Jussie Smollett has not been in the limelight as of it late, as he has been gearing up for yet another legal battle with the ongoing criminal case against him in Chicago. He is now fighting the appointment of a special prosecutor.

The actor’s legal team filed three motions Friday, obtained by TMZ, seeking to overturn the appointment of a special prosecutor … arguing it would expose Jussie to double jeopardy.

According to the docs, Jussie is trying to reverse the order issued last month by a Chicago judge, who faulted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and laid the groundwork for Jussie possibly facing prosecution for allegedly faking the now infamous “attack.”

Jussie’s attorney, Tina Glandian, takes issue with the judge’s apparent conclusion Jussie is guilty of staging a hate crime. In the docs, Jussie’s legal team claims the Osundairo brothers attacked Jussie, got caught and then blamed him.

According to the docs, Jussie’s attorney is floating the idea Abel and Ola Osundairo were motivated by homophobia, and she cites text messages from Ola degrading another man as a “fruit.” His legal team is seeking grand jury testimony from the two brothers.

It’s another twist in the ongoing Smollett saga … as you know, the charges against Jussie were essentially dropped, even after the grand jury indicted him on 16 felony counts of lying to cops.

Jussie we will be glad when all of this is over, and we hope somehow you can reclaim your life and some semblance of a career.

They say the setbacks in life are signs you are about to be set up for something amazing and transforming! That defiitely seems to be the case with Deshawn Snow’s transformation from laid back housewife to a certified babe (and MILF)!

As you recall, Deshawn is one of the original housewives of the Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, but lasted only the first season allegedly because she was “too human” for the show. Shortly thereafter, she and her then husband and former NBA player, Eric Snow, filed for divorce and her life was never the same. Deshawn is now back and from these pictures we can tell she is ready to slay whatever obstacles are standing her way.

Check out a few photos of her from Season 1 of RHOA in 2008 and now!

As co-owners, they’re in good company — rapper Macklemore and his wife, Tricia Davis, former Microsoft executive Terry Myerson and his wife, Katie Myerson, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and his wife, Anu Nadella, are also members of the ownership group.

“Seattle means so much to me and Ciara. We’re fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture,” Russell Wilson said in a statement. “When I got here in 2012, Seattle was a place that I felt I could call home forever. And obviously because of the Seahawks, and now because of the Sounders, it makes that really come to life. We’re really excited about building that winning culture. This city is a special place.”

Ciara issued a statement of her own, saying, “This is not only a special moment for Russ and I, but for our kids as well. When we walked into the building and our kids were running around with their names on their little jerseys, it meant a lot for so many reasons. It’s an honor to join the Sounders team and have the unique opportunity to represent female ownership within major league sports.”

We are so happy for Ciara and Russell! They are both successful, have a beautiful family, and seem to be winning on so many levels. We love seeing Black Love perforate. What do you guys think of this big news for The Wilsons? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Amara La Negra (@AmaraLaNegraALN) Praises Beyonce for “Brown Skin Girls,” Cites Blue Ivy As Justification

Beyonce definitely worked wonders on the original tracks she produced for Disney’s 2019 The Lion King remake soundtrack. One of the runaway hit singles from this album is none other than Brown Skin Girls,  a track that celebrates melanin and women of color with darker skin tones. Many felt as though Beyonce, being a lighter skinned woman, should not be able to sing or speak on the magnification or beauty of darker skinned women of color since she knew nothing of their experiences of colorism. Naturally, fans and The BeyHive , have come to her defense, and in that number includes Love & Hip-Hop Miami’s Amara La Negra.

In a recent interview with Kontrol Magazine, Amara states Beyonce as the mother of Blue Ivy, a brown skinned Black girl, being reason enough for her to create a song celebrating them and denouncing colorism. “I feel like people are reading too much into what she [Beyonce] is saying in the song. It’s very empowering and loving. Also, her own daughter is brown skinned, why wouldn’t she want to create something uplifting her. Let’s also not forget her father is dark skinned, she may have other darker skinned family members, and so is her band mate and best friend, Kelly [Rowland]. People just don’t know. Instead of continuously fighting about this issue we should be embracing it, the message of the song, and embracing one another…”

We definitely agree with Amara La Negra on this issue. She has fought against colorism since she was first introduced to the world via reality television and believes in the beauty of all people of color no matter their shade. Beyonce created a beautiful, uplifting some for a group of women who all too often are marginalized. You can catch her full interview with Kontrol Magazine coming soon! Thanks for speaking out Amara!
