Cardi Hustlers

Cardi B is making money moves to the big screen! The Grammy winning rapper has signed on to star in the stripper revenge film ‘Hustlers’, alongside J. Lo, Keke Palmer, and Constance Wu.

When we saw J. Lo twirling on the pole a few weeks ago, we thought she was just trying something new for A-Rod. Turns out, she was training for a new film. Titled ‘Hustlers’ and set for release later this year, the film is set during the 2008 financial crisis. The film centers around a team of strippers who want revenge on their Wall Street Johns and hope to scam their former clients out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, this will be Cardi’s first feature film. She will be sharing the screen with the likes of Julia Stiles and Lili Reinhart. Quite the step up from her Love & Hip Hop days! But this isn’t Cardi’s first time acting. She did have a guest role on BET’s Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Wendy Williams Reveals She’s Been Living in “Sober Home”

wendy williams reveals addiction

For years people scolded Wendy for never spilling her own tea. Well, here it is. Wendy Williams has been living in a “sober home” to quietly get treatment for a long unresolved addition to cocaine.

Revealing a secret known only to her husband, Kevin Hunter, Wendy says although she has always been candid about her cocaine use, she never sought treatment. The daytime television gossip queen shared with her audience that after each episode is filmed she goes to her Pilates class and then heads to several meetings across the city before ultimately returning to her group home. Driven by a “24-hour sober coach”, Wendy has been rooming at a facility where it’s “doors locked by 10 pm, lights out by 10pm.” Detailing her evenings, she says, “I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you.”

“It’s my truth.”

Over the course of her career, Wendy Williams has discussed her drug use multiple times. However, when it comes to how she stopped, Wendy says, “I never went to a place to get the treatment — I didn’t know how, except God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.” While she was seeking professional help for her addiction, Wendy said she did not confide in her other family members. As for whether her stay in the group home contributed to her absence from January to March 4th, we can’t be sure. A fractured shoulder and ongoing battle with Graves’ disease are credited as responsible for her extended break.

Wendy’s admission has been applauded by many who want to remove the stigma surrounding drug addiction discussions. Many have taken to Twitter to share their love and support for her. Recently, Wendy’s foundation partnered with an organization geared toward branching treatment and long-term recovery. She hopes that by being open about her struggle, other will be inspired to get the help they need.
