Is Tahiry Jose Shooting Her Shot At Ex Joe Budden?

Joe Budden has been through his fair share of relationship woes throughout his time in the entertainment industry–but it finally seemed like he found his match after settling down with fellow Love & Hip Hop star Cyn Santana.

After going half on a baby and proposing at a live episode of his podcast back in December, the two ended up breaking things off only a few months later for reasons that haven’t yet been explained. In the months since the mysterious break-up, Budden has seemed mostly in good spirits while sprinkling in some jokes about his sad boy summer. All the while, it looks like he’s got another prospect waiting for him in the wing.

On Saturday, Budden posted a series of pictures on his Instagram stories: the first being G Herbo and Ari booed up in the pool with the caption, “summer in my mind,” followed by a lonely-looking flick of Joe by himself that reads, “summer in real life.”

The Shade Room, doing what The Shade Room does, went on to post the screenshots from his story onto their page–and that’s when the comment section got interesting.

Tahiry Jose, another fellow Love & Hip Hop star and former flame of the retired New Jersey rapper, commented on the screenshots saying, “Joe know what time it is! Lmao.”

*Cue fans going wild in the comment section*

What time Tahiry is actually referring to is still unclear, but either way, we see her checking up on her old, newly single boo thang.

Unfortunately for Ms. Jose, though, it looks like Joe isn’t picking up whatever she’s putting down. When one fan tweeted the podcast host urging him, “please don’t go backwards” to his former relationship, he replied, “forward motion.”

And there you have it. Even though many Love & Hip Hop fans constantly claim that Tahiry will always be the one for Joe, the man himself has a different story.

Victim’s Sons Beat Up Convicted Killer

A video’s gone viral of two sons beating up the man who killed their mother. On Thursday the sentencing hearing for a man convicted of killing an Ohio woman erupted in chaos when the victim’s two sons attacked the handcuffed defendant, Dale Williams, inside the courtroom.

Williams, 62, was on hand for sentencing for the murder of his ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth Pledger Stewart, 46. While Pledger Stewart’s daughter was giving her victim impact statement, however, the woman’s two sons attacked the convicted killer.

Both men managed to get to Williams and punched him before being detained.

“He killed my mother, man,” said one of the sons. “That was my mama! She took care of me, bro, when nobody else did.”

WKBN reports that Williams admitted to killing Pledger Stewart after waiting for her for more than 45 minutes for her to drive by him on her way to work so he could cut her off and shoot her.

Both sons will spend 30 days in jail for contempt of court.

Seems like it was worth it to us.

#MeToo: Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals She Was Harassed On Set By A “Very Big Movie Star”

Sarah Jessica Parker Says She Was Harassed by A Big Movie Star On Set

Sadly, even the biggest stars in the industry are subject to power imbalances and harassment in the workplace. Sarah Jessica Parker revealed recently that she was harassed by a “very, very big movie star” during a discussion of the #MeToo movement on an episode of NPR’s Fresh Air.

The actress did not name who the person was or give away the project, but she wanted to make it clear that industry problems with harassment exist on all levels. She admitted that recent events forced her to reevaluate the way she had been treated throughout her career.

“It really wasn’t, I would say, until about six or eight months ago that I started recognizing countless experiences of men behaving poorly, inappropriately, and all the ways that I had made it possible to keep coming to work or to remain on set, or to simply … just push it down, push it away, find a little space for it and move on,” she told host Terry Gross.

The Sex and the City star also noted that a perceived power imbalance between herself and the unnamed star kept her quiet about his harassment for a really long time. Luckily, she eventually decided that she had enough and explained the situation to her agent. Her agent ended up threatening the right people, saying that Parker would walk if the harassment continued, and that’s when the environment changed immediately.

“I didn’t have to listen to jokes about me or my figure or what people thought they could talk me into doing,” she said. “That stopped.” Sarah Jessica Parker also admitted that it can be difficult, even for a star of her caliber, to come forward.  “I didn’t feel as powerful as the man who was behaving inappropriately, which … strikes me as just stunning to say out loud because there were plenty of occasions where it was happening and I was in a different position and I was as powerful.”

Mother of Nipsey Hussle’s Daughter Claims His Family Has Cut Her Off Since His Passing

According to The Blast, the mother of Nipsey Hussle‘s 10-year-old daughter claims his family has kicked her out of the apartment he used to rent for her and cut all ties with her.

Tanisha Foster filed a motion in the guardianship case of her daughter, Emani Asghedom. She disputing the joint guardianship petition filed by Nipsey’s immediate family.

“I strongly oppose both of the petitions filed by Samantha Alexandria Smith, Samiel Asghedom and Angelique Smith,” Foster says. “I am the other of Emani Asghedom and there is no good reason my rights as her mother should be taken away from me, or otherwise reduced as her mother.”

Foster claims she and Nipsey “always shared the responsibility of parenting Emani.”

Since his murder, she has “had to depend on the goodwill of family and friends for my food, clothing, shelter and transportation. Ermias had always provided for these needs up until his date of death.”

She says the Nip “also gave me substantial sums of cash that I used for the benefit of Emani and myself.”

But all that has since been cut off after his passing and his family has decided to cut ties with Foster in every aspect.

R. Kelly’s Inner Circle Were The Ones Responsible For Him Reportedly Facing Federal Charges

According to TMZ, R. Kelly investigators now have over 20 tapes of the singer having sex with minors in their possession, and it was his own inner circle who handed them over to the authorities.

