Keshia Knight Pulliam Gives Us Super Bowl Chicken Wing Recipe, Reveals How Foodies Can Stay In Shape

Since the Super Bowl is coming up, share a recipe that never fails for parties.

You can’t go wrong with some good ol’ chicken wings⎯some little drummettes. Everyone is going to eat them no matter how young, old⎯whoever you are. With the chicken wings, I pull my drummettes apart and wash them, set them aside and drain them. Then I season them with pepper, sea salt, Lawry’s garlic powder and then I take some Frenchie’s yellow mustard and I squeeze it on top, and a little bit of Red Hot hot sauce and mix it all together, and it tastes best if you let it sit over night in the refrigerator⎯put it in a Tupperware dish or something. The next day, you take them out and let them get kind of room temperature and then you drudge them in white flour and fry them on the stove. When they float is how you know they’re ready. A lot of people tend to overcook or under cook their chicken but that’s the easiest way to tell. If you keep it on a nice easy bubble and not a warm boil then they’ll come out perfectly golden brown, also turn them over once during the cooking process.

How does a foodie stay in shape?

[Laughs] I love food. My inner fat girl is strong. I don’t know if that’s politically correct but I am greedy girl number one on a regular basis. But I think it’s about moderation. You just can’t od. You can’t eat fried chicken all day every day; otherwise you will look in the mirror and be like, “What is that following me?” But that’s the biggest thing I really try to eat—I’m a very hearty eater but I’m not a big junk food eater. I don’t eat a lot of processed food and when I am cooking, I do eat a lot of vegetables, I drink a lot of water and I eat organic as well. I think that’s important, the quality of the food you eat and making sure it’s minimally processed with no hormones or that kind of stuff. Just be sensible and have balanced meals. Incorporate your vegetables. And I do try to stay light on the carbs because carbs tend to bulk you up. And if I’m gonna eat carbs, then I’m gonna eat good carbs like whole grains, brown rice, sweet potatoes⎯different things like that. And I really like cous cous too. That’s another one of my favorite foods.

You must work out too, what’s your regimen?

I do but I haven’t been as good as I need to. When I’m busy and not getting it in as much or not being as motivated, that’s when I know I need to cut back and not eat as much because it’s kind of a balancing act. You just have to figure out what works best for your body. But I do cardio, of course. I have a gym at the house⎯it actually doesn’t get much love [laughs] but I will go up there and be like let me get my ass on the treadmill real quick [laughs] and I do like doing hot yoga a lot, that’s one of my favorites. You just feel like you get it in, in one 60 to 90 minute class you feel good. And I don enjoy meditating so it’s a combination of both.

What are you working on as far as your production company?

Not anything I want to talk about because I know at this point, going back to renouncing the reality show, I want to make sure everything is done in the can and ready to go before I say anything.

In general what other projects are you working on?

Right now it’s really just about House of Payne, and I’m working on forming a non profit organization that’s going to be geared toward children and supporting girls in performing arts so I’m really excited about that.

TLC's Chilli Praises Cardi B For How She's Dealing With Offset Break Up

TLC's Chilli is sending love and light to Cardi B amid the rapper's recent break up with Offset. In a new interview with People, Chilli praised the rapper for handling her public situation much better than she handled her break up with Usher in 2003.

"I have gone through a public breakup, and it is not easy," Chilli, whose real name is Rozanda Thomas, said referring to her split from Usher. "When strangers know your business and want to chime in while you’re still dealing with the pain yourself, it’s difficult. Breakups are hard on anyone, but can you imagine if strangers knew your business? It’s rough."

Thomas also claimed that Cardi was "braver" than she was as she "just sort of shut down" when her two-year relationship to the R&B crooner ended. "I am proud of her for being strong and standing up for herself during a time that is obviously a very hurtful one," she continued. "She has a strong sense of self. That’s why fans have connected with her this way. She talks about her highs and lows; she is fearless."

Later in the interview, Chilli suggested that she would be open to working with Cardi on new music. "I don’t usually like to collaborate with females, and the reason why is because of Lisa," she added. "That is just a little weird for me, personally. But I think with Cardi B, she is an exception to the rule. TLC and Cardi B all day long. We’ve gotten a lot of love from Cardi. It’s really an honor."

Childish Gambino Reveals Father's Death During Concert Tribute

Childish Gambino wrapped his This Is America Tour in Los Angeles on Monday (Dec. 17) with a special tribute to his father, Donald Glover Sr. The multi-talented artist revealed that his dad passed away a couple of weeks ago, and commemorated his life by previewing a new single.

"I lost my father a couple weeks ago," he announced in a video that was posted on Reddit. "I wanted to play him some of the new songs, but he didn't want to hear them, because he was like, 'I know they're going to be great.'"

He added: "I'm not saying that to talk about music — I say that to talk about trust. That's what love is. I hope you guys get to feel that kind of love."

He later previewed one of the songs he wanted to share with his dad, as seen in a video a fan posted on Twitter. The song sounds like an uptempo tune with heavy horn instrumentals.

The announcement comes shortly after Gambino returned to the stage after suffering from a foot injury. Ahead of the tour, the "Feels Like Summer" rapper also announced that his next album would be his last project under the moniker Childish Gambino. It's unclear if the new track will appear on the final album.

Check out Gambino's tribute to his father in the video below.

VICE CEO Doesn't Believe Desus And Mero's Brand Is Strong Enough For Showtime

Comedy duo Desus & Mero have kept their brand strong since joining forces in 2012 but the newly-appointed CEO of Vice believes their move to Showtime wasn't the best decision.

In an interview with Elle, Nancy Dubuc shared her plans to rebuild the outlet since reports of sexual harassment allegations, unlawful HR practices and the stepping down of Shane Smith came to light this year. Changing the bro culture has removed content and replacing it with more substantial content and finding gems that will also replace the gap left by Desus & Mero.

The guys brought high ratings to the network during their reign from August 2016 to June 2018, but Dubuc doesn't see this happening for their upcoming series at Showtime. “They’re going to a platform that their audience doesn’t pay for,” she said.  “I told them, ‘You can always come back.’”

In an interview with Bossip over the summer, the guys revealed their contracts were cut two months early after news about their deal with Showtime went public. They show consisted of the two commentating on the latest in politics and pop culture while interviewing big names like Gabrielle Union, Rachel Maddow, Diddy, Vic Mensa and Tracee Ellis Ross. They also opened up about their organic approach in comedy was nearly butchered when the network demanded them to work 24/7.

“We were carrying that network on our back, and we felt the weight,” Desus said. “They were talking about, ‘Do not take the weeks off because we don’t get ratings,’ and it’s like, 'Yo, we’re just two people.'”

“We were literally the LeBron of that network,” Mero added. “As a dad, you wanna be around for milestones for like graduations, birthdays…and it’s obnoxious to have to be like, ‘I can’t go to my kid’s graduation because we leave the studio at 3 o’clock and the graduation is at 4.’”

Mero believed the duo were undervalued and not appreciated by the network until it was too late. Their brand transcended platforms as the guys are still active on Twitter and their podcast roots, taking the brand to new heights.

“The channel wanted us to die for this f**king network,” Desus said at the time.  “We’re also the highest rated show on the network, put some respect on our name, have someone come massage my feet.”

We doubt the duo will go back to Vice as excitement for their series on Showtime continues to grow. The guys are already making strides by adding black women to their writing team and recently dropped a teaser for the show.

The brand is strong. #DESUSandMERO are bringing the culture to #Showtime beginning Thurs, Feb 21, at 11p/10c! #BodegaHive
