NeNe Leakes is supporting Porsha Williams amid reports that the latter engaged in a physical altercation on the set of a reunion filming for their show, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Williams, 32, reportedly got into a physical fight with fellow cast member and 43-year-old former beauty queen Kenya Moore during the Bravo TV reality television series' reunion special. After Moore continued to mock Williams' public divorce from former NFL player Kordell Stewart, Radar Online is reporting that the latter went into attack mode.
"(Porsha) is a little thing and she jumped on her and pulled her down to the ground by her hair, and Kenya doesn't have a weave, it is all her own hair," a source reportedly told Radar Online. more >>
President Jimmy Carter has publicly denounced sex-selective abortion, considering it part of the global oppression of women.
In an interview with David Letterman on Monday, the 89-year-old former president said that sex-selective abortion and infanticide of female babies was the "worst human rights abuse on earth."
"160 million girls are now missing from the face of the earth because they were murdered at birth by their parents or either selectively aborted when their parents find out that the fetus is a girl," said Carter. more >>
Kevin Sorbo, the actor who stars in the newly released "God's Not Dead" film, says he is on Hollywood's blacklist for simply having a conservative view on politics and social issues, which has ultimately cost him acting jobs.
"I'm not a party guy. There are people on both sides of the political fence that I don't agree with. To me, I look to see who I honestly think is going to be the best person. So, that, in itself, is enough to get me blacklisted in Hollywood," Sorbo said, according to The Epoch Times. "They (Hollywood) scream for tolerance, they scream for freedom of speech but if you disagree at all with what they're saying then they can blacklist you. They have the power to do that."
Sorbo considers himself one of the very few actors in Hollywood brave enough to voice his political opinion, and admits to voting Democratic and Republican. He also says he receives a lot of backlash for being Christian. more >>
The writer of "Alice in Arabia" is speaking out about her project, which she says is "pro-tolerance" and not stereotypical. The show was cancelled by ABC Family before it even hit the airwaves due to concern by Muslim advocacy groups and the general public.
Brooke Eikmeier wrote of her disappointment and what she had truly hoped that the show would accomplish in a column written for The Hollywood Reporter. She previously worked on "Family Guy" and "Boston Legal" before enlisting in the U.S. Army, which is where she got the idea for the show "Alice in Arabia."
"The genesis of 'Alice in Arabia' lay in the deep frustration I felt while studying the Arabic language in the Army," Eikmeier wrote. "I was particularly struck by the struggle of women, especially in Saudi Arabia. I knew many were fulfilled and proud of their way of life, but there were others who wanted things that I had taken for granted as an American – for example, a legal system that gives you the right to have a woman defend you in court when you bring a rape case, or for the culture to allow you to bring the case without prejudice in the first place." more >>
Oprah Winfrey will be touring the U.S. this fall to help "lead people to an empathy space… a gratitude space" in an effort to find their calling and fulfill their greatest potential. Helping Winfrey in the tour hitting cities on both coasts will be influential and controversial Christian author Rob Bell, and other "handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons."
"All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space," said Winfrey in a press statement. "I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it."
Each stop on the national tour will run two days, with the first night featuring Winfrey "bringing her personal story and insights to life in a one of a kind intimate evening" and the following will have the media mogul and Bell, or another one of her handpicked guests, "lead a day-long gathering of thousands." more >>
Evelyn Lozada is not happy with Wendy Williams' recent comments toward her and wants the world to know.
Lozada, the 38-year-old entrepreneur who gained popularity on "Basketball Wives", recently gave birth to MLB star Carl Crawford's son. However, talk show host Williams had some less than nice comments to make about the matter.
"And by the way Evelyn, very smart to name the boy Carl Lee Crawford Jr. just to make ol' cash register over here feel well...You should become involved in a lot of charity work and talk to your man about opening you up another Dulcé," Williams said on her talk show. "Except Dulcé Beverly Hills, not Dulcé Miami. That was her shoe store that she had, remember? Then she got involved in all the shenanigans on 'Basketball Wives.'" more >>
