Full House of Scammers: Education Scandal Grips Country

Move over, Joanne! Desperate Whitewife Felicity Huffman and Lori “Aunt Becky” Loughlin of Full House have become the latest faces for entitled rich White female scammers. But don’t forget about the other big-name bandits who are caught up in the mix. Right now, the 204-page federal indictment includes roughly 50 people who are facing charges from participating in a college admissions exam scandal.

College-counseling consultant William Singer facilitated fraud through a racketeering conspiracy that ranged from fabricated entrance-exam scores to false athletic accolades for admission to NCAA Division 1 schools. Hollywood celebrities and CEOs who took part in the scheme did so to secure placement for their children by paying up to $6.5 million in bribes.

FBI officials apprehended Felicity Huffman with their guns drawn on Tuesday. The Desperate Housewives star donated $15,000 to Singer’s charity to facilitate falsified SAT scores for her daughter, which gained her entry to USC. However, Lori Loughlin attemped to evade officers by leaving her residence before their arrival. She has since been detained in Los Angeles. The Full House actress is facing charges for shelling out $500,000 to pretend her daughter, Olivia Jade, was on the rowing team.

Lori’s participation has reminded fans of the 90s sitcom of an episode of the show. She and Uncle Jesse faced a moral dilemma centered around fabricating information to secure the admission of their twin boys to a prestigious school. In the episode called “Be True To Your Preschool”, Uncle Jesse is the one who forges the application and Aunt Becky ultimately has a change of heart, and comes forward to confess.

Tuesday afternoon, Intelligencer released a full list of the 50-some parties listed in the federal indictment. Notable entries include:

  • Jane Buckingham, CEO of Trendera and author of The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life
  • Robert Flaxman, CEO and founder of real estate firm, Crown Realty & Development
  • Mossimo Giannulli, fashion designer

Ray J Allegedly Stranded Pregnant Princess Love and Their Daughter

Trouble in Scoot-E Bike paradise? Ray J is catching heat from social media and his pregnant wife after allegedly stranding her and their daughter in Las Vegas!

With the Love and Hip Hop Hollywood season finale and reunion episodes on the horizon, many are speculating this is a quick ploy by Mona Scott Young to get attention for the show. But it’s clear the couple has had problems in their relationship long before now. Remember the infamous pool incident? In any event, it’s safe to say things are not looking good for the singer-turned-entrepreneur and his once-doting wife.

Ray J has blocked Princess Love after she accused him on Instagram of stranding her and their precious child, Melody, in the city of sin. Leaving a comment beneath a recent post of his, Princess said “[Ray J] Left me and Melody stranded in Vegas and blocked me from calling…now you wanna post family photos #ByeUgly.” Princess who is currently 8 months pregnant with their second child then shared a post to her IG Story. She quipped:

“Yes, I can fly home…I have my own money. But my car is here and I don’t want to drive back alone with my daughter because I’m over 8 months pregnant and I don’t even want to have to stop for gas or go into labor with all of this human trafficking going on…”

After seeing his beloved wife had called him out for leaving her, Ray J promptly blocked Princess on IG and has since removed all trace of her from his page. Upon recognizing that she’d been cut off, Princess posted a screenshot and said “Somebody tell Scooty boy he’s only hurting himself. This is so funny to me.” A fan acknowledged how inappropriate Ray J’s response was and chimed, “My future husband would never.” Princess answered, “Mine either, sis.”

Do you think Ray J and Princess Love are just trying to boost ratings for L&HHH or is a divorce on the works?

Ari Lennox, GoldLink Share Award Show Frustrations

mm

Published

on

While some recipients of Soul Train awards are celebrating their Grammy nominations, others are reeling from being snubbed. Talented emerging rappers like Megan Thee Stallion and established songbirds like Solange were not among The Grammy’s 2020 hopefuls. The absence of groundbreaking ingénues and omission of experimental artists has left those spurned, and their fan bases, questioning the relevance of once esteemed honors.

After pouring her heart out at the disappointment of not receiving a coveted honor from the Soul Train Awards, Ari Lennox has hinted she could be quitting music altogether. Initially conveyed through a series of now-scrubbed tweets, the Shea Butter Baby songstress said “[Every time] I wrap my head around it I just can’t accept it.” Nominated for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Album/Mixtape of the Year, and Best Collaboration Performance, Lennox walked away from the 32nd annual Soul Train Awards empty handed and broken hearted. But she’s vowed “what I will not do is ever be this depressed again.”

