and over again to put on a show.”
OUCH! But no shade Gaga, Madonna has NOTHING to be bothered by you. No one gave her anything SHE EARNED IT as you’re earning yours!
