While visiting The Tamron Hall Show, singer and actress <strong>Chl e Bailey, </strong>23, spoke about separating from her sister, learning to love her body, and the best advice she has received from her mentor, <strong>Beyonc .</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Chloe-Bailey.jpg" title="" /></div> Chl e Bailey Bursting on the music scene with her sister as pop duo,<strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/07/27/halle-bailey-goes-viral-after-defending-sister-chloe-bailey-against-critic-girl-lets-not-start/" target="_blank"> Chloe X Halle</a>,</strong> <strong>Chl e Bailey </strong>says going solo 'happened very naturally' but sooner than she thought. She said, <strong>"My sister got the role of Ariel and I'm so proud of her and with that, she had to go to London for about eight months and you know it almost turned into two years because of the pandemic so with that we were separated. It was really hard for the both of us, we had separation anxiety."</strong> <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=Eeg0YfHe87o" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/Eeg0YfHe87o/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> She added, <strong>"We both knew one day we would do our own projects we just didn't know it would come so fast.

She eventually felt confident to release it however, that did not end the anxiety. She added, <strong>"I had to do a lot of soul searching. I had to talk to myself a lot and remind myself that my voice is special and what I have to say matters because I did have a bit of separation anxiety where I was like 'Am I even good on my own?' I was even doubting my singing voice and my ability to perform because I love to perform, I love to dance, so there was a lot of that.</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Chloe-Bailey-thejasminebrand-1.png" title="" /></div> Chl e Bailey But the insecurities did not stop at her voice. The 'Have Mercy' singer says although she loves her 'backside and curves,' she was still insecure about her image. She said, <strong>"This is the best feeling...when beautiful women of all ages come up to me and say you inspire me to be more confident in my body. That means everything because you don't know how long it's even taken me to feel confident in this skin I am in. Even today, I struggle with my weight - all of that - so the version that people see of me where they think I'm ultra-confident is not me on daily."</strong> <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=FfesqRkdSEk" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/FfesqRkdSEk/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> She added, <strong>"I'm 23 now and I'm growing into my own. Even though I have a baby face and on the inside, I feel like a child, but on stage, I feel like the grown woman that I am and I think for me, I've always been in tune with myself and I'm insecure a lot of times but I've always loved my backside and my curves and who I am as a woman."</strong> She continued <strong>"And I think it is so special and important for women to admire themselves, and believe in who they are and not wait for the world to tell them they're beautiful and special." </strong> Following her<a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/18/chloe-bailey-says-i-swear-i-didnt-know-i-licked-the-mic-in-vma-performance/" target="_blank"> MTV VMAs performance</a> last month, many started comparing the 'Grown-fish' star to her mentor <b>Beyonc </b>.

She said, <strong>"It was a blessing we was able to get [our son] Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos."</strong> She continued, <strong>"And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that's why we decided we would consider surrogacy."</strong> She added, <strong>"Todd and I are both nervous about it. I think it's easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he's used to somebody else carrying the baby. But for me it's a little bit harder for me to deal with the thought because I'm supposed to carry my own kids in my mind.

The album was led by hit songs like "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" and "Poetic Justice." <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=yyr2gEouEMM" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/yyr2gEouEMM/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Additionally, others pointed out that <strong>Kendrick Lamar </strong>was recently announced to perform at the <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/30/dr-dre-snoop-dogg-eminem-mary-j-blige-kendrick-lamar-will-perform-at-the-super-bowl-halftime-show/" target="_blank">Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show</a> and the upcoming Day N Vegas music festival.

As you may know, a tell-all on The Real Housewives-titled Not All Diamonds and Ros -was released earlier this week. The book, authored by <strong>Dave Quinn</strong>, gives Housewives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the popular series' various franchises and numerous stars. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Not-All-Diamonds-and-Rose-394x600.jpg" title="" /></div> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Dave-Quinn.jpg" title="" /></div> Dave Quinn At one point in the highly-anticipated tell-all, controversial RHOP star <strong>Candiace Dillard </strong>calls out <strong>Andy Cohen</strong>-the longtime host of all Housewives reunions! Specifically, the 34-year-old reality star dished on how she felt unsupported by the Bravo exec after her memorable physical altercation with former co-star <strong>Monique Samuels</strong>. As most fans of RHOP will recall, <strong>Monique Samuels </strong>infamously attacked <strong>Candiace Dillard </strong>during a season 5 episode of the series. The pair had feuded on-and-off for some time before the incident, and the fallout from the ordeal still divides much of the RHOP fanbase to this day. <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=fB1cJIw11j0" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/fB1cJIw11j0/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> In Not All Diamonds and Ros , <strong>Candiace </strong>reveals that <strong>Andy Cohen </strong>failed to reach out to her following her altercation with <strong>Monique</strong>. Resultingly, she accuses him of not caring about the women's well-being, saying: <strong>"I even reached out to Andy's assistant and asked for him to call me. Nothing. That's f**ked up. I know he has well over a hundred Housewives, all texting and calling him all the time. But how many of them were physically attacked on camera by their costar? The fact that he couldn't even schedule ten minutes to reach out to me? You don't give a f**k. You are making money off of our backs and feeding your son with it, and you just don't give a f**k about us and you can't tell me that you do. And when I saw him, I did say it to his face."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Candiace-.jpg" title="" /></div> Notably, <strong>Candiace </strong>later apologized for "fussing" at <strong>Andy </strong>in the book. Yesterday, she uploaded a photo of her and other stars of the series-mostly from RHONJ-and, in part, captioned the post: <strong>"Celebrating our incredibly gifted and deserving friend @ninedaves and the legacy that is this CRAZY, beautiful, legendary planet called Housewives.

