L&HH ATL Recap: K. Michelle And Rasheeda Throw Candles, Erica Goes Ham

Last night's Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta saw the women fed up. A cat fight started brewing early as we saw Karlie Redd recording a diss track against K. Michelle. Rasheeda echoed her dislike for K and pondered whether she should spit a few bars on the song too.

What better place to contemplate than at Mimi's housewarming party? Mimi "mistakenly" (Translation: The producers told her to) invites enemies K. Michelle and Rasheeda to the soiree and it's clear the women are not fans of each other. They barely speak. Finally K. Michelle blasts Rasheeda for talking smack about her on Instagram while Rasheeda says K was running her yap to the blogs. Rasheeda tries to walk away but not before catching K dissing her hubby Kirk. Oh, it's on now. The two start fighting and K even throws a candle at Rasheeda. Eat hot wax! The show's security catches the two before a full-on assault.

Later, Rasheeda and Kirk talk about the fight. Apparently K's diss that Kirk wears "three earrings" is wrong because he wears four earrings. Kirk says that K can question his sexuality all she wants but he won't have her putting the paws on Rasheeda.

Elsewhere, Mimi and Stevie J struggle to co-parent now that Mimi has her own pad. Stevie wants to know where Mimi lives to pick up his daughter (or stalk her). She won't tell him and he continues to push. Stevie then asks Mimi if she's dating anybody and asks if her hypothetical new man has a body like his. In the same breath, Stevie compliments Mimi for looking good, says he'll stalk her down and then asks for a kiss. What a guy.

The producer has his own issues mounting. His other other lady, Joseline, is not paying him management fees. She does a show and refuses to give Steebie a cut because he didn't set it up. We find out that Jos has been working with Dawn, her friend and new manager. Stevie is not happy.

Joseline and Karlie Redd reconnect to dish about their love lives. Karlie says that Benzino is trying to smash and then reveals a new secret about him. According to her, Benzino claiming he smashed Joseline and was showing Karlie X-rated flicks of her. What? Aren't Benzino and Stevie boys? Did Jos smash the homies? Jos denies it completely and says that she only smashes men with necks... and Benzino does not have one.

Things appear to be going well for Scrappy and Erica as the two decide to sit down with their moms and talk about the drama that they're causing. After Dee apologizes to Scrappy for bringing Shay to the studio, it seems that this little family may have a chance. Never mind. We spoke too soon. The dinner party, which also includes Erica's momma, turns into total cluster. Neither mother is feeling the relationship and each blames the other kid for the problems. Erica's mother claims Scrappy cheated on her recently while Erica shrieks that Momma Dee is a meddler that doesn't know her place. The four start yelling at each other. Scrappy tells Dee to stop calling Erica a "bitch" but this causes only more yelling. Dee confesses that if she was Dracula she'd sink her fangs into Erica and drain her of blood. Erica has had enough. Dee's disrespect coupled with Scrappy's complacence make for a volatile mix. Erica suddenly goes insane and gets physical. It's unclear whether she was trying to hit Scrappy or his mama but either way, she aiming for blood.

Security breaks up the fight and Scrappy tells Erica to give back her engagement ring. He and Momma Dee hang out on her driveway until the ring is returned.

Oprah Responds To Viral Video Of Her Eating Unseasoned Chicken

A hilarious old video of Oprah Winfrey making an uncomfortable face as she dives into a piece of unseasoned chicken has been circulating the Internet all week. While these sort of silly videos wouldn't usually garner a response from the billionaire, Oprah surprised everyone when she shared a video explaining the chicken-eating experience and her initial reaction.

To give you some context, the video is a clip from The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006, in which O invited her guest Anna Ginsberg to make her award-winning chicken dish. After one bite, it became clear that Oprah wasn't too pleased with the chicken's bland taste. She even asked at the time if she could add a little seasoning.

I often think about the time Oprah did a cooking segment with a woman whose chicken recipe won $1 million, and Oprah's jaw dropped when she tasted it and realized the lady didn't even add seasoning

— Spencer Althouse (@SpencerAlthouse) December 9, 2018

Now, more than 10 years later, Oprah is setting the record straight. In her new video posted on Instagram on Thursday (Dec. 13), she noted that she likes to provide a pleasurable experience for her guests but also live in her truth. On that particular day, she was presented with a dilemma. "I was having a moment of trying to decide: Do I want her to have a great time? What is my real moment of truth?" she said. "Because the truth for me was that I'm used to having salt and pepper on my chicken. That's just the truth...That's what I was thinking, 'This chicken needs some salt and pepper.'"

So that's that; Oprah has spoken. She may have played it off at the time, but like many others, she would prefer her chicken with seasoning.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the show’s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her family’s food insecurities, meaning they didn’t have much to eat.

“We know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma – the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

“We want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment – home is wherever the love lives.”

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."
