The Daily Buzz For April 10

JoJo Poses ‘FAULT’ Magazine
JoJo is currently on the road with her 69-date Mad Love Tour, but the 26-year-old took some time to speak with Fault magazine about her comeback and pose for some sexy pics. The “No Apologies” singer serves look after look (she put a corset over a baby blue hoodie and still managed to look good) and smizes like a scheming contestant on America’s Next Top Model. You can click through the sizzling snaps up top! In the accompanying interview, JoJo talks about being a vegan, a feminist and recording her long-delayed third LP.

“I recorded so many incarnations of the third album, and I had so many people telling me who I should be and what direction I should take, putting a lot of information out there that I attached onto,” she says of Mad Love. “I feel like I was able to get my footing a bit more. Of course, there’s a big difference between when you’re recording an album at 14 versus 24. I had a lot of life experience, and I think my perspective changed. I just had more fun too! It was more pleasant.” Read the full interview here.

#RHoA: Kim Zolciak-Biermann Dishes on Her Highly-Anticipated Return
After years of fan pleas and rumors of Bravo's begging, it's finally happening: Kim Zolciak-Biermann is making her triumphant return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
The OG Georgia peach, who left the series midway through filming the fifth season and is currently filming the sixth season of her spin-off Don't Be Tardy, pops up in the upcoming season nine finale as a guest at fellow OG Sheree Whitfield's long-awaited Chateau Sheree housewarming party. As if no time had passed at all, she immediately finds herself in a sparring match with Kenya Moore. And as she told E! News, she wasn't expecting it at all.

"Of course I'm going to support Sheree. She's always been extremely supportive of me and everything I have going on, so I was super excited to go and see her house finally. I didn't even really think about—it didn't really cross my mind what I would be stepping in to, to be honest," she admitted. "But I definitely didn't think I'd be duking it out with whatever her name is, Kenya. I call her Kendra all the time. Whatever the f--k her name is. Miss Negative Nancy over there."

Despite the drama with Kenya—and despite her admission that her friendship with Sheree is the only relationship she's nurtured since leaving the show—Kim told us she enjoyed her brief return to the RHOA world. "It was great to see everybody else, honestly. Cynthia [Bailey], she's so beautiful. It was great to see her, and of course Sheree and Kandi [Burruss.] Porsha [Williams,] Porsha's hilarious. So f--king funny. So it was great. I definitely didn't expect to duke it out with whatever her name is."
When asked about fellow RHOA vet NeNe Leakes' recent claim that Bravo was making moves to get one of the two of them back on the show, Kim was firm that it never happened. "Honestly, I was not asked to come back. I didn't even know that Sheree's housewarming party was going to be filmed, it didn't even cross my mind. Listen, I'm in season six of Don't Be Tardy. I'm super happy, I get paid to film with my family. It doesn't really get much better than that. But I'm very motivated by money, also. I'd be dumb to tell you opposite," she admitted, before reiterating that there was no offer to consider. "Bravo never asked me to come back on Housewives this season. That never happened. It just happened to be Sheree's housewarming party. And Sheree's actually a friend of mine, so I went."
And if you're wondering what her relationship with Ms. Leakes is like these days, Kim offered this update: "We'll text here and there, to be honest with you, but I haven't seen her in forever. It seems like forever. But we definitely text 'Happy birthday' or what have you. So there's no drama. We just are super busy, both of us."

As for the big Chateau Sheree reveal, and the season finale itself, these are the three words that Kim felt best teased what we're in store for: "Grand, for sure. Exciting. Glamorous. Mmhmm, glamorous." We'd expect nothing less.

Are you looking forward to Kim returning to RHOA?

#EMPIRE: Granny’s GOT A GUN!!!
On Empire, Anika was in more hot water with the Lyons since Tariq had subpoenaed her to testify against Cookie in a court of law with the hopes of finally bringing the empire down. After being on the run, Anika returned to Luscious’s house, only to find her daughter, Bella, missing and Luscious and Cookie circling her as if she were an injured gazelle.

Though Anika told Cookie that she hadn’t snitched on her, Luscious wondered why they shouldn’t just kill her right then and there. Anika pleaded her case, quickly telling them that her plan was to seduce Tariq while wearing a wire. They could use that against him so the case would be dropped for good. But Grandma Leah didn’t seem too convinced when she emerged from the shadows wielding Cookie’s gun. Fortunately for Anika, Grandma didn’t pull the trigger, and the Lyons gave her the chance to begin her deceitful seduction of Tariq.

