It looks as if Kim Kardashian’s soon-to-be ex-husband, Kris Humphries, is not an expectant father after all.

 

Reports surfaced last week saying the NBA player’s ex-girlfriend, Myla Sinanaj, was three months pregnant with his child. But Sinanaj is now denying those rumors.

 

In a Twitter interview with AllWestEverything.com on Tuesday, Sinanaj wrote, “I’m not pregnant.”

 

She says the pregnancy rumors got started after she tweeted “ONE day can’t wait to have a lil boy” and that everyone took it to mean she was expecting. Sinanaj also posted a belly-baring picture of herself wearing shorts and a bikini top on Monday. READ MORE

Actress Gabrielle Union is reportedly aware and it upsets her that the blogs don’t approve of how she got the man she love. The 40-year-old actress has been working hard to revamped her image to be a respected basketball wife. In a recent interview Union said she ignored the “madness” on the blogs because she was in love. All the drama reached a high, when Siohvaughn Funches, Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, filed a lawsuit against her for alienation of affection. The lawsuit was later thrown out of court.

Gabrielle spoke about the malicious bloggers who say she’s only interested in D. Wade’s bank account.

 

Even though Dwyane Wade‘s divorce from Siohvaughn Wade had nothing to do with Gabrielle Union, the actress was still caught up their bitter separation since she was his girlfriend.

 

Instead of lashing out against Siohvaughn for making cheating accusations, Gabrielle Union took the high road, but the entire situation had a detrimental impact on Gabby’s career.

Spike Lee Producing Michael Jackson Documentary

Filmmaker Spike Lee is putting the finishing touches on a documentary about Michael Jackson. The film, which focuses on the late singer’s 1987 album “Bad” and its accompanying world tour, features Lee’s interviews with members of Jackson’s collaborators and tour team as well as interviews with contemporary stars like rapper Kanye West and Sheryl Crow, who was a backup singer on Jackson’s “Bad” tour.

 

Lee says in a statement he’s “a huge fan of Michael Jackson’s” and cares deeply about his legacy.

 

He adds that the project allowed him to uncover “just what made this a huge, important coming of age” in Jackson’s career.

There’s been no announcement of an official release date for Lee’s documentary but it is expected to be released around the same time as the September 18th release of the box set “Bad 25” which will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s “Bad” album. Lee previously directed the clip for Jackson’s posthumous song “This Is It,” released months after the singer’s death in 2009.

This year the Essence festival brought out as many superstars as only they can. The Festival will be shown in a whole different light as the Braxton family Traci, Towanda, Trina, and Tamar, mama Evelyn, and WE TV have teamed up once again. The lovely Tamar Braxton who recently launched her new clothing line (gobuyit.com) has been working hard and recently sold out of all of her t-shirts at the event she did with Toya.

I recently told you the Braxton’s are preparing for Season 4 and Tamar and Vince are doing their own reality show together…which will be very entertaining and shocking.com!

Trina is working on her music and will be hitting the stage soon showing the world that she is not just a beautiful face and her vocals can rival her sisters Toni and Tamar.

Mama Evelyn Braxton also has some big things that shes working Paula Deen better look out I smell a cooking show coming soon… Hint Hint…. LOL   The girls brought out a major crowd and filled the arena at the WE TV stage area as they smiled and greeted all their fans from across the country. One girl broke down in tears when she saw the Braxton’s and told me that she couldn’t believe she was going to have the opportunity to see these women which actually made me feel bad. We some times take our relationships with others for granted. (P.S. that was a venting moment…life lesson learned at Essence.) Shoutout to all the people at WE TV for showing ya boy Freddy O so much love. Here are all the pic’s… READ MORE

Over the weekend, I got the opportunity to kick it with the R&B Divas from what I know will be a great reality show, — because it is founded on a great cause. A premiere date has been set for TV One’s most anticipated series R&B Divas.

The series revolves around R&B singers Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Monifah, Keke Wyatt and Syleena Johnson.

Set to premiere August 20, the show will

“follow them solo, together and in different combinations as they not only fight to get their lives on track but also to pay their good fortune forward. Divorce, parenting, drugs and alcohol, physical abuse and more – these ladies have survived it all and continue to deal with life’s battles each day,”

reports TV One.

“It is their personal mission to help other women in need. If women can learn from their mistakes, it was all worth it.”

Nicci Gilbert said the series is “fearless” and plugged the fact that it will be balanced to empower not destroy.

 

The ladies who are participating in this reality show which I feel would’ve been one of the biggest comebacks of all time had it gone the way Whitney wanted it. Thats right Whitney Houston reportedly played a major role in creating the original layout of the show.

 

Had she still been alive this would have been the show she would have been apart of. The show R&B Divas will be filled with drama but with a positive side showing what these ladies actually go through.

 

The ladies came to the Essence Festival stage to talk about their lives and the ups and downs of the industry and are back to claim their throwns as some of the top R&B Divas. The show is set to air on TV ONE.

 

The ladies ran into Elise Neal who was backstage preparing to show the world her sexy side and meet and greet fans from all across the country. The ladies also came together in a private party to tell Nicci Gilbert Happy Birthday.

I know you all are going to love this show. These ladies have a lot of big things coming up but I’m not share so wait til it airs! Support the show and special thanks to TV ONE for showing me so much love. Check Out all the photos below: READ MORE
