2764.png


With close to 100,000 coronavirus cases on record and over 1400 people already dead from the contagious disease, in some cases, it’s coming between family members.

Comedian Luenell Campbell and her daughter Da’Nell can relate. It seems the funny lady is among the many Americans who are panic-stricken amid the media-driven hysteria and her daughter ain’t helping, to say the least.

Luenell, 61, kicked her daughter, Da’Nelle Campbell, out of her home after Da’Nelle apparently laughed in her face.

In an emotional post on Instagram, Luenell shared that she banned her daughter from her home for making light of the coronavirus.

Wendy Williams Slams Lamar Odom And Sabrina Parr Over New Reality Series [VIDEO]

1f3a5.png


Wendy Williams launched her daily Wendy @ Home YouTube series this week, which is a shorter version of her talk show that has halted in-studio filming amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On Tuesday’s episode, she took aim at Lamar Odom and his fiancée Sabrina Parr for starring in a new reality show that will take viewers inside their relationship. The series will premiere this spring on the For Us by Us streaming platform (FUBU).

“All right, so, Lamar Odom and Sabrina Parr, they are documenting their relationship on FUBU,” Williams said during the Hot Topics segment of her talk show. “Now, I don’t know what that is. … And Lamar and Sabrina, nobody cares about y’all’s relationship,” she added.

“Sabrina is a life coach, but she’s got a whole bunch of arrest pictures at the police precinct,” she alleged of Parr, 32, who was reportedly arrested for assault in 2015.

Sabrina addressed this last year on Instagram, saying she was “in a very crazy marriage” but that she and her ex got “divorced and moved on.”

Hear more from Wendy about it via the clip above.

Williams also brought up Odom’s sex addiction, saying  “Lamar says he’s a sex addict and they say they don’t want to have sex until they get married,” she said. “Lamar has two kids here in New York, grown. I don’t know what kind of time he spends with these kids. You know what, I feel dirty doing the story.”

Last week, Odom and Parr both took to Instagram to tease their upcoming TV project.

“What’s up people, I hope this video finds you all in good health and corona-free,” Odom said in a video with Parr. “I’m just chilling right here with my soon-to-be wife and we just wanted to bring you all in. We’re going to shoot our own reality show.”

“There’s been a lot of questions online and we really haven’t answered anything because y’all are about to see, as soon as the reality show drops in a couple of weeks, you’ll really see our true love,” Parr added. “We’re both imperfect people, but the point is we love each other and we’re fighting really hard for this relationship and we’re still here.”

“Come live with us,” Odom concluded. “Come holler at us, come support this black love.”

Parr also noted that the series will answer many questions people have about their relationship.

“For everyone asking me ‘where’s @lamarodom,’ ‘are we still together,’ calling me names, making accusations about who I am and what I stand for… you will soon know the TRUTH!” she wrote in the caption of the same clip she shared on her own IG page. “The Lamar and Sabrina reality series will be out officially in a few weeks! Make sure you stay tuned for the release date! It will be all digital and you can watch from anywhere anytime! Exclusively on @forusbyusnetwork and @hotnewhiphop !!!! Go follow them NOW!!!”

In a harrowing interview with fellow Geto Boys member Willie DScarface reveals his major fight with coronavirus.

“It’s the crazies sh*t I’ve ever done and seen in my life,” Scarface says in the video. “I just felt like I was gonna die, bro.” Face is the second known Houston rapper to be diagnosed with the disease. Slim Thug earlier this week confirmed his diagnosis urging people to self-quarantine and stay safe.

“I threw up so much until it was like hot … hot sauce, like the gasses in your stomach are hot. I had no food in my stomach, it was coming up like bile,” Face says in the video. “I couldn’t breathe – I mean, you seen me Will. They had you covered up like I was Hazmat.”

He added, “That wasn’t my first test that I took. They swabbed me again and called me at 11:30 last night and told me I had coronavirus.”

According to Face, Willie visited him in the hospital ten days ago when he was first dealing with massive health failing issues such as pneumonia in his lungs and failing kidneys. Days later, he was placed under a quarantine watch.

Since then, Face has had to be isolated from his own family and now he has to wait until the virus subsides so that he can see about his kidneys.

