If you thought Amina Butterfly was bluffing during the “LAHH NY” reunion show about being pregnant, apparently she wasn’t! And remember when Peter Gunz said he was DONE with Amina? Yeah well..looks like they’re still together. Mr. & Mrs. Gunz were spotted in New Orleans yesterday, showing off that baby bump of hers. And they likely went to visit another one of his baby mamas in N.O. Get the deets inside…
Well look what we have here. “Love & Hip Hop: NY” star Peter Gunz and his now wife (who started off as his side chick) Amina Butterfly posing it up with a fan, showing off her ever growing baby bump.
Now, if you watched “LAHH NY” last season, you saw the crazy love triangle between Peter Gunz (aka Stebbie 2.0), his baby mother Tara Wallace (whom he had been with for about 13 years) and the German singer he managed Amina Butterfly.
In the beginning of the season, Tara and Peter were living together with their two children and basically she was his “ride or die” chick up until he started a sexual relationship with his “artist” Amina. She found pictures of them posted on Instagram getting a little too close and she called him out on it. Of course, he denied it. And kept denying it for as long as he could until Tara got fed up and bounced.
But the kicker came after he MARRIED Amina and got her pregnant! Amina revealed she was pregnant with Peter’s baby on the “LAHH NY” reunion show, pulling out a positive pregnancy test. The rapper turned manager was pissed, saying he didn’t want anything to do with her OR her baby.
Guess he had a change of heart because the married couple was spotted out in New Orleans yesterday (atop). You’ll recall, Peter has children (at least two) with another woman; a lawyer who lives in New Orleans (whom he cheated on with Tara) and was probably introducing Amina to his other children.
Amina seems to be happy with her situation, posting numerous pics of her baby bump on Instagram:
Guess she doesn't mind being baby mama #3.
Check out Amina dropping the pregnancy bomb below:
Peter Gunz breaks down over pregnancy news:
They say...the way you get him will be the way you keep him.

Hollywood royalty Bria Murphy is stepping up her efforts to follow in the footsteps of her famous parents with a new swimsuit photoshoot. See pics of Bria showing off her hot bod inside....
Some rich kids of Hollywood might be content to sit around and spend their trust funds, but Bria Murphy is clearly not one of those. Well, not totally.
The sexy daughter of award-winner film star Eddie and gorgeous reality vixen Nicole is serious about getting noticed in Hollywood.
We can't fathom why some national brand hasn't given the Murphy sisters (don't count out sister Shayne) a shot a stardom like certain other youngins in certain families. But we admire their persistence. Check out more 'RAW' pics from photog IAmEpicLA:
Now that she's been given a larger role on Nicole's show "Hollywood Exes" and she's set to star with Teyana Taylor and Diggy Simmons in "The Start Up" this season. So Bria may get her chance. She's been waiting....

"Hollywood Divas" co-stars Lisa Wu, Countess Vaughn, Golden Brooks and Paula Jai Parker came out to support Elise Neal's reunion with her "Assorted Flavors" burlesque troop last night. See event pics inside....
Actress Elise Neal hosted a special event in Hollywood last night that reunited her with burlesque troop "Assorted Flavors."
In between acting gigs on "Scandal" and "The Soul Man", Elise managed to write a screenplay about the dance troop titled "Timeless."
The reunion was filmed for the first season of the newly revealed TvOne series "Hollywood Divas" from producers Carlos King and Todd Tucker.
On the red carpet, Elise posed with co-star Golden Brooks and "Real Strippers" Virgin Records artist Mike Jay.
Former "RHOA" star Lisa Wu will return to reality tv with a starring role on the new series. Cute look for her.
44-year-old Paula Jai Parker is also a member of the cast.
Countess Vaughn, who shared her "lace front" horror story on national television, will also be on the show. We hope last night's wig was properly attached....

