Anthony Anderson Under Criminial InvestigationAnthony Anderson is currently under criminal investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.  A spokesperson for the LAPD confirms to ET on Friday that they received a crime report against the Black-ish star, and that a criminal investigation is underway. No other details were available.  According to The Blast, who was first to break the news, Anderson is accused of allegedly assaulting a woman last year after she catered one of his events. Sources tell the site that the woman met with Anderson a second time after the event to talk about future opportunities with the actor when the alleged assault occurred. The specific details regarding the alleged incident are currently unclear.  A spokesperson for Anderson denies the claim and tells ET, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.” Earlier this month, Anderson received his fourth Emmy nomination for his role in the ABC sitcom. He is also set to receive a star on he Hollywood Walk of Fame later this year.

Paramount President Fired Because Of Racist RemarkAccording to Variety, former President of Paramount Television, Amy Powell, was fired from the company after allegedly making a “racially charged” quip about “angry Black women”, a phrase that has long-plagued African-American women inside and outside of the entertainment industry.  However, Powell denies everything:  “There is no truth to the allegation that I made insensitive comments in a professional setting — or in any setting,” Powell said in a statement. “The facts will come out and I will be vindicated.”  It is said that Powell made the comment during a conference call about “First Wives Club” where she was reportedly irritated by a tweet from Tracy Y. Oliver, the series’ showrunner.   Tracy Oliver tweeted…”Had a moment today that REALLY pointed out why we need representation across the board. A black female voice doesn’t matter if the decision makers don’t understand nor even want to understand what you’re saying. Where’s the #metoo for race shit out here?

Migos Member Arrested On Friday:  Offset’s latest arrest for gun possession could land the rapper behind bars for the rest of his life.   The Migos rapper, who welcomed his daughter with wife Cardi B almost two weeks ago, was arrested Friday after cops found a gun in the car he was riding in, according to court records obtained by BOSSIP.  He is now facing four charges including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of marijuana, possession of a weapon during a crime and an improper lane change, court records show.  All of the charges were pending Friday and Offset went before a judge on Saturday, where he was released on $17,000 bail.. The alleged gun discovery is a major blow to Offset, who is a convicted felon and is barred from carrying any firearms.   In fact, when he pleaded “no contest” for “riot in a penal institution” back in 2015 as part of a deal with prosecutors, he effectively copped to his third felony, and under Georgia’s three strikes rule, his next conviction could land him in prison for the rest of his life.  Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, was last locked up for eight months in 2015 after cops pulled the Migos tour bus over and discovered guns, codeine and weed aboard. Offset’s deal with prosecutors meant that his gun and drug charges were dismissed in exchange for pleading no contest to the jailhouse riot. His bandmates Takeoff and Quavo also got deals as part of the case.  He also has convictions for burglary and theft, according to court records.


After a huge fight, my fiance`wants his ring back, but I’ve refused.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  My boyfriend gave me an engagement ring after proposing to me on a double date with my best friend. However, a week later, he called and asked for it back after we had a very heated argument.  I refused, and he’s threatening to sue me to get his ring.  I want to keep the ring because I’m certain that we’ll eventually make up.  But he is insisting that I return the ring.  What would you do?  I would be too embarrassed if I had to return the ring.  I’ve shown it to everyone.    MORE

The Dating Chronicles


When Brad’s phone rang and he answered it, Carol was in his kitchen cooking his favorite meal.  She was also reveling in the fact that she didn’t have the same problems her other girlfriends had with the men in their lives.  She knew Brad loved her and she trusted him implicitly.  When she was over his house and the phone rang, she didn’t flinch in nervous suspicion like her friend, Candy.  She laughed out loud as she thought about her and how she would have stopped cooking to go stand at the door to eavesdrop on her boyfriend Sam.   Carol knew she didn’t have to worry about Brad because she knew Brad was thrilled to be with her, because of what she brought to the table.  She was not only a woman of means, but she was attractive and knew how to treat a man.
