NeNe Leakes vs. Porsha Williams: The Shade Flies Fast & Furiously Over RHOA Reunion & Closetgate

The 11th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been one for the books.

While NeNe Leakes is very seasoned in this game, this season of RHOA saw the self-proclaimed Head Bitch in Charge become quite undone as she grappled with a rift that formed between her and her cancer-survivor husband, Gregg Leakes.

This stress manifested itself on the show in the form of tear-filled breakdowns, snappy shouting matches with her castmates and, most surprisingly, in a physical confrontation between NeNe, RHOA production, and Porsha. The incident will henceforth be referred to as Closetgate for brevity.

The two episodes after Closetgate explored the rationale and reaction to NeNe’s outburst. From NeNe’s POV, she was justified in her behavior because she told production beforehand not to film her closet and she also told Kandi and Porsha not to go into her closet and they did so anyway.

Porsha and Kandi admit that she did tell them not to go into her closet, but that the physical confrontation was uncalled for.

Porsha also has been insinuating that during the scuffle, NeNe may have put hands on her as she talked about her belt coming undone while demurring when asked to specify how.

Despite this incident happening in the summer, which was SEVERAL months ago, NeNe is still battling with the rest of the cast over Closetgate as the RHOA season 11 reunion trailer showed.

As subsequent episodes have aired, Kandi and NeNe have started their own little WWHL-style post-show video shows where they provide commentary on the episodes.

Kandi’s is way more sophisticated, as it looks like she has actual professionals filming her stuff and it has a brand, “Speak on It,” while NeNe is just filming herself with her iPhone and asking her son Brent to stitch her stuff together in iMovie.

After last week’s episode, where NeNe was caught gagging and laughing as Marlo spilled embarrassing details she heard from one of Eva’s bridesmaids about financial stability and overall character, Kandi sat with Eva to get her reaction to the episode.

NeNe caught wind of the episode, which saw Kandi and Eva both laugh off the fact that NeNe unfollowed them on social media, and the pair also generally threw shade on NeNe’s various breakdowns and her reaction to Closetgate.

NeNe then announced her own YouTube Live, from her CLOSET no less, where she addressed and clarified a bunch of things that the ladies had to say about her, in particular about NeNe being upset with Kandi and Cynthia for inviting Kenya to an event, about how she never did Eva wrong, and how Porsha is pretending that NeNe put hands on her when she didn’t:

The ladies chimed in on social media in reaction to NeNe’s rant.

Eva pointed out that NeNe did her dirty when she sat and ki’ki’d with Marlo while her bridesmaid trashed her:

Eva Responds To NeNe 👀🍑🔥 #RHOA

A post shared by Shādy Experience 🍑 (@realhousewivesatlanta) on

But it was Porsha who drew blood when she called NeNe’s a “bald edges lie” for even daring to claim that Porsha’s cries and screams in reaction to the violence at her home were recorded in a studio and added after the fact:

NeNe took to her YouTube Live again for ANOTHER read and rant where she took on Eva and Porsha and ran through a list of things she did for Porsha, which she felt Porsha should be grateful for and forgot about:

In response, Porsha didn’t like NeNe’s continued refusal to acknowledge the wrongs of her behavior and dropped a nuclear bomb by releasing mean texts that NeNe sent to her after their back and forth on social media:

NeNe defended herself by sharing a congratulatory text message she sent to Porsha after she gave birth, which she did despite the bad vibes between them:

Porsha responded by saying she’s DONE with NeNe.

WHEW, chile! Are y’all tired yet, cause I am.

I don’t know how long this fight is gonna last, but after The Shade Room and others picked up the tiff between the two, NeNe and Porsha both deleted the toxic posts from their respective IG accounts, so it seems like some kind of truce has been called.

Meanwhile, Kandi is over on her social media just GAGGING at the back ‘n’ forth as she prepares for another episode of her “Speak on It” talk show with her next guest… Cynthia Bailey!

In all of this, I think NeNe is wrong more so than the other ladies. And while the producers do paint one of them as the villain each season, and it’s true she set her boundaries with Closetgate clearly, she also can’t defend violence and pretend like ripping the camera guy’s shirt and shoving folks around is ok.

And her inability to merely acknowledge where she was wrong is why all of these ladies are going after her.

This desperation to always see herself in the right bleeds over into NeNe making up far fetched scenarios such as Porsha going into a recording studio and fake hollering in a bid to make NeNe look bad. Get the hell on, NeNe.

Which team are you on? Team NeNe or Team Porsha?