Empire airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.

Vin Diesel Says Rumors of Dwayne Johnson Feud Blown Out of Proportion
Vin Diesel is speaking out about rumors that he was feuding with Dwayne Johnson.
Last summer, Dwayne penned a lengthy post on Instagram accusing a The Fate of the Furious co-star of being “chicken shit” and a “candy ass.”

Vin is now clearing up the rumors, explaining the situation was blown out of proportion.
“I don’t think the world really realizes how close we are, in a weird way. I think some things may be blown out of proportion. I don’t think that was his intention. I know he appreciates how much I work this franchise. In my house, he’s Uncle Dwayne,” he told USA Today.
He added that although there are sometimes creative differences because of the “two alphas” on set, he aims to protect everyone.

“I protect everybody including Dwayne. I protected Dwayne more than he’ll ever know. And it doesn’t matter. He doesn’t have to know. But he appreciates it. He knows it. Dwayne has only got one Vin in his life. Dwayne Johnson only has one big brother in this film world and that’s me,” Vin said.

Chris Brown and Lil Wayne Caught In Federal Drug Sting.
Chris Brown and rapper Lil Wayne under investigation for their connections to a well-known Miami drug dealer…
According to The Miami Herald reports,Miami music producer Harrison Garcia, on trial for federal drug charges, used Instagram to upload photos of himself posing with exotic cars, stacks of cash, and rappers Chris Brown and Lil Wayne.

But investigators believe he did more than just party with the hip-hop stars.
Federal authorities on Thursday revealed they are investigating a $15,000 wire transfer last year from Brown to the bank account of Garcia, who boasted that the money was for drugs and the popular cough syrup-and-soda known as “lean.” And Garcia, when he was first arrested last October, confessed that he sold Lil Wayne “a lot of narcotics,” a federal agent testified on Thursday in Garcia’s trial for drug dealing.
…jurors got to see evidence of Lil Wayne — whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter — and Brown’s involvement in the form of text messages seized from Garcia’s phones.
The messages appeared to show Garcia directing his “do-boy” to deliver drugs to Lil Wayne and his crew. “I’ll shoot u some trees,” one message read, a reference to marijuana. “It’s for Wayne,” Garcia allegedly responded via text.
The text message about Brown was more explicit. Garcia sent a bragging text message to a woman of a screen shot of the $15,000 bank deposit from “Christopher Brown” into his account.
“Look who put money my account,” Garcia wrote.
The woman responded: “What that for LOL”

Garcia replied with several smiley face emojis: “Drugs … lean and sh-t.”

Goldman Sachs Is About OWN THE WHITE HOUSE!
(HuffPo) In an attempt to rebut reports that he is governing ineffectively and beholden to a small group of fringe right-wing aides, President Donald Trump is reportedly considering yet another White House staff shakeup just 11 weeks into his presidency.
Axios and The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Trump is thinking of dismissing or demoting his current chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and his key adviser, Steve Bannon. Both outlets reported that former Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn ― who currently serves as Trump’s top economic adviser ― is a key contender to replace Priebus.

“Gary Cohn would be the top pick for chief of staff,” if Priebus is fired, a White House official told The Huffington Post.
In an internal struggle for Trump’s good graces, Cohn has a strong hand: He’s rich, close to the Trump family and has ex-employees who now work for the Trump family in the White House. Perhaps most importantly, his promotion could salve Trump’s ego, which has been bruised by his relatively small inauguration crowd and a series of political failures that began with his attempt to ban Muslims from traveling to the United States and continued through his catastrophic attempt to repeal Obamacare.

Cohn “speaks the language of ‘business,’ which is what Trump understands,” the White House official noted. The language of business is money: Cohn walked away with $285 million when he left Goldman Sachs for the Trump administration, and is in many ways a stand-in for the kind of New York businessmen who have shunned Trump for years. After years of being spurned by the American banking elite ― Trump famously had to turn to Deutsche Bank for cash after burning his creditors in bankruptcy ― he appears to enjoy being part of the club.

The White House denied the reports of a staff shakeup, writing in a statement that “the only thing we are shaking up is the way Washington operates as we push the President’s aggressive agenda forward.”
