The Wendy Williams Show just wrapped its tumultuous 10th season. And while the show will be back for season 11, it’s likely that it will be the last one. A source that given Wendy Williams’ personal issues and health concerns, many of the staffers believe it’s time to move on and don’t anticipate the show being renewed past the 2019-2020 season. “This was an extremely difficult season to get through for the staff and Wendy herself, obviously. With the show’s renewal set to end after the 2019-2020 season, everyone thinks it’s the perfect time to say goodbye move on. “Wendy has enough going on as it is and honestly no one, including Wendy, is sure she can even make it through season 11. Not to mention, advertisers consider her to be a ‘risk’ due to her unplanned hiatuses and extended breaks. It’s very likely the show won’t be back.” During what should have been a celebration of the milestone 10th season, the past year has been “hell” as Williams herself described it on the last episode of the season. The host fractured her shoulder, slurred her words on-camera, had to take an extended two-month-long hiatus due to Graves’ Disease, for addiction treatment, and it all culminated in Williams from cheating husband/manager Kevin Hunter, which has all played out in the tabloids. “This season has been, well, hell for me,” Williams admitted on the season finale. “I appreciate doing this show because it’s my one hour where I get to be fun and forget about stuff,” she continued. “But through it all, my one joy—aside from my son and my family—is you. I’m not doing this show forever, but I will certainly be back for season 11.” In addition to B. Scott’s source and Williams’ “not doing the show forever” comment, Page Six is also reporting that some of the Wendy show staffers are already . A source revealed: “They are all well aware that all they have is Season 11 left, that’s guaranteed, but until [production company] Debmar-Mercury announces that they are renewing additional seasons beyond the next season, some staff have begun searching for jobs.” A spokesperson for the show offered a spin, simply stating: “Wendy and her staff are closer than ever.” However, the statement did not mention the show’s future past season 11. Season 11 of The Wendy Williams Show premieres September 16. is a post from:

The Stand: Stephen King writing new ending to limited series adaptation Stephen King’s 1978 post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel is being adapted into a new limited series for CBS All Access. But will set this series apart from its 1994 counterpart, and the novel itself, is a new ending, which will be penned by King himself. As reported by , King is writing the script for the ninth episode of the series, which CBS All Access EVP Julie McNamara said will include “a new coda that won’t be found in the book.” “For fans of the book who have wondered what became of the survivors of the stand, this episode will contain a story that takes us beyond the book to answer those questions. A continuation to The Stand; we can’t wait to share that with the world.” The 10 episode series from writers (The Fault in Our Stars, The New Mutants) and (SEAL Team), reveals that this is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after, a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides — or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abigail — and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man. Boone, who has been developing the project for years, will also direct the series for CBS Television Studios. Boone, Roy Lee, Jimmy Miller, Richard P. Rubinstein, and Cavell will executive produce. Will Weiske and Miri Yoon will co-executive produce with Owen King serving as producer. The post appeared first on .

The never-ending saga of Robert Sylvester Kelly’s court woes in relation to his pedophilia is like a daytime soap opera that you pray will just get canceled and go away, but it keeps on getting renewed season after season. Last time we checked in with R. Kelly, for sex trafficking and sex with a minor. Most of us thought this was the final countdown for Robert because once the feds get ya, it’s usually a wrap. But Robert seems to think his old-ass shenanigans, like the he threw in front of Gayle King, will work to convince the federal judge who already his trifling ass bail. According to , R. Kelly’s attorneys pleaded on behalf of their client to have the judge reconsider his decision to deny him the opportunity to post bond. He also threw in that he would avoid contact with minors. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly is asking the judge to reconsider the decision denying him bond in his federal case out of the Eastern District of Illinois. The disgraced singer is trying to argue that he is not a flight risk due to his lack of resources, aka he’s broke. Kelly’s legal team states, “Mr. Kelly no longer has the money or the entourage he once did to help him in his endeavors.” The R&B star is willing to submit to electronic monitoring and home incarceration. He offers terms that would include no contact with minors and limited access to the Internet, which his team says will, “make it virtually impossible to attempt to contact any witnesses without being caught.” I mean, the fact that he’s willingly asking for an ankle bracelet is impressive, but Robert has to realize that after 20 years of getting charged, locked up and tried for having inappropriate contact with minors, it’s gonna take more than just his word to convince a judge that he’s really gonna leave these little girls alone this time. is a post from:

