Yikes, yikes, and yikes! The NAACP Image Awards took place last night and some of the best and brightest African-American actors and actresses received some pretty prestigious awards. One actor, however, was butt of a few jokes–namely a roast–by Chris Rock, Jussie Smollett! The comedian went on on Jussie, declaring him a “waste of light skin” and asking the audience “What was he thinking?” These jokes came even AFTER he was told to steer clear of any jokes about the embattled actor.

Although Chris Rock was told to steer clear of the Jussie Smollett case at the NAACP Image Awards, the comedian couldn’t help but toss a couple barbed jokes towards the “Empire” actor.

“They said no Jussie Smollett jokes. I know. What a waste of white skin. You know what I could do with that light skin? That curly hair? My career would be out of here. F—ing running Hollywood,” Rock joked.

“What the hell was he thinking?” Rock asked. “From now on, you’re Jessie from now on. You don’t even get the ‘U’ no more. That ‘U’ was respect. You don’t get no respect from me.”

Smollett was nominated for an NAACP Image award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his work on “Empire,” but lost to “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jesse Williams. The award was announced at the non-televised 2019 NAACP Image Awards dinner on Friday, which Smollett did not attend.

Too soon? That is what we are thinking, but many are applauding Chris, stating he is only saying what so many people are thinking. Jussie’s charges have been dismissed and he is a free man, but as we can see this is going to haunt him for the rest of his life. What do you all think of Chris Rock’s comments?

YIKES! Lindsay Lohan Loses Her MTV Show & Night Club!

Just when we thought actress Lindsay Lohan was on the set up for a comeback, it looks like fate has other plans. Apparently not only has her MTV show, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, been canceled, but her nightclub, Mykonos, which served as the backdrop of the series has also been closed.

Just when we thought actress Lindsay Lohan was on the set up for a comeback, it looks like fate has other plans. Apparently not only has her MTV show, Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, been canceled, but her nightclub in Mykonos, Greece which served as the backdrop of the series, has also been closed.

The club opened in May 2018, and the show — which follows its staff’s daily lives — premiered in January to decent ratings.

But viewership then plummeted amid less-than-stellar reviews. The Hollywood Reporter called the show “vapid and tedious.”

“There was a renewal idea that producers hoped would perk it up for a second season,” said a source close to the production. “It would be turned into a show about Lindsay and [her mother] Dina and [sister] Ali, [but] that wasn’t going to happen.”

The show didn’t have “enough drama,” the source added. “They wanted ‘breakdowns.’ That’s not where [Lohan] is at with her life anymore. Their personal business doesn’t need to be aired on television; it’s already in the papers anyway.”

Another source close to the network said it’s still trying to salvage the show.

Meanwhile, a phone number listed for the Mykonos club on TripAdvisor wasn’t working when Page Six attempted to call.

Another number listed on the club’s website connected to Lohan Nightclub in Athens.

A source told us of the apparently defunct Mykonos club: “A friend had reservations this week, and the club just called and said that they will not be opening this season.”

Another source vacationing in Greece last month told us that the club wasn’t open then, either.

“The locals said it was a waste [of time to go],” said the vacationer.

A social media commenter posted last month of the Mykonos club: “They advertised being open for [the] summer season, specifically late May. We drove past and it’s literally [deserted] .?.?. The Lohan sign is stripped off.”

A Lohan rep confirmed that “she is not doing another season” of the show.

We wonder if Lindsay has any other ventures in the works. Lately it seems like she has really been trying to get her life back on track. Honestly, we are rooting for her!

Jordyn Woods hopes viewers get to see the “real” her in the highly anticipated two-part finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which will address her alleged affair with Tristan Thompson.

“Everyone has their truth and their story, so you just go with it,” Jordyn, 21, said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Monday in response to the explosive trailer. “Everyone has the right to speak their truth,” she added.

When asked about how she thinks she will be portrayed, the model explained, “Hopefully, like myself, and the real me will shine.”

Although the scandal is still very fresh, Jordyn is doing her best to stay focused on her future.

“Life moves on,” Jordyn told ET. “Money doesn’t stop. The world doesn’t stop. And hopefully, everyone is just, you know, going forward.”

As for what’s next for Jordyn, she said she’s “staying busy, staying positive and just working. I don’t think I’ve ever been more busy.”

“I was on Grown-ish,” she revealed to ET. “That comes out next month, and, yeah, hopefully, more stuff is coming soon.”

We know all too well that reality television can make or break a person’s reputation based on their perceived behavior. Jordyn may get the short end of the stick when it comes to how the show deals with it, but the important thing is that Khloe and her family now see Tristan’s true colors and she has moved on. This episode is set to air on June 23rd.

[VIDEO] Clearing The Air! O.J. Simpson Says He NEVER Slept w/ Kris Jenner, & Khloe Kardashian is NOT His Daughter!

“Enough is enough,” is what O.J. Simpson is yelling to the masses as he is speaking against prevailing rumors that he and Kris Jenner slept together and that he is the biological father of Khloe Kardashian.  O.J. took to social media to clear his name in a video.

“Enough is enough,” is what O.J. Simpson is yelling to the masses as he is speaking against prevailing rumors that he and Kris Jenner slept together and that he is the biological father of Khloe Kardashian.  O.J. took to social media to clear his name in a video.

The “If I Did It” author called reports about the alleged tryst “bogus, bad, tasteless” in a video on his new Twitter account.

“Never, and I want to stress never, in any way shape or form, have I ever had any interest in Kris romantically or sexually,” said the 71-year-old ex-NFL star, adding: “and I never got any indication that she ever had any interest in me.”

“The Juice” said Kris’ ex-husband Robert Kardashian — who died of cancer in 2003 — was “like a brother” to him.

Addressing rumors that Khloe Kardashian is his daughter, Simpson said: “Khloe like all the girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here, but facts of the matter is she’s not mine.”

The denial comes after Norman Prado, who claims to be Simpson’s ex-manager, told Page Six last month how the disgraced gridiron great once bragged about a 1990s hot-tub hookup with Kris.

The one-night stand allegedly happened when the ex-running back and then-wife Nicole, and their pals Robert and Kris Kardashian were vacationing together.

The Kardashians divorced shortly afterward in early 1991 and the Simpsons split by early 1992.

In his video, Simpson denied that Prado was ever his manager, saying “we many have done a deal here or there or whatever but none of these guys was anything remotely like a manager.”

Simpson has previously denied ever sleeping with Kardashian, telling a former prison guard he befriended that he “would never tap” the TV-personality.

He closed out his video by wishing his 574,000 followers a “Happy Father’s Day” and telling them to “take care.”

We are not sure what to believe, but we hope it can now die down. In our book, it is old gossip, and none of the parties involved are coming forward with DNA tests. We will keep you posted.