With Kanye West's & Kim Kardashian's wedding quickly approaching (which is now being confirmed by multiple sources that it will take place at the Palace of Versailles), LaLa Anthony & Rachel Roy were on hand for the bachelorette festivities last night in Paris.
In what Kim called the "Last Supper" and LaLa called "Project Wifey", the girls hit the town in Paris last night to celebrate Kim's last few days as unmarried woman (for the third time).
La posted pics of the girls holding hands and running through the city, with Kim wearing a Balmain Couture mini dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels, just like any regular Bachelorette party....
Rachel Roy and Larsa Pippen were there too celebrate. And all the usual friends Brittny Gastineau, Joyce Bonelli, Lorraine Schwartz, Shelli Azoff and sisters Kendall, Kylie & Khloe were all there to share in the fun.
Noticeably missing was Kim's other brown friends--newlywed Kelly Rowland, newest bestie & former stripper Blac Chyna, new mommy Ciara (who likely won't be able to travel this early), and tennis pro Serena Williams. How interesting. But Chyna posted a pic last night saying she was on her way to Paris.
Interestingly, a new report claims Kanye is keeping his own wife-to-be in the dark about the entire wedding. It's unclear if it's because he doesn't trust her attention loving self to keep a secret (he reportedly is controlling how much she checks her phone and internet), or if he just wants to surprise her.
TMZ says they have some deets about the wedding, even if Kim doesn't. And they're changing their story about the actual wedding going down in Florence.
We'll be providing necessary details all weekend about Kanye's first wedding, as much as you can stomach.

Kenya Moore is speaking on the rumors surrounding her return to "RHOA" (kinda), and avoided talking about major rumors by saying stop calling her a size 6. She's a 4.
Check out the Twirl Queen on the "L.A. Hair" premiere red carpet inside...
At this week's premiere of Kim Kimble's "L.A. Hair" in Santa Monica, "RHOA" star Kenya Moore hit the carpet with her long time friend and then chatted it up about some things.
When asked about the biggest rumor out here about herself, Kenya coyly answered, "Ummm that I wear a size 6, but I actually wear a 4." She laughed and joked, "That's the worst thing you could say about me!"
We have a feeling she was semi-serious about that hough.
She only named Cynthia and Kandi as the co-stars she likes working with. But when she was asked if she would ever kiss and makeup with Porsha Williams, she shut it down. "I will not answer that question."
Check out her clips below:

A new biopic is in the works for one of our favorite singers of all time, Whitney Houston. And Angela Bassett will be directing it. Also, the L.A. line-up for the Made In America festival has just been revealed. Get the deets on the new Whitney film and the roster of who will be performing in L.A. inside...
Just two years after her untimely death, iconic singer Whitney Houston’s life will be chronicled in a new Lifetime original movie with the working title, Whitney Houston.
Directed by Golden Globe Award winning actress Angela Bassett (who co-starred in “Waiting To Exhale” with Whitney), the film is scheduled to premiere in 2015.
The Lifetime movie will follow the turbulent relationship between the legendary singer/actress with her singer/songwriter ex-husband Bobby Brown. The film will highlight their relationship from the time they met up and how they dealt with the overwhelming rewards and consequences of fame and fortune.
Now...who's playing Bobby? And who's on YOUR short list to play Whitney?
We all saw how their tumultuous relationship play out in the media, so we're interested to see how the movie will shed light on their relationship behind closed doors. We KNOW y'all remember that sit-down interview Whitney did with Oprah back in 2009, going into detail about how crazy Bobby was.
This movie will be Angela’s directorial debut. She said about the feat:
Although this will be Angela’s first time behind the camera, she starred in a Lifetime film last year in an original movie titled Betty & Coretta, which also starred singer Mary J. Blige.
We are definitely going to catch this when it premieres.
And in concert news….
West Coast fans get hyphy! Or whatever goes down in Cali. We told you earlier that Kanye West would be headlining the Made In America festival in Philly (with performances from Pharrell and J. Cole), and now, the L.A. line-up has just been released as well.
Kendrick Lamar, Rita Ora, YG, Chance the Rapper and Nipsey Hussle will be bringing their talents to the west coast Fest this Labor Day weekend.
This will be a history-making weekend with the first American festival to take place simultaneously on two coasts. If you are feelin’ this line-up (or the Philly roster), tickets are on sale now for both cities at MadeInAmericaFest.com.

