PEC-A-LICIOUS: Michael Jai White & Tyson Beckford TAKING IT ALL OFF In New Stripper Flick "Chocolate City"

Posted: 22 May 2014 06:57 AM PDT

Michael Jai White and supermodel Tyson Beckford will bare their pecs (and hopefully EVERYTHING else) in a urban-themed stripper flick named "Chocolate City." 

Imagine Michael Jai White and Tyson Beckford in thongs and covered in baby oil. Now that your're down drooling...let us explain.

Indie filmmaker Jean-Claude LaMarre is hoping to expose the world of black male strippers in his upcoming film Chocolate City. Because, you know, we all need to know about it.

Besides big biceps and massive pecs, the film will focus on Devin, ".. a college student struggling to make ends meet who meets the owner of a male strip club (Michael) who convinces him to give amateur night a whirl."

Tyson will play Adrian, the club’s former star attraction who finds his popularity fading.

Jean-Claude is writing and directing the flick which he'll produce for his Nulite banner alongside Gabriel Casseus, Robert Aaronson and Rozina Negusei of Zanar Entertainment.  And if t seems like he's giving a "Black Magic Mike" feel, that may be intentional.

Jean-Claude told Deadline, “This movie was in gestation for 2 1/2 years, but after Magic Mike it seemed a natural fit for the African-American female audience...I researched the male exotic club scene and it’s massive across the country, with clubs specifically targeting middle-aged African-American women.”

Chocolate City will begin filming in Los Angeles in June.  Look likes Magic Mike will get a run for his money from a Luscious Leroy and a Tasty Tyrone.

AND THE DRAMA CONTINUES: Torrei Hart Calls Out Kevin Hart With OFFICIAL Splitsville Date In Open Letter + Eniko Remains “Classy” In Subliminal Message

Posted: 21 May 2014 07:08 PM PDT

 photo torrei1.png

So…Torrei Hart is responding to her ex-husband Kevin Hart’s Twitter rant from earlier today. She’s pulling out receipts with actual dates and is still insisting that his current girlfriend Eniko Parrish is the reason they broke up.  And we're not totally mad at her for it, seeing that anyone who gives seven years of their life to someone else deserves a little...empathy.  Also, Eniko took to her Instagram today with some "classy" subliminal shade. Deets inside…

After Kevin Hart ranted on Twitter about how long he and his ex-wife Torrei Hart have been split up, Torrei fired back with their official divorce year in an open letter directed at Kevin and his girlfriend Eniko Parrish. And she had nothing to hide…tagging BOTH of them in her response.

Earlier today, a clip from an “ET” interview with Torrei Hart exposing her ex-husband’s current girlfriend grabbed the attention of the comedian, causing him to take to Twitter to air out his frustrations. Torrei made claims that Eniko was Kevin’s mistress while they were still married and she is the reason behind her losing her family.

Kevin fired back at his ex-wife making claims that their relationship had been over for nearly seven years...but according to Torrei, that’s not so.

In an open letter to Kevin and Eniko, Torrei said,

@kevinhart4real has been my biggest inspiration I've watched him from the beginning he is the hardest working man I know. But in order for people to grow and prosper sometimes God will force you out of someone's shadow. The hardest thing I ever had to do was lose my family. But as I heal and grow I understand why it had to happen. Yes I was broken at a point in my life but that is only natural for someone who's had to suffer what I had to suffer. Our divorce was finalized two years ago and we were only separated 8 months prior to the divorce. Despite what @kevinhart4real has said and the time frames he is trying to establish Eniko Parrish @neekibaby was his mistress and was one of the reasons that broke up my family. I have more proof but Kevin should just be honest for both of our healing. I want @kevinhart4real and I to be friends like he portrays we are to the media. @kevinhart4real has gained success by using his family as his number one source of material. From his stand up to his tv shows he's used my personal life as his main story line. So at this place in my career I know he is one of the reason doors are opening up for me. And I am grateful to him for that. And we both have been blessings to each other in that area. So now that the doors are opened the work ethic that I have always had is no longer standing in his shadow pushing his career, now it's shining so I can have my own.
 

Yep…Kevin did file for divorce from Torrei in 2011. And we thought something was brewing in the Hart’s household after he was spotted holding hands with Eniko at a Lakers vs. Heat game in December 2010.

Torrei’s comments must have gotten to Eniko because she posted a "lesson" on what it means to have class with the caption, “I'm jus here like [cat face smiley] this too shall pass!”

It's quite easy to smile like a chesire cat in the face of domestic drama when you come in on the "wealthy" end of a man's life.  No shade.

CAN’T GET ENOUGH: Columbus Short Accused Of CONTACTING Estranged Wife At LEAST Six Times After Judge Granted Restraining Order

Posted: 21 May 2014 02:42 PM PDT

 photo columbuswife.jpg

Columbus Short is allegedly breaking the law.  Again. His estranged wife Tanee McCall-Short claims her husband is not complying with the restraning order she filed against him. Find out the deets inside…

This situation just keeps getting messier and messier! Former “Scandal” star Columbus Short is being accused of contacting his estranged wife Tanee McCall-Short AFTER her restraining order against him had been granted.

According to TMZ, Tanee’s lawyer made claims that the “Got Ya” singer has repeatedly violated the terms of the order, contacting his client at LEAST six different times.

Luckily for Columbus, Tanee’s lawyer only requested the temporary restraining order to become permanent because he/she could have asked the court to hold the actor in contempt. For now, the order has been extended until July 30th.

Tanee is trying to stay as far away as she can from Columbus after he allegedly ransacked their home once a judge ordered him to pack his things and get out!

You'll recall Columbus allegedly threatened to kill his wife and take his own, which is why she's trying to bounce. In an attempt to prove his wife is the aggressive one in their relationship, Columbus released video footage of Tanee physically attacking a friend of his on the floor of their home. Sighs...

These two have WAY too much going on…

Torrei Hart GOES IN About Kevin Hart’s Girlfriend, Wanted To "TKO" Her For Homewrecking! + Kevin Pops Back Defending Eniko

Posted: 21 May 2014 01:32 PM PDT

 photo keveniko.png

Kevin Hart’s ex-wife Torrei Hart says her ex-husband’s current girlfriend Eniko Parrish is a homewrecker! And says she is to blame for their marriage ending after seven years. But according to Kevin, he says his girl has NOTHING to do with their break-up and Torrei needs to get over it. Get all of the juicy deets inside…

 photo torreirocsi.png

They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.  And it seems to be true when it comes to one celebrity relationship in particular.

Kevin Hart’s ex-wife Torrei Hart is pointing the finger at Kevin’s current girlfriend as the reason her 7-year marriage ended with the reported $50 million comedian.

Torrei will be starring on VH1’s upcoming reality show “Atlanta Exes” (coming in August) and during a promo run she sat down with “ET” correspondent Rocsi Diaz for a candid interview about her past marital issues with her ex-husband.

During the interview, Torrei claimed the reason she and Kevin ended their relationship was because of infidelity after an alleged affair with his current girlfriend, Eniko Parrish.

"I never lashed out. I never tried to punch her in the face, even though I've had moments where -- trust and believe -- I wanted to K.O. her ass."

She also added that the fact her two children have to be around the woman who she believes wrecked her happy home adds to her frustration.

"It does hurt that my kids have to be around a woman who broke up a marriage," said Torrei. "I was with [Kevin] when he was selling sneakers for five dollars an hour. I was at every show. I was at his first show where he ever did standup ... I was his muse. I was there from the beginning."
 

Damn.

Check the interview clip:

While Torrei blames Eniko, Kevin says his current girl has NOTHING to do with their break-up and that his ex-wife needs to move on. He made it known that he tries to build a positive relationship with Torrei’s new boyfriend and that dishing out $20,000 a month and being a good father to their children STILL isn’t enough for her.

In a rant full of tweets after that interview aired, he said:

Here's the full text:

It's amazing what people do for attention...all I can do is laugh at a lot of this ridiculousness.

Fame is a unbelievable drug people, I say this because so many people want it and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it.

Everybody isn't built for this...

Here's what's sad, My Ex wife is the mother of my 2 beautiful kids & is well taken care of,I go above & beyond what the court ordered me 2do

Because she is the mother of my kids I would never slander her name or anybody that she's dealing with.

I've actually embraced the man that she is dealing with with nothing but positivity. I'm a mature adult, I'm not a teenager

That man is going to be around my kids and for that reason alone I want to have a positive relationship with him.