As previously reported, earlier this month news broke that <strong>Kyrie Irving</strong>, 29, is ineligible to play or practice with his team, the Brooklyn Nets, due to the NBA's COVID-19 vaccine protocol. During a recent discussion on TNT's 'Inside the NBA' tip-off show, <strong>Charles Barkley</strong> made it very clear that he doesn't agree with <strong>Kyrie's</strong> stance. He said, <strong>" I got vaccinated, I can't wait to get the booster. You don't get vaccinated just for yourself. Like Adam [Silver] said, you get vaccinated for your family first, you get vaccinated for your teammates second. Things like that. That's what bothers me about this whole thing."</strong> He continued, <strong>"I really am proud of the Nets for putting their foot down - for saying 'no, we're not going to deal with this half on, half off [situation]. The only thing that bugs me is he's still going to make $17 million [for] sitting at home."</strong> The retired NBA player added, <strong>"People are saying he's like [Muhammad] Ali. First of all, don't ever compare anyone to Ali. Ali went three years without boxing when he was the highest-paid athlete in the world."</strong> &nbsp; View this post on Instagram &nbsp; <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CVQSHGkFvZ6/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by the Jasmine BRAND (@thejasminebrand)</a> Last week (Oct. 13), <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/10/14/kyrie-irving-speaks-on-not-being-allowed-to-play-for-brooklyn-nets-due-to-vaccination-status-its-about-choosing-whats-best-for-you-suggests-he-was-promised-he-wouldnt-have-to-get-vaccine/" target="_blank"><strong>Kyrie</strong></a> broke his silence on his COVID controversy and said, <strong>"It's not always about the money-it's about choosing what's best for you.

Kelly Temporarily Placed On Suicide Watch Immediately After Guilty Verdict + Singer's Child Pornography Trial To Begin Aug. 1st In Chicago There is a new update on <strong>R. Kelly</strong>'s well-being, as well as his upcoming Chicago-based trial. Late last month, <strong>R. Kelly</strong> was found <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/27/r-kelly-found-guilty-on-all-counts-in-racketeering-sex-trafficking-trial/" target="_blank">guilty on all counts</a> in his highly-anticipated sex trafficking trial in Brooklyn. The 54-year-old disgraced singer will be sentenced on May 4th, and he faces anywhere from 10 years to life behind bars. Yesterday (Wednesday, Oct. 20th), <strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/10/06/vivica-fox-shuts-down-fans-speculation-that-she-knew-of-r-kellys-wrong-doings-i-had-no-idea-he-was-abusing-young-women/" target="_blank">R. Kelly</a> </strong>had his first court hearing since being convicted back on Sept. 27th. The hearing was in regards to <strong>R. Kelly</strong>'s upcoming trial in Chicago, where he will face child pornography and obstruction of justice charges beginning on Aug. 1st, 2022. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Screen-Shot-2019-01-09-at-10.45.53-AM.png" title="" /></div> R.Kelly While the recent court hearing was to set a date for <strong>R. Kelly</strong>'s Chicago trial, attorney <strong>Steve Greenberg </strong>made quite a revelation about the singer. The attorney stated that, after being found guilty, <strong>R. Kelly</strong> was placed on suicide watch-though it was later lifted by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. It's also worth noting that <strong>Steve Greenberg </strong>didn't suggest <strong>R. Kelly </strong>was suicidal, and recently-convicted people are commonly placed on increased monitoring in many U.S. prisons. This news comes over three months after <strong>Steve Greenberg </strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/07/16/r-kelly-judge-allows-2-of-his-lawyers-to-withdraw-just-weeks-before-trial-slams-his-only-female-lawyer-for-calling-2-women-involved-in-the-case-girls/" target="_blank">officially withdrew</a> from <strong>R. Kelly</strong>'s sex trafficking trial in Brooklyn. The decision came due to conflicts between the various lawyers on the singer's legal team. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/R.-Kelly-lawyer-tweet-1.png" title="" /></div> However, both Greenberg and another attorney-Michael Leonard-are expected to be involved in R.