Jada Pinkett Smith Severs Ties With Kris Jenner & the Kardashian Klan After Siding With Jordyn Woods

If there’s one thing no one should underestimate when it comes to Jada Pinkett Smith, it’s her willingness to stand up in defense of those that she loves. The actress is dogged about protecting her family but that feeling doesn’t just apply to her blood relatives.

That same level of protection apparently extends to those she calls family, such as Jordyn Woods, whose father became close with Will after working with him for many years on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Jordyn refers to Will and Jada as her uncle and aunt, and let me tell you, you do not want to end up on Auntie Jada’s wrong side.

If you’ll recall, when the scandal with Jordyn and Khloe’s baby daddy Tristan Thompson broke, the world seemingly descended on little Jordyn. But Jada lifted Jordyn from the ashes and acted as a human shield for the young girl by inviting her on her Facebook show, The Red Table Talk, to give her a safe platform to push back against the Kardashian narrative being peddled.

It worked and many in the black community have now largely decided that they’re more anti-Kardashian than anti-hoe shit and staunchly align with Jordyn and her Aunt Jada and Uncle Will.

While Jada was polite and mostly neutral toward the Kardashians on her show, her decision to so closely defend and protect Jordyn was certain to put Jada in direct conflict with Kris Jenner and her daughters, who she has been friendly with for years.

Evidence of this is now starting to surface with several media outlets noticing that Jada recently stopped following Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian West and Khloe on Instagram, according to TMZ.

There is a serious rupture in one of the most enduring relationships in Hollywood, because Jada Pinkett Smith has made a move signaling what could be the end of her relationship with longtime, close pal Kris Jenner, as well as Kim and Khloe Kardashian … TMZ has learned.

Jada has JUST unfollowed Kris, Khloe and Kim on Instagram, and our sources say it’s all over the fallout involving Jordyn Woods.

You can see the confirmation on Instagram itself, which The Shade Room captured:

TSR STAFF: Christina C! @cdelafresh __________ Catch this tea, #Roomies! #JadaPinkettSmith has reportedly unfollowed her longtime friend #KrisJenner on Instagram because of the whole #JordynWoods drama, which could indicate their relationship may be coming to an end, according to @tmz_tv. __________ Jada also just unfollowed #KimKardashian and #KhloeKardashian in connection to the Jordyn Woods fallout. __________ As y’all well know, Jada And Will Smith are like family to Jordyn and provided her an opportunity to break her silence over the #TristanThompson scandal on her #RedTableTalk show. __________ Jada reportedly made it clear to a number of people that she-read more at 📸: @gettyimages

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

It’s unfortunate when friendships go bust, but in this situation, given Jada and Will’s stance, it was inevitable. I can’t blame either side really, cause Kris has to back her daughters.

It’s important to note, however, that Jada is still following Kylie on Instagram, so her aversion toward the KarJenner Krew isn’t universal.

Chicago PD to Jussie Smollett: Pay Us $130K or We’ll Sue You & Prove You Faked Hate Crime Attack

After all the charges were dropped in the Jussie Smollett case in Cook County, most of us thought that was the end of that. But the City of Chicago and its police department are not letting go.

They are furious about Jussie getting away with murder (figuratively, y’all) and they’re determined to make Jussie pay (literally).

With the criminal charges against Jussie thrown out of court, the City of Chicago is now ginning up to take Jussie to civil court to collect its coins for all the wasted resources they put into investigating Jussie’s allegedly fake hate crime, TMZ reports.

The City is now demanding he pay $130k for the overtime required to investigate the now-infamous “attack.” A City official sent Jussie a demand letter, but his people have already rejected the request, saying the only person owed anything is Jussie — as in, an apology from the Mayor and Police Superintendent.

This has now set up a courtroom showdown, and sources connected to the Mayor tell TMZ … they will absolutely file a civil case to get the money. Under the law, the City can actually collect 3 times the actual amount owed as a penalty — meaning around $390,000.

If Jussie fights it in court, his “attack” case will be fully litigated. A judge will have to decide if the attack was fake before deciding whether Jussie is required to pay. What’s more, the judge would only have to rule that it’s more likely than not — 51/49 percent — that Jussie faked the attack. That’s a much lower standard of proof than a criminal case, which requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt for a conviction.

Now here’s the hard part for Jussie. If a judge rules the attack was fake, it gives the honchos at “Empire” all the ammo they need to say he’s fired, despite the fact the State’s Attorney has dismissed the criminal case.

And, to add insult to injury, if Jussie loses the case but refuses to pay the judgment, the City can execute on the judgment, and that would include garnishing wages and freezing bank accounts — including his “Empire” salary.

