R.I.P Baby Girl: Heaven Sutton


The latest number signifying how bad Chicago’s violence has become is a small one: 7.

That’s how old Heaven Sutton was when she died Wednesday night of a gunshot to the back.  She was selling candy at a stand in front of her house when someone down the street opened fire. A stray bullet struck her as she ran to the safety of her home.

“She loved to sing, dance and crack jokes.  And she always smiled,” her mother, Ashake Banks, told ABC News.  Banks had opened the stand to keep a closer watch on and protect children in her violent neighborhood on Chicago’s west side.  “There was already shooting in the neighborhood,” she said. “So I figured that if I set up a big tent and a candy store, it would keep the kids in the middle of the block instead of going down to the [corners] where all the activity was.”

Tamar Braxton Files “Cease And Desist” Order Against K. Michelle

Tamar Braxton is obviously feeling herself!

Last week during the premiere episode of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, Tamar threw some subliminal shots at Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast member K. Michelle via twitter, who accused aformer boyfriend and ex-manager of mentally and physically abusing her.

Though K. Michelle never actually named her alleged abuser during the episode, Tamar gathered along with many other viewers that she was referring to her ex-boyfriend, rapper/producer Memphitz, who just recently celebrated his one-year anniversary with wife and close friend of Tamar, Antonia Carter.

During the show, Tamar tweeted that people should just let Toya have her fairytale, and K. Michelle later fired back in an interview saying that she “jumps gates” and that Tamar looks like a muppet.

Shortly after the interview, Tamar expressed that she felt threatened by K. Michelle, wants a public apology, and filed a “cease and desist” order against the reality star.

“I’m confused why Tamar thought her thought and opinion was necessary”!!!

Get Ready For The Sexiest Movie In 2012: Magic Mike!!!!












“Magic Mike” is going to be the best movie of 2012!!! Why, you ask? Well, maybe it’s because the film is all about Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer stripping. This blows Chippendale’s away.

In the last trailer we got some stripping, but more relationship-y stuff. This time around, it’s all stripping all the time. Cowboy outfits, a Ken doll, military fatigues, all tear-away, of course. Not that you care about the plot, but a male stripper (Tatum) finds love and takes a young man called The Kid (Pettyfer) under his wing and teaches him the ropes.

Check out the trailer and let us know what you think. Also, you’re welcome. “Magic Mike” hits theaters on June 29, 2012.

BREAKING: ‘Moesha’ Star Yvette Wilson Loses Her Fight With Cervical Cancer

As previously reported by NewsOne.com, Wilson was suffering with Stage 4 cervical cancer and was in dire need of funds in order to pay her mounting medical bills.

Shar Jackson has been sending out tweets asking for prayers for her friend and co-star for the last few days:

On June 11, 2012:

G.U [MY] Inspiration@_ILoveUGabU : RT @itsgabrielleu: !!RT @SharJackson: Everyone plz send prayer and light to my sister and best friend Yvette Wilson…..

7 hours ago:

Shar J@SharJackson : F**k Cancer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 hours ago:

Shar J@SharJackson: Oh god….. My heart is soooo unbelievably broken ….

And finally this tweet came in an hour ago:

Shar J@SharJackson: I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home.. …

Since that time, the condolences have been pouring in for Jackson, who played Moesha’s best friend Niecy Jackson on the show.

Wilson’s death has also been confirmed on her Wikipedia page.

See Wilson in an episode of ‘Moesha’ with the late, great Bernie Mac below:

Wilson, who also co-starred on ‘The Parkers’ with comedienne Monique’ and such memorable films such as “House Party 2,” “House Party 3,” and ”Friday,” was not only battling cancer but has also been plagued with kidney problems and needed kidney transplant as well.

See Wilson in a hilarious scene from ‘Friday’ below:

Friend Jeffrey Pittle, a stage 4 cancer survivor himself, created a website for Wilson, so that people could donate money for not only her medical needs but also help with any transportation costs that are associated with her getting to various medical facilities. To date, the site had raised $13,599 of the $25,000 they were seeking — or 54 percent. The fundraiser ended June 9, 2012.

As previously reported by NewsOne.com, Wilson is the fifth tragedy that has occurred from the “Moesha” show.  Star Brandy Norwood struck and killed a woman with her vehicleMerlin Santana, who played Moesha’s first boyfriend, “Ohaji,” was only 26 years young when he was shot dead in California as he sat in the passenger seat of a car.  Mac, who had the recurring role of “Uncle Mitchell” and was Andell’s boyfriend, died in 2008 from complications of pneumonia.  The ever-popular “Hakeem,” Moesha’s sidekick who was played by Lamont Bentley, was killed in a car crash more than 6 years ago.

Watch the old cast of “Moesha” talk here:

Other colleagues and stars have begun sharing their condolences via Twitter:

Tony Rock@TONYROCK : Yvette Wilson was super cool everytime we ran into each other. Rest peacefully.

Malinda Williams: Wow!! May God rest her soul. “@otengkk: @MalinsWorld just read Yvette Wilson has passed away RIP”

Drake & Chris Brown Get Into Bloody Bottle Throwing Brawl At NYC Nightclub

RihRih now look what you done started girl…Drake And Meek Mill Engage In Bottle Throwing Nightclub Brawl With Chris Brown

Is it Champagne Papi or Drake Lozada. That’s what we’re wondering after learning Chris Brown, Drake and Meek Mill ended up in a bottle throwing melee at WIP nightclub in New York City in the early hours of Thursday morning.

According to reports:

Meek and Breezy were already at the club when Drake arrived shortly after 3am. At approximately 4am Chris Brown was suddenly rushed out by his entourage and was immediately placed in black jeep fleeing the scene. Not long after, Teyana Taylor, who had been celebrating her signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D music label at a neighboring club, Greenhouse, was rushed out as well. Almost immediately, following her exit, club-goers flooded the streets in an attempt to escape the bloody brawl.

A member of Chris’ entourage was covered in blood while a woman who had accompanied Drake was carried away by his security.

Also in attendance rappers Fabolous, Maino, Juelz Santana and Trey Songz, were also spotted fleeing the scene following the outbreak.

There are conflicting reports over who actually threw the first bottle but it’s been reported that both a few members of Drake’s camp and Breezy’s full entourage engaged in the angry bottle hurling brawl. It’s also been speculated that the real beef is between Meek Mill and Fabolous, but that Drizzy and Breezy were caught in the crossfire.

Hit the flip for Meek Mill and Breezy’s tweets about the incident (which have since been deleted) along with photos of Breezy’s chin where the bottle caught him.