4 her 2 continue 2 talk about my Woman is honestly sad especially after 5yrs of us being 3gether &a total of 6 1/2 years from me leaving her

With that being said don't believe the hype people, I've been separated & divorced for a long time now people. I've moved on with my life

My woman has nothing to do with my past marriage problems in any way shape or form. It's almost 7yrs total of me not being with my Ex

I guess giving a woman over 20k a month and still being there for her and being a incredible father isn't enough!

I want nothing but the best for her & her boyfriend and that will not change. I ignore negativity,being bitter & angry will get u know where

I love the fact that my woman loves my kids and a smart woman should love that as well. What if it were the other way around?

What if a woman despised a mans kids because they weren't hers???? People don't think before there actions...

With that being said I hope my Ex wife honestly finds happiness. THIS HAS BEEN A KEVIN HART PERSONAL ANNOUNCEMENT. Have a good day everybody

I'm a open book with my life and I always have been. I don't hide anything from my fans. I'm as real as it gets people. Thanks for listening

P.S I was listening to "Drake's" album while I was tweeting all that stuff....lmfao

That shit made me emotional lmfao

Well..there you have it...

Terry Crews stopped by "WENDY" this morning where he promoted a gaggle of upcoming projects including a new book, MANHOOD, a new television gig as the host of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and his role in the new movie with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler called Blended.  

The star of Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" also revealed a lifelong addiction to pornography.  While discussing his father's battle with alcohol and his mother's addiction with religion (his words), he admitted that his addiction to porn stared around age 12.  He says it nearly destroyed his family and he didn't truly overcome it until five years ago.  His wife Rebecca BARELY took him back after she put him out of the house because of his constant struggle.  But now, they're going on 25 years strong as a married couple!

The former NFL player also revealed that he's partially deaf in one ear, and that's why he talks so loudly!

Will Smith Helps Fan Make Pregnancy Announcement! + The Smiths Allegedly Being Investigated By CPS Over Willow’s Controversial Photo

Posted: 21 May 2014 11:24 AM PDT

Will Smith surprised a fan with an epic pregnancy announcement in a coffee shop. Meanwhile, there are reports that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are being investigated by CPS over the picture of their daughter Willow Smith laying in bed with a 20-year-old man. Get the deets inside…

It’s not everyday you get an A-list actor to help you make an epic pregnancy announcement.  But for one lucky fan, she got just that!

Reddit user 'yogaposer' posted the picture above with the caption, "My friend's baby announcement is pretty fresh."

Apparently the Reddit user's friend "Emily" bumped into Will Smith in what appears to be a coffee shop. The excited mom-to-be nabbed a picture with the Men In Black 3 actor holding a sign that read, “EMILY’S PREGNANT!”

Nice. Congrats to the new mom!

And in other Smith news…
 

 photo willowpic.jpg

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are allegedly being investigated by Child Protective Services after a picture of their 13-year-old daughter Willow Smith laying in bed with shirtless 20-year-old actor Moises Arias surfaced online.

A source told RadarOnline,

“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” an insider told Radar. “Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand.”

The source revealed, “Social workers will also be talking separately with Willow, and they also want to talk to the young man in the picture with her as well. This won’t just be one or two visits with the family, and it will likely be an open investigation for at least a month, out of an abundance of caution.”

You’ll recall Jada went off on the paparazzi when they asked if the picture was inappropriate. She said,

“Here’s the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash on to it and you’re acting like covert pedophiles”

We don't agree with Jada on THAT one (we, like most folks, were raised in a way where that type of situation woud have NEVER been allowed to happen for many reasons).  But is an investigation by Child Protective Services necessary?  Thoughts?

Ahead of their big wedding weekend, Mr. West and his almost-Mrs. are going on more shopping and wedding rounds in Paris.  Pics of the twosome doing what they do best inside...

The wedding is just days away, and these two are carrying on with ease and calmness, so it seems.  That's what happens when you spend stacks upon stacks of cash for the perfect wedding--everyone else can do all the stressing for you.

So, Kanye and Kim were spotted trekking it around Paris all dressed up...to do a little shopping for even more clothes.  You know, how they spend every day:

 photo themparis4_zps53620c00.jpg

And earlier this morning, they made another trip to the Paris L'Usine gym o get in those last minute squats and weights:

Yes, Kanye.  We see you.

We've seen "alleged" guest lists floating around for the wedding, but they all seem to be simply lists of people we already know are Kim & Kanye's best friends and would expect to be there.  Nothing to see here...yet.
