Signing Off? Rico Pruitt & Signal 23 TV Part Ways!

It has definitely been a wild ride these last few months with the cast (s) of About Him! Last summer this talented group of young men took the nation by storm with a story that brought to the forefront the pain and pleasure of young Black gay men coming of age. As you already know, one of them was Rico Pruitt, who starred as “Justin,” on the hit web series, and later in About Justin. We were already enamored with Brandon Karson and Gary Lavard on screen, but adding Rico into the mix was liking adding a little extra spice to make the show “extra nice!”

However, all things come to an end eventually; and from the looks of it Rico has decided to end his relationship with Signal 23 TV! The popular web star took to Facebook and Instagram announcing not only his departure from About Justin, but the company as well. Check out his post below:

 Signal 23 TV declined to comment. We are surprised to see Rico and Signal 23 TV are parting ways, but this is not unheard of. As you recall other original About Him stars, Brandon Karson (Damien) and Rahim Brazil (Kendall) parted ways with the company in December of last year. Rico is a good friend to our site and we definitely wish all parties involved the best of luck in their future endeavors.

You can catch an in depth interview with Rico Pruitt and his new project soon on HeyMikeyATL EXCLUSIVELY!

Chin Check Her! Emmett Till’s Accuser, Carolyn Bryant Donham, ADMITS SHE LIED!

emmett till and carolyn bryant donham

Carolyn Bryant, the woman who accused Emmett Till of whistling at her, and ultimately resulted in his brutal murder, has ADMITTED SHE LIED!

Carolyn has never spoken to the press about what exactly happened between herself and Till, but her then husband, Roy Bryant and his half-brother, J.W. Milam were both acquitted of his torture and murder in 1955. They later revealed in an interview with Look Magazine the brothers gloated and said they had no choice but to do what they had done in defense of Carolyn’s honor. They were each paid $3600 for their interviews.

Carolyn has since remarried twice over the years and is now known as Carolyn Bryant Donham. While speaking to author and scholar, Timothy Tyson she lied about her testimony.

via Vanity Fair:

emmett till

In a new book, The Blood of Emmett Till (Simon & Schuster), Timothy Tyson, a Duke University senior research scholar, reveals that Carolyn—in 2007, at age 72—confessed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony. “That part’s not true,” she told Tyson, about her claim that Till had made verbal and physical advances on her. As for the rest of what happened that evening in the country store, she said she couldn’t remember. (Carolyn is now 82, and her current whereabouts have been kept secret by her family.)

Tyson’s book, to be published next week, was preceded by the definitive study of the case, Devery S. Anderson’s masterful Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement, which was published in 2015 by the University Press of Mississippi. (Last week, John Edgar Wideman’s meditation on Till, Writing to Save a Life, was named a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.) Still, no author save Tyson has ever interviewed Carolyn Bryant Donham. (Her ex-husband and brother-in-law are both dead.) “That case went a long way toward ruining her life,” Tyson contends, explaining that she could never escape its notoriety. His compelling book is suffused with information that Donham, over coffee and pound cake, shared with him in what he calls a “confessional” spirit.

Carolyn, in fact, had approached Tyson because she was writing her memoirs. (Her manuscript is in the Southern Historical Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill library archives and will not be available for public view until 2036, according to Tyson.) Her daughter had admired Tyson’s earlier book, Blood Does Sign My Name, about another racism-inspired murder committed by someone known to Tyson’s family. And Tyson himself, a Southern preacher’s son, says that when he sat down with Carolyn, she “could have fit in at a Tyson family reunion”—even at its local church. Clearly, he observed, she had been altered by the social and legal advances that had overtaken the South in the intervening half century. “She was glad things had changed [and she] thought the old system of white supremacy was wrong, though she had more or less taken it as normal at the time.” She didn’t officially repent; she was not the type to join any racial reconciliation groups or to make an appearance at the new Emmett Till Interpretive Center, which attempts to promote understanding of the past and point a way forward.

But as Carolyn became reflective in Timothy Tyson’s presence, wistfully volunteering, “Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him.” She also admitted she “felt tender sorrow,” Tyson would note, “for Mamie Till-Mobley”—Emmett Till’s mother, who died in 2003 after a lifetime spent crusading for civil rights. (She had bravely insisted that her son’s casket remain open at his funeral in order to show America what had been done to him.) “When Carolyn herself [later] lost one of her sons, she thought about the grief that Mamie must have felt and grieved all the more.” Tyson does not say whether Carolyn was expressing guilt. Indeed, he asserts that for days after the murders, and until the trial, she was kept in seclusion by her husband’s family. But that “tender sorrow” does sound, in its way, like late-blooming regret.

This is ENRAGING! Lock her in the nearest Black Gate Prison! Trump is about to reopen them! A boy lost his life over her lies and his mother, God rest her soul, lost her only child! The only good that came out of this was that it galvanized The Civil Rights Movement as African-Americans across the nation realized that not only were Black men and women in danger but so were children; and that racism was not just a Southern problem. Rest in peace Emmett, your death was not in vain!

Cyber Terrorism? Kontrol Magazine’s (@kontrolmag) Website Hacked By Turk Hack Team!

Cyber terrorism is a very real thing and it looks like Kontrol Magazine may be the latest victim of it! Apparently, the sprawling Atlanta based publication had its website, www.Kontrolmag.com, hacked today by the notorious Turk Hack Team! As you may recall, back in 2013 this organization single-handedly immobilized over 400 American websites. It all went down early this afternoon when one of Kontrol’s writers’, Ronda Brooks, tried to log on to the site and received the following notification.

#RIP…Bishop Eddie L. Long Has Passed…

bishop eddie l. long

Death has reared its ugly head yet again and invaded the ranks.

No we do not have another celebrity death, but someone who was a celebrity in his own right–and a pastor. It is with a heavy heart we report that Bishop Eddie L. Long has passed.

There has been a report on Channel 2 Action News, and  reports are coming in from social media, members of his congregation, and namely his former Minister of Music, Byron Cage. Byron tweeted the following below.

byron cage tweeting about eddie long death

As you may already know Bishop Long was the pastor of megachurch, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. He was known for years for his large congregation, affluence, and powerful sermons of hope and love throughout the metro-Atlanta area. In recent years he was embroiled by controversy, namely allegations of sexual misconduct. In the last year, however, it was his dramatic weight loss that caught national news. Originally, Bishop explained his weight loss was attributed to a raw, vegan diet; and later a still as of yet unexplained illness. Then homophobic pastor, Kim Burrell, alleged his weight loss was due to engaging in a homosexual lifestyle. He died from an aggressive form of cancer.

Whatever anyone’s personal feelings are about Bishop Long he was still a man and a human being. We will be praying for his family and congregation during this tragic time. Feel free to leave your comments and APPROPRIATE condolences below.

It’s No Longer “About Him!” Signal 23 TV (@mr23atl) & Brandon Karson (@mrbrandonkarson) Part Ways!

brandon karsaon signal 23 tv

“Out with the old, in with the new.” That’s a saying that goes perfectly with any new year and sometimes people, places, and situations. 2016 was chalked full of momentous events, one of which was the runaway hit web series, About Him. The show won the hearts of thousands of people nationwide, and has fans eagerly anticipating its second season.

about him

Well we have some news–Brandon Karson will NOT be a part of the series’ second season, nor is he involved with Signal 23 TV any longer.

Brandon, who portrayed the series’ main character, “Damien,” took to Facebook recently, and posted a message informing fans of his departure from About Him. Check it out below:

brandon karson leaves about him

We reached out to Brandon for further commentary, but he states this post is his official statement in regard to what has happened. Naturally, there are two sides to every story and we reached out to the CEO/Director of Signal 23 TV, “Mr. 23” himself, Henderson Maddox; for a statement concerning Brandon’s departure. Henderson, thankfully, gave us his take on the situation in a brief Q & A:

1. Did Brandon resign or was he terminated? If it is the latter, why?
First I would like to thank you for the time and your platform to clear up any rumors. It saddens me that these steps had to be taken.  Before the last few days I would like to say neither. After unfavorable behavior my team and I decided to take a step back momentarily to thoroughly evaluate how to move forward with Mr. Karson. Lets just say there were some business dealings that were unfavorable and we wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt and research a further. Ironically days later the entire cast of About Him was brung into the office to let them know that the story of About Him would not continue with the character of Damien as the story line. This was something I had been facing for about two to three months that had absolutely nothing to do with any of the cast members. It was a hard decision to make but in this business you are faced with difficult decisions.

Splitsville! The Engagement to Roger Bobb (@BobbcatFilms) is OFF! Demetria McKinney (@demimckinney) Shows off New Boyfriend, Eric Nealante Phillips (@Nealante)!

Singer and actress, Demeria McKinney is making headlines again and this time it is juicy–REALLY JUICY! Apparently the power couple of she and film producer, Roger Bobb are over, done, and has been buried in a plot in “Splitsville!” This comes as a shocker as in January she and Roger were announcing their engagement and planning for a Fall 2016 wedding. As you recall, he popped the question to her on New Year’s Day. Well we definitely do not see a wedding in their future, and are more shocked that they are not together anymore. Just two months ago we saw Demetria at the Atlanta premiere of Roger’s latest film Bad Dad Rehab arm in arm with him.

Demetria shocked us all when this weekend she revealed not only are she Roger no longer together, but debuted her new boyfriend, Eric Nealante Phillips. Eric is a songwriter and music producer who has worked with the likes of Timbaland & Magoo, Jodeci, TLC, Destiny’s Child, Usher, and Beyonce just to name a few. Demetria posted a picture of her and Eric on Instagram this weekend stating:

We are happy for Demetria, but have to wonder what went wrong between she and Roger? Even more importantly, how did she move on so soon? We can only speculate he might have gotten cold feet about the wedding, after all look how long it took him to propose. Her new beau, however, might be just what she needs to launch her music career even further and give her the shine she deserves. We love you Demetria, just be careful!