Initially, the reality TV star revealed she got a breast lift and reduction. While she and interviewer <strong>Jasmine Brand </strong>were on the subject of breasts, <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2021/09/09/kenya-moore-confirms-rhoa-cast-will-be-shaken-up-for-new-season/" target="_blank"><strong>Kenya Moore</strong></a> stated: <strong>"This is a direct result of a breast lift and reduction! They are sitting, honey-they are definitely sitting now."</strong> She then revealed that her breasts ultimately increased to a G cup after giving birth to her daughter, <strong>Brooklyn Daly</strong>. She remarked: <strong>"After Brooklyn, my breasts never stopped growing."</strong> <strong>Kenya </strong>then dished on her breastfeeding experience and revealed that her body bounced back just three weeks after switching her daughter to formula: <strong>"I breastfed for like three months... [My breasts] definitely got bigger, but I wasn't producing a whole lot of milk. Like, I was struggling with the whole milk situation. They got bigger, but after I stopped breastfeeding my body went right back like after three weeks. I was surprised! Because of my age, I was like 'I don't know.' But I knew I took care of myself, I knew that I had really good abs and a good core, [but] I was just like 'I just don't know at my age.' And then at three weeks I just looked down and my tummy was flat and I didn't have stretch marks. I was like 'Oh my God, thank The Lord!' I think it was [from] me taking care of myself and working out all the time."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Kenya-Moor-and-Brooklyn-Daly.jpg" title="" /></div> Kenya Moore and Brooklyn Daly <strong>Kenya Moore </strong>then segued to discussing her time on DWTS, as she's currently starring on the series' 30th season, dancing alongside <strong>Brandon Armstrong</strong>. She initially revealed that she's been a longtime fan of the show and said that her late grandmother, <strong>Doris</strong>, is the one who fostered her love for dance: <strong>"I've watched it from the beginning. I used to watch it with my grandmother-she's the one that introduced me to dance. If you guys know anything about me, you know that my grandmother raised me since I was like three days old. She introduced me to dance. We didn't have money, so she took us to like this free community center in Detroit. And they had the free classes and we just had to kind of raise money for our little costumes for our recital... I was about 5 or 6 years old, and when I tell you I have never been happier than dancing. Like I love to dance... But my grandmother's the one who introduced me to dance, and I have just had a love for it ever since."</strong> <strong>Kenya </strong>then stated that, while she had been invited to appear on DWTS before, she was never able to do so because of other responsibilities: <strong>"When Dancing with the Stars came out, I was like 'Oh my God, I wanna do this show so badly!' But it just never lined up. I've been offered to do it before, but because of my schedule or other things it just never worked out. Because production was pushed on Real Housewives, I was like 'This is the first time I'm actually gonna be able to do it.'"</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image2"><img id="bvimg2" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Kenya-Moore-and-Brandon-Armstrong-595x565.jpg" title="" /></div> Kenya Moore and her 'DWTS' partner, Brandon Armstrong She then continued to gush about being on DWTS, saying: <strong>"I'm finally here, and I'm enjoying every single minute of it! When I tell you I have never been happier, I am so happy on that dance floor-it's just unbelievable!"</strong> <strong>Kenya </strong>then acknowledged the support she's received from RHOA co-star <strong>Kandi Burruss</strong>, who live-streamed the premiere episode on her Instagram. <strong>"She was so supportive... Her fans were excited, my fans were excited, and they all went out to vote also! And I think it just really helped me a lot for the first two episodes."</strong> <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image3"><img id="bvimg3" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Kandi-Burruss-thejasminebrand.png" title="" /></div> Kandi Burruss <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=rENzo5xqFnU" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/rENzo5xqFnU/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> Shortly thereafter, <strong>Kenya Moore </strong>acknowledged a less-glamorous aspect of DWTS: injuries! Specifically, she spoke on recently injuring her ribs: <strong>"I have a contusion on two of my ribs. When I was in the air in the Moana dance, the last spin when I was way up on his shoulders, as soon as he [put me in the air] I felt like my rib literally rolled over on the other rib. I remember being in the air thinking 'I just broke my rib!' I've never broken a bone in my life, and it literally felt like my rib rolled on top of the other rib out of place... I am still injured. I've been seeing the doctor, he's been giving me treatments and I'm patched up. I have so many injuries-this old horse ain't what she used to be!... But I'm still here!"</strong> She also acknowledged the emotional side of being on DWTS: <strong>"I was crying the other day in bed after that second elimination. It just got to me-everything just got to me... It was a lot of stress. But I'm not the only one that felt it-a lot of other people felt it [because] we're not used to this rigorous kind of schedule. And after that night, when I was saved, I remember just being in my bed. I felt defeated and alone and was like 'I don't know what's happening.'"</strong> <strong>Kenya </strong>continued: <strong>"But then the next day I woke up [and picked myself up]. I'm the only woman of color there, and I have to represent for my sisters! So I'm out here for you guys-I'm out here for my grandmother, for my daughter, and I just want to be an example of strength. And in that strength is beauty. That's one of my goals here: to show people you can live your dreams."</strong> <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=QqbHfjZUCWY" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/QqbHfjZUCWY/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> <strong>Kenya Moore </strong>then addressed the importance of her fans voting for her on DWTS and told viewers how they could vote: <strong>"I think that I have a lot of fans out there and people that are rooting for me, but they have to vote. And there's two ways to vote-you can text 'Kenya' to 21523. You can do that 10 times!... You can then go on ABC.com and vote another 10 times, so now you have 20 votes per phone!"</strong> She also specifically shared some advice for fans living on the West Coast: <strong>"People on the West Coast have to vote in East Coast time when the show is live. So if it's live at 8 [EST], it's not live at 5 on the West Coast. But they can vote on the West Coast at 5 [PST] because it's during the live show. If they wait until they see the show on TV, it's already done. It's already decided. So they have to make sure they vote Eastern Time-as soon as 8 p.m. [EST] comes on, vote! Don't wait-don't wait to see me, don't wait to see what's going on with other couples. Just vote! Just vote 10 times, text 'Kenya' to 21523 and go on ABC.com and vote another 10 times. [The show airs] Mondays live.</strong> <strong>Kenya </strong>added: <strong>I know Team Twirl is voting, but we have to be consistent with our votes and vote every week! One week is not enough because after the show airs, your scores are wiped clean and you have to do it all over again."</strong> <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=KJq_LUw8B_Y" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/KJq_LUw8B_Y/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> You can watch the full interview down below: <center><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=YXAWAHJlb_Q" target="_blank"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/YXAWAHJlb_Q/default.jpg" border="0" /> Watch Video on YouTube</a></center> <strong>What do you think about our EXCLUSIVE interview with Kenya Moore?

