“Hooray for Kim K”–at least that is what her recent humanitarian efforts are making us say. In the last ninety days she helped free 17 prisoners  and now has headed, with her doctor in tow, to assist a newly freed man remove his facial tattoos. As we all know, where you get a tattoo can vastly alter others’ perception for you. For an ex-convict with facial tattoos his life chances to gain employment and work legally can be greatly reduced by his criminal history and appearance. Kim Kardashian seems to now be flexible her growing humanitarian clout by helping inmates any way she can.

Azaria Algarin of Charlotte, North Carolina, detailed how Kardashian West, 38, not only responded to a letter her brother Paul Algarin — who was incarcerated over the course of seven years — wrote to her while in prison, but the reality star also she flew in after the 2019 Met Gala to meet with him.⁣

“Recently my brother was released from central prison where he served an accumulation of 7 years,” Azaria captioned a post shared Tuesday, which featured a series of Instagram photos of her and her brother meeting Kardashian West and Kanye West. (Azaria has since deleted the caption.) “Throughout my brothers time in prison he shared his dreams, aspirations, and goals with me- I always thought some were unrealistic & silly.⁣”

“He asked me for Kim’s address so he could send her a letter & I rolled my eyes & never sent I,” Azaria added. “Eventually my mom sent it to him so he would stop harassing us.”

To Azaria’s surprise, Kardashian West responded — and then some.

In addition to taking the time to fly out to Charlotte, Kardashian West also brought her doctor with her to help start the procedure of removing 24-year-old Paul’s facial tattoos. ⁣

“Fast forward to yesterday. Kim flew in to CLT with her doctor to have lunch with us & start the procedure of removing my brothers face tattoos,” Azaria added. “Never in a million years did I think Kim would write him back (or even read his letter), fly in right after the met gala (not to mention her 4th baby is due at any minute), invest in our family & laugh / relate to us over the smallest things.”

“I’m so proud of my brother for taking steps in the right direction. Our relationship hasn’t been the easiest,” she admitted. “I pushed him away for years out of hurt for his absence, but yesterday was all the feels. I felt like we were children again & that he wasn’t gone for the last 7 years. Such a special day that I will forever cherish.”⁣⁣

We have nothing but applause for Kim and her recent work. People can talk about prison reform and rehabilitation but she is actually doing something about it. Kudos Kim, we think you will be one helluva lawyer!

Pinkett Smith, 47, told People in a new interview that she “never wanted to get married” — but felt pressured into it by her family.

“I had never seen a happy marriage,” she told People, saying she “adored” her partner, but did not want to marry.

Her mother, known as Gammy, called Will crying — which Pinkett Smith said was “infuriating” — and the meddling mom said “You have to get married.”

The couple married on New Year’s Eve in 1997 when Pinkett Smith was in her first trimester of pregnancy with son Jaden, now 20. The pair also share daughter Willow, 18. And Will has a son, Trey, 26, from his first marriage to Sheree Zampino.

Pinkett Smith told People that she’s happy she did get married, but that she and Smith, 50, still do not label themselves as married.

“It’s more of a life partnership … I don’t own him. He doesn’t own me. He has to be his own person first, and vice versa … Love is freedom,” Pinkett Smith told People.

We are glad The Smiths have worked out and are continuing to make each other better people. Kudos to Jada for being so transparent!

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!

Africa

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are heading to Africa — this time as a family of three!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed on Thursday that they will carry out a royal tour in Africa this fall. In a post on their @SussexRoyal Instagram page, they also hinted that son Archie, born on May 6, will be coming along: “This will be their first official tour as a family!”

They will visit the country of South Africa, with Prince Harry also making stops in Malawi and Angola. He’ll also do a “short working visit in Botswana on route to the other countries,” according to the Instagram post.

“The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the commonwealth and beyond,” the couple wrote on Instagram.

We love that Prince Archie’s first trip is to Africa, it will let him connect with part of history as his mother is a biracial woman, and his maternal grandmother is clearly Black. We cannot wait to see the pictures!
