It's blurry, but it's her.  Folks in Maplewood, New Jersey lost their minds last night when Beyonce popped up to shoot a video.  Hundreds of people flocked to the scene screaming their heads off, and folks documented it all over social media.

 

We've also learned what she was filming.  And it involves her Destiny's Child gals and her sis Solange.  Deets inside...

 

Last night in Jersey, Beyonce was spotted in her black SUV leaving a set after filming a secret project.  But it's not that secret.  We've learned that Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Solange were also on the set.  And it was a shoot for Michelle's upcoming video for her song "Say Yes" (which MAY actually be the song she's performing everywhere lately called "When Jesus Say Yes") off her new album titled, for now, Journey To Freedom.  Beyonce and Kelly MAY be featured on the track as well in remix-style.

The song is an uptempo inspirational gospel record, and according to the casting call info, the video will have different storyline threads running throughout it along with a backyard celebration.

Pics of Beyonce's trailer are all over Twitter, and police had to come in to do crowd control when ish got a little cray.  But she did roll down her window to say hit the crowd while she left.

Fun times.

 

The Randomness:

1.  Apparently, cyber pimping is real.  Twin brothers in Chicago have been arrested...again...for running a prostitution ring via Facebook and other social media.  STORY

GROUPIE TALES: NFL Draftee Odell Beckham Jr. SLAMS Woman Claiming To Be His Fiancée That He Cheated On, Woman Claims NFL MADE Him Say He Didn't Know Her!

Posted: 21 May 2014 07:46 AM PDT

 photo odellfiance.jpg

Let the games begin! A woman is already making claims that she is draft pick Odell Beckham Jr.’s fiancée and dishing on alleged details of their relationship. Problem is…Odell claims he doesn’t even know the woman! Deets inside…

The ink isn’t even dry on his contract yet and NFL draftee Odell Beckham Jr. is already speaking out against groupie tales. Odell was drafted in the NFL during the first round recently, signing a four-year $10.4 million contract with the New York Giants, including a $5.9 million signing bonus.

Erica Mendez (below) is telling anyone who will listen that she is the secret fiancée of the Giants rookie. Her people even reached out to us...several times...to "give us the scoop", but we passed.

But now, she's taken things to a new level that has now sparked NFL security to get involved.

In an alleged interview with RadarOnline, she made claims that the 21-year-old football star cheated on her, making a love child with another woman and that she walked in on him having a threesome with strippers!

 photo odellchick1.jpg

A little back story on Erica…she is a self-proclaimed model and entrepreneur from Houston, Texas who is currently working on her own lip gloss line, a memoir and opening her own boutique. She has made claims that she and Odell have been in a relationship since 2010 and although he may have cheated, they are working on their relationship and plan to wed.

 photo odellchick2.jpg

Erica has been shopping her story around for quite some time…trying to expose Odell but according to him, he doesn’t even KNOW this chick.

In a statement to the NY Post the Giants rookie said,

“The entire story is fabricated. I have never been engaged. I don’t have any children. And I have never met this person who is making these claims.”

He also took to his Twitter to deny the allegations made by Erica tweeting:

 

 

A spokesperson for the Giants requested the NFL begin a investigation to find out who is making up these fabricated stories saying,

“The organization has contacted NFL security to help investigate the matter.’’
 

But not so fast.  Erica says she actually DIDN'T make all these accusations.  But she does maintain they had a personal relationship. 

We reached out to Erica's rep for comment and this what she had to say:

"I would like to personally reiterate that I have never spoken to Radaronline.com, nor did I have a sit down interview with them. The slanderous story posted by them about my personal relationship with Odell Beckham is vastly inaccurate, to say the least. Blatant lies are riddled throughout the story. I have never walked in on Odell in any sexual situation, nor did he ever father an outside child. The alleged text message conversation between Odell and I is completely false. I have no knowledge of who created these false text messages. This story has undoubtly been pieced together by Radaronline.com, along with perhaps groupies, then added to for more hits on the site. I am completely dishearted by this turn of events and it has placed a toll on Odell and I's personal relationship. I have a deep love for the Beckham family and I'm truly disgusted by the claims Radaronline.com has made against me, which I will be taking legal action against."

When we asked why Odell says he's never even met her before, Erica's rep said...The NFL made him say that.

