Tamar Braxton Gets Into Shouting Match With Lolo Jones On 'Big Brother'

The live feed, which keeps fans engaged on what’s going on in the house 24/7, was cut after the two got in each other's faces.

Fans of the reality show Celebrity Big Brother believe that an alleged altercation between Tamar Braxton and Olympian Lolo Jones led to speculation that the latter houseguest was going to leave the show.

According to Entertainment Tonight Canada, the hurdler reportedly got into an argument with the singer and reality star. The live feed, which keeps fans engaged on what’s going on in the house 24/7, was cut after the two yelled and got very close to one another.

”I’m gonna f**king start because you want to tell me,” said Jones to Braxton, who reportedly said ‘don’t start.’ “You asked me what the f**k and then you f**kin ‘pop off. So why the f**k would I not get mad? You do this every motherf**king day. Like don’t f**king start with me… What you need to f**king do is calm down and stop f**king popping off on everybody.”

Some fans of the show claim on social media that Jones slapped Braxton’s glasses off of her face. However, that is up for debate. Jones is not Braxton’s first enemy in the house, however. She and Kandi Burress have discussed their “frenemy” relationship since the show began.

Janet Mock Becomes First Trans Woman To Score Overall Deal With Netflix

Janet Mock just made history. Per Variety, the director, writer and producer is the first transgender woman to score a major deal with Netflix.

The 36-year-old’s deal with the streaming giant is reportedly for three years, and features the exclusive rights to her television series Pose, as well as first-look for future feature film projects.

“As a best-selling author, producer and director, Janet Mock has demonstrated she knows how to bring her vision to thrilling, vivid life,” Netflix VP of original content Cindy Holland says of Mock. “She’s a groundbreaker and creative force who we think will fit right in here at Netflix.”

“As someone who grew up in front of the TV screen, whether that was watching talk shows or family sitcoms or VHS films, I never thought that I would be embraced,” Mock says of her groundbreaking new endeavor. “And more than embraced. Given not just a seat at the table but a table of my own making.”

“It is truly groundbreaking for Netflix to empower Janet Mock, a trans woman of color, to create and greenlight her own films and TV shows,” says Nick Adams, director of transgender media and representation at GLAAD. “We can’t wait to see the stories she’ll bring to the screen.”

Beyoncé as well as Barack and Michelle Obama also scored major, multi-million dollar distribution deals with Netflix in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

'Dear White People' Season 3 To Premiere Summer 2019

Dear White People first came to Netflix two years ago, following the experiences of black college students among their white peers at ivy league institution, Winchester University.

The storyline originally grabbed the attention of viewers at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Deadline reports that season three is set to premiere Aug. 2 starring Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, and Marque Richardson.

The cast released a video as a part of their announcement where they debated the debate salty grits vs. sweet grits.

Ironically or strategically planned, the announcement of the season premiere falls on Juneteenth as it commemorates 154 years of the abolishment of slavery in the U.S.

Season two left viewers on the hunt for Winchester's secret society with Samantha White (Logan Browning) and Lionel (DeRon Horton), as reported by Entertainment Weekly. Their clues led them to meet Giancarlo Esposito, the narrator of the show.

Creator of the series, Justin Simien, also told EW that season three will take place in the spring whereas the last two seasons took place in the fall. "I'm really curious to see what happens in the springs, to see what happens with a little bit of distance from these characters and sort of allow them to absorb what just happened to them," he said.

In May, Simien took to his Twitter page to announce that he would be hosting a short film competition, open to the public. Aspiring filmmakers will have to produce a six-minute short film following the theme "Dear _______." The winner will have their film screened at the third season premiere of Dear White People. 

Y’all. This is huge. @netflix (ya know the giant global platform for) is letting me hold a short film competition leading up to @DearWhitePeople Season 3. This. Could. Be. Your. Break! pic.twitter.com/YFK6tIZIiO

Whoopi Goldberg Reacts To Lizzo's 'Sister Act 2' Tribute

Lizzo shut the house down at the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards on Monday (June 17) with her tribute to the 1993 film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit. Following her performance, Whoopi Goldberg – the original star of the film – congratulated Lizzo on her amazing performance.

Lizzo performed her single "Juice" at the awards show. She channeled Lauryn Hill and the Saint Francis Academy's finale performance of "Joyful, Joyful." At the start of Lizzo's performance, she and her backup dancers were dressed in choir robes. Just like in the movie, the dancers were asked to remove their robes, where they then joined the rapper on stage. Lizzo also recreated much of the original choreography.

After catching wind of Lizzo's tribute, Goldberg responded on Twitter on Tuesday (June 18). "Girl YOU knocked the crap out of last night, and as your newest fan... kudos kudos kudos!!!" Goldberg tweeted.

As you may know, Goldberg starred in the 1993 sequel as Sister Mary Clarence, an undercover Vegas showgirl who infiltrated a strict Catholic school. Lauryn Hill and Sheryl Lee Ralph also starred in the film.

Check out Lizzo's performance and Goldberg's reaction below.
