RHOA Cynthia Bailey Prays She-NeNe Leakes Can Make Peace-the jasmine brand

The saga continues, between reality TV stars Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes. Off camera, the two former friends, who star on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, have ended their friendship. But on camera, there seems to be a little bit of unfinished friendship business. On the last episode, the two sat down to hash out just exactly went wrong. According to Cynthia, her issue with her former friend was respect. On BRAVO’s blog, she writes:

Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship.

62nd Annual San Sebastian International Film Festival - "The Equalizer" Photocall - Arrivals and Inside

More damaging SONY emails are coming to light, thanks to the hack by a group allegedly called Guardians of Peace. In the latest hacked email correspondence, a Sony producer (whose name was not shared) suggested that Denzel Washington shouldn’t star in any film that they plan to market overseas.

Why? Because the international market is ‘racist’. In the email, the producer refers to Denzel’s most recent film released in September, stating:

No, I am not saying ‘The Equalizer’ should not have been made or that African-American actors should not have been used (I personally think Denzel is the best actor of his generation).

Gayle King With Son, Daughter & Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey, along with the good folk at Oprah Magazine, pulled out all the stops for Gayle King’s birthday.

This week, Gayle, who is BFF’s to Oprah and also the editor-at-large for Oprah Magazine, was uber surprised when she walked in on an unplanned bash that had been thrown in her honor, at New York’s Pier 59.

The event included tons of food (she even had a grilled cheese station and 960 cup cakes) and drinks (Gayle’s a foodie) and a DJ. Everyone in attendance wore clogs and the color yellow — both a favorite for Gayle.

Nicki Minaj-Talks Split With Safaree Samuels-the jasmine brand

She’s spoken about it on wax and now she’s opening up even more. Nicki Minaj is publicly discussing the break-up that she recently had with her ex-boyfriend, Safaree “ScaffBeezy” Samuels.

In an interview with Power 105’s Angie Martinez, for the first time Nicki speaks candidly and even gets emotional about what she feels ruined what they had. In a vulnerable moment, she says:

I don’t think people realize it’s not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life…It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it’s not easy. I’m also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn’t mean the world to me and still doesn’t mean the world to me. I’m just figuring it out.

We now know what button to push, when it comes to Kurupt (real nameRicardo Emmanuel Brown). During a recent interview with VLAD, the west coast rapper became livid when he was asked about Kendrick Lamar’s “I’m the King of New York” line on his “Control” verse.

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 1.55.41 PM

As a backstory, Kurupt used the “King of NY” line prior to Kendrick — on the 2010 track “Get Bizy,” which also featured verses from Kendrick Lamar and others. When asked about the meaning behind his original line, Kurupt explained but then became irate saying that New Yorkers get easily offended by it. During his vent session, he noted that the line was in reference to the film ‘King of New York’ and that NYC shouldn’t consider it as a diss.

Reportedly, Tasha Smith and her husband, Keith Douglas, are one step closer to officially ending their marriage. The actress has officially filed for divorce after four years of marriage. Since she reportedly makes more money than her now estranged hubby, she has been ordered to pay spousal support — upfront. According to TMZ, she’s to pay $50K, until a permanent support agreement is hammered out in divorce court.

As previously reported, the two have filed a restraining order against each other.

Tasha Smith-Husband Keith Douglas Allegedly Files Restraining Order-the jasmine brand

The Why Did I Get Married? actress previously stated in legal documents that she was fearful of her life. In fact, she claimed that her estranged husband is very jealous and has accused her of sleeping with other women. Reportedly, he’s flown into angry rages, calling her a ‘f*ck*ng d*k*’. She says,

When he’s in a rage, I feel that he is capable of killing me.

In the court documents, Tasha also says that she is fearful that she’ll end up like the wife of actor Michael Jace [ “The Shield” actor allegedly shot and killed his wife]. If necessary, Tasha says that she will have some of her celebrity friends, including Tisha Campbell Martin, confirm her claims of abuse.

Meanwhile, Keith is singing a similar song. He says Tasha flies into alcohol fueled rages and threatens to kill him, warning him to “not fall asleep or something will happen.” He has a restraining order against Tasha in the home that they share, preventing them to stay two yards away from each other. Both deny the allegations the others have made. [TMZ]

Dr. Dres Ex-Business Partner-Steven Lamar-Says Mogul Owes Money From Beats By Dre-the jasmine brand

theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Dr. Dre’s former business partner is reportedly blasting the music mogul and his Beats By Dre, claiming he played a major role in designing the headphones and the rapper/music mogul has cut him out of royalties from the sale of the headphones.

Beats Headphones – founded by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine – reportedly filed a federal lawsuit against, Steven Lamar, an ex-business partner who worked on Beats for a period of time prior to it being launched.

Screen Shot 2014-12-17 at 11.09.10 AM

Lamar sued Dre and Iovine back in 2006, claiming he was owed money from the sale of the headphones. Dr. Dre and Iovine reached a settlement with Lamar where he receives 4% royalties on sales of certain Beats headphones.

Fast forward to earlier this year, Beats sued Lamar claiming he was falsely advertising he was a co-founder of the headphone company along side Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Lamar had launched his own headphone company and was promoting his line by stating he was the co-founder of Beats.
