#RHoA: Kim Zolciak-Biermann Slams Kenya Moore Over Claims She's in Financial Trouble!
Kim Zolciak-Biermann took to Instagram on Saturday in response to Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kenya Moore's recent comments about her financial situation. In case you missed it, Moore threw some blatant shade at Kim during an appearance on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, in which she weighed in on Zolciak-Biermann's possible return to the Bravo series.
"Yeah, Kim is coming back," Kenya quipped sarcastically. "Kim needs a check, so Kim will be back."
"What about Tardy for the Party, wasn't that doing well?" the host asked, before Moore answered, "The checks were tardy, so she's all here."
It didn't take long for Kim to offer an extremely candid response, where she claims Kenya is purposefully stirring up drama for RHOA's tenth season.

"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," she teased.
When asked if an offer from Bravo is on the table for Kim to consider, she didn't shy away from discussing the positives of a paycheck.
"Listen, I'm in season six of Don't Be Tardy," she told us. "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."

#HIPHOPNEWS: Remy Ma Says "Dust Has Settled" On Nicki Minaj Beef But Not Without One Last Jab
(hiphoxdx) Remy Ma is done beefing with Nicki Minaj once and for all. Kind of. She made the declaration on the daytime talk show The Real, where she is a guest co-host for next week’s episodes. But she didn’t find resolution without making sure people know who, in her eyes, won the fight.
“The dust has settled,” she said in a preview clip shared by Baller Alert. “Some people don’t get that the dust has settled. But I can understand. It’s kinda hard to see the dust settling when you’re in the grave under the dirt.”
For her part, Remy released two diss tracks aimed at Nicki, the scathing “SHETHER” and her attempt to go back-to-back with “Another One.” After that, the First Lady of Young Money dropped “No Frauds” and issued a 72-hour challenge to Remy, which was never answered. Instead, the Terror Squad vet said she’d rather focus on empowering women.
“That old girl, that old Remy Ma, I woulda been beasting still, going extra hard,” she shared with the other women on The Real. “… I say all the time I’m petty, but there’s a thin line between petty and pathetic. You have to stop at some point.”
'This is Us' Moves to Thursdays also gets post-Super Bowl spot for 2018!
This Is Us will premiere on a new night next season.NBC just announced that the hit drama will move from Tuesdays to Thursdays this fall.
The network has had some trouble finding a “must-see” show to fill that primetime slot, so the move isn’t a surprising one.
“We really want it to happen organically, but I think it’s as close to Must-See TV as we’ve ever had in our history,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told THR. “We’re going to try to lead the audience.”
This Is Us is also the lead choice for that big post-Super Bowl spot for 2018.
The show will be followed on Thursdays by the Will & Grace reboot, Great News, and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.
SADNESS: Judge Hatchett Blames Cedars-Sinai For Daughter-In-Law’s Death
Judge Hatchett says Cedars-Sinai Medical Center let her daughter-in-law bleed to death and she wants them to answer for it.
Last April, Kyira Dixon Johnson, died 12 hours after delivering her second child, a healthy baby boy, via c-section.
Hatchett’s son, Charles Johnson IV, filed a suit against the hospital for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Via People:In court documents filed March 22 and obtained by PEOPLE, Charles Johnson IV is suing Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for wrongful death and negligent infliction of emotional distress following the death of his “healthy, vibrant, fun, loving wife,” Kyira Adele Dixon.
The documents allege that on April 12, 2016, 39-year-old Dixon arrived at Cedars-Sinai at approximately 12:30 p.m. for a repeat elective cesarean delivery (Dixon’s first child — son Charles Johnson V — was born via C-section on Sept. 18, 2014).
According to the documents, Dixon’s delivery was performed by Arjang Naim, M.D., and assisted by Benham Kashanchi, M.D., and her husband was present in the operating room.
“The delivery started at 2:31 p.m. Langston Johnson was born at 2:33 p.m. The procedure was completed at or about 2:48 p.m.” the documents read. “At 3:00 p.m., Kyira was out of the operating room and taken to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). … At 3:04 p.m., Kyira was ‘skin to skin’ bonding with her baby.”
But not long after Langston was born, there were signs of a problem. The court documents state that “shortly before 5:00 p.m., blood tinged urine was seen in Kyira’s foley catheter.”
They then state, “At approximately 11:25 p.m, Dr. Naim was notified with a concern for active internal bleeding.
“Shortly thereafter, the massive transfusion protocol was initiated on [Dixon],” and she “was taken to surgery around 12:30 a.m. on April 13, 2016. During surgery [Dixon] was found to have 3 liters of blood in her abdomen.”
“[Dixon] did not survive the ongoing massive blood loss,” the documents state. “[Dixon] was pronounced dead at 2:22 a.m. on April 13, 2016; and the autopsy stated that the cause of ‘death was due to hemorrhagic shock, due to acute hemoperitoneum,’ status post casarean section.”
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said in a statement to PEOPLE that they were “deeply saddened by the death and the toll it is taking on her family.
“Cedars-Sinai is firmly committed to the highest levels of quality, has a comprehensive program to review any problems in patient care, and takes action any time it needs to make changes to maintain our high level of quality,” the hospital said in their statement. “Any time there are concerns raised about a patient’s medical care, we conduct an investigation to determine exactly what happened, including reviewing hospital procedures and the competency of healthcare providers, and make changes as needed to ensure that we continue to provide the highest quality medical care.

#CONGRATS! Jim Parsons & Todd Spiewak Marry in New York City!
Jim Parsons & Todd Spiewak Marry in New York City!
The 44-year-old Big Bang Theory star wed his longtime love Todd Spiewak at the Rainbow Room on Saturday evening (May 13) in New York City.
Jim and Todd have been together for nearly 15 years!
Last year on their anniversary, Jim wrote on Instagram, “I met this guy (the one with the mic) 14 years ago today and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest. One of his greatest gifts to me is that he no longer takes me to sing karaoke. Also, I believe this was a selfie with an actual camera, as our phones couldn’t do that back then hahaha! #todd #anniversary ❤️”
Jim came out as gay in 2012. He and Todd then made their first red carpet appearance together in October 2013.
Toni Braxton & Birdman want YOU to know they’re Still Going Strong!
Toni Braxton and Birdman haven’t officially confirmed their situation, but it’s not hard to tell that the two are more than feeling each other.
Since Spring 2016, the twosome has been spotted together at several red carpet events (including the 2016 BET Awards), the R&B songbird brought the Cash Money honcho out on stage during one of her shows, Toni threw him a huge birthday party in New Orleans a few months ago, and Birdman even gifted Toni with a Bentley SUV just because. So yeah, it’s clear that they’re definitely more than just friends.
And the romance (or whatever they’re calling it) is still in the air.
This week, Toni and Birdman held hands as they exited Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. We assume they both were trying to keep a low profile as they both were wearing sunglasses at night, but photogs still caught up with the couple.

Two weeks ago, BTY YoungN was shot dead at a Shell gas station in Hollygrove. So it ended a hip-hop career started when he began crafting rhymes 13 years ago.

As part of that case, Bannister admitted his role in a shooting.
