  1. Wendy Williams refuses to have Tamar Braxton on her show:

    "Tamar, she wants to come to our show, but on account of — I can’t. I’m sorry you all, I can't. Like, I can't. What do you say?" She continued, "I used her powder room for God's sakes! I went into her refrigerator and took water, so it's different than any other guest coming here. And I know you all would love to hear the rest of the story, but you are gonna have to hear that someplace else. I am tapped out!"

  2. Drake reveals his plans to stop making music, eventually:

    "I'm sure I'll stop [making music] one day," says Drake of rapping. "When it starts to feel like I'm making it up. Hopefully I'll catch it before I ever get there, right? But right now it feels like we just started, so I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. But I do plan on expanding — to take six months or a year to myself and do some great films. Music's always there."

  3. Sheree Whitfield opens up about her new prison bae:

    "This is probably the strongest bond I've ever had. You gotta think about it. We have nothing but time to talk and get to know one another. A lot of my other relationships, we didn't communicate. It was more physical so you take the physicality out... Me, I like to be stimulated on a deeper level."

  4. Mel Gibson reveals how Tina Turner tried to save his career:

    "I was a wild boy, I used to get loaded. She sent me a photograph of myself one time and she said, 'Please don't mess this up.' Because she was worried about me. I was touched by that, that went in somewhere."

  5. Joe Jackson says he hasn’t seen Janet Jackson’s son yet:

    "Well, I haven't seen the baby yet, no," he said. "I've raised enough kids myself, so..."

  6. Vivica A. Fox points out where she went wrong in her relationship with 50 Cent:

    "I wish I knew now how to treat a man like that then what I knew then. Because I thought when we were dating younger that he wanted a partner and what he really wanted was to take care of me. I didn't know that so I was working hard trying to match him, instead of letting him be the man."

  7. Torrei Hart has a new man:

    "I'm having a good time. I'm having fun. I’m living my life. There is a guy who is special to me. But I'm not going public with anything. I feel like there's no need to unless I'm married. What's the point?"

  8. DeRay Davis opened up about his two girlfriends:

    I’ve been with one for five years; the other one for about… 2 ½ years… They’re very comfortable, cause I’m very open, I don’t make it where it’s all “Oh, look what I’m doing!” I’m not a player.”

  9. Lil’ Kim admits to Biggie pulling a gun on her:

    “It happened. The story [that Jermaine told] is not exactly how he said it, but it’s very close to the truth,” she said. “We did have a very violent relationship. I hate that, but for a while, that was all I attracted. It is what it is. He was everything. You know how it is when you’re in the industry, the guys get you whatever you want, but you can’t do sh*t. You can’t do nothing.”

  10. Mary J. Blige explains that she wants to get to a point where she doesn’t have to work so hard:

    “I want, at some point, to not have to work so hard. I want peace of mind and acceptance of self, totally. I know that’s an ongoing process, so every single day I’m working on that, and it’s been hard ever since this challenge I’m having with this divorce. It was such a terrible thing. It made me see myself as ‘ I have to be better than this’: I was never good enough; I was never pretty enough, smart enough. And there was someone chosen over me. It was like, I can’t stay, but it really let me see, Mary, you are better than that. You have to continue to grow.

  11. Laverne Cox talks "insecure" men who seek trans women:

    “Men who are into trans women who want to keep us a secret and are afraid if someone thinks they are gay, they’re insecure as f**k. If someone thinks you’re gay, gay is fabulous. Gay is amazing. There’s nothing wrong with that. Toxic masculinity is bullshit.”
