The “Poor, Unfortunate Souls” at Disney have some decisions to make when it comes to casting for the upcoming live action remake of The Little Mermaid. The coveted role of the film’s larger than life villainess, Ursula, is being sought after by hit singer, Lizzo, although comedian and actress, Melissa McCarthy is reportedly in talks with Disney for the role. This is quite the conundrum as both are amazingly talented women.

On Friday, Variety reported that actress Melissa McCarthy is in “early talks” to join the project as the tentacled villain from the original 1989 movie.

But fans on Twitter immediately put up the “Truth Hurts” singer as the perfect person for the role.

Lizzo agreed. She even shared a 2018 video of herself dressed up as Ursula, and singing a rendition of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from the movie.

“I’M URSULA. PERIOD,” she wrote alongside the video.

We have to say we are #TeamLizzo when it comes to her playing Ursula. She has the size, voice, charisma, and she’s a really amazing singer. Melissa needs to show us she’s got the chops to pull off Poor, Unfortunate Souls. It’s easy all all she has to do is perform a few bars and won’t cost her anything–but her voice!

It’s Splitsville! Kenya Moore & Marc Daley, Announce They’re Divorce After 2 Years of Marriage!

We really wish we could “say it ain’t so,” but the swan song has played and it’s official Kenya Moore, and her husband, Marc Daley have announced they are divorcing. The beautiful couple are calling it quits after just two years of marriage. To some it comes as a shock, to others it was expected as Marc was never to keen on being on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or Kenya’s return to the drama of the series–and there’s been plenty leading up to the debut of the twelfth season.

It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly. Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”

We really hate to see Marc and Kenya break up. They are such a beautiful couple. It looks like the reality television curse on relationships continues. This all also comes as a shocker to us after we just saw them discussing their fertility issues on the Tamron Hall Show,  where she discussed having to stick herself with hormone shots and take suppositories just so they could conceive little Brooklyn. Hopefully these two will be great co-parents and maybe even friends for her sake. Well Kenya welcome to RHOA these next two seasons for you are about to be LIT!

“Pose” Star Indya Moore Claps Back at Claudia Jordan Over Perceived Transphobic Comments!

It is never a good look or a good time when two ladies we love so much are at odds on such a controversial topic. Apparently, Pose star and trans activist, Indya Moore, is displeased with Claudia Jordan’s recent comments and questions concerning transgender people. In fact, she has outright declared Claudia’s comments and inquiries to be transphobic and off center to more important issues in the trans community; like the high number of murders of transgender women of color.

Claudia Jordan

The tift began when Claudia tweeted the following after her interview with actor Malik Yoba, who recently revealed he is attracted to transgender women and came onto her radio show, The All New Morning Rush on 105.7 Dallas, for an interview and to discuss the forthcoming Visibility March set for September 28th in Washington, D.C.

As you can see above Indya, as a transgender woman,  was offended. When it comes to interaction with transgender people it is considered rude and offensive to bring up their genitalia as it relates to their gender identity. This can be especially offensive coming from a cisgender (denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex) person.

Indya’s retort including the murder of so many transgender women of color, the most recent being a seventeen year old girl who found tied up and burned to death in a car is heart wrenching and timely. Claudia may have been genuinely asking from a place of trying to understand, but with a topic that sensitive and still taboo, she should have done some research surrounding the etiquette needed when discussing this subject matter. Indya recently wore earrings with portraits of all the aforementioned murdered transgender women this year. We hope these two can come to a place of understanding over this issue. They are both such fun, beautiful, and talented women!

You can catch Claudia’s entire interview with on Smooth R&B 105.7’s radio’s site. Check out snippets of the interview below:

Hosea Chanchez, age 14, when he was molested by his friend’s father

I’m Hosea Chanchez and when I was 14 years old I was molested BY my friends father. This man is a predator, preying on children who’s trust he’s falsely built through lies, manipulation, threats and secrets. I hope this truth helps to stop child molesting predators from sexually assaulting more children. Pedophiles have no place in our society they hide in the open and rape children who are afraid to speak up because of shame, guilt, fear, denial and the thought that no one will believe them. I’m doing this to help parents and young children become aware of some of the signs and better protect themselves from sexual predators. (Swipe to read my TRUTH)

Check out the slides below:

We are so glad Hosea found the courage to come forward with this information. What happened to him is just wrong and depraved. We are sure there will be more to this story now that he has actually named his assailant. Sadly, there may be more children this man harmed. Let’s keep Hosea in our prayers.
