ICYMI: Even In His Death, Philando Castile Is Still Taking Care Of Minnesota Students

Even in his death, Philando Castile is taking care of the kids he served everyday. Find out how is legacy is being honored inside…

Philando Castile, the man who’s fatal shooting by a police officer went viral after it was captured on Facebook live, is being honored in a major way. A memorial fund set up in his name has raised enough money to pay off school lunch debts at schools across St. Paul, MN for one year.

Metropolitan State University psychology professor named Pam Fergus was inspired to start The Philando Feeds The Children Fund after hearing stories about how the former cafeteria supervisor would help pay for students’ lunches with his own money. The students affectionately called him “Mr. Phil” and he also maintained great relationships with the staff.

According to NBC News, the fund raised more than $75,000 after originally setting the goal at just $5,000.

"This fund really speaks to exactly who Philando Castile was as a passionate school nutrition leader," Stacy Koppen, director of the district’s nutrition services told NBC News.

On average, school meals cost $400 a year for one student’s lunch according to Koppen. She shared that families in the St. Paul Public School system who fall outside the qualification level for free and reduced lunch “most definitely” need the kind of intervention support this fund provides.

“We as a community have to work together in order for things to work,” Phildano’s mother Valerie told WCCO. “This would’ve meant everything to him.”

This is AH-MAZING.

As you know, Philando was gunned down in his car by police officer Jeronimo Yanez while his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and her daughter looked on in horror. It sparked national outrage about police brutality and is one of the reasons why people like Colin Kaepernick are risking their livelihoods to raise awareness.

Philando’s family reached a $3 million settlement with the city of St. Anthony after Yanez was acquitted.

Hazel-E Apologizes For Anti-LGBT Comments, No Apology For Brown Skinned Black Women She Offended

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 22-10-2017

 photo haze1.png

Hazel-E has been doing the most on social media lately. The reality star and her boyfriend Rose Burgandy lashed out on the LGBT community and Hazel even popped off on dark skinned black women. She apologized for her homophobic comments, yet she has not apologized for her rant against black women. Get it all inside…

“Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Hazel-E is backtracking after unleashing homophobic comments on social media. The reality star and her rapper boyfriend Rose Burgandy were doing the most, declaring all gay people should “burn in hell.”

Apparently, Rose’s sexuality was questioned and that caused him to launch into an anti-LGBT tirade on his Instagram, citing what the Bible says and wishing all gays “burn in hell.” Hazel then joined in, saying, “Burn in hell just like God said in the Bible.”

 photo haze3.png

Here’s the video of a man named Camyonce outing Rose Burgandy (aka Denzel) as a gay man: 

After the backlash, Hazel realized she f****up because now she’s backtracking. She spoke with TMZ where she apologized to her LGBT fans and even revealed she has a team of gay people that “glam” her up on a daily. She apologized for saying they’ll burn in hell, but she still played the religion card.

Peep her apology below:

As all this is going on, Hazel-E and Rose Burgandy were also involved in a social media beef with Instagram comedian Jess Hilarious. Well, she popped back at both of them. And her clapback is savage AF. Check it:

 

Meanwhile, "Love & Hip Hop" creator Mona Scott Young spoke out in response to Hazel’s homophobic comments:

 

“People who spew hate, in truth hate themselves” #SpiritDay #ActionsSpeakLouderThanWords

A post shared by Mona Scott-Young (@monascottyoung) on Oct 19, 2017 at 5:02am PDT

 

Sources tell TMZ Mona wants Hazel booted off the show. While Mona is the creator of the series, her production company is not the only one involved, so a group must decide Hazel’s fate. It’s reported Mona is "disgusted" by Hazel’s anti-gay comments and also what she said about African-American women.

Oh, and it appears Hazel has lost her deal with Shoe Dazzle after the remarks:

 

Sheesh!

Not only did Hazel come at the LGBT community, she also went on a tirade against dark skinned black women who continue to "hate" on her:

 photo haze2.png

The delusion! Hating on you because you’re light skin? Girl, BYE! She has yet to backtrack on this, but she tried to save face with this post:

Nicki Minaj Will Reportedly Be A Star Witness In Brother’s Rape Trial

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 22-10-2017

 photo nickiwitness.png

There are updates in the rape case against Nicki Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj. And it’s being reported Nicki is the star witness in her brother’s defense. More inside…

The rape case against Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, just got its star witness. And it just so happens to be his famous sister, Nicki Minaj (above at the T, New York Times Style Magazine event in NYC rocking Dvani black and white diamond bracelet and diamond earrings, a Harry Kotlar yellow diamond ring and two platinum diamond rings, as well as a Hearts On Fire diamond ring and bracelet).