Mike Tyson has opened up about how he squandered the fortune he made during his boxing career on orgies and hoes.

Tyson admits he turned into “an animal with money” during the height of his career.

“When I was young I was an animal with money” he said on the recent episode of his popular podcast, Hotboxin’.

“Giving people money like f*** everybody, party with everybody and f*** their mothers, their sisters and their cousins… orgies. I was crazy,” he added.

“I was so sick and I had no idea I was so sick. I bought a lot of cars for girls too.”

Hear Mike tell it via the clip above.

As noted by the Daily Mail, Tyson filed for bankruptcy back in 2003 despite reportedly earning more than $300 million during his career.

He recently admitted that he is “looking forward” to death, telling The Sportsman: “From my experience, from what I believe, the more I know about not existing, the more willing I am to die,” he confessed.

“Yeah [I look forward to it], I don’t fear it. Living might be more complicated than dying to me… because living takes a lot of courage. Without the courage, you can’t handle living. Living is a journey; living is a struggle. People have everything and they still can’t do it, they struggle,” he added.

“We take ourselves too seriously; we think we’re somebody. Who the f***, we’re nothing! We come from s***; we think we’re special [but] fame is s***.”

Alicia Keys Opens Up About Lifelong Struggle To Shed Her ‘Mask’ And Live In The ‘Truth’

1f64f-1f3fd.png


Alicia Keys has shared excerpts from her new autobiographical book “More Myself,” which details her lifelong battle to shed her “mask” and live her truth.

“I was building my life around this image of perfection, and it was really oppressive,” writes Keys in an excerpt shared by PEOPLE, adding that she nearly cracked under the pressure of her growing success in 2006. “I was clearly a woman who wanted to talk about truth and empowerment and strength, but when I really looked at myself, I realized that my whole life I’ve kind of been putting on a mask.”

Growing up in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen during the 80s, Keys admits that mask came when she had adopted a tomboy persona to hide the pain of not seeing her father Craig Cook as a young girl.

“For me, a seed of worthlessness was planted in childhood,” she writes. “As well-intentioned as Craig was, and as much as he was dealing with in his own life, his absence impacted me in ways I’m still uncovering. It left a hole in me.”

Keys, whose mother is Scottish-Italian and whose father is Black says “Race was never a part of what made me feel guarded,” she writes.

“You’re the best of both worlds,” my mother would often remind me. And she was right. Yet since my mother understood that America would compel me to choose, she raised me with an awareness that’s still intact: I am a black girl.”

Keys notes that while she excelled academically, she also enjoyed misbehaving as a youth.

“At any one of the shops on the street around the corner from our apartment a kid could get anything: a fake ID (like the one I used to sneak into a club called Tunnel), a fistful of blunts (I smoked my share), a pack of condoms (which led to the used one that somehow got lost under the couch on the afternoon I lost my virginity). My mother had to be strict as a matter of my survival.”

Looking back, “I wasn’t fake, but I was trying to live up to all these fake ideals,” Keys says now. “It was like a habit. I had to start to break it.” These days, she’s speaking her mind a lot more, and feeling as confident on this inside as she portrayed to others all these years. “I feel more like an open book. That’s a beautiful thing.”

Keys wed music producer Swizz Beatz in 2010, and they share sons Egypt, 9, and Genesis, 5.

“More Myself” is published by Flatiron books and will be available in book and audiobook forms March 31. Read the full expert here.

Cardi B Calls Out Celebrities For ‘Causing Confusion’ Over COVID-19 [VIDEO]

1f32e.png


Celebrities such as Tom Hanks and Idris Elba are causing confusion amid the COVID-19 crisis by claiming to have tested positive for the deadly virus but showing no symptoms.

Which is why Cardi B previously suggested that actors are being paid to say they have contracted the virus in order to assist the media in rewriting the narrative about the “face” of the coronavirus.

Many believe there is a plot playing out to minimize the alleged hate being directed at Asians over this outbreak, as well as dispel the myth that Black folks are immune, by using Hollywood A-listers to flip the script.

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER: 

Elba seems to have appointed himself the celebrity spokesman for the coronavirus because ever since he announced his positive test results over a week ago, he has made it a point to posts videos in which he slams every so-called conspiracy theory about the Wuhan, China virus.