Last night (Tuesday, Oct. 19th), <strong>Delonte West </strong>was arrested in Boynton Beach, Florida for disorderly intoxication, having an open container, and resisting an officer. The matter started when, at around 9 p.m., <strong>Delonte West </strong>allegedly began yelling and banging on the glass lobby doors of the Boynton Beach Police Department. Once officers went to investigate the racket, they found <strong>Delonte</strong>, 38, with a can of beer and a bottle of vodka-both open. When officers confronted the former athlete, he allegedly began walking away and drunkenly screaming. They later got him into handcuffs, though they alleged he <strong>"continued to be belligerent and screaming profanities and obscure rants."</strong> <b>Delonte West </b>was reportedly released on bail earlier today (Wednesday, Oct. 20th). This news is the latest update in <strong>Delonte</strong>'s substance abuse recovery process. Last year, <strong>Delonte West </strong><a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2020/09/29/delonte-west-has-checked-into-a-florida-rehab-facility-reunited-with-his-mother-thanks-to-mark-cuban/" target="_blank">checked into a Florida rehab facility</a>. The decision came after <strong>Mark Cuban</strong>-owner of the Dallas Mavericks-helped reunite the former NBA athlete with his mother, <strong>Delphina Addison</strong>. <strong>Mark Cuban </strong>ultimately stepped in after a photo began circulating showing <strong>Delonte West </strong>panhandling on the streets of North Dallas. <div class="content-image" id="divBlogPage_Image1"><img id="bvimg1" src="https://thejasminebrand.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Delonte-West-the-jasmine-brand-482x600.jpg" title="" /></div> <strong>Mark Cuban </strong>later <a href="https://thejasminebrand.com/2020/10/15/mark-cuban-gives-update-on-delonte-west-hes-making-progress-i-hope-he-fights-his-way-through-it/" target="_blank">shared updates</a> about how <strong>Delonte </strong>was doing: <strong>"He's making progress. I just hope he stays with it. The first couple weeks are tough. </strong><strong>Going through rehab and dealing with addiction, that's not easy and dealing with mental illness, that's not easy.
