"Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes is under fire for allegedly stealing an idea for a tv show. In a new lawsuit, writer Debra Feldman claims Shonda "lifted" her manuscript, "The Red Tattoo," and used it to created "Off the Map" (a failed tv show about U.S. doctors working in a remote South American village).  The dueling writers have not battled in court yet, but Shonda's rep told TMZ, “It is our policy not to comment on frivolous claims.”


In other cases.....

UPDATE: Master P TWEETS 14-Year-Old Daughter Itali's SAFE RETURN HOME

Posted: 12 May 2014 07:17 AM PDT

Master P’s teenage daughter Itali Miller went missing on Sunday. Thankfully, she’s back home safely. Find out what happened inside…

The drama in the Miller household escalated on Sunday after Master P sent out a tweet for help to find his missing 14-year-old daughter Itali Miller.

We told you earlier about the YouTube videos Master P released in an attempt to clear his name after his wife, Sonya Miller, claimed he had abducted their children.

In the videos, he talked to each of his children about their mother’s erratic behavior and alleged drug and alcohol abuse. P asked each child individually if they would rather move in with him or stay with their mother. All of his children chose to live with him, except Itali. You’ll recall she was the one who traveled out of town with a boy (with Sonya’s alleged consent) and also was allowed to throw a party that Sonya allegedly hosted and allowed drugs.

Last night, P took to his Twitter in a plea for help to find his “missing” daughter Itali who was last seen in Calabasas, California.
He tweeted:

A little backstory.....Itali allegedly moved in with her mother and older brother Romeo after their mother made claims that P wasn't helping her financially.  P claimed if their mother would just clean herself up and go back to being a good mother to their children, she could have whatever her heart desires.

Fortunately, Itali has now returned safe and sound. P tweeted a thank you to all of his fans and the Calabasas police department for finding his daughter:

Glad she's safe. Hope they can work all of this out for the sake of their nine children...

French and Khloe hit up Compound nightclub in ATL where French was scheduled to perform. And when he wasn’t rocking the mic, he kept his attention on Khloe. looks like a different atmosphere for Khloe as she looked a bit uncomfortable, hiding behind a pair of aviator shades.

THAT'S YOUR APOLOGY? Donald Sterling TELLS CNN, "If I Said Anything Wrong, I'm Sorry...I'm Not A Racist", SAYS Magic Johnson IS NOT A Good Role Model

Posted: 12 May 2014 06:28 AM PDT

 photo la-clippers-owner-donald-sterling.jpg

Donald Sterling sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper to offer an "apology" that came across as disingenuous and insulting to Magic Johnson.  Watch it inside....

It's been a few weeks since Donald Sterlings' infamous "tapes" were leaked to the media and now he's offering an apology for his remarks.  During a interview with Anderson Cooper, Donald offered some "perspective" about his comments and weirdly threw a few jabs at Magic Johnson.  Here are the highlights:

On the tape and his remarks:

'I'm asking for forgiveness. When I listen to that tape, I don't even know how I can say words like that. ... I don't know why the girl had me say those things...I mean, that's not the way I talk. I don't talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don't talk about people."

Says he's not a racist:

"I'm not a racist...I made a terrible, terrible mistake. And I'm here with you today to apologize and to ask for forgiveness for all the people that I've hurt."

On his "mistake":

"I'm a good member who made a mistake and I'm apologizing and I'm asking for forgiveness...Am I entitled to one mistake, am I after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake? It's a terrible mistake, and I'll never do it again."

On his comments about Magic Johnson:

"If I said anything wrong, I'm sorry...He's a good person. I mean, what am I going to say? Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don't think so. But I'll say it, he's great. But I don't think he's a good example for the children of Los Angeles."


Watch the "apology" here:

Watch the entire interview tonight at 8pm ET on Anderson Cooper 360°.

HER STORY: Kenya Moore SAYS The "ATTACKEE" Shouldn't Apologize, FEELS NeNe Is THREATENED By Her, Blames BRAVO For Making Her The "Enemy"

Posted: 12 May 2014 05:47 AM PDT

Kenya Moore appeared on "WWHL" last night where she explained why the audience "turned" on her, says Porsha Williams is not a victim and that NeNe Leakes is threatened by her position on the show.  More inside....

 photo kekemoore.png

Kenya Moore (wearing a Roland Mouret dress, Christian Louboutin shoes) finally had her chance to speak about what's likely become the most watched fight in reality tv history

While defending her character, Kenya told "WWHL" host Andy Cohen that she WILL NOT be offering any apologies to Porsha Williams (her attacker).  She asked, would you let an abusive husband off the hook because he blamed his wife for provoking him?

She also took BRAVO to task for "stacking the cards" against her as they showed flashbacks of her attacking Porsha without leveling the playing field (Porsha had her own aggressive moments).  She also told Andy that NeNe's "Queen Bee" status has been put in jeopardy since she arrived on the show and that threatens her.


Kenya blames BRAVO and her co-stars for stacking the cards against her:

Kenya says she will not apologize for being attacked:

Kenya explains why NeNe Leakes is threatened by her, says she's the reason for the high ratings:




The "RHOA" fellas call out Apollo for "checking out" Kenya Moore.

Check out the two getting frisky on Instagram over the weekend and out and about inside...

Go shopping, go to the spa, go to church, go to brunch.....just made sure you make it a celebration.  You deserve it.  We've gathered a selection of some of our favorite YBF "mommy" moments featuring a wide range of YBF moms. Come in and enjoy....

Mrs. Carter provided some of our favorite mommy moments over the past year.  We admired her dual committment to music and her role as a mom.  While trekking around the world for sold-out shows with The Mrs. Carter World Tour and dropping the Beyonce album (along with a lush collection of videos) she still managed to make Blue Ivy a priority.  Blue Ivy hit the road with her mom (and dad), even popped up one of her videos and  met the Obamas.  Beyonce proves that working moms can have it all.

 photo tumblr_n57zmlvMop1qa42jro1_1280.jpg

Mariah Carey and Dem Babies are always fun to watch on social media.  It's amazing how much the two tots take on the personalities of their larger than life parents Nick and Mimi.  Monroe is clearly diva in training who takes after her mom will Moroccan is a jokester like his dad.  Maybe we'll hear Dem Babies will make a surprise appearance on Mimi's new cd "Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse?" (May 27th).

 photo image_zps17ff56fd.jpeg

First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Sasha and Malia Obama on the world stage in a big way this year.  From China to Germany,  Sasha and Malia have stood by the FLOTUS alongside world leaders, powers of state and leaders of the industry.  As a mom, Michelle Obama is to epitome of beauty, intelligence, poise and role modeling for her girls. 

 photo gadk1.jpg

Kelis and her son Knight provided a few adorable moments over the past year too.  Knight (much like Blue Ivy) made his vocal debut on his mom's lasted music project, FOOD.  We've also seen Kelis taking her son on ritzy Beverly Hills shopping trips (creating a little fashionista), mending fences with ex-husband and co-parent Nas and even popping up during promotional appearances.  Kelis shows that being a good mother is about passing on your talents, creating a healthy family unit and looking fabulous while doing it. 



A few of Atlantic Records artists (Diggy, K. Michelle, Tank, Trevor Jackson, Sevyn Streeter) appear in a moving Mother's Day video where they share the lessons learned from their moms.  Enjoy....
