Hosea Chanchez Needs a Woman Who Can Cook, Says Cheating Isn't a Deal Breaker

Do you have any hidden talents?

[Laughs] I can think of a few but I don’t know if I can mention them in a VIBE interview…nah, I’m just playing but no, not really. Everything is already out there

Word is you’re a major foodie, are you a cooker or do you reap the benefits by eating?

I like to eat more than I cook. I don’t have time to really cook but I love to cook and I’m more an eater.

I was gonna ask you what attracts you about a woman but I suspect that cooking is the way to your heart.

That’s damn sure one of the things about a woman that gets me. I like a lot of different things but cooking is definitely a plus. But most women don’t seem to cook today.

I think you have to get out of L.A.!

You’re right. My mom says the same thing.

What are some of your favorite things to eat?

I love pasta—nothing too fancy. I love soul food but I just can’t really eat it right now. I love Italian. And I love Asian, which is really hard unless you’re dating an Asian woman.

What was your weirdest fan moment, like with someone who ran into you on the street?

The weirdest fan moment would be at an airport in Atlanta. This girl came up to me on the train and she thought I was gonna be my character and I wasn’t. She was disappointed. She was like, “You ain’t gonna go up on me or say nothing?” And I was like, “No, why would go up on you?” And she was just like, “Oh, so you ain’t nothing like your character, huh?” And I was like “Nah.” And she was like “Aw, boo” then walked away.

[Laughs] At least that means you’re doing your job as an actor.

Yeah, and at the Atlanta airport, they keep it real with you.

Give me three do’s and three don’ts for dating coworkers?

Never let anybody get in the way of your work, keep the feeling mutual and no public displays of affection. Three don’ts…just the opposite of the do’s [laughs].

Ok, finish this sentence: Herman Cain is…

Lost in translation.

Last question, is cheating a deal breaker?

No. People make mistakes and sometimes, people do things for reasons that have nothing to do with you. And I think that’s the biggest lesson for a lot of women and a lot of men to learn is that a lot of times you have to deal with the source of why people do the things, that they do. It depends on if it’s something that happens one time or if it’s something that continues to happen. When it continues to happen, you might want to reassess the situation. It also depends on if you’re the type of person that values cheating—the act of cheating versus the lie that’s covered. I’m more about the lie that’s covered it up. I think the other things that come along with cheating are something that you have look at like if you have some sort of sexual issue, if you have personal insecurity of if the person you’re with makes you insecure and you need to feel dominant. There’s so much of that but I think if you’re willing to have those conversations past the cut and dry then it shouldn’t be a deal breaker for anybody.

Anything else you’re working on?

Just my production company and producing some stuff for 2012.

Vic Mensa Apologized To XXXTentacion's Mother Over BET Freestyle Diss

Vic Mensa sparked controversy earlier this year after he took jabs at XXXTentacion's abusive past during a freestyle at the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards. Many criticized the timing of his diss, saying he shouldn't have said it while X's mother was in attendance to accept her son's award. While Vic stated that he doesn't regret his comments, he admitted that he did apologize to X's mom.

"I actually reached out to his mother personally,” the rapper said during an appearance on radio's "The Breakfast Club" on Monday (Dec. 10). "I apologized to her because I didn’t know she would be in attendance… I wouldn’t walk back any of my statements because what I said, I meant. And some more truth came to light not long after."

He also mentioned that although his timing was inappropriate, his talking points were important and necessary. "At the end of the day, I do think that the conversation that I was trying to bring up and that I did bring up is a super necessary conversation," he continued. "Maybe the way of going about it was not the best for the time, but I think the conversation is one that had to be had – talking about violence against women and misogyny in hip-hop, but particularly violence against women. I had a lot of people on the low reach out to me and thank me for that."

As previously mentioned, XXXTentacion was accused of physically abusing his then-pregnant, ex-girlfriend. Vic's freestyle included the lines: "Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/Your favorite rapper is an abuser." Weeks after the viral diss, audio obtained by Pitchfork, revealed the rapper admitting to committing physical harm against her and others.

Romeo May Have Landed A Role In 'Bad Boys For Life'

Bad Boys 3 is officially going down, and there's going to be a lot of new changes. The biggest change seems to be major additions to the film's cast. In fact, Romeo Miller recently hopped on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 11), suggesting that he could be the newest addition to the Bad Boys team.

Romeo shared a photo of an email for a callback to the Bad Boys set on his Instagram Stories on Dec. 11. "When you get callbacks and opportunity to work alongside your idols, @martinlawrence and @willsmith, you go study and go ghost," the rapper-turned-actor said, mentioning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

Romeo isn't the only hip-hop star to possibly land a role in the forthcoming movie. Nicky Jam also suggested he was going out for a part during an interview with TMZ in Nov. 2018. "I actually came her because I'm doing a casting for a movie," he said at the time.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled, Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.

Check out Romeo's post below.

Safaree Says He's Over His Beef With Meek Mill: "He Ain't On No B.S"

Safaree is ready to leave the ill feelings in 2018. In a forthcoming episode of BET's Rants, Safaree dished about his previously beef with Meek Mill, insisting that he was way over the drama.

During the episode, Safaree addressed Meek's new attitude and maturity level. "As far as Meek—and I can see in Meek and everything he does now—he's way more mature than he was even a year ago," Safaree said. "From what he's been through, I can tell he ain't on no B.S. because when I hosted the BET Pre-Awards and all that, [Rick] Ross was there. Me and Ross, we spoke, we chopped it up and Meek was right there."

He also stated that he's moving on and focusing his energy elsewhere. "It was what it was. The s**t happened. Ain't nobody die. I'm over that."

As previously reported, Safaree and Meek's beef started in 2017, over what seemed to be the common denominator: Nicki Minaj. Meek started dating the rapper after her 10-year long romance with the Love & Hip Hop star.

Things escalated after Safaree accused Meek and his crew of jumping him during the 2017 BET Awards weekend in Los Angeles. Footage taken during the incident shows Safaree talking to some people at the same time that Meek hops out of his vehicle a couple of feet away. Soon after, someone is seen throwing a punch at Safaree. At the time, Safaree called Meek the "biggest pu**y on the planet, but he clearly has a change of heart now.

It's unclear if Meek and Safaree have officially made up, but this wouldn't be the first reconciliation that happened involving the CHAMPIONSHIPS artist. He previously made up with Drake in Sept. 2018.

Safaree's episode of Rants airs on BET on Dec. 11.