Cardi has seemingly responded to Elba, who rejected her suggestion that celebrities have been paid to say they tested positive for coronavirus.

I said what I said

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on Mar 24, 2020 at 4:42pm PDT

In a new IG TV video, Cardi is seen wearing a face mask and calling out how limited test kits are for the average person, while celebrities have access to testing without being visibly sick.

“I said what I said,” she says in the clip, noting that the situation has become confusing for the public, especially when Trump says, “‘Do not get tested because we do not have enough test kits to test everybody.’ But if a celebrity is saying, ‘Hey, listen, I don’t have no symptoms, I’m feeling good, I feel healthy, I don’t feel like nothing, but I went and got tested and I’m positive for the coronavirus—that causes confusion,” the “Money” rapper added.

“That makes people be like, ‘Well, wait a minute now. I don’t have no symptoms, but I know I went out this and that day. Sh*t, I might just have it. Sh*t, I’m scared because I’m around my kid, I’m around my grandparent. What should I do?’” she continued.

“A lot of people live in small-ass apartments with multiple people,” she added, explaining how easy it is to infect your loved ones while self-isolating. “On top of that, a lot of celebrities have the luxury to pay $34,000 or whatever the of*ck it cost to get tested and treated. A lot of these people don’t have that money! Some people don’t even have enough money to of*cking afford health care!”

“This could have been prevented months ago when they found out the sh*t it was doing in China. They shouldn’t be charging Medicaid, health insurance, none of that sh*t. This is y’all fault it got in the motherf*cking country.”

Elba responded to Cardi on Tuesday via an Instagram Live session.

“I think the debate about rich and poor and who’s getting it and who’s not, I think, is not a healthy debate,” he said. “It’s like, I got a test but I also got COVID. Does that make me preferential? I don’t understand that.” Elba’s partner Sabrina Dhowre has also tested positive.

Adding, “I think that the negativity around test-shaming is counterproductive. I don’t see what people get out of that. And also this idea that someone like myself is gonna be paid to say I’ve got coronavirus? That’s absolute bullshit. Such stupidness. People wanna spread that as if it’s news. That’s stupid. It’s the quickest way to get people sick because there’s no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting here saying we’ve got it or we ain’t got it. I don’t even understand the logic of that.”

Are T.I. And Tiny Thinking About Baby Making During Quarantine?

1f4a9.png


People have been speculating about whether or not the isolation caused by COVID-19 will bring couples closer, so close to the point that there will be a baby boom, or so far apart because of all the time spent together that divorces will be imminent. One couple already pleased with all the private time they’re getting to spend with one another is rapper T.I. and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK. FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM & TWITTER. SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE.

This week, Tiny shared a funny video of a comedian rubbing on his girlfriend, whom he can’t seem to keep his hands off of while she’s trying to watch one of her favorite shows. The 44-year-old Xscape singer shared the post with the caption, “I found this funny as [poop emoji]. This me & @troubleman31 all day!” she wrote. “Rona got us in here trying NOT to make a baby!! Too [old woman emoji] for that!! Lol”

T.I. saw her comments and replied, “Oh Babies WILL BE MADE!!

The comment is no longer present on her post, probably because it got such a reaction from her followers, who remarked, “Give Heiress a sisterrrrrr” and “I think y’all got one more in y’all.”

T.I. and Tiny already have a pretty full brood. Together they share son Clifford “King” Harris III, as well as son Major and youngest child Heiress. Outside of that, Tiny has daughter Zonnique from a previous relationship and T.I. has sons Messiah, Domani, and daughter Deyjah from his own previous relationships.

Though she might say she’s too old now, while sharing a short clip of daughter Heiress last year, Tiny revealed that she was getting baby fever yet again. The post was a GIF of her kissing on Heiress when she was a small baby.

“Damn I miss this stage…Make me think I want another one just for a quick min,” she captioned the clip. “I gotta get over my obsession with babies.”

As far as T.I., he said way back in 2008 that he wasn’t putting a cap on the number of children he would have.

“I’ll have as many as the Lord blesses me with,” he told CNN at the time, “as long as I have enough money to take care of them.”
