Married to Medicine is one of the most iconic shows on Bravo! They’re been many reads and drags on Bravo from Phaedra’s infamous read on Kenya Moore to NeNe discussing Chateau Sheree.
Married to Medicine’s season 2 reunion had that moment backstage and we all got our entire lives.
Michelle Williams Quits Broadway Show
It has been a difficult year for Michelle Williams. Having ended her engagement, per doctors’ orders she now has to end her Broadway career.
From a statement provided to People magazine, the Destiny’s Child alum has orders to take it easy.
“Effective immediately, Michelle T. Williams has been advised by doctors to take a leave of absence from performing.”
The 38-year-old singer and mental health advocate had the role of Erzulie, a goddess, in “Once On This Island”. She had only been performing in the role for two weeks.
Sources say her understudy, Cassondra James, will take over until December 26th. From that point, Lea Salonga, the original lead, will resume her role until the finale January 6th.
With no further explanation given regarding why Michelle must take a sabbatical, its tough to say why she needs a break. Her ongoing struggle to conquer depression, the recent stint in a mental health care facility, and toxic relationship may have taken their toll.
Hopefully, Michelle is taking some time to mend herself. This summer she stated, “Take one step at a time! Don’t overwhelm yourself.” We’re all hoping she’s following her own advice.
Kodak Black Walks Out Hot 97 Interview After Ebro Brings Up Sexual Assault Case
During an interview with Hot 97, Ebro asked Kodak questions about his criminal past. Things went smoothly until Ebro mentioned the seriousness of sexual assault allegations.
At the beginning of the segment, Ebro posed an interesting question to Kodak for which he had no answer.
“When you look at all the stuff that you’ve got on your rap sheet, everything that you’ve been charged with, how much do you take accountability for?”
“Everything that you’ve been charged with.” At the time, Kodak may have only been thinking about misdemeanor drug charges. Ebro had specifically mentioned marijuana possession and alluded to “different things” Kodak had been going through.
Kodak was obliged to answer the Hot 97 crew’s questions, but it wasn’t until the focus was shifted to sexual assault that he got uneasy. Ending the interview, in a huff, Kodak said:
“I feel like sometimes when n*ggas like me going through sh*t, like, y’all be entertained by bullsh*t.”
Indicted on sexual misconduct charges, Kodak could face 30 years in prison if convicted. He stands accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl in a hotel. Allegedly biting her neck and breast before the assault, prosecutors claim he also pushed her into a wall. With the trial tentatively scheduled for April 2019, Kodak is avoiding any discussion surrounding the case.
Far to go
Following the release of the interview, many of Kodak’s fans took to social media to support the artist. Showing that the hip hop community is not prepared to call out misogyny and abusive behavior, his fanbase began attacking Ebro. Still, many stood in Ebro’s defense. Despite the rise of the #MeToo movement, hip-hop is still ages behind in terms of inclusive progression. Twitter users echoed the same sentiments with statements like these:
I find it so very interesting that people of Blackness will rightfully vilify Nicki Minaj for dating a rapist, yet ignore Kodak Black being one himself. There are terms for this, right?

People being furious at Ebro for telling Kodak Black "We take sexual assault seriously here" is proof there's a lack of guidance out here. People whose job is interviewing musicians are supposed to ask hard questions. But that wasn't a hard question. That was just accountability.

In his defense, Ebro had this to say in regards to the touchy subject:
I was tryna have a balanced convo with Kodak Black & not ignore the serious allegations against him but also not ask specifics to make his situation worse… and he wanna get an attitude with me?? Nah….

Do you think Ebro was out of line? In what ways could Kodak have responded better?
Locked up! Michael Cohen Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison
Trump’s Ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison! After pleading guilty to nine federal charges, the fixer has found himself a one way ticket to Club Fed.
You are going to jail! Periodt!
Michael Cohen stood before Judge William Pauley and tearfully apologized to his family and the people of the United States. Cohen cried:
“Recently, the President tweeted a statement calling me weak and it was correct, but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds.”
While Cohen’s lawyers had argued against a prison sentence on the grounds of his cooperation with Mueller, he will still face 36 months for 8 charges. For the Mueller charge, he faces an additional 2 months as well as a $50,000 fine. As of now, he has to turn himself in March 6th, 2019.
Cohen pleaded guilty just 13 days ago.
