Colin Kaepernick Never Talked To Travis Scott About The Super Bowl

Oh, things are getting MESSY messy… Earlier this week, what can only be described as an attempted Kris Jenner clean up hit the internet, with sources claiming that Travis Scott is only doing the Super Bowl halftime show because he got the green light from Colin Kaepernick before hand. Fans in support of Kaep and boycotting the NFL were surprised to hear that he would approve of such a thing, but it seemed to ease the criticism the Houston rapper has been getting since announcing his decision to perform. That is…until news broke from people close to Colin that he actually never approved of Travis’ performance in the first place. Hot 97 and Apple Music’s E Bro was the first to let the public know this information was all wrong as he retweeted the initial exclusive report from Variety, which claimed Travis Scott consulted with Colin before confirming his performance. E Bro claims that Kaep “did not approved this bulls**t!”
Not only did Colin’s girlfriend Nessa retweeted E Bro’s sentiment, adding that the people “need to stop lying” about the situation–but Kaepernick also retweeted the sentiment along with others to his own Twitter page.
Nessa kept on going with her disapproval of the aforementioned article, adding, “there is NO mutual respect and there is NO understanding for anyone working against [Kaepernick] PERIOD.”
Though the initial report states that a conversation between Kaepernick and Scott took place, the details of that actual conversation aren’t so clear–but it did imply Colin was somewhat understanding of Travis’ performance because the NFL agreed to donate $500,000 to the social justice organization Dream Corps. So there you have it. Colin Kaepernick definitely isn’t going to be singing along to “SICKOMODE” during the halftime show this year.

Rumor control…

“The Real” Hosts Deny Salary Dispute

The hosts of “The Real” recently cleared up rumors that they’re secretly beefing behind the scenes. The DailyMail recently reported that the hosts of the Warner Bros’ show are at odds in particular because of Tamera Mowry-Housley’s high salary. According to the DM, Tamera is the highest paid much to the chagrin of her cohosts Adrienne and Jeannie who allegedly asked Loni, the second-highest-paid, to fight for them to get a raise. When that didn’t happen, the DM says they threatened to have a staged walkout. Not only that the DM added that Jeannie and Adrienne think Tamera isn’t “keeping it real” about her Republican views and have grown increasingly displeased.
Mowry-Housley, 40, is reported to be raking in the most cash on the show with Loni being the second-best paid, while Adrienne and Jeannie are only being paid a third of the other women’s salaries. But Battle lines were drawn earlier this year when Mowry-Housley and Loni refused to help Adrienne and Jeannie get a raise, leading to threats of a staged walkout, a source close to the show told DailyMail.com. Further heightening tensions is the belief that Mowry-Housley ‘isn’t keeping it real’ with viewers because she refuses to acknowledge her Republican views and skirts around her support Donald Trump in the 2016 election on air.

According to the hosts themselves, however, it’s all FAKE NEWS. The ladies addressed the rumors on their show this week and said that if there WERE a beef, they’d address it themselves.
“What I love about our unit is we immediately got on the chain and left each other voicemails and video messages,” said Jeannie. “Like ‘You good?!’ “No, if it’s coming from me or one of these ladies it’ll be coming from us, we’ll tell you right here on this show!” added Loni.

Really?! Trevor Noah Hosted An Entire Episode Of ‘The Daily Show’ Without Speaking After Losing His Voice

Trevor Noah Silently Hosted The Daily Show on Tuesday

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah appeared on his nightly broadcast Tuesday as he normally does, but this time, he stayed silent throughout the episode. Trevor is battling a vocal issue and was instructed by his doctor not to speak in an effort to avoid needing surgery, which was revealed on the show. Tuesday’s episode began with Noah sitting next to comic Mike Acosta, who addressed the audience on behalf of the host. “You’ve probably noticed that this is a little different,” Acosta said, speaking as the host. “Well, what happened was, over the weekend, I lost my voice.” Acosta read the monologue for Tuesday’s show, while fellow comic Roy Wood Jr. sat down next to Noah for a later segment. Throughout the episode, Noah made hand gestures to go along with whatever his guests were saying to act as if he was still fulfilling his hosting duties.
The guest hosts did not yet reveal how long Noah is expected to be on vocal rest, or how the hosting duties will be addressed moving forward on the show. Noah was in Johannesburg, South Africa over the weekend to host a Global Citizen concert commemorating Nelson Mandela–which he partly attributes to his voice being completely gone. The 34-year-old further explained his vocal issue in an Instagram post on Tuesday night, adding that he needs to cancel some of his upcoming stand-up gigs. “I thought that my vocal cords were healed but according to the doctor, flying 36 hours and hosting a giant concert in South Africa didn’t help me,” he wrote. “So if I want to get better I have to take it seriously now so that I can perform at 100% on my new tour next year. I hate the idea of canceling shows but I also hate the idea of losing my voice forever so I’m postponing all this year’s stand up shows and working hard on rehabbing the voice.”
   

Thanks Porsha! NeNe Admits Snitching On Kandi & Says She’s Done Trusting The Ladies Of #RHOA

Who said dat????

NeNe Leakes Says Doesn’t Trust Anyone On RHOA

NeNe is all the way done with the ladies of RHOA after her big blowup with Porsha. As previously reported she and Porsha Williams exploded on each other via social media after NeNe felt her “little sis” betrayed her by telling producers that she spilled the beans on Kandi Burruss. Now, NeNe’s speaking in her Bravo blog and according to her, she’s finished and DONE trusting the ladies of RHOA, not just Porsha. NeNe’s admitting that she told Porsha what was said and added that her ex-little sis broke her trust.
“Well, obviously I did! [tell Porsha] Listen, I consider Porsha to be like a little sister. I always try to give all these girls, Porsha included, great advice. I’m always an ear or shoulder to lean on anytime! I had not met Dennis at the time when Kandi was speaking about him at the lunch. All the girls, Kandi included, felt that since I was the closest to Porsha, I should tell her the info Kandi knew. Me not wanting to get involved in others’ relationships, I told them I wouldn’t say a thing to Porsha about it. I didn’t want to say anything to Porsha. Once I had a chance to speak with Porsha privately, I told her! She also told me that I was speaking to her in confidence and that it wouldn’t go any further! I thought her word was her bond. Later when I heard that my name was being thrown around as the one who let the cat out the bag, I went to Porsha and asked her why this was being said. She said no one had used my name, and if she was asked, she would not say my name. She had my back! Look, I’m loyal to those that are loyal to me! We made a pact, and I was riding with that, because I thought her word was her bond. Well, apparently not, because she sat right in her interview and said: “NeNe told me,” which I didn’t know until I saw the show last night where Porsha revealed that I told her! What gets me is that none of these girls can be trusted, and that’s a damn shame!”
Ooop! Is NeNe wrong to give up on the ladies of RHOA??? It seems like every new season a friendship falls apart. Instagram Photo
