She's Here To Stay! Phaedra Parks IS NOT Taking a Break From "RHOA", FILMS Scenes With Apollo + "Hit The Floor" RENEWED For Season 3

Phaedra Parks is NOT taking a leave of absence from "RHOA"...and she's even filmed scenes with jailbound Apollo Nida!  Get more deets on Phaedra's RHOA situation inside and the good news about VH1's "Hit The Floor."


Rumor control!   Contrary to online reports, Phaedra Parks (shown above with RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss) has not taken a leave of absence from "RHOA."  While a story hit the net that Phaedra walked out on the show, it seems that's not fully the case.

TMZ reports that Phaedra has been filming for a month and has taped several scenes with Apollo Nida, who'll soon depart for an 8-year jail sentence.  While Phaedra may miss some filming to take care of family business, there's no way she'll allow Apollo's situation to cut in on her bread and butter.

Logan Browning, who plays "Hit The Floor" villainess Jelena, celebrated the good news on Instagram with a cast pic and a word of thanks for her fans,

"From the day I earned the privilege of playing Jelena to us now being a third season show, I've grown so much. In faith, character, performance, dance, even this new found popularity. I didn't expect any of it, but from the beginning of it all to today I have kept my dad's words close to my heart. It's what I've done & it works so it's what I will continue to do..."Have fun"! Thank you for having fun with us Devils Nation! Enjoy the last 2 episodes & we'll see you in #HTFSeason3"

Susan Levison, EVP of Original Programming & Production for VH1 said, ’Hit The Floor’ delivered again with fantastic ratings and social media engagement in season two, especially among women. We look forward to seeing what kind of trouble the Devil Girls will get into next season.”  And perhaps VH1 could do us all a favor as dedicate the entire season to the making of the faux ESPN "Body Issue." Just a thought.....

Terrence Howard Wants Divorce Settlement Thrown Out, Says He CAN'T Afford It! + Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon’s Mansion Goes BACK On The Market

 photo terrencehwife.jpg

Terrence Howard is fighting his estranged wife in court. And it’s over the amount of spousal support he’s supposed to cough up. Meanwhile, the buyer who was going to purchase Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s Bel-Air mansion has backed out. Deets inside…

Although she filed for divorce over 3 years ago, Terrence Howard and his estranged wife Michelle Howard are still trying to come to an agreement on how much Terrence should be paying her for spousal support. He wants to have the divorce settlement thrown out so he filed legal documents to have it amended.

The Best Man Holiday star is making claims that he simply can’t afford the set amount of spousal support Michelle is requesting a month. He also believes she blackmailed him into signing the document in the first place. Michelle, who was only married to Terrence for one year, claims her ex owes her a whooping $325,000. Ouch...

So why can't Terrence afford the spousal support? Well, according to him he is only bringing in $5,878 a month. He revealed he’s left that amount after coughing up coins to another ex-wife, Lori McMasters, to pay her spousal and child support. TMZ reports Terrence is an employee under Lori and has his movie money going straight to her and she cuts him a check after she gets her share. Hmmm…

Sounds a bit crazy but crazier ish has happened.

Unfortunately for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, they are still on the hunt to unload their million-dollar Bel-Air mansion. The couple thought they had neogiated a $10 million deal for the uber luxe pad but apparently, the buyer backed out…and didn’t say why. Hmph.

Now the house is up for sale for a cool $13 million if any of you are interested.

In today's new music roundup, Lenny Kravitz struts to "Sex", Nicki Minaj teams with Ariana Grande and Jessie J for "Bang Bang" and Willow Smith releases "8." Listen inside....


Have you ever pressed the play button and realized a song was a hit the minute the drums kicked in?  Get ready for the "Bang Bang" experience.  For her new single, Jessie J teams with Ariana Grande (who just had a hug #1 hit with "Problems") and hip hop -ishstarter Nicki Minaj. While the song is pure radio-friendly pop, Nicki bring the streets with her verse "It's me, Jessie and Ari/If they test me they sorry/Ride us up like a Harley/And pull off in this Ferrari."  Also....she didn't have to get naked to keep our attention.

The track is produced by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ily and is from UK singer Jessie J's forthcoming album My Everything. The three ladies will perform the song at the MTV Video Music Awards in L.A. on August 24.

Though the song doesn't drop until tomorrow, we managed to grab a leaked version of the song. #thankuslater

Willow Smith lends her voice to a track named "8" off of DJ Kitty Cash’s Love the Free II mixtape. The 13-year-old songstress explained the "idea" behind the song to MTV News saying, “I’ve been really into numerology lately because a lot of numbers have been following me and my friends. I’ve been coming into this new phase in my life, just becoming one with all that is, going deeper into myself and getting to the goal of my music, which is to share that feeling and pass on knowledge so that consciousness can be raised on this planet.”

Hmm....those are some pretty deep thoughts from a pre-teen.  

Listen to "8" here:


Did "8" raise you consciousness?


For rock & roll lovers...

Lenny Kravitz cover art cover screams SEX, and that happens to be the title of his latest single. The funky guitar-driven groove kicks off Lenny's 10th album, aptly titled "Strut."

Talking to Billboard, Lenny described the direction of his upcoming disc saying, “It was recorded with minimal instrumentation, guitar, bass and drums. The strength of the groove comes from the sparse production which creates space.”

Lenny will "Strut" into music stores on September 23rd. In the meantime....enjoy "Sex" with Lenny.
