Kelly Rowland Is A Favorite for Gladys Knight Biopic

By: Lauren Sims

A few years ago, Gladys Knight told a few different mediums that she would love for Kelly Rowland to play the Grammy award winning legend if she were to write, produce, and film her biopic. Knight told Instagram,

“You guys remember when I asked you all who you’d like to see play the role of Gladys Knight in my biopic? Well… Here’s what I think:) @kellyrowland”

Later, in an interview with CBS she proceeded in expressing her interest in the former Destiny’s Child member to be casted in her bipoic saying,

“I like Kelly Rowland,” Gladys said. “We don’t know her as an actress but there’s something about her and her spirit that kind of reflects with me.”

Hopefully, she has considered her offer and that will be in the making soon. For now, the beautiful Kelly Rowland has not said anything about a potential biopic project going underway.

Written by. Chalise Macklin

Tamar Braxton has made headlines for weeks; after news surfaced she would not return to The Real for season 3.

Braxton explained that her husband, Vince Herbert, called The Real about glam for the Essence festival and was informed she was no longer a part of the panel.

the realTamar said, “For this to come out of the blue, this was astonishing to be honest.”

She goes on to say she did not reach out for an explanation for why she was let go, but Vince did as well as her agent and lawyer. According to Braxton, no one has contacted her. Tamar said it still bothers her that she doesn’t know why she was fired. But fans are not convinced she was clueless. They took to twitter during the interview posting comments of disbelief.

Despite the situation, she remains positive.

“This is not a setback, it’s a setup. You have to speak positivity over your life and move forward,” said Tamar.

Moving forward is exactly what she is doing. Later in the show, Harvey announced that he signed Tamar to his company to produce a talk show.

“We are proud to announce that 112th Street Productions…my production company, East 112th Production has just signed Tamar Braxton to produce a talk show, TV series with Tamar Braxton,” said the talk show host.

CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD - "Anthony Anderson vs Toni Braxton and Monica Potter vs Curtis Stone" - The series premiere of "Celebrity Family Feud" will feature actor Anthony Anderson's ("black-ish") family vs. 7-time Grammy Award-winning artist Toni Braxton and her sisters; and in a separate game, family members from Australian celebrity chef Curtis Stone and actress Monica Potter will spar off against each other to win money for a charity of their choice.

The two didn’t reveal any more details about the upcoming show, but the vagueness surely will  build up anticipation.

Tamar’s reaction to being fired from The Real doesn’t end on Harvey’s radio show. Her reaction was captured by the camera crew of Braxton Family Values and will be aired tonight. The episode will pick up two hours after she received the news and how her sisters supported her through the tough time.

A lot has happened to Tamar in the last year, including a health scare. It seems Tamar has landed on her feet. The breakout star of Braxton Family Values journey toward superstardom continues on.

 

KeKe Palmer Addresses “The Real” Rumors

Written by. Chalise Macklin

Keke Palmer is booked. After making history as the youngest talk show host (Just KeKe) to date, she will reprise the role. Rumors have been swirling on several media outlets that she will replace Tamar Braxton on The Real. The spot is vacant after the show put out a joint statement that Braxton will not return for the 3rd season.

The “Scream Queens” star is allegedly in the running to join Tamara Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Bailon at the round table. An executive of the show worked with Keke last year on a pilot and reportedly thinks she is a good fit. The news comes on the heels of Warner Brothers releasing a statement that they had not made a decision on whether or not they would proceed with the remaining four women or add an additional host to the panel.

kp1Fans of Palmer seem to be in support of her joining the cast. Some fans posted comments on social media stating she would bring a younger and fresh perspective to the panel; similar to what Raven Symone did on The View.

The Real has yet to confirm or deny reports that Keke will be filling Tamar’s seat. KeKe took to social media to dismiss the rumors stating she will not host The Real, but she will continue to host her talk show.

Baby Alert! Wale and Chloe Jourdan are Having a Girl!

By: Lauren Sims

Talk about Baby Fever! It’s always a joy and a blessing to know that new life is coming into the world, and making families whole. This week Wale’s girlfriend’s sister posted pictures of the mommy-to-be on Instagram, complimenting how awesome her sister looked and how gracefully she’s handled her pregnancy. Earlier this year, Wale confessed a few issues that he’s been dealing with in life a career such as his battle with depression, substance abuse, and the tragic loss of the couple’s first child. He sat with MTV News and explained the pace he was in when they experienced that tragic loss saying, “You get to a level, to a place in your life, where you’re ready for stuff like that,” he said. “I’ve accomplished a lot at a young age and I was ready for that peace. I’m mentally prepared for it. I’ve got so many friends with kids and I see the transformation it does for them.”

According to multiple media sources, the couple is expected to be delivering the new bundle of joy sometime in July. I’m sure that after their time of darkness and pain, this baby will be, and probably already is, the light at the end of the tunnel.

Although we haven’t heard much from the young star in about a decade, she hasn’t given up on her dream of becoming one of the top names in hip hop. Bianca Bonnie is doing more than just changing her name; she will be going on tour throughout the month of July this year for her Birthday Tour.
