As you recall, Donald Trump was the host of the show until his racist comments on Latin immigrants prompted NBC to oust him from the show. Unfortunately, Trump has moved on to politics, namely the bid for the presidential candidacy. We are just glad Celebrity Apprentice is back; and with a cast this diverse and interesting we just know this is going to be the best season yet!

From The Pages of OUT Magazine (@outmagazine)–Jussie Smollett (@jussiesmollett), “‘I Am a Gay Man. I Am a Gay Man. I Am a Gay Man”

Fox’s Empire is still the hottest show in the country and we have, in part, Jussie Smollett to thank for that. The thirty-one year old actor who plays the middle son of Cookie and Lucious Lyon, Jamal, has one hearts one line and one song at a time since the show’s debut. Today, he steals more hearts as he covers OUT Magazine, discussing his view of himself as a gay man and relationships:

jussie smollett out magazine hey mikey atl

“I am a gay man with an extremely open heart. God, I’ve never had to talk about this, so I’m trying to find the words. If I had to label myself, I would label myself as a gay man…With that said, I believe that love is the only thing that matters, and I would hope that anybody would leave themselves open — not to gender, but to love. I would hope that people would not close themselves off from what could be if, lo and behold, you meet somebody that just sweeps you off your feet, and you just can’t do anything about it…If we truly believe that we are born this way, then why do we try to stifle the way we were born? If I fall in love down the road with a woman, I’m going to love that woman.”

As you recall, last March, Jussie officially came out to the world via his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show following his “sort of outing” by former cast mate, Malik Yoba. Either way it takes a lot of courage to discuss who you are and why you love who you love. Jussie’s words and decision are commendable. Be sure you grab the latest issue of OUT Magazine “out” now!

Congrats! Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks)–Supermodel to Super Mommy!

Congratulations are definitely in order for everyone’s favorite “she-ro,” Tyra Banks! As of yesterday the former talk show host and mogul too to Instagram to announce the birth of her son with her boyfriend, Erik Asla,  via surrogate:

tyra banks baby hey mikey atl

The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here. He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone. York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.

We could not be happier for Tyra, and realize this is a dream come true for her and Erik. The bouncing baby boy is their first child together, and the supermodel’s firstborn. The miracles of modern technology and reproductive options have really given a lot of women the chance to experience motherhood later and later in life. She also joins the likes of Lucy Liu, Camille Grammer, Melissa Etheridge, and Giuliana Rancic as women who have welcomed children via surrogacy.

Thus far no name has been given for the new little bundle of joy, but we are sure whatever his name is he will grow up to be just as awesome, just as stellar, and just as loved as his mother is. Congrats again Tyra!

Wiz reminded him the name already belonged to Max B, who is currently incarcerated. Kanye responded with a tweet of “respec” for Max B, but for Wiz that was not enough. He tweeted the following:
