Reality TV Recap: Brandy & Ray J, Basketball Wives, What Chilli Wants

A recap of the reality shows that keep you glued to the tube


BRANDY & RAY J: FAMILY BUSINESS

Seeing the For the Love of Ray J 2 reunion from Ray J’s perspective made him seem like less of a douche bag. He humbly apologized to Cocktail for cursing her out and “kept it one hunnid” with Mz Berry by admitting that he still wants to be a player. However, Brandy’s lack of love was emphasized when Flo Rida reneged on his invitation to The Grammys. Disappointed, she reached out to family and friends to help cheer her up but the pair has been seen hanging out lately, so hopefully we get to see their relationship unfold on the show.

 

BASKETBALL WIVES

Rashidah appropriately used Evelyn’s birthday dinner to call Jen phony, which started an argument. However, tension eased up at the actual party when Royce presented her birthday gift--a random sexy dance performance by her troupe Fantashique. I guess it really is hard being a basketball wife, girlfriend, ex, or babymama, especially when cameras are rolling (*side eye*).

 

WHAT CHILLI WANTS

Tionna hooked Chilli up with Dovette, a tall, dark and muscular Adonis who was also sane and a successful businessman. Miss I Don’t Want No Scrubs wasn’t interested in getting to know him because he wasn’t her type physically. Chilli is impossibly picky but it seems like what she really wants is Floyd Mayweather. Hopefully she’ll stop fronting soon.

 

Did Ray J do the right thing by apologizing to Cocktail or was she dead wrong for crashing the set? Will he ever be ready to settle down? Would Brandy and Flo Rida be an interesting couple to watch? Do basketball wives fail in the maturity department? Is Chilli too picky or is she really just fronting on her feelings for Floyd?

Beyonce Trolls Fans By Releasing Tongue-In-Cheek 'Formation' Tour Merch

While Beyonce was able to whet the Beyhive’s insatiable appetites with the Homecoming documentary chronicling her highly-favored Coachella performance, it looks like they’re still hungry for more.

It’s been nearly three full years since Bey embarked on the Formation World Tour, and fans have demanded concert footage of the show for virtually the entirety of those three years, to no avail.On the merch section of her website, new apparel advertising the Formation World Tour is available for purchase, and it’s delightfully petty.

Shirts adorned with “Where Is The FWT DVD?” is written all over the shirt, much to the chagrin of those who are eager to know the answer to that question. They are sold in white, gray, pink and light green, and go for $40 a pop.

Fear not, fans. There could be an answer about the footage's whereabouts sooner rather than later. As we reported, Bey signed a $60 million deal with Netflix, which will reportedly distribute three projects with the superstar. Two of those projects are carefully under wraps, but with the anniversary of the Formation World Tour’s start around the corner (April 27), we’d recommend you to stay on your toes.

Lemonade, the album accompanying the FWT, will be released to streaming services outside of Tidal on April 23, the third-anniversary of the album’s release.

Kylie Jenner Teases New Travis Scott Song In Makeup Promo

Kylie Jenner got a little help from her boyfriend Travis Scott in order to promote Kylie Cosmetics’ latest KYBROWS eyebrow pencil. In an ad promoting the upcoming product, Jenner utilizes the “SICKO MODE” musician’s reportedly-unreleased song as background music. In the trippy track, Scott says “she fill my mind up with ideas, I’m the highest in the room, hope I make it out of here…” While we’re not sure if new music is certainly on the way from the Grammy-nominated rapper, Jenner’s KYBROWS drops next week (April 29). Scott’s most recent project, ASTROWORLD, was released in 2018, and he continues to enjoy the fruits of his labor. His February ASTROWORLD tour stops at Los Angeles’ The Forum added him to the list of artists who have sold out the venue more than once in a 12-month span.

A NYPD Cop Falsely Arrested A Black Man Lied On The Paperwork, But Still Has His Job

A New York police officer has faced no punishment for falsely arresting a black man and lying on his police report about what a witness statement.

In June 2016, officer Xavier Gonzalez arrested investment adviser Darryl Williams at the 125th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station. Gonzalez alleged Williams, 58 at the time, pickpocketed straphangers on a 4 train.

Gonzalez was undercover at the time and wrote in his report that Anthony Osei, who was also on a northbound 4 train, said Williams stole his phone. However, Osei, a paint shop clerk, told the New York Daily News Gonzalez lied.

When Willaims sued the city and the NYPD over the arrest, Osei, swore in an affidavit, reviewed by The Daily News, he didn't tell officers Williams stole his phone.

“A cop came up to me and said, ‘Did he take your phone?' I said, ‘No, I have my phones and wallet.’ Two weeks later, I get a call from the prosecutor. I told them the same thing."

In court, Osei testified on Williams' behalf stating "I defended him (Williams) because it was the right thing to do.”

Williams worked at the Sanitation Department for nearly two decades when he was arrested. He had private clients and his financial license was suspended for two months. He spent $1,500.

There's a process called “arrest overtime” in which an arrest made toward the end of a cop's shift helps bolster his or her overtime pay. It's a beloved practice that drives up a cop's pension.

“I have no trust in cops anymore,” said Williams, 60, now retired. “He’s putting perfectly innocent people in handcuffs. People who don’t have the resources I have, they could go to jail for something they didn’t do."