"Decision [was made] by the Giants, as everyone was completely taken off guard by the situation."

The damn INK isn't even dry on this dude's contract and it's already some foolywangery popping off....

EXCLUSIVE DETAILS: Meet The Cast Of T.I.’s New OXYGEN Series “Sisterhood Of Hip Hop”

Posted: 20 May 2014 04:24 PM PDT

 photo SOHH1.jpg

We told you earlier T.I. was producing a new OXYGEN series titled “Sisterhood Of Hip Hop,” and now we have the official cast and promo pics for the new reality show. Get familiar with the new ladies of Hip Hop inside…

After much success with his own "Family Hustle" reality show on VH1, T.I. is venturing out on a new project titled, “Sisterhood of Hip Hop.”  We were skeptical about this upon first hearing about it.  But maybe it MIGHT just work....

Tip will be executive producing the new OXYGEN reality series that will follow female hip-hop artists including former Crime Mob member Diamond, NY raptress Nyemiah Supreme, Pharrell’s female artist Bia, openly gay female rapper Siya and Florida raptress Brianna Perry.

The show will follow the ladies as they maneuver in a male-dominated industry proving they can hold their own against the best of the best. And we will also get a sneak peek into the ladies’ personal lives as they try to find a balance between their career and their private life.

Peep the ladies' press photos and bios below:

 photo SOHH2.jpg

Diamond enjoyed the sweet taste of success at age 14 with her former outfit, Crime Mob, whose track “Knuck If You Buck” went platinum in 2004. Signed to King Of Crunk mentor Lil Jon's label BME, the group's success continued with the singles "Rock Yo Hips ft Lil Scrappy" and “Stilettoes". Since leaving her former crew in 2007 to strike out on her own, she has worked with hip hop luminaries such as Ludacris, Trina, Eve, Nikki Minaj, Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane. Her singles “Lotta Money” and “Loose Screws” left enough of an impression to make her a nominee for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the 2011 and 2012 BET Awards. In 2014, she signed to Polo Grounds Music, joining a roster that includes Pitbull & A$AP Rocky, and with the release of her debut solo album this year, Diamond hopes to climb back to the top of the charts, a decade after Crime Mob made waves in the hip hop scene.

 photo SOHH5.jpg

Jamaica, Queens native Nyemiah Supreme began her career in the shadows of such well-known acts as Chris Brown and Lil Mama, as a back-up dancer. After high school, she spent a year and a half working as Juelz Santana’s intern, where she got to see some of hip hop’s most notable names drop beats and rhymes in a studio setting. Inspired by her experience and a serendipitous encounter with Jim Jones, she got a break when she was asked to step up to the mic on Jones’ single “Everybody Jones.” A few days before Christmas in 2012, Nyemiah had a late night chance studio meeting with super producer Timbaland. He put her on the spot to write a few verses and from there Timbaland took her under his wing. Today, Nyemiah has two mix-tapes under her belt, a new EP, and more than 500,000 views on her YouTube video. She released her single, “Rock ‘n’ Roll” with Timbaland appearing on the hook, handling the production, and appearing in the video back to back with Nyemiah. A former background dancer thrust to the foreground, Nyemiah Supreme stands a serious chance of having a career that lives up to her bold moniker but has a lot to prove to herself, her mentor and her fans.

 photo SOHH4.jpg

A newly breaking artist from Miami who sacrificed everything to follow her dreams and better learn her craft from Famlay and Pharrell. Bia is the new girl on the scene. Ever since she was in a life-threatening motorcycle accident, Bia has taken life and opportunity by the bullhorns and refused to let go. She’s dropped everything for her music and is confident it will pay off. Being on Pharell’s team has allowed her to be in the right place at the right time landing placements with TI, Jennifer Hudson, and Usher. Although she has gained the respect of Pharell’s co-sign, Bia knows that all eyes are on her and she’s got to deliver. Rarely do you get more than one shot – especially as a female emcee in this industry.

