Swagg: NeNe Leakes Not Currently Filming RHOA, Working On ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Style Show (Exclusive)

NeNe Leakes Working On RHOA Spinoff

Yes, the rumors are true. NeNe Leakes is not currently filming RHOA but there’s a good reason why.

In case you’re behind on what’s going on behind the scenes on season 12, LoveBScott reported that NeNe hasn’t filmed with any of the ladies yet, citing her behavior during that closet fiasco that ended with a ripped shirt for a cameraman and allegedly broken tooth.

“For that reason, in addition to NeNe’s ‘bad attitude’ in dealing with producers and execs behind the scenes, sources tell lovebscott.com that NeNe has been forced to “sit out” for at least the first part of the season — maybe longer — as the ladies begin filming.”

And while a rep for NeNe denied that she’s being punished for her behavior and just in “contract negotiations”,  we can report that NeNe is indeed not currently filming and working on her contract—–but for something else.

A source tells BOSSIP that the RHOA OG is working on a contract for a spinoff show centered around her Swagg Boutique. NeNe opened her Swagg Boutique in the MGM National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Maryland back in May…

and we hear that cameras are rolling for pre-production centering around the boutique’s staff.

The source tells us that the show will be like Lisa Vanderpump’s famed “Vanderpump Rules” and follow NeNe’s sales associates as they “work, party and deal with drama.”

A post shared by Nene Leakes (@neneleakes) on

This is especially interesting considering that NeNe’s accused Lisa Vanderpump of stealing her idea for her PUMP restaurant which later blossomed into a TV show. NeNe previously claimed that her fellow Bravo star advised her against opening a bar in West Hollywood calling it a “dump” before going back and buying it herself.

NeNe has another Swagg location in Atlanta and a smaller Swaggalicious boutique in Miami so there’s room for the show to become a franchise if the show is a success. It should be noted however that NeNe WILL be back on RHOA season 12 which will include Kenya Moore whose presence spurned that BIG Cynthia Bailey/NeNe Leakes blowup. 

Would YOU watch a “Vanderpump Rules” style NeNe spinoff???

Jesus Take The Medical License: Man Sues Doctor For Allegedly Leaving 57-Inch Wire In His Body

Man Accuses Doctor Of Leaving 57-Inch Wire In His Body Fourteen Years Ago

So one Las Vegas man unknowingly had a whole a$$ metal wire in his body, and now he wants to hold the responsible parties accountable.

According to Las Vegas Review-Journal, German “OT” Ortiz lived for a decade without knowing a 57-inch metal wire was running through his body. When a doctor told him in 2015 that he needed surgery to clear blood clots, an X-ray showed the wire stretching down his aorta, from his chest to his thigh, according to his attorney James Jimmerson.

Ortiz’s lawyers are now asking a jury to award him upward of $800,000 from Mark Taylor, the cardiologist who did a 2005 angioplasty, and Heart Center of Nevada, the company he runs.

Ortiz is a 70-year-old man who serves as a youth pastor at Cornerstone Christian Academy and Preschool. A year ago, medical professionals removed two-thirds of the wire inside him for a heart procedure, according to Jimmerson. Now, more than 20 inches remain in his thigh.

Ortiz experienced this whole fiasco when he was rushed to the University Medical Center emergency room 14 years ago after experiencing shortness of breath. Doctors explained that he had congestive heart failure and required an angiogram, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in 2016.

In an angiogram procedure, a catheter is inserted through the bloodstream to spread a dye that lets doctors take photographs of blood vessels, Jimmerson explained to jurors, holding a sample of a wire used to keep the catheter stiff. In Ortiz’s situation, when the catheter was removed, a guide wire remained in his body, according to the suit.

The suit alleges medical malpractice, negligent infliction of emotional distress, professional negligence, negligent hiring, training and supervision, and loss of consortium.

Mark Taylor’s lawyer, Patricia Daehnke, argues that another doctor must have left the wire inside Ortiz, claiming that Taylor was never informed that the guide wire had been lost.

“Dr. Taylor met the standard of care and in no way was negligent or un-careful in his cardiology,” she said, pointing to notes from the procedure Taylor carried out. “We’re not here to pin responsibility on Dr. Taylor. We’re here to present the evidence to you.”

Jimmerson asked jurors to hold Taylor and his company accountable for causing “pain, anxiety and the probability of future surgery for blood clots.”

“A doctor must pay careful attention during a procedure,” Jimmerson said. “If a doctor does not pay careful attention during a procedure, the doctor is responsible for the injuries caused.”

Missy Elliott Inducted Into The Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Congrats are in order for a true legend!

