Jeezy Describes Conversation With Jeannie Mai About Her ‘Dark Meat’ Comments

Jeezy Describes Conversation With Jeannie Mai About Her 'Dark Meat' Comments

Jeezy and Jeannie Mai went public with their relationship last year and many women reminded the rapper about the controversial comments The Real talk show host made about her preference for white meat.

“I loved Black guys. For me, dark meat on the side; white keeps me mean and lean. You know? That’s why I married a white man. That’s what I like,” she said in 2014.

Jeannie was married to her now-ex-husband, Freddy Harteis, who she divorced in 2017. “What I’m saying is I really do think Black men are attractive!…When I think about men, I like dark men. I used to date Black men. I think they’re attractive. But when I decided to stick to – because it just kept me happiest – was my man Freddy, who just happens to be White.”

The rapper revealed that she initiated the conversation about her remarks on The Morning Hustle show on Friday. “I’m a tell y’all how real she is. Before we even started dating we had that conversation. When we really talked, she sat me down, she said ‘Listen, it was something that I said and it might’ve gotten taken out of context. I want you to listen to it in its entirety.’ And I did. I think you guys do journalism, people can take what they want. I know her people, I know her family. I ain’t never felt no sense of racism.”  

Jeezy continued saying he has a good judge of character and wouldn’t be with her if it jeopardized his integrity. “She comes from The Bay… She knows E-40 better than me. So, I just think sometimes people look for things in people. But at the same time I’m a good judge of character. I’m not gonna do nothing that’s gonna jeopardize my integrity. She’s so solid. That’s one of the first conversations we had. I was like ‘You different.’”

Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent to Produce ABC Comedy Series Family Affair

There’s no hateration or holleration in this dancerie.

Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent are getting it percolating for an ABC single-camera comedy series called Family Affair.

There’s no word if they’ll also be starring in it but 50 and Mary are serving as executive producers through their respective production companies.

The New York natives already work together on STARZ’s Power Book II: Ghost. The network says the spinoff series drove a 42% spike in sign-ups and viewership on the app in its first week.

Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent are both veterans in the music game and have been expanding their entertainment portfolios in movies and television.

The Hip Hop/Soul singer received two Oscar nods for her portrayal in 2017’s Mudbound. “I didn’t anticipate any of this,” Blige told Deadline in 2018. “I just knew I was part of a very powerful, important film, and I was happy to be a part of it.”

Since then she starred in Umbrella Academy and she recently starred in a horror film called, Body Cam.

Family Affair will be the first comedy that Mary takes on.

Are you here for this collab?

Mo’nique Demands Public Apology From Tyler Perry After Will Smith and Janet Hubert Make Amends

Mo'nique Demands Public Apology From Tyler Perry After Will Smith and Janet Hubert Make Amends

Mo’nique is not taking her heels off of Tyler Perry’s neck, who she recently demanded a public apology from.

She was inspired by HBO Max’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion which we got a chance to see Will Smith and Janet Hubert end their 27-year feud.

“Hats off to Will Smith for apologizing for what he did to Janet Huberts (everybody’s Aunt Viv) career/life when he was young,” she wrote in a Thursday, Nov. 19 Instagram post, adding that he promised to make a public apology to her. “Perhaps Tyler Perry, who has admitted in private that he was wrong will follow suit & be man enough to apologize in public like he promised. We’ll work on Oprah [Winfrey] & Lions Gate a little later.”

The comedian added, “”P.S. Tyler you won E! PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD for being the peoples champ for your body of work. Tell the truth about a women named Mo’Nique who did nothing wrong & be a champion for the individuals who supported your career for years….THE BLACK WOMEN…PLEASE SWIPE TO HEAR TYLER PERRY SAY IT WITH HIS OWN WORDS.”

Monique added an audio recording allegedly of Tyler Perry calling her “brilliantly talented” and admitting that she should “have a lot more happening.”

“I thought for sure that if you had campaigned and won it and played by their rules, what would have happened is in the Netflix deal, you would have gotten millions of dollars, then your career in film would have been much different,” the person on the audio said. “I believe that much in your talent.”

What are your thoughts?

Tisha Campbell Teases ‘Martin’ Reboot

Tisha Campbell Teases Martin Reboot

Martin is arguably one the top tier Black sitcoms from the 1990s.

Tisha Campbell, who famously plays Gina Waters on the show, did an interview with Entertainment Tonight and spoke about the series cultural impact.