 photo SOHH6.jpg

Born in California and raised in Bed-Stuy, a legendary Brooklyn hotbed of influential hip hop music, Siya overcame many challenges early on including a drug-addicted mother and incarcerated father, as well as her own run-ins with the law. Siya’s true support came from her grandmother who took her in, but also from the streets of Bed-Stuy. Music became an outlet for her and after moving to Atlanta to pursue her dream, she eventually built a rep for herself and caught the attention of many major labels and well-known artists. While some people in the industry were afraid of how an openly gay female rapper would fit in the genre, Siya remained determined and refused to compromise who she is, always staying true to her own unique voice and style. One of Complex magazine’s rappers to watch out for in 2012, word around the industry is that Siya is the next big thing.

 photo SOHH3.jpg

Brianna Perry has been around the music business for as long as she can remember and is ready to show the world what a lifetime of hip hop education can do for your career. Brianna’s skills have been recognized by top artists like Beyonce, Trina and Missy Elliot and she’s been praised by press outlets such as The New York Times, Time Magazine, Complex, Vibe, The Source, XXL, and The Miami Herald for her unorthodox style. With her debut album Brianna is going to do more than tell the world what she is capable of, she is going to show them. The gorgeous MC has charisma, style, and even dance skill to go along with her lyrical talent. Describing her own music as “refreshing, young and relatable to her fans,” Brianna is restoring innocence to the female rap game and she refuses to compromise the femininity and the edge she needs to survive in today’s hip hop world.

Will you be tuned in?  The show airs later this year.

SWV member Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George and her former NFLer husband Eddie George celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony.  Check out the beautiful pics inside...

 

 photo IMG_7967_zps6c852a37.jpg

These two have been through it all--kids, a demanding football career, a demanding singing career comeback, a reality show about their family, a threat of home foreclosure, and even rumors of infidelity after Eddie was caught in a blonde's car after the twosome were pulled over--after an event--for suspicion of DUI.

Since they celebrate 10 years of marriage this month, Taj and Eddie decided to get married AGAIN this week at the The East Ivy Mansion in Nashville, TN. 

Taj was a bride again in a beautiful white lace dress and jeweled head piece.  And her hubby rocked a white tux jacket and bow tie.

HACKED? Joseline Hernandez RESPONDS To ABUSE Allegations Made On HER ACCOUNT, "Nothing Happened To Me" + Stevie J THREATENS Alleged "Hacker"

Posted: 20 May 2014 02:00 PM PDT

 photo fgdfkfdfehererffd3eer.png

"LAHH ATL" stars Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J are speaking out about a collection of photos tweeted from her Twitter account that hint at an "abusive" relationship.  See what the couple said inside....

Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J are speaking out against a series of negative tweets that were attributed to Joseline's Twitter account.  Recently, a picture of Joseline (that shows bruises from an alleged fight) was posted to Twitter with a series of allegations that name checked Stevie J and "LAHH ATL" creator Mona Scott Young. The tweets claimed Stevie (Steebie) was abusive and Mona Scott Young knew about it. 

One of her posts even said that "Steebie" found out she was bangin' the weed man, so he beat her.  Sounds too unbelievable even for Joseline, right?

Those tweets have been deleted but we have the screen shots.....

 photo Joselinellljji9.jpg

 photo fddfdferioeri443834843.png

 

A little backstory.....viewers of "LAHH ATL" (who watched last night's episode) saw that Stevie and Joseline fired their booker Dawn.  During a scene with Stevie J, Dawn confronted Stevie about his rented home and cars and said his marriage to Joseline was fake.  From the outside looking in....it appeared that she kept a better account of their "affairs" than they did.  Would she also have kept track of their social media passwords?  Would Dawn (or someone else) have access to old pics?  Food for thought....

 

Earlier today, Joseline posted a video to Instagram saying she was hacked and that she's fine....

 

Stevie J added:

 photo steviesjdsjd.png

 

Joseline has made similar acusations previously about Stevie.  But this time, on our end of things, we believe the "hacker" theory.  The "photos" look old and we doubt Joseline actually refers to her husband, in WRITING, as "Steebie."  Even though she does pronounce his name that way while speaking.

 

BONUS:

Dawn seems to know all the dirt......

