Rumors

LeBron James made his Staples Center debut Saturday night (Oct. 20) in his first official NBA game with Los Angeles Lakers.Though James’ first game as a Laker was supposed to be a big deal, it was overshadowed by a fight that broke out between Rockets player Chris Paul and Lakers player Rajon Rondo in the fourth quarter.With just four minutes left in the game, Rockets guard James Harden drew a foul while driving to the hoop, making a layup over Lakers forward Brandon Ingram to put the Rockets up by 109-108. Apparently Ingram, though, didn’t like the call and the 21-year-old quickly shoved Harden in the back, drawing a technical foul.Lance Stephenson then ran in, grabbed Ingram and tried to walk him away from the situation in an attempt to deescalate it.According to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, Paul said the fight started between him and Rondo started because Rondo spit in his face. In a video she posted on Twitter, you can see Chris wiping his face before he goes after Rajon.Chris Paul told our broadcast crew this all started because Rajon Rondo spit in his face. When the second replay cycles through you can see Chris wiping his face before he goes at Rondo. — Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) After officials reviewed the incident, Ingram, Paul and Rondo were all ejected from the game. and the trio will likely face suspensions and fines from the league as soon as Sunday.The Rockets held on to their slight lead after the fight to take the 124-115 win, spoiling James’ opener in L.A. and getting their first win of the year. is a post from:

McSwain, the rapper and eight other men were indicted on federal drug charges.The men are accused of running a drug trafficking organization with multiple counts related to the distribution of large quantities of drugs in North Philadelphia, including cocaine, crack, methamphetamine and heroin.The :“conspiracy to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine, 280 grams or more of crack, 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, and 100 grams or more of heroin. The superseding indictment also includes individual charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, crack, and heroin; distribution of methamphetamine; and a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm.”The federal agents are under the impression that AR-AB, whose real name is Abdul West, is the leader of the drug trafficking organization that distributed over 5 kilos of cocaine from at least March 2017 through June 2018.The following individuals, all of Philadelphia, have been charged (according to the Dept. of Justice):Abdul West, a/k/a “Assault Rifle Ab,” “AR-Ab,” “El Patron,” “the Goon,”Jamaal Blanding, a/k/a “Bionickhaz,” “Khaz,” “Deangelo Smith,”Jameel Hickson, a/k/a “Meliano,” “OG,”Richard Chase Hoover, a/k/a “Boog,”Dontez Stewart, a/k/a “Taz,”Amir Boyer, a/k/a “Mulla,”Daryl Baker, a/k/a “Shotti,”Hans Gadson, a/k/a “NoBrakes Bras,” andDennis Harmon.The indictment alleges that AR-AB’s organization was part of a network that received drugs from California and distributed them in Philadelphia.“” and his crew are also being accused of purchasing high-end rental properties in Philly to evade detection and to protect their supply of drugs.During two different raids on properties owned by AR-AB, cops recovered a large amount of drugs, thousands of dollars in cash and a handgun.From the DOJ:On September 11, 2017, the Philadelphia Police Department executed a search warrant at a house owned by West on North Sydenham Street, recovering 62 grams of crack, 229 grams of heroin, and 48 grams of methamphetamine, as well as $8,000 in cash and a handgun.On May 17, 2018, the FBI executed a search warrant at an apartment complex on Christopher Columbus Boulevard, recovering approximately 10 kilograms of cocaine and nearly 6 pounds of methamphetamine, along with $20,000 in cash.“The charges alleged in the superseding indictment are extremely serious, and if convicted, these defendants are facing major jail time,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain. “The investigation and prosecution of drug trafficking organizations remains a high priority of this Office and the Department of Justice. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our streets safe and stop the flow of these deadly drugs into our communities.”Back in February, AR-AB that the Philadelphia Eagles would win the Super Bowl.The Philly rapper was also reportedly close to signing with Drake’s OVO imprint at one point after Drake name-dropped him on his Meek Mill diss track “Back to Back.” is a post from:

Roseanne Barr is far from happy about her character being killed off The Conners—the reboot to the reboot of her successful sitcom Roseanne, and she has made sure that the world knows it.Just hours after ABC premiered the Roseanne-less show on Tuesday, October 16th, Barr fired back, letting everyone know that she didn’t like the way they chose to get rid of her character, who died due to an accidental opioid overdose.“I AIN’T DEAD, BITCHES!!!!” Roseanne tweeted.She eventually deleted that tweet and came back with a more relaxed response released on her spiritual teacher Rabbi Shmuley Boteach’s Facebook page.“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of ‘The Conners,’ all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel ‘Roseanne’ by killing off the Roseanne Conner character. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show,” the statement reads in part.The lengthy statement went on to slam , calling it a result of “fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive.”ABC fired Roseanne and canceled her namesake sitcom after she posted a racist tweet comparing former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Roseanne later blamed her outburst on Ambien—whose makers, in an unprecedented move, responded by saying “” to their drug.The show had just been rebooted, and two months prior, ABC had ordered 13 episodes for Season 11. In mid-June, the show was revived as a spinoff titled The Conners, which has the same cast as Roseanne (minus Roseanne, of course).The Conners‘ highly anticipated premiere dipped slightly—about 35 perecent—compared to ratings from the reboot’s premiere last spring. Despite the dip, the premiere was still considered a success. It beat NBC’s The Voice, but lost to NCIS on CBS.The premiere found Dan (John Goodman), Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) and Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and the rest of the Conner family three weeks after the shocking death of their wife/sister/mother.At first, the family thought Roseanne had died from a heart attack, but it was later revealed that it was an accidental overdose that killed her, leaving Dan in disbelief since he claims he flushed all her pills.Dan later found out that Roseanne had been exchanging pills with their neighbors, leading to a line that was obviously meant to refer to the circumstances surrounding Barr’s dismissal from the show.“She was going to do what she was going to do,” Dan said. “She never listened to a damn person in her life.”Read Roseanne’s full statement about her departure from the show below:Roseanne Barr and her longtime Rabbi and friend, World Values Network Founder Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, have issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of Roseanne and the premiere of The Conners:“While we wish the very best for the cast and production crew of The Conners, all of whom are deeply dedicated to their craft and were Roseanne’s cherished colleagues, we regret that ABC chose to cancel Roseanne by killing off the Roseanne Conner character. That it was done through an opioid overdose lent an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.“This was a choice the network did not have to make. Roseanne was the only show on television that directly addressed the deep divisions threatening the very fabric of our society. Specifically, the show promoted the message that love and respect for one another’s personhood should transcend differences in background and ideological discord. The show brought together characters of different political persuasions and ethnic backgrounds in one, unified family, a rarity in modern American entertainment. Above all else, the show celebrated a strong, matriarchal woman in a leading role, something we need more of in our country.“Through humor and a universally relatable main character, the show represented a weekly teaching moment for our nation. Yet it is often following an inexcusable — but not unforgivable — mistake that we can discover the most important lesson of all: Forgiveness. After repeated and heartfelt apologies, the network was unwilling to look past a regrettable mistake, thereby denying the twin American values of both repentance and forgiveness. In a hyper-partisan climate, people will sometimes make the mistake of speaking with words that do not truly reflect who they are. However, it is the power of forgiveness that defines our humanity.“Our society needs to heal on many levels. What better way for healing than a shared moment, once a week, where we could have all enjoyed a compelling storyline featuring a witty character – a woman – who America connected with, not in spite of her flaws, but because of them. The cancellation of Roseanne is an opportunity squandered due in equal parts to fear, hubris, and a refusal to forgive.” is a post from:

Keyshia Cole appears to be madly in love with her much younger boyfriend Niko Khalé.Keyshia to Dolphin Cay at Atlantis Paradise Islands in the Bahamas to celebrate their birthdays, which are just a few days apart. Keyshia just turned 37 on October 15th, while her barely legal boy toy Niko turned 23 two days later on October 17th.The both of them have shared photos and videos from their vacation all over Instagram. Keyshia captioned one of the photos:My babes, @nikokhale myself and a Sea lion named Dolce … Can’t even trust a sea lion, smh ? she was all up on bae, I ain’t lying [y’all] … SHE WAS DEFINITELY A LITE WIBEKeyshia also shared a video with her boyfriend’s new song playing in the background (FREE PROMO?!) along with a special message:Happy BDay to My libra, I appreciate you, I love you, and thankful for your presence, Sooo So happy we were able to spend our BDays TOGETHER, You’ve also been inspiring me, to not give up on my music, in times of being discouraged, Your work ethic has been impeccable! Soo I gotta show Your new project, that you released TODAY, Some love!!!! Keep grinding Maaaa Doooooo!!!! It gets better!!! #ONMYOWN EP OUT NOW., By @nikokhale You guys check it out and let me kno what u think!?And Niko shared his own video, this time with music playing in the background, as he and Keyshia sang to each other about “birthday d**k”:It isn’t clear exactly how long Keyshia and Niko have been dating, but the couple first went public with their relationship on social media back in February, and they’ve been regularly posting photos of each other on their respective accounts since. She even wrote a lengthy post defending her relationship against “judgemental” people:“Now the reason I’m posting The pepper to my salt @nikokhale is because he’s been such a sweetheart to me, and I know people have been very judgmental about our relationship but I gotta nurture what nurtures me.”The pair apparently hit a rough back in June, however, when and made her account private and Niko deleted most of the pics and videos of Keyshia he had on his page as well.RELATED: At the time, Niko posted a photo of himself with the caption “What’s far fetched to a dog off the leash?” insinuating that he was single before changing the caption to “My drip a little different” after folks started questioning him in the comments.About a month later, the two were back on strong like donkey kong, as Niko updated his IG with a bunch of new photos/videos of Keyshia, captioning one pic: “N**** that’s ALL ME… she ain’t goin no where.” And Keyshia posted a bunch of photos of them enjoying the Fourth of July together with Keyshia’s 8-year-old son DJ, whose father is Keyshia’s ex-husband, former NBA player Daniel Gibson.Also in July, Keyshia Cole trolled the internet with a for which she later (kinda sorta) apologized:“I KINDA APOLOGIZE for #TROLLING yesterday, telling y’all I was ##Preggo !!!!

Over the weekend, a video surfaced showing a white woman refusing to let a black man enter his apartment building in downtown St. Louis.D’Arreion Toles was returning home late from work Friday night (Oct. 12) when Hilary Brooke Thornton, who lived on the third floor of the Elder Shirt Lofts, demanded Toles provide proof that he lived in the building.“Please move, ma’am,” Toles can be heard saying in the video footage he recorded of the encounter, showing the woman—who was given the nicknames “Apartment Patty” and “Hallway Hilary”—with her dog on a leash standing in the doorway at the condominium complex. “I can,” she responds. “Do you live here?”“I’ve already answered that question,” Mr. Toles, 24, replied as he continued to try to get into the building. “Excuse me… You are blocking me into my building. This is my building as well. So, I need you to get out of my way.”Refusing to move the hell out of the man’s way, Hallway Hilary—who said she was “uncomfortable”—then asked Toles what unit he lived in and to see his key fob. When he declined to give her that information, she remained in his path.“If you want to come into my building…” she began before Toles cut her off: “It’s not your building, you’re not the owner. Excuse me.”After Toles moved to pass Hallway Hilary, she followed him onto the elevator all the way to the front door of his loft.Asked why she was following him, Hallway Hilary said “I would like to know whose friends [you are] … and why you’re here” and then she tried to flip the script and say that if he did indeed live in the building, she was just interested in meeting her neighbor. “You didn’t start off on a good note,” he said. “I don’t want no dealings with you.”After the video went viral on the internet, it didn’t take long for social media to track the woman down and find out her place of employment.It turns out Hallway Hilary works at another apartment building—Tribeca St. Louis Apartments to be exact—and management was far from pleased to learn that one of their employees was out here being racist.According to a statement released from the complex, Hilary Brooke Thornton aka Hallway Hilary has since been fired.“Tribeca-STL was recently shared a video containing a disturbing interaction that we believe is important to clarify,” the statement read. “The video did involve one of our employees, but the event did NOT take place at Tribeca-STL and did NOT involve one of our tenants. The video is showing the employee in her private life at her own residence interacting with another person.The statement continued: “The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds. We are proud of this fact and do not and never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company. After a review of the matter, the employee has been terminated and is no longer with our Company. At Tribeca-STL we want all residents, guests, and visitors to feel welcome, safe and respected.” is a post from:

Blake Griffin was once one of the most exciting, explosive players to ever come through the NBA. When he and Chris Paul turned the perpetually “meh at best” Los Angeles Clippers into the must-see Lob City … well, let’s just say the duo were frequent features on Sports Center’s Top 10.Seriously, just watch. Even if you don’t read another word, your click will be worth it if you watch this.Still reading? Well if you want your perception of Blake Griffin to remain unchanged, I’d recommend stopping here, because what comes next isn’t pretty.On Wednesday, October 17th, Blake Griffin learned he ain’t quite the young buck he used to be. In the first quarter of a game against the Brooklyn Nets, Blake Griffin put a move on his defender, spun into the paint, and leaped up for one of his signature posterizing dunks.Only this time, .JARRETT ALLEN GETS BLAKE GRIFFIN AGAIN — Anthony Puccio (@APOOCH) Here’s another angle (sorry Blake).JARRETT ALLEN DENIES BLAKE GRIFFIN AT THE RIM (via ) — SLAM (@SLAMonline) Just absolutely cold-blooded.That’s Jarrett Allen, the Nets 20-year-old Center who stands at 6’11” with an ungodly 7’6″ wingspan. A wingspan he put to good use by viciously making sure Blake Griffin understands that he owns the paint now.And this wasn’t even the first time Allen has made Blake (I’m guessing) question what his 29-year-old, injury ridden body is capable of. During a pre-season match up between the two teams, Allen shut Griffin down in the paint with this beast of a block.Jarrett Allen erases Blake Griffin from Planet Earth for the second time in 9 days. — Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) So Blake, maybe it’s time you start to step away from basketball and go pursue that stand-up comedy career . That’s right, Griffin has said that he considers stand-up as a viable second career for him once basketball is over. And truth be told, he’s not bad.He’s hosted , does sets at clubs, and even went up against on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle. So maybe he really can go off and make a living telling jokes when the time comes.And based off that set of rejections, that time might be coming sooner rather than later. is a post from:

All this fakeness to get on TV. You ain’t nothing but a fraud, crook & a thief. You out [here] holding Porsha stomach in pics but the whole time my mom was pregnant by you, you jumped on her and beat on her. Am I lying McKinley?”She continued:“All the hurt you caused my mom, I will never forgive you!!! You asked my mom to be your business partner in Queen Virgin Remy because you didn’t have the money to start it, then you go & lie & take it from us. I finished school early to help build it & this is what you do? You put your name as the sole owner knowing you didn’t even have the money or even a car to get around in.”According to Jamecia, Dennis is nothing but a scammer who’s using Porsha so that he can be on television. She wrote:“You have been trying to get on TV the longest, that’s why you tried to settle with my mom before the show aired but everything you have done to people is gonna come out!!! [You] are the DEVIL & your karma is about to come back around.”Read Jamecia’s entire post (via screenshots) below: Shanise also shared a now-deleted post about Dennis, accusing him of calling her multiple times after her daughter’s post went viral on social media.“The sad thing is women will want a man so bad especially if they have money but don’t do a background check to see who they stole it from or hurt to get it!!! @Porsha4real Get your man & tell him to stop calling!!! She’s not answering!!! Leave My Daughter, Me & my Friends Alone!!!”RHOA Season 11 premieres in just a few short weeks—November 4th to be exact—and judging from the a few weeks ago, Dennis will be a huge part of Porsha’s storyline as Kandi Burruss and Porsha’s sister Lauren are both shown trying to warn her about him. “He’s a dog alright,” Kandi says in the trailer.PREVIOUSLY: is a post from:

Thanks for all the love and support. God is good and God is real!”The motive for the shooting is unknown and police haven’t arrested any suspects, however, rumors suggest the shooting was retaliation for the shooting death of Dallas-area comedian Roy Lee Pate, who died Saturday (Oct. 13) from a blood clot two weeks after he had ben shot.Yella Beezy is best known for his hit single “That’s On Me,” which started getting major traction in the Dallas area this spring and was on the national level by the summer.

