Wendy Williams Is Still Ill But “Fighting” According To Her Brother. Wendy Williams is still hospitalized after reportedly undergoing a psychiatric evaluation, but she’s “fighting,” according to her brother as he gave an update on her health. In a YouTube video, Tommy Williams thanked the talk show host’s fans for supporting her as she struggles with her mental health. “I do believe and have faith that Wendy is going to make it,” he said. “It’s not an easy fight. It’s one that individuals always win. Sadly, come November, we are on the anniversary of my mother’s passing, and it’s not easy.” According to reports, Wendy was voluntarily admitted to a New York City hospital on Sept. 14 for a psychiatric evaluation. Around the same time, Wendy’s team announced that the premiere date for her 13th season would be pushed back from Sept. 20 to Oct. 4.

Wendy was “continuing her health evaluations” and had tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19, a statement said. Little else is known about her condition, but her brother deemed the hospitalization “necessary.”  It’s interesting that Tommy is giving updates on Wendy’s condition, as the two haven’t always had the best relationship. Last year he even accused his sister of not going to their mother’s funeral. “What makes somebody not go to their mother’s funeral? I don’t understand not giving a salute to the one person who was always there and showed you support,” Tommy said in the video at the time. “I don’t get how you can just move on and act like nothing happened.”  Tommy later said their beef was “beyond” them. 

Adele And Boyfriend Rich Paul Are Now Instagram-Official. Page Six reports…“Turning Tables” singer took the major step this weekend, posting a black-and-white photo booth picture of her and the sports super agent agent from Anthony Davis and now-wife Marlen P’s lavish wedding on Saturday in Los Angeles. As is tradition with celebrity debuts, Adele put the headline-making picture last in her photo dump. She captioned the series with a simple red-heart emoji.  The British songstress and Paul first sparked dating rumors when they were spotted sitting together at Game 5 of the NBA Finals in July — just two months after teasing they had been “hanging out.”

Multiple sources exclusively confirmed the relationship to Page Six after the public outing, with one insider telling us, “They are [definitely] dating.”Since then, the couple has been taking their romance public at even more events and outings. They attended Robert Kraft’s birthday party together in late July alongside a plethora of A-list names, including Jon Bon Jovi, Kenny Chesney, Meek Mill, Billie Jean King and Gayle King. Page Six also heard Lionel Richie performed and David Spade did stand-up for the high-profile crowd.

Nicki Minag’s Fans March On CDC HQ Chanting She Told The Truth About Vaccines.  BOSSIP reports…Though Nicki Minaj may think she was just stating her personal opinion about wanting to do more “research” before getting the vaccine, her millions of impressionable fans heard her loud and clear–and while some of them are disappointed in her rhetoric, others are supporting her statements. Earlier this week, about a dozen or more fans marched on the Atlanta HQ of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chanting about their belief that the pop star “told the truth” with her comments about COVID vaccines. According to reports from Page Six, more than a dozen protesters shouted through a loudspeaker this week in defense of Minaj’s fears about the jabs, which includes her (still-to-be-proven) story that a cousin’s friend was left impotent and with swollen testicles after getting vaccinated.

“Nicki told the truth to me! Fauci lied to me!” the group chanted, referring to White House infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci. In response to Nicki’s tweets, he said this week there’s “no evidence” backing her claims. Sadly enough, protest leaders told CBS46 that they trusted the rapper’s word over that of CDC officials and Fauci. “Nicki the queen of rock!” one of the march’s ringleaders told the outlet of her apparent credentials. “And she said, ‘I’m questioning this vaccine, and we should all question this vaccine.’”

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ Star Gets 17 ½ Years In Prison For Fraud:  Reality TV star and rapper Maurice “Mo” Fayne has been sentenced to 17½ years in prison for multiple charges including bank fraud and conspiracy for the misuse of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and wire fraud relating to the multimillion dollar Ponzi scheme, said the U.S. Attorney’s office this week.  Fayne, a star on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” submitted a $3.7 million PPP loan application to United Community Bank in April 2020. The loans were meant to help businesses struggling during the pandemic. Fayne claimed that his trucking business had “107 employees and an average payroll of $1,490,200” and said that he would use the loan to “retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest payments, lease payments, and utility payments related to his trucking business,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

However, he ended up using the loan for “improper purposes,” including paying overdue child support, leasing a Rolls-Royce, starting a new business in Arkansas and buying custom jewelry. “Fayne planned to use the PPP program as a cover for his long-running Ponzi scheme,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine. “The funds the program supplies serve as a lifeline to many businesses desperately trying to stay afloat during the pandemic, and unfortunately his fraud helped deplete those precious dollars.”   Fayne pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy and wire fraud for his role in the Ponzi scene, bank fraud and making false claims to a financial institution, according to the Justice Department.

‘Ghost’ Grooms

Why They Didn’t Show Up

by Cheryl Lakes

Last year, after a distant cousin failed to show at an elaborately planned garden wedding that his bride’s parents had spent a fortune on, and a friend had a similar experience where her groom showed up at the church and left before the ceremony began, I decided to go in search of those men who failed to show up for the wedding.  Here are some insights from both parties…the guilty groom and the jilted bride.  Bob:  “I called my fiancée at 3 am and told her I had changed my mind because I realized that I still loved my ex-wife.  But she talked me out of it because she had spent all this money on a huge wedding. ” MORE

4 Must -Do’s

Before You Marry

by Sierra Silverspoon

I married my first husband after only knowing him for four weeks.  I went in blind and excited and came out wounded and scarred.   It also lasted four weeks. One of the ways to avoid marrying the wrong person is to have some pre-determined criteria of what you want and need in a relationship. In my case, I got caught up on what he was saying and not what he was doing.  Had I been a little more patient, time would have revealed his inconsistencies and I would have bailed out earlier. So, how do we prevent marrying the wrong person?  Speaking from experience and two marriages here’s some good advice: MORE

10 More Classy
Things To Do …

by Sierra Silverspoon

Never tell someone something said about him/her that was unflattering, degrading or maligning, and put it under the banner of friendship or truth-telling. A bad report should never be reported.  After a set-up blind date didn’t work for a cousin,  her “best” friend informed her that the guy said she was too fat.  1. Only speak your opinion when asked to do so.  2. Be a secret keeper. 3.  Substitute the word Thanks for Thank You.  4. Keep your word regardless of how difficult it may be.  5. Switch out the words, “I apologize” for “I’m sorry.” The words, “I’m sorry” are more heartfelt.   MORE

Q.. I’ve been dating a guy for five months, who has never tried to kiss me or attempt to spend the night.

Marital Misadventures

Phoebe, Dallas – “In the last 5 years, I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on wedding gifts, bridesmaid’s dresses, rehearsal suits, etc, and not one of the couples who became betrothed before my eyes, is still with their partner.  One friend married a man who confessed to her on the eve of the wedding, that he was bi-sexual, and could not commit to fidelity, and she still married him.  Her excuse was that she didn’t want to be embarrassed at the church by calling the wedding off.”  Tyra, St. Louis  – “My very successful sister almost got married last year to a guy she was crazy about.  He led her to believe that she was his soulmate from heaven.     MORE

The Male Room…

The Calamity Of Choices

by Vince Kendricks

It was the day before my birthday, and for the first time since my divorce, I was faced with a dilemma.  The one thing about being married is that you never have to figure out who you’re spending special days with.  At that moment, I had more prospects than I could handle. Diana called the night before and asked what I wanted for my birthday.  I knew that was her subtle way of letting me know she expected to spend the day with me.  However, I had been seeing her for almost two months, and unfortunately, I was bored already.
