Quibi is gearing up to launch next week and there are some pretty interesting shows premiering with the streaming platform.

In case you missed it, Chance The Rapper will be hosting the reboot of Punk’d. The celebrity prank series was one of our favorites growing up, so we’re hype for the revival, in which some our new faves get punk’d. In a trailer posted to his Instagram account, we don’t get much more than we did in the announcement video, but we do see who’s targeted. Watch the clip to see Chance torture Meg Thee Stallion, Karrueche, Offset, and more.

“Sometimes laughter can bring some light,” Chance captioned the clip on his Instagram account, adding “I’ll be sharing some of my favorite moments from my new show #Punkd on @Quibi throughout the day. The show was such a blessing for us to shoot we had so much fun and i hope it can be a blessing to yall too. Stay safe everyone #socialdistancing.”

Stay tuned for more and tune into Quibi April 6, as Chrissy’s Court (starring Chrissy Teigen), Murder House Flip (a series about renovating homes where murders happened), and Thanks A Million (starring Jennifer Lopez) will also be available for your viewing pleasure.

Good news, Tupac fans, more of the late legend’s personal items are up for sale and you have the opportunity to bid on them. 

As we all know, the rapper’s life was taken in a 1996 drive-by shooting on the West Coast. His murder has gone unsolved since, with many speculating that he faked his death. Regardless of what you believe, you can at least feel closer to Pac by owning of one of his most treasured items.

“The auctioneers have numerous Tupac-related items including two bandanas, one blue and one red, reportedly worn by the late rapper. ‘Tupac Shakur owned and worn blue bandana ‘do-rag,’ they wrote in the description, mistaking the folded and tied bandana for a du-rag. ‘The bandana came from the collection of a very close family friend of Tupac’s. Very good condition.’ They’re estimated to bring in upwards of $4,000 each,” HotNewHipHop reported earlier this week, adding “Other Tupac Shakur items for sale include a Death Row Records All Eyez On Me press release, the rapper’s hotel bill from The Mondrian, his diamond nose stud, a diamond gold ring, his handwritten lyrics to an unreleased song, a handwritten letter, a handwritten poem, and more.”

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian clawing each other up has been the focal part of their new season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, but how did it get this far? On the season premiere episode, the ladies came to blows right as the credit were starting to roll. It seemed as if Kim triggered Kourtney to get up and put hands on her but it was still unclear as to how it got so heat and so fast.

In this new clip, Kourtney doubles down on why she’s DONE with Kim f*cking with her on camera. Kourtney feels as if Kim always paints the narrative that she’s “lazy” in front of production and fans and has been doing it for years. She’s asked her kindly to stop and Kim ignores it.

Kourtney thinks Kim goes out of her way to be negative towards her lifestyle on camera and Khloe’s still lost about the whole fight. Hit lay to see it.

Do you think that Kourtney’s actions are justified?

Very few people are having good luck when it comes to the coronavirus, but the one group of people who have had a few blessings come out of it have been inmates. Inmates around the world are seeing early releases from both prisons and local jails due to fears of the outbreak running rampant in prison. Of course, when the releases started happening in New York, the first thought on the mind of many is that Tekashi 6ix9ine could be coming home earlier than expected.

6ix9ine filed a motion to ask for an early release due to his medical condition and was denied at first, but then, a situation of who has the power to say no came up. After that, InnerCityPress released the full motion.

Accordingly, in light of the analysis under Section 3553(a) detailed during the defendant’s sentencing and the Court’s March 25 Order, in the event the Court finds “extraordinary and compelling reasons” presented by the defendant’s medical condition, placing him at high risk during the COVID-19 outbreak, the Government does not oppose the defendant’s motion for compassionate release.”

US does not oppose. Here was Judge Engelmayer’s morning order on April 1: “ORDER as to Daniel Hernandez: The Court has received an application from counsel for Daniel Hernandez, Dkt. 445, representing that the Bureau of Prisons has now denied his request for compassionate relief and that the Court’s review under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c) of his application to convert the balance of his term of imprisonment to a term of home confinement is now administratively proper. The Court directs that the Government respond by no later than 5 p.m. today. The parties are advised that, provided that the Court has legal authority to grant the relief requested by defense counsel, the Court intends to do so SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Paul A. Engelmayer on 4/1/2020) (lnl).”

The US Government didn’t object to his release, making him a free man amid the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s also worth noting that Kooda B, who 6ix9ine snitched on during his time on the stand, was released just a few days ago. More than likely, Tekashi will be ordered to stay away from social media once he’s release, but if not, we’re sure he’ll be the first person on Instagram Live with all of his old antics.

Look, everybody’s stressed during these uncertain times which may explain why Uncle Snoop randomly shaded our shea buttery boo thang Ari Lennox under a video of her struggling to secure a lacefront wig.

Why Snoop jumped out the window and told Ari (who has more REAL hair than most R&B singers combined) to “grow her own hair” (especially after she defended him during GayleGate), we don’t know (boredumb? Cabin fever? WEED?), but he sparked spicy Twitter chatter just months after apologizing on Jada’s Red Table talk for the same sort of shade.

