Published July 28, 2017

It's been an eventful week for celebrities, from Bernice Burgos addressing her feud with Tiny to Wendy Williams admitting to almost being fired because of Bill Cosby.

See what some of your favorite famous faces had to say below:

  1. Bernice Burgos said she's 'disappointed' with her feud with Tiny:

    "I was shocked with myself, too. I'm very disappointed with what I did. I’m not saying I regret it but I learned by being on social media. Social media will sometimes put you in a place where you have to fight with people that you don't know. [I replied] because I was listening to social media."

  2. Wendy Williams recalls the moment Bill Cosby tried to get her fired:

    "I'm a young girl, I'm in my 20s. It's like 1992 or '91. I’m on the air in the morning doing my gossip report. The GM is in his office — this is like seven o'clock in the morning. Cosby is on the phone talking to the GM. The GM is definitely agreeing with Cosby and figuring out what do we do with me."

  3. Charlize Theron responds to Tia Mowry’s claim that she’s rude:

    "What a bitch… Well, you can't go by that. I’m really nice at SoulCycle actually, because once my endorphins kick in, I'm actually almost too friendly. I'm always touching people, like, 'Hey!’… I’m not an eye-roller, but I would be like, f**k off."

  4. Tia Mowry addresses feud with Charlize Theron:

    "The only thing I have to say about that is I don't know Charlize. It was all blown out of proportion. I respect her. I think she's amazing."

  5. Tiffany Haddish really wants to work with Bill Cosby:

    "I still want to work with Bill Cosby. I don't care, I'll drink the juice. I'll drink the juice. I'll take a nap. I don't give a damn [laughs]. But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something."

  6. Amber Rose compares the word 'slut' to the N-word:

    "It's the same way that Black people use the N-word as a positive word now, right? It's still very controversial. Some people don't like that, right? But, it makes Black people feel comfortable that, you know, they took the word back. That's it. It's the same thing as slut."

  7. Tamera Mowry-Housley isn’t responding to haters anymore:

    "I have made a conscious effort now to realize that we have more positive people towards us than negative. I don't want to give any more attention to the naysayers. I feel like, more than ever, couples are mixing, and that's a beautiful thing. The only way we're going to move ahead and forward is if we ignore the haters."

  8. John Singleton is defending R. Kelly:

    "No, I don't think he's misunderstood. He has a bunch of girlfriends. A lot of people have a bunch of girlfriends. The women that he's with are adult women and they made the decisions to be with him and they know what they're getting into, so I don't see what the controversy is really about."

  9. Rick Ross reveals the odd and sexist reason why he never signed a female rapper:

    “You know, I never did it because I always thought that like I would end up f*cking the female rapper, f*****g the business up I’m so focused on my business. I just have to be honest with you. You know, she looking good and I’m spending so much money on the photoshoots. I gotta f**k a couple times.”

  10. Issa Rae talks why she pushes the boundaries of sex on 'Insecure':

    “For HBO, we have so much license to show black people loving and f*****g. Why wouldn’t we take advantage of that? We don’t get to see black lust in a normalized and natural way that isn’t hypersexualized. Young black people have sex. Sometimes it’s good sex, sometimes it’s bad sex, sometimes it’s revenge sex. There’s so many different facets. It’s such a privilege to show that and it feels so real. The writer in me is always excited to write those scenes. The performer is like, “Oh, shit. Why the fuck did I write this because I got to do it?”

  11. Michelle Obama talks how racist attacks have only made her stronger:

    “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut. Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
