SAY WHAT NOW?: Has Jennifer Williams Signed on to Return to Basketball Wives Too?

It looks like Tami Roman may have just gotten her wish, as Basketball Wives veteran Jennifer Williams has officially returned to the series.

The reality star has already “signed her contract and already started filming” for Season 6, according to TheJasmineBrand.

The 42-year-old beauty was an original cast member of the series, introducing herself as the wife of former New Jersey Nets player, Eric Williams. She also happened to be best friends with Evelyn Lozada, a relationship that came crashing down when Jen didn’t support her relationship with now ex-husband, Chad Ochocinco.

Last week, fellow BBW star Tami claimed production wanted to bring the Jersey girl back for the entire season, but Evelyn blocked the move by telling producers she’d walk if they hired her frenemy. Sources are now backing up those claims, though Evelyn has denied it.

“Evelyn and Jennifer haven’t spoken in years and they fell-out publicly. Evelyn did NOT want Jennifer back on the show.”

“Evelyn has some power within the show and told producers that it was either her or Jennifer. Initially, they wanted Evelyn back so much, that they agreed.”

Apparently, their years-long feud is what prompted producers to bring Jen back, believing she plans to confront the mother of two towards the end of the season.

Are you ready for Jennifer Williams to make her Basketball Wives return?

PETTY WITH AGE: Aretha Franklin Is Still Mad at Dionne Warwick for Something that Happened at Whitney Houston’s Funeral…Five Years Ago!

One thing you should never do is say that Aretha Franklin is the late Whitney Houston’s godmother, because it’s not true. Dionne Warwick made that mistake at Houston’s funeral five years ago and Aretha is still not cool with her. In fact, she’s still pissed enough to send Associated Press a “lengthy fax” about it in 2017…

“She blatantly lied on me … fully well knowing what she was doing,” Aretha Franklin over the phone to AP.

At the funeral, Warwick tried to introduce Aretha, but after realizing she wasn’t there (Aretha was suffering from swollen feet), the legend egregiously said, “She loves Whitney as if she were born to her. She is her godmother.” Whitney’s mother Cissy corrected the falsehood in the following days, but Aretha elected to stay silent because there had “been so much going on around her (Houston), around the service, around the drugs, around her and Bobby (Brown) supposed to be fighting, I didn’t want to add anything to that and I didn’t want to be a part of that.”

“But they both performed at Tribeca’s premiere of Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives,” you say. “Surely, they must at least be on good terms.” Yes, but not quite: They performed at the same show, but Aretha still wasn’t having it with Warwick.

“She said, ‘Give me a hug.’ I said, ‘Oh hell no. You couldn’t be serious,’” Franklin said. For her part, Warwick stated she “will not dignify a response to the statement made by Aretha Franklin.”

Fans of the Queen of Soul know Franklin does not fake courtesy when she doesn’t like you…just ask Patti LaBelle.

AIN’T THAT SWEET: Rapper 2 Chainz Purchases his Mother a Brand New Home

Stuntin’ with ridiculous amounts of federal notes, foreign whips and beautiful women is the norm for plenty of rappers (more times than not their bank accounts don’t match, but that’s for another time). However, 2 Chainz took his own humble bragging to a more righteous level by revealing that he brought his a mother a new house.

To be clear, the Hair Weave Killer had already brought his momma a new house before, this is the re-up.

“So I bought my moms a new house today for no reason , well it is a reason , she my momma ! I Bought her a house 2012 before I knew I was gone be one of the biggest artists out here …,,still!!! I love you mom you deserve it !,” wrote 2 Chainz in a caption for a loving message from his auntie, congratulating him on the power move.

Is Auntie going to get a crib next? At least a nice condo?

Props to 2 Chainz for building wealth and keeping it in the family. #message

MUST BE NICE: Beyoncé and Jay Z reportedly offer $120M for Bel Air mansion!

Beyoncé and Jay Z might finally be buying a home in Los Angeles . The couple, who is expecting twins, has apparently made a $120-million offer on a Bel Air spec house, reports Page Six. The property has been listed for sale off-market with an asking price of $135 million.

Located near Bel Air’s East Gate, the property sits on a quiet cul de sac. The eight-bedroom estate counts a 15-car garage, bulletproof windows, and four pools among its luxurious amenities, Page Six says.

The six-structure compound measures about 30,000 square feet in total, spread across 1.56 acres, property records show.

