It’s a wrap!

Are Dr. Simone And Cecil Calling Off Their Divorce?

People are wondering if things are really a wrap between two “Married To Medicine” stars. As previously reported Dr. Simone announced that she was calling off her marriage to her husband Cecil 21 years.

And after revealing that a huge blowup caused strife in their union, Dr. Simone told Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” that her husband’s unwillingness to sacrifice ultimately led to their split.

“Cecil had just not been willing to compromise and sacrifice and in marriage, it takes a team to make it work. Toya and Jackie they have been really a rock for me and you know, trying to talk me down from the ledge.”

Despite Simone’s comments, her hubby Cecil looks like he’s not ready to throw in the towels. He told a fan that they’re “talking and working on saving their marriage.”

Do YOU think Dr. Simone and Cecil will reconcile?

Quincy Jones Issues Public Apology For “Word Vomit” In Interviews

A few weeks ago Quincy Jones set the world on fire with back-to-back BLAZING hot interviews that managed to shed light on a plethora of public personas, including Michael Jackson, Marlon Brando, The Beatles, Ivanka Trump, Richard Pryor and Marvin Gaye. Well it seems after some time and a dressing down by his daughters he’s realized that he may have gone too far.

Quincy took to Twitter to apologize.

Notice he’s saying sorry, but not that any of it wasn’t true. And we also noticed he put bowlegged in there. Think he’s shopping for some more girlfriends?

Snoop Dogg and Tami Roman are teaming up to bring the laughs in a new late night television show. Also, Tami tells TheYBF.com how she felt about Cardi B clapping back at her over her pregnancy joke. Get it all inside...

Get ready to whip out your bonnets and headscarves!

Snoop Dogg and Tami Roman, both known to hop on social media with their hair wrapped up in the finest bonnets and scarf your beauty supply store can offer, are teaming up for a new late night show. The is talking duo will bring their antics to a variety show loosely based on their social media personas for the tentatively titled show, “Get Into It…Forizzle,” hosted by the “Basketball Wives” star.

Tami has been bringing the laughs with her “Bonnet Chronicles” mini-web series where she basically says what we’re all thinking about topics that are trending. Meanwhile, Snoop isn’t a stranger to hop on Instagram rocking a scarf talking about whatever is on his mind at the time.

And yes, they are supposedly wearing their bonnets and headscarves on the show. Allegedly.

We hear the show will feature comedy sketches, celebrity interviews, hot topics and more.

“Snoop and I are teaming up to bring the funny and I am ecstatic!” the reality star told VIBE. “He is a legend who is blessing me with this opportunity to expand. His willingness to partner on this venture is humbling and we are about to make magic.”

The show will be executive produced by Snoop and his wife Shante Broadus, Tami, Jill Ramsey (Wendy Williams Productions and co-executive producers include Ernest Dukes (Keyshia Cole, All In) and Danika Berry (The Cromartie’s).

No word just yet on when it will hit our televisions, but we’ll keep you posted.

Speaking of Bonnet Chronicles…

In a recent installment of Tami’s social media commentary, she made a joke about Cardi B looking pregnant and the Bronx rapper was NOT happy about it.

“I really like Cardi,” Tami said in a video. “But in the pictures, you look pregnant.”

“Now I know you just said you were getting fat,” she continued. “And that’s ok, too, but I’m just saying it looks pregnant. That pregnant lady belly, that’s what it looks like. About 2 or 3 months, I don’t know.”

Someone tipped Cardi off about her comments and she was PISSED. Here’s what she said:

“I don’t ever talk about other people! I be talking my sh*t but not about others especially if I don’t know you… Whyyyy is my name in your f*king mouth? Do I make you a check? Do I f*ck you? Am I eating your p*ssy? Am I helping you find a job? So why Cardi B be in your f*cking mouth?”

Yikes.

Well, YBF correspondent Shayla Raye caught up with the actress on the carpet during BET’s Social Awards to ask her what she thought about Cardi’s response.

Also, there were rumors going around that Tami broke up with her boyfriend Reggie Youngblood, but she talked to us (in above video) about her Valentine's Day plans with her beau. So everything must be all good.

And they also responded on social media:

Ne-Yo’s Wife Dragged For Shading Son’s Hair Texture, Then Claps Back With A Kiddie Hair Line

Crystal Smith is clapping back at critics who gathered in her comments after she described the difficulty in styling her son’s kink-n-coils. The semantics of the caption really rubbed folks backwards after saying her son wasn’t blessed like mommy with her “Hawaiian silky.”

Crystal posted and then deleted:

So my son wasn’t blessed with Mommy’s “Hawaiian silk” as my sister likes to say. Can anyone suggest some good products or moisturizers? Nothing I’ve tried will help the dryness. His hair seems to soak up everything instantly.

Folks immediately checked her for the “wasn’t blessed” part, saying that he IS blessed and an array of negative criticism. Now Crystal seems to be turning lemons into lemonade.