Her heart set upon claiming the award for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Ari says her disappointment goes beyond losing the trophy. “It’s not just an award. It wasn’t any award show,” she pined. “It was the soul train awards. As you can see I’m [a] big fan of soul music and a huge fan of soul train history.” Gutted by the lack of recognition, Ari’s response has fans clamoring for understanding. After all, it isn’t often that we see an artist publicly distraught over losing at a Black awards show, but that’s a topic for another day. Despite the critical reception of Shea Butter Baby, Ari says she anticipated the cold shoulder, just not at the Soul Train Awards. Now radio silent across all her social media accounts, it’s implied she could feel the same about the 2020 Grammy nominations. On this subject, GoldLink shares her rage.

Loudly decrying the illustrious award show, GoldLink took to Instagram with a long caption to distance himself from the ceremony. “Honestly, its f**k the Grammys til the day I die,” he started. “I am no longer participating in that wild ass slave ass political ass cheating ass game any longer.” Disappointed in the selection of nominees, GoldLink called out The Grammys for a “lack of relevance”. Believing they are too far removed from the pulse of the music industry, he attacked the nomination review committees for omitting international Black artists and undercutting the value of Black art. With absolutely no female rap nominees on the ticket this year and eclectic compilations like The Gift and When I Get Home miscategorized or ignored, it’s easy to share his sentiments. Demanding The Grammys evolves to recognize the full spectrum of Black artistry, GoldLink offered pointed criticism citing the impact such neglect would have on future generations. Saying “WTF do you think these kids learn when you tell them [their] Black art isn’t good enough? Or isn’t noticed at all?” GoldLink took aim at their dated practices. He added “I’ve just gotten to a point after three years of being silent on this topic, that my value is much beyond what closed door establishments have been giving us.” Alluding to Ari’s snub, he chimed “Even how our peers are voting against us. I cannot partake.”

T.I. and Tiny to Appear on Red Table Talk

mm

Published

on

According to an ET exclusive, Jada Pinkett Smith has made space for T.I. to address his recent controversy regarding the invasive lengths of his parenting. But does T.I. truly need another platform to spew his willful ignorance?

After catching heat for comments made during a now-removed episode of Ladies Like Us, T.I. is on a redemption tour. Hoping to regain some favor with the public, he is appearing on Red Table Talk alone and alongside his wife, Tiny. Set to air next week, many are expecting the episode to feature an explanation for his poor judgment but more are wondering if it is truly necessary. With the damage already done and fallout ensuing, what more can T.I. add to the conversation that will not further exploit his daughter? And why was Deyjah not extended an invitation to express herself instead?

As someone who grew up in an oppressively protective household, I identify with Deyjah’s struggle. It is difficult to grow up in a space where you do not have agency over your own body or the license to explore your sexuality. Coming of age within the strict confines of what can only be described as the training grounds for a ‘Proverbs 31 woman’ is something few aspire to endure, Deyjah Harris included. After being embarrassed by T.I. and unsupported by Tiny, Deyjah has taken steps to separate herself from her family or, at the very least, protect her peace. Deyjah’s unfollowing of the immediate members of The Harris fold on social media and liking the posts of understanding strangers has stood out as her signs of rebellion. Still, she has yet to publicly articulate the extent of her trauma which is her right. However, it is my personal opinion that until she is given and accepts the opportunity to publicly condone the wrongs against her, all other persons, namely T.I., should kindly shut up.

While there is no way to confirm whether Jada offered Deyjah an opportunity to begin or continue her healing at the Red Table, to extend an invitation to her abuser is tacky. T.I. has proven time and again that he is a hardened misogynist. He views his wife, her body, and her sexuality as possessions to be exploited and has groomed his daughter for the same abusive treatment through unwarranted gynecological visits. Even during his Red Table Talk episode T.I. will exploit his wife’s pain by rehashing “how they survived, in regards to their marriage.” The man simply does not need another soap box, pulpit, microphone, or stage to amplify his narrow-minded musings. Regardless of the satisfaction we might find in an educational public dogpiling, it should not come by the complicity of another woman or at a woman’s expense.
