Sinbad is a great stand up comedian. You can fight me on this. His stand up cable specials was amazing. I laughed and I didn’t have to think about the language and topics being inappropriate for my age. I watched A Different World, and all of the other television shows and movies. As an adult, I went to his show. There was a heckler there, who wanted to engage him about his financial problems. He engaged the person, and he made a joke. We laughed. The heckler closed her mouth. He moved on and we moved on. We all thought the heckler was a loser, and she looked silly. She didn’t speak again.
Nene Leakes, Sinbad demonstrated how you handle a heckler. No apology needed because a comedian knows how to handle a heckler. There will always be somebody in the crowd who will get you to be out of yourself. They are your haters in person, and they have no shame.
The type of finesse that Sinbad and other comedians have when dealing with hecklers is based on practice. It is based on skill. It is not based on waking up one morning and looking in the mirror saying, “I think I am funny.” You have decided to think that people want to see the Real Housewives of Atlanta Nene Leakes in person. There are many people who are paying money to see this, but if this is something you really want to take seriously, let’s consider a few things:
Oakland, CA is not Los Angeles, CA. The jokes that are great in Los Angeles are not the same as Oakland. There is nothing Hollywood about Oakland. If you came to the show with the same energy you had in Los Angeles, then you should have expected not only being boo’d, but you should expect to heckled in large magnitude.
Practice. You need to practice how to act like a comedian and not a housewife. The whole, belligerent behavior is just not funny enough to look at you for long periods of time. Your comment about rape is unbelievable, and it shows that you are not a comedian. I don’t care if she is a heckler. It is unacceptable.
Don’t disrespect the long legacy of comedians with your novelty relationship you are taking with this field. Anyone can pretend to be a comedian, which is clearly you are doing. I realize it is about money, but don’t put a stain on the art of being a comedian for a dollar.
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.

Actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for his role as King T’Challa in the box office smash “Black Panther” passed away from colon cancer Friday.
The actor was first diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016, but remained active in his career with much of his work being released post-diagnosis. A statement from his family confirmed that he continued to work despite his cancer progressing, befitting a man who brought America’s first Black superhero to the silver screen.

The tributes continue to flood in as news of his passing continues to ripple through. Read the official statement from his family below.
“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
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].
