February 1st, Cardi B spoke with People to confirm she is working on her marriage. Despite fans best wishes, the rapper says, “it’s a personal thing” and her marriage is “not for them”.
We Were Rooting For You!
After the stunt Offset pulled during Cardi’s Rolling Loud performance, we thought they might really be done. Then, she started making videos about how she was dickmatized. Then, she was spotted in Puerto Rico riding jet skis and peen. Now, after months of fans hoping she would leave Offset to his extramarital activities to focus on her career, Cardi has taken him back.
When the couple began dating and then secretly married in September 2017, fans of the Migos rapper and Cardi hailed them as the new Beyoncé and Jay-Z. But Cardi says she just sees them as a regular couple.
“I feel like we just really are a very regular couple. We just do regular things. I feel like: We’re famous… we’re really popular right now — I just don’t know the obsession, like I feel like everything we do is a big deal. Even before the bad scandals, just from the first time they seen us together, it was just like this big crazy deal.”
Still, they wanted the scope of their fame to steer clear of their relationship.
The luxury of being a regular couple was lost a long time ago. Both Cardi and Offset helped see to that. They were very public with their issues. Cardi has a history of being easily provoked via social media. She responds to many of her detractors personally, sometimes through Instagram Live rants. Offset’s propensity for infidelity only amplified Cardi’s rage. Nevertheless, Cardi is right. Her marriage is her marriage.
Right now, Cardi says they are “taking things slow. We have a baby right now. That’s right our real big focus.” Their 6-month-old daughter, Kulture Kiari, has been at the center of Offset’s appeals to reunite their family. During the holidays and near his birthday, Offset pleaded for Cardi to receive him because he missed his daughter. But this umpteenth chance comes with a clause, Offset has no room to misbehave.
After admitting that he was “partaking in activity” he had no business doing, he “apologized” for breaking Cardi’s heart. Cardi has since come to her husband’s defense.
“People are so quick to be like, ‘You should just date somebody else.’ It’s like, Honey, I’m not like you — I’m famous. I gotta consider who I’m dating. I gotta make sure people will have me for me. And I have a kid… We are a package. It’s not just Cardi, it’s Cardi and Kulture.”
Will your fans accept you?
Cardi must understand fans may not stand by her decision. Both she and the Migos rapper stand to face a lot of scrutiny, especially after months of speculation that their split was a manufactured publicity stunt. She began and ended a relationship publicly, postured independence, and reneged on that perceived strength. Many onlookers were heavily invested in her making the choice they didn’t. Genuine or not, let’s hope Cardi and Offset can work things out and develop a healthy relationship. It can’t be easy to make choices like these with millions watching
Summer Bunni Releases A Diss
Trying to come up off the controversy surrounding her involvement as one of Offset’s many mistresses, Summer Bunni is grasping at relevancy by releasing a diss track aimed at Cardi B. The 20-year-old freestyled over Junior M.A.F.I.A’s “Get Money” and referenced taking Cardi’s man and giving him back.
Summer Bunni’s lyrics include the 3 way she was allegedly involved in with Offset, the fact that he paid her for sex, and their FaceTime conversation:
Bitch who the queen of the press shit / I heard you press bitch / You better check you press list / Pop pop on the big bad dummy / He want a 3 BITCH with the summer Bunni / Now since I’m hot I got all the haters / Now lemme add yeah I got all da paper / Back to clout I got respect for some rap niggas / Is you mad cause I fucked and gave em back nigga
Although Cardi did not respond directly to Summer Bunni’s diss, she did post a subliminal clapback on IG and Twitter.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Share News of the Loss of Their Unborn Child
Early Thursday morning Chrissy Teigen and John Legend let the world know of the loss of their unborn child. In a heartfelt and heartbreaking post to social media, Teigen described her and husband John Legend’s “deep pain you only hear about.” She went on to talk about how the couple does not typically name their children “until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before (they) leave the hospital,” but somehow they fell on the name “Jack.”
The heartbreaking news comes just days after first being admitted to the hospital for what she described as heavy bleeding. However, two days ago, she assured fans that both her and baby were healthy and doing well. Teigen, no stranger to social media, continued to engage her following, giving brief updates along the way, when shortly after midnight she shared photos of her and John in the hospital cradling their newborn in the immediate aftermath.
While her husband has remained largely unproblematic and scandal-free, Teigen has been the frequent target of scathing criticism – much of which is completely valid. From her ridiculing Black hair, to her seemingly mocking intimate partner violence when she referenced Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s incident, Chrissy Teigen has been the focus of such harsh vitriol that she has threatened to quit social media altogether on multiple occasions. Sharing such personal news with the world may come as a surprise to many.
Overwhelmingly, however, the internet’s response has been positive and embracing. Celebrities and non-celebs alike have offered words of support to the couple as they go through this difficult time. See both the model’s post and the heartwarming responses to it below.

Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
When White Privilege Isn’t Enough to Get Into USC: Lori Loughlin Sentenced to 2 Months in Prison
Actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison today for her role in the college admissions scandal. If you haven’t followed the 10-month-long saga, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a fashion designer, plead not guilty to a bribery charge in a college admission scam back in 2019… Because white privilege just isn’t what it used to be.
The two later plead guilty to paying William Rick Singer, the mastermind, $500,000 to guarantee their two daughters a spot at the University of South Carolina.
Loughlin’s sentence came several hours after her husband’s five-month sentence. According to the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Giannulli’s five-month sentence also came with a whopping fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.
“[Giannulli] engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts said in the memo released on Tuesday. “Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly enlisting Singer for a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he caught on to their [fradulent activity].