A kidnapping investigation quickly turned into a homicide investigation after Los Angeles police were made aware of video footage showing a man accused of kidnapping his missing girlfriend rapping about killing her and burying her body. that a video filmed early Tuesday morning (Jul. 30) just hours before 27-year-old Monrovia kidnapping suspect Robert Anthony Camou was taken into police custody appears to show him participating in an open mic event at a local bar. “I killed my b*tch and buried that b*tch in the f**king dirt,” Camou rapped about his girlfriend, 31-year-old Amanda Kathleen Custer, who had been missing since Monday. He then mumbled a few words about being “out” because the cops are looking for him before walking out of the view of the camera. The people around him were visibly disturbed. Police said they were aware of the video’s existence and were trying to get ahold of the original footage to make sure it hasn’t been edited. “We want to make sure it’s unedited,” Deputy Trina Schrader, a spokeswoman for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, . “If it’s edited, then in court people can poke holes in it.” The man who recorded the video told reporters he had no idea who he was filming until he saw Camou on TV being arrested the next day. “At first it was like, did he say that? He said that. And he said it with such force,” Michael R. Moore . Moore said when Camou noticed he was being recorded, he stepped forward and stared straight into the camera. He said everyone in the bar was frozen with shock. “I think that everyone in the bar that heard him kinda stopped. Time just stopped. And there were some hardcore rappers up in there, and they stopped,” Moore said. Moore said after walking off the stage, Camou came up to him and asked him where he was going to post the video. Moore said he told Camou he would be sharing it across all of his social media accounts, and Camou was, oddly, OK with it. “He said that was cool,” Moore said. Robert Camou became the subject of a kidnapping investigation Monday (Jul. 29) when police found blood in his home in Monrovia after responding to a domestic violence call. Camou’s girlfriend, Amanda Custer, was nowhere to be found. Investigators believe Camou assaulted Custer and took her from the home against her will. A witness told police they saw Camou putting Custer’s limp body in the cargo hatch of his Toyota Prius early Monday morning. It was the last time she was seen alive. Camou was arrested Tuesday morning following a five-hour standoff in which he remained in the backseat of his vehicle. Police said Camou didn’t exit the vehicle until after they shot tear gas into the car. Authorities said Camou was scheduled to appear in court the day Custer went missing for charges related to an April 22nd incident, but he never showed up. He had also previously been charged with four felony counts, including burglary and assault and battery, per court documents filed on May 29th. At the time Custer went missing, police said Camou was out on bail on domestic violence charges, and the victim in that case is also Amanda Custer (pictured below). Police said Custer and Camou had been dating for the past two years, and throughout the course of their relationship, there were numerous allegations of domestic violence. A restraining order filed by Custer back in February detailed Camou’s alleged obsessive behavior. “He has made over 100 (phone) numbers to verbally bash me,” Custer said at the time. She also described an uninvited visit to her home by Camou: “He turned around, came running at my window, and broke my double-pane window with the hatchet.” Camou remains in police custody without bail on domestic violence charges and an unrelated burglary charge. is a post from:

A popular lesbian couple has left family and friends in shock after they died just days apart—one from complications related to cancer, the other from suicide. Giovanni Doll a.k.a. GigiBaby and Jay Dor (names they go by on Facebook) were both from Detroit and have the whole social media talking about their sad love story. Here are some things you need to know: Giovanni Doll died from complications related to cancer. It was revealed that Giovanni died in her sleep of health complications related to cancer in her sleep this past weekend. One of her close friends who goes by Mrz Lawson on Facebook posted about her death and how devastating it was for everyone who knew her. She wrote: “#Forever21 Damn This Shyt Crazy Not My Baby Gigi Giovanni Doll Not My Baby Renee Naw Man This Shyt Can’t Be I’m Devastated I’m Hurt I Haven’t Cried Like This Since My Mother Passed Away Like That’s Was Our Bae We Talked Bout Everything N Anything We Was Jus Hangin Wit U On Saturday At #PalmerParkPride U Rode Wit Us N We Had A Good Time Its Always Laughs When We Get Around Eachother Wen U Got Out We Was Jus Having a Deep Good Convo We Was Laughing N Shyt U My B’day Twin Y U Had To Go So Soon Baby Man I Can’t Believe This Shyt True I’M HEARTBROKEN U GON FOREVER B MISSED GIGI BABE.” Giovanni was loved by her many friends and family and it appears her death was a complete shocker to all who knew her. Giovanni and her girlfriend Jay Dor had broken up not long before Giovanni died. Giovanni and Jay Dor had broken up and were not on good terms before she died. According to posts from Jay Dor’s Facebook page, the two would often fight and call it quits, but always would eventually makeup and get back together. However, this time was different because Giovanni sadly died before they were able to reconcile. In one of her Facebook posts, Jay Dor spoke on a text message apparently behind their break-up that she found out was a lie. She said if she had known the text was a lie, her and Giovanni would have gotten back together. She also posted another video speaking on their relationship and its many ups and downs. She captioned the video: “She loved this shit here . Look at that smirk … I HATE WE HAD DOWN MOMENTS MAN IKNOW EVERYONE HAS THEM IN A RELATIONSHIP BUT I ALWAYS JUST WANTED YOU TO FEEL LIKE ME BUT IN THE SAME WAY I WANTED TO JUST LOVE YOU SO MUCH MORE THAN I COULD SHOW TRYNA BE A TOUGH PERSON AINT ALWAYS A GOOD THING NOW IM MISSING YOU SO MUCH.” In another video Jay Dor shared on her page she wrote: “Fought so much said so much bs to each other it whenever it was said and done we always made up baby.” Giovanni’s family did not want to have a candlelight vigil or balloon release in honor of her death. Jay Dor was planning on having a balloon release on her girlfriend Giovanni’s behalf, but it looks like it was canceled due to Giovanni’s mother’s wishes. One of Giovanni’s friends, Mrz Lawson, posted a text message thread in which Giovanni’s mother told her she wasn’t having a candlelight vigil or balloon release, but would keep everyone informed on when the funeral was. Another one of Giovanni’s friends also confirmed this as well. Before taking her life, Jay Dor spoke on people having an issue with her doing a balloon release for Giovanni and how Giovanni’s mother gave her the approval, but just wouldn’t be in attendance. Jay Dor took her own life days after Giovanni died. Following Giovanni’s death, Jay Dor posted several messages and videos showing how distraught she was over her death and the fact that they were broken up when it happened. On Monday (Jul. 29), Jay Dor posted a video on her page in which she broke down into tears and spoke on how hard it was for her to deal with Giovanni’s death. She also spoke on Giovanni helping her get her own house and how she tried to call her days before she died to make amends, but her phone was broken. Jay Dor continued to post on her page about Giovanni’s death and how badly it was affecting over the next few days. She wrote in one particularly alarming message: “Dawg I feel like I’m dying giiiiiiiio baby dawg I’m fucking hurting dawg I’m hurt I’m so fuckn hurt.” Then things took a turn for the worse when Jay Dor began posting messages hinting that she was going to take her own life. “Baby save room for me,” she wrote in one post. “I promise I’m coming for you.” She shared in another: “I’m scared I’m not about to lie but I still gotta get to you.” Jay Dor’s friends commented on her posts and begged her not do anything to harm herself, but that didn’t stop her from posting about her suicidal thoughts. “The pain I have behind these will soon be over like I have a sense of excitement because we gone be together again !!!!!!,” she wrote in one of her last posts. She followed that post with a farewell message naming close family members and telling them how much she loved them. She also posted another video speaking on reuniting with Giovanni. And a collage of their photos and videos together with the caption: “Baby I’m coming. True love”. In the final video posted on her page, Jay Dor said she simply couldn’t take the pain anymore. Below are her last two posts before she took her life. According to several sources, Jay Dor died by suicide after she jumped off a bridge into the Detroit River while on Facebook Live. Below is said to be the video she posted on Facebook Live before taking her life. In the video (which has since been deleted), Jay Dor reveals to viewers that she is about to kill herself. The clip disturbingly ends not long after Jay Dor appears to jump off the bridge. Jay Dor’s sister posted on Facebook hours before her suicide asking friends and family to keep her in their prayers. Jay Dor’s sister Kahlia Verner was concerned about her sister and knew that she was hurting deeply. She posted the following message on her page asking for everyone to keep her sister in her prayers as well as Giovanni’s family. Days before, she also posted a message speaking on how she knew her sister was going to deeply miss Giovanni. is a post from:

Designated Survivor Season 3 Recap Season 3 brought a new national security threat, this time amidst President Kirkman’s reelection campaign. After the show’s , we’re recapping the season’s main storylines to close out and say goodbye (again) to the political drama. Reelection at All Costs President Kirkman ran for reelection as an independent, against the odds. He hired the savvy Lorraine Zimmer to be his campaign manager and named Aaron Shore as his running mate. Lorraine used illegal surveillance technology to spy on conservative opponent Cornelius Moss. When Emily discovered it and went to Kirkman right before the election, he uncharacteristically sat on the information to win. The FBI arrested Lorraine shortly after. As a handsome Latino VP candidate, Aaron helped Kirkman take Texas, Moss’ home state. His relationship with Isabel Pardo was popular, but after he cheated on her with Emily, they still needed to play their parts. Isabel’s promotion to Deputy Chief of Staff helped her realize she deserved better. RIP Hannah Wells Season 3 saw the death of FBI-agent-turned-CIA-analyst Hannah Wells. Uncomfortable with a desk job, Hannah stumbled onto a plan to engineer a virus that would leave people of color sterile, effectively changing voting demographics in the long term. The virus engineer, Wouter Momberg, murdered Hannah, but authorities thwarted the plan. Moss’ biggest donor, Detwiler, financed the plan and his operative hired Momberg. Emily’s Mother Emily had stepped away from the White House to help her mother, Carrie, who was sick with cancer. At Carrie’s insistence, Emily went back to work and chose to join the campaign to keep an eye on Lorraine. However, Carrie visited Emily because assisted suicide was legal. Eventually, Emily mercifully helped Carrie end her life. Prescription Addiction Mars Harper, Kirkman’s Chief of Staff, was living with a wife, Lynn, addicted to painkillers. After a scare that sent her to the hospital and then to rehab, Mars focused on FlagKind, Detwiler’s pharmaceutical company that made the drug she was addicted to. After Detwiler went down, Mars convinced Lynn that she should run for her father’s congressional seat.