Don't expect to throw your hands up at a Mos Def concert anytime soon...he's been banned from the USA. Find out why he can't cross the border inside and get the deets on LA Reid's lawsuit.
We've just learned from a credible report that Mos Def has been banned from the USA! Details are sketchy, but the ish hit the fan once concert promoters in Boston found out he wasn't allowed back in the country. Said promoters released a statement saying,
No one knows what the "issues" are, but Mos Def has gone on record trashing policies of the USA. Remember the video he shot where he called out the government for their horrible treatment of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay? Also, in March, he told Rolling Stone that he feels more comfortable in South Africa than Brooklyn.
Well.....we guess someone in Homeland Security decided he could keep his ass over in South Africa. Note to celebs-don't (publicly) trash the USA while on vacation.
In other news.....
Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid, along with MyMuze, Inc., MyMuze LLC, and ThnTck LLC, is being sued in New York District Court by a former employee who claims she was unfairly terminated because she was a pregnant. She’s claiming pregnancy discrimination and is suing for unpaid wages, overtime pay and damages.
Shola says she initially worked for MyMuze in 2009 (where she was categorized as an intern but also categorized elsewhere as an employee). She was transitioned to ThnTck in 2011, where she was under the management of L.A. Reid.
The lengthy document that we have in our possession contains several 'WTF moments', including the allegation that plantiff Shola Smith-Kirnon sometimes worked 70/hrs wk between September 2009 and October 2011 with NO COMPENSATION! Why? We don't understand....but Shola got hip to the game and now she wants her coin!
She goes onto claim that after she finally did get a check (for a few months salary) it was only for $2K a month. She claims to have still worked the long hours and she never got overtime. She also claims she was unfairly let go after she became pregnant.
We spoke to Shola's attorney, Russell Adler, who had no comment at this time.
So far....LA Reid (who is one of several defendants) has not responded to the lawsuit. If he does, we'll let you know.

Rihanna is a funny gal. She tweeted the above pic after a back and forth Twitter fight with Charlie Sheen this afternoon. Check the deets inside...
Well, this was unexpected. Charlie Sheen, the veteran actor known for not holding his tongue, has joined the reading committee when it comes to popping off on celebs he has an issue with.
Charlie Sheen wrote a long message to Rihanna earlier today via Twitter. And it seems someone taught him how to 'read' a bit. But as we all know, Rihanna is the social media Queen. And when you come for her, she'll come for you with a bigger punch with less effort. Yet, Charlie tried her anyway.
He recapped a failed run-in with the "Talk That Talk" chick that resulted in his (former?) porn star fiancee, Scottine (formerly Brett Rossi), getting her feelings hurt on her birthday. And he went OFF. Charlie said:
"Goooorrrrrrlllllll......If that old queen don't get ha diapers out of a bunch..."
Teeheee. But then Charlie came back with a message in the form of a statement:

While promoting The Pink Print and her new single "Pills N Potions", Nicki Minaj addressed the controversial Iggy Azalea FORBES article and explained how she hopes female rappers will be inspired by the platform she's built.
Nicki Minaj is back on her hustle. Having already dropped "Yassss B*tch" "Chi-Raq" and "Pills N Portions", Nicki Minaj is ready to change the game again with her upcoming disc The Pink Print.

Well here’s a new twist. Tae Heckard and Brandon Jennings won’t be walking down the aisle until Tae ends her domestic partnership with her former girlfriend. Deets inside…
Video vixen/actress Tae Heckard and her Detroit Pistons baller boo Brandon Jennings (seen above vacationing in Maui a few days ago) have a new hoop to jump through before they can legally tie the knot. Ms. Heckard has to end her domestic partnership with her former lover… a woman named Monique Blanton.
We knew Tae had a thing for women (and was in a relationship with a woman at some point), but we didn’t know she was actually married! Seems she and Monique made it official back in 2008. And now that she has conveniently jumped over to men again, she wants out.
And guess what? Tae even took this woman’s last name and now she’s trying everything she can to get out of her “situation” filing for separation in L.A. County Superior Court. TMZ got a hold of the legal documents and according to them, Tae and Monique began calling it quits in 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. Now Tae wants her last name back so she can soon become the new Mrs. Jennings. We're sure Teyana Taylor is somewhere shaking her head.
Good luck with all of that.
