HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM THE CHRONICLES!!!
#RHoA: Sheree Whitfield throws a housewarming for 'Chateau Sheree'
The house had become a punchline for viewers and even some of her fellow castmembers, but returning Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield, 46, proved the naysayers wrong Friday night when she threw open the doors to her new home.
The on-off, prolonged construction of the custom-built home, dubbed Chateau Sheree, has dragged on for more than five years but has finally been completed.
And the masquerade bash unfolded as cameras rolled - and Kim Zolciak Biermann returned to the show.
Whitfield, former NFL star Bob Whitfield ex-wife and the mother of their three children, returned to Housewives last year after leaving the show in 2012.
There to celebrate her big night was costar Kandi Burruss, former castmember Kim Zolciak Biermann and husband Kroy, and Peter Bailey, the estranged husband of castmate Cynthia.
Kim and Kroy were photographed talking to production crew and pausing to have their entrance to the home videotaped - perhaps signalling a suprise return to the series that made her famous.
Also spotted at the soiree was costar Kenya Moore, who mocked Whitfield's home and last season bet Sheree her own 'Moore Manor', a once foreclosed home she bought that she was re-doing down the street, would be be done first.
Seeming to miss the party were former castmember Nene Leakes and current castmembers Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams.

After not airing for two weeks, fans of "Empire" Season 3 will have to wait a little longer as the show's next episode is said to premiere next month, November 2, because of the MLB World Series.
"Empire" Season 3, Episode 4 was last aired on October 12, wherein Andre (Trai Byers) and Lucious (Terrence Howard) wanted to sign Nessa (Sierra McClain) to Empire records. However, Shyne (Xzibit) had a different plan as he called other musical label managers for a bidding war.

Moreover, it is said to feature a threesome bed scene with Andre and Nessa having sex. However, in Andre's mind, he is also making love with his dead wife Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday).
A promo video for episode 5 teased a new segment where in Shyne is getting ready for a big revenge and then later went to Andre's apartment bringing with him his gun.
In addition, a new "Empire" song entitled "Starlight" will be featured on the upcoming episode.
The song takes "that sweet, intoxicating, overwhelming feeling of a young love in a song," Serayah said as reported by Cosmopolitan. "It just takes you right back to that place when you had your first love, or crush, when it was pure infatuation."
On the other hand, it has been reported that Season 3, Episode 6 synopsis is also out in which there would be a big revelation of information as Empire that directs to conflict between artists and Lyon family. Andre then tries to twist the situation to his advantage while Lucious tries to be in clash with Cookie and Angelo. Amal will be in a love triangle.

Over hard-hitting production, Jizzle rhymes about his appreciation for Lil Boosie and for a special “pretty” woman.

Box Office News: ‘Madea’ Is Extinguishing Tom Hanks’ ‘Inferno’ – Sunday AM Update
Say what you will about Halloween impacting the box office, but history has shown that there’s typically a movie that benefits from the holiday, and this weekend that title is Lionsgate’s Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. The old lady is giving the distributor its first No. 1 second weekend hold of the year with an estimated $16.67M, sending Sony’s Dan Brown threequel Inferno into second place with a revised opening of $15M, but some rivals believe the Tom Hanks movie could dwindle down to $14M. As we mentioned previously, overseas has been a boom for Inferno with global at $150M, but stateside this $75M production was a complete bust.
Despite Inferno getting scorched, overall weekend ticket sales at $87M were +16% from last year. Still it’s the lowest-grossing weekend to date this year, following Sept. 16-18 when Blair Witch, Bridget Jones’s Baby and Snowden crashed. 2016 total domestic B.O. is at $9.2B, pacing 3.4% ahead of the same Jan. 1-Oct. 30 period last year.
Boo! saw an estimated $7.8M on Saturday, a 70% spike over yesterday while Inferno was up 2% from its Friday ticket sales of $5.5M. We detailed what went wrong with Inferno stateside in our previous post; essentially peg it to a once controversial, riveting property by author Dan Brown gone formula, and critics smelled blood from the onset giving the Ron Howard-directed movie a 20% Rotten Tomatoes score. Sony had their concerns about the seven-year lag between Angels & Demons and Inferno onscreen; that time could potentially be against them with this adult-skewing series. But the Brown movies have been very rich for the Culver City lot reaping $1.2B, and if there’s was money to be made, it was certainly overseas. So, instead of making a movie with the $150M cost of Angels & Demons, Sony slashed the budget on Inferno by 50%.
Even though CinemaScore showed the same number of under 25 folk (37%) for Boo! as Perry’s previous A Madea Christmas, sources have remarked how this latest comedy appealed to a younger crowd. ComScore’s PostTrak showed an under 25 set of 43% this weekend. In addition, Boo is playing to a more general audience. Typically, Perry’s movies count an African American audience share between 80%-90%, but Boo! pulled in 50% of the demo in its first weekend, and 38% this weekend. Boo‘s second weekend is currently looking to be -41%, which is a record sophomore hold for a Madea movie. Typically Madea pics decline between -58% and -61% in their second weekend. By Sunday, Boo‘s 1o-day cume should be near $52.1M, just $400K shy of overtaking the domestic run of A Madea Christmas ($52.5M). All of this spells great news for Lionsgate which has seen way too many mega-misfires this year including Gods of Egypt, Allegiant and Blair Witch.