UPDATE – Ari responded:

Peep the Twitter hysteria over Snoop shading Ari Lennox on the flip.

“Imagine going to bat for Snoop calling a woman out her name (because the woman asked a practical question) just for Snoop to turn around and call you a baldhead scalliwag because you put a wig on your head” – at this point, anything is possible (and by anything, we mean ANYTHING)

“Welcome back to the show, Snoop” – it’s only a matter of time

“Snoop at the red table talk when Jada scolds him again” – Snoop gave us a helluva performance the last time he was there

“Not only is he disrespecting her, he’s disrespecting my mom, my sisters, my aunts, and my cousins – I said “not Snoop” – oh yes, it’s definitely your Snoop being Snoop (AGAIN)

“This how you know Snoop don’t even KNOW who Ari Lennox is, cuz Ari has a WHOLE AFRO of natural hair. She’s prolly worn wigs 3x TOPS. Defending a man who wouldn’t even keep scrolling for you.” – that’s literally all he had to do. Scroll.

Ari *wears her long natural hair ALL THE TIME, but plays around with a wig on IG live out of boredom and to entertain her fans*

Nobody:

Not a soul:

Not even Dr Umar Johnson:

Snoop Dog: GROW YOUR OWN HAIR!!!!” – ya kinda hate to see it

“Snoop telling Ari to “grow her own hair” meanwhile his wife and daughter..” – well yea, of course

“Ari Lennox supporting Snoop Dogg disrespecting Black women by dragging Black women, only for Snoop to drag her unprovoked is a proverb.

The Lion that fights it’s own Pride to protect Hyenas, will one day be their source of food.

Didn’t y’all learn anything from the Lion King?” – tell ’em sis

“snoop said ari lennox, shea butter baby queen, needs to grow her own hair. the same ari that wears and embraces her natural hair. the same ari who doesn’t wear makeup on live. the same ari that has more hair than him. ok.” – ….yea

“Ari Lennox got time for Snoop Dogg” – she (and the rest of us) have all the time in the world until July August September?

Coronavirus Pandemic Causes Climate Of Anxiety And Changing Routines In America

Coronavirus is making some people very, very sick and making others very, very stupid.

Nurses working in the COVID response wing of INTEGRIS hospitals in Oklahoma are complaining that they have been banned from protecting themselves by any means necessary from the disease while treating infected patients.

As most of America is well aware, proper hospital supplies are drawing scarce as the 24/7 effort to heal ailing people grows more difficult every day. One nurse who spoke to KFOR under the condition of anonymity said she fears losing her job for speaking out by she fears getting sick even more.

“Now there’s just a massive overwhelming feeling of distrust,” one nurse told KFOR. “If they’re not willing to protect our lives at a fundamental level, what are they willing to do?”

She went on:

“Friday afternoon, I called my financial investment guy and I doubled my life insurance policy. Just because I have kids at home,” the nurse said. “If it’s a forgone conclusion that I will be positive at some point, I don’t have the kind of guarantee that I will be OK.”

That’s how bad Donald Trump the federal legion of bootlickers have let this pandemic get. Parents are bolstering plans to support their children after their untimely demise. S#!ts f***ed up.

When questioned about these accusations, Chief Nurse Executive at INTEGRIS Health Kerri Bayer said this:

“All caregivers have been provided appropriate PPE to take care of their patients safely based on their care setting. At this time, we have not supported utilization of PPE that is not medical grade unless it has been approved and deemed safe by the INTEGRIS System Incident Command. We understand there is concern and real fear surrounding COVID-19, therefore our clinical and infection prevention teams are actively discussing a solution to expand PPE usage for our caregivers.

We are providing PPE to our caregivers that provides evidence-based protection while they provide care. At this time, we have not supported utilization of PPE that is not medical grade unless it has been approved and deemed safe by the INTEGRIS System Incident Command.

Our number priority, always, is the safety of our patients and caregivers. This stands true in the face of a pandemic more than ever.

The masks being provided to patients and their families are the hand-sewn masks donated from the community. These are not medical grade and therefore not approved for use by our caregivers.”

Somebody got some ‘splaining to do. There are other hospitals in the area being accused of this same practice. Read the whole story on KFOR.

Today is Molly Qerim’s birthday and we couldn’t let it go by without celebrating.

The famed sports anchor, First Take moderator, and wife to former NBA player Jalen Rose turns 36 years old today and she couldn’t be more beautiful or accomplished. In case you weren’t aware, Molly’s got her BA in communications with a minor in business administration, her master’s in broadcast journalism, was an anchor and reporter for CBS, has hosted several shows (Full Court Press, the World MMA Awards, ESPN’s College Football Live, and more), and has covered several Super Bowls. The list goes on.

We love that Molly’s not above letting folks know she worked hard to get where she is.

“Obviously, I’m a female in sports. You work really hard, you prep really hard, you put a lot into the show, so when you have certain comments, and people are saying, ‘Oh you add nothing,’ or, ‘You got your job because of this.’ Really? Why don’t you look at my master’s degree?,” she’s quoted as saying.