According to PageSix, the “No Frauds” raptress will be the crux of the defense. Why? Well, they’re creating a narrative that Jehlani’s estranged wife, Jacqueline Robinson, is after Nicki’s money and concocted this whole rape story in hopes of receiving $25 million.

The site reports:

In opening statements in Nassau County, the brother’s lawyer said Thursday the whole case was an attempt to extort $25 million from the hugely successful “Anaconda” rapper.

The little girl’s mother, Jacqueline Robinson, “related to Nicki that, ‘I can make the charges go away for $25 million,’” said David Schwartz, lawyer for Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj.

Robinson and the brother had just married when Robinson’s then-11-year-old daughter told officials in graphic detail that her new stepfather was raping her as often as four times a week, prosecutors say.

 photo nickibrother.jpg

Assistant District Attorney Emma Slane told jurors in her opening statement that the girl’s 8-year-old brother was the one who spilled the beans about the alleged sexual abuse. It’s reported the boy said he was beaten by Jehlani after he walked in on him having sex with his sister.

It was previously reported cops found a pair of the little girl’s pajama pants with Jehlani’s DNA. Jehlani’s lawyer is arguing that the girl’s mom put the DNA on the pants herself to frame him.

“An evil Jackie targeted him,” the lawyer said, pointing to Maraj, “trying to get him to marry her, and then just four months after they were married, we have this.”

You’ll recall, the Young Money rapper posted Jehlani’s $100,000 bond after he was arrested in December. It’s unclear right now whether or not Nicki will take the stand in court. However, private investigator Les Levine said Nicki will be called on her brother’s behalf, but didn’t reveal which day.

Thoughts?

Erica Ash Set To Take Over BET With New Legal Drama + Taraji P. Henson & Will Smith Drop Fire Movie Trailers + Joseline Hernadez Talks Co-Parenting With Stevie J

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 21-10-2017

 photo ericashow.jpg

In TV news, Erica Ash is gearing up to take over television with her own legal drama. In movie news, Taraji P. Henson and Will Smith are featured in their respective movie trailers. Meanwhile, Joseline Hernandez opens up about her co-parenting relationship with Stevie J. Get it all inside…

Erica Ash will be taking the BET scripted TV crown now that “Being Mary Jane” will be coming to an end.

The “Survivor’s Remorse” star has nabbed her own lead in BET’s upcoming legal drama “In Contempt.” And we’ll get 10 episodes for the first season.

The Hollywood Reporter has the deets on the new series:

The procedural is in the fast-paced world of a legal aid office in New York City and follows Gwen Sullivan (Ash), an opinionated attorney whose passion for her job and clients make her arguably the most talented public defender in her district.

The cast also includes Megan Hutchings (Reign) as Tracy Campbell, a public defender and Gwen’s friend and roommate; Christian Keyes (BET’s Let’s Stay Together) as Charlie Riggs, an attorney with an ego who is Gwen’s boss and friend with benefits; Mouna Traoré (BET’s Book of Negroes) as Vanessa Winters, a rookie attorney learning what it means to be woke; Tobias Truvillion (Empire, The Blacklist) as Bennett Sherman, Gwen’s longtime secret crush and former law professor; Richard Lawson (Poltergeist, Grey’s Anatomy, Real Husbands of Hollywood) as Earl Sullivan, Gwen’s father; Ronnie Rowe Jr. as Gwen’s professional nemesis; and Daniel Kash as Gwen’s boss.

The drama, which is in production in Canada, was created by Terri Kopp (Law & Order, Third Watch, BET’s Rebel), who serves as showrunner. Blue Ice Pictures president Lance Samuels and Daniel Iron (BET’s The Book of Negroes) executive produce for the company. BET will wholly own the project.

Sounds interesting.

 

 

Congrats Erica!

In movie news…

Taraji P. Henson and Tyler Perry are teaming up for the third time for another blockbuster.

This time, the “Empire” star will flex her acting chops in the upcoming drama Acrimony. Taraji will play a wife who grows tired of her husband (Lyriq Bent) and his devious ways. It looks intense as Taraji has us all sucked in with her impeccable acting abilities.

