The War Begins Between Iggy Azalea And Wendy Williams: BOSSIP reports…Wendy Williams is not one to mince words. So when she went on her show to talk about Nicki Minaj, she mentioned Iggy Azalea, but referred to her as “the Australian girl with the fake body.” Yiiikes. This prompted Iggy to clap back on Twitter with this zinger: “Who’s the crack head in the halfway house with the gossip show thing?” Oh Oh…here we go!
Tamar Braxton Casts Shade On Her Former Castmates; Tamar Braxton reignited a three-year feud with her former “The Real” co-hosts Wednesday, when she went on “The Wendy Williams Show” and dismissed her ex-coworkers as “catty.” Williams, 55, also couldn’t resist throwing some shade at “The Real,” calling the rival show “cute” before declaring the show was not as good without Braxton’s help. “The Real” host Loni Love, 48, shot back just hours later, pointing out that their “cute” program won a Daytime Emmy in 2018, something “The Wendy Williams Show” has yet to accomplish. “First of all, thank you for calling us a ‘cute’ show. We are also an Emmy-winning show. Don’t forget that,” she said during Wednesday’s episode of her show. The sniping started when Williams asked Braxton about re-joining “The Real,” from which she was fired in 2016. The 42-year-old singer replied, “Here’s the thing. I don’t want to be anybody’s marketing tool this season, no shade. I just wish everybody well and I feel like sometimes God has to move you out of situations before you become more toxic to yourself.”
Mike Johnson Expresses Disappointment In Not Being Chosen As ‘Bachelor’ …Page Six reports…Mike Johnson may not be handing out roses on Season 24 of “The Bachelor,” but the fan-favorite hopes to see other ethnicities take on the leading role in the future. Peter Weber was announced as the next “Bachelor” on Tuesday. “And yes, Peter has a Cuban mom, but let’s just be honest — he’s white, right? And that’s just being completely transparent,” he continued. “I think that there should be an Asian lead, an Indian lead… diversity is not just black and white. It’s not just salt and pepper.” Johnson, 31, competed with Weber, 28, during Hannah Brown‘s season of “The Bachelorette,” which wrapped in dramatic fashion this summer. And while much of Bachelor Nation was stunned by ABC’s decision not to tap Johnson, he believes that Weber had what the network was looking for. “I just felt that way, and I will always be honest with the way I feel, and I felt that for what they were looking for, that Peter would be a really good fit,” Johnson said. In response to Weber’s casting, former “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay, who became the franchise’s first black lead in 2017, commented that “the system isn’t working in giving us a Bachelor who is a person of color. Something has to be done. Break the rules, step outside the box, give the people what they want,” Lindsay, 34, said to the outlet. Johnson said he agrees with Lindsay’s sentiment. “I do agree with Rachel, that after 24 Bachelors, a black Bachelor should have been cast. But at the same time, ABC has been successful. They know what they’re doing for their audience. They know what they’re looking for. I wasn’t the guy they were looking for at the moment,” he said
Kanye West Is Declared The Highest Paid Rapper: According to Forbes Magazine, Kanye West Is The Cash King Of rappers: “Yeezy is expected to top $1.5 billion in sales this year—or about half of what Nike’s Air Jordan pulls in—boosting West’s pretax income to $150 million over the past year and making him hip-hop’s cash king for the first time ever,” Forbes reports. “Another career first: West out-earned Jay-Z, who ranks second on this year’s list with $81 million, buoyed by the tail end of his On The Run II tour with wife Beyoncé. Drake, the most-streamed artist of any genre, rounds out the top three with $75 million.”

Q. I was involved with a woman for five years who bought me very expensive gifts, including a Rolex watch. However, when I recently told her I was marrying someone else, in an effort to end the relationship, she went ballistic, and demanded the return of all the things she’s ever bought me. I refused, and since that time she has been harassing me at home and at work to return “HER things!” I think she’s being petty. What do you think? MORE
The Dating Chronicles
Carol sat alone in a dark theater watching a movie seven seats apart from a handsome stranger. She had counted the distance when he first sat down. The theater had few people in it on that particular afternoon and Carol was pleased with the scarcity of the crowd, as she took a seat in the back row where no one was sitting. When the stranger came in and sat in her row, she eyed him with suspicion, because he passed several empty rows to sit in hers. She wondered why such a nice-looking well-dressed guy would be in a dark theater alone on a sunny afternoon. MORE

What Would You Do?

Scene: You’re at the party with your “honey” and he/she leaves you to talk to someone of the opposite sex. They are gone too long and your jealous button is pushed. You go over, ignore the person they’re talking to, and pull them away. You express your dislike in no uncertain terms and you cause a scene, or you simply stay where you are, sulk and say nothing.

How Healthy Is Your Heart?
You Really Are What You Eat…
by J.M. Smokes, M.D.
I recently discovered in the worst way possible that clogged arteries do not discriminate and have very little to do with age. I watched my thirty six year old neighbor grasp his chest and fall over on his car, as he was washing it one day in front of his house. The coroner’s report said he died instantly, and his mother said he had been battling the cholesterol challenge for awhile. He was a big guy with a big appetite, and he wasn’t sick. Thus, it’s hard to focus on taking better care of yourself, when you don’t have any real symptoms of illness or a sense that anything is really wrong MORE
7 Steps To

- Be careful who you sleep with. A smart woman treats her body like a sacred temple or an encrusted jewel box with precious gems inside. In other words, she holds it in the highest regard, realizing that her womanhood is the doorway to her soul. She knows that sex cannot get a man or keep him and that the real way to his heart is the seduction of his mind, which is totally governed by what intrigues him. MORE
Frustrations From The Front…
Tony – “I recently read where a woman smashed out all the windows in her boyfriend’s car, because he dumped her for another woman. The woman in the story behaved like an imbecile. I ought to know. I had the same thing happen to me when I ended a long term relationship with a woman I no longer cared about…only she broke every window in my home. I’m sick and tired of these women out here who can’t take rejection. The relationship either works or it doesn’t.” MORE