HOUSEWIVES' DAY OUT: NeNe Leakes Pampers Herself With Mani-Pedi In Beverly Hills With Kyle Richards + Kenya Moore Arrives At LAX, Source Denies "Celebrity Apprentice" Rumors

Posted: 20 May 2014 12:48 PM PDT

 photo hatkem10.jpg

During some downtime yesterday, NeNe Leakes hit up a nail salon in Beverly Hills for some much needed pampering while her “RHOA” co-star Kenya Moore was spotted talking it up on her cell phone as she arrived at LAX. See their candids inside…

 photo hatkem1.jpg

With “RHOA” wrapping up recently and after being eliminated on “DWTS,” NeNe Leakes has a little extra time on her hands and what better way to spend it than a girls’ day out for some primping and pampering.

NeNe and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards linked up in Beverly Hills to enjoy a mani-pedi as they dished on their current happenings.

 photo hatkem4.jpg

 photo hatkem3.jpg

The rumor mill has been turning about whether NeNe will be retuning to “RHOA.” Mrs. Leakes recently told VH1, “I don’t know if I’m happy to be a full time Housewife. I will still work for Bravo. We just need to work out some things.”

Seems she’s trying to build a little buzz about her return keeping her fans on their toes because she was front and center at the NBC Universal Upfronts, repping Bravo’s “RHOA.” Mmhmm…

And another "RHOA" star out-and-about...

 photo hatkem2.jpg

Kenya Moore was glued to her cell phone as she was spotted making her way through LAX with all of her luggage.

 photo hatkem6.jpg

 photo hatkem7.jpg

Ms. Twirl was on her way back from Europe, so our sources tell us. 

Shas also been on the rumor mill after it was reported she isn’t playing nice with her cast mates on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Kenya is being accused of stealing Vivica Fox’s cell phone and tweeted from her account as if she was Vivica about menopausal issues and that age 50 is not sexy.

A source claimed Vivica cursed her out on the set after she found out what Kenya had done. Once word got back to Donald Trump, he allegedly blasted Kenya for her antics, saying “You’re the most evil woman I’ve ever met in my life,” and FIRED her from the show.

But according to our source…all of this is NOT true. We're told, by a source very close to Kenyam that Donald Trump "loves her" and even told her she's the best thing that's ever happened to the show.  The source claims Donald never called Kenya evil, and it's simply the Daily Mail tabloid making up more stories about her like they have for the last six months. 

That's the claim....and they're sticking to it.

UN-BREAKING HER HEART: Toni Braxton Talks Abortion, Plastic Surgery, Blaming Herself For Lupus And Son's Autism In New Tell-All + Halle Berry SHARES "TMI" On Her "Geriatric Pregnancy"

Posted: 20 May 2014 12:20 PM PDT

 photo toniwave1.jpg

Toni Braxton reveals all in her new memoir Unbreak My Heart.  And we mean ALLShe talks about her abortion, her family religious extremism and why she blamed herself for her son's Autism.  Watch her GMA interview inside and see Halle Berry talk about breastfeeding Maceo on "Ellen."

In her new memoir Unbreak My Heart Toni Braxton (shown above outside ABC studios afte rleaving "The View") opens up about her career in the music industry. 

She's giving us the low-down on growing up as a preacher's kid, the guilt she felt about leaving her sisters, The Braxtons, behind and her road back from financial crisis.  Along the way, the "Braxton Family Values" star and Grammy winner reveals she once had an abortion, opens up about her marriage and divorce and shares why she blamed herself for her son's autism.  Here are a few highlights:

On sharing her story:

‘I’m looking ahead with that ultimate hope - that peering back at my past heartbreaks will ultimately lead to healing.’

On religious extremism and why she often felt God was punishing her:

‘I began connecting religion, God and church with judgment, anxiety and guilt.’

On her nose job:

'I’d been wanting to change my nose for years – I wanted it to be less broad. But because of the conservative ideas I was raised with, I struggled with the thought of altering my body’. ‘And of course, I later got my boobies done. I’d always been shaped like a gymnast – size double A breasts and thunder thighs. In fact, I wish I would’ve had lipo on my inner thighs. I’ve always hated them’.

On linking her abortion to her son's Autism:

‘I have sometimes wondered whether God was punishing me for the abortion I had years ago by allowing my son to have autism. Or by giving me so many health issues.’

On sisterly guilt:

'My job is done. "Braxton Family Values" is the final punctuation mark on a sentence of guilt that has gone on for too many years—since that day in 1991 when my mother told me, “Don’t forget your sisters.’ 

 

Watch Toni's "GMA" interview this morning:

 

Also on television...