Philadelphia 76’ers Apologize To Sevyn Streeter For Canceling Her National Anthem Performance Over ‘We Matter’ Jersey
The Philadelphia 76ers have issued an apology to Sevyn Streeter after refusing to let her perform the national anthem, due to her “We Matter” jersey.
According to NBA.com, the Sixers “have admitted they dropped the ball and are anxious to correct their mistake.”
Their statement, issued on Friday, said:
We are sorry that this happened. After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcomed to sing. We apologize to her, and in an effort to move the conversation forward, we have reached out to offer her an opportunity to return and perform at a game of her choice. We are waiting to hear back.
Sevyn spoke with the AP following the cancellation of her performance to express her disappointment over the NBA team’s decision, and also posted to social media.
“I was angry, extremely, extremely angry, and disappointed and honestly brought to tears by all of it. It broke my heart,” she said. “Honestly, I was very excited about being able to perform the national anthem. I was really looking forward to that.”
She also said she felt it was important to express the ongoing challenges and injustice that the black community faces within the U.S. “Yes, we live in the greatest country in the world, but there are issues that we cannot ignore,” she explained. “This can’t be ignored.”

Charlize Theron on her 30-pound weight gain: ‘Yes, I am very fat right now’
Here are some photos from last night’s 2016 amfAR’s Inspiration Gala in LA. Charlize Theron was being honored for her Africa Outreach Project, which works on HIV/AIDS issues specifically in southern Africa. While Charlize’s foundation is a great thing and props to her humanitarian spirit, let’s be superficial a little bit? Because as it turns out, she’s not just wearing a “fat suit” for her new movie, Tully. We had photos from the Tully shoot last month, and many wondered if Charlize was just wearing really realistic body padding or if she had actually gained a significant amount of weight for the role. She actually gained the weight!
Charlize Theron wasn’t wearing one of her usual body hugging dresses at last night’s amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles. Instead, the Oscar-winner opted for a loose fitting lacey gown with a black jacket.
“Yes, I am very fat right now,” Theron said after Chelsea Handler cracked a joke about her weight gain. Theron actually packed on about 30 pounds for her role in the upcoming comedy Tully as a mom whose brother hires her a nanny just after she gives birth to her third child.
[From E! News]
By the way, even though Charlize did gain a noticeable amount of weight, she is no way “fat” or “very fat.” Gaining 30 pounds with her tall, lanky frame probably means that she’s still within a normal-size range for her height. I’m also sort of amazed that Charlize barely gained any weight on her face! How does that happen? When I gain or lose weight, you can see it on face immediately, although to be fair, I gain weight all over when I do gain weight. Charlize seems to have localized her weight gain to her abdomen (although I do see a hint at the start of a double-chin with the photo of Charlize’s profile, which I find charming).