This week’s Black Ink Crew picked up right where last week’s episode left off.The cast of Black Ink Crew is LIVID after witnessing Sky get punched in the face by newcomer Herb. And it appears as though Ceaser, Walt, and Ted want ALL THE SMOKE and are ready for round 2 … even though they already gave Herb the bidness in round 1!“MY SISTER BLEEDING!” Ceaser shouts, as Sky runs outside with two bottles in her hands asking “Where he at?!” Meanwhile, Walt is outside shirtless yelling “THAT N***A PUNCHED MY SISTER IN THE FACE!”Because production won’t let anyone throw any more hands, the cast retreats back into their Airbnb so they can calm down and so that no one ends up in handcuffs.I think we can all agree on one thing: Black Ink Crew New York is a REAL family, and they will ride for theirs no matter what. is a post from:

Fran Drescher wants to bring The Nanny back to television, and she has the perfect person to star alongside her: Cardi B.Drescher recently revealed that she’s a huge fan of the rapper, and she would like for her to play the role of her daughter in the potential series.During a recent appearance on , the 61-year-old veteran actress discussed a number of topics, including a potential revival of the sitcom that made her a household name.“I wanna do a sitcom with Cardi B,” Drescher said. “Wouldn’t she be great as my daughter?”Asked about giving “The Nanny” another go, Drescher said: “I’m totally down with doing it … I don’t know what is going on with some of these networks out there because they do not seem to be hip to the fact that there’s an obsession amongst millennials for the show and moi!”Drescher said her idea to team up with Cardi B came when the rapper stepped out in leopard print during Milan Fashion Week and shouted her out on Instagram.“I was so flattered,” she said. “I just thought she paid homage to me wearing animal print and said ‘Fran Drescher.’ And then I got my juices flowing and thought, ‘Wait a minute, she’s from New York, we both have funny voices, she could be my daughter! Not from me and Mr. Sheffield, I would have to have a man of color. I’m down with the brothers.”The Nanny, which starred Drescher as a cosmetic saleswoman who becomes nanny to three children of a widowed British Broadway producer, aired for six seasons on CBS from 1993 to 1999.Back in June, Fran said that she and show’s co-creator, her husband of the past 34 years, Peter Marc Jacobson, were “talking about” reviving the series as other older shows make comebacks, but there aren’t currently any confirmed plans that it’s happening.25 years after the “The Nanny” premiered, Drescher said, “People really love that show. It’s unreal.”Cardi B playing her daughter in a reboot would be epic! We’re all the way here for this. is a post from:

T.I. had had it up to HERE with Kanye West and his shenanigans.Kanye West arranging a meeting with Donald Trump was one thing, says T.I., but him basically kissing Donald Trump’s a** on national television is a whole ‘nother thing.T.I., who is close friends with Ye, has always defended him, even after he said 400 years of slavery was a choice. But Tip is on a new level of angry after the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho sat down in the White House Oval Office and said his MAGA hat feels like a Superman cape, and went out of his way to tell Trump that he loved him.T.I. unleashed a fiery Instagram rant against Kanye, saying, “This sh*t is next level, futuristic, Sambo, Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django a** sh** Ye!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen.”Tip went on to say that Kanye actually asked him to join him at the White House Thursday (Oct. 11), but T.I. says he rejected the offer (for obvious reasons), and he’s glad he did because if he had been there to personally witness Ye’s antics, he would have been “compelled to slap de’Fuq outta [him] For the People!!!”T.I. continued: “You a** kissing and boot licking on a whole new level & I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak & inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!”If you’ll recall, earlier this year, T.I. and Kanye collaborated on the track “Ye vs. the People,” which was released not too long after his “slavery was a choice” comments during an interview with TMZ. But Tip says that will NEVER happen again. “At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you,” he said, “…now I’m ashamed ot have ever been associated with you.”At the end of the day, Tip says he feels like Kanye is only looking out for himself and putting himself in a position of power next to trump. “Let me make this clear,” the Atlanta rapper said. “THIS SH** AIN’T COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN… WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS.”T.I. concluded his message with a plea and his last words to Kanye: “Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr. West’s soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially DONE!!! F**k Trump and his lil cookie boy. #USorELSE.” is a post from:

An Arkansas sheriff’s office has been accused of forcing people to pose for their mugshots in Nike shirts to mock the company’s recent deal with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.Social media activist Shaun King posted a photo of 12 inmates wearing Nike shirts on and Facebook Wednesday night, saying that Union County Sheriff Ricky Roberts was “putting Nike t-shirts on people they arrest and making them wear them during mug shots.”King added that his source said they Roberts was forcing inmates to wear the Nike shirts “to mock Nike and Colin Kaepernick,” which he said was “disgusting.”The Sheriff in Union County, Arkansas is putting Nike t-shirts on people they arrest and making them wear them during mugshots.Source says it is to mock Nike and Colin Kaepernick. Disgusting. — Shaun King (@shaunking) Colin Kaepernick gained national attention in 2016 when he began kneeling during the national anthem in protest of the country’s mistreatment of people of color.Last month, Nike made a deal to feature Kaepernick on billboards, TV and online ads for their “Just Do It” campaign, a move that, ironically, sparked a number of protests from conservatives, including people burning Nike gear and posting videos online.The photos Shaun King posted showed at least 12 inmates wearing large, black T-shirts with NIKE ATHLETICS in boldface font. Other inmates were wearing shirts with just the Nike check mark logo or NIKE AIR.“Though King’s post features two Nike shirts — the aforementioned T-shirt and a black polo shirt with a small white Nike swoosh in the upper right-hand corner — the second shirt could be seen in mug shots as far back as July, before the Sept. 3 announcement of the Nike-Kaepernick deal,” . “The NIKE ATHLETICS shirt began to show up in mug shots around Sept. 15, according to the jail’s roster.”Less than an hour after King’s post, the Union County sheriff’s office removed all photos of inmates from the jail’s online roster. is a post from:

On this week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, K. Michelle confronted her former assistant Paris for using her credit card for several Uber rides.Paris, thinking that everything was cool between them, was taken aback by K. Michelle slandering her name on national television, and when K. Michelle continued to call her a thief, all hell broke loose.Here’s how it went down:K. Michelle: “You cannot keep making excuses for what happened.”Paris: “It was a Uber ride!”K: “A Uber ride is using my card…”P: “But K, it was a $50 ride…”K: “It wasn’t $50, Paris…”As K. Michelle reached for her receipts, Paris pulled out a stack of dollar bills: “How much was it, K?”“You see this?! FRAUD! FRAUD! FRAUD! FRAUD! This was over $300!” K. Michelle shouted. “This is the proof!”As Paris continued to try to pay her back in cash, K. Michelle calmly let her know that she didn’t want her dollar bills: “Girl, I don’t want that!”After exchanging a few words back and forth, Paris threw a full drink at K. Michelle, nearly drowning the poor girl. (No, really, it looked like K. Michelle couldn’t breathe for a few seconds!)Surprisingly, K. Michelle didn’t retaliate with any physical action. She just kept shouting “YOU ARE A THIEF!” to which Paris responded “YOU FAKE ASS KEYSHIA COLE!”Their exchange ended with K. Michelle proclaiming “She almost messed up my new hose!”Needless to say, Twitter went crazy over Paris and K. Michelle’s altercation. Peep some of the best and funniest reactions below:Next time on K Michelle: — ??? ???????? ?-?????????? (@beatrixforkiddo) K Michelle look like she just drowned ??? — Danny Patton????
