It has been quite the weekend here at HeyMikeyATL as we spent most of the day overwhelmed by a few hundred posts from fans of Basketball Wives star, Tami Roman from our website–NOT COOL!

As you may already know early Saturday morning Tami took her to Bonnet Chronicles Instagram to say some pretty hurtful things about Bawn TV, alleging she has not been paid for her work in District and calling on her fans to boycott the owner of Bawn TV, Anthony Bawn and his husband, Brentley, to say the least.

Tami has since removed the post from her Bonnet Chronicles Instagram account; and no one from her camp has responded to our request for a statement at the time of this post. We reached out to Anthony Bawn and he tells us that not only has Tami been paid, but this uproar was over $1750 that he owed her from work earlier this year! We definitely understand the principle of the matter but we definitely wish this could have been worked out away from social media. We want to see everyone win and actually like Tami!  Anthony released the following statement via Instagram:

We really hate to see this happening to Bawn TV. We know Anthony and his husband, Brentley Bawn–who is not affiliated with Bawn TV–personally and know they strive to be professional. We have also interacted with Tami on a few occasions and often found her to be an amazing and reasonable person. The hurtful comments made by her fans, however, are too much. Especially when it comes to harassing parties not involved in this matter. We are wishing both parties the best in this matter and hope they can come to a swift, peaceful resolution.

Keith Pettway as “Jeffery Blackville” in Bawn TV’s “Blackville”

Sadly, this debacle is proving costly as Keith Pettiway, star of Blackvillehas backed out of the series. In addition, Brandon Anthony, went to Facebook to announce he is no longer associated with Bawn TV. We hope Keith will reconsider his position and return to Blackville. It is such an amazing show and we would love to see more of Keith with the original cast!

We will keep you posted…

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!