Missy Elliott is officially the FIRST female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In a taped tribute at Thursday’s ceremony in NYC, President Barack Obama thanked the icon for all she’s given to music and our community.

From The Daily Beast:

“Missy, I want to thank you for all of your trailblazing ways,” [President Obama] said. “Thank you not for just sharing your gift with the world, but for being an advocate for so many people out there, especially young girls who are still figuring out how to make their voices heard.” Holding back tears, Elliott, who has fought health problems related to Graves disease in recent years, told the audience: “Every time I come up to a podium even with all the work that I’ve done, I don’t know, and I’m assuming it’s just God, I don’t know why I am here… I am thankful.”

Missy also shared a video in front of her Times Square billboard. It reads “Thank you Missy Elliott for 20 years of writing fearless hits.”

Salute the queen, plus more photos from her groundbreaking night on the flip.

Kimmy Brought Her Criminal-Reforming Cakes To The White House & Blew Up Twitter

Kimmy Cakes Returns To White House & Shatters Twitter

The honorable Kimberly Kardashian returned to the White House to discuss the Second Chance Act–a landmark program that offers Lyft gift cards to help former prisoners travel to job interviews and find work–and other criminal justice initiatives.

And if you’re a smidge skeptical, we are too, especially when she commends President Cheeto Face for being compassionate about prison reform (WHAT???) but we’ll give her props (and a cookie) for using her massive platform to effect change in the community.

F**k 12: Punk A$$ Phoenix Cops Threaten To Murder Pregnant Black Mother Because Daughter Accidentally Stole A Barbie

Immigration Law Supporters Hold Rally At Arizona State Capitol

Source: John Moore / Getty

Phoenix Cops Caught On Viral Video Threatening Pregnant Black Woman

Listen, we’ve seen a LOT of videos of police abusing their authority while attempting to bully and intimidate innocent Black people. It’s hard to say that we’ve seen footage that enraged us to this degree.

The following video clip of some Phoenix, Arizona cops threatening MULTIPLES TIMES to kill a pregnant Black mother in front of her children is currently going BIG viral on social media. It’s very hard to watch.

According to 12News, Dravon Ames and his fiancé Iesha Harper were shopping with their daughters, ages 1 and 4, when the eldest girl took a Barbie doll and put it in her backpack. After leaving the store and driving to a nearby apartment complex, some wildly overaggressive police confronted them about the “theft” and this is what happened…

We’re LIVID.

The b!t¢ha$$ pigs released the following statement via Facebook regarding the incident:

“On June 11, 2019, we were provided video of an officer taking two individuals into custody while investigating a shoplifting incident in the area of 3200 East Roosevelt Street. This occurred after the suspect vehicle was stopped a short distance from the scene of the theft. The Phoenix Police Department takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and for this reason, this incident is currently being investigated by the Professional Standards Bureau.”

Weak. Fire these pieces of s#!t and never allow them to be in positions of legal authority ever again.

Fixt It, Jesus: Apollo Nida Rearrested Just NINE DAYS After Release From Federal Prison

Apollo Nida Rearrested

Apollo Nida is back in prison, ya hate to see it. Page Six reports that the former RHOA husband was rearrested just 9 days after he was released from federal prison to a Philadelphia halfway house.

“He was taken back into custody. I wouldn’t say it was an arrest because it’s not a new charge,” a representative of the US Marshals Service told Page Six.

“It was an order of the court to bring him into custody,” the representative explained, noting that he was in trouble for breaking a technical condition of his release.

“We took him to Federal Bureau of Prisons and they will deal with it since he was in their custody.”

No word yet on what the “technical condition” was.

Apollo’s sentence is scheduled to end on October 15, 2019, no word yet on if his rearrest will affect that date.

His fiancee Sherien Almufti has since spoken out and she’s blaming Apollo’s “jealous” parole officer for Apollo’s lockup.

“For those who are confused @apollonida03 didn’t violate a goddamn thing,” wrote the realtor. “Another crime against a black man in the system. ealously is a disease and his PO will die mad!! 🤷🏼‍♀️

Oh really, sis???

What do YOU think about Apollo Nida going back to jail?

#BlackGirlMagic Tracee Ellis Ross To Executive Produce & Star In ‘Daria’ Spinoff ‘Jodie’

Tracee Ellis Ross

Source: Pap Nation / Splash News

Tracee Ellis Ross Will Star In & Executive Produce ‘Daria’ Spinoff ‘Jodie’

Tracee Ellis Ross is taking the lead on a new series stemming from a celebrated MTV show.

According to Deadline, the Black-ish star will executive produce and star in the adult animated comedy Jodie. It’s the first in a series of spinoffs from the MTV franchise Daria. Ross will voice the character of Jodie.

Daria ran from 1997 to 2002 for five season and was a spin-off in its own right from another MTV hit Beavis and Butthead. Daria Morgendorffer was a character who shelled out dry wisdom beyond her high school years, and she was praised for her feminist take on issues such as race, class and gender.

Jodie is created and written by Grace Nkenge Edwards who earned her stripes on shows like Insecure and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It will center around Daria’s good friend Jodie Landon, a Black character from the original series who’s credited with helping shape the minds of a generation of women. In her new show, Jodie will enter the tech world as her first job out of college. Other former students of Lawndale High will also make cameos on the show.

Jodie plans on satirizing generation Z struggles, workplace culture and of course the trials and tribulations of social media. Such themes like gender and racial empowerment will be the name of the game mixed in with a sharp sense of humor. It will be the first adult animated sitcom to center around a Black female lead in almost two decades.

“I am thrilled to bring this project to life with MTV, both as executive producer and by voicing Jodie’s character,” said Ross. “Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories of young women excites me. ‘Jodie,’ will spin-off from the cult classic ‘Daria,’ and with the brilliant, sweet and sarcastic Black girl magic that is Jodie Landon, we will feature a diverse cast, comprised mainly of unapologetically smart and ambitious young female characters who are vulnerable and flawed and interesting and funny.”

We’ll continue to keep you posted when a release date and trailer is on its way.

Tracee Ellis Ross is taking the lead on a new series stemming from a celebrated MTV show.

According to Deadline, the Black-ish star will executive produce and star in the adult animated comedy Jodie. It’s the first in a series of spinoffs from the MTV franchise Daria. Ross will voice the character of Jodie.

Daria ran from 1997 to 2002 for five season and was a spin-off in its own right from another MTV hit Beavis and Butthead. Daria Morgendorffer was a character who shelled out dry wisdom beyond her high school years, and she was praised for her feminist take on issues such as race, class and gender.

Jodie is created and written by Grace Nkenge Edwards who earned her stripes on shows like Insecure and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It will center around Daria’s good friend Jodie Landon, a Black character from the original series who’s credited with helping shape the minds of a generation of women. In her new show, Jodie will enter the tech world as her first job out of college. Other former students of Lawndale High will also make cameos on the show.

Jodie plans on satirizing generation Z struggles, workplace culture and of course the trials and tribulations of social media. Such themes like gender and racial empowerment will be the name of the game mixed in with a sharp sense of humor. It will be the first adult animated sitcom to center around a Black female lead in almost two decades.

“I am thrilled to bring this project to life with MTV, both as executive producer and by voicing Jodie’s character,” said Ross. “Being able to give voice to fresh, feminist and unexplored stories of young women excites me. ‘Jodie,’ will spin-off from the cult classic ‘Daria,’ and with the brilliant, sweet and sarcastic Black girl magic that is Jodie Landon, we will feature a diverse cast, comprised mainly of unapologetically smart and ambitious young female characters who are vulnerable and flawed and interesting and funny.”

We’ll continue to keep you posted when a release date and trailer is on its way.

You Ain’t Got To Lie Khloe: Eyewitness Confirms Kardashian Attended Kevin Hart’s Wedding Where Tristan Thompson Was With Pregnant Jordan Craig

Was Khloe’s Truth A Whole Lie

Earlier this week Khloe Kardashian attempted to do damage control as the innerwebs were full of reports that her relationship with Tristan Thompson caused pregnancy complications for Thompson’s ex, Jordan Craig, who was five months pregnant when Kardashian began dating Thompson. But now RadarOnline is poking holes all over Khloe’s “truths,” or rather claims that Thompson and Craig were broken up “long” before Khloe met Tristan — namely by noting that they’ve viewed footage of Thompson, 28 and Craig, 27, seated side by side at Kevin Hart’s wedding to Eniko Parrish. An eyewitness for the tabloid also alleges that Kardashian was at the same wedding on August 13, 2016 with Trey Songz.

“Khloe was there,” the witness confirmed. “She is in a ton of photos and videos from [Kevin Hart’s] wedding. Khloe went with Trey Songz.”

Just two weeks after that wedding, on August 28, 2016, Tristan and Khloe were seen together for the first time at a Los Angeles club.

Is it possible that Khloe never noticed Jordy or her bump with Tristan? Or perhaps that she didn’t see or speak to Tristan at Kevin Hart’s wedding? Or do you think Khloe just didn’t give a damn?
