Toni Braxton Opens Up About Her Relationship With Birdman, Reveals She's Scared Of Being Happy


"This could be a great love affair."


Around this time last year, there were rumors first floating around that Toni Braxton was hooking up with Cash Money CEO and rapper, Birdman. 

Fast forward a year later and Toni and Birdman are in a romantic relationship and still going strong!

In the latest episode of Braxton Family Values, Toni sat down with her sister, Towanda Braxton, and opened up about her year-plus long relationship with Birdman and how he still gives her butterflies with their romance.

“B [Birdman] called me the other day, yesterday actually, and he was just like, ‘T, I want you to hang out with me, whatever it is, let’s just do something’. I have anxiety and bubbles in my tummy and stuff. I don’t know what’s going on with me,” Toni explained to her sister.

Toni shared with her sister that part of her is reluctant to settle into the idea that Birdman really could be the man of her dreams.

“You ever been scared to be happy? I haven’t been happy in a long time outside of work. Work brings me extreme happiness. When I’m on stage and I’m performing, that’s the only time that I get those butterflies and I feel totally happy with my life. A romantic relationship? I haven’t had time for that — I should say, I chose not to make time for it but it’s right here in front of my face: happiness,” Toni explained.

She continued, “It’s the weirdest thing. Ten years ago, I never would’ve imagined me and B would be here. Who knows, this could be a great love affair.”

Aww! As long as she's happy!

August Alsina Asks Fans To Send Prayers: "I've been living my life in so much dis-ease"

August Alsina is asking fans for prayers as he's going through a difficult time in his life. He posted a message on his Instagram page:

"I've been living my life in so much dis-ease that I've literally created it within myself... God has invested something inside of me, But I am not afraid of this Agony because I know that God pulls us back to shoot us FORWARD. To my lovely and loyal fans.. Please take care of yourself and your bodies & your SOULS. A beautiful face will fade, a beautiful body will too fade, but a beautiful soul is that FOREVER. I have so much to share, until I do.. Please say a prayer."


The 24-year-old singer has previously opened up about his troubled past, health issues, crazy family drama, suicidal thoughts and dealing with depression. 

RELATED: August Alsina Cries On Instagram Then Deletes Video, Fans Show Support 

In 2015, August sat down with The Breakfast Club where he discussed some private details of his life, including suicide:

“I have thoughts about that sh*t. I just remember being super, overly depressed. Not knowing how to deal with the sh*t. Not having a mother to talk to, my father is dead. I don’t have anyone out here to teach me sh*t. I’m doing all this on my own. I went through so many surgeries, my mama didn’t even check on a n*gga. I’m damn near dead and losing my vision and you don’t check on your kid? It teached me when I have a child is when I’ll have a family. That’s why I put “Song Cry” out. This is my truth. People can take that as depressing or looking for attention, but I’m just giving you my reality. Everybody else is out here living this fantasy world."

Prayers are definitely up for August Alsina. I hope he can find the help, support and love he deserves!

3LW Reunion! Adrienne Bailon FINALLY Apologizes to Naturi Naughton All These Years Later


It's all good now!? Adrienne Bailon finally apologizes to her former 3LW sistah, Naturi Naughton, all these years later!


Tomorrow on The Real, 3LW reunites (minus Kiely Williams, I didn't see her in the clip below) when co-host Adrienne apologizes to Naturi, as they relive their girl group days.

Ooh! I gotta record this ish because they did Naturi dirty! 

Remember all that talk about there being a food fight which caused Naturi to leave the group. There was also talk that Kiely and Adrienne used to talk crap about Naturi's darker skin complexion. 

RELATED: Adrienne Bailon Blasts Mo'Nique: "Being loud doesn't mean you're keeping it real"

So if you didn't hear about this old drama.... Naturi left the group in 2002 after bandmate Kiely allegedly threw a box KFC chicken at her face during a heated argument. Naturi said that she often clashed with her bandmates and their manager, Michelle Williams, who is Kiely's mother. Jessica Benson later replaced Naturi. 

Now, Naturi is a movie star and TV actress as she stars on the hit show Power. She's also preggies! Adrienne Bailon is a co-host of The Real, and Kiely has been out of the limelight since her and Adrienne parted ways after Cheetah Girls. 