Gerald Griggs, the attorney who is representing the family of Jocelyn Savage, reportedly stated that the tapes show multiple victims of sexual abuse and that many of them were confirmed to be underage at the time of the filming.

R. Kelly was arrested earlier this week on 13 counts of federal sex crimes, including four counts of producing and two counts of receiving child pornography. Kelly is also facing other counts for racketeering, violation of the Mann Act, and obstruction of justice. Kelly is also facing 11 other sex abuse charges in Cook County relating to his alleged abuse of Jerhonda Pace.

It might be over with for R. Kelly.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said in a statement:

“Ms. Sadie was a tireless advocate of peace..Ms. Sadie is a treasure to our community, she will be missed by BRPD and her loss will be felt in the community she served…Our detectives are working diligently to bring the person or persons responsible for this heinous act to justice.”

Bossip Be Trippin’: Majestic Meemaws, Luxurious Linens & Big Bluetooth Energy–Did Essence Fest 25 Live Up To The Hype?

Summer Of OWN Essence Fest Cocktail Party

Bossip Be Trippin: Essence Fest 25

Hey beautiful people, it’s your wanderlusty buddy-pal Alejandro with another White Diamond-splashed Essence Fest adventure to recap. And yes, there are taupe kitten heels, bedazzled bodysuits, snazzy toe rings, stretchy floral fabrics, young aunties in polka dot hot pants and big Bluetooth energy (courtesy of Pop-Pop Frankie Beverly) sprinkled into this journey.

Sounds amazing, I know, so let’s get into it. But first–I have to thank Ford for loaning me a 2019 Ford F-150 Limited (basically an Autobot) for the trip. I’ll call him Optimus Jr. and he’s simply incredible with the best fuel mileage of any new-age truck.

I drove from Atlanta to NOLA (470 miles) without stopping for gas and STILL had 100 miles left to E. It’s absolutely life-changing (if you have an older vehicle like myself) with a planet-shaking sound system, dependable navigation interface, spacious interior (sooo much backseat space for luggage unlike most pickup trucks), MOONROOF, self-parallel parking (yes, you read that right) and buttery smooth leather seats.

This isn’t a commercial (I promise) but I told them I would let yall know how impressive the F-150 is. My only (small) complaint is the $69 is takes to fill up. STRESSFUL. But yea, I’m a fan and recommend you take one for a spin someday.

Now, back to Essence Fest that attracted 1.7 billion people (I counted) to the (not) Big (enough) Easy this year for some good ‘ole fashioned day drinking shenanigans in wig-melting, eyebrow-sizzling heat.

At one point, it was 104° outside but that didn’t stop anyone from attending an impressive array of events and brunches and lunches and dinners and pop-ups and soirées and kickbacks and meet & greets this year. There were SO MANY EVENTS. Almost too many. And these were my faves:

Spotify’s star-studded House of Are & Be was a VIBE with well-moisturized somebodies and the most IG-friendly photo booth experience at the festival. Look at our Digital Comms Director Lexi killin’ it.

Yep, EVERYBODY was there.

Ava Duvernay, Gayle King & more stopped by the exclusive Summer Of OWN Essence Cocktail Party at Legacy Kitchen for great vibes, impossible amounts of food (IT WAS LITERALLY A FEAST–THANKS OPRAH!) and all the Dove products you could stuff into your luggage. It was quite the event.

Universal Pictures threw a swanky First Look soirée where they showed the first 12 minutes of soon-to-be movie of moment “Queen & Slim.” It looks incredible. No, seriously.

Brandy stunned at AT&T’s extravagant Dream In Black brunch (that also celebrated Ava Duvernay and Zendaya). She looked and sounded AMAZING.

Starz always has great Essence Fest events and this year’s Lounge was another win.

The magnificent Motown Manor had tarot card readings, henna painting, celebrity MUAs for guests, braid adorning, open bar and a live performance/intimate chat with BJ the Chicago Kid. Very dope.

Shea butter baby Ari Lennox gave us a classic moment at Airbnb’s elegant A Woman’s Path To Power event. THEY HAD DELICIOUS MINI-SHRIMP PO’BOYS.

HBO’s intimate Black Ladies in Comedy brunch celebrated Insecure’s Natasha Rothwell (Supervising Producer & Actress), A Black Lady Sketch Show‘s Dime Davis (Director) and Lauren Ashley Smith (Head Writer) who chatted about Blackness in very white Hollywood spaces. Great convo and even better food.

Ford paints the future proud at Essence Fest

Our good friends at Ford painted the future proud with a culturally delicious Ride & Drive experience combining art, food and fellowship.

Disney’s preview brunch for “The Lion King” and several other future box office smashes from “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” to “Frozen 2” was, well, magical.

Forever First Lady Michelle Obama and Final Boss auntie MJB set the tone for Pop-Pop Frankie to unleash big bluetooth energy during a dazzling performance that closed out Essence Fest with the biggest of bangs.

Overall, I really enjoyed Essence Fest 25 and LOVE that it lived up to the hype. Special thanks to Team Epiphany for the exclusive invites, Legacy Kitchen‘s wonderful staff who blessed us with fresh (and delicious) beignets, Ford, HBO, AT&T, BET, OWN, Disney, McDonald’s, Coca Cola, Universal and Motown.

Thanks for reading and follow my unsupervised shenanigans on IG (@alejandro_nigelsias). See ya next time!
