Now that the end of NeNe Leakes‘ infamous shade-throwing is coming to an end, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is moving on to a new endeavor – ABC’s Dancing with the Stars!
The television network announced on Tuesday morning that the 46 year-old entrepreneur will be joining the likes of singer Billy Dee Williams, Full House actress Candace Cameron Bure, Wonder Years actress Danica McKellar, Olympic figure skaters Charlie White and Meryl Davis and more.
During the live announcement on Good Morning America, NeNe made sure to make it clear that she is definitely worthy of her spot in the line-up, adding (in true NeNe fashion):
I do not have two left feet. I can tell you that.
As for Billy Dee Williams, he took to his Facebook page and had this much to say about joining the dance competition:
Before he drops his second studio album Cadillactica, Mississippi’s very own Big K.R.I.T. has dubbed this week as the “Week of K.R.I.T.”
In a recent interview with the Rolling Stone, the Mississippi-native shared the meaning behind the title of his most recent song, “New Agenda.”
“Twenty-fourteen is all about growth musically and new agendas,” K.R.I.T. tells RS. “I’m excited for my supporters to hear the sound I’ve been creating.”

The S-N-double O-P D-O-double G is definitely a man of surprises, but he’s also a man of letting bygones be bygones.
Almost six years after Oprah Winfrey put Snoop Dogg on blast in 2008, saying he was a misogynist, prejudice against women in his music, it appears that the two have buried the hatchet.
Even though Snoop was “pissed that she didn’t give him a chance to defend himself,” the former talk show host and rapper chatted it up at a pre-Oscar party in Hollywood and took the above photo to mark their positive, first-time encounter with each other on Friday night…Good for them!
Just in time for the Oscars and live-red carpet, a new tune by singer-songwriter Janelle Monae hit the web. The “Electric Lady” shared her excitement for the new music on Twitter saying,
I had so much fuuuun reimagining this song for E’s [hashtag] Oscars coverage [hashtag] robertpalmer [hashtag]simplyirresistible JAM.
Check out Monae’s remake of Robert Palmber’s 1988 hit, “Simply Irresistible” which is featured on E!’s 2014 Live from the Red Carpet Soundtrack.
The Carters are on the move! Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z were seen hitting up the Movida / Mason House do a lil turnin’ up and partying in London on Saturday night (March 1).
The couple were in town for the European leg of Beyonce’s world tour, The Mrs. Carter Show. Over the next few days until March 6th, Beyonce will be performing at the famous O2 arena, performing fan favorites and more.

They say that with every life experience there is a lesson to be learned.
Well in the case of Da Brat, she is going to have to learn the expensive way.
Back in 2007, the Chicago-native Shawntae Harris violently pummeled a former NFL cheerleader, Shayla Stevens, over the head with a glass bottle.
The ex-Atlanta Falcons athlete sued the rapper 2 years later and was awarded $3.7 million for her loss of earning and for “causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.” Now according to TMZ Sports, the case has resurfaced and Harris has been ordered to pay up an addition $2.6 million as an added punishment.
I mean how can you not appreciate Spike Lee‘s bluntness?
Earlier this week, the veteran filmmaker made headlines after speaking passionately about gentrification in New York City.
While speaking at the Pratt Institute, he was asked whether he could look at the concept of gentrification from another point of view or from a more positive frame of mind, Lee immediate cut him off and started off by saying, “Alright, let me just kill you right now.”
He went on to point out the relationship between safety and a higher Caucasian count in urban communities, voicing his disapproval of “hipsters” taking over historical areas of the city:
Then comes the motherfuckin’ Christopher Columbus Syndrome. You can’t discover this! We been here. You just can’t come and bogart. You can’t just come in the neighborhood and start bogarting and say, like you’re motherfuckin’ Columbus and kill off the Native Americans. Or what they do in Brazil, what they did to the indigenous people. You have to come with respect. There’s a code. There’s people.
President Obama has decided to give back to the community in another big, yet small way.
It’s been two years since the murder of Florida teen Trayvon Martin and the Commander-in-Chief (alongside the First Lady Michelle Obama) decided to start a community initiative which will focus on helping young minority boys & men succeed and avoid violence.
There will also be a “My Brother’s Keeper Task Force” under the direction of Cabinet secretary and assistant to Obama, Broderick Johnson. Other senior officials set to take part in the initiative are Education Secretary Arne Duncan, Attorney General Eric Holder, Labor Secretary Thomas Perez and more.
