The Game Gifts Mom Of 8 With A Month's Worth Of Groceries

The Game pays it forward with his new #YoMamaMyMama campaign. 

Between hosting a Los Angeles summit designed to unite Bloods and Crips and partnering with the Los Angeles Police Department to stop the violence, The Game has committed to using his influence for a greater good.

In his latest initiative, the Cali rapper shifts his attention to women he believes deserve the utmost respect: mothers. “I figure with all the tragedy, and all the brothers killing each other, cops killing brothers, brothers killing cops, the one thing that people care about the most around the world is their mothers,” he said of his latest endeavor entitled "Yo Mama, My Mama."

In partnership with actress Zulay Henao and PartnersInKynd, The Game took to Instagram to encourage his fans to share their love for their mothers in a friendly contest. Yvette Hicks, a single mother of eight, was named inaugural "Mother of the Day" and went on the special shopping day with the rapper.

The rapper took Hicks to a nearby supermarket where he treated them to $1,000 in groceries and had a little bit too much fun in the process.

I remember being a kid in the grocery store with my mama.... Ain't nothing changed lol.. #YoMamaMyMama

Wendy Williams Reportedly Returns To Daytime Talk Show In March

In December 2018, Wendy Williams took a hiatus from her long running daytime talk show to tend to her “personal and physical well-being.” Since taking time to nurture her body back to good health, other entertainers like Nick Cannon have stepped in to keep the show running. Now, the 54-year-old host will return on March 4, the New York Post reports.

In a statement published to her social media channels, Williams thanked her staff for “tirelessly holding it down for me” while the program’s production company Debmar-Mercury praised the former talk radio host on her recovery. “Wendy Williams is an incredible talent with the most unique voice in daytime,” the statement reads. “We can’t wait to welcome her back to her iconic purple chair on the set of her show.”

Williams recently discussed her Graves’ disease diagnosis on her show, an immune system disorder that affects the thyroids. Under doctor’s orders, she was mandated to rest for three weeks. The revelation arrived months after Williams fainted during a taping of a Halloween-themed episode.

According to the American Thyroid Association, the health condition is found “7-8 times more common in women than men.” The disease also affects the muscles behind the eyes, onsetting inflammation.

Charlamagne Tha God Calls Jussie Smollett A Clout Chaser In DOTD Roast

Thursday morning, (Feb. 21) Jussie Smollett turned himself into police after evidence proved the hate crime, in which he alleged to have been beaten by two MAGA hat wearing men as they hurled racial and homophobic slurs at him, was a lie.

After weeks of gaining support from some of entertainment's biggest names, news of Smollett's orchestrated attack disappointed many. The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God took Smollett to task and dubbed the Empire actor "Donkey of The Day" for his lies and deceit despite admitting he had doubts from the beginning.

"I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he's a black man and why wouldn't I believe a black man who tells me he's been the victim of a hate crime? Why wouldn't I believe a gay man who tells me he's the victim of hate crime?" the ShookOne author said.

Throughout the roast, Charlamagne played clips of Jussie speaking from index cards during his Los Angeles show shortly after the alleged attack, and his sit down with Robin Roberts. However, Charlamagne said Jussie dropped clues about his lie during both public appearances.

"We all should've known Jussie Lyon was lying when he went on Good Morning America and was more upset people didn't believe him, rather than him being upset about the crime that allegedly happened to him," he said.

Charlamagne sums up Smollett's actions simply on his desire not just for attention, but to also be a martyr.

"Now I know, the magic question everyone is asking is why? Why would he make something like this up? He wanted to be the gay Tupac. Jussie Lyon wanted to be a martyr," Charlamagne said.

"He wanted to be a symbol of someone who stood up against hate in America. He wanted the same admiration you see Kaepernick getting for taking a knee for black people. He wanted the attention that Meek is getting for standing for the rights of those in prison. Jussie Lyon wanted to be the gay Tupac."