“Don’t tell me I don’t have the right to be angry. You don’t know what he did to me,” she said in the trailer.

The cast also includes Tika Sumpter, Danielle Nicolet, and Ajiona Alexus (who plays a younger version of Taraji’s character and on “Empire”). It’s directed by Tyler Perry Studios.

Peep the trailer above. Acrimony hits theaters March 30, 2018.

For another new movie…

Get ready for some action!

Will Smith goes back to his crime fighting roots in an upcoming Men In Black-esque film.

The Hollywood veteran gets suited in a police uniform to fight crime in David Ayer’s fantasy thriller Bright. The film follows follows a world where magical creatures live side by side with humans and the police have a division that handles crimes involving magic. Will’s character is forced to work with Orc (Joel Edgerton) to find something that unsavory elements are prepared to kill for – a powerful wand.

Peep the newest extended trailer above.

In reality TV news…

 

 

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Joseline Hernandez is speaking out about her co-parenting relationship with her daughter’s father (or as she likes to call him, baby daddy) Stevie J. Surprisingly, they seem to be doing well with co-parenting little Bonnie Bella. But, we all know how quickly that can change. However, it’s nice to see they’re doing good right now for her sake.

Rihanna keeps a fresh look in her arsenal of fashion possibilities.

The “Work” singer was spotted making her way inside Milk Studios in NYC in a head turning look. It definitely plays up on her 90s vibe that she has been rocking late.

The fashionista rocked a look fresh off the runway from LUAR FISH’s SS18 collection. The oversized off-the-shoulder blazer dress swallowed her frame, yet she still made it work.

The Bajan beauty finished her street style with a Vetements "Genetically Modified" hat, a funky pair of Off-White x Jimmy Choo heels, a Delvaux handbag. And then, she put that Alexander Wang x Judith Leiber money bag inside of it. (That’s the same money bag Beyonce wore for the TIDAL benefit concert earlier this week).

RiRi makes anything look good.

Also in the Big Apple…

Earlier this week, Keyshia appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” to perform her new single “Incapable.” After her performance, she chopped it up with Wendy and explained she decided to appear on “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” to promote her new music.

We wonder if she’ll return for next season.

The proceeds from the 3rd annual star-studded benefit concert will be distributed amongst organizations aiding in relief and recovery for those affected by the unprecedented natural disasters, including: Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria and the earthquakes that took place in Mexico.

It’s cuffing season and the couples are out. Go inside for flicks of Wiz Khalifa & Izabela Guedes, Meagan Good & DeVon Franklin, Zoe Saldana & Marco Perego, Derek Fisher & Gloria Govan, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen inside…

 photo cos7.jpg

Cuffing season is in full effect. Well, these couples have been “cuffed” for a while now. Still, they’re out and about putting their love on front street while doing things that couples do.

Rapper Wiz Khalidfa and his model girlfriend Izabela Guedes love matching up their style. However, instead of wearing matching sneakers like they usually do, this time they hit the L.A. streets showing off their toned abs.

 photo cos6.jpg

Izabela showed off her mid-section in an Off-White copped top, while Wiz showed off his pecs in an Off-White checkered shirt as they made their way inside Catch restaurant.

 photo cos4.jpg

These two love coordinating their ‘fits.

Speaking of color coordinated couples….

 photo Cos2.jpg

Look who is still going strong: Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan. The twosome stepped out to Delilah in West Hollywood for good eats and drinks. And, as you can see, they rocked black and white for their date night.

Derek recently got booted from "DWTS," so it looks like they’ve got more time to speand together now…

As for a happily married couple…

 photo cos16.jpg

Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin took a break from their joint Foxy Brown project for a fun night out. They also hit up Catch restaurant for some time together.

 photo cos5.jpg

 photo cos15_1.jpg

Yes Meagan. Chauffeur your man girl.

As for the couples with babies…

 photo cos3.jpg

Zoe Saldana has also been a busy bee. She has been filming for the Avatar sequels. So, when she got some free time, she spent the day with her husband Marco Perego and their sons Cy, Bowie and Zen in Milan, Italy.

 photo cos9.jpg

Aww look at baby Zen! The couple (and their twins) secretly welcomed baby Zen about 8-months ago, at least that’s when they made the announcement that they had a new bundle of joy.

 photo cos8.jpg

 photo cos11.jpg

 photo coop1.jpg

 photo cos10.jpg

Gorgeous family.