“There were so many Black shows going on at the time. What was important was that there were two young African-American people who were in love. Now, we had The Cosby Show representation. But we really [never] had two young people who were having fun, discovering each other, discovering life. I think that is [why] there are so many songs about Martin and Gina.”

The actress talked about her reconciliation with Martin Lawrence after divorcing her ex-husband, Duane Martin, in 2018. “I hadn’t seen him since the last day of the show, and I literally screamed. I was like, ‘I’m so happy to talk to you.’” 

Tisha didn’t dish on the details of their feud but she added, “That will always stay private. And all I know is that at the end of it, we are so good. We are just supportive of one another, supportive of each other’s families. We talked, it’s all good.” 

But she did reveal the cast is “trying to” to push for a reboot. ” It’s so hard to say,” she continued.

Tisha Campbell explained their busy schedules and Tommy’s passing is going to make a reboot difficult.

“One, Tommy’s not here. And the other thing is the schedule. It literally falls down to schedule. Every single one of us, thank God, is still working.” 

She continued, “We made an impact and it was a big thing for us. And I do not take it lightly. I’m still grateful that I could ease and heal people with laughter.”

Missy Elliott Purchased ‘Dream Dress’ for Bride Struggling to Move and Plan Wedding

Missy Elliott Purchased 'Dream Dress' for Bride Struggling to Move and Plan Wedding

Missy Elliott was able to make a North Carolina bride’s dreams come true.

Ireanna Bradshaw took to Twitter to tell her story about her plans to move and get married, but not being able to afford her dream dress. “Im getting Married in March &trying to move into our own place. Excited but overwhelmed,” she tweeted. “I have been saving money; but its still a struggle. I found my dream dress and I want to get it so bad but between saving for the move- i dnt think it will be possible…..”

Bradshaw explained why this moment was so sentimental for her. “I never thought Id find a love like this and never thought someone would want to marry me. With all my previous insecurities- i didnt think i was worthy of love,” she wrote. “Loving myself made me ready for love. I would be so grateful to have some support: anything would help.”

She uploaded a screenshot of the $1,299 dress.

Ireanna probably never imagined that Missy would see her tweet. “Early Congratulations,” Elliott tweeted. “May God Bless you both with an Unbreakable Union and full of Love & Happiness.”

The stunned bride tried to have the wedding of the year and extended an invitation to Missy.

Although the Virginia native didn’t confirm her attendance, she did something that’s even better. “Your Dress is paid for now,” Missy Elliott tweeted back. “I don’t know you but I saw you said the dress of your dreams & figured I would help when I saw you post ya cash app.”

“May Blessings pour on your Beautiful Wedding Day,” she added.

Janet Hubert Reveals She Was Dealing With an Abusive Marriage and Pregnancy When She Exited ‘Fresh Prince’

Janet Hubert Reveals She Was Dealing With an Abusive Marriage and Pregnancy When She Exited 'Fresh Prince'

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast reunited for their 30th anniversary and the WHOLE cast was apart of the special, including both Aunt Vivs.

This is a huge moment not only for the culture but for Will Smith and Janet Hubert’s relationship. The two notoriously feuded behind the scenes of the show and it ultimately resulted in Hubert’s departure.

There were rumors that she was difficult and was bumping heads with Will. But on Thursday fans will get the chance to hear our beloved Aunt Viv explain why she left us.

Showbiz Cheat Sheet saw a screener for the special and reported what we’re all waiting to see. The conversation between Will and Janet.

“Something I would like to clarify is during that third season when I got pregnant, there was a lot of things going on in my life and in Will’s life as well,” Hubert said. “There was some friction because I was pregnant. Home life was not good at all. I was no longer laughing, smiling, joking because there were things that were going on that nobody knew about. The cast had no idea what was going on… What you didn’t realize either was I was going through a lot at home. You didn’t know. Very abusive marriage.”

She said she was offered an unacceptable deal during the third season on top of the problems she had at home.

“They offered me this really bad deal in the third season. They said, ‘You’ve got two months and two weeks of work and you cannot work anywhere else.’ So that meant my salary was cut. I had a new baby and a husband who was out of work. So I said no. I did not accept their offer. I was never fired. So the misconception was always put out there. I was trapped. What could I do? So they said, ‘Okay, then we’re going to recast your role.’ And I said, ‘What can I say?’ I was hurt deeply, deeply.

Sadly, after Janet Hubert left the show things continued to spiral downward. “When I left the show, I had this new baby and no one,” Hubert told Smith. “Family disowned me. Hollywood disowned me. My family said, ‘You’ve ruined our name.’ And, I wasn’t unprofessional on the set. I just stopped talking to everybody because I didn’t know who to trust because I’d been banished. They said it was you who banished me because you were Will. You were a kid. It was hard.”

Will apologized for being insensitive at the time to Janet and explained that he was immature and understands as an adult how hard it was for her. “During that time, her pregnancy, I wasn’t sensitive. I wasn’t perceptive and now that I’ve had three kids, I’ve learned some things that I did not know at the time and I would do things very differently. But I can see where I made the set very difficult for Janet. “I was 21 years old. Everything was a threat to me. Not you, the world. I was so driven by fear and jokes and comedy and all of that. [Now]  I have children. I’ve been divorced and have a second marriage. I can see now the level of pain and the level of struggle that it was for you just to show up every day.”

Hubert added that the Fresh Prince labeling her difficult basically blackballed her. “You know, words can kill,” Hubert said to Smith. “I lost everything. Reputation, everything. Everything. I understand, you were able to move forward but you know those words, calling a Black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death. It’s hard enough being a dark skinned Black woman in this business.”

Will thanked her for giving him a different perspective about their beef and told her how important she is to the show. “First of all, thank you for sharing that with me. I didn’t know that. When I look back now, it’s obvious that you were having a hard time. I felt like you hated me. I could not do a 30 year celebration of this show and not celebrate you, celebrate your contribution to this show, celebrate your contribution to my life. 27 years, I think. I think we were just short of 27 years that we didn’t speak to one another and I’m glad we’re talking again.”

She agreed that it was time that they buried the hatchet.

“I felt it was necessary for us to finally move forward,” Hubert said. “And I’m sorry that I have blasted you to pieces. I have to say, after 27 years being here today and having the conversation that Will and I had together, it’s healing. I didn’t come here to have animosity, I came here to resolve because it’s time.”

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion premieres Thursday (Nov. 19th) on HBO Max.

Ciara and Russell Wilson to Launch Fragrance Inspired by Their Relationship

Ciara and Russell Wilson to Launch Fragrance Inspired by Their Relationship

Ciara and Russell Wilson are the latest power couple to win our hearts. The pair announced the launch of their joint business venture, ​R&C The Fragrance Duo.

“This is a dream come true for the both of us. I’ve been dreaming of creating my own fragrance for years and the chance to introduce our first fragrance together was truly special and meaningful,” Ciara, 35, told People.

“We created this fragrance during one of the toughest times in life and it brought us such joy in the midst of it all. I was also pregnant, and my sense of smell was off the charts, which was an advantage! The experience was very special and memorable and created really cool memories for Russell and I.”

The singer described what it was like testing the fragrances amid the coronavirus lockdown. “You have to find ways to keep it sexy and keep it fun. We couldn’t do date night out like we usually would, but we would have an at-home date night, and we would smell each other’s scents … We would give each other challenges and wear the fragrances at different times of the day on different days and see if we both had the same reaction to the ones we loved.”

The his and hers scent combo will be available for $90 on  randcfragrance.com. A portion of proceeds will be donated to their Why Not You Foundation.

The actor joined the virtual Global Down Syndrome Fundraiser Beautiful Be Yourself fashion show.

“My heart is shattered into a million pieces… my beautiful loving sister Deondra has transitioned…,” Foxx wrote announcing the tragedy. “I say transitioned because she will always be alive… anyone who knew my sis… knew that she was a bright light…”

“I can’t tell you how many times we have had parties at the house where she has got on the dance floor and stolen the show… ,” he continued, before joking, “Even gave her boyfriend @chrisbrownofficial a run for his money…”

“Well I know she is in heaven now dancing with her wings on…tho my pain is unbelievable I smile when I think of all of the great memories that she left me… my family… and her friends… from dancing in the blame it video… to Dancing on the Grammys… And becoming The ambassador to @globaldownsyndrome… from sliding down my stairs with a grin as wide as the rio grand… to serenading us with all of her music…,” Foxx wrote.

“Deondra you have left A hole in my heart… but I will fill it with all of the memories that you gave me,” he shared. “I love you with every ounce of me… our family is shattered but we will put the pieces back together with your love… and y’all please keep my family in your prayers… 💔💔💔.”
