God is good! Jussie Smollett is still recuperating, but finally breaking his silence just days after his brutal attack. Not only does he confirm he is doing well, he, and sources close to him clarify stories and rumors surrounding him not giving up his phone, MAGA, and the rope put around his neck during his attack.

Jussie’s broken his silence on his attack, stating … “Let me start by saying that I’m OK. My body is strong but my soul is stronger.” He then expressed thanks, saying … “The outpouring of love and support from my village has meant more than I will ever be able to truly put into words.”

As for the investigation, Smollett says he’s working with authorities and has been 100 percent factual and consistent. He says, “Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe justice will be served.”

Jussie also reiterated his family’s statement — these sorts of attacks are happening daily … and his wasn’t an isolated incident. He says he’ll address the details of the “horrific incident” soon, but adds … “Most importantly, during times of trauma, grief and pain, there is still a responsibility to lead with love, It’s all I know. And that can’t be kicked out of me.”

Jussie Smollett did not refuse to hand over phone records to cops … rather, he didn’t want to turn over his phone … sources directly connected to Jussie tell TMZ.

The sources say cops “informally asked” Jussie if he would surrender his phone … to verify he was talking to his manager on his cell when he was attacked. We’re told he felt “uncomfortable” doing that and declined, but he was never asked about phone records. A Chicago police official had said Jussie refused to turn over both the phone and records. We’re told Smollett has already said he will provide the records, and is in the process of gathering them. 

The sources want to clear up 2 other points. First, there are reports that Jussie told cops his assailants were wearing MAGA hats. The sources underscore what TMZ first reported … that Jussie never said the men were wearing the hats. Rather, they screamed “MAGA country.”  

And the last point … there are reports that Jussie had the rope around his neck long after the incident when he was being treated at the hospital. We’re told that is not the case. He did have the rope around his neck when cops arrived at his building 42 minutes after the incident. The sources say he kept it there to “preserve the evidence.”

jussie smollett no h8 campaign

We are extremely glad that Jussie is doing well and determined to bring his attackers to justice. We do hate, however, he has to clarify rumors of him not cooperating with the police and refute claims he faked all of this. It is very disheartening and demeaning. We are still standing with you, and for you Jussie!

Not Surprised! Jussie Smollett’s “Attackers” Are Struggling to Find Acting Roles…

Does the phrase “You’ll never work in this town again!” Sound familiar to anyone? Well it definitely should to Abel and Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers who were allegedly paid to attack Jussie Smollett. Apparently the brothers are having hard time finding acting gigs since their involvement with the entire scandal came to light. Abel, had actually been signed to a talent agency, but was dropped shortly thereafter.

Does the phrase “You’ll never work in this town again!” Sound familiar to anyone?

Abel, had actually been signed to a talent agency, but was dropped shortly thereafter.

he men who allegedly “attacked” Jussie Smollett at his behest are feeling the pain in the aftermath of the whole debacle … because their acting careers have taken a major blow.

Sources close to the Osundairo brothers — Abel and Ola — tell TMZ … the 2 have come up empty trying to land an agent in the past several weeks. We’re told they’ve reached out to about 10 of the top agencies in Chicago and none have been interested in signing them.

This especially hurts right now because it’s pilot season in the TV biz, and actors like the bros can’t even get auditions without an agent.

What’s worse is Abel actually HAD signed with the Gray Talent Group about a month before his involvement in the Jussie drama became known, and got dropped shortly afterward.

The reason he was given, according to our sources, was generic and didn’t mention the Smollett case … but it was obvious. We’re told the agency told Abel it couldn’t provide him the opportunities he desired, adding … “parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities.”

Unfortunately for the Osundairos … their fitness biz has tapered off as well. Our sources say while it seemed to be booming about a month ago, many of their potential clients turned out to be feigning interest in getting in shape and were really looking to get details on Jussie’s case.

We really are not surprised The Osundairo Brothers are having a hard time finding work. Jussie’s entire scandal, even though he was acquitted, is still toxic and anyone involved in it is tainted. We will be surprised if they ever get real acting roles.

Too Much? Wendy Williams Advises RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice to Leave Her Husband!

Wendy Williams may have lost her marriage, but she has not lost her opinions, especially when it comes to The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple, Teresa and Joe Giudice! As you may already know the couple has faced their fair share of problems over the last few years with both being incarcerated and now Joe faces deportation after learning he has never been an American citizen.  Many would think Wendy would encourage her to stand by her man, but the talk show host wants Teresa to prepare to move on with her life without Joe.

Teresa and Joe Giudice

“If I were Teresa, I wouldn’t even want him home at this point,” she said, adding that she hopes Teresa remains on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. “I would not have him living in my house.”

And when it comes to the couple’s four daughters, Williams said they’re probably better off if their parents are happy.

“I am all about a family staying together,” she said. “But families don’t stay together because of the kids. In fact, sometimes it’s worse for the kids.”

It was revealed on Thursday that Joe is now one step closer to deportation as his appeal against the decision to deport him was denied.

“We are extremely disappointed that the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied Mr. Giudice’s appeal,” James J. Leonard Jr., the Giudice family attorney, told PEOPLE in a statement. “We have filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will continue to fight to keep Mr. Giudice in the United States, the only country he knows, and reunite him with his wife and four daughters.”

Wendy’s comments may be hitting a little too close to home as she is dealing with her pending divorce from her husband of over 20 years, Kevin Hunter. We would like to see Joe be granted some clemency, at least for his four daughters’ sake. On Wendy’s end she is at least keeping it “business as usual;” still hosting her daytime talk show and even making light of her divorce by referring to herself as a “single woman.”

The spokesman says she is pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.

Prosecutors have accused her of recruiting sex slaves for Keith Raniere, who co-founded the controversial self-help group Nxivm and its subgroup, DOS, described as an all-female secret society in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

On Monday, Mack, 36, appeared in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, where jury selection in her trial was set to begin.

Best known for her years-long role as a young Superman’s friend, Chloe Sullivan, on The WB’s Smallville, Mack was charged last spring with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy.
Allison faces a minimum sentence of fifteen years if convicted on all charges. We have to say we are still in shock over everything she has been involved in. This proves that all sex traffickers are not men, and that no one is truly as they seem. What do you guys think of Allison and her involvement in this scandal?