“Thank you guys for the negativity, because once again I’m going to channel it into something positive and I am now in the process of creating a hair care line for mixed children…so thank you once again.”

Jordan Peele is known to take things to the next level and this Hitchcock inspired photoshoot with Janelle Monae for W magazine certainly fits the bill. Get into the private investigator realness, then see Black Panther stars Lupita Nyong’o and Chadwick Boseman praise each other on social media inside…

 photo jan1.jpg

Who says a black woman can’t kick a** as a private investigator? Don’t tell Jordan Peele she can’t because he’ll prove you wrong.

 photo jan2.jpg

The award winning director is the force behind this Hitchcock inspired “Noir Town” photoshoot for W magazine, starring the gorgeous Janelle Monae. The WONDALAND honcho flexed her P.I. skills in a gray Michael Kors suit, paying homage to the Hitchcock movies as Jordan guided her through the shoot.

 photo jan11.jpg

 photo jan7.png

“I wanted to create a Hitchcock moment that doesn’t really exist in a Hitchcock film,” the 39-year-old writer and director of Get Out.

And he totally gets it. Not only did he want to feature a woman as the “hero” (not heroine), he specifically chose a female photographer, Collier Schorr, to shoot the project.

FUN FACT: Jordan Peele just celebrated his birthday yesterday.

 photo jan4.png

 photo jan9.png

“I didn’t want the Hitchcock heroine,” he explained. “I wanted the Hitchcock hero. That way, we can reclaim this movie that we never got to see. The fear of gender and race robs us of beautiful pieces of film. I’ve come to think of gender and race as related in a civil rights sense.”

 photo jan5.png

“The scene: A private investigator is standing in a clock tower taking photographs of a parade. She is a woman, played by Janelle Monáe, and she is searching for clues to a murder. As the detective stares through the lens, she begins to realize that one of the bystanders on the ground looks exactly like her. Then she sees another identical face. And another. Suddenly, the sea of potential suspects are visions of herself. Are these women good? Are they evil? And why are these twinlike alter egos haunting her?”

 photo jan10.jpg

Here’s what it was like with Jordan directing Janelle on the set:

In this scene, Peele said, the evil influencers were getting closer to Monáe’s character. The detective was being observed and stalked by her dark-side others. As Peele told his crew to play the lush Bernard Herrmann soundtrack from Vertigo to create atmosphere, Monáe clung to an ornate elevator door. Peele spoke softly to her, “You just fired your gun. You’d kill anyone for $10,000. And you have been shot. You are collapsing. Your feelings are overwhelming.” Peele paused as Monáe fell in slow motion. “So great,” he said in an almost whisper. “Putting Janelle in that character is all you need to create my new favorite movie.”

What an epic shoot.

Speaking of paying homage...

As Black Panther dominates the box office with record breaking numbers, star Lupita Nyong’o praised her co-star Chadwick Boseman as “our king,” leading the way in breaking down race barriers.

The YBF actress recreated Chadwick’s recent Rolling Stone cover with a caption gushing over the actor.

“Imitation is the best form of flattery: @chadwickboseman I admire your quiet, confident, regal nature. You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T'Challa,” she wrote.

“You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretense, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen. And I will never get enough of the way you say the word "because." We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king. Enkosi Kumkani!! And congratulations on your @rollingstone cover. From someone who loves you.”

Aww!

Chadwick went comment creeping and offered up a sweet response to her tribute. Read it below:

Too cute.

Yesterday...

 

Lupita joined the #BlackPantherChallenge and sent 600 children in Kenya (where she was born) to see the film. Nice!

Issa vacation!

Some quality time away from a busy schedule and kids is always needed when you’re a married couple.

Lovebirds Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz left the kiddies behind for a romantic getaway in Cabo San Lucas. The hot mom kept it cool in a red bathing suit with a Louis Vuitton scarf wrapped around her waist. Her hubby was color coordinating with a red polo style shirt and gray shorts.

The twosome was spotted hanging out on the deck of whatever luxury spot they’re spending their alone time. The superproducer was totally relaxed while puffing on a cigar and sipping on a drink. Then, he treated his wife with an intimate back rub before she hopped on the phone.

Lyrica Anderson And A1 Call It Quits?

Reality TV couple Lyrica Anderson and A1 seem to have called it quits. Lyrica herself is stirring the pot online with an IG post were she used the hashtag “single” and said she wished she would’ve kept a “side n-gga”.

Instagram Photo

Folks are insinuating that the couple is just trying to stir up a story for reality TV, but sources say not so fast…A1 was supposedly caught creepin’ on lyrica according to folks at The Shade Room.

Allegedly, A1 and his boy ran into some girls and started vibing with the girl pictured on the right. They brought the girls to the hotel room and tried to have them sign a bootleg contract stating they couldn’t speak to the media. Then some adultery went down and they told the girls they had to leave shortly after. As usual the girls had pics and receipts.

Here’s one of the alleged side pieces, with her face blurred.

Oh welp, maybe All Star Weekend in LA really did ruin someone’s relationship. Maybe they will bounce back?