Last year, when Naturi was asked about her former bandmates on The Wendy Williams Show, Naturi said she didn't know what they were up to. So, her being on The Real tomorrow with Adrienne will be interesting!


Peep the clip below:

Updated! Adrienne Bailon Blasts Mo'Nique: "Being loud doesn't mean you're keeping it real"



**UPDATE BELOW!

The Real host Adrienne Bailon has some advice for Mon'Nque who recently blasted OprahTyler Perry, and Lee Daniels. Adrienne says you don't have to be loud to "keep it real." 

“I have an issue with people thinking that every time someone is loud or boisterous or saying something negative, that that’s them keeping it real. Why does it always have to be that, just because you’re all over the place being loud and making a lot of noise, that that’s the truth and that’s real? Why can’t keeping it real be classy? Why can’t keeping it real be, ‘let me hold my peace and let me move on?’ Why can’t keeping it real be, ‘you know what – they may have done that but I’m going to respect that and move forward.’ Why can’t that be keeping it real?”

Watch the clip below: 



... Umm, did Mo'Nique see this yet? πŸ‘€ Lol.


** UPDATE: Yup, Mo'Nique saw and responded on Twitter! See what she had to say to Adrienne below!

Curved! Melania Trump Disses Donald's Attempts to Hold Her Hand (Video)

Recent footage of Melania Trump dissing her husband, Donald, has gone viral.

The First Lady swats Donald's hand away when he attempts to hold her hand in the video below:

And, she did it again!

As the couple exited Air Force One in Rome on Tuesday, Melania curved him real quick, but in a slick way. As he reached for her hand, she swiped her hair:
Poor, Melania. She seems like she's stuck in a relationship that she can't get out of. You can tell she doesn't want to be there. I'm getting Ike and Tina Turner vibes from them.

Get out, Melania!

"And he's kinda cute too." .... "Have you had sleepovers yet?" Ellen \asked.

Nicki answered, "We have! Yup. I go to (his house)...I just thought him coming to me was too forward. Let me clarify, we didn't do the..." 

"The nasty?" Ellen said.

"No, because I'm just chilling right now, I'm celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any men, I hate men. But I might make an exception to the rule for him," Nicki said, revealing Nas told her to say hello to Ellen for him. 

"(But) he definitely doesn't know I'm really going to talk to you about it."

UPDATE: The Islamic State claimed responsibility Tuesday following a suicide bombing in Manchester that left 22 people dead at an Ariana Grande concert. 
_________________________________________

A deadly explosion killed at least 22 people and left around 50 people injured at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

Ariana Grande just finished her performance when the explosions happened around 10:35 p.m. She was not injured.

According to TMZ, Ariana suspended the rest of her world tour in the wake of the terrorist bombing. She will not perform Thursday in London and has decided, for now, to put the entire European tour on hold. She was scheduled to perform in England, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland. 

Ariana's manager, Scooter Braun, said, "We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act," adding, "We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers."

Peace Out to Another Cast Member in Grey's Anatomy Season 13 Finale


Quick Finale Recap, Jerrika Hinton Bids Farewell + My 'Grey's Anatomy' Binge Journey


Dr. Stephanie Edwards (played by actress Jerrika Hinton) is done with Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. At the end of last week's episode, us viewers were left wondering whether Stephanie would survive the fire blast. 

Grey's Anatomy creator Shona Rhimes proved that Grey's can still pull off amazing TV episodes. This was not like the typical tragic Grey's ending that I was expecting. I for sure thought Stephanie was going to die (especially after hearing that she was leaving the show to play in another TV series). But, Shonda tricked me (as I'm sure other viewers were surprised) when Stephanie survived the fire! The little girl she saved survived as well! Both of them suffered burns and bad wounds, but they'll be fine. 

I guess the easy way out would've been to kill off her character. But, I think it's very smart to keep her character alive, you know, just in case Stephanie wants to make an appearance here or there. Unfortunately, we won't see Stephanie as a doctor anymore. After her tragic experience, she told Richard Webber that she's quitting the medical program and just wants to enjoy life outside of the hospital. 

Other notable finale highlights:

That was such an awesome finale - I watched it three times already!


