Sheree Whitfield fans took the opportunity to give her a piece of their minds regarding her RHOA performance.

‘I’m totally disappointed in you this@season, Kim was a racist liar the whole season, and you never put her in her place. I’m quite sure you’re able to identify racism when you see it. That makes you as bad as she is,’ one of Sheree’s followers wrote.
‘Do you seriously agree with Kim’s racism comments though? Does that align with the episode that you did with your son regarding the matter?’ another commenter inquired.
‘@shereewhitfield nope u stayed quiet to avoid the hot seat with all the mess you talked all season..’ someone else said while being visibly disappointed.
‘@shereewhitfield I hold great Respect for you in telling your story. I survived over 20 yrs of abuse. It’s not easy to trust nor talk about! Much love to you sweetheart. A class act one supporter of Sheree’s behavior wrote.

#Empire: Taraji P. Henson Says She Identifies With Cardi B In Essay For TIME's 100 Most Influential List
TIME magazine just released its “100 Most Influential” People list this morning, which features some of the most prominent figures and breakout stars in pop culture, including Rihanna, Issa Rae, Chadwick Boseman, Lena Waithe, Tiffany Haddish, Sterling K. Brown and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler.
Among the artist tributes was Taraji P. Henson’s moving essay about one of this year’s honorees, Cardi B. The Golden Globe winner praised the Invasion of Privacy star as you would expect a lifelong friend to do. But, in truth, Henson actually started following the “Bodak Yellow” rapper a couple of years ago because of her funny and all-too-relatable videos posted on Instagram.
Henson opens the essay by reminiscing on how people, much like with Cardi B’s naysayers, judged as her being “too edgy” for the acting biz.
“When you are cool with who you are, no one can use it against you,” Henson wrote. “I identify with Cardi B, because she knows that too. The first time I went on her Instagram page, she was so raw, coming at you, like, whoa! She used words like 'shmoney' and 'shmoves,' and she talked openly about being a former stripper. And she was proud of it—like, So what, I was on the pole, look what I parlayed that into? When she showed her soul like that, I hit the Follow button. I felt like she had the voice of the people, you know what I mean?”
Henson then closed out the piece by celebrating Cardi B’s talent and giving her props on her biggest record to date, “Bodak Yellow.”
“Now she’s the biggest thing in music, and even with all those eyeballs watching, she’s still unapologetically herself.”
Here’s hoping these two continue to make money moves, and maybe even collaborate on the big screen in the near future.

#HipHopNews: Lil Wayne Reveals His Top 5 G.O.A.T. Rappers
Lil Wayne is often regarded as a G.O.A.T. But the New Orleans rapper’s own top 5 list features other great hip-hop acts.
Revealing his favorites to Complex, Tunechi said his top 5 G.O.A.T. list includes Cam’ron, UGK, 8 Ball & MJG, Missy Elliott, and JAY-Z.
Many have called Tunechi a G.O.A.T. as well. In March of 2016, Kendrick Lamar heaped the praise on Weezy. “Lil Wayne is the greatest,” he said. “Not only because of his music but also because of the culture he put behind it. It was a big part of what he was talking about, so we always hold Lil Wayne in high regards.”
Drake and Nicki Minaj have also referred to Wayne as a G.O.A.T.
$5 million rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons dropped
An aspiring filmmaker’s $5 million rape lawsuit against Russell Simmons has been dropped.
Months after Jennifer Jarosik sued the hip-hop mogul, attorneys for both parties have signed a stipulation for dismissal, according to documents obtained by Page Six on Wednesday.
Jarosik claimed in her January lawsuit that Simmons “pounced on her” when she shut down his request to have sex at his Los Angeles home in 2016. She said Simmons invited her there when she moved to LA, a decade after first meeting him.
“Mr. Simmons practices meditation, yoga and is a long time vegan practicing non violence against animals,” Jarosik’s lawyer, Perry Wander, told Page Six in a statement in January. “So basically he treats animals better than women.”
Simmons has maintained that his relationship with Jarosik was consensual.
“This allegation is absolutely untrue,” Simmons said in a statement released to Page Six in January. “I look forward to having my day in court — where, unlike the court of public opinion, I will have the ability to make use of fair processes that ensure that justice will be done and that the full truth will be known.”
News of Jarosik’s lawsuit came amid sexual misconduct accusations by other women — including one person who sued him for $10 million in March — leading him to launch a failed #NotMe campaign in his defense.
“I vehemently deny all the allegations made against me,” he said in March. “They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women.”

Is Rihanna Really Planning On Moving To Paris To Be Closer To Her Boyfriend Jameel? – The Truth!
New reports are claiming that Rihanna is planning on moving to Paris in order to be close to her significant other Hassan Jameel! Here are all the details!
Apparently, the superstar wants to purchase a house in the most romantic city in the world just to be close to her boyfriend.
One insider dished that ‘Hassan hates Los Angeles, so Rihanna has been traveling to Europe constantly to see him.’
As a result, the singer has started to really love the ‘low-key way of life’ in France.
‘They could have a relatively normal existence there without harassment from fans and paparazzi,’ the same source added.
In addition to that, Rihanna has also been focusing on her design work with Puma, headquartered in Germany.
Therefore, ‘It is a great idea for her to be based in one of the fashion capitals of the world. — It is a win-win.’
However, Rihanna is yet to address the moving reports and considering she has homes in both L.A. and New York, at this point, it is not plausible that she will actually relocate.
In fact, the reports that the artists were planning on moving to Paris have been going around since the beginning of this year.
Back in January, it was proven that the news reports were not true and that seems to be the case this time around as well.
Besides, RiRi has a lot of business ventures in the United States that she would not just leave behind.
As for her relationship with Hassan, the two have reportedly been going strong despite the distance so why bother?
The pair is very private about their romance, and they haven’t even officially confirmed they are dating.
Regardless, they keep being photographed together, so there’s no question about that.

Prince's Family is Suing Walgreeens and sue Trinity Medical Center
Last week the Carver County attorney's office declined to file charges in the death of rocker Prince Rogers Nelson after completing their investigation [click here if you missed that].
Now Prince's family is suing Walgreen's and the hospital that treated Prince for a drug overdose a week before he died...
Prince's family -- repped in the lawsuit by trustee Michael A. Zimmer -- just filed to sue Trinity Medical Center out of Illinois for allegedly failing to properly diagnose and treat Prince's opioid addiction before he suffered another, and ultimately fatal, overdose a week later.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the family claims that Trinity's action -- or lack thereof -- was a direct and proximate cause of Prince's death. They're also suing one of Trinity's doctors, Dr. Nicole Mancha, as well as an unidentified pharmacist and Walgreens employee whom they claim were involved in providing care to him in his final days. They're suing Walgreens, too, btw.
In regards to Walgreens, Prince's family claims the drug store chain was dispensing narcotic prescription medications to Prince for an invalid medical purpose and failed to make sure he was using the drug properly.
Lord just let that Man sleep!
