NJ Dad Jumps From Bridge With His 2 Children

Police say it's a miracle how two young boys survived a 100-foot fall off a bridge after their father took them over the side in an attempted murder-suicide in New Jersey Monday night, according to news reports. 

The father, identified as John Spincken, 37, of Pequannock, plunged off the Wanaque Bridge on I-287. His 1-and 3-year-old sons somehow lived.

The boys were found in an area with thick brush and trees near the Wanaque River. Police believe the forest-like terrain helped cushion the impact of their fall.

Both suffered concussions and one has a bruised lung, but they're expected to be fine. 

A high fence is supposed to prevent people from being able to jump over the side of the bridge, but police said Spincken found a way around it.

The father was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tiny Says She Wasn't Forced To Take Photo With Floyd Mayweather: "Mariah Didn't Make Me"

Over the weekend, Tiny Harris attended Mariah Carey's Halloween party and online peeps slammed her for supposedly betraying her boo, T.I. 
Tiny was seen in a photo alongside Floyd Mayweather. The boxing champ has had some beef with rapper T.I. since their 2014 brawl outside of Fatburger in Las Vegas. 
Media outlets started speculating that Tiny was "forced" to take this photo with Mariah after Tiny said on video that she only agreed to take the photo because Mariah asked her to. 
"Mariah and them were taking pictures and she asked me, 'Tiny come take this picture with me,'" she said in the video. 
"And I'm not going to tell her no and make a big scene. I just took the picture and kept it moving." 
Tiny has since had a change of tune and decided to post more about this photo along with a statement on her Instagram page ... (yes, because it's really that serious, lol):
Do you think Tiny should've declined taking any photos with Floyd knowing her hubby isn't the biggest fan of his?

Jay-Z To Headline Ohio Concert In Support Of Hillary Clinton

Jay-Z will show his support for Hillary Clinton

The rapper will headline a concert for Hillary Clinton in Cleveland before Election Day (Nov. 8), as BuzzFeed News first reported. 

The event is part of an ongoing series of concerts that aim to motivate young black voters to turn out for Clinton the way they turned out for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.
Clinton's campaign has also enlisted help from other celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, John Legend and others to engage young voters.
Well, with Jay-Z also comes his wife Beyonce (who supports Hillary as well) ... I'm sure the BeyHive will get in formation and follow their lead.

Kim Kardashian Discusses What Her Talent Really Is On '60 Minutes'

Post her Paris robbery, Kim Kardashian has now opened up about her life in the public eye as she sat down for an interview with correspondent Bill Whitaker on 60 Minutes. 

In the interview, which aired Sunday night, Kim credits her fame and her "talent" to social media and how she turned her personality into a full on money making business. 

"What's your talent?" Whitaker asked Kardashian. 

"It is a talent to have a brand that’s really successful off of getting people to like you for being you," she replies. "So I have to think that involves some type of talent, you know?"

Kardashian also claimed her fame couldn't exist in this way if it wasn't for her online presence.

"I totally attribute my career to social media," she said.

Can't even hate... a lot of talentless people wish they could grow their brand like Kim Kardashian did.

Michael Ealy Joins The Cast Of 'Being Mary Jane'

Michael Ealy will join the Being Mary Jane cast for season 4!

According to Deadline, Ealy will join the show as Justin Talbot, a new producer of Great Day USA and the man who got Mary Jane fired from CNN. 

Oooooh, this is going to be interesting!

Ealy, who currently stars on ABC's series Secrets and Lies (another excellent show!), was considering multiple feature offers for next year and says he was approached directly by his friend Gabrielle Union to consider taking on the role, Deadline reports.

“I had turned down several network offers, as I really was not interested in doing another show at the time, but because Gabrielle is a friend, I told her that I’d seriously think about and talk with my team. At the end of the day, I felt like we all have a social responsibility to help elevate material with people of color in any way that we can, and if there was an opportunity for me to help my friend and the cultural perceptions of our work, then I would do my part.”

As previously posted, MJ (Gabrielle Union) will take on New York City in the new BMJ season which premieres in January.

Lena Dunham Addresses The Kim Kardashian Robbery, Her Odell Beckham Jr. Comments & The Final Season Of 'Girls'

The sixth and final season of Girls recently wrapped up filming and will premiere sometime in 2017!

Lena Dunham interviewed with the Power 105.1 morning hosts earlier where she talked about a variety of topics, ranging from the recent Kim Kardashian robbery, her hit show Girls and she even talked about Odell Beckham Jr. 

Lena once accused Odell Beckham Jr. for giving her the cold shoulder and not checking her out while sitting next to her at the Met Gala. Well, after she landed herself in a bunch of controversy over that, Lena apologized and now she's speaking out about it again. 

"I was in my own head. It was a great lesson to me in how your humor can be misconstrued…In the written word, it did not translate," Dunham admitted.
"I was at the Met Ball and feeling super self-conscious," she recalled seeing celebs like BeyonceGigi Hadid and Bella Hadid

"I was sitting there and had this whole projected thought process of like, 'Odell doesn't want to be sitting next to me. He doesn't want to talk to me. He thinks I'm garbage. He thinks I look like a boy.' I thought all of that was coming across, and it seemed like I was actually accusing him of some type of misogyny."

Lena also spoke out about the recent Kim Kardashian robbery and the negative backlash Kim has received on social media from it. 

"What I really hate about this Kim thing is that people are feeling so much license to make jokes, and it's like, that's a human being," she explained. "She may have put her life on display in this specific way, and you may not agree with everything she does, but that is a woman and a mother and a daughter who just went through something so heinous. So my heart is with Kim."
When asked about filming the final season of Girls, Lena revealed: 

"That last night I was weeping like a mother bleeping baby. I couldn't believe it," she admitted. "Just because it's been my whole twenties. I started writing the show when I was 23 and I'm 30 now. That's my family, those are my best friends, so it felt like this crazy loss."

She continued, "I woke up the next day, and I was like, 'What do I even do with myself? Who am I? What do I do when I'm not on this television show?'"

Still, she knows ending the show was for the best.

"Everyone has passions, and I want to let them grow and develop," she said. "I never wanted to become that show where everyone's like, 'Yeah, I'm just going to my day job.'  We have had so much love for it every day that we've done it, and I wanted us to go out with that same passion and connection."

She continued, "At the end, we all cried and we all hugged. We were all like, 'You're my sister.' Give it three more years and we would have been like, 'Don't ever f--king look at me again.'"

Check out the full interview below:
Updated! Soulja Boy Quits 'Love & Hop Hop,' Says The Show Is Too "Ratchet" For His Brand ... Ha!


Soulja Boy - the originator of the phrase "superman dat ho" ... the same guy who has tattoos on his face ... the same guy who belittle's his girl on TV ... and the same guy who has become famous off his ratchetness - has decided to quit Love & Hip Hop Hollywood

The rapper tweeted out the other day that he feels as if his brand is too big for the show now and that he has his own show coming out. There's no word yet on what his new TV show will be about.

Soulja, who rarely appeared on this current season of LHHH, was just bragging about how much he makes per episode when he posted a peek of his $25,500 check. Well, I guess he had a change of heart. 

With LHHH newbies like Safaree Samuels and appearances from Fetty Wap, I'm sure us viewers won't miss Soulja that much anyway. 


Uh oh, it looks like Soulja Boy might have been fired! Check out what the show creator Mona Scott-Young posted on her Instagram page:
