[EXCLUSIVE] Columbus Short Gets Fired for Real Life Scandal!

Columbus Short as Harrison on ABC hit show Scandal.

We are all wondering, if actor Columbus Short, took his work home w/ him??? Too bad we’ll never know. The ABC Scandal star, who’s character is the sharp shooter Harrison Wright, will not be returning to the show next season. It’s widely known that the show’s creator Shonda Rhimes, doesn’t play when it comes to bad press, and rumors heat up Hollywood, about Columbus being warned if he doesn’t “get it together”, he’d be fired. Well, after the much publicized bar fight, and now w/ his domestic violence battery charges, it seems to be too much to bare and the trigger has been pulled.

Our sexy Gladiator In A Suit is gone 😦

Last Night,  ABC re-aired Behind the Scandalabra: Jimmy Interviews Shonda Rhimes, Creator of Scandal,and she gave up NOTHING when it came to talking about the future of actor Columbus as Harrison. I mean come on, we left him w/ a gun to his head, so no rocket scientist here, but I get it…HE’S DEAD!!! I can only imagine what he must be going through. Losing family and career at the same time, has to be devastating. The jury maybe out, but clearly the verdict has come in for Shondaland. Dayuuuuum, Columbus  brings a cool intensity to the series. And, he will be missed!!!

Check out his interview w/ Essence.com (below) where he tells all:

There will be no Harrison Wright when Scandal returns next season. Actor Columbus Short confirmed the news in a statement to ESSENCE.com today.

“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today,” he wrote.

“I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it.” 

Short leaves the show amid domestic abuse allegations from his wife Tuere McCall-Short who recently filed for divorce and accused Short of threatening to kill her, and himself. McCall-Short filed a restraining order against the actor earlier this month. She is seeking sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.

On the show’s season finale last week, Short’s character Harrison had a gun pointed to his head. And now we know his fate.

“Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas,” said Short. “I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”

ABOUT TIME!!! LUPITA NYONG’O is People’s World’s MOST Beautiful

 

LUPITA NYONG'O IS PEOPLE'S WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!
LUPITA NYONG’O IS PEOPLE’S WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!

SHE BAD in the most fabulous way!!! Waking up to the best news ever!!! I am so proud of all of Lupita’s accomplishments, she is truly a blessing for Black Little Girls and Black Women EVERYWHERE!!! 

I know first hand, how hard it is growing up in a world, where White is right and Light Skin is the next best thing. In my life, I’ve dealt w/ not fitting in because of my skin color, being called nigger and more. But, I swear moments like this, make it all worth it.

My mother, Charko is the Founder of Charko’s Vocational Education School of Fashion & Fitness Agency…Seattle’s FIRST Black Modeling School. I heard the painful stories of her being told, she could never become a model, because she was “Too Black”, “Lips Too Full” and “Hips Too Big”, yet she was determined to make it happen. I have always admired her tenacity and strength. She stayed rockin that succulent Dark Chocolate Skin w/ so much confidence, I vowed to be just like her.

It’s crazy, you don’t set out to be a role model, it just happens 🙂

PEOPLE you got it right this time!!!

Check out Lupita’s interview w/ People Magazine Here:

She may have won an Oscar for her role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave and recently landed a contract with Lancôme Paris, but Lupita Nyong’o

“never dreamed” she would be touted as “Most Beautiful” for all the world to see.

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.” 

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong’o first equated beauty with what she saw on television: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair,” she says. “Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.” 

As a teen, Nyong’o dyed her hair every color – except blonde – and even went as far as shaving her head bald. “It was very strange and very cold!” she says, laughing.

“It was scary but I like to dare myself.” 

Now she says the best compliments are “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.” 

JUST FAB!!!
JUST FAB!!!

Past covers have included, Halle Berry (1st Black Woman to become People’s Most Beautiful Woman), Beyonce and Denzel Washington.

RHOA’s Porsha Williams Gets Arrested for Bitch Slapping Kenya Moore

I hear Porsha ends up wailing on that ass w/ Kenya's own wand lol!
I hear Porsha ends up wailing on that ass w/ Kenya’s own wand lol!

Honestly, it was a long time coming. How many times can Kenya talk about someone’s Husband, Mother, Children, Friends, Careers, Animals and whatever else she can think of, without expecting to get her ass whooped?