The estate last changed hands in 2013 for $15 million, according to Redfin. It was recently rebuilt from the ground up by Irish firm McKillen Developments.

An old promotional site for the property (since taken down) displays photos of the house, and it looks sleek and minimal with a lavish interior. A source told Page Six that, “no expense was spared in design or execution” of the estate.

It was designed by noted spec mansion builder Paul McClean. McClean is also designing a $500-million spec mansion in Bel Air that will measure more than 100,000 square feet and include four pools, a 30-car garage, and its own casino.

Beyoncé and Jay Z have kept a home in LA for years, but have yet to buy property. That’s not for lack of trying. It was rumored that they were outbid by Minecraft creator Markus Persson for an over-the-top mansion described in its own listing as “an overwhelming sensory experience.” (Persson’s winning bid was $70 million.)

It was also reported that fashion designer Tom Ford outbid the pair last year for a Beverly Hills mansion once owned by Albert Broccoli, who rose to fame as the producer of James Bond films.

Maybe the third time is the charm for the couple? If their $120-million offer is accepted, it would set a new record for the most expensive home sale in Los Angeles County history.

PRISON BAE: Jeremy Meeks Deported While Trying to Enter the UK Due to His Past

A male model widely known on the internet as the “hot felon” has been deported from the UK after an eight-hour detainment at Heathrow Airport .

Jeremy Meeks, whose mugshot went viral back in 2014 after he was arrested on weapon charges, was detained when he flew into London and wasn’t allowed to leave the airport at all.

The 32-year-old was questioned for four hours, strip-searched, fingerprinted and eventually put back on a plane to LA after a total of eight hours, his manager claimed.

Jim Jordan, who had been travelling with Mr Meeks and his wife Melissa, claimed: “He wasn’t arrested but they deported him out of the country. They wouldn’t let him come into the country. He is really upset. He was police-escorted onto the plane.”

Having flown to London from Los Angeles, Mr Jordan and Meeks got to customs when Meeks was ordered into a different section.

“They stamped my passport. They looked at Jeremy’s passport and they said, could you guys go sit over there. So they put us in this sectioned off section and we were sitting there for an over an hour,” he recalled.

“Then they came to me and asked if I could go through customs without Jeremy.”

ccording to Jim, he and his wife had to sit at an airport restaurant for hours without hearing what was happening to Mr Meeks, who was reportedly carrying all the correct paperwork including a work visa and letter from his parole officer.

“Jeremy said [border agents] did a four-hour interrogation, they took a s**t-ton of pictures of him,” the manager went on.

They strip-searched him, they fingerprinted him. They locked him in a small room for hours. They took his passport from him, they didn’t give him his passport back.

“They basically said ‘you cannot come into the UK’ with no explanation.”

Meeks had been flying to the UK to celebrate at the launch party of Man About Town magazine this Thursday, as he is the new cover star.

His manager described it as a “setback” but said he hoped this wouldn’t put Meeks off his new life.

SCHOOLIN’ LIFE: Beyoncé Celebrates ‘Lemonade’ Anniversary by Announcing the ‘Formation Scholars’ Scholarship Award for Young Women!

In honor of the one-year anniversary album Lemonade, Beyoncé has launched a scholarship program aimed towards young women to follow their passions and dreams through education.

Queen Bey announced the Formation Scholars awards on April 24, marking the very day Lemonade was released last year (Time flys, right?). There will be four scholarships to be awarded in the 2017-2018 school year, allowing students to pursue and focus their ambitions in the arts and humanities. “To encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious, and confident,” are the many criteria Bey is looking for in a scholar.

The scholarships are working with four different colleges — Berklee College of Music, Howard University, Parsons School of Design, and Spelman College to find nominees for the prestigious award. One student from each school will then be selected for the scholarship as long as their study of focus is in creative arts, music, literature, or African-American area of studies.

Lemonade embodies the very vision of strong women through literature, culture and music — the perfect example of inspiring young girls to pursue their own interest in the arts.

To find out more information on the application check directly with the participating colleges.

SPEAK UP & SPEAK OUT: Tameka “Tiny” Harris Sets the Record Straight On Her Divorce with T.I. & Side Chick Bernice Burgos Beef

Don’t let the surgically faked blue eyes fool you, Tameka “Tiny” Harris still keeps it all the way real. The singer/reality star recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and did not hold back when discussing her divorce with T.I. Harris or his alleged side-chick.

