#RHoA: SHE’S BACK! Phaedra Parks Rocks Netted Dress As She Attends The 2017 Essence Festival
Phaedra Parks has just gotten over her latest scandal. The disgraced reality TV star spoke during Essence Festival in New Orleans following her axing from Real Housewives of Atlanta last month.
The celebrity lawyer looked relaxed and even happy, and it seemed like the monster scandal was no longer bothering her.
As fans may remember, the 43 year old was fired from the hit series after she spread fake rumors that Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker were planning to drug Porsha Williams’ drink and rape her.
Phaedra climbed the stage at the Ernest M. Morial Convention Center for Essence magazine’s Empowerment Experience.
The mother of two sported a black and navy mesh dress, accessorized with chunky black accessories and strappy sandals.
Other stars who spoke at the event include: Mary J. Blige, Kenya Moore, Soledad O’Brien, Tina Knowles-Lawson, among many others.
Parks took to social media to promote the event and also shared the long list of the high-profile speakers.
‘Last year it was an honor for me to join the @essencefest #EmpowermentEXP Stage. I am thrilled to announce that I will return to #EssenceFest on Friday, June 30 at 2:35 PM for a sitdown with ESSENCE Editor Patrik Henry Bass. I look forward to seeing you and continuing to uplift and inspire,’ she posted.
However, it is no secret that the Georgia alum has been surrounded by scandal and drama.

Parks was fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta back in May after her fake claims were exposed.
Her Essence Festival appearance follows rumors that the controversial star had filmed her final scene with the Bravo show that made her famous, during which she apologized for her lies.
What do you think of the reality TV star getting over her scandal so fast and already moving on to perhaps greater things?

Lady Gaga Shows some Love to Ed Sheeran After Her Fans Attacked Him Online
Well aren’t these folks dumb! Lady Gaga is praising Ed Sheeran and wants her fans to empower all musicians.
In a recent interview, Ed shared that he was decided to quit Twitter after receiving too many cruel comments, and said that Gaga‘s fans are some of the culprits behind the hateful tweets.

“Lady Gaga’s fan base read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f—ing hate,” Ed said. “And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all.”
Gaga has now taken to Instagram to share a selfie of herself with Ed and wants to put all the hate to rest.
“What an incredible talented artist I LOVE ED @edsheeran deserves all our love and respect like all humans do,” Gaga wrote. “I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and apart of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean. No reason to tear down an artist simply because they are on top. Work harder to be kinder everybody. That should be your first duty to humanity.

Thanks GaGa!

SAG-AFTRA & Producers Reach Tentative Agreement On New Film & TV Contract; Read The Terms
Happy Fourth of July, Hollywood. After a marathon overnight bargaining session, SAG-AFTRA has reached a tentative deal on a new film and TV contract, thus averting a threatened strike. The agreement must now be approved by the union’s board of directors, and then ratified by the members. Both are expected to pass overwhelmingly.
The deal was announced at 6:40 a.m Tuesday morning by a rep for the companies. If ratified, the new three-year deal with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers would run through June 30, 2020.
The union says the new deal will generate an additional $256 million for performers over the next three years. Highlights of the tentative agreement include:

Wage increases of 2.5% in the first year, 3% in the second year and 3% in the third year
A one-half percent increase in the current rate of employer contributions paid to the SAG Pension Plan and AFTRA Retirement Fund in the first year of the agreement, raising the total contribution rate to 17.5% effective July 1, 2017
An additional 0.2% increase in funding to the SAG-AFTRA industry cooperative funds, which will support monitoring animal safety on sets, safety training and sexual harassment prevention training
Recognition of Middle Eastern North African as a diverse category in the casting data report
Agreement to study the design and implementation of an electronic reporting system for performer work times
Improved residuals for programming made for SVOD (subscription video-on-demand)

First residual is now due in 90 days rather than one year
Increase in the residual rate
First ever residuals compensation for foreign use
Improvements to money and schedule breaks

Improvements to the advertiser-supported streaming residuals
Outsized increase of 18% for background actors working under the CW supplement
Terms requiring that all background actors be paid double-time starting after 10 hours of work
“This is a forward-looking package with meaningful gains across our entire membership,” said SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris, who chaired the negotiating committee. “Working with our terrific negotiating committee and staff, we achieved significant improvements in streaming new media compensation. We also established comprehensive travel guidelines to eliminate ambiguity and provide a seasonal fee schedule for location series work.

“Over the last 18 months, I’ve met and talked extensively with members throughout the country. Those conversations, along with our comprehensive wages and working conditions meetings, guided our bargaining strategy and helped build strength and unity. I am grateful to our members for their input and steadfast support which helped us achieve this excellent result. I also want to thank my fellow negotiating committee members and staff who worked incredibly hard to secure this deal. They’ve taken time away from their jobs and families to serve the members in these negotiations. I am most thankful to our chief negotiator David White for his expertise and dedication on behalf of the members.”

Said White, the union’s national executive director: “This negotiation was a heavy lift. We addressed several critical concerns related to travel pay and option periods as well as improving the residuals structure for streaming new media. We also achieved historic gains for our background community and additional enhancements affecting the general membership. I thank President Carteris and the negotiating committee for their hard work in achieving this deal. I also want to recognize my invaluable partnership with Chief Contracts Officer Ray Rodriguez, and the many contributions of senior adviser John McGuire, associate national executive director Mathis Dunn, national directors Jennifer Gaudry, Beth Millman and Olga Rodriguez-Aguirre, and the rest of our talented professional staff.”

SAG-AFTRA’s current contract expired Friday at midnight PT and had been extended each of the past three nights. If a deal hadn’t been reached, union leaders had vowed to ask their members for strike authorization. It would have been the first actors’ strike against the film and TV industry since 1980, although the union is currently engaged in a 253-day strike against selected video game companies — the longest strike in SAG history.

Informal talks for the new pact began on May 15, but formal negotiations didn’t begin until May 31, which only gave negotiators a month to reach an agreement