I continue to stay down w/ #TeamTwirl, but I sincerely rock w/ Porsha. She may be slow on the witty responses, but she stands firm in what she believes in and I respect that.  so, here’s the get down on the RHOA Smack Down:

Porsha Williams of the Bravo network’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is facing a charge of battery after fellow cast member Kenya Moore told police she was attacked during filming of the upcoming reunion show.

ATL police were called to the Biltmore Hotel on 3/27, where Kenya told an officer that Porsha assaulted her.

Although, Kenya was unable to fill out a statement at the time because of filming, an arrest warrant was issued later that day.

On, Wednesday evening at the Fulton County Jail, Porsha turned herself in and was released that night. The charge against Ms. Williams is a misdemeanor. Thank GOD!!!

Lookin' good girl, even for a mug shot!!! Go head!!!
Lookin’ good girl, even for a mug shot!!! Go head!!!

I know her former husband Kordell Stewart is happy she didn’t beat his ass!!! And, we all know he deserved a grandiose bitch slap!

I knew there will be a time, when Kenya will meet her match...Only so much Porsha could take! #PopOffDotCom
I knew there would be a time, when Kenya will meet her match…Only so much Porsha could take! #PopOffDotCom

Well, hear that Porsha claims the battery charges are unfounded and that she looks forward to clearing her name. Plus, she plans to contest the charge and file aggravated assault charges against Kenya.

This is not over to say the least. Stay tuned!!!

Check out the sneak peek of the RHOA Reunion Special, airing this Sunday, April 20, 2014 on VH1.

Sextape or Straight Porn? LHHATL’s Mimi & Nikko’s Vivid Debut!

If you know of me, you know I’m sooooooo #ProNaked !!!

But this right here, this right here, in my best Katt Williams’ voice, is straight PORN!!! Yea, I said it! Vivid is doing them a favor, not disclosing they made a previous PORNO DEAL, by hiding it behind Social Media infused #SexTape viral frenzy!

Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2...
Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2…

I’m all for it girl! Get over Stevie, move on, find someone new, not necessarily a look alike, but find someone who’s diggin all over you. But, was that Nikko? Is that Nikko? I know first hand, once you’ve been sex deprived, not because you can’t get it, but because you’re still holding true to a relationship, that has far from left you, you stumble across some “Withholdings” 🙂 and, every stroke is like a live symphony 😉

But, not only does this dick have you in concert halls globally, but on front street too.

How can you come back from this? Fire your publicist who tells you to call it a #SEXTAPE !!! Let the public know, VH1 ain’t paying nearly enough, to have 24 hour access to your personal lives. Shiiiiiiiiit, bills still need to be met…But at what cost?

Stevie AND Nikko can get away w/ this, because they are MEN.

This is nothing but, an old school ‘Notches Tournament’  to them and you fell for it.  What? For more screen time? Porn side deals to ensure financial security??? I just want to say, fuck the viewer. Girl, you have nothing to prove to us. We live in a 24/7, at the palm of your hand, front row ticket, to EVERYTHING these days. Your daughter could literally roll over on your phone and pull this shit up!!! Not good!

((( JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT…DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!!! )))

Why shit on your brand like this? I know in heartbreak we make silly decisions, but  you’re a BOSS, let you tell it, so this had to be calculated. Timed to 7 days from your Season Premiere original date,…??? I’m baffled. Nothing about this video screams, Fiance, Love, Step Dad,  Romance, Future….

Just hit it and quit it. You put another one on Girl…

To your credit and your decline.  ((( #Typecast )))

Fuckin raw in ATL, I’m not from there, but even I know that’s a NO NO, shit, anywhere in the world, on some real shit, no condom is a  #NONO.  Homosexuality and Heterosexuality make major mistakes in unprotected sex, however when you mix both of them, like those gay rumors about Nikko, you double your chances on that death bed, give back confession video, to young women, infomercial.  True Story.

Black Women will surely take a hit for this one. Scheduled Visitation and Child Support payments will tank to an all time low, because men will argue the mother’s of their children are debuting in sextapes across america lol! You know I had to throw some late night comedy innnnnnn hahaha!

But [Black Women], dayum, we keep shooting ourselves in the foot. Not realizing the bullet goes straight through to our daughters.

Imagine that!