To be honest, in looking at this, I don’t know why the City of Chicago didn’t just pursue Jussie through a civil lawsuit in the first place.

While it’s clear that Jussie’s family pressed their friends in the Cook County prosecutor’s office a little too effectively, as the Cook County prosecutors clearly did everything they could to make this go away for Jussie. But they underestimated how quietly they could make this go away and now the Chicago PD and mayor are out for blood. (We won’t even get into how President Trump also wants to see Jussie go down in flames for his fake MAGA bait tale).

So while many black folks were busy applauding Jussie for getting away with it OJ-style, don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Jussie still may pay for his lies in some way.

Atlanta Teen Shot & Killed After Accidentally Knocking on the Wrong Apartment Door

An Atlanta family is in mourning and a man is in police custody after a teen was shot and killed after knocking on the wrong apartment door by mistake.

According to police, 19-year-old Omarian Banks rode home in a Lyft and was dropped off near the wrong breezeway of The Retreat apartment complex in Southwest Atlanta around 12:30 a.m. Friday (Mar. 29).

Police said Banks and his girlfriend had just moved into the apartments and he wasn’t familiar with the area.

Banks went to what he thought was the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, which is upstairs and to the left, but because he was at the wrong building, “upstairs and to the left” was someone else’s unit.

Banks was talking to his girlfriend on Facetime when he knocked on the door, and when he realized he wasn’t at his own apartment, he started to walk away.

Police said that’s when the man inside, identified as 32-year-old Darryl Bynes, grabbed a gun and went to his balcony to confront Banks.

After a short conversation, Bynes shot Banks, police said, and the teen’s girlfriend who he was on Facetime with heard everything.

“I heard him say, ‘Sorry, I’m at the wrong house.’ Then the man said, ‘No you’re not. N***a, you at the right house.’ And he shot two more times,” Banks’ girlfriend told WSBTV.

Another witness told a story similar to Banks’ girlfriend.

“I see him running around the corner and all you hear him saying is, ‘I am sorry. It was the wrong door,’” said a neighbor. “(He said), ‘You ain’t come to the wrong door’ and shot him a third time. I saw him drop to the ground.”

Police Bynes told them he was acting in self-defense when he shot Banks, but officers pointed out that the man shot Banks from his balcony as the teen was coming down the stairs and trying to get away, which is clearly not self-defense.

A family friend described Banks as a hard-working young man who never bothered anybody. “This is a 19-year-old child that didn’t even deserve to die, that hasn’t even lived his life,” Michael Wallace said.

Bynes was charged with murder and he’s being held at the Fulton County Jail without bail. Arrest records show he’s been to jail before on various charges like criminal trespass (2006), drug possession with intent to distribute (2006 & 2009), and driving without a valid license (2017).

Bynes’ family doesn’t think he should have “murder” added to his criminal record though.

The man’s cousin Makayla Johnson told WSBTV: “He is an innocent father. He has five kids. He was protecting his family. His truck was stolen earlier this week, right now, he’s just trying to protect his family.”

Bynes is scheduled to go before a judge Saturday morning (Mar. 30).

“The Wendy Williams Show” Going on Week-Long Hiatus Amid Reports Wendy’s Husband’s Mistress Gave Birth to Love Child

It hasn’t even been a full month since Wendy Williams returned to The Wendy Williams Show and she’s already taking another break.

Amid reports Wendy’s husband and his mistress welcomed a love child last week, it’s now being reported that The Wendy Williams Show will be going on a pre-planned hiatus the week of April 1st.

According to Page Six, Wendy will air repeats next week and resume taping new episodes the following week.

“‘The Wendy Williams Show’ is taking a previously scheduled spring break hiatus and airing repeat episodes during the week of April 1st,” a spokeswoman for the show said in a statement. “The show will return with original episodes on April 8th.”

Although the timing is kind of awkward, considering all of the drama said to be going on in Wendy’s personal life, sources close to production say that this hiatus has “nothing to do with recent events” and was planned months ago.

One source told Page Six: “The staff is excited to have Wendy back, and they understand what’s been going on with her, but it’s business as usual.”

This latest hiatus comes less than a month before Williams returned from a two-month break.

When Wendy came back to the show on March 4th, she said that she was dealing with complications related to her Graves’ disease, but a couple of weeks later, she revealed she was actually living in a sober house to treat her issues with addiction.

Since then, multiple sources have confirmed that Williams’ husband’s mistress Sharina Hudson did, in fact, give birth to a baby girl and it is widely speculated that Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, is the newborn’s father.

The day the story broke, Williams reportedly checked herself out of the sober living home and went on a drinking binge before eventually being found by members of her team who took her to the hospital.

After being treated with IV fluids, she returned to the Queens, NY-based sober facility and taped an episode for her show the next day.

“Wendy is not in a good way, everyone is so concerned for her,” a source told Page Six. “The sad thing is that she’s been working so hard to stay sober and she’s been so honest in her struggles with all her fans, and this just tipped her over the edge. But the fact she still came to the set just shows how strong she’s trying to be.”

When TMZ caught up with Wendy on Wednesday (Mar. 27), she flashed her wedding ring and told them she felt “wonderful.” She said she had just left Pilates and was on her way to a “book meeting.”

Meanwhile, sources say that despite the alleged turmoil going on behind the scenes, Kevin still works on The Wendy Williams Show as an executive producer and judging by how he and Wendy act around people on set, you would never know that their marriage is in shambles.

Hanna Provides a Gritty, Grounded Take on Its Titular Teen Assassin

esme creed-miles plays the teenage assassin Hanna in Amazon prime series.

Amazon has dropped all eight episodes of Hanna, the television adaptation of the 2011 Joe Wright film. The film starred Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana, and introduced audiences to the young Saoirse Ronan as the remorseless teen assassin. The film was well received, mainly thanks to Ronan’s strong performance and the stylistic dark fairy tale elements that framed the story.

Creator David Farr’s (The Night Manager) series focuses less on the surreal fairy tale elements in favor of grounded, brutal take on the subject matter. The series stars Esme Creed-Miles in the titular role, alongside Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon) as her father Erik and Mirielle Enos (The Catch) as CIA agent Marissa Wiegler.

While the film was entertaining, it left some viewers with questions regarding Hanna’s origin story and her abilities, areas that the series ably fills in and explores. The opening of the first episode sees Kinnaman snatching baby Hanna from a secret government facility and going on the run with her and her mother, before a tragic chase and car wreck sends them into the bleak and snowy Romanian forest.

From there, Hanna’s father spends the next 16 years training his daughter in marksmanship, hand to hand combat, and survival skills as they eke out an existence in the unforgiving landscape. The series spends time showing Hanna’s isolation and her desire to explore the world beyond the woods.

Esme Creed-Miles, who plays Hanna, takes on the role with athletic skill and a fierce, at time feral, performance. Her intensity comes as no surprise when you find out that she’s the daughter of Samantha Morton (Harlots) and Charlie Creed-Miles (Ripper Street). One wonders what would happen if Morton’s The Walking Dead character Alpha ever encountered the teenage assassin.

The television series makes for a satisfying stand-alone story, with 8 hours to explore its character’s origins and inner workings. The first two episodes manage to retell the events of the film, but with more time for character development and storytelling. The supporting characters get more to do, and we learn more about Enos’s frosty agent and Kinnaman’s survivalist father.

This also allows for Hanna to form real relationships with people in the outside world, especially Sophie (Rhianne Barreto) who lends plenty of charisma and empathy as the party girl teen who befriends the young assassin. And Hanna herself gets more time to adjust to the outside world, as her survivalist instincts become entangled with her exploration of teen girlhood.

The series moves at a brisk pace, with beautiful cinematography and sharp, stylish directing from Sarah Adina Smith (Legion). The fight scenes are brutal and effective, and Creed-Miles is riveting as the lead. All in all, this is a series worth watching, with shades of Orphan Black and Alias that makes the spy thriller a highly entertaining binge-watch.

The Teaser Trailer for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Will Keep You up at Night

If you were like us, you spend your youth being alternately terrified and fascinated by Alvin Schwartz’s book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Whether you were telling the stories at a slumber party, or rereading them under the covers with a flashlight way past your bedtime, the macabre collection made an indelible imprint on a generation of kids, thanks in no small part to the creepy illustrations by Stephen Gammell.

Frankly, it’s surprising that it took this long for the popular book series to be adapted for the big screen, but given the pedigree of the film, it seems like it will be worth the wait. Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro is producing the film and wrote the script alongside screenwriters Dan and Kevin Hageman (Trolls Hunters: Tales of Arcadia). André Øvredal (Troll Hunter) directed the film.

The official synopsis for the film reads:

“It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying tome.”

Since the stories are based in folklore and urban legend, the idea of making the film a period piece fits nicely within the theme. So does the meta-plot of a book being the source of the evil. According to the trailer, a group of teens come across a collection of scary stories written by the mysterious Sarah Bellows. Once the teens read the stories, the gruesome events come to life.

It’s a smart way to pay homage to the book and to adapt several different stories without resorting to an anthology structure. The film will directly reference 5 or 6 classic stories while alluding to others. Those that made the cut include “The Red Spot”, “Harold”, “The Big Toe”, and “The Dream”.

In a press conference, del Toro discussed why he chose the time period he did, saying “I had to come up with a concept that encompassed that theme … We tried to find a period of time in which stories affected everyone. Who we were as humans. What the U.S. was a nation at that moment. And we started to very carefully lay down the pieces to make it thematically relevant to the stories we were telling.”

Another del Toro signature will be an emphasis on practical effects for the film instead of CGI. The director is famous for his practical effects work, which bring a tactile realism to films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy. The effects team based their work heavily on Gamell’s iconic illustrations. “For me, sculptors are like actors. You cast it,” del Toro said. “So I wanted [sculptors] who could embody the exact feeling on the sculpture [of] the painting…So we used several of the best creature guys in the business to render each of the drawings and bring them to life.”

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will be released on August 9th.

Things We Saw Today: The Trailer for Season Two of She-Ra Is Pure Princess Power

Fans of Netflix’s fun, feminist adaptation of classic Filmation heroine She-Ra won’t have long to wait for season two. During a WonderCon panel for the series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, creator Noelle Stevenson announced that She-Ra would return on April 26th. She also premiered the trailer for the new season, which shows tensions rising in the kingdom of Etheria.

The new season will see princesses Adora (Aimee Carrero), Glimmer (Karen Fukuhara), Perfuma (Genesis Rodriguez) and Mermista (Vella Lovell) go up against the Horde, lead by Adora’s former BFF Catra (AJ Michalka). Stevenson also discussed her love of Dungeons & Dragons, revealing which class she thought each character would embody.

“According to the showrunner, Adora is a fighter while She-Ra is a paladin — specifically, one who would use fancy dice that roll badly. Additionally: Catra is a rogue, Scorpia is a fighter or barbarian, Frosta is also a barbarian, Bow is “half-ranger, half-bard … like a ranger that took classes in bard” and Glimmer, of course, is a sorcerer.”

Clearly there is no shortage of nerdy women behind the helm of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, a quality that makes the series a delight for fans young and old. Are you a She-Ra fan? Are you excited for Season two?

Kerry Katona weighs in on Lorraine Kelly tax controversy: ‘Fair b****y play!’

Kerry wants to take a leaf out of TV presenter Lorraine Kelly’s book…

kerry katona

This week’s guest columnist, Kerry Katona fills us in on returning to boot camp, her Celebs Go Dating stint, and what she thinks of ITV’s Lorraine Kelly avoiding a hefty £1.2 million tax bill…

kerry katona

I’m in a great relationship… with myself!

I’ve walked away from Celebs Go Dating in a really great relationship… with myself!

It was an amazing experience, but no wonder I just got married all the time – all that dating is hard work!

The experience has taught me that I don’t need anybody.

I didn’t find it hard to be by myself before, but I just wanted that dream of being a mum and wife and having that ‘2.5 kids’ family, so I kept bringing a man into my life as I thought that’s what the children needed. But I’m more 
than enough for them!

Back to boot camp

I first went to boot camp 
a decade ago with a magazine, and now I’m back. The exercise is good for your mental health, which is where it all starts for me, and then losing weight is 
a added bonus!


MORE: Kerry Katona lashes out at ‘disgusting’ Sarah Harding in brutal rant: ‘She’s a mess’

I never weigh myself – all that matters is if I feel good in my head.

Thanks, Lorraine!

TV presenter Lorraine Kelly avoided 
a £1.2m tax bill, as she claimed she’s playing an actress on her show, Lorraine.

I’m confused she got away with this, but fair, b****y play to her! I know what I’m saying on my next tax bill. Thanks for the tip, Lorraine!

‘I’ve put my kids off dating!’

Victoria Beckham’s 16-year-old son Romeo is rumoured to be dating actress Millie Bobbie Brown, 15.

None of my kids are dating, which I’m happy about. My Lilly [16] isn’t interested. She said, ‘Why the heck would I get a boyfriend, it’s just a distraction!’

I think I’ve put them off dating for life! But we’ve all been 16.

As long as they’re safe and not doing it on a street corner or in the park like I did when 
I was at that young age!

‘Social media is fake!’

It’s been reported that the number of social media posts glamorising eating disorders is spiralling.

Social media is fake, and it’s about teaching your kids to take it all with a pinch of salt.

kerry katona

One thing I teach my kids is other people’s opinion of you is none of your business.