Oscar-winner Halle Berry appears on "ELLEN" today where she'll promote her upcoming CBS-series "Extant".  And she also is sharing a few TMI tidbits about her late-in-life pregnancy and the differences between breastfeeding girls vs. boys. Here are a few highlights from this morning's live show airing later in most cities.

On her pregnancy with Maceo:

'They call it a geriatric pregnancy,' before adding: 'I was, you know, on my way…this is probably way TMI, but I was really, you know, kinda premenopausal so to have this happen was a huge [shock].'

On Nahla and Maceo:

'Nahla prayed and prayed for him for like a year and a half for a baby and a bunk bed and she got both of those things. Only her prayers could have done this. I didn’t think it was possible at my age, honestly.'

So she’s just like, he’s like one of her dollies that came to life.
'You know and all she wants to do is change his clothes. Like she’ll purposely like throw something on his shirt and say, "Oh mommy, he’s got to change his shirt. He has a mess on him!" She just likes to change his clothes, change his diapers…'

On breastfeeding boys vs girls:

'...There’s a difference between boys and girls. You know, I’m nursing both…I breastfed Nahla and I’m nursing my baby. When I would put Nahla on the boob she would go (light sucking) a nice little girly suck with him it's like (chomping suck) he’s like sucking the life out of me. So I see the difference between boys and girls.'

BACK TO THE FUTURE: Ciara Names Her Newborn Baby 'FUTURE Zahir Wilburn' In Honor Of....FUTURE?

She also posted the baby's full name.  And it seems she's honoring her child's father....at least honoring his stage name and his government last name.  She posted:

TV FAB: Maya Rudolph REVIVES 'The Variety Show' With New NBC Show "The Maya Rudolph Show"

Posted: 20 May 2014 11:36 AM PDT

 photo maya-rudolph-art-2-w724.jpg

Famed 'SNL' alum Maya Rudolph starred in her own NBC primetime special, "The Maya Rudolph Show", last night.  Watch clips inside...

Maya Rudolph ("Up All Night", "Bridesmaids") returned to NBC's primetime lineup with her own variety special last night (a pretty big deal for a Black actress or any actress in Hollywood). 

Featuring guest apperances from Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, Andy Samberg and bandleader Raphael Saddiq, Maya led the audience through a reincarnation of the "variety show" featuring comedy bits and musical numbers.

We're not sure if NBC plans to pick the show up for next season or if this was a once-upon-a-time deal, but it surely had its entertaining moments. 

And clearly, others thought so as well.  Maya raked in a whopping 7.23 million viewers, which beat out top rated "Criminal Minds" in her 10p time slot!  She also beat out all other networks other shows last night in all time slots, except "Dancing With the stars" and "The Voice".

Watch "The Garmyns":

Congrats Maya!

Whatever martial issues Tip and Tiny have been going through were put aside to celebrate their youngest birthday. Peep Tip throwing up bunny ears behind Tiny as she snapped a pic with his son King. He is growing up so fast.

SPOTTED: Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Go INCOGNITO On Gym Run In Paris + North West Tags Along For Shopping Trip

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are making their last trips to the gym to get their bodies in shape before their alleged wedding ceremony. Also, North West was spotted on a shopping trip with her mommy. See Yeezy and the Wests take over Paris inside…

Kanye West and his fiancée Kim Kardashian are taking over Paris as they gear up for their highly anticipated wedding ceremony…allegedly going down this weekend.

After recently announcing in a joint statement (how's THAT for "we want our privacy"?) that they are giving a private tour of the Palace of Versailles to their wedding guests on the eve of their wedding, the couple was spotted hiding behind bandanas today.  They were making their way to Paris' L'Usine Gym for a morning workout. Gotta work off that ice cream they indulged in from Haagen Dazs the day before.

Based on reports, North's parents will wed at Fort Belvedere in Florence, Italy and will throw a pre-wedding bash at the Palace of Versailles the night before. On the other hand, they could possibly have two weddings. No telling with these two.

And during a pre-wedding shopping trip to Givenchy today, North West's adorableness was put on full display for the Parisian paparazzi.  How...convenient.

Baby Nori will be celebrating her first birthday next month. Wonder what type of extravagant bash will be thrown for that.

More Nori please!