As far as how she got into sports, she also revealed, “I grew up with sports, but I was definitely not good enough to become a professional athlete – I just loved the storytelling aspect of it.”

And in regards to those good genes, you couldn’t guess her secret weapon if your life depended on it… “I’m half Italian, and on my mom’s side, they’ve aged amazingly, and all they’ve put on their faces is olive oil,” she says.

We’ve got love and admiration for Molly, who by the way struggles with severe endometriosis — but still wakes up and chases her dreams. Check out the photos below and join us in wishing her the absolute best in love, life, and health.

1. Molly shares a selfie on Ash Wednesday.

If you haven’t seen Netflix’s newest viral sensation Tiger King, you’ve been living under a rock. The memes have dominated every social media platform and quarantine conversation this month, and the hype is only growing by the day.

The show’s biggest star was a man by the name of Joe Exotic, who, like everyone else in the doc, owned pet tigers. The difference between Joe and everyone else, though, is that he was a homosexual male who was married to two young, heterosexual men whom he provided with meth and $100 a week. Outside of cats and meth, he spent the majority of his time on the conspiracy theory that Carole Baskin killed her ex-husband and allegedly tried to have her killed which ended up landing him in jail.

Somewhere in the shocking dump of information on Joe Exotic was a failed political run, where Joe ran for office and didn’t come close to seeing a victory. This made many instantly think of Cheeto-in-Office Donald Trump, and how we as a country let ourselves elect someone just as nutty. Trevor Noah took things a step further and broke it down on The Daily Show, pointing out that the parallels between Joe and Donald might seem funny, but they are a lot closer than most might think: Both are spokespeople for misogyny, racism, and white supremacy, they want to be seen as the person who doesn’t take any s***, and more.

Watch Trevor break down his idea about Joe Exotic and Donald Trump down below:

Drake, Adonis and Sophie Brussaux

DNA is a very interesting concept. As humans, we think we can determine how our offspring will look based on how we look, but quite the contrary. Drake released never before seen photos of his son Adonis earlier this week, a woman by the name of Samantha Rushmeyer took to Twitter to show how much her baby boy look like Drake’s son.

But the real gag is, she looks exactly like Drizzy’s baby mama Sophie Brussaux.

Adonis’ baby reveal proved that folks don’t know much about how DNA works. People had lots to say about the baby’s light eyes and blonde hair:

But if you really pay attention, you realize that baby Adonis is Drizzy’s mama’s doppelganger.

Although it’s a ridiculous concept to assume that all people of one race look similar, most of us do have some distant cousins that we may not know about.

These  celebrity doppelgangers that look so much alike, they could unlock each other’s Iphone X using Face ID.

Every now and then, someone comes along with enough smarts, grace and courage to call out the government on their trifling behavior. PBS NewsHour Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor is one of those valiant people who persists in getting the truth, no matter how uneasy it may make someone.  In fact, the NBC political contributor did her job so well that it made Donald Trump super uncomfortable on Sunday during a briefing at the White House.

Things started to go left when Alcindor asked Trump about his previous comments on the number of medical supplies needed by states to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. But the Donald wasn’t pleased with her questioning his comments. He responded:

Why don’t you people — why don’t you act in a little more positive. It’s always trying to get you, and you know what, that’s why people don’t trust the media anymore.”

But Yamiche didn’t back down. She clapped back:

“Excuse me, you didn’t hear me, that’s why you used to work for the [New York] Times and now you work for somebody else”.

And in true DT form, he showed his high-key racist behind and told Alcindor, a Black Woman, : “Be nice. Don’t be threatening’”.

Then, Alcindor let it be known that “I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job.”

This isn’t the first time Trump has clashed with the news anchor, and it probably won’t be the last. And judging by these regal journalistic pics, Yamiche Alcindor is smart, powerful, Black force that is not to be played with. She must be protected at all costs.

Clark Sisters

There’s a biopic coming to Lifetime about the highest-selling female gospel group in history and their trailblazing mother.

From executive producers and Grammy Award winners Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, and Missy Elliott comes the authorized musical tale of the incomparable gospel singers, The ClarkSisters. “The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel” recounts the story of soul-stirring sisters and of their mom Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis).

Credited with bringing Gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark sisters (Christina Bell as “Twinkie,” Kierra Sheard as “Karen,” Sheléa Frazier as “Dorinda,” Raven Goodwin as “Denise,” Angela Birchett as “Jacky”) overcame humble beginnings in Detroit, enduring abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal, and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry.

For your viewing pleasure, we have a few clips. In one, Twinkie sells her musical catalog much to the chagrin of her sisters and her mom.

“I didn’t give them away I sold them,” said Twinkie who sold it for a Lincoln. “I deserve a nice car! They’re my songs y’all, I wrote them!”

“You gone look back on this day and 20 years from this day you gone feel real bad about yourself,” says Mattie Moss Clark. “Sorry ain’t gone buy one shoe, it ain’t gonna put one meal on this table.”

In another, Dorinda gets notes in the studio from her mom.