Jerrika Hinton Bids Farewell


Hinton posted a goodbye message to her castmates and to her fans:

-- "I am eternally thankful for five seasons of #GreysAnatomy and a graceful departure that underscores the courage it takes to choose yourself. That Stephanie literally walks through fire to reach freedom — her freedom — inspires me. It also makes me curious: What does freedom look like for you, dear viewer? After all, it’s not only the heroics that make her brave, it’s her finally seeing (and seeking) a better path. #onlyfreakingsuperheroes #takeyourpastandfindyourpath You fans and viewers are some of the most devoted folks I’ve ever met. Thank you for your endless energy. Bosslady Shonda, Queen Debbie, and entire the Grey’s Anatomy cast and crew forever remain in my heart. The #Shondaland family is a mighty, winding forest. I look forward to seeing you all in another clearing."


-- "To the ones who look like me — it is for you that my heart burns brightest. I hear you when you say I represent you. Thank you for your warmth and patience. I see you, sis! It has been the greatest honor to show us *us*. Eking out this kind of #representation on a weekly basis within a medium that continues to correlate value with proximity to whiteness is a feat. That I got to deliver a relatable, recognizable and unvarnished #StephanieEdwards who looks and feels like women I know — who are people rather than ideas — has been worth more than you know. Thank the tv gods for #TGIT."


I am eternally thankful for five seasons of #GreysAnatomy and a graceful departure that underscores the courage it takes to choose yourself. That Stephanie literally walks through fire to reach freedom — her freedom — inspires me. It also makes me curious: What does freedom look like for you, dear viewer?

My 'Grey's' Binge Journey


So, I realized I've never blogged on my actual website about Grey's before. I'm more of a new viewer, but from now on, I'm going to start posting random recaps. 

I can't believe this show has been on air since 2005 and I just got into it. Well, better late than never! 

I started my binge watching towards the end of last summer after watching a random scene of Christina and Preston hooking up for the first time in one of the on-call rooms. He brought her coffee and she wanted to personally thank him *wink, wink* (If you follow me on Instagram, you might've seen my posts here and there during my binge journey - #OooLaLaTVChats). 

I quickly became hooked to this show, especially with all those steamy hookups that were happening in and out of the hospital. 



I banged out all of the first 12 seasons on Netflix within a couple of months. I was on straight zombie mode! A couple of weekends, I literally did nothing but watch Grey's from sun up to sun down. And, I was not to be interrupted! 

I had a goal and I needed to complete it: catch up on Grey's. Boom! I was focused. 

I zoomed through almost every season, expect for season 11. It took me the longest to get through that season because I knew what was coming: Derek died. 

And, it wasn't a shocker (thanks to the internet and spoilers!) but I wasn't ready to watch it. I even watched the hospital scene on YouTube, you remember... when Derek is brain dead and Meredith lets him go (yes, I spoiled it for myself). I was mentally trying to prepare myself for Derek's death. Finally, I got through the dreadful season 11 and there's no more McDreamy. 

I understand that Derek has been dead for awhile for a lot of you fans and maybe some of you have moved on. But, I'm still not over it. This is still all too fresh for me. 

Fast forward to now....

I watched the beginning of the current 13th season on Hulu until I was all caught up to watch live on TV every Thursday night with the rest of the world. 

And now, I don't know what to do with myself! I'm just waiting on season 14 just like everyone else.

*Sigh*

It was all so easy to continuously play the next episode and watch when I want. I didn't have to go through all of the commercials or wait till next week (or even a new season!) to see what happens next or to know the fate of a certain character. Like, the plane crash episodes, or Jackson declaring his love for April and interrupting her wedding (one of my all-time favorite Grey's episodes!) or when that crazy old guy shot up the hospital in season 6 or how about when a patient had a bomb lodged in his chest and it later exploded in season 2! I would've lost my mind waiting around back then just to see what happens next. 

Gosh, I love this show! But, I tell ya, this 'having to wait until next season to know what happens next' thing kinda sucks. Lol. 

I should sue Shonda for all the emotional distress she has put me through since binge watching Grey's! Lol. This is the ONLY show that has made me cry like a baby, and I'm not that much of a crier. (I didn't even cry at that movie The Notebook ... I'm just saying). 

I've grown super attached to these Grey's characters only for most of them to die or exit the show. Then I'm yelling at the TV, like: DAMN YOU, SHONDA RHIMES! 

Ugh!

I still miss George!  

Time to re-watch the first 5 seasons.