Another fam on the move…

 photo cos14.jpg

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen took their baby girl Luna Stephens and her little Adidas sneakers out to lunch at the Hotel Bel-Air recently. Of course, nothing but the best for their bundle of joy.

 photo cos12.jpg

If you’re a fan of Chrissy’s on SnapChat, you get a front row seat to watch Luna grow up. It’s fun watching her try new foods and dance around the house.

 photo cos15.jpg

Speaking of babies, there’s a rumor that Chrissy is pregnant with baby #2. According to Life & Style magazine, Chrissy’s mom, Vilailuck Teigen, spilled the tea during a taping of Chrissy’s show "Lip Sync Battle."

The site reports:

“Chrissy’s mom was overheard saying, ‘My daughter is so emotional these days because she’s pregnant.’” Chrissy and John have been having marital issues lately, so she’s praying this baby “will keep her and John together,” says an insider. “It should give them a huge reason to make the marriage work."

Hmm….take it with a grain of salt as neither Chrissy nor John have confirmed this.

It’s always nice to give flowers to those who mean something to you while they’re still here. And it’s even more special when you can honor icons while helping the youth at the same time.

Queen Latifah has been getting all her flowers recently. After she was honored with the with the Jimmy Iovine Icon Award at the Revolt Music Conference in Miami, the Queen was front and center to be honored at VH1’s 20th annual “Save The Music” gala.

The female emcee was praised for her trailblazing contributions to Hip Hop and her continued efforts to make sure students across the nation have access to music in schools.

Wyclef was tapped to perform to honor his mentor. Queen was hands on with Wyclef and the Fugees back in the back, putting them up on the music industry when they first came in.

"Latifah is family. She’s magical," he said. “She’s been responsible for so many people’s careers including the Fugees. People don’t know that. Latifah put the Fugees on tour before the Fugees were the Fugees. She sees greatness. I love her for that."

Nice!

The night’s honoree had loads of fun on stage and in the audience with "Power" stars LaLa Anthony and Naturi Naughton during the gala:

Blac Chyna is NOT stopping at that $20K a month she’s going to be getting from baby’s daddy Rob Kardashian.  She’s going for the Kardashian-Jenner’s jugular with a new lawsuit.  Deets inside…

Blac Chyna spent the weekend celebrating with son King Cairo for his 5th birthday(above).  And baby’s dad Tyga joined in.  We hear the nanny is who got them to come together for the sake of King and put their differences aside.  And things went quite well.

But something else she just pulled out of her bag of tricks: Another lawsuit!

The Lashed queen unleashed a fiery new lawsuit naming not only Rob, but his mother Kris and sisters Kim, Kylie, Kendall and Khloe!  She’s suing everybody!

Chyna claims the whole family conspired to torpedo her career and reality show after ish came to a head between her and Rob.  And she’s not having it.

Radar Online unveiled snippets of the explosive suit, filed this morning in L.A. Superior Court, which calls out the family’s abuse, stripper shaming and revenge porn:

“Rob Kardashian is an abuser intent on destroying Angela White, the mother of his baby, who left him in 2016. In revenge, the Kardashian-Jenner family became media predators, slut-shaming her on social media and killing her hit television show, which had already begun filming a second season.”

“After Ms. White obtained July 2017 court orders finding that Rob Kardashian’s revenge porn rant was a form of domestic abuse, and knowing that Ms. White was intent on standing up for her rights, Rob Kardashian and Kylie Jenner hastily filed this lawsuit, which attempts to shame her for having worked in the past as a stripper, a legal profession peopled by actual human beings as deserving of respect as their famous sisters, who perform in sex tapes and pose naked.”

Now Kim and Kourtney KNOW they can’t talk about nobody else’s sex selling past.

The document also says the family used their power to take down Chyna:

“The unwritten rule no one told Ms. White when she started a relationship with Rob Kardashian is: the entire family takes it personally if you leave and will come after you, using their fame, wealth and power to take you down,” the documents continue.

“They will get your television show canceled, they will go after you. They will spread lies about you, they will claim you are a bad mother without evidence. They will even fund a lawsuit about crumbled cookies to get revenge on you leaving a Kardashian.”

“Rob Kardashian and his powerful, vindictive family have done enough damage to Ms. White’s career and professional reputation, which she singlehandedly built from scratch — without the help of a famous last name.”

Chile.  Looks like Kim and co. aren’t the only ones who can play victim.