Tiny sat on Wendy’s purple couch on Thursday (Apr. 20) to promote the sixth and final season of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle and nothing was off limits. Though she conceded reality TV may have put a “little strain” on her marriage because “it keeps people in your business,” she made it clear that infidelity and lack of trust were key factors in her decision to file for divorce.

She also stated they were NOT in an open marriage.

“No. We don’t have anything now. It’s not an agreement. No. We just were married and we did what we wanted to do.”

Messy Wendy had to ask about Bernice Burgos, the woman who is rumored to have come between T.I. and Tiny and has also been in a nasty social media feud with Tiny. “Who is this girl?” Wendy asked as a picture of Berenice was plastered behind the two.

“She’s somebody that comes in and… you know, there’s nothing to it, what he [T.I.] does, you know?” Tiny shrugged off. She also added that the Bernice and T.I. are not living together, a rumor that has also been swirling.

“No. He’s not even with her, first of all, and she had nothing to do with whatever was going on with us before, anyway. We were already going through whatever we were going through. She just came in the picture after I had filed for divorce.”

Tiny also addressed the social media beef the two have had over the last few weeks.

“The only problem I had with her was…somebody made a comment about her on my page. I said what I said. She replied. That’s cool, but then you come back with another video speaking about my marriage. That’s a no no. And then come back with the final video singing my song, and I’m feeling like, ‘OK, now you keep coming.’

I stepped to him like, ‘Don’t she know her place? She’s supposed to be quiet.’ Every woman that’s not the one knows that you’re supposed to be quiet.”

It’s no secret what T.I. was doing throughout their 6-year marriage (and 15-year relationship), in fact, he recently admitted he couldn’t be the “thoughtful” husband he should be due to his ways.

However, Tiny has been rumored to have her fun as well, most notably with Floyd Mayweather. But she denied anything went down between them at that infamous Mariah Carey Halloween party.

Tiny: I wasn’t up on him, Wendy! Actually, I was already dancing and we’re friends. It’s never been anything extra with me and Floyd. I mean, he’s a nice looking man, but it’s never been anything other than a friendship, honestly.

Wendy: Why you in Vegas all up on Floyd Mayweather’s crotch?

Tiny: Well, first of all, I was in LA. I was at somebody else’s party. I was at Mariah [Carey’s] party. I wasn’t at Floyd’s event, and honestly, if [T.I.] was doing the right thing, I wouldn’t have been at Mariah’s party, OK?

Tiny filed for divorce in December after six years of marriage. They have three children together, including 1-year-old Heiress. They also have four step-children between them.

IT’S THE ROC!: Lil Wayne Clarifies His Roc Nation Allegiance: “Jay Z’s Helping Me Out Any Way He Can!” (WATCH)

Lil Wayne has been embroiled in a war with Cash Money CEO and his one-time father figure Bryan “Birdman” Williams for who knows how long. Tunechi made the feud public in December of 2014 when he claimed on Twitter that he wanted off the label and the beef has played out publicly ever since.

Amid the many swirling rumors, Weezy has aligned himself with Jay Z. At a recent concert, Wayne told the crowd “It’s the Roc,” with many assuming he was announcing a deal with Hov’s Roc Nation.

In an appearance on FS1’s Undisputed, Lil Wayne is asked to clarify the situation with host Skip Bayless.

“Jay’s a good guy, man,” Tunechi said. “It was nothing but a simple thing, just friend to friend, ‘I just wanna help you.’ Simply, that’s all it was. ‘I just wanna help you, man, in any way I can.’ Right now, he’s just gonna help me in any way he can. That’s just what it is.”

Wayne says that this continued partnership does not signify that he has officially left Cash Money.

“We still working on that,” he admitted. “That’s a situation.”

I don't even know where to start of how amazing the concert was last night!! #youngmoney #weezy #lilwayne #sru #rocnation

A post shared by Cameron Waters (@cameron_waters22) on

This isn’t the first time Wayne-Roc Nation rumors have flown. The Young Money leader signed with Jay Z’s TIDAL back in 2015, although his statement that he “just signed a deal with my muthafuckin’ idol Jay Z” had many drawing the conclusion that he signed a record deal with Roc Nation.

At another point in time, Wayne said he was offered a deal with Roc-A-Fella, the parent company of Roc Nation, earlier in his career for a reported $175,000.

As he continues to spar with Birdman, Weezy has found other allies in Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince and his son. Check out Wayne speaking on the Roc situation below:
