BABY!! Reality shows star husbands are getting locked up left and right!
Love & Hip Hop New York’s star Mendeecees Harris gets eight years after pleading guilty to drug-trafficking charges. Mendeecees Harris says he takes full responsibility in an Instagram post.
I want you all to understand something. I completely accept responsibility for all that is going on. My transition to be a better person a productive person started well before this case. However in my past I made some bad decisions. Young men let my life be an example to you now before it’s too late. Better who you are now in your children’s lives and in society so you can change the path of your fate. Lack of opportunities, a fatherless home, the unforgiven neighborhood and circumstances you grew up in can no longer be your excuse. Trust me I tried. And it doesn’t make the pain your family feels any different. Young man educate your self and break the cycle. Don’t become a number on the DOA (dead on arrival) list or on the incarceration list. To my wife and children you are all strong and well prepared for this. This is just another brick laid down towards our house of happily ever after , walk with your head held high knowing I would never past the buck and put another family through what we have endured. Continue to walk in faith and love as you’ve done so well. To my peoples thank you for all the encouragement and support please continue to encourage my family. Thank you again all.
When I first heard the news I didn’t feel sorry for him. I just didn’t quite get why people were feeling sorry and praying for him. Not to mention, that I’ve never met this man and never watched Love & Hip Hop New York. Incarceration sometimes destroys families. and Secondly, this man has kids and a family makes me feel a little sympathy for him. We don’t know what motivated him to do what he did. If he is willing to accept what he did was wrong that makes him a good man in my eyes.
My girl KMichelle also had some encouraging words for him and his family.
Where do I start? It’s late and I’m just leaving the studio but honestly this is heavy on my heart. @yandysmith and @mendeecees I respect u both dearly. Yandy, your dedication and love for your husband is not only motivational to me but inspiring. I’ve been in several relationships but never truly valued love. My motto has been hurt them, before they hurt me. After being apart of your wedding and just witnessing the loyalty and determination to not give up on love and make your family work it opened my eyes. I realized I was loving wrong. Love isn’t for cowards and that’s what I was a coward numb to any emotion. My words were just lies to play the role. I can honestly say I had NEVER truly been in love with any man in my life. I just hated sleeping alone. We all make mistakes and even though @mendeecees is having to pay for them now, his fight to get his life right and love his family is so promising and real. You guys are the definition on REAL black love. In a world where men would much rather run from commitment and think it’s cool to collect hearts you guys are the real deal. The last four months I decided to be honest with myself and finally let my guard down and try out love, and I must say you guys gave me the courage to do that. Who knows what will happen, but I do know I won’t be settling or accepting anything other than the purest and ultimate attention, time, and respect towards me, and I will do the same. And if they can’t be that to me, there’s no me in the equation. You guys rock. Kiss the babies, me and Sklar still have an ice cream date coming up! Allow this test to be your testimony and inspire others. I Love yall❤️ Time will fly he will be home before you know it Yandy❤️ A photo posted by K. Michelle (@kmichellemusic) on
Let’s wish Mendeeecess the best. Furthermore, I hope his message “touch n agree” with some to understand that for every action there is a reaction.
Do you think Mendeecees will serve all eight years?
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.
Chadwick Boseman Passes Away At 43
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.
As the news of the actor’s death spread, many took to social media to share their condolences.
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].
