Multihyphenate talent Mr. Chris Classic served as the evening’s host and the architect of the spirits served at this seasonal soirée was none other than Atlanta’s own “The Drinking Coach”, Tiffanie Barriere, who crafted three mood-setting Maker’s cocktails inspired by both the city and Santa Claus. A Black Santa Claus.

In the cellar of The Estate, Maker’s designed a tasting station with informed bartenders who explained the process of creating traditional Maker’s, Maker’s Mark 46, and Maker’s Mark Private Select. The Private Select is especially notable because each bottle is crafted specifically by the store or bar that is lucky enough to carry it. There are over 1,000 flavor-note combinations that can be created with the ingredients used in a bottle of Maker’s Mark. If you truly love brown, this is the way to get down.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Sentenced

A serial snitcher isn’t getting out of jail like he hoped. Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced Wednesday Manhattan to two years in prison as part of a cooperation deal. As previously reported Tekashi testified against fellow members of his former gang Nine Treyway and penned a letter to Judge Paul Engelmayer asking for leniency. It apparently didn’t work however and Judge Engelmayer admitted that while he deserves a “great deal of credit” for his cooperation, 6ix9ine used the Nine Trey gang as his “personal hit squad.”

“You used Nine Trey as a potent means of getting even with your rivals. You claim you “foolishly commingled with members of the gang” – but it’s more than that. The attacks would not have happened without you. Until you joined Nine Trey, the gang did not have an interest in settling scores with rap artists,” Engelmayer said to Hernandez.

“Your choice to join Nine Trey was completely and utterly unnecessary.”

Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, was also sentenced to five years of supervised probation. He has spent the past 13 months in jail which will count toward his sentence.

You can see more of the judge’s eviscerating comments as captured by The Inner City Press below.

As you can imagine social media is on fire with memes and they’re absolutely hilarious.

#RHOA Dennis McKinley Admits That Porsha’s Postpartum Depression Caused Cheating

During Sunday’s episode of #RHOA, Porsha Williams’ fiance Dennis McKinley made a shocking revelation that’s sending fans into a frenzy. As previously reported Porsha’s been seen this season going to therapy after Porsha confirmed that Dennis not only cheated but did so while she was expecting their daughter PJ.

Now while speaking to their therapist, Dennis is admitting that their issues started during Porsha’s pregnancy when their sex life waned and ballooned into a bigger issue when Porsha gave birth and suffered postpartum depression.

“We had a rough pregnancy, all the way from start to finish,” said McKinley. “Sex during pregnancy, it’s nothing that a man wants to do. … And after PJ got here, postpartum was very real. We cried together, like, every night. That’s not a good enough ‘why,’ but that’s the ‘why.’”

He continued: “It was a poor decision and it was a selfish decision. I made a mistake, I cheated. … I’ve done my best to let Porsha know that I love her and I’m remorseful and apologetic. The priority for me is the baby.”

According to Porsha however, cheating is FAR from a mistake—it’s a CHOICE and she broke it down while her therapist looked on.

“A mistake, to me, is taking the wrong exit,” she said. “You don’t make a mistake and set up with someone and cheat. That’s not where he needs to be in order for me to heal and move forward. He needs to be in a place in my eyes where he’s taking full accountability for his actions, period. No matter how it looks and feels. It insults me when he says ‘mistake.’”

“At the end of the day, this is a serious situation. Our daughter is growing up by leaps and bounds every single day. If we’re going to be together for her, we’re going to have to start working on it. … If you’re going to live how you want to live because that’s just what your loins want, we can move on with our coparent life. But if you are really trying to make a commitment over here, that’s what I want to know from your heart.”

She’s exactly right, it is a CHOICE to cheat. Not a mistake.

Dennis then reaffirmed that he doesn’t want to co-parent with Porsha, he wants them to be together.

Dennis has since gotten his wish, Porsha recently confirmed that they reconciled and they’re “re-engaged” with plans to wed next year. On an upcoming episode of RHOA people will see Dennis’ re-proposal to his wife-to-be.

Finally: Papoose Calls Out Joe Budden’s BS

We know giving decent advice is the bare minimum but someone please give Papoose a trophy or at least a medallion in the form of a pair of timberlands. Something!

Last night on the ‘Love and Hip Hop New York’ premiere Papoose squashed Joe Budden’s entire pathological misogynistic act by pointing out his BS upfront. While being in denial about cheating on Cyn Santana, then blaming his fiancée for HIS sneakiness, Papoose broke Budden’s narcissism down in just a few words of advice.

Papoose: One of the things I’m noticing, you’re not acknowledging you was wrong for having that in the phone. You’re supposed to cater to your woman, bro. You proposed for a reason, don’t throw that away so fast.

Joe Budden: Pap, she ran. She left, not me.

Papoose: She left, you know why? That shows that a woman is not gonna tolerate YOU doing her wrong.

Budden: No, it shows that you lack effective communication as an adult.

Papoose: In that case, if you’re saying that bout her, if she looked in your phone and seen that, that shouldn’t have been a surprise.

Boom! Check out the clip.

Fans think Papoose may be the key to defeating Joe Budden and his narcissistic ways!

#WWHL: Bravo Baddies Kenya Moore & Miss Quad Trade Shade—But What Was The REAL Issue?

Kenya Moore & Miss Quad Trade Shade On “Watch What Happens Live”—But What Was The REAL Issue?

Two Bravo stars seemed to be trading shade on live television and social media went CRAZY with speculation. #RHOA’s Kenya Moore and “Married To Medicine’s” Miss Quad were guests on “Watch What Happens Live” last night to dish on their shows.

And during the interview, there seemed to be some awkwardness and animosity coming from Kenya Moore’s way in particular. At one point a clip was shown from the next #RHOA featuring Kenya’s estranged hubby Marc Daly. Quad then put her “Sister Circle” hosting skills to work to ask Kenya about the situation.

“So Kenya, how does that make you feel when you see that your husband doesn’t have your back? And actually, you guys are one, you’re a unit,” Webb addressed Moore.

“Well, I’m going to let Andy ask the questions,” said Kenya. Even though Andy jumped in saying he was going to ask the same thing Webb asked.

Oop!

Later on, Andy noted that viewers were asking why Kenya was “being so shady” to Quad and Kenya noted that there’s a “history” of shade.

Kenya: “That’s going to take too long for me to answer.”

Quad: “You’re very smary, let’s just sum it up real quick. Let’s give the people two words, it doesn’t matter what it is. Give it to them.”

Kenya: “History. She has a little bit of shady history towards me…

Quad: I thought you were saying something in favor of my ex-husband once before…

Kenya: “Oh I love him. Is that a bad thing?”
Kenya claimed that Quad allegedly made a shady comment on WWHL while on the show alongside Sheree Whitfield.

Quad: “If you remember so much, then go ahead and refresh our memory. Well, you’re still holding onto it many years later. I don’t recall. [I’ve] always liked you. So tell me exactly what was said. I’d love to get into it live–the viewers are asking.

Kenya: “We’ve answered!”

WELL DAMN.

During the after-show, Andy said producers watched a clip of Quad and Sheree commenting on Kenya’s estranged mother. After the footage wasn’t played Quad then apologized.

Andy Cohen: “It was the episode where Sheree said something, really kind of, that you took great offense to about your mom. Was what you were upset about that Quad was there and laughing along with Sheree?”

Kenya: “I think it was about my mom not answering the door.”

Quad: “To this day I still do not like that she didn’t answer the door—-so run the beautiful bean footage. RUN IT! RUN IT!”

Kenya: “You threw me some shade…”

Quad: “She’s telling me that she feels offended by it… I receive what she’s saying. I receive that it probably wasn’t a good place for me to say it. I’m not going to say how you should’ve felt, I can’t control that but I can apologize for it, ok? How bout that?”

That was big of Quad.

What do YOU think about Kenya and Quad patching things up??? Whose side were you on???

UCF Fighter Colby Covington Gets His #MAGAJaw Broken By ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ Kamaru Usman, Celebration Ensues

Colby Covington Gets His #MAGAJaw Broken By ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ Kamaru Usman

Oh, what a lovely day.

A Trump-supporting UCF fighter is trending after his jaw was broken by someone from one of those  so-called “s**hole countries.” Colby Covington has openly championed Deranged Dorito, donning MAGA has and tweeting Trump and his cronies thanking them for their support.

It’s his jaw that’s going to need support however after last night’s UFC 245 match at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. Kamaru Usman known as the “Nigerian Nightmare” was defending his welterweight title and won by technical knockout at the 4:10 mark of the fifth round.

Usman gloated about his win afterward—-and so did social media who gladly made #MAGAJaw trend noting that Usman’s powerful fists broke Covington’s jaw.

“I told everyone I would keep it standing and knock him out and that’s exactly what I did,” said Usman.. “He chose not to shoot. I did what I wanted. I knew I was hitting hard to the body; I like hitting him there because it’s soft. I wasn’t worried about hitting him in specific spots, I just wanted to hit him over and over wherever I could.

“He talked a lot going into this, so this was a respect thing,” he added. “I had a responsibility to go in there and teach him a lesson.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYDXq7Bvqiw

As for Covington, he’s, of course, crying foul and claiming that the ref “f***d him.”

Suuuuuuure! He’s also added another statement on Instagram.

Blah, blah, blah—-BYE #MAGAJAW!
