No one expects to catch tea at breakfast, but at 9 am Khia went live on IG to discuss The Queens’ Court and let it all go. When I tell you she took no prisoners, I mean that!
Perceived to be a difficult person and following the supposed collapse of The Queens’ Court, many have shunned Khia and taken to Twitter and Instagram to pick a side. With a week of silence behind her, Khia took to IG the morning of February 13th to share all the details of the events that surrounded the disappointing February 5th show.
Everybody Catching Bullets Ho’
Khia isn’t called motor mouth for no reason because she let so many people have it that I lost count. She dragged the people who set up the equipment for The Queens’ Court that fateful Monday. After turning her sights from the collapse of that stream, Khia went on to attack Funky Dineva and other vloggers who quickly jumped into the foray to profit from using The Queens’ Court to get views but things got *personal*. She drug Mo’Nique for her performance in Precious saying she only won that Oscar because she was channeling her mother’s response to her sexual abuse. She attacked Funky Dineva for his alleged love of cocaine, going so far as to recount an episode where he snorted it from a bar in plain sight. She went in on him for his rental suit, stealing appliances, and destroying property. I had to clutch my pearls and it wasn’t even 10 AM yet!
Fresh Brewed Tea
Fresh from the gym, Khia went live from her home to share a harsh truth that everyone that roots for you publicly does not stand for you privately. The chaos of conspiring assistants and rumors of infighting came to light in Khia’s account. She states despite pleading with Madison to just keep things simple, the advice of unseen showrunners won TS over, leading to the change in the set, addition of props, and increased expenditure, all of which she thought were unnecessary.
As a fan of the show, I wasn’t thrilled with the change of their set in TS Madison’s home, frequently called The Marvelous Chateau. I agreed with her that simpler was better and their original setup was more than agreeable for creating the atmosphere of a ki with a couple of the realest women you’d ever meet, but I digress. Khia’s account of why The Queens’ Court has taken a tumble is not rooted in anger with her good friend and co-host. Her rage is however directed at the assistants that are frequently heard laughing in the background, “showrunners”, and so-called friends whose creative direction altered the show.Khia's account of why The Queens' Court has taken a tumble is not rooted in anger with her good friend and Click To Tweet
Beginning of the End
According to Khia, Mo’Nique was initially supposed to come to TS Madison’s house for the interview but later decided to just Skype in. Khia was onboard with the idea because, in previous episodes, they had used the platform to successfully hold court. She expected everything to be as comical as usual but things quickly turned south. According to Khia, before the meeting was set to occur, TS Madison went to an interview with a trio of men in their home and liked their setup. The lighting arrangement, networking configuration, and technical side of things looked right and Maddie came back to Khia with a pitch — let’s upgrade our production. Khia says Maddie told her the men agreed to stop by The Marvelous Chateau and set everything up to look like a studio quality production. Khia insisted that they continue the way things are, that they didn’t need to further alter their layout because whenever a network contract was secured, professionals would be better equipped to fit their needs. Although Khia did not want to make any further changes, Madison purchased the necessary equipment and the ball was in place…but it wouldn’t move until just 2 hours before the show was to begin.
In a recent upload, TS Madison says it was Super Bowl Sunday and admitted that things should have been in place Saturday, two days in advance but things were delayed because Khia had not appeared in time for preparations to begin. Connectivity issues arose when Madison discovered that you couldn’t have 2 modems in a single residence, which is against Comcast’s company policy.
The fact that the people who were setting this up for her didn’t know this not only proved their incompetence, it cost Madison $200. Wanting to improve the quality of the show to accommodate Oscar winner Mo’Nique, Maddie went on to spend $700 to use a program that allowed them to have everyone onscreen at once. Ever the perfectionist, she wanted The Queens’ Court as a brand to appear ready for bigger things and holding an iPad or her phone would have been tacky to her. She lamented that Khia was not as emotionally invested in their success that day. In Khia’s video, she says why.
