Is 2012 the Year Hoes Stop Winning?

Pause.

I don’t refer to women as “hoes.” It’s crass, judgmental and rude, and too, it’s a term solely created to police women’s sexual experiences while men’s sexual adventures are encouraged as part of the personal development. But “hoes be winning” was a popular catchphrase in 2011, fueled by the come-up of unliked reality stars who garnered rocks, video vixens who got red carpet shine next to ballers and a specific genre of single woman who was bitter and needed any excuse to tear down another woman who had what she didn’t. Consider my use of “hoes” as necessary for today’s conversation, perhaps the equivalent of an adding “a ‘m*****f***er’ so you ig’nant n****s hear me.” (Cue Lauryn)

The initial question was actually asked by a commenter on NecoleBitchie.com in response to a story that Drake had spent New Year’s Eve, not with video model Dollicia Bryan. Earlier in the week, her team released a press statement announcing that she and Drake were an item. “Yes, Drake and Dollicia are dating,” said the rep. “They’re both in L.A. right now spending the holidays together.” It seemed believable enough, as Drake recently tweeted a picture of Dollicia at Saddle Ranch restaurant in L.A.

But then Saturday night came, and Drake appeared on Carson Daly’s NYE countdown show, attempting to keep warm with his ex, Zineb “Nebby” Samir. Maybe you’ve heard of Nebby. Drake appeared on Toronto’s FLOW 93.5 and declared she was the inspiration beyond his first hit single “Best I Ever Had.” More recently, he name-dropped her on “‘Look What You’ve Done” where he raps, ‘It’s like ’09 in your basement and I’m in love with Nebby / And I still love her but it fell through because I wasn’t ready.‘

Drake’s dating track record is worse than Joe Budden and Kanye combined, but there he was, aired before, literally, one billion viewers, bunned up with the girl who was there before he was at the top of game but still in the game. (He was on Degrassi: The Next Generation at the time they dated.) --Demetria L. Lucas

Police Conducted Welfare Check On Wendy Williams Over Alleged Poisoning

Police reportedly conducted a wellness check on Wendy Williams at her New Jersey home earlier this year after an anonymous caller claimed the TV personality's husband, Kevin Winter was poisoning her, People reports.

The incident reportedly occurred during Williams' television hiatus in Jan. 2019. According to the police report obtained by People, police arrived at Williams' residence shortly after the call was made. Hunter reportedly answered the door, claiming his wife was recovering from an illness.

Authorities noted that Hunter was "hesitant" to let the police inside the house but eventually did. There, they found Williams in bed with a "blanket covering her from neck to toe." Williams told the cops she was recovering from a broken shoulder.

Williams reportedly "became tearful" when they asked if there was any truth to the poisoning allegation, but she ultimately denied that any wrongdoing was taking place. Police said Hunter "then responded saying something to the effect of there had never been any calls to his house regarding domestic violence."

While the couple might not have received calls to the house, there have been rumors of domestic abuse. Many assumed that was one of many reasons why Williams filed for divorce against Hunter earlier this month. Even so, the Williams maintained that she was leaving on good terms.

"I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs,” he said a recent episode of her self-titled show. "No matter what the outcome is or what the future holds, we are still The Hunter Family and I will continue to work with and fully support my wife in this business and through any and all obstacles she may face living her new life of sobriety, while I also work on mine."

Phylicia Rashad plans to embark on a new career journey, and its base is Broadway. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the famed thespian will direct a forthcoming play titled Blue.

The production, originally scripted by Charles Randolph-Wright, will hit Broadway in 2020. It's based on a South Carolina family and their journey of self-exploration and the battle of un-hesitant trust in the midst of their wealth. "I am happy to be directing this play that brought me so much joy," Rashad said. "It affirms the importance of theater and its power to touch the human heart."

Randolph-Wright also expressed his elation in the play's resurgence. Rashad initially acted in the production's debut in 2000 and again in 2001. "Part of the inspiration for writing Blue was that I had never seen a family like mine on stage," he said. "I am thrilled that Blue will continue to open doors to a more diverse world, and also spread a little joy."

As she prepares for a new venture, Rashad has continued to showcase her one-of-a-kind talent in front of the camera. The 70-year-old actress recently guest-starred on NBC's This Is Us, a recurring role on FOX's Empire, and on the silver screen with Creed II.