Eric Kripke reveals the one scene Amazon cut from The Boys Amazon’s The Boys quickly showed a propensity for extreme blood, sex and carnage, which, to be fair, is mostly due to the Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic-series its based on. However, the extreme could have been … more extreme. At least according to show creator Eric Kripke, who revealed the one scene that the streaming service thought was a little uh…. too much for a casual audience. “I couldn’t quite understand why considering everything else we have in the show, but: Homelander, after being dressed down by Stilwell in episode 2, was standing on one of the Chrysler building Eagles. He pulled his pants down and started j***ing off, mumbling ‘I can do whatever I want’ over and over again until he climaxed all over New York City. We shot it! Oh my God, Anthony was the BEST in that scene. Amazon seemed to think it wasn’t necessary. I thought it told me something about his psyche. To be clear, they’ve been great, that may have been the ONLY fight I lost in Season 1.” is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show is expected to retain most of the comic’s () boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame. The series stars (Star Trek, Judge Dredd) as Billy Butcher, the ringleader of the vigilantes who risk it all to go against a group of all-powerful characters, with Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, as CIA agent Susan L. Rayner, and Karen Fukuhara as the Female. Elisabeth Shue co-stars in the series alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell.

The Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta reunion concluded earlier this week and the mother of Kirk Frost’s baby outside of his marriage to Rasheeda was nowhere to be seen. But that didn’t stop Jasmine Washington from saying what she needed to say. LHHATL Season 8 focused on Kirk and Rasheeda attempting to build a relationship with 3-year-old Kannon, the son Kirk had with Jasmine after cheating on Rasheeda. During the reunion, the still-married couple shamed Jasmine for expecting too much from Kirk, even though Jasmine wasn’t there to defend herself. “I think she expects me to be there like she was in a relationship,” Kirk said. “And she gotta understand, it was something different, and you chose to move forward with the situation, and you gotta kind of deal with it.” Rasheeda co-signed with her husband of 20 years, blasting Jasmine for choosing to have a baby with a married man, as if Kirk had no part in creating little Kannon. “You had a child with a married man and a family. He’s not gonna change his structure for you,” she said. “He never made you think that sh*t from the beginning! So don’t think now that that child is in place that everything is gonna change. It’s not.” Jasmine—who says she was uninvited to the reunion—took to social media to tell her side of the story. In the now-deleted post, she said she doesn’t ask for much and called Kirk and Rasheeda “TV parents” who barely see her son and only used him for a storyline. “I was told I was uninvited to do the reunion bc I no longer allowed these 2 to film with my son & act as if they really be spending time with him in real life,” she wrote. “They are tv parents. I expect Kirk to be there like a f-king father. Let’s start there. I dnt ask for much! But surely you can take out an hour of your ‘busy schedule’ to see him for his bday or pick him up for example. “Damn, maybe even a 30sec phone call from your daughter’s phone to wish him a happy bday? Is that me wanting y’all to change your ‘structure?’?? Is that me expecting you to be there like we’re in a relationship?? “Not 1 of y’all wished him a happy bday but act so concerned about everything else when the cameras rolling. I dnt even gaf that sis wants to hold me more accountable than her husband, but KANNON ain’t do sh-t to none of y’all.” A post shared by (@theshaderoom) on Jul 30, 2019 at 4:32pm PDT Jasmine went on to claim that Kirk and Rasheeda faked the scene that showed Rasheeda finding secret text messages from Jasmine on Kirk’s phone. She says she doesn’t even have Kirk’s number. Jasmine continued to paint Kirk as an absent father and vowed to continue standing up for her child with or without the cameras. “Don’t know what storyline world you live in but better believe having a child does change everything. Or should if you’re an active parent! Just say you want to continue making excuses for Kirk sis,” she wrote. “Y’all just trying to move on and live like Kannon doesn’t exist but he’s here and his mother is gonna fight for every bit of respect, love and appreciation he deserves. Now you may continue with your fake a- reality show that no longer cares about reality.” Neither Kirk nor Rasheeda have responded to Jasmine’s social media rant. is a post from:
