[PHOTO] Courtroom Brawl Linked To #RHONJ Guest, Kim DePaola (kimdepaola)!

Courtroom brawls come few and far in between–at least in the United States. When they are linked to a television personality its almost unheard of. Well, as you may already know two men were found dead in a burning car owned by  “Friend to the housewives,” of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Kim DePaola, or “Kim D.” as everyone likes to call her.

Kim has not been indicted or implemented in the mens’ deaths, but emotions did run high during a recent court hearing involving the families of the victims and their suspected killers.

Clarence Williams and Gerry Thomas, in court for a detention hearing, were ordered held without bail when the brawl broke out.

The two Paterson residents previously pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Aaron Anderson and Antonio Vega Jr., who were found last week inside a burning Audi.

The car was owned by Kim DePaola, who often appears on the Bravo reality show. Anderson’s mother has said he borrowed the car from DePaola’s son.

The judge warned the families of the suspects and the victims to keep their emotions in check and remain composed.

“I understand you have very strong feelings and may want to blurt something out,” Passaic County Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela said.

But an argument broke out, and people in the gallery yelled obscenities and threw objects.

Thomas’ attorney, Gregory Aprile, shouted to the judge during the brawl that he wanted the names of everyone involved. Aprile said he may ask that they be banned from future proceedings.

Charges are pending for one person involved in the altercation, according to the Passaic County Sheriff’s office.

Obviously “no f***s were given” as the kids like to say nowadays. We are definitely hoping justice is served and the court proceedings beef up their security!

Originality seems to be a thing of the past, especially in 2017. Nowadays innovations come few and far in between. Everything is often watered down or rebooted and repackaged.

Prepare to get your eat–and drink on (sort of)–with Lit Ass Wings!

Amazing Movie & Awesome Cast! Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) FOREVER!

Lionsgate knew it had a hit on its hands when it greenlit the reboot for Saban’s Power Rangers movie.

This film plays off our nostalgia for the simpler, cooler time of 1992 when “five teenagers with attitude” were granted amazing powers and even more amazing costumes and vehicles (Zords) to save the world from the evil sorceress, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Flash forward twenty-five years to the rebooted film and Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Zack (Ludy Lin), Billy (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G), and Kimberly (Naomi Scott) are still teenagers, but rebels and outcasts as well. We officially have “The Breakfast Club meets super-heroism” in the latest addition of Power Rangers!

Much of the series is the same. The Power Rangers are still defending Angel Grove, they still have their dino-themed zords (The Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon, Triceratops, Sabertooth Tiger, and Pteradactyl), Zordon, and Alpha 5. However, Rita, Goldar, and the Putty Patrol are bigger, badder, and deadlier than ever. This time around the The Power Rangers are a freshly chosen team of recruits brought together by mischief and happenstance rather than true friendship. Just as they learn of their amazing new powers, Rita Repulsa, a former Ranger a resident villainess, has been reanimated a hungry for the power of The Zeo Crystal; a rock that apparently ceded Earth with the ability to create life. It is up to the Rangers to overcome their own insecurities and teenage angst to stop Rita from retrieving the crystal and destroying all life on Earth.

#CelebrityCrush- Becky G. (@iambeckyg)

becky g

“They are a power and a force like you’ve never seen before, and no one can ever take them down, the power likes on their side! Go, go Power Rangers!” That is what every grown person in America will be singing on Friday when the highly anticipated Power Rangers movie reboot makes its debut! The original characters, Jason, Zack, Billy, Trini, and Kimberly will be played by a new cast as high school outcasts defending the world.

We love all of the actors in their new roles, but we are currently crushing on only one of them–Becky G!

Yep, this week’s #CelebrityCrush is none other than the new Yellow Ranger! Born, Rebecca Marie Gomez, Becky G., may be new to the superhero movie scene, but she is no stranger to the entertainment industry at large. The singer-songwriter has collaborated with artists like, Cody Simpson and Cher Lloyd. Her first official single, Becky from the Block, garnered rave reviews. She then released her debut extended play, Play It Again, later that same year. Her second single, Can’t Get Enough, featured vocals from Pitbull and topped the  Latin Rhythm Airplay chart in the United States! Last year she released a single Sola, which is set to headline her upcoming debut album!

Besides having the voice of an angel, Becky certainly looks like one! The girl makes us go gaga over her eyes, hair, and body. It may be hard to believe she is the new Yellow Ranger, but we should not count her out. Trini Kwan (Thuy Trang) was quite the bad ass in the original Power Rangers series and we are sure Becky will live up to that mantle. As Trini she will be the superhero movie genre’s first openly gay superhero, as we will find in the second act of the film that she is questioning her sexuality! Besides seeing more of Becky’s legs we are definitely hoping to see her kick some alien ass this Friday and we cannot wait for her album to drop! Expect a review!

[VIDEO] #GirlBye! Omarosa (@OMAROSA) Ditches “The Daily Show” Interview w/ Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah)!

Omarosa Manigault is back in the news again; and like always never for something good.

As you know she has truly become persona non grata thanks to her role in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and now as a senior adviser many think is for presidential relations with the African-American community. (As if she would be an exper!) Well whatever her job is in Trump’s camp, doing interviews with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah must not be one of them as the former reality star villainess bailed on her interview with him!

“Today we were supposed to be joined by senior Trump adviser Omarosa [Manigault] who, of course, was here to promote her episode of ‘Say Yes To The Dress,’” “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah told his viewers last night.

They laughed at his gag about a member of the Trump White House appearing on TLC’s wedding-dress show.

“That is true, by the way,” he added. They stopped laughing.

“But at the last minute, she bailed on us. And the reason she gave — and this is true again,” Noah said, anticipating another misunderstanding, “is that the administration did not want her interview on ‘The Daily Show’ to eclipse the news of the day.”

Noah noted how little sense that made, given that the news of the day was that FBI Director James Comey had publicly rejected President Trump’s claim that President Obama wiretapped him, and confirmed that the bureau is investigating any links between Russia and Trump’s campaign during the election.

All we have to say is #GirlBye! Omarosa tries to act so big, bad, and tough (Does anyone recall her interview on The Wendy Williams Show) but knows she could not handle a serious conversation with Trevor. Maybe she viewed that interview he had with Tommie Lahren and was afraid that like her conservative compatriot she too would have her ass handed to her!

Emoji Queen No More! Kim Kardashian (@kimkardashian) is DETHRONED!

kim kardashian

Kim Kardashian may be the reigning Queen of Reality Television thanks to the ever popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but that does not mean she is winning in every arena.

As you may know, Kim’s emojis, “Kimojis,” have been all the rave for over a year now with the reality star allegedly boasting the most popular celebrity emoji brand on the planet. Well new research and statistic are proving otherwise. The Emoji Queen has been officially dethroned!

kimoji kim kardashian emoji

Apparently not only has Mrs. Kardashian-West been dethroned, there’s been a coup with a number of celebrities topping her in the emoji department. A survey was done and Kim is down on the list in that area of accolades. See below.

To definitively rank all the celebrity emoji apps out there, artsy emoji distribution and monetization platform MojiLaLa [] ran the 2017 Celebrimoji National Survey—a poll that asked 1,000 emoji users which celebrities’ emoji apps they would be most likely to use. Key findings include:

(survey of 1,000 Americans, conducted March 7, 2017)


#1: Ellen Degeneres (Ellen Emoji Exploji) (44%)

#2: Charlie Sheen (Sheenoji) (21%)

#3: Ariana Grande (Ari) (16%)

#4: Wiz Khalifa (Wizmoji) (15%)

#5: Steph Curry (StephMoji) (15%)

#6: Kim Kardashian (Kimoji) (14%)

#7: The Game (12%)

#8: Justin Bieber (Justmoji) (11%)

#9: Fetty Wap (9%)

#10: Fabulous (Young EmOGis) (9%)

#11: Rick Ross (9%)

#12: Amber Rose (MuvaMoji) (7%)

#13: Blac Chyna (Chymoji) (6%)
#1: Lady Gaga (29%)
#2: Taylor Swift (25%)
#3: Carrie Underwood (25%)
#4: Katy Perry (24%)
#5: Luke Bryan (24%)

80% of emoji users are self-proclaimed fans of celebrity emoji apps. While 57% say they like celebrity emoji apps but don’t actually use them, 23% love them and actively use them. Only 20% of Americans “think celebrity emoji apps are stupid.”

Even if Kim is no longer “Emoji royalty,” at the end of the day she is still THE Kardashian to be and see! We are sure she will drop another make up line or book of selfies to make up for this!