Don’t Trust ‘Em
Uneasy with the idea of strangers coming in and involving themselves in the production of their show, Khia disconnected herself from their goings on based on feelings. She felt as though they were coming just to be onlookers to their sabotage, having no real value to add to their show. Khia says that Madison was aware of how she felt toward the men who were assisting in their setup but they continued anyway without Khia present Saturday when they were initially supposed to set up. When Khia finally did arrive and things were not working as planned, she insisted they contact Mo and ask her to reschedule. Mo’Nique immediately responded negatively. Of course, they continued with the scheduled interview anyway, Khia wasn’t having it and left Maddie in tears of frustration while Mo’Nique and her accomplice got their lives muttering to themselves between inauthentic reassurance. And that’s where we are now.
We Need A Resolution
Through all of this, Khia insists that she harbors no ill will toward Maddie and Maddie has said the same in her own statement. As a fan of the show, I truly hope they resolve their issues, get back to the basics, and March 19th return with a clean slate. The duo will still be meeting their tour dates, with the first occurring on Feb 17th in DC. As many sit at home with their glasses filled to the brim with petty juice and Bacardi with a splash of Coca-Cola, the court won’t be in session fast enough.
What do you think of the recent events? Will there be a new set of hosts March 19, and will the audience tune in?
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?
— Akira Takizawa (@OnionKnight__) December 12, 2018
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.
— Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) December 13, 2018
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….
— El Viejo Ebro (@oldmanebro) December 12, 2018
Do you think Ebro was out of line? In what ways could Kodak have responded better?
Nicki Minaj’s New Beau, Spilled Tea
Social media has been dragging Nicki Minaj for her history of supporting alleged sex offenders. Tired of the misinformation, she’s speaking out to defend her man.
When Nicki was spotted with a new man on her arm, everyone wondered who he was. We were all sure, despite their dismissal, that Nicki and Lewis Hamilton were together. Instead of choosing the handsome millionaire Formula 1 driver, Nicki is riding with a convicted sex offender with a violent past. Talk about crying in a Nissan instead of a Phantom.
Nicki! You in danger, girl!
Kenneth Petty, Nicki’s new beau, is a registered sex offender convicted of attempted rape. Insisting its a complicated situation, Nicki says it stems from Petty dating the victim and her mother not approving. Arrested and charged with first-degree rape in April 1995, he and the victim were both 16.
In court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Petty used a “knife/cutting instrument” during the attempted rape. Carrying a sentence of 18-54 months, it’s unclear how much time was served. Even worse, Petty was charged with murder in April 2002 and was released in May 2013.
Nicki claims Petty is an old flame from her teens, but it’s unclear how much time they had together considering he’s spent so much of his life behind bars.
Who Said Dat?
Chinese Kitty, a castmate of Love & Hip Hop Miami, recently did a radio interview. But it wasn’t the interview that made waves, it was her IG Live segment afterward. Believing the cameras and mics were no longer recording, the crew began sharing celebrity details, mainly about Trina, Nicki, and Meek Mill.
While talking about her friendship with Nicki, a woman off-camera said to Chinese Kitty:
“I have a question: was that during the time she was covering? Because she had an issue with her butt shots? Oh, I know her.”
Chinese Kitty then starts laughing and the woman continues:
“My girlfriend, Renee that dates Adrian Broner the boxer, we all know one another. Meek, we know everybody. We all are friends. So Nicki Minaj had a problem with her butt shots, and you know about that story. So for a while she couldn’t have sex with Meek and that’s why she felt so insecure that he was f*cking somebody else. And that’s facts!”
When it comes to who that somebody was, Trina’s name came up, leaving her feeling some type of way. Not wanting to be a part of the drama, Trina let us know to keep her name out of our mouths PERIOD.
Go awf, sis! But did you notice she didn’t deny it? Whatever the case, Kitty felt like she needed to make amends with the Diamond Princess and apologized.
